GOOD OLD CHRISTMAS
; "Stores Filled with XtBas Goods
Invite many to Inspect
$tl£y: and Buy-
Perfect Weather, Sleighing and Skating, all Conduce to Jovous
Holiday Season. _
*a_fc.
2«_s___^
Fonr days and then, merry Christmas
At this season of the year merchants and
dealers generally make special effort to
gratify the tastes and wants of their cus
totners. It is fitting therefore to note the
enterprise^pf local storekeepers .iii.keep-
ing abreast of the times and providing
s ocks that are capable of meeting the
wants of the most? exacting purchaskjj.
'No town of the size of Princeton has a
better quality or more vaiied stock of
Christmas and holiday goods, and there
L> no necessity to send m.ney out of the
district to build up large department
sto:es in the great cities Loyalty to each
other and to the town will make a greater
Princeton and happier holidays.
___J_-Joudry.
The watchmaking andiewelry business
is capably represented in skilled workmanship and the stock comprises the best
makes of wctches, clocks, jewelry and
silverware. Suitable presenta ion gifts
are to be found in Mjjjoudry's store in
tempting array. Useful'and ornamental
goods of genuine gold, silver and precious
stones may be obtained here at reasonable
prices and an inspection will repay you.
Princeton Drug and Bookstore.
This store carries a stock that would
be creditable to many large cities and its
internal arrangement and fittings are
uptodate, convenient and attractive. In
every detail of this business an air of
neatness and system pervades the departments and this coupled with careful dis
pensing is appreciated by customers.
For the Christmas trade there is endless
variety to select from.
C. V. Semerad & Co.
The people of this district appreciate
the fact.-that this firm provides the many
toothsome things 'which make the snm
of life enjoyable and happy. No matter what the season of the year may be
Semerad has always some tropical or subtropical fruits and vegetables on sale.
Then the bakeryaj_i_c_u_fectionery lit___
are ever inviting tq'the epicure and to
the hungry with all grades of appetite.
Everything nice for Christinas and New
Year.
Millinery and Dressmaking.
MesdamesBysouth &JCnrner have recently establisBeti^inThe French block
and now are very busy ou the various
fineries required for balls, weddings, &c.
They are practical and scientific and
the ladies of Princeton and district are
fortunate in having those who are fully
qualified to assist them in their choice
of correct and fashionable wearing apparel. As the male mind is not capable of
grasping the mysteries of millinery aud
dressmaking Star hopes to have a lady
editress in its enlarged field who will do
justice to this hitherto neglected subject.
Meantime consult Mms. Bysouth &
EP{5?ner.
Thomas Bros.
One of the oldest mercantile houses in
Princeton and always increasing their
business the firm of Thomas Bros, has
a certain stability which keeps old customers and attracts new ones. A large
stock of Chiistmas goods invites the prospective buyer and he is hard to p'.ense
who cannot find here something that
ivill both please and benefit. Dry goods
and clothing, grocepyj^. and hardware
make a basis upon which the large orde s
eutrusted to this firm are filled. But
theie are a thousand and one things outside of the staples which are found here
aud are appropriate for Christmas. See
the goods aud be convinced.
F. P. Cook.
The pioneer merchant of the Similka
meen is establishej^Lat^-Prino'oton. Goal.
m"nt .-vl ^mnit" (**m-p-\t He was at
the latter place in the 'palmy days when
fortunes were made by goldhnnters and
platinum sold ai four bits an ounce.
Success 'dogged' his footsteps and Mr.
Cook is iated as one of the solid men of
the country. His stores are well stocked
with clothing, boots and shoes, groceries
and hardware and at Christmastide no
thing is spared to make homes better and
brighter.
Carle's Grocery.
O. H. Carle started business in Princeton some two years ago, during which
lime he has been obliged to occupy larger
premises in the Irwin block. He has
branches at Hedley and Keremeos and at
the latter place grow_~fttrg<rquantities of
vegetables which he ships to the mining
camps. Mr. Carle is an energetic busi
ness man, contracting large quantities of
groceries and vegetables where competition is keen in the southern part of the
district. He is agent for the Brite-Lite
Portable Lamp, which is the nearest to
sunlight yet invented. See the lamp and
the Christmas good things.
The A. E. Howse Co., Ltd.
This well knov. n company has a larger
stock than ever laid down and the store
is literally filled with choice clothing,
boots and shoes, hardware, groceries and
Christmas goods in great variety. No
wonder the fine new addition now in
course of erection is required for the increasing business. Every branch of mercantile trade is represented and the advent of the departmental stores in Prince*
tori is a settled question, The busy staff
and uptodate equipment indicate a large
4fe
turnover   ah'1   judicious    management,,
'Call and see for yourself.
P. Burns & Co.
The name, 'P. Burns & Co.' is creditably known all over the west and that
name affixed to any kind of financial
ipaper is as good as No I hard wheat. It
:is beef, principally, that has made for
t.ine and fame for this company, but they
'are open for anything from a horse trade
Ito building a railway, or from seillihg
■squawbs to sluffing off a mine worth millions of dollars. A look at the butcher
shop at this Christmas season reveals an
artistic display of beef, mutton, pork and
poultry. Besides the staples there are
choice viands suited for every palafe and
taste.

CHRISTMAS.
To all Star sends greetings of the
season. No other day in all the
year has such a strong hold on the
mind and affections as Christmas.
It is the day for home coming and
reunion, for reviving fond memories and restoring the estranged oi:e
to the familiar circle of friends and
relatives. And it ought to be the
day on which all old scores, grudgts
and affronts should be wiped out ;
a clearing day for the settleir ent of
quarrels and other outstanding accounts resulting from offensive woid
or deed. The Prince of Peace was
born on this day and beside the perfect right to rejoice on that account
there is a duty laid upon all lo
bring about that peace and good
will which He came to proclaim.
The gift to friend is proper and is
largely a matter of course and custom, but of how much greater import and worth is the gift to the
unknown poor and friendless, the
heartbroken widow and orphan or
thi stranger on bed of pain. Christ
mas loses very much of its significance if giving is left out, for true
generosity and kindly charity aie
amoug the nobler traits of man.
Therefore give, and do it quickly
and without stint, never boastirg
of it or letting tbe one hand knew
what the other doeth. Christrras
celebrates the greatest event of all
time ; the birthday of Him who is
the Life, the Truth, the Way. To
and from that day the years are
numbered, time is measured and all
Christendom turns at least once a
year toward the holy city with reverential joy. A glad Christmas to
all Princeton and district.
Deluy in the construction of the railways is  a  tremendous  dra.-.back  to the
growth and prosperity   of Princeton and
the  whole  Similkameen   valley.    What
are we going to do about it ? TL. jkjV_v£^_. 1

OPENING NEW CHURCH.
The new Anglican church building wa™
duly opened for divine service last Sunday when good congregations .assembled
both morning and evening. In the
morning the opening hymn was "Christ
is our Corner Stone," and a special effer-
tpry hymn was "Holy Offerings, Rich
and Rare." A good number partook of
tbe the Holy Communion. The Vicar,
Rev. J. Williams, dedicated anew bible
aud the new altar before using them, and
preached from the words "My House
shall be called of all nations the hou=e
of prayer," and sb/>ke of the value of
a place of worship.
In the evening a larger number attended although there were a few vacant
seats. The singing aud the responding
was well taken np, and among the hymn-
was the churche's one foundation, "Onward,'Christian Soldiers''and "All Hail
the Power." The sermon was on the
text 'Let them build me a sanctuary that
I may dwell among them." The preach
er dwelt stongl) upon the state of those
who held aloof from worship and prayer
and pointed out the teaching of scripture
about those who had lost one of tneir
senses, the sense of spiratual perception.
Worship on earth was necessary to prepare for the worship of heaven. He
mentioned that this was the seventh
church he had had a hand in building
and the eighteenth anniversary of his
ordination. The collection amounted to
more than $24.00. Mrs. Waterman presided at the organ both morning and
evening.—Com.

CITY
LOTS
SALE
ARE  BEING  OFFERED
FOR THE FIRST TIHE.
FOR
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LANDS WILL GREATLY INCREASE
Here are some of the Reasons :
East Princeton is surrounded by huge de=
posits 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 lig=
nite coal of the best quality and is developing
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.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
NEW PROCESS FOB FELLING
TREES.
The attempts from time to time to cut
trees with a wire heated by electricity so
for ha not given satisfactory results.
Now a Berlin investor, Hugo Grantke,
has recently succeeded in designing an
extremely simjrfe.-device for the mechanical felling of trees. The trunks are cut
by the friction of an ordinary steel wire
about one millimeter in diameter (No.
18 P>« S gage) which, as shown by practice tests, is able to saw through a tree
about 20 inches diameter, in six minutes.
The steel wire driven by an electric
motor, is heated so intensely by friction
on the wood as to burn a thin carbonized
kerf, which is both smoother and cleaner
than the cut of the saw. The charcoal
layer adhering to the trunk is extremely
thin and allows the structure and any
disease of the wood to be distinctly recognized. It enables ihe tree to be marked with chalk, and at the same time
serves to preserve any trunks that may
be left temporarily in the woods.
Unlike other saws, the felling machine
will work freely even on the thickest
trees,without requiring any wedges to be
inserted into the cut; for instead of any
shavings we have only smoke and steam
and hence there is io danger of the cut's
becoming obstructed. The trees may be
cut close to the ground, or even below
the ground as far down as the beginning
of the roots will permit. In the latter
case the stump may be safely left in the
soil. The electric motor that drives the
steel wire is placed where it is not in
danger of being struck when the tree
falls.
While mechanical operation is in itself
much more rapid than hand labor, a
further acceleration is derived from the
absence of any intervals of rest between
two cuts. As a new piece of steel wite
costing but a few cents is taken for each
cut, there is no loss of time due to tl e
sharpening < f saws etc Only one man
is required to operate the machine as
against tw > men working with uand saws
aud the larger the tree the higher is the
relative cutting speed.
When electricity is not immediately
available, it can be generated by an existing steam or water plant. It may frequent y be found advatageous to use a
portable power plant consisting of a 10
horse-pever gasolene motor and dynamo
which may be installed temporarily in a
central location. A flexible cable may
connect the dynamo with the felling
machine which can be readily transported
and operated by one man.
An important advantage of the new
method arise from the absence of any
waste, the cut only two millimeters
(0,079 inch) in thickness being perfectly
smooth and level, whereas axes and saws
are bound to injure the trees to a considerable extent.
