ThiB popular club held its social on
Tuesday night, Use. 29th, in the club
room, over the Burns'store, and the
big Buocess once kagain demonstrated
that in iudoor entertainment, aa well
aa outdoor sport, it supplies the best.
The president, VV. VV. Foster, called
the lirst item on the programme at
8:30, and until midnight the keen interest, enjoytneut and enthusiasm of
members and their guests was sustained. Every one of tbe hundred
citizens present pronounced tbe festive
gathering as something to be long remembered for ita excellence. Quartets, duets, vocal, pianoforte und piccolo solos, apeechea, and a reading in
the Yorkshire dialect, conipriaed the
entertainment, and presentations to
tbe captain, F. H. Bourne; to J.
Maley, the most popular man in tbe
club; to R. Entwistle, the club's
famous bowler, and to A. P. Shaw, the
man with tbe beat batting average,
comprised tbe programme.
The sweet singing of Mr. Pagden
and bis little son, and of Mr. Brace-
well, must be specially mentioned,
they being very welcome new additions to Revelstoke entertainers.
A very handsome electrically litted
reading lamp, presented to F. H.
Bourne, was the material form adopted to express to that gentleman
the great appreciation of bis captaincy
ot the olub and the esteem in which
ho is held by tlie members. The presentation was made by Mayor Lindmark, who admirably voiced the club's
sentiment. A spontaneous outburst
of cheers aud the "Jody Good Fellow"
chorus could leave no doubt in the
captain's mind of the warm regard in
wbicb he is beld.
To J. Maley, who is recognized as
the principal man responsible for the
good showing of the club, and who
has, at considerable sacrifice, given bo
much time to coaching and constant
practice with the members, a handsome and comfortable chair, waa pre-
aeuted—B. K. Atkius, iu a very
humorous speech, eulogising the accomplishments ol the genial Joe.

tinned improvements took place,   in

become ;i handicraft, which is carried
to u  high  degree of    perfection    in
ninny places in Scotland.
L'ntil the formation of the
Royal Caledonian Curling Club
in 1838, there was no general cnile of
laws regulating the game, nor was
there any limit as lo size and shape
of stones used in it. Indeed, in inane
districts lhe game for some time alter this continued to be played with
-ewii players a side in each rink, tho
players having only une stone each,
lhe size of which was regulated by
lhe strength of the player. This
manifestly Bave the stronger man an
immense advantage, for while skill
will always beal strength (except
when the ice becomes so soft as 10
prevent fine play), the skill may Le
as much on the side of tbe strong
plaier as on that oi the weak. To
equalize the chances in s..iiie degree,
ii e Royal Curling Club have fixed lhe
miximuin weight of the stone at 50
pounds, and the minimum al 30
p..iiinls. while the diameter must not
eseeed 12 inches. Instead of -even
players a side, each playing one stone,
a inr greater interest was given to the
game by limiting the players to (onion one side, and giving each a pair
of stones to play. There is a great
variety o:"
Stones in Use,
those most esteemed being, as near
a- possible, non-porous, and little
subject t" he affected by dampness.
Those mosl extensively used in the
VVcsl of Scotland are called liur-

a wide district il l.as given way tu

ilie player to follow the stone with
perfect freedom on the ice, a pair of
ice boots made from any woollen
stuff the stronger the better—is a
great improvement "ii a custom still
very prevalent, of playing with ordinary boots, the steel sparrowbills
or tackets in these scratching the ice
and keeping it much dirtier than
when the feel an. covered. Thus
equipped, the player is ready to take

11 is manifest that to   propel    the

Some   Firmer  Footing
must be obtained than ever woollen
hoots can give, and this is secured in
., vanity of ways. In Lanarkshire
and niany other places the fashion
still prevails of cutting a notch or
hack in the ice, in which the player
places the Ioe of his right foot, and
with the other planted firmly in front
of him, obtains the necessary power
oi propulsion. The system is open
to the suggestion that 011 weak ice
you aim.'st inevitably bring up the
water. Another way is l" have a
Iriangiilar piece of iron, called 11 trigger, which is fixed ill the ice, and affords a good footing for the right
foot, "ii which the strain mainly

the players use what is called cram-
pets, being a shod of leather and iron,
with -pike- which they draw on to
either foot, bul Ihis cms up the ice
very much, and looks a barbarous invention. To iny mind the best footing is obtained by a using n strip of
iron, abnul three feel and 11 half in
length and eighl inches broad, with
two small prongs before and behind,
and with a clump of wood at the
hack, against which the ball of the
right foot rests. The board is roughened by perforating it with small
holes, which prevent- ice forming Oil
it, and gives a firm and -ure fouling.

gae close, and if you rub the guard,
or lie al my brush wc 11 find a way lo
get al it. There, noo, Unit's gue well
played—that  shot  will  work  yet."
Skip No 1 directs each player in
turn in similar language to defend
the shot, that has been so skilfully
placed, while the efforts of No. 2 skip
are exerted to open a way to it. Al
length the skips, who are selected for
their skill in the game, as well as
their superior play, are left, to try
conclusions, the third players in the
meantime taking charge of the tee
head. The shot so toughly contested
is lying now dangerously open, and if
not guarded. Skip No. 2, whose deadly aim at a "bullet shot' is rarely
known to fail, will get a glorious
chance; hut loud and triumphant are
the shouts of No. l's players as the
stone gradually creeps forward and
comes to rest, covering the first a
good three yards behind. Skip No,
_.' is directed to try "guard and winner" a strong shot that, by driving
the guard straight up, mighi cannon
011 the winner, and SO carry built out
of the ring. Up comes the stone careering like thunder, and as it crashes on the opponent's guard, aud
drives il among the stones that lie in
and around the ring, for u moment
the result seems doubtful, but the instant it is seen that the effect hits
been only, lo displace a few of these
without affecting' the position of the
winner, the exultation is loud on lhe
side of No. 1, whose skip with his
final shut again protects the winner.
Nothing nuw remains but to try some
other more skilful shot, it may be an
outwick or au inwick, which is secured by striking the outside of a
stone ai the precise angle that will
drive il in the face of the winner; or
the player with his own stone may
rich.ochet off lhe inside, and so obtain
the result. It is a difficult shut to
play, and as Skip Mu. J is directed to
try it a breathless silence falls upon
the players. For a moment the skip
looks steadily at the stone to be rubbed, then measuring accurately the
burrow required, as well as the exact
velocity tu be given, he swings il
gracefully behind him, and delivers
it straight from the hand. To the excited beholders it would seem at first
that it had fled the mark, and n shortlived shout of delight comes from the
players of No. I rink; hut instantly
it is found that the twist, for which
allowance had been made, is gradually bringing it to the very spot, and as
it neatly catches the edge of tin: stone
and a feeling of disgust    overspread
The Social Character
of the game. The happy mixing and
mingling of all classes ol the community is productive of the very best
results. Nothing goes further to reconcile the inequalities of lhe social
scale than to see those who are at
tin- top ot the ladder taking a lively
nnl intelligible interest in the nation-
jl sports and pastimes of the people.
I'he late Karl of Eglinton, of Flying
IJutchman aud Tournament fame, was
foremost in his hearty encouragement of all such sports; in fact, he
may lie said tu have created the gallic
of Howls by the great efforts he put
forth i" popularize it,, while nothing
in the wide world possibly presented
a greater attraction to him than to
iii-ad the players ol Kilwinning in
their bonspiels against neighboring
parishes. His Lordship was a very
skilful player himself, and associated
with linn were Hugh Conn, auctioneer: |ohn Napier, studgroora, and
Robert Brown of Lilcston. John
played the lead with a pair of 50
a pair of 48 pound; Hugh Conn played
4'' or .14 pound, as lhe day might require, while his lordship skipped with
a pair of .(-' pound. They were all
powerful men, as well as good players (Hugh C'.'iin was the finest player I ever saw), and thus equipped,
ihcy scarcely ever knew defeat. 1
once saw tliein tudly puzzled, however, and although victory ultimately
rested with them, it was only by a
narrow majority. The day was one
of the finest imaginable for the spurt;
the aii was sharp, the snow crisp,
and the ice polished like a mirror.
I'hey had tlieir heaviest metal with
them, and as luck wuuld have it, in
draw they fell against a rink of pig-
, whose weigliliest stone little
exeeded ,j.|lh. Nothing could be more
,,lining than to watch the chagrin, mixed wtih amusement, of his
Lordship and his players as tlieir
greut stones drove their opponents

