It was Napoleon whok said the British never knew'  - "i * - f-  wheri they -were' beaten.     Mr. ^Atkiha  always was shy^on logic.   Theoretically and logical'y   he  was  soiindly  trounced at Waterloo,  but that important fact not haying been able to  impress itself upon his illogical mind,  he did not realize that he ought to run  away, and so he stayed where he was  and turned the whole current of modern history.    In the present war there  have been innumerable occasions when  he ought to have given up,  and probably would  have done so if he had  stopped, to  think about the principles  involved in the strife,  but some illogical fellow  would start in singing that  absurd music hall ballad about a place  and a girl   he  had  never seen,   rind  forthwith victory  would be  wrested  from-the clutches of defeat."  - -".'his is'e'xactl^'irniri^wIOinnie're-'  marks of Sir Arthur Qniller-Coiich in  a lecture delivered not long agobefore  the University of Cambridge, in which  he    touched   whimsically    upon   Mr.  Atkins' contempt of sentiment,   flubdub and mock heroics.   This he said  was usually /overlooked by well inten-  tioned; serious persons, who, with np  intention  of dying for their country,  were calling upon others to make the  sacrifice.     One of, these, li clergyman  in the west, deeming "Tipperary" in ���������  adequate   to the spirit   that   should  animate a soldier in this war, sat down  and composed to. the tune of it a lyric  better calculated to brace the moral  fibre.    Here are two precious lines of  it���������"Geod-bye,   self-indulgence;   farewell,   th? soft-arm-chair",   to   which  the British, infantry man responded,'  ''Have a banana."  (Laughter)   Truly,  when one came to think of it, it was  hard  to find in a few words a better  answer'. ���������  "Send for the Boys' and Girls' Brigade to set old England free; send for  my mother, and my sister,  and my  brother but for God's sake don't send  tor me."      This is the sort of lilt that  catches Tommy's unsentimental fancy;  and that pur men marched, and -so  obstinately,  too, to this stuff,  while  by rights,   they shoulel  be answering  the perpetual  "Watch on the Rhine"  with a perpetual "Rule, Brittannia."  Well, our Rhine was not the Thames,  Our Rhine,   our King's frontier, was  the Royal sweep of seven oceans.   The  waters of our baptism flow past Dover,  through the Straits of Hercules, down  past the Cape   of Storms���������to divide  again  to reach  the coasts of Canada,  Hindustan, and Australia.   Our Bonn  and Bingen and Drachenfels  are the  heads of Sydney, the ramparts of Quebec, the citaelel rock of Gibraltar.  We  did not,   as  all our glorious   poetry  attested, bray of England as a "world-  Power," actual or potential,  but we  did habitually narrow and intensify  our national  passion upon the home  that of any eiicoiihtere'iVhitherto. It is  of a "high grade and hag .very little rock  muted with it. Though,expected by all  in the community, this! latest development is a source, of quiet satisfaction  to all who have interests at stoke irr  the town or mine. *  Considerable activity is noticeable in  tho office department ,and it is stated  ���������r  that d, prospectus is being   prepared  v  .with a view to raising fcrone-y to;place  ~    -       - - * -*/,     ���������-...-  the mine em a substantial shipping basis .The question of gett}ii*g the coal from  the mine to the   shipping   point  has  been settled. For- a tiinij it was undecided as to whether an aerial tramway or  a surface tramway .would be -the 'best  means of-bringing the,,coal,down.   In  the former case two pverheab cables  would have to be built over the top  of the mountain and straight down to  a point whence a connection could be  made across   the river; with the G. N.  trapk. A .right pf.^way for the aerial  train was begun this fall and completed  quite  recently; but now  it is, uneler-  steiod that this project will abandoned  in favor, of a surface tram which is to  through the  "Gap", near where the  present wagon road leads to the mine.  This decision is   doubly   satisfactory  because it spells operations on -i:large  scale,' the great'6T"jec������r6n"i������- the"aerial']  tramway being that it would be incapable of handling a heavy output.  It would also seem -to indicate that  sufficient capital is actually in sight to  put    the    more    expensive    project  through..   After all its ups and' downs  Coalmont bids fair to come irfto its  own,  and that dawning prosperity is  well deserved. The possession, in commercial q nan ties',  of higlr grade coal  with good cokeing possibilities is sure  to have a tremenelous effect on. the  commercial   activities of   the entire  Similkameen.  GOLD RUSH 1NB.C.  LIKELY THIS WINTER  ROLL  GAME  ROLLS    an<-* fc*ie l'carts now being- defended."  An official of the Grand Trunk Paci-  ficRaiiway, who has just. returned to  Montreal, states that he. expects to see  a new gold rush into North British  Columbia this winter.  "Fifty years ago," he said, "miners  in search of placer gold .struggled  through the wilderness and negotiated  rapid rivers to reach the Omineca region, which had been reported to be  rich in both gold and silver. It was a  long and nard trek to get into that remote part of the country, for Victoria,  B. C, was then the nearest base of  supplies.  "With the opening of the   Grand  Trunk  Pacific this region   has   been  brought several hundred miles nearer  a supply centre, and interest irr  this  district is reviving to such  an extent  that there  is likely  to be a rush   of  prospecteirs eluring the coming win ter  They will take in their supplies from.  Vanderhoof, B. C,  so that they can  begin work immediately spring opens  and thus get in a full summer's work.  Mining   men   declare    that   the    big  strikes will be made  when the region  has    been   thoroughly   explored   and |  state that there are rich quartz ele-  posits as well as placer golel and silver.  It is common knowledge among Hudson's Bay  men that the Indians hunting in  that part of the country use  silver nuggets   for bullets,  arrd   also  carry consielerable quantities   of gold  and Silver to Fort Simpson anel Hazel-  ton in exchange for goods."���������Ex.  The long .desired telephone line between Oroville and Penticton is on a  ft-ir way to completion, and is complete as far as the Canadian end of it  .is concerned. This new connection  will satis-fy a long felt need and will  mean a great deal ter business interests  on both sides of the boundary. Just  how much of the work is done and  how much it is appreciated by our  immediate;neighbors to the south can  best be gathered from the words of  tbe Oroville Gazette ,which writes it  up as fe-llo,ws: {,  The poles are now set, wires strung  and the line-in working order to the  spot orr tbe earth's surface representing the division .between Canada and  the United States, directly north of  Oroville. And it is only such a line as  marks the perfect finish of all public  work perfqrmed on the Canadian side  of the boundary. It is not a piece pf  contract work where contractors line  their own pockets by shirking, glossing oyer and .substituting inferior  material as is too often the custom in  this country where i public contract  is generally a private graft. The line  is put irr to stay and perform its functions to the highest stage of possible  efficiency. There are 35 cedar poles to  the mile, with No. 10 double copper  wires.    No line in use is any better.  Now that tho Canadians have carried out their promise according to  contract, those at this end of the. mutual understanding are getting busy,  and the extension of the connecting  lifik^etweerTlDrovIIle aricrthe'boundary will commence next week. The  line from hero to connect with the  Canadian lipe wijl be exactly in accordance with the one just completed  from Fairview. The completion of the  line wjll place Oroville irr temch with  ninety-eight offices in Canada, and  will be pf inestimable advantage to  the public on both sieles of the boundary.  MEXICAN SITUATION BAD  Villa Appears to Have the Carranza-Obregon Fraction on the Run  Official ad/vices reveal the situation  as more confused than it has been in  months. The official tele-grams summarized events as follows:  Gen Guterri'z, selected provisional  chairman of the convention at Aguas  Calientes, has decided to continue  Gen. Francisco Villa in command of  all the troops controlled by the convention. Villa lias advauced to Ira-  puato without resistance and American consular agents say ire will continue to Quertato and the vicinity of  Mexico City without difficulty.  Gen. Obregon, in the Mexican capital, loyal to Carranza, has formally declared war on Gen. Villa. Unrest and  apprehension prevail in Mexico City  as tire Carranza troops have been leaving the city all day. The purpose of  the move is unexplained.  Gen. Obregon will leave the Mexican  capital  Saturday.    One  message said  he  was going  to Salirra Cruz,   from  which  point on the west coast it was  thought he would move north to Guadalajara and  attempt  to get into the  rear of the Villa forces. Another telegram spoke of his probable departure  for Vera Cruz, where it is supposed ire  will join Gen. Carranza next Monday  formally to take possession of the city  when the American forces under Gen.  Funston leave.    All the public offices  in Mexico City have been vacated and  the American   agents   there   do   not  kno.w whether it is the purpose of the  Carranza-Obregon    fraction   to   leave  the place undefended or   whether a  small gaiTlsron_ivilHwf-^k������j������rthere*yrhile*" -  Gep.���������'���������;Gonzales and   .other  Carranza  forces  move' north  to meet the   advance of the Villa columns.  GERMANY SADLY  NEEDS RED METAL  One of the American Smelting and  Refining company's staff has been in  Germany recently and while on a visit  to the Utah   offices of the company  told something of the metal situation  in that country.     He says that they  are.working the copper mines in that  country day and, night and getting put  every pound of ore  that it is possible  to mine.   .The demand is so great that  the supply is altogether inadequate,  and the mines will only be able to supply a very small portion of the requirements.  