The Golden Rule of   Telephoning
When you telephone, you like to hear plainly and

So does the other person. Why impose the hardy
ship of unnecessary strain on your listener, when it is
such an easy matter to transmit your voice distinctly, by
placing your lips close to the telephone 1

In a letter to Major C. M.

in regard to the late Corporal A.

"In reference to your letter on
February 6th, I am sorry to say
that I do not know exactly when
and how your son met his death
on Nov. 18th, as I was knocked
out before he received his injuries.
-_E"-rw_-__   iiliat 1 vuu gBdUci     XIUUI    lOC
ters Bent me by survivors of my
section, he reached the German
lines, and while helping and directing hie men in their "Digging in"
operations, he was killed by machine gun fire.
"For two weeks previous to this
operation your son had been suffering from a slight rupture, and I had
sent him to the Transport Lines to
rest up, he however pleaded earnestly to come with us when he
heard we were to attack, so I let
him rejoin. His chum Corporal
Mertou was also killed on the
same morning.
"I would like to say that while
Corporal Shaw was under my command, he proved himself one of
my best men, quiet and capable,
brave and cheerful,, he was a splendid example to his comrades, and
there is no doubt, that had he su_>
vived he would have jumped from
N. CO. to commissioned rank in
his own Battalion.'''
Makes New Record
The production of the Anyox
plant of the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting and Power company in March last established a
new record for that month. It
aggregated 2,600,000 pounds of
copper extracted from 76,000 tons
of ore. The yield was ayproxi-
mately 35 pounds of metal to the
ton.
The record of no preceding
March has come within several
thousand tons of ore treated nor
within several thousand pounds of
metal produced. The production
of .March, 1916, was 2,300,277
pounds. The nearest month of
higher production than March of
this year was November of the last
previous year, when the output
was 3,017,259 pounds, while the
record production of 1916 was
3,383,230 pounds in May.
The weather of recent m#nths
has been the severest of several
years with which Granby has coped
and March was no exception.
With the period at end it is believed Granby will quickly return
to the maximum and possibly exceed it. One of the unite of the
Anyox plant is held in reserve, but
if production so encourages it can
be blown in. The New York report makes no mention of the performance at Grand Forks daring
March last. ���:���-��� -3. ���'_!���;.���.

"I thought I would drop you a

budget which I received tbis morning. Was also pleased to read the
news of the country around Rock
Creek and the Boundary district.
I am writing from the cellar of an
old house tnat has been knocked
down by shells, but it is nice and
comfortable. We have a big fire
place we built ourselves and lots of
wood, good and handy, so we have
nothing to grumble at. We have
had some awful cold weather, but
ib is milder now and lots of mud.
I saw Alex Johnson of Rock Creek
and he is well. I also met two of
my Nephews when on leave in
Folkestone and had never seen
them before, and we had a good
time. The people were awfully
good to those from the front.

Tide Is With The Allies
Frank H. Simonds of the New
York Tribune, a leading American
authority as to the military developments of the war, declared in
January that "the war had become
a stalemate and decision upon the
battlefield unlikely." Now Mr.
Simonds himself confesses that "he
was mistaken- in all his conclusions."
He spent February and March
in Great Britain and France and
studied the situation on the field
as well as in the cabinet. His
sources of information are Anglo-
French, but they receive confirma
tion from such independent and
inside observers of Germany as
Carl W. Ackerman, whose articles
appear in the Spokesman-Review,
and frous which paper this account
is taken.
Mr. Simonds reports that the
French and the British army alike
notice declining force in the German resistance and are convinced
that Germany'8 military machine
is wearing out. The swift and
striking .successes, ot iae isricisn
and the French laBt week and this
corborate the Simonds report which
,-was written before their spring
drive began. The mien moBt convinced that England and its allies
will triumph are the British and
French generals and soldiers who
are at daily grips with the German
armies.
In all things considered to form
an army's machinery the British,
according to Mr. Simonds, have
passed the French and Germans.
The English have as many trench
weapons as the Teutons and many
of their best weapons, the product
of American invention, surpass
thoee of their opponents. The
British army has been proven by
long testing and represents tho
survival of the fittest. It is a
heavy hammer to the Germans,
who have lost their best troops. Its
temper is that of the men who at
Ypres, when the odds against them
were five to one, withstood losses
approximating annihilation.
Mr. Simonds expects German
retreat, whose retirement already
surpasses any German withdrawal
since trench war began, to extend
to a line between Lille hear the
Franco-Belgian frontier and the
Meuse, and tells us that we now
see the prelude to the greatest
eotnpaign of the war. All evidences
betray German weakness, but Germany etill is able to bit hard.
Pfesent conditions parallel those
of Lee and Grant during the winter
of 1804-5, when the southern army,
though doomed, gave a good account of itself.
Mining Notes
Over 23 tons of ore, having a
value of ��100 to the ton after the
deduction of transportation and
treating charges, has been shipped
from the Lead Trust mine. Boundary district. The lot averaged
7G.G per cent lead, 1.7 ounces silver to the ton and only a trace of
zinc, the remainder having been
sulphur and lime.
The Rambler Cariboo mine in
the Slocan is again shipping ore to
the Trail smelter. The movement
of ore was stopped three months
ago, partly in consequence of a
snow slide that blocked 'the railroad from the mine. The first
shipment was composed of three
carloads of crude ore and one of
concentrates.
The Payne mine, near Sandon,
credited with a yield of $1,000,-
000 in dividends to early operators, has been leased by W. H.
Bmgess or *__aslo, accoraing to a
renoit from Nelson. Mr. Burgess
proposes to begin operations as
soon as men and supplies can be
taken to the mine.
After a suspension since midwinter forced then by weather conditions, the Galena Farm mine
and mill at Silverton, resumed
operations about two weeks ago.
Sixty five men have been employed.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting company received 8091
tons of ore at its smelter, Trail, in
the first seven days of April.
The Galena Hill mine, of Rock
Cut, Wash., will install a concentrator with 100 tons capacity.
The burning of the large concentration of the Consolidated company at Moyie a few months ago,
although a heavy loss and pretty
well covered by insurance, was a
blow to the little mining town in
East Kootenay, but appears to
have been a good thing for Trail���
as tbe decision has been arrived at
to rebuild the concentrator in
Trail, says the Trail News.
Work has been started on clearing the ground for the new structure on Smelter hill, to be located
immediately north of the gigantic
zinc works. The main building of
the new department will be about
100x50 feet in size and will contain
the mill proper, the concentrator
dryers and roasters etc., the flotation process���which has been worked out successfully in mill practice
in recent years���being used.
It is understood that the new
concentrator will be used primarily
as an experimental plant for concentrating the complex ores from
the company's Sullivan mine.
Like most of the beginnings of this
company in Trail, however, it is
likely to work out to be one of the
most important parts of thiB growing metallurgical works.
Doubtless in due course, the mill
will handle the various assortments
of customs lead-silver ores that
contain more or less zinc, and
which are most objectionable for
furnace treatment. In fact, so
little attention has been paid to
proper sorting that the Consolidated
company has found it necessary to
--<-*_���-.-. <.�� ���_._*n;.Tn   __���-_ 1 ___.��a    f\raa    f_On-
taining more than 15 per cent zinc.
Some mines that have been shipping a miscellaneous assortment of
lead-silver ores, have been sending
along much zinc also���the metal
that makes the trouble in smelting
in the blast furnaces, the usual
treatment for lead ores. As the
company sorts its own ores, it now
asks that others do the same thing,
and separate the sheep from the
goats, as it were, making it better
for all concerned.

Swat The Fly
Kill at once every fly yon can
find and burn his body.
Observers say that there are
many reasons to believe there will
be more flies this season than for a
number of years.
Tbe killing of just one fly NOW
means there will be bilHGns and
trillions less next summer.
Clean up your own premises; gee
and insist that yonr neighbors do
likewise.
Especially clean "out-of the
way-places," and every nook and
cranny.
Flies will not go where there ia
nothing to eat, and their principal
diet is too filthy to mention.
BIG DOLLAR DAY BARGAIN
The Vancouver Daily Sun for Six
Months for One Dollar
The Vancouver Daily Sun,
which is rapidly coming to the
front as one of the best of the
larger dailies on the coast, is making a special appeal this month for
new subscribers throughout the
proviiice> and has in this connection fixed Saturday, April 21st, as
a Bpecial bargain day. Any subscriber sending one dollar oh or
before this date will be entitled to
The Vancouver Daily Sun for six
months, prstage prepaid. If you
are already a reader of The Sun,
send one dollar and your subscription will be extended for six
months.
It is expected that thousands
throughout the province of British
Columbia will take advantage of
this big bargain offer. The San is
certainly good value-
Cars containing apparatus for
disinfecting the clothing and baggage of passengers who have been
exposed to contagious diseases
have been put into service by an
Italian railroad.
Cheese
Cheese is a much maligned product, It is really not to blame
for itself. Responsibility for it
rests solely upon the human  race.
Cheese starts out in life as sweet,
amiable milk. It is hartiessly
pushed aside by unfeeling humans
and allowed to get so lonsome and
distracted that it sours on the
world.
Then instead of the poor ruined
stuff being put out of its misery as
humanely as possible, it is left to
get worse ond worse until it finally
comes cheese.
But don' t blame cheese for that.
It is more to be pitied than censured.

Farm-hand (excitedly ): ' 'Farmer,
farmer, come quick, your Mary has

Farmer:    "What is it?"

shock.   I thought you said mare."
