Vernon, B. C.  The United Wireless plant on the  Canadian-Australian liner Makura is  doing splendid service this voyage and  a message was received from the liner  last night when she was 1349 miles  from Cape. Flattery and nearly 1500  miles from Vancouver. The vessel  reported a moderate sea and light  breeze with the temperature 70 degrees. She Avas in latitude 32-50 north  andTongitnde 146-10 west.' She was in  communication with Honolulu as well  as Vancouver and will icach Honolulu  at'noon on Saturday. On her previous  voyage the Makura was in communication with Flattery, 1300 miles away.  This time she will beat*that distance  by a hundred miles for she is expected  to get in touch again to-night.  IMPORTANT MINING DEVICE  Rossland Man Invents New Chuck  Rock Drills  for  C. N. R.'s  FINE  GRADIENTS  LOWER OKA NAGAN  The Sunday School at Fairview is a  marked success.  The Rev. Mr. Cameron returned to  Keremeos on Saturday afternoon.  ' Mr. aiid Mrs. Stone have moved to  Penticton where Mr. Stone has engaged to work on a fruit ranch.  Mrs. Lawrence, nee Gillespie, with a  substantial evidence of matrimonial  bliss is visiting her parents.  George Cawston and his herd of  cattle are westward bound ; he found  his cattle in prime order.  Miss Layton, teacher in the public  school at Myer's Flat spent her Easter  holiday with friends in Vernon.  -Water was turned on the fruit lots  and other ranches at Okanagan Falls  and Vasseaux Lake last week.  The hills and benches between Okanagan Falls and Osoyoos are decorated with a variety of rlow^s for Easter.  Fruit trees at Okanagan Falls, Vasseaux Lake, Fairview and Incamip  give promise of a. good crop for this  year.  The Great Northern engineers are  said to be making a thorough survey  of the Oroville-Penticton branch line.  They are how camped at the bridge on  on the Okanagan near Fairview.  : Dr Robillard, who 'in 1875 at Metcalf  Ontario, amputated part of the Rev.  Mr. Cameron's foot.enjoyeda few days  rest at Okanagan Falls, met his old  patient and returned to Penticton on  Saturday afternoon.  (Rossland Miner.)  H.   W. Schorlemmer, of Rossland,  has invented and recently patented a  rock drill chuck, which,  after having  been given a very thorough trial in  the mines of the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Co., has answered every  test to which it has been put.    It has  also been abundantly demonstrated by  the tests that a saving of more than 25  per cent over the old style chuck has  been effected.     Tho   new chuck  has  some special features, ��������� the efficacy of  which drill operators will readily perceive.    In  addition to being very simple to operate there -ire no chuck bolts  and nuts  to tighten: all   that an operator has to do is to slip in the drill and  turn  on  the air."   The drill tightens  a atomic-ally and never gets loose while  working; as is so frequently the case  with  the old design.      Consequently  the chuck  bushing lasts   about four  times as long as the older design. This  has been clearly proved by actual test.  All one has to do to release the drill is  to give a slight   tap   to  the  wedge,  which is part of the chuck, and  the  drill  is  instantly free.   From   this it  will be seen that the changing of the  dull can be accomplished much  more  rapidly than in the old  way.   Miners  who have used this new chuck for any  length  of time claim  that  they can  drill as much in six or six-and-a-half  hours as they could in eight with the  old-fashioned chuck.   This is another  great saving and  but one moie of the  numerous advantages to  be  derived  from the use of this new machine. For  the past twelve months this chuck has  been used by the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Go. of Canada, and it  has been pronounced by the management and machine men alike, the best  they have ever been called upon to  operate.  And This is the Road  Lightweight Politicians Wanted to Spoil With a Big  Mountain   Climb.  A preliminary survey of a line for  the Canadian Northern railway between Tete Jaiine Cache and Yellow-  head pass at the summit of the Rockies was completed about a month ago.  This was the news sent out by courier  to Kamlqops and thence wired yesterday to Mr. Thomas H. White, chief  engineer, whose headquarters are in  Vancouver.  The survey party, comprising 20  men, is in charge of Mr. 0. F. Han-'  ington, a well known civil engineer,  and has been engaged' 011 the upper  section since last November. Mr.  Han ington in his communication  briefly stated that he had secured  very satisfactory gradients and that-  details would follow on his arrival  arrival here. The raihvay engineers  are now on their way south. When  the courier left them the surveyors  were checking up a portion of last  summer's survey near Cranberry lake  on the divide between Tete Jaime  Cache and the North Thompson river  valley.  The maximum grade betweeu Yel-  lowhead and Kamloops is five-tenths  of one per cent.  The Canadian Northern has now  completed its entire pieliminary survey between Yellowhend pass and  New Westminster, .a distance of 450  miles. On the coast section the final  survey has been well advanced.  WEDDING BELLS  Double Wedding in Princeton  BIDDING ON EQUIPMENT  At Cliff Ranch, Vasseaux Lake, on  Thursday morning, March 24th, Andrew D.  MeKeiizie, after seven long  years of a severe contest with physical  weakness resulting from a cold, folded  his arms and  without any sign of distress crossed  the  Great Divide.    On  Saturday the funeral services at the  ranch and the cemetery we're conducted by the Rev. A.  H.  Cameron, of  Keremeos.     The pall-bearers were J.  R. Brown. W.C. Bate, Andrew Hamilton, George Cawston, John McLennan,  and Top.  Bassett.    The  large gathering at the house and at the grave indicated the high esteem in which Mr.  McKenzie  was held by his neighbors.  From  a distance there were present  Dr.  R. B.  White,  C. A. C.  Steward  and A.H. Wade, Penticton, and many  friends from Fairview. Myers Flat and  White Lake.  When   writing    Advertisers  Mention the Gazette.  Please  This season's prospects are unusually bright for the Lower Okanagan.  The completion of the pipe line to  carry water from Green Mountain to  the Junction ranches and Kaleden,  the reasonable certainty of the construction this summer of the railroad  from Oroville to Penticton, the Ioca  tion of the Webster saw mill at  Thomas' ranch, Okanagan Falls, and  the likely sale of fruit lots at Kaleden  and south as far as Cliff Ranch at the  foot of Vasseaux Lake this year and  in the near future to the International  boundary line, are the foundation on  which the settlers now here rest their  hopes and smile. The description of  this district by L. AV. Shatford, M.-  P. P. in his rousing speech in support  of the Penticton Railway bill is apt  and true. "The entire valley of the  Southern Okanagan is adapted for  fruit-growing and the peaches grown  there will vie with those to be found  anywhere."  The importance of the installation of  new machinery to be added to    the  works of the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  may be learned from the number of  representatives   of   machinery  firms  that visited Hedley last week to put  in a bid for the orders.   The   installation is in some respects so  complex,  and so much dependent   iipon   local  circumstances that  in   order   to   bid  closely on the Avork it was desirable  to have a representative on the ground  to see just what was required without  any possibility of misunderstanding.  The new  equipment which  they are  figuring on is to consist of a 275 killo  wa t generator direct -connected  with  a cross compound   condensing steam  engine which may also be driven by a.  water wheel of sufficient power and  equipped with oil governor; also three  150 horse power boilers and fixtures  connected therewith.   The representatives here are Messrs Robt. Hamilton,  representing the Robt. Hamilton M'f'g  and the Goldie & McCulloch Co.; H. C.  Beebee, the Canada Westinghouse Co.  J. A Shand, the Allis,  Chalmers Bullock Co.; Chas. Sangster, the Canadian  Fairbanks Co.:   H.  W.  Beecher,  the  Babcock & Wilson Co. and   the Chas.  D. E. Moore Co.; Geo. R. Wright, the  Canadian  General   Electric  Co.,   and  the Canada   Foundry    Co.; Geo.  A.  Ohren, the Canadian Rand Co. and the  Jencks Machine Co.  The new. compressor in the powerhouse of the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  has had its baptism by both steam and  water. After various spells of working by steam, both light and underload, the steam fixtures wen? disconnected and the water power turned on.  This was found to go off as sruoothly  also as steam and for several days it  has been working pretty steadily by  water, although the water supply  since the dip in temperature has been  a trifle short. After working for long  spells under load (and there is now a  heavy drain on the air supply, with all  the mine pumps going steadily and  the mine drills as well as diamond-  drilling) but all the bearings have been  running cool, and absolute rigidity  seems to have been attained. It is the  intention, we believe to have a day or  two steady run by steam to give it a  good -trial and know- that all is right  before starting in for the season's run  on water, and by that time the water  should be coming stronger.  The event of the season in the niatri-  menial line was that which occurred ���������'  in Princeton on Thursday evening,  March 2lth,at the Presbyterian manse  when Rov. J. Thurburn-Conn performed a double wedding service,  uniting in marriage four of Princeton's most popular young people.  The contracting parties were Mr. H.  H. Avery, jr. whose chosen one was  Miss Eliza J. Carson, formerly of  Pavillion, B. C, but during the past  year the talented popular teacher of  the public school in Princeton; and  Mr. A. H. Davidson, of Princeton,  formerly of, Vancouver, whose affianced was Miss Olive Martin.  The wedding was a quiet one and  the affair kept remarkably close so  that none appeared to have known  what was in the wind and but few  suspected, which made the event all  the greater surprise. Each couple acted as bridesmaid and groomsman for  the other, all having been the most intimate friends.  Mr. Avery, jx*., has been  a resident  of Princeton  for about  three years,  having gone there from Nelson where  he  was in the  employ of Thorp & Co.  And was for a year- or so the secretary  of   the   Industrial   Workers   of   the  World.     Since  coining  to   Princeton  he has taken an active part in all matters of public interest which has made  him popular in the town, and a praiseworthy move on his part was the present one in retaining for the town as a  permanent resident the popular young  lady whom  he has made Mrs. Avery.  Mr. Davidson,  although not so long a  resident of the town, has many friends  and is one of the solid young   men of  the  place  and   his   bride   a   popular  young lady.  The wedding party leave on Friday  for a wedding trip which will take in  Spokane,. Seattle and other points.  The Gazette extends congratulations  with best wishes for happiness and  and prosperity.

Hincks^ '"Maniager  *KWJK&.&J*&^^*M*^  X  X  XiX  x\x  ���������Si8?  X  THOS. BRADSHAW, Proprietor  5 i ������C  2L "      :;���������*    ' - w ' *\x  X  ff-  is RECOPROCITY COMING?  ��������� There is a growing impression both  in 'Washington and Ottawa that the  present negotiation!* between Canada  and the United .States on the tariff  .question may result in a reciprocity  \ treaty between .the.: two, countries not  unlike that abrogated by the United  States in a. spirit of pique, in 1S61. If  this should be the solution of"the difficulty precipitated by the Payne-Aid-  rich tariff law it will be but another  instance to demonstrate, the far-seeing  statesmanship of Sir John Macdonald  in adopting protection as a principle  in Canada's  financial  creed  when his  National Policy was  made a plank in  "  - ��������� ���������  i  the Conservative platform in 1878.    It  was a  bold step to take at that time  when   all. Britain   together   with   the  colonies  was saturated, with Cobden-  isin, and   to deny either  the  truth.or  the expediency of that doctrine to its  smallest detail was  almost   equal  in  heinous 11 ess to the sin of denying divine inspiration of.the scriptures in the  eyes of a prosbvterian  kirk elder. . To  break it to  them as gently as possible  Sir  John   had   to tell   them   that  the  National   Policy was  only a. means'to  an  end   and  the end   he. had  in view  was the   restoration of the reciprocity  treaty   which   had been   abrogated  in  lSC1-t   because   the United   States  was  sore  over-  the  Alabama   matter   and  about other  little things that nations  as well as people are apt to be touchy  over in   wartime.    Under that policy  introduced by Sir John in 1878 Canada  has been   built up,   and now  it begins  lo   look   as   if   it  is  going to prove in  verity, as Sir John told them it would,  the means towards restoration of reciprocity   under mutually advantageous  terms.    What  a pity Britain hasn't a  man   like Sir  John to   be their Moses  and lead them out of theirjug-handled  free trade   bondage.!    If  Cobdcn were  alive   to-day   he. would  be the   one to  recognize   altered  conditions for them  and   would be   that man,   or if Joseph  Chamberlain   were only  fifteen  years  younger  the   boon   would   be accomplished.  if. two men are. having'a mix-up and  they are parted, how are we. to determine which had the best of it ? Surely we ought to be more disposed  to accord the palm to, the one that h'iid  his opponent's head in chancery to the  tune of a "three-quarter Nelson" than  to said opponent. Now what was the  relative position of the belligerents  when peace was declared by the  Treaty of. Ghent:'. There wasn't a  single foot of Canadian soil in the  possession of the enemy nor a single.  United States,soldier on Canadian soil  except as a prisoner of 'war. On the  other band two forts in New York  State weie in possession of the British.  Sir John Sherbrpoke of Nova Scotia.  had invaded Maim; and subdued that  state from the Penobscot River to  New. Brunswick and the British held  it to the close..of. the war. In-Michigan* also the British held half the  the. state. Yet Elbert Hubbard seemed to be in blissful ignorance of these  facts and had the whole case summed  up in the affair at New Orleans, a  piece of desultory fighting which took  place.on the loth, of January, 1815 or  two weeks after the treaty, of Ghent  ending the war had tieen signed on  the 24th of December 1814.  ��������� .JUST PUBLISHED'  Wcltbu'-e SEW INTERNATIONAL Dictionary,  lG. ..&. ���������..

Deceased worked in Hedley last "ye.*ir  on the flume, and left for his home in  Michigan about the end of the year.'  Mrs. L. M. Hale, returned last week  from the coast and has gone on to  Princeton where they have taken up  their abode during the building of the  section of the V. V. & E. between  . Princeton and Otter Fiat. During her  stay on the coast at the home of her  parents her brother died.  Messrs Brass & Boeing, after putting  up their work-shop, have been building a slaughter house for King & Co.  over in the vicinity of the railway  bridge crossing tlie Similkameen.  They have also the contract of building a residence for the Hedley Gold  Mining . Co.;. to accommodate Mr.  Wheeler,mill superintendent.  '������������������ Mr. O. L. Knight, of Rossland,. representing the diamond-drill contracting firm of^0.*'Li>.-Knightv'.& Go.;- arrived in,Hedley last week with a crew  of. four men to ��������� begin a contract, of  drilling for the Hedley Gold Mining  Co. ' They started work on Monday,  and with the big new air compressor  to supply them with air, will be able  to make godd progress.  Mr. H-. A. Hincks has. come, back to  Hedley an enthusiastibgolfer, and as  he now plays a good stiff game, the  competition in trying to down him  will add zest to local play. There are  two good golf,clubs in Victoria and  many old players from whom good  pointers could be--learned, and Mr.  Hincks has benefitted considerably  thereby., ,    .-  Mr. E. F. Voigt is reported to be  working on a big mining deal for Copper Mountain' which is expected to  materialize 'within the next thirty;  days, i Part of the'scheme is to be a  smelter.' Tlie Rossktnd Miner says  that if the deal goes .through it "will  rank closely to that of the Nickel  Plate in. point of importance and will  be of great benefit to the district."  ���������choruses,^ songs , and recitations was  -presented, the''childreh bearing their  sliare in ,'a ve'iy creditable manner.  Rev. G. R. B. Kinney occupied the  chair. There was a good turnout  and a satisfactory collection was re  ceived.  THE HEDLEY CITY TC  F. H. French, Secretary and Manager,  HEDLEY,  W. G. Murray and his friend,   Mr.  jSTevin of Nicola, are in town this week  selling some likely looking real estate  situated on the shores of  Burrard  Inlet to the east of Hastings  townsite.  It is almost five years since Mr.  Mur  ray clerked in the stoic  of Shat fords  Limited, or as it was then known,   W.  T. Shatford &, Co., and he sees  consid"  er-able change in Hedley in that time.  Chas. Townsend,   who  has  been  at-  Spokane for some time  with his son,  who was undergoing special   medical  treatment, returned   to    Hedley   last  week and went to work at the Nickel  Plate.    His    boy,  Harold,  is making  satisfactory recovery from an  attack  of what has been pronounced  in  Spokane, a case of Bright's disease.    Mrs.  Townsend remained in  Spokane  with  her son.  G. B. Lyon has recently burned a  kiln of lime at the company's kiln and  is delivering it in tho linielioti.se at the  works. A great deal is used for neutralization purposes in the cyanide department, and anyone who wants to  build can procure, lime for plastering  or for putting up chimneys, ,-i. tiling  that everyone should have, now that  brick and lime or cement can he procured at a more reasonable rate than  in former years.  The white' cabin at the east end of  the.foot/bridge came in for a little  scinching on Saturijl-iy last. The lire  occurred at the noon" hour, and for-,  tunately was noticed by J. Mairhoffer  and S. L. Smith, who hustled down  as quickly as they.could. and got out  some clothing and other belongings  which C. Townsend had stored in the  building, arccVafter these were got out  their attention was directed towards  saving the .building when luckily  they managed to get the fiie out although the roof was partly burned.  Last wee.k some Hindus came in to  work on the section from Hedley  south, the Great Northern having sent  th'em'in" to.-do surfacing under fore,  man Hayes. Some of them-are strapping looking fellows, with a reasonably fair, command of the English  language,' and should b'eable' to do a  good day's work if they have been  shown the way.- It riiust be remembered that although  our.color',- 'they  like piuselves and as such should be  treated as fellow subjects of the same  King, and many of their kin have  fought as valiantly for the flag as-  other Britons have done.  A "complimentary dance was given  last. Wednesday, night, in Fraternity  hall as a farewell.to. JVIr. L. G. MacHaffie, late manager of the Bank of  B. N. A. who has been moved by the  bank to take a more important position. ,, There, was a large turnout as an  evidence of Mr MacHaffie's popularity  a marked feature in this regard being  tlje* presence of so'meiAvho do not usually take in diversion of this kind biifc  put in an appearance to show.their regard and good will. A tidy supper-  was given at the Great Northern  hotel, at which Mr. MacHaffie was  presented with a handsome, shaving  set, the honors being done by Dr.'Mc-  Ewen, who was chair-man of the supper and the presentation was made by  II. D. Barnes', Mr. MacHaffie making  a suitable reply. Mr. MacHaffie  leaves Hedley* bearing the good will  find esteem* of the people generally,  and while they regret to lose him as  a citizen they are pleased that promotion in the'service of the Bank has  come his way.

VALLEY  Frank Dollemore  Proprietor  THE   GAZETTE! THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,  MARCH 81, 1910.  KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen���������Famed for Fruit Growing  Town and Lower Valley.  R.H. Carniichael, of Princeton spent  Easter in Keremeos.  Miss Kirby left on Monday fof a few  day's visit with friends in Hedley.  Messrs. Bower and Grant of the E.  T. Bank staff paid the upper valley a  visit between trains on Monday.  We are sorry to report tha t Mrs. F  Sauve is seriously ill of pneumonia. Dr.  McEwen was called in on Monday.  The meeting of the Board of Trade,  arranged for Saturday last was postponed until Saturday. April 2nd, at  7.30 p.m. A good attendance is requested.  J. R. Shaw had an encounter with  an enraged bovine on Saturday even-  in gin which the horse he was riding  was badly gored but he himself escaped unhurt. The animal was in a frantic mood from having been branded;  Mr Brooke, of Coleman, Alia., who  , recently arrived in Kereuieos and purchased a three acre lot from the Land  Company, was joined on Friday by  his wife and child.- Mr. Brooke is having his lot plowed ready for planting  this spring and also intends erecting a  comfortable residence.  C. ,T. Bunbury, of Greenwood, has  been spending a few days in this district, where several .matters engaged  his attention. Among other results of  the Chief's .visit the "Almond Eyes"  have, taken their departure from' the  east end and the red lights "there have  extinguished for good.  D. J. Innis and a gang of men have  been busy putting the new bridge in  shape to resist high water. The piers,  which during the high water a year  ago showed signs of weakening, have  been reinforced with stone. Without  this work it is doubtful if the bridge  could have withstood the freshets  which will soon be due.  The petition recently circulated,  asking to have the word "Station"  struck from the post office name of  our town has borne fruit. Last week  our post master received official notice that the request had been granted  and anew stamp to be used on and  after April 1st, has been supplied to  the office with the single word "Keremeos" thereon. The post office in the  upper town will continue to be known  as Keremeos Centre, thus making all  distinction necessary.  J. H. Kennedy returned on Saturday from a short, trip up the valley.  He reports construction work on the  west.end, between Abbotsford and  Hope, as having been impeded so far  by one cause and another, but expects  things to be humming in the near  future. On his way out he spent a day  at Oroville and visited the camp of  Engineer Russell who is engaged in  surveying the line between Oroville  and Penticton.  Joe Armstrong arrived in,Keremeos  on Saturday to take up his permanent  residence. His house hold effects and  the material for his new house, which  will be of the ready-made variety  similar to Mr. Goo. Clarke's, have been  shipped and are now on the was from  Vancouver. Mrs. Armstrong will join  her husband here in a couple of weeks'  time. Mr. Armstrong will continue  to supervise the Company's irrigation  system. Oh Monday he inspected the'  ditch from one end to the other arid  found everything in very satisfactory  condition.  The members of the Keremeos Sunday School and friends enjoyed a picnic frolic on the mountains on Good  Friday. The forenoon was spent in  a rather strenuous climb up the hills  northeast of town and lunch was served at a picturesque and interesting  spot far up the mountain, over-looking  both the Keremeos and Similkameen  valleys. At this particular spot is a  high cliff of basaltic formation, split  up into hexagonal prisms of such  regularity as to be a source of exceed  ing wonder to all who saw it. Perhaps  the Gazette, which is recognized as  being well informed on all things pertaining to mineralogv, would give its  Keremeos readers a little further information in regard to the nature,  origin and formation of these interesting rocks which are said to be very  similar to those of the celebrated  'rGiants' Causeway'' in Ireland.  (Received too late for last issue.)  The   Rev.   Mr.   Cameron   went  Princeton on Tuesday.  to  George Cawston, of Hedley, was in  town on Tuesday.  Mrs. Sinclair, of Chopaka, is the  guest of Mrs. M. McAuley.  The record for the Union S. School  last Sunday was 45 in attendance.  Mr. ��������� Waterman, of Princeton, was  on the  west bound  train on Tuesday.  Georges Milburn made the round  trip to Hedley and return on Saturday.  There  will be special music for the  Presbyterian  and   Episcopal services  j here on Sunday.  j     Dr.  A.   K.   Connolly,   Mrs.  G.   B.  j Clarke's- brother,   will  be  here about  the middle of April.  Mr. Brooks, of Coleman, Alberta,  bought the lot west of Milburn's from  the Keremeos .Land Co.'

