Paper Bombs
Instead of throwing bombs, some
of the French aviators flying over
German territory drop thousands
of leaflets, according to a German
newspaper, telling the German
people that their hope of victory
in the war is in vain. Thousands
of toy balloons, each containing
one of these leaflets, are freed daily
when the wind is favorable to
carry them into the German lines.
There is also being distributed by
the air route copies of a French
newspaper, prepared behind the
trenches, giving extracts from letters found on dead German soldiers in which the hopelessness of
the German cause is admitted.
This propaganda will, it is hoped
by those back of ife, cause discontent and unrest and add to the
discouragement of the German

editor who was usually mayor,
justice of the peace, and real estate
agent as weil.
Upon one occasion one of these
editors was busy writing an editorial on the tariff when a Georgia
couple came in to be married.
Without looking up, without once
elakening his pen, the editor said:
"Time's tLoney.    Want her?"
"Yes," said the youth.
''Want him?" the editor nodded
towards the girl.
''Yes'' she replied.
"Man and wife,'' pronounced
the editor, his pen still writing
rapidly. "One dollar. Bring a
load of wood for it. One-third
pine, balance oak."

Liberal Meeting
The Annual Meeting of the
Greenwood City Liberal Association was held in the Star Theatre,
on Monday evening. Considering
the inclemency of the weather the
attendance was large, there being
over eighty persons present. The
election of officers for the ensuing
year resulted as follows: Pres., J.
L. White; Vice-Pres., Thomas
Boileau; Sec'y-Treas., O. P. Charlton. A strong committee representative of the town and the immediate surroundings was also
elected. Stirring addresses on the
questions of the day were delivered by J. E. Thompson, Liberal
candidate in Grand Forks riding,
and by Dr. J...D. MacLean. the
candidate of the opposition forces
in the Greenwood riding.
Northport Smelter
For the first time in seven years,
smoke, on March 7, began issuing
from the smelter stacks at North-
port, the new $500,000-plant of
the Northport Smelting & Refining
Company having been blown in.
There are between 75 and 100 men,
working three shifts, employed,
and it is believed 150 will be on
tbe permanent payroll. But two
lead furnaces, each of 300 tons
daily capacity, now are in service,
but a third may be commissioned
shortly. The storage bins are full
to overflowing with ore from the
Hercules and Tamarack & Custer
mines, in the Coeur d'AIenes, and
the sidings are crowded with unloaded cars that have been sent in
during the last ten dayB. Iron
ore, carrying a small percentage of
lead, for fluxing purposes, is being
shipped from the Bunker Hill &
Sullivan mines at Kellogg, Idaho,
the product having been bought
outright by the Northport company.
The commissioning of the North-
port plant, construction of which
has been financed by the Hercules
and Tamarack & Custer mining
companies, controlled by the Day
Brothers and their associates,
mark an epoch in the mining history of the northwest, and it also
means that a signal victory haB
been won by independent interests
over the American Smelting & Refining company, which heretofore
has enjoyed practically a monopoly
of the output of the Coeur d'Alene
mines. Now that the product of
tbe Hercules and Tamarack &
Custer properties has been diverted
to the Northport plant, the A. S.
& R. is handling little but the ores
of the Federal mines, which it controls, and tbe Bunkejt Hill, in the
entire Coeur d'Alene district, and
this source of supply soon will be
considerably diminished, as the reserves in the Federal holdings are
being exhausted rapidly, and the
Bunker Hill & Sullivan c >mpany
is planning to begin construction
of a 81,000,000-smelter of its own,
either at Kellogg or on the Coast.

A Rich Group
Early in May active develop-

thr. Helway-McLaren group of
claim., on Kitsum-Kalum Lake,
uihI-'i the terms of a bond which
has been taken by Mr. Chas. F.
Law of this city for Mr. Earle,
president of the Nipissicg Mines of
Cobalt, Out., and vice-president of
the Granby company.
Mr. Law is representative in
Western Canada for Mr. D. A.
Thomas (Lord Rhonndda) who
has made his own personal interests subservient to his country's
call, and is ��ow in full charge of
rmiuitiou on the American continent for the war department. Mr.
Thomas is the largest owner of
coal lands in the Groundhog district and had contemplated build-
a railroad along the Ness river
to the Geld.
Tbe bonded property consists of
five claims aud but little development work has been done. Surface work has shown, however,
that there is a zone of echist and
quartz which assays on an average
$5 per ton in gold, which is free,
and can be saved by the simple
stampmili process. . Picked samples show the native; gold in both
the quartz and the schist, but these
are nob indicative of the average
value of the zone, which is at least
100 feet in width. The property
was examined last summer by Mr.
G. F. Monk ton, M. E., and it is
upon his report largely that the
deal for'opening up has been made.
Kitsum-Kalnm lake is north of
the Skeena river, its outlet being
opposite the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway, 91 miles eaBt of Prince
Mr. Law stated yesterday that
he believed this may prove another Alask-Treadwell proposition.
The latter is the largest gold mine
on the American continent, though
the ore is very low grade, averaging
less than one-half of the values
claimed for the Bel way-McLaren
claims. "Gold," said Mr. Law.
���'���is one metal which we muet produce iu the greatest possible quantities to meet the exigencies of the
war demands. The other metals
are necessary to the occasion, but
it is gold which will foot all tbe
bills. I believe that you will see
iygreat revival of interest in this
province in the gold mining industry, not only as to the lode deposits, but in placer as well."
Sixty years ago placer miners
sunk prospect holes on the shores
of Kitsum-Kalum lake in an effort
to find nuggets in the quartz seams
which traverse the gold-bearing
schist dyke. The marks of their
pioneer efforts still exist, bufe they
were 60 years ahead of the time
when this dyke could be profitably
The first of the year Gordon McLennan and Fred Brewer took a
trip to the Babine district for the
purpose of bringing out some antimony ore. The weather became
so intensely coid that they had to
turn back. They are now to make
another trip. The ore is a high
grade and the Dominion authorities
buy it at the railway.
McClennan's property is about
30 miles from town but this is the
nearest point on the railway.
Antimony is another metal that
greatly advanced in price owing to
demands for war purposes. Its
principal use in war material is to
bearden lead bullets used in Bhrap-
nel. During the war the price advanced from ISc to 55c a pound
for the best brands, and from 16c
to 39c for the ordinary erands of
Antimony usually occurs in nature as stibnite, the sulphate of
antimony, and is a common mineral in British Columbia, occuring
associations with lead and zinc
ores. It does not, however, as a
rule, occur in large quantities, but.
attempts are now being made in a
few places to sort it out from its
associated minerals. Two cars of
antimony ore are reported to have
been shipped from the Slocan to
Scotland. -It carried from 50 to
55 per cent antimony.���Omineca
Cats Taxed In Munich
The Surf Inlet mine on Princess
Royal Island is becoming one of
the big mines in B. C. It is being
operated under option by the Tonopah Belmont Development of
Nevada who have spent already
$150,000 on development work and
paid in $150,000 on the bond. The
mine shows general gold values of
$7 to $9 per ton on all mineralized
Plans are now being prepaaed
for a mill to treat 250 tons a day
to start with. This means a gold
production of about $2,000 a day,
or from $500,000 to $600,000 a
year. It is hoped that the further
development of the mine will warrant the considerable extension of
the plant ere long. The mine
should be producing bullion by
October next.���Omineca Herald.
The first city in the world to
levy a tax upon the domestic cat is
Munich, Bavaria This municipality has fixed the tax at five marks
($1.20) a year.
Manifold reasons are given for
the unpopular measure. It is considered that there are too many
cats in thg city, and it is expected
that the levying of the tax will result in reducing the numbers kept.
Every cat is to be provided with
a special collar and a metal check
such as the dogs wear, and those
who are not thus equipped will be
caught by authorized persons.

The coming of the milder
weather is resulting iu the resumption of mining activity all along
the line in and around Ainsworth,
and all the indications are that the
old camp will be on deck with a
big production record this season.
Reports of progress at the Bell
continue encouraging, the big Jack
son basin zinc property continuing
to send down all kinds of ore to
Retallack for shipment. The only
drawback is to get it moved by
rail, as the railway blockade has
interfered with it going forward,
but it is now hoped that further
difficulty will not be experienced
in that direction. A few days ago,
with only four miners at work, the
Bell had some like five hundred
sacks piled up ahead of the raw-
Lucky Jim and Rambler Cariboo shipments have been again interfered with by the railway blockade, but as that should be lifted

Milk in Blocks
The markets of Irkutsk, in
Siberia, are an interesting sight,
for the products offered for sale
are in most cases frozen solid.
Fish are piled up in stacks like
so much cord-wood, and meat likewise. All kinds of fowl are similarly frozen and piled up.
Some animals brought into the
market whole are propped up on
their legs and have the appearance
of being actually alive. As one
goes through the markets one
seems to be surrounded by living
pigs, sheep, oxen and fowls standing up.
But, stranger yet, even the
liquids are frozen solid and sold in
blocks. Milk is frozen into a block
in this way, and with a string or a
stick frozen in or projecting from
This, it is said, is for the convenience of the purchaser, who is
thus enabled to carry his milk by
the string or stick-handle.
There is, of course, less risk of
disease germs in frozen milk, but
the danger is not entirely removed
for many microbes, it has been
found, will survive very low temperatures and can be killed only
by intense heat.

Birds as Shepherds
Few know cf the shepherd birds
of South America. They belong
to the crane family and are known
as yakamik8. These carious birda
take care of large flocks of sheep,
leading them to pasture early in
the morning, and caring for them
all day unaided. If any Btray
animals approach the flock the
yakamik attacks them with beak
and Wings. They are said to be
much stronger than dogs.
Another fish which ia not being
utilized in Canada, though, minus
the head it has found its way into
the fastidious British market, is
wolf-fish or sea-cat. Probably its
ugliness prejudices people against
it. Yet those who have eaten it
say that it has a very superior
flavor, having perfectly white flesh,
whiter than halibut, flaky and
delicious. Wolf-fish vary from 15
to 20 pounds in weight. Great
quantities of them are caught in
the Maritime provinces and simply
thrown away, being considered as
absolutely of no value.
Typhoid bacilli are easily killed.
If a gallon of water is heated to
180 and then allowed to cool slowly it will not be capable of causing
typhoid. A simple method is to
heat the water until bubbles of
steam appear on the side of tbe
vessel. Then the gas is turned off
and the water is allowed to cool on
the stove. The temperature developed will kill typhoid. The water
will not taste flat.
