The   possibilities  of the   small
fruit industry in Saskatchewan are
illustrated by the success of a farm'
er near Saskatoon who sold $100.00
worth of strawberries from a small
patch last -rammer.     Small fruit
grows Bplendidly in Saskatchewan,
and command a good price, as their
only competition is the imported
article.   There are indications that
farmers are beginning to give more
attention to the profits which may
be derived from .side-interests on
the farm,  such as the cultivation
of small fruits.

No Full Moon
According to Joseph Graham, of
Bathurst, for the second time since
the creation of the world themonth"
of February will be without a full
moon.
According to information' in his
possession, obtained in a copy of
Tit Bits, of the year 1891 in answer
to a question as to whether there
had evsr been a month in which
there was no full moon, an astronomer stated that in February,
1866, there had been no full moon,
and it was predicted that the phenomena would not happen again for
2,500,000 years.
According to Mr. Graham, there
will be a fuil moon on January 30
and on March 1, but none in February.
Get Busy
When the time arrives for resumption of production on a large
scale by copper and other mines
which have been forced to curtail
their output on account  of conditions brought on by the war, no
sympathy will be due those operators who have neglected to push
developments for the purpose  of
increasing   ore   reserves   and   by
making    necessary    changes     in
equiptment for handling,  treating
and marketing ore. There is every
reason to believe fehat; when business and indnstrial conditions do
revive,  the demand for the products of all, oar mines will be unprecedented.     Those   mines  that
are ready to meet the demand will
realize rich profits.

The following letter was received
by a friend in the east fromH.
Edward McCutcheon, who is with
the Royal Engineers of the Frst
Canadian Contingent. As Eddie's
home is in Greenwood, the letter
is particularly interesting to his
many friends in the west:
Dear Miss Hull.
Thank you very much for your
letter and the volume of Kipling's
ballads. It was a curious thing
that about two days before the
bo,pk arrived, the author himself
was in our camp, meeting some of
the fellows, and talking with them.
He has since written a very flattering article in an English paper, on
tbe Canadian Engineers.
You Bpoke of having been in
Amesbury.' Our" huts are about
two miles from Amesbury, and
only the other day I accompanied
our Sergeant-Major to that village
for the purpose of rounding up any
stragglers who ' might be down
there. I looked in vain for the
barber's place, but I'm'confident
that he hasn't moved or built anew.

Saving, the_TimbeE_
You may talk about your Canadian Clubs and your Rideau Hall
and your Senate Restaurant,  bufe
when it comes down to the fine
points of table etiquette the only
guide that we Canadians want and
will have is the Canadian  Pacific
Railway.    It is the same in everything else.   The C.P.R.  runs our
finances, runs our business, runs-
our banks, runs our churches, and
I have even heard it suggested that
it runs our politics.    And now it
is running our table manners.   Sir
Thomas Shanghnessy ib the Kaiser
of Canada; in fact he is far more
autocratic than William of Potsdam.   He has decided that we are
not to have toothpicks. with our
meals.     Personally  I  never eat
toothpicks, so I don't mind; but
the decision is going to cause a
tremendous upheaval in many of
our social 'Circles, a greater  upheaval  than    any  similar  event
since the  Windsor  Hotel  threw
out the spittoons (I beg pardon,
cuspidors) from the main lobby (I
beg pardon, rotnndaj many years
ago.     Railway efficiency expert-
will probably assert that the abandonment of toothpicks on the C. P. B_
is merely another step in the process of getting rid of all wood fixtures on cars so as to reduce the
risk of fire; but I am confident
that Sir: Thomas would not have
sacrificed so ancient and honorable
an emblem as "the toothpick for
purely utilitarian reasons.���Beck's

Canada Copper Co
Last week the New York Mining
Age says:
Canada Copper advanced from
$1.25 to a high of $1.87i and closed
at $1.75. British Columbia Copper
has absolutely disapeared from the
New York Curb market. No
transactions are reported for many
weeks past. Canada Copper, organized in 1914, is the holding corporation for the property of which
British Columbia is the operator.
The newly acquired properties
on Copper Mountain, B. C, are
shaping up splendidly. The drills
are showing more and richer ore
than had been anticipated. All
the plans and designs for a concentrator are already completed.
They have been drawn up by the
flotation experts of Butte & Superior, at Butte, Montana. The mill
will be built when the railroad to
the Copper Mountain district Is
finished.
Canada Copper is an issue worth
watching. It will be recalled that
British Columbia sold at over $8
per share a few years ago when it
owned only the Greenwood, B. C,
properties. The new holdings surpass the old properties in value.
Sooner End It All Know
Kaslo-Slocan Mines
As a fighting nation the Turks
are out of the race, mainly because
they smoke teo many cigarettes.
Even the British army has been
impaired by so many of its members
being addicted to puffing "coffin
nails." More than three or four
cigs a day will reduce the efficiency
of any man, be he a soldier or
civilian. Excessive cigarette smoking is a form of lunacy that decreases the mental and physical
powers of any man. It is pitiful
to see so many young men and
boys in this country who cannot
sit still five minutes, without rolling a cig or asking for the "makings." Some great men smoke
"cigarettes! but they were great before they learned fehe hypnotic
habit. The boy or young man who
allows the cig to make him a slave,
will never amount to much in any
walk of life. Assay a bunch of
these fiends, and you will be surprised at the amount of vaccuum in
their upper sfeopes.
Rawhiding from the Reco was
commenced the first of the week.
The crew employed at the Surprise mine now numbers'forty men,
and of these about thirty are working on ore.
A heavy flow of water has been
encountered in the upraise at the
Payne, making progress extremely
difficult.
John Keen hopes to be able to
do considerable towards opening
up hie properties at Poplar this
coming season.
On account of the danger, from
snowslides and the difficulty in
getting in supplies, Alex Ferguson
has discontinued work on his lease
of the Marion, near New Denver.
The train crew which took the
special out of Kaslo to Sandon on
Saturday night made a trip from
Sandon to Rosberry, taking down
some $20,000 worth of ore.
The Finlanders that have been
at the Rambler for so many years
are getting thinned out, and but
few of them remain. According to
a person in authority at the.mine,
they had got it into their, heads
that tbe mine was not able to get
along without them.
Ore from the Surprise mine
which is being put through the
Ivanhoe mill, is hauled . along the
former K. and S. grade from Cody
on sleighs to a point opposite the
concentrator. It is . dumped into
a bin and then goes across Carpenter creek gulch tothe mill: oh an
aerial tramway. Shipments from
the mili, if the water holds out,
are expected to average from one
to two cars per day.���Kaslo Kootenaian.
For ourselves, we have an unshrinkable faith that the spirit of
militarism and the moral purpose
of the world are at wan. If we believed say8 the Winnipeg Tribune,
that the principles of Bismark, of
Treitschke, of Nietzsche, or Bem-
hardi, and of all the other fountiers of Prussian militarism, were
destined to prevail, we would welcome some cataclysm of nature
which would render the surface of
onr planet as barren of life as the
crust of the moon. If men were
destined for ever to thrust bayonets
into each other's vitals, if trenches
had for ever to be piled high with
human dead, if peaceful countries
had forever to live under the
shadow of the sword, the fortress
and the destroying horde, we would
say let the race grow senile and
decay. Bat the progress of the
suns is not in the direction of militarism. The stars in their course
are fighting against it.

Too Many Laws
Better no laws than too many,
said Montaigne. Jefferson used
the same thought to his remark
that the least governed is the best
governed.
But, bless .you, don't you recall what George Wither said in
his couplet?
" And be that gives us in thesedays
New lords may give us new laws."
It is a certainty that when we
elect a new legislature we elect a
whole brood of new laws. Why,
you exclaim, "do we need auy
more laws?   Haven't .we enough?.'?
I fancy there are now ten times
as many laws as you know anything about, but when our beneficent law factory at tbe capitol sets
the wheel in motion out comes a,
whole grist of new statute?.
Perhaps the reason we make
laws so rapidly is because we break
them so easily. Very few of us
go through the day without actually infringing upon the toes of a
statute.���Exchange.1
Great Mineral Finds
Child's View on the War
The following essay on the war
wa3 written by a girl of nine years
in a Cheshire elementary school:
"Tbe war is a terrible thing.
The Germans have sunk six of our
British ships. My brother is a
soldier and my mamma cries every
night about him because she says
he is her only Bon. I wish I was
a man, I would go to the Germans
and ask them not to fight my
brother because my mamma wants
him to come home again. My
sister - does not like the war she is
always saying it is not an honest
war, and my dadais always teasing
her. She goes with a boy that is a
Socialist, and my dada says Socialist people are peace. I think the
war will soon be over, and when
Father Christmas comes I am going to ask him to bring me my
brother home, because I wonld
rather have him than any toys.
I say a prayer every night for the
soldiers in the battle. I saw a lot
of Belgium soldiers yesterday when
I was coming to school. They had
their arms in a sling, and one had
only one foot. I don't know anything eke."
F. V. Dardier, J. G. Devlin
and George Fowler from Hope and
Nelson. B.C., were registered at
the Grand TJuion hotel last week.
These men are connected with a
Pacific Coast syndicate, and have
been on a prospecting tour down
the river in the Athabasca lake
district since last June. They
were favorably impressed with the
mineral outlook of the country and
reports numerous finds of most
every known mineral and claims
that there are hundreds of miles of
most promising rock. The "rock"
as they termed it, samples of which
they brought back from that remote district by canoe and dog
teams weighed about half a ton,
which further verifies its worth.
These samples were enclosed in
eight heavy canvas sacks about
cement bag size and weighed from
one hundred to two hundred
pounds each. These same men
spent considerable time in the district a year ago and they intend to
spend next summer in the game
locality with an outfit of diamond
drills and and about 50 * men.
They were not very communicative
to the reporter, but it could be Been
they were highly elated with their
work and find.���Athabasca News.

Quite a scandal was created a
few mornings ago by one of our
prominent and best-known citizens
beating his. wife up. Several of the
neighbors claim to haye seen part
of the incident. This paper withholds the man's name for he promised her that it would never ��� happen again, and as he is now
ashamed of his actions, he should
not be condemned too seriously by
other husbands. It was at least
5:30 in the morning and eye-witnesses declare that he not only
beat his wife up, but actually had
the fire going and the coffee pot on
before the surprised lady could get
to the kitchen and fully realized
how badly she was beaten up.
