There is big money in matches, the
Dominion Match Co., Ltd., is going
to make it, the reason tbey can
make it and how it is to be made is
something you can see and understand, and that is the sort of pro -
position to invest in. Stock is $10 a

advanced tho price ol the stock will
advance with it. For further information call at our demonstration

From all the neighboring towns applications for prize lists have come
In. Among those prominent outsido
poultiymen who aro sending leathered exhibits to this Bhow are Mr.
Waddell of Enderby, Mr. Somerville
of Malakwa and L. M. Johnson ol
tho same place. G. H. Smedley, of
Enderby and Ed. T. Peter of Arm -
strong also tho Hazelmen Poultry
Farm at Enderby, as well as many
others.
The Drill Hall will be well heated
and lighted for this occasion and everything points to next week's poultry show being the beBt ot the kind
held in the interior of thc province.
Up to uoon on Thursday, 150 entries
had been made.
Another instructive and interesting
feature about this poultry show
which should uot be overlooked, Is
the fact that Miss Steward a govern
ment poultry expert, will deliver a
moBt interesting lecture ou cooking,
using fowl for demonstration purposes. She will also lecture on "A
Woman's Experience in the Poultry
iUuBiuess."   Miss Steward, it iti claim
that the towns people will support
tlio enterprise with their presence.
Arrangements have been made with
tlie city for strings of electric lights
to brighten up every corner ul the

MORE MONfV IN HURD TIMES
The match industry is thc only oue
that declares bigger dividends wheu
other incomes decrease. To make
more money iu hard times is a remarkable prospect, but actually the
condition in the match industry, said
Proctor & Blake, special representatives of the Domlniou Match Co., Ltd
who are stopping at tho King Edward hotel lor a few days. It is a
remarkable fact that in 1893 the Diamond Match Co. of the U. S. paid
tiieir largest dividend on their capit-
iiizatiou of (16,000,0410. Tbe match
industry in the U.S. has been the
most consistent dividend payer that
is know, tbe reason apparently is
when the people economize iu food
clothing and other commodities they
never stop to economize iu matches,
instead tbe women will turn out the
gi.8 tor thev figure that lighting it
with an extra match is cheaper than

paid enormous dividends using expensive raw materials such as white

A Presentation
On Sunduy atternoon at tho close
of the Sunday school, Rev. R. J.
Mclntyre receiv?d a surpriBe from the
boys of the J.B.C. They invited him
to visit them for a few minutes, he
supposed they wished advice on some
undertaking, when, much to his surprise, Mr. E. Cameron arose and
made a speech, expressing the good
will, and sympathy of the class ior
bim and Mrs. Mclntyre in their work
"The utmost harmony has prevailed since your coming amongst us and
we desire to present to you and Mrs.
Mclntyro some small token of our
esteem."
Mr. Mclntyre then accepted a beautiful cut glass fruit disb, assuring
the members of the club, that he and
bis wife would prize tbe gift as a
constant reminder of the feelings that
prompted the giving of it. This is
not the only time the boya, we are
told, have remembered their pastor,
ns loads of wood and sacks of pota-
ti/es will testify.

Fairs, speaks of Kevelstoke In the following complimentary  strain:
"Rekolstoke was a big show, running strong iu Standard and utility

were large classes and some good
quality was shown. Browns were
not up to tbe Bulla or Whites. Revel

A most onjoyuble Christmas cele -

Mr. IS. W. Erlcson.
Buckingham l'lilace is quite lonely

There bas beeu a slight error
garding the cold  at Malakwa,

going down to aero, it seldom

tritle below freezing point.

We are greuely puzzled since Lloyd

stepped Irom the train he was congratulated for doing the right thing,
but we doubt whether ho did or not.
He is wearing that ear to ear smilo

Jack has an A No. 1 ranch, but judg

He is keeping all this under his hat
but no doubt we will hear before

The work on the river under the

CORRESPONDENCE.
Editor Mail-Herald:
Dear Sir,—In your issue of the
22rd, your correspondent was in error as to the average temperature ol
this valley for winter weather. I do
not think it will average more than
2D degrees, as freezing weather is not
commoo, usually Bolt and mild wca -
ther is experienced here. I do not
know that there is any record, either
government or private. All wo can
give is an estimate aud I think 30
would lie nearer the average than
zero. But to the average mind it
would be hard to couceive that there
could be a climate with a good enow
fall of from 60 to 100 inches that was
bo mild. With no wind, the snow
lay3 as it falls and tbe mild weather
causes it to settle. So it seldom
gets to a greater depth than twenty-
four inches in tbe open. The season
for snow is from Christmas to the
last of January. I have heard frogs
singing up to Christmas day aud I
have picked ripe wild strawberries in
November. Spring opens about April first. Tbo snow melts gradually
with tbe beat of the sun from about
the middle of February and by tbe
middle or last of March is all gone
and the clover and other grasses look
as fresh and green as though they
had really eujoyed their snow cover.
This iB tbe ideal wheat weather, although tbe land is to valuable lor
grain farming, as greater profits can
be realized Irom Iruit .vegetables,
bay, etc. An acre of potatoes will
produce from 10 to 15 tons and usually sell at from 116 to (20 per ton
on car at our station. Timothy bay
yields from two tons to four tons an
acre and tbe average price is about
$20. Cabbage and all root vegetables are very profitable to tha raucber
iu tbe Garden ol Eden Valley.
A   SETTLER.
SPECIAL CUV COUNCIL
A special meeting of the city council was held on Wednesday afternoon
at 3 o'clock. There were present,
Mayor Hamilton, aldermen Sibbald,
Lawrence, Barber and Abrahamson.
After the Mayor had called the meet
ing to order Aid. Lawrence moved,
seconded by Aid. Sibbald, thut the
notice of meeting be waived.
The leport of the Sewage committee
was then read, being as follows:
COMMITTEE    REPORT.
To the Mayor and Council:—
Referring to the prtitlon of tbe
ratepayers in refelence to a change
in tbe sewer assessment, we would
recommend all or one of tbe following three amendments:
1st—Amending tbe Water, Light &
Power Plant as asked for by the rate
payers in their petition.
2nd—To amend Bylaw No. 100 of
1907, allowing tbe substitution of a
rental in lieu of a frontage tax. The
rental being the most equitable and
by far tbe least expensive ln operating, of course it is understood a
guarantee of tbe credit of tbe city
would be required.
3rd.—By amending Sec. 256 by add
Ing Sub-Sec. F. ae follows or by a
rental guaranteed by the credit of tbe
city ln lieu of a frontage tax.
It appears to ua tbat all these amendments should be asked for by a
legislative authority, which would
place the city In a very much better
condition than at present.
(Signed)        J. O. Sibbald.
O.  W. Abrahamson.
Whereupon Aid. Lawrence moved,
seconded hy Aid. Barber, that the
government be asked for special legislation re Sewage for Revelstoke,
nnd also tbat tbey be askod for legislation extending the amount which
a municipality nt largo can expend
upon sewerB without asking for the
assent of the ratepayers.
Aid. Abrnliniiisoii spoke strongly in
favor of having a strong deputation
of buslnoBS men go to Victoria and
present tho mntter to tho Attorney -
General, but aB Aid. Sibbald was
leaving the same day for the coast,
It was considered advisable to leave
the matter In his hands. Aid- Lawrence movod, noconded by Aid. Barber, that the council authorize Aid
Sibbald to bring thiB mat tor to the
attention of tho Attorney-General In
his present visit to the coast.
At tbli meeting lt was learned tbat
Revelstoke had 426 dwelling houses
besides stores and hotel? and the
required amount of money annually
required from the sewerage depart -
ment was approximately $8, 5*10.

