Since the war began the price of  food in the United Kingdom has increased,-17 per cent., according1 to statistics issued by tlie Board of Trade.  However, this is loss than the increase  in Berlin and Vienna. According to  the figures, food has advanced S3 per  cent, in the price in the German capital and 112 per cent in the Austrian  capital.  Great Britain's personal national expenditure for the current year will  reach a total of ������1,500,0(10.000. according to a statement by Mr. Reginald  McKenna, Chancellor of Fxchequer.  addressing the Association, of chain  hers of Commerce of the United Kingdom. Great Britain, he said, had  maintained her credit unimpaiid  throughout the war.  British women are releasing men for  the fighting ranks in a hundred ways.  In many cases they are undertaking  unaccustomed and strenuous labor.  In a few, they are running the risk of  their lives*. Among the latter is M'ls.-.  Marjorie Lean, who is driving a niotor-  aii.ibulari.ee on the western front. She  belongs to the First-Aid Nursing Yeomanry. Miss Lean is a soldier's daughter, i lei* father is Colonel Lean, late  of the Bengal Cavalry. Not even the  soldiers in the trenches must possess*  more coolness and courage than the  nurse who drives a motor ambulance  near the battle front.  {     MINING NOTES     i  The new million-dollar ������������������li-cli-ulytie  zinc plant at   Trail   is doing   business.  The last pay day at Trail amounted  to $117,000. This was for the month  of February the short month.  The Consolidated declai ed" ii -.' usual  2.1 per cent dividend on the i.-sued capital stock, in Toronto  on   March 10th.  On Febru.-uv 2Slh the Alaska Tread-  well and Alaska United companies  paid 75c and 30c per share respectively.  The Mayor of Mcrritt has received,  indirectly, a query as to whether sites  are available in Merritt suitable for a  smelter.  Dead wood, South Dakota wants a  custom cyanide plant.

The gold production of the Yukon is  reported as $-1,500,000 111 1015, but il'  dredging can be coiidiictetltluonghout  the year, we can expect a healthy in-  ctease for 1010.  District No. Ci of the AVe*4ern Federation of Miners held its 17th annual  seesion at Trail on the !)th, 10th and  llth of this month. Thru: was a fair  representation from the camps of the  district.  The Alice Concentrator aerial tramway at Creston has been purchased by  the Star Mines, Limited atSanduii.  and a number .of men aie now 011 the  job of moving it to its new fhjld.of u.-e-  tiilness.  It is reported that theMcGnne interests are contemplating continuing the  United long tunnel at Ainswoith by  nieanes of hand drilling, pending the  resumption of an air supply from the  Coffee Creek compresor.  The Chesaw News says: Mining is  wakening up. Everywhere there is.a  demand for miners. In this issue we  publish a call for bids for tunnel work  over on the Goldon Zone, west of the  Okanogan, and there is also a demand  for miners here.  The Princeton Board of Trade last  week sent to the Northwestern Mining  Congressto.be held in Spokane from  March 20 to 25, 50samples of 01 e. The  Board is to he commended that it has  faith and foresight, without which  no country is developed, and with  which mere prospects become paying  mines.'   It pays to advertise.  From Amador County, California,  comes the news that between*2,500and  3.000 people participated in a function  to celebrate the resumption of work at  the old Eureka mine at Sutter Creek  .February 2ltb. Dewatering is progressing apace. This is the property  in which T. Walter Beam is interested  as mentioned in last week's Gazette.  Messrs. Irwin and Smith were here  from Nelson the early pare of the week  looking over the Alice mine. If satisfactory arrangements can be made  they propose taking out a car of ore  which will be treated at Trail and  should it be found rich enough to  warrant its taking out they will probably operate the property on a small  scale.���������Creston Rev iew.

The metallurgical,  extraction is not nearly so complete as  at'Anaconda because a part of the ore  subjected to flotation at Miami is oxi-'  ilN-'d. Published statements give the  recovery as S3 per cent.���������Mining and"  Scientific Pi-ess.  The Columbia Copper Company has  recently given an option on theii Friday Creek property, active work to  commence not later than May 15th. A  large crew of men will lie worked. The  property lies not far from Copper ���������  Mountain, and was located about 25  years ago; Upwards of 20,000 tons of  ore have been blocked out. li. P.  Wheeler, of Conconully. Wash., is  prisidetit of the Company.���������Princeton  Star.  It is only 20 years since Heinze of  Montana, with assistance from associates, .built a little copper matting  plantatTrail. That Heinze enterprise  has grown into an immense refining  and smelting works. Before the war  Canadian copper and zinc concenstra-  tes were sent to the United States to  lie refined. But the new conditions  created by.the war brought the secondary industries connected with the  finishing ni' (*.>|>;i t a u.i y.iii>*. T 'tlie -���������  original conpir ma...!.!.; ,...>.ii. ,.,. Ti ail  are being added copper converters."  Building a copper refinery is about to  begin. The zinc reduction plant is  well on the way to completion. When  all these undertaking are under way  Trail's aspiration to become an all .  around producer of basic metals is likely to be fufilled.���������Pioneer.  Extra dividends distributed by several of the big copper companies mark  the favorable effect of the rise in metal prices. Copper is now at its highest  since 1S73 and is approaching the  prices ruling during the Civil War,  when it sold as high as 55 cents. That  was in 1SG4; in that year the United  States produced only 0000 tons of copper. Mr. John I). Ryon and other-  authorities on the subject deprecate  any further rise as likely to prove injurious to the industry. All the large  producers are sold so far ahead that  they are under no necessity to compete for business*. The regrettable-  feature of any inflation is the stimulation of new mining enterprises based,  on a price, that cannot last and the exploitation of worthless mines as a.  counter for wild gambling.���������Mining  Scientific Press.  With the completion of the IS sections of the mill, the Inspiration Consolidated Copper Company will be  treating 14.000 tons daily by flotation  at Miami, Arizona. As one of the  pleasant features of flotation plants is  that they exceed their estimated capacity, it is expected that 15,000 tons  will be treated daily in this mill, making   it   the    largest    copper-flotation  Vancouver's union depot project  has had to go by the board because  the companies could not agree.  Grant Hall, Vice-Pres. of the C.P.R,  visited Grand Forks Saturday and promised standard trains for the K. V.  line after June 4th.  Up to the 1st of March six car loads  of copper ore has been shipped to the  Greenwood .smelter from the Aberdeen mine near Merritt. THE HEDLEY GAZETTE.

'���������*     The   resignation   of Von Tir-  pitz is   announced,   the   reason  being given   as ill-health.    The  fact   is   well  known,   however  that the. admiral is   not in accord   with    the     Kaiser,   who  would like to see greater activity by the navy at this time.   It  is   evident that   this particular  moment has   been regarded by  the German Emperor as a critical moment  and he  would like  to   see  the   big    drive  of  the  Grown Paince   backed by naval  activity���������a dash for the English  coast,   perhaps,   with   Admiral  Von Capelle,  a  much   younger  man than  Von  Tirpitz, at  the  head of the navy,   we may look  for some more aggressive action  from that much tooted war engine.    The result of course will  be the  same.    We have waited  too   long and   with  too   much  vigilance to   allow any   relaxation   when  the   crisis   appears  imminent.    Meantime,   we  tire  surely, if slowly choking off the  much needed  supplies, a policy  which will   bring   Germany to  her knees sooner than any man  can realize.  the personel of the cabinet  could not be better maintained  than by this appointment. Unlike the Coast -cities, we of the  interior would appreciate a  cabinet .minister.'  The Pacific Canadian, published at New Westminster, has  just made its bow to the public.  In its introductory remarks it  says: "That there are two sides  to every question is a. truism."  It then occupies most of the  edition in illogically showing  that there is only one side and  that side is the Liberal cause in  this province. Too bad the Op  position is so lacking in editor  ial timber.  for their keep. Tlie Heed for  this road will be upon us almost  at once and with the ever-hearing'.'and of ��������� the''war- in sight,  there conies the ever-nearing  end of their internment, also.  This is the time to act.  Does the Chinook think it  gains prestige by its personal  attack against the man who is  premier (de facto) of this Province? In a recent article headed "The Honorable W. .1. Bowser" the editorial writer put a  question mark after tlie word  Honorable. Fair-minded men  regard such methods as petty.  They have no weight and generally disgust the reader. The  Chinook is a poor Opposition  organ.  Editorial Quotations  Mr. Flummorfelt went down  to defeat with, head erect and a  reputation which remains four  square to till the winds of political criticism that may blow. He  proved indisputably how an  election campaign can be fought  without the introduction of  personalities and without the  exercise of political malevolence.  He has created a precedent that  we hope in the course of years  may become an unwritten law  in the land.���������Colonist.

Edison  6*  A credit of .$75,000,000 for the  Imperial Treasury, to be expended in Canada in payment  of further munition orders to  be placed in Canada right away,  sounds mighty good and ought  to be an answer to Opposition  calamity howlers, whose chief  stock in trade is pessimistic obstruction.  With its issue of March 9th  the editorial light of the Sloean  Record went out. Jim Greer  certainly will be missed from  the editorial family of the province. Through many years he  has been identified with its  journalistic life and has always  published more than the average paper. With a splendid  education, a keen sense of  humor and an ability to look at  both sides of the question, while  willing to give fair consideration to the. other fellow's viewpoint, he made an ideal editor  and the Gazette hopes he may  soon find his  way  into the edi  torial chair again.  The   following   is from   Der  Tageblatt,   Berlin,   Germany:���������  "Let us not lull ourselves into a  state    of   false   security.    The  British fleet is   as formidable a  menace   today as   it has   ever  been.    Its  readiness for attack  or   defence   is perfect   and   its  power is  imposing.    The   vital  thing for us to know is whether  this fleet will  seek to attain its  object���������that is,   to take the offensive, or if it   will leave it to  time to   do its work.    The veil  which masks   its design the future alone can lift.    Unless Britain's   naval    power   be   overwhelmingly exaggerated,  however, our own  sea dogs can not  afford   to   amuse     themselves  much   longer by   merely showing there teeth.   To remain any  longer   in the   seclusion  of the  Kiel   Canal is to be   rediculous  today, and  tomorrow  to invite  defeat and humiliation."  9  Flight  99  You admit the International Correspondence]  Schools   are a  good thing.

Examine the hose and noz-  zels onthe spray outfit.  Order the garden seeds early  from a reliable seed house.  Take samples of all the different kini]s of seed and tost them.  White hellebore should be  fresh to be of value as an insecticide.  Tomatoes started in hotbeds  will bear fruit long before those  which are started in tho garden.  Use crop rotation in the garden to prevent the attack of  diseases which winter in the soil.  The Blind Man and His Son  Values of Farm Land  For the whole of Canada the  average value of farm land held  for agricultural purposes, whether improved or unimproved,  and including the value of  dwelling houses, farms, stables  and other buildings, is returned  as $38.90 per acre. Last year  the average value was returned  as $38.41. By provinces the  averages per acre range from  $22.48 in New Brunswick to  about $125 in British Columbia,  the values for the other provinces being as follows: Prince  Edward Island, $37.(51: Xova  Scotia, $28; Quebec, $51.3(5;  Ontario. $52.19; Manitoba. $30.-  36; Saskatchewan, $2-1.20: and  Alberta $23.15. In British Columbia the higher average is due  to orcharding and fruit growini  In striking contrast to the "Chant of  Hate " by Herr Lissatier, the German,  are the. beautiful lines of Euiile Cain-  maeits, the Beligian poet, under the  beading "The Blind Man and His  Son" translated by Lord Curzon.

"No more .1 hear the stormy wind  Amid the rigging roar;  I feel beneath my tottering feet  The firm ground of the shore.  Is this the end of all our woes?  Shall we not suffer more!"  "Father, we are in England!"  "I hear the sound of kindly speech,  But do not understand:  I feel I've wandered very far,   -  Far from the Fathciland;  How coines'it that these tones are not  Those of an unknown land ?"
