Do you'know that an editor or
a reporter for a newspaper can in

persons "What is the news?" and
ninety out of a hundred will reply
"Nothing special" and yet fifty
out of that number know something that if not found in the
next paper will astonish, them
greatly and disappoint them more
and perhaps make them madder
than hornets. Dont be afraid to
let the newspaper man know it.

There are events occurring in
every community which, if reported in a local paper, would create
a commotion little dreamed of.
What to report and what not to
report often perplexes the editor.
He is often accused of cowardice
and favoritism, when all the time
he is looking toward the good reputation of the town where his
lot is cast. The local editor from
necessity almost constantly finds
himself between two fires, and
whichever way he turns he is sure
to be unjustly treated. This is
one of the pleasures of the newspaper business.

fainted I   Who has any whiskey?"

tell it at least six quart bottles of
cemetery promoter; were eagerly
extended by passengers. The
Cheness grasped, fehe nearest one,
uncorked ife, took a "slug" ^qf
about four-fingers, and gently
handing the flask back feo the do-
nator, remarked:
"Thanks, stranger; it always
does make me sort of thirsty to see
a lady in distress."���Hot Springs

Tlie PdsleraTbn the Walls
In connection with the campaign
being raised in many parts of Canada against bill board lithograph
advertising, the Toronto Telegram
has the following remarks to make,
which are very much to the point:
'^Lithographed representatives of
the undraped or scantily draped
human figure are allowed to remain on the wall if used as a
means of inciting people to buy
winter undergarments.
"Similar studies in nudity and
semi-nudity are chased off the
walls on which they have been
pasted as a means of inducing people to buy theatre tickets.
"Why should the manufacturer
of underwear be privileged to advertise his products with so much
pictorial splendor of anatomical detail? The censorship that has
pruned the luxuriance out of
theatrical posters has yet a work to
do on the business lithographs
that still adorn the outer walls."
An Arkansas man has been shot
while at prayer. Arkansas can ill
afford to spare any of her praying
men.

GREENWOOD, JULY 16, 1914.
It is worry and not work,
that kills.
This   is the   month   of
glorious days.
If  you are grouchy   eat
eggs four times a day.
It is  better for a young
man to lose his first bet.
It will not be necessary to
pack a bottle when you go
back to Ontario.
It is about time some of
the coast papers learned the
way to spell Kaslo.
This is a life of restless
change. Your friend today
may be your enemy tomorrow,
It is more dangerous to
work in some mines, than it
is to fight in the Mexican
war.
What shall it profit a
man if he gains the whole
world, and does not get ��� his
job printing in his own
town.
An attempt was made to
rob a bank in Kaslo recently.
There was a big bank robbery there 21 years ago
when John M. Burke held up
all his depositors.
There is a great mingling
this week in Nelson of the
veterans who packed their
blankets into the country,
and the tenderfoot who rode
in on the cushions.
Thinking Themes
Sometimes it seems as if a greater part of all the good and evil we
do is done unconsciously.
What we do of set purpose does
not, as often as not, bring the results we had hoped. A man builds
a new house, and his wife dies in
ife the first month. He gives his
boy fehe best college training and
the youngster joins a circus troup:
or he casts him out as a good-for-
nothing and the rascal becomes a
bishop. You give a pitiable tramp
a dollar and he goes and gets drunk
wifeh ife; you refuse him and in desperation he goes to the Salvation
Army meeting and gets converted.
A man who never gives a cent to
charity or church carries on a huge
business and gives employment to
a thousand men, making their
lives bright and content; while-
well, you know the other kind of
man.
So what is one to do?
Probably the best way is to do
what you can, according to your
lights, and pray the good lord to
let as little barm come of it as possible.
"The bee," says J, A. Spencer,
"builds her cell and gathers honey
to fill it, but all unconsciously, she
is the agent of another service
bearing fehe pollen from flower to
flower. So we, while we go about
our own business, are unconsciously the ministers of others, fertilizing them if we are fortunate,
blighting them if we are not.���Dr.
Frank Crane.
Oil in Mexico
One of the safest places
in the world is in a Mexican
battle. In one battle in that
country that lasted five days
only 20 were killed, and no
doubt these fatalities were
accidents,
In Mexico when Huerta
gets shaved he stands up,
and keeps a pistol in his
hand, to prevent the barber
from cutting his throat.
The barber is dumb during
the operation. Huerta has
probably never heard of a
safety razor.
The Hindu trouble at
Vancouver may be the spark
that 1 will set aflame the
greatest war in the history
of the world. Probably the
day is not far distant, when
the British Empire and the
United States will stand side
by side, and fight the world.
The Tampico oil territory in
Mexico consists of five oil fields,
and the wells are all gushers. One
well has been flowing for 12 years.
One well when ife is not capped
will flow 185,000 barrels a day.
Some of the oil tanks hold more
than a million barrels. The Mexican oil territory is rich and great,
but has required so much money
for development that out of 89 companies operating for the lasfe 14
years only three have paid dividends. One company has invested
$38,000,000 and others more than
that amount. A company that has
only paid one dividend employs
4,000 men. Oil is 50 cents a barrel in Mexico.
A Revamped Joke
Smith and Jones were talking
one day about their business interests. Smith was an hotel man and
Jones was a manufacturer's agent.
"I say," said Jones, "however do
yon use such an enormous quantity
of peaches and pears?"
"Well," replied Smith, "we eat
what we can, and what we can't
eat we can."
"Indeed!" said the other; "we
do about the same in our business."
���' "How is that? yyy.yj-.
"We sell an order when we can
can Bell it, and when we can't sell
it we cancel it."���Montreal Herald.
Enormous Waste of Coal
"Perhaps the most serious waste
which is taken place in the Dominion at the present time in connection with its mineral resources is
presented by the mining and utilization of coal. In the first place,
in mining a coal seam, from 50 to
90 per cent of the coal is left; in
the workings for fehe purpose of
supporting the roof. Of the coal
which is taken out and burned
under boilers in the usual manner,
only about 12 per cent of fehe total
energy is developed. That is to
say, we secure for useful purposes
only about 5 per cent of the total
energy obtained in the coal contained in the area. If the coal is
burned in gas producers and the
gas so obtained used in internal
combustion engines, these, having
a higher eflieieucy, develop about
30 per cent of tho energy in the
coal actually mined, or about 12
per cent of the energy locked up
in the coal of the whole area.
This is an improvement, bub still
represents an enormous waste.
"On fehe other hand, tho coal
may be mined for the production
of coke for metallurgical purposes.
About three-fourths of the coke
produced for this purpose in North
America and all the coke made in
Western Canada is manufactured
in beehive furnaces, which yield a
relatively low percentage of coke,
while the other products of the
coal���gas, tar, ammonia, benzol,
etc. - go to waste. All these products may be saved by making the
coke in by-prodnct ovens, representing in localities where the surplus gas can be sold at a reasonable rate, a gain which is estimated
by Mr. F. E. Lucas,. manager of
the coke ovens of the Dominion
Coal Company, at S1.9S per ton of
coke made. This figure will, of
course, vary with the locality in
which the coke is produced, but it
emphasizes the great saving which
may be effected by the use of the
modern by-product oven. The tar
and ammonia obtained by this process, moreover, meet with a ready
market. The former is already
being used extensively in the Dominion for a variety of purposes���
among them as a binding material
in the manufacture of briquettes
from slack coal, thus enabling this
waste product to be successfully
utilized���while fehe ammonia is a
fertilizer of the greatest value, for
which there is great demand abroad
and for which an ever-increasing
demand will arise in Canada as the
necessity of employing improved
methods of agriculture is brought
home to our farmers.''���Dr. F. D.
Adams, before the Royal Society
of Canada.
Siberia a Rival to Canada
Wully and Sandy were regaling
themselves at a cosy little inn.
Sandy was handing out the siller,
and time went on, he began to feel

have never see ye pufetin' ye hand
in your pocket."