It is reporteel in Berlin that 35c a  pound was being paid for the metal.  Even under normal conditions Germany imports most of its copper metal,  and dealers in foreign countries are  taking some encouragement from the  fact that they believe that all the  countries now engaged in war will  soon he demanding more of all nietals  than are being produced. -While .there  has been no special derrrand for silver  it is known that foreign countries need  a considerable supply for coinage.  The smelter people in America think  that leael will hold at $3.50 and'not be  lowered in price. Copper has been in  better demanel in the eastern markets  and it is hoped that its price will soon  be advanced. Zinc has climbed to oc  a pound, a gain of about one-half cent  a pound. Silver will show an improvement as quickly as the trade to the  Orient is opened up, aud when fhe  European demand is added to this  there should he an excellent market  for the white metal.���������Ex.  GRAB SUSPICIOUS GERMAN  Otto Werth, a wall known German  resident at Rock Creek, was taken by  the police at Midway on Monday. He  had been acting rather suspiciously,,  was making certain shipments out of  the country and had been expressing  his contempt for the English somewhat extra vagently. He is a German  subject and a trained soldier. He was  turned over to the local cornpany of  militia and is now detained at the  local barracks. Capt. Kirk visited  Rock Creek on Thursday to enquire  into the matter.���������Grand Forks Gazette.  A British soldier in Belgium one  morning wending his way to camp  with a fine rooster in his arms, was  stoped by his colonel to know if he  hael been stealing chickens. "No Colonel" was the reply, "I saw the old  fellow sitting on the wall and I order-  eel him to crow for 'Old England' and  he wouldn't, so I just took him prisoner.   .  A Scotch paper-, commenting em the  appointment of Admiral   Jellicoe   to  the command  of the British fleet  home w a ters, has the following:  We pin our faith to Jellicoe,  He, with a British shellicoe,  Will send our foes to hellicoe,  And then all will be wellicoc.  rn  "ONE SPOONFUL  ENOUGH"  SAYS DRUGGIST  F. M. Gillespie, druggist states that  the simple mixture of buckthorn bark,  glycerine, etc., known as A.dler-i-ka, is  causing great  surprise   because  just  ONE   SPOONFUL relieved constipation,  sour or gassy stomach   almost  IMMEDIATELY.    It is so thorough a  bowel cleanser that it is used successfully in appendicitis.   Adler-i-ka acts  on BOTH lower and upper bowel and  the  INSTANT effect is   astonishing.  It never gripes and is perfectly safe to  use.  udtt  d.1 Till-: 1J.13DLKY GAZE1TE NOV 2i,  191-1  m  im todft  and  Similkameen Advertiser.  Subscriptions in'Advance  Pci Yriii- .'

When England'is in con Hid, the versatile'Henri with his usual levity and  recklessness of results .--c-iiik1.s' the  ���������same shrill clarion across the country,  declaring that we' have neither part  nor- lot in the affairs of the Empire  beyond our own doorstep.  The Kingston Standard say.-"Of the  .several hundred war.'prisoners--Germans and Austrians���������at Fort Henry,'  in this city, we venture it that there  are score's there who have said less  against the Emgire, at war, than lias  Henri Bnur'a.s<-a. And yet they are  prisoners and he is free. We, of  course, do not atlvocate Bourassa's  iniprij-oiinierit,   but  we are .frank   to  pay  we do   not iiiielorstaiiii, why  his  paper, Le Devoir, is not Mippre'ssed'by  the government.     It is a  menace to a  Uniteel Canaela and a United Empire."  Tin-  French population   of   Quebec  are loyal  enough,  or  would' be so   if  left alone; their actions on many occa-  .   sions have proven this, though legions  of industrious liars "on   both sides of  politico have done their utmost to im-  .pugn  that loyalty.. ..Second only, to  the sil ver  tongued Wilfrid in   grace,  eloquence   anel   parliamentary   guile,  Bourassa  has,  or once had, _a hold em  the affections of the Lower Canaeliaris  almost as strong as  that of the great  ; leaeler himself: and Judas-wise  he set  about   to   betray  them.     During  the-  Boer war  he preached  open  sedition,  and today he is cautiously feeling how-  far  he may  go with  his  campaign of  disloyalty.     By declining   to   permit  his speaking within   her- halls Queens  University has already given him one  hint,   and he  stands in the  way of receiving many more.  If a.-speaker ever  panelereil to racial  feeling and ignorance, Henri Bourassa  is the   man.     Shifty  as Laurier is,   to.  name him in comparison with Laurier  is political  sacrilege.     He is the King  of Commonplace,, the Bishop of Bun-  come,   the  Prince  of  Piffle.    He  can  talk more and say less than any living  French    Canadian    except     Armanel  Lavergne.     Away back in the closiDg  years   of  the  last  century  when  the  Boers appeareel to have us fought to a  standstill,   he conceived  the brilliant  idea  of luring  his  French   Canadian  compatriots    away   fronr   the   Union  Jack   and    inducing   them   to   rally  round the banner of Henri Bourassa.  