THE KETTLE  VALLEY LINE  Will Be Built to the South  in Near Future.  WILL RUN BRANCH  TO MINING CAMP  Spur Will Be Run  From  the Coldwater River to  Steamboat Mountain  The Kettle Valley railway is  planning to link up Penticton  and southern Okanagan and the  Similkameen, and the latter district with the coast, by a system  of branch lines. The company  will apply to parliament next  session for an act changing its  name from The Kettle River Valley Railway Company, to the  Kettle Valley Railway Company,  the name by which it is now commonly known, and authorizing  it to construct a branch from  Penticton by the most feasible  route to a point on the international boundary at or near the  shore line of Osoosos lake.  This will connect Penticton  with the rich district directly  south, and will make the town an  important distributing point, as  all produce, etc., destined for the  coast or other parts of the province from southern Okanagan  and the Similkameen will pass  through Penticton.  The application to parliament  also provides for the construction  of two. other branches. One ot  them is from a point on the company's line already authorized,  which is understood to be either  Merritt or Penticton, by the most  direct route to or near Allison or  Penticton.    The' third branch is  v  from the Coldwater river to the  Fraser riyer and to Steamboat  Mountain mining camp. By these  branches the Kettle Valley railway company will provide transportation facilities for southern  Okanagan, Similkameen- and Nicola, and will enter the list as a  formidable rival of the V., V. &  E. railway.  Training. for Mining Men.  The new stamp-milling and  concentrating plant of the School  of Mines at the University of  Washington is now in readiness  for the short course for practical  mining men, which begins on  January 4th, aud lasts three  months. The mines building has  been newly equipped with assay  furnaces, additional balances,  power-driven sampling equipment, drafting tables and all  modern laboratory conveniences.  No examinations are required  for entrance to the short course  and the studies are so arranged  that any person interested in mining may follow them, regardless  of his previous training. There  are no charges, except for books  and materials actually used. A  full description of the course  may be obtained from Dean Mil-  nor Roberts, University of Washington, Seattle.  Instruction is given by seven  different departments under the  following subjects: The mineral industry, mining, fire' assaying, metallurgy, chemistry, mineralogy, geology, mining law,  surveying, forge, and field trips  to mines, mills and smelters.  Boy Scouts  I. The resignation of R. G, Hargreaves as Scoutmaster of our  Boy Scouts, places that corps in  an inactive condition at present,  and greatly to be regretted by all  those wbo witnessed the splendid  work perlormed by them at the  late exhibition. After much la-  borous work, self denying of  pleasure, which Scoutmaster Hargreaves could have been utilized  to his own pleasure, but willingly  given to the betterment of the  boys. It is too bad that this  friction has occurred, and all interested will feel pleased if it can  be removed and the Boy Scouts  well to the front again with renewed vigor  Assistant Scoutmaster Rev. M.  F. Hilton will take the place of  Scoutmaster, till some person will  come forward and take this position.  TRAGEDY OF A STAMP  Canadian   Twelve - Penny  Black Had Career.  In the year 1851 a 12 penny  black Canadian postage stamp  was printed bv the government  of Ottawa. The public did not  regard this sombre issue with  favor so few were issued. One  of these stamps was sent to the  Hamilton postoffice, where it was  sold to an old gentleman, who  said it was a shame to print the  Queen's picture on a stamp that  might be handled by profane  hands. Tenderly the gentleman  put it on a parcel, sending it to  a friend in the United States.  Here, in the waste basket, it  lay for some time until it was  found by a boy who had started  stamp collecting. He quickly  transferred it to his album After  a time despairing of getting a  good collection, and his fever  somewhat abating, he sold them  to a dealer. The new. owner on  looking at the catalogue, found  that what he had paid $5 for was  worth $25. Accidentally this  stamp was slipped into a 25-cent  packet, and sent to a dealer residing in Hamilton. When the  latter opened the packet, he was  astonished to find such a valuable stamp, and being honest,  wrote his friend to inform him  of what had happened, offering  him $1,200 for it. The offer was  accepted and the stamp again  changed hands.  By this time the stamp had increased in value, and not a few  came from a distance to look at  the treasure. One day an English nobleman, who, through a  friend, had heard of the stamp,  offered $1,500, which offer was  accepted. The English lord, falling in love with an American  heiress, and wishing to gain the  favor of her brother, presented  him with the stamp as a token of  his esteem. Here, in a new and  luxurious American home, it  came to a sad end, for one day  the maid, by mistake, swept the  stamp, which had accidentally  fallen out of the album, into the  fire. In an instant the stamp,  which thousands had heard of  and longed for, went up in smoke  to the broad blue sky, leaving  not a trace behind.  The Bank of England  While there is no perfect Bafety  for life or property in this world,  measures adopted by the Bank of  England to protect its treasure  against the depredations of robbers exhibit almost the limit of  human ingenuity.  Its outer doors are now so finely  balanced that a clerk, by pressing  a knob under his desk, can close  them instantly, and they cannot  be opened again except by a  special mechanism.  The bullion department of this  great British banking institution  is nightly submerged in several  feet of water by the action of  machinery. In some of the London banks the bullion departments are connected with the  manager's sleeping rooms, and an  entrance cannot be effected without setting off an alarm near this  person's head.  If, in the Bank of England, a  dishonest official during day or  night, should take even one from  a pile of a thousand soverigns,  the whole pile would instantly  sink and pool of water take its  place, besides letting every person in the establishment know of  the theft.  Organs Transposed.  One of the most remarkable  cases in the annals of medical research as regards human anatomy came under the notice of the  medical faculty of Queen's university at Kingston recently.  While demonstrating to a class  of second year medical students,  how to operate for appendicitis,  Dr. Richardson discovered the  location of the organs of his subject were completely at variance  with the location of the organs  of the normal man. The heart  was on the right side, the appendix, instead of being on the right  side, was located in a corresponding position oh the left side, and  all the other organs on the side  opposite to that on which they  are found in the make-up of the  normal man.  The phenonmenon is the first  case in which the whole internal  system ot a man has been found  misplaced. The body is that of  a man who in life was of strong  physique. Death was due to a  feyer and not of any organic  trouble.  The body was that o�� a convict  who died some time ago in the  penitentiary.  Churches Foster Matrimony  A new   branch   of instruction  has  been opened in   the  churches   in St.  Louis, Me.,   that  <>f a department of  matriony."  The purpose of the new institution  will be to bring;  about  acquaintances  which   may   lea<l to happy marriages,  to train   youn<r   men   and   women to  understand and   appreciate  the duties  and   responsibilities   of   the   married,  state, and to prevent the sort of   marriages which comes to an end on   default day with the words,    'decree for  plaintiff.*  The old   fashioned   church   social  or oyster supper used to be a rallayinK  place, but is not scientific  enough' to  suit modern experts.  These gatherings are for the purpose of hearing a lecture, but opportunity for the ynung folks to get acquainted at the luncheon, which will  intervene between the meeting and  the evening church service.

