lost in an accident was invited to
tea. "My dear," paid the good
lady of the house to her little
daughter, "I want you to be very
particular and to make no remarks
abont Mr. J 's riose."    Around
the table everything was going on
well. Then the child -.began.-' to
peep and looked puzzled. At last
she started the company with,
"Ma, why did you tell me to say
nothing about Mr. J-���-'s nose?
He hasn't got any."

Registration Day, Saturday, 22nd
Jnne, has been decided upon as a
necessary preliminary to the exercise of Canada's maximum power
in the great conflict in which the
world is engaged. It is a necessary preliminary for the reason
that the country cannot exert its
fall strength in any enterprise unless it determines beforehand the
measure of that strength. Registration Day will enable the War
Administration of Canada to see
that, as far as is humanly possible,
every ounce of energy available is
made to bear, upon the issue in
Europe, and that the minimum is
lost in useless effort. With fehat
accomplished Canada will have
reached the peak of her war endeavor and, supported by the unwavering determination of her people will carry on until the foe is
finally vanquished.
The Cause reqaires of every
country, as it requires of every individual, the utmost in service.
Canada cannot be snre she is serving to the utmost until she clearly
understands what her maximum
capabilities are. The registration
of every person resident in the
Dominion, male and female, of
sixteen years and over, will provide the information from which
can be deduced the extent of Canada's possible war effort.
B. C. Mining News

Washington and Idaho mine on
Wallace Mountain.
Two car loads of ore were shipped from the Big Copper to fehe
Granby smelter, this week.
Electric power from the Greenwood City Waterworks plant at
Boundary Falls was turned on at
the Providence mine on Wednesday. The power will be used to
operate the hoist.
The Providence mine shipped a
carload of second-grade ore to the
Canada Copper smelter this week.
This makes the sixth car of ore
that has been taken out of this
mine since it opened up last fall.
Cat Catches Gophers
A correspondent in L03 Angeles
sends us this account of a cat who
certainly earns his living: ���
A near-by neighbor of veracity
has a large yellow cafe, five years
old, who has brought into the
house tbe past winter thirty-six
gophers. I have ife from the owner
of tbe cat, so can bave no doubt
about it. The cat is well fed and
a great pet. He does not eat fehe
gophers he bringa in. How many
more he has caught that he has not
brought in they do nofe know. He
brings in mice also, and likes fehe
praise he gets for it, I suppose.
Though we are nofe more than 25
minutes' ride on the electric car
from the center of the cifey, gophers
are quite troublesome here, so I
think the cat deserves a medal.

lor Headache
A headache is frequently caused
by badly digested food; thegaao
and acids resulting therefrom are
absorbed by thc blood which in
turn irritates the nerves and
causes painful symptoms called
headache, neuralgia, rheumatism, etc. 15 to 30 drops of
Mother Selgel's Syrup will correct
faulty digestion and afford relief.

A Dead Game Sport
According to one of thc German

killed 1,995 pieces of wild game, including 70 stags, elk and roebuck. At
that time hc had slaughtered a total
of 61,730 pieces of game, more than
4,000 of which were stags, and was
the leading exterminator of wild life
in thc world. As a slaughterer of

Overseas Postal Rules
A necessary caution has been circulated amongst the -Canadians in
England about thc comparative insecurity of the overseas mails nowadays. In view of lhe frequent losses
of registered mail all ranks arc
warned that money shouldn't bc sent
by mail even if registered. When
postal orders are sent by mail, care
must bc taken to fill in the name of
thc payee in order that a postal note
cannot bc made payable to bearer.
It is important that this warning
should bc noted by thc correspondents in Canada of all ranks.
The    New-found    Wealth
Tired Wife
On a clear, cool evening in the
early spring a man ou a horse crossed the ridge of a Kentucky inoun-

family sal o\\ the pejreh. Several
children played iu the yard. Thc
stranger arrived al the gale and was
invited  iu  and   sal  down.

