Shoe Comfort
When your feet hurt, you can't work earnestly or
intelligently. Foot-pain makes your body tired and
tires your brain. There is a shoe for men that does not
hurt. It is the "PATRIOT." It is made over stylish
foot-conforming lasts and fits and feels good from the
start. There is no "breaking-in" necessary. PATRIOTS are Goodyear Welts, meaning no tacks, wax
or threads inside to hurt, burn and blister the feet.
Sale Price, $5.00
The Oxfords fit snug and close around the ankle
and there is no gaping at the sides. An innersole of
ground cork keeps out the dampness. To fully appreciate them you have to wear them. Many styles—all
good ones. The «'« PATRIOT " is a member of the
" Star Brand Family." "Walk on Stars, Same as
We Do."

STEAM LAUNDRY FIRE
Prompt Action by No. 2 Brigade
Saves Total Destruction
Exceptional promptness and deoi
sive action on the part of lhe bo a of
Fire Brigade No. 2 on Satuiday night
prevented what might have been a
disastrous blaze, resulting; in heavy
financial loss. As it is, the Are which
broke out shortly alter seven o'olock
on Saturday evening in tbo steam
laundry was confined chiefly to the
engine and boiler house which was
gutted and spreading through the
partition into the main part ol the
building oharred the wood work and
no more It appears that the hands
bad left at the usual time and the
engine, to all intents and purposes,
safe, when from some unknown cause
the toiler house took Are and the
wood being thoroughly dry and inflammable was rapidly consumed.
Tbe flames burst through the roof
and it was this which gave the alarm,
a* a resid nt on McKenzie Avenue
seeing the blaze concluded that it wa
not caused by bonfires but by the
burning roof of the steam laundry.
Communication was at once made by
telephone wilh Fire Hall No. 2, other
alarms meanwhile having been turned
in and the brigade fortunately securing a rig made quick time for tlie
scene of the blize. The fire was
found to have got a good hold of the
boiler house which waa practically
gutted, and the flames were running
up the outer wall of the main building
and creeping through the partition
and along the roof when the water
was brought into play. The city electrician rapidly cut the electric wires
to prevent live wire danger. A powerful jet ol water was directed into the
heart of the fire and after a short
tussel the tremendous pressure from
the nozzle got the upper hand and
human skill gained the day.
On going over the ruins it was
found that the main building was
only partially damaged, aod tbe machinery untouched, although there
is practically nothing left of the boiler
r Kim. The larger part of the clothes
which were in tbe building were hurriedly taken out and only a few odds
and ends were burned. The lire nri-
gade are to be highly comraendid for
their prompt action and splendid woik
in getting at tbe heart ol the blaze so
quickly, which undoubtedly saved the
buildiug Irum being entirely destroyed,
J. C. Hutchison, the proprietor,
states that the insurance will cover
the damage, the policy being issued
by E. A. Haggen in the London
Mutual. Preparations are now going
on for the erection ol a new boiler
house and engine room and Mr.
Hutchison hopes to be able to have
the laundry agaiu io operation on
Monday, May 11th.

for the sake of parental indifference
or selfishness, is not doing justice
either to tlie child or to tlio teacher
and very soon a spirit, of "I don't
oare if 1 do not learn" ia fostered
which in years to come may he the
ruin of a promising scholar. The
absence of one pupil retards n
whole class, as when the absentee
returns the class must of necessity
go slow in order to allow the child
time to grasp the subjects before
the advanced stages can be dealt
with. Thus it will be seen how
particular parents must be in keeping their children up to the mark
and creating the desire to attend
school and take an interest in their
work, and no parent who has any
love for, or desire to see their children make progress at school,
which not only trains the mind
but also the body, will from selfish
reasons, wilfully keep them at home
when they should be lawfully at
their studies.

FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
Apropos of the fire in the steam
laundry on Saturday night and the
prompt manner in which Fire
Brigade No. 2 responded to the call,
it is gratifying to see that we have
an organization who are thoroughly
alive to their work and responsibilities as firemen, and can be relied upon to be "there" when
wanted. The Brigade on this
occasion preventsed what was undoubtedly the commencement of a
bad and seriouB fire and wc think
that the citizens as a community
cannot over estimate the value of
this volunteer service in its efforts

SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1908
PARENTAL OBLIGATIONS
In our last issue there appeared
a letter signed by A. E. Miller, the
priucip-1 of the school, complaining ol the irregular attendance on
the part of many of the pupils. In
moet cafe* '.he blame can be laid
on tbe parents themselves, who
either from indifference or as a
matter of convenience to themselves-, allow their children to remain from school. In both cases
we think that the parents are to
blame, since in the former, it should
be the duly of every parent to see
that their children attend school
and not by their own indifference,
take no particular pains as to
whether they go or not; and in the
latter case, a parent has no moral
right to distinctly violate that
section of the school act which says
that every child from the age of
seven to fourteen inclusive shall
attend school during the regular
school hours ot every shool day,
unlets sicknees or other similar
causer prevent them, and detain
their children at home for their
own convenience, thereby creating
in the childish mind a desire to
keep away from school, and also
indirectly spoiling the work and
interest in the same, already instilled into the child. Parenls
should be careful in all that they
do before their children, for the
youibfold mind ia prone to accept
and adopt any example which
their father or mother may set
them. It is not fair to cailnc children to lose even a moment ut tbeir
school training, for every hour lost
can never be really regained, except by extra work in play hours
on tbe part of tbe pupil, which is
rarely, if ever done. For a child
to lose valuable time iu study just
to cope with the city's greatesl
enemy. This work was admirably
carried out, without disorder or undue excitement, and this, coupled
with a fine city water pressure, in
our opinion saved the building
from total wreck. One point which
we have frequently advocated at
different times is.that our fire alarm
system is not adequate for the Bize
and expansion of the city, and not
only that, it is unreliable when
emergency arises. Although the
boxes are tested once a week, and
the defects if any, remedied there
and then, there iB nothing to show,
that, at the time they are actually
required to be used in any emergency, they are in working order.
Such a condition as.this might end
disastrously and it should be the
chief care of the municipal authorities to pay particular attention to
the fire alarm system and ensure
its real reliability in time of need.
Uuder the present system, the
number ot alarms cannot be extended and we think that now
Revelstoke has increased in size to
such a large extent that the public
safety demands a better supply of
alarm boxes and a system that will
be found lo do the work called for.
WASTE OF DAYLIGHT
Considerable interest has been
evinced of late in the advisability
of lengthening the days, now that
summer bas come and pushing
time ahead one hour in order to
give a longer evening for pastimes
and amusements, and to
those who work in stores and offices
more time to devote to their homes
and to any recreation which at the
present time is so curtailed. This
important question has been discussed both in England as well as
in Canada and has already been
put into practice in Port Arthur
and Fort William. We would suggest that time be pushed ahead one
hour, thus when it is 5 o'clock now,
make it 6 o'clock. This would
mean starting work an hour earlier
but the stores, etc., would close an
hour earlier and afford longer
evenings. We fully believe that
the new order of things would prove
particularly satisfactory to all
Revelstoke. An opportunity has
been afforded lately for people to
observe the bourn of good daylight
that have been wasted in the morning while waiting for the tis-.tial time
to commence the day's work, and
the possibilities for out door pleasures that have been lost by reason
of the present hours of work now
confining them to stores, shops, etc.,
until nearly sundown in tho evening. Practically the only appreciable difference there will be in the
change of lime is the lengthening
ot the daylight period in tho evening and shortening it in the morning. We do not anticipate any
trouble in the change, in fact wn
believe that it will he accepted
unanimously by the citizens ns a
community and the sooner the
necessary steps are taken, either in
Editors are Cheerful Liars
Did it ever occur to any why country iditors are such cheerful liar,-?
The cross road town today would boy
oott tbe man who dared to tt 11 the
truth and nothing but the truth in a
country newspaper. Strange us it
mny seem to some, editors as a clusa
are born witb a conscience, but as
they rub up against tbe lying public
wbo have some selfish motive in view,
their early training st their mother's]
knee is loo often forgotten in tbe
^crumble tor tbe almighty dollar.
Mother Swell-head has a ten parly
with twelve present. She ask- tlie
editor to say there were fifty picsont
aud a four course banquet foils wed,
Mr. Blowhard orders nine dollars
worth of goods aud asks you to say
that he bas nine hundred dollars
worth on the rond.
Let the meanest old cuss in town
pass in his clucks aud tbe preacher
and editor laud bim to tbe skies. No
matter if be has been a wife beater, a
chicken thief and a drunken reprobate
who "bucks the tigeT" while bis wife
chases dirty undershirts up and down
the washboard to feed ber balf-starved
family, when this man's carcass ia
deposited in the bone orchard, then it
is that the public expects tlie editor
to be a smooth liar and whitewash bis
benighted soul.
Next comes the flannel-tongued
scsndal-monger of the female persuasion, who has ruined the lives of many
young girls, and who bus kept tbe
social circles ol the town in hot water
for years by the use of her deceitful,
lying tongue; she becomes an angel in
the columns of the newspaper the moment death paralyzes her.
A preacher may be un ordinary pulpit pounder and a bore to tbe community, but every time he talks the
editor is no good if he fails to say "the
sermons are musically deep ai.d dramatically interesting.''
Every "dinky" entertainment   must
be   grand,   every   schuoima'am proficient and every business man progressive, every city dad religions); perfect,
every    new-comer   a  valuahle acquiei-j

The surrounding district is [unious
throughout the continent for its
mountains of low grade ores. The
Big Bend contains some valuable
mineral deposits, while transportation
facilities for tho marketing of the
same are exceptionally good.
TIMBER
Throughout the district there i. an
abundant supply of timber such as
pine, nr, tamarac, cedar, hemlock and
balsam, and tbis stretches on all sides
but principally up the Columbia river
and Arrow lake district, assuring an
unlimited supply for many years to
come. In the neighborhood are superior beds of clay for brick making.
TRANSPORTATION
The C.P.R. main transcontinental
line runs through the city, which is a
junction for the Arrowhead and Kootenay branch, which taps tbe Kootenays.

here infirm and suffering, aod wbo
bare gone away cured can testify.
FRUIT
The confidence of tbe residents in
tbe fruit possibilities of this district is
shown in a practical manner by the
establishments ol large orchards aud
farms. As a Iruit country the district
adjacent to the city is unsurpassed
and it has been repeatedly eaid that
nowhere in B. C. can be grown fin-r
strawberries. As yet the quantity of
fruit shipped is small, but hundreds of
aores of trees are now planted which
will develop into rich and profitable
orchards. The following statistics
supplied by the. local Fruit Growers'
Association, although a very conservative estimate, will show the progr. ss
we sre making bere in agriculture:
Acreage planted in various cropB 600
"      under fruit 93
Number of bearing trees 300
"       "   trees not bearing        4,000
Estimate   number ol   crates of
small fruit for 1008 800
Estimate   number   of  crates of
orchard fruit for 1908 380

WASTE OF DAYLIGHT
Suggestions Regarding Hours
of Daylight in Summer
The question of daylight during the
summer months is one which should
be of interest to everyone here. As
things are at present there will be
very little time for outdoor pleasure
after the business of the day is over.
We would suggest that Father Time
be pushed along an hour, lor instance,
when it is eight o'clock now, make it
nine o'clock, tbis would of course
mean starting to work an hour earlier
than at present, but business places
would be closed an hour earlier in the
evening, thus affording a longer evening for boating, tennis, football, basketball and the other numerous pastimes which we are fortunate enough
to have, than we have at present.
The London Times devotes over half
a column to this question and states
that a bill is already in tho House of
C< nini'ins and bas passed its nccond
reading dealing with this question,
und it is receiving unanimous support.

Cricket
The lirst match in the inter-club
series for the Enterprise Brewing Co.
cup, was played on Saturday under
delightlul weather conditions. The
teams competing were the Victoria and
the Maple Leaf. The fielding was
really good, neither team being better
than the other in that respect.
G Qiiinn wss playing his first
match at Revelstoke, and as a bowler
be puts down s good length, medium
pace ball—looking very easy to play,
but which is really a deceiver.
To Field and to Shaw belong the
honor of making the Victoria team's
score respectable, for without these
two men the score would total only
fifteen.
The bowlers, Entwistle, Norris, Brier
and Qninn, have started their averages
well.
Shaw's reputation as a gocd bat hat
followed him from the Old Country,
and on Saturday be proved that he
has lost none of his prowess.
The value to a side of a "stonewall
er" was pr. ved when Harry Edwards
stopped tbe rot that bail set in and
thus assisted Shaw t pu'l the scoie
up to within three of the Maple Leaf
total.
The Maple Leaf In tn are thus one

Interesting Lectures
Citizens of Revelstoke will be privileged shortly to hear one of the finest
lectures ol the day. Miss Ada L. A.
Murcutt, wbo is uow touring tbe
province, will deliver a course of
lectures in the Opera House in tbis
city, commoncing Sunday evening,
May 24th for five nights. Of a commanding personality, possessing fine
elocutionary ability and with a
fund of knowledge, gained first baud,
Miss Murcutt easily ranks with the
foremost platform speakers of the day.
A world wide traveller, Miss Murcutt
has four times compassed the globe,
travelling extensively as tbe representative of a New York literary syndicate for the purpose of reporting on
the religious, social and economical
conditions of the nations. She has
thus had opportunities which do not
come to the ordinary traveller. Be
cause of her extensive travels Miss
Murcutt has been honored with membership in the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, which is not often
conferred upon woman, by this conservative society. Miss Mareutt bas
been lecturing in this province since
the first of February and has easily
sustained the record she bas made in
Scotland, England, New Zealand,
Auatralia and other countries, crowding the largest opera houses and balls
for five nights a week hy limply leo-
turing.
