In young thriving .unincorporated  town's' where there is. a blending of  pioneer improvisions with metropolitan .conveniences, much-.detail Avork  that should fall to the lot of a municipal council is shouldered on to the local  board of trade, and it was Avith such  work that 'the Sons of Martha in the  Hedley -Board of Trade wrestled for  over two mortal hours on Monday  night, while the Sons of Mary were at  home Avith their babes and spouses or  doing- the Tam o' Shunter and Soutar  Johnny act at their favorite inn.  The attendance was not large, but  those present Avere good workers and  approached the various subjects, with  open minds-.  A batch of correspondence, relevant  and irrelevant, engaged the early part  of the meeting.  The cost of procuring a mining map  of the camp was discussed at length.  The matter of a cemetery also came  in for consideration and various locations were discussed pro and con. The  secretary was instructed to Avrite the  government agent in reference thereto.  The matter of procuring mineral  specimens for display at the Westminster, Victoria and Spokane fairs, as  well as permanent collection for the  board of trade rooms, came up, and a  committee consisting of Messrs. Gladden, Boeing and Oliver A\-as appointed  to take the matter iu hand.  For street improvement a committee  consisting c>f the president, secretary  and John Love was appointed to collect funds and undertake the work.'  The injustice done the camp and district in the compilation of mining statistics by the provincial mineralogist,  and-the use made of it by the editor of  the Mining Record, came in for lengthy  discussion and strong denunciation.  The sorest spot avus the senseless method of grouping mining divisions,  merging Osoyoos returns with those  of the Boundary divisions and thereby  robbing Camp Hedley of due credit for  its annual production of gold. The  map of mining divisions sent out witli  the- report, in which Hedley and Phoenix Avere not to be found, Avas also  condemned. As the representative was  taking up this matter with the Mines  department it was suggested the Board  make a strong push to compel reform  iu the compilation of statistics as well.  The secretary Avas instructed to write  the Minister of Mines for the production of the Osoyoos Mining Dt\Tisioii  alone, in 1906.  The committee to procure rooms  AVt-re authorized to lease the shop formerly occupied by H. A. Wright, for  six months.  An altogether mistaken  impression  seems to exist in  some parts of the  province that the Similkameen.distriet  is only a pastoral country.   It is true  that it does coyer large, and,important  tracts .of "agricultural, grazing and fruit  ���������growing lands,  and   that  Keremeos,  Penticton and Osoyoos are localities  Avithiri the   riding,   that have   made,  ���������names-for themselves sis producers of  fruit of various kinds that are unsurpassed for size, flavor and other equalities that go to make up perfect fruits;  and that the ftortile  uplands of Rock  Creek,  Rock Mountain,  Sidley Mountain  and tlie region  about Princeton  are the homes of prosperous farmers.  But nevertheless, if this district is not  entitled to  stand  in   the   front  row  among the mining districts of British  Columbia, where is there one that is ?  And yet the 'Similkaineen is Avrorig-  fully made to appear in the"columns"of  a prominent mining magazine published at the Coast as producing only six  ounces of bullion in 1900,  valued at  $12A,  and the Minister of Mines'  report, compiled by the Provincial Mineralogist, is quoted by the same, magazine to back up the misrepresentation.  Bear in mind that Similkameen Electoral district is 90 miles long and will  Mr. W. T. Atberton has been appointed fire Avarde-n under the ''Bush  Fires Act, and also game warden under the "Game Protection Act". Some  were trying to convince him that it  was up to him to climb the mountain  where that fire Avas raging, bat realizing that the absence of Ava.ter and  other obstacles Avould make the task a  pretty stilt' one, he concluded that the  cost of putting it out would be more  than the government Avould stand for.  Meanwhile he is ready to receive any  information as to who is responsible  for starting it.  average: more than 40 miles wide. It  comprises all of the southern portion  of Yale lying east and west between a  point on the international boundary  south of the confluence of Rock creek  Avith the Kettle river, and the 120th  meridian. Its width on the eastern  end stretches from the international  boundary clear north for 60 miles to  Cherry Creek and Fire Valley ; Avhile  on the west end it extends from the  boundary line to Otter Valley, taking  in Bear creek.  Until less than a year ago Avhen the  V. V. & E. began to lay its rails, not a  foot of public railway track was to be  found in the whole vast territory  bounded as aboA-e described, although  it is more than forty years ago that  the district was a heavy producer of  bullion in the form of placer gold and  platinum, the Rock Creek placers employing about 2,000 men before Williams Creek was struck, and being  continued Avith varying success for  many years after. It Avas at White  Bar, on the north fork of Rock Creek,  that about $60,000 was taken out by a  feAv miners as late as the middle seventies, and as the placer period is  mostly the fore-runner of the more  stable and rc-immevati\*e lode mining,  it remained for the Smiilkaniecn Electoral district to give to the province  its first producing quartz mine in the  Cariboo at Camp McKinney, which  without railway transportation and  under great disadvantage, turned out  $1,700,000 in bullion and paid $559,000  of it in dividends, and is operating  to-day.  Neither is the mineral bearing portion of the riding confined to any particular locality, but it is to be found  from end to end of the riding.  The extreme) eastern portion is represented by the West Fork of Kettle  River, Avbere the unique spectacle has  been witnessed for the past three years  of properties shipping ore by wagon in  some cases a distance of over 50 miles  and paying profits to the oAvners. On  the West Fork alone are the Sally,  Duncan, Rambler, Bounty and Carmi,  all of Avhieh have shipped ore under  those disadvantages and paid profits  to the owners. Again, in the basin of  Rock Creek are the Victoria and the  Dayton, Avhich have both shipped, the  former teaming to Penticton 56 miles  and the latter to Midway about 20  miles. Extensive development is also  going on at the Leroi, hoav under bond  to a Phoenix syndicate which is counting on shipping ore by teaming it over  to the V. V. & E. at Bricleville.  Camp McKinney,'near the divide between, the Kettle River and Okanagan,'  has already been referred to, and neither is the Cariboo the' only producer  there.",. ...-.        ' - ;   . V \  The, Okanagan is represented by  Camp I^airview and Kruger Mountain  in both of Ayhich a great deal-of work  has been clone.  But present   production.'from' lode  mining in Siniiikameen Electoral district is best represented at Hedley on  the Similkameen  river' itself,  .where  for three years,  after heavy, expense  for i nstalling,plant, forty stainps 11ave  been almost constantly at work turning out- bullion from  vast ore bodies  that are mined by quarrying and by  breaking do vvn fro in stopes opened up  by- tunnels.    It is  true,  the  tonnage  mined here does "not compare with tlie  tonnage of Boundary mines ;   and it is  also true that until railway transportation Avas secured and for some time  thereafter,   none   of   the   Boundary  mines that are  iioav dividend payers  had,.produced', a single  ounce,  Avhile  here for three years,  Avithout railway  transportation,  the Nickel Plate has  been'a'big .producer.    In fact the wonder is that'the owners of..the Nickel  -Plate group faced the enormous outlay  of installing plant before   a railway  came.   Tlie only explanation of why  they (lid so was that exceptional profits Avere in sight and are being realized, or they would not have-, done.so.  Unlike the stock-property mines of the  Boundary where:financial statements  are .prod need and rate roL dividends declared, the Nickel Plate group is in the.  hands of a close corporation and nothing is knoAvn of the percentage of  profit made.   True, the law requires a  report to be made of the tonnage mined, and from the report of J. R. Brown,  gold commissioner, it is seen  that the  Nickel Plate and Sunnysides, claims of  the Nickel Plate, group, turned out 35,-  000 tons iu 1906,  and  but for the disgracefully jumbled-up state in  which  mining statistics are presented by the  provincial mineralogist for the Minister of Mines' report,  the Similkameen  would get some credit for its production, instead of being misrepresented  as producing only 6 ounces, valued at  $12-1.    Knockers may ask why there  are no more mines than the Nickel  Plate producing in Camp Hedley, but  Avhy do they not give those other properties the same time after transportation that Boundary properties   took  before   they   became producers,   and  this applies also to Olalla and Keremeos Camps as Avell as Camp Hedley  and the wonderful showings on Bear-  Creek up the Tulameen.    There the  Granby have a property that W. Y.  Williams places before their Boundary  holdings.  But enough has been stated to sIioav  that Siinilkameen's claim to rate with  the best mining districts in the province is Avell-foundecl.  PHCEN1X  SPUR   FINISHED.  Contractor Gallagher Now Free to Dig  North of Keremeos.  The visit'of Contractor T. .1. Gallagher to licrUey a short time ago, and  the object of his mission hither,' has  awakened a frosh interest in him and  his doings, lor people in similkameen.  Concerning his latest Avork at Phoenix in., putting in a spur for the Great  Northern to. the Gran by's Victoria  shaft, the Phoenix Pioneer has the  folloAving:   '  "Last Tuesday T. J. Gallagher, having completed his work of grading "on  the hew Great Northern spur to the  Granny's Victoria shaft, paid oft'the  men, some 91) in number, and they departed for other fields.  . "The new spur is about a mile and a  half long, not including a side track at  the end for a Avarehouse, and a second  track at the end of the switchback for  the new powder magazine. Some of  theWork avus exceedingly heavy, and  '.\vhile,a.ll of it ovi-rlooks the. city, making it bad for blasting, it is to Mr.  Gallagher's credit- that not a man Avas  seriously hurt on the job, and the  damage, done from blasting would be  coA-ered by a $50 bill. Some idea of  the importance of this spur may be  had when it is remembered that the  cost to the railAvny company, Avhen the  spur is finally ready to haul ore, Avill  be not far from $100,000.  '^As soon as the graders were done,  the steel gang Avas on hand and has  already begun the work of putting  doAvn the rails, which Avill be pushed  forward as rapidly-as- possible. There  is one trestle, over a fork of Twin  creek, near tlie. Granby stables, which  will be constructed by Porter Bros.  This trestle is to be 532 feet long and  from 30 to 50 feet.in height. As soon  as the steel reaches the site of the  trestle, the timbers Avill be hauled in  and put together in a short time.  Ample, provision is made for sidings  on the spur at the ore bins for the facilitating of handling the ore clumps.  "Near the upper end of this spur the  Great Northern and C. P, R. tracks  are so close that if Uncle Jim Hill Avas  on his private car there, and Sir  Thomas Shauglmessy Avas also on his  oAvn track at that point, they could  shake hands and congratulate each  other on the immense ore tonnage that  they Avould each get from that Victoria shaft in the future."  ADJOURNED SCHOOL MEETING.  BUSH FIRES COMMENCING.  Mountain Tops East of Sterling Creek  are Ablaze,  and Air Full  of Smoke.  This year we hiwe been congratulating ourselves on  the clearness of the  atmosphere and immunity  from bush  (ires, but last week shewed that a great  change in this respect  can come A'ery  suddenly, for the air had become epiite  smoky from a bush fire, that started up  on Thursday last on the. mountains to  the east of Sterling cree;k. After nightfall the. blaze is distinctly visible from  the streets.    While it is reported that  some campers had been up there ( although nothing definite has yet been  learned concerning them ) it appeared  very much as if lightning had been the  cause, for the fire Avas first noticed on  Thursday forenoon a few minutes after  a sharp thunder-clap, and avms confined  to a small spot,   the smoke resembling  somewhat that from a  vigorous camp  fire.    No  heed Avas paid  to it at the  time but by the next   morning   the  whole mountain top appeared to be  covered.    Even had a sufficient force  been on hand the first day,  to get it  under control,  the absence of water  Avould have made it a difficult  task.  If the. fire was the result of carelessness on the part of campers, no effort  should be spared to find out Avho were  the guilty parties and deal Avith them  as the law provides.  OAving to insufficient attendance the  annual school meeting for the LoAver  Similkameen school district was not  held on the date specified by the Act,  but an adjourned meeting was held on  Saturday evening, July 27th.  The trustees elected were Wr. J.  Manery, D. McOnrdy and E. H. Coult-  hiird.  A great hardship has been experienced by the people in that section  avIio have children e^f school age, and  who, OAving to there be.-ing an insufficient number of children of school age  to keep up the necessary attendance,  have been deprived of the advantages  of a school.  Last year special effort in their behalf Avas made liy the representative,  Mr. Sliatford, and as a result the  school Avas re-opened.  If the section men on the V. V. &��������� E.  are stationed at Dehnar, and any of  them have families, it A\rill help out  the situation.  It is unfortunate that residents avIio  have no children should be indifferent  about the maintenance of a school.  A MEAN ADVANTAGE.  The miners in Cobalt don't think  they got a square deal during the recent strike. While negotiations were  pending for a, settlement, the. good  people of Cobalt, fearing tumult and  rioting, appealed to the local government to shut off the booze. The provincial secretary, W, J. Hanna, accordingly took steps by issuing orders  to all and sundry including theraihvay  and express companies, Avhich were  prohibited from taking any liquor in.  In this Avay the men got awfully dry,  and Avhen they were told that things  would be no wetter until the strike  was settled, they settled. ���������THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   AUGUST 8,   1907.

"The evil that men do lives after  them, the good is ' ol'fr interred Avith  their bones; so let it he Avith" the.  Semlin-Ootton-Martin administration  of nearly a decade ago. With the  best of intentions to promote the interests"of"the" province, they Avent to  Avork to"do things according to their  lights, and the fanatics of the French  revolution whose mania for change  led them to alter the calendar and the  names of the months, Avere scarcely  more absurd in some of their acts,  than AA'ere the legislators in this province avIio succeeded the Turner g'ov-  ernineiit. Mining divisions and their  boundaries Avere changed, by them  right nod left on the plea of greater  public convenience, which in many instances turned out to he the A'ery opposite. Hut a. species of almost van-  dalistic wantonness that has wrought  no end of mischief was the senseless  mg   with    geugi-.-i]ihic-al    names,  that compilation of statistics in tables  V and IX is viewed it takes on an uglier look and almost seems as if the  effort'at mystification had been successful because of its deliberateness;  for Avhy could not the production of  each mining division have been given  separately and, with it, an enumeration of the mines that contributed to  that production.  Another feature of this mines report that shows remissness on the  part of the compiler is the map purporting to show the mining divisions  and tOAvns which they contain. The  Osoyoos mining division in which  Camp Hedley is located shoAVS ranching centres like Osoyoos, Okanagan  Falls and Keremeos where never an  ounce of lode gold, (or any other mineral for that part although that is not  saying that there Avill riot be) has ever  been produced, and Hedley which produced all the lode, gold that was produced in the Osoyoos mining division  in 1906 (probably half a million) is not  t<i be found in it. Neither is Phoenix  Avhich is responsible for bv far the  greater portion of British Columbia's  copper output, to be. found in either  of the Boundary divisions. Such a  map might be acceptable to the historical societies or the. archives, but to be  sent out in the year of grace 1907 Avith  the mines report for 1900 indicates a  degree of somnolence, that is amazing.

When mining men  speak or hear of the Sivnilkameen they  invariably think of the basin drained  by the Siniilkanieen River and the  area, contiguous thereto, .and they expect the Osoyoos dixt'-iet to designate  in like manner the district ahout  Osoyoos Lake.  To show the length to Avhich absurdity in nomenclature in the interior of the province has gone it will  suffice, to give a few instances: Hedley is the pivotal point of the Siniilka-  iiH-eu, being situated 011 the Similkameen Hiver ahout equidistant from  its source and its mouth, and so far as  mining iu the basin drained by the  Siiuilkanieen is concerned this camp  stands pre-.-.-einiueiit as its greatest producer, and yet, strange to relate, it is  not loc.--.ted in the. present Sitnilkn-  nieen mining division Lot in tlie Osoyoos. \crnon is in the Osoyoos land  division although situated 111) miles  north of Osoyoos, and Osoyoos isn't,  but is in the.

To those avIio are deeply interested in  the advancement of the province and  particularly in the development of its  mineral resources, the  announcement  that the British Columbia Copper Co.  had declared a dividend of 25 cents per  share with  15 cents extra or 20 per  cent on the capital stock, will be gratifying.    The Granby has  been  paying  them regularly for about t-Avo years at  the rate of 12 per cent per annum  on  capital stock, find the Dominion Copper Co.  is getting ready  to join  the  diA-idend-payers in a very short while.  All these are from Boundary ores that  the provincial  mineralogist   just ten  years ago this summer,  Avouldn't admit avus ore"at all, but just  "mineralized country rock."   The same gentleman didn't see the Nickel Plate, that  time for it AA'asn't discovered  until a  year later, but if he had seen the stuff  that the forty stamps in the Daly Reduction Co's mill in Hedley have been  pounding on for three years, he would  likeAvise have called  it  "mineralized  country rock".     Nevertheless  it  has  been turning out bullion since the first  drop of the stamps from gold-bearing  ore, mined from  glory holes.     That  the average- A'alue per ton,   even with  the. high price of copper Avhich  is at  present   boosting Bonndary   ores,   is  much in excess of that mined  by the  Boundary dividend-payers,   is generally conceded; and  by  the time the  Similkameen has  had eight years of  raihvav  tiansportation   and   a plant   __,,.,..���������  . .,  , .    .,  ' L /^AAINU   to a,  rapid decrease in the water  that will treat   as   large,   a   tonnage,   V   supply, it is necessary to begin economjz-  mg water to the fullest extent m order that the  some idea may be had of  what  Camp   works may be kept running throughout the  season.

