The basket-social in aid of the  school on Rock Creek flat comes  off to-night, and an air of -deepest  mystery pervades the female portion of our population regarding  the size, shape, etc., of their baskets. So well have their secrets  been kept-that we ourselves have  only seen about sixteen of them.  Perhaps the dear things know that  we are broke.

An announcement of some  porfcance was made yesterday afternoon by officials of the Dining and  Sleeping Car  Department   of the  Canadian    Pacific   Railway.      A  short time ago there was opened by  the C.P.R. at Winnipeg a building  for the use of employees of this  department while on  thefvarious  runs through Winnipeg.    The object of the company was to provide  accomodation    for   its  employees  coming on or off its trains.   Under  old conditions employees on traius  running through Winnipeg had to  seek board and lodging at hotels or  private houses.    This   was  somewhat   difficult for the employees  who arrived at variousi\hours and  whose stay was short in tbe city.  The erection of the new building  by the C.P.R. changed this state of  affairs as the employees went to  the C.P.R. building when off duty,  and there found the very  best ac-  commodatioiT'at a~ very'lowrate.'  BeiEg an innovation on American  railways this new step in   welfare  work has been closely watched' by  the   railway" world.      Since   the'  scheme has turned out.to be a  big'  success it was yesterday stated by  the C.P.R. officials that- the work .  would be extended.   According to  information given out yesterday it  is the intention of the railway to  erect similar buildings to that at  Winnipeg at all important points  from coast to coast;    These buildings will not be all erected at once,  but it is intended to eventually extend the scheme to effect the whole  system.    This will be a big expenditure of money but the C.P.R.   believes that as a result,   its service  to the public will be rendered even  more efficient than it is at present.  There are more benefits to be do-  rived from the innovation than the  mere providing of good  accomodation.    In the first place, it insures  that cases of especial necessity the  railway will be able to secure crews  for its trains on short notice and  in the second placo, since sanitary  rules areinforced it ensures that;  the public shall always have clean  tidy sober men to wait on them.-  Tho building erected by the C.  P.R. at Winnipeg is a two storied  ono built something like an ordinary private house,   having a verandah, garden and lawn.    Inside  thero are reading rooms, smooking  rooms,   billiard rooms,   etc,,   and  thero are also shower and plunge   .  baths.   The house is in charge of a  competent    manager    and   from  statements mado by tho employees  it is gathered that they are more  than satisfied with the new arrangement.  Prosperity hides from a slip-shod  man.  Do your best; even that is none  too good.  Admit that you are in the wrong  when proven to bo.  If a man fears death it is almost  a confession that ho isn't living  right.

When the talented children have  firisked out their little day, when  those who can  fiddle   and   sing,  dance and joke, mimic and speechify and otherwise entertain  their  fellows, have all joked and jigged  themselves down the by-ways  of  poverty  (into    forgotten    graves,  the imposing ignoramus will still  flourish  like a tree planted by the  rivers of water; his leaf also shall  not whither,  and   whatsoever he  doeth   shall   prosper.    "Did   you  read   Brooks'  Fool  of   Quality?"  Mr.   Wesley    asked   one   of   his  preachers.     ''Yes."     "Did   you-  laugh?"    "No."    "Did you cry?"  "Why, no."    "O,   earth, earth!"  exclaimed   Westley.���������Dr.    Frank  Crane.  In the courts of the United States  justice has largely become a farce.  The people over the.line are imbued  with the idea that money should  win everything.  The pen may be mightier than  the slapstick, but only when it is  pushed by His Nibs, bays a wise  man [in the east. The pen like  the sword is of little use unless yon  know how to handle it. Perhaps  this applies to nearly everything  else.  Thinking Themes  Wit has been defined as the ait  of   getting   one's   self    disliked.  Those young persons who hope to  get along in  the world wonld do  well to eschew it.    The  Ancient  and   Honorable  Order of Dough  Heads, which rules the  world, resents humor, because, knowing itself to be ridiculous, it is in constant fear that some one may laugh  at it.   It has  been  said that no  man with a sense of humor ever  long  maintained the public confidence    of    England.   In    any  country wit is suscidal to   bank  presidents, chief of police, paBtors  of Jchnrches   and   presidents  of  things.   We   admire   brightness,  but we put our solemn trust only  in dullness.   The American people  never elected but one humorist to  tho presidency���������Lincoln.   It was  a   bold   deed.    Thoy never have n-napm:   done such a bold thing before, and j    "Br'er rabb't was a great runner  Cherokee Indian Story  Among the Cherokee Indians  the following story of the rabbit  and the tar wolf used often to be  told:���������  "Once there was such a long  season of dry weather that no more  water remained in the creeks and  springs and the animals held a  council to see what could be done.  They decided to dig a well, and all  agreed to help except the rabbit,  who was a lazy fellow and said:  " 'I don't need to die for water.  The dew on the grass is enough  for me.'  "The animals were not pleased  with the rabbit's remark, but they  set to work to dig the well. They  noticed that the rabbit kept slick  and lively, although it was still  dry weather and the water was becoming low in the well.  "The other  animals   suspected  that the tricky rabbit was stealing  the water at night, and they made  a wolf of pine gum and tar and  placed it by the well to  frighten  the thief.   That night the rabbit  came, as he had been coming every  night, to drink enough to last him  all the next day.    When he saw  the queer black thing by the well,-  he inquired:���������  " 'Who's there?'  "But there was no reply.   The  rabbit came nearer,  but the wolf  didn't move,  so he grew braver  and said:���������  "  'Get out of my way or I'll  kick you.'  "Still there was no reply.   Thon  the rabbit kicked with   his hind  foot so hard that it was caught in  the gum and he could not move,  and there he stuck until the animals came for water in the morning.    When they  discovered the  thief they had great  sport  over  him for awhile and then prepared  to kill him.   But as soon as the  rabbit was released from the tar  woif he managed to escape."  The Cherokees also tell this  Btory about the rabbit and the  terrapin:���������  and everybody knew it. The terrapin was a slow traveller,'as everybody also knew, but he was a great  warrior and unblushingly boasted  of it. The terrapin also had a gift  of cunning in no small measure;  and as the rabbit was always playing tricks on the other animals.  Mr. Terrapin concocted a practical  joke with which he proceeded to  victimize the old joker.  "The terrapin challenged the  rabbit to a foot race. The day  was fixed, the starting place agreed  upon. They were to run across  four mountain ridges, and tho one  that came out first at the end was  to be the winner of the race.  "Br'er Rabbit said to himself  that it would be a shame to take  anything so easy, so, he said to  the terrapin: 'You can't run, and  everybody knows it. I'll give you  the first ridge and then you'll have  only three to cross while I'll cross  over four.'  "To this the terrapin assented  [ and went home to arrange for the  race. He sent for his terrapin  friends and frankly told them that  he knew that he could not outrun  the rabbit, but he wanted to stop  his boasting. He then explained  his plan to them and they agreed  to help him.  "The day came and the animals  were all ont to see the race. The  rabbit took his station at the starting point, and the terrapin went  ahead, as they had arranged, and  they could hardly see him on account of the tall ��������� grass. When  the word was given the rabbit  started out with long jumps up the  mountain, expecting to win the  race before the terrapin could get  down the other side of it. Before  he got up the moundain he saw the  terrapin go over the ridge ahead of  him.  "He ran on, and when he reached the tc p he looked all around,  but could not see the terrapin on  account of the tall grass. Br'er  Rabbit kept on down the mountain  and began to climb the second  ridge, but when he looked up again  there was the terrapin just going  over the top. This was surprising  and Br'er Rabbit began to take  longer jumps to catch np but when  he got to the top there was the  terrapin away in the front over the  third ridge.  "The rabbit was -now getting  tired and nearly out of breath, but  he kept on down the mountain and  up the other ridge until he got to  the top just in time to see Mr.  Terrapin cross the fourth ridge,  and thus win the race.  "Br'er Rabbit could not make  another jump, but fell over on the  ground crying, 'mi, mi, mi, mi,' as  the rabbit has done ever since when  he is too tired to run any more.  The race was given to the terrapin,  though all the animals wondered  how he managed it. But he kept  still and never told.  "It was easy enough,  however,  because all the terrapin's friends  looked   just   alike,   and   he   had  simply posted one near the top of  each ridge to wait until the rabbit  came in pight, and then climb over  and hide in the long grass.    When  the rabbit came on he could not  find the terrapin was ahead, and if  he had met one of the other terrapins ho would have thought it was  the same one because they look so  much alike."  the latter the western terminus of  the proposed Canadian Highway.  Alberni was last week visited by  a travelling representative of the  Canadian Highway Association,  who found every business man in  that town in hearty sympathy with  the objects of the association.  Nanaimo and Victoria have also  been canvassed and each city has  added1 considerably to the strength  of the membership of this body.  W.'W. Foster, Deputy Minister  of Public Works, in a letter to W.  J. Kerr, president of the association, outlines the following route  as the most practicable for the construction -of British Columbia's  portion of the Canadian' Highway:  Alberni to Victoria, via Nanaimo;  Vancouver, Westminister, Hope,  Princeton, Rossland, thence to  Trail, crossing the Columbia by  the new bridge now in course of  erection, and via Summit Creek,  along the old Dewnoy Trail to  Creston, thence following the main  trunk road into Alberta.  While this route cannot bo con-  siderd final until all the reports  from the surveyors and engineers  have been submitted to the Department of Public Works, it is not  likely that any important deviation  will be made.  !    By his reference in his speech  from the throne at the opening of  the House of Commons on November 16, His   Royal Highness the  Duke of Connaught put the stamp  of Royal approval on the plan to  construct a Canadian Highway that  will stretch  from coist to coast.  His intimation   that   the- Federal  and Provincial Government would  work hand and hand with a view  to   improving   the   highways   of  Canada has already been of great  assistance to the men who are taking an active part in the work of  the Canadian Highway Association  showing as it does that it  only  needs proper representation to the  authorities  in order to secure at  once the   commencement   of  this  great national enterprise.  age plants in Canada show that  over four-fifths of the total  value  of cooperage produced in Canada  during 1910 was composed of slack  cooperage.   The total value of the  slack cooperage stock was $1,395,-  545 and was made up as follows:  104,821,000   slack    staves   worth  $736,960; 9,860,000 sets of   slack  heading work  $330,480; and 38,-  244,000 hoops worth $328,105.   In  the manufacture of slack staves in  1910, fourteen kinds of wood  were  used, for one of which, elm, a production of over sixty million staves  was  reported,   and   from   six   of  which  (beech,   cottonwood, hemlock, pine, oak and cedar)  a total  of less than two million was reported.    Although the proportion  of four-fifths of the total formed by  elm and spruce is the same as in  1909,  spruce is slowly becoming  more important as a  stave wood.  Over two  million more pieces of  spruce were produced in 1910 and  five million elm staves less than in  1909.    Every species of wood used  in stave production except cotton-  wood and cedar was used  in the  production  of  heading,   as   short  lengths and pieces not suitable for  staves can be readily used for this  purpose.    The percentage  of the  heading manufactured   from each  of the heading species was:   Bass-  wood,  37.7 per cent.; poplar 19.3  per cent.; spruce 14.7 percent, and  elm  10.7  per cent.    Elm   is  the  principal  hoopwood,   contributing  in 1910 over four-fifths of the total.  Over   a   million    hoops   each   of  spruce and poplar were produced,  and with elm form nine-tenths of  the   hoops    manufactured.    More  elm is used in Canada for the manufacture of slack barrels than  for  lumber.  H. W. Farmer'& Co.,  RJ3AI- ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B. C.

C* '  Don't Be HOODWINKED  WE NEVER CHANGE BRANDS  rt  HI  ARE A I QUALITY  Slack Cooperage  The production of slack cooperage is a much greater industry in  Canada than tight cooperage,  which is due to the shortage of  Canada's hardwood lumber supply  and to the fact that there is very  little timber now growing in Canada  of sufficiently fine qualty to make  barrels for the containing of oils  and liquors. The Forestry Branch  of the Department of the Interor  states that reports from 133 cooper-  Tight Cooperage  Tight cooperage barrels are used  in the shipping of wines,  whisky,  beer,  ale,  oils and other liquids,  and the stock  used  is  required to  be clear and of a species which  will  not   impart its   resinous   or  other taint to the contents.    For  these reasons oak, preferably white,  is the principle wood used by the  trade, and as these species cannot  be  obtained in  Canada; the large  shippers import it either as staves  or in  the  log,   from the United  States.    In    the    latter  country,  however, gum  and basswood  are  rapidly taking the place of oak in  sawed tight cooperage, so that in a  short time a change may be looked  for in the woods used  in Canada.

TOMKINS  Manager  ion Forestry   Branch   at   Ottawa  show that the tight cooperage industry   in   Canada   during- 1910  amounted in value to three hundred and forty-five thousand dollars.    Nearly    four-fifths of    the  total value was composed of staves,'  while heading to the value of $72,-  000 made up  the ballance.    The  stave production was as follows:  7,127,000    sawed  . staves   worth  $195,7������8;   923,000   ale and beer  worth $44,814; and 319,000 bucked  and split    worth    $72,240.    Oak  formed nearly three-quarters of the  sawed staves, all the ale and beer  staves, and  all the   bucked  and  split.    Gum, a species of wood not  hitherto   reported,   which   should  prove itself very satisfactory on account of its durability and freedom  from  flavor,  stands third   in the  sawed stave table.   In ono year,  with    a   production    of   437,000  staves it surpassed all the native  species except spruce.    To fill the  demand for tight cooperage in Canada,  imports   as reported by the  Department of Trade   and  Commerce were as follows  for  1910:  7,220,000,   oak   staves valued   at  82Q0.672; stave  bolts to the value  of 881,888 and 93,311  empty  barrels worth $112,126.

Because   there are  large areas of land in the north on  which there is timber of some kind,  the conclusion is reached that it is  all of present value and   that the  country has an unlimited supply.  As a matter of fact a careful inspection of the timber along the  line of the Hudson Bay  Eailway  made in the years 1910 and 1911,  by the Forestry   Branch   of   the  Department of the Interior, shows  that there is not enough  mature  timber along the line of that railway to build the road.    There are  no prairie districts of any. extent  along   the route,   there  are trees  everywhere, but owing to repeated  fires the forest is,   except on the  merest fraction  of the area,  too  small for commercial purposes and  less it can be protected from   fire  until it reaches maturity, will never  be of any use to the country.    Explorations in   other parts of the  northern forested districts  tell the  same tale.   Everywhere   fire   has  worked havoc, and the forest is a  mere wreck of what it might have  been- if fires could be prevented.  And unless adequate measures are  taken now to protect the young  and immature forests which form  the major part of the stand,   the  outlook for the future is none  too  good.  If the northern forests are to  continue to be a permanent source  of wealth to the country, it is absolutely necessary that the fire  ranging system should be extended  and that proper methods of management of the forest should be  applied, and public education to  the value of the forest is even more  necessary.  In Sweden, which has large extents of northern forest, practically  uninhabited, similar to those in  northern Canada, has about eliminated the fire danger in such districts mainly    by   educating   her  (30 days)....." js.oo.

Bobbie Stevenson and  partner, two of the owners of the  claims, are expected in Merritt tonight.���������Merritt Herald.  Messrs, AVinchester, Ohampiain  Deny and Hudson, mining men,  were iu town last week end from  the Eastern States to inspect the  Pacific Coast property aud to decide on the future policy of the  company. A 14 foot seam GOO  feet long has been proyon and now  the intention is to secure a central  position in the coal deposits and  erect permanent buildingg.  Tt was decided to have considerable drilling done before spring  on the Blair and Deny coal holdings. "We are satisfied" stated  one of the parties interested "with  the results as far as we have gone.  No question about our having a  permanent equipment. We have  enough tunnelling."  It is a well known fact that the  Pacific Coast Colliery company has  one of the best properties in the  district. It is merely a question  of time when the properties will be  permanent producing mines-  The beauties of our district were  commented upon by our American  visitors, who expressed themselves  as being agreeably surprised at the  fine weather prevailing here at  this time of the year, which greatly  added to the pleasure of their trip,  having left a white east and expecting to discover the west in the  same state.  Messrs Hudson and Champlain  were very surprised at the rapid  growth and large size of Merritt  considering its youth.  Saturday and Sunday saw the  departure of the potentates for the  east declaring themselves as we-1  satisfied with the prospects here.���������  Merritt Herald.  HOW WEAK WOMEN  May Be Made Strong at Small  Expense and No Risk  There are hundreds of women in  this vicinity, weak, thin, run-down,  tired out and nervous. Such women  need Vinol just as much as did Mrs.  Jane Pepper, of 2307 Howard street,  San Francisco, Cal., who says:  "I have used Vinol for some time  with particularly gratifying results. I  was run down, weak and debilitated,  and my appetite was gone. After taking soveral bottles of Vinol I found  my condition greatly improved, and  do not hesitate to recommend "Vinol  to  anyone  similarly  affected."  Vinol is not a secret nostrum, but  a delicious cod liver and iron tonic  without oil, which will create an appetite, tone up the digestive organs,  make pure blood and create strength.  Try a bottle of Vinol with the understanding that your money will be  returned if it does not'help you.  JolinL; White, Dru^ist, Crccnwood ,13 .C.

He  draped himself against one bar,  and, after taking eight drinks, remarked to nobody in particular and  everybody, ingeneral:  "I can lick anbody in Memphis."  As nobody paid any .attention to  the remark, he went down the  street, leaned against another bar,  and took eight more drink*-*, after  which he said, in an offhand manner:  "I can lick anybody in this  country."  Again there was no repose, and  tlie warrior proceeded to his third  saloon, where he bought and absorbed another eight chinks. By  this time he was full of ideas and  loose conversation, and soveral bystanders were listening to his remarks.  Finally he went farther than  ever before, and issued this challenge:  "I can lick any man in the State  of Tennessee!"  A little fellow,  thin and oma-  nciated looking, stepped out of tho  crowd, hit the big man on the jaw  and proceeded to give him-a thorough  beating.   After the dust of  battle had cleared  away tho big  follow staggered to his feet, leaned  weakly against the bar,  and said,  with an absurd air of deliberation:  "I guess I kivered a little too  much territory in that last remark  of mine."

LILLIAN MASSEY TREBLE  A Life of Consecration to Humanity.  .��������� ���������wLMgi3.ItIunt'8 beniitiful P������e,m, "Abou Bon Adhem," where the angel wrote  jn the tablet the names of the world's great ones, because Abou Ben Adhem loved  Ins fellow-men, his name led all the rest. On the tablet of the world's remembrance  surely high place belongs to those who have consecrated their lives to the betterment of humanity; who were great not for what they possessed but for what they  gave, not for what they absorbed but for what they radiated, not for what they  became but for what they helped others to become.  Among the Canadian women who have made philanthropy a living, vital  atmosphere of helpfulness rather than a mere theory of living, the name of Lillian  Massey Treble deserves high praise. Born in 1854, in Newcastle, Ont., the only  daughter of the late Hart A. Massey of Toronto, who was tho inspiration and impetus to some of the Dominion's most important industries and institutions, from  her earliest moments sho has lived in the atmosphere of wealth. Her fine mind  was givctv additional strengthening, and refining under tho best instructors, and  later vo. that best of schools���������foreign travel���������where observation is the teacher,  and the many now cities and countries but new school-rooms. The heiress of ereat  estates, she consecrated- herself and her wealth to tho good of tho world.  Her earliest work in the Fred Victor Mission in one of Toronto's neglected quarters, soon convinced her that tho primary source of good or evil in most instances  is the home; that the greatest good to humanity must come from preventing evils,  not from curing them, and from building up higher ideals of life and living? The  first step in this work of regeneration was in the organization of domestic science  classes in connection with the missions. Then cametho demand for a higher grado  of teaohors, alivo to their duties and their privileges; this led to the founding of tho  Lillian Massey School of Household Science and Art. In this institution the practical work of training women for the home, so that they may make home better  for themselves and others, is the supreme aim of all the teaching. The education  ���������literary, scientific, moral, practical���������is all centered in making woman more fitted  for tho responsibilities and privileges of woman's sphere.
