It Is woll then, as the SSthof December approaches, to say with Kipling:

lose sight altogether of the guest, of

PROGRESSIVE  REVELSTOKE
As Boon as the crowd had assembled in the     new brick   power house,
where sombre and gaunt in its business like  color  of  dark  grey the fine
new machinery  lay ready to operate
atthc slightest touch.
Mr.  Cowan expressed  pleasure      at
seeing such a large crowd ol cieizens
and was  particularly  glail  that      so
much    interest     in    this,  the city's
greatest asset, was evinced.    He was
pleased that tbe honor of opening thc
new plant had  fallen to the lot of a
lady,  and  instanced  how  vast forces
would yield to the light to'ich of    a
woman.     Reference was made to the
great power  that could    Im obtained
for  Industrial  purposes and how  important a step Revelstoke had  taken
in her power development. Mr. Cowan
dwelt brieily on the past history   of
the city's electrical development how
the income had rapidly increased.
To  Revelstoke  can  be  given       the
honor of having installed     the    first
hydro-electric plant in B. C.
The  fact  of   Mrs.  Hamilton,       the
Mayoress,     performing t he   opening
ceremony  was all  the more interesting as it was  by her childish hands
that she opened  the old plant years
ago. Since then the city has pros-1
pored. Mr. Cowan pointed out that ed in hiding severgl millionse antl
the new work hud cost tbe city much government detectives are endeavor-
but this would never be regretted as ing to trace tbe stolen money ami
the new unit of a 'Juo h. p. turbine securities,
and a 150 K.V.A. generator was a
splendid addition. Another unit
was to come yet, for if the city was
to sell power fur manufactures, etc.
an equal alternate plant was necessary. The new power house, the

TRIBUTE TO MR. COWAN.
Mayor Hamilton, in a few words
paid a high tribute of praise to Mr.
Cowan for his hard antl conscientious work in connection with tho new
plant. This plant was good for all
time, and the growth ol the city demanded an increased unit. It was
more than probable that thc city
would Bell power to tha CP.R.which
would bc a great help. The outlay
for the plant was a good investment
for Revelstoke, and a nuinument to
Mr. Cowan's energy. The whole
council did their best in the matter
and he was sure that the people
wouldnever regret spending their
money in this work,
R. Gordon referred to his own connection with the city power houso
an.l testified to the line qualities of
Sir. Cowan as an employer, He felt
sure thnt Revelstoke bad mado a
splendid commencement ol a new eta
of electrical development, dilating on
the fact that near Revelstoke wero
many big streams .'.In 10 nlmo-it unlimited power could bo utilized w» tier or later. He pointed out t^at

What it Costs
A railway expert states that it
costs 42 cents to stop a train of
532 tons from a speed of 50 miles
an hour, nnd another that it costs
U to stop a »K10 ton train. Tho
time losi in stopping a train on an
easy, straight track is 2J minutes.
When n passenger nt Cowan Hiding

to the Country town, ho overlooks
thc fnct that the delay costs thc
compnny money nnd scores of passengers valuable time.

Bandits Hiding at Crow's Nest
Moyle,  11.  C, Dec. 20— There     is
every reason for believing that Han

11. train at Ducks, near Kamloops, a
year or more ago,  is now in hiding
somewhere along the    Crow's      Nest
roa.l.      A short  time ago Haney anil
, his  gang    were     located  nenr  Lund
; brcck  by the     mounted police.        A
i strong effort was     made to   capture
ihem,   but  they  made  their  getaway,
and came to Dritish Columbia.
Shortly after tbe holdup at Ducks,
Constable Ike Decker attempted to
arrest Haney and another man, hut
was killc.l by Haney. There is now a
r.'Itnr.i of $0003 for the capture of
Haney. A man answering Hnney's
description has been seen around
Vahk anl Ourzon lately, in fact it
is believed lie was in Moyie only a
short time ago. Constable Browning of Moyie has been on his trail

strangers in camp nnil pay no attention to folks around home. We send
our hest products abroad niul keep
the culls for thc local market. Okun-
ngan hotels serve Inferior fruit. Al-
liertan hotels put up tough beefsteaks
Manitoban hostelries provide bread
that competes with lend, while nt the
coaBt fish is often served by the

Demand Free Trade
Ottawa. Dec. 20.—The [armors' dele
gation at its meeting this week, adopted memorials and resolutions
Which they will present to tho government tomorrow. The tarifl resolu-
:ijn  calls  for:
(1) Reciprocal free trade between
tie United States and Canada in nil
horticultural, agricultural and animal products.
Ul Reciprocal free trade between
the two rountries in ail agricultural
implements, machinery, vehicles and
parts  thereof
(il For an immediate lowering of
the duties on all Dritish Imports to
i n s half the rates charged under tho
general tarifl, whatever these may
general tarifl. whatever these may
le. That any trade advantages giv-
Irn the United States in reciprocal
rade relations he extended to Great
Britain.
1*11 For such further reduction of
the r?maining preferential tariff as
will ensure the establishment of com
plete free trade between the Dominion and the Mother Country within
ten  years.
l5) That the farmers of this country are willing to face direct taxation in such form ns may be advisable to make up the revenue lost
under  ihe  new  tariff relations.
Practical Street Paving
We have received a recommendation
from Charles E. Shaw, of the Oity
Hall, Westminster, London, England,
in connection with the report on tlu
latest system of road paving. Mr.
Shaw was, for some time, city clerk
of Revelstoke. In the following he recommends the process as most suitable for Revelstoke, where wootl pav
Ing is expensive. This method has
been adopted with success in many
parts of  England:
The old macadam was sacrificed
and the contour of the road reformc'
an.l  thoroughly consolidated. On
this was laid the tar macadam whicli
was composed of hard limestone mix
ed with tar composition, the botton
layer being composed of materials
which would pass through a ring 2}
in. diameter, and the top layer
through a ring IJ in. diameter. Each
layer was laid with a light steam
roller, the top surface being flushed
up with fine tarred limestone. When
this was set and dry, the surface wai
tarred and covered with fine crushed
limestone, the finished thickness of
the tar macadam being -1 inches. The
total cost of this work came to£3S5,
which, over an area of 2,100 yards
super, represonts 3s. Sd. per yard
super. This was maintained free for
a peliod of twelve months, and is
being further maintained for two
years at thc rate of ljd. per yard
per annumf
New Bank Law
Ottawa, Dec. 20—Sir Wilfrid Laurier introduced in thc House the
bank bill, which comes into operation July 1. There are, as the
Premier set forth, one or two changes
of a radical character. The first is a
provision for an audit by shareholders.
Another feature of Importance is
that annual statements must be sign
ed not only by the president, but also by all three directors.
Tho bill also enables older banks,
whose shares were fixed at tan, to
change them to shares of $100 by
resolution  of  the shareholders.
Another new provision ol the bill
is that "product of the forest"
Which mny be ordered ns security to
hnnkn nro to Include saw logs nnd
railway ties as "timber" and deals,
boards, etc., as "'lumber." This
definition was rendered necessary by
iweni decisiou of tho courts.
Wireless Train Service
The latest invention for the safety
of a train and its passengers, Is nn
apparatus whereby a train can lie
stopped in case of emergency by wire
less telegraphy, which is operated
from the various stations along the
track.
Apart from the Value ol such a
control in the point of preventing col
lisions, expert railway men estimate '
that the value of the invention will I
be tremendous in the matter ol short
ening the time of freight trains between divisional points. Tbc facility
with which trains may be allowed to
follow each other out of stations
tiinuiii'ii,Is Itself to them. ThiB, of
course, will require still further work
ing out, but those behind the scheme
have already demonstrated to the
satisfaction ol nil who have hnd the
privilege ol watching the system in
operation that trains enn lie successfully stopped without the human ag-
.'iit-y entering Into tbe transaction',
nl among those who have been so
convinced, it is snid, are the engineers nf the Board ol Uailway l',,minis
sion, who went over the Installation
unofficially two weeks ago.
Practical experiments are uow be-
Ing made by the C.P.R. between
North Pnrkdale nnd West Toronto.
Locomotive Whims
It is a remarkable truth and might
lie profitable in helping us to make
fair allowance fur the difference between the temperaments of different
men—thgt every locomotive engine
running on a railway has a distinct
ndividuality and character of its
own.
It is perfectly well known to ex-
lerit-nced, practical engineers that if
a dozen different locomotive engines
were mnae at the same time, of the
ame oower, for thc same purpose,of
.ihe materials, in the same factory,
.inch of those locomotive engines
would come out with its own pecul-
ar whims and ways, only ascertain-
.1   by  experience.
One engine will take a great meal
.if conl and water at once; another
will not hear of such a thine, but
fill insist on being coaxed by spade*
uls and bucketfuls. One is disposed to start off, when required, av
lie top of his speed; another must
have a little time to warm to his
work, and  to  get well into it.
These peculiarities are so accurately mastered by skilful drivers that
nly particular men can persuade
particular engines to do their best.
It would seem as if some of these
'excellent monsters" declared, on
,ieing brought out of the shed, "If
.t's Smith who is to drive me, I
won't go. If it's my friend Stokee,
I     am     agreeable to     anything  ! "
All locomotive engines are low-
ipirited in damp and foggy weather.
They have a great satisfaction ia
.heir work when the air is crisp and
rosty. At such a time they are
.ery cheerful and hrisk; but they
itrongly object to haze and Scotch
nil ts. These are points of charact-
r on which they are all united. It
s in their peculiarities and varietiee
if character that they are most remarkable.

local Option Defeated
Chilliwack nn.l Prince  Rupert     on
Wednesday voted down tbe local optica bylaw, which was under the Dominion government act submitted to
the electorate in Uritish Columbia
for the tirst time.
At Prince Rupert local option was
defeated by 272* to 1-89.
At Chilliwack local option w, nt
.l*,wn before a vote ol 13'2 to 107.
The total vote wns 246,seven ballots
being spoilt.
The Canada Temperance Act is distinct from the Scott Act, with which
it is often confused. The Canada Tern
perance Act merely regulates the retail sale of liquor in licensed saloons
and hotels and do.'s not control the
sale of intoxicants by wholesale deal
rs  or in  licensed clubs.
To secure a poll under this measure it is necessary that a petition,
signed by at least twenty-five per
cent, of tbe voters upi n the lists
ai the city or district Interested be
forwarded to the Dominion' government, which then issues orders that
the poll be taken. A straight ma
iority is all that Is required for the
ilnidii'ii or rejection ol tho megsure
If the poll is favorable tn the act
n'n^ty days are given to tho liquor
interests affected in which to dispose
if their wares and close up shop
Should the result of the poll be un
favorable a poll cannot be taken for
hree years.
The success of the vote wns regard-
id as deciding the question whether
a poll on the subject shall he taken
n   Vancouver  in  th1  near  future.
No Export ot Eggs
Montreal, Dec. 20.—The hen is ad-
nittetl to be one of the greatest financial factors In the country today,
and she is also one of the most over
worked. Notwithstanding the fact
that the whole of the breed are work
ing overtime, as it were, they are
unable to meet more than the de-
-nntids of the Dominion, whose consumption is calculated at thirty doz-
n eggs per head per annum.
With the lmme demand thus developed to the extent of the supply egg
exports this year have fallen to zero.
The shipping company which carried
practically the whole of the export
egg trade in their ship's holds has
not conveyed a single case thisyear
from Montreal. Bight years ago
Canada exported twelve million dozens of egu-s during the tiscul year,
representing a value of $1,733,242. In
I90U the egg exports had fallen to
3-62,850 down, worth $124,816. This
year the exports amount to practically nothing in eggs good, bad, or
indifferent.

receiving much benefit from the ex-
erciso, nil men who can como to the
gymnasium Monday and Thursday
mornings from 10 to 11:30 will bo
cordially welcomed. Do not be
afraid thut you will bo conspicuous
berause yuii cannot do a lot of

to help you keep your blood in good

This applies also to glrlB and

Tlie world lias a certain admiration
for the "booster," oven if his enthusiasm carries him beyond the lines
of exact veracity. Thc "knocker"
has been defined as "a thing which
hangs on the outside at a door,"
and when it comes to bis obsequies
lew are to be found to do him reverence.

Christmas Cheer
Each successive year more and more people who
try to bring all the happiness they can to the

the "Tree" still twinkles and glistens before
our mind's eye. Why then not try and pass
along to the children some of the joys which we
bave tasted and found so wholesome. Homes
arc made happy by the gladness of children. Let

new year comes eagerly, a smile on its lips to greet you, tiny hands

UCH snow had been piled in a drift upon the window
sill, and thc wind v.ns blowing madly through the
deserted streets. Lowric looked out and the helm;;
nl loneliness which had possessed him all day was
intensified.
"Christmas," he said half aloud, "and here 1 am
without a lm nd to wish me well; with nobody to care
whether 1 am nn rrv or sad and with no one to whom
message; heard her as she picked ii  up, ami experienced a curious
feeling as he realized that they were separated only by an inch or i wo
n|   Win ill.
"What curious beings we are," he thought, "and how we shut
ourselves out from one another, We sit in loneliness and despair
when beyond thc thin walls against whieh we lean there may bc
i'thers whn, ii they knew of our troubles or were aware of our existence,
might have it in their power to lend us happiness or rescue us from
misfortune, li is all because of the foolish conventionality by which
wc are enslaved, 1 hope she may at least wear her hair in a becoming
fashion. Almost any woman can be attractive if she knows how to
wear her hair."
lie heard the lady go away from the door and cross thc room
I mav even olTer a'friendly greeting. I suppose the again' a,ld' fancying her sitting at her table and dipping her pen in
bov in thc elevator or thc porter would be glad the ink well, he went to the window. The lights were glowing in the

it worth while, bul *   " people with upturned collars and bowed heads were hurrying along
Me sttddenlv ceased to think of his loneliness and     far below.    As he stood looking oul it occurred to him thai a warm
stood in a listening attitude.    In tlie adjoining room     ''"""' in a big llolcl  was ""• a had place in whieh  lo he. even at
Christmas time nml lar from home.    The answer he expected was
waiting fnr him when he turned from the window.    This is what the
a woman  was singing.    Tin- notes  Acre faint, Inn
sweet ami clear; yet there was a pathos in them that
strongly appealed to him.    lh* inclined his head tn    lady had written: _
hear thc wiirds
"Lead Kindly Light, amid thc encircling gloom,
I.i ad Thou me nn ;
The nigl i is i ark and I am far from home-
Lead Thou me on."
The singer .pan   d and Li wrie stood looking out at the whirling
sii.''-*'.  which was fallii .: so thickly that the light ol day was almost
out,    The   afternoon   was  well  advanced.    Sooi    Ihe  electric

Thank you for your kind greeting. 1 hope 1 shall not Le considered ten Lnlil il I suggest lhat you propose some way in whieh we
ian determine whether we shall care alter we have seen eaeh other tu
have a Christmas festival of our own. Ii would Le awkward if we
were tu decide to have a festival ami then you were tu liml, un seeing
me. thai you did nm care to go on with it, or ii I were lo have a similar
feeling alter seeing you. We ought lu decide upon some plan which
will leave each ni us free to advance or retreat without making it
embarrasing for the other. You seem tu Le resourceful. I leave ii
tii you tu suggest a mode of procedure. "Constance Matlock."
It had not previously occurred lo I.n wrie that thc lady might after
seeing him Le inclined to wish tn continue tn treat him as a stranger
and lie was .iisj...setl at lirst tu Le a little resentful because she had
hinted ai such a possibility, ll was Christmas time, however, and he
generously forgave her. After having done that he began working oul
a plan in ai cordancc with her suggestion. In a few minutes he had n
formulated, li all came to him as if he had been mysteriously iu
spire.1. ami he made haste tu write it uut, thus:
"My   Dear  Miss  (or  Mrs.    Hallock:    ln a little  while the lew
unfortunate people whn are stranded here will begin assembling in the
dining room  to partake of such Christmas cheer as may Le  1.*
then      I   pi   pose  thai   we join  them.    If you  will  take a  seat  al
nm- ui tlu- small taLles at the east side of thc room, 1 will wai i'h for you
u enter.     In . asc 1 desire, after seeing you, tu complete the arrangement which has been suggested, 1 will enter shortly after you.    I
w ili pretend tu 1 ave ft irgotlcn something, ami. just after getting inside
ll '  room, turn to go out.    Before leaving thc  room, however, I will
ai   ■ over al you and pause for an instant,    If you bow to mc I will
.v tl al lhc Christmas festival is to proceed, and after I have gone
l for a 1    nn in  ! will return, greet you as if you were my dearest
:• end and si 1 down beside you.    In case you do not bow in me when 1
ling out 1 will imt return.    Or if when I have seen you,
I'ii*: ■   go on with the programme I will not enter the dining
■   at till.    Thus we shall built escape any embarrassment.    11 this
         ur approval I will go downstairs in fifteen minutes,
■  I taki i from which it will bc possible for mc to see you as
head waiter to give you a seat at the east side of the

Eraser was but a liny, crooked thread of silver. Then the
valleys disappeared and we were alone with thc slurs ami
ilm snow white peaks and the grinding avalanches,
Friday, August thirteenth, dawned clear and cold, and
by the time thc sun rose wc were on our way lo the peak:
The many dill's we had to climb were only from ten lo a
hundred teet high, but those hard, smooth, icy slopes
between were tipped al an angle o( from fifty to seventy
degrees. One slip on iln- pari ol eil her of us meant a fearful
slide in death thousands o( feel below.
The storm clouds nl sleet swept down and engulfed us
while we were at little more than eleven thousand feet
altitude. Wc had not enough provisions for anothei' two-
day climb. This was our last possible chance and wc despaired of ever reaching thc peak. Hut h irtunatcly, though
tin* clouds were very dense and cold, bul little snow fell.
Thc storm was a blessing in a way, for though it spoiled our
chance of gelling pictures, it shut oul of view those fearful
sheer sii ipes below.
Iii live hours of steady work we reached the peak.
The clouds broke open for one brief minute, revealing to
us :t wonder world, with the Prascr more than 11,lllll) feet
beneath us: limn the storm swept in worse than ever.
ll took us seven hours to reach our "highest up"
camp, sn dangerous had the softened slopes become on account of the storm, and by the time we reached our camp in
the valley the climb had enst us twenty hours ol hard
work but wc had finally captured Mount Robson for our
country and the Alpine Club of Canada.
< hir provisions were gone, and
we were hundreds of miles from
anything like civilization, We
made the Irip back ..11 whal mountain v.. iphers and small birds we
could pick up, ami the only reason
uhy wc didn't cal hicusts v.as thai
they wouldn't sit still long enough
in be caught. Finally 1 reached
Edmonton on September sixth,
only i" hud lhal Cook and Pi ary
wire monopolizing thc inleresl of
the world, and leaving no room for
such small fry as Mounl Robson
and ine.

A Season ot the Living and the
Living Dead
Tomorrow is Christmas Day, the
great festival looked forward to by
young an I old. Years puss by rap
idly to bc sine and it seems but ycs-
i.-i-.lay Bince the Christmas of 1909
was being celebrated with gifts nn.l
cards, since friends were wishing each
other all the g 1 things ol the season ami youngsters were dreaming of
.Santa Clans Hiul his treasures, Bince
tin- nhl, old story nl Bethlehem was
being told in every church, since the
family gathering hailed Christmas as
the brightest day of all the year.
What memories are awakened by
tne word. How men's thoughts wan
der back over nearly 20\l0 years and
see once gain the crib where was
cradled in lowliness that wonderous
tiie who has hern fur nil these intervening centuries such a power among
the sons nf men. moulding their
thoughts, refininK their feelings, elevating their ambitions, stimulating
in every way their varied energies,
an.l awakening ns well ns retaining
among their countless myrnhls a
love which many waters could never
.pieneh, which fur multitudes hns
turned prisons into vestibules of
heaven, made tortures welcome ami
death itself, evell in its most repulsive form, an obedient servant. and
valued  friend.   This  is   the    greatest
■ .' all festivals. It stands solitary yet
honored and revered by all, by the
ruler the statesman and the peasant,
but myraids who think little or no!
at all about what Christmas tells of
Bethlehem's wonders er of tin- inlin
:te variety of circumstances and feelings in which men have given thanks
to Heaven fur the angel's message,
will yet tin,! Christmas Day one of
the most notable days of this yenr.
Memory will he busy, ns they repeat
"Christmas has eome back." The
shadows of former Christmases will
use from the buried past. The then
nn 1 now will stand side by side. The
voices of long ago will bebeard, faces
that have long been dust will again
put u:i beauty ami affection. In
ninny cases there will be felt some-
thing "like the touch of a vanished
band." The old, old days will reappear. Who shall say how many
hard and hard experienced men and
Women   ■•',   the   world   will     expi   I
at such a season more than one
touch ,.' strangely unwonted tenderness ' II, w many steel cold eyes
will havo at least the wonderous :*,e
tism ol tears. In any case multitudes by the Christmas memories ol
Christ's history and their own have
found themselves strengthened ami

Keeping Christmas
It is a good thing lo observe
( hristmns Day. The mere marking
of times and seasons, when men
nitree (o stop work and make merry
together, is a wise ami wholocomo
riislotu. It helps one to feel the
supremacy of the common life over
the Individual life. It reminds , n
man to set his own little watch, now
and then, by the ureal, clock of
humanity  whieh  runs on sun time.
Hut there is n better thing than
the observance of Christmas Day,
and that is. keeping Christmas.
Are you willing to forget what
you have done for other people, ami
to remember what other people have
done (or you; to ignore what the
world owes yon, and to think what,
you owe the world; to put yonr
rights in the background, and your
duties in the middle distance, aiid
your chances to do n little more
thnn .vour duty in the foreground;
lo see that your fellow men nro just
as real as you are, and try to look
behind their faces to their hearts,
hungry (or joy; to own that probably the only good reason (or your
existence is not what you are going
to get, out o( li(c, but whatyou aro
going to give life; to close your
book of complaints against thc man
agement of the universe, and look
around you for a place where you
ran sow a lew seeds of happiness—
are you willing to do these things
even (or a day? Then you can keep
Christmas.
Are you willing to stoop down and
consider the needs ami the desires 0[
little children; to remember the
weakness and loneliness of people
who are growing old; to stop asking
how much your friends love you,
nn.l ask yourself whether yon love
them enough; to bear in mind tho
things that other people have to
bear on their hearts; to trim your
lamp so thnt it will give more light
and less smoke, nml to carry it in
front so that your shadow will (all
behind you; to mnke a grave for
your ugly thoughts, and a garden
for your kindly feelings, with the
gnte open—are you willing to do
these things even (or one day! Thcu
you can keep Christmas.
Are you willing to bellsvo that
love is the strongest thing in tho
world—stronger than hate, stronger
than evil, stronger thnn death —
and that the blessed life which began
in Bethlehem nineteen hundred
years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love? Then
you enn keep Christmas.
-HKNHY VAN DYKE.
THE NEW YEAR.
Who comes dancing over lhe snow,
Ilis little soft feet all     hare     ond
rosy?
Open the door, though the wild windB
blow,
Tnko the child  in mid  make     him
cozy-
Take him iu antl hold him dear.
He is the wonderful  New Year.
Open your heart,  Ik'  it sn.l  or gay,
Welcome him there     nnd use      Ilim
kindly,
For you must carry  him,  yen or nay
Carry   him with shut eyes  ku blindly
Whether he  hi ingeth  joy or (ear,
Take   him;  (iod  sends      him,      this
good   New   Year.
CHIUSTMAH      UOX    FROM   HOME.
When the sidewalk's lined with cedar
and   the  holly  berries  gleam,
And the merry Christmas shoppers
seem to form an endless stream,
Ami the small boy's in his glory with
hii nose pressed  to the pane
of the dazzling toy window where old
Santa Class doth  reign,
Then It's Christmas—yes, it's Christ
mas—and you feel  it in the air,
And you seo it in the faces down
along thc shopping square;
And the mistletoe and cedar lead you
far and far uway,
And remind you of a caller Hint is
due on Christmas Day—
A caller that will reach you no matter where you roam,
That's your good old auiiusl visitor
