THE MASQUERADE BALL.
Large Attendance, Pretty Costumes
and All Bound Good Time.
The grand annual masquerade ball has
again passed into social history and the
general opinion expressed is more than
favorable as to its success. Not a hitch
or flaw in the perfect arrangements and
ihe flow of fun and frolic was unmarred
from the grand inarch to the last strain
of an ecstatic home waltz. The Ladies
Hospital Auxiliary must be congratulated
on their successful effbrts. The philanthropic nature of the ball appealed to
the public and the hospital will benefit
about $300.
There were about one hundred and fifty
couples in attendance, many coming from
outside points. The costumes were the
prettiest and in some instances the most
striking and appropriate ever observed
in Princeton. The music was fully up to
standard and the supper was both choice
aid satisfying.
Star would have been pleased to publish the names and costumes of maskers
but as only four availed themselves of the
usual practice to deposit their cards it
will be impossible to do so. In the
opinion of many the ball was an unqualified success and creditable to all concerned.
From Granite Creek, Coalmont and
Tulameen came many visitors among
whom were Miss Fraser, Miss McQueen,
Mr. and Mrs. Marcotte, Messrs. Tingley,
Dickson, Holmes and Henderson.
Mrs. Daly, Miss Daly, Miss Cortigan,
Geo. M. Alii on and Maurice Daly of
Keremeos were at the masquerade ball
and enjoyed it very mnch.
Mrs Sproule, Mrs. Whillans, Mr.
Hincks, Mr. McLean and Mr. Dollemore
were among those attending the masquerade ball from Hedley.

DIXIE JUBILEE SINGERS.
The entertainment given by the Dixie
Jubilee Singers last evening wasxjne of
the most enjoyable of its class that was
ever given here. Negro songs and tnel
odies are always a pleasure to hear, \ hen
*ell rendered, and it is certain that too
ntycind criticism was heard of the selections last evening. The members of the
company are all clever, and each per-\
formed their part so well it would be difficult to make a distinction. Every
number was thoroughly enjoyed by the
large throng of music lovers in attendance, and the program was sufficiently
varied to please the grave and the g"a*
alike. The program lasted more than
two hours, and as the large audience
which completely filled the opera house
passed out, nothing but words of praise
were heard of the singers and of the society for bringing them here.—Grand
Forks, N- D., Herald. The Dixies come

Holiday Festivities and Entertainment
Enliven Social Season.
On the arrival of two teams from
Princeton on Saturday afternoon last
witn Mr. Craig, Mr. Hunter and the Rev.
J. Williams one could not help thinking
that something unusual was about to take
place. It was, of course, the Christmas
entertainment which was to be held in
Mr.Parrish's bouse in the evening
Miss Fraser opened the entertainment
:with a few racy selections en the piano.
Mr. Craig, who was in the chair, kept the
audience in roars of laughter with some
good stories, in the short intervals between the various items on the program.
In the first half of the program special
mention must be made of the play in two
acts entitled 'Mrs. Ruggles.' This piece
was screamingly funny from beginning
to end and the role of Mrs. Ruggles was
splendidly acted by Miss Grace Johnston.
In the second half special notice was
taken of the minuet danced by Tom
Holmes and Miss Edna Hoitnes and a
song by Miss Ina Boyd. At the conclusion of the program Mr. Craig called
upon Mr. Williams to say a few words.
Mr. Williams who spoke at some length
was unfortunately interrupted by the
coming of Santa Claus, the sleigh bells
being distinctly heard, and in a minute
or two Santa made his appearance amid
great excitement/especially among the
children. Af_jr all the presents had been
distributed, Mr. Craig then called upon
Mr. Fraser for a few remarks. Mr.
Fraser in the course of his speech said
how pleased he was to be present and
thanked all the ladies and gentlemen who
had helped to make the evening such a
success. H2 also proposed a vote of
thanks to Mr. Ciaig who had occupied
the chair in such an able manner, Miss
McQueen who had taken such great
pains in training the children to such a
degree of efficiency and to Mrs. Hall and
Miss Johnston. W. T. Smart also spoke
and testified as to the splendid performance. Then 'God Save The King' finished off the entertainment which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The various
piano accompaniments were carried out
with taste by Mrs. Pendergast and Miss
McQueen. The programs were beautifully designed by G. H. Dickson. The
piano was kindly lent by J. T. Johnston
who returned from Winnipeg in the
yening and just in   time for the   per-
rmance.
Miss McQueen left for Princeton with
Mr, Hubter on Sunday morning to speud
the Christmas vacation.
H. Martin of Vancouver has accepted
a position with Mr. McTavish, merchant.

SCIENCE AND INVENTION
Lignite Briquette Exberiments.-
The Bnreau of Mines, realizing the value
of the vast deposits of lignite which' exists in several western states, and particularly in North and South Dakota, Montana and Texas, recently obtained from
Germany a powerful briquette machine,
whieh is being used.to determine the
suitability of American lignites for the
manufacture of Briquettes. The experimental work so far done has shown that
lignite can be made into satisfactory
briquettes at a cost that renders the manufacture commercially profitable. The
extended use of lignite briquettes would
serve as an important factor in the conservation of our supplies of coal.
Sterilized Post Holes.—An  engineer in Budapest  has invented a process
for the preservation of wood which bids
fair to much economic importance.    The
process is intended to be applied to wood,
used  in out  door construction —
railroad ties, telegraph poles, fenct
isades   and   the  like.   It   consists in _i!
sterilization of the surrounding soil  by
means of a liquid poured into the  hole
in   the  earth before  the  post or  tie is-
planted.      The   liquid   is   composed   of
chemicals  which effectually  destroy all
insect life and all cryptogamous vegetation in the surrounding earth     According to La Revue this prevents the rotting;
of  the   wood  without the   necessity   of/
treating.it  with creosote, so   that  both
time   and  expense are   saved   in  many
oases. psy*

of convincing the Harvard faculty of his
ability to talk with animals. His life has

—ftKE OLD AND NEW YEA__S7~
A cotnprehehensive review of the
'year just passed away is more thau
Star can undertake with its limited
space  and  limited   knowledge,  its
humble  attempt  being  made with
the .object  of reviving  interest   in
the great  natural wealth of Princeton  and  district  and  in directing
attention  to  some outstanding fea-
,'tures of world progress.    Not since
Princeton  was a mere 'babe in the
woods,' when  goldhunters  flocked^
j to the  new  el  dorado, has  such a
..arge influx of people  taken  place
as during the old year, 1911.    The
new year  gives  promise already of
a still  larger  immigration  and by
.the close of 1912 there is good reason to believe that  population will
have  easily  doubled.    Two causes
chiefly contribute to this prediction :
Sicv«A-i§stbe  large  number of inqui-
^___T abroad   as  to the natural
xisources  and  business chances in
ind about the town,  .nd  the other
is the general development in hand
■and to be undertaken  in the spring
and summer.
Much  depends  on   railroad con*
struction, continuous and with reasonable   celerity.      If   the    Great
lNorthern  and    C.P.R.   companies
^a_nply  with  the    terms  of   their
harters,   and  both   the Dominion
J   Provincial    governments  will
_rge them to do so, many  miles  of
new line  will  be  built  this year,
Mhiis bringing new country into the
fzpne  of^evelopment.    Settlers are
I ready  to  take  up  the   remaining
||hinds  contiguous  to  the railways,
fining    companies    are   patiently
^^for  transportation   and the
nstruction   of   a  smelter   binges:
\n   railroad    extension.      The
y_3iness   prospects    ot    Princeton
''ere never brighter*ajgffl the volume
JRra.de may be expected to double
bis  year  as  in last.    The  stores
nd hotels have been taxed to their
\>acity limits   and enlargement is
\Erogram.    Busiiress  and   resi-
1 buildings are projected and
/late is  advancing.    Without
deration 6r|high  colored word
■fitting it will thus  be seen  that
j.e  future  is unquestionably   roseate.'
East Princeton, in no sense a rival
_f the parent town, is included in
.his prosperous   foijeeast.     It has
___i _»_^_&>- --i-Hi*' _H_fi_
merits peculiarly its own, having
all the raw materials for a large
manufacturing industry, the East
Princeton Portland Cement works.
The laying of a spur from the main
line of the V.,V. & E. to the works'
is nearly complete and soon the
wheelsolrt__s great plant may be
expected to revolve. Families of
skilled workmen will make their
homes here, aud the large payroll
will sustain the population for a
modern and progressive town.
Whatever is gain to East Princeton
is bound to contribute to the general welfare of the district. Hence,
it would be suicidal for any individual or community to attempt
knocking methods or discourage^
ment of any kind. United effort
bent toward the common goal of
Sniffling an incorporated town under one rule and civic government
is the only system, the only method
of attaining results commensurate
with our vast mineral and other
sources of natural wealth.
It is an old story to many readers
how Princeton proper has grown in
face of many obstacles, political and
physical. How the railway was
dangled in the air for years in the
pastime of political seesaw, and
then when construction did begin
its tardiness turned the hope and
ambitions of men into despair.
Both representatives in the legislatures at Ottawa and Victoria are in
accord with the people regarding
early completion of both the V.,V.
& E. and K.V. railways. In 1912
both these main lines will be pushed
on to their destination. Important railway legislation has been
foreshadowed by the premier of the
province, and this in connection
with the building of the transprovincial automobile road means so
much for this district and the whole
province. The Princeton Coal &
Land Co. is engaged in additions
and developments to their plant and
mine which will more than double
the capacity. Their forward policy
is certain to enhance still more and
more the value of their immense
coal deposits and the townsite of
Princeton, the latter an asset of
the company which is bound to
be wealth producing with the increase in population.
So iapid are the advances and
discoveries of science that within
the past year a volume would be
necessary to even touch upon. The
corpuscular theory of matter, aeronautics, wireless telegraphy, astro-
physical research, all open up a
wonderful field for investigation.
In divine science or the realms of
of spirit the revelations and discovers, a woman who passed away a
year ago have annulled the faith of
many, including doctors, in the
theory and practice of rredieine,
demonstrating an all-curative power
over sin and its concomitant, dis-
:as8J. ;r That there is an ever present

FOR
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LAND5 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 reduction works and several hundred employees. 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 investment.    Get full particulars, immediately.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
spirituai power now at work uplifting mankind into a sphere of
peace and happiness, far removed
from the grovelling pleasures of the
world, the fleshly senses, abundant
testimony is found in the practical
experience of thousands who have
been cured when all other remedies
failed. This science is the most
inviting study the world has ever
known, leading as it does to the
very origin of all things and its
truth may be demonstrated by the
humble fisherman or whosoever'
will.
Canada, star of Empire, has been
and is destined to be, the Mecca of
millions looking for homes. It is
now passing through, a period of
marvellous expansion and progres?.
She is no longer a dependency or
colony but a nation within an empire, of age, and like the full grown
son, ambitious to test her ability in
the fields of commerce, athletics
and education. A statesman has
said ' the twentieth century belongs
to Canada.' His vision, no doubt,
was inspired by the growth observed everywhere. He could as
truthfully added other centuries.
Advance, Canada !

The Town ol opportunity
The rails have been   laid   into  the town and Coalmont is now the new
terroinus,   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 opportnnily  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 lot_ left
Two b|pcks from the centre of ^own at only

THii    51 MILK. A ME EN    _TAR
FOBESTRY CONVENTION.
Those interested in forest protection
will gather in Ottawa on Feb. 7th and
3th, 1912, at the Dominion Convention
of the Canadian Forestry Association.
H. R. H. the Governor General, takes
great interest in this subject, and the
Convention will be held under his
auspices. The members of the government and the Parliamentary leaders on
both sides are furthering the arrange
tnents and the railways have granted
special rates.
An unfounded impression prevails in
some quarters that lumbermen-are opposed to forest conservation. That this
is wrong is shown both by the fact that a
number of the past presidents of the
Forestry Association are lumbermen, and
bv a further fact that this year tbe Canadian Lumbermen's Association will
meet in Ottawa on Feb. 5th, and the
members will join in the work of the
Convention and in the banquet to be
held on the evening of Feb 7th.
A nutubei of distinguished men from-
the United States as well as from Canada
have promised to attend and the program
so far arr arranged sh _>ws that the emphasis will be placed on the practical
side.
The Sscrectary of the Canadian Forestry Association, whose office is in the
Canadian Building, Ottawa, is now engaged in concluding the details and from
him any further information desired may
be obtained.
