Wear A Poppy ;   ���
Since the conclusion of the Greal
War there-has been a growing sentiment among the peoples of the
victorious nations allied in the conflict, to recognize by Borne outwards expression their great reverence for the Heroic Dead who
made victory and peace possible,
and their respect for the men who
fought and lived to return to their
On the anniversary of Armistice
Day in 1919 the children of the devastated   areas   of   Flanders  and
France gave expression to this sentiment by decoratiing the soldiers'
graves near their homes with garlands of   the   red poppies which
grow in  profusion in their   land.
They also wore  the  poppy   as a
memorial flower.   The idea, 'first
conceived in   the childish minds,
has gained favor all   over France
and other countries of the Allied
nations.     United   States,--  Great
Britain,   Australia, New Zealand,
and other countries have adopted
the poppy as  a memorial flower
for Armistice Day.
Canada has adopted this beautiful custom and the Great War
Veterans Association of Canada
has arranged with the French
Children's League to distribute
just prior to Armistice Day, replicas of the Flanders poppy, which
the orphan children of France
have made.
The Boundary branch of the G.

Mining News
The Castor Fraction aud the
Highland Chief, of Beaverdell,
made a trial shipment of two tons
each to the Trail smelter during
the week ending Oct. 7th.
Copper has advanced to 13 cents
a pound, and in this rise copper
concerns are inclined to visualize a
return of the copper market to
somewhere near normal, declares
Valentine- Quirin, comptroller of
the Granby Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Company," in Vancouver.
A large copper smelting company
in Anaconda, Mont., is experimenting with copper shingles to see jf
they can be made at a low enough
cost to warrant putting them on
the market. If .successful this will
help to reduce the copper Biirplus
and make a new demand for the
red metal.
Dr. J. A. Bancroft, assistant
general manager for the Granby
Oonsolidated at Anyox, who arrived in Vancouver from the north
on Sunday, says that conditions in
the big copper camp are-excellent,
full shifts are at work, and conditions are generally of a satisfactory
nature with the rising tendency of
the copper market.
Glenville A. Collins Engineers,
Ltd., of Vancouver, have taken s
lease and bond on the Sally mine,

The new company plans extensive
development with modern machinery.
It is reported that the bond is
for ��150,000 and a 1000-foot tunnel
will be driven. The Sally mine is
situated on Wallace Mountain
west of Greenwood.

European Photoplay
Has 2000 in Cast
Differentiating from the American production in many phases,
"Gypsy Blood," the screen version
of the original French "Carmen,"
starring Pola Negri, which will be
shown at the Greenwood Theatre
on Saturday, Oct. 22, brings home
to the lovers of photodrama effects
heretofore lacking in even the -_
"super-productions" of- American
studios. "Gypsy Blood" is au
absorbing and spectacular European prod uction -- that .consumed a
year in the making and in which
more than 2000 people take part. ,
Features tbat stand out in emphatic manner are the street scenesk
of Seville and the battle with tha
gypsies in which each person
"lives" their part; camera angles
that lend depth to the characters;
costuming perfect to the smallest
detail; splendor and faithfulness of
patience in obtaining a finesse
and artistry, notable in emotional
scenes particularly.

