which has for some weeks past boon

Wo must add onr quota to tho

It is a book of Ot) pages, bound in

different views of landscape, shipping, manufactories, stores and residences in ami around tho city, and
08 portraits of Victorians prominent
iu the government and business of

Tho first annual ball of Court
Eevelstoke, No. 7u3, I.O.F., took
place on Thursday night in Bourne's
Hall.    Elaborate arrangements had
been made by the committee to make
the event a success, and from every
point of view but the financial one it
was n complete success, aad reflects
great oredit on the management.   It
was anticipated  that at least 200
double tickets would havo been sold,
ami tlm floor of the large ballroom
(BOft. by 30ft.) would not lmvo been
overcrowded hud thero bef n double
the number of ladies present,   Compared with tho Now Year's ball at
Donnld,  tho attendance  wds very
meagre; but, then, thero is no doubt
that that "tony" resort takes tho lead
of any town in tho mountains in
torpsichorean or dramatic matters.
The ballroom was decorated with
flags and  trophies,  crossed rifles,
swords and axes, stag and buffalo
horns, whilo two or three huge skins
served   for  tapestry.    Evergreens
were plentifully distributed, and the
recesses were occupied by symmetrical specimens of young spruce aud
pino,  The Stars and Stripes and the
Union Jack hung peacefully side by
side, aud in the centre of the lower
eud of the room a Union Jack of
magnificent   proportions,   reaching
nearly from ceiling to floor, bore the
motto "Welcome to all," while on
either side were a splendid pair of
antlers.    Ladies' and  gentlemen's
dressing-rooms were provided with
overy requisite.    Although an entirely new one, the floor was everything that could be desired, grout
oare haviug been taken to render it
fit,    The musicians (violiu, cornet
and piano) were from Kamloops, and
gave great satisfaction.   Iu the 2nd
haif of the programme Mr. W. M.
Broun acted as pianist.   Mr. B, E.
Everson rendered most effloient service as director and floor manager,
and several of the figures, notably
No, 13, Navy Highland reel, were
highly amusing to the spectators as
well as the dancers. No. 17, a polka,
was changed to a " Rookaway," in
which three couples only attempted
the peculiar movement of tho dance
���Air. Everson und Miss Brown, Mr.

Tlie Question of Registration
Letter from the Provincial
The following communication from
the Provincial Secretary will make
it clear to many iu this town who
have heretofore beon quite at sea on
the matter the reason why titles to
lots in Revelstoke townsile cannot be
registered by present holders:
"Provincial Secretary's Office,
"Editor Kooteuay Star,���
"As frequent enquiries continue
lo be made respecting the difficulty
of dealing with titles to land in
"Farwell," I send you enclosed
memorandum for general information,
Revumoke Townsite,
"A Crown grant of this property
was issued by tho Province to Mr
Farwell in the year 1SS1.
"Subsequently Farwell's title was
attacked i.y the Domiuion Government, ami a suit brought against
Farwell by the Attorney-General for
Canada to recover possession of the
property from Farwell.
"This suit was decided by Judge
Henry in Farwell's favour, but upon
appeal to the Supreme Court Judge
Henry's decision was reversed.
"In the meantime Farwell's title
had been registered in the Land
Registry Office at Victoria. Although
judgment was given in tavour of the
Dominion Goieminent, ousting Far-
well from possession of the property,
no order was given repealing tne
Provincial  Crown grant, nor any
order to can.el Farwell's registration.
"The Registrar of Titles can only
recognise his own records, and until
some stop is taken to cancel Farwell's
title upon the records Farwell's name
appears there as owner, and no title
adverse to his can be registered,
"The Registrar reports that ho is
informed that the Attorney-General
for Cauada is about to take steps tot
caucel Farwell's registration.
"Until this is done thero doos not
appear to be auy way of registering
titles to tho Pevelstoke property acquired from the Dominion Government, and certainly tho Provincial
Government has no power to inter-

only sister, married, it was thought, much
beneath her, My father was a poor, struggling arlist, who had nothing but Ids tab

