Some 15  ��������� mentor more have already bcen-en-  gaged and the Avorking force to be  .employed Avill be about tAventy men.  During.the past ten days various trips  to the property have been made and  some supplies taken up.  Considerable Avork has been done to  provide accommodation for the. .men,  and to this end three more cabins Avill  be required. Work of building these  will go onat once and it is the intention to team in supplies enough to do  ail Av.inter so as to obviate the necessity of any heavy teaming during the  AA'intei' Avhen the snoAV gets very deep.  The surf nee work'to be undercakeii at  once will be the building of the three  calling already mentioned: putting up  neAv shaft house and closing in the  mill, and'no time will be lost in getting this done so as to have the Avork  iii the niine Avell under way before the  Avinter sets in.

This shou.dgiA*e them a fair  idea of what they may expect and if  the property opens up satisfactorily  under this it should serve to give the  camp another producer.  BLAMING THE JINGOES.

HOW NOT TO GET ONE  (N*e\\-s-Advertiser.)  An   historical   inquiry  avouUI   probably sIioav  a lack/.of  novelty  in   the  charge  that gun and  A\'arship makers  in 'England are  at" the ..bottomof the  demand for an adequate British navy.

They/Avere paid for and  .���������oino. persons   may have made a. profit  out of  them.    Mr. Lai-kin  of Toronto  and others who charge that Mr. Winston ".Churchill atiddther British minister-',  that   Admiral   Beresford,   Lord  Roberts and other British commanders'  on sea and land, are simply promoting  the enterprises  of the contractors of  Avar material, are not saying anything  neAv.     There   Avas/ never   a   time   in  British history when  the men defending the nation altogether, escaped the  sneers  of cynics .find" faultfinders.    If  these  voices, had .'been heard in Elizabeth's time the Spanish Armada, Avould  have made a successful    iiiA*asion  of  England.     If the  cry had prevailed.a  century ago   Bonaparte would   have  made his landing.v The British nation  stands because the men Avho sneer are.  ���������always  less   in   number   and weight  than the   men avIio stand  up for their  country.   In the record of those whom  -Britain  honors and to \A'honi she Avill  pay  her eternal   tribute   of   grateful  praise,   there    are   no   shirkers   and  sneerers.

This  is an evil that all  country publishers  are more  or less to  blaine for helping  to perpetuate  arid it is a very foolish  thing to do.    Often   Avithout  any attempt to give  the publisher a single  cent of revenue in return for the favor,  hundreds of dollars  Avorth of advertising in  the shape of skilfully sugar-  coated pills is palmed off on the luckless  publisher and  he saaiiIIoaa's  them  in all his serene guilelessness.     Other  times a little dab of paid adpertising is  deluged  Avith  a flood  of sugar-coated  dope.    Noav it  Avould be quite as reasonable to ask a merchant to throAv in  a pair of  boots  Avith  a purchase of a  pair of suspenders   as   to   ask   Avhat  these  people sometimes do.     In   fact  that example  AA'ould not begin to describe  the disparity  that  often   exists  betAveen    the   paid   service   and    the  sponged service   that is to be found in  many of the propositions put up to is seldom sufficient to cause a man to  country publisher.

After  city dailies taking full pages to niagni-j the .second and third injections no re-  fy themselves and their schemes, often j action is produced, the person seldom  experiencing   any   discomfort   Avhat-  ever.  It is significant that many large employers of labor have gone into this  subject deeply, with gratifying results  statistics having shoAvn that of those  properly inoculated practically none  have taken typhoid Avithiu a year,  and ptotection is probably afforded  for a much longer period.  This   method should  appeal  especially  to   friendly   societies   and   labor  unions avIio   pay benefits   to their sick  members.  Typhoid vaccine may be obtained on  PROTECTION AGAINST TYP HOID  OAving to the prevalence of Typhoid  FeA'er in many parts of the Dominion  of Canada, the attention of the general public is called to the protection afforded to this disease by the inoculation of Typhoid Vaccine.  The vaccine may be injected by a  doctor, or in the case of a doctor not  being at hand, a trained nurse could  carry out the procedure. The first injection of vaccine, amounting to a feAV  drops of a sterile liquid introduced  under the skin, is followed iu ten days'  time by a larger injection, and for  greater security a third may be given  ten days after the second.  A few hours after the first injection,  a little headache and slight malaise  may be experienced, with tenderness  about the  point of inoculation.    This  The  Provincial Mineralogist  is getting some  bon-bons these days on his  mines report for 1011, recently distributed;   It is a comprehensive report in  many  particulars.     NeA-erthi'less it is  capable of several very' niateiiaf. ini-  proA'enients and the portion to Avhich  Ave Avould commend ins special  attention   is   the   tabular.     For   instance,  tables  Avhich  have  not  been   re-read  or amended for four or five years can  not very Avell be considered up to date  and as proof that they have not been  re-read  nor amended  by huh   in that  time Ave need only to point to,the fact  that lie has men mentioned as deputy  mining   recorders   at   certain   points  ���������who  have not  heldthe  office for five  years.     But the  croAvning sin in   the  tabular  portion   is  the one  Avhere. he  persists in defying all claims of decent  geography by insisting that the Nickel  Plate  mine    is situated' over  in   the  Boundary district one hundred miles  iiAvay from where it really is.    The report of course still goes  to the Agent  General's office in London and if anyone goes  there to see what- the Similkaineen    district   has   produced   and  turns  to tables   IV, V, and  IX, pages  IvS, K0,  and K12, lie  Avill conie to the  conclusion   that the   Hedley Gazette  has been  lying Avhen  it claimed  that  the production   of the   Nickel   Plate  mine  in the Similkameen  valley and  Siinilkaiheen  electoral district  up to  June 80th, 1912 was ,$4,159,:. 10.71.  This  isa .mighty, poor ..way to  encourage  ruining capital to develop  the resources of the Siniilkarneeen, but of course  no one must lay impious hands on the  mineralogist's tables or hint at "liiuss-  in' them   up a bit" from  time to time.

Some    papers     lake    it   fori.  granted that the poiti'olio   will belong  to Biiti.h Columbia, but those   urging j  that ciaiin should remember that there  are   other   milling    provinces    iu  the  dominion   as Avell as  our  own     and if  any of these   have a representative  in  tin.'     House   of   Commons    who   has  special training or fitness   for the position it would pay us better in the end  as a mining province   to   have   such a  man appointed.      Some may say  that  it is all   very   well   for   us   in    Yale-  Cariboo   who haA'e now   a, lrpi-csenla-  tive   in the Dominion Cabinet   to take  disinterested   ground     like   thN.   but  they should not forget   that, tliere was  no special pleading in Yale-Cnribn last  fall   for   the   appointment, of M r.