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED
It has long been known thafe
Siberia, on account of Boil and
suitability of climafee, is destined
to be Canada's most formidable
rival in fehe production of what is
known as "hard" wheafe. Her
competition in this field has nob
yefe made itself felfe, mainly because
the inhabitants are unprogressive
in disposition and primitive in
civilization. But the construction
of fehe Siberian Railway will gradually effect a change, and Siberia
may be expected feo contribute
yearly an increasing amount to the
world's supply of highly glutenized
flour. One effect will be to lessen
the use of "soft" wheat, which
will then take the place of tho
starchy foods like potatoes, rice,
and Indian corn.
There will be abundance of room
for both Siberia and Canada in the
world's "hard" wheafe market for a
long time to come, seeing that fchey
axe the only countries which can
gro w large quantities of this great
cereal. Ife may be otherwise with
fehe world's butter market, if Cold-
sborage Commissioner Euddick is
nob astray in his prognostication.
He informed the Western Dairymen's Convention the other day
that much of Siberia is well suibed
to live stock farming, and that bhe
exportation of butter from Russia
is now second only to that from
Denmark and is rapidly increasing.
Siberian competition has nofe been
severe so far because the people
are extremely poor and they live
in primitive surroundings, but here
again the situation has been materially changed by the construction
of the Siberian Railway, which,
wifeh the help of navigable streams,
has opened up an enormous area
of habitable country.
More important still, the. Eus-
sian people will not always be
primitive in their modes of life and
their industrial methods. Par-
liameiitary government has come
among them to stay, and as political institutions develop they will
become increasingly democratic in
character. Ife may be taken for
granted that Russian statesmen
will not neglect the great agricultural interest. Siberia may yet
surprise the world, and Canadian
dairymen would meanwhile do well
to act on the advice given them by
Commissioner Euddick, to keep on
the very best they can in producing butter under their more favorable conditions. This is the most
effective way to meet the competition of Europe in either wheat or
butter.���Toronto Globe.
Cows That Wear Well
One of tbe many advantages
reaped from systematic cow testing is fehe fact that it not only detects cows of indifferent value
(saving dairymen the burden of
providing for worthless cows, in-
stead of their having good cows to
support them) but also it has frequently discovered valuable cows.
For instance, a farmer at Ennis-
more, Ontario, had a small, undersized 'native' cow which he intended to sell, not placing much value
on her. But cow testing showed
that she is one of the best in the
herd both for milk and fat production. Don't sacrifice good
cows.
This recalls another cow at
Avers Cliff, Quebec, bought at auction for $28.00 because no one
knew her value. Indeed she was
put in here with three others as
the four poorest in the herd of the
man who was selling out. The
present owner believes in cow testing, and has refused $100.00 for
her; she gave 322 pounds of fat in
seven months.
The men who have built up
herds that average 8,000 or 9,000
pounds of milk per cow are just
those men who know, through having proved ife, that cow testing
pays. Your cows may be like
fancy china, of very fine appearance, but they may not wear well.
But fehe tested cows, that do produce, that do wear well, may bring
you in sixty or seventy dollars
each during the seven months' factory season.���C. F. W.

The man and woman who try to make their home the
most interesting spot on earth for each other, and for
their friends and those who are near and dear to them,
have but occasional use for the club. It is to them, like
the theatre, a pleasant place to enter now and then but
not a spot to dwell in,

The world is full of women who can amuse the ordinary
man. Can sing, dance or recite for him; can paint, write
or decorate in a manner most pleasing, but the poor man
often goes begging for a woman who can sew on buttons
or mend his clothes; who can cook his food with economy
and flavor it to his taste.

The children whose horizon is a brick wall, who must
play on cobble stones and go swimming in the canal and be
ideal citizens, shall we of holier memories sit in judgement upon them? Shall we not remember the weight

this beautiful country of ours?

Some courage is needed to be natural and a higher kind
of courage, too, than that which marches behind the safe
end of a gun. The moral courage which is not intimidated
by appearance nor cowed by custom is a finer article than
the daring of the speculator, or the steady nerve of >the
soldier in physical peril. It takes bravery of the best
stamp to be true to oneself. '��

Would that our charities could strike deeper, seek to
humanize as well as feed, encourage and reanimate as well
as clothe. We are all of us apt to gather our skirts about
us, hold our noses and avert our eyes while we hand out
our garments and our bred. Blessed be the soul that is
inspired enough to go down into the shadows and lend a
helping hand. To be very poor, and yet carry a clear
life and keep alive ambition and hope is like seeking to_.set

The school boy should really learn the lesson that the
ripest, biggest cherries are at the top and that nine out of
his fellows will be crowding for places to pick around the
base of the tree where the small, wormy fruit grows.
There is plenty of room at the top; there are plenty of
cherries growing there. The luscious fruit is ready for
the picking and ever smiles a welcome to the hustler to
climb up and take possession. The best things in life require considerable effort to get, and that is why the strong
est men and women have them.

I'll try another ten-inch ad 1M
If there be. go mark him well,
For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.

Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage bat gives him pain.

