SIONKY 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.  About ten days ago the editor paid  a visit to the Nickel Plate mine for the  first time since the spring of 1912, and  was permitted to enjoy the treat of an  inspection of the lower workings in  company with the mine superintendent, W. Sampson, who was making  his round of inspection of the various  working faces where development  work is proceeding or ore being stop-  ed.  Wlu-n   we state that no  ore is now  being taken from any of the workings  on the Sunny-aides,   and that only two  or three trains a  week are being hauled out of  No. 3  tunnel on   the Nickel  Plate,   while both  electric motors arc  busy hauling  the usual daily quota of  train  loads to  keep the  mill supplied  out of No. -1   tunnel,   those  who were  most familiar with the Nickel Plate of  three or  four years'ago  and have not  seen it since, will begin  to realize how  completely  the  mine has  changed in  that time.    Were  it not for  the presence  of the  company's  store  and the  cook house and bunk houses along the  track running to No 3 tunnel, and also  the. blacksmith shop and machine shop  at the .mouth  of No. 3  tunnel,, that  upper- track would be almost deserted.  And  when   these  will  have  been  removed  to    the   lower   track   a    few-  months hence,   all the old prints and  views descriptive of  the Nickel Plate  will begin to look like ancient history.  The shelter that was formerly in use  to which  householders and all others  had to repair  when  blasting or bulldozing was  in   progress   in    any   of  the glory holes a few  years  a,go, is  sfrill   there   in   somewhat   demantled  shape,  and a climb up the hill-side to  the main Nickel  Plate glory-hole  itself, is greeted  with neither sight nor  sound of mining aetivity, arid there is  nothing  to see but the  huge yawning  gaps from bottom and sides leading to  apparently interminable darkness  in  regions'far below.  Between this old Nieket Plate glory  hole and the workings served by.No. 3  tunnel there is now little or-nothing in  the way of mining in prbgress,and one  or two machines stoping is about the  sum of it; but the big caverns out of  which past dividends were hewn and  in which some of tlie largest car barns  in Vancouver might be stowed away  and look in comparison little bigger  than toolboxes in an adit or station,  will give some evidence of how huge  the Nickel Plate ore bodies are and  have been. A few pillars and walls  of ore here and there are still left  standing for the support of the mine,  but these in time will be taken out  and this portion of the mine allowed  to cave in.  Below No. 3 tunnel stoping is underway and there is here also an enormous reserve of ore broken down ready  for transportation by the electric ore  trains to the head of the gravity tram.  This amount of reserve of ore broken  down is .-til the time increasing and is  now estimated at fully 23000 tons. It  is in this zone and at vvhn.c now looks  to be an exalted portion of it that we  were shown a point which was the  bottom of the mine when Mr. Beam  first came to examine it in 19*19, and  from what we happen to know of the  views o\' the then manager, it was not  only the bottom but in his opinion the  last bottom. All around it and below,  there are now quarried out enormous  chambers that are beginning to resemble those which we have before  referred to above No. 3, and leading  from some of the lower of these chambers .ire large circular o're chutes cub  out of the solid rock leading down to  the level of No. 4 tunnel. One of these  is 110 feet deep and 12 or more feet in  diameter so there is little or no danger  of the ore ever choking up  in its  de  scent to the trapsifi-ofej-g^'ii.-h  leaded by gravity into tne cars on the  level of No.-I tunnel. Complete connection was made between the workings from No. 3'and No. 4 tunnels  some time ago and the whole mine  may now be traversed underground  from the lowest incline below No. 4 to  the glory hole which marks the point  of the earliest discovery.  Below No. 4 tunnel one incline lias  been driven over four hundred feet  on a huge new ore body of which  nothing was known .by the old company, and from this incline, drifts and  stopes have been opened until there  are now mine faces, in-all directions  from which an enormous daily tonnage of ore could lit- furnished to almost any capacity of plant they might  see fib to instal. Nor is this the nnlv  new ore body they know of below tins  level, and this, is evidenced by the  new Dickson incline begun last October which is a three compartment  shaft for double trackage and nian-  niay and already down over 200 feet.  While the first incline from which the  extent of this new ore body is being  proven, runs at the comparatively flat  angle of 24 degiees;to conform with  the general dip of the ore bodies, the  Dickson incline is being driven at the  steeper pitch of 30 degrees which will  cause it to dip under the huge lenticular deposit upon which it was started and will .dip either into or under  other- new similar deposits to be encountered lower down, It is to be  driven straight as an arrow at this  regular grade regai-tiless of what minor may not be encountered in the way  of ore bodies until it reaches a depth  of 3000 feet. It will be the great Ap-  pitui way of transit i'^i- the ores of the  Nickel Plate for a decade to come, and  he would be a. f-.ihit-hearted seer who  will not prophesy that in that time it  will not have carried out millions'..of  tons of ore dropped to ib from ore  chutes 1000 feet or .-more above.

A WIERD SOMERSAULT  Flying Machine  Executes   this  Daring  Acrobatic Stunt in Mid-Air  An occurrence which seems incredible, but which is vouched for by three  prominent French officers, is recounted in Aeronautics. This isnothingniore  or less than a soniorsnulb in the air-  which befell Oapt. Aubry when flying  a Deperdussin for the purpose of effect-  ingr a reconnaissance over the region  of Villerupt. "I was returning  after a, 35-tninufce flight," ��������� the  Captain assures us, "facing a wind of  about twenty-two miles per hour.  My altitude vvas about 2,500 feet. At  the moment of descent, a series of  violent gusts struck the machine, and  on the throttling down and switching  off. I was obliged to dive in order to  make the controls effective. As I dipped the nose of the machine, a, couple  of quick, successive gusts struck the  top of the main planes and placed me  in a vertical position. While endeavoring to manipulate the elevator, 1.  found the machine had .taken me in a  peifeebly vertical chute to less than  1.500 feet. ft here adopted a horizontal attitude upside down and proceeded to eifecb a tail-first vol plane."  Somehow the pilot retained his sent.  Continuing, he says, "The machine  then gradually took up the vertical  position again, describing a gigantic  'S',while doing so. Flattening out.

A VERNON JURY AGAIN  MADE IN CANADA  ,,Buy Canadian-made goods. It will  mean the employment of many  additional .thousands of men and women in the factories of Canada.. It  will mean greater activity and more  independence of indusrial. life of the  country. It will mean new factories  for the cities and towns of Canada. It  will mean a more profitable home  market than the present one for the  farmers of Canada. It will result in  fiicher inspiring the confidence of  British investors in the stability of the  business of Canada.." ��������� Fredericton  Gleaner.  METEOROLOGICAL.  At the assizes in Vernon last week a  Vernon jury failed bo agree in the case  of the Indian Spintlum who shot Constable Kindness. Murder after murder has been committed right in Vernon in the presence of witnesses who  testified to the court what they had'  seen and heard, and yet the culprit  would.invariably get off. So often has  this occurred that counsel for the  worst criminals elsewhere in the province make application for change of  venue to Vernon tind this affair of the  Indian Spintlum is another- case of  that.  In view of what Iras so often occurred there in burning assassins loose,  the Attorney Genera I assumes a very  grave responsibility in allowing a  c������hange of venue from other parts of  province to Vernon.

No man knows exactly what  he will do in a critical moment until  he has been tested, and even then he  is not sure how he would behave the,  next time. But it is just to commend  the man who does rise to a serious  occasion to do the heroic thing.  ' The Japanese'hero who dived under  the market wharf in the effort to  rescue a. drowning child gave proof of  the qualities which have made his  nation great He showed courage,  initiative, and resource. If he had  perished his name would be on the lips  of us all, but his deed would have been  no finer than ib was.���������News-Avertiser  Last week anotablegatheringat New  Westminster celebrated a nobable  event. That event was the inauguration of party government in the conduct of British Columbia's provincial  affairs. The public business of the  province had got into interminable  confusion under previous governments  and the finances were in a. fearful  mess. It took a high degree of  courage on the part of bhe administration to inaugurate the reforms necessary to rehabilitate the credit of the  province and lo put matters on a,  proper business basiscvvitliout unduly  stinting bhe outlay required in a young  growing province.  Under the McBride administration  the provincial revenue has incensed  from three million dollars to ten and a  half million dollars a year and <i bank  overdraft 'of one million has been  changed into a cash balance of nine  millions.  Ten thousand nine hundred and fifty  six (10950J miles of roads and trails  have been increased to eighteen thousand three hundred and fifty five miles  (1S355). nearly all of which is in roads.  The University has been established  and endowed.  Normal schools and night schools  have been created and the whole curriculum amplified.  Three thousand miles of railway  will have been added by 1915 and complete provincial control guaranteed  over three hundred miles.  An area of 260.000 acres of surveyed  lands in 1903 has been increased to  5,450.000 in 1911. "  The 'iriiner-al output of bhe province  which in 1902 was only $17,486,550 and  the.ruining industry of the province  altogether in. a bad way because of the  lack of a, stable and s.-iiu; mining .policy  has increased to $82;'G00)C*O0''.ii 1������12 and  confidence has been restored among  ruining investors.  The agricultural, lumbering and  fishing industries have enjoyed a like  return of prosperity under the present  regime.  To give thanks for., these'achievements vvas the object of the celehra-  bion in New'Westminster and it vvas a  most laudable object.

These subsidies, calculated on a minimum of }}i3,200 per mile, will total  over a million dollars which the  Kettle Valley will receive from the  Dominion government.  British Columbia gets .$27,000 of the  Federal grant for agriculture this  year.  The Finance Minster says that conditions will he studied between now  and next session of parliament with a  view to revision of the tariff.  Canadian Senators are becoming  alarmed as to the result of their action  on the Naval Bill. The proper time to  lie sorry would have been befoie the  fault was committed.  On Sunday the Hedley base-ball  team wont up to play with Princeton  club a return match for the one played  clown here a few weeks ago, but when  they got up there, they foun d that  their opponnients were nob to be the  Princeton team but one from Copper-  Mountain. However, as it was agame  thev went up for ib did nob make nnv  particular difference to them what  team they were to play against. The  Copper Mountain aggregation were  able to give them a good game, and  but for the grounds which were unsatisfactory on account of the outfield  being cut across by a deep ditch and a  sidewalk several feet high which  interfered with play, they would have  enjoyed it. There vvas the usual difficulty in getting the full team of regular players to go away from home  to play and the places of those who  could not go had to ho filled by others.  Billy Corrigan pitched the first six  innings for Hedley and pub up effective work until relieved for the 7th  and Sth by Fink after which he went  back and pitched the ninth. Copper  Mounbi'iii used several pitchers, and  with the exception of the first inning  when Petiie farmed out three Hedley  batter-s with none out and three men  on bases they were not myscerious.  After that Hedley had little difficulty  in solving all ofierings.

A BAS BOSTOCK
One thing is very sure and-that is
that, if any measure which may be
conl em plated for reform of bhe Senate
should involve sending these, old chaps
back to the people, a certain senator
named Hewib Bostoek will hear something from the electors of Yale-Cariboo. This would enable them to understand that in a country like Canada'where the representative principle
of government is supposed to be supreme they must .not take the liberty
of setting themselves above the people
by thwarting the will of the electors
who have spoken through their responsible representatives that Canada
should no longer sponge upon Great
Britain for naval protection bub should
grant immediate'and effective aid.
The miserable subterfuge of that old
arch-humbug  Sir George lioss-in killing the  Naval Bill and   thwarting the
will of the people of Canada tinder the
pretense of deferring to th'em,   is in itself trial enough to the patience, of the
electors   of Yale-Cariboo,   hut the   act
of senator Hewit Bostoek  who claims
to represent Yale-Cariboo in the upper
chamber in seconding the ltoss amendment,. is   the.   last straw..  The   Ross
amendment   which   nullified   the   bill
pending   reference   to   the  people,   instead of being a deference to Canadian
public  opinion is an insult to ib.    The
Borden   administration had as clear a
mandate from bhe people of Canada to
pass the  Naval Bill as   they had to do
anything   slsc upon   which they   have
formulated legislation  since they took
office in 1911.  This fact has been made
plain    on    various   occasions    by  Mr.
Borden   who   has   been   able  to  show
both   from   the records  of the   House
and   from   public   speeches   made   by
liim at .various times and   places  during   tlie  campaign   of  1911,   that   the
Naval   Bill which   he and   his supporters put through the Mouse vvas merely a. faithful discharge of the promises
he had made to the   public on the subject of Canadian aid to   naval defence.
Sir George Boss has   for years posed
as a   groat Imperialist   with perfervid
utterances at irregular intervals-of his
devotion to the mother country across
the seas and the common bond of Empire, which ib now  appears was nob to
he understood   by him   as  implying a
common   burden for that  empire's defence.    Sir  George in   addition   to being a  good Briton   in his own estimation, wanted at all   times to he considered   an out and out Canadian.     xVIr.
Bostoek'on the other hand is an Englishman, with more than the average
Englishman's avidity to piecipitate
himself into Canadian politics and he
eared not what the stripe of politics
should -be as long .-is it carried him
into the Canadian Parliament. He ab
all events should be conversant with
the hidden borne by the British taxpayer in the maintenance of a navy
for the protection of the Empire of
which no part received more real benefit than Canada which has never been
asked to pay a-cent towards the upkeep.
It is a well known fact that when he
first offered himself as a candidate for
the  Canadian 'Parliament in the waning days of  the. old   Conservative   regime he was so blissfully indifferent to
Canadian   political'dogma   and   shibboleth that he first sought, bhe Conservative    nomination   in    Yale-Cariboo
which ,-it that time included Kootenay
ns well,   but the  sitting  member, -Mr.
J. A.   Mara",'"was  not-possessed of the
���virtue' ol resignation, even in fa vor of
so eminent and opulent an aspirant as
Mr! Bostoek who was. heralded by the
Canadian   press as the possessor of an
income of: $50,000 per annum.     It was
an argument sufficiently strong bo obtain   for him   the   Liberal  nomination
against  Mr. Mara and   he entered the
arena for one of the most extravagant
campaigns evei.witnessed in the province.     The election took place in June
1890.     Mr. B.'s first move after receiving the nominatioirvvas to engage the
services of  Mr.. Mara's former election
agent  and he   was in   the . market.for
anything  from a  thoroughbred' collie
pup   to a newspaper or a'stock ranch.
The -result of  bins  together With the
tide which   had set in all  over bhe Dominion against the government which
had baken   its political  life in its  own
hands in obedience to a mandate of the
highest  court   in   the  .Empire   in   the
matter of the Remedial Bill,  of course
landed him in Ottawa, and then began
a pitch-in   for his pile.      How much of
it went, to   the general .campaign fund
and   how   much   to   greedy   political
camp followers we are nob prepared to
say.     At all   events ib  is a.  matter  of
history   that   liy the  end  of  his   fitsb
parliament  in   the  Commons   lie,  was
advised by his solicitor tornake an assignment for certain financial reasons,
and  ab the end of  the  parliamentary
term he   was relieved of   the necessity
of another campaign for the Commons
and was given a seat in the Senate instead by  Mr. Laurier,   while  Mr. Gallagher  took ui)  the task.     Ever since
then he has been Senator Bostoek, and
it was  only a  little   while afterwards
when we had so prominent a Liberal
as the   late  II. H. Cook   or some such
such   name as  that,  from   Muskoka,
make a. charge that senatorial appointments  in Canada  about that  time required  a cash   payment  to   the  campaign fund of $10,000, said demand being made  of himself  for a seat  in the
upper chamber  by  emissaries  of the
"powers that  were," presidedjovei- by
Sir Wilfrid.
GUARDING PAPER MONEY.
Checks  Against  Thef'.s   While   In   the
Process of Printing.
The paper money of the Government is brought in iron bound chests,
locked and sealed, from the bureau
of engraving,and printing to the cash
room of the treasury and there delivered upon receipt to. the chief of
the division of issue in sheets of four
bills each. They are complete, with
signature and numbers, except for
the seal, which is printed upon them
with power- presses irr a small apart-'
merit  under  the  cash   room.
These presses are worked by two
people, usually a man pressman and
a. woman feeder or ' assistant; When
the seal has been imprinted upon
the bills'they, ai counted automatically, bound'in packages of equal
numbers by bands of paper, marked,
signed' by the persons who have
handled them, and passed into the
adjoining room, where the sheets are
cut and the bills are recounted and
inspected, so that the imperfect ones
may be thrown out. They are then
bound into packages of equal amounts
and taken to the drying vault, where
they lie upon the shelves for several
Weeks until the ink has become perfectly dry.
Every safeguard that ingenuity can
contrive is placed around these transactions, and the chief of division can
t-ell which of his hundred or more
subordinates have touched the different, bills in the vaults. He knows
who received them, who printed the
seal, who wrapped and cut them,
for every package is numbered and
its history is recorded in an enormous book.
The combination of checks is so
complete that the chief of division
would know within twenty minutes
if a single bill was missing, but he
has never had occasion' to test this
knowledge except twice within fifteen
years. Only two attempts have ever
been made to steal-the.'money of the
Government vyhile_.it is in this stage
of its  history.

OUTWARD DISPLAY.
It   Characterizes   the   Social   Life   AI!
Over   Italy.
Social life among the Italians is
really not so different from social life
in other countries, although certain
national "peculiarities'.'must be remarked, says Harry..Qurmby in Leslie's Weekly. Italians even in the
most elaborate homes do not wear
evening dress for dinner unless there
is a party. , The particularly fashionable wear a smoking coat 'and a
black tie, but the plain black coat
is more universally used. All over
Italy social life is characterized by
great love of outvyard display. In
Naples particularly the afternoon
drive or prometi-'^e is important to
reputation and happiness. The following will illustrate the prevailing
feeling: An American who had taken
a flat in a palazio, the first floor of
which was occupied by a noble family in reduced circumstances, noticed
every day a servant going up the
steps carrying a pair of carriage
doors. Upon investigating he found
that the noble family shared a carriage with other families and that
each had its coat of arms upon its
own doors.
Fewer Italians go to the famous
watering places than people of any
other country. The popular annual
tonic of the Italians consists of eating grapes. The treatment includes
grape juice and grapes, as much as
can be taken, in the morning and at
noon a rare beefsteak. In the afternoon more grapes and grape juice
are partaken of, and at 7 in the evening another rare beefsteak. This is
continued for three weeks, when the
patient is said to look and feel like
a, different person. The grapes purify
the system, and the beef acts as a
tonic and keeps up the strength, according to the Italian physicians.

The cement works at East Princeton  -are expected to begin operations this  week.  Airs. Frank Logs-don is reported to  he dangerously ill of pneumonia in  Princeton.  .]. A. Schubert came down from  Tulamcen last week find was in town  over Sunday.  "���������Vaccinate" will now be the watchword in the valley a nil Dv. "McEwen is  prepared with a fresh supply of vac-  ���������cine points.  A locust tree in full bloom at the  corner of J. Wirth's lot, has been an  object of beauty and r:i re 'fragrance  ���������during the past week.  f. H. Hallet of Greenwood accompanied by one of his boys was in town  for a couple of days last week on their  way to Copper Mountain.  A local cricket game vvas to have  been played between.picked teams hut  the accident to the captain of the club  caused it to be called off for .-i while.  As we go to press we learn that  'Tommy Corrigan has had another- serious turn. The other-spell which he  had since the operation vvas performed  was traceable to violent exercise.  Notice���������All accounts due lo Schubert's supply stores will in the future  be paid into the Bank of li. N. A. instead of to Mr. Byall who was authoi-  ized to collect up to the present time.  Dr. McEwen came hack from LytLon  last week and -was accompanied by  Mrs. McEwen and the baby. It was  Mrs. McEwen's intention to stay a  while hut the baby became ill and she  concluded to bring him back home.  George. B. Lyon went to Spokane  last week and on Saturday he returned bringing with him .Mrs. Lyon and  Wesley, who will spend three months'  vacation in Hedley before Mrs. Lyon  returns to resume her violin studies to  which she has given her full attention  under tutors for the past two years.  G. P. Jones returned from the coast  ���������on Monday, coming in by way of  Merritt where he spent Sunday. While  on the coast he divided his time between Vancouver and Victoria, ancl in  both places met many old Hedleyites,  most of whom appear- to  well.  be doing  Air. T. Walter Beam rsturned on  Tuesday from his home -in Denver,  bringing hack with him'his L wife and  ..'daughter, who will -'holiday for a  couple of months or more in Hedley  and vicinity. Miss Beam has just  graduated from the college she was attending and Mr. Beam managed to  get back in time for the event.  Rumor was- current; for a few days  of smallpox in Oroville, but the circumstance is now thoroughly vouched  for and the health authorities have  been notified with a view to taking  steps; to. prevent the spread. That  train from Oroville has been blamed  for the spread of numerous' maladies  in this valley and too great care cannot bo exercised in this case.  The moving pictures in Fraternity  Hall continue to'draw good houses  and most of the people in town manage to see them on some one of the.  two nights. Last week the pictures  were very plain and steady and the  subjects [entertaining. Most of the  films were simple melodrama vyith a  little comic interlarded. This week  there will be an exhibition on Saturday night only as the hall will he engaged for Friday.  A large blue grouse was raised out  of" the hushes near the school tap one  evening last week, and when disturbed it Hew up on the roof of the school  house and remained there for some  time. It is not often these birds show  this amount of lameness or indifference to civilization, and if the woods  are so full of them that this one had  to wander oil" into town for a change;  of society, it does not look as if the  species would very soon become extinct.  An accident happened Jack Howe,  captain of the,cr-iukct team, on Saturday evening, but not in playing cricket. He vvas working as electrician's  helper on a pole down near the Kud-  geis residence and was up at the lop  of the polo when he received a shock  from a 110 volt wire which made him  lose his balance, and having no belt to  suppnit him at the time, he fell from'  the pole a distance of about 213 feet and  lit on the back of his neck. The shook  from the fall was a great deal more  severe than the electi ic one which  preceded it and it was feared at first  that there were internal injuries. He  vvas taken to the hospital ancl a later  examination by the. doctor showed  that no hones were broken and the extent of the injury only a severe shaking up from which he was expected lo  recover in a few clays.  Tommy Daly is .certainly making  good in the Northwestern League in  pitching for* Spokane.' In a svvatfest  with' Seattle, which ��������� is leading the  league, Spokane had the short end of  a 18 to 5 score; but when it is seen how  the runs were put together it is very  clear that the fault vvas not Tommy's.  Spokane used four pitchers, three of  whom preceded Tommy, and off them  Seattle garnered their whole 13 runs  in three innings before he vvas called  to the mound. Tommy pitched the  next five innings in which he struck  out five men while Fuller-tun the  Seattle pitcher who won the game,  only struck out two men in the whole  nine innings. Seattle didn't bat out  their ninth innings ancl they only got  five hits and one pass oil' Daly who  didn't allow them to score on any'one  of the five.  Deer  have  been  giving  trouble on  Jackson's  ranch near Sterling Creek.  They  have  been   browsing   the fruit  trees and did considerable harm.   This  has  been  going on for quite a  while  and   a, few  days  ago   12   were   seen.  There  used    to  be  provision   in   the  Game laws to enable  farmers to shoot  deer destroying crops at any .season of  the  year,   but, whether   that-  obtains  now  in   British   Columbia or  not we  are not  in position   to say,   as we are  no  longer  receiving statutes of  each  session  as formerly ancl amendments  are   being made-   almost every   year.  The editor of the  Gazette has been in  the  publishing  business  nearly all of  the time since 1SS3 and has had experience  of  various governments in   vai-  ious  proviiu-es  from all  of which   we  have  invariably  received each   year a  copy   of   the   statutes   for   the   year  which  were sent to  papers regardless  of their 'party affiliations.     Why  it  should  be different in British Columbia  at tlr.e  present time  is something  we are not  prepared to explain.    If it  should   be   on   grounds   of   economy  there is absolutely  nothing  in ib   and  the public will be slow to applaud the  species of, economy,  which   will ��������� masquerade iii   the   garb   of   picayunish  cheese-paring, for it is they who iniisb  suffer in this case  through wit-holding  information   they have a right  to get  in the public prints.

