MISSIONARY DEPARTS
Rev. T. A. Osborne, family and maid
left for Chesterfield, Eng., last Mondav
where they will visit until their return to
White Rock, B.C., in November. During his pastorate here he gave unstintedly not only of his time and ability toward
the highest calling to which man can
aspire, the uplift and salvation of humanity, but he also gave liberally and
without ostentation of his material substance. Often discouraging as missionary work is on the frontier of civilization,
Mr. Osborne, nevertheless, cheerfully
moved in and out among the people, scattering the gospel seeds in word and work.
As worshipful master iu the Orange order
and of high standing in the Oddfellows
and Masons he will be much missed by
the brethren. Star joins a host of friends
in wishing 'bon voyage' and safe return
to Mr. Mrs. and Miss Osborne.
The Spokane Powwow was a great
success with the pictorial pageant by
4,000 school children, and with the
coronation ball in the evejning, at
which the Inland Empire princesses
were guests of honor—75,000 visitors
were present.
DAY WE CELEBRATE'
WELCOME TO ALL
TILLICUMS TOO
CELEBRATION NOTES.
Everything points to a successful
two days' celebration beginning early
next Tuesday morning and closing
Wednesday night. The various committees have worked faithfully to
make the celebration worthy of the
national day—it remains for citizens
generally to second their efforts.
Guests from far and near will be present—a generous welcome awaits them.
The program will be carried out to
the last item with the usual incidentals that accompany a big time.
While there will be no balloon or
aero exhibitions there is sure to be
some highflyers among the Pegasi
coming to the races. The prizes are
drawing swift steeds and the money
goes to the horse first under the wire.
The judges and starters are selected
for their experience and fair decisions will be given.
The clerk of tho weather predicts
gentle breezes, clear sky, warm days
and cool evenings beginning next
Monday.
The band is deserving a large patronage at the civic ball. The music
will be given by the Princeton orchestra and that is a guarantee of dulcet
tones and good time.
Lacrosse teams representing Keremeos, Hope and Princeton will compete for the prize now raised. $50
better than announced in the official
program—$150 cash looks good these
days to any athletic organization and
the fellows are all keen to put their
grabhooks on it. Victory goes to the
swift and strong and the sporting
editor believes the public will get a
little more than their money's worth
out of lacrosse alone if fun and excitement can do it. The old Greeks
said: 'see the races and die,' we say
see lacrosse and live.
Expectation is running high on the
result of the baseball tournament.
Four good teams are reported to be
in the competing line. Copper mountain, Nickle Plats mine, Hedley and
Princeton. One hundred and fifty
'bones' will be paid the victorious
team. There is plenty of excitement
in any ball game when the fans and
rooters get down to business and erit-
cize every move; four games offer
scope for the most enthusiastic, admirers of baseball. See the games
and discuss the probabilities with
your wife or lady friend. Since the foregoing was in type it is learned that the
Tulameen team is coming.    All set!
The horse races are, as usual, a
source of much speculation and interest. No one reading the prize list
and the character of the race can
fail to be satisfied with the bill of far*?.
Racers from outside points are coming and local horsemen will be there
with swift steeds at the sound of the
gong.
Practise   games   of   lacrosse    and
baseball are kept up with vigor. Last
Sunday a game of baseball between
the Married Men and Singles showed
that there are some ball players in
the old town. Score 5 to 6 in favor
of the unmarrieds.
The following telegram speaks for
Itself: Hope, June 19, paid, to S. R.
Gibson. Hope lacrosse team will play
in Princeton on Dominion Day. Have
you got nets? Wire reply. Signed Luke
Gibson.
Dominion Day will be observed as1
'tag day' by the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary. No one should be without <t
tag on this memorable occasion.
Luke Gibson, of Hope, arrived in towtt
yesterday.   He is the first of a large contingent coming to celebrate.
Yes, tillicums are coming from Cho--
paco, Looloohooloo, Keremeos and way-
points.
Getrichquick gamesters, racing speculators and betting men are here and coming with a ton of money to invest in the
events.
THE WIDE WORLD.
President Wilson favors a Giant-
White Sox world tour ifecause it may
league and in this way forward Secretary Bryanus pejj_!e plan.
A Toronto committee has declared
for total prohibition and adoption of
the Rowell policy.
A boquet of white clover, the kind
that grows everywhere in the yards
and in the fields of many states, is
one of the best housefly eradicators
known. The Kansas board of health
in its April bulletin urges that those
who are troubled with flies in the
house in spite of screens and persistent swatting try the little boquets of
white clover and see the flies get out.
Tenders have been called for the
first three miles of the new Welland
canal, from the Lake Ontario end.
The tenders will be opened at Ottawa in July tCad it is expected to
have work begun by August. The
total cost of the new canal is estimated at $55,000,000.
Miss Evelyn Clarkson of London,]
Eng., in a recent meeting in Lexington said that in England many of the)
women were unable to earn more
than 50 cents a week in the sweated!
industries of London. At the sameJ