Well Over  $50,000,000   Worth
keted Last Year
Thai there was an increase of over
$12,000,000 in the market value of
Canadian fish during thc year 1917,
as compared with 1916, is shown by
a .summary of the fishing results in
the Dominion for thc past year, issued by the naval department. The
summary stales that thc market value of the products of Canadian fisheries for 1917 will be well over $50,-
000,000. The chief onlributors to
the large increase were lhe provinces
of British Columbia and Nova Scotia, the former with an increase of
$8,000,000 and the latter wilh an increase of $4,000,000. The, increase
in the value of the fish, although
partly due to increased prices, is not
altogether so, for, the statement
says, there has been a greater quantity of lish produced in most of thc
Ontario shows an increase of over
$200,000 for the year. This was
largely due to the increased catch of
lake herring, which was about 80,-
000 cwts. greater than last year. Thc
catch of whitcfish, trout, and blue
pickerel suffered a decrease. In Quebec thc cod catch was greater, but
that of calmon, mackerel and herring
declined somewhat. Thc higher
prices made the value greater than
during 1916. The Prairie Provinces
increased both the value and thc
output of fish.
The Third Act of the War Drama Is
Where the Villian Gets His
"The first act is ended," says Hindenburg.
The gentleman is in error. The
second act lias ended. In thc first
act, if we have not forgotten our
melodrama, the diabolical plot is conceived,'' the villian makes his plans
and vanishes, with every prospect
from the hero's standpoint seemingly full of promise. In thc second act
the villian puts his plans into execution; the curtain falls upon the hero
about lo perish beneath au onrush-
ing train, or to Le blown to pieces by
a bomb. Vice is triumphant and thc

A Suggestion Made in a Humorous
Skit a Century Ago  Is
Adopted Today
Now, when in order to profit by
thc sun's morning light, wc are commanded to advance our timepieces
one hour, the views of Franklin on
this subject, written more than a
century ago, might hc of interest.
They arc found in his well-known
"Economical Project," a humorous
but practical skit, suggested by his
observation during his French mission of the late hour of rising of his
Parisian friends. What is here quoted is taken from thc very recent
scholarly work of William Cabell
Bruce, entitled, "Benjamin Franklin
Sclf-Rcvcalcd," Volume II.:
" 'The.   Economical  Project,    is     a i

He Suffered From Cramps in the
Muscles and Headaches, But Now
He Is Well Again.
Lac Bouclicttc, Lac St. Jean Co.,
Que. (Special).���"I can assure you
Dodd's Kidney Pills made mc well."
So says M. Joseph Larouchc, well
known and highly respected here.
For two years hc was a sufferer from
cramps in the muscles and headaches, lie was treated by a doctor,
but got no permanent relief till he
used Dodd's  Kidney Pills.
"You may publish my statement
lhat Dodd's Kidney Pills made me
well," says Mr. Larouchc in an interview. "I was ill two years. I had
cramps in my muscles, and suffered
from terrible headaches. Two boxes
of Dodd's Kidney Pills cured mc."
That Mr. Larouchc's troubles came
from his kidneys is evidenced by the
fact that he found a cure in Dodd's
Kidney Pills. They are simply and
purely a kid-;/ remedy. Thc reason
they arc credited with cures of rheumatism, lumbago, dropsy, backache,
diabetes and heart disease is that all
of these were cither kidney diseases
or diseases caused by sick kidneys.

English Author   Ascribes   Chief
terest to Women
In England lhe public of the novel
is almost exclusively feminine. Pew
men read novels, and a great many
nothing at all, except thc newspaper.
Tlicy say that they are too busy,
which is absurd when one reflects
how busy is thc average woman. The
truth is that they are slack and ignorant.
They have sonic historic reason to
despise the novel, for it is quite true
that the nineteenth century, with a
t few exceptions, such as Thackeray,
Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Dickens, Scott,
George Eliot, thc llircc-volunic novel
was trash. It dealt generally with
some theoretical Polish hero, a highborn English maiden, cruel parents,
and Italian skies. Right up to 1885
that sort of thing used to arrive every morning in a truck at thc lending library, but if it still arrives in
truckloads, it should not be forgotten
that other novels arrive, too.
That is what the men do not know.
If they read at all you will find them
solemnly taking in "The Reminiscences of Mr. Justice X. Y. Z." or
"Shooting Gazelles in Bulbullaud,"
"Political Economics," or "Economic
Politics" (it means much the same
cither way up.) All that sort of
thing���that frozen, dricd-up, elderly
waggishncss, that shallow pomp, is
mentally murderous.
Sometimes men do read novels,
mostly detective stories, sporting or
very sentimental tales. When observed, they apologize and say something about resting the brain. That
mcans that they do not respect thc
books they read, which is base; it is
like keeping low company, where
one can yawn and put one's boots on
the sofa. Now no company is low
unless you think it is. As soon as
you realize lhat and stay, you yourself grow naturalized to it. Likewise, if you read a book without fellowship and respect for ils author,
you arc outraging it.
But mankind ' is stupid, and it
would not matter very much that a
few men should read novels in lhat
shamefaced and patronizing way if
they were not so open about it If
they do not apologize, they boast
that they never read a novel; they
imply superiority. Their femiuine
equivalent is the serious-minded girl

