The Back Yard
Mining News
The, Providence mine, Greenwood, is being put in shape to - resume operations.
Forty per cent lees ore was produced in the Rossland mines in
1920 than in 1919.
Ore receipts at the Trail smelter
for the week ending April 14 were
8,450 tons, all from properties of
the Consolidated Mining & Smelting company of Canada. The receipts for the year to the above
date are 118,061 tons.
According to a Juneau report,
thousands ol tons of gravel soon
will bury what remains of the
town of Bonanza, Y. T., known in
tbe Alaska stampede days of '98 as"
Grand Forks. Pioneers say Grand
Forks at one time was the metropolis of a rich mining district and
that thousands of dollars from the
creeks went across the bars and
counters of the town's saloons,
stores and hotels. A hydraulic
plant, which is soon to be worked
on the one-time placer creeks near
the abandoned towu, will poor it-
gravel onto the site.
~Many back yards are abomina
tions to the eye and nose.' One
finds in them all sorts of litter
from an oyster can,to-old boots.
Here the slops of the kitchen ' are
poured to increase odors which
ought to warn every thoughtful
person of the malarial influence
breeding there, to break out eventually in fevers or diptheria. If
any member of the family dies
from one of these diseases, his
death is probably lamented aB a
''mysterious dispensation of Providence," but the minister would
say, if he were to visit the back
yard, that death was caused solely
by a violation of hygenic laws. A
very strong argument against dirty
back yards is the spirit of deception _which is apt _to_ foster in the
young members of the family, for
it is a constant deceit to present a
clean and attractive front yard to
the gaze of the passers, while the
back yard is not fit to be seen.
Children should be taught to be
clean for the sake of cleanliness
and not because outsiders crifcicixe
them. Do not allow anything to
be thrown about. Have drains
made to convey all slops entirely
away from the house. Make, good
walks and let the ground have a
fine covering of grass not weeds.
Put up etrong supporters , for the
clothes line. Keep the fence in
repair and plant currant bushes
near it. Set vines about the refuse
barrel and train them over it until
it is hidden. If you have a receptacle for ashes, let it be something
which can be closed .and not a row
of old barrels - to offend the eye,
and give out a cloud of ashes every
time the wind blows. Make it a
rula to have the back yard at all
times as clean as the front one. -
Either the electrical installation
or the oil flotation system was responsible for the disastrous fire at
Britannia Mines recently, stated J.
A. Thomas, provincial fire protection officer, after conducting an enV
quiry into thfe origin of the con-_
flagration. Whether one or both
of these was responsible can only
be told after a careful analysis of
the technical evidence,- he said,
and this was been undertaken.
Mr. Thomas' was assisted at the
enquiry by H. L. Taylor, assistant
electrical inspector for the province. That the estimate of $1,-
000,000 damage was about right,
was Mr. Thomas' statement to a
reporter. Fully seven hundred
men had been thrown ont - of em-,,
pioyment and the entire plant was
shut down. Only a few men engaged on development ��� work were
retained, he said. Rehabilitation
could becompleted by next January or February, officials told Mr.
Thomas, if^ the_insurance adjustments are made promptly.

V Work of The
Red Cross
Giving  Medical  Attention to  Those
Who Live in Remote Districts.
A Red Cross worker in one of the
primitive sections of the west made a
discovery last summer. She visited
a sawmill camp and, while there, discovered two men, one of who had
chopped half his foot oil with his axe
and was unable to get any treatment
for it.- The other had suffered a kick'
in the chin from a mule and the jaw
hone was broken. He was unable to
get thc bone set. Both travelled 30
miles to a place where they hoped to
find a doctor and they travelled in
vain. When they arrived there they
were all in. They were put to bed
and remained there until, as in thc
case of animals, their hurts healed and
they were able to go back to their
work. Thc net result of their failure
to receive attention at the proper
time, or, indeed, at any time, is that
one will limp badly for life and the
other will have a terribly disfigured
The Red Cross, organized for peace,
will, by its guidance and expert advice, make it possible for all such far
away communities to have something
like adequate medical and nursing attention by equipping hospitals and
nurses' quarters and providing suitable surgical and medical supplies for
the treatment of all such and similar
cases, whether of accident, disease or
what not.
Not only that, but the Red Cross
aims to give lessons in first aid to thc
sick and injured and to teach people
���ftho, by reason of the nature of thcir
occupations, must live far from medical and nursing aid, just what they
should do to aid sufferers who come
within the zone of thcir influence.
Thc Red Cross, it is realized, is
seeded now more than at any other
time in the history of the country,
and it is earnestly hoped by those
who are endeavoring to organize thc
humanitarian forces of ihe world
that Western Canadians to the very
last man and woman, boy and girl,
will join thc Red Cross when .the
campaign is on from June 5 to 11.

