Many eif our readers in the Similkameen  valley will ask where the West  Fork is? and to them the geographical  names, Westbridge, Beaverdell, Wallace Mountain, Carnii  and  Wilkinson  creak,  may sound  as strange and as  far away as if they were in Syria, and  yet they are nearer to us than Coutlee,  Merritt, Douglas Lake.'Spence's Bridge  and 'Roche river,  with which we are.  more or less familiar; and furthermore  they are in our own riding of Similkameen which thtrotherslas'tenumerated  are not.    It is therefore desirable that  we in the Similkameen should be conversant with what is going on in every  part of our own, riding.   What have  they "there?   some may ask.     Well,  they  have ore up there, that for the  last six or seven years off and on they  have been hauling over fifty miles to  the railway, and not only in test shipments but to treat commercially, and  have made money out of it in spite of  the enormous cost in  getting it out  under such unfavorable circumstances.  Tfot only should all parts of the Similkameen riding know of the West Fork  points enumerated, but by and by we  may introduce them to Peanut Point,  Boomevrang, Cranberry and other less  noted West Fork nomenclature reminiscent of the old days of the higlrwater  t-vail. The Greenwood Ledge, in speaking of the present movement to������settle  the country, says: -  "Along the Kettle river, about sixty  miles from Greenwood, in the vicinity  of the town of Carmi, there are vast  tracts of mining, timber and agricultural land which has commenced to  attract the eye of settlers. Rev. Jean  Ferroux, who resides not far from  Stettler in Alberta, has- in the past  three years brought many people from  Savoy in France and settled them in  different sections of Alberta. ' Some of  them becoming dissatisfied, he cast  about for a more desirable location for  them, and in preference to all locations  he chose the territory adjacent to the  town of Carnii, on the West Fork of  the Kettle river, and it is his intention  to colonize the district between Carmi  and Midway with 300 families. Last  fall he bought from the C.P. R. 2,085  acres near Carmi and is negotiating  for-three or four thousand more acres  in the'same locality. Father Ferroux  is now making his headquarters _at  Carnii. His nephews and several"others are with him and they are getting  ready to plant oats, barley and wheat  in order to have feed for their stock  next winter. They have already  bn>iight in horses, cows, hogs and  poultry, and have at Midway several  tons of wheat, potatoes and farming  machinery which is being freighted in  as fast as possible. Jas. C Dale has  donated to the colony several lots in  Carmi to be used as grounds for a  church, parsonage and hospital. A. E.  Voyer, a real estate man of Edmonton,  will come to the Boundary in June  and open up an office, probably in  Midway, for the purpose of handling  the properties for Father Ferroux and  placing the settlers as they arrive from  Alberta or France. The colony will  also build a sawmill and commence  next winter to "cut ties, poles and  lumber.  "From Westbridge. to sixteen miles  beyond Carmi there are about 40,000  acres of land suitable for fruit raising  and  mixed farming,   which  Ferroux  considers the richest valley for that  purpose in southern British Columbia.  The altitude is less than 3,000 feet and  the prevailing soil is volcanic ash and  black sandy loam.   The country under  discussion is about sixty miles from  Greenwood   and, -about   thirty  jfrom  Pentictem.   The warmest valley in the  vicinity of Carmi is that along Wilkinson  creek.   It is about nine miles  long  by  three-quarters of a mile wide  and ires east to  west,  permitting the  warm air from the Okanagan to blow  through it.    Quite a number of ranchers are already planting fruit trees in  the different valleys tributary to Carmi and the Kettle river.    Last year V.  Dynes, who with his family owns a  thousand acres,   planted   many fruit  trees, and this year Jas. C. Dale, Oliver  La Parte,  Ed.  Smith,  Herb Holmes,  John Younghusband and others have  set out many more.    Grapes, raspber-  COUNTY  COURT.  The semi-annual sitting of the County Court of Yale which,is held 'at  Hedley, took plage on Wednesday, Gth  instant, before Judge Brown, in Fia-  tcrnity Hall.  Usually at these local sessions the  docket is light, and an hour e>r so is all  that is necessaiy tei run through what  is required, but this time the hearing  took the greater������part of two days.  The. case" which consumed all this  time was.that of Sirois vs. Plc'asance,  and embraced the business transactions  involved in the hauling of some 125  cords of wood or thereabout, at intervals over a period of two years.  Plaintiff  had begun hauling wooel  for   defendant   without -means   and  without equipment and had been helped along by defendant, who at various  times was confronted with the problem  of how to get  work enough done- to  even up for monies advanced.   Plaintiff was wholly illiterate,  but had an  active convenient memory and was a  ready testifier,  which is-on the whole  a favorable equipment with which to  go into the witness-box.   The defendant on the other hand cenuplained that  he had not been served in time to give  him an opportunity to prepare his defence.    ,His counsel,   Mr. W.  H. T.  Gahan,  of Penticton,  was  only   employed a few days before and only arrived on  the ground the evening'pre-  vious, and prior to that time had not  seen defendant's books nor any of his  statements of account, and the time  left him before the case came on for  hearing was altogether inadequate to  go properly into the matter, or obtain  the witnesses necessary.  The total sum for which suit was  brought by plaintiff was .$872, and he  obtained judgment for $162 with costs.  EVOLUTION.  MASONIC    FUNCTION.  I By Lanuoon Smith, "War Correspondent, -  Died April 13th, 1908.]  The recent lamented death of this  gifted author makes the publication of  this gem of poetry opportune, and the  Gazette would suggest to lovers of the  beautiful in literature to cut itout and  fyle it away. There is a Kiplingesque  swing in the verses, a boldness of conception in the theme and a wealth of  metaphor strewn along the path of  the_story as it advances through the  eons while "the world burned on in  bhe labhe of time" that will make the  gem live.  Official Visit of F. H. Barnes, D. D. G.  M., to Hedley Lodge.  IN   SIEGE    TIMES.  How It Feels To Be Beleaguered and the  Gaunt Wolf About To Make  the Last Assault.  When yon were a Tail pole and I was a Fish,  In the Paleozoic time,  Anel side by side on the ebbing tide  We spra'w]eel.thi-ough the ooze and slime,  Or skittered with many a caudal flip  Through the depths of the Cambrian fen,  My heart was rife with the joy of life,  For I lovcel you, even then.  Mindless wc lived anel mindless wo lovcel  Anel mindless at last wc died;  Anel deep in tho rift of the Caradoc drift  We slunib'creel side by side.  Tho AVorlel turned on in the lathe of time, .  The hot lands hcaveel amain, [death  Till we caught our breath from the womb of  Anel crept into light again.  Wc were Amphibians, scaled and tailed,  Anel drab as a elead man's hand;  Wc coiled at case 'neath the dripping trees,  Or trailed through the mud and sand,  Croaking and blind, with our threo-clawcel feet  c Writing a language dumb,  With never a spark in the empty dark  To hint at a life to come.  Vet happy-wc lived, anel happy we lovcel  Anel happy we elicel once more;  Our forms' were rolled in the clinging mold  Of a Noocomian shore.  The eons came, and the cons fled,        ,  And the sleep that-wrapped us fast  Was riven away in a newer eluy,  And the night of death was past.  Low.ery, in the Ledge, discourses on  Greenwood's condition before the B.C.  Copper Co. resumed.   The Ledge says:  "It is about six months since the B.  C. Copper Co. closed its mines, and the  shut-down has been a severe blow to  Greenwood. The people-were as cheerful as possible under the circumstances  and only one saloon" stopped taking  water. Nobody starved to death,^ but  green turtle soup did not prevail to  any extent, and most of the champagne in town had a chance to grow  old. During all the strain only one or  two business men had to turn the box  over. This speaks well for the credit  and financial ability of the business  men. A few of the gamiest- even kept  their ads in the local papers until the  finish. It was "Night or Blucher" with  the town and Blucher got here just in  time. Another sixty days of idleness  and tlie walking would bo crowded;  It is now safe to say that Greenwood  has entered upon a long era of prosperity."  MOTHER LODE RESUMES.  