Danoing hai ever been a popular
anuiieme.it in Revelitoke, and iti
devotees cm be numbered slmoit by
hundreds. An evidence of thil was to
be seen on Wednesday night last when
a dance was given hy the Ladies Hospital Guild and the Independent Band
in the Opera House, The small lee
charged had the desired effect tnd
a large throng assembled to tread
measure to the etrai.is ot the band,
which ii at all times noted lor iti
excellent dance music. Being strictly
shirtwaist, the ladies had no opportunity of donning the elegant and handsome ball gowni, so dear to the fair
sex, but in spite ol that the latest
faihiom and creation! in waists were
worn, some being particularly dainty
and oharming, and the scene was full
of life and oolor. An excellent eupper
was provided and nothing was to be
desired to make the whole evening
a success liminc.ally and socially.

Successful Production of the
Popular Musical Drama by
Revelstoke Amateurs — A
Bumper House,
Revelstoke has always been noted
(or her dramatic and musical talent
and the production of the famous cantata, "Jephtbah's Daughter" last night
in tbe opera house by local artists has
established further this well deserved
reputation. Kilty Indies and "t-ntle-
uicn wire requind to produce litis
well known drama and Irum start to
finish the audience could feel the wild,
yet picturesque breath of the ancient
Israelites and their Bemi-t.arharous
life, brought out in the grand yet
sweet music in which it is produced.
The house was packed evincing the
popularity of local talent.
The story, is so well known that
there ia no need Ior repeating it; suffice
it to say that each act and scene in
this great ancient tragedy was cae
fully and well curried out. Tl.e chorus
of soldiers iu Act 1, Scene 2, was par-
ticularly striking, thc quiet yet solemn drill in preparation Ior battle
being well executed. The duet by
Naomi and Eloni (Miss Borden and
R. Tuggart) in tbe battle field scene
was pathetic and effective. Act 2
showel the Jewish maidens upon the
mountains awaiting tlie return ol
Jephthah and bis victorious army, the
chorus and dancing being quaint yet
charmingly picturesque. Ipbigenia
(Mrs, Squarebriggs) offers praises and
thanks for Israel's deliverance, but is
out short by the appearance ol Jephthah, who gives way to utter remorse
on teeing his daughter and remembering his vow. The trio "Have Mercy,'
by Jephthah, Iphigenia and Adah,
wai touching and impressive, the act
being brought to a close by the chorus,
reminding Jephthah ol the fulfilment
of hit vow. The funeral march, solemn and grand led up to the sacrifice,
and Iphigenia, in a touching and
pathetic appeal, clad in sacrificial
garb, urges her father to the
act which will offer her as a sacrifice
to God in fulfillment of his rash vow.
Her song "Now Slowly. Sinks My Setting Sun," was perhaps the finest
number in the whole production, the
utter abandoment ol the doomed virgin being powerfully portrayed by
Iphigenia. The grind finale "Never
More" rolling upward in' rich, yet
iweet harmony over the funeral bier
of the slain heroine, made a grand yet
sad ending to this powerful and
strangely realisticdra.ua.
Such a work has been ra.ely produced in Revelitoke and we feel that
each and all who took part in it did
their work conscientiously and endeavored to portray the characteristics
ol that period, in solemn hymns of
praiie, iu joyful dance and chants ol
sorrow. The caste was well sustained.
Ed. Allum as Jephthah, could nut be
improved upon, his acting and singing doing him great credit. W. M.
Lawrence, as the prophet, was creditable, while the princes and Jewiih
maidens left nothing to be desired.
Adah (Mn. Creelman) carried out well
a somewhat difficult role as Iriend of
Iphigenia, her work being conscientiously done.
Ai Iphigenia, Mn. Squarebriggs was
an unqualified auccess, her whole
demeanor and personality being excellent, In her several soloi, the fully
cirried out tbe difficult talk allotted
her, from the joyful daughter of a
victorious chief to the sorrowing,
mourning victim for sacrilic, through
human lolly. Mrs. Squarebriggs must
be congratulated on her rendering ol
her role and as an amateur is certainly talented in dramatic work.
The choruses, both male and le.iu.le,
were good, and were rendered in a
creditable manner, although they
lacked precision in picking up cues, at

