Nothing tatter than Our " Speoial,
Express Office Broken Into at
Exshaw - Five Thousand
Dollars Stolen-No Clue to
Latest advices received slate that a
daring and well planned robbery took
place last night at Exshaw, a few miles
west uf Calgary, shortly before No, 117,
which was several hours late, arrived at
that station. (In reaching thee it was
discovered that, the express olliee bad
been broken ii to nnd a large quantity
ol valuables and money stolen to the
approximate value of $5,000, tho contents of the olliee being scattered
everywhere. No cine to the perpetrators ol the robbery has yet been lound
but it is supposed thai they boarded
the train at Exshaw, A general search
ol the passengers was made hut nothing was discovered to place suspicion
on any une of them. Thc matter is
now in the hands ol thc police who
are going over the ground. Unfortunately snow has been tailing since
whioh will probably obliterate any
truces of (oot marks. Further details
are not yet forthcoming. Owing to
there being a large number of men
employed at the cement works near
Exshaw and a large amount ol niouey
being necessarily kept there, it is
feared that the robbery was larger
than first estimated.

Rockefeller Threatened by a
Crazy Woman.
New Yobk, Nov. 29.—Charged with
threatening to kill John D.Rockefeller
unless he paid her a million dollars,
Mrs. Rose Delina Beauvois Handheld,
4U years old, waB arrested yesterday on
a warrant issued by a police magis
trate. At tbe district attorney's office
Mrs. Handheld said her husband had

reported that the cause ol their quit-
log work is due to the recent dynamite
Tbe regular bi weekly meeting ol
the mayor and city council was held
lust night. Mayor Mcl.cud and Aldermen l'liliner, Howson nud Trimble
werc present.
Tbo minutes ol tlie last- mealing
were adopted as read. Communications were received from Chief ol
Police T. Bain, re lire alarm rung in
Irom the Hotel Revelstoke, nnd suggesting that the telephone in No. 2
tire hall he connected up with Ihe
central. After considering whether
the city was justified in paying the
extra money for the connection iu the
fire hall the matter was referred to the
Fire, Water & Light committee.
From H. Cook, secretary of No. 1
Fire Brigade, requesting that certain
supplies lor the brigade be purchased,
as well as several repairs done in the
liie hall, This matter was left to the
Mayor to arrange for.
From Col. T. H. Tracey in connection with the most suitable forms of
electrical power, and puwer pr during
plants, and if the cnuncil wished him
to take tbe matter up, to furnish him
with the plans and proposals as to
what theconditions should be for tlie
installation of such plant.—Filed.
From J. Kane, night operator at
the power house, tendering an application for an increase of salary to $80
a month. This communication was
accompanied by a letter fron. R.
Gordon recommending the increase
uf salary and stating that Kane was
in every way satisfactory.—Laid over
for further consideration.
From the Revelstoke Land Co., requesting that a rebate of taxes on certain lots that had been partially
destroyed by the errosion ol the river
bank and on lots adjoining, which
wero now valueless for the same
reason. It was resolved that the rebate asked for should be allowed on
the lands washed away by the river.
From G. S. McCarter, re the alleged
tampering with the electric wires in
the liouse of Mrs. Boultoa on Third
St. It stated that the charge could
not bc proved against her personally,
but that the city should cut off the
light in that house until the arrears
due to the city are paid. Aid. Howson moved that Mrs. Boulton be notified that unless the arrears of light
due tu the city be paid by December
17th the light in her hosse will be
cut oft*.
A petition ligned by a large number
ot citizens was presented by E. M.
Cuuk, accompanied by a deputation
requesting that a rebate in taxes
should be made on the Y. M. C. A.
property. Mr. Cook stated that the
Y. M. C. A. was a, gift hy the citizens
of Revelstoke to the city and wns
instituted for the benefit of all. He
said that the grounds for tax exemption were, that the institution wns a
benefit to the city and went n long
way to improve the moral status of
the city in general. That it was the
only place in town where young men
could meet and spend their time.
That it was a splendid advertisement
for Revelstoke nnd that it had never
had any concessions from the city yet.
He said, in no ease in Canada was it
shown where a oity hnd taxed the Y.M
C. A. and why should Revelstoke prove
tlie exception That the institution
will amply repay the city by producing good, honest citizens. That the
Moosejaw council had granted free
water and light to the Y. M, C, A.,
and lhat he felt that the exemption
was well earned and Bhould be grunted
by the city tu the institution whicli
had made Revelstoke so popular.
Mei rs. Bews and Hume endorsed the
tatements made by Mr. Cook, saying
thai us the Y.M.C.A, were behind in
their financial uffiiira the exemption
on llie taxes would help luatters out.
F. Lewis said that the Y, M, C. A. as
a charitnhle institution would greatly
hem-lit tl.e city aud was a gift uf tl.e
citizens who were proud ol it. He
suggested that a by-law be put before
the ratepayers lor making the exemption permanent. Tbe Mayor addressing the deputation said that the
con. cil were unable tn deal witii tbo
mailer that night as several o( the
aide, men wero absent, but lie said
thai he lelt sure the petition would hu
granted at least tn some extent and
lelt quite satisfied that a partial rebate
would be given. That a speoial meeting would be held next week to Anally
decide the matter.
Several general nwt.te.-B wero then
discussed and the cily electrician, (>,
Lcmhkc, was requested to state the
causes of the constant, burning out of
fusei In public places. Ho said that
thc main cause was tho fact ol thu
wires being loaded with too much current and sometimes thetampering with
the (uses, especially by hoys in the
Opera House, and suggested that all
wiring should be dune under the direction of the city electrician The
meeting thon terminated,
Declaration of Rufus Pope at
Nelson Creates Much Excitement — Vancouver Bar
will Likely Investigate.
The report in The Province hist
evening of tlie statement ninde nt Nelson yesterd y liy Rufus H Pope, tlmt
the vacant Bl'ilish Columbia judgeship
imis (or sale for $7,000, mealed no end
ol a sensation around town last night,
says the Vanoouver Province of Nov,
29th. At the clubs and in the prominent hotels nothing else was spoken
ol. There wero mysteriuus hints tlnit
there was something in what Pope
said, but no one seemed to know just
what that something amounted to.
The senior partner ol one of the leading law linns in the city stated that he
had unquestioned authority for tl.e
assertion that a direct cash offer uf
$10,000 had been mi.de for the appointment by a well known Vanoouver
In well posted quarters it was the
general conclusion that the Vancouver
Liberal Association know nothing ol
the matter, but that certain individuals who, perhaps, are members of it,
bud decided that whoever was appointed would have to make a cash payment as a quid pro quo, the estimates
of tl.e amount varying from thirty-
live hundred to forty-two hundred
dollars. It was also stated that certain local barristers ol standing had
been su impressed with the gravity ol
the situation that they had put the
lull facta before the Minister of Justice at Ottawa.
Sn far as public gossip has gone the
two nanus commonly mentioned in
connection with the vacancy have
been those of Mr. J.H. Senklerand
Mr. F. C. Wade, K. C. It goes without saying that neither of these gentlemen would be a party to the indecent arrangement proptfc'ed, or any
other arrangement that was not absolutely fair aud above board.
The scandal is assuming such pro
portions that it was said to-day that
it is not unlikely that a general meeting of the Vancouver bar will be called
when all the facts get-at-able will be
brought out.
In the meantime exact information
does not appear to be forthcoming.

Tasteful Window Dressing Will
Attract Customers.
Our stores our beginning to open
out. their Christmas goods and -novel-
ties and each will vie with the other
in making their windows as attractive
as possible. Our merchants have ever
been skilled in the art ol window
dressing and dainty effects not only
please the eye but attract business in
every way. The Advertising side of
the window trim is its objective
groundwork; the beauty derived from
thc goods and in the manner ot its
make up, is another sideof the trim.
The two sides combine utility and the
beautiful, thereby strengthening the
whole. The aim is to gain attention
for tlie goods through the pleasures
for the beautilul. This is done upon
the theory that what gives one great
pleasure will create an interest for the
thing itself. Each, therefore aims to
put the greatest amount of beauty
possible into his trim, knowing that
whatever is beautiful will command
Window trimming then, iB something more than the cold fact presented in an advertisement. It is
verification nf those facts through the
instrumentality ut color contrasts aud
harmony in decoration. It must give
the feelings nf pleasure tor the beautiful or it is worthless as an object of
high art. The pleasureable side of tlie
trim, therefore cannot bo neglc.Uid
without destroying its Iim!; end
siiieti the pleasures it is tu afford are
to be reached throuli thu nature uf the
beauty it represents, it cannot divert
itself of the principles and laws that
govern in tbe appreciation oi thu
beautiful in the art on nature.

SATURDAY, DEC. 1, 1900
The theme of many sermonB has
been the duties of citizenship, but wo
do not know that the people of Revel-
Etoke need lessons in citizenship more
than any other people, but we have
yet to learn of a community that
would not be the better for a frequent
reminder of the obligations resting
upon those who constitute the body
politic. In Cauada we hear very much
of tlie necessity of party fealty.
Within certain necessary limitations
a good party man must be a good
citizen. He may not always be able
to discriminate betws en what is for
the benefit ol his own political organization and what is tor the public advantage, but he at least takes an
active interest in public affairs, and
works with all his energy to promote
party success which he can easily persuade himself is synonymous with
the general welfare of the country.
He may be very often open to criticism but he cannot be charged with
indifference to public questions and
between the upper and lower mill
stones of partizan discussion very often
the finest flour ol public opinion is
ground out. The people who need to
be stimulated in respect to their duties
as citizens are those who hold alool
from active participation in political
life, the people who tell you that they
have no time for politics, the people
who do little to promote the advancement oi the country along those lines
which can only be dealt with through
the medium oi politics and those who
complain very loudly when things go
wrung, although tbey rarely complain
when it will do any guod. "It is not
necessary to be a party man," states
the Daily Colonist, "to be a good
citizen," but there are very few questions upon which an intelligent man
cannot place himself in harmony with
one ot the other of the political parties. Itjis not undesirable tbat there
should be a large element in thiB community without any fixed political
affiliations, provided that those who
constitute it take the trouble to keep
themselves informed upon the questions of the day and when election
comei round, rally to the party which
meets nearest to their views. Let
there be greater interest taken by
these nun party people in the active
work of politics, nut only by coming
to the polls to rata but by taking pail
in the work of campaigns.
Municipal and political honors
ihuuld nol be taken loo lightly, as
there n no aspect ol public affairs
which comei more closely home to the
Revelstoke community as ibis.
Apropos ol the fire alarm from tin-

ing snd the inability of the telephone

it may be seasnnable lo Btrongly sug
gest that the telephone in the No. 2

olliee sn that in a luture occurrence of
a like nature to that whicli happened
on Thursday evening, the boys can be

