 ���������7 J  Kettle Valley Orchardist  18TII YEAR���������No   5  GRAND FORKS   B.C., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1918  f:  $1.00 PER YEAR  GRAHBY MIS  AT PHOF  The Company Will Work  Them as Lou^ as It Is  Possible to Make Both  Ends Meet  due to the inroads of the draft on the  man power of the country for war  duty in foreign lands, and the cer-  ta;nty of still further calls for fighting  men before the world can be made  safe fo.i democracy, Mr. Dewey Mann  and Miss Lee Allen, both parties residing in the Turner community, near  here, where they have many warm  friends who wish them a long and  happy life.  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company bas  produced 12,814,946 tons of ore  from its Phoenix mines since the  beginning of production . twenty  years ago, according to an official  report of the company. From this  ore its smelter at Grand Forks produced 636,291 ounces of gold, 4,330,-  345 ounces of silver and 271,079.000  pounds of copper, having an approximate value of $55,550,000 . The capacity of the smelter was increased  until it reached 4500 tons daily.then  becoming the largest copper smelter  in the British empire, a distinction  it retains.  In the mining and treating of the  Phoenix ores the company has paid  525,000,000 in wages and   $20,000,  000 for supplies and freight,  lpaving  .a profit.of 3 per cent for   its   stock  holders.  .  There remains in the Phoenix  mines 3,274,996 tons of ore, averaging 85 per cent coppfr and-75  c-nts  Not  Even  Substitutes to  Be Had  Falling into the manner of the late  Edward Lear, Punch relates this sad  case of food shortage in a rural English community:  A certain young woman of Hoddesdon  Asked for lunch, and they gave her a  modesi un.  '���������We've no butter or bread  Or potatoes," they said,  "And all the  fish (even   the  cod)   is  done."  instances they have been stored in  cellars before being properly dried.  Potatoes showing any indication of  rot should not be stored with sound  ones. Thi.-j is especially true if there  are abnormal conditions of.moisture,  as such conditions will cause a  greater activity of the fungus and,  Short   Session   at   Which consequently, quicker rotting of the  potatoes. -  Potatoes  Only Routine Business  Was Transacted  Harbor Was Packed  With  Warships When One  Takes Fire  London,   Nov.   2S ���������The    latest  batch of interesting   war time   hap-  un in gold and silver.   The cost  of | pening?, now released   for   publica-  producing and. marketing copper  from the Phoenix-Grand Forks  properties was 22������ cents a pound  wbenthe United States government  price was fixed at 23^- cents, leaving  a margin of a cent a pound. An increase of 2������ cents in the price, now  26 cents, has been more than absorbed by the increased railway  freight rates on ore and matte, and  for power and laborcosts. The company, it is stated, will operate the  mines and smelter so long as it is  possible to make both ends meet.  Quite Another Matter  "How long has that clerk worked  for you1?" asked the traveling man, as  lie watched the man do up a pound of  butter  "About four hours, I should say,"  replied -he man who keeps the  store.  "I thought he had been here longer  than that," said the   traveling   man.  "He has," said the storekeeper.  He has been here for four months."  tion, contains a story of how Dover  narrowly   missed    being  blown   out  jusl prior to the last   Belginn   offen  sive.  The harbor was   packed    with  war  vessels   of   all descriptions, in  eluding four^monitors about to start  out for the Belgian coast to cooper  ate with the land offensive   Suddenly an explosion shook the town, and  soon   is   was   discovered   that  the  monitor Glatten was furiously ablaze  in the harbor. It was said that  Admiral  Keyes   boarded   the Glatten,  and realizing  the  catastrophe   that  would result if the Glatten's   maga  zine exploded,ordered air raid sirens  to be   blown   to clear   the streets.  Orders were also given   to  sink the  GJatten. The destroyer   Broke  succeeded   in   hittiDg   her   with three  torpedoes in that part of the Glatten  which was away from her magazine,  thus sinking her and saving  Dover.  Mayor Acres and Aid, Harkness,  McCa.be and Schnitter. were pres  ent at the regular meeting of  the city council on Monday evening. ���������;.'.,..  A communication from the Grand  Forks hospital stated that Misses  Sewell, Harrigan and Etter, of the  public school teaching staff, who  had acted as volunteer nurses at the  hospital, had contracted influenza  after a short service, and the city  was asked to reimburse the hospital  for their care. Referred to the board  of health, with instructions to investigate and to report.  A letter from Cleraence Feek  asked the council to remove a fence  from a property near her place on  Second, street. Referred to the board  of works.  The mayor reported that on the  death of Mayor McQuarrie, of Nelson, he had sent a telegram of condolence to Mrs. McQuarrie. On motion of Ala. Schnitter and Harkness, -the telegram wag sanctioned  a^d the council expresned regret at  the death of Nelson's chief execu  tive.  The city clerk was instructed to  accompany the city engineer in a  tour of the city to check up the  water shut off.  should be stored in as  dry and cool a place as possible  without freezing. The drier they can  be kept the less rot will develop.