Advance in Wages—Hyman's
Resignation—C.P.R. Confiscate Coal—A Lumber Combine Exists.
Rossi.akb, April 20.—A conlerence
ol mine managers has decided to advance wages 25 cents per day Irom 1st
May. This applieB to shovelers, carmen, ore workers and all employed on
the surface.
Ottawa, April 20 —Finance Minister Fielding received a telegram (rom
I ly miii) Hating tbat he had forwarded
his resignation Irom London.
Winnipeg, April 18.—The C. P. R.
loday confiscated all commercial coal
in transit Irom western mines as a precautionary measure against the shortage in case of a strike.
Ottawa, April 20.—The special
committee investigating the conditions of Ihe lumber trade will report
tomorrow. The committee is unanimously agreed and will report to the
House that there is a combine in
connection with the retailers' association and also wilh the manufacturers'
association, and that the result ia an
excessive high price of lumber. The
committee makes no recommendations.
Cai.gakv, April 20.—It is reported
here that it ia tl.e C. P. R. that is
making most vigorous efforts to settle
the difficulty between mine operators
and men.
Coal Strike General-Conference Will be Held Next Week
Fernik, B. C, April 19.-The
district officers of the United Mine
Workers of America and the operators will hold a conlerence in
Fernie on Tuesday, April 23. District President Sherman is confident ol an early lettlement of the
trouble and there is a prospect
that the mines will be working
within the next ten days. The
labor situation, however, is still
serious. All the miners are now
quitting work. Not a man is
working and all the camps are
idle. The action of the Alberta
government in refusing to institute
proceedings against the management at Taber, when the men were
refused work, except on a ten-hour
basis, in face of tbe fact that a
written agreement to an 8-hour day
came into effect on the first of
April, had made a very bad impression on the men, when the
posting of noticeB by the Crow's
Nest Company, to the effect that a
reduced scale of wagei would go
into effect on the 10th of May, to
last for three years, made it impossible to hold them and they
began to quit individually, until
now all the miners at the three
largest camps, nearly two-thirds of
all the men in the district are idle
and declare they will go to jail in
preference to submitting to Buch
injustice. The statement that the
men in these mines made on an
average of $1,500 per year under
the present rate of wages is untrue,
and does not mend the situation.
There was a meeting of the operators and members of the district
board here yi Bterday. but nothing
of what transpired has been mado
public. Another meeting of the
district board will be held next

The orchestra carried out their part
well, although they lacked tbe dash

$5,000,000 in Debentures taken
at 4 per cent in London.
Montrkai., April 18.-C. M. Hays,
president and general manager ol the
Grand Trunk Pacific has arrived in
Montreal trom Europe. Mr. Hays
states that the Grand Trunk Pacilic
issued 1116,000,000 debentures, and they
had been able to issue them at 4 per
cent, in London whilo other corporations were paying as high as 6 per
cent, lor their monoy, Another interesting point was that 70 per cent, ol
these debentures had been taken out
by old shareholders. ABked as to what
would bo done with the money. Mr.
Hays stated that it was going into
rolling stock, Already the Grand
Trunk Pacilic owns 2,500 cars, which
at the present time wero being utilized
by tho Grand Trunk and whioh latter
would bc turned ovor to the Grand

Mattrass Nearly Finished-
Breach in Dam to be Repaired
-A Small Accident Which
Might have been Worse.
Residents as well aa visitors can
spend a profitable and instructively
interesting day by visiting the work
now being curried on by the Dominion
and Provincial governmenta, on protecting Ihe river lank and changing
the course of lhe Columbia by the
C'lii-tructif.ii of a dam. l'his latter
work is so well known to all that
description is unnecessary, but since
tbo ui.fortunate accident which happened Inst week, and which waa unavoidable, public opinion has been rife
concerning the causes and probable
resulls, and it is only right that a
correct idea of what did happen be
given. Just prior to the morning of
the accident the dam had been closed,
but only a small quantity ol rock bud
been put in, leaving it about less than
half full; in (act the whole dam has
been only partially filled in and
hacked up by rock. There was a head
ol nearly five feet of water on the
upper Bide of the dam and the pressure
very great, but yet not sufficient to
strain the piling even to an eight of
an inch. A large field of floe ice
comes floating down the current
travelling at a rate of about four feet
a second, the enormous bulk of which
would weigh hundreds ot thousands of
toiiB. The first impact did no damage, tbe second forced the piling over
to a considerable angle, unprotected as
it was by rock, and the last impact
coming in the shape of a wedge, snapped off the piling flush with the rock
that had been dumped round it. A
breach ol 50 leet or so was opened, and
a rapid ol about three Ieet drop now
remains, but no scouring has taken
place whatever, the brush and rock
being too securely packed on the bed
of the river to allow of even a small
amount of underwashing to take place.
The dam therefore itaell ia secure, but
the woodwork and superstructure
above of course has gone. The piling
is as firm in the river bed today as the
day it was put in, except tbat the
terrible impact snapped them off almost at the water's edge.. As regards
repairs we learn that no attempt will
be made to repair the breach until the
rest of the dam has been finished and
filled up with rock. Meanwhile a
cribbing will be constructed round the
bent snd weakened section, filled will,
rock «■ d extended whe" rosdy across
the breach, the whole forming a solid
wall o' nek and timber. Much depends on how quickly the river rises.
An additional superstructure will he
built nn to the near end ot thc dam
for a distance of about 300 feet.
Unfortunately tho w-rks wore closed
down for a moulh in the winter, op.
parently for want of funds and this
uncalled for delay is practically responsible for tbe fnct
that the dam was only half filled
with rock at the time of the accident,
This cloaing down waB extremely
detrimental to the ultimate completion ol the work and happened at a
bad time too, and it ia safe to say that
had this set back not' occurred, the
dam would have been in a position to
withstand even the mass of ice that
effected the damage last week. The
engineers are confident of permanent
repairs belore long and when it is considered how biiiuII is the break
as compared with the whole
extent of tl.e dam, it will
prove that the general construction
has heen sound and scientifically
To turn to the mattrass work now
being carried nut by the provincial
government, tho work has been going
ahead unceasingly, True, delay was
caused by a shortage ul wire, but that
hns been remedied and thc work will
ho completed within threo weeks. The
method used is that invented by Capt.
Kad, a well known engineer, and has
always proved most effective, Over
1,000 loads of briiBh, 10 tons of wire,
160,0(10 Ieet of lumbor, and thousands
ol tons of rock, have been used in itt
construction. Two sections have sunk
and tl.e remaining two will go also in
a low days. The work is in every way
satisfactory and should be successful

