UIIUMLLU   1LLLU UI  REGENT LEGISLATION  J. H. Schofield. M. P. P.  for Ymir,  turned home from his sessional duties.  Victoria on Monday last.   Speaking  the business transacted during the  tting of the legislature Mr.  Sohofieid  atecl that the Timber Act was anion?  e most important legislation brought  [own and it wiii go a long way towards  ^uaiiziug conditiona between the Coast  dthe Interior, whioh up to the present  ve been somewhat jug-handled. Hith  to there has been two official scale*  ������*���������  use, the B. O. and the Doyle, the for-.  )&x applying to the Coast and the lat  (r to the9 Interior.   The B. O. will now  \ used generally throughout the prov-  ce.   The stumpage is now on whe  tght be called a sliding scale, in whicl  th the operators and the province will  are jointly in any prosperity or de-  'tession as the case may he, and to my  ind is an eminently fair settlement of  e situation..  The Water Act is also another very  i por taut bill brought in by the min-  fter of lands, and will do a great deal  [iwards settling many vexed question  inch have been the cause of much dis-  i  e for years,  and I have no   doubt  hen once the act gets working proper-  those interested will appreciate its  any good points.  The Municipal Act is one which has  en largely framed on the report of  ,e Municipal Commission which visit-  many of the  principel  centers in  "anada "ond the United States, and is  usidered'to.be the kernel.of, the ad-  lanced  legislation on municipal mat-  T_c 'advice of the best municipal  perte  throughout the   provinoe has  en obtained by allowing the bill to  f^main on  the table f<jr  the past year,  he new bill will practically eliminate  [ll the inequalities whioh are bound to  peep into any act through amending it  ���������om year to year.   One particularly  ood point to my mind is the fact that  tie governmt-nt can exercise the power  l veto over any money borrowing by-  w and in so doing places its hall mark  n those  which pass inspection.   The  [aoc of   government supervision over  y-laws of this nature does away  with  y poBBiole r'.Bk of them being attaok-  |a in the courts and consequently re*  loves the element of risk from a broker's staudpoiut iii disposing of the de-  UtM'GS.  The Publio Schools Act will material-  assist rural school trustees in flnanc-  g.auit provides for loans being ad-  nced by the. gavornmout before taxes  ro collected, besides soveral other min-  il* pijiurs whioh will grea'ly aBBist in  inducting school huBinsBB throughout,  io district.

The close,  season for bear io tbe Ymir riding hns  beeu removed entirely and people may  now trap them nt will. Settlers may  also obtain free permits to shoot,and  carry firearms on their own and neighbors' property which was not al'owed  by the old act. Ia farther connection  with the Game Act, it has bean brought  to mv attention that a report if? current  that there will be no shooting at nil this  year. There is absolutely nothing in  this. There has been no chauge in fhe  Aot in this particular, and it is now as  it has been for some years past, the Act  olacing all game in close season which'  is removed by order-in-conccil and the  ���������pen and olose Beasons established for  everything.   As far as I know the only  possible change may be that the open  reason on Wiiiow Grouse may be on  )ctober 1st in some peetions of the province instead of Sept. 1st, which iu my  mind, would be a decided benefit, as the  birds are getting scarcer every year and  really are rather on the small side on  the latter date.  Referring to the Doukhobors, the act  provides that they mnst register births  and deaths and .the children are compelled to attend sohool.   The provisions  *���������  for enforcing the aot provide for the  attacement of community property in  lieu of fineB for any infractions, and  makes every male adult resident iu the  COnimunitv     the   fi'narj'lifln     nf     Qvmr>v  woman and child residing, therein  The appropriation of $80,000 for Ymir  this year may seem rather small in tbo  eyes of many who have been accnt.lv lined to"a much larger grant, and. means  that we will have ������o confine ourselves  fo theraamtenanoe and repairs o$ the  existing-roads and postpone extensions,  for a time at least.  ���������*������*���������  Kecord-Breaking Turnout Tests  Capacity   pf the Mercantile Hall  ���������Send for our prices on furniture, we  pay the freight.

As a result of the work of: Local Irishmen the celebration of St. Patrick's day on Tuesday turned out to be one  of the biggest complimentary dances ever held in Creston.  The morning of Tuesday dti^ned bright and fair and  there was every reason to expect a iarge crowd but when the  hourarrived the crowd that assembled was far in excess of  the most sanguine expectations.

Largje Shamrocks were arranged in plapes about the hall and  a large one flanked on each side by a golden harp adorned  the extreme back of the stage.  The committee had procured . little souvenir flags and  presented one to .each person present, and the ladies received  programs witH pencils attached. T)_e programs were print-*  ed on yellow paper in green ink, and the, pencils were attached with yellow or green cord, with pencils to match.  vThe orchestra from the Rex (Theater, Cranbrook had  been procured and under the able management of Madam  Norman rendered, a program of dances' and instrumental  which has established for them a reputation, as artists of the  hightest order. "- - ���������-.--. -   . ^    -  Andy Miller as floor manager superintended a program of over forty numbers, (many of which were encored)  wit-out the very, least friction and to the manifest satisfac-  ti n of every dancer in the hall.  Rev. W. C. Blake delivered a five minutes address  ou the life o_ St. Patrick, and with his own happy  style  quite  capitulated  his  audience.  As well as the dance music the orchestra suppli  ed three very fine numbers on the program. One a  selection by the orchestra, also a solo by Mr. Cyril  Newton which was particularly well rendsred and met  with an emphatic encore and the other was a xylophone solo by Mr. Adair which was also roundly applauded." ��������� ..'''.'���������- \ /  Promptly at 12 o'clock refreshments were served  and it was a most good natured if large crowd which  sat down to the lunch * of sandwiches and cake and  coffee.                                                        .    ������������������' 1   '. .

The feeling in the meeting was most  harmonious from the very beginning,  and tbe association has a splendid set  of office-s. Those present manifested  the greatest interest, freely entering  into the discussion of" the various  questions that arose and courteously  asking questions relative ��������� to the subjects about whioh they had any  doubt. The meeting was addressed  by Mr. E. Mallandaine and Guy Low-  enberfr, their very lucid remarks being  listened to with the very keenest interest.  Messrs.

These schoola  have been well attended bv bugv _i*���������w.  ers and have proven a great success  ���������where ever held. Busy men have considered the time well spent and would  not have missed them for anything.  They realize that they can well make  up for the time spent in the more intelligent  pruning  of their  orchards.  This was particularly noticeable to  those just starting wbei-e the foundation structure uf the tree was being  made, .although those with their orchards well advanced were better enabled to realize the importance of  keeping their trees open and   strong  Smith   and Stanley,  of   Creston   also and that the thinning out was more  gnijljg^  Mr. J.

Sometimes a determined man  trickles a job -of draining wet  lund in winter. ?Springy land  floes uot -'-hold-, much frost and  can be worked almost any time,  but a hired man who will dig  drains in winter is a Jewel Indeed.--The'usual plan is to pro-,  vide some work around the buildings. There are fruit and vegetables to.pick over and grade,  floors, locks, gates, fences, stalls  and pens to be repaired, whitewashing ond painting to be done  Inside? wagons nnd tools to mend  and put in working order. Tools,  knives nnd cutters need to bo  ground, tool rooms and workshops to bo put in order, fruit  barrols and boxes to bo cleaned  and fitted with hoads or topB,  granaries to bo made rat proof,  collars to bo enlarged, feeding  troughs and cow stalls to bo  mndo, small chicken coops a'nd  ' nests to bo got ready.

Haviug gained some faint sc-tio*^ ot  the extent of the lesser solar system,  which occupies a small corner of the  stellar' system, wo must work outward  from that beginning. Let ns take for  our unit of measurement tbe space  which separates tbe earth from tbe  bun and let the 92,000,000 miles of this  distance be represented-in our minds  by a single inch, ln proportion tbe  _un itself must-be pictured by a tiny  ball Jess than one hundredth part of an  inch in diameter, while our earth  must be a mere speck less than one  J.en-thousandth of an inch in diameter.  And this little sun and this minute  earth must be just an incb asunder.  Following out the same idea, Mercury and Venus, being closer to the  sun than we are, have to be less than  an inch away from him, while Jupiter  will be five inches off, Saturn will be  I ten inches off, Uranus will be over  A ^ , , . __ nineteen inches off, Neptune will be  of .Ojiniaga,    "Mexico,     women   and   children     rushing  to  almost"thirty inches off.

The question arises next, What will  t,1jr xt ���������D-e t*16 proportionate size of the stellar  system on this same scale of^measure-  ment? If the solar system is to be  funiprispd ������ith a hoop not two yard**  alio*��������� Ljw wide n vpii-<> ^imuid \\i������  allow to the surrounding sy&u-ui ot  stars, "our universe?" How near will  be tbe nearest of outlying stars? And  the answer is sufficiently startling, if  the sun is reckoned to be one inch  away from our earth, if Neptune is  reckoned to be less than three feet  away from the sun, then on^the same  scale the star which lies closest of all  outer stars In the whole universe to us,  A lntin     fonf-n *iri     K\r    vintviA.     miiaf*     Yic,  reckoned   as  lying  at  a  distance  of  i about three and a half miles.   And between the two���������nothing; at least nothing in the shape of a star.   An occasional comet may lag slowly along in  the darkness, finding its "way froni one  sun system to another, and dark bodies,   cooled suns,   may possibly   float  here or" there unseen by us,  but of  stars radiant with beat and light none  is found in tbat wide area.  I    Astronomical writers sometimes talk  cf stars "in the vicinity" of the sun,  aud this is what is meant by "vicinity."    Think of the distances implied.  Our whole solar system is flrst brought  down  into-a small  circle two yards  across���������every inch iu those yards standing for more than 90,000,000 miles���������  aud then on every side and above and  below   is   an   encompassing   void   of  'three and a-half miles, every inch of  those" miles  again representing  more  than 90,000,000 miles.    And then  we  come upon one gleaming star.    Only  oue quite so near.   Another star in tbe  sun's "vicinity," known as 01 Oygul,  would lie at a distance of seven miles,  and the brilliant Sirius would be over  ten miles off.   Others must be placed  at   distances   of  twenty  miles,   flfty  miles, 100 miles.    It is easy to start  with a list of these figures.   It Is not  easy to say  where one should stop.  That the starry'.'system has limits we  do not doubt, but to define those limits  is not possible.   On such a scale as is.  given   above   those   limits   certainly  I would not He within nrdistance or 100  ''miles' nor-of 1,000 miles.  It is believed thnt somo dim stars,  barely to bo detected, moy bo 10,000  .' times as far away as. our sun's nearest  | neighbor. Alpha'"Centa'iirl, and this at  ouce gives, even on owr much reduced  ccale/a lino from thp center of 85,000  miles. Suppose that the limits of the  stellar v. Bystem lay somowhoro about  thero. Tblrty-Uyo thousand miles each  way from thp center would moau a dl-  nmoter for tho wholo of 70,000 milea,  lmagino n starry system 70,000 miles  across from side to side, each inch In  thoso miles .representing 02,000,000 of  real miles, nnd somowhoro in tho midst  ef It our Biuull solar systom, just two  'yards ncrosjii separated from all other  Bturs by u wldo blank of threo or four  miles.  Thnt would be etupenfloua enough.  But wo havo no reaBou whatever for  (supposing thnt tho limits of our oni*  vorso do Ilo thore.
