C, FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  District Farmers' Institute  to Meet in This City  Next Week  Representatives from the twelve  Farmers' Institutes in the Grand  Forks district will mret in the farmers' room in the court in this city  next Wednesday afternoon at - 3  o'clock for the purpose of electing a  member to represent the district on  the advisory board of the provincial  institute. The Grand Forks institute  will meet a few minutes previous to  this meeting to select its delegate.  British Columbia is divided into  nine districts., Grand Forks being in  District JNo, 9. Each district appoints a member of the advisory  board, and the advisory board transacts the business of the institutes  with the government.  Wednesday evening, in the bid  opera, the local institute will entertain the visiting ' delegates. Cards  and other amusements will be provided. On the following day the  . visitors will be taken for a drive  through the valley.  peditionary forces for the last thirty-  eight months. This unit has had the  verv closest touch with your institu-  i ���������       J  tion, and'we have undying   memor-  ; ies of the late Capt. Oscar Irwin and  Capt.

Bdg.: "Before we return to the  forward area I want to express to  you, and all those associated with  younn your good work, on behalf of  our men, our appreciation of your  efforts. To my mind the healthy  sport and amusement which you  have provided for us go" a long way  towards keeping up that spirit of  cheerful optimism which is such a  valuable asset at this time."  "Y." Work Is  Appreciated  That the Canadian Y.M.C.A. is  playing a big part overseas in the  winning of tbe war, by virtue of its  work among the C.E F., is amply  borne out by the following extracts  of letters written to "Y" secretaries  by officers connected with Canadian  units fighting in France:  Lieut.-Col. Sam Sharpe, commanding 116th (Ontario county)  Canadian infantry battalion; "From  my experience of the work of the  Y.M.G. A., both in England and in  France, it can not be overestimated.  I find that the Y.M.C.A. is an ex  cedent organization, of which I can  not speak too highly. Its social and  moral influence is very great, and'  all ranks of the battalion are a 'unit  in expressing-their high appreciation of the work of the Y.M.C.A.  Its facilities for correspondence and.  intercourse and its efforts to amuse  and interest tbe men are known to  all ranks, and I cheerfully give my  testimony to the great work the Y.  M.C.A. is carrying on for the comfort and entertainment of the troops.  A. M. Donaldson, Lieut.-Col., C.  A.M.A., officer commanding No. 3,  Canadian field ambulance: ''The  extremely difficult and trying conditions with which the Y.M;C.A. haB  to contend, the carrying out of the  organization's canteens and institutions right into the forward areas,  and the excellent services rendered  and facilities afforded under these  circumstances are deserving of the !  highest praise, and make the organ  THE WEATHER  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the. past week, as recorded by the government thermometer on E.

"Unless we can not only stop, but  turn the Germans, by that date, the  war must by transferred to our un-  conquered and invincible navy,  which with the allied navies, will  bring the victory America deserves.  It's time somebody spoke strongly  to the American people. I am bold  enough to tell them the reason we  haven't more men in the battlefield  is because when we entered the war  our allies' representatives urged that  for a year we send no more men; If  the lack of Americans abroad is  causing inconvenience, it is not the  fault of congress or of the American  government. I call that to the attention of those from whatever qutr-  ter of the world they come, who are  crying now lor us to hasten."  A public meeting was held in the  Empress theatre at 3:30 o'clock last  Sunday  afternoon,   vfben the city's  handsomely   lithographed diplomas  of honor were present to the soldiers  who  have  done   their'"bit" at the  front and have returned to the city;  and to the relatives of the men who  have fallen on  the  field   of   honor.  Mayor Acres presided, and the   presentation of the diplomas was  made  by  Lieut.   Whittaker.    The   house  was crowded with citizens, much of  the standing room   being  occupied.  After   the    presentation    Lieut.  Whittaker gave a splendid  address,  in which he gave a graphic  account  of the work of the Y.M.C.A.  at; the  front.  He was follow'ed by Rev. Mr.  Eslabrook, of Victoria, who is ideu:  titied   with   Y.MC.A.    work.    He  urged the people at home to do their  duty   to  the  men who are fighting  the battle of liberty at the front.  The following returned soldiers  received diplomas of Lotion  Pie. Edgar Gambler, Canadian  Army,Medical Corps.  Pte. David II. M. Harkness, 54th  battalion.  Pte.

It is now known that a 24 centimeter shell���������about 8������ inches���������is  used. They have then chosen a ISA-  inch cannon, the length of which is  fifty times that of the calibre, in  other words, nearly 66 feet. Iu the  gun they have placed an inner tube  with a calibre of 8-^- inches; thus the  gun has an enormous charge for the  weight of the shell, and has enormous strength given it by its thick  barrel. This would give room for a  charge of 836 pounds of powder,  and the-projectile could receive a  propulsive power of about 40,000  metric tons, giving a muzzle velocity of 6,500 feet per second to the  shell. At a height of 12A- miles atmospheric pressure is as low as 42  millimetrss, and the air resistance  is sunk to about 6 per  cent   of   the  SENSATIONAL FIND  Reported That Chrome Is  Found Running High  in  Value  original resistance. When under  these conditions the projectile is  conceived as being fired to a height  of 25 miles by the method described  above, then it will be plainly seen  that the air resistance will be a  minimum and the shell can continue  to travel in a forward directionuntil  the earth's gravity draws it back  into the atmosphere again.  The idea recalls the  imaginations  of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells.  bat-  bat-  bat-  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  LongRange Gun  Solution Found  That the mystery of the "miracle"    gun which the Germans have   been  Over 300,000 letters are written in ! firing   from   75   miles  distant into  Y.M.C.A. overseas buildings in one  i- j day.  ization one of which  the   Canadian j      .  corps   has   indeed   reason    to   be  proud."

