Patriotic, Society Formed  '_  ,   <���.,_ 't ___���        ������  - Anumberof local, ladies met on  .Wednesday at the residence of Mrs.  N. J. Carson, and formed what is  to be known as the Woman's Patriotic society. The object of the organization, which by the way occupies a niche all its own, is the furnishing of comforts to the Canadian  troops at the front. The idea is a  laudable one, and, as one writer  has said, "if the people "at home  could have heard the blessings falling from the shivering lips pf our  devoted soldiers on the receipt of a  consignment of goods, there would  not be a mother, wife, or sister in  the .-empire, but who. would not  be engaged in preparing something  to alleviate our soldiers' unhappy  lot." The meeting elected the following officers: Mrs. C. M. Campbell,  president; Mrs. J.,Ingram, secretary; Mrs. J. A. Morrin, treas.; and  Mrs.- J. R". Munro, Mrs. Carson and  Mrs. W. L. Ritchie, committee.  Lead Struck on Argo  - After six years of work, in which  a1 tunnel extending into the mountain for 1200 feet hats been driven,  the operations 'on the Argo tunnel^  have been rewarded with success.  Some days ago a fine lead, of gold-  bearing quartz was encountered,  and while at present' no details of  the values have been given out, the  president of the company says he is  more than satisfied with the turn  events have taken. The lead has a  width of five feet. Probably ne  other mining company in the province has shown such indomitable  perseverance in the face of adverse  circumstances than the above, and  the news of the strike will be wel-  comed.by the stockholders and people of Greenwood generally. The  situation of the mine is a peculiarly  favorable one,, a distance of only a  few hundred feet separating the portal of the tunnel from the smelter of  the B.C. Copper company.  Copper Prospect  r t t   ...  Holiday dullness marks the copper market, but prices are btjng  held by the selling interests.

The head of one of the largest  veiling agencies says: "Under present conditions���with production restricted and demand so far below  normal���13 cents per pound is a  very satisfactory figure, and so lone  as the^war continues we ought not  to hope for, higher figures. Any  unexpected cessation of hostilities  would be followed by 16 or 17 cent  copper, for the reason that business  wouldlmmediately start up and refineries could not produce the usual  normal amount of metal under t two  or three months.

The most telling incident  of the  German   spy  system   is   that   surrounding the escape of the' German  cruisers Goeben and Breslku.  These  two ships   at   the   outbreak   of war  weVe in the   straits of Messina, with  the ^British fleet outside watching for  them.     It'would have been the simplest thing   imaginable- for Admiral  Troubridge"    to   have   either   sunk  or driven*them 'into an Italian port,'  but having received a wireless message in the British code to let them  through,    the  commander  allowed  them to escape.    How the Germans  managed to   secure   the, key to'the  British code is of course.a mystery,  in   view  of the  fact  that the code  was only a week old, but it is more  than likely  that the  secret was ob-  Carada's Rally to Empire  The Greatest Event in Canada's  History���the Talk bf the  Whole World.  When the great Armada of thirty-one  big ships, carrying thirty-two thousand  of Cunada's sons, and escorted by.nineteen great BritiBh battleships, weighed  ancror end sailed down the St. Lawrence  carrying our men to aid in righting the  Empire's battles, few people realized all  it moant to Canada.    It has been the  talk of the whole world. .Statesmen and  newt papers the world over commented  on it and cried "Bravo, Canada."    The  illust rated London News said the arrival  was "an advent unparalleled since William the Conqueror."    It  was truly a  magnificent spectacle to see this great  fleet setting sail, a sight never before  seen on Canadian shore��.    News of the  departure   was  censored and kept so  secret that few   indeed were on the  scene to see the big ships, weigh anchor  on   the   GaBpe   coast.   This  spectacle  would have been lost to the people of  Canada had not the Family Herald and  Star  of Montreal  had their staff.of  photographers there to  reproduce   it.  Their photos of the great flotilla are the  best piece of photographic work in the  history of the art.

"To Germany," says the London  $io.oo| Chronicle,   "belongs   the   credit   of  'having    transformed   Lloyd-George  from   an  apostle   of peace   into   a  crusader for war.    Our own history  has  furnished   us   with   a "glorious  example  of a   similar, conversion.

These   figures   have   all  , been   duly   admitted   as   correct by  thu thrifty   Dutch,  and  it is difficult  to see  how  the   Home government  can act other than  she has done in  the matter of contraband cargoes.  _.
