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, jSo.OO
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."

RAILROADS
V. EMPLOYEES
C. P. R,  and   C. N. R.   Machinists Almalgamate to Re
sist   Wage    Reduction   or
Union Extermination
Winnipeg, April 21.—The, amalgamation ol the mechanical departments
ol the western lines of the 0. P. B. and
C. N. R. waa effected Saturday and
will light any attempt on the part ol
tbe companies to either reduce wages
or exterminate the unions. The fed-
ei'iition embraces iu all about .'1000
men, 2000 of whom are on the C.P.R
and 1000 on the C.N R. The men are
preparing for May 1st when tbe notice
received from the companies to the
effect tbat all schedules would be ter-
minalid goes into tiled. No other
communication has been received
since.
The two sides are closely watching
each other's movements. Tbe men
bave appointed a joint committee,
which will represent the federation
and treat with the companies. Tbe
committee has approached tbe companies asking for an interview on the
matter and tbe C.P.R. has agreed to
meet a committee from the men.
It is believed that tbere is really a
concerted action in this matter on the
part ol all railroads on the continent.
RAILWAY GARDENS
Employees Take Great Interest
in Beautifying Grounds.
The annual distribution of seeds
from the floral department of the
Canadian Pacific is now taking place,
and as a result of the efforts of N. S.
Dunlop, .he C. P. R. floral enthusiast,
during the coming summer there will
be a streak of flowers and shrubs across
the whole continent from St. John to
Vancouver Island, which will tend in
no small degree to give travellers an
idea of the beauty of the country.
From a small beginning this floral
scheme of tbe big railway bas become
almost an national institution, and
the interest in it is growing very fast
amongst the employees of tbe C. P. R.
especially those in small stations,
where 'bey have time to go in for
gardening.
The scheme is evidently becoming
a greater success every year. ''During the past lew months," said Mr.
Dunlop, "I have had hundreds of letters from railway agents, section men
and others who received these packages ol seeds, telling of the great
pleasure they derived Irom them.
Tbe work has proved a blessing to
thousands of employees of the company in the lonely districts of the
west, where both they and their families have taken great interest iu
beautifying the stations with tbeir
garden work. This year we expect to
have more railway gardens than ever
before, aud the result cannot but be
both beneficial to the road and ite employes, as well as a source of pleasure
to travellers along the line."
GRAPE CULTURE
Colony of Germans to be Settled on Kootenay Lake
Nelson, April 21.—Joseph Kdiuger,
representing the British Columbia
Colon nation Agency, has purchased
345 acres on tbe arm of Kootenay
Lake, west of Nelson, and will settle a
colony there ol Germans, who are all
used to grape culture, and brought
here from Kurnpean vineyards. Some
are already here, and others will arrive
this month, some twenty-live families
iu all. .
Grape culture aud lhe making ol
native wine are the chief features, but
fruit and market garden stuff will be
raised as wejl. The present venture is
only a beginning ol a large undertaking along tbe lines indicated. Other
lands will be rapidly acquired under
tbe one management, and many more
settlers brought iu this year. Mr.
Edinger has lieen iu Manitoba and the
territories for the post twenty-two
years, and declares the soil and climate here are particularly adapted lor
gtape culture.
Wo are just opening up a nice line

GRUESOME DISCOVERY
Decomposed  Body  Found at
Three Valley*-5 Months in Ice
Coroner Cross held an inquest on
the body of David Gilroy last night,
who was found drowned in a lake at
Three Valley on Saturday last. From
the evidence it appears that 'he deceased had been known at Wigwam,
where he bad been working in a lumber camp the beginning of November,
and had left there in order to get
work at Three Valley. The deceastd
was also idcntilicd as being an ex-
member of the Order of Knglee at
Arrowhead, and further recognized us
a man who on Oct 8th, 1907, had
purchased a watch and charm Irom a
local jeweller's store. Evidence show-
ed that about Nov. 10, 1907, the deceased had left Revelstoke for Time
Valley but had not been seen sincealivc
Provincial Constable Kington stated
that he had received the body where
found by a mill hand in the water at
Three Valley on Saturday. Two bottles ol whisky and a gold watch, which
was identified ss being sold him in
Revelstoke, were found on decessed.
The buily when found was some distance from the C.P.K. truck, in the
lake west of tho Mundy Lumber Co.'h
store at Three Valley, and was in a
bad stste ol decomposition. Deceased
had not been seen since Nov. 10, and
it is supposed he was beating his way
in s stste of intoxication to Three
Valley on a freight and being carried
past the station or stores junipssd or
fell oil' tho cars, into the water, striking lis head violently snmewhore, as
marks on thu deceiiped's head seemed
to show. Tho body was frozen in all
the winter, and only discovered when
the ice melted. The jury brought in
a verdict of death from drowning.
Tne body was interred yesterday
afternoon.

