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." lt is made over stylish
foot-conforming lasts and tits 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."

THE RIVERS TOLL
Corpse Reappears After Five
Month's Immersion.
Coroner Cross held   nu   inquest   on
Thursday evening in tbs city goal on
the body of one   Edward   Rice,   which
was picked up uu Thursday morning
near the farther end of the dam on
the upper side, hall in and half out of
the water. The discovery was made
by Eric Coursier Thursday morning
while walking out along the dam
where the steamer Kevelstoke is discharging rock, and was cuiiiiiinnicateil
immediately to the police who turned
the matter over to the provincial constable. Tho body, which was in an
advanced stste of decomposition, was
brought ashore and taken to Howson's
undertaking parlors. The evidence
showed that the deceased was known
iu Revelstoke and had worked in Mr.
Astle's gang on the new C. P. R. Columbia bridge here and laid off a few
days before he dissappeared, which
took place on Thursday, November 7,
1907. Further identification was made
by the peculiar crook of an arm which
was noticed by all who saw him last.
It appears that the deceased on the
day of his death last November had
been drinking heavily and was seen on
tbe bridge in au intoxicated condition
and was afterwards missed, and it was
supposed at the time that he overbalanced and loll into the river, although
there was no witness to prove it. In
all probability the unfortunate man
did fall into the river and lay drowned
undisturbed until tbe steamer RevelBtoke commenced operations and
churned the body up. Evidence proved
that the deceased was alive up till November the 7th, when the accident
occurred. The jury returned a verdict
identifying the body as tbat ol Edward
Riee, who came to his death from unknown causes. The remains were
buried yesterday.
BRIDGE COLLAPSED
Miraculous Escape of Engine
Crew and Passengers
Rossland, April 24.—An engine,
tender, flat freight oar and a box car,
attached to tbe passenger train, plunged through the first twin bridge across
Sheep Creek a short distance north ol
Sbeep Creek Falls on Monday morning
at 10:30 o'clock, carrying down with
them J. Golipbon, tbe engineer, and
J. Ulsen, the fireman. They escupid
from the wreck by swimming, but the
fireman sustained a broken leg and
other injuries, while tbe engineer was
severely bruised and shaken np.
The engine had only,' about its
weight on the structure, when it went
through snd stuck the opposite bank,
but was submerged all but tbe top of
the smokestack. A flat car was piled
on top of the engine so that the front
end touched its boiler. A box car, in
turn, piled on top of this flat car for
about half its length, with its rear end
resting on tbe bank of tbe creek opposite to tbat against which the front
of tbe engine lay. The remainder of
tbe train remained on the rails.
Engineer Golipbon and Freman 01-
sen went down into the wild waters of
the creek with the locomotive, and
how they escaped from the wreckage
is notliitlg abort of miiaculoue. They
felt their way from under the list car
and   managed   to   reaih   tlie surface.
Sheep Creek is a mad torrent Irom
being gorged with water from the
melting snow, and tbis weakened the
underpinning of the bridge to such an
extent that it gave way under the
weight of the train.
Ileyond a shaking up, the passengers
were unhurt. Had the train not been
going at a slow aate, it is probable
that there would have lieen a number
ol fatalities,
Some Hat
Evebett, April 24.—Everett claims
lo have tbe obampion sine Merry
Widow bat. Tbe hat measures three
and a quarter feet Irom stem to stem
and bas a depth of nineteen inches.
A prise was offered by a local confectioner lor the hat coming nearest
to stioking in the doorway ol his establishment, and tbe wonderlul piece
ol headgear relerred to in the (ore-
going won by a noes, snd the winner
put the box ol chocolates under her
arm and walked down tbe street.
Another Little War
Simla, April 24.—A mixed lorce of
British and Indian troops is at pres
«nt being rapidly moboliied lor an
other punitive expedition against the
tribes who recently have been raiding
and looting villages on tbeir border.
Ten thousand Mohmonds are gathered

