Vancouver.
Christmas is no day of rest for the
letter carriers and postonice officials.
Intse men have to work hard, whtie
all tlie rest of the world ls holiday-
making, and the very pleasures of the
public go to make their toil more arduous than ever. The rush of Christmas mail is proverbial, and it is only
the self-sacriticing labor of the clerk
and carrier that brings the cards and
letters, the good wishes and loving
presents Into the homes of those anxiously expecting them.
This year the officials have a great
congestion of business to cope with.
Owing to the trains being stalled up
the line, three huge mails were delivered one after another on Saturday evening and Sunday morning,
while another was due some time during last night. All of these were
packed with greetings from friends
and relations in the east. British Columbia is still largely a country of
immigrants, of people, all of wbose
relations live in another part of the
world. Some have come from Ontario or other eastern provinces;
eome from across the seas, from
Great Britain, and the far plains of
Russia, or the sunny slopes of Italy.
For all of these Christmas   means a

Lots Stll Well.
It seems that some people will buy
real estate, even while the Christmas turkey is on the market, and
tbe land agents noticed some falling
off ln business last week as compared with the activity of the preceding
period, when everything from suburban property to coatiy inside lots was
changing hands freely. Prairie inquiry was perhaps the feature of the
six days' trading. When it get*
really cold on the praries, the residents there begin to talk of British
Columbia, and their minds turn to the
warmer weather of the coast. Several Northwesters have been ln the
city, and still are bere, looking over
New Westminster property and buying cannily here and there. One sueii
investor has bought $25,000 worth of
property already, and has not yet
finished, so good does this town look
to him.
At least one $50,000 deal was pulled
PEACE RIVfR TRANSPORTATION
HAS GREAT POSSIBILITIES
How the .Great North Lands of British Columbia Can be
Opened Up���Development Held Back By Lack of Supplies���Writer Speaks From Experience.
By Hugh Savage. All Rights Reserved
There should be no need to remind
the people of tbe Lower Mainland
of the relation of transportation to
wealth. "Let him who seeks a monument look around him." Neither
should the necessity of looking ahead
require an apostle in this or any other western city. Attention is Just
now drawn to the Peace river country, meaning the vast areas of bush
and prairie to the east of tbe Rockies, all capable of yielding fruits of
the earth, and which Joined to tho
Pacific with a ribbon of steel, sball
make the coast cities cornucopias indeed.
But this far away land is not the
only "Peace  River country," for let

despite the approach of the holiday.
Property along Sixth strei t ln this
neighboring municipality was per
haps the easiest to sell, but comparisons are not of much value, for
chance or advertising may bunch a
number of buys during a ceUain period in one sub-division, while a day
or two later another becomes the center of activity.
Sapperton is by no means dead.
Merrs. McQuarrie brothers report a
steady flow of purchasers, and deals
in this district were being put
thro.'.^h all tbe time by other firms
east and west of the Rockies. Broad
ly speaking, the land west of the
range is timbered and criss-crossed
by other mountain chains, and offers
at present more scope for mineral development than for agricultural settlement, although In the myriad valleys the latter wlll undoubtedly come
to pass later.   But, east of the moim-
and Nechaco systems at Fort Qeorge
wltb the country lying east of the
Rockies, and stretching away to tho
Arctic itself.
To Improve Waterways.
To make thla navigable, from Summit lake to the last portage, for a
scow carrying 15,000 to 20,100 rounds
of freight, It ls suggested that Crooked river be confined to a channel of
eight to ten feet wide, and the larger
rocks removed. It would probably
cost not less than $20,000 to build
one mile of railway in this country,
and an equal sum would, it has been
estimated, suffice to straighten out
the worst curves on the Crooked, and
put both it and tbe Pack river into
good shape tor scow traffic. This ia
enough for present requirements. Later lt would appear feasible to dam
Summit lake, where the water could
be raised some six or eight feet, and
to place locks in the Crooked and
Pack rivers, so as to render the entire route navigable by small steamers. This would give 262 miles via
the Parsnip and Peace and a further
175 miles on the Findlay brings this
Upper Peace navigation to 437 miles.