Tlie interest that a few of Canada's
pui lie men nnd Britisli Columbia in
pi licular, have manifested in the
bin banding of the country's forest
we.ilth, is one that might be emulated
wilh much profit by every Canadian
an.I particularly by those who have
mu le their homes in Revelstuke. The
shortsightedness of tlie provincial
governments as u whole in the Dominion has nlreiidy led to the reckless
deslrxction of enormous tracts of valuable timlier ol all kinds. Tbe methods perhaps, of taxing forest ureaB,
have rather encouraged this waste and
in some ways discouraged the development ol a i ew crop, It is only ot late
yenri that the subject ol forest piescr-
ml inn bus received and is now receiving any measure ol attention that it
so much doserves.
Tlie meeting oi tlie Canadian Forestry Ass icinliiin und the Mountain
Lumk-niinn'i- Association, have now
served the purpose of directing public
attention lo the important features
of ibe forest question and will undoubtedly lend In better cure being
taken ol wb.it still remains ol tliis
great heritage, Without a doubt the
ohiel asset ol British Columbia and
our own district, perhaps, are the forest areas whicli of late have brought
so much capital into the country. The
value uf forests cannot be measured by
the number ol feet of timber that can
be cut out of them, for it is now quite
a recognized tuct that woodlands huve
a very important bearing on the coun
try's rainfall and climate, and there
lore on its agricultural value. The
Canadian government recognizing the
important bearing that the forests of
the Rocky Mountains have upon the
rainfall and couBequently upon the
water supply of the adjacent prairies,
hai taken steps to preserve large ureas
from cutting In many cases trees of
practically no commercial value now,
have been destroyed, which trees if
reserved Iiom cutting for a few years
will serve a double purpose of conserving the rainfall and protecting the
lumber i"dustry uf the future. Some
of the p.ovinciiil administrations are
also setting apart large reserves and
aro maintaining rangers to guard
against, the «pread of forest lires in tbe
dry seasons uf the year. In view ol
tbe interest involved, too great notice
and caution cannot be taken of a
problem in which is bound up much
of the future prosperity and progress
of tlie whole country and we should
endeavor to realize whnt superiority
over other countries our timber resources give us.

desire to work and improve their lot

A Reverie Over the  Passing
of the Year.
The year is fast drawing to its close
and only a short week or two remains
ol a period ol time, which perhaps to
some has been mnmeutous, to others
a tune - i -i.run md to Othors also, a
■eason ul prosperity and gladness It
is sincerely hoped tbat we in Revel
stoke can be numbered amongsl the
latter and that tbe past months nl
1900 oan in future years lm looked
back upon us moments of pleasant
reminiscence,   Christmas is coming
on apace, and with it nil the festivities
tlnit Inmi time immemorial have gone
to make that season one ol Hie bright*
est ol the year. Christmas is looked
lorwaid to by each and every one of
us, by old and young, each in the
milliter to whioh it appeals molt, The
Stores get busy and arrange handsu
and attractive window displays, holding out all manner of tempting goods
to attract the eye and pocket, Without Christmas the declining year
would indeed be dull. Happily in
Revelstoke this festive season can be
well taken advantage of, seeing that
we nre all more or less prospering and
With that feeling we can enjoy it to
advantage and spend the duy In the
wny it was intended to be spent, in
thanksgiving, rejoicing and devotion,
passi a away and the new uncut volume
is placed belore us to open (resh uiul
clean, that we may be in a position to
start the new year bright and harmoniously 'lith a spirit ol reciprocity to
our mutual advantage as citizens and

Centre — Timber Resources
Will Benefit our City.
That British Coluinbin will not owe
thnt abounding prosperity which one
day will assuredly be the position ol
tlie province, solely to the development of her gold deposits bus become
more uud more apparent during the
pusl few years. Nor will she, afler
the fashion of the new Northwestern
provinces be dependent upon miles
anil miles of prairie under grain fur
her wealth, lioth'-lbese sources uf income and prosperity will doubtless
contribute to her progress, but it will
lie as a manufacturing, a timber, u
conl and an iron producing country
that liritish Columbia will lo known
to the world as the present new century rolls on. The greatest ot these
sources is undoubtedly hor timber aud
in treating upon that question, we get
right home at once. Revelstoke is
situated in the heart of ono of the
richest timber districts that can be
found in British Columbia, and this
district containing hundreds of thous-
and. of acres of tlie finest grade timber is year by year being more fully
exploited. Besides this, the climate
is so well adopted to timber growths
that if lires are kept out and the
ground not cut up for agricultural, a
new tree giowth rapidly succeeds the
old, so that it promises to be forever a
natural forest reserve. Tlie lumber
development of the Revelstoke district
nnd Big Bend district, while it began
at a comparatively recent date under
the direction of its own people has
become of considerable magnitude un.
der the touch of incoming capital and
incoming capitalists. We havo, during the lust year or two fairly oponed
the eyeB of the province, and not only
of our own province, but of the United
States. We have cruised, located and
staked, hundreds of square mileB ol
timber, and now the world is beginning to realize how valuable and rich
are these vast loreBt ureaB uf this interior country. Capital has poured
iu, labor has been brought in and
what, will be nsked, will lie the direct
results of thi*? lt will mean that still
more hand cash will be brought into
this country, that Rcvelstuke as the
centre, the leading city ol I he interior,
receive tl.e benefit ot all this
combination ol labor and capital;
lalinr will mean lhat sn many nmre
men will purchase stores, et-., in our
city; that accommodation will have to
be lound for them which menus a big
demand for sawn lumber, they will all
hnvo tu be fed whicli means a rise in
trade, that the money will be circulated in our city, which means business, that the bank wiil receive the
sture of gold which means prosperity,
and the combination ol both capital
and labor will mean a general incentive Inr others to open ip stores and
commercial bouses. All around us
there lie vast tract, timb. areas as

Industry, whioh, when unci: more extensive ways ol communication havo

A Few Statistics for the last
Twelve Months.
liy the way of marking the anniversary of the granting of theso called
"constitution" by tlie Czar in November of last year, cerlain Russian newspapers have been compiling statistics
for the twelve months. The figures,
which arc not complete, show that in
that time there have been 22,721 vie
tims of riots, 1,518 executions, 851
political prisoner! condemned to
penal servitude for terms aggregating
7,138 years, 647 prosecutions of editors
523 papers and reviews stopped, 183
secret printing offices or literature
depots and 150 secret deposits of arms
discovered and 241 bombs thrown at
representatives of the authorities.
These statistics need no comment,
except that Russia iB not a desirable
country to live in.
You talk about the advance price of
woollens and wages, one would never
believe it when such values are being

THERE has been a definite
change since last year in
the position blouses occupy,
brought about by the vogue
of whole costumes in place of last
year's stunning suits, relieved by the
sheerest and most beautiful of
blouses. No longer is the blouse tbe
inevitable accompaniment of any
nnd every costume, except tho truo
"dress" affairs.
But. the blouses that nre left to
us have boon found plenty of use
f"r. Host of them have yokes, introduced perhaps as the only pnrt
of the hand-embroidery thnt ic on
ninety-nine out of n hundred of
them. And the majority have the
embroidery concentr»t
yoke, with spray, scattered upon
tbe rest of the blouse, sleeves as
'until fronl and back,
The simplest treatment of nil in
making is to finish "If the yoke with
a small scallop—the sume wee. simple kind thnt is in evidence upon
::;- ut 'if ten pieces of lingerie

beaded ruse, with a bit of exquisite

Whatever the motif, it is invariably

multnn stylo, with tho omlir..iiili-ry
.-- -    - tratcd mostly al tho cuff, yet
willi littlo touches of it placed hero

Sueh a sleeve seems nu .c Individual—moro ns though the whole
scheme of tho mnldng were planned
before even a stitch of tho embroidery wns tnken. Just a small motif
nn a cuff savors ton much nf thn pat
terns which come nil icndy for milking up—some of them rich enough,
but many of them as nearly nliku in

The eolliirlesB blouse is no longer
seen, although the collarless dress—
or a gnwn cut so slightly low as to
scum little more than collnrlcsB—is
in high favor with the younger clement, who don such gowns for a
dozen occasions where in seasons
past nothing but n high-nocked gown
wns permissible.
Ami there is very lillle Mousing
in front, the idea lieing to get the
effect of ii loose blouse, while in reality every scrnp of fulness is cure-
fully considered, and the blouse
fitted villi fnr more euro lhnn even

wear with the tight-fitting tailor

That Iron Boiler
The evil case of the worried house*
wife and the galvanised Iron boiler has
drawn out n number of letters of sympathy and counsel. As opinions differ
somewhat as to lhe cause and possible
cure of the trouble, we will give two or
three, and let ber draw ber own conclusion.
I would *?ay to "Mrs, IV" about her
boiler, that I think tha reason tin aecond

fruits should not be cooked In un Iron
Utensil when any other is attainable. It
is almost certain to darken the fruit,

