colored troupe ol nine srtisti, will appear at the Opera House. ' This is the
lirst trip on Canadian soil ol this

Three Men Drowned Through

hero across the Thompson river, three
mon were drowned yosttrday, The

cable which spanned the current. The
accident happened through the breaking ol the cubic. Seven men were
thrown into the wnter. Two miuiiigcd

rebate should be made on taxes and
light on the Y. M. C. A. was again

feeling of the council was that the
institution deserved the city's support
in the same way sb other institutions
have been supported by them and
since the Y. Al. C. A. was 15000 in
debt it was up to the city to help it
out. In that it waB not really legal
to rebate tuxes in such a case, and
seeing that several members of the
council were themselves members ol
the Y. Al. C. A. it was resolved by
those who were not lnombers that a
donation of $200 lie given to the Y.M
CA. to help it out.

witii the proposed new bridge about to

SATURDAY, DEC. 8, 1906
There should be no faction in out*
city, There should be a mutual interest in the prosperity ot our people.
When we see indifference to the well
being of its citizens, wc see a city
which all wise men shun. Success
and iailure are each a part of life nnil
often those who made the hardest
fight are vanquished in the race
There should he. we repeat, no friction
in any city of the west. The prosperity of one individual and every improvement made enhances the value
oi al! property in tl.e corporation
Our city is simply one big family
When there is discord there is little
pi gress. When there is a united pull
l-.-r anything its accomplishment is
made easy. Envy, jealousy and hat
red are things to be despised. Envy
is a canker .hat gnaws at the heart
and makes folks sour, disgruntled and
uiiha[ i j' jealousy warps the intellect
ind makes us unfair in passing judgment; haired doesn't pay even Irom a
sordid pi int c-l view.
it will hi' noted wilh satisfaction
thai tin- ii. I'. II. hnve commenced
operations tor the construction of a
new bridge over the. Columbia Kiver.
The condition of the present Bt.i uoture,
alilioiigh still capable ot many years
service, the rapid increase in lhc city's
magnitude nnd the great strides that
railroad triilliohns made iu the weight
of  material  and  in the frequonoy of
running  in  the  last  few years, has
made this most important step essential, not only for tho safety of passengers and freight, but also I'or the linking together ot the city with a rising
•luliurb.   The nature and peculiarities
of  the  Columbia River   demand  a
structure  that will  have to contend
against many obstacles such as sudden
freshets, drift logs and trees and other
dangers that are to be found iu rivers
of that size.
The  question  has arisen ub to tlie
construction of a  roadway  on  the
bridge  for  vehicular    trallic  which
would  creatly  benefit the settlement
on tlie west side and tend to open up
the land in that vicinity.   A bridge of
such proportions as we believe the 0.
P. R. iB  prepared  to build should be
ample loi the double track, side walk
nnd roadway, and this hitter would
not udil very considerably to .be total
cost. As regards the roadway, the
Provincial Oovernment should be approached and there would doubtless
be no difficulty in coming to some
ilelinite arrangement whereby the
whole bridge would be constructed by
both parties each bearing a proportionate amount ol the cost, liy doing
thil the onus of expenditure would
not fall so heavy on the shoulders of
one corporation and Revelstoke would
materially benefit, in that an incentive would be given to clear up the
land on the west side and the city
would be considerably augmented and
improved, lt is to be hoped that Ibis
matter of u roadway across tbe river
will receive the serious attention ni
the Provincial Government before it
is loo late, as once the brldge'hai been
structurally commenced any altera
tion in design will bo impossible. The
feeling ol Revelstoke is unanimous on
this point and to bring about a satisfactory solution of tlie question should
not be dillicult. The C. P. R lias always realized Ibis fact that, any proposition which materially affeots their
corporation, the cities through whicli
they run and the benelit of tin- cou -
try as a whole is worth considering,
and we have no hesitation in saying
that ii the Provincial Government
and the 0 P. R. put their heads together in this mutter the result would

