Atlin Lake froze over on January  loth and navigation reopened-on  June 2nd.  That the past year has unquestionably proved prosperous to the  district in general goes without  saying. The output from the placer mines, considering the area  worked, has been highly satisfactory  and the development work going on  in quartz mining will iu the near  future, probably prove very profitable. It is satisfactory to observe  that we have experienced less  litigation" coneerning mining properties, to mili-alc against the pio  gress of lhc.nririir.g industry, than  in past years.  Hydraulic .mining on the bench  claims has proved very successful,  and the output of gold from all  sources of hydraulic mining will  undoubtedly continue to increase.  During the summer a number of  tourists visited Atlin and the surrounding camps; they were all loud  in their admiration of our magnificent lake and mountain scenery;  but only a few mining men representing capital, inspected the mines,  neveithelcss, we hear from all sides  that a growing and a more practical  interest is being taken in prospecting' and developing the many rich  discoveries of highly mincialized  quartz locoaled throughout the district. And il is most satisfactory to  know, that, wherever development  work has becifcontinued on quartz  veins, the rock has improved in  character, and higher values have  been obtained'  It must be admitted, however,  that we suffer from lack of capital;  in fact, it is a'.niaUer^of surprise to  seethe amount of work that has  baeii done,"inutile ..way of opening  up mines with the limited amount  of nioueyl.Vavailable.  On this account many promising  I., .jerries have suspended   work  It is indeed cuiious lo note that no  money, amounting-to what may be  termed mining capital, has ever been  forthcoming to develop the quartz  ���nines in close proximity  to   Atlin.  However, there is, one incontrovertible fact to encourage local  miners in the pursuance of their industry, namely, that; hitherto all  development work has had the  effect of greatly enchancing the(  value of their holdings by proving  they contain intrinsic values, which  warrant the, investment of capital  lo win. the precious, metals. ,Our'  mining industry is, also, on a more  substantial basis, and, generally  iu a sounder condition than ever before, and, that being so, we have  ample authority for taking a favorably view of its future, and, for  commending the gold,, silver, and  copper mines of tbe district to the  careful consideration of mining  capitalists.  Although, there arc not many  people residing in Atliu this winter  to witness the peaeeful demise of  the Old Year, those who are here,  old and young alike, are evidently  bent on-taking   the passing    event  with a cheerful grace; and are pre-;  paring to welcome the New Year  with the warmest of greetings!  Adieu,  1907!���Welcome,' 190S!  Far well,  t-* thee Old Year!  You've served us well  and   true,  We shed a grateful tear���  And, Bid you long Adieu.  Greetings to thee New Year!

Canada nusl one day  rise to the full dignity of nationhood  and either alone or in some partnership have and exercise the highest  powers of government. I-Ic said :-The  Dominion will most probably be one  of the following five: .ri*Union with  the United States: 2, Independent  Republic. 3. Union with the United  Kingdom: a. An independent monarchy with Canadian King and  Queen:   5.   Independent monarchy  with,   same    sovereign   as   United  Kingdom.  "In Mr. Ewarl's opinion the future  of Canada will seemingly be uation-  hoad, self control and political equality with the United Kingdom, instead of .subordination aud subserviency to the colonial office. If, concluded Mr. Jiwart, this be our future, then we will yet reach the goal  aimed at by the late Sir John A.  Macdonald. We shall get a British  monarchy in connection with the  J3ritir.li empire, and under a British  king, recognizing the sovereign of  Great Brilian as its' sole and only  head.  DISCOVERY, B. C."

T  TO C0NSUMP1  ���a^a^o*r^a<��o*a^a*o*o*C83��a*x-*��00<>��^c(��a^>^��^o.^0^D����K'.'? *�����  In Ihe  town   of'Patara    where,  St. Nicholas was bom    there   dwelt  a nobleman who had   three  daughters.     They were so   poor   that    he  was unable to give them   a  dowry."  The   three  girls   were    therefore  more than likely to he passed by in  the matrimonial market', aproof that  the manners and customs   of  fifteen  centuries ago were not so   very different from those of  our   own   day.  Somehow, the matter came to the  knowledge    of St.   Nicholas,    who  alwavs made it a point   to   use   his  wealth for the  purpose   of alleviating distress.     Putting a sum of gold  into a puise, 'he went one night lo  the nobleman's house. '  He'wantcd  to give nun the money yet he   was  unwilling to show himself,    for  he  .  was evidently one or those who pro-  fer "to do good by stealth and blush  to   find   "it   fame."     He  was   still  pondering how he should be able to  do this when he reached his destination,   aud   the   moon,   which   had  hitherto  been    obscured    suddenly  shone out through a   break   in   the  clouds.  Then he saw that a window  in the house had.   most- opportunely for his purpose,   been   left  open.  He took aim   and threw   the purse  through it.    It fell at the feet of the  father of the the girls, and   with   il  he was  able   to give   the   eldest    a  dowry.    As'^soon as she  was  married the event was not long defered  as soon as the men  heard   she   had  some money the saint portioned the  second girl  in   the   same     manner  and   with' the  same  results.    The  nobleman  determined    to  discover  who'Jiis benefactor was, and began  to wateh.  Did he see a possible allowance  for himself when his daughter eot  her purse through the window,  which he probably kept open night  and dav? Who shall say? When  St. Nicholas, armed with the third  purse, arrived, the nobleman caught  him;;: and, throwing himself at his  feet, said, "Ob, St. Nicholas, why  seek to hide thyself? " Nicholas  however, blushing to find his fame,  or perhaps fearful that all the por-  tionless^girls'of the town would be-  seige ' him.j- extracted a promise,  which was given without difficulty  lb-3' the nobleman, to keep the secret.  In consequence of this incident,  during the j".night proceeding St.  Nicholas Day, the parents and older members of tbe family always put  little presents into the slices and  stockings of the younger psople.and  when next morning they are found  they suppose St. Nicholas put them  there. This custom we all preserve,  and Santa Claus, or Father Christmas, still gets the reputation of filling the children's stockings.  The undersigned having been restored to health by simple means,  after suffering for several years with  a 'severe lung affection, and that  dread disease Consumption, is  anxious to make known to his fellow sufferers the means of cure.  To those who desire it, , he will  cheerfully send (free of charge) a  cony ol" the prescription used, which  they will find a cure for Consumption, Asthma, Catarrh, Bronchitis and all throat-and lung  Mai,a ones.

Chisel.  o-0-9t  Ask at your Library for  , 'The Love Story  of Giraldus."  A  Romance of the Twelfth Century  BY  Alice   Cunninghame.  Recent London cablegrams announce that the British barmaid is  not to be legislated out of existence.  It was reported sometime since  that the Hanuermau government  contemplated reforms to the licence  law that would declare the employment of girls and women in bars illegal. Home secretary Gladstone  has assured a deputatian that this  drastic step is not to be taken, the  government realizing, he said, that  any drastic provisions to check, diminish, or put an end to tqe employment of women behind the bar  might have an immediate result far  more disastrous than any mischiefs  accruing from the present system.
