Sleighing in Lillooet has been
good for the past few days, also
the "youthful's" and the "hopeful's" have been having the time
of their lives with the snow.
"Was you in the ark, grandpa"?
asked Lcla. aged four.
"Of course not, dear", he replied.
"Then why wern't you drowned"? she asked.
It will interest our readers to
know that Mr. P. D. Booth who
did considerable work in this district surveying some some four
years ago and who was a partner
of Mr. G. M. Downton is now a
Lieutenant in the Royal Artillery
and has been awardad the Military Cross for distinguished services at the Dardanelles.
Tailor—The postal service is in
a wreched condition. Friend-
Never noticed it. Tailor—Well I
have- During the last month I
posted one hundred and eighty
statements of accounts, with requests for immediate payment,
and, so far as I can learn, not
more than two of my customers
received their letters."
The German corresponded, Mr.
von Wiegand, whose account of
the German fleet defying the
British navy, whose vessels dare
not battle with the kaiser's, the
World publishes, has evidently
never heard the grandfather of
all comic stories. We refer to
that about the man driven under
the bed by his irate wife. "I will
be master in my own house. I
won't come out."—New York

What   Britain   Has   Done
American Paper Pays a Splendid
Tribute to Britain's Part
in the War
The Wall Street Journal gives
a very striking answer to the
question: What has Britain done?
It points out that while her navy,
her financial credit and a small
expeditionary army were all that
were asked by the allies, she has
swept the seas of German commerce, placed upwards of a million men in the field, and got
another two million in readiness;
has lent her allies more than
$2,000,000,000 and has conquered
every German colony except the
Cameroons. Continuing the Wall
Street Journal says:
"By her own enlightened system of colonial government the
Boers have wiped out the German colony in Soothwest Africa.
The French Canadians are fighting on the Belgian frontier, the
Irish are, characteristically, fighting in the thickest of the fray,
and the supposed seditious Hindoos and Mohammedans are cleaning up all the political gains in
Turkish Asia. And there is more
than this. If it were not for the
British mastery of the seas, where
would own export trade be? Even
with an uncertainty on the ocean,
the trade which our shortsighted
politicans grudge to the allies,
because Germany is in no position
to receive it, would not exist at
all. To leave out the argument
the invoilability of treaties and
the rights of neutral and peaceful nations, and the moral issues
involved, on the plain question
of advantage to our present and
future interests, can we ask bur-
selves, with any show of consistency or plausibility, What has
Great Britain done?"
New York customs show daily
outgo of $3,000,000 in munitions.
It is announced that the Roumanian government on December
7. ordered the mobilization of all
naturalized foreigners and foreigners under, the protection of
Roumanian laws, up to 40 years
of age.
Berne Dec. 6—Count Tisza, replying to a deputation from the
Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and the labor unions, who
said that the increasing cost of
living has made existence almost
impossible for millions of Hungarians, said that owing to the
ruthless and brutal control of the
seas nothing could be imported
from neutral countries, save
what those countries produce.
Herr Weisskirchner, burgomaster of Vienna, in a speech made
at the same time, accused Hungary of not having done all that
she might have done in sending
to Austria her superfluous cereals
and flower.
From the Firing Line
The following communication
was received this week by Mr.
Theo. Sweet. We publish it with
the express purpose of showing
the appreciation with which the
"Tobacco" (My Lady Nicotine)
is received by the "Boys" who
are giving their all to "Suppress
Tyranny."
15-11-15.
My Dear Friend:
I take now the first opportunity
of writing these few lines to you
in acknowledgement of your kindness in forwarding to me and
"us" through the Overseas Fund
the parcel of Tobacco and Cigarettes which I may tell you were
issued to us last night in the
trenches whilst under fire, and I
cannot express my gratitude too
much for same. Of course you
may not think you were doing a
deal in sending us on a present
of tobacco but I can assure you
that you have at least alleviated
one mind that was pondering
over where the next smoke was
going to come from for I may just
give you an incident that happened on our coming into the trenches a couple of nights ago. We
had been down at a rest camp
for a few days and on coming in
again the weather was 'fierce'
rain fell in torrents and the communication trenches that we have
to travel through to get to the
front line were over two feet
deep in water and mud and it is
at least an hours good march
through them so you can imagine
the state we were in when we
arrived at our dugouts only to
find them flooded, also, well, I
may tell you everything we
brought along with us was soaked
and what little tobacco we had
amongst us was spoiled, so you
will just realize for yourself how
welcome your present was to us
under such trying conditions and
at so opportune a time. Well my
kind friend I was doubly pleased
to think also that the present
had come from my or our Province of B.C. and I am glad to
see that those we have left behind are interested in our doings
out here it gives us confidence, I
can assure you, to know that the
same good spirit is existing in
good old B.C., by-the-way I hope
you will excuse me for asking a
little favor of you if it is not too
much, will you favour me by
sending me a few lines occasionally as I have no friends in B.C.
and it will be very interesting to
me if I can hear some news of
the Province for which I am
fighting, and I may tell you, my
heart and I was going to say my
future home lies in B.C. if I am
fortunate enough to pull through
this war. Well my dear friend I
hope you will excuse this uninteresting correspondence of mine
but it is the best I can do under
the circumstances (sitting in a
dugout), well I guess I will now
relieve you of the monotony of
trying to make out my poor writing so will conclude with best
wishes to you and yours I remain
yours very gratefully

