Davy.*-, formerly of the Silver  King mine, to take over the old sampling works at Kaslo and convert them  into a plant for handling the ores in  the district. The new industry will  operate under the title of the Kootenai  Ore Treatment company and will  enter the market for the 'purchase of  lead arid zinc ore of too low a grade to  permit of shipping to a distance for  treatment. The process to be employed is the same that is now being used  ;it the Hewitt mine and has been in  service for the last three years.���������Pioneer.

Holland as President of the State  College of Washington, Pullman, by  having conferred on him the degree  of Master of Science in engineering 'in  recognition of his service to the mining industr y of the Great West.'" Mr.  Ross was for some time general manager, for the estate of the late Marcus  Daly, of the Nickel Plate group of gold  mines and the 40-stanip mill and cyanide plant, in Camp Hedley, Similkameen, B. C.  Rich showings of copper, increasing  in richness with each .core taken from  the diamond drill, is the latest report  from the sulphide ore fields at Plin-  Flon. . On Sunday morning last the  two drill were down -400 and 500 feet-  respectively, and the ;ore richness at  this depth created suppressed excitement among the miner-sin the district.  At the commencement of the drilling  the ore was light in color, hut as the  drill progressed downward the stuff  grew darker in shade and richer in  copper-, where at 400 Veet it is said to  be a veritable deposit bf strong values.  The two drills were shifted about ten  days ago ton. point'between 200 and  500 yards from nhe initiatery holes,  and it was in the new-������r holes that the  rich copper showing .vas picked up.  A team load of cores and a team load  of bagged samples of' sulphides were  landed in The Pas on" Tuesday night  for shipment, to New York, for examination by expert ' assayists and  chemists. Jack Hanimell has been  apprised of the -success of the drilling  and the good ore showings encountered.

EDMOND, Propi  The diamond drill outfit for Tono-  pah mines at Schist lake got in last  Saturday, and was loaded 'up by Geo.  Cann. The teams got away on Tuesday morning for the scene of drilling,  which is announced to take place on  the Mandy claim secured from Fred.  Jackson. This claim projects into  Schist lake, oh a neck of ' land about  three miles from , the sulphide mines  lit Flini \Flon.! There 'appears] to be a  strong copper deposit on the claim, and  repeated "assays show from 14 to 23 per  cent, copper, with gold and silver  mixed. The .average''assay has not  been made public hy the Tonopah peo-  pie. "^ The 'drilling ' will 'be done by  Smith & Durkee, the well known Ontario drillers, who are also drilling the  Flin Finn properties. AVith this drill  the total number of drills working is  brought up to four.���������Pas Herald. ���������  The results of the drilling by two  diamond drills'on .'the' sulphide ore  claims at Flin-Flon are reported to be  highly satisfactory, and that 100 feet  of ore was encountered. The drills  are set at a 45-degree angle, and the  last report brought in stated the drills  had gone down 280 feet. The drilling  was done near the walls of the vein,  300 feet apart, and the foot walls were  successfully nicked , up. A feeling of  great confidence runs through the little camp of mining- men at Flin-Flon,  and everyone, feels that the permanency of the ore body is well ! assured.  The/drilling will continue, and as many  holes as possible   will   be   put   down.  ^���������as-a-a-rsa -8-3 -asis-a***** **?%*.

Northern surveyors who were working at Brushy Bottom moved their camp up the'r-iver to  a point in the vicinity of the old sawmill.  The Similkameen river and Twenty-  Mile creek have been rising during the  i  pa������t week. This is one of the reasons  given by local fishermen to excuse the  sinallness of the'catch.  Harry Tweddle's injury at the Central Hotel fire at Keremeos,'developed  into a case of blood' poisoning. Dr.  McEwen was summoned' by 'phone  and went down to attend to him. The  trouble was checked and he is now on  a'fair way to recovery.  *   *  Bobby Stevenson came down on  Sunday and has gone upon the mountain to look after some important  ruining interests which he holds W the  northeast of Riordan mountain. Bob'-  by, the oldest survivor of all the old-  timers, has wintered well and is able  to outlast many of trie Chechukhos.  The earlier reports from San Francisco spoke of a tidal wave attended  with terrible loss of life, and as all telegraphic communication outof the city  was cut off those who had friends living there were left in terrible suspense.  Mi's. Burnt.'- people were living in Sun  Francisco, and it w'as not until Saturday that'the assurance came to hand  that they were all safe at Oakland.  Fears are entertained for the safety  _f:Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Forbes,'who  were believed to have been in San  Franeisce on their way home at the  time of the disaster. A picture 'post  card was received from them last mail  dated San Francisco, April 27th, announcing their arrival there, and the  disaster befell the city shortly after 5  o'clock next morning. It is to be  hoped that Mrs. Forbes' friends at  Green Mountain may have heard-from  thetri since.  T. Bradshaw was in town Thursday.

