Tlie watch or piece of jewelry that may
please your neighbor perhaps, would be
just the opposite from what you would
fancy. This store's policy is to have a
selection from which everybody can make
a satisfactory choice. When in need of
anything in the jewelry line don't fail to
call and sec our stock and get our  prices.

Early last fall it was apparent that
Mr. Houston had bis eye on the office
of mayor. Some two months ago the
question, so far as his' candidacy was
concerned,, was Bettlett, as he became
an avowed candidate. Then the fun
started. The opponents ol Houston

The move is a good one ami the Herald  hopes il   Will  be u success.
The Nelson News, following iis us
u.tl custom, printed on ihe lirst ui
the year a complete review ul the
mining industry 01 the Kootenays
with further informal ion about the
principal towns, It was a paper
worth filing, for it contained an unlimited amount of valuable statistics
and interesting reading matter.
What the News does iu ihis line it
always does well.
The most elaborate and attractive
annual ever issued in llritish Columbia was that of tbe New West in ins let

book form, ami replele with views
and writeups of every part of British Columdia, from Fernie to Victoria. If a man in India, who knew

and outlay of money.
The Vernon News issued an annual
ihat gave some line illustrations, 12

Tliere are two trails in life, my boy,
One leads to height, of fame,
To honor, glory, peace and joy,
And one to depths of shame;
And you     can     reach that glorious
Its honors can he won—
Ot you can grope   in   shame's dark
It's up to you, my son.
One trail is strewn with labors flaA
With sharp thorn
one leads    through
Thai lo ihe eyes are fair.
One trail ascends, ant! day by day
You elimli—ymi cuuiiol   run—
And one is down hill all the way-
It's Up lo you my son.
Stern duly guards Ihe upper trail
Exacts olwdleiicc,  too,
And he who treads M cannot fall

Hut fickle folly, gay with smiles,
Rules o'er  (lie one
And leads tn ruin with her wiles-
It's up to you, my son.
At end of one long trail you'll find
That all the tears and moans
And galling cares you left behind
Were needed stepping stones,
And atthe other's end you'll see
Your pleasure's, one by one,
But lead ynu on lo misery-
It's up to you, my son.
At partings of the trails you stanl.

that liis iu this lime m ihe year all
righl. \ minister met one ol the
deacons 111 his church along the first
of the    month    iimi    Willi a   pleasaul
good morning said:
"Well, John, win have had a good
year in business.''
"Yes. 1 have done well the nasi
year,'' replied John.
"All, 1 am glad to hear Unit.Now,
.John, 1 want n good, big, fat contribution for Ibe church this year," said
the parson.
"Nnt a cent now. 1 am going lu
pay my debts before 1 give any money to the church," replied John, with
a positive shake of his bead.
"Thai is all right, John," said the
minister, "hut remember that yon
owe.ft big debl io the Lord."
"Well, maybe I do," said John,
"hul the Lord is no I pushing me and
the other fellows are."

Okr old friend Fred Stork, of Pernio, was re-elected mayor of that
city by acclamation. Thai was a fine
compliment to a Ilrstclass man. The
issue in the recent election was temperance and anti-temperance, and Un-
council is evenly divided, Thet will
throw a great many propositions up
to the mayor for Ibe deciding vote,
and Fred Stork is Jusl tbe kind of a
man who will decide for lhc best interests of the lown regardless of
either side, lie has the Intelligence,
he lias the nerve and lie has the judgment. Fernie made no mistake in
placing him at the head of its administration again this year,
There are still a few of those chaps
left who have failed lo pay whal
they owe for reading ihe Herald, We
don't like 10 come out and say much
more, hut yet we inleml lo one of
these days. In cases of this kind a
little truth will go a long way.
