Vancouver, B.C., July 4.���������Two citizens of the United States narrowly escaped murder and sudden death tonight when one of them plucked a  miniature Union Jack from a standing automobile and trampled it.in mud.  In a few minutes there was a crowd of  1,000 and the offenders were badly  maltreated and would have heen more  severely dealt with but for the' inter-  ferenceof the police. The affair occurred in the congested district in the east  end of the city where there is a large  alien population and it .looked fo r  the time being as if there would be  serious rioting. The intervention of  the police, however, saved the situation  and the two visitors were allowed to  escape by a side street.

His action halted the  parade not at all, and no attention  was paid to him by the regiment, hub  several civilians standing near pulled  the flag away from the waiter, and  throwing it on the ground began to  treat its former bearer in a rough manner, when they were in tempted by the  arrival of Patrol Sergt, McKenzie,Jwho  rapidly restored order.

MONEY TO LOAN  PENTICTON,  B. C.  E. E. Burr  General   Blacksmith  Hedley, B. C.  Horse-shoeing and all  Blacksmith Work  Promptly attended to.  Pipe-fitting done.  District road supervisor, H.A. Turner, arrived in Hedley on Saturday accompanied by E, P. Girdwood, public  works engineer.    Mr. Girdwood is doing the work of engineer for the Public Works Department for the three  provincial ridings of Kamloops, Okanagan and Similkameen.     This was his  first trip into the Similkameen valley  and he was very much pleased with a  lot of   the road-building which   had  been  and is now  being done in  the  riding.     Each riding  he finds has  its  own engineering problems and in the  ridings father north the protection of  public roads from   the  incursions of  rapid swollen  streams is  now  one of  them.     The present season  has witnessed higher water in the Fraser, and  its tributaries and also  in the Columbia than has been seen for ten years.  Apart from the roads (old and new)  and a few bridges, the Similkameen  riding does nob .require so much personal supervision from the engineer,  but nevertheless it is desirable that  all public works shall be done on proper plans and after the latest approved  scientific methods and to this end the  services of the Public Works engineer  are desirable and as much of his time  as he can afford to give will doubtless  be acceptable to the district supervisor. Mr. Girdwood has the requisite  reverence for good roads to warrant  the belief that his administration of  his office will redound to the improvement of the highways in this and  other districts.  The general recommendations of the  New Jealand Royal Commission on  Mines, appointed in 1011 to inquire into and report on the conditions relating to the health and safety of miners, are:  (1) That the maximum height, of  stopes should be 8 ft 0 in., measured  from the ordinary level of the working  floor of that stope.   .  (2) If required in the opinion of the  mines inspector, all ladderwaysin constant use for travelling should be lighted by fixed lights in the event of its  being difficult  to carry an  open light.  (3) Sufficient space should be made  in all levels at convenient intervals for  men to pass trucks.  (4) Speaking tubes or other method  of communication should be provided  between levels and shafts or levels and  stopes, if more than 50 feet in height.  (5) All ladders in mines should extend for at least three feet above the  top of the shaft, platfoun or landing  place.  (6) There should he at least two  shafts or outlets to the surface, with  which every lode or mineral bed being  worked should have a communication  nob less than three feet wide and three  feeb high; the outlet nob to be at any  point nearer to one another than 30ft.  (7) The use of all tamping other  than plastic, clay and water should be  prohibited; also the use of instantaneous fuses and the practice of charging  a number of holes when it is intended  to fire only a few at a time.  (8) The adoption of the recommendation'of the Transvaal mining commission is-advised; this reads: Every  working place where rock drills are in  use shall be furnished with a James  water blast or suitable appliance for  laying, and. removing, the dust, smoke  and gases after a blast, and no man  shall return to an end. raise, winze, or  other close place until the air is free  from dust, smoke and fumes caused  by blasting.  (9) Adequate coverings or penthouses should be provided, extending  over the whole area of shafts in course  of sinking,-sufficient space only, being  left theiein for the passage of any  sinking cage, skip,, bucket, or other  means of conveyance: such covering  to he situated not- more than 50 ft.  lrom the shaft bottom in the case of  vertical shafts, or not more than 100  feet in the case of steeply inclined  shafts.   '-.-.:���������  (10) It should be an offence for men  to carry tpols or timber in ladderways;  to throw tools or timber down ladder-  ways; or to take explosives with them  on cages.  (11) Whenever possible, dredging  and other 'machinery should be oiled,  repaired, or adjusted when stationary,  and when the conditions do nob admit  of this, the work should be done hjr a  competent or experienced person. No  person en gaged in proximity to dredge  or mining machinery should wear-  loose or, flowing clothing.  (12) Boilers more than ten years  old should be subjected to a hydraulic  test.  (18) Pawls and ratchet wheels should  he fitted to all mine windlasses, and  windlasses or other suitable appliances  should, be erected in stopes for the  purpose of raising tools and timber.  Following the conviction of Paul  Spintlum who was tried a second time  for the murder of Constable Kindness  after failure of a Vernon jury to convict, his companion Moses Paul was  tried as an accessory after the fact  and found guilty and the-judge sentenced him to imprisonment for life.  MAKE CONTRACTORS  RESPONSIBLE  Fire Regulations Require Them  to Clean  up All Debris Resultingjfrom Clearing Right-of-Way  MINING  NOTES  The total gross value of the ore produced from Rossland mines in all years  from 1893 to date has been in excess of  $55,000,000, and it is evident ft oni present indications that there will be a  regular pi eduction of ore from these  mines for many years to come.  The Star mine at Sandon is shipping  about a carload a week, but the ore- is  high grade and extensive development is going forward opening the  property at deeper levels.  Work is going on steadily in Camp  Clifton, all thiee drills being constantly at work. One of the drill crews is  starting a new hole this week. Tlie  light from the camp fire up in Brad-  shaw gulch is plainly discernible every  evening from the streets in Hedley.  Accurate definite information of ore  conditions and prospects in Summit  are difficult to get. The most definite  we have seen was that supplied the Gazette by Mr. Jacobs two weeks ago. A  correspondent of the Princeton Star  who is certainly not a knocker when  he says that the Carbonate "could  easily supply 200 tons a day of pay oi e  now", admits a little farther on that  the prospect may not quite so rosy  when he says: "The season for prospecting is short, and so far every person is  working on a shoestring." Neither is  he very confident that the principal  development now under way is  likely to prove satisfactory to mining  men like Patsy Clarke when he says;  "It is hard to tell what P. Clarke will  do, he has thrown up --several good  fines." - - .--     ���������''   -    i.  Mr Allen of Vernon, the district  fire warden, is at present seeing that  the railway contraotois arc living up  to the roquirenients of the Land Act-  as interpreted by the Chief Forester.  It is estimated that the work which  tas been laid upon the railways by the  forestry department will cost them  $10,000 in bins district alone.  The contractors had argued that  they should not he asked to do the  work lequird by the forestry department since the woods were full of  wind-falls, just as likrly to catch fire as  their slash, and that the roads that  they had cut were a greab convenience  to tiie fire wardens and to the public  and .should be appreciated as such.  The department was successful however, said Mr. Allen, in enforcing their  veiw, that the department did nob  want the roads and that dead wood  along these was the iimst dangerous  to the forests since huntees and other  travellers would naturally use.'these  trails, the only danger from the fire to  the dead   wood being from   lightning.  COMMUNICATION  STATISTICS OF  MINE CASUALTIES  British Columbia Coal Mines Make Much  Worse Showing Than Her  Metal Mines >  BETTER TERMS COMMISSION SOON TO SIT  Prospects are considered particularly favorable for Graham Island becoming an important producer of oil.  Beds of shale impregnated with oil,  asphaltum, tar and seepages abound  in that section and prospecting for oil  is to be prosecuted vigorously.  Victoria, B.C., July 3.���������What Sir  Richard McBride describes as one of  the most important undertakings  since confederation as far as it affects  this province will be commenced within the next few weeks with the opening of the session of the Better Terms  commission. E. V. Bodwell, K.C.,  the provincial representative on the  commission, will proceed to Ottawa  next week to confer with Z.A. Lash,  K.C., the Dominion representative,  regarding the choice of a third member,  the date of the opening sessions and  the planning of itinerary. Hon. W. J.  