Some_copper has  been sold for  delivery  in  January,  next year.    Although the producing  companies   are   turning  out    more  copper   than   ever  before   in    their  history they have   been   obliged  to  ' refuse   orders   from   some   of  their  regular customers recently. I  A   considerable   tonnage   of   unrefined copper was   sold   this   week  for export.     It is to   be  made  into  copper    sulphate,    converted    into  Bordeaux mixture and used to spray  vineyards.    This leads to   the  conclusion   that  even   the- supplies  of  unrefined   copper  in   Europe   have  been practically  exhausted.    Brass  makers in this country are   continuing to receive ah  enormous   aggregate of orders for the various shapes  used in the manufacture  of  ammunition and other war supplies.    Consumers are afraid to enter upon new  contracts until they have covered in  the required amount of copper, and  as a result there is no   sign   of any  let up   in   the  buying   demand.    A  large tonnage has been sold recently  at   prices   ranging  from   26   to  28  cents and in these sales nearly all of  the producing companies have   participated.    Th6re   is    certainly    no  indication that   the   metal   will   sell  any lower in the near future, and   it  probably will not decline at all  until  some   time   after  the   end    of    the  European wai.  of  the ..missies  of  destruction . are  covered with a shell   of aluminum,  upon   which" is  marked   figures   to  enable the gunner to'tinie explosion,  Still adhering to the agents   of destruction is the mud of France, and  their   jagged    edges    bear     mute  testimony to the fearful   havoc  that  is being wrought by the inventative  genius   of man  in  these   days    of  peace on earth, good will to "all rrienv  Trumpour is on   his   way   to  the  scene of action once   again   after  a  visit  to   England.

The   understanding is that the government will  place a war tax on the   earnings  of  corporations profiting by war   business.    The proposal seems to  be^a  tax of 25 per cent on   net   earnings  in excess of 7 per cent   on   paid   up  capital.  Just what is to be the basis of  taxation on mining companies has  not been made plain as yet, though  the Granby company is said to have  figured out that its tax on net earnings of $3,000,000 will be only about  $100,000.

The custom which ordains that a  woman may propose marriage to a  man in leap year dates back seven  or eight hundred years. An act of  the* Scottish parliament, passed  about the year 1228, made it a crime  punishable by a fine, for an unattached man to refuse to become  the life partner of a woman who had  thejeourage to "speak ye mon she  likjjdl"  The custom in a milder form is  referred to in a work published in  1606, entitled "Courtship, Love and  Matrimony:"  "Albeit it has now become a part  of the common lawe in regarde to  'social relations of life that as every  bissextile year doth return, the  Indies have the sole privilege during the time it continueth of making  love unto the men, which they doe  either by wordes or by lookes, as to  them it seemeth proper; and, moreover, no man shall be entitled to  the benefits of clergy who doth in  any wise treate her proposal with  slight or contumely."  skirts gracefully and without' self-  consciousness, there is no great  offense in itexcept to those whose  morals is microscopic.

The  great   New    York    success  "Within   the   Law,"   which .comes  to the  Miners' Union   Opera   house  Marth 4, for one night   only,   bears  the distinction' of   having   obtained  the longest'run ever giveo a  drama  in a New York   theatre,     For   over  400 performances capacity audiences  were the rule at the Eltinge theatre.  There   are   those,   doubtless,    who  may '  undertake     to     prove     that  "Within   the   Law"   is   a    problem  melodrama.     It  may  stand    as    a  pitiless   arraignment    against    the  men who ask girls to work for them  at wages on'which the girls   cannot  live; it may stand as  an   ironic   exposure ofthe way  the  law   is. sue-  cessfully    twisted      by     expensive  lawyers to fit rich clients'   needs;   it  may stand for something of a laugh  at the, expense of the police   department.     But it   is  safe   to   say  that  audiences will not see  anything   in  it. but an exciting  entertainment   of  a   most   vivid   kind   in   which    the  sympathy from first to last   is   with  the shop girl who is   sent   to  serve  three years in prison for a crime she  has,    never    committed.     Someone  once   said   that   if   you   win   your  uudience in the first scene you   may  play with them for the   rest   of the  evening.     You     have     established  your    atmosphere.     "Within,  the  Law" establishes its atmosphere   in  its first five minutes   and   maintains  an undivided interest   until   the   fall'  of   the   curtain   on    the   last   act.  Comedy is provided by the character  of  Agnes   Lynch,,    a    professional  blackmailer, whose   tirades   on   the  inspector   of police   never   fails   to  elict roars of comedy and rounds of  applause.
