WuT7nTi%J., that flcwe Happened In
Town and District in the Past
Year and Possibilities for 1913,
1912 is on first base and 1913 is at the
bat. The good work of the past year
is to be backed up by the better work
of the year that is just hegun. It is up
to 1913 to make a three bagger. One
year's work is lost if it is not supported
and followed up by the year that comes
after. Sometimes the year has to make
a sacrifice hit. Let us hope that will not
be the fate of the present batsman.
In the town's premier industry, the
lumber business carried on by the
Adams River Lumber Company, the
past year has been one of expansion,
and of preparation for yet larger development in the future. The cut of their
mill in 1912 exceeded that of any pre
vious year. The company acquired new
areas carrying timber sufficient to furnish the raw material for several years
of manufacture. Those areas have been
opened up by roads, camps have been
built, a log chute has been completed,
and preparations are well advanced for
the construction next season of an immense log flume for transporting the
logs from the new areas to the Little
Shuswap Lake.
In the public affairs of the town the
newly organized board of trade has taken a leading place und has obtained
for the citizens more than one boon that
has contributed to their welfare. Chief
among these are railway and street improvements.
The Chase Fire Association haw finished
with a good record. Beginning the
year with a debt of more tnan three
hundred dollars, they now have a balance
in the bank of $196.23. after having
added materially to their fighting equipment. This result has been accomplished
through the active energy with which
the boys of the brigade tackled their
tasks.
The beginning of the year witnessed
the growing demand for the publication
of a local paper. The Tribune has come
as the answer to that demand, and it
modestly believes that it is and will continue to be a valuable asset to the town
and district. A newspaper can do much
to aid the development of a new locality.
And development means more business,
more people to be fed and clothed, more
houses to be built, an increased market
for light and water, and better living
conditions.
Turning to the farming sections that
form so important a part of the Shuswap
Valley, we find that the year has been
one of progress. The forest has been
receding before the vigorous onsets of
the land companies. The Lillooet and
Shuswap Fruitlands, Limited, at Sorrento and the Seymour Arm Fruitlands,
Great Britain's Boom.
Great Britain is undoubtedly passing
through a great trade boom, and reports
from all parts of the country prove that
practically every class of manufacturing
is doing business on a much larger scale
than has been experinced for many years
past. Other proofs of England's present
great business prosperity may be found

which are quoted at #72,500,000,000, or

year's returns for the same period, and

fur comparatively short periods amounting to $100,000 each.
Swedes for Peace River.
A Portland (Ore.), syndicate is arranging to engage in colonization work in
the Peace River district next spring and
will start a vigorous campaign in Northern Europe to secure settlers. It plans
to establish a Swedish and Norwegian
colony within British Columbia territory
adjacent to Pine River Pass.
The colony will be located on a tract
of 25,000 acres of farm land acquired by
its agents from Charles Ross MacAdam
of Vancouver, the selling price of the
tract being $8.25 an acre. Mr. Mac-
Adam was informed that a party of at
least three hundred wilt emigrate from
Sweden and Norway next April to settle in the proposed colony. The land is
said to be well adapted for wheat-growing and general agricultural purposes.
It also includes a large area adapted for
cattle ranching.

Limited, at Seymour Arm, have been
conducting active land clearing operations throughout the year. A large
number of settlers have come in, most
most notably in the country around
Pritchard, where there is no bar to obtaining entry on public lands. That
district looks forward to a bright future
as a farming centre.
In actual triumphs in fruit raising
Salmon Arm has taken an enviable position in competion with not only British
Columbia but the whole of Western
America. The laurels won at New Westminster and at Lethbridge pave brought
Salmon Arm, and through it the whole
Shuswap district, into the front rank as
a producer of the finest fruit. The
Notch Hill, Sorrento and Blind Bay district has also made noteworthy advance
in fruit and mixed farming. The present year will certainly see the further
expansion of this fundamental industry.
The Shuswap is not known as a mining
country, but it is going to be. During
the past year tbe eyes of mining men
have been turned in this direction. Options are at present held oh promising
copper properties at Seymour Arm, and
discoveries of valuable deposits of gold
are reported from near Sicamous and
from Celesta Creek. The coming year
is almost sure to Bee some definite beginning made towards exploiting our
mineral resources.
The year upon which we have just
entered should be the best yet in the
history of the Shuswap Valley.
mines in Quebec and factories in half a
dozen of the principal cities of the United
States, will open a branch in Calgary
early this year.
The Provincial Government will consider the advisablity of enlarging by 100
acres the university site at Point Grey.
One hundred and seventy-seven acres
constitute the site as at present laid out.
Over three thousand men are now at
work on the construction of the Kettle
Valley Railway. The management state
that they expect to have this number
increased to five thousand within a few
months.
Revelstoke, Dec, 31.��� A banquet to
Mr. Thomas Kilpatrik, a citizen of Revelstoke and retiring C. P. R. Superintendent was held last night at Terrill Hall,
Revelstoke. It was a great success, over
two hundred guests being present.
Many telegrams and letters expressing
regret for unavoidablo absence was received from notable railway men and
public persons throughout Western Canada.
Lacombe, Alta., Jan. 1.���From his
experience with the construction of important electric suburban railways in
various parts of Canada, Engineer William Young states that the new Lacombe
Rimbey line to be started early in the
Spring is likely to mean the rapid settlement of the entire country served over
an area of several miles on each side of
the right of way. Mr. Young also believes that the new line will encourage
every farmer in the district to get in
closer touch with the produce markets,
as the long haul will be eliminated, and
a fair profit should be obtainable on the
product. The experience of other farm
ing districts is instanced by Mr. Young
aB showing the large possibilities of
substantial advances in farm acreage
values as a result of the coming of the
suburban line.
F. A. Tripp, well-known in Victoria
real estate circles, and interested
extensively in important development
projects in British Columbia, stated in
an interview that in his opinion Kamloops occupies the position in Canada
that Spokane does in the States, being
by nature the commercial capital of a
vast interior area, Kamloops, he said,
must from force of circumstances, become the- distributing point for that
entire territory. He also added; "A
developing field of industnal and commercial enterprise, a railway centre, a
rich agricultural and mining area, these
are all factors operating in the making
of a city. They are forces which are
simply driving Kamloops forward as
the most progressive city of the interior." Mr. Tripp states foat he looks
to see important development taking
place at Kamloops during the coming
year.
record price of 41*640 per^oot. Although
plans for the new structure have not
been prepared, the building in all probability will' be three stories in height
and will cost approximately $100,000,
Calgary, Alta., Jan. 1.��� The estimated
assessment of Calgary for the municipal
rates of 1913 will probably reach
$132,000,000, an advance of $20,000,000.
In order to provide for present and near
future demands on the waterworks system, due to the very rapid increase in
population, the council will submit a bylaw for $1,000,000 as a preliminary appropriation for extensions to the Bow
River. An expert power engineer is to
be employed to report on the question
of additional power from either water,
coal or natural gas, any of which will
furnish an ample source directly tributary to the city.
Winnipeg, Man., Jan. 1.���The estimated Increase in Winnipeg's population
for 1912 is about 20,000. The maintenance of this ratio of increase would
mean practically th? doubling of Winnipeg's present population within the
next five or six yearB, Within one well-
known residence district a single company constructed about 75 houses during
the season just past. It happens usual
ly thatleases are signed by tenants before the houses are eompleted. In the
Pomona district there are said to be at
least a dozen tenants waiting for every
house that can he built for a period of
months to come. Extensive improvements are to be inaugurated in this district during the coming year, and the
belief is expressed that this exclusive
district is about to take its place among
Winnipeg's leading residential sections.
Watrous, Sask., Jan. 1.���Upwards of
200 members have now been enrolled by
the Watrous Agricultural Society, and
an aggressive policy is being outlined
for the work of the coming year. Steps
are being taken toward arranging an
extensive course of study for local
farmers with the co-operation of the
university of Saskatoon. The development of the rich agricultural district
surrounding Watrous is proving an important factor in the town's development
as a population and distributing centre;
and with shops, roundhouse and 27
miles ofi'tracks it is pointed out that
the shipping advantages enjoyed by local producers are likely to prove a strong
drawing card for newcomers to this
part ot the west during the years right
ahead.' Members of the Watrous board
of trade have taken a keen interest in
omotion of the agricultural society

Diwn For Overhauling
and Repairing,
The planing mill of the Adams River
plant has been shut down for several
days while the machinery is being put
in shape for another year's work.
Radical changes are being made in the
blower system for carrying shavings to
the burner. The work is being done by
the John K. Miller Co., Limited, of
Vancouver.
J, P. McGoldrick, the president of the
company, was in town duripg the first
three days of this week giving his personal attention to various matters of
business.
Mr. Doyle, who has been chief accountant for the past few weeks, has resigned his position and went away with
Mr. McGoldrick on Wednesday.
The Hindu Problem.
Some if not all of the lumber mills in
this vicinity are realizing that the dusky
East Indian worker is not so economical
as was thought when he made his appearance in this country some seven
years ago. Many local institutions have
gradually been letting their Sikh workers out, and it is anticipated that they
will all be eliminated in the course of
time.
These East Indian mill hands have
learned a great deal that may be useful
knowledge to them and a great deal
more that will cause trouble to other people during their residence in this country. They know quite well that they
are not paid the equivalent of a white
workman's wage and consequently they
are not over anxious to perform a
similar amount of work.���New Westminster News,
RECORD YEAR
Outlaws Handed Over.
Kamloops, Dec. 30.���Under heavy
police guard, Moses Paul and Paul Spint--
lum, who shot and killed Alexander
Kindness, a provincial police officer last
May, were brought to the city on Saturday and hurried to the jail. They
will probably come up for trial at the
spring assizes.
The desperadoes were handed over by
the Indians chiefs to Mr, J. F. Cummiski
Indian agent at Vernon. It was well
known that the chiefs could lay their
hands on the fugitives if they choae to
do so, and Mr. Cummiski threatened
that unless the men were given up to
him before the end of the year the official dignities of the chiefs would be
cancelled.
000 feet More than During
Last Year.
New Westminster, De.\ 28.-According to the report of the Canadain Western Lumber Company, the Fmser Mills
have shipped 35,000,000 more feet of
lumber east this year than during 1911.
The market of 1912 has been Ik! ter than
in any other previous year in the history
of the industry, and never before has
there been such a demand for dressed
and undressed lumber.'
Shipment of other mills in this city
und other points of the lower mainland
eartward have shown a remarkable increase. While the market at present is
reported somewhat dull, it is however,
better than usual for this time of the
year, and there is every indication that
after the first of the year things will
again pick up.
Mr. W. W. North, travelling salesman for the Canadian Western Lumber
Company, has recently returned from
Saskatoon and other prairie points, and
reports very prosperous times owing to
unexcelled crops. This condition justifies heavy building and orders for lumber
are received in large number.
Lumber Jacks Migrate.
Minneapolis, Dec. 27. "Turkeys,"
packed with a winter's supply of Peerless
and plug CUt, the American lumberjack
is crowding the second-clasH coacheB of
the railway trains invading the northern
woods of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Mackinaw clad���a fashion which prevailed in the pine woods long before its
introduction to polite society by the college-bred youth-and rubber shod, the
"jacks" are returning from the manufacturing districts, where they have
dragged out a derelict existence since
the river drives were completed last
spring, and are flocking toward the
camps.
The first fall of biiow in the timber
districts has attracted a large number
of the woodsmen, and it is estimated
that more than 10,000 swampers, sawyers, scalers, wood butchers, bull cooks
and teamsters will be engaged in the
forests of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Gold at Celesta Creek,
An authoritative report from Lake
Shuswap states that a sample of ore
taken from the vicinity of Celesta creek
has proved by analysis to contain a rich
vein of gold and that a targe sum of
money offered to the lucky finder by
the representative of a Seattle syndicate
has not been accepted.���Ex.

"There are eight presuppositions which are the
factors in the equation that will produce the maximum
of merchandising success for the producer or merchandiser of any community. These presuppositions
or factors are as follows:
1. Honesty, economy, efficiency in the organization.
2. Excellence in quality of goods.
3. Desirability of goods.
J4. Adequate supply b-T&dods.
{5. Proper distribution of goods.
/
6. Excellence in style and method of advertising
the goods.
7. Adequacy of advertising appropriation.   -
8. Right choice of advertising medium.
"There may be a measure of success even though
some of these factors have not attained their full
strength. If the third factor in the equation is fully
assured, that is, if the goods are desirable, the remaining problem is to make them desired. The vital factor,
the one that determines this, is the eighth, i.e., the
right choice of advertising medium must be made."

'THEY'RE    COMING   TO    6HASE'
PROVINCIAL PROBLEMS FOR 1818.
Problems are like other tilings that grow; a tiny comes when they
are ripe. Or, to change the figure, for a waile they hold off nt a distance, or slowly approach. They travel on no schedule and wo do not
know just when they nre due to arrive. All at once they crowd in u]m>h
ns and refuse to wait.
As the year 1918 opens iu British Columbia there are three problems
that press for solution. These are: the provision of increased transportation facilities to the country districts; the adjustment of the claims
of the Indians to landB within tbe province; the promotion of agricultural settlement. These three, and the most insistent of these is laud
settlement,
The first of these three problems onr government saw coming and
went out to meet before it arrived. The arrangements for the railways
now building and the inauguration of a progressive roii-.l policy were
steps in that direction. With wise foresight they were taken before
the problem had become acute. Thnt is InWoiily reason why transportation is not to-day the most pressing need.
Doubtless tbe other two problems have also been seen in the dis-
fanee and their near npproa-if noted. And perhaps it is not our fault
tbat they now look us iuyfhe face at close range and we have not
yet got our answer rendy/ There is no reason why we should hang our
heads.   It would be a rp/mtonous world if all problems solved themselves.
But in the begin/uing of the new year it is tha duty of every citizen
to know that the problems are here and that they must be met. More
tban that, it is hjfe duty to take an interest in them, a helpful interest,
and so far as hejoan to aid in their solution. It will be well if by the
end of the yeajf the daylight begins to show through.
I
A NEW LAND POLICY.
There U no .nri-iriition in this Dominion thai owes so much of its
prosperity to tho luricultnrists of the country ns ibe Caniidinii Pacific
railway, and il is satisfactory to ohserve that, al length, they have IL
wakened to a fiilizalion of this fact, nnd have decided to adopt a policy
that will, to a reWuiaUe extent, prove reciprocal. Their vacant lands
will be uo longer available for the outside speculator, but will be sold
only to lionii title settlers; and, in order to encourage speed* settlement
liy the liest das* oi farmers available, they "ill extend the period of
payment for tluii* lauds from ten to twenty years. A further advantage
offered is in the shape of loans to enable Farmers to erect suitable
buildings upon their holdings, and to purchase the foundation for the
building up of herds, of cattle. These loans will be restricted to a max*
iinum of two thousands dollars, repayable in twenty years, and bearing
interest al the rate of six per cent per annum, the same rate of interest
being charged on deferred purchase  rat-'s.    In order to further assist
fa liner with live stock antl
ling agriculturist the benefit
of free advice from experts engaged at the various demonstration farms.
All these facilities lire open for settler- from the I'ritish Isles, the
United Slates, and the countries of northern Europe.
The Canadian Pacific railway are lo he congratulated upon the adoption of so excellent a policy; liecanse, while they are looking to the en-
coiiragemeiil of early settlement upon their unsold seven millions of
acres of farm lands, with the transportation advantages inseparable from
the occupation and cultivation of those lauds, they are extending to future settlers advantages which will rentier fanning successful from the
outset and will enable many who under ordinary circumstances, would
never expect to become landholders to become landowners and stock
raisers under the most advantageous conditions, practically guaranteeing
their comfort and lack of financial embarrass uent from the outset. ���

Will Not Use Hindoos.
*. New Westminster, Dec. 28.���The process of elimination as regards the employment of Hindoos in their saw mill
has been steadily going on at the Small
& Bucklin mill, one of the largest in
the city, and the white man is fast taking their places. About a third of the
dusky forces have been displaced by the
white man in the last few months and
eventually the Hindoos in that mill will
be a minus quantity.
Mr. Bucklin states that they have
found that white men are just as easy
to secure as the Hindoos and as on the
other side of the line they have given
every satisfaction, they decided to try
this as an, experiment. Later, they
found the change so beneficial that they
have made it a fixed rule.
THE PR0ILEM OF LAND SETTLEMENT
In solving the problem raised by the need of rural population in
British Columbia there is no precedeut to follow. The colonization of
the forest slopes of Ainerioii facing the Atlantic furnishes no parallel.
On those slopes the farmer and the farm prepared the way and the
city came when the country needed it. Here ou the Pacific slope the
opposite holds. Tne citieB came first and grew out of all proportioi
to the agricultural settlement. Now they need a prosperous farming
population to sustuin their trade und feed their workers. And the
need is immediate.
We want our forests turned into fields and orchards. We look
for the work that in the east was done iu a century to be accomplished
bere in a decade. And who is prepared to say that it is not possible?
To thoBe who have watched the progress of tlie Pacific province in the
last ten years the meaning of the word impossible has gradually narrowed.
Two methods of attacking the problem appear to be open. The
oiu is by individuals unsupported by capital, the other by corporations
or persons witb large financial resources.
The first availed unaided to subjugate the eastern forests, a conquest in which time was scarcely a factor. Here it must be supple,
inented if not replaced by the second. Poor men iu large numbers will
not go on the laud. In the early eastern days they had to do it or
starve. In British Columbia to-day a better living can be more easily
made iu other occupations. When a poor man takes a pre-emption
ten to one it is almost a pure speculation. He may not aim to become
a fanner, But there is no other way in which he can accumulate such
a valuable property in so short a time. With the weapons at his command a prolonged war must be (raged and he must sacrifice himself for
the generation that shall come after.    Will he do it?   Not much
Most of the productive effort in the way of farming in this province
so far has lieiii hacked by ample capital. The most effective work has
often been done where corporations cleared and cultivated the farms
and then sold small holdings to the farmers iu such a state that 11 living
could be made from the start. It looks as if this method must be the
main dependence if the next decade is to see the forests give place to
cultivated farms. By all means give the individual settler of small
means a chance to make a home for himself, and aid the industrious
in every possible way. Let us not imagine, however, that to make the
acquisition of land easy will solve the problem of land settlement, Tbe
heart of the problem lies in milking lift* on the soilns pleasant and profitable as it is in the cities. To do this money must he sunk in the land
without hope of any return of the principal for a generation to come.
We have tried to state t he terniB of the problem; the solution remains
to be worked out.
Golden Land Agent.

Cody haa been appointed Dominion sub-
land agsnt at Golden, an office create!
by the decision of the federal goveni
ment to establish an office here in port}

homesteads and townsites in the railway belt. Mr. Cody is well known and
highly respected throughout this district and the appointment has met with
much favor at the hands of the public.

Two men were hotly discuissing the
merits of a book.   Finally, one of them
himself an author,  Baid to the other:
"No,  John,   you can't   appreciate

"No," retorted John, "and I never

If you feel like a-coming this way come
a-running
Don't write or waste money to phone
You have our permission
Under this one condition
You don't sit in the corner and groan.
Then if you can hustle,
And have lots of muscle
And want to get close to the earth,
Come to Pritchard and settle,
Show folks you have mettle,
We'll honor the full of your worth.
Don't act like a monkey,
And bring your pet flunkey,
Or wear   breeches   that stop  Ht the
knee,
If you do, rich or broke,
We'll take you for a joke,
Shipped here to us over the Heus,
Don't brag of your station,
In the life of that nation,
That assisted in giving you birth,
To you its no credit if your father
led it
It adds not to your personal worth.
So make a selection of some quarter
section,
And live like us savages here
And feel satisfaction,
When you get into action,
Of having a conscience that's clear.
The Passing of the Year
The year ninteen hundred and twelve
Has served its time and gone,
Gone, never to return again
Like all before have done.
It took with it ita pleasures,
Its happy smile and tears
Its many bitter partings,
And all its hearty cheers.
It brought us one year nearer
To our Eternal home,
It sent some of our loved ones
Out in this world to roam.
Many blessings have been scattered,
Many troubles have been borne
Since we below have witnessed
The last bright new year morn.
Let us make the best of this year
And enjoy life while it lasts,
Hope that better days are coming
And forget the dreary past.

^Farmers' Creed.
The Canadian farmers' creed, given
below, through written nearly half a
century ago, is still being printed on
cards, and distributed among the advanced pupils of the Canadian public
schools;
1.���We believe in small farms and
thorough cultivation.
11.���We believe that soil loves to eat,
as well as its owner, and ought therefore
to be liberally fed.
111.���We believe in large crops, which
leave the land better than they found it,
making farmers and the farm both glad
at once.
IV.���We believe in getting to the bottom of things, and therefore in deep
ploughing, and enough of it; all the
better with a subsoil plough.
V.���We believe that every farm
should own a good farmer.
VI. ���We believe that the best fertilizer
for any soil is the spirit of industry, enterprise, and intelligence. Without
this, lime and gypsum, bones and green
manure, marl and guano will be of little
use.
Vll.��� We believe in good fences, good
barns, good farmhouses, good orchards,
and children enough to gather the fruit.
Vlll.���We believe in a clean kitchen,
a neat wife in it, and a clear conscience,

Ted Jones took a last leap year chance
on Friday last when he went to Celista
to attend the dance given by Mr. and
Mrs. T. Brown in honor of the marriage
of their daughter Jean to Ernest Buckingham. It is hard to tell whether the
happy smile he wore when he returned
was caused by his escape or his capture.
Reports from Martin Prairie say the
dance there on New Year's eve was a
complete success. The music furnished
by the Chase orchestra was of the best.
All arrangements for a good time had
been carefully made, and connected in
in Buch a way as to reflect great credit
on the committee in charge.

The lady editor of this column is
some two or three thousand miles from
the Tribune office. Communications
and questions to the column will be welcomed, though the necessary time must
S 0, C. be allowed for them to be answered.
The Tribune is not responsible for
opinions expressed by the editor of the
"Woman's Column."
The first seal of u trolley car once
did duty as a penitent bench while a
male relative ialored to brill;; us to a
sense of our short-comings. We showed
a wicked unconcern until he touched on
our tendency to slang. Then conviction
came, bringing with it that sorrow that
worketh repentance. Our eyes fell.
"It is a fierce habit, sure," we murmured, "But please don't chew the rag
any more.   I promise to cut it out."
One New Year's morning is fresh in
memory. An acquaintance waspresent-
ing to an admirtngparliament of friends
the customary budget of resolutions.
"And, girls," she finished impressively,
"not another word of slang passes my
lips. You will tell me, won't you, every
time you hear me make a break?'
Her bewilderment at the shout that followed this lasted for nearly ten minutes.
Does the use of slang argue a low
grade of thinking and a doubtful moral
standard? Many good people think so,
and we might agree with them were it
not for some experiences that have
taught us a thing or two. We are told
that it is the native language of the underworld. Perhaps it is; we don't know.
People like Lefty Louie and Gyp the
Blood are not among our intimate friends'
We do know, however, one splendid,
clean cut fellow of nineteen. He uses
slang. While acting as night watchman around a group of buildings he
once met a comrade on his way to a disgraceful act. "See here, old man." he
said, "you're in'wrong." Now that
boy couldn't have preached a moral
homily to save his life. He would have
made an awkward job of giving a little
good advice. In this case probably
neither would have availed. But his
crisp, slangy statement of the other's
position as it appeared to him hit the
mark and saved his friend from a downward plunge.
Another story we remember. This
time the actors were a group of middle-
aged, well educated women. One of
them, through reverses of fortune, had
been compeAled to take a position as a
I working housekeeper. Now there had
"Come an opening for work better suited
to her talents and training. With the
prospect of a change her menial position seemed intolerable, and we were
loud in advising her to withdraw from
it immediately. This would leave her
employer in a hard place, but she felt
that ahe owed him little consideration.
While we talked, the tinniest woman in
the party hail gazed into space with
the expression of one who is seeing
visions. We always gave her the last
word whon she looked like that. At
length she spoke. "It's up to you,

heard her, how any other course had

Much of our slang is a translation of
the world's wisdom into the vernacular.
The old woman whose favorite Bible
verse was "Grin and bear it" wasn't
far mistaken. The words may not be
in the Bible, but the book is full of
their sentiment. "It's up to you to
make good." Put the doctrine of personal responsibility more neatly than
that if you can. "Get busy" and "Get
on your job" contain the gist of all the
essayists have written about the duty
and privilege of work. "That's the
limit" expresses, not very piously, a
belief in a Providence who keeps the
balance even. Who wants better praise
on liis tombstone than that splendid
westerner had when his fellows carved
above him that "He did his damnedest,''
A little cheerful slang takes the edge
uff many a grim moment in life. We
once heard a man with organic heart
disease making cheerful arrangements
for his widow when he should be
"planted." "Look outor you'll pass in
your checks before they're due," said a
jolly doctor. The patient laughed and
promised to be careful. Had his case
been stated to him in dictionary English he would literally have "had a fit."
We trust this letter will not be mistaken as a plea for the use of slang.
We consider it a bad habit. If your
daughter uses it, remonstrate with her
If your son does not use it consult a
physician about him without delay. If
you, a middle-aged woman, have acquired
the habit, the sooner you cut it out the
better.

