Bv the institution of Crcslon
Lodge (U.I).,) of A.F. & A.M. last
Thursday evening, .lanuary 7th.,
another important event in the history of Creston was consummated.
The local members of the craft have
for some time past been endeavoring
to obtain a dispensation for the
formation of a lodge at Ibis place.
This eventually was ceded last week,
and it was then in order to get'
the lodge on a proper looting*, duly
instituted bv Worshipful Brother Edward Elwell, D.D.O.M., at Cranhrook, B.C. Accordingly all arrangements were made for the function, which came oil, as before stated,
last Thursday evening. Unfortunately tbe detailed arrangements were
greatly upset by the lateness of the
Hains, and a greal. deal of the
programme necessarily cul out. and
il was not until alter 12.3(1 that the
train from the east came in. The
visitors were then baison to the
lodge room nnd immediately escorted
lo the Creston hotel, where mine
hosis Moran A Mead had a sumptuous
bnmpicl prepared. The tables were
occupied by over thirty members ,,(

Wrlson, who resides on Banhrook
Hill, Armagh, has been informed by
the American government th.it. she
is entitled to tl,uuu accumulated
pension and a weekly pension of 12s.

was killed in the war between the
North and South, and for several
vears she has been trying lo induce
the American government to recognise her claim to a pension which
commenced to accumulate over forty
vears ago.
At an iuguest held recently at

Posing as a wealthy captain in. the
army, a tall, military-looking man
has effected an audacious coup in the
district of Peterborough. He com-
un need operations a few weeks ago
when ho negotiated for the hire of a
rectory near Peterborough1, and stay
ed at the village inn, where ho fared
well, and disappeared without paying
The next heard of him was at a
mansion on the opposite side of the
city, which the owner, a widow, recently advertised for sale. He expressed his satisfaction and intention
to purchase, produced bankers' references, and promised a deposit ol
£1,000. The "captain" gave out
that he Intended extensive alterations
for which he gave orders to local
builders, nnd pressed to he allowed to
remain as a paying guest to superintend ojierntions. Tlw owner consented, an expensive motor was hired
from a local garage, and in this he
visited many Peterborough tradesmen
and ordered goods to be sent to the
mansion. One Sunday morning,
having returned from a motor-drive,
he ordered lunch, and during its preparation proceeded to toot the bedrooms. A daughter of his hostess
was alone in the house, nnd, hearing
movements in her mother's room, en-
lend it, and the "captain" thereupon dived under the bed. Kventuat-
U ho left in the motor-ear with a
tpiautity of valuable jewellery, and
k train for an unknown destina-
t ..ii. In the course of thf motor
ride ihe ear ran into a tlock ol
sheep at Spalding, killing several.
Tito owner, however, was promised
ample compensation, which he is
siill seeking. The police are searching for   the man.
One night recently during a terrific
tale, the Holyhead life-boat, was
launched in response to red
tiares from a vessel In the hay, and
roceeded in the teeth of the tero-
est to the rescue. She reached
lie schooner Sarah Ellen, ot Swan-
en, nnd Captain Kinsellor and his
crew, number in" lour In all, sprang
on board the lifeboat. The return
journey proved to be fraught with the
utmost difficulty and danger. The
eato was right on the bow of the
boat, and she was short tacVet
bout and across the harbor mouth
in what eventually proved to lie a
vain effort t-o win the pier shelter.
The watchers on the pier as she ap*
urnached looked tor a cope to throw
her, hut none was handy, and ere
ihey could secure one, the lifeboat
had passed, and was lost to sight in
tho storm. An h<>ur afterwards the
xiety of the shoremen was allayed
by the burning of a green ilare by
tho lifeboat, which hod been driven
to sea, and bad traversed mauy
miles before she could lieat round
the harbor mouth again. A few
mlndtes later the water valves went
mt of order and a ri-d tlare was
ihown, hut no help could lie sent
from shore. The coxswain then re-
solvod to run the boat ashore in
order to safeguard the lives aboard,
«n- just hetore midnight the men
landed through the surf, having had a
terrible experience. The Sarah Ellen became a total wreck on tlte
rocks of Penrhos Point, and in the
morn;ng hut little remained r.f her.
A tragic example showing how men
can fall frnm heroism to crime was
given the other day at the Old Hail-
ev, London, in the history of George
Owens, a Walthamstow laborer, whu
pleaded guilty tn two burglaries and
to stealing in all Jewellery worth

months' hard labor. Tlie police evidence showed that Owens had -been

H¥ A DREAMER.
A hovel is often mote a homo
than a palace. II the spirit ol con*
uralal friendship links not the
hearts of the inmates of a dwelling
It is not home. If love reigns not
there; if charity spreads not ber
wny mantis over all; if peace prevails not; if virtue rear not. ber
beautiful children, and religion comes
not in her white re>be of gentleness
lo    lay her    hand in benediction on
very head, the home is not complete.
More and more as we grow we a[>-
predate tke liner traits that are ii
human nature. Men going out Into
life never forget thc motJter who
stays at home, and who has present-
e.| to them a nature with a reason
dominant with a high moral twnse,
wilh refined and sweet affections,
wiib taste, with patience, with
gentleness, with self-sacrifice, aad
wii-li disinterestedness. -A man may
go through all the world, tie may rua
ihiL.ugh nvtry stage of beliel and dis-
beHet, but there will be one picture
that he cannot efface. Living or dy-
Ing, there will .rise up before kim
like & morning star the -beauty ol
that remembered goodness which he
ealled "inotbep."
There are many happy homes,
think Ood, la every community, and
when they eais-t there goes out from
them a blessod influence, whieh can
hardly be overestimated. "A real
bome witl a mother in it," whose
hospitable doors arc ever open to
thoso aot so blessed, is a wonderful
irower for good. If the boys and
girls are made welcome they will not
be slow to tell it, and there will ba
an attraction in the sweet amenities
of hnme which will draw Uiem from
other and less only influences. It is
not possible in this world so full of
earo and trouble to be always merry.
It is quite possible to bo always loving and Kind. If tbe business cures
of the father and the never ending
struggles of the mother witb dirt
ami disorder, cooking, washing, iron-
Itig and mending, cannot be banished,
tlioy can be wonderfully toned down
by the loving sympathy and help
which each member of the household
can and should give to the other.
A bome where the golden rule is
livtif] is the nearest possible approach
iiven. Tbe •day comes all too
when the household is scattered—the hoys nnd girls, alas' girls
lunger—are gone to make homes
fnr themselves, elsewhere; when
ue, perhaps, are laid away Irom
sight-, our, ol reach ol kind words
helpful deeds, Happy are we it
sorrowful thoughts h-iiunt us, of
hasty words and unkind deeds, if
tiiI v pleasant memories remain. We
er. if our means allow, make e>ur
homes beautiful and attractive, and
well to do so- But without the
true spirit of home, it will be but a
cheerless and desolate, mockery—
pliflc the humblest cottage where
love dwells and kindness rolims. may
most- beautifully exemplify the sweetness mid blessedness of home.
THAT mU'IARY PARLOR.
We ilo wonder why people try so
hard to make their houses ugly—inside and out. They spend dollars,
yes, lots of them, too—In filling their
dwellings with what is neither useful nor ornamental, when a few cents
and perhaps a little more siense would
have made them handsome. The best
nnrlor, what misery sits enthroned
within its forbidding doors! When
vou make a visit vou are invited
within its sacred portals. The door
creaks, as if protesting against- the
invasion. A clammy atmosphere envelops you as you enter that makes
ton involuntarily shudder and wonder
if the room is haunted. You sit
on a hair cloth chair and dutch
frantically at the arms to keep Irom
.lipping off. The ambrotvpes of de-
ccased uncles and cousins und aunts
look down at you from their oval
frames and scowl. Tbe whatnot in
the corner is covered with bric-a-brac
intended to be ornamental, but wliich
looks more like some play house
replete with broken dishes and empty
bottles', and kept In the best room
m memory of some child, dead yean
.uro. You feel Id your bones tha
there has been no one in that room
for months before and that when you
go out It will once more bo sealed
like a tomb ..nd left to the care of
the relatives on the wall. You long
for .i *, Iim p.** of the sunlight out of
doors. If you could see a hat or a
coat lying carelessly about to denote
that you were still In the land of the
living, it would be j relief. You
wish you could find a cat In .the
room and step on its tail, or run a
oin into thc old aunt who looks down
from the wall with a stony stare at
least fifty years old, or kick the
hair cloth chair riyht into the whatnot, or do anything to cause a little
commotion and an appearance of life.
\nd whim, after a visit of half an
hour, about as cheerful as a
funeral, you leave the room, you
feel as if vou had been in the
nrosenoc of the dead. The best parlor, where sunlight and children, and
l.itnrhter, and music and fun nre ex-
elndori, should give place to something cheerful and mnre fitting for
Christian homes.
MANAGING A WIPE.
A New York paper recently offered
a nrlze for the beat thogbt on "How
lo Manage a Wife." The followiuu
was awarded tlw prize: " 'Manage?'
What is that? Does it mean to control? We manage a horse. We use
mir superior human Intellect- to control and K'lide his superior physical
strength so as to obtain the' best
results. Hut a wifo is not. a horse.
Where two persons are well married,
lbe wife is superior to her husband
in as many respects as he is superior to her in others. If happiness ts
to lie Ihe res ult of the union the
first business of the husband Is to
manage himself so as to Weep himself always his wife's respectful
friend, always her tender lover, alwavs her ei|ual pnrtnor, always her
-uiperior protector, This will neces-
sarlty stimulate Mm- wife to lie always an admiring friend, always an
affectionate sweefhfart, always
thrifty housewife, alwavs a confiding
ward." And this will so re-oct upon
ilie husband that his love for hi
wife will grow so as tn make It easy
for Ihe husband, with all his
faults, to bear with thc infirmities
of his 'one snd only* wife."
OM   tunes   are sweetest   and   old
friends art beat.

