It is interesting to note that daring Mr. Pinchbeck's recent motor
trip to Barkerville, be was surprised to find a couple of Chinamen
whom he remembered over twenty
years ago, still washing gold scarcely a hundred yards distant from
the spot he last saw them in when
he left that locality so long ago. It
is twenty-seven years since Mr.
Pinchbeck's uncle and aunt left
Sheffield, England, to take up a
homestead about 120 miles up the
old Cariboo road, which spot they
reached via the States, Frisco, New
Westminster and Yale, and during
that period the old folks have not
left the immediate neighborhood
and in consequence have never set
eyes on the Canadian Pacific Bail-
way.���Kamloops Sentinel.

The Princeton Star says that
Peck McSwain has discovered that
beer can be made from the hops
of grasshoppers. Peck is now
walking from Merritt to Princeton, in order to count the number
of grasshoppers between the two
cities, so that he can estimate the
size of the brewery that will be
necessary to handle the amount
of raw material at present available.
When you hear a man sneering
at the local paper because it is
not big, cheap and newsy as the
city papers, you can safely bet he
does not squander any of his
wealth in assisting to make it
better and that generally fhe paper has done more for him than
he has for it. The man who cannot see the benefits arising from
a local newspaper is about as
much value to a town as a delinquent tax list.
A very wide-spread and distinct
dissatisfaction has been expressed
with the paucity of aid and encouragement offered to those of our
citizens who wish to go to the
front. It is obvious to the most
casual observer that even the humblest citizen should have every
opportunity to come to the aid of
his country in the hour of her
need.; :: Something must be done,
and that at once, to remedy
most undesirable condition, of
fairs.

Knight's of Pythias Social.
A large number attended the
social gathering of the local lodge
of K. of P's held in the Pythian
Castle Hall on Wednesday evening
when manygof the brothers from
Phoenix were present. The gathering was in the nature of a farewell
as many of the members from both
towns are leaviDg for various parts.
The mysteries of the third degree
was put on after which an elaborate
banquet, put up by Wm. C. Arthurs
and a splendid programme of songs,
recitations, music and speeches
were enjoyed. The chairman, Bro.
Sid Storer, in opening the program
made an appropriate address and
after welcoming the visiting brethern stated that the lodges had
gathered to say farewell to many
whom they might never see again
and he urged all the brothers to
keep up their membership no matter where they may roam. It was
a festive gathering and one long to
be remembered, but one could not
dispel the thought that many
present would never mingle again
under the Greenwood Castle Hall.
The following was the programme
and although it was of an impromptu nature every numberwas well received and many being encored:���
F. E. Elkins, speech.
H. Parker, song.
A. J. Morrison, speech.

Gun Club Shoot-
Much interest is being shown
in the Boundary in trap shooting
and several successful inter club
shoots have been held. This
week the clubs of Rock Creek,
Midway aud Greenwood held a
shoot at the local traps in which
Greenwood was victorious by the
substantial majority ot 19 birds.
Two rounds of 25 birds each were

A critical young lady was recently heard expatiating vigorously against the silly way that
women have of kissing each other
every time they get together.
She said: "If twenty women were
to meet in the street every last
one of them would have to kiss
the other nineteen, and there
would be���let me see���380 kisses
worse than thrown away, for probably in ten minutes the whole
party would separate into squads
and go off talking about each
other. When you see one of
these violent, kiss-every-tbing-iu
sight kind of a woman,:it is * safe
to set her down as a fraud, which
she generally is. If I: had my
way, kissing should be confined
to family uses aud for medicinel
purposes, \ Now, dont you put
this; my name to this or I will kiss
af-1 you right on Copper street the
! first chance I have."

About thirty subscribers were in
attendance at the meeting of the
Greenwood Agricultural Association which was held in the Star
Theatre last Eriday night. The
purpose of the meeting was to decide whether it wonld be advisable
to hold a fall fair and exhibition
this year in our present circumstances. Mr. McArthur, the president called the meeting to order
and, having explained its purpose,
called for a motion. Mr. White
laid the situation clearly before the
meeting and ably, discussed it with
all its pros and cons. He showed
that excellent progress had been
made with the collection of funds
and, while willing, to. be governed
by the majority, was most distinctly in favor of holding the fall fair.
Mayor McLaine admitted the validity of many of the plausible arguments advanced by Mr. White, but
pointed out that Canada in general
with Greenwood included too, was
on the verge of acute financial distress and every nickel would be
needed to save many from . actnal
want. On a vote it was decided to
abandon the fair this year and a
committee was appointed to collect
sufficient fands to pay off the debt
of abont $250. 'Nearly half this
sum, $112, was subscribed M once.

This is the open season for Kaisers in Europe.
None of the men who caused the
war in Europe are-on the firing line
but they are all entitled to a seat
in hell.
We would rather be a bat and
live upon the spooks of the night,
than be the mad ruler of the Teutons.
The I. W. W.'s have not yet
raised a hand to better the condition of the soldiers in Europe, who
are working overtime for starvation wages.
All people should put themselves on war rations, and waste no
food. The press can render a great
service by giving thiB wide publicity every week.
There are 70 millions of people
in Germany, chiefly fools or they
would no be led by the nose by a
madman who iB laboring under tbe
delusion that he ia a deluxe edition
of Napoleon.
War is catching like the measles.
We would not be surprised to see
civil war breakout inGermany within 60 days. It is a sure thing that
the Kaiser will have to cash in before many moons.
In England the bishops have declared war on tight skirts, and will
endeavor to drive them ont of
Great Britain. They have not yet
said anything about big fat men
wearing short pants.
Kraut, sausage and limbnrger
are the greatest allies of Germany.
Cut them out of the firing line, and
theJKaiser'sJgunmen'and strippers
of American women, would roll
into the sump as a white chip falls
into the cuspidor.
Just now the flag waver has a
steady job in Canada. Yoa find
him in every town throwing hot
air in large gusts at tbe Germans,
and begging somebody to hold his
coat until he wades in and cleans
up tb.9 enemy of the British flag.
That is as far as he goes, for when
it comes to putting np money and
blood in defense of the Empire he
is non est.

ties which he located right on  tin
FoR'centnries we have been fed
npon the wrong kind of religious
dope. When all the world becomes imbued with the religion of
love, life and troth, wars and all
other troubles will cease. The
wreck of matter and the crumbling
of empires does not fizz npon the
individual who is touched with the
divine current, and rises above the
mud. strata.
Instead of being a partner of
"Gott", we are inclined to believe
that the Kairer is Satin re-incarnated, doomed ior a certain time to
curse the earth, until Europe is
painted red, amid the shrieks of
dying men, the moanB of starving
women, and the tears of little
children. Doubly damned must
eventually be the human syphax,
who has bathed tbe world in
blood and tears.
The warring nations in Europe
are all Christians, and have a vast
number of priests and parsons
steadily praying to God to let them
win. These same clergymen preach
that God is all powerful and can
do anything. If this is true then
the uncharitable will blame Him
for the awful war. Perhaps God
is deaf and cannot hear the sky
pilots, or is it possible that He is
waiting for a wireless from His
partner in Berlin.
In the Dominion a Canadian
Patriotic Fond has been started
for the purpose of seeing that families do not want who have sent a
bread winner to the war. This
fund is not far reaching enough.
It is too narrow and selfish. What
about the thousands of people who
cannot get work and have no
money? Are they to starve because they have no bread winner
at the front? In a few weeks many
thousands of men, women and
children in B.C. and other parts of
Canada will be crying for bread.
The Patriotic Fond mast be broadened so as to take in all who need
food.
The Ruth-Hope at Sandon is
still running, with seventeen men
on the payroll, and will not close

worked in the vicinity of Sandon
are the Surprise, Noble Five, Payne
and two leases on the Reco. Development is also being done on
a number of claims in a small way.
The Capella. Apex, and California,

this ore came from, where the properties are located, what the rock

goes through tbe property the ledge
is 10 feet wide is BOlid and in

Mr. McNeil said that he had forwarded samples of the ore to the
Government minerologists at Ottawa and that he expected an assay
return in a few days. Mr. McNeil
has purchased the two camps of