News of the City  The news of the death of  Pte.  T.  A. Chew (Pell) came   as   a   terrible  shock to his parents, who  reside  in  Grand.Forks.    The young man was  born in Gravenbvirsf, Out., May  29,  1890.   He enlisted in October, 1917,  and was called to report for   st-rvice  January IS, 1918.    He   spent some  months at   Victoria,   leavujg   there I date,  about   May   24   on the Empress of  for h  Asia and going by the   way   of    the  Panama canal and acting   as   police  guard   to Chinamnn.

Fruit packing operations closed  for the season on Saturday at the  warehouse of the ��������� Grand Forks  Growers' Cooperation association,  but there are still small lots held by  individual growers. The entire apple  crop has been loaded out and shipped to prairie points.'.. The association shipped thirty-four cars of apples, which includes the output of  the Grand Forks Orchard company.  In addition to the output of the association, twenty carB of applee,  prunes and plums were shipped by  the Doukhobor community. Individual growers shipping their own  produce are. W. J.S. Traill, three  cars; A. D. Morrison, one car: W.  Hanson, one car; Sunnyside Fruit  Farm, five cars of prunes, and R.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER .29, 1918  Writing on "Invisible Wounds/' Gapt.   Arthur H. Samuels, S.C., U.S.A., says that the  greater percentage of soldiers passing through  reconstruction centers are  suffering  from internal rather than outward  surgical  injuries,  men  who  are suffering from shell shock, for  instance. They look fit. "It will  be difficult,"  he says, "in many instances, for  the  business  man eager to  open   his door to the returned  fighter to understand why men who look hale  and hearty enough will be unable to  go into  certain jobs  involving' heavy  indoor   work.  They   must   not  be  passed by-because their  sacrifices are not obvious." No small  part  of  the  intuition   that  knows  to  sympatize   by  silence and unobtrusive helpfulness and   that  is so absolutely necessary in the  great  work  of helping these men to "find themselves" rests  with the women of every community:'   If the  returned man becomes discouraged  and   outclassed after leaving the reconstruction centers  the fault will be found to rest almost invariably with the women who have  symathized  in  unwise rather than helpful ways.    Open commiseration is often nothing less  than  refined  cruelty and is never  the  best   sort   of  help.  Thus there is added another phase to women's  war work,  study of the best ways of helping  unobtrusively.

Night work claims about  one-fourth of the toilers. Fven Vienna sees  the crime that is being committed against its  own flesh and blood and is considering legislation that will prohibit child labor before the  age of twelve except on farms and in the  household. One who lives in civilized lands  where human beings are not regarded as beasts  of burden can see great hardships in even the  new ruling.  /f=  zz\  How many persons know that, if the Brit-  ishcrown had descended by strict hereditary  right instead of by authority of parliament,  Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria, who has  comma aded a German army in the field  throughout the greater part of the war, would  be king instead of George V? Through his  mother.who was a princess of Austria-Modena,  he is the ranking descendant of the Stuart  kings, but his ancestors were ruled out of conrt  by parliament some two centuriesago,because  they, like James II, whom parliament deposed, were Roman Catholics. There is said  to exist today a curious society call the Order  of-the White Rose, the members of which  recognize the Bavarian prince as the true  King of England, the real vessel of the divine  right to rule!  "Look you now! Consider that poor Jivan  Shah! No legs  he has���������no  ueck���������one arm.  Does he ask for money? All day long he works  ���������the most honored man  on   the  compound.

It   is  what  is   being  said,   with   variations,  throughout India  wherever maimed   Indian  soldiers who have been trained at reconstruc-  tion centers begin earning their living.   Probably in no part of the world has war wrought  more   wonderful   changes   than  in    India-  changes destined, literally,'to affect .the' whole  world.

Dies Irae  SYNOPSIS  OF  TO THE GERMAN KAISER  Every man knows how mean his acquaintances are, but he is never absolutely sure  about himself.  Just what war means to Austrian children  is disclosed in a report published 'in the Ar-  beifcer Zeitung of Vienna. Of children of school  age more than one-third are engaged in some  kind of work; in some districts all such children are at work. Out of every 100 children  from 6 to 8 years of age 18 are at work, from  9 to 10 years 35 are at work; between 11 and  12 years, 50; between 13 and 14, 52. Saddest  of all is the fact that two-fifths of these children have been workingfrom the time they  were five or six years of age. Another startling fact is that 95 out of every 100 children  at work were employed steadily during school  year as well as during holiday periods. Fifty-  two weeks each year marks the employment1  Amazing Monarch! who at various times,  Posing as Europe's self appointed savior,  Ailbrded copy for your ribald rhymes  By your behavior.

Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  .five years and .make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including- clearing  .and, cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has madepropor-  , tlonate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be. issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of ?300 .per annum and records same each year. Failure to make .improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 6 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least .2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record . another pre-emption, ,Jf he  re-  ?iulres land in conjunction with his  arm. without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  , .Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding .20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling.residential and improvement conditions.

The lifting of the restrictions upon  the exportation of apples to the old  country will mean a greatly increased  market for the productioh of this valley. It will mean also new markets for  the American fruit, which may therefore be expected to be less plentiful  on Canadian markets. The more  American fruit sold elsewhere the  more room for our fruit at home.  Fruit men believe that we will enjoy comparatively high fruit prices  for the next two or thieefyears at  least. If this prediction holds good,  there is a bright future ahead of the  man who owns a ten acre fruit orchard  in this valley, providing that he has  the right varieties and takes proper  care of his trees.  One of the moat extraordinary pa  pers ever issued is the Wipers (Ypres)  Times. Patrick MacGill, author of  The Great' Push and other popular  books, and now a soldier in France,  describes its unusual beginning:  In the early part of 1916 a major  and a sergeant of the British army  discovered an old printing house in  the"city of Ypres.. Part of the house  wasblown into the street; the remainder was lying on the printing press,  and the type was scattered here and  there The sergeant, who had been a  printer in private life, declared that  he could get the press to work if the  offieer would give him permission and  find help. Both were obtained. The  soldier dug the type out of the mud  and washed it, and somehow they  found paper and ink. British officers  became journalists, printers' devils  and proofreaders. Soldiers in khaki  forgot hate of the Hun for the time  being and set themselves to work to  produce the Wipers Times.

Messages from every nook and   cor  ner of France, Belgium, Italy and the  British   lies   are   pouring  into   the  Wnite House urging the president to  include these points in   his  itinerary.  One   from   Lord   Northcliffe, publisher of the London   Times, declared  he "must" make the journey and that  his   coming   will   be   marked by the  greatest ovation ever accorded a  citi~  zen or statesman.  According to the plan now, President Wilson will sail for France on  the former German liner George  Washington, about December 3.  He will be accompanied by Mrs.  Wilson, her private secretary, Miss  Edith Ben ham, and his confidential  stenographer, Gilbert Close.    -  In addition to the presidential  party, the ship also will carry French  Ambassador Jusserand and Mme.  Jusserand and members of the American peace delegation. These are expected to include Secretaries Lansing  and Baker and ex-Ambassador Henry  White.  George Creel will accompany the  party.
