Martin "Prairie   farmers'   Institute
Holds Successful Meeting and
Elects Officers for year.
The annual meeting of the Martin
Prairie Farmers' Institute was held in
the schoolhouse on Monday evening,
Jan. 13, for the purpose of receiving
and passing upon reports and the election of officers and directors. There
were about fifty members present, including a number of ladies. The business did not occupy the whole of the
time.   Remembering  that discussions
Country Social Life.
It has been the fashion to say that
farm life was so burdensome and so
lacking in social relief that farm.wives
were crowding our insane asylums. We
have recent reports from two of these
asylums, one at Binghamton, New York
and the other from Orange County, land

forty-five per cent from all the villages
and hamlets and farm sections together.
Out of a total of sixty-four committed
for delirium tremens there were two
farmers and two farm laborers. Dr.
Woodman says that the pathetic accounts concerning farmers' wives driven
by hard life to insanity or suicide are
imaginary. Only two farmers wives
are found in a group of thirty-seven,
and in both of these cases farming had
been given up some time previous, and
the women with their families were liv-

fully provided refreshments which found
a welcome place at the end of the programme.
The election of officers and directors
resulted as   follows;
President, Wm. Harrison, Pritchard
Vice-President, Hugh Sinclair, Pritchard
Secretary���Treasurer J. Gordon Fra-
W. Charlton, Duck Range
C. D. Burrell, Pritchard
R. H. Brett, Pritchard
A. B. Boyde, Pritchard
W. P. Pritchard, Pritchard
Auditors:J. H.McDermjd, Ed. Milne.
Delegate to Central Institute, R. H.
Brett, alternate, Wm. Harrison.
It was decided to hold at Pritchrrd
next fall an exhibition of agricultural
and horticultural products under the
auspices of the Institute. The district
embraced would include the country extending north and south from Back
Valley to Grand Prairie and east and
west from Squilax to Ducks. The aim,
it is stated, is to make the exhibition
an annual affair, to be held at various
places along the railway within the district, at Pritchard, Shuswap, Ducks nnd
It is considered that the large membership of the Institute, numbering
last year 113, and the extent and fertility of the country it is designed to
serve make the foregoing move a wise
one. There is nothing better calculated
to bring a farming district favorably before the public than a well managed
and creditable exhibit of agricultural
products. It is to be hoped that this
venture of the Martin Prairie Farmers'
Institute will be the beginning of one
of the best agricultural lairs in the interior.

cord the fact that farm life at the present time has less of isolation and leas
of unrelieved labor than any town or
city occupation. The free mail delivery
and the rural telephone unite to brighten
the most hidden homestead, and to bring
into social relations the most scattered
populations. Our farmers buy and sell
by telephone; and our farmers' wives
visit by telephone. The country is lonesome only to those who do not know
anything about vegetable life or animal
life, and this can easily be acquired by
mothers and daughters. The herd instinct belongs only to the very cheapest
class of untrained minds.���Exchange
Three New Members Are Elected.   Enquiries
Are Received from Persons Wishing

The Polyglot Bird.
OToole was passing a bird store when
this sign caught his eye:
"Step in.   A  Bargain To-day.   An
Elegant Poll Parrot Which Speaks Seven
Languages, for Sale."
O'Toole went in. "What areyeaskin,
for the bird?" he asked.
' 'One dollar, and it's a sacrifice.'' said
the dealer.
"You're on, "said O'Toole. "Put the
beast in a cage and send it out to Mrs.
0,Toole, to the Shamrock Apartments
on the Drive." Then he continued on
his way to work. He could hardly wait
to get home, so anxious was he to try
the parrot out on the language thing,
md when the whistle blew he was the
iirat man out. Running home, he rushed in upon his wife and exclaimed, with
face aglow: "Did the bird come, Illin?"
"It did Dinny, and it's stuffed, baked
and ready for ye, but I'm tellin' ye,
Dinny, there's no more than a pick on
the thing."
"Ye cooked it?" screamed O'Toole.
'Sure," said Mrs. O'Toole.
"'Twasn't to be killed, Illin," cried
0,Toole. "Sure, the poor green thing

Pat Burns Burned Out.
Calgary, Jan. 13,���The great packing
plant of P. Burns & Company, largest
institution of its kind in the west was
practially totally destroyed by fire yesterday. At a late hour this morning tho
fire was still raging. The loss will ho
in the neighborhood of $1,500,000. It is
understood that the stock alone was insured for more than ��1.000,000,
The loss is a most serious one in more
than one respect. A very large proportion of the meat supply of the west
was in cold storage in the Burns' plant
There are other packing plants in the
various western cities, but the Burnii'
dwarfed its competitors. Meat was
shipped from the Burns' abattoir to
nearly every city and town in Alberta
and British Columbia.
The Burns' plant was an institution
with a history. It represented the life
work of the genius of one man, who
came to Calgary when the land was
youug, practically without means, and
who by his thrift, ability and foresight,
built up about him one of the great independent meat industries of North
America, and incidentally a fortune that
iB estimated anywhere from $10,000,000

"Ladies and Gentlemen���By the request of the chairman of the committee I
beg leave to introduce to you the reader
of the evening, a gentleman whose great
learning, whose historical accuracy,
whose devotion to science and whose
veneration for the truth are only equal
led by his moral character and his majestic presence. I allude in these vague
and general terms to myself. I am a
little opposed to the custom of ceremoniously introducing a reader to the
audience, because it seems unnecessary
where the man has been properly advertised. But, as it the custom, I prefer to make it myself���in my own case
and then I can rely on getting in all the
facts! I never had but one introduction
that seemed to me just the thing, and
the gentleman was not acquainted with
me and there was no nonsense. He said
'Ladies and Gentlemen���I shall waste
no time in this introduction. I know
of only two facts about this man first,
he never has been in state prison, and
second, I can't imagine why!' "

Colorado Springs, Colo., Jan. 3. 1913.
To Whom It May Concern:
The undersigned, ex-patients of the
M. W. of A. Sanatorium at Woodmen,!
Colo., desire to make this statement in
order to anticipate any statement that
may be made by the superintendent of
said institution and to set ourselves
right with our respective camps and the
general public. On New Year's eve.
the general spirit of the joyous season
permeated the colonies and the patients
good-naturedly were indulging in the
pranks usual to such a season and where
red-blooded men are assembled, but
there was nothing unseemly or reckless
perpetrated and none of the neighbors
were under the influence of alcoholics���
simply driving dull care and homesick-
ness away in anticipation of the coming
of the new year. Some of the undersigned were not even participants in
the pleasures of the evening, and one of
us had been a patient there for ten
months, this fact testifying to his good
behavior while theie. Technically all of
ub were violating the rule that has always been more honored in the breach
than in the observance, that requires
each patient to be in his tent at 9 p.
and the superintendent, without giving
any of us an opportunity for a hearing,
which is a procedure in all decent and
civilized communities, summarily dismissed UB from the itstitution, in spite
of tlie fact Lhat we were far from home
and friends and utterly inconsiderate of
the fact that it is the dead of winter,
and would not oven allow us to remain
for dinner, in his anger declaring that
if we could not get the regular auto,
we could send for a car from the city,
12 miles away. Wt do not desire to escape any blame, if there he any, in
connection with our alleged violation of
9 o'clock rule, and do not deny that
some of us participated in the harmless
pranks of the huppy evening, but we
wish to Bay that if the action of the
superintendent in thus summarily discharging us with so trivial an excuse ia
an exemplification of the broad humani-
tarianism that is supposed to characterize this institution, then we have an-:
other guess coming as to the meaning
of that term. The M. W. of A. Sanatorium is a grand institution, but it is
sadly in need of management that is
capable of treating all patieiiu impartially and alike, and that is :<ipable
of dealing out justice with a merciful
and discerning hand, and this need can
he verified by dozens of patients who
have received treatment there since the
present   management took hold.   Our
Hope Deferred.
Sorrow haa filled the hearts of the
hockey fans. The rink so long looked
forward to has ice on it at last, heaps of
ice, but it doesn't lend itself 0 the
practice of the gentle same uf hockey.
It happened this wajr. The enjfcr-
prising proprietor had engaged a gentleman of leisure to spend th* mVM in the
open and keep a hose playflfg. \ on
fiie surface of she lee thai, w^ ,_^ h��. ""
'l'he watchman fixed the ftbaeyB throw
a spray across the rink and retired to
his fire under the tree, inspecting at
times to see that the enclosure did not
overflow. So far as he could see by
the light of his lantern all was going
But the light of day told a different
story. The spray had frozen as it fell
and had formed a broad wall of ice
several feet high and looked just enough
tike the ice bridge at the foot of Niagara Falls to remind you of it.
The weary watchman made good his
escape long before his employer arrived
and to time of going to press has not
returned. McLean is a plain spoken
man and calls a spade a spade, but the
Tribune is not allowed to tell you what
he called Red when he saw that wall
of ice across the middle of his rink.

"Should you advise me to marry?"
the callow youth asked the wise man.
Whether you marry or not, "replied the
sage, "you will regret it." Nearly
everything we do we secretly wish we
hadn't. It we buy steak for dinner we
wonder if a chop would not have suited
better; the blue gown we ordered comes
home and we could shake ourselves for
not choosing grey; no sooner is the long
coveted carpet laid down than we see
the immense advantage of a stained
floor with rugs.
Our regretB also cover our unwilling
choices when what we wanted was beyond our grasp. We never liked ash
furniture but we bought it because we
could not afford oak. A tailored-made
broadcloth was impossible so we wear
ready-made serge. All our lives we
adored tall, dark men but our evil
genius decreed we should have a fat
husband with sandy complexion or no
husband at all.
The imp of the perverse also shows
his mean little head where we have no
voluntary choice. Why were we not
born rich? Oh! the pity of it that we
must hike through life with a turned up
nose and a double chin! And the baby���
bless his heart���why should the darling
have red hair and a squint?
Other people please us no better than
we please ourselves. They open windows
when we are Bhivering and close them
when we feel as if we should suffocate.
They are neither stupidly dull or they
talk too much. They either eat with
knives or they set our nerves on edge
with their fastidiousness.
The weather rarely accommodates us.
Either the drought parches the garden
or the rain falls on our new hats. A
fine day presages a storm. When it is
not too cold for comfort it is usually too
0 wretched mortals that we are, what
shall deliver us from the body of these
dissatisfactions? What but our saving
common sense, prompting us to make
the better of things as they are? Common Bense, as tlie words signify, belongs to us all by right. It is the
faculty for perceiving in the word, act,
or circumstances. When we meet a
persorf Without it we do not excuse him.
We aP-clude that,either In; has sinned

A Cauuc
ua Editori
There has been a good deal in the
papers of late about the Canadian navl
policy, and s'pose everybody is waiting
to hear what the Bugle has to say upon
this momentous question. The Borden
naval policy doesn't interest us a bit as
we never had any use for war. It's true
that we do hold a medal awarded us for
active service during the Rebellion of
'85 when by strategical tactics and a
quick move we saved ourselves from
falling into the hands of the-Indians.
But that fact don't have no effect on
our independent mind. We was against
the Laurler navy, too; though holding a
gov. job, we didn't say much for fear
of embarrssBing the ministry. We've
decided to give no opinion until we see
which side is going to win in this naval
fight���the ins or the outs. Then it's
possible the Bugle may decide to support the ins. The duty of the editor of
an influential journal like the Bugle, aa
we see it, is to be free, independent,
untrammeled and unapproachable until
these hefty questions are settled, and
then, in the interests of pt*ace and the
country, to support the side that can
give us the most. This is the course
consistently followed by Southern's papers for years, and seems to work out
good for the editors. But politics, aa
we have said before, is beyond our
visions. We never did undeistand 'em;
but our patriotic duty to our beloved
country has ever pointed to us the
wiBdom of newspapers of the high stand
ing and influential character of the
Bugle saying nothing that might be
construed as antagonistic to the public
policy of the administration when the
editor holds an honorable civil service
appointment under the government of
the day.-The Bowtown Bugle in the
Calgary News-Telegram.
who is "disappointed in life," They
are crowded out by the people who are
determined to make life yield something
besides disappointment.
A confirmed grouch is an exception.
We mortals keep up our spirits because
we know that we have a genius for
making our affairs turn out well. We
are Jack-in-the-boxes, and tiiough the
weight of adversity may press hard upon us the lid no sooner lifts than we
bob up, grinning.
Life is full of compensations. What
we lose on one count we gain on another. The fat husband is kind and
faithful. The little house has peculiar
cosiness. Cold weather braces the
health. The pup-nosed child turns out
a genius. Invisible hands hold the
scales  and when   we pause to consider
we acknowledge   that t,he  weighing is

and a song,

Alfalfa On Small Farms.
An acre of alfalfa will yield each year
from four to six t ns of hay that is
worth more for feed than any other
kind of hay that can be grown. In the
market it brings kpc '*.ai timothy or
clover; last year i. .i.;.' lor :"rom twenty-
five to thirty dollars a ton in the markets
of central and eastern United States.
Allalfft will produce Uwa three to aix
cuttings that average from a ton to a
ton and a half an acre. North of the
fortieth degree of latitude it is seldom
advisable to cut alfalia more than three
times each season. But in the southern
StateB, and particularly in the irrigated
hinds of the Southwest, alfalfa is frequently cut five and ��ix times every
Alfalfa is no new plant, aB is commonly supposed. Columbia, the Roman
agricultural writer, described it two
thousand years ago in terms that would
satisfy the most enthusiastic alfalfa-
grower of the present day.
Besides growing so abundantly, alfalfa
increases the fertility of the land on
which it is grown bo that the ground
will produce larger yields of other crops
after alfalfa than it would before.
That is partly because alfalfa is very
deep-rooted; it often goes down four
and five feet into the ground for its food
supply, and draws it from greater depths
than other plants. Eut more important still is the fact that it is a clover,
and has the valuable power of taking
the free nitrogen of the air and using
it in building up its own tissues.
Alfalfa, however, is more difficult,to
grow than other crops. ThOTS""~are
certain things that alfalfa must have.
First, the land on which it is grown
must be welt drained. Second, the soil
must not be deficient in lime. Third,
the particular kind of bacteria that
grow on the roots of alfalfa and take
the free nitrogen from the air must be
present in the soil. In land on which
alfalfa has never been raised, and especially in communities where the plant
has never been grown, the land will
probably have to be inoculated with the
right kind of bacteria in order to make
alfalfu-growing successful. This is
most easily done by getting soil from a
field m which alfalfa has been growing,
and spreading it on the field'on which
the alfalfa is to be sown at the rate of
three hundred pounds of soil to the
The three things to be done to insure
success in a'falfa-growing ��� are to drain
the hind thoroughly, lime the soil at the
rate of one thousand or more pounds of
lime to the aere,���in case there is ai:y
sign of acidity of the soil, which will
indicatediby difficulty iA gr^ing
mon red (lover, ^-and lastly #W(iiocu|
the field with soil from an old alfalfa-
field. When these three things have
been done, alfalfa should grow on any
land that will grow corn.
To the village farmer who farms an
acre or two and keeps a cow, and possibly a horse, alfalfa offers the greatest
returns. One acre will give him enough
to keep three cows for six months; and
when fed alfalfa hay they will need little
grain in addition. For poultry there is
no better feed than chopped alfalfa hay
mixed in their mashes.
Besides furnishing large quantities of
valuable feed, alfalfa is an ideal crop to
grow on the home acre in rotation with
the vegetable-garden. Let one-half of
the ground be sown with alfalfa, and
the other half planted to vegetables.
The alfalfa may remain four years, and
then the ground should be plowed and
planted to vegetables, while the other
half is sown to alfalfa for four years.
Under this arrangement the vegetable-
garden will grow better all the time.
The Ideal way to seed alfalfa is to
sow it after a crop of early potatoes,
peas, beets, or other early vegetables.
The land should be thoroughly prepared,
and worked as smooth as possible. During the last half of July or the first of
August it should be sown at the rate of
twenty pounds of seeds to the acre.
The seed should he broadcasted and the
ground harrowed lightly to cover the
seed. If the season is favorable, the
plant will make enough to occupy all
the ground by winter, and the following
year they will begin to yield their three
to six crops of hay.���Ex,