in In.pes that the sitiiatimi will nt
any time improve. The mills cannot go on indefinitely stacking up
lumber and if relief does not come
in the wav of car shortage the price
of logs and labor must drop for the
mills cannot get] to market with
their stock and they will not continue to manblacture, and consequently will not want logs and
logs will decline, and if logs decline
wages will decline also. It is probable thnt logs will continue to be
high in price until July or August,
and should their be no relief in the
car shortage then, with fine weather
and abundance of logs coming to
market, they could not retain their
present value. With plenty of cars
the industry would flourish, without them it will languish. Railroad lines have extended abnormally but unfortunately there has

Mr. A. C. Fluniorlclt was the lirsl.
spokesman Cf the delegation. He
pointed out thai, the lumber Industry
was already taxed as much as it co .ki
bear, and the result ot a further
increase would be that it would be
exceedingly difficult for them to
compete with American lumbermen,
who were now shipping tbeir product
into the Canadian North-West Provinces. He said, however, that the
lumbermen would be in a better
position tu stand it if there licenses
were better secured to them and
suggested that at leaBt tlie Government should allow the hi 1 to stand
over till next year, and in the meantime they could appoint a select
committee to inquire into the actual
conditions of the lumbering business
of the country.
Mr. Fulmer, Mr, Alexander, Mr,
Lindmark (Revelsloke), and Aid.
Heaps also spoke, pointing out that
owing to the shortage ol cars, business
was seriously handicapped under
present conditions anyhow, and profits
were really very small. A complaint
was made that the lumbermen of B.C.
were more heavily taxed already than
tbose of any other province in tho
Dominion and their tenure under
licences wai at tbe same time insecure.
Several |of the larger firms present
offered to throw their books open
for the inspection of the Government to show what the profits ol the
lumbering business actually weie. Thc
lumbermen all Baid they were willing
lo pay tbeir fair share ol the revenue,
but that at present the proposed increase would bear hardly upon them.
It was pointed out that owing to the
car shortage tbe lumber trade was at
present in a very depressed condition.
Tbey could not get hall the cars they
needed, and consequently were debarred Irom getting their lumber on the
North West market with the opening
of the Spring season, when there was
most need (or it. Some of the delegates said that if the increased loyalty went into operation it would practically mean the closing down of
many mills.
Tbe delegates were iinanini-iis in
asking that the bill be laid over Iur
one year, and the conditions lie investigated by the Government in the
This the Government has oons.-nted
to do. asking the House to pais the
measure in the meantime with enforcement not belore next January.

OWING to the distracted state of

few peace-loving nomads are Inclined to settle evefi fur a season
within tiie Czar's dominions, Should
curiosity or expediency compel the
step, one should, if possible, pitch the
family tent in the capital or in some
other city where the United States
Consulate and a fair sprinkling of
American residents make life moderately comfortable, because measurably
In such a city one can rent a Mat or
apartment, where the task of keeping
warm In whiter is less formidable
than in huge country houses, more
like barracks or barns than human
One's menu, also, requires less thought
in a city. In St, Petersburg, especially,
sunplles are easily obtainable, and one
may fall back on French cooking when
the national diet becomes too unspeakable for American palates.
In the country, where one is frozen in
fur months at a time, unless a housekeeper be prudent and packs away in
the underground store rooms during the
summer enormous supplies of fermented
cabbage, beets—roots and leaves-dried
or Bmoked fish, ham and meats in casks,
barrels of flour, bushels of carrots,
parsnips, turnips, potatoes, kegs of but-
ter and oil, cheese ot every description,
dried and canned fruits, and tidbits for
the "aakouska"—eatables which form
tho staple* diet of most Russians—starvation may ensue.
The servant question is likely to prove
annoying, not from overindulgence,
but because the Russian maid, being but
a generation removed from serfdom, fs

any price,
The arrangement of Russian meals
does not differ materially from thnt In
other European countries. We have tho
early breakfast of bread, coffee and ten,
and the heavier midday meal between
11 and 2, similar to our luncheon.
At this last one has a soup, hot or
cold; sour cabbage, mushrooms prepared
wllh sour cream, some sort of cold meat
or gnme, or possibly a creamed fish or
vegetable salad, or a Chopped-up meat
In cutlet, with a sauce of vinegar and
aour cream added to tiie fat In which
the ment has been fried. The mixturo
is then boiled, with a sliced herring and
sardine thrown in by wny of zest.
Then there may be curd dumplings,
a remarkable compound of rennet
curds, pastry, sour cream and eggs,
baked In a moderate oven and enten
with melted butter or with sour
cream poured over thein. Or, per-
hapft/j^o tastes "minis" for the first
time, thn Russtnn hot bread, which
enjoys as great popularity as our
buckwheat cakes,
Usually (here will be "kvns," a Russian sour soft drink, to wash down the
breakfast, or, perhaps, the fiery and
intoxicating "vodka."
The dinner hour In Russia varies
from 8 o'clock to R, nnd the meal itself Is thc most Important function of
the day.
The nostras who alms to bo truly
Russian will begin with "sakouska,"
This Is not the simple little appetizer
of caviare on toast we know in America, hul un elaborate "spread," usually
served In an unti chamber; if in the
salle a manger, at a side table, In
fuel, a stranger io tho customs of tho
laml may tind that he has unwittingly
made a full meal before he has approached the dinner table, so enticing
is the array of cold dishes, dried
fruits, cheeses, wines and liqueurs offered for his selection.
At the znkouska will bo found, besides caviare, potted and highly
spiced chicken, ham, fish, game and
thin slices uf aromatic smoked Russian ham, smoked sturgeon or dried
At thc dinner proper ono has soup
and lish. a roast and curiously prepared vegetables, a salad and dessert,
for all i*f which the preliminary appetizers have probably deprived one of
Perhaps tlie soup will be the national slchi, made of pounds of fermented cabbage, an equal amount of
cold boiled mutton, chopped together,
and boiled with twoquartsof kvas, eight
ounces of butter, concentrated soup
stock, salt. pepper, a little barley and
various hi rbs.
Then ono may have tho highly
prized roast suckling pig stuffed with
black buckwheat, hulled and boiled
like oatmeal and browned in tho oven
before it is used as stuffing. Or there
may be delicious h;ilf-grown chicken
squabs, long known In Russia and now
popular In the United States.
For an entree might be si rved Russian croutes, made of finely shredded
smoked or spiced beef, cut Into strips
ahout an inch long and n quarter of
an inch wide, and soaked for half an
hour in a little French dressing.
Cover the croutes, or blocks of fried
bread, with a slice of hard-boiled egg,
seasoned with salt and pepper, Placo
the strips of beef on the croutes and
cover with a aauce made of whipped
cream, or, better yet, sour cream, into
which grated horseradish, cayenne
pepper and a lew drops of lemon juice*
are stirred.
The famous Russian salad ol cold
boiled peas, cauliflower, potatoes cut
In strips, dice of carrots, turnips and
beans comes next in order. Sliced
raw tomatoes, chopped pickle and
trulHes arc arranged in distinct layers In a salad bowl or fill n mould
lined with jelly, Season each layer
with mayonnaise, salt and pepper,
pile the salad high in the centre,
cover with mayonnaise and garnish
with shredded salmon and beets,
olives, capers and anchovies.
After zakouskn, topped by dinner,
it might be thought tin* Russian
would survive unlll the next day
without another meal, Not he! ln

there are refreshments at 10 o'clock,

Both coffee and tea, by the way, are
delicious In Russia, even when they are
passed in great trays ut the railroad

course of the dinner io bring out choice

embarrassment of all conci rned, as the
guests dared not touch them.
The hall-fermented cabbage of Russia
Is one of the food staples. It Is dressed
in a variety of ways, and is much used
in soups. It is prepared by chopping the
cabbage, pressing it down hard In casks,
and adding a lillle salt. In a few days
it will be fermented sufficiently for the
casks to be sealed and stored away for
winter use.
Sour eieam is also to be found on
every table and is considered a delicacy
in any form in which it is used. It may
he bought in all Russian dairies.
Mushrooms, both fresh and dried, are
a national delicacy.
A curious combination i'f fermented
cabbage, sour cream and mushrooms fs
made by stewing dried mushrooms in
cold water, puurlng the liquid over sour
cabbage and boiling for fifteen minutes.
Add the chopped mushrooms and salt;
stew till thick. Add sour cream, and,
lastly, a lablespoonful of flour, browned

Asks Cure for Frostbites

re-modles, such as cold water, snow an.] ooal

1 hope you believe that had 1 known

if any reader can speak of a "certain
cure," he or she will communicate it to
me, nccompanied by a stamp fur forwarding it to the sufferer. Were I in

best specialist in such maladies that I

Before calling together tho experience
meeting Of which our very clever member spe.tkH i will answer briefly two
questions she put to myself.
I have "known u family" In which an
oxporiment similar to that proposed by
tin- philanthropist was made. Many
years ago i fitted up a room adjoining
iln- kitchen In a city house as a parlor
fur the use of my three maids. It wai
carpeted; the furniture was new and
pretty; tlie windows were curtained; u
drop Unlit bung above a centre tabic, on
which lay bonks mid magatines; the
place was warm, light and more cheerful than the kitchen, which had a northern exposure, The gift of "thfl palrlor"
was tecoiveii-noi gratefully, but gr.v
cluuslyMiud 1 was assured that it would
be a 'great Incurrldgemint" to the laborers ta my home tract. One of tne
maids was engaged to be married to a
decent young fellow, whom 1 allowed to
visit her lu the evenings. I supposed,
naturally, that tiny would take advantage of the room fur tete-a-tete talks.
In fact, I found that tbey bad actually
sat together there un twu stormy nights,
At the end of a month i learned thai
the maids preferred to gather In Ihe
old familiar kitchen when it wns "red
up" and the day's work dono. H'fcen
Ellen had her "Jo' the others sat In
tht same place and took a hand In the
talk or went off to walk. All shunned
the ' palrlor" by common consent.
When 1 inquired intu the reason,
Ellen, then In her seventh year of service—rejoined, hesitatingly: "It's all very
nice In that room, ma'am, but we girls
feel Bort of lonesome-like In there, and
the kitchen seems mure natural, somehow, Then again, there's none of our
acquaintances ns has anything uf tbo
kind, and sume of them do laugh at uh
about it. Maggie and me was sayln'
last night it was a Wonder you didn't
make a storeroom of it. b* in' more
convenient tu tlu- kitchen nor the icl-
The walls of the despised "palrlor"
were painted, and a pretty frescoed
fries** ran up to the ceiling. At the .ud
ot the second month 1 had the curpet
taken up, the curtains taken down, the
furniture stored in tin* attic and the
Looks sent to keep it company. Maggie
had the "nicest storeroom In town,'
.mil rejoiced therein.
In my country bouse l have put
forth yet more strenuous endeavors to
maki nn* mauls as comfortable (according to my standards] as myself. To this
end i had a veranda, overlooking lake
and mountain, built under the kitchen
wli di m it Is heavily draped with
honeysuckle and furnished with rock-
Ing chairs—as cozy and inviting a re-
treat as e weary woman could desire
on a summer evening or in the August
noontide when vegetables and fruits aro
to be pared Perhaps the bower is occupied, on an average, once a month
during the warm weather. Fur the rest
of the time the maids ami "followers"
prefer kitchen and laundry. i
And why not? The kitchen "seems
more natural somehow." The niche in
Which I would set them dues nut become the maids, nur do they become it.
As the learned archaeologist, i»r. Merrill, now our Consul at Jerusalem, says
of the restoration of the "aneleni people" to the Fatherland: "In a word,
the Jews are not ready for Palestine,
nor Is Palestine ready fur tlu* Jews.1'
Bo mething like this may account for
what puzzled me long and sorely Y..t
1 do my maids but partial justice in
saying that they are, uh a rule, refined
beyond thfl rank and tile Of their clasp.
They are exemplary In the discharge
of their respective duties, and have a
habit of slaying with me until thiy
marry. If Ihey do not take readily to
"pniilor" and leafy veranda, do not I

The weak point In the cuisine managed by the thrifty pair was the
1 o'clock luncheon. The retired cook

British contempt for made dishes.
The distaste ls as old as tho reign

upon luncheon as n stop-gap for ap-

This, the fourth meal of the eating

A meaty soup—sometimes rather
heavy for our taste—was succeeded in

The main defect In the average English cuisine la sameness.    We were
painfully conscious of this during a

At C o'clock P. M., England, from

they nil have leu." It Is tho hour
sacred io domostlo tranquillity and social comfort. We had tho habit before we went into lodgings, lt was
confirmed for lhe rest of our lives
by our two summers In the tight llttlu
Island. And, verily, the leas spread In

ever far we might have wandered
alleld, London ward or Into the country
rich In downs, dykes, castles nnd
historic ruins, wc were suro to bring
up nt tcntlmo In tho quiet drawing
room, nnd as sure to find the round
table, covered with a snowy cloth,
drawn to the comer of the hearth.
The Into afternoon was sometimes
chill with sea-fogs, and ln England
the least suspicion of dampness and
falling temperature Is seized upon ne
an excuse for lighting a fire. Home-
times wo came In wet, but cheerily,
for we knew whnt nwulted us. Then the
Bea-cdal was aglow In the grate; the

the cloth was hidden by plates of
thin bread und butter, sandwiches,

of hot sconos or tea c -%s shrouded

))' HIS heroic defense of Port Ar-
ihur. General Aitalok Michaeh-
rcitch Stoessel has acquired a name
which will rank' with tlmt oj the greatest
fortress-holders of modem tidies—with Gordon, of Khartoum; Ullrich, of Slrassbtirg;
Inglis, of Lucknow; Osmait, of Plevna;
White, of Lady milk, and, above all, with
Fodlehen, of Sebiislopol."
This opinion, expressed by a prominent
military authority of Europe two years ago,
seemed to be that of the world at large.
Sadly for Sloessel has tiie picture
(hanged. Now, reduced to poverty, racked
with disease, his glory vanished, his record
smirched and even his life demanded as payment for his failure to do what he declined
impossible—Io silrl, bitter dregs has he tasted
the ingratitude of his government.
There was no question, apparently, of the
limits of human endurance and daring wilh
the Russian bureaucracy that peremptorily    he mnde to suiter so?** said i.e,
demanded   Stoessel's life;   no counting of   diioiii.ing his case.

the sick in Port Arthurs shell-riddled hospitals, or of the swarming foes outside.^ The
commander surrendered—he said he did it to
prevent further useless sacrifice of life—and,
therefore, he was a traitor to the flag.
Forced out of the army, General Sloessel
has been fighting his cause before a court-
martial, convened lo determine whether the
recommendation of a court of inquiry should
be carried out. This declared lhat Pert Arthur's defender should be dismissed in disgrace and shot for surrendering.
In the meantime the unhappy man has
been compelled lo apply for public assistance   mw ^ ^ ^^ ^^ ^   ^

to Ids wounds, partly io his country's Ingratttudfa.

One would think that, even if sympathy for Sloessel
should die, there would remain in Russia some spark
of gratitude for the woman who haa become known as
"Port Arthur's guardian angel."
For one of the sweetest stories of patriotic devotion
In recent years is that of Mme. Stoessel's presence within
the beleaguered fortress all the time the Japanese
were trying to wrest It from the Russians.
From tho first moment of tho siege sho assumed
direction of the ambulance service. When, on August
'a, VM, Mme. Stoessel was struck on the shoulder by a
bursting shell, while attending a wounded soldier, and
lt was reported that she wax In dangor of death, there
wni gloom ln the garrison, which wax dissipated only
when she was discharged from the nospltal as recovered
from her wounds,
Then the soldiers knelt and kissed her garments and
even tho dust which she had walked upon. Now, In all

tnber  last.     Ostensibly,  ho quit  voluntarily,  but It Is
common knowledge In St. Petersburg that he was forced
Nowhere else in the world, perhaps, would an officer
of Stoessel's distinguished record have been summarily
and wretched tn mind, he is unable to pay
even tht'     r wage demanded.
Slow. u.ow. thou winter wind,
Thou sit not so unkind
As man's tngrntltude.-"Ai You Like It."
WHEN' the result of Russia's war with Japan
rested largely upon the wisdom and patriotism
of two nr three officers, General Stoeasol, who
hnd twice been decorated for conspicuous bravery,
whose breast was covered with medals telling of noble
■service, took hold of Port Arthur with an Iron hnnd and
declared: "1 um determined to so defend this town that
my countrymen shall have no cause to be ashamed of
Ilo la the mnn who, upon being Informed by a company of soldiers that they could no longer hold their
pout, snapped back; "But you can die, then!" Enoouraged
by ihe presence of a brave, noble wife, he held thc-grcat
strategical p>int for seven months against Buch odds
as few armies havo encountered.
And then he surrendered! Honorably and properly,
lhe world thought. So ho himself stoutly declared, fio
contending, he returned, wounded and 111, to Russia to
bo Judged,
While mankind furnishes abundant examples of that
lack of appreciation tnat "cutteth like a serpent's tooth,"
seldom has a nation been known to uso ono of her sturdy
soldiers as Russia ls using Stoessel,
It is not long since ho was spuken of as the most
powerful and umtdtlous o-llieor In the Russian army. No
uifalr In St. Petersburg social circles was complete without th« presence of Genera) and Mme, Sloessel. in tholr
pulatl.il home wero maiiy servants; they Jived as luxuriously and care-free us only favored lights In the aristocracy of the Czar's city can.
Not only waa he considered powerful, but good. All
classei trusted him. Even Kuropuikiii was nol more
highly regarded. It was lully expected in manv i-iiur-
terr Hint ll the star of the commander-in-chief of iho
army slmuld wane, Stoessel would get his place.
What Is Stoessel now? llis former associates In tho

