MINES AND SMELTERS
WORKING AT FULL
PRODUCTION
MINES  AND  MINERALS.
Two carloads of gypsum from Welldo
were brought down Monday for the B. C.
Portland Cement Co. The gypsum is
creamy in appearance and is wel suited
for cement making.
Dick Fitzgerald was in town this week
coming from the headwaters of Granite
and Twelvemile creeks, where he is
prospecting. He shows some good speci
mens of gold bearing ore He believes
that ihe coming winter will be" mild and
open as the chipmunks and other animals
have-not taken up winter quarters and
have small supplies. He is at a high
altitude ; weather is fine aud no  snow.
" The B C. Portland Cement Co. have
received large orders for cement from
Greenwood and Grand Forks for public
works andalsofrom Nelson. Thecement
gives perfect satisfaction.
The Hedley Gold Mining Co. is about
to put a dam on the Similkameen river
for power purposes. W. A. McLean will
be superintendent.
■ The Dominion Forestry department
has a party of surveyors and explorers at
work laying out a winter trail for settlers
and prospectors betweeu Long and Mis-
zula  lakes.
Col. Stevenson, the veteran miner, was
down at Rock Creek, where he is interested in placers.
The Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company have just paid a dividend of $2 a share on the issued capitalization of . 55,000 shares. The
.-mount of the dividend was $111,000
tnd brings the total disbursements of
taat company since profit payments
'\rere inaugurated up to $1,125,061.
The local stockholders have received
t&ejr cheques. The stock of this company has had quite a flurry. In 1907
it was up to $145, and in 1911 it was
down as low as $40. It is now quoted
at. $80. bid and $85 asked. The company has made a splendid showing
during the past two years and insiders have great faith in its ultimate
showing.
Oscar Gutman & Sons of London,
England, have agreed to design a
plant for the treatment of complex
zinc ores by a process controlled by
V P-. Allen of Toronto. The process
wiil be tried out in British Columbia.
The dividends paid by British Columbia mines so far this year amount
10 $1,654,875, and before the end of
the year the amount will probably
be over a million dollars better than
last year.
ft. J. Heilman, representing the
Tregillus Clay Products OS, of Calgary, arrived in the city Thursday.
He is here for the purpose of exploring the district for fire clay with ob-
juct of starting a plant here if the raw
material can be obtained. He is being piloted through the district by
Frank Waldrip of the Grand Forks
Deve'oprnent Co. Fire clay has been
cteironstrated in the valley in the past
and it is quite expected that a deposit
sufficient to maintain an industry can
be located.—Grand Forks Gazette.
SUMMIT CAMP CHUNKS.
Summit Camp, Oct. 20 —The packing
ot" winter supplies for Leadville, or old
Summit Camp^. has begun. Liveryman
Guthrie has the contract for packing the
Treasure Mountain supplies.
Interest seems to centre in the Treasure
Mountain adit at present. J. C. Edwards,
the superintendent, let a contract for one
hundred feet in the adit. This is
expected to at least cut the lode.
Jensen and Carlson are sending out
some nice chunks of ore from Silver
Basin. This ore is bedded in the argillyte
in place of as the others cutting the lime.
It is heavily charged with lead and zinc,
the ore occurring in bands from one to
two feet thick and the lode is twelve feet
wide. This strike is new, lies along the
north side of the Christmas Box and the
Carbouate, one mile north of the Indiana, and one claim length northeast of
the Morning Star, one of the Ross mineral claims.
There is another strike to report, also
a good one, of steel galena two feet wide.
This find is one half mile west of the
Carbonate. J. C Reilly is the lucky man
in this instance. The ore assays from
#30 to $69 per ton.
The big 60 foot lode has been traced
from the south end of the Vigo at the
Ross cabin through four claims to the
north line of the Carbonate. This is
evidently the mother lode of the Aera.
It shows some clean galena and numerous lenses lightly mineralized. It is
strange this thiug should be a stranger to
all ; to 3'our correspondent it is an open
book. It strikes with the mountain
range and cuts across the sediments and
igneous dikes.
We add eight new discoveries here last
summer.

HOPE MINING NOTES.
Placer miners are also returning to
the bars of the Fraser which have
been left almost untouched for nearly
fifty years. On Thursday two prospectors passed through Hope on their
way to Fargo Bar, a now unfamiliar
name once applied to a bar near
Keefer's.
The Siwash Creek Gold Mines Limited are now about ready to begin
sluicing.
Negotiations in connection with- the
project of installing a stainp. mill on
Hidden creek, which were delayed by
the sudden death of H. R. Bellamy,
who was promoting them, have been
resumed.
At the Aufeas work is at a standstill and "will remain so until the aeridl
tram is installed.
The clearing of the road to connect
the Araucumo with the Cariboo road
has been completed, and the crew are
now awaiting the arrival of machinery from Vancouver.—West Yale Review.
RAILWAY POINTS.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of construction on the V. V & E., was in town
Wednesdayc coming from Hope via
Coquihalla pass and down the grade He
states that, work is being actively pushed
by McArthur Bros, in the Coquihalla
and that the job will be finished on
schedule time, 1915. The remainder of
the grade from the Summit to Coalmont
will be completed aud the track laid by
the time the through route is open.
Within a few days the Kettle Valley
railway will start track laying on its
line east from Penticton. With the
completion of a trestle this side of
Three-Mile they will be able to lay
steel to the big tunnel. The work in
the tunnel, which is the only real
obstacle to the early completion of
the road between Penticton and Carmi, is proceeding satisfactorily, and
it is expected that it will be finished
early next spring. The round house
and shops have just been turned over
to the railway company by the contractors and are now ready for use.
Billy Green sajs he can hear loud reports of blasting at 'Rowlands villa' coming from the direction of the Kettle
Valley railway line. He has been waiting for vears for these sounds and now
his ear is so sensitized that he thinks the
'railroad is comin' when he hears louder
reports than usual. The Kettle Valley
is no nearer than it was six months ago
and is not likely to come at a breakneck
speed under its present directorate. What
Billy probably heard was a bull mowitch
coughing up gold dust swallowed at the
numerous deer licks in his neighbor
hood.

GRAND MASTER VISITS.
R. Dudley, grand master of the I. O.
O. F., paid an official visit to Princeton Lodge No. 52 last Thursday evening and was well pleased with all that
concerned the order. He saw the
erection of the new hall on one of the
finest locations in Princeton and predicted prosperity for the local lodge.
He spoke of the Odd Fellows' jubilee
fo be held in Victoria next June, commemorating the 50th year of the grand
lodge in B. C. A large attendance of
brethren from all parts is expected
at the jubilee.
According to a recently issued blue
book containing the administration report on the railways of India for 1912,
668 miles of line were opened to trif-
fle during the twelve months, bringing the total mileage opened up to 33,-
484 miles. At the end of 1912 there
were 2,455 miles of line sanctioned
or  under  construction.

THE POULTRY YARD.
(By T. C. Brooke.)
For the benefit of many readers
and enquiries, who keep their small
flock of chickens, the following article may be very useful at this season of the year, for with the fall cold
rains and sleet, comes the common or
simple catarrh with poultry, as with
anything that might be exposed.
One of the most common diseases of
poultry is -catarrh. It is sometimes
mild, attacks but a few birds in the
flock, and is easily overcome. At other times it is more severe, affects all,
or nearly all the birds, and only
yields to energetic and prolonged
treatment. In case of long-continued
cold and damp weather birds in different flocks may be affected at the
same time, leading to the suspicion
of an infectious disease, although it
is really due to climatic conditions. It
is important to make a careful examination as soon as the disease appears and to determine whether it is
simple or infectious catarrh as the
treatment to be adopted differs materially.
Symptoms in simple non-coatagious
catarrh the affected birds are more or
less dull, their appetites are diminished, they sneeze and the mucious
membrane is thickened, causing obstruction to breathing through the
nostrils. There appears a watery discharge, which later becomes thicker
and glutinous, the eyes are watery,
and the eyelids swollen and sometimes
held together by a thick viscid secretion. In severe cases the nostrils are
completely/bbstructed by the thick secretion, the breathing is entirely
through the mouth and is accompanied
by a wheezing or snoring sound, in
which case the bird soon becomes exhausted and dies, but in the milder
cases simple catarrh may disappear
without treatment in the course of
a few days, but in case the cause is
allowed to persist the disease may te-