SNOWSLIDES
BLOCK TRACK
Avalanche of Snow and Ice
Sweeps Away Three Hundred Feet of C. P. R. Road
Bed at Bear Creek.
With distant multled rumbling, so
well known to every railroad man in
the mountains, increasing to a roar
that could be heard for miles, a huge
avalanche nf snow und debiis tore
doivn the mountain side at No.2 snow
Hhi'd at Bear Creek, shortly before
midnight on Monday last, sweeping
with irresistible force part of the shed
and completely demolishing one end
of it, snd carrying the watchman's
house, watchman and all, several yards
leaving it on the edge ol the embankment and tearing away a hundred
yards of C. P. R. track in its headlong
career. Fortunately no train was
passing at the time and no one was
injured, although the watchman had
a narrow escape.
A small army of men were sent out
and bents were made to carry the
rails, while the snow which blocked
the track at either end, and which
completely tied up the trallic was being removed. Passengers and baggage
were transferred across the gap as the
trains came up. This is the largest
slide this season. No. 97 arrived at
3 a in. this morning.
Another heavy rock, mud and snow
slide swept over Laurie snow shed at
11 30 p.m. on Monday, breaking in the
tunnel in three places, and blocking
the track for many yards. The
watchman, after being hemmed in for
a time between two large piles of
debiis, extricated himself aud gave the
warning to the approaching train.
The rotary could not work in tbe rock
and mud and gangs of men were employed removing the rubble.
METALIZED CORPSES
Dead  Bodies  to   Look   Like
Solid Gold.
Chicago, April 22—The Inter-
Ocean to-day eayB: Wolfram C Fuclis,
an X-ray expert of Chicago, who died
a year ago with X-ray cancer, a martyr to science, discovered a marvellous
secret by which he was able to work
certain changes in living organisms
that transform them into metal.
For two years belore his death he
conducted a series of experiments
which reached their climax in the
uielalizition of a rose. Reinhardt D.
Fuchs, his brother, took up the work
where lie left off and brought tbe secret process to practical peifcciion.
Mr. Fuchs is planning to melali/e a
human body, which he proposes to put
on exhibition in a downtown window.
It will be that of a pauper. By the secret process of metuliz ition it will be
changed into a statute which to all appearances will be of solid gold.
The cost of thid strange conversion
ol a human corpse into metal, according to the inventor's estimate, will be
$500.
MERRY WIDOW HAT
Is   Barred   by   Priest  From
Church.
Kansas City, Mo., April 21,—For
the lirst time in the history ol Kl,
Mary's Roman Catholic church, just
across the Kansas Missouri line,
women attended service without that
part ol a women's apparel most criticised by otni-r women.
Mure than twenty women went
through their devotions with bared
heads. It ull ctiiiiu about through an
injunction issued a week agu by the
aged priest, Father Anton Kulils, who
declared that "Merry Widow" hats hod
no place in the church of God, and that
they did not go well with the cruicilix
He asked that any woman who wore a
hat measuring more than two (cot iu
diameter tu leave it with the sexton
before entering church,
Following these instructions, about
hall a cotd of "Merry Widow's" were
stacked up in the anteroom ol the
church, while their owners listened
wilh bared heads to the rending of the
Litany. No word of complaint wus
heard us the women tiled silently into
thu lil lie edifice.
Immigration olllcials roport an increase of OO pur cent in lho American
emigration lo thu Canadian Northwest
for the lirst quartet of thu current
year, as o jtnparcd with the first quarter
of last year. The outlook for the present year is that the Canadian wust
will receive 70,000 settlers Irom tho
United States.

OPTIMISTIC PRINCIPLES
Money is commencing to seek
investment and from all parts of
the continent reports are showing
that the call for money in the
stock market has eased up anil the
bank*, are willing to let go for
legitimate investments. liank
stateoif-ntB show that practically
all of the banks in the country
have in excess of their full legal
reserve and are no longer desirous
of holding to a lot ol capital which
is- not working for them. For
money to lie ot any use to n coun
try or a community, it must lie in
circulation nnd the fact of a circulation. Iseing establirbod each individual in that community will
nap a benefit. It is unreasonable
to rappoie that you tan delay
payment of just indebtedness because of anxiety regarding business
conditions in the immediate future
and not suffer from the resulting
depression. If any individual
(n-reon were to follow  this  OOUne,
WE WANT POPULATION.
Canada wants population, says
Industrial Canada, that much is
conceded by everyone, and the
Government is justified in paying
for it. We are not, however, bo
badly in need of population that
the Government is justified in buying the riff-raff of the Old Country
and transplanting it into Canada.
Mr. Savage says that the booking
agent who sends out emigrants
should be a man of conscience, and
he should have a knowledge of the
country and of the capabilities of
the people he sends out. It is a
serious business, and carries a
grave responsibility, but it is to be
feared that too many of the agents,
who find recognition in Canada,
look upon it merely as a good field
for graft, and work it on that principle. The orders issued to the
Government's accredited agents to
restrict their energies to the selection of farm laborers, navvies, and
domestic servants, leaves all the
rest an eaBy prey to the grafter.
Thny do not scruple to list them as
farmers, domestics or navvies when
it means XI apiece for doing it.
If the Government's representatives
were authorized to deal with all
classes seeking information they
would be in a better position to
check graft and send tthc right people out. The point is tbat the
mere issuing of orders not to send
out mechanics does not prevent
mechanics being sent out under
false pretences, and then working
their way back to damn the country. There nre times when we
want mechanics for the development of the country and the extension of its industries, and at such
times they are just as valuable to
Canada a6 farmers, and the Government should see that they are
given every chance to come. When
they are not needed let them be
warned to remain sway. We need
population, but it takes more than
fanners, domestic servants and
navvies to populate a country. Ii
should be the aim, as it is the
duty, of the Qovernment to get the
best class to come, and   to see that
THE REAL
NEW YEAR
May 1st Should be Proclaimed
New Year's Day—Winter
the Jailer—Spring the Deliverer.
It is a great pity that some arrangement cannot be made with the almanac makers whereby the year could
begin with the first of May. On the
1st of January one hss no real sensation of the beginning of a new period,
tbe starting of a new deal. Between
tbe Inst day of December and the 1st
day of January there exists no substantial difference. Human nature
does not signify by one heart throb
that it is aware of the change. Mature
does not turn over in its sleep when
the whistles blow and the bells ring lo
announce tin- artificial dawn of the
artificial year, or disturb the snow
blanket under which it has lain inanimate for a month or more. On tlm
other hand we spontaneously signal
ize the arrival of spring by a revolution in our thoughts, our manners,
our physical relations to the world,
our clothes, our houseB and our hahip.
Nature, contemptuous of the aatrono-
m rd, shakes otV its cold lethargy and
gives us a happy new year nt the
flowery threshold of the monih of
May. We cannot suggest bow tbe
proposed change could be bis ugl t
about or whether Pope Pius who saw
the real New Year sail splendidly
actoss tbe lagoon in his beloved Venice for many years, could upset the
decree of his learned predecessor. Ore
can only say that, one's own blood
tells us that although by tbe illumine
we are well into the 6econd quarter of
the new year, the old year ia on'y just
going. Against our craven submission
to tiie wbl'i'S of tlie seasons, Doctor
J.ihnson fays: "Surely nothing is
more reproachful to a being endowed
with reason than to resign its poweis
to the air nnd live in dependence in
the weathei and the wind for tbe only
blessings whieli nature put into our
power, tramp ility and benevolence.
Tbis distinction of seasons is produce I
only by imagination operating tr
luxury. lie that sball resolutely
excite his faculties or exert his virtues
will aoon make himself superior to the
seasons."
Tbe spring is the open door of tbe
real new year. The new year to have
reallv the significance tbat we now
pretend for it ought to suggest a
promise ol better things. If tbe grace
were within there would be out « ard
and visible signs. Our jaded Spirits
are supposed to bu revived with hope
of the future, but how can they revive
witb tbe larger and colder, and worst
part of tbe winter rising before them.
The new year should mean^a striking
otf of shackles, a general moral and
physical gaol delivery. Uur artificial
new year but leads us from tbe cold
celis of Decetn'ier to tbe Colder cells of
January, Winter, no matter what we
pretend, old or young, is thraldom (or
all northern climes. It is a constant
tuhi with a cruel and zealous jailer
who is never more dangerous tlmn at
moments when he appears t • relax Ins
vigilance Word is pas wl round that
spring is at   hand.      The   jailer    still
nearly all of them is tin low, tbe cos1
of white paper and manufacture is too
high, and they give a great deal too
much for the one meigru cent that
most ol them ii- w sell for. We hope
uur Greut Re, tilator will make a law
soon thnt no newspaper shall be more
than four pages long on weekdays
and six pages on Sunday, nor sell lor
less than two cents.—New York Lite.
Keep Away From Prince Rupert
Vancouver, April 21—0. A. Mc-
Nii'lmll, purchasing agent of tIn llimul
Triuik Pacific Railway in Vanoouver,

