The  ranch comprises   a   fraction   over   eleven  thousand acres, and included in  the sale price of the property are  between eightyand ninety thousand dollars worth of stock and  agricultural implements.

It is possible that there  may be someone who will seek  the nomination against Mr. Bur-  rel, but it is highly improbable  that such an one would be suc-  cesfful in obtaining it.  It is of course regrettable that  the Dominion   government  has  seen fit to postpone the matter  of redistributipn until after the  election, in which they have endeavoured to make Reciprocity  the   sole  issue.   If Sir Wilfrid  Laurier were not afraid of the  sentiment of the west 'he would  undoubtedly*" have   witheld   his  his decision in the matter of a  general election  until after the  cerisusT^returns^hadSbeeircoirF  pleted.    His action in forcing a  generalelection with a bare two  two months notice leaves Yale-  Cariboo, which has so greatly increased in population during the  past four years,   with  the same  voice in the affairs of the Dominion as at the last general election.     However,    Conservatives  and all other voters must put up  with the matter as it stands.  It would appear that the only  manner in which the voters of  this section may register their  disapproval of this scurvy treatment is by again returning a  Conservative member for Yale-  Cariboo. It's a safe bet that the  Liberal orators in the campaign  will sedulously avoid all reference  to this vital question of proportionate representation. Already  Hon. Frank Oliver/ speaking: at  Winnipeg, attempted to shift the  reaponsipility for the non-redistribution to the opposition. He  took care, however, to deal very  briefly with the matter,  The looal Lj berate have already  chosen their delegates to the  Convention in Kamloops to be  Held next Monday*^ but it "would  appear that there is yet no certainty as to whom they are to  nominate there, or to support.

Bennett  has sold out his interest in the  firm of Bennett & Reid to his  partner, Alderman F. A. Reid,  will be received with surprise by  his many friends, mingled with  regret that he is about to leave  this city for Vancouver, where  he intends to engage in the same  business.  The firm of Bennett .& Reid  vince and of Yale-Cariboo in pa^fwas organized early this spring/  has  and ever since its inception  made remarkable progress.  .When they first started business there were not lacking those  who predicted that the two young  business men were perhaps engaging in a business where risks  of failure were high.    By careful  management,   shrewd   business  methods and a policy sf uniform  and unfailing courtesy they soon  earned   the  confidence   of  the  public and their hearty support;  with the result that today it is  safe to say that there is no firm  in the city conducting a better  and more profitable business than  Bennett & Reid.   __7 __________________ _  "^Mrv'Bennetf'sTJecisiomo sell"  out his interests to his partner  and the resulting injury to Canada's trade.  The dispersal of ministers to  various parts of the country for  the campaign has already commenced. Hon. William Temple-  man, accomoanied by Mr. Ralph  Smith, has left for Victoria, and  Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King for  Berlin. Hon. Frank Oliver was  to leave for Edmonton and Hon.  William Pugsley for New Brunswick. Sir Wilfred Laurier went  to Montreal. There will be a  quorum of the Cabinet in the  capital all this week, after which  no full meeting will be held until  after the election.  The registration of new voters  in Ottawa will begin on Thursday  next, and continue Friday arid  Saturday.  Sir Wilfrid-Laurier's first fight  for reciprocity took him on Saturday to Montreal to confer with  a group of Canadian manufacturers who are opposing it on the  ground that it foreshadows the  reduction of duties on manufactured articles.

Election Items  THE NAVAL QUESTION  Vancouver, Aug. 7.���The attitude of the organ of the Nationalist party,������������-���' Le Devoir," defines  the position with regard to reciprocity in its leading editorial  on Saturday. . The tone of the  editorial is that of 7 the whole  Nationalist party on the trade  agreement, If the Nationalists  can help it, the coming election  will not be fought out on reci-.  prboity at all, but on other issues,  notably the navy,  The 0 itario Conservative polif  cal campaign opened Saturday by  a monster meeting at the exhibi*  tjon grounds, Owing to pressure  of business at Ottawa, R. L.  Borden was unable to attend, as  expected. Sir James Whitney  was the chief spoaker. .. The  speeches all dealt with reciprocity  It will be seen that the straight  Liberal majority is 48, and that  of this majority 42 form Quebec's  share.    That is to say, outside of  Quebec the Liberal majority is 6  with 3 independents.    Dividing  the Dominion by sections, we find  the maritime provinces sending  26 Liberals and'11 Conservatives  to the House.    Ontario and Quebec send 89 Liberals and 69 Con  servatives ;   while west of   the  Lakes the allignment is 18 Liberals and 17 Conservatives.    In  many of the constituences, notably in Quebec,   the majorities  ,W-ere=small=at=the=last=electionr  and the change of a few votes  would greatly alter the complexion of the House.  These figures show the Conservatives just what they have to  overcome in order to carry the  country.    The situation is somewhat peculiar because of the remarkable way in which the Dominion House is divided along territorial  lines.    The coming contest will be one of those in which  I a small number of votes  may  1 produce very important changes.  The chief uncertainty  is as to  I how Quebec will go. At the most  jthe Liberals only hope to make  ! small gains in Ontario, but on the  j other hand the Conservatives are  : very   confident   that   they   will  greatly reduce the Liberal contingent from that province. They  also expect to cut down the government majority in Quebec to  ,the vanishing point,  Two Priests will Consecrate new  Church next Sunday  Next Sunday morning, at ten  o'clock, Rev. Father Wagner,  O.M.I; and Rev. Father le Jeune,  O.M.I.,- will celebrate the first  Mass in the new Catholic Church,  recently completed in the Diamond Vale Townsite. It is expected that there will be a large  attendandance of local Catholics,  as well as a number from out of  town points.  The new church, which is a  handsome structure, is .located  upon property which is the gift  of Mr. Jesus Garciai ' It* is  equipped with a handsome bronze  bell, the gift of Mrs. Garcia,  which is the product of the best  bell manufacturers in the world.  Even in France, where it was  manufactured, it is considered a  fine example of the bell-maker's  art.  .. The.choice of a name for the  new edifice was made without  any. difficulty, it being decided to  name it the Church of the Sacred  Heart,  The edifice is a credit to the  Catholics of the city and district,  and is handsome addition to the  sacred edifices of Merritt. Funds  have been readily ' forthcoming  during the last few months, and-  Father Wagner expresses the  hope.that the entire debt will be  dissolved within the next few  years. ^ - ���  -Father le Jeune.^who' will say  Mass with Father Wagner .on  Sunday, has been doing missionary work throughout this section  of the province, for the past  twenty-five years and is, very  well known to and popular among  the old timers of the valley.  In future Mass will be celebrated here every third Sunday,  at ten o'clock, with Catechism  and Bible class at two o'clock  and Benediction in the evening  at seven o'clock.'  INLAND COAL & COKE CO.  Important    developments    in  connection with the Inland Coal.  Mrs, James Lawler went down  to Victoria with her mother-inn  law on Wednesday afternoon,  She will stay with the latter for  some lime,  Hon. Thomas Taylor, M. P.P.,  G. 13.

It is understood that the company will  shortly commence the installation  of an aerial tramway and tipple.  Whether or not a coal-washing  machine, similar to that which  is now being installed at the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Company's plant, will be installed is  not yet known.  It is understood that the Inland  Coal & Coke Company have acquired from the Pacific Coast  Collieries, a tract of land beside  the railway spur upon which the  tipple will be erected. A survey  of this property was recently  completed.  It will be recalled that some  time ago, on the return of Mr.  Joseph Graham from the coast,  he announced that the incorporation of the holdings of the Coal  Hill Syndicate meant that a large  amount of money would be spent  on development workt At that  time the pfflc��r�� of the company  were undecided whether they  would ingtai an aerial tramway or  have a spl4r from the mainline of  the ft. V. R. It would appear  now that the idea of a spur has  been abandoned and that the  tramway will be installed.  Wm. Brown went up to Kamloops on a business trip on Wednesday.

An electrical firm has devied a special  mine-cleaner, which includes a  jet of compressed air for raising  the dust from every crevi-e, with  a bell-mouthed suction tubs be  hind the air-nozzle, and a separa  tor or filter that retains the dust  sucked in and permits the air to  escape. A single electric motor  drives both the suction fan withdrawing the dirt and the small  pressure fan that produces the  jet.���Popular Science Siftings.  l  THE CITY  HOTEL  QUILCHENA AVENUE  Newly established throughout.

