MONEY IN HEN FRUIT
Wise Man in East Tells how
125 per cent. Profit
is Made.
If Henpecked Husbands, or Bachelors,
would Prospect Hens.Mignt Find
Gold Mine.
There is so much room for expansion
in the egg producing industry in this
district, and trfJs being a slack time for
mining news, the following will prove ot
interest and perchance profit to farmers
and all who consume eggs. It is estimated that only one half the eggs consumed here are produced in this section,
the other halt being imported as ca.e
" eggs. With fresh eggs selling at 50 cents
per dozen for eight month-, in the year,
the balance at 40 cents, and good locations for 'chicken ranching' near town,
it would seem that Princeton offers fine
inducements for anyone wishing to engage in this profitable business. Let us
see what A. SjJZiminerman, of Harris-
burg, Pa, has to say about hens and
eggs:
" From figures compiled in a year's
record of 14 hens, housed iih'a coop gx
15 feet, Mr. Zimmerman, of 15, North
Eighteenth street, says the Monitor, declares there is 125 per cent, profit in
selling the eggs laid by this flock, even
at the average price of 30 cents a dozen
Zimmerman has no patent appliance
fir 'making hens lay ' He maintains
simply that the fowls will produce eggs
as well when kept in close quarters in
the city, if they have proper sttenUqn,
arid feed. Here are some of the results
o his year's observations offered as proof
of the statement that his 14 hens have
been ' making good :'
In the year the hens lai 1 1456 eggs, an
average of 28 eggs a week for the year,
or four each day f:om the flock. At the
price of 30 'Cents a dozen, this output
netted approximately $36 40.
And for this profit Mr. Zimmerman's
computation shows that he spent for feed
only $16.12. 'Those hens weie notwalk-
ing skeleton?, either,' explained Zimmer-

winter at Gibson's lake and is having
good luck trapping, catching seven lynx
during the cold snap. He froze his nose
but dotsn't mind a little mishaplike that
so long as the present price of lynx' holds
up.
C. Scjjisler is hauling hay from the
Tilton ranch to Jerry Frame's and was
sadiy missed at the dance Friday night.
Business before pleasure, of course, but
it is hoped Jerry won't eat another overload of bannocks before the next dance
and keep Mr. Schisler away again.
Walter Martin is busy hauling hay
fiom -Al Johnson's place on the creek.
■ Since J. C. Budd had his eyes treated
last fall in Spokane he is able to see tin
wigglers in the lake on his ranch and
fishing for wigglers has become quite a
:pastime with Jack.
Wesley Gibson has become quite intensely interested iu_ the 'matrimonial
wave' that has struck Princeton and is.
Jiving in hope that it will strike Five-
Mile before spring. Cheer up, Wes., the
worst is yet to come.
Mr. and Mrs. Len. Huston, and little
daughter Ida, visited Grandview ranch
last Sunday, which was enjoyed very
much by all concerned.. Mr. Huston is
an expert 'Pit' player. One would think
he had been recently- operating on Wall
Street. 'iMS.
' Day Bros, of Princeton, ordered some
good weather a few da\s ago from the
weather bureau man down south. We
hope the subscribers of this paper will
not think that rumbling, shaking noise
(hey heard last Saturday morning was an
earthquake sent in mistake; it was only
Luke Gibson falling on the ice at his
place, 'Grandview.'  '
FIVE-MILE PARAGRAPHED.
Fred Wampole paid us a flying visit
on his way to Princeton last week. He
is feeding cattle at Gibson's lake this
winter,and did net know anything about
the 'cold wave' until he came *out and
heard" "everyone talking about it. He
say! •filling through th? ice is great sport
—there are no mosquitoes to bother
now.
Mr. Perkins is making his  home this
WEDDING BELLS.
Another of those pleasing events which
have recently stirred the social strata of
life in Princeton took place today at 2
o'clock at the residence of the bride's
parents, a few miles from here. It was
the marriage of Richard John Edmond,
to Miss Eliza A. Bromley, both of whom
are popular and have a' host of friends
throughout the valley. The nuptial knot
was tied by the Rev. J. Thurburn-Ccnn
in the presence of a large number of
friends after which a bountiful repast was
provided for the assembled guests. The
groom was for several years engaged with
T. Ellis (Lord O'Kanagin) as his chief
factor and advisory employee, in those
catiacide'shecoming acquainted with the
large floating population of which the
writer was one, and enjoying the confidence and respect of a wide circle of
acquaintances. The bride is the only
daughter and is held in much esteem by
many near friends. Miss Schisler was
bridesmaid and with the bride formed
the center of a charming scene. The
Star extends hearty congratulations.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Road to Copper Mountain Requires   Improvement
and Extension.
Marriage Licenses in Demand—Board
of Trade to Urge A.-Y.-P.
Mineral Exhibit.
Next on the tapis is a grand ball by
the bachelors.
Mrs. A.J. Marlow is expected on to-
dny's stage,- having been on a visit to
relatives at Kamloops for the past month.
! Some talk of improving and'extending Copper Mountain road is heard but
as yet no action taken. The usual prc-
cedure is by petition or resolution to the
government. The road is in need of the
things suggested and the government
will only appropriate money on proper
and urgent representation—mere talk
will not accomplish much.
Board of Trade meeting next Monday
night at 8 o'clock in the conrt house.
Membets particularly requested to attend
to consider question of mineral display
from this section at the A.-Y.-P. Exposition at Seattle.
Three marriage licenses for the month
of January show that Princeton is progressive and is doing her share in building up the great human family.
When last heard from Bill Scrnby was
reported to he heading this way, having
"put in' most of the winter in the Boundary.
H. M. V, Adams, of Kamloops, is
visiting with Manager Marlow of Bank
Commerce.
O. Bargeson arrived from Prince Rupert last week where he had been looking
after some railway contracts. He says
it is almost continuous wet weather in
that country and outdoor work anyihing
but pleasant. The wet belt extends for
about 100 miles inwards. Mr. Bargeson
is glad to be back to Princeton with its
lovely climate and handsome prospects

LOCAL NEWS WANTED.
The Star respectfully reminds its local"
readers that it is in constant need of
newsy items from all parts of the district. Mining items are valuable and of
absorbing interest to capitalists and investors and any contributions from owners, miners and prospectoYs will well
repay them. The Star aims to be wholly
local for the reason that world news is
distributed through the daily and weekly
outside press days before this paper could
print it—it has no more relish for stale
news than stale eggs. ■ Most of the Star
subscribers live on the dutside and they
crave the local news it contains, in fact
it is all thev take it for. There are thousands of investors in this.section who
want to know the latest about it. The
Star must have local news. If the people do not supply it with lockets then it
will as a final resort publish .lifelike
biographies of them. Our new Five-
Mile correspondent illustrates ^hat can
be done by loyalty to one's own particular section and the country generally.
Kindly take the hint, correspondents.
AN ENJOYABLE DANCE.
The social dance held in the I.O.O.F.
hall last Friday night was enjoyed by
all attending. Circumstances over which
no one had control prevented a number
from being present. The dances will be
given regularly during the long nights
and as a means of social amusement are
expected to be well patronized. Excellent music was furnished bv Prof. Sim-
GRADING TO BEGIN HERE.
Engineer Kennedy's staff are cross
sectioning the railway l.ine in and near
town preparatory to contractors moving
up from portions already finished. It is
expected that the dirt which was predicted to fly some seven years ago wilt
soon fly in real earnest within the borders of the town. The occasion of the-
first shovelful of flying dirt alighting on>
the grade in town should be marked by
some appropriate demonstration after so
many years of tedious waiting. -Perhaps,
an old fashioned barbecue accompanied
by musical strains from the lyre and the
tom-jon, closing with a sun dance and
the singing of "Waiting, Yes, Waiting,"
would be as appropriate as anything.
Did some one suggest also the burning
of. the effigies of those politicians who -
were responsible for the delay, and the
erection of an illuminated statue of
Uncle Jim with eulogy of him at the
unveiling ? Let the dirt fly, and swiftly,.

