if you mean it, I mean it, too, and—
And to this day that young man will
insist thut he popped the question.
All this happened away "down east,"
and if wasn't long before there was a
wedding. Not much longer before there
was a letter from Polly's Uncle Josh,
(Hon. Joshua Turner, an old pioneer of
Gotten) rich, generous and level headed, who wrote effusively of his delight
at her exhibition of what he called
"grit," and he proposed that if the
young people would locate at Golden
he would start them up in life, as a
wedding gift, having fully explained
that this is the best spot in the world
for young married people to get a good
.start. Of course they accepted, and
were soon bidding their friends adieu.
A few weeks subsequent to tho above
conversation a travel-stained party
arrived in Golden. Our friend, Uncle
Josh, was in charge and he led the
party straightway to the Queen's hotel.
"We'll go to the Queen's" said he,
"'cause that's the popular place and
strictly first-class. I have known J.C.
Greene, the proprietor, for years and
he is mine host after mine own heart;
being endowed with that delightful intuition that makes a guest feel at home,
comfortable, contented, and in mighty
good luck. The house is one of convenience; the apartments are well
furnished and the cuisine-well, that
hotel is noted for its excellent table, so
I have engaged rooms here until your
own house is in readiness." With
these remaiks Uncle Josh graciously
presented to Charles the deed of a cosy
"Afterbreakfaat is over," continued
the old man, "I must take you for a
little drive and then we'll proceed to
buy your outfit. To expedite matters
I'll just call on A. C. Hamilton our
enterprising, livery man, to send us
around a rig."    When the handsome
i A
It was in a stylish turnout indeed that
the rounds of the city were mad.
"Having already provided a cage for
the bird," said Uncle Jcsh, "now the
first thing we'll look after will be the
urnishings for it." Hereupon Polly
energetically declared that she had
heard so much about C.A. Warren that
she had decided to go there. Thats
right replied the generous Uncle this
is no question about Warren's being the
right place for furniture, hardware,
Cooking machinery, Bcots, Shoes, Clothing and in fact any other line you
might mention, so we'll give C. A.
Warren the order for furnishing the
house and if you don't say his prices
are below the very whisper of com-
pitition, then your uncle is no prophit.
"By the way," exclaimed Uncle Josh
with a paternal air, "the next thing to
look after is the lumber for those improvements which are aosolutely
necessary. Come with me and I'll introduce you to The Columbia River
Lumber Co. Ltd., who are the principal
dealers in that line here, and they have
a well equipped planing mill in connection. The Columbia River Lumber
Co., Ltd., carry the most complete line
of building material in the country-
everything, from the sills for the foundation to the shingles for the roof, including doors and windows, mouldings,
etc., and don't want all the money a
feller's got either. It is pleasant to
deal with The Columbia River Lumber
Co., Ltd,, for their greatest aim is to
give satisfaction to every customer."
And 't didn't take Uncle Josh long to
place "a right smart sized order for
building material.
"Well, Scat my!" exclaimed Uncle
Josh, with a David Harum accent, as
they reached the street, "I must run
over to tbe Imperial Bank of Canada
and get another check book. Come
along with me and get acquainted with
Mr. Jeffries and staff, for of course you
will do business with them and it is always more pleasant to be personally
acquainted with the people you do
business with. This bank is as solid as
the base of the universe, is managed
on safe conservativeness, and has a
strong workh.gcapital.   You will find
ihem ever ready to extend any accomodations compatible with business
"Guess I'll open an ac ount with the
imperial Bank of Canada right away,"
.-j.jlieJ Claries, and He did.
Emerging from the bank, Uncle Josh
took a puff at his "Key West" and
then launched out in a little piece of
sound advice to his  nephew.     "Now,
there is the question of a good barrister
jaid he; "that's of vital importance,
in starting out upon this little town it
is best that you make the acquaintance
of my old friend Hugh McDonald, for
one never knows when litigation is going to prop up, and I consider it a wise
thing to be in touch with some one
whom you can rely upon to  handle
any such business and I've been f -
quainted with Hugh McDonald for  a
term of years and have always found
him right when it comes to litigatrons.