That was fifteen years ago: he is still  convalescing from his bright idea and  hasn't had another since.    Bourassa is  still a romantic figure on the platforms  of Quebec: but he is politically elead,  and a due recognition of his immense  efforts   would be a statute of punk,  festooned with paper flowers, decorated with  tin horns and inscribed with  the words into which a witty Eastern  editor divided his name and character  "Foily    thon:-������nil    Austrians   were  lniiieil in   one trench" runs  a news report of last week���������and live times fmly  aching   hearts   buried  their  grief and  tried to smile out on life with the hurt  puzzled   look of a child that  has been  struck  and knows  not why.     That is  the real tragedy of the war.     When a  man   is  elead, he  is dead   for all time;  but who, in Lhe empty years-, will'bind  up lhe broken   hearts   that cannot diii  and   have no   wish   lo   live?- Yet the*  women elo  not flinch.    They seem the  incarnate spirit of foi titude among us.  Adversity  is  like rain.    It falls  upon  foul  ground   to   make   it fouler:  and,  upon good ground  to make it blossom  wiLh  beauty "beyond  all   belief.    The  stiit'e in Em ope, has pretty well stripped' away the   tinsel- of circumstance  and reduced   human-nature  to its elements-,  discovering   some'''not   much  above the  brutes and others just a little lower than the ailguls.    One of the  most simply sublime  efforts that  the  war has produced is the. letter written  by a Russin mother  to her son in the  trenches,   anel   found-  upon   his  elead  body.  "Your father was killed faraway  from us at Las-yan, and -now I am  sending you to the sac reel duty of the  elefence of our- dear country against a  strong anel terrible enemy. Remember  that you are the son eif a hero. My  heart bleeds and I weep as I ask you  to show yourself woithy of him: I feel  all the fatal honor of my words, the'  suffering that they can bring to inland to us all. Nevertheless, I say  them yet again'  - "We elo not live forever- in this  world. What is the life of one human  being? A drop of water in ������he ocean  of life of magnificent Russia. We shall  not always exist, but she must haveVa  long and prosperous life,    I know that  .W.eU-shall be forgotten and that our  happy descendenls will not reinember  thoee who sleep in soldiers' graves.

The accident m  which little Jirnniie  McLeod was injured on Tuesday evening,   while perhaps not serious  in   itself, might have been not .only serious  but fatal.     Of course, it was perfectly  unintentional,   but that is sorry consolation to the boy or his parents when  the damage is done.  It is a case where  all those concerned, including  the victim himself, were equally to blame, in  playing games which  they know perfectly  well wantonly endanger  those  engaged.     The boys at  the school are  not bad fellows;   but, in class and out,  they are altogether too  inconsiderate  of the persons anel property of  other-  people.     This Week the accident rnen-  tibned occurred,  last week an infant  on the street hael his scalp  opened by  a  rock embedded in a snowball and a  ! bombardment   of   the   school   fences  with stones  continues to  be a popular  form'of exercise. It isrfill pure thoughtlessness of course;   hut there are times  when thoughtlessness becomes criminal.    A couple   of inches either way  in    Tuesday's   accident   might  have  meant one boy's death  anil a black  shadow  over another  boy's   life.     A  teacher's jurisdiction over such matters is necessarily  very  limited; and,  in all  Kindness,   we must frankly say  that things of the kind would happen  a good deal less frequently if parents  Gooc| /Horning:!

He's one of those men with  an absurd fear of the "waste-circulation" bugaboo  -^-cannot get away from the& haunting thought that  ������illy IQ out 6f every 100 readers of a newspaper  inay be possible buyers of his goods.  m  m  So he refused to advertise, and \yent a-canvassing  ���������inviting people to come to his piano recitals.  Then he wondered \vliyfe  m  This is why":  He,wasn't reaching the people.  His canvassers rang every door-bell in  town. They talked to some one in every  house.  But one in every household isn't enough  ���������particularly if it doesn't happen to be  the right person. And, as a rule, it wasn't  the right person���������it was a servant, or a  child. The woman of the house was seldom  Been; the man of the house, never.  Now, if the piano maker had placed an  ad. in the newspaper, it would have reached  thousands, where the canvassers could  reach only hundreds.  And even though only 10 per cent, of the  rcders are actual piano buyers, this does  not mean that the advertising read by the  other 90 per cent, is wasted. Advertising  talks, not only to the prospective buyer.  but also to his wife, his grown-up sons and  daughters, his mother���������even his mother-  in-law. Their coaxing will help to convince  the head of the house-'���������and pretty soon  there'll be a piano in that home.
