Number Eighteen.
FERNIE, B.C. DECEMBER 7th, 1916
PRICE FIVE CENTS
MILITARY MENTION
Lieut.* A. B. Irving, reported missing, believed killed, is now unofficially
prisoner of war.
It has been decided by the Entente
Allies that Russia is to have Constantinople.
Word was received early this week
that the Western Universities Batt.,
19Cth C.E.F., was to be broken up
and sent in drafts to France. Now
we hear that the officers made so
serious an objection to this course
that the authorities have decided to
reconsider the breaking up of so fine
a regiment.
EUROPEAN EVENTS
The -econstruction of the British
cabinet  will  hardly  cause  as   many
I heartburns as the similar event in
British Columbia.
Mr. Asquith has resigned the Pre-
Imieish'p. The Unionist leader, Andrew Bonar Law, has been offered
the Premiership by the King, which
he has accepted.
The Italian steamship Palemo,
with 47 Americans on board, has
been torpedoed off the Spanish coast.
The Palemo left New York for Genoa,  Nov. 15.

What   the    great    Trans-Siberian
[railway has done to develop the   remote districts which it penetrates is
1 strikingly shown by the story of the
I town of Nova Nikolaievsk,    Siberia.
When the rails of the Trans-Siberian
reached the Ob river, the site of the
town   was   a   tangle   of  underbrush,
with  no  sign  of human  habitation;
row it is a modern city of 100,000 inhabitants,    with     electric     lighting,
large stone buildings, schools, a lai'ge
Town Hall, and a cathedral in    the
Byzantine style of architecture.
The reason for this rapid development is that Nova Nikolaievsk is situated at the intersection of the Trans-
Siberian railway and the River Ob,
the   great  artery   of  communication
for Western Siberia. Now that   the
Altai railway has reached Biisk, Barnaul and Semipalatinsk much freight
j will go beyond Novo Nikolaievsk, but
lit is expected that the new city will
fmake up'for this loss by the cargoes

in California preparing for publication

account of his investigations among
these interesting people, who are said
to be 10,000 years beind the white

doubtless afford welcome material to

We must apologize for a somewhat
patchy paper this week. Events
which cast no shadows before them
prevented any possibility of ascertaining anything and precluded any
work, but we hope to do better next
week.
By Jane McLean
Onco, slender fingers held the thread
And soft beneath a dress of gray
A  sandalled little foot, long dead.
Hard worked the treadle day by day.
And now, half hidden in the gloom,
Where   attic   rafters   hover   low,
With   cobwebs  on   its  dusty  loom,
II whispers of the long ago.
And  sometimes fresh young    voices
steal
Along the darkened attic stair,
And   in   its   dreams     the     s
wheel
Counts out its memories unaware.

PEG ()' MY HEART
AN   APPEAL
Last Saturday night was wet and
cold, and all the stores were filled
with eager buyers, so the theatre had
to suffer. The play, like the bills,
was ace high. The audience nearly a
three spot; the noise and clatter and
creaking doors the deuce; the leading lady, a fair queen; the leading-
man, her royal partner; the villain,
a knave; but hearts were trumps and
honors due every member of a fine
company. After the play the company celebrated American Thanksgiving at the Waldorf Hotel; and also
Miss Dorothy La Vern's 18th birthday. It is a pity so few people saw
so good a production as Peg o' My
Heart.
An Impossible Feat
A good story is being told of a reply given by a student to a question
set in an examination paper.
"If twenty men reap a field in
eight hours," ran the question, "how
long will it take fifteen men to reap
the same field?"
The student thought long and carefully before setting down the answer,
and when he handed in his paper this
is what the examiner read:
"The field, having already been
reaped by the twenty men, could not
be reaped a second time by the fifteen."
BY BLINDED SOLDIER
Neatly typewritten, correctly punctuated and paragraphed, a letter from
a blind soldier to a Winnipeg friend
has been received. Rupert Graves,
who wrote the letter, is now at St.
Dunstan's Hostel for Blinded Soldiers
in London. He says, "I expect you are
surprised to get a typewritten letter
from me but I have been very busy
since I have been here, and have
passed an examination in this. I am
doing well with Braille and can now
read fairly quickly. I am also studying massage and getting on very well
with it. It will take several months
ing and think I should make a good
to be proficient but I find it interest-
living with it." He goes on to say
that since he was wounded his wife
had taken a post in a bank and was
doing well at it. But she found it
rather tiring, and he concludes, "I
trust she will not have to remain at
it very long, as we look forward to
making a home in time."

In their own country the mystic
ceremony by which Radhabai Pawar
became the wife of Shankar Pagar
would have been spread over three
days, but in New York it was over in
fifteen minutes. Yet from the rite
celebrated at the rooms of the Ve-
danta Society, at 236 Central Park
West, none of the traditional features were omitted. The bridegroom
wore his native garb, a rose dhoti,
turban and shawl; the bride a sarii
of white silk and a veil. They stood
before an urn in which fire flamed
and encircled it three times while
the Swami read the service in Sanscrit from the sacred books of the
East. Then the couple feasted and
in Western style departed on their
honeymoon.
Shankar Pagar and his wife Radhabai are brilliant students of philosophy at Columbia University and
first met each other in the Indian
schools of the progressive Gaekwar
of Baroda.

The recent visit of the Duke of
Connaught to the Canadian forces in
France has produced a good story,
according to a dispatch from Ottawa.
A Canadian Major General entertained the Duke in his dugout to
luncheon, while the Germans began
to shell this particular spot. According to the Major General, the
Duke took the shelling calmly, simply remarking: "This is a present for
uncle." The reference to the relationship between the Duke and Emperor William of Germany caused
much amusement.
Girls with blue eyes can earn from
$5 per week more in munition factories than girls with black, brown or
hazel eyes, says a London dispatch.
When girls apply for employment
in these factories the first thing the
managers notice is the color of their
eyes.
"Others things being equal," the
overseer of a great department told
an American, "we always put blue-
eyed damsels in charge of dangerous
machinery, or get them to work in
the high explosive section, known as
the  'danger zone.'
"Experience has shown that girls
with blue eyes (and the same applies to men) have cool, calculating
unemotional temperaments, which
render them more reliable in emergencies than their black and brown-
eyed sisters.
"Gray-eyed girls come next in
value, then hazel and finally brown
and black-eyed damsels.." — Daily
News,  Nelson.

In this day and age it is hard to

that her skirt is too short. A
few girls, however, on cross-examination, will admit that the carpenters
are cutting the floors lower this year
than   last.—Emporia  Gazette.
Rare Laughter
In times of peace the King's laugh
was often heard at dinner as he conversed with his friends. But since
the war his intense feeling of anxiety
as to the trend of events has made
him silent and absorbed. One night
a merry lady at dinner diverted him,
and for once he laughed long and
heartily. "Thank you for being so
funny," said the Queen to her afterwards; "that's the first time I've
heard the King really laugh for a
year."
