ting of one UT feel long and _i Inches
square.
Al nut fifteen y< ars ago ihe mill
eclipsed i Lis record by far in cutting
a fir -tick 136 feet long ,and 24 by 24.
Mlllmen of the city who know of the
circumstance say this is the longest

students, and the entertainment passed off without a liitc.h. everybody was
kepi amused and no wall flowers were
allowed. The decorations showed that
- ' pains and Skill had been taken
to attain the desired effect, and the
result wa.~ well worth the trouble. The
hall and rei < | Hon room were trimmed In blue and white, the college
colors, the assembly ball was nung
with evergreens, the aming room,
lighted with Chinese lanterns, was
decorated In red bunting, giving a
pretty oriental appearance. A covered passage way ran from rhe mam
building where tne promanades were
held to the gymnasium, where the concert   was given.
The concert was opened j Princl-
i ij Slpprell with a few words of welcome to the ..nests. The glee club
followed the principal's address with
"Scots W'lia Hue." The rendering of
this song gave much credit to thr
work of Mrs. Howston, the conductor,
for the club has been organized lefes
than a month. Miss Burns, the Vancouver elocutionist, gave for a reading, "Tlie English Flag." by Kipling,
and an encore showed the appreciation of the audience. The baritone -��� I >
by H. Grant which came next, was a
lively little piece sung with energy,
ami justly received an encore, Both
of the numbi rs of the string quai ti tte
were pi ���(������ s of classical music and
were played with tho proper spirit.
The quartette was composed of .1. A.
Smith, Harold Robson, S. Robson, Mr.
(Jreenhalgh with Mrs. Grant for accompanist. The second part of the
conceit was a repel ition of the good
performances of the first, Miss Bums
was given a double encore for her
humorous recitation.
Twenty minutes was allow I e-
twoen the concert and the promades
for those presenl to fill out the ten
mim.ers on their promanade card, and
everyone hurried to tin- main building
to be ready for the Brsl march. The
halls of the college were a pleasing
spectacle to watch al this time. The
crowd of people swarming through the
bright rooms, pretty in their decorations, were of all classes, but the gay,
lively student was in the majority.
��� Only a bunch of college students can
carry to such a fullness the enjoyment
of last night. Even the solemn-looking theologians in their sewro-app ':'-
nig Prince Alberts wore a special
secular  smile   for     the   Occasion,     tile
fashionable men In their evening suits
i lost their stiffness and forgot to see
If their collars were m-lting, while
the faculty, thai austere group, relaxed so much as to go twice to the
dining room, the same as ihe bumble
"prep."
Supper was served from the time
the promanadlng started till after
midnight and as the route of tr'Tvel
tor the promanaders lay through the
dining hall ii was ever seen thai
the tables were kept filled. Tbe refreshments served were a fitting climax to the proceeding pari of the
evening, and the caterer, J, ffi. Kenny,
bad everything arranged to perfection.

ia; ams   iontained In the    C ma llan
Nr1. -       I    anese ui w -.n; er of Van-
couvi r.    In  part  ii  Is as follows:
"Minister  Hayashl   .��� cehBy    stati d

reduce i ol lal i tnd promised that
hereafter only the central governmem
would Issue passports. He demanded
thai the American government sh ml l
guarantee thai no exclusion act should

piled  that  the  president    could    n '
��� sin -li a guarantee, since n would I
be an act of dlscourl isj to ci ������ ic-s- ���
but lie would endeavor to pn ���
passage of exclusion legislation. A
pr -��� m ile negotiations arc approaching a satisfactory conclusion, but the
army mid navy headquarters are preparing tor possible emergencies.
"Il  is reported    thai    the    British
foreign minister bas given notice that
in the event of a Japan se-Amerli an
war,  Japan   could   not   count   of  England's aid, and not  only so, but  it Is
believed  in   Washington   that     no   nation but    France would give    aid   '>���'
Japan.   If Japan is to fight, she must
begin within the next  ninety days, or,
by  that  time  the American   fleet   will
have reached the coast  of California, j
Bul  our state    department    declares
there is  hope  for a  satisfactory con- I
elusion of the matter."
To say the least, Japanese sources!
of obtaining news are apparently different from those   of Canadian    and
American newspapers.

