83.00 Per Year
Chase  Stores  Are  Well   Stocked  For  The
Holiday Trade.   Purchasers Should Do
Their Shopping Early.
That competition in business is a good
things for the business as well as for
the buyer is being proved by the Increasing trade that comes to Chase each
season. There is a place for the isolated store, and it will continue to exist as
long as there is a need for it. But when
people want to do some serious shopping they like to go where there are
number of stores.
The proprieterB of Chase stores have
always aimed to keep large and varied
assortments in their respective lines.
This year they are better stocked than
ever. That the public appreciate the
progressiveness of the merchants is
shown by the ready response in the
trade from outside points as well as
from the town itself. The merchants
all report a great volume of business
this fall than in any previous year.
Because they can go from one store
to another and do their buying over a
number of different counters, those who
used to go much farther to do their
shopping are now doing it here. We
are giving this week just a glimpse of
a few outstanding features of the
Christmas stocks carried by our advertisers.
At A. McConneH'.
A general stock of merchandise is
carried. Things are there for us&and
ornament, everything from Swift1
hams and bacon to King George chocolates, or from a needle to a crosscut
saw. !n ffek'mg apparel .thoy can fit
you out with anything you want from
a pair of snowshoes to a leap year engagement ring. Their stock of cured
meats, canned goods, confectionery,
and other eatables is fresh and well assorted. On the other side of the house
they carry a stock of men's furnishings,
including suits and overcoats, gloves,
boots, and shoes, rubbers and lumbermen's supplies. They also carry ladies'
and children's shoes and rubbers and a
stock of dry goods.
In the back shop is to be found, in addition to the assortment of shelf hardware in front, a large stock of heavier
metal goods. Here, too, are stored
the heavier groceries, as well as a full
range of crockery ware. McConnell's
is a business that should expand into a
department store as the town grows.
Next to McConnell's as you go up the
street is the store of
R.J. Miner.
He deals in paints and wall paper and
electrical fixtures. For the holiday season he iB prepared to shed all kinds of
lights on the Christmas feast. In gasoline lamps he has the "Nulite" and the
Moore light, that bring to the isolated
country home a radiance equal to city
illumination. Here the town dweller
will find the latest type of tungstens
and the prettiest of shades to soften
their glare.
Louis Bean
specializes in confectionery. His window
is full of candy and an atmosphere of
sweetness pervades his Btore. His shipment of candy' from the old country was
lost by shipwreck in crossing the Atlan
tic, but he has made good the loss with
a supply of the native product that is
even better. He also has his usual array
of musical goods and gramophone records, and a varied assortment of

This Btep has been considered for some
time now, and the owners have had men
at work grading out a road to the claims
and erecting a bunk house, it being the
intention to push development work on
the property this winter. This work is
now completed, the road being in such
good shape that, even with the light
snowfall it was possible to take 500 feet
of lumber up the hill without any difficulty.
The men are now working in the tunnel and we understand conditions are
very satisfrctory.���Salmon Arm Observer.

A live boy or girl, and all Chase boys
and girls are that, likes nothing better
than a pair of skates or a sled for a
Christmas gift. Dainty silver and nickel
plated ware is also on display in the
show caBes and windows. And there
are pocket knives on the shelves that
any boy or man might be glad to transfer to his pocket. Or if you want to
make your wife happy you may present
her with a power washing machine that
she can hitch up to the water tap and
then go and play the piano while it does
the Monday drudgery.
A. S. Farris
is a man's man when he is on one side
of his store and just as good a ladies
man when he gets round behind the
other counter. On the ladies' side he
has a lot of things that to an unschooled
bachelor look like spider's webs, but
Farris calls them drawn worked linen
and Battenburg pieces. On this side
also are silk mufflers, souvenir handkerchiefs of Chase, handbags table linen,
und a host of other things. On the
men's Bide are the staple men's furnishings and boots and shoes, with neckties, gloves, etc. Here are suspenders

On Wednssday afternoon Mrs. G. W.

the Ladies Aid in honor of one of its
charter members. Mrs. E. E. Brooks,
who is to leave Chase in a few days to
reside in Vancouver, Mrs. Brooks was
presented by her friends with a china
tea set as a token of their regard.
About twenty of the ladies were present. After Mrs. Balmer, the president
of the society had made the presentation
tea was served and a pleasant social
time was spent.
The ladies will greatly miss Mrs.
Brooks from among them. She has
been one of the most active of their
members and a guiding spirit in all the
activities of the society.

Millet for Poultry.
Under the climatic conditions here it
ia often desirable to include in the farming system certain crops that have the
quality, or combination of qualities,
that may be termed, for lack of better
words, "drouthevasion." Forthispur-
pose the millets have their chief value.
For example, if hot winds and drouth
destroy the wheat, oats or barley in
June, the providenTCarmers may sow
sufficient millet to furnish forage for
his stock. This use of the millets is
well understood by the public; but, that
millet may be grown as a grain crop to
furnish feed for poultry and to supplement the ration for growing stock
and dairy cows, is not so well understood. In the season of 1911, when the
feed problem was serious on many farms
a small investment in millet seed coupled with a few hours work in preparing
the land might have produced a rank
growth of roughage and a fair crop of
rich grain.

The young ladies of Chase are not
slow to take advantage of the peculiar
pri vi leges that leap year brings. Whether or not they push opportunity to its
utmost possibility of achievement we
are not bo certain. Earlier in the year
they gave a leap year dance that up to
date had failed to bring about any tangible results. Determined not to let the
open season come to an end without one
more organised effort they arranged
for Monday night last a leap year sleigh
ride. Each of a dozen of the youth
and beauty of Chase invited thr. ��7'ing
man she liked best. As each young ladyA
was not limited to one invitation some
also invited the young men they liked
second best. That's how there came
to be two more gentlemen than ladies.
The following is a list of the merry
party that gathered at the corner of
Sicamous avenue and Chase street and

Kumloopsbuildingpermitsforthe month
of November, $66,676, have maintained
the big average that has characterized
the returns every month since the commencement of the year. The confidence
of the people and the desire to build

the affairs of the city, which this year
especially has prospered and advanced
by leaps ahd bounds.
British Columbia, having captured all
the honors in sight on the American
continent for fruit, has now duplicated
its triumph in Europe, having won the

of the great events of the year in
the Empire's capital city. The
news   was   received   by Premier Mc-
and all were used by local ranchers,
stated Charles O. Rodgers, manager of
the company, who paid a flying visit to
Nelson on Monday night, returning to
Creston yesterday morning.
The company'** mill has been operating steadily this year with the exception
of a temporary close-down for about a
month and has cut about 8, 000,000 ft.,
said Mr. Rogers. Operations were recommenced yesterday and will continue
throughout the winter.
Three camps are being run by the
company in the woods. A new caterpillar engine has been purchased by the
company for hauling the logs to the
mill. A distance of about five miles.
It is larger and of a more modern type
than that bought by the Canyon City
company a couple of years ago, and Mr.
Rogers expects that it will cut hauling
cost in two. The engine is of 65 horsepower and will make two trips between
the camps and mill daily, hauling from
20,000 to 25,000 feet each journey. The
engine travels over the snow on a kind
of endless chain arrangement which
makes a track.
With the better prices for lumber
prevailing in the United States, Mr.
Rodgers looks for increased prices in
the prairies. The company, he said,
has had little difficulty in disposing of
its product this year.

Our Timber Wealth.
Victoria, Nov. 30.���Outside of the
agricultural lands, those under water,
covered with snow, or still unexplored,
it is estimated that there is in British
Columbia an area of 65 million acres
capable of producing merchantable timber. R. E. Benedict, chief of operation in the Forest Branch, stated recently that the amount of wood annually added to the standing forests
through the natural process of growth,
is 100 feet per acre. Heneu it would appear tlmt il.1, billion feet of Umber iB being added us interest to the wood capital every year.
This is an amount considerably greater than that of all tlie lumber cut in
the Dominion in the year   1910.
Mr. Benedict places the value of this
growth roughly at $100,000,000 per annum, but benefits in excess of this
amount will certainly accrue. At the
present time, when only one-quarter of
the annual growth is being cut, the returns o the community are over $28,

Distinctive Printing
Printing is really a silent salesman. The modern
use of printed literature for business and advertising purposes is as far removed from the old
methods of getting business as the modern telephone is from the couriers of the ancients.
Advertising, to be attractive, must have originality,
style, force.   That's exactly what we put into your
commercial literature.
Retail merchants will find it a paying investment
to have us prepare a booklet or small catalogue
for them at least twice a year. Mailing cards,
folders or printed bulletins can be used oftener,
according to the particular needs of their business.

"Bnt gold-have yon beard of gold!"
Tudor asked Impatiently. "Do you
know anything about gold?"
Sheldon smiled, while tbe two visitors
bung eagerly upon bis words.
"You can go two miles up tbe Bale-
snna aod wash colors from the gravel.
I've done It often There is gold undoubtedly back In the mountains."
Tudor and Vnn Bllx looked trlum
pbantly at eacb other.
"Old Wheats-ears yarn was true,
then.' Tudor said, and .Von Bill nodded "And it Maialta turns ont aa

Tudor nrokv off and looked at Joan.
"Ii waa the tale of tbis old beach

Sheldon shrugged his shoulders
"We have never oeuro ot tt down

"And yon should be able to start

to him. "The boats abould practically
be knocked together this afternoon.
Tomorrow sbould see tbe outfit portioned and packed. Aa for tbe Martha.
Mr. Sheldon, we'll rush tbe stuff ashore
this afternoon and sail by sundown."
Aa the two men returned down the
path .to their boat Sheldon regarded
Joan quizzically. '
"There's romance for yon," be said,
"and adventure���gold hunting among

"Wbat do yon think of them!" ahe
"Ob. old Von Bllx Is all right, 'a

"A man of Todort type gets on my

from a man."
Joan felt tbat sbe did not quite
agree with bis Judgment and, some-
bow, Sbeldon cannot ber feeling and
was disturbed. Be remembered noting
bow ber eyea had brightened aa sbe
talked witb the newcomer.
A second boat bad been lowered, and
the outfit ot ihe shore party was
landed rapidly. A dozen ot tbe crew
pnt the Knocked down boats together
on tbe bench There were five ot these
craft-lean and narrow, with flaring
sides and remarkably long. _acb was
equipped wtth three puddles and
several iron shod poles.

The giving by Canada to England of three first class battleships
to be built wbere tbey will coat the least money and. wbere the work
can be done witb tbe least delay, will commend itself to tie sober
sense of tbe Canadian people. The defence of the empire is not a
party question wben tbe need for defence becomes acute. It never has
been to the British people since the days of Queen Elizabeth, when
Catholic nnd Protestant forgot that they were anything bnt Englishmen
in their conflict with Spain. Once more the day haa come when it is
needful that "onr house stand together, tbat its pillars do not fall."
The only question for Canada was and is: How most quickly and
most effectively can we do onr part to safeguard the Empire?
The many countries and races that make np the British Empire were
once held together by the hoops of a political system that encircled
them. In our day they are becoming welded into oue by tbe force of a
common interest and a common danger. The Empire is becoming one
its aim to do its part in making sure that the World shall not again
go back to any dark ages.
The building np of separate navies for the various dominions
might prove a step towards disintegration. Aud it is a part of our
sublims imperial egotism to believe that the world needs the Empire
as a united force in its affairs and that it is an international necessity
that Brittauia continue to rule the waves, In the presence of such a
necessity Canadians should not let party feeling clond their vision,
and narrow their horizon to the circle of their own political ambitions
British Columbia offers wealth to uo one. AH she offers is op.
port.tuity. If a man comes here, thinking he can walk around with
his hands in his pockets, or roam around through the woods with a gun.
nnd win any valuable reward, tbe sooner he disabuses himself of any
such notion the better. Of course, there are immigrants and immigrants. If the object of a man is to come to this Province and
make himself a home, where he can live without his working hard, he
cini have all the recreation in flahitur. hunting, ami so on that he cares
for. If be comes here to make a living out of the land, he must lie prepared to work. There is no use in trying to make people think otherwise. In a good year a man may get $1,000 worth of strawberries from
an acre, or his chickens tnny average fourteen dozen eggs it season; but
he will not get these results if he strolls out to play tennis six afternoons a week and plays golf on Sunday. He can, if he likes, come into town two or thiee times a week, lunch nt the chib and spend the
afternoon over a billiard table; but that sort of thing will not take place
of spraying the trees in the Spring or pruning them iu the Fall. He
may listen to the call of the streams or the forests, but, if he comes
home, he finds that some crop has suffered for lack of attention, he
must not blame it on the country or find fault with the man who wrote
the bulletin which convinced liim that it would lie a good thing to
ccme to British Columbia.��� Colonist.
To make a treaty and then deliberately break it is not the part of
a great nnd honorable nation. Such a nation are the people of the
United States. It is hard to believe, therefore, that they will stand for
the breaking of the Hny-Pauncefote treaty which guarantees tbe same
tolls to the slnpB of all nations when passing through the Panama
The Btorm of protest against the breaking of the treaty that went
up from the better section of the American press has prepared the
American people for the reconsideration of the recent legislation
against which Britain is protesting. The nation that would keep its
place in the world's esteem must belong to that class "that swears to
its own hurt and cliutigos not." *
When we get something for nothing it is usually worth about what
it costs. Eut tbere are exceptions. One of tbem is the free literature
on agricultural subjects that is dispensed by both the Dominion and
Provincial governments to thoso who ask. In the caBe of the Dominion government it does not even cost you the postage on the letter
of request.
The attention of farmers antl those who would like to be fanners
is called to a list in this issue of publications that may be obtained free
fromtlie government nt Victoria.
We are informed by Mr. J, P. Shaw, M. P. P., that the agitation
set on foot a short time ago for an extension of the government tele-
phone service from Kamloops to Sicamous, with a branch line to
Celistn, is likely to prove successful. The branch to Celista, so Mr.
BhftW says, will either be from "Notch Hill by cable under the lake or
will cross the Little River from Stinilnx. The point that counts in
favor of the latter route is that the line would serve the residents between Celista and Adams River who would otherwise be deprived of
telephone service.
In the sketch in Inst week's issue of the late Mr. Macpherson,
North Bend was inadvertently written for Big Bend and got past the
proofreader. The statement that Mr. Macpherson came round the
Horn wns also incorrect. Those who are acquainted with the facts say
that he crossed the isthmus of Panama.
Since education should prepare the youth for the experiences of
life the tour in Australia of the Vancouver high school cadets has been
worth while. They have had some drill in the common experience of
going broke.

When we consider the alarming increase in crime in western
Canada the question naturally arises regarding its causes. For there
is little doubt that thero are deep seated causes for the large number of
hold-upB and crimes of violence that mar the fair record of western
growth. It is a mistake to blame the police. Countries with not one
fourth of our police force know nothing of the hold-up man.
May not one of the reasons lie the slackening of tbe pressure of
public opinion. Many of us have ceased to look upon crime as criminal. The man who is disposed to commit robbery or murder is often
restrained more by the feeling thnt his deed will lie despised by his
neighbors than he is by the fear of punishment. If he thinks folks
will admire his cleverness he will take chances of the punishment.
A few years ago this was well illustrated in the prosecution of
grafters in the city of Philadelphia. Nothing availed to bring the
culprits to Bee the error of their ways until the women of the city and
the children in the schools refused to associate with their wives and
The publication in the magazines of stories in which the heroes
are criminals is nn incentive to crime. In the laat number of the
Canudiau Magazine ia a story in which the hero climbs on to tbe rear
of a train and holds np the passengers in the Pullman. One cannot
help but wonder if it had been read by the man who held np the Pullman passengers on the Imperial Limited at Vancouver.

Beginning of Remington.
One day in 1816, two men, a smith
and hia son, both named Eliphalet Remington, were working buaily at their
forge In Ilion Gorge, in New York Ststo,
when, so the story goes, the son asked
his father for money to buy s rifle, sod
met with a refusal. The request was
natural, for the surrounding hills were
full of game. Eliphalet, Jr., closed his
jaws tightly, and began collecting scrap
iron on his own account. This he welded skillfully into a gun barrel, walked
walked fifteen miles to Utics to have it
rifled, and finally had a weapon of which
he might well be proud. In reality it
was such a very good gun that Boon the
neighbors ordered others like it, and before long the Remington forge found
itself hard at work to meet the increasing demand. Several times each week
the Btalwart young manufacturer packed a load of gun-barrels upon his back,
and tramped all the way to Utica where
a gunsmith rifled and finished them.
The broad shoulders of Eliphalet Jr.
ached under his load and he soon devised
machinery with which he could do the
rifling for himself. Thus the forge became a complete gun factory, receiving
material as scrap iron, and turning out
finished rifles. Remington guns soon
became famous throughtout the country
and a brand new American industry was
Christmas Shopping.
At this time of the year when everyone is looking foward to a recognized
festive season, it would only be right to
consider those who look foward with
dread to the few days, or weeks before
the event. We refer to the shop assistants, teamsters and all others whose
work consists in catering to the public
needs. Christmas shoppers generally
take a certain amount of pleasure in
their purchasing campaign. It is entirely different for those who have to sell
the Christmas gifts. When Christmas
Day dawns it finds them worn out, all
because the pub'ic must wait until the
last moment. With Christmas in sight
the exhortation "Shop Early!" cannot
be too much insisted upon, By shopping early you make life easier for the
assistants and teamsters, by shopping
late you make hell on earth for all of
them.���Shop Early.
Be frank to the world. Frankness is
the child of honesty and courage. Say
just what you mean to do on every occasion^ and take it for granted that you
mean to do just what is right. If a
friend asks you s favor, you should
grant it if it is reasonable; if it Is not,
tell him plainly why you can not. You
will wrong him and wrong yourself by
equivocation of any kind. Never do
wrong to make a friend or keep one;
the man who requires you to do ao is
dearly purchased, and at a sacrifice.
Deal kindly and firmly with all meu and
you will find it the policy which wears
the best. Above all, do not appear
to others what you are not. If you
have any fault to find with anyone, tell
him, not others, of what you complain.
There iB no more dangerous experiment
than that of undertaking to do one thing
to a man'sface and another to his back
We should live, act and speak out of
doors, as the phrase is, and say and do
what we are willing should be known
andreadof all men. -Summerland Review.

"I am glad that when I was young I
knew nothing of this. The favorite
books of my childhood are more companionable than any others to me now.
I would not part with the row on this
shelf for all the modern books in the
Carnegie library. I have grown up I
with them. As my understanding deep-
uns they yield new treasures but never
any greater delight than when at twelve
yeurs old 1 fled with them to the haymow."
"But do we not often outgrow a book
that once interested us?"
"In a measure, yes. But when that
happens I think it must be because we
have assimilated all it has for us, or
find the essence of it elsewhere in better
From the table beside me I picked up
ma worn Bible. My eyes must have
looked my question, for my friend said,
"The Bible was partly spoiled for me
by too many interpreters. You know
how impossible it is to get in close
touch with a friend who must always
be met in a crowd. When I want to
meet the lovely Bible verses simply and
greatly as they demand, my spiritual
ears are deafened by the echoes of remembered controversy. Those passages that I discovered for myself as a
child are the ones that never lose their
freshness. I turn to them when every*
thing seems tending towards pettiness
and meanness.
"A play of Shakespere's that has
been scanned, analysed, and parsed in
school also suffers from the association,
I don't want my books over explained
to me. Why, you and I know what
our best thoughts defy explanation,
even to ourselves; how much more those
of the wise and great. 1 read the other
day that Tennyson could never without
tears read that passage in Cymbeline
where Posthumus says to Imogen.
"Hang there like fruit, my soul,
Till the tree die."
I was glad to remember that as a girl I
had cried over  those very  lines, but I
couldn't analyse their tenderness*.then
and I can't now.
''How you must have longed for
more books during those dreary years
of district school teaching," 1 said.
"Those years were not so dreary. I
had time to re-read my old books, and
there was alwayB thawie.ight of seeing
the children get interested in things
good and fair. After each pay day a
new volume was usually added to my
collection. At one farmhouse where I
boarded the only books in the house
were two Bibles, a hymn book, and a
complete edition of Dickens. There was
no loneliness that winter. Micawber,
Chuzzlewit, Little Nell,���all the dear,
delightful people fixed themselves firmly in my consciousness and there they
stay. I am told that people do not
read Dickens now, but his characters
are such old, established friends of mine
thatl cannot imagine life without them.,'
"Vou probably did not read much
after your marriage," I ventured. "A
farmer's wife has little time to cultivate her finer tastes."
'And who needs to cultivate them
more than the farmer's wife, I should
like to know?" said my friend, sitting
bolt upright with a suddenness that
startled me. Because she must rise at
five in the morning, and cook, sweep,
wash, scrub, churn, set hens and milk
cows until nine at night must she become a mere driven animal? Some oue
should paint The Woman with the
Broom for a companion picture to The
Man with the Hoe. Yes, 1 know from
experience how little time she can give
to reading. But nearly all her work
must be done with her hands, und as
the process is much the same each day
it soon becomes mechanical. So while
she works what a splendid chance she
bus to think! Now, don't tell me that
the housework will suffer unless her
mind is upon it constantly. The more
orderly and trained her thought the
more quickly will she reduce her work
to an easy system. 1 always recited
poetry while 1 washed mv dishes and
1 washed then well, too. Oh, sometimes 1 fell from my high estate, and
Oil Monday morning fretted lest my
neighbor should have her washing on
the line before I did. Country life
tempts us to these little emulations
and there is fun in them if we keep
sweet. But the tendency i.-i to see
things in false proportions and to
'think tlie rustic cackle of um- bourg
Tlie muriner of the world.'
The country housewife who supplements the reading she is able to do by
intelligent thinking escapes the ever
present temptation to gossip, does her
work better, and is far happier.
During these years I kept several
commonplace books and a scrap book.
Often a bright bit of description, a
poem, or a quotation from a masterpiece may be found tucked away in the
corner of a newspaper. These, when I
liked them, I preserved. 1 also kept
clippings on any political, social, or
economic  question that   interested me.
A knowledge of these current topics no |
intelligent person willingly foregoes, I
yet 1 cannot think periodical reading
absolutely necessary for culture. Neither Socrates nor Plato ever saw a magazine. I always looked forward to two
hours on Sunday afternoon with real
books,���those that have a great, eternal word to say."
She paused, and I waited silently, for
1 knew that in her thought she had
reached the period of her life when she
had fallen upon evil days.
"I shall always be glad," she said,
her grave eyes answering my unspoken
sympathy, that befoie that time came 1
had found Emerson. Not always in my
consciousness, indeed, but never far
from it, was his assurance that we cannot escape our good. Was the ruin of
what I called my happiness, based on
personal considerations only, so momentous a thing beside the vast and universal aims to which he bade me aspire?
During those months of crisis 1 seldom
opened my books. Life and its problems,
yes, and death, pressed too heavily. Yet
I do not think 1 could have borne those
days but for the reading that had gone
before. 1 should have been a dumb, tortured animal, with no fellowship outside of my suffering. As it was, the
great thoughts that through long acquain
tance had become part of myself, calmed
and.steadied me.
"This long story of myself and books
sounds egotistical, but except in minor
details I don't think my experience is
unusual. To you the friendship of books
has meant as much as to me, and I
know women in the country, far from
the advantages of culture, Whose daily
drudgery becomes divine through grace
of a few well worn volumes on the corner shelf."
When I bade her goodnight and went
back to my own room it was with the
feeling that 1 had heard the story of
an experience all too rare.

New Industry for West.
A new industry, that of naval stores,
may yet take a prominent part in British Colombia. The bull pine of the interior has been found by experimenters
in the Forest Products Laboratory of
of the United States forest service to
yield turpentine resin in large quantities.
A bulletin recently issued shows that,
even taking into account the unfavorable
weather conditions of Arizona, California
and other western states, the amount of
resin obtainable from the pines growing
there is about two-thirds of that which
can be had from the pines of the southeast where where turpentining is one
of the main industries. Labor is the
difficulty most prominent in the eyes of
H. S. Betts. the compiler of the information, but he believes that with the
diminution of the supply from the south
the Western bull pine may yet engender
new benefits to the country.
