 GOT  1ST El  Too Much Christmas   Leads  to "Very Much Trouble.  Unwise overindulgence in  alcoholic stimulants lead  to   extreme mental, exhilaration in the  case of Nak Wassman  early  in  the week.    When  Nak  took his  first  drink  he decided that one  good turn deserved another, and  another,   and another,   and another, and��� but why go on with  this  attempt.    If it were kept  up long enough the reader would  b'i seeing as   "double"  as Nak.  Anyhow after Nak had had some  and then several more  he began  to sing that well-know song:  ' 'Ay yoost come  From South Dakota!  Ay ban thar  To see the fair !"  His song was interrupted and  Nak   became    indignant.     The  more   he   thought   about it the  madder he got. Finally he started to look for revenge, and that  meant trouble.  He  raged like  a roaring lion  seeking whom he might devour.  ' Then   the   Provincial    Police  .sought him and was  more  successful in the search than Nak.  ' The cold   grey   dawn  of the  ; morning after put a new complexion on  everything and Nak  was face to face with the charge  "Drunk and. disorderly and.-resisting arrest. 7,,    ,     _- /.-/-" -.  f Dr.   Tutill, '"J.": P., "put orrhis  magisterial frown and hearkened  ' to the recital which  came  from  the strong arm of the law. - As  he listened his frowm disappeared and in its place  came  an expression " which was as inexorable as fate  itself.    Nack furtively survey him,   looking for  some sign of pity..  He saw ncne  and   felt  as "..cold  "as   a' stone  monument at 45 below zero.  * | Then came his fate:     ' 'Thirty  days and $5 and cost; in default  of payment of the latter 30 days  addition.     ".-           /   -'���  _  Thus did too great exhilaration  produce incarceration.  , The case of John Spy was different.    John was jaunty,  so he  _was_only_soaked^five-^plunks���-  with what it cost to bring ther e  added.  wards that section of Merritt.  He has now moved into the  offices in the Morgan building  and in about ten days time will  have all his office fixtures installed.  In providing the best and  most up to date fixtures the  market affords Mr. Greig has  spared no expense. . Believi -.g  "There is nothing too good for  the Scotch." " He has also made  a careful study of the art of  window display and' says that he  will have one that will stop every  passer-by.  Another announcement of interest to all will be published in  The News next week.   o   Road Work  Suspended  laying  month. '���'-.-7'.  The steel now reaches five and  a half miles up the."Coldwater  and daily slips quietly forward.  It-is'expected that twelve miles  will be laid before the rail-laying  machine stops for a time. Grading the roadbed progresses rapidly,^ camps being changed with  increasing  frequency.  Mr Macdonell expressed himr  self as pleased with the progress  made arid departed for the coast  on Thursday morning. j  -o-  Many Sales  in Real Estate  Local Operator Reports Exceptionally Busy in Real Estate  Field.  * "*%  Mr.   Harold- Greig,   the well  known  real  estate  operator of  Merritt, when- interviewed by.a  representative of The News on  .Thursday   afternoon, - expressed  himself as highly pleased w|th  the rapid sale of lots in. Central  View subdivision, which he first  placed on the market last week.  : The following are the gentlemen who have purchased home-  sites in that section of the city.  Messrs. J. Morgan,   A. Gavelin,  A. McKendrick,  S. E. Durham,  John McKendrick, Frank Bailey,  James   McGrath,   Charles   McKendrick,   J.    Food   and   John  Malleck.  Mr. Greig states that if the  present rate of sales is to continue every lot will be sold within thirty days time. When he had  : hardly hoped , before he placed  the subdivision?on the market to  have it sold off in double that  time. There is evidently a  movement-of home-buyers; to-  Work   on   New   Connection of  Aspen Grove to Princeton  Road Ends for Winter.  William McNeil returned from  Aspen Grove yesterday evening,  with the announcement that, all  work on the government road  which is to connect" Aspen Grove  with the Princton has' been ' sus-  pended for the winter, on account  of the snow.  With operations were suspend-  edUfour or five miles of the-right  of way had been brushed out and  several- culvertsbuilt. The'grade  is level all the way through to  Princeton road and when construction is started in the spring  it is expected that the completion  can be accomplished in a few  months.  With the construction of this  road a chain of splendid fishing  ���lakes is rendered easy of access  to the sportsman. According to  Mr. McNeil .these lakes are fairly  swarming with trout and when  spring opens up a rush of the  disciples of Izaak Walton may  be anticipated. The scenery all  through is very attractive.  In addition to the new fishing  grounds opened up, which are  merely incidental to the purpose  for which the road is being, con^  structed, some splendid farming  land is made available to the settlers. The particular route which  the road follows, by the consent  of the goqernment, was left to  the people who have holdings in  that section of thecouhtry. This  means' assures ^efficient trans-  portation ,to the present settlers  alang the-route and to the  strangers, who, according to  Mr. McNeil, have been flocking  in there in consideracle numbers  since road building commenced.  Asked when he intended to resume operations. Mr. McNeil  stated that he did not think that  it would be possible to do anything in. that^sectidn until May  est,' but once started the work  will b9 rushed through.

