Out Off His Own Leg
Describing an action in which
he lost his leg, a sergeant of the
Rifle Brigade says:
"I was just getting up and turning round to take my platoon to
the left, when smack went my leg
���and didn't I jump !
"It did not blow my leg clean
off, it was banging by a thick piece
of flesh, sinews and skin, so I hopped a few yards down the hill under cover, and eat behind some
straw, and cut my leg off with a
pen knife.
"The 6bells were still flying
round, and one came pretty close
to me. I thought my time had
come. I lay there for over an
hour until I was carried to safety
by a sergeant of artillery, and I
came across some oFmy men, who
carried me to a cave and put me
on a stretcher.
"I might mention I had a' piece
of string round my leg to stop it
from bleeding, which saved my
life. I was not sorry when I arrived here and saw the nice white
sheets. It was like coming Out of
hell into Heaven."

A Gallant Priest
A bombing party of eight had
gone out in the night. They did
not return. When morning came
the regiment pictured their comrades lying wounded and dying in
the mud and the decaying corn.
If they could only know for certain
what had happened, it would be a
relief of a sort.    But how to know ?
It was broad daylight; the German snipers were in position; even
to put ones head over the parapet
meant death. Suddenly a Catholic
chaplain attached to the regiment,
came up to the firing line and asked to be allowed to go out in front
and try to find tbe bodies.
After some hesitation, his request was granted. Wearing Mb"'
surplice and with the crucifix in
his hand, the priest advanced down
our of the gaps and climbed out
into the open. With their eyes
fixed to periscope, the British
watched him anxiously as he proceeded slowly towards the German
lines. Not a shot was fired by the
enemy. After a while the chaplain was seen to stop and bend
down near the German wire entanglements. He knelt in prayer.*
Then with the same calm step he
returned to his own lines. He
had fonr identity discs in hand,
and reported that the Germans had
held up four khaki caps on their
rifles, indicating that the other four
were prisoners in their hands.

Canada Copper's Greenwood,
(B. C ) smelter is making hand-
f-ome _ profits at present copper
prices. Tbe output from the sin-
jjlft furnace for the first three
months of 1916 is about 325,000
pounds monthly. In April this
-was increased to about 500,000
pounds per mouth. This gives the
company a total production of
over 4,000,000 pounds this year.
On the basis of the present price of
copper at around 35 cents, and a
working cost of IB cents, this production would now indicate earnings at tbe rate of 8800,000 per annum, equivalent to over 80 cents a
share on the 900,000 shares of a
par value of $5 outstanding, or
about 37 per cent on the week's
closing quotation. The management believes that when the entire
property is whipped into shape the
yearly production will be approximately 20,000,000 pounds, with an
average production cost of around
9-1 cents.���Mining Age.

Condemns Card Playing
A report thafe a certain prominent church is to relax its decipline
eo far as to countenance dancing
and card playing among its parish-
oners calls forth in the current
number of the New York Medical
Journal an editorial on card playing, in which the pastime is denounced as a "pure and simple
mental dissipation which grows up
on the victim like all other dissipa
tions, to the eventual exclusion of
logical and close thinking."
The writer of the editorial expresses hearty approval of dancing
as "an art, perfection in which requires study and practice and leads
to a healthy fatigue which prevents excess," but he hopes that
';ai_y religious body which has the
power will continue to enforce a
regulation evidently based years
ago upon observation of the Stupefying effects of card playing, effects
which are identical with those of
playing, the races, a pastime which
-lually incurred extinction at the
hvnds of none too squeamish Legislature."
Ord playing may be "a valuable
..j'..-.���..action  for   the elderly,"   the
AVfi-er grants, but once a week on-
"Thou Shalt Not Covet"
The millennium will never come
nntil men cease trying to compel
all other men to live after one pattern-. Most people are anxious to
do what is best for themselves and
least harmful to others. The average man has intelligence enough.
If the self appointed folk who rule
us���for a consideration ��� would
only be willing to do unto others
as fehoy would be done by, that is
to say, mind their own business
and cease coveting things that belong to other people���if they would
do this, "Utopia would arrive. War
among nations ami strife among
individuals iu community life is a
result of the covetous spirit to
possess.
Hubbard once wrote: "A little
more patieuce, a little more charity
for all, a little more.love; with le?s
bowing down to the past-, and the
silent ignoring of pretended authority; a brave looking forward to the
future, with more self-confidence
and more faith in our fellow men,
and the race will'be ripe for a great-
burst of life and light."���Enderby

To Be An Editor
Most any one can. bo au editor.
A_.ll an editor has to do is to sit at
a desk six days out of the week,
four weeks of the month, and
twelve months of tbe year, and
"edit" such stuff as this:
"Mrs. Jones of Cactus Creek, let
a can opener slip last week and
cut herself in the pantry."
"A mischievous lad of Piketown
threw a stone and hit Mrs. Pike in
the alley last Thursday."
"John Doe climbed on the roof
of his honse last week and fell,
striking himself on the porch."
"While Harold Green was es-
cortiug Miss Violet Wise from the
church social last Saturday night,
a savage dog attacked and bit Mr.
Green on the public square."-
"Isaiah Thimmer, of Running
Creek was playing with a cat last
Friday, when it scratched him on
the verandah."���Selected.
