Bride's railway policy waa brought
down in the Provincial Legislature
today. It involves tbe expenditure
in tbe Province ol approximately
110,004,000. It provides for the construction of the following lines:
The Kettle River Valley from Cold-
water Junction to Hope, f,f, miles.
The Canadian Northern Pacific from
Kamloops to Kelowna hy way of
Grand Prairie, Armstrong, and Vernon, with a branch to Lumhy, 145
The Pacini- and (Ireat Western railway Irom Howe Sound to Fort
Oeorge, hy way of Pemhertnn Meadows, 450 miles.
The Canadian Northern Pacific, an
extension ot Its lines on Vancouver
Island, 160 miles.
The government has induced the Canadian Pacific to take over from tho
Great Northern the Kaslo & Slocan
railway which Is to he standardized
and operated aa a part of the C.P.R.
system. The standardization of this
railway will cost |tui),l>un towards
which amount the province will give
'100,000 and thereby will save the
cost of a watron road which would be
In excess of thnt sum. This matter
was provided tor In the legislation
which was brought down in the house
All the railroad construction provided for in tho government's policy
must be commenced within six
months from this date and must be
completed hy July, 1915.
The whole program provides for the
construction ot 795 miles. The assis
tanee to the Kettle Valley line will
by a cash grant of $10,0(10 a mllo, Involving approximately tSOO.MC. This
railway begins at Midway and ascends the Kettle river to the mouth
ot ths west fork and follows that
stream to Onrml. It then takes a
northwester! 7 direction in order to
nscend the summit lying east ofiOk-
enaenn lake which it surmounts at a
roint. between Kelowna and Narania-
ta. Tt then runs' down the lake to the
outlet at P' ntteton where It crosses
the Okansten river and then extends
northwards ,,n the west side ot the
lake to Hiitutnerland.
Thence It will go westward and
southward to Princeton at tbo Junction ol the Hlnillkameen and Tula
meen to the month ol Otta creek to
Aspen drove, thence westerly to Cold
water, thence down the Coldwater to
Merrltt where it will meet tho rails
Ol the Nicola branch of tho C.P.R.
trom Hpenoei, Bridge. Tho new portion of the line will begin at the
point where the road now under construction reaches the Coldwater and
will extend In a southerly direction
to Its head and tlietire cross the divide to the headwaters of tho Oosltla-
hal'a nnd follow the latter to Hope
at or near which point the Feasor
will be bridged. The province will
give $200,000 towards the construction   ol the bridge   whlcb  la   to be
with a deck tor   highway
i The Canmliuu Northern I'acitic's
I new lino will ,'eave its main Hue
where- It comes down the North Thompson nnd will run a little to the
| south of oast, following the general
line ol tbe present highway road,
crossing tho Shuswap and Okanagan
at or near Armstrong, thence southerly to Vernon and thence, still in a
southerly direction, on the border ol
Long Lake nnd (rom that lake across
a low summit to Kelowna. The distance from Kamloops to Kelowna is
129 miles.
From Vermin a line will extend
eastward a distance of 16 miles to
l.utiiby passing through the Coldstream ranch. This railway will he
assisted by a guarantee of bonds to
the extent of '35,000 per mtle on the
same terms as the othor guarantee
to the same company.
The line from the head ol Howe
Sound to Fort George will be built
by a company to be known as the
Tactile Oreat Eastern Co., in which
tha contracting nrm ot Foley, Welch
& Stewart are the chief members. It
will rocelve aid similar to,that given
to the Canadian Northern Pacific. It
will give Vancouver connection with
Fort George and will be approximately 450 miles In length. Its location
nf route is as yet indefinite. It will
bo leased to the O.T.P, which will
also have the option ol purchase.
The plans of the Canadian Northern
Pacific on Vancouver island embraces construction Irom Victoria to
Hardy Day on the Northeast roast.
This lino for which the building of
150 miles ia provided, will go from
Victoria to Franklin Cleek on the
Albernl canal, thence by way ot Albernl diagonally across the island to
Comox to which point construction
is guaranteed by the present policy.

grunted It to the Dominion tor railway purposes. Tho land will hereafter be subject tn taxation nt tho rate
of 1 | cents per acre, which will
yield a revenue of approximately

You know it is destined to he the great industrial centre
ot the Vancouver Metropolitan district.
You know that the population of Coquitlam has already
increased 300 per cent—that the whole town is in a state of feverish
activity—that investors all over America are looking to Coquitlam,
and that within live years it will have a population of at least ^5.000.
You know that the C. P. R, bought a thousand acres for their
terminals from and through the Coquitlam Terminal Co.
Your common sense will tell you that although Coquitlam will
in all probability have a population of 30,000 in a few years, this
centrally located property will be the first to increase in value, and
will make the most money for its owners. Take the city of Vancouver, for instance, its original area was only 3 1-2 miles, and it is
in this district, between False ('reek and Buriard Inlet, in the vicinity
of the C. P. R. tracks, station, etc., that property has become most
valuable. History is repeating itself at Coquitlam. Investments
made near the terminals will become enormously profitable. ('lose
in property will here, as in every thriving city, be always in demand
at fabulous prices.
Get 11 map of Coquitlam. See the location of the terminals,
the new business centre, the industrial centres, and note lor yourself
that it is liuht here —in the very heatl of ihe < t ming activih —that our
property is Incited. Then conic to our ofllce. We believe we
•ire better informed as to the location ol Coquitlam than any
othei person or persons, and are, therefore, best qualified to advise
vou. The directors and stockholders ol the Coquitlam Terminal
Company are men of prominence in Western Canada affairs—among
them hall a dozen conservative bank managers—and undoubtedly
possess a more intimate knowledge of the developments taking place
in Vancouver to-day than any simili.n body ol men.

Ovar-Seas Club Social
The lirst social in connection with
Um Oranbrook Ilranch ol the Over
Seas Olub was held lu the Carmen's
Hall on Tuesday evening Inst. Thero
Was a good altendnnre nud the event
was a humping success. Messages ol
congratulation and best wishes were
read Irom the secretaries of tne ? el-
son and Lethlirldge branches, Mr.
Walllnger, president, lu opening ei-
plaitwd the objects ol the ( lull.
These being:
(1) To help one another.
(2) To Insist on the vital necessity
ol the'Brltish supremncy ol the sea.
(3) To urge every able bodied man
tbe necessity ot being able to bear
(4) To draw together lu the bond
ol comradeship the people now living
under the British flag.
And any other sentiment wlileli
would tend to closer union of the
British Hmi'lre. It would probably
take a considerable time to attain
the Ideal we hope to realize. We
must, however, all make up our
minds to help as much as possible
and make It a strong olub In every
way. Ol course there will probably
be all sorts and descriptions, ulflW*
snt Ideas, but we do not want uollt
leal or religious sentiments express
ed In any shape or form in connection with this club. These must he
debarred and then we will get along
rery well in peace and harmony. At
present there In no restriction as to
membership. All are welcome, though
at some future date It may be usees-
sary to frame restrictions, but that
will have to be dealt with I v the
general committee. After expreoing
hla thanks for the good asseuti ly be
called upon Mr. Smith, to Bniak on
the subject, before coinill('li'"IM 'he
musical program which I id been arranged.
Mr. Smith: "Lalien Rn.l geatlemen.
I think that the chairman has stated
all that Is necessary in regard to
this subject, but I would like to add
that tbls great question ol Imperial
tne. It is stereotyped on my heart.
During tbe Boer war Great Britain
waa laboring under a great burden.
It would appear at thnt time all nations were united in disparaging ber.
but we all know how well she came
out nf'that. How commerce wan not
touches). There was not a steamer on
tbe sea tbat was taken off her usual
course in order to carry troops to
South Africa, which shows her might
on the sea.
Application forms for membership
were then handed round, and the
Olub Is now tn be congratulated upon a membership of over sixty.
Twenty-flvs being gathered in on
Tuesday night.
A lavish supply ol refresh-mints
were indulged In, after which the
President proposed a hearty vote of
thanks for the kindness of Mrs. Leslie, and the other ladles whn had taken so much trouble tn provide such
an assortment of goodie goodies.
Mr. W. 0. Orebbln proposed a hearty vote of thanks for the ladles ol
tha Women's Institute whn sn kindly
permitted tbeir decnratlons to remain for the occasion.
After having partaken ot refreshments, the merry company Indulged
In dancing until tbe early hours of
the morning. The next social will
be held on Tuesday March 12th, for.
members only. Application for nd-
mlsalon should he made to the secretary before tbat. date In order that
you may have an enjoyable Ime on
that occasion.
For the occasion the walls wore
draped with tho Union .lack, on
which were placed the Clubs badge In
red and white, kindly worked by the
ladv members.

It Is with deep regret tha: we have
to chronicle tha death ol Mr. Fred H
Fred. Hmall wns well and lavora-
bly known In Oranbruhk. He waa tbe
sun ol Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Small ol
Vancouver, and a nephew of Mr. M.
II. Hmall nf this city.
Mr. Small's death was due to heart
lallure, having heen conllned tn his
home, he hns lingered along, hoping,
that hn would regain sufficient
Htrength, thnt ho might be able to
regain his health In a more salulirl
oils climate, but alas, the grim reaper, claimed him, on Saturday last.
Ills parents were wired the and tidings on Saturday night, and Mr. and
Mrs. Hmall, accompanied by his sister Miss Josephine, and his brother
Mr, Sidney Hmall, arrived on Monday Irom Vancouver.
The funeral took place on Monday
alternoon, under tho directions ol
undertaker W, R, Beatty, the Kev,
0, 0. Main officiating at ths church
and grave.
Tho casket was covered with dowers, gilts of love and respect Irom
many friends.
Among the most beautiful of these
flowers, was a large pillow from a
number of his friends at the Oosmo-
I olitan hotel. Wreaths from Mr. nnd
Mrs. Dr. J. H. King; Mr. and Mrs.
A. 0, Ilowness, Mr. and Mrs. J. A,
Murrav: Mr. and Mrs, Oeo. Hoggarth
Mr. and Mrs. J. II. Hall; Harry Bar-
Isto; Mrs. H. Rohlchaud, Mr. 0. Pid-
genn, and Mr. Percy Chapman.
The funeral procession was ono ot
the largest ever seen in Oranbrook,
The pull hearers were: Messrs. B,
Davis; S. Morris; R, Nalfe; F. Murphy; 0. McBachorn and J. Kennedy.
The deceased was extremely popular, and hnd a large circle of friends
and acquaintances, who very openly
expressed their grief and regret at
his unexpected and untimely demise.
Fred. Small, since his boyhood
days was very partial to horses, snd
was one of the most successful Jockeys in the Northwest. He rode the
winning mount at the "Derby" at
Calgary, and had the record for the
fastest mile at Vancouver-
Mr. and Mrs.  Wm.  Small,  parents
f the deceased, were formerly residents of Oranbrook, having came
here during the early days of tbe
construction of the Crow's Nest line.
They left on Wedneedry for their
home in Vancouver, accompanied by
their son and daughter.
At the Edison Tnaatre
Tonight at tbe Edison Theatre, the
Messrs. Baldwin Bros, have been fortunate in securing a reel of u'.iiis lor
their patrons that should be a delight to all those who are interested
in the future of the British Bmpire.
Had such a plot not been discovered
and had the navy not bad such r en as
Lieutenant Robs, tbe plot to blow up
the ship at the naval maneuvers containing their Majesties, during the
coronation festivities, the whole future of the British Umpire might possibly have been changed.
The films that will be presented Is
a British naval picture, and will
show how Lieutenant Ross unearths
the plot that was intended to do a
most dastardly piece of work.
Besides this picture there are others that will cause the tears to flow
down vour cheek in laughter; and
then there Is always the Interesting
World's happenings and the latest
fashions of tomorrow from Paris.
Ths attendance should be large as
tbese features are putting the Baldwin's to a considerable expense and
their Idea Ib to give the people some
thing that they perhaps only expect
to see In the largest cities.

Another gronl mistake is made in
not keeping constantly in touch with

In feeding, much is often lost, he-
cause we try to economize in the
quantity and quality of food mted to
rear our poultry, AR it is not a matter nf how long it will take to feed
out a hag or two ot feed, but how
quickly we can make them eat nnd
digest it, for the quicker the right
sort of food gets into tbe digestive
system the quicker it. will come out
ns growth upon the bird, nnd the
quicker It can he changed for cash.
We should never buy damaged grain
or food for poultry because it may
be a few cents cheaper. It is false
economy. The real economy in tbe
feeding of poultry so as to ohtain
the best results in the shortest possible time for market poultry and
'or the production of eggs, is to buy
■ti" best grade of everything, and
• hrn to blend ft in the right proportions ao to ret out of it all the food
value it contains.
Let the grower always take the
nrocautlons. It is as important in
this business ns in any other and
much loss is due to the failure to
make the proper plans and allowan-
ees. There nre so mnny contingencies that cenHot be put down to take
place at nny given time thnt. all we
enn do is to be ready for them when
'hey come. Some morning it looks
tike rain, nnd precautions must be
taken to ret nil the chicks under

More chickens are lost annually

which it will he well worth while to

We are  glad   to note   the  revival   of

and  exhllaratlngly  boathful  exercise,
and each season finds a'material  in

—especially     the    youngor set.   The
fair   sex    appear   to   preponderate
among the youthful riders who graduate from   the   filastorn schools    of
equestrianism.     In     the vicinity   ot

L.iexioned  girls, attired  In  becoming I

they are graceful and    daring equos*
triennes, handling their  mounts very;
skilfully.     Since   tbe    "armed-heel" j

they are so daring as to come to the
slaughter houses on the outskirts of
the city In search of food, and whole

of specimens which have been killed.
These birds are skillful Ushers. They
haunt the low marshy Islands In the
rivers and lakes of central Africa, with
elephants, monkeys, tlumlngucs and
many varieties of birds for companions, and gain their principal food from
the water. They often go In companies of ten or twelve to tlsh. Wading

Although marabou mammas have

With n brood of diminutive downy
young ones, so shy and retiring is this
bird in Its domestic habits tbat naturalists have been unable to determine
when and how It builds its nest. The
natives assert that lt nests In high
trees, but their statement is uot confirmed.
In captivity the marabou Is lord of
the luclosure, nnd In zoological gardens,
where specimens have been conllucd,
no other birds or even smnll lieasts
dure approach the feeding trough until tb" hunger of tbls Impudent bird Is
sill is tied nnd It has retired to the warmest corner for n nap. The Immense
strength of Its bill makes It a formidable enemy, and wben fighting for food
It will often overcome the largest vultures and wage successful battles with
beasts of prey.
The hyena Inhabits the same portions of Asln and Africa as the marabou, und travelers give accounts of
terrible contests between these two
singular members of the animal kingdom. The hyena is cnlk-d the vulture
among beasts, us If prerers carrion for
Its food, nud as loug as tt can tl'td
dead animals to devour It leaves the
flocks and herds In peace. Cowardly
by nature, It rarely attacks man or
beast unless driver to desperation by
The striped hyena Inhabits {be northern latitudes of Africa, Persia ntid
Syria, while the spotted species, which
is easily tamed and Is Sometimes called hyena dog, Is found In large numbers in the vast plains of South Africa.
The hyena is a strange looking beast.
It has a big head and a heavy, shaggy
mane. The hind part of its body Is
much lower than Its shoulders, and lis
bind .legs are short. This odd formation gives It au awkward, shambling
manner of walking, which Is both ludicrous and hideous.
This creature rarely shows Itself by
day. but when the shadows nf night
fall on the plains and forests It comes
out fmm Its home among the rocks
nud caverns In search of food. African travelers are much annoyed by It.
When the camp Is silent and all are
sleeping the hyena comes prowling
round, uttering hoarse liiimau cries,
nnd should it rail to Hud stilllcletit
camp refuse to satisfy Its hunger some
poor donkey is sure to be torn In
pieces by its terribly strong Jaws,
Few animals have been ibe subject
nf si) much superstition, In ancient
times it was believed that a dog went
mad If a hyena turned its evil eye upon il. and the beast was believed by
many to bo a wicked sorcerer, who
went about lu human form by day
nud at night assumed ihe shape nf 11
hyena. The poor ami Ignorant peasantry of Arabia even at the present
dny believe lu the evil eye of this
beast nud are afraid to shoot it lest
they should incur the wrath of tho
wicked spirit wblcb they Imagine
walks tb: earth lu this itcly form.
Tbe poor hyena, however, far from
being an evil spirit. Is a real blessing
to the regions It inhabits, ns it Is a
natural scavenger, provided by the
kind wisdom of nature to dear the
ground of much loathsome and decaying matter, thereby rendering the air
sweeter and tuner aud more healthful
The fattening of two and three year
old cattle has generally beeu more
proiitable than feeding yearlings. This
has been pretty conclusively demonstrated by practical feeders throughout
.the Mississippi valley. The Missouri
experiment station conducted a rather
exhaustive lest, and it was found thai
two-year-old steers make larger gnlns
than yearlings, that they consume
from 18 to 'i'2 per cent more grain per
day, but that the older cattle fatten
In n shorter time and consequently
return a greater net profit. Yearling*
require less grain for each pound ot
gain as a rule.
Of course the condition of the nnl-
mul at the beginning of the feeding
period   Is   an   important   factor   ami
It need hardly bo said that the
moat widely diffused breed of cattle up to date la the Shorthorn.
Tills, says Robert Ollphant Frlnsle,
hae arisen cliletty from tne readiness with which It emnlgamntee
with other brecde, Ita great aptitude to fatten and to the fact that
by using Shorthorn bulls for the
purpose of crossing other breeds
the crosses eo produced Inherit the
early maturity of the aire, attain
greater weights than the cattle of
the breed to which the cows belong
usually arrive at, and If the latter
possess any marked superiority la
respect to quality of meat that
chdtacterlatlq la still retained by

