THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, May 6, 1910  r-o  MANY FOR THE tA��0$  Ashcroft presents the appearance of a busy town these days  hundreds of _ people passing  through its gates into the Cariboo country every week. No  less than eight big automobiles  are in service and others will be  brought in very shortly. Ten  hours to Soda Creek against  three days previously is in the  estimation of the traveler a wonderful convenience and at Soda  Creek an excellent steamboat  service has been provided with  Quesnel and other northern ports.  The new coriiers are mostly going  into the country surrounding  Fort George v and into the now  famous Nechaco valley.  KETTLE VALLEY LINE  The Penticton Press had the  following to say last week anent  the proposed construction of the  Kettle Valley railway this coming season: J "The Kettle Valley  railway has called for tenders  for building a 20-mile section of  the line between Merritt and in  Nicola valley to Clearwater, a  point on the Clearwater: river en  route to Penticton. It is expected that at least 100 miles of the  road will be under construction  this summer.     -  The line will untimately extend  from Grand Forks to Merritt and  possibly to Hope on the,.,w^st  slope of the Hope mountains.''  LATE ARCHDEACON SMALL  The story of the life of the  late Archdeacon Sriiall which appeared in last; week's issue- of  The News and which evoked  such widespread interest was  contributed by Msjs^w^mily  Rhodes of Nicola. The publication of the author's name was  unfortunately omitted though  reference was made to her in the  editorial comment which served  as an introductory. Miss Rhodes  is to be congratulated upon the  splendid character  of her effort.  FOURTH TRANSCONTINENTAL  It is definitely announced that  the Great Northern railway will  build a line across Canada making a fourth transcontinental.  Vancouver will be the terminus.  For the present the company  will build as far as Winnipeg  completing the link later.  OPTION ON GREAVES LAND  A report comes to hand that  P. Burns & Co. has taken an  option on the property of the  Douglas Lake Cattle Co., at one  millioridollars. It is impossible  to verify this report at present.  FRISKEN MAY RETURN  It is reported on good authority  that William Frisken who for  some time was conductor on the  local C. P. It. branch but who  has been running on the mainline for the past two months will  return to the branch. George  Hatch who succeeded George  Strivens will go back to the  mainline. It is understood that  the change will take place as  soon as Mrs. Frisken is able to  leave the hospital.  -o-  PREMIER TO TOUR CARIBOO  Hon.    Richard    McBride * has  **      * *���  chartered an automobile from  Ashcroft for May 20th and will  tour the Cariboo, country on an  official trip. Plans for this outing have been laid for some time.  It is unlikely that, the Premier  will find it convenient to visit  Nicola valley before the middle  of July as^it will be utterly impossible for him to come much  before that time.  -o-  IN 1914.���.

BOOM YOUR DISTRICT  It was William Jennings Bryan  who said that the character of  a nation is reflected in the character of its people. If the people  are progressive, enterprising,  thrifty,.,, zealous and energetic it  will .������.be equally so with the  nation. What is true of the  nation is true of a province or an  individual district. We as a  people are responsible for the  standing of the community . in  which we. live. The people make  the town or city.  Nicola valley has been bountifully blessed by nature. There  is no.district,in British Columbia  more generously endowed and we  are indeed a fortunate people.  But the latent resources of the  . soil, the wealth of our forests and  mines and our other natural, asH  sets would be valueless unless w|  improved the opportunities presented to us.  Boost for your town and, district and be untiring in singing  its praises. When you go out to  another town impress the people  of that town with the fact that  you come from a district that  rivals the best. In that way you  will stir up an interest ...in .your  town or district. New settlers  may be induced to come here  just by saying a word in the right  place. Advertising always pays  but there is ever the opportunity  of individual effort. It forms a  unit and each unit goes to make  and there were two days of good  wholesome enjoyment that was  shared not alone by the people of  Nicola but by hundreds of  pleasure seekers from distant  points.  It devolves upon us to not  alone sustain the splendid record  of last year but to improve it if  possible. We are laboring in the  midst of more favorable conditions. We have no strike with  which to contend. The population has substantially increased  and the business interests of the  town have been materially enhanced. There is every reason  why we should provide a bigger  and better celebration.  But there appears to be a lack  of interest. Only, three weeks  separate us from the hour of the  celebration and we should employ every effort to make the  enterprise a notable success. It  rests not with- the few but with  the many���individual effort is  necessary to effectual results.  up the whole even as an individual link is essental to the efficiency of the chain. Nicola  valley is worthy of the best  effort in this direction and the  responsibility resting with its  people should be fully appreciated because in the full recog-  ' nition of this responsibility rests  the success of the district iri  every department of industrial  activity.  THAT CELEBRATION  There seems to be.a lack of interest and enthusiasm amongst  the citizens of Merritt in the  matter of the Victoria Day celebration. Why this should be we  cannot fully comprehend. Last  year a signal success was scored  WANTED-SOME LUMBER  . What Merritt requires urgently  at the present time is a good  supply of lumber. Houses- in  course, of erection cannot be completed and buildings contemplated  cannot be proceeded with because there is no lumber.  '. Located in the, heart of a diis-  trict.that is rich in timber wealth  it is unfortunate that there should,  be sucfea serious dearth of building material. It would be an  excellent . investment for ; men  with money to construct a sawmill of adequate proportions and  to cater to the local market.  Hundreds of new homes will  be built in Merritt in the course  of the next few months and it is  lamentable if the hand of progress is to be staged . by Jack of  lumber. It would be a paying  venture to locate a well stocked  lumber yard in this district and  inestimable good to the community would also result.  .  -A.! KA!