On Monday, .March 29th, the K. K.  Klub will entertain the public in the  Town Hall. " Tke Methodist Ladies'  Aid will receive the collection.'  Judging by the number of scholars  on the roll and the average attendance the trustees will soon be called  on to engage a second teacher for the  public school.  .'* On Friday W.T. Atherton was in  Keremeos- with Mr. Wine. His son  Harry is home again and has taken a  contract to cleat the meadow at Ath-  erton's Corner.  Mrs. W. J. Forbes was the guest of  her sister, Mrs. D. J". Innis, over Monday night. She went to Green Mountain on Tuesday and will return to  Keremeos on Saturday.  When there will be another fire  there will be more talk of organizing  a fire brigade. Why not organize  now?, There is no bell or suitable way  for calling citizens out to   fight a fire.  The whereabouts of Mr. Joe Armstrong cannot be located, but he  should be here not later than this  week. He will have charge of the  work here for the Keremeos Land Co.  The citizens had astrenuousfight to  save Innis' stable. If.the fire had taken  the stable it would certainly.: have  made a /clean eweep o������at least all the  buildings on the north side of seventh  avenue. .������������������������������������'.  Wm.

There was a hot -time in our town  Sunday night. About one o'clock in  the 'morn ing there was an alarm of  Fire and in half 'an hour there was  nothing left of the Alkazar hotel except a slot machine and a cask of  'liquor.1 The origin of the fire is not  known. It is reported that the hotel  was insured for $3000. The hotel business in Keremeos will hardly warrant  Bennet and Ford in re-building.  GEO. KIRBY  Notary Public.

THE BEAR CREEK SUICIDE  Nels Iohnson a Swede Miner Chooses  Dynamite Route���������Verdict of  Coroner's Jury  (Sirnilkainceii Star)  A very sad and deliberate case of sui-  cide causing a shudder of horror to  run through the conmiunitv, was committed last week when Nels Johnson  destroyed his own life. He had been  in town about a week after working  the winter at Bear Creek mines. Returning to the work at the mine with  Thos. Parks, he carried out his pre-  mediated act by placing a stick of  dynamite under his head in a lying  posture, lighting the fuse with a  candle, thus blowing off his head. A  note in his diary disposing of his property to relatives and' announcing his  coining death showed clearly his intention to end his life. Dr. La/.ier, coroner  held an inquest, the verdict of the  jury being suicide, superinduced by  alcoholism. Deceased was well known  and had many friends. Everv respect  was shown'the' deceased, a large number attending the funeral. A brother  from Washington was present at the  graveside.

Sharpe of Lisgar has  brought out by a question in parliament an extraordinary piece of wastefulness at the Central Experimental  Farm. There are 323 fowls there,  kept on a three acre plot of land.  Five men are employed to attend to  these three hundred fowl, their salaries being $1500, $1300, $500, $605.31  and $515.70; or $1421 altogether*. The  revenue received in 1908-9 was $620.91,  and for the first ten months of the  present fiscal year $350.87. Thus the  government pays in salaries alone for  these fowl $13.08 per hen per year.  "Paid in Full" is one of the most  picturesque and realistic depictions of  the inner workings of conscience ever  put on the stage and at the same time  one of the most exciting and intense  dramas ever written. It will be given  a splendid production at Fraser's Hall  on Friday night by the Eckhardt  Theatrical Co.

Lonsdale, recently returned  from South Africa where he has been  working in mineson the Rand, is again  in the employ of the Daly Reduction  Co. and doing machinist work around  the power house. He was formerly  up at the Nickel Plate but left during  R. B. Lamb's incumbency. His observations on the deep mines of the Rand  are most interesting. There it is not  unusual for mining companies to begin operations by the sinking of a  shaft to a depth of over 2000 feet  knowing before they begin that this  depth must be obtained before a pound  of ore can be extracted. To finance a  property of that kind there must be  no lack of cash and abundant confidence. But of course it makes a very  great difference when we are told thac  almost all the actual work of mining  and mucking is done by native labor  ���������Kaffir boys who get 35c per day an d  board, and the companies can feed  their men for six for seven cents per  day each. Many of the mines are  splendidly equipped with machinery,  English, German, United States and  Canadian manufacturers being represented.  E, M; CROOKER  Keremeos, Bi. C.
