fun. The guessing competition proved
the most successful hit of the evening's
entertainment and the result was a tie
between Miss Gertie Carrington, Mrs.
Roberts and Miss Wardell, who had
been successful in guessing twenty-three
out of the twenty-four correctly. On a
draw being made Mrs. Roberts won the
prize. Up to the time of going to press
we have been unable to obtain the name
of the winner of the b<*l>y prize. An
enjoyable program of musical selections

through during the evening and was
Dr. Fagan, provincial health officer, I well   received.    Refreshments  were
announced last week that the Dominion
government had come to the assistance
of those interested in the proposed
British Columbia tuberculous sanitarium by offering a grant of 400 acres of
land located at Fish lake, which offer,
Dr. Fagan stated, would be accepted.
Fish lake lies about ten miles northeast
from Mammet lake, is about twenty-
four miles north of Nicola and sixteen
miles south of the C. P. R. main line.
The altitude of the lake is some 4200
feet above sea level. This altitude is
considered a little too high to be suitable
for the general sanitarium, and several
served in the course of the evening and
proved not the least enjoyable part of
the evening's entertainment.
A hearty vote of thanks to the host
and hostess of the evening, which found
voice in the singing of "For They Are
Jolly Good Fellows," followed by "Auld
Lang Syne," brought one of the most
successful meetings of this youthful organization to a close.

!   The government is to be congratulated on the successful issue of their negotiations, which will allow of a large
influx of much needed white labor,
which is sure of employment and at
good wages.
Old Timer Shuffles Off
John Kelly, a native of Ireland, aged
66 years, died suddenly in the provinoial
properties along Kamloops lake at ani^l at Kamloops last week.   He had
foi some time been an inmate of  the
average altitude of 1100 feet have been
selected as the best possible location
for tbe institution, and one of these will
eventually be chosen. None of these
locations is more than twenty miles
from Fish lake snd it is intended to use
it as whst might be termed an auxiliary. If it is found that the finances
will stand the outlay, small houses will
be erected on this land, and under other
circumstances, tents will be erected for
the accommodation of those suffering
from the ravage's of the white plague.
The lower altitudes, Dr. Fagan points
out, and the environment of Kamloops
lake, are exactly suited to consumptives
in the second and third stages of the
disease. The establishment at Fish
lake will be used for those who are
clashed as incipient consumptives and
therefore are physically stronger than
the others and able to live in a rarer
atmoiphere. The land mentioned can
therefore be put to valuable use in hastening the recovery of convalescents
and bringing about the quicker healing
of those who place themselves under
treatment before the disease obtains a
serious hold upon them.
Dr. Fagan hopes to be able to ar-
rango for the starting of work upon the
building it Kamloops lake in the early
spring and expects that the undertaking
will be so far completed by the fall, so
that it will be possible to accept patients.
Dr. Fagan is confident that the success of his pet scheme is at last practically assured and as a practical demonstration is already planning an appropriate opening for the institution, which,
he feels sure, will do much to promote
the general health and happiness of the
people of this province. It is his intention to run an excursion to Kamloops
lake ss soon as the building is ready for
occupancy. All the business men and
others interested in Vancouver and Victoria and other points on the coast will
be invited to make the trip. He pointl
out that the journey to the interior is
pleasant in the fall of the year, presenting an ever-changing variety of
the grandest scenery to be found anywhere in the world, from the time the
train draws out from Vancouver.

time ago and knocked about town, ultimately finding his way to the gaol for

LOCAL NBWS.
Mrs. Hunter is laid up with an attack of pneumonia.
Bert Goodison, of Cottlee, was a Nicola visitor Wednesday.
Harold Matthews is now convalescing
from an attack of la grippe.
D. Dodding and Mrs. Dodding, Lower
Nicola, were in town Saturday.
Rev. D. K. Allan leaves on Friday's
stage for a meeting of the Presbytery
at Enderby, B. C.
That the government is fully lli?�� u,
the i.i'cessity of supplying British Columbia with more of a desirable clash of
laborers is demonstrated by the fact
that not only has an arrangement been
entered into with tlie Salvation Army
for the encouragement of immigration
here, but negotiations liave been practically completed for the inauguration of
a sped*', transportation rate for the
benefit if settlers coming from the old ""T
country I o the Pacific coast.
The pr.'\ ncial government has been
successful in securing from the C. P. R.
a rate for inrrjgrants from Liverpool
to Vancouver at $40. The details have
not all been settled yet, but if anything
the rate will liVery be under the figure
named. The news ha? been confirmed
by Hon. R. G. Tatlov, Minister ll Finance and Agriculture.
Mr. Tatlow says tha' egotist ions for
a cheap immigrant rr.to have being going on for many'months. He felt exceeding! 'ratifiel it 'he result. It is
expected that the new rate will go into
effect immedii tely on the opening of
the St Lawre ice river In   he spring.
Duties of Homesteaders.
The Department of the Interior states
that while it is quite true that the homesteaders have been permitted to absent
themselves for two months from their
lands, it is erroneous to say that the
two months will be counted as actual
-esidence on a homestead. There is no
pro\ Lion under the statute by which
concession could be granted.
The department is anxious that settlers
should be advised of the correct position of affairs.

