Captain W. Garland Foster
died in France this month from
wounds. He escaped 30 for a

his composition.
Joe Duhamel and H. B. Larsen,
sometime ago started for Lightning Peak, by going along the
east fork ot the Main Kettle
river, but the route was too hard
and they had to return to Greenwood. They are now hitting the
drill in the Providence mine,
which is much easier than, blazing a trail through a dense forest in a rough country.
Many improvements have recently been made to buildings in
Greenwood.   W. H. Docksteader
has put a new roof on his residence, and installed a new water)
system.    Duncan Mcintosh has
put a new roof on his house,  and
made other improvements.    New
timbers have been put under the
Presbyterian church,   and   it   is
now on a solid foundation.    Sam
Bombini has erected new  buildings at    Anaconda,   and   many
other citizens will improve their
properties in the city and vicinity.
The   Flu   struck  Nelson and
Rossland  the week-end   with   a
mighty  wave,  and  those  towns
are closed tight.    Here in Greenwood everything is wide open and
nothing much done in the way of
turning the semaphore   against
the most   prevalent   disease   in
America.    We are justj}like those
virgins in  the early days   who
failed to fill thhir lamps in the
daylight.    Perhaps the Flu has
not struck us psychologically, or
else a reliance is placed upon the
effiacy  of the smelter  smoke to
kill anything from a flu-germ to
a pro-germ.    Since writing the
fore part  of this item the city
authorities have; wired to   Victoria for instructions re closing
of schools,  theatres etc.    There
is one case of the Spanish influenza in Greenwood.   Mr.  Mellrud   came in on   Tuesday   from

New War Measure
Make Your Sugar    Go    Farther.
| Sweetening  lr
On  top  of  the. news  oi short  sugar
rations comes the welcome aniiounee-
Imerit by thc food administration that
j sugar  can  bc   sweetened.    As?   a   war
measure it is possible to increase the
sweetness  of sugar    to  almost    onc-
i third  of its  normal  sweetening  power,  the  adiiiinistra:' >u  says.
j     The   discovery   has   been   made    by
\L J. Willanian, a member ot th.e Min-
jncsota     division    of    the    American
! Chemical   Company,  who has  achieved     the     seemingly    impossible,   aad
I who  has  made  it    possible   for    any

;     When cane sugar is subjected to ai
Verlain  chemical  change it  is  conecr-i
j ted into what is known as invert sug-
jar, which, weight for weight, is about
: 30 per (-ent. sweeter than cane  sugar;
; thus, 100 pounds of cane sugar makes
; a  little  more   than   105  pounds   of  in-
\ert  sugar,  which    has      the      same
.sweetening   power   as   135   pounds   of
cane   sugar.    The  economy  in   sweet-
cuing   is   readily    apparent,    although
the   invert   sugar   has   no   more     food
���value  than  the  cane sugar.
i      i he     making   of   invert   sugar   is   a

Haveloek Wilson, president of the

"Xo heart for anything'' is the cry
of thousands of men and women who
might bc made well by the new, red

Misery day and night is thc lot of
hosts of men and women who are today the victims of weak nerves.
Their pale, draw-n faces and dejected
attitude tell a sad tale, for nervous
weakness means being - tortured by
morbid thoughts and unaccountable
fits of depression. These sufferers arc
painfully sensitive and easily agitated
by some chance remark. Sleeplessness robs them of energy and
strength; their eyes are sunken, their
limbs tremble, appetite is poor and
memory often fails. This nervous
exhaustion is one of thc most serious evils affecting men and women
today. The only way to bring back-
sound, vigorous health is to feed the
starved nerves which are clamoring
for new, rich, red blood. This new,
good blood can be had through the
use of    Dr.     Williams'    Pink    Pills,

The petroleum industry of Mexico
has been the noteworthy feature of
her industrial development. Throughout the tcritory of the gulf coast
plains from Tamaulipas to Cora-
pechw there arc rich oil deposits,
most of which are particularly adapted for use as fuel. Iu 1912 the petroleum production of Mexico was
16,700,000 barrels and has shown a
steady increase since that time.
The Length of Wars
The Bigger and    More    Costly    the
War the Longer Its Duration
Four ycars ago many wiseacres
declared that because of its magnitude and the enormous expense involved, lhe war could not last more
than a year or two. Kitchener was
thought to be magnifying its possibilities when he began calculating
on three ycars of war. Already it
has lasted longer than any of the
wars of the last century, although
it is costing many times more than
all of them put together. The American Civil War, which began April
12, 1861, was over in less than four
years. The Crimean War, which was
opened in 1853, lasted two and a half
years. The Boer War Was considered a long one; but it lasted less than
three years. The Russo-Japanese
War began in_ February, 1994, and
was over late in 1905. Of these ,'sm.al-
lerrwars; the Amefican Civil; War

The special officers trained to carry out this intelligence work arc well
aware that the airman has unique
opportunities of learning the program
of operations in the army corps or
division to which he may bc attached. These "trappers" carefuly sift
out the useful items from the captured man's conversation. When these
passive methods fail, as invariably
they do, the prisoner may be browbeaten and ordered to disclose information under severe penalties.

No Bunting in Paris
Parades and Displays    Have    Disappeared from World's Gayest
A correspondent writing, from
France remarks upon the lack of parades and display of bunting: "This
great assemblage of soldiers was
strange in many Jways. During all my
stay in Paris 1 heard never a note
of martial music���no beat of drum
or note of bugle. Scarcely a flag in
the whole city, except, dingy drap-
eaux on official buildings. Never a
parades-only twice ; the muffled
beat of feet; hiarching to their own
rhythm; once of poilus "off for the
front, once of a company of Americans fresh  from the garc.
"And this thought brings nie to
the third vivid impression which
Paris gives���the apparent abstracteo
life and thought of lhc Parisians.
"In Ncw York, whence I sailed, I
had grown acustomed to miles of
waving flags ;ind banners, to frantic
protestations of patriotism on every
hand, to.bands and glaring posters
and headlines, to the public materialization of endless socks and sweaters
between the . Bronx and Bovyling
Green. I had, perhaps unconsciously, expected to find the same thing
leavened with French art: and enthusiasm. A day sufficed to reorient my thoughtlessness. France> is
no longer inspired' with the white-
hot spirit of exaltation, and enthusiasm which infused her during the
first part of the war; nor, on the
other hand, in 'this fourth year is
there manifest the slightest desire to
make-any but; a satisfactory end."

Poorer Sub. Torpedoes
Scarcity of Raw   Material    Compels
Germany to  Weaken Torpedoes
The Germans, in their extremity to
make their raw materials for munitions go as far as possible, have
stripped their torpedoes until tlicy
are bare as skeletons compared lo the
former  efficient mechanisms.
It seems that the idea of the Germans is to gain the highest possible
explosive power and to eliminate the
delicate and expensive propelling
��nd steering apparatus. This has
been done at the cost of accuracy
and range of fire, and at thc same,
time enhances the danger to thc U-
boats by forcing them much closer
to tlicir target than would be necessary if the old types of torpedoes
were used. But it has resulted in a
great saving of copper ancl brass,
and doubtless has facilitated quantity
Under normal conditions a torpedo
should be effective at 2,000 yards
or more,- biit the Germans now seldom fire from more than 500 yards,
and when tlicy believe they arc comparatively safe they approach much
nearer than that to their intended
victim. At close range the stripped
torpedo is practically as effective as
the more complete types, but the
fact remains that the Germans have
forced their submarine commanders
. to pay .in danger for what they have
saved by producing an inferior torpedo.
road prevented it from traveling fast-
ter than desired down the grades.
Several streams were crossed but no
unusual difficulty was experienced.
When thc block reached its destination itwas finished to size seven feet
square by ten feet before being placed on the railroad car. Its final resting place is the Terry Ranger Monument on tlie capitol grounds in Austin, Texas."
Trees  arc   girdled   for  the  purpose
of  killing   thcin.    It   has   often   been
i observed, however, that not all trees
jdie  immediately after  they are  gird-
j 1 ed,      but        sometimes    continue to
: live  for a  number of  years.    This  is
true  particularly with   young,   thrifty
trees having little or ho heartwood.
Large trees with thin sapwood will
die at once if the latter is completely
cut through the heartwood. This
can be readily explained on the basis
that the heartwood is to all intents
and purposes dead and takes no part
in the life of the tree except to support llie crown.
Tiie  sapwood,  on   the   other  hand,
is   tlie    life    of the    tree,   because  it
! serves as the    passageway    for     the
isap in its ascent lo the leaves. Therefore, as long as the sapwood is    not
��� completely    chopped    through to the
���heartwood,    the    upward flow of the
.sap  is    uninterrupted  and  the      tree
has a fair chance lo live for a longer
. !or shorter period after girdling.

French  Army Has   Solved   Problem
of Carrying Food
Trench warfare certainly interferes
with the fighters' meals. After capturing the enemy's position in particular, is the fighter at- a loss to
know how he will get his regular rations; for no sooner does the enemy
find himself dispossessed from his
original trenches than he opens up
with mi iniense barrage lire designed
lo prevent ammunition and food
reaching the new occupants.
The French army believes it has
solved the problem of carrying food
to men in isolated trenches, in its|.ulcj pr;cics hhnself upon a certain

Artificial Eyes of Rubber
Will Not Irritate    Socket    and    are
Glass eyes are notoriously uncomfortable, and often unsightly. "" Two
French workers aimed at producing
a substance of sufficient elasticity
and softness to respond to the
changes in thc eye socket and at the
same time of sufficient hardness to
present a smooth, natural effect between the eyelids. Thcy solved the
difficulty of consistence by making
the front of the new eye of hard caoutchouc, vulcanized and enamelled
to represent the natural appearance,
and the back of the eye of soft caoutchouc, hollowed out in the form
of a ball filled with air. These hollow eyes, have been found to answer
the purpose very well. They are
soft and elastic; they respond in a
remarkable manner to the ocular
movements; they do not irritate the
socket; and thcy have the great additional advantage of being unbreakable.
Great Responsibility Rests on Traffic
Man '
A  marvel  of  the  war      road '   in
France  is   the  despatch  rider,     who
manipulates  his  machine  in  and-out
of this  mass with  wonderful dexterity,  some   times   extricating    himself
I from apparently impossible positions,
, always  risking life    and    limb���villi
j amazing "sang-froid."
Mounted patrols���both    horse   and
I cycle���are  constantly ou    the    alert,
| slowing and accelerating the columns
to meet the demands of by-road traf-
I fie.
I    At  each    cross-roads    stands    tlie
traffic man. Upon this individual rest
great responsibilities.    It is  he   who
with a peremptory movement of the
arm, momentarily    holds    up  everything     when     giving precedence   to
i transport proceeding "linewards."    it
j is lie  who briefly answers  the  thousand and one questions regarding thc
positions    of units, villagers,    etc., in
his locality.
Occasionaly it happens that a vehicle breaks  down.      Immediately     a
score or so of willing "Tommies" are
' requisitioned  who    speedily    remove
the  obstacle  from the  road.
The word "Block" is a dreaded one
with all concerned in this important
artery of the war. Every possible
precaution is taken to ensure a free
running of all traffic.
Thanks to a perfect system combined with the fixed determination
of all users of the road "to get
there and get there quickly," these
blocks are few and far between.

Remarkable Operation Successful
An operation reported to have been
performed under the direction    of a
surgeon  1,800 miles away,    saved    a
man's life in Australia recently.   The
patient fell from his horse at   Hall's
Creek, in northern Australia, and suffered serious injuries.     An operation
was urgently  necessary,    and    there
was no doctor within 1,000 miles. The
condition of the patient was described by telegraph to a doctor in Perth,
and he sent back, by thc same means,
instructions under  which  the     post-
l master at Hall's Creek with such sur-
J gical instruments as he could muster,
; the chief of which was a razor, successfully carried out thc operation.