It  «ilS  (.'bristmas 1W2, and it  was  pcated  it over to them,  with  thc rc-
hot. After three years ol bitter strife
South Alrica was ut peace ouce moro
the Boers ol the Back Veldt Karms
were rebuilding their ruined homes,
the last ol thc three hundred thous -
and  fighting,  swearing  British  Tom-
uiark, "it was the witch ol a whito
man, left alone by bis spirits in the
bush, to haunt the Kallir as darkness
came." The Kallir boys all shouted
"Loo" in a teasing way, but Ralph,
on whom the significance ol tho story
was just dawning amid tbe  tangle oi
meys had Bailed from Cape Town (oi Matabelo  words,  called  tbo  narrator
the land Ironl which they came. Dowu over and questioned him sharply.   A
country the hard times which are ihe moment later,   with a few rapid or-
ultermatn ol     every war hud set iu,
retrenchmont  had  come  ou  all  sides,
everyone  was aduibtiug themselves as
i    tbey      could  to the hum  drum
a tye ol jieace.
Along that ribbon of Bteol, the
Cape Government Railway, northward, the battle scarred towns ol
Kimberley aud heroic Muleking, were
nuding it difficult to full back into
the ruts ol routine business. Nowhere was the feeling ol "fed up '
more prevalent than nt Bulawayo.
The ternuc heat "1 tbe hot season
bung like a pull over the commercial
capital of Southern Rhodesia, alter
the stirring times of the past three
years, tb* present Christmas looked
blue and  dreary  indeed.
Three men were sitting, wearily
lounging away the time ou the stoop
. : tut* Pulaoe hotel. The irritability
ol Alrica was upon them, aud they
discussed in excited toues ae to the
best way to spend their Christmas
week vacation. "Look here boys,"
Baid J.tn Wright, late of the I. L.
Horse but at present working as an
amalgamator iu tbe Phoenix Mine.
"I bave come into towu for a holt
day. and a holiday 1 mean to muke.
He are dead here, there is uo use our
hanging around with uothiug to do
but Bweat to death, let ua take a
Cape .ait and go lor a week's shooting trip to Gwaai River, there is
uli kmds ol game out there trom
elephaut to redbuck, nnd il we like
to risk the crocks, we can get a
swim iu tbe river." "Alright," re
plied Jack Lougburst, nnd Ralph
llowlaud, for so his two (rieiids were
named. "We are game, but cut out
the Cape Curt, aud let us take down
our own boys und go by rail, they
can pack nil the grub wc shall need
'.ut a week, we shall only be about
13 mil.-* trom the railroad track.."
Aud Bo it was decided, the bye weekly train lelt tbe lollowing morning.
nnd our three friends, accompanied
by their ooye carrying the blankets
aud grub, with tbe all important
water sack, loaded up iu tbe Railway
Guards canoose, and late that night
were dumped ofl at the little siding.
Tbe  following morning,   with     two
derB, the whole of the boys left iu
camp were marshalled iu front of him
The s-tory wus re-told by the now
startled boy, and thc truth of blB
(right became even clearer. "Macoo-
la Manzio," ih the White Man's corruption of the Matabelo words lor
"Hig Water" and it was clear to
Ralph's mind, thut tbe wordB and the
moans which tbe frightened und superstitious kallir had tukeu for the
witchcraft of a white spirit, ...were
probably the despairing words of
iiiinic wlnteiuuu, who, hunting or loBt
iu the labyrinth ol country rendered
waterless by the lateness ol the sea-
sou's rains, might even now bc dy -
mg ol thii'Bt in the wilderness. Hastily he scribbled a note giving general directions to his friends ou their
i jturn us to what he had left for nnd
which direction he had taken,* uud
leaving one boy to guide them after
bim as soon as they might return,
be plunged with his two black servants into the bush towards the spot
where the previous nighi, the karlir
bad been overtaken by his terrifying
experience. The raw katfir with the
water bug ready tilled, be kept close
by his side, whilst the other native
walked evenly with tneiu through the
thickest  ol the bueh.
Arrived at the point where the ttp-
paiution uud spoken to thc kallir boy
and souudly warning him ol thc con-
■ euuenccs it he ran away, the three
commenced to make u thorough search ot the surrounding country. It
was now tour o'clock in the afternoon, and for nearly two hours the
patty scoured the bush in ever widening circles, but all in vaiu. The
beat that overpowers everything In
Uiesc climates until relieved at intervals by tho welcome rains, was oppressive to the uttermost degree. In
an hour mole the sun would sink aud
the nativeB even il clubbed forward
ny whitemen, would probably sneak
back to camp. Already the boys,
[lightened by the strange tale and
lhe unusual features of their task,
were poiuting to the setting sun. Thc
whiteman redoubled his eflorts, and
bring his rifle Irom time to time in
the hope of being beard by thc one
whom be was convinced was loBt   in
extra  boys picked up from the near-  t^'trackless  bush where every    tree
by kraal,  the hunting party lit their
camp  tire on the banks ot the Gwaai
River. The river was almost dry.
just a succession of muddy pools,
swarming with tbe ii»h crowded into
them by the tall of the waters. The
expected rains were nearly a mouth
over due. and the shooting was lirst
* iass. Nightly the game came down
In big droves to the water, und on
the first day's shoot, three big buck
und a hue antelope were killed and
brought into camp.   Uu the last day
it une of the holiday, two of the
party left early ,u the morning, hop
tug to get a chance at some giant
Tssebe, leaving Ralph, who was suffering from a slight attack of mulur-
lle -quietly at rest.
The heat ol the day was terrific;
towards afternoon the sky took
and hrub     looks tbe sume. be urged
his natives on to greater eflorts.

