Interesting Event
A very pretty ceremony took
place in the Skating rink last
Thursday evening, when Mrs. J.
McDonell presented the "Greenwood Home Guard," with their
colours, These colours were hand
embroidered by Mrs. McDonell with
the "Canadian Emblem," and the
words "Greenwood Home Guard."
The Company stood at the "present" while the colours were received by the escort, Messrs. E. E.
L. Dewdney, P. H. McCurrach and
Mr. Nicholls. Mrs. McDonell^ then
addressed the Company as^follows:
"Gentlemen of the Greenwood
Home Guard," "Ife gives me great
pleasure to present to you the
colours -for which you stand. I
hope it may float over the 'Greenwood Home Guard' long after the
Germans have been conquered and
that the members may recruit
mauy more into their ranks."
Mr. F. W. McLaine as president of the Company replied in a
few well chosen remarks. The
colours were then escorted round
the city, to the Government offices,
where they were received by Mrs.
W. R. Dewdney. The Company
again stood at the "present,"while
Mrs. Dewdney made the following
remarks.
\ "Gentlemen of the Greenwood
Home Guard." "As Mr. Dewdney is absent from the city, on
business, I have great pleasure in
receiving the colours of the Home
Guard, which are to be kept in the
Court House in Greenwood. It is
an- added pleasure to know that
these colours have been presented
by Mrs. McDonell of Greenwood.
I have noticed that the city of
Greenwood has taken the lead* on

signal will ring forever v in 6he ears
of Englishmen: "T^is" day England expects every man to do his
duty." I have no doubt that the
Home Guard, if called upon, will
do its duty "
The Company then came to the
"elope," aud gave__both _Mrs.--Mc^

cheers and a tiger, in such a hearty
manner, that it could be heard -at

In Maine
As is generally thought, liquor
can be obtained in Maine only and
ostensibly as medicine. As a New
York man was purchasing a tooth
brash in a drag Btore in that state,
a big, raw-boried fellow entered
with a four jN-llon demijohn. He
slammed it down on the counter in
front of the druggist, and, banding
him a bit of paper,, said:
"Fill her np, Henry: Baby's

fruit and flowers, grown in Revelstoke. Mrs. Taft was delighted
and said that she had not seen
anything finer upon her entire trip.
The ladies in Revelstoke are adepts
at advertising the resources of their
city. Their example should be
followed by the ladies of other
towns ia tbis glorious conntry of

A New Camp
Notwithstanding his- 75 years,
Capt. T. D. Shorts shouldered hfe-
pack the other day _md with the*
saying 6n4riB; lips" "they've "got to
show ^me," started-the hike for
Jones'1 Lake. He was accompanied by Bill Bradley, one of the
discoverers and claim-owners. Now,
the Captain has returned and has
a wonderful story to tell. He has__
stakedVclaim andITamed iV' 'The
Thunder Storm"���not by any
means the sort of name one would
imagine the quiet and unassuming
Captain to attach to anything.
However, "Thunder Storm" is the
name and the old man is enthusiastic. "It is an immense affair,"
Cap. deciares, "and there's no use
a'talkin,' Jim, the boys have got
it just aa sure as God made little
apples. There's to be a big camp
in there, just as sure as your a foot
high." The veteran feels none the
worse, and considers that he has
been well compensated for his
trouble.
Arrangements are nov being
made to continue the B C. Electric company's trail round fehe lake
on the near side and then up the
mountain.
Philip White and Walter Bosp,
two prominent figures in tbe mining world of B. C, have returned

Both men speak well of the properties, and declare it to l*e one of
the largest mineral deposits they
have ever seen. Mr. White immediately left for Vancouver, while
Mr. Ross is continuing his investigation of the various ore bodies in
the surrounding district.

