LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
!    T. Prest  hauled  a  lot of saw mill ma
chinery from   Spence's- Bridge last week
[for F. P. Cook's mill on One-Mile.
S. St. Onge, formerly of Rossland, but
recently-from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, arrived on Wednesday's stage from
Hedley.. He is a successful mining man
and came to Princeton for the purpose of
engaging in business along that line.
The reputation of this section had long
ago persuaded him that opportunities, for
investment here were excellent and now
that the railway is building he determined to be .early on the ground and
avoid the approaching rush of travel.
C. Chrisfield has started his bakery- in
the new building ou Harold avenue.
J. Swansborough has almost recovered
from his recent illness.
Revely's stage line required two coaches
to handle the traffic on Wednesday.
Gus Hewat wae laid off with twenty
other miners at the Nickel Plate last
Monday and returned to Princeton.
Shortage of water is the cause.
The earthquake last week is said to
have started a smoke out of an extinct
volcano south of Princeton. It may have
been only hot air from the smelter down
below.
Work on the brewery is progressing
rapidly.

^Concluded from lastvweek.]
Editor Star—Sir : As much- thought
must be given to a school of .mines as
to that of any other. Above all it must
be kept, out of politics. A politician
would not makea success of a school of
mines. All of us who have arrived at
the age of maturity realize how much we
learned at school that .was useless ; how
nmcluthat was. mere theory ; how little
that could be applied to the practical side
of things and which became obsolete by
the time we desired to use what we had
learned.
Knowledge acquired in the schools of
today must foe stripped of much useless
verbiage before they can bring out the
best that is in a boy and this applies particularly to mining affairs." In this ocoiu
pation, as of all others, itihe main thing is
to teach a young man tg>,think and observe for himself, not for. somebody else
or as some one wants,s.Jiim to think—to
be able to draw a correct conclusion from
a cold fact as he finds it. A boy must
have a love and fitness for his-calling.
It is useless to attempt"to make a miner
out df^d'boy who wants to be a minister.
No school ever did this. You may drive
a boy to college but you cannot make
him think.
Our real education begins after we
leave school and the best men never graduate. We learn- that there is a whole
lot that is-not in the hooks. A mining
school ■ must eliminate theory and be
practical to be of any use. There is one
school of mines being equipped with
every,known process for the extraction
of values and in it ores will be actually;
treated and paid for. Most of the machinery is supplied by the various manufacturing companies as an advertisement.
When a young man leaves this school he.
will know how to do something^ because
he will see things done while he is reading about them—he will learn to apply
his knowledge as he acquires it.
In addition to these advantages the
railroads of Colorado each year take the
students to every mining camp in the
state free of charge, that they may see
all the great mines and mills in actual
operation on an extensive scale. In this
way all factors combine to make it the
best school in the world from a practical
standpoint.
The competitive railroad system now
being   built   will,   with   other   outside
forces, inaugurate a new era in mining
affairs for British Colnmbia. It will
tend to lift this whole section out of the
fossilized rut that the- Canaaian Pacific
railroad has kept it in. Resurrection
day is not far off and it now seems possible that the miraculous influences now at
work may extend, not only to that road,
but to all thedead spirits of the.past that
have fostered, its sluggish and obstructive
existence and, with the new dawn, let us
have a school of mines.
Yours truly,
J. F. LEI.AND.
TOWN BREVITIES.
Fire wardens for Princeton have been \
elected in accordance with the terms of /
;the law, and are as follows : J. R. Camp- S
bell, C. Willerson and C. O. French.
A meeting of the board of trade will
be held next Thursday evening to consider, with' other important matters, the
necessity for better fire protection and
to that end- the formation of a fire brigade Citizens generally are invited to
attend and a full attendance of members
is requested.
Tuesday night the thermometer fell to )
8 degrees below zero, but next day it was \
delightfully balmy with a slight descent j
of the "beautiful."
The Confederation Life Association has
the thanks of many persons here who
have received one of the handsome and
handy calendars sent them.
;,)Finlay Fraser, one of Hedley's pro- \
gressive and esteemed citizens, is en- j
gaged on the new brewery and will be a j
resident here for several months.
Ryder & McDermott are down about
25 feet on the big coal shaft they are
"sinking for W. C. McDougall near town
and have struck the sandstone overlying
the coal.. 'jjjipi
■J. Gladden, of Hedley, came in on
Wednesday's stage on a combined business and social visit. He received a
Marconigram from C. E. Oliver, his
partner, now on a visit to the Old Country. It is the- first to be received in the
Similkameen ,and contained those old
and ever full of meaning words : "Make
hay while the sun shines." Lest any of
his friends should feel anxious the Star
canJsay that Mr. Gladden is ' 'doing nicely,
thank you."
Pete Marquette and Tink French drove
in from Nicola on Thursday.
C. Stoess, P.L.S., came up from Keremeos last Saturday where he has been
surveying acreage property for fruit
growing. He. states that he saw a tree
last fall which bore 65 bushels of fine
apples, and that it was not phenomenal
for that locality. Mr. Stoess returned to
Keremeos on Thursday. He much prefers Princeton with its cloak of fleecy
white to a certain uncanniness of dull
atmosphere and dusty roads at Keremeos.
Eventually he will locate at Princeton
and make it his permanent address.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Boards of trade throughout the
province are making effort with the
beginning of the year to advertise
the natural resources of .their particular district on a scale hitherto
not excelled by them. The Nelson
board of trade has recently gone
into the matter thoroughly and it
has transpired that the tourist associations have done a great service in
conjunction with the various'boards
in advertising the country* A big
influx of. miners and settlers are
expected in the; province this year
and every locality will need to be
alive to get its share. The Princeton board of trade can do a great
service by advertising the advantages of this locality in ever5r possible way. At its next meeting the
board will consider a letter from
the Vancouver tourist association
asking for information of this section. ' Every member ot the board
should be present to assist in the
matter o@idvertising this section. .
The Manitoba Free Press, with
its accustomed enterprise and forethought has sent to all its patrons
a New. Year memento consisting of
a bit of steel, a flint and a piece of
'punk or lightwood. Before matches
were invented these were the primi-
t.ve implements used in making
.fires. They recall to mind an obsolete practice and the booklet accompanying adds a tinge of romance
gathered from a Cree legend as to
the origin of fire. The Free Press
is pumished in Winnipeg, a city cf
nearly 100,00,0 souls, which last
year had over ten and a half million dollars worth of buildings
added to it, not the least'Jimposing
business structure being the fine
new home of the Free Press. This
newspaper is without a peer in the
west and is One of the best conducted in Canada.
A copy of " Mother Earth's
Treasure Vaults," from the well
known pen of Percy Godenrath,
and is a welcome addition to the
.Star's bureau of mineral information. The work is largely historical, interspersed with reminiscences
and biographical sketcnfes of jhq--
neers and their day. Some interesting information of the horticul-
the province is also given. There
is nothing to be desired in the space
or beyond what the bcfi3k was designed to be by the author. But,
we could wish Mr. Godenrath, with
his wealth of resource and versatile
talent as writer, would collate his
wide knowledge of this province
into a work much less ephemeral
than the one under review. British Columbia has reached that stage
where a history, political, social and
descriptive is an urgent need. A
standard work of this kind with
maps would have ready demand
among financiers,-- investors and
settlers and could be kept up-to-
date by yearly editions. Pictorially
and typographically-r^^" Mother
^firth's Treasure Vaults" is perfect and for the small price, 25
cents, ought to run into several editions.   • "&£%
Replying to the toast of "The
Press" Senator Davis of Illinois
made some appreciative remarks
which are worthy of record and
which will find responsive echo
among intelligent readers the world
over. He said : "During the year
every local newspaper gives from
500 to 5000 free lines for the benefit of the community in which it is
located. No other agency can do
yais. The editor, in proportion to
his means, does more for his own
town 'than any other man. He
ought to be supported ; not because
you are friendly with him or admire his writing, but because a local
paper is the best investment a community can make. It may not be
ca^wded with great thought, but
financially it is of more benefit than
both preacher and teacher. Today
editors do more for less pay than
any other class of men on earth.
Patronize your home paper, not as
a charity, but as an investment."
The Daily News of Nelson issued a 20-page;; mining number on
New Year's day which contains
much valuable information about
the mining industry. The Similkameen comes in for extended notice
of its great mineral deposits and
the whole province is treated in the
same exhaustive manner. The
News is one of the most progressive
newspapers in the interior.
The holiday number of the Phoenix Pioneer is always a welcome
visitor on every editor's desk. It
is an edition de luxe with its fine
paper and exquisite letterpress.
As a comprehensive publication of
Boundary mining it could not well
be surpassed. Its handy form and
artistic makeup create a favorable
impression the moment it is taken
in hand.

