Smelter to Open
Reports from New York yesterday state that the British Columbia Copper company, the operating
subsidary of the Canada Copper
corporation, will resume production from the Mother Lode mine,
its oldest developed property, and
will blow in the Greenwood smelter, idle since August, 1914, between June 20 and July 1. It is
estimated that the company can
produce blister copper from its
own ores for Hi cents the pound,
and that if custom ores carrying a
Bufficient quantity of fluxing elements can be secured the production cost ban be reduced not less
than a cents pound.     r
The Copper mountain properties eventually will provide the
fluxing ores required in treating
the Mother Lode output, but as
development is'/but just begun it
probably will be several months before any considerable tonnage is
available from them. Of the Copper Mountain holdings only about
25 per cent is developed, but there
is said to be in sight 7,200,000 tons
of ore averaging 1.82 per cent copper and 40 cents in gold to the ton.
The Greenwood smelter, with its
three furnaces operating, to capacity, can produce 1,000,000
pounds of blister copper monthly,
but the normal output is approximately 750,000 pounds each
month. With copper at 19 cents
the pound the company should net
about $700,000 annually.���Spokane Eeview.

Ideas of a Plain Man
There is one true rule for beauty.
It is that the thing shall be perfectly adapted to its use.
A chair is a thing to sit in. The
most beautiful chair is the one that
is most sittable. Its color, shape,
material and ornament should all
be consistent with the purpose for
which a chair ismade.
A house is something to live in,
and the most beautiful house is,
therefore, the one which is most
liveable. One does not want to
live in a museum, a curiosity shop
nor a prison. As the ideal of home
is unity, so the ideal home-house
is of one room. Necessity demands that the rooms for sleeping,
bathing and cooking be isolated.
But the value of most modern
houses and flats is injured by tbe
subdivision  into too many rooms.
A plate is something to eat from.
Its beauty is wholly derived from
those elements in its shape, size
and adornment which adds pleasure to eating. One's aesthetic
is not agreeably moved by eating
steak or potatoes from a landscape
or person's face painted on bis
On the whole, beauty is a close
sister to usefulness, and should
{.row out of it, as leaves grow out

A Modern Reading
The following story is told by
Mr. Charles L. Swain, speaker 01
the Ohio House of Representatives:
"A little girl when she came home
from Sunday school, tried to tell
her parents something of what she
had learned.
"She was rather mixed in the
details, but clear as to the conclusion. 'After God created the earth'
she related, 'and the stars and tbe
animals, he created Adam, but
Adam became so lonesome that God
decided to give him some company.
So he put him to sleep, and while
lie slept,  God took his brains and
Amidst all the welter of blood,
of savagery and crime, one meets,
thank Heaven, deeds of self-devotion, intense humanity and the
true spirit of the highest form of
Christianity���the love of others
aud the efl'acement of self.
France has ever been a land of
heroic deeds, men and women have
given up wealth, position, even
life to help their neighbors or their
country. Jeanne d'Arc is merely
a type of the ideal womanhood of
France, as George Washington is
a type of the noblest of American
manhood. Let no one think that
the days of heroes aud heroines
are gone. The noble deeds of the
Red Cross nurses testify to the undying charity and devtion to the
following of Christ's teaching ever
present when tho call for help is
Iu France it has produced and
still produces and ever will produce heroes and heroines amongst
its manhood and womanhood, the
children of France have been numerous in all ages for their courage
and heroism. A few months since
a little girl of ten was standing in
the front row of a terrified crowd
watching the destruction of a house
by fire in a provincial town of
Franco. As is usual, several families lived nnder one roof, and the
eager face of the girl heroine was
seeking to find if all had been
saved when she heard a mother
with several children cry, "Where
is baby? My God, she is in her
cot!" She had to be forced back
to keep from entering the burning
building. In the confnsion a slim
little girl rushed into the house,
knowing where baby was, caught
it up and rushed through the smoke
and heat and placed it in its
mother's arms.
During the present terrible war
another little French girl has given
proof of courage and devotion that
has brought many a blessing on
her fair young head. Tha tale . i s
told by a private of the British
Royal Artillery and we faney that
many American little girls of Madeleine's age (the heroine's name)
will not only read with interest
this tale of her brave acts, but will
think why, should occasion present
itself, should I not also be a heroine?
Madeleine is of course not the
every-day girl of nine years of age,
for her courage is as conspicuous
as her kindness of heart. Just
fancy a child of nine carrying hot
coffee to a poor half starved and
frozen soldiers in the trenches; but
the terrible howling of -shot and
Bhell through which Rhe had to
pass to get to the trenches she
heeds not. Many a man would
not risk his life as Madeleine has
done daily on her mission of mercy.
Since the English press= have
give publicity to little Madeleine's
actions presents of all kinds have
been showered on her, but it was
the last thought, doubtless, of this
sweet little child that she was doing anything extraordinary, nor,
we are sure, did she look for any
reward, but would have been fully
repaid by a kindly smile and a
word of thanks.

This Rummy World
The longer I linger the morel
discern that this world of ours is a
darn queer concern.    It's a crime
to pick pockets, but  it's perfectly
right to  pick a man's wages  on
Saturday night;  for the laws are
constructed, wherever I been, that
the workers are made for the grafters of skin.    If you try to be honest you don't stand a chance; you
are sure to be known by the patch
on your pants.    If you steal a few
millions you are a person of note;
if you steal a ham bone the police
get your goat.    If you run around
naked, you're sent to the pen; if
you swipe some old clothing you
go there again.    If you murder in
war, then your  valor is  sung; if
you privately murder you're doomed to be hung.    If a girl sells her
virtue she's branded as vile; but
the rooster that bought it is met
with a smile.    If a man  tells the
truth, then the people get tired; if
he-tells them a myth,  why they
eay he is inspired.    It's a funny
old world  wherever you turn; it's
a devilish twisted and  darn queer
concern; it's badly ballpd  up and
it's all out of tune, and must be a
sight to the man in the moon.���

. "Hands np!" exclaimed the
husky robber.
But his order was quite unnecessary as all the travellers had their
hands well above their, heads, with
the exception of Sandy who was already unloading his pockets.

some money into his - friend's
pocket, "here's that gold piece I

A Talk on Liquor
The object of my discourse this
evening is liquor. To offer a man
liquor, some people say, is an insult���and yet ministers declare
that we should swallow an insult.
Then again, prohibitionists call
liquor an enemy, while the Bible;
states that we should love our
enemies, so what are you going to
do about it?
And yet cold water enthusiasts
have not got everything their own
way either. For instance, I've
seen many a jolly gathering around
a cafe table���but who's ever seen
one around a pump?
Last week I woke up one morning with a pain in my leg. The
doctor said it was water on the
knee. You have no idea how
disappointed I felt. After all the
stuff I had been drinking these
many years, to be told I had water
on the knee! I figured out that
the very least I should have on my
knee was sarasparilla, or anyhow,
ginger ale; but water���bah I
I'm glad to see that, some cities
are leading in the raform movement. For ingtance, in Denver
you can't get into a saloon on Sunday.    They're too crowded.
If you want to convince yourself
of the harmful effects of whiskey,
take two glasses, fill one with
whiskey and fill the other with
water. Then drop a worm into
each. The worm will live in the
water, but will die in the whiskey.
Therefore I say, if you've got any
worms in your system: that you
want to keep alive, drink plenty
cf water.
Everything in this world is calculated to arouse a thirst for booze.
So I'm not surprised that we are a
drinking nation. When we are
born, ain't we "raised on.' the bottle���" and when- we die don't we
finish a "bier"?. Even a court
room reminds us of a saloon. The
first command of the judge when
he takes his soat on the bench is:
"Order in the courtroom." And
for fear the man- about to be tried
doesn't here his next words are:
"Prisoner stand before < the bar."
And just think of the rivers that
are polluted by the refuse from
whisky distilleries being emptied
into them.    I can't remember the

A Snake of a Man
names of the rivers just now, but

mackerel and skates swim around
in.-���By Marshall P. Wilder.
Word From Home
Somebody poisoned my dog today,
Though he never did any one ill,
And so he is through  with   his
canine play
And his "wagglety" tail is still.
No more shall I walk in the fields
with him
Along at my side to jog.
And���Ldon't care if my eyes are
Sdmebody. poisoned my dog!
He was homely, I know, as a dog
could be,
And only a mongrel, too;
Bat 1 loved the old fellow and he
loved me.
As people and dog3 may do.
Nothing on earth could disturb his
Or his love and his faith befog,
And now he lies here at my feet,
in the dust.
Somebody poisoned my dog!
He crawled to my side and licked
my hand,
And then, with a gasp, he died,
And though some people cant understand���
I patted hie head���And cried.
For it isn't fanny to lose a friend
From off this earthly cog,
And he was loyal onto the end���
Somebody poisoned my dog!
I wonder how anyone could have
This poor little fellow harm;
Bat there he lies���his race is ran���
Though his body's still soft and
My life is lived on a peaceful plan,
My pace is a quiet jog,
Bat���I wish I could find the snake
of a man
Who poisoned my little dog.

A certain legislator in a certain well-
known state is said to have received the
following practical effusion from his
Husband, dear husband, come home to
me now,
I'n sniffing the odor of spring;
You've stayed long enough at the capital
You're much safer under my wing.
The old horse is pawing the stable like
The colt's in a terrible stew.
The small brindle heifer has got a white
And the cattle are bawling foi you.
The voice of your Betsy is cailing you
It's near the time to make soap;
And some of the women are saying my
I am giving you far too much rope.
They say there is desperate flirting up
With widows and maids not a few,
I havn't been kissed since the morning
y<ju left,
But, dearie, how is it with you?���Ex.

Said a whiskey flask to a cigarette,
t'd like to make a good-Sized bet
That I can get more scalps than you,
Although your victims ain't so few.
{.Aid the cigarette/tp the whisky flask,
Well that.s as easy as I could ask,'
For I give kids their downward start,
Then you pitch in and do your part,
They come to you with burning thirst
But I'm the one that see 'em first;
So mpBt of them should count tor me;
I'll take the bet, it's & cinche, d'y see.
Then the whiskey flask had this to say:
I never looked at the thing that way;
I must confess you spoke the truth,
'Tis you that tackles the foolish youth,
You fill his system with dopy smoke,
I mould him into a first-class soak;
We work together far too well
To quarrel even for a spell,
So the whiskey ^ask __i_d the cigarette
Shook hands and called off the bet,
And away they sauntered side by side
Hunting for victims both far and wide;
In every corner of the nation,
Partners in crime and ruination.
So there's our warning on the level,
Shun them as you would the Devil.
