In the first game, played at Greenwood last Friday night, the Grand  -���������Forks ladies emerged from the con-  tesT-victorious by a score of 1 to 0.  A number of our citizens accompanied the home,team to Greenwood, and maintained a fusilade of  effective rooting.  In the second game at the local  rink on Tuesday night, no score  was made until two minutes of the  last period, when the home team  put in the leading tally. Both  clubs put up a great exhibition of  hockey, and there was rip lack of enthusiasm from the crowd of spectators, which was of quite respectable  proportions. The line up follows:  Grand Forks���������Goal, Margaret  Harrigan; point, Olga Frankdvitch;  cover-point, Grace Spinks; center,  Emma Needham; rover, Marjoriej  Mann; left wing, Gwendolyn Mcll  waine; light wing, Amy Franko-  vitch. :: .'.-..'

An arrangement  has now been made whereby such  correspondence can be forwarded  through the medium of Messrs.  Thos. Cook & Son, 530 St..

The letters to be forwarded must  relate only to private ne=vs and must  not contain any reference to military  or naval movements, to political and  economic conditions or the like.  The letter should be enclosed in an  envelope legibly addressed to its ultimate destination, and must be left  open in accordance with the censorship of enemy countries. This should  then be placed in another envelope  addressed to Thos. Cook & Son, 530  St. Catherine St., Montreal, together  'with a slip bearing, legibly written,  the name of the sender and also a  postal note for 25 cents to cover the  charges.