organ Bnd the whole service waB a
memorable one. A good collection was

The dance at the Duck Range sehool-

A sleigh load of Chase people on the
way to the dance at Duck Range on Friday evening got tangled up in the brush
on one of the timber berths near the
site of the old Monarch mill, and were
hopelessly lost when they were discovered by a good Samaritan, who piloted
them clear of the woods and directed
them to the schoplhouse, oidy, as he
had heard nothing about the dance, it
was to the Martin Prairie schoolhouse
where his advice took them, so I suppose that accounts for at least one
sleigh load of Chase people being absent from the festivities,

1,975 Miles Constructed by Three
Trunk Lines in 1912 at the
Cost of $30,000,000
All records for railroad construction
work in western Canada have been
eclipsed this year. The three chief
roads, the G. T. P., the Canadian Northern, and the Canadian Pacific, have
completed in the neighborhood of 1976
miles, at an expenditure of almost 130,
000,000 in the west. Next year they
expect to complete 2700 more miles at
a cost of nearly $41,000,000.
During the year 630 miles was added
to the system of the C. P. R. In the
coming year the company plans to grade
and track between 1000 and 1100 more
miles.
The Canadian Northern laid the most
track during 1912 with 983 miles of
Bteel. They hope to lay another 1000
miles in the coming year.
Ab for Canada's newest transcontinental, it put down 459 miles of track
this season. For next year the company hopes to put down 600 or 600 more
miles.
The double tracking of the C. P. R. is
the biggest work upon which that company is at present engaged. It has
been rushed and now the second track
between Port Arthur and Kemnay, a
point in Manitoba just west of Brandon,
is practically completed. It has also
been progressing well between Regina
and Chaplin, Ogden and Sunalta, and
Hammond and Vancouver.
Surveys for the extra track right
through to the coast are nearing completion and the road plans to rush the
work of double tracking right through
to the coast and between Calgary and
Kemnay next year.
Among the chief works commenced or
completed by the C.-P. R. this year are
the $1,600,000 hotel being erected in
Calgary, the Ogden shops at Calgary,
enlargement of Calgary depot, reconstruction and enlargement of the Vancouver terminal and station yards at
Coquitlam, high level bridge and eight-
story office building in Edmonton, new
office building in Saskatchewan, and a
$1,000,000 coal handling plant at Fort
William.
The C. P. R. proposes to complete the
Vancouver terminal work, the Ogden
shops, the hotel at Calgary and the nev-f
waiting room and offices at Victoria this
coming year.
The C. N, R. is rushing branch lines
to completion in all parts of the country.
As for the line between Calgary and
Saskatoon it should be connected up
with the Calgary yards before the end
of the year.
The grading of the Meld to Calgary
branch of the G. T. P. is completed and
the laying of track should be finished by
March, 1913.
As well, a number of other lines
throughout the west have been lu'id by
the three roads during the year.
Business Man's Health.
In London a few years ago a conference was held under the auspices of
the Incorporated Institute of Hygiene,
to discuss the health of the business
man. Sir Thomas Crosby, the Lord
Mn>or ot London and a medical man of
some note, said that during an experience
of sixty years' practice in the city, he
had remarked a great change of viewB
with regard to the city office toiler, and
he believed thrt the health of the clerk
was at the present time well looked
after, One of the medical men present
argued that hurry at meals should be
avoided, and he also deprecated the con
sumption of meat in the middle of the
day. Others found that the high-Strung
nerves of many city workers were a
fruitful source of dyspepsia. Another
speaker said that the business man ate
less and drank less than formerly and
consequently enjoyed better health.
Most of the speakers expressed the
opinion that hut little should be eaten in
tlie middle of the day and some seemed I
to think that two good meals in the day I
were quite sufficient. The most impor-
tant part of the London conference was *
that which dealt with the eating and
drinking question. A man who does i
not take enough exercise or who does j
not perform sufficient manual labor to i
enable him to digest and assimilate a [
large quantity of food and particularly j
flesh food, should be very careful as to j
quality and quantity of food he ingests. |
Such a man does not require much meat j
and after a certain age the less meat he
eats the better will it be for him and as- j
suredly he should not eat much in the!
middle of the day���for the matter of j
that he should not drink much, either. I
As for exercise, that is a more debat-
able point. The majority of business j
men take too little regular exercise and
many sporadically take too much. In j
this instance the personal equation is
almost all important.