Mr. Q. J. Wilson, of P. Burns <fc Co.,  brpught the good news from Greenwood that the B. C. Copper had resumed operations. It will take the  miners a week or two to get ore enough ahead before the smelter is blown  in. When both mines and smelter are  in operation about 700 men will be  employed.  ries, strawberries and other fruits  grow wild in profusion. The climate  is one of the healthiest in the province  and water is in abundance.  "There is plenty of timber in the  country suitable for lumber, ties, poles  and pulp wood, which will bring much  wealth to the district when it is marketed. The clearing away of the forests will also improve the agricultural  resources.  "In addition to its other resources,  the district is rich in gold, silver, lead  and copper, there being nine different  mineral camps within its boundaries.  Wallace mountain especially is a network of "mineral veins. For_ eight  years ore has been hauled to the railway fifty miles away, proving that it  is very rich to stand such expensive  transportation."  Then light and swift through the jungle trees  Wc swung in our airy flights.  Or breathed in the balms of the fronded palms,  In the hush of the moonless nights.  And oh !  What beautiful years were these,  When our hearts clung each to each ;  When life was filled, and our senses thrilled  In the first faint dawn of speech.  Thus life by life, and love by love, .  We passed through the cycles strange;  And breath by breath, and death by death,  We followed the chain of change,  Till there came a time in the law of life  When over the nursing sod  The shadows broke, and the soul awoke  la a strange, dim gleam of God.  I was theweel like an Auroch bull,  Anil tusked like the great Cave Bear;  And you, my sweet, from head to feet.  Were gowned in your glorious hair.  Deep in the gloom of a flrclcss cave,  When the night fell o'er the ;plain,  And the moon hung red o'er the river bed,   .  We mumbled the bones of the slain.  I flaked a flint to a cutting edge,  And shaped it with brutish craft;  I broke a shank from the woodland dank,  And fitted it, head and haft.  Then I hiel me close to the reedy tarn,  Where the Mammoth came to elrink; '  Through brawn and bone I drave the stone,  -And slew him upon the brink.  Loud I howled through the moonlit wastes,  Loud answercel'our kith and kin ;  From west and cast to the crimson feast  The clan came trooping in.  O'er joint and gristle and padded hoof  Wc fought and clawed and tore.  And chcok by jowl, with many a growl,  AVc talked the marvel o'er.  I carved that fight on a reindeer bone,  With rude anel hairy hand;  I pieturod his fall on the cavern wall  That men might understand.  For wc lived by blood anel the right of might,  Kro human laws were drawn,  'Anel the Age of Sin did not begin  Till our brutal tusks were gone.  And that was a million years ago.  In a time that no man knows:  Vet here tonight in the mellow light  We sit at Deliuoiueo's.  Your eyes arc eleep as the Devon springs,  Your hair is dark as jet;  Your ycaiis are few, your life is new.  Your soul untried, and yet   Our trail is on tho Kimmei-idge clay,  Anel the scarp of the Purbock flags,  Wc have loft our bones in the Bagshot stones,  Anel deep in the Coralinc crags;  Our love is olel, our lives arc old,  Anel death shall come amain ;  Should it come today, what man may say  Wc shall not live again?  God wrought our souls from the Treniadocbeds  And furnished them -wings to fly;  He sowed our spawn in the world's dim dawn,  And I know that it shall not die,  Though-cities have sprung above the graves  Where the crook-bone men made war.  And the ox-wain creaks o'er the buried caves  Where the mummied Man-moths are.  Then as we linger at luncheon here,  O'er many a dainty elish.  Let us drink anew to the time when you  Were a Tadpole���������and I was a Fish!  On Friday night last the brethren of  Hedley Lodge Ne>. 43, A. F. & A. M.,  received a visit from R. W. Bio. F. H.  Barnes, of Enderby, the District Deputy Grand Master of No. 9 Masonic  district under the jurisdiction of the  Grand Lodge of British'Columbia.  There was a good attendance of  members and visiting brethren, and  the representative of the Grand Master  made a thorough examination into the  work and standing of the lodge/which  it is pleasing to state he found in such  .shape as to draw from him commendatory remarks and will doubtless enable  him to report favorably to bis chief.  