A moit successful "At Home" was
held by the Young People's Guild at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Carrington
on Tuesday evening, There was a large
attendance present of members and
friends. Card games were indulged in
by many of those present and a most
amusing and interesting guessing competition in which all present took part
was the cause of endless laughter snd
The chinook of the past few days has
caused most of the snow to fade away

held in McGregor hall on Saturday last,
Rev. D. K. Allan occupying the chair.
The membership has increased and the
finances have been steadily maintained.
The following were elected on the board
of managers; D. Mclnnes, G. B. Arm

A very happy social event came off
last night when a merry throng of Nicola people took the residence of Mr.

by storm, and were entertained in right
royal fashion.' Dancing, music, singing
and various other forms of amusement
were indulged, in with rare enjoyment
until the "wee, sma' hours."

Nicola Valley Ooal A Coke Company to
Open Dp Large Seam.   Diamond
Vale Company Are Getting
Out Timber.
Work on the coal mines is making
good progress. The Nicola Valley Coal
& Coke Company has been for the last
two months supplying the local branch
with twenty tons a day from coal taken
out in exploratory operations. The dip
of the seam is now definitely ascertained, and as soon as the frost is out of
the ground work will be commenced on
the new portal. During December a
hundred and two feet of new drifting
was run, and in January ninety-eight
feet was drifted. This makes a total of
over four hundred feet of workings in
various directions. Test rises at various points demonstrate a uniform thickens ofeighteen feet six inches for the
seam. The new portal will strike the
seam almost half a mile from the pres-
ertone. From that point the tunnel,
��'Wch will be ��� three-compartment one,
w.il trend to the northwest, angling up
tho slope of the dip bo that all the coal
for several miles on the company's
property can be run out by gravitation.
The mines will also be drained by the
same means, thus obviating the necessity for using pumps.
Ver}' little outside work, beyond the
erection of necessary buildings, has been
attempted, on account of the recent excessive cold, but as soon as spring opens
great activity is expected The company intends to put in an equipment capable of handling eight to ten hundred
tons per day during the coming year.
The Diamond Vale Company is handling a sawmill and getting out logs to
cut timber and lumber for its sinking
operations, the plant for which is on
the way here. The company intends to
sink three hundred feet to its first coal
seam, and later to sink eight hundred
feet to the next seam.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Aspen Grove, B. C, Feb. 11, '07.
Dear Editor:-
During the past two months a portion
of the telephone wire extending between
Frank Garcia's residence and the school
hou i hf been inclined from its natural
position. The wire, which is about
seven feet from the ground, lies directly across the wagon road, thus making
a very dangerous obstacle to passers-by
both by day snd by night.
If you can find space in your valuable
paper to publish this notice you will

thin; that movement should be made
towards having it repaired.
Yours truly,

scriber would give us a "calling

credit was not good. Rather than
to cast I relkction against the honesty of a subscrilier to pay I small
debt, it is next to a necessity for a
home paper to continue sending
the paper after the time has expired. It is not necessary for the city-
dailies or weeklies to follow this
rule, as their subseriliers live at a
distance and are not personal friends
or acquaintances as is the case with
a majority of our subscribers. Our
subscribers should deem it an honor to know that we do not doubt
their integrity and continue to send
them tlie paper after their time has
expired. Should any desire their
paper discontinued they should notify us and remit to date if they
have not already done so.
In these days of strife between
two great political parties we must
remember that after all we are just
a band of brothers here on earth,
traveling from the cradle to the
grave. We live side by side, our
children attend the same school,
and after the smoke of the battle
has cleared away we still remain
friends and neighbors. Let the
bitter things go unsaid. At best,
life is short, and we get out of it a
full measure of sorrow. Let us in
our little community live as one
big, good natural family.
Bach year the poultry business
is becoming more lucrative and it
now assumes proportions that will

We heard a man the other day
kicking for a chance to work. He
was a false alarm, that fellow. No
man who wants work these days
needs to be without employment
ten hours. There is all kinds of

wages can be secured by good men.
The boy who saves his money becomes the banker, the merchant,

Some newspaper men are terrible
liars. In writing of a Dakota cyclone one of them said it turned a
well inside out, a cellar upside
down, moved a township line, Mew
the staves out of a whisky barrel,
and left nothing but the bung hole,
changed the day of the week, blew
a mortgage off a farm, blew all the
cracks out of a fence and knocked
the wind out of a politician.

From the large lumber mills the
report comes that lumber has not

as it is now, and the indications are
that the demand for all grades of

than it has been for quite a long
time. There is in fact an abnormal demand for it.
