I I TELEPHONE TO THE COAST!
Owing to recent improvements, telephoning to
Coast and Island points reached by the B. C. Telephone
Company, is now very satisfactory. It's a long and expensive trip to the Coast by rail, but you save not only
money but much time by using the telephone. You^
may make an appointment, and- Central will have the
party wanted at any time you wish.

Returned soldiers have just cause
for complaint in the scale of pensions now being paid. The maximum pension for the rank and file
is 8480 per year with an additional
allowance to those who are unable
to care for themselves, or who require special attention. The pensions increase with rank up to a
brigadier-general, whose pension is
$2700 a year. The soldier disabled
to the extent of 60 per cent or over,
receives $5 per month for each
child. The child of a brigadier-
general receives $10 per month. A
private's child is only worth half
as much to the state as the officer's
child. This disparity between the
pension of the rank and file and
officers in the allowance made for
children is manifestly unfair and
should be removed.���Calgary Nutcracker.

Treadwell Mines Flooded
A despatch from Juneau, Alaska,
says that the Alaska Treadwell,
Alaska United, and Alaska Mexican, three of the largest units of
the famous Treadwell group of
mines, have been flooded by the
sea and rendered useless. This
cuts the paproll at Treadwell 65
per cent. All the miners were
saved, but all the mules and horses
were drowned. Up to date the
mines destroyed have produced
$56,000,000 in gold. The disaster
is a sad blow to the city of Donglas,
but does not effect Juneau so
adversely.
Payments Less
The dividend disbursement of
British Columbia mines in the first
quarter of this year is $738,846, as
compared with $1,028,387 in 1916.
This is $289,541 less than -in 1916,
bnt the dividends of 1916 were
swollen by a distribution of $137, -
890 by the Suvf Inlet company
from the proceeds of a sale to the
Tonopah Belmont Development
company and a snrplus distribution
of $135,000 by the Mother Lode at
Sheep Creek when it discontinued
operations.
Two of the leading compani-v*
are paying greater dividends this
year than last. They are the
Granby with 5374,962 in the first
quarter of this year, as compared
with 8224,978 in the first quarter
of 1916, and the Consolidated Mining and Smelting with $210,695, as
compared with $209,830. Crows
Nest Pass Coal paid $93,189 and
Hedley $60,000, respectively, i
each quarter. Standard Silver-
Lead nas gone on a 20 per cent
basis instead of a 30 per cent since
the first quarter of 1917 and -Rambler-Cariboo has declared a dividend
of $17,500 since the first quarter,
as compared with a disbursement
in the same amount during the
first quarter of 1916.
A greater disbursement in 1917
than 1916 is expected by mining
men in spite of the shortage in the
first quarter. Both Granby and
Consolidated are making larger
distributions and several producing
mines have been earning substantially during the winter in consequence of new disclosures, development, improved equipment and
higher prices for the metals and
this in spite of interruptions as
many resulting from weather condition tnequaled in severity for
manyyears.
Use The Soil
It is just as important under
present conditions to have reserves
of food as reserves of cartridges.
When so much is dependent upon
a good crop, the entire community
should concern itself about the
situation from the beginning of the
season. There are certain common vegetables, comprising a large
part of tbe food supply, such as
potatoes, beans, onions, etc., which
do well in all parte of the country.
They can be grown in a small way
without machinery, and their production this year in ample quantities should be assured beyond
chance or doubt.

