The man was found by a party ot
prospectors  nnd  the  hody  was  lying

artificial means.
Several scientists who have seen
the mummy put its age down as be-

there is a mummy similar to this
which was found in a shallow grave
near the river Nile.     The hody   was

The mummy has attracted much

time, it is expedient, that the attention of our local school trustees
should he drawn to a likely con
tingency arising in Itevelstoke aud
the necessity of having an automatic
tire alarm connected direct with both
lire halls in the city, so that in
case of a dangerous overheating of
furnace pipes, etc., the abnormal
rise in temperature will cause the
alarm to operate on thc thermostat
principle nnd ring in an alarm to
No. 1 and 2 lire stations. A tire
frequently smoulders for some tun.'
before it breaks out into open blaze
nnd when this takes place the blaze
spreads so rapidly that the Inmates
of the building have little or no
time to save themselves. With an
automatic thermostat alarm
least rise of temperature round I
wood work will ring an alarm of
fire at once and much valuable time
wili be saved.

Window Frosting Troubles
Oreat Inconvenience is caused during the winter months to merchants
nud storekeepers by the 'frosting of
show windows. The accumulation on
lhe inner surface of your display win
ib.ws is due primarily to the uneven-
ne-'S of Ihe temperature on the two
sides of your display plate—your win
dow glass. When, for any reason Ihe
atmosphere on the inner side is rais
.1 a cerlain number of degrees above
ihe frigid temperature of the outside air, then the molBture of the
warmer air, coming in contact with
lhe chilled glass, will congeal ill the
fi>i-m of frost. Krom this it cun be
seen bow Important it is that the
air on both sides of the glass should
be kept at, ns even a temperature as
possible, at. least within the range
of Immunity from the frosting evil.

Denver, Colo., Nov. 22.—With ono
wing till of hiB machine crumpled
like a piece of paper, Ralph Johnstone, tbe brilliant young aviator,
bolder of the world's altitude record,
fell from a height of 51)0 feet into the
enclosure at Overland I'ark. aviation
Held last week and was iustantly
killed.
When tho spectators ln tho enclosure reached him his body lay beneath tbc engine ol the biplane with
the white planes that had failod him
iu his time of need wrapped about it
like a shroud. Nearly overy bono in
his body was  broken.
Scarcely bad be bit tho ground
when sensation-mad men and women
swarmed over the wreckage, lighting
with one another for souvenirs of
the terrible accident.
One of the wooden stays had
thrust its jaggod end almost through
Johnstone's body. Before doctors or
police could reach the scene one man
had torn this splinterlrom tho crushed and mangled body and ran gleefully away, carrying his horrid trophy with the aviator's blood still
dripping from its end. Frantic, the
crowd tore away the canvas from
over his body and fought lor the
very gloves that protected Mr. John
stone's bands from cold.
Thc machine fell on the east eldo
of thc Held from the grandstand and
there were but a fow hundred near
the spot, but physicians and polico
were sent across as soon as possible.
Physicians declare death must havo
bceo instantaneous, as Mr. Johnstone's back, neck and both legs
were broken, the hones of his thighs
being forced through thc tlesh and
tbe leather  garments he wore.
Pagan Rome with itB gladiatorial
contests, and bloody scenes never
produced anything more horrible
than thc incident at Denver last
week, whM men and women fought
around the crushed and mangled body
of Ral] h Johnstone, the aviator.
Man is said to be a little lower
than the angels; yes, and often lower than the beasts.

Fifty Years the Standard
British Politics
London, Nov. 18'.—Intcrest in the
political crisis shifted to tho houso
ol lords yesterday. Their lordships
met in the afternoon at the usual
hour and immediately the lord chancellor had taken his seat on the
woolsack and the customary formalities had been complied with. Lord
Lansdowne, leader ol the opposition
(which Is in tho majority ln the
upper house), moved that thc govern
ment produce the veto bill for consideration. His lordship said that
the upper house was ready with its
contribution towardB a solution of
the question at issue. Hia party con
tinued Lord Lansdowne, was committed to the view that in a reformed house of lords there should be a
reduction of membership, abolition
ol the hereditary principle, an ade.
quate representation of the best elements ol the existing house reinforced from the outside either by namin
ation or Borne kind of an election.
They also were ready, he said, to
devise some means of settling the
differences between the two houses.
Thc government, he declared, had no
rlblit to assume that because the
eight -front bench members failed to
reach an agreement parliament
could not settle these problems.
King George made an unexpected
visit to London today and summoned the privy council to meet et
once, presumably for the purpose of
regarding his course in the matter of
obtaining the advice of councillors
giving Mr. Asquith guarantees to
increase the number of peers sufficiently to support the government in
Its policy of reforming the house of
lords. This summons brought to
gether tho leaders of both parties.
B. C. Fruit Scores
Victoria, Nov. 25.- That British
Columbia's fruit now on exhibition
nt thc old country shows Is destined
to sweep this year's honors is intimated in a cablegram summarizing
lirst results, which has been received
hy Hon. vi. J. Bowser, as minister
of agriculture.
At its despatch, nine ol tho twenty
four old country exhibitions were
matters of the past, and ot these
nine British Columbia succeeded in
winning seven gold and two silver-
gilt medals, the highest aggregate
that any district or colony has fit
achieved ln a similar number ol
shows. The gold medals were won
at Southampton, Bath, Bristol, Braid
ford, Leeds, Chester and Bolton and
the silver-pit at tha Crystal Palace
and at Birmingham. It ia anticipated that the provlnolal exhibit will
acore equally Hell at tbe fifteen remaining exhibitions.
CP.R. Use NaturalGas
Medicine Hat, Nov. 25.—The C.P.R
will ship natural gas from this point
to Calgary for the Illumination of
passenger coaches on tbe main line,
beginning today.
Two transport cars, built specially
for this purpose in Germany arrivid
In Medicine Hat today and will make
their initial trip with a cargo ol
Medicine Hat natural gas tomorrow
Tho ears are of the flat type equipped with stationary frames into
which nre fitted horizontal steel cylinders or flasks 15 feet long hy 8
Inches tn width, which are capable
of sustaining a pressure of 170* lba.
to the square Inch, or 180 atmospheres. Each car carried 36 flasks,
and if the experiment proves satisfactory the gas will bc intraduoed
into all tho C.P.R. cars in the weBt
•for illuminnting purposes, and will
supercede the Pinsch gms system. It
has been used with satisfactory results for the past year on trains run
ning out of Medicine Hat, but with
the stornge problem solved other
divisions besides thc local one will
bc furnished with the same illumln-
nnt, which gives a superior light to
coal oil or manufactured gasen, and
carries with it tbe advantage of tn
reality  costing nothing.
Timber Men Anxious
Victoria, Nov. 25.—Anxiety among
coast and mountain timbermen said
to be interested la timber leases situated within the Dominion railway
>*, belt on tbe mainland 1b reported aa
a consequence ol action on tbc part
of the federal government looking to
wards a cancellation o! certain leases
It is reported among timber men in
Victoria that the federal government
has of late years been Increasing the
annual rental fees on a number ot
leases in the railway belt and that
recently several notices of cancellation have been served. So serious
is the situation reported to be, from
tbe point of view of those aflected,
that it is declared coast and interior
men interested In railway belt timber are making arrangements to die-
patch a representative to Ottawa to
lay their case before the government
An extension of time for the removal of timber from leased landa will
it ie stated, be sought.
Years ago when tbe timber lands
in the railway belt were leased, it
wns, so it is reported, the understanding that the timber was to ba
removed within a few years. It la
stated that in some cases logging
has not been carried on and the agricultural interests are laid to have
petitioned the government to throw
tbe lands open to entry for (arming
purposes.