Exchange of   Compliments   Between
Magistrate and  Police���Pleasant
Relations During Year.
An exchange of seasonable compliments marked the closing of the
police court on Saturday. Chief Brad-
Is uch pleasant relations durlpg the
trate Edmonds with a handsome gold-
beaded umbrella, and the magistrate
replied with a box if cigars for the
force, with which he said, he had had
sDuch pleasant relations during tho
past year. The pollce and he had always worked ln harmony and be
hoped that the same sympathy would
exist between tbem during the coming year.
The police can make allowances as
well as other men. and only five
drunk* were netted on Saturday nlgbt
although an undlscrlmatiog zeal might
possibly have filled the cells to overflowing. However, those who celebrate Christmas too well have sometimes to be saved from themselves,
and all are not sufficiently strong to
resist the temptation to excessive festivity.

morning the first servant of the public turned up to see that everyone

Figures    for  the    Incoming    mail
have of course not been made    out
yet, but lt is interesting to note that
the record  day  for out-going  postal
oiders   was   about  two   weeks   ago,
showing wbat a large part Euro peon
remittances play in this business. According to the postmaster the Hindu
trade this  year  was    much    lighter
than laat.   He does not attribute this
to any reduction In the amount of
money sent bome by the men of India but rather to the opening of the
Fraser  mills   branch    office   where
many of them transact their business
now. The largest day's sale of money
orders totalled *2vl  oidors,  and  the
general run showed about a 40 per
cent increase over that of last year.
The heaviest day for out-going mall
was hut Monday, while all through
the week countless letters have been
passing through the hands    of  the
mailing clerks.   Stamp sales averaging $300 a day prove what a rush of
business has been done, this figure
comparing with about $200 last year,
thui showing an increase of 60 per
cent.

Out Of the. the preliminary development of this

with the fact that lt would do away
with the difficulties which now beset

mineral enterprises which have aK-
ready made a small beginning. The
chief drawback to the country at present ls that between McLeod) lake post

feasible to run steamers drawing ����n��

water throughout tht season, over tbo

efect might be to arouse resentment
among the Republican advocates lo
China that wouid not only endanger

In regard to the rumors of intervention by England and Japan, or

The Typhoid Trail.
The circumstanial evidence collected some four years ago was very
strongly against Miss Mallon. It appeared that ln nearly every home
where she went to cook typhoid fever
would break out, and with no apparent cause. Wells, food supply, and
other familiar sources of infection
were carefully examined, but in none
of them were the typhoid germs detected. Finally suspicion rested on
Mary Mallon, although her appearance must have been strongly in her
favor. She was a buxom, hearty woman, approaching forty, and was
never ill. She resented the lnslnua-
i tion that she was a walking arsenal
of deadly germs, who had caused 26

In lay elides the case his produced
I a good deal of criticism of the car-
I rier theory. In the opinion of tlw
P'ovidence Journal the episode Is on
| a par with witchcraft. Others ex-
r^tss the conviction that germs that
' are capable of doing any damage to
j their host are incapable of injuring
anyone else, and they decbre that
doctors should look elsewhere than
ln "Typhoid Mary" for the germs that
caused so much typhoid. The common-sense view would seem to be
that in the event of the carrier theory
being accented as fact, and the hostility of the Immune carrier's germs
being established, the host, of the
germs should be handsomely recompensed for any restrictions placed upon his liberty in tbe interest of the
public. People who wish to be free
fiom the danger of typhoid are usually willing to pay for it ,and whether
they pay a medical man or an Immune carrier is a matter of indifference to them.

SIR G. NEWNES CALLS
SELF "AVERAGE" MAN
London. Dec. 24.���There is hope for
the "average" man ln the career of
Sir G. Newnes, aa told ln his biography by Huda Fredericks. Tbe son
of a Free Church pastor, he was born
ln Shropshire and passed through
the school without attracting marked attention and without winning student honors. Then he went Into a
London business house and gained
distinction with the flrm becauae of
his ability to add throe columns of
figures at a time and for his great reliability.
He conceived the Idea that a paper
devoted to publishing little things
that were bright would be a success,
but he did not have the money to finance his Idea and tka men who had
the money smiled at the proposition.
Newnee was a vegetarian and to
make enough money to carry out his
Idea of publishing bright little things
he went into the restaurant business
and soon had funds sufficient for the
other work. Then he started Tit-Bits
winning fame, fortune and a baronetcy In rapid succession.
He Was Too Poor.
One of the most pitiable cases ln
Wall street is that of a prominent
speculator who was recently approached by an old friend for a loan
of a couple of hundred dollars.
"My dear fellow," said the speculator, with tears streaming down his
cheeks, "my extravagances keep me
poor. Why, it costs me $40,000 a year
to live. If I could only restrain my
profligate impulses I would love to
help you."���New   York  World.

