You can get business sometimes  without merit but no repeat orders.  Begin the new year right by  putting a bigger ad in your local  paper.  Half of the people in Canada  worship the Bible, but have never  read it.  God must lovo the common people or he would not have made so  many of them.  He is a gentleman" who adds exchange to his cheques when paying  bills at a distance.  The land boom is dying out in  the west, much to the sorrow of  the real estate peddlers.  The church is declining because  civilization is throwing away the  old orthodox beliefs. Those who  think cannot accept the many  myths that the Bible contains, and  reasoning minds today reject much  of what was formerly accepted.  Upon the ruin of old creeds and beliefs a newer and better religion  will be constructed. The golden  rule in action is hard to beat. Try  it.  It was a wise man who said that  in time tho human race will evolve  a finer perception, abetter recognition, and will find a higher dramatic, a more exquisite pageantry  than thoy havo yet done. Then,  together, man and woman will  labor, and their work' will be constructive. They will havo wisdom  to know that man and woman,  equal and together, are able to  make a world, a country, and a  home.  In B. C. we need to raise more  eggs, butter and chickens, and  fewer real estate booms.  In six States across the- line,  women have the privilege of exercising every "legal right that man  has.

Many are thinking today that  the world would be brighter if it  contained no booze, turkey or  plum pudding.  If you want to see Dante's Inferno, just fill up on lobsters,  cheese, fried onions and mince pie,  before going to bed.  ��������� Tite ministers of tho gospel' in  Nelson heve issued a pamphlet  upon the social evil in that city in  which they display, at least, a vast  thoretical knowledge of the evils  and dangers of the oldest profession on earth. Free love is the  only cure for this evil, but the  world is not far enough advanced  to embrace the true meaning of  those two words. When it does  the millenium will be here, and  the whiz of wings will be unceasing.

During the year that is just closing we lost many of our subscribers  by death, and nearly all of them  wero in debt for their paper.  Their poor souls have our sympathy.  In England are raised tho finest  beef cattle in the world, and yet  there is little pasturage in that  country.

In Texas tbey are putting the  professional gamblers in jail, but  not so in some parts of B. 0.. In  some towns in this'province the  local authorities permit gambling,  thinking that it makes business  more prosperous. This is an erroneous idea, as the prosperity that  is bailt upon the tears of women,  and the curses of men cannot be  lasting. We have seen right here  in Greenwood women weeping,  with breaking hearts, because their  husbands had been ruined by the  gambling mania.  Thinking Themes  As a rule we uphold anything  and everything that redounds to  our personal advantage. That is  why the booze dealer says that a  shot or two will do you no harm,  and others pursue the same tactics  according to their line of business.  Most of people excuse .anything  The millennium is hastening on.  The greatest foe to human progress has been war. So long as  war was tho fashion and men  fought continually, society had no  chance to develop.  It was like a plant which is constantly cut off just as it is beginning  to put forth leaves.  The human race has never grown  so fast in the history of the world  as it has in America since the war  of the rebellion. More progress,  economically, ethically and industrially has been made here in the  last fifty years than anywhere else  in any 500 years.  If war, and all militarism, and  military preparedness, could be  abolished in the earth, and a ra-  That tho man who sleeps between a pair of blankets all winter  is on a par with tho individual who  wears his underclothes six months  and as likely to contract pneumonia  was the announcement Monday of  Health Officer Dr. J. B. Anderson,  who is conducting a campaign to reduce the number of deaths from  pneumonia, which, the records of  last year show, amounted to more  than for any other disease, tuber-  colosis not being any exception.  Dr. Anderson said that' it was  probable that every citizen of Spokane has pneumonia germs in jhis  nose and that if he fails to observe  the proper precautions he may be  one of the four-score victims to pad  the city death roll next year. In  his crusade against pneumonia Dr,  Anderson is producing the records,  which show that 101 persons died  last .year, many of whom were  strong, but failed to observe the  proper sanitary precautions.  In his admonitions lately Dr.  Anderson urged sheets instead of  woolen blankets and attacked the  practice of visiting where pneumonia patients are being cared for.  Dr. Anderson said:  "Pneumonia is more"prnvalent  during cold weather, probably due  to tho fact that during winter we  shut ourselves in unventilated  houses.  "Pneumonia is not contracted in  fresh, open air,  "The pneumonia germ is a very  friendly little fellow. Rarely do  you find him absent from the nose  and mouth of any one, ready,to go  to work at the first opportunity  presented by lowered vitality.  "The first step in pneumonia  prevention is to ventilate our  houses. Ventilate in cold weather,  in lainy weather, as well as during  warm weather. Open your windows and doors and keep them  open fifteen or twenty minutes  night and morning. You will be  surprised to observe how quickly  your house will warm up after this  treatment. The next time you  feel chilly, the thermometer registering seventy, just try opening up  the windows five or ten minutes  instead of putting more coal in the  heater.  Be sure and keep your bedroom  windows open during sleeping  hours. It is difficult for people to  believe such rigid action is good  for their health, but we know they  are more than safe if they are  properly covered. Sleep between  sheets;; If you find it chilly on going to bed, use tho chauffer of the  French���������hot water bottle���������a fow  minutes beforo retiring  "Look to your living rooms which  are usually overheated. A temperature of seventy degrees Farn-  heit is plenty warm; sixty-eight is  better. Moisture should be continually supplied by having a teakettle on tho stove, or a shallow  pan of water on tho radiator. Modern furnaces are provided with a  water pot in tho air chamber. Inspect this night and morning; seo  that it is continually filled with  water.  "Then adapt your clothing to  the temperature. If you keep a  tropical temperature in your house,  don't forget that tho Arctic zone  is represented outside.  "Pneumonia is contagious, so do  not visit and come in close contact  with anyone suffering from pneu  monia.  If you have pneumonia you  can't get well without fresh air  and the recumbent posture."-  Spokesman Review.  The Indians  That wo Canadians are a great  good Christian and just people  there can be- no doubt. We ourselves are prepared to admit it.  But we have a penchant for leaving  things unfinished. We trust a  great deal in the Lord Almighty.  Which is all very well. But we  don't' do our part as well as we  should, with the result that we find  many things well started but poorly  finished.  Ono of these things is our Indian  policy. Which is no doubt one of  the best-intended things ever  evolved but it works like molasses  in water.  Away   back   somewhere   about  fifty or one hundred  years ago the  happy   thought   was   evolved   to  select the choicest parcels of land  in British Columbia, and upon this  land to put the Indians,   where  they could  have everything they  needed to live upon���������if they worked for it.    This was all  very good  of  us.    Tho Indian  was running  wild.    He   owned   everything in  sight���������so far as  he could or can  own anything.    We confined him.

It is shown that the Canadian  railroads have bombarded every  locomotive and foundary company  in Canada with orders for new  equipment which will keep them  busy well into 1913. In addition  large orders have been placed with  United States companies, so that  the risk of congestion in the crop  movement may be minimized.

There are thousands of hunters and trappers in  this country  who are destroying  hundreds of thousand of animals  yearly, in order to furnish furs for  uncivilized man and, particularly,  barbaric woman.    No pen can do  adequate justice to the tragedy of  the steel trap.    Laws are urgently  required to carefully regulate the  use of traps where they cannot be  wholly prohibited.    Myriads of unfortunate little animals are left to  starve   or freeze,  and  suffer for  days until death gives them relief  or the hunter  finally   mercifully  knocks them on the head.   Some  states have a law requiring that  traps should be visited every one  or two days.   Such laws should be  passed in every state, where trapping cannot be legally forbidden.  Enormous numbers of animals are  trapped in Canada for their furs,  which are largely shipped to  the  United States.   One by one whole  species of animals are being exterminated.  There are prosperous journals  devoted to trapping interests in  this conntry and whole libraries of  During the coming winter the  officers in charge of the Brazeau  and   Athabaska divisions   of   the  Rocky Mountains   forest reserves  propose to  make  "administrative  site" surveys at different points on  the reserves.    Upon these sites it  is proposed to. erect ranger and  look-out stations which will be no  farther apart than  one day's trip  by pack train,  along the primary  trail system of the Brazeau reserve.  It is the intention to erect,  this  winter,  at least three or four log  cabins for the   rangeis.    A telephone system is also being planned  whereby these ranger stations will  be connected by  telephone to the  forest   supervisor's   office.     This  office is centrally located and telephone lines will run in from all  directions, much in the. manner of  the spokes of a wheel with the central office as the hub.  This region is one of the richest  coal regions in Canada and the  further development of these coal  fields will-be amazing. A number  of large coal mines are already in  operation, and, with the completion of the branches of the G.T,P.  railway now under construction,  will be shipping thousands of tons  daily.  With the future development of  this country, the timber must be  preserved. This region has once  been forested with very valuable  timber, which has largely been  destroyed by fires in the past.  There is still an abundant supply  ARG������   TUNNEL  Work goes steadily on at  the Argo mine, and indications  point to the early striking of the  lead. From the amount of lead  matter that has recently been encountered it looks as though a  large deposit of high grade ore  might be struck any day.

C,  There was a certain Plsander whose  name has been preserved In one of the  proverbial savings of the Greeks because be lived in continual fear of see-  lng bis own guo.st. Just tbut thing happened to the German poet Goethe. One  day, when he was out riding lu a  spot somewhat removed from the usual  haunts of men. he saw a horsuman  approaching liiin. and as it drew near  he saw that the rider wus no-less a'  person than 'hiruself-nls other self���������  though dressed differently. Twenty  years after lie found himself quite  without forethought'of the matter In  the same place on Horseback and dressed just as was the uppuritlou of himself which he had met there two decades before.  Lord Brougham 'pronounced Urootm.  the English statesman,'orator und author, after whom the well known  species of vehicles wus mimed, had u  remarkable experience with a "spook."  Be tells the story In Ills autobiography  published in 1871.  "A most remarkable thing happened  to me," he says,"'so remarkable that 1  must tell the story from' the beginning  After 1 left tlie high school (In Edinburgh) I went with <!.. my niosi Intl  mate friend, to attend the rinses In  the university.. We freiiueutly in our  walks discussed and speculated upon  rami's grave subjects, among others  on the Immortality of the soul and a  future state. This question nnd the  possibility. I will not say or ghosts  walking, but of the dead appearing  to the living, were subiects of much  speculation, and we actually committed  the folly of drawing up un agreement  written with our blood, to tbe effect  that whichever of us died flrst should  appear to the other nnd thus solve  any doubt we had entertained of the  ���������life after death."  "After we had finished classes at  college G.went to India, having got  an appointment there In the civil service. He seldom wrote tne. and after a  lapse of a few years 1 had almost forgotten him. .Moreover, bis family having little connection with Kdinburgh,  I seldom saw or heard anything of  them, so that nil the old schoolboy intimacy had died out and 1 bad nearly  forgotten his existence. I had taken,  as I have said, a warm bath, and while  In It and enjoying the comfort of the  beat after the late freezing 1 had undergone I turned my head round toward the chair on which I had deposited my clothes as I was about to  get out of the bath. On the chair sat  G. calmly looking at me. How I got  out'of'the bath I know not. but on recovering' my senses I found myself  sprawling on the floor. The apparition or whatever It was that had taken  the likeness or G. had disappeared."  It was afterward ascertained that G.  had died in India on the very day his  apparition was seen by Lord Brougham.  Very similar is an incident related  by Sir Walter Scott under date of 1818.  A certain Mr. Bullock had been employed by Sir Walter to make Improvements at Abbotsford. Mr. Bullock  ���������was called to London, and during his  absence the Incident narrated In the  following letter took place. Seott, writing to a Mr. Terry, says:  "The night before last we were  awakened by a violent noise like the  drawing of new boards along the new  part of the house. I fancied something had fallen and thought no more  of It This was about 2 In the morning. Last night at the same witching  hour the same noise ocurred. Mrs. S.,  as you know, Is rather tlmersome, so  I got up with Beardy's broadsword  tinder my arm���������  "Sat bolt upright  And read? to fight  "But nothing was out of order. Neither could 1 discover what occasioned  the disturbance." The strange thing  about this 1b that Bullock died in London on the very day. and as near as  could be ascertained at the very hour  that Sir Walter heard the "spooks" at  'Abbotsford. In writing later to the  eame correspondent he said: "Were  you not struck with the fantastical co-  Incidence of our nocturnal disturbance  at Abbotsford with the melancholy  event that followed? 1 protest to you  that the noise resembled half a dozen  men hard at work pulling up boards  and furniture, and nothing could be  more certain than that nobody was on  the premises at tbe time."  These are Instances of what may be  termed successful ghosts. Tbe ghosts  that bave failed are perhaps entitled  to a brief notice. A "ghost" once undertook to frighten the great naturalist. Cuvier. This ghost appeared with  an ox's head. Cuvier awoke and found  the fearful thing glaring and grPnnlng  at his bedside.  "What do yon want?"  "To devour you." growled the ghost  "Devour me," quoth the great  Frenchman, "hoofs, horns, graminivorous?   You can't do It   Clear out!"  And clear out tho discomfited ghost  did.���������Kansas City Star.  Humor and  Philosophy  9y 7>V/tCAJ* M. SMITH  PERT PARAGRAPHS.

Gold recovered was 1,976  ounces, against 1,819 in tho preceding month while silver increased  to "12,364 ounces' from 10,794.

The closing year  has   been   the   most   prosperous  period in the history of the British  Columbia company  the net earning having reached approximately  8900,000, according to a statement  made recently by an official of the  company   who   was in   Spokane.

To The Miner Mr.  Elmendorf said that the Tunnel  company had completed the purchase of the Melba, Olga, Kootenay  and Little Pearl fraction claims  from Peardon & Macdonald. The  group is situated directly west and  adjoining the holdings of the Port-  Canal Mining company and carries  the same vein series.  "With the exception of one  small incorporated company we  have been entirely successful in  closing contracts with holders of  all the claims situated aloug the  line of the proposed 2,000-foot tunnel," Mr. Elmendorf said to the  interviewer. "Excellent progress  is now being made in driving the  tunnel, which is 7 x 7 in the clear.  At the start we expected some  trouble in getting through the  heavy wash on the mountain side,  but this has been successfully  passed through and we are now  entering the solid formation. All  the necessary steel and equipment  has been ordered and thoro will be  no let up in prosecuting the driving of the bore."  In acquiring the additional  claims tho company has decided to  become owners as well as operators  and the group purchased will add  materially to the assets of the  Tunnel company, besides tho very  valuable contracts already entered  into with other mining .concerns  and individuals for the transportation and handling of ores and  drainage services to be rendered.���������  Stewart Miner.  0000<>0<><>0<KX>00<>OOOCK>0<>00<K>  |  B.C. raise NEWS   I  000<>CK><>0<X>OCK>00<H>aO<>0<)OCK>0  W.

From the report  of a local mining engineer and the  initial amount of work that is  being accomplished this season,  consisting of fifteen pits and two  shafts, values have been obtained  running.from 23 cents to $6 per  yard.  The same authority states that  these leases are what might be  termed ideally situated for dredging. The general average value is  good, there is any quantity of  territory and there is not a boulder  on the bars or benches that would  interfere with the working of a  bucket line. Another thing worthy  of consideration is the fact that a  railroad runs across the leases,  making it possible to bring in  equipment and place it in position  at a minimum cost. ��������� Stewart  Miner.

If this information is refused don't buy it.  Some of the low grade baking powders are  advertised, but the ingredients of the powders  are scrupulously concealed.

The report of the geological survey of the Dominion Department  of Mines for 1911, recently issued,  contains the summary reports of  Mr. Charles Camsell and his assistants, A. M. Bateman and others,  on tho mineral deposits of the districts tributary to Hope and Yale.  Of what is now, the property  of  The Aufeas Gold Minea, Limited,  Mr.  Camsell says:    ''A group of  three mining claims, known as the  Jumbo group, is situated  on  the  west side  of Silver 'creek,  about  four   miles   southwest   of   Hope.  The claims lie in a steep, narrow  gorge,   at an  elevation   of   about  1,100   feet   above   the   sea.    The  country  rock   is   massive   grano-  diorito,    in    places   sheared   and  traversed   by j fissures.     The   ore  deposits lie in the fissure veins and  have a width averaging about eight  inches.    Thoy contain dull-colored  arsenopyrite, and a  little chalco-  pyrite  in  a gangue of quart/., and  carry gold  as the principal valuable motal.    The value of the ore  in the fissures rangos from  $10 to  860 to the ton.    The claims are  developed   by   throe   tunnels and  several open cuts."  Of the Skagit Valley Mr. Cam-  sell and his staff have not a high  opinion. Tho story of theStevens-  Greenwalt hoax is told, and as a  summary Mr. Camsell says: "The  results of tho examination of this  deposit shows that the deposits on  and around Steamboat Mountain  do not.carry gold, and that those  at the mouth of tho Snmallow  River���������known as Twenty-Throe  Mile Camp���������while being more  promising, are of low grade."  The Steamboat, Yellow Jacket,-  Utah and Ella are declared not to  contain a trace of gold. ���������  The International, near the  boundary has little gold, but some  values in silver and copper.  The Diamond group on the west  side of the Skagit at Twenty-Three  Mile is reported to carry 81.20 in  gold and about S18.00 in silver.  Th'e Horseshoe also has values  in gold and silver, but not high.  Of the copper deposits Mr. Cam-  sell says only: "Some native  copper appears in the fracture,  planes of the surface rock."  The Si wash Creek area which  was examined by A. M. Bateman,  is considered a very promising  field. The gold occure in the  porphry dykes, and these are wide  and numerous. Similarly encouraging remarks are made about  Hidden Creek.  The Bridge River and adjacent  deposits in Lillooet are also favorably mentioned. "Free gold can  be seen in many of the veins and  can be obtained by panning from  almost any of the outcrops. In  places tho ore is exceedingly rich."  Apart from information as to  probable values of deposits in the  different fields, the report is very  interesting as it is of tho first geological recconaisance of tho Fraser  Canyon and surrounding country  since those of Dr. A. R. C. Solwyn  in 1871-2, and Dr, G. M. Dawson  a little later.  If the experts' opinions of the  deposits of the districts are less  favorable than those of the prospectors, it is not proved that the  prospectors are wrong, and the  geological information is of value  to all engaged or interested - in  the district.

Assays from  this remarkable property have run  as high as 8100,000   to the ton,  taken from the 70-foot level.    One  lead which has been opened represents millions of dollars, and when  the mining men of the world come  to know^this property better a sensation is going to be created that  will bring the Atlin country to the  front as a mining district.     The  above is tho gist of a statement  made to us by Captain Hawthorn,  who with Captain Alexander of the  Engineer mine,  are leaving   this  evening for Vancouver' and  from  thenco will go to England for the  purpose of attracting the attention  of English capitalists to the mining  resources of the Atlin. district.  ��������� During the summer a number of  prominent -raining men- have visited the Engineer mine,  which has  had thirty men  at work for the  past season,  and they  have   expressed themselves as being astounded at the richness of the quartz  being recently uncovered.    Operations have been handicapped by the  lack of proper machinery and it is  the intention of Captain Alexander  to equip the mine with an efficient  plant for future work.  The placer operations this year  are showing better than hiterto.  It is only within the past month  that two new strikes have been  made.

Why 8honld?jCauadian ham* or  bacon bo ten or twelve cents dearer  here than in England?  There is no use in making the  excuse that labor is better paid  in Canada than in England. The  excuse is bad, because the bacon  is produced by Canadian labor.  The Englishman in England pays  this cost of production, and also  the cost of transportation by rail  and ocean.  Therefore we ought to get the  bacon and ham for a good deal  less than is paid in England, instead of ten or twelve cents a  pound more.  Canada is a storehouse of- food,  producing more than it can consume, and helping to feed tho rest  of the world, yet tho price of food  is far higher here than in England,  which does not produce nearly  enough food for its own needs. .

It is reported that the Associated  Oil Company, 300,000 of whose  400,000 shares are held by the  Southern Pacific and Southern  Pacific officials and allied capitalists, are included in the negotiations. Whether this is so is not  definitely known.  Negotiations wore conducted  through Lyman and W. L. Stewart  at Los Angeles.

Are Being Cured by Vinol.  Did you ever cough for a month?  Then, just think how distressing it  must be to have a cough hang on for  three months.  Mrs. Maria Primrose, of 87 Newell  Street, Brooklyn, N.

The eifect  of taking your cod liver and iron remedy, Vinol, is that my cough is gone.  I can now get a good night's rest, and  I feel much stronger in every way."  It is the combined action of the  medicinal elements, cods' livers, aided  by the blood-making and strength-  creating properties of tonic iron which  makes Vinol so efficient in curing  chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis  ���������at the same time building up th������  weakened, run-down system.
