 Rivers and creeks of Princeton District. Gold Bearing
When envy and gossip get busy keep your front door locked.
Princeton  is a Division point of the V.,V. & E. and will be its western terminus during construction, probably two years, toward
the coast—It will also be the junction point for Ashnola branch and is converging point of roads and rivers; it is the centre and hub.

FIRE FIEND REIGNED
Fire, Accompanied   by High
Wind Devastates the
Up Country.
Lumby, Mara, Shuswap and Enderby
Districts have Great Losses
of Property.
Tuesday, May 4th, was a disastrous day
for raging fires in ihe Shuswap. Mara and
Enderby districts. The firet originated
from clearing land, which owing to the
high winds gut beyond control and spread
over a wide area of country.
Many farmers lost everything they had
in the way of implements, barns, hay
and grain, and home. Two saw mills,
the Rothesay and the Carlin were destroyed, also a large box factory. The
total loss is estimated to reach a million
dollars.
In view of the great danger of running
fires it would be the part of wisdom for
farmers and all others to gather up every
thing burnable about their premises and
place it in an isolated heap. All dead
logs and wood rubbish should be cleaned
up before the hot, dry weather of summer comes.
IMPROVEMENTS TO ROADS
AND^TRAILS.
Work on the various roads in this sec-;
tion is in full swing and much needful
repair and improvements are being made
by the several gangs. Foreman Golds-
borough has a considerable force repairing the trunk road. Sam Spencer will
have charge of a party repairing Hope
trail and Bert Thomas is foremauizing
the good work so far done between the
bridges. Mr Shatford is certainly rendering a good account of himself here
and in so doing is creating an invincible
record.
PITHY PARAGRAPHS FROM
GRANITE GREEK.
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
J. T. Hillis of Vancouver was here last
week looking over some property nearby
and will return about first July.
Mayor Frencby paid Princeton a visit
last week. He says: 'Fulla hum cho
wa, Plincton,' which means: Bye and
bye, heap Dig place, Princeton.
J. Burr, constable, of Ashcroft, and
Constable Clark of Nicola were guests at
the Hotel Granite on Friday night.
Mr. Ludwick and bride came in on
Saturday to pay Mr. and Mrs. Holmes a
visit. Miss Thynne and Miss McKenzie
of Penstowe ranch accompanied them.
J. P. MacSwain arrived last Wednesday night and took lodgings at Welldo,
but he was disturbed by the singing of
the early bird, so-he crossed the river
and completed his siesta on the verandah of the Granite Creek hotel, where
he was found by the propiietor early next
morning covered with a coat.
C. DcBarro is working pay dirt on
Granite creek and brought down some
gold last Wednesday.
J, W. McCann has moved his gold
hunting outfit from the head of Newton
creek to about two miles from Granite.
The bachelors of Granite, viz: C. De-
Barro, Dan Ross T. Murphy, I. Amberty
and H McCallister are sending a letter
to the Sultan of Turkey stating that as
he is about to lose his head and has eleven
wives, they are willing to provide .uit-
able homes for five of them
: Mr. and Mrs. Jackson were visitors
here last Sunday from Tulameen.
SIMILKAMEEN VALLEY AS
FRUIT LAND  ^
The B. C. Fruitland Co . Limited, of
Calgary, Alberta, has issuedyS booklet
descriptive of the Low^*^iinilkameen
valley which is credTbabJeTo both publishers and printers. Princeton, is, of
course, outside ofjme zone of this Co's
operations, the land it has for iale being
situated at Keremeos. Besides, the Upper Similkameen is first and last a coal
and ore producing section, with also,:
fruit growing and agricultural possibilities. The B.C. Fruitland Co. are wideawake and enterprisiug, transforming a
large portion of the Keremeos valley
from sage brush, cayote and rattlesnake
pasture, to blossoming orchard and semi-
tropical garden produce. They will make
a million of money, and make it quick,
out of their investment—they deserve it.
PTOMAINE POISON WAS IN
THE CAN.
What might easily have been a verdict
of 'death from poison' was happily averted by prompt action in the case of Mrs.
C. Bloomfield last week. It appears that
she ate some canned fish food which had
been allowed to remain in an open tin
qver night, resulting in decomposition.
In a short time after partaking of the
food the lady was seized with violent
stomach pains which were relieved and
danger removed by prompt attendance
of the doctor, who employed the usual
remedy in such cases. Too much care
cannot be exercised in eating tinned food
no time being lost in emptying contents
once the can is opened. Rapid decay of
contents in contact with tin after exposure is often noted and this condition develops ptomaines, an alkaloid with deadly
poison propet ties.
LOCAL AND CENERAL
What will the Program be on
Dominion Day ? That's
the Question.
The First of July Drawing Near—Joe
Martin Goes Down, but Will
Rise Again.
Bill Scruby has been laid mp in the
Greenwood hospital and is now, convalescing.
Thos. Mayes, superintendent of the
Vernon branch of the provincial insane
hospital, died at Vernon last week.
Not a whimper about Dominion Day
celebration ! Is it true that Princeton-
ians are losing their grip when it comes
to sport? Dominion Day is Princeton
Day, and don't forget it.
Joe Martin met his Waterloo at Strat-
ford-on-Avon, being beaten 2 to 1.
A very serious, and under the circumstances distressing, fire occured at Can-
ford, on the Nicola branch of the C.P.R.,
yesterday week, when the sawmill owned
by Messrs. Collins Bros. & McGowan was
totally destroyed. The enterprising
owners have the sympathy of the whole
community, there being no insurance to
cover the entire loss.
The death of Archdeacon Small at St.
Luke's Home, Vancouver, last week, removes a well known ecclesiastic. His
demise was due to pneumonia.
Dr. Williams of Vernon is. suing for
divorce on the ground of alleged crim.
con. of wife. A man named Hutton is
co-respondent at one time friend, confidant and attache of the family.
School Inspector Miller will hold an
examination for high school entrance in
the Princeton public school house beginning on Thursday, May 20th.
P. Y. Smith writes from Gbwganda of
the wonderful growth of that camp, but
he is satisfied with Princeton district and'
is coming back soon. .
O. Rain is assisting at the brewery for
a few days. A large consignment of
soda water and ginger beer has been received there for sale
Wm. Gillespie, of Gillespie & Son,
freight forwarders, Keremeos, was in
town last Friday night on business.
. Elmo Henderson, of Tulameen, has
built a model of an aeroplanejwhich may
yet bring him fame and money. What
most people would like is a pair of wings
to enable.them to soar above the trials,
difficulties and perplexities of- live. O.
give us wings.   Try again, Elmo.
STILL UNPAID FOR THEIR
ELECTION SERVICES.
'Is the Liberal Government at Ottawa
bankrupt?' 'What is the 'unpaid representative' of Yale-Cariboo doing, that
he does not see his loyal supporters paid
for their. services ?' Since the day of
election, six months ago, no one has been
paid here.    Mr. Ross could  not take a
more effective way of driving loyal Lib
erals out of the party than bv withholding this money. Of course he will deny
any blame attributed to him, but has he
not said that he is the unpaid representative of this riding and that he had. influence with the Liberal ministry ? Perhaps
Sir Wilfrid will attend to this matter.
PUSHING WORK ON RECO TO
A FINISH.
The development of the Reco, Copper
Mountain, goes on with energy under
direction of Superintendent McCauley.
Dave Innis recently took a load of miners
up to the mine and Frank Garrison drove
a four-hotse load to it the other day. It
is expected that the lead will be tapped
within the life of the bond. 'Mac' has
the staying qualities and the money, too,
so, everyone is anxiously awaiting the
result and hoping that he .wili make a
big strike, for the future of Copper Mountain will be affected by the Reco developments.
COW REARS FOUR MOTHERLESS LAMES,
Jack Thynne has a sympathizing cow,
one which has set a good example of
tender care for the orphan. 1 Among his
flock of sheep were four motherless little
Jambs wandering about and bleating for
.help, which seemed to appeal to the
motherly instinct of the cow. Having
caressed them in her owncowlike way
which the young innocents appreciated
very much, they were privileged to do as
all sucklings wish. Not only are they
thriving on their foster mother but a real
affection seems to have sprung up between
them, the little toddlers playing about
her when §he is at rest. Mr. Thynne has
had the happy family 'snapped' and soon.
we may expect to see them in print.
CLEANLINESS NEXT TO GODLINESS
'What a nice, clean looking- town ybu-
have ?' is quite frequently heard from the
strangers arriving. It is true that the
streets and vacant lots are all right from
a sanitary standpoint, but 'how about'
the backyards ? Cleanliness is a great
preventative of contagion, destroying the
deadly microbe as nothing else can. It
also abates the fly nuisance. And flies,
though useful as scavengers, are fruitful
propagators and distributors of disease
germs. If there should be any typhoid
lurking about, the best precaution against
its ravages is absolute cleanliness. All
wells and river water supply should be
above suspicion of contamination.

