RAILWAY POINTS.
Brookes's survey party is camped at
Roanie, about half way between Princeton and Welldo. Theljine of the K.V.
crosses the V.V. & E. near the red bluffs
to the south side of the Tulameen re-
crossing at Peterson's ranch to the north
side.
The construction of the Kettle Valley
railway is expected to be vigorously
pushed this year. The president of the
C.P.R is on record as saying that his
road would be first to give direct communication to the coast for the Similkameen.
It begins to look that way now.
All C.P.R. lands in the vicinity of
Penticton have been withdrawn from the
market.
Within recent years a remarkable
change of attitude has been exhibitted
towards British Columbia's timber resources. Until lately regarded by the
lumbermen with indifference, by the
farmer with disgust, and by the government with the despair bred of the apparent hopelessness of converting this public endowment into the c.sh so necessary
for the conutry's development, our for
ests have at last in regard to their com
merciaiivalue found world-wide appreciation. More than .hat, it is already within the province generally recognized that
this is ho assest to be hurridly ..disposed
of, but one that mnst through all time be
carefully husbanded.  '
Timber Area Decreasing.
Amongst the reasons for this change ot
attitude on the part of the tirhbermen,
the government and the people there are
the following: Realization of the rapidly
growing shortage in the world's supply
of timber; the encouragement given by
tlie'g. vernment to investors; the fact that
the policy of disposal did not involve
alienation; the earnest attention forestry
matters have been receiving all over the
continent; the able work of the royal
commission on timber and forestry; the
active inte est shown by the present min
ister of lands, and the educational efforts
of the provincial forest protection service.
It is then today quite generally accepted,
at any rate in theory, that while the tim
ber industry should receive encouragement, it must be conducted under such
conditions as shall insure a minimum o£
waste and strict conservation of the
mature stand; that while it is to th^great
advantage of the province that the ripe
timber be steadily cut, our present prosperity "must one day cease if we do not
foster a policy involving continued wood
crops on such and is unfit for agriculture.
Those who hold timber lands in this
province may well look to the future
with complacency. In eastern Canada]
no trade in recent years has made such!
large profits as the lumbering trade, anm
the day is fast approaching when this
will be true also in British Columbia.
The appointment of a forestery commission was a timely and popular act;
as necessary and as widely appreciated
will be the continuation by the promised
forestry bureau of the good work already

MINES AND MINING.
E. E. Emmons has completed arrangements for placer mining on his leaseholds
along the rivers. As. soon as the'»g__son
opens he will be ready to begin with a
modern equipment. Mr. Emmons has
shown staying qualities, spending considerable money acquiring the leases and
is deserving rich reward for his enterprise.
Work on the new tipple at the Princeton Coal & Land Co's mine is well advanced and it will soon be in operation.
Large quantities of machinery are arriving for the Columbia Coa & Coke Co.
at Coalmont.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Renewed interest in the Kettle
Valley Railway, uwned by the
C.P.R., is taken because of the
general report in the press of the
province that the line now being
surveyed through Princeton to
Coalmont and Hope will eventually
be the main line of the C.P.R. It
is known that this route will effect
a great saving in mileage besides
obviating the dangerous and frequently snowbound Kicking Horse
Pass. Some years ago at a banquet
in Rossland the president of the
C.P.R. stated that a more direct
route through the mountain division
had been decided upon and now it
seems that statement is about to
be carried out.

IT/WILL HELP G001J CAUSE.
To the Princeton Boaixly6f Trade, or to
whom it may concern,^-Gentlemen: I
am compiling an up-to-date and descrip
tive phamphlet of your district and town
illustrating and describing the immense
natural resources and great mineral and
arable possibilities of the Nicola, Similkameen and part of tne Okanagan val-
le}., in southern Yale district, where I
have spent the best part of my life in
exploring and trying to open up the
country in which I am interested.
The title page will be: "The richest
section of Yale district, British Columbia." Illustrated. Authentic reports on the natural resources and the industries of the Nicola, Similkameeu and
Okanagan valle}'s, with the maps and a
complete travelers guide.
The size of the pamphlet will be 6x9
nches with first class book paper the
publication will cost about $10.00 per
page, and every district described in this
publication will be illustrated throughout, the first issue will be ^eee—copies
which will be distributed free of charge
to the advertisers, and Boards of Trade
as well as the principal librairies, circu
lating   mediums aud hotels  throughout
the world.
The more advertising space sold in any
one district, the more space will be allot-
ed to that district in illustrations and descriptive matter.
A large number of the principal operating mining companies have already
contracted for a number of pages, and a
great many more have promised to assist
me in this worthy enterprise of advertising the richest district in the Dominion
of Canada. All the towns will be described from Merritt to Penticton.
W. H. Armstrong, of Vancouver, who
is interested in the development of coal
in the Nicola valley, the developement
of gold-copper ores in the Tulameen and
the development of the fruit industry at
Keremeos, says that oue cannot advertise
these rich districts too much, and they
are practically unknown to the inves ing
public, where the local papers have r.ot
been able to reach, and this pamphlet
should be supported by every business
firm.
Negotiations are under way with both
the Provincial and Dominion governments for financial assistance, besides the
publication of the different maps, which
have been published by the different
government departments relative to thefe
different districts, an up-to date map of
British Columbia is also petitioned for,
which will be insetted In this pamphlet
at the publishers expense. Your assistance and cooperation in securing these
maps with government aid is urgently requested.
I do not expect to make money out of
this publication and shall be satisfied if I
am able to clear my expenses, an early
reply will oblige.
Yours very  truly,

