The Smelter Situation
Editor Ledge.
Dear Sir:
In response to your
request for a statement from me in
order that you may have something authoritative, I wish to eay
that due to the fact that the
Mother Lode mine contains now
ore of a grade insufficient to meet
present-day costs, and because the
quality of coke which ib. obtainable
is so inferior, and because freight,
wages and supplies are all so costly
under war conditions that to develop our Phoenix mines is inadvisable at this time, we are going
to discontinue smelting operations
at Greenwood and cease mining at
the Mother Lode.
For just what period of time this
shut-down will continue is impossible to fortell. It will require a
return to a more nearly normal
supply of labor and of costs than
prevails today to encourage us to
expend rnouey necessary to lay the
foundation for an operation in this
district. We have much faith in
our Phoenix mines and in the
Lone Star, and there are encouraging prospects at two other of our
properties. It is my personal belie! that we will eventually reopen
our Boundary operations, but their
is nothing of assurance which I
can give. For thi3 latter I am
very sorry as I know how hard it
will hit property owners and merchants .whose business depends, at
least to a large extent, upon the
activity of the smelter.
Very truly youre,
Hugh R. Van Wagbnen,
General Manager.

Good     Mohammedans
When They Die
Near to the resting place of the
first great apostles of their faith it
is thc dearest wish of all pious Mohammedans to lie  after death.
The shrines of Najaf, Kcrbcla, and
Kazimain, the resting places of Aii,
Hussein, and the seventh and ninth
Imams, lie on the edge of the desert
in the country British troops now
occupy in  .Mesopotamia.
One often meets a corpse on the
road packed in a long crate or bun-
Idle of palm leaves and slung across
the back of an ass, says Kdmund
Chandler, the press representative in
the Mesopotamian forces. The pilgrim
behind is taking his relative to swell
the population of thc cities of thc
dead, by which these sanctuaries arc
Of the three shrines, Najaf is the
richest, and to sonic minds the most
sacred. Like Kazimain, it is approached by a horse tram. Thc
trams arc not of the pattern of those
that ply over Blackfriars Bridge. I
believe thc few British soldiers who
have seen them rank them with thc
Clock Tower in thc mosque as first
among thc lions of Mesopotamia.
In peace time thc dead come from
a wide radius. Thc donkey with thc
bundle like a big carpet bag on its
back, drapen in wattle or rich silk
according to the means of thc pilgrim, may have come all thc way
from Bokhara. A few years ago a
corpse arrived from the Persian am-
bassy at I'aris.
The rich as a rule arc buried in
the shrine itself. Thc fee for interment in the "mosque is $250. For
burial outside the walls of the city
J the pilgrim pays anything from four
to ten rupees (two to five dollars),
according to the distance he "has
Many pilgrims buy houses in Najaf, ancl thus the place is gradually
becoming a city of thc dead. Nine
houses out of ten have graves in
them. Sometimes the building is
nothing else than a tomb.
Najaf has proved impregnable to
Wahhabi and Bedouin. It is believed
to be fabuously rich. There are two

i Our American allies are perfecting
Un adequate first-aid system vihereby
many valuable lives may be saved in
connection with aviation.
This system will probably be
adopted by our own air forces, for
use both at home and abroad, and
we may shortly expect to hear of
good work of this description being
done at the front. Special airplanes
arc kept constantly in readiness,
equipped with a compact "first aid"
outfit, and a doctor occupies the observer's scat. A skilled pilot waits
beside the machine, ready to ascend
with his medical "pascsngcr" without  a moment's delay.
The "flying aid-post" is ready for
any emergency. The pilot and thc
physician arc. stationed close to the
machine which is ready for instant
flight, thc engine being tested every
half-hour or so in order to obviate
delay through starting troubles.
Look-out men are posted at various
positions whose duty it is to keep a
watchful eye on any planes whicli
may bc operating in their vicinity.
At thc slightest sign of a machine
falling, or descending in trouble, they
immediately telegraph their information to headquarters, stating whereabouts the machine may be expected
to land. On receipt of this information thc "aerial hospital" sets out at
once for thc scene of the accident,
ready to offer medical assistance, if
such assistance should be required.
A fire engine and an ambulance
wagon follow by road, with.thc result that thc unfortunate flying-man
receives every form of assistance in
an-incredible short space of time,
after his accident.
The importance of this "quick
help" system canot bc over-estimated. First aid on the spot will
doubtless be the mcans of saving thc
lives  of many airmen.

