From The Front
I am a man in the trenches. When the call came I went
out to fight the common enemy of Mankind. I sought no
other reason asked no profit. Tbe empires call was for men
and I went. I left you with a trust. I demanded of you that
you "carry on" whilst I was "Over There," that you watch
over and care for those near and dear lo me and loot the bill for
them and for me. For more than four years I have stood between you and destruction. I have been through hell and suffered the tortures of the damned. Have beeu succoured and
again gone forth to drive the enemy back. On foreign soil I
am greeted by one and all���poor and rich���as the saviour of
mankind. When I return to Canala I shall call upon you for
an accounting of your stewardship. I shall ask of you "how
have you kept your trust" and woe betide those who have failed me. Those who have beeu mere boasters whilst others and
I have paid the price. I am coming back from a land where
men poured out their wealth till told to stop���till there was
none to pour���but there the wealth was 'blood���not gold, My
account lies with a man named Foch, but yours is due to me,
and unless you can look at me straight in the face and say "I
fought with you" and show me your bonds, I shall deem you
have been the kaisers friend, and no quarter will be shown, I
will judge you not by your cheers, or the flags you waved when
peace came, but by the aid you gave by the bonds you bought.
There is yet time for you to make good, and I warn you that if
you have not, then waste no time in doing so, because I, the
man from the trenches, is in no mood for dallying with traitors
or idle talkers. Only���more���is to do your bit. If you meant
these cheers when you heard of peace buy your bonds today.

The Local Smelter
On account of having found
that the pay-grade ore in the
Mother Lode mine, is a little
greater in quntity than anticipated, the C. C. Co. is still able
to ship ore from the mine and
keep the smelter running. It is
not possible to estimate the exact
date when the smelter will have
secured all this ore, and will continue to operate, possibly for two
weeks more.
Next Monday, November 18,
L. W. Mayer, president, and
Allan H. Rogers, consulting
engineer of the C. C. Co. will
arrive in Greenwood from New

Useful War Souvenir
The war album issued by the

of Montreal is to hand and is a
credit to the Publishers. ;A copy
is sent free to all who order that
paper for 1919. The album contains a mine of valuable information and the color work could not
be improved on.
It is just, such a book as one
would like tp have close by at all
times. Every school child in
Canada should have it. In after
years when the war is over it will
be a valuable book of reference.
The Family herald costs only
$1.25 a year arid with the Album
is certainly big value.

for one more ad.

Liberty's Soldiers
Jcst a few days after tbe red
hand of Mars besmirched the fair
face of Belgium, Bob Loring came
to ue, and said, "Colonel, goodbye! I'm off to England to join the
army." He was a dead game
.-port and the first man to leave
Greenwood for the front. In a
Jew months he was folded into the
"rmatiou in France. We have
often wished since then that we
were a real colonel, in command
of a regiment of gun men like the
Princess Pats, for nothing would
cast a brighter glow around us
than the gleams from the trusty
bayonets of liberty's common
See the long roll of heroes from
this town and district whom death
mustered out, as the "Last Post"
sounded on the bloody fields of
Flanders. Welstead, Anderson,
McCutcheon, Rolland, Shaw.
Sparks. Cave, Keeson, Johnston,
Croly, McMillan, Swanson, Mc-
Dougall, Palmer, Brown, Christensen, Carrigan, Lindsay, and many
others. Then there were Sid
Oliver and his sons, Billy and
Jimmy. Sid and Billy went up
the flume in a forlorn hope while
bucking a nest of machine guns
early in ' 15, while little Jimmy
cashed in at Vimy Ridge, the battle of a thousand memories for Canadians. And these men died with
50,000 other sons of the Maple
Leaf in defence of liberty, justice
and democracy. Their's was a
glorious death, although so sad to
the mothers and others who mourn
for the brave men who went under,
going over the top, in order that
all the world might in future dwell
in love, peace, and harmony,
while the former mad monarch of
Europe, bereft pf his crown is an
Ishmael, sneaking through the back
alleys of Holland, unhung, but
hissed at by the civilized world.
We fain would wander through
Flanders fields and every other
e<:ot, once hot with  the fever 0'
x J ���
v i*r, and drop on each soldier of
freedom's grave a flower���the
sweet white lily of peace. Perhaps all in Greenwood have the
frame thought for the noble men
who gave their blood, in order that
' vre might live without clanking tbe
chains of slavery. But if you can-
jiofc wreathe in flowers tbe graves
or our glorious dead, you can still

