Duncan   Ross   died suddenly  in

prise to his many friends in-Green-
wood   and   the Boundary,.   His
identification with the early, days
of Greenwood is well-known by all
old-timers.   He was popular with
all classes and a.man, w.ith.a..ra-[nd
that was broad and generous., in
every way.    The  Province  says
that the news_ was a shock- to a
wide circle of intimate friends, not
only here, bat throughout the province.   To say that his loss will be
sincerely mourned is scarcely an
adequate expression of ihe sentiment of those with whom he was
associated.   Having taught school
in Victoria in the early days; having latter conducted the Boundary

aldermanic   chair in Greenwood;

It will be 225 years next Monday since King Billy put the orange

If the United States and other
neutral countries cannot stop the
present debacle of blood and misery in Em ope, they have the power
to refrain from helping to keep it
in prolonged operation.
In the United States one industrial worker is killed every 15
minutes, and one injured exery
10 seconds. Thafe country needs
more cautions and careful workers,
and it also needs a government
compensation fund.
Tx B. C. there are 400 billion
feet of merchantable timber ready
for cutting. At $10 a thousand
feet, the lumber from that heap of
trees would bring four billions of
dollar?, enough to run a European
war for several months. It is a
great asset for.this province/
_ Tiik trench fighting in France
and Belgium has developed among
the wounded a disease culled gas
gangrene. For 2,000 yeais the
land in those countries has been
nnder cultivation, and supported
many kinds of domestic animals.
This has filled the soil with gas
producing germs that will cause
very serious illness when introduced into wounds. Many soldiers have been inoculated while
lying wounded for hours in the
muddy trenches, as they cannot
bo always taken to dressing stations as poou as they are hurt.
Our Own Paving
Canada has millions of acres of
the finest timber in the world, and
the men and the mills to handle it.
Many of.our woods are not used
for certain purposes because they
have not been tested for their usee.
Sometimes  we have actually imported woods when we had better
kinds at home but did not know it.
To make the best use of our native
woods the Dominion   Department
of the Interior has established in
connection     with    the    Forestry
Branch a forest product laboratory.
This  institution  is constantly at
work testing woods for paper making, building,  furniture etc.   An
investigation of the use of wood
for block   paving   has  just   been
completed and the results issued
in a pamphlet entitled  "Treated
Wood-Block Paving."   This gives
the latest facts and figures in regard  to wood paving in  Europe
and Ameiica and  removes many
misconceptions.      Ife    shows    tbe
points to be guarded to secure the
best results.    All citizens interested in wood-block paving may have
a copy  of tbis pamphlet sent free
to them by writing to fehe Director of Forestry, Ottawa.
B. C. Molybdenite
Great activity prevails around
the Galena Farm, at Silverton,
where a 100-ton concentrator is in
course of erection. The Galena
Farm was bonded by Patsy Clark,
of Spokane, a short time before his
death, and his son is now carrying
on the development and other
work incidental to placing the
property on a shipping basis. The
property was secured by the Clark
interests frow A. W. McCune, of
Salt Lake City, who owned it for a
number of years.
Of the zinc shippers of this district the Hewitt probably is the
most fortunate, as that property is
said to have a contract with the
Empire Zinc which provides for
the handling of the Hewitt zinc
output until the year 1917. The
Surprise has a contract also, but it
expires at the end of the present
year. The contract hold by the
Rambler-Cariboo is reported to
expired only recently. Because of
b6ing shipped ore in excess of capacity the American smelters are
not buying any more in this field
unless forced to do so by a contract.
One of the promising properties
near Ferguson is the I. X. L.
group, owned by Otto E. Olson
and Charlie Olson. The group
consists of two claims situated on
Brown creek, and it is an extension of the Morning Star. Average assays give value of Ik oz. in
gold, 40 oz. silver and 84 per cent,
lead. The main development consists of 160 feet of drift on the vein,
and there id one foot of ore showing in the face, at a vertical depth
beneath the surface of 100 feet.
Eight or nine hundred feet of trail
is required to connect with the
Brown creek trail, which leads
over the summit. From the summit the ore. can bo rawhided to
Trout Lake, six or seven miies
distant.
A deal was completed, here on
Monday, Juno 28th, whereby C.
Lind and Wm. Ryan, of this city,
disposed of theKaslo group of claims
to Messrs J. E. Slawson and J. M.
Wolbert, of Spokane, with whom
are associated as purchasers, L. H.
Borop, of Jamaica, Iowa, and H.
Park, of Kaslo. The property is
situated about seven miles up the
South Fork of Kaslo creek, and is
in the neighborhood of the Flint
and Martin groups. One of the
claims is said to have a ten inch
showing of high grade galena, and
the new owners are planning npon
commencing development -forthwith, and may possibly ship ore
during the summer. Messrs Park
and Wolbert have been working on
the preliminary arrangements for
the deal during the past few weeks.
Mr. Borop will be in charge of
work at the mine.���Kaslo Kootenaian.
The Daily Mining Record, of
Denver, says: ''Western mine-,
are being operated npon a com
mendable business basis to a great
er degree than ever before. In
vestors have become educated to
the fact that every Tom, Dick and
Harry is nofe qualified to successfully run a mine; that something
more is envolved than the mere
digging of a hole in the earth.
They have learned that mining is
as much a profession as law or
medicine, and that a mining engineer must acquire an education,
reinforced by practical experience
along special lines. No shoe manufacturer, for example, would
place an unlettered sailor in charge
of his business; nor should a saining company entrust its affiairs to
equally unskilled management.
Yet in previous years mining enterprises suffered from just such
absurdities."
In view of the high prices that
have been ruling for molybdenite
there has been a great deal of talk
about developing molybdenite deposits in British Columbia and exporting the ore. This mineral is
one of the most common to be found
here, but attempts to mine and
ship it in the past have not been
attended with success outside the
two shipments sent from a deposit
on Lost creek, south of Sheep
Creek, in the Neteon Mining Division. At one time it was supposed
thafe the molybdenite deposits in
Highland Valley, south of Ash
croft, might prove of commercial
value, and shipments were made
but   without satisfactory results.
"Molybdenite is found in almost all the ore bodies tribuiary to
Howe Sound; on Texada Island,
where it is associated with copper
ores; in Slocan, where it is found
in veins carrying Bilver-lead ores;
in Rossland; in East Kootenay;
near Nelson; at Grande Prairie in
the Kamloops district; in Cariboo
and Yale, and at Portland Canal.
Nearly all these ocenrences, however, show tbe mineral in crystals
and pockets too small to be profitably handled by hand sorting, and
their generally amorphous character is unfavorable to mechanical
concentration. Certainly there is
no standard method for treating
such ores and each deposit has to
be considered on its own merits.
"A high grade product is required by purchasers, 90 per cent.
being the standard. Below that
the shipper is penalized, as in the
case of zinc ore, and owners do not
as a rule accept any thing under
80 per cent. Some of the largest
British users have their own sour
ces of supply in Norway and else
where. Australia has been an important seipper, but the ore shipped
from that country occurs under exceptionally favorable conditions,
being in massive form. Another
feature of molybdenite not usually
understood, is that it should be free
from copper, bismuth and arsenic,
which destroys its value in hardening Bteel. The price of molybdenite averages about $550 per
ton, but Bince war broke out tbe
demand for it for hardening strel
used in heavy gnns, and for use
with explosives in which it arrests
deterioration and prevents explosions from spontaneous combustion, has rnn the price up to $3500
a ton.
"If it can be found in a massive
condition bo as to be economically
sorted np to a grade "of from 80
per cent, to 90 per cent, a ready
market can be found for the mineral, but the price has been receding of late and will return feo normal with peace conditions as the
demand is then very limited."--
E. A. Haggen in/The Province.
For Campers
The first ingredient in conversation is truth, the next good sense,
the third good humor, and the
fourth wife.���Sir William Temple,
Forest fires can he pvevenfeecl by:
Never leave a camp fire until it
is ont.
Never make a camp fire in
leaves, rotten wood, or against a

Never   burn  brush,   grass

Your Neighbors Keeper
' I am not my neighbors keeper," you say. Wrong, brother,
wrong���you are your neighbor's
keeper. You have it within your
power to instil the doctrine < f
brotherly love iuto the heart of
your ueighbor, to keep before his
miud the higher and nobler thiugs
of life, to make of him a living
monument of what man should be.
There ia no man but what values
the good will of his neighbors, and
all men strive to retain that good
will to the end, for it is a universally accepted fact that your neighbor comes the nearest of all to
knowing you as you are. And
while your neighbor may not
speak of them, he sees your good
points and your bad ones, and
they are impressed upon his mind
even to the most minute and trivial details.
Hence it becometh all the more
incumbent upon you to so regulate
your life that your neighbor may
find nothing therein to divert his
mind from the path that leads to
uprightness and the right living.
Cultivate your neighbor, give him
a friendly word and a worldly
boost, teach him to feel thai you
are his "neighbor," and not simply
the man across the way." And aB
you act toward him, so will he in
time reciprocate. And if your
acts be uplifting and. of a* high
moral tone, he in time may seek
your level, with its enlightened
atmosphere  and its lofty   ideals.
Yes, you are your neighbor's
keeper, brother. Let your stewardship be above approach.
