The case of Miohael McMurray, at
present a patient in the hospital at
Whitehorse, Y. 1',, where be is being
treated for decaying fingers, the result of freezing, is almost without
parallel in the annals of Canadian
frontier history. ili-Murray was* located in tho very heart of a vast and,
but by himself, unexplored torritorj,
ono huudrod and fifty miles northeast
of Teslin post and noar tho headwaters of tho Deaso rivor. lie had been
there live years, making an occasional
trip to the post of Taylor & Drury at
Teslin for supplies. On tho wuy uut
last spring ho hud tho misfortune to
badly freeze tho two lingers on his
rigut hand. As a result tbo two injured fingers began to decay, and in
order to romovo the dead bono file -
Murray tied a strong airing around
the boue, fastening tho other end to a
tree and witb a cioterrained jerk, pulled tho bones of both lingers olf at the
tirst joint. While tho injured digits
did not heal, McMurray wont ahead
with his work of prospecting and mining and when winter set in to hunt -
ing and trapping.
Throe weeks ago ho was one day
scleral miles from his cabin skinning
a number of wolves ho had shot, and
when ho returned in tho ovoning it
wus to Iiud his cabin in a heap of
ashos, it having been entirely i-onsuina
tod by tiro during his absence. Everything ho possessed on earth, except
the lew clothes ho wore at tho time
wero gone. All tho grub bo bad left
was a piece of frozen mooso moat
hanging in n tree nearby, but ho had
not even a match with which to light
a firo to cook it. Willi the chunk of
the frozen moat he started for Taylor
& Drury's post 150 miles away. As
his moccasins soon wore out he was
forced to use his drawers to tie up
his feet and that loft nothing to cover
his legs save a pair of overalls. How -
over, he pushed bravely on, travelling
day and  night,     without  sleep,     and
  I with nothing to eat snvo  the     frozen
|mooso moat.

Genuine Scotch is Good for You.
Scotch Whisky is an excellent tonic and
digestive. Many elderly    people    find    it
absolutely essential to    their physical    well-
b ing.
But, like everything else, it benefits tbe
user only when used  in moderation.
Also, its benefit to you depends very
largely upon the brand you select.
Use- a genuine Highland Pure Malt Whisky.
Use Watsons a brand tbat for nearly a
century bas been beld in tbe highest esteem
wherever Scotch Whisky  ts to be found.
Distilled in the Highlands of Scotland,
from pure Barley Malt, and by tbe old-fashioned
Pot Still process, our Whisky is aged in Sherry
wood until it i9 smooth, mellow and rich.

A.    J.   STONE
Committee Rooms-Selkirk Hall—Open Daily
To the Electorate of Revelstoke .
A very lar^e number ol the representative citizens of Revelstoke having requested me to become a
candidate for the position of Mayor of Revelstoke, I consented upon the understanding that gentlemen in whom
the electors would ,ilso have confidence would undertake
to run as Aldermanic candidates, in order to ensure the
election of a Council competent to deal with the serious
situation confronting the City of Revelstoke.
Briefly the object of nnself and associates, if
elected, will be :—
To face the financial situation by obtaining a
complete grasp of the City's finances, and take the citizens
into our confidence by issuing an absolutely correct and
pl.iin statunent so that the position will be clear to all,
anJ then take the necessary steps to restore the ciedit of
the city.
By the pr.'iciice of the st ri. tt st economv endeavor
to reduce a rate oi taxation which is not only becoming a
menace to our own citizens, but, whieh because of its
most unfavorable comparison with the rate prevailing in
other cities where the assessment i.s no higher, and where
water, light, and power are also municipally owned, and
other advantages of sewerage, cement sidewalks, etc,
prevail, as in Revelstoke, is at the present time prohibiting the investment of outside capital, despite the fact that
Revelstoke has natural adv images far in excess of those
of other cities. A fairer method of valuation is also a
To give a good, clian, progressive adminisra-
tion which shall command respect throi ghout the city,
and by restoring confidei ce on the outside, lav the foundation for that development and prosperity which tliis'city
has the right to enjoy.
Finally, I would add that having been promised
the co-operation of the best and most practical men in this
city whose one object is the welfare of Revelstoke regardless of every other c msideration, you may be assured
that the council \ou are asked to elect are prepared to
give you the administration which the ciisi^ we have
reached demands, and on that ground the support of
their fellow citizens is solicited.
Faithfully yours,

Christmas Creed
"Do not keep the alabaster boxes of
your love unci tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead- Kill their
lives witli sweetness. Speak approving
cheoi'ing words while theii1 ears ran
hoar tbem, and while iheir hotirts >an
be thrilled and made happier by tliein;
tin- kind thing* you mean to Ray when
they are gone, say before they uo.
Thr llowers yon mean tn send for their
coflins, send to brighten and sweeten
their  home,- before  they leave  them.
"If our friends havo alabaster boxes
laid away. full nf fragrant perfumes
of sympathