At  one time iu company with Gus  Eastman, he kept the Hotel Colin  at Grand Forks, selling out to  Theo Biner a few months ago.  He was somewhat given to strong  drink, and it is thought that he  committed the rash deed while in  a condition of temporary dementia.

Just twenty days  to Christmas,  and many a sock is still holy.  It is better to become intoxicated  upon oxygen, than square gin.

But their is another fact, tragic  and terrible, equally shattering.  It is disillusion.  When two have shared the dearest intimacy, who have been fused  by lovo into a single personality  with one mind, one joy, one life,  begin to separate, misunderstand,  suspect, and little by little or suddenly, are riven apart, and love,  which was life, becomes but an  episode, than this I can conceive  nothing more appalling.  To preserve love, no pains, no  selfdenial, no sacrifice is too great,  except that love itself has become  a degradation. No haunted house  is so frightful as tho heart haunted  by the ghost of a dead love. No  emptiness of a life whence love is  fled. f"Tis better to have loved  and lost than never to have loved  at all," provided we lose by death,  for death alone can nobly part  lovers; but when the loss is by  alienation then "the last state of  that man is worse than tho first."  ���������Dr. Frank Crane.  Nineteon   grading   camps   containing on an  average forty men  have    been    established   between  Hammond aud Ruby creek on the  C. P. R. main  line.    The railway  company, through Grant Smith &  Co., contractors, is busily engaged  grading tho   entire   distance   for  double   track.      There   are   now  seven steam shovels at work and  these, together with the men employed, will get the grading on the  entire fifty-seven  mile** completed  in the course of the next nine or  ten months.    Rapid progress is being made and thc contractors hope  to increase tho number of men on  tho work.    More camps are to be  established.  When this work is completed the  C.P.R. will bo double tracked for a  distance of eighty-one miles out of  Vancouver.'   Tho double tracking  between Hammond and Vancouver,  twenty-four miles,   is  now about  complete.    There   aro   somo   soft  spots near Bamet when*' tho grading crews and  work  trains have  been kept busy trying to bring tho  new line up to the grade.   This  difficult stretch, the railway men  behove, will soon   bo in readiness  for operation.  Again  the  value of the British  market.    Under tho proposed reciprocity agreement Canadian wheat  was to go to the United States,  a country which is a great competitor of the Dominion in the export  of wheat   and   flour,  and   which  wanted  Canadian wheat only for  tho benefit of tho milling industry  and carrying trade of the United  States.    A report to the Department of Trade and Commerce from  J. E. Roy,   trade commissioner at  Birmingham,  shows that the de-  maud for Canadian  wheat flourin  England  is increasing.    Inquiries  are reaching the office for   hard  wheat flour, and Mr.   Roy understands that a big demand  for the  Canadian product is likely, as the  quantity and quality of British and  continental wheat are'not up to the  average this year.    Mr.  Roy further states that firms in a position  to export Canadian brooms, whisks  About Beauty  and brushes, should be able to do  business in Birmingham, but that  the Canadian home market is absorbing the supply.  The Hudson Bay  First Class Seed  Two Comparisons  There was an earthquake in  Vancouver the other day. It is  not known what fell on the town.  Perhaps the price of real estate fell  down, and jarred the atmosphere,  or maybe some Rube loosened up  the formation by trying to shake  the rain out of his boots.  Is some of the towns in this province Bowser's Liquor Act is a complete favce, while in country places  it is a tragedy.

The samples' for  general distribution will consist of  spring wheat (5 lbs.,) white oats  (4 lbs.,) barley (5 lbs.,) and field  peas (5 lbs.) These will be sent  out from Ottawa.

Bull pine when tapped for resin under the ordinary  cup and gutter system, yields two-  thirds the amount obtained from  the pine trees in Georgia and Florida, whore the production of turpentine is a long established industry. Some enterprising individual  now has an opportunity to start a  now industry in this great province,  in which there is so much bull pine,  lowing story:  ���������'When the Sultan of Turkey  gave orders for the mobilization  of his troops he sent to the King  of Bulgaria a sack of millet with  the following letter:  " 'Ferdinand Effendi: Mobilize  it you like, but be assured that  there are as many soldiers in Turkey as there are grains of millet in  this sack.

Tho practicability of shipping Canadian peaohos to England  was first tested by tho Department  of Trade and Commerce in 1910.  The experiment proved successful  and   succeeding   shipments have  found a ready market.   This year  the weather conditions  were regarded as unfavourablo and peach  exporters were in somo doubt as to  of  the Canadian  Farm at Ottawa supplying only the  provinces of Ontario and Quebec.  All samples will be sent free, by  mail.  Applicants must give particulars  in regard to the soil on their farms,  and some account of their experience with such kinds of grain (or  potatoes) as they have grown, so  that a promising sort for their conditions may be selected.  Each application must be separate and must bo signed by the  applicant. Only one sample of  grain and one of potatoes can be  sent to each farm. Applications  on any printed form can be accepted. If two or more samples are  asked for in the same letter only  one will be sent.  As the supply of seed is limited,  farmers are advised to apply early;  bub the applications will not necessarily be filled in the exact order  in which they are received. Preference will be given to the most  thoughtful and explicit requests.  Applications after tho end of January will probably bo too late.  All applications for grain (aud  applications from the provinces of  Ontario and Quebec for potatoes)  should bo addressed to tho. Dominion Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such applications require no postage. If  otherwise addressed delay and disappointment may occur.  Applications, for potatoes, from  farmers in any other province  should be addressed (postage prepaid) to the Superintendent of the  nearest Branch Experimental Farm  in that province.  The energy and determination of  Hon. Frank Cochrane in  pushing  tho construction  of   the   Hudson  Bay   Railway    is   bearing   fruit.  Grading has .already been done for  a distance of sixty miles, and with  the whole lino now under contract  work  will bo   rushed next year.  Tho contractor,   J. D. McArthur,  is getting his supplies for the construction work on tho ground this  fall and is confident of completing  the road  by 1914.    Tho Hudson  Bay project which,   under the former government was never more  than a project,   with a habit   of  livening up on the eve of elections,  has become a certainty  since the  now government took hold of the  question.    In two years tho railway will bo there,  aud the west  will have what it asked for so long  in  vain  from the Laurier government.    The building of tho line is  being undertaken in a businesslike  way by the Minister of Railways,  who has availed himself of tho best  engineering advice obtainable.  Short of Men  Londou.���������Much speculation has  arisen concerning the visit of a  Canadian naval officer to Portsmouth on a naval recruiting mission. Lieutenant White, ��������� R. N.,  of the naval staff at, Halifax, has  arrived there to open a recruiting  office for the Dominion navy. The  Canadian cruiser Niobe is also expected to arrive there during the  first week in December to assist in  the same errand.  Lieutenant White will make the  Royal Naval Barracks at Portsmouth his headquarters while in  England.  A prominent Canadian in London explained the reasons and object of Lieutenant White's visit.'  The reason why we are sending  a recruiting officer to Britain for  our naval needs is because we cannot get enough recruits in Canada,  he said, Canada is so prosperous  that men for the navy are not to  be found.  There is so much work in Canada at the present time that it is  almost impossiblo to got men for  tho ships necessary for the country's defense. Consequently the  Canadian naval authorities have  to look elsewhere, and the old  country being "the natural recruiting ground of good fighting material, we come here.  Years ago the American navy  was largely manned by Swedes,  simply because the American working classes made so much money  ashore that it was not worth their  while to enlist in the navy.  We in Canada are suffering now  from the same trouble.  Beauty is a gift that should bo  appreciated and respected, aud ,the  woman who possesses it holds a  power for good beyond her less fortunate sisters.' To be  sure,   the  possession of beauty  is compared  with the possession of great wealth.  It is hard  to discriminate when  discovering who aro your friends.  From the days of extreme youth  when little boys choose pretty little  girls for their dancing partners in  preference to the plainer ones���������to  the grown up days when beauty is  sought as much for its influence  upon others as for the pleasure it  gives���������beauty has been a target���������  and the great comfort derived from  the possession of beauty is" measured by the capacity  one has for  forgetting it.  To constantly be conscious that  you  are   beautiful   to look upon  would dwarf any other consciousness and would in time make an  a.  idiot of a normally minded person.  There is no real beauty without  intellect for a face devoid of serious  thought is nothing less than dough.  To be sure, temptations are  greater for beautiful women than  for plain women, Therefore, their  goodness should be greater���������and  all women are good according to  the amount of godliness they possess.  Kindness of heart and generosity  of thought will beautify any face,  however plain, so no   woman need  be ugly.    Beautiful   features certainly have' 'an  advantage  over  plain or irregular features, but even  the beautiful features can grow distorted and  ugly by hardness   of  heart,  temper and intemperance.  Ono beauty bewails the fact that  beantiful   women    aro ' criticized  more severely than others.   That  is quite true, but they are better  able to stand  the criticism,  and,  after all, we must remember thero  is the law of compensation.  Beauty must pay the penality of  its pulchritude���������so things are evened up. All women have the same  chance in this world, for all women  have minds. It is the development  of the mind that opens all roads to  women.  A woman at seventy can be as  beautiful as she was at twenty, but  in a grander way, as the love of  humanity grows and drives out all  selfishness.��������� Lillian Russell.  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

There are still a  few small machines to come, such  as the lighting plant, etc. These  are however on the way. In the  meantime sinking has baen continued on the big shaft which is  now down 240 feet, and they have  never lost sight of the ore. Silver  Standard is now shaping up like a  big mine and soon the production  oi ore from that property will  prove it to be all that has been  claimed. The arrival of the snow  is all that is holding back the shipping.���������Hazelton Herald.  Revelstoke, Nov. 22.���������Mr. John  LeBas, oue of the bent known miners and old timers in the Shuswap  district, spent the early part of the  week in town, lb* confirmed the  reported sale of a group of copper  aud galena claims in the famous  cotton-belt at the head of the Shuswap lake, near Scvinour Arm, to  the Roi Mining company, of Rossland, The sum paid was 8200,000  and covered all eight claims. ,  The property included in the  deal were the Gipsy Queen, the  Copper Mountain, High Grade,  Bonanza, Seymour, Shuswap, Bluebird and King Edward. These  claims were located in the summer Jjj  of 1907, by a number of local prospectors from Seymour Arm, Notch  Hill, Salmon Arm and Armstrong.  They have had a largo amount of  exploration and development work  done on them already, and the  showing of silver-copper and galena  is one of the most remarkable and  extensive in tho province.  This proposition resembles in  many ways the famous copper  properties owned and operated by  tho Guggenheim*-! of 'Frisco, at  Valdez, Alaska. In porno'respects  tho cotton belt {imposition is a  much more simple ono than that on  the north Pacific coast. At Valeloz  over ������5,000,000 were spent in providing suitable transportation for  early shipment of ore. "With the  present high price of copper these  properties should bo one of porta-  tion for the ores from tho mines to  tidewater. In tho Seymour properties a gravity tram linn similar to  tho ono 111* operation at tho world  famous Nickel Plate at Hedley,  B. C, will be installed.  This will be controlled by electric power easily obtainable from  tho Seymour falls, about nine miles  from the mines. These falls will  also provide power for the operation of an ore carrying tramline  from the Seymour meadows at the  foot of the Cottonbelt mountain to  Seymour Arm, a distance of nine  miles.���������Chase Tribuue.

The following by the Revelstoke  correspondent of the Vancouver  Sun is substantially the same as the  story of the deal published in the  Tribune some monchs ago. As a  matter of fact, the deal is not yet  finally concluded and no work is  likely to be done until next sum-  ���������Wholesome-  Indispensable  Its fame is world-wide. Its superiority  unquestioned. Its use is a protection  against alum food. In buying baking  powder examine the label carefully  and be sure the powder is made from  cream of tartar. Other kinds do not  make the food healthful.  A. cash price has been asked  from Mrs. J. O. Coulthard, part  owner of the Allison mine, Copper  Mountain, located in 1SS3, and a  deal is quite probable. Thp ore  of this mine is in the picture class  and is very rich in gold and gray  copper.  XV. C. Mitchell, the diamond  drill contractor for tho B. C. Copper Co., recently received orders  to move a drill from the Princess  Maud to Voigt Camp, about a mile  distant. Inside of eighteen hours  the drill was taken apart and loaded on sleighs, set up, and thirty-  four feet drilled. This is considered record work ancl proves  that the contractor and his crew  have their business down to a fine  point.  During tlie month of October  tho Princeton Coal and Land company shipped over 4,(300 tons "of  coal, iind have far exceeded this  total in November. Unfortunately,  tho mine has been closed down  four times this month, owing to  tho railway company not having  kept them properly supplied with  empty box cars. Thero is no excuse for this neglect on their part,  as the coal company does more  than anyone to help along this  division of tho railroad, the freight  value 'of the October shipments  alone being well over $10,000.  Mr. Whiteman of the Princeton  Coal and Land Co., has just returned from visiting the company's agents in tho Boundary  country, and reports that in every  case business is booming. All the  agents speak enthusiastically about  the improvement in the coal since  thp installation of tho new plant,  and informed Mr. Whiteman that  there is a steady growth in the demand for Princeton coal by the  public,  and there *ih no question  Yesterday the recond payment  was made on the Idaho-Alamo  group by XV. E. Finch and associates. Development "work is being  pushed on the property. About  fifteen hundred sacks of ore are  ready to be hauled down to the  railway at Alamo siding. One  car of ore is already at the siding  and will be shipped in a few days.  As development progresses the  property is showing up better each  day.  Another pocket of ore was crosscut in the deep-level tunnel of the  Star at Sandon last week. The  tunnel is about 200 feet from  where it is expected the big ore  shoot will be found.  There are seven inches of clean  ore in the tunnel being run  through the Goodenough at Sandon  to the Dunedin. The tunnel is  now about fifty feet from tho Dunedin line.  The Euth mine at Sandon is  averaging about two cars of ore  a month. Fifteen hundred sacks  of ore are now ready for shipment.  Geo. McCready and partner  have made a good clean-up on the  Reco dump at Sandon. In four  months the net returns were 83,200.  The deep-lovel tunnel on the  Payne is being driven about two  hundred feet a month.���������Slocan  Record. *  Nature rings its warning. A  neglected cold is the shortest road  to physical ruin.

SUFFRAGIST MEETING  Last Thursday evening the Roman Catholic congregation  met at  tho homo of Mr. T.  Cudeleford to  say farewell to their beloved pastor  Rev. Father Beck who was called  away suddenly to Now Westminster to  take   the  place  of Rev.  Father O. Boyle who is very ill at  St,  Mary's hospital.   During the  evening Mr.  Branagan in a few  well chosen words presented him  with a gold watch in behalf of the  congregation.      Father    thanked  them not only for their present but  for their kindness and consideration during his short residence of  live months.   Songs were snng by  Mr. Branagan,  Mr. Dehosia, Mrs.  Cnddeford, Miss McCullough, Miss  Smidth and others.   Mrs.  Cudde-  ford served a delicious lunch and a  very pleasant evening was brought  to a close by singing of Auld Lang  Syne   and   bidding   fare-well   to  Last Thursday afternoon a meeting was held in Greenwood for the  purpose of organizing a chapter of  the Woman's Political Equality  League. Miss Davis, of Victoria,  who was the guest of Miss Colin  Cummins while in the city presided  and there were fifteen Greenwood  ladies present. Mrs. McCutcheon  was elected president of the Greenwood chapter, and Miss Shaw secretary-treasurer. In the evening a  farce, "How The Vote Was Won"  was successfully presented by  Greenwood amateurs, following  which Miss Davis addressed the  meeting. Her speech, while short,  was to the point, aud put woman's  position and woman's needs very  distinctly find convincingly, and  was enthusiastically received by  the audience. Following Miss  Davis' speech, Mr. McLaine the  chairman, read this resolution,  which was moved by Mrs, McCutcheon, seconded by Mr. J. L.  Whito and passed practically unanimously by the meeting.  'lESOLUTION  That the meeting realizes the  urgent need that the woman's  point of view should be directly  represented in legislation and in  all affairs of the nation and deplores the injustice to herself aud  the loss to the state involved in her  present political position, and preferring that , British Columbia  should lead all the other provinces  of Canada in all matters of progressive reform rather than follow,  it calls upon the provincial government to introduce and carry dur-t  ing the coming session a bill giving!  the vote to women on the same  terms as it is or may be given to  men.  fflLLOW RIVER���������On main line of  Grand Trunk Pacific and Pacific &  Hudson Bay Railway..