This week a carload of second-grade  ore was shipped to Canada Copper  corporation's smelter, while about  the end of the month the lessees intend shipping a carload of high-  grade ore to the smelter at Trail.  We have ventured to extract  the  following from the Warkwork (Man.)  Journal of January 23:  There   was a town of  many creeds  That never could agree  Till one winter froze them  To perfect unity.  "To save our coal, if not our   sonl,"  Said they, " 'til winter's done,  Let's close our varied churches  And worship all in one."  Ifall the creeds had one belief,  And followed gospel text,-  'T would save much coal in this   life,  And also in the next.  Progress of mining development  in Osoyoos mining division during  19-1.7, as reported by P. B. Freeland,  resident mining engneer:  - Spotted Lake.���������The Stewart, Calvert company, incorporated, industrial chemists of Oroville, Wash.,  has been operating during the year  at Spotted lake. Some 412 tons of  magnesium sulphate has been  shipped to the company's chemicai  works at Oroville. This amount  represents the tonnage of 1917 up  to-December 1. The company estimates that about,350 to 400, tons  will be shipped during December,  providing.weather conditions allow-  for transportation. Thifl tonnoge  has been/moved by means of motor  trucks.  .  Nickel Plate.���������This mine, bonded  to the late M. K. Rogers in  the Jail  of  1898   for  $60,000, has   been in  steady   operation   ever   since.    In ���������  1900-1 a concentration arid  cyanide  plant was installed'.'   Up to 1916 the  concentrates   were   shipped  to Ta-J  coma smelter for treatment and   the  tailings cyanided.    This proved expensive, latterly, owing   to  the ' in  creased  baseness   of  the ore   with  depth, which in turn increased   the  tonnage of concentrates and lowered  the grade.    To .offset this the com  pany commenced to  treat its ore by  total   cyanidation, dispensing  with  concentration, and up to "the   pres  ent   time, this  method has proved  most satisfactory.  Oregon Group.���������This group consists of the Oregon, Winchester, St.  Barnard, Savage, Two Sisters.Oregon  Fraction, and Winchester Fraction.  The Granby company had a bond  on the property during the year and  had done considerable development  to try and locate a continuance of  the ore body. Assays as high as 3.9  per cent copper, 3.40 oz. silver, and  0.12 oz. gold have been obtained  across the ledge.  Copper King Group.���������This group  consists of the Copper King, Copper  Hill, Mountain Lion, and Copper  King Extension, and is owned by  H. Northey, Olalla, and leased and  bonded to A. Hagelberg. Tunnels  were driven in this property to develop the ore body at depth. At the  time of writing this report no ore  had been struck. Surface showings  eontained fair values in copper sulphides.  Golconda.���������This mine is owned  and worked by Dan and Archie  McEachern, of Olalla. During the  year 4390 pounds of molybdenite  was shipped from this mine, containing 751.1290 lb. of MoS.; also a  few hundred pounds of copper sulr  phide.  Dolphin.���������This mine, owned by  C. VV. Jordan, of Olalla, shipped  about 72 tons of gold and copper ore  to the Granby smelter at Grand  Forks.  Horn Silver Mine.���������This mine has  has shipped eighteen carloads to the  Grand Forks smelter. One of the  carloads assayed as high as 390 oz.  silver and some gold. The owners  have been handicapped considerably owing to the lack of proper  means to develop and transport  their ore. If the high price of silver  should continue and .proper machinery be installed/there is little  doubt but that this property will  become a steady producer.  Camp McKinney.-r-A revival of  interest was shown in this camp  when a number of people from Ross-  land Trail restaked and bought some  thiity odd claims in and around tbe  old camp. It is generally understood that the high-power electric  line from Greenwood will pass  through this camp in the near future, which may offer better conditions for power for operating purposes. In the next year or some  development may be looked for.  SENDS DELEGATIO  T01  Ranchers Think It Is Time  to Start Work on An  Irrigation System  Fact & Comment  After an accident happens the  public invariably demands an investigation. If the people were as  keen in seeing.that the laws now on  statute books are enforced a great  number of these investigations  would be unncessary. . The provincial laws state that all moving  picture show operators must obtan  a provincial license, and that during.the progress of a show only one  person is allowed to be in the  oper-  The mass meeting of ranchers and  business men in the city hall on  Wednesday evening to discuss the  advisability of sending a delegation  to Victoria to impress upon the  government the urgent need of governmental aid for installing a general gavity system of irrigation in this  valley, was well attended by both  the farmers and the townspeople,  and keen interest was taken in the  subject by all those present.  J. T. Lawrence called  the  meeting to order, arid on motion  he was  chosen   chairman.   S. T, Hull  was-  selected as secretary.  The presentation of the subject  at issue took rather the form, of an  informal discussion than of a series  of set speeches. J. T. Lawrence  gave a statement of what steps had  been taken- up to the present to get  the valley under irrigation, and Al.  Traunweiser gave a clear account of  the work done by the engineers who  where sent-here last to make a pre-  lirriinary survey. They had told  him that a gravity system from  the  ating booth. '������������������We: are  credibly   in  formed that both of these provisions J main Kettle river   was  quite   feasi-  are being violated at   the local pic-j ble, aud that the cost of the  ditch  ture house. There has not been a  licensed operator here for some  months, and on almost any, night  when a show is in progress two persons may be seen in the operating  booth.  The Sun does not believe t bat the  preseut application before the city  councillor exemption from payment  of back water and light rates is  analogous to the Pacific hotel case.  The Pacific hotel was an insolvent  concern, but even at that the city  attempted to collect the bill on other  property that _ the proprietor was  supposed to own. The present application is made by a party who is  apparently solvent, and to grant his  request would be establishing a  rather dangerous precedent  Sometimes we think that the people who persist in saying that there  is only one paper printed in Grand  Forks. The statement is more of a  boost than a knock for The Sun.  News of the City  The ice carnival at tbe local rink  on Wednesday night,   given   under  the   auspices   of   the   Knights    of  Pythias and Oddfellows lodges, was  well attended in spite of the numerous other attractions. The main feature on the evening's program was tbe  broom ball game  between   members  of the two lodges.   This has become  an   annual   event,    and  many pro  fessionals have been developed.    As!  a   result,    neither  side  was able to j  score this year.    The game  will   be |  would be about $5000 per mile.  There would be difficulty, he said,  in bringing the water from across  the line, as the international water  commission had full authority to  grant this privilege.  J. A. McCallum stated that the  engineers had informed him that it  was their intention to return here  next spring to complete the survey.  The pressing,need of irrigation, the  great benefit to be derived from it,  the amount of land that could be  irrigated, the cost of the system,  how high a tax for irrigation tbe  laud would stand, and kindred subjects were treated H. C. Kerman,  C. A. S. Atwood, R. W. Hughes, E.  F. Laws, C. C. Heavens, H..W.  CoJIins and many other speakers.  The  meeting  decided to  send a  telegram   to J.  E.   Thompson, our  member   at    Victoria,    asking him  tbe advisability of a  delegation   being sent to the capital from this city  to urge our claim   to  a  substantial  portion of the 3500,000   which   the  government proposes to appropriate  at the present sessiou of the   legislature  for  irrigation   purposes iu the  province,    lo   the  event that   Mr.  Thompson advises that such a course  is necessary, the meeting decided to  send two delegates.  W. K. C. Manly  was chosen from the city, and J.  T  Lawrence will represent the farming  district.   It was decided   to defray  the   expenses   of   the  delegates by  taking up a public subscription.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1.918  The  wreck of the   Dominion   Permanent  Loan company and- the cause  of the wreck  have revived recollection of many incidents���������  that  had   long  since  receded  to  the pallid  shades of memory���������in -connctiori with the operations  of the  company in this district about  eighteen  years ago.    In   our  mind's eye, we  can see once more President Tracy Holland's  palatial private car,-with :ts capacious champagne tanks and vast cigar bunkers, standing  in the. Canadian Pacific Railway  company's  yards   in   the  city.    Once   more  that epoch-  making trip is made to Republic to drive the  golden spike at the southern terminas  of the  Kettle    Valley    line.-    Again   we    see  the  amazement on the countenances of the  members of the party when they reached  a point  eight miles this side of Republic.    There  the  road ended, and from that point  to  Republic  the journey was made by  horse  conveyance.  (There were no autos'in those days.) A length  of rails and a few ties had been transported to  Republie by team-power, and in-this  section  of the road the golden the spike  was  driven.  Theevent was duly celebrated at  both  ends  and along the entire route of the road.   A few  days later our local  contemporary  made  its  appearance,   prihtQcl   with red ink, giving account of tlie completed road from Grand Forks  to  Republic.    Red!' In the light of recent  events, what a prophetic  inspiration!    What  other   color  could  be  so  emblematic of the  life's blood of the poor  Ontario  people   who  have lost their savings in'the Dominion  Per-  man en t Loan.    Had the road been the means  of "making  Grand  Forks the greatest city in  Canada, a,persons without a perverted  sense  of justice could find no justification for its existence, if that greatness had been achieved at  the expense of the poor working people of the  past.  i scribe the use of beef and wheat in Canada by  ; decree,   but  its incidence   would be unequal  from .tlie first.