Disturb his solitude profound,

Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep

Roy McCrimmon and Ernest
Stewart have made another strike
on the Silver Standard property
which will mean a considerable
profit to themselves. The boys, aa
was announced a couple of weeks
ago, have a lease on the several
claims on the south side of Glen
mountain, and soon after they
started work they uncovered some
fine ore on the Black Prince, This
they have been working by drifting, anti already they are sorting
and sacking ore.
The past week McCrimmon
started to prospect a little on the
Canadian Queen claim. On this
vein their is a shaft, but it is full
of water, and rather than pump it
out ho started about twenty-five
feet further up the hill and within
two feet of tho surface uncovered
six or eight inches of the highest
grade of ore. It is as good aa any
that has yet been taken from the
north side of the mountain. Some
more work will be done on this
vein before any definite development is decided upon.
McCrimmon & Stewart are getting a lot of work done and in a
short time they will be in shape to
put more men on at the property
and get ready to make their first
shipment.���Hazelton Herald.
A revival in interest in mining is
reported in the Okanagan valley.
Some fine specimens of gold bearing quarts, found near Vernon,
have been brought to the Vancouver Chamber of mines. There are
occurrences lode gold northwest of
Vernon, and near Okanagan Landing to the south, also at points
along the east shore of the lake
between there and Kelowna. Kelowna men are quietly developing a
gold property on Mission creek,
having sent in a small mill. At
Penticton is a mine that has not
been worked for some years. There
are promising lode deposits at
Okanagan Falls. The old Pair-
view camp in the Similkameen district has merit though shut down
for some years, and some day modern mining will take hold of some
of these abandoned mines and successfully operate them. While the
values are low the ore bodies are
large, and ores of less value are
economically mined elsewhere today. Then there are coal deposits
at Short's Creek, on the west side
of the lake, and these are believed
by engineers to be co-related to the
Nicola field. At White Lake there
is also a deposit of coal where some
mining has been done. Tin and
platinum have been reported from
Osoyoos lake though of doubtful
economic value.
best that can be secured, and the
most up-to-date, but permanent
ore bunkers are to be erected at
Carnaby and Prince Rupert so that
the ore may be handled with the
minimnm of expense. These bunkers will be under construction in
a week or two and will be ready
by the time the first ore is ready
for shipment, which, it is estimated
will be about the first of September
Another matter which Mr. Oppenheimer is working on and which
will be of the greatest value to the
operating company, the owning
company and the entire district, is
that of freight rates. At the pre
sent time he has secured a rate on
the boats from Prince Rupert to
the Tacoma smelter of $1.50 per
ton, and he is working with the
view of getting the same ratej on
the G.T.P from Carnaby to Prince
Rupert. He stated-_that he had
every hope of being successful^ in
this, as he could give the tonnage
as soon as they started mining.
The cross-cut tunnel, which was
started a week ago, is now 100
feet or a little better,'and'the new
drills are doing good work. \This
tunnel will give them a depth of a
little over three hundred feet. As
soon as the vein is cut they will
start to take out ore and make
their first shipment.
Asked by the Herald if it was
true that the lease was to be renewed at the end of two years, Mr.
Oppenheimer emphatically denied
it. The minute this company is
through, the owing company will
be in shape, or should be, to re
sume the operation of the mine.
The property will be in good shape
and the company will have money
in the treasury, which was not the
case when the lease was given. In
addition to the main vein, or the
upper vein, there are several other
veins on the property which the
leasing company has nothing to do
with. These will no doubt prove
as good as the new one now being
developed. Mr. Oppenheimer does
not expect that his company will
be able to take out all the upper
Workings within the time of the
lease, and the owning company
will then have in good working
order a plant capable of mining for
several years.
Misuse of Coal as Fuel
J. E. Oppenheimer, president of
the Montana Continental Development Co., is spending a couple of
weeks at Rocher de Boule mine,
and he was a guest at the Northern
'hotel over the week end. To the
Herald Mr, Oppenheimer stated
that on Monday they Btarted laying the cable for the tram line from
Carnaby up the hill to connect
with the ground tram to the mine.
All work is progressing much more
favorably than heretofore.     Many
At the recent meeting of the
British Association for the Advancement of Science, one of the
subjects discussed in the chemistry
section was the utilization of coal
and its waste. There was general
agreement that most methods of
the present time involved serious
wasteful destruction of limited
supply.
Dr. Beilby referred to the low
temperature distillation of coal,
which is coked at temperatures of
400�� to 450�� C. thus furnishing
valuable products now consumed
to small purpose, while yet leaving
the most valuable part of the fuel
for its ordinary use. It was the
task of the gas works to organize
the market for this low temperature
coke. Dr. Colman called attention
to the fact that 25 per cent of the
heat units in the coal could be obtained as gas, 5 per cent as tar, and
Where Life is Cheap
In Canton I met for the second
time a talented young Swedish engineer who had crossed the Pacific
with me in search of a job, writes I
in the Chicago News. He was sanguine as to his future then; he was
in the dumps now.
He had just laid before one of
the chief officials of the place to
whom he came armed with a letter
of introduction, plaps for installing
a modern sewerage system in Canton. "Your people" he said to
the mandarin, "die off like flies
every time the plague strikes you
here. Your mortality rate to one
coming from the sanitary cities of
America and Europe, is appalling.
Let me cut it down for you and put
it on a par with that of the first
centres of the world."
Then the mandarin, so the young
engineer said, leaned back in his
chair, stared at him with a surprised an and remarked scornfully but
quietly; "Young man, why did you
come all these thousands of miles
to Canton for the sake of carrying
to us euch mad ideas? Take them
back to Sweden with you. Let us
rest in peace in China aud go our
own way undisturbed by these silly
newfangled ideas. Build modern
sewerage systems in Sweden to
your heart's content, ten in every
city for all we care. We will have
none of them in Canton."
When the engineer, crestfallen
and bewildered, asked why, the
answer was at once forthcoming;
"There are too many people living
in Canton now. We shouldn't
know what to do with more if we
had them. Our people, as it is,
are finding it hard enough to make
a living."
This mandarin's attitude sums
up in a way at once amusing and
illuminative the oriental attitude
towards life and the living.
Nothing seems 'cheaper in the
orient than life, and as a matter of
fact, little else is so cheap. When
you pass through the labyrinth of
streets that make up Canton, packed almost to suffocation with human beings, you begin to understand
why so little value is placed on life.
Your understanding of the situation grows clearer when you .realize the battlelike competition going
on here from early morning until
late at night for the few handfuls
of rice and millet that sustain the
existence of each of this swarming
mass.

