���Word was received by. the
Boundary G. W. V. A. from various semi-official sources that certain individuals at Boundary

manner and a request was made
for an investigation and, if substantiated, action was to betaken.
On Sunday a delegation from
Greenwood, augmented by contingents from Midway and Rock
Creek, went fully into the
matter. It was proven that
drunken carousals, sprees and

of German ^victories were received, that pro-German state-}
ments were made and some citizens of Boundary Falls were
subjected to insults by -fliese so-
called British subjects. The

of this has not been heard as a
report has been sent to headquarters and in the meantime the

Great enthusiasm was shown at
the'semi-annual meeting of "The
Get-Together Club Ine" which was
held in Silverton, last month, when
the balance sheet for the first half
year was read by the secretary.
The principal project of the club
since its incorporation in July last
has been the erection of a Memorial Hall for the people of Silverton,
which haa met with such gigantic
success that the Hall as it stands
today, with the interior^complete,
is practically paid for. It has been
built entirely by public subscription
and free labor. A presentation
was made to the secretary treasurer
on behalf of the club by J. P. Me-
Dermott, whose speech waB much
appreciated by the members. The
new trustees for the ensuing half
year are: W. Tattrie and G. T.

on Dec.-22. This is an increase of
more than 50 cents in about a
month, and of $1.10 per 100 pounds
since March last. If maintained
for a year the increase of $1.10
would add nearly $500,000 to the
gross production of British Columbia mines, which was 4,829,962
pounds in 1918. The price was
not far from its cnrrent__level_a _
year ago.
R. Abernethy and associates of
Spokane, have been developing the
Victor mine, on Maus creek, Fort
Steel district, for some years past.
The ore contains galena and zinc
blende associated with iron pyrite
in a quartz gangue. The quartz
vein varies in width up to five feet
and contains ore at seyeral points.
It has been opened by two drifts,
each about 400 feet long and 125
feet apart vertically. A building
which has been under construction
is now ready for the concentrator
and the installation of the machinery will commence as soon as delivery i3, made.
H. R. Van Wagenen, general
manager of the Canada Copper corporation made & recent statement
of the affairs of that company,
which has one of the biggest mining plants in Canada at Allenby,
four miles from Princeton. The
plant is about completed, although
another million dollars may be
used in enlarging it. Already the
company has expended $2,500,000
and in addition railroad connections and a long power' line is
under constrcntion, and when completed will make tbe total investment close to^ S6,000,000. Mr,
Van Wagenen sayB the ore at tbe
company's property on Copper
mountain is not dissimilar to that
of the Hidden Creek mine afe
Anyox'and of the-Britannia mine

equipment essential to economical
treatment cf low grade ore has
been provided. "Thereis a tonnsge
of 10,000,000 in sight, with 2,000,-

Ruggles's general idea of a Turkish
harem was that of most people of the
western world, based chiefly on perusal of the "Arabian Nights" and other
descriptions in more modern ta'cs,
and which must afford thc latter-day
Turks considerable amusement. The
stock properties were of fullsomc
beauties, in silken "panties" drawn in
above Morocco slippers with curlcd-
up toes, flopping about on divans,
blowing perfumed smoke from nargi-
lchs, and observing indolently the ablutions of sister captives splashing in-
marble fountains and attended by
semi-nude     slave women   of  African
and  legs  and
scimitars, nothing but a wholesome
brightness and cheer. Through an
open window came the rollicking
song of a warbler, together wilh the
odor of roses and jasmine.
From behind the portieres at the
far end of thc room there came a
rustle; then thc curtains were slid
smartly back with a clicking of gilded rings, and Miss Elliot entered, at
the head of a charming group of
girls. Ruggles rose to his feet and
stood supporting himself with his
cane. He was scarcely able to believe his eyes. Harem ladies? These
lovely sylphs gowned in the latest
Parisian models! ' Thcy wcrc just
such charming creatures as he had
frequently seen stepping from sparkling limousines to enter the Ritz at
the tea-hour. Thcy were wonderful.
His head'swam as he looked at them.
Such was Ruggles's first impression. -That ol the girls was of a so'-t
lo be compared to such emotions as
origin;     monkeys,     parrots,     Persian      . .
cats,  a  good   many  bare  arms   might have  filled  the  pulsating bos
things, and,  guarding  ��.'"s  of   the  maidens  of  Thrace
the door, huge blackamoors of lhe ox
variety, bearing drawn scimitars and
with  forbidding scowls.
Art had combined wilh literature to
paint this picture in Ruggles's mind,
ancl although the modern atmosphere
of Hamid Pasha's palace had eliminated any expectation of so barbaric a
setting as the above, he was still
quite unprepared for thc milieu of thc
apartmc.it into which he was ushered
by Sarah, a few minutes after -Miss
Elliot's haughty and silent entrance