"Rule Britannia"
In German Prison
Hon. Dr. Beland Tells How    Scotsman Celebrated New Year's
On returning home from his prison
home in Germany, Hon. Dr. Belaud
told one prison incident. ' On New-
Year's eve, in 1916, he was making
his rounds as jail surgeon ancl came
to the cell of a stalwart Scottish veteran,, who always spoke with "the
accent of the heather." As he turned
aw'ay the Scot���his name was Kirk-
patrick��� whispered to him: "It's possible I'll bc celebrating thc New Year
a wee bit when it comes in." Dr.
Beland pleaded for particulars, for he
thought the Scot planned an escape,
whicli he feared might result fatally,
as the guard was especially vigilant.
But he could secure no information
from the taciturn man of mystery. Hc
was wakeful and anxious, for he was
fond of his fellow prisoner.
The midnight hour had jusl toiled,
however, when, from the Scot's cell,
in a clear, resonant baritone, with
au unmistakable accent, there rolled
the words of "Rule, Britannia," sung-
with the full vigor of a strong voice
���and sung through to the end. "The
whole prison was alive in a moment,"
said Dr. Beland. "The prisoners
crowded to the windows, clapping
their hands, cheering, and joining in
the chorus. So led by lhe gailant
Scot, there was heartily sung in the
centre of Berlin that New Ycar
morning the rousing declaration that
Britain rules thc waves and tha:
Britons never will bc slaves. The
Germans set an investigation on foot,
but so far as we heard, nothing Jj-
finite came of it."

Axn now Dr. Pint of Chicago
butts in and says thafe the present
p;>idemic of Flu is not the influenza. He says that three germs,
with names loiig enough to choke
you are responsible tor the plague.
They are the germs that usually
cause-carbuncle?, blood poisoning
and sore mouths.. They are a
'tough trio and muso have come
from Germany. He saya fehat the
epidemic is mainly caused by the
present war diet, especially by the
lack of the usual amount of sugar.
He also says that the regulation

the disease. *

use of worrying and howling "Calamity" all around town just because Tom, Dick and Harry have
taken it into their heads to

sense in such actions? Blamed if

more houses than people to inhabit
them. No family needs two homes

that way.
What's fehe use of worrying?
You can't travel at lightning speed

is a good thing if you are compelled
to slow up and rest from your

you will then be able to grab hold

An acute and sudden onset with headache, intense Just behind the eyes, pain
in the small of the back and sometimes
in the regiou of lhe stomach, elevation

degrees, with a comparatively slow pulse
rate. The face is flushed, the tongue

Put Sulphur in Your Shoes
.Editor Ledge:���Some years ago, when
la grippe was prevalent; I heard that
sulphur placed in the shoes would prove
a prophylactic agaiiist taking the disease,
and after hearing this, whenever a, ctse
of.grippe occurred in the house I placed
sulphur in everybody's shoes in the family. The result was very satisfactory.
The trouble stopped with the one case,
whereas previously it went through the
family like wild-fire. . I would therefore
recommend everyone fo put a little sulphur in each of their shoes. The system
will take it up and with'.no'.unpleasant
effects,.and :it may ; prevent an attack of
tlie'"flu.^.^-;-v..       XyxXlXy. ii'iXx.

Frank Spangler, of Spokane, submits
the following formula wnich he says is a
certain cure for pneumonia:
Take six or ten onions according to
size. Chop fine, put in a large spider
over a hot fire. Add the same quantity
of rye meal and cider vinegar, enough to
make a thick paste. Stir well constantly
and simmer five or ten minutes. Then
put in a cotton bag, large enough to
cover the lungs and apply to the chest as
hot as the patient can bear. When cool
apply another and thus continue by reheating the poultice, Within a few
hours the patient will be out of danger.
Three or five applications are usually
sufficient. Always continue, however,
until the prespiration starts freely from
the chest. This receipt never fails when
applied in time, and cures when physicians fail, he says.
Ballade of Riches
What care I for the treasure isles
Enskyed where purple oceans are?
I have the sunlight's golden smiles;
I have the silvery gteam of star;
Daily beside the pasture bar
The daisies flash me radiance free���
Poets are rich, or near or far,
For wealth abides with poverty!
Roses have I for daily bread:
Why should I crave a richer fare?
Who eats of beauty, he is fed;
Who drinksa draught of sweetpure air,
He has wine of a vintage rare.
Yea, naught have I but youth and glee,
Yet always I have joy to spare���   .
For wealth abides with poverty!
Science shines like moon on the mind;
The soul is thrall to starry art;
I covet not their cold unkind
Splendor of death in whole or part,
I have love in a true, pure heart,.
And nevermore on land or see
Can summer from my life depart���
For wealth abides with poverty!