Owing to his extreme youth and
timidity Tommy Jones escaped going to church the whole year round
except on Christmas Day. After
one of his annual visits, his uncle
���esked him at the dinner table if he
had been a good boy and said a
prayer in church. "Oh, yes indeed"
answered Tommy, "I said a prayer
like all the rest did before the sermon began. Want to hear it?"
"Yes, indeed. What did yon say,
replied the surprised uncle. "Now
I lay me down to sleep," began
Tommy.
The stomach of a camel is divided into four compartments, and the
walls of these are lined with large
cells, everyone of which can be
opened and closed at will by the
means of powerful muscles, explains a writer in the Presbyterian.
When a camel drinks, it drinks a
great deal. Indeed, it drinkB for
such a long time that you really
would think it never meant to
leave off. The fact is that it is
not satisfying its thirst, but it is
filling up its cistern as well. One
after another the cells in its Btom
ach are filled with the water, and
as soon as each is quite full, it is
tightly closed. Then when, a few
hours later, the animal becomes
thirsty, all that it has to do is to
open one of tho cells and allow the
water to flow out. Next day it
opens one or two more cells, and
so it goes on day after day until
the whole supply is exhaused. In
this curious way a camel can live
five or even six days without
drinking at all, and so is able to
travel quite easily through the
desert, where the wells are often
hundreds of miles apart.

The development undertaken by
the Montana Continental Development Co. is on a very large Bcale,
and Mr. Oppenheimer stated that
in purchasing the machinery and
installing the plant he always 'had
in mind the requirements of the
Rocher de Boule Copper Co. after
the lease had  expired.    His company had installed a much larger
plant all through than will be required, bnt when deep mining and
a larger tonnage is to be handled
the present plant will be able to
cope with it.
Not only is the plant the very

cent of the nitrogen in the coal is

Dr. Leasing asserted that in
England there is an annual loss of
more than 200,000. tons of .liquid
fael carried away as soot, enough
to supply the whole fuel oil demand
of the British Navy. The fael oil
recoverable from house coals by
low-temperature cooking would
amount to some 3,000,000 a year.
The whole discussion left a serious
impression of the awakening to the
limited possibilities of the coal supply.���N. E. L. A. Ealletin.
