Mr. Wigin is a rancher at Rock^
Creek, and recently went to England to join the Army Medical
Corp. The following extaact from
a Yorkshire paper tells how hiB
sisfeer escaped from Germany:
"Often they asked me if I were
not ashamed to be English, and
would I not like to become a Ger- -
man?   I laughed in  their  faces.
A German?   No; rather die!
"I was staying at a convent
when the war broke out, and for a
fortnight was not allowed to leave
the grounds for fear of being stoned
to death. I certainly was not keen
on doing so, because on the only
occasion when I went into the vil-
liage a man attempted to horsewhip me, while as for spitting on
me and hurling insults at me, those
were merely minor details.
"Ab times went on  things got
worse, and I decided in spite of all
dangers to do all in my power to
reach England at any cost.    I telephoned to Munich  (I was in the
Passu district)  for permission to
travel over Austria,  intending to
take the route over Geheva, Paris,
Dieppe.      After   waiting   over  a
week, and no passport being forthcoming.   I decided to present myself personally   to   the American \
Consul afe  Munich.     I  intended
leaving the convent about the 6th
or 7feh of this month and asked the,_,
mayor of the village if rmight��;do ;
so, as it was already Thursday the   \
3rd inst. , "" "''
"But before T could get'his con- ���

should be detained until the end "of,.

permission from the mayor.    I did"   .
not think I should have any difficulty in this, bufe was sadly mistaken,  for unhapily  he   saw, me
enter a motor to go feo the station
at Passu, and guessing my intention, telegraphed through to stop
me.   However, being able to speak
German well, passed off as one,
and sat quietly in the corner of my
carriage, while I saw them searching and heard them enquiring for
an   escaped   English   girl.     The
train started afe last,  and all fehat
remained now was to get my passport and race off to the frontier
town of Bentheim, between Germany and Holland.
"In Munich all-went- well,-and���
after a wretched 24 hours in the
train I arrive at Bentheim at 10.30
on Sunday night. I had to show
my passport to about six different
officials, who examined ife and
everything I possessed, while a
soldier stood behind me with fixed
bayonet.
"I was then told I had to be
stripped and searched in case I
should have* hidden papers on my
person, and when I complained
they answered, 'You onght to be
very glad to be treated so well, and
nofe so cruelly as the English are
treating our poor German girls!'
"I was relieved to find that a
woman was at hand for the searching purpose, for (I have beard) on
several occasions that men had
undertaken this business. From
the way I was treated, oi e wonld
have thought I was a strong man
instead of a girl of 20. The only

to me,  it happened to be stuck a
little at one corner.   I was therefore marched on to the police-station (a matter of 29 minutes walk)
where they told me the punishment
for such an offence was a year's
imprisonment.   I laughed at them,
and told them to do their worst, at
the same time tearing the letter to

The Prison Farm
Editor Ledge.���
Dear Sir:
Recently" when in Vancouver an opportunity offered of
paying a visit feo the Prison Farm
at Okalla of which an old friend
and former Gevernment Agenfe at
Greenwood, Mr. W. G. McMynn,
is the Warden and it seemed that
a few lines, feelling of the good
work in which he is engaged,
would be welcome to his numerous
friends among your readers.
Okalla is some nine to ten miles
from Vancouver, the prison farm
being situated on' a wooded knoll
surrounded by hills and gulches
covered Avifeh heavy underbrush,
now being cleared and transformed
into cultivated land planted with a
view to its usefulness in furnishing
the prison wifeh vegetables of all
kinds, not forgetting an orchard,
while some rare trees, received
from the Dominion Government
are planted on the terrace of the
main building, giving a touch of
artistic beauty. The new priBon
building, not yet occupied, is. most
commodious, the work having been
most thoroughly carried out in accordance with the latest word as to
safety and convenience.
This new departure in the praiseworthy effort for the reclamation
of our criminal population j shouid
receive the utmost sympathy and
support of those who are interested
in the upbuilding
Mr. McMynn, at the instance of
the Dept. visited some of the
prison farms now established in
the United States, with a view of
collecting the most-up to date information in connection wifeh the
management and treatment of the
inmates. The knowledge acquired
on thiB trip has been of the utmost
benefit in planing and carrying out
the development of the Okalla
farm. This development is being
carried out under the immediate
supervision of Mr. McMynn, who
takes the deepest interest in the
work���this work is nofe confined to
outside work, such as building,
clearing, cultivating the land, etc.,
.line of the inmates being employed
in the carpenter, tailoring and
boot making shops attached to the
institution, each one being put to
work most suitable for him, so
that the farm in a measure, may
eventually become self supporting.
This is not the only benefit, Mr.
McKynn informed me that the
occupation and trust given, has already had a most beneficial effect,
appealing as ife does to the best instinct of the inmates, giving reason
to look forward hopefully to the
future for many of them.
Yours truly,
HENRY NICHOLSON, J. P.
Vanity
Vanity and the desire for honors
are always a bad symptom, for
both rest at bottom upon a self-
condemnation which tries to supply
the missing inner contenment by
outward show or the approving
judgement of others.���Carl Hitty.

Red Metal
Practically all of fehe companies
dove now reported an increase in
production, The Michigan mines
are on full time and operating to
full capacity and fair prices for tbe
first time in two years. Anaconda
has re-opened its largest; mine, tbe
Mountain View. Utah copper has
added another steam shovel, increasing production by 10 or 15
per cent. The other porphyries
have also increased output by a
similar amount. Afe Bisbee, Calumet & Arizona and the Copper
Queen are gradually expanding
operations. The other south-western coppers are increasing ootpnt.
Greene-Cananea is ready to resume, and, up in British Colnmbia,
Granby has increased its output.
All told, however, the increased
production will add less thau 20,-
000,000 pounds per month to the
mines' output of the red metal.
It will take two to three months
time, moreover, before this metal
can pass through fehe refineries and
he put on fehe market.
The increase in production already ordered is not enough to
take care of fehe heavy demand for
copper for war purposes in Europe,
and for domestic consumption this
side of the Atlantic. A further increase in production is probable,
and will certainly take place if
American consumers of copper
make their appearance in the market. They have been absent for a
long time now.
In January Europe placed orders
in this country for between 70,000,-
000 and 75,000,000 pounds of copper. Figuring domestic orders at
around 40,000,000 pounds, which
is less than sixty per cent, of the
normal- demands in the United
States, there is a total demand for
110,000,000 to 115,000,000 pounds
against a mines and smelters' production estimated sroand 72,000,-
000 pounds. The sales in January
therefore exceeded production try
approximately 40,000,000 pounds.
The increase of less than 20,000,-
000 pounds per month ordered by
producers therefore still falls considerably short of meeting the demands of the market.
This explains why in the -ace of
the important increase of production, the price of the red metal has
refused to bodge one iota.���N. Y.
mining Age.
The Granby
Granby Consolidated now has
six of itb eight furnaces at Grand
Forks in blast and two of the three
furnaces afe Hidden Creek. This
gives the property an output capacity of approximately 70 per cent,
normal. Two furnaces were added
to Grand Forks February 9.
It is likely that the March
meeting of the directors will produce something in the way of dividends after the June payment in
1914, amounting to $1.50 per share.
It is expected that by the"* time of
the next dividend in June 1915,
the company will have accumulated
sufficient profits to permit resumption of dividends and there are
some who would express no surprise at a Granby dividend in
March.���Mining Age.
Half Million Like Her
A paper has printed a picture of
an old lady, sitting alone in sorrbw
on a bench in a park in London.
She is fehe mother of a man who
has gone to war and the story beneath the picture runs:
"Silent she sat, bowed with a
weight of woe upon a bench in
Hyde Park, London.
"Great stories of bravery gleam
from printed pages���of courage on
battlefields and heroic- deeds when
death and life were pawns in a
game of nations, but it means
nothing to her for fehe printed lists
of death have broken her heart and
taken from her all joy in life with
a line of agate type which spells
the name of her son.
Today she is half a million in
number���this mother who morns
for the 'cannon food' that lies in a
trench. She lives in England and
Germany and Belgium and France
and Russia.and Austria.
l"Tell her of the glories of war,
of the din of battles and the victories of arms���aud gefe the answer
in the eyes fehat are tearless, in the
shoulders bent with sobs, in tbe
1 ines of her face which but reflect
tho furrows in her heart in which
hope and gladness are forever
buried,"
Ocean Billows Roll
"I was coming from Liverpool
upon one of the famous liners,"
says Bishop Potter, "and although
the sky was clear and the weather
warm a .somewhat tempestuous sea
had occasioned more than the
usual ��� amount of sea-sickness
among the passengers. As I paced
the deck one afternoon, I noticed
a lady ��� reclining upon one of the
benches, and fehe unearthly pallor
of her face and the hopeless languidly of her manner indicated
tha? she had reached that. state of
collapse which marks the limit of
seasickness.
D "Touched by this piteous spectacle, and approaching - the poor
creature, in my most_ compassionate tone, I aBked: 'Madam,J can
I be of any service to you?"
"She did not open her eyes, but
I heard her murmur faintly:
'Thank you, sir, bufe there is nothing you can do���nothing at all.'
" 'At least, madam,' said I,
tenderly, permit me to bring yon a
glass of water.'
"She moved her head feebly and
answered: 'No, I thank you���
nothing at all.'
" 'But yonr husband madam,'
said I, 'the gentleman lying there
with his head in your lap���shall I
nofe bringBomething to revive him?'
"Tbe lady again moved her head
feebly, and again she murmured
faintly and between gasps: 'Thank
you sir. but���he���is���not���my���
husband. I���don't know���who he
is!"
He had been a very, very heavy
soaker, and at last, yielded to the
earnest and continuous entreaties
of his friends,  he entered an in
ebriates' home.
"You're all right exclaimed the
cheery doctor when he examined
him. "We'll have yon out of here
in a couple of weeks!"
Then the patient went of gaily to
write a letter. Having finished it,
he started to lick the stamp, but
the latter fell of his band, and by
chance alighting on the back of a
beetle scarring across the room.
Now, the soaker never saw the
beetle, but he gazed spellbound at
the sight of a postage stamp zigzagging across the Boor, and finally
disappearing into a crevice.
"Hell," he exclaimed, bitterly.
"Two weeks, indeed; I slant be
out of here for three years."