"The Modern Woman in Industry."   1

PEACE, SWEET PEACE
_._
Prince Lichnowsky, was present at
the- Anglo-German press dinner held
recently at the Savoy hotel, London.
In proposing the toast of the King'
Prince Lichnowsky spoke of the remarkably cordial welcome offered to
the King and Queen, not only by the
imperial family, out also by the whole
German people, without any distinction of political party or of class. It
was difficult for him to find words to
express the deep impression made
upon him by the genuineness of the
fueling displayed and the warmth o.
the greeting that the august visitors
received during their stay. The great
success of their majesties' visit
prove once more how unfounded and
erroneous were all rumors of unfriendly feelings amongst his fellow-
ee.ntiymen and how fully they appreciated their majesties' coming as
a -fresh, proof of the existing bonds of
sympathy between the two courts and
the.(tgjp nations.

DOMINION DAY.
Dominion Day is the culmination
of a long drawn, bitter,  yet bloodless, agitation to weld the scattered
provinces into  a  federated Dominion of Canada.    Time has justified
the wisdom   of   the  confederation
which  gave   birth   to  a  new star
among  the   galaxy of nations  on
that  bright  morning  of July   ist,
1867.     The   social,   physical  and
geographical boundaries which had
divided  the country,  accentuating
and  perpetuating   petty jealousies
and  distinctions,  were   eliminated
by the family union.    It was an instance  of that secret  struggle  fcr
unity  and  brotherliness which are
either latent or active in individual
humanity and which is  prominent
in  the philosophy of life.     From
weak  and   insignificant   separated
provinces  a   firm   foundation  was
laid for   the  nation  now growing
rapidly and lustily.    It is an appropriate illustration  of what may be
accomplished   toward   that united
empire of which so much 'noise' is
made  in  certain  flamboyant journals.     A confederated empire with
one central and representative government is now virtually possible
on the broad bases formed by the
union  of states  and provinces into
nations such as  the commonwealth
of Australia, South Africa and the
Dominion  of Canada.      The   day
we  celebrate  in  Princeton will be
loyally observed by some eight millions of people, distributed in populous cities of a half million down to
the lone  settler  on the thin line of
civilization far outflung to the last
west outpost on the Pacific or north
to the midnight sun on the lonely
Peace  and  mighty Mackenzie.    It
is a glorious privilege  for all who
by birth or  intention  make homes
in this  Dominion  to be a factor in
the process of nation building.    In
laying the foundations for our sons
and daughters  the  first to be considered  are   the  enduring  things.
Righteousness exalts a nation, education of the practical kind  is necessary in the eternal law of progress and spiritual knowledge must
be gained if a  nation  is  to be at
peace with its neighbor and its people happy, healthy and contented.
Glorious then in political and spiritual outlook the material is no less
inviting. The largest country in
America and doubling in area several European nations Canada is no
mean country and its people may
with worthy pride say : Civis Cana-
diensis sum. British Columbia has
an area of 372,630 sq. miles; Britain, 89,600 sq. miles ; France, 204,-
000; Germany, 208,000; United
States, 3,602,990; Dominion of
Canada, 3,745,574 square miles. It
will thus be observed that in our
grand and rotund proportions 'there
is nothing small about us.' To all
our visitors next Tuesday, Dominion Day, a sincere welcome is extended and that the occasion may
prove profitable in nationalizing
thought and pleasurable in social
intercourse is the desire of every
citizen.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
That the refusal of the gift of
a million dollars by Andrew Carnegie to the Methodist Episcopal
church south was a piece of gallery
play cannot be doubted in the light
of reason and demonstrable fact.
Giving, whether it be of material
substance or self effort, is the essence of virtue. Giving is unselfed
love, ennobling and enriching all
whom- it may concern. Even the
man with a mania for giving is all
the better for lightening his burden
of riches. To slap a giver in the
face is to- discourage a cardinal virtue, one of the noblest traits of
man. Encourage giving at all
times, in all places and especially
for benevolent and philanthropic
purposes, which sanctify the gift.
While the labor commission is
making an exhaustive investigation
into some of the matters relative to
wages and conditions of labor it
may not be irrelevant to suggest
that inquiry be made into that terror of travelers and those having
business with officials and understrappers : the tip. It is saidthat contractors and bosses on large public
works as well as foremen in industrial trades exact a tip from those
seeking employ. To exploit the
poor, unsuspecting laborer or the
gullible public by tip or graft is an
inexcusable wrong. If permitted
tc*go unchecked a nation of grafters
will develop and a huge altar set up
for worship of the god of corruption and dishonesty. The intolerable tip must go.

