GRANBY PROFITS
A MILLION
MINES  AND MINING
Advices from New York state that the
preliminary report of the Granby Smelting company for the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1913, show that profits from the
Grand Forks smelter and the Phoenix
mines amounted to $1,207,661 of which
the sum of $449,955 was disbursed to
shareholders since dividend payments
were resumed recently.
Sam Spencer came down from  his silver-lead property at Whipsaw   on   Wednesday.   He has been doing considerable
development work and the showings are
-fine.
A system of time keeping and a check
on the men working iu the mine will do
much to assure the safety of the workers.
At a very small expense a system can be
installed whereby a gatekeeper will issue
checks to the men as they enter the
workings, the men returning them when
they leave. A glance at the check-board
will then show whether all the men on a
given shift have left the mine. If the
hoard shows that one man is still in the
mine, an investigating party can-be sent
to look for him A system of fines for
failure to return checks will force the
men to follow any regulations laid down
in this connection. Besides the checks,
lists should also be kept showihg in what
part of the mine each man is working.
In order to prevent any shortage of
coal during the months that railway cars
will be in use for hauling the grain crop
W. P. Tierney has just arranged for the
shipment to Nelson of 50 carloads of Gait
coal from Lethbridge. Some of the coal
will arrive next week, it is expected, and
the contract made by Mr. Tierney calls
for the delivery of the whole consignment
by Oct. 15.
W. J Mitchell, diamond drill contractor for the B. C. Copper Co. on Copper
Mountain, arrived from Spokane on
Thursday.
LABOR DAY
From all accounts the celebration last
Monday at Hedley was a complete success and the Miners' Union is to be congratulated upon the thorough way in
which everything was arranged and carried out. Large unmbers of Princeton
people attended.
One of the main events, certainly the
most interesting, was the drilling contest of which Anderson and Sebla were
the winners with a depth of 34% inches,
while a depth of 31 1 32 inches gave the
second money to Trewelah  and   Holver-
seth. McEachren Bros, came third with
31 21-32 inches, next Hamilton and Lid-
dicoate with 30 11-16 inches. Beam and
Lvon who were the first to drill went
down 30 9-16 inches.
The lacrosse game resulted in a score
of 4 2 in favor of Keremeos and some
good play was seen. In baseball Princeton beat the Indians by 16-3 but lost to
Hedley by a score of 18 4.
The football match attracted a number
of enthusiastic spectators and resulted in
a win for Hedley by 4-3.
Another important event was the inev
itable dance on the evening of the first
day. Both floor and music received tbe
unanimous approval of the many couples
and the dainty refreshments served, in
conjunction with pretty and tasteful decorations, will make the occasion a memorable one in the terpsichorean annals of
Hedley.

