Ciiu-aiio, Feb. 22.—The two-cent
railroad lure crusade is sweeping thro
the United States. In nearly a score
of state legislatures bills fixing a maximum passenger rate at two cents a
mile ure pending, nud in most ol them
the liill seems certain to be passed.
Ohio led the way a year ago by

Following is a BUinniniy ol the status
of the 2-cent fare legislation in the
various states:
Indiana—Senate bill making a passenger rate of.2 cents per mile and 2J
centa when collided on trains, passed
house; referred back to senate.
Iowa—Passed house on Tuesday,
now beloro senate railway committee.
Illinois—Bills pending belore house
Kansas—Bill pending in one branch
ol legislature.
Minnesota—Pending before the senate committee on railroads.
Missouri—House and senate both
Nebraska—Bill drafted by joint
house and senate committee; both
houses favorable to bill.
North Carolina—House passed 2-
cent bill; senate considering 2j cent
fare bill.
Pennsylvania—House pasBed 2-cent
bill yesterday; goes to senate,
South Dakota—Bill defeated.
West Virginia—Two-cent fare bill
passed by both houses of legislature.

The interruption of C.R.R. traffic

Ottawa, Feb. 21—In the Commons' Railway Committee a bil! has
been passed for incorporating the Edmonton, Dunvegan and British Columbia Railway Company. The Grand

Trunk Pacific. This bill was introduced by Mr. Duncan Ross. The Bur-
rard, Westminster A, Boundary Railway and Navigation Bill was reported.

The Catholic church was not like any

SATURDAY, FEB. 23, 190"
Apropos of the recent Supreme
Court sitting at Nelson when the
question of a resident supreme
court judge in that city was mooted, the matter is one of extreme
importance to the interior country,
and Nelson. Grand Forks and
other cities are quite alive to this
fact, having already made strong
representations to have their respective claims considered The
pressing need of a resident supreme
court judge in the interior is beyond all question and is a matter
of concern to the general public, as
well as the members of the legal
profession. Although Nelson claims
to be the most central of any interior point it cannot but be at
once seen that since centralization
thoritative circles and apparently
on good foundation, since it has
not been denied by the government
in anyway whatever. It must be
remember'.1 lhat from time lo
time these fees have been increased
which has resulted in the increased
revenue of the province and up till
this occasion no great amount of
objection was raised, it being
understood that this was necessary
to arrange a balance of thc timber
laws and also hy the increased
revenue along with other methods
of taxation to put the country on
a stronger financial basis. Be that
as it may, however, ono of the cliief
points held out by tlie government
in favor of its endorsation in the
recent elections, was that of stable
laws, and since these laws, especially in connection with the lumber
industry, have been approved of by
the people of British Columbia,
who received assurance from the
government that they would not be
further altered, it seems hardly in
accordance wilh the government's
assertion of stable law, to turn
round and commence at the first
opportunity to pass such legislation
as the Province has stated will
certainly be done.
The very fact of the country's
aws being on a solid and stable
basiB has encouraged the bringing
in of capital to the province, and
since capital has to be induced to
come into British Columbia and
indeed into any province, thc fact
of the continual alteration of the
laws will have llie direct effect of
making capital timid. There tire
many small capitalists today, who
under the present condition of
things find tlie license fees quite
high enough and hy raising these
fees the government will do immense harm nnd deal a heavy blow
to the development of the lumber
industry. Millionaires can easily
afford to stand lhe increase, but
their number as compared with the
men of smaller means is few. It is
thought thnt the revenue
derived from these fees will lessen
the taxes of people in general; be
that as it may; but why do harml
to the tirst industry of the country
on this account'.' However, since
the government has promised that
the laws should not be altered, but
be kept stable, which as such, will
induce the inbringing  ol  capital
perous and  content,  nomads  as
thoy are, bred wholly to  war  and
the chase they  have  nevertheless
acquiesced   peacefully  in the new
conditions of life which the onward
march of the white man   has  imposed upon   them,   because   they
imve been treated with justice and
willi what is even more to the purpose, a sympathetic tact.   This h..s
been due in a great measure to the
fortunate circumstances that until
quite recently  Canada waa not a
gold   producing  land;
ever enervated like Africa and the
Southern States ot America with
tlie curse of  servile  labor.    The
Indians had no disposition to work
and were too powerful to he compelled to do  so andj the  settlers
were obliged, therefore, to  depend
entirely upon their own exertions.
Obedience to  law  haB already
been a strikingly Canadian characteristic and it is so still.   It should
be mentioned in passing that the
Canadian Criminal law iB the most
humane, as well as  probably  the
best in the world and the administration of   justice is  inflexible
without being oppressive.   A principal agent in the administration,
is the  North West Mounted Police
whose   record has seldom been
equalled and has certainly never
been surpassed.   It was called into
I'xistnnce when the great wave  of
emigration began, it being  found
absolutely  necessary  to have an
armed force, not only to keep the
Indians in check, but to maintain
order  among the settlers, many of
whom werc not of the law abiding
character and above all to suppress
absolutely   the  trallic  of  drink,
whicli   was  playing  such  havoc
among the tribes.

Ihe geographical location of the latter place,
nor am I acquainted with lhe nutrients used
Dr. Harvey II'. Wiley, chemist for the
United Stales Department of Agriculture, is
quoted as making this statement.
And Dr. Wiley does not deny the allegation. Indeed, he'says frankly, "Them's my
irutimenls!" which may or may not account
for Dr. Wiley's obdurate bachelorhood.
"Of course," he tells you "a man like
myself who has never married cannot pretend
to speak with authority on such subjects as
divorce. Rut I do think that if more attention were paid to the cuisine in the ordinary
menage—if more wives were capable of
giving that department of the domestic machinery intelligent supervision—the divorce
courts could pretty nearly go out of business.
There's more truth than poetry in the theory
Ihal the way to a man's heart is through his
Moreover, if wives all learned to cook,
that dreaded bugaboo, the "servant problem," Dr. Wiley declares, would evaporate.
For making such a broad statement he
gives his reasons here.
NOW Dr. Wiley ls an nuthorlty-probably the gveal-
es. tn America-upon wlint certain funds, under
certain conditions, will do to n man. In the
course of experiments In that direction lie has
presided over many "poison" squads,
He has made tests upon men with good food and other
touts upon lhe same men with had food and compared
results. He understands the effect of food upon weight,
bcdlly temperature and mental temperament. Nothing,
apparently, has escaped. One would, therefore, bo disposed to five weight to nny slatement ln such a direction   that he would enre to make,
"I remember once going to a furmors' instltute-I used
to go to a good many of them," ho snid, "and hearing
s very nice lady rend a very nice paper on how- to keep
husbands at home. We all listened with deep attention
while she told the Indies all about greeting him Willi a
smile nnd always ...king the trouble to dress prettily for
him, nnd, of course, hating the house spotless, nnd seeing that there were fresh llowers ln vases In summer, and
a bright are burning cheerfully on tbe hearth ln winter,
ard so on nnd so on,
"When it was all over, an old lady sluing In ono of
the hack seals aroso and said, "I have been greatly edified
and Interested l.y what Mrs. Blank has said; but I
fnncy I have had more experience In this matter of keeping husbands nt home than she haa, more, perhaps, than
most of you here present-and 1 want to say that ln all
these years or experience I have found that thero la
Just one way, one Infallible rule, beautilul ln Its simplicity, unfailing ln Its application, and that ls-FEED*
"And that old lady wns right. If a man comes homo
to three good meals a dny, good food and plenty of It,
well cooked nml woll served, with a reasonublo deference
to his Individual tnsics-do you think he's going to quarrel with his luck? Why," with deep conviction, "he'd
be a fool!
"But coming home to tho sort of meals that too
many men havo to put up with, becauso their servants,
If they huvo them, don't know how to cook, nnd their
wives don't know how to leach them, they feel a natural human—masculine-human at any rate-doslro to
change their boarding houso, And lhe only way they
can do It is through the divorce mill,
"It la fashionable to deploro the decline of domesticity,
find tho Increuslng popularity of hoarding houso nnd hotel
llfo. It ls customary to shift thc blame for this upon
tho 'servant problem.' As a matter of fact, lhe ducilno
of domesticity is coincident with und propurtionaio lo
the decline of the knowledge nf thc gentle art of cooking,
"Our grandmothers were troubled neither with a 'son--,
ant question' nor yet with a 'divorce problem'—and tho
two are. ln the dual analysis, closely allied—because what
their servants did not know, they wero quniltl.-d to teach
them. And this ability to teach their maids, or course,
Involved lhe ability to do the thing themselves, Hence
the departure ..f n servant wna not quite tbe tragedy that
It Is toduy. Nor was tho mnld who knew how so scarco
thnt her price wus nbovo rubles, so that she wns ever
■oohlng greater and yet ngnln greater compensation for
her services.

own helplessness Hint eie.-ites il servant problem, that
drives their fumllles to boarding house.; and hotels, to tho
eventual loosening or marital Ilea, und Increasing disregard for mnrltnl obligations,

'abandonment,' -cruelly,' 'drunkenness,' mci-c often than

women have to work at all: but this is a country" where
wo all work, and why should women want to neglect so
honorable and necessary an nrt as housewifery in general, and cookery In particular, for tho sordid mouey-
goltlng drudgery of business life?
"Housework of all sorts Is necessary, but most of It,
I ndinit, Is drudgery, and should be performed by servants. In this category I Include running ti sewing machine, washing and Ironing, scrubbing, sweeping, dusting,
making the beds, etc.   None of this work 13 pleasant, and
much of tt Is positively Injurious.
"One would wish
one's womankind to
know very thoroughly h o w these
things should be
done, und to be able
to see that some ono
else docs them. Hut
cookery Is tho
crowning accomplishment of the good
housewife. The well-
being of tlw entire
family depends on il. ethically and economically, as well
ns physlcally-ethlcally, because the state of the human
mtnd, and temper, Is so dependent on tho st.ito of tho
human body; economically, becauso the cook who knows
how can set a much better table-more palatable and
more nutritious, on lho same amount of money-than tho
woman who doesn't
"Every woman should be able to supervise her household. This is especially so of cooking, which I regard
na ono of the highest arts.   In my Judgment, It ranks
above painting, It nj'pcals to the Imagination. And it
certainly does more for the happiness of the human
race than all the other nrts put together.
"Vou may gather that I am very much Interested In
cookery. 1 ani—always have been—am a pretty good cook
myself. I have often said thnt If I wero beginning life
over uguin, and had to make my choico of occupations, I
would choose to be a chef-both lor lovo of lt, and for
the money there is In It.
"As a good chef—and I would be a good one—I could
make a lot moro money than as merely the chief of
Uncle Sam's Bureau of Chemistry. And the artistlo
pleasure of it! For cooking at its best Is a lino art.
while chemistry ls only an exact science—at lenst it ought
to he. but I'm afraid there am times when it ls not.
"Then compare the results! Don't you think that a
thorough knowledge of tbe theory and practice of cookery would add considerably moro to iho sum of human
bajipiness than nny knowledge of chemistry Is over likely
to? And certainly It would go farther than any one
other thing toward abating llio divorce evil. ,
"Apply chemistry to cooking? Oh, yes, to a certain
extent; .lust ns, to a cerium extent, ono applies cooking
to chemistry, It Is n good thing, of course, to know exactly what effect the various cooking processes have on tho
$6,598,272 a Year Boston's Bill for Baked Beans
THERE is no joke about Boston's appetite
for  baked  beans,  although  often joked
nbout. It is a healthy, robust appetite, and
it costs money.
Every year more money is spent in Boston
buying baked beans than would bc required i'or the
purchase of the largest battleship in Uncle Sam's
In time The Hiiguo peace conferences mny do
awny wilh the necessity for battleships, but tho
humble bean, liko the babbling brook, promises to
go on forever.
Think of one city's bean bill amounting to
over 1*0,500,000 n year! Suppose the appetito liko a contagion, and the Boston bean supplants the Philadelphia pie, the Baltimore fried
oyster, the Cincinnati krout and the Chiccgo sausage, King Corn's supremacy in the land would bo
seriously threatened
A FEW nguros will throw n flood of light upon the
brown stream ol the popu'ar edible that la steadily pouring down Boston's throat.
In ID.!!, for example, the gross receipts of
beans In lho metropolis of New England amounted to
us,H barrels of five bushels eaoh, or 31S.CC-J bushels,
This Immense trade In a single article aroused no
especial comment In Boston, but ll wus a source of w'dc-
sprenii, snfir-.ii satisfaction.
Why shouldn't there be satisfaction—contentment with
life in general and the bean situation In particular—1-lnoa
that great hulk of W.rjffl bushels meant 10,991,130 quarts,
weighing 21,931,21.") pounds.
Think nf 10,997 Ions of a savory, steaming, appetising
edible upon the dinner tublo and the lunch counter!
It Is estimated that tho population of Boston Is, ap-
proximately. 668,000; her bean receipts for Uiul were sufficient to give every '.nhabliant, men, women and children-even .....;, a I., arms—thirty-seven quarts or 113
pon...Is of delicious baked beans,
Naturally, the babies did not.appreciate the delicacy
find iiinile no ol.jectlirt.s when their portions went to some
...... else.  Many persons, therefore, got more than their
tl Irty-sevon quarts.
The average price at which tlie wholesale dealers sold
the beano was il.s.. a bushel, bul when they wero sold at
relall to tii- consuming public ihe average price was 12
cents a p-iund.
This meant i grand total nf t4.H9S.3T2 spent for b.

been heard (mm ilnce that year,
11 Is i demand that claims no especial aea.on for Its
own.  Iml l»  busy  villi, the populace from Jsnusry to
various foodstuffs. It Is a good thing, too, to know the nutritive value of various foods. It Is a good thing to know of
the chemical composition of foods, that the elements may
be supplied in approximately the quantities in which Ihey
are required. But one can be a very good cook without
being a very scientific chemist; and one can be a very
scientific chemist without being at all an artistic cook.
"How are we to teach the women? Ah, now you're
getting to the meat of the whole matter. Cooking schools?
Perhaps, but there's no cooking school on earth where a
girl can learn as much as In hor mother's kitchen—If her
mother knows. And there's nowhere on earth where a
servant oan learn as much as ln the household of a
really competent housekeeper.
"But the modern girl ls frequenUy handicapped by
the fact that her mother doesn't know. And the modern
servant lacks training because her mistress is Incapab'e
of training her in nine cases out of ten, not only ln-
capahlo cf training her but Incapable of keeping her up
to tho mark of what she already knows, If perchance any
previous mistress has taught her anything.
"Cooking schools nre a very poor substitute for the
kitchen and the household of a really good housekeeper.
They deal too entirely wllh theory, and cooking ts above
all things a practical art. Oh, 1 know, of course, that
the girls who go to cooking schools have actually to
cook. But thnt Is Just once. It is doing lt every day.
under different circumstances, meeUng different littlo
emergencies, that makes the really good cook. Cooking
schools are a whole lot better than nothing, but they
are a whole lot worse than the home training which
our grandmothers gave our mothers.
"By which I do not mean to say that every woman
should pare vegetables, nnd dress fowls, and bake tho
bread for her own table. But she should emphatically
know how, and so bo able lo supervise those whose business lt Is to do It for her. It depends on circumstances
as to how much conking a woman should do. No woman
ls too rich to understand and practice the culinary art.
And n woman who Is a really good cook ls a long way on
the road to being a really good housekeeper.
"To a really good housekeeper the servant problem
Is not such a bugbear. She can get along without servants If she has to. And she Is generally able to keep
servants when she gets them, or to train new ones
when she Is obliged to do so. So she does not let It drive
her out of her home and Into a hotel or a bearding house.
"And n veiy large proportion of the divorces occur
among occupants of hotels and boarding houses. Tho
logic of the situation points not to a Federal marriage
law, nor yet to a uniform divorce law-for the views of
the States on that subject differ too widely lo make It
probable that they could be broughl inlo agreemcct-but
to the ounce o( prevention which Is proverbially worth >
pound of cure. It seems to me thnt the most cffecUvt
preventive Is a thorough knowledge of cookery.
"I don't know how this knowledge of cookery Is to
be disseminated, II may not be within thc province of
the public schools. And even adfnltting lhat lt Is, I don't
know how much the public schools can accomplish. But
I believe that if every girl who looks forward, as all
girls should, to a happy married llie, werc to regard
that it n vocation, and lit herself lor It by first of all
being thoroughly mistress or her kitchen range-whither
the actual work Is done by deputy or not-nnd after that
of tbe rest of her house, she would stand a much beller
chance of -living happy ever after.'"
Divorce Is undoubtedly the crying evil of the day.
According to the census of 1900 there was at that lime hi
tho State nf New York one divorced person for every
117 married; in Pennsylvania one lor every 21S married.
Massachusetts had one divorced person for eve.y 13i married persons; California and Connecticut, one ror every
US, followed closely by Rhode Island and Illinois wlUi
one for every I1T; Michigan, one lor every 1(0. Maine, one
for every seventy-six, and New Hampshire ono for eviry
sixty-one married Individuals.
Things have certainly Improved since ...en. So fnr as
statistics are to bo had tbey Imllcite that New York city
has now, In proportion to Its pnj.ulutltn, fewer divorced
persons ihan any cily in lhe I'nlon. There Is only ono
divorce tiie.e tn every forty marriages, Baltimore comes
next with u divorce to every twenty-eight marriages,
Philadelphia Is third with one for every twenty; Pitts.
burg and Washington are tied for fourth place with one
In every eighteen; Boston one tor every fourteen; New

eleven; Chicago, ono fcr each nine; Louisville, ono for
each eight, St. 1'aul and Cleveland, one for each seven;
lndlunnpnlls, ono for each live; and Sail Francisco and
Kansas City, one for inch four.
This is a record worth pondering well—a record

RIGHT back In the month of May,

tad taken a shirt stroll In thu cool

Thousands of white-tail.'rl rabbits were
happily entiling the col air and chasing
each othr-r ln and out of their holes,
snd on them Robber Fox fixed His
bright, hungry eyes a* h. crept stealthily forward under the thick bushes.
A llltlr. way ahead, not m..r-r than a

rabbits, having no end -1 a game, Ihey

"One of them will leap my way pres-

But he had not walled long when an
old rabbit, which was keeping watch on
the top of a molehill, Bpieo his cruel,
glittering eyes. He gav a sharp, warning crv, ami in a moment hundreds and
hundreds of white tails were disappearing down as many deep, dark holes.
Oh. dear: how that oil thief of a fox

If the young bunnies had seen hlm,

"Never mind," cried P.jbber Fox. almost choking with anger. "I'll have
rabbit for supper yet,"
He thrust his head Into a hole several sizes ioo small for his body to follow, and noticed in what direction the
burrow ran.
After f-fllowlng this overhear! for a
lew steps, with his keen  nose to the
?round, he at last caus'lit ihe scent of
ds prev underneath: and he was so
clever thai, bit b' bit, he traced this
out to the end.
Then Robber Fox began to dig down,
down, down into the soft red-sand soil
with his strong paws. And U..- earth

moment the hole grew deeper.
He meant - - break through the ceiling
of ihe bunnies' burrow find then—well,
then he wo.ild have rabbit for supper.
After digging and scraping for some
time. Reynard found that he had made
a passage quite six feet rieeji; and now
he could hear the bunnies moving

"Dear Papa and Mamma:
"I have gone to St. Petersburg to
see tlie Empress.
Many strange adventures the brave
little girl had on the long journey from
Tobolsk to St. Petersburg. Five miles
from home, she had a narrow escape
from the wolves, and owed her rescue
to n trained bear, which was wandering
In the vicinity, and grabbing her dreas
between his teeth, swam with her across
a lake lo n safe placo.
There a caravan fpicked her up, and
when tbey nsked her where she lived,
she said:
"Mv home Is in Sl. Petersburg, and I
want to gel back there."
•So they look her all the wny to the
capital, am) when she got there she
went straight to the Palace. But the
court lackeys stared at her hard and
said: "Go away, little girl. What doe**.
the Empress want with such as you?"
So poor, tearful Pras-co-vie wandered
around a while on the boulevards, watching the fast-flying sledges and gayly
chattering people, nono of whom paid
her the least attention.
But this is doing no good, and soon
shall Btarve to death   if I find   no
friends," thought Pras-co-vle, so alio
turned back toward ibo Palace.
Directly in front of the Puluco entrance stood u colossal statue of

struck Pras-co-Vlo, Yes! she would do It.
She tolled up the steep steps leading
to the base of the statue and thero,

above her.
Presently tho jingling of silver sleigh-
bells approached, drew close, stopped!
"Sueh a strange place for a child,"
exclaimed a sweet voice. "Bring her
down to me, Michael."
A richly liveried man sprang up to
Pras-co-vle's side and. picking her up,
carried hor down to his mistress.
And that was the beginning of happiness fur Pras-co-vle, Fol what Uo you

The Coughing Bean
IE HAVE heard of the pitcher
plant that captures unwary Insects and eals them, and we
have been beguiled by the talc of the
singing tree, but wc never heard of any
product ot the tropics more strange
.ban lhe coughing bean. This bean ls
not lhe product of un excited imagination, the fantasy of a ("ream pliulitas-
liiagoria, but a very material coughing
fad. What makes the bean cough?
Why, that's easy. H coughs for the
same reason you cough-to clear Its
throat, I mean its pores. These pores
are verv sensitive to any irritation.
When tlie pores become clogged with
dust gas collects within the plant cells,
linallv bursting oul in a paroxysm of
coughing and sneezing, which effectually
disposes of the dust. This respiratory
plant Is sometimes cultivated as a house
plant, ond the weekly sweeping of the
carpets sets it lo coughing violently.—

The way to read lt and the proper
answer wero, of course. Tears, minus
ears (equals T) plus woman (equals

FORTUNATELY, tho day is
pnst when cast-off party
finery did duty i'or house-
wear for the afternoon or a
quiet evening nt home. Not that an
evening gown may no: be remodeled
into a very charming denii-toiletle,
but that is cuite a different proposition.
Nowadays the well-dressed woman
chooses her afternoon costume with
the greatest cure. She always has at
least one dress that she can slip on
when she comes in from a walk or a
day of shopping.
This custom has n double advantage. Not only is the house gown
pretlier and infinitely more nrtistio
than the short skirt and separate
wnisl, but the saving of one's tailor
gown is Incalculable. Nothing more
euroly brings speedy decrepitude,
Ugly bagging and shiny scanm ta i
well-pressed cloth suit than the habit of wearing :t indoors.
The distinctly afternoon or house
gown of the present seasou is un-
usunlly attractive. It is almost invariably in the soft pale shades of
tan, green, gray, lavender, wood
brown, dull pink nnd blue or champagne. Black and white nre also in
great favor, a touch of color being
used wilh l.oth in the wny of trim-
mini's, gay paste buttons or rich
creamy laces.
The materials used nre, ns a rule,
soft  Bud  clinging,  lending tli.-m-
wrap. Indeed, all of these gowns are
intended for just such purposes.
For thc waist the cloth is arranged
in a jabot on each side of a lingerie
vest. The folds are held in place by
arge paste buttons and loops of silk
cord, the whole finished with a narrow collar and girdle of velvet several shades darker than the cloth.
These are outlined with shared
folds of the cloth piped with velvet,
or a narrow passementerie may be
substituted. The vest is or mull
crossed by bands with lace insertion.
Severely simple yet becoming, especially to rnther stout figures, is
the skirt with its gored front and
tucked circular sides.
Only a slender, long-waiated womnn could venture to wear the last
model, as tho broad horizontal lines
of the bodice arc apt to prove trying.
The material used is a light weight
in bright blue worn over a blouse
of cream-colored Point d'Alcnco-i
lace. The skirt is rather full and
.-weeping, finished with bias tucks.
A very striking trimming of cm-
broidery in gold, blue silk and black
chenille outlines the bodice, beads
the tucks on the skirt and forms a
cuff on the lace blouse.
As a rule, thc woman or girl who
must dress on a small allowance
thinks an extra house dress an unattainable luxury. The mistake of this
is evident. Charming little gowns of
this character may easily he. made at
home, by the skilful dressmaker, or
even by the woman who does her own
sewing. Dainty, dressy materials
may frequently bo picked up nt a
bargain. Xor need tbey bc of the
very latest fashion.   A soft, prclly
color and it fabric pliable enough
to fall into graceful folds rarely
looks out of date, lt is well, moreover, for the woman who must consider expense to choose a material
that while clinging is not so transparent as to necessitate a silk lining.
Odd bits of trimming can often bo
' found in tha patch box, which every
provident woman sliould own, and
often an old lace skirt or blouse may
bo utilized for the yoke and sleeves.
Try concocting one of these little
dresses for this winter. Make it as
simple and inexpensive as you
please, hut havo it ready to slip into
whenever you want to be attractively and suitably gowned for an afternoon at home or for any informal
card party or al fresco supper
where the outer wraps must bo rein.n-ed.
selves more readily to tho graceful
swa-ping lines of the new models.
Such simple afternoon gowns as
the ones shown today are easily followed, even by thc home dressmaker.
Very effective is that in the upper
left-hand corner. It is of crepe
meirone,. one of the loveliest of tbe
winter's more dolicnto fabrics, in a
fascinating new shado of 1'ipo apricot. The circular skin is severely
plain, depending largely lor its
beauty on tho grace oi its Bweopillg
lilies. The wnisl, which . worn outside ilie skirt on a fitted li ing, i-

bodice is made in soft straight folds.
held in by a girdle of the material.
This is worn over a yoke an.l sleeves
of lace dyed to match Ihe gown. The
same la.-e is used in bands on the
triple skirt.
A mole-colored lightweight cloth
forms the next costume, which is
equally charming for informal occasions in the house or for wear to
an afternoon tea under a long loose
them. A studded belt in one of those
delicate gray shades gives an exquisite finishing touch to a dainty
gray luncheon gown.
Plaid lulls make a charming addition I., n sill; lingerie blouse when
it is worn with a short-skirted suit.

Klnstie belts are in greater demand than ever before. The narrower ones are iu all colors—plain
ami plaided. They are studded and
embossed in various designs. The
soft, elastic belts, which crush into
the buckle, come only in black nml
white and ure four or live inches
—r^^^/i-^L /r$~+
The rage for gray belts is wide-
spreading in this season, when gray
is in high favor. Some of the
tic ones look like a most exquisite

Thc studded elastic belts are

During the week following thc Feast oi Thanksgiving Nokomis made a nice
warm "play dress" Ior Fanny Yellow Hair. She cut it out of a very solt blanket and
trimmed it with rabbit lur, with a bright red sash to tie around her waist. In plnce
of stockings she made her a pair ol Indian leggings and two pretty deerskin moccasins to keep her Ieet warm.   She and Little Growling Bird then went ou. to play.
Ol course the fancy lawnskin dress she wore at the Thanksgiving Feast was put
away and kept for holiday wear, or other special occasions. Yellow Hair looked very
much like a little squaw girl. When they came to the edge of the stream, Dancing
Water, they heard something moaning. Peeking around a big rock they saw a big
brown beast lying on the sand.
It looked like a great big Cow, but Aundak. who had traveled a great deal, said
at once that it was Mush-kooday Pezhcke, the Prairie Bull, or, as the Palclace people
say, "Buffalo," or "Bison." There was a little bird—a kind of Startling—perched
on Buffalo's back. It was the Buffalo-Bird, who is great chums wilh the prairie cattle, because he roosts on their backs and picks insects out of their shaggy hair.
As soon as Buffalo Bird saw Aundak and the children hc called to them to corne forward and pull out an arrow that was sticking in the side of Prairie Bull, and which made him very sick and weak. Little Growling Bird went bravely up to him and
quickly drew the arrow from the wound. It hurt, o! course, but it had to be done. Buffalo groaned and shed a few tears, but
Aundak told him to cheer up and comealong to the Wigwam, where Nokomis would quickly heal the sore place with the magic
Healing Root.   Buffalo-Bird told the children to get on Prairie Bull's back and he would carry them thefe.   So up ihey climbed.
Away they went along the path that led to the Wigwam. Buffalo was very strong and carried them along easily, in spite oi
his wounded side.whilc Buffalo-Bird told them how they were on their way to the Southland—because the winter was coming on—,
v. hen an Indian hunter had shot an arrow at his big Iriend and wounded him in the side. They had turned aside and entered the
Rc'ugc Ground, where they were safe from pursuit, and where they hoped to find some one that would pull out the cruel arrow.
"I've got him well trained," said Buffalo-Bird (who was a little vain).   "He does whatever I tell him to do!"   Well-*
They soon came to thc Wigwam, and Nokomis wa3 greatly surprised when she saw the children riding on the big H-.ilf.ilo*-,
back. But when they told her how he had been wounded, -.he quickly boiler] some of the Meezh-way-wushk, or Healing Root,
end applied the juice lo the sore. Such was the magic quaht.e-, of the Medicine Root lhat il healed .he wound right awa / P lifll felt so much better thai he thought the medicine would be good for lus stomach, too, .'. he drank the whole bowlful ol the

Aifer Buffalo had thanked Nokomis and the children for curing him l.e slartcd off on his long journey to the Southland—
where lh- grail growaall 'lie year 'round. Buffalo-Bird promised lo come back the next 6ummer, when Prairie Bull would give
the children , -ine long ...le. Now, ever since .hen, when any of '.he Buffalo People are wounded they hunt around for Meezh-

Near Port in Terrific Gale—
140 Drowned and one Saved
—Vessel Breaks in two.
Rotterdam, Feb. 2*2.—A disastrous
1o«b ol life, occurred yesterday off tbe
north pier ol the Hook ol Holland,
when the Great Eastern Railway com-
pany'i steamer Berlin, bound from
Harwich to The Hook ol Holland,
wns loat. All un board, 141 people in
all, ol whom 91 were pussengers, were
drowned with but a single exception.
The wreck ocouried nt 5 o'clock
yesterday morning during n terrific
■southwesterly gale. The steamer
struck the north jetty while trying to
enter Ihe new waterway nt the Hook
ol Holland, wna broken in two forward
nnd Bank while the pnssongers and
crew gathered alt and vainly
tempted to lower the lileboata
pcreon waB saved und 25 bodies have
been washed aahore. The Berlin was
a British steamship, commanded by
Captain Precious and waa ol 1,775
tons.   The ship was built in 1894. Eastern Railway company
officially confirms the loss ol the
steamer Berlin, with all on board, off
the coast of Holland. The Berlin
carried passengers and crew to the
number of 141. Among those drowned
are nineteen members ol tbe German
Opera Co., who bad just conclnded
their season at Covent Garden, Arthur
Herbert, one ol lhe king's messengers,
who was journeying to the continent,
was also lost. The manager of the
Covent Garden theater confirmed the
statement that nineteen members of
the German Opera company left last
night on ;he steamer Berlin.
"So far as we know," he said, "these
did not include any ol the star artists,
sb the party was made tip ol members
ol the chorus returning to their homes.
Tbey made arrangements directly with
the railway company, so we nre not
yet able to get nn exact list ol their
"The disaster has aroused the most
intense alarm among the other nicm-
benofthe company, owing to the
friendship and relationship existing
among them."
The Berlin left Harwich at 10 o'clock
on Wednesday night upon the arrival
ol the London train with the gieater
number ol passengers who subsequently lost their lives. The steamer should
have reached the Hook of Holland at
six o'clock yesterday morning, and
would hare proceeded to Rotterdam.
A great gale was blowing in the
North Ben when the Berlin started,
but tbe weather was no worse thnn on
the previous night, when similar
vesaelB made the trip without mishap.
As the Berlin was entering the water
way at the entrance of the river, however, Bhe appeared to become unmanageable on account ol the lorce of the
wind, and was driven aihore.
The alarm was given, and lifeboats
Irom lhe shore proceeded to the assistance ol the stricken steamer, but the
seas were bo high that the bouts were
unable to appruach the Berlin close
enough to take off any ot the passengers or crew and tho lifeboat men had
to stay helpless, while the steamer
pounded until she broke In two.
Every soul on board was carried down.
She apparently struck about amidships, as be .'ore-part broke off and
Bank immediately, while ber after
part could be seen f jr n considerable
time afterwards.
The waterway in which tbe disaster
occurred, is a new one on tho north
side ol which is the pier and railroad
The steamer must have been within
n lew minutes of tying up after her
rough passage across the North Sen,
when Bhe was overtaken by the disaster. Land was but a lew yards awny
and, only Ior the rough weather, those
on board the Berlin could have been
rescued without difficulty, especially
as the waterway is navigablo at nil
The Berlin was a Bteel stcimer, only
12 years old and popular with the
traveling public to the north ol
Europe. In summer she usually was
crowded with passengers, but at this
time of the year, (he average was
about as it was last night, the number being equally divided between
first and second class.