Here Is the advice of another of our

"Mra. P-." of Ilnn ton Harbor. Mich.,

region is strongly Impregnated wllh minerals (Iron and sulphur), and when cily
well water Is used it has lhe effect described up"n galvanized boilers, particularly if any washing rlni.i be used in washing. I
liorax may all.-viaie the annoyance, but
ii usually means a new washbofler us the
easiest way out of lhe difllculty.
This was my experience during twenty
years of housekeeping in that part of the

Having had tho same experience with a
galvanized lion boiler as has "Mrs. P.," uf
Benton llarbur. Mich., I hasten to help la-r
oul of her dilemma. The trouble Is with
the boiler Itself. Tell her to make two or
three baga of coarae muslin or of ticking,
aii-iut the sin,- of common pillow slips, to
put her clothes In before placing them in
tlie holler, using one for Ino finer articles,
one for table linen, another for bed linen,
and su on. A drawstring may be run In
the top of each hug, or it muy be folded
down and fastened with large safety pins.
No scum can then touch ihe clothes. The
bugs, when emptied, must 11" well rinsed
and hung out with the clothes.

TIME wai when the orange was
a luxury; now It hns become a
necessity even to families of very
moderate means. \\ u have come
to realize that this fruit is more than
palatable—it is health-bringing, except
where overticldity of the blood exists,
and even then thi! orange may often be
taken when ull oilier fruit is forbidden.
Fortunately, with California's competition, and the rlvalrv between the spicy,
seedless navel varieties of the I'acilie
coast and the sweeter but uncomfortably seeded iruit of the Indian river
and other parts of Florida, the orange
has become so chenp that It can form
part of our daily menu. If cost is at all
a question, then dispense th ment occasionally.
About the only drawback to the orange
is tbe eating Of It Juiciness is delicious;
but juiciness on face, lingers or front
of a fresh white blouse lias ils disadvantages. The proper method of serving
is therefore a somewhat Important subject.
There are two distinct ways in which
the orange is used; one as a fruit, pure
and simple; the other as a part or accompaniment of salad or dessert.
When eaten for Itself alone, the orange usually forms a first course ut
breakfast or n lasl at dinner and luncheon. Now, opinions differ very much as
to the besl way in whicli to treat it for
this meal. Nine out of every ten people
cut it in half and use a spoon. While
this method is undoubtedly more sightly
than many others, it, to mv mind, quite
destroys the real flavor of the fruit. It
also has the uncomfortable habit of
spattering juices. This may be somewhat overcome if an orange-spoon with
a nurrow bowl Is used, but tbe best
way is to remove the core and loosen
the pulp from the skin, so each section
may be lifted oul Intact.
Probably the neatest method of orange eating Is tu remove the skin entirely, get off all the pith with a sharp
knife, then separate Into sections, If
lhu fruit has many seeds, they should bo
unioved before they reach lhe mouth.
An orange Icnlfc with jugged teeth and
two small prongs al lhe top is useful
for tills purpose.
The fashion in tropical countries of
paring an orange whole and then eut-
Ing it suspended on a fork Is, to say the
leasl. unsightly, Scarcely less so Is the
sum.-what prevalent hublt'of cutting lhe
fruit in lengthwise unneeled sections,
holding an ond in each band and eating
from the skin. If Burns had ever seen
a woman In the procoss of thus disposing of an orange, his appeal to "pome
power" for lho gift nf seeing ourselves
US ol hers see Us Would httVo butm even
more impassioned.
As a rule, oranges arc served whole in
n fruit dish or basket, llie deep orange
tints bringing out lhe paler colors of
less strongly toned fruits. Then- are,
however, several dainty and novel ways
of preparing oranges   for  BOlllO   special
 ■: bin - a children's party, for instance.
im- of thrsr. ts tn have a platler
edged with large green leaves, from
which appear oranges eul lu represent
water lilies. CUI Hi" peel lengthwise
Intu narrow notul-shnped neollons to
wllhln un Inch ur su uf tin- Indium,