, te sun were sinking across the burnt
dry bush, tbey touud bim. Huddled
nt the root of a great vacum beet-
chi« bUBh, a keen eyed kallir spotted
ii heap of dark, and iu a moment
Hulph was kneeling by his side,
1 ressiug the water bag to his lips.
But it was obvious that the sorely
needed aid had come too late. Tbe
poor fellow was too weak even to
''rink; the precious water poured on
bis mouth and face seemed to revive
1 im tor a brief moment, his lps ea-
s ived in vain to utter Bome vital
worde. then with a shudder his
gaunt frame collapsed In the arms
"f his would be rescuers.  Quietly
 ^^^^^^^^^     on ieverendly his body  was placed on a
c misty appearance, a herald ihat at ,U(ie  htter of grass and  wood    and
lust the drought was about to break . orne |,ack     to the camping ground.

place he hud shot at and wound.id, a
big buck, und determined not to loose
his quarry, be hud lol lowed the yamc
up by the blood spoors tor aevrrnl
miles. Inient on the eliase, he pur-
suod his murk until darkuesB, when
to his horror he discovered tbat
whilst bent upou thc object of overtaking his quarry, he hnd become
hopelessly lost in a strunge bush
country. Thut night he rested, and
before sunrise thc following morning
tired and thirsty, he commenced his
hopeless search for the path to the
distant river. All dny long beneath
tho burning Atricuu sun he wandered
through the jungle, and ub night approached, half frantic with thirst and
disappointment, he made hia way to
some rising ground, and climbed thc
tallest tree, in thc hopo ot espying
somethiug which might help him in
his terrible plight. In vain be ewept
tho horizon, nothing was to be seen
in any direction, save the endless
vlow of monotous bush. Descending
the tree, he nut wearily down to rest
tor u few minutes. In bis youth he
hud lived In Kimberley, and the famous blue ground, In which thc prec -
ious stones are lound at that world
renowned diamond storehouse, was
[aml'llar to him. It seemed to his
fevered mind, that he wus back, a
boy ouce more, gazing over the wire
tanglemcnts, at thc great Held of
blue earth lnid out ready for the pul
virisei'B through which it is passed
before the stones are picked out, and
the scenery of his present Bufferings
seemed to blend, in some strange
manner, with his vision of the Kimberley mines. Grouping around in
the gathering dnrkness, be gathered
up n handful of earth, and in the
twilight, ho picked out two stones
which seemed to resemble thc uncut
diamonds ol thc Kimberley Blue, mechanically thrusting same into his
pocket, and pursued by his maddening thirst, he wnndered aimlesBly into the uight, seeking thc water he
was deBtined never to find. After
this, the record, grew almost uuread
able, for three more days of bitter
agony he must have travelled delir-
ous, except (or brief moments of buu
ity, in one of which he had apparently made the last entries in his
diary, whilBt the river which he
sought, grew in his fevered mind to
the "Big Water" whereof he babbled
torth In his wanderings, and it was
these last weak muttcriugs, over-
| lieurd by thc superstitious kaflir,
which lend to his discovery.
