The dance given at the Hotel Otttr
Flat, Tulameen City, by the genial host
W. J, Henderson, on Friu2_v evening last
was pronounced a great success by the
large number of guests who were fortun
a'te enough to attend. The music was
good, refreshments ample and appetizing and the floor O. K. Mr. and Mrs
Henderson are to be congratulated on
the excellent evening's enjoymeut which
they provided. Ever\ one present will long
remember (he occasion as one of the
merriest in their experience.
W. Thomas will sh >rtly commence the
erection of a business block just west of
Princeton Hotel.

MINING NOTES
J. E. McCauley has made a payment
on the Reco fractional mineral claim, the
local parties benefitting thereby being
Messrs, C. Willarson, P. Johnson, and J.
Crowley.
Reports from Tulameen say that another 7-foot seam of coking coal has been
struck at Collins Gulch.
The Dominion Copper Company will
hold its annual meeting in Phoenix on
Monday. January 27th, when the annual
report will be made. This company
ceased operations in October last on account of the high operating costs and the
low prices of copper, but it is now reported that they are about to resume op
eratiohs on an extensive scale.
Decide   to Purchase   Bell for
Alarm and Other Public
Purposes. •
Will Receive Aid from the Board of
Trade and Will Give Ball
Feb 5th.
There was an .unusually large turnout
at a meeting of the Princeton Fire Bri-
grde on Monday evening last with Chief
J. R. Campbell in the chair. The principal business on hand was the arranging
for the aunual firemen's ball, which is to
be held on Wednesday, February 5th.
Committees were appointed to look after
the different details and it is safe to predict that the fire laddies will do themselves proud on this occasion as they
have in the past.
' A= the procee Is will be devoted to the
woity cause of assisting in purchasing a
mucii needed fire bell (and it can be used
lor other puiposes also) it is to be hoped
the public generally will materially assist to this end by purchasing the price
of admittanoe, which is only $2. The
secretary, H. Cowan, will thankfully receive donations in the way of cake, etc.,
and as no personal canvass will be made
for these you will confer a favor by notifying the secretary a lew days beforehand
what your contribution will be.
A resolution was unanimously passed
asking the Boark of Trade to appropriate
a sum of money to assist in raising a bell
mnd, which will most likely be done at
the Board's next meeting. This will be
bj a move in the right direction and one
that isdese.ving of support.
Remember the d-tte, February 5th, and
djn't make any other engagement for
that night.
D0X0L0GY OF  THE DOG.
One aigument in favor of having
Princeton incorporated is that some steps
could be taken to regulate this doggone
dog nuisance that is infesting the town
at present. There are more woithles-,
canines to the squaie inch in Princeu n
than most places can boast of, and it is
about t.me something was done to prevent them taking complete charge of af
fairs. Dcgs to tlie right of you, dogs to
the left of you, dogs all around vou,
make the night hideous with their tales
of woe, disturbing the peaceful slumbeis
of those who seek rest from the business
worries of the day. When a dog sits
himself down under your chamber win-
daw and raises his voice to heaven in a
sort of falsetto key you have feelings
that wouldn't look good translated into
English. Multiply this dog by several
and you have a fair idea of what happens
most any night in this otherwise peaceful
town.
THE DAWN OF HOPE
Activity in Real Estate at Hope
Results from Railway-
Construction.
Revising the Located Line from Hope
East Via Coquihalla Pass of
Mountains.
What apparently is a well founded
report comes through private sources
from Hope regarding the V.,V. & E.
railway construction. It is asserted that
a considerable amount of real estate has
been sold recently at greatly advanced
prices, due to the activity in railway
construction. A well known Great
Northern official has been purchasing
some eligible property in the vicinity of
Hope and two important sales of business locations are included in several
rother minor transactions. Formerly an
old Indian trading post of the Hudsons
Bay Co., Hope now seems to be awakening after about a century's sleep.
Engineer Tracy of the V., V. & E-,
who located poriions of the line in the
Similkameen is now at work revising the
line eastward from Hone via Coquihalla
Pass preparatory to actual building. He
is under instructions to push the work.
Construction will begin in the early
spring.
The suspension of work on the coast
poition of the V.,V. & E-. caused by the
trouble with contractors, has now been
resumed under the direct control of the
Great Northern Railwa)', and construction is going on apace, day by day reducing the distance from there to Princeton, drawing nearer the time when Jim
Hill's iron horse will afford that much
delayed and long looked for trip by trail
to the coast.
" THREE-STORIED MAN."
Sixth in Series of Lectures Maintains
Usual High Standard.
The usual fortnightly lecture was delivered on Monday evening by the Rev.
J. T. Conn, the subject being "The Three
Storied Man." The rev. lecturer showed
how man was built on three levels and
the importance of each level receiving
its own due consideration. The Physical,
where we eat and drink, was the first
level to come under examination. The
body we receive from our parents and
therefore it is of the first importance that
our children receive a fair, unfettered
start in life ; the value of a healthy ancestry cannot be too much advocated in
the life of today.
The personal supervision of one's own
body is conducive to one's own health
and happiness. Wholesome food, attention  to  digestion  (the   first process of
which takes place in the mouth) regulation of all meals, good exercise, fresh air
and good sanitary conditions. Know
thyself, what you are, what you can do;
be master of, not mastered by your
body.
The' Intellectual—wheae we read and
think, was the next to come under review.
The dawn of mind as seen in the child,,
up to the importance of the training of
the eye and ear as tne only two avenues-
to the mind, were traced. The cultivation of a taste for good and wholesome-
literature, the selecting of good and pure-
companions were of vital importance to-
those who were anxious to possess and
maintain a pure and healthy mind, which
are essential for personal and intellectual
power.
The last level to be discussed was the
Spiritual, where we pray and love. It
was shown that man was supremely a
spiritual being, therefore, his congenial
sphere was God's presence, and the company of all who worship in spirit and in
truth. Prayer is the soul in communion,
with God, the deeper and truer that communion the stronger and purer will be
the life among men. The influence of
all such upon the world will ever be of a
most invigorating nature, and just as we
trace all light to the sun, so we trace love
to God. The greatness of love is best
seen in the life of our Lord. So let us-
give our children as clean and fair a start
in life as we can by transmitting and
giving to them healthy bodies. Let us-
see that the mind is well trained and our
soul not denied that season of communion with God which alone can give-
strength.
The next lecture will be delivered on.
Friday, the 31st inst., the subject on this-
occasion being "The Ministry, Its Nature, It's Work and It's Reward."
COST OF ROYAL MINT.
According to returns brought down in
the House of Commons last week, the total cost of the Royal Mint at Ottawa up-
to November 30th was $492,953. The
site cost $21,150, the building proper
$286,836, and the equipment $94,967. It
is estimated that the further sum of $94,-
000 will be required to complete the establishment, making the cost nearly half
a million dollars. The staff of the establishment numbers 72. All appointments-
have been made by the Imperial authorities. Xne profit on copper and silver
coinage made at the Royal Mint in England for Canada during the past ten years
was $3,007,973. It is estimated that for
the current year Canada will require copper coins to the value of about $50,000
and a silver coinage to the value of $700,-
000.
Frank Gotch, the American champion
wrestler, and George Hackenschmidt,.
styled the "Russian Lion," are matched
to meet for the championship of the
world in April at Cchicago. It should be.-
a great struggle.

ject of justifiable complaints.
The Star is not inclined at present to blame anyone in particular
for the lack of proper telephone accommodation in Princeton. It is
the result of a defective system and
no doubt, will be remedied.
Consistently, the Star has advocated the location of all federal government offices and positions in
Princeton under one manager, separate and distinct from any business
institution or influence. It was
hastened to this conclusion by the
•representations of merchants and
others who averred that it was prejudicial   to   their   interests to have
public   offices    located    in   stores.

2 If the father (or mother, if. the fath

politics the above opinion will have
much weight, if not wholly endorsed. As governments • move

in all probability, to carry out all
the improvements necessary.

Comparing Johnson and Burns.
The sports of Toronto had a chance
tjie other day to get a line on Jack Johnson, the big negro pug, when he boxed
in that city with Robert Day. Johnson
showed fair punching power and plentv
of aggressiveness and gameness. His
guarding and warding and rushing are
described as near perfect as possible.
His weak point, however, seemed to be
slow foot work, and that's the point that
will give Tommy Burns the advantage
when these too meet. Burns is great at
fiot work, probably the best in the
game today, and he will certainly make
the big negro step around when he gets
at him.
Strongest Man in B. C.
The police of Vancouver are authorily
for the statement that Jack McArthur, a
logger, is the strongest man in Britith
Columbia. A few days McArthur visited
Vancouver and after taking on a cargo ol
' joyful" proceeded to "do" the town.
When a policeman endeavored to place
i he strong arm of the law en hitn, the big
logger objected and the policeman hit
ihe pavement. Then a whole squad of
cops appeared on the scene, and Mc-
Arthu sailed inio the bunch, knocking
I hem right and left. The police finally
clubbed him into submission and even
after shackles had been placed on his
bonds he gave them the time of thur
lives.

. When the stomach, heart, or kidney
nerves get weak, then these organs always fail. Don't drug the stomach, nor
stimulate the heart or kidneys. That is
simply a makeshift. Get a prescription
known to druggists everywhere as Dr.
Shoop's Restorative. The Restorative is
prepared expressively for these weak inside nerves. Strengthen the^e nerves,
build them up with Dr. Shoop's Restorative—tablets or liquid—and see how
quickly help will come. Free sample
test sent on request by Dr. Shoop, Racine, Wis. Your health is surely worth
this simple test. Sold by J. R. Campbell.
To check a cold quicklv, get from your
druggist some little candy cold tablets
called Preventics. Druggists everv where
are now dispensing Preventics, for they
are not only safe, but decidedly certain
and prompt. Preventics contain no
quinine, no laxative, nothing harsh nor
sickening. Taken at the "sneeze stage"
Preventics will prevent pneumonia, bronchitis, la grippe, etc. Hence the name,
Preventics. Good for feverish children,
48 Preventics 75 cents. Trial boxes 5 cts.
Sold by J. R. Campbell.
Trial catarrh] treatments are being
mailed out free, on request, by Dr. Shoop,

Shoop's catarrh remedy. Sold by J. R.

SMILES.
Mrs. Wicks—Everywhere we go now
we have to walk, but when we were eu»
gaged you always called a carriage.
Mr. Wicks—That's why we have to
walk now.
He—Young girls always want to marry
for love, but when they grow  older they
want to marry aiuan with money.
, She—You're wrong.   They don't grow
older ; they merely grow wiser.
Cook—A fellow spends a lot of money
for Christmas presents, and what has he
to show for it ?
Hook—Pawn tickets usually.
Here 's a nice package of advice handed out by a Kansas paper : "Don't judge
a man by his elothes, God made one and
the tailor made made the other. Don't
judge a man by his family, for Cain belonged to a good family. Don't judge a
man for his failure in Jl'fe, for many a
man fails because he is too honest to succeed with worldly success and has not the
heart to "short-change" and otherwise
rob. Don't judge a man by the house he
lives in, for the lizard and the rat often
inhabit the grandest structures. When
a man dies they who survive him ask
what property there is left behind and
the angel who bends over him asks what
good deeds he has sent before him."
