M. F. Madden of Chicago is tbe

Work w_is commenced several

lessees sunk this shaft 15 feet, from
where fehey drifted on a vein in a
southerly direction, and up feo the
first of the week were in 25 feet.
The vein is 10 inches wide, and is
of high grade ore, carrying silver,
gold, lead, zinc and copper. The
latter mineral is expected to run
close to three per cent. Native
silver and gold can easily be seen
in the kad. On an estimate this
ore may average $200 to  the ton.
A shipment will be made this

Chewing Tobacco is becoming more
'������'���tiuil moire-popular is, because ii docs
not attract attention ill the month.
It is not chewed; on the Contrary, a

Tbis gives complete satisfaction
.without chewing, and leaves a pleasant,
cool after-taste.
Copenhagen Chewing Tobacco is

It is iu the form of small grains, and

Notwithstanding   German   Militarism
Has Long Been a Menace
to Dutch Independence
A very clear and convincing sUtc-
lucii of the conditions under which
tbe Dutch have fed Germany is sent
to the New York Times by .Sir. John
C. Van der Veer, the London editor
of the Amsterdam Tclegraf. The figures show how certain traders have
derived immense profits from sending supplies to Germany even though
pa it of these were badly needed at
home. The trade with Genna-iy for
the years 1915 and 1916 was sonic
ten limes greater than the trade with
England, though England has always
been one of Holland's best customers. Mr. Van der Veer says that the
majority of Dutchmen do not favor
this policy, not only because it menaces commercial relations wilh Great
Britain, but also because German
militarism has long been a menace to

Germany on Holland havc long been

Germany to do so. If Dutch sympathy with the allies is as general

that it has not found more adequate

"Keep On"
A Life and Death  Struggle for All
That Freedom Stands For
The prime minister tells the facts
plainly, as Englishmen and Englishwomen have ever loved to have them
told. He makes no attempt to underrate the deadly nature of the conflict to which we stand committed.
!t is a lifc-and-dcath struggle for all
that the free peoples hold precious
and sacred, and that struggle is waged against a mighty foe. The prime
minister docs not pretend that victory 's at hand. Wc shall win, but.
to win at all, wc must spend without
stint our whole united strength. His
confidence in the issue is assured,
but npon condition that all ranks
and all classes remain as true lo
their common cause as they have
proved themselves through these
three tremendous years. All we
have to do is to "Keep on, keep on."
We arc fighting for the greatest
cause for which men ever fought, for
the prize of victory is the freedom
of mankind, and the penalty of defeat or of compromise is their permanent subjugation to the yoke of
"militarism." 'Beside a_ contest to
which consequences so immeasurable
are attached all lesser things sink
into insignificance. The people feel
that the old play is played out, and
lliat, after the convulsion beneath
which the world is rocking, new
problems will arise which we shall
face in the new spirit begotten of
these days of "searching trial. Before wc squabble about the" division
of the.loaf, we have first to keep it
from, the enemy wlio is snatching at
it. The first lesson of the war is
unity���unity among ourselves, and
unity with onr allies.���From the

con.m__.sion of the council of national defence.
"Canada is now handing the torch
to the United States," said Dr. Taylor, after describing his experiences
on the European battlcfronts. "The
present conflict is no ordinary war,
but a crusade, and tlie United States
must give all it lias, for we are almost spent."
The speaker deplored the frightful
losses    among college men, who,  he1
said, "were sent from Canada merely
to stop a gap ajnl die obscured, with
their technical training of  no avail."
"But they served their purpose,"

The new regulations in the United

from one writer in the Manchester
Guardian a delightful reminiscence,
handed. down by a relative, of how
the match first came to an English
village, nearly a hundred years ago.
Hc tells of how the village parson,
desiring to keep in touch with the
great world went up to London every year by coach. As the result of
one trip he brought back a box of
matches. "One, and one only, was
struck on the evening of his return
to show his own household the wonder." Next day invitations were dis
patched to the elite of the parish "to
drink tea" at the parsonage on a

Intensive Farming
Farmers Must Try to Produce More
On Every Acre
What is required of the fanners is
more intensive farming. Jiacli acre
should produce more this year than
it has ever produced before; each cow
should protlucc more milk than ever
before. No. farmer should kill a call
until it is at least a mouth old, so
that it will bc valuable for 'food and
its skin valuable for leather; moreover, more heifer calves should bc
raised so as to increase the dairies
and provide for an increase in milk.
The cattle have been killed in nearly
all countries at war to an'alarming
extent, hence there will be a great j
scarcity of milk products and beef
for some years.

The Enemy's Aim
What Germany Means by "Freedom
of the.Seas"
Real light upon what German
minds incati by "the freedom of the
seas" comes from an article which
Count von Rcvcntlow published
last March, but which the German
censorship prevented getting out of
Germany until recently. A translation which appears in an English
oapcr gives  this:
"Oi course wc do not mean by the
phrase that free use of the sea .which
is the common privilege of all the
nations in times of peace, the right
lo the open highways in international
trade.: That sort of. freedom of the
sea wc had before the war. What wc
ui;dcrstand today by this doctrine is
that Germany should possess .. such
maritime territories and such riaval
bases that at ihe outbreak of the war
wc should be able, with our navy
icruly, reasonably to.guarantee ourselves ; the' command, 'pf.. tIic sea. ��� VVp,

By Lou  D.  Sweet,  Head of Potato
Division, U. S. Food
It is of great importance that all
the potatoes raised this year should
be stored under proper conditions.
I.vcn when every precaution is taken
the wastage of potatoes during the
winter is considerable; under bad
conditions of storage it is very great
In order that the best methods
may be adopted by the small growers those _ who have not had the experience in the storage of potatoes,
should know the chief causes of the
wastage.    These causes are:
Cl) Sweating, heating and consequent rot: often due to insufficient
(2) Rotting: <lite to potatoes get-,
ting wet at the time of putting them
in storage;
(3) Injury from, frost;
(4) Decay: owing to disease in the
tubers at  the  time of storage:
(5) Sprouting of tubers in the
It is not possible to prevent altogether losses iro-n these causes, but
by using the best methods of storage, it is possible to reduce them
very materially.
This may be done by taking care
to guard against losses from each of
these  causes:
(1) Sweating and heating occur if
the freshly dug potatoes arc piled in
loo large piles, so that the air cannot circulate between the tubers. The
riskof loss from this, cause is greatest in the fall, immediately after the
tubers havc been dug, and it is.
therefore, important that* potatoes
when dug- -should not be. put. in unnecessarily larjre piles, nor kept, in
alb ill-ventilated room.
(2) Rotting fro.n. geiting the pota-
���tocswet. If tlie potatoes at the
��� digging time arc allowed to get wet
and to go into storage in that condition, rotting is sure to occur. Bs
careful lo have your potatoes dry
before storing,
(3) Injury Front frost. Potatoes
arc easily damajred by frost.. If they
become frozen, tlicir market value is
j destroyed. Therefore,.; take every
precaution to protect the tubers
from frost before  __nd  after digging.
(4) Disease. TJicre are several
diseases of the potato which destroy
I the tuber, and Lf diseased tubers arc
mixed with the soil nd ones, the disease spreads rapidly; therefore, it is
necessary to sort llic potatoes, carefully, eliminating all of the disease,
the cuts, culls, and dirt before placing them into _> cnmaiient storage for
the winter. All of the cuts, culls,
misshapen and diseased tubers should
bc fed to the poultry and live stock,
but should be steamed or boiled before being- fed, as in this way, you
increase the food value, and also destroy the.'germs' o�� the disease, so
lli at it will not get irito the manure
and thence into tlie land.

The Feeding- and
Housing: of Smne
Valuable JPamphlet   Issued   by    the
Department o�� Agriculture
On account of the high value of
concentrated foods suitable for
swine feeding, it is important that
the foods that are used bc so combined as to produce the maximum of
results. The question of housing also enters largely into the profitable
production of pork. To encourage
fanners to raise as many hogs as
possible, and to make the most money therefrom, the department of agriculture at Ottawa, has issued Pamphlet No. 22 on the "Feeding and
Housing of Swine." This pamphlet
which may be obtained free at the
Publications Branch, Department of
Agriculture, Ottawa, deals also with
the questions of breeding ancl care
of the animals at different ages and
at different seasons of the year.
This pamphlet is prepared by Professor G. E. Day, iu charge of the
bacon production campaign, Domm-
io'ii department of agriculture, Mr.
E. S. Archibald, Dominion animal
husbandman and his assistant. Mr.
G. B. Rothwcll.
Mr. Archibald, after much experimental work, lays down the principal that an expensive piggery is unnecessary. Brood sows may bc kept
under most circumstances, even in
the winter season in a  single board
next day, was all agog at the news,
and, in order to satisfy the curiosity
of the parishioners, a series of parlies had to be given so that nobody
"with the least social pretentions"
should be left out.

