SMALLPOX
There are a few cases of smallpox
in B. C. and the state of Washington
and the authorities are taking the
usual steps to prevent its spread. At
Oroville there are four cases, six at
Molson and ten at Loomis. Mr. and
Mrs. Crooker and Miss Bromley of
-Keremeos have been quarantined. Constable Pritchard is instructed to refuse admission to Princeton of anyone arriving from infested parts who
has not been vaccinated. Dr. Millar
of Victoria has been sent to Keremeos to watch the cases there, who
have been isolated. Dr. White of
Penticton says the present outbreak
is of a very mild type.
The prevention of smallpox by vaccination has been the cause of much
controversy and bitter contention
among medical men and has caused
riots anion y people who were opposed
to the enforcement of it. Like all sa-
called cures and preventatives not
founded on absolute truth and scientific demonstration, vaccination seems
to have had its day and governments
in civilized countries have wisely inserted a conscience clause which anyone may take advantage of. Following are a few extracts bearing on the
treatment of smallpox or any contagious disease and which are taken
from the provincial health law:
Section 7.—The Provincial Board of
Health may make and issue such general rules, orders, and regulations as
the said Board deem necessary for the
prevention, treatment, mitigation, and
suppresion of disease, and may from
time to time alter or repeal any such
rules, orders, and regulations, and
substitute new rules, orders, and regulations, and the said Board may by
such rules, orders, and regulations
provide for and regulate as follows:
Sub. Sec. 9—The isolation or placing in any hospital or building provided for quarantine or isolation purposes of any person having any infectious or contagious disease, or any
disease dangerous to the public health:
Sub. sec. 11—The vaccination of all
children born or residing within the
Province:
Sub. sec. 12.—The vaccination of all
persons entering or residing in the
Province not already vaccinated, or
not sufficiently protected by previous'
vaccination:
Exemption From Taccination
Section 10.—Any regulation made
1 by the Provincial Board, requiring the
-vaccination or revaccination of all
persons resident within the jurisdiction of any Health officer, shall b'e
deemed not to apply to any person
who makes an affidavit or a statutory
declaration before a magistrate or any
other person authorized to take declarations under the "Provincial Elections Act" to the effect that such person conscientiously believes that vaccination would be prejudicial to his
health (or to the health of his' child,
as the case may be), or for conscientious reasons object to vaccination,
and shall deliver or transmit by registered mail to the Health officer of
the district in which he resides a ce&-
tificate by such magistrate or other
official person before -whom the oath
was taken of such conscientious objection.
Section. 11.—The Provncial Board
shall from time to time/ and especially-
during the prevalenc,e/in any part of
the Province of epidemic, endemic, or
contagious disease, make distribution
of such sanitary literature and of
special practical information relating
to the prevention and spread of contagious and infectious diseases,
through the medium of the public
press and by circular to local boards
and health officers, and in and through
the public schools and otherwise, as
shall be deemed by it in the interest
of the public health.
Dr. Fryer, medical health officer^ for
the state of Washington, states there
are 24 cases of smallpox in Okanogan
county. So far, there had been no
deaths in the report of the 29th ult.
The Tulameen hotel has recently
added a detatched sleeping cotfage
containing a number of well furnishr
ed and comfortable sleeping apartments. ~"The accommodation thus
given affords a large increase in the
capacity of the hotel and is sure to
be appreciated by patrons.
Dr. H. B. Cameron, one of the early
pioneers of this section, having been
at Granite in the flourisihng placer
4ays of some fifteen years ago, was
a visitor this week to Princeton. He
is now located at Tulameen and is the
owner of 160 acres of fine farming
land near Stevenson meadows. The
Doctor is in fine health and cheerful
and was kept busy shaking hands
with old and new friends.
NEW ODDFELLOWS HALL
The grand opening ball given by the
Oddfellows in their new hall, corner
of Bride-e' street and Fenchurch avenue, next Friday evening, Nov. 14,
marks a new epoch in the history of
local oddfellowship. In their own
commodious home with the conveniences necessary for the entertainment and comfort of guests, the local
lodge is in a position to cater for
public patronage and guarantee a good
time. The position of the hall is
central and is well lighted from the
outside by the public light on the
corner. The lodge is to be congratulated for the enterprise and foresight
in building a permanent home and in
adding to the assets of the town. The
grand ball will be free to-ladies, admission for gentlemen $2. Good floor
and first class music.
BASKET BALL CLUB
The following election of officers of
the Basket Ball Club was recently
made: President, Miss E. Lyall;
manager, Miss H. Wilns; coach, Miss
M. Knudson; secretary-treasurer, Mrs.
W. T. Joudry. It was decided to begin
practice at once in preparation for a
proposed match with -Hedley.
The Hard Times dance given by
the club last Friday night was both
a social and a financial success, a
large number attending, all entering
into the spirit of the evening. Manyj
striking and original costumes werd
observed. The ladies prize was won
by Mrs. G. Clerf, Tulameen, and the
gentlemens' by W. Kynoch. There
were a number of guests-from Copper
mountain, Coalmont and Tulameen.
A grand masquerade ball will be held
in the Oddlellows' hall on New Year's
Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 31st under the
auspices of the ladies' hospital auxiliary.;

Ivas in town Monday.

RAILWAY POINTS.
Very indefinite and confusing despatches re change of original route of the
Kettle Valley railway between Merritt
and the Okanagan are printed in the
daily press. Judging from the number
of lines already run in the neighborhood
of Princeton it is doubtful if awyone
knows where the route will finally be.
What the people want is action on their
money'with which they„subsidized the
K. V. to the extent of $11,500 per mile.
Tracklaying is proceeding between
Trout creek and Osprey lake ai the rate
of from a halt to a whole mile per day.
This marvellous speed cannot last more
than two months to the end of the g
at Osprey lake aud then some more
will fly I yes fly.
Speaking at   a   meeting recently   S jr
Thomas Shaughnessy said   he   hoped
the see Kettle Valley finished soon. Wh
completed he ssid it would handle  mo
ofthe grain going to Vancouver for ship
ment to Europe via Panama canal.
Construction on the V. V. & E. beyond
Tulameen is said to be going ahead at a
rattling snaillike pace.
Bill and Dan, Jim and Tom are the big
four railway builders in Canada and they
are all knighted but Jim.    Too bad, Jim.

APPETIZING APPLES .|§|
Splendid samples of the Keremeos
apple grown by J. J. Armstrong are
on view in the window of Thomsa
Bros' store. They are the source of
much admiration, not only on account
of their beauty but also of their flavor
and cooking qualities. The sun kissed
Keremeos valley has a very wide reputation as a fruit growing section and
it is bound to be the source of supply
for all the mining camps-of the Similkameen, besides the towns and cities
near and far. See the big golden hued
and rosy apples on,display and be
thankful that life is so much better
and happier in the district where such
'good' old apple sauce' and pie are
among the daily rations.'

OBITUARY
By the death of John T. Swans-
borough on Sunday night last, Nov 2,
one of the earlier residents of Princeton departed this life under circumstances which leave, no c^iibt as to
accidental death throuao drowning.
Those who met Mm^n the evening
noticed a certain strangeness in word
and action but no one thought death
was to overtake him so suddenly. Deceased had on two previous occasions,
while in despondent and demented
mood threatened taking his own life.
Dr. Campbell, on inspection of the body,
found no marks that would lead to
suspicion of violence from another or self
destruction. The doctor is ofthe opinion
that death resulted from internal hemorrhage as the blood bespattered
clothes and surroundings indicated.
Of a courteous and obliging disposition he had many friends. He was a
native of England and had been about
twenty years altogether in Nelson and
Princeton. The funeral was conducted
from the undertaking rooms of D. M.
French and the service was performed
by Rev. G. D. Griffiths.
 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
OPEN MARKETS CHEAPEN GOODS
A   burning  topic   of  today,   is   the
"high   cost  of  living."    While   many
reasons   are   cited   for   the   existing
high priecs of food stuffs, there are
many ways in ^which the dwellers in
towns  and  cities  may economize  in
purchasing supplies for the table. The
majority, of city dwellers today draw
upon the whole world for their food
supply and buy from the retail dealer.
The telephone and delivery wagon entrench  him  in  his  position1.-1   Hence
corner the difficulty often encountered
in   maintaining   a   public   market   in
many of our towns and cities.
A study-of the whole subject of the
public market leads to the conclusion
that it is much more advantageous^to
the city consumer than to the progressive farmer, though there are certain
advantages for the latter, such as the
building up of a reputation for certain specialties, the placing ot a premium upon excellence, and receiving
better prices than could be obtained
from  local   retailers.    The  city  consumer  gets  the  products  fresh from
the farm; and at much more reasonable prices than might be charged by
the   retailer   if   there   were   no   local
market. • Various  investigations  have
shown that in some of our cities, certain staples cost two or three times
as much as the farmers received for
these  products.    A  recent  investigation  in  a  Canadian  city  of upwards
of'* 100,000 population showed that in
no case was the scale of prices of the
retailer -for farm products as low as
that   on- the .public  market,   and,   in
some    commodities,    the    price    was
about double.    While there are many
city residents who cannot get to the

December 9, 1913,  for  the   construction
jun,,y residents who cannot get to the
public market to buy, there are many
who can, but who are not patronizing
it. The difference in cost would pay
handsomely. The custom of going to
market is as old a° city life itself, and
■as iionourable as it is old.
Where a public market has been
opened in a town in which it had not
hitherto existed, prices to the consumer have been lowered. In towns
where they have been allowed to go
out of existence, prices have gone up.

The mining industries of India are
growing in importance. The aggregate value of the mineral production
of the year 1912 reached the total of
£ 9,321,485, - which represents an increase of £1,340,318 over the figures
of the preceding twelve months.
The Turkish government has definitely decided not to accept the offer of
the Standard Oil Company for the acquisition of a petroleum monopoly in
Turkey, according to a despatch from
Constantinople to the' London Standard.
Twenty-one million dozen eggs were
exported from the United States in the
fiscal year 1913, against one and a
half million dozen ten years ago. The
average price at which these eggs
were exported was 21% cents per
dozen.
It is estimated that the California
crop of rice will amount to ten million
bushels and pay the growers two
hundred thousand dollars. M
The loan which France is to make
to Turkey has been arranged. It
amounts to seven hundred million
francs, and in return the Porte grants
concessions for five railway lines in
Asia Minor, contracts for all of which
have been signed, as well as' sundry
concessions elsewhere.
It is reported that a Russian expidi-
tion has discovered land five hundred

The MemphiafflTenn.) Street railway, through improvementsi^to its
power plant, costing seventy thousand
dollars, hopes to save forty thousand
dollars a year. The increased fuel
efficiency, meaning the burning of far
less fuel and the saving of thousands
of dollars, is being brought about
through the installation of one thousand square^feet of chain grate service
and the equipment of forty-eight