Time wa. when a farmer was a clod hopper and was engaged in an
occupation that called for about the same amount of skill and intelligence
at the digging of a ditch. Tbat day is past. Farming iB becoming a
learned profession. The up-to-date farmer now-a-days in talking about
his work usee big words that mean nothing lo the uninitiated. He talks
learnedly about the distribution of soil moisture, flocculatioti of soil
particles, the innocnlation of soils, and a lot more things that are Greek
to yon unless you happen to bt a twentieth century farmer.
To-day farming offers an interesting career to an ambitious young
man. It will give him a chance to use all the brains that nature has
given him and all the muscle as well. Book learning without practical
experience will not make a farmer any more than it will a mechanical
engineer, but it i. a part of his training for all that.
Of course there are still some kind, of farming iu which a good
living can be made witb no other equipment than land, machinery, and
an indn.trioug um of brute force. That is all, for instance, tint is needed to raise wheat on a virgin prairie. Even less thuu that suffices in
tome tropical countries where the happy native can lie under a tree and
eat the fruit a. it drops within reach of his hand.
Neither of these operations is farming in the modern sense of the
word. Most lands yield a generous return only to intelligent treatment,
The professional farmer is a Btudent of the composition of soils, of the
.(���-stability of crops to his particular soil and climate, of markets and
their'demand., and of the problems of transportation. These'und other
problems tax the ability of the best endowed minds.
When, in the country where farming i. subject to such complex con
ditionsas it i. in the interior of British Columbia, any community rap-
'fitly forges its way to tin* front as tlie home of successful agriculture, it
usually menus tlmt it possesses at least a few men who look upon farming as both a business and a profession.
Two hundred and sixty thousand books were borrowed at the
Vancouver public library in 1912. Free libraries are one point thnt
the city scores against the country. Tin free travelling libraries provided by the government for the rural districts of British (Johiinliin, while
perhaps nil that such n library can well be, do not contain the latest
books we nil want to rend,
A dozen and a half Chnse renders have adopted a plan that might
be extended, Each of ihe number buys one book of his own selection,
pnsBes his money .und name of the desired book to the secretary of the
club. He rends his own book first and then passe, it on to the next
|ierson on the list. The books nre paused on a But day each week and
at the end of eighteen weeks each member's own book comes round to
him again.   He has rend eighteen of the latest liooks  by buying one.
The advantage over the ordinary circulating library of the book,
stores is that the books nre of tbe very latest published. You read them
while the reviews of tlimn urn appearing in the press nnd hnvenehnnoe
-to compare yonr judgment of them with that of the reviewers.
The present club is, about ns large ns etui be worked to udvautuge,
but there is know reason why there should not be more thnn one such

The Anierieui! *!i'spnti*hi*s i.nve had a guoil deal to say within the
past few days about the t tirenient of Senator Bailey of Texas. He is
a man of very '������������ r.'.rknble ability who up till quite recently was l>e-
lieved to have qni'i> n career in store for him, miiny saying eonndently
that he wns of Presidential timber. He is still young, mid thnt career
may lie resumed, bnt for some reason or other hi* popularity has lieen
waning in his own state just nt the time when bis parly wns liecoiniiig
once more the dominant force iu national polities.
The story of ihe way he sprang into prominence deserves to rank
with that of Brynu.. "CrosB of Hold" speech.
He hud just moved from Mississippi to Texasand|wa. quite unknown
there when a convention wa. held to nominate a man for Congress.
He had not the price of a railway ticket and decided to walk to the place
of meeting, On the way a farmer gave him a lift. The talk getting
round to the convention, to which the farmer was Ixnind, he told hiui
that t .ere would be a rattling good speaker there named Bailey and he
proposed that when either got a chance he should call on this spellbinder for a speech.
When the time eame to make a nomination, thtre was a deadlock.
The fanner yelled "Btiley!" and his young friend of the morning
stepped to the platform. His speech created such an impression that
he was immediately taken up as a compromise candidate. He declined
it, remaining loyal to the mini for whom he hud spoken. But the stampeded convention insisted. Then he urged that he waB not yet twenty
five years of age aud could not therefore sit iu Congress. But eventually tbe discovery wus made that hu would lie twenty live befora election
day. He yielded and has been in Congress ever since, tint in tbe
House of Representatives and later, in the Semite.
Senator Bailey was always deadly in earnest and never minced any
words in stating his opinions. The result wus that his speeches always
made good newspaper reading. But the chances are that they made
many enemies for him and that this is responsible for his temporary
Millionaire Rockefeller ha. made a bad start for l!ll_. Ever since
the new year morning broke he has been dodging the sheriff. There
isn't much use iu being a millionaire unless he can buy nil the sheriffs
he wants. The mental picture of Rockefeller stealing out of hi. house
at break of day and travelling under nn alias should be u source of
comfort to a mau earning twenty-live dollars a week.���Calgary Herald,

Chase has all the advantage.; thai go to tha
making of a great manufacturing centre.
wi   �����/   Ui
First of all there is it's location.
Chase is situated at the ouilet of a system of
lakes that tap a country rkjh in raw material.
There is cedar, fir, pine and spruce timber running
into billion- of feet. There are limestone and marble,
copper, zinc and gold in quantities that are just
beginning to be discovered, and appreciated. There
Is the farm land to feed with vegetables and fruit
a large manufacturing population.
The vast wheatfields of the northwest provinces
supply the breadstuffs, at the same time that they
furnish one of the  best  markets   in  the   world   for
manufactured  products.

,~'l ^rf)tfwng^tt��^gerieral pastime in town
these days, \nd seems to be enjoyed by
all the yoifng people but our night
operator, wfco not being satisfied with
the ice took to the water, and after a
few duckings managed to reach the
shore. By that time he was both ice
and water, and he reports the water being just as cold aa it is wet these days.
We are at last going to get that
much and long coveted bridge to connect us with our friends across the
river. A carload of material has arrived, and unloaded. Other material is
on its way and aasoon as the pile driver
arrives operations will commence. This
is what we have been needing for years
pasl and it should greatly improve
business and traveling conditions to
Shuswap and territory.

here this year. The crossing was made
Friday morning.
A meeting of the Martin Prairie
Farmers' Institute was held in the
Martin Prairie school house on Monday
evening. An extended account of it
appears in another column.
P. W. Cober of this place left on
Friday of last week for the coast, where
he will spend the winter. Here is hoping that you will enjoy the Vancouver
rainB this winter and that you will be
with us at Pritchard again in the spring.
Chaa. Parker of Pemberton Range is
building an addition to his house. In
consideration of the fact that Mr. Parker is a bachelor we must state that his
actions are rather suspicious. Can it
be that we are going to have another
Benedict in the vicinity of Pritchard?
Percival and Basil Carr, who have
been spending several weeks with their
parents here, have received word that
the survey party with which they spent
the greater part of last summer is
again to ' begin operations near Notch
Hill. The boys expect to have to return to duty in a few days.

nursing bottle or a threshing machine.
Mr. Pritchard has our good wishes for
his success and we hope that he will
prosper in his new venture.

I Some of the thermometer* around
| here registered 24 degrees below lero
| Sunday night. As we sat around the!
stove and shivered we thanked the Lord
i that we were not on earth before wool-
I len clothes were invented. Our forefather
��� Adam must have presented a pitiful
| sight as he hobbled through the snow
j with i suit of fleece lined fig leaves on.
I Received too late for insertion last week.
Mrs. Robt. Bell of PinanUn left for
the coast during the week to visit her
daughter in Vancouver.
Thomas Hill of Ducks shipped a carload of cordwood during the fore part
of the week.
According to the number of engagements reported there must be an epidemic of Pupis affection It iB prevalent
around here. As marriage is the only
known remedy we may look forward to
a great demand for marriage licenses
in 1913.
Robert Leggit of Watmore tried
walking on water last Monday. He got
along fine until his faith gave out and
then he had to swim for the shore. He
was eventually pulled out on the Bhore
in a much waterlogged condition, but
except for a handful of Band in his gills
he was otherwise unmarred.
The hotel license that was expected
to decorate the wall of the hotel here is
a dream of the past, as tne artists who
mould laws in the factory at Victoria
have decided that a hotel license cannot
be granted until a telephone operator
camps in the depot here. So until that
happens this section of the country will
still remain in the dry belt.
Difficulty is experienced in cussing
.the river these days on account of ice
clinging to the shoreB. The Back Valley mail carrier was forced to go up
river several miles on Friday last to
find a crossing as the boats down the
line were all frozen in. If in the near
future the government doesn't put in a
bridge there will be a chance of it being
arrested for cruelty to ranchers, and
that's a serious charge.
A party of our young hopefuls, consisting of five girls and three young
men, drove over to Back Valley Sunday
afternoon, returning in the early morning of the next day. The trip up to
the Valley was uneventful, but on the
return journey the driver became engaged in more interesting pursuits than
keeping the team on the right road and
the horses took a short cut through the
primeval forest for the nearest haystack. They had followed a strange
road for some distance before the ec-
cupants of the sleigh discovered 'anything amiss, When, trying to turn around,
they broke the sleigh, several of the
commandments, and all of their New
Year's resolutions, but in the end they
found the proper road and arrived home
before daylight. In consideration of
the fact that a broken tongue is not so
seriouB aB a broken heart we were forced
to forgive them and think of the time
when we ourselves were young.
Salmon Arm West.
Miss Ida Harbell has resigned her
position in S. M. McGuire'B store.    .
A large number weut over to Ender-
by on Tuesday night to witness the
game of hockey between Enderby and
Salmon Arm.
Owing to the large increase in the
number of scholars in the school here it
was found necessary to engage another
teacher, so Miss Burnett of Calgary arrived in the Valley on Sunday but because of the effect of the change in climate she had to return to the prairie.
We understand another teacher is on
the way.
The sad news reached Salmon Arm
on Thursday last of the death of Mrs.
M. B. Simpson, who was drowned on
the ill-fated "Cheslakee." Mrs. Simpson, whose maiden name was Bluer,
was twenty-eight years of age and was
born in Ontario, in which province Bhe
lived until a young woman. She then
I came west to the state of Washington,
where she was united in marriage to
I Mr. J. Simpson. After living a Bhort
1 time in Vancouver they came to Salmon
I Arm, where she became teacher of the
' valley school. Here she was very much
liked, not only by her pupils but by the
people generally, belli young and old.
i Mr. Simpson will have the sympathy of
all the citizens of this valley.
Your correspondent, who is interested in Sunday schuol work, wishes on
behalf of himself and others to protest
against the unfair use of the property
of the valley Sunday school by persons
present al a political gathering held in
the old school house which had been
used (luring the summer as a Sunday
schoolroom. Since the latter part of
October the Sunday school had been
closed as there wus no stove in the
building and it was out of repair. The
benches and hymn books were piled
neatly in a corner unt of the way.
Reeve Kew (offered to put in a stove
! and patch the windows and Councillor
Harbell took a load of fuel in order to use
the place for municipal nomination and
1 election.   Since the meeting the ben-
, dies are strewed about the floor and
the hymn books are scattered and torn
' as if they had been used as copies of
the municipal act.