OUR ADVANTAGES.
Having an abundance of resource
and a convenient and contral location, essentials for  town  building,
it remains for the people to develop,
progress  and  grow.    It  lies  with
them to induce capital  to  buy,   to
forward   industries  and  by   every
legitimate means promote the interests generally  of the whole  community.    The beauty, climate geographical     position,     government
offices, hospital,   school,   railroads,
roads, etc. all point to Princeton as
a distributing centre.    Its proximity
to seaports and the readiness  with
which it mBy  be  reached  from   a
large interior portion of the province
give it a strategical advantage which
no other town  or  city  up-country
can hope to compete with.
The raw  materials  for building
purposes, even  paint, are  all  here
and handy for local use as  well  as
for   shipping.    Copper,    magnetite
and hematite iron, fire   clay,   brick
and other clays, timber, limestone,
zinc, all are   to  obtained  here  ior
building   and   manufacturing   purposes.    So that,   with   the  cement
now made here, there is no lack of
material    for    building    a    town.
Certain   in   the   possession of the
foregoing necessaries,   there is also
no doubt of the existence of natural
resources for  the  establishment  of
industries and tne consequent   payroll.    Coal, copper and placer mining, lumbering, farming and cattle
raising   are   among   the  industries
now carried on and   these  may  be
added to in  the  immediate  future
by the production  of silver,   lead,
gold, platinum, pulp and paint.
Thus, in a brief yet comprehensive
way,   may   be   outlined   the   advantages   Princeton   has   for   distributing   and  manufacturing   her
tributary natural products.    Roads,
trails and waterways converge here
and   with the  completion  of that
great artery through the  province,
the   transprovincial   motor    trunk
road, Princeton will  be  prominent
in the. limelight of publicity   and
progress.    All other towns  in   the
Similkameen will thrive proportionately with  the  opening   of transportation direct to the coast.   Travel
and trade  will   receive a   mighty
NOTES AND COMMENTS
The very general support  so  far
given by citizens to the  committee
entrusted with the  appointed   task
of soliciting members  and  the reformation of the board  of trade  is
in line  with  the  duty  incumbent
upon all who live here and  in   the
vicinity.    Wholly non-political and
absolutely free from the shadow  of
a tinge of sectionalism or self seeking the  reconstructed  board   must
be of much benefit in promoting the
interests ofthe town.    New, young,
unbiassed, broadminded men should
be at  the  helm  and  all  members
ought to be animated by the  spirit
of harmony and compromise.   Even
Napoleon (not  Bowser)  could  not
have it all his own  way,   therefore
it will be expected of every member
to   implicitly   observe   tbe    rules,
bylaws    and    constitution,    while
gently conceding a point or  two  if
necessary to  opponents in  debate.
Attendance is vital at the  monthly
meetings.    Prompt payment of dues
is   as   steam   to   the  engine—the
motive power.    Princeton board of
trade should be one of the  liveliest
and  most  effective institutions  in
the country.

Winston Churchill again proffers
the olive  branch  to Germany  by
taking a year's  'holiday'   in  naval
construction.    He hopes, with   the
cooperation of Germany, to influence
Europe, and possibly Japan and the
United   States,   toward  a  general
slowing down of warship  construction.    He barely mentioned Canada
and'the part  she  was  to  play  in
uavy construction but no doubt  he
would accept the proposed contribution of $35,000,000  if    the grandmotherly senate  at  Ottawa  would
permit.     He     makes | the    most
astounding statement that the armament   firms  "must   be   our   own
servants not our masters.'    The inference is plain that  the armament
firms have dominated  the  government iu the past  and  made  emergencies to  order.    It  is  time  Mr.
Churchill put a stop to the ruinous
and silly naval supremacy race and
paid   some I attention   to   universal
peace.    War is   a   huge   humbug
and is  instigated   by   the   money
lenders and gum makers.    Stop it.
A neat, well printed, clean newspaper is one of the best ads. a town

people and is well patronized by advertisers. Newspaper style is changing from.the old, big, blanketty,
sloppy, news-by-freight 'boiler plate'
from Eaton's, to the tasteful, toned,
compact, 'all white' journal.

Occasionally someone sends in an
item or a long extract from some
newspaper, with the suggestion that
"it will do to fill." There is not
much difficulty in "filling up" a newspaper. The great difficulty is to decide what not to print. It is the effort of the Colonist to appear before
its readers each morning with a clean
and wholesome class of news. Readers generally have very little idea
how much available matter is sacrificed to carry out this idea. There
is not a night on which we do not receive over the wires reports of murders, assaults, divorces, suicides or
some scandal. Unless there is some
special reason why these should be
published, 'they are promptly consigned to the waste-paper basket. We
think our readers appreciate the fact
that no head of a household ever feels
it necessary to look through the columns of this paper to see if there is
anything in it which his children
ought not to see. There are some persons who think a paper is dull if it
strives to be decent by avoiding needless particulars of crimes committed
near at home, omitting references to
most crimes committed elsewhere and
eschewing scandals altogether, but we
are not catering for the approval of
such people.
To our way of thinking, the class of
matter which we exclude is1 not news.
We have never suscribed to the idea
that the doings of the underworld or of
disreputable people in high life are the
matters of chief public interest. We
do not hold to the doctrine, not infrequently held in some newspaper
offices, that crime and scandal are per
se news. Circumstances may make
them so, but, prima facie, they should
receive, to our way of thinking, just
as little publicity as possible. We
have picked up one after another several exchanges brought in by today's
mail. Prominent on the first page of
each one of them is the story of some
crime or some suggestive tale made
conspicuous by staring headlines.
The Colonist could print plenty of
'that sort of "news," but it does not,
and it is not going to.-—Victoria Colonist.
THE THINKER.

Back of the beating hammer
By which the steel is wrought,
Back of the workshop's clamor
The seeker may find the Thought,
The Thought that is ever master
Of iron and steam and steel,
That rises above disaster
:  And tramples it under heel!
The drudge may fret and tinker
Or labor with dusty blows,
but back of him stands the Thinker,
:   The clear-eyed man who Knows;
For into each plow or sabre,
Each piece and part and whole,
Must go the Brains of Labor
Which gives the work a soul!
Back of the motor's humming,
Back of the belts that sing,
Back of the hammer's drumming,
Back of the cranes that swing,
There is the eye which scans them
Watching through stress and strain,
There is the Mind which plans them—-v
Back of the brawn, the Brain!
Might  of  the   roaring  boiler,
Force of the engine's thrust,
Strength of the sweating toiler,
Greatly in these we trust,
But back of them stands the Schemer
The    Thinker    who   drives    things
through,
Back of the job—the Dreamer.
Who's making the dream come true!

Peru in future is to enjoy religious
tolerance for all sects. Hitherto the
-exercises of any other than the Roman Catholic religion has been prohibited by the constitution. The
Chamber of Deputies adopted by 66
votes against 4 an amendment of Article IV of the constitution, dealing
with the subject, which had been already approved by the Senate. In
spite of the constitution, the government, however, had permitted the
building of a number of Protestant
churches and mission schools in various parts of the country.

Causation—Simple catarrh is the undue result of exposure to cold, dampness "or draughts. It is most commonly found where the poultry house
is damp, and filthy, with cracks and
openings through which the wind
blows ;upon the birds. Birds can have
lots of fresh air without being exposed to draughts or dampness, which
in most cases is fatal. The birds
most apt to be affected are those having their strength already impaired
by insufficient or innutritious food, by
lack of exercise, or by attacks of parasites.
Treatment   catarrh    is    best    pre-
Treatment.—Catarrh is best pre
vented by keeping the birds in a
strong, vigorous condition through
proper exercise, good food, clear water, clean houses and ventilation without draughts.
If the disease appears serious wash
out the mouth and nostrils twice a
day with boric acid, solution of the
strength of fifteen grains to the ounce
of water or crestine solution (one per
cent.) If slight cold affecting nostrils

PHILOSOPHY OF LITE.
The spirit of 'buck' is so strong in
some bronchos and even in human
beings that no matter what is required of them they simply 'buck' without
rhyme or reason. Stupidity is at the
bottom of it all. j
There is something seriously wrong
with one who thinks it a mark of sincerity and genuineness to be continually uttering disagreeable, cutting,
words. Remember, the true gentleman or lady receives intended affronts
without remark, or notice and never
gives any, of course.
A graduate in the university of life
is worth a dozen crammed with book
lore.
Many a home would be cheerier if
good cooking prevailed. Soggy bread
and half done mush are poor starters
for the breadwinner to begin a hard
day's work. Where there is good
cooking there are smiling faces, pleasant words, and some say absence of
indigestion.
The sensitive person is self important, vain and ignorant.
Mothers are to blame for th6 big
crop of unmarriageable young women,
who were never taught to bake, sew
on buttons, mend or make a plain
house look tidy, homelike and clean.
Modernity consists of idleness, gossip, street parade, tango and all sensuous pleasures'in the whirl of which
home and its pure endearments are
forgotten.
Perhaps the most insipid of all
characters is that one which is neither hot nor cold, lukewarm. They are
the spew of humanity.
An honest person is always prompt
to pay bills. Dishonest ones promise
instead of pay.
A pessimist or knocker always pulls
opposite to progress and true reforms.
Notice is hereby given that, on the first
day of December next, application will
be made to the Superintendent of
Provincial Police for renewal of the
hotel license to sell liquor by retail in

situate at Tulameen, in the Province of
British Columbia.

Mrs. Recently Wed—Did I appear
nervous at.all during uiy marriage ceremony, Clara?
Friend (envious)—A little at first, dear,
but not after George had said 'I will.'
Mother (alter the wedding)—Well our
daughter and her husband are off at last.
What's troubling you, John?
Father—I don't quite like that young
fellow's parting words. He didn't say
'Good-bye' ; he said 'Au revoir.'
A clergyman whose patriotism exceeded
his powers of oratory was speaking upon
his favorite subject. At last he felt that
something great was required of him.
He worked himself up to a climax.
'Patriotism,' he exclaimed, 'is the backbone ofthe British Empire, and what we
have to do is to train that backbone and
briug it to the front.'
Young Man (over the counter)—If I
should want to exchange this engagement ring for something else ic will be all
right, won't it ?
- Jeweller—Oh, certainly, with pleasure.
We are always glad to accommodate
patrons.
Same Yonng Man (over the counter,
one year later)—I believe ' you told me
when I bought this ring I could.exchange
it for something else.
Teweller—Yes.    What will you have"?
Young Man—Well, I'd like to exchange It for a barrel of flour, a bushel of
potatoes, a ham and a load of coal.

"Well, there are Mr. Thomas W: WiT-

the room waiting for something to turn'