There is an expanding  demand for the ore, which is used  in hardening and toughening steel.  It is among the war materials for the  development of which the United  Slates government has been asked  to appropriate 850,000,090.  The discovery was made by Cameron, Myers, Brinskill, Kidwell and  McCormack, residents of Laurier,  They sought a rare mineral, but did  not recognize it, so staked the deposit on general principles,confident  they had something worth while,  sayB the Laurier report. They covered the mountain with claims,  which are observable from the Laurier copper mine, five miles southwest, which is owned by residents  of Spokane.  An option on the group /vas taken  last winter by a man identified with  the Salts deposit at Oroville, Wash.,  for S5000, it is said, but silence on  the discovery aud the option was,  maintained'until recently, presumably so that an investigation might  first be made. The Oroville man is  said to have given his option, to a  Victoria, B. C, syndicate.  The departing snow is said to have  revealed deposits of the mineral, of  which a large quantity has been  broken in surface mining. The occurrence is in serpentine, as usual.  The extent of the body has not been  determined, but a valuation of S40  to the ton has been placed on the  material broken.  Chrome is usually found in small  deposits, according to an engineer.  Clean ore contains 32 per ' cent iron  oxide and 68 per cent chromic iron.  Its uses include the monufacture of  chrome bricks, used as refractory  in furnaces, electric batteries, calico  printing and pigments, but a greater  part of it will go into steel at this  time, it is believed, owing to the  war needs.

Military operations on the  western front have been comparatively quiet this week.  It is probably the calm before  the storm.  In the big Y.M.C.A. drive  oh the 7th, 8 tli-and 9th inst.  the citizens of Grand Forks  may be depended on to do  their duty.  More than 60,000 cups of  hot tea and coffee are distrib-  ted daily in France by the Y.  M.C.A. free. The estimated  cost for this service for eight  months is $48,000.  ��������� pany in   the  first   quarter   of   this  year   was   SI,250,000  by estimate,  or at the rate of $5,000,000 for   the  year if the same rate is maintained.,  Continuance   of   this   rate is made  possible by additions'to' the  Anyox  plant.   While   the   company   is   re  ceiving no more this year .than .last  for copper, it   is paying    more   for  lebor.    This   increase may be offset  to .some extent when coke begins   to  arrive   from    the   Granby   plant on  Vancouver island, in process of construction.  Of the 3,807,000    pounds  of copper pioduced by the'Granby  in March,   2,977,713   pounds   were  made   at Anyox ��������� and   829.887   at  Grand Forks.  The case against Ralph  E.

This saving  represents the meat from at least  90,000 steers of average dressed  weight, or from more than -290,000  hogs. If every Canadian family can  save this precious one ounce of  edible meat or fat each day from the  garbage pail or reduce their consumption of meat by this amount,  they would save enough to provide  for the full meat ration for at least  100,000 Canadian soldiers.

The tremendous helpfulness of the Y.M.C.A. as an aid to the  "morale," or fighting spirit, of the soldiers is everywhere  praised.

The terrific pressure on our  military front makes it all- -the more imperative that those behind the  line should strain every nerve to defeat the enemy's avowed object of  destroying the British Empire.  "Germany hoped first to starve the Old Country by the submarine  campaign and then to smash her land forces. She has failed to starve  us and she will fail to smash us but we cannot achieve victory without  food. There never waa a time when it was more needed.  "The Canadian farmer and the Canadian farmhand now have the  opportunity to make an effective reply to the enemy's present  onslaughts by bending their undivided energies to the increased  production of those food supplies for which we depend to such vital  extent upon your great Dominion."  (Signed)        "RHONDDA"  London, April 10th  /The Prime Minister of Canada, in  a call to Greater Food Production,  says: "The crisis is grave and urgent  beyond possibility of exaggeration."  Our Allies are depending upon  Canada to produce this year more  cereals���������especially Spring Wheat���������and  more meat���������especially Pork.  The world shortage will inevitably  continue for years after the war���������with  this continent the nearest source of  supply for the 200,000,000 persons in  Europe who will be clamoring for food.  Measures have been taken and plans  have been formulated which, on the  authority of the Director of Agricultural  Labor, will provide help needed for  harvest.  City and town people who cannot  go on the farms are helping to feed  themselves by growing their own vegetables, so that the farmers may grow  wiore food for export.  The food crisis calls for the utmost  effort by all the people of Canada, because, as Lord Rhondda says, Food is  essential to  Victory.
