An event of no little social interest  ���������was the opening of the Tenuis Court  on Saturday afternoon'. ' Tea was  served by the ladies and the club supplied ice cream.. Of course as representative of the Gazette I helped'to  get away with" some of the  latter.  The Murray Comedy ^Company have  arrived and'gave" their first performance on .Monday night. Steward's  Hull was not. as crowded as I * have  seen it, but as the company are giving  a good show there will probably be a  a much larger avidience on Tuesday.  Since Ganth'ony gave his wonderful  fiasco hore,_it is hard for a travelling  company'lo get a -full house on the  firstnight. Penticton has learned  pretty thoroughly the old maxim  "Once bitten twice shy." ,  The editor of the Press went after  the merchants in town ��������� rather rough  shod in his last issue, and some of them  got a little mad. I am told that one of,  them got so very hot that he took* his  advertisement out of the paper, lhope  th*ey won't all follow his example or  our local paper will have to " he filled  up with reading matter instead of the  highly edifying articles which now appear under the heading of ads.

Now, if he were a cautious man  he would have got someone else to  have written it, and then, of course he  could have disclaimed' all responsibility, Just imagine an editor being so  undiplomatic as to tell his subscribers  what he thinks of them ! why, the  idea's simply ridiculous. An editor is  supposed to run the establishment  where the especial brand of toffee is  manufactured, and he is always expected to hand it out to his consumers  by the car-load; but to give them acid  drops instead is as bad as giving'a kid  sails and "senna' without the usual  spoonful of jam.  CATCHING A TRAIN.  If you wish  to catch  the train at  Keremeos it is prudent to allow more  .than two ho\irs and a half to make it  iu..  The distance from Hedley to Ker-  emec*s is generally;understood to be 20  miles, ������ilthough some say it is 22.   On  Friday last J. Innis undertook to put  the editor there in  two  hours and a  half, and did it, although it was a very  narrow squeak.   Under ordinary circumstances   he  could   have  done'it  without-any-trouble, but on that occasion he   had   the  misfortune   to get  tangled up with freight   teams   and  other vehicles.  ."It seemed as if all the  freight teams in the Similkameen had  business to do on the road that clay,  and in that particular part of the day,  and added to this the railway freighters were moving No; 1 Camp.   As a  result, between meeting and passing  freight outfits, some  twelve different  ones were encountered" en route.   To  sit at a turnout on a grade waiting for  a heavy freight- outfit to. pull up and  get past with the precious minutes all  the while slipping away was weariness  to the flesh.   Allowing an average delay of three minutes to each, here was  over half an hour chopped out of the  two and a half, and when Webster's  ferry was reached only six minutes remained. Nine drivers out of ten would  have given up in despair,   but Jimmy  and his ponies were game.    It was no  mere " post-boy's trot reserved for the  alley," but a genuine whirlwind finish,  and the buggy pulled up at the station  platform just as  the conductor was  expanding Jus   chest   to   shout   "all  aboard."   Then G. N. R. agent Stevens  hustled a tieket.'and in a jiffy we were  whirling clown the lower Similkameen.  When Jimmy  Innis says  he'll make  you  catch a train you can count on  him getting there ;  but all the same it  is wise to allow a. little lee-way.  And now the bush fire period is with  us onc*e again. The man who at this  season of the year, goes into the bush  and throws down a lighted match or  wantonly starts afire, is in the same  category as "the man who rocks the  boat," and it is to be hoped that both  species will ultimately become extinct.  It is reassuring to feet at thi.s time,  that the provincial government has established better facilities than ever existed before for protecting the. timber  of the country from the ravages of  forest fires.���������Ex.  Camp Hedley:  While there were many- drawbacks  to lessen both production and development in mining in Camp Hedley in  1907, the year was nevertheless marked  by much good work and important  results. '���������  Nickel PLA-m���������On the Nickel Plate  group, owned by the Yale Mining Co..  the total neglect of development work  which marked the  year 1906 and the  confining of all work  to, extraction,  has, during the past year, given place  to ������������������.���������sanerand more,progressive policy.  