Office  on North   Main   Street  .The examination of the Golden Zone  property which was being' nnide by  C. II. Poirier, M. E., on behalf of  Brown was completed on Friday night  last and on Saturday they all came  down.  Delay in getting the mine unwatered was caused by lack of capacity of  the only available pump at the mine,  to handle the water.. The large Cameron pump which was part of the  Golden Zone equipment was put out  of commission at the time of the first  shutdown, as some water had been left  in it and this being allowed to freeze,  burst some of the castings. This time  the snowfall and a chinook which set  in increased.' thefiow of surface".water  into the workings in addition to the  regular underground flow,, but the  pump loaned them the beginning of  last week by the Hedley Gold Alining  Co. soon did the work.  The mine was carefully sampled  both in- the under-ground ' workings  and along surface trenches, and these  samples were taken out for testing.  The story they will tell when assayed  will of course-have an all important  bearing on the general result It is  well known, however, that the examination was not undertaken in any  hostile way by either Air. Poirier or  his principal, for both were more or  less favorably taken with lirst appearances and Air. Brown likes Hedley and  the district.  It is true the affairs of the Golden  Zone have been in more or less confusion, for some time past and the  claims against it which would have to  be satisfied will aggregate a sum large  enough to require the property to  stand up to a pretty hard examination,  but there is every reason to believe  that Mr. Brown will take hold and  give the mine a chance if the report-  he receives from Air. Poirier is at all  favorable; and if he does do so and  follows Air. Poirier's directions, the  Golden Zone will get a fair chance for  once in its life to make good.  BAYONETS AND BALLS  FOR ULSTER  That is Treatment Asquith Has for Most  Loyal Portion of Empire  An important declaration has been  made by Premier Asquith in his'speech  atLadybank where he reiterated the  intention of the Government to establish the parliament ,-itDublin provided  for in the Irish Home Rule Bill. His  only reference to the resistance of  Ulster was that the Government would  not be intimidated into abandonment  of its purpose by threats of resistance  from Ulster and that Ireland would be  ruled by an Irish parliament if the  armed forces of the Empire would  have to be used to give effect to the  enactments of parliament.  The proposal of a separate parliament for Ulster did not meet bus views  on the ground that it would tend to  prevent unity in Ireland. His opinion  as to what the nationalists would or  would not do to the minority in Ulster-  may be taken for what.it is worth.  While he had armed force with bullets and. bayonets for Ulster if they  would not agree to the dose he had  prepared for- them there was no promise of any restraint to be upon the  nationalists whenever they saw fit to  use their- power to trample on the  rights of the people of Ulster.

WINKLER,     Proprietor,  irav&rjtKn*&WMKrM*&KKKiW.V!.*M  The price, received for- an article depends much on the manner in which  it is presented for sale. This has become especially true in regard to food  products whether offered in. the natural or manufactured state. Fruitgrowers have recognized this change in  public taste and have, during recent  years, greatly improved their methods  of putting up fresh products. Reputable apple growers no longer think of  marketing ;their- products in second  hand barrels or boxes, or- those that  are soiled or- clumsily made. It is regarded important not only that the  packages suggest contents of fine qualj  ity, but that when opened the fruit  shall present an undamaged and otherwise attractive appearance.  The packing of fruit in barrels and  boxes involves a few general principles  easily mastered in the case of barrel  packing but more difficult when box  packing is concerned. In the opinion  of Air. Alex AIcNeil, Chief of the Fruit  Division at Ottawa, it is not too much  to expect that a season's practice will  make a fair box packer, working on  right principles. To teach just how  the packing of apples and pears in barrels and boxes should be done Air. Afc-  Neil has prepared an illustrated  pamphlet on the subject which is  designated Bulletin No 31 of the Dairy  and Cold Storage Commissioner's  Series. In his letter of transmission,  Air. J. A. Roddick, the Dairy and Cold  Storage Commissioner, points out that  this work contains a large amount of  new material setting forth the" more  recent developments in fruit-packing.  The book constitutes an exhaustive  treatise of sixty-seven pages, showing  many helpful illustrations. It is published for free distribution to all who  apply for it to the Publications branch  of the Department of Agriculture at  Ottawa.  Apropos the small-pox danger which  threatens the valley since the malady  broke out in Oroville some months ago,  the Gazette has been given the following precautionary treatment which  has been employed by a doctor on the  prairies who had to do with several  small-pox outbreak--.. The remedy to  ward off infection is as follows : "Dissolve four ounces of cream of tartar- in  a pint of boiling water. Take a wine  glass of the solution before retiring  and again in the. morning before  breakfast." The reason why the comparatively small quantity is specified  is that the liquid may be fresh and retain its strength until it is all used,  a^id when done a fresh solution maybe prepared. This with regular use of  the bath, plenty of fresh air, exercise,  moderate eating of .wholesome victuals, and proper thinking, will leave  little fear of contagion. Of course it  goes without saying that clean premises and vaccination are at all times  the sheet anchor- in times of threatened small-pox outbreak.  The following summary of Biitish  Columbia's advantages appearing in  the Monetary Time������ will make pleasant reading. This coming from a  publication which is recognized as  Canada's , great financial paper should  prove verv satisfactory indeed for all  those who have cast in their lot here.  The Alonetary Times says :  British Columbia's coal-measures  are sufficient to supply the world for  centuries; it possesses the greatest'  compact area of merchantable timber-  in North America; the mines have produced over $-100,000,000, and may be  said to be only in the early stages of  development; the fisheries produce an  average annual value of over Jf>l0,000,-  000, and, apart from salmon fishing,  their importance is only beginning to  be realized: tho immense deposits of  magnetic and' hematite iron of the  finest quality, which remain undeveloped : the agricultural and fruit  lands produced approximately $21,-  000,000 in 1012. and less than one-tenth  of the available land is settled upon,  much less cultivated: .British Columbia has millions of acres of pulp-wood  linexploited: petroleum deposits, but  recently discovered. Bestowed hy  nature with all these essentials, British  Columbia is "designed to occupy a significant position in the world's commerce  and industry.  LOCAL NEWS  Rev. G.  appointee-  Anglican  Princeton  THANKSGIVING SERVICE  EXIT MR. MONROE  Latin America Chafes  Under Sammy's  Benign Tuitelage  ���������     ^  The glut in the potato market last  year produced the customary effect  of such an occurrence. A smaller-  acreage was planted this year- in consequence and high-priced spuds is not  an unlikely thing this year. In the  Fraser valley a marked rise in the  price has already been experienced.  St. Louis, Oct 24.���������The "graceful  abandonment" of the Alonroe Doctrine by the United States was advocated by Homer- Clyde Stunz, resident bishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the, Alethodist-Episcopal  Church, in an address before the City  Club here today. Bishop Clyde is  here to attend the annual fall meeting of the Methodist bishops.  He declared the famous doctrine  was promulgated to fit conditions in  1823 when the United States for-  colonization and on "benevolent principles," in lino with this country's  policy of exercising a commercial  and financial protectorate over the  Latin-American countries.  A fitting mark of observing December 2, .1023, as tire one hundreth  anniversary of the life of the Alonroe.  Doctrine principles, he said, would be  to announce a slight recession from  the strict, decree it laid down to foreign nation.  The Thanksgiving service held in  the church on Sunday evening last  brought out a congregation which  would have twice filled the old structure before the changes were made  last summer. "While Rev. A. H. Cameron conducted the service he was assisted by Rev. G.D. Griffiths, Anglican, of Princeton, and thus it was run  "a double header" which loyalty, to  the memory' of Father Pat demands  that we. credit the term to him. The  special music prepared for the occasion marked also the fact that it was  to be the last Sunday which Air. and  Airs. Farr would spend in Hedley, and  this circumstance was referred to by  Air. Cameron in expressing his appreciation of the work of Air. and Airs.  Farr- in improving the service of song.  The .church was tastefully decorated  with grain, fruits, flowers, minerals  and other produce of the valley, which  had been gathered by the boys of the  Sunday School. The organ selections  by Air. Fair, the selections by the  choir* and the excellent solo by Miss  Daly in which she even excelled her  own splendid singing, combined with  the effortsof the clergymen officiating,  to make the entire service one of the  most enjoyable ever* held in the place.  D. Griffiths the  to the charges in  and Hedley. held his first Hedley service on Sunday last in the morning  and at eleven o'Jock.' The evening  service was cancelled owing to the  special Thanksgiving service being  held in the church, which Air. Griffiths  attended and was invited by Rev. A.  H. Cameron to take part, which he  did. This courtesy on his part is appreciated and is taken to indicate ;t  relaxation of exehisivene.-s which is so  commonlychaiged againgst Anglicans  The Reverend gentleman made a good  hnpYession on this his first visit to  Hedley.       ''.'.���������  It begins to look as if mankind are  becoming a bit decadent when it comes  to common every day work, even if  they are able* to beat old-time records  iu the way of athletics. Last year  about this time when there -was some  wood to saw and men who were laid  off at the Golden Zone and could not  get their money but were running  board bills at the hotels, were offered  the job they would not tackle the  bucksaw for the stipenil-of two dollars'  per cord to put a couple of cuts in a  cord wood stick. To-day these same  board-bills are still unliquidated, and  the wood which another man sawed  and made money at. is all burned up.  The other day again a couple of chaps  who were out of work were given a  similar layout, but they baulked  against manipulating the bucksaw except on a so much per diem bargain,  which was less than has been made by  some other men who have done the  sawing on the layout which those  fellows turned down.

He says:  "The town has had only four cases,  the last of which has been under  quarantine for 30 days so cannot  possibly any new cases dovelope now".

It seems^  that the road accout  for  this  district  is kept  in  the  Bank   of   Commerce.  Penticton, and the  cbeqeus issued  on  that branch, but when  presented  by  the-roadmen atbranches of that bank  in this valley the exchange is saddled  on   the  holder of  the   cheque.     The  Bank of B. N, A. in Hedley had  been  paying the cheques to the holders all  summer-  without  any   deduction   as  they took the intent of the Bank  Act  ���������which directs that Banks are  to  cash  government cheque free of charge, to  apply-to  the.'p;iper  of any government in   Canada whether federal  or-  provincial, although   the  wording   of  the clause which states  "Government  of Canada" is certainly capable of the  more   restricted   interpretation.    Bub  if the bank which  has   the benefit of'"  the   provincial    government's     road  account for the district is going tolrog;  the  exchange   on   its   own    cheques  to the holders instead of paying in full.  It leaves good ground  for. a kick on  the part of the road men.  New score cards are now obtainable  by members of the Golf Club and  the  handicap committee would  appreciate  having members use them and turn in-  their cards   duly   countersigned    by  their opponents.     Only in  this  way-  can the club handicaps  be justly allotted: and the new cards are made to  show how the handicaps are to be used  on the Hedley course.    The cards also  set forth   tire local  ground rules  with  which it is essential that all members  should make themselves familiar.  The  general rules of the game and the etiquette of golf are to be found in the St.  Andrews rule books given to members  at    the    beginning    of     the    season.  Etiquette    as   aplied  to   gulf   has a  more de-fignate significance tlian what  is the usual  acceptation  of the  word  and it is as essential for smooth orderly playing of the game and the safety  of players as the rules themselves. The  old score cards now in   the  possession  of the secretary are  supplied  free of  charge to members  who  want  them.  For the new  cards a charge  will  be  made   sufficient   to   bear  their  cost.  With   the   financial   obligations    the  club have entered  into  in  connection  with the grounds it becomes necessary  to economize with the club funds.  The Duke and Duchess of Con-  naught and Princess Patricia returned  to Canada last week to complete their  vice-regal term in this country. They  were met at Quebec by Premier Borden and other members of the government and given a hearty if less demonstrated welcome.

To temporize and trifle with  a. situation so manifestly serious is  little short of.criminal.  The twelve days period of incubation  will be awaited with no small amount  of anxiety to sec whether any further  cases develop and it may be possible  and it may pass as favorably as hoped.  While there have been no exposuri-s  of any residing in Hedley with ���������iffeet-'  cd parties there have been with others  who were directly exposed, anel there-  is still the modicum of security in the  assurance that there is no direct  evidence 'that the disease is contagious during the incubation period.  The latest from the Provincial  Health Department, however, is that  Dr. Aliller had left Victoria with a  supply of fresh vaccine, and would be-  in the. valley as soon as possible to take  charge of the situation and relieve the  local doctors.  So far as publicity is concerned it is  much better to give the outside! public  a plain unvarnished .statement of the  facts as they are than to leave them  dependent upon wild rumor.  . In the days when vaccination was  from arm to arm there was some  reasonable ground for objection on  the ground of septic infection, but  now when the vaccine supply is so  carefully guarded and bovine virus exclusively used, the whims of the few  should not he allowed to endanger the  lives of the many.  THE BANK OF  VACCINATION  THE SMALL-POX SITUATION  The reference made by our Keremeos correspondent to laxity on the  part of the officials in connection  with the existence of small-pox in the  valley shows the general disapproval  with the drift policv pursued by the  Provincial Board of Health. We  know there is a certain unwritten law  which impels local publishers to make  as little reference as possible to the  existence- of contagious .diseases in  their midst but the Gazetse does not  agree with that attitude and does not  consider it in the interests of the  general public.  It  is quite  true,  as   our correspondent   has  said,   that   there   has   been  small-pox in the  valley just across the  line  in Washington  state since early  in June and that the Provincial Board  of Health   were duly   notified of that  fact.      The   V. V. .&-. E.   trains   have  been 'running  into  British  Columbia  from    Oroville   where   the   sniall-pox  existed  and the passengers  who came  in on   them.had  lain  over in   Oroville  for the   night, but  nothing  was  done  and the trains wera  nut even watched  at the   boundary line   for   small-pox  suspects. The Health officers iu Washington   state (if  there   be any)   have  been   equally remiss, or at all events  they  have not  been able   to keep  the  disease from spreading and as a result  tke  cases in   Oroville  have increased,  Loom is   is  reported   to  have   twenty  cases and almost every little hamlet in  the northern part of the state has one  or more.    Now  it has   reached  Keremeos where   there are three  cases and  before  the  thing  was  detected  these  had opportunity to  expose to danger  of infection   the   greater   number of  people,  in the  place.    Not only   were  the    Provincial    Health   Department  written   to about the  matter and supply of vaccine requested but were telegraphed repeatedly,  but the only sign  of life  or interest  they manifested  in  in the situation was to send a niggardly dole of  vaccine points  that did not  arrive in   Hedley until   two days after  the  date    beyond   which   they   were  marked   to be ineffective.     The detection of the  disease in Keremeos a. day  or two after- the affected parties had  attended  public gatherings for which  they were in no way to blame for attending,  revealed  the   seriousness of  the situation, and the wires were kept  hot for a while  trying to awake  the  dead in the Provincial Health Department.     One of the telegrams  asked  It is one hundred and twenty-five  years since Edward Jenner gave to  the medical profession the results of  his experiments of what is now  known as vaccination, and although  the theories advanced by Jenner have  been tested millions of times since,  aiid proved with a dcgiee of finality  that renders the limited proofs of the  first experimenter infinitesiinally  sniall in comparison, there are still  some who affect to disbelieve in it,  and hope to air their vanity by  breathing defiance to constituted  authority which in the public interest would require I hem to submit to  vaccination. Elbert Hubbard, tlie  prince^' of grandstand performers,  appeals to be bell-wether of the anti-  vaccination cult, and in every community there tire a few lesser- lights  who can be counted on to sneeze as  often as snuff is sniffed by Fra Elbc-r-  tus.  The standard objection urged by  these objectors is that of septic  infection, and doubtless many cases  could be truthfully cited where some  trouble from that source has been  caused, but they are so exceedingly rare and are in most cases due  to bad care that it is-absurd to deny  to children and others the protection  afforded by vaccination which has  reduced the death rate from smallpox cases so enormously. In Loudon  before vaccination was practised the  death rate from small-pox was 40()0 in  a'million and is now 20. in Sweden  the death rate from small-pox has  fallen from 2049 in a million to 1; in  Germany from 4000 in a million to 2.  The experience of every other civilized country possessing statistical  records is equally conclusive, but it is  unnecessary to quote them.  In British Columbia our legislators  unfortunately capitulated weakly to  the inane clamor and silly conceit of  the wee bunch of Hubbard imitatois  and inserted in the Public Health Act  an exemption clause that does homage  to that peculiar thing "the nonconformist conscience" although we use  the term here in a slightly dilferent  sense from that which restricts it to  matters of religion.  In Germany they do things better  and there is no monkeying on the  ground of conscience in the matter of  vaccination and revaccination, with  the result that they have almost completely stamped out the disease of  small-pox in that country since the  compulsory vaccination law of 1874  was put in operation and rigidly adhered to ever since. There they make  vaccination as general and as strict as  we do in the matter- of registr-ation.  With them every child must bo vaccinated in its first year- and again between the llth and 13th year.  Hon. Alurtin Burrell, Minister of  Agriculture, is taking part iu the  South Bruce byo-eleclion. He spoke  at Mildinay which is in the township  of Carrick and that is'the leading German municipality in the riding. It is  there the Liberals are appealing to  racial feeling and prejudices and asking the German electors to vote against  the Borden government on the ground  that Borden is in-favor of Canada contributing ships to fight Germany. Air.  Burrell took occasion to point out the  despicable character of such tactics,  and while doing so, did not forget to  show up Sir Wilfrid Laurier in his  true, light in connection with his use  of, I he word "tribute" ������������������isapplied to the  proposed Canadian contribution. ' Today the polling in South Bruce takes  place, and almost every Liberal ex-  Alinster is in the riding and claiming  that they are going to win. Should  they manage to do so it will be the  very worst lliing that could happen  them, for the constituency carried by  the Liberals by means eif such appeals  would be worth a lot to Air. Borden in  the next, general election, as it would  swing many an Ontario riding against  Sir Wilfrid that otherwise he might  manage to win.  77 Years in Business.

Others associate  the words  with The  Mutual  Life Assurance  Company of  Canada, and with reason, for  It is  the only  Mutual Life Insurance Company incorporated  in the  Doniinion.  It solicits only Canadian business.*  It invests only in Canadian Securities, and  It lias paid to Canadian families,*  often in times of direst need $12,800-  000 since its foundation in 1870.

Hugh   Hunter   government   agent,  was. iu 'town' on  Monday on -official  business.  A  supply of films  will   be on  hand  "this.week and shows  will   be given  -on   Friday and  Saturday   nights   as  usual.  J. It. Brown, Govercinent agent, of  Fairview and Dr. R. B. White of  Penticton came over on Tuesday to  investigate the health situation.  The Princeton Basket-ball Club are  giving a dance there on Friday night  for the benefit of tho club funds.  They invite their friends from other  parts of the valley.  'JScenejin Union Depot" to-night.  Those who know promise that it will  be pronounced one of the best shows  ever given in Hedley. The hour is set  for 8 o'clock.  W. A.   McLean  brought down   his  horses   last   week   from   the   langes  ��������� above Princeton to be in readiness fertile commencement of work  on   the  Hedley Gold Mining Company's da_m.  Mrs. E." M.  Daly, Miss Daly, Miss  "' 'Corrigan and Geo.   Allison spent the  -     week end in Hedley.    The  latter* still  has a cranky patient in the  wounded  foot which  continues   to   give   him  trouble.  - A hitch in , the shipping arrangements on the part of the film supply  house resulted in the cancellation of  the usual weekly shows. Many who  were unaware of the cancellation wont  to the, hall on Friday night only to  find the place in darkness.  The store up at the mine was moved  last week to the new. location down  near- the portal of No. A tunnel and  the old town-of Nickel Plate is now  practically abandoned, for the new  site more convenient to the present  deeper workings. ������������������<:���������*  Mr. Wood, formely time-keeper and  .s.tor-e-keeper- at the mine 'resigned  the  position'  a   few . weeks ago'and his  ' successor  Mr.   Owen  Dickenson   who  hails from Vancouver arrived on  Saturday to take his  place.- Mr. Dicken  son-entered on his duties  on  Monday.  F. H. French   went to Fairview  on  Tuesday on business and when  there  he ran the car over to Bride-sville and  met ..Mrs. Horswill  and children  who  were  coining back from Nelson, thus  saving them   the risk   of   remaining  over for the night  in Oroville.    They  returned to Hedley yesterday.  W. J. Manery was up from his ranch  in the lower Similkameen last week  witlra load of apples that weiewell  calculated to uphold the reputation  of the Similkameen for producing high  class fruit. The load comprised the  Snow, Spitzenberg, Jonathan, Newtown Pippin and Bellflowei* varieties.  H. B. Brown came up from Vancouver last week and is making preparation to remove there. He had charge  . of the mineral exhibit during the Vancouver exhibition and is strongly im ���������  pressed with the necessity for- using  every possible, means to give the  widest publicity to the mineral resources of the province.  R. D. McDougall who was working  on the crusher on Monday evening  tried to dislodge a piece of r-ock which  had got between the fly-wheel and the  side castings, and the iron hook with  which he was trying to disledge it,  caught in the wheel and was thrown  against his body. It laid him out and  he had to be taken to the hospital.  A chap named Frank 'Tunney who  worked at the Nickel Plate was foolish  enough to buy a bottle of whiskey for  an Ashnola Indian named Pierre  Michel with the idea that Pierre was a  halfbreed. The little indiscretion cost  him $50 and trimmings and the Indian  was fined $5.00 for- having intoxicants  in his possession. Both fined were  minimum awards as they were first  offences in each case.  The post office and telephone is now  opened at 8 o'clock in the morning  instead of 9 o'clock as formerly. This  will be appreciated, especially by telephone suscribers who are in their  places of business at 7 o'clock or shortly after and who found it impaired to ���������  Tim-Griffin came up from - Oroville  on Saturday where'lie has been working on.the Owasco property for sever-'  al weeks, but they have shutdown  until a cyanide plant is installed. Tliey  have a good joke geiing of which Tim  is the central figure. Some are telling  that when Tim saw so ninny yellow  emblems of small-pox exhibited in the  windows lie concluded that that pait  of the valley was getting too Orange  for him and he decided to pull out.  Mr. E. V, De La tour of the Municipal Construction Co. of Vancouver  was in town on Tuesday to look  after any work in that line in connection with the power to he developed  on the Similkameen River, but he  found on coming in that the plans had  been changed and the simpler flume  construction will be employed. The  firm representee! by Mr. De-Latoiir  have completed ��������� many pipe lines for  municip'ilities . and corporations  through the province.  G. P. Jones returned from Victoria  on Friday last where arrangements  wer-e satisfactorily made with the  Water Branch of Lands Department  foi developing power- on the Similka-'  meen ori a. site altogether different from  any applied for- before. Itaims to use the  water lower- down than that for any  others formerly staked and while it  may cost more for installation than  the one they had formerly figured on  and for which the permission of the  Indian had been obtained for right-of-  way, it suits them better.  A. Winkler has demonstrated the  fact that even peaches may be grown  up at his ranch high lip on the hills  'above Hedley. He recently brought  into the Gazette office some ripe medium-sized peaches that had not been  watered during the season and received little or-no care. Almost all other-  kinds of fruits that are common to the  valley have been tried and with success. If all the. available_ spots of  ground on the hills around that have  been thought useless were put in crops  a lot of produce could be raised to supply local demands that litis now to be  shipped in.  Mr.   Mitchell,    a   skilful   hydraulic  engineer of the firm of Conovan and  Mitchell,  came in   on   Monday from  Victoria in   the employ of the Hedley  Gold Mining Co.,'   his mission being to  perfect plans for  the development of  power-  on the  Similkameen river and  prepare plans for the same.     While it  is premature to attempt to outline the  plan which  is likely to be followed, it  is  nevertheless  given out that it will  consist of a dam   a   little  below   the  mouth   of Twenty-mile  with  a. large  flume  extending down   the  river for  some  two  or  three   miles to a power  station  where electric energy will be  developed at a voltage of  GG00   and  transmitted   back  to the works  over  wires.    Mr. 3IitchelI and his assistants  are busy  this week  on the  river and  camps  are  being got ready  to  begin  work in   putting in the dam,   which it  is their intention   to   have completed  this winter so that no delay in the in-  stallation   can   be caused by the  high  water of,next spring.

H. C. N. Etches of Keremeos is the  latest recruit to the Hedley Golf Club,  his name having been handed in by  Rev. A. H. Cameron. Membership so  late in the season and from an outsider- who can only obtain limited use  of the course at best, is appreciated by  local members who do not always  find all who are disposed to use the  course, so considerate.

Mrs. Jack Thomas after spending  the last five weeks in'the Hedley hospital with an attack of typhoid fever  got back to Keremeos again on Sat-  day rather feeble but feeling much  better, thanks to kind attention she  said she received at the hands of the  nurses. We were all pleased to see  Mrs. Thomas amongst us again and  trust after a little careful attention  she will regain her full strength again.  The idea of letting a thing go until  it smashes seems to be prevalent in  more things other than machines,  bridges or buildings. This time it is  health that.is.to suffer. Nearly three  months ago sinall-pox was known to  exist at Oroville. This was reported  to the authorities. Nothing was done  to prevent it from, getting a star-tin  this vallev. Three weeks ago the cases  in Oroville had increased and Loornis  had quite a number- of cases. These  were reported again and still nothing  doing. The first case gets in the district; then everybody is up against it.  Up to the present we are pleased to  say there are only three cases, two  very light and the third just commenced, so that, although we are thankful  to say up to the present it has not  proved very, serious, it does not cover  up the fact that there is laxity in look  ing after the matter.
