Jurymen Create Sensation
A despatch from Bellevue.dat-
ed Dec. 19tli says: '-The investigation into thecau.se of the
death of tho thirty-one men
killed in the explosion in the
mine here on the 6th began
this morning with representatives of all interested parties
present. The first witness examined was James Burke, secretary of the local union, who
gave evidence relating to the
notice wired the provincial inspector as to presence of gas in
the mine. Dr. Malcolmson followed and at the close of the
examination the foreman of the
jury, Mr. Cameron, rose to object to the scope that the investigation was taking, that the
oath only obligated the jury to
hnd that the men met death
because of the explosion did
not come within their consideration.
Counsel Campbell for the
government, O. M. Biggar for
the Western Canada Coal Co.,
and Mr. Mackie, all objected
seriously to such a construction
and T. M. Burnett, another jurymen, refused to go on if he was
required to go into the cause
of the explosion, saying that he
had known that to the case,
when he was sworn he would
have refused to take the required oath, as he was prejudiced in the case. After some
further arguments at tho counsel, the coroner adjourned the
sitting to 1:30 o'clock.
Great interest is being taken
in the proceedings and the unexpected action of the two protesting jurymen is causing
much comment, Mr. Mackie
stated that the action of those
two men might be construed as
contempt of court and it might
be that the best results could
not be obtained by the continuance of the case before them.
Mr. Campbell is wiring the
government at Edmonton for
instructions as to what procedure to adopt under the very
peculiar conditions arising out
the peculiar stand taken by the
two jurymen.
The Coroner's Inquest.
Coroner Bieasdell, of Fernie,
continued the adjourned inquest on the body of Chas. H.
Bomford on Tuesday evening.
A few witnesses were examined. Constable McCuish also
rendered an account of the sad
Lowery's UpjitP Stope
The following document was
also produced:

from all blame, it was purely

The verdict of tho jury follows :
We your jurors, empanelled
to enquire into the death ot the
late Chas. H. Bomford, lind
that the said Chas. H. Bomford
died on Dec. 14th, 1910, nt the
hospital at Hosmer, B. C. from
the effects of a bullet wound
from a pistol discharged in the
hands of one Alexander McCuish at Camp 3 of tho Elk
Lumber Co., 1 j miles south from
the town of Hosmer, on Thursday, Dec. 8th at about 1 o'clock
p. m. We find that the cause
of death was from peritonitis
caused from the effect of the
above mentioned bullet wound
and that the same was purely
accidental and wo find from the
evidence that no blame can be
attached to Alexander McCuish
in this matter.

Suuio years ago, tbe late Profoasor liowlund, of Johns Hopkins University,
testifying in a tease involving tbe Cataract Power Company, in answer to u
question on cross examination as to who, in his opinion, was tbe greatest
American scientist, replied, "I am."
After leaving tbe court room one of the lawyers ventured to criticise
tbe  answer  for  its efl'ect   upon  tbe  .jury, whereupon Kowlund exclaimed:
"Weill, what else could I say?   Wasn't I under oatbf"
There arc two kinds of swelled head. One of them is inflated with hot

AN" they're hangin' Danny De
in the morn —" the seeng ended
abruptly, in a cough and a splutter, and from chin to forehead the face
of Mr. William Wharton (otherwise
Willie the Wart) glowed a brilliant
sauguinary criinsun in tlie moonlight.
.Nut, however, by reason of any enibar
rassineut, confusion, or anger, ou Mr
Wharton's part. The effect was due
wholly to the large, somewhat overripe
tomato that had landed with force aud
mathematical precision directly upon
tbe point of his retrousse nose.
"Big Dan" O'Hara resumed his recumbent position with a grunt of satisfaction.   "De ne.x' time 1 bounce a rod;
Ace yer nut, see?" he declaimed gluwer-
t^fce-iy.    "I ain't a goiu' ler tell yer ter
Hi up again, Willie!"
.JrTlie   Wart  carefully   wiped   his   face
with   a   wild grape   leaf   culled   from  a
vine  that  covered   the   low  stoue   wall
against which lie had been leaning,
"Ain't no call for gettin' tabasco
about it!" he replied in a tone, equally
aggrieved, surprised, and apologetic.
"There warn't nothin' personal intended in that ther' song, Dan! ".
"I ain't talkiu' about thnt song, I'm
tulliin' about any song," growled
O'Hara, iinappoasocl. "S'pose we want
th' whole county gettin' wise ter us.
Dis aia't no bleioinin' picnic!"
The Wart settled his meager form
once more against the stone wall, ami
yawned. "Ilow'tl I know."' he return
i'd lazily. "Youse ain't toiil be nothin'.
What's'th' Iny uny ways? What're we
here fer—fifty'mile's from Casey's.'"
He glanced disgustedly up at the
moonlit sky, faintly visible through lhe
arching branches above him, uml then
peered gloomily over tin* wall into the
wide Held of corn that intervened be

child of the slums, motherless, aad
se than fatherless, the Wart had
grown up thc associate of criminals
iioin babyhood. Ilis education was as
limited as his ingenuity could contrive
aud a paternal government permit. The
streets had been his playground, thc
more: successful crooks bis heroes, and
the history ot their crimes his principal
So the Wart had become a crook as'
naturally, and with as little compunction, as another man might become a
doctor or a lawyer, nnd had drifted
through the various branches of the pro-
, fession with thoughtless good-nature,
I and no particular effort, though his
.crookedness was more the result of environment, breeding, and circumstances,
than innate criminality, and perhaps
"Big Dan" had a share ia it, also.
Human nature is very much alike in
all classes, aad the worship of the fresh-
' |man for thc 'varsity football hero is
r no greater than that of the street waif
for the leader of the ward gang. "Big
Dan" had been the Wart's boyhood
idol, and now that they were both full-
fledged "yeggs" he still looked up to
the older man, aud was accustomed to
follow him blindly.
Hence when Dan had ordered him to

as they ran.
Halt-way across the young man
stumbled, fell, and lay ,1s if stunned,
while the two "yeggs" disappeared
down the wooded road. The sudden flaring of lights, the hoarse yells of men
and screams of women warned them
that the house was thoroughly aroused.
They did not run far, however, for as
soon as they reached the cornfield Dan
habited, anil after a moment's rest proceeded to lead the way leisurely through
it and into the woods.
"Dat," he remarked casually, "is
what 1 calls a artistic job—for all er
us! "
it was nearly noon when they reached
the city, for iu spite of the promised
misleading description aud direction
they took no chances, and it was not until they reached the third railroad station that they finally boarded a train.
'I'he news of the robbery was already
iu the papers, as tlie cries of tlie newsboys attesteit, much to the Wart's surprise.
"Dat's er little t'ing fer a extra,"
he remarked contemptuously, Dan did
not reply, but he bought a paper, and as
soon as they were safe in liis room opened it eagerly.
"Yah," 'hi' yelled exultantly, "th'
darned little mutt! I t'ough so. T'ought
ye'd double cross Dan O'Hara did yer—
yer—" he paused, lacking words sufficiently vituperative, and proceeded
more calmly.
"Oh, I'm th' wise guy, I am! Listen
here! " he added to the astonished Wart,
"dere warn't no cheap jewels in dat
case, see? Dere was a bunch er ice wort
thirty thousand bucks, an' ten thousand
in cash—er hundred century notes, see
de old guy'd got from th' bank ter pay

merest Ijeroy—dat's th' mug dat put
up th' job—was 'er goin' ter crook us

The Wart's brows drew together ia a
vicious frown. "Well, he ditl, didn't
he?" he growled furiously.
Dau grinned, and drawing a black
morocco jewel case from his pocket
slammed it on the table with a bang.
" He did not I " he exulted. "It 'ought
I was on ter his lay, an' wheu he described th' box, I weut an' got one like
it—he didn't know th' dif iu th' dark,

He laughed loud and long, while the
Wart stared in gloating amazement at
the black case, that held the fortunes of
Almost unconsciously he leaned over
and touched it caressingly, as though to
test its reality. As he did so his eye
fell upon a picture in the paper lying
upon the table, and suddenly he became
rigid, staring as if fascinated, at the
portrait of a girl. Next to it was that
of a youug man, and above one of an
elderly gentleman.
For a moment the Wart .glared at the
three portraits, a dozen unaccustomed
emotions following each other ou his
vice-seared face. Then, witli a strange,
sinking fear he allowed his eyes to fall
slowly to the caption beneath the pie-
lm*os, ami painfully spelled out the

the latest Westchester burglary,

whose engagement to Miss lleatherly will shortly be announced. Mr.
Leroy himself lost a considerable
For a long time the Wart sat immov
able, only his lips moving silently, quite
unnoticed by Dan, who was gloatingly
examining the jewel case preparatory
to breaking it open. Then he straightened up stiffly.
"Dan," he said softly, "do youse
remember—Nell?" and tliere was a sudden, wonderful, and unexpected tenderness in his voice as he pronounced the

but even his harsh voice softened a little

"No," returned the Wart gently.
"We went uptown. I—married her,
Big Dan nodded. "Dat's good," he
said simply.
"I married her," repeated the Wart
humbly, almost apologetically, "an' we
had a little joint up-town—just us two.
You know what I've had, Dan, an' what
I've been—I hadn't never lived before

shook his head vaguely, with embarrass

head sank upon his breast, while Big
Dan shuffled uneasily. Then suddenly
he sat erect. "An' elo youse- know who

blankly. ]t had not occurred to him
that Dau would be involved. "But she
aiu't a goiu' ter marry dat crook!" he
continued hotly.    "Not if "
"Ah! croak th' mutt!" interrupted
Dan contemptuously, "I'll help "
The Wart sprang up, leaning half
across tbe table.
"Alt' bavin' her bustin' ber heart

she sha'u't marry dat mutt, and I sez
dis swag goes back! Do you get dat,
Dan  O'Hara?    Dis swag goes  back!"
Big Dau sprang forward anel seized
the box, his face growing bard anil
grey, and his narrowed eyes glittering
"Say! Y'ouse are nutty!" he snarled, anil even as he spoke his right hand
flashed to his hip. But the Wart was
too quick for him. Twice he struck.
The blackjack lauded true, aud Big Dan
erumpleel up.
The Wart wasted no time in carrying
out his programme. In a moment the
cuse was in his pocket. Then raising
the senseless man in liis anus, lie bore
him gently to the bed, laying him comfortably on thc pillows, The envelope,
containing the eigiit hundred dollars,
he took from Dan's pocket, ami removing only a fifty-dollar bill replaced it.
The two hundred earnest money- ho did
not touch.
Then he hurriedly started for the
eioor. but at the threshold paused, and
after a  moment  came slowly back.
"I'm sorry, Dan!" he saiel regretfully. "Youse an' me has been good
pals! Youse was always square wit'
me, too—au' now I've had ter do yer
up! I'm sorry, Dan, but—I had ter
pay my debt ter her.''
but many of the promises did not come
oft', aad the result was that the expedition went into debt to tlte tune of $17..,-
OOU. Since I have been back 1 have
been spending a great ileal of the time
paying off this debt. I had paid off

myself 1 am lecturing, but to pay off
the liabilities of the British expedition,
anel everyone who comes tonight is helping in that work.
1 remember on one occasion the King
and l^uee.-n came on board the Nimruil
at Cowes. There wus a very rich man
with a very big yacht who came to me
ami told me tnat he had obtained my
autograph about the time of the previous expedition, and then got it for
the seconel time. When I went up to
London l thought 1 would touch hiin for
a bit, but he said: 'i don't take enough interest ia this to give you
money.' When 1 came back from the
expedition, 1 was at a diuner, and this
man came rushing up to ine. He said:
'Sir Ernest, I have your autograph
twice.' 1 replied: 'Oh, have you? Well
I have never been aide to get yours
where I want it.'
During my lecturing tour ufter the
first expedition 1 was living in Edinburgh then, a very intellectual city, the
modern Athens. I thought the people
of Leith would like tee hear me. 1 paitl
out $25 for a halt and $12,50 for advertising, When I drove clown to the place
I found one druiiken man, aa old woman
and ll couple of childr-'ii there. (Laughter.) I went out to the cabman who
hail driven me there aad said: -Look
here, if you can get anyone to hold your
horse you can eome in ami hear ine lecture.' Hut he saidi 'Oh, no, thank
you, sir. I'ui all right where I am.'
(Laughter.) But despite these discouragements, I was not going to give up;
I went on to the bitter end. Finally,
about twenty-five persons turned up—
twenty-live at a shilling a head. I told
my wife when I got home that twenty-
jive shillings hud been roalized, but she
said: 'Oh, no, there has not; for I sent
Ihe'e.uok and one of tin- maids, and two
shillings must be taken off for them.'

noted English explorer, whose
quest of the South Polo proved all
but successful, addressed the members
of the Canadian Club, the gathering being one of the largest in tho history of
the club. The guest, who was received
with great enthusiasm, said:
I want to thank you very much for
the very hearty applause with which
you have greeted me, and also because
so many of you have been interested
enough to turn out and hear me speak.
I am going to speak again tonight, and
I hope you will be tbere, too. I am not
going to tell you much about the expedition now, because you don't want to
hear the same thing twice. I speak
quite frankly about the desire I have
thnt you should como tonight; because
when I tell you about the formation, the
initiation, of this expedition, you will
realize that  it was a pretty hard pro-
in connection with a lecture which he
delivered at Portland, Maine. Six
months afterwards he mot a mau who
said to him: "I heard your lecture at
Portland, and I enjoyed it very much.'
Whereupon Mark observed: 'So you
are the man who was there, are you?'
The Antarctic is a very interesting
region. What struck me most in the
course of my travels through this wonderful country of yours, with its myriads of farms and magnificent mountain scenery, was the similarity between the mountains here and those in
the Antarctic. Yours, of course, are
clothed with forest; I am not talking
anything about the snows of Cunuda,
Hint sort of talk hns all been done uwny
with. (Laughter.) But the resemblance
between the mountains of Canada and
the mountains of the Antarctic is certainly remarkable. We discovered and
mapped out over a hundred mountains,
ranging in height from 5,000 feet to
I'l,024 feet. Those mountains wero a
wonderful sight to us. After marching
live eluys, through n dense fog, ut the
rate of about sixteen miles a day,
full view of great mountains, which no
man bail ever soon, we began tei climb
the longest glacier in lhe world. It is
about 140 miles lung. We climbed to
a height of over 10.1100 feet, and here,
on n grent plateau, with tin- wind blow
ing over from the South, the temperature never once rose ubove zero, and
was frequently so much us forty degrees
below. We wenl ou until the clothes
we stood iu became badly worn. Our
bunts gaped, and as we walked the heels

almost thee sume painful effect, (Laughter.) We went on until the third of
.Innuiiry. On January 3rd, Inst yoar,
we realized the unwelcome and painful
fact thai we were not going to reach
the South Pole. We were reduced to
eighteen ounces of food per man, whicli
was not enough for body heat, let alone
to supply muscle wastage. We found it
more difficult to carry J50 pounds per
man than it had been to carry 250
pounds per man a fortnight before. We
made a depot on this plateau, and I asked my three companions if they were
agreeable to a further shortening of
food, and these three men agreed, as
they always did. They gave mo many
valuable suggestions, which I found
very useful, and wc stayed with it until
the time came when we had to turn
back. Wc turned eventually, and when
we got back to seo level wc came across
a depot which we had made two months
before. We were so short of food we
had to cut meat from lhe bones of a
horse which had been dead two mouths.

RAILROADS may be safe enough for
the passengers, but they seem
fatal to the ' workers wlio man
them. It appears, from an article in
McCluer's, that thc list of killed and
injured is so appalling that it will take
only a few years to maim or kill all the
men now working on our railroads,
necessitating the recruiting of an equal
number of new men to replace them.
This is a severe drain ou the country's
supply of able-bodied men. equal to a
continuous war. Mr. John M. Gitter-
man, who writes this important survey
of industrial and vital disaster, traces
its cause to the difficulty of railroad
mon or their widows and orphans iu securing damages from the rouds. As he
puts it:
"The railroad has to pay for an injured passenger; therefore' it takes
pains not to injure him. The railroad
has to stand the loss of a damaged loco
motive; therefore it takes pains not to
damage it. The railroads do not, in
general, have to pay for killed employees; therefore they kill one iu every
two hours. The law throws the whole
burden of industrial accident on the
toilers; the protection that this affords
the employer simply oiicourngos his negligence and increases the number of
mishaps. The railroads are not philanthropic institutions. Where the law exempts them from responsibility, they
will hardly assume responsibility for
While the proportion of the killed to
the whole number employed has remained practically constant at about >/s of
1 per cent, for the last twenty-one years
in spite of safety devices, iii that'tiine
the proportion of injured bus quadrupled:
"Whereas once in two hours, month
iu and month out, a conductor, brake-
man, switchman, or railway laborer perishes by accident, one is maimed every
six minutes. Last year (i.4 per cent, of

States were injured; thus the chances
are that no one can escape accident for

fact that all the many distinguished hunters who visited the province during the past season returned to their homes delighted
with the fine trophies secured.
There were many of such hunters
in the field, and all had rare good
luck. During Mr. Bryan Williams' own stay of eleven days in
Lillooet, he counted no fewer
than i>5o head of mountain sheep
and deer. The former are supposed to have belonged to a band of
about 160 frequenting the locality
-..d which arc multiplying rapidly
—the Montana brown sheep or
common big horn. Mr. Honey-
man, one of this season's big
game hunters from abroad, reported sighting 87 sheep and 82
deer in a single day, while he
himself secured the limit of two
sheep, two gnats and two deer,
all splendid trophies, in the short
space of eight days.
For the further protection of
thc game, the governmei 1 has
just adopted orders-in-council establishing three leserves, or rather enlarging two existing game
reserves, and formally creating as
a game reserve the large tract in
East Kootenay thai for some
time past Ins 1 an operated as
such by successive orders-in-
square miles area. The game hc.-_
in has been well protected dining
the past two seasons by present

Island wapiti,   a.i." are now   becoming so numerous that by next
season it is hopyl that protecti->r.
may be for a shjrt period withdrawn and the hunters obtain a
chance to secure some excepti m
al tfophies.
The difficulty i.i acceding to
the several requests that have
been made for an ea.liei open sea

found in the fear t:.at an inrush
of hunters w*iuld o-cur and promiscuous slaughter .'ollow, whereas if the spor'.-imen would lji.it
discriminate and pick off only
the old bulls, iood instead of
harm would rial'v result. The
feed conditions and the climnte
in this district are :deal for the
game, and there are no predatory
wolves to work destruction
among the herds as on Vancouver
island, the result being that the
Kootenay wapiti have greatly increased in numbers during the
past few years.
Speaking of the suggestion that
European chamois should be introduced in the new provincial
park, of which Butte lake is the
heart, the chief game warden
voices a discouraging opinion. He
estimates that it will cost approximated)* $6,000 to deliver in this
country a herd of ten chamois,
while the weather co-ditions in
the northern p rt of t'e island
arc nut, in the light nf presen'
information, especially favorable
fur the chamois; and the wolf

young men into politics would
mean the infusion of new life and
vigor into the old established
parties. They would be less inclined to bow to the existing order of things, and less subservient to party exigencies, and they
would be actuated by a more sincere desire to further the best interests of the country than those
who have grown old in the service of one party and in the worship of set ideals.

Young Men in Politics.
A plea for the young man being
permitted to take a larger share
in political activities is made by
the Toronto News, whose view, a
commendable one, is:
One of the most notable facts
in British politics is the number
of young men who appear as candidates. This is noticeable not 1
only in the rank and file, but
also in the more influential positions. In Canada it is considered
a matter for comment if any
young man enters into political
life; in England it is an everyday occurrence. There is a mistaken idea here that a man must
be well on in years before he
should take an active part in politics, and fitness for public life
seems to be regarded as dependent on advanced years. It is difficult to account for the prevalence
of this opinion, but there is no
doubt of its existence. • Another
point worthy of notice is that this
idea is only confined to politics.

Black Taffeta and White Lace Hat
for ia certain style ol hat, and while some are Blmpler in ele*
liign tban otuoru, tliere ure few, if any, that are so simple in,
they appear.
Like the simple gowns, every line anil detail lias liieen
most carefully thought out in tlie Individual wearer anil the
hat has lieen most carefully constructed before it can pass
thc gauntlet of the niaBter milliner's scrutiny. All of wliich
takes time anil skilled labor, and, although the prices asked
ami obtained are fabulously high, time ami skilled labor are
expensive and must be reckoueed with iu calculating the cost,
.   .   .
The constant change of style is terribly trying, not only
to the womau who has to calculate closely what she spends,
but to tlie woman who is intent upon always being well
groomed nnd who, having spout many hours in selecting lints,
suddenly discovers that a new importation lias arrived in
wliich each and every model is entirely different from any
siie has in her present collection. It requires considerable
selfcontml not to be swayed by the continual change, and to
continue to wear the originally chosen hats with that serenely
conscious, self-possessed manners that a thoroughly satisfactory hat bestows upon the wearer thereof.
Are large or small hats the most fashionablef is a question continually asked and one thut is hard to answer.
i season when smaller or vaieu*.- more
ing hats were worn, and yet never was there a season
when sucli immense ones were fashionable, and also tlie medium sized hat is eagerly sought for. At one time it was
emphatically stated that small hats in the daytime and large
hats in the evening solved the problem, but. now, with the
Oriental style of wrapped turban shape chosen for tho evening and the enormous, all-enveloping hat made of crin or
straw, trimmed with bows of tulle or ribbon and many liowers
and unmistakably intended for day wear, all ideas are changed again, and it is indeed a difficult task to steer correctly
along the winding path that Dame Fashion elects her subjects
shull tread.
Toques and turbans are tremendously popular, but quite
distinct in slyipe and style from what were called by those
names a year ago. The general outlines nro quite unlike. The
head size is always large so that tlie hat goes down far on
thc head, and as this sometimes is unbecoming, nn inside
band, or halo, as it is called, has to be put in to raise the
lint from the head and show at least a glimpse of hair and
Fancy straw, wonderfully sceft and pliable nnd in every
conceivable color, is used in these hats, anel, treated ns though
it were tulle ur silk, is folded and pleated and fairly wound
arieiind the frame.    A stiff aigrette or bow of tulle, silk eer
velvet or a jewelled ornament is lhe trimming thought the
smartest, but within the last fortnight hnve been seen hats of
this description  where stiff sprays of roses have been the
trimming.   The hats are soft in outline, but the trimming is
always ctiiT and hard, iii sharp but must effective contrast,
Thore are toques made with brim of liowers aud crown of
I malines,  plain   or  iignred;  these  are  round  in   shape, quite
I large, and the liowers are of the small blossoms; tlio crown
c is extremely full, with ninny loops mid bows, generally black,
; nltliiHigh  there  are many with  the crown  of  silk  bows to
] mulch Ihe gown, while the flower brim mny be a lighter or
i darker shade of the same color,
c Willi lhe street costume, the simple tailor gown, is worn
I tliis seiuseen it much plainer, more suitable style of hat than
i was seen last year. Medium sizes and small shapes are the
' best, although there nre few of the larger shapes that ave in
. elided  iu the latest exhibit ions.
A  lint, something between a toque and turban in shape.
i thut  is popular, lits quite close to the head, is apparently
. smnll, although in reality i! is of medium size; it has a brim
i of hemp braid or crin that turns down-, the crown is of satin
; or silk, quite high and full, nnd at the left side is a large stiff
: bow of the silk or satin.    Another of the same description
hns ti black valvot crown with white straw brim and a beiw
eef white straw that looks like a piece of lnce.   Then there is
it modification of one of last year's meest  popular walking
hnls, with the brim rolled buck'toward the front and caught
witli ii fancy bow or still' feathers.   This your the shape nas ll
higher crown and n stilfer brim, hut the linos are almost the
snine*.    Rough straw nnd with the satin linish is smartest for
Ihis style of lint, and in all colors, ns well ns in black nnd
white, it is In constant demand, for it is generally becoming
nud must  prnclicnl.
I.cn-c i*. oi f tiie most fashionable trimmings this season,
bieth whitee cnul black, mul must beniitil'ul pieces of laco have I
l.e*e,ii taken from the family troasuro chest   and made up into
tlie, I ■ hnls tlmt nre see olToctivc and becoming, eer twisted
around tlie crown In most grucofu) style.
A licit hand ■ >i" white lnce on the brim Inside of ;e black i
crin lmt  Is extremely smart and the sharp contrast of the
white n gn lusl tlie black challenges uttontion at onco,   Tlion
when combined with ruses, pink, yellow, »■ • >■ I and white, there!
i-,  Material Ilmi  is so satisfactory.    A burnt  or Tuscan
rough straw with tho laco nrouud tho crown and a spray of
pink roses al the side looks equally well with a light or dark]
gOWtl and  i- Invariably becoming, while the white or black
entire lnce- lmt with aigrette or ruses bestows the finishing
touch in ce elciiiiiv and iiletui'osquo summer frock.
The double skirt has come into fashion once again, and
once agaiu must the question of the underskirt or lining be
most carefully considered, or the gown will lee a failure. Soft
silk or satin or silk finished linings are chosen preferably
nnd then a deep facing nr flounce of the material is put on,
over which falls tiie gown, a*nd if the lining is not perfectly
cut and lifted theu the task of making the guwn is most dif-]
ficult, of not impossible. With thc transparent materials
often two and sometimes three arc used in ureler lei gain the
desired shade of color, but this again is se. difficult a task that i
the amateur dressmaker will secure much better results if she
uses a. more expensive lining of silk or satin and a meere
closely woven fabric, not so close but that the color anel sheen
uf the satin will show through.
For the moment the exaggeratedly tight skirts are in
style, and even when the upper skirts arc lull the linings art
still extremely scant, su that the same effect is given, espec
tally when the fulness is gathered with the bias fold or band
around the ankles. This fashion requires to be most carefully dealt with, or the guwu will look vulgar and ugly; in
fact, too much care cannot be' given to copying llu* original
models, as the fashions of the moment are so exaggerated
as to be unbecoming to the majority of women. The lining
for the waist must be cut to lit tight around the waist, but
must have sufficient width across the bust and directly beneath the bust, for otherwise the lines of the ligure will be
completely spoiled. The seam from shoulder to waist line is
now thought better in the lining than the two darts, and it
is easier with it to give tho desired breadth.
Since the exaggeratedly largo hats show small sign of dying out, the hat box, large and clumsy as it is, must certainly
bc reckoned with if a girl cares to have every detail o. her
private sanctum perfect. Even if a pretty paper covered box
is thought sufficiently attractive for a closet, it certainly
will not do if the box is to be kept on one of the new hat
racks, which are now resorted to in small rooms where the
closet room is so small as not to admit of mure than two or
three hat boxes on its shelves.
These new hat racks, or, rather, hat box racks, are really
excellent in a small room. Made triangular in shape, they
will fit into an unused corner and can be made with enough
shelves to hold as many hat boxes as desired. The plain
wooden frame can be either painted the eoloi of the woodwork or of the room, or else rendered still more inconspicuous
by being covered with a bit uf the same paper as that which
adorns the wall. The hat boxes are then covered with the
same cretonne with which the room is hung. A French print
framed with gold or silver metal luce placed in the centre of
one panel of the box is must attractive.
These lint boxes nre already milch in demand feer prizes,
while for gifts or for sale at a "fair they nre still sufficiently
original to be eagerly sought. When not planned for any
special room or rack there is, of course, greater freedom iii
the choice of material and color.
For a rose colored boudoir, a Du Rnrrv pink muiro border*
ed about the box itself, ns well as the lid, with a good sized
French print placed both on the top of the box as well as un
nne or all panels is really beautiful, A well made hut beex
with wooden frame must be procured to cover, for nn ordinary cardboard box is not sufficiently strong to be worth the
covering. All the more expensive hats are now generally
sent home in these boxes having wooden framework, and if
a girl is not so fortunate as to possess such a box herself she
surely can beg, borrow or steal one from sume friend or
The prints, of course, must be pasted to the material before the box itself is covered. The braid can be either pasted
or sewed on, the latter method being a little more trouble
and infinitely more satisfactory in the long run. To buy the
correct, quantity of braid the box itself must first bc measured, for every lmt box today is a different size. The round
boxes, of course, take much less material, nnd for the square
box each side should be treated as a panel anel adorned down
each edge. The braid employed should be about an inch in
IT will be remembered that King (ieorgc V. wheu 1'rince of
Wales—two years ago on his voyage home from the Ter
centenary in the Indomitable, went below in the stokehole and shoveled coal under a boiler till he sweat like a
navvy. King (leorge will not be likely to shovel coal on a
man-of-war. There will be a number of princely diversions
which public opinion will lend him to eliminate. But he can
never lose interest in the navy; and he will probably know
even better than did his father the minutiae of thc latest developments of maii-of-wurisin.
For it is some years since King Edward was on ine sea.

tenderfoots who did not know a chap

and the progress of the children seems highly satisfactory.
A short performance, at which

sung solos very sweetly. The
Times wishes to extend to the
children its best wishes for a
Merry Christmas and a bright
and happy New Year.
The many friends of Mr. and

death of their infant son, who
was three months old. The
little fellow, who was remarkably large and robust looking
for his age, had been slightly
ailing the day before. Nothing,
however, seemed to be wrong
with him except a slight cold.
Next morning when his mother went to take him up she was
shocked to find him lifeless.
The funeral services were conducted at the home ou Saturday at 2 p. m. by Rev. Eby and
interment took place at the
local cemetery.
Mr. and Mrs. Morris are well
known in Hosiner, and have
the sincere sympathy of every
one hero.

We  all join   iu   wishing  the

What's The Difference.
Talking about war: a soldier
in Victoria leaned out of a barrack window and shot an officer.
No doubt they will hang him,
which seems absurd, as a lot of
money had been spent training
him in the gentle art of killing.
The difference, however, seems
to be that he killed a man
whom he hated, on bis own behalf, which is criminal, whereas
he should have confined himself
to killing somebody he did'nt
even know on somebody else's
behalf, whicli is glorious. Then
instead of being hanged he
would have been given a medal,
and possibly allowed to starve
to death on the embankment.—
D. G. McKenzie.