depend npou. Miss Kyrle, of Upton Hall,
might have married well; as it was she
gave the rich dowry of her love and beauty
to Gerald beige. As might he expected,
misery and poverty followed the unequal
marriage, and in a few years Gerald heigh
died, less of actual disease, than of a broken
Kven then, my mother was not allowed to
return homo, A .small annuity was settled
upon her, which she expended principally
in my education, Hut when her father
died, and her brother, Sir Mannaduke, suo-
eecded, he sent for us both to Lipton Hall,
and said 1 should take his name and be his
heir. Sir Marmaduko had another brother
away in India, reputed be to a millionaire.
1 am glad lo look down the long vista of
years, and know that my mother was happy
before she died���happy in the love of her
brother, in lho enjoyment of her home���
happy above all, in the thought that her
���son would one day be master of Lipton
She had heen dead more than live years
when a letter came from l'hilip Kyrle, written on his death-bod, teiling Sir Mannaduke his once large fortune was all lost j
and beseeching him to adopt and bring up
as his own child, Lancelot, his only son.
My uncle.real the letter with an expression ot dec]) gravity.
"What shall I do with two adopted
nephews?" ho said. "Miud, Report, 1 shall
keep my word to you. I will do my host for
your cousin Lance but you must be heir of
Lipton. .My sister was dearer to mo than
all ihe world. Besides, my brother never
cared much for mo, or 1 for him. My sister's
yon must succeed mo, although, In the eyes
of lhe law, Lancelot Kyrle is my heir."
I did not think much of those matters
then. It was pleasant onoilgll to be welcomed and feled as lhe heir of Lipton Hall; but
if my uncle had chanced his miud. it would
not have been a very great trouble to me.
Lancelot Kyrle came ; and from that day
until the day he died, I loved him bettor
than any other person on earth, save one.
Sir Marmaduko thought highly of him, too.
" Let there be no mistake, Lance,' 'he
used to say; "Rupert must he m. heir.

older, a terrible tragedy happened at Lip-1 and folding  it

ton Hall.   IHir uncle, tho good, kind
Baronet, died suddenly
One afternoon he bade me take a note to
Mr. Barton, his-olicitor, idling him to come
over on the day following, as he wished particularly to see him. He sat all the evening
over the tire in his old dressing-gown, refusing, tor the first time, tc dress for dinner ;
talking incoherently about Lance's commission, and my succeeding him. In the night
his valet fouud him dead, with a smile upon
his face,
We were heartily grieved; no unkind
word had ever crossed ids lips; iu him, wo
lost our best friend.
I need not tell you all the details of that
most sorrowful week when Lipton Hall was
in darkness and mourning for its kind and
indulgent master. When the funeral was
over, and we assembled in tho library for
the reading of the will, there was great consternation and distress, No will could bo
found. Mr. Burton said he had mado it;
my uncle's old friends Squire Thornbury
and Mr. Halo, had both signed it. The
dismay was uniyersal, for every old servant
had been remembered, Mr Burton said,
All search was in vain. Lawyers,friends,
servants, overy one joined in it; no nook or

I wish it wore a different story to tell. As
they sat there, Lanes gazing with loving
worship on the one being he ever loved,
there came on the quiet evening air a long,
horrible cry. Kven as it broke Ihe silence,
three terrified servants rushed in, saying,
" The Sepoys were coining !"
. For one moment, Mr. Arle seemed paralyzed ; then a cry, such as comes at times
from a dying man, came from him. He held
Beatrice in his arms, and hid her face on
his breast.
Lance went to the window.   It was true.

It was long after midnight, when I heard
a rap at my door,

" So it seems," was my reply Jmt when
the door opened, and my cousin stood before
me, I saw that no light matter had brought

sunken cavities is found at the foot of the
White Mountain, which lies iu a northerly

6,500 feet, or a little over a mile, and in

Fuji Mountain, the highest in Japan, also

750 feet.

It is to be greatly regretted that the
Dominion Government does not suiliciently
ee the importance of having an annual
drill for every battery, troop and battalion. The efficiency of the Canadian forces
now amounting to about forty-five thousand men in all brunches, would be
greatly improved by regular brigade drills
each summer, and the enthusiasm of the
volunteers would be stimul ited by tho recurrence of these camps of instruction.
In closing tbis sketch I feel that I must
give honor to an institution which is doing
a good work in raisingthe militia of Canada
to a higher state of elliciency, " C" School
oflnfantiy, established in New Fort Barracks, Toronto, under the command of one
of Canada's leading military men, Lieutenant Colonel Otter.
As the law makes it compulsory to hoM a
certificate from one of the schools before confirming an officer's commission, the immediate and vast benefit to our militia of having
three trained olficers ut the head of each
company and a thoroughly qualified staff
with each battalion must bo apparent.
" C " Royal School of Infantry accommodates from twelve to fifteen officers and men
each course of three months ; and the
officer or man going there for a lark finds
oul his mistake very quickly. Steady
work and close application to the numerous books placed in his hands are necessary to win the requisite marks to entitle
him to the coveted papers necessary to hold
a position of trust iu our militia force.
Officers receive pay at the rate of Sl per
day and rations, out of which are taken
their mess expenses, bnt tho nonuser of tobacco or wine generally has a few dollars
cominc to him at the end of the month. The
men receive 50 cents per day an.1, rations,
Each one receives free transportation to the
school, but there is no allowance for the
trip home unless successful in winning
papers, which of course means staying the
full time.
Arduous as maybe tho work in tho drill
sheds and on the wide expanse of common,
few officers who have passed a course but
look ahead eagerly for the time when they
shall have another three months to devote
to military duties.
The "Old Fort "and the "New Fort"
are the names which respectively designate
the abandoned quarters and the new group
of fine stone buildings half a mile farther
west on the shore of Toronto Bay. Both
the old and the new quarters are
close to the shore, which rises at the latter
place to a sodded lawn, on which are planted two heavy smooth-bore cannon mounted
on ship gun carriages. Through the weedy
embrasures of the old earth-works peep the
muzzles of a dozen small old smooth-bore
ship guns. All these are said to be of the
spoils of Sebastopol, and in their day flamed
against the stubbornly defended trenches
and wooden walls of the British besiegers.
In 18S5 the Govornment of Canada became aware of the necessity of an additional school for military instruction in Ontario,
and selected London, in tho western portion
of the province, as a suitable site. The
extensive and imposing three-story brick
barrack in the form of a huge crescent
dominates the crest of a slight eminence,
and affords a charming view of the
young "Forest City," as London the lesser
is called. The force here, as at Toronto, is composed of one company (D) of
the permanent infantry force of Canada,
and with the non-commissioned officers and
the school of instruction it makes up a borly
of abont 100 non-commissioned officers and
men. Lieutenant Colonel Smith, who wears
the medal and clasp of 1S80, is in command.
His staff is as follows : Surgeon, .\I, J.
Hanavuu ; captains, D. D. Young, R. L,
Wadmoro and R. Cartwright, and Lieut.
S. J. A. Denison. They turn out well-trained officers and men from this institution,
which is a proof of capable management.
Tlie officers of the Thirty-second and Thirty
third battalions acquire their training in
this school.
The Canadian volunteer asks for no hotel
comforts while performing his annual drill.
His hardy nature rejoices in the simple
equipment of the camp. He sleeps with his
nine comrades in a circular tent, in a pair
of blankets, laid on clean straw, sometimes
on tho bare ground. His accoutrements
cling to the centre pole by a mathematical
device of simple form. His food is cooked
in iron pots and pans over a fire in a hole ill
the ground, and is well seasoned with ashes
and dust. It is of the plainest, most substantial quality, served in till plates and
cups, The willow-bark tea cheers his soul
and strengthens him for the hard, steady
drill, buttoned up in a strong, heavy rod
coat, drawn closely by a hell and cross
belts. Ho cheerfully submits to the restraint of a soldier's life, all in return for
the honor of serving his country when called upon in time of danger.

There is a serio-comic side, however, to this

Tuesday���Jesus declared, it is true, that
those who follow His doctrine must expect
to be persecuted by those who do not follow
it, but He did not say that His disciples will
be the worse off for that reason ; on the contrary, He said that His disciples would have,
here, in this world, more benefits than those
who did not follow Him. That Jesus said
and thought this is beyond a doubt, as the
clearness of his words on this subject, the
meaning of His entire doctrine, His life and
the life of His disciples, plainly show. But
was His teaching in this respect true!-..

A Pastil e.
Mr. Algernon Blanoos was an exceptional
young man. In the comparative solitude
of his own soul he had thought out many
things, among others a life policy, which he
intended to pursue with the gravity befitting a man of high aims, serious convictions,
and twenty-two years.
Foremost among the " maxims " of this
modern Rochefoucauld was the following ;
"To love is to he abject ; to marry is to invite i nnuil" These sentiments enjoyed the
distinguished regard of their author, who
was a man of his word.
Her friends considered Elizabeth Fonueil
to be a unique young woman, The subject
of an expensive education and a cultured
environment, her acts were supposed to be
the result of cool reason and correct deduction. In the jtAtn.al intimr of this maiden
was written, in a chirngraphy as chastens the
sentiment ;   " Love Man���not men !"
Tins was at once her standard ami her re*

Social obligations culled Mr. Algernon
lllancose to Bar Harbor, whither he went
reluctantly, with a copy of " The KreuUer
Sonata " in his pocket.
Hither also had lied Miss Elizabeth Fanned, whose devotion to a Volapuk grammar
necessitated the restoration of her roses by-
worldly recreation.
Tho exceptional young man and the
unique young woman sat ou a narrow shelf
of rock, their faces toward the Kast,
" Dearest I" exclaimed the man.
" Mr. Blancos," answered the maiden,
