Christmas in 1 Hospital?

Christmas in the hospital���to the
lover of turkey and plum pudding
this looks a dreary subject indeed.
Much depends on circumstances
however, and visitors at the Sisters
Hospital last week saw nothing to
suggest pain or melancholy-
nothing but'good humor everywhere
As a matter of fact the patients
seemed to. have a joke on the rest of
the community. The friends from
outside came with soft words iand
heavy parcels to sympathize in
their alleged sufferings, ��� They
went away with a growing conviction that indisposition at Xmas
time is not such a misfortune as
might be supposed.
Christmas Eve was celebrated
in proper style. All the patients
were able to participate in the general enjoyment and nobody was
overlooked in the distribution of
gifts from the tree. Again on Saturday afternoon some fifty children representing all denominations
were entertained by the Sisters.
The boys and girls did not take
'long'-tc'inakV^.thfcigs.^inerry > and,;
what with games, competitions,
songs and recitations, a very lively
time was passed.
Santa Clans arrived early in the
evening and had a warm time distributing the presents from the
prettily decorated tree. Every
child went away with a look of
supreme contentment,' so "we took
it for granted that Santa's efforts
to please were'not in vain.
Too much cannot be said in
praise of theSisterswhose aim^JbJs
time, as at all times, makes life in
the hospital pleasant for everyone.
Altogether, the Sacred Heart Hospital is one of the most comfortable
and home-like institutions in the
weatand is deserving of the strongest support the district can afford.

The Smelter Fire
/
On"Saturday' morning- at 1:10,
the bricks around the jacket on the'
end of the B. C. Copper Co'8 No.
1 furnace blew out. The molten
mass of slag and matte poured
into the basement of the hoist, between the furnace and; charge
floors. The red hot stream exploded when it' struck the water
and set fire to t'h'e silica bin. It
destroyed the .bin and a 40 h. p.
motor tiBed to drive the clay mill,
a small roll crusher, and badly
burned the trestle timbers of the
charge track. The smelter whistles
sounded the alarm, but the city
fire alarm bell was out of order, a
fact that caused a slight dels}' in
bringing the brigade to the blaze.
The smelter employees qnickly
had nine streams playing on the
blaze, and when the city brigade
got into action the danger soon
melted away. The power house
was onlyQ10 yards from the fire,
and the saving of it reflects great
credit upon every man who assisted
in subduing the conflagration.
The saving of the power house
meant a great deal to Greenwood.
If it had burned the smelter would
have had to close down for many
months. As it was Greenwood's
greatest industry only stopped

How It Was Done
A Learned Cat
If you want to live a long time
take an active interest in affairs of
human interest, and do all things
in moderation.
Fear and imagination cause
people to flee when there iB no
danger. The terrible calamity in
Calumet on Christmas Eve proves
the truth of this assertion.
Let us so live during the year,
that it will not be necessary at any
time, to wofully exclaim, "Ob,
God! Turn back the universe, and
give me yesterday.,,    '
Eveky time we see a Canadian
postage stamp we think of that
famous   oration,    entitled,     "To
stick or not
question."
to stick! That is the
The Grand Forks Sun says that
a man who drinks Tom and Jerry
in a barroom generally takes more
than one drink, because a goose
cannot stand on one foot.
It has been said that three
things make a nation great. Fertile fields, intelligent workers and
good roads. In B.C. we have
made a good start towards greatness. We have Borne of the beet
roads in the world.
No one knows the birthday of
Christ but the churches preach
that it was the 25th of December,
hence the origin of the word
Christmas, which means mass for
Christ. Believing that Christ was
born on December 25 is just as
much a delusion to many adults,
as Santa Claua is to very young
children.

City of Potosi, Bolivia
The wonderful mountain, on the
north side of which Potosi iB built,
that produced so many millions in
the days gone by, still continues to
produce, but on a small scale. It
is practically owned and monopolized by two French firms, and
mining is done in a feeble, fitful
way. The mining laws also that
govern property rights in the
mountain and vicinity, are different from those in vogue in. other
parts of the country and lead to
innumerable conflicts, trouble and
confusion of all kinds. If one
good strong company came in and
bought all the conflicting interests,
I believe that there is yet money
to be made here, although all my
information thus far has been
gleaned second-hand and is to be
treated as such.
Looking south from the town
the hill or mountain has had the
appearance of a huge triangle
whose base is approximately tvrf.ee
its height. It is a wonderful
sight. The rays from the sun
shining on the thousands of old
dumps give it almost the v&reigated
colors of the rainbow, due to the
large amount of iron in the rocks of
which it is composed.
This city bas a presenl population of about 35,000 people. In
the colonial days, and at the height
of its posterity, it counted about
160,000 inhabitants. It Ea -the capital of the department of the same
name and is situated ISO km. from

Mr. Knight is a drayman at
Howell, Michigan, who is very
fond of his pets, among which are
his horse and a big yellow tiger
cat which is also a special pet of
his wife. His barns tands but a
few yards from his house. Between the two is a little open
space wherin Mr. Knight is in the
habit of throwing grain for the
robins when he feeds his horse.
The cat at first somewhat of a trial
at these feeding times, but in a
little while she learned that the
robins had rights there as sacred
as her own, and she would let
them alone when they came to eat.
The birds ceased to fear her and
would eat quietly and allow her to
walk right in among them while
they were doing so. The peculiar
part is that the puss knew the
difference between robins and sparrows and if a sparrow alighted on
the feeding ground either with the
robins or alone, puss very quietly
drove him away or had him for her
dinner. <>       ���,

family of little chicks which were
transferred to a basket behind the
kitchen stove, to grow up. One
night they were all missing from
tne basket. As puss was the only
living creature about while Mrs.
Knight was out of the room, the
cat was of course accused. In a
few minutes the peeping of a
chicken attracted attention. Investigation showed that puss had
them.all.safe with her kitten and
was doing her best to mother them.
Without Food 28 Days
A remarkable feat of involuntary fasting was performed 12
years ago by a corporal in a regiment of French colonial infantry.
On his way to work one morning a
man. heard cries proceeding from a
disused mine near Brest. At the
bottom of an excavation nearly 100
feet deep Corporal Andre Desrats
was found in so weak a condition
that he could hardly articulate a
word. When he recovered his
rescuers learned that after accidentally falling into the mine, Desrats had been imprisoned for 28
days without anything to eat or
drink. Bub a pig can beat a man.
Dr. W. B. Carpenter, in his
manuel pi Physiology," records
that a pig weighing 160 pounds
was emtombed by the fall of a portion of the chalk cliffs at Dover.
How easily poetic ideas come to
some people. A woman at Alameda, California, rushes into print
and says:   \
Tlie Panama canal is done.
Man's hand completes what God begun.
And turns two mighty seas in one."
Some fellow in Nevada, touched
by the Muse, exclaims:
' 'The Panama canal is did;
God made, but man removed the lid,
And two great seas together slid."
The highest mountain on the
Globe is not, as is generally supposed, Mb. Everest, that honor belonging Co a lofty peak named MtjJ
Hercules, on the Isle of Papua,
New Guinea, discovered by Capt.
Lawson in 1881. According to
Lawson, this monster is 32,763
feet in height, being 3.781 feet
higher than Mt. Everest, which is
only 29.000 feet above the level of
the Indian ocean.

There appears to be a lament
able lack of knowledge in some
quarter* on the natural resources
of Canada. Iu an article in the
Journal of the Koyal, Colonial Institute, by J. Watson Grice, on
the oil resources of the British
Empire, in connection with which
it 1b proposed to conduct an investigation under the auspices of
the British Government, only casual mention was made of the
southern part of the Athabasca-
Peace-Mackenzie field. Yet the
favorable conditions of this field
have been noted by so eminent
an autnority on oil as Sir Boverton
Redwood, in addition to all tie
records of the Geological Survey of
Canada.
In a recent address on this field
Cass. Camsell, of the Geological
Survey, said: "Here is one of the
largest possible oil-bearing country
yet unexplored on the face of the
globe, and from my own knowledge
of the region I am convinced that
important oil fields will some day
be discovered in it." No scientific man knows that country better than Mr. Camsell and when be
expresses an opinion so favorable
to the field it ought to carry
weight with the Colonial Institute, j

All signs point to a great
mining revival in B. C. and
particularly in the Greenwood
district. In the vicinity of
Greenwood there are vast
bodies of gold, silver and
copper ores that have not yet
been touched. When they
are Greenwood may become
a second Butte. The Argo is

Worthy of the world's
best music
To most of us the chance to hear human playing
of good music comes infrequently. Only in the
great cities are the appetites of the music-hungry
satisfied. Even then one can hear but a small
part of all the worth while concerts.
Fortunately for those who love the masters of the past, and who
have the judgment to recognize in present day composers the
masters of the future, there is the Edison
Phonograph. It is worthy of Wagner, of
Bach, of Puccini. The clear, sweet tone,
remarkable in its purity, is simply a translation of human music into your own home.
Unless you have heard the newest Edisons,
you have no conception of their wonderful
mellow quality. , You never realized that
such beauty could be applied to sound.
Ask your Edison dealer to play one of
the Blue Amberol Records���then you will
know that the whole world of good music
���past and present���is open to you. EdisonAmberolal

A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Delight and pathos .are inextricably mingled with the
thought of New Year's day. It is only a conventional
point of time; any other would do as well. Every day
closes an old year, and begins a new one, but for all that
we cannot help feeling that this day, which is agreed upon
throughout Christendom for the beginning of a new year,
is somewhat unique. The pathos comes from'a review of
the past, and from the sense that another notch has been
cut for us on the stick of time. The delight arises from
the anticipation of the new and better experiences of the
year to come. What interest any rational person could
have in having his fortune told is a mystery. The zest
and charm of life consist largely in thefact that each day
is like ,a new page in the story. If you wish to enjoy your
book you do not, when it is half read, turn to the closing
chapter to discover how it turns out. You do not thank
anyone for telling you the plot. It is so with life. There
is infinite satisfaction with each day's contribution to the
record. You do not want to anticipate it. It would be a
curse if anyone could tell you just what the year would
bring. It is just as reasonable to suppose that the year
will be happy as sad. Who can tell? Who can control
that?    That is the reason for a happy new year.'
*     *     *
A GLANCE BACKWARD.
As you turn the corner into the new year, look back a
minute over the road you have been travelling the past
year. It seemed a long way when you started out, but it
has been traversed at last. See the line of that road ever
winding on, while twisting here and there. Do you remember that boggy place into which you strayed? How
you promised yourself in your better moments, "I will turn
over a new leaf. "Have you been true to yourself? If not*
once more before you step into the pure New Year, renew
your promises to your better natures] Don't stray, but
linger near the pleasant outlooks, keep near the bits of
high ground where you breath purer air and can see afar
off Heaven's high hills of blue, make the motive pure work
for the object. Be diligent in seeking better ways and in
twelve more short months, take another retrospective
glance and see how much pleased you will be with yourself
how much more of goodness and genuine worth this world
will seem to possess.   . ��� ....,,

At this season of year with such
sudden changes, it is so easy to take
cold, and almost before one is aware
there is inflammation in the bronchial
tubes���a hard cough and unless
checked- in time chronic pulmonary
troubles may result.
Townseni Young of Royersford,
Pa., says: "A severe bronchial trouble contracted caused me much difficulty about breathing. My chest felt
clogged up and there was considerable soreness. I tried different remedies -without help; but I am glad to
Bay that VInol cured my bronchial
trouble which had lasted for three
months. My breathing is all right
and the soreness entirely gone from
my chest."
Vinol contains the curative, healing
principles of fresh cods' livers (without oil) and tonic iron. We guarantee it to be delicious in taste and to
satisfy you with its medicinal effects.

At Swamp point the Granby
company have a force of about
thirty^men employed getting out
lime, which is to be used as a flax
for the Hidden Creek ore. The
Swamp Point property was purchased by the Granby company
last summer from Hartley &
Moult. The rock iB extracted by
the gloryhole process, and it is
estimated that it can be placed in
tbe bunkers at the smelter at a
cost of 50 cents per ton. The tunnels have already been driven,
from which raises will be put to
the surface" A first-class wharf
has been constructed, and everything will be in shape to ship in
the immediate future.
AVhich promises to be one of the
most attractive mining properties
in the Kamloops district was recently secured by a syndicate of
Calgary business men. The property comprises 32 claims, 'situate
10 miles south of Sicamons Junction on the C.P.E., and directly
on the line of the Okanagan &
SicamouB railway, where it runs
beside Mara lake. The values
occur in large dykes, of which
there are several all well defined
lying in a clean formation of gneiss
and schist, with an iron capping
which is leached off near the lake
shore, making an exposure of tbe
orebody in addition to the several
outcroppings in different parts of
the property. The property was
sampled recently, as thoroughly as
present workings would admit, and
the samples sent to several Eastern universities and to two American assayers. Ab all data is not
yet to hand the owners do not care
to make a definite announcement,
but such assays as have been completed assure the owners of a very
attractive prospect. The property
is not opened ap, the work so far
accomplished being limited to several prospect shafts and a tunnel.
The property is splendidly situated
for cheap mining, being on tbe
railway line and having an abundance of timber on the property.
The ore, all samples of which return the four metals���gold, silver,
copper and iron, will be treated by
concentration in the first instance.
The improvement in the gold
production of British Columbia
last year is shown in the fact that
the Dominion assay office, at Vancouver, has treated nearly 500 per
cent, more gold than two years ago,
when the receipts of the office
amounted to $974,077.14, of which
gold to the value of $831,803.20
was produced in the province.
The Dominion Assay office only
receives the gold from the placers
or the bullion from the free-milling
plants and from the refinery at
Trail smelter. Tbe bulk of the
gold production is from the gold
copper ores which ship their metal
product to the electrolytic refiner
ies of the east.
Kamloops citizens have fibown
their business capabilities in investing in oil lands in the Kootenays.
For months the eyes of the oil
world have been eagerlyjwatching
tbe Flathead district, East Kootenay, and recent authentic reports
from that region stamp it a regular
oil field that will show most won
derfnl returns.
a
The presence of oil shales and
oil at the surface over an area extending seventy miles from east to
west and twelve to {fourteen miles
from north to south in the Flathead
district justifies the great things
expected of the section in the very
near future.
The real development work of
the Flathead district has been done
by the British Colombia Oil and
Coal Development Company, limited, whose operations have reached
the last stage, and it now seems
certain that oil will very soon be
Btruck in a deep well. This company Bhows great accivity and their
plan is to develop the property to
an advanced stage by the time the
railroad reaches the district.
The company at considerable expense has taken into ttie property
an-up-to-date standard rig which
is capable of reaching to a depth of
4500 feet. Some considerable drilling has been done at a location
where they are sinking their deep
wells.
The contractors have taken in
another 1000 foot Keystone drill
and work has been commenced on
the four sites located by William
Blakemore, a geologist of note and
authority who recently visited the
property and made a report on the
same saying that, "It is impossible
that such wide spread evidences of
oil should exist except in a well defined oil district; that there is an
abundance of evidence to juBtify
the designation of the Sage Creek
and Flathead Valleys as an oil district," and that after carefully considering all the data rendered
available by his inpection of the
British Columbia Oil and Coal Development Company's property he
arrived at the following conclusions:
"That your property on Sage
Creek is in the most favorable position iu a defined oil bearing district.
"That there no physical or geological difficulties in the way of
making such a proof; it iB*only4the
question of expenditure rightly
directrd.
"That the work you have already done has distinctly advanced
your knowledge of general conditions and has not only rendered
these conditions more reliable but
has pointed the way for a certain
solution of the problem."
The possibilities of the Flathead
district have caused columns of
comment over Canada and tbe
United States, the Spokesman-Review of Spokane, Washington, in
its issue of November 14, contains
the following;���^!
"An oil exchange similar to
those maintained in the financial
centres adjacent to the eastern and
southern oil fields, is planned for
Spokane if the oil discoveries in
the Sage Creek region in British
Columbia, near the international
boundary line between Montana
and the Canadian provinces develop
as is predicted they will by oil experts from all over the continent
who have examined them in the
last few months. Local men,
among them Walter J. Nicholls,
bond, investment and mining
broker, are keeping closely in touch
with the situation, prepared to organize an exchange so soon as they
are convinced that conditions justify it.
The Sage Creek fields, in close
proximity to large land holdings,
regarded as promising oil districts
are controlled by the British Col
umbia Oil and * Coal Development
Company, capitalized for 8000
shares at $50 par value. Several
Spokane capitalists are stockholders
in the company, and it is estimated that approximately $50,000 of
local capital has been invested in
the enterprize in the last three
months.
J. O. Stewart, manager of the
Diamond Rubber Company, [an
eastern oil expert, says:
"I have inspected most of the
Califorian oil fields and I regard
the prospects in Sage Creek more
promidng than any district I ever
visited. The natural formation of
the region is ideally adapted to the
collecting of oil in immense subterranean reservoirs and I feel
confident that development now
under way will result in the opening of commercial wells.
"The oil has a paraffin base and
analysiB shows 71 per cent, naph
tha, gasoline and kerosene, 18 per
cent, lubricants and 11 per cent.
paraffin residue, suitable for a
number of byproducts.
"William Blakemore, of Victoria, B.C., provincial consulting
engineer and geologist, visited the
district several months ago and
selected a sight for the wells, one
of which is already down 550 feet,
but operations have been suspended
there awaiting the arivial from the
East of casing. The well is 12-
inch bore for 300 feet and 10 inches
the rest of the way. Bed rock has
not been encountered and we will
continue the 10-inch bore nntil it
is reached.
"Equipment for another drilling
outfit was on the ground when we
left and should be assembled and
ready to operate now. This will
bs put in commission sinking six
mile radius of the main seepage,
from which the samples we brought
back were taken, and the work
will be continued dnring the winter. Quarters for the men were
being prepared while we were
there. These wells will be eight
inches in diameter and will be
sunk to bedrock.
"Dr. G. M, Dawson of Ottawa,
Dominion geologist surveyor, who
made an exhaustive examination
of the region reported that the indications were sufficiently promising to warrant extensive development, and I. E. Segur, of San
Francisco, formerly a partner in
the oil fields of California with
Rudolph Spreckles, who also was
there about a year ago, stated that
he regarded the surface oil as equal
to the best in Pennsylvania and
predicted that a good flow would
be obtained within reasonable
depth. He characterized the field
as the most promising he knew of
anywhere.
"D. O. Corbin has agreed to
extend his railway line from Corbin south through the district to
connect with the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul near the international boundary, 45 miles, as
soon as oil in commercial quantities is secured, and the Milwaukee
company is planning to invade the
region also. ��� "Kamloops Standard."
The Missouri Girl
WITH "ZEKB" & "DAISY" NEW STAB
THEATRE, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 7TH
The Missouri Girl, which will be
the attraction at the new Star
Theatre has been on the road continuously for fifteen years and for
the past six years two companies
have been presenting this ever
popular play, It has been seen in
every state and territory in the
union, with possibly two exceptions, and last seaBon one company toured Canada, where the
play met with the same remarkable reception that has characterized its toure of the United States.
The popularity of the play is not
limited to any particular section.
Wherever it goes it is the same
story, crowded houses and delighted audiences.
Other plays that have been before the public deteriorate and
frequently managers foist inferior
companies on the public with low
salaried actors in the principal
roles. Fred Raymond has always
kept his companies up to the stan
dard   and that  is  probably   the
reason for his remarkable euccess
with this sterling comedy.
Tear after year the companies
visit the various cities fortunate
enough to be on their routes and
invariably the companies are equal
to those of previous years and from
time to time improvements are being made that strengthens the organization.
This season the vaudeville portion of the show has received Mr.
Raymond's careful attention, and
the country "birthday party"
offers an opportunity for specialties
that has been taken advantage of.
rive first-class vaudeville numbers
Add great strength to the performance. The company carry four
acts of special scenery that will fit
the local stage.