Town and Distritf.
In Hedley on August 22, to Mr. and
.Sirs. John Smith, a son.     "      '
James Oorrigaii came over from
Hope last, Aveek and reports great improvement there Avitliin the past tAvo
Hairy Rose, road foreman, started
a small gang-,to Avork upTAA'enty-mile
last -week milking some ropairs to enable supplies to be teamed in to the
.Golden Zone.
Miss Ruth BoAverinan has been engaged to teach a new-school opened at
Five-mile and took the, train to Princeton on Monday. There is a dearth of
. certificated teachers in the province
and permits are doubtless required, for
a number of the schools.
H. A. Hincks has returned to Eng-
.....; land with his bride but he did not
come to Hedley as the head 'office sent
Iiirn to Victoria for the present. The
fine golf courses in Victoria, 'which arc
more like av hat he has been used to.in
England, thissnininer Avill doubtless
be appreciated by hi hi.
Some needed repairs to the sidewalks are boing made. It is surprising
how quickly ..lumberbegins to decay
when laid nown in board walks and as
lumber is bound to get dearer year by
year in this valley it is fortunate that
the opportunity to get cement to ttike
its place has come as soon as the
Great Northern's peculiar ideas of doing business Avould let it come.
Mr. A. P. Hill, has been engaged as
principal and is expected along, any
day. School will re-open on the fourth
of September as it Avas not thought
AA'Orth Avhile to have it begin before
the Labor -Day. celebration. The assistant teacher lias not been engaged
but the Board expect that one Avould
be oii hand fur opening day.
Airs. Pazolt;of Isle of Wight, Eng.,
Avho has been spending a'few Aveeks
visiting   her  parents   Mr.   and   Airs.
��� ������.������Freeman of Princeton, spent the Aveek
end Avith  Air. mid Mrs.  Sproule.    She
^ is accompanied by her sister Ali.s
.Freeman. Both ladies play a very
good game of golf and took advantage of tliu Hedley course during
their stay.
A very distressing incident'is giA'en
in another column   Avhere the practice
of  stone-thiOAviiig among  children is
responsible for,-mother death.    That a
,  similar fatality   has  not occurred  be-
. fore iioav among-   children in Hedley is
a Avonder, I'm  almost' any day  Avhen
SIioav   is not on the ground   the  same
habit   is  to    be   seen   among   school
children going to and from school and
goes    on    apparel ith*    unchecked    by
parent or teacher.
Airs Wliitcnia.1] spent the Aveek
Avith Alls. Spionle while her husband
Avas out on the road selling coal for
the Princeton Coal and Land Co.
Word received from hini since he left
Avas to the effect that he had been
meeting Avith fftnd success and had
sold several car-loads as far as lie had
gone. The coal scores high as a domestic coal and that is the trade they
are going after as much as possible.
Jack Raitor, former G. N. li. agent
at Hedley, returned on Wednesday
last from a tAvo months' lay oil' Avhich
he had taken I'm- the benefit of his:
health Avhich had been failing. He
expected to go to Avork next morning
but found himself unable to do so and
he took the train out next day. It
AA-as liis intention to go to Rochester.
Minn, to undergo an operation and it
is said to be doubtful Avhether he will
come back to Heilley when he is able
to resume Avork.
On Sunday last the Misses Jackson,
of the Ninv Zealand, with George
Shelder and Will Martin, came across
a couple of black bears on Stirling
Creek that Avere near enough to he
struck Avith the fishing poles but they
didn't strike. Instead each side tried
to scare the other,out of countenance
for a .feAV minutes, hut the bears got
tired of this and Avent off into the
bush and nobody chased theni very
hard. There AA'as no running nor tree
climbing Avhich often accompanies adventures of this kind. In fact most of
the party were too badly frightened
to exercise powers of locomotion and
there AA'as a decided feeling of relief
when 'the'hears decided to cut the
acquaintance. The fishing AA'as good
op the creek but the bears made the
thing too realistic.
r Tliere Avas danger during the past
fortnight of labor troubles interfering
with 'mining operations in the Boundary district but at last reports ami-,
cable, adjustments had been made and
the Avork is not likely to be interfered
Avith. The sliding scale based on the
price of copper Avhich -was entered into
in Butte some years ago is also observed in the Boundary Avhere almost the
entire value is in .copper... The latest
agreements arrived at are that employees of the 13. C. Copper get an increase of 25 cents per day all round
AA*hiIe in the Granby the mine employees get an advance of 25 cents per
day but hot the men in the smelter
avIio it appears had not been subjected
to any reduction on the last fall of
Who stole the flag rope from the
'.Hedley school premises is something
the Board of public school trustees
would.-like to' kno.w. It is not only
the cost of aneAv 'rope but the task of
getting it through the pulley on the
top of the flag pole that is the main
trouble in connection Avith the affair.
The presumption;is. that no Canadian
nor British subject did it at all events,
and the general surmise that some of
tlie prairie schooner people from the
south of "the".'"line"""who" have conic
through here on their Avay north Avere
the most. likely. Not only ��� AA'as there
the incentive of getting a good rope
Avithout paying for it Avhich is enough
in itself to move the light-fingered,
but there Avould be for many of theni
the. additional satisfaction of doing
disrespect to the British flag.
The Oroville Gazette gives fuller
particulars of the robbing of the
miner. Paul Nelson, in the jail in Oroville.    Nelson,   it appears,   had taken

It is to be. hoped the committee, in
charge of the drilling contest on Labor
Day Avill take the hint given them in
the Keremeos coire. pondence. and AA'e
are sure there are none of our leaders
but. will agree that the complaint is a
just one. for at past exhibitions of the
kind hero   there was only a small p;
qn a rather picturesque jag and AA'as in
a decidedly incapable condition   Avhen
he   Avas gathered  in   by a.  policeman.
The person  suspected of the rolling is-
Ed.   Hayes, who  left  Oroville  at the
time Avhen   the rolling took   place and
was traced  out to Haines' ranch.    He
had   meanwhile left  there and Haines
avus' taken in   charge for   harboring a
criminal. Haines confessed that Hayes
had told  him of rolling Nelson in the
jail and that another man Jack Finlay
had assisted him .and they had procured   a   bolt  cutter  ab    the   blacksmith
shops to cut off the locks.    Finlay AA'as
also  arrested on   the strength of this.
Tlie Oroville Gazette adds:   "The case
is one that  calls for the   utmost  exertions of  the officers to ferret out, and
Avhen the accused is apprehended, and
the guilt ol   the perpetrators is finally
established   punishment   shall   foIloAv
swift and  severe, no matter avIio may j
suffer.     In the main   Oroville is one of j
the   most orderly   toAvns in   the state, j
but Avhen a crime is committed here it ;
is spread abroad  and magnified to the j
discredit, of the place.     The people be- ���.
lieve in   Iiiaa* and  order, and as a com- i
nuiiiity   protest against   Avrong doing, j
Too   often undue   publicity is given to ;
minor  oll'ences. and   I his publicity re   I
fleets upon the toAvn.    In this instance
a   grave  crime   has   been   committed.

that Avhen they appoint time-keepers

Ben Anderson of Chopa.ka aa-.-is in  toAvn last ..Thursday and reports his  large flock of sheep in   fine condition.  Harry Tweedle went up to his preemption on the Ashnola to do some  improvements." A BreAA'er accompanied him.  P. L. Wethei-by of Vancouver AA'as  looking over ��������� different properties in  the district last Aveek Aviththe idea of  purchasing.  George Emory, our Avorthy station  agent, pulled out a fine trout last  Saturday measuring Avithin a fraction of seventeen inches.  Ha lis Richter leaves shortly for the  Calgary stampede Avhere Ave believe  he a\ ill compete in the broncho busting contest. If Hans rides Ave Avish  lihn every success.  The butchers of Penticton Avill be in  the beginning of next AA'eek to round  up all- the beef cattle in sight. AVe  hope they Avon't get them all, because  Ave can't live on peaches in the Avinter.  Miss Winnie and Jeanette Bagley of  .Spokane visited their cousin Mrs. 1).,T.  innis last Thursday going on to Green  Mountain the folloAving day acconi-  by Mr. Forbes to spend a feAV days  Avith their aunt, Mrs. L. A. Clark.  Daniel Samuel looks as if he is at  his old trade, again. He aa\-is seen riding the ranges the. other day'and apparently by the look of his horse he  had. been doing some tall riding. On  being questioned as to Avhat he avus  looking for said, a bay horse, a feAV  hours later Avhen asked the same  question replied that he Avas looking  for a- roan mare and colt belonging to  his aunt. Looks kind of fishy in the  face of it.  .1. I). McDonald of Seattle has been  in the district the past Aveek looking  OA-er the Similkameen river so as to be  able to report on the feasibility of pitting in a number of gold dredges. 'Mr.  McDonald is representing large capital  interests, and in a Aveek or ten days  expects to give us a fuller report.  After more of the company's men  have looked over the proposition he  thinks it Avon't be long before Ave see  four or five dredges on the river but  before this will take place the river  will have to be drilled and it is expected this Avill be done this fall.  Lacrosse! Yet it's here.and the boys  are getting along as Avell as can be. expected and are looking forward to a  nice friendly gave Avith Princeton on  Labor Day at Hedley. This being the  first game of lacrosse to be played in  the Siniilkaiiieeii Ave would like to see  the sports committee, put up a-little  purse to encourage the national game  especially if there are not enough  teams to take part in the baseball.  We Avould recommend in case of there  not being more than tAvo baseball  teams to compete for the. prize offered  a portion of the stakes could go to-  AA'ards a purse put up for the competing lacrosse teams.

Collins, publicity agent for the  Calgary Herald, was in toAvn Monday  and Tuesday looking up .subscribers  and also to give the subscribers here a  chance for publicity in the Calgary  paper. Jf he receives ten iicav .subscribers, Avhich we believe he has already got. it will mean that through a  correspondent stationed here publicity  of this district will be given in the  Calgary Herald. tAvice a week or .veck-  ly as is required.  The rock drilling contest to take  place at Hedley on Labor Day is  anxiously aAvaited and it is to be hoped that the stewards in charge will  see that all the spectators get a. fair  sIioav of vieAving the contest for on  different occasions Ave have found that  the croAvd Avere alloAved to come in so  close to Hie contestants that only a  few Avere able to see. Forty feet at  the least should be betAveen the contestants and the spectator., thereby  g'ving them all a sIioav.  making Labor Day a success.  We had the pleasure of meeting a  real old-timer on Monday in the person of Thomas G. Earl of Lytton, B.C.  avIio is making a tour of inspection for  the provincial government to look  into the progress of agricultural pursuits during the past six years. Up to  six years ago Mr. Earl avjis a. member  af the Board of Agriculture. He is  one of the feAV forty-niners left to tell  us of the good old time as Avell as bad.  Fifty-four years ago Mr. Earl came to  B. C. to join in the gold excitement.  He says it is wonderful the progress  that has been made in the orchards  the past six years, claiming that as far  as he inspected there is no blight or  disease of any kind to be seen among  the trees, also saying that the Richter  orchard is the finest in the Avorld.