Through it all she bore herself as courageously as her

thank you for your gallant defense," he said.
Strange, too, does It seem, after Emperor William
of Germany has decorated Sloessel for bravery at Port

to see, in the cable dispatches, Port Arthur's delen30
spoken of as lhe one glorious page, lu the hlslory of

siiow, when all ls said, a braver, more determined defense
than that now bfdng made at Port Arthur."
When General Stoessel went to Port Arthur lt was
at the earnest solicitation of General Kuropatkln, who
said to the Czar:
"Stick hlrn behind one of those breastworks, and all
tho forces of heaven and earth will not prevail against

This presentiment became a conviction later, and on
August lil, 1004, he telegraphed to a friend In Moscow;
"Farewell forever.   Fort Arthur will be my tomb."
It was In May of that year that he undertook to

For a few weeks communication with the outside
world was had, but gradually Stoessel, his army and the'
On September 20, 1004, General Kuropatkln, comman-
der-lnchlcf of tho Russian army In the East, tele-
grnphed;   "1 will go to your relief ln threo months."
Then came three months of such uncertainty as
would have discouraged almost any one. Through It all
Stoessel stood solidly upon the assertion that he would
rot give up the fort until the last of his soldiers was
dead. All proposals of capitulation from the Japanese
ha treated with contemptuous brevity.
When General Nogl and Admiral Togo united ln
demanding lhe surrender of the fortress, he treated the
summons as "a joke in bad taste."
Although referred to in Russia as a bloodless man.
Without feeling or magnetism, he earned the love of
hla soldiers during thoso terrible weeks at Port Arthur,
for they saw that he was willing to go and fight wllh
them in the trenches.
When confronted with expressions of protest on the
part of men ordered to do what seamed to them a
hopeless, as well as a fatal, task, he replied sternly:
"What I order can be done."
In response to requests for mercy In court-martial
proceedings he was wont to respond: "Carry out the
sentence; it will save lives in the eud."
"People say," wrote a correspondent at Port Arthur,
"that General Btoessel never sleeps, lor when all the city
is ln darkness a light always burns In his headquarters.'
Even when he hnd been wounded ly a shell, and
there whb no prospect of aid either from Kuropatkln
on land or Rojestvensky by sea, Stoessel continued to
bear himself aa if convinced that Port Arthur would
prove his victory garland, and not his grave.
But when the three months stipulated by General
Kuropatkln had passed and no news of the flset had
been received, the situation became desperate. The garrison wus exhausted, according to Sloes-Bel aud his
frlendH. The fieet having been destroyed and High
Mountain captured, Stoessel considered that any further prolongation of the struggle would inevitably lead
to frightful carnage.
He declares that he decided upon the capitulation
on his own authority and without consulting any one.
Returning quietly to Russia tu bo Judged for his acts
after the surrender, he said: "I might lmvo hsld out
longer, but prefer a less great name in military annals
to having 30,000 lives on mv conscience."
Those who condemn him for his act say that he
capitulated, not only on hie own volition, but against

of whom were willing to die rather than desert

soul of tbe defense cf Pert Arthur, and that when ha
died Port Arthur died with him Some of the others,
In spite of the Czar's permission, preferred captivity
under the Japanese rather than "a shameful return
to Russia with Stoessel."
Indeed, a correspondent stated that if he had not
been checked hy General Kondratenko, General Stoessel
would have surrendered several weeks before be did.
Thia s'ime correspondent said thai no more disgraceful
surrender had been recorded in history, and stai'd,
among other things, that the Japanese, wnen they t" "k
pnsspcsion, found I'i.iM, men able to bear arms, against
SfiOO claimed by Stossel; that great quantities of antmunl-
tion remained; that there was no want of shelter or
coal; and that It was failure of other comforts than
ammunition aud supplies that the Russian officers feared.
So decided the commission appointed to Investigate
the surrender of Port Arthur, it recommended that
General Stcessel be dismissed from the army and shot;
that Lieutenant Genoral Fock, commander of one of tht
divisions, who had a leg shot off, be dismissed from
the army and undergo a year's hard labor; that General
Relss, chief of etaff of Stoessel. be dismissed and banished, and that Admiral Alexleff. Lifutei.ant General
Smirnoff   and General Vernunder be reprimanded
It wns held that the surrender wae not such an Inconsequential matter aa Stoessel thought, as it released
General Nogl's army, permitting him to take part in
the operations around Mukden, Which were disastrous lo
the Russians.
Of a race of fighters, Stoessel had performed many
acts to win him the gratitude of Lis country before taking part ln the Russo-Japanese War.
Ills grandfather fought against Napoleon; his father
PTVed In the Emperor's L'hlun GuardB; and he, nlmself,
born fifty-two years ago, served with distinction lu ti.o
Russo-TurklBh  War.
In 1900 Stoessel was commander of a Siberian regiment. His rlrat great chance to win fame came with
tho Boxer uprising, when he waa the first European*
cummander to enter Tientsin, and rose to lhe rank of
major-general for dash displayed In the uttuck on
the Chinese capital.
Tot, with apparently as little concern as one would
feel at cutting mt a chicken's head, Russia, through her
high army officials, has branded this man as a traitor and
demanded his life.