"Haiti" commanded Uncle Josh, as
the party came in front of the liuckam
Drug Co's store.    "Walk  rigut in."
"Why, Uncle, "we're not sick'and-"
"Guess I know that," laughed the old
man, "but I suspect it wont be long
before this young man begins to tike
an interest in matter* of pal egoric and—
"U-n-c-1-e!"   "Well go in anyway and
get acquainted, besides Polly may find
some toilet articled she wants."   Sure
enough, before leaving he was loaded
down with combs, brushes, face powders and several bottles of fine perfumes.   "Don't forget," added Uncle
Josh, "to come here with your prescriptions, as J. A. Buckham is a competent
pharmacist who uses none but pure and
reliable drugs."
"Yes, and I must have some stationery, Uncle Josh, "quoth Polly, "and-"
"Yes, and a Bible with a reasonably
big family register," interrupted tbe
old man, "so while here, we'll see
about those things. You'll find many
articles indispensable for the parlor as
well as the library there, and as for
variety, Mr, Buckham has an unequalled stock." So here Polly's purchases included miscellaneous books,
fancy stationery, all the latest agonies,
bric-a-brac of all manner for the center-
table, and finding an immense assortment of magazines, periodicals and
newspapers, she subscribed for everything in sight. Polly remarked to the
generous old uncle, "Why, I don't
know when to quit buying. Everything
I find here at J. A. Buckhams just
strikes my fancy and is so cheap."
At this point, somewhat to the confusion of Charley, the old man indulged
in a half serious criticism of his personal appearance. "You are decidedly
off style for a townsman," said he
"and we'd better go see A. D. J.
Mathieson about some new duds. That's
an up to date place, where they under
stand the changing styles and are
noted for good fits, and I bet you'll
look like a newly married man when
you get togged out in a "Mathieson
Charley found a large stock of woolens to choose from and the prices so
reasonable that he left his measure,
and when his new suit was finished, he
looked so stylish in it his wife declared
she'd fallen in love with him much
sooner had he only been getting his
clothes made by Mathieson, the popular
"I would also like to make  you acquainted with Dr. W. E. McAbee,  my
dentist friend," said the old man.   "If
you ever have to supplement   your
natural teeth."    "Ugh!    Don't you
mention false teeth to me,'' cried Polly.
"I'll never carry  'pearly-lies' in my
mouth if I go toothless."   "Oh, aa for
that," laughed Uncle Josh,   "if you'll
consult a good dentist in time, you can
save the catastrophe.   Dr. McAbee for
instance, is wonderfully expert in saving natural teeth, and he has the skill
and every modern mechanical appliance
necessary to do his work with the least
discomfort to his patients.   Just come
up to the office a minute, anyway, 'til
I see if my new teeth are finished yet."
"Yes, and this is the important topic
of gastronomies, "continued Uncle Josh,
"we must forget meat.    It gots hand
in hand with bread. Now the next thing
is to locate a good market where you
can get    fresh    wholesome    meats,
poultry, etc., at all times, and according to my notion P. Burns & Co is the
only firm to supply you.   This  is the
boss meat market in the city and ere
popular with everybody who is particular to have the best.   The reason for
this is all because P. Burns & Co  are
very careful in the selection of stock,
get the best of everything and keep it
fresh on cold storage.   To keep your
'huddy' in a good humor, lolly,   trade
at P. Burns & Co's market every time."
Good advice.
"But say, uncle, look here, is there a
good horseshoer in town? You know
I'll be pa rticular about that mare Kitty,'
remarked Charley as they left the
market store, "Jes so, jes so," replied the old man, "and you shant have
no botcher monkeying around her feet
neither. The best horseshoer I know
of around these parts is John McHattie
He understands perfectly the construction of a horse's foot, knows just what
kind of a shoe is required and how to
put it on scientifically; in fact John McHattie is an expert blacksmith in any
department you might take him, and
he's mighty reasonable in his charges,
Charley had been running around all
this time sadly in need of a shave so he

The progressive farmer now-a-days
.s the one that keeps himself posted ot.
he latest devices and practical knowledge of experts to make farm work
easy, and at the same time get the
best results. The agricultural columns
of The Family Herald and Weekly Star
of Montreal are admittedly the best in
this country for the Canadian farmer.
No purely agricultural pa^er costing
twice the money furnishes the farmer
to-day with as good information as
The Family Herald and Weekly Star
and at the same time gets a weekly
newspaper without a peer and a magazine equal to any of the best English
or American publications. A weekly
newspaper, magazine and agricultural
paper—all three combined—for one dollar a year is what one gets in The
Family Herald and Weekly Star, and
no farmer's home in Canada can afford
to be without it. Send one dollar for
1909 and you will find it more than fills
the bill.

Editing a paper is a nice thing.   Ii
we publish jokes, people say we arc
rattle-brained.     If we don't we ar»
fossils.   If we publish original matte
they say we don't give them enough
selection.   If we give them selectio
they say we are too lazy to write.    If
we reman in the office, we ought to ro
out and hustle.   If we go out then we
are not attending to.business.   Just .
likely as not someone will say we stole
this from an exchange.   So we did.
J.F. Moodie, of Calgary, could start
a little museum of British Columbia
mineral specimens. Mr. Moodie has
been over a great deal of the interior
of this province and has apparent y
kept his eyes open wherever he has
been. He Is Ht present chiefly interested in a mica mine north of Revelstoke, in the Big Bend country. A
company has been formed in Calgary to
work this property and as good mica
mines are scarce prospects are promising. The mica is of excellent quality,
free from iron, and this makes it par
ticularly suitable for electrical work; it
is also found in big sheets. In getting
to and from this property Mr- Moodie
had some interesting experiences,
especially in shooting 21-Mile and Dea h
rapids in a canoe, something never doi.e
Besides specimens from tbe mica mine
Mr. Moodie has a nice sample of sodal
ite from near Field. This is also somewhat rare. It polishes like marble, and
shows some much prettier coloring than
granite, the bluj markings being verv
oeautif ul. a here is a six thousand foot
ledge, *i3, to 40 feet in width, where
this specimen came from.
Another pretty sample is from a
copper-gold lead Mr. Moodie found near
Golden. The lead is from 15 to 20 feet
and has been traced fif.een miles. Mr.
Moodie has also some very odd-looking
phosphate crystals found pear the mica
mine. Perhaps one of his prettiest
specimens is a bit from a copper-silver*
gold proposition north of Beaver. Mr.
.Hoodie has a little bar of sitver that
was made from stuff that broke loose
from specimens in his pack saddle.
There were about 15 pounds of it. This
yielded four pounds of matte, fro.u
which came four ounces of silver. - Tlie
heaviest specimen for its size Mr.
avioodie got from Spillimachene. It is oi
a 4 to 8 inch pay streak, and goes SjsUu
in gold and 30 per cent, copper.
Ihe progressive farmer now-a-dayt
is the one that keeps himself posted on
the latest devices and practical knowledge o':.experts;to make farm work
easy, and at the same time get the
oest results. The agricultural column!
of The Family Herald and Weekly Star
of Montreal are admittedly the best ib
this country for the Canadian farme..
No purely agricultural paper costing
twice the money furnishes the farmer
to-day with as good information aa
The Family Herald and Weekly Star
and at the same time gets a weekly
newspaper without a peer and a magazine equal to any of the best English
or American publications. A week y
newspaper, magazine and agricultural
paper—all three combined—for one dol-
ara year is what one gets in The
Family Herald and Weekly Star, and
no farmer's home in Canada can afford
to be without it. Send one dollar for
1909 and you will find it mora than fills
the bill..