Mr.��������� McKenzic was called away to  Princeton on Saturday to conduct the  funeral service of Mr. and Mrs. Osborne's little boy. who passed away  last week.  Time and tide waits for no man;  neither does the case of Rex vs. Mc-  Cauley cut tiny figure, for on Sunday  ���������Tune 1st, the news should read, at  Kelovvna, to Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm  McCanley a son, and a ten pound one  at that.  Mr. S F. Tolmie, chief veterinary  inspector of B.C.. came in on Monday's train having- just completed an  inspection trip through the Kootenay  country. He stayed the day in Keremeos and while here inspected the  horse, "Beautiful and Best."  The trustees of the Keremeos school  board haye secured , the services of  Miss Margaret .1. Scott as teacher of  the local.school.- Miss Scott is at present teaching at Princeton where she  has proved very successful in the past.  She will he greatly missed by her  many friends jit-Princeton who will be  pleased to hear that she is not moving  out of the valley but only to a sister  town not far away.  The boys were ready, but not the  weather*. We are now referring to  the cleaning up stunt which was to  have taken place in the park. The  cakes were made, the ice cream (friz),  the ladies of course knowing the boys  would not like, very well to work out  in the rain thought it would be best  to feed the hungry so getting together  the nifty dishes joined forces with  Mis. Keeler and the spread was on at  the restaurant. Everything vvas lovely and everything went well: s=o there  you are.    Thanks to the ladies.  On Monday a little Ford automobile  almost hit town on the My. There  were three, occupants who wished to  pass the customs on the double shuffle.  .Billy got through his ham and eggs  on the jump and had the papers fixed  up tis speedily as possible. After they  were gone we found that these parties  had news to the effect that a large  piece of land had been thrown open to  ���������settlement somewhere neur Douglas  Lake, hence the rush to get in on the  opening. We immediately got in  touch with Nicola only to find that  that town knew nothing about such  an  interesting item.  tried but the reverse, happened. It  appears the charge in the first place  was that of stealing and it seemed at  the .last moment' the prosecution wanted the charge changed In Unit, .of receiving stolon goods knowing them to  be stolen.  Six Russians came into town Friday  enroute for the, states. They hoarded'  the train safe and sound hut on its  arrival at Chopaka were- held as they  had not enough spondulix between  them to enable them to meet Uncle  Sam's requirements so they were shipped back to Keremeos where they put  in a couple of days sojourning in the  town and taking the cure by bleeping  in the open. Very little could be done  with these men as none of them could  speak English and it was hard to make  them 'understand anything. Monday  morning arrived with these husky  iniinigiaiits, who had been in the country only two weeks, looking a little  gaunt." Luckily for them Mr. Wei*--  denholf. of Werde.nhoff, Jacobson &  Co., was mi the train and sent them  up to work on the construction.  J. A.

The city jointer may get  his stock a ti'ifle cheaper by saving the loc-il freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of work.
