No choked pipes or flues if Princeton coal is used.
The Bible is the salt that preserves men from savagery.
Two railroads will serve Princeton and district in the near future; the Great Northern (V.,V. & E.),is already here and the
C P.R., (K.R.V.), is building—Investments made now will increase rapidly—Large industrial enterprises will be established.

RAILS TO COALMONT
Another Short Stretch of Line
Completed Toward
the Coast.
Construction on the Kettle Valley is
Active at Penticton—Survey
Coquihalla Pass.
Chief engineer of construction on the
V.V., & E., J. H. Kennedy,  recently in
spected  the   survey  of Coauifi»11a  Pass
and it   s reported that still anotheKroute
will be surveyed to obtain" betterjrra_-g.
Rails were laid to Coalmont last Friday
completing the section from Princeton
and adding 14 miles in two years to the
completed V.VTnitbe—_____kameen.
This is not very swift railroad construe
tion and is evidence of nature slowing
down in Jim's old age—quite different
now to the days when he used to slide
the gang plank out on a Missouri flat
boat and hustle the hoboes ashore. But
the people are glad to have another short
stretch of rails and hope for the early
completion of the line to the coast.
J. G. McLean, contractor on the east
end of the Kettle River Valley railway,
was in town this week and reports pro
gress on construction. He will probably
take a large slice of grading—between
Penticton and Piinceton and w'II make
the latter base of supplies. He looks
forward to great railway construction
activities next spring. A race is expected between the K.V. and V.V. through
Coquihalla pass.   Mr. Tvr.T,._p  i___ bro-
I
/ ther oLthe 'laird of Ashnola,' the future
smelter tp.w___
M. Irwin, relief agent on the Great
Northern, was at the station here for a
few days recently. The freight business
and passenger traffic have increased at
such a rate that a larger staff of clerks is
urgently needed.
Superintendent Morgan, Trainmaster
Doyle, District Freight and Passenger
""SSSSft Smith, all of the Great Northern,
were here last week sizing up the growing importance of Princeton. Nothing
definit _ could be elicited from them regarding the disjointed train service now
in vogue between here and Spokane.
KETTLE VALLEY RAILWAY,/
  A.
Construction Begins From Penticton'
Toward Princeton.
The contractors for the first five mile
stretch of track for the Kettle River
Valley Railroad, out of Penticton, arrived
in town this week. They are L. M. Rice
and Alfred Anderson, of the firm of Rice
& Company, Vancouver and Spokane,
and Gus Beck, who will practically have
charge of the work.   Four cars of mater
ial arrived about the same time at Keremeos, and are being hauled to Penticton
by road. Almost the whole of the ma
terial was shipped from Spokane through
Keremeos, but in future it will be sent
through Vancouver and down the lake,
thus saving considerable time and
haulage.
Only five miles of the road have been
let on the west side, as the question of
running into Summerland, or not, has
not yet been settled. The contractors
have not, therefore, brought in any large
machinery for the present, and will proceed with the work by manual labor,
pending the decision of the directors.
It is estimated that at least 250 men
will be employed, the contract calling
for the section to be finished early in the
spring. The contractors age endeavoring
to get permission from the agent to form
a camp on the Indian Resrve Little
difficulty is expected, in obtaining his
consent. All the necessaries for the Camp
will be purchased in town, and contracts
have already been made, with seyeral of
the storekeepers, for groceries and other
goods.
In a statement made to the Herald
representative, Mr. Rice said his firm
had the contracts on the east and west
sides of the lake, about 75 miles in all.
That towards Merritt will be proceeded
with as soon as the Summerland grad.s?
are ascertained. Mr. Rice has covered
the district around Penticton, and esti"
mates by the time the railway is ready'
to handle the fruit crop of 1913, the pro
duction will amount to 12" cars.
The station, freight sheds and roundhouses will be built by the K. R V. R.
Co., uuder the supervision or Mr.
Kierstead.—Pentictou Herald
TOOK FIRST ON ' SPUDS.'
By winning the Stillwell trophy and
$1,000 at the Great Pan-American Exhibition at New York Saturday, British
Columbia has earned the reputation of
growing the best potatoes on the North
American continent. The exhibit which,
gained this reward consisted of 101 var
ieries drawn from all sections of tbe
province, aggregating in weight about
one and a half tons. The credit for the
display rests entirely with the Department cf Agriculture. The entire province
was scoured to secure the finest specimens and W. E. Scott, Deputy Minister
of Agriculture and those who assisted
him in the task deserve the highest praise
for the new honor which they have won
for the province. The exhibit was in
charge of Mr. Ashahel Smith, the "Po-
tatoe King." of British Columbia.'
The annaul hospital benefit ball at
Hedley will be given Friday, Jan. 19,
1912, the announcement being made
early to avoid any conflict of dates. It
will be masquerade and the committee
will spare no effort to make it an enjoyable occasion.
MINES AND MINING
Coal, Ore and Placer Mining
Basis of Wealth in
this District.
Friday Creek   Mining Property Inspected in Behalf of Large
Metal Companies.
The Princeton Coal & Land Co. have
a large fo'ce of miners and surfacemen
employed. Details of the work done will
be referred to in extenso in a subsequent
issue.
Frtd Keffer,,E. P. Wheeler and H. H.
Shallenberger, general manager of the
International Iron and Steel Co., were
here last week and went to Friday Creek
to inspect Mr. Wheeler's mineral property. A large number of ore samples
were taken. It is twenty years since Mr.
Wheeler located his claims at Friday
Creek, the only drawback to their becoming producing mines being lack of
transportation. He is pleased to know
that the government in running its direct
transprovincial wagon road has touched
■Friday CreeW, giving him much needed
preight transportation. The party rode to
Ashnola in the first au__mobile to reach
Tarffie5__ip-t___ Simy^tameen river. Mr.
Wheeler will winter in Los Angeles, returning here in the spring.
The B.C. Copper Co. is pushing development and exploratory work at Voigt
camp with a strong force of men. Machinery has been installed and work is
well advanced.
Wm. Wilson is working on the Virginia group of mineral claims near Whip-
saw Creek and' expect to strike the ore
body in a tunnel he is driving. He has
had some very good assays. The conutry
formation is of schist and granite
contact.
The city of Winnepeg will in future
confiscate coal and wood short in measure
or weight and will prosecut all guilty
dealers with the object of giving them a
term in the penitentiary.
THE WINTRY BLAST.
A touch of real winter weather broke
into the fine fall last week and now the
ground is covered with beautiful, white
—of course, fluffy snow. Ah, the snow-
How it cheers,' and brightens the face of
nature. And the kids, old and young,
just revel in it. The present fall of 15
inches is the earliest on record for sleighing. And the thermometer dropped below zero so suddenly that a man was
caught with his potatoes undug in his
garden. They will be planted 'all right'
for next year's crop. Since the snap
the weather has moderated and predictions are freely made that an open win. 1
ter will tesult from the unprecedented
,014^17 below, and great snowfall. At
the coast, on the prairies and far east
there was a succession of blizzards causing damage and hardship. The pranks
of Jack Frost i _ the Siniilkameen will
cause some loss in bitten vegetables, bnt
no very serious damage has been reported. The weather today is superb and
mild with prospects of a gentle winter.
EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton, Nov. 13.—W. C. Reeve
and W. W. Robson, of Vernon, B. C,
were in town last week on business.
The pile driver is at work driving piles
on the south bank of the river for the
bridge approach.
The United Empire Mining Co. has
struck a new seam of coal of excellaiit
quality with sandstone roof and foot wall.
The masons have finished the walls of
the coal drying house at the cement plant
and have commenced work on the large
stock house.
Plans are being prepared for the
Methodist church on tlie corner of 7th