X, Yon have; read;; of the heroes at
Maine, Xi Somme;/j Verdun;
and other crimson spots in chivalrous France, whose glory will
never die, bufe in a little hamlet of
California there is another sort of
hero. He is an old man in overalls, and lives in a little cabin. He
has a little garden and some hens.
He served four years in the Civil
War, and has a small pension.
When asked to buy a Liberty war
bond he said:
"I have already subscribed my
whole bank account, which wasn't
a great deal. I'm old and alone.
. I haven't enough left to bury me.
NECESSARY! Here's my last
five dollars. I'm taking it to the
bank as first dowu ou borrowing
for another bond."
That'B the right spirit, but the
people of Greenwood should nofe be
out done by an old Yaukee soldier.
Buy still one more Bond.
Booze is of little use in the present epidemic, except as a fear
killer. Anything that kills fear
will help to stamp out any pestilence.
For springing false war news on
the public laBt Thursday, the
United Press should be made to
surrender without  any conditions.
The wearing of gauze masks did
not stop the girls from chewing
gum. but it cut down cigarette
smoking and chewing tobacco.
We notice that few women over
35 years of age have died from the
Flu. One bright spot in the lives
of old maids.
Ideas of a Plain Man
Of all beautiful sights in thip
beautiful world, few are more
beautiful than Poppies among the
Wheat. Let the wheat be clean
and tall, straight as lines of rain,
crowded as serried soldierB, lush
wifeh pale green, and each stock
casqued with bearded grain, and let
the poppies be most poppy-red,
scattered like points of hidden fire
through the field; and hang over it
a summer sky with sharp-edged
tufts of cottony clouds, and a day
moon pale as they; and give just a
gentle wind so that the wheat shall
shrug its shoulders and eway a bit,
and the poppies nod like smiling
girls in flapping Leghorn hats of
red straw; and what more can
your beauty want? ���'���'.���
So in this sober wheat field of
experience give us some red poppy
flowers; not sin, bufe a. little caprice; not insanity, but a dash of inconsistency; not harmful folly, but
a trifle of' restful wilfulness. I
suppose all good tastes runs to
greys, and the end of culture is an
unbroken drab, but I like a dash
of red. I would not want to live
in a land pf red grass and scarlet
trees, but neither should I like to
live where never a wild blossom
stained the green breast of the
meadow with its wanton blood. A
sky all stars would be intolerable,
and so would be a sky with none.
There are star-people and poppy-
people, God bless them! And in
our own thick useful wheat-days
are some delicious, useless poppy-
hours.���Dr. Frank Crane.'.,

Victory Bonds provide a market for
British Columbia Mines and Smelters
Of Canada's total production in the calendar year 1917, of copper,
lead and zinc, amounting to $35,750,000, British Columbia produced
For the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1918, Canada sold on
credit to Great Britain and the Allies more than $46,000,000 worth
of metals, the greater part of which were produced from the.
mines of British Columbia. That was more than three times the
average exports for the three preceding years.
The Victory Loan 1917 made this
production possible because it enabled
Canada to give credit to Great Britain
and the allies for their metal purchases
in this country.
Without this market the mines and
smelters of British Columbia could not
have sold their outputs.
But the mines have had a market
for their ores. The smelters have
turned out tremendous quantities of
copper, lead and zinc.
This production has not only
brought prosperous times to the miners
but it has been a mighty factor in helping to win the war, for these metals
were absolutely necessary to the production of munitions in both Canada
and Europe.
The Victory Loan 1918 will keep
the good work going. British Columbia will continue to have a market
for her metals and other minerals and
these will help to win the war.
By buying Victory Bonds you enable Great Britain to secure needed
materials for munitions and you help
to maintain prosperity in British Columbia.

of the Dominion of Canada.
Lizards and Toads Wanted
Lizards and toads by the thousand are being sought and employed in the production of sugar cane
in the West Indian Islands. They
have proved to be the best means
for combating the froghoppers
which have long infested the cane
fields and greatly curtailed tbe
sugar crops.
A few years ago so great had become the damage to the cane by
the hoppers that entomologists and
mycologists were called upon to
study the situation and devise
methods to prevent the , destruction which had caused tbe loss of
thousands' of dollars annually to
the sugar growers^;,; A remedy was
quickly discovered. In /the/districts badly infested Mby the frog-
hbppers there was an almost total
absence of lizards, frogs and toads.
To; introduce theses creatures and
to encourage their increase was
obviously necessary to save the
sugar crops.    Lizards were obtain
ed from other parts and liberated
in the cane fields with the result
that the froghoppers have almost
entirely disappeared, the canes are
flourishing and the sugar yield has
largely increased in quantity and
improved in quality.
On the Island of Trinidad there
is today a veritable lizard farm
which has all the equipment for
successful breeding of these none
to numerous members of the reptile family which are now known
to be indespensible to the sugar
planters. In addition to this enterprise a wider search ia being
made for toads to help increase the
world's sugar output.

