fairly good condition and tlie evening was till Mil tli could be desired; the costumes were numerous
mul of every design from Mie
small imp to the tall clown. Uncle Sam and miss Canada went

At 9 o'clock the skaters were

The Judges did their work adiuir

of judging   so many costumes.
A large bonfire added to the

The Little Country Paper.
It's no sixteen-pa'-'e edition that ex
presses big men'- views,
And it's not rilled up with pictures',
nor with telegraphic news;
It isn't printed daily, with an "extra"
every hour,
And the editor's not bragging of hi.
influence and power.
It may have faults and error., but ai
these. I will forgive.
For it's printed in the country, 'way
back where I used to live,
It is only issued weekly, and it's not
made up for style,
But when it arrives I gladly put the
dai'y by awhile.
I don't read in its pages what the wise
and great men say,
But 1 see that "Silas Jiggers brought
some wood to town today,"
And that "Grandpa Parks is better,'*
or that "01.1 Bill Jones is dead,"
And it tells just what the parson in
liis Sunday sermon said.
I see again the f.ices of the friends I
used to know
In the dim and distant fancies of the
happy Long Ago,
And I read up in one corner that the
fall winds howl and blow,
And that "Uncle Nathan S uith pre
diets nn early fall of snow,"
Or that "Our debating club will giv-
a sociable next week.
At which our fellow-townsman, Ahner
Brotherton will speak."
There are never le.irned essays on the
questions of the day,
But it says that "Folks are looking
for another rise in   hay.*'
I can see no glaring headlines of the
last election  light,
But it eays that "Tom Shaw marries
Ella Edgerton tonight;"
And my thoughts somehow grow fond
er when the old folks' names I see,
Telling that 'Reverend Tomkin's wis
invited there for tea."
It may lie crude and homely—thai
same litlle country sheet,
And the make-up of its pages may he
rather obsolete;
It is damp when I unfold it and the
print is rather blurred ;
Yet U'b always note than welcome
and I read It's every word.
And no reading to a city man a greater joy can give
Than the little country weekly, printed where he used to live.

Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers-
As far back as tbe year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time,
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $850,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising: Mineral Lands.
Anderson lake and imiDGE eiver mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of  territory that remain  unprospected,
3.Jts^]shing aj^dJHjjj^^   Gj^o^ds^^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise, is here.    Mountain  sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound.    Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and  fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.

In the dry belt, and at, an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit may lie grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
