Output Low in February
The Granby 'Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power company
produced 2,610,735 pounds of copper in February, according to a
New York report. This is comparable with 3,156,486 pounds in
January last and with 3,842,686 in
February, 1918.
The earning in February of this
year were probably the lowest in
any month of recent years, due to
the shortness of the month, the
low price of the metal, as compared
with costs, and the production
which is the lowest since AuguBt
laBt. The costs have been 10��
cents or more at Anyox and about
19 cents at Grand Forks, accord-
to the statement of stockholders
when copper was sold at 25 cents a
pound. The cost at Grand Forks
has been reduced by a redaction in
wages within recent weeks. Idleness .was/'forced ...on the Anyox
plant by fire early in this month,
but another furnace was blown in
at Grand Forks. The damage,
estimated at $50,000, may be repaired within a few weeks.

Paris. ��� Among the officials of the
peace conference it was openly declared a week or so ago that the Russian question, which was regarded as
the mo'st pressing, would be taken up
immediately. Il happened, however,
thatk conditions in Germany-were so
alarming that speed was needed in
drawing up a treaty of peace. Hence
disarmament was thc important topic
considered first.
It was brought to thc attention of
the council lhat the idea of immediately drafting the article of-the treaty
dealing with thc disarmament of Germany was needed iu order to expedite matters. For the last few weeks
the delegates have been hurrying everything in the hope of getting-the
preliminary peace settled. It was
agreed that although Russia was tre-.-
mcndously important, Germany was
no less so and therefore between tht
two evils thcy chose the latter. This
has resulted in criticism in: ^certain
quarters where it is believed, that
Russia should have been dealt with
An interesting sidelight on German affairs was given by Prof. Geo.
E. Herron in the form of an anecdote of Kurt Eisner. Mr. Herron
met Herr Eisner when the latter was
attending the Berne Socialist conference three weeks ago.
"In the course of a talk on the sit^
nation on thc cast front," said Prof.
Herron, "Herr  Eisner   told "mc  that

thc medical officer of hcnlllh, free

purposes. Electricity is passed
through a_ solution of certain "salts,
converting the liquid into an effective
non-poisonous disinfectant which.can
bc stored unimpaired for long periods.   .
Asthma Cured
To Stay Cured
Thousands Testify to the
lasting benefit secured trom.
One of the, finest discoveries in
medicine was - given to the public
when '-'Catarrhozone" was placed on
thcr market .about fifteen years ago.
Since then thousands have been cured
of asthma and catarrh. An interesting
case is reported from Calgary in a
letter from Creighton E. J hompson,

Is Recognized As Having Vast Practical Importance
The following comment on the Canadian Pacific Railway^ Company's policy of supplying trees to larhi'Crs on
irrigated lands, is taken from the
Canadian  Forestry Journal:
"A~ far-seeing scheme of tree planting has been put into effect by the
department of natural resources of
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company on the irrigation block cast ot
Calgary. Naturally devoid of any tree
growth and yet with great potentialities in agiicultural production under
the stimulus of an irrigation system,
it was early realized by the -management that no matter how fine'thc
building that may be put up on the
j bald prairie, it can never be a_���rcal
home unless there arc some'trees and
shrubs upon the ground. Most of the
settlers coming to the irrigated lands
had their origin in well treed districts
and all of their old associations aic
'very intimately connected with the
j trees growing about their old homesteads and - thc lcaf-siiadcd lanes
through which thcy played as children.' .   ../ V
"Thc aesthetic side of prairie farming is coming to be rccogued as haying vast practical importance;. For
example, il a settler can be induced to
become interested in the appearance
of his farm, particularly to- the point
where hc will plant a grove "of trees,
it is reasonably certain that he will
soon have something more than a
transient'business'interest in thc property. Once that attitude is developed it is but logical to assume that the
settler' will, not start-out to ''mine"
the soil with the object of getting as
much quick money as possible and
then selling out. The Canadian Pacific" Railway Company has done a
splendid service in encouraging plant?
ing_ of trees around the homes on the,
irrigation block and hits -distributed
each year, without .charge, quantities
of trees which have, beenfouiul by experiment to be hardv in theclistrict."

.1. A Review of What God Had
Done (23:2, 4). "
.1. God had fought Israel's battles
(v. 3). He gave them victory over
thc strong nations which inhabited
Canaan. Striking evidences of this
arc the capture'of Jericho and victory
at Gibeon, when the sun stood still
at Joshua's command. This victory
had been secured quickly, which indicates that God had interposed in
their behalf.
2. God by thc hand of Joshua had
apportioned the land among the
tribes (v. 4) for an inheritance. In
chapter 24 Joshua rehearses '' the
wonderful things God had done for
thc nation extending from Abraham
down through the-ages.
2. Points out thc Promises as yet
Unfulfilled (23:5-10).
1. "He shall expel thcm before
you" (v. 5). Thc actual possession
which God had given was lhc pledge
that hc would give them full possession. God's promise was the guarantee of this. In view of God's faithful
performance of all his promises there
should bc no room for doubt.
2. "One man of you shall chase a
thousand" (v. 10). Thc reason of
this was because the Lord God wouid
fight for them. To have the - Lord
fight for us is lo havc thc assurance
of victory regardless of how few or
how many.   -.- V
3. The condition upon which these
promises would be realized (1) . "Bc
very courageous" (v, 6). At a time
like this it required courage to look
1 to God lor all the nation's needs. (2)
"Keep and do all that is -written in
the law of Moses" (v. ,6). Fidelity to
must be handed ^vcr and destroyed.
It is added that allied commissions
will supervise the carrying out- of
these conditions; ' _      ^   '"

Arab Prophecy Fulfilled

there forever (as in Virgil's First
Eclogue) a like prophecy was ��� made,
two thousand years ago, of the impossibility of thc Germans reaching

Coming Through The Rye
It's  6S years ago since Jenny
Lind sang "Coming Through   the
Rye."    New York went  wild,   as
did tbe whole country,   over  the
voice of the Sweedish Nightingale
who was raised  on  rye bread, but
what did it know, what did it care
about rye?   Almost nothing.   War
and possible famine were necessary
to make us give serious consideration   to   that   cereal.    When    we
awoke   to the fact that  a world
famine was possible, we paid court
to rye.    Campaigns were conducted  to increase its production because an acre of  rye  will produce
more food than one of  wheat.    It
is also hardier and will stand more
winter   killing.    When,   in   1917,
the wheat; crop was  small  because
of winter killing, the rye crop was
25 per  cent  larger than  the year
before  and,   like    a. replacement
regiment in  France,  filled   many
gaps in  tbe  first line of defense
against the attacks of hunger.    It
was principal replacement  because
it  is  bhe only   grain  aside   from
wheat from which  light bread can
be made.    Thus, it took an important. part"iu  fche last  two years of

They Lie in France Where Lilies Bloom
They.lie   in  France
Where   lilies   bloom;
Those    flowers   pale
That guard each tomb
Are    saintly     souls
That   smiling   stand
Close    by    them    in
That martyred land.
And mutely there the long night shadows creep
From quiet hills to mourn for them who sleep,
While o'er them through tbe dusk so silently
The grieving clouds that slowly drift to sea,
And lately round them moaned the Winter wind
Whose voice, lamenting, sounds bo coldly kind.
Yet in their faith those waiting hearts abide
The time when turns forever   that   false tide.
In   France   they   lie
Where   lillies bloom
Those     flowers-  fair
For them made room.
Not    vainly    placed
The    crosses    stand
Within    that   brave
And   stricken    land; ,
Their    honor   lives,
Their   love  endures,
Their    noble   death
The   right    assures,
For they shall have their hearts' desire;
They  who,   unflinching,   braved the fire,
Across the fields their eyes afe lasfe shall see
Through clouds and misfe the bonds of victory.