P. R��T:NS' MARKET
for the highest quality meats
There are 100,000 males in British
Columbia that will have to spenJ
Christmas day without a mate. This
may be all ver}' well for tbe ladles ol
tbe province, but it is quite as pleasant for the out-numi>ering men. Probably the ladles will say they pity the
surplus, but tbey will not worry much
about them while things remain as
they are. But, after all, I doubt
whether these men are so unhappy as
the girls may like to think. Kipling
said, "Woman ls only woman, whir.:
a good cigar is a smoke," and Kipling
is generally pretty nearly right. Ulris
are all right as far as they go, but the
' question is do they go far enough.
For myself I have known few girls to
go ar far as a bottle of whisky but of
| course, that goes a good  long way
! with some  men.    But there   lt   Is.
! There are other creature comforts be-*
side women. Don't mistake me. I'm
not saying women are not the best of
all, but more than enough of several
good things may be as good as
enough of the best���and there ls such
a thing as sour grapes.
But to return to those other creature comforts of which I was speaking, when I interrupted myself .1
mentioned whisky and cigars. Then
there ls punch and port, a kettle on
the bob, and carpet slippers, and all
these things go far to make up fot
the lack of a wife or sweetheart. A
romance might be written round carpet slippers alone, but the man who
takes his best girl out on Christmas
day bas to wear a pair of patent
leather shoes, or imagine himself disgraced forever ln her fair eyes. But
the bachelor, the genuine bachelor,
who, while recognizing tbat mau is
but mortal yet does not waste his
days repining his single blessedness
need never leave his house on Christmas, need never even dress himself.
��� All that is necessary ls a bottle and
a friend and someone to bring him
j up a steak   and   plum   pudding  and
1 there he is, happy for the day. ut
course you may ask, who will bring
up that steak but one of the eternal
feminine brigade? Well, that miy be
so, but every woman' can carry
steaks for four or five men, so that

Sherman law prosecution?
Will the large consumers of Britain and other nations, Impressed by
the spectacle of the British government taking sucb action, be coa
strained to boycott American prod
ucts?
To these paramount questions the
reply, not only by the packers but by
others Interested ln concerns under
flre by the government are: "We do
not like the prospect." Prophecies
^^^^^^^^^ , are made "under breath," as those dl-
At the beginning of the second per-; rectiy interested regard tbe situation
as one of so delicate
After a fast, evenly-contested game
on Saturday, the Rovers beat the HI-!
bernlans at KecHeation park, Vancouver.   The New Westminster team put ���
up a  flue Kgame throughout, and al-'
though the tight was a close one deserved their win.   The whole of the
flrat half passed without either side
being able to obtain a decided advantage and neither   team   was able to
penetrate Its opponent's defence. Collier, who kept goal for the Rovers,
put up a great game, and kept his and
up stoutly.
Ml *$(��
iod the New Westminster boys put
a different complexion on the game.
For .iibout twenty-flve minutes they
had the rival team beaten, and acored
twice, Davis netting on both occaslqn
after good work by Hayes.- The first
goal came from a hard shot from the
latter which the goal-keeper stopped
Just about tbe line. To make matters certain Davis charged down and
netted the ball beyond dispute. The
second goal was scored by tbe same
player from a good centre by Hayes.
After this tbe balance of play swung
��"i��enly, until about eight minute* be-
**re time was called, when the Hibernians at last got past Collier to
score their only point. This seemed
to put fresh life Into the home side,
and they pressed their attack dangerously until the whistle blew, but
the Hovers' sound defence prevented
their registering another tally.
Ihe following was the lineup for
the Rovers: Collier, Lyon, McMillan, Kraser, Bruce, Melklejohn, Hayes,
('arse, Davis, Calrnduff and Walker.
A city league match will be played
Mils morning at 10 a. m., when the
City team will turn out at Moody
square against the Sapperton aggregation. A good game should result, as
the men from tbe East End are playing well this year.
The senior amateurs out-classed the
72nd Highlanders on Saturday afternoon, when they beat their visitors
by three goals to nothing at Moody
square. The Highlanders played their
Usual pluck losing game, but It was
no good as the locals were too good
in evtry department of the game and
held their opponents,, well in hand.
An appeal against Tim Mahoney's
decision, which gave tbe Cedar Cottage team a penalty kick and their
winning goal in their match against
the B. C. E. R. has been lodged by
the losers. This was a hard game,
and was only won by the odd goal secured In the way described above.
The B. C. E. R team claim that the
penalty kick was Improperly awarded.
An important meeting of the Sen
ior Amateurs will be held tomorrow
evening at Mr. Ryall's office. This
will probably be the last occasion on
which Mr. Beaten, who bas so long
been connected with the sport, wlll
appear lp his official capacity. It la.
understood that the accounts wlll he
regulated at the meeting, oo that Mr.
Heaton will be able to pull out with
everything in shape.
The High School football team will
; lay St. Andrew's at Vancouver to
morrow at Recreation Park. Kick-off
is timed for 10.46 a.m, and the team
win leave New Westminster on the
9 a. m. tram. The following Is the
line-up: J. P. Gilley, E. R. Gilley,

