STORY OF LILLOOET'S
WATER SUPPLY
By W. T. B.
Continued from Last Week.
The pipe arriving in the fall of
1902, being delayed on account of
rush of business, was stored for
the winter, it being too late to
lay that year. Easter, 1903, saw
the commencemeot of ihe work
and May 1st, its completion. In
due course the immense advantages of this service became apparent to everyone and the system
was more and more appreciated.-
From that time the supply has
bee.i regular and satisfactory* the
scheme of small gate valves s«-
curin£ immunity from frost and
thus enabling the consumer to
have an all year service. These
gate valves are kept closed in
summer, except for sluicing, and
ensure a clean system.
The pressure in mains is from
117 to 130 lbs. to the square inch,
thus giving great power for purposes of fire protection. Hydrants
and Ts are pt teed at convenient
points in the town. Through
private subscription, 700 feet of
fire hose has been purchased.
This hose thus enables any building in town o be reached.
The townspeople appreciate to
the full the efficiency of the water
service, combined with the extremely moderate monthly rental. This is realized the more
when it is remembered that the
monthly dollar covers irrigation
of gardens as well as purely domestic supply, and that the rates
which prevail in neighboring
towns similarly placed are much
higher. Obviously the revenue
to the Water Commissioner is
small, and it has been truly said
that if he ever should present the
system to the people, thus necessitating the appointment of a paid
supervisor by them, the rates
would need to be trebled to pay
for such services.
Before this system of distribution by pipes and nozzles was installed, sage brush covered a
large part of the town. At the
present day Lillooet is a little
garden city, to such an extent
have the residents availed themselves of their advantages. And
there is enough and to spare of
the magic fluid. The settling
tank is 16 feet long, 6 feet wide
and 6 feet high from which the
pipe runs, and keeps always a
steady 5 feet of water over the
pipe head. To screen off leaves,
etc., there are two quarter-inch
mesh heavy nets. Provision is
made for sluicing out the reservoir in the event of sand and
vegetable matter getting in.
In common with all, Mr. Mac-
P. G. E. RY. LINE CLEAR
TO CLINTON
The entire line of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway was cleared to Clinton on Saturday, and
the resumption of through traffic
was signalized by the operation
of a freight train immediately behind the clearing outfits. Freight
is again moving over the line,
and several car loads of potatoes
and hay were shipped from here
this week. Regular passenger
service has aiso been resumed.
Trains will be opetated twice a
week each way, on Tuesdays and
Fridays northbound, and Wednesdays and Saturdays southbound, for the next week, after
which a service will be furnished
every other day. A daily service
will be put in operation as soon
as the track is properly ballasted.
The opening of the line has already improved business conditions to a great extent in Lillooet.
The stores have received large
quantities of supplies and now
have full stocks on hand to meet
the demands of their customers.
The train is also bringing business men and pleasure-seekers to
town and the hotels are doing a
flourishing business.
The first car load of ore on the
P.G.E. will be hauled out shortly.
The shipment is from the Bridge
River district, is antimony, a
most valuable commodity used in
the manufacture of high explosives, and for which there is a
big demand at present in view of
the war.	
We beg to draw the attention
of the public to the advertisement
of The McMullen Hide and Fur
Co., of Vancouver, on page 4.
Mr. McMullen was in town this
week on a business trip and
bought a considerable quantity of
furs and hides. This company is
out for business and you can always be sure of a square deal and
the highest price when you send
your goods to them.

pleasant part of his work in this
connection, but a necessary one,
is the monthly collection of dues,

busy relating his experiences
while at the front. Private
Cuthbert was a reservist and was
called to the Old Country as soon
as war was declared, landing in
France in Sept., 1914, and has
been fighting almost continuously
ever since. He was "gassed" in
the big battle at Hill 60, about a
year ago, and was sent to England for a time. He soon recovered and went back to the scene
of hostilities, where he since seen
some terrible fighting. Private
Cuthbert was a member of the
Royal Scotch, 2nd Bat., 8th
Brigade, 3rd Div. He has done
his "bit" and has been honorably
discharged. He will leave in a
few days for his ranch at North

