THRIFT MAGAZINE  MAKES ITS DEBUT  Mayor Harkness and all the alder-  OFFICERS OF THE  men except McCabe were present at      FARMERS' INSTITUTE  ���������the   regular   meeting   of   the city  council on Monday evening.  A letter lrom S'. 'J. Miller, protesting against the payment of  sprinkling fees, was referred to the  water and light committee.  The medical health officer's report  for 1918 was read and accepted. The  record  of infectious diseases during  v the year was as follows:  No.  Typhoid.........    9  Scarlet fever     5  Tuberculosis  ..    6  Sp. Influenza...341  ^Improved.  There were still fifteen or sixteen  cases of influenza in the city. The  disease was of a mild form, and  nearly all the cases had been brought  into the city f iom outside districts.  A letter from the minister of  lands, Victoria.thought there should  be hearty cooperation between the  government and municipalities in  assis.ing returned soldiers to re  sume civilian life. He also desired  information as to the number of vacant houses in. the city. The letter  was referred to the finance commit���������  tee.  A long c immunication from the  the soldiers' re establishment com  mission regarding the re-establishment of returned soldiers to civil  life contained a card of questions.  The clerk was authorized to supply  tbe information desired.  The mayor proposed a scheme  whereby one man be employed to  do all the work in the various departments, ie., repair sidewalks and  leaks iu the waterworks system,look  after the cemetery grounds, etc.  The matter was discussed briefly  and then iaid over until the next  meeting for further consideration.  A resolution was adopted to the  effect that the city will not be responsible for any labor engaged by  any city employee, except such as  has been sanctioned by the city  clerk, and that notice to this effect  be printed in the local papers.  On motion, the clerk was instructed to write to City Engineer Reid  and ask him to either accapt of reject the above resolution by  5 p.m.  on Thursday.

It is edited by W. J. Dunlop, B.A.,  director of the schools section of the  W.S.S. organization, who is also  editor of The Schooi. The especial  purpose of this publication is to  further the war savings and thrift  stamps movement among the  schools of the Dominion. Ten numbers are to be published by June,  the intention being to bring them  out at fortnightly intervals. The  Thrift Magazine is supplied free to  every teacher in Cnanaaa and may  be had on application to, the office  of publication, 371 Bloor St. West,  Toronto. Pupils, school inspectors,  public libraries and persons generally interested in thrift education  may also receive the magazine by  applying to this address.  The estimated mineral production  .in British Columbia during the  year 1918 is placed at $41,083,993,  according to a preliminary review  and estimate prepared in   Victoria.  The total esiimaitd value of production for last .year is, therefore,  $4,071 701 greater than in 19.17, or  equivalent to an increase of 11 per  cent. Only once in the history of the  province's mineral statistics has this  output been exceeded, and that was  in 1916, wheu the year's mineral  output amounted to $41,290,462,  only 2 per cent greater than in 1918.  Copper estimated to have been  produced in 1918, as compared with  the previous year, shows an increase  in the quantity. Owing to the lower  market selling price, however, there  is a natural decrease in value. Pro  duction in 1918 is estimated at 63,-  387,010 pounds, which is 4,379,443  pounds greater than the output of  1917.' The value for 1918 is estitna-  tated to be  $15,681,947, and   when  49,770 pounds; grand .total, 63,387,-  010 pounds.  Estimated production of lode gold  during 1918 is placed at 83,250,895,  as compared with ������2,367,190 for  1917, showing an increase of $8S3,-  705, or 37 per cent.  The recovery of placer gold for'  1918 is estimated at 8308.0-.i0, of  which practically all is obtained in  the Cariboo and Casiar districts,  only about one-tenth of the total  coming from the other sections. In  1917 the total value of placer gold  amounted to $496,000. During the  last fonr years the production of  placer gold in the province has  steadily decreased. Economic con  ditions or high prices of labor and  supplies are cited as the principal  reason for the fallisg off.  Forecasted  Legislation  Victoria, Jan. 30.���������Legislation  forecasted in the speech from the  throne included the following'  Standardization of educational  text-books, in line with united action of the western provinces.  "Necessary amendments" to the  prohibition act.  Disfranchisement of deserters and  draft evaders.  Authorization of the appointment  of a public utilities commission.  The establishment of a public li  braries commission. . -  Further relief for returned soldiers  in tax sales.  Better regulation of public schools  compared with 816,038,256 made in  in alien communities  ED  The Humble ''Quarter"  Is Now Being Mobilized  in the Service of the  Gountry  1917, shows a decrease of  $356,310.  On|the other hand it is pointed out  that there is an encouraging factor  in the comparison because, notwithstanding lower market prices, the  provincial production of copper,  shows an increase in quantity of  metal produced of about 7.4 per  cent more than in the previous year.  Estimated copper production according to, districts is as follows:  Skeena division, 30,925,928 pounds;  soutberu eoast division, 19,470,760  pounds; Boundary Yale district, 10,-  324,992 pounds; Trail Creek divis  sion, 2,043,560 pounds; Omineca  division, 562,000 pounds; all others,  Superannuation of public servants  and amendments to the civil service  act.

He  is also a man of international standing. The advantages of the war saving plan are obvious to him, as the  following statement shows:  "During this reconstruction period  the question of eliminating unemployment is one of the vital problems, and the government, by the  carrying on of essential public works,  etc., can materially help and thus  stabilize the labor market. In order  to do this money must be forthcoming.  "The pre-war methods of financing were fouud unequal to the requirements of war time, and regulations imposed by other countries  made it necessary to secure money  direct from the people of Canada.  The Bale of Victory bonds was instituted and the marvelous success  achieved proved the value of the  policy of placing the purchase of  these within the reach of the greater  number by introducing the low denomination of fifty dollars.  "Even greater success can be  achieved by still further reducing  the minimnm amount which can be  subscribed, and Canada has now decided, through its war thrift stamp  saving scheme, to offer opportunities  by which not only men and women,  but the children of the country, can  help to provide the money which is  still urgently needed to carry on.  The humble "quarter" is at last being mobilized into the country's  service. All should lend their aid  and make the aggregate sum secured  so large as to prove for all time that  the workers of Canada can finance  their own undertakings."

FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1919  WHERE IS YOUR EYE?  PROVERBS, axioms, observations���������whatever you call them���������are remarks founded  on the experience, not of one person, but of  many. If a (.remark were made by one person  that had no application except to "some particular thing in his own experience, it would,  not be repeated. Because a remark is repeated  shows that it applies to everybody's experience,  and after it is repeated it gets into the proverb class. And, if you will observe, it makes  no difference what age or what people the remark first applied to, its application is true and  direct at any time and at any place.  . Not only that, but the meaning of a proverb  is diversified, that is the same principle of  thought or action apply to many things in  one's experience. For instance, there is the  saying, "A watched pot never boils." If you  want boiling water and wait anxiously for it,  the time it takes the water to boil seems much  onger than on other occasions. Go about some  other work, however, and you are surprised  how quickly you get what you are after.  Apply the remark to one's daily labor. A  ���������man wants money, he wants an easier job, per-,  -haps, but if he goes around constantly looking  for either, he finds they are a long time coming. Supposing on the other hand, he keeps  busy, knuckles down to his work, and what is  the result? .First thing he knows, the boss  notices he is busy, and raises his pay. Then he  is promoted. He has kept on working on so  that he is familiar with all details of his daily  occupation, and that is the kind of man who  succeeds to the best positions. Even then he  keeps busy, for he has found it pays.  The highest paid executives started mostly  at the bottom. They have to if they want to  know the details of their work, for unless they  know the details they can not hope to be given  the place of overlooking the work of others.  The *story is told of Charles M. Hays, who  was president of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, and who went down when the steamer  Titanic sank in mid-Atlantic, that as a clerk  in the railway offices where he started on his  career he was known as the young man who  never watched the clock. A superior in a rush  one day shouted for the time, but young Hays  had to go and look at the clock. He was singled out for observation after that, and his  promotion was rapid.  After all, it is sticking to one's job that  counts���������that's the main priniciple. It seems  that in these days there are more things than  there ever were to distract a man and divert  his attention . Notice this, however, it is not  the busy man that comes around with suggestions on the advisability of doing something that would interfere with the even swing  of the machine!')7. Nor is it a busy man who  circulates stories of how much better off a man  would be under other conditions.  Keep your eyes open next time yon hear  someone talking of the great betterment that  is probable in one's circumstances if certain  other conditions existed. Ask yourself what  does the person work at who makes such  statesmeuts, and if he is not working, why  isn't he? Inquire about the conditions referred to. If thoy have not been tried out, how-  does he or anyone else  know   what  are to "  the  benefits   therefrom?  Tf they have  been  tried out, what were the actual results?  These are some of the distractions that keep  a man from following that which is in his best  interest. They tend to have him seek'.,for  more money, another job, rather than .better*  ing himself where he is. He will find, too,  that if he heeds the suggestion that is not in  so  his personal interest, he will pass up the main  chance. r  If you want a potto boil sooner, you build  a better fire. If you want to attain your ambition, improve your job.  f=  The provincial government has passed an  order-in-council prohibiting dancing, both  public and private, until further notice. The  inveterate terpsichorean will now have a  splendid opportunity of analyzing the feelings  of the man who used to take a "night cap"  before retiring at niaht.  Even our own industrial institutions appear  to be in need of some doctoring. In the United States there are reported to be ten million  idle men at present, and in Toronto it is said  there are fifty applicants for every vacant job.  This is an unnatural condition at a time when  one-half of the world is on the verge of starva-  tion. ...,  "That man wanted a hundred thousand dollars for his little bit of political influence!"  exclaimed the henchman. "Yes," rejoined  Senator Sorghum sadly,"'"and no way on earth  to have him yanked up for profiteering!"

Mrs. John Morrison and children  are  suffering from influenza.  H. D. Griswold, manager of the Inland Empire mine at Paulson, left on Saturday for a  business trip to Nelson.  John McDonald, of Phoenix, part owner of  the Union mine in Franklin camp, was in the  city on Wednesday.  A farewell dance was given in the Davis  hall last Friday evening in honor of Mr. and  Mrs. E. F. Laws, who expect to leave in a few  clays on a theatrical tour through Alberta.  E. E.

The Granby company has posted notices at  its smelter in this city of its intention to reduce wages according to the schedule affected  by the reduced price of copper. The official  price of copper has not been announced.  Malcolm Morrison, who was a patient in  the Grand Forks hospital for some time, has  recovered from his illness and returned on  Saturday to his home in Midway.  Frank Wooley had this face badly lacerated  in an auto accident up the North Fork recently. No one appears to knew how the ac-  dejit occurred.