They are a Constant Torment to the
A brigade runner came along thc
communication trench to battalion
headquarters and handed thc adjutant
a despatch marked "Urgent." The adjutant opened it, burst out laughing,
and passed it on to the medical officer.   It read like a Bairnsfather joke:
O.C.���Bn. You will render a Return of Rats in your sector immediately. ������Bde.
There* was meaning in it, however,
for at that time���some two ycars ago
���it was thought that the Germans
were inoculating the trench rats in
order to spread disease in our lines.
Whether this was so we never really ascertained; but at any rate,
thanks to modern medical science,
there has been little or no disease
spread among our troops by thc tens
of thousands of rats that havc dug
themselves in among the billets and
trenches in France and Flanders.
Rats thrive well and multiply rapidly in thc trenches. Alas, they never
go seance of food! One thinks with
a shudder of their loathsome feasts
and impish gambols among thc tin-
buried dead of No Man's Land.
A constant torment to thc soldiers,
Ihey steal his rations, disturb his
rest, ruin his harness and spitefully
bite him when he offers resistance.
Unless properly attended to a rat
bite often results in a nasty septic,
wound. Their favorite tit-bits is thc
lobe of the car.
In billets also thcy arc ever present, though it is some satisfaction to
know that here thcy are on a different diet. If you waken in the night
on your bed of damp straw in some
old barn or ruin, their beady eyes
peer out of the darkness as though
in gleeful anticipation of a feast.
Thcy may have nibbled holes in
your socks by morning, or lined tlicir
nests with leaves from your pay-
book, or carried off your false teeth
if you were foolish enough to take
them out before falling asleep. They
are bold and audacious. They havc
! even been known to knock down a
lighted candle and carry it off, leaving thc surprised "poker" party in indignant amazement.
An active warfare is continually
being waged against these pests. Ferrets, terriers, poison, and traps, all
take their dailjr toll; but there is" nothing so effective as a gas attack.
After . the trenches have been
drenched with gas they arc generally
clear of rats for some time to come.
Sometimes the soldier gets an opportunity for a very_ satisfying" revenge. Ho leans with his back against
thc parapet and steadfastly watches
a rat hole in front of him. In course
of time a sniffling, be-whiskercd nose
appears. Hc lunges forward, catches
it on thc point of thc bayonet, and,
thinking of all the torments rats havc
caused him, gives him
pull at the trigger.

A Ghost City
Tombstone, Ariz.���The Birdcage opera house, the Can-Can
restaurant, the Bed Light saloon
and the Tucson stage office remain
as relics of Tombstone's one time
glory as a mining camp. Theee
old buildings were once the scenes
of the pioneer Arizona mining
camp, bnt are now occupied by
bats and are slowly falling into
The Bird-cage opera bouse was
the most famous in the territory.
It is a rambling, two-story structure, with the glass iu the rough
board front broken by the elements.
A long bar occupies one end of the
building, while the piano player's
raised platform faces it at the op
posite end. It was on this plat
form that the famous 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 bouse and
the stage occnpies the fourth.
On that stage she most famous
variety performers from San Francisco appeared. Lithographs announcing their coming still hang
on the walls. A dumb waiter connects the bar with 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 ki llings 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 was a gambling honse, 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.
Another relic of old Tombstone
is the monument erected to Ed
Schefflein, the founder of Tombstone and the man who gave it its
name. The monument is built of
boulders from Scheffiein'a first
A cowboy from the Panhandle
told Schefflein that he would not
find gold but a. tombstone in the
Hanchuca mountains. Schefflein
found gold and named the town
Tombstone, remembering his
friend's prediction. When he died
his body was returned here and
the tombstone erected at the spot
where he made the gold strike
that caused a great rush to this
The Animal That
Eats His Bedroom
The muskrat lives in the brown
bogj hiding carefully in the daytime and coming out at night to
seek food or to build his little
house. In winter his house is
cozy, for he builds it with a passage that enters beneath the ice of
the pond on the border of which
he lives. The bitter wind, therefore, cannot reach him. If he is
hungry he can swim nnder the ice
and find pond-lily roote and other
sweet food. Maybe:V he: does not
; need; even ;to wet his for; for he
builds his house of these very roots
and of rushes and grasses, so all
heneeds to.do��� when hungTy is to
turn oyer "and eat his bedroom
MuBkrata are sociable creatures.
When they live together, one will
warn another of approaching
danger. They attract attention by
flapping the water with their tails
as they dive out of sight.
Alligators like muskrat flesh and
eat it when they can get it. The
little animal has other enemies,
the worst of them, perhaps, being
the mink; for the mink can follow
tha muskrat into its home. Worst
of all for all muskrats, however,
is a severe winter following a dry
fall, because then the ponds freeze
solid, and the little fellows are
either forced out to become the
victim of enemies, or are shut out
by the ice and die of starvation.

The Wounded Soldier's
Last Defense
The Bed Cross is 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
descendant of the Cross of the
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

faith that the terrible scenes at the

flash of the emblem of mercy.
Hope then, was not dead. There
were hands to soothe and labor, as

As an instance of how science and industry have co-operated in helping to win
the war, it is interesting to note that Sir Thomas White, K.C.M.G., Minister of
Finance, has made a special " His Master's Voice " Record for the purpose of
actually informing the Canadian Public in his oven voice concerning the need of
the second Victory Loan.
Science has thus made it possible for the voice of the Finance Minister to be
heard in thousands of places in every part of the Country at the same time.     �����

The Country Editor
We have sung about our Sammies and
onr sailor boys in blue; they are men we
love to honor, they are fighting through
and through. Yet I know a shrinking
hero, one who wears no martial dress, so
I'll sing about the gqptlemen who run
the country press.
They're the men behind our Sammies
and the soldiers of the sea, and they back
the work ot mercy and the loan for liberty, and they write the brief of Freedom,
state our cause succint and clear, shooting broadsides at the kaiser once a week
throughout the year.
When our Uucle needs billions for to
carry on the fray, then our country
scribes are mobilized for service without
pay and they freely give their columns
and the power of their press and they
write and boost with fervor, and the loan
is a success.
Though they raise the price of paper,
yet he sticks beside his guns; though his
days are almost eatless, watch him swat
the haughty Hun. Here is to you, country scribe, and may you prosper all your
days, though the devil joins the colors
and the foreman wants a raise, though
the merchant stops his ad and takes a
moving picture slide, may he weather
out the year to come and make some
dough beside.
Treatment For Influenza
A retired physician of wide experience
and former extensive practice has sent to
The Vancouver Sun a course of treatment
which he'declares he has never known
to fail in previous epidemics of influenza.
He prescribes warm blanket packs for 30
or 40 minutes, vapor baths, fomentations
to the lungs, with cool compresses where
there is considerable fever. To relieve
the latter a Warm enema he found as the
most efficacious treatment. The inhalation of hot steam or medicated vapor
should be tried when there is much
bronchial irritation. If there is a tendency to pneumonia, hot fomentations
over the spine, between the shoulders,
are recommended for two hours, changing
them every eight or ten minutes.
This doctor claims he has never known
this treatment to fail in '������effecting a cure
when applied from the start. He de-
Clares no medicine need be given beyond
a mild laxative. The patient should be
allowed ho food for at least 12 hours after
recovery and then a light diet of fruit or
y fruit juices.

Tea, fehe' favorite drink, is even
more Bimple in its composition
than coffee. It contains caffeine
in abont the same strength per cnp
as coffee does. Yet we never hear
of any process for extracting the
"poisonous" caffeine found in tea.
It is to the caffeine fonnd in tea
that the tea owes both its effect
and its usefulness.
One reason that tea agrees better
with the stomach than coffee does
is that ife contains none of the vegetable oils mentioned as an ingredient in coffee. Tea does contain,
however, a much large proportion
of tannin than coffee does. For
this reason it is much more likely
to produce chronic constipation,
which is probably the most harmful result from drinking tea.
The one redeeming fact about
the occurrence of tannin in both
tea and coffee is that being much
less freely soluble than caffeine,
which is the desirable element in
either tea or coffee, it is not found
in a very great amount when the
tea or coffee is properly made.
If either tea or coffee is drawn
off from the grounds quickly after
the decoction is brought to the
boiling point, the tannin is left in
the grounds, and the solution of
caffeine which is the characteristic
flavor of the beverage is obtained.
Every tea drinker realizes the
difference between the delicate
flavour of a cup of tea freshly and
rightly made and one that has
been allowed to stand .for even a
few minutes after steeping. If
allowed to stand more than a minute beyond the boiling point an
otherwise harmless beverage has
been made both obnoxious to the
taste and positively harmful to
the systemX'.X'-";i:.
Let me repeat, then, that the
cafieine in either tea or coffee, so'
far from being injurious,   is the
ne ingredient in either to which:
they owe their very general accept'-
He Did Not Bite
Miss Daisy Inciter has brougnt back
from London a story of Charles Darwin:
"Two English boys," said Miss
Leiter, "being friends of Darwin,
thought one day they would play
a joke on him. They caught a
butterfly, a grasshopper, a beetle
and a centipede, and out of these
creatures they made a strange,
compoeite insect. They took the
centipede's body, the butterfly's
wings, the grasshopper's legs and
the beetle's head, and fehey glued
them together carefully. Then,
with their new bug in a box, they
knocked at Darwin's door.
" 'We caught tbis bug in a
field,' thep said. 'Can you tell us
what kind of a bug it is sir?'
' 'Darwin looked at the bog and
then be looked at the boys. Ee
smiled slightly.
" 'Did it hum when you caught
it?' he asked.
" 'Yes,' they answered, nudging
one another.
"'Then,' said Darwin, 'it ia a
humbug.' "���New York Tribune.

From British Shipyard
Building of a steel 'ship without

ind its construction may mark a
new era in the shipbuilding industry.
A process of electrical welding was
used for joining thc plates, in place
of the usual riveting and caulking.
By means of an electric arc, the
joints are submitted to intense heat,
and thc plates are fused together.
Thc process is not entirely ncw, as
auxiliary work has been done in the
past by electric welding. During (he

Cards For Clothing Now
In Vienna���Government Has to Aid
The prices of clothing in Austria
havc now reached such an enormous
figure that the government is obliged to extend the privilege of a permit for the purchase of slate clothing to middle class families. Persons
with incomes of $3,200 arc now classed with thc paupers, says llic New
Vork World.,
To meet their pressing needs the
government is organizing special
bureaus for the sale of men's suits
from $35 to $75, men's and women's
winter coats at from $32 to $67, women's suits at from $28 to $70, and
waists froni $2 to $15. The demand
for clothing is colossal, especially
from thc great middle class, which
is unable to pay tailors $200 for ordinary suit's.
In the past six months the government has sold clothing worth $750,-
000 monthly and still has several
million yards of woollen goods. The
factories ot Vienna and lower Austria arc busy making for winter
needs. The stores must bc content
with a 10 pcr cent, commission. Thc
government warns the public that it

How Animals Take Gas
Masks for Horses, Dogs and   Mules
Have Been Manufactured
There is probably no war in history iu which animals have had such
care and attention as in the present
conflict. The allies have been punctilious in this regard, and experts
and veterinarians havc been assigned to look after horses and mules, to
sec that lliey arc not overworked and
to attend them in illness. The use
of gas by the Germans was a considerable problem for some time, as
it killed many of the animals, but this
has now been overcome owing to the
fact that suitable gas masks for
horses, dogs and mules arc being
manufactured to  protect them.

she and Austria arc going to enforce thc importation of spirituous

dead butterflies, bees and other insects. The birds alone appeared to
be immune, and the sparrow was
never known to pay the least attention to the gas funics, often dying
high through them unharmed.
Snakes and earthworms were found
dead many inches under ground,

War Efficiency an
National Prosperity
More than a billion and a half dollars distributed
in Canada for exported agricultural produce and
the products of labor in the fiscal year ending
March 31, 1918, has kept Canada busy and
prosperous in spite of the war.
(CANADA'S production in such enormous
quantities was made possible only by the
money received through Canada's War
Loans. Canada thus was enabled to assist the
Allies in their purchases here by establishing
financial credits for their use in this country.
CANADA'S war loans not only
have sustained Canada's war
effort, but they have kept the wheels
of production turning as they never
turned before.
\ This is the flood of cash which
poured in to Canada's farms for their
exports in the fiscal year 1918, for:���
Butter $   2,000,000
Cheese     36,602,000
Eggs      2,271,00(X
Oats    37,644,000
Wheat  366,341,000
Flour    95,896,000
Meats     76,729,000
Vegetables     19,034,000
Over six hundred and thirty-six
million dollars for exported farm
products alone I
��� ".���������������,*���������*
AND the workers of Canada also
shared greatly in Canada's export trade.
For their products there was distributed in Canada, during the year:
Munitions..;..; ,._ ��450,000,000
Metals.......    92,083,000
Vehicles............    22,776,000
Wood Pulp and Paper..    59,599,000
These huge sums were spent in
Canada by the Allies.
Canada's own war expenditure for
the fiscal year 1918 was $342,762,000.
And the bulk of all these expenditures, the foundation of Canada's
prosperity and war effectiveness, was
made possible only because the subscribers to Canada's war Joans furnished the working capital.
*        *        ���
/CANADA must keep this great
^-^ work going���must produce as
never before; must work, fight, save
and lend as she has never yet done to
bring victory and a lasting peace to
a war-ridden world. -
But Canada to-day (thanks to her
great export trade), is in a better position now than ever, to carry on.
The Victory Loan 1918 will keep
Canada busy, will enable her to maintain her great export business; and it
will make Canada more efficient than
ever, because her prosperity will not
be diminished and her determination
to work, fight and win will be
stronger than it has ever been before.

Horse Drinks First
Tbe son of a leading manufacturer of Brussels, whose two brothers have been killed at the front,
tells the following anecdote, which
dates from' the.-first' summer of the
war: '..-.'.'
"It had been a hot day and
King Albert, who had not left the
trenches for honrs, was suffering
from thirst. He aHked for something to drink, bnt not a soldier
had anything left. Back of the
trenches a man Baw a horse drinking and went over and started to
poll the bucket away.
11 'Don't do that,' said the King.
���Let the poor animal drink; perhaps it needs it more than I do.'
v"It was'npt until ;the. horse had
finished drinking that the King
took up tbe bucket and drank the
few drops that remained.''