raised platform faces it at the op
posite end. It was on this platform that the famouB sign hung
which read: "Do not shoot the
piano player! He is doing the best
he can!'' A gallery extends around
three sides of the opera house and
the stage occupies the fourth.
On that stage the most famous
variety performers from San Fran-
cieco appeared. Lithographs announcing their coming still hang
on the walls. A dumb waiter connects the bar witb the gallery
above, where drinks were served
at tables placed in each of the little
rooms which open on to the big
dancing floor. Many killings have
occurred in the Bird Cage, and it
has been the scene of a number of.
Western stories of frontier life.
At the Can-Can restaurant
steaks once sold for $5 each, and
men waited in line to be served.
The Bed Light saloon waB. a gambling house, and the discarded
roulette and faro layouts may be
seen stacked in the rear of the big
building, with its broken bar and
mahogany fixtures. The stage
office is an adobe building, with a
corral flanking it, and it was there
that the stage from Tucson pulled
in each day, and the early settlers
received their mail from the outside world.

Dective "Billy" Burns returned
the other day from a tour through
the country in the interest of the
bankers' association. He was pro
foundly impressed with the merits
of western Pennsylvania as a place
of residence.
"Nothing like it for a man that's
inclined to be a bit low-spirited,"
said Mr. Burns. "They don't take
any chances with you there at all.
Why, if you go into a store and
ask for a bit of clothesline the
storekeeper will open a big book.

The Bed Cross iB the wounded
soldier's last defense. It is
greater than cannon, greater
than hate, greater than blood-
lust, greater than vengeance.
It triumphs over wrath as good
triumphs over evil. Direct

Christian faith, it carries on to
every battlefield the words of the
Man of Peace: 'Blessed are the

picture of war as I have seen it, as
it has touched me, has been the

flash of the emblem of mercy.
Hope then, was not dead. There
were hands to soothe and labor, as
well as hands to kill. There was
still brotherly love in the world.
There was a courage that was not
of hate. There was a patience that
was not a lying iu wait. There
was a flag that was not a lying in

Please make final effort to ensure complete success of Loan.
Steady the home front. Put over the Loan. If Peace came tonight
the Canadian Army would have to be fed and nourished for over a
year before returning home. Your money will do it. Ships must
still be built and armies fed. This means a market but not the money
for a cash market. Will you lend your money for this purpose. The
proceeds of the Loan will provide the cash, produce products and
stabilize industry. The last Loan made business good. This Loan
will keep it good. Business Prosperity and the Loan go together.
The Loan of 1917 was a guarantee against military defeat. It meant
reinforcements, ordinance, food, ammunition, hospitals, victory. The
Loan of 1918 is a guarantee against commercial depression. With one
we secure Victory, with the other we will ensure Prosperity. Our

A Pound of Honey
When you eat a spoonful of
honey, yoa have very little idea as
to the amount of work and travel
necessary to produce it. To make
a pound of clover honey, bees mast
take the nectar from sixty-two
thousand clover blossoms; and to
do this requires two million seven
hundred and fifty thousand visits
to the blossoms by the bees.
In other words, in order Io collect enough nectar to make one
pound of honey, a bee must go
from hive to flower and back again
two million seven hundred >nd
fifty thousand times. Then, you
think how far these bees sometimes
fly in search of these clover fields,
often two or three miles distant
from the hive, yoa will begin to
get a small idea of the number of
the number of miles one of the industrious little creatures mast
travel in order that you may have
a pound of honey.���^Presbyterian.

Can it Be True
We clip this strange story of
animal telepathy from an English
humane periodical:
The following is an authentic
story of the sagacity and faithfulness of a soldier's dog told to me
by his parents. The news was received by them that their son had
fallen in action; from that time his
dog moped, pined, refused his food,
and finally wasted away, veritably
dying of a broken heart. The
enrious part of this story is that
the dog's grief began, not on the
day news arrived of his master's
death, but two days before, at the
very time the young man was
In the Hurly-Burly
Actor���"Well, Hodge, how is
your daughter getting on in London?
Old Hodge���Thank 'e, sir. She's
all right so far���but with those air
raids on, she never knows wot
next minute she may be hurled
into maternity.���London opinion.
In Dauphan county, Pennsylvania, in a country burial piace,
there is yet to be seen a child's
grave. If you read the stone, you
will learn that the little grave waa
made more than eighty years ago.
But what you will not see nor may
not read is that among those who
mourned for the little girl that was
buried there so long ago was one
whose grief, was such that it led
her to come twelve miles across
the snow and through the bitter
cold to lay down her own little life
upon that grave.
Just a little house cat.
The dead girl was my father's
sister, and so many times when
some one would speak ill of a cat
or say, "The cat loves the home ���
not the individual," I have heard
say, ''No, you are wrong, they
love so well that they die of it."
Then he would tell of this cat,���
tell how his sister had cared for
her and how they had been always
together, and the last days, when
the end was near, the little girl
had asked them all to take care of
their pet when she was gone.
They had all .promised and meant
to be faithful. When they returned from the. funeral they
searched for the cat, but she was
nowhere about. Two weeks of
violent Btorm followed, at the end
of which a visit was made to the
graveyard. Here they found the
faithful little cat, half buried by
the snow, dead across the grave of
the child: My father iiked to add
to his story, "They are like strangers, the cats; we must get a better
acquaintance with them."
His Guess
"Is our client beautiful?"
"I guess you'd call her beautiful
as a point of law.    Still, she's no

Of course every city, town and district
will earn its Honor Flag.
But how about the crowns?
For every twenty-five per cent, in
excess of its quota, each city, town and
district will be entitled to add a crown to
its flag.
Can you do fifty per cent, better than
your quota���that means two crowns for

But double your quota and it means

This Way is Fame
His way was in a bloody lane
where clanking caissonB splashed
along; his goal, the line were blazing guns laughed out their song of
death. On, on he went. His ears
were filled with sounds of quick
commands, bugle blasts, discordant
drums. No fluttering fear was in
his heart, no thought of home, no
spectre of the dead despair that
waited at the hearth if he never
came again. To him there was no
warning in the bullet's deadly hiss.
Tooth trod all reason under foot;
ambition saw all glory pverhead.

True Sayings
If a man should be suddenly
changed to a woman, he couldn't
get his clothes off.
There are two sides to every
question; and men on both sides
are usually bigoted, unreasonable,
selfish and foolish.
You can get encouragement in
many: town where.you can't a dollar./
You no doubt think people are
greatly interested in knowing what
you think about matters in gen
eraljbut you are mistaken.
Every druggist says he knows
how to make something that ie
better than some article that have
made fortunes.
Everyone is crazy to attract at
ten tion.     Yon are; yon   needn't
deny it.
If you have willing friends, you
soon impose on them shamefully,
unless you watch yourself closely.
Women usually get the best of
it in court, which is probably all
right, since they usually get the
worst of it elsewhere.
In carrying a pistol, remember
it is no fan to kill a man.
Don't Stop
When someone stops advertising,
Someone stops buying. XXxX'X-
When someone stops buying,X
Someone stops selling.
���When someone stops selling,
ijomebite stops making,
When isomeone stops making,
Someone stops earning.
Everybody stops buying.

Of course be was a dreamer.
His faith in the future was the
faith of the seer and the poet.
Were he living today he would
still say what he said years ago.
Such soul see beyond the present.
No matter if it is nighfe. They believe in the day. They know thafe
after darkness, the light must
come.   This is what he Baid:
"A dey will come when the only
battle-field will be the market open
to commerce, aud the mind opening to new ideas. A day will come
when bullets and bomb-shells will
be replaced by votes, by the universal suffrage of nations by
arbitration of a sovereign senate,
which will be to Europe what the
Parliament is to England, the Diet
to Germany, the Legislative Assembly to France. A day will
come when a cannon-ball will be
exhibited in public museums just
as an instrument of torture is now,
and the people will be astonished
how such a thing could have been.
A day will come when these two
immense groups, the United States
of America and the United States
of Europe, shall be seen extending
fehe hand of fellowship across the
ocean, exchanging their products,
their industry, their arts, their
genius, clearing the earth, peopling

under the eye of fehe Creator, and
uniting for the good of all these