Scheme Taking Shape—Cost
of Work Estimated to be
About $6,000,000.
The project Ior tho tunnelling of the
straits of Belle Isle and the construction of a mil way via the tunnel across
the interior ol Labrador and traversing
a portion ol Newfoundland to the east
coast of that island, where it will connect with a fast line of steamers run
ning to Europe iB now fully provided
for by charter and is engaging the
attention of engineers and railroad
men the world over. The franchise
already granted thc Quebec and Lake
St, John railroad lor the work gives
the company 20 years for construction
and the government of Newfoundland
will give a yearly subsidy uf $75,000
for the scheme. The construction of
the tunnel under the straits is not
expected to be a very costly affair considering the magnitude of the under,
taking, the straits being not over ten
miles wide nt the point where the
tunnel will be built. This is opposite
Point Armour and the water at tliis
place is less than 150 Ieet deep. At
tbe usual cost of tunnelling thc work
is not expected to cost more than
$6,000,000. There is plenty of money
at the back ol the scheme to assure
its success. As a waterway to Europe
the route cannot be beaten on the
Atlnntic coast. It is freo of fogs and
the entire distance from the eastern
const ol Newfoundland to the Irish
const iB barely 1800 miles. The promoters ol this enterprise believe it
will be possible to enrry passengers
and mails from New York to Europe
via this route in shorter time than is
now taken on by any existing route.
The promoters are already arranging
the finances and it is expected work
will be commencod during the coining

two thirds ol the normal volume of

twice as many ns usunl were required.
The failure to secure lumber jncke and
the extreme cold and depth of snow in
the woods is responsible. The extension of branch lines and lhe new

The C. P. K. will in all probability
take over the Spenocs Bridge-Nicola
Railway line Irom the contrnotors on
March 1, and on or shortly after thnt
date the operation of a regular train
service over the road will be commenced. The train schedule has not
yet been prepared, but it is reported
that at the outset three trains will be
run each way weekly Ior the handling
of passenger, express and mail traffic.
Besides this there will bo the freight
service as business warrants.
As soon as the coal properties near
the Nicola Lake end ol the line, now
under development, are ready to Bhip,
there will be a (airly large amount ol traffic on the line, These

Revelstoke as the Entre-Pot of
Commerce of the Interior—
Every Inducement for Capital and Settlers.
It is un undeniable fnct that Revelstoke has a very rosy future before her,
the very steady, solid nnd ever upward
trend of her progress l.eing the principle demonstration ol this. Rome
wus not made in a day, neither is
Revelstoke mndo in 11 year, but like
that city of old, she bus a olid backbone in her reputation of progressive-
ncss which is enjoyed by few ciiies of
like size. There has been no boom,
sinre the beginning ol things when
Revelstoke wus t.ut a mere collection
of huts nnd tents, hut the maroh ot
progress bus neVer faltered a step and
as years have rolled by, changes, al-
j ways for the better have been iii.ule,
and as the develop...enl of British
Columbia bus increased and will undoubtedly go on increasing, so will the
city develop according to the requirements and demands of her growing
trade und commercial  centralization.
For scenery, par excellence, Revelstoke h.iB no equal, and situated us
she is, on the great continental highway, in the midst ol a country rich in
mineral, timber uud resources, she cannot fail to take her
place us the entrepot and chief distributing centre of tbe interior empire.
The district so rich und fertile requires
much expended on it to bring it up to
tlie standard which it certainly deserves und now that this fact lias been
realized by tbe province, we oan rest
assured that our requirements will he
seen to.
The ll'iurd of Trade has taken active