The'present manager, Mr. F. A. Ross,  who entered upon his duties about the  last month of 1906, had it difficult task  to perform in  re-organizing the entire  concern, for it was not alone in the"  complete   cessation   of   development  work that the enterprise had suffered  under his predecessor, but in the feverish anxiety to extract from the richer  portions of the mine and make a good  production, the plant had been driven  beyond its capacity  and was on the  verge of going to pieces for lack of  care and repairs.   Unfortunately for  Mr. Ross, but in a sense providential,  the unprecedented rigor of the winter  of 1907 froze up the flume, cutting off  the water supply in  the second  week  in January, compelling a shutdown of  mining  and   milling    operations  for  three months.   This period at stoppage  was ..taken advantage, of for a complete  overhauling of the mill and-flume, and  the middle of April saw everything  again  in  full  swing.     A  systematic  course of'development.was laid out for  the season and rigidly executed, new  ore bodies being found on the Nickel  Plate   and    Sunnysides   and   on   the  Woodland fraction convenient to the  electric tram line and worked by glory  hole.    Two new glory holes and three  new inclines were opened and new ore  bodies   were   located^ and  opened in  stopes which the previous management  had abandoned.    In  the exploratory  work, diamond drilling was most effectively  employed,   complete  sampling  and record of the cores being made,  and 7,800 feet bored during the season.  The tonnage of ore mined and milled  during tlie year, notwithstanding the  loss of three months' time,, was 31,756  tons, principally from the Nickel Plate  and Sunnysides claims.   The  ore  carries values in gold of about $14 a ton.  There was no further extension of  the plant, although many changes and  additions were made that were necessary to meet the wants of a more complete system of operating.   By  them  the duty per stump has been iucreased  from 2.9 to 3.35 tons every twenty-four  hours.    Among tlie changes  was  the  addition   of  another  30-foot ������ conical-  bottomed slime  tank to the cyanide  plant, and extension of the assay laboratory by addition of a room for preparing the samples so as   to   seem  greater accuracy.   New head-gear was  also put in at the central station on  the gravity tramway,  which has materially increased the capacity of the  tramway.      The   completion   of   the  Great Northern Railway to Keremeos  shortened haulage of the concentrates  from 52 miles to 20 miles, and, as construction of the grade to Hedley is in  progress at Hedley itself, it is fully expected that before half of 1908 has gone  the Daly Reduction Co. will bo able to  load concentrates   directly  from  the  mill into  the  Great Northern cars on  either a side track or a short spur.  Kingston.���������On the Kingston group,  owned by the Kingston Gold and Copper Mining Co., development work lias  been prosecuted steadily during the  year. About $6,000 was expended,  with great improvement to the proper  ty. Most of the work was done on the  War Horse mineral claim1 and resulted  in showing up a considerable extent of  ore in which copper showed up in  greater quantities than before. Much  of this work was in surface cuts and in  tunnels, which makes it difficult .to  convey any relative idea of the.extent  of work done. The completion of the  railway to Hedley this year wiH enable  shipments to be made,  opinent has reached  power is necessary, the company will  have to deal with this matter before  much, more is done.  The Oregon groupof four claims on  Sixteen-Mile creek was given considerable work during the year, there being  about 150 feet of tunnel driven. The  Oregon carries copper with encouraging gold values. The'principal owners  are I. L. Deardorff and F. H. French.  The Golden Zone group of & claims  is owned by J. J. Marks,' Paul Brod-  fiugen and James Murphy,'and during  the year T. H. Maiks~"obtained an interest. Steps were taken to place this  .property on the producing list. A five-  stamp mill has been procured arid a  road has been made to draw it in to  the mine, togetlier with building material and supplies, and buildings have  been put up to accommodate the men.  The Florence group of three claims  witnesses considerable development  each year and 1907 has been no exception. Mr. George .M. Gilbert has obtained an interest with Thomas Bradshaw in the property.  A number of other mineral claims  have had the'usual assessment done by  individual holders, and on various  Crown-granted claims the owneis have  done some work.  An important feature of the year  was the work done by Charles Camsell,  of the Canadian Geologic-d Survey.  The work occupied the entire summer  and is not yet completed. It consisted  of obtaining data for. a topographical  map of the camp, covering three miles  east and west and four miles north and*  south. -The,"scale'of the map is Eb be  1,000 feet to the inch, with contour intervals of 100 feet. Geological studies  were carried on in conjunction with  the topographic work, special attention  being paid to the occurrence of ore deposits, their origin and history. Mr.  Camsell was assisted by J. J. Allen 'and  A. O. Hayes, and in the topographic  work had also the assistance of W. H.  Boyd. In this connection itmay also  be mentioned that special attention  was paid by the manager of the Daly  Reduction Co. to working out structural geology on the Nickel Plate  group, in connection with the diamond  drilling done during the season. By  this means much accurate data has  been obtained.  Krugeb Mountain.  Under the auspices of the Dominion  Fairview Copper Company, Ltd.,  of  London, Eng., the following work was  done.   The company's properties consist of the Waneta,  Favorite and the  Waterdown Fraction.   These properties were operated  by the company  during  the summer and fall of 1907,  and although  the showing  was  not  very encouraging, still quite, a bit of  work was done.  A shaft was extended  on the Waneta from former working,  to a depth of 50 feet, with fair results ;  a shaft on the  Waterdown Fraction  was sunk to about 55 feet and a tunnel,  was run 18 feet. Work has been closed  down for the winter and a member of  the company's board of directors is expected to arrive early in spring to examine and report on  the continuance  of the work.    On the Favorite a shaft  was sunk 18 feet, late in the fall, also  another shaft about 15 feet.   The total  force employed was  an average of six  men.   There will no  doubt he a. resumption  of the work, as the results  show a copper ore fie for smelting.  Continued Next Week.  V. E. & E. PROGRESS.  Steam Shovel  Makes Another Move ���������-  High Water Causes   Some  Inconvenience.  On Thursday last the steam shovel  finished its stunt at the south end of  Brushy Bottom and (in Friday morning began to move to-the next location  at the north end, where they expected  to get to work in a little less than ii  week's time. The new location for No.  1 Camp is on the bench above Wm.  Bryant's cabin. Tx-estling has been  constructed over a portion of the fill  to be made on Brushy, Bdttom and is'  now being extended southward to meet'  the end of Budd's fill.     .  A gang of Italians are" at work in a  cut on the face of the bench between  Shelder's and Bradshaw's.  - The longest gap now remaining between Hedley and the point where the  railway crosses the. river this side of  the month of Ashnola creek," ,is a  stretch of filling between Shelder's and  Charlie Allison's. --It is all a fill and-  most of it light and will be done by  the steam " shovel. ���������>  .The rock bluff work was reduced to  verj' small proportions at the end of  last  week.   '  Between the rock bluff and the end  of the Howard fill, a gang of men are  at work to close up the gap and they  are getting the dirt to do it with from'  an excavation' in the mountain side  opposite. *���������  The only portions of the new grade  between Keremeos and Hedley to suffer from the high water is a piece of  filling across the river opposite Cold  creek, but the damage is not at all  serious. (  Down at the Armstrong bridge the  work train and a strong force of dagoes  was busy protecting * the grade to the  south of the bridge by rip-rapping it  with rock obtained from the roadside  south of Chopaka.  FRENCH���������BROWN.  Anna Beatrice, the third daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. A. Brown, of Sapper-  ton, was united in matrimony yesterday morning by the Rev. W. A. Bar-  ra'clbugh, to'Mr.'F; H. French, of Hedley, B.C. The bride was attended by  Miss Leah Brown, and the groom was  supported by Mr. J. P. Watson of.���������Victoria. The young couple left on a  honeymoon trip to Victoria, and will  take iip "their, residence in Hedley.  ���������News-Advertiser. **;''���������'���������  The above item from the News-Advertiser will be of interest to the many  friends of the contracting parties in  Hedley, where they are\both well and  favorably known. The groom is manager of Shatfords LimitV^d, and the  bride spent several monthshere a year  ago visiting her sister Mrs. J.'J. Marks.  