Two Promising Mines
J. H.   Duhamel and L.   Bryant
are operating    the   Silver   Cloud
mine,   a   short   distance   up  the
Phoenix gulch  from   Greenwood.
They are at present developing a
9-foot lead   containing   gold   and
silver.    Parts of this   large   lead
runs as high as $20 .to $200 in silver,   and $24  to  $36 in  gold, the
average of the  whole lead is $23.
The lead has been stripped for 30
feet,   and., continues to show the
same valuee.    This   body of  ore
would furnish a fine concentrating
project and the operators are seeking capital to erect a concentrator
of small capacity to handle the ore.
There are other   mines   in the
vicinity and adjoining, the owners
of which would  welcome a development in this direction,  consider-
able quantities of ore beingo available. -.- . ���   '.���...
Messrs. Duhamel and Bryant are
also operating the" Skylark mine,
and have shipped one car of ore.
They claim to have discovered the
I old lead in this mine, on the north
end. ^The lead is widening out,
and is of high grade. This mine
was one of the best producers of.
high grade ore eome years ago
when silver was at 60 cents, some
$160,000 worth of ore being produced. Indications are encouraging enough to conclude that it
will again assume its old position
as a high grade shipper.

' thc fog;  then listened.    Not a sound
' came in answer.    The silence of oblivion  seemed to  rest on  the face  of
the water.    He looked at-the girl. Thc
I tcrror in her face went into him like
. .1 knife.   Therc were dark shadows undo- her eyes and her lips were quivering.
"I'm afraid it's all up with us," said
she faintly. "I can't go on much longer "
"Put your hand on my shoulder, and
rest," said Ruggles. "I'm game for a
good while yet."   *
She did as lie told her, and Ruggles
swam on slowly. Thc eddies turned
and twisted thcm aboul, and soon all
sense of direction was lost. The tide
flowing out of the estuary of Etaples
was carrying then swiftly out and to
the westward. The strongest swimmer alive could not havc gained the
beach under thq/sc conditions. Ruggles began to tire.
"I'll swim again said tlie girl presently. "I'm getting numb with cold.
Havc you any idea which way the
shore is now?"
"No," Ruggles answered, "but it
wouldn't make much difference if 1
had. We're in the offshore current.
Even the channel swimmers can't
buck against thai."
"Then it's all up with us," I supose,
she said lifelessly.
"Not by a good deal,'' Rugglcs answered. "If we can keep afloat ;i while
longer, we're pretty apt to get picked
up by somc of thc fishing-boats that
go out of Etaples with the tide. I'll
shout again."
Tic did so, but as before without result. Then, glancing at his companion
he saw that shc seemed to bo settling
in the water. Hc caught her with his
left hand and drew her to his shoulder.
"Hang on to me," hc gulped, "I'm
not tired."
He no longer tried lo make onward
progress, merely paddling to keep
them both afloat as long as possible.
The eddies grew more violent, twirling about them like driftwood.    The

'For an instant he was on thc point
Germans    Constructing   Giant   Commercial and Passenger
Airships
The Germans are working feverishly to construct giant, commercial
and passenger airships and airplanes,
according to a report from Roman-
shorn. The first trials were successfully held of two monster machine-
above Lake Constance.
The airship Nordstern, greatly surpassing the Zeppelin J.:odcnsec in size,
capacity and power, flew for a half
hour around the lake with a crew of
seven men. At the yari.it- time a new
giant hydroplane, whose motors totalled 1,000 horse-power, made aerial
trips with 20 passengers.
Both machines were recently completed at Errcdrichshavcn, where the
airship factory is said to have doubled in size since the armistice, and
other monsters have already been begun. The Germans are concealing the
results of the trials, s.nd no reports of
Ihem a/o published in thc press.
What's Wrong- With Canada
A Few Suggestions That Might Help
To Improve Matters
Seeking an answer to thc above
question, Richard Irving, in the Farmers' Advocate, suggests that beforc
we can make Canada an ideal and a
cheaper place to live iu, wc maj" have
to have:
Morc overalls and fewer dress suits.
More clay bricks and fewer gold

glancing shoreward, Rugglcs discovered that the beach had likewise disappeared. That settled it; hc turned
on his side and swam straight out
through the .stagnant water with its
wispy wreaths of fog.
Presently the grey elusive opacity
was all about liim. He rolled over and
Iricd to peer beneath it, and was suc-
lessful, in so far as he saw llic crim-

appeared to be motionless, and Rugbies swam slowly in that direction. As

water, and stared at him without a
smile.
"Well, here wc an- again Mr. Ruggles,"  said  shc.
"You're loo. far out," said Rugglcs.
"You'd better, start back. Do you remember what 1 told you about-the
offshore .current?"

Trees for Roadsides
Wind-Break to Prevent Early Frosts
And Other Evils
Newer Canada will learn as older
parts of the Dominion have had ^o
learn the value of trees both "in wood
areas and on the roadside. Dr. VV. W.
Andrews recently addressed a gathering of members of the Kiwanis CIttb
at Regina on tree planting in the.
country planning.
The doctor dealt very fully with thc
question of planting trees on either
side of the main roads in Saskatchewan, and made the positive statement
that if such were done, autos could
be used for twelve months in the ycar
instead of about half <that length of
time as is the case now. In order to
do this, the gauge of sleighs must also
be enlarged, a matter which has been
mooted for some timc.
A line of trees on either side of thc
road would prevent thc drifts from
congregating on the highway itself,
and thus, where the sleighs and autos
would rim, the ordinary fall of snow
would obtain. The trees', forming a
wind-break, would also keep thc wayfarer warm.
Thc value of trees from the viewpoint of keeping water in the ground
was also made apparent by the speaker, and again as a wind-break to prevent early frosts and other evils which
are the enemies of crops.

Nova Scotia Man Gives the Reason
Why He Advises Sufferers From
Kidney Trouble to Use Dodd's Kidney Pills.
River Dennis, N.S., April 26th. ���
(Special.)���"Dodd's kidney pills helped me wonderfully. My. back is better and as I haven't taken any other
medicine since starling to take them,
they must have done me a lot of
good."     ���
In these words, Alexander J. MacLeod, a well-known resident here
gives his reason why hc praises
Dodd's Kidney Pills and why he says,
"I would advise anybody who has
kidney trouble to give Dodd's Kidney
Pills a trial." _ " :
Tlie reason Dodd's Kidney Pills are
popular all over Canada is that people
have tried them and found them good.
Dodd's Kidney Pills havc been in use
in Canada for morc thau thirty years
Thcy have been used by thousands of
people suffering from various forms
of kidney trouble, such as ���rheumatism,
dropsy, sore back, weakness, diabetes
and Blight's disease. ;
"Ask any one of these thousands "lo
give you his opinion of Dodd's Kidney
Pills. It,is on the relief afforded sufferers from' lfidjiey trouble that
Dodd's Kidncy'Pills have built ."their
reputation- as the -sovereign, remedy
for sick kidneys. ��� ' ���    ' -
Marked Increase in Number of Small
Herds, Says Commissioner
"Saskatchewan has not yet one-
tenth as many sheep as we' should
have in thc province," said J. D. Rob-
retson, livestock commissioner for
Saskatchewn, in spcakingjaf the sheep
breeding situation. "As far as numbers are concerned we come very low
among the provinces of Canada. ,The
small province of Nova Scotia has almost twice as.many as the large province of Saskatchewan. Ifowcver,
breeders and farmers in general are
agreed that the sheep industry of the
province is in a thrifty condition and
that satisfactory profits can be made
from thc keeping of sheep."
Until the past four or _ five years
sheep breeding was confined almost
entirely to the southwestern portion
of the province, where they were
maintained on large ranches. Therc
has been a very marked increase in
the number of sheep bcing kept in
small flock's upon farms. This addition is not confined to one part of the
province, but flocks arc bcing started
from the north to thc south. A striking proof of how beneficial this increase in thc number of farm, flocks
has been to the pure bred sheep bus-
ncss was shown at thc sheep sales
last fall, when large numbers of pure
bred rams were sold. at prices vcry
satisfactory to farmers throughout the
province who desired to secure flock
headers for thcir small flocks. If the
present prices continue there is bound
to be a strong and steady demand for
high class, pure bred animals for
many years to come. The' factors
whicli have retarded the increase of
the sheep in this province in thc past
wrcrc unsatisfactory market prices,
cost of wire fencing and'losses from
coyotes and sheep-killing dogs.
The first of these factors has been
remedied.    The  co-operative  markct-
Prince Edward's
Alberta Ranch
Will be of Great Importance to the
Business of Stock-breeding
In Western Canada
The plans of thc Prince of Wales
for his ranch in Alberta are described
by the agricultural correspondent of
the London Times. Its 7,000 acres
he says, are entirely under grass and
at present it is without suitable -or
adequate buildings. The soil is a
rich alluvial loam, and the grasses
it carries arc luxuriant and provide
good feeding for stock in summer and
winter. . A certain area is mowed
cvery year to provide hay for young
stock in winter, but the greater part
is grazed throughout the year. The
climate is severe, but cattle and
horaes can be out-wintered with safety and advantage. The summer production of grass exceeds the present
requirements of thc stock on a'properly managed ranch, "and the surplus, then withered and dry, but of
about the same feeding value as English hay, suffices to carry thc animals
through the winter. The climate renders this simple system of "haymakr
ing" completely practicable in Alberta, and only thc needs of young stock
housed in winter have to be provided
in the elaborate British method.
Although there is no arable land
within thc limits of .the E.P. ranch
at present, the acquisition of cultivated land is contemplated, with.a view
to making thc ranch better adapted to
the requirements of the improved
classes of cattle and sheep it is proposed to introduce. With the same
object, suitable buildings and fencing
are to be erected in due course.
The ranch is to be stocked with
cattle, horses and sheep. Hitherto
horses have been bred chiefly; but-
cattle-raising will form the main feature under his royal highness' ownership. The immediate, supervision of ]
ing of wool through the co-operative'tbe ranch will be entrusted to Proj-
branch of the department of agricul- .fessor Carlylc, whp, .with Mr -Lane's .

In the government elevator at Calgary, according to ��� figures supplied

It is-thotight-that there is very little,
wheat left in the hands of the farmers,
and undoubtedly the most of it is held
by thc nulling companies and the elevators.
H. W. Wood of the U.F.A. states
that- thc recent order of the Canada
Wheat Board indicates that there is
plenty of wheat ground for the domestic trade. If there is a surplus of
wheat in the'hands of'the millers, it
is up to thc board to dispose of it.1
and also give the millers as big a'

thc price. .'

' _ Thepity of it'.ail, _says~ the" Asia"

Valuable for Steamship   and  Battleships, Giving Wider Cruising
Raidius
A new fuel fluid of greater heat
value per unit than either coal or fuel
oil, and hence particlarly valuable as
a fuel for steamships and battleships,
giving them a wider cruising raidius,
was described in-a paper by Jerome
Alexander, a. New York ' chemist,
which was read by Dr. Harry H.
Holmes, of'Oberlin College, chairman
of thc National Coiloidrcscarch council, before the American Chemical Society.
The paper declared that the ncw
fuel utilizes coal waste artd. cheap tars,
these ingredients being", dispersed in
fuel oil by colloidal action, and that
the action of a certain "fixing" agent,
whose nature is kept secret, results in
a fuel which combines thc valuable
qualities for heating of both coal and
oil. Peat, lignite,- cellulose waste,
sawdust and similar inferior fuels may
be utilized in the new process Mr. Alexander' declared. He said that thc
ncw fuel could be piped, stored and
burned virtually as fuel oil is, and
that as~ a fuel for steamships it is
virtually double the value of -either
coal or thc present forms of fuel oil;
Hc ;>lso declares the new fuel is very
valuable for laying smoke screens in
warfare.
Whole Collection Will Illustrate Every Phrase of Nation's
War Life
The Imperial War Museum, which
the King will open on June 9 in London, England, will occupy the crystal
palace for four years, pending the provision of a permanent home.,   r~
Exhibits will- total upwards of 100,-
000, and the first consignments are
now being moved in. The whole.collection will illustrate every phrase of
the nation's war life, at home and in
the fighting fronts.
For three years after the war cab'
inet had approved the formation of
the museum, a committee has been
collecting material in striking contrast
to the casualness of previous generations, which left in London's.keeping
only a pair of kettle drums as the sole
souvenirs of Marlborough's campaign,
and five field gnns and 200 cuirasses 'struciion
as the mementoes of Wellington's
battles.
At the Palace, there will be everything from a tank to a flag day trifle.

has 100,000 worthless horses today.    !
According to economists^' prices of
horses before the .war were proportionally too high, higher than almost
any other class of article. During the
war, prices of horses .did not go up,
while prices of almost^everything else
did. This along with a world-wide
appeal for grains and meats, and the
high pricey being paid for these materials was {responsible for the depression in the business.   "~
There is a revolution due, however;
in the: horse business. The day of the
cayuse is gone. These light horses
are being offered by the thousands at
but a few cents a pound. Some horsemen are now advocating making meat
of them for shipment to the countries
where horse meat is consumed. Some
shipments, in fact, have recently been
made.
Whether or not Canada is going
to play any great part in supplying
horses tb Europe, therc is one part
she will have to play; and that is her
own. "We are alone in our own
boat." We cannot look to .European
countries for large shipments of purebred horses to build up our studs.

DIGESTIVE TROUBLES
CAUSE DISTRESS

-     "Thin,"Watery"Blood   "
' Do not think that because your
stomach is easily" upset you are thc
victim of some serious malady." One
of the most common predisposing
causes of indigestion is anaemia, or
thin, watery blood. In fact it has become generally recognized that healthy activity of the stoniach is impossible unless the blood is rich and red.
��� Dr. Williams Pink Pills have been
found most valuable in cases of indigestion, nervous dyspepsia and stomach" .Vvcakness',' just because - they are
a blood builder and nerve tonic." Thc

Says British Reserve is Really  Just
"Shyness"
���   Frederic W. Wyle, -American- news-/
paper correspondent, who represented'
the London Daily Mail, and its asso- ���
ciated papers in Germany, addressing
the Canadian Club, said that, after 20
years of thinking it over, he had at
last begun to understand thc Britisii
character.    Mr. Wylc said that what
Americans thought coldness and reserve in  the  Englishman   was' rcallj'
shyness.    ' "
Mr. Wyle, who is of Irish descent,
said hc sympathized with the Irish
raccj but any deal with the Irish 'must -
be a square deal within the British
empire. It was a political necessity he
said, that Ireland must remain within
the,British Imperial system. Great
Britain could not give complete territorial independence to Ireland, Mr.'
Wyle declared. ��
