Just now, the world is confronted
with a serious shortage of copper,
and how high prices consumers
will be obliged to pay for it six
months or'a year hence is anybody's guess. The return to a
full vol nine ot production, which
is now the policy at all the mines in
the United States, may prevent the
market from.running away; but it
is as nearly certain as any future
thing can be that therewjll be a fall
market demand, at high prices, for
all the copper the mines can supply for a long time to comer
If the war continues for several
months longer, the price of copper
may reach high figures, and if the
war ends and is settled so that the
people of the various countries involved can immediately return to
their ordinary industrial pursuits,
the price of the metal may go much

Penticton Herald;
Grand Variety Concert
'^Nearly 200 attended the concert given in the Auditorium
last Saturday night by the Ladies
of St. Jude's church and all felt a
thrill-of pride as they listened to a
programme that was meritorious
from first to last. There were no
hitches in the programme and the
large audience was dismissed with
the singing of the National Anthem
led by the various artists. That
this city is most fortunate in the
capable group of musical artists it
numbers among its citizens was
apparent from the splendid results achieved. Besides the high
quality of music, both instrumental
and vocal, the management committee were most judicious in their
choice of artists, for all were of the
exceedingly unique and entertaining kind. ���
Mr. Marriage on the piano gave
complete satisfaction and caught
the fancy of the audience. Mrs.
Oliver and Mr. Marriage proved
sympa^Hetio accompanists. Rev.
R. D. Porter in his comic songs
with the banjo scored a success and
was repeatedly encored. The duet
by P. H. McCurrach and Rev. J.
H. Hobbins drew well-merited applause. The work of C. B. Winter is already well known to Boundary audiences and in this concert
he made his last appearance as he
is shortly leaving for Enderby. He
will be much missed by the music
lovers - of Greenwood. The work
of Mr. Winter should be given a
high place for never has an amateur acquitted himself so honorably in Greenwood, by his perfect
control and fine sense of musical
art. Trio by Miss Oliver, Miss
Groves and Mr. Winter was a
howling success. The Japenese
gowns made a most admirable setting. Mr. Dicker as an elocutionist was given an ovation which he
well deserved.
It would be impossible to do
justice to each separate number or
more than suggest the tremendous'
amount of work entailed in preparation. This is especially trhe
in the case of Mrs. Cummins and
troupe. This number was un- ���
donbtedly one of the best on the
programme. Mrs. Oliver did^her-
self credit and was popularly encored by the audience. The solos
by P. H. McCurrach and, Rev. *
Hobbins were rendered in a way
that won warm applause.. Perhaps the most unique number was,i
the darky sketch carried out. by
Messrs. Adams and Arthurs, assisted by ~ J. L. White who acted so
well that the audience did not
realize that he was part of the
troupe. Their witticisms and in-
strumentals were well received.
A conquest was scored by C.
King in his humorous songs and
by request gave the Charge of Balaclava in five nationalities. The
programme closed with C. King
and male chorus all dressed in
soldiers uniform. It was a gay,
spirited number, given with great
ability, a fitting conclusion to a
programme that was in every way-
a triumph.'

Ten New Commandments
The most exciting time in the
history of New Denver occurred
19 years ago last Friday night.
That was a hot time in the new
Lucerne. The Slocan hotel burnt
down and 13 people were injured
by jumping from windows. We
were there and defeated cremation
by making one of the longest jumps
on record without weights. We
lit with a dull but not a sickly
thud, breaking tbe sidewalk, and
tearing our only shirt to pieces.
The victims were dishabille but
none were arrested for indescent
exposure. We lost our money,
clothes and diamonds in the conflagration, but saved our room
rent for the night. As far as we
know none of the actors in that
great tragedy are now living in the
Slocau. It was certainly a great
night, and beat for excitement,
even a 24th of May celebration in
KaBlo or Silverton. It was one of
the times in our mundane existence that we were close to
both hell and heaven for a few
minutes. Since then we never
sleep higher than the first floor,
even when stopping at the Waldorf
in New York, or Bob Cunning's
in Sandon.

