What A Coal Miner Did
When the war began in 1914 a
man named Godfrey Jones, a coal
miner in Wales, enlisted as a
private. He soon became a noncommissioned officer and a little
later earned a commission. At
Saloniki he showed such conspicuous conrage that he was
awarded the distinguished order
service. The other day Col. Jones,
still serving with hiB countrymen and in command of Welsh
soldiers, was promoted to the rank
of''brigadier general. The coal
in iner now outranks the heir to the
British throne.

A valuable claim is being worked
at Usk, by the Kifcselas Mountain
Copper Co. The ore is solid bor-
nite, containing copper, gold and
silver. In fehe six veins fehere ia

More than 500 feet of tnnnel have
been driven, and a shipment has
recently been made to the Tacoma
smelter.
Operations on a large scale are
contemplated shortly on the big
Missouri mine, reported to be one
of the largest mineral showings in
British Columbia, and which has',
been acquired by Sir Donald Mau n
for the second time. It was located
by Dan and Andy Lindeborg
some years before the Portland
Canal boom. Sir Donald first took
the property under an option in
1910, but did not take it up and
the property reverted to the Linde-
borgs, who have held it since.
While several mining engineers
placed feheir approval upon it, the
ore is said to be pf such low grade
that as a mining proposition only
a company capable of working ife
on an extensive scale can handle ifc.
It is situated just beyond Nonarae
Lake and comprises sixteen full
claims and four fractions. The
main mineralization and development is on one claim and the assays
are in iron, zinc, lead and copper.
The developments consists of a
series of open-cuts paralleling fehe
general trend of the ore zone and
proves the ore to extend for a
widfehdflOOO feet on one claim.
The average assays t rbin many
samples taken will run to fehe ton
60c in gold, SI.05 in silver, 2.10
p;C lead, 0.5:> p. c. copper, 5 p.e.
^inc. On another claim a thirty-
foot tnnnel has been driven into
the ore body which looks hotter
than where exposed by open cutting. It is understood that Sir
Donald intends to put diamond
drills at work as soon as possible
with a view of determining the
depth of the ore bodies. While
the mine is located some 12 miles
from tidewater it is, nevertheless,
close to rail transportation, for in
1910, Sir Donald, as one of his personal enterprises, built a 14-mile
standard-guage railway from Stewart up Bear River Talley, and also
builtone of the most substantial
wharves in the northern part of
theprovince. x,.x

Can You See Defeat Coming?
Army's Reply to Austrian Peace Proposals���a Grin
A special correspondent with the
Britisii armies in France cables���
When -Austria's peace proposal became known hero, 1 asked a high officer in a position to know what the
sentiment was throughout the army
in Lis opinion.    Hc grinned.
1  asked  a  general.     He  grinned.
I asked a privite.    He  grinned.
Each said   hat Austria's move was
German-inspired,    tlie private putting
it:     "J  don't     know anything about
Austria,  but  it's  easy   to  sec  the   fi:c
Germany's in  on  this    front.      She's i
whipped, and ���she's  squeaking."
The general's view was slightly
j different. "We can't say yet tliat Ger-
' niany is beaten," he said, "but she
lean see defeat coining'. This is a military move. Germany's hopes, so far
las the British are concerned, is to
| prevent being compelled to evacuate
jtiic strom;' Hindenburg defences this
j fall.
"Lhe wants to keep us in thc barren, unsheltered ground this sidc of
the lire all winter. _Ma\be she has
something to say worth listening to,
but if we agree to listen wc mustn't
stop  lighting in  the meantime."
Ancient Czecho-Slovaks
Fifth    Century
Flourished    in
the
B. C.
Thc Czechs are an ancient race.
They were flourishing in Bohemia
away back in tne fifth century before Christ and thcy have always
been noted for their progressive
spirit, for their longings in thc direction of liberalism and democracy,
and above all for their industrial
and commercial enterprise, thanks to
which thcy havc been for thc past
40U ycars the economic backbone of
thc Hapsburg monarchy,
Thcy were independent, and therefore unfettered, until they foolishly
elected Emperor Ferdinand of Austria as their ruler in 1520, not only
because hc was married to the
daughter and heiress of the last king
of the dynasty of St. Wenceslaus,
but also because he solemnly pledged
himself to respect their national
rights and liberties. Needless to add |
that Ferdinand 1 failed to keep his
promises. This is a peculiarity of thc
house of Hapsburg, whicli is at last
to bring ruin upon  their empire.

Why Animals Feel Fear
Only Felt by Animals Which Depend
for Self-defence in Flight
Fear is experienced only by animals which depend for self-defense
and species preservation upon flight,
according to Dr. George \V. Crile.
Thc skunk, for example, whose chief
mcans of protection is its odor; the
porcupine, defended by its quills;
thc snake, which repels its enemies
by its ^r-iioin; thc turtle, which is
securely encased in its shell; the lion
and elephant, secure in their superior
strength���these all exhibit little if
any fear reaction.
On thc other hand, thc rabbit, thc
bird, the deer, thc horse, thc antelope, thc monkey, and man���these are
the animals whieh pre-eminently exhibit fear and an irrcspressibie desire to flee from danger.
Fear is the mental part of the reaction by which certain types of animals preserve themselves, and it is
mostTlntercsting in man, who has
recently changed from a fleeing animal into a lighting one, and who undergoes often agonizing inner struggles between the newly acquired instinct to light and the age old instinct to run away.
_ Corns arc caused by the pressure of
tight boots, but no one need be troubled  with  them   long when   so  simple

Empire Guard of Six-footers
Magnificent Sight Witnessed by Britain's  King
The King went to a south coast
town recently to sec the royal air
force brigade in training. Prince Albert, who is a captain in command
of one of the squadrons, took part in
a march past.
At the railway station a guard of
honor was posted, consisting of men
of 6 foot and over, from all parts of
thc empire.
On the sunny slope of a hill in thc
rear of thc parade ground was a huge
khaki flag, with thc letters "R.A. F."
formed by cadets. At a given signal
they discarded their greatcoats, disclosing the red, yellow, and light
blue which make up thc R.A.F, colors. Simultaneously thc men commenced singing thc national anthem.
At a further signal the human flag,
and monogram retired over thc hill,
the cadets keeping perfect formation.
Many thousands of civilian sightseers turned out to sec thc king, who
was   given   a   rousing  welcome.

Mushrooms    Assist    Britain's
Problem
There are more than a thousand
varieties of fungi or toadstools in the
United Kingdom, and about a hundred of these are fit for human food,
1 Thc common mushroom of thc fields
and cultivated beds is the only welJ-
knowu fungus cater in that country.
Mushrooms cannot bc classed as
highly nutritious food, but they are
valuable for seasoning, and sauces,
and contain some of thc constituents
of ordinary garden vegetables. The
common muslirocm has about 3 per
cent, of proteid, a small quantity of
carbohydrates, some cellulose, and
the merest trace of fat. This excellent fungus has been called "thc poor
man's beefsteak."
Mushrooms rank high as flavoring
substances in the finest French cookery, and there is no reason why they
should not bc more generally used
in  England.
In warm, damp weather mushrooms often appear in strange places.
They may be found on uncultivated
moors and heaths, in hedgerows, and
on lawns during a wet summer. But
the likeliest hunting grounds arc old
permanent pastures. The crop is good
this year, and is assiduously being
gathered.
Belgium's Anxiety
Thc attitude of the Germans in
many parts of Belgium is creating a
feeling almost of panic among thc
civil population. The enemy is apparently making preparations against
the hour of departure and no attempt is being made to conceal his
evil designs. Already much property
is being ruined. The fear is widely
entertained that the enemy will take
a hideous revenge on the people who

New Sty^e of Blackmail
Plan  Was to Sell Antidote for Imaginary Germ
Charged with an attempt to blackmail the family of J. P. Morgan, to
the amount of $20,000, by usc of the
mails, J. B. Thorn, fifty years old,
janitor at a local newspaper building
at Lansing, Mich., was arrested by
government authorities after an investigation extending over a period
of more than fifteen months.
Acocrding to officers, thc first of
the series of letters, addressed to
Mrs. Jane Nichols, daughter of Mr.
Morgan, at her home, Glencovc, L.I.,
was received by her eighteen months
ago. In it thc writer-purported to be
representing a gang in such close
touch with the Morgan family that
it had been able to inoculate the entire family with a germ which
would cause death within three
years. The letter went so far as to
assert that the death of J. P. Morgan, Sr.*, several ycars ago, had been
caused by this inoculation.
The plan, it was said, was lo sell

Most Perfect of Its Size Yet Manufactured
The mirror for the Victoria, B. C,

It was received on this side, a week
or two before the war broke out,
from Belgium. The work of grinding and polishing it consumed the
time between August, 1914, and September, 1915.
The "figuring," or accurate polishing process, was begun in the autumn of 1916, and the final test was
made late last ye;.r.
It is supposed to bc the most perfect mirror- of its size yet made, being the first which was poured from
a single pot into the mould, which
prevented distinct layers, as found in
other mirrors.
It is six feet in diameter, weighs,
finished, 4,340 pounds, and its 72-
inch surface is optically correct. This
means that it is within one four hundred-thousandths of an inch of the
theoretical figure, and it will bring

The trcncli newspaper tells of the
care with which these birds are handled. They live in coops that look like
high set, portable corn cribs. Thc
problem in wartime is that of accustoming a homing bird to a migrator}-
coop.. The war pigeons arc all fed
and sheltered in the same coop, and
the coop is-never left more than a
few monlhs in one pla.ee. Jt. is constantly shifted.lest the birds become
too much at home in one place. Care

Wheat and World Safety
Seven     Hundred     Million    Bushels
Needed as Reserve for "Carry
: Over"
The New York Commercial point*
out that for 20 "years the world has
been on the edge of a wheat famine.
Only those who have studied_ grain
trade statistics haye realized it, but
the surplus carriedNjver from one
crop year to another has been dwindling, and for a long time has been in-.
sufficient to. protect _ consumers
against a serious crop failure.
"A reserve of wheat must be accumulated on this continent at any
cost," says thc newspaper. "Corn
will not take the place of wheat as
a reserve, because corn docs not keep
well, and cornmeal and cornflour do
not stand shipment overseas in warm
weather.
"England is producing about 70
per cent, of her own domestic requirements this year, but France and
Italy are raising less food than they
did before thc war. Some slight increases may bc obtained from Spain
-and South America, but not enough
to ofset the decreases in France and
Italy. Canada and the United States
must produce thc wheat and' most of
thc other foods!affs, and thcy are doing it by a perilously narrow margin.
"We must try to save some of this
year's wheat as a reserve to protect
us from a' short crop next year, and
wc must add to thc acreage of winter*
wheat planted this ycar. If wc gain
access to the wheat in the southern
hemisphere in the course of the next
ycar it will not be sufficient for the
reserve which the world should have.
This is no time to consume wheat
lavishly. We arc not out of the
wood,.and.the world.will not be safe
until it accumulates a surplus of - at
least 700,000,000 bushels of wheat to
.carry, oyer.from year to year."

Will He Get the Cow ?
Price of Jersey Has Gone Up Fifty
Ships
"How inany ships arc you going
to get into the water this year?" Mr.
Charles M. Schwab asked Admiral
Bowles at the Hog Island yards, as
reported in The World's Work. "Our
program calls for thirty-one, but wc
arc going lo try for forty-eight," was
thc reply. "Make it fifty and I'll sec
that you get the best Jersey cow in
America," said. Mr. Schwab. Admiral
Bowles has a dairy farm and Mr.
Schwab knew it. "I'm going to begin picking out that cow right
away," retorted the admrial, "and
when I get her I'll lead her through
thc yards here so all the boys can
sec  her."
Practise of Cutting Down of Foot to
Fit Boot Unwise
Some returned soldiers with leg
amputations, who have been issued
artificial legs by the department of
soldiers' civil rc-establisliment, have
undertaken to cut down the wooden
foot so.that it will fit into a fashionably pointed boct. The officials of
the orthopedic and surgical appliances
branch of the Canadian department
wish to call the attention of the veterans to the fact that this practice is
unwise. A man who has worn army j
boots for some time cannot expect
his feet to conform to the narrow
pointed last now fashionable. This is
especially true in the case of a man
with a leg amputation, for during the
months that he is waiting for his
stump to heal sufficiently for thc
wearing of an artificial leg, his remaining good foot carried an additional burden so great that it is often
necessary to prepare special orthopedic boots for this foot. In any
case the strain upon it is so much
greater than usual that, a narrow last
is impractical. Thc department at
Ottawa announces that it will not be
responsible for adjustments to artificial limbs that have been mutilated in
this way.
Faultless in Preparation.���Unlike
any other stomach regulator, Parmelce's Vegetable Pills arc the result of
long study of vegetable compounds
calculated to stimulate thc stomachic
functions and maintain them at thc
normal condition. Years of use have
proved their faultless character and
established their excellent reputation.
And this reputation thcy have maintained for ycars and will continue to
maintain, for these pills must always
stand at the head of the list of standard preparations.

Must Keep On Going
Allies Must Force Their Way   Into
Germany
Sounding a keynote of "no nego-
, tiation without occupation" James
W. Gerard, former United States ambassador to Germany, declared there
must be no thought of peace until
troops of the entente have forced
their way into German territory. Air.
Gerard was speaking for the fourth
Liberty loan at the San Francisco
commercial club.
"There must be no negotiation
without -occupation," he said.
"The United States and her allies
must force their way well into enemy
territory despite all attempts at
peace and must keep on going until
Germany bows to their will.-
"Wc must not allow Germany to
increase her manpower. It_ would
bc easy for her to Germanize the
peoples df Esthonia, Livonia, and Po-
iand. Fifteen per cent, of the population in the Baltic provinces is made
up of Germans who exercise a complete influence over the ignorant
population."

Care of the Eyes
Avoid Unnecessary Strain Is    First
Rule
The person who wishes to keep
young and useful should take excellent care of the eyes. Eye strain, besides other ill-effects, causes wrinkles.
The first rule in the care of the
ej'e is to avoid straining it unnecessarily. This means that thc eyes
should be closed for a few seconds
now and then when employed on
work requiring great concentration.
It mcans also that the eyes should
never be strained by trying to read
in a poor light or one that is badly
placed. It means also that as soon
as an eye trouble is suspected a
good oculist should be consulted.
Besides all this, the C3res should
be kept constantly clean. In the
morning when you get up thc eyes
should bc washed out with an eye-
cup and a solution of boric acid.
This is nothing more or less than
a small teaspoonful of borie acid
powder dissolved in a pint of previously -boiled water���the boiling
being necessary to insure the purity
of the water. A bottle of this solution will last several weeks. This
mild antiseptic will wash any dust
from the eyes or lashes, or will remove the film often present after
a night's sleep, and will leave the
eyes feeling clear and refreshed.

Chance for Saving Sugar
Save Tthc'waste.
12,000,000 cups of tea, coffee
cocoa are used daily in Canada,
If even a average of half a
spoonful of sugar per cup is left undissolved at the bottom of cups of
these beverages the waste would be
120,000 lbs. of-sugar daily!
Use no more sugar than you need
and stir your beverage until thc
sugar is entirely dissolved.
It"is estimated that about one-third
of all sugars used in the homes is
used in tea and coffee. Think it over
���how is it in your home? Is there
a chance for saving?
Buying or Contracting   for  Produce
Without License Contrary
to Food Regulations
Thc attention of the Canada food
board has been called to the practice
frequently adopted by licensed dealers in apples, turnips, potatoes and
other fruits nnd vegetables, of having
men living in different parts of the
country acting as tlicir agents, buying or contracting such produce, superintending the loading of same on
cars ready for shipment, and receiving a commission from said dealers
for such work.
All such agents operating in the
manner mentioned, without lirst having secured a license from thc board,
are doing so contrary to thc order
date 13th day of December, 1917,
wherein it states:
"That bn and after the 1st day of
February, 1918, no person shall deal
wholesale in fresh fruits or fresh
vegetables, without first having obtained a license from the food controller," and in violating such order
arc guilty of an offence, and subject
to a penalty not to exceed $1,000 and
not less than $100.     .

Quadruped   Was
Pest
Before the advent of thc
and the fox in Australia the
wallaby made its home anion;
cliffs bordering the Snowy
where it passes through southern
Monaro (N. S. AY.) literally in thousands. The little red-brown quadruped was then becoming a grass pest
and as his skin was then worth only
4 cents the pelt hunter didn't bother
much about him. But an interested
mutton merchant sonic ycars ago put
a premium on thc skins, and tlic
writer ancl a male started out one
winter morning with about two inches of frost on the ground and every tree powdered with hoar frost,
for the wallaby ground. The artillery consisted of two guns, one a
single muzzle-loader. (The breechloader was then a rarity on Monaro).
By noon the hunters had downed over 60 wallabies. The beasts were so
numerous in some quarters that two
wallabies occasionally fell to a single
shot. Soon after that the pelt-trader
scented profit, and thc work of decimation began. Now these cliff.; arc
silent and deserted, save for Reynard
and the eternal rabbit, which crops
the wallaby pastures close and from
this rough country will never bc exterminated. ,
Canada's Net Losses 115,806
To. AugiKt 14, 191S, thc net losses
in the overseas military forces of
Canada in England and in France totalled 115,806. officers, non-commissioned officers and men. This includes those killed in action or died
of wounds, died, missing, prisoners of
war, discharged as~tncdically unfit,
discharged to take lip other lines of
war work, and those non-commissioned officers and men given commissions in the imperial army.
It does not take into account officers and other ranks wounded in action who have rejoined their units or
arc still fit for service overseas.
Terrors of a Sugar Cane Fire
One of the greatest terrors on the
Cuban sugar plantation is cane burning. This ycar it has not been as
troublesome as it was last, as there
have been few fires. When thc fire
alarm is given everyone turns out to
fight it, and the horsemen galloping
from all directions towards the swift,
terrible flames and vast smoke clouds
make a stirring sight.. Everyone is
a fireman ou a sugar plantation, and
for refusing- to light cane burning
fires, Cuba imposes a fine of $1,000
and 20 years' imprisonment, so that
is no wonder the natives havc developed into sonic fire fighters.

'T is Jike a dream now to think of the
long, weary months I spent in nervous helplessness. Some days I
would be cheered by feeling better, but
only to slip back again, and to be more
than ever discouraged.
"I had always been very active. Had a
wide acquaintance and did much entertaining. In addition to helping in whatever was going on at the church, there
was Red Cross work to be done, and all
the time I had my little family to look
after and could not get help.
"I suppose I tried to do too much, for I
got so I could not sleep at nights and
always felt tired out in the mornings.
Then I would have headaches and did not
seem to care for my meals.
"Instead of the usual ambition and
energy I found myself putting off the
duties of the day, I got behind with the
housework, and this worried me.
"I did not think that I was sick, but
only tired. However, the time came when
I did not get up in the morning. I simply
could not. The doctor came and said,
"Nervous Prostration." It seems I had
kept on the go until the nervous system
was wrung dry of all nerve force.
"Then came the long, weary weeks, and
weeks^ dragged into months, without finding much improvement. I was completely
discouraged and almost devoid of hope. .
"But one day a friend told me of her
experience with Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
and she was so sure that this treatment
would do me good that I decided to give it
a chance.
"I need scarcely say that there were
some dark, discouraging days after
beginning the use of the Nerve Food, but
as my appetite and digestion improved
I felt that I was gradually getting back
the old-time vigor. Sleep became more
natural and refreshing. The dark days
passed and I began to take a more cheerful view of the future. Then I began to
plan what I would do when I got around
again. The house must be decorated and
the children brought home, for I had
to send them to my sister's on account of
the way their noise disturbed me.
"Now I feel that I am entirely well
again, and without hesitation give the
credit to Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. I can-
cot tell you the pleasure it gives me to be
restored,to my husband and children after
the long period of helplessness."

B. C. Supplies Best Wing Beams In

It is a long journey from British
Columbia to the battlefields of Europe���and from the stolid tree, for
centuries rooted immovably in the
ground, to the aeroplane darting,
swooping, plunging through the
clouds ��� thc very quintessence of
swiftness aud grace.
But such is the journey and Buch
the evolutuion of the great spruce
that grows iu thc western forests.
Scientists have given it the name of
Picea sitchensis. It has five other
names, thc latest of which is aeroplane spruce. The others are silver, tidewater, Sitka and giant
spruce. The full grown tree is from
one hundred and fifty to two hundred feet high and from five to fifteen feet in diameter.
Although thc trees rise to a great
Grass jilc;gilt ancj arc grcat of girth,    they
I taper almost imperceptibly. Therein
lies their fitness for the peculiar, varied and exacting demands of aeroplane construction. For the wing
beams of the aeroplane, straight
sticks of timber from sixteen feet to
thirty-five feet long are required, ancl
this tree with so little taper, to make
the grain run crosswise, supplies the
vcrv best wing beams in the world.
It is also very tough and very light
���and toughness and lightness are requisites in aeroplane timber. A cubic
foot of thc wood weights twenty-five
pounds.
Only about twenty per cent, of the
whole log is cut up, but the timber
brings thc enormous price of one
hundred and twenty-five dollars a
thousand board feet, although as late
as a year ago it sold for ordinary
commercial purposes for about fourteen dollars. Only about three hundred and fifty out of cvery twenty-
five hundred feet pass thc final
tests at the aeroplane factories.
About one hundred and twenty-five
feet are used in making the average
machine.
A recent examination of a captured German aeroplane revealed the
fact that the enemy is short of good
aeroplane material for wing beams.
With Canada and the United States
possessed of tens of thousands of
acres, covered with these grand
trees, the allies havc an advantage
that is helping them to hold the
supremacy of thc air.

Could Play Organ Better Than Trumpet
There is an amusing story told
about Sir Frederick Bridge, the famous organist of Westminster Abbey,
and of how he Mas once guilty of
making a "row" within the edifice. It
was at the time of thc coronation of
King George Y. One of thc rehearsals to take place was that of the
state trumpeters, who practiced their
fanfares within the building. During
their temporary absence Sir Frederick Bridge thought hc would see
what kind of ;i fanfare hc could produce, and, borrowing one of thc
trumpets, set about making such discordant sounds that the clerk of the
works came up and expostulated: "If
that row continues," hc said, "my
workmen threaten to go on strike,
and if thcy do the coronation will
have to be postponed." Sir Frederick
hurriedly put down thc trumpet, and
soothed the workmen by playing a
selection on the organ.

Baseball Acknowledged   Good
tary Training
Baseball "lias proved a real puzzle
to French onlookers, but the value of
the game is acknowledged, perhaps
not so much from the point of view
of sport as of military training.
French officers watching American
troops at work consider that baseball
has much to do with the facility with
which they become adepts at grenade throwing. And so now baseball,
by order, it is said, of thc-minister of
war, i.s to become part and parcel of
thc training of the-French soldier.
One French general, General Yidal,
has already secured the services of
an American champion baseball player, John Evcrs, of Chicago, to teach
his men thc rules of the game.

TIIK COW PUNCHER
Some of our readers may have
noticed an article entitled, "Liberty's Soldiers," that we published
a few weeks ago. It won first
prize in a newspaper competition
throughout the province, given by
the Victory Loan Committee of
Vancouver. We aro pleased to
win a prize near homo, instead of
having to pick them all up New
York, California and Europe.
The Victory Loan Committee of Vancouver recently offered three prizes to the
editors of B. C. for the best essays upon
the l,oau.    The following letter says:
Vancouver, Dec. ii, i9iS.
R. T. Lowery, Esq.,
Tun I/BDGE.
Dear Mr. Lowery:���The committee of
newspaper men to whom was submitted
the different stories in the competition
opeu to publishers and employees of
weekly newspapers in B.C., have recommended to ine that the first prize be
awarded to your article, "Liberty's
Soldiers".
I have much  pleasure,  therefore,   in
enclosing check for $75.00,  and tender
my congratulations to you on this contribution to the success of the campaign,
Yours truly,
JOHN NELSON,
Chairman.
Wi: have received a letter from
liu\ ert J. C. Stead of Calgary telling us that he has   written a book
that he calls "The Cow Puncher"
It poems tn be a success,  and more
than   10,000    have   already   been
sold.    The name   is   a good one,
and just suits the  author's name.
We have not read ife, but by what
other writers say, it must be a real
literary broncho buster.   We never
lived in a cow camp, bufe we know
% good deal about punchers.    They
if a frisky   bunch   as a rule, bufe
a   rule they   make   too much
;   "=e while drinking,   and are inJ
aed to eass the bartender.   This
doubt is a good   book,   and will
light thousands, especially those
Alio never saw a cow puncher try
lo break up a faro game, by shoofc-
ing   the   dealer   or   the   lookout.
~-rowever  we  are glad thafe Canaan literature  is being enriched
-omebody.    Someday  we may
Ue a book,   and call ife A Stack
T'.lues, ov how Red Paddy Broke
Bauk in Sandon.    We believe
00k like that would equal the
", in spreading around this mun-
���ns   sphere,   and probably make
- so'rich, thafe We would  want to

look afe themselves in Tom Mad-
i.l 1-it's mirror, long before ife became
i'ashionable in  Nelson to cover a
man with boquets after he is dead.
'However, this .has nothing to  do
with  Stead's new   book.     Better
read ife yourself and tell  us how
you like it.    Since we quit reading
<iimii novels we have rarely looked

Stand By The Newspapers
(Kamloops Standard-Sentinel)
The  Canadian   Food   Board has
received   $1,000,000   worth of advertising   from   the  newspapers of
British Columbia  without   paying
one   cont   except   for    furnishing
mighty poorly executed mimegraph
copy.    As far as this paper is concerned   we are through  and propose   to   start   selling   newspaper
space instead of  giving it   away.
What was doue during  the war in
the   way   of free   advertising was
done cheerfully   by   every   newspaper In fche province.    The war is
over now,    There  is not a newspaper in the province thafe was not
imposed upon to a  certain  degree
at least by the demands  made for
free  advertising,   as   well as work
and  money and service  in  many
other ways.    It is time for a lot of
editors to get new socks instead of
cutting off the worn toes and tying
them up to make them last another
month; it is time for many of them
to get a suit thafe is  nofe frayed at
the heels and decorated with a sunburst iu bhe back of the  coat; ib is
time for him to get a hat thafe looks
no longer as if ife had been   used to
carry coal up  from  the cellar.    It
is also time that the wife  who has
been helping to fold   papers,   keep
the books, look after the baby and
one or others, cook the meals with
mighty little to cook  with,   had  a
gown that she could go ofe wifeh   in
the daylight,   and  shoes  that she
will   not   have   to keep  under a
chair feo bide their poverty stricken
appearance.     The country   newspapers of Canada have made sacrifices galore.    They   have   stood
pat when other people were willing
to cry quits and let the town  go to
deminition bow-wows.   The editors
have worked two shifts "again" so
that people  would know fehat the
old burg   was   still   on  the map.
The time has come  for a change,
The war profiteers who have held 11 p
governments  might step aside and
let the newspapers get the legal rate
for. governments advertising afe least
twelve and eight, even if fcliere is
only a little of it, instead of  Berial
stories on the food question.    Both
Federal    and Provincial. governments will have an  opportunity to
show their gratitude to  the newspapers   and   do   eome   legitimate
advertising instead of  creeping  in
under the cloak of patriotism.    AH
any  newspapers  in  this  land ask
for is a square deal, and now   with
the great war  won,   with civilization assured for at least 100 years,
with  production   instead   of   destruction,     the    programme,    the
owner  of  the country  newspaper
would cotrie in  for his own.    The
town  without a newspaper   soon
ceases feo be a towu.    It is only a
hamlet and wili  soon   be a  whistling post.    Ib is tip to the governments and the people to stand   by
fehe  newspapers.    They   have   all
stood by you.
Canada's Sulphur Queen
A bid of 821,000 was made (his
week for 8100 share in ihe Union
Sulphur Company, but none was
offered. There aro only 2000
shares outstanding, although the
total authorized 6tock waB for
$400,000. Apparently an original
investment of $200,000 is now
worth from $50,000,000 to 8100,-
000,000.
The Union Sulphur Company,
which owns sulphur mines in Cal-
casien parish near Lake Charles,
La., is reputed to produce over 80
per cent, of the world's sulphur.
The chief owner of this greafe property is a Canadian girl, Frieda
Frasch, formerly of London,
Ontario. Her father was a German chemist who came to Canada
and worked successfully on the
problem of getting sulphur out of
Canadian petroleum. Eetiring
with a good income he took up the
production of sulphur in Louisana
as a fad, when all others had
failed.
f Miss Frasch, the "Sulphur
Queen" of the world, is now Mrs.
Henry Wbtton, her hu.-band being
president of the company, 'which
has its head office iu New York.
Mrs. Frasch her mother, is a Philadelphia Quakeress.
The romantic story of how Prof.
Frasch invented a mechanical process for mining this tremendous
deposit of sulphur���by pumping
hot water down one pipe and sulphur water up another���was told
some sime ago iu the Financial
Posfe. The Professor was a Saxon,
not a Prussian, and when he found
that his process gave him control
of the world's sulphur trade at
such low prices that the British
syndicate could not compete, he
went to England, said that he did
nofe want tp ruin their shareholders
and offered to make any reasonable
deal they desired for their protection.
They laughed at hiin, just as the
Kofehchilds did when Charles M.
Schwab told them of the future of
Canadian nickel in competition
with the deposits they controlled
in New Caledonia.���Financial

Beautiful suovv, from the heaven above,
Pure as an angel and fickle as love!
Oh! the snow, the beautiful show!
How   the   flakes  gather   aud   laugh as

Whirling about in its maddening fun,
It plays in its glee with everyone.
Chasing,
Laughing,
Hurrying by,
It lights.up the face and it sparkles the
eye;
And even the dogs, with a  bark and a
. bound,
Snap at the crystals that eddy around.
The town is alive, and its heart in a glow
To welcome the coming of beautiful snow.
How the wild crowd goes swaying along.
Hailing each other with humor and song!
