Many friends here will regret to learn

Saturday morning. Two surgical opera
tions failed to give the relief hoped for,
the end coming unexpectedly to those
who were accustomed to see her in fhe
vigor of health. An es£__able lady,
unaffected and truly^efiristian, the deceased had many^__ends here and else
where, particularly in Vancouver and
Atlin, where she wasengaged on hospi
tal staffs as matron!Alittle 3fi_re than
a year"married the separation from husband is sorrowful indeed, to whom.an'd
to all relatives Star extends sincerest
sympathy.
SEARCHING FOR LINE
Kettle Valley Route  Difficult
from Fivemile West
to Onemile.
V., V.& E. Line Located in Coquihalla
ess; But When will It
he Built?
SeeJoudry for Christmas jewelry.   Big
stock just arrived.
If is stated that the railroad is being
extended westward from Coalmont to
Otter Flat, a distance of some six miles.
At this rate Jim Hill's railroad will
eventually reach the coast, although the
exact date when we may celebrate the
consummation of that happy event is
problematical —Oroville Gazette.
j. H. Kennedy, chief of V.V. & E.
construction, arrived yesterday.
The trusses of three bridges are in position between Princeton and Coalmont
and the others will be finished arid traffic
open in about six weeks.
Brookes's party of 18 recently camped
near~Kowl__-vT__!r'-in QnemiTeJ "struck
caftip recently and pitched again on
Fivemile, running another line for the
Kettle Valley railway. The party will
shortly encamp on the suburbs of Princeton, gradually working to Coalmont.
The survey party operating under W.
W. Amburn, for the V. V. & E. Railway
completed the final location of that line
into Hope on Wednesday last.   ,'
As this is the definite location of the
V. V. & E. line, Hope is practically assured of another railway in tne near
future.
' We are in receipt of information to
the effect that construction of this line
will be commenced during the early
part of 1912, and that it will be vigorously
pushed to completion.
" The completion of this line will have
the effect of linking Hope to Princeton
and the'vast network of railroads to
the south, and of opening up the immense area of country lying between
the Similkameen and the Fraser River
valleys.—Hope News.

morning services conducted by Mr Craig
from Princeton, a service was held in the
evening and was conducted by the Rev.
J. Williams, Church of England. There
was a good attendance at both services.

. Nigel Ewart was up from Keremeos
last week and says the weather was fine
in the peach belt. He is still on the payroll of the government, not having received settlement for services and he is

the decision of the Dominion railway
commission in ordering an adjustment of

the Prouse cheese factory, Luno Melbourne, a Dereham farmer who had sixteen cows milking, was fined $40 by the

CITY 	
SALE FOR THE FIRST TlflE.
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LANDS WILL GREATLY INCREASE
Here are some of the Reasons :
East Princeton is surrounded by huge deposits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important Hinerals.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a lig=
nite coal of the best quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred em=
ployees. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For transportation, East Princeton will
have, in the near future, the Great Northern
and the Kettle Valley lines, both of which,
will pass through the townsite.
East Princeton is beautifully situated on
the Similkameen River, with an abundance
of water power available. The new city has
every facter for growth into a big industrial
centre.
It presents a rare opportunity for invest-
ment.    Get full particulars immediately.

COAL! ONI
I    The Town ot opportunity
The rails have been laid into the town and Coalmont is now the new
terminus, the base of operations for the next forty miles of railway
building.
Before six months have passed there should be a payroll in Coalmont of
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 ; a post card will bring
it to you.    There are still some 50-foot lots left
Two blocks from the centre of town at only
$225, $55 cash, bal. in 18 months to suit.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
CANADIAN CITIZEN.
Canada now boasts of a number of
high class magazines, but for artistic excellence and solid literary meat, The
Fruit Magazine, Scientific Farmer and
Canadian Citizen takes first place.
The magazine holds a unique position
amongst the monthly publications reaching our exchange table, as its whole aim
seems to be to popularize, assist and en
courage the development of the Science
of Agriculture and cultivate ideals of
true citizenship.
The  December number jusl issued, is
even better than usual.   The front cover
and   frontpiece, in  colors, are  works of
art,  while the numerous halftone illus
trations are not only beautiful but highly
instructive    In   addition  to   the   usual
features and many  other literary  gems,
we might mention a special   article by
Maxwell     Smith,    on    the    subject   of
''Patriotism;" "Philosophy  of   Develop
ment in Childhood," by Miss Ravenhill;
"A   Woman's View,"   by   Mrs.   Ruther
fo d; "Irrigation and Drainage," by F. E
Jones;   "Agriculture   and   Animal   Hus
bandry," by M. A. Jull, B  S. A.    A   full
page  engraving shows  in striking  contrast the city of Vancouver twenty years
ago. ten years ago and today.    The  first
installment of  a fascinating   Australian
romance  entitled,  "The   Little Apricot
Cu ter," by Mrs, M.   Ella Chaffey, also
appears in this beautiful Christmas num-
' ber.
This splendid magazine should be of
absorbing interest to all classes, whether
in city or country.
