The properties lie on a moun  tain at the apex of which is the  Pathfinder.  "The Little Bertha ore is a quartz  c-irrying silver and gold, the values  of which are about equal," said Mr.  Hays. "The Pathfinder values are  principally in gold and copper. Several hundred feet of shaft.tunutl and  stope work" have shown large bodies  of ore having a general average value  of $7.50 to the"ton. On this property  is a good plant composed of an 80-  horsepower boiler, seven-drill compressor, a hoist and a pump, machinery house, bunkhouse and other  buildings. The Little Bertha property has several hundred feet of  shaft, tunnels; and stopes. showing  good, strong veins of gold-silver ore  averaging$20. to $25 to the ton.  There are some fair mining buildings and a gasoline hoist.  "By installing a tramway from  each property the ore can be removed  to the ore bunkers'over the railroad  very cheaply.; There will be a much  greater profit in handling this ore  than when copper was around .15  and 16 cents a pound and silver  around 50 and 52 cents. There are  four smelters within a radius of fifty  miles.-  "The property is owned in fee  simple by.th.e Pathfinder company  and is free from debt.

Power company of regular quarterly  dividends at the rate of $10 a' year,  while most of the copper companies  are .cutting deep into the hitherto  prevailing dividend rate, makes  timely an analysis of this company's  operations, says a Bostou report.,  The Granby company was incorporated under a special act of the  province of British Columbia in  1901, and for this reason is not subject to the war taxation laws of   the  1913.  1912.  1911.  .S3  1  United States, although,  of  course,  Corp.

At Vimy  Ridge he was wounded in the right  thigh, and received a shot from a  German officer which shattered .his  left arm just below the elbow and it  had to be amputated. He has many  interesting reminiscences of the  great war to relate. He will remain  in the city about ten days, .

The company's mining  lands are  at Phoenix, B. C., and comprise   43  claims   and   fractions    aggregating  'about   1050   acres.    The newly acquired lands  of   the  Hidden Creek  Copper company, of which  Granby  owns the entire  capital   stock,  "are  situated in the northwestern part  of  British Columbia and comprise  412  acres. This is the property now pro  viding the major part of   the   company's output.  The smelter plants are   at  Grand  Forks and Anyox, B. C.    There are  eight   blast   furnaces, having a  capacity of 4000 to 4500 tons per day.  Granby has for years been  handi  capped   by   high   cost of coke and  irregular  "deliveries.      To    obviate  these   difficulties  it  has acquired a  high grads coal property, one   seam  Of which shows 20,000,000 tons of  high grade  coking   coal.    Between  81,200,000 and  $1,500,000 will   be  spent  in   developing   and bringing  the   new property to   a   productive  stage,   all   of   which will  be  taken  from earnings; but this  should   not  interfere in any way with the  main  tpnance of the present $10 dividend  rate.  From the above expenditure Granby expects to derive an important  income, as after meeting.its own requirements it expects to have about  500 tone of coal daily to ship to  Vancouver,, where a ready market  existsat high prices.  The following operating figures  for. a series of years, ended June  30, are instructive:  1917.

It is' only in respect to proved  ore reserves that the company is  unable to "class" with some of its  competitors. Here is the latest calculation of ore assets: Tons.  3 to 4 per cent '     51,987  2 to 2$ per cent 10,296,958  1 to 1������ per cent.!  3,36S,076  Less than 1 per cent  9,476,560  Value of Production in 1917  Is Placed at Over $41,-  000,000  66  79  bS  60  51  Total 23,103,5S1  It is estimated that this tonnage  contains 663,164,028 ponndsof copper, together with gold and silver  values of 87,157,000. Treating 1,-  500,000 tons per annum this visible  tonnage will be exhausted'in fifteen  years.  At $6G per share, the recent low  price, Granby was sold ata discount  of S54 from its best price' last year,  fn fact it-is $13 per share under the  low of 1916 and only $8 above the  low of 1915.

A profit  of only 4'cents per pound on 40,-  000,000 pounds of annual output  will cover this dividend. It is clearly  to be seen that the present disburse  ments to shareholders are amply  protected unless unlooked for cash  necessities should arise. At its recent low level the investment.nets a  return of over 14 per cent.  Of course in any estimate of divisible profits adequate allowance for  war taxes must not be overlooked.  Canada's method of treating with  mining corporations in respect to  "capital investment" and exhaustion  of capital through ore depletion is  yet to be officially set forth. It is  known, however, that the wasting  assets of mining companies is to be  recognized, as the war tax law says  that the minister of finance "when  determining profits derived from  mining shall make an allowance for  the exhaustion of the mine."  Measured by all the acid testa  usually applied to copper share investments, Granby stands up well in  According to figures compiled by  E. A. Haggpn, of Vancouver, British Columbia's mineral production  in 1917 was only about $1,000,000  less than in the banner year "of 1916.  This is despite the loss of production brought about by strikes at  Trail smelter and in the coal fields.  Placer gold production shows an increase, lode gold a decrease, silver a  decrease, copper an increase, and  zinc a decrease. The total for the  year is placed by Mr. Haggen at  $41,299,668, against $42,290,462 in  1916/  METEOROLOGICAL  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the past week, as recorded by the government thermometer'on E.

Secretary of War Baker declares . that the  United States now has an army of 1,500,000 officers and that there is complete equipment for  every man. A large portion of this army, he  says, is now in France. When congress,'last  April, declared that a state of war existed between Germany and the United States the  American army consisted a couple of hundred  thousand officers and men, and the war secretary takes pardonable pride in the rapid  augmentation of his fighting forces.

This  allotment of "time" was 2520 years.  Since 1914 the "night" has set in,  and thick clouds and blackness are  now obscuring the sky of the world's  hope.

The "day of wrath" identifies the  prophecy with our day, when God  smites the nations in a helpless war  to dissolve them.  (Zeph.   3:S 9.)  James 5:1 5 says: "Come now, you  rich, weep and lament over those mis  eries of )'our.s which are approaching  Your rich storeg (cold storage plants  of food and gold) have decayed, and  your ggrments (of praise and respect)  have become moth-eaten (filled with  holes so we can see the duplicity  within).

You have laid up  treasures for the last days. . . . You  have nourished your heart (desires) in  a day of slaughter." This is the Dia-  glott translation, and the "day of  slaughter" helps us to see the prophecy refers to our day. Another item of  every subject, yet the ultimate .result  following man's extremity is clearly  shown: "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; and the Lord shall  have them in derision."

There has just been  issued a map of the European war  "area that clearly shows every point.of  interest that has been mentioned in  disgaches 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. It 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 b}r returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in'detail. The map  could riot 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 most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate Si.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 Canadiaus  '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.
