Bar Stocked with Best Brands  of Liquor and Cigars  X A.  WINKLER,     Proprietor, g  The 17fch was awaited, in Hedley  with more than ordinary interest, for  it whs understood that was the date  the directors of the Hedley (Sold Mining Company would meet to decide  the two momentous questions "what"  and "when".  These two questions were answered  by the telegram received by W. A.  McLean on Monday evening 17th inst  which said :  ���������'Directors have decided to instal  power plant at once. Push it along.  ' - G, P. Jones."  This of course bore no other interpretation to Mr. McLean than that  the work to be pushed was the work  he had left off on Saturday the 8th  inst. of which he had sufficient detailed instructions to keep his crew going  for some time. Fortunately he had  much of the preliminary work done,  with roads made to haul material on  the ground and considerable of the  excavatiorr work for. the darn itself  dug in the portion of the river bed  which is inundated in high water  only; and fortunately also most of the  men who had been'laid off when the  work was discontinued a week before,  were still in camp and ready to go to  work at an hour's notice.  In fact Mr. McLean has about all the  help he needs and it would be a misfortune to have men in large numbers  crowding in looking for employment  when there is only a limited number  can be employed to advantage. In  cases of this kind absurd and exaggerated reports of the number to be employed often get spread through the  country arid-men are led to crowd in  where they are,not needed.  Those around the hotels and lodging  houses were told to be on hand early  Tuesday morning and work was resumed with a good gang.  The dam  which is to run diagonally  across  the river is  to.be 400 feet long,  with the lower end about 200 feet below the mouth of Twenty-mile Creek,  The   excavation   which   has  already  been  made has proven  the beneficial  effect of the slimes which  have been  discharging  into the river from  the  mouth; of Twenty-mile Creek since the  stamp-mill started nearly   ten  years  ago,  for   it renders   the  gravel   and  sands of the river bottom impervious  to water and thereby adds a most important element to the strength and  security of any dam  constructed   irr  the vicinity.     Where fcheTnen were  digging below this argillaceous mantle  formed by the slime accumulations of  nearly ten  years rim, it was found to  be quite  dry although lower than the  bottom  of  the channel  in which the  water of the river was flowing a few  feet distant.    The importance of this  fact may be readily seen  and it is the  intention after the dam is finished to  allow slimes to  run into the mill pond  freely for a few  weeks or mouths to  supply     the    protecting    impervious  mantle to the gravel disturbed by excavation  in  the construction   of the  dam.  In about a week or ten days more  they expect to be pouring cement in  the construction of the dam arrd it is  understood that a cement-mixing machine will be here in a few days.  The dam will be of re-inforced concrete and the re-inforcement is to be  done by means of a net-work of inch  thick wire cable of which there is an  abundant supply orr hand in the miles  of discarded cable that has accumulated from the operation of the gravity  tramway orr which a new cable is  placed about every nine or ten months  or as often as the cable in use is found  to exhibit the slightest effect of wear.  It has always been the policy of the  company to take no chances with  their cables as there was too much at  stake to allow one to be used to anything near the breaking point.    Much  being  PREMIER ADDRESSES  CONSTITUENTS  CONTRACTION IN  WORLD'S TRADE  Premier    McBride   Deals   with   Public  Questions Dominron and Provincial  In Penticton they regard the newspaper story to the effect that q, nuw  route was about to be selected to run  from the neighborhood of Aspen  Grove to the headwaters of Deep  Creek and thence dowrr that stream to  the vicinity of- Peachland, as a pipe  dream emanating from some source  where the writer- of the story knew  little about the lay of the larrd. Before the route up Trout Creek to  Osprey Lake was decided upon the  Peachland route was surveyed and  carefully examined and found to be  impracticable. Furthermore the grade  has already been constructed on the  greater- part of the way to Osprey  Lake and the tracklayer is at present  laying the steel on it at the rate of  over a mile a day.  The only uncertainty said to be existing at present is for the route west  of Osprey. It is an undoubted fact  that the route would be shortened  materially by running direct from  Osprey to Aspen Grove and if operating as a through line was the only  consideration to be regarded that is  the route it would take. But there  are local interests in the Siinilkameen  that the railway cannot afford to pass  by, arrd furthermore they are. under  pledge to touch the iShuilkameen.  There are some who think, however,  that the final solution of that part of  the pioblem will be that there will be  both the through line from Osprey to  Aspen Grove and also a loop down  Five Mile to Princeton and up the  Tulameen to join on to the coast route  farther on.  MAIL ORDER HOUSES  :���������'���������'*���������        -      BUY NEWSPAPERS  From The Dry Goods Review  The big departmental stores continue to'extend'their interests in or control of the daily newspapers in  Toronto,   Montreal,    and ,'Winnipeg.    A  large interest in, if not the control  of,  another Toronto daily has just  been  acquired.   .This'makes three dailies in  which  these  mail  order   houses   are  financially interested.    In    Montreal  it came put in  legal proceedings recently that one  of  the oldest  daily  papers there passed some months ago  into the chief owner of a rising mail  order house which aims to monopolize  the trade into Eastern Canada.   There  are now nine dailies in Toronto,  Winnipeg and Montreal, which are known  to be owned, or.controlled by, the   big  .store    and   financial   interests,   and  while posing as the mediums of public opinion are the organs of these  interests.     The  trade of these   houses  has grown enormously in these cities  where  these dailies  circulate,  but   in  the other cities   and smaller   places  where there are good local newspapers,  they have rrot made the same gains,  because the local newspapers are well  edited and are loyal to their local merchants and refuse to carry the adver-  tisinc of the big city store.   The only  way irr which the big dailies can make  headway   is    by cutting   the prices.  They get $3 to $5 a year in Montreal,  Toronto and Winnipeg,  but sell   in  other cities at 50c to $1 a year.    This  does not pay for  the  white  paper on  which these newspapers are printed,  but the heavy deficits are made up -by  subsides through big advertising contracts and in other ways, and  by  the  low postal rates.   The merchants and  newspapers outside of these three big  ceutres should get together and insist  that no  newspaper  should have  the  privilege of the  mails  which    has  a  lower subscription price outside  than  in the centre in which it is  published  or which sells at less than cost of the  paper used.  Victoria, Nov. 12.���������A vigorous defence of tho railroad policy of the government, supported by figures of the  actual work of construction, and a  stirring appeal for a broader outlook  on the question of Imperial naval  defence, were the features of an address made by Sir Richard McBride  to an audience which filled every scat  in the Kineruacolor Theatre here to  to-night.  So great was the demand for admission that some time before the hour  for opening the meeting it was found  necessary to close the doors, and hundreds .who arrived later were unable to  gain admission.  The Premier received an ovation on  entering the building, and cheering  was renewed when, after a few introductory remarks by Mr. William Blake-  more, the chairman, Mr. H. B. Thomson, M. P. P., and Dr. H. E. Young,  Minister of Education, he rose to address the meeting.  FAITHFULLY CARRIED OUT.  "There has never been in the history of this country," said Sir Richard, "a railway policy that has been  so faithfully carried out, and I challenge contradiction on this point.  With regard to the Canadian Northern, we promised when we introduced  that system to bring it to Vancouver,  Victoria and through the Island, and  by the first day of July, 1914, to have  a great section of the road completed.  "There has been a record made in railroad building-in this province which  no other part of the Dominion can  equal. There are today 220 miles of  steel laid on , the Mainland, and grading and tracking is practically continuous on all the uncompleted sections  frour the tidewater on the Pacific to  the eastern boundary of the province,  with the exception of a small   section.  REPLIES TO CRITICS.  To those critics who say that another transcontinental road was unnecessary I point out that the C. P. R.,  with its years of experience, is expending $40,000,000 in double trackmg its  lines in the West. Over thirty millions of dollars have already been  spent on this untertaking and a great  many millions have yet to be spent.  How does the last Liberal administration with its new trancontinental  railway compare with the Provincial  Government and the Canadian Northern? The national road has already  cost ten times as much as the original  estimate and the policy of favoring  the Canadian Northern in other  pares of the Dominion becomes a crime  when applied to this province.  In addition to the Canadian Northern we have the Kettle Valley costing  over twenty millions, which will be  through in eighteen months.  5000   MEN*   EMPLOYED  On the Pacific Great Eastern 5000  men are at present employed, distributed over- 170 miles, and next year  trains will be running from Howe  Sound to Lillooet, and the construction trains will be operating over the  entire system. Mr. J. J. Hill of the  V. V. & E. has completed arrangements for conquering the Coquihalla  summit. and irr coinjunction with  his American section he proposes  making direct contact with Hope and  Vancouver."  English Authority Says It Has been Al-  .   most Impossible to Obtain Capital  Sir George Paishi editor- of the London Statist, is in America to ascertain  how far the world conditions of credit  are affecting and are likely to affect  the prosperity of the American people.  To'the Wall Street Journal, Sir  George said: "After the long period  of excellent credit in which the younger countries of the world have been  able to borrow large sums of money  for their development, there has been  since the'Balkan war began ever increasing difficulty in obtaining loans  of capital needed ��������� to -complete the  great works under construction all  over the world; iind itlias been impos-  sable to obtain new capital for hew  work. ��������� ���������  WILL   CHECK   TRADE.  "The result of this condition of  tilings is great financial stringency in  all countries, and a severe check has  been given to the general prosperity  and to the great activity of trade.  Having regard to the difficulties  experienced by borrowers everywhere^  it is obvious that efforts must be concentrated on completing work aheady  ci'tnmenced and that no fresk work  will be begun until after capital and  banking money become more plentiful.  Consequently somewhat severe contraction will go will depend upon two  or'three countries, more particularly  the United St-ites. France and England.  IS  TO  VISIT   CANADA.  "My present visit to this country is  for the purpose of ascertaining how  far the conditions in the-United States  make for the maintenance of world  prosperity, or rather how far they  will contribute to prevent extreme  trade depression the world over."  Sir George purposes travelling extensively, visiting the more important cities in the United States and  Canada.���������Monetary Times.  FARMING IN OKANAGAN  Fruit  and Other Farm   Products   Now  Reach Colossal Sums  One hundred and thirty carloads of  fruit and pi oduce were shipped from  the Okanagan Valley during the week  ending Nov. 4th, according to figures  compiled for the Vernon News by C.  P. R. freight agents. These shipments  brings the total for the year, in carload lots only, to 1583, which, ata  conservative valuation of $750 a car,,  represents an export value of $1,187,-.  250. Shipments reported for the week  and year are as follows :  Week  Vernon....'.  .-. 42  Okanagan Landing..  ......41  Armstrong..,...'.. 40  Enderby...... .. 6  In addition to the six cars of produce  noted above, Enderby shipped out 17  carloads of lumber and one of brick.

The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. have secured possession of the  Coffee Creek air compressor at Ains-  worth which is the only compressor of  that type in the Dominion. Water- is  conveyed in a flume to the compressor  and dropped 200 feet forcing compressed air into tanks fronr which it is  drawn as required. The compressor  will be used by the company to carry  on its mining operations in the Ains-  worth district.'  Those of our readers who are interested in the raw fur business will  I find it to there advantage to keep in  touch with the fur market. There is  no better way foi- you to get this information and protect yourself than  through the publication issued by A.  B. Schubert, Chicago. "The Schubert  Shipper" is sent to thousands of trappers and shippers of raw furs in the  United States and Canada, and they  would just as soon go without their  traps or- gun as to miss a copy of  "The Shubert Shipper" when ft is issued. It is not a magazine, it contains  no advertisement whatever, and every  word in it is good sound market news  on every branch of the fur business.  Write the above mentioned firm if  you would like to have the fur news.  New York, Nov. 15���������Hon. George E.  Foster and Hon. L. P. Pelletier, with  Mr. W. J. Gerald, president of the  Canadian Club of Ottawa, who were  here last night as the guests of the  Canadian Club of this citv, left to-night  on their return trip home.  During the afternoon the Postmaster-General visited the General Post  Office and various parcel stations  throughout the city where the postal  authorities gave the Canadian offici-.il  every opportunity to witness the  working of the parcels post system  which has proved such an enormous  addition to the work of the department.  Mr. Pelletier expressed his conviction that the system which will be inaugurated in Canada, at the beginning  of 1014 will prove as great a. boom to  Canada as the system now in vogue  in this country has proved itself.  The proprietors of the Commercial  Hotel in Penticton have obtained a 21  year lease on coal lands near Ashcroft  Which have been declared by experts  to have very valuable deposits of coal.

To  .show the extent to which she has fall  en short, Mr. Langlois has been investigating the curriculum anil the textbooks in use in the schools and he has  been able to show from these that tlie  histories and geographies they have  still teach that Canada is composed  of two provinces known as Upper- and  Lower Canada and that some of the  other dope which the pupils are asked'  to believe about their own country is  not only what existed when Canada  was made up of Upper and Lower  Canada, but what it was about the  time of the Treaty of Paris in "703.  The Bishops appear to have made a  vciy great mistake in adopting the  altitude towards Mr. Langlois which  I hey have done.  result  would have  been held down to  a tie at least.    It was but another case  of  "Which stood thestoim when waves were  Yet in the sunny hour fell oil", [rough.  Like ships that have gone down at sea  When heaven was all tranquility."  METEOROLOGICAL.  THE BANK OF  LOCAL. MEWS  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The visit of the editor of the London  Statist to   the United States and Canada  and the  interviews  he has given  out as shown in another column makes  some  of the  speeches   of  Sir   Wilfrid  Laurier   in   the   recent   bye-elections  read   rather    funny.       This   eminent  financier   and   political economist  can  see in the present  money stringency a  world-wide   trade depression effecting  old   lands as   well as   the newer  countries, but Sir Wilfrid jauntily told the  electors   of  Ohateauguay   and  South  Bruce that it was all due to hi.s removal  from   the  treasury   benches.     According   to  Sir   Wilfrid   the   prosperity of  the whole  world depends  upon  keeping him in power in Canada, even  if Instability as a, financier is illustrated    by    the    fact    that   the    Grand  Trunk   Pacific   has   already   cost   the  count'-y  in hard  cash   a sum which is  ten times   that which Sir Wilfrid told  parliament   it   was going  so  cost   ten  veai s ago.  Those who may think that the days  of  rnartrydom   for a    cause   are  past  should  examine  the  case  of  Godfroi  Laru-lois, editor aiid'' proprietor of Le  Pays, a French paper published inth e  city of Montreal.    The   Roman Oath:  olio bishops of the Province of Quebec  have issued   an   order, to   the  various  parishes   in   tbe  province   forbidding  members of their fllock    from-paying  for,   reading,   or  in   any other    way  recognizing    Langlois'     paper.      This  ecclesiastical    boycot    of    his    paper  practically spells ruin to the publisher  of Le Pays.    And what  has been   the  man's    offence     which     would     call  down   upon him  such serious punishment?     Simply that he has carried on  a propaganda   in  his  newspaper and  in the Legislature, (for he is a, member  of the  Legislative   Assembly for that  province,)   demanding  for the  youth  of   his  province a  liberal  education.  The educational  system in   that  province which by far the greater number  of  children in Quebec  are  dependent  upon    to  fit them  for the   duties  of  after life and permit them  to make  their:  way in   competition   with   the  youth   of  other  provinces,   is far  behind  the    times   and   places a   cruel  handicap upon    those   who   have   no  better.   This fact has been fully recognized  by Langlois and all he asks i.s  that the schools of the province be  graded up to a standard somewhat approaching that in the other provinces.  To do  this he advocates state control  of the schools such as we have in all  The Gazette i.s indebted to Mr. Fin-  lay Fraser for a photo from the architect's design of tbe "Fairy'Village in  the Clouds" at Glacier-, B. C, where  Foley, Welsh it Stewart are running  the big tunnel for the 0. P. R. This  tunnel is to be 1.0 miles long :*t a point  in the Selkirks where very deep snows  prevail in the winter season that  would bury up ordinary sized lodging  houses for the men and cut off ingiess  or egress. So. to get rid of lhe difficulty and labor of eternally shovelling  snow, with no room to get rid of it,  the plan has been adopted of constructing the enormous bunk houses in two  long rows of two-storey buildings with  ���������in elevated and l on fed .sidewalk which  in this ease would be more fittingly  termed "centre-walk" between them  and little bridges from this centre  walk to the. upper storey of the bunk-  houses. . Theie are three buildings  30x310, 30x270 and 41x1-14, the last  mentioned being the boiler and power  house. Of the second mentioned building 72 feet is 00 feet wide. Tbe claim is  made that it is lhe most comfortable  and tip-to date railway construction  camp that, has ever been seen in any  coiuiti y. It is not yet fully completed  although parts of it have been occupied  for a month or two.  Mi-. Arthur Hickling of the Princeton Coal and Land Company writes to  the Rossland Miner giving his experience in connection with the (-uaian-  i tine for small-pox. He was assured  by the. G.N.R. agent at Rossland that  he would have no difficulty in getting  into tlie Siinilkameen, but when he  reached Nighthawk he was asked for  a, vaccination certificate "six months  old or under" and had to spend the  day there until lhe tram returned in  tlie evening when lu: went back to  Oroville and was vaccinated there, be  cause tlie certificate lie held was six  years old instead of six months. Tbe  points upon which he would like an  explanation are as to why tin; agent at  Rossland could not have told him before he left there, and also why the  time had been shortened up to six  months when it was generally understood that the effect of vaccination  was to render one immune for seven  years. The health officer who stipulated the period as six months can  doubtless explain the reason for making it that recent, and the Great  Northern will have to take the responsibility of failure to have their agents  in other places posted when a regulation of that kind affecting public  travel   on their lines   has been passed.

The ore is  hauled by auto truck to Oroville and  there shipped by the Great Northern.  Work has been commenced on the  driving of a tunnel into the Snowshoe  mine at Phoenix at a point considerably lower than previous operations  at the property. After some years of  ox.tensive "glory hole" operations at  the Snowshoe the Consolidated company ceased work at the property in  1912 and it was generally inferred that  the Snowshoe was worked out. The  present tunnel is being driven by the  Granby company, it i.s stated, and the  exploring of the Snowshoe at a depth  is the intention.  4 _ _.. ;. .���������      ��������� <     "  $ TAKE A LOOK AT OUR  WINDOW DISPLAY    J  FOR FREE GIFTS  FRASER.

This resulted in another  win for theirr of two up and one to  play.  A return match was asked by James  and Martin with a modified handicap  which was by consent agreed to be reduced to five strokes on each round.  In this game the winners in the former two matches did not put up as good  a game as usual arid were beaten three  np and one to play. But in the second  round Miss Jackson played excellent  golf, and but for a spurt on the part  of the opponents and a slump that  round in the play of her partner the  In tlie Matter of Alder Creek.

An active  . committee are now at work making  full arrangements and particulars will  be given later-.  The B. O. Portland Cement plant  was closed down last week to permit  the completion of some necessary repairs. They expect to open up again  in about, a week and have been assured that when they nre able to start up  again the United Empire Company  will be in a position to supply them  with whatever coal they'may need.  It is hoped, however, that the manager of the United Empire will not be  as far out in his estimate of what his  company will he able to do in that  line as he has been on former occasions.  Mr,  John  Power of Penticton, .accountant for the Southern Okainigan  Land Co., was in  Hedley on Saturday  last on his  first visit to  Similkameen.  He accompanied road supervisor H.A.  Turner-,  and  they went  up as far as  Tulameen.     Mr. Power  was formerly  a resident of New  Westminster-  lint  has  been identified  with the  work of  the  Southern  Okanagan Land   Company since  they  began operations in  the spring of 1905 and now  his enthusiasm  is all for the fruitful dry belt  which he has seen   transformed from  arid  cactus-covered  valley and bench  land and made to blossom as the "rose.  Dr. McEwen received confirmation  of his appointment from Ottawa to  look   after   health  regulations.     He  has full power to maintain guards not  only on  the rail wry- to prevent   the  importation  of any more  small-pox,  but guards on the roads and  trails  as  well, and it  is  his  intention  to  keep  things  tight    up  until  those    across  the line who are  responsible  for  the  menace will make  up  their minds   to  quit playing with the situation and  begin to clean up.    The way tor them  to clean up is to clean out the  triflers.  .Word i eceived from Mr. Brown who  was here a few weeks ago' iii connection with the Golden Zone would indicate that he is not.-likely ��������� to ero..further, in the matter.i .Mr' Brown does  not care to mix lip much in. corporations but likes to' run his own' show  and prefers a property that would  offer sufficient encouragement to induce him to go the entire thing on his  own resources. He had seen a great  deal of the operations of mining in  Cobalt where many of the properties  require less initial expense before they  give returns than is the rule in British  Columbia. The people here would  have been pleased to have had him a  resident in the camp and were in hope  that the Golden Zone would suit him  hut he knows his own business best.  The American mail clerks' on the  trains between Oroville and Spokane  are about the limit for blundering  in the despatch of mail matter consigned to offices ou this side'of "the  line. The��������� bundles of coast, dailies intended for Hedley are repeatedly going through to Princeton which invai i-  ably results in their not being received  here until the. next day. Sometimes  it is one paper that goes past and  sometime.*! another, When the road  gets through to the coast and the mail  follows an all-Canadian route an improvement is looked for. At all events  if blunders of this kind continue a kick  to the .department will be productive  of results. At present the making of  a kick would he only so much lost  efl'ort.  The moving picture shows ot!_Friday  and Saturday last were well pation-  iz'ed. '" The main piece in three reels  was a biblical subject entitled '"The  Star of Bethlehem" and had been gotten up .with apparent heavy expense  to impersonate tlie various characters  represented. For the teaching of  biblical history to the youth there is  no question that films of this character would be beneficial, but whether it  would conduce to orthodoxy among  the majority of grown-ups who go for  amusement alone and are not disposed  to mix up an undue amount of reverence with their entertainment, the ex  periment might be considered doubt  ful. At all events those disposed to  levity in such matters might help  somewhat their own self, respect and  jar less, upon others who regard such,  things diti'er-ehtlv, if thev would en.-  deavor to restrain.-a little, their irreverent tendencies.  Mr-.   G."  Hess  of Denver,   Colorado,  was. in town' last week  exhibiting  a  new  thing in   the way of a sheet iron  flume  which looks  to be  a very- efficient arrangement.     As  a -'conduit'- of  water in large  volume  such  us is re  quired  iri  hydraulic  power  plants or  for the. larger  irrigation schemes,   it-  should give   good   satisfaction.    . An  eloquent argument in   its favor is the  cheapness with which it can be install  ed and maintained in comparison with  the cost of steel  piping required   to  carry the same  volume of water.    It-  can be put  in for about a dollar a foot  cheaper than the  wood stave piping  and not much in advance of the cost of  board flume of  the same dimensions,  while it is guaranteed to  neither leak  nor freeze and to outlast from three to  four  wooden  flumes..    The sheet iron  used  is galvanized  1(3 gauge  and not  an ounce of soder is  used irr making  the joints  which are  claimed to be so  tight  that the  flume  would cany its  full capacity of gasoline without leaking a drop.   What this would mean in  efiiriency over a leaky  board   flume'  can be re.tdily  imagined.     Unfortunately the  ha.ng up in plans for installing the  power  plant on   the Similkameen  river,  and  the  absence  of Mr.  Jones gave him  the trip for nothing,  as  no one about the  works  was  in a  position   to   negotiate.      As a  result  Mr.  Hess  was  compelled   to   go  out  again without accomplishing  the mission  on which  he came,  although he  will doubtless be back later.

The ladies of Keremeos are very  anxious to get up a hockey team, so if  the ladies of our sister towns get together right now, for now's the time,  and form teams we will all be able to  enjoy the good sport, and help to  make things as lively and cheerful as  possible for the coming winter.  The W. H. Armstrong residence is  almost completed there just being a  few tilings to be finished' in and around  the house. The frame 'work of the  greenhouse is up and all ready for the  glass.

Miss Scott is busy getting the aspirants for Christmas Tree, honors  trained down to take their parts in  whatever task is allotted to them.  The little fellows are getting along  nicely and hope to put forward some  nice recitations, songs etc. Last year's  entertainment was altogether too long  and long before old Santa put in an  appearance rrrany of the little fellows  were soundly sleeping.  The skating rink is progressing  splendidly and when completed will  be second to none irr the valley. The  measurements are 60x150 feet. Boards  are now being put around and a well  has been sunk in which water was  struck at 12 feet. A good force pump  will be installed; this will be run by  Keeler's transport auto. Everybody  is looking forward to a fine time skating this winter. The boys nre figuring  on putting a good hockey team on the  ice, and hope to meet Hedley and  Princeton this winter. We know  Hedley has been working very hard to  Uber Villa narrowly escaped from  being destroyed by fire last Saturday  night. About 12 o'clock Mr. and Mrs.  Clarke were awakened by smoke.  They immediately got up, waking the  rest of the household. Mr. Clarke  reached the kitchen, but finding no  fire there buttreniendous heat, he started for the basement, taking a bucket  of water with him. Here he found  the trouble, with a fire getting well  under way near the furnace. With  the help of the family passing buckets  of water Mr. Clarke was able to extinguish the flames. Jt is a hard  thing to say .hist how the fire started.  It is possible that a match or cigarette  end was thrown amongst the wood  the evening of the dance and Had been  smoldering there unsuspected. It was  a lucky thing that there is a very fine  concrete basement in the house, for if  it had not been for this the house  would surely have burnt down.
