C, FRIDAY, JULY 19, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  EVIL DAYS FOR  THE LOAFERS  Should Be No  Mercy   for  Tramps and Poolroom  Sports in Canada  The loafers and merely nominal  workers of the North American continent have fallen upon evil days.  Both in Gananda and the United  States the law has now set its face  severely against them. On July 1  the United States iederal order,"as  drawn up by Provost Marshal Enoch  Crowder, went in effect. All men of  draft age, that is, between the ages  of eighteen and fifty, have now to  be engaged in some productive employment or get into the army. This  federal order is being re-enforced by  anti-loafing laws enacted by the  state legislatures.  The provost marshal has defined  productive and non-productive occupations, and there is no escape for  those who can not be classed among  the productive workers if they are  of draft age. Non-productive occupations in the United States arede fined  as follows:  First���������Persons   engaged   in    the  serving of food or drink, or either,in  "public places, including hotels  and  social clubs.  Second���������Passenger elevator operators, attendants, doormen, footmen,  carriage openers and other attendants in club-:, hotels, stores, opera  houses, office buildings and bath  houses.  ��������� Third���������Persons, including ushers  and other attendants, engaged and  occupied in connection with games,  sports and amusements, except  actual performers in legitimate concerts, operas and theatrical performers.  Fourth���������Persons employed in domestic service.  Fifth���������Sales clerks and other  clerks employed in stores and other  mercantile establishments.  If a man of draft age registered  in due course and waiting his selection for tha draft be   not employed  in productive occapation, or if he be  idle partially or completely, he must  hold himself on immediate call   for  the army.   The regulation is applicable to idle registrants, to gamblers  of all descriptions and  employees of  race   tracks   and  bucket shops, to  fortune tellers, clairvoyants, palmists  and people of such vocations. If the  board of appeal so judge, idlers may  have   their   deferred   classification  withdrawn and their   names will be  reported to tbe adjutant  general  of  the state for military   service.    The  only excuses for idleness   and nonproductive employment on the  part  of a man  of  military age   are  set  down   as sickness, reasonable vacation, lack of reasonable opportunity  for employment,temporary absences  from  regular   employment, not   to  exceed   one   week, unless   such are  habitual and frequent or   domestic  circumstances involving hardship to  dependants if a change of  employment were ordered, or   where   such  change would necessitate night work  on the part of women under unsuitable conditions.  sheriffs, state po ice, district attorney magistrates, other officers of  the law, and the state industrial  commission, under the state anti  loafin legislation, are combined to  enforce the federal order and assign  men where necessary to jobs of ������  productive character. It is estimated  that 1,000,000 will change their employment as the result of this order  of Gen. Enoch Crowder. It is pointed out, hovvever,that no man should  give up his present employment,  even though of the ^non-productive  class, until he has either procured  work at an essential industry or  such work as has been procured for  him, as it is recognized tbat a man  employed at non-essential' work is  better than a man not employed at  all.  Canada's anti-loafing law has been  in operation since early in April,  and every male person over sixteen  and under sixty years of age, unless  a bona fide student, or physically  unfit, or personally unable to find  employment, must be engaged in  some useful occupation.  In Canada the most essential in  dustry at the present time is agricultural. Food production iB a neces  sity of the summer of 1918, and the  saving of the harvest is the necessity  of the present moment. More than  65,000 able bodied men, in addition  to the men already employed on the  land, such as the Soldiers of the  Soil and the boys and women of  other organiza'tions, will be needed  to save the crops this season. There  is no room for loafers; no time for  idlers, and there should be no  mercy for tramps and mere pool  room sports.  CANADA'S PART  IN GREAT WA!

Fifty cannon had been counted  and thousands of machine guns.  Northwest of'Chateau Thierry the  Americans captured large numbers  of prisoners and an equally important quantity of munitions and  stores.  The captures south of Soissons in  the way of stores wers immense and  included some airplanes, which the  enemy was unable to move, so  swiftly did the storming troops  sweep through. Many prisoners and  many guns still remain to be  counted.  The American troops had carried  all before them by late in the afternoon, and had proceeded so fast  that cavalry was thrown into the  action. All the American bead  qu&rters staff tonight were well inside  the territory which the Germans  had this morning.

There   was  nothing more deceptive than the map.  It seemed to be so small, but when   I  arrived there I realized what a gigantic country ifc was, not merely because  it was a country   whose   shores    were  lapped by three great oceans, but  be  cause it was a country of infinite   resources   and   possibilities.    I confess  that had I not  seen   the   country   I  could nob have said this.  "It gave my a glimpse of the im  mense future before the country, with  its infinite variety of resources and  weather. (Laughter.) I got there in  September, I remember. I got as far  as Ed monton,. because -there was a  blizzard sometime in December.  (Laughter.)       : >,>  "But that it was a climate to pro  duce a great and. vigorous race I real  ized and then felt in.stinctly that  Canada would one day play a very  great part in the history of the world.  I did not realize how soon that time-  would come It has come and sooner  than any of us expected.  "I won't say that it was the begin  ning of Canada's history, because you  had history before, but it is the first  time you have been projected on the  CBnvas of the world. I remember the  begiuning well. 1 remember we were  trying to get up an army in oder to  fight what we believed was a battle  of international right and liberty, because, believe me, on my conscience,  we had no other thought when we entered this war.   (Cheers.)  "Where should we   turn    first   for  help but to our own people.  They saw  we were hard pressed   and   that   our  armies   were   being   driven   back by  overwhelming forces.  "We looked to the west toCanada.  There was no need to say come and  help.  "Canada sent a wonderful offer,  even before war was declared. They  sent in six months a whole division,  aud that division in nine months was  covered with undying glory.  "Believe me, that was tho beginning of the world history of Canada.  It was a thrilling deed, that story of  your first division.  "I remember sitting in the war-  cabinet and the news coming that the  Germans had attacked with poison  gas. We thought that was outside the  possibilities of even German warfare.  "The next thing we heard was the  story of the first Canadrau division,  how they restored the situation.  "This is the great event of your  history. It will go down forever. Its  pictures, its accounts and its descriptions will lire forever,until tho Rocky  mountains roll into the sea.    It  was  the Germans were thwarted in efforts  to secure ports which, if they had  succeeded in securing, would have  turned the whole current of tho war.  "Therafore we owe a debt of gratitude for the part you took in that  operation. It was not merely its effect  on the country,- it was the effect on  Europe. It was exactly as if a sturdy  young nation for the first time had  leapt' into world dominion.  "Since then Canada has played a  great part in the war. That game first  division was followed b}'a second, the  second by a third and the third by a  fourth division. I do not mind telling  you we were full of anxiety. We knew  perfectly well how. the German legions  were equipped and preparing, but I  will tell you this, I only just left the  commander in chief of the British  forces a short time ago. He was telling me of the gigantic preparations  going on behind the lines.   (Cheers.)  "That is part of your national pride.  It is part of ours You help not only  in the fighting line, but in the most  gigantic production of the war.  '"I was amazed to hear today a remarkable statement made by the minister of munitions, if I may give away  one secret. He gave an account of  munition production in Canada. Premier Borden was there. He told us  Canadu, since the   beginning   of    the  Mills Require But a Few  Hundred Dollars Working Capital  war, had manufactured���������how many  shells do you imagine1?

As-an army corre  spondent of the Philadelphia Public  Ledger puts it, the candidate who  passes the required course of aerial  gymnastics must either be all nerve  or possess no nerves at all.  At   this   school, he   says, you will  see an aeroplane,   thousands   of   feet  aloft, suddenly fling its nose   up   aud  begin   to   climb ^vertically, ps if the  pilot intended to loop the loop.    Suddenly it pauses, and remains for   perhaps a full  minute poised perpendicu  larly on its tail.  Then, with  the   engine switched off, it   falls   helplessly,  tail first, spinning giddily ronud   and  round    in   a  way that resembles the  helpless flutter of a falling leaf. Then  suddenly the engine roars  again,   the  twisting, fluttering,   dead   thing   be  conies instinct with life,  rights   itself  majestically    on     flashing     pinions,  swoops   down in  swift and headlong  course, mounts the wind and   soars up  and up, as light and graceful  as   any  bird.  Other nerve shattering things they  do, these soaring young demigods of  the air���������feats that seem uothing short  of miraculous to the earth-bouud ones  who stand gazing upward in awe.  Canada has been called the granary  of the empire, but no one seem to  have thought of giving her the appellation, "the cellar of the empire." And  yet the potato cellar may be made a  very real counterpart of the granary.  Owing to the great development of the  war garden idea, thousands of people  are growing potatoes who, before the  war, relied entirely on supplies from  the farms. There is thus every reason  to suppose that potatoes will be much  more plentiful this year than evor before.  Why not convert as .large a proportion as possible into potato flour?  Potato flour mills require but a few-  hundred dollars of working capital;  the machinery required is of the simplest and the resulting product is a  wholesome, nourishing food. Potato  flour has been used extensively in  Britain, especially during the paat  year. A mill in the state, of Washington produces 25 to 30 barrels a da}  and sold its product during the month  of April for.$21 a barrel. Certain  starch companies in Canada are also  making it, but the business is capable  of very considerable expansion. According to Mr. Meeker, an' American  potato ilour manufacturer of long experience, a ton of potatoes will produce 500 pounds of flour. The process he describes is. a simple one.  "First,  the   potatoes   are    washed  clean and then sliced with the peelings  on   and   dropped   immediately   into  water to    rinse   them and to prevent  discoloration.       Then,     as   soon   as  practicable,  they are either parboiled  or steamed for eight or   ten  minutes,  when   the   starch will be cooked and  the  slices    will    become  transparent.  The cooked slices are then transferred  to a drier and, for the first few hours,  are subjected to a current of   hot  air  not   hotter   than    120 deg. F., after  which the temporature    is   gradually  increased to 170 deg., but no   hotter.  The drying process is continued   until  the slices are brittle, though It is immaterial   if a few here and there are  not thoroughly dried.     They are then  taken   from    the   kiln  and placed in  piles in a room   where    they   can  be  well stirred at intervals for   three   or  four   days, after which they   may   be  ground into flour.  "A revolving washer���������a long box  partially submerged in water aud capable of washing a ton of potatoes an  hour���������can be built cheaply. An ordinary root cutter costing about 830  will answer for slicing the potatoes,  but it is probable that a more desirable machine might be found on the  market, The average mill will co-it  from 8150 to $225 and up, but at  present can not be obtained   on   short  Nearly all tht; Fall wheat in  valley has been harvested during tbe  present week.

A large number of  millers are ready with these different flours,  and as soon as the public demand calls for  them they will be distributed throughout the  trade, and are now. procurable by dealers.

At last accounts the French and American troops had the Hun on the run in the direction of the Rhine. There is not likely to  be another German drive on the western  front. Hereafter the allies will do the driving.  1  ^  These are times when every ounce of efficiency we are capable  of producing should be mobilized for the purpose of accomplishing the most in tbe least possible time.

We will be pleased to show you the advantages of these Lenses.  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B. G.  J  A London critic gives as one  of the chief  causes  of the failure  of the  fifth drive the  great improvement in the  allies'   intelligence  work since the previous enemy effort.   This is  due largely to the Steadily growing  aerial superiority, rendering even  partial  suprise impossible.    Even  if the  offensive   had    been  merely checked instead  of definitely held, it  would still have been considered a defeat, because   despite the most  lengthy   and   most  elaborate  preparations  none of  their objectives were achieved by   the  Germans.    It  is  now realized this was intended for the great  est offensive yet launched.  A few months ago there was  an agitation  among the ranchers of this valley  for the establishment  of a  potato flour   mill  at this  point, and resolutions   were  adopted  asking  the Canada food  board to encourage, or assist, such   an   industry.    This week we print  an article on  this  subject. ' The  article  was  prepared by the  Canada Conservation  Commission, and the figures given in it may therefore be relied on as being reasonably accurate.  It will be noticed that the capital required to  establish a'potato flour mill is not very high;  in fact, we believe almost any rancher in the  valley could finance such an industry.   But if  it would be too much of a financial strain  for  one man, two or three men could  cooperate  in the undertaking. If there is a partial failure  of the wheat crop this year, we believe that a  potato  flour  mill would be a paying investment from the start, because the potato crop  promises to be unusually large this year.  The  cannery  building   would   make  a   splendid  housing for the mill, and all that would be required to start the industry would   be  a few  hundred dollars for machinerv.  eral circulation throughout the trade.    In the  case of corn meal, the price has advanced  for  corn in Chicago on account of market  conditions.  ' Canadian pullers were depending -on  American corn and advanced the'price of corn  meal accordingly on all new contracts.    It is  not expected that this market  condition   will  continue, however, as there has   been  plenty  of corn  in   the United States since last harvest, "although difficulty of distribution  arose  through lack of sufficient transportation facilities and similar causes.    With*the 1918 crop  in ���������"prospect, it is expected that there willbe a  still more plentiful supply for the coming season.    It may be necessary to experiment with  these substitute��������� flours a few times before succeeding  in   producing a satisfactory loaf, and  opportunity should   be   taken to study, the effect of   these ������������������substitutes and   the  different  methods of mixing, handling, fermenting  and  "proofing" of  the  doughs.    As  most of the  wheat flour substitutes accelerate the fermentation, it will be better not to work the dough  as long as usual. About four hours for fermentation will be sufficient in a room of moderate  temperature, divided  as.follows:   Two hours  45 minutes for the first punch, 45 minutes for  the second punch; 30 minutes is  allowed before  the dough is  finally taken out, kneaded  and  cut  into  loaves.   After  being, set in the  pan,   45   minutes  is  enough  for  "proofing,"  when it is ready for the oven.  When corn meal, oat meal or other meal is  used the moisture-retaining qualities of the  loaf may be improved by scalding these in-  gredieuts at a temperature of 150 deg. F. and  allowing two hours for cooling. Most of the  wheat flour substitutes retain the moisture'in  the loaf longer than will the wheat flour and  yield an increased amount of bread on account  of their higher absorption of water, thus reducing the amount of veast and shortening  necessary. The following are a few of the recipes recommended to bakers. They will be  useful also in private households when substitutes are to be mixed with wheat'flour for  bread:  Corn .Flour Bread���������c2!j pounds standard  flour, j? pound corn flour, 1 tablespoon brown  Canada's now wheat crop will not roach the|sliy{U'> - tablespoons salt, J- oz, yeast, 1 table-  consuming public as flour for three months at|sPoon ^ :j cups of water.

COLUMBIA  J*JS COMPANY.,  Molly  Gibson  Mine  Has  Lar<������e Ore Bodies and  Good Prospects  Development work is being carried  out at the Molly Gibson mine in  Burnt Basin with the object of tapping the ore body, from below and fa  cilitating shipments. A force of men  under A. L Houston, the. well known  mining man, who has been engaged in  the industry in Rossland and the  Lardeau and other districts of tlie  province for twenty-four years, is now  driving a tunuel about 160 feet below  the upper workings ' Ore which has  b e 1 shipped from the property was  taken out through a shaft and operations were consequently expensive. '  The new tunnel will get in below this  ore body and enable the rock to be  stoped down and taken out by gravity, thus reducing considerably the  cost of operation, says the Nelson  News. The new workings will tap the  ore body, it is estimated, at a depth  of about 90 feet below the collar of  the shaft.  It is expected   that  an   additional  '70 feet will have to be driven fco corn  j plete the tunnel, upon which   work is  ' now being carried out.   From the end  I of the tunnel an upraise   will   be run  to the bottom of the shaft  1     Two shifts are being worked on the  tunnel in order to   push  forward   the  work as speedily as possible..  The management of tho Molly Gib  son has been also carrying out some  surface work, a new cookhouse to  give a cookhouse separate from the  bunRhou.se' having just been completed.  Reports which have been made  upon the Molly Gibson by geologists  call attention to the easy accessibility  of the property, both by rail and  wagon road, aud the close proximity  to smelter facilities, together with the  indicated tonnage of high grade gold  ores which can be mined at a very low  cost. Those who are interested in the  property believe that it is destined to  become one of the big gold-producing,  mines of British Columbia within a  very short time.    .  There are two well defined veins on  Ihe Molly Gibson. On the east vein  there are several shallow pits and  surface trenches which show the con  tinuity of the vein for about 1500 feet.  On the second or main vein the de  velopment consists of a shaft, a tunnel'arid a-number of open cuts and  trenches which prove the continuity  of ihe vein for a distance of 3000 feet  along the strike The vein at the bottom of the shaft has been proved to  be about ten feet wide and to average  at least $14 in gold aud two ounces  in silver. Ore has been shipped to the  Trail and Granby smelters in order  to establish these values.  A shipment1 of ore to the Trail  smelter yielded $22,76 per ton in gold  and silver.  A 50 pound sample from the upper-  tunnel was shipped to the Granby  smelter and yielded in copper 94 cents,  silver 80 cents, and gold $21 60. mak  ing total values of $23.-3.4 per ton.  A 50-pound sample from the shaft  was shipped to the Granby smelter  and yielded in copper 90 cents, silver  30 cents and gold $17.60, making a  total of $18.84.  Twenty-six assays made by the Con  solidated Mining& Smelting Company  of Canada give an average value of  $22.80 per ton. These samples were  taken by mining engineers and mina  operators and came from all over the  property to ascertain the average  value of the ore. "?  Thirty samples taken from differ  ent places on the property and assayed by E. W. Widdowson, proviucial  assayer of Nelson, shows an average  value of $16.35 per ton.  The Molly   Gibson   is   located   32  miles from Granby smelter, 56  miles  from Trail, and 55 miles   from Greeu  (Continued on Page 4-)  SYNOPSIS   OF  No matter for what reason you  choose your automobile this year,  you will make your selection of  ==.DUNLOP  TIRES =  "Traction," "Special," or "Plain,"  for one reason���������the testimony on  every hand that they meet every  Wish  in  the   motorist's   mind���������  -���������������������������������������������  ���������  '      '���������"    ' ���������' i ���������mm    ii m i .in. .in ������������������  i  ������������������|i|>lni,iii npin  Economy,   Efficiency,   Mileage,  DunlopTire <&, Rubber  Goods  Co., Limited  Head Office and!
