V. & E. railway, a bran eh  of the Great Northern railway, about  twenty miles north of the United  States boundary line, on the 20th;  Meridian, on the eastern slope of the  Cascade mountains, on an elevated  plateau about 6000 feet above seu  level.  The  mining property  is owned  by  the Hedley Gold Mining Co., Ltd., and  the reductien' plant  by a   provincial  corporation,   the  Daly lied action Co,,  Ltd.,  n   subsidiary   company   of   the  Hedley company.     The Hedley Gold  Mining company is capitalized at $1,-  '500,000 in $10 shares���������$1,200,000 issued.  Its stock N   listed on  the Boston Exchange.    $300,000 per annum is paid  in dividends,  or 25  per cent,  on  the  issued, stock.     The  balance sheet of  1912 shows cash of $350,000 and a snr-  plus of 200,000.   The net profits in 1911  were $31S.152.21.     All expenditures of  every kind, exploration, development,  diamond drilling and additions to the  plant are charged  to operation.   Mr.  G. P. Jones   is the  resident manager.  His  practical  mining experience was  acquired  with   Lansell,   of   Bendigo. ���������  Australia.    He has grown up with the  property" "from its early7levelopnierit  to the present.  HISTORICAL  The Nickel Plate urine was discovered and located August 7th, 1S9S, by  C. H. Arundell and P. H. Wollaston.  The outcrop of the ore body was covered by vegetation, fallen timber and  surface soil, the latter being colored  red by oxide of iron, which revealed  the location of the ore body orr surface. A half gold pan of this surface  soil would parr a 3-inch streak of gold.  The ore body on surface was about HO  feet wide and averaged abemt 2.0 oz.  of gold per ton.  The Nickel Plate mines were developed fronr prospects and put on a  dividend  paying basis  by M.-Jv. Rod-  (Oroville Gazette)  It is ,twenty years?ago since there  was a general '-cleaning but of, government appointees to, nnike room for- the  adherents of triumphant democracy.  No matter what iiuij' be the protests  of reform prior to theeleetion, one of  which is the retention of capable offi-  cials, the slogan of "to the victors belongs the spoils" is faithfully carried  out. We have reason to remeinber  the upheaval of a score of years ago,  because we had to shake loose from  the public crib, and it was considered  a very painful wrench at the time.  That is one of the drawbacks to office  holding. Just as onoVis getting accustomed to the work, and is enjoying  the perquisites, he is rudely jolted off  the perch. We have been tendered  office several times 'since that experience, but one expeiiment at taking  hold and then letting go again after  having lived up to the salary is too  painful to undergo a repetition.

WHEN AVHITlNfl AOVKUTISICRS  CU'AHK  3IKNTION   THIS RARER  gers,- who has been a mining engineer  with the Anaconda Copper Mining  Co.. of Butte, Montana, for a number  of years, and who for three years'  previous to the discovery of the Nickel  Plate mine had been hunting mines  for Marcus Daly and J. B. Haggin,  and during this time had .examined  several hundred properties and travelled 130,000 miles over the mining districts of the United States, Alaska.  Canada, Mexico, Australia and Tasmania, and this is one of the five mines  out of those examined that he recommended for development. It is a matter of record that these five properties  have prodveed up to the present over  $70,000,000 and they are all today good  dividend paying mines.  In the fall of 1S9S Rodgers was in  Victoria, B. C, on his way to the  northern part of British Columbia,  when he was shown a piece of ore a  [ prospector had just brought in. Mr.  Rodgers liked the looks of the ore and  immediately cancelled his trip north  and started on a 500 mile trip into tlijj  intorior of British Columbia,, to see  this new discovery, and was so well  pleased with tint property that although there was only a 3 foot hole in  the way of development work, he  bonded the property for $00,000 and  started work on the 12th day of January, 1S99. living in tents at an altitude  of 0,000 feet. There was not even a  wagon road within 25 miles, and it  was 135 miles to the nearest railway,  and during the first two years of development 100,000 His. of supplies were  jiacked in over the mountains 00 miles  to the mines. Rodgers had personal  charge of the development, and obtained  adjoining   property   until   the  LOSS OF THE ROYAL GEORGE  Whoever named '.the Canadian  Northern steamer Royal George could  not have ,been very superstitious or  else he was not literary. When news  rirstcame of the  wreck  in   the   St.  -    - ������  Lawrence last week of this fine steamer which has since been abandoned by  her owners  the  recollection  of Cow-  per's poem   must have., come to  mind  in thousands of eases. ,s The simplicity  of the dire accident sung of  by Cow-  per which   snuffed  out   the lives   of  Kempenfelt and his 800,   had almost a  repetition  in the  mishap to  this line  stear'ner.     It is strange  indeed after  all the care which  lias been taken by  governments   to   safeguard   shipping  against all possibility of   mishap that  a lantern  in the hands  of a fisherman  <"t*i-?#l}h'ig-aIon^.'-tiie.'la;^A("li:*hbiild'*llUv6>  been  able to produce such  woeful results,   That,   however, is the. only explanation  which can   be given  by the  old  and  trusty pilot  who ran   heron  the   rocks.     The  lantern   was   being  waved  and   he  was   expecting about  that  time  to see a  similarly  waving  light  ou the  opposite shore  and  the  light which he was looking for did not  loorrr  up until  he was  too far in on a  dangerous shore'to recover.    The mishap is likely to  prove a  very serious  matter for shipping  by the  St. Lawrence- route.  Railway corporations like armies  have to give due attention to,'strategy  and tactics in their dealings with each  other. 'Strategy,we' were taught years  ago, is the movement of troops out of  sight of the enemy and tactics the  moving of - troops in sight of the  enemy. Railways plot and scheme in  secret the invasion of certain parts of  the enemy's territory but there comes  a time when movements in the open  must be made and these are generally  enacted in the legislatures.  Before the  session notice  must be  given, of all  applications  for charter  rights  and the  tactical  period conies  iti.   The movements in .sight may not  all disclose the real intent and some of  them may only be feints to badger and  irritate the other fellow and draw his  attention away from some other point.  Last  year at this stage  or a little  biter, charter  rights were sought   to  build up Twenty-mile creek from Hedley to a  point on the K. V.   west of  Suinmerland.     Now they  want to secure the  privilege of building to Copper Mountain.'    How much of it may  Ire real and how 'much of it feint-work  is something  which time  must determine'-  A news despatch'fromOttawa  in the B. C. dailies   has the following:  Ottawa, Out.,Nov. 15.���������The Kettle  valley railway company will apply to  parliament at the approaching session  for."authority to 'lease its  line of railway to  the Canadian Pacific railway  which proposes to construct, the following lines:    From a point on its present authorized  line at or near Summers creek by   the most feasible route  to   the Copper Mountain   and   Voigt  mining camps, situated about 15 miles  southwest of Princeton.  From a point at or near Vernon in  a southerly or southeasterly direction  by way of Kelowna and by the most  feasiblei 'rbiite : to" ai point at or ' near  Penticton, B. C.  From the terminus of the branch  authorized by the statutes fit 1911 in a  northerly and northwesterly direction  by the most feasible route to the Otter  Sumniit about 30 miles south of Mer-  ritt, B. C.  From a point near or at Tulameen,  westerly np the Tulameen river, a distance of about 50 miles in British Columbia.  ANNOUNCEMENT OF  FRUIT PACKING SCHOOLS  NELSON'S AWFUL EXAMPLE  present holdings  of about  1000 acres-  were acquired,  and   when   the mine  was  well developed  he designed and  built the present plant, and to put the  property on a dividend paying basis  expended $707,000.     The property has  since produced about $1,000,000 in gold  bullion.    Soon after the mill was started  and making a profit   of $20,000 to  $25,000 per  month,   Marcus Daly having died the Daly Estate  replaced Mr.  Rodgers  with  another manager.   At  this   time  the No. J, or lower tunnel,  of the  Nickel Plate mine  was started  to cut the ore body, but was not quite  completed.     The   new  manager continued  this   tunnel   through   and  500  feet  past  the ore.  but not having noticed   the ore   body,   condemned  the  work   as   having   been   done   in   the  wrong  place,   tore  up the  track and  abandoned  the  tunnel.     The   tunnel  was  called "Rodgers' Folly"' for several years afterward.  The  Canadian Geological Report on  Hedley Mining District, by Camsell,  dated June.   .1909. says about this tun-  nal:   "This (No.