When the work eif the evening was  oven- and the lodge closed iiudue and  ancient form, tables were spread and  around the festive board all the brethren were gathered for the pleasing  duty of-the fourth degree, with W. .  Bro. J. D. Brass, P. M., as master of  the lodge,-in the chair.  The time-honored toast of "The  King and the Craft" was first proposed  and responded to by R. W. Brei. F. H.  Barnes, D. D. G. M., and W. Bro. A.  Megraw, P. M. That of visiting brethren fell to the lot of Bros. E. O. Dolong,  Penticton, and W. McVicais, G. H.  Sproule and J. D. McLeod, of Hedley.  The junior officers and brethren of  Hedley Lodge, called for responses by  A. Clare, W. J. Forbes, H. D. Barnes,  E. D. Boeing, G. P. Jones, E. A. Hoi- '  brook, R. G. Shier and S. E. Hamilton.  V. V. & E. HIKING ALONG.  Track-laying To Begin About Middle of  June���������Steam Shovel Making Good  Showing Below Brushy  Bottom.  Among contractors who have finished up their work are John Lane & Son  who are storing their outfits at Keremeos until they get word to proceed  up on the Grand Trunk Pacific. Their  work was all across the river.  The steam shoved, which is taking  out the cut between the river crossing  and the lower end "of Brushy Bottom,  is making good headway and will  easily finish up there before the end  of the month.   '     .  Track -laying fromcKeiemeos to Hedley is 'now fully expected to begin  about June loth, as by that time the  river will be low enough to begin  bridge-building. There will only be a  few miles of track-laying until the  first crossing is reached, and hence the  necessity of delaying commencement  of track-laying until the worst of the  high water is over. All other grading  work is progressing satisfactorily.  FATALITY NEAR KEREMEOS.  Fred Jackson, An Employe of J no. Lane,  Killed by Falling Off Loaded  Wagon.  Fred Jackson, foreman of one of  Lane's construction gangs on the V.V.  ������fc E. was killed on Thursday, 7th inst.,  by falling under the wheels of a wagon  loaded with steel rails. The team was  being driven bv JE. Anderson who lifted him on the load and took him to  Keremeos. Deceased was about fifty  years of age and unmarried. He had  been a member of Greenwood Miners'  Union, but little was known concerning him. Coroner McEwen did not  consider an inquest necessary.  Mrs, Bassett, one of the oldest settlers in Okanagan Falls died on the 3rd  inst. The funeral which was hold on  Wednesday of last week was very  largely attended.  Duncan Woods, of Summerland, returned on Monday from the east  where he has spent the winter. During his absence he visited friends in  New York state and in Ontario, and  spent considerable time, in Ottawa,  where he had sonie,bnsiness with the  Government. Mr. Woods had not  been east for some 25 years, and naturally saw many changes. He was  glad to get started on his way back,  as he was more, than ever convinced  that the west is the place for him.  Mr. Wbods,is ofie of the pioneers of  the Okanagan, and had large holdings  at what is now the town of Summer-  land, where he still retains considerable interests. He is also largely interested in mineral claims near Hedley, and will  devote his attention  in  the   future   to   their   development.���������  Vernon News. m  2  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   MAY 14, 1008.  j+M  M  ar.d  S'li'Hkarneeri Advertiser.

The people of tlie terminal, city tire certainly an ambitious people, and their desire  to hsive their city, become both,  a judicial and educational centre by the establishment there  of the higher courts and ihsti-  .tutious.. of learning, is praiseworthy; but there is a possibility that if this striving for higher things be to tlio- neglect of  the commoner things with  which they have' already been  supplied, they may render  ..--themselves quite as ridiculous  in the eyes of outsiders as they  'now appear ambitious. Indeed,  an instance of this kind was  seen a few days ago in. tlie prosecution of fou-r fortune-tellers  and palmists in the Vancouver  police court, for practising  their calling, a part of which  consisted in the pretence of  finding stolen or lost goods  through the medium of so-  called psychic, research, clairvoyance, palmistry, necromancy  or by whatever other name the  tomfoolery'may go.

This,  so far  as we know, is   the first   time  since confederation that provincial elections have been held on  the same day in more than one  province;    and  that   it  should  have., occurred  in   the case  of  Ontario and   Quebec,   the two  most populous'provinces in the  dominion    with    an   aggregate  population of nearly four millions or about two-thirds of the  entire  population   of   Canada,  and that,  too, ��������� in  the   closing  hours of h. federal parliamentary term, becomes a'-'.little..more  than mere coincidence.   Had the  New*B.runs w.ick elections gone  other-wise it-is not at all likely  that Quebec, would  be  polling  on the same day as Ontario, but  something was needed to revive  the drooping spirit of  supporters and that something, it is no  doubt fondly hoped will be obtained   when a special appeal is  made to the electors of; Quebec  to  strengthen  Laurier's  hands  by returning Gouin  the  leader  of'the Liberal.

Ross, giinttval manager of  the Daly Reduction Co. left em "Wednesday of last week on a, business trip  to tlie Coast.  A small break in the flume was responsible for turning the water off for  an-hour ov so on Thursday evening  hist.    Repairs were speedily made.  The Geological Survey work for the  coming season has been laid' out, and  in the allotment Mr. Camsell and his  party have been slated for the Similkameen.  Mr. J. M. "Wright is again editor of  the Princeton Star,, and a decided improvement in the matter sind conduct  of the paper is already in evidence.  The Gazette welcomes him back to the  fold.  Joe Cheniei', cigar and fruit man of  Greenwood went busted last week.  Lowery says that if the smelter shutdown had lasted for sixty days longer,  the walking out of Greenwood would  have been a Irifle crowded.  P. Heldstab was oif work for several  days last week with a sore foot. J. K.  Fi user's ankle sprain proved more serious than it was first thought to be,  and laid him off for more than three  weeks. The two mishaps occurring at  the same time put carpenter work at  the mill temporarily out of joint.  . Judge Brown spent Saturday and  Sunday iii Hedley on his return from  Princeton. He had to hold court in  Fairview on Tuesday, and had he gone  out on Saturday he would have been  delayed in Oroville over Sunday. Unfortunately it rained all day Sunday,  which, made the wait over 'much less  enjoyable than it otherwise would  have been.  R. T. Lowery of the Greenwood  Ledge is telling his readers the 'story  of how he circumvented an interesting, verdant portion of the southern  interior of .the province in going to  and returning from the Vernon Convention. The sketches are being run  under the caption "Seeing the West;"  and they show clever spicy writing.  The first installment finds him taking  leexve of Robson in a- playfully concocted, broken-backed climax, that challenges the .luckiest boiler-plate' and  buck-saw artist to improve on.  I. L. Deardorf, road supervisor, returned from the Okanagan on Monday  where he- went last week, taking in  Penticton and Fairview in his itinerary. He. reports material arriving-for  the new bridge at Keremeos, but it  will probably be over a month lief ore  the river will be low enough to permit Of doing any bridge building. By  tliat time also, Harry Swan the boss  bridge builder of the district will have  completed the erection of the mill em  the Golden Zone and will be  ready  tei  D. McPhail started for Merritt on  Thursday last.  Mrs.-H. S.'Joyner accompanied Mr.  M. K. Rodgers to Seattle, where she  will spend, a, few weeks with' her  daughter, Mrs. Rodgers.  We are supposed to have a daily  mail but the contents of the mail box  on Monday evenings doesn't look like  it. All that comes to hand is a Boundary paper or two, with nary a daily  paper in the bunch, and all this after  two days' accumulation.     ' '  Mr.-W. A. McLean moved his family  and effects "to Hedley last week and  will give niore attention to his ranch  up the river during the coming summer. The many Hedley friends of Mr.  and Mrs. McLean and family are  pleased to welcome them bad".  C. J. Wilson, representative of P.  