Hi * ll Thon romovo lho core and Bopa«
rale iln- o I'll Ugo Iuin ihi different natural divisions, Or ihe orangi mav be
lell whole, ihe place fm* ilu- coro being
lined wiib candied cherries,
Another  and simpler arrangement  Is
to draw a line around ih mire of the
rind and turn hack each half. Nat-
urally, these both must he prepare.] at
the lasi possible mlnuto, or tlio fruit
dries mil.
Orange baskets give an attractive
touch to a formal lunclu'iin or dinner
iiililo. either lo hold a salad or sweeis,
Score Die rind a llltle almvo Hu* con-
ire, leaving aboul an Inch space mi
either side to form Hie handle. Then
make two transverse cms on each side
of this space. Romovo Ihe Iwo sections
nf rlml. scoop out iln pulp wiih great
rare nnd throw lhe basnet into Ico water to erlsp.
These   baskets   llfn   exlremelv   prellv

Jelly.    Pistachio mils can bo scattered
OVl'C   It    light -eulnred   jelly,    while    lh"
darker may be garnished wiih shredded
almonds, or with whipped cream.
Orange SOU file, orange Ice with can
dled cherries In It o. orangi Bavarian
cream, all are appropriately served In
these buskets; also French' vanilla Ico
cream,  garnished  wilh  candied  orange
eel or violets.
Sometimes the two halves nf the
orange skins are use.'., lllled with an
Ice or charlotte russe, and tlod logeth-
er with a pale yellow nbbon or with
asparagus vine.
When salad Is served in the orange
skins the handle is omitted and but
the one half used Tils may be set on
a bed of fresh watercress,
A pretty dessert is to have a melon
mould of vanilla Ice en am. sui rounded with the halves of small navel
oranges that have been dipped In boiling* syrup ami jell'nd A circle nf
whipped cream is massed on the outer
edge.   A round platter should be used.
Or the Ice cream mav be frozen in a
circular mould, the centre piled with
raw sliced oranges and the Whipped
cream served in a separate sauce boat
or howl.
Wine or lemon Jelly makes a pretty
dessert when moulded with oranges.
Take six small seedle»" oranges, peel
them, remove every particle uf the
pith, separate fn sections and remove
the skin if it can be done without
mashing the pulp. Fill the bottom of
the mould with a lltth jelly, let It
grow cool enough to hold, cover with
the sections of oranges. Pour on more
jelly, let it set, add another layer of
the fruit, and repeat till the mould is
full. When cold, serve with whipped
cream heaped uround it
The gelatine should b» kept liquid
till wanted by putting lt in a pitcher
and standing ii in o dish of boilini;
water. This fruit jelly [a somewhat
tedious in preparation ar.d. should he
started early in tho day Remember,
all jelly stiffened in th.* ice chest loses
its flavor, so avoid it whenever the
weather permits.
A novel way to serve nranges Is to
Ice  them  till  they  look   like balls  of
snow. Remove the skin and pith and
run a thread through the centre of
each orange. Make un Icing of whites
of egg and confectioners' sugar, allowing two eggs to a pound of sugar.
R**at till quite smooth. Dip In each
orange separate!). fasten them to a
stick, place the stick across a very
conl oven and let them remain till
dry. The oranges should be well
coated and smoothed with a palette
The following thoroughly tested
recipes of a well-known caterer aru
interesting ways in which oianges
may be prepared for dessert.
Fried Oranges.
Take as many oranges as required
(navel preferred), peel and cut cross-
Wise, roll In flour and fry to a gulden
brown in butter. Dust With powdered
BUgar and cinnamon and place ou

