A Soldier's Grave
The following extracts are from
a letter lately received from an
officer at the front:
I buried one of my poor boys
lasfe week: there was no parson
handy, and as I lacked a Prayer-
book I read the chapter in Corinthians (you know, "For tbis corruptible," &c.) and the doctor said a
prayer. Then we lowered him
just in bis uniform and overcoat,
with a waterproof sheet around
him. R.I.P. He was only a little
Bermondsey guttersnipe, but he
gave all he had, and God kuows.
Ob, I wish I could come back to
England and tell the men who are
doing nothing of the tragedy of
this land; of the stolid endurance
of the peasantry round here, the
old men and women, the young
wives and little children, the ruined homes, the thousands of Englishmen of al! ranks and sorts and
ages who daily and nightly go up
to the trenches not knowing if they
will ever come down the road
again. And then ��� I should like to
tell them of that little grave,
marked by a wooden cross cut from
a biscuit-box by a comrade (who
badly wanted that: bit of wood to
make a fire to boil some water for
bis tea), bearing simply bis, name
and number, regiment, and the
letters R.I.P. in indelible pencil;
and a tin wreath from the ruined
churchyard a stone's throw away.

will appear in a list of casualties,

these Hell-begotten Germans. I
am writing this within a few yards
of them, and do yon know that the
bit of ground we are holding now
has changed hands nine times since
the Jbpginning of the war.    It is
changed towards the Germans. At
first they spoke almost kindly of

with a terrific and devilish hatred.

FjVf.n* rural editors have troubles.
In that beautiFul dimple of America, New Denver, the horf.es walk
on the sidewalk in front of the
print shop at nights, and disturb
tlie editor's dreams. He sis train-
ir.g a huge dog to herd the equines
and in time the canine will have
command of the situation. We
sympathize with Jim, for we know
how it feels to be coddled in the
arms of Morpheus, gently dreaming of that etheral land where the
delinquent subscriber never butts
in, only to be awakened abruptly
by the noisy antics of embryonic
cavalry. Years ago when the
down of the first boom was still
sticking to Kaslo we slumbered in
a building that was surrounded by
George Hughes' mules. They had
the ears of tho camp and were
natural kickers. Like other animals in the town at that time they
would stay up all night. They
loved the smell of printers ink, and
every night they would bunch
around the office and sniff it, much
the same as Venus would the attar
of roses, every now and again
kicking the sides of the building
in a sort of fiendish mule-like glee.
Eventually they jari-ed all the
plaster and brfc-a-brac from -the
walls, and chewed the external
coating of pur stately edifice, until
it looked like a church in Rbeims.
Still we grew to love the mules in
their playful antics and never
tbiew even a cuss word at themr
so when John Daly lead them away
up to the snowy hills of Sandon
our soul was tinged with saduess,
and we almost dropped a tear in
their tracks as their beautiful forms
faded away in the distance of the
Three Forks trail. We were lonesome for those mules for many a
long night, but they never returned. So be kind to the horses, Jim,
for the night will come when they
will no longer be with you.
until they seem invulnerable to
yon as you see them march with
the free, easy gait clown the boulevards, and you see the fine, healthy
glow that open air life has put in
their faces.
Most of these men have never
slept in a room with window open
in their lives. They never traveled
in a train in which there was two
windows open at the same time
They all wore cotton in their ears
in the winter, and generally cod
died themselves. /
Now they stifle in the shut up
Paris buildings, and if one wishes
to be really comfortable on a railroad journey ho must choose a
compartment with only soldiers in
it, for they are sure to open everything up wide.
All this is going to be good for
the next generation of Frenchmen:
this love of open air will lead to
outdoor sports and camping and
mountain life, which is so very
common at home and so good for
young boys.
Already the French have followed the English in their love of
sports and all over France you find
the school children learning to
play games of which thoy had only
dimly heard the names.
A man who used to live here 20
years ago said that it was very
noticeable to see the actual increase
in stature that compulsory military
service had brought" about. He
said that uniformly the men were
two to three inches taller and
about 40 pounds heavier.
He claims that without compulsory service the race degenerates physically as well as morally,
and elaborating on his theory says
that the eitizens of the United
States are not as large men as they
used to be and that they are moral

Hope Mining News
Oscar Nelson is in receipt of the
following assay from samples taken
from ore of one of the claims at
23-mile: Gold, 0.4; silver, 32.8
oz ; copper, 11.5 per cent.
Jack Brady was in town the
other day and showed some rough
nuggets taken from the placer
ground which is being operated by-
himself and W. L. Cherry np the,
Coquihalla. The partners are;
making an endeavour to get down
to bedrock where they expect to'

W. M. Ogden, a mining expert,
along with Fred Bears as guide,
made a trip to Summit camp from.
Hope last Monday . to inspect a
group of live claims in which Robert Stevenson is interested. The
examiner declared himself fully
satisfied with what he had seen
and, providing that assay reports
are favorable, work will be commenced at an early date. This is
a silver-lead proposition, and ife is
reported that on one of the showings there is a vein tnree feet in
width of massive galena.
A number of prospectors who
have btaked on the copper load beyond Jones' Lake were in Hope
this week for fresh supplies. All
have the same story to tell regarding tbe huge body of ore already
reported in these columns and copied by many of the leading papers
in the province. The lead~ is
claimed to be 50 feet in width and
has been followed over the left
peak of Cheam Mountain and down
ou the opposite side. It is stated
thafe some sixteen years ago a party
of prospectors, hearing of a big
body of ore in the district of this
discovery, set out with Indian
guides but failed to reach the desired altitude on account of deep
snow. For prospecting at high
altitudes this season has been exceptionally favourable, owing to
the very light snowfall. Local
mining men who have seen samples taken from the property declare
that there are indications of tin.
There is said to be many tons of
rich looking "float" nearer the
mountain. The examination of the
slide led to the discovery of the
ore in place.���Hope Review.
