SEVENTEENTH YEAR  PATRIOTIC SOCIETY'S  SUCCESSFUL BAZAAR  Union Hall Scene of Animated Gaiety ��� Booths  Depleted of Wares.  During' the evolution of Phoenix  from a mining- camp to an incorporated city, this place has been the  scene of many a successful social  function, but' none of them have  been conducted on so ambitious a  scale, and withal been attended with  so marked a success, as the'recent  bazaar promoted by the Woman's  Patriotic Society of this town. From  the time the doors were thrown open on'the afternoon of Wednesday,  the ballroom ofthe Union hall was  a scene of animated gaiety more in  keeping with a city thrice the size of  Phoenix. The prettily be-decked  booths were stocked and restocked  with an array of really beautiful  and useful articles, many of them  representing weeks of patient self  denying labor.  For'hours..-the  industrious store  clerks did   a   thriving business, and  the close of the first day's work saw  the stocks "sadly" depleted.    A particularly pleasing feature of the bazaar, and one  much commented   on,  whether   the transaction ��� concerned  the sale   of a  dressing   gown   or a  cup of tea, was the reasonable prices  prevailing;���'* " For  some   hours   the  famous sybil,"  ''Illiisia",   held  audience,    and concealed  from   prying  eyes, extended  mysterious and impartial; advice  to  young and   old,  wedded and   unwedded alike.

'When we  visited  it the  mermaid was very accommodating.  We "smoked" our catch.    The second day was not so strenuous.    The  booths1   were   reduced   to   two   and  the evening   was spent   in dancing,  with intervals for deciding the ownership of the   various useful articles  that   were   raffled.

The timely visit to Phoenix on  Sunday la'st, of F. Nation, secretary  of the Canadian... Patriotic Fund in  British Columbia,'was much' appreciated, and his lucid- statement of  the aims, objects, and methods ��� of  disposal of the money in this province was welcomed by all classes  in this locality.  The attendance at the opera  house, while by no. means large,  was representative. Supporting Mr.  Nation on the platform were Messrs.  J. W. Thompson and P. B. Free-  land, the latter secretary of the  local patriotic fund, and the'former  actively connected with the Phoenix  machine gun fund. Mr. Nation's  address was well prepared, and  covered the whole of the activities  of the committee from its- inception.  The call upon the funds, he pointed  out, was very great and the disbursements were necessary, and  promised to increase a's the war  dragged on. He said he was proud  of the stand, taken by this province,  when ten per cent, of the total enlistments in the Dominion were  wounded. And this despite the fact  that the population of 13. C. was but  one hundredth of the Dominion.  He was well pleased with the splendid organization he found  here, and  all that was left for them to do was  "to pay." "Fight or Pay" was the  slogan just now.    .  The fund was carefully administered, the cost of administration being  only one per cent ofthe amount disbursed in relief. He reminded his  hearers that charity had nothing in  common with this fund. It was a  duty we all owed to the dependents  of.those at.the front, who were risking their lives, and suffering hardships and discomforts just-as much  for us as  they were for themselves.  Twenty thousand dollars was the  sum he was given to understand  would be added to the fund from  Phoenix. He thought the organization here was one of the best in the  province and all that remained to  be done was to aportion the money  on the lines he had suggested. Mr.  Nation said that the monthly allowances was not uniform. Where a  family had no other source of income the grant was increased. The  minimum sum allowed was $10, and  the maximum $40 per month. They  required the sum of $750,000 from  this province alone. It. was highly  desirable that a surplus to last for  six months after the war ended  should be on hand.  The'speaker's  address was  punc  Walker's Copper Letter  . Commenting on the copper situation, G-.L,. Walker, ,in his recent  "weekly copper.Jetter" says in part:  "Copper is strong and the market  is fractionally higher. Lake is 18  1-4 to 18 1-2 cents and electrolytic  is 18 1-4 to 18 3.4 cents a.-pound.  A fairly good volume of sales is- being made every day, a large number  of domestic consumers having  adopted the policy of buying only  from hand to mouth, The reason  for this is that some of the consuming trade interests are bearish.  They claim that the market is rigged,  and cling to the belief that production is still exceeding consumptive requirements.  "A great deal of talk is being  made over the wide margin of difference between the prices of standard and electrolytic copper in  London. Last Monday spot standard was quoted at ��73 5s., and  electrolytic was selling at the same  time at 90 pounds per ton, a difference of approximately seventeen  pounds, or 3 1-2 cents per pound.  Resort to pencil and paper makes it  clear that this difference is fully  justified, being made necessary by  the abnormal conditions now existing. ��� ��� ��� Granby's earnings  for the three months covered by its  recent quarterly report were at the  rate of $1,542,344 annually, after  taking care of"bond interest, which  is equivalent to more.-than   $10   per  BIG HISTORIC CURLING  DATE SET FOR JAN. 17  British  Columbia   Curlers  To Meet Here Jan. 17���  Big Crowd Expected.  At a representative meeting on  Wednesday of members of the local  curling ciub, it was definitely announced that the annual British Columbia curling bonspeil would commence in Phoenix at 7 o'clock in the  evening of January 17th. Among  other business transacted was the  selection of permanent committees  and the election of officers for the  forthcoming term. J. J. Strutzel  was elected presideut, D. Ritchie,  vice-president and W. X. Perkins,  secretary-treasurer.  The approaching bonspeil is the  chief event of the year among B.'  C. curlers, and it is estimated that  the number of visitors to this city  during that week will be in the,  neighborhood of 120.

