COPPER LIKE STEEL
Lost Art of   Tempering Red
Metal Rediscovered by
Halifax Man.
Hade Razor with Keenest   Cutting
Qualities and Blocks Harder
Than Iron.
It is again reported that the art of tem
pering copper, known to the ancients of
bygone ages and since lost, has .been rediscovered. If it turns out to be a fact
the price and demand of copper will soar
to great heights. However, the reserve
of the red metal in Princeton district
will meet any extraordinary demand that
could possibly be made. It will be the
aim of the Star to furnish the latest developments in connection with copper
tempering with a view to inducing the
inventor to establish works in Princeton
district where copper may be said to literally grow. Following is the dispatch
going the rounds regarding the discovery:
" Halifax. N.S., March 26—A Halifax
founder is said to have discovered the
lost art of tempering copper and is about
to promote a company to make further
experiments along this line. He claims
he has the correct process. He has hardened a piece of copper and made a razor
with an edge keener .than the best steel
would take. Blocks of copper have been
tempered that are harder to file than
iron. Not only has Mr. Douglas, the inventor, been successful in tempering cok-;
per, but he has also made a casting of
copper and lead that will stand many
times the pressure that the ordinary roller
bearing castings will stand."

Bill:"   these are the reasons I heard/for
the general sympathy with Miner.
Bill Miner is, or was, certainly at the
nead ot his profession; above tbe burglars
and highwaymen, and far above the
average run of millionaires and politicians. I suppose there are some millionaires who really earned their money by
honest, useful work, but most of them
got their money without earning it any
mpre than Bill did his. They are cleverer  theives  than   Bill,  because they  do
L
their stealing under forms of law, but
they have not his courage.
I once read in a Book: "Rob not the
poor because he is poor; for God shall
spoil the soul of those that spoil them."
The author of this advice was a milhn-
aire himself, Out his ideas are about
three thousand years behind the times
Robbing the poor, by stockjobbing, patent menicines or political graft is the
easiest, quickest and surest way of getting rich, and you can always square
things with the pnblic by endowing
some colleges, hospitals or libraries. I
would rather be Bill Miner, and buy
candy for the girls.
Still, I think Bill Miner did wrong,
because he lived without working. This
is contrary not only to the Bible ('Six
days shalt thou labor' and 'He that will
not work, neither let him eat') but also
to the law of nature, which gives no one
a living except in return for work done.
I cannot see that any idler has a right to
live.
. Also, his method is rash and unscientific. If he had gone to Parliament (he
would have represented us more honestly and more ably than some M.P.'s I
have known) and looted the railway and
express companies by process of law, he
would have been recognized as a great
statesman, a benefactor to his country.
Instead, he is a fugitive from the law,
which is arranged to catch small rogues
and let big ones go.
Socialist.
SAW MANY LANDS.
A. E. Howse arrived on last week's
stage from Nicola and expects to return
tomorrow. It is a year iince he was here
in which time he observes marked changes and improvements. Of course he has
unbounded faith in Princeton and contiguous country, his many investments
affording indisputable proof of that.
It is not unlikely that he will reside here
permanently, so inviting is the outlook
from business, scenic, social and climatic
standpoints, in any case he would be a
welcome addition to the progressive element of the community in shaping the
destiny of this section and in laying the
foundation of the town on a sure and safe
basis. Nearly a year's travel in many
lands has convinced Mr. Howse that the
west is the country for investment and
home making. In the older, crowded
countries opportunity is lacking, while
here it. waits at every man's door. In
his reminiscences of travel there is much
to edify and amuse and with the completion of his proposed world-encircling tour
it is hoped his observations and recollections may take permanency in the
form of a book. Of all the peoples he
met'he considers the British much superior and Englishwomen superlative.
Live well and die happy—the A. F.
Howse Co. keeps everything for life sustenance—in the vegetable line try their
potatoes and carrofs. *
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Two Serious Accidents, One
