The strike was made  by the pile driving gang, who in  driving an . especially   long   pile  found crude oil   to  be oozing up  along side of the pile.

Thompson,   one of the proprietors of the B. C.

Mr.   Thompson's action,  which  required    plenty    of   nerve,   undoubtedly    saved    several   lives,  which would have been lost had a  collision taken place.   *"  Mr.   Thompson   was   returning  from  Keremeos,   and  the   powerful Chase was  eating up the miies  easily at a speed close to twenty-  five miles   an   hour.    When   the  turn was rounded the horses were  not more than ten feet away, and  it required lightening action on the  part of the driver to save the situation.     Mr.   Thompson took   the  chance,   driving his car oyer the  fifteen  foot embankment without  an  instant's  hesitation.    All   tho  damage that resulted was a strained steering rod.���������Penticton   Herald.  The Jews in Canada  The Jews is becoming a most  powerful  factor in the making of  Canada.

A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  ���������become, deceased, and that tho editor would once moro  liko to commune with your collateral.  uouncement concerning irrigated  lands. "So far as I know," Dr.  Galloway is quoted by the Associated Press, "there never has been  any long continued irrigation in a  semiarid climate anywhere in the  world."  Dr. Galloway remark was made  in his testimony before the house  committee on appropriations for  the department of agricultuio. Ho  said that tho department is working hard to overcome, tho rccog-  uized dangers which today confront the fanners on irrigated lands  and that theso dangers lie not  only in the alkali on irrigated soils  but also in the gradual leaching  from tlm soil of its organic matter  and tho consequent reduction of  soil fertility.  John T.' Burns, secretary-treasurer of the .International Dry-  Farming Congress, confirms Mr.  Galloway's statement.

Biiyan is a great man and seems  to have, tho courage of his convictions. At a recent state dinner in  Washington, he would not serve  anything stronger than grape juice.  The affair passed away in harmony  no one falling under the table or  craning a rough house.  We do not believe that it is wise  for two people to get married who  are opposed to each other in religious creeds. A divided house is  apt to fall, so man and wife should  have the same ideas about religion  and politics. Otherwise there is no  telling wheu they will have a rough  house.  It will probably be fifty years  or more beforo the Grits again get  a chance to sit on the high seats in  Ottawa. By that time a new and  better generation of Grits will have  sprung into existence. Tho greed  for spoils must die ont before the  so-called Liberals of our day can  ever expect to gain and hold the  votes, confidence and admiration  of the Canadian people.  human nature. Wo may bo sure,  on general principles, that in the  main, men and women have chosen  celibacy because they wished.  There are claustral souls, by  nature. Particularly among women there are those who are born  without a taste for marriage. In  addition to those who do not  marry because thoy cannot find  the right man, there are those who  do want no man at all.  Every age has had its order of  virgins. There were chaste priestesses in the Orient, and Vestals in  Rome before there were "brides of  Christ" in the church, aud the  "old maid" of today has noble  procedents.  And we may be sure that while  some like Virginie do Leyva and  Glulia Carraciolo "breathed with  intoxicating desire, through the  convent granting, the perfumes of  nature and of the world of men,"  still the perpetual fashion of  maidenhood  could not have per-  gor which ho describe.'*," says Mr.  Burns,  "lias long been recognized  by  many  students  of  soils.    We  hope   to   havo   tibe   problem   discussed  thoroughly   at our  eighth  Congress    in   Tulsa'in   October.  Thero   can   he.   but  one  remedy.  Use loss water.    Conserve the rainfall   through  deep  ploughing and  surface   cultivation.      Add    only  that  amount of  irrigation   water  necessary  for the  maximum production    of   crops.    Increase   the  duty of water by adding labor on  the soil.    All the fertilizers in the  world will not serve as a substitute  for the plow,  the harrow, and tho  disc with an  intelligent  man   behind them.  "The wise irrigalionists already  knows, and all irrigationist are  coming to know, that the principles  of dry-farming form the basis of  all agriculture. Irrigation is  merely an adjunct to good farming."  The Real Way  sieted without being based upon a  perpetual trait of human nature.  The maiden by choice has her  place in the world, and who can  say it has not been a uoble one?  It will be fifty years next July  sinco the battle of Gettysburg was  fought in the American Civil War,  and the event is to be celebrated  with {considerable eclat, fireworks  and spread eagle speeches by our  cousins across the line. We believe that it is just as well to cut  out celebrations that tend to cause  harsh feelings, in tlie breasts of  many who wore the Gray at Gettysburg and are still living.  Aliens will soon be unable to  hold land in California, Perhaps  it is just as well for that great  state, says a sarcastic speaker, is  filled with flowers without fragrance, fruit without flavor, men  without honor, and women without virtue. Perhaps that is why  tho Lord put San Francisco iu the  consomme a few years ago, it being  a reincarnation of those two cities  of early days, that all know about  who have faithfully prospected the  Bible.   Thinking Themes  The ordinary person is shocked  to think of a young healthy girl  entering a convent. We regard  the vast monasteries and coventual  institutions of the middle ages as  unnatural. Protestants make a  viitue of indignation at the celibacies of Roman Catholicism.  And yet two things ought to  bo borne in mind First, that no  custom could possibly live centuries  without   having   some   basis   in  Not only does a mau's handwriting characterize him; each one  has his peculiar gestures, mannerisms that are as unmistakably his  own are his thumb-nails or his  Bertillon measurements.  A Scotland Yard detective told  me that he recognized a man almost entirely by "his walk and  the way he handles himself," and  depended very little upon facial  appearance. A criminal can  change his clothes, beard and even  his countenance and speech simply  enough, but will forget that little  hacking cough, or his peculiar  manner of sprawling in his chair,  or the way he has of running his  fingers through his hair.  An observing friend coming from  the House of Commons regaled us  with     the    following    autograph  habits of its loaders; Mr. Asquith,  the prime  minister,   writhes  and  wriggles his shoulders; Mr. Bonar  Law, the opposition  leader, has a  face as immobile as a poker player,  but incessantly moves his hands,  as if he didn't know what to do  with them; Mr.  Lloyd George has  a pet phrase he keeps bringing in,  "Well,     now;"     Mr.     Winston  Churchill has a trick of covering  his mouth with his hand; Mr. Mc-  Kenna bangs his desk during his  speech as if beating a drum; whon  Mr. Birrell is at a loss for a word  he snaps his fingers; and so each of  us, great and small,  has his betraying sign.���������Dr. Frank Crane.

Nature lias to lay  the foundations Tor that job, and  the individual must work out with  toil and sweat the. balance of the  contract.  That's the way Miss Garden herself became a prima donna, and  it's the, way that everybody elso  who succeeds turns the trick. The  road to achievement is a hard and  stony one, along which we must  travel on our own feet. We may  not reach the goal luxuriously  transported thither in somebody  else's automobile.  The reason why there are so  many failures in the world is because the great majority of people  sit around, helplessly waiting for  somebody else to come along and  make them, instead of rolling up  their sleeves and getting busy  themselves. They pine for laurel  wreaths, but they are not willing  to scratch their own fingers gathering tho material out of which to  make them. They expect some  kind friend to walk up and bestow  upon them a custom-made crown  of glory.  Every poor man believes that  Mr. Morgan and Mr. Rockefeller  know some magic formula for making money that they could divulge  if they would, that would enable  the laziest village loafer to acquire  riches without effort.  Every scribbler is firmly   convinced that every successful writer  elso down.  Every choir singer is confident  that Caruso and Farrar would get  him or her a $40,000 a year contract with tho Metropolitan opera,  ifi]������nly famous singers weren't so  afraid of rivals they tried to shut  real talent ont.  Every stage struck  boy  or girl  bolioves that John Drew or Maude  Adams has only to say a word to  make him or her a Frohman star.  Yet, if Mr. Rockefeller and Mr.  Morgan wero to divulge the whole  secret   of  money-making  to   any  youth anxious to become rich, all  that they could tell him would be  that  he must work, work,   work,  and  watch  his   opportunity,   and  that the one sure way to rise in a  business oflice is to   make yourself  30 invaluable  that your employer  can't do without you.  The only way that any successful writer can help the young man  and woman eager to break into  print is to tell them to write so  well and entertaingly that the public will want to read their stories  and verses. Then publishers will  fight with each other over their  productions.  All that the prima donna or the  star can tell the youthful aspirants  for operatic or dramatic honors is  that they must have talent to begin with, and polish and perfect  this by years of study and thought  and ceaseless endeavor, until their  art shines like a jewel, so that  audiences will be willing to pay  out good money to gloat over it.  None of these people who have  succeeded knew any dark magic to  conjure with. None of them had  any great patron who pushed them  into success. None of them was a  clinging vine that'hung on anybody  else.  Thoy saw what thoy wanted, and  they went out and got it. And  that's what everybody has to do  who succeeds.  As a matter of fact, there's vory  little that any of us, even with tho  0*  LYNN CREEK DAIRY  DELIVERED  To any p.irt of the city or district  J. McDONELL, Proprietor  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

Mr. Morgan could lend a  man enough money to start in  husiness, but ho couldn't give him  the financial sagacity to make a  success of that business. Unless  the man had that himself,-in the  end he would fail. Mr* Carnegie  didn't make his Schwabs and  Coreys.    They made themselves.  Miss Garden couldn't have made  the poor rich girl without a voice a  singer that a Metropolitan audience  would have applauded. Nor did  any wealthy or powerful individual  make tlio Totrazzinis and Farrars.  They made themselves.  Mr. Kipling himself couldn't get  the pointless, stupid, badly expressed story of hia dearest friend  into a first-class magazine, but  when he was a poor, obscure boy,  writing stories for a newspaper in  a faraway Indian city, the whole  world sat up and took notice. He  didn't call in Conan Doyle or tho  viceroy of India to get his work  accepted.  There are no people so mistaken  as thoso who believe in pull, instead of putting their faith in push.  They waste their time while they  aud agility and energy stays there.  The one who is boosted up a few  rounds by others falls to the bottom  when the supporting shoulders are  withdrawn.  If I coiild give one piece of advice to any ambitious young girl  or boy it would be this: Don't  waste any time or energy trying to  get influence or recommendation  or backing of some distinguished  person. Just play the game of life  off your own bat. Fit yourself for  what ever you want to do so that  you can deliver tlie.goods. That's  all that the worlfl wants, and that's  all that necessary to attain success.  And it's the ouly way to attain  success.  Nobody else can mako you great.  It's God aud yourself for that job.  ���������Dorothy Dix.  Many Bibles  One of the most remarkable men  connected with the publishing business in England is about to retire  in the person of Henry Frowde,  who for thirty-nine years has been  London manager of the Oxford  University Press, the oldest printing concern with an unbroken history in England. The activities  of tbia venerable organization are  world-wide, and it is well-known  in the trade that its retiring manager practically made the Oxford  University Press as it exists today.  When Frowde joined the Press  in 1S74, its output of Bibles was  less than a million; a year; since  that time it has published and distributed over 40,000,000 of them,  besides thousands of other works.

MINING NEWS   \  OOOCKKK>0000000000000000000  "I wouldn't give it for any claim  on the hill," said "Billy" Leach  to The Prospector, discussing the  Pioneer mine. Mr. Leach has for  some time been working **con-  tracf-" at the mine, and is enthusiastic regarding the showing  which id being made.  One tunnel has been driven 312  feet, and a second is in the rock a  distance of 300 feet. Twelve feet  of ore is in sight, according to  Mr. Leach, all of it containing  high values in gold.  Similar success is being experienced on the workings at the  Coronation group. At the Countess a two and a half foot lead has  been struck in very rich oro. The  Littlo Joe is .working at the present on an eighteen inch to two-foot  lead, upon ore in which gold can  be seen all through.  Water has been turned on the  recently acquired Blackbird, and  this promising claim is boing  ground sluiced in an effort to pick  np the lead there.  Under the direction of Superintendent Copp work is being steadily pushed on the claims in the  group, and big developments are  expected this year. With plenty  of capital behind tho venture, and  with full confidence of operators on  the mining exchanges, Coronation  should this year do much toward  advertising the rich gold wealth of  Bridge river.���������Lillooet Prospector.  America  and   perhaps    the   most  dangerous.  Although known for many years  in a causal way as a place where  death lurked under the shadow of  the Funeral range, it was nol, until  recently that people began seriously  to think of its mineral possibilities.  Many prospectors had struck into  it as far as they were able, and  some loft their bones thero to  bleach, but modes of travel were  too precarious to permit of more  than a casual invasion.  With the coming of tho railroad  all this will be changed, and the  hardy capitalist pioneers may reap  rich rewards for their venture.

The manner in which the  soldiers of this little nation have  driven those so often described as  "the best fighters in tho world"  has been one of the marvels of  military history. How do they do  it?.  A war correspondent. Frederick  Palmer, has given tho secret. The  correspondents are not allowed at  the front, so they must needs get  their information from whatever  source comes handy, and one of  their chief reliances is the wounded  who come back from the front.  Palmer asked a number of these  bow it was the Bulgars so uniformly won, and their reply was ''Na?"  which means "Fix bayonets!"  This has become a national battle  cry.  The story bears out others that  have come to tho press from Balkan battle fields. These have told  of terrific bayonet charges by the  Bulgarians, before which the  Turks havo broken and fled.  Others have added that the Bulgar  is a master of the bayonet.  Through this he does almost as  much execution as with his  machine guns.  A bullet is invisible. But a  bristling lino of steel in the hands  of stalwart and chargiug nien is  very much in evidence. If anything will strike terror into a foe  it is this. |  The bluff of the terrible Turk  has been called. His fighting  valor oozed at the "Na!" of tho  Bulgars.  It is many years ago since D. J. Robertson had  to leave Sandon. Since then he has spent his time  in Nelson, selling furniture and other truck, at such  low prices, that half the time he cannot pay the  freight, or keep the sheriff from pulling the blue  papers on him. Nobody knows how he keeps in the  ring, but Dave always comes up smiling, even when  he is selling coffins, or making a righteous roar  about graft.

Its namo is Mount Athos,  and it only came into existence a  week or two ago, when the ambassadors of tho powers decided that,  however olso tho Balkan question  is settled, Mount Athps is to be an  independent holy republic.  It is a mountain twice as high  as Ben Nevis, near Salonika, and  is certainly unique among the  countries of Europe in fact that no  woman has set foot in it for fivo  ceuturies, When, some years ago,  the Queen of Ronmania announced  her intention of visiting it, the  rulees of the holy mountain threatened to commit suicide if she persisted.  The new republic, which has a  littlo sea coast of its own, holds  another record. It is the only  state in Europe whoso national income is obtained solely by selling  eruscifixes, rosaries, amulets and  similar holy objects. As Mount  Athos contains twenty-one monasteries, the export is quito a large  one.  Tho least known of tho other  pocket countries of Europe is San  Marino, iu the heart of Italy. It  also is [a mountain, surrounded on  three sides by perpendicular cliffs.  It possesses nearly 100 castles with  an army of about one man to each  castle. Tho last time San Marino  was at war was when one general  and twenty-throe men solemnly  marched out to assist Napoleon,  who received them with full military honors.  A   little principality in Austria,  Liechtenstein, baa nominally been  at war with  Prussia   ever    since  18SG.    At any rate,    poacio  has  never been made.  "FAGGED-OUT" WOMEN  Will Find a Helpful Suggestion  In This Letter.  Overworked, run-down, "fagged  out" women who feel as though they  could hardly drag about, should profit  by Miss Richter's experience. Sho  says: "Last winter I was completely  run down and felt fagged out all tho  time, was nervous and had indigestion.  "One of my friends advised me to  take Vinol, and it has done mo great  good. The tired, worn-out feeling is  .all gone, and I am strong, vigorous  and well. The stomach trouble soon  disappeared and now I eat heartily  and havo perfect digestion. I wish  every tired, weak, nervous woman  could have Vinol, for I never spent  any money in my life that did me so  much good as that I spent for Vinol."  Marie Richter, Detroit, Mich.