Mr. E. D, Boeing has improved his  residence on Kingston avenue: Avith a  neat fence, and laid out a huvn Avhich  should be in good shape next summer.  The Government have set a good example to house-holders in the matter  of fencing by putting fences around  the school and lock-up. The contractors put up the former, and constable  Sproule looked after fencing the latter.  John Lind has bought out ChaS;  Peterson's interest in the Great Northern Hotel, but John Peterson still  retains his interest and the firm -name  will new be knoA\uv as Peterson and  Lind instead of Peterson Bros, and  Lind as formerly.  Messrs Harry and Burns Bowerman  and Ross Allen started for Medical  Lake, Wash., on. Tuesday morning.  They had t\yo saddle horses and one  pack animal, and Avould adopt the  utilitarian, "one horse shy" or ride-  and-tie method Avith variations, Avhich  is so often found a convenient Avay of  getting over the country.  Mr. A. N, S. Mildmay, representing  the Vancouver Province, came in on  Saturday's stage. On Sunday he  visited the mine and interviewed  various residents, going on to Princeton by stage on Monday. Mr. Mild-  may is a gentleman of fine literary  tastes, and enjoyed thoroughly this  his first visit to the Similkaineen.  J. J. Marks is moving with his family and effects out to the Golden Zone  this Aveek. Lumber is being taken in  to floor the cabins .and make them  more habitable. The lumber will be  teamed in from Penticton and about  five, miles of road will be made from  TAventy-mile Lake to the claims.  Mr. L. C. Wynne, of Claudet &  Wynne, assayers, Princeton is moving  to Hedley this Aveek, having obtained  considerable work from the Golden  Zone and the Kingston. These Avith  custom assaying should keep him  busy. Mr. Wynne is a competent  metallurgist and can be counted on to  give thoroughly reliable returns for  all ores sent him.  Last Aveek's heat in Hedley knocked  out anything in that line that has been  experienced here for some years, giving an average maximum for the Aveek  of 93.71. In 1906 there Avere three different weeks Avhen the average maximum for the Aveek Avent to 90 or over.  These Avere the Aveek ending July 7,  Avhen the average Avas 91, the Aveek  ending July 21 Avith an average of 90;  and the Aveek ending August 11 Avith  an average of 91.  The Daly Reduction Co. found last  Aveek's excessive heat very troublesome in many ways. The Avater in the  creek fell rapidly, effecting the power,  and the heat expanded the rails of the  traniAvay and the pipe line to the mine  to such an extent that buckling occurred in several places. What Avith  the diamond drills, machine drills and  the numerous pumps and hoists about  the Avorks, all of Avhich are driven by  compressed air, the large air compressor has had much severer Avork than  ever before, and as a result, the generator has not been running in the daytime for the past ten days.  Last Aveek Avhen the creek dried up  opposite the camp of the Geological  Survey on Twenty Mile, it became  necessary to move. This duty fell  upon Messrs Allen and Hayes, assisted  by Harry Robinson, Messrs Fraser  Campbell and Westwood, having gone  to the summit on the Hope trail to  meet Mr. Camsell on his return from  the coast and assist him in some Avork  that he hod to do there and on Whip-  saw creek. It was expected that two  or three days avouUI suffice to do it  Avhen they return to Hedley. The  new camp is on the bench above the  tipple, a. short-distance from the Hume.  See R. G-. Shter's stock of men's one  and two-piece bathing suits.  D. H. McDiarmid, employed on the  big Blake crusher at foot of upper  grizzly at the stamp mill lost a little  finger on Monday night, being caught  between two big lumps of ore.  Dr 0. W. Cross, veterinary dentist,  of Asheroft, is making a tour through  the Similkameen and Okanagan. It  will he well--for owners of horses to  meet the doctor and hear his explanation of the necessity of equine dentistry, and see the instruments Avhich he  has Avith him for Avork in that line.  The Sharpless tubular cream separator, one of the most iinproA'ed and up  to date separators on the market, is  also handled by the doctor and will be-  on exhibition at the Central Hotel, in  Kerenieos until further notice.  liY . .���������;   1  Now is tlie Time  You Require  PENTICTON NOTES  Mrs Wilmot and,daughters of Vernon are visiting Miss A.

Messrs Hatch and Winkler paid a  visit'-:to their coal locations up the  lake on Monday.

THE  HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   AUGUST  S,   1907.  A CAUSE  FOR  PERPLEXITY.  Now.  Who  Really. Saw that Blooming  Order-in-Council ?  Two Av.eeks ago the Gazette  said   on  its   first   page:    "The .Vernon   Ncavs  states   that   an   order-in-council    has  been passed   preventing'   the   shooting  of  prairie  chicken,   blue   and   willow  gi-ouse and pheasants for a  period  of  three years."    Last week's  Star seeks  to convey the idea  that the  Gazette  has been guilty of inventing a canard,  and its reason for thinking the .story a  canard is that Constable ' Hewatt  had  been asked if he   had   any  intimation  and he. replied that "lie knew nothing  of it and could   not  believe "the story  correct."    The Gazette had some, doubt  on first reading the Vernon News item  and was  careful to  giA*o  the  Vernon  NeAVs as authority  when   reproducing  it. for the 13. C.   Gazette  hadn't come  to hand.    As A\-e were not aAv'a.i e  that  the Lieutenant   governor, in  council  took   all    provincial    constables    into  their confidence   before  any orders-in--  council Avere passed, it didn't occur  to  us '.'that constables should, be sought in  order to verify, but avo did' watch iforth e official Gazette and in  what- numbers have yet, c.-onu- to hand, all Ave can  find bearing on the subject is   that in  the municipality of Chill'uvack  grouse  shooting is not.to begin this year until  the 15 of October.    But that does not  necessarily   imply    that,   the-  Vernon  News has made any mistake, for it is  quite   possible    that  a  Gazel;te  extra  may have been issued"-containing the  order-in-coiincil, although'this is hardly likely for there  Avould   be  no  need  for such haste.    On the principle  that  "misery loves company" it is not to.he  Avondered at that the   verdant editor  of the   Star,   whose    self-sufficiency,  bumptiousness      and     proimness    to  blunder makes   him   the   epitomo'-of  erring humanity, should  be eager to  note  lapses   in   others.

The last definite word  heard of her  was Avhen she called at the hotel Similkameen, acting and talking as if she  was demented, and evidently shenving  effects of a prolonged debauch.    During the afternoon   she   \yas  seen   on  Pinto's flat,  acting strangely, and to-  Avards evening Avhen  she had not returned to her cabin a, search Avas made  for her, but Avith no success,   and  the  search was maintained during the entire week by the constable and others.  The first  word  heard Avas from  Mr.  BradshaAV at Fifteen Mile,  avIio sent  up letters by Saturday eA'ening's stage  to Constable Sproule and the  Gazette  stating  that Ashnola John  (Indian)  had come to  his place  that day to inform him that on the evening previous  bis wife, avIio was Avashing clothes at  the river, had seen the body of a Avhite  person  floating slowly past.    The information  was  acted  on   and   in   the  morning a boat crew manned by Tom  Gorman, Tom Guiney, Louis Marcott,  .7. Crosby and Ed.Wheedon Avent clown  the   river,    patrolling   carefully    the  shores and sand bars, Avhile Constable  Sproule drove  down in a rig.    A little  below   Ashnola   John's   upper   ranch  across from Brushy Bottom they came  upon the both'  moored against a rock,  Avherc it Avas  made  fast  until a collin  could be  procured   and   arrangements  made for burial,   while Avoid  Avas sent  to relatives in  the   east end of the; riding,   Avith whom she. had had no intercourse for  years,   although   they  had  contributed   materially   at   times  towards her support. It is tlie old story of  Iioav a thirst for the demon drink with  its concomitants Avrecked her life and  her home.