7~\ATHER a strange fact it seems that,
ft while the eyes of the world have heen
-*■ *■ turned upon stirring events in trance
during the last- few weeks, the Ministers
guiding the French ship of State through tortuous channels have been, for the most part,
men whose business it is to give news of such
events to the public.
When Premier Clemenceau formed the
new French Cabinet late in October he filled
nine of the twelve portfolios with newspaper
Some of them, like himself, were editors
cf distinction. Others were political or special
writers attached to the staffs of leading Paris
papers. Several had served an apprenticeship,
reporting proceedings in the French Parlia*
ment which was now called upon to support
their policy as Ministers.
Confronted b)' momentous conditions
upon beginning official life, and pledged to a
programme of immense possibilities, A7. Clemenceau s neve Cabinet of editors buckled
down to work with the assurance of men not
unfamiliar with crises.
As calmly as though directing the tone of
an editorial or shaping the policy of a newspaper, they faced and grappled with one of
the epoch-making situations of the world's

Cl^menceau's great opportunity as a statesman
did not come until his sixty-fifth year.
Perhaps for that reason he sought to Insure the
success of his administration and the carrying out of his
policies by surrounding himself with men of his own
profession, in whose ability he had perfect confidence
and whose loyalty to himself and the republic could not
be doutttd.
Ciemer.ceau had long been known ns a Cabinet-
breaker; many a Ministry had gone down under his
n'erclless lire of criticism and exposure. When hla own
tui-n came to form a Cabinet he determined to build
strongly and well.

danger to himself, fur greater moderation. He became
a inembtr ol the National Assembly and member of lhc

Later he became a member of the Senate.
Fur the last thirty years, practically without a break,
Georges Clemenceau, in Parliament and out of It, has
been ine critic of the government. For fifteen years he
wati the leader uf tlie Left, the man who never climbed
the stepa of the tribune lu the Chamber without attacking bltturly a government which, as he snid one day,
"consisted of men who only managed io remain In
office by refusing, when they got there, to do what they
had premised while they were In Opposition."
During much of this time M. Clemenceau was the
busy managing editor of La JusUce. Always a lu.rd
worker, he never approved the easy-going ways of tha
average French "Journalist," as each newspaper man
there flights to call himaelf.
Once he posted thlB notlci in the office of the paper:
"The gentlemen on the staff of La JuBtlce are requested

are constantly irritated hy defects in their pipes;
the completely toothing, satisfying effects an- not
theirs. The reason 1 Thf pipes are not correct in
IN THK way of material, nothing ls better than
corncob. Hence, with a pocket-knife, a rob snd a
reed for a stem, a pipe may be made in a few
minutes that will prove equal to 'he most costly,
The secret of merit In a plpl Is a matter of construction purely, nol of material. Tba wonder le thai wo
f*w men know It
At the bottom, It la a question of proper draught.
Wllh regard to a aiove or furnace, the Importance of
draught is well understood, but It Is seldom ibought
uf In connection with the pipe.
Proper draught deoands ipun lhe shape of the how]
and tlie way In which the etui of the stem opens Into
IL The howl should he deep, Its sides thick, its bore
mall and even; nnd the item should open Into It at
thl very bottom and In the centre
Of the utmost Importance Is tha location of ths
draught hole In the bottom of the bowl. It should be
at ths bottom and In the exact centre.
Molt plp*»B— perhaps the majority- have the stem in-
tranre at ni* bottom, but at one side of the bowl. This
mean* that the draught downward through th* tobacco
Is made obliquely, and a considerable notion of the
pipe's eontintl  '■*  not properly  ignited
With th« stern entrance In the CintM of the bottom,
lhe tobacoo burns evenly on al] aides of the howl, and
lho smoke is cool, pleasiint, fragrant and satisfying.

That tl.e t*»mp-*rfiiur« of the burning tobSCCO miiy I*

Th** thick aid's of the bowl also contribute to even-

tobacco being really due to faulty or uniclentlflo construction.
Many fancy pipes are worthless, They are io con-
etn-rted that the draught Is uneven, hi consequince of
Which the tobacco burni down oue ildo while It smoulders fm  tha other.
The unhurried, but highly heated tobacco li more

those from the charred portion! and the tobacco that

In addition to being light, and hence easily held

Hence the corncob may be reckoned as the king of
"Nleottne-cntchlng" devices are generally worthiest.
The liquid wastes from a pipe are tarry, and, If held
In weiiies of the pipe, decay and become a terror to the
smoker and his Immediate  neighbors.
In a plain pipe, all waite matter may be eMtl*
cleaned out, as it must be to Insure a really enjoyable
A knowing smoker, then, will iet that his pipe Is
deep ind narrow, or small of bore, that lt hu thiols

bottom and exactly In the middle. And if he would
draw comfort from It, snd pleasant dreams, he should
keep It clean, dry and sweet