Dear Sirs,  Tt gives   me   great .pleasure in   for-  *".  warding to you today a copy of the  Bramshott Weekly Chronicle just received from England, referring particularly to the. '47th Battalion and the  receipt of the shipments of apples that  went forward from B. C. last Fall.  I have received letters' from every  .Regiment from B. C. that was in England and France at that time, and each  and every one of the Colonels speaks  in a most -appreciative manner of the  kindness and thought-fulness of the  donors.  If it is possible I would like your  local newspaper to print this article in  full so that the contributors fiom the  Okanagan Valley will realize how  much their kind gift was appeciated.  Yours truly,  Sgd. J. R. Seymour.  Vice-Chairman.  Extracts from The  Weekly Chronicle of the47th Battalion at Br-anishott,  England; Jan. 15, 1916.  Vancouver ttnd.B.

"~ '*" " "*"-' - -- - -  Great was the delight of the boys of  the 47th when there arrived last Wednesday several hundreds of^boxes of  apples from Vancouver and B. C,  Each hut received its quota, and  everyone had as many apples as he  desired.  The kindness and thoughtfillness of  our friends at home was much appreciated.  It was through the good offices of  the Canadian Red Cross Society that  the consignment arrived, and in an interesting letter to Colonel' Winsby,  Mr. J.'M. Seymour' tells how the apples came to be sent. The letter runs:  ���������At an entertainment at the Pantag-  es Theater some few weeks ' ago a'lec-  lure was given entitled, "The Silent  Navy and its work-",--and in a letter  written by a naval officers in -His Ma:  jesty's : Navya paragraph -was -read  which* said how grateful the boys  would'lie for some of those'juicy BJ C.  apple's, arid how much our boys would  enjoy "them; This brought' forth an  immediate response by*one gentleman  in the audience offering 50 boxes; I  was approached,' asking if' the Red  Cross Society would make an appeal  for our boys. After consultation with  some of our Executive, I was detailed  to look after this appeali'with the result that I managed to secure four  carloads, or 2,115boxes."'' ���������'   ' "  This was a magnificent >.New Year's  gift, and we at a loss to know when  the generosity of our friends at home  will cease. We almost feel'embarrassed at the quantities of gifts that come  from time to time from those we have  left behind. ���������  The Canadian Red Cross has done  such a tremendous lot for her- soldiers  at the front. The greater Vancouver-  organization closed the . year- with a  report, of 1,083 cases of goods sent to  Toronto and ��������� London1- (England),  amounting- in weight to no less than  80,000 lbs., and valued at 145,000 dollars.  This was all material made up ready  for our wounded, sick -and diseased  soldieis in tin- Red Cr-o.-s hospitals,'be-  thirty thousand dollar.- cash sent to  London for- medical and surgical supplies that could lie pin chased in London. Then outside this am the countless n umbers of socks that have, been  knitted for the boys at lhe Front, and  the wonderful woik done by the  Daughters of the Empire, to say nothing of 3o,S54 dollars raised in one day  on the mainland of B. C. for the B. C.  Base Hospital, now known as No. 5  General Hospital, C. E. F., recently  sent to Malta.  Yet in addition to all (his. "The  Prisoners of War Fund", working  through the Canadian Red Cross Society, have cabled no less than 15,000  dollais to London, for the purpose of  sending gifts to the prisoners in Germany.  We do indeed thank the generous  donois of those apples to us; the gift  was more than appreciated, for many  had not even seen an aj-ple, leave  alone tasted   oue, since we   left home.  We are glad chat we are able,  thr ough the courtesy of Mr. J. R. Seymour, to publish a list of the names of  the contributors, and we know that  all other units which received their  portion of the gift will unite with us  in giving thanks to one and all.

