TOO MUCH SALT
By eating too much salt we become aged and worn out before the
natural time limit; of our days on
.-.is  earth.    Dr.   Woodward says:
"We eat so much salt that the
South sea island cannibals, with
a natural appetite, cannot eat us
because, they say, we are too
salty. Every man needs 20
grains of salt in a day���he get"
about 400. This means that his
{issues are invaded by a surplus
of salt which cannot be eliminated. The result is a hundred
tiilments. The excess salt, for
instance, causes old people to
have such brittle bones that
when they stumble over some-
l liing they break a leg or an
arm."
"Dr. W. A. Evans writing on
tho same subject:
"Animals which eat grass
must have salt. Carnivorous
animals get all the salt they need
from their food. Cannibals are
carnivorous animals, but at that
there is no proof that they would
balk at an Illinois doctor.
Sherman says salt equilibrium
can easily be maintained on less
o.ian one-fourth the amount of
salt eaten.
The body contains 1540 grains
of salt. When salt free food is
eaten for two weeks the body
"will lose about 160 grains.
Moderate variation, in the amount of salt eaten makes no particular difference. If a slight
excess is eaten the kidneys and
sweat glands throw it off in a
few'hours.
A great excess increases the
amount of tissue burned up. It
also throws an extra strain on
the kidneys. Possibly people
who eat far too much salt wear
out'and break down earlier than
they otherwise would.
The statement that we eat 400
grains of salt a day, that we are
pickled in brine are rather strong.
Bunge explains the reasons
why we call for salt on potatoes
and some other vegetables. Potatoes are rich in potash. When
we eat them the potash is eliminated ae potassium chloride, and,
in being eliminated, the potash
stimulates the elimination of
sodium sulphate. These processes, rob the tissues of salt.
Salt is craved to repair the lose."
To enforce prohibition, without
compensation to some of the hotel-
keepers, would be an injustice, and
contrary to the love of British fair
play in all things.
Ax anti-treating law, properly
enforced, would be better than
prohibition. It would save 90 per
cent, of drinkers from getting
drunk, and the other ten per cent,
would get drunk under any kind
of a law, except total and absolute
prohibition.
The owners of idle crown granted mineral claims, should pay
more taxes or work their properties. The dronish speculator
should be made to pay something,
for holding back the development
of the natural resorces of this great
province. The dogs in the manger
should eat the hay or get out.
Make booze free from cost, and
in a year premiums would have to
be offered to get people to drink it.
By that time all the dipsomaniacs
would be dead, and the rest of the
people would have booze in the
same class as castor oil. The
more barriers you place around
anything, the greater the desire becomes to obtain ife.
We would rather see the whole
world drunk, than one man kept
sober by compulsion. Let love
rule instead of law. Unless prohibition is absolute and entire it
will be a curse. As framed now
prohibition is doomed to failure.
No half way measures can make a
success of anything,' and especially
in the liquor traffic.
With Sunday fanatics, prohibition cranks, alien pluggers, political grafters, crooked officials, and
other parasites and disturbers this
province is rapidly becoming devoid of freedom. If Christ does
not soon return and straighten ont
the trouble and turmoil, the devil
will soon have his mitts on everything in fehe country, including
Bowser.
No man can ride all the horses
in a circus, without hurting himself, and delaying the performance.
In attempting to play the dual
character of premier and attorney-
general, upon the political stage of
this great vote plugging province,
the Hon. W. J. Bowser, the
Napoleon of B. C. politics, is making a mistake. Either of these important offices is quite sufficient,
for even a robust man.
There is mnch activity in the
Big Bend this summer, and large
quantities of supplies are being
shipped in from Eevelstoke.
It is reported that a rich gold
strike has been made, a few miles
from Greenwood, near Eockctit,
Wash., in the Orient mining division.
The second Relief near Erie is
installing a cyanide plant. Th:e
mine has a large body of ore blocked out thafe runs from 835 to $600
a ton, principally gold.