advertising is the Life of business—Try it
low Long does it line lo
fief h ftmrnlm Morning?
It takes some people over an hour and others do it in less than half that
time. Why? Because they are so very much smarter? Not a bit of it! The
smartest woman cannot get a quick meal without a GOOD STOVE.
A Good Stove is the best help she can get—and the cheapest. It helps to
save her money—Fuel and her Temper.   Have you got a Goon Stove ?
Are you able to check your fire down at night—so that it just keeps going?—
aud that's all. Then in the morning open your drafts, shake down your grates and
start right in to get breakfast? Can you do this with your own stove? You ran
with ours.
OUR NEW CHANCELLOR RANGES will do all this, and they will do
more. They will save you 20 per cent, on your Fuel Bill with their Economizer
attachment. They are fitted with Reversible Grates for Coal or Wood, which pull
right out and can be quickly adjusted without disturbing the lining They have a
[arge oval shaped firebox—no corners for dead ashes to lodge.
THEY ARE THE BEST BAKERS—The oven top and sides are lined with
Expanded Metal and Asbestos, and the dividing flue strips which run along the
top and down side of the oven ensures an even fire travel over oven. These two
features alone mean a properly heated oven and consequently the best baking
results.
THEY ARE BUILT FOR HARD USAGE. They are fitted with the largest
Steel Top on any range, with either 4 or 6 9 inch holes, and have Reservoir attachment on either end. The Range body is made of Wellesville polished blue steel,
out together with steeple headed rivets.
AND THEY ARE HANDSOME. Come and see for yourself and you will
agree that our Chancellor is without doubt the finest STEEL RANGE made.
We have just received a carload of these Ranges and other Stoves and feel
sure that we can clease you.    Separate Hot Water Fronts for all our Ranges.
Another  New Arrival—A  Carload  of Ai   Feed Oats.    Also a
Carload of first class Timothy Hay.    Get busy before they are all gone.

between   350  and  400  men : This  means population, which naturally
means good business.
IF YOU ARE WISE YOU will  invest in a little Coalmont real estate
now while the choice is still good.
Don't let this opportunity slip  along  with  the  others  which have got
past you.    Write for our circular and  price list ; s. post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left

FORESTRY QUESTION.
From First Page.
begun. Seeing that already for some
years experts have been employed o look
after the mining, fishing and farming in
terests the greatest asset of all has hitherto not had its due share of attention.
We have much to learn. The forestry
department of the Dominion government
which for the last five or six years has
been engaged in introducing orderly
methods, can teach ns much, but we can
learn much from our neighbors in the
United States, who 20 years ago brought
experience gained in Germauy to bear on
their forest problems and who have with
great success modified European methods
to suit conditions similiar to our own.
Amongst the most pressing matters in
this province awaiting the investigation
of trained foresters are: Further perfecting of the fire protection system and
determination of the extent to which
logging debris can be cleaned up; investigation as to whether natural reproduction is sufficiently restocking burnt and
logged over lands; how far economic
waste in coast loggiug methods is under
present conditions excusable; the obtaining by systematic methods of an approximately correct estimate of the standing
timber for the different divisions and for
the whole of the province. All these are
very vital matters, requiring careful work
and there are besides many other technical administrative and reyenue problems awaitng solution.
GENIUS, FAME, POVERTY.
Charles Dickens made $200,000 on one
lecturing tour; but his descendants, it is
said, are now in want. His eldest son,
Alfred Tennyson, whose sudden death
was recently recorded,had been travelling
through the states delivering lectures in
an endeavor to keep the family pot boiling. Tragic incidents of this kind are if
daily occurance, and yet they make as
little impression upon us as the rain on
the duck's back. One of our newspapers
in commenting on the pathetic facts,
asked the significant question: "Wha
is to become of us when we are old?''
There is but one answer: A man must
save in his youth if he will have a "nest
egg" in the days when his locks are
hoary and his earning powers have departed. But that is not all. He must
adopt a system of saving which will not
fail him in the hour of trial. This sys
tern has been provided under the Canadian Government Annuities Act, in regard to which you may obtain literature
of your postmaster, or on application to
the Superintendent of Annuieties, at
Ottawa. "   gr*

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
January 31, 1912,
According to the laws of industrial progress and the experience of founders of western towns,
there must be a tangible, genuine basis on which to establish the future city. No amount of
coaxing can bring blood out 61 a stone, nor cari the greatest scientist extract sunbeams from a
cucumber. Every man makes his own destiny==his own fortune==nothing comes by so=called
good luck.   The door is wide ajar for all who have pluck and a little capital.    Investigate Now!
