 ��������� r,        '*,   -  N  O   I"/  /  and  e Valley Orchardist  17TH YEAR���������No   15  GRAND FORKS   B   C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  T>  I  CONSERVATION-AS   "  THE DOCTOR SEES IT  Spend Social Evening With  , - -View/of Becoming- Bet-  ' - *..ter Acquainted'  The Grand Forks .Farmers' instiJ  tute gave an  enjoyable   "at - home"  , to the ranchers of  the valley, their  wives-and'friends, in' the'-Davis" ha{l  on,Wednesday.evening'"'. There was  ,    a Jarge  attendance,  the hall being  coriifortabiy filled.   The first part of  evening-was devoted  to  cards- and  other, games,   the   players  -being  treated   to  a " musical program consisting   of   vocal  and  instrumental  numbers,' and 'which   included   a-  - banjo solo and a couple of duets by  "Mr. and Mrs. Laws.   At  11 o'clock  a   very , appetizing   collation- was  served,   after   which  the   hall was  cleared for dancing, and   those " who  desired'to indulge" in' this pastime  weregivenan opportunity to  do so.  -H. W. Collins,   president  of- the  institute,   delivered   the   following  address of welcome:  '     Ladiesand Gentlemen:���������As presi.  dent of- the  Grand Forks Farmers'-  institute, I welcome you to this hall  to,have a  social  evening; and may,  we'havd these gatherings  often, not  only during tbe winter months, but  - but   during   the   summer   months  also.    The farmer and his wife and  his children are very, industrious as  a rule; their working hours are   not  limited, like nearly all other  classes  of workers.    But all the  people depend  on , the farmer for their daily  bread.    Last year   we started   out  with  our spring  work���������our motto  was patriotism and   production���������in  real earnest, but our reward in most  cases  was  very, small, not through  any fault of the farmer in neglecting  to put in his crops, as I  believe in  the majority of cases the crops were  put   in   in   first-class shape.    But  what harvest we shall reap this year  we can not say���������that' belongs   to a  higher power.    The start of another  season is just at hand.   We farmers  bear  the  call that  is coming from  distant lands���������"Food."    We", I am  sure, will respond to  that call   and  do all in our power to fill the granaries of   the  empire  with   golden  grains." I believe 1918 will be a banner year for us all, not only in   respect to our crops, but that it wil  bring peace   arid   victory  for^the  allies. *  ~" Ladies and gentlemen, boys and  girls, 1 wish you a most enjoyable  evening. If there are any persons  here who would like to join the  Farmers' institute to help along the  good work, the secretary, C. ,C.  Heaven, is here, and he will take  your subscription, which is $1 for a  year. You will receive free once a  month the Agricultural Journal.  This alone ia worth twice the amount  of your membership fee. "Victory  and a full granary" is our motto.  All those who attended went  home highly pleased with the entertainment provided them, and it  is safe to. say that the event did  much to popularize the organization  the farmers of the community  The time is passed when intelligent people give the baby a piece of.-  fat bacon to suck, and "feed themselves' on food soaked in grease;  they-would be ���������horrified by a suggestion so frought with the idea of  the slums and the mountain fastnesses of Kentucky. But in metropolitan restaurants and dining rooms  they still include in -a single meal  such foods as oysters, fish, game,  roast, and cheese. "One-half the  people in Christendom," according  to Dr. Henry Smith Williams, the  distinguished scientist" and physician who contributes the "Science"  section of Hearst's .Magazine for  February, "shorten their Jives by  over eating or by perverse eating."  And most'of trjis perversity in the  American'diet takes the form,of an  over-supply of animal protein. Just  how dangerous this kind of gorman  dising'can be is shown by (the fact  that.- 350, OuO deaths in the United  States each year can be traced to  this cause���������an increase of 4.0 per  cent in the last twenty years The  atudy of the faults and rerred es of  the American dietary is eepe^ially  valuable at this time of the" urging  of conservation for the sake of national welfare. The appeal of the  food administration is reinforced by  the judgment of a medical expert,  whose evidence and conclusions no  one can afford to ignore;  NINGDMSION  Progress of Development in  the District During the  Past Year  IES  HEART [ROUBLE  Shift Boss at Emma Mine  Passes Away While Splitting Wood  Pat O'Brien, shift boss at the Emma mine, died suddenly, presumably of some heart trouble, at his  home at the mine today. O'Brien  went out to split some wood, and as  he did not return, his wife went out  about half an hour later" to look for  him, and she found him lying near  the woodpile, dead. He was 56  years of age and leaves a wife and  two children. His home was in Rossland.  Coroner Kingston returned from  the mine this evening. He states  that death was evidently caused by  heart trouble. The body will be  brought to this city tonight, and  from here it will be shipped to  Rossland for burial.

Freeland, resident mining engineer, with headquarters in  this city, has made the following  preliminary report of tbe progress  of mining development in the Greenwood mining division during 1917  to the ,provincial department of  mines. The report is included in  Bulletin'No.- i, 1918, Preliminary  Review and Estimate of Mineral  Production ior 1917, which has just  been published by the department:  * Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power Company, Phoenix.���������This company has shipped  approximately 500,000 tons of'' ore  to the smelter at Grand Forks. This  tonnage is considerably below the  output for 1916.owing chiefly to la  bor troubles in the Crow's Nest coal  fields, which created a shortage in  coke at tne smelter, thereby causing  the closiug down of tho mines at  Phoenfx.  Canada Copper Corporation.���������  The''Mother Lode mines have baen  running steadily throughout the  year, with tbe exception of a few  weeks on account of coke shortage  at the smelter at Greenwood. The  Mother Lode has shipped 174,500  tons of copper ore (mine run) and  3941 tons of sulphides to December  1. The Sunset mine shipped 2180  tons.  Tbe Big Copper mine has been  under lease to J. Hoggi, who shipped  683 tons of copper ore���������some to  Grand Forks and some to tbe  Greenwood smelter.  The   King   Solomon, which   ad  joins the Big   Copper, shipped  267  tons of high-grade ore to Greenwood  smelter.  The Surprise No. 3 mine, about  two miles west of Phoenix, is under  lease to Mike Kanex, Joe Cunning  ham and Alex Gustafsen. The lessees opened up a copper ore body  averaging about two feet wide, by  stripping, and sunk a shaft on the  ledge 40 feet in ore. Some assays  from the shaft showed values to the  extent of I oz. silver and 7 per cent  coppea. This seems to be a promising prospect,-and has shipped seven  tons to Grand Forks averaging 6 per  cent.  The Elkhorn, near Greenwoood,  has been leased for some months to  Rowe & Matthews. The lessees have  shipped eight tons of silver ore to  Trail.  The Prince Henry mine was leased  for a few months to Johnson, Sor-  turne, Nelson <t Christensen, of  Phoenix.\.^ Seven tons of gold and  silver ore was shipped  to Trail.'  The Tip-top shipped 25 tons of  gold and copper ore to Greenwood.  There has been considerable activity in Wallace mountain, Beaver-  dell, owing to the high prices of silver and lead.  The Sally has been leased to Geo.  Hambly, and about 117 tous of me-  out    and  Grand  The Bell is also under lease to  Oliver & Mcintosh, and 192 tons of  mixed grade silver and lead ores  have been shipped to Trail and  Grand Forks.  The Kokomo claims, owned and  worked by C. M. Barrett, also silver-  lead, shipped 24 tons to Trail.  The Standard claim, owned by  W. H. Rambo, Beaverdell, shipped  41 tons of-fair-grade silver;lead ore  to Grand Forks smelter.  The Bounty Fraction shipped 17  tons to Grand Forks.  Several other prospects in 'the  vicinity of Wallace mountain have  been developed, including the following: Scandia, 40 feet of tunnel;  Rambler, open cuts; Standard Fractional; Standard, tunnel; Naponce  group, tunnel and open' cuts; Black  Diamond, tunnel and open cuts;  Beaver, tunnel and open cuts; Revenge and Sunset Fractional, Bell  Fractional tunnel and open cuts.  Two miles in a southwesterly di;  rection from Carmi, some work has  been done ,to develop the Inyo  claim, a tunnel having been run G5  feet, also a shaft 10 feet, showing a  good lead ol-silver-lead ore.  The Nipper claim has had considerable development done upon it,  though no ore in-place has been discovered as yet.  The Blue Jay, near Phoenix, has  shipped 26 tons of second-class gold  ore to Grand Forks smelter.  ANNUAL MEETING  'OF THE I.O.D.E.  $1,312.11 Passed' Through  the Treasury During the  Year Just Ended  Tuscania, With 2179 American Soldiers Aboard, Torpedoed Offlnsh Coast  The Cunard liner Tuscania, carrying 2179 American troops, was  torpedoed and sunk Tuesday off the  coast of Ireland.  The vessel was being convoyed by  British ships, and the troops aboard  included the headquarters companies D and F of the Twentieth  engineers; also aerial squadrons,  engineer trains, military police and  a replacement detachment from the  Thirty-second division, comprising  tbe National Guard of Michigan  and other middle western states,  who harPbeen in training at Camp  McArthur, Texas.  The latest report places the loss  of life among tbe soldiers at 101,  all, the others being rescued by  British destroyers and trawlers.  Fifty-five members were present  at the annual meeting of the I.O.D.  E. yesterday. Applications for  membership were made by Mrs.  Hobden, Mrs. K. Morrison, Mrs. P.  T. McCallum, Mrs. R. D. Kerr and  Mrs. R. J. Gardner, while Mrs. Bonthron and Mrs. Redmond were enrolled as members. It was decided  to send for 400 greeting cards, to be  enclosed with socks sent to the boys.  Mrs. O. M.jKingston was nominated  as councillor for the National Chapter. In view of the advance in the  price of wool, it was agreed that  socks should hereafter be sold to  members for 75 cents, and ������1 for  non-members. An interesting event  was the presentation, by the regent,  of the I.O.D.E. badge of honor to  Mrs. Rooke, to Mrs. Sharp and to  Mrs. Hales, who each has a son  serving with the colors. Votes of  thanks were extended to Mr. and  Mrs. E. F. Laws and to all who assisted in putting on the musical  comedy ''Ob,' Gertie,5'" . which was  such a success in every "way." From  the tobacco boxes around town was  collected ������4.85, which was augmented from other funds to make  the usual $10 per month for this  purpose.  