Among the overnight visitors  to Merritt, on Wednesday evening, was Mr. James Macdonell,  senior member of the firm of  Macdonell & Czowski, contractors  for the first 26" miles of the  extension of the Kettle River  "Valley Railway toconnectMerritt  with Midway.  Mr. Macdonell came up in order  to ascertain how much progress  has been made since active rail-  At half past'one on Friday morning, December 30,  Mrs. Harry Winny died at  her home in Nicola. Deceased had been ailing for  many months and death  came as a merciful release.  The news of her death  though not unexpected,  came as a shock to her  many friends in the valley  where she has been so well-  known for years and so  universally popular. The  parents of deceased, who  are residents of Kamloops,  were notified of her demise  by wire and will probably  arrive in town this evening.  Mrs. Winny leaves a husband and three young  children,  The funeral will be held  from the English church at  Nicola next Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The body  will be interred in Nicola  cemetry. Rev. J. Thompson  will officiate.  has never before in the history  of this lusty infant called,. Merritt been such a crowd  gathered  together.  In front of the Coldwater hotel  was  tied a blue-grey  broncho,  evidently with a strain  of Per-  cheron in its veins.     The crowd  around it, though they   all  kept  at   a   respectful   distance,  wa's  composed of men who ail wished  to talk at once, most of them of  course telling how they used to  bust bronchoes,   either  in   their  younger days or when there was  not so much snow on the ground.  Only  one  volunteered  to climb  across the back of the grey and  he was Jack Moore.  John was surrounded by an enthusiastic   and   admiring   concourse as soon as  he announced  his intension of mounting the animal. He started for the horse to  tighten the cinches, - but an  excited friend hauled him back and  insisted   on    purchasing    some  slight refreshment for him.  That of   course   delayed   the  game.   But finally he   dragged  himself away and  proceeded  to  haul on the  leather. The horse  turned its head, as much to say  "What   the���deuce���does    this  mean?"   Then   he    lifted  .his  off hind leg   tentatively to  measure   the   distance between  himself and Jacky Moore. Thinking he had the range.down  fine  he shot out the same leg viciously  and------missed!   John   M.    was  watching.    .    .  Scotty   Angus came forward  and .volunteered   to    hold   the  :h o;r\e' s   h.e a d   while Moore  ^oWfe^l^t^^'McCutciieonr  -the.re'cent arrival   in  our midst,  ;tpOk careof that part, of the  entertainment in order +o see ��� that  none 'of   the   onlookers  became  tangled up with the now flying  pedaleextr,emiiies of the animiK  It took  Moore"some   time to  mount and he finally got   there  by taking a flying jump to the  saddle.' As soon-as he landed he  brought his quirt down.     The  horse-  started   skywards  and came down about,' four feet  further   down   the   street  and  close to the sidewalk* in front of  the Nicola Valley Meat Market.  Then  the crowd ducked.     The  assembled gentlemen   had business down Voght street and lost  alUnterest-in-the-busting���for-a  second or two.    When they looked again Moore and his four-footed friend were engaged in wrestling their way across lots  and  'back yards indiscriminately.    It  kept the crowd busy trying   to  figure out into whose back yard  they would be meandering next  time.    Finally the horse got desperate and    sat   down;" Moore  waited for it to get up and came  up with it.   Then the pony threw  in the towel and the entertainment was over.   It was worth the  price of admission.  L   0. L. OFFICERS.  the  x L. O. L. No. 1701, elected  following officers for "19*11:  ^'W. M.,  Bert Robinson; D." G.  M. R. H. Tate; Rec.-Sec,  R.  J.

SALES BELOW COST  The following, clipped from  the Retail Grocers' Review, the  official organ of the Vancouver-  Retail Grocers' Association, will  be of particular (interest to all  Merritt business men.  "The fellow who.is always  having below-cost-cut-rate-sales  never seems to have the best  store. The fellow who" enjoys  the respect of the community,  who marks his goods in plain  figures, who sells goods that pay  him a profit, somehow or other  seems to get the business. Cut:  rate sales���br low cost sales have  their place, but. when overdone';  cheapen the whole store that  conducts them. ~Z  A lai'ge percentage of the  general public soon lose faith in  the store that is always\giving  away goods. Come to think of  it, there doesn't seem to. be any  reason why they should not. To  pay rent goods must be sold at a  profit. It does not require' a  mathematician to figure that out*.  %  -SS^i  mi. h  /      "���-  THE NICOLA  VALLEY  NEWS  Friday, December 30.  I91u  PRICED LOTS IN  MERRITT TO-DAY.

When acting minister for agriculture, Hon. W.  Bowser promised that the provincial government would take  steps to assist the further development of public lands and  the suggestion of the West Kootenay Farmers'-Institute is right  up to time. We suggest that the  local Farmers' Institute take  steps to confer with our new  member at an.early date on this  subject. -  THE SIMS INCIDENT  According to London ��� newspapers at a banquet tendered the  officers of" the visiting United  States fleet Commander William  S. Sims of the U. S. S. Minnesota, in replying.to - the welcoming speech of the lord mayor of  London, said that personally he  felt that if ever the time came  when the British Empire was  seriously menaced by a foreign  power they could count on every  man, every gun, every ship,  every dollar and every drop of  blood from their kindred across  the sea:. meaning thereby the  United States. 77 ..77_-  . By his remarks Commander  Sims talked his name into the  pages of history. He also talked  himself into serious difficulty  with his own war department;  for it is one of the  most serious  faux pas which a naval officer  can take, to speak in a manner  calculated to be construed by the  powers of the world as a definite  pronouncement of the attitude  of his own country towards another power. It is understood  that Secretary of the Navy  Meyer is investigating the alleged utterances of the commander with a view to reporting  the matter to President Taft.  Admiral Murdock, commander of  the Third Divison of the Atlantic fleet, to which the Minnesota was attached, has cabled  the substance of Commander  Sims' remarks to Washington.  The consternation which must  now   prevail   in   German  naval  circles is only paralelled  by the  excitement created  by the historic "I undt Gott"  incident in  New York  six  years ago, when  at a banquet of newspapermen,  publicists,    naval   and   military  officers and other public men, an  American naval officer recited a  poem  of his  own   composition.  The poem was written in a regular  Hoch der Kaiser   vein  and  was  supposed  to  be the declaration  of   the   German Emperor  that he ruled  by  divine right;  every verse until the last ended  with the words  "I undt Gott."  The last line read "Gottundt I."  The   American   Atlantic fleet  has been paying a flying visit to  Great Britain and France.    The  longer visit was to the former  country; when the officers and  men of the visiting fleet were  officially ancd privately entertained in the most enthusiastic manner. Hardly less enthusiastically were the visitors received  by the second party to the Entente Cordiale. The Americans,  though their fleet passed within  four hours steam of Wilhelmsh-  afen, the new German naval  base, did not call there at all.  This insult, for it could be construed by the Germans in no  other light, was a clear expression of the attitude of the Washington government towards Germany and in our opinion marked  the collapse of the efforts of the  German emperor to establish an  entente withthe Americans.  