-1 Tunnel)  was   run to  cut  the ore   body���������but the  ore   body  was  not found and   the   tunnel   has  never  been   used for the  purpose intended."    Under the new management  little development work was done and  the large ore reserves  left by Rodgers  began to dwindle, and the Daly owners  in 1910  gave an  option to the present  owners,   the 'Hedley Gold Mining Co.  (composed of about 70 prominent U.S.  Steel  people) and  when they came to  examine the property Rogders showed  them the ore body which was cut several   years  before   by   the   ������������������Rodgers  Folly Tunnel."  and a .sampling across  20 feet of  this ore body along the side  of the tunnel showed gold values from  $20 to $70 per ton. Development work  was started here and the mine opened  Continued on Ruffe-Two  One Woman on the School Board Keeps  That Body a Little Hell  If the Ciiuse of  the suffragettes over  had  any chance of  making any advance in British Columbia that chance  will  pretty  well  vanish with   the experience  of the town of Nelson which  two   years  ago   ventured  the experiment   of   electing   a   woman   to   the  School Board.    Since then the Board  has lived  a cat and dog sort of existence   arid   both   the   Board   aud   the  school  have  reached a   horrible state  of demoralization.      They have just  finished  the job  of firing their latest  principal   and   bis   predecessor   went  down  as the  result of  the subtle  disturbing influence a few months before.  The feminine stormy  petrel in this instance  is a medical  doctor and   she  happens  to he  of  that  exasperating,  nagging, "I told you so" kind of which  the  suffragette ranks are full to overflowing.    Like her class of woman too  she seems   to have her   knife   into tire  res* of womankind who may not want  to think or act as she does.    That was  amply shown in   her conduct and language towasds  the lady teachers during the. investigation last  week which  ended in the dismissal of the principal.  It is quite a common thing for her to  tell her- male colleagues  at the Board  meetings  that  ''that statement is an  untruth."     It may seem a rather un-  gallant. speech on the part of the chairman to remark to her at a hoard meeting last   week  "Pity   you   weren't   a  man:   you'd  get your  nose smashed",  but  the  nie.'in  nagging   remarks and  unmannerly  contradictions which led  up   to and   provoked it.   makes   it excusable under the circumstance.  Six pairs of black foxes have been  sold by the Da I ton Ranching Company  of New Brunswick to a Russian nobleman for $100,000.  Victoria, B.C. Nov. ft, 1912  The Department of Agriculture, in  accordance with its policy of tlie past  three years, will con tine the fruit  packing schools during the. coming  winter. The' packing schools proved  even more popular in 1912 than previously and we expect, from the number of applications already in. that  there will be a, great growth in the  work this winter. It is hoped that  this year schools will be placed in  every fruit district of the province,  where a sufficient number of pupils  can be secured.  The class of instruction furnished by  the experts, employed by the department, in previous years has demonstrated its efficiency in meeting the  competition of Oregon and Washington in fruit packing. The experience  and standing of the instructors secured, and the confidence reposed in  them by the department, guarantee to  the fruit growers the highest class of  instruction.  As in previous years the local administration of the. packing schools  will be placed in the bands of a responsible local body, such as the  Farmers" Institute, the Fruit Growers"  Association, or the Board of Trade.  The Department of Agriculture provides the instructor- and pays his expenses, except that of the secretarial  work, which it has been found most  satisfactory to leave to local arrangement.  The responsible organization in each  case will be required to guarantee a  minimum of twelve pupils, but not  more than fifteen, with the_-proper  qualifications, at a fee of three dollars  each, to take the twelve lessons of two  and a half hours'a lesson, the school  extending over orre week. In aliuiited  number of districts a double packing  school can be. arranged tor-, in which  the- miniunnri - -guarantee- ?will -be:'"-;.'  twenty-four pupils, but not more than  thirty, for the same number of lessons. The guaranteeing organization  will also arrange for arrd bear thy ex  peases of the hall, its heating and  lighting.  The hall for fifteen pupils must be  at least 30 feet by 15 feet, and well  lighted. It must be heated sufliciantly  to prevent chilling of the fingers of  the packers, and to prevent freezing of  the fruit at night.  The department will, as far as possible, use local fruit. At the time, of  making application for the packing  school, you are requested to reserve  fruit at the rate of one to three boxes  per pupil. The hardier varieties, such  as Ben Davis, are preferred. Fruit  must be in good condition, but need  not he graded, and.none should run  under two and one-half inches in  diameter. The department will pay  the legitimate market price for this  fruit. If local fruit cannot be secured, the Department should be expressly notified and will undertake to  secure some.  The inspector will bring with him  the necessary packing tables and fruit  paper. The Department expects that  lie will be met on his arrival by some  responsible person, who will provide  him with all necessary information, so  as to get the school under way without loss of time.  It seems hardly necessary to present to you the important advantages  to be gained from the packing school,  particularly in the -way of practical  and thorough instruction in actual  and commercial packing.  Pupils will learn in addition, a good  deal about the methods and equipment,  used by die most progressive Associations, will also learn a good deal of  the interpretation of the Fruit Marks  Act, and will learn a great deal of  value about exhibition packing by attending the packing schools for instruction.  Pupils who gain a score of 75 percent for efficiency in the packing  school, and who put up a creditable  pack for the Department prizes the  following year, may secure a diploma  certifying the same from tho Department.

So prominent is this that Dr. Dawson, the celebrated Canadian geologist, on one of his trips through British Columbia camped one evening  near the present site of Hedley, on the  Similkameen river, about two ini.les  mine, looking up at the mountain.on  which the Nickel Plate mine was years  afterwards discovered, said if he were  prospecting he would prospect this  mountain for a, gold mine. A brother  of Hi-. Arundell. one of the discoverers, was in the. Dawson party, and  after the diecovery of the Nickel Plate  mine recalled this incident.  honestly   followed out  will be  seen in  Lhe paragraph   from the   Oroville Gazette   in  this   i<suo.     We  are  all  disposed   Lu.condemn the spoils  system,  but. after all there is  something really  inspiring  about seeing it carried   out  boldly,   honestly and in  dead earnest.  when viiiive I   in comparison   with the  sneaking hypocrisy which  will openly  denounce it with Peeksnifliian unction  and   secretly practice   it.-ill   the same.  From the day the Laurier administration took office in 1S90 until they were  diiven out a year ago they never (leased  the delectable sport  of-head-hunting: but������iu later years of that administration   then;   were   fewer   dismissals  simply   beeau.se  there were  fewer left  to be dismissed,   and the  offices  they  were holding were  not sufficiently remunerative   to  excite   the   envy   and  covetness of the unprovided-for office-  seekers.    That the first two years was  a  holy   terror   there  is  official   documentary   proof in   the  records  of the  House as may be seen   by anyone who  will turn   up Hansard  of last   session  and  note the   list of  the  slain   which  Was  contained in   a parliamentary return  asked for and brought down in  the Senate.

This slaughter    he    called   "the    bloody   assize"  like     that      of     Judge     Jeffrey      in  the 17th century, and for a parallel in  ancient  history  he.   likened   it to  the  proscriptions of Marios and Sulla.

The. white igneous rocks have been  called andesites , by some geologists  and identified by Camsell as gabro,  carrying a high percentage of lime���������  10%, lime with silica 51% and aluminum  20%. The brecciation is microscopic,  and is easily recognized in slides under  the microscope. The richest ore does  not occur at the contact, but from 0 to  10 feet away, in tiie /.one of greatest  crushing. The payable ore deposits  so far developed .occur only near the  white gabro intrusions. No large ore  bodies have been found near the dior-  ite. although it forms 70% of the  igneous intrusive* in Hie whole district, and there is no diorife occuring  near the Nickel I'late ore bodies.

