No danger from deadly gases burning Princeton coal.
The right kind of faith in a town is not of the 'do-nothing' sort.
Land of promise I Land of hob.! | In the strong hearts of thy people, | The miner lured by hidden wealth, | Boundless wealth still undiscovered,
Dreams of future greatness rise       Where the love of country lies.       Gold and diamonds—precious ores;     Where the mountain torrent roars.

applause, The work was colored with

RAILWAY P0INTS.
Until a Canadian railway crosses the-
Hope mountains, however, there is no
possilgtlky whatever that the Similkameen will cease to be a tributary to the
city of Spokane and the Great Northern
railway. Once, however, such a road is
an accomplished fact, Vancouver will be
much nearer Princeton than Spokane is,
and will be able to offer the people advantages, ijKthe matter of trade, which
they could net look for from them the
merchants of a foreign country. Such a
railway, wouid not merely make Vancouver the commerpi|- capital of the
Similkameen, but would prepare the way
for industries in thi3 city to treat the
natural resources of that district, the extent and richness of which are unmistakable.—Province.
Ferrier & Livingstone have finished all
the bridges between Princeton and Coalmont on the V.,V. & _£„ and have discharged their brifjg^ builders.

EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton, Feb. 7.—W. Carsley
commenced work on a bungalow on 7th
avenue today.
J. Smith, Salmon Arm. has bought a
lot on 8th avenue.
Two choice lots on Cement street have
been sold to W. Ritchie, West Summer-
land, B. C.
W. J. Budd, manager of the B. C.
Portland Cement Co., ar.ived on today's
train.
The first of the machinery for the factory of the B. C. Portland Cement Co.,
is now on hand. Three carloads consisting of boilers and smokestacks for the
engine 100m, arrived last week and are.
being put in place. Five more carloads
of machinery for the engine room are
expected every day. Iu all, forty carloads of machinery will be required to
.quip the factory which is now lined
from   end  to en 1  with massive cement
THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE-
The snob in either sex affects superiority though lacking in brains to be original, hence they ape the manners, speech
and even dress of others.
The thin skinned person usually has a
thick head.
Good report of a person travels slowly
and is never exaggerated—evil report
flies swiftly and is always strained. Take
heed how you hear.
The booster is cheerful, while the
knocker is miserably glum. Be a booster.
Good health is attained by right thinking.   Guard the doer of thought.
Some women are awful touchy. A
w'.dow has brought an action against a
paper which said that h<r husband had
gone to a happier home.
We all know the man, the mere grip
of whose hand puts new life and
strength into us, and the woman whose
brave cheery smile—amidot disappointment and trouble—makes us ashamed to
despair and give up. And why should
we not resemble them? It is surely better to be like a bright, cheerful fire, at
which our friends can warm and revive
their drooping hearts, than like the proverbial wet blanket, which can effectually put out the flame of love and
hope. 	
OPTIMISTIC AND PROGRESSIVE.
A. E Howse and wife and Mrs Rogers drove f:om Nicola last Sunday, their
y sit being  prompted by   business    ar.d
pleasure combined. Mr. Howse notes a
steady advancement in the town since
his last visit and was pleased to observe
a second line of railway, the Kettle Valley, suryeyed into and beyond Princeton.
His large property interests here quite
naturally influence his earnest solicitude
for the prosperity of the town and dis
trict, but apart from these he has shown
public spiritedness worthy of emulation.
His earnings here, outside of the Star
which showed annual dehcus__mng the
wajtin,p vearSj have been reinvested in
buildings, mining, landed aud other in
vestments. He left for Nicola today and
goes to California with Mrs. and Miss
Howse on a pleasure trip.
COALMONT NEWS.
Coalmont, Feb. 6.—Ecclesiastical dignity became subservient to light fantastic
nimbleness at Granite Tuesday evening,
and Judge Murphy as aleC_l romancer,
wiled away the tiflae^wuth his usual exuberant jrerbosity.    No one was injured.
Four carloads of machinery^etc., are
expected in, in a d_y oj^e^Sfor the Columbia Coal & C«__e Co."'
A few buildings are. being erected by
the company at the tunnel mouth.
G. H. Wheeler, placer miner, who has
started to work a bench of ground on
Granite Creek, brought in some very fine
specimens of coarse gold.
J. N. Wynsby, school, inspector was
here for a few davs this  week-
Mrs. G. L. Fraser entertained quite a
1 irge number of friends to tea Friday
afternoon.
Quite a number of Coalmontites went
down to Princeton Presbyterian church
Sunday evening. They, wanted to encourage their preacher  and  at the  same
time hear what he had to say about
''Peculiar Men in Princeton."
The new church and schoolroom was
opened on Sunday morning and without
any fuss either.
The hockey match went against Coalmont. They were conquored, but not
subdued. They will come again all
right.
What, ho! A corner in lots reported,
and on main street too. Thing will hum
anj'how.
The general opinion at Tulameen on
Saturday was, that Joe Wigmore would
have made a splendid Salvation Army
captain. His orcheglra and grand march
were some classralright. All that he
wanted was a^tambourine and the rutfit
was complete. He may rustle one when
he goes to Europe.
There is a blind pig running around
town somewhere and rumor has it that it
may get stuck any time. The powers
that be have it at present,   "sub judice."
WHY NOT IN B.C. ?
Attentton is called to the lecent con-
ular report to the thrifty plan followed
in the province of Hanover, Germany, of
planting the roadsides with fruit trees,
the product of which is sold at auction
for the benefit of the local government,
the revenue thus obtained going a long
way toward the upkeep of the roads.
Hanover has some 7,000 miles of country
highways thus bordered. This year some
of the roads vie ded a revenue, from this
source at the rate of $595 a pule. The
fruit is protected by law, and du'ing the
season of ripening the roads are patroled
by ^harp-eyed watchmen, on bicycles, so
that little, if any i.f the fruit is diverted
from its propet destination.

