Those arc days of speed. People demand rapidity in every,
thing. The jitney found a place iij urban traffic because it
gave quicker transportation. The automobile revolutionized
commercial conditions.
But, faster than all is the telephone. The field of the
telephone is not circunftcribcd���anywhere, everywhere; it is
the same tp the telephone.   And all in a moment, too.
No necessity to travel,  even by the fastest carriers,  when

A Preferred Criminal
Is justice meted out to poor and
rich alike in Canada? It came out,
in the House of Commons this
week that Thos. Kelly, one of the
convicted persons in the Manitaba
scandal, is still being treated like a
gentleman. He is not wearing
prison clothing, he has special diet,
and his hair has not been shorn
like that of other criminals. The
reason given that he is in a precarious state of health, and ordinary criminal treatment might cause
a complete nervous break-down.
Requests for Kelly's liberation
bad been made. The reasons given
were his advanced age, very bad
state of health, large family, two
sons at the front, his expressed
willingness to make restitution of
any money which it might be legally ascertained he was liable^ for_
and that, though sentenced on
November 16, 1916, he bad been
in prison in connection with the
offence continually since October,
1915.
We can't help wondering how
much any of these considerations
wonld prevail if he were .a poor
bricklayer who had stolen $50.���

Jimmy   Oliver,      Greenwood's
youngest   soldier,    has   paid   the
supreme sacrifice.    He  was but a
boy, but played a  man's part.    It
is hard for those,   who  knew him
so well, to realize he is gone.    He
bad many splendid  qualities,   and.
proved himself a true hero, by giv-.
ing  his life  unflinchingly   in   de-.
fence of us, and  the empire.    The
following letter from his Chaplain,
J.    H.   White,   should   make   ns
realize, that we owe Jimmy Oliver
a debt we can never repay.
The hearts of the whole community go out in sympathy to his
mother, Mrs. Oliver, who has
given her husband and two sons,
and has now to bear the hardest
part���the loss.    Letter follows:
"I deeply regret having to confirm the sad intelligence already
sent you of the death of your brave
young son Pfee. J. Oliver who was
killed in action on the morning of
the 9dh April. He took part in a
big engagement that day and was
severely hit by shrapnel and machine gun fire, from which he instantly expired. He knew no pain
in suffering whatever. He was a
fine fearless young lad, very -popular with all the boys, afraid of
nothing and always ready and
willing to do his part and share
any danger. He died like a hero
at his post of duty. He did the
best he could, and gave all that a
man could give, in order to protect his home and country from
the hands of a ruthless tyrant.
I am aware of your heavy
loss in the past, and of the
noble sacrifices you personally,
have made, in giving a husband
and two sons in this cause. May,-
God most gracioasly sustain you
and ail TOtt~moi_--_��octt-a��.-yon--_honRft'..__,
hold, in"-this fiery trial through
which you are passing. The deeds
of your whole family will never
die. They will have a place in the
annals of our country for all time.
Let me assure you of my deep
personal sympathy with you in the
losses you have sustained, particularly now in the loss of Jimmie,
I pray God that He may comfort
and uphold you by his grace in the
most trying hour that has come to
you."

We Are Partners
There is practical reciprocity between tho "United States and Canada now. so far as foodstuffs are
concerned. If an obstacle to the
free exchange of products remains,
it is likely soon to be removed.
Therefore, the United States and
Canada will plow, harrow, and
plant this spring, and reap and
gather, next fall, to all intents and
purposes, as one nation and with
one great object in view. The interest of the United States in Canada's planting will be as keen as
the interest it will feel iu planting
on its own side of the line, and
vice versa- Canada has sent hundreds of thousands of its young
men to the front. It is, therefore,
in greater need of material for
farm labor than the United States,
The United States cannot help the
Dominion farmer without helping
itself. This would be reason
finnngh for giving the help needed,
if there were not a still higher one,
a reason that springs from a sense
of common gratitude. The hundreds of thousands of young men
whom Canada has sent to the front
have been righting the battles of
the ITnited States, as Well as the
battles of the Dominion, the Empire, and the Allies for the laBt
two and a half years.���C. S. Monitor.
A Soldier Woman
Flora Sands, an English woman
and sergeant in the Serbian army,
was Wounded in action. The Serbians were attacking Hill e212, the
hill Which must be taken to open
the gate of Monastir, Twice or
three times they had been repulsed.
Another attack had been; ordered
and the company in which Miss
Sands is sergeant had been sent
forward in reserve. Her captain
came to her.
"If we go forward you are to
stay behind,"   said he.    "We do
not wish  to lose you  and this is
rough work today."
Miss Sands saluted. Her company laid in the shallow trenches,
the water soaking through their
garments, the snow falling. On
ahead another company had filtered into tho tiny rifle pits from
which the Serbs launched their
rush, and which had been pushed
forward within grenade distance
of the enemy line. The word came
and the company ahead made its
dash. Men leaped up in the German trenches and stood on the firing benches, their rifles ready.
Mitrailleuse cracked. Arms swung
back from tha gray shoulders, and
that most deadly of all weapons,
the hand grenade, began to roar
and flash among the charging men.
The company ahead faltered.
"Dobra?" shouted the men of
Miss Sands' company.
That means "good" sometimes.
This time it meant "go." No
orders had been given to charge.
These Serbs know when the time
has come and do not wait for orders. They went forward and Miss
Sands went with them ���of
course," as she would say. Her
men went over the trench and held
it.
Next clay it was still filled with
the dead. In hand grenade range
of that murderous light���say one
hundred feet���a bomb struck Miss
Sauds' revolver. It tore the gun
almost in two. Two weeks later
twenty-two pieces of shrapnel were
removed from her side. The larger and more obvious pieces had
been taken out at once. Only the
tiny ones birdshot size, remained
to be found by the rays. It was
so she won tbe Cross of St. Sauv-
eur.
"What sort of a soldier do you
make?" a friend asked her in the
hospital. The friend had known
her long enough to be inquisitive.
"Just as good a soldier as a
man." said she. "Except that I
cannot run as fast. They always
outdistance me in the charge."
There was a note of regret in her
voice.
It is likely that Miss Sands came
to Serbia first in the spirit of adventure. Croydon, her English
home, is distinguished by pleasant
monotony rather than by thrills in
its daily life. Mnat folk wooia
find it dull. The Sands family
consisted of brothers who went in
for hardier sports and the one
daughter. Naturally enough, perhaps, she went into hunting fields
with them. She shot in Africa
and fish in Newfoundland. War
offered fresh sensations.
At first she came as a nurse,
though she knew nothing about
nursing. She was one of the two
heroines of Yaljevo, the typhus-
soaked town in which no one lived
but sick men, and 90 per cent, of
them died. The deaths were
counted by thousands. Bodies
were hauled out each morning
from the hospital in the army forage carts. With two American
doctors���one died���and only Austrian prisoners for orderlies, the
two women passed the winter in
the maelstrom of "plague. Both
went down with typhus, and by a
miracle both lived.
Then came the great retreat.
As a qualified nurse Miss Sands
accompanied the Serbian army.
By this time it was not adventure
that called her. Like every one
else who sees at close range the
heroic endurance and the dashing
courage of the Serbian soldiers; her
heart had been enlisted. She was
in the ruck of the retreat, and the
Austrians were shooting at the
company she was with. The sports
women declined to offer herself as
game. She picked up a rifle and
began to fire back. Day after day
3be lived with the rear guard,
lighting as soldiers fight.
"You must not do this," said
an officer one day. "You are a non-
combatant." Miss Sands laughed
and fired again at the Austrian
line.
''Does this," said she. "look as
if I a to a non-combatant?"
So she was mustered into the
army to save her, in case the Austrians should make her prisoner.
She was made sergeant because she
won the promotion. She had
money and was able to secure food
for her men when others were dying of starvation on the road. She
had always mothered her company,
the Serbians say. Certain it is
that the private soldier love her
and that she is treated with the
respect the Serb invariably shows
to a lady. Tbe officers treat her
rs one of themselves. She wears
an officer's uniform and at a little
distance would be accepted by the
stranger as an officer.

Spokane men have a bond on the

near Nicola.
Good gold, lead and silver values are being found in the Rnby,

LaBt year Alaska produced minerals valued at 853,000,000, an
increase of $20,000,000 over the
previous year.
Two cars of talc were shipped
during 1916 from near the shore of
Anderson Lake, near the mouth of
McGillivray Creek.
It is time that the iron ore deposits on Vancouver Island were
developed, and blast furnaces
erected at the coast.
T. J. Corwin has an option on
the Lucky Mike near Merritt, and
has a diamond drill working on
the property. Some promising
copper ore has already been shipped from the Blue Grouse, at Cowichan Lake, to the Ladysmith
smelter.
The opening of the Pacific Great
Eastern railway has proved a great
advantage to the camps in the
Lillooet mining division, as previous to that event the district was
so remote from rail transportation
that the excessive freig ht rates retarded progress.
Grand Forks mining division
had 31 specimens of local ores and a
number of smelter products on exhibition at the recent Panama-
California Expositions. Twenty-
three samples were classed as copper, or as gold-copper ores, 4 as
gold ores and 4 as sliver or silver-
lead ores.
Sflllllkuuicon     mining      division
was represented at the Panama-
California Expositions by about
two tons of copper or gold-copper
ores, mainly from Copper Mountain, near Princeton, and by a
number of silver or silver-lead ores
from Whipsaw creek and other
points in the division. A cabinet
of platinum nuggets, from Tulameen river, interested a large number of mining men and other visitors.
During 1916 a shipment of molybdenite ore was made from mineral
claims on Texas creek, a tributary
of the Fraser river, that empties
into it on- the west side about 20
miles south from Lillooet Station,
on the Pacific Great Eastern railway. The shipment contained
nine tons of molybdenite which
carried 16 per cent, molybdenite.
The operators of this property are
greatly handicapped because of the
remoteness from transportation and
rough trail from the claims to the
Lillooet wagon road.
F. Keffer said to the Spokane
Review last week: "Fifteen carloads of copper concentrates have
been produced since the beginning
of milling operations last January.
The net value of the product is
527,000 to $30,000. Only an estimate is possible, as settlement has
���ot been made on some lots and
others are in storage. Twelve car-
loids have been shipped to the
smelter and three are at Ashcroft,
B. C. ' 'The rate of improvement in
the performance of the mill may
be gathered from the statement
that early shipments had brought
$ 12000 to $2,000 net, or an average of $1700 to the carload, as
compared with an average of
$22,000 on the last three carloads.
At the same time it is fair to state
that tables only were used and low
grade ore only fed in January and
February. A clearer indication of
the performance is provided by tbe
rate of extraction in each of the
last three months. The average
of February was 77.3 per cent copper, March 80.4 per cent and April
87.36 per cent. I have no doubt
but that the 90 per cent point will
be reached this month. At the
same time the quantity of ore delivered to the mill is nearing its
capacity, which is 50 tons daily.
Operations in (he main mine have
been confined to the proving of ore
on tbe tunnel, where little depth
has been attained."

Float
FLOAT is not a periodical. It is a book containing 86 illustrations all
told, and is filled with
sketches and stories of
western life. It tells how
a gambler cashed in after
the flush days of Sandon ;
how it rained in New Denver long after Noah was
dead; how a parson took a
drink at Bear Lake in
early days; how justice
was dealt in Easlo in '93;
how the saloon man out-
prayed tile women in Kalamazoo, and graphically depicts the roamings of a
western editor among the
tender-feet in the cent belt.
It contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens
of articles too numerous .
