Get
Behind Greenwood,
Spokane!
Mining Truth directs the attention of citizens of Spokane, and
particularly jhe Chamber of Commerce and other quasi-public
organizations, feo the front-page
article in this issue, wherein it is
proposed feo revive the smelting
enterprise at Greenwood, B. C,
under independent management
and with fehe combined financial
aid of the State of Washington ancl
Province of Br.'tish Columbia.
In our opinj in this is a sane ana.
entirely feasible reconstructive
project that willjmean much feo our
own prosperity and even more to
the great mineralized area to the
north, on both sides of the international line. No other movement would meet with such popular approval in a territory that
contributes largely to this city's
prosperity and which naturally
looks to us tor practical aid in
development^ itsjresources.   .
The Jfirst argument Tagainsfe the
suggestion   naturally turns   upon
the fact thafc'the property  is in
British Columbia'and that nothing
of similar nature has ever before
been undertaken. [The best answer
is* thafe the   property Qhas   always
been owned by "an"'American company andjthafe, as a'matter of fact,
there are~several "similar projects,
noticeably the^'nickeltfproperties of
Sudbury,   owned   in   the   United
States.    Another"argument is thafe
import and export'duties might interfere with freeimovement of ores
from^.bothj sides] of the line,   iln
answer,?ife"mayjbe"{said|fehat  there
are no import duties upon taw ores
going into Canada and  thafe   * any
event'theTplant^would ber bonded
by the^United^'iStates government
so that^bullion'jfderived from  ores
from this- side bfffche line could be
returned J'fcoJJthis "market,. As   a
ffiatter   of Jfact, .the only, logical
objection to the project is that the
Sfcafce   of   Washington   could   nofe
legally go behind a British Columbia "enterprise"^ with financial'aid.
That remains to be seen, but in
anyjevent there is  no legal hindrance tojstrong moral support.
Mining Truth suggests that the
Spokane Chamber of Commerce
take the lead in this movement,
and as a first step get into touch
with other communities to ascertain the sentiment, and, if enoour- ~"
aged, call a'represenfeative meeting
at which all details could be
threshed out and a concrete plan
adopted. The British Columbia
government has already promised
material aid in reviving tbe fortunes of fehe plan fe, which has been
in successful operation for almost
twenty years. Since Canada and
the United Sfeates are firm allies in
world affairs, ife seems to us that
an international agreement to bene- ���
fit a great mineral territory which
happens tojbe ou both sides of an
imaginary line offers no unsur-
mpnhtable difficulties. Small difficulties can all be brushed away by
common sense and? reliable expert
advice.���Spokane  Mining   Truth.

A woman, one of 30,000 British
working for the Y, M.*C. A., was
assigned to scrub the Eagle Hut
floor in Londou. She had done
little manual work in her life, bufe
accepted the job without protest
and wenfe down on her knees with
a pail of hot water, a cloth and a
cake of soap. Soon the water in
pail was black. A man in^uniform
passed. The yeoman looked up
and asked him if he would mind
emptying the pail and refilling ife
with clean water.
There was a pause, then this
reply:
"Dammit, madam, I'm an officer!"
This time there was no pause,
bufe like a flash the scrubwoman retorted:

Every Year Seed in Increasing Quan
tities Is Being Produced
White, alsikc and sweet clovers
jgrow abundantly in th.e irrigated districts of Southern Alberta and in the
central and northern parts of thc
province without irrigation. Thc prolificacy with which white clover
grows in Central Alberta is especially
noticeable in tlie residential parts of
Edmonton, where the clover has overgrown thc lawn grass ou tlie borders of the streets, giving them a carpet of wdiite throughout the summer.
It spreads spontaneously aud is perfectly hardy.
Alsikc clover is a very hardy crop
and is grown successfully in many
parts of Alberta, with and without irrigation, both for hay and pasture.
In Central Alberta it is frequently
grown with timothy. South of Edmonton a farmer has a field of alsike
which was planted eight years ago,
the growth of which was thicker this
year than with the first crop. This
crop has passed the experimental
stage and every ycar seed in increasing quantities is being produced.
Sweet clover was introduced into
Alberta at a later date than the other
two varieties imnliuited, but it is being grown quite as successfully, and
becoming increasingly popular among
dairy farmers.

Butter  Output   Increasing
High  Standard of Quality    Reached
By Western Canadian Butter
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta are continually increasing their
butter production. Up to thc present
time Manitoba has already exported
one hundred cars this season, and in
addition sufficient creamery butter
has been manufactured within the
province to supply its needs. Thc
other provinces arc also exporting
larger quantities this year, but at the
present time figures are not obtainable. One reason for the steadily increasing export is thc high standard
of quality whicli has been reached hy
Western Canadian butter manufacturers. At recent exhibitions held at
Toronto and Ottawa, exhibitors
from Alberta and Alanitoba carried
off all the principal pries. A high
tribute to thc keeping qualities of the
Western Canadian product is the fact
that thc sample of butter which won
thc silver cup at the Canadian national exhibition at Toronto this year,
with a score of 98.16, was more than
a  month old when judged.
The Saskatchewan Co-operative
Creameries, Limited, thc organization which handles most of the butter
produced iu Saskatchewan recently
i shipped two carloads of butter to Si-
jberia, one from Kegina and one from
Saskatoon. The car from Saskatoon

every way, until Dcrnburg became
minister of lhe colonics; yet, three
years before the war, thc exports
irom her Pacific and African colonies
amounted to almost ��25,000,000 a
year.
The African plantations, so rich iu
possibilities, were hardly fairly begun. South-West Africa is one of the
lincst sheep and cattle countries. The
Germans so killed oil and frightened
off the natives that labor was scarce.
Let us record the letter of von i'ro-
Iha, "the great general of thc mighty
emperor,"  to  the  Hercroes in  1904:
The llerero nation must now leave
the country, lf thc people do it not,
L will compel them with tho big gun.
Within the German frontier every
Herrero wilh or without a rillc will
be shot. 1 will not take over any
more women and children, but I will
either drive them back to their people or have them fired on.
Kulture in South-West Africa killed half the native population, virtually wiped out the Hereros, who
were either slain, man, woman and
child, or forced into the desert to
die  of  thirst.
A vast colonial cmpiie Germany
had. Oppressively, cruelly, loo often,
bureaucratically always, shc ruled it.
She always regarded it as ;i coign
of vantage when to nurse, military
designs against her neighbors. Mr.
Zimmermann's "colonial demands,"
cut down even to a demand for the
return of Geimany's former colonies,
will not lie. too warmly welcomed al
the peace congress, if there is one,
and our Auzac friends will never consent to certain surrenders or restorations.
tie of vinegar, il is really quite difficult lo find a shop that keeps it. The
reason, of course, is that grocers do
not set up shops in the main thoroughfares, and not that there is a
scarcity of them. In fact, there arc
in England over 80,000 retail, grocers'
shops. There are 5,000 co-operative
stores which serve 10,000,000 customers; 10,000 multiple shops supplying
7,000,000 customers; 70,000 small
shops with a roll of 24,000,000 customers, and a large number of the
old-fashioned family grocers. These
figures show the magnitude of thc rationing problem, and suggests that
credit is due not only to the ministry
of food, but to the wholesale houses
and retailers for the smooth way in
which the public have been supplied.

Foch Beginning to    Get    Strategical
Unity on a Large  Scale
The allied successes in France,
Macedonia and Palestine have led
the Cologne Gazette to anxious consideration regarding future military
developments.
"Wc must do Foch lhc justice to
say he is apparently beginning to obtain on a big scale lhat strategical
unity he has already obtained on
French soil," says this leading German newspaper, and, after reviewing
thc situation in thc various theatres
of war, it concedes that the prosecution from all sides of an offensive
against thc alliance of thc central
powers would be a master stroke.
Having mentioned the unity of command and the superiority of thc
allies in men and material as conditions  favoring them, it continues:
"We have already pointed out thc
enviable secrecy observed in the
manufacture of armored tanks and
the training of their crews, which
how number not thousands but tens
of thousands. To these must bc added the increase in the number of
guns, mine-throwers, flame-projectors, machine guns, gas and fog ammunition and airplanes of all kinds.
No proof is necessary that German
industry is unable to accomplish this
iu similar quantities. Especially as
regards the armored tanks there is
no   doubt   that  thc  numerical   super
iority is on  thc sidc of the    enemy,

STRONG PEOPLE NEEDED
The need for people to be healthy
is urgent. Those whom illness has
put outside the ranks of robust men
and women feel their position keenly.
Thcy arc handicapped in every walk
of life, and weak men and nerve-worn
women need more earnestly than ever lo put their health right and become active and strong. Many who
began "patching" months ago are as
ill now as ou the day they began
vainly tinkering with common drugs.
Every ailing man and woman should
remember that thc ills of debility,
nerve exhaustion, indigestion, sleeplessness, neuralgia, and depression
comc from a faulty blood supply.
Woiry, over-work or other causes
have impoverished thc blood and left
the life-stream impure. The nerves
thereby arc starving and the whole
system is languishing for new blood.
In this condition many thousands
havc won back strong nerves and
new health and strength through thc
ncw rich blood Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills actually make. In a weak or
bloodless condition it is not only a
waste of lime and money, but also a
further menace to your health to
tinker with common drugs. Follow
the example of so many thousands
by giving Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
fair trial, and they will transform you
into healthy, active, men and women.
You can get these pills through
any dealer in medicine, or by mail at
50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50

Dominant Factor in Success Is Team
'   Play
Major General Mcwburn, minister
of militia, in an address to tlie army
and navy veterans at the Central
Canada Exhibition, said that the
Canadian army corps in France is
the strongest striking force, bar
none.
"This- is admitted by officials of
thc highest rank, and their records
have proved it at Arras, Amiens ancl
other points lo which thcy were
moved," hc said. "Our casualties have
been heavy, but, thank God, there
were men in the reinforcing pools in
France to fill every gap, and the pools
were rc-fillcd from the corps in ting-
land."
General Mcwburn said Jihc Canadian corps had developed many geniuses and paid high tribute to the
work of General Stewart, of tlie railway troops, who, he said, would
shortly bc appointed director of thc
whole transportation system in
France and Flanders.
"The dominant factor in thc success of our corps is the team play,"
declared thc minister, "In General
Currie wc havc a big man in cvery
sense of the word. lie is idolized
by every man under him. All are
war-weary, war-tired, but determined
to sec it "through to a successful conclusion."
Yankee Ingenuity
Popular    American    Sport    Directed
Toward Winning War
Scarcely a day passes but that the
news reports tell us cf some new
evidence of thc-application of Yankee
ingenuity to thc prosecution of the
war. The latest sample is credited
lo an Indian contingent which successfully tried out setting bear traps
in No -Man's Land. Thc Indians were
simply applying an idea of their own
west where big game is plentiful. The
traps are placed outside the American wire, and when Fritz crawls out
to gain a little information he---gets
caught.
Another truly American idea which
is saving many lives in thefront lines
are the so-called "buckslibt squads."
These squads are made up of crack
trap shooters. Instead of directing
their efforts on clay pigeons thcy deflect hand grenades which the Germans hurl toward their trenches. The
force of a full charge of buckshot on
a Mills bomb, for instance, is to
make it fail many yards, short of the
object for which it was intended: It
explodes, of course, but "outside the
trench, and the steel particles fly
harmlessly over the heads of thc men.
Thus a popular American sport has
been directed toward winning thc
war.���Pittsburgh Sun.

Allied Ultimatum   to   the    Germans
Now Being Urged
An ultimatum to Germany regarding thc ruthless destruction of cities
and private property in northern
France and Belgium is being urged
on the allies and is under consideration.
The burning of Cambrai and St.
Qucutin and the devastation of thc
most populous regions of Europe, as
the Germans retreat, has aroused
great indignation, and it is said in
diplomatic circles that Germany
would be 'warned that if shc allows
thc work of destruction to continue
severe  reprisals will  follow.
It is suggested that cities of thc
Rhine should be marked for destruction and Berlin told that for every
French and Belgian city ruined without military reason a city equally important and valuable sentimentally
and materially will bc laid waste.
An official despatch from France
quotes the Petit Parisicii as follows:
"Cambrai is burning. This is the
ncw crime accomplished by those
great destroyers of life. . Cambrai,
the historical city, wilh all her memories pf the past; Cambrai, the modern town, wilh its industries, is falling to pieces among a red and black
whirlwind of sparks and flames. Cambrai is at the present moment but an
enormous fire. The Germans havc
left, but threw as they went their incendiary torches on lhe valuable remembrances of ancient Fiance. Oui
allies, who had taken such precautious to save the town, contemplate,
horror-stricken, the Germans' impious .work."

arc Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Spain, Chile, Argentina and
Mexico. About three-fourths of the

Prejudice Against "Weeds" Hard to
Break Down
Mr. John Morgan Richards, who
has just died at the age of 77 in the
Isle of Wight,- was the father of
"John Oliver Robbes" (Mrs. Craigie)
but his death will make a special appeal to the imagination for quite another reason. Mr. Richards was thc
man who introduced and popularized
the cigarette into'England in 1877.
When he came from thc United
States of America ten ycar earlier,
smoking in England was, excepting
among the well-to-do, practically con-
lined to pipes and cigars. liis acute
business mind grasped the possibilities of the cigaretltc, and he entered
into a contract with a big U. S. concern to boom their products in England. "Richmond Gem" was the first
brand that was placed on the English market, and thc vigorous advertising campaign with whicli it was
launched proving efficiently successful, it was quickly followed by several old-time favorites. Prejudice,
especially of the retail tobacco trades,
was hard to break down, and it was
only by t lur most drastic pioneering
methods that the. cheap cigarette
pushed its way into popularity. Now
the. packet cigarette is the great
standby of the tobacco trade, and
such of the U. S. brands mentioned
as are still to be bought, meet with
a 'competition from British made
smokes which must have caused Mr.
! Richards to smile when he recalled
'the hostility with which his early
ventures iu cigarette Selling were
greeted.
'The actual usc of cigarettes among
English-speaking people came back
with the British troops from the
Crimean war.

Mud Homes in Mesopotamia
"Desirable Residences" Shaped   Like
Bee Hives
Mesopotamia, where we are lighting the Turks, boasts some very
ipiaint dwelling houses. These "desirable residences" are made of mud,
and are shaped like bee hives, whole
villages and towers being built in this
peculiar form of architecture. Some
of lhe places which have been crested from the Turks by the hostile
Arabs in .lhe neighborhood of Mecca
and Medina are constructed in this
extraordinary  fashion.
As the country in these parts is
destitute of trees from which to hew
rafters, and also in some places devoid of stone, thc natives build these
quaint, domed habitations ol" sun-
dried mud bricks.
Each "home" consists of several
of these hives standing near together, and surrounded by a wall of similar material to that of which the
hives .arc built. One or more of
these houses is used to live in, according to thc accommodation required; another is used for the animals, and still another serves for the
granary. The rest arc-used for various other purposes, thc number of
them varying in accordance with the.
means and possessions of the proprietor.
Visitors Cannot Feed Bread to Birds

persons who do feed the pigeons
nowadays don't care to pay 25 cents
a pint for peanuts just to see the
birds peck. It's a violation of the

to birds, so thc pigeons have to content themselves principally 'with!
scanty leavings from the cab horses' I

The Value of a   Neighbor
A Good On�� U a Real Prize    and
Hard to Find
Did you ever realize thc value of a
true neighbor? If not, just lose one
who has lived hy you /or a dozen or
more years and sec what a hole there
is left in the community when he is
go:>c. Not all men are. good neighbors. It lakes a real big man to bc
a good friend and neighbor. They do
not grow on every bush, and Ihey are
not found on every farm, but when
you find one you have found a rcal
prize. What is a good neighbor! A
good neighbor is one who i.s always
trying to do .something to make other folks happy and at thc same time
's '-.irde happy in helping others. A
good neighbor is a man who will
make a little sacrifice himself in order to help a brother farmer. A man
who always tries to see how much
there is iu it for him before he helps
a neighbor is a poor excuse of a
friend, and is too selfish to ever see
the bright side of life, (live us the
good old-fashioned neighbor, ili.it
will comc in to chat for an evening
and eat an apple and some popcorn
on a long winter's evening, and who

Food actually forms nc��, xtch blood, it Is

Even beauty of disposition and character are marred when the blood gets thin

You lose sleep, suffer from headaches,
digestion fails, and you get to looking on

But as your system is restored by this

you feel the vigor and energy which

In The Glow Of Christmas
In the glow of Christmas giving
and merriment our hearts become
-ulVtisi'd with the Christ-like impulse of kindly, gputle greeting,
unci respect for the rights of others,
obedience to tho most lofty ideals
of human intercourse, and deference to our fellow-beings as life
.-���eein? illumined by the ineffable
.uul softened light of the Star of
Bethlehem.
Let us sit down, iu the twilight,
by the flickering firelight, and
think over for a moment just how
much we owe to others for whatever happiness we enjoy. Tbiuk a
moment���think reflectively, as did
Sidney Lanier when he said:
"I shut myself in with my soul,
j     And the shapes came eddying forth."

the passing friend, whose memory
is only preserved in a yellow
bundle oF letters���letters from
whose fading sentences came the
inspiration that influences a life
career.
Nor are all faces those of the
dead. Many, indeed, are still seen
in every day life. Our friends���
the people wo meet in business or
joiu in pleasure���how many have
helped to mould our lives aB we
reckon them up in the fading
light of the dying Christmas firel
I am reminded of the famous
painting which hangs for universal
inspiration in Watts' room in the
Wallace collection, ou the Thames
embankment iu London. A great
world circuling through infinite
space is represented���surmounted
by a harp with but one string; but
that string vibrates with the spirit
of Hope, and underneath it is a
motto especially appropriate for
Christmas-tide���
"To give is to gain."
And unless Christmas can be
kept as a time, of giving; nhiess
that giving means some sacrifice
and some radiance of joy and cofii-
fort and hope to a human being, it
will be indeed a'dull and cheerless
Yuletido. ������'���'.
jje.t this Christmas be one. of
happiness, and the new year will
be radiant with hope and filled
with the itnpuVe of doing something fot someboJj' everyday.
The books will balance ���' if. tbe impulse be actuated by fair Dlay���
fair play to every fel.iow-being.?
With this sublimation will come
the great, consciousness of. peace
and benediction from Him who
having lived a perfect life on earth
now reigns. ; over that universal
kingdom toward which the heart
and soul of man have ever turned
for the "peace that passeth understanding" and the good will whose
primal chord vibrates the harp-
strings of. . Hope.���-Joe Mitchell
Chappie,
Our Friend Billy
I met Dr. William Williamson in
Nakusp 25 years ago, when he was connected with the railway hospital in that
town. I was the Colonel to lum, and he
was Billy to me. For 24 years after
he left Nakusp, I never saw nor heard of
him, until we met at a Canadian Dance-
and Concert in San Diego last winter.
He was practising as an eye specialist in
that city, and had made $90,000 in seven
years. During the winter we were constant companions, and he was the best
friend l!had;in'California. If I had been
a deity he could not have treated me
better. Hour after hour we sat together
talking about Dan McGillivray, Dan
Dunn, Jack NcMartin, Billy McLean,
Big Jim Macdonuell, Jake Sersoti, iDave
McBeath, and many other famous old-
timers who have climbed the golden
shaft.
Just before I came north in the spring,
Billy made me faithfully promise that I
would call on him first, when I returned
to the oldest town in California. All
summer long I had been day dreaming
about the glorious times Billy and I
would have' in the flowery South this
winter. How often do our beautiful
edifices in the ozone drop into the sump
of destruction! The other Thursday
Billy went to Los Angeles ou business,
and in three days acute pneumonia drove
liim across the dark river. Thus does
death so often remove the roses from our
earthly trail, while the hissing serpents
go untouched.
I do not mourn for Billy, for only the
selfish grieve when a comrade drops out
of the line aud goes west. I promised
Billy that I would see him again, and I
will keep my word. It may not be for
years, but some day, across the big
divide, in that ethereal laud, where the
scenery is all flowers, the atmosphere all
sunshine, the formation all diamonds,
and Ihe sounds all music, I will meet
Billy and assist him and the other angels
to shower this flesh-potted mundane
sphere, with thoughts of love, hope,
friendship aud generosity. Ere the robins again northward fly I hope to drop a
flower on Billy's grave, in memory of one
of the dearest and most noble friends, I
ever had in this vale of tears, sorrow, and
good-byes.

Is broodingtlike a'gentle spirit o'er
The still and pulseless world.   Hark! on the winds
The bell's deep tones are swelling; 'tis the knell
Of the departed year.   No funeral train
Is sweeping past; yet, on the stream and wood,
With melancholy light the moonbeams rest
Like a pale, spotless shroud; the air is stirred
As by "a ruourner's]sigh;*and on "yon-cloud,
That floats so still and placidly through hearen,
The spiritjjf the'seasons seem to stand���
Young Spring.ibright Summer, Autumn's mImm  form
And winter with his aged locks���and breathe
Iu mournful cadences that comes abroad
Like the far- windharpVwild and tomchinglwail,
A melancholy dirge o'er the dead year,
Gone from the earth forever.    'Tis a time
For memory and for tears.   Within th�� deep,
Still chambers of the heart a spectre|dim,
Whose tuues'are'like the wizard voice of Time
Heard from the tomb of ages, points*its cold
And solemn finger to thelbeautiful
And holy visions that have passed away,
And left no shadow of their loyelinsss
On the dead���\vaste of life.   Theiyean
Has gone,[aud with itjmany a1 glorious throng
Of happy dreams.QIts^mark'is on leach^brcw,
Its shadow in each heart.   Ia its swift coarse
It waved its scepter o'er the beaatifal;
And they are not.   It laidlits pallid hand
Upon the strong man, and^the haughty form
Is fallen, and the flashingjeye is dlia.
It trod the hall of revelry"where"throng��d
The bright aud }oyous, and the tearfal wail
Of stricken ones is^heard^where'erst the soag
And reckless shout resounded,    It'ptssed o'ar
Ths battle plain where sword andjspear and skiel*
Flashed in the light of midday, and tha streagtk
Of.serried^hosts is shivered, and'thelgrass,
Green from the soil of carnage,'waves above
The crushed and'moulderingiskeleton.    It caata
And faded like a wreatae.of mist^atleve.
Yet ere it melted in tke viewless air
It heralded its millions to their home
In the dim land of dreams.   Remorseless Time-
Fierce spirit of the]glass and scythe���what power
Can stay^him in his silent course,'orjnelt
His iron heart to pity?   On, still ou
He presses, and forever.   The prond bird,
The condor'of the Andes.'that can'soar
Through heaven's unfathomable depths, or brave
The fury of the northern hurricane,
And bathe his plumage in tke thunder's home,
Furl his broad wings at nightfall and sinks dowa
To rest upon his mountain crag���but Time
Knows not the]weight"of sleep pr weariaess,
And night's deep darkness|has no ckai�� to^bini
His'rushinglpinion	
Time, the tomb-buiider, holds his'fierce eareer,
Dark, stern,'all pitiless, and pauses not
Amid the'mighty.'wrccks^that'strewjhis'pstk
.To sit and muse, like other conquerors
Upon the fearful ruin he has wroaght!