Former Arrogant War Lord Would
Like the World to Believe That
He Was a Peacemaker.
Tlie ex-Kaiser William has not employed himself exclusively since thc
Armistice in wood-cutting at Amcron-
gcn. Hc has written a book, of
which twelve copies were sent to
twelve generals in September of last
year. It is a self-defence, but not a
reasoned argument. The ex-Kaiser
has constructed a conspectus of diplomatic events from 1884 to 1914,
comparing all the principal countries
in parallel columns, and the inference
which hc would like the reader to
draw is that hc was always thc peacemaker���he says hc even had a project
for a League of Nations which' he
thinks was a better one than Mr. Wilson's���and that England was thc leader of a conspiracy to hem Germany in.
It is an old story, but the ex-Kaiser
has not got it reasonably complete.
He ought at least to have added another column with his own name at
thc top and to Have mentioned, with
thc appropriate dates, those striking
speeches and threatening phrases
which from time to time made Europe
fear that peace was only to bc permanently had at thc price of submission to his will. Either he docs not,
even now, realize, or hc discreetly ignores, thc effect which was produced
on an island people when, with his
restless policy and his growing fleet,
he publicly proclaimed himself "the
Admiral of., the Atlantic." Things
like .this, which helped powerfully to
produce the atmosphere that led to
thc war, are not even mentioned'by
tlie Kaiser, aiyl the book will not do
for'history,, though ,it will serve the
uses of the historian. - But-it is of
great interest as being the cx-Kaiscr's
work and as showing that' he- is impervious even to the teaching of the
war- and' thc Revolution; .in his view
the war: is' still one that was engineered 'without provocation against his innocent'self, and-lostby his own ungrateful people." .He had a narrow
mind and a-closed mind';'and-the-two

Many letters come to me asking
about crullers and doughnuts. And
if they are well-made, they are a delight even to thc most jaded palate.
Here is the modus operandi:
Fill a heavy iron pot half full of
fat, lard, vegetable oil, hard vegetable fat, or beef fat. Butter cannot be used because it burns at too
low a temperature,
you choose, enough must bc put
into the pot to make it half full.
Thc fat must then be heated until
it ceases to move. It should brown
a cube of bread to a golden brown in
sixty seconds.
Having the fat at thc right temperature is one of the secrets of success.
Fat that is too cold will soak into the
material to bc fried. Thus wc not
only lose the fat, but we make thc
product more difficult to digest. When
one is through with thc fat, it should
bc strained through several thicknesses of cheesecloth. If you strain
real hot fat through a metal strainer,
of our raw materials at home instead
of sending them out. Sawlogs, pulp-
wood, ore and various other commodities should be manufactured by
ourselves. In other words, we
should build up our basic industries
and not spoon-feed exotic industries.