Capitalists Interested
It is evident that more attention
than ever is lining paid to Canada hy
capitalists. A few days ago a manager
of June   of    the     Irust  companies   in
Winnipeg is reported as stating that
hi' was in correspondence with parties
in India wins would Invest considerable money in Canada this viar.
" They can do much better here," Ibis
manager .ani.     Late this year one of
till' agents handling perhaps the largest volume of loans in the i'ity went
east, and he waa then of the opinion
that  then'    would    be   practically   no
collections mads this year.   When  he
came Isnik t  e money still   continued
to come   in.      It   has   been  slightly   ...        ,    .    , ,.

has arrived. That returns have been
satisfactory is best evidenced by the
fact that at the present moment no
welt and good; but each citizen of!onei""° anxious to lend money on
Revelstoke is a uuitand bis* course i(arm ll""1 »*»urlty as those  that have
uf action may safely be regarded
as an index of what others will do,
Lack of confidence is the term that
briefly summarizes the reason why
money is being kept out ol circulation which might help to restore
normal conditions. You are mere*
hJMtting back and waiting for
others to shake off their fear before
you follow in their footsteps. Hut
suppose these other faint hearts
delay too long—who will start the
procession back to normal times ?
Retrenchment* have already been
necessary bsjctUM of the money
hoarding      by    all   and    further
large amounts invested in this way.
Severs! companies aro endeavoring to
plan: loans at tha present moment.
Trust companies are handling money
coining from various outside, as well
a* from Canadian sources. It is evident that with the drop in money
rates, more is available for tbe west.

The Making of Newspapers
Considered as a manufacturing business, newspaper making is enormously

LOST RIVERS
OF THE WEST
Hide and Seek Sti earns—Cougar Creek near Revelstoke
an Underground Torrent 48-
000 Years Old.
On the American continent there
are no natural phenomena ul mure
mysterious and fascinating interest
than the lost rivers of tlie West
These hide-and-seek streams ns a rule
bead in the mountain areas and ru-li
downward   into    bowl-like    valleys,
Drynook, is just below Rpenoes llr'nlne.
It is ii whole mountain-side gradually
shifting into the Thompson Hiver.
Above this moving mountain isa hike
nf    Bi npy, greasy water.      This Suiipy
hike, us it is locally known, seeps
through the suil till it Htrikea bedrock,
and then works its way along the sur
face of the rock, oozing out below tlie
led of the Thompson. The bedruck
bring thus lubricated the whole mountain gradually slips down, and since
the construction of the C.P.R. its tails
have hod to bo moved several times.
No amount of piling', of which much
has been done, seems of any avail in
stopping its infinitesimal progress.
Year after year it moves down, nnd
every few  years (he rondbe I has to be
sure. When holes are driven through
this stratum an artesian well is formed.
In other cases the wii/er is absorbed
and is taken up sby the spoors-like
material, and  disappears from sight,
passing beneath und through lhe lava.
and finally emerging through i'ark
caverns and deep, canyons inin the
main stream.
Thia wonderful lava bed makes n
natural valve regulator. It swallows
up tbe Hoods that ceme down the
sleep slopes. It absorbs the rains and
snows, and then releases them slowly
through a filler miles and miles in
length, into the river channel. There
are no turbid Hoods in the Deschutes.
In fact, there are no Hoods Ht all,
Day after day  and   year after ye»r its
swept downward and westward, covering the beautiful valley with a blunktt
of fiery Ijquid mure than Sol) feet
thick. In the cataclysm all the teen
ing life wus annihilated The rivers
were burned up and their channels
obliterated.
The Snake River cut its way thru
the lava sheet, carving for itself one of
fie must wonderful canons in tlie
west; other streams from the south
persisted and finally joined the parent
stream. On the north the rivers en
countered the wall of lava, but did not
out through it. It is a striking by-
drographic feature of the valley that
for hundreds of miles not a river
cr, sies it from the north.

Some of them reappear miles from the
vanishing point, while others are. lost
for ever and no man knows what becomes of their waters.
British Columbia has several of
these rivers, the best known having
been discovered only in the last couple
of years within a lew miles of the 0.
P. R. main line. It is Cougar Cieek,
and il runs plump into tho side of a
clilV and loses itsell in the interior uf
the mountain. It was discovered by
Charles Dcut'chmau and bus attraced
a great deal of attention from geologists and scientists. During tlie 4ci-
000 years it iB supposed to have been
running in its present courBe it has
scooped out the most fantastic curves
imaginable, some of then being in
pure marble of the most beautiful
oolors and markings,
The Bow River also loses itstlf for a
while, and reappeais lar below the
the point of disappearance. Explorers
through the interior constantly come
across email streams which have a
lashion of ducking into tbe ground
and reappearing again.

consist uf loose sands and gravels,

does, in tlie shape of it natural rock

LEGAL PACKAGES
Maxwell Smith on Grading and
Packing B. C. Fruit.
"The Dominion government regulations regarding tlie legal packing of
fruit, the grading and marking, will
be enforced during tne coining season
with perhaps more firmness than at
any time heretofore,' announces with
emphasis Maxwell Smith, the Dominion fruit inspector. Ignorance will
no more be regarded as un evcuse for
disregard of the regulations and all
ihn-o having the best interests ul the
fruit industry at heart will doubtless
co-operate witb the government oftic
i ils in this work."
Witb regard to the suitability of the
weather now at the opening of tho
season it may sound paradoxical tu
sty that Mr. Smith is well pleased
witb the weather and yet is sitting in
trembling of it. His fear is not that
it will get colder, but that it will get
brighter and then colder. "While
tlio every day citizen is bemoaning
tho backward spring," he says, "1 am
pleased to death because every day of
! this kind of weather makes our fruit
I crop safer. ThiB cool spell is just
i » hat we want. It is keeping back the
huda bo that there is no danger of s
la e frost damaging the blossoms."

Chief Festival of Christian Year
Duly Observed.
Once again the joyful season of
springtide is here and Easter Sunday
one of the most beautiful of the great
festivals of the church, has dawned
Easter morning broke over the city on '
Sunday dull and cloudy with sting of
rain in the air and far from what
could be termed ideal Easter weather.
To the feast of our risen Lord there
comeB coincidentally the rebirth of
nature and we greet the symbols of the
Resurrection in bud"ar.d blade, in the
bluing skies and all that goes to make
up the sum of a sweet spring morning.
As we wish one another "a happy
Easter" there is a two-fold joy in our
hearts, joy that we celebrate in the
services of praise and thtnkagiving for
the fulfillment of the promise of eternal salvation, sealed to all mankind on
that first great EaBter day and joy in
the gladness of the reborn world in
which the glory of the green things
growing beats in the pulse of the
universe. In spite of the unpropitions
elements, the church going Revelstoke
turned out in Urge numbers to the
various places of worship where special
Easter music and services had been
arranged. As is customary at Easter
the ladies usually don their new spring
creatious in millinery and gowns, and
the display this year would have been
well up to tbe mark, had the weather
so permitted it.
The afternoon was bright and fine
and a large number of residents turned
out to take advantage of the sun.
Easter is the most impoitant of all
church festivals, and whatever beliefs
and systems of philosophy may rise
and fall, the religious belief of humanity must forever centre on the personality of Jesus Christ, hiB life and
teaching. There have been many
religions before the birth of Christ
and many since, and there arc many
today, but no other word since man
first found or voice s comparable with
that message conveyed in the life and
death of Christ twenty centuries ago.
His science and His philosophy are
disputed and criticized, but no enemy
can cavil at the purity and nobility of
Hit Gospel of love and iieucc. Many
have and do yet, deny the incarnation
and atonement as parts of a devine
plan and even the resurieclion as a
historical fact Judged even by the
standard of visible nssults the belief ill
the Divinity nf Christ and his resurrection have more powerfully affected
the history I f Ihe human race than
the sum of all other events since
creation It is conceded now by philosophers ol all schools, that not only
the progress, but the survival   of   the
race depends on tbe force nf tlie moral
law. that the moral law derives its
only sanction from belief in God, and
that belief is   founded   ebielly,    if not
i       i. t'u- teaching ol Christ.

NEW MARRIAGE REGULATIONS
Father . Jan   Explains  Laws
Governing Catholic Unions
Rev. Father Jun at St. Mary's
church recently made special reference to the new marriage regulations
which go into effect at once in the
Catholic church, says Mot.diy's Calgary Herald. Engagements after this
date must be in writing Parties
wishing to become engaged must sign
tlie prenuptial contract, and have the
bishop or their pastor witness it. In
the absence of the bishop or priest,
two witnesses must sign the engage,
ment. If one or both uf those to be
engaged cannot write, this should be
noted and three lay witnesses must
sign the engagement in the absence ol
tbe priest or the bishop.
Every bishop or administrator of a
diocese can validly marry in bia own
diocese any parties irrespective of the
country or place whence they come.
The bishop outside his diocese and the
pastor outside his limits cannot marry
their own or other subjects without
due authorization. Marriages before
a suspended or excommunicated priest
or before a minister or civil magistrate
whether both parties are baptized
Catholics or not, are no marriages ut
all. Marriage cf a Catholic to a non-
baptized person is never a real marriage unless the church grants a
dispensation. Sucii a marriage before
a J. P. is iio marriage (or two reasons
Marriage ol a Protestant (provided
they never were baptized in the Catholic church) iB valid as a life-long
contract. There will be no marriage
at all unless there be two witnesses—
one witness with the priest will not
suffice—and the contracting parties
should secure before hand their baptismal certificates.
If for an entire month parlies cannot secure bishop, parish priestor any
priest appointed hy either of these,
they may in the presence ol two
witnessi-sOhere is no marriage if there
he not two witnesses) declare their
consent to marry. 'I hey are then in
the eyes of the Catholic ohurch
married As soon after the marriage
as possible they should send their
names to the parish priest for registration ami do whatever is lequiieil to
Conform lo the legal laws ul the country
Kev Father lull laid special emphasis on the rule laid down that
nixed marriages are not countenanced by the church, and the offspring
are cntisiilerrd  illegitimate.
Wild Cat Mines.
Hern is something pretty good
which sppSSred in the last issue ol the
Mining and Hniontilic Press:
"Protests are made occasionally
against attacks upon wild cats because
forsooth, it is asserted that many a
pio.pi i'i, which seemed a wild cat, has
developed Into a spleodtd mini.    The
classification is mistaken. A young
mine, no matter how young and un-
promising, is DOt noccss.irily a wild
cat, if it is an honest enterpri.e. It is
a kitten. Let us distinguish between
the domestic, useful, and well behaved
pe'. und the fierce leline of the wilds.
In ie ire wild cats and wild cats; apparently, the king beast of his kind is

Methodist High Tea
The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist
church held a very successful high
tea on Monday evening in the church,
and judging by the large crowds that
surged round the table from 5 till 8
p. m., the good things provid d must
have been highly appreciated. Tbe
viands were choice and plentiful and
all who attended testified to the excellence of tbe delicacies so temptingly and lavishly displayed. Vases of
beautiful Easter flowers graced the
tables while c indelabras, silver, glass
and greenery made a charming pic
turc. An excellent musical program
was provided which greatly added to
the enjoyment of the evening. The
ladies of the Methodist church are to
be congratulated on the excellence ol
their culinary abilities and there were
few win did not come away " (ull " o'
praise for the admirable tea  provided
Fraternal Orders
That luan, in the nature of things
must have some place where he aod
his fellows may congregate (or rocre
ation and instruction, where toil aud
business cares may be cast aside for
an evening of pleasure and social di
vertisement take their place, is a rec
ngiiized fact. The lodge offers one of
the best solutions of this question, as
is evidence by the many orders that
have sprung up in the country and in
Revelstoke in particular, all ol which
have in their rituals teachings that
have lieen important factors in the
educational and moral development ol
the people. Harmony among man
kind, male and female, should be cul
tivated, and as lar as the limner are
concerned the lodge cultivates this
most necessary qualification in acorn
muiiity.