blow,  until the Silver   notes   do
touch and kiss the moonlit waves
arid charm the lovers wandering
'mid   the    vine-clad   hills.      But
know your sweetest strains are discords all   compared   with  childhood's   happy   laugh���the  laugh
that fills the eyes with light and
every heart with joy.   0 rippling
river of laughter^   thori art  the

beasts and riaen, and every wayward wave of thinex doth drown

joy, there are dimples eoongh in

The Booze
The best business men of the
United States are waking up said
one: "We know that until booze
is banished we cannot have efficient
workmen. Tt has got to go. It is
purely a matter of dollars and
cents. Corporations have no souls;
they are going to show very little
soul to the man who drinks.", It
is broad assertion, but "there is no
one town on earth that has the
saloons where the taxes are lower
than where they do not have the
saloon." The liquor trade of Iowa
pays $500,000 per annum in licenses and has increased the taxes
$1,000,000. The Chicago Tribune
kept track and found that 53,556
murders were committed by men
under the influence of liquor in ten
years. Ninety per cent, of adult
criminals are whiskey-made.
That's the answer. And here's
another. New York City's "rum"
bill is $1,000,000 a day���four times
the annual output of gold mined
in the United States. There is one
saloon to every thirty families.
The money sppnt in ten years
would buy every working man a
$3,500 house and lot. That sum
in $1 bills would cover 10,000.
acres of ground. Do you Wonder
there is poverty and crime, Mr.
Editor? A. policeman once remarked that he never took a total
abstainer to prison.
All That Money
Sam the choreman, returned
from the city with a scarf pin that
contained a "Diamond" of no
usual size. It was the pride of his
heart and the envy of his village
companions. He treated all . inquiries from them as to the value,
and its authenticity with high
His employer, after a week of
basking in its radiance, asked Sam
about its history.
"Sam, ' he said, "is it a real
diamond." ,
"Wall," said Sam, "If,it ain't
I've been sknu out of four bits."
Both Had Ability
A man left his unbrella in the
stand in a hotel; with a card bearing the following inscription attached to it: "This umbrella belongs to a man who can deal a
blow of 250 pounds weight. I
shall be back in ten minutes.''
On returning to seek his property
he found in its place a card thus
inscribed: "This card was left here
by a man who can run twelve miles
an hour.    I shall not be back."

"Belgium as a producing factor is obliterated from the map. Britain, always unable
to sustain-itself, will have stronger needs. That beautiful section of France where a little
more'than a year ago-1 saw the countless stooks of golden grain is now scarrgd with. the.
deep-dug trenches.   Surely, surely there is need for all that we can do." .:  .      -;   *���-

Many Foods
The Empire asks, Canada to increase the production of staple foods���not
merely of wheat. Great Britain wants oats, corn, hax^ey, pea,s,,beans,
potatoes, turnips, onions, meat, dairy products, poultry and eggs.
In the past Great Britain has imported immense quantities of the^e
staple foods from Russia, France, Belgium, Germany, and Austria-Hungary
as shown by the following:
Average Imports
Years 1910-1913
Wheat.. .28,439,609 bush.
Oats 23,686,304    "
Barley.. .15,192,268
Corn 7.621,374
Peas     703,063
Beans      639,663
Potatoes.. 4,721,690
Onions     271,669
Meat.... 26,609,766
Eggs .121,112,916
Butter and
Cheese... 91,766,233   lbs.
The above mentioned sources
of supply of -staple- foods are
sow, in the main, cut off as
result of the war. Great Britain
is looking to Canada to supply a
large- share of the ��� shortage.
Every individual-farmer has a
duty to perform.
Make Your Land
Produce More
Millions of bushels rather
than millions of acres should be
Canada's aim. The fields already under cultivation should
be made more productive. Keep
in mind good seed and good
.. That there is abundant reason
to expect larger returns from
the same area is conclusively
shown when we compare the
average production of the
present time with the possible
production. Note the following
brief table which shows our
average in 1314 and the possible
production per acre:���
Average Possible
Fall Wheat    20.43      62.
Spring Wheat...   14.84      33.
Barley    16.15      69.

Have You Attended Your District Conference?
If you have, you know that you heard once more the same old gospel of ctop production.
Have you talked over with your neighbour farmers the problems" discussed at the
Conference? If there are any questions on which you are at all doubtful write at
once for information to the Canadian Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, "or to your
Provincial Department of Agriculture.   They will be pleased to Help you.
Increase Your Live Stock._���
Breeding stock are to-day Canada's most valuable
asset. The one outstanding feature of the world's farming
is that there will'soon be a great shortage of meat supplies.
Save your breeding stock. Plan to increase your live
stock. Europe and the United States, as well as Canada,
will pay higher prices for beef, mutton, and bacon in the
very near future. Do not sacrifice now. Remember
that live stock is the only basis for prosperous agriculture.
You are farming, not speculating.