Coming on top of the directly  official resusal to admit friendly  i lations with the German Empire the Sims incident cannot be  re;- ided in any other light than  furt'v r'' confirmation of the  Washington attitude. Commander Sims, in order to reach  his present position on the navy  list must have learned by long  experience the significance attached to the remarks of a officer of his rank at any function  of international importance. It  will be noted, however, that  Commander Sims was careful to  premise his remarks with the intimation . that what he was to  say must be regarded as merely  his personal opinion. Even so,  when the ignoring of the German  nation is taken into consideration,  it would appear that his premise  was merely a sop to international  etiquette.  We confidently look forward to  a further paralelling of the New  York incident in the reprimand,  reduction in rating and subsequent double promotion of  Commander Sims.  the Dominion. We don't for a  moment suggest that the Nick  Clark townsite is a wildcat. Oh,  non monsieur. If we did we  would undoubtedly be slapped  across the eye with a blue paper.  But what we want to p'int out,  stranger, is that Jay Pay persists  in delivering the goods.  H.

Vancouver World on Christmas Eve  from a doctor in Guadalajara,  Mexico/would seem to verify the  reports which have recently  reached the outside world, to the  effect that the uprising in the  quasi-modern "republic" north  of the isthmus of Panama has  been unduly exaggerated by excited correspondents. While that  may be so insofar as the a"tively  revolutionary movement is concerned, we are inclined to believe  that the dissatisfaction of the  masses with the present system  of government has reached that  point at which it would   require  a modicum of success to rest  with the insurgents to start a  blaze that would soon grow beyond the capacity of the autocracy of mexico City to control.  Of course it may be that we are  misinformed as to the anachronistic conditions which prevail  throughout those provinces in  which the Anglo-Saxon commercial invader has penetrated  in small numbers, but it is hardly probable that we should find  men writing in the magazines of  two contiuents revelations of iniquities which make the blood  boil.

Mr. and Mrs. George McGruther  were host and hostess to about a  dozen guests on Christmas eveT  ning. An elaborate menu was  for the occasion. To the guests'  assembled from the far corners  of the earth and united in the  common bond of mutual understanding of the meaning of the  annual festival it was a singularly enjoyable repast, and there  could be no doubt of the sincerity  with which all concurred in wishing the host and hostess a Merry  Xmas and a prosperous New  Year.

Worth, of  Holbeach Hurn, Lincolnshire, one  of the foremost agriculturalists  in the old country, in which the  latter conveys the information  that he has succeeded in perfecting an apparatns for dry-spraying  potato fungicide. Formerly, all  fungicide spraying has been done  with the fungicide in solution,  which meant that there was a  constant element of danger to  tho operator, especially when the  solutions contafned strong acids.  It is safe to say that Mr. Worth's  invention, which has been pronounced practicable by the besl  potato farmers of Great Britain,  and which is already in great  demand, mean s the departu re of  fungicide for potatoes in a solution. Many years and much  money has been spent. in the  search for a practicable dry  sprayer. By it there is less danger of the plant itself being injured than there ever was before,  even from the weakest solutions-  HAZELHURST-RICKIER  Ths marriage of Richard Ha-  zelhurst and Miss Lily Rickner  was solemnized in the Anglican  church at Nicola on Wednesday  by the Rev. J. Thompson. The  edifice was suitably decorated for  the occasion and packed by the  many friends of the happy couple,  from Nicola and the neighboring  towns. ���  Following the ceremony at the  church, the bride and groom,  nervous but radiantly happy, proceeded to the hotel, where they  heard the felicitations of their  many friends at a wedding breakfast. The usual toasts were honored, after which the happy pair  departed for their new home.