EAST   PRINCETON
The manufacture of cement will begin in a few
weeks. A permanent payroll and a growing town
with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two
railways will serve transportation.

Four hundred thousand pounds of
frozen Australian beef and mutton,
the first shipmeat of its kind to the
Pacific ro;is_, were landed at San
Francisco last wesx. The meat was
sold in Australia with the understanding that only a nominal profit should
be made. If the agreement is violated,
Australia will ship direct, eliminating
the middle man's profit and assuming
all the risk.

GOOD COOK REQUIRES SENSE
Domestic service is not only indispensable, it is personally exacting asserts a writer in the Atlantic Monthly.
It requires a higher grade of personal
character than any corresponding
grade of work. All forms of personal
service require this same quality of
character, although such different
kinds of skill and knowledge. Engineer, architect, lawyer, minister,
teacher, nurse, governess, coachman,
cook, maid, housekeeper, housewife or
homemaker, fa'ther and mother all
need the same qualities of fidelity patience, kindness', devotion, honesty
and good manners. To be a good
Tather is more creditable than to he a
good business man, for it takes, not
more talent, biff more intelligence and
more kinds of virtue. To be a satisfactory domestic cook requires in the
same way more varied good . ertse
than to be a skilled milliner. A thoroughly valuable child's nurse must
have much more admirable personal
qualities than a saleswoman needs.
EDUCATED 'HELP' IN THE HOME
I It is noticed that homeseekers are
beginning to look for what is termed
"lady" help in the housework. Mothers are realizing that the right influences should be thrown about childhood and that children should not be
left to associate with persons whose
Thl.ye around amfliflg .. jY- wit ho set
ideals are not of the highest quality.
The early years are the formative ones
in point of manners and speech as
well as morals. The kindness and
honesty and simple Tightness of many
homeworkers in the past has atoned
for their deficiencies in the elements
of what is superficially seen as good
breeding; but nowadays when education is to.be had by so many people it
is urged that there need not be illiteracy in the home. It is pointed out
that many women are in need of work
who have not quite enough native
adaptation to succeed in the business
world and that these may yet be found
turning back to homemaking as a
proud employment.
A NEW DIOCESE
We are informed through the lay
representative of the Similkameen
church, who attended Synod in Vancouver, that it has been finally arranged to make the Kootenay churches into a separate diocese having its
own bishop, Who will be elected in a
short while. The memorial recently
presented to Bishop DePencier by the
churchwardens of the Similkameen
churches had to be deferred until the
appointment of the new bishop. The
memorial reque'sts that the church
in the Similkameen valley be put on
a better financial footing, as the present stipend of the clergyman is not
a living wage.

 One of the best laws ever enacted
Is the 'Lazy Husband' act passed by
the last legislature, whiph went into
effect last week. It provides that any
husband who is convicted of laziness
in failing to provide for his family
can be put to work ou the rock pile
'making little ones out of big ones,'J
or digging dithces, or working on the
streets. This law was badly needed
and should have been enacted years
ago. Any husband who is so worthless that he will idle away his time
while his wife is compelled to take
in washing or engage in other work
to support his family should be compelled to do his duty.—Leader, Molson, Wash.

WHEREFORE ?
Editor   Star.—Sir:     Can   you   find
space in your valuable paper for these
few lines?   The residents of this district   are   greatly   inconvenienced   at
having to lock all doors and windows
every time they leave the house for
a' few minutes; owing to the fact that
several parties of towns-people,whilst
enjoying a drive up the valley, see fit
to   enter   persons   homes,   and  help
themselves to anything that they may
fancy.    Only a short time ago, a regrettable   incident   of   this   kind   occurred,  when certain  people, including prominent business men in town,
deliberately walked  into  a  dwelling,
and partook .of a quantity of cream,
which  had  been  reserved  for  butter
making.    Would   these   same   people
enjoy having their homes rifled whilst
absent   therefrom?   ^ Whilst   driving
through   the   gateway,   they   passed
within a few yards of the occupier of
the place, but were evidently too much
ashamed   of   themselves,   or   in   too
great   fear   of   the   consequences,   to
say a word to him on the matter.   For
a    piece   of   tjro_s   impertinence,    I
think this is the limit.   In future s.ch
people will-be treated in the way they
deserve;  namely   as housebreakers.
Yours  faithfully,
RANCHER.

when a huge motor car bore down
upon them. The horse began to

the boy, composedly, "I can manage

one of the Chinamen aside, he asked:
