Angus Cameron recently located some chromite
claims, a short distance west of Rock Creek, about 20
miles from Greenwood. A piece of float chromite was
thrown into his auto, while at the claims, and remained
therefor several_ days. Upon examination Cameron found
eight beautiful diamonds encrusted in the clay sticking to
the chromite. One of these was half the size of a pea.
Another is much larger, but its size has not yet been determined, owing to the clay with which it is encrusted.
The find has caused a sensation, aud one prospector states
that diamonds may be found within a mile of Greenwood.
In addition to chromite, platinnm and other valuable
minerals, Greenwood promises to be the centre of a
diamond field. That would make it a very lively mining

Fishermen Take Notice
After quoting from Our Da cab
Animals a short editorial which
urged the killing of all fish as soon
as they are taken from the water,
and opposed the use of such live
bait as fregs and other fish, the
editor of the The Humane Angler
adds, what we are positive the
majority of men aud boys who fish
do not know:
"Fishing with the artificial lure
is the humane way and the mosfe
eport-producing way. Frogs killed
before being impaled on the hook
as bait are more alluring than the
live frogs.���F.H.R.

Selling Value in Proportion to Producing Value
Sales of school lands have been
held at various places in Saskatchewan and Alberta during thc past few
days, invariably they havc attracted
large numbers of buyers and thc majority of pieces offered were quickly

sonic  158 parcels  were      sold,      thc
i highest price being $47 per acre. One
j hundred and twenty-four parcels
were sold at prices from $18 to $47

War-Time Clothes
Problems of What to   Wear
by the Government
All women engaged in official war
work have thc problem of what to
wear solved for them by their government, as a rule. There are other
women who arc just as truly engaged in war work but its performance
docs not remove them from the generality of women. The question of
what to wear is, however, a most
important one. The great consideration is to secure suitable material,
eliminate as much as possible in the
way of laundry work that comes under the head of "luxuries" and never
for one instant look dowdy or���what
some women abhor almost as much���
just "serviceable."
Femininity has set its brains to
work and there is a general agreement that thc one-piece frock is most
satisfactory. If one must have
blouses the recommendations is for
dark ones with dainty guimpes which
can be renewed easily and frequently,
suffer comparatively little from their
visit to the laundry and always look
dainty and fresh. Both time and
money arc saved by using    guimpes,

Increasing Bulkheads
New Type  of    Unsinkable    Ship
Being  Built in  America
A new type of "unsinkable ship"
is being built in America. It has become known that contracts for ten
of the vessels have been let by the
French government to an American
yard. The design is the work of a
Frenchman and embodies principles
hitherto untried, details of which are
being kept  secret.
Since the adverse report ou thc
buoyance box system, tried out in
thc steamer Lucia, the shipping
board has not undertaken any new
efforts to frustrate the work of submarine torpedoes. Work is continuing, however, on increasing the
number of bulkheads in vessels,
which was begun some weeks ago.
It has been learned that thc Germans had to use three torpedoes to
gink thc transport President Lincoln,
because the increased number of
bulkheads prevented the last two explosions front flooding sufficient
space to sink the vessel.

The recent advances of the Germans, hc said, were due to the fact
that they brought up large numbers
of men and flung them into battle,
regardless of casualties.
Between thc Americans and lhe
Canadians a strong feeling of friendliness has grown up. The Americans
were proud, he said, to fight with
troops from their own side of the
world who had since thc beginning
of the war performed many deeds
of heroism, while thc Canadians
were happy to fight shoulder to
shoulder with the Americans.
It was the conviction of Captain

About 300,000 Germans and Austrians

German and Austrian troops now

and runs through Pskov, Oshsa,
Kurst, Valuiki, Novo Tcl.crka and

thc Bolshcviki are in control, although German submarines are reported lo bc guarding thc entrance

Turkish troops, the strength of

military authorities, have advanced
in Trans-Caucasia from Batum on
the Black Sea to a point a few miles

