The costumes this  year were many  and varied and many good ones were  to  be seen.   Although   many   people  could pick out many of the dancers in  their disguises, yet  there were a few  that had everybody guessing.

Many of the maskers car-  ried of their parts very well and the  onlookers were given a good deal of  enjoyment.  The representation from Princeton  and Keremeos was small, but this was  mostly due to the train service. One  sleighload came in from Princeton  and although a few from Keremeos  were ready to make the tiip there wa.-  not enought to make up a load.  At-midnight a halt was called for  supper nnd everybody repaired to the  Great Northern hotel where a sumptuous j-epast was served. After tho  wants of the inner man were satisfied  the crowd again leturnedto the hall  and dancing was lesumed. The dance  broke up at 2:30 and all present voted  it one, of the most enjoyable ones yet  held.  The music was supplied by.the-Hi-d-  ley orchestra and was voted by all to  have been excellent.

Owing to the water freezing up on  Sunday night the rink could not be  flooded and at a result the ice was not  in as good a shape as on some former  occasions.  ARRANGE SCHEDULE   FOR K. V  Will   Be Feature of New Time Table o  Canadian Pacific Railway  A SMALL BLAZE  FireHBIIght'Goes To" Roots'of 1 r'ees  An announcement of particular in-  teiest to orchard glowers is made by  Finit Pests Inspectoi Cunningham.  He said that experiments have made  it clear that file blight on apple and  pear trees will descend to the roots.  Pathologists have hilliei to contended that the blight only attacked the  trunk and twig-i and did not go to the.  roots of the trees, so that if the infected branches aie cut off in time  there was no danger of the tiees being lost.-  New and graver (Lingers aiefeaied  now, however, as a result of the proof  that the blight is apt to go to the nee  roots. If it descends to the roots as  soon as it infects the'ttee, ttietiee  natmally is beyond hope.  On Saturday afternoon the iesi-  dence of Mr. George Stevens had a  close call from being destinyed by  fire. The fire started from a defected  chimney and when noticed has burnt  through the 100L Men from the mill  and town were soon on the scene and  in a few minutes had the fire out. As  the building is on the east side of the  creek and as there are no hydiants  .'v'r,rs fclitri-<r it -was lurky 1 hut the H'.e  was over before it had made" more  headway. Several of the~f-esidetits of  Hedley who had chemical liic extinguishers brought these over but before they arrived the fire was out  Little damage was done to the building  bert and was not insured.  A feature of the now time table of  tlie Canadian Pacific Railway for its  British Columbia division upon which  the Vancouver officials of the company are woiking will be that it will  provide for passenger traffic over the  new Kettle Valley Railway. Regular  service will lie given via Spence's  Bridge and Meiritt through to Nelson,  passengers slopping ovei night at  Penticton, where there is a Canadian  Pacific lailway hotel. Tlie new loiite  has many scenic attractions and is expected to prove a strong factor in attracting tourists.  Under tho new time tuble tluee  transcontinental trains a day will be  run each way instead of two as at  piesent. A laigely augmented travel  is expected, the exposition at San  Franscisco having resulted in heavy  advance bookings.  Eastbouncl the new sei vice over the  Kettle Valley railway will start from  Spence's Bridge, connecting with the  eastbound transcontinental leaving  Vancouver in the morning and westbound connection will he with the  transcontinental arriving in Vancouver in the evening.

Gillespie, druggist, states that  the simple mixture of buckthorn bark'  glycerine, etc., know'as Adler-i-ka. is  causing great surprise because just  ONE SPOONFUL relieves constipation, sour or gassy stomach almost  IMMEDIATELY. It is so thorough  a bowel cleanser that it is used successfully in appendicitis. Adler-i-ka acts  on BOTH upper and lower bowel and  the INSTANT action is astonishing.  It never gripes and is perfectly safe  to use.  Accoi ding to Mi. Joseph Graham, of  Babhur.-t, for the second time since  the creation of the world tin- month  of February will be without a full  moon.  According to information in his possession, obtained in a copy of Tit Bits,  ofthe year 1S91 in answer to a question as to whether there had ever been  a month in which there was no full  moon, an astionoiner stated that in  February, 1S60, there had been no full  anon,, and it was predicted that the  phenomena would not happen again  for 2,500,000 years.  According to Mr. Graham, this year  there will be a full moon on Januaiy  30 and on March 1, but hone in February.  METEOROLOGICAL.  .

Bowser, with a view to  relieving any distress among poor  ranchers and others living in the interior, has instructed Game Warden  Williams to issue special permits allowing deer to be killed out of season.  Deputy game . warden Schisslor of  Princeton has already issued a few of  these special permits, which allow for  the killing of one deer only.

The  fact   that   opciatious  have  been continuous since the fnrn'  . ��������� ' . .'   ' ���������* *  aces were put in blast in March "speaks  volumes for the future prosperity of  the enter prize. '-When a* company is  able to continue active operations during a period .-.of-puch : unusual disturbance in'business,** with s6 many "erit������-'r-  ' prises closed", it is prima facie evidence  - that under,nornial conditions there-  results will be highly satisfactory.  The   production    from   the   placer  mines in the Cariboo and Cnssiar nrin-  . ing districts,    which   include   Atlin,  Quest) eU lOniineca, .Dense "Lake   and,  Barkerville,  is  estimated  at 1^500,000  for 1914 as compared  with $500,772 in  1913.    Th'e. production of lode   gold,  silver,  copper,  lead,  and zinc  will be  about $14,000,000 during 1914, as compared with $1"7,709,838 in 1913.  In'cori-  nection  with this decrease it must ]be.  remembered that the market price of  each  of the metals except   gold"has  been  considerably lower during 1914  than it was during 1913: in fact the  lower market price will account fop  $1,250,000 of the decrease in the value  of, the production. }  The value of the production of coal  and coke for 1914 is estimated at about  $9,000;000; as compared with $9,197;*  <90 for 1913. There are two reasons  for this, the first being the decreased  demand for coke at. the Trail and  Boundary emeltere owing to the clos-  fj^.gqvngof the <Sranby and Mother  JQpde. jplants ^oK;Gr������nd  Forks' and  .���������keenwppu h]u11M]& part closing down'  of ahc' Trail "plnoi- at this eommenrr-  .mriifTofUhe W.-ii';.t|ie' Kccond being'tbr  di^oi,g.'ini/.ed_ conditions  of   laboi    on  Vancouver island following the stiike  dining 1913.   It it gratifying to be able  to 'announce at "the beginning of 1915  that on.'Vancouver island/the collieiies.  are running  at .their normal capacity,  and that the  Tiail and CJranby  plants  aie running  almost up to capacity, so  that the  new year is commencing under l.ivoi.ible auspices.  The value of miscellaneous productions such as building stone, gravel,  and sand, is estimated to reach $3,000,-  000 foi 1911, oi about tlie same as for  1013, when it was 'stated in the report  -I he iliuislei of Mine.- at $3,39S,100.  Viilio igh the building indu.-.ti y has  n en (iiiii't  in the ptovinee during the  pis-l yeai, as it h,is been the wot Id  ovei,   yet  the  tnoimous quantity of  1 roken )ocku-ed in the construction  ol the lu i- ilvwatci andpieis at "Violin i.i has at least ollset the decie.ised  ipiaiilil y of building stone iimhI in 1911  is computed with the quantity u-ed  used in 1913.

The   Way   a   Clever   Lawyar   Won   a  Verdict  For  His Client.  An interesting example ol dramatic (ippeal to human experience during a trial and a conclusive test ef  the appeal, closed a case tried in a  western court. ,'    . ��������� .  '  The plaintiff was,, suing,a inilwav  for damages to a building which had  beeu set on (ire, it was alleged, by  sparks  from   a  locomotive.  Counsel, for th ��������� road,"based his defense on tin ndt that, since the  fire .was, seen. .. qii.i.'playeb, on ' the  train 'and the train "was* in the station  only four minutes, the.fire must therefore have been set before the .engine  pulled into the- station. Four minutes, he contended, .constituted a  period not long enough for a fire to  start  and get  under  way.  On the other hand, counsel for the  plaintiff argued in this wise: If .i  young man, sitting on a sofa with  his best girl, is holding her hand  the time travels like an express tram.  But if you dump a lot of sparks on  thc pine roof of a dry building in  summer four minutes. is ample to  settle the fate of the structure despite  ali  efforts to save  it. _    ,  There were some incredulous smiles  at this. The attorney took out his  watch and, handing it to the foreman  of the jury, requested him to announce the termination of a period  of   four   minutes.  The jurymen leaned over and looked at the watch. Then they got tired  and settled back in their seats. The  foreman of the jury lowered his hand  as the signal of the beginning of the  four minutes and then rested it on  his knee. The attorney shifted his  feet a few times and sat down. The  judge looked at the clock awhile and  th n gazed abstractedly out of the  window. A deputy marshal looked  in at the door to see what was the  ire r and patiently awaited the  result of the curious scene. Nearly  every man in the courtroom had a  \ia ch in his hand, carefully studying the face of it. The counsel for  t:u> plaintiff was sacrificing four  minutes of his time. But he felt that  they we.e well invested.  At last the foreman of the jury announced the termination of the test.  To every person in the' room the  four minutes had seemed at least  twice as long. The judge himself  afterward said that it seemed something like fifteen. The- ordeal had  tho effect upon tho jury that the attorney had calculated. It was an  object lesson, a striking exemplification of what might happen in. four  minutes.  Accordingly thc jury found that the  defendant's" engine had sufficient  time in which to fire the building  and that the fire had ample time in  which to get under way and create  a blaze which the men oh the train  cowl see. A. verdict for damages  was brought in;to. the. amount: of-  Rome. $15,000. ���������  ��������� '  KEREME0S-PENT1CT0N  ROYALMAIL STAGE  Auto Leaves on  arrival  of 9.30  and 4 o'clock trains.
