PERILS OF THE TJTAIL
Old-Timer Narrowly Escapes crossing
Great and Last Divide.
Robert Stevenson, pioneer, mountaineer, explorer and traveller, had another
close call when he left here about a
month ago to cross the Hope mountains
on his way to Chilliwack aud home.
Except he had nine lives he verily must
have passed in his checks long ago,
for he has had many hairbreadth escapes.
His biographer, whoever he may be,
(probably Dave Higgins, tbe noted raconteur and frontiersman) has enough
material to date to make a very portly
volume, and "Bobbie," as he is affec-
tionatelv named among his tillicums, is
still making material for this book. In
a letter to a friend here he states that he
has crossed Hope Mountains more than
loo times but never had such a horrible
experience as this last one. He met a
p -or fellow on the trail and shared his
grub with him which left his rations
short. Between cold and hunger Robert
was in bad plight. He says: "I was
almost unconscious, but I just stuck to
the saddle, the old black horse did the
rest, and took me straight to the hotel
door and pawed the ground to try and
tell the people inside that we were at the
door. It took two stout men to lift me
out of the saddle and I was given a large
drink of brandy beiore being taken into
the house to thaw out." Mr. Stevenson
is 70 years old. The Star extends Xmas
greetings to him.
WHAT'S IN A NAME ?
The term, printer's 'devil,' so commonly used and applied to the boy "who
washes inky rolleis and does the cleaning
up around a printing office, has a peculiar
and romantic history, says Printer &
Publisher. In the early days printing
was styled the "black a't" and printers
were supposed to be in league with Satan-.
But it was in the time of Aldus Minutins
in Venice that matters took a serious
turn. This was the famous printer who
first published the Greek and Roman
classics. He took into his employ a
negro boy who was homeless on the
streets of Venice. The people supposed
the boy was an imp of Satan and helped
in the printing. Mobs collected about
to wreck it when the boy was brought
forward and exhibited and shown to be
flesh and blood, but, he was still called
the "printer's devil" and every boy in
his position ever since has been called
that name.
Meeting of married men is called for
8 o'clock tonight at tbe Bank to consider
matters in connection with the Masquerade Ball. Almost needless to remark the
ball will be a grand success, as the married people never do things in halves.
Next Monday is the shortest day in the
year. -
ABOLISH C0ALTAR1FF
Favor Removal of Tariff on
Coal Between U. S.
and Canada.
Washington Coal Owners Fear Competition with Our Fine Quality
of Fuel.
j Following the agitation begun by Jim
Hill and some influential newspapers for
the removal of the tariff on coal, the following telegram is interesting :
' " Washington, Dec. n.—At the hearing
before the ways and means committee today coal operators of the eastern states
declared that they were in favor of the
.removal of the tariff on coal shipments if
a reciprocal relation could be established
with Canada.
Following the hearing a member of the
committee said that on the present showing tbe tariff on this commodity would
very probably be removed.
Although the coal operators of Wash
ington have taken no action in the
matter, Representative Jones is inclined
to oppose the removal of the duty believing that it would place the Washing,
ton mines in severe competition with the
British Columbia mines."
RAILWAY RUMBLINGS
Grading   well  Advanced and
Tracklaying Soon
to Begin,
Understood that the Bridge Question
is Settled—Grading Soon
from Allison.
SANTA CLAUS COMING.
The Xmas Tree and entertainment to
be given for the children of the district
is making very satisfactory progress. The
various committees report encouragingly
the general public responding bountifully to solicitations. It is an old and
time honored custom to gather all the
children in the presence of Santa Claus
and give them some token of his love.
Pnncetonians have not forgotten their
affectionate duty toward the little ones
and this year a larger amount than ever
before collected has been donated to the
laudable purpose of making the kiddies
happy. The program committee have
arranged for a two hours entertainment
in which kiddies will take part and well
known local adult talent will assist
The Star is requested to intimate that as
many of the ladies of the district who
leel so kindly disposed will please bring
or send, cake, pie or sandwiches. Coffee
will be served by the refreshment committee. Santa Claus is feeling fine and
dandy and will have a kind word and a
present for all his deal ones.
', A report is current that tracklaying
will begin from Keremeos soon after New
Year's Day. There are some 25 miles of
tracklaying on the Spokane-Portland
line which will be completed about the
first of the year and the outfit will then
be transferred to Keremeos.
A somewhat disquieting rumor has
been afloat that the bridge over the Similkameen would be removed, as it interfered with the V,,V. & E. in crossing
Bridge Street. It is understood that the
Public Works Department, as the result
of a conference with Chief Kennedy has
consented to raising the bridge to suit
the railway people. Bridge St. is the
main artery of Princeton and must have
unimpeded bridge crossings.
J. H. Kennedy, engineer of construction, was at the Great Northern hotel
last week, spending a day in this vicinity
and Ashnola. He preserves a sphinxlike silence on railway matters but talks
quite fluently about the weather and the
eternal fitness of things generally. The
Star man does not ask him any more for
interviews on railway probabilities but
simply takes a 'square' look at him and
guesses at the rest.
A well founded report has been received that grading will begin early in
the New Year between Allison and this
town. For a small force of men, 275,
a good rate of progress has been made
between Hedley and Allison and some of
the contractors are about ready to move
on.
Before leaving for Ottawa from Winnipeg, the Hon. Frank Oliver said that
British Columbia would next year receiv^
more attention from the large American
investors than in any previous year, and
his department would make special arrangements to look after that province's
interests.
SUNDAY SCHOOL SOCIAL.
The Sunday School social to be held
on the evening of the 30th inst. has promise of a good time for all who patronize
it, Sunday schools are an acknowledged
benefit to every community and make
for the betterment of the rising generation. Socials are intended as a stimulus
to the life of the school and afford^en-
joyable opportunity for the chil«j/n to
meet and receive prizes and awfls for
attendance and proficiency. Thepnnual
report is expected to give some<Jiterest-
ing data regarding the progress #id standing of the school. Superinte

HARD TO PLEASE.
Running a "one-horse power" newspaper is a nice thing. If we publish
jokes people say we are rattle-brained".
If we publish original matter they say
we don't give them enough selections.
If we give them selections they say we
are too lazy to write. If we don't-go to
church we are heathens. If we go we
are hypocrites. If we remain in the
office we ought to go out and bustle. <If
we go out then we are not attending to
business. If we publish a short and pithy
item then the sensitive ones, who are also
guilty, think they are the persons referred"
to and say hard things about us, of course
behind our back. If we wear old clothes
they laugh at us. If we wear good
clothes thev say that we have a pull..
Just as likely as not some one will say we

-HELP THE NEWSPAPER.
The <ageruess with which  information about Princeton and district is sought may be estimated by
the large number of applications
from all parts for the booklets published by  the  Board of Trade.    It
would be interesting to know how
this quest, or thirst,  for literature
concerning  Princeton,   originated.
By some means peoplo in the nethermost  parts   of  civilization  have
.heard of it and an  interest  awakened in  them.    No special advertising  has ever  been    undertaken
hitherto.    The  Star  has  been the
only  medium  for   advertising  the
district and it is only  reasonable to
suppose that its humble efforts have
had some reward in directing attention  this way.     If it,   then,   as a
newspaper has induced  investment
or aroused  inquiry  it  ought to be
increasingly circulated and patronized.    There are five general stores
and three hotels in Princeton and of
this number only  one  hotel  and a
store advertise.    There  are  many
residents here who do not subscribe
for the Starj thus discouraging any
ambition  behind  it  to further the
interests of the community.    It has
never been on a paying  basis, due
to  the  indifference  of those . who
should be its patrons  and subscribers.    A.nother number and the Star
will  have  closed  its ninth year ol
publication.     It   is   urgent that all
arrearages for  subscription, adver
tising and job work should be paid
so that contemplated improvements
may  be carried  out and the paper
kept  to  the  fore  during  the year
1909—the year that is to see the advent of the   'iron horse'   in Princeton  and  revolutionized  social and
commercial  conditions.    Help and
sustenance is, therefore, wanted and
ought to be  given if the Star is to 1
fulfil its intended mission and maintain a respectable appearance in the
company   of   other   journals.     A
newspaper,  more  than  other businesses, depends  on  voluntary  and
spontaneous support.    In a sense it
is  a luxury,  since   men  can  live
without it.    But it is indispensable
in progress and development in this
enlightened twentieth  century.   It
is an educator, not  after the pedagogic  style  of   teaching  children,
•but  in  imparting  knowledge that
. makes robust citizens of men and
:    women,  corrects social error,  exposes political corruption, originates
ideas and propositions for  the general good of the community, wards
and many more the newspaper is
educative and responds to every
proper call where help, guidance
and moulding of public opinion are
required. In these closing days of
the old year renew subscriptions
with cash in advance, settle long
standing bills, advertise, see that
your job printing is done here and:
the Star will shine forth with un-!
usual brilliance. Instead of four
or six pages there will be eight,
instead of one man, 'poor devil,'
comprising its staff, there will be
three or four on its payroll. Help
the Star and it will help you.

"Killing time !" What au odd expression. Time is the point at which we
touch eternity. Time is the stuff out of
which life is made. Time is the measure
of tha soul's pulse beat. Time is the
tick in eternity's clock. Time is the
dimple in the cheek of possibility.
Time is the brightest jewel on the bosom
of fate. Kill possibility. Kill time and
you will murder opportunity. Kill time
and you stab every favoring chance. And
yet men klil time! What universal
slaughter! Slaughtered Sundays! Murdered Mondays ! Torn Tuesdays! Was
ted} Wednesdays! Tattered Thursdays!
Frittered Fridays! Slam Saturdays]
Time—Time is money, lime is power,
Time is fame, Time is the fool's burden
and the wise man's treasure He who
kills time insults Providence.—Tolstoi.
In the Toronto Globe recently John A.
E»van graphically describes the Cobalt
district of noithern Ontario, where he
slates that in a patch of ground 12 miles
square ,9 000,000 ounces of silver were
produced last year and he predicts that
this year will see it increased by nearly
one-third.

Stomach trouble is but a symptom of. and not
fn itself a true disease. We think of Dyspepsia.
Heartburn, and Indigestion as real diseases. yet
they are symptoms only of a certain specific
Nerve sickness—nothing else.
It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Shoop
Jn the creation of that now very popular Stomach
Remedy—Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Going direct
to the stomach nerves, alone brought that success
and favor to Dr. Shoop and his Restorative. Without that original and highly vital principle, no
such lasting accomplishments were ever to be had.
For stomach distress, bloating, biliousness, bad
breath and sallow complexion, try Dr. Shoop's
Restorative—Tablets or Liquid—and see for yourself what it can and will do. We sell and cheerfully recommend
Dr.
