Do you always use your Telephone?
Travelling, even a short distance, takes
time. Your telephone saves minutes and saves
energy. It matters not whether the party you
want is one mile or a hundred miles away, the
telephone takes you in a moment.
Don't travel miles to do business, speak for
a few moments by telephone. Use the tele/
phone instead of writing, written communica/
tions lack the directness of conversation.

���" Crop Very Light
Strawberry shipments from all
points in tbe Creston Valley up to
atid including the noon shipping
yesterday, makes a total of 6,680
crates that have gone east.
Of these 4,258 were shipped from
Wynndei, five straight cars being
in the lot. The balance of 2,422
crates are pretty well distributed
over Creston, Erickson, Canyon,
Alice Siding and the Reed &
Mather stop.
Possibly one more carload will
be sent from Wynndei, bnt'this
depends entirely on the weather.
A real soaker of a rain within 48
hours would lengthen out the
season, but if nothing but the 91-
in-the-shade sort that has prevailed
all week is to happen along strawberry shipping will be over for the
year before our next issue.
While tbe yield bas been disappointingly light aud the weather
everything that it should not have
been, the prices the grower will receive are most encouraging. Yesterday the local Union was issuing
cheques for the berries shipped in
June, and* the payments were on
a basis of 33.50 per crate for the
first week's berries, and S3 a crate
for those sent out the second week.

thinks he is," says Enrico Caruso,
the world-famed tenor. "While
motoring in New York State,"
continued the great singer, "tbe

sought refuge in a farm house
while the car was being repaired.
I became friendly with the farmer,
who asked me my name, and I
told him it was Caruso.

Moke coal has been found in

��nd it in tbe cellar.
If Hiudenburg keeps on going,
he should get to Berlin in time to
eat his Christmas dinner.
The world haB always persecuted
its great pure and honest spirits,
and glorified them after they were
dead.
If you would wiu in business get
an education in advertising. In
these modern days it is a sign of
commercial apathy and ignorance
not to advertise.
A Frenchwoman of the invaded
country is sleeping in a room with
her two young daughters, when
the Germans entered the village.
A.n officer knocks and demands
lodging for thirty-five men. She
showB them other rooms, stables���
in fact plenty of accomodation.
"That won't do:" and he orders
seven men to sleep in the room
with the mother and girls. But
behind his back the men are shrugging their shoulders, as if saying,
"This is quite unnecessary," and
when he is gone they leave the
room of their own accord and go
to the stables. The woman who
was telling my informant this story
added: "It is not the men who
are bad. The men are like other
men���the same everywhere. It's
their officers, their chiefs, or,
rather, their law." It has been
this discovery from the first day of
the war, that their chiefs and their
law are noxious in the modern
world that has turned so many of
ub, humanitarians and peace-
lovers, who have no spark of original ill-will to Germany, into believers that this "law'(���this philosophy of death���must go down if
the life of nations is again to be
worth  living.���John  Galsworthy.
It is just as well to remember,
especially in matters relating to
church and Bcience, that the falsehoods we denounce today, were
the truths of long ago.
Great efforts have recently been
made to drive the devil out of
Vancouver, but he appears to be
Btrongly entrenched, and cannot be
killed or captured. He will not
disappear, until the light of reason,
and tbe spirit of goodness, drives
the bats of superstitution and
evil thoughts from the mind of
man. When that time arrives we
will be, without flesh, and float
through space in the astral form.
Years ago, when Fred Simpson
of Kamloops, and formerly the
famous "Old Man" of the Cranbrook Herald, was running a paper
in Kansas a report got abroad that
he had been drowned. His father
lived in a distant town and telegraphed to Fred as follows:
"Rumored that you have been
drowned. Wire particulars." It
is needless to say that Fred wired
his dad that the report was a gross
exaggeration, as at that time he
never touched water, even when
ife waB placid and wet.
Our Yankee-Made Empire
The American revolution, while
it robbed Britain of thirteen colonies at a stroke, taught Britains to
colonize. Until then colonies had
been regarded as nice, productive
cowb for the mother country to
milk. It was only after the failure of such policies in America
that tbe English learned better.
Spain never learned. Her empire,
once the largest on earth, has vanished completely, and for that
reason.
The new policy, dating from the
defeat of Lord Cornwallis, has developed a type of imperialism
never believed possible till then.
It has bred colonial loyalty, colonial devotion, colonial self-sacrifice.
Even India feels it. Egypt does.
South Africa beaten into submission only a few years back, fight
valiantly for England. Canada
and Australia, colonies in name,
nations in fact, will die for the
British cause. A wonderful empire! And across the whole of it
might be written: "Founded at
Yorktown, Oct. 19, 1781."
A Canadian investor in mining
Bhares recently requested the date
of tbe first dividend disbursement
by any Cobalt company, and also
the oldest company in the camp.
In reply it may be said that the
Temiskaming and Hudson Bay
Mining company was the first to
take up holdings in this district.
The company was incorporated before the discovery of silver in Cobalt and acquired a total of 340
acres. The authorized capital of
the company was $25,000 in Bhares
of $1 par value. Of the total capital, but 7,961 shares were issued.
As a result of the sale of that part
of the company's holdings known
as the Silver Queen's mine, a net
profit of $810,000 was realized.
On November 6th, 1905, a dividend of 200 per cent was declared.
This waB the first profit disbursement of any incorporated company
in the Cobalt camp.
The T. & H. B. haB been one of
the big producers of the district,
and although now apparently Hearing the end of its big career, is
nevertheless still yielding np fair
quantities of silver. Since the
payment of the initial disbursement of 200 per cent, the company has paid a total of 25,000 per
cent., enriching its shareholders to
the extent of $1,940,250. The return of 25,000 per cent on tbe capital invested is the world record.
Aggressive. Western Spirit
There may come armed resistance in Quebec to conscription.
Let it come. There are a lot of
Canadians who are decidedly of the
opinion that the time bas come to
tear up the British North America
Act and make a new start. There
are a number of things in the constitution of this country which
should be revised, and the civil
war in Quebec would create the
opportunity. Any resistance which
could be made by the men of Quebec could be taken care of in a
reasonably short time. Then the

War As A Leveler
War is a great leveler. The
London Daily Express, an ultra-
conservative organ, publishes
strong attacks on the "drones"
who have nothing better to do
these days than drive in Hyde
Park and order their maids to take
their pet dogs out for exercise. It
advocates the confiscation of tbe
horses, the conscription of tbe
coachmen, and the setting to useful work of the idlers themselves.
There is every likelihood of the
ExpreBB' suggestions being carried
out.���Milwaukee News-
Like the writer. Sid Norman,
the famous and versatile editor of
the Spokane Mining Truth loves
the beautiful, silvery Slocan. He
recently wrote and published in
his paper a word painting of the
early days, scenes, and men in the
Slocan of the long ago that is a
classic, appealing to all the bean
boiling trail blazers, who in the
beginning mingled in the formation of that great white metal
camp. Those were stirring and
romantic times, and we sometimes
wish that God would back up the
universe, and again permit ns to
see the Slocan as it was 25 years
ago.

Racical Repairs
The Boggs River & Northern
railroad was putting into effect a
most rigid regime of economy.
Locomotives were patched and repaired with old parts and pieces
until O'Leary, the shop foreman,
threatened to break down under
the strain.
To cap tbe climax, one day a
worn-out looking locomotive was
sent to the shops, and O'Leary was
told to give it a thorough examination and to report what would be
required to put in first class running shape. That same afternoon
O'Leary, having completed his inspection, dispatched the following
note to headquarters:
"No. 36���in today. To put in
complete repair: jack up her
whistle and build a new engine
underneath."
Discouraging Appreciation
The mayor of the town had been
asked, says tbe Yorkshire Post, to
asBis6 in the annual entertainment
given at Christmas to the inmates
of the parish workhouse. He consented with great complaisance,
and went made np ib Father
Christmas. For a time his antics
and pranks were the delight of the
company.
A scrap of conversation he
chanced to hear, however, pat a
damper on his enjoyment.
"Ain't he enjoyin' of hisself?"
remarked one old man to another.
"Wot a treat it is for the likes of
he! But why can't they let all the
loonies out on a night like this?"
"Well," replied the other,
"mebbe they ain't all so harmless
as this'n!"

Prominent Mexicans, men in
close touch with tbe capital, predict that Mexico will declare war
on Germany within 30 dayB. According to these men, all German
money in Mexico City. Toreeon,
Chihuahua City and other banks
will be seized as soon as war is
declared, the German boats in
Tampico and other ports will be
seized, thereby giving Mexico a
much-needed merchant fleet, and
all Germans will either be interned
or deported at once, their property
being confiscated. The Tampico
oil fields wonld be made safe for
the oil supply of the Allied fleets
by declaring a zone in which traffic
would be restricted, and the mines,
pmelters and mills opened at once
to produce munition metals for the
Allies.