THE RETURNED SOLDIER.
If there is any man in
British Columbia who has a
strong claim on our heart and
on our pocket that man is
the returned soldier. He may
return without a wound, may
be physically and morally as
good and useful as when he
left and quite able to resume
his former occupation in civil
life, but even so, he risked
his life
When shot and shell
With flame of hell
Left thousands lying low.
He discharged his duty to
his King and country as a
brave man, and Wellington
did no more. We should see
to it that no man stands between him and any position
in the gift of the government
he is capable of filling.
There is another class, the
maimed, who are deserving
of still greater consideration.
They have not only discharged their duty as brave men,
but they have suffered loss
which no human consideration can be an equivalent.
The government has already
taken steps to meet the requirements of those disabled
soldiers, so as to lighten their
misfortune as much as possible. But the militia department, though no doubt
consisting of men of high intelligence and resourcefulness, claim no monopoly of
brain power, and we are sure
they would welcome any
practical suggestion bearing
on this subject, no matter
whence it came.
There is a third and last
class who are so maimed and
shattered that it is almost
impossible to find any employment at which they could be
used. These are certainly
objects of the greatest pity
and sympathy, and no doubt
there will be a very large
number of this class to be
provided for.
We noticed some time ago
in the New Westminster
Columbian a plan briefly outlined by Mr. D. D. Bourke
for dealing with this class.
Mr. Bourke's plan is that
there should be three homes
for them-one for the western province, one for the
central and one for the eastern. No matter how wealthy
a man's relatives might be,
Mr. Bourke considers that
those unfortunate human
wrecks would find more enjoyment in the association of
fellow soldiers, with similar
scenes to recall and similar
misfortunes to nurse, than
under the most comfortable
parental roof. He suggested
that as land was now very
cheap and money very scarce,
donations of property might
be taken for the establishment of such homes. The
government could hold these
lands in trust, or devise
means by which they could
be held in trust, till the real
estate market assumed a
more favorable aspect. These
homes should occupy the
choicest sites in Canada and
should be equipped with all
that is possible to lighten the
burden of the sad condition
of their inmates.
Now is the time to consider questions of this sort. The
war will be over sooner or
later. Other questions will
occupy men's minds, and we
are so apt to forget. The
day will come when the poor
crippled soldier will feel that
he has told his story once too
often. He may "shoulder
his crutch and show how
fields were won," but this
greedy world will be too
busy running after the dollar
to pay much attention to him.
Let us "strike the iron while
it is hot." When cold it is
harder to shape it according
to our desire.

Story  of  Lillooet's  Water
Supply.
Continued from Page 1.
ready to pay as the Water Commissioner is to serve.
Returning recently from Vietoria, Mr. MaeFarlane brought
with him an important document.
While in the Capital he visited
the Water Rights branch and
made arrangements for the issue
of a license for the equivalent of
the quantity of water, as measured, and was in use at the time of
the record in 1861. He now holds,
in his capacity of Water Commissioner, a license entitling the
town to a daily supply of 175,000
gallons. While, during the summer months, the town uses not
mora than one half of that quantity, we have the pleasure of
knowing that the remaining half
overflows from the tank back into the creek, to the benefit of
ranchers below. This will be allowed until it is found requisite
to take the whole supply to the
town consumers.
The present regulations issued
by the Commissioner for the use
of water require that all irrigation within the town be by means
of sprinklers and nozzles, thus
conserving the supply and allowing the above-mentioned overflow
to mingle with water recorded by
residents outside the town limits.
Herein lies an object lesson in intelligent conservation, for the
sprinkler and nozzle, while efficiently distributing all the water
needed to grow splendid crops
and beautify gardens, is an
enormous advantage in the elim
ination of waste. Doubtless those
receiving the advantages will
fully appreciate them so long as
they last, for it is possible that at
no very distant date the develop
ment of the town might be such
as to call for the maximum allowance.
The intelligent anticipation
which has caused the Water Board
of London, England, to provide
for supplying water to an estimated population of sixteen millions of people (including, of
course, Greater London) by the
year 1940, is the same kind of
foresight which has enabled the
Water Commissioner of Lillooet
town to bring back in his pocket
a license which, among other
things, gives the town till 1940
to utilize the full amount of 175,-
000 gallons per day.
Until then we use carefully
what we have. We conserve our
forests and watersheds, we conserve our water, we conserve at
the same time our health, and
with the aid of climatic conditions
unsurpassed, we sprinkle the
clear and cool fluid oyer our
gardens, and nature, as if in recognition of our d«sire to do our
part, brings into existence, as if
by magic, flowers of myriad hues;
fruitsof unexcelled beauty, flavor
and form; carpets of lush green
velvet, and every kind of plant
that is necessary to our sustenance. If you doubt it, look
around you. Lillooet is an Eden,
for while it has its Adams (and
its Eves) it has no serpents and
there is not an apple tree that
you may not sample. The most
perfect harmony prevails in the
conduct of its affairs (although
mild differences of viewpoint may
occasionally be detected) and all
are agreed that whether beer
goes or stays, whether 1940 seep
the continuance of the weird
and wonderful wobblings which
whisky works or not, 175,000
gallons of water per day will still
be available.