THOMPSON—WILLIAMS.
The marriage of Neil Thompson, of
Princeton, to Miss Clementine Williams,
of Riverside, Wash., was solemnized on
the 8th inst. at the residence of C. L.
Cummings, Kenley ave. by the Rev. A.
H. Cameron, of Keremeos, assisted by
the Rev. T. A. Osborne, of Princeton.
Miss E. Lyall was bridesmaid and Dr.
McCaffery assisted the groom throughout
the trying ordeal, the pretty ceremony
being witnessed by a number of intimate
friends of the contracting parties. Star.
bids the happy couple a fair voyage over
life's solemn main in which it is joined
by congratulations of many friends.
COALMONT NEWS.
Coalmont, Nov. 10.—The tracklaying
gang of Guthrie & Co., finally arrived
al Cbalmont todayTand the toot of the
locomotive was heard for the first time in
this vicinity. The arrival of the rails at
Coalmont marks another step in the progress of the V. V. & E. R'y towards
Vancouver. There is every reason to believe now that this line will be pushed*
ou to completion in the shortest possible
period, and when finished will bring
Coalmont to within 152 miles of the
coast metropolis, a matter of a few hours
ride.
That building operations will continue
during the winter is vouched for by the
fact that tenders are being called for the
erection of several business blocks. Mr.
McTavish, the pioneer merchant of the
town is receiving tenders for the immediate construction of a two story building

IN-COW-MAS-KET.
The following tale of Indian life by
Stratton Moir, (Mrs. S. L. Allison) entitled ' In-cow-mas-ket,' will, no doubt,
be read with interest and pleasure by
residents of the Similkameen generally
many of whom are acquainted with the
gifted author. The setting of the poem
is laid in the Similkameen and depicts
in beautiful and familiar measure the
romantic life of the early braves and
Indian maids. Mrs. Allison has spent a
third of a century in the Similkameen
▼alley and is a pioneer of pioneers in the
wilds of this section, forming an important link in the history of the past with
the present. Her contributions to the
literature of the country will have an
archival value which must not be lost
sight of. Mrs. Allison has contributed a
parjer to a Lond. n society dealing with
the anthropology of the Similkameen
Indians, tracing the origin of these aboriginal inhabitants and adding to the
scattered legendary lore of the various
tribes of the province. Star hopes to
publish excerpts from these works from
time to time :
By a rapid flowing river
In-cow-mas-ket built his dwelling,
Called it by the name Chu-chu-e-waa;
There his kinsmen dwelt beside him,
In their circular mat houses,
Made from bark of fragrant cedar.
With him dwelt his aged grandsire.
Now sightless, helpless and infirm;
But his mental eyes were opened.
Things he saw which others see not,—
And men loved him for his wkdom.
In the lodge of In-cow mas-ket
Lived his first wife Sem tnin-at coe;
She was plain in face and figure,
She had borne him many children,
And she was now no longer young;
In-cow-mas-ket's aged grandsire
Teudertyshe loved and cherished,
When the men had gone a hunting,—
When the young men left the village,
Then she would lay him in the sun,
On a pile of soft warm bear skins.
She would sit and work beside him,
While he told her wondrous stories
Of the men and of the creatures
That lived in days long past and gone;
Stories told him by his father,
Old even then, when he was young;
How the rapid flowing river
Once but a tiny brook had been;
How the earth once shook and trembled
When the Father in stern anger
Reft the solid rock in twain,-1—then
The deeo lake pent in the mountains,
Down—downward  dashed   to   join   the
stream,
Tore its way on through the valley

Stomach trouble is but a symptom of, and not
In itself a true disease. We think of Dyspepsia,
Heartburn, and Indigestion as real diseases, yet
they are symptoms only of a certain specific:
Kerve sickness—nothing else.
It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Shoop
In the creation of that now very popular Stomach
Kemed. — Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Going direct
to the stomach nerves, alone brought that success

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
IN COW MAS-KET.
From 2nd page.
And formed the great Similk-ameen.
Madly dashing, like a wild horse, .
That hath broke its curbing rein, it
Rushes swiftly, tearing downward,
Swells Columbia, joins the main.
How one time upon the mountain,
Where he had gone to hunt the deer,
He had lost his band of horses,
Amidst the mountain's summer snow.
Foi though'warm and bright the weather,
Without a warning rose a storm.
Suddenly across the mountains
There swept a gust of freezing wind,
Driving lead-grey clouds before it;
Then suddenly the snow came down
Burying the men and horses;
Vainly did he try to save them.
He tried himself to make a road,
With his snow-shoes went before them,
Sinking—still sinking deeply down;
Ever wallowing before them,
Weaken'd, starving, stumbling after,
On came his poor dejected band,
Ever getting weaker, fewer—
Until at last but one remained;' t
He, a sturdy dark gray stalliomftj
The grandsire sang of Chippac(_T
1 "Once upon the Mount Chippaco
There lived a monster grim and dread,
Awful as that dreadful mountain
When thunder clouds enveil its head.
Awful was his devilish laughter
And fierce and scornful was his ire.,
When he found men on his mountain
Where he hides 'midst clouds and fire.
Women had he taken captive
And kept them on that mountain lone;
Men he mocked with fiendish laughter
Who sought to take the women home."
Sem-min-atcoe smiling listened
To all the wondrous tales he told.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The 'spoils system' of government has many good points which
commend it to the peoble—the taxpayers. It affords a quick and efficacious remedy for ihe fungi
which have accumulated and fastened onto the public service during
a political party's term at the helm
of state. In the east heads are
falling as the party guillotine is
put into action. The Liberals cannot consistently complain if the
Conservatives decapitate employees for they did the same thing
when they came into power and
authority at Ottawa.
It is perhaps a little too soon to
suggest universal peace while the
political sky is red dyed with almost
universal war. Turkey and Italy
at each other's throat, China bleeding from every pore is not a spectacle to inspire hope for abiding peace.
Other and more highly civilized
nations, if not christian, are pouring millions of money into arsenals
and dockyards in preparation for
some great Armageddon. It is
mere mockery ,to cry 'peace' when
all the world is either fighting or
arming. What is the solution of
all this unrestf bloodshed and poverty producing expenditure ? It
puzzles statesmen and ecclesiastics.
The reign of peace will come only
through every man being in harmony with his Creator, thus demonstrating the power of I/ove and
Truth.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Dr. Jackson, dentist, may be consulted
at the Similkameen hotel for a few day's.

In British Columbia.
b***A^b**bAAAAA*&bJ*^*AAA
CITY LOTS ARE  BEING OFFERED

IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LANDS WILL GREATLY INCREASE
Here are some of the Reasons :
, East Princeton is surrounded by huge deposits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important flinerals.
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 Iig=
nite coal of the best quahiy and isifeveloping
immense copper deposits," requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred em=
ployees. 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 invest=
ment.    Get full particulars immediately.

Canadian Asbestos.—About 82 per
cent of the world's supply of asbestos
comes from Canada, according to an ac
count of this industry published in the
Chamber of Commerce Journal. The
Canadian output has increased from 380
tons in 1880, to 64,300 tons in 1909, The
qvarries and factories are capitalized to
the amount of $24,290,000. In the Black
Lake quarries, Province of Quebec, there
are 45,000,000 of asbestos in sight. The
asbestos slate or shingle industry , a development of the last five years, has
grown to such an extent that it is predicted that within a short time 75 per
cent of all the asbestos produced in
Canada will be used in making this new
roofing material.
Carrying Maii, by Aeroplane.—
According to the report of the post office
inspectors to the Postmaster General, no
less than 43,247 pieces of mail matter
were despatched by aeroplane between
September 23rd and uctoDeTTBt." So en-
thusiasnc Has tne Postmaster General become as to the possibility of saving time
and money in delivering mail in certain
districts by aeroplanes, that he has asked
for an appropriation__c>f|>5o,ooo to enable
the Postoffice Department to experiment thoroughly along the lines. Just
as the automobile is at the present day
rapidly replacing the horse in .city mail
delivery, so the aeroplain will no doubt
displase the fast express before many
years have passed.

1   SAFETY IN COAL MINING.
The coal mine, with its explosions
and attendant loss of life, was for a
long time a source of annoyance and
having become tired of listening to the
opinions of coroner's juries as to the
probable causes of accidents, the government of the United States started a
model mine to ascertain several things.
They wanted to know principally if coal
mining could be made a safe occupation
without increasing the cos'jof production
beyond the commercial value of the
product of the mine. By experimenting
in a none too favorable vein at Williston,
N. D., they have found out that they can
produce coal at $1.60 per ton, while the
selliug price in that locality by private
concerns is $2.50 per ton, leaving a margin of 90 cents per ton profit. Briefly
the conditions in the government mine
are:
No boys are employed.
Every needed safety device is used.
No  one  has been  killed or seriously
hurt.
: The   air in   tunnels 2080  feet under
ground is pure and fresh.
Exits are arranged so that entombing
is impossible.
The work day  is 8 hours, six days a
week.
Miners make an average $5 per day.

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 can the greatest scientist extract sunbeams from a
cucumber. Every man makes his own destiny==his own fortune==nothing comes by so-called
good luck.   The door is wide ajar for all who have pluck and a little capital.    Investigate Now!