German and Austrian troops arc

They arc supported by 50,000 White

The Passing of
Childhood Friends
Another Sad Touch to the Cruel Toll
of Warftftftft.ft
There will be genuine regret over
a little news item that comes from
Switzerland ��� regret which, . The
Cleveland Plain: Dealer obverves,
will be felt not alone by the ordinary
sentimental reader. The most ardent food conservationist will experience a thrill of pity as hc reads that,
"owing to food shortage, the monks
of St. Bernard have been obliged to
kill all but six of their famous St.
Bernard dogs."
The paragraph will stir the memory of many. It will travel back to.
tlie old picture that . appealed to
childhood imagination ��� thc big,
handsome,- mild-cycd dog who has
found a lost traveller, half-buried in
the whirling snow of the Alpine Pass.
The dog carries a small cask of supplies tied to his neck, and is baying
to attract thc attention of his masters.
A short history of the Hospice of
St. Bernard is furnished by our
Cleveland contemporary. It is situated in a pass of the Alps between
Piedmont and the. Swiss canton of
Valais. Tt was founded nearly a
thousand years ago by Bernard dc
Menthau,.- and: for all these, centuries
it has been famous for its unfailing
succor to travellers���and for its dogs.
Very early in thc history of the Hospice dogs were trained to .find unfortunates who had been lost in the
snow in their endeavor to thread
this difficult .mountain pass, and
many centuries ago the noble breed
that takes its name from the monastery was  developed..
The news that necessity has driven the monks to kill most of their
beloved animals adds another sad
touch to thc cruel toll of war. But
thc breed of St. Bernards is not wip- ���
cd out because the good hospitallers
have had to practise euthanasia upon
their heloycd. pack, though, a picturesque and age-old institution suffers.

"Flying Cowboys" is thc popular
title given to Uncle Sam's first lighting corps, in  Italy.

in southern Italy are frequent visitors in Rome, as they all wear the
United States army service hat, popularly known here" as the "cowboy"

Canadians      Learning     More   Than
Ever Before the Attractions
of Home  Country
"Summer travel is good in Canada
tins year, despite the war and some
inclement weather," said iir. \V. J.J.
Snell, general passenger agent of the
j C. P. R��� eastern, lines, yesterday.
I "In fact tlie war has had two oul-
j standing effects so far as Canada is
concerned. Conditions with regard to
foreign travel have become so expensive and so restricted that Canadians have been almost compelled
to learn something" about the advantages of tlie Dominion as a holiday resort. At the same time the ordinary wage earner has had such
opportunities for making money that
an unprecedented number of working people have been able to indulge their lifelong desire to take
their wives and family back to their
old homes and sec 'the old folks at
home.' This latter feature of travel
has been very marked during the
past year, and is more in evidence
than ever this summer. In all parts

Three Canadian ex-soldiers, wtio
Avcrc blinded overseas in the service

qualified to practice massage professionally. They arc Pte. Peter

/ The course of training through
which these men have passed during
the' past ycar was given at tlie Halifax School for the Blind, where they
were placed by the vocational branch
of the department of soldiers civil
"It is of interest to note," stated
Mr. W. K. Segsworth, administrator
of the vocational branch, "that before the war Donaldson was a clerk,
Hopkins a station agent, and Sterling
was a train conductor Thc success
which thc department has had in fitting these men for a new occupation

with disabled men. I may say that
although these men have graduated

Make One of Conflict's Greatest  Achievements
What the American forces have
accomplished in France during the
first eleven months of their participation in the war is described in au
authorized despatch from a correspondent of The London Times. The
Americans, lhe writer says, are rapidly completing the longest and
greatest scheme of communication
ever used in warfare.
"After a fortnight of solid travel,"
he continues, "I am convinced that
what thc Americans have accomplished will rank in history as one
of thc greatest achievements of the
war. For instance, out of the waste
lands adjacent lo an old French port
they have constructed a splendid line
of modern docks, where ships now
arrive daily, discharging men, war
material, cars and machinery. A
huge ncw warehouse system at this
point is nearly completion, in addition to motor parks, cold storage
plants and railway yards with tracks
aggregating 200 miles in length. In
thc car assembling shops steel cars
are being put together at the rale of
a  complete   train  cacli  day.
"Work is proceeding rapidly on a
ncw 20,000-bcd hospital, the "largest
yet to be constructed. There are also
an immense artillery camp and a
remount camp, where I saw several
thousand   horses.
"These port schemes arc being so
well worked out that tlicy are capable of almost unlimited expansion,
which will bc most valuable in pooling lhc allied efforl, for lhc American base ports may easily become
thc main reserve centres for distributing supplies lo rail heads everywhere on the front. Tlie. conditions

Canadian Coal
In Distant Climes
Absolutely Unfounded
Is Idea of Charge Made for Blankets
in Which Soldier Is Buried
There is an absurd but widespread
fable current in army circles, particularly those overseas, to the effect
that there is a charge made against
llie estates of deceased soldiers for
blankets in which thcy are buried.
Nearly every man who has seen service overseas has heard it in some
form or cither, and from inquiries
which have readied lhc militia department it would appear that it has
received some credence at home by
relatives of Canadian soldiers. Such
belief is, of course, absolutely
without foundation in fact, as no
such injustice is practised by
military authorities. The story
one of whole cloth fiction.
Only Canadian Coal Is Being Used
By Hawaiians
How Canadian coal is being used
in Hawaii is shown in a report received by the department of trade
and.commerce from E. Bryana, Canadian trade commissioner at Yokohama. The report states that until
recently the Island of Hawaii received most of their coal,supplies from
Japan, with some shipments from
Australia. Owing to shortage of
cargo space, however, japan and
Australia in 1917 failed to maintain
their coal trade with the islands. For
the same reason, the United States
was unable to ship any coal to Hawaii.
"As a result ol" this famine," thc
report continues, "the Hawaiian Islands turned to Canada for a supply
of'.coal and were able to buy about
50,000 tons from the Pacific coast
coal companies at high prices. It is
reported that nearly all the coal used
in the island now is of Canadian origin,"
vantage to themselves and the country. In fact tlicy arc learning now
what tourists from all over the world
have in years past spent very large
sums to comc to Canada to see and
"In this way, while war conditions
have cut off a good deal of foreign
tourist traffic in Canada, the same
conditions havc so increased home
travel as to more, than offset this.
People arc visiting our own Rockies
instead of going lo Switzerland,. go-
ing_ to Canadian resorts instead of
taking Germ.n waters, taking trips
over the Canadian lakes and rivers,
or to our, own coasts instead of going to American ocean resorts. It is
a curious effect that war should
force Canadians to know their own
country, hut that is one of the results of the European conllagration,
and one that should prove of lasting
benefit-to   Canada."
As a result of these general conditions, Mr. Snell said that passenger
traffic in Canada has. been unusually
good both on the C.P.R. and ou all
Canadian railways, as well as on the
lake and other steamship lines, despite the fact that under war regulations there were no more excursion
or special rates. The rates in lhc
United States had gone up so high,
with a stringent abolition of all excursion or other special rates, that
people were learning more and more
to do their pleasure travel in Canada.
"A good deal of this is due to the
fact that wages in Canada arc higher
than ever before," said Mr. Snell.
"Where a few years ago men were
getting $12 to $15 a .week thcy are
now getting $18 and even $25. Despite increased coast of living people
arc getting better, off and many
men arc able to indulge their desires to revisit their old homes, and
it is surprising thc number who
arc; taking this method of spending
their holidays.
"Canadians arc learning more than
ever before the attractions of the
Canadian resorts, and the knowledge
they arc. acquiring, as a result of the
war should mean a good deal in future ycars in keeping our. holiday
money at home, as well as attracting
tourists from other lands."

"What eyes tlicy will make in
Paris, your majesty," said one of his
listeners, carried away by thc emperor's description,  Rosncr adds.
"Yes," replied thc emperor, "you
would like,  to  see those  eves."
A further 'suggestion from thc
same listener that the Germans
would get where they could sec
"those eyes"  elicited no  reply.

alongside two unconscious British
soldiers. He called a medical attendant to administer brandy to the
men, to stay and bandage their
wounds and to arrange for their

After supper the men's thoughts
turned to the British lads and Rosncr represents the monarch as saying: .'.���'.

and means given to.us. A beaten
enemy is no longer an enemy for us.

A Big* Crop is Hoped For
Every  Grain  of Foodstuffs  Will Be
All hopes centre on thc 1918 crop
of North America. Of all crops thc
wheat crop is tlie most vital. Thc
Canadian wheat crop estimates for
1918, issued hy the census and statistical hranch, put thc increased
wheat area at 1,324,950 acres and 425-
600 acres increase in oats. Unofficial
estimates from those in close touch
with conditions in the west place thc
increased wheat acreage at.._ over
2,000,000 acres in the prairie provinces alone. Given rain there will hc
an immense grain crop iu the west,
in fact -increased grain crops
throughout the Dominion. The only
anxiety then will he as to the harvest. Where are tlie men to comc
from? Some will come from the
United States, no doubt, because
their harvest operations are over
earlier than ours, but it is said that
50,000 men will be needed in the
wTest alone. People of ���"towns will
have to organize their affairs so as
to get out on the farms when thc
time comes. Otherwise the harvest
will bc only partially saved and every grain of foodstuffs will bc wanted. The acreage in Cr.nada is thc
highest ever recorded.
Saving to U. S. Farmers
Mexican sisal growers have entered into an agreement with the food
administration to sell in thc U. S.
500,000 bales of this year's sisal, crop
at a price three cents a pound below
that received last year. Food Administrator Hoover said he estimated
the agreement would save American
farmers approximately $6,000,000 on
binder twine next year.

In a lecture at Penticton, Lieut.
E. R, Howells told of th<3 fighting
Ghurkas from India and their
many peculiar traits when going
into action. These men are generally silent and morose when there
is nothing doing, but when the
order to prepare for attack is given
their placid countenances break
into smiles and off comes tunic,
boots and socks, rifles are thrown
away, and when the word is given
the black men rush gladly and
enthusiastically into the thick of
the fight each one tightly gripping
a deadly knife which is the only
weapon he can see merit in. Each
man has his own peculiar preference for different parts of the
human anatomy, and bis standing
ae a fighter is enhanced according
to the number of ears, fingers,
toes, or even heads which he collects from the Germans and brings
back to his own trenches. He has
been known to go tho length of
stringing the ears, noses, etc., ou
wire, and according to the length
of thc string he is looked upon as
a brave or indifferent soldier.
The British government however, frowned on this mode of warfare, and this together with the
fact that the Ghurka is an expensive piece of war machinery on account of his having to be refitted
after each engagement explains the
reason why so few of them are now
to be seen on the battle fields of
Editor This IvKdce,
Greenwood, B.C.
Df.a.r Sik: A correspondent in
your issue of August Sth linked the name
of Mrs. Eddy with "stoic philosophy"
in a way that might convey to the uninformed reader an impression that Christian Science is in some way related to
stoicism. The fallacy of such an assumption is readily seen by a careful perusal
of her writings.
The stoics were confessed materialists,
although their conduct may have been
more idealistic than was exhibited by the
devotees of other heathen philosophies.
Christian Scientists, however, are not
stoics. Their understanding of the
Scriptures, as spiritually interpreted iu
the Christian Science text book, ".'cieuce
and Health with Key to the Scriptures"
by Mrs. Eddy, leads naturally and logically to the recognition that all real being is spiritual, and therefore to the denial ofuiatter as being anything more
than expressions of human error.
Humanity, it is coming to be seen, is
suffering from too much materialism, a.id
needs to get back lo the spiritual sense of
all things. Christian Science finds in
the Master's teachings the way out of
materiality, and is pointing out this way
to mankind. This way is not stoicism,
but Christianity.
Yours truly,
Samuki. Grkenwood.

Don't Overlook The Possibilities Of The Telephone
Did you ever notice how some people shout into the telephone? They think because the party they are talking to is
some distance away, that the tone of voice must be loud. They
forget that the conversation tone is all thatjis.neeied.
It is the same with the long distance telephone. Some
people have the idea that because the party wanted is distant;
it is not possible to talk to them���the voice cannot carry
that far. The voice may not carry that far, but itjts easily
carried by wire any distance, owing to modern invention. No
matter how far your friend is away, you can couverse by telephone without difficulty.   Try it some time.