A GREAT AD.
After running 27   months the
exposition at San Diego, California,
finally closed upon April 1st.   The
Canadian Exhibit was admitted by
the millions of visitors to be the
finest of all the exhibits.    This exhibit which is now being packed up
and shipped to Ottawa, was one of
the best advertisements that Canada has ever had.    It was a source
of great pleasure to all Canadians
who   visited   the Exposition,   to
hear upon all  sides the words of
hearty praise awarded to the Canadian Exhibit by people from all
parts of the world.     It has caused
thousands  of people to come   to
Canada and take up land, and has
been of great benefit to the mining
industry    of    British    Columbia.
After viewing the grand  display
of minerals from   this   province,
ably explained by Wm. Thomlinson   of   New Denver,   who    had
charge of that department, Bcores
of mining men from all parts of
America, especially Mexico,  havo
turned their attention to the north,
and many are now in this province,
seeking investments.    It is to be
regretted that this wonderful Exr
Mbit of Canada's resources could
not be made a permanent institution in one of the great centres of
the United States.     The Californ
ians  were envious of it, when the
world lifted its hat,  and vibrated
the ozone with ejaculations of sincere praise and approval.    Hurrah
for   Canada!      It   is   the   great
country of the future.
The following from the Victoria
Colonist of April 14 is pleasing to
thousands of people who know
Mr. Thomlinson. He certainly
did great work for Canada in
California, and deserves substantial
recognition by the mining men of
the Dominion:
"Mr.   Win.    Thomlinson,    who
left the city yesterday, after a   few
day's stay on his way home to New
Denver,   Slocan  Lake,  from    San
Diego,   California,   where lie  had
been for  a year at the  Panama-
California Exposition, has probably
done more effective work in giving
publicity to   information   concerning the mineral resources of British
Columbia to United  StateB  people
than has any other man  in  recent
years.    First at tho Panama-Pacific
Exposition at San   Francisco,   and
since then  at San  Diego,   he has
been tireless in his zealous  efforts
to impress upon large  numbers  of
visitors  to  those expositions   the
variety, value and great extent of
miueral  occurrences  in  this  Province.    Having had years of practical experience in prospecting and
mining in  the  Kootenay  district
and other parts of  British   Columbia, and withal  having long been
an observant student of the geology
and mineralogy of the regions  to
which he has given  his attention,
and still further, having fitted himself  by  a course  in  a  School of
Mines of good standing to  discuss
intelligently the minerals,   a large
and thoroughly representative  collection of which  he  made,   under
instructions from   the    Dominion
Government, for ihe Canadian  exhibit in   California,   he is   better
qualified than, perhaps, any  other
available man to give information
concerning the mineral resouces of
this country.      Certain it is  that
whether it was prospector or miner
who sought information from him,
or mining students and  engineers
familiar in large or smaller degree
with  minerals generally,   he  was
equal to the occasion,  and gave
abundantly of his knowledge of the
mineral.wealth of this well-favored
Province.    It is to be hoped there
will be found other suitable  ways
in which his  valuable services   in
this connection may be utilized, so
that his  undeniable usefulness  in
this particular field may'be further
availed of.     In any case he has
well earned,  and  should  receive,
ungrudging thanks from the mining   men   of   the   Province   as a
whole, for he has done a work that
will, doubtless prove of much advantage to the mining industry  of
British Columbia."

The above is the name of a new
booklet just issued by the Department of Colonization and Development of the C.P.R.    As its name
implies, it is a description of these
three great provinces, with particular reference to their agricultural
resources.       Although     designed
primarily   to    interest   intending
pettlers in C.P.R. lands, the booklet also contains a vast amount of
general information of value to all
who have thrown  in   their lot in
Western Canada, or who may contemplate doing bo.    In addition to
general descriptive matter the booklet contains tables of Western Canada's temperatures  and  precipitations, an article on the grain trade,
tables  of elevator   capacity    and
grain   prices,   average   yields    of
grain for the last  17  years,   livestock statiscics, an  article on  the
value of irrigation, and information
on such topics  as  "ready-made"
farms, naturalization,  school system, agricultural  education,   railway facilities, taxation, system  of
land survey, etc.    The booklet is
handsomely   illustrated    with    84
photographs of scenes in  Western
Canada,   and includes a   railway
and land map of Western  Canada.
Any person interested may  obtain
a copy without charge by  writing
to the  Publicity  Branch,   C.P.R.,

Collinsville. 111.���"I suffered from a
nervous breakdown and terrible headaches and was tired all over, totally
worn out and discouraged, but as I had
a large family I had to work despite my
suffering. I saw Vinol advertised and
decided to try it, and within two weeks
I noticed a decided improvement, and
now I am a well woman."���Mrs. Ana
Beckeu.
We guarantee Vinol, our non-secret
tonic, to strengthen and build up
weak, run-down, overworked mothers,
delicate children and feeble old people.

Circle Tours
In anticipation of considerable
tourist travel this year, and for the
purpose of providing attractive
routes for the holiday seeker, the
Kettle Valley railway has published an excursion schedule that presents a variety of choice in the
selection of a summer trip through
the most scenic and attractive
country west of the Rockies.
These tourB have been arranged
with a view of  providing a wide
selection as well as to appeal to
the holiday seeker whose time, and
the condition of whose pocket-book
may be somewhat limited.    The
circle tours, as their name implies
are round trips with Penticton as
starting point, and including every
point of interest in British  Columbia and  the western  portions  of
Oregon and Washington.     There
are a dozen choices regarding the
route the traveller may select,  a
825 circle,  or ever-widening ones
until he reaches the $45 maximum.
With Vancouver, Victoria, New
Westminister or Nanaimo, as the
objective point, tbe traveller may
arrange his transportation so as to
touch snch points of interest as
Portland,  Seattle,   Spokane,    the
Oast cities, Arrow and Kootenay
lake points, as well as many interior towns.    Passengers holding
transportation as above may secure
side trip tickets from Revelstoke
to Glacier, Field, Lake Louise or
Banff at special rates.   These tours
will be in effect June 1 and with a
return limit set at October 31.���

Stoned by the Unco Guid
The Human Soul Development
corporation of Detroit, was formed
a year ago feo take care of Christine
Neilson, 17 years old, after four
business men had read the newspaper account of her arrest as a
street-walker. They met the judge
before whom she was to be tried,
and arranged to have her live with
a minister in Chatham, Ont. She
went willingly, and was making
good progress in school until her
story got about. Then all her
new friends dropped her. Soon
afterwards she disappeared, and
when one of the men who had be
friended her found her leading the
old life in Toronto he could not
persuade her, for all her dejection,
to go back and try again. The
Human Soul Development corporation has closed its books.
The Eternal Mother-In-Law
The legs of a new hobby horse
are on separate rockers and the
front ones are so mounted on pivots
that a rider can make it travel
over a floor and guide its movements.
She had stayed so frequently
with her married daughter as to
cause quarrels between the latter
and her husband. She came again
���and found her daughter on the
doorstep in tears.
"I suppose George has left yon,"
she sniffed.
"Yes"���sob.      ��� ���
"Then there's a woman in the
case?" she asked, her eyes lighting
dp expectantly.
"Yes"���sob.
"Who is it 6he demanded.
"You!"���sob.
"Good gracious! I'm sure I
never gave him any encouragement!"

The world will probably depend
upon alcohol (of the non-drlukable
kind) more and more as time goes
on, says Dr. Alexander Graham
Bell. "We can take coal out of a
mine, but we can never put it back.
We can draw oil from subterranean
reservoirs, but we can never refill
them again. We are spendthrift?
in the matter of fuel." Alcohol
for fuel, says Dr. Bell, can be made
from sawdust, from cornstalks,
from weeds, and even from the
garbage of our cities. "A great
field of usefulness is opening up for
the engineer who will modify our
machinery to enable alcohol to be
used as the source of power.
War Reduces Insanity
War as a palliative of insanity is
a theory unfamiliar to most people,
but we have no reason to doubt
the conclusions of Dr. Oswald, of
Glasgow Lunatic Asylum, on the
matter. One phase of the snbject
is instructive and significant.
This is "the removal of the powerful effect of poverty on the mind,
and its replacement by the higher
standard of living and remunerative
employment." Poverty and unemployment are thus by medical
testimony more fertile causes of insanity than war. That is a lesson
to be borne in mind when the war
is over.��� London Globe.
Sausage
Sausage is a round, fat, unsentimental article of indigestion.
It is the father of all warets-
buck, liver and weinie. Its grandfather is bologna. And its grandmother is more bologna.
Sausage is of two kinds, trammelled and untrammelled. Trammelled sausage wears a thin spring
overcoat the year round and comes
a la necklace. Untrommelled
sausage is sold by the pound and
served in solita-res.
Trammelled sausage is wild.
That why its trammelled. This is
evidenced by the fact that it will
stand so much cooking and then
its bursts its bonds.
Untrammelled, or tame sausage
just sits and sizzles.
Joyfully Answered
The kindergarten had been
studying the wind all the week-
its power, effects, etc.,���until the
subject had been pretty well exhausted. To stimulate interest the
teacher said, in her most enthusiastic manner:
"Children as I came to school
today in the car, something came
in through the doorway and softly
kissed me on the cheek. What do
you think it was?"
And the children joyfully answered,   "The conductor!"
