Shipped To B. C. Copper
The Tip-Top mine, a short distance up the Phoenix gulch from
Greenwood, Bhipped a car load of
ore last weels to the B.. O. Copper
smelter. The above mine was
worked several years ago nnder
option by W. H. Sbeiod, of Seattle,
who after working the property for
sometime, abandoned it, leaving
what ore that had been taken oat
on the surface. Copper was selling
at that time at 13 cents, and that
price did not pay to ship Mr.
Sherod acquired controlling interest of this property last year,   and
Western News
recently sent his eon, H. H.
Sherod here to ship what ore was
on the surface, so as to find oat
whether it will pay to operate this
property under present conditions.
Several more carB will be shipped
as soon as the roads get in shape
for hauling by wagon.
Died In His Barber Shop
E. Matthiew. was found dead in
bis barber shop in Phoenix, on
Friday last. At the coroner's inquest it waB found that he died

brought to the notice of the authorities, that according to the evidence
at the inquest the deceased waB
supplied with liquor when in an
intoxicated condition. Wm. Lakeland, of Greenwood, the newly appointed coroner, condncted the inquest.

Forks,
A report from Vancouver says
that the Sheep Greek Bonanza
Mining Co., sitnated near the
Emerald mine, in the Kootenay
district, which is shipping 200 tons
of ore per week to Trail, has been
optioned to American interests for
$150,000. This is anticipated by
mining men to indicate renewed
activity in the Sheep Creek district,
as the Nuggett and Queen gold
mines are abont to resume operations. According to the terms of
the option taken by the United
States capitalists on the Bonanza,
two^shifts are to be continuously
employed during the period of the
bond.
The first lead concentrates produced by the new mill of the Slocan
Star Mines, Ltd., Slocan district,
have been spipped to the smelter.
This shipment contained 70 tons,
and has a value of $150 a
ton by estimate or $10,500. In the
process of concentration, 150 tons
of zinc were accumulated. Tbe
zinc has a net value of $25 to the
ton by estimate, or $3,750. Crude
ore was assembled at the same
time. The estimated total value
of the product, including the crude
ore, is in excess of $15,000.

Camp Destroyed by Fire
When Thomas Bozance and
James Fagan with their assistants
came to the surface for dinner a
few nights ago at SiwaBh Creek
near Yale, B. C, they found
neither dinner, cookhouse, bunk
house nor blacksmith shop. The
whole camp of the Emigrant gold
mine had been burned oat. Food,
clothing, tools and some fine furs
the men had got for friends in Victoria were all destroyed. Some fine
specimens of gold in bottles were
scattered and lost, says a Rossland
report.
In zero weather the snow-six
feet deep and with only their light
working apparel, the gold miners,
exhausted after their long day's
work and famished for food,
fought their way through the night
to the nearest camp, more than
two miles down the creek. From
there they came on to Yale the
morning after, where they were
able to get credit of new clothing,
food and camp supplies.
The fire is thought to have
started by a spark from the cookhouse stove. As the camp was uncovering an especially rich strike
involving some heavy work, all
hands, even the cooks and their
assistants, had gone down the
mine for the afternoon to assist
and get the first glimpse of the
new wealth.
Materials costing $1000 have
been Bhipped to replace the buildings destroyed, so that no time
will be lost in the development.

British Fleet Saved America
- Bat for the British fleet the
United States would have been assailed long ago. We have held
the ocean paths for the whole English-speaking world; so far as we
could have had perpetual peace
with Germany on tbe sole condition
of offering no obstacle to the destruction of the Monro doctrine.
So much for the essential troth of
the case as it concerns in principle
America just as much as the allies,
no matter what further steps
America may take or refuse to
take. It is the world-wide breadth
of the real things at stake which
gives the last phase of Armageddon
its sinister grandeur.���London Observer,

grant of $1,000 to the Canadian

rate of $100 a month for the remainder of the year.
An exchange says that the government is seriously considering

to his sanity.
George Jackson, who attended
a dance in Vancouver recently,
went home costless and possibly
hatless. Some person who evidently needed tbe satorial appurtenances removing tbe garments while
the owner tripped gaily over the

place in which these thefts occur.
Too Much Side
An officer of a Canadian unit
not yet sent overseas entered a
Winnipeg restaurant the other day
and the waitress led him to a table
which sat a private with a woman
companion. "Please show me to
another seat," said the officer; "I
don't care to sit at a table with a
private." "Excuse me sir," said
the private, rising. "I am a re;
turned soldier and I have seen 2?
months service at the front." Bufe
the officer: bad moved away.
;It is to be hoped there is not
much of that sort of thing among
officers of Canadian troops. A
man of this fellow's calibre would
stand about as much chance of success in handling a body of Canadian privates at the front as would
a tenderfoot on the back of a bucking broncho.
There ie no room for "side" of
that sort in the Canadian army,
where, .off parade, the private is
frequently in a better position
socially than bis superior in rank.
One cause of satisfaction is that
when men of this type get at the
front, if they ever do, they are cer-
tein to be "educated."���Calgary

The Use of Savings
Money is intended to be spent.
Ife could do no good, and, indeed,
would not be money if ife were
never spent. But spending ought
not to be uncontrolled. If ife were,
it would be mere squandering.
Every earner ought to divide his receipts into two parts���the part t<
be wisely spent as he goes along,
and the part thafe he puts aside for
spending some time in the future.
If everybody followed fehafe practice,
each home would have its own reserve fund, and general business
would hi iu a healthy state. The
current spending, though thuB
carefully regulated, would maintain trade in a good state of
activity, one steadily rising to a
higher level, for out of the accumulated savings of the people
the capital for new industries
would be constantly flowing, more
hands would be employed, and the
volume of wages reaching the people would be increased. The
workers who have so managed
their private economy as to maintain and bring up their families
acceptably and afe the same time
go on building up a savings account ;_re the very salt of the earth.
All their earnings are to be spent,
but not as fast as they are earned.
���Mail and Empire.
The Submarine Net
A submarine net is made of wire
rope, about as thick as a lead pencil, and the meshes are of great
size���about ten or fifteen feet
square. The net has floats on top
that keep bobbing up and down
like the float on a fish line and on
the bottom are weights that keep
the whole thing in a perpendicular
position. The submarine cannot
submerge to very great depths on
account of the pressure���200 feet
being about'the limitingjdepth. It
sails innocently along, therefore
until it pushes its nose into these
meshes. The net now trails along
on both sides of the submarine���
its progress revealing the fact that
something belOw is supplying the
motive power. Perhaps the net
suddenly stops; that means that
the hidden submarine has
stooped its navagators having
made^the horrible discovery that
they are trapped���or perhaps the
net.has*l>ecome twisted in the propeller. Under these conditions the
wise submarine rises to the surface,
It surrenders, becomes the property
of the enemy, and its crew made
prisoners. If it does not take
such r_etion one of two things will
happen. The enemy will wait upon the surface until the submersible comes up, or if it starts
moving the enemy will follow until the inevitable uprising. But
perhaps the snrface commander
gets impatient; in such a case he
can let a bomb down into tbe
water, which will explode when it
touches the roof of the submarine,
Of course, the submerged Germans
know that this bomb is likely to
drop at any minute; the "psychology" of f-nch a situation tends to
persuadt- the imprisoned crew to
eurrend.-r.���"World's Work.

was originally intended, but nowhere could I find among the several definitions that 'extended'
means 'long.' Yet it is a common
error. We say that a man 'anticipates' no trouble, when what we
really mean is that he 'expects' no
trouble. To 'anticipate' means to
be prepared for eventualities, if I
understand my dictionary. The
words 'whether'Jand 'if would not
be nearly so hard worked if they
were used when they should be.
I heard a man say the other day,
'I am not prepared to say if it is
right or wrong.' He probably
meant he was not prepared to say
whether it was right or wrong. We
say we will know tomorrow if we
can go, though we should say we
shall know tomorrow whether we
can go. Ife should not be hard to
keep these words in their proper
places. John Jones will go if he
can make satisfactory arrangements, and he will be able to tell
you tomorrow whether'jhe will take
one man or two.
"But do nofe gather from my remarks, gentlemen, thafe I am all
perfect; for I think I shall never
know exactly when 'should,'
'shall' and 'will' should be used.
But I do try to be careful never to
say 'can' when I mean 'may,'
which is a common error, also. In
my mind, too, there has always
been a sharp difference between
'rear' and 'raise.' I always like
to think of children being 'reared'
and hogs being 'raised,' 'Present
incumbent' is another case of super fluifey. If a man is the incumbent of an office, he is undoubtedly the incumbent at the present
time, so why waste good words in
saying, or good ink in writing, the
word 'present'?''. ��� Indianapolis

A WELCOME  HOME  TO   THE   RETURNED BOYS .
(Words by  Mrs.   Calvin  E.   Amarou,
sung by Mrs.  William  I.  B.  Fraser, of
Quebec.)
Tune:    Home, Sweet Home.
When   you   sailed    froin    our . shores,
Noble, brave-hearted men.
We bade God-speed and a "safe home
again."
You   have fought for   us   bravely defended your own;   .
We   now   bid   you   welcome   again  to
your home.
Refrain���
Home, home, sweet, sweet home !
You fought for your country;
You're now welcome home.
The   dear   lads   you left sleeping   far
from their shore
Now rest in The Kingdom, their journey
is o'er.
They,   too,  have  a  welcome as full  as
your own,
For   heaven's   gates  have opened and
gathered them home.
Home, home, sweet, sweet home !
..  They died for their country; . ..
They're now welcome home.
Too Late
A Swedish farmer, who lived on
bis wheat-farm in Minneasota, was
taken ill, and his wife telephoned
the doctor.
"If you have a therometer," answered the physician, "take hie
temperature. I will be out and
see him presently."
An hour or so later when the
doctor drove up, the woman met
him at the door.
"How is he?" asked the doctor.
"Veil," said she," I ban put the
barometer on him like yon tell me,
and it say 'Very Dry,' so I give
him a pitcher of water to drink,
and now he ban gone back to
work."

Float is not a periodical.
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
Ib filled with sketches and
Btories 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 justice was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man ontprayed 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. Send for-
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,
postpaid to any part of the
world. Address all letters to