DESPERATE PRISONER
Sensational Escape from Trail
City Goal.
George Torney made hia escape from
tbe city lockup at Trail io reeular
sensational dime novel style on Saturday evening, says the Rossland Miner.
He locked the policeman in tbe
kitchen, got out through tbe odice,
and, while on bis way to liberty, he
made a young lady dismount Irom a
horse she was riding and mounting
tbe steed was soon on tbe other side
ol tbe boundary line. Tbere was only
one charge against bim belore, but
now be will be compelled to face two
others, jail breaking and horse stealing, when be is captured.
Torney was examined and committed to Nelson on Saturday to stand
trial at the assises (or disposing ol bis
property to defraud bis creditors.
LIMERICK
CONTEST
Successful Issue—Winners Announced at Thursday Night's
Concert — Some Creditable
Answers
The Limerick contest, held under
the auspices of the Rovelsloke cricket,
club and whioh has beeu running for a
long while, was closed on Easter Monday and the work ol judging left to
the committee This committee was
composed of Mesdaines It. N. Doyle,
J. T. Teller, Miss Foote, nnil Messrs.
E. M. Cook, C. M. Field, 0. R. Mao-
donald, and W. Bews. A careful
scrutiny of the 111 competition sheets
sent in occupied nearly 5 hours on
Wednesday, there being 273 acparatu
limericks to choose from. Over 200
sheets were sold but half o! that number were not returned. Thirty-seven
competition sheets weie sent in from
outside points, some being received
from Edinburgh, (Scotland) Preston,
(England) Calgary, Notch Hill, Salmon Arm, Shuswap, Sioamou., Enderby, Armstrong, Vernon, Albert Canyon and Gl.icier. At a oonoert held
Thursday night in Selkirk Hull the
prize winners were announced, The
room was crowded with an appreciative audience who heartily applauded
the sweet singing of Mis Bews, the
rich contralto of Miss bor.len, and the
st'Ong soprano of Miss Leonard, aided
by th - helpful accompaniment of Miss
Creighton. Messrs. C. F. Norris, W
W. Lefeaux, and W. H. Humphreys
added to the concert, while the moving pictures by Mr. North and piano
music by Mr. Veith made up an interesting and pleasing entertainment.
The following succeeded in winning
prizes:
1st prize, Mrs. C. J. Aman, her last
lines being:
Now its long like the tail of his mare.
She can .   pose  for  the   new fashion
plate.
A Scotchman bad just made a pun.
2nd prize, winner unknown:
And a swear that was rare rent the air.
But the joy of ber rival is great,
As he won witb the one tbat he run.
3rd prize, won by a competitor from
Salmon Arm:
And he left him with two bits to spare.
For her language seemed quite second
rate.
But tbat stroke didn't get him a tun
Mrs. B. R. Blacklock, of Preston,
England, takes fourth prize. Other
prizes were won by Mrs. Keays, C. J.
Aman, B. R. Blacklock, W. E. Stewart, Mrs. R. Gordon, B. It. Atkius,
Miss Edna Bruce, Mrs. 11. Cunningham Morris. The special prize (or
tbe best line of all was contributed by
B. R. Atkins aud reads (in the second
Limerick) "Broken limb, doctor in,
amputate." The limerick's first four
lines are so well known that they
need no mention. Holders of winning numbers who havo not yet
claimed their prizes are requested to
see W. H. Humphreys and have their
duplicate sheets with them, when the
prizes will ibe bunded out, or a certifi-
cute given them tu take to the merchant who is presenting the prize, if
that prize is any article from the
store. Claims have nut yet been made
hy the following winning numbers:—
42(S, 214, 69, 273, 110, 220.478,216,
414. The judging committee had a
hard task to decide upon the merits of
the limericks and carried out their
work to the satisfaction of nil although
the first few prize winners, in our
opinion, were no more deserving of
credit than some of the others.
On beliulf of the club, thanks were
tendered to the merchants who made
this interesting competition possible,
to Mr. H. Cunningham Morris who
prepared the Limericks, to the members of the adjudicating committee,
who hod the most difficult tssk in the
competition; to Mr. Quinn, who had
personally sold more than 50 contest
sheets; and to the ladies and men who
had treated those present to that excellent concert and moving picture
entertainment. The whole effort has
materially assisted the funds of the
Kevelstoke cricket club, and although
it has entailed a lot of work tbe promoters are to be heartily congratulated on its success.
Some other replies to the (list Limerick were:—
And tbat earmark  makes others beware.
And he's still under surgical care
When his ear-splitting yells filled the
air.
He's   bald   now, 'twas oaused by that
scare.
Which was nicknamed "tbe out mili-
taire."
And his will mudc a barber his heir.
Now   he's  gone where there's nu purling there.
And now he's a subject for prayer.
Then his   girl   cut   him   dead with a
stare.
Decidedly spoiling the pair.
And tu hear with he's nothing to spare,
To thu second Limurick:—
And she'.',   not  used  11 chair much of
late.
For   'twas   whispered   "she   couldn't
walk straight."
For her stocking wus not like its mute.
Alus, she bought rubbers too lutu.
For 11 spruiiied ankle niters her gait.
For they  curried her home in u crate.
For her friends all this story relate.
Shu   i-   crooked, where   once she wns
straight.
But the sequel's too sod to relate.
But the small  buy, he  thought it was
great.
One limb she is trying to mute.
Her fiance saw her in this slate.
As it ended a sweet tete-a-tete.
She is side-tracked like any old freight.
When she thinks of the fall of naught-
eight.
At having an old fashioned skate.
Lest her spring hat should not be 011
straight.
For   her  rivals   just   laughed at her
state.
To the third Limerick:—
When the   home club played Vernon
aud won.
When he rallied, the   game was done.
When I lirown out wtiile stealing u run.
Now with fun in the sun he is done.
It was easier than making a run.
Shady   games   he   now  plays for tbe
"mun."
From tbe effort of making 11-ruii.
So the doctors came up on the run.
Stopped for water (on brain) in his run.
As he finished his twenty-third run.
Yet "all in," was "out (or a run."
And umpire, for water, yelled run.
The first   limerick   contest  held in
Revelstoke   has   thus ended, and the
only contented ones amongst the competitors will be those that won.   But
that is only human nature.
"01 all aad words ol tongue or pen
Tbe saddest are these: it might bave
been."

MIXED  MARRIAGES.
Tht :-.-uing of tli- encyclical of
the   Pope   dealing   with   ' iiiixeJ
marriage-,'"  which  has  now  gone
into force, Joes away with a cusl th
obtaining  for   some   centuries   of
granting'lirjsen^ation  to  menibt •
of  the Roman   Catholic   faith   desiring union with   tliose   of   other
communions.    It pronounces "null
and   void1'   marriages   of   R.jtiian
Catholic-   consummated   by    civil
authority ar  solemnized   !>_>    Protestant     clergy.        The      K iman
Catholic church is to be commended
f r ii-   unchanging   attitude   with
regard  to  the solemnity  ai. I   re-
ipODsibilit)   of   the marriage  tie,
and   doubtless   it   realizes   that   if
I'lii-uri-   tIn-   maiatenance    of   its
position it must insist on the right
to a   rigid   celebration ol what it
considers a  holy sacrament,    For
every denominationmarriagi is not
accepted with the .-.ense of solemnity
and   importance   with   which this
most binding of all ties-  should   be
treated.    We regret that the "i.v r-
riages-made-in-Heaven" sentiment
is not more  fully   recognized   and
carried   out in   practice,  and   this
state is entered into,   without   du
thought and consideration   and oi
what it means and holds, by many
who will inevitably come  to  treat
it with ecorn and regret.   The   religious   eide  of marriage  is taken
lese account of than thewordly and
conventional,   and   the   encyclical

mind, hopes to in a measure creitc

MORE WORK, LESS TALK     |
Tuns far no real stop bus been
taken in the matter of urrniigiiigl
for tho inauguration of an annual \
full fair in Revelstolu'. Wu have
now an Agricultural Sooiety, in
niuiu' only, ul present, uml if anything is in be done ibis year it is
high time lhat ofHcurs and committees were appointed and some
tangible work done in connection
with what will undoubtedly be a
valuable institution lo the oily, an
well as a moans ol still further advertising our possibilities ns an
agricultural and Iruit growing
centre We Badly regret lho apparent apathy ol Revelstoke citizens
in public matters such as these.
At the lirst inception of any movement that may appear popular
and after the first burst of public
sentiment, and the novelty of the
idea has worn off, all interest is
lost and even the ollic irs elected to
do the work and the committees
appointed to assist them, go on day
after day forgetful o.' wh. t they
are elected to du and heedless of
whnt is expected of them. Revelstoke can be likened to i rocket in
the matter of carrying out public
progressive movements — a loud
and noisy burst of onthusiaiu, a
streak of interest as the movement
is first *Vorked upon, a final explosion either of internal friction
or the semblance of a rally and
thelinale—down conies the stick.
Revelstoke lacks the necessary
ability and Btamina of carrying to
a successful issue anything she
undertakes. The average business
man is too wrapped up in the folds
ot hit own private business and in
scheming how he may increase his
own dollars ini-tead of devoting a
little ol his brains, time and energy
for the good of his home city, except when he sees a chance of
benefitting himself by effecting
the success of a public issue. We
are all too prone to forget that by
strict attention to the public life of
the city, we shall each one of us
reap a benefit which will in turn
effect the whole community, We
want our agricultural resources
advertised, we want settlers to
locate here, but if we are to have
any success in that direction it behoves us to get busy and prove to
them that it will be worth their
while to come here. There is no
use forming societies, engineering
schemes and working out progressive movements—on paper—or
by talking, unless we intend carrying them to son a practical end.
Apathy and indifference characterizes tbe attitude of our citizens
in these things, and whatever is
worth doing at all N worth doing
well. It is about time that Revelstoke roused herself, and quit
harping on dull times and endeavor to do some work instead of I variou
talking and squabling over petty j aspec -
trities, for if we ever hope to succeed as a city, we will have to g«t
down to solid hard work, with a
public, not with i mean, «nial!
minded -pint.

Valuable and Interesting Publication on Red Metal.
Volume VII, of the new edition of
the Copper Handbook, has just been
issued by the author, Horace J.
Stevens of Houghton, Michigan. The
book haB 1228 pages, octavo, brevier
type being materially larger than before. The author apologizes for his
inability to revise the book through-
ot t, explaining that tire, sickness, at d
loss of five months time prevented,
i'tit the new volume contains about
180,000 words of new matter, equal in
length to three ordinary works of
lie tion, in addition to the matter remaining unchanged from the pie
ceding issue.
The new edition of the C.spper
Handbook contains 25 c apters, an
incriase of nine, treating of copper
under the headings of history, geology,
chemistry, mineralogy, mining, milling, concentrating, hydrometallurgy,
pyrometallurgy, electrometallurgy, alloys, brands, grades, uses, substitutes,
terminology, geography, copper deposits, copper mines and statistics.
Tlie treatment given the subject in
1228 pages is encyclopaedic in scope,
but the logical and orderly arrangement of the great mass oi tlie facts
presented, coupled with a table of
oontents, full index and alphabetical
arrangement of districts, countrhs,
mines, minerals and glossary, render
it possible to ascertain any given fact
with almost as much ease as a word is
found in a dictionary. This is a point
of much value to readers that h-.B been
overlooked in many otherwise excellent works of reference.
The Copper Handbook is not in
tended to replace other works for the
Use of technical men, out it does sup
pli-nient all other technical books on
copper, while fur lhe average reader its
hundreds of pages devoted to the
sci.-ntilic and technical features of the
subject will be found to cover ivery
point ol interest,

TIMBER
CRUISING
Arduous and Responsible Undertaking British Columbia's
Forest Resources—Fire Pro-
tion Essential.
There are about two bundled professional timber cruisers in British
Columbia at ptesent.says the Western
Canada Lumberman. All of them
were busy during the seiiBon when the
demttnd fur timber wns at its height
At present there are few of them Unit
cun get anything to do The dull
lumber season and the fuel that it
reserve haa been placed on government
timber has made what was one time a
profitable  culling  ii   rather perilous
one to follow lur a living,
The regular ohnrge ol u responsible
timber cruiser is Iflll a day anil a good
cruiser bus a very responsible nnd ii
very iiiii runs position, The temptations are great and it is said some are
not strong enough to resist them.
This is why a reputable timber cruiser
is so sought after nnd why he is able
to command big puy. Should a seller
wish to misrepresent timber limits to
a prospective buyer for the purpose of
getting a higher price for those limits
than tbey should comman, he can, it
is alleged, secure the services of a
cruiser who will for $1,000 make a
report to the effect that in six sections
the timber will run say  h million feet
on the Hut, iir. These valleys run up
into glaciers. On Knight's I nlet cedar
predominates, It Is found in hunches
all jver tlie low IhikIs. It is found,
however, that there are a large number of trees which nre do id at the top,
and that dry rot is slowly spreading
through the trunk. The probable
reason for this is that the routs have
not got sufficient oui'th to give tlie
tree proper vitality. The tree starting
in a few inches uf ground, above rook,
spreads its roots fur and wide in
search of uulliciont. sustenance, and
thus when the trees are near together
their roots cross and intercross, and
the scant soil bus not sufficient nourishment to provide tli in all with
vigorous lifo.
A ccrtnin cuterpillur is mi id to help
out the destruction of the tree by at
tucking the top nf  the tree where it is
first affected and drinking the sup as
it rises up lo the Uee in spring. Trees
are dying of old sgo all over Urit.i«li
Columbia, but this is true of trees in
l'il|sel Sound its well as here. In sec
tioiis where the timber would go
30,000 to the acre ten ypsrs ago, it
will now only go 15,000 to the acre
The timber up north cannot lie com
pared to the timber now out down
which grew up on Burrard Inlet,
False Creek and the Fraser Hiver.
The further uorth one goes the poorer
it gels, and cruisers long ago came to
the conclusion that the old established
mills have today the crrum of the
timber in British Columbia

to the mile, while in fact he knows
tbat in two ot the sections it will not
run ball that. To tbe initiated it is
an easy matter to invite the prospective buyer to view the limits and lead
bim over wearisome miles in such a
way tbat he is always in good timber
but never in bad timber. It is a fact
that there are timber cruisers in British Columbia who have grown rich,
but not out of their cruising fees. To
the' credit of British Columbia, the
cruisers generally in the province have
a reputation for honesty, and it is fur
this reason that there so many sterling good fellows in the business,
whose word, are as good as their
bonds, for in cruising honesty is the
stock in trade.
Over nnd over again it is said Eastern men have been deceived by buying
tracts of timber in the belief that il
one section was c.irefully surveyed and
proved good, ull adjoining sections
would be equally as good. Eastern
men are not so keen after British
Columbia timber as they used to be,
and thus there is not the same work
to do for tinier cruisers. It is not
cruis'd close enough. Sufficiently
exact reports are not given One
cruiser informed the writer that he
was recently sent to cruise timber,
and he found one section consisted of
a lake nnd another section of eternal
snow 2,400 leet above the sea.
Mountains of timber is literally correct in British Columbia.     The mar-
noticed that a great deal of this timber is rotten at the heart. Hemlock
has been permitted to rot in the
woods as it is not used in Bri'ish Columbia. In the United States, however, it is sold for $12 and $14, and is
abundantly supplied to the Panama
construction. It is sad to think of
ihe waste of hemlock here. It would
strike the casual observer that the
government should permit the export
of a wood not used in this country,
but in great demand in Panama, for
the reason that the white aot which
takes the place nf our ubiquitous lore-
do iu British Columbia will not attack
hemlock. Hemlock is a splendid
wearing wood in water, and is used for
piling. It wears well when alwuys
wet ur always dry but Cannot stand
the change oi these elements.
Cruisers say that by the reserving uf
government timber exploration bus
been stopped. There is one instance
where one linn alone deposited $200,-
000 in u bank in Vancouver to be
spent, on exploration, When the re
serve was put on, very large comprehensive plans had been arranged for
extensive exploration uf timber thru'-
out the country; thesu explorations
hnve, of course, been slopped, for it is
no use exploring timber if it cannot
be licensed. License holders will lose

A pleasing event, yet one which is
attended witb general regret, took

after choir praolice, when Miss Nelli-
Grant was presented with a handsome
set of Crown Derby china from the
Knox church choir and friends and
Amateur Dramatic club, and also
with a rich cut glass comport
from the members nf the Sunday
school, on the occu.iion of her departure from Re.elsioke. The evening
was pleasantly spent with music and
refreshments. Addresses were^ten-
dercd to Miss Grant by Miss White,
Rev. J. R. Robertson and R. N. Doyle
on behalf of the choir and Sunday
school, expressing tbeir genuine regret
ut her depuiture, and recognizing the
loss from the choir of which she bas
been a faithful aud helpful member.
Mr. Robertson and Mr. Lawrence
made appropriate addresses. Miss
Grant in thanking them all for their
kindness, expressed her sorrow at
leaving Revelstoke and her friends. A
pleasant and sociable evening was
brought to a close by the singing of
"Auld Lung Syne." Miss Grant, who
has made a large circle of friends in
Revelstoke during her visit will be
greatly missed, especially in the Knox
church choir and Dramatic Club, of
which she bus been a zealous member,
and the good wishes of all with whom
she came in contact here will go with
her for bur future happiness.