The.y are expected to return to. Hedley  the end of this week, and will take up  their residence on Kingston Avenue.  The Gazette extends congratulations,  and wishes the young couple happiness and prosperity.  JOE CAPILANO   SEES   LAURIER.  It will not be a surprise to those  who know him to hear that Smith  Curtis is again n candidate. Mr. Curtis appeal's to have gone solely into  the business of running for office.  About thirty years ago there was a  man named Wilkes in Owen Sound,  Ontario, whose only occupation was a  candidate. He entered the field every  year as a candidate for some municipal office, and annually went down, to  de.feat.The writer lost track of him  for about twenty years, but being* in  Winnipeg in 1893 he found Mr. Wilkes  Joe Capilano and twenty other British Columbia Indian chiefs waited on  Sir Wilfrid Laurier last week and  presented to the premier the complaint of their lands being taken by  away by the whites and of not having  received the allotments to which they  were alleged to be entitled years ago  under agreements with Sir James  Douglas. Many years ago Indians also had hunting and fishing rights free  from restrictions of regulations imposed thereon,  The Premier promised tn take the  matter up with the Indian Department and with the B.-C. government.  The Indians wore native costumes,  and attracted great notice on the  streets of Ottawa. They stood for a  group photograph on Parliament Hill.  On Thursday morning they created  a great sensation by assembling in  front of the Parliament Buildings and  singing "The Maple Leaf Forever."  A great crowd was present and the Indians were vigorously applauded.   '  still running for office, and still being  defeated. If alive, there should be a  strong bond of sympathy between him  and Mr. Curtis after the federal campaign in Kootenay.���������Ledge.

It  will hardly be  denied that such  an arrangement would be looked upon  with  disfavor'by  the  German government, although  it may be doubtful if the feeling  would  find  expression   in  any  overt act.    The  change in the  position of Britain  as a world  power lias very greatly altered  since the accession of His Majesty.    During the latter part of  tlie life of tlie late  Queen,  our  nation  stood  in a  position   of  isolation! splendid, -indeed, but  nonetheless isolation.    At the  . time of the Boer war it was said  that Britajn had no friends but  her colonies.    Since then  there  has been a remarkable change,  and tlie best understandings exist with  France,  Russia,  Italy,  Spain, Portugal and Japan.    In  the case of Japan only does the  understanding amount to a hard  a^id fast alliance, but the governments of the other countries are  disposed to act in harmony with  our own,  and between the several peoples an excellent feeling  is   growing   up.     While   these  things do not ensure peace, they  render the chances of war somewhat  more  remote.    To what  extent  the  accomplishment of  thi.s   excellent   thing   is  due to  His Majesty, the principles upon  which our government is carried  on forbid us to know. The King  only acts as meets with the approval of his ministers, even in  the exercise of his great personal  influence,   but we can easily  believe that His Majesty's long  experience in public affairs, his  consummate tact, his ripe judgment  and  his thorough knowledge of men play a very important part in   determining  the  foreign  policy   of   the   nation.  The- face that his  hand never  -appears on tlie surface of things  may not be taken as proof that  it is not at work.   There  have  been  some,   who   fancied  that  they saw in the  great activity  of'the Sovereign a disposition to  exalt the "'kingly-- "office- "at the'  expense of Parliament and the  ministry ;*but we see no ground  for such an idea. It would bean  exceedingly unfortunate .thing  for the British Empire if, having  a man within its borders so well  equipped as the King is for giving good counsel and exercising  a bene'icia.-.influence upon, the  foreign relations of the nation,  the-country should be deprived  of his services, because of some  sentimental reason relating to  the position of .the Grown in the  body politic. It would be an  extraordinary thing if the only  man in tlie Empire, who had no  right to hold and express opinions upon national affairs,  should be the man better qualified than anyone else to have  ,opinions on such subjects that  are worthy of consideration.  