A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would onco more  like to  commune with your collateral.  SWEET SANTA CLAUS  Last week   a letter written in  Alabama, and  addressed to Santa  Clans, Greenland, B. C, was  sent  to  Greenwood,   although this city  just now is like the sunny south,  more than the ice-touched scenery of  far-oil" Greenland.    The postmaster  who is somewhat of a humorist,  gave tho letter to  us, although we  do not resemble Santa in any particular.    He   throws   his   wealth  down   chimneys,   while   we   have  ours stolen by  the farmers when  we are asleep.    He has four deer  to draw him around in a fine sleigh,  while we have not even a bull dog  left.    And, our dear, why they are  all pushing clouds with tho angels.  Santa has ice in his whiskers, while  we never have anything stronger  than maple syrup, or an irate and  partially demented subscriber.    He  studies astronomy through  an in  verted bottle,   while half of   our  time is devoted to nailing cushions  on water wagons.    Santa Clans is  a myth, a delusion  of youth, and  lives upon  spooks  and  air.    We  too, live largely upon  air,  but wo  are no delusion when thero aro any  ham and eggs in camp.    However  this is   what the littlo tot away  down  in   Alabama    Rays   in   her  touching letter:  "Dear Santa Ciatjs.��������� I want  you to bring me a doll with long  curly hair, or a rain dear, or a  picture of you. Santa Clause, you  are the sweetest man in tho world,  and I want a littlo chair, and a box  of perfume. I wish you conld live  with me, for I know you are pretty  and sweet. If it is not too much  for you to bring me.Jdon't bring  but half of it, from Margeurite  Daniel to sweet Santa Claus. I  will write you another letter."  And would you believe it,  Patricia, we were once just as innocent as that dear little girl in tho  sunny south. Thero was a time  in the early morning of our life  when we prayed to God to keep  Santa Clans from breaking his neck  until, ho reached onr house. Then  we also prayed direct to Santa  Claus and told him what to bring  us, and how many pair of socks we  had with holes on one end. We  also made doubly sure of results  by attending three Sunday Schools,  for a short time before Christmas.  Somehow or other all the years  since then we have been under impression that Santa Clans was, a  mad Scotchman, and that his real  name was Sandy Claws.  In various parts of this province,  branches of the B. C. Political  Equality League have been formed.  While this league has been formed  for the purpose of obtaining tho  franchise foV women, it has no connection with similar movements in  England or elsewhere. It is an homo  article,: and so far there has been  no rioting, bloodshed/, hair pulling  or Carrie Nation demonstrations,  Everything is going on  smoothly  and we believe ere long  the long  haired   darlings   will bo   making  crosses,   and  dropping   the   little  papers, perfumed-orotherwise, into  the ballot   box.    And   why   not?  Surely  as a class the women   of  this glorious country are equally as  intelligent, and more so, than many  male voters we have in this province.    Tho one objection to giving  women votes is that they, are guided  more   by  sentiment than  reason.  The heart and not the head would  be their pilot at the crossing of the  ballots.    Without trial nothing can  be tested. Give the ladies a chance,  and if they make good the world  will be brighter and more sober.  tree, for instance, to examine, an'a-  lyzo';,"and know it through and  through, is science, -not art. Art  is to reproduce truthfully the effect  the tree makes on you.  You may make but an irregular  blotch as a tree-picture which may  be vastly more true,, in art, than a  photograph.  So in literature the point is to  tell exactly what you feel, so as to  awaken the same impressions in  tho reader.  Often this is done in the fewest  words. Hero lies tho supremacy of  Wordsworth. Take thoso two  lines:  But she Is in her grave, and oh  The difference to mo!'  How consummately those simple  words depict tho emotion!  Scionco is tho truth about objects  Art is tho truth about yourself.���������  Frank Crane.  The Squaw Man  In America just now thero i  a Russian woman dancer who receives a salary of 86,000 a week for  dancing on tho stage. So far the  Methodist parsons havo not been  able to convince her that dancing  is sinful, and belongs to tho things  that are evil.  After all Roosevelt is a great  man. He delivered a stirring  speech with only ono shot in him,  and we know hundreds of people,  who could not talk half as well,  even if thoy had a dozen shots in  them.  Some women aro wonders.

It must be nearly a month now  since the Merritt News had a new  editor. Perhaps the last ono has  been chained.'  One of tho popular songs about  this timo of the year is, "Will You  Love Me When My Feet Are  Cold."*  We would rather be a frog, and  liye upon the sweat of a green  swamp, than be false to a friend.

And the matter is simpler than  you would suppose. For tho truth  you are to tell is not tho truth  about the object you depict, which  probably neither yon nor any man  can know, but tho truth about the  impression it makes on you.

He is known as Travcrs  and is educated and accomplished.  Narrating the romatic story of  the scion of nobility, who is now a  squaw man, as it is told by a pioneer of the district, visiting in Edmonton, the Capital says:  "Travers was ono of those unfortunates known in the old country among the higher closes as 'a  younger son.' When sixteen years  of age his family shipped him off to  South Africa, where he served five  years in the Mounted Rifles. Returning to England at tho end of  his timo the life of his set palled  upon him. Tlie years spent in the  wild free life of the veldt had  awakened tho wanderlust in his  heart, and after a week at home  Travers was once more ocean  bound, this time for Canada.  "Arriving in Edmonton he joined  tho Royal Northwest Mounted  Police and was shortly assigned to  a post in the North country.  Travers proved himself a splendid  officer, so invaluable that his superiors for a long time over-looked  his failing for liquor. But finally  ho was sent farther north, where  there is no liquor nor white women.  "There he came almost daily in  contact with Indians and breeds;  in fact, they were his only eompan-  ionsj&nd being a man with red blood  in his veins he fell to the charms of  an Indian girl, who, according to  white traders in the country, is the  most beautiful woman in the remote region,  "Within the last year the clergy  began to get in to the upper country more frequently   than  before  aud ono of tho newer kind, who  failed to  understand the ways of  the North, raised his voice against  Travers and his common-law wife.  Travers and   tho   native   woman  wero married   shortly   afterwards  with allthe benefit of tho clergy.  "Soon after this event Travers,  the mounted policeman,  came to  headquarters with a prisoner,  and  after delivering his charge he was  himself placed under arrest   and  lodged in the guard house without  his spurs.   The disgrace of being  'cashiered' from the service faced  Travers and would have been carried out only for one thing.  ,   "Several    months     previously  Travers had applied to buy himself  out of service, and when ho faced  his  superior officer ho  protested  against  tho  proceedings.    Guessing shrewdly, Travers figured that  his application  by that time must  be nearly first upon tho list and ho  stated tho fact to the commanding  officer.   Tho records wero searched  and Travers found to be right.   Ho  was allowed to leave.  "Travers returned to his home  in the North and took np the life  of a trapper, but a great change  had come over the country. Many  chechaccos had come in and these  white people, unlike tho oldtimers,  closed their doors against the young  man and his native wife. In a  land where he had once been popular he now found himself looked  upon with disfavor by the newcomers. For months ho braved  tho coldness of these settlers���������then  packed his belongings and with his  wife and child traveled farther  into the north country, where creed  and color do not matter."  A Town's Growth  Is entirely a matter of tho enterprise of tho business men. In  every district and in every province  can be found towns that are continually forging ahead, while others  in tho same vicinity remain practically at a stand still and accomplish nothing in tho way of improvements or advancements. In  every case the fault can be found  to rest, not with the town, but  with the people themselves.  The reason why some towns  grow is because they have men in  them with push and energy who  are not afraid to spend their time,  energy and money in anything  that will boom, aud benefit the  town. They have confidence  enough in their town to erect substantial and modern buildings arid  residences and work for public improvement in the same order.  They organize stock companies and  establish factories, induce industrial enterprises to locate and use  every means to further the best  interests of the town.. Their work  is never considered finished aud  the accomplishment of ono thing  is only an incentive of another.  On the other hand the town that  does not get ahead will bo found to  be dominated by either a set of  men who are perfectly satisfied  with their surroundings or who are  afraid somebody else will bo benefitted in the event something is  started, consequently no effort of  any kind is mado by- this class for  those two reasons. If some men,  or set of men, endeavor to start  something, they aro met by opposition and discouragement and it is  up hill work all tho way and very  often failure.  Every town, however has a certain progressive element which  hopes for tho turn of tho tide when  it will go forward by leaps aud  bounds and occupy a position of  importance along with other numerous advantages which goes to  make a good town in every sense  the word implies. But this stage  cannot be accomplished by mere  wishes or suggestions. It can only  come from harmony in purpose  and action and tho eternal vigilance  of its citizens. The town with  those things will continue to grow  and improve, bnt the town without them can be expected to remain in a state of lethargy indefinitely without affording its residents anything but a mere existence. - Summerland Review.  Asylum farm expressed himself as  delighted:, with tlie results. "In  my opinion," he said, "It was far  and away the best sale of stock-  ever held in Western Canada or on  the Pacific coast. The prices realized exceeded thoso obtained at the  famous Syracuse sale at New York.  It was a wonderful proof of the  splendid demand for tho best dairy  cattle and horses in the Fraser  valley aDd the whole province, and  also of tho unexampled opportunities before the dairy farmer around  Now Westminster and throughout  the valley.  Tho average price received for  tho cows,* all Holstoiu-Fresiaians,  was $610.66 a record for tho Do-  minion; for heifer calves 8226.66  aud for bull calves 8285.41. Ovor  817,000 was realized by the whole  sale.  Among the distinguished purchasers wero Hon. Price Eliison,  Minister of Finance and Agriculture, and Hon. Jas. Dunsmiiir.  Just after tho . sale was closed tho  latter gentleman paid 8600 for a  bull calf only throe weeks old.  The horses also obtained splendid prices. One of the best sales  was that of "Lady Laurier" to  Hon. Price Ellison for 8650.  Eleven hundred and ten dollars  were paid by Mr. MacKenson for  the pair, Queenie Carruchan and  Prince of Carruchan.  WESTERN -���������'- HOTELS.

ARG������   TONNEL  Valuable Stock  The highest price ever paid in  Canada for a cow, namely $1,275  was given by Mr. Thompson of  Dewdnoy for Madam Posh at the  first B. C. Provincial government  sale of pure bred stock held at tho  Coquitlam Asylum farm near New  Westminster on November 12th.  Great interest was shown in the  whole sale and a crowd of over two  hundred farmers from all over tho  province wore present. Bidding  was of tho keenest nature and a  record average price for dairy cows  for the Dominion of Canada was  established beside" that for the individual cow.  Speaking of tho sale Dr. O. E.  Dohorty,   Superintendent   of   tho  In the state of pure savagery  no man depended upon others.  Today there is scarcely ono man  in ten millions who does not depend definitely upon the services  of others for part of his substeh-  ance. In return it is necessary for  him to repay in kind.  The art of serving others has become tho science of existence.  Sometimes this service is direct  and personal. In other cases a  man renders it by becoming part of  a vast industrial machine. But always it is ennobling.  It is only when a man attempts  to reap where he has not sown that  he becomes a parasite���������and to be a  parasite is to bea criminal,whether  the unearned has come through inheritance or burglary.  To have the right to eat you  must earn yoar food, and this  means service given in exchange  to those who serve you.  To earn bread by the sweat of  the brow is not only necessary; it  is magnificent. It is the badge of  civilization for men and nations  progressive only in proportion as  they labor.  There is no surer death sentence  to civilization and commercial  enterprise than a warm climate  where men may live without effort;  and to revert quickly to the baboon  and the ring-tail it is necessary to  remain idle.  The Robin Hoods and Jesso  Jameses of history wero different  from tho idle rich of today only in  the fact that their methods wero  moro romantic. The idea is the  same. It is to get something without giving anything in return.  The workings of the Argo  mine are only a short distance  from the centre of Greenwood  making it easy for tourists and  strangers to see a mine in full  operation. The indications are  that the Argo will eventually  become a great mine, and add  materially to the prosperity of  the entire district. Come up  and see it for yourself.  OLA LOFSTAD  President  JAMES McCRDATH  Secretary.  Service means progress, and the  men who grow are the ones who  makes themselves useful.' Judged  from the cashier's standpoint, some  of these are overpaid and some are  ill-rewarded, but, measured by a  standard that is more important,  tneir reward is automatically complete.  The man who wants more than  he earns is a hog. The one who  wants something without earning  anything is a heart at thief���������and  both are fundamentally heathen  and contemptible.  The only noble ideal of life is the  ideal of service. ���������Harlan Bead.  When you want a headstone or  monument write to the Kootenay  Monumental Works, Nelson, B.C.  Much Good Land  Although Greenwood is generally  regarded as a purely mining district on account largely of the  operations of the British Columbia  Copper company which has its  smelter located at that city it has a  great future as a fruit growing and  agricultural section, remarked I.  H. Hallett, recently to tho Nelson  News.  The second annual fruit fair at  Greenwood this yoar demonstrated  beyond doubt tho agricultural pos  sibilities of the surrounding conn-  try, he said, Qand astonished many  who for the first time learned that  fruitgrowing and mixed farming  was being placed on a sure foundation in the district and that the  land waB being developed success-  folly.  There are thousands of acres of  good agricultural land, some of the  best of which is on the mountain  sides considerably abov e the altitude of the valley continued Mr.  Hallett, while the splendid local  market afforded by the mines and  smelter obviated any danger of the  rancher being unable to sell his  produce at good prices.  The development of the land in  the district, he said, bad been retarded considerably by the fact  that' its agricultural possibilities  were not generally known, although this condition had resulted  in keeping down prices so that the  new settler had an opportunity to  purchase a ranch nt the most  reasonable of figures.

A handsome young  cabby grabbed the valises, put them  In the cab, helped* me in, and started  off.  "'I want to go to the station,' I  told him as we went along, 'I'm going  home.'  "He slowed up, rested his left hand  on the back of the seat, turned half  way around ,and said smilingly ln  French:  '"You want to go to Pompeii?'  "'No!' I cried. 'I want to go to  the station. I am starting for home,  for America, for home!'  "'I'll take you to'Pompeii,' he offered graciously, 'for 8 lire.'  "t braced myself for the conflict.  "'I want to go home,'-1 declared.  If I went to. Pompeii, I .wouldn't go  ovor that old road anyway. I'd go by  train. That's the same road you take  to Vesuvius. I was over it the day  before yesterday. It is full of beggars and ruts.'  "My driver paid not the slightest  attention. Instead he pointed proudly  to a-passing cabby.

I'm going home.'  "He drove awhile, ihen turned and  smiled at me again.  "'This road takes you to tho station,' he said, 'and to Pompeii, too.  I'll take you to Pompeii for 6 lire. A'  whole lone; day, a handsome driver,  a fine ccriage, and all to yourself  for 6 lire,' he summed up, flashing a  triumphant face full-'upon me.  "'If you gave me the cab and the  harness and-the horse thrown'in,' I  wailed, 'I wouldn't go. You couldn't  pay me to go, I know that old road.  Besides, I want to start for home.  Amerike! Home!'  "He drove and drove! I got absorbed in the. things we passed.

There were the dogs,  cats, the chickens, and now and then  a proud turkey, Ignominiously tied,  far from barnyards and Its kind, by a  string to a post.  "I didn't know which I pitted most,  the babies ln training for cripples  swaddled so, their tiny limbs so unnaturally bound, the unwashed cats  and dogs, or the turkeys in chains.

The driver flung a .bright look at me.  "'Do you see that man?' he asked.  "'Yes,' I answered.  "���������Well, he's my  brother,'  gloated  he.  He seemed to hare an oversupply of  brothers, but he endeavored to compensate for bringing me out of my  way for five lire by showing me the  sights.  "He pointed out all the pictures of  the saints by the roadside, the crucifixes on the walls, the Holy Virgins  at the corners of the lead-colored  houses, until at last the wide sweep  of level country where the dust and  asheB of the burled city were began  to show.  "Arrived there, a babbling guide  hurried me through with the velocity  of a whirlwind, showed me broken  columns, old fountains, Madusa heads  with the faces worn away by hands  long since ashes, the hurled dog, Its  mouth in the attitude of barking,  prints of chariot wheels, gray walls  through the apertures of which the  smoky peak of the mountain that had  done all the harm glowed purple,  and hurried, me out again through the  gate to my cab.

MINING NEWS   |  oooooooooooooooooooboooooo  Chas. Camsell, who lias given  much attention to tho Similkameen  and Tulameen districts during tho  last four or live years, included in  liis ollicial report for the year 1911,  recently made public, tho following  notes on the occurrence of diamonds at Tulameen and Scottie  creek, tlio latter near Ashcroft:  "At the beginning of the season  in tlie Tulameen district, where  field work had been carried out  the proceeding year, and where an  interesting discovery of diamonds  was made in the peradotite of that  district, the place was again visited  for the purpose of searching in the  gravels of the streams and other  places for diamonds of a larger size  than thoso previously found in the  solid rock. The season of the year  at which the examination was  made was not favorable for such  ' vjork, because the streams wero at  high-water stage, and the most  likely gravels could not be reached.  Nevertheless some tests both on  the gravels in the stream beds and  on tlie decomposed rock which was  already known to contain diamonds. Concentrates obtained by  panning from each of there locations were submitted to R. A. A.  Johnston, of the Canada Depart-  menfc of Mines, for examination,  and in both samples Mr. Johnston  was able to detect diamonds, not,  however, of a commercial size.  "In this connection some work  was also done, toward the close,  on Scottie creek, a tributary of the  Bonaparte rivor, near Ashcroft,  where diamonds are known to  occur under similar conditions;  aud here, also, no diamonds larger  than those previously found in the  rock in place were obtained from  the gravels."  H. Osgood and Wm. Willis. These  gentlemen   are   not   in   the   well  drilling business.    They had another object in view when they assumed the exoupse of shipping in  such a bulky piece of machinery  all the way  from  Seattle, and it  has been ascertained that the pur-  posois to thoroughly  prospect tho  shores and bed of the Similkameen  from tho international line to  the  falls.    It is placer gold  that they  are looking for. ��������� That part of the  Similkameen river over which  investigation is now being made was  worked,   and   worked profitably,  for   gold   over   Jifty    years    ago.  Siuce that timo littlo placer mining  has   been   carried   on   along   the  stream, although prospectors havo  used the pan and cradle from time  to timo in a perfunctory  manner.  Gold lias always been  recovered,  but not in sufficient quantities to  encourage steady  working,   or to  create a repetition of the stampede  of '5G.    Messrs Osgood and Willis  are going at it systematically to determine if gold is  present in value  sufficient to pay for working on an  extensive   scale.     Holes   will   be  drilled to various depths in different  places    and   tho   cores   carefully  assayed.    If the promoters of the  enterprise are satisfied  with   tho  result   they   will   formulate   and  adopt plans to  extract and . save  the gold, working on  a scale that  will   pay   the  operators.    Messrs  Osgood and Willis are now stopping in Oroville, going to the scene  of operations every day or two,  closely watching the work and not-,  ing the results.    If they are satisfied there will be something doing  along the river in the way of  mining that this country has never  seen before.���������Oroville Gazette.  woman, too, she seems ta have her  knife into tho rest of womankind  who may not want to think or act  as she does. That was amply  shown in her conduct and language  towards tho lady teachers during  tho investigation last week which  ended in the dismissal of the principal. It is quite a common thing  for her to tell her male colleagues  at the Board meetings that "that  that statement is an untruth." It  may seem a rather ungallant speech  on the part of tho,chairman to remark to her at a Board meeting  last week, "Pity you weren't a  man; you'd got your nose smashed," but the mean nagging rc-  ���������maiks and unmannerly contradictions which led up to and provoked  it, makes it excusable under the  cireuinstance.���������Medley Gazette.

Some days ago a largo well drilling machine was unloaded at this  place, overhauled, reloaded on a  Hat car and taken up to Chopaka.  The appearance of the machine  started much speculation, but  those in charge knew littlo of the  purposes for which it was to be  used, or if they did they were as  mum as the machine itself. It has  been learned that the well drill  was shipped in from Seattle by F.  The Slocan Record says that a  carload of zinc ore, recently shipped from the Noble Five mine in  the Slocan, to the Oklahoma smelter netted $1,450. The Noble Five  is now shipping ten carloads of  zinc ore every month.  NELSON'S BAD EXAMPLE  If the cause of tho suffragettes  ever had any chanco of making any  advance in British Columbia that  chance will pretty well vanish with  the experience of the town of Nelson, which two years ago ventured  the experiment of electing a woman  to the School Board. Since then  the Board has lived a cat and dog  sort of an existence and both the  Board and the school have reached  a horrible state demoralization.  They have just finished the job of  firing their latest principal and his  predecessor went down as tho result of the subtle disturbing influence a few mouths before.

SYMPTOMS OF CONSUMPTION  Tough Stuff  Rev. Dr. Spencer told the people of Vancouver last week that  eighty per cent, of poverty, ninety  per cent, of crime, and sixty per  cent, of diseases is caused in this  country, and others, by the liquor  traffic. In the doctor's lecture on  the subject of "Get on the "Water.  Wagon," held in the Savoy Theatre, he said: "It costs the people of this country SO,000,000  yearly for the upkeep of their jails  and prisons, which would be empty  were it not for the sale of liquor.  In.ono year alone there are more  than $77,000,000 spent in this  country, money which, if handled  in other ways, would bring peace  and happiness as well as health to  thousands of families who aro now  suffering from the lack of support,  which is taken from them by tho  bar room.  The doctor said that in tho  Province of British Columbia there  are 800 bars, and in the city of  Vancouver eighty bar rooms. In  the province each year there  are 300 women made widows, and  1,000 die as tho result of the liquor  traffic."