Bowser will open the ease for the province. E. P. Davis.K.C. and C. E.  Wilson, K.C.,, have been appointed  counsel for British Columbia, and the  brief for the province has lieen prepared by R. E. Gosnell. It is understood that the sessions will be held in  Victoria, Ottawa and possibly London.  In  British  Columbia it  was stated  that, the nlimber of fatal  accidents in  the metal-mines of the province in ten  years 1902-1911,  had been as shown in  the following table:  -���������-  No. of    Death rate per  Year Fatalities   1000 employed  1902.." .13 Nob shown  1903.  '. ...18 Not shown  1901 .......14 ....4.24  1905.... 24 3.89  1900 :.......17.. 4.61  1907 ...20...;:  ....5.4  1908 21..........5.93 ,  1909. 15.......    4.9  1910 .13... 4.19  1911 17... 5.24  The death rate for 1912 has nob yet  been published; it is probably lower  than for 1911 in the metal mines.  It should be noted that in British  Columbia the average death rate is  higher in the coal miues than in the  metal mines, which would make it appear that in this respect this province  makes a better showing than do some  of the metal-mining states to the south  of us. The average death rate in the  British coal mines for ten years'. 1902-  1911, was S.1G per 1000 men employed;  for the ten years, 1903-1912, however,  it was lower, namely, 4.34 per 1000 employed. The number of fatalities in  1902 was abnormally high, hence the  considerable improvement when that  year dropped out ef the last ten year  period taken in account, as above..  Editor Gazette  Dear Sir :  Are we  private citizens, murderers,  thieves and felons  that we are  to be  treated  in   the manner which Deputy  Game-  Warden Blurton   and his assistants have been doing ?    We might as  well be convicts when we have to submit to the insults and bullying of these  men.     A laid   was made  by them  on  rny  premises  and  my house  entered  under a search warrant on the pretence  that they   were   looking   for   beaver  pelts. They had no evidence to warrant  the outrage except some  tittle-tattle  which  Sullivan had  heard on a street  corner several  months  befme.  he received his appointment  and badge as  game warden.    As soon as he received  his appointment he  had this Blurton  swear out the  warrant on   the  mere  strength of this  hearsay tittle-tattle,  and they came in their auto, entering  the house rudely as if they had come  lo break  up agang of despera te outlaws. '     ���������':'    If men who are given a little power  through appointment to an office under the government have no more  judgment and common sense than to  exceed their authority in this manner  something should be done to protect  citizens from outiage in their homes.  Can you advise anything? Thanking  you for giving this publicity.  Yours truly  Louis Goodchap.  A NEW MAP OF THE PROVINCE  A new map of the province of  British Columbia is now read}' for  distribution. The map is on a scale of  17.75 miles to one inch, and is in four  sheets, which, when joined together,  make a map about 5 feet square. In  order to cover the cost of production  of this map, a charge of a $1.00 is  being made, and no complimentary  copies are being sent out. It can he.  secured by sending to the Land  Department, Provincial building, Victoria.  The complaint made by Louis Good-  chap as above, calls for investigation  into the conduct of the men who entered his residence and behaved in the  manner in which they are said to  have acted. Mr. Goodchap informs  the editor that his women folk were  made hysterical through the rudeness  and bullying to which they were subjected and one of the women has been  made ill through the nervous shock  resulting. Blurton is accused of putting his fingers in his mouth and  whistling shrilly a dozen times or  more to men outside to surround the  house and out-buildings and he yelled  at women to sit down and shut-up and  other like offensive orders given in a,  bullying tone. An investigation would  certainly be in order, for if such official rudeness and tyranny as this is to  go unreproved the rights of private  citizens in British Columbia will be  little better than they are in Russia.  The renewal of the lead bounty is  responsible for the continued activity  in mining in the Slocan.  In spite of frequent bear raids on  the stocks in Wall Street the stock of  the Hedley Gold Mining Company is  held firmly at about $31 per share and  those who try to increase their holdings find ib difficult to get much of ib at  that figure.  The Slocan Record expresses surprise at the recent slump in Standard  shares and slates its opinion that it  will pay upward of five million dollars  in dividends in the next ten years.

