A New Novel.
"The Golden Bottle," by Ignatius
Donnelly, savors very strongly of Bellamy's " Looking Backward " in its
general features, It may also be likeued
to a cross between the productions of
Rider Haggard and Jules Verno. The
author, however, murks ont a line of his
own and is strikingly original in bis
Utopian dream of the Millenium. He
pleads that the work is design, d to explain and defend some of tbe new ideas
put forth by the People's Party in the
U.S. and hopes that the interest in it
mav not end with the events which g���vo
it birth. To lovers of the incredible
and romantic it just the very book, and
although the dream is perfectly impossible of accomplishment the story is
realistic and startling. But Ignatius
Donnelly is nothiug if not startling.

A British Columbian in Hawaii
Mr. Albeit E. Sutton, formerly of tbe
Glacier House, who is well kuown to a
large circle of our readers, send us the
following interesting letter from Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands:���
" Editor, Kootenay Staii,���Was very
anxious to hear Irom the scenes of my
former exploits once more and pleased
to get a glance of the Kootenay Staii. a
copy of which arrived by the s.s. Wuri-
moo to-day, Il i�� suid there is 'good
material in u small compass.' So with
the Staii. Wishing its editor overy success and renewed prosperity, While I
bask in tropical sunshine I still think of
thc suow olud Selkirks. not beiug exempt from trials and tribulations here
amongst tho puluis, cocoanuls and tropical plants too numerous to mention, It
is uow wiuter, and we are gelling lain
at intervals. No light showers, either.
The thermometer averages abont 75 degrees in the shade aud the mosquitoes
are ever ou the alert to do their duty by
day or night. We have I wo spe ies
here���the day and night shift, as they
are called, the latter beiug the champions. Then, again, we are ou the
verge of expectancy regarding the |,o-
litical situation. At present the Provisional Government is iu power, with
a probability of the ex-Queen being restored by Uncle Sam. Whether tin re
will be any bloodshed it is hard to say,
since excitement runs high on both
sides aud wild rumors are continually
in the air, A few more weeks will uo
doubt settle the vexed question. The
British warship Champion and the U.S.
Philadelphia and Adams lie peacefully
at anchor in the harbor. Uutil a settlement is arrived at all business is at a
standstill aud capital is kept locked up.
The natives are a happy aud contented
people. There iB a considerable sprinkling of Cbinese, Japanese, Portuguese,
Americans aud English, the two first
named having considerable business
enterprise, The great iudustry ou this
and the other islands is sugar. Next
comes rice, bauanas, pineapples, cocoa-
nuts and other tropical fruits, The
sunsets are delightful aud the soft
moonlight nights are glorious. Birds
are not numerous, excepting sparrows,
and they abound in ueurly every part of
the globe. Centipedes aud lizards are
plentiful on some of the islands, but not
of the deadly kiud, owing, it is said, to
tbe absence of minerals. There are
some very fine churches on this islaud,
the spiritual welfare of the people being
well looked after. A railroad runs from
here to Pearl harbour and Ewu Plantation���not a great length of mileage, 'tis
true, but better thau uone. The street
car service is rather primitive, still it
answers tho purpose. Tho towu is well
lighted with electricity, aud, taking it
all rouud, a persou soon becomes quite
attached to the place. The tine steamship Miuwora of the Australiuu-Cauadian
liue is off the reef aud is undergoing repairs previous to sailing for, it is rumored, Victoria, B.C. The volcano is
very active just uow. It is situated on
the island of Hawaii, which I have not
yet had the pleasure of visiting. Fearing that I may weary your readers I
wiil say adieu.

Enclosed pluase find a year's subscription for Ibe Staii. I like the way in
which you are exposiug the 'old gang,'
also your articles concerning the treatment of the men (or animals) employed
by thu slave driving avaricious railroad
contractois. We are living under the
British flat*; then, for heaven's sake, let
us have British freedom and fuirplay in
politics and everything else. We seem
to have copied a spurious freedom from
our American neighbors, whose every
act proclaim their belief tbnt might is
right. Ask the farmers and working
meu, British freedom is all we need
here, and to get the pare article we

I iy   lias aome, h ia grown, and has
uecl to high noon.   The air i.s mild-
" -   tself.   Xo wiud hit ;o::ten in stir the
ahrultberies, yet  there have beeu
9l      - al More House  terrible enough to
aim��� -t shake it to iis foundations.
First earns tli; rector. He was dreadfully
angry over Miss (I ubbett's cap. Tiie "wild
wives," he said (though it, too, waa a most
disgraceful episode,) lie could pass over in
sorrowful silence, but au insult to an old
lady���and so on. Terry had dissolved into
tears, She had implored the rector to for-
give Geoffrey. She had spcken to him,
spoken severely, she said, and he had promised her faithfully never to do it again.
"He won't have the opportunity," replied
the rector, grimly, "She had spent her
whole morning cutting off those streamers
behind, and making thorn into big bows in
the fiontof her cap, 1
to her to havo to do i
(MissGabbetl has led hisgentlesoulatriiiy
awful life for tho last forty-five years, but
asyi I ho has nol quite disoovered the fact).
"*>,.������-he was very proud of those streamers," -aid lie.
Eventually Terry Made friends with Iiim
again, and even induced him to say a forgiving word In Geoffrey, who eame sulkily
enough into the room at first, but who, at
the first kind word tho reotorsaid, astounded them all by suddenly Hinging himself
in'.o his arms and obliging to him, sobbing
"Yes.    ind she told mo of her i n-
ment lu yon.''   His face grows vory white.
"Df her engagement to you!"
His breath seems to fail him a littlo, He
looks at Trefusis.
" You think she is in love with you,"
says harry.
"No," replies Trefusis, plainly. " Your
cousin has herself told me that she is not
in love with me." llis voice is clear, calm,
and distinct, yel in spile of his strong effort
il is impossible to keep out the bitterness
that liea in it. "She told me something
else, too," says he, gazing straight at Laurence : " that she loved no one else."
Laurence winces.
"Slit; tohl the truth then, as she surely
conld," aays ho, loyal to his love when he
would most joyfully have lied, and turns on
llis heel nud leaves him.
Trefusis, in uo pleasant frame of mind,
keeps on his way lo More House.    Hearing
ill it is a great grief j that Terry is outside, he goes in search of
,   said he, sighing 1 her, h-3 whole mental bearing towards her
a liltle transversed.
Why hail her oDUsin made that sudden
attack on him, unless���unless ��� ! He
pushes this suspicion from him as unworthy
of her, but still with Ids mind a litlle inflamed against, her. He turns the corner
and goes straight to where .Mrs. Ryan told
him she would be, in hor own litlle garden
where Laurence had left her.
She is standing beside a tiny flower-bed,
with a spade iu her hand digging vigorous
ly.   Her attitude, her evident unconcern
as if ids heart would break.   In direct ratio j her plain disregard for the stories that are
to his hatred for .Miss llabbetl is his love
for her brother. Ha waa a curious mix lure
of good and evil, that boy.
It is now four o'clock. The rector has
gone, Geoffrey has been consoled by Terry
wi.ii loving words and kisses, and comforted with hot sponge-cake straight out of the
oven, and Terry is beginning once more to
breathe freely when  a second avalanche   tired
llying around her, lill Trofusis's almost too
full heart with anger,���a very calm, sell-
contained anger, certainly, very different
from Larry's, but none the less intent for
all that.
She looks up at him as ho draws nearer,
Her faoo is as beautiful as usual, perhaps
even more  beautiful,   but   it   is   flushed,
descends upon her
It i.s Larry this time,���Larry, pale, furious
in a flaming passion,   He stn'dos up to her
across the litlle garden she calls her own,
behind those banks whore the violets grow,
Tired ! Trefusis would havo refused lo
acknowledge Ids anger ofa moment ago,
but here is surely jas! cause for anger. Why
should she be slaving, until her face is red,
her hands spoiled,���ahe, who has promised
aud, catching both her arms, holds her as j to be his wife '!   Surely such an occupation
in a vice. ' is not necessary, is not worthy of  her.   in
" It it true," he demands, in a choking, ; t,|,o world j��� ,������,���,,���, |���. has lived so rich, su

"What a voice!'' says Larry, still
holding her, still glaring at her. "You

to say you are in love with him. Oome'
Are you';"
" I'm not,'' aays Terry.   Furtively (lv:

says he, witli admirable self control, with
undiminished calm, indeed,though inwardly

"I am," says poor Terry, meekly.
" I'shaw !'' says Laurence. "Enough of
this nonsense. Come into the dining-room
and write a line to him al once. Break it

Nonsense, Larry!   When we haven't a  in this gesture.   Tiie baud-beyond doubt

sigh and with much mire candor than tact,
it must be confessed, "you are not at all

point-blank declaration,   " You would 1"'

the house,
Trefusis, unused to this kind of thing,
looka after ber thoughtfully. He doe i nol
uttempl to follow In i-. When she ia out of
Bight h itoops, picks up the spade, sticks
it into tho gr, und, turns methodically to-
war Is the garden gate, and so to tho front
of the house. It is the shortest way back
to the Hall,
As he passe- the balcony, however, n
voice calls to him. Looking up, he sees
Terry bending over.
"1 am so sorry I was bo rude to you,"
aays she, slowly, formally. Her face ia a
little Hushed, her eyes proud, her whole air
it must be confessed, far removed from
penitence of any son. If tlierc is regret in
it, il is certainly of a very haughty kind.
"I beg your pardon."
" Was there anything to bog my pardon
about'.'" asks Trefusis, ungenerously. His
eutiro manner, indeed, is so ungenerous
that any inward promptings lowards
righteous dealing with him that might have
existed in Terry's heart are frozen on the
spot. If he had only accepted her apology,
indifferently though it was offered, some
small bond might have arisen between
them ; but he is still smarting under a sense
ol" injury, and tlie fact that she almost disdainfully refuses to let her eyes rest on bis
has driven him to the verge of discourtesy.
" You arc right, 1 believe llieie was
none," says she, taking her arms off the
balcony and turning away.
"Terry I" says he, quickly, but too lato.
She waves her hand impatiently and goes
into the house.
CHAPTER IX,
The cocks and hens are in a high state of
indignation : what does it all mean, this
Hying backward and forward through the
yard ? To Terry with meal in hor protty
bauds they are quite accustomed, but Terry
playing hido-and-seel from the stable to
liio eoaoh-honse (when, in good times past,
ihe coaches used to be), and from the cow-
stall to the abeds, i.s a thing altogether out
of their line. The pigeons, too, seem greatly upset by the proceedings beneath them,
but they are up so high in iheir litlle homes
over the stables time they can afford to
look down upon the mailer with a.smiling
contempt,
" Tip," shouts Geoffrey, having caught
hold of Terry's skirt, but ineffectually, for
she eludes him aud escape,, though with a
distinct rent in her gown.
It is a day that makes one wonder if
heaven has anything morc beautiful to
show. The lighl is a pale shimmering gold,
the air ia delicious, All over the place the
perfume of the swooping llowers comes to
one : on the top of the old wall dark velvety
wall-flowers arc nodding their homely
heals. Round there in the orchard, just
behind the yard, " the placo is ou lire with
roses."
It is a week later,���a week that has
troubled Trefusis a good deal. Everyday
iie had gone down from the Hall to see
Terry, and every day they had parted on
exactly the same terms aa they parted the
day before. It seemed to him impossible to
gel nearer to the girl, to sec into her heart,
to touch the core oi it. He could hold her
hand ; she had borne that,���endured, he
told himself, with extreme bitterness, was
the word. Twice he had kissed her -, she
had said nothing, but she certainly had not
kissed him.
At night he used to laugh at himself���
there was little gayety in the laugh���and
wonder why on oarlh he didn't make an end
of it all, and break asunder a connection
which redounded to nothing but llis own
discomfiture. Yet when the morning came
and he started to see her once again, and
yet more, when ho did see her, he knew be
should never be the one to sever his life
from hers. And through it all a deadly
jealousy troubled him,���jealousy of her
cousin,���of Larry !
Every day lie saw her at her home, and
often in the evenings ahe dined at the Hall,
l-'anny would have had Ii3r oome overy evening, but Terry sometimes made excuses.
Now and then, too, she lunched with l-'anin
I ul he i ouldn't help knowing, from a word
h, re and there, that it was less often than
hefore lie came on the scene.
After these luncheons he used to walk

below, behind tho hay-staok, up in the lofts,
Mow thoy arc down again, ard are getting
a littlo w, r.   Terry's (ace glancing out
from behind the barrel is growing full of
excitement,  She Hurls hack behind her
standing, can see that she is whispering to
her companion.
Meantime tiie foe is drawing ever nearer,
aud, to add lo the discomfiture of the two
iu hiding, a flock of soft wbile pigeons,
coming swooping back to their homes in
the yard, fresh from Iheir petty larcenies
committed in the cornfield around them,
make straight for Terry. Are they not
sure of tlieir crumbs when she is near?
Thc boys being now in the stable, Terry
has the courage to show herself, to raise her
hands, to try and frighten away her feathered Iriends. In vain ! Lower and lower
they descend, tlicir softsilvcry wings gleaming in the sunlighl.
Trefusis can sec her rise iu desperate
stress, can seo her uplifted anna, can almost
hear her lips cry, " Cush I Cush I" though
she says it in the softest whisper. He can
seo, loo, thai tho pigeons think nothing of
this, are not in tbo least afraid of their
loving mistress. Bodily they descend upon
her, perching on head and anna and dainty
shoulders, cooing loudly the while.
And now the boys are out again. They
see the pigeons. Where the pigeons are,
there surely is Terry. A piercing war-
whoop bursts from them, Terry spriugs to
her feet and stands for a second laughing,
her snowy betrayers slill fluttering round
her ; then she springs forward, Laurence
after licr, the boys in hot pursuit,
They so head her that she makes straight
for llie small gate where stands Justice,���
lhal is, Trefusis. Siie is laughing as she
runs; her face is all alight, full of beautiful,
almost childish excitement,
She lias run almost into Trofusis's arms
���into his presence, rather, for bis arms are
certainly ai this moment not ready to receive her���before she sees him.
Then she stops short. The lovely light
lies from her eyes, the laughter from her
lips,
"'refusis says nothing, For the first lime
in his excellently well regulated life, he
finds himself without words. That change i
in her face ! The dying away of tlie mirth, |
tlie happy laughter ! Ho had been angry
because O'More waa with hor, bill that
hardly counts now. He can think of only
one thing, tha'. when shosawhim her pretty
"ace fell, ber pretty smile died.
A very rage of anger against her surges in
lis heart.
" Oh ! I didn't know," she cries breathing quickly both from surprise and her late
fast run, " that you were coming so early."
" So I perceive," says Trefusis, dryly.
Terry turns round aa if to say something
to Larry or thc boys, but they arc nowhere
to be seen. Larry, scenting trouble in the
air, has considerately carried her brothers
away with him, Thus deserted, Terry once
more looks il Trefusis.
" We were playing hide-and-seek," she
says, nervously.
It ia the nnhappiost thing, but her nervousness only angers him still further. What
has lie done lo her, that she should show
actual distrust of him ? What has there
been in all his dealings with her to cause
her to know fear, however slight, however
transitory'.'
" I am sorry I was unfortunate to interrupt you," he says, calmly, without a trace
in bis voice of the emotion that is stirring
him to his heart's core. Thia is his misfortune. If he bad stormed al her, scolded i
her heartily, ahown himself abominably
jealous, she could have understood him, - |
having been broughl up in an atmosphere
where every one said just what he or sho
thought at the moment, where anger, justly
shown, waa accepted in a right spirit, and a j
storm or two in tlie week considered of littlo
consequence. That Trefusis, though she
knew lie must be angry with her, should
refrain from saying so, makes lum at once
even a greater stranger to her than ho was
before. Larry would have said so much !
and llien she could have explained ; but he,
Mr. Trefusis, he will say nothing, She feels
suffocated, Suddenly a sense of anger,
most honest anger, stirs her breast. She
turns to him a charming face, now all frowning with her thought,

A CHRISTMAS FRAGMENT,
II was the eveof the third Christmas they
had spent together, those two, man and
girl. The first had been a happy one to her.
He was kind enough then, in his rough
way, and she, the girl, loved as a woman
would.
III thc merry-making of the seacoast town
she joined quite gladly. The second was a
time of agonies and the festivities of the
season wero discordant on Iier cars. A
newborn note of pain was dominant.
Thai was a year and a day ago. What
would this coming birthday celebration
bring to the patient woman���patient of
many pains, patient of many hopes unfulfilled? Thai wailing note of tlie year ago
had passed out of her home, yet not from
her heart; it had been stilled the day before. It was his hand, the man's, lhat had
torn the one chord of melody oul of hor
discordant life, lu his anger and his rage
iu liquor ho had cast lhe child from him.
Ita cries of infant pain disturbed him and
ho stilled them forever on the hearthstones.
And on this eve of the holy day she wait-
for his coming from tbe sea, where she
thought be had labored at hia nets. There
was keen pain in her heart. She hated him
for the crime ho had done in Ids drink, but
she prayed that he might come back to her
to be forgiven, so much was she a woman,
Far up upon the. crown of the cliff she
waited. Below the aea beat boldly ou the
sands, broke bravely on the rocks above ;
far out from the mist of lhc nightfall the
cries of tlie wild birds rang in her ears as
lho cry of her own, aa rung but a day
ago.
She waited patiently, her white face
turned to tlie white mist, and when became
he camo unseen by her ; came from the heat,
and angers of the village house. Murder
was still in bis heart, madness in his
brain,
"So it's here ye are, is it? Why did
ye leave ycr place, aye ?" lie held her
bands in one of his strong hands, stained
and stiff wiih the salt of the sea.
" Please Matt, tlio baby���I could na'
stay."
" Aye, and what ails the baby ?"
From his brain his midnight acl had gone;
a keener lust of strength hud place therein.
" Please, dear, yo hurt my hands.
Please, dear !"
" And so, my lady, you're as tender as
ye were a year ago." And the hand tightened on the hands and the girl went to her
knees. The loose hand struck her in the
face ; red replaced tlio white in the thin
cheek.
" Please, .Matt, tbis is Christmas eve."
Only a plea, patient as before. Another
blow and tbe while was gone from all the
faoe,
A single cry mingled with the night
bird's, a cry not of pain of body, for ahe
was bravo as women are, but of heart.
'��� Please, dear, don't; I meant no harm 1"
"Ye did. Ye complained down in the
town. They mocked mo in the 'The Yan-l'
Ihis night, They mocked me for my ways
to thee, and even Rraokor blamed it to my
liquor. He'll drink no sup of his this Christmas I"
"1 never told lliein what ye did, Matt.
Let me go.   Please !"
"Aye, I'll let ye go, and far at that I"
A gusl of wind swept up from lhe sea
and chilled her face, and made it while
again, l'he salt blinded his eyes and the
girl strove, to free herself from tne hand lhat
pressed upon her neck.
" Please, Matt," as the hand tightened
more, "1 did ua' mean to fret VO,  Please."
" 'Please !' aye, 'Please I' '1 hut's all yer
language. Always 'Please !' 'Twas 'Please!'
when I struck y��� (irst! Why di.l yo na'
light. 'Twas 'Please!' when 1 brought ye no
food, 'I'loasel' when yer cursed cryin' baby
died, and now as yo beg all ve can say is
Tloase !'"
He threw her from him, thon put his
knee upon her and held he, fast to the sea-
wet rock, and her white face was turned up
to his burning one ami to tlie gray sky above
In supplication.
"Don't hurt mo so, dear, please don't."
"Curse ye, yer all me trouble, all mc
row, and I'll wind it up just now, I'm
tired of ye, do ye hear? and ye'll never
tell about ycr screeching baby !"
He picked her from the stone in his
strong arms and hold her so hard against
his breast lhal she cried out in her pain ;
"Please Cod, help me I"
Xo one heard, for the sea broke louder in
its lieri'C fight with the strand and the
night birds shrilled louder in iho mist,
"Please, Matt-'' as be lifted her while
(ace far above hia own ; "please not thore,
the sea cries out so loud ! Please I"
"Please it's good enough for you. It's
good enough, that sea, to wash ye trom me.
Please take that, and that, and that I"
Mc lifted the light body fur abovo his
head.
"Here's -i bonny Christmas present for
ye," he shrieked in the crying sea.
The lace ou the cliffs below was turned
up to the gray sky ; it was all white again
save for the red maika on the sharp atones;
Thia was her third Christinas. mn m mmm,
Ai-piopriatenes.i Should be  a  Leading
Characteristic-
Thero arc several considerations that go
to make up the value of a Christmas gift,
entirely independent of the price paid for it.
One of those is tho spirit in which it is
given. A duty present ���one that ia made
simply becauso it is expected, and not because of a real affection or esteem that
flowers out in the shape of a gift���is valueless, no matter how much money it has cost.
Another consideration is the appropriateness. Ynu may love your friends must devotedly, but if you present a smoking-cap
to a man who never smokes, or a teapot to
a woman who abhors thu Chinese herb, or a
spectacle case to the one who never uses
glasses, they will probably one and all unite
in thinking that your good-will is ill excess
of your perceptive qualities,
Still a third consideration adds value to
a gift. Something that is the work of the
donor'a own hands almost always possesses
a value in the eyes of the recipient quite
bey, nd that of a purchased gift. The reflection thatlove and thought had gone into
tlie making of the gift enhances its precious-
nes��.
And the moral of all thia, as the Duchess
in " Alice in Wonderland" would say, is
that it behooves the peoplo who mean to
recognize Christmas by presents to (Irmly
resolve, in the first place, ti, make no gifts
out of regard for appearances or from any
motive except lhat of a desire to cause happiness to some one lhey love or honor ; in
the second place, to bestow enough thought
upon the presents they do give to insure
their commending themselves by thoir ap.
positeness; and last, but not least, to make
with their own hands as many of the gifts
as possible.
COMMON' i-KSsli IN IUJYISO,
Christmas gifts should never bea burden;
but, alas ! they often arc. Many a woman
of hg'it purse looks forward to the holiday
season with positive dread, foreseeing the
expense she ean iii afford to bear.
" I don't recover from the effect of Christmas fur three or four months," laments
ono of these unfortunate?, whose generosity
is sadly out of proportion to her income,
" The only time in tho year when I wish
tl it 1 had fewer friends and relatives is at
i Ihristmas-time," sighs another of thc same
stamp.
[his is all wrong. The blessed peacetime
of the year ought nut lo bring with it
burdens too heavy to be borne. Yet what
is -ne to do who has a large family circle
and many friends ? She noes no*, wish to
lay herself open to the suspicion of stingi��
ni -s, neither does she feel that she can with
justice to herself and others expend upon
the luxury of giving the money she should
reserve for the payment of just debts and
for the purchase of necessaries.
A common answer offered to such a problem is the suggestion tiiat the presents
should be home-made. The woman who is
"lulled with brush or pencil may evolve
alondars, photograph-cases, picture-frames
ami easels, panels, card-trays, and scores of
other pretty and dainty gifts from cardboard, drawing-paper, ink, and paint. The
OM oi materials need not be large.
Far different is the case with the woman
wiio can only wield a needle, no matter how
-krlful she may be in its use. With the
best will in the world, the fabric for a handsome gift caiinol be purchased except at a
rate that pulls hard upon her purse,
IIKI.I'III.Sriii.l-.STIli.VS,
The best plan to pursue, considering all
things, is to buy Christmas gifts early in
the season, and to pick up little trifles that
commend themselves by tlieir beauty and
cheapness. After you examine purchases
yoi will seldom fail lo find that many of
them will just suit friends concerning whose
gifts you have been in uncertainty. A
pretty cup and saucer for this one, a mem-
o.-.v.idum-book for another, a letter-opener
or a court-plaster case for a third, a paperweight or a letter-clip for a fourth.
While large and handsome gifts, like
sofa-cushions, worked foot-rests, table-
covers and the like, cannot be made except
at considerable expense, there are smaller
gifts that cost lesa, The woman who knows
how to do drawn work, hemstitching and
fringing, as well aa embroidery, can work
wonders with a piece of line linen and a
handful of silks. She can produce bureau
ami sideboard covers, toilet-sets, doilies,
neuter-pieces, carving-cloths, tray-cloths,
and a variety of other ,'aiuty trifles. The
chief expense about many of these things is
the stamping���an expense that is removed
in the case of a woman who can draw her
own designs or possesses a " stamping-
outfit."
Put some one may say, " All this is very
nice for the people who are in town, liut
what shall be dono in preparing Christmas
gifts by lliose who live in the country anil
cannot pick up bargains at every corner'.'"
Then send what you can get.
It is a wonder that moro country people
-lo not appreciate how much they can do
with what they huve. Thero are few city
people who would not appreciate the gift
of a box or bag of chestnuts, walnuts,
hickory-nuts, butternuts, hazel-nuts, or
beech-nuts. Still fewer are then who would
not delight in the arrival of a small rustic
fernery, filled wiih lino ferns, mosses, and
tiny evergreens, and brightened by the
scarlet berries of thc Mltoliella, All these
may be dug up in the woods a few weeks
beforo Christinas. Uauolly, too, such dain
ties as a few jars of pickles or preserves or
a few glasses of jolly may bo spared from
tho country store closet, nnd are a boon to
the city housekeeper, Ingenuity and goodwill seldom fail to produce good results
when they arc put vigorously to work.
TO MAKE OIIILDnUN HAPPY,
It seems easy enough on the surface to
select Christmas gifts for children. With
the shops full, as they are at the holiday
season, of everything to delight the most
exacting youngster, there should bc no
dilliculty in making a choice

DINNER PROM - To .'1.
It is not well to have llicChristmns dinner
too early in the day.   On lhat morning the
breakfast is not usually an early meal, and
the entire family have done more or has
munching of fruit, nuts, and candies all the
forenoon.   It is wise to postpone the dinner
hour to 2 or,') o'clock, and thus give everyone an opportunity for a little exercise that i
will bring up tho appetite to the point  re- i
qiiisite to thc full enjoyment of tho meal. I
An evening dinner is hardly to be commended on account of the little folk, who on this
day, at least, should bc permitted to dine
wiih their elders.
Make of your Christmas dinner a rather
stately affair.   Serve it in courses and let

SATURDAY, DEC. 2!!. 1893
Lieht.-Governor Dkwbsky has
issued the usual proclamation oou-
veuiug the Legislative Assembly on
the 18th of January. A redistribution bill is promised, and if the Government desire to retain the confidence of tbe electorate of West Koote-
nay they will have to give this important* district au additional repre-
Beutntive in tho next Legislative Assembly. Siuce the election of 18W
this district bus become the most
prominent portion of the provinoe,
and its advancement in population
and miuiug development bus, indeed,
been phenpmennl, Thousands of
mining cluims have been located and
recorded, many nnd rich mining camps
have sprung into existence all over
the distriot, mere prospects have developed iuto mines of great, value, and
olaims have sold for high figures, the
sales of miuing property during the
past' throe years aggregating between
four uud five million dollars j rich
ores are constantly going out to the
various smelters, returning large
profits; railways have been nud are
being constructed to give rapid nnd
cheap transportation for our ores
which when completed will stimulate
the output from hundreds of claims
yet partially developed, uud the ore
shipments from West Kooteuay will
soou amount to millions of dollars
annually. It is probably within tho
mark to say that over 100 ranchers
nre engaged in clearing farms in this
district, and the total population
must be between four and six
thousand. The Blue Books issued
nnnually by the Government are a
sure index of the prosperity and advancement of a dislrict, nnd a comparison of tbe revenue returns for tho
year ending Juno 30th, 1892, shows
that West Kootenay returned more
revenue than the three districts of
Lillooet, Cassiar and Cariboo combined, which districts are represented
in the House by six members; and
more revenue than the combined districts of East Kootenay, Cariboo and
Lillooet, with six representatives. A
comparison of West Kootenay's revenue witb the Island constituencies is
quite as marked. Going buck to tbo
year eudiug 30th June, 1891, we find
West Kooteuuy returning u larger
revenue than four Island constituencies with five representatives, mid
���very nearly as much ns East
Kooteuay, Cariboo and Cassiar combined, with five representatives m
the Legislature. It is moro than
probable tbat within two years Vi est
Kootenav will be tbe wealthiest and
most populous district in the province, uud my redistribution of seats
that does not give West Kooteuay au
������additional representative will uot be
acceptable to the electorate.
