Lost an Eye
Private B>. J. McCurdy, of Keremeos, was visiting his sister  Mrs.
Joseph  Richter this week,  on his
way  back   from    the  war.      He
went to   France   with   the   48th
Highlanders from Victoria.   While
in a'bayonet charge at Festbubert
last May he  was .blinded   by  a
piece of shell.    Unable to see, and
guided by tbe shouts of the wounded he started for the first dressing
station,  a mile and a half to .the
rear.    He stumbled against a soldier who was shot in the leg, and .
the two formed a partnership.  McCurdy helped his comrade to walk,
who guided the way to the dressing
station.   In seven days the sight
returned to his left eye,  after the
right one had been operated  npon
and the piece of shell taken ont.
McCurdy has been honorably discharged and will receive a pension
for impaired eyesight.   His stomach is   still    suffering   from   the
effects of gas on the   battlefield,
and he intends to camp oujt up
Ashnola creek  until his health is
improved. ���   He  states   that  the
British remove  their  wounded at
night from the battlefields, as in
the daytime the German snipers
shoot any of  the wounded   that
show signs of life; also  Red Cross
men if tbey venture out to help
the    wounded.     The   Canadians
wished to pursue the same tactics
towards  the   Germans,   but   the
officers  will not permit that kind
of warfare.    McCurdy lost his best
friends at Festbubert and is naturally saddened by the terrible experiences of the past few months.
Kaslo Copper
It is thought by quite a number
of old time prospectors and others
that Kaslo will some   day   rank
among the -big "copper campsn of
British   Columbia.     The   indications on True Blue mountain,   to
the south of the town, give grounds
for this  belief.   A large iron capping cuts across the mountain and
it is said to have all^the earmarks
of a copper vein.    It is  thought
that this is the lead, or a piece of
it from  which a quantity of high
grade copper ore was glory-holed
out  on   the   True Blue claim in
1898, but the main vein appears to
be difficult to locate on that side.
It ie much more clearly defined on
the south side of the hill, where
the Kane claims are located.   The
surface rock is all iron, and the
opinion is that development upon
it will open up a big copper de-
posit.    Another" hill-cl6s<Tto town
showing   indications of    mineral
possibilities,   is Kaslo mountain,
just across the lake.   Upon  this
hill is located the huge Leviathan
lead,  which is also iron capped,
but carrying gold values near the
surface.   Near the summit some
early day  prospecting   was done
and another big iron lead  exposed
assay of some of the rock being reported as carrying good  values in
gold.     None  of these   are poor
men's propositions, bat they might
repay some investigation  by capital.���Kaslo Kootenaian.

1.00ZE IN VERNON
T
UV. I'
\"_;i.>i;,
���amping of  tho soldiers in
lwis boon a great  boon  to
',!;i' -In mills ot that city.     The re-
���; ipis uf some of tho bars  run into
'iuri...vd_.  ol*  dollars   a   day.    At
ivUi-- times  of  the day   the bars
\\r.  tilled   with   soldiers,    thicker
!.;._.   flics  around a gob of spilled
���tigar. all clamoring for booze, and
;.i.U-ii.g their money down  on  the
oar like white chips  in  a five cent
;.oker game.    A Vernon bar in the
early evening has got, with the ex-
'.ei.tion  of  the  shooting, the Arizona   saloons   of   the  early   days
skinned  to  a sloppy   finale.    Although they are  all gunmen none
���>f  the boys  in kbaki have as yet
leaded a bar hop, or shot tbe lights
out.    Vernon   whiskey   must   be
more soporiferous   than   militant.
It is  one of the great sights of
these days of war  to see a Vernon
barroom  in   action.     Every   two
feet,   entrenched   behind   a   long
breastwork of mahogany stand tbe
noble,    resolute   aud    determined
bartenders,   prepared to  do until
overcome by tho gas.    Eagerly the
Cantidiaus leap into action  every
man    burning   to     do    his    two
bits   towards   putting    down   the
enemy.     The   compact is terriffic
and  the  spectacle bizarre.    Shote
are exchanged with great rapidity,
and- several   schooners   are   sunk
every  second. .   Great   volleys of
-...silver are fired ab the courageous
bartenders, but, amid all the dim,
shock,- and smoke you  can hear
the death rattle of the-Scotch, and
- the* constant falling of the "dead
marines"   upon   the floor.    If the
brave 54th can fight the Germans,
as well as it does John Barleycorn
and his allies, we will have Satan's
brother, the Kaiser, in hock, before
the last Hash of Indian summer.
Last week we looked in a neighboring newspaper, expecting to
see an account of how a young
man had gone wrong. Not a line
about the young man could be
found. A broken hearted wife or
relative had gone to tbe editor and
asked him to say nothing, aud the
tears had won the promise from
him. We have gone through the
same thing ourselves many times.
An editor is humane; ho has his
likes and dislikes, he loves and he
hates; his strength betsveen love
and duty is just like that of an
average citizen. We remember
one case in particular. We had
let a certain case go by because a
tearful mother bowed down with
grief had come to us and begged
the favor. A big-headed man
jumped on us about it, and called
us a coward for so doing, A short
time afterwards the shadow fell
across his threshold and he came
running and begging us to say
nothing. "Yes," we replied, "but
don't you remember the time you
called me a coward for keeping
still?" "I know" he replied, "but
I was wrong; it is different now."
And we listened to him, but there
are things an editor cannot suppress. There are other things he
can forget with propriety. As far
as we are concerned, we would
rather lessen the grief of a parent
thau throw out a morsel for gossiping people to feed upon. We

Dead Towns
That cancer is caused by eating
rice flour and other foods which
have been robbed by millers of
some of their most valuable elements before they reach our
mouths is the belief of Dr. Horace
Packard, of BoBton University.
Such a demoralized diet, he declares, encourages tha development of the parasite or fungus
growth whose entrance into the
system leads to cancer.
It is a momentous fact," he
says, that the flour mills and the
rice mills of the civilized world are
busy eliminating every particle of
iron, phosphrous, sodium, potassium, silica, calicum, chlorine,
magnesium and sulphur (mineral
salts), from our staple food supply
and sending out food material rich
in heat units, but pitful meagre in
energizing and immunizing material.
"In a single flour mill of the
Middle West, approximately one
million tons of wheat are milled
each year. Of this about 550,000
tons go to the human family as refined flour (wheat starch) and
450,000 tons of the by-products
bearing the energizing immunizing
food salts go mainly to feed domestic animals."

This is a great and" growing
country, but there are many dead
towns iu it. . A dead town is one
in which the cemeteiy and the
saving bank accounts do all the
growing. It can be told readily by
the way the citizen tells the stranger what time the next train leaves
without waiting to be asked. They
know he is going to escape as soon
as possible. In a dead town the
citizens wear badges to keep the
coroner from getting confused.
The milk wagon whistles for the
crossings, and the children cut dandelion greens in the main street.

less crowd of flying tongues and
sink the iron deeper into her tender
soul. So when in this neighboring paper we failed to find what
we wanted, we made no comment.
But deep down in our own hearts
we admired that editor and thought
more of him, because he had a
heart that was tender and he
would rather listen to the jibes of
an unfeeling public than to the
sobs of a broken-hearted mother,
wife and sister.
The above is from a country
paper in Oregon and it tells exactly as it is known to every country newspaper man who is known
by all his patrons.    It is different
with the editor of the  big   city
paper who is practically unkuown (J00(J fg Retllffl StyU 28tu
to nine-teuths of his readers.    He
is seldom appealed to concerning
the suppression   of   news   matter
that might reflect on   a   patron.
But with the small  paper   it  is
different.    Its editor is asked almost   weekly   to    "say   nothing
about"  such and such a matter
and unless he heeds the appeal, he
is hard-hearted and brutal.    Even
those who never spend a cent with
a paper, will expect to be favored
every time they "slip a cog."   So
far as  we are concerned, we ge%
beastly tired of this "favoring-by-
Biippression" business, but we continue to do it���probably for the
reason that we still have a heart.���

Mountain Climbing
.������~���_������
The first mountain climber to
reach an altitude of $25,000 feet
was Miss   Annie  S.   Peck,   who
broke all previous records by attaining    the   summit  of  Mount
Huascaran, Peru, the highest peak
of the western hemisphere,  seven
years ago.   The  previous record
for mountain climbing was held by
W.  W.  Graham^  who reached a
height of 23,800 feet in the Himalayas.   Miss Peck's first attempt
to attain the heights of Huascaran
failed on account of the cowardice
of  her gudies,  after a height Of
17,500 feet.    In 1908 Miss Peck
was    accompanied    by   Bndolph
rangwalder and Gabriel Zumtang-
wald, two  famous Swiss guides,
who suffered terribly from underestimating    the    cold    and    in
consequence of failing to provide
themselves with sufficient clothing.
Tangwalder was- terribly   frozen,
.ud one of his feet and the fingers
<-)f one hand had to b._ amputated.
iliss Peck was better provided with
clothing,  and   escaped   unscathed
from  the  rigors  of  the  terrible
climb.   The altitude attained by
Miss Peck is 10,000 feet less than
the highest ever reached by aeronauts.
