Communication Effected —Revelstoke Will Benefit Again
by Enterprising Citizen.
On all sides we sec evidences ol Unenterprising and persevering clinracter
for which the citizens of Revelstoke
havo ever been famed, Few cities there
arc, in the province, who possess even
half as many modern conveniences
and improvements as is possessed by
Revelstoke, not only in handsome
business buildings mid residence., well
const uctcd sidewalks, recreation
grounds, institutions and transportation facilities, but in such beneficial
and necessary adjuncts to a city, as
electrio light, water supply and telephone system, Tho two former now
are tho property of tl.e city, thc latter
still in the hands of ils enterprising
promotor, Wm. Cowan, who ie perhaps
the first pioneer in the work of modernizing Revelsloke aud who is primarily responsible for tbe carrying out
of all then* three splendid institutions.
Tl.e telephone system is without
doubt ono of the best and most valu-
al le innovations that our city can
boast of and it has been entirely due
to the untiring efforts and energetic
persistence that we have today one ol
the beet telephone systems in tbe
province, Mr. Cowan has still further
shown the spirtt of enterprise, not
only for his own benefit but ohiefly Ior
the benefit ol Revelstoke, in the construction ol the telephone line to
Arrowhead, a distance of 28 miles.
The work has been curried out with
considerable expense and labor, but
today we can enjoy perfect communication by speech along the new line.
What this will mean both to Revelstoke and Arrowhead is only too plain,
as telephones have a great deal to do
with Hie transaction of business, and
now this flourishing neighbor of ours
will be in immediate touch with the
centre ol commerce here and our
mutual prosperity will in every way
increase. Mr. Cowan, president of the
Revelstoke, Big Bend and Trout Lake
Telephone Co., is to be higlily congratulated and complimented on the
success ol llis undertaking.

Moosejaw, who commence! operations

owna, and embraces a strip ot land
lying between Okanagan and Long

Lonoon, Nov. 23.—An interesting
rumor was current in the lobby of the
bouse ol commons tonight to the el-
feot that James Bryce, the author of
■'The American Commonwealth," and
now cliief secretary for Ireland, is
likely to fill the vacant sn.ba'sa.lor-
ship at Washington. No conformation
of this rumor can be obtained, and il
ia believed that, the government lias
not yet decided the matter, but tliis
suggestion falls in with the growing
feeling in high quarters here that the
Wiishiiigti.il embassy should be filled
by a man of exceptional weight, who
possesses, in addition to political influence, a sympathetic, understanding
of the American people,

Outlook for a Gay
-Good for Trade.
On Wednesday last Messrs D.
Woolsey, T. Kilpatrick, R. Howson
and G. S. McCarter, of Revelstoke, and
Geo. P. Wells, ol Nelson, completed
the sale to St. Paul capitalists of 34
square miles ol timber lands on Cherry
Creek, east ol Vernon. The tract was
about three months ngo located by
Mr. Woolsey and Mr. S. Hill and is
one ol the finest in the interior of
British Columbia, being estimated to
carry seven hundred million feet of
cedar, fir and white pine ol excellent
quality. The price paid was away up
iu six figures and the parties benefitting by the deal are all local men —
consequently, this deal is ol more real
importance to the district than any
other large timber deal thnt lias yet
taken place here, as all the money remains here with men who are foremost
in assisting by their capital and brains
in developing this part of the interior.
The purchasers are to be congratulated upon securing such an excellent
holding and the gentlemen who have
sold out and who still have extensive
holdings in this pait of the province

also is carried out with  no small
anroyance and danger to pedestrians.
It is however, understood that coasting may be indulged in on the roods,
without the least inconvenience to the
public, as well as the least danger to
the coasters.  This winter promises to
he an exceptionally good one lor all
kinds of sport, curling, skating, snow-
shoeing, hockey, sleighing parties and
coasting.   Coasting parties (or grown
ups have formerly been of nightly
occurrence   during    tl.e moonlight
winter nights, and the sport bids fair
to become  popular here this season.
Good  winter weather with plenty of
snow,  the rink running overtime and
something doing every evening, is
good for trado and the community at
large.   Revelstoke is  prospering and
the coining winter should tie a gay one.

SATURDAY, NOV. 24, 1906
For some reason or other, known
only to the perpetrators of the offence,
a report bus been industriously circulated to the effect that a certain
prominent local government ollicial
wns a probable candidate in .lie opposition interests at the next local
provincial elections. We have authority to say that no government ollicial
in the Revelsloke riding has any
intenthn or desire ol becoming a candidate nnd that the parties circulating
Btich a report will do well to bear in
mind the lact that like nil other falsehoods, this has been circulated to
injure the person whose name was
connected with it.
The"T<ventieth Century lor Canada"
has oft been nutted and the Canadian
people have time and ngain had this
teaching instilled into their minds.
Without a doubt, in reviewing the
history of Canada in years past nnd
following up the events which have
one by one led ber to tbe position of
prominence whicli she holds today, it
can easily be seen how we deserve tbe
title, not only hy dogged persiatance
but also by shrewd business capabilities, and to such an extent have we
today pushed forward and upheld our
claims and possibilities thnt practically every nation hns been forced to
don her thinking cap and consider
what attitude she shnll adopt to obtain
a share in the riches and prosperity of
this fair western country. For the
last year or two Urinsh Columbia has
been, one might say, tbe most prominent of any province in the Dominion and this position lias been attniued
by the enterprise of her people and by
the wonderful lesources of which she
has truly a vas! store. These treasures
both of the forest snd of the mines
have lured outside ciijiital into our
midst aud once started the stream will
not easily I-e turned. There ap|ieais
little doubt that British Columbia is
on the eve of a great boom, not one,
that like a bubble, will swell and then
burst, but a steady, solid gradual increase. The grui! timber resources
are being exploited in response to the
call for lumber, Revelstoke basal-
ready felt the benelit and will continue lo do so seeing that she is lhe
centre ol such a vast urea of forest
land. To the mst lies millions of acres
of treeless country fast filling up with
people, who mu.t have lumber anl
who must look to us for it.
The mineral resources are being
developed .md the results are proving
boundless. These things are becoming known .nnl inquiries for farm
lands, timber areas and mining pr*
perties are Cnii.ing in from all side.
The north, the coast and especially
the interior are mi attracting capita
and settlers. Railroads, always quick
to realize a situation, .tr..- building int
and through the province, which
means money nu'i pi i
Western men who have been to tlie
east and returned, st.t.- Unit the
people back there want to know about
our resources und our i-liinale nud
wben people set out t" learn about
britisli Columbia, much lm- been bc
cuinplii-hcd because the most orlti il
investigation will only pruve iln
desirability ol the province lor tho
settler or the capitalist. If our public
lands shall be conserved to the public
interest and our private enterprise!
conducted on a sound basis and go-l
principles the results cannot but he
successful snd harmonious,  To bring
about a profitable ami satisfactory
result from the commercializing
our resources, government! and men
must keep their loads. Capital ia
coming, people are coming and let us,
here in Revelstoke endeavor to lead th
stream through our gateway to the
interior, when we know tbe possibilities are so great,
Our fruit lands ure proving a marvel,
our mining resources are praclicnlly
iuexbaustable and are proving stores
ot wealth, and II Ihe steady, dogged
work nf tbe last few years is continued
the new comers will catch the enthusiasm and the results will lie almost
beyond human iiumaginatiun,
specially uiiii.iii'i. to 11 n.im , in*.*, .* ,.,
Ilevelstoke. Por a city to run smoothly und without any Internal sedition
it requires the careful judgment ol
those under whom the administration
ol such city is conducted and also n
certain amount of tact on tbe part of
the citizens both as a whole and as
individuals. We certainly do not
object   to  those  who  desire   to live
mmigst us, and who are willing to
accept and Inlfll the obligations of
citizenship, and who enter into business Illegitimately and peacefully, be
hey ol any European nationality, but
what we do most strongly object to is
iim dangerous, shiftless nnd doubtful
wanderer who drops in from nobody
knows whore, and straightway starts n
systematical campaign of begging;
begging in more than one Betisc of the
word, to the annoyance of our peaceful minded citizens and to the possible
detriment of the harmony of the city
itself. Such men are a source of danger and trouble, causing perhaps dis-
SOUtion in our midst, and outraging,
perchance, all the moral Iiiwb which
are so necessary to the reputation ol a
city. Tlie law is exercised and often
carried out to its limit over those who
belong to this community, wliu have
acted in disobedience to tbe laws of
city und country. Such punishnwnt
very often will prevent the further
repetition of these defaults. Rut if
the punishment meted out to these
iiii-ii is deserved, bow much more
should the uttermost sentence of the
law be carried out against those who
drop in and create turmoil and dis
tur banco, commit acts ot violence and
disregard every moral and civil law of
the country, We should ur.-e that a
very severe lesson b.- taught those who
are convicted of such acts, nnd if a few
ol such gentlemen wen: given a hot
rcceplion its well as a send-off such as
(bey will never forgot, then perhaps
this fraternity will give Revelstoke u
very wide berth as a city where tbey
can get, no change and what all such
characters richly deserve.

Tbe secretary pointed out thai there

sums ol money which have since been
collected, amounting in all to$4,386.66

The secretary then read the following statement from the Medical Superintendents at Revelstoke and Arrowhead, showing the work done during
the year:
Number uf hospital days treat-
large wing on one end ol the hospital
as n largo public Wind, and also to
provide lu-ner accommodation for tlie
iiursts in tlio old wing. H- would
suggest having the new wing made us
nearly lire proof us possible. He
pointed out thut the Ladies' Aid hnd
been urging fur a long timo past, the
placing ol a verandah nround ihe hos-
plnl, but this matter was held off
u i il the erection of a wing was pro
eroded willi, a» it might bc neieseary
when the wing was erected to tear
down some of tlie verandah should it
lie built now, or indeed that tbo whole
design ol the Verandah might prove
unsuitable lor the new wing when the
plans were finally approved. He
Btnted, the satistactorv financial statement that wus presented to the Board,
be thought, made it quite feasible to
proceed with the erection of tliis new
wing early in tlie spring, and have it
oompleted next year. Mr. Kilpatrick

The president then moved the adoption ol the report, nml in doing so,
stated that it was his ploasnre to congratulate tlie society on having a surplus in their funds for the first time.
He pointed out, however, that there
were very good uses to which the
money could be put, nnd that In particular, he considered thiitt.be enlargement of the hoHpitai at Revelstoke

