proposals made to continue the

operate it themselves.
The second proposal is for an independent company to lease the
smelter, and pay a royalty upon
the ore used from the C. C. Co's
mines.
The third proposal is to buy the
smelter, build a lead stack, and
operate ib with copper, lead and
silver ores from B. C. and U. S.

no reason why the smelter should
remain cold beyond a few weeks.

The Sword is Sheathed
Modern   Devices    Have    Supplanted
Old Weapon
There is a curious kind of irony in
the fact that, a weapon, once so universal as tlie sword should now
have become hardly more than ;i metaphor. Wc speak, and write, of "victory by the sword," or of "a peace
imposed by the sword," though the j
sword is now more a decorative ob-1
ject for parade, functions than a piece
of tempered steel for killing purposes.
Shrapnel, high explosives, poison gas,
and the rest of the too ingenious
modern devilries havc left thc more
heroic, weapon to rust in its sheath.
Yet it will probably never bc supplanted as a metaphor because it is
picturesque, and has a bite in it
which no other word possesses. Certainly poets are not likely to substitute anything else for ily��--Loiidon

Reindeer a Food Factor
Alaskan Animals Double Their Number Every Three Years
There arc more, than 200,000 reindeer in the Alaskan herds. When the
ice left Behring Sea this year, thc
first ship of a fleet of cold storage
vessels started from. Nome for Seat-
lie with a cargo of reindeer meat,
to be sold in competition With beef
and other moats. The . average
weight of the three-year-old deer,
dressed, is 150 pounds.; More than
10 per cent, of the reindeer in Alaska
are surplus males.
The amount of reindeer to. be
shipped this ��� year, to be sure, .will
not he .sufficient-to' make an appreciable dent in the price of other
meats, but considering that reindeer
double, their number every three
ycars, besides leaving 10 per cent, of
the entire herd for the market, it
will be seen that- these northern-ani-.
nial's soon will -'become a factor in
th.e economic affairs of the nation.

Of Great Advantage in Present Emergency
A paper mill at Neonah, Wis., is
making a product which is likely to
prove of advantage in the present
emergency. It is a substitute for
absorbent cotton, made from ground
wood. It is being turned out at tlic
rate of three or four tons a day, and
advantages arc claimed for it, in the
fact that it can bc applied directly
to open wounds, and also thc cheapness with which it can bc manufactured and sold. It appears in the form
in which cotton batting is usually
produced, except that thc ground
wood is spun or rolled out up.on thc
machines, in thc form of sheets of
the purest white, of gossamer thinness and of such lightness in proportion to its bulk that four thousand pounds can bc loaded in thc ordinary freight car. Layer upon layer
of these sheets are placed one upon
the other, simulating very closely thc
appearance of the cotton  product.

The Concrete Ship
Is  Notable for Its Wonderful Durability
General interest has been aroused
by the success of the new concrete
ocean-going steamer "Faith," whicli
is plying between Calitornia and
British Columbia ports, but not many
know that the concrete ship has a
long history and passed thc experimental stage  many years ago.
So. far back as 1849 a concrete
rowboat was built by M. Lambot of
Carces, France. It was exhibited at
the Paris Exhibition in 1855 and is
reported to be still in service. . A
large concrete vessel pf rowboat
type, thc "Zecmccuv," was built at
bas van Gent, Holland, in 1887. It
has been in several collisions . and
has been frozen in thc ice many winters, but it is still in use at Amsterdam. From 1897 to 1905 Carlo Ga-
bellinis of Rome built various types
of concrete scows, barges, and pontoons, some of '.them of 150 tons. The
first ship of the kind in Germany of
which there is any trace was built in
190!) at Frankfort-on-Main, a freighter oi 200 tons, for river service.   .
To Canada belongs the honor of
building the first concrete boat in
North America, according to Thc
Scientific American,-from, which these
details are taken. It was the scow
"Pioneer," constructed in 1910 for
use on thc Welland. Canal.. Its dimensions are eighty by twenty-four,
with seven feet draft. It has been
employed chiefly, to carry stone, and
at times whole carloads of this material  have been  dropped 'upon'-���  its
Generally Related to the Length   of
Their Necks
The foot of a bird shares with the
wing the duties of locomotion. Birds
with highly developed wings have
poor feet. Thc swallow, an aerial
bird, is an example. The chimney-
swift has a tiny foot, but enormously
developed wings, and if placed on a
flat surface is unable to support itself. All aquatic and terrestrial birds
have excellent developed feet. The
loon is so thoroughly aquatic lhat it
cannot walk on land without the support of its breast and wings. The sea
snipe has a foot especially fitted for
swimming, and can be found a

The foot is generally related to the
length of the neck. The flamingo
wades out into the water, and is able
to duck its head and secure its food
with the aid of its particularly constructed neck. In securing prey the
foot also plays an important part.
The great horned owl and the duck
hawk havc enormous grasping power
in their claws. In our grouse or
partridge a horney, fringe-like growth
appears on the toes late in the fall,
serving as a sort of snow shoe during
the winter, by which the bird is enabled to walk on the surface of the
snow. This growth is shed in the
spring.

The Sultan's Consolation
"Shining Stone"  Still Remains  Brilliant
Amid the many menacing perils
that threaten his thorny throne- the

contemplating the "Shining Stone"
in the Mosque of St. Sophia. This
is a slab of translucent marble,
brought from Persia, which has been
fixed to the western side of the gallery. It emits rays of dazzling brilliancy during periods of Turkish prosperity or of religious triumphs for
Islam, but becomes black and opaque,
however cloudless the skies, whenever some calamity is about to befall
the Ottoman fai.th or empire. It has

who arc placed. in thc various forts

British typewriter manufacturers can
do no more than supply the government,, and importations from America
and from Germany arc alike, cut off,
il for different reasons. Since thc machine is largely an American product,
and a large number of. those sold in
England have been .made by American concerns, on either side of thc
water, it is clear that, thc shortage
must-be. verv. serious.. A correspondent of the New York Tribune says
that "machines which .; ordinarily
entitled to old age pensions are being collected and overhauled, injected with a vitalizing sertiin and sold
for more than the price they brought
iu their prime." The kind,of work
they do and'the effect upon their users-may be' left to ihe imagination.

Should not 'Americans -lake, warning

The enormous'hulk of typewritten

upon a tender, aching corn, instantly

This drug dries at once and simply
shrivels up the corn or callus without even irritating the surrounding

Mother Goose
Was
Lived    in
Furnace Dust Gives i otash
a Real Person and
Boston
Perhaps the most famous woman
that ever lived was Mother Goose.
Other women, particularly a few
bad ones, have enjoyed celebrity,
but she achieved immortality.
She is called Mother Goose because that was her name. For she
was a real person, and du it in tho
city of Boston. She lived in a little
one-story house with a roof that
sloped almost down to the ground���
just such a house as one might expect Mother Goose to occupy���not
far from the Common.
Thc house vanished long ago, but
thc church in which she was accustomed regularly to worship still
stands. It is thc famous Old South
Church.
Her maiden name was Elizabeth
Foster. In fact, she was an old maid,
twenty-eight years of age���quite elderly for an unmarried woman in
those days���when, in 1665, she met
and became the wife of Isaac Goose.,
She had children and grandchildren, and it was for the latter that she
wrote her rhymes, which were first
published by Thomas Fleet, her son-
in-law-, in Boston, in 1716.
Mother Goose died in 1757, aged
ninety-two.