Caused by Careless Use
of Powder.
People Passing to and fro and Cur
rent Events of the Day Here
and There.
C. Schisler had a runaway accident
last week while driving down the hill
leading from his place. None of the
family occupants were seriously injured
although all were rudely shaken.
The Ladies' Aid will meet at the manse
on Thursday at 3 p.m.
Dr., Mrs. Whillans and Mr. Hincks of
Hedley, were in town Sunday.
No sign of street or sidewalk improvements and our taxes still go to 'help out'
some more favored part of the country.
The V.F.M. Co., alone, pay some #400 in
taxes annually and would, no doubt, be
glad to work a portion of it out in sidewalks and street grading.
Board of Trade meeting next Monday
night at 8 o'clock, p.m., in the court
house.   A full attendance requested.
Wtn. Allison's boy has made excellent recovery from a fractured thigh reduced by Dr. Schon several weeks ago.
E. F. Vpigt has uncovered some very
fine looking ore on Copper Mountain
samples of which will be on exhibition
at the A.-Y.-P.
Gus Johnson had the misfortune to dislocate his shoulder oh Sunday which was
quickly attended to and the patient is
now doing well.
HOPE WAGON ROAD.
Dv^fartu
Govefirment Pledged to Construct and
Will Build Portion This Year.
Editor Star—Sir: You can see in
the newspapers that I have put up a good
fight for the Hope-Similkameen wagon
road, which we are sure to get. The
government has promised to make a survey early this spring and the road will
be built as far as Summit camp this season and next year the remainder of the
road will be buiit to Otter Flat.
As you are aware it is 24 miles from
Hope to Summit camp, aud 30 miles from
there to Otter Flat, where junction is
made with a good wagon road leading to
Nicola via Aspen Grove and to Princeton,
18 miles distant. The total distance from
Hope to Princeton by this route is thus
72 miles. This distance is a trifle more
than that of the old Hope-Princeton trail
via Hope summit, which was measured
by Jas. Hyslop, C.E., and found to be just
71 y% miles.   It was supposed to be only
65 miles in length until measured.
I had a large petition signed  by the
people of Chilliwack and Vancouver.
The city council and mayor and the municipal council and reeve of Chilliwack
signed it, and the council of the city of
New Westminster and mayor signed it.
The city council and' mayor of Vancouver endorsed the petition, so also the
board ot trade and the tourist association.
All were strongly in favor of the road
being built from Hope to Otter Flat on
the Tulameen river. A delegation waited
on the government in Victoria and a promise made that we would get the road
built.
So, you will see, Mr. Editor, I have
been working hard for our good country,
the very best part of all British Columbia. I have not got any stronger since
leaving Princeton ; still very weak. My
kindest wishes I send to all my old*
friends in the Similkameen. Hope to be
back there early in May.
Yours truly,
Robert Stevenson.
Vancouver, March 25, 1909.
BLOWN DP BY BLAST.
Last Wednesday an Austrian who does
the explosive work on railway construction in town, was caught with a premature blast and seriously injured. It is
a miracle he was not instantly killed, for
he is a mass of contusions and wounds.
Two teeth aud some jawbone were carried away and the face and eyes filled
with rock, earth and gravel. Dr. Schon
gave the unfortunate man emergent medical attention and then sent him to Hedley hospital, where Dr. Whillans, railway
physician, will have him in care. As
with nearly all similar accidents carelessness.is at the bottom. The young man,
who is popular among his comrades, has
not had much experience with powder
and the result is a serious accident that
must confine him for some considerable
time.
GBANITE CBEEK CRICKLETS.
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
Onr courteous and esteemed fellow
citizen who attends the post office returned last week from Princeton wearing
a very broad smile and is now getting a
new dress suit made. We hope some
Princeton lady will soon take up her
residence in Granite. As there are quite
a few bachelors in Granite, Princeton
ladies had better get busy, as I see the
Salvation Army is importing marriageable lassies.
Frank Mansfield paid us a visit on
Tuesday, also Vic Ryder. From hints
dropped by Mr. Ryder he intends to soon
bring one more to add . to the population
of Princeton.
Welldo has begun to put on her spring
clothes and everything is turning green,
even the soup springs are that color now
since one of our citizens washed his feet
in them on a warm day last week.

LAYMEN'S   MISSIONARY
MOVEMENT.
The Star is in receipt of notice
that a National  Missionary Congress will be held in Toronto under
the aegis of the Laymen's Missionary   Movement.    Accompanying it
is copy for publication but as the
Star has opinions of its own  it respectfully declines the ready made
article   or   editorial.       That   the
church, by which is meant the vast
organizations     or    denominations
found in all Christendom, is not doing all the work Christ instructed
his disciples  to  do is evidenced by
the results.    Go into the churches
of a Sunday and observe the class
of people  who    attend.     Not  the
poor, humble, coarse clad, but the
smug, fine clothed, Pharisaic predominate; few, if any conversions;
the sermon of the sort that does not
offeud or cause the ear to tingle and
often does uot uplift ; highly trained
choirs with good  voice and volume
but lacking spiritual tone, the whole
service one of dead routine.    No
wonder  there  is  a Laymen's Missionary   Movement   to   reach  the
undertow  of humanity—the  great
unbelieving,    Bible   scoffing  mass
in every  civilized  country  as well
as the heathen  in  other lands.    It
seems  that   gospel  spreading  and
Bible teaching is now to be entrusted largely  to  laymen  rather than
the college   trained   with  two or
three capitals to their names.    Uu-1
lettered men, such as Moody, Jerry
McAuley, and Gipsy Smith are the
most successful fishers of men, indeed the church net would be about
empty were it not for these common
lay evangelists   whose  awakening
and converting powers are  beyond
question.     These  men   teach  the
Bible in its entirety.    With them it
is all or nothing, and properly and
logically so.    They  do  not mince
matters, but fire  broadsides of hot
truth at  the  people, knowing that
they are not dependent on them for
a salary and have no fixed abode.
Salaries are the bane of the church
today, creating acrid discussion, dissension, harsh criticism and bitterness, besides, the -gospel 'is without
money and without price,' therefore I
the labors of all  those engaged in
its spread are  priceless and unpur-
chasable.    That minister is fettered
and handicapped  who draws a salary from the people whom he serves.
He may have a highly respectable,
dignified, formal congregation but
he will have few converts, if any,
and conversion should be the end
and aim of preaching.   The Star
welcomes the Laymen's Missionary
Movement,  believing it to be more)
in line   with scripture in method, <
its spirit born  workers  giving evi-1
dence of power that no amount of
professional  college    training   can
equal.   Tbe church   has a lot of
dead men  and women on its roll.
Possibly  the Laymen's Movement
will restore them to life and usefulness.

TOWN AND DISTRICT.
J. E. McCauley is hard at work on the
Reco. Better accommodation for men
has been provided and a very hopeful
outlook pervades the Reco. It will take
about 30 feet to tap the lead and this will
require strenuous labor to accomplish
during life of bond. That a mine is in
the making there.no one has any doubt
and Mac is certainly deserving of the
best that's going in tbe mineral line.
Fort Langley, where liquor has been
sold ever since the Hudson Bay Company built a fort there not much less than
a hundred years ago, has 'gone dry.'Over
600 residents petitioned the license commissioners there not to renew the two
old licenses or grant any new ones. The
commissioners have accordingly given
notice that no liquor must be sold in
Langley after June 30.

DRY FARMING.
Evaporation:  which   Concerns Irrigator as well as Dry Farmer.
The subject of evaporation is of interest to the irrigator as well as the dry
farmer and it will pay both to give it
consideration.
Professor King has showu by repeated"
. experiments that during hot weather,
from ground left in its natural state,water
will evaporate from the soil at the rate of
over a quart to the square foot per day;
in fact often nearly three pints. This
shows why it is imperative for the dry
faimer to cultivate his ground immediately after a rain to check this enormous
evaporation, it also shows the absolute
necessity for the irrigator to cultivate as
soon after irrigating as the soil will permit. Toward the end of June we usually
get rain. As soon as the rain stops loss
by evaporation begins ; in 24 hours 108,-
000 gallons have gone, in ten days
1,080,000 gallons -have left the soil from
ten acres of ground. Is it not better to
cultivate immediately after the rain and
save the water that is already in the
ground ?
Of course with  the dry farmer it is a
matter of much  more  vital importance,

SIZE:   Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.

it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copoer mines.

of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each

for if he lets 1,000,000 gallons of water
waste from ten acres he has no means at
hand to replenish it; it is gone entirely
and before more rain: comes the soil is
apt to be suffering for want of moisture.
As long as there 'is moisture  on the
it evaporates unless checked by a soil
mulch; and-   while   cultivation   at  any
^ime  will  form a ■ soil mulch and check
Evaporation, the most perfect soil  mulch
can only be made directly after rain or
irrigation, before the soil   has  become
dried.   Every day that  ground is  left
without cultivation after rain, water has
left it at the rate of over 10,000 gallons
per   acre   that the dry farmer has   no
means of replacing.
Further, it is most convindingly arg
tied that products from  ground treated
in this way are superior in quality and
flavor to those where such over-irrigation
has been done as is necessary where such
cultivation as advised is not carried out,
while the productivity of the ground is
not only increased but conserved for the
products of value, not wasted on weed
growth.