Ray llilliarfl, barber, is visiting  friends- in Washington and another  inari 'named Brown is running the shop  in his absence.

At present he expects his stay to be  short so it will be advisable for those  . requiring work to make their arrangements as soon as he arrives.  Mr. .lories has received from New  York the deeds of tbe land required  for cemetery purposes. Now that this  .matter is all arranged satisfactorily  -.-"'the committee .will be free to go ahead  with the laying out of the ground ami  fencing. They are at present calling  for tenders for the fence posts and  other material and also the work.  Three men areleft up at the Golden  Zone to keep the mine pumped out.  This is a, wise provision and should  help to hurry up negotiations. Those  ,'_-. who may be interested in getting  things underway again ��������� will'see the  .'.: advisability 'of acting quickly. If any  further examinations.'arc to be made  now is the time to do it, for it would  cost a good deal of time and money to  do so if the pumps were taken but.    ������������������>���������  A. Wlieeler who arrived from Victoria, on .Saturday clonics that his visit  at the present time has anything to do  with the present crisis in the affairs of  the Golden Zone. It is true he made  a sampling of the shaft since he came  and expresses' his belief in the desira  Irilitj- of keeping the pumps going for  a while to permit of an opportunity  for those who could save the situation  , to do so witliout any unnecessary  hindrance, as soon as the coast clears  sufficient for them to see their way.  Messrs. G.P. Jones and F.H. French  went over to Penticton on Saturday  in Mr. Jones' auto. Unfortunately  the snow ou the summit got troublesome and there was a breakdown with  the result that they had to make thoir  way into Penticton in a rig which  happened to come alorig. A funny  thing about it was that H. A. Turner  came along with his car and had a  breakdown about the same point,  Tweddle's auto next came along and  played the good Samaritan by towing  in Mr. Turner's auto. Mr. Jones'auto  did not get back, to town until some  time later.  The rumor which reached our Keremeos correspondent to the effect that  J. E. Coulter had died in Vancouver  fortunately turns out to have been incorrect. The Gazette has been written  to from Vancouver to make the correction. The report, however, appears  to have had a little ground in that  Mr. Coulter bus been very ill and at  one time was very low, but he has  since made rapid recovery and i.s able  to be up again. The Gazette is pleased  to make the correction and regrets  that tht! mistake should have been  made, for if is not at all pleasant for  any man to read his obituary notice in  a public print, but these vexatious  mistakes will creep in at times.  Tweddle's  auto is hiking daily over  the route between Keremeos and Penticton,   making  the   round  trip  each  day.      The   snow   which   was   a.   bit  troublesome on the summit a fortnight  ago is   better now since the  roads are  frozen   up.    The   Lime of   running has  been changed so as to cut out as much  as possible   the night  runs.    The auto  now  makes   its   start   each   morning  from   Penticton   at 7:00 and meets the  up train   at 1.0:80, after  which it turns  about and makes direct for Penticton,  reaching   there   in  good   time   before  night  sets   in.    This   makes it   better  for through trallic between the Bound-1  a-ry  and Lhe   Okanagan.   ;ind   while it  makes a. night in   Keremeos necessary  for those going over   to the Okanagan  from   Medley   or   Princeton,   yet   to  make up   for that  little inconvenience  they  have the  daylight run  of it and  do not run tho risk of being stalled on  the summit in the night. Coming back  from the.  Okanagan  the connection i.s  as good as ever- it was.  