Artificial floorings are now being made
out of sawdust concrete. The cement
used consists of a solution of magnesium
cloridc to which pulverized magnesia is
added. The sawdust is then used in any
desired quantityi Floors manufactured
in this way are more resilient than con
crete, and are not good conductors of
heat. They wear well, and do not burn,
charring under the fire test.
RAILWAY POINTS.
The annual report ofthe C. P. R.- president states that: 'It is not the intention
of your directors to proceed with the second track in the more difficult sections
along the Thompson and Fraser rivers
until your Kettle Valley line is ready for
traffic between Midway and Hope, in
1915, so that you may have an alternative
route between Medicine Hat aud Vancouver via the Crow's Nest pass if anything unforeseen should occur during the
prosecution of the double track work to
obstruct traffic on the main line,' The
statement calls attention to the fact that
the mileage covered by the statement of
gross earnings and working expenses has
increased from 10,983 miles in 1912 to
11,602 miles in 1913.
is very difficult for us to undertake a new
thing or grow a new crop, even though
we know from the experience of others
that it is profitable. We are inclined to
go along in the old way. We need jog-.
ging to awaken us to the great opportunities around us. We see others growing-
alfalfa and making tuoney, but we fail to
profit by experience.
'A. P. Grout, of Winchester, Illinois,
who has grown alfalfa for twenty years,
says: 'Alfalfa will pay 6 per cent, interest
on $1,000 an acre land; it is equal to
wheat bran as stock feed, one acre of alfalfa is equal to six acres of timothy;
where corn will net $15.80 per acre, alfalfa will net $50 per acre. Every far-
mar should grow some alfalfa..
THE VALLEY OF SUNSHINE
Frank Bailey, M. E , has always been
a firm believer in the possibilities and
potentialities ofthe Similkameen, Nicola
and Tulameen districts; and knows these
probably better than any other resident.
He is the author of a descriptive pamphlet of about one hundred pages cover
ing these districts which he is now distributing to subscribers and the board of
trade. The matter is fully descriptive of
the marvelous sections treated and the illustrations afford an accurate idea of the
localities and their products. Asa means
of publicity the 'Valley of Sunshine'
should meet with a large demand from
all having interests in the country.
OBITUARY
The passing away of young Bruce McLean, following an operation for appendicitis, in.the hospital, occurred Wednesday morning. Jtishad been ill less than
a week. A bright and only son of twelve
years, sunny and playful, his schoolmates
will miss him very much. The parents,
Mr. and Mrs. W. C. McLean, have the
sympathy of everyone in which Star sin -
sincerely joins. The funeral on Thursday was largely attended, the obsequies
being conducted by the Rev. J. A Gil-.,

Spokane, Wash., Sept. 3.—'Alfalfa will

states Professor Perry G. Ho'clen, the famous Iowa agriculturist, who will head a

Harvesting operations are under way

crop througnout the province will be the
greatest ever gathered. Its farm value
is placed at from fifty-three to fifty-five

one million dollars in 1912. The three
transcontinental railroads operating in
this district have completed arrangements to supply sufficient equipment to
move the crops without delay.

One of the gravest problems confronting Great Britain is the decrease in the
birth rate. Between 1871 and 1912 it fell
from 33.8 per thousand to 24 per thou.

The attendance at the public school indicates a flourishing condition. During
Miss Moore's term so far the number of
pupils in actual attendance is 18, of whom
12 are boys and 6 girls.
It was placer mining which first drew
the attention of gold-hunters from all
parts of the world to the Similkameen.
As high as $roo a day with primitive ap-
pliances was cleaned up by men who are
still living here. The rivers and their
tributaries offer an excellent field for investigation and the probable operation of
a big gold dredger.
Frank Bailey, in company with Thos.
Rabbitt, has located five free milling gold

There was a row in the zoo the other
day between the bob-tailed lynx and a
yaller canine. In trying to separate
them Tuck, the Jackson hotel hypnotist,
got a surprise from the lynx's right
which started the 'claret' to flow freely.

A large and commodious out structure,
also a handy coal bin will serve to make

The following resolution was introduced and carried at the board of trade
meeting: Resolved^Chat the boards of
trade in the Yale-Cariboo parliamentary
division be reapectfully invited to co-operate with the Princeton board in urging
upon the Dominion government the necessity for a teleohone lihe to link the
Similkameen with the outside world.
According to the election returns five
Conservatives were elected in Vancouver
with appalling majorities. 'Fighting

often and received a belly blow which, it
is hoped may retire him for life.
STRINGENCY PASSING AWAY
Ottawa, Sept. 1.—Hon. W. T. White
has returned from a holiday trip to the
old country. He was quite optimistic
over the financial outlook and confident
that tight money is about over. He regards the cessation of the Balkan war as
the most potential factor towaids a more
hopeful adjustment of financial conditions. The British attitude, he said, is at
present much more favorable to Canadian
investments than it was a few weeks ago.
There existed almost a prejudices against
Canadian securities. There were many
causes. One was the general situation,
another was the fact that much English
money had been lost in Canadian wildcat
schemes. The company promoter as far
as England is concerned, he said, is dead
for a long time to come.
Mr. White gave^two reasons for the
present stringency; One was the unprecedented demand for capital from all
parts of the world. The'other was the
Balkan war and the fear of a general
conflagration. ■ Referring to municipal
securities Mr. White said that it was understood in London that these debentures
of the principal cities were thoroughly
sound. There has befcn an unfortunate
congestion in London. This is clearing
up and he predicted an improvement
ahead. Mr. White expects to take a trip
to the prairie provinces in October.

