Another Big Strike
Following the recent big strike
of ore in the Ivanhoe mine, news
Iibh been received that Mr. John
Killian has just opened a large deposit of schist that averages 818.00
in gold to the ton the whole width
of the shaft at the bottom. The
assays were made by the "Washington State College at Pullman,
Washington, and the samples were
taken by one of the most conservative mining men in Oroville. This
belt of shist is over 50 feet wide
and it will probably develop tint
the entire mags is fine ore. This
property is two miles south of
town and near Mr. Killian's residence. Until the visit of Prof. F.
M. -Tandy of Pullman college last
summer no one had every thought
of looking for gold in the schists
and slates of this section. Mr.
Handy's visit to this section was
one of the results of the organization of the Northwest Mining
Association at Qroville.���OroviUe
Gazette.
At tho recent Bazaar held by the
Soldiers Circle of Kock Creek, the
net proceeds were $485.34, in
which a ton of wheat and i ton of
hay were kindly donated to the
Circle, the wheat by Mr, Shaver,
and the hay by Mr. Volick. The
two stalls presided over by Mrs.
King and Mrs. Sbillcock were filled
with something for everyone, both
young and old. The Rancher's
stall which was presided over by
Mrs. H. Martin, which was filled
to over fiowiDg with everything
with everything you could wish for
in the way of eatables from live
pigs, down to the good old English
Plum Duff. The Christmas Tree
which was laden with books and
toys drew- the attraction of the
children and was very soon stripped, the articles of which were
donated by Mrs. Douglas-Hamilton and Mrs. Roberts. An interesting program  was given  in the
evening, followed by dancing.
At a meeting held by the Soldiers Circle on Saturday it was decided to send $300 to R?d Cross
Fund and $125 to tbe Belgium Relief Fund,
The Circle intends also to give a
Calico Dress Dance, at Riverside
Hall,   on   Friday,   January 21st.

have orders which will keep them
working on war contracts for
mouths to come-
About a billion and a quarter
feet are logged every year in British Columbia, according to government figures, while the annual
growth is estimated feo be about
six billion feet. A considerable
! amount is killed each year by fires,
but not so much actually burned,
as the fires generally leave much
[-standing that can be logged and
put to good use. Cruisem have
estimated that in this season's fires
23,000,000 feet of timber was
"killed" but Of this, 20,000,000
can be saved, so the loss is not so
serious as it appears. It is estimated that four hundred billion feet
of timber SEill stands to grace the
hills of British Columbia, and to
611 the needs of future generations.

Smelter Would Help
"The people of this province
have been too willing to look to
the people of the United States for
assistance in promoting their mineral resources. Due to a feeling
that the mining industry was unsafe or to a disinclination to invest
their capital in so conservative a
manner. British Colnmbia men
have shown an inclination to allow
the Americans to get in first, aad
thereby reap the rewards."
So stated Mr. Newton W. Em-
mens, mining engineer of Vancouver, when discussing the great
need in this province for a zinc refinery with a World reporter. He
drew attention to the vast sums
that were yearly sent across the
line to the smelter men of that
country.
"They say that we cannot do
the work here," he continued,
"yet if they can do it in the States
we can certainly do it in British
Columbia. They say that the zinc
production of the province is not
sufficient to keep a smelter woi Icing.
"A smelter mast treat abont
25,000 tons of zinc ore yearly in
order to be successful, and that I
claim that within six months of
the time that a smelter was started
I could have contracts signed for
double'that "amount.
"Take the Lucky Jim and Hudson's Bay properties alone. They
each have a production of about
1500 tons of ore monthly. The
Slocan Star can produce about
1,000, although at the present time
it is only producing about 50 per
cent of that amount. The Standard has a production today of
abont 500 tons monthly and can be
speeded up to double that amount.
"Some of these properties are
now tied up with contracts with
American smelters, but if there
was an opportunity presented to
them whereby they could ship
their ore to a plant near home, say
within a radios of a freight rate of
$4 a ton,'it would mean a saving
to them of about $6 from the
freigbtjthey'^are |forced to pay
under"present conditions.
"The establishment of such a
plant would_mean not only a great
saving to those men who now ship
to the United States, but it would
also mean the operation of many
properties which are now idle, due
to .the too great burden of freight
rates.
"There has been a smelter started at Trail, but it is more than
probable that the output of the
company's own mines will be sufficient to keep it working to capacity. There is easily nom for
another. It is something which
this province sorely needs."���
Vancouver World.
The town that says "Oh, I don't
know, I don't think it will amount

If you have no local pride, borrow some.
A Warrior of Today
The methods of warfare have
changed enormously in the past
year. The sword, for example,
has almost disappeared from war.
A story comes from the Argonne
about a French chasseur who took
a German officer prisoner.    The
chasseur, a boy, said to the officer:
Give up your sword!'"
But the officer said I have no
sword to give up, but won't my
vitriol spray, my oil prrj ctt.r, or
my gae cylinder do aB well? *

The tumult of arms and the
noise of artillery do not make the
same impression on all kinds of
birds. Whereas some do uot seem
at all exercised nor -fleeted, others
are terrified and take flight, so
says a writer in L'Ami des Aui-
maux, Geneva, from which we
have translated the following:
In the north of Prance, in the
midst of the horrors of battles,
blackbirds stay in the bushes or
hedges, practising the strictest
neutrality. The lark delights tbe
combatants with his morning song.
A. pair of swallows made their nest
in the heart of the trenches, where,
due to the humanity of the soldiers
they were not allowed to want for
anything. The starling and the
gray bunting -have no fear of the
war. On the contrary, the yellow
bunting, the titmouse, the chaffinch, and the goldfinch, have almost entirely disappeared. The
partridges and the ^buzzards fly
with all the strength of their wings
to escape bombs and bullets.
England has become a place of
refuge, a sort of terrestrial paradise for these fugitive birds. But
there also they may be reached at
times by the flying projectiles.

The Responsive Chord
In   the   early   spring   of 1863,
when the Confederate and   Federal
armies were confronting each other
on  the. opposite  hills  of  Stafford
and    Spottsylvania,     two    bands
chanced one evening at the^ same
hour, to begin to  discourse sweet
music'On'either^bank  of the'river.
A .large 'crowd ''ofj_the soldiers of
both armies gathered  to listen   to
the music, the friendly pickets not
interfering,"! and   soon   the bands
began to answer each other.    First
the band   on" the  northern   bank
would play   "Star Spangled Banner,"   "Hail  Columbia," or some
other national air,   and  at its conclusion the   "boys""in  blue" would
cheer  most  lustily,   and then the
band ou the southern bank would
respoud with-"Dixie" or   ''Bonnie
Blue Flag," or some other Southern  melody,   and    the   "boys   in
gray" would attest their approbation   with   an    old   "Confederate
yell."     But presently  one of the
.hands  struck   Up,   in   sweet  and
plaintive notes, which were wafted
across the beautiful Rappahannock,
were caught  up  at  once by the
<ther band and swelled into a great
anthem which touched every heart,
"Home, Sweet Home.'
At the conclusion of this piece
Viere went up a stimnltaneous
s'aout from both sides of the river
���-cheer followed cheer, and those
hill-., which had so recently
resounded with hostile guns
echoed and re-echoed the glad ac-
c aim.
A chord had been struck responsive to which the heart of
eaemies��� enemies then���could beat
in unison: and; on both sides of
the river,
Something   down   tbe   soldiers'
cheek
Washed off the stains of powder.
���J.. William Jones.
matter of oats Canada's
yield is 481,035,500 bushels, of
which 305,680,000 bushels were
produced in the western provinces.
The wheat crop is 42 bushels per
head of population, as compared
with 10 bushels per bead in the
United States.
Last year's crop yield is the
equivalent of at least two ordinary years.    Keep this fact in mind.
Here is another fact of unruis-
takeable significance: Tbe three
trans-continental Canadian railways have been hauling since

Then this: Bank clearing ire-
turns in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina and other important
commercial centres have increased
from 17 per cent, to 54 per-cent.
The steel trades are booming.
The proof of this is the stock
market quotations.
The field crops of Canada this
y ear are greater than in any year
since Confederation.
The savings of the Canadian
people are greater than in .any
period since Confederation.
The position of tbe chartered
banks is stronger than in any
period since Confederation.
Many manufactories are busier,
and more mills, factories, machine
shops, and foundiies (throughout
the Dominion are being operated
24 hours a day than in any other
years since Confederation.
The United States has a plethora
of gold seeking investment. .Al
ready New York has purchased
millions of dollars of of Canadian
securities and has millions of ��� dollars of gold for future purchases.
The anomaly of the present-situation is that while Canada played
no part in the events that precipitated the European war, she. will
be the innocent beneficiary.
It might be added that Canada
is to-day producing - more of what
it is consuming, and exporting
more agricultural and manufactured products than any time since
Confederation.
"Ganada in the next 30 years
will grow moro than any other
part of the North American continent has grown in any 30 years,'*
is the deliberate statement of
Clarence W. Barren, editor of the
"Wall Street Journal."
The foreman of a gang of railway men has more than his sharp
of wit. The other afternoon he J
was walking along his section of
the line when he found one of his
laborers fast asleep in the shade of
a hedge. Eyeing the man with a
stern smile, he said slowly���
"Slape on, ye idle spalpeen���slape
on. So long as ye slape ye've got
a job, but when ye w%ke up ye're
out of wurk!"

Ants that Sew
A writer ia The Visitor tells of a
party of German naturalists returned from Ceylon, who have reported the existence of a species of
ant that has been observed in the
act .of sewing two leaves together
for the purpose of forming a nest.
This report confirms the. observations of the English naturalist,
Ridley, made in 1890. Theysaw
a row of the insects, polling the
edges of leaves together,.. then
others trimming and fitting the
edges, and finally the completion
of the work by etill other ants,
which fastened the edges with a
pilky thread yielded by larvae of
the saoae species, which the workers carried in their mandibles. It
h said that the sewing ants pass
the thread-giving larve like shot-
ties through holes in the edges of
the leaves.
He Does Not Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is. getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad!"
If there be, go mark him well,
For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who never asks For trade,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath'of moss,
And on a stone above "Here l'es
A fossil, who did not advertise."