MARTIN BURRELL, Minister of Agriculture. ...  THE  FOLLOWING    STATEMENTS    ARE    BASED    ON     REPORTS    CONTAINED    IN  "THE  AGRICULTURAL  WAR  BOOK,.- 1916,"   PUBLISHED   BY  THE  DEPARTMENT  OF AGRICULTURE,   OTTAWA,   ONT.  LIVE STOCK���������The herds r.nd flocks of Europe  have been greatly reduced. When the war is over  there will be a great demand for breeding stock.  Canadian farmers should keep this in mind.  EVBEATS���������In 1015 Great Britain imported 664.50S  tons of beef, mutton and lamb, of which 364,245  tons came from without the Empire. Out of  430,420 tons of beef only 104,907 tons came from  within the Empire.  The demands of the Allies for frozen beef,  canned beef, bacon and hams will increase rather  than diminish. Orders are coming to Canada.  The decreasing tonnage space available will give  Canada an advantage if we have the supplies.  DAS RYi N&-���������Home consumption pf milk, butter  and cheese has increased of late years. The war  demands for cheese have been unlimited. The  Canadian cheese exports from Montreal in 1915  were nearly $(!,500,000 over 1914. Prices at  Montreal���������Cheese : January 1915, 1534 to 17  cents ; January 1916, 18}^ to 1SJ_ cents.  Butter : January 1915, 24 to 2SJ:i cents;  January  1916, 32 to 33 cents.  EGGS���������Canada produced $30,000,000 worth of  eggs in 1915 and helped out Great Britain in the  shortage. Shippers as well as producers have a  duty and an opportunity in holding a place in  that market.  WRITE TO THE DOMINION   DEPARTMENT   OF  AGRICULTURE  AND  TO  YOUR  PROVINCIAL DEPARTMENT FOR BULLETINS ON THESE SUBJECTS  Tens of thousands of Canada's food producers have enlisted and gone to the front. It is only fair to them  that their home work shall be kept up as far as possible. The Empire needs all the food that wc can produce  in 1916. *"  PRODUCE MORE AND SAVE MORE  MAKE LABOUR EFFICIENT  SAVE MATERIALS FROM WASTE  SPEND MONEY WISELY  THE   GOVERNMENT   OF   CANADA 4  THE  DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE THE DEPARTMENT  OF FINANCE  There once was a Teddy Bear whose  name was Bobby. Hobby was owned  by a man named Saxel Andberg, a  man who loved the birds and the  beasts and the flnwers. He bought  Bobby and then paid the government  for the privilege of Keeping him as a  pet. Bobby was a privileged member  ol'the family and when OldBoieas  blew hard out of the north Bobby  found a welcome and a cosy pl-ice al,  the foot of his master's bed. There,  were children of the white man in that  land who had no better care and tieat-  inent than Bobby.  Bobby was attached to a chain and  the boys and men of Nickel Plate Land  came .-nid played with Bobby and fed  him nuts and sweetmeats.  But Bobby grew as the month rolled oh and one dav while his master-  was in town to buy a stronger chain  to hold the romping Bobby, he managed to get loose and began to roam  about seeking adventures of his own.  At once Bobby went to the tent  where he had so often found warmth  and a kind friend. Near the tent he  spied some rabbits, brothers in captivity, but. they were too small to play  with Bobby, so he wandered over to a  near-by chicken ' house belonging to a  man named M. Essenger, he liked to  see the antics of these birds and hear  them talk their strange cheeping language. His visit here was ruthlessly  disturbed by a bear hound who ru.-h-  ed at Bobby and barked'so hard that  he was frightened and sought safety  in flight up a near-by tree.  Soon he became tired of the. tree life,  and cajne down. He ��������� wandered over  to where a little, dog lived and began  lo play with him. The terrier told  him that his master's name was Sorn  Tinart. They played together for  some time and several of the inhabitants of that land watched their antics.  But Mrs. Sorn Trnart did not like Bobby,and threw some very hot water on  his back which burned his hide and  hurt very much so the little fellow  cried and again ran up a tree. Here  his little terrier friend watched below  and scampered about, telling him to  come down and play again.  Soon Bobby foigot his hurt and his  troubles and ca.me down, he went  over to the house of a man named  South Bynorth where there lived a  little hoy about twelve years old and  here Bobby had a great time playing  with the little, boy and wrestling. The  little boy ��������� seemed to enjoy the fun  every bit as much as Bobby.  The boy's mother called him away  so Bobby wandered into the woods  and there he came to the house of a  man mimed Bills. Mrs. Bills came  out find called Bobby and gave him  some pie and Bobby played about the  house.    .  But alas for Bobby, there came  along a mighty hunter, with a very  big gun that shoots far and hurts very  .much, Mr. Soni Tinart considered himself a big chief in the land and a great  hunter and Mr. Bills also came with a  big gun and when little Bobbv was in  a tunnel where he could not well get  out they came to shoot him.  Bobby's master came up just then  with the new chain to catch Bobby  and take him home to dinner. He  asked the hunters, the mighty men of  valor what they were doing and when  told they were going to kill his little  pet he was very sorry, "Nay" said he,  "But let me I beseech you kill him  myself, if he has to be killed." But to  this the mighty hunters would not  consent, then he tried to borrow Som  Traart's big gun to shoot Bobby with  but could not. Then Mr. M. Essenger  came and said he would catch the little Teddy Bear with a rope and tie  him up so he could not eat up the  mighty men of valor or harm them,  but they said "Nay, we will shoot the  bad bold bear, with our big guns." So  they shot the little  bear, not once nor  twire but as if they were at one of the  great battles of the world, in France,  they shot, and the ammunition train  had tii come up to bring more ammunition to reload'the magazine.  Poor little Bobby cried hard and his  cry was heard over in the village and  a woman   heard it and was  very sick.  Soon little Bobby was dead and his  hide was so badly punctured that it  was no good and his kind master could  not even "nave the hide of his pet to  remember him by. And the. men of  the village are very sorry because  their pet is gone.  . C. Dingwall, a Vancouver travelling  man was selling his wares to Hedley  merchants Thursday.  Joe Armstrong came to town Tuesday evening with an old-time prairie  schooner in tow, Joe is headed for- his  copper claims up at Aspen Grove,  which is considerable more than a sabbath Day's journey from Summit  House. Joe was the original locater  of this claim in 1S99 and then took out  some outcrop samples of native copper  which have been a srrrprise to every  miner or prospector who has seen  them. He is taking along Norman  Dewar and M. Hughes and expects W.  Bryant to accept the job of culinary  artists in the course of a few days.
