Father  Huss'eu  has spent  35 years in the Peace, (liver  country. , Spevkirig of that^'greafc 'district^ he says thrit, ifc only awaits  railway development to make the  Peace River valley  a   great  agricultural country.   Us possibilities  for wheat -growing  are  immense,  he state-;, owing,to the*-fact, that  there are no summer^ frosts as  iu  Manitoba.'   In   fact  some  of   the  valleys where the warm( Chinook  winds from tlie Paciac are felt no  show ia ever seen on  the. ground.  The Peace river, Father ^ussen  believes/ will.' become  the   great  highway fcp tho north  when   railway developmsnt reaches up to it.  It is a wonderful river   aud  navigable for almost 1,000 miles.  Iu tumoral the country abounds  in coal, mica aud gold, but little  work has been done owing 'to  transportation difficulties.   v  i.  Funeral Held Sunday.  The funeral of Geo.

' 'loe wrote it up and mentioned casually that the
victim was'drunk. 11 was true, ju«t as it was I rue
tluit Hie man was thirty-lhc joars old and worked In
the paper mill. ,   .
But he left a widow, an excellent woman much too
gocd for him. and three'bright little children. The
mention ol tlie husband and father's disgraceful condition a reused a storm of Indignation.
Two se-ore neople angrily cancelled their sub-oilp-
llons to the Bee-order.' Sonic of Joe's nearest friends
reproached him bitteily. Tor a week black looks -.md
h.usli word.s were his portion.
It w-is brought UomiVto hnn most forcibly that despite- their faults his people ha*, e, great, throbbing
^hearts in their bosoms and a fender symnnthy for the
stricken and aflllcted. He was young at his profession
then but he will never forget tbo lesson that public
opinion drove home, that a newspaper man must never
be noedles-yv cruel or unkind. That lime the machine

V farmer living near Boonetown disappeared. Joe
heard of It and talked to the neighbors. He learned
that the domestic life of the man. whose name was
Se'hwaiT/.. wns,*iol pli*a-*ant.' The family eiuarrelled
csmstnntlv.-.tlie -elder-children took the mother's part
against the' father.
Tbe ltecorder came out with a "four deck ' head nnd
told" all about the disappearance. Tho opposition
pnpe*'- was scooped and tlio next night trailed feebly.
Joe* was certain, aft it a little Investigating, that tho
man had been killed ns a climax to some particularly
hitter iiuanel. He drove out with the Sheriff one
biting winter's day to look  for the "body."
They peered into the well, poked around In the h.iy
mows"iu Hie barn, even wont down into an abandoned
elsti-in under the house. The "widow-" and her shifty
eveil children w.-itclicel them sullenly.
'The famil\ told conliicting stories about the disappearance Joe "played It up" for all It wa.s worth.
He s.ivs now the altitude of the community should

and' pressed the levers, but the machine stood still.