Tuck French arrived in from Nicola
last Saturday and intends making a fortune here.
Dr. Whillans, of Hedley, visited Princeton last Sunday.
Charlie Willerson is making an addition to his house, which fact, in itself,
is not unusual these growing times, but,
taken in conjunction with that other fact
that he was seen pushing a dandy baby
carriage toward his bachelor home, then
suspicion is aroused. Is he thinking of
embarking on that sea, ah, he' knows
not whither ? But marriage is contagious
they say and the esteemed Mr. Willerson
may have been infected from seeing a
popular young couple now on the shore
preparing for a lifelong voyage across the
deep, deep sea of wedded happiness. The
Star beckons them all to come and may
the voyage be calm and happy all the
way.
Jim and Claude Snowden have got a
contract for cutting a half million feet of
logs for the A. E. Howse Co. and are now
busy laying the monarchs of the forest
at their feet.
Perley Russell was down from Granite

The diamond drill working for the

"I thought," said her mother, "that I
heard you and Mr. Rockingham quarrelling down in the parlor last night."
"Ye-es ; but we made up before he went
away" "What was the matter?" "He
said when he was holding my hand it was
like a little bird fluttering in a cage, and
I insisted that it was like a little mouse
in a trap. We just had an awful time for
a while."
Teacher—Can you tell me the difference between "like" and "love?" Small
Boy—Yes ma'am. I like my father and
mother, but I love pie.
A teacher wished to bring home the
lesson of the fate that befell idle people.
He asked the class who were the people
who got all they could and did nothing
in return. There was silence, but at last
a little girl, mindful of her home, said :
"Please, sir, it's babies !"
Magistrate—What have you to say to
the charge of assault ? Defendant—Well
sir, he called me an ass. Magistrate—
Ah ! And, naturally, you kicked!
"How magnificently your daughter
sweeps into a room !" "Yes. If she
could sweep out a room that well, she'd
be some use to her mother."
"Your wife tells me that you had nothing to do with the building of your
new house. She and the architect, she
says, are entitled to all the credit." "Yes,
all I did was to pay for the thing,"