O'Sullivan, a Vancouver  analyst. Some days ago editor  John P. McConnell of the Saturday Sunset was in Kamloops and  there he met a man complaining  of the injuriousness of alkali and  its prevalence in that   district.  Not satisfied Mr. McConnell  took a sample of the alkali back  to Vancouver with him and immediately employed the analyst  with the result that the ingredients were found to be 94 per  cent, of ^silica and insoluble matter, 4.75 per cent,   of oxide of  iron and alumia, one per cent, of  sulphate of lime (gypsum) and  no chlorides. - In presenting, his  analysis Mr. O'Sullivan stated  that the material would not be  injurious to vegetable growth.  There is considerable alkali  through this country and it will  be interesting and pleasing to  know that its presence will have  no evil effect. So many people  have been prone to regard this  material with suspicion but their  doubts should now be set.at rest.  The discovery of another valuable seam of coal on the property of the Coal Hill Syndicate  only serves to <;onfii?m -our- previous high appreciation of the  splendid worth of this camp.  Under the able direction of the  head. of the concern, Joseph  Graham, excellent results are  being accomplished in the master  of prospecting and the announcement that an operating plant will  shortly be installed is not alone  gratifying to Mr. Graham but to  every friend of mining throughout this district. The; installation of this plant means the  employment of men with the  consequent appreciation in settlement in this community. Mining is one of the basic industries  of Nicola valley . and. never before has',there: been such a hopeful outlook. Every possible encouragement, should be provided  and" this ;:with?ithe: enterprise of  the splendidly energetic men who  are "at the .head of the industry  locally a bountiful future is assured.   .      .         ,  The organization of the Nicola  Valley Land and Investment Co.  at Merritt should be a distinct  boom to this district. The policy  of this new institution will be  largely to promote schemes that  must be and will be of im-  measureable value to the community.

JAMES GRAY  Superintendent  of Middlesboro Mines.  . The success that is attending  the operation of the properties of  the Nicola Valley Coal and Coke  Co., at Middlesboro is due to  many causes but one of the  principal reasons is found in the  splendid executive ability and  efficiency of the superintendent,  James Gray, whose photograph  is herewith produced. Mr. Gray  is a valuable : officer���indefati-  gible, zealous, conscientious,  progressive and ever optimistic  as to the future. He has: ambitions and laudible ambitions too,  and the day is not far distant  when these ambitions will be  realized for their . realization  means much not alone to the  concern of which he is the active  head but to this entire, community.

Grimmett Tuesday afterooon. Immediate steps  to secure incorporation were decided upon and the necessary  preliminaries will be put through  by Mr. Grimmett. who is acting  as solicitor for the new corporation.  Luxuriously furnished ofifices  have been opened in the Jackson  block over the Bank of Montreal  and the large number of listings  and pending deals presages a  splendid future for the new  concern. Several plans of subdivisions and the handling of  townsites are amongst the items  on the programme at present.  It was decided to capitalize the  company at $10,000 for the present though the capitalization  may be increased from time to  time. A. L. Dingee who was  named as secretary treasurer at  a previous meeting is already  energetically promoting the work  of the company and in the office  he will have an assistant. Aside  from the usual routine of the  line companies the Nicola Valley  Land and Investment Co. will  serve as general promoters and  will be interested in several large  financial schemes in this district.;  Those present at Tuesday's  meeting and the men who comprise the new company were J.  P. Boyd, Dr. G. H. Tutill, James  Gray, A. L. Dingee and S. N.  Dancey. It is announced that  M. L. Grimmett will be associated with these men in the promotion of the enterprise.^! i^S'*iia**  MERRITT BOARD OF TRADE  G. B.

The matter of appointing a permanent secretary  with remuneration was deferred  until the next meeting but the  office will likely be given to H.  Priest. A bureau of information;  will be established in connection  with the secretary's  new offices.

A Story of American Life Novelized From the Play by  ARTHUR  HORN BLOW.  COPYRIGHT.     1906.BY    G.    W.    DILLINGHAM    COMPANY,  Continued from  CHAPTER  V.  HEY were four days out from  port. Two days more and  thejr would sight Sandy Hook,  'and Shirley would know the  worst. She had caught the North German Lloyd boat at Cherbourg two days  after receiving the cablegram from  New York. Mrs. Blake had insisted  on coming along in spite of her niene's  protests. Shirley argued that she had  "crossed alone when coming; she could  go back the same way: Besides, was  not Mr. Ryder returning home on the  same ship? He would be company and  protection both. But Mrs. Blake was  bent on making the voyage.. She had  not seen her sister for many years and,  moreover, this sudden summons from  America had upset her own plans.  The alarming summons home and the  terrible shock she had experienced the  following morning when Jefferson  showed her-the newtspaper article with  Its astounding and heartrending news  about her father had almost prostrated  Shirley.   The blow was all tho gronte?  for being . w�� entirely unlooked for.  That the story was true she could not  doubt. Her - mother would not have  cabled except under the gravest circumstances. What alarmed Shirley  still more was that she had no direct  news of her father. For a moment her  heart stood still. Suppose the shock ot  this shameful accusation had- killed  him? Her blood froze in her veins, sh��  clinched her fists and dug her nails int<s.  her flesh as she thought ���of the dread]  possibility that- she had looked uponi  him in life for the last time. She remembered his last kind words when*  he came to the steamer to see her off*  and his kiss when he said goodby, and!  she had noticed a tear of which he appeared to be ashamed. The hot tearaj  welled up In her own eyes and coursedi  unhindered down .her cheeks. - .  i  Suddenly she heard a familiar stepf  behind her, and Jefferson joined her at  the rail. The wind was due wast andj  blowing half a gale, so where they-  were standing���one of the most expos**  ed" parts of the ship���it was difficult ..tol  keep one's feet, to say nothing of hearing any one speak. :  "It's pretty windy here, Shirley,**  shouted   Jefferson,   stead j'ing   himself.  against a stanchion^     "Don't-you want"  to walk. a. little,?'.';..       , '* >-  Ile had-begun to call .her by her first  name-quite.: naturally.'-as ��if it were a  mi'i'i'r of course. -��� Indeed, their rela-  tio: * had come to be more like those of  biv her and sister, than anything else. .  Sb ' \v was too much troubled over  tit- news from home to have a mind  for other things, and in tier distress  sh'. had turned to Jefferson for advice  an1 help as.she would have looked t<&  an "l.ler brother.  II o was "sorry for Judge Rossmore, of  cor.rse. and there was nothing he would  not do on his return to secure a with-  dr;i wal of the charges. That his' father would use his ���influence' he had ud  doubt, but meantime he was selfislS ,  enough to be,glad for the opportunity  it gave him to be a whole week alone  with Shirl-y.  Hi as events, combined with tho  weather, conspired to bring Shirley  and Jefferson nipre c'osely together..  T-be   sea   had   been   rr.warih   pvpp  sinr^  they sailed, keeping Mrs: Blake confined  to her stateroom almost continuously.  They were therefore constantly in one  another's company, and slowly, unconsciously, there wa�� "taking root in  their hearts.the germ of the only real  and lasting love���the love born of.  something higher than mere physical  attraction, the nobler, more enduring  affection that is born of mutual sympathy, association and companionship.  Jefferson had been casting furtive  glances at his companion, and as he  noted her serious, pensive face he  thought how pretty she was. He'wondered what she was thinking of, and  suddenly inspired no doubt by. the mysterious power that enables some people  to read the thoughts of others, he said  abruptly:  "Shirley, I can read your thoughts.  You. were thinking of me."  She was startled for a moment, but  immediately recovered her self possession. It never occurred to her to deny  it. She pondered for a moment and  then replied: '       .*  "You are Hght. Jeff, I was thinking  of you.~-Ho^*aid you guess?"  He leaned over her and took her  hand. She made no resistance... Her  delicate, slender hand lay passively in  his big brown one and met his grasp  frankly, cordially.    He whispered: .-,-*���  "What were you thinking of/ lrie-^  good or bad?**  "Good, of course. How could I think  anything bad of you?"  She turned her eyes on him in wonderment; then she went on:  "I was wondering how a gjuj could  distinguish between the feeling she  has for a man she merely likes and the  feeling she has for a. man she loves/'.  