that it is quite apparent to any constant visitor to the hospital that our

% Self-Improvement JSfil
ONE of lhe subjects that the majority of the girls i;
our new organization have asked for la thnt It
shall stand for "self-improvement." I daresay
each girl who asks for this has a different lea na
to whnt form she would like the self-improvement to take,
lind I would like very much to have a few specifications.
J suppose there lh no one of us who does not wish to Improve herself. If thero Is, she Is In a very bad way. When
we get to the point that ve think we cannot be Improved
upen we are possibly very comfortable, but we havo
stopped growth.
Every now and then we see an evidence of thnt .sort of
thing 1 recollect a man I used to know as a young girl
who bad a line scorn for all educatlonul advantages beyond a working knowledge of the "threo It's." Ho was
much Irritated when he found that his son, a boy rf IB,
had tnken a subscription at the library and passed .nnny
ot his eVonlngB In the reading room there. "I'll pul a stop
to that," be declared, "I've got no use for books. I never
bad an education myself, and If I had It wouldn't have
helped ine to sell cloth any better." (He wiib a cloth merchant.)  "1 don't hold to nil this studying over books."
If I am nut mistaken, be died n poor mnn, His lack of
education was nol such n potent aid in business, after all.
But that sort of man Is an exception. 1 am Inclined to
think that nearly all Americans long to Improve theu-
■elves In every way that they can, 1 know that my girls
do, If I enn Judge from Ihe letters they send me. The only
trouble seems to be In knowing JUBt how to do It.
1 bad fl lettrr the other day that Illustrated this -mint.
A young girl wrote to me from a little country town. i.he
bad had only a country school education, mid she desired
to go beyond what she had learned there. There wns a
good library In ber town, and she wanted to know how to
Improve herself with the assistance of this library. What
should she read?  Would I send her a list of books?
That was a hard question to answer. It was like .isklng
how much it would con to build a house, (without mentioning if the house were to bo of wood, brick or stunc; If
It were to contain four rooms or forty. So I wrote and
asked the girl ln what line she was particularly Interested;
Jf she wished to know something of ancient or of ..lodcrn
history, and If bj, of which countries; If she preferred
fiction to fact, and the likt. With such knowledge that
one enn advise more intelligently.
And so 1 usk you girl,-- who wish for self-Improvement
whal especial line you wish to uike.   Do you mean study
Mrs. Herriclc's Department ol Questions and
Answers— Helps for Correspondent,
of literature or of history, of art, of music, of current
events, of social conditions, of philanthropic wor1*:, of
science, of nature, of what? You must, each of you, have
some bent- What is it? When you have made up your
mind to this the way for growth and Improvement '■» cpen
to you.
Our organlratlon Is going to help all you girls almg
these lines, In the first place, talking It over among yourselves will be of great benefit. I heard lt once said of a
man Hint hc "thought with his lungs." It was not said
In a complimentary way, but 1 think myself that It Is a
very helpful way to think. When you talk out things Jt
nld« you to put vour own ideas Into form and to accept
this am! reject that, So it is going to be n big assistance
In crystallizing plans when all, or some of you girls, get
together personally or on pnper and decide how you are
to pel about tho work of self-Improvement.
Then, another way in which our association r,;i] be of
advantage is in providing you with companions In your
work. When once you girls have talked things over a bit
yon will lind that one group of you wish to study one
thing, and one another. Here Is a set of girls who are
crazy about art and artists. Perhaps some of them wish
to study art some day nnd become painters or Illustrators.
Or perhaps they only love pictures, with no thought of
making them themselves, Hut tbey all wish to rend about
tho great painters, to follow out their lives, to study up on
this one or thnt, tracking him all through his career by
means of biographies, as w-dl ns by Hctlon, thnt may Lave
been written nbout him. They want to know hlm In his
life and In IiIb art Can't you see a knot of such girls
taking up Rembrandt or Titian or Raphael or Michael An-
gelu or one of the more modern painters and studying
about him?
Or.perhaps, some of the other girls are eager over American history. Tbey long to know nbout the Colonial days,
and will pore ove* sucn a book as Hawthorne's "House
of the Seven Gables" and wonder what lt Is all .ibout.
There Is plenty for them tc study, ond they will form a
history clngB among themselves. Or some one else Is Interested ln the French Revolution, that has been brought
so close to us of late by comparisons in the papers between that and the revolt In Russia. They would like to
take some such book as 'The Tale of Two Cities" as a
starting point, and then read all they could lay hold of
about thc Reign of Terror and the days when the guillotine ruled In France. That will lead them to other *.hlngs
In French history—the study of Napoleon, for one, with
nil tbe delightful literature and drama and nrt that cluster nbout him—and they have bad the door opened for
them into another world.
Possibly thero nre girls who nre less ambitious than
this, They sav, some of them—1 have had letters from
them—"I was too busy to do much school work. I lad
to go to earning money too early. Now I am >lder and
have more time, and I would like to make up some of the
things I missed when 1 was n child." Fur them, too, there
should be help In our organization. There are enough of
them to form n branch for Improving their writing, their
spelling, their grammar and theli familiarity with many
simple things.
Do you see how it is going to be, girls? What arc you
going to do? Does your line lie In uny one of these directions, or In some other that I have not mentioned? How
do you wish to Improve yourself, each one of you? Lot me
hear from all of you. There will surely bo enuugu of each
kind to form circles within circles,
"But," says ono of them, "I have so little time. All
this sounds ns If lt would take a great deal. I have my
work to do, and I can't give myself up to study."
My dear child, of course you can't! No one expects
you to do It. Have you any idea of what can be done with
A Suggestion for "Scribbler"
Dear Mrs.   Herrick:
In looking over your page nothing Interested me ag much as
fwr dlicouraged "Scribbler's" letter. Owing to a misunderstand-
n»t wllh u girl trlend, I was thought to bo wholly In the wrong,
Ktui so I can heartily sympathise with the feelings of "Scribbler," thut no one cared (or me. Like her, I lind I have a few
friends that 1 think are ■true blue," yet there is always that
feeling thut l wonder if they are sincere and lt they really care
for me. It lms been a Httle over a year since my experience, und
1 uv, ' Make new acquaintances every time," un.l if any of the
old friends show that ihey want to continue the old friendship.
keep llieni by all means, In experiences like this we lind out
Who are our true friends.
If "Scribbler," ub she calls herself, wants to Improve herself,
ran 1 be of any assistance to her by her writing to nu- personally,
and In thut way get composition, writing, etc., all together? She
urn write me on any subject, and If she Is In another Stale than
I hi* there ir.ay be many place-*, etc, one mighi like to ask nbout,
antl il would prove much more interesting coming direct from
one pert on to another. Convey my message to her, and if I can
bt ol any use will be glad to help you or your glrla in any way.
L, It. H.
Here Is a suggestion which "Scribbler" can answer tor
herself, 1 am glad thai she and "L. R. H." have found
u point in common, and yet I do not like to hear old
friends spoken of too carelessly. The new ones are very
well, but one cannot lightly break away from old -vies.
Be very sure of tbe unworthlness of the friend and your
own lack of fault before you condemn unreservedly. And
be sure, too, that there Is not only a little misunderstanding that cuuld be cleured by explanation.
for pointing out to you that It might be worse. You have
tbe home, at least, and you are able to keep it up. You
huve resources fn yourself. You are a pianist, you say,
and you have a love for study. You write a good letter.
Do you ever stop to think how much worse off you would
be If you did not have these things In yourself? The love
of books provides one with a way to escape for a time
from one's troubles, and the love for music does as much
or more.
But thut does not mean to Imply that your lot is not
a hard one, Only, you must not get discouraged. You nre
young vet, and you never know what may happen. A big
part of the world lies before a girl of 81. You may peel
a man you cure for und who cares for you, and he may
be able to contribute numcthing towurd the support of the
family and thus lighten tbe burden of your sister. If he
is lb" right sort of man be will consider it a privilege to
do this. Your circumstances may brighten In many o -er
ways, You ask what you are to do with your life. I
should say to go abend and do the best you can. losing no
chance of self-Improvement. Try to go out a little, if you
think It will make you happier. I acknowledge that it is
hard for n woman to feci happy when she ts not well
dressed, But there are associations In which dress counts
for little.   Can you not nvet with persons of that type?
Above nil, remember, my dear child, that all this hard
time should be making you stronger, finer, better, more
helpful, more sympathetic. The time may come whon you
wiil lcok beck on 1: with thankfulness for the patience
and courage you gained ln the struggle. Let me hear
from you again.
Ask Your Instructor
Dear Mrs. Herrick:
I am li yeara of age, and have been taking lessons on a cornet two months, and my Instructor tella me of a young lady
who pluys the same Instrument and he says If I could get acquainted with her sift- could help me quite a little.
Please (ell me how I could get acquainted, as I don't like to
ask mv Instructor to introduce us, Thanking you ln Advance,
I remain WAITING,
There is no reason why you should not secure an ntro-
ductlon through your Instructor. 1 can think of no better way.
A Letter From a Man
Dear Mrs.   Herrick:
This may seem to you most uncalled for, but nfter rending
your paper, in which you give advice to your girls to assume the
dignity which becomes n woman on or on* the street. I cannot
resist saying a word or two. I am a young man, una have observed that there exists at the present day among the young
Wan:: to be a Nurse
Dear Mrs. Herrick:
I am a young girl of 20. now employe,) in the suit department
Of tne of the city's Inrge stores. I huve been there two years,
•nd as I have had no promotion I feel rather dissatisfied,
For many years I have thought of being a nurse, and only
went Into tbe store until my age would penult my training for a
I want to know where would be the best place to train and
how to make my application j that is, do I have to have a doctor's
influence, and, also, Jc I have to have a knowledge of foietgn
anguages ?
What is the required age. and do you have to pass a -lector's
•Mt-.tiiif.alh:.? Respectfully, E. T   S.
I have bad a numoer of
letters on this subject, and
I give the same advice lo
you that I have to .hose
who have asked for personal
answers. Your best plan ts
to go to a good hospital In
your own city and find out
details. Ask for the bead
nurse and have a talk with
her, or tlnd out what you
wish to know from your
family physician. I say this
because the rules vary In
different hospitals. In some
cities 21 Is the minimum uge
for a woman to enter as a
student; in others It s 23
and 24, and an effort Is being made to raise It. In
some private hospitals glrla
are admitted even younger
than 21. The conditions vary
also. Some hospitals p.y
nurses a little something
from the first; in otherB the
nurses work some weeks
without pay. A knowledge
of foreign languages Is desirable, but 1 do not ihlni;
It Is obligatory. A nurse's
health must be good and she
muBt have no serious organic complaint.
Don't Get Discouraged
Iwur   Mrs.   Herrick:
My letter Is a long one, still I hope you will read It
through to the very end, for to-night I feel that 1 must
empty my heart  to you.
J am 21 years old and am not very strong, nnd the very
serious question rises before me with a deep earnest ntn, "What
•hall I do with my life?"
I had a hurried course through the grammar sch.->nl, and
With a great love for study won for myself a high mark before graduating. Kor the last seven years my father has
been an Invalid, unable to do even light work, Ho, you sec, ull
my great desire to go further In study could not be considered,
Shortly after graduating 1 waa placed in a position by a friend,
at piecework, where the pay wae very good, und I um In the
sume business bouse still-
1 im the oldest of the family, and a great burden reste
upon my shoulders. Lately, however, my younger sister ii
working, thus lightening mv thoughts in every way. We-
my sister and myself-are farced to deprive ourselves of not
only what we want but what we need; and that means a great
drill to  a  girl,   you know!
1 have my little dream, as do other girls, and have often
wondered, if I had a chance to marry, placing myself in a nice
borne (a chance that 1 hive not), what would become of my
poor father  and  mother,  who,   when  I  was belpleea and de-
ffiident, tolled to keep me In comfort And could I be really
appy knowing that my young sister was left to battle on
Alone ln the field I chose to forsake ?
You will say I am a brave girl and all that, but where Is
tbe encouragement? Such a life grows heavy after yeara. and
It li hard to ask a girl In my place what she lu going to do
with ber life, What can eh* do? Her hands are tied. What
la her place In society? Her drees Is sbubby! Her friend's ia
not! Can she enter with a happy amlle nnd light, Joyous manner
when her heart is breaking within her?
I have grown old-fashioned and settled—do not care to go
•out—too tired when work ie over. Am sick a great deal. I
leal that I wllh to make something of myself. I am a pianist,
can do many things other girls cannot, and I pass my evenings all at home.
Can you tell me what lien at the end of my path and where
will it end?  What can I do with my tlftfT -.
Don't you think I nm doing a great deal? M.
Yes, my dear, I do think you aro doing n great deal.
rou have a bard life, and perhaps you will not thank me

Suggests "Good Cheer"
Mv Dear Mrs. Herrick;
I think lhat this organizing of ibis corresponding club a grand idea, for there are
so niun*! lonely girls in this world, and I
do not think there arc many things a girl
likes bett.-r than corresponding.
The name that I think of Is "Uood Cheer."
The object, do a kindness to aome ono
every day. which could be used as a motto;
also the badge, I think a sliver "U. C.
(something like the "C. E-") pin would be
very neat, and the colors, If any, be green
and cream.   Very truly yours,     J. M. A.
"The Golden Rule"

My great admiration of the delightfully

thia excellent girls' organization. I hi-llevu
Mrs. Wlggs' life was governed by tho
Golden Hul.. eh.- was must tactful, kind

Tho "Golden Rule," of course, for the
motto, and a gold two-Inch rule for a budge,

This Is a wny in which Wo could combine
fun, self-culture and practical aid. My

its only merit is Its feasibility. Still, il

"Cultivating Our Minds"
Dear Mra.   Herrick:
May 1 offer these suggestions?

have for Its object Helf-dcvelopmeiit. tW«

What Shall it Be?
only a liitle time each day? Have you heard of the "Fif-
tccn-MInute Clubs,'' of which thc members give but fifteen minutes nplece a day to some selected line of work?
fnc of the best educated men I ever knew said that 'n the
midst of a busy life he kept his French fresh by reading
It f<>r ten minutes a day. If you determine systematically
to give fifteen minutes a day to any one subject you will be
Astonished to see how much progress you will have nUde
by ilif end of n month. There are popular courses of
reading that demand half an hour a day, and that cover
nn Immense quantity of ground In a yenr. If nny of ynu
wllh tn know more cf these, send me a stamped and et-lf-
oddressed envelope for further information.
Put it isn't 'o be nli study. Bless your heart, no!
There's a lot <»f talking goes with It. Rut not rmpty talk.
Talk that Is the result of what you have been rending and
thinking. Number*- of persona don't know how to think.
If you will mnke up your minds to rend about a subject.
Ihink nbuut tt and will then discuss It with others whi are
interested in It, you will be surprised to tlnd how It stimulates your brain. It will help ynu to think more by .lightening your own Ideas and giving yuu the thoughts of
others; to say nothing of the fun of meeting nnd kn< w-
ing a lot of new girls nnd forming pleasant friendships
with them!
Pome nf ynu may net be near enough together to meet
with great frequency, but the correspondence clubs are
for ihem. it Will really be a great benelit to them to put
their thoughts into written speech, nnd the friends who
pre firmed by letter are hardly less Interesting than those
you have met fare to face. I, who know so many of you
by your letters, am in a position to speak authoritatively
on the subject.
There nre scores of other sorts of Improvement. We
haven't touched upon tbe Improvement of the health, as
yet-that will require a talk all to Itself—or on the improvement of manners or of social gifts or of the many
other nays In wnlch benefit is awaiting us. I am eager
to learn from you what line Is thnt in which you are
most Interested Let me know ond let us get about the
formation of our classes and clubs and circles as soon as
we enn,
people a "something" that Is not akin to ladylike or gentlemnnly
virtues, and thera seems to be no remedy, except for those who
realize the danger to discard thnt element from their society.
By this method one generally hus to cut his or ber associate
list, and this is very hard. The question here arlseB, What Is
one to do? I, for one, have acted as ubove mentioned I have
decided the quicker you rid yourself of such associates tbe better.
Taking It all In all, the fault Is about evenly divided between
the sexes. I don't think there is any difference, whatever. And
I am sure that If the girls who allow themselves to net ns If thev
were powerless to resist the approaches of men would. Instead,
hold themselves aloof and keep men ut arm's length they would
be more womanly women, and thev would be more e-iit-emnl when
they become the wives of men.      ONE OF YOUR READERS.
How many of my gins agree with the young man? I

Will "Scribbler" Answer This?
Drnr Mrs. Herrick:
J have often thought my lot in life Is worse thun any one
else's, but when I started to read the letters that you receive I
quickly found out the contrary.
1 shall not tire you with my troubles. They ure similar to
the girl that signed herself "Scribbler."
I would like to correspond with "Scribbler" If she Is willing,
nnd I ihink, perhaps, we might help each other a little. At
least, we can sympathize with each olher. My experience with
young men has been similar lo "Scribbler's." I hnve found
them foolish and soft. So, as I am still young, nnd I think there

OP COURSE, you boys and girls
all  know  bow   to   play   jack-
stones.   Hut yuu may not know
all the games that can be played
with Jackstones.
Do you know "Cats in the Well," for
Instance? It is played In the following
Roll the Jacks from the hand to the
ground; these are lhe cats.
Then place your left hand near them,
with the first lightly closed, the thumb
nnd first linger forming the opening to
one well.
Jack may now be thrown up, and,
while he is In the air, one of the four
cats on the ground must be picked up
and put ln tho well.
Repent the operation with tbe second, third and fourth cats until all
have been drowned In tho well. The
left hand may now be taken away,
leaving the dead cats In a bunch.
Now Jack may be tossed up, and
this time all four cats must be picked
up before Jack comes down.
Hero is a game played with a ball,
called "Black Baby." Do you know
It Is a Jolly, noisy game, and must
be played ou level, soft ground.
Make holes, one for each player,
nbout three feet apart and all In a
line. Kach boy must stand by and
guard his particular bole, while tbo
boy at one end tries to roll the ball
(use a common hollow India-rubber
ball or a soft yarn ball, covered with
leather) slowly along tbo line of the
boles, so that It will drop iuto the
hole at the extreme other ond.
If he succeeds, then tho boy at the
other end tries to roll It back to hlm
ln the same manner.
Uut this cannot go on very long
wiih,mi ihe ball falling to go the full
length of lhe line and dropping Into
om< of the many holes between ends.
As soon as this tmppens, all tho
players except the one who guards
tlio hole holding tbe ball scamper
away for dear life, orvlllg "Black
baby! black baby!" while the boy on
guard snatches the ball up and "lires"
ll .is html as he can at the boy be
thinks be can conm nearest to hltllng.
If lm misses the boy, Hmn all ihe
players return to their places, and a
little piece of cual—a "black baby"—
Is put Into the bole that had Just
been guarded.
If, however, he bits the boy, then
tin* boy who was bit must quickly
pick up the ball and "tire" it at some
one else. This Is the beginning of a
wild "crackiiliout," which lasts until
some iui,. unluckily misses and henco
gi Is a "blaok baby."
As soon as any buy gets two "black
babies," be is called "black baby half
The unlucky boy who first gets
three "black babies' must take the
ball, walk to a fence or trpe or wall,
and, resting his left band and right
f'.ol against lhe support (which he
must fucc), must thruw tbe ball over
one shoulder as far as he can behind
Then he must bend his back, resting bis bead against the wall, while
all the other boys take turns pelting
him with the ball, throwing It from
the spot where it lighted after hs
threw It over bis shoulder.
If any boy misses his back, then hf
can seize the ball and pelt the misser,
The Noble Life
True worth is ln being, not seeing;
In doing each day that goes by
Some tittle good—not in the dreaming
Of great things to do by-and-by.
For whatever men say In blindness,
And spite of the fancies of youth,
There's nothing so kingly as kindness,
And nothing so royal as truth.
We get back nur mete as we measure;
We cannot do wrong and feel right;
Nor can we give pain and gain pleasure-
For Justice avenges each slight.
The nlr for the wing of the sparrow,
The bush for the robin and wren,
But always the path that fs narrow
And Btralght for the children of men.

Mrs. Henry Symes' Advice to Correspondents
Brittle Hair
BEING sj uk-awd wllh your orange-
dower i/raun. 1 again venture to
ask your advice. I huve a daughter 15 years old who has a ver) dark
neck, .she hasn't a ver)' '-'ear completion, but compared with her neck, there
Is a great difference. Could ynu tell me
of a bleach or lotlen that Is harmless,
ij-onsldorlng her age" Her hair Is very
dry and at the ends very brittle. It
fluffs up so that sometimes she can
scarcely braid it. I wash It once every
three weeks, sometimes oftener,
I would suggest bleaching your daughter's neck with peroxide of hydrogen.
This is effective and quite harmless. Apply it night and morning with a soft
rag, allowing it to dry on the skin.
You wash your daughter's hair too
often, t'nder the circumstances, once
in four weeks is quite enough. Clin the
ends of her hair with the scissors, shortening It about one inch all over. Then
singe lt. Rub the scalp ana the ends
with a little vaseline twice a week.
Brush her hair a great deal—at least a
hundred strokes a day besides its reg-
tttar dressing.

When fresh fruits seem too much of
a tax upon the digestive organs, the
stewed ones may be substituted, but the
amount of sugar used should be as little

Whenever pimples make their appearance upon the face or body, It Is usually
a sign that the blood needs cooling.
Reducing your diet to vegetables and

The training of the front hair Into a
pompadour has been gone into so fully
recently that there needs only ihe addition to the way to make the pompadour droop upon the forehead, which
sei-ms to be the hardest part of hair-
dressing for many women.
A strip of muslin laid over the pompadour, so that the hair is pushed down
in au even puff upon the forehead,
should be drawn fairly tight and fastened in place. Wear It for an hour or
two at night, or even sleep in It for a
few nlghts-that Is all that Is necessary
to accomplish your ends.
Persistent training may make the
little loose ends ut the back of the
neck stay demurely up In place, but
you are much surer of being Just so
if you wear one of the little unobtrusive  barrettes.
Often, when you put up your hair,
especially if It has lust been washed,
a curious "kink" will make one lock
stick out In an awkward line. The
usual way Is to push It under tho
rest of the hair, trusting to an Invisible hairpin to keep It In subjection.
The better way Ib to take vour hair
down again, and patiently brush
away until the kink resolves Itself
into the smooth surface. Letting it
stay In Is only encouraging your hair

-Ottawa, Nov. 23.—Two cabinet
ministers, Hon. Mr. Fisher and Hon.
Mr. Lemiiux, post-master general addressed s meeting on Tuesday last in
the St. Anne's division, making s
somewhat important announcement
referring to the surplus shown in his
department last year. He said that
it was his intention to utilize it in
giving improved postal facilities to the
Dominion nt large. He would also,
he observed, nt no distant date give
protection tn the Canadian press
against the yellow press ol the southern republic. It would likewise be
his privilege before long to give the
country intellectual preference by
giving British periodicals and newspapers preference, that was to say
cheaper postage in order to disseminate in this country good aud sound
literature and give those in the west
who were coming Iron, tbe British
Isles a little ol what happened in the
old country and the old home.
Within 100 Miles of Vancouver
Tin has been lound within 100 miles
of Vancouver. Such is the startling
announcement irnde by Mr. N. Ger-
haut, who with his partner has just
returnsd from a prospecting trip lasting over two mouths. Mr. Gcihaut
has been p*os|ieeiing and timber
cruising on this coast Ior ninny years.
He has made himsell familiar with
the formations of tliis section ol the
earth's crust as well, perhaps, as any
man who makes a business ol seeking
(or mother earth's treasures. He himself has in the past deprecated the
suggestion that tin could bc bund in
this section of the world. He did not
think that the standing gorernme.it
reward for tbe discovery ol tin would
ever be secured by a Britiih Columbian. Now he is positive that it is
within his gr&sp.
The discovery was made on Desolation Sound. Naturally Mr. Gerhaut
is reticent about going too lar into
details as to location until he and his
partner have complied with all legal
formalities. Mr. Gerhaut speaks wilh
a slightly German accent and some
times uses the German idiom. Speaking of his discovery this morning, he
said: "For a long time I laugh at the

Vakcouvkk, Nov. 23.—Robertson &

situated on the north side ot False

Tuesday evening, when the factory,
moulding rooms, glazing room and
store rooms of the mill were completely gutted. The urigin of the fire
H unknown, but it is believed tu hnve
been caused by a "hot box" in the
machinery in the factory.
It was the second big mill eotillngra-
tiin that has occurred in Vanoouver
in ihe past two months, the other
being the Heaps' lire. The blaze wns
discovered about six minutes past 6
o'clsck in the evening. The alarm
was immediately given, and while one
of the employees rushed to a telephone
to send iu tho alarm to the fire department, utlicr mill hands, including a
number ol tlij Japanese workmen
who reside close by, lost no time in
bringing the mill firo equipment into
^ After tho lirst alarm the whole fire
lighting force turned out and endeavored to centralize the lire and prevent
the conflagration spreading. Not belore tbo whole factory moulding room,
stoie mon. and glazing rooms were
gulled wus the IIro got under.
In reply tu a query as tu whether
the factory would be rebuilt, Mr.
Itutierteon stated that it would be
rebuilt but not on tho lursier site.
It is particularly unfortunate lhat
tho lire should occur at tliis time
when the mill was rushed with work
and many orders were on hand fur
building material. As a result of the
tire between 25 and 30 factury hands
will be thrown nut of employment.
Railroads Applying for Charters to Bay.
Winnipeg, Nuv. 24— Tho Hudson
Bay route to Europe is receiving much
attention at the present time in the
Canadian Northwest. It,will bring
this country a thousand miles nearer
Europe and by the saving in the price
of transportatiun will give the farmers
of western Canada practical cuntrul of
the grain markets of the world. There
is not much question ol the practicability of the route and no better confirmation of .this is needed than the
fact that no less than eight railroad
companies have applied to the Dominion Government for charters lor lines
to Hudson Bay Irom various points in
the interior of Canada. Some ol
these are now being built Iron, the
south and from the west. The Canadian Northern is building a line from
the Prince Albert branch and expect
to hnve it completed in 18 months.
Active construction by tl.e Hill lines
in the direction of Hudson's Bay has
been carried on through the past summer. The Canadian Pacific and the
Grand Trunk railways also have not
been slow to size up the -iiunlion and
will be well to the fure iu the race for
the Bay. It is expected they will
start work in this direction early in
the coming spring.
