Distance is everything when travelling; it is nothing when
telephoning.
When you travel you take time to get 'ready, and you subject yourself to a certain amount of convenience en route to
your destination. When you telephone, you simply go to the
other s-ide of the room and talk. It is a face to face conversation, with the elimination of every inconvenience.
Travelling, too, depends on the weather; you can communicate at any time by telephone.

The Canadians hate snipers. Secluded perhaps half a mile from
the trenches, where they could nofe

Writing   to   the   editor   of  the
Monthly Bulletin of The Canadian
Mining  Institute,   Major   A.   W.
Davis,   formerly    a   field   mining
engineer for the Consolidated Mining  and  Smelting  Co., Trail, and
well known throughout the Kootenay district  of British Columbia,
observes:    "I  note in  your July
issue a reference to the good work
of Canadian   miners  at  the front.
In connection   with  recent operations I may remark that although
the    war    correspondent,    Philip
Gibbe (in his articles published in
the London   newspapers early   in
June(,   gave  the   Austrelians  the
entire credit for the  blowing up of
Hill 60,   the Canadian   engineers
essentially    were    responsible   for
this successful operation.    A censorship which  permits  misleading
and incorrect articles of this  kind
to be printed should not  object  to
the publication of a correction.    It
is only due to the Canadian miners,
who did the work, that in Canada,
anyway,     the    truth    should   be
known.    "We  over here are   prepared to carry on without any advertising,   but it  is  pretty   thick
when they have mass  meetings in
Melbourne   to  celebrate an  Australian achievement which was not
an Australian  achievement at all.
All   the   same   they   cannot    be
blamed.     The  fault is  with   the
correspondent    who   disseminated
inaccurate information."
more  than  four acres of turnips, |
parsnips,  beets  carrots  and other
vegetables.    The men are intensely interested in tha scheme, and so
is the  manager,   who,   when practicable, visits the farm daily.    The
labor   performed   is   on  an equal
basis; the  company  provided  the
land and seed; then  how will  the
crop be divided?   This is answered
by a notice posted in a conspicuous
place setting forth  that the products of  the farm  will be divided
in  proportion  to  the  size of the
family of members participating���
nothing could be simpler than this,
and none could dispute its fairness.
"The farm,   with  its   acres   of
potatoes and all manner of other
vegetables, is a fair prospect; and
I asked Tom Jones to estimate the
probable crop yield.    He answered
in characteristic fashion that if a
kind Providence would continue to
send the sunshine there would be
no hungry children  in Cobalt this
coming wiDter; moreover, after the
harvest the camp would  be in a
position lo supply  more  outward
freight in form  other than silver
bullion and concentrate,   for the

This well-appointed hotel, in Kootenay's oldest mining town,
is a pleasant home for all who travel. It is delightfully situated,
and from its balconies the vista of lake and mountain scenery
is grandly magnificent: It is but a few yards from the famous
and health-giving hot mineral water springs. Tourists, drummers, miners, muckers, millionaires, and the general public
are alike welcome at this hostelry. The rooms are cheerful,
the meals tasty, and the spirits in the bar are fit for the gods,
while the cigars are a delight to those who flirt with My Lady
Nicotine.    Come for a day, and you will come forever.

If properly developed, the natural resources that surround Greenwood, would almost make it look

Tnis year the potato crop in the
United States amounts to more than
447,000,000 bushels. With a little
buttermilk and some pie, the Yankp
���should pull through the   winter.
We have edited The Ledge for
24 years, and have never suffered
from starvation. Few bditors can
surpass this record in the rapidly
shifting changes of the great and
glorious west.
It is a puzzle to tell how the
Rossland Daily Miner supports
Rossland. The editor must be rich
and glad to run a paper for recre-
atiou and*the pleasure of smelling
ink fresh from the keg.
Tiie high prices for bacon and
flour are mild, compared to the
price of canned peas. In Ontario
the farmer gets from 834 to S36 a
ton for green peas. The consumer
pays 10 cents a pound for canned
peas, or ��200 a ton. He really pays
8300 a ton, as a can of peas is almost one-third water. This excessive profit should be cut down
by the   government.
This year some mines have had
gardens attached to them. A
writer in the Monthly Bulletin
tells how it was done at Cobalt,
Ontario:
"The manager of the Buffalo
mine, Tom R. Jones, saw here a
chance to garden on a fairly large
scale. His first step was to organize the Watash Farmers' Association from among the mine employees. Every employee is eligible
for membership, and the only ex
pense for which members are liable
is the cost of keeping one man at
work on the farm for a specified
time throughout the sunamer.
The laud was prepared and all the
seeds purchased by the company.
Each member is required to do 50
hours work during the summer,
and his interest is negotiable and
and may be sold to any other employee.
"In July there were 57 working
menbers, divided into squads each
with a duly appointed leader. In
order to facilitate the work a 15-
passenger car is provided for the
free transportation of the members.
The driver collects no fares, he being also a member, expecting to
share in the Fall 'clean- up.' They
planted 240 bushels of potatoes*
2000 Brussels sprouts, 10,000 celery
plants, 5,500 cabbage plants, 650
tomato   plants,   and   in   addition
Army Methods
To sterilize feces and urine use 5
per cent copper sulphate, 2 to 3 per
cent cresol, or 4 per cent chloride
of lime.
Lice are removed from the hair
by rubbing in equal partB of ker-
osine and olive oil. This is left on
24 hours and then washed off.
Benzine, kerosene and 10 per cent
acetic acid used singly are also
effective.
Lice in the clothing are removed
by a powder composed of 2 per
cent idoform, 2 per cent creosote
and 9G per cent napthalene. The
seams are smeared by mineral oil,
nine parts; soft soap, five parts;
water, one part.
The care of the feet is of the first
importance; Each regiment has
at least one expert chiropodist.
For corns daily painting with a
solution of 60 grains of salicylic
acid, eight grains of cannable in-
dica extract and one ounce of flexible collodion is done. After a few
days of this the corn is ready to be
removed.

"By rubbing elbows we erase
prejudicep and antagonisms. ' At
contact we find that the main difference between most of us is matter of accent, tailors, and table
manners; at heart we're pretty
much the same. Sectional dislikes
are founded upon hearsay far
oftener than experience. We believe the worst of those whom we
have not met. No one particular
town breeds supermen. Go soft in
your criticism of certain fellow-
citizens. You'll probably have ��
few of them for children in law
later on.

Baron Rhonda, Food Controller
of Great Britain, is considering the
fixation of the price of a 3J pound
loaf of war bread at 8 cents.    Thip
compares    with   11   cents for   1\
pound loaves in  many Canadian
cities.    That is, in  Britain,   btead
from Canadian wheat or flour after
travelling 3000 miles at high rates,
will sell at 5 cents a  pound   while
in  Canada the price is  7 and  8
cents and  often  more,  and   not a
submarine in sight.    This is a situation   for   the   Canadian    Food
Controller in seeking the remedy,
and if necepsary he will fix prices.
Bnt first he must be sure of all his
facta.    In  any    event,    however,
Canadians must eat less bread  and
-nbstitute   other   foods,    for   the
v.hole world is short of bread.
