Taylor and Ralph Pond in charge
a splendid sheet of ice is now
available and weekly relays of the
boys will have charge of the work
necessary for its upkeep. Season
tickets are being sold at a cheaper

Oxford is again most gorgeously
justified and glorified by John Murray
Gibbon in "Drums Afar"( John Lane
Ci'.. New Vork.). Not flamboyantly
in the American fashion, but deftly,
subtly, casually. Class room work is
given but negligible mention, properly so since the Oxfordian's -4>riu-
eiple text hook is lis intercourse with
men of did'eret-t lijihringing-, circinn-
staiices, character, ideals, manners.
Civ-ford's real value lies in its social
life and. activities, and She precious
fc,- years there should be devoted to
sponi and goodfellov.ship. Al least
this is Ihe .(''.nglish view. Eccentric
Americans "dig" .nnd then capitalize
their degree at SS.000! Ful it is a
very fascinating picture of Oxford

Germans Still Squealing
Again Appeal to U. S. for Pood nnd
Easier Terms
Washington. ��� In spite, of Secretary Lansing's emphatic admonition
that such communications must not
be addressed to the United States
alone, the German government has
sent another appeal to the American
government for modification of the
armistice terms and for food. The
receipt of thc note was with the explanation that it would not be made
public, because it did not differ from
previous appeals and was in violation
of thc decision that communications
must bc addressed to all the governments associated with the United
States in the war. While it is realized that the situation in Germany is
far from good, the persistent appeals
arc regarded here as a part of propaganda by which the authorities at
Berlin iiopc to escape thc results of

Lord Weir Says International Flying
Should Bc Organized First
London. ������ T on' Weir, minister of
air, in a speech at Manchester, said
wc now havo substantial numbers of
airplanes and scap'mes able to carry
7 of a crew nd 30 passengers, without stopping, at a speed of 100 miles
pcr h-ur. Hc suggested that big
shipping and 'her transport Organizations should actively interest
themselves in the development of
commercial aviation, and, when peace
was concluded, the state should sell
its superfluous airplanes, suitable for
conversion to commercial uses, to
private firms cheaply.
His lordship said that the air
board must reorganize. Thc first essential step of the new ministry
should be to organize international
flying. This would be involved in an
international air convention. The articles of this /ere already drafted,
and were being submitted to the allies. If they -approved the convention, an international air conference:
should bc held, and hc had.'fca&pii to
aaticipatc that within the. next fouti
or five months the principal nations
would '-avc reached an agreement on
this momentous question.

Canadian Butter Helped to Maintain
Small Ration
Ottawa. ���- Right Hon. T. R. Ciync's,
food controller of Great Britain, bas
sent to Sir Robert Borden, prime
minister, a letter in which lie cypresses Great Britain's appreciation of
tlic assistance rendered by Canada
last September iu rorninandccrin;
butler for consumption oversets,
when tbe situation, was most critical.
Mr. Clyrics' letter is as follows:
"Dear Sir Robert Borden:
My attention bas been drawn to
thc action recently taken by tltc Canada food board in commandeering
butter for this country. I am titfotm-
cd by the .bullet: section of thc ministry that without the butter which.
Canada..supplies in this way, the butter ration, which, as you are aware,
is now only one ounce per he.id per
wee'k, might havc had to be discontinued for a time. Wc wcrc faced
early in September with tlie possibility of a serious shcv.tagc of supplies.
Our immediate difficulty arose tnai'n-
.Iy through lack of. freight on thc
Australasian route, which made us
almost entirely dependent for th?
time being upon North American
supplies. Jt was. in these circumstances that Ave appealed to Canada to
help us. to maintain our small ration,
10 which appeal Canada responded
by requisitioning the whole make of
ccatricry butter in certain provinces
for several weeks. Tlic requisitioning
of-.litis butter and its shipment'' to
Great Britain wcrc earned out with
remarkable expedition.
"Wc arc very jrafeful, indeed, both
to the offic'.ls who dealt will- tlie
matter.and to llic consuming population in Canada, 'for this timely assistance : t: the most critical period in
the rru.rtcr. of butter supplies which
wc havc ex; rienecd during thc war,
and I 'should lie glad if you would
kindly convey to tbe Canadian people
au expression of our-appreciation"' ol
the sacrifice made by them on-<>nr behalf in onr time of need.
Yours very truly,

Loyal To Britain
Editor Says India Prefers to Remain!
Within the Empire
Ncw York. ��� That thc people of
India have determined to remain under the sovereignty of the British
empire was the declaration made by
Kustom Rustomjee, formerly editor
of the Oriental Review, of Bombay,
India, ia an address at the twenty-
third street branch of the Y.M.C.A.,
in which he attacked Oswald Garrison Villard, editor of the Nation, for
having advocated the immediate application of the principle of self-determination in thc government of India at a recent dinner of the India
Home Rule League of America.
"I do not know how much time
Mr. Villard has spent iu my country,
or how deeply hc has delved in the
lore of the ancient and modern history of India," said Air. Rustomjee.
"I do, however, know that hc wrote
a book entitled 'Germany Embattled,'
in which he praised the greatest
criminal the world has produced.
"Thc principle of self-determination is a fascinating ideal, but like
all other ideals, it is capable of various interpretations and limitations.
If self-determination mcans the opin-j
ion of the people of thc country who|
are capable of giving their judgment
of lhe method of government, then
I say that we in India havc sclf-dc-
theitcrmincd to remain under the rule of
Great Britain.
"For if we had not sc self-determined when thc war broke out and
when India was denuded of all British troops, the people would at least
have tried to shake off the so-called
yoke of Great Britain," he continued,
"but instead of aggravating thc military situation ef England and trying
to renounce our allegiance to thc
British crown, w-e wcrc the first in
thc field to offer our men and our
money iu defence of the British empire."

Playing Traitor to Bohemia
Austrians Try to Deceive Peace Conference by Lies
Washington. ��� Charles Pcrger, diplomatic representative here of Bohemia, made public a statement from
the government, charging that at lhe
very moment Vienna was begging for
and receiving coal from Bohemia, the
information given was furnishing
arms to hostile enemies.
"The accusation that we failed to
furnish Vienna with coal is designed
to compromise us in thc eyes of lhc
entente," says the statement, "but the
government making thc charge is also urging the Germans to occupy thc
coal mines at Dux and Teblitz, in
order to prevent us from using the
mines and to create difficulties. The
German propaganda against us is thc
familiar one of falsehood.
"The Magyar attitude docs not differ from that of the Germans. In

History of Greenwood
Twent-two years ago in 1S96,
Colonel John "Weir, F. L. Uuder-
wcofi nnd James F. Tichenor, all
ot iN'ew York, associated theni-
s(.d\ es under the title of The Boun-
\Xiiy Mines Syndicate and bonded
a number of claims inDthe Boundary uistrict. Among theui was the
."Mother Lode upon which development, waa commenced in Sept.,
Jb'Jo, under the direction of Frederic Keller, now practicing his profession as consulting engineer and
geologist in this city. All work
was done by hand until March,
1S03, when the British Columbia
Copper Co., Ltd., was organized to
take over the assets of the original
syndicate. A steam compressor
plant'was hauled in from Marcus,
Wash., installed in June of the
Fame year, aud opening of the mine
for ore extraction commenced.
A two-compartment shaft was
punk to the 220-foot level and
drifts run on the 200-foofe level.
The work developed a very large
and continuous body of copper ore
and in 1S99 it was decided to construct a smelter forthwith. Woik
commenced in the fall of the same
year, with the late Paul .Johnson
���'ns dfsiguer and superintendent.
Only one furnace���42 by 150 inches
ac the tuyeres���was installed, at
first, it capacity being approximately 300 tons daily. . It was blown
in on February 17, 1902. Meanwhile development was continued
in the Mother Lode mine, a glory-
hole system of mining was laid out
:x..A the shaft extended. A 25-
1 steam-driven, compound, coning Corliss compressor was in-
- ;*���(!, together with largo hoist-

of the furnaces were lengthened
from 20 to 30 feet, the capacity of
the plant thus being increased to
from 2200 to 2300 tons daily.
In March, 1917, all assets and
liabililies of British Columbia Copper Co., Ltd., were assumed by
Canada Copper Corporation with
capital of ��10,000,000, divided into
2.000,000 of par value of $5. A
convertible bond issue of $2,500,-
000, running ten years with 6 per
cent, sinking fund provision, was
authorized and underwritten by
Hayden, Stone & Co. and Eugene
Meyer, Jr., of New York. Efforts
were concentrated upon development of the Copper Mountain properties through a 2900 foot tunnel
and equipment with a 2000-ton
concentrator. Jt is estimated that
these improvements will have cost
approximately ��3,000,000 . when
completed next summer. Arrangements for treatment of the concentrates, which require reverbatory
furnaces lacking in the company's
own equipment, have been made
with Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., operating the Trail smelter
and, as the copper and silver values of the Mother Lode and other
company mines have been decreasing gradually for some years, while
costs.[have materally increased,
Canada Copper Corporation decided
to abandon its Greenwood smelter
and did so a few weeks ago.
Directors of Canada Copper Corporation, which is a Virginia corporation, are Lucius Mayer, president; Arthur J. Eonaghan, vice-
president; R.H. Eggleston, secre-

Kelbeck, near Cracow, is a town
which is located underground and
ib cut entirely from rock salt.
There are 3,000 inhabitants, all
workers in the salt mines, and all
the Ptreets and houses are of the
purest white salt. There is probably in all the world only one town
built of glass, and that is to be
found near Yellowstone Park iu
the United States. The glass is
not artificial, but natural, being
formed by ages of volcanic action.
It is dark green or black in hue,
but in every other respect resembles the artificial product.
Easily cut into slabs and impervious to the weather, it makes excellent building material. Bareira,
in Portuguese East Africa, is the
only zinc city in existence. Zinc
is the only material capable of
withstanding the peculiar climate.
It only took some thousands of
people who make up the population
six months to build the place. Hospital, church, arsenal and every
dwelling is of zinc; the dead are
buried in zinc coffins, and even
most of the railway cars are zinc

The Goddess of Liberty is
French not American, as so many
think. The phrase was given
historical importance on October
5, 1789, when a starving mob of
female furies, with canon, guns,
pistols and horses rushed out of
Paris to Versailles and charged the
palace where Louis XVI and the
members of his court were royster-
ing and feasting. A deputation of
twelve women was selected to present the appeal of the people, and
this group in turn elected a young
girl of seventeen, famed for her
beauty, as the leader of the delegation. As this revolutionary Joan
of Arc approached the king Bhe
fainted, but when she recovered
she won the goodwill of Louis.
She obtained his promise of relief
for the poor, and the king thereupon bedecked her with .flowers
and hailed her as "the Goddess of
Liberty."���Ladies  Home Journal,