Cincinnati man tells how. to dry
up a corn or eallus so it
lifts off with fingers.
Vou corn-pestered men and women
need suffer no longer. Wear the shoes
that nearly killed you before, says
this Cincinnati authority, because a
few drops of ireczohc applied directly
on a tender, aching corn or callus,
stojs soreness at once and soon the,
corn or hardened callus loosens so it
can be lifted oil, root and all, without pain.
A small bottle o�� frcezone costs
very little at any drug store, but will
positively take off every hard or soft
coin or callus, This should be tried,
as it is inexpensive and is said not to
irritate the surrounding  skin.
If your druggist hasn't any frcezone
tell-liim to get a small bottle for you
from his wholesale drug house, it is
fine stuff and acts like a charm every
no delusion as to the condition of its
foe; it knows that the submarine
blockade has not prevented the arrival of British ammunition.
Wc are seeing the slow but sure
decay of one of the great military
machines of human history, but the
world has not" yet fully realized its
present condition, just as the Napoleonic legend long took in a Europe accustomed to Napoleonic victories won l>y the veterans of the
revolution, even when Napoleon was
facing veteran troops with ill- trained youths, after his great lieutenants
and best soldiers had perished in the
victories between Marengo and Moscow. When ill ere was next to nothing left of the army of Northern Virginia but ils magnificent reputation,
it still seemed invincible to the doubters in the north.
The greatest single service .ot the
British at Ypres is the demonstration
they arc giving the world of the decline of German morale and German
might. We are still under the shadow of our old fears and of our apprehensions., which were just three
years ago, two years ago, but
now they are childish. At its best
the German army failed at the Marne
and at Verdun; while it was still
strong it lost at the Somme. This
year it has lost every considerable
engagement in the west and has been
unable to attempt any major operation  in  the east.
Third Ypres in its largest meaning
is_ a demonstration of the rapid decline ol German military strength; ft
is the clear proof that Germany has
lost the war; it is the reasonable assurance that lli e next campaign will
bring triumphs not to be measured
by yards or by rods. It is one of the
decisive battles of the war, just as
the series of struggles between the
: Rapidan and the James in 1864 were
the sure foreniliners of Confederate
collapse. This is what Third "Wipers"   means.    Only   the  purposefully

_ Few people realize that nervous
ailments often arise from digestive
(roubles. The stomach fails, for
some reason, to digest food properly. Then the system languishes and
the nerves become exhausted in
striving to continue thcir^ work. Impure blood also causes nerve troubles, but frequently it is in the stomach where the mischief starts. As
the nourishment is carried to the
nerves by the blood, it will be seen
what an important connection exists
between the stomach, the nerves and
the blood, and how such troubles as
nervous headaches, nervous dyspepsia itpd insomnia may begin.
Iir such cases relief is easily obtainable by means of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. These pills replenish the
blood with the food elements on
which the nerves thrive; at the same
time they exercise a tonic influence
on the digestive organs, enabling the
system to derive nourishment from
the food taken. By this perfectly
natural process nervous ills arc steadily dispelled by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. If you are suffering from
nerves, or require a blood-making
tonic, give these pills a fair trial, and
see how speedily the best of health
will bc yours. '
You can get these pills through
any dealer  iu   medicine,   or  by   mail

In the getting out of the first number of a new English magazine in

through an interpreter how such an

proofreader said: "I can imagine a
mistake of 20.000 or . 30,000 being
made, but how could hc get 39,000

the British navy has destroyed twice
as many German submarines as during the 'whole of 1916. Mr, Lloyd
George is authority for the state;
ment. The number destroyed in 1QI6
is not known, but it is believed to
be approximately 75 under-water vessels.". Assuming: this to be correct,
Germany has already lost this year"
no fewer than 150 U-boats or at-tha
rate of about four a week. If this
bc so it is no wonder that the loss
of steamers through the activities of
Hun pirates has beet: so greatly reduced. At present the loss per week
in tonnage is less than one-third of
what it was in April last, when tha

A Dog of the.Trenches
The Animals' Friend, an Eng'
lisb. publication, is authority for
fehe following story, which shows
fehe better side of the banian heart
in war.
In a part of the line where the
enemies trenches were only eome
fchirfey yards away fehere had been
some sharp fighting, aud one of
our men left badly woanded midway between the lines, moaning
pitifully. To attempt to rescue
him would have been almost certain death. The officer, taxing hiB
brains for a plan of rescue, caught
nighfe of a certain dog who was
accustomed to run to and fro between the British and German
trenches, finding friends in each.
He quickly wrote a note: ' '"Will
you allow us to bring out man in?"
tied it around the dog's neck, and
sent him across to the German
line. In a few minutes the animal
refeuriAed with the.reply: "Will
give you five minutes." Instantly the officer and a couple of. his
men took a stretcher and were over
fede top. They gofe their man into
safety in four minutes, and gave
the enemy a cheer, . by way of
thanks, before both sides returned
to business.
He Might Not Insist
"He has asked me to marry
"What answer shall I give
"Say yes. I believe in answering a fool according feo his folly,"���

"Over The Top"
Naturc has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful* The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fishg include
ing clams, Its lofty skyvscraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth'gold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek* Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP," for lack of
cultivation, Its forests of gigantic trees are the *
envy of the world* The scenery is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy*
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and yet it has a scant 400,000* Then
sings the little bird in the tree, " What's The
Matter With B, G"
Nothing, except that it is like many a
businessman. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B. C, the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada-s provincial diamonds. Get amove
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the millions
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up* If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
and get your job printing atUhe same office.
