It appears that  she died from, exposure, having  wandered, out in the snow. She  was accompanied by a dog and  wore an overcoat. She evidently  took pity on the dog, as the animal  was found snugly bundled up iii  the coat, and the woman was discovered dead in the snow.

A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that the editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  Get in beforo the rush at Christmas.  Now is the timo to  train for the  new resolution stunt in January.  Do not hold that wad too closely.  It will fall out of your hand when  you are dead.  Let us have more of the parcel  post in Canada. The express companies have robbed us long enough.  The New Denver Record says  that "It is a wanton waste of good  whiskey to pour it into a man after  he is "under the table." It is,  and so many dying of thirst.  Is speaking of a temperance  hotel that he had recently stopped  at a drummer told the Slocan  Record that "There was a Bible  ancl dirty towels in each room, and  a blind pig in the attic."  tho wireless says that Father Dan  iu Silverton has just bought another stack of blue chips.  Thinking Themes  Osv: of the principal causes of  trouble with our neighbors is owing  to the fact, that few people grant  the same treatment that they expect themselves. The golden rule  is the best pilot to a rosy and blissful existence.  We have noticed that many  policemen in B. C, are nearly always willing to protect tho lawless  rumseller in preference to the in-  noceut citizen. Free drinks and a  dollar on the Bide are powerful  agents in this world of sin.  In Toronto not long ago an undertaker put the following ad in  jis window: "Why Walk Around  In Misery When We Will Bury  You For $18." If we could only  get bargains like that in the west  what a rushing business the undertakers would do!  There is no way to get the  values of the countryside so good  as walking. If you have a horse  he gets in between you and the  glory of the landscape, and if you  whiz along the road in an automobile you might as well, save for  the fresh air, be at a moving picture show. Only when you walk  do you get that personal, minute  and intimate acquaintance with  nature.  It is even so in our intellectual  life. When we think along with a  political party, a religious sect, a  literary cult or an artistic school,  we may be said to be travelling by  train through the land of ideas.  When we leave all groups and  creeds and plunge alone into life's  problems, see and determine things  for ourselves, and form our own  tastes and persuasions, we may be  said to walk.  There are times, perhaps most of  the time, when we must perforce  go by train; the affairs of society  and the state being too complex  for individual capacity. We must  possibly vote the party ticket, go  to church, join the literary crusade  and co-operate in this or that  group; but we should reserve the  right to go often upon an independ  ent ramble.  "There are men," writes Hamer-  ton, "whose whole art of living  consists in passing from one conventionalism to another, as a traveller changes his train. To them  intellectual independence is unintelligible. Why go afoot when you  may sit comfortably in' a train, a  rug around your lazy legs and your  head resting softly in a corner.���������  Dr. Frank Crane.  The municipal law needs some  fixing. By law the sitting of  Greenwood's court of revision has  to be advertised in a daily paper,  hence it is advertised in a Nelson  paper and not in a local journal.  This is about as farcial a law as we  have ever heard of, and must have  been framed in a lunatic asylum.  Tiiere is a debating society in  New Denver, and the leading  paper in that city says that the  next debate will be between Christmas and New Year's. It will probably be about plum puddings, and  should be hot stuff, as these old-  timers are well-known and full of  oratorical efforts, concealed and  otherwise.  Bank Act Amendment  Times are getting better in the  Slocan. Johnnie Harris is spending the winter in California; sweet  potatoes and cocoanuts have been  found in New Denver; another  barrel of boozerine has been rolled  up to Three Forks; and a tip from  An announcement of great im  poitance to western  farmers was  made by Hon. W. T. White in the  house this week when he delared  that when the Bank Act was introduced provision would be made to  allow banks to loan money on both  grain and live stock.   For several  years western agricultural organ  izations have been carrying on.an  agitation for these amendments to  the Act  and   the announcement  means   that the  government re  cognizes the justness of the western  plea.  At present Bection 88 of the  Bank Act authorizes a bank to lend  money to a purchaser or shipper of  or dealer in agricultural products  on the security of those products  no matter what the quantity may  be or where stored, but it does not  authorize the bank to lend money  to the farmers on his threshed grain  or his live stock. In other words  after grain or live stock reached a  wholesaler money could be secured  on it as a security, but uot beforo.  It is claimed that if a farmer is  allowed to secure loans in the fall  on his wheat, he will not need to  spend his' time "in marketing his  grain, and can devote his time to  fall plowing, a vital necessity to  western agriculturaliRts. With  farmers enabled to secure loans on  their grain their will bo no necessity for rushing their crops to market in order to meet pressing liabilities. There will bo encouragement to farmers to store their  grain, which will tend to prevent  the annual congestion.  Booze and Vice  Preaching in Vancouver Dr.  Spencer says:  Tho sins of .a. city: What men  do not tolerate for themselves thoy'  will permit for a city. Ancient  Nineveh, Sodom and Gomorrah,  Capernaum and other cities permitted sin to abound in the civil  life. Jesus wept over tho city of  Jerusalem and pronounced a terrible ending of its civil, life by  reason .of its sin. Scores of cities  might be cited to show that the  vengeance of God has been poured  but upon unrighteousness and evil  doings. Kings, councillors and  people have been permitted to go  their full length until the cup of  iniquity is full, and many are nonexistent today -because of the vice  which sapped the life of the city.   ���������  This always entails suffering on  the part of the people, but largely  through the fault of those in high  places. Men in civil positions can  not defy God in moral matters..  The laws may be weak, and always  will be as long as men only have  the making of them. The craze of  governments, and others interested  is to make the laws that will keep  them in power, and not always  laws which will protect the people,  especially the weak and tempted.  City after city might be quoted that  has degenerated from within and  from bad, internal government.  Influences that have no semblance of honesty are always abroad  and otherwise apparently decent  men flre caught in the meshes of  civil looseness in order to obtain  votes, get in,-and remain in. The  growth of Vancouver has brought  many problems to the fore for  authorities to solve. Imagine  forty liquor bars within a radius of  half a mile in the centre of the  city, bleeding, ruining and damning men week in and week out.  Think of the blighted lives, emptied  pockets, ruined families, disgraced  Bons and daughters caused by the  drink traffic. Eighty licensed hells  establish by law in our pity and  tolerated by thirty or forty thousand people attending churches and  chanting their hyprocrisy while  souls are being lost through liquor.  Then think of the vice area, the  twin of the bar. The latter could  not live without the former; they  live or die together. They are the  Siamese twins of pollution and corruption, graft and wickedness of  civilization that some goody-goody  people say must exist. The race  track gambling, and a host of other  evils in business extortion must  destroy the virtues of youth and  adults alike.  The city that tolerates vices of  these kind must eventually become  a doomed city. And can those  whose charge it is escape the. judgements of God upon such things or  upon those who tolerate them with  official lack of repression, if not  sanction?  ��������� No wonder at the people being  less amenable to that influence of  the Gospel and so many of them  speaking badly of church members.  I think their are a large number of  church people that are among the  best on earth. They are the salt  of the city. But let them raise  their voice againBfc civil evils and  you hear a howl that echoes all  over Canada.   Speak against the  vice and liquor ruin and you  "knock the city." Can not some  of the religious indifference be accounted for by the civic indifference prevalent?  A sewer turned on must do damage ��������� to the pure water, and the  Lord knows we have sewers enough  turned on, some by,, law, somo by  lust. Tt is to be hoped that next  year the voters of Vancouver will  elect men who will do things, moral  as well as material, Great good,  or groat ill, will bo ours by the  deeds ot tho next few years, and it  up to the moral people to work for  the civic good and not allow civic  sins to ruin ns. God did not forgive some cities, Nineveh especially. He can forgive ns the  wrongs we have", inflicted upon our  city by the twin evils of liquordom  and brotheldom, but our repentance must be shown by our works.  "Bring forth, therefore, fruits  meets for ropentance.''  Wo should provide for those we  have allowed to bo ruined. We  should punish tho man who steals  the virtues of a giil as much and  more than we would if he stole an  automobile. Do we? Alas, no,  we let the ^'Alexander street male  scoundrels go free and send the  females to prison. And amid these  troubles the attorney-general has  put his opinion above the law, and  refused that the sentence be carried out by the subordinates. His  day of reckoning is coming. The  bar of God bye and bye and the  bar of man in the near are yet to  come. It is a good thing to have  pity for the girls, and surely it is  the duty of the government to provide suitable accomodation for all  classes of criminals.  The law does not punish men to  our shame, and if Mr. Bowser's  pity for the woman sinner is real  let him ask the federal government  to amend the criminal code so as  to apply to men, owners of property, and those who aid the practices of immorality. He will then  show his sincerity. This should  not be left to the people to put up  money and time in getting the  public to demand redress The  people pay authorities for this  kind of thing, to make and amend  laws, and thus prevent civic and  national sinning against God and  man.  ofthe year, that every citizen can  help. to reduce the fire loss, and  build strong the basis of his own  prosperity.

A Non-Smoker  WATCH THE FIRE  Outside of the agricultural lands,  those under water, covered with  snow, or still unexplored, it is estimated that that there is in British Columbia an area of sixty-five  million acres capable of producing  merchantable timber. R. E. Benedict, chief of operation in the  forest branch, stated recently that  the amount of wood annually added to the standing forests through  the natural process of gaowth, is  100 feet per acre. Hence it would  appear that tii billion feet of timber is being added as interest to  the wood capita] every year.  Teis is an amount considerably  greater than that of all the lumber  cut in the Dominion in the year  1910.  Mr. Benedict places the value of  this growth roughly at $100,000,-  000 per annum, but benefits in excess of this amount will certainly  accrue. At the present time, when  only one-quarter of the annual  growth is being cut, the returns to  the community are over $28,000,-  000 a year. The circulation of  new wealth in the Province is the  factor which is playing a more important part than any other in developing this great Last West.  But there is one essential. Fire  must be kept from our forests. A  dry season and a little carelessness  might combine at any time to  sweep a great part of the greatest  of the Province's resources out of  existence.  The efforts of all the fire rangers  in the Province would be of no  avail if a really large fire got under way.   It is by care every day  Canada's High Commissioner,  Lord Strathcona, is still able to  get through a hard day's work,  though he has reached the age of  ninety-two. HiB prospects of. become a centenarian are excellent,  for his years sit very lightly upon  him.  Those who desire a long life will  be interested to learn the methods  adopted by this remarkable old  man for keeping well. Lord  Strathcona says: "I haven't smoked within the past seventy years,  and do not believe in Bmoking. I  certainly think that people eat too  much, and that it may be injurious  for them to do so. For many years  I have only had two meals a day-  breakfast and dinner. Doctors  will tell you that is- not enough,  but it has been enough for me.  I eat very little meat��������� practically  none���������and the diet agrees with me.  Exercise is decidedly a most important factor of good health and  longevity, but I have a great deal  of correspondence to go through,  and I cannot always find the time  for strolls and walks. As for sleep  I make a point of not Bleeping  longer than six hours a day.  WESTERN - - HOTELS.  NKWMAUKKT   HOTKI.

The  old practice of discharging industrial by-prodncts into the nearest  stream, is not only a disgusting  one, but it is exceedingly unprofitable as well. The modern manufacturer seeking for increased dividends looks about him for means  to use his waste material;  For example the refuse of the  oil refinery is converted into perfumes, flavouring extracts and  mineral oils. The slag of iron furnaces is utilized as ballaBt on railroads, or is converted into paving  stones, slag-brick or cement. The  by-product of the meat packing industry are so turned to account as  to actually pay for converting the  animals into food. The blood is  transformed into albumea for  bleaching, the offal into fertilizers,  the hoofs into glue, the horns into  buttons, knife-handles, etc., the  bones become ivory or gelatine, the  hair is made into, mattresses' and  felting, and the various fats into  butterine, olemargarine, etc. The  by-products from the coking of  coal may be transformed into gas  for power, ammonia for refrigeration, ammonium sulphate for fer-  bilizers, pitch for paving, roofing  and as a binder for coal briquettes,  carbolic acid, benzol, benzine, lubricating and other oils and aniline  dyea. Recently too, a European  forestry engineer has made the  boast that he can utilize every particle of the tree but the rustle of  the leaves.  More and more will the industry  of the future seek to prevent waste.  Competition demands it. Common sense demands it. ''Industrial wastes" must become an obsolete term.

He informed The Review  that the dredge would be located  below Strawberry Island, and the  bed of tho river prospected from  there. He is undi'r no illusions as  to the speculative nature of the  enterprise, but believes the chance  to be worth the necessary expenditure. ���������West-Yale Review.  Tho resumption of placer mining on the lower Fraser river has  been made tentatively several  times within the last few years,  with more or less success, particularly on the old bars between Hope  and Yale. This activity has consisted chiefly in repeating the process of the 'GO'S of trying to recover the fine gold brought down  by the river and deposited against  the bars.  What is proposed now by the  company for which a dredge is  being constructed at' New Westminster, is not a revival of this  primitive gold seeking, but an  attempt to recover values, if there  be any, from the gravel of the  river bed.  Mr. Mcintosh, the company's  local representative, who was in  Hope early in the week, has bad  charge of similar operations on the  Yukon  and is familiar with the  cs:  J. H. McDonald, the well-known  mining man, of  this city  has just  returned from the Salmon river and  Metaline   districts,   where   he is  largely   interested.    In    speaking  about conditions in that portion of  the Kootenays,   he says that the  surveyors on   the   Metalino-Trail  are now camped at tho mouth of  the Salmon river,  having just re-,  turned   from    Salmo   and ��������� Sheep  creek, where .they have been running lines for  tho  railway.    They  will now continue the survey down  the Peud d'Oreillo river to Waneta,  crossing the Columbia river at that  point   and coming   up  the same  river  on   the  west sido  to Trail.  They expect to complete  tho survey to Trail by February 1st, J 913.  A hydro-electric  power  plant is  t;o bo put in on  the Salmon river,  about a mile from its mouth.    Tho  plant when completed, will furnish  2,500 horse power,   which  will be  utilized principally  by  the  Sheep  creek mines  and  the towns,along  tho   Nelson   and   Fort   Sheppard  railway.    It   is  the   intention   to  push work duriuglho winter, while  tho water is very   low.    Tho company is now waiting  for  tho provincial    government   lo  issue its  license grant, under  which  it will  proceed.    As about 1,500,000 feet  of lumber will be used by tho company in the erection  of its flume,  power plant and buildings,   it will  put in a sawmill  alongside of the  power site and saw the lumber for  the purposes mentioned.    The company is said to bo a strong ono and  has the money on hand with which  to erect the proposed plant.  The provincial government engineers, who have been making an  estimate of the water power in the  Pend d'Oreille river, from its  mouth at Waneba to the International boundary line, have about  finished the task and are now engaged in stretching a steel cable  across the river at twelve mile  point.  Mr. McDonald has refused an  offer of $100,000 made by American  capitalists, for the Rio Tinto group  of silver lead claims, situate on the  British Columbia side of international boundary line. It is Mr.  McDonald's intention to not dispose of the group until the railway  is constructed through tho district.  The railway will pass directly thru  the property. Thousands of tons  of high-grade silver-lead ore is exposed on the surface of the Rio  Tinto group. - Rossland Miner.  MANUFACTURING JEWELER  Nelson,   B.' C.

F^EENDEEsL-L  James Clark who has been operating a saw mill in the Atlin district tells the Daily Alaskan that  thero are going to bo a lot of people in thero in the spring as a result of the new strikes made this  season, particularly on O'Donnell  river, which Mr. Clark says, in  western phraseology, "is a good  bet.'' For a long timo the work  on this river has been in the bed,  but during tho summer prospecting  extended to the benches and it is  there, that the rich strikes have  been made. On a bench thirty feet  above the river oue man took out  over S600 in gold with a few days  panning. Since the knowledge of  the new strike leaked out there has  been several'hundred claims staked  and about twenty leases taken.  Mr, Clark believes that O'Donnell and other contiguous creeks  will produce their millions and  that the new strikes near Teslin  lake is in line for wonderful production also.  MICKEY SMITH DEAD  Purity in food, lower cost of living���������  these are the demands of the day.  Pure food is health, and health is economy  itself. We cannot have health without healthful food.  The most healthful foods are the quickly  raised flour foods ��������� biscuit, cake, muffins,  crusts and other pastry, when perfectly made  from wholesome ingredients.  Dr. PRICE'S baking powder makes these  foods in specially attractive, appetizing and  wholesome form, and for both economic and  hygienic reasons, such food should be more  largely substituted for meat in the daily diet.  But bear in mind that alum, or  unwholesome baking powder,  can never make pure, wholesome food.  It will interest many of the older residents of Rossland to learn  that an important find of ore has  been made in the Dundee mine,  near Ymir, 500 feet below the old  workings. A. E. Rand and associates of Vancouver, who took over  the mine, have spent a lot of time  and money on the property. Thoy  have located the ore in paying  quantities.  The late Charles Dundee   was  the chief owner of the,Dundee, and  so valuable was it considered to be  in   1S9S  that Dabney &  Parker,  mining brokers, of Rossland, who  represented an English syndicate,  offered Mr. Dundee $220,000 for it.  The money was deposited in the  Bank of Montreal here,  and for  over a month  Messrs. Dabney &  Parker endeavored to induce Mr.  Dundepi to accept tho price offorod.  Ho refused, as he considered the  property was worth more. Through  various misfortunes he finally lost  control of tho mine, and in  tho  end got only a thousand or two  for his interest in   it.���������Rossland  Miner.

STABBING AFFRAY  Narcis.se Martin, his son, and  step-son, Johnnie Oppfiiheimer,  all half breeds from Toroda Creek  drove into Greenwood on Monday.  Thoy filled up on whiskey while  here, and on their way home  Johnnie stabbed Narcisse three  times in tho neck and shoulders,  and attempted to knife the other  breed, but he escaped by jumping  out of tho wagon and taking to tho  woods. The old man fell out, or  was pitched out of tho wagon and  Johnnie drove pell-mell towards his  home across the line. Then the  son and father walked to Archie  1  Mill's store at Ferry and Dr. Mac-  Lean was summonsed from Greenwood. Upon his arrival the doctor  found Martin almost dead from  loss of blood, and took him to the  Greenwood hospital where ho now  lies in a precarious condition. The  wounded man refused to  where he got the whiskey.  tired, one of the two men who  accually went down in the vortex  when the Titanic sank last April,  and who ascribed his escape from  death to a miracle, died in his  apartment in the hotel St. Louis.  Though his death is credited to a  complication of diseases, his physicians and his wife and daughter,  who were with him when he died,  believe that ColaDel Graeie's death  resulted from the effects of the  Titanic disaster. Durijjg his brief  illness, Colonel Gracie talked continually about the sinking of the  Titanic, recalling the tremendous  battle he had for life when he was  gripped in the swirling waters of  the foundering steamer; and last  night, while delirious, he called  out repeatedly, .according to his  daughter: "Wo nave to get them  all into the boats.

Or Does Everything You Eat  Distress You?  Experts declare that the reason  stomach disorders are so common In  this country, is due to hasty and  careless habits of eating. Stomach  troubles and run-down conditions also  usually go together.  John Lind, of Oneonta, N. Y., says:  "I have been troubled -with a bad  stomach trouble for fifteen years, .and  became so weak that I could hardly  walk or do any work. My appetite  was very poor, and it seemed impossible to get any relief. Since taking  two bottles of Vinol I find that it has  already made a remarkable improvement in my health; my digestion is  much stronger, and I have gained in  weight."  Vinol makes "weak stomachs strong  because it strengthens and tones up  the weakened, tired and overtaxed  nerves of the digestive organs. Vinol  is easily assimilated by the weakest  stomachs, and is delicious to the taste.  Try a bottle of Vinol with tho  understanding that your money will  be returned  if it does not help you.
