Select Beef
Broiled- Have your butcher either split the tenderloin lengthwize or cut
crosswise and flatten; put
on a wire broiler and cook
over a clear fire; when
done season with butter,
salt and pepper and serve
Mince any left over either
meat or fish: put in bottom of baking dish; cover
with a layer of sliced
onions, slice over that a
layer of either raw or
cooketl potatoes. Season
with butter, pepper & salt
pour over all enough milk
to keep moist. Rake in a
quick oven
In selecting beef see that
the grain is smooth and
open.     If the fibre parts
break  readily  on   being
pressed  by the finger it
will be found to be tender,
the color should be a deep
rose and   the  fat  a rich
cream color.   If the fat is
white it is an   indication
that the beef is young and
lacking in flavor, and if a
deep yellow the meat will
apt to be tough  and  of
an inferior quality.     The
choicest cuts for roasting
are the sixth, seventh and
eighth ribs, the sirloin and
porter house cuts, as they
are apt to be broken antl
stringy.   Sirloin and short
cut porter house steaks are
best, although the pinbone
steak is considered best by
some.     Beef    tenderloin
cut across the grain makes
most delicious steak.

Last Meeting of 1909 Council held
on Wednesday Afternoon
City Council.
Tho In ' Bosaiou    pi   tlio IBu'.i    oity
tooncil was held on Wednesday     afternoon with Mayor Lindmark    uud Aldermen Sawyer, Wells, Stone
ini and .Macdonald present.
A  letter was read from thill',     iiall,    paatoi    of  the Mottiodist
church,  asking lor rebate on     ohurch
property  tuxes.
Kev. C. A. I'rociinier was present
and pr»sent«d thi matter.
Tue llayor slated that in former years church property had been
entirely exempt; then later on it was
uusosBod. the city council allowing 10M
feet free from tuxation. According to
tho Municipal Clauses Act tho council
now has no option but to tax. Tho
council felt that the churches should
bo assisted just as much as the V. M.
C. A., whose taxes were returned to
them last year as a donation.
Rev. Mr, Procunier suggested that
the same system thut had been practiced us regards the Y. M. C. A. should
regulate the churches, that ol refund •
ing  the taxes.
A resolution    was     passed lhal the
churches pay the full  umount  of taxes
and receive u refund on It"' f,.,,t square
including    buildings..   All local     im -
provoment   taxes   must   lie  paid      and
any property over and above the   Kill
feet limit must be paid for also.
A  eonimunienlion  was received from
Hii liinan iv Co., stating  thoy were unable to complete tho ordor for the   I
inch sewer    pipe-- owing to tho    cold
ivoather, uud requesting permission   to

March, or until  the weather got warmer.   The     company contended     thai

Mr. and Mrs. Grauat asked for payment for damage alleged in have been
caused in iheir property by water out
of a creek used fnr city water works.
I'liev suid they would be satisfied if
the damage was squared by their taxes for 1909.
It appeared the creek hud spread out
of its bed and spoilt their laud, crops
etc. 'ihe council offered to have the
ereek fixed and a sum nf *|ti be paid

In other parts  of   Vancouver

The purchasing of Marino's land nour
tho power house    was discussed,     tho
council recommending  that  tho     next
council should purchase the land, provided that the strip of lurid above the
dam, which would bo flooded, bo     included.
The Mayor, at tho close of the busi I
nees, said this was lho ln-H sitting of
the council and ha took the opportunity to express his highest regard fnr

would always bo as well served as i,t

I tlio manner in which ii was played before large audiences in  Loudon     und
Sow Ntirk, und when the press of those
t-ities passed  opinion ou il   iu  a  man -
'nor that created     considerable sensation.   In Xn/n there is a greal  moral
lesson  and      the  ininit   line  situations
with which the   piece was iillod were ad
inirnbly carried out, iu a maimer true

1    I he opening act showing life bolund

absorbingly  interesting.      Miss  l-'eliou
iu the tit It- role demonstrated   to   the
audience her rare uud splendid ability

I the   part of the    pure, loving minded

among mtllic hall     classes, loving     a
man for hiiu-'f alono, for line alone ,
in a way  that.     only    the  real  thing

of the heartless man taking advantage

Scotch   Whisky
Necessity of Large Reserve Stocks.
Only when adversity conitH, can we know
our full strength—or weakness.
A smaller concern would have been completely dismayed by the disastrous fire which,
in one night, wiped out our Dundee warehouses,
together with two million gallons of Watson's
Whisky. ,
But we were carrying on business--without
inconvenience to any of our customers—the
very next day.
Ihe largo slocks of whisky we continually
hold tu reserve at other points, enabled us, at
that crucial tunc, to fill all orders with the usual
promptness - and with whisky of the uniformly
high quality that has always distinguished our
When you consider that a two million
gallon loss could not hamper us, you can readily
understand how well we ar« prepared to meet
any untoward circumstances that may arise, and
to ensure uniform age and quality for the
contents of every case wc ship:
