however was Only six grams, or

The Metal Markets
Copper has reached tho 'highest
market price since 1907, being
quoted at 27c per lb. in New York.
This means an addition to the
value of the present copper production of .British Columbia as
compared with a year ago of over
810,000,000; and raises the value
of the present copper production to
over $20,000,000 a year.
Silver has risen to 57c per oz.,
which increases the value of production by an amount at the rate
of 8400,000 a year better than the.
prices ruling four months ago.
On the other hand the Montreal
price of lead, on which British
Columbia lead "producers now accept settlement, bas dropped a cent
a lb. within the last month.
The contract made by the munitions department of Canada on behalf of the British and Canadian
Governments, with the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company on a basis of 15c per lb. for
zinc appears to have the remarkable effect of regulating the American zinc market, as immediately
this contract; was entered .into
American zinc which had been
controlled by German-American
firms, dropped from the arfcifically
high prices that it had reached due
to the manipulation of these firms
with a view to holding up the
Allied governments in their munition requirements. The price now
hangs around the figure set for
Canadian supplies. The policy
has had the effect of saving the
Allies many millions of dollars in
tbe cost of munitions.���Province
Smelting Industry
Speaking at Spokane, F. Keffer,
M. E., formerly manager ��� of the
B. C. Copper Company, made
some pertinent remarks showing
the .value of the smelting industry
in the einploynaent of labor, as a
customer for the railways and as a
market for the merchants and
farmers of the province. He stated
that the Granby and British Columbia Copper companies had,
in the period of their operation.*,
paid $6,616,000 in dividends. The
Granby company bad smelted 11,-
000,000 tons and the B. C. Copper
company 4,000,000 tons of ore.
"The cost of the mining and treating had been about three dollars
per ton which meant that no less
than $45,000,000 had been expended by these two companies in
their operations. Of this 20���per
cent, had been spent for coal and
coke; 15 per cent, in freight; 25
per cent for power and supplies
and 40 per cent for labor.

The following furnish a comparison between the quantities of
the different metals used in the
manufacture of the 22,000,000
for which orders have been placed
in Canada, with our production of
such metals used in 1913:
Steel used, 400,000 tons. Iu
1913 it was estimated that the
production of iron ore in Canada,
307,634 tons, did nofe exceed 5 per
cent of tbe conntry's requirements
of iron in that year.
Zinc used, contained in brass,
11,200,000 pounds. No zinc wa=s
refined in Canada in 1913, but ihe
exports of metallic zinc in ore
shipped to slightly over 7,000,000
pounds.
Copper used, 55,000,000 pound.1.
The.... total production in 1913 was
about 77,000,000 pounds, and all
of it was exported for refining.
Lead, 101,750,000 pounds. The
production in 1913 was about 37,-

Examinations for the term ending Jannary 31st. 1816* were set
throughout the school, and tbe. results are very satisfactory in most
cases. In the entrance Class, the
high marks obtained by many of
the pupils are the result-of the
pupils' diligence and interest, in
their work: Higher marks would
have been obtained by. some pupils
if they had themselves made a
bigger effort. It is essential that
the pupils attend regularly, and
punctually to school, as otherwise
no effort, however great, in fehe
part of fehe teachers, can be erown-
ed with success. The Principal
would welcome and appreciate tbe
co-operation of the parents in a
careful and regular supervision of
the home studies assigned to the
pupils. In this way a beneficial
and close connection can be made
with the home and the school,
and still better results obtained.

<������ -. British Columbia is now
> j.ding over epsom salts at the
rate of -0 tons per week from
Spotted Lake in the Okanagan district.
This lake, which gained its
name from its similarity in appearance to a leopard's hide, is a
natural deposit of magnesium sulphate or epsomite, the epsom salts
of commerce. It has been located
for years, but until very recently
only the Indians and animals have
taken advantage of the curative
properties of the deposits which it
contains. Its spotted appearance
is caut-ed by numerous springs
wbic-h bring from somewhere in
the bowels of the earth the solution of salts which are precipitated
around their aperatures in the familiar white crystals.
The deposit is situated on
Kruger mountain, near Keremeos,

his store of knowledge. It was a
halcyon happy three mouths that
he lingered there. One day with
Jim Gillis he was following the
speck of gold that led to a pocket
somewhere up the hill when a
chilly dreary rain set in. Jim was
washing and Clemens was carrying water. The "color" became
better and better as they ascended,
and Gillis, possessed with the mining passion, would have gone on
regardless of the rain. Clemens,
however, protested and declared
that each pail of water was his
last. Finally he said in his deliberate drawling fashion:
"Jim I won't cany any mere
water. This work is too disagreeable. Let's go to the house and
wait till it clears up.:'
Gills had just taken out a pan of
earth.
"Bring one more pail, Sam,"
he pleaded. "I won't do it Jim 1
Nob a drop. Not if I knew there
was a million dcllars in that pan!"
They left the pan standing there
and went over to Angel's camp,
which was nearer than their own
cabin. The rain kept on, and they
sat round the grocery and barroom
smooking and telling stories to
pass the time.
Meanwhile the rain had washed
away the top of the pan of earth
left standing on the slope of Jackass hill and exposed a handful of
nuggets���pure gold. Two strangers had come along and, observing it, had sat down to wait until
the thirty day claim notice posted
by Jim Gillis should expire. They
did not mind the rain���not with
that gold in sight���and the minute the thirty days were up, they
followed the lead a few pans further and took out $20,000 in all.
It was a good pocket. Mark
Twain missed it by one pail of
water.���Chicago Post.

About Float.
Float is not a periodical.
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled^with sketches and
stories of western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flush days of
Sandon; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead ; how a
parson took a drink at .-
Bear Lake in early days ;
how Jn8ti"e was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man outprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
roamings of a western
editor among the tender-
feet in the cent belt. It
contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Bend for
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,
postpaid to any part of the
world. Address all letters to

H e Does Not Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad."'
If there be, go mark, him well,
For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who never asks for trade,
By local line, or add displayed^
Cares more for rest than worldly gain.
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise,"