Each Month    That    Passes    Makes
England Independent of German Material
_ The board of trade Journal publishes a remarkable article on the
British supplies of potash, showing
the important progress which has
been made during mc war in the production of potaslt in Great Britain.
One of the most startling sources
of thc new supply is from blast furnace dust, from which potash is obtained by a cheap and simple process consisting primarily in an addition of a small proportion of common salt to. the charge of the furnace, which releases the potash present in the ore and causes it to bc
volatized with thc emerging gases as
potassium chloride.
As a result of experiments on a
large scale it was estimated that it
would bc possible to recover 50,000
tons of potash salts per annum from
blast furnace dust alone, enough
practically to meet thc needs of the
country.
A factory already has been erected at Oldbury, near Birmingham, designed to produce 400 to 500 tons of
potassium chloride weekly from
blast furnace dust and a conversion
factory is to be added where .chloride, not needed for agriculture, may
be converted into other refined potash salts. Other factories are in
contemplation, and it is expected to
obtain especially large quantities of
potash from the important Cleveland iron district.
In view of the ncw importance
thus given to blast furnace dust,
dealings' in this raw material were
placed in August, 1917, under government control, which is working
very smoothly.
Large quantities of potash can
similarly bc collected from funics
and dust from cement kilns, and
potash now is being sold by many
cement manufacturers wdio hitherto
had no idea that such valuable material could bc so easily collected.
While these promise to bc the
greatest sources of potash the article
also describes other sources the development of which is not being
neglected.   The article concludes:
"Each month that passes renders
Great Britain more independent of
German potash and more able to
disregard Germany's . continued
threat of holding other nations to a
ransom for potash. In her attempt
to starve her enemies by withholding
potash manners it would be as difficult for Germany to achieve success
as it was in her recent attempts to
Starve out Great Britain by U-boat
tactics."

No Food to Waste
Food Economies are Still Necessary
At Present Time
Thc fact that the restrictions on
the usc of bacon and other pork products have been removed for the
time being does not mean that food
economies are no longer necessary.
The facts arc that there is not an
ounce of food too much in the world
and that every man, woman and child
is under the sternest necessity of
saving whatever he or she can of
those foods most needed overseas.
Any temporary relaxation of the restrictions, such as in the case of pork,
must not be construed as notice to
the public that extravagance in . any
food is again endurable.

Aged Prelate Is One of the Heroes

Neither ecclesiastical nor lay camouflage neither civil nor military
twaddle, can dim the eye or influence
thc judgment of Cardinal. Mercicr of
Belgium. He has lived throughout
the horror of it all, and what he has
seen he is not afraid to tell. Because
of his loyalty to truth and thc cause
of humanity this aged prelate will
ever stand forth as one of the heroes
of the war. This is wdiat he says
of the work of the Germans in his
country:
"Wc can neither number our dead
nor compute the measure of our
ruins. Families hitherto living at
case arc now in bitter want. All
commerce is at an end. All careers
ruined. Industry is at a standstill.
Thousands upon thousands of workmen without employment. Working

Co.d Feet in Germany
Fatherland Has No Leather or Substitute
Thc citizens of Berlin have been
officially warned that they must prepare to do without boots. The summer has passed its zenith. The chill
autumn days will soon be with us.
Winter itself is not far off. and Berlin in winter is a bleak and chilly
city. To wander along Untcr den
Linden bootless on a real North German cold day will be more than an
uncomfortable experience. The open
confession that the fatherland has no
leather and no leather substitutes is
proof sufficient of thc effective resuh
of the blockade, and, too, of thc fact
that, unless she can secure overseas
supplies, Germany will be industrially
helpless after the war. There never
was a time when England was so
well shod as today. Here is a dramatic demonstration of thc meaning
of sea power.
Only Fifteen Feet in Width
Midget Airplane Is  Similar to    Big
Albatross
The smallest Briiish airplanes now
being manufactured are actually of
less space than the largest birds. Tltc
great albatross has been known to
measure nearly 18 feet from wing tip
to wing tip. A certain type of midget airplane recently exhibited in
London is only 15 feet in width.
"These are the machines which wc
may expect to see after the war carrying our mails," declared Maj. Orde
Lees of the British Aviation service, "and they will be almost as universal as the smart automobile mail
vans of pre-war times. These small
machines will bc largely used by thc
postal authorities, on account of the
existing limitations of storage and
starting grounds in our great cities.
Postal aerodromes, like railway stations, must be near the post offices,
at least in the initial stages of the
development.
"Later thc problem may bc solved
by the usc of pneumatic tube communication between the central post-
offices and the postal aerodromes. In
delivering letters to distances of 250
miles or more, thc big types of air
plane will be used, but for local
work small machines are likely to
bc much  more serviceable.
"Dropping the mail bags by parachute will be given a good trial, and
this, if successful, will be of great
assistance. Bags may also bc picked

which mail bags arc now caught by

It's the Other Way Now-a-Days
It seems strange to us to think of
a man's being flogged for kissing his

Puritanism, in Massachusetts a sea-
captain, just returned from a long

for kissing his wife in the street,
where she had comc to meet him,
the statute law declaring legal such
a punishment for this open demonstration of affection.

