Superintendent of education,

bi "lding and from his view of
the district as he had  seen   it
would advise a two room school
house with two teachers.    As
to the site that was up to the
people of the district to decide.
After motion referring to
two schools for the district had
ceen rescinded the question of
a site was brought up and secretary C'easby read the different propositions made to the
board of school trustees. The
site offered by William Voght
near the Coldwater river bridge
was recommended by the trustees as a central position and
on being put to the meeting
was carried.

submitted by the trustees for
teachers' salaries and incidental
expenditures amounting to

Protect The Poresn Wealth.
Dr. E. B. Fernow, dean of the faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto, in an address on "The Truth
About Our Timber," before the Canadian Club %tt Toronto the other day,
dealt with matters of special interest
to the people of this province, which
possesses such immense lumber resources. We quote from the report appearing in the Mail and Empire :
Every patriotic citizen should realize
the deplorable mismanagement of the
most valuable resource, and personally
exercise himself to secure improvement
and the first duty is to stop the fires."
He said that the Eastern forest had in
the last hundred years been slowly
robbed of its best values, and while the
government had, from the sale of timber, secured a certain amount of revenue which had made other taxation
unnecessary, the golden goose was now
nearly killed, and other sources of revenue would soon have to be found.
The worst feature of the mismanagement of a valuable property which
might have produced forever, was,
that after the timber was taken off
fires were allowed to run through the
slash and destroy the young growth���
the hope of the future. Dr. Fernow
impressed upon the audience the fact
that Canada was not rich in timber.
Canada was no doubt a woodland country, fifty per cent, of which perhaps
was covered with tree growth of some
kind, but the area throughout Canada
which at any time contained commercial saw timber was relatively small to
the size of the country. It was comprised in two widely separated regions
��� on the Pacific coast within 75,000
square miles, and on the Atlantic coast,
south of the height of Land, within
240,000 square miles, a total of about
200,000,000 acres. The actual area of
merchantable saw timber was not
known, but probably did not exceed
50,000,000 acres in British Columbia, or
about three hundred billion feet, and a
like quantity in the Eastern provinces.
The six hundred billion feet thus represented would meet the requirements
of the United States for not more than
fifteen or twenty y<,ars, although it
might supply Great Britain's consumption four times as long.
Walter Clark, provincial constable^
at Merritt, has been given leave of absence for a couple of weeks and will
take a well earned holiday. A special
will be appointed  during  his absence.
MINERS QUIT WORK
LABCR TROUBLE AT MIDDLESBORO
COLLIERIES.
Miners Join Merritt  Union.���Superintendent Will Not Employ
Union Men  at
The Mine.
All the Nicola Valley Coal
& Coke Co.'s Mines were
closed to-day to union men.
On Wednesday evening
nearly all the miners employed
by the Middlesboro Collieries
organized under the United
Mine Workers of America,
Thursday they were laid off on
the plea of not having any cars,
and to-day when the men returned to work were refused
on account of being union men,
although non-union men were
asked to work.
Frank H. Sherman, Superintendent of the U.M.W. of A.
of British Columbia, will arrive
the beginning of next week
from Fernie, and will take care
of the Miners' side of the
question.
Nicola Potatoes.
A correspondent recently wrote to
Hon. J. H. Turner, Agent-General for
British Columbia:���"It affords me much
pleasure to give you the result from
the Nicola (British Columbia) potato
seedlings which I obtained from your
office last March. One seed potato
which weighed 1 lb. 10 ozs. made 19
setts, and produced 53 lbs. Another
seedling, weighing 1 lb. 7 ozs., cut up
into 12 setts, and returned 50 lb. 8 ozs.
of excellent smooth potatoes. One
specimen weighed 1 lb. 7 ozs., and four
others scaled 4 lbs. 13 ozs. This result
was obtained from clay soil in three
vegetable gardens in Woodridings,
Hatch End, and in all the three seedlings gave over 153 lbs. of fine cooking
tubers.���Hatch End Pioneer, Middlesex.
The produce of 153 lbs were obtained
from 3 potatoes grown by R. H.
Winny, of Nicola, in 1907*
Christmas Rod and Gun.
Full of good things is the December
(Christmas number) of "Rod and Gun
and Motor Sports in Canada," published by W. J. Taylor, at Woodstock, Ont.
A specially written and finely illustrated account of the trip taken in the-
woods by the Premier and Surveyor-
General of New Brunswick, at the invitation of the organized guides of the
province, opens an exceptionally good
number, the high standard of which is
maintained throughout. Sportsmen of
all classes may be recommended to the
well written and informative article on
the Importance of Taxidermy, Ancient
Indian Customs is a fine reminder of
the difficultier the Indians experienced
in the matter of obtaining a living before the advent of the whiteman to the
North American continent. Physical
Culture at Home is the first of a series
of articles by an expert on a subject
which cannot fail to interest to all
sportsmen. In the Spirit of the North
will be found some fine verses, every
line appealing with strong force to every
lover of the wild but attractive north
country. These are but samples of the
many good things dealing with every
phase of sport in Canada, to be found
between the covers of a number surpassing in both quantity and quality
the best yet given by this leading
Canadian magazine. The illustrations
are specially notable and attractive in
this fine Christmas issue..

A Growing Business.
As an illustration of the growing business of M. J. Henry, the foremost
nurseryman of Western Canada, it
might be mentioned that recently shipments were made from his head nursery
3010 Westminster Road, Vancouver, to
St. George, Bermuda, to China, and to
Bellf ray Castle, the home of Sir Arthur
Middleton, Northumberland,   England.
Mr. Henry recently supplied the full
order for ornamental trees, shrubs and
viner for the Empress Hotel, Victoria.
This order was secured in open compe-
etion with many outside points. The
total weight of the shipment was over
four tons, probably the largest shipment ever se.it to a single purchaser on
Vancouver Island, this is only another
instance of the phenomenal growth of
this great industry.
Mrs. James Chapman, of Lower Nicola, spent a few days this week visiting
with Mrs. Bewley at Coutlee.