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The improvements carried out
through the provincial department
of public works in Princeton and
district have been most beneficial
and reflect much credit upon the
local member of the. legislative
assembly and the road superintendent. Our roads, streets, bridges
and trails are fully abreast of the
requirements of today and as soon
as some' of the outlying camps have
developed sufficient ore, roads will
be pushed on to them. The streets
of Princeton are in a fit condition
for the traffic on them, either of
vehicles or pedestrians, and the
cleanliness of them is. a matter of
comment by strangers. The town
is fortunate in having these vital
conditions so well guarded by the
superintendent and his competent
foremen. The principle of giving
praise to whom praise is due is one
which reacts in better service and
greater facilities for the peoDle.
From Mr. Shatford, M. P. P., down
to the foreman and even the man
behind the pick there has been
conscientious and faithful service
during the season of road and bridge
building now nearing its close.
The government will not be slow to
recognize competency, which is the
unfailing qualification for promotion, and whether it be the legislator
or the subordinate official the
people will endorse any action that
true merit may demand.
In the ordiuary course of political events it is not improbable that
a change in the provincial cabinet
will shortly take place. The
present finance minister, owing to
advancing years and a longstanding
desire to serve his country in the
highest legislative chamber in the
land, is about to make a vacancy in
the government. Some names have
been mentioned in the daily press
as probable and eligible successors
to the Hon. Price Ellison on the
woolsack. ■ While no mention has
been made so far of the honorable
member for the Similkameen, as
the future finance minister, {here is
not in the whole house one more
worthy, more capable. He has
been endowed with those natural
qualities of caution, decision and
business acumen which are necessary for the handling of large questions of finance and financial policies
generally. His record in commercial life has been one of unclouded success and a total  absence
of political shadiness has won the
confidence of the people he represents so well. As director and
general manager of a thriving bank
he placed it at once in the front
rank of financial institutions.
Moreover, what is no doubt the
best recommendation anyone could
have for any office or public position,
is the fact that Mr. Shatford has
conducted his own private business
to a successful issue and with an
untarnished record for probity,
integrity and ability—per se, no
further argument in favor of his
acceptance of ministerial honor
could be adduced, in all which his
constituents will heartily concur.
The necessity for sewerage is
apparent to anyone who considers
cleanliness and sanitation in connection with the well being of any
town or community. Filth in the
solid, liquid, odor, or even in word,
is offensive to all who cultivate the
higher life in thought and deed.
An unsewered town or city is unthinkable for all who appreciate
conditions of sightliness and beauty.
Where there is no sewer the constable or health officer will observe
the garbage, slops, tin cans, vegetable offal and table refuse thrown
to the rear'of buildings, there to
attract snarling dogs, cats, cattle,
a stray hog or'two, flies, maggots
and other crawling things. A
trunk sewer on each of the two
leading streets of Princeton is an
absolute necessity. The govern-
meni assists rural communities in
in the construction of sewers ; why
not Princeton ? Cleanliness in any
form is elevating, refining, makes a
person feel better and look better ;
uhcleanness is degrading, associated with vice, harbors microbes
and is sin.

Every week or two an agent of
some one .of the daily press visits
the small towns throughout B. C.
soliciting subscribers. With a
ready lingo and seductive offers of
prizes the agent catches a goodly
number of persons who never subscribe for their home paper. If the
daily press would boost for the
Similkameen, the railway so slow
a-coming, mention occasionally our
resources, or even copy some of the
news from the local press, there
would be less opportunity for legitimate kicks by the papers serving
their home field. Some of these
agents, if not all, solicit job work
and carry away hundreds of dollars
to the big city, most of which
should be left in the home town.
If the big dailies with no end of
financial backing crowd to the wall
the struggling home paper which
gives all its time to the welfare of
the district there can be no reasonable complaint from residents if the
said papers give no publicity to the
field they monopolize and which
they support.

THE WIDE WORLD.
Dairymen of Canada claim that
United States buyers have begun to
destroy their source of supply of dairy
stock all through eastern Ontario and
the Province of Quebec since the passage of the tariff act.
The campaign to "free British land
from landlordism and get the people
back on it," was opened last week at
Bedford by Chancellor of the Exchequer David Lloyd-George. He said in
his speech: "Landlordism is the greatest monopoly in this land, and the people are trusting in the government to
put forth its strong right hand to lift
them from the mire. The authority of
the sovereign is not comparable to
that of. the landlord over his subjects.
He could make and maintain a wilderness, and he has legal authority to do
more than even a foreign enemy could
impose on the country after a conquest. In Ireland millions have been
driven away from the land" by legal
process."
The Journal of Commerce and Commercial Bulletin says: Is cheaper
meat actually at hand as a result of
the passage of the new tariff act, and
are the big packers sincere in their
oft-repeated statements that the present high prices are due solely to the
workings of the law of supply and
demand? These two questions are
likely to be answered wilihin the next
two or three weeks. Argentine beef
is on its way to the United States in
large quantities, and is being brought
in by the big packers themselves. That
which is now.en route or about to be
shipped will, of course, come in free
•of duty under the new tariff, and
should therefore be sold at a decidedly
lower price to the consumer. Just
how the importation of the new beef
will affect the price of the domestic
product remains to be seen. The
quantity is estimated to be the equivalent of one hundred to one hundred
and fifty cars, such as would be shipped from the West.
A Canadian doctor may now practice in every province of the Dominion,
The first examination under the Canadian Medical Act was held last week,
when 71 candidates presented themselves, and 44 passed. This shows
that examinations are quite hard
enough to keep out unskilled physicians and surgeons.
By a vote of four to one the public
service commisison of Massachusetts
approves the full issue of $67,552,000
-convertible debenture bonds asked for
by the New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad. It also approves an
issue of stock, into which the bonds
may be converted later on; it finds
that the purposes for which the proceeds of the bond sale are to be used
are "reasonable and' proper and lawful;" it finds that sufficient capital
stock has been paid in to permit of
the new bond issue under the law
which authorizes bonds to twice the
amount of capital stock.
President Wilson has approved Secretary of Commerce Redfield's plans
for investigation of the affairs of manufacturers who may close factories or
reduce wages on the excuse that such
curtailment is forced by the new tariff.
An appropriation for this work will be
urged upon Congress. Approval was
also given for Mr. Redfield's plan for
investigation of cost of production,
wages, and living conditions here and
abroad. The plan contemplates increases in tariff rates found too low
because of foreign manufacturing conditions.      **

A poor old woman of the Tennessee
mountain type was found weeping bitterly
by a passing traveller. He made bold to
inquire the cause of her grief. 'I done
heerd my son's bin sent to the leg'later,'
she answered. 'I don't know fer what
nerfer how long, mt I prays God they,11
be easy on him.'
One day Major Jackson, a contractor
in a Georgia quarry, told Zeb, the general
utility man, to go to the blacksmith shop
across the road and bring back a drill
that was to be sharpened. About an
hour later the Major saw Zeb come pok-.
ing around the corner of the office. 'Here,',
he shouted, 'where have you been ?' 'I
ain't been, boss,' responded Zeb, 'I's
gwine.'     -JSSS-?

Hall roused her family and they hurried
into their clothes, preparatory to retiring
to the cellar. The thirteen-year-old
daughter, who was just beginning to be
particular as to what she wore, hastened-
before dressing-' into her youngest aunt's
room, and, although half-crying, inquired
anxionsiy, 'Aunt Nellie, would you wear
your hobble skirt if you were me ?'
Pater (to indolent son)—Why don't
you go to work ? You have attained your
majority. Son—Yes dad ; but mine isn't
a working majority.
to be so well off? As yon know' he died
the other day, and now the story goes
that his one and only possession was an
old grandfather's clock.' 'Ah, well
there's one good thing about that. The
trustees won't have much difficulty in
winding up his estate.'
A clergyman was being shaved by a
barber who had evidently become unnerved by the previous night's dissipation.
Finally he cut the clergyman's chin.
The latter looked up at the artist reproachfully, and said : 'You see, my man,
what comes of hard drinking.' 'Yes, sir,'
replied the barber consolingly 'it makes
the skin tender.'
Two soldiers were speaking about the
battle of Bull Run. One of them was a
Yankeerthe other an Irishman. 'Pat,'
said the Yankee, 'were you at the battle
of Bull Run?' 'I was,' said Pat. 'Did
you run, too?' 'I did,' said Pat, 'and
the man that did not run is there yet.'
Autoist—I haven't paid a penny for repairs on my machine in all the ten
months I've had it. Friend—So the
man who did the repairs told me.
,You knew old Dempster, who was said
The money picked up by the trappers
in a season is something that would
make a great many people sit up and
take notice. Fifteen years ago 75 cents
was good value for a skunk, $1 was considered a high quotation for a mink and
10 to 15 cents was all anyone ever expected for a muskrat. Compare these
prices with present day values, $4 to $5
for black sknnk, $6 and $10 for a prime
mink and 50 to 60 cents for spring musk-
rats. The foregoing is from the statement of A. B. Shubert, Inc., of Chicage,
one of the largest houses in the world
dealing in raw furs

^ The Instructive Idea
p       of Advertising
5 Constant advertising not only
5 gives the town a good appearance
\ as reflected in the newspaper but it
\ keeps your business in the lime-
| light.   H|
[ Never plaster the hillsides, trees,
[ posts, &c, with your ad. ; it looks
I cheap and Jewish and besides
J spoils the scenery, defaces the trees
\ and makes a target of the unoffending post for sneers and bullets.
An ad. invites outside orders as
well as home ones.
People read advertising now for
instruciion and information, as well
as for its 'bargain' possibilities.
Newjdeas new thoughts, inspirations and suggestions constantly
come to you if you take advantage
of the advertising columns of this
newspaper.
Don't neglect your ad. reading.