Refuse To Leave Belgium
Birds Return Each Year to Old
^. Haunts
For four seasons now the migrating birds, accustomed to breed in
Belgium and Northern France, have
returned to find the once peaceful
country noisy with hideous war, the
air once vocal with their sweet songs
filled with thc thunder and smoke of
cannon.
Undiscouraged, however, they persist in coming back to the old haunts.
Hopefully their cheerful songs still
ring out over the wastes of war. A
member of a Canadian Highland
regiment wrote home:
"As morning was dawning the colonel led us back to thc trench we had
captured. We began to make ourselves more secure by digging deeper
and building the parapet in front. As
morning broke the birds in the woods
beyond broke into happy song,
"1 stood up in the trench and looked across to the battlefield of thc
night before. What a night! The
bodies of Highlanders and Germans
were lying all around, having paid
the price of war. What a contrast.
On one side peace and tranquility, on'
the other bloodshed and death!"
Another soldier wrote: .   :
"Wc have- a- favorite blackbird that
sits up in a tree above us ajid^ answers when the men whistle to it, no
matter how heavy the firing may bc.
I was amused to watch two old mag-
pics the other day. Thcy wanted to

So many people, both men and women, suffer from skin troubles, such
as eczema, blotches, pimples and irritation that a word of advice is necessary. It is a great mistake for
such sufferers and those with bad
complexions to smear themselves
with greasy ointments. Often thcy
could not do anything worse, for the
grease clogs the pores of the troubled
skin and their condition actually becomes worse.
When there are pimples or eruptions, or an irritating or itching rash,
a soothing boracic solution may help
to allay the irritation, but of course
that does net cure the trouble. Skin
complaints come from au impure condition of the blood and will persist
until the blood is thoroughly purified.
It is well known that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have effected the best results in many forms of skin disorders and blemishes. This is due to
the fact that these pills make new,
rich blood, and that this new blood
attacks the impurities' that give rise
to skin troubles and disperses them;
so that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure
skin disorders from within thc system���the only sure way.
It should be added that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have a beneficial effect upon the general health. Thcy
increase the appetite and energy and
cure diseases that arise from impure
blood.
You can get these pills through
any medicine dealer or by mail at
50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50

Food in Italy and France
Meats   are   Scarce   and Prices  Extremely High
As bread and wheat products
formed 52 per cent, of .the French
diet before the war, it has been a
hardship to substitute other foods
there. That is partly due to the fact
that home baking is not customary
and has not been for generations.
Moreover the strain of years.of war
has made the people less adaptable
to substitutes, even when they arc
comparatively easy to obtain. Until
recently there : were"'three meatless
days, a week, but conditions have
been improved there.through conservation on this side al -the Atlantic,
so that tlic restrictions have: been
removed..
Inr Italy the ministry of food has
requisitioned the 1918 crops of
wheat, barley and rye. The grain
shortage has worked great hardship'' to Italy, because of the large
part that bread and. macaroni formerly played in the diet. Now macaroni is made with 45 per cent rice,
and .the entire, cereal .consumption
of the nation has been reduced by
one-fourth.
Large stores of grain were taken
from Ttah' during the German advance in the fall. In January there
was a time 'when only one -week's
supply of food was on hand. But
imports of grain have increased.

The submarine, with whieh wc arc
now so much concerned, is the result of long-continued research. It is
a far cry from Buslincll's and Fulton's early efforts of the beginning
of last century to thc wonderful submarines of the present day, and many
were the steps from [he crude at-
tcrfipts of those early days lo the
successes of today and many brilliant minds were at work upon thc
problem in the principal maritime
countries of the world. Nordenfeldt

The steam turbine���to Sir Charles
Parson's perserverancc and tenacity
of purpose in carrying on methodical
scientific research is due thc practical and commercial success of the
steam turbine. In friendly competition with him De Laval, Rateau and
Curtis havc conducted research with
the impulse turbine, and it is only by
such means that they have attained
success. Later on Sir Charles Parsons developed the idea of reducing
the rate of revolutions of screw propellers to obtain high efficiency in
them without reducing the rate of
thc turbine, by connecting the
driver, to the driven with toothed
wheel gearing. The higher rate of
revolution of the turbine now possible with such an arrangement has
much_ improved its efficiency, so that
the little loss <\uc to the modern
gearing has been much more than
made up by the gain in general efficiency of the system.
By continued research other engineers havc made the further improvement of double gearing, whereby
with a rate of revolution of screw as
low as that obtaining in the large cargo steamer, the turbine itself may bc
run.at as much as.4,000 r.p.rn.

Keeping" Biennial I
Vegetables for Seed
Must Be Stored   First Winter   and
Replanted in Spring
By the term "bi-enniai" vegetables
is meant one which takes two seasons to produce seed, writes thc Dominion horticulturist in a leaflet giving" advice on the "Selection and
Wintering of Biennial Vegetables for
Seed," which can be had free from
the Publications Branch, Department
of Agriculture, Ottawa. The vegetables must be stored over the first
winter and replanted for seed production thc following spring. Some
well-known A-cgetabIes of this class
are beets, cabbage, carrots, celery,
parsnips, salsify and turnips. Seed
from these can easily be grown in
Canada if the vegetables to be -so
used are kept in good condition over thc winter. Unless a rigid selection is made, each ycar, of specimens
which'are true to type, it will not be
long before a larger proportion of
the crop will be not true to type;
hence great care should be taken lo
select well-shaped, medium-sized
roots, typical of the variety, of beets,
i carrots, parsnips, salsify and turnip?,
firm-hcadcd cabbage true to type,
firm stalked and di��casc-resistant
plants of celery, and firm, shapely
onion bulbs, lf this is done and varieties arc kept far enough from others s o that they will not cross the
crop, Canadian grown seed should
compare favorably with imported
seed in regard to_ purity, as it docs
in other characteristics.
The methods of wintering vegetables for seed will vary in different
parts of Canada, but in most places
it will be necessary to give them some
protection. When possible, it is best
to store them in a frost-proof cellar. But, if necessary, the vegetables may bc stored outside, both in
small and in large quantities, except
in the case of onions, which must be
kept dry, and stored in a cool place
where there is little or no frost.

War Is Worst Kind of Bad Business
For the Kaiser
One of the sayings of the kaiser
that found much favor with his deluded people was this: "Manufacturing pays 5 per cent.; international
trade, 15 per cent., but war pays 1,-
000 per cent,"
He was speaking; of previous wars
when he said that, and holding out
hopes concerning this. one.
In former wars against Austria,
Denmark, and France, the Prussian
militarists got results which enabled
them to talk to business men about
war as ihe biggest of all business
There were provinces
bccuian<^ seaports, rivers, canals, mines
and ore deposits to be annexed; there
were rich territories to be looted and
great war indemnities to be levied.
Thc whole thing was so simple that
even the stupidest German could
understand it. War paid against the
Danes, Austrians, and French, and it
was but necessary to be ready, strong
and ruthless, and on a much larger
scale it-could bc made to pay enormously.    So at it thcy. went.
It isn't going to pay this time.
That is one thing that the world
means to make sure of���that this
war does not pay Prussia and German)-, that it has not been good
business, but bad, disastrous business, and a class of undertaking never again to be thought of as 'a means
of 'profit- and' advantage. The Prussian big business method has got to
be discredited in Prussia.
Jt is not enough, therefore, fof
the Huns to,get out of France and
vacate and restore Belgium. They
cannot be allowed to "make war
pay" at the expense of Russia. They

