Writing from a war hospital in
England to Tbe Ledge, A. N.
Mowat says under date of April 17:
Dear Colonel,
Here   I  am once more in
England lying in the hospital with
three   wounds.     Wasn't    Easter
Monday  a   glorious day   for   the
Canadians,    when   we drove old
Fritz from  his  strongly   fortified
trenches on   Vimy   Ridge.    That
old fake Hindenburg thought we
couldn't do it and had massed his
best troops against us, but in spite
of that we were successful a frontage of Hi miles.    Gladly, would I
take ten times tbe punishment just
to be in such another glorious attack.    I have been iu  many ������ attacks.    I was at Ypres, St. Eloie,
Armentieres and the Somme, but
all put together cannot be compared  with that Vimy  Ridge attack.    Fritz   put up   a  stubborn
resistance in  places,  but we soon
overpowered him and then ruBh on
to his next line.    We had orders
to take no prisoners that day, bat
it is pretty hard  to kill  a man
when he is on his knees pleading,
Mercy kamerad!    I was so disgusted with some of them that I
just shoved them aside and rushed
on, leaving the poor brutes for the
moppers up,  to capture.    It was
the greatest battle of the war and
the biggest battle in the history of
the world.   The first time I was
hit, was received just, as I reached
the Huns first lines, when a sniper
shot me through the fleshy part of
the leg,  but,   I up and at them
again.   The second wound was received between the German-third
and.f-_.ur._h lines. when "a piece of
shrapnel    landed    in   my    right
shoulder.     This   nearly-Jcnocked
meout,but,  as our officer was hit
early in the game, I was the only
one left to lead the platoon on.
So, on we went- until wejeached
our  objective,   where  we had.a
strong point to establish.   I was
waving frantically for the machine
gun crew to come forward, (no use
shouting for the voice could not be
heard a yard  away)  when bingo
something   hit  me   on   the  left
shoulder.   That   put   me  out of
action,  However, I told the machine gunners where to place their
gun and saw the rest of the platoon
start the work of consolidation and
then started for the nearest dressing station five miles away. When
I got about a mile, I was so weak
that I thought I could go' no further, when lo, and behold I noticed
three Germans hiding in   a shell
hole.     When    they   noticed  me
down went their rifles and up went
their hands.     So,   I   approached
them pretending I was as fierce as
a tiger.   I made them take off their
equipment and searched them for
concealed   weapons,    then   made
them carry   me   to the   dressing
station while I ehowed them the
way.   This just goes to show how
easy it is to take prisoners and how
there is no fight left in  the Huns.
So here I am resting well, with no
pain and being well looked after.
I tell you a man  might well feel
proud to be in that glorious drive
and the Canadians are wonderful.
They go into a charge with a cheer,
repulse an attack with determination and endure their many hardships without a murmur.    Many
and many a man have I seen lying
on the battlefield, bleeding, battered,  but,  never a single word of
complaint,  no single word of regret for having come to the war,
and the gratitude of these men.
An easing of the arm or leg, a few
empty sand bags for a pillow? *
mouthful of water and they wonld
look up at you with snch wistful
eyes and although the shells would
be bursting all around them and
some   of   them   suffering  intense
pain they  would say, "Stay with
it lad!" "Stick to it!"   That is tbe
spirit of the Canadian army; that
is the spirit that make* the Canadians fight eo gallantly for Conntry, for Empire and for the sacred
cause of Justice.
This is a very large hospital,
over several miles of corridors. It
will be several months before I am
fit again, bat. by that time I hope
the war will be over.

A. L. Bass is examining, the

Princeton, with a view to it being
re-opened by J. B. Tilsley and his
partners. The property has ��� a
large area and is traversed by two

and 12 feet wide. One body is
opened by the tunnel, by which
the coal was followed frbm^the"sur-~
face, and the other body is reached
by a crosscut from the tunnel.
The yield of the mine, which has
not been large, was consumed in
Spokane chiefly. The coal is regarded as of a good domestic quality. It is traversed by but one rib
of slate, which is soft and is readily and economically eliminated-by
screening. Part of the tunnel collapsed in a period of idleness.
Restoration is encouraged1 by the
increased demand for coal, part of
which may come from Prindeton

Ulster is rich iu undeveloped
coal, for, in addition to tho Tyrone
coal field and several other mineral
areas, it contains a coal area of
singular richness, not only in coal
but in iron ore and mineral oil.
This is known as the Ballycastle
coal fields of Couuty Antrim, laid
open to view for about lour miles
along the coast between the village
of Ballycastle and Fair Head.
Coal and iron stone have been
wrought here for several centuries,
but sparingly, and a large quantity remains unworked, estimated
at about 14,000,000 to 15,000;000
tons from one seam alone. The
"black band" iron stone was formerly shipped in large quantities
to the Ayrshire factories, and the
shales are so rich in oil as frequently to ignite spontaneously. A company has been formed for working
this coal field, and the harbor was
prepared for shipping, when the
war broke out and operations were
brought to a close. So much for

But there are other minerals of
value which are being mined in
that part of Ireland. Pisolitic iron
ore occurs in a bed about three
feet in thickness, consisting of
hematite. This bed underlies a
logo area, ana has been mined in
various places. The ore has been
carried down to Lame Harbor for
shipment to the British furnaces
by narrow-guage lines. Immediately under the pisolite comes a
bed of ferruginous clay called
"bole," of no value, but it, in
turn, rests upon a formation of extreme importance as the source of
aluminium, and known as "bauxite." From this compound mineral the aluminium is extracted near
Larne in a pure condition of white
powder, and is shipped to Foyers,
in Loch Ness, in Scotland, where,
by the dynamo electric plant, it is
converted into the metal now in
universal use for purifying iron
and steel and for the manufacture
of objects of household use.

Helped in Oil Fields
, Oil drillers from Lambton County
were in Bpumania as oil drillers
from Lambton County are in all
parts of tbe earth where wells
have been sunk. Two or three
advance agents of the exodus of
Canadian oil drillerB from Boum-
ania have already been heard from.
Their story ia a record of good
work for the allies and of disappointment for Germany in oil fields
of Roumania.
Boumania's production of oil
was 12,000,000 barrels, value 830,-
000,000. Boumania's output of
oil waB 3 per cent, of the world's
production in 1915. Germany's
conquest of the Roumanian oil
fields was expected to give the
Teutons an immediate supply of
1,000,000 barrels of oil per month
from Roumania with the extra
supply secured when Germany
speeded np production.
Oil drillers from Lambton County
report that the Roumanian production of oil will be absolutely nil
until new wells are drilled. The
Canadian oil drillers worked with
the British officers in the Roumanian oil fields. Their letters tell
of the complete destruction of
machinery: and ���buildings in the
Roumanian fields; As for" the
wells, a Canadian says:
"Iron was dropped down the
bore of every well and concrete
poured in on top of the iron.
When the drill gets through the
concrete it strikes fehe iron.   The

The Cotton-Belt
It is reported that the Granby
people _*ave taken an option on a
large block of claims locally known
as the Cotton-belt, situated at the
head of the Seymour Arm of Shuswap Lake, north of Sicamous.
The ore deposits are principally
galena, and the lessees wPl prospect the property this summer
with a diamond drill It is also
said that the owners of a mining
property located on the east side of
the Shuswap Lake, about five miles
north of Sicamous, are contemplating reuewal of development
work. At this point some seven
years ago a group of Chicago capitalists carried out extensive exploration work, and these same interests, who also have large holdings in the vicinity of Golden
which they coutemplate developing
this summer, still retain the claims.
It this activity would prove au
actual fact, Sicamous should be a
lively point this summer, as all ore
taken out will have to be brought
there on scows and transferred to
care for shipment to the smelter,���
Kamloops Standard-Sentinel.

It is the finish that is the win or

nor let oft-repeated falls discourage thee. Itiee up quietly from
every defeat, and go brayely forward, keeping thine eyes and thy
heart steadfastly fixed npon the
goal: "He that Cometh shall inherit all things." Never give up
fehe battle, but renew it day by
day, and thou shall be numbered
with the "overcomers'' at the
"finish" of the race.

the flush days of Sandon ;
how it rained in New Denver long after Noah was
