Next Wednesday  and  Thursday,  all   roads   throughout  this   locality  will centre  on   the  doors leading to  the  Patriotic   Bazaar,     If you have  a date on any of those two days (unless   it   be   a   wedding   or   a court  .subpoena) kindly   forget it and make  hasty tracks ior the   Miners' Union  hall.

Why?   Because   every  cent of the   net   proceeds will be devoted.to   the   alleviation   of human  agony    and    wretchedness.    Surely  such an aim,   for  so  worthy an object,   will   command   the   undivided j  support of the people of Phoenix?  The ladies will  pitch their booths  in the   large   ballroom, and  the list  of  articles   for  sale,   while   not   so  sweeping as   to  include  the proverbial needle and anchor, will be found-  diversified   enough    as   to   suit   the  most exacting of visitors.     Among  the stalls will be  one for the sale of  'things  suitable for  Xmas and New  Year  gifts, 'including   pictures    of  scenes   in   the   vicinity   of   Phoenix  taken   and   mounted by an  accom-  lished   local   amateur.    Others  will  be  devoted   to   the   sale  of babies'  and   "children's"   wares,   fruit  and  home cooking, (the latter an excellent opportunity   for   some   to   taste  the   things    that   mother   used    to  make),   fancy   work,    candies,   and  one for the sale of household goods.

Down From Vernon  Among the  visitors  in  khaki this  week,   was    Private    V.    Kennedy,  who some time  ago  enlisted for active service with the Canadian Army  Medical  Corps.     He   is   here   for a  few days' furlough visiting  his relatives:    Asked   what he   thought  of  the step be had taken, he expressed  himself  as   fully   satisfied   with   the  unit.    The  officers  were   a fine lot,  and the   rank   and  file a particularly-  good bunch of boys.     He thought it  would not   be long   before  he would  be included in   a  draft for England.  Ted Deichert and Percy Pierce, who  also enlisted with   him, were jubt as  pleased   with   their   prospect  as  kj.e  was.      The former is tibout to leave  on   a   visit   to   bis   relatives   in   Los  Angeles.     All. down   the Okanagan  Lake, the   young   fellows   have left  for the training-camps and the front,  said   Mr.    Kennedy,   and   he added  that   it   seemed   strang-e   to   see/so  many     eligible   for     service   in: the j  lower country   who   were   not yet in I  uniform. ���������'.' ;     |  The Granby. Consolidated have  commenced the issuance of their  promised quarterly reports, Ihe first  of which covers... a period of three  months ending September 30th,  Commenting' on it the Boston Commercial says:  "During the period   under review  the   company   treated 521,252 tons  of ore, made up of 185382 tons from  its Midden Creek mine, 301,420 tons  from its   Phoenix  mines and 34,450  tons   of custom   ore.       Production  amounted   to  12,057,385  pounds of  copper, 177,610 ounces of silver and  14,829 ounces .of gold.    The averge  cost of copper for the  period, after  deducting the gold andsilver values,  is given  as  follows:  Hidden Creek,  7.939 cents;  at Grand  Forks, 10.91  cents per pound.  The company's net profit for the  three months is .."estimated" as  $486,436. Dividend No. 19, of  $1.50; a share, called for $224,878  and $55,248 of bond interest accrued. The surplus for the quarter  therefore was $206,210.  In a footnote to the report is the  statement that 8,285,000 pounds of  unsold copper remained on hand  and was figured in the gross income  at 15^   cents   a pound   at  the date  :that sixty per cent of this amount  has since* been realized on at 17^  'cents. It is .probable that all of  'this 8.385,000 pounds was in transit and in process of refining, the  total amount being the equivalent of  'only two months' production.  If the 8,385,000 pounds of copper  carried by Granby at an inventory  (value of 15^ cents is sold at 17^c,  and, the difference of two cents a  pound added to its September quarter profits, it will raise the total to  $654,136, which is -at. the rate of  $16 per share annually for the company's stock after paying the interest on its outstanding bonds.  Analysis of the figures in  the report brings out theSfact that Gran-  by's copper cost is now considerably  higher  than   is  generally believed.  Apparently the management's statement refers to the cost of copper in  bullion at the smelters, for the profit  and loss account shows that the total cost,   after including   freight, refining, selling, and eastern expenses,  and   crediting  gold   and   silver,   as  other companies do, was 11.92 cents  a pound.   Presumably this high cost  is largely due to the smelter difficulties at Anyox  and  to  the fact that  the    plant    is    not   yet   recovering  the values   in   the   dust,   and will be  Peddling���No License  Nicholas-Sedawie,,' a  Syrian pedlar, was charged on Thursday morning   before    Police   Magistrate   J.  Mulligan, with transacting business  in   the  province   without   being   in  possession pf the necessary license.  Provincial   Constable  G.   Howieson  surprised the accused at the Granby  hotel disposing of gent's furnishings,  phoney jewelery, pipes, etc.   On being charged, the  accused's  brother  with  the usual  transparent oriental  cunning, informed the constable that  the   licence   had   been   left    behind  in    an   old   coat   at    Fernie.    The  scheme,  however,   refused   to work  out that way, and   to  the  astonishment of the man from Mesopotamia,  the   court   assessed   the   penalty  at  seventy  bones and  costs.     The act  under which the conviction was taken, provides   that the   fine  for such  offences   must  include  the value of  the   license,    and   this   the   pedlar  thinks   entitles   him   to   a   license.  However, according   to  a  ruling of  Gold   Commissioner   Dewdney.  the  oriental has another think coming.  TO LECTURE ON  PATRIOTIC FOND  F. Nation to Deliver an Address Sunday Evening.