It. G. Sliier left Hedley on Monday  for Vancouver'where; his family is"residing. It was seven years ago last  spring since he ,first came to Hedley  and'opened out business and although  the intervening period bus not seen  Hedley make the advance that was  expected at that time, yet he has succeeded in making a tidy saving which  shows that there i.s room for a good  gents' furnishing business in a town  where the great majority nre men  earning good wages. All the unsold  goods were shipped out so that his  successor will start about the. hiiddlc:  of next month with an entirely new  stock of  the latest fashionable goods.  At the time of going to press  the  affairs of the Golden Zone appear to  be irr arr apparently inextricable muddle.   Mr. 'Brookes is still in  Victoria  where he went about three weeks'ago;  and L. H. Patten  left for Victoria on  Saturday.   Letters have been received  from  Mr. Brookes by  various parties  in  town   which letters  are very optimistic in tone  but lack defmiteness.  He reports progress- in the work of rehabilitating   the    Gold   Plate  Mines  company  under which   name the recent operations  were, carried..-on and  came.to rather a sudden stop although  not perhaps as sudden  after all  as it  might better have been for those who  were doing the  work and furnishing  the staff of life.   Meanwhile lhe men  are fyling their liens for wages under  the new "Mechanics'Lien Act" Avhich  they, find to  be very  much of an improvement on the old one; and if there  is sufficient value in the property and  money enough in  possession of those  who are  most   vitally   interested   in  getting  the values out,   the  new act  should work the trick for them. There  is a  rumor current also   to the- effect  that interest   in  the   proceedings   in  Victoria (whatever they'-bo) -is  likely  to  be heightened by the  appearance  on   the scene of our old  friends J.J.  Marks and his brother Tom.    The his-  ,tory of operation on the property during, the last seven -or eight-years might  be  interesting and  the  kaleidoscopic  changes   are    somewhat -'mystifying,  but to many it would   be too much  like ������������������tearing agape the healing wound  afresh".   There  is something mournful  unci depressing in contemplating  these little  business tragedies so incidental  to life in   mining camps, and  while  it is  easy to  be wise after the  event and   to criticise  ungenerously,  it is not so easy at  times to place the  Ilnger* on* the~ real "cause*'for   blame.  Let us nil hope,  however,   that there  may  be a  happier issue   out   of the  difficulty than in the present muddle  seems likely.

IUNDERWEARS  INDIAN   SUMMER  A glance at the weather report will  show  tho kind of  weather  we  have  been having the past week in comparison with  the same  week of last year.  In fact   the  last fortnight   has  been  fairly passable Indian summer weath  er.   Some  in this country are  in the  habit of calling the first balmy days of  September   Indian  summer, but they  are altogether mistaken   in   this.    Indian summer in   Canada is a  November product of the  weather  man and  in earlier days in Ontario nothing was  permitted  to   qualify  as Indian summer that came before   there had been  a good   fall   of snow;   but  there  were  many    other    subtle    characteristics  necessary to qualify,  and   these have  all been beautifully set forth  by Canadian and  American   poets.     Longfellow's only Canadian poem calls it "the  summer of all-saints".    The truest and  most poetic description of Indian .summer was that by Susanna Moodic.   .It  is  that   line  old   poem   that   used   to  grace  tin;  pages of  the  old   Ontario  fourth reader:  ".By the purple haze that lies  On the distant rocky heights,  By the deep blue of the skies.  By the smoky amber lights.

