Activities Are  In Progress On
Several Buildings In
The Town.
- Building activities begin in Chase
with the first hint of spring. February
weather thiB year is a trifle too cold for
anything very serious in that line. At
present work is confined chiefly to extensions and improvements on existing
W. F. Barnes is completing the building he used last summer as a carpenter
shop. Double doors and a glass front
look as if the place is destined for gentler uses than the making of doors and
windows. The location is a suitable one
for almost any kind of business.
R. P. Bradley is building an addition
to the rear of his Btore to make room
for the enlarged stock that is arriving
for the general' merchandise business
he wil| open up in a few days. The new
part is twenty by thirty feet, and will
be used for a Warehouse and workshop.
The original building is thirty by forty
feet so the completed structure will be
seventy feet deep from the street.
In residences the improvements take
the form of adding conveniences for the
months when we forget that the thermometer ever was below zero or the
water pipes ever froze up. Geo, Kyle
and Louis Land are each putting on a
verandah that will spell comfort on
summer afternoons.
The house on Sicamous avenue owned
by Mrs. Charles Olaen, formerly Mrs.
McBryan, is being enlarged to such an
extent as to make it practically a new
building. -: "���-'���
Late Pritchard News.
Some,.of our prominent citizens attended' the K. P. social in Chase on
. Tuesday evening.
The stores in this section are rushing
the times. Spring seeds are already
for sale; we take that as an indication
of early spring.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Martin drove to
Chase on Tuesday, returning the same
John Clegg and Andy Bond of Chase
spent Wednesday in this promising
On Tuesday, Basil Carr met With what
might have proved a serious'accident
While Mr. Carr was felling a tree, a dog
belonging to the family got crushed underneath, and on its master attempting
to release it he was bitten on the wrist.
Fortunately, Mr. Carr was working
close home, and the wounds were soon
cauterized. We are glad to report that
the patient is doing nicely.
Knights of Pythias and Their Friends
Spend an Enjoyable Evening
at Monthly Social.
The second of the evenings which the
Knights of Pythias at the beginning of
the winter decided to devote monthly
to cards and dancing fell on Tuesday of
this week. The proportions to which
the lodge has grown make its social
functions embrace half the town. The
entertainment committee are a bunch
of live wires all right for they learn
from one evening how to make the next
one even better,
The attendance was good on Tuesday
evening and the arrangements for a
good time were complete. Cards and
other games filled the first hour. Then
after a song by Mrs. Farris and a hum*
orouB reading by Mr. Harry Law, Past
Chancellor Bradley handed over the programme to Mr. Sainsbury as floor manager for the dance that with an intermission for supper lasted till after two
o'clock. The music by Mr. Gordon on
the violin and Miss Stewart on the piano
was easy to dance lo. These monthly
socials are becoming so popular that the
K. P. 's are adding rapidly to the list of
their lady friends.
5000 Facts About Canada.
The public will welcome the 1913 addition of "6000 Facts about Canada,"
compiled _y Frank Yeigh, the acknowledged authority on things Canadian and
the author of "Through the Heart of
Canada." Ten thousand copies are now
sold annually, which find their way all
over Canada and the Enipire.indeed the
"The Facts booklet is stuffed as full
of information as sausage is of meat,"
is the happy and true way an English
journal puts it, and the new issue, which
includes many new features and improvements, such as colored map of the
Dominion, presents a striking story of
the wonderful advance of Canada in a
single year.   We now talk in billions.
The booklet is issued at 26 cents a
copy, by the Canadian Facts Publishing
Co., 688 Huron Street, Toronto, and is
sold by all the leading newsdealers.
The Quality of Its Soil Will Make Pritchard
One of the Best Farming Districts
In The Interior.
See the Cowboys.
Some of the liveliest wild-west films
that ever caused an audience to grow
pale with excitement will be shown at
the opera house to-night and to-morrow
night. They have been in Kamloops
most of the week. According to the
reports they make the Calgary stampede
look like a Ladies' Aid afternoon tea.

History repeats itself. The story of
the west is the story of ihe discovery
that what were supposed to be only
grazing lands were the most fertile of
farms'if properly cultivated. That 1b
happening at Pritchard.
The new-comer will meet old settlers
ln the district who will tell him that the
country west of Shuswap is no good for
anything but a range for cattle unless
it is irrigated, and that irrigation on
any extensive scale is too expensive to
be practicable. That there are those
who disagree with him Is evidenced by
the continual influx of prospective
farmers into that same country. And
they are making good.
Perhaps no one ever believed in the
possibility of dry farming until the miracle was performed before his eyes. It
is probable that a large percentage of
tho bench and bottom lands around
Pritchard will eventually come under
irrigation,as a small percentage already
is, but in the meantime the ground will
not lie fallow.
The yearly precipitation at Pritchard,
is greater than at any point in central
Alberta, and on the benches back from
the river it is still heavier than along
the railway. Yet there are few more
productive sections of the continent
than Alberta. Some of the farmers in
the Pritchard district have made a study
of dry farming and their neighbours
will not be slow to profit by their example when they see the results. To
take a piece of ground that in most
moisture as to make it produce profitable
crops each season without fall takes
farmers with intelligence, farmers who
are not set on doing things the way
their grandfathers did.
But the farmers of Pritchard are taking
their work seriously. They are taking
advantage of all the facilities afforded
by both the Dominion and Provincial
governments to Increase their knowledge of the latest methods. They look
upon farming as a science, an art and a
business. In our day'it has become'all
Within ten miles of Pritchard as a
centre there aire not only thousands but
tens of thousands of acres of good land.
Probably 'even the most optimistic have
but a faint Vision of what is in stpre for
this favored locality. One thing is certain, it is destined in the not far distant future to carry a population running in the thousand, with a thriving
little town seated prosperous and secure
at its centre.
During the past year two stores and
a temperance hotel have been opened
at Pritchard siding. The freight shipped
from there runs Into a good many hundred cars per annum. The residents are
becoming urgent in their requests for a
station agent and for a bridge to connect the increasing number of settlers
on the north side of the river with the
railway, A recent advance step has
been the opening of a mail route from
Pritchard to Penintan. Those who keep
their eyes on Pritchard are due to see
years burns bare with the sun early minings happen there in the next year or
the summer and so conserve the natural two.
Will Hill.
There's more rhyme than poetry in
his name. If you want to know who he
is, he's the Quaker man who was in here
last week. He's not the silent sort of
Quaker man that waits for the spirit to
move him. He's out after the business.
He represanta the people who sell Quaker oats and all the other Quaker
His firm have recently purchased.a
flour mill in Saskatoon and they are going
to push their product in British Columbia. Just now Will Hill is doing the
pushing. While in Chase he sold a carload of Quaker flour to R. P. Bradley.
It will form part of the stock for the
general store that he intends to open up
in a few weeks.

A wireless station! That's the latest
of the modern conveniences tn this (up-
to-date town. It is sure modern enough
but so far isn't much of a convenience,
except for the experimenter In his shop
to get the call to dinner from the house
a few yards away.
Percy Weaver haa been putting in bis
spare time lately rigging up a despatching statioa^in his hopt and a receiving
station in the shed on the back of the
lot His materials for construction
were the bowels of burnt out transformers and other discarded electrical junk
that happened to be lying round. It is
this haphazard nature of the material
used that makes the achievement noteworthy.
On Wednesday, after much experimenting, the thing was ready for testing. With Andy McConnell on the receiving end a test message was de-
patched from the house. The dots
came through all right but the dashes
got tangled up in the trees. When a
detector that is on the way arrives the
apparatus will work for further orders,
The first order is in already. It is for
wireless equipment for one of the boats
of the Chaso fleet, the "P. D. Q. of
Chase." When the whole fleet is thus
equipped passengers will feel an added
sense of security in crossing to the
warehouse or going up to Celista for a
If You Can Shoot
Or think you can, get around to the
Underwood on Monday night at eight
o'clock and see what is doing. You'll
find a hot bunch of game sports with a
proposition to put up to you. And unless you're a dead one you'll bite. It's
a meeting to promote a gun club; not
the kind that holds one or two shoots
and then croaks, but a live club with
live men in it, that organizes to stay organized.
The meeting Is the sequel to the one
held Isst Monday night. It was there
that the plan was hatched, though a
few had been brooding over it for as
much as quite a while. The fathers of
it, or at least those who to date have
become members, are A. E. Underwood
Dr. Scatchard, C. L. Barker, F. E.
Gook, A. McConnell and E. A. McGoldrick. These elected from among their
number a competent staff of provisional
officers, It consists of E. A. McGoldrick. The staff can shoot some himself.
His favorite occupation between meals
is said to be throwing marbles in the
air and shooting them to pieces with a

A Growing Trade.
In a district where the price of coal
is comparatively high, and where wood
is plentiful, traffic in firewood promises
to become important. W. Louie has
found it profitable and is preparing to
carry on the business more extensively.
He is getting a scow built for carrying
wood from points along the lake to
The craft will be 62 feet long with a
18 foot beam, and will be propelled by a
26 horse power gas engine. The hull
will be three feet deep and decked in
tight on top, and the scow will carry all
ita cargo above the deck. The propeller
will be geared so that it can be raised
in shallow water and lowered in a rough
sea. The capacity of the boat will be
about 86 cords of wood.
H. A. Fowler of Celista is building
the scow and the contract calls for delivery ln May.
Wood retails in Kamloops at six dollars a cord. Mr. Louie has been at
work this winter selling and sawing
what he rafted down last fall. He has
6000 cords to cut on his own place in
Niskonlith Valley, which he believes
will pay for the clearing of the land.
Mr. Levi is a kind hearted, conscientious man, an example of what Maeterlinck calls "our anxious morality."
But he is also German, and spends the
pennies hard. He has a hired man who
says, "Mr. Levi's queer; he wants me
to work all the time he has me hired
for." Mr. Levi also has a young horse
that balks. "If you would just let me
take a whip to him once!" the hired
man expostulated, exasperated and yet
dominated by the other's point of view.
Mr. Levi looked at him uneasily; stood
first on one foot, and then on the other.
"Ain't there nothin' else you could be
doln?" he asked, "till he gets ready to

There's something rotten in the farming conditions in British
Columbia. It is hart) to tell just where the rot is located Imt most
likely it is in several places near tbe surface nnd nit at the core. Il
may be, indeed, that tunny of the conditions that appear hard are nil
right in themselves and will become helpful if the farmers will adjust
their business to the circumstances.
If the present low prices of some productB will lend ns to see the
error, of our ways and drive ns into selling pork and beef and eggs and
butter instead of hay and grnin and potatoes, the final result will lie
good. Helling grain and potatoes iB selling raw material, while beef
and pork are manufactured articles. Every farmer must farm accord,
ing to the local conditions imposed on liim, but in general the more
finished he can make his product the better. Sometimes it will pay
best to sell the raw material; it means less work on the farm and a
consequent cutting down of the wagebill. In most instances,*however,
it pays in the long run to do ns much work on the farm as possible.
The farm should be something of a factory.
This spring there are thousands of tons ut potatoes in the country
that will not be used. Big iu bulk and small in value, they cannot be
handled at a profit. The smaller the bulk of any product in proportion to its value the better is the chance of fiti'Mug a market A pound
of butter can afford to go farther in search of its consumer than can a
bushel of potutoeB. Tho finished product is a better traveller than the
raw material, and, other things being equal, deserves a preference
from the business farmer.
The following extract from the report of the Chief Forester in the
Forestry Branch of the Department of Lauds contains information of
interest to all who value our iiumeuse timber resources;
"The Chief Forester observes thut in the nuture of the country it is almost impossible to extinguish tires in many parts of the
Province without tome menus of getting men quickly ou the
ground. To this end trails, telephone lines, tool Cliches, and
ranger cabins are absolutely necessary. He regards a total mileage
of 295 miles of telephone lines und 10- miles of trails as intlis-
pensible for the.coining year, and urges for construction iu the
very near future an additional 1020 miles of telephone line. Work
on cabins and too) caches iB to begin almost immediately. Already
bids have been asked on six launches for coast patrol and two for
the Kootenay und Arrow lakes.
"The creation of forest reserves in which permanent im
provements for the protection und harvesting of the timber can
be piade, is strongly recommended. In many districts these reserves nre of most consequence in equalizing the flow of water
needed for irrigation.
" One of the moBt important duties of the Forest Branch iB
to investigate the lands which are supposed to be covered with
timber und to report upon those which nre more fit for agricultural crop* than for trees. To this end, and to secure accurate
data upon the extent of timber, the necessity for permanent iui
provements, etc., there wire placed in the field last year twelve pur*
ties of reconnaissance surveyors, who covered 4,700 square miles,
and nre now Bending in their returns to Victoria,"

The principal of tho school has asked us to give publicity to the
fact that the law requires every child from the a^es of 7 to 14 inclusive
to attend school every school day during the year during school hours,
the only excuse being illness or other unavoidable absence. The law
requires an excuse hik! the excuse must be of such a nature ns to be
valid nnd the penalty for the first offence in this regard is $5.00 nnd
every subsequent one $10.00, There is no excuse for parents keeping
tlieir children home unless for sickness or other serious cause and it is
so tlieir own advantage to send them to school where they can with
practically no cost enable them to have an education second to none iu
the world, aud to deprive a child of ils scholastic training is abusing
the privilege and duty of a parent, besides handicapping the child in
its future career.���Kamloop. Standard.