Slocan Mines
The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting and Power company has
produced 12,814.946 tons of ore
from its Phoenix mines since the
beginning cf production 20 years
ago, according to an official report
of the company. From tbis ore
its smelter ac Grand Ferks, B.C.,
produced 636,291 ounces of gold,
4,330,345 ounces of silver and 271,-
079,000 pounds of copper, haviDg
an approximate value of $55,550,-
000. The capacity of the smelter
was increased until it reached 4500
tons daily, then becoming the
largest copper smelter in the British empire, a distinction it retains.
In the mining and treating of
the Phoenix ores the company paid
$25,000,000 in wages and $20,000,-
000 for supplies and freight, leaving a profit of 3 per cent for its
stockholders.
There remainB in the Phoenix
mines 3,274,996 tons of ore, averaging .85 per cent, copper and 75
cents a ton in gold and silver.
Tbe cost of producing and marketing copper from the Phoenix-
Grand Forks properties waH 22i
cents a pound when the United
States government price was fixed
at 23i cents, leaving a margin of a
cent a pound. An increase of 2i
cents in she price, now 26 cents,
has been more than absorbed by
the increased railway freight rates
on ore' matte power and labor
costs. The company, it is stated,
will operate the mines and smelter
so long as it is possible to make
both ends meet.

No one can tell you whether
there will be a shrinkage or an enlargement of the content of faith as
a result of the war, but there are
certain to be many sharp reactions
against ecclesiasticism. No foible

is to reshape the race is being played out, such things, Presbyterian-
ism Methodism, Episcopalianism,

Some faint realization of the

A crosscut that was started
about a year ago to run from the
Bell mine to the Sunset lead is being continued and when completed
should open up some good ore.
After a two weeks' shutdown because of the breaking of the drive
cable connecting the turnine and
the concentrator, Cork-Province
resumed full blast again the first
part of the week. A new section
of cable was brought in from the
coast by express and a man was
brought over from Silverton to do
the splicing.
Charles F. Caldwell came down
on Monday night from the Utica
mine and reports that property to
be looking very satisfactory indeed, as a result of the work that
had been done in the upper workings. Good ore in considerable
quantities is being found wherever
anything is being done, he states
and the mine is being pnt into
phape to operate on a bigger scale.
He is fortunate in. having au unusually good crew of men.
A new crosscut is being scarted
this week on the Silver Bell mine.
This work is undertaken to get in
a hundred feet below the lowest of
the levels hitherto developed. Reports from the Silver Bell are of a
most satisfactory nature, indicating
that the ore showings are proving
quite remarkable as depth has
been attained. Native and wire
silver is reported to be plentifully
scattered throDghout the ore.
The Kaslo concentrating works
resumed work again on Monday,
after getting in a new casting for
the ball mill to replace the one that
broke two or three weeks ago. The
casting was made by the Nelson
Iron Works and it is stated that it
was an unusually good piece of
work, the numerous holes being
drilled in the outer rim with a precision that was most'. praiseworthy.
It is estimated that three eight-
car trains of Whitewater tailings
per week will be treated when the
plant gets settled down to running
good.
There has never before been such
evidence of mining activity in the
South Fork section as there
ippearjjto be at the present time.
The C^k-Province is going again,
after thfe cable break of two weeks
ago b#ihg repaired. Further up
thjngs are shaping well with regard to the Gibson, which is undoubtedly one of the coining big
producers of the silver-lead belt;
good results are following develop-
mehfe'at the Silver Bell and about
half a dozen men are employed at
the Index. All of these properties appear to be heading for sne-
ce?s, and success, in their case
means not only a large payroll adjacent to Kaslo, but the develop-
menE of numerous other promising
properties in the same section.���

Ife is contrary to the Hague convention to use poison gas in war,
yet the Geamans began its use in
1916 at Ypres and because of its
unexpectedness came very near
wining the war with it. Had it
uat been for the matchless courage
of the Canadians the Germans
would have marched unopposed
through the gap where the gassed
soldiers lay dead to the English
channel. French-Canadian troops
were rushed into the gap and held
it.
A Canadian chemiBfe, Nasmith,

gas as chlorine and advised hyposulphite of soda and masks as a