THE RETROGRESSIVE "U."
This is a transitory world.    It is
a decree of Nature that  all  things
must  change, and  without change
there cannot be any progress.    The
old darkey uttered more philosophy
than he knew when he said : " The
world  do  move."    Even  our language  changes  in  form   and pro-
nounciation.     It  is  believed   that
the  phonograph    records  recently
safe-deposited to be used again two
centuries hence  will  be unintelligible in  pronounciation   to the listeners of   that   da}'.     Words   are
born  or- 'coined'   every    day  and
philologists are busy burying others
at every  revision  of the dictionaries.    So, what reasonable ground
is there for retaining dying or dead
word forms which  the usage of the
American   continent  and the much
larger  majority  of English speaking people condemned long ago.
Around the letter " u " storm
clouds have arisen in the east because some fogey in the last stage
of mental decrepitude has ordered
the old country adaptation,of this
letter in "honor," " labor." etc.,
in school books. To disturb the
vogue that has obtained in our public schools and the custom of the
•country for generations is an act of
folly, especially when the results
must be reactionary and serve no
good purpose for literature or education. The English language is
clumsy enough without retaining
cumbersome and superfluous letters.
Spelling reform is needed, if only
for the sake of the thousands of
foreigners who come to our shores
yearly and are scattered from Princeton to Paspebiac. Any educationist who endeavours to simplify
our language, instead of muddle
and confuse, will at least earn the
gratitude of those immigi ants struggling to master their adopted language. Where a letter has no
earthly significance in sound or
meaning as in "governo(u)r," "ar
dour," "humo(n)r," &c, cut it
out. This is a practical, logical
age, in which things are not done
without reason, and good reason
at that. Because our grandaddies,
and relatives in the old land make
"labor" more "laborio[u]s and
clumsy is that sufficient reason to
perpetuate a lack of symmetrical
form in Canada ? Toadyism in
any form has no place in the free
and independent west.
One class that will  not be moved
by any  order  to adopt  the objec
tionable "u" is the printer.    Mauy
recent reforms are already traceable
to.him.    He delights in lopping off
anything" that  is  worn out or useless and positively refuses to spell
"program" "programme" or "cata
log" "catalogue." "He has  elimi-l
nated  the  hyphen from today, tomorrow,   tonight  and so on, until
there are  few   hyphenated .words
left,   and  he divides  wherever it is
handiest,  which  saves much tedious  spacing.    Mr. and Esq. are no
longer in  general use in up-to-date
journals.    All this and more means.' £
economy of space and time.    From  (j
the  purely   mechanical  standpoint
there is, therefore, much in favor of
our spelling  reform   as  compared
with that of Britain.

Sand is such a common and simple thing that until recently no one
thought of it as a remedial agent
for certain stomach troubles. On
the authority of those who have
tried it and proved its efficacy it
can be recommended for disorders
of that organ and intestinal derange -
ment. A patient in Princeton, suffering for years, has found it valuable where all other remedies failed.
Sterilized sand in doses of a table-
spoonful taken once daily or as the
patient deems necessary, swallowedj

At that rate the fourteen hens cost
about J1.34 a month, and a bit more than
four cents a day. Each hen cost approximately $1.15 a year, and less than .003
cents a day. Throughout the year the
largest number of eggs laid in a day was
11 and the smallest number two. ;•;;£
"I have been able to reap larger profits
from the marketing of eggs," said Zimmerman, "because I feed the hens so
they lay in the winter months when eggs
are worth more money My ration is a
mixture of fifteen pounds of oat and rye
chop, five pounds ot middling and five
pounds of bran, fed warm.

I buy young pullets from good stock. I

arrived in the United States. "Sure, it's
generous everybody is. I asked at the
post office about sindin' money to me
tnittaer, and the young man tells me I can
get a money order for ten dollars for ten
cents!   Think of that now 1"
Over in Alberta they, hoe it down to
order something like this :
"Ladies join your lily-white hands !