obtained hy tbe distillation nr the bitumen of sulphurous brown coal extracted by benzine liy means of superheated steam. Technically pure montnn

Its high melting point, a quality much

material at the same time facilitates
the exploitation of deposits ot sulphurous coal.
may to a large extent counteract the
influence of age In determining the
cheaper gains. Consequently It lt
rather dlillet.lt to determine exactly
tbe ago at whlcb animals should be
started. As a rule, however, it Is undoubtedly more profitable to feed two
or three yenr olds. The margin between the buying ond selling price is
less with yearlings and with tbe shorter fattening period already referred to
are the two chief factors. Particularly
with the cheaper grades of cattle Is it
desirable to wait until they have passed the yearling stnge before putting

One of tbe biggest mistakes a mno

any young animal tn food. In the cast

neglect to provide a generous ration.

Bread Prom Mature Animals.
A breeder urges Ihe necessity of constitutional vigor In the swlue herd.
He deplores the continued use of
young sires and dams. "Breeding
from mature stock always tends toward keeping up size and vigor." 1)0
says. "We need not go further than to
look nt tbe results brought nlimit by
injudicious breeding of young gills and
sires In our swlue. Not only has tbo
size been greatly reduced, but the vitality of tbo droves bus also been reduced until It Is not an uncommon*
sight to see whole droves mowed down
with cbolern. There Is uo question
tbat this evil practice has more to do*
with It than any other thing."

There arc several improvements that

so is this in reference to the bridge
crossing the creek on Cranhrook
Street over which nearly the whole of
tbe school children pass several times

Another danger, and tbe greatest
danger of all is tbo crowding of the

danger of. one or more of them being

help is not nt hand, who is there

An Explanation
The price of an Orange does not signify the value of it
—there has been several lots of poor oranges brought into the
city and sold at a low figure simply because they were a
miserable stock, being void of flavor and containing little or
juice- some people think of the price only when they are
buying oranges, but they realize (to their sorrow) that they
have been duped when they are trying to eat them.
Now which would you rather have one good, full-flavored
orange or a dozen tasteless excuses—we are sure you would
prefer the one good specimen- that is the reason we handle
only t le best which are Red Shield Redlands Navals.
Let us demonstrate this fact to you.