Government Not to Aid.        ���
The Indicted packers obtain but lit
ftle consolation from Washington.
Tbey,are Informed Indirectly that the
exclusion of the meat packers wlll not
be made a matter of diplomatic nego
tla tlon.
The state department officials, 11
was said, are firm In their averment
that while the anti-trust proceedings J
were not Instituted for the purpose ol
destroying the packers' business ll
is perfectly within the rights of any
foreign government to cease to
bave business relations with any
American corporation charged by
the United States government with
being an illegal combination.
Tbe packers are fearful of the ultimate result of their disbarment from
competing for the British army and
navy contracts, which amount to ap
pr-jjslmately $18,000,000 annually.
' While the Chicago packers have
had a practical "lease" on these contracts for several years, they are for
' .""ly & small part of the meat export
I a*. ... ...��
ed.
Russia, Germany, Prance, Italy and
Japan are heavy purchasers, both
through the government and dealers
wbo supply the reople of those nations. Tbe by-product market is also
a large one.
Fear Boycott on Products.
While the embargo against the
packers does not refuse their products
entry to England, It ls feared that the
government's action will serve as an
example which private purchasers
and consumers will follow, not alone
against the "beef trusts," but against
all other American "trusts" now being prosecuted. In that event, tbe
packers declare, European capital
would in a short time obtain control
of the entire business and practically
wipe out the exportation of products
from the United States.
None of thii Indicted packers would
be quoted yesterday as to their per
sonal views. Tbey acknowledged
that the situation was alarming.
In financial circles, however, it
was said that a reduction in the re-
tall prioe of fresh meats may result.
The refusal of the British government to accept the bids, leaves an extra supply on hand, of whicb they
will have to dispose. The producers,
or farmers, however, it is said, will
be tlie ultimate losers, as lf cheaper
prices prevail they will be made to
suffer.

"NA-BRU-CO DYSPEPSIA
TABLETS
hMlnetnlVilatHU"
There is only one explanation for the
numbers,of enthusiastic letters that we
receive praising Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets, and that is that these tablets
certainly do cure any kind of ste:aach
trouble.
Here is a typical letter from Miss
Eliza Annsworthy, Canso, N.S.:
"It is with pleasure I write to inform
you that your Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets have proved of great value to
me. I tried remedy after remedy but
without any lasting good. Having heard
of your ta'blets curing such cases as
mine 1 decided to give them a fair trial.
They proved satisfactory in my case."
The remarkaifle success of Na-Dru-Co
Dyspepsia Tablets is such a success as
can only come to an honest remedy,
compqnndcd according to an exceptionally good .formula, from pure ingredients, ty expert chemists. If you are

Gave Instructions to Gamekeeper and
Ran Inte Danger.
Suicides often adopt ingenious methods, but the art ol the felo de se seems
not to have advanced materially during the centuries. The modern case
oi a heavily insured broker who on a
feigned hunting trip stood bare-legged
in a quagmire for hours and so wilfully contracted a fatal pneumonia, is
matched in cleverness by one tive hundred years old. The following iacts
are well vouched 'or, and, indeed, were
never questioned:
Sir William Hankford, a judge oi
the King's Bench in the reign ol Edward III.. Henry IV., Henry V. and
Henry VI., and at the time of his,
death Chief Justice of England, was
a man of melancholy temperament.
He seems to have contemplated cui-
cido the greater part of his long life.
and during his later years the ideu
became a fixed purpose. The act was
of peculiarly serious consequence in
those days, for the reason the law
treated it as a capital crime. The offender was buried at the cross road-.
with a stake driven through his body,'
and all his goods and property were
forfeited to the Crown, to the utter
truin of his family.
Hankford made good use of his wits
and succeeded in accomplishing hi*
purpose without incurring either unpleasant penalty. He gave open and
notorious instructions to hi* gamekeeper, who had been trouble with-
poachers in the deer preserve, to chai
IN THE GARDENS OF JAPAN.
Where Growing Things Are Trained to
Represent Btssts snd Drsgons.
In all the world there sre no peoplt*
to whom nature makes a stronger
appeal then to the Japanese. Even
the poorest devote ns much space a*
possible to gardens, Rnd they are
jiot ordinary little enrfjen1* such u*
we know, hut are like exquisite hits
of fa'ryland. In them are often found
various forms of dwarf tre.-s and
shnfbs whicli are perfect from root
|o hranch and leaf. Trees that wiil,
under ordinary conditions, reach a
^height of from 30 to 50 feet are kept
down to hut two to four feet.
The wealthy, who, of course, can
affoid the space, are great for dwnrf-
infi many kinds of vegetat on. Minute lakes, tiny creeks and rivulet*,
with mjniature waterfalls, surrounded by al! thut nature provides, are
seen in the more expensive gardens.
Another fad among the; Japanese is
tbe fantastic in nature. Many tree*
and shrubs and, in fact, every type
of plant that can be trimmed and
trained to represent Some form ol
animal life, are so treated tbat they
form great beasts, huge dragons and
reptiles.
It seems to give the Japanese ga'-
dener great pleasure if he can cause
a tree or vine to grow in some curious or uncommon way. He loves to
see what ha can make it do that is
odd. Upright growths in trees are
tra:ned   to   droop   like   willows,    ai^
r          ,, .                   .-   ..    ,  .             . i weepinc branches ol the willow and

he purposely crossed the keeper's
path, and upon challenge made motions of resistance and escape. Thc
faithful servant, failing to recogniz-
his  master,   followed   instructions   to
grow directly opposite to that which
j nature has provided

The whole truth ol the affair was
common knowledge, but it was impossible to establish a case of suicide by
legal proof. The servant was protected by his instructions. Hankford had
honorable burial and his estate paired to those whose interests as nei,<
he had so wisely considered.

The Eye of the Soul.
The very striking addrtss on the
existence of soul in man. delivered
by Prof. Macdonald at Portsmouth.,
England, has greatly interested meit
of science, and as Prof. Stirling said,
it was seldom that an address "so full
of suggestion for further valuable research" had been delivered.
Prof. Macdonald began by develop
ing a most ingenious view of the making oi tho eye in man "as perfect an
optical instrument as could be made
as to a full knowledge of the part play- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
*<\ by matter and special arrangement* an'd" prices have advanced until now
if matter in reflecting refractory and a fu]] gr0Wn male timber elephant is
absorbing  light."   and   this   eye   wa.-    worth   about    $2,300   and    a    f.-male
estates in Japan has over 30 varieties
and non" of the hushes is more than
rive inches in height. The flowers
range from the size of a pinhead to
tiu head of a tack. The color and
fragrance are both there, however,
and the bushes are filled with thorns,
but so small they scarcely penetrate
the hand.
Sunflowers no larger than a penny,
growing on thrifty stalks eight inches
in height, are another novelty.
Elephants Are Valuable.
What is -an elephant worth? A \"��\
dealer who once uttached the pachydermatous part of a circus, which ate
up a week's profits in one day,
wouldn't give a cancelled stamp for
one, but in Siam It's different. A
consular report says that "roughly
estimated the numher of domesticated
elephants in Siam is ahout 3,000. The
supply  has   heen   decreasing   yearly
formed   in  the  embryo  before  direct
light couid reach it.
This analogy he used to help the
belief that man had a soul. His Brain,
like his eye, was affected by mysterious causes. He argued tbat "aucr
phenomena as sleep and deep anaesthesia farniliariz> us with tiie fact that
lint mind was not necessarily always I
associated with the brain, but only
witVi this when in a certain condition.
. . . It was still possible that the
bruin was an instrument traversed.
iTCL'iy as the ear by sound, by an unknown Influence which found resonance within it." .'
In tiiis connection he could not. he
said, avoid the worjd "soul." As in
the case of the eye, it was natural to
suppose the existence of "some ex-'
ternal agent" over and above natural'
selection which "would have done no
more than assist in the process." In

25 years, but not in full vigor until
35. The length of life is 80 to 150
years, and the average weight is
about three tons."
The   Screw. |
The invention ol the screw is generally attributed to the old Greek
Archimedes, from all accounts one of
the greatest scientific thinkers and
mechanicians thc ancient world ever
knew. Tiie screw is one of the greatest things in mechanics, simple as 't
is, and adds immensely to the unaided
human power. It is claimed that one
nan, with the help of the screw, can
pi ess down or raise up as much a3
2u'i men can without it. In addition
to the invention of the screw, Archimedes invented the sunglass, various
devices for battering down walls and