The annual reports were then  read, and they showed that the sum  of $1,312.11 had passed through  the treasury during the  year.  The following officers were then  elected for the ensuing year:  Regent���������Mrs. Munro.  First Vice-Regent���������Mrs. Hales,  Second Vice-Regent���������Mrs.Gilpin.  Secretaiy���������Mrs. Davis.  Treasurer���������Mrs. Truax.  Echoes Secretary���������Mrs. Bishop.  Educational Secretary���������Mrs. Ker-  by.  Standard Bearer���������Mrs. Manly.  On behalf of tbe members, Mrs.  Munro and Mrs. Barlee then presented Mrs. Kingston, the retiring  regent, with an address and a silver  bake dish as an expression of ap  preciation for her untiring efforts as  regent since the inception of the  chapter. Mrs. Kingston replied in  her usual able mauner.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  this port, makes the following detailed report of tbe customs receipts  at tbe head office in this city and at  the various sub-customs offices, for  the  month of January,  1918:  Grand Forks  8894.49  Phoenix   709.14  Carson  111.55  Cascade  7.43  Total  81,722.61  Rainfall..  0.53  Forks.  ��������� It takes all sorts of people to make  a world; including, of course, the  woman who pays one dollar to the  Red Cross and eighteen dollars for a  knitting bag.  Fixed Prices for Bran  The food controller has fixed the  prices for bran and shorts at $24.50  and 829 50 respectively, per ton in  bulk f.o.b. Fort William. The prices  for feed at western points will be  the fixed prices less freight to Fort  William. At places west of the  points of milling, the prices will be  the Fort William fixed prices le?s  freight from mills to Fort William,  plus freight from the point of milling to destination. At eastern points  the prices will be the fixed prices,  plus freight from Fort William. The  cost in bags will be about 86.30 per  ton higher in each case.  When the kaiser dumps bis medals into the ammunition melting  pot, the end of the war will be visible even to the  naked eye.���������Puck. THE   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   #.

Every new bushel of  yc'yetaoles^next1 Ipring  and summer will re-  lease its equivalent in wheat.    It is the drops  pf..water,,in:,the; ocean that go to make up the  mighty-tide of .the Bay of Fundy. The essence  of'more-'-production does  not  mean  simply  more''acres put to  wheat,   but  more   eatable  things" from  each-man's labot.    A small area  .well Jooked  after  is often more profitable in  an .unfavorable season than a large area.    An  English;farm is  often  measured  downwards,  i.'e.j-'by'the depth of its productive soil, rather  than valued for its sheer acreage. Of the need  for all exportable Canadian food products  no  'one should longer be in doubt.    The first of a  series of fortnightly cablegrams  from   France  to the food  controller states with a plainness  that would be pitiful if it were not  so   noble  how badly off the French civilians are.   'The'  supply of breadstuff's is'causing grave,anxiety.  Imports are very short.   Our bread card " machinery has  been completed, but the present  lack of cereals will not permit of its  application," it says. What docs that mean?   Simply  that  France  is  so  short of bread that it can  not risk even a readjustment of what must be  literally 'a hand-to-month   system, lest some  should starve. Yet France fights on gloriously!  Surely a common pride in an ally fighting the  bravest fight of all the ages should be enough  to make anyone determine that in as far as in  him lies he  will aid such a noble race.    The  .cablegram adds that sugar, farinaceous  foods  other than   wheat,  bntter and meats are all  dreadfully  short and  that  oils and fats are  practically unobtainable as the only one of the  British dominions  practically    accessible to  car^o' carriers, it is manifestly "up to Canada"  to strainj every,nerve to increase the exportable quantities>pf tho.se...cpmmodities  so much  needed-Qverseas.-.i h ;-!>���������;. ;:it;i  made up his mind to get all of it. We might kill  this official by "roasting" him, but, as we have  previously remarked, wc prefer to let the man  do his own slaughtering. He'll doit if the  rope is long enough.  (t  Once mo-re the report comes from .Victoria  that Premier Brewster is to enter the federal  cabinet at Ottawa, this time .as minister of  fisheries. There may be some truth in the  present rumor, as Mr. Brewster has not denied  it. He has, indeed, admitted that a .deal is  pending, by" saying that a statement now  would be premature. If Mr. Brewster joins  tha Unionist ministry, it is quite probable that  Hon. Martin Burrell,. will retire, as it is too  much to expect that British Columbia would  be given two cabinet positions. The government would probably find some phat position  for Mr. Burrell in Ottawa or abroad. But  even if these predictions should eventuate, it  is not at "all probable that there would be a  by-election in this district, .as the two parties  would likely hold a conference, agree on a  candidate and elect him by acclamation.

The comparatively small shortage in the  city sinking fund has been a vexed question  for years. If we might be permitt������d to offer  a suggestion, and the council'sces fit to adopt  it, we can assure that body that it will have  smooth sailing ever.afterwards. Why not add  a few mills to the tax levy for a couple of  years for the special purpose of'bringing the  fund up to date? We are aware that a large  number of our citizens say that the tax rate  is high enough without this addition. But in  some of the cities west of us the ratepayers  are paying VI mills higher taxes than the  Grand Forks ratepayers. Some of these cities  are bringing their sinking funds up to date,  so there appenrs to be a precedent for this  method of financing. The present would  probably be an opportune time to inaugurate  such scheme, as money js cheaper���������in purchasing power���������today than it has ever been  in the history of Canada. It would virtually  be. like making the sinking fund- good with  50-cent dollars.  A Surprised Dinner Party  In a recently published book Sir  Henry Lucy has a charming story  of the late Ganon Ainger. The canon  was very fond of children, and set  out one night to attend a party given  "by children for .children."  ��������� '"Don't announce me," he said to  the servant. -  >  Leaving his   coat and hat  down  stairs, he. quietly opened the   drawing   room-  door, where   the buzz of  anuouncedthe presence ofcompany  Dropping on his hands and knees he  entered, making'strange' noises dis  lin'ctly resembling'tbe neighing of a  horse.    Aware of a' dead silence,'hie  looked'up, and found the guests assembled for an S o'clock   cii; n>r  re  garding   him   with  disgust not unmixed with alarm.  -The   children's   party   was   next  door. " *  J. D. McGregor, western representative of  the food controller, is organizing work in the  west from his office in Winnipeg. The cooperation of all the provincial governments in  the west has been pledged, and various progressive measures have aiready been adopted.  ; If .everybody would look after the morals in  theieuown households, the public morals  would stake.care of themselves.

One evening he stopped his horse  in   Iront   of   a   little cabin and in  quired of the old man  at   the   door  whether he might spend   tbe   night  at his home.  "Sure, partner," said the old man  "Stop and'light "  The lawyer followed bini into the  cabin There was only one room,  and in the corner of it was stretched  a bearskin, the trophy of a hunt,  and the only bed of the hunter. A  pumj kin served as a pillow. In answer to the lawyer's inquiring look,  the host pointed to the bearskin and  said with great magnanimity:  "Stranger, I tell ye what we'll do  -���������-ye take the punkin and tbe b'ar  skin, and I'il rough it."

Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy  ihair ds 'mute evidence of a neglected  scalp- of dandruff���������that awful scurf.  There - is nothing so destructive to  the hair, as dandruff. It robs the hair  of its lustre, its strength and its very  life; eventually producing a feverish-  ness and itcihing of the scalp, which if  not remedied causes the hair roots to  shrink, loosen and die���������then the hair  falls out fast. A little Danderine to-  nighir���������now���������any time���������will surely save  your. hair. ,  ���������Get a small bottle of Knowlton's  ���������Danderine from any drug store. You  surely can have beautiful hair and lots  of it if you will just try a little Danderine.    Save your hair!    Try it!  "The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  difficnlty in following the Canadian  troops in France. .There-has just been  issued a map of the European war  areathat clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. Ifc is in four colors and  about 2������x3������"feet and folded . into a  very neat cover, about' 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the regimental badges, and - coat of  arms of nearly ' every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be. produced, except in such  large, quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than'two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with'The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for. several  months back have been fighting hard  against "the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like rribst other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a yearv  making their new rate 81.25���������and  witli the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in-the : subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous .circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer  becomes known.

He Bays freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never inflames or even Irritates the  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ounce of freezone will cost very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft  corn or callus from one's feet.