Biu-ivs" & Co. was in town last week.  It is the intention of P. Burns & Co.  to occupy this field in the near future  with shops in Hedley and possibly  Princeton as well. Report has. it that  negotiations are under way for the..  puichase of local shops, the .big concern preferring to buy out rather than  duplicate shops where present business  would not seem to warrant it.  W. H. T. Gillian, barrister, of Penticton who was in Hedley last week  attending session of the County court,  returned on Friday. This was * Mr.  Ga-han's first visit to the Similkameen,  and he was much.impressed with the  valley, and its institutions. Hedley,  he thought was quite metropolitan  with its waterworks, elective light,  telephone exchange' and the railroad  almost at our doors, and not forgetting the industry which supports, the  full dinner pail'. Mr. Gahan, by strict  and prompt .attention to business is  building up good practice in Penticton  and the. lower Okanagan.  Hugh Cameron of Gamp McKinney  returned from the Coast on Saturday  last and went, to McKinney on Monday. Mr. Cameron spent the Winter  in Victoria-swapping yarns with old-  time friends and mixing occasionally  in social events. He. attended the annual dinner eif the haggis eaters, .at  which there were four pipers and no  fatalities. . He met the member from  Rock Creek at the. launching of the  new Hudson's Bay steamer. At this  eveut all the best people from both  sides of the Gorge were present. Mr.  Cameron has been much improved in  healthby his visit to the "Sad, sad  city by the sea."'���������Ledge.  <>������������������������>���������  There is no Discount on the quality of  Our Goods, but the Discount in F^rice is  money saved for you  Now is the time you require a  ������������������***&  &%  ST  ^t-.-ji-i  "unit--/-*  .-".. and ...  m/iELLsmssBssa  S3SaraER3X3&5!S  Er&-j---^E25K-si3---K*irass2i:*.-3;^-;  And we are going to give them to you at  a Discount of 20 Per Cent*.

Work is resumed this week on the  Twenty mile wagon road. A few men  only are put on for a few elays tei cle-au  out some places where there have' been  small ci'.ve-ins a.nd to get the camp  ready, after which tho work will begin  in earnest and be pushed us rapidly as  possible so as tei effect ;i junction with  tlie Penticton road and the camps cast  of the Nickel Plate with the least possible delay. A special effort on the  part of the representative, Mr. L. W.  Shatford is responsible for having the  work started so much earlier tins year.  Paul Brbdhagen came down on Saturday from the -Golden Zone. He re-  ports very broken weather for the  past fortnight, which lias retarded  work'soiiiewhat in the installation of  the. stamp mill. Nevertheless, they  are sticking as closely to work as the  weather will permit, anel tilings are  coining on. The batteries are set; the  battery posts up, and either parts of  the mill are beginning to shape up.  They are glad to learn that work is  being resumed on the wageni road and  in all probability they will start at  once to cut a trail through to meet the  right of way gang. When the road is  completed, they expect to be able to  walk from the Golden Zone into Hedley in three hours.  Nothing very exciting has happened  at- this end of the lake since I forward-  ed my last- Tit-bits, although I fully  expected at least an earthquake, owing  to the C. P. R."officials; whom I made  mention of last week,- actually staying  in town the whole of one night.  W. E. .Weiby ran a free; stage to  Keremeos on Friday.- Mr. Welby has  met with considerable opposition lately so he thought he would start a cut  rate beginning at zero.  During the week we have had some  very welcome showers which have  brightened up the surrounding orchards considerably and also done an  immense amount of good to the roads  which were getting just a trifle dusty.  Three Indians, named, respectively,  Manuel, Charlie and A'ndrae, were arrestee! on Saturday .by Constable! Tooth  for being drunk on the reset ve. They  were brought before A. H. Wade, J.P.,  who remanded them till Monday, when  they e-aine before W. J. Clement, J. P.  They were each fined $50 or o months  in Kamloops jail.

