Every merchant ship which puts
to sea should be armed, and not
with guns so mounted as to fire
astern but with guns to fire in all
directions, The amusement of the
German submarines would then
become a very dangerous and expensive one. For a submarine
Once hit is a submarine lost. And
the beet method of meeting submarine attacks is to steam straight
at the enemy, using the ram, but
supplementing this with the gun.
And for this reason; Gunfire compels the enemy to submerge. On
the surface the new submnrines
run probably eight to ten. On the
surface they can out-manoeuvre
anything but a fast warship. Submerged they must either "get out"
or go to the bottom, as the trap
can outmanoeuvre them. ��� London

News From The Front
James "Warbnrton, of fehe 102nd
Battalion, has the following to say
in a letter to S. T. Larsen of Rock
Creek, of date of Dec. 8th, 1916:
"On behalf of George Green and
myself I wish feo thank you and
the rest of our friends for presents
of chewing tobacco and cigs., it
came in just right. You can hardly know what it is to be without
something and longing for it, for
days and nights and then get it.
It makes the world look brighter.
We have been through a hard time
of ife. We first of all fought in
Belgium, and then moved to the
French fronton the Somme. In
this part we suffered most, poor
Ed. Sparks was fehe first of our
bunch to fall. Ife was the first
time we went over. By going
over I mean, we left our own
trenches and captured Fritz'. You
will see by the papers about our
victory. The next fight, poor Tom
Cave was killed, hit by shrapnel.
I buried him myself, he lies about
20 yards from where he fell. He
went out to help an officer and got
it himself. The 54th Batt. is with
us in our Brigade. I heard that
Hugh McGraw waB killed. Billy
Jones was wounded in the leg, on
the Somme, bufe I don't know how
bad. I think he was sent to England. Jo�� Lamping is still O.K.
Big Chris Eaton is sitting along-
of me, while I write this, and wishes to be remembered to all his
friends. I have been into everything the BattaHon has been in,
but am still well. I have had my
clothes cnt even to my undershirt^
pants cut across and knock down
with high explosives, but not a
wound. "Gee" it would be fine
to be back home again. I have
slept in my clothes since August.
We have been under shell fire all
the time, with fehe exception of
about three weeks."
If you are sending anything else,
send snuff. It seems like begging.
Give my kindness regards to all.

Hun Spy System Blocked
That spies of Germany have
been very active among ub for the
pasfe ten years cannot be denied,
but in this, the third year of war,
Great Britain may certainly congratulate herself upon the possession of a very adequate and effective system of counter-espionage
and, indeed, upon having secured
a veritable stranglehold upon the
enemy's spies, writes Wm, LeQuex
in the Weekly Scotsman.
To the average man or woman
the working of thelntelligence Department of both branches of the
service is shrouded in mystery, as
ife must obviously be.
The discovery of the "Spy's
post office'' in the Caledonian road,
London, in 1915, was a most fortunate incident, because letters
sent there from Germany to be re-
forwarded to spies were intercepted
and copied. They gave us the
clue to the existence of a very remarkable state of affairs, and revealed this identity not only of the
spies amongst us, but also showed
that German military desperadoes
had been despatched to England in
humble guises, but with special instructions to carry on certain
sinister work, quite distinct from
espionage. These Huns were
raiders whose hope it was to strike,
on the outbreak of war, sudden
and deadly blows: with explosives
and by other means,; with the object of crippling our naval and
military organization. For a time
they constituted, a very grave menace to our country. What blows
they actually struck cannot here
be revealed. Certain disasters
were, rightly or wrongly, attributed to them.

Valuing Human Life
Sunday work has been Btopped in
tl.i> English, munitions factories,
not nut of difference to religious
principles, but for business reasons. Ifc has been found that no
more work can be done by the
average man in seven days than in
six. In the long run, even less is
got through with, on account of ill
health and a shortened period of
productivity on the part of the
winker.
This is a promising decision.
Even if the worker could be
���sixfededc-d up" for a time, and
then "scrapped," men are no longer regarded as machines. It is
well to have this recognition of the
v..lue of human life at a time when
so many lives must be spent for
tbe sake of one thing dearer. A
sense of values and a recognition
of human limitations were never
11.ore needed than now. Long ago
England discovered thafe child
:._h_.i' is a criminally wasteful
economy. This is another step in
the same direction.
Exceptional workers along certain lines say proudly that they
m-yer -want a holiday. Others insist that a twenty-hour day is possible. The scientific mind -should
know better than to generalize
from a single instance. Skeptical
folk find some [.difficulty in believing quite literally these tales of the
superman. There are different
kinds of work. Play, a wife has
said, is work that one is not obliged
to perforin. Varied or original
work carries its - own recreation
with it. But mechanical work,
which involves endless repetition,
comes in another category, and requires different conditions. Now
thafe common sense has come to the
aid of sentiment, it will gefe them.
After all. it is hard to make any
fundamental improvements on the
Ten Commandments.���Vancouver
Province.
in most of the game consists of
swallowing water, and comes to
enjoy hugely the battle of the
waves. From Holland, Russia,
Norway, Germany and Great
Britain the enthusiasm for skating
has spread like a contagious fever,
aud even primitive man knew what
it was to tie the hone;, of an
animal to his feet lo accelerate bis
progress over the ice-bound landscape. Would the sophisticated
and effete world citizen of today go
back to the simple life of the cavemen of a noithern clime, he has
but to put on skates and glide fast
and far over the rink, frozen pond
or stream to the tune of the
swishing, flashing steel.���Kossland

The Kamloop:-. Stand.-rd-Sentinel
reports the formation of a syndicate for the acquisatiou of the
Williams estate, better known as
the "Branch Ranch," located at
the junction o_f Cms and Dead-
man's Creek, with the idea of
working the name for placer gold
deposits. The tract of land is
composed of 1,049 acres and it is
understood that the consideration
was in the neighborhood of SSO,-
000. Prospecting work has been
done on the property for some
time, several holes having been
put down to a depth of fifty feet.
Although the whole property is
heavily mineralized the company
will work it as a straight placer
proposition and will reduce the
mineral bearing sands right on the
ground by a chemical process. Assays have shown platinum. ��f 82,-
600. to the ton, gold $1,200 per ton
and mercury .6160 a ton. The
company has about two miles of
ground along Dead man's creek
and will start-operations in the
spring with a force large enough
for the preparatory work and increase the number of employees as
fast as conditions will warrant.
Mr. G. N. Burlock, of Savonia,
will have charge of the work.
A copper strike that is now
creating considerable interest in
the north-east Kootenay has just
been made on the middle fork of
the Spillimachine river, 22 miles
from tbe Kootenay Central railway. The vein uncovered is 10
feet wide, aud the ore shoot shows
a fraction over three feet of pay
that runs from 24 to 33 per cent
copper, and carries some gold. A
carload of this ore has been taken
out and a ton has been packed to
the railroad for smelter test.
O. H. Walker died at the hospital in Princeton on the morning of
January 1. He was ill only a few
days, and death was due to pheu-
monia.    Deceased was form an  of
tht. tunni'l work at C..vj.j>.':- Mountain, taking the position formerly
occupied by A. L. lYt'-rs. Hi*
remains wt re embalmed and shipped to Stillwater, Minnesota. He
was -19 years of age, and e.uim to
Copper Mountain from Salt Lake
City.
Small showings of good ore
has beeu found on the Amargona,
on Rocher de Boule Mountain,
Hazelton district. On this mine
a crosscut tunnel had been driven
1G0 feet, with about 200 feet to
drive before the main vain is likely
to be tapped. A drift on a cro:-s
vein has been run 100 feet. E. P.
Spalding, a representative of Spokane capital is operating this   mine.
It is reported that F. dishing
Moore, former Washington State
mine inspector, and Clarence Cunningham have taken a bond and
lease an the Van Roi group, near
Silverton from the English owners.
The property is equipped with a

Electric Smelting
The Department of Mines, in an
estimate of the steel production of
Canada in 1916, puts tlie total at
1,454,000 short tons, an increase
of some 42 per cent over the figures
of 1915. It is added that during
the present year over 43,000 tons
of steel ingots and castings came
from electric furnaces, . Electric
smelting has long been known to
be a scientific possibility. Iu
Sweden, where much attention
was given to experiments, it was
gradually developed into a commercial possibility. The record in
Canada now announced suggests
that the goal may have been reached.���Montreal Gazette.

BOUNDARY FALLS
we wink we wash the eye, says
the Popular Science Monthly for
January. Up above each eye is a
;iny; water bag called the tear
.-.laud, and ill! the time we are
uvake it makes tears. When the
['rout of the eye feels itself becoming a Httle too dry or dusty a com-
cnunication is sent for a supply of
moUture. The eyelid then comes
down with a tear inside it to wash
clean the front of the eye. This is
the most gentle aud perfect washing in the world.
After Effects
Gives The Eye a Bath
Every few seconds we wink both
our eyelids at once, although hot
purposely. If we stop wiukiug
our eyes become uncomfortable
and gradually cease to work as
they should. When the eye is
open the front of it is exposed to
dirt and dust aud is apt to become
so dry that a painful singing sen
sation results, or w.ould do so if
constant moisture were not provided to cleanse and soothe the
tissues. ���.   .  	
As a matter of  fact,  each  time
The old lady who was "doing"
the hospital approached a worried-,
looking "Tommy," who seemed to
be deep in thought.
"Good-day, my dear man," she
said, kindly. Aud were you
wounded in the big push?"
"Ob, no, mum," replied the
hero, with a fed-up-answering-
silly-questions grin. "It's like
.his, mum. I was at the shooting
range, aud some idiot accidentally
loosed oft' a bullet, which went
through my leg and killed. McjBtag*

back."
"Nevermind," said the dame,
"you will soon be bptter."
"That's what's worrying me"
groaned Tommy. "I'll be .court-
martialled then, 'cos they say that
it was through me McHaggis was
shot."