Monroe came down on the Princess
May and is a member of the curling
team that is going to Winnipeg and
eastern cities.
This creek is in the Indian river district, and the values per pan nave
ranged anywhere from a few cents to
$��a. The latter Is exceptional, but
shows that there is plenty of gold.
The old creeks, said Mr, Monroe, had
been finely combed and the ulay of
placer mining in the Yukon has gone
unless new discoveries are made, such
as in this instance. Quartz mining
has just begun and promises well. The
average struck in the creek is from
eight, to twenty-five cents per pan.

It Is to Northern Europe What
Wheat Crop Is to America.
Today the herring is hardly regarded
ns a luxury. Infleed, it is chiefly eaten
by those who can afford nothing else,
nnd yet 3,000,000,000 of these iish are
needed to supply the annual demand.
How this Inexhaustible, limitless yield
of the ocean has swayed the destinies
of nations Is strikingly set forth lu an
article by Harold Bolce in Ocean.
Despite the unremitting harvest by
predatory man nnd gull ami cannibalistic cod aud shark, the uneonqiiereil
armies of herring still continue to pop-
i ulate the- Atlantic with multiplying
hosts.
The Atlantic has been aptly called
the "herring pond." Indelibly associated ln the pnst with the economic and
political history of occidental mankind, the herring seems destined to
survive ns one of tho greatest factors
in the welfare of western nations. Today what the wheat crop is to America
the herring catch Is to northern Europe.
Few iiersons, even among tbe masses
that consume this fish, realize Its
economic importance. More than 8,000,-
000,000 herrings nre captured annually,
according to the latest estimate.
The weight of that annual catch la
over 750,000 tons.
It would require 28,000 freight cars.

A Doctor's Assistant. .
A doctor whose large practice hns
made nn assistant necessary was told
that the man he selected was hardly
competent.
"lie's good enough for what I want
him for," said the doctor. "1 don't
expect him to prescribe for my patients, but tri llsteo to their gossip. In
tunny cases the privilege of talking
over his troubles with the doctor constitutes the biggest part of n patient's
cure. I haven't time to listen to all
these complaints myself: hence the
need of nn assistant. This man is
good looking and sympathetic. Callers
will readily unburden their hearts to
him, then when they are ready for
real medical advice he can pass them
on to me."���Columbus Dispatch.

bcr of the volunteer corps which uow
ts defunct Ills clerkly services were
negligible and neglected, but when it
was brought to the notice of the di-
rectors they remembered his giartfcl
ardor and gave him a nice linTe sinecure. Another clerk was reported to
them as n really clever amateur painter. They saw his pictures. "Ii Is a
pity that such talent should be wasted
over ledgers," was the kindly verdict.
So they gave him a room at the bank

Why? Because dry blood won't show

Every One Should Hav* This In Mind
Because of Future Benefits.
It is not worth while to pause to
consider whether mon in olden
times placed o mercantile value on
frieud.-iiipg. The si_nilicance of the
modern application needs no justi-
lication. Friendship pays. Acquaintance pays. That is a wise
young man who looks to it that hi?
acquaintances are formed with a
view to future benefit to himself.
What does it profit any man to
know a lot of men who are only ordinary mortals with no capacity for
doing anything special or anything
especially well���merely men who
do a day's work at whatever they
have to do and who spend their
leisure time at the races, baseball
games or at the theater?
The men to know are those who
have a serious purpose in life and
who go on cheerfully toward the
goal, developing their powers meanwhile. At college a young man has
an excellent opportunity for selecting among his classmates companions for a future career, but if a bo-
is denied the advantage of a college
course, with its discipline and associations, and is cast into the huge
swirl of the commercial world without training he must make his
friends and get his start there. To
begin with, it requires no mercenary
foresight. No pleasant fellow need
be slighted because he probably cannot "be of use," but the importance
of spending little time with good
fellows is apparent when one has
i his way to make by his own efforts
in the world. Courtesy is always
! commendable, and courtesy costs
! nothing.   It helps everywhere.
The value of a lon# list of friends
and acquaintances to a commercial
i man isumo* obvious, for by his acquaintance, his popularity, he obtains   much   valuable   information
that helps when it comes to doing
business.    And the point is not to
overlook the opportunity to cultivate the friendship of those wliose
knowled_r' an.l wort',-, have already
1 advanced them to high position, for
their example inspires to emulation;
! thus association develops  our best
i powers,    and    their   counsel    and
I friendship are worth something ethically and financially.���Los Angeles

Tit For Tat.
A victim of omnibus pickpockets
determined to get even with them,
I so he put into his pocket a pocket-
| book containing only a slip of paper   on   which   were   written   the
words:
"This time, you rascal, you've
loat the reward of your labor!"
He got into the same omnibus
and waited, resolved to have the
first pickpocket that meddled with
him arrested. Twentv minutes passed and nothing happened, and. tired
of waiting, he got out, having assured himself that his pocketbook
was safe. He opened it, and in
place of hia white piece of paper
was a blue one. which he unfolded
and ��ead as fo!J_tr-:
"What a sly joker you are!"���

BIG TUNNEL AT FIELD
WILL  SOON   BE  FINISHED
Field, B. C, Feb. 7.���The work on
the big spiral tunnel which the C. P.
It. is now making through those
lowering mountains, Cathedral peak
and Mount Paptu. is proceeding so satisfactorily that it is probable tin^
transcontinental expresses of the company will begin to ran through the
tunnels next fall. This is the Information given by Mr. James A. Mac-
donnell, of t_e contracting firm of
Macdonell," Gzowski & Co., who are
building over a mile of tunnel work.
��The object of the tunnel is to avoid
the steep grade which, as all who have
travelled through to the coast will remember, calls for two or even tnree
engines to push and pull the train up
the "Big Hill" between Hector and
Field, at tha-jummlt of the Canad.an
Rockies. When the tunnels are completed, t'ne present mileage between
those two points will be increased
from four to eight miles, but the
grade will be reduced by exactly one
hundred [ier cent. There is one tunnel on each side of the river, one being 3200 feet in length, and the other
2800 feet, and a curious point about
them is that the exits will be almost
immediately below the entrance.
The tunnels are 17 feet wide arod
25 feet high, and progress is being
made at the rate of from 30 to 40
feet per day. The contractors, besides employing 500 men. hav installed two large compressor plants.
and active operations are being carried out at both ends of the tunnels.
As a matter of fact, the ends are
only about eight hundred feet apart.

The stormy weather of L'ae .   li fi m
days, by making  the roads heavy in
the country  ami  thus d-:erring    the
farmers from making the trip to town.;
caused  the   market to   be   somewhat
dull  yesterday.    Bui although the in-!
sTd.r   market   was   slower  than  usual.':
the auction wa.- rather more brisk and.
a number of animals changed hands
ai  good prices,  including  several  fine
milch cows.
Fowls felt ihe effeci of the passing!
Of I.ii' Chinese New Year and dropped':
again to the normal figure, averaging i
|6.S0 to J8.50, although several birds',
of better quality sold as high as $9 j
per dozen. Last week they were sell-j
'tig freely at $12. Chicks were!
plentiful and good hints found a ready
Bale at $G u> i~.
Thi. re was a very large Bupply ofi

tions. A large amount of local beef

' ties changing  hands  al   these  prices.
Butter is unchanged at 35c to 10c per
pound.
A few ducks were offered al $0 .and
$iu. and sold rea lily on quotat om .
Some gr ese were purchased at ?l and
$1.25.
Apples were rather scarci in comparison with former weeks, prooably
due to the fact that fl large consignments was on I oard the Ramona and
