No mutter what-hurry they may  display elsewhere in the building of  new railways there, is some tiling about  the work between here' and the (.-oust  which seems to paralyze the efforts of  all the companies.  The announcement was .made a  month ago or more, that all the. bids  were, in for a section of 42 miles beyond (Joalmont on the V. V.

For a while it was believed that the  Kettle. Valley would have the effect -of  ^purring them up and especially so  when the latter road seemed to be  making fairly good progress with  their work both in the Okanagan and  over on the AVest Fork, of Kettle  liver. Now, however, it appears that  the engineering staff around Princeton have been called off and the West  Yale Review says:  "The work of the Kettle Valley  Railway .Company in Hope district,  between now and next spring will be  confined to the final surveying of the  line down the Coquihalla.

PENTICTON, British Columbia.  evening, summoned George Stanfieid,  of the Provincial Police, to the neighborhood of Spion Kop, where he discovered a certain interdict fighting,  and otherwise making himself obnoxious to the inhabitants of that suburb.  The sequel or sequels was seen the  following day in the police court when  the unruly one appeared before Justice  of the Peace, Wm. Delahny, who  levied a "fine of twenty dollars and  costs.  The end, however, was not yet. for  the offender was further charged with  being drunk, his name being on the  list of those to whom is barred the  taste of whisky. Under the new clause  in the Liquor Law Amendment Act,  the magistrate exercised his extended  powers and on the prisoner refusing  to divulge the name of the friend who  supplied him with the forbidden product, inflicted an additional of twenty  plunks. This is the first application  of the new law in Phoenix.���������Phoenix  Pioneer.  The Sirnilkameoii rStar- has the following ������������������reference to the death of .Mrs.  Louis Mareotte: V  "On the'morn'jng 'of the 12th. inst.,  the wife of Louis JV. Mareotte, of  Coalinont, died at ^he home of her  parents, Mr/ ahtlf Mjs. C. Sellisler. at  Princeton. The deceased young lady  was well known, hjiving spent her  school days' here, ami later was identified with the social life of the town.  Many friends and relatives will mourn  the departure of the^young wife, -married about a year, who gave so much  promise of a sphere' pf usefulness and  happy home life. Death followed con-  fin.eiuout .rfanj[LA\Vi-^7S^ldeiv and . unexpected.- The whole community syni-  pathize with the bereaved husband  and relatives."  The funeral was held on Saturday  afternoon on the return of Mr. Schiss-  ler, father of the deceased, who was  absent at the time. The attendance  was very large and mam* floral offerings from Princeton. Hedley, Coalinont and other points attested the  esteem in which deceased was held.  A copy of the Birmingham News is  to hand  from which  we take  the following paragraphs omitting a column  or more  made no of names  of guests  and   wedding   presents.     The.   paragraphs  reproduced here   will  interest  many in Hedley.  The News society reporter says:  "Seldom   has greater   interest been  manifested  in   a  local wedding than  was the case  on Tuesday, when at All  Saints', Kings Heath. Miss Nora Johnson, second  daughter of Dr. and Mrs.  C J. B.  Johnson,   Rocl'inount. Kings  Heath,   was  married   to  Mr.  Harold  Austin  Hincks. fourth son of Dr. and  Mrs. T.S. Hawkesford Hincks, of Hay,  Herefordshire. The parish church was  filled to its utmost capacity, while outside   an   equally  large   concourse   of  people  waited  to witness  the arrival  and  departure of the bride,   who has  been most popular in the parish.    Formally  years past Miss Nora Johnson  has taken a very active part in church  ���������work���������as a Sunday school teacher, as  cnief distrihuCoi of^the'Plti-is^Mrtga-*  zine.  also as  a leading spirit in the  Girls*  Friendly Society, and a district  visitor.

He was  a very prominent figure in the early  days of the settlement and served the  community in many public capacities,  being the first clerk of the municipality of Spalluinclieen, which elected its  first council  about twenty years ago.  The sincere thanks of myself and  the parents of my deceased wife are  extended the many friends at Hedley  who so tenderly gave of their sympathy, expressed in words and deeds,  in our-i-ecent bereavement.

"The bride  who was given away by  her father, was charmingly attired in  ivory cloth,   the lace   corsage   being  draped with! ninon.     She wore a large  white tegal hat .trimmed with ostrich  plumes;  carried a bouquet composed  of  white roses, carnations,   etc., arid  wore a   diamond    and   aqua   marine  brooch,   both  the gifts of the bridegroom.   Miss Millicent .Johnson, sister  of  the  bride,   as bridesmaid,  wore a  dress of white and pink  ninon,  and  pink *hat.    Her bouquet  was of pink  carnations,  and she also wore a gold  bracelet watch, the  gift of  the bridegroom.     Dr. A. Cecil Hincks. brother  of   the   bridegroom,   was   best   man.  The hymn "Lead us   Heavenly Father  lead  us" was  sung as  the  bride and  bridegroom walked up the aisle, while  at  the  end  of the service   the  hymn  was   "-0    Perfect    Love,    all    human  thought    transcending",  and   as   the  couple left  the altar to sign the register in the  vestry the Wedding March  was played.  ������������������A pretty scene was enacted after  lire service, Sunday school children  scattering flowers on the churchyard  path for the bride to walk upon. Dr.  and Mrs. Johnson held a largely attended reception at Rockniount, a.  marquee having been erected in the  garden for the accommodation of the  guests. The bride and bridegroom had  an enthusiastic sond-olf as they departed for their honeymoon, which is  being spent in that famous Irish  beauty spot. Killarney. The bride  travelled in a suit of blue cloth, with  white hat trimmed with blue. At the  end of the honeymoon the bride and  bridegroom will sail for British Columbia, for their future home in Victoria, where Mr. Harold Hincks has  resided for the past nine years.  Canadian marksmen lost the match  for the Palma trophy in a very close  match, the score being 1720 for the  Americans and .1712 for the Canadians.  General Nogi and his wife both committed suicide to show their intense  regard for the late Euiporer and chose  the funeral as the occasion for the  crazy act.  Statistics from Ottawa indicate that  the cost of living showed a slight decrease for the month of August. This  is the first instance in which this had  occurred for some time.  The British poet Watson is out with  a strong poem in behalf of Ulster and  the foul treatment it would be to force  home rule on her. The logic of the  poem is much better than the poetry.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier in a speech at  Montreal hints at his possible early  retirement and as he continues to advocate reciprocity it is evident that litis not counting on winning any more  political contests for his party in  Canada.  Penticton and Kelowna are agitating for a road on the cast side of  Okanagan lake between these two  points and serving intermediate settlements, At present there is no communication except by the road on iIn-  west side and the ferry at Kelowna.  All ('. P. H. telegraphers from St.  John, N. 13. to Victoria. B. C. threatened' to'go on strike on Sunday last  unless an increase in pay of If) per  cent, was granted them. This did not  include those on commercial work but  merely in the despatch of trains and  business of the railwav.  All Penticton is on the tiptoe of excitement for the coming visit of the  Duke of Connaught next month.  German chemists have discovered a  method of making ammonia synthetically. The hydrogen will be obtained  from water and the nitrogen from the  litmospheio and they were put together under pressure at a temperature  of 000 degrees centigrade. It will mean  cheaper fertilizers for agriculturists.  A Globe reported has misreported  Premier McBride. The bum steer-  perpetrated by the Toronto paper  makes British Columbia's premier to  say that, he was in accord with Lanrier's naval policy and also that he took  no stock in there being any Gei-m-m  menace. Sir Richard utterly repudiates both.

Indian agent  A TIMELY  WARNING  AN AGE OF PROGRESS  The fallacy that the world is all the  time, getting worse instead of better  has long been too. popular in many  quarters arid many who lend a hand  in propagating it do so out of sheer-  thoughtlessness without taking the  trouble to look about them for genuine  evidence. Ir.i some tilings there have,  at times been periods of retrogression,  but on   the whole, mankind  is  better   and    stronger    physically,     mentally,  and   morally   than  ever    before,   aud  bodily    disease   is   more   successfully  combatted.      Much of   this is due  to a  more   rational   view of   life and   of its  ends, and it is this more rational view  which   is pointing  men to   the simple  life,   for  wherever man   has  departed  from it    temporary retrogression   has  been   the  penalty.     It has   been  said  that when our forefathers  forsook life  in the open air and, to protect themselves   from   the   inclemency   of   the  weather, constructed shelter for themselves, the foundations   of   two  great  sciences   were   laid.    These   two were  architecture    and   medicine,   for   the  open   air life   which   he   then   forsook  has   remained   in   all    ages   Nature's  great cure all.      When the pure air of  outdoors  was shut out. disease  began  to work   its ravages  upon the   huma.n  body  and the necessity for the science  of  medicine  forced  itself upon   mankind.    Spurred   on   by   that necessity  he has   blundered into a knowledge of  himself and of his physical and mental  needs  until   to-day he  can point  to a  degree   of perfection   in almost,  every  line,   which should   make any   sensible  man ashamed of   himself who will try  to  argue   that   the   world is   growing  worse instead of better.    The past ten  or   twenty  years   has   witnessed   the  greatest  advance of all.     Look at the  reports we  get from   our commissions  ���������on conversation:  see the literature we  have   on    how   to   eat   and    how   to  breathe, and when we know those two  simple   things   we   know   the   whole  secret  of keeping  oiuselves   in bodily  health,   and it all points to the simple  life.    "There is no royal road to learning" is an   old truism handed down to  us   through   hoary ages    and   yet   it  is a   truism that   is  only   half a  truth  for our educational systems have been  so improved and made   more rational  that  the   kiddies   of to-day   can  get  with half  the labor the things   which  we had   to toil to learn.     Rationalism  has worked its way into the warp and  woof of our daily life  until   business  and  all is   permeated  with it  and we  1   The  Toronto   Board  of Trade    are  taking a wise course in trying to head  off the real estate   boom   (hat is again  setting in   at Toronto.      It,was   in the  late   eighties   and   beginning    of   the  nineties that the former boom   was at  its height   which left ruin   in its   path  and thousands were bitten before the  real   import   of  the' gigantic   bubble  dawned   upon   the   people.      It   took  Toronto many years  to recover-  from  that wild financial spree,   and  so thoroughly epidemic   had that  mad   craze  for speculation  in  land  become  that  staid solid men   like Sir Oliver Mowat  who was then almost in the zenith  of  j his [lower was partially drawn into Unwind and found himself at the end of  it     in   possession    of   parcels of real  estate   the values of which had shrunk  to a mere ghost of their former  proportions.    Now it begins   to look  as if  all    the     market      gardens     around  Toronto  and for miles out   are again  being pegged out as city lots  and sold  to the unsuspecting, and the Board of  Trade ha.ve issued   a.   warning   to   the  people of Ontario'to  buy  no  lots  in  new subdivisions  without thoroughly-  investigating to see that the property  is  as it is represented.       While  Vancouver may not have gone it nearly so  wild   as   in   the case   of  the  Toronto  boom   there were nevertheless subdivisions    sold   ms    citv lots   that had  ("*ealed Tenders address to the undersigned,  ,J and endorsed -Tender for the Construction of a.

The suggestion to class British militant suffragettes.as undesirables and  exclude them from Canada is a good  one. Canada, is a law abiding country  and if the people of Great Britain see  fit to put up with a. public nuisance  such as these people have made themselves it is their own affair but we  don't want any of it in Canada. We  have our work to'attend to over here  and our laws arc meant to give us an ]  opportunity to do so. That, is why we  insist on having our laws obeyed and  not made a mock of by brazen hussies  who have nothing else to do. and whose  craving for excitement has unsexed  them.

Several ha.ve been out trying their  hand at deer,hunting since the se.-u-.on  opened but'nevertheless venison is  still scai ce.  Messrs. Stevens and Turner, the  new blacksmith and machinist have  each taken houses and are moving  their families into town.  Miss Ei'iston will 'receive for the first  on  Thursday,'  September   2lith  and every  time  from  four  to six  o'clock:  ; .third Thursday thereafter.  Mrs. G. B.

P. .Jones how  takes his airing in an auto Avhich lie,  obtained at ;i bargain and the machine shop has put in -running order.  M. Mackenzie, of tho Bank of ,B. N.  A. staff, went to Oroville on Saturday  to spend the week end aiid incidentally to attend to some private, business.  Mrs. J. R. Edmonds returned from  Calgary on Friday where,she and her  husband 'had gone for-the stanipede.  J. 11. will return a, little, later with a  bunch of cattle.  L. W. Shatford M.P.P. is expected  in some titiio during the coming week.  He has been in Vancouver during the  summer since he'returned fr-qru a trip  to Halifax in .Tune.  The Great Northern train service  between here and the coast appears to"  have been somewhat out of joint during the past ten days.; Twice in that  'time no Vancouver dailies got through.  The new headgear at the central  station on the gravity tram is working smoothly and the; lessened strain  is easily discernible. In all probability  these repairs will be found to be much  more permanent than those required'  from time to time under the old'ar-  r-mgeinent.  The rumor in reference vto 'Jack  Raitor which was noted in last week's  issue appears to have been ill-founded,  as latest word from him says he was  in Rochester, Minn., and he makes no  mention of his case being as serious as  the manufacturer of the yarn appears  to have made it.  The date of Thanksgiving Day has  nob yet been officially proclaimed lint  '"rit i.s<expected that it will take^place-on-  ";-Monday, October 21st. The last occasion upon which a royal viceroy issued  his first proclamation as Governor-  General of Canada was in 1S78 when  the date. Was delayed until the waning  days of November owing to the late  arrival that year of the Marquis of  Lome arrd Princess Louise to enter on  their.official duties.  A more flagrant instance of giving  liquor to a drunken .man than that of  supplying booze, to the'nian Turner  who had tbe snakes here this week,  could nob easily be found. If the'government want to cub off any licences  in Medley all they have to do is to find  out who gavci the liquor in this case.  It is reasonable to infer that the licence-holder who supplied or allowed  -this'liquor to be supplied to this man  is nob very particular'.whether hi-has j  a. licence or not and consequently could  not be expected to object very sbren-  .uously if it were taken, away from  him.  Hedley golfers are praying for rain  to help to undo some,of the misery  produced by the recent team work on  the course. Had the scraping been  clone (in the race track to fill up the.  holes and hoof inarks made during the  wet weather of Labor Day-it would  have done some good. As it is anvoiie  who drives a ball on to the race track  in playing the third hole is out of luck,  for a dropped ball is not likely to have  any better lie than it had before dropping. Scraping has been tried so  often and in almost every case found  wanting so far as disposal of the weeds  is concerned, and surely., we can have  mowing or something else tried for  ph.ee.      .      .. '<>.-..  Property holders on Kingston' Avenue have been 'trying hard to shame  the. authorities into removal' of the  Chinese wall of gravel and boulders  left when the hank was tunnelled  through to form the street grade, but  judging from tbe length of time, it has  heen left there it will take a heap of  shaming to effect the reform. A funny  thing about it too was that at the  time it was being left there, material  was being loaded on wagons and hauled greater distances to make 'fills'for  which the Chinese wall could have  been used to apparently better advantage but the rule to lnake all roadways the specified width of 12 feet  had to be adhered to .no''matter hovv  beastly the effect produced. The  Chinese wall has already been good  for  three summers and according  to  it will require  to erode  it all  the tenets of geology  a few centuries longer-  down.  Mr.  Martin Burrell, Minister of  Agriculture, has takerr to the game of  golf and has had the satisfaction of  drubbing Premier Borden, Hon. W.T.  White and Mr. Perley and is looking  for other notabilities to conquer  preparabory to taking on President  Taft. When the Minister next comes  to his constituency he must not.neglect to take in Hedley nor forget to  bring bis clubs along.  The spell of fine weather following  the web period of the fortnight around  Labor Day is proving acceptable, in a  great many quarters. On Sidley mountain the ranchers -are having'an opportunity to finish up their later harvest, and it is coming in very handy  for the Hedley Gold Mining Co. in  carrying on their diamond drill work  outside in prospecting under their  Windfall bond even if it is a bit hard  on the water supply to have along  dry spoil at this time of the year.  On Thursday last .Air. Brookes' party  coining down from the Golden Zone  met with an accident about eight  miles out and all had to walk in. There  were in the rig Mr. and Mrs. Brookes,  Mr. and Mis. Crpuhna.ii and Frank  Dollemore. The circle over the front  axle which the box turns on broke and  allowed the front part of the rig to  drop on the ground and the horses to  get clear. Had the thing occurred a.  little further back the consequences  might have been more serious. Asjb  ' was the walk in was considered strenuous enough.  On Saturday last little Wesley Messenger and young Sox Simons who  are very horsy in their notions and  spend most of their play hours riding  old horses were away most of the day.  Towards evening the Messenger hoy  came home with a nasty gash in his  face and in a semi-dazed condition and  could give no account of what had  happened him. ft was thought he had  fallen off in some way, but it wa.s  found out later that the horse had  kicked him. Several stitches were  required to get the wound in shape.  At his Sunday evening's service Rev.  A. H. Cameron  departed a little from  the usual routine by giving a synopsis  of a letter which he had addressed to  the,. Christian Endeavor; Soc._of ''the  Presbyterian   church in* Giielpn, Out-  It is-aruleof the Presbyterian church  in   Canada   in   connection   with   the  western  missions of the church to interest the young people of the church  in  the eastern  provinces to  the work  in the  western fields, and  to tha tend  every young people's   society   which  contributes   $250.00 annually   to   the  support of western missions is entitled  to a letter from the western field from  one of the missionaries,     To Rev. Mr.  Cameron  has fallen  the duty of sup-  plyiug   such letter for  the  Christian  Endeavor Society of Guelph, Ontario,  and very few of those eastern societies  have been more fortunate in their correspondent than the one to which Mr.  Cameron's letters have been going, for  the last 34 years of his ministry have  been   spent on   the western   mission  fields and his experiences therein have  been most interesting and varied. The  Gazette has requested Mr. Cameron to  allow  the  letter to  be reproduced in  these columns, but he prefers to have  the  permission come from the young j  people  of Guelph  whose  property it  now is.     It is possible  that their permission may  be obtained and if so we  will be pleased to reproduce it in these  columns at some future time.  ~xr:  fmm-  iVs������-\  KEEP YOUR EYES ON  DLEY  WATCH IT GROW  It is destined, to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

One lot especially  needs  mention is the one owned  hy W. IT.   Honeywell.      It is hardly a  year since    Mi-.   Honeywell came   in  from  .South   Dakota   being   followed  .some  two   months  later-  hy  his wife  and daughter, Violet.    They bought a  ten acre lot next to V. Sorgo and since  that time  got down to business.    The  lot wa.s  practically all  brush but they  just waded   right in and   today we see  (piite a small  orchard planted and doing  well.      Much   credit  is due   Mr,  Honeywell for he has  shown by sheer  pluck  and good  judgment  what can  be done inside the first year on a fruit  lot even when it- is covered with brush.  .Seven hundred   trees were  planted by  hi in this veai-.
