A Ludicrous Explanation
A clergyman, anxious to introduce some new hymn-books, directed the clerk to give out a notice
in church in regard te them immediately after the sermon. The
clerk, however, had a notice of bis
own to give with reference to the
baptism of infants. According, at
the close of the sermon, he announced: "All those who have
children they wish baptised, please
send in their names at once."
The clergyman, who was deaf, supposing that the clerk was giving
out the hymn-book notice, immediately arose and said: "And I
want to say for the benefit of those
who haven't any, that they may
be obtained from me any day between three and fonr o'clock; the
ordinary little ones at fifteen cents,
and the special ones with red backs
at twenty-five cents each/'

Approximately   twenty  million
men    have   been   mobilized    in
Europe.    A large  proportion1, of
these bad been  withdrawn from
the countries  at  war.   Even   in
neutral countries.large numbers of
food producers have been  called
from   the  land to  be ready  for
emergencies.   It will be difficult
for us to realize what will be the
effect on food production through
the  withdrawl   of  seven   million
men from all the great agricultural
countries of Europe.   These mill-
lion cease to be producers, they
have  become   consumers,���worse
still they have become destroyers
of food.
" While we "all deplore this ~war7
we believe, that the present crisis
will be productive of good results
towards Canada.     Bnsiness  men
and the rank and file are uniting
and showing their heroism in every
way.   They are animated by the
spirit    of  loyalty   and  devotion
which will result in the building
np of a greater Canada, a greater
expansion of manufacturing industries, and a development of a new
field for our commercial activities.
Should the war i continue into
summer of this year the food production of Europe cannot approach
that of normal years.   Looking at
the situation in even its most favorable light, there will be a demand
for food that the world will find
great difficulty in supplyi ng.   Canada is responding promptly to the
call of the Motherland for men and
equipment.     Britain  needs more
than men,  she must have food,���
food this year and food next year.
We are sending of our  surplus.
We should  prepare for a  larger
surplus this year and next year.
The Government ia strongly impressed with the desirability of increasing the crop average it. Canada.   The Canadian farmer, earnestly bending all his energies to increase the food Bupply for the Britisher at home and tito British soldier at the front, is doing his share
in this gigantic Straggle of  the
Empire.

These must be something wrong
with Joe Martin's  Pancras.   He
has bought a plant in Vancouver
and will start a daily paper.   This
entitles  him  to  be  classed as a
humorist.    Joe  is  clever, but he
may learn that while lawyers and
politicians can be manufactured,
editors must be born, to be successful.   He will call his journalistic  baby,   The  Journal.    This
shows a lack of originality.   He
should call it Little Joe, Ambition,
Bull Con, Ego, or some other title
that would make it- attractive to
the public ear.   Martin claims that
he will run an Independent Liberal
paper.   He  probably  will really
run a Martin Liberal sheet, and
endeavor to make all Vancouver
look  through  the ���; some pair of
glasses.   If  the  wires  of genius
from  his  upper   stope   are not
grounded he may succeed.   For a
time at least his paper, should be
full of ginger, even if he does eventually run into a chute of dead ads,
thorns,   overdrafts   and   enraged
subscribers.     Let   us   hold  our
breath, and watch Joe vibrate the
mental ozone with the turbulent
thoughts of a restless and warring
personality.
Pat's First Night in Town
Two Irishmen fresh from Ireland
had just landed in New York and
engaged a room in the top story of
a hotel. Mike, being very sleepy,
threw himself on the bed and was
. oon fast asleep. The sights were
bo new and strange to Pat that he
pat at the window looking out.
Soon an alarm of fire was rung in,
and a fire engine rushed by, throwing up sparks of fire and clouds of
..moke. This greatly excited Plat,
who called his comrade to get up
and come to the window; but Mike
was fast asleep. Another engine
Boon foUowed the first, spouting
smoke and fire like the former.
This was too much for poor Pat,
who rushed excitedly to the bedside, and shaking his friend called
loudly:
"Mike, Mike, wake up! They
are moving Hell, and two loads
have gone by already."
Copper Prospects
Several influences which were
calculated to seriously disturb the
copper market produced no very
perceptible effect. On the one
hand there was fehe news of increasing production and contemplated increase in production from
nearly all the camps, notably
Michigan, Butte, Arizona, New
Mexico, California and Mexico.
It was expected that this news
would depress the market for the
red metal. Ife failed to do so to
any perceptible extent.
The German Admiralty's order
blockading the British coasts and
the northern ports of France
created almost no direct impression
on the price of tbe metal.
Domestic consumers, who have
in the past been rare visitors to
the copper metal market, are absenting themselves almost entirely
for awhile. They are standing
aloof to watch the effect of increasing production aud of the German
embargo on shipments.
If the German embargo had any
perceptible effect on the copper
metal situation it will be to improve the situation of the metal.
Shipments to England and France
are insured by the British Admiralty. Of course, they will be
amply protected by the allied fleets.
And if perchance, a German submarine or mine should sink a shipload of copper already sold, why,
such an event would only strengthen the position of the metal the
more.
With the very perceptible expansion in the iron and steel industries in the United States, domestic consumers will very soon
enter the market for copper, and
enter with a rush. The big spring
orders for may delivery and in part
for April delivery have not yet
been placed. As soon as domestic
customers step into the market,
the price of copper will probably
reach the 15c. point.
As to increased production, tbe
expansion ordered on the part of
producers will add hardly 10,000,-
000 pounds per month to output of
the red metal.' A further expansion is probable: nay, it is necessary.
In the past five months, from
August 31, 1914, to February 1,
1915, foreign and domestic consumption of the red metal, is estimated at 433,000,000 pounds. Refineries in that time have turned
out nofe over 360,000,000 pounds.
Consumption during these five
months has exceeded the refineries' production by 123,000,000
pounds, and the mines' production
by over 150,000,000 pounds, or at
the rate of 30,000,000 pounds of
the red metal every month.
The expansion of but 10,000,000
pounds in monthly output from
the mines is therefore hardly more
than a drop in the bucket.
The market has stood the expansion-very. _ well, and, another
will probably be in order in the
near future. However, a resumption to full normal capacity will
take place only by very slow and
eaBy stages.���N. Y. Mining Age.
Ore Testing
Spokane, Wash., Feb. 17.���An
ore testing department for the purpose of determining the constituents, values and uses of ores,
rocks and chemical deposits submitted from any part of the northwest has been organized as a new
I feature of the annual Northwest
Mining convention to be held in
Spokane, February 22 to 27.
This feature has been added
with the idea of developing new
and hitherto unknown mineral resources of the northwest. According to Frank A. Ross, the mining
engineer and president of the Mining Men's club, th6 geological formation of this entire region warrants a belief in the existence of
many valuable industrial deposits
that are as yet unrecognized.
"For instance," states Mr. Rosp,
"there are undoubtedly large deposits, of bauxite from which alum-
ium is smelted, and also radium-
bearing ores.
"We have been so busy developing our gold, silver, lead and
copper mines that little or no attention has been paid to the so-
called industrial minerals, such as
mica, asbestos, etc. With our ore-
testing department we will be able
to tell the public the values and
uses of minerals that hitherto have
escaped identification. Ife is our
hope that this may result in marked
commercial activity alone lines entirely new to this section. This
year we have invited the Washington State college to take charge of
this department, and the work
will be assigned to the various
colleges of the northwest in future
years."

WHEN IN NELSON
Hudson Bay Ry.
Considering the obstacles which
had to be faced, really remarkable
progress has been made on the
Hudson's Bay Bail way during the
past year under the energetic administration of Hon. Frank Cochrane. A year ago there was 130
miles completely graded and 25
miles partially graded. This year's
operations has extended the completed grade to mileage 240, and
54 miles further on is partially
graded. In 1913 there were laid
103 miles of track, and by the end
of this month trains will be able to
run to mileage 214. A ��� telegraph
line has also been built to mileage
175, showing 155 miles of wire
strung this season. In addition,
seven standard tanks and six trestles have been built.
From the progress made this
year the road should be completed
into Fort Nelson in 1915, and the
tracks and other equipment placed
in readiness for the 1916 crop.
Last April a team road was
started from the end of the steel to
Port Nelson. In December it had
reached Kettle Rapids, and by the
middle of February will be at Port
Nelson. This will mean a big
saving, as supplies can be brought
by train to the end of the steel and
then teamed to the Bay.
Incidentally, the Hudson's Bay
Railway is probable the most direct line for the distance in Canada. From Le Pas to Port Nelson
is 424 miles, and this is only 22
miles longer than a direct air Une,
The past, as it were, rises before
me like a dream. Again we are in
the great struggle for national life.
We hear the sound of preparation
���the music of the boisterous
drums, the silver voices cf the
heroic bugles. We see thousands
of assemblages, and hear fehe appeal
of orators, we see the pale faces of
women and the flushed faces of
men; and in those assemblages we
see all the dead who dust we have,,
covered with flowers. We lose
sight of them no more. We are
with them when they enlist in the
great army of freedom. We see
them part with those they love.
Some are walking for the last time
in quite, woody places with the
maidens they adore. We hear the
whisperings and the sweet vows of
eternal love as they lingeringly
part forever. Others are bending
over cradles kissing babes that are
asleep. Some are receiving the
blessings of old men. Some are part'
ing with mothers who hold them and
press them to their hearts again and!
again, and say nothing; and some
are talking with wives and endeavoring, with brave words spoken in the old tones, to drive, away
the awful fear. We see them part.
We see the wife standing in the
door with the babe in her arms���
standing in the sunlight eobbing.
Afe the turn of the road a hand
waves���she answers by holding
high in her loving hands the child.
He is gone and forever.
We see them all aB they march
proudly away under the flaunting
flags, keeping time to the wild,
grand music of war���marching
down the streets of the great cities
���through the towns and across
the prairies���down to the fields of
glory, to do and die for the eternal
right. We go with them one and
all. We are by their side on all
the glory fields, in all the hospitals
of pain, on all the weary marches.
We stand guard with them in the
wild storm and under the quiet
stars. We are with them in the
ravines running with blood���in the
furrows of old fields. We are with
them between the contending
hosts,, unable to move, wild with
thirst, the life ebbing slowly away
among the withered leaves. We
see them pierced by balls and torn
with Bhells in the trenches of forts.
aud in the whirlwind of the charge,
where men became iron with nerves
of steel. We are with them in the
prisons of hatred and famine, but
human speech can never tell what
they endured. We are home when
the news comes that they are dead.
We see the maiden in the show of
her sorrow. We see the silvered
head of the old man bowed with
the last grief. The past rises before us. We hear tile roar and
shriek of the bursting shell. The
broken fetters fall. These heroes
died.   We look.   Instead of slaves

the auction .block, the slave pen

These  heroes are dead.   They
died for liberty���they died for us.
They are at rest.   They sleep in
the land they made free, under tbe
flag they rendered saintless, under
the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks,
the tearful willows,, the embracing
vines'.    They sleep  beneath  the
shadows of  the  clouds,   careless
alike ot sunshine or storm, each in

Cost of a Failure
In Russia a man, intending to
kill himself, go in front of a railway train, but was pulled aside.
Then the authorities took him
in charge. They fined him for disorderly conduct, imprisoned him
for imperiling human life and gave
him solitary confinement for inter-
cpting travel. It seems to be painfully difficult to leave Bussia by