ing at his watch and finding that it
was but 6 o'clock, and still thinking
it something extraordinary that the
sun should rise so early, hc consulted
an almanac and ascertained that it
was just thc hour for sunrise on that
day, and, moreover, he learned from
the almanac that the sun would rise
still earlier every day till toward the
end of June! His readers, he was
sure, would be as .much, astonished
as he was when they beard that_ the
sun rises so early, and especially
when hc assured them that it gives
light as soon as it rises. Hc was
convinced of this. He was certain of

Not a Day To Be Lost
Time for Everybody to Drop Futite
Thc new measures lo bc applied in
Great Britain arc drastic in thc extreme, and Americans have only to
imagine thc drafting of men up to 5'J
years of age, and the total withdrawal from industry of men of 25 or under, to realize the burden which
Great Britain has assumed. To assume the new burden was necessary,
partly because Russia has dropped
out, partly because America has not
yet fully come in. It is time for
everybody in this country, politicians
included, to drop futile squabbles and
concentrate on winning the war.
Some can fight, some can build ships,
sonic can buy bonds. Neither in
fighting nor in industry,- nor in finance has this great and powerful
nation begun to extend itself. Its
strength will tell more heavily every
day, but there is not a day to bc
lost. Even stronger than Lloyd
George's appeal to America for haste
is his plain statement of the sacrifices which Great Britain must make
because \vc are not yet ready.���From

How the Kaiser Raises Money
Invitations to Court Functions Could
Be Bought by Anyone Who
Cared to Pay the Price
Some    piquant revelations    of  the
kaiser's    efforts   to raise money   for
himself    arc    given    by   Miss Edith
Keen, wdio spent seven years at the
j German court.
Miss Keen was engaged eight years
ago as a dresser to Princess Leopold
of Prussia; .''c German empress's
sister, and during her service she met
many great personages of the court,
including the All-Highest himself.
She only returned to England after
great difficulty. "You know too
much!" she was told.
In 1908, writes Miss Keen, the
kaiser was petting into financial difficulties. Many of the household accounts had not been paid for some
years. The kaiser had a heavy personal overdraft at his bankers.
"Ultimately, the kaiser relieved
himself of all his pecuniary embarrassments by thc sale of some of the
royal estates at Potsdam.
"It w;.s at this time that thc habit
sprang up at thc German court of
very wealthy people paying large
sums to obtain for their daughters
some sort of a position about thc
court, either as a maid-of-honor or
the    empress.   I

Sounds From the Earth
In one of liis journals, Uamille

whieh sounds from the earth are
heard from balloons. The shout
of a man was heard distinctly at a
height of 1G00 feet, the sharp note
of a mole cricket at 2500 feet, and
the croaking of frogs iu a morass
at 3000 feet. At 3255 feet a man's
j voice and the rolling of a cart
were distinguished; at 4550 feet
the roll of a drum and the music
of an orchestra; at 50^0 feet the
crowing of a cock, the sound of a
church hell, and sometimes the
shouting of men and women. Nine
hundred feet higher still he heard
the report of a musket and the
barking of a dog. The noise of a
railway train penetrated to a
height of S200 feet and the whistle
of a locomotive engine to nearly
10,000 feet.���Scientific   American.
To Keep Out Flies
A correspondent of the Scientific American is authority for the
statement that flies may be kept
out of restaurants, stables, etc., by
placing a fo'ir-bladed wooden ceiling pan just outside the door, or in
the entrance, driving the current
of air towards the floor. The flies
will not pass through the current
of air. The door may be always
left open and screen doors may be
dispensed with.