Frightened Natives Hide in Timber

There are even yet in remote parts
of thc world people who never even
heard of an aeroplane. Some of those
people live in thc little Nicaraguan
village of Gigantc, where thc naval
plane NC-6 was forced down by a
hurricane while on its flight from San
Diego, Cal., to Panama, along with
about a dozen other planes, in January.
They thought the NC-6 was a huge
bird, an albatross, which had come in

who had offended it and they hid in
thc woods for several hours.

when immigration was -flowing-'into this country at an unprecedented rate
and the vacant lands of the Dominion were being brought under cultivation. . Those were the years when, with the incoming of those pioneer settlers, our cities, towns and villages grew-apace; our railways .were busy and
constructing new branch lines as feeders; our manufacturers were constructing larger-factory biddings and employing many more workers,'and
activity was manifest in. the development of natural resources of all kinds.
With the falling off in immigration, and with large national'obligations
incurred fortransportation and other services which were provided to'mcet
- the expected continuance .of thc influx of new settlers,-the slump came.
Then the war put a stop to all immigration for over five years,while at the
same time it took its toll of millions of human lives.- -
��� The opportunity again presents itself to scr���ure a large volume :of immigration to Canada,:and immigrants of the right type, too. ��� ' Sound national policy demands that full advantage be taken of the opportunity.. If
there ever was a time'when Canada needed new people to assist'in the development of our great resources, it Is now.      Imringration should .be en-
- couraged, and there should be no trouble in selecting and eliminating the
_._small_percentage of undesirables at the pqrt^ of; embarkation      The- great
majority pf immigrants come to .Canada to better-thcir condition, and have
a fairly, clear idea in mind of what they are going to do.     They should be
cncouiaged to come, and a hclping*-hand_and all reasonablcassistance and a
.. warm welcome extended on thcir arrival.'.

"My boy," writes aV white-haired mother to her son, a
busy man in a distant town, "write home often. You do
not realize what your letters are to me,- and.how long it is
between them." "No, he liad not realized it;.and unhappily there are many absent sons and daughters who need a
similar reminder. They would be indigent as the suggestion of waning filial devotion, but in the stress of business,
in the society of new friends, in the happiness of a new
home circle, how rarely they spared the hour for a good
long letter to the aging mother in the old home���the 'loving mother whose heart, aches, as the; passing' days fail to
bring the longed for letter -is one of the most pathetic
tragedies of old age. The decline" of the letter writing
habit of an earlier generation has often been deplored, but
this feature of the decline can���neither be excused or defended. ��� The post card substitute forletters is little less
than a. mockery when. the cards? are sent to the mother
who wants, rind should have so much more than that.
As youth lives iu and for the future, so does old age always look back over thc slope as it uears the summit.
The parent is wrapped up in the son.and daughter; but as
the son grows to manhood and the daughter to womanhood, they are absorbed in the plans and the process of
building the structure of the coming year." Such is.the
law of life 'and the basis of all process, but it is a pitiful
thing when the sou and daughter fail'to.keep in mind.their
obligations to the loyalty and' love' of their parents.
Blessed are the absent ones who write long and frequent
letters to the old home. Soon, they cannot know how
soon the precious privilege will no longer be theirs.

Good breeding, like charity, should begin at home.
The day is past when children used to rise when their
parents entered the .room where they were and stand until
they had received permission to sit. But the mistake is
now made usually in the other direction in allowing too
small boys and girls too "much license to disturb the. peace
of the household. We think the best way to train children in courtesy'Avould be to observe toward them a scrupulous politeness. We would go. so far as to say that we
should make it as much a point to listen to children with-
ouHnterrupting them ancl to answer, them sincerely and
respectfully as if they .were grown up. And, indeed,
many, of their wise, quaiut: sayings are far better worth,
listening .to than .the/stereotyped,"'comin'ouplaces of the
moruing callers. Of-course, to allow uninterrupted chat-
ter would be . surrender, the repose ;of the "household, but
it is very- easy, if children are -themselves ��� scrupulously
respected,, to. teach them in turn scrupulously to respect

^L  TC LOA.T is not a periodic- ������
r    al.    It is a book con--T
taining 86 illustrations all
told, and is filled with
sketches and stories of
western life. It tells how
a gambler cashed in after
the flush days of Sandon ;
how it rained in New Denver long after Noah was
dead; how a parson took a
drink at Bear Lake in
early days; "how "justice
was dealt in Kaslo in '93;
how the saloon man out-
prayed the women in Kalamazoo, and graphically depicts the roamings of a
western editor among the
tender-feet in the cent belt.
It contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silyer King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens
of articles too numerous
to mention. Send for one