It takes some people over an hour and others do it in less than half that
time. Why? Because they are so very much smaiter? Not a bit of it! The
smartest woman cannot get a quick meal without a GOOD STOVE.
A Good Stove is the best help she can get—and the cheapest. It helps to
save her money—Fuel and her Temper.   Have you got a Good Stove ?
Are you able to check your fire down at night—so that it just keeps going—
and that's all. Then in the morning open your drafts, shake down your grates and
start right in to get breakfast? Can you do this with your own stove ? You ran
with ours.
OUR NEW CHANCELLOR RANGES will do all this, and they will do
more. They will save you 20 per cent, on your Fuel Bill with their Economizer
attachment. They are fitted with Reversible Grates for Coal or Wood, which pull
right out and can be quickly adjusted without disturbing the lining They have a
large oval shaped firebox—no corners for dead ashes to lodge.
THEY ARE THE BEST BAKERS—The oven top and sides are lined with
Expanded Metal and Asbestos, and the dividing flue strips which run along the
top and down side of the oven ensures an even fire travel over oven. These two
features alone mean a properly heated ovsn and consequently the best baking
results.
THEY ARE BUILT FOR HARD USAGE. They are fitted with the largest
Steel Top on any range, with either 4 or 6 9 inch holes, and have Reservoir attachment on either end. The Range body is made of Wellesville polished blue steel,
put together with steeple headed rivets.
AND THEY ARE HANDSOME. Come and see for yourself and you will''
agree that our Chancellor is without doubt the finest STEEL RANGE made.
We have just received a carload of these Ranges and other Stoves and feel
sure that we can please you.    Separate Hot Water Fronts for all our Ranges.
Another  New Arrival—A  Carload  of At   Feed Oats.    Also a
Carload of first class Timothy Hay.    Get busy before they are all gone.

WELSH DISESTABLISHMENT,
Addressing and enthusiastic meeting at
London, Wednesday night Reginald Mc-
Kenna, the home secretary, said that
eaily in the coming session of parliament
he would introduce a bill for the disestablishment of the church of Wales. All
the resources of the government, he said,
would be used to carry the measure into
the law. The home secretary was inter-
upted for fully twenty minutes bv suffrag
ettes, many of whom were expelled from
the hall by the stewards amid scenes of
extreme violence.
SCIENCE AND INVENTION.
Smoke Prevention in London —
According to a parliamentary paper,
there ate 7,875 smoke consuming furnaci s
in London. Fifty four different types of
apparatus are used in the metropolis, all
of which are effective smoke consumerr.
Up to the date of issuing the report, 672
convictions for smoke nuisances had been
obtained before the magistrates.
A Battleship With Destroyer
Speed —It is announced in a despatch
from Devonport dockyard, that the battle
crusier "Lion," of the British navy.dur
•ing an eight hours' full power trial, broke
all records of large ships by averaging
over 31 knots speed. The vessel has 26,-
000 tons displacement and carries a
powerful armament of eight e3-5 inch
guns, Could she maintain thi? speed
crossing the Atlantic (which we d<>ubt)
she would make the run in four days.
The Sun as a LAmplighter.—In the
acetylene burning lighthouses along the
Panama canal will be installed copper
cylinders exposed to the sun. When the
sun rises in the morning and the rays fall
upon these cylinders they will expand
and close valves that admit gas to the
burners. As night approaches and the
sun's rays diminish in power, the cylinders \ ill contract and again turn on the
gas, which will be ignited by small pilot
jets.

According to the laws of industrial progress and the experience of founders of western towns,
there must be a tangible, genuine basis on which to establish the future city. No amount of
coaxing can bring blood out of a stone, nor cart the greatest scientist extract sunbeams from a
cucumber. Every man makes his own destiny==his own fortune==nothing comes by so=calIed
good luck.   The door is wide ajar for all who have pluck and a little capital.   Investigate Now!
