The cost of its-  copper averaged 10.66 cents per lb.  and a net profit of 929,165 dollar*  was earned." -!  Reference    to   Granby's   balance  sheet brings   to   light   the  fat that  amount to 9,205,837 tons of 2.2 per  cent o"re   (44   pounds   of copper per  ton) at Hidden  Creek, 414,775 tons  of 2.6 per  cent ore  at the Bonanza  mine   -in    the    same   district,    and  4,232,405 tons   of ore  in the Phoenix  property from which  later   it is  estimated that~a   recovery of 17lbs.  of copper per ton can be made.     In  addition to Copper the Phoenix ores-  yield   from 75 "to   85"cents and the  Our Patriotic Bazaar  The preparations for the forth,  corning bazaar are proceeding apace,'  'And every effort is being put forward by the ladies to make the  event the success it deserves to be.

The  annual interest on these bonds  at  6 per cent calls  for only $203,400.  At the  end of the  fiscal year Granby's net balance of current cash and  quick assets  was $1,660,228.    Apparently this was approximately sufficient  for  working  capital,   as its  current   indebtedness   of  $664,680  was made  up  chiefly  of $180,663  of   wage   account,   and ��� $431,619  which it owed on supplies.  In discussing the Hidden'Creek  smelter, General'Manager Sylvester  says that while it was originally designed to treat two thousand tons  of ore per day.Hhe addition of the  fourth furnace and appliances for  taking care of flue dust will undoubtedly raised the normal output  of this plant, fifty"'per cent. Since  this report was published the Hidden Cfeekrplant has ntad^a new record with a production of slightly  more than four million pounds of  copper in one.mopjth, and this indicates that its' original capacity has  already been exceeded by, approximately- one hundred per cent.

The car  was at once   stopped, and  Dan Buchanan and D. J. Matheson  advanced on an individual who was  seen   close   by  excitedly   w'aving a  rifle   and   inviting  all  the Germans  in France to "come on."    The situation   was   critical, so a resort was  made to  strategy.     "Have you   an  axe you could  lend us?" politely inquired the mayor (he really intended  toaskfora feather duster).   "Sure,"  replied    the   enemy   of   the   Huns.  "I'll go   and   get one," and suiting  the action   to   the word   he laid the  rifle on the ground went  to get the  axe.     The   couple   then pounced on  the weapon   and   later   the   four  of  them jumped on the man. who afterwards was turned loose, minus his  rifle.   The other motorists were Jim  Hughes,   of the   local   bank   staff,  and J. Mulligan, police magistrate.  Chance For B.C. Trappers  Mr. Congdon, a well-known Dawson   lawyer,   who  has.' come down  recently   from   the north,  says that  "quartz mining   in the Yukon territory  is showing considerable activity.    A  property   which    has   been  showing very excellent results, and  on which  development is progressing satisfactorily; is on Indian river.  At another property, on Bear creek,  they have a ten-stamp mill in operation,   and  contemplate the expenditure   of $30,000 this  winter on development.     In  the   Stewart  country there are some exceptionally fine  silver   properties, and the   old   trail  of Dr.   Dawson,   by way of Dease  river   and     Francis   lake    is   being  largely explored."    In the matter of  placer mining,  Mr.   Congdon stated  that the "strike" on Rude creek was  genuine and  caused quite  a deal of  excitement.     The results went $1.50  to the cubic foot in a test of ground  measuring   7,5 feet  by several hundreds in length.    It was what might  be called a   poor man's proposition.  Parcels For Prisoners  Parcel Social  In a recent article, A. B. Shubert,  president of A. B. Shubert, Inc.,  Chicago, the largest house in 'the  world, dealing in raw furs, states  that the reasons underlying th  present great demand for furs is  Even   the   Commissioner- of^Doi.lenormousl3f -  increased     purchasing  The postmaster-general draws the  attention of the public to the large  number of parcels "for prisoners on  hand that have been found unfit to  be forwarded. The trouble, he points  out is due to poor packing. The  parcels are not packed tightly  enough. ,  All  parcels  should   be  as nearly  round as possible, and the contents  should be well padded with shavings,  crumpled paper, or some other simi- '  lar protective material.  The outer covering should consist of strong linen, calico, or canvas, or other textile material, and  should be securely sewn up.  As an alternative, parcels may be  packed in ��� boxes made of strong  double-corrugated cardboard or else  strawboard. "^   .  Parcels merely wrapped in paper,  or packed in thin cardboard boxes,  such as shoe boxes, cannot be accepted.  No perishable articles may be  sent, and anything likely to become  soft or sticky, such as chocolate and  candies, should be packed in tins.  The above rules apply equally to  those for soldiers in any of the firing lines.  i A  A very successful   "parcel social"  was held  in the   rooms of the Scan-'  dinavian   hall,    last   Friday   week.  The  affair   was   promoted    by   the  members ,of Fjellrosen   Lodge, the  women's, auxiliary of the S.H. and       The   current issue  of-the ,Nicola   >~  E.F.     -      -    -    -  Recovering From Wounds  Lojpis Carlson was appointed!

Lake is 17j4 to 18^ cents and electrolytic is 17$i to 18 cents a pound.  While a considerable tonnage was  sold for export two or three weeks  ago, the foreign buying demand has  been somewhat disappointing.

The  officer commanding, Lieut.-Colonel  Ross, has recently been in consultation with Sir Sam Hughes. Seven  hundred men are required to bring  the battalion up to war strength.  The prevailing rate of output of  the B.C. Copper Co., according to  an official statement, is 350,000 lbs.  of blister copper monthly, with the  smelter working at one-third capacity.

Visiting brethren  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH  IN   MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING   POSSIBILITIES���  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  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 rriineraliferous, containing- gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there  are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal. f/  FOREST A!^D JVSBWERAL 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  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 is  | situated the Bhoenix and Grand  Porks properties of the Granby Consolidated, to-  gether with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, and  '������ lk ..       . '���''���'  surrounding it for miles on all  sides, are acres of cro.wn-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 Boundary makes this section of the, province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads. -  Kr\o localityis. better  served  witr^railroads  than   the  Boundary district.

A German correspondent says "the Serbian troops rarely surrender, even in hand-to-hand  encounters. They fight until the  last possible moment. Thus there  are enacted in these battles horrible  scenes of the wildest fighting unparalleled on any other front."  General Alexeieff, the new Rus  sian chief of staff, is one of the few  Russian military commanders who  have risen to high rank from very  humble circumstances. His mother  was an Armenian and his father a  poor Russian peasant. He was first  an officer in the navy, in which service he became notorious through  his opposition to the use of liquor  by the sailors.  Robert McClure, a ranchman of  New South Wales, has left the  whole of his fortune of $50,000 to a  Mrs. Wareham, of Golcar, Yorkshire. McClure was with the Australian troops who repulsed the  Turkish attack on the Suez Canal,  in which action he was wounded  and afterwards taken to England.  The lady, whose husband is at the  front, paid visits to the hospital,  and did McClure some small services  which evidently he remembered before he died.