Chinese Prii-^e
Airaid Of Auto
Curtailing Waste
Great Revenue Derived From Things
Formerly Thrown Away.
One of the points which distinguishes an age of progress from an
age of retrogression is the curtailment of waste. In ancient days when
natural resources were undeveloped,
only the few were wealthy. These
few were able to take what they
wanted from the wealth of the world
and waste the rest. As a result, the
majority of the earth's population
was in direct poverty.
Today a great part of The revenue
of industrial concerns is derived from
products which a few years ago were
thrown away. Nearly every big
manufacturing plant employs trained
chemists -to test the value and uses
of by-products.
One example of this, tendency to-,
wards economy is the recent suggestion of a Standard Oil expert who
proposes that New''York City collect
the waste oil floating on the waters
of its harbor and use it for fuel in
furnaces or as road oil. This suggestion is, of course, applicable in any
labor city. ��
This is, however, just one instance
of possible economy.
The same principle may be applied,
on a lesser scale, in every home.
Some people complain that housekeeping expenses are too great to be
met. There is only one way of remedying this condition, ^and that is
to curtail waste. The wife who "can
find a palatable use for meat scraps
is performing, just as great a service
.���to the'state as the'chemist who dis-.
covers nevuses for coal-tar products,
or the nian who retrieves- oil from
harbors.- - For each home is a replica,
of; tlie state and unless,   homes    arc
-prosperious the nation-cannot prosper,
.Jf, as -the maxim-makers says',.a
penny saved-is a penny gained,.,the
.housewife or the chemist, who prevent
waste aro. just as great benefactors as
the man who grows two blades of
wheat where one grew before..���The
Vancouver Suri."     ' ,    .
prices were at their peak, the cost of
| labor and supplies had increased to
j such an enormous extent ihat only
[ rich or very easily-operated gold
' mines could stand the strain. The
fact was that, under conditions at
the average gold mine, the miner
could not produce sufficient gold to
pay his wage, and the inevitable result was that the mines had to close.
British Columbia was better off than
many other places. In parts of California, which for many years had been
the leading gold-producing state of
thc Union, the industry of gold mining almost creased. Now, however,
conditions gradually are approaching
normal again, and capitalists are looking for gold mines, because they promise to be the most profitable class of
mining jn Ihe immediate future.���

The ''Light House"
Chicago Policeman Was a Modern
Sherlock Holmes.
There are twenty-eight languages
spoken in Chicago (not counting golf
and baseball) and the policemen know
ail of them, writes' a correspondent.
A nice old lady who seemed very little and very much lost, blocked the
traffic on State and Madison Streets
the other day and poured her troubles
into the sympathetic ear of the crossing policeman.
"Vare is dere light house, please?"
she inquired.
"Want to' pay your gas bill, lady?"
said the understanding officer.
"Jas," she smiled.
"Michigan Avenue, at Adams Street,
two blocks south, and two blocks
east," said he, indicating the way and
placing her safely on the curb.
"You're a wonder," said a man, who
happened to be a bystander.   "
"Easy," said the policeman. "The
corner of her gas bill was sticking out
of her bag," and he plunged back into
the traffic -for more problems'"to solve.
Gas Attacks
Target Could Be Hit With Disastrous
The hulk of the defunct battleship
Alabama, with a crew of dummies,
was completely smothered under an
aerial gas bomb attack in Chesapeake
Bay. ���>, The test was a little unfair
to the battleship, as a number of the
bombs were dropped from an altitude
of but 500 feet. It was brought out
effectively, however, that once a target could be hit. the results would be
disastrous for those upon ii. Phosphorus bombs could envelop a ship
in smoke and let aircraft play above
it as they pleased, while tear gas
bombs could incapacitate thc crew.
These facts indicate that the airplane
will be able to protect itself to a great
extent as well as to indict punishment upon its sea-going adversaries.
It leaves sea craft with no defense except airplanes of their own.���New

Refused a Ride.
An  automobile  party  drove  up  in

Chinese province a few   weeks    ago
and s.ent word in to tlie ruling prince
that they would like to take him out!

Nothing Else Will Give Better Results
In Business.

The motor vehicle industry, while

When Autocracy Ruled
Louis XVI. Had Novel Way of Settling
Speaking of strikes, says an English correspondent, how many of us
remember that Louis XVI. of France
once was called upon to settle a
strike. It was the drivers of public'
conveyances in Paris who .then^struck,
as a-protest against privileges which
had been accorded to a rival enterprise, in 1779; and they sent a deputation to wait on the King at Choisy.
Louis .received them at first with a
benevolent sympathy and promised
that justice should be done. But
then, having calmed them, he struck
another tone, and announced that they
would all be pilnished for "interrupting a public service and causing inconvenience lo the population of
Paris." Is there any potentate anywhere, I wonder, who would nowadays
venture to dismiss a labor deputation
with such a threat?

Eight Hour Day Too Short
Laborers in Germany Want Hours of
Work Lengthened..
Will wonder never cease. Reports
from Germany are to the effect that
laborers in Wurttemburg have objected to the eight-hour day, not because
they believe in a-14-hour week, but
because they think eight hours out of
24 constituteloo short a working day.
The reports have it that the working-
men have absolutely refused, to admit that there are any^. advantages in
the short day, and cases have occurred in which ihe employees of plants
have signed petitions to the Government protesting unanimously againsi
the limitation of the hours of industry.

Said to be Record of Historic Battle of
What is the most wonderful film in
the world? Many different answers
will be given io this question, but
undoubtedly the film produced in
Great Britain to represent the Battle
of Jutland is among the most remarkable. The pictures were composed
by photographing numerous specially
constructed "models of ships arranged
on a mimic sea. Between exposures
each ship -yvas moved* only one sixteenth of an inch, so that untold
patience had to be exercised to reproduce a completed manoeuvre. The
services of many'experts were engaged to ensure accuracy in connection
with each phase of the engagement
and the completed film forms a unique
record of an historic battle.

to bo on hand when needed. The

V'EV C. Fox, \3f the William Davies

simple one. The Danish farmer has

is bacon to-export. "We : have not
the quantity of bacon to export, because a suffcient ��� numbeiv. of hogs

" Glasgow.���British plans for trading
with Russia have been defeated it -was
declared By Sir Robert Stevenson
Home, chancellor of the exchequer, in
an address here." He said that this
was partly _th'e result of the Russian
famine and could bc attributed in"
some measure to the fact lhat Russian extremists had been "more anxious to spend' their gold in propaganda than'in buying goods."
Sir Robert disclaimed lack of sympathy for Russia, and asserted he had
tested theOoyalty of* some of his
friends by concluding the trade
agreement with the Soviet Government.     He added he was prepared .to.
defend that agreement, because he. believed the world would never recover
until Russia was again producing
Tgj-ain, and also because lie believed1,
tho \ best way to break down Bolshevism would be to penetrate Russia
with "hpnest commercial methods."
".-Nothing can be gained by sending
goods to Russia," Sir Robert went on,
"for it��is perfectly certain the Russians have "nothing, to give in "'ex-'
change. While they may have
accumulated stocks they have- no
means of transport. Sending goods
to Russia at'--present^ would mean
making gifts of them, and Great
Britain-is not in a position, today to

Government control of the main
highways would- also tend to economy /in construction cost as with
centralized control, the planning of
the work and the actual construction
can be carried qn in such a manner
as to make it possible for the contractors to bid on long,, Continuous

Bank Bandits Caught
Five Men Who Robbed Manitoba Bank,
Were Amateurs.
Winnipeg��� Five amateur bandits,
who held up-the Bank of Hochelago at
Elie, Man., about thirty miles from
here, were capture., about five and a
half miles from the scene of the robbery. They were captured by a posse
of .farmers', headed b^ A. Bherer, manager of thc bank. The amount taken
from the bank was between ?1,000.and
$1,200, all of -which was recovered.
Early reports of the"" robbery indicated that the amount. stolen would
exceed ?40,000.   ,
The captured men gave their names
as Henry B.- Quackenbush, James
Redding, Sydney L. Roberts, George
J. Adams, and Clarence W. Adams.

Train Wreck.
Lyons, Prance.���-Handcuffed in pairs
and in charge of four gendarmes, 12
French military prisoners en route for
Algeria to serve sentences ranging
from five to fifteen years, were aboard
tlie Strasbourg-Marseilles express
when it jumped the track at Les_
Echets, a few miles from here. Forty
passengers were killed and 70 injured.
None of. the prisoners were seriously hurt, but three gendarmes were
killed and another pinned under the
wreckage, lay seriously wounded.
All semblance of authority and order had disappeared. Thc .prisoners
were free but, instead of running
away, they pulled the wounded gendarme ��� out of the tangled mass of
wood and iron and laid him on the
grass. During the night they rescued
2.1 injured passengers. Then they
gave themselves up.
They have' since left for Alger
to serve their sentences, but It is
understood that the Minister of War
is studying the case, and the opinion
is expressed that, in due course, they
will be pardoned.

;        Loan In London
London.���Sir John Aird, general
manager of tlie Canadian Bank of
Commerce, has returned to London after . an extensive journey through
France, Belgium, and Germany. He
was accompanied by Charlie Cainbie,
manager of the bank of London. Interviewed by the Canadian Press representative, Sir John told of some of
the impressions he had gathered from
his lour. The one outstanding fact
was that everybody on the continent
was working hard and there certainly
was no unemployment al the present
In Germany lhe*.people are, outwardly at any rate, being well fed and
well dressed. Germany today appears
as well organized as it.was before the
war, and the traffic on the railways
and the Rhine River" is handled in a
thoroughly eflicient manner.
Germany, in fact, was living within herself and the Canadian banker
said it was impossible to think that
she would become bankrupt even
though the mark might sink to a figure meaning its practical obliteration.
j Moreover, the ^Germans are producing
���ia a class of goods cheaper than the
same class can be produced in Great
Britain. Germany is selling these
goods to European countries and
quite extensively to Russia, Mexico
and South' American States. From
Russia, Germany has obtained gold
or foreign exchange in payment for
ihese goods.
"A great deal of criticism," Sir John
said, "is levelled at exchange rales
but nobody has as yet succeeded in
submitting a practical remedy. As
far as I can prophesy, the present condition of affairs is likely to continue
for some time to come, but it may be
that coming conferences at Washington will perhaps indirectly ^produce a
solution of the present difficulties.

-National Crisis
"My appeal is to the whole people; to
every man and woman who nuants to do
right by this country; to everyone <who
breathes the spirit of our fathers who
founded this British Dominion."
THE Election to be held December 6th
will be the most momentous in
Canadian history; for as men and
women vote will depend the economic
stability, the political stability and,
indeed, the national stability of this
Today we find group striving against group,
class against class, the industrial and financial
structure of the country assailed by false and
unsound doctrines and theories, while our
great neighbour to the.-south has adopted a
trade exclusion policy directed against Canada's
vast agricultural interests.
The currencies of nearly every country in the world
are depreciated. The Canadian dollar in the United
States is subject to a heavy discount causing- a loss
of over one hundred million dollars in exchange
Europe is overwhelmed with war debts���unemployment is acute ��� and the restoration to pre-war
conditions is slow. .
While Canada is in a much more favorable condition
than many countries, yet there is evidence of stagnation, instability, unemployment and lack of confidence,
Taxes are heavy because of the country's efforts in
the Great War, but have become burdensome on
account of the misconceived policies and blunders
of; Governments that directed Canada's affairs prior
to 1911.
These conditions are largely the direct aftermath of
the war, but they must be dealt with fearlessly and
.Constructively. This is no time to consider experimental changes, or the theories of visionaries.
This is no time for Crerar and his Free Trade policy.
This is no time for King and.his wobbling "charted"
policies, varying with each provincial boundary.
It is the time" to cling to orderly, stable Government
in .the interest of all the people; to.be guided by the
���experience of the"past, proceeding^upon lines .that,
have been proven sound.
It is the time to place the destinies of Canada again
in the hands of a Government led by a sane, coura--
geous, Canadian who has. safely brought the country
.through the trying years pf reconstruction, and upon--
whom we .can rely to retain and- initiate policies 'in _
the interest, not of a group ^OEielass but ^of all the
people.   , .."

In all kinds of work, good results require good implements kept In good
condition. If the right sort of implement is important to an individual
workman, eflicient tools for industry and commerce are a necessity.
Telephone service-is one of the tools of industry and commerce in most
common use and which much depends. To transmit the vibrations of the
human voice from any point to any point demands and expensive mechanism of the highest order of scientific precision and an efficient organization.
It is.our aim to have the telephone, with the co-operation of the public,
the most dependable tool of industry.
The  Moderation  League's
attitude on the public demand for
beer by the glass
'pHE Moderation League has been asked to endorse several -
petitions which are at present being circulated asking for'
toe sale of beer by the glass.
The consensus of opinion of the League, taken from its organizations throughout the province, has been and is in favor
of the sale of beer by the glass under reasonable restrictions
as being conducive to moderation.    Prior to the passing of       '
the present Act the league forwarded  to the  Legislature a-
resolution asking:
That the commission be given power to pro- -   -
vide for the serving of beer by the glass dur- '
ing limited hours in approved establishments
where meals are served. Such privilege to
be subject to cancellation in any locality at
. the discretion of the commission. No beer
to be sold over a bar."
Since the passage of the Act public opinion has strongly substantiated the League's resolution, and it has been suggested
^     that the League should urge the matter on the members of   ���
the Legislature at the present session.
This the executive of the League is prepared to do.- It invites the co-operation of all in favor of a moderate law and
holds itself ready to assist in the presentation to the Government of petitions and the resolutions of organizations which
have the above object in view. N