Sixty Lives Lost in Arizona-
Wholesale Destruction by
Swollen Torrents—Financial
Loss Inestimable.
Bisbee, Arizona, Dec 6.—One ol tl.e
worst Hoods iu the history of Clifton
came down the Arizona river and
Chase Creek Monday night. The
principal business section of the town
wns almost completely ruined. From
sixty to seventy persons is the report of
the loss of life. Airs. .1, Throm, with
her husband and children, were caught
in a fulling building and killed. The
ither members of the family hud narrow escapes. One of the saloons
whioh was washed away carried several
men into the torrent. They are believed In havo been washed away. A
woman and a child were lost iu a
snail restaurant which was dashed to
pieces in the Hood. A number ol

British Columbia Militia Regi
ments May Gather at
Upper Country.
British Columbia militia men have
been inclined to complain that there
was no mobilization this year. However, if present plan., ure carried out,
tlie soldiers will have no cause to
complain ot lack of interest in their
work for the coming year. For next
spring is being planned a gathering of
Britisli Columbia citizen troops such
as nevir before occurred. Instead of
holding the mobilization at Victoria,
it is planned to take the troops from
the coast to Kamloops ana* there in
conjunction with the different corps
of the Ricky Mountain Rangers from
the cities of the interior, to hold a
grand encampment. Lieutenant-
Colonel Whyte, of the litli regiment
Duke of Con naught's Own Rilles,
slates that the scheme is still in the
air, but he had every hope of successfully pulling it off. The country, he
said, round Kamloops offers tplendid
facilities Ior military work on a scale
impossible on the coast and at Kamloops, too, could gather the companies
of ihe Kooky Mountain Rangers Irom
Nelson, Kevelstoke, Fernie, Kaslo and
all other interi ir points.
Tlie gathering will be held on Good
Friday, camps will be pitched ami on
Saturday there would be a liig sham-
light—sueh a mock battle as this
provinoe has heretofore never known
ind on Sunday a big church parade.

Rossland, Dec. 7.—The Kootenay
Curling Association met in thia city
on Wednesday alternoon at 3 o'clock.
A. li. Alackeiizic was in the chair, and
II. P. McCraney was on hand ub
secretary. The credentials committee
reported the lollowing as entitled to
Greenwood—J, E, Hooson and J*. S.
0. Fraser.
Kaslo—(I. 0. Buchanan.
Revelstoke—Represented by  P. E.
Wilson, who held proxies.
Sandon—Q. 0, Buchanan.
Rossland—J.  S. C. Fraser and Dr,
A. W. Kenning.
Nelson—F. Stnrkey and J. II. Fox.
Cranbrook—P. E. Wilson.
The report ol the credentials committee was adopted.
The Cranbrook Curling club was
admitted to membership in the association,
The question of where the next
bonspiel sliould be lieid excited a
warm but Iriendlj- debute. P. E. Wilson spoke strongly in favor of Cranbrook, and told how much it would
encourage curling in the Crow'B Nest
Pass to have the bonspiel take place
J. S. C. Frasor and Dr A. W Kenning made a strong plea in favor of
making Rossland the permanent place
for holding the bonspiel.
G. 0. Buchanan said that while he
thought Rossland was in all respects
an excellent place to hold the bo.ispiel
he had pledged himself to Cranbrook.
Fred Starkey thought it would be
well to give a young club like thnt in
Cranbrook a chance.
J. H. Fox endorsed what Air. Star-
key had said, at the same time expressing friendship for Rossland. Air
Wilson moved that the bonspiel be
held in Cranbrook, and, as an amendment to this, .Mr. Friis.'!" moved that
it be held in Rossland.
The amendment in favor of Rossland was lost and then on motion of
Dr. Kenning, seconded by Air. Fraser,
the selection of Crnnbroik as the
placo for holding the bonspiel was
unanimously assented to. Air. WilBon
thanked the assooiation lor th favor
shown his home town, and Air. Fraser
congratulated Air. Wilson on the excellent, light he had made, and moved
that after this yenr Rossland be made
. he permanent abode of thc bonspiel.
Tliis was objected to, and finally P.
E. Wilson gave notice that he would
move at the next nnm.nl meeting ot
the association to have the constitution changed so as to make Rossland
the place fnr holding future bjiispiels.

Bide out again for a "real" trying on.
Fit the bflt Into place white the
skirt la on. Somehow It takes on the
very set you've been trying for much
better that way.
As (or tho hem, one of thoBo little
insti umonis, with its bit of chalk held
(Irmly at whatever height you set It,
Ih a convenience mightily worth having. Evenness of length Is attained
without the weary work of bending
und trying to let your eye gauge it
Probably what most usually betrays
the amateur Is the direction in which the
lines of seams, ur (if the tacks abmu the
hips, run. They should round up easily
Into the belt, neither turning toward
thc back nor the front. And yet that Is
What the amateur (and even some professionals!) rarely locks to. The usual
thing |s to see tucks and seams bent
back, making a curve thut exaggerates
the size of the hips and utterly robs the
skirt of any grace.
If you are making a rklrt to wear over
a slip; nnd Intend letting a silk petticoat
do duty as that slip, by all means fit the
petticoat into a band before attempting
to hang the outside skirt. And be us particular about that fit as you are about
the lit of the outside skirt.
For that matter, every pettlcoat-he It
silk, mohair, or lingerie—should be mado
to lit smoothly over the hips and back;
and the absurd, bunchy drawing strings
done away with us a relic of an age of
barbarism in clothes,
i H, FOR the days when skirts W6to
nothing but straight breadths,
gathered around into a bui.ehi-
iness, hideous enough, it is true, but at
least the sort of thing over which a
woman could work in as tranquil a
frame of mind as over moiutuiious
There's Just one reason why the w iole
feminine world doesn't stand up and
boldly defy l»ame Fashion, and tlu.t la
because the skirts of the last yea -.md
those promised for the year tu come)
have a trick of being becoming thit Is
ru irresistible us they make 'em.
Even With a good pattern, a circular
■klrt requires coaxing to make it Just
■o ovor the hips. But the most trouble-
•ome part about it Is the way thi' hem
will sag and sag, be you expet.enced
tailor or veriest novice In the art of
handling needle and shears.
One clover dressmaker, whose skirts
•eem to sag K-ss than anybody else's in
town, has revealed the secret of her success: She hangs ihe skirt on a form and
lets it hang until "It has stretched Itself
out," as she graphically puts lt. Thon,
and only then, she puts the hem lu ill
has only been basted before), and finishes It off, fairly secure In her work.
That idea Is well worth followh g—
anything that prevents endlessly taking up the sides is to be hailed with
grateful enthusiasm.
If yuur hips are falrl. even, trv doing your lirst fitting of a skirt wrong
side out—It's a lot easier to mark
where the senilis shou'd be taken In.
Then baste them In and turn It right

"Then Uirrc ar other worries ihni belong to the rich alone," persisted lhe
woman who thinks of things, Ignoring
the Interruption. "Poor people aren't

Bone Protectors
SLIPPERY porcelain, like slippery
hardwood, is responsible for many
broken bones. It has become painfully common of late to read, as
items of news, "Mrs. X- fell whHe
stepping into her bath tub and Injured
her spine." "The Honorable So and So
cracked three ribs while bathing In a
porcelain-lined tub," "Baby Smith slipped during her bath yesterday and
sprained her arm."
Now, as the white enamel tub is entirely too cleanly and attractive in appearance to be discarded, the only thing
to be done in the interest of
breakable joints  Is  to safeguard bathing to such un extent thut danger Is reduced
to a minimum, even for the
tottery feet of the very old
or, the very young.
Fortunately the Ingenious
American is again to tho
rescue, and we have specially constructed bath mais
warranted to prevent i slipping. These are made wholly
of rubber, or ln cheaper
grades they have rubber on
each side tilled with a fabric
filling. They come In a number of different lengths and
several widths, so they are
easily adjusted to anv Eizcd
tub. Such mats can also bo
ordered to entirely cover a
tub, only leaving a hole for
the drain pipe. This, however, Is really unnecessary.
Being made of a fine,
smooth rubber, rough enough, however,
not to be as treacherous as the porcelain, these mats are perfectly sanitary
and as easily kept clean as the tub Itself. They should always be laid In the
tub before lhe water is turned on, so as
not to cover lhe drain pipe, and at the
close of each bath should be thoroughly
rinsed and hung to dry over a heavily
nickel-plated hanger, one of which
Usually comes with each mat.
The hangers nre provided with a special screw to fasten them into the wall
back of the tub, so the mats may drain
Into them.
Besides the danger of the feet slipping
on' the bottom of a tub, the rim often
proves treacherous to hands, resulting tn
a bad fall. This also has been guarded
against in the shape oi rim protectors,
These are nothing more nor less than a
small piece of rubber fastened to the
edge of the tub with nlckle-plated grips.
The surface of the rubber is so roughened that no matter how soapy the
hand it can get a firm hold on it without danger of slipping
These two simple contrivances are a
great boon to old people, especially, for
to tnem the porcelain tub hus a double
menace, since they not only fall more
readily than a younger person, but their
bones through the brlttleness of age are
much more easily broken.