Jefferson bent eagerly forward so as  to lose no word that might fall from  ttoose coveted- lips.  "^"tn' what category would I be  placed?** he asked. . ";.  "I don't quite know," she answered  laughingly. Then seriously she added:  "Jeff, why should we act like children?  Your actions, more than your words,  have told me that you love me. I have  known It all along. If I have appeared  cold and indifferent, it Is because"���  She hesitated.  "Because?"   echoed    Jefferson   anxiously, as if his whole future depended  ~on-that^reasonT" ""* "*      " 7  "Because I was not sure o*'myself.  Would it be womanly or honorable on  my part to encourage you unless I felt  I reciprocated your feelings? You arc  young. One day you will be very rich.'  The whole world lies before you.'  There are plenty of women who would  willingly give you their love."  "No, no!" he burst out in -vigorous'  protest "It Is you I want, Shirley���'  you alone.'*  Grasping her 'hand more closely, ft*'  went on, passion vibrating In every  note of his voice: "I love you, Shirley-  I've loved you from the very first ev��m-  Ing I met you. I want you to be my  wife/'  Shirley looked straight, up into the  blue eyes so eagerly bent down on  hers, so entreating in their expression,  and in a gentle voice full of emotion  she answered:  "Jefferson, you have- done me the'  greatest honor a man can do a woman.-  sIVu*!^    Oolr     tin***     $~r%     oTAOvirAH    w��\m     ���*#���**����� V  like yvi very ranch. I more than like  you. Whether it is love I feel for you.  that I have noi jret determined. Give  me time. My present trouble and then'  my literary work"���  "1 know." agreed Jefferson, "that  this is hardly the time to speak of such  matters. Your fatlfer has first call Ou  your attention. But as to your literary  work I do not understand."  "Simply this: I am ambitious. 1  have had-a little success���Just enough  to crave for more. I realize that marriage would put an extinguisher on all  .flSDlrntlnna   In  H.o+ dU��ftM���� '���  "Is marriage   so very commonplace?  grumbled Jefferson.  "Not. commonplace, but there is mi  room iu marriage for a woman bavins:  personal ambitions of her own. Once  married her duty is to her husbaivl  and her children, not to herself."  "That is right." he replied; "but  which is likely to give you greater joy  ���a literary success or a happy wifehood? When you have spent your best  years and given the public your best  work, they will throw yon over for  some new favorite. You'll find yourself an old woman with nothing more  substantial to show as your life work  than that questionable asset, a literary  reputation. How many literary reputations today conceal an aching heart  and find it difficult to make both ends  meet? How different with the woman  who married young and obeys nature's  behest by contributing her share to the  process of evolution. Her life is spent  basking in the affection of her husband  and the chubby smiles of her dimpled  babes, and when in the course of time  she'finds herself in the twilight of her  life, she has at her feet a new generation of her own flesh and blood. Isn*t  that better than a literary reputation V"  He spoke so earnestly that Shirley  looked at him in surprise. She knew  he was serious, but she had not suspected that he thought so deeply on  these matters. Her heart told her that  lie was uttering the, true philosophy of  - .the ages. .--She said:  "Wh;\ Jefferson, you talk like a  book, k'erhap- you are right I have  novwish to be a bluestocking and de  serted in my old age,'far from it. But  give me time to think. Let us first ascertain the extent of this disaster  which has overtaken my father. Then  if you still care for me. and.jf I have  ��� not changed. my mind," here she  glanced slyly at him, "we will resume  our discussion."  Again she held out her hand, which  he bad .reteased. ���--. ��� '   ���       .  "is it a bargain?" she asked.  "It's a bargain," he murmured, raising the white, hand to his lips. A fierce  longing rose within him to take her in  his   arms   and   kiss   passionately   the  A few minutes later they left the  deck and went downstairs to dress for  dinner. That same evening they stood  again at the rail watching the mysterious phosphorescence as it sparkled'in  the moonlight. Her thoughts traveling faster than the ship, Shirley suddenly asked: !  "Do you really think Mr. Ryder \WIfc  use his influence to help my father?"  Jefferson set his Jaw fast and the-  familiar Ryder gleam came into hi*  eyes as lie responded:  "Why not? My father is all powerful. He has made and unmade judges  and legislators and even presidents.  Why should he not be able to put a  stop to these preposterous proceedings? I will go to him directly we  land, and we'll see what can be done."  So the time on shipboard had passed,  Shirley alternately buoyed up with  hope and again depressed by th��*  gloomiest forebodings. The following  night they passed Fire island; and th��  next day the huge steamer dropped Anchor at quarantine. '    ;  -l!
