The Smelter Quits
The Greenwood smelter will
close down some time next week,
md H. E. Van Wagenen, manager
for the C. C. Co. informs The
Ledge that he 'regrets to say that
the close-down will be a permanent one. There is not enough of
pay-grade ore to carry on smelting
operations here, and not enough
ore of a fluxing character to warrant concentrates from Copper
Mountain being treated here,
hence it would not be advisable to
build a reverberatory furnace in
Greenwood. The Greenwood smelter and Mother Lode mine will be
dismantled, unless some other company wishe>to purchase and operate them. There is still plenty of
resources undeveloped around this
town to make it a prosperous community, but work and capital is
necessary to bring this about.
Necessity is etill the mother of invention, and this is a good time to
iufcern the Micawbers and gefe busy.

Lachmund says, in refering to
the closing of the smelter.
"However, this should not mean
that there will be no more smelting at Greenwood. There is still
enough ore left in the Boundary
to smelt at a profit at Greenwood."

The Smelter Situation
Dr. MacLean. provincial secretary, came to town on Saturday,
to discuss the smelter situation
with the president, consulting
engineer, and general manager of
the Canada Copper Co.
Some weeks ago a committee of
the cifeizens of Greenwood submitted a proposal to the Government
which was thought would prevent
the company from terminating
their operations in this district.
This proposal was to the effect fehat
the Provincial Government should
guarantee fehe bonds of the company to enable them to immediately secure sufficient funds feo erect a
reverbatory plant at Greenwood feo
treat the concenferates from Copper Mountain at the local smelter.
It was also hoped that in addition
there would be a small amount
available, from tbe bond issue, to
do some development on the company's Phoenix mines.
Dr.'gMacLean submitted these
proposals to his colleagues in the
Governmant, and was assured of'
their co-operation, provided it
could be shown thafe the security
for said guarantee would be ample.
After hiB arrival in Greenwood he
discussed the matter with Mr. Van
Wagenen, bufe the general manager
waB not in a position to decide on
this important matter before discussing fehe same with his principals.
After fehis latter discussion took
place Dr. MacLean was again call-
en in, and was informed, that
while the Government's offer was
greafely appreciated; the company
did nofe feel ��� justified in accepting
ife, as they were not satisfied that
such an undertaking would be a
financial success, owing to the
doubt as feo whether a sufficient
amount of fluxing ore, suitable feo
smelfe fehe Copper Mountuin concentrates was available for a permanent operation in this district.
Dr. McLean wi-b������������fcaturiiiy kaenj^
disappointed, but is hopeful, thafe
while the smelter is ceasing for the
present, that the large ore deposits
in this district will be developed
by some company.
The cifeizens of Greenwood and
district greatly appreciate Dr. Mac-
Lean's efforts in fehis matter. The
CG. Co. are willing to have any
company take over and operate
their smelter and mines in district
on a royalty basis. No douM the
government would render all assistance possible to any company-
wishing to operate the smelter and
mines in fehis city and district.-

The Windsor of Geimany
Potsdam    Can   Be    Reached    From
London by Water
The principal royal and imperial
residence is in Berlin, the capital of
thc empire, so that Potsdam is to
Berlin somewhat what Windsor is to
Thc principal residence of the British royal family is Buckingham Palace in London. Windsor Castle is a
secondary residence, a sort of rural
retreat, and, all things considered, the
most picturesque royal residence in
the world.
It will be a surprise to most readers to learn that there is water com-
i nnmicalion between London and
Potsdam, but such is the fact. This
connection consists of the River
Thames, the North Sea, thc River
Elbe- in  Germany, and a canal which
'connects the Elbe and the river Havel. Ami Potsdam is ou the Havel.
Jt is interest'.ig to recall the fact
that in 1832 a small frigate, the. Royal
Louise, named after lhe Queen of
Prussia, and built at Woolwich, England,  wa.s  presented  to  Prussia.
From lhe Thames it was towed to
Rotterdam, Holland, and thence sailed by a crew of British blue jackets
up tlie Elbe and through the canal
to Potsdam, where the gift was accepted by thc Prussian royal family
and  lhc  Prussian court.
It was in this model craft that lhe
present   emperor    and     his     brother,

Seed Grain in Caaaua
Proving Greater Problem Than Was
Representatives of mortgage companies havc hold a conference with
the government of Saskatchewan in
regard to the seedgrain situation
which in some parts of thc province
is proving a greater problem than
was at first anticipated. The system
of administering seedgrain relief is
for thc rural municipalities to borrow
such funds as they require to furnish
their ratepayers witli seed and to
take security in thc form of mortgages on tlic crop which take priority over all other encumbrances with
thc exception of first mortgages. In
addition they have a seedgrain lien
on thc crop for two crops from the
land seeded with llic grain advanced
on credit. They havc not experienced difficulty in borrowing in thc past
except in a very few cases where the
provincial governments have bad to
guarantee the loans of thc municipalities to the banks. This year some
municipalities iind    it    necessary    to

Americans now count among
prisoners fifty-one members of

the most sadly disillusioned men
from the German emperor's army.
Thc men still ai;e convinced that thcy
were played a shabby trick in being
taken prisoner, though they are
quickly becoming reconciled to their
lot by lhcir generous rations of food
ind tobacco.
The Germans for several days' had
been coming forward unarmed out ot"
their trenches, creeping forward to
a point midway between the two
lines, where thcy had been given
bread and tobacco. ,
Thc other day when they came
over they were told that the nex'.
time each man would receive five
sacks of tobacco instead of one sack.
The opportunity was too goo_d to bc
lost and instead of groups of. three,
fonr and five, as heretofore, fifty-one
men came in a group, eager for the
tobaccc and food.
The Germans were hospitably re~
ceived at the customary rendezvous, _
placed into small groups and invited
to come to another spot where the
distribution would take place. That
spot proved to be thc intelligence
office of thc American division, where
the Landwhcrs were informed that
they were prisoners.
The Germans indignantly demanded to bc sent back to their lines immediately, together with their rations
of rive sacks of tobacco and bread,
biit they gradually came to renounce
their demand lhat thcy bc returned,
especially when thcy saw the treatment accorded to the American soldiers to them and even to the other
prisoners. The Landwher will receive their extra rations as per

Cream. For it is therapeutic and
curative in effect as well as softening and cleansing. Used daily ���
it keeps the complexion free of

tissues, and holds thc youthful
color and freshness oil women
want t-> retain. There is no substitute, no "just as good."

No Wonder Civilians arc Puzzled by
Military Details
A French paper, a soldier's sheet,
sets out to explain how to tell an
officer when yon sec one. ]t is evident that not only civilians are puzzled by such little military details,
and not much wonder! Look at the
right shoulder, says thc poiln's paper;
if tlure is nothing; there, look at the
lower part of the upper right arm. If
there are no chevrons he is a general, for generals wear their insignia
in lhcir lints. If he has nothing in
his hat, then ho is a private, unless
he has two wings, and then, of
course, he will hc an aviator. As for
thc chevrons and the subtracting oi"
their number froni the number of
stripes on the hat, it becomes a veritable problem in mental arithmetic,
and even then you are not certain
whether you are speaking to a captain
or a major. The top of th.e hat is
important and simple of interpretation. If red, it denotes infantry; if
blue, with sold braid, cavalry; and if
the man in question wears no hat,
well, then he may be a Serbian eol-
joitcl without liis hat! -��� (..'hriitian

German Traps on Every Hand
The Americans are still lintjing
goods and hidden explosives in Cha-
t.l-Chahcry. The latest trap of this
kind was an innocent appearing walking stick, suspended at thc entrance
of a dugout, as if il had been left by
its hurriedly departing owner. Investigation showed that a fine wire
ran from the cane to a nearby rock
where it was connected with a 2?

Food Value of Milk
There is undoubtedly no food ��o
essential lo the development of mankind as milk. First, it is the onlv
food which man can lake from infancy r-nd pjotlucc growth to maturity. Second, milk if taken in
liberal quantities is thc greatest
disease resisting food found in thc
entire category of foods; and third,
it is one of the most economical of
all foods. Milk is still thc cheapest
aninipl  product on the market.

Only Afraid of Name
Prince of Wales  Is a Very Popular
The Canadian corps is charmed
with its "young stall officer, the Prince
of Wales. His simple maimers, keen
interest and gay youth win him
friends wherever he goes, and this is
pretty well everywhere. From dawn
to dark- hc visits divisions, brigades
and battalions. It is an open secret
that he is never so happy as when up
in th.e forward areas, and his A.D.C.
must be the most worried man in
France. He pops up unexpectedly,
but his natural vivacity sets everybody at ease. It is nol a state secret
to say that many members of the
Canadian corps viewed with "some
alarm tlic coming of thc heir to the
throne and there was great researching into forms of addre-s and etiquette. Now they have taken him to
their hearts and he bids fair to become the most popular young' officer
in the corps. Commenting on thc
embarrassment caused by one of his
sudden incursions hc remarked:
"They can't be afraid of inc. It is
only of the name." It is a happy
augury that our future king should
be loved and honored rather than

Storage of Potatoes
Many have grown potatoes this
year who never did so before, and
consequently will be unfamiliar
with the best methods of protecting the crop.
Owing to the excessive rains this
autumn, potatoes in some districts
have been infected with rot, and
many have been harvested under
unfavorable conditions. In many
instances fehey have been stored in
cellars before being properly dried.
Potatoes showing any indication of
rot Bhould not be stored with
sound ones. This is especially true
if there are abnormal conditions of
moisture, as such conditions will
cause a greater activity of the fnn-
gus and, consequently, quicker
rotting of the potatoes.
Potatoes should be stored in as
dry and cool a place as possiMe
without freezing. The drier they
can be kept the less rot will develop.
Tbis year, especially, potatoes
should be carefully sorted within
from three to four weeks aftar
storing in the cellar, those showing
any signs of developing rot being
discarded. Tbis will protect fehe
remainder of the crop.

Pat Casey's Prayer
An Irish soldier, after ten
months of hard active service, applied for furlough. His request
was granted, and then it dawned
on him that he had no money to
taka advantage of his holiday. He
wanted $100 to go feo Paris.
He was at his wife's end, there
being no time to be lost, when he
recalled his old mother's advice to
apply to the good God above in
time of trouble. So he wrote and
posted this letter:
"Dear Lord: Here I am after
fighfein' ten months in mud up to
me neck. The work is somewhat
unpleasant, but Ye'll be glad to
hear that I killed fifty Germans.
Now I'm a little tired and have me
furlough all right, but I have no
money left, having spent most of
what I had for prayer books. Ask
Father McCarthy if Ye don't believe me. So, Lord, I ask ye iu
the name of all the saints for the
small sum of 100 dollars. Sure,
ye'll never miss it, and if ye send
the money I'll never forget ye in
my prayers.
In'due course fehis appeal reached fehe censor's office which happened in this particular locality feo
be housed in the Y.M.C.A. quarters. The letter was passed around
and aroused considereble attention
and dicussiou and interest, as
Casey was known to be a brave
and cheerful fighter.
Contributions were sought, and
finally the snm of fifty dollars was
raised. This was sent to the applicant, without comment, in a
Y.M.C.A. envelope. The next day
the following acknowledgment
was received:
"Dear Lord: I've received your
50 dollars as per application for
furlough money, and I thank ye.
May yer shadow never grow less.
But I make so bold as to give ye
a word of warnin'. Send the next
money by fehe K. of C's.: Ye sent
the last by the Y.M.C.A. and they
hipped half of it on ye.