THE NEWSPAPER
Newspapers, like every other
business and profession, pass
through the ordeal of adverse criticism. Many a one has dragged
through a. miserable existence, at
last finding rest from turmoil and
discouragement in the journalistic
boneyard. But it ite the survival of
the fittest,- those who have set for
themselves a certain task and high
ideal, who unswervingly adhere to
the right, that eventually make
good and are crowned with success.
To falter because of the whining
criticism of nonentities is to admit
error and lack of ability. The
newspaper which strives to be educative and informative and endeavors to maintain a high standard of-ethics will always meet with
. opposition from those who are shallow and low in moral and intellectual status. The rehearsal of crime
and sensational immorality by the
yellow press does not make for the
advancement or uplift or readers.
A nation or community feeding on
the husks and not the kernel of
wholesome news will soon degenerate to barbaric habits and fashions.
The heathen in former days
would burn incense to the god Nicotine blowing the aromatic smoke
through his nose; he quaffed to
Bacchus and resorted to all sorts
of stimuli to keep up the pace.
Are the heathen of today improving
on their forefathers? These are the
critics who usually denounce every
effort toward moral and social improvement, who have no religion
and much prefer the sensual novel
to wholesome literature, their prayer book or bible. They stand afar
off and criticize, praying in their
hearts as the old Pharisee, seeing
heinous faults in others but observing none in themselves with tbe
smug complacency of all hypocrites.
Another class of newspaper critics are those who never subscribe
but beg borrow or steal their news
out of papers they do not pay for.
If they do subscribe they are always
delinquent, and find fault with the
news be it local or editorial. They
want the latest scandal, prizefight,
_nd the minutest detail ofthe flight
of a millionaire maniac.    Every re
sident of a community has a duly to
perform in patronizing the local
newspaper, for without one is to be
away in the rear of the age—back it
not only with the price per year or
ad. but back it with your sentiment
in every worthy cause and it will
repay a hundredfold.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Lord Haldane told the newspaper
reporters of Montreal that he was
in favor of votes for women. This
from the first jurist in "the empire
ought to silence the hoboes who
have no regard for the rights of
women.
All this verbiage about army and
navy and its relationship to imperialism; the question of contribution
and emergency, and solidifying the
empire, all could be settled in a
twinkling if John Bull would take
his sons into full partnership with
him. If the growing boys across
the seas contribute money and ships
they ought to have some voice in
the disposition of them. Taxation
without representation will drive
the colonies away instead of attract.
'John Bull & Sons' sounds like a
partnership of equality in which all
the members of the firm have an
abiding interest. No other way,
John, and the sooner you do it the
better for all concerned.        \
It is pleasant to read about the
peace palace at the Hague being
dedicated to a noble cause. It has
a huge task to be accomplished
within its walls. If it will only
abate or stop the navy building
craze and disarm Europe it will
have done a mighty work toward
universal peace. There should be
peace societies in every city and
town and the churches should inculcate the spirit of peace by frequent s.rmons.
One effect of the money stringency is to defer deals that have been
months coming to the present stage
of consummation. The Star can
speak feelingly in this matter but
hopes soon to feel the quickening
touch of cash and the necessary
transfer documents.
Secretary ot State Bryan's peace
plans have been adopted by the
parliamentary council at the Hague.
Universal peace and disarmament
are sure to come if the jingoes will
abandon their 'insensate" policy. '
So far the negotiations for settling the troubles of Mexico have
been conducted with entire credit to
' Woodrow.' Star would like to see
that rascal Castro dealt with by U.S.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Virrually there is no difference between a grafter and a highway robber—
both gravitate toward the 'pen' and if
spared will eventually reach this home of
the crooked.
Nothing comes by chance in this world
—all things take place by and through
immutable law.
Put into your life faith in "God, hope,
truth, love and you will take out happiness, health, prosperity and eternal life.
When you get into a tight place and
everything goes against yon, till it seems
you could not hold on a minute longer,
never give up then, for that's just the
place and the time that the tide'll turn.—
Harriet Beecher Stowe.
The ultra-critical person knocks everything that does not originate in his brain
—they are to be pitied.
Flattery is the tool of a false friend—
praise comes from the heart and is always
helpful and encouraging" Never withhold merited praise.
The person too proud to confess faults
cannot progress along right lines. Humility is one of the most likeable qualities
in a man.
Fear, doubt, malice, hatred, envy, lying, pride, ambition, covelousness' impurity, intemperance, all breed disease.
Wholesome thoughts: wholesome body.
A breath of prayer in the morning and
the morning life is sure. A breath of
prayer in the evening, and the evening
blessing comes. So our life is redeemed
from destruction.—Drummond.
The perfect spiritual life must produce
perfect physique, health. The great Exemplar suffered no bodily ills or pains,
therefore never turned to materia medica.
NEW WESTMINSTER FAIR
Leading the way for fairs in Western
Canada the management of the provincial
exhibition, which opens in New Westminster on September 30th and continues until October 4th, have this year of
fered the grand total of $60,000 in prizes
and attractions. Preparations have been
proceeding apace and Manager D. E.
MacKenzie is daily in receipt of entries
for the various departments. Numerous
improvements have been and many of
the prizes increased, in addition to a
large number of new classes in the different divisions.
A record for attendance was established
during 1912 when over 60,000 people at
tended during the five days, but it is predicted that all records Twill be broken
this year.
The free attractions will prove a great
drawing card and no trouble or expense
is being spared to make this feature a
success. They will be staged in front of
the grandstand. The provincial exhibition held in New Westminster, apart
from the fun and amusement provided, is
considered the largest and most extensive truly agricultural exhibition in the
province and the agricultural building in
which the district exhibits are displayed
in competition for the famous Dewar
trophy and the $3000 cash prizes .ar.e
worth coming many miles to see.
All entries close on September 20.

THE OLD FASHIONED BOT
' Oh, for a glimpse of a natnral boy—
A boy with a freckled face,
With forehead white 'neath tangled hair,
And limbs devoid of grace.
Whose feet tee in while his elbows flare,
Whose knees are patched always,
Who turns as red as a lobster when
Yon give him a word of praise.
A boy who's born with an appetite,
Who seeks the pantry shelf
To eat his 'piece' with resounding smack,
Who isn't bone on himself.
A Robinson Crusoe reading boy,
Whose pockets bulge out with trash,
Who knows the use of rod and gun
And where the brook trout splash.
It's true he'll sit in the easiest chair
With his hat on his tousled head,
That his hands and feet are everywhere,
For youth must have room  to spread.
But he doesn't dub his father 'old man'
Nor deny his mother(s call.
Nor ridicule what his elders say,
Or think that he knows it all.
A rough and wholesome natural boy,
Of good old-fashioned clay—
God bless him if he is still on earth,
For he'll make a man some day.
•OUE TOWN' NOT 'THE TOWN'
Do you take a pride in your town? In
speaking of it and working for it, do you
say 'our town?'
When you sav 'our town' the expression has a different meaning from what
it does when you say 'the town,' 'this
town' or 'your town.'
In speaking of our town make every
word mean confidence, loyalty, prosperity, welcome, and we will have a town
that exhibits all these.