Cheerfulness is an excelVnt  wearing quality. It has been  called thc bright weather of the  heart.  St. Andrew's Day.  Hurrah for Bonny Scotland!  Such are our thoughts and wishes, for November 30th was St.  Andrew's Day. the Patron Saint  of the northermost Kingdom of  Great Britain. And who was  St. Andrew, and what his history?  He was born in Bethsaida and  was brother to St. Peter. He  had the honor of being the first  apostle to find Christ, and to do  the missionary work of bringing  others to the MesBiah.  Stratocles had been cured by  him of a dangerous disease. Oge-  as called upon him to denounce  his faith in Christ, but rather  than do this, he suffered martyrdom on the cross His cross was  formed of two pieces of timber  crossing one another in the form  of the letter X. To this he was  tied, and on it lingered for two  days.  Certain of his relics were  brought to Scotland -**in the 4th  century by St. Regulus, and since  that time St. Andrew has been  recognized as its Patron. He is  also the Patron of the most noble  and the most ancient Order of  the Thistle, the Scottish Order  of Knighthood. He is the Patron of Russia, and the Order of  St. Andrew is the principal Russian Order of Knighthood. And  lastly he is the Patron of the  Order of the Golden Fleece,  founded by Philip the Good,  Duke of Burgundy, A. D., 1429,  and now belonging to the Austrian Empire.

rapidly taken up if the government would build houses and

more rapidly if they would put

reality investments. British Columbia offers the mining investor
one of the best fields in the world
for legitimate use of his capital
in profitable development enterprises. 	
While the mining industry of
British Columbia appears to be
taking oh new life, and enlisting
the investment of new capital,
there nfiver was a time in the
the history of the Province when
the public require to be more on
their guard against wildcat promotions. The appearance of
these regrettable accompaniments
of mining development is one of
the surest indications >of returning prosperity. There are lots
of good, sound, legitimate investments in the mining sections of
the Province, but somehow there
are always, and in every country,
unscrupulous promoters who
would rather offer the public
some rotten proposition, probably because there is more money
in it, than devote their time to
the flotation of of legitimate
projects.
I MINES AND MINING 1
« o
The Frst Thought Mine at Orient, Wash., is owned by P. Burns
& Co., Ltd., the British Columbia
operators, and is under the management of Alex Sharp, M. K. The
mine is situated on the east side of
the Kettle river, three miles northeast from Orient, on the Great
Northern railway. The mine has
been producting for the past five
years. Thirty men are employed,
and present production is about 50
tons a day, shipped to Trail  smelter.
Nov. were as follows: Granby
mines, 18,446 tons; Jackpot, 808
tons; Mother Lode, 5,998 tons; No.
7, 95 tons; Rawhide, 3,000 tons;
Snowshoe, 2,578 tons.
Those whose judgement is usually
accurate predict that the copper metal
will sell up to 14 cents before July 1.
From the IX C. Mining Record.
There ar« several ways of improving the ventilation of an adit
until a raise  has  been   made  oi
Complaints have been make to
us of the indifference with which
r,he directors of some companies,
especially those organized ostensibly for mining development, regard their duties and responsibility to the shareholders with
whose interests they are entrusted. For instance, in the case of
companies holding a bend, on a
property, the bond has been allowed to lapse, and the shareholders have lost their assets apparently without an effort on the
part of the directors to protect
them, and certainly without the
shareholders haying been called
together, the facts laid before
them, and their wishes ascertained and consulted as to the assets
behind the organization being allowed to disappear without the
shareholders being given an opportunity of protecting their
rights. This is a discreditable
state of affairs and there should
be some way of making directors
responsible for and liable to the
shareholders for such dereliction
of moral, if not legal duty.
doing these   things  is to lind the  compressor  installed.    A pipe of
money.    But speaking seriously, j WOod or metal, say ten   inches in
diameter, may be  carried well up
it is absurd to suggest that the
government can engage iu a
policy of land-clearing and then
give tbe cleared laud to settlers.
The political union of the state
of Maine with Canada is advocated by the Charlestown Daily
Guardian, which says, "It is
high time that the statesmen of
Canada give serious consideration to the possibility, to use no
stronger term, of admitting the
state of Maine to Canada." A
glance at the map is sufficient to
show that Maine belongs geographically to Canada, rather
than to the United States. Being now a foreign country, it is
to some extent also an obstacle
to the right development of our
great transportation system?,
while at the same time, the state
is shut out from development.
It will be remembered that the
executors of Miss Nightingale's
property were unable to accede to
the widely expressed desire that
her remains should be accorded a
public funeral, and the reason is
found in the following clause of
her will. 'T give my body for
dissection or post mortem examination for the purpose ot medical
science, and I request that the
directions about my funeral given
by me to my uncle, the late Samuel Smith, he observed. My
original request that no memorial
■whatever should mark the place
where lies my 'mortal coil.' I
much desire this, but should the
to the face, and the outer end extended upward like a chimney,
thus drawing in fresh and exhausting the foul air. The current may be reversed by placing
a triangular sail over the top of
the pipe, and converging to it,
adjustable to catch the wind as
its direction changes. Or, a furnace may be built at the mouth
of the adit, being constructed of
rocks plastered with mud, and
fitted with a pipe for a chimney,
the pipe from the tunnel entering
below the. grate. Start a fire,
close the door, and the draft created in the intake pipe draws the
foul air out of thc adit, fresh air
rushing in to take its place.
Discussing indifferent company
management, a contemporary
properly remarks: "Where information is denied an investor
or intending investor the wise
thing for him to do is to get out
if he is in, or keep out if he is
thinking of getting in."
\L W. Gilman, general manager
of the Canadian Rand company, has
just completed an inspection of the
company's branches in B. C.
Granby is now earning at the rate
rate of about $50,000 monthly, or
over $4 a share annually on its stock.
The company has no indebtedness,
and its cash, copper in process and
other quick assets now aggregate over
Si, 000,000. The Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company, >» which Granby
is a very large stockholder, resumed
dividends three months ago with a
payment of $1 per share. A second
dividend of like amount has just been
declared. It understood that Granby's income from this source will
amount to between $40,000 and $50,-
000 annually.  	
At the Greenwood-Phoenix bore

To Destroy Stumps.
The process of Prof. Sparks,
which it is the intention of the
management of ! the Oregon and
Washington railroad -to reduce
to pamphlet form for the purpose
of bringing it to the attention of
proposed settlers from the east,
provides for an excavation around
the stump, filling the latter with
cinders, covered with gravel or
cracked rock, on which is smeared fuel oil, covering this latter
with kindling and setting it on
fire, after which it is covered
with clay in such a manner as
not to allow the heat to escape.
Any number of stumps can be
provided for, and the time required for eradication averages
from two to three weeks.
There is one man in the United States who has perhaps heard
more women's set'rets than anyxother man or woman in the
country. These recrets are not secrets of guilt or shame, but
the s-jcrets of suffering, and they have heen confided to Dr.
14. V. fit:rce in the hope and expectation of advice and help.
'1 hut fi".< of these women have been disappointed in their ex-.

nil iv.imcn Created by Dr. I'ierce have been absolutely and

c.'ses treaied wer* numbered by hundreds only. But when
t'at record yppliei to the treatment of more than half-a- million wo::ien, in a practice of over 40 years, it is phenomenal,

There is no cleaner or more
profitable pursuit in life than
mining, when in the hands of
men of responsibility and integrity. Everv dollar raised from
the mine and added to the wealth
of the nation comes without the
injury to fellowmen resulting
from competitive trade and industry, which so often thrive on
the misfortunes of others. If an
investor in a mine would have
his prospective investment valued and reported on bv a reputable
mining engineer, and followed
his advice, just as he would have
a valuation made of a prospective mortgage investment, he
would find that nine times out of
ten he would make more money
out of the mining investment,
than in the case of  mortgages or
Italian workmen in America
sent sixty million dollars to Italy

'To the outer world she appeared  a  fine  lady, but  indoors  she gofe up late, walked about the  house with a pa jama jacket over  sher shoulders, and  always wore  ihideous hair curlers to preserve  Ithe curls of   which  she  was so  , proud."   Returning from his day's  work Crippen found her awaiting  ,him untidy, jealous and exacting.  He also found that she drank, a  failing of which he had a great  Phorror.  'On her return from America  i she boasted of a rich man who  had offered to provide for her  and threw in her husband's teeth  a certain American who professed  to love her.  "For some weeks before January 31, he had but one thought,  how to get rid of his wife. She  suffered from indigestion, for  which she was taking tablets  containing bismuth and coated  with sugar. Throughout January she was more trying and  troublesome even than usual.  Crippen's patience become exhausted. He knew the properties  of hyoscin from his experience in  lunatic asylums, and determined  to do away with his wife by giving her a controlling dose of this  deadly poison.

Mackenzie King, minister of labor, were called upon by officers  of the Dominion trades and labor  congress and leaders of various  international unions of Canada.  The object of the deputation  was to present resolutions adopted at the annual congress at Ft.  William. The deputation was  headed by William Glockling of  Toronto, president of the congress, and included A. Verville,  M, P. P.; T. G. O'Donohue and  M. P. Draper, secretary.  The resolutions of the congress  which were presented to the premier will be taken into his consideration. The most important  were as follows:  "That the trades and labor  congress is opposed to the enactment of a compulsory arbitration  law.  "That steps should be taken to  arrange for an international peace  conference at which an attempt  should be made to establish a  universal policy of opposition to  international warfare.  "That it is the unanimous desire of the working classes of  Canada that there should be federal legislation regarding cooperation in order to save them  from the clutches of capital.  "That Provisional antomy  should be conseryed.  "That the age of children eligible for employment should be  raised to sixteen years.  ���'That there should be legislation making compulsory the  weekly payment of wages in cash  and in cases where employes are  discharged or where the employe  leaves the service of his employer, all wages due must, be paid  within 24 hours, the employer  being held responsible for expenses consequent upon his failure  to comply with the law properly."  Says the Montreal Witness: "History will justify Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  and the broad spirit and direction of  his statementship, but in the meantime true Canadians of every nationality should uphold him, with redoubled energy, against the attack of men  who would, above all, overthrow his  good work in the promotion of good  will and mutual understanding between  the races."

A tall, well-built man, with dark hair, closely trimmed beard, calm, observant  eyes, gentle, and with thu case and polish of a fine stock intensified by the culture  that comes from travel���this is .Sir Gilbert Parker, Canada's great novelist. In  the famous city of (Quebec he was born in IStJ'J, the son of an officer ii��ihe Royal  Artillery and the descendant of many generations of fighting mt&i. Ji seemed  natural that he, too, should woo thu cannon, but he had his etfe iii^he cassock  and was educated lor the church. He was ordained u deacon but his train of I  thought was switched off the clerical track when he began to'lecture on English  literature at Trinity College, Toronto.  In 1SSG he went to Ausf-alia for his health, and as one of the editors of tlio  "Sydney Herald" had a roving commission to study the South Sea Islands and  their people. In his three and a half years in Oceanica he broadened in mind and  grew more sturdy in body; he wrote and lectured, became interested in tlie sfage  and with wide-open eyes saw life under new conditions. The literary harvest uf  this period was an adaptation of Goethe's " Faust," produced in Sydney, another  play "Tlie Vendetta," and two books of travel. Then lie went to Kngland. and  his real literary genius had its first outcropping in his works of fiction.  His remarkable short stories "Pierre and his People," opened up the literary  dark continent of the Hudson Bay country. They were fresh, crisp, vigorous  and virile tales; the held was new, the treatment masterly, the character drawing  vital, real and sympathetic, and the open-air atmosphere bracing and tingling aa  a cold-water plunge. They had the same note of surcness, tlie same iiii<|iiesti<>[ied  revelation of the coining of a great writer, that marked the debut of Kipling in his  "Plain Tales from the Hills." Most authors have a special sentimental fondness  for their first-born, but Sir Gilbert bought back and suppressed his first novel "The  Chief Factor," after more than fifty thousand copien had been sold. Of his twenty  or more books, perhaps "The Right of Way" has inspired most discussion and  added most to his prestige and popularity. *  This famous novelist, journalist, lecturer, poet, dramatist and member of  Parliament, lives in London, in the aristocratic seclusion of Carlton House Terrace,  a short street closed at one end, so that the rumble of traffic comes only like tho  surge of the sea heard at a distance. In a study on the fourth floor Sir Gilbert  does his literary work. Success, which turns the beads of many of fortune's favorites, simply gives new poise, ease and dignity to qthers. Simple, strong and  unaffected, Sir Gilbert carries with an unconscious grace the honors he so justly w..m,  2otcxed nicflrrHiii; to JUt of tic Parliament of Canada, in tio j ear 1SO0, ty W. C.

For many years  tlie Liberal leader's locks have  been gray, but we have become  so familiar with his upright figure, his well poised head, his  sonorous voice, his tremendous  energy, his personal magnetism,  his abundant power of brain and  heart, that we often find ourselves thinking of him as still  almost a young man. Marty  times "the imminent retirement  of Laurier"  has been reported by  his opponents, but he has tired  out younger and ppparently  stronger men, and seems to fie  entering his 70tb year "as fresh  as a daisy, aud twice as natural."  This is no doubt partly due to  the plainness and temperateness  of his manner of living:, and partly due to his sunny and cheerful disposition, for there is no  doubt that tin? wise man was  right when he said that "a merry  heart doeth good like medicine.���  Montreal Witness.

Armstrong is one of  the men who holds strongl}' to  the opinion that old Carinoo will  yet come into its rights. Cariboo,  in his opinion, has been robbed  of all that could be easily taken,  but little has been done to, develop the great ore bodies that  contributed their fragments to  the placer claims. Mr. Armstrong-  has boen investigating in tbe  vicinity of Barkerville and has  taken several claims on quartz  ledge's in a section that has been  walked over, driven over, and  even lived over. There wan a  small Chinatown over one of his  claims.  Mr. Armstrong is convinced  that hexhas discovered one of the  mother lodes of Cariboo. One of  these contributed to make Cariboo one of the richest placer  fields in the world's history. It  is only 300 miles from the C. P.  R., and the G. T. P. engineers  are surveying within 70 miles of  it. Since 1855 the placer fields  of Cariboo have yielded about  370,000,000 in gold, but the quartz  has been overlooked. Ledges  such as those on Mr. Armstrong's  property, if found in more adver  tized quartz fields would, in hi|  opinion, cause a. stampede. O;  course, to get the best results  better transportation facjlitie  must be provided. Camps with :  smaller possible output have beei  gi ven transportation facilities an  have been developed on a pay in  basis. Where placer gold ha'  been found there have beeu lode;  and tbe lodes in Cariboo must b)  rich. jJH  Iu the section where  Mr. Arm'  1  strong has made bis locations, 3]  miles long by 15  wide, there ar  three great mineral zones traver��|  ing the country  northwest   am.  southeast.    Almost   every creeV  in the district has paid tbe place  miners,   some   of   them   having  proved   very rich, proving   thai  for a distance of 30 miles ther  must be mineralized veins,    Mr  Armstrong says all that Caribo<  needs is better transportation ane!  thorough   prospecting   to   mak  greater fields than ever.