The next     dny tbe nutive   bearers
I carried tbe body back to the railway
I and a telegram scut twenty-tour mil-
jca down the track to the nearest of-
illce  by      native  ruuner,   brought      a
smart     Uritish    South    Alrica Company's police corporal with two Bar-
otse trackers post haste to the scene
|The body wus buried, aud the corpor
lal returned to Bulawayo, leaving his
(two     assistants     to locate the dead
man's servant, and pick up from the
natives,  any  fresh  evidence  thc  caBe
might  afford.   The   diary   and   Stone*
found     mi    the     body,  came  in due
course     Into the hands of the Chiel
i Commissioner, and au official test rc-
j vealed tho fact that they  were    very
high  class  diamonds,  of    remarkable
e.f.e and value, worth approximately
fifteen  hundred  pounds,  in thc  rough
mid  uncut.   The officials ol the Char-
{tered Company, as well as Ralph and
bis companions,  made  many fruitless
attempt! through  the police  departments  "f  South  Africa  and the  press
to   locate  the  man's  relatives,      but
without avail,    and     as      "treasure
trove"  the diamonds finally      pa-oed
into  tbe hands of the Crown.        As
tlie  result  of  the j^ilicity   resulting
from these attem-4***. great     interest
was arw,at4QfBtiiigboul the  »ub con-
t.nent,  and J*per.ally  Rhodesia,  con-
eenring   tha   mysterious  m ne      from
which  in  his deiirum the leaf      man
had  picked such  wonderful  eemn     It
was  realised  thu'   -omewbere  in    the
'•wain   or   Somahula  forest      district
»herc the hunter had wnndered, must
l.e a diamond pips   wWak li Alarm
cred   would  make the  tinder  neb    be-
POnd   the   Wildest   dreamH   •■'.   uvanc-e,
und when the genuineness of the
stones wus proven beyond doubt, attempts were made to locate the wonderful field. The great Do Beers Co.
of Kimberley, who control ninety per
cent of the world's output ol rough
commercial diamonds, sent experienced men up from the diamond fields,
with carte blanche us regards ex -
penses, and the promise of huge re-
wurds, if they could locnte the lost
mine. Sir John Willoiighby, ot Wll-
loiigbby's Consolidated " hiinscll
spent eight months thoroughly prospecting the miles ot Somubula country owned by bis syndicate, whilst
numerous private persons wasted
time nnd money on the same errand,
But it wus all iu vain. By a miracle
ns it were, the dark African (orest
hnd given up its dead, but beyond
that nothing ever availed. The secret
ol the lost mine died with its <Ub-
coverer, who himself paid the penalty ol those who heedlessly probe into
the heart of the iincoiiquered bush.
Whether thc dead man lound the
stones during bis wanderings prior
to the tlnul adventure, and in his
fevered brain mixed everything up.in
tbc pages ot the diary, or it he really discovered the wondrous mine under the circumstuncis us be wrote,
will never be known. South Africa
has seen many strange things, the
secrets of its untrodden wilds nre sate
forever, nnd the lost diamond mine,
like the body of its tirst and only
discoverer, is destined to remain undisturbed forever, under thc South -
crn Cross.

of a most handsome and instructive

come hy the long chimney whicli
Captain McKillop himself hud Bet up
but like the roysteriug old gentleman he is, he actually shot up the
town and entering the Presbyterian
church in a moat boisterous manner
proceeded taking toys and trinkets oil
the large Christmas tree and hand
them gaily round to the delighted
youngsters. Certainly children never
earned their gifts more worthily.
Their singiag and reciting had elicited round alter round ol applause
from their parents and friends. Mr.
Montague presided at the organ and
was presented through the medium
of Santa Claus with a solid gold ring
and a small but eloquent address expressing the appreciation felt lor
his work for the church and Sunday
school.
The program included a patriotic
6ong hy the minister Mr. Smith who
possesses a very pleasing voice. Mrs
Vaughan sustained her reputation as
un accomplished vocalist by her Bplen
did rendition of the old favorite,
"Killurney." A rousing quartette
was given hy Miss Grant, Mrs. Vaughan, Mr.  Smith and Mr. Fisher.
Every child present contributed to
the entertainment and all displayed
aa eagerness and enthusiasm which
must have fired even a lar more critical audience than had collected to
hear them. Eagerness aud a desire
to excel may not always imply ability to achieve, hut at least they go
a very long »ay in exciting and eliciting approval. This manifestation
of good old Santa Claus will be a
red letter day in tbe memories of
many little boyB and girls in Arrowhead.
BURTON CITY
The banquet given to Wm. Hunter,
was a great success. Prominent men
we bbw there were B. K. Chipman of
Kaslo; M. McLean, Silverton; T.
Abriel, Nakusp; B. Conway, Apple
Grove and many other prominent
men along the river. A. A. Burton
occupied the chair and Ralph Islip
was toast master. The toast of the
"King" was responded to by the
chairman, Messrs Huhurt and Conway with musicnl honors; Public
Works, Mr. McLean and E. E. Chip-
man; Our Memlier, E. A.. Schraia and
T. Abriel. To which Mr. Hunter responded in able terms. A telegram
wus read from F. G. Fauquier from
Nelson, regretting his inability to at
tend, owing to stress of business.
Trade nnd Commerce was responded
to by Arthur Deminway of Arrow
l'urk and R. L. June of Burton; Agriculture by J. H. McCormack, and
11. H. Robson, and responded to by
Mr. Hunter; Lumbering and Mining,
hy by Mr. R. Stevens and Mr. R.
Stevens and J. Marshall; The Ladies
hy Ralph Islip and W. Scbaler, with
honors; Old TimerB hy 8. Walker and
Capt. Sanderson; New ComerB, hy
R. Hamilton and W. Malcolm. The
Press waa responded to by A. Me-
Other, who sat down to llBten to An
nie Laurie and chorus aa expounded
by W. H. Robson. Songs were also glveu hy Sam Reed, Arthur Hemingway, W. H. Robson, and Jas.
Prough. A Bplendid set ol courses
was placed on the table by the Kootenay hotel proprietor. "The best
ever" was the unanimous verdict ol
old timers and now comers. We flatter ourselves now in Burton that we
can put up the best feed nnd the beat
music of any place on the river and
we will live in hopes of a good time
next year. Thc banquet was brought
to i close hy the singing ol the
National anthem.
MIsb McLuughlin is recovering from

The debate at the school house is
postponed uutil further notice.
Tbe basket Bocial at A. A. Burton's home was very succeasful from
a financial point, something like WM
being raised iu aid of church funds.
Some of the baskets made as much
us $').76. Credit is due to Mr. Mc.
Dougnll and Mrs. Huhurt for their
energy in tho refreshment department
and also MessrB. Reed and Prough fcr
their vocal and instrumental items,
ulso to Mrs. Oscar Sunntrom, who
gave one of her hest songs. Altogether it waB the hest social ever
held in Burton and the cloud over
the new kirk is rapidly getting smaller which by the way is now out of
the hands of the builders and is a
edifice.

Few people realize that the Canadian People burn up
a Fortune in Matches every day. The daily consumption
is over eight carloads, or 288,000,000 matches lighted
every 24 hours!
The United States uses over sixty
carloads every duy, 20 of which ar»
manufactured in foreign countries
and imported into tho States. Canada is now importing matches from
Sweden und Japan, notwithstanding
there is a duty ot 25 pcr cent, on every cubc. There are various reasons
for this, mainly white cork pine,
which is thc only wood that can bo
used with the dye process, is very
scarce and expensive and tho demand
is greater than tho Canadian manufacturers can Bupply.
China haB no wood availablu lor
match sticks, therefore buys from
Japan over $2,800,000 worth ot mat
ches m per year. From Japan and
Swed"on Hongkong buys $1,300,000,
Singapore $175,000, and Korea $150,-
000. There is a very bitter feeling bc
tweeu the Chinese and Japanese, and
ns the DOMINION MATCH CO., LTD.
ot New Westminster, B. C, is able
to manufacture matches for a loss
cost under the New Parker Process
than the Japanese, this company will
handle tho Oriental trade.
Wonderful Patent
The Dominion Match Co., Ltd., has
been formed for the purpose ot taking over tho letter patents, processes
and formulas of C. J. Tucker, and
associates of Tacoma, Wash., U.S.A.
covering the ENTIRE DOMINION OF
CANADA for the manufacture and
sale ot matches under a NEW IMPROVED process, which has been
recently most thoroughly demonstrnt
ed in the United States, to be far
superior and much cheaper thau anything! ol its character heretofore man
ufactured hy the so-called MATCH
TRUST or independent companies,
and  which will  immediately revolut
ionize the match industry throughout
the ENTIRE WORLD. Millions of
dollars have boen spent in trying to
perfect a machiuc that would cut
mutch-sticks from raw, cheap material, such as ccttonwood, alder, spruoe
hemlock, iispen, baBBWood, linwood,
etc., and at the same time eliminate
the great amount ot expense ot hand
labor heretofore necessary. The
match manufacturer oquipped with
such a machine would be ln a posi -
tion to manufacture matches for at
least ono-third less than any other
process, and he could therelore drive
all competitors practically out of the
Hold.
Mr. Parker's Great Achievement
Mr. Parker, who is at proBent the
superintendent of tho Pacillc Coast
Match Co., of Tacoma, Washington,
and for nineteen yeurs an experienced
mutch maker was one of the many
inventors to work along these lines,
Aftor many years of patient toil and
at au enormous expense to himBelt
and trioinli-^^ni^-nicceedcd in PER-
•■Ki'TlJ^ .   fetafctL... is
work automatically that has heretofore taken seven operators, thereby
meeting every requirement of the
match manufacturer. Tho many economies effected bv this new process
will enable the Dominion Match Co.
to manufacture matches-here in Canada at* approximately 40 per cent less
than they can !>c manufactured under
any other Bystem. Under this new

Plan of Organization
The Dominion Match Company Limited is a corporation, organized and
existing by virtue of the laws of
Uritish Columbia, with an authorized capital sloci ot $1,(100,UUU, divided into 1UO,000 shares of thc par
value of $10 each, fully paid and nonassessable. Charles J. Tucker, president; Alfred E. White, director; Wm.
H. Parker, director; Charles D.
Bridges, director; Ray Thompson,
director and C. L. Ooddlng.
The purpose of the organization
was tho acquisition of certain letters
patent for tbe Dominion ol Canada
from Mr. Wm. H. Parker. The said
patonts are known ns Parker'B Continuous  ProoeBK.
Pursunnt to this plnn the company
has Issued to Mr. Parker in full pay
ment of these patents and match
formulas, which are valued at tlve
million dollars, forty thousand shares
of  Its  cnpll.nl  stock.
Forty thousand shares of the stock
bun lieen subscribed lur by an underwriting syntllonte to build a factory
and equip with theso Parker's Continuous  machines  and  other  machin
ery and equipment incidental to the
manufacturing of matches, with a
capacity of one car load ol matches
of five hundred cuses, ot one groBs
each pcr day, so that after payment
of patents and formulas, factory
buildings und cqipment, there will
remain $200,000 of its capital stock
to bc used as a working capital
It is also the plan ot this company
to torm subsidiary companies within
the Dominion ol Canada and retain
the control ol thc stock ol the same
and build udditioual lactories in, for
example, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Quebec and elsewhere, as deemed advisable all of which subsidiary
compunios will pay an enormous dividend to the Dominion Match Co.,
in addition to the largo profit that
will unquestionably be derived from
from the Now  Westminster factory.
The mutch cutting machine is being
demonstrated at Geo. Knight's Tailor shop lBt street at RevelBtoke, B.
C. If only tor your own education
you shouldn't miss seeing thiB wonderful machine making matcbsticlui
at the rate of a million per day.