Gus Theis, better known around  Cranbrook as the "Old Man of the  Hills,", has a double shift at work on  bis property at Perry Creek. He is  at work pumping water out of a 20  feet deep by fifty feet square hole.

Tolmie, deputy minister of  mines at Victoria, informs the press  that his department has been giving  a good deal of attention to publicity  work in regard to the mineral resources of the province; and that  22,000 special bulletins were forwarded to the office of the Agent-  general in London and to the Panama-Pacific Exposition, in addition to  several thousand copies of the annual reports of tbe department.

It is said the formation is similar to  that in the old upper workings of  the mine, which produced more than  $1,000,000 net a number of years  ago. The Payne mine is a pioneer  property of the Sandon region, and  several months ago the company  completed a long lower crosscut  tunnel, from which an upraise has  been run to connect with the old  working. The management plans  to cross to the ore body every 120  feet in the npraise, and the strike on  the 900-foot level is the first result  of this plan of development.  3C  3C  3C  3C=  Getting Ready for Bonspiel  Up to the present no decision has  been arrived at in the matter of  leasing the skating rink for the now  rapidly approaching season. We  understand that a number of tenders  have been submitted, and an early  decision may be looked for.  Some improvements looking lo  the comforts of botli skaters and  curlers, has been going on of late.  The curlers' quarters have been  been made very comfortable by  the addition of a thick layer of  beaver boarding on the walls, and  similar improvement has been made  to the ladies' dressing room in the  skating rink. The "beds" at the  curling rink have been treated to  a good layer of cinders.  Tbe Curling Club will hold a  meeting in the rink on Wednesday,  at eight o'clock.

In September, 1913,  during some negotiations with the  Turks at Constantinople, General  Savoff referred to his sovereign in  the following anything but complimentary terms: '.;  "What can you do with a man  who always lives in bodily fear���  fear of assassination, fear of disease,  fear of accident! You cannot think  what a job it was to keep up our  troops enthusiasm for a king who  dare not look at, a wounded soldier,  V'-' ���  can never be persuaded to go within a mile of a hospital, who trembles at the sound of the guns, and  hides himself in a railway carriage,  in which he flits from place to place,  always keeping .as far as possible  from the front."  The Pioneer extends its heartiest  dng the crew. The company upheld the men and promptly discharged the "shirkers."  Owing to a serious shortage of  coal in Denmark, energetic steps  are to be taken by the Danish government to work the deposits in  Greenland. The quality of the Greenland coal is said to be very poor.  The copper mines are also to receive  attention.

Concentrates  Shoot The Grafters  "Shoot army grafters like German spies," is the advice of one  Coogdon, a former Commissioner  of the Yukon Territory, who held  office during the very "paimy" days  of the Klondike excitement. The  advice is good, but why draw the'  line so late, and why single out the  army grafter. Surely there were a  few deserving such a fate among  the commissioner's friends in the far  north. The crookedness of these  army grafters has been uncovered  by a government inquiry, by a man  appointed by the Borden administration, which is more.than Sir Wilfrid  Laurier dared - to do when he held  (he reins of office during the riotous  reign of vice, corruption and worse  up north. Laurier knew, and every  member of his cabinet knew, what  was the state of affairs in the northern territory, but there was- no corn-  Lieut.

C.    "l  "Sho Some Fight"  The French Foreign Legion's American contingent was nearly wiped  out in the great advance. One of  the few who came out,whole was  John Frederick. Brown, usually  known as "Niggar John,"of Boston.  ���'Where are you wounded, John?"  a nurse asked. -  "I ain't wounded," grinned John.  Ise jes par'lized. We was goin' up  a slope with all kinds of things corn-  in' down at us an' a great big German Jack Johnson hit me right in  the middle of de back, an' lawzey  me, mistah! I sho thought ma days  was ovah."       ���  The Jack Johnson, the nurse explained only bruised John's back,  and probably deadened his legs, perhaps temporarily.  John used to work in an automobile factory and was asked why he  joined the Foreign Legion.  "Lawze man," said John through  his perpetual smile, "I guess I alhis  did have mo' curiosity dan intelligence."  "Still you saw the big battle.  That's something."  "You bet it was something." said  John. When I left Paris we went  to the Vosges.' Then they sent us  to Champagne for the big mill. We  started in the fight from a place jest  north of Swipes. .  "Well, we stah'ted up a hill dat  vyays. Then I says out loud, hopin'  the major would hear me. 'Why  doan dat man spread us out tirrail-  leur'���dat's what the French call a  skirmish line, you know���but the  officer didn't pay no 'tention to me.  Then all the fellahs stah'ted saying  the same thing, but the officer didn't  change his mind till he got good  and ready.  "But after a while he did order  us to spread out an' we sho did  obey. For, coming down dat hill,  was a whole arsenal full of machine  gun bullets, an'. rifle bullets, and  cannon balls'and chunks of dirt and  everything.  "The officer _ then told us to 'entrench and keep- our heads down,  but didn't need" to���our heads jest  natchully sagged all. by their own  selves.'  "Ever once in a while we'd up  and run forward. When we got to  the top the German's got skeered,  but we kept after them till finally we  got caught in a pocket, where we  had machine guns in- front of us an'  on both sides and shells bustin' in  the middle.  "Dat's where I got mine; they  told us to lay flat, and keep under  dem mitraileuse bullets���that's what  the French call a machine gun���but  I jest wanter say that you simply  cain't duck them bullets. They seem  to hop, skip and jump all round.  "When dat Jack Johnson hit me  in-lhe back, 'O Lawdy,' I said to  mahself, 'Ise earning dat one cent  a day, but the futuah looks mighty  dark.' "  "How many days were you in the  I asked.  "Jest a   little   po'tion of one'day  was enough to hold me," said John.  "What  other  Americans were in  the battle with you!"  "To tell the hones'truth, mistah,"  said Mr. Brown, "I didn't have the  time to look round and see. I was  too busy keepin' track of one frien'  of mine frbrn Boston."  Just then the nurse came in with  lunch.  "Dat am some food," cried John  wreathed in smiles. . "Jes smell dat  baco.nl If General Geoffry'll listen  lu me he can end dis war in half a  day. Jes set a million plates of dis  heah bacon along the top of de  French trenches an de Germans'll  jes nacherly crawl ovah an beg to  surrender.  "In the legion," he said, "tbey  have all sorts of cha'ms to bring  good luck, but I reckon the left  hind foot of a graveyard rabbit dat  we Americans   use is about the bes'  of all."  "What makes you think so?"  the  nurse asked.  "Lawzey me," replied. John. "Jes  smell dat bacon. An ah'm heah,  ain't Ah?" .  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH   IN   MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING   POSSIBILITIES-  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  1  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 mineral.fefo.us, 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 toriver and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the 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 k  situated the Bhoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles 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 of the 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.     The highways throughout the Boun-r  dary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  - -...No locality is better  served .with 'railroads  than   the  Boundary district.       A.t  present this section Is  served  by  two  of  the  greatest systems on the continent, the  ' G. P. R. and Great. Northern companies, while within a few months the route tothe  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the  new  K. V. V.  branch of the former.  I.O.O.F.

To- be healthy at seventy, prepare at
forty, is sound advice, because in the
strength of middle life we too often forget
.that neglected colds, or careless treat-
: jnent of slight aches and pains, simply
inidermine strength and bring chronic
weakness for later years.
To be stronger when older, keep your

Rev. A. D, MacLeod, of Hareourt,

"Really," he writes, "I knb- of
nothing like it! Having charge of an
extensive mission over which I travel
constantly,. I Tmeet with maqy^sjek
and afflicted people, and I have been
amazed at the good Zam-Buk is doing
daily. I have learned as an absolute
fact, that for bad ulcers, old wounds,
eczema, and skin diseases of all kinds,
the healing powers of Zam-Buk are
simply marvellous! For the painful
ailment piles, it is also excellent: If a
box of Zam-Buk could beg put into
every home, it would t save many a
doctor's bill." ■■'' .'»'*'
Here is.disinterested evidence, based
on the best and widest experience, of
tbe value of Zam-Buk. In the homes
of the people, from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, Zam-Buk is the most popular
balm. Why? Because in so many
cases it has proved a cure when all
else has failed; Zatn-Buk is a sure
cure for eczema, ulcers, abscesses, varicose veins, scalp sores, piles, cold sores,
cuts, burns, bruises, the eruptions^and
sores of babies and children, and al]
skin diseases and injuries. All druggists and stores sell at 50c box or postpaid from Zam-Buk Co,, Toronto, for

Geo. Rogers'has been dreaming of
ducks all week, or ever since he returned from   an automobile  trip  to
Osoyoos district, where in company
with   Ed.   Richter   he   was   slaying
ducks for a week.     George reports
the lakes  full' of  ducks, and claims
that the total casualty list amounted
to  52.    Grouse,   he declares,   were
far-too common to claim even attention.    Ducks  they  were   after 'and
ducks they got, although Alex. McKenzie has been making ridiculous
inquiries as^tq what Mr.'Rogers has
dotj'e with, the half-ton  of mallards'
that he claims to have laid low.
During, the trip they paid a visit
,to the ranch of the Okanagan Cattle company, and were given permission to hunt, providing they^con-
fined their.attention to nothing else
but duck. While on this particular
ranch, they were afforded an object
lesson on what can be done in the
line of game protection "We were
invited," says George, "to take up
a position -near a patch of alfalfa to
watch the game come out to feed,
and after waiting a little while, out
they came. Pheasants and quail by
the score, and among them we
counted fifteen deer at one time."
Mr. Richter, his companion, is a
trap shooter'of* wide repute, which
probably accounts for the big bag
that George claims he helped to
fill up.

about ten o'clock, the phenomena
increased in intensity up to midnight
when it began to die down. At

almost directly overhead, and resembled the huge beams