For over two  hours a force of fully 500 men  fought with buckets,  axes and  anything else available.    The fire  started in the living-rooms over  Miller & Purdy's grocery store,  a lamp  being overturned by a  child. Before an alarm was given  the fire had gained such headway  that the first building and one  immediately   adjoining it  were  doomed.    Fortunately the night  was calm..    Otherwise the two  hotels and nearly every business  building *ih   Hope   would   have  gone.    The losses were:  Miller  & Purdy, grocery, about $3000,  insured  for $2500;   D.   Delbar,  Nome - Alaska   building,   about  $2500, partly  insured;   Furlette  Bros, barbers, building and furniture, loss over $1000,  not insured.  by its smell, they have been able  to stop its advance by erecting  dams or barricades v; along the  floor, building them higher as the  volume of gas increased and  keeping the airwithirfthejr little  enclosure comparatively ciean by  rude improvised fans.  Following an explosion, these  two gases become mingled and  form a mixed gas, possessing all  the dreaded qualities of each,  which is known as after-damp,  and it is the mixture of gases  which destroys any life that may  remain following a mine disaster.  ���Atlantic Monthly.  v..  VOGHT STREET  PHONE   24  Nicola Valley  Transfer Company  TRUCKING AND DRAYING  A SPECIALTY  U. S   FLAG IS BURNED  Buffalo, N. Y., August 1.0.-A  dispatch from London,Ont., says:  Thomas Midgely, who prides  himself on the title of "Yankee  Hater," publicly burned the Stars  and Stripes in the streets of the  town of Woodstock. A few hours  before, some one in a spirit of  mischief had nailed an American  flag above the door of his shop.  When Midgely saw the flag he  called his neighbors around him,  and walking to the middle of the  street, lighted a fire and burned  the flag. Then he scattered the  ashes about the street "that the  horses might trample them under  their feet."  His action was applauded by a  large crowd. A local newspaper,  which is strongly opposed to reciprocity, refers to Midgely as a  man '' whose heart rings true  with loyalty and patriotism."  American residents will bring the  incident to the attention of the  consular authorities with the object of obtaining an apology from  Midgely.  THE CAMORRA TRIAL  Over four months and a half  have passed since the Camorra  trial began, and it can scarcely  be said that the court is half done  with this case, which has no precedent, at least in Italy. Complaints have been expressed : in  Italy against what they consider  the excessive interest of the American press in the Camorra' revelations, as Italians think it is a  pity that such a trial should have  coincided with the celebration of  the Italian Jubilee, when'-the  young kingdom desired above all  to show to the world the progress  made in the last fifty years; '  This way of looking at it is absolutely mistaken. Indeed, the  coincidence which is^so deplored  is a matter for congratulation, as  it shows that it is possible now  to strike a determined blow at  the Camorra, which, would have  been impossible fifty years ago,  and even later, when the public  life of the south was entirely  subject to the Camorra, which  was the chief factor in politics,  and master of city administrations.  Like the campaign against  brigandage, like the bank scandals, the Palizzolo and Nasi trials,  the Cuocolo murder case is one of  the painful but healthy steps  which Italy is taking to caned  the last remnants of corruption  inherited from the ancient regimes, and instal the reign of  morality. The work to accomplish is still hard and long, as is  proved at every day's sitting  here, where the power of the  Camorra is still demonstrated,  chiefly through the difficulty of  collecting evidence and the reticence of the witnesses, but no  one has dared to touch Captain  Fabroni and Privates Cappezzuti  and Farris, the heroes of. the  bitter struggle against the association, whoihipther times might  have lost their lives, and no one  has threatened either the Premier  or the Minister of Justice for not  stopping the trial.

Black damp, unlike white damp,  is heavier than air, a non-explosive gas which may be detected  by its peculiar odor. Again, unlike the other, its effect is to suffocate and extinguish fire. This  gas is so heavy and moves with  such a sluggish flow that occasionally, when miners have been  trapped in a mine following an  explosion and have detected the  black damp creeping in upon them  Imperfect Kidney Action  Causes Rheumatism  Rheumatism with its kindred ailments  ������Lumbago, Wry Neck, Neuralgia, etc.,  osually results from lodgments of uric  acid in the joints and muscles.  Now the chief function of the kidneys  is to properly filter this poison from the  blood.  Only when they fail to do this is  Rheumatism probable.  Kidney weakness starts in various  ways. A sudden chill, after perspiring  freely, sometimes settles in the kidneys  ���or an unusual strain may cause it.  Poisons which should be: filtered out  of the system are pumped back into the  blood, causing Uric Acid, the real cause  of Rheumatism, Lumbago, Wry Neck,  Neuralgia, etc.  In the early stages Nyal's Stone Root  Compound will stop it.  Will start your kidneys working properly so that, the Uric Acid is reabsorbed  anil eliminated. ,  Away goes your Rheumatism with it.

THE    ELECTION  Next Tjesday  evening    local  Conservatives  will  assemble in  their committee  rooms for the  purpose of choosing delegates to  represent the association at the  Liberal-Conservative Convention  to be held at Kamloops on Thursday next.    This  may really  be  regarded as the first gun in the  campaign.    As to whom the supporters of   Sir Wilfrid Laurier  will nominate next Mondays-there  is a considerable anioujjt^of curi-  osity manifest throughout Yale-  Cariboo ;  but, -looking over ^he  field, we fail to see that the$ "\|jll  be able  to "choose anyone||\0o  will  be likely tB^make it at'"all  interesting   for   sucfe^an   able  member as Martin Burrell:'%i;>  Dr. Wade, of the Inland Se%  tinel, A. D. Mclntyre, the Kamloops lawyer, and James Murphy,  of Ashcroft, are amohg those  mentioned as strong candidates  for the Liberal nomination next  week. Janiies Murphy is a former member of the legislature  for the Cariboo and a brother to  Justice Denis Murphy, the Royal  Commissioner in the Chinese immigration frauds investigation in  Vancouver. We doubt very seriously the ability of any one of  these men to make it interesting  for the Conservatives. The Grits  ���,&-'  may have a dark horse in training, and there is a considerable  amount of speculaton as to whom  he might be. y^'*  During the week we^hstve heard  it whispered thatjjM'cConnell.spf;  the Saturday Sunset, may be;;tfie'  " unknown:'y His chances $ouid  be much better'than any 6%tne  first trio. The fight-'he^has made  for the western sectiori��of..this  electorate has made him popular  throughout the district and in the  Okanagan country. We will.pay  him the compliment of saying  that he is probably the most  dangerous candidate the Grits  could put into the field. But the  rumor of a/dark horse may be  utterly unfounded.  Look at the matter in the most  sympathetic light possible, and  the task which Laurier has put  upon his supporters in this province seems most unfair. How,  for example, will a Grit candidate  be able to explain that he is a  lone contestant in a field which  should provide two members at  the very least. Yet Laurier, by.>  his refusal, based some say upon  fear, to wait for redistribution,  - leaves this enormous/electorate  ' in the same condition that i^wais  in at the last.general  election".  * The people of .YaleCaribod; if  ! the Liberals would%llow a delay  '. of   threa   months,  should.^elect!  [ three members to the Dominion,'  1 Parliament;   as   matters   stand' y^j^  * now, tbey have the inestimable  :: privilege of electing a lone adyo-  ^ cate of the interests of the best  ^ part of the Dominion.^  ]    Then how unsympathetic-the  general public are in regard tcj,  those concerned in the Chinese  frauds investigation.,���The stump-  orators ^hp^wili? foervack^isjtHe  country for the next two months  ��� will have indubitably a delicate  . task to perform. ��� '-'J   '  Then ^aim *ther:e| ar;ej suchj  matters as the whitewashing of  Lanctot, member for Richelieu,  who had his house-at Sorel painted at the expense of the Domin-  ��� ionfe gpyernmenfcH-*;�� Tbafc^little;  affair,...though solicitruslvy hushed  fey* the government, reeked so  pungently that his own supporters deem it wiser that he remain  in obscurity during the forthcoming campaign.  However, Conservatives do not  find it necessary to wash dirty  linen in this campaign. It is at  best a poor policy and will not be  indulged in. Take the case of  Jardine in the local house. What  did he gain by his pusillanimous  attackyon*^T!emPlernan ? Mr-  Templemah's organ, by the way,  the^yictbria Times; came out this  weekend Announced   that the  fruit-growing1 industry   of   this  province was of such infinitesimal  proportions, that what^reciprbcity  would do to it'iwouldPhot matter  much to the rest of: the province.  3��jr;ely Mr.Templemands a worthy  minister of the Crown when he is  unable to inform his editors more  accurately upon the resources of  this province !    Or is  that the  Times  believes that reciprocity  will adversely affect what is admittedly *one of/ithe greatest industries in  theSDominion���fruit  culture ?   Rather a curious  admission for the {organ of a minister which is supposed to have a  high regard forf,the interests of  ^e^gpplf*"of tl^-provlttcer ^-������-<v-  f^'Cotisideration of this remark-  able^braihstprm of the editorXpf  ���tne second-"Liberal paper of the  province   leads^us"'to 'another  phase of the reciprocity question.  .The Times argues that enough  fruit is not grow^n B. C. to supply  the'people of the province with  their needs,  particularly in the  matter of "apples.     It is   well  known'" that Fieliding and Patterson had no very up-to-date statistics to; use when they commenced their negotiations with Washington.    Perhaps that accounts  for their ignorance of the fact  that     Okanagan    fruit-growers  cannot   compete   in   Vancouver  with growers of Washington and  Oregon and California, on account  of a tight^iittle commission ring  whichrfmys culls"tfrom the States  ancTships  them| into the coast  cities cheaply, with the aid of the  nice  little  tariff! which  Laurier  and his associates are now proposing to r|move!j��*fS;S5��*r;:s'v  ^The^Weis^efi'n Grain  Growers'  Association^ members, complained  about||thejprice..of agricultural  implements!,"   A facile���''politician',''  Sir Wilfrid assured them that he  would try and relieve them of  their complaint land despatched  hi&minister to the States to dis-  cuss  tn'e?,,matter?   At the same  time another.^, minister   of   his,  Mackenzie   Kingy   was   gathering ghreat kudos unto himself for  his attack  upon the  machinery  trusts���The=Dominion=govern-  ment loudly  announced  that no  grasping   monoply   would   grab  age voter.that the Dominion  government might just as readi-  iy have directed its attention to  the nice little agreement between the agricultural implement  manufacturers of this country ?  A little touch of governmental  regulation there would have  helped the farmers far more ef-  fectly than using the tariff defence of this country as a football. Of course through' there  are quite a few staunch Grits  among the implement manufacturers of the east, and it would  never do to alienate their sympathy in the interests of the  farmer; now would it? Of  course not.  '; Next issue we hope to announce the candidates of both  parties. We hope the Liberals  will be able to adjust their little  difficulties without much friction.  John Millar is the new editor  of the Herald. He was formerly  proprietor of the Chilliwack New  Era and .has been engaged in  newspaper work' throughout the  province for years . past. He is  not a newcomer to the valley  having been here several years  ago. A staunch Liberal, we believe that he; will at last be able  to.give to the Herald some fixity  of IpurppseyyHitherto, ;; though  controlled by Liberals, its policy  has-been ostensibly independent  and actually violently partisan,  varying with the editors. If Mr.  Millar takes charge and control  we believe that we shall yet see  a live paper there.  HEALTH   ACT.

I������ THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, August lly 1911  TO PRESERVE MINE TIMBERS  The preservation of mine timbers by chemical treatment has  not yet   been   adopted   by   the  mining industries of Canada.   In  many   localities,    however,   the  distances  required  to transport  mining   timbers   are    becoming  greater, poorer qualities of wood  have to be used and the annual  cost of the upkeep of mine timbering is becoming greater.   The  United States has already reached this state and has done much  in the treatment of mine timbers;  there it has been proven that a  treatment   of   creosote   or zinc  chloride decreases the destruction  due to decay, fire and insects ;  this increases the life of the timbers   and  decreases the  annual  cost of replacing mine timbers.  Timber used in mines has, on the  'average, a shorter life than wood  used for any other pnrpose.   The  surroundings in a mine are very  conducive to rot, which after a  period   of   three to   five   years  causes    the   timber    to   break,  crumble or become useless.    Experiments have been conducted  in  United States mines with a  row of   untreated   and   treated  mine   props alternately placed.  After eighteen months every untreated stick was weakened by  decay   and   broken,    while   the  treated props were sound   and  useful.    From various  practical  experiments  of this  kind with  different species of wood, important results have been obtained.  Fir has an average of five years  untreated life. Treated it lasts  twelve years. Hemlock, lasting  as-a natural wood 'five years? just  doubles its term of life when  treated, as does chestnut and  tamarack. Spruce is one of the  species ; which decays quickest  when    untreated,   lasting ; only  valuable metals of the same group  had been found in paying quantities at   the   Granite-Poorman  mine.    For the past month a few  Nelson   men  who heard of the  discovery have been staking all  the available ground lying in the  vicinity of the dyke in which the  chief values are found and which  extends for many miles in  the  direction of  Eagle   and   Forty-  nine Creeks.     Many scores   of  claims have been recorded at the  government offices.    At present  there is hardly a foot of unstaked  ground in the territory supposed  to be traversed by the dyke which  has been proved to contain vast  quantities of high-priced metals.  Samples were sent for assays to  Butte and  Ottawa in  order to  make  absolutely   sure   that   no  mistake had been made as to the  existence  of the group  of five  metals, platinum, iridium, palladium, rhodium and osmium.    The  result  was that answers   came  giving returns which especially,  considering the low cost of mining ore from dyke and the cost  of treating it, make the operation  of the properties upon which the  minerals exist amazingly profitable.  ADVERTISING POINTERS  Macaulay says, -in, one of his  essays, that "Advertising, is to  business what steam is to machinery, the grand propelling power.'" That, however, was before  the advent of electricity as a  driving power. But the maxim  remains as true, and is far more  widely acknowledged now than  in Macaulay's days. Yet, there  are, even in these days of advertising, some business men who  profess not to believe in advertising in any form.    They argue  that their business already pays,  three years; if treatedit will last I and that they, -therefore, see no  twelve years, thereby increasing use in  advertising.     They are  its life 300 per cent. To sum up,  wood preservation not only prolongs the life of durable timbers,  thus decreasing the annual consumption, but also permits the  substitution of inferior species,  whose use considerably reduces  the drain upon the more desirable  kinds.  KOOTENAYS' VALUABLE METALS  Not for many years has there  been so much excitement in the  Kootenays over a mining discovery as that which has followed  the announcement of A. Gordon  French that platinum and other  content with a certain modicum  of success, and are fearful of  spending a few hundred dollars  lest no immediate returns are  forthcoming. These people seem  to forget that, as a general rule,  in these days of stress and competition, there is no standing  still; it is either going forward  or backward. They contend also  that it is all right for the big  business men to advertise ; that  they have plenty of capital and  can go in for it on a big scale,  the only way���they argue���that  pays. But how did these big  firms start their campaign of advertising?   Many of the biggest  A Gurney-Oxford is as  prompt as young Appetites  There is no delay; the children never have to woH for meals when  you have a Gurney-Oxford in the kitchen.

MERRITT MERCANTILE COMPANY  advertising men of the present  day started on a few hundred  dollars the first year and increased their "appropriation for publicity as their business grew.  Eleven years ago one well-known  patent medicine firm spent exactly $527 the first year of their  advertising campaign ; last year  they expended over $200,000 in  this direction. That instance is  only mentioned because it was  published in a recent report of  the firm referred to: but, of  course, "there are others."-  It may be taken for granted,  however, that as a general rule,  unless the goods advertised are  good goods," all the advertising  in the world will not prevent  ultimate failure. People will  often buy what is advertised, but  if the goods turn out a "fraud"  they will probably inform other  people. If, on the other hand,  the goods are "all right," they  will, when required, send repeat  orders, and possibly recommend  the goods to other people. It is  the accumulative results thus  obtained that makes advertising  pay.  Advertisers,   especially   those  just starting, sometimes say that  they do not mention havingjseen  the advertisement in such*;and  such a  publication.     Now,   for  one reason or another, there are  some people who do not remember or care to say, when buying  something they saw advertised  in a paper, in -which publication  the    advertisement    appeared.  Whatever the reason, the majority of people who have seen and  acted on the recommendation of  an  advertisement  omit  to give  credit where credit is due.    This  is well understood by experienced  and successful advertisers. There  are indirect was of tracing results  from   advertising.      These   are  learned,   partly   by   study,   and  partly by experience, the greatest  and most reliable teacher.    Some  journals publish a short notice  requesting readers who reply to  advertisements to mention^ where  they   saw   the ' announcements.  Even then;  many readers omit,  from oversight or forgetfulness,  to give the information which is  so helpful to the advertiser, the  purchaser and the proprietor of  the publication. With experience  an advertiser soon learns which  journals are paying him.    Other  publications give  their guaranteed circulations.    But this is by  no  means to be entirely  relied  upon as a sure criterion as to the  advertising advantages of certain  journals   for   particular, goods.  , There are certain journals which  have a higher  class  circulation  than others ; some have a better  drawing=or=buying^capacity-than=  others, irrespective of circulation.  For instance, the New York Times  and the New York Tribune have  each a wealthier and better educated class of readers than the  New York Journal or the New  York World.    If you are advertising a certain class of goods,-  such as rare china, books, pictures, articles of virtu, etc., the  two Jormer papers would probably pay you better than the two  latter, although the Journal and  the World have much larger circulations.    If you are fortunate  enough to own a castle, mansion  or a shooting lodge in Scotland,  and desire  to   let or   sell,   you  would be more likely to meet a  customer   through   the  London  Times   or   Morning   Post   than  through the Daily Mail, notwithstanding that the latter paper  has a vastly greater circulation  than the staid "old thunderer "  and the polite and genteel Morning Post.     Both   these   papers  have large sales and select readers/including   nearly   all    the  wealthy people of Great Britain.  h  !:1  Beautifully situated on the Tulameen River 14  miles west of Princeton, B.C., in the Similkameen  district.

(���isil  THE "ONLY GENERAL"  The appointment of Field Marshal Lord Kitchener, British  Agent to Egypt seems to have  satisfied everyone. The status of  the British Agent, to |Egypt will  probably be improved, a more  important title- and a higher  salary attached.  Command of the British troops  on the Mediterranean, heretofore  held by a general at Malta, will  be transferred to Lord Kitchener.  The home country expects him to  crush with a str ng hand the  growing dissatisfaction of the  natives in Egypt.  It was   through his   military  genius that the army in Egypt'  was rehabilitated.     He became  sirdar,   or   commander-in-chief,  and firmly established the supre-  macy of Great Britain  in  that  country.  Lord   Kitchener's   latest   appointment makes him indirectly  the successor of Lord Cromer,  the predecessor of the late Sir  Eldon Gorst, who is known as the  maker of Egypt, and was British  Agent and Consul - General in  Egypt from 1853 to April 12,1907,  when he resigned.  Two important events occurred  during Cromer's "agency" in  Egypt. In 1883 the restored  Khedive abolished the joint control of England and France, and  and on the. recommendation of  the British, appointed an English  financial adviser. The Anglo-  French con vention���of^ApriL4,,  cured the appointment' of Lord  Kitchener as commander-in-chief  of the Khedive's army.  1904,   further   removed   restrictions    which   encumbered    the  management of Egyptian finance.

Considerable' significance is attached  to the visit to the Valley this week of  Frederick Keffer, consulting engineer  for the British Columbia CopperjCbrri-  pany, who spent three days in; the city.  It is understood that coal strike in the  Crows Nest somewhat disorganized  the arrangements of the^Br-GrCopper  Company in regard to their coke supply. For some time past it has been  understood that the company would endeavour to acquire coal properties of  their own with a -view to obviating  such difficulties in the future. Whether  or not Mr. Keffer was here for that  purpose, is not yet disclosed.