The  whole story is told by Mr. Cominiskey  to the Columbian in New Westminster  and it places the position taken by the  chiefs  on a   higher plane.     The main  argument   which told   with  the chiefs  was an appeal to their devotion to law  and order and the responsibilties resting  on   them   as  exemplars  for their  bands.

IRRESPONSIBLE FLAG   CRANKS  lb is a  curious thing that  tho-recurrence of the first week <���������? July of every  year is attended  with the  usual crap  of fool flag incidents.     This year they  had  Hag disturbances   in   Vancouver,  Winnipeg  and  Moosejaw   that   have  been reported in the daily papers, and  doubtless   there  have   been  others of  which   we  have nob yet  heard.     If st  Canadian  or a resident of .the British  Isles  were logo  over to  the United  States and get into a flag   row, either  by 'display of the British flag or'by interference  with or disrespect to ".old  glory",  and w as lynched for his folly  and' impertinence* the general -verdict  of Canadians or British, -we'are sure,  would be '"served to fool right.'      This  flag-waving  is a  stupid   thing  when  practised by people-\yhd .-.have nob the  common sense to tell'them whenbo do  ���������it or  where.     There'is  a-bi'inc' and'a  "' place-' for .everything- and the place is  certainly  not in  another .man's country,   nor is  the  time  to  display  the  American   Hag  in  Canada,  on   either  the first of July or the fourth.     It is  often  remaiked  in   Canada that not  enough pains are taken to teach loyalty  or a   reverence for  the flag to the  children   in our public schools,   but if  the good taste and good judgment of  the Canadian to leave his flag ab home  when he  travels to  or sojourns in another country,   is one of the results of  our remissness in  the   matter of flag-  waving   and   pyrotechnics,   then   we  have nob lost so much   by it after all.  We  believe  in  teaching   loyalty and  reverence for the Hag to all Canadian  children;   but along  with  ib we hope  will also be taught good manners and  the good sense   to know that the only  place  for the display of  the  British  flag  is   in  Great  Britain,   Canada or  some   other   British   possession,   and  when in  a foreign country the. proper  attitude to   the flag of that country is  respect for ib ab all times.    No one but  an idiot or a cad   would think of offering  disrespect or insult  to the flag of  any other  country when  displayed in  the  country  where ib  belongs.     The  patriotism of the Chinaman is known  to run largely to noise and smell,  and  there  is a certain  class  of American  whose idea of loyalty to his country  makes him run the Ohink a very good  second, if he does not outstrip him.  "WITHERTIP"  OF POPLARS  AND FIRE BLIGHT  Considerable, anxiety has been produced in some quarters by a withciing  and dying of tips of willows and poplars in the vicinity-of .orchards, -under  the impression that the trouble was due  to Fire Blight. This, however, is not  the case. The disease'in .the poplars is  of- fungous -origin'.and-' lias-been we'll  knowh'for some -time 'under the name  .of 'Vy'itherlip of -Poplar. ��������� Though-a-e-  seinbling the Fire Blight quite closely  in-general- appearance,-.therefore,' this  disease lias no connection with it whatever.  The only wild ^plants which are  known to be affected with the blight  are the-Hawthorn and Mountain Ash.  In the east a plant related to -the Sils-  ksitoon is also Jknown to be suspect-  able.

A incident occurred in the baseball  game between Hedley and Copper  Mountain at Princeton on Dominion  Day which it would be well for managers of the big leagues and - minor  leagues to follow up, as it offers a  solution to the difficulty of securing  absolutely just decision from the umpires. Often an umpire may be perfectly conscientious in giving a decision that may nevertheless be wrong  and the so-called safeguard of following the rule to give the base-runner,  the .'benefit of the boubb, is at best only  a theory, and cannot be put in practice to the satisfaction of the majority  concerned.  During the game above mentioned  at which there were two umpires, one  of them gave one of the Hedley team  out at third base and the other umpire didn't think he was. A camera  man with one of those quick-developer  machines happened to be standing by  when the play was being made and  turned on his machine. The picture  showed the man down touching the  base with his hand and the third-baseman still waiting for the thrown ball  to reach his hands and the ball itself  was seen to be about'six inches away  from the third baseman's glove, to say  nothing of the touching act that had  to be done after the ball was caught  before the base-runner was out. The  umpire reversed his decision and called  the .man safe.  Now ib wouldn't be difficult to have;  one or more of these machines brained  on each bag for close decisions on the  bases. The picture referred to is now  in this office and may be seen by anyone who calls.  ITA-ICE ������������������Notice *that Tlieodore J.

At 2 o'clock on Tuesday morning  George Riddle discovered bhe small  livery stable office in which he sleeps  to be on fire, but he was able bo extinguish it himself without outside  assistance.. A discarded cigar���������that  fruitful source of many ; fires���������was  again at fault.  The Gazette was in error last week  instating that the distance drilled,by  the winning team at' Princeton was  20 9 lb inches. The item should have  read 27 instead of 29. The information  was received over the phone and the  0 in the fraction doubtless was responsible for conveying the idea that it  was 9 in the whole number as well.  Tom Roderick of Phoenix is over on  Independence mountain' doing some  development work on the Ainasis  group of claims in which he has an interest. His partner Jim McNulty who  has been working on the Oregon for  the past three months has gone over  to help him for a couple of weeks after  which he will again resume work on  the Oregon.  Hedley is represented this week-at  the Teachers' examination which l>e-  gan in Siimmerland on Monday morning. Among those from Hedley school  who are writing on the exaih are  Gertrude and Marjnrie Smith, Richard  Clare and Mack Clarke. All of these  have pub in good faithful work with  bheir studies and their friends wish  them the greatest .measure of success.  J. R. Edmonds when mounting his  horse on- the range on Saturday last  was thrown on,a stone heap before he  had got firmly seated in tho saddle  and sustained the fracture of four ribs.  The horse gob away and the walk  home in his injured condition taxed'  his strength prebby severely, bub he is  feeling as well now as the knitting  bones will allow him to ab this stage.  Rev. A. H.' Cameron gave a very interesting talk on Sunday evening last  in telling of his trip to the Congress in  Toronto. In going he journeyed somewhat leisurely through the. Kootenays  and the revisitation of old mission  scenes doubtless brought back memories the recital of which was very  acceptable to his hearers. It is his intention to continue the narrative the  next evening he occupies the pulpit.  The result of the rock drilling contest at Princeton last week, did not  seem to satisfy the Copper Mountain  beam who finished third among the  teams competing, and bhey have posted a forfeit to drill a match contest  with the Hedley team who were winners of first money, the match to take  place at Princeton on Saturday next.  Ibis understood that their challenge  has been accepted and the contest  to be pulled off on Saturday.  "The. Gazette- has learned that the  trouble with the telephone lines continues  to render  travel unsafe  owing  Rock Creek beat Greenwood in the  trap shoot at the latter place on Dominion Day. Joe Richter and Ed.  were the crack shots for Rock Creek,  the former breaking 16 out of 50 and  the latter shooting oft' a tie with  Logan of Greenwood for second place.  Rock Creek's score was 203 against 187  for their opponents.  Last week's batch of films for the  moving picture show, in Fraternity  hall made an interesting and enjoyable show which was evenly balanced  between melodrama and straight  comedy. The educative influence of  some of the European films like that  depicting the Alpine tragedy in last  week's program inc. is nob to be lightly  estimated and tends to supply in no  small measure the benefits of foreign  travel. The censoring of films on the  part of the governnicub was a wise  movement and is a sufficient guarantee to the public that nothing unseemly will be presented.  Robb. Keffer, M. E., returned to  Greenwood on Thursday lust after relieving the editor for a little better  than a couple of weeks and getting  out a few interesting issues of the Gazette just to keep him in mind of old  times of his printer days. Bob has  passed his final examination as Mining  Engineer ab the School of Mines in  Pullman, Washington, where he was  one of the closest and most thorough  students who have gone through the  institution. It is his intention to get  a little further experience m smeller  work this summer in one of the Montana smelters if he can arrange to do  so. His stay in Hedley this summer  was enjoyed by him, as there was a  little more going on by way of diversion than in the year previous when  he kindly lelievod I'or us and gave the  editor a brief holiday.  to the wires getting down across the  road. Last year it cost the road gangs  in the Similkameen riding over $000  to make repairs to the telephone to  keep tho wires up off bhe road. The  Department of Interior for the Federal government should see after.it.  Anyone driving by night either by  team or auto is in danger of decapitation.  The handling of drill steel ab the  Nickel Plate has been very much  facilitated by the opening of the new  blacksmith and -machine shop on the  level of No. 1 tunnel. The transfer of  the machinery from the upper shops  on No. 3 level was made last week  and the forge fires are now burning  brightly in bhe new shop while bhe  lathes and other appurtenances of the  machine shop are gradually being put  in place in the new quarters -which  are light and airy and will enable the  machinists to work to better advantage.  Fink, a young man who came to  Hedley early in the summer and played baseball with the local club in a'  number of practices, has been getting  into trouble. From here he went on  bo Princeton and was working for a  while ab Copper Mountain. Last  Thursday he was up on a charge of  issuing cheques without any funds in  bhe Bank. The complaint was laid by  F. H. French who had been given one  of the spurious cheques and the case  was heard before magistrate Thomas  in Princeton. The hearing was postponed for a week to obtain evidence.  During the past week the stamp  duty of the Hedley Gold Mining Company's mill has been lowered considerably by the character of the lock coining down from the mine, which rock  is found to be of unusual hardness and  toughness and requires an abnormal  amount of pounding to reduce to the  requisite fineness to pass the battery  screens. Neither is there the same  amount of sulphides in it and hence  the quantity of concentrates from it  has decreased, bub as long as bhe gold  values show a sufficient increase to  make up for the smaller quantity  milled, which is believed to be the  case, not even the dividend-seeking  shareholder will have any cause for  complaint. The ore from other mine  faces of course carries its usual heavy  mineralization.

The new links give a course  of a little better than a mile and has  some very good holes. The reason for  laying it out was the unsatisfactory  tenure of bhe links on Pinto flat caus-  by the vacillation and unreasonableness of the Indians who could not come  to any agreement either among  themselves or with anybody else.  They were offered an annual rental by  the golf club of a sum which when  taken on a basis of the actual acreage  used, amounted to a, little better than  $5.00 per acre, and that is five times as  much as government land in this valley was bought for outright from the  government', and the leasehold right  which the golf club wanted would  still allow the Indians to retain the  use of the ground as pasture for their  stock. Because of their unreasonableness they are not likely to get a cent  for it now from the golfers, and the  agitators around town who weie  sticking in their noses and taking on  themselves to advise the Indians may  see how much their advice was worth.

Mr. Cameron will hold services morning and evening next Sunday, July  '13th.'  Miss Brett after teaching school at  Similkameen for the past year, tendered her resignation and left for her  home in Armstrong. Miss Bretb was  greatly liked by both children and  their parents, and so they naturally  were sorry to see her leave the district.  Rev. G. T. McKenzie gave a very  nice address to the local lodge of  Orangemen on Sunday last. He spoke  of the great good that had been done  in the past all over the world by the  order, and urging them to push forward and keep on doing good in the  future, to the benefit of mankind.  jumps, and races of all kinds.

The  Okanagan Telephone Company  are certainly  tightening up  the cinch  on   the people  in both   the Okanagan  Valley and   the part .of the.. Similkameen   valley   which   has    connection  with the Government Telephone Line.  Previous  to  July 1st,  any  person on  talking over the government line'could  get'connection with the.subscribers of  the    Okanagan   Telephone  Co.   after  paying a connection toll  of ten cents.  The rate then was from ten to twenty  coins a'-'minute.according, to distance,  plus ten  cents connection.     Since the  first this is   the  way  tlie   business  is  carried   on.

Therefore  to  Vernon  it costs over -three  hundred  per cent more to talk one minute than  it did in  June.    We can  talk no more  over the government line to  Vernon  if wo have to talk to an O.

TWENTY YEARS AGO  When Robert Hogg arrived at his  shack on AVednesday evening, after  having been away a couple of days at  Princeton, he was surprised to find  that the place had been burgularized.  Everything was turned upside down,  clothes and two rifles stolen," little  keepsakes gone, which he prized more  than money. The party or parties  evidently had lots of nerve; bhey even  dressed themselves up in Mr. Hogg's  clothes leaving their own in their  place. No trace of the miscreants litis  as yet been found.  Thomas Cunningham, B. C. Fruit  Inspector, hearing a rumor that fire  blighb was among the trees'in the district, came over specially to see if  there was any truth in the statement.  This he fouud to be false in every detail, and orchardists here deny that  there is or has been any disease in the  ��������� fruit trees of Keremeos or the Similkameen vallej'. This is not the first  time that such a rumor has reached  the ears of the inspectors, and it does  or, would appear as if someone was  trying to throw discredit on the valley. No trees are in better shape and  freer from any infection than the fruit  trees in this valley. Kerenieos peaches  and apricots will stand with the best  in the world.  On Friday the 1th the Sunday School  started  out on   their   annual   picnic.  Ten  rig's  and  one auto conveyed the  scholars, teachers and friends to a few  miles   up   the   Fairview   road.     The  weather was  very threatening before  starting,   but all were in  favor of taking a chance and bent on  having a  good time  rain or shine.     Barely had  they reached the picnic grounds before a. heavy downpour   took place,  but this did not affect the spirits of  the picnickers.     The ladies set out a  most exquisite lunch which was greatly enjoyed by all.   During lunch another rain struck the canyon; this was  soon over  and only caused a temporary delay  in satisfying the appetites.  After the  repast,  sports commenced  in  real earnest.    There was a ladies'  sack race,   boys and girls tug-a-war,  The following as an item of news is  now a bib late, bub there are doubtless  many in bhe Similkameen Valley who  will still be interested in reading it.  The item is taken' from the Vernon  News of twenty years ago:  "Word comes fiom' Similkameen of  a raid'by an armed band of robbers on  Thompson's  store ab Granite   Creek.  The   store   was   sacked   and   several-  horses stolen from a neighboring ranch.  Constable Hunter and a posse followed  and the  outlaws  were  obliged  to  abandon   the   goods   and  the  horses,  which    were    taken    to   Allisons'    a  Princeton.    *After the  posse had  dis  perscd  the robbers took possession of  bhe goods again,   leaving  word  that  they   would   shoob Constable  Hunter  on sight.     Mr. Allison swore in some  specials and followed their trail, com  ing up with two of them, Mattock and  Brown.     They swam their horses to a  small island in the Similkameen river  and  prepared to make a stand.    Allison called upon Mattock to surrender.  His reply was to slip  behind his horse  and open fire.     Tin: specials  returned  the fire and Mattock fell,  shot in the  stomach.     Brown  escaped  by  swim  ming across the river, though his horse  was shot under him.    A doctor, was  sent for to  Camp Fairview,   and it is  thoughb thab  Mabbock  may  recover.

About the Worst Torture That Ever  Afflicted Mankind.  "You of tho younger generation."  snid the dentist severely, "don't appreciate the Importance of the conquest  of toothache that dentistry has made.  "Toothache is the worst torture that  ever afflicted mankind. Its pains���������  'lancinating' they are technically called  ���������are worse than the pains of cancer.  Worse than cancer; that Is the truth.  I have heard it from physicians; J  have heard it from three old people  whom cancer finally killed. They all  said that the pain of cancer at Its  worst was mild beside the pain of the  worst toothache.  "Toothache drove De Qulncy to  opium eating. De Quincy, too, says in  his 'Opium Eater*���������like all dentists, I  have the passage, by heart:  " 'No stronger expression of tooth-  ache's intensity and scorching fierceness can be imagined than this fact,  that within my private knowledge two  persons who had suffered alike under  toothache and cancer have pronounced the former to be on the scale of tor-  lure by many degrees the worse. In  both there are at times lancinating  pangs���������keen, glancing, arrowy radiations of anguish���������and upon these the  Jiasis of comparison is rested, paroxysm against paroxysm, with the result  iliai   I   have   stated.'"
