A Belgian soldier in a letter to
his sister, Mrs. Van Stoippen ot

"My last sojourn in the trenches
had been particularly hard. We
had got there in a frightful storni
and an icy rain, so thafe on arriving
we preferred to go to our trenches
under the threat of our enemies

200 yards from us) rather than
use fehe communication ways, filled
knee-deep with mod, which were
leading to ife. l
"As soon as I got; in my trench,
I started to clean ife,  trying feo get
most of fehe water and mad out
with a shovel, which took me several hours.
"Then three of us were having
our lunoh, cooking the meat on
fehe dry wood we had brought wifeh
ub, and drinking warm wine.
"It was about three o'clock
when I raised and walked back to
resume my work, five or six yards
from there. I had grown so need
feo fehe shells tha,fe, since long, I
was paying no more attention,to

did a few steps,  bnt I was lame

I saw they were torn; investigating

The lack of gold will probably

You can pay soldiers in script,
but it takes gold to buy supplies,
and-the Kaiser will soon be out of

The German baby killers flew
over England a few days ago, and
killed a few babies and old women,
by dropping bombs from their
Zeppelins. Such- cowardly and
dishonorable warfare has never
been known since civilization put
the fiist daub of veneer on its face.
Perhaps the Kaiser gives medals to
those of his soldiers who kill the
most babies and capture their
squares, teething rings, and milk
bottles.
B. C. Copper Co.
It is almost certain that when
the British Columbia Copper Co.
issues its annual report late this
winter, it will show. very import-
ant additions to ore reserves in the
new properties around Copper
Mountain.
A year ago the report showed
-5,000,000- tons-of ore,-an-increase
of 1,000,000 tons over the estimate
of the year previous. This ore is
said to average 1.87 per cent, copper and 60 cents per ton in gold
and silver. It is nearly twice as
rich in copper as the original properties, and nearly as rich in gold-
silver values. What is equally
important, the ores of Copper
Mountain furnish desirable sulphur for fluxing purposes and will
make an admirable mixture with
the Bulphur-lean old ores in the
company's smelter afe Greenwood.
There are also on Copper Mountain 4,000,000 tons of probable ore
running around 1.6 per cent, copper, as well as 4,000,000 tons of
possible ore not yet blocked out
-No. 1 drillhole, reported last
week to have passed through 150
feet of thickness of _i per cent,
ore, although it furnishes only a
fragmentary drillhole record, seems
destined to play an important part
in increasing the estimated tonnage
as well as fehe grade of ore available at the new Copper Mountain
property.
A concentrator will be built
when the railroad is completed to
Copper Mountain, and concentrates will be shipped to the Greenwood smelter. The concentrating
mill will be equipped with fehe oil
flotation process developed to so
high a stage of perfection afe Butte
Frederic Keffer, of Greenwood,
B.C., representing the B. C. Copper Co., has made a fp.vorable report on the Highland Valley copper
mines near Ashcro.t with the result that the claims have been
bonded on a two and a half year
lease for $100,000. A substantial
payment has been paid the owners.
This comprises the Sanson-Chate-
way-Ward- McAbee group. A
lease of this duration should give
the prospective purchasers ample
opportunity to test tbe mine in a
very thorough manner. We understand machinery will be placed
ou the greuud at an early date.���
Ashcroft Journal.
Poplar Creel-
Harry Hanson, of Poplar, who
was in town the other day, stated
that he and his partner have commenced operations on a galena
claim back of Poplar. They started in where an open cut had been
made by someone who had been
prospecting on that ground and
with the first shot opened up about
six inches of nice looking galena.
According to information furnished by S. H. Conners to a Kaslo
resident, the new company he represents is prepared to expend a
considerable amount on dredging
operations along the upper reaches
of the Lardo river in tbe vicinity
of Poplar. The new dredge will
operate on a steel hull ond will be
four times the size of the one that
has been worked with during the
past two summers. It will have
the best known methods of handling the big boulders that proved
such a hindrance to the Buschner
dredge. The scene of operations
will be on some placer ground clo3e

Big Horn Creel-
Frank Sketch, Ike Gillespie, E.
Vinall and Frank Forner returned
late Thursday of last week from
Big Horn Creek which lies from
80 to 100 miles west from Bur-
wash creek and about 280 or 300
miles from Whitehorse. They
were absent from town nearly two
months.
The party all staked claims on
Big Horn, but owing to not having
provisions to keep them there,
they did no prospecting, their
"grub" barely lasting them until
they could get back as far as Silver
on Lake Kluane where Harry
Chalmers had a general store and
where they stocked up for the trip
into town.
The party reports Ed Benson,
discoverer and original staker on
Big Horn, as at work on his claim.
He was building a cabin when the
quartette left him but he expected
to sink a shaft on his claim before
spring. Benson is there alone, his
nearest neighbor being on upper
Burwasb, fully 75 miles away.
Already forty claims have been
staked on Big Horn creek, twenty-
two of the forty having been staked
by Indians. Benson found considerable gold there last fall, hence
the stampede which followed.