In  other  words, this is nothing less  than   unremitting  patriotic saving   of   the   foodstuffs that are  known to be wanted bv the allies. No amount  of talking can make   up   for this.    It is not a  legal question at? all, but a moral   one,   which  must be left to thc conscience of each  house-:  hold head. There is no better wa'y forthepresent  in which those who can not go bo the trenches  can  actually   help  in   the light in Europe for  moral uprightness and pure ideals of life than  practicing in each home at all times of the day  that honest carefulness  to avoid waste which  would have to be  done under a compulsory  rationing scheme.    In a way this is a new factor which hitherto it has not been  possible to  utilize.    The Canadian woman  is   here espe-  oially indicated to aid.   So far women's   work-  in the Dominion had been to do with the Red  Cross and similar works of mercy. This opens  out  the field enormously.    Every woman1 who  saves bread, beef and pork products is in fact  and deed wielding an  unseen weapon  in  the  war as truly as her sisters behind the trenches  {���������'  (f-  '*\  e  yes  SF YOU are suffering from eye-strain or  have trouble in reading or sewing, call  and have your eyes examined.

Plione3412  JOB  DEPARTMENT  Rationing is a subject that is receiving much  newspaper attention in Canada at present. It  is a thing that is as new to us in theory and  practice as war was three years and a half ago,-  That must be the ouly excuse for some things  which are written. The general assumption  is that rationing can be carried.out, just as  some people thought price-fixing would by a  mere wave of a magic pen. When it is remembered, however, that Canada's seven and a  half million people are scattered over an area  greater than Europe, thc question at once  arises, "Who is to see to the carrying out of  the rationing scheme?" For rations mean that  each family would be under an  obligation not  The executive of the lied Cross society of  Regina has asked that theadvice of the food  controller be carefully observed at any gatherings in the interests of the Red Cross aud that  if the hostess really wishes to serve food she  should at least be careful not to use the commodities most needed overseas.  "Digging his grave with his teeth" is anvold  expression for shortening life by overeating.  It now has a new and far wider application,  for it will fit the whole nation if we weaklv al-  *j  low ourselves to lessen the fighting capacity of  our own armies and those of our allies by using food that they should have. Among men  the person who is abstemious can always be  singled out for the brightness ef his eye, the  clarity of his complexion, tlie clean line of his  jaw, and his strength and endurance.