On a basis of two shares for one,
the largest individual holder in
B. C, recently exchanged 11000
shares of B. C. Copper Co., for
Canada Copper Co. stock.
Louis Philip Smith died in Butte
last month. He was one of the
five men who discovered gold iii
Alder Gulch, Montana, in 1862.
At one time he was chief of police
in Bntte.
It is stated that, when the 2000-
ton mill is ...erected at Copper
Mountain by the Canada Copper
Co., that it will turn out concentrates daily, containing 60,000
pounds of copper.
A. Erskine Smith and his partners will work the Indian and
Hazelton View claims in the
Hazelton district. The ore iB arsenical, carrying values in gold,
silver and nickel.
Near Alice Arm, a valuable find
of silver ore was made on a claim
belonging to J. E. Smith, by blasting out fehe wagon road to the
Dolly Varden. George B. Naden
owns the claim adjoining this rich
strike.
It is reported that Jerome Drum-
heller has bonded the old Caaba
mine, near Nighthawk, Wash. It
contains a large body of ore, that
could be easily mined and shipped
to the smelters at Greenwood and
Grand Forks.
The deepest mine in the world
is in Silesia, Europe. It is 6,000
feet deep, and practical men claim
that 6,000 feet is the limit of depth
at which mining can be carried on
with safety. The B. C. mines are
in no immediate danger of getting
too deep.
About 30 miles from Ashcroft,
Keffer & Johns have nnder bond
the Sanson andChataway groups of
copper claims. A 60 ton concentrator is being built on the Chat-
away group, and a carload of
machinery for it was shipped from
the old smelter at Boundary Falls
last week. When this mill is in
operation it will concentrate 6 to 1,
and tbe product will be shipped to
the Greenwood smelter.

OFFICE-PACIFIC HOTEL
... Wild   oats do* not make good
porridge.
The club of   war   has   dinked
many a heart solo.
Some people have to die in order
to get a boquet of flowers.
Some newspapers are not much
better than a cemetery for dead
_r
ads.
Some people even sefid east for
their wives, but they do not pick
them out of a catalogue.
Find the key to a tightwad's
heart, and you can easily burst the
iron bands, that encircle^his bankroll.
The mean man jis never naturally polite. His politeness is like
the whitewash, that you put on
with a brush.
Why should Canada lend money
to the Canadian .Northern, or any
other railway? Bill and Dan built
the C. N". E. on a white chip���plus
several hundreds of millions of
dollars of the people's money.
They are now worth millions, and
invest their money in mines, street
railways, etc. They should put
up eome of their own money if the
Canadian Northern needs assist-
ance. The people ��re getting tired
of putting np for railroads that the
government does not own. High
finance for promoters is low finance
for the people.
B. C. Mines
Bust Porter is working a copper
property at Green City.
A Montana company is working
a group of claims at Smithers.
The War Eagle copper mine
near Whitehorse will ship ore this
summer.
The Pavey mine on the east
shore of Bennet lake will soon be
shipping ore.
The value of the mines in Oatman, Arizona, should be proved in
the next 90 days.
With the assistance of eastern
capital, O. T. Bibb is developing
his claims on Fish creek, in the
Lardeau.
Tunnels on the 2700, and 4100
foot levels are to be driven at the
Britannia mine, Howe Sound.
This is a vein mine, and promises'
to be one of the greatest copper
mines in the west.
Crowded Houses
Every show at the Royal yesterday was crowded with large and
delighted audiences who thorongh-
ly enjoyed the magnificient performance of Bees Bros. Africander
company of 15 talented artists.
The word"artist" is used advise-
ably, as every man and woman
who participated in the langbing
musical comedy is a star in hif or
her line. The Jokes were new.
The chief lady dancer was as light
on her feet as a butterfly. The
orchestra and band were composed
of an all star aggregation.���Peter
borough Review, January 18, 1916.