" /"^ AIN or no gain the cause before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was last
*^ year—they must produce abundantly in order to meet the demands that may
be made, and I believe this to be especially true in regard to live stock, the world's
supply of which must be particularly affected in this vast struggle."—HON.
MARTIN BURRELL, Minister of Agriculture.
THE    FOLLOWING    STATEMENTS   ARE    BASED    ON    REPORTS   CONTAINED   IN
"THE AGRICULTURAL WAR BOOK,  1916,"  PUBLISHED BY  THE
DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,  OTTAWA, ONT.
LIVE STOCK—The herds and flocks of Europe
have been greatly reduced. When the war is over
there will be a great demand for breeding stock.
Canadian farmers should keep this in mind.
MEATS—In 1915 Great Britain imported 664,508
tons of beef, mutton and lamb, of which 364,245
tons came from without the Empire. Out of
430,420 tons of beef only 104,967 tons came from
within the Empire.
The demands of the Allies for frozen beef,
canned beef, bacon and hams will increase rather
than diminish. Orders are coming to Canada.
The decreasing tonnage space available will give
Canada an advantage if we have the supplies.
DAI RYING—Home consumption of milk, butter
and cheese has increased of late years. The war
demands for cheese have been unlimited. The
Canadian cheese exports from Montreal in 1915
were nearly $6,500,000 over 1914, Prices at
Montreal—Cheese: January 1915, 15}^ to 17
cents; January 1916, 18^i to 18K cents.
Butter: January 1915, 24 to 2&% cents;
January 1916, 32 to 33 cents.
EGGS—Canada produced $30,000,000 worth of
eggs in 1915 and helped out Great Britain in the
shortage. Shippers as well as producers have a
duty and an opportunity in holding a place in
that market.

ROYAL

MAKES PERFECT BREAD
m THE PROSPECTOR
TO MAKE FIRST-CLASS BUTTER.
Begin by having the milking
done in a cleanly way and in a
clean stable. Keep the separator
in condition by washing and
scalding thoroughly after each
using. Cool the cream immediately to 50 degrees or lower, in
a tub of ice water, and keep cool
and sweet until the churning is
gathered. Keep the cream covered securely, but not air-tight.
Let the temperature rise to 60
degrees or thereabouts, and add
a good starter. There is nothing
better for this purpose than well
flavored butter milk. Stir frequently until the cream is thick,
sour and has a glossy appearance,
when it is ready for the churn.
Scald the churn and rinse with
cold water before putting in the
cream. The temperature should
riot be above 58 degrees in summer and 62 in winter, and the
butter should "come" in from 20
minutes to half an hour. Stop
churning when the butter is in
granules about the size of small
wheat, draw off the butter-milk,
and rinse with cold water until
no trace of milk remains. Care
in this matter has much to do
with the keeping qualities of the
butter.
Remove the butter (which
should still be in grains) to a
vessel in which it can be weighed—I use a shallow candy pail-
weigh, turn out on the butter
worker, and apply salt, from one
to one and one-half ounces to a
pound of butter. You will have
to regulate the amount to suit the
taste of your customers. Much
of mine is sold unsalted. Work
very gently, being careful not to
spoil the texture of the butter by
unnecessary pressure. Let stand
half an hour, work again, and
print or pack. In printing,make
the prints full weight, perfectly
shaped and wrap neatly with a
good quality of parchment, bearing your name and address, or
farm name. Keep in a cool place
until wanted for marketing, then
place in a clean box or basket,
having a clean white cloth around
and over the butter, and paper
over that and under the box lid.
Never let cream or butter stand
where there is an odor of any
kind.
When you go to market be sure
your butter is good, and say so.
Have it looking neat and clean,
yourself (or salesman) ditto, and
you'll have no trouble making
good sales.
No, I didn't forget the coloring. The above describes my
way of making butter and 1
never use butter coloring. —Mrs.
Alex. Agilary, in Farm and Dairy.
'A PLEASANT VISIT."
..»-»..«..+.. »)-»,»~
We have received a letter, signed by two well-known resident*
of thfc 17-Mile House, protesting
against an article, headed, "A
Pleasant Visit," which appeared
in the Prospector of April 7, and
calling on the writer of the said
article to apologize. We think
the publication of this letter will
only add more fuel to the fire and
hope the parties concerned will
settle the matter among themselves. The writer assures us
that "he regrets exceedingly that
offence has been taken to- what
he considered was only a joke,
and he begs to apologize for any
unintentional annoyance it may
have caused anyone."

Federal, state and city authorities of New York are all taking
precautions to guard points that
might be attacked by German
sympathizers in the event of the
outbreak ef hostilities. The usual
stream of visitors to the Brooklyn navy yard has been barred;
sightseers found marines en
guard at the gates.
Since the beginning of the war
2000 dailies, weeklies and magazines have passed out of existence in Germany. This is due
to the high prices of paper and
ink. and to the shortage of advertisements. Many others will now
be forced to cease publication, as
the German Paper Manufacturers
Trust, which controls the paper
market, has resolved to increase
the price of paper 40 per cent.