The second great war council
was held in Paris on December 7
with representatives of England,
France, Russia, and Italy.
Ottawa—W. L. Hichens, David
Lloyd George's personal representative on the munitions board,
announced this morning that a
new member of the board had
been named in the person of Mr.
Perry who was at one time a
member of the British Colonial
office. Mr. Perry has resided in
Canada for some years as representative of a large banking

I wish I could get my wife to
come home, but she'll stick and
stick till the last dance ie over.
I'll tell you how to do it.
How?
Just dance three dances in succession with the pretty young
girl in the bright red dress, and
she'll take you home in a hurry.
A negre boy, while walking
along the street), pulled his handkerchief from his hip pocket and
struck at a wasp. He turned i.o
a man, and, returning the handkerchief to his pocket, said:
I thought I got dat ar ole wass
Didn't you?
No, sah; but I,—He snatched
out the handkerchief and clapped his hand on his pocket,
squatted, howled and said-
Blame fi didn' get dat ole

A sudden rich, but igonrant
man was on the beach at Alantic
City, watching a very fat bather
disporting himself in the serf.
He knew nothing of the tides,
and he did not notice that each
succeding wave came a little closer to his feet. At last an extra
big wave washed over his shoe
tops. "Hey, there!" he yelled
at the fat bather. "Quit yer
jumpin' up and down! D'ye
want to drown me." THE PROSPECTOR

Government takes Measures
to Widen the Market
for B.C
Lumber
Victoria, BC—The largest
market for B.C. lumber will
always be the neighboring
prairie provinces, the quantity consumed by Alberta,
Saskatchewan, and Manitoba
amounting to 60 per cent, of
the total production. The
actual amount, which in 1912
was seven or eight hundred
million feet, fell in 1914 and
1915 to about half that quantity. It is this loss combined
with the heavy fall in lumber
prices and the" falling off in
the amount of timber used in
B.C. itself which has brought
about depression in the lumbering industry of this province. With town and city
building operations on the
prairies at a standstill for the
time being,  with  the  con-
t.f
traction of new railroads
more or less completed, the
difficult problem of how to increase the consumption of
lumber in the prairies has
been pressing for solution.
An investigation on the
subject of lumber consumption on the prairies which the
Minister of Lands directed
to be made has disclosed that
buildings on the average
farm have not kept pace with
crop production. There exists a great need, which will
continue for many years, for
all manner of farm buildings
particularly for implement
sheds, granaries and barns
for live-stock. Nearly every
farm is without some building essential to really profitable farming. The prairie
agricultural authorities, of
course, have been fully alive
to this situation, and in all
three provinces have been
considering the issuance of
pamphlets dealing with the
need and advantage of more
up to date buildings on the
farms. They are encouraging farmers in every possible
way to go in for mixed farming, which, of course, cannot
be successfully carried on
without well designed buildings.
Inasmuch as the principal
material for all these buildings is wood, the results of
the investigation mentioned
made it evident that here lay
an opportunity to give real
service to the farmer which
would at the same time inevitably at the same time lead
to an increased use of lumber
An offer to co-operate with
the University of Saskatche
wan in the preparation and
publication of a complete series of bulletins on farm
buildings was cordially accepted by the Minister of
Lands, and for the last six
months or more officials of
the Forest Branch and the
College of Agriculture of the
University have been engaged in this work. Some of the
bulletins are now being delivered by the printer, and the
final one will be finished
shortly. The series comprises ten bulletins in all, and
covers the following subjects
1. Combination of  General
Purpose Barns for prairie.
2. Dairy barns, milk and ice
houses for prairie farms
3. Beet cattle barns for the
prairie farms.
4. Horse barns for prairie
farms.
5. Sheep barns for prairie
farms.
6. Piggeries and smokehouses
8. Implement sheds and granaries for prairies.
9. Silos and root cellars for
prairie farms.
10. Farm houses for prairie
farms.
These pamphlets are of
handy size, well arranged,
and contain illustrations of
the various plans. Besides
information dealing with the
use of buildings, and method
of erecting them, complete
bills of material are given.
The bulletin will thus assist
the farmer to decide upon
the designs for a building
and render it very easy for
him to estimate cost and to
order material.
An introduction to each
bulletin explains the objects
aimed at, and describes in a
general way the lumber industry and forest policy of
the province. A chapter at
the end treats of the merits
of wood as a building material, the quality of the various kinds of British Columbia
woods, the uses for which
they are best adapted. The
covers are utilized to describe
briefly the timber resources
of the province. Through the
farm journals and local prairie papers the farmers' attention will be drawn to these
publications, and by systematic distribution will be made
by the Department and the
prairie lumber commissioner
at Regina.
Altogether these bulletins
mark a new departure in
governmental activities in
connection with the lumber
industry and one which will
be watched with interest,
particularlysince the increase
of industrial production in
British Columbia depends so
seriously upon the utilization
of our immense forest resources and the successful
developement of the lumbering industry.
Uncle Ben, a very careful old
darkie, was a witness in a shooting case. " Were the shots simultaneous, uncle?" asked the
prosecuting attorney. 'Well boss,
you see, hit was dis way,' replied
the witness with great deliberation. "Dem shots come so close
togedder dat I can't be sho' ef