Cleveland, chief engineer on  the trans-provincial survey, came in  town Friday nnd was met by road  supt. Turner who drove him.through  to Prince the same day.  Joe Armstrong brought in from  Penticton seven head of thoroughbred  rams and on Monday took Lliein up  the Ashnola to Juniper mountain,  where he bus loO) head of sheep rang-  Mrs Kntlieriiie McLeocl of the W.  C.T.LT. and formerly lady principal of  Okanagan college came in from Penticton last Saturday and holding a  meeting the same evening in which  she talked,to the mothers. On Sunday  afternoon she addressed the young  people on moral education.  They say competition is Lhe life of  trade yet at tbe same time too much  of it can be done in a small town.  Owing to this E. M. Crooker decided  to close his butcher shop. If there  were four general stores, two blacksmith shops, two hardware stores,  two milk businesses and two livery  barns where would they all get off at?  Mr. and Mrs. R-. L. Gibson left on  Monday evening forLethbridge where  they intend to make their future  home. They will be greatly missed by  their many friends and especially by  the Methodist Church workers among  whom they both have been closely  connected in the past. Mrs. Gibson  lias been the leader of the choir for  the last two years and -will be more  than missed for some time.  A large gasoline traction engine anci  (lower sprayer were shipped in by the  Sitiiilkauieen .Fruitlund Co. and were  unloaded here Monday. The engine is  of the latest type and will be used to  break up many hundreds of acres on  the company's property as well as  other kinds of work where a good deal  of power is needed. The traction went  out under its own power to the It  ranch.  On Sunday night a light was seen  going up the mountain south of town.  About twenty people at the livery  barn and others around town watched  the. light on the move but none could  give a reason as to why anyone should  be trotting round the bill with n lantern. On Monday morning the tale of  the spooky light, was laid bare. It  happened that Andrew Robertson lind  a few lambs out ranging, and for protection against coyotes and other lamb  liking creatures, set a lantern out nil  night.  On Saturday evening the Molasses  Limited and   the   postmaster   had  a  hundred and fifty  mile dash  and the  Limited   won.     A rush  order  for tbe  Gazette  caused   the  race   to  be   run.  The mail  came in on time and by the  time the Hedley suck was emptied the  train had started: nevertheless the PM  grabbed   the special Gazettes,   which j  about that   time   were   worth   theirl  weight  in gold,  and stnrted  at a 2:40 j  gait with the Limited in the lead   His j  intentions  were to reach tbe observation car and throw the papers in.   Did  he  do  it? nix.   for  bis foot caught in  tbe cinders and he snt down awhile to  figure  out how   fast ho  had been travelling.     [By  this  it  looks  as if  the  Keremeos  postmaster  is  too  slow to  catch molasses  in November.��������� comp.j  On Saturday lust tbe sad news  reached the Rev. Mr. Cameron of the  death of his sister Jessie nt Calgary on  the previous evening. It only seems a  very short while ago that Miss Cameron was with us nnd it can hardly be  realized that the dear old lady has  passed away. Mr. Cameron left within it couple of hours after receiving  word for Calgary. Through these  columns we offer our deepest sympathy to Mr. Cameron and all relatives in these sad hours.  The game stnrted nt 10 p.m. Saturday night when H. B. Meausette, Ben  Nickle nnd George Emory stnrted oif  on a deer limit; at a quarter time they  were nt Bryant's .cabin on the Ashnola. After n little rest the game continued and before half time arrived  seven deer had been sighted; half time  arrived at Menusette's and Nickel's  with still no score. The rest of the  game is not worth mentioning as the  deer simply ran the hunters off their  feet and managed to keep away till  the call of time.  On Friday afternoon last at the  Presbyterian church. Arrna Pedy and  Frnni* G. Surge were joined in holy  matrimony, by the Rev. Mr. McKen  sue. After the wedding the happy  couple proceeded to their home across  tbe river nt which a number of their  friends had gathered to welcome them.  On Monday Frank and his bride departed on the evening train for Pinch-  Creek where they intend spending a  few days before returning to Keremeos. We join with their many  friends in wishing them a long, pros-'  perous nnd hnppy married life.  ofti&JD  >pt*p  my  fyuetb'Caritjegua/  rMte  DYOLA  0NEDYE">������ALIKINDS*'M������������-I  it's the CLEANEST, SIMPLEST, and BEST HOME  DYE, one can buy-.Why you don't even have to  linow wtmt KIND of Cloth your Goods are made  of.--So Mistakes arc Impossible.

SAFE AS THE SAFEST  AND  Cheaper than the Cheapest  is a straight life policy in  THE MUTUAL LIFE  OF CANADA  The history of thousands of policies  on the above plan shows that it has  cost less than four dollars per year to  carry a policy of one thousand dollars.  If you doubt this call on the local representative anel see the history of  one policy for 26 years; then ask yourself whether you know-' of any other  concern whether insurance company  or benevolent society that can show a  similar record.  1  Every Plan of '-'Genuine Insurance  It is the  people's Company and   its  profits are nil for the people  This accounts for the wonderful success which lias attended forty-two  years of unparalleled progress and  achievement.