of triumph at having gained his point.
Rather, he regretted thai it had been
placed in question, making it .necessary for him to exert an authority on
winch he had hoped not to be obliged
to insist. Yet, on the whole, he was
nol altogether sorry that thc issue
"had been raised. He liked" Miss Elliot
and respected her, and counted upon
her aid in helping to carry out his
moral obligation -to Hamid- Pasha,
but when all was said and done her
services had been, retained subject to

Is the Future
With Airplanes?
Sir Percy Scott Says Battleships Are
Admiral Sir Percy Scott, who six
years ago foretold the ascendancy of
the submarine, now declares that the
battleship is obsolete, and that "the
future is with the airplane." Some
who differ from him imply that, admitting a certain amount of truth in
the dictum, there'is a suspicion also
of a desire for sensationalism and for
maintaining the character of thc prophet.   Let us see.
By the summer of. 1918 thc torpedo
airplane was becoming a serious
.proposition.' Among thc British plans,
which included the bombing of Berlin,
was a. project for. an attack on thc
German fleet by largc numbers, of airplanes, each carrying one torpedo.
Already these craft had bc.cn employed in various theatre of war, but by
the autumn of 1918 it was possible to
prepare for their usc on a largc scale.
Jt will be argued that battleships can
defend themselves against aerial attack; and that is true. They also have
thc means of defense' against submarine attack. But, as lhc experience of
the Avar showed in one case, so it will
prove in the other; the possession of
a means of defense by no means connotes security, Tlie submarine can
attack unseen; thc airplane will be
able to make up for its visibility by
numbers. It must bc remembered,
too, that thc bombs and torpedoes
contrived toward thc end of thc war
were far more destructive, and the art
of using them less uncertain.
Not to err ou onc sidc, it may bc
conceded lhat Sir Percy Scott's dictum is only a broad generalization,
not to bc taken loo literally. Even so,
it musl.be obvious that lhc. military
affairs of the nations havc entered
upon a ncw phase, and the plans of
all thc war offices will havc accordingly to bc modified. No onc who
now considers these questions can
hope to arrive at any sound conclusion unless hc divests himself of prc-|
conceived ideas. He must dismiss the!
conception of war as waged in the j
struggle of 19M-1S, for throughout
lhat war, despite the amazing dcvcl-
poments    of mechanical    appliances,

One of the finest discoveries in
medicine was given to the public
when "Catarrhozone" was placed on
thc market about 'fifteen- years ago.
Since then thousands have been cured
of asthma and catarrh. An interesting case is reported from Calgary- in
a letter from Creighton S. Thompson,
who says:
"Nothing too strong can be said
for Catarrhozone. I suffered four
ycars from asthma in a way that
would beggar description. I went
through everything that man could
suffer; I was told of Catarrhozone
by a clerk in Findlay's drug store and
purchased a dollar package. F, It was
worth hundreds lo mc in a week, and
I place a priceless value on the benefit I havc since derived. I strongly
urge evcry sufferer to use Catarrhozone for Asthma, Bronchitis and Catarrh."

Canada's Task in 1920
The world can get along without
many things which arc, however, in
general usc, but it cannot get along
without food, and particularly thosc
kinds of food which Canada is specially adapted to, produce; namely,
wheal, meats, butler and cheese. Thc
world needs food today just as badly
as il did during the stern days of war,
and Canada is pre-eminently in a position to supply that need. Hundreds
of thousands of people in Europe arc
still existing on thc ragged edge of
starvation, and owing to the ravages
of war thej' arc not in a position to
produce at home thc food ihey must
have in order^to sustain lifc.
During the war, millions of people
in liurope tasted thc quality of o'ur
Canadian foodstuffs wiio had never
even seen them, and possibly had
never heard of thcm, before. Even
if thcy were not in the dire straits
in which thcy now find themselves
they would relish the obtaining of
our Canadian products in large quantities, and both as- individuals and
governments the nations of Europe
arc prepared lo take all thc food products of Canada which wc can produce and thcy have it in their power
to pay for.
Let it be repeated and emphasized
-���the world .needs  food and  Canada
is in a position to produce it and get
the  world's best price  for it
Under these, circumstances, surely
the lesson for .Canada, and the people
of Canada, is plain. It is to develop
the food producing .capacity of this
- Dominion -to the highest degree.
During thc .war greater production
was urged and undertaken by our people as a work of patriotism, as an cs-
scntial war-winning work. At one
timc wc came perilously close to losing the war for want of food, but
the people of Canada, the United
Statcs and Britain rallied lo the call
of greater production and saved the
situation. By winning the war we
saved civilization. But civilization is
still in danger, because a hungry people arc always ripe for revolution and
the acceptance of all thc wild theories
of the Bolshevist and anarchist.
The call of patriotism is, therefore,
still insistent that the people of Canada should in this ncw year devote
their energies to greater production,
no waste, simpler living. Thc practice of these policies and virtues is
essential, not only to safeguard thc
welfare of the world, but also_to remedy thc evils in our own land rcsult-
'injfTForii the "excessively high "cost of
"But there is another aspect, a purely-business onc, to this question of
greater food production. Our Canadian boys paid with their lives and
tlicir maimed bodies and broken
health for the freedom wc enjoy -today, but there is a money obligation
for us-lo meet for that freedom, and
it is as bad to bc a slacker in peace
as in war. The national debt of Canada lias increased enormously because
of llic war, but if everyone gets busy
on production it will not bc an intolerable burden.
As Dr. James W. Robertson recently said in an address at Winnipeg,
thc war has demonstrated to us the
winning power of a great idea, tlie
idea that <?j.ir cause was a righteous
onc and must succeed, so that the
Freedom of thc world might be safeguarded. What is needed now, he
declared, is a great idea of the obligation to supply thc-world with food
,.m ap-
..ccion.   The man
.ii   his   energies   in. the.
wo.  production will net only be
doing a patriotic work, and rendering
efficient service to Canada and to all
mankind, but he will add enormously
to the wealth and financial strength
of Canada as a nation,.and to his own
prosperity as an  individual.   \
Prices may not, probably .will not,
remain   at  their  present   abnormally
high level, but inJyiew of the present
world shortagevof food and enormous
demand   from ''"'Europe,'-' it. will ��� be   a
long time, if ever, before prices" will
drop  to  their.'. pre-war level.    Before
thc  war farmers   were   not    getting
what  thcy' earned, but in  the  future,
they must secure  such a return ...giid |
thcy  can  be assured  of  it  this  year'
and   in   the   immediate   future   at   all,
events. "::
The. outlook for Canada is might
if our people turn with a will and devote their energies to greater production. Wc-havc 6,000,000 more acres
of-land ready for cultivation than before the war, our men arc home again
wc havc learned new and heller methods, our country aiid its national services   escaped   the   destruction   which

Expressed   His .; Appreciation  of the
Cordfality With Which He
Was Entertained
Sir Edward E. Cooper, Lord Mayor
of London, on behalf of the city, formally welcomed tire Prince of Wales
home, after the Prince's visit to Canada and the'United States. The ceremonies took place in the Guildhall,
in the presence of a representative
gathering, including Premier Lloyd
George, former Premier Herbert H.
Asquith, Sir George H. Perley, High
Commissioner for Canada; Lord Morris, United'States Ambassador Davis,
and Consul-General Skinner.
Thc Prince, replying to the Lord
Mayor's address, said the warmth of
the welcome he first experienced in
Newfoundland followed hiin through
his travels in North America. He
said he greatly enjoyed his first visit
to Canada and the United States,
where he was accorded the hospitality for which thosc countries arc
famous, and expressed his appreciation of the cordiality with whicli he
was entertained.
Referring to thc United Suites, the
Prince said hc was struck by the fact
that thc lifc and politics of "lhat
great country closely resembled our
own." Hc declared the war had put
an end to thc feeling which prevailed
in somc quarters lhat Great Britain
was, losing vitality as a nation.
"Our duly now," the Prince continued, "is~to work together, adjusting
the social, economic and industrial
problems which cannot bc solved by
hatred, but by common sense and
goodwill. It is up to us to show the
way to-the other nations of the world
how to overcome difficulties. I feel
sure we will show thcm thc way."

over thc Junjaub, thc large province
in the northwest corner of our Indian

thc Koh-i-Nor was handed over to
Queen Victoria and placed in, the

Scotland's First Pipe Organ
Is Now the Property of the Glasgow
Thc current appreciations of James
Watt, inventor of the steam engine,
have not, so far as wc have seen,
called forth any protest from the
Wee Frees.
Vet Watt was responsible for the
first pipe organ built in Scotland, and
round it raged one of thc fiercest
controversies in the history of the
movement against instrumental music in  thc Scottish Church.
The story of the organ itself was
told -fully when thc instrument was
given a ycar ago to the Glasgow Corporation. It was built by Watt in his
house in High street in 1762, and in
1807 found its way into .St. Andrew's
church, Glasgow. On hearing that
tlie organ was to be played during divine service, the Lord Provost of the
day wrote to Dr.' Ritchie, minister of
thc church, and an enthusiastic fiddler, "begging to know of him if such
was really the case," and adding that,
if so, he would consider it his* duty
to enter a solemn protest against him
and the congregation for all damages
which might bc thc consequence. Dr.
Ritchie was also held personally responsible for "any breach of the'peace
which might possibly bc occasioned
by lhe innovation-he had. attempted
to introduce."

The heart can't stand the stress

A Saskatchewan Invention
Threshing Machine For Removing
Seed From Flax' Straw
A ncw machine which will in all
probability revolutionize thc flax-
growing and linen industry in Canada has just been completed by a
Saskatoon Iron Works. This machine was designed by F. W. Van Allen
and is to be shipped to the Dominion
Experimental Farm at Ottawa, Ontario. It is a threshing machine for
removing seed froni flax straw which
is to be used in fibre mills. For this
purpose it is essential that thc straw'
be kept straight, even and unbroken.
In the operation of the ncw machine
the bundles of flax arc opened and
fed into thc dcsccdcr, which threshes
the heads thoroughly without injury
to thc straw, and delivers the seed
well cleaned, and sends the chaff to
a bagger, this having'value as a stock
feed. Thc straw is kept parallel during the whole operation -and delivered, aftcr being threshed, into small
bundles or sheaves ready for the processes of "retting" and "scutching."

Accoiding to an official of onc of
thc ncw companies, there is a shoit-

east and thc open country on tbe
prairies. The volume is beautified
���with pictures of a large number of
species in  their natural colors.
The author, P. A. Faverner, says
that the object of the publication is
to stimulate interest, both aesthetic
and practical, in the study of Canadian birds, and to suggest the sentimental, scientific and economic value
of such study; to assist in the identification of native species; and to furnish the economist with a ready
means of determining bird friend
from bird foe.
He tells how to attract birds by
guaranteeing for them protection
against injury and by supplying food
in the winter time. The'migrating of
birds in the spring and fall he attribute's partly to the waxing and waning of -the food supply, but he says
there are probably other causes not
yet understood.
