Mrs. Drucker, of Sekforde-street,
Clerke,nwell, London, tells a remarkable story of the success of a
daring, ruse she adopted in tho
hope of restoring speech to her
soldier son, Corporal Charles
Drucker, of the Welsh Regiment,
who had returned from the front
dumb as the result of shock.
"Last Tuesday night he went to
a picture palace, and when he
came home he sat in the kitchen
looking very gloomy. I wenfc^)-
stairs and spoke to a neighbor on
the landing- 'You scream out,'
I said to her, 'when you hear me
fall.' Then 1 took down an empty
tin lamp which was hanging on
the landing, sat on the top Btair,
and slid off. I came down thud���
bump���thud, and the tin lamp iu
my hand made a fearful clatter.
The woman on the landing screamed loudly enough.
"I heard a shout of 'mother' and
the next instant Charlie came dashing out of the kitchen. He fell at
the foot of the stairs and lay there
like a log. 'It'was Charlie's voice,'
shouted the neighbour from the
landing excitedly, while ray son
and daughter pulled me up, but I
was terribly frightened.
"Charlie lay unconscious, and I
thought   the ' fright   might have
killed him.    We carried  nim into
the kitchen - and  tried  for a long
time to- revive him.    We were all
crying    round   him.      I   felt   his
throat,    and    noticed    that    his
'Adam's apple,' which  previously
I had been unable to feel,  had reappeared.    At the end of about an
hour he seemed    to  revive,   and
with a great effort managed to call
out 'water!'    We gave him some
and'later offered him a little paregoric in a glass,  but he pushed
that away with the word 'poison.'
"These were the firsts words I
had heard him speak since he came
from  the war,   because ..when he
shouted 'mother' I had -'thought it'
was my other-son.   He*** was shaking from head- to foot,_aml it was
with the greatest difficulty that he
got the Words out.    He. wanted to
talka-lofcj bnCwa-told1 hi_r.o'keep
quiet.     'Making���up���for���lost���
time,'  he said slowly.    The next
day he could talk much better and
was able to tell us a long story of
his experiences at the war, though
he did not speak with the ease of-
an ordinary person."    ."
Mrs. Drucker, who showed such
magnificient devotion to her son,
bruised herself severely in the fall,
and being a heavy woman, was
also Beverly shaken. She is still
feeling the effect?.
Corporal Drucker, who has returned to Cardiff, Btated in an interview bearing out his mother's
story that his nerves were no* yet
right, but that he hoped to go back
to the front to do his duty.

Few cities have felt German
competition more than heie. Trade
after trade, onue considered by
Birmingham its own, was taken
from it. Take, for example, the
manufacture of buttons. Forty
years ago Birmingham made 80
per cent, of the buttons of the
world. Before the war she made
not more than 15 per ceut., the
remainder coming from Germany
and Austria. Today Birmingham
sees many industries lost in recent
yearp coming back again.

Sir -Richard McBride, Premier.
desires that the following public
statement of his be made as public
as possible:
' 'There appears  to be a persistent rumour which has gained considerable currency in the proving,
that my late  secretary was assgei-
ated with  the  stealing and mfWff1"
pulation of plans of home deft__ce
and that the discovery of his complicity therein was the cause of his
death.    Since  returning  from my
recent  visit   east  I  learned   that
some such rumour bad  been   published  in  a  Seattle  paper,   but;I
paid no attention to it other than
as a pha=^ of newspaper sensationalism.    It  never  occurred   to me
that in  British Columbia,   where
Mr. Macrae was well  known,   any
heed wonld be paid  to  it.    It is a
painful subject for me  to discuss,
but in justice to the memory of one
who never betrayed a trust or was
disloyal feo his country in thought,
word  or deed, I must state  moBt
emphatically  that   the   rumor   is
without    the    slightest     possible
foundation.     The   circulation   of
such stories, wilfully or otherwise,
is a cruel reflection upon- my late
secretary and  painful  in' the, extreme   to   relatives   and -friends.
Mr. Macrae had been  suffering for
many months with a  nervous ail-,
ment and his untimely  death cannot in the slightest degree be regarded as a reflection in' any way
upon^his^honour as  a'man or a
citizen." - '

The war has created a boom in
Birmingham, England, and caused
a labor famine. Old trades are
being revived. Birmingham sword-
making, once" an important ~ affair,
almost disappeared under the stress
of cheap German competition.
Many of the workers were disbanded, some of them went to the
work-house, some to the grave,
and one or two went mad, victims
of industrial strain. Today the
employers, with renewed demand,
are seeking out the old hands
wherever they are to be found and
bringing them back again. "In
past years," said a large manufacturer and well-known public
worker, \1 have had to sit on relief committies voting sums to help
skilled workers, unable to obtain
employment, to go to Cbnada. Today, if it were not that ife did not
eeem a fair thing to do, we would
advertise in the Canadian papers
for our workers to come back. We
need them all."

tain classes of fitters was formerly

About Copper
The New York Mining Age of
January 11 says:
"Copper metal made a very
strong advance : during! the Week
from 13c. tol3��c. What is equally
as important aa the ��� advance in
price is the heavy act__l Bale of
the metal at the higher quotation.
The balk of the sales are for February and -M-Tch delivery. . This
is the beginning of the annual
spring buying move, with the customary heavy purchases for April
and May delivery yet to be heard
from.
American railroads are to enter
the markets* and have already in
part entered, as heavy buyers of
copper thie year. Their purchase
for two years pmt w��*f�� * __foderhte.
One of the features of the New
York Stock Exchange early in the;
week Was a bull wave in rail*, and
steel and railway-equipment shares,
which indicates that the heretofore
hardprcssed railroads are jjping to
spend considerable soma of money
fo? improvements. The railroads
are one of the big and very important consumers of copper metal.
Germany ia plainly receiving
considerable a-cessiotis of copper
metal through neutral countries.
The price of copper metal in
Bremen is anderstfbod to have
dropped to 28c. per pound, as compared with 36c a month ago.
There is a very pronounced
famine in copper for industrial
purpose., in Ger_M__y and Austria.
For military purposes, however,
the Imperial governments have all
the red metal they ae*-., The big
Mannsfeld and other mines in
Germany are i_ld to be taming
oat copper at the rate of about
100,000,000 pounds per ���imam,
which is more than sufficient to
meet ail demands of the irmiee and
navies,

music was rendered by the Misses
Crawford, Mrs. Burke and Mr.
Crawford for the dancers.

winter in Carmi, being the popular
clerk ot the Carmi hotel.
The spacious dining room of the

decorated and dainty refreshments
were served afe midnight.
Isaac Crawford and his daughter, Miss Irene, left this week for
a two weeks visit in Phoenix.

On Monday of this week Paul
Johnson, a trapper, made a record
tourney of 65 miles on skees from
his trap line beyond Mission creek,
in fehe mountaiuB east; of Kelowna,
covering an estimated distance of
65 miles in the seven hours between six o'clock in the morning
and one o'clock in the afternoon.
Mr. Johnson, who put up at the
Victoria Hotel, was not greatly
wearied by his journey, attended to
business affairs here, and left the
next day for his camp. He reports
furs plentiful, but is marketing
only a few on account of the prevailing low prices. The bulk of
his catch he is saving for next
season's market.���Vernon News.

Best attention given to tourist and Family Trade,
Christendom has entered upon the-nineteen hundred and fifteenth
year since thewisemen came to the stablein~Bethle_eaiy"~ and ~ looking
back, over all those centuries, counsels of despair drive the thinking
man to ask, "How is that Christianity has accomplished so little?"
The rationalist is ready with his reply. He insists, not without some
show of reason, that Christianity is simply the most beautiful but also'
the most unpractical of the Utopias fashioned by the dreamers and
composed commonly of fools' paradises. Yet the rationalist is a great
believer in human,intelligence which has hot come out of the struggle
of the ages altogether unscathed. A great deal has been written about
the battle of the creeds, bnt what abont the squabble of the philosophers? If the human mind inspired Erasmus it also inspired Tor-
quemada, and if it carried Caesar across the Rubicon, it carried Anthony up the Nile. It was the mob and not the Grand Inquisitor,
who made the auto-da-fe a possibility, and justified that vitriolic but
splendid outburst of James Russell Lowell:���
"Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne-
Yet that scaffold sways the Future, and, behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own."
Probably the greatest mistake that human intelligence could make,
standing just within tbe portal of the new year, would be to conclude
lightly that the tragedy of Europe was nothing more than a mere for-
tuous explosion of the lust of the flesh fired by their own spontaneous
combustion. God, Principle, stands today, as when Lowell wrote,
within the shadow, and the flame of the refiner flickering or roaring
round the quartz, is and must be, through the baptism of fire, purify-
not only what is least worthy, but what is most worthy in human
nature.
The world feels somehow, possibly for almost the first time in war,
that the men who are following the dram are, one and all, animated by
a deep sense of duty. The pomp and pageantry, the days of the Mar-
tots and the d'Artagnans, are gone. It is no "statesman's game" or
priests delight" this time, even if yon were to admit that priest or
statesman wrought it. It is the culminations of ideas meeting like the
thunder clouds in the empyrean, and making human nature tremble at
their contact. The nations who hare gone to war in this spirit will
emerge, as the gold emerges from tbe flame, tempered and purified.���
