Di-awkr IfiO-  PENTICTON,  B. C.  One of  the narrowest squeaks  that  ever happened to a party'of automo-  bilists in this locality befell a quartette from Penticton, about five o'clock  Saturday evening   on  the   Princeton'  road at a  point twelve   miles   west of  Hedley.   _  The   party;   consisting   of  Messrs.  6/ A. Stewart)  E. 0., Holden,  G. XV.  Woodruff and   "Bill" Mason,  the hero of half a dozen similar smash-  ups; were' returning'from Princeton  in   Mr.   Stewart's  Cadillac   and   evidently taking the- curves   in   pretty  lively fashion   when   the car   swung  into  the steep  bank beside  the road,  careened outward and went over the  lower bank,   partially- turning  turtle  but not in  the least injuring the occupants.     How ��������� the entire  party .escaped death  or   serieius' injury   is   a  mystery as   the   car  landed    among  boulders;  lying thicker than  spies in  Potsdam..'    In  reality 'they probably  saved  the lives of the men by preventing the machine from- rolling over on  them: bi*.t. tliey' wrought   sad  havoc  .upon the car.   Both front wheels were  demolished;    the    wind    shieltl   was  smashed;   the steering gear   disabled  and  the entire front of the machine  pretty well Louvained.    Monday the  ambulance'crops; headed by Mr. Stew-  arel,' proceeded- to thescene -of the accident to report on the  extent of the  casualties" and remove the remains to  Goodwin  & Turner's- repair  shop at  Princeton.    The damage will probably  amount,  all told,   to nearly- five  hun-.  dred dollars; and while this is a pretty,  severe  blow   to   Mr:;; Stewart,   those  who  know   the riven road   will agree  that  the party-were lucky.,;to get off,  without loss of life or limb.

A good variety programme  was presenteel and the nunibeis were  as happil3T varied as they were judiciously selected. As we have not had  before a real opportunity e>f hearing  the band perform within the confines  of the concert hall, considerable curiosity'was evinced when they swung  into the opening bars of tlie first number. It must be confessed however  that the boys acquitted themselves  with the same credit as has marked  their open air'efforts.  The programme was so well balanced that it is difficult to pick out  the bright and particular stars of the  evening; but, if a vote of the audience  were taken, perhaps the award wemlel  go' to little Dorothy Critchley whose  dancing took the house by storm. The  various piano Jseleptions by Prof.  Glaze were alsu much appreciated,  while Mrs. Forbe-s and Mrs. Michell  were never heard to better effect. Jack  Howe performeel in his own accepta'ble  manner, anel was as usual the encore  "victim" of the evening. .Mr. George  Lyon furnished a couple of spicy dancing numbers, and Mrs. Lyon performed most pleasingly on the vmlin,  while Mrs. Sproule sustained her reputation as an accomplished accom-  paniest. Altogether, - the Band may  be congratulated oir the success of the  concert.

APPEARS TO -BE FINAL  More Mention   of The  Voigt Propvrty  BROUGHTON STRAIT IS  CLOSED FOR DEFENCE  Authorities at Ottawa Take  Measures to  Protect Vancouver from Naval Raid  HOTEL SIMILKAMEEN^  HEDLEY, B. C.  An Up-to-date  First-Class Hotel  RATES MODERATE  DOLLEMORE  Proprietor.  BOLL   ME   A GAME   AT   ROLLS  It was officially announced last week  that the western portion of Brought-  on Strait, near Vancouver Islanel, is  closed to navigation for purposes of  defence. Vessels going by way of  Ellen Point Channel are in danger of  being fired on, it is announced.  While no reason has been assigned  officially for this action, it is popularly  believed to be due to apprehension as  to a possible attack from the German  fleet that defeated British warships  recently off the coast of Chile.  Relative to the .turnover of the  Voigt property which \Vas mentioned  some weeks ago in these columns, the  Monetary Times makes the following  note in its Novernberdssue.  The Similkameen Consolidated Copper Company has been organized with  a capitalization of $2,000,000 to take  over the entire group of the Voigt  properties near Princeton in tho Similkameen. A close examination has  been made and it is believeel the copper assets will aft'orel reserves for 75  years. It is arranger! that the capitalization i.s to be increased later to $20,-  000,000."  A good story which will be relished  by golfers and liaseball fans alike has  been going the rounds of the press  lately. It runs somewhat as follows:  Christy Mathewson took Heinie  Zimmerman over to the Van Coit-  landt club links a few days ago to  teach the big slugger the great and  ancient game of golf. As Zimrnex"-  man squared away at the tee Matty  said:  "You see, the object of this game is  to hit the ball'into the little hole by  that flag you carr just see over the  hill.".  "Heine," who can hit a baseball  farther than rihy man in the major  leagues, whistled the ball off the tee  and over, the hill towards the hole.  As he walked up on the green he  found his ball was lying within about  a foot of the cup, he iooked at it a  minute and then said: ������  "By gosh, I missed it."  Much   interest  was aroused and no  little excitement createelMonday when  J. W. Douglas gave  out the news of a  very rich, strike  in tunnel  No. 2,   on  the Golden King mine, a property located some six miles west of Oroville,  on the  north side of the Sirnilkaineen  liver.  As evidence that the strike was  authentic and   genuine   Mr.  Douglas-  had arr  assay certificate   giving   the  result  of arr assay of  the ore,  anel.it  shows  a value  of $805.30,   all in gold!'  This ore,  as stated above,   was taken  .from tunnel No. 2, on the Golden King  mine.     It  was  not a   assay   fronr   a  picked  specimen,   but from a uniform  sample  chipped from across  the face  of a four-foot vein.    The sample was  simply  chippetl  off   for   assay,   as is  customary  in all mining,  for the pur-  .  pose of keeping check oil the geneial  run of the ledge,   by J. C. Fisher, who  has  charge of the  work,  and the  return was as much as a surprise to him  and  Mr.   Douglas   as  to   the general  public,     The average, value of the ore  in   the  h'dge since" work  commenceel  has run   frtrong.    There   had   been no  perceptible  change  in   the  nature  of  .the ore, and what was being extracted  was going over the dump.     Now that  the  values prove  to be  so high, more  '  caie  will be  taken to  save  the ledge  matter   for   future-    reference.     THe"  strike is one of the  ruost remarkable  that has ever been matle  in this part  of the country.     Frequently rich free "  gold specimens have  been found, and  stringers  "nave  been  discovered   that  gave assays  running high  in the hundreds, but here is a ledge four feet  wide  that returns a-value of $800 to  the  ton  from a cold   blooded sample  across the face.- Oroville Gazette.  The elevelopinent on Rocher de  Boule mountain by mining men from  Butte,- Montana, has advanced particularly this summer with "great suc-  ^T^fr--Tlie--4~aj:.e'^Wo-,i!^  on*'the ore bodies of about 700 feet.,  The Standard mine is to the" nbith of _  Rocher de Boule about ten miles, and. .  last year's development has shown up  the ore bodies there well. Progress  was held up on this .property when  word came from the smelter people  that no more ore could be accepted  from that part of the country, the  company, therefore shutting down.���������  Rossland Minen-.  THE WISDOM OF THE CHILD  GENERAL JOTTINGS  The Canadian Railway and Marine  World, November issue, says: "We  are officially adviseel that the C. P. R.  has under consideration the ordering  of two additional steamships with a  speeel of twenty knots an hour for its  Atlantic service."  De Wet is one of the few athletes  who can "come back" He is just as  speedy on the hike as he was fifteen  year's ago.  Rosslanel is elisconsolate. Nelson  has seduced Chief Thomas Long and  Officer Alex Stewart of her police  force.  The agitation for a night school  at Merritt has fallen through.  In some communities there are still  resident aliens at large, openly preach-  in n sedition. The Attorney-General  is being deluged with letters, enquiring  what kind of oil these gentry should  be boiled in.  The following skit was sent to us  without name, comment or other  brand mark by an unknown admirer  in Vancouver.  "A youngster whose father was editor of a small town daily, was asked  tu write a. composition on Professional Men.  "When  an editor makes a mistake  there is a lawsuit anel swearing anel a  big  fuss;   but is  a eloctor makes one  there is a funeral, cut flowers and perfect silence.    A doctor carr use a word  a yard long  without him or anybody  knowing  what  it means;  but  if   the  editor uses one  he has to spell it.    If  the doctor goes   to see another  man's  wife  he charges  for  the visit; but if  the  editor goes,  he gets a charge of  buckshot.      When    the   doctor gets  drunk it is a case of being overdone  by the heat, and if he dies it is from  heart  trouble;   when the editor gets  drunk its a case of too much  booze,  and if he  dies its  the jimjams,     Any  old college can make a eloctor; An editor has to be born.

James Cronin, of SpokaDe, didgreat  development work on his property, in.  the Babine mountains,   this summer-.  He has one of the best lead and silver-  properties  in   the   Hazelton   district,,  and it   gives  promise  of   developing  into one   of   the  best mines in   thafc  country.    To the south of Mr. Cromri's  properties is the Last'Chance group of  claims, owned by: W;P.O. Pemberton,  of Victoria, ;and P. J. Higgins.    This  is a lead and silver property,  and the  assays  have shown   up well  all along  the  vein.    These  assays  have run  as  follows. 117 ounces silver, 70 per cent,  lead.    Not a great deal of development  work  has  been done,  so it is hard.to  know how things  will look after it is  .  opened up.���������Rossland Miner.  Owing  to  the disruption   in   trade  throughout Europe, due to the present  war,    the   lead   mining   industry   of  Kootenay, B.C., was for a time threatened with serious injury.     The smelters had  stopped work,  and the mines  were on   the  point of closing down.  Hon.   W. T.   White,   Minister   of  Finance,  upon   being   acquainted   with  the circumstances,  took the matter in  hand, with the result that what promised  to be more or less  of a calamity  to  that portion  of British  Columbia  has, in a great measure, been averted.  Mr. White  urgently  appealed to   the  owners of the smelters  not to discontinue   operations,  and   to   provide   a  market for the output of the mines.  The Minister also  made arrangements  to the  effect that all lead   used in the  manufacture of war materials for the  Canaelian  army and.in   the   supplies  manufactured  in  Canada  under contract fronr the British War Office shall  be the  product of Canadian smelters.  This timely action by the 'Minister has  resulted in   providing an   immediate  market for' the output of the smelters,  which, in turn,   keep the   mines going  and   pi-event   the   serious   unemployment which otherwise would have resulted.���������Federal Press Bulletin.  -Astfftfti THK HEDLEYy GAZETTE NOV 19, 1911  She Ifcedle^ ������mtt&  and  Similkameen Advertiser.  1  .

This has been mainly  elue to his -shrewdness in politics: but  that one saving quality he seems to  have   lost.     If Turkey  plunges   into,  - this conflict at- the instance of Germany, it'is -her first disinterested act  on le-cord and it bids fair to be her  la*t. For Turkey in Europe it i* literally suicide.

Egypt appears to lie well content with  British rule and she has reason to be  so. In 1875 Egyptian affairs.--were at-  the lowest ebb. The country groaned  under a. hopeless bur-den of debt.  Credit, was.gone.;.--Rapacious tax gatherers robbed.the- wretched Fellaheen  of what little they had. The people  liveel in a state of chronic starvation,  amid ignorance, gloom and squalor  unspeakable. The entire system of  government was a riot of corruption,  cruelty, injustice anel'rapacity.  Then   came  European   intervention  and  the era of  prosperity  set in.    At  first France and England   worked conjointly; but since 1882 England has ael-  ministered  the affairs  of the country  alone.     The  history ot  those thirty-  two years,  filled with   the   labors   of  Cromer, Gorst and Kitchener is a tale  of  unbroken progress.     By eeoiiiomi-  ���������cal  aelministration   the el ebb has been  reduced:  likewise  the   taxes.     Great  public "works   have   been-carried  out  and   industry  so stimulated  that tlie  collective wealth of the country has  quintupled.     Vast irrigation schemes  have awakened the  grudging land to  smiling plenty.     The Fellah  is secure  in   his possessions for corruption  has  been swept from  the courts.     A few  apostles  of separation  there are,   for  the malcontent we have ever with us;  but the great  body of the people are  contented anel happy uneler the peace  and plenty of the British rule.

It can be sold  only to large firms Yet a motor truck  manufacturer is successfully Advertising  in daily papers. He realizes that he must  reach, not alone the managers of the concerns that require trucks, but also their  directors, their foremen, their head machinists, etc. It is found in actual practice  that this Advertising radiates in a thousand  directions, and again converges most astonishingly to influence the house that has  made up its mind that horse-trucking is  too costly and inefficient.  fl  m  m  n  I  m  m  n  m  m  i  i  m  ��������� /*��������� ������/>.%*/--���������  ;>Y  -U  Advice regarding your advertising : problems is available  through any recognized Canadian advertising agency, or the  Secretary of the Canadian Press Association, Room 503  Lumsden Bldg., Toronto.