FOR a long lime eminent geologists have held that liquid currents exist ln the Interior nf
the earth, and astronomers have assumed that fluid currents in tho sun
extend almost to tho centre of that
As a result of careful Investigation
and calculations, Professor T. J. J.
S.-e, of the United States Navy, denies the possibility of currents in the
earth. II" also declares that currents
in the sun nnd great planets must bo
quite shallow, nnd they cunnnt de-
Bcond to nny great depth because of
lhe greal pressure and tho rigidity of
ilie structural bodlos,

Professor See goes even further than
his two eminent predecessors in this
lino of research.
Even if it were fluid, by his cnlru-
Intlons the globe would hnve a rigidity greater than that uf wrought
iron. Hut ho finds that the averngo
!rigidity of the whole mass Is nearly
'cqunl to thnt ol nickel steel, such as
.is used in the nrmor of a battleship.
Rigidity of thc earth's crust is
about that of granite, or one-sixth
that of steel: toward the centre, however, this rigidity Increases rapidly,

Conserve Revelstoke's Upward Growth-A Warning
to Aspirants for Civic
Hevelttoke was oreated a city liy
statute un March 1st, 18011, anil a
...untl. later the lirst election tor
mayor and city council took place.
Our city has reachtd a turning point
and in its career similar to that which
has come to all cities on this continent. We have today, however, the
advantage of heing aide to copy what
they have done well and avoid the
mistakes for which they are paying
dourly today. Looking backward over
our own history from the very beginning, we see a pioneer town groping
towards a goal then so far distant
that lew ol its citizens expected to be
present at the birth ol a large city
and a luture metropolis uf the interior. It required nn optimist inded,
in those dnys to realize that the trail
of the pack horse train wus the fore
runner of the railway of our day, or to
hear in advance the bum of industry
in tbe land where the virgin loreBts
reigned alone. Looking forward we
see around us acres and acres of fertile
land, producing more wealth than
was ever dreamed o(; we see thousands
ol square miles of rich mineral hind
tbat our predecessors had no knowledge ul and furthermore we see the
resources'in the forests which in days
gone by were practically useless ns
assets to the pioneers with their crude
method oi working and limited knowledge ol putting to commercial use.
Our city is advancing by leaps and
bounds. Its population hns doubled
in only a few yeais and will r foublo
still even more rapidly. Much ns we
have spent on-city improvements and
conveniences, we must lie prepared to
spend more, on general wurk that will
benelit our people and attract the new
comer, it we are tc honor the plnce
into which our commercial prominence
is thrusting ns.
The city money must be spent
judiciously and with lhe best advantage to the bettering ol our financial
position and tu the ends whioh our
central position in the province demands. Tbe condition ol our wuter
system is not .uch that it will not
stand improvement, and the dire
necessity for n new and thorough sewerage system is uow felt. Revelitoke
has increased in population so rapidly
tbat this great improvement is absolutely necessary for the health ol the
city. We must have municipal power
to a far greater extent than ib at present in use if we ever hope to have
factories. Let us demonstrate that
we are determined not to rest a moment until the lorce thtt the Creator
has placed at our door is harnessed
and controlled to its lull extent Ior
the use ol the people and let us aid
nature by supplementing her with tbe
force of machinery and thereby insuring tbe constant supply of power and
Although our civic debt it large, so
also is our ability to pay. We must
borrow if we are to keep pace with the
times and maintain tbe position that
destiny has aisigned ub. If our credit
is impaired it is due to bad management. With the resources at our
command and the prosperity ahead ol
ue, coupled with careful management,
no necessary enterprise need be deferred for want of funds. The new
council should invite the co-operation
of various commercial and labor
organizations in an effort to establish
s means of fully considering every
proposition for the mutual advantage
of all.
The town of yesterday is the city of
today and those men who have fully
weighed the issue at stake when holding themselves ready for municipal
houorB, will recognize that they hold
tbe preBtige ol Kevelstoke in their
hands and that they have the marring
or the making of a city which is now
in its ascendent.
A few Suggestions for our
This is tl.e fattest season uf all the
glad year 1906. You nre ooming into
the holiday season with a rush nnd
there will be much good money spent
in buying presents lor one and all II
you arc in the grocery line, would'nt
it be well to start nut early and make
arrangements for the Christmas trade.
II iu dry guuds, push linens, ..apery,
and table cloths, sell knives nnd forks.
Get busy with your pencils planning
lor tlio things you are going to do.
The nights are gutting mighty frosty
and the coming ol that chilly fueling
in the midnight hour suggests tu
mother something in the nature ol
warmer blankets, niurool them, wanner clothing for (i.ther and the boyi
snd heavy winter shoes, Push these
things.    When ymi do you nru doing
tho bat, it counts. These are not
Bnuill R|iiioe ilnyB. The retailer should
do more advertising Irom now until
thc Chiistmas toll has been garnered
than nt any time this yenr. It is the
big n uiiey spending and lhe live unes
will win tl.e trade. There is just nne
tiling that you cannot afforded to neglect. OI course this is not special for
this leason's advertising, but for all
times It is tbe cardinal principle
thnt ive want to rap homo to you once
again. The priceless ad it wasted
money, Tberelorc you must use prices
freely to bring people who know the
value i if gor.da and tbo value uf money
to your store. Yuur stocks should be
the most appetizing if you are in the
loud li ie, cnmplcttt and nicely assorted
il in the clothing or dry goods lines,
Talk about these things, Talk
abuut tbe line opportunity for selections. Advance the purity uf your
groceries, Dwell on lhe excellence of
your shoes, the fout form and the
ability to lit. Speak of the txcelleut
opportunities for securing the winter's
•upply ol clothing. And if yuu nil-
vertise generously, proporly and with
plenty of prices, your harvest will be
a tat one.
The March of Progress—Revelstoke in the Ascendent.
Ilevelstoke has witnessed many
changes since Christmas of 1905. The
wave of prosperity has gradually been
increasing in volume and rolling west
leaving behind it a vast lield ol riches
and prospering Immunity. Ilevelstoke
has been carried into tbe onward aud
upward i-iibI. and the westward trend
of population and tangible wealth has
-It ninny traces in our midst.
Sitnnted as we are, and happily so,
on the grout highway of transcontinental communication, a very great
deal i [ that which passes lo.iind fro
it deposited here. As the gateway lo
the rich und bountiful regions of tl.e
interi -r, Revelstoke derives considerable benelit from her position and
while the industries of which she is
the centre continue to pour their
Iruits into her cotters, she will never
allow another city to usurp her posi-
tiuu. The rise of Revelsloke has been
gradual, but the last twelve mouths
havo seen many changes, and changes
for the better. Our movement has
been lurever onward and upward, there
has been no going back and this
Christinas will see the instances of
that forward march in the increase of
business, the large additions to our
buildings and the augmented population. The signs ol the times are no
more strongly evinoed than in our
stores and business houses where, as
has been stated in another column,
the display this year far exceeds that
of any previous time.
In casting ones eye round the city,
new buildings can be seen on all sides
both commercial and residential. The
latest additions to the business portion of Revelstoke are the new P.
Burns' & Co's. tine brick building, the
new offices ot the Mail-Herai.u,
Kincaid & Anderson's office, W. B.
Robertson's office and the addition to
the Revelstoke Club. J. Henderson
has constructed a line new livery
stable and many handsome residences
have gone up, the local contractors
having bad a busy season. All this
goes to show the popularity of our city
and tbe extent ol her increase.
Tourists from all over the world
gather here, capitalists congregate and
draw a host of smaller fry behind
them. Industries have had a great
incentive and the value of timber and
lands has risen by leaps and bounds.
Our luture indeed looks prosperous, il
what has taken place in the last
twelve months is an average f< r the
city, the time will be but short before
we can claim the title of the metropolis
ot the interior. Railroads will reach
us and make Revelitoke a great distributing centre and we shall be in
close touch with the linancial, commercial and touring world, Let ut
then this Christinas endeavor to pats
the remaining days of the old year in
active preparation lor the opening nf
the new with fresh and resolute endeavors lo uphold tbe name ol our
fair city and act as guud citizens
should, with reciprocity nnd content.
Let us all pull together and act iu
harmony for thc good of the community and lor our own peace, always
bearing in mind the ever true prin
oiple, that a "city divided against
itself cannot stand."

pleasantly. "So here 'tis—an' wish-

"Och, hear the woman now!"   Mrs.

Nora's heart. Delia could never
hnld up her head again! She must
keep her dreadful Becret! Still questions—questions! She answered them
as best sho could. Her age. her husband's, their nationality, the causo
ot their distress.
"That's all. The man looked up
from his writing. "A visitor will
call to Investigate, That's all now."
Thon Kitty found hesself outside
thc wooden paling. A stream of people wore surging across the room to
nnother window on the opposite side
—a window behind which barrels and
boxes, sacks and bundles, all containing necessaries of life, rose In a
mighty idle straight up to the ceiling. The portly policeman tnok pity
on her bewilderment.
"You'll be around to-morrow," he
assured her cheerfully. "Visitor will
got to your place to-day. H'ell glvo
you a ticket.   Come in to-morrow."
She did not know how she got out
on Clinton street. She was buffeting
her way back, her empty basket
dangling on her arm, and in her
heart deep disappointment—a bitter
despair. She did not know that, had
she stated how Immediate was their
necessity for relief, she need not have
waited for help until otter the formal
investigation. Now her only wild
desire wns to get bacv before the
visitor arrived—to make sure Dennis
would not grasp the Import ot that
humiliating visitation. Surely, surely
folks were prosperous this year!
Surely this was to be a grand
Thanksgiving! Sho could not remember ever having dodged so many
dangling turkeys before the doors of
the butcher shops. She hnd walked
the whole way back—she was nenr
their poor dwelling before she remem-
bered that tightly clenched In her
hand she held tho fifty cents Mrs.
Comlsky had given her foi the black
hen of elusive memory.
"Glory be!" she criod, "an' me to
be co.uplaln'! Mc—that*, got a
han'lul o' sliver." Hut suddenly she
l*nit her brows crafylly—walked more
slowly, lt was wllh much deliberation that the made some purchases.
Meat was one. She knew that except to the families of tho old soldiers no meat was furnished to thc
poor bv the County. She took with
her only tw-o ounces of tea and a
loaf ol hr«ad.   She would come    Ior
thc fire out and Dennis asleep. He
hod managed to crawl over to the
lied. He wns still sleeping when the
man sent from the County Agent's
made his appearance. He looked
sharply around the bare, orderly
room, opened drawers nnd bins,
scrutinized the smnll blocks heap in
the coal hox, asked a lot more questions, nil of which Kitty insisted on
.answering outside the little ramshackle house lest "himself" should
hear, and finally gnve Kitty n yellow ticket which she was to present
| for "single rations."
1 It is the first step that counts.
Kilty found her second deception less
difficult than her lirst. She had
stayed with Norn the previous day.
She had not gone to market. Yes.
Alary Ellen wns quite recovered. And
now sure she must be off if they
were to have a bite ot Thanksgiving
dinner at all, at nil!

coal check, and the "single rations"
which were her due. Could she carry
them all home?   The flour was    un-
