The coke consumed represents  about half the smelting costs of  Granby ore, so that the freight  charges on coke from more distant  colleries prohibits the consideration  of such a move at the present price  of copper. * ,  Asked    concerning   the    Hidden  Creek  mine,  Mr.   Sylvester  stated  the   development   work    continues  with gratifying results, and it is altogether  probable that   the Granby  will  exercise   its   option   which expires in the course of a few months.

This is certainly a magnificent increase, but the most interesting studyjs in analyzing the  figures in such a way as to show  the true prolificacy of the district.  In 1910 there: was a total of ( 34,-  239 tons produced and the average  contents per ton figured 890 ounces  which at 50 cents per ounce, would  bring $425 per ton. Think of this  for an average!.  , There was a total amount of  30,000,000 ounces produced, valued at over $15,000,000 and there is  every indication that these figures  will be greatly increased at the end  of 1911.,    H.,'--v. ,',,������.

Cranbrook is all swelled up over
the fnct that it is to become an
automobile center. Several manufacturers have placed on sale their
makes of buz wagons, and the town
has gone honk! honk! mad.
Fred Egg of Moyie is out of luck.
/Last   week he   broke a   finger, and
one year ago   broke   his arm.     But
how could Mr. Egg   expect to keep
whole with such a delicate name.
One hundred and forty new town-
sites will be laid out on the G. T.
P. railway this summer. Fifteen
of these will be on the line running
east from Prince Rupert, a town-
site being located every seven miles.
The Cranbrook Prospector is becoming desperate. It not only
prints the head of the paper in red,
but invites Sir Wilfrid Laurier to
start something, and urges johnny

During 1909 the loss through

After Canadian Bachelors
Instead   of   holding   indignation
meetings to.protest against drawing
the attention of marriageable young
women to the opportunities open  in
:this   country   to   become   the   helpmates of lonely Canadian bachelors,
German girls are preparing to compete with   their English  cousins for
Canadian   husbands,   according    to
an amusing letter from one prospective bride   in   the   Tageblatt.     The
letter  is   signed   "Helene," and the
editor of the Tageblatt declares that
it is in every, respect genuine. .
The writer, who appears to be a
Suffragette, with keen insight into
the political discontent now rife in
Germany, says: "I see. by the
newspaper that Canada is looking
for 5,000 brides, and that there are
50,000 eligible bachelors there without-suitable feminine acquaintances.
Will   you   please, Mr.   Editor, give
us the fullest possible information
about conditions in Canada, because
we intend going there to find husbands. We do not see why young
English women should snatch the
best catches from under the very
hoses of the German girls.
"Since the  German   government
pays no attention   whatever   to   the
colossal   surplus   of  German   girls,,
and as   the   high   price   of  meat is
making it  increasingly   difficult for
respectable girls to get married, the
girls of our circle have unanimously
decided to become  British  subjects
and  emigrate  to   Canada   in   order
that the aspirations of the Canadian
bachelors   may   be   gratified.     The
Prussian      government    will     then
realize   that   through    its   obsolete
franchise system the young  women
to whom the  vote   is   refused   have
been  driven  into the arms of England."