ADVANCE! PRINCETON.
The road improvements now in
progress in and about Princeton
are having a stimulating effect on
property owners, individual and
corporate. The spirit of progress
is abroad. Transportation facilities
of railway and highway, sidewalks
and meditated street grading, fencing and ornamenting the Triangle
along with the free use of the paint
brush on buildings, all and more
will tend to make the 'City Beautiful' as well as useful. In laying
down sidewalks along Bridge Street
from the Tulameen to the Similkameen and on Vermilion Avenue,
much inconvenieuce and annoyance
will be saved pedestrians who hith
erto had to wade through either a
sea of mud or a sea of dust, accord-
,jto the season. From, a mere country four corners with ungraded
streets that afforded pasturage for
besplattering herds and bell maddening cayuses, Princeton is now
really putting on a garb commensurate with its designation of
' town.'
With  the   Sanitary  Act  in  full
force, beautiful location, fishing and
hunting all around, and notoriously
healthy  climate,   not  to  say anything  of   vast   mineral  resources,
the inducements to settle in Princeton or  district  are  most excellent.
The river flats and  the fertile plateaus  make   it   possible  for  every
7wage earner to own an acre, a cow,
i a rooster and   his profitable family
■ of chicks.    But of course the chief
attraction  to  western tpw.ns is the
• moneymaking possibilities they present and along this line  few places
have the advantages  of Princton.
While it is now in its embryo state
; exceptional opportunities for investment  are  common aud should ap-
p. al to the business acumen of men
with large or small financial means'.
On  the suburbs  of the  town are
broad acres which can be made big
revenue producers  but are now as
sterile  as  any  mountain  peak for
want of cultivation.    Real estate is
a field  for  investment   which can
scarcely    be   overestimated.     The
natural increase in values all over
the province is surprising.    At the
present rate,   a half decade  hence
will  witness    a   threefold   rise in
Princeton real estate.
Until, however,   a payroll worth
dustries or mercantile houses. The
payroll, in the case of Princeton, is
an adjunct of the railway and will
immediately follow in its wake.
Great Northern officials have stated
that fifty i. tons of our coal will be
required xlaily for consumption in
operating the V.,V. & E. Another
fifty tons will surely be required to
meet the market demands of the
district and the Boundary. This
tonnage is the minimum estimate
and takes no thought of the very
probable demand for coal at Spokane and other Washington points.
Metalliferous mining will give employment to a large number of men
who will swell the population of
the town and be the creative force
in the foundation of a long list of
private and public enterprises. So,
a town of two or three thousand
population within the next five
years is not an unreasonable estimate for Princeton. Agriculture,
fruit growing, lumber and brick-
making are certain to expand aud
thrive as the staple industry of
mining advances.

THE     S I'M I L KA~M E E N     STAR
THE PHIL9SOPHY OP LIFE.
While it is hard for many persons to
confess their faults to others yet it is the
only process whereby real betterment can
be made.
The man or woman who habitually
practises deception must become a living
lie and be known as such among their
neighbors.
We make laws and appoint officers to
enforce them, but the farce of it lies in
said officers acting only when they are
good and ready, or not at all, or when
specially and politely requested.
Backbiters and knockers neither edify
nor make happy—there is always an air
of frigidity about them which repels;
no one seeks their company and they
are always begging visits.
A woman gets angry if she hears any
one abusing her husband. It's usurping
her privilege.
A man with a lot of money is always
a great help—to himself.
He only is advancing in life whose
heart is getting softer, whose blood
warmer,  whose   brain   quicker,    whose
spirit is   entering into   living peace.—
Rusk in.
To speak disparagingly of another does
not elevate you in the eyes of others—
cut it out. If you cannot say anything
good about one, say nothing bad.

Mr. Horace J. Stevens, of Houghton,

of the defunct companies haviag been
improved by the addition of neat verbal
tombstones.

any part of the globe, without a penny
iii advance, the publisher preparing express charges, and allowing the purchaser