That  old steamboat, "SansNon," a never  ending   source   of  delight    to    excursionists, is reported to be  resting.  40 fathoms deep in the   lake.     How  the craft got  there, or   rather   what  agency sent it there, is at  present a  secret engaging the attention'of. the  provincial   police   at   Grand   Forks.  The factious ones lay   the   crime   to  the   activities   of  a    German    submarine, a craft answering that   des  caption having been seen one  night  from Bill Beach's doorstep.     Others  appear to think   that   the   ghost   of  the old Viking   whom   the   Phoenix  Scandinavians burnt  to   death   with  befitting ceremony three years   ago,  has returned lo the spot, and   probably enraged at finding   the   bar   at  the   Christinia   hotel   no    more,     is  venting his spleen on the lake shipping.

It contains none of the impure and  irritating mineral drugs and animal  fats present in ordinary ointments.  The anticeptic and bactericidal (germ-  destroying) powers of this preparation  are proved by my teste to exceed those  of carbolic acid, yet Zam-Buk neither  cauterizes nor inflames even a very  sensitive skin, but ends skin disorders.  "I nave no hesitation in certifying  the purity of Zam-Buk and its value  for skin disorders."  Mothers who have not yet tried  Zam-Buk should profit by the above.

It is, of course, true,  that many of the "Canadians" are  young Englishmen who have sought  their fortune over there, thereby  showing grit, determination, and  courage���all the qualities the Happy  Warrior should possess. Moreover, we saw them arrive, we had  them among us for many more  months than they cared to wait, and  When they went to the fighting line  they won instant glory.

Four have .been killed, four seriously wounded, and  two  prisoners ofll   present this section  is  served  by  two  of the  greatest systems on the continent^the  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an.array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception miheraiiferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more tha surface indications  of the presence of coal,  FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great:  importance, easily accessable to river and railway.    There is scarcely a square mile of   I  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could   not   be   reached  by the expenditure ofthe smallest outlay.    Not the least attraction from  the point of  view ofthe investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Bhoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British CoIumbia^Copper company. In the former camp, and  grounding !t for miIes on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor. The title deeds' to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining.litigation in the courts  ���of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities ofthe Boundary  as  an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are;also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to  some   of  its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.

Logan returned   to   the   city  on Saturday last from Nelson where  Magnesite, one of the most  valuable  of the   non-metallic   minerals,  lias been found   in   large quantities  along the shore of Lake Atlin, in the  northeastern part of British  Columbia, according to a consular report.  Seven claims have  been  located by  Vancouver parties, and plans are be.  ing made for working the deposits.  This ore is shown by analysis to be  exceptionally pure, running as high  as 98 per cent, in   magnesium   carbonate.    The world's supply has so  far   come   from   California,   Greece  and   Austria.    On   account  of   the  war the latter source is cut  off, and  since this was the   most   important,  there is  an   extraordinary   demand  for the mineral, which   British   Columbia will  soon be in a position   to  supply.   Magnesite consists of magnesia, 48 per cent.,  and  carbon   dioxide, 52 percent., and used, calcination, to make bricks   for   refactory  furnace lining, nonconductive covering   for  steam   pipes,   boilers,   etc.  Magnesium   salts,    especially   and  snlphates, are used in   the arts and  in medicines, also   in   the   paper in  dustry, and in  connection  with   the  pulp industry of this province.   This  new discovery may prove   to   be of  special value, since  the chief  value  of the spruce forests in British Columbia is in their paper making possibilities, and the fact that magnesia  is necessary to the finished  product  and is right at hand, may be the result of greatly increasing the import  ance of the pulp- industry.���Mining  and Engineering Journal.

Re Machine Guns  The .following .official   announcement.has been issued to . the  press  for publication:  ��� VThe government desires  it- distinctly, understood   throughout   the  country 'that, no   subscriptions    or  contributions for machine  guns  are  required, as all expenditure for that  purpose should be   defrayed  out   of  the public treasury.  "The impression seems to have  gained ground that an. appeal for  I such contributions to the public was  made by some members of the  government. J The prime minister  has made careful inquiry and cannot  ascertain that any such request was  ever put forth.  "Appeals must necessarily be  made to the generosity ofthe public  of Canada for aid to the patriotic  fund, the ' Canadian Red- Cross  society and other similar organizations which are^ performing a  national service.  "It1 is earnestly hoped that the  efforts of the various committees in  Canada: will be directed to the  necessary assistance of such associations rathfer than -to -contributions  for machine guns, which have been  amply, provided for by the federal  government." (  Doing Their "Bit"  It is good news to   hear that an.  other mine has taken the stand that  those on its payroll   must  do   their  "bit" in paying for the  war, if they  do not want to, or are unable to go  and fight.   Hereafter each employee  at the Bluebell will have to  put up  one day's pay per month,.the money  to be equally   divided   between  the  Red Cross and the   Patriotic   Fund.  Of course a mining company, under  the free and easy system of government/which j; is ' at 'present   being  fought for by Canadian .soldiers, can  run its mine ptetty much as it pleases  as long as it does  not  transgress a  few elementary   rules   as to safety,  etc., but it seems to us that the plan  adopted at the Bluebell  might   with  adopted at all   other mines" on   the  active list.    The  war  is   increasing  the prosperity of the workers in the  silver-lead   mines,    and   all    alike,  whether alien, Britisher' or  Canadian, should  face   the   alternative of  helping pay for  the   upkeep   ot   the  dependents of those   who   have enlisted or get their walking  papers.  ���Kaslo Kootenain.

Once Bit, Twice Shy  : ^ An   old ;country  farmer  lost his  .barn last year by fire.    They said at  the  time  that he  was  insured for  more than the building was   worth,  and that he was not sorry to seeVthe  old shed destroyed...    Unfortunately  for his hopes', however, the insurance  people took advantage of an option  in their policy and replaced the barn  instead of giving  him   the   money,  greatly  to   his  disgust. ���   Not long  afterwards the traveling agent of a  life   assurance   company  came into  the village, and, among others, solicited the old man to effect an assurance on his life.   "No, no," said the  farmer;   "I should feel as if I  were  going to die tomorrow."    "Well,"'  said the  agent, facetiously, "if that  is the case, take  the   assurance on  your wife."    "You don't  catch me  there, either,"chuckled the old man.  "I know the way of you   insurance  chaps;    You would just go and give  mi another old jade even worse than'fr  the first.?