Despite the weather,  ficcidcuts, or anything that may cause  interruptions, it is seldom that your telephone fails to respond to your need. That  your service is continuous is the result of  much work behind the scenes, effort that  you never see and-seldom hear about.

The Jonathans  Size of Apples  The question of maintaining ap  pies to a good commercial'size has  begun to give some trouble, especially in varieties such as Jonathan,  Winesap, Wagener, Cox Orange and  others. ���������  -   Eruit growers ought to realize that  ' fruit spurs that beaj too heavy crops  /;������   '     ot apples become exhausted and can  not produce fruit the  next  season,  or', if they do, poor   apples  are the  result and the tree is still more  enfeebled.      Overbearing  also   stunt?  growth which, in   turn,  makes   the-  lo'iage le^s vigorous, the sap less ac  live, and the siz'; of the fruit is  re  duced   in   consequence.   We   couM,  h> ar in mind that it is the  seeds  of  the ������pple that drain the  vitality   of  th? tree and that six   good   market  fible "apples are no  harder on   the  t ee. than six miserable culls.  To overcome this the grower must  ���������'maintain soil fertility and   see  that  trees   that are bearing heavy crops  are also making  new   wood.     New  wood means new and vigorous fruit  spurs to replace the worn out  ones.'  A tree ten to twelve years old, bearing good crops,  should   make  from  twelve to eighteen inches of   grow.th  on   the main   shoots     Don't allow  ,    the trees to become too  bushy; thin  out. the surplus wood and let in   the  air  and   sunshine;   prur.e a  little  every   vear   rather  than heavily at  - long intervals.   How to maintain soil  fertility when fertilizer prices are too  were very small when first seen.  Seven days after being irrigated near  the trunk the difference was very  marked indeed, and bv harvest time  these' apples were among the best  we have seen for good, even size.  The Winesaps did not respond 60  quickly, but apples ihat would have  been worthless weie brought to a  fair size.  Points to be remembered:  Maintain soil fertility and humus  contents in the soil  Prune little and often.  Air and sunshine are essential for  quality in apples.  Thin   to   one  apple  in one bud  cluster.  Maintain, whenever possible, uniform moisture.  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 fevcrish-  ness and itdhing 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 tonight���������now���������any time���������will' surely save  your hair. '     .  Get a, small bottle of Knqwlton'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  er  Refinancing of the-Canada Copper  corporation has been accomplished  and the entire new issue of $2,500,-  000 bonds has been underwritten  and subscribed, says a New York  report.  ���������3-----  With the funds .thus provided  construction work on tbe company's  new mill at Princeton will be pushed  as rapidly as possible, and the management states that unless' there  shall be unual delays in the receipt  of materials or an acute labor shortage, the plant will be   finished  and  ready   to   put   into   operation  by  high is to be thought of.    Barnyard  March or April of next year.  manure well worked round the trees  ���������   but not coming in contact with   the  birk, will always stimulate growth,  and   the  turning under of crops of  legumes   such  as  red clover, hairy  vetch, or common spring  vetch, the  seed of which is much cheaper  and  yields a good crop   to  turn   under  are   the best   methods to stimulate  growth, as they add nitrogen to  the  soil in an available form.    Thinning  the crop must  not   be neglected, as  ofchaadists   who   have  persistently  throned   to   one  apple  to one bud  cluster get the finest frxiit   and   the  biggest.crops.. To orchardists where  irrigation is practicable the svay to  help "size up" small apples is to run '  an irrigation furrow not   more  than  two or three feet from the   trunk of  the tree and see that this part of the  orchord gets a good soaking.    If the j  furrow   can   not   be   made    close!  enough   to   big   trees   it should be j  curved in closer to the. tree   with  hoe.  The new plants will have a capacity of 3000 tons daily, and when  completed and operating should enable the Canada Copper coporation  to assume a place among the big  copper producers.  Canadian homes will no longer have  diflicnlty   in following  the Canadian  troops in France. ThereThas just been  issued   a   map   of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest   that has  been mentioned in  dispaches since the  Canadian   forces  first landed in France.   Tt  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.    It   is   in   four colors  and  about 2^-x3^*feet and folded into   a  very neat cover, about  5x10   inches.  Tlie 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 asmost   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  aga^st the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, 'is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with 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.