But to  whatever extent tlie  influence of the King  has been  exerted 'upon his ministers: at  home   or    upon    governments  abroad, -the'"grout" fact remains  ���������unquestioned   and  unquestionable, tbat durjng the past five  years .the United Kingdom has  been surrounded by friends, and  that yearly tlie strength  of the  friendliness between the people  of the new ''group/ of nations is  becoming     more    pronounced.  One, and perhaps the principal,  effect of this will be that minor  questions .'of*policy will be determined without friction,  and  we all-know  that it is ,out of  these minor questions that serious    misunderstandings   arise.  We are told that a complete  agreement exists between Great  Britain and Russia as to Persia  and   Afghanistan.     The   open  questions  in   regard-   to   those  countries are not very serious,  but they might easily*become  so, if the two great powers interested in them should  approach  them  from different points of  view.   -Apparently all existing  causes of friction  between  the  two European nations in respect  to their Asiatic possessions have  been removed.   It would.be too  much  to hope that they have  been settled for all time to come,  but it is a distinct advantage to  have them disposed of for the  present.   The absence of causes  of trouble in Asia will  allow a  good understanding between the  two countries to develop, and it  undoubtedly    removes     what  must have been a cause of more  or less anxiety both at London  and St. Petersburg.���������Colonist.  es.   The whirligig  of,. t������ne saw i  Dr. J-im premier of C4pe Colony,  and it should now be John Hays  Hammond's turn to obtain some  political distinction  in  reward  for former -internatipnal .notoriety.    So far as  the big salary  argument goes  it is perhaps a  bit open  to question,   for the  highest salaried men are not always the best .men.  For mining  engineers and mine managers it  has often  beon  said   that the  most valuable man to get is*the  man  who has   cost   somebody  else a big pile of money for mistakes which he had made," the  assumption being that he would  not be likely to the same errors  a second  time.   If this  be so,  John Hayes Hammond has been  in mining long enough to have  passed     the     mi stake-making  epoch,   and   yet .we   find   him  Still dropping big  pots for the  ,Guggenheims in the Nippissing  deal in Cobalt and in the Cari-  'boo hydraulic.   ."To err is human and to forgive, divine," but  if John .keeps up that particular  way of showing his  humanity,  both the Guggcn helms'and the  electorate of the United States  may conclude that they haven't  enough divinity in stock to fill  the order.

The main distinction  which he enjoys is thatfbf being  the highest salaried man in the  world, his job from the Guggen-  heims being worth $500,000 per  annum.      Figures    like    these  weigh mightily with  the  electorate of the United States, and  would be pointed  to with pride  by party canvassers as proof incontrovertible of his capability  and general worth.   John Hays  Hammond has certainly   been  prominently  before  the public  for a number of years, and the  occasion  ivpon   which   he   was  particularly in the limelight was  when at the time of the Jamie-  son raid, he was in grave danger  of stretching .hemp along with  Dr. Jim,  Col. Rhodes and some  other celebrities.

It is some time since he was  here before, and many of his Hedley  tillicums gave him the glad hand.  B. D. Boeing went over to Molson  and Rock Creek last week, looking  after some stock and plant that will  be needed in connection with - construction of the new bridge at Keremeos. .  Mrs. McPhail, accompanied by her  little son, left on Wednesday's stage  to join her husband at Nicola. Their  friends in Hedley regret the departure'  of Mr. and Mrs. McPhail, and wish  them all success in their new home.  Messrs. B. S. Adams and WV C.  Weeks'of the Granite Creek hydraulic  dredge were In town on Thursday last  on their Way to Spokane. They are  well satisfied .with the outlook for  dredging operations there this season.  ', Don't forget the concert to be given  in Fraternity Hall on Tuesday nextj  the 23 inst., by Miss Lowndes and Mrs.  Brown of Keremeos, assisted by local  talent. A good programme is being  prepared, and everyone should make  an effort to'be present.  P. Swarisbn, the Princeton hotel  man, is giving the horse racing portion of the Dominion Pay Celebration  a vigorous boost in his: generous contribution. Mr. Swansori was down  this way a short time ago doing good  missionary work for the days sports.  Mr. H. S. Joyner received word from  Mrs: Joyner; who is visiting, their  daughery Mrs. -Rodgers, in Seattle,  that their grandson, Edwin Rodgers is  suffering from scarlet fever.

The refusal of Mr. Deaiie to explain  why he sold the News in the face of an  approaching election, lost him the,Liberal nomination for Kootenay. He considered that he had no business to parade his private affairs   before   even  n  Grit   caucus.     Rumor  says that six  months ago Deane gave Billy McMor-  ris an option  to ��������� purchase   the paper,  never dreaming that it would be taken  up.    Much lo his surprise the sale went  through for $30,0*00,  the new  owners  owners paying $10,000 cash and assuming the mortgage  for $20,000.   Thus  Dean gets out of the paper business  with his life and a hiss   of   six  years'  time.   All the.word he  has done for  the Grits is forgotten in a minute and  he is handed the   froeen   heart when  his party could at least have shown  their gratitude  by giving him the unanimous   nomination   for  Kootemiy.

Manery, wife and children were in town last week. Mr.  Manery reports the washing away of  a portion of the railway grade down  at Armstrong's, but no delay in the  train service resulted. The bridge had  to stand a heavy onslaught from the.  river and from many floating trees,  but no damage was done. The season  is about three weeks later than nsual,  and while in other years the high water is over by this time, the Similkameen is still dallying with high watermark.  Chief engineer Kennedy drove up  from Keremeos last week to consult  with resident engineer Halei Since  Mr. Kennedy was in Hedley a month  ago he has been in Spokane, and while  there met a number of railway contractors, who have made Spokane  their- headquarters. Mr. Kennedy  noted the fact that at the present time  there is very little railway building in  sight in the United States. The building of the G. T. P. is the biggest enterprise in the line of railway building  that may be expected for a year or  two. Most of the work which has'  kept the contractors busy for the past  three years is completed and therefore  Canada is likely to witness much more  building for the next two years than  the United States.

'  ������-'*  Don't take a stimulant;-just breathe.  This is the advice of a doctor who  does not believe In the old medical  policy of mystery, but who undertakes  philosophically to explain to any patient why such nnd such a remedy  should be beneficial, says the Philadelphia Telegraph.  "When you tire 'let down,'" continued this physician, "don't take a cocktail; just breathe. Put your finger  on your pulse and get its rhythm. During eight beats draw in the" breath,  breathing deep and low and forcing th������  diaphragm down first* then filling the  upper lungs. Then exhale this breath  during four beats of the pulse.  "Now, if you are working with ���������  piece of machinery, say a typewriter,  what, do you do to make it run more  smoothly? You don't put a lot more  , oil on it and gum nnd clog it all up.:  You clean it first. You can best clean  the blood by breathing. The blood  passes through the lungs, and it needs  and expects to find plenty of.fresh air  with oxygen in it. If it can't find perfectly fresh air it needs move "ail* which  is not perfectly fresh. It needs to be  cleaned by contact with the air.  "Once in awhile hold the lungs full  of breath as long as you can without  expulsion. In doing this you are simply cleaning the machine. You are  cleaning the blood. At the, same time  you are giving that little fillip to the  action of the heart and the nervous  system which you thought you were  giving when you took the cocktail. -In  .the latter case you didn't clean the machine. You simply ran it a little faster  and gummed it up a.little more. You  can get the same results, the same  feeling of exhilaration and of accomplishment,' without taking the cocktail, and at the same time the'maehine  will steadily improve in its running  quality. Breathe the best air you can  get and plenty of it. It is as necessary  as food.' The heart and lungs act involuntarily. In'hurried business life  they become too involuntary.

Animals are capable of what we  should call heroism in man. In one  field was a donkey, in another a horse.  Through the first went a mastiff and  made for the ass, seized him by the  throat, pulled him down, and that so  suddenly that the donkey looked likely to be killed. The horse in the next  field leaped the hedge dividing the  two pastures, collared the dog with  his tooth, swung him and like a baseball player caught him on the fall���������  with his heels. The mastiff was whisk*-  ed over the hedge which the horse  had just crossed, and the donkey was  left in pence to recover from his  wounds.  His  Occasional Wish.