Serve with hard sauce.
Orange Meringue Pie. '

following cream: Stir In a vessel si*
yolks of eggs, three ounces of sugar,
one ounce of cornstarch, the Ju.ce of
eight oranges and grated nnd of one,
nnd three-quarters pint of water.
Place the mixture on fire, keep stirring
until it begins to boil, remove, beat in
one ounce of butter, ornament the top
with meringue icing of ary appropriate designs. Sift with powder-,l

One day Little Growling Bird and Aunihk, the Crow, were poking .round among the
rushes hoping to find the Pcp-egwun, or music-whistle, they had lost some time belore. Green
Frog, who had grabbed and carried it away at the time, was sifting on > lily-pod with the
whistle m his mouth. Il looked like rain, so he lelt a strong desire to pipe up and make some Irog
When Little Growling Bird heard die trilling .ound he knew it was Ihe lost whistle «nd
tried lo see who it was that was blowing it. Sure enough, there was Green Prog puffing out hi.
tliroal and blowing with ail his might! Suddenly the deep hoarse voice ol N.hbay O-muk.
kukee, the Bullfrog, boomed out, culling: "Oondaus! Oondsus! Nahdin Pep-egwun!"—
"Come here I Come here! Bring whistle!"
So they kept very quiet and wiited to see who would happen. Green Frog heard it, too,
•nd quickly swallowed the whistle, hiding it in the big pouch in hi. throat. Then he looked >s
innocent is you please.
Meanwhile, Big Bear htd also heard the ull and, thinking it was Little Growling Bird,
came lumbering alo.g to see what hi. Ilnle friend wanted
Alter a little while Green Frog coughed up the whistle and blew another shrill blast:   "Prip. pir-r-r-r-r-np!" he trilled. Bii: Bearatarted toward
the place where he thought the sound came Irom and poked his nose here and there trying *.o hntl the musician.   Little Growling Bu-d and Aundak
peeked through the reeds and saw him nosing around.   "Sh-h-h1" whisperer! Aundak, "he thinks WE are calling hin.1"
"Let's keep very quiet," said Little Growling Bird, "and when he sets closer we'll unrip out an.! scare him."
Now Nahbay O-muk-kukce, the Bullfrog, thought HE would go and investigate the source cf the whistling also: so he dived and swam under
water (he can swim faster that w-ay) until he came right under lhe nose of Big Bear, who was, just then, taking a dnnlc.
Now the O-muk-kukee-wug, the Frog-People, will grab at any small, red object that catches their eye. They will even jump up and Kite a bit
ol red flannel on a fish-hook, thinking, perhaps, that it is a bug or butterfly, or something good to eat.
So. when Bullfrog saw the bright red tongue ol Big Bear in the water, in Iront of his nose, he didn't stop to find out what it was. but grabbed
hold of it at once!
WOW! What a row there was when Big Bear saw the round, goggle-eyes of Bullfrog right in his lace and lelt the cold, clammy mouth holding on to his tongue!  He roared with Iright and disgust and quickly knocked Bullfrog llying back into the water with a stroke oi his big paw.

Brigade Turns Out in
Quick Time.
A lire alarm wai turned in by telephone to No. 1 Fire Hall by central at
7:45 Thursday evening, the telephone
olliee having received a call from the
Hotel Revelstoke. For some reason,
and mistake the al inn was not given
to No. 2 Fire Hall, and on receipt of
ihe intelligence No. 1 brigade responded quickly, and in a lew minutes had
a team hitched on to the apparatus
and hurried to the scene of tl.e fire.
On their arrival atthe hotel, it was
found that an over heated due had
ignited some of thc wood work round
the chimney, hut the Are had been
extinguished a lew minutes belore the
brigade arrived. Considering the distance frum the hotel and the time
necessary to procure a team, the boys
turned out in very smart time. Tlio
ilain'ge dune lo the root of the hotel
amounts to nothing.