the touch followed, and by dint oi
.veeping, were ill turn carried clear of it themselves, ft was a

those ii"! very remote days the game
wa- indulged ill by a wider circle
thin is to be found engaging in    it
now, and the contests were frequently
for a "beef and greens dinner," and
the game being played uver again
with many additions, at the festive
board. Times have changed greatly,
however, and instead of spending the
money in guzzling and gorging the
cry is "remember the pour." I cannot recall evil' having heard of a
match playid lur money to be divided
among the players, aud in this re-
spect the reproach uf gambling cannot be brought against the game of
curling; but many parish bonspiels
and privati matches are played for
the benefit of the pom, and in my
own parish this very icason over
£40 has been raised and distributed among the necessitous in coals,
meal ami groceries. One day last
week I saw a rink consisting of seven
ciders ul the Kirk nf Scotland and
the assistant minister, playing a
match for a loud nf meal, while on the
day after the curlers from a distant
parish, headed hy their minister, met
a home club in friendly e.uitesl on the
same ice although in this instance
only a district medal, value 7s 6d,
presented by the Royal Caledonian
Club, was tlie reward of the victors!
Curling Contests,
the one lhat excites most interest is
the Great National, annually arranged under the auspices of the Royal
Club, between the North and Soulh
of Scotland. When played on the
south side, Casllesemplc Loch in
Renfrewshire is the place selected
and the division of the country is a
line drawn nurth and south of the
Clyde. This loch is remarkable for
il- safely, and the beauty of its surroundings, and no finer sight can be
imagined than lo sec its glassy surface covered by many thousands of
spectators while over 100 rinks of enthusiastic curlers engage iu the game.
VV lien llie nurth, in turn, is llie scene
uf contest, it takes place at Crecn-
loaning, between Stirling and Perth,
011 a series of flushes rented by the
Caledonian Club, and Ihus perfect
safely—an important element where
50 many people arc drawn together
—is secured. The line in this case is
shifted to the Forth, and it is generally found that whatever district is
visited by the club, from that side
there is sure to be a preponderance
of rinks. Unfortunately lor sonic
years past the frost was, not strung
enough tu permit ul bringing off this
game. 1ml litis year lhe committee
had their arrangements early completed, and mi Friday, the 1 Jib, the
great even', came oft at l.oeliwiiinoch.
Su far as the state of the ice was concerned nothing belter could have
been desired; but alasl a fog r.etllcd
on the loch, and narrowed the span of
vision to a score or two of yards on
either side, so that visitors had to
grope their way about without, in
many instances, even seeing their
friends, while at no moment from
-tart to finish did the fog lift sufficiently to give a full view of the
Little now remains for me lo say.
Since I began this article the weather
favorable fur the prosecution of the
game has departed, but the spell we
enjoyed uf it has left so many plea-
sant recollections 011 my mind that I
must heartily wish that thousands
more of my fellow-countrymen, especially those south of the Tweed,
would endeavor tu take advantage of
ihe first opportunity that may offer
tu acquire a practical knowledge of
this healthful recreation; and if information should be required on any

Canada's Forest Area.
Further investigation has led Dean
Fernow, oi the Faculty ol Forestry of
the University of Toronto, to tbe conclusion that bis estimate of 300,000,000
acres as tbeextentof the commercially
valuable timber land of Canada is too
high, aud he now believes that 200,-
000,000 acres would be nearer tbe
mark. The commercially valuable
forests of Canada.be reasons, are those
comprised within the ranges of the
white and red pino in Eastern Canada
and the Douglas fir in Uritish Columbia. A certain proportion has to he
substracted from tbis to provide for
the land that is at too great an altitude for the growth cf trees, rocky
land and other waste land, and when
all this has been done there remains
little more than the figure cited.
