The history of every mining
camp is full of ups and downs of
mining. And the history of the
Monashee mine, Fire Valley, is
probably as interesting as that of
any camp ever established. The
mine was operated over a quarter
of a century ago, in fact, work
ceased on the Monashee. mine 28
years ago, after several years of
operation, when it was found - impossible to work the mine at a profit owing to the lack of transportation facilities, all the camp supplies
having to be packed in over a pack-
trail. Since that time the government has completed a wagon road
to Cherry Creek, some miles farther than the old Monashee mines,
and now this properiyls being developed by Okanagan men, and is
proving fabulously rich in silver-
gold quarts. The lead has been
uncovered more than & mile and a
half, and iu the workings tbe men
are in ore of big-pay value. An

The following correspondence re
the Btocking of  Long  Lake with
White Fish is self explanatory.
J. A. Motherwell, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Fisheries,
Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Sir;-
The Greenwood Board of
Trade has instucted me to call
your attention to the promise made
last year respecting the placing of
whitefish fry in Long Lake.
Following the correspondence
last year one of your officers visited
here and spoke very favourably of
the scheme.
If the matter has escaped the
notice of your Department we
trust this reminder will receive
your usual courteous attention.
Yours very truly,
V" ------  -" G. jg. Wai,tbbs, .-_;
Secretary Board of Trade,
In reply to your communica-'
tion of the 22nd instant with re*
gard to the suggested introduction
of whitefish into Long Lake, I
would advise that the Department's
opinion is that it would not seem
advisable to extend the introduction of Eastern whitefish in British Columbia waters until it has
been satisfactorily demonstrated to
be a commercial success, or likely
to be such, in Harrison and Lil-
' looefe "Lakel7~where" quantities of
fry have been placed during the
last few years. ~
In connection with Long Lake
particularly I would , direct your
attention to a copy of a communication under date of the 31st of
May last, addressed by the Department direct to William Lakeland and others, and copy of which
is enclosed herewith.
Yours truly,
Chief Inspector of Fisheries.
control of these properties in the
Okanagan Valley.   The Progressive Mining Company has been incorporated under the laws of B.C.,
which, by the way,  makes it im-'
possible to float stock in a mining
company whose properties do not
show ore in place and which have
not been passed upon by the Provincial mining engineers.     It   is
doing    away    with   wild-catting.
And there is no more risk in buying mining stock today  than in
buying'stock in any ordinary manufacturing plant.    Some day we
are going to see one of the richest
mines of silver-gold concentrates
in   the  Dominion   on   Monashee
Mountain, if all reports are true,
and, with other mining properties

shall have an  Eldorado, at  our
door, to add So the other big things
which the Okanagan is developing.-���Snderby Press.

Forty-six men were killed and 109
were wounded on the German side
during every hour the world.-war was
raging, according to an estimate arrived at by General von Altrock, a
statistician. This estimate was made
from a study��of official records.
Germany's losses totalled in de'atl

Men to the number of 13,000,000 were
under arms during the course of the
war, of whom about one in seven was
killed in battle.
The officers' corps lost 53,000 men
killed and 96,000 wounded. German

King George Approves of Medals for
Heroes of Allied Nations
King George' has approved of the
issue of a medal in silver and bronze
to those persons of allied nationality,
who almost -always at the risk or
their lives, rendered assistance to
British soldiers behind the enemy's
lines. Some of these soldiers were
prisoners of war actually iu capiiivify,
others were endeavoring- to.-.escape,
and yet - others, cat. off by the German advance', were iu hiding and
seeking, to 'rejoin' their.' unit's.- ' The
list of awards comprises ��� 133 .silver
medals "and- 573 bronze medals. In
addition to these awards 28 honorary
appointments "have been'made" to the
Order of the British Empire ' iif exceptionally deserving, -cases, while
specially prepared letters of- thanks
have been issued in upwards of 1,000
other instances. The medals will/be
distributed through tlie British embassies at'Brussels and Parisin the
near' future. ���  "
Beekeeping Profitable
Production *-of Honey on   Commercial
..   Scale in the West ' ..
A    noticeable    feature of ^Vesten*.
Canada   agriculture" in recent years
lias been the progress recorded in the
adoption of beekeeping, and the pro-'
diiction of honey as a commercial venture.     The western provinces, particularly the irrigated sections, are admirably adapted to the production of
alfalfa and other clovers, and this lias .
administered  a" pronounced  stimulus
to beekeeping which made remarkable
progress particularly in.Manitoba, Al- ���
berla and British Columbia.     The natural bloom of Alberta throughout the
summer season, affords abundant food
for bees, and the alfalfa' fields of thei'i
irrigated districts in    Southern    Alberta are fast arriving.at a leading
place    in    this    respect    in    North -
America. ���   ��� 7

that by 1977 at the latest women will

the widespread advertisement of women in recent years has 'itimulated
her to all sorts of activities, which
have already begun to intrench her
as the dominant sex. She is courted in -business, the politicians fear
