It is  a ltogether likely that the'' What Happened to Jones"  company will be seen here during February. Manager Annable is also trying to arrange for the appearance of the Wilbur Opera Company, 31 strong, These  are only a few of the companies likely to visit us  within the next month or so.  "Sandy Bottom" drew a good house last evening.  The play is neither very good nor very bad. Part of  the plot is taken from u The Octoroon," and other  portions, from the various plays dealing with the  moonshiners of Arkansas which, have been produced  during the'last two* decade's. There is enough adven-  fu.re;in-the play'to make it attractive to ascertain' class  of theatrergoers, and as this class was well represented;  at the Opera House last evening, the applause was  uproarious.; , The stage settings were away above the  average.  ��� W.

One boy's mother had been prominent in philanthropic work, particularly in the  rescue of depraved boys, but she had no idea that her  ,ow.n son was a blccd-lhirsty desperado whose record  for wanton murder has made the Chicago people stand  aghast. Sensational novels, the lives of cutthroats,  highwaymen and railroad robbers, together with the  degrading detoils of crime such as are given to the  i public b}-- the majority of Chicago newspapers, caused,  extension of the Lucky Jack.  -'���The ���tunnel oi'rthe Jltatic'Ilun is in  2) feet.    "Work  hu�� "..ceii discontinued ' desperate as well   as best  behaved people,  unii! after the'holiday:* J should be preserved in the hard and murderous heart  is perhaps less marvelous than it may appear on the  surface. Though we may often wonder why it is  that an intense, tender love for father is so infrequently manifested, it is doubtless true that sex has  much to do with it. Love goes out most readily to  one-of the opposite sex, yet boys frequently love their  brothers as fervently as they do their sisters. Why ?  The big boy protects the little chap perhaps more frequently than he does his sisters, insomuch as he has  more,, repeated calls to get the little brother out of  scrapes, than to keep his sisters from harm. The  father, while he may toil for the good of his family,  -is very'seldom recognized as- the one to whom the  youthful sinner must flee for protection whether he or  she is right or wrong.. As a rule, the mother does  not argue the rights of the case ; she defends her progeny simply, because they are her children. Sometimes the father is less of a disciplinarian than the  mother ; the great law of' average seems to provide  that either the father or the mother be inclined to use  the ro'd��� figxiratively at least���rather than spoil the  child. If it is the mother' that does the correcting,  then it is apt to be the father to whom tbe children  run when in trouble, or it may be to the big brother  or the big sister. The result, however, is almost invariably the same. Love goes out to the one who is  most gentle with the child's faults and most inclined  to protect the youngster from punishment. It is certainly a wise provision of nature that one or the other  parent-is gentle and blind to the faults of the family;  it is equally wise that one parent at least should be  more or less'of a disciplinarian, otherwise the brood  would grow up half wild. In the instance of the boy  bandits the gentleness of the mothers seems to have  gone to the not unusual extreme bf almost unlimited  "indulgence. The boys evidently were permitted "to  go out without restraint and to return 'when they  liked. I often wonder if many mothers are not too  indulgent to';their children, preferring rather to be  loved than obeyed. Of course love and obedience  should go together, but many mothers in their kindness cau see no weaknesses of character and impropriety of conduct in their children which should be  corrected, and do not know how cruel they are in endeavoring to be kind when kindness is not merrited.  The unrestrained boy is quite certain to develop into  a vicious youth, and.the youngster who is a nuisance,  to everyone but his mother, often ripens into the  tough, the bully,  the burglar, the blackleg or  the  murderer. That even these hardened desperadoes  still have a tender feeling for their mother is natural  enough, but many a vicious lad who has hoodwinked  and even robbed his mother lives not only to be her  curse, but to curse her in words for her neglect of his  early training. There is perhaps no harder problem  in social life than where kindness and indulgence  should cease and stern discipline begin. It is almost  equally bard to tell where gentleness and forgiveness  fail, whether strict and unbending discipline would  have succeeded. Indeed, who em tell how many  boys'who have turned out well'owe most to a loving  mother or to a hard-headed and perhaps hard-handed  father? In the majority of cases probably much of  the good of the young man can he discovered as the  joint product of both. The sons of widows are said  to make the best average, but this is accounted for by  the sense of responsibility which brings gravity of  character into a boyish life ; why should this be so  often lacking in boys who have good homes, good  mothers, and good fathers ? it is a great social and  domestic conundrum in many families.  L  E  ocal and  Ia rovincial  The scheme to   incorporate Cranbrook has died at its birth.  There bas heen an unusually large  sale of poultry this Christmas.  The postoffice was crowded this  morning with anxious inquirers for  parcels!  The Socialists of Nanaimo will place  a candidate for the Dominion House in  the field.  A large number of old time residents  of Nelson are .in the city to celebrate  the Christmas holidays.  The Cranbrook Herald states tha  work at the mines in that district is at  a standstill owing to the big mud alide  on the spur line.  The Outcrop says that in opposition  to the Masonic fraternity the ladies of  Wilme.r have formed a society to be  known as " Wilmer's Order of Ancient  Women."  The car famine at Fernie and Michel  has been relieved by the C. P. R., and  the coke surplus has been moved.  This will enable the coal company to  increase its output at these places.  Jas. Turley, a well kuown old timer,  who has for a number of years resided  in Cariboo and followed the gold mining for a 'iving, died at the Boyal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, one day last  week at the advaucetj age of. 77.    . . ,  Cranbrook has a literary society  which discusses the shortcomings of  Shakespere, Dickens, Scott and other  authors. It is pleasing to note that  the association is making excellent progress and the attendance is increasing  rapidly.  The congregation of St. Paul's  Presbyterian Church, Nelson, has extended a call to Rev. J. Ferguson, of  Cupar, Scotland. The rev. gentleman  stands high in his calling, and the  Presbyteriaus of Nelson hope he will  see his way clear to accept tlie call.   Mrs. Davie wife of the Rev. J. H.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The year now drawing ton close, lias,  oh the whole, been satisfactory to  the  Kootenay from an industrial ami commercial point of view.: The volume of  business transacted has far t-xm-ded  .  that of any former year in our li iotory.  Particularly has Kelson beeu fortunate  in this regard.    The opening itp and  dlseovery of so many promising mining properties, has been the moat encouraging feature of the year.    This  activity in the staple industry lias not.  been confined to any particular dis-  ��� trict, every portion of  the province  participating   in the general revival.  Wot ihe least important factor in tbe  restoration' of  prosperous times   Luis  .   been the great demand for lumber, and  it is pleasing to note iu tbis connection   that next year promises   to   be  ' equally as active as 1903.-    Altogether,  . British  Columbia is to'congratulated  ���on  the substantial progress made in  1903, and if the sign's of the times be*  .not deceptive, the year upon which  ���We are entering will  not fall short of  ���  year which has now almost expired.

Of course Conservatives are not altogether blind to the signs, and some  preparations are being made in many  bt the constituencies for the battle.

The se.t  forage wa�� a stormy one, the vessel was  driven cut of her course, and drinking  ���nrater became so scarce that it wa.- distributed in rations. De Clioux, with an  affection for his coffee plant, divided his  portion of water with it, and succeeJe.l  in bringing it to Martinh|iie, although  weak, not in a hopeless condition. There  le planted it in his garden, protected it.  iritn.a fence of thorns, and watched it  daily until the end of the year, when he  gathered two pounds of co'lTre, which lie  distributed among the inhabitants 0/ t'.ir  island to be planted by them. I-'ro.u  2far Unique coffee trees in turn were sent  to Santo Domingo, Guidaloupe a::d other  neighboring islands. *  '*- The coffee tree is an evergreen 31171515.  growing, in its natural state, to a height  of foui-tcen to eighteen feet. It is usually .kept trimmed, however,, for convenience in picking .the berries, which grow  along the branches close to the Icjvcs  finxl resemble, in shape and color ordinary'cherries. The tree cannot be grown  above the frost line, neither can it be  successfully grown in. the tropics. The  most successful climate for production is  tbat found at an altitude ��1 about four  thousand feet. '��� Anything much shove  this is in danger of frost, which is fatal  to the tree; and, when coffee, is grown  inuch. below this,' it requires artificial  shade, -which materially-increases./the  cost of .production and does not produce  as marketable berries.. It is owing te  this particular requirement that coffee  has never been successfully oproiiuced ���  jjorth of tie Mexican boundary.
