son, Mr. G. L. Rogers, of Headquarters, left last Friday for her
home.

will likely be ready for operation
in about six weeks. Five carloads

Work in the woods commenced |
again ou Wednesday. The men
had been off since the severe storm.
On Wednesday last, Mr. Robert
Filberg, got up early in the morning and lit his fire, then went back
to bed for another snooze. The
fire got going pretty good, and the
first thing Robert knew the
roof was afire. The timely arrival
of neighbors saved his whole home
from going up in smoke,
The many Friends of Mr. Tom
Jolly of Camp 2 will be pleased to
learn that he is recovering, though
slowly, from his sudden and alarming illness, and hopes ere long to
be able to return to camp.
Camp 2 must be right in the
snow belt, for during the recent
spell of eastern   winter  five feet of
I snow was registered there, while at
the other camps and iu Courtenay
only 18 inches was noted.    Again
I on Monday night another 4. inches
fell, which  hardly  makes  logging
I the most desirable of occupations.
i Mr. Clay Walsh, the popular
foreman of Camp 2, returned last
[ week after spending the Xmas. and
New Years holidays in Seattle aud
I other Sound cities.    As he was in
I very poor health when he left, his
many friends were pleased to notice
, the improved condition iu which he
1 returned.

GRANTHAM
.&
A. B. BALL, Manager
During the past year a company
has been drilling for oil at Pitt
Meadows, not many miles from
Vancouver. The hole is now
down 1600 feet. The last 500 feet
was drilled through white granite.
Mr. and Mrs. M. B.' Ball returned home from Vancouver ou Thursday last.
The snow is now rapidly disappearing. Thus, while the delightful sleighing parties must cease for
this year, the pheasants and other
wild game need no longer suffer
from exposure aud starvation.
Last Saturday evening oneot the
Grantham bachelors accidenlly discovered that he held the lucky
ticket (No. 600) in W. G. Mc-
Keau's drawing for the 52 piece
dinuresett. Good for him 1 Better
late than never. His friends reminded him that the dinner set
would be a good start towards furnishing a house, but he does not
like living alone. What are wa
going to do about it ? Some suggestions would be esteemed a favor.