Goats'and Their Milk
Mr. V. D. Hondt, Goat Heaven
Farm, Spangle, Washington, writes
in'the Goat Keeper as follows:
On an area of 15,000 square
miles Switzerland produces yearly
38,000,000 worth of goats and goat
products. Spain, Italy and Greece
are heavy producers of goats and
goat products.
France, Belgium, and Germany
are heavy producers, and are noted
for the high milking qualities of
their stock.
In Great Britain the' British
Goat Society (under supervision
of-the government) yearly publishes a stud register giving the
names and owners of pedigree stud
goats selected by the committee,
and recommended for stock purposes.
In Bavaria the country is noted
for its larger number of centenarians. This fact is attributed by
doctors to the daily use of Yoghurt,
a product of goat's milk.
Goat's milk being very digest-
able and rich, is recommended by
doctors for the use of babies and
invalids..
The goat is immune from the
dreaded disease tuberculosis, or
the white plague, so common
among cattle and people.
"With millions of acres of the
finest brush land in the world lying idle in the mountains, with the
babies in the cities clamoring for
proper food, the Pacific Northwest,
and.in fact the whole United
States offers opportunities for the
milk-goat industry, the possibilities of which can hardly be estimated.
Rapid Progress
A servant in South-east London
was telling her mistress the other
day of the boasting indulged in by
the servant next door about her
young man in khaki.
"I can't understand how  he's
*��� got on   so   fast,"  she remarked.
"He's only been iq the-army a
few months,  yet she told me in
November that be was a corporal,
last week she said he'd been made
a sergeaotj and now he s to be
court-martial."
Mines and Mining
Ore was encountered a few days
ago in the lowest tunnel on the
Freddie Lee, situated up Cody
gulch, and being operated by A.
W. McCune. The find consisted
of only a small stringer and is regarded as encouraging. This tunnel, which is designed to open up
the property at depth, is now in
270 feet, and, according to indication, has about 60 more feet to go
before getting underneath the
main ore shoot of the mine. The
Freddie Lee was one of the first
shippers of the Slocan, and for a
time, prior to the advent of transportation, ore had to_be packed for
a long distance to water transportation.
It is reported that the Silver
Hoard has closed a contract for a
50-ton daily capacity mill, to be
installed as soon as the building
can be erected and machinery
assembled. The decision of the
directors to provide a concentrator
is said to havo been based on the
report of tho consulting eugineer,
Harold Lakes, who has been- conducting a milling tesi) of a 50-ton
shipment of Silver Hoard ore at
the Canadian Consolidated mill at
Rossland. It is said that Mr.
Lakes' report states that a high
percentage of recovery of the values
is possible by simple wet concentration, followed^by flotation, and
the system to be employed in the
mill will be devised and the installation superintended by him.
���About a hundred tons of high
grade ore are ready for shipment
from the Mountain Con, which is
located several miles above Sandon
on the north fork of Carpenter
creek, and according to the smelter
returns from the last car, Messra*
McClurg and Bennett of Sandon,
and Yawkey and Poss, of New
York and Detroit, who are operating the Con, should do well on
their season's operations. The
laBt car slightly netted over ten
thousand dollars.
Good progress is being made on
the wagon road being constructed
to connect the Florence mine, on
Princess creek, with the Highland
concentrator at Cedar creek. The
mill, which is owned by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.,-
has been secured by the Wolfe interests for the treatment of ore.
from the Florence mine, and will
be in operation shortly. Definite
plans as to the means of haulage tQ
be'employed have not yet been decided . upon, but it is staged.that
caterpillar tractors are being con
sidered. The Florence is now in
shape to deliver a big'tonnage of
milling ore, and negotiations have
been in progress for the securing
of a market of 200 tons of zinc per
month which is expected the property will be able to ship.
After being compelled to store
its zinc product for the last three
months, the Rambler-Cariboo hae.
favorable prospects of securing a
zinc contract with Denver or Kansas City smelters, making possible
the marketing of 500 tons held in
reserve, according to Dr. W. B.
McPhee, who returned to Spokane
a few days ago from a trip to the
mine. The mine is producing 400
tons of silver-lead concentrates and
zinc per month. Tbe lastzinccontract expired May 25 after the
shipment of four cars that netted a
total of approximately $15,000.
"The Denver and Kansas City zinc
companies are evidently in the
market for our zinc and terms are
being considered," Dr. McPhee is
reported as saying. "The mine is
now working 45 men. operations
being underway in tunnels Nos. 3,
7, 8, 10 and 12. In tunnel No. 10
a face of five feet of ore has been
opened. The silver-lead concentrates now being shipped are bringing from 81800 to $2000 a car and
the crude ore about $2500,"���Kaslo
Kootenaian.
When Jamie sat quiet for any
length of time, bis mother always
trembled., It usually meant some
question best defined as a "poser."
And on this occasion he hadn't
moved for ten minutes. Then it
came:   "Mother, do angels sleep?"
"Yes, dear, I suppose so."
Do they lie down, mother? How
can they,   with those big wings?"
"I'm sure I don't know, Jamie.
I've never thought about it.''
Silence again, and phe hoped he
bad forgotten but Jamie was think*
ing deeply. "I've got it, mother,"
he cried at last. "I'll bet they
roosti"
No News Value
A "cub" reporter on an up State
paper was bc... out by the city
editoi to get a sto.-y on the marriage of a young society girl and a
man well known in the city.
The "cub" was gone about an
hour and then returned and went
aimlessly over to his desk, by
which he sat down. Shortly afterwards the city editor noticed his
presence and his evident idleness.
"Here, kid." Bhouted the superior,
"why aren't you at work on that
wedding?"
"Nothing   doing"    replied   the
"Nothing doing? What do you
mean? Didn't the wedding take
place?'?
"Nope, the bridegroom never
showed up, so there ain't nothin'
to write."���Philadelphia Times.