C  MOXTRKAL TORONTO WINNIPEG- CALGARY THE   HEDLEY    GAZETTE,   MAY   1-1,   1908.  'V  Cnteri-tHars and  Grubs.  It is altogether surprising what caterpillars and grubs c;in survive and appear ������������������to ��������� like .it.    Some  mites   live on  strychnine,    eating   it   with    avidity.  Professor Attfield tried the same fare  on cheoso mites, and up to .50 per cent  of strychnine they lived and thrived as  perhaps only mites can bo expected to  do.    Over 50 per cent of poison they  found   to   be   an   error   of   diet   and  promptly died.   There is a'sort of caterpillar  which  lives  on   magnesia;  one  wonders, vaguely whether a perpetual  course of magnesia is not found somewhat enervating.   But, then, the caterpillar   i9   a   being   wholly   depraved,  which nothing can kill.    The grub of  the fur moth particularly is an indiscriminate feeder, liking wool as readily  as fur and a horse's hide as well aa  cither, and will dine heartily on such  poetic fare as butterflies' wings..   And  it is destruction personified, taking a  wanton pleasure in cutting off a multitude of hairs more than it can possibly  'require, ami nothing seemingly can kill  it.    Turpentine, sea salt, tobacco and  sulphur fumes���������these "remedies" only  drive it away, that is all, as the passengers in Hans Andersen's coach useel  a sprig of myrtlo-to drive away .the  flies.'���������-London Globe.  Is A  Odd  Old La-ws.  In an old set of laws of the Choctaw,  Nation there is a clause which relates  to the.killing of Avitches. For witch--,  craft the penalty was death, and for  alleging- oneself to bo ii witch or. for  saying'that any other person was one  was punishable by sixty lashes on the  bare back.  Another declared that no'doctor could  take money or any of the belongings of  a patient he treated if the patient died.<  If the patient were raised up from a  Bick bed.the doctor could accept;what  was offered to him, and if nothing was  offered, then he could take in goods  what was his just compensation.  In 1S34 the Choctaw council passed  an act which .made a person.who bargained to sell any of the Choctaw land  a traitor and punishable by death. Any-  white man who encourageil such action  was deported. An Indian who soltl or  disposed of land cither to individuals  or to the United States in toto should,  be considered a traitor and shot on conviction. This was just preceding the  beginning of tho work of the Dawes  commission.,  And  Will  Make  Money  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the  richest gold mine  in Canada���������and many other  "promising mines and prospects.    It is the mining and business  centre of the  the noAV mining district which has already been proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway ; and with the advent of this road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...

W. SHATFORD,  Secretary and Manager,  HEDLEY, B.C.  Animal and Plant  Allies.  An interesting instance of the manner in which insects sometimes assist  the growth of plants is furnished by  the history of a climbing plant which  grows in the Philippines. At an early  stage in its career the plant, which,  like other plants, begins to grow from  the ground, severs its connection with  the soil and thenceforward lives with  its roots attached to dead bamboo  canes. It develops, in addition to other  leaves, certain pitcher shaped leaves,  into the cups of which it sends a second set of roots. A species of small  black ant frequents the pitchers and  incidentally carries into them minute  fragments of decaying wood and leaf  mold, from which the roots derive a  constant supply of food for the support of the plant.  BASE-BALLERS GET BUSY.  England'! Milk BUI.  The laborer, it seems, is content with  5 gallons of milk, 9 pounds of cheese  and 15 pounds of butter in the twelvo  months. Artisans and mechanics have  12 gallons of milk, 11 pounds of cheese  and the same quantity of butter. Each  member of the upper class, however,  drinks on an average 31 gallons of milk  in a year, eats lO'/i pounds of cheese  and 41 pounds of butter. A meinber  of the upper class drinks rather more  than six times as much milk as a laborer, eats just a little more cheese  and uses three times as much butter.  Following the meeting held on. 29th  ult. to organize a baseball club, work  in preparing new grounds more convenient to the town has been undertaken. The new grounds are on the  flat west of the Hotel Hedley, where a  very fair diamond has been secured.  To get it in shape a number of large  stumps had to be blown out and the  debris burned off.  In the material on hand to choose  from, while there are no brilliant star  players in sight, yet with faithful  practice a fair team might be secured.  After all it is the exercise and the  sport that is sought, and a team to win  games is not the only consideration.  In the election of officers there is an  obvious over-lapping of- port-folios.  The slate chosen was :  President,   E. A. Holbrook  Secretary,   T. H. Rotherham  Manager,   W. F. Revely  Com. of management, S. E. Hamilton, G.
