yesterday from Tulameen.

land and real estate agent, is in town on
a business visit and is assiduously attending to it. In a short while be sold
eleven lots located somewhere in Washington. It is said he could sell lots in
the moon if they were on the market, or
to old Nebuchadnezzar if he could only
hear his sweet, persuasive language. Of
course Neb is no longer in the flesh and
Mr. Howard is too busy with a live
immigration scheme to bother with
a mummified Babylonian. As a result of
Mr. Howard's visit a new town or city is
likely to spring up on the mountains,
where the snowdrops bloom all the year
around. However, if Mr. Howard brings
capital and settlere into the country, that
is business, and probably more than the
knocker element conld do. There is
land in this country that has been empty
since Noah's flood and it is time there
were taxpaying settlers on it.
D. M. Kydd, formerly of the Bank of
Commerce here, bnt now of the New
Westminster branch, is spending his holidays on tour of the Nicola and Princetou
districts, going out via Hope Pass. Mr.
Kydd uotes the great improvements here
and still, as ever, has a hankering for the
old town. Many former acquaintances
gave him the right hand of welcome.

Avery & Avery report the sale of Lot

Work was begun on the Princeton-
Chilliwack Coal Co's property across the
Tulameen river, about 300 yards from
Bridge street, last Monday morning. It
is the aim of the company to produce
coal for the winter trade and will sink a
4^x7 foot shaft to tap the coal in the
upper vein. The coal is of the usual
excellent quality, it having been tested
from the old (unnel near the bridge.
The shaft sinking will be done under
supervision of Biliy Knight, which is a
guarantee of its being well and correctly
Hugh Cowan is still confined to his
room with kidney complaint and under
the careful attention of Nurse Bartoo is
making a gallant struggle for recovery.
His many friends would be glad to see
him about town again.
In reply to the hundred and one questions being asked about the unfinished
condition of the sidewalks it may be
stated that the sole delay is for want of
lumber to complete them with.

R. S. Smith, of the Bank of Montreal,
New Westminster, is making a holiday
trip through this section and is enjoying
the outing immensely. He speaks with
enthusiasm of New Westminster and sees
a great future for it. In company with
K. C. Brown and Mr. Kydd he was shown
the sights and was delighted with the
natural beauties of the town.
Sam Spencer sent some, fine samples of
zinc and silver-lead ore to the Nelson
Fair yesterday.
John George left last week for Winnipeg, where he will confer with ""<_____.
regarding the plant to be installed for
cement works. It is proposed to purchase the very best and latest designed
machinery. The capacity of the plant

barrels as at first contemplated. Mr.
George is not a visionary in any sense of
the term. The opportunity discovered
him and he systematically, step by step,
has laid the foundation of a large industry. Opening up the deposits in readiness for actual manufacturing will begin
at once. An office building is being prepared preliminary to the employment off
a large force of skilled and ordinary
labor. The work will not be allowed to
lag from start to finish.
A. Murchie, of Westbank, Okanagan
lake, is in town on a bnsiness visit and
is also improving his house for the .pur,*
pose of making it suitable to rentu.. He
still has a fondness for Princeton and
will, no doubt, make good with his town
property. At present Mr. Murchie has
some 25 acres of a fruit ranch near West}-
bank which engages most of time and he
will in all likelihood settle down and
make his home there, relinquishing photography for the more lucrative apple,
plum and 'punkin.' He reports great
development and progress'"in the Okaua'-

to M. J. G. Lock of London, Eng , for
the respectable sum «f ,-,#35,000. The
Angus Lamont ranch was also sold to
Mr. Lock for #10,000.
Rumor has it that Jim Hill has an eye
on this district and intends reaching the
Pacific coast via the Okanagan and Similkameen rivers. [That rumor still holds
good and Jim still has his eye on this

of aj town.
With all the improvements now
in progress Princeton will not only
be a  'city beautiful'  but useful as
well.    The vast improvement made
in the appearance and utility of the
streets by grading with gravel and
sidewalks is noted by strangers and
citizens.   Such improvements, combined with  the  natural  beauty of
locationi and  scenic  surroundings,
immeasufably enhance the value-of
the town as a place in which to re-
■side.    A clean, healthy town, with
the  ornamentation  of shade  trees
and  hedges  along  streets begets a
worthy civic pride  in citizens and
evokes a high tone  of appreciation
from  visitors.     Every citizen can
do something to beautify the town,
to which he may  add his faith and
belief in  its future  and  talk it to
whining pessimists  until they shall
•catch his spirit and become boosters
instead  of remaining  insignificant
knockers.    Whatever tends to centralize    Princeton,   whether  it  be
-church, hospital or industry, shou'd
have general  and cooperative support.    All  pull  together,   in   that
way  making  the  work  light and
-agreeable.     The  laggards  in any
movement for  the  benefit  of  the
community are   mistaken   if   they
__ope to profit on  the efforts of tbe
public    spirited    and    progressive
—the  eternal  and unfailing law of
'Compensation  disannuls such hope.
As a rule  they  dwindle away into
infinitesimal  insignificance and are
never  heard  from.    Unity  of aim
and effort will bring certain reward
an prosperity  and advancement, in
well being and comfort.
It has been discovered that cheese
is a brain builder and as it contains
phosphates is an excellent food for
promoting bone construction in
growing children. There would
be danger in the first instance of
some foolish editors ot the toper
breed, who have neither decency
nor honor, making a complete diet
of this estimable food, thus acquiring such an amount of brains as to
swell their heads to tbe bursting
point. It is hoped they will eat
cheese enough to make them at
least gentlemanly, truthful and intelligent.

The system of Government Annuities which has  been established
by the parliament of Canada is one
- of the best  encouragements for the
young  to  become  thrifty and economical that has yet been devised.
Its  effect is to put every man, woman and  child in absolutely independent circumstances in old age,
when the earning power of the person has ceased.   By beginning early
in life to pay  into the Government
a small sum an annuity may be
procured which will provide against
want, to which all are  more or less
liable.    The money may be paid in
at any money  order office ; it can-
t,?.not be withdrawn or seized for debt,
- or used in any other way, and the
Government pays  all cost of man-
Canada imported coal in 1908 to
the value of $2,850,000, constituting an enormous drain on our
wealth. And here in the Princeton district are hundreds of millions of tons of excellent coal and
not much doin'.    What's wrong.
If Jim Hill is not careful an  airship  line  will   be  in operation between here and the  coast before he
even  gets  the V.,V. & E. located.
It is all very nice  for  Uncle James
to talk vacuous  generalities  about
the trials and difficulties of railroad
building.    What   the people of the
Jimhilkameen valley want is direct
railway connection   with the coast.
And   they   want   it   quick,   right
away.    Building  a railroad with a
huudred  daygoes and a few mules
is slow and would require us all to
be Methusalehs to see the finish.
The  credit  system,  so  much in
vogue, is an incentive to dishonesty
among a  large class of people who
have a natural  dislike   for   payiDg
their bills.    If credit were abolished
altogether nine-tenths of the litigation and  worry  would be avoided.
With  everyone  working on a cash
basis, no bills to render, accounts to
settle,   collectors  to  employ,   duns
to make or books to keep, life would
then be  'worth living.'    The nearest approach to this ideal condition
is for all in favor of it to adopt the
cash system and pay  their bills at

The Dominion government is making
an  effort to induce farmers to go more
•extensively into the sheep industry.   The
adaptability   ot   the grazing conditions
and climate in and around Princeton require only to be tried to prove successful
for sheep raising.     The dry climate is
nature's   provision  for the health   and
.thrift of the  lambs, and   the   nutrient
qualities of the   grass will   conduce to
flesh forming and fine quality of mutton.   In the Nelson district farmers are
introducing goats for their food and milk
qualities and also for clearing ground of
-shrubs and brush.
