The scarcity of ocean going tonnage, due to war conditions, is
directing attention to the natural

establish it now on a firm basis in
that province.

Mail service has not yet been

although it has been authorized

between postoffices and railway
stations. K. V. R. mail service
will probably therefore not commence for another week or two

Alice Arm Copper
With some of the finest specimens of silver ore ever brought to
Vancouver, Mr. B. Jones, a prospector and claim-owner of Alice
Arm, is down from the Portland
Canal district, The finest samples
iti Mr. Jones' collection are from
the Dolly Varden property, and
consists of native silver, brittle silver and ruby silver. They were
taken from a lead which was discovered about four years ago by
Ole Pierson and associates, and
bonded to a Chicago syndicate for
$50,000. The syndicate includes
some of the largest business interests of Chicago, including the Marshall Field estate. Final payment
on the bond was made last year,
after the purchasers had done considerable development work and
prospecting by diamond drilling.
It is claimed that the drills have
demonstrated rich ore in large
quantities, but this has to be
opened up by rjaeans of tunnels and
shafts before it can be extracted.
The Dolly Varden is located
near Kitsault River, about sixteen
miles from the head of Alice Arm,
which is the each branch of Portland Canal, A well-defined lead
has been opened up by surface cots
and preliminary tunnels. The
owners in the Fpring will construct
a wagon road to tha property from
salt water, so that machinery can
be taken in and systematic development started, as well as ore shipments commenced.
Running at nearly right angles
to the strike of the Dolly Varden,
and located abont three miles further np the river, is another extremely high grade silver property
which is owned by Don Cameron
and associates. The ore in the
two properties is very similar in
character. Mr. Cameron has
bouded this property to the Chicago swners of the Dolly Varden,
Alice Arm is noted among Vancouver mining men as being the
home of the largest copper lead of
whieh they have knowledge. This
was discovered by Mr. Cameron
while he was on a fishing trip up
the Kitsault. With the construction next year of a wagon road up
the Kitsault, development work on
this property will be initiated.���

The Forester
. There are foresters.whose vision
��� sticks in the woods and does not
pierce through to the fact that the
welfare of the people, not tho welfare of the community of trees,
must be thfi aim of the forester's
endeavor. Forests are only the
medium through which he works.
The most successful forester is the
one whose life and work contribute
most fully to the necessity, convenience aud pleasure of the greatest number of people, not necessary the one that grows the most
wood per acre in-the shortest time.
���Dubois.
vicinity were surprised to see come
riding up the street^fiom the south
a company of   Coufederate   horsemen.    They wore uuarmed,   their
gray uniforms were   worn,   soiled
and often tattered, their  trappings
old and patched, they wore slouch
hats, and here aud there was a feather remaining of the   once  smart
and jaunty drooping plume of   the
Confederate   Cavalrymen,      They
were bronzed, browned Jand bearded.    They sab erect   and   came on
witli the splendid horsemanship for
which they were noted.    Upon the
collars of some of the gray  jackets
could still be seen   tho   faded and
tarnished gilt   stars,   the emblems
of the wearer'?  rank.
,   In front of them rode Lee.    His
two hands held the loosely   swinging reins and rested upon the pommel.    His head was bent   and   his
eyes were looking   straight   ahead
from uuder his downcast brow, but
they seemed to see nothing.
As the troops cantered up to hie
old home his horse stopped at the
gate and he aroused himself suddenly, as from a dream, and cast
his eyes upon the familiar windows
aud then around over the group of
gallant soldiers who had followed
his fortunes for four bloody years
and gone clown in defeat under his
banner.
The end of it all had come at
last. He threw himself from his
horse, and all of his companions
followed his action. They stood
hat in hand, with an arm through
the bridle rein, while Lee went
from man to man, grasping each
baud, looking intently into each
face, as though he wonld impress
it upon his memory forever. Then
he turned and walked through the
gate and up the steps to his door.
As a servant opened the door he
paused, with his left foot upon the
veranda, his right upon the last
step, and looked back for the last
time. Not a word had been spoken
not a good-bye uttered. There was
no sound heard but that of sobs, as
these unkempt and grizzled heroes
of a hundred battles leaned their
heads against the shoulders of their
horses and wept.
Lee gave one look and broke
down at last. His hands were over,
his eyes, his frame shook with sobs
as he turned quickly and entered
his lonely house.
With the closing of the door behind him ended forever the dream
of the Southern Confederacy.
All Home Comforts
A stranded but still haughty
"leading lady" wbs obliged to put
up at a dilapidated country hotel.
She glanced frowningly about the
office, reluctantly signed the register, and took the brass key from
the proprietress. ' 'Is there water
in my room?" she demanded.
"Why, there was," replied the

J. S. CARTER, D. P. A,,
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad!"
If there be, go uiark hini well,
For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the 'millionaire..
The man who never asks for trade,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise."
Keep at it. There is only the
difference of one letter between
rest and rust.