• HINTS ON FARMING!
AS TO SEEDS.
We are a^aiu at the season of the
year when the catalogues of thc
seedsmen make their appearance ar-
rnyed like "Solomon in all his
glory," and cause everyone Interested
in garden work whether for pleasure
or profit, to envy the perfection of
flower and vegetable portrayed therein. In this connection the recommendations of the seed firms are iu
many cases ill-suited to the peculiarities of an inter-mountain district
sueh as the section of Kootenay,
mainly because of tho lack of warm
nights and tn less degree on account
of short seasons and heavy evapora-
iion in the growing season.
I have at hand a bullolin of Uie
State Experimental station, at Pullman, Eastern Washington, entitled
"A Home Vegetable Garden in the
Palouse," and its teachings are very
well adapted for tbis district also.
So that, when lhe catalogues are
neyy to hand, they may be referred to
in connection therewith. 1 will now
give some of tho recommendations
drawn from extensive trials of
varieties and possibly at a later date
deal with some of thc cultural and
.ilber advise.
Among the lirst suggestions Mr.
Fletcher makes is one that in selecting sorts we pass over the colored
pnges of the catalogues (and 1 have
found it a good one, too.) These
contain the novelties generally said
to be very wonderful and handled
..nly by the linu whose book you
have In hand and at a price much
higher than the list of reliable well-
est.iblished sorts, and not one In
twenty of them becomes a standard
in the trade. Trying out    these
novelties ran well be left to the
experiment stations to do, that's
wha I we keep tbem for. Pro!.
Fletcher advises strongly against
waiting till you are ruady to plant
and then getting your seeds from the
ready made assortment kept in the
stores. Hy experiment these have
been proved to contain many old
seeds wilh poor power of germination—the assortment is (generally
poor and if suited to any place it
is the home district of the house
sending it out.
In the remarks on varieties Prof.
KI etcher has taken earliness of ma-
turity to the prime essential ia bis
.listrict and that may be taken as
ipptylng even more strongly here,
and after given the bulletin report 1
ipfiend my own note on any varieties
1 have tried here in three seasons
and omit any mention of rare vegetables not likely to be grown in
this district.
In beets Prof. Fletcher recommends
Egvutlan and Eclipse.
('abbnge—All Seasons, Wakefield
Sure Head, Flat Duteh.
I have found one called All Head
Early to bo best of several sorts.
Carrot—t'arenton, Henderson's Intermediate.
Cauliflower-Snow Ball, Gilt Edge
Ronnie's Danish Drouth-resisting
beats Snow Ball with me.
Cherap cauliflower seed is worthless;
below $2.00 or $2.50 per oz. is money
wasted.
In celery, Golden Self-Blanching
beats them all.
On sweet corn, Prof. Fletcher says
their summer is too short and nights
ton cool to give good results and
same may be said here, except in
exceptional sites and I am not able
to recommend any of several sorts
I have tried.
In lettuce, cabbage sorts are best,
Mrs. Deacon especially and Endive is
far ahead ol the late lettuces for
their
In onions, Prof. Fletcher's conclusions are similar to those of onion
growers here, Australian Brown, both
for transplanting and field sowing.
This is another case of only fresh
and good-priced seed.
Parsnips—Guernsey, and Hollow
Crown.
Teas for early use—Alpha, Electric,
Mid-season, Prosperity, Hornfords,
Heroine. Late use—Daisy, Queen,
Stratagem, Telephone. This last
dors extremely well here.
Iu the sugar peas, which are used
without shelling, and take the place
nf green peas very well, I grew Gray
Sugar lost- year and the yield was
extraordinary.
Kadish—The list is endless for quality—French Breakfast la the early
and Icicle in the late sorts are fine
enough for anyone. Salsify ts rarely
raised, although it is one I would
not be without for winter use. Prof.
Fletcher prefers Sandwich Island and
it does well here.
Spinach is another very little
grown plants, Victoria for early;
Vinoflay for fall-sowing.
Turnip—For early, Purple Milan;
mid-summer, White Egg; late, Yellow
Stone.
I have not mentioned cucumber,
melons, squash, pumpkin or tomato
as only in a few seasons and sites
will tbey give any satisfaction. 1
have spent labor enough ou them to
have raised loads in Ontario and
very little result, but I will keep
trying. Have had good citron each
year and will try the others on
similar plan next season,

CANADIAN PARLIAMENT OPENS
THE USUAL UORQEUUS SCENES AUAIN ENACTED
Ottawa, .Ian- 21.—Mild, almost
spring-like weather conditions attend-
til tlie formal opening ot parliament
ut 3 o'ehiek this afU'rnoon. The
crowd of spectators in tbe hall was
consequently even greater than in
previous years, while there was a
great crush in thi' galleries of both
houses. The senate presented a particularly striking appearance, the
number of ladies on the lloor beim',
larger llmu usual, while the display of gay uniforms around the
throne wus as brilliant as ever witnessed at an opening. His excellency, the governor-general, was accompanied from Rideau Hall by nu
escort provided by the Princess
Louise Dragoon Guards while the
Governor General's Foot Guards provided a tfuard of honor, awaiting bis
arrival at the parliament buildings.
As his excellency entered parliament
the battery on Napean Point boomed
forth the usual salutes. The gentleman usher of blackrod, having summoned the members of the house of
commons to the senate chamber, his
excellency read to them, both in
French and English, the speech from
the throne.
Tito speech from the.throne cover*
eil such points as' the abundant
harvest oh Iuto year, the visit of the
Prince ol Wales to the Tercentenary
at Quebec, thc waterways" treaty
hit ween the I in led States and Cnu-
.id.i, late financial depression, the
rapid settlement 61 the Canadian

to the speech from the throw were
three of the new Conservative representatives from British Columbia,
George II. Cowan, of Vancouver,
George 11. Barnard, of Victoria, and
Martin Burrell, of Yale-Cariboo,, all
nf whom made exceedingly favorable
impressions, but particularly the last
named, whose scholarly address was
listened to with close attention by
the house.
RAILWAY NOTES
MORE C.P.R. EXTENSIONS.
Montreal, Jan. 21.—It was announced today bv Second Vice-
President   Whyte,   that    the C.P.R.
programme   for    western extensions
has been settled   by the executive.
One of the most important lines to
be built will be from Weyburn to
Lethbridge, about 400 miles, running
about midway between the main line
and the International boundary.
Twenty-five miles of this line is expected to be completed this year.
The gap hetween Edmonton and
Saskatoon is to be completed in the
spring.
There is to be another line from
Lethbridge to connect with Macleod,
("al-rarv and Edmonton line, a little
north of High River station.
A branch north from Chcadlo to
connect the line from Lacombe to
Alix, will be carried as far as Ghost
Pine Creek this year.
Foundations for a huge scheme ot
terminals at Fort William will also
he laid this year.
Mr. Whyte added that while he did
not wish to state the exact amount
of the appropriations for western development it will go into many mil-
liona.'
PLANS   FILED FOR MAIN   LINK
INTO VANCOUVER.
Vancouver will be the Pacific
const terminus of the Canadian
Northern railway. Messrs. Macken-
?ie & Mann have filed a route map
with thr railway commission at Ottawa,
This map fully indicates that they
abandoned the idea ot constructing
ii main line in an easterly and westerly direction through the center portion of British Columhia from the
Yellowhead Pass at the summit of
the Rockies to Bella Cool a, with n
branch line running north and south
from a point on fie main line to this
eitv.
Instead, they will build -, main line
running direct in a southwesterly direction from the Yellowhead pass to
tidewater on Burrnrd Inlet, The
route, according to tlie map tiled, is
by a svstem of waterways almost a
h-milrod miles long, to the North
Thompson river nnd thence down
that river to Hs Junction with the
South Thompson river at Kamloops.
Thence the line will follow tho main
Thompson river, taking 1he opposite
hank to that occupied hv the Canadian Pacific railway, to its confluence
with the Fraser river at Lytton.
From tbis hist mentioned point the
load will parallel the Canadian Pacific on the same side of the Fraser
for a considerable distance before
proceeding to Vancouver via the
Lillooet country.
COMPANY    TO    BUILD     J2ft0,000
PLANT.
(Spokesman-Review.)
Final estimates and arrangements
will be made In the next week for the
Installation of a *200.ftoo plant on
the property of the McGiilivray Cree Coal A Coke company,
Limited, hv Hyrnn E. Sharp, srere-
tarv of the companv, who will leave
today for Michel, B- C., to meet J.
Frank Povah, manager of the property and F. C. Greene, ;l coal expert
from Pennsylvania, who has heen ve-
t.niied bv the company to install its
working plant.
This property Is directly north of
Coleman, Alta., alone McGiilivray
creek, which runs at rlghl angles to
the Canadian Pacific. Before the
property can he developed a railroad
sour must be constructed or an aerial
tramway from thc bills to the com-
l'anv's yards at the track, and this
will lie one of the first, improvements
built.
The companv is incorporated in
Washington with a capital stock of
M.nwi.nnn. II. L. Simons, ot Glen-
c.k\ Minn., is president. F. C.
Greene, who has heen retained to put
in the plant, had ihe direction of
nutting In one of the large
plants at Michel, and Mr. Sharp and
Mr. Povah will look that over before
the three go to Coleman to decide
upon lhc apparatus for the new
mine.
Owing to the scarcity of water the
C.P.R. hnve put in a steam pump
on the overflow ditch and have run a
line nf wooden nipe to tho tank and
round house. This is simplv a temporary measure until the water
supplv company are in a position
to supply the necessary quantity of
water.
MAY GO TO   NELSON   BY RAIL.
Nelson, B. C, Jan. 24.—A most
important resolution, to be considered
hv the Associated Boards ol Trade
when tbey meet in annual convention
at Trail, B. (.'., Jan. 27, was passed
hv the Nelson board in annual meeting here on Thursday uic-ht. The
resolution calls for the memorializing
of the government bv tbe Associated Boards requesting the buildup of an extension of the Crows
Nest Pass railway from Kootenay
Landing to Procter.
Ths is one of the links vet to be
constructed to give the Kootenay
direct connection with the prairies
on the cast and thc coast on the
west. If the link between Kootenay
Landing and Procter were built the
const ruction of the Midway &. Vernon
line bv the C.P.R. would give all
rail connection with Vancouver. Thc
niece of road which is the subject
of the memorial would he 35 miles
long and would cost probably 1100,-
ooti a mile, there being ■ eovi deal
of heavy rock work in it. At present connection between Procter, 20
miles from Nelson, and Kootenay
Landing is made by steamer on the
Kootenav lake, the water trip being
over 30 miles.
The i !l\R. machine shops were
closed down last Thursday on ae*
count of lack of water but were
running full blast airain on Friday-
Owing to the cold weather there
are a great many engines in the
shops for repairs.
W. Fa. Woodhouse, master mechanic
of the C.P.R. western division. ol
Calgary, was in the city on Thursday
.ui business connected with his department.
The steam pump whieh the C.P.R.
have put in east of the station for
the purpose ,.f supplementing the
water supplv company's water ie
now In working order so that an
abundance of water can tie had at the
tank.
Superintendent   McMillan   o!     the

both of Calgary, Alta., were   in the
city yesterday.

VBOUT THE ROYAL COLLIERIES
Lethbridge, Alta,. Jan. 24.-H. N.
Oaler, president of thc Royal Collieries, Limited, is   in the city today
(tending n meeting of the Western
Cnal Operator's association. Mr.
Galer drove out to the mines
vesterdav and is very woll pleased
with the progress made. The work
of development has been completed,
Ute spur has been in operation for
some time, anil shipments are now
proceeding regularly. The company
would like to procure the services ot
twenty-five more miners at once. D.
UcPhco, formerly of the Coleman
Mercantile    companv, has opened     a
i-neral store at Royal City. From
now on the comnanv will greatly In-
asc   the output each month.
TO LICENSE CLUBS.
The clubs of the province are to
cnnie under the supervision of the
attorney general. All those now incorporated, and those hereafter seeking Incorporation must annually take
oul a government license and pay
fee of SUHl before they can obtain the
privilege of selling liquor. They must
,ilso submit to inspection when inspect inn is by the government autto
nriiies deemed necessary, and they
shall not sell to minors. These
are the chief features of one ol the
earlier government measures which
will be introduced at Victoria BJ
\ttorney General Bowser. The Wll
carries wilh it no reflection upon the
better class of clubs, many well conducted and long organized institutions against which there is no sus-
nlelon of abuse of present privileges,
hut the new measure will have a
wholesome effect upon all others.
