To the Editor The Nicola Herald:
Dear Sir -Some time in February last

named the "Lillonet Farmers' Institute,"

receipt, upon the back of which wat a
cuiiimuni.atiuii frnm the deputy minister
uf agriculture, promising all kinds of
theoretical help for farmers.
Now, sir, theory and a blackboard are
all very well, hut I imagine that all the
thenry in B.C. will be found incapable
nf cutting that excellent crop uf thistles
whieh nne observes when guing through
the Shalons Reserve.

For yenrs settle"-. of the
Nicola Valley have been promised a railway through lhe
valley,  and  although   every
year a start was to he made, it
did not   materialize   until last
Slimmer.      Now that  the railway has practically heen completed tothe   town of  Nirola,
numerous   industries are   getting in   shipe.      During  this
year capitalists have  taken up
mining properties and   are engaged in developing the same,
which will, in a short time he
regular shippers   to the  smelters.    Already a car of coppf r
ore   has heen   shipped hy the
railway to Tacoma, and this is
only a start,     It is claimed by
all the  mining men   who visit
the different mining   camps in
Nicola,  that  the showings are
wonderful and* predict a great
future.   On all the properties
which   work   has   heen done,
they   have  shown  up   hetier
than was anticipated and prospecting and development work
is being   earnestly  continued.
With the large amount of coal
lands   which will   shortly   be
opened up,  Nicola Valley wil*
he the scene ol great activity,
with   mines,     collieries    and
smelters    working   day    and
night.     Everything necessary
for a husy district is  here and
capital is now endeavoring to
the authorities, this year only
one trap has been reported,
which Ins since heen removed.
The fisheries inspectors should
make trips to different streams,
or, if he is unable to do so, to
accept a report, and after investigation, prosecute the par

I.,    evening 1 was talking
With an edimr aged ami gray,
Who told me nf a ilieam he had,
I ii.ink 'twas yesterday,
While suiinziug In his nthce,
The visiuu came lo view,
Fur he saw an sngel enter
Hi.���- . i in garments while snd
Slid the aim-1 "I'm frum heaven,
The Lurrt j__M sent me duwn
Tu nring y.m .p tu gi,.ry
And put un ynur gulden crnwn,
You've been a Iriend tu evi-ryone,
Aud worked   hard day  and uitht;
You have siiiiported many thousands
And Iroiu  few received  your pay,
So we want you uu in g ury,
Fur ynu haie labored hard,
And the _nod Lord is preparing
Your eternal just leaard."
Then the angel and the editor
Started up towards _loty's _ate,
But when passing close to Hades,
��� _ ���
The angel murmured, "Wait,
1 luve a place to show you,
It's the hottest place in hell,
Where the ones that  never paid }ou
Iu torment alwtys dwell."
And, behold, the editor saw there
His uid subscribers by the scure,
Aud g ahhiug up a chair and fan
lie wished fur nothing more;
But was hound 10 sit and watch them
As lhey sizzle, sume and hum,
And his eyes would rest on dehtors,
WhicheverVsy he'd lurn.
Said the angel. ''Cunie DO, editor,
There's the pearly gate I see,"
But the editor only muttered,
"This is heaven euou_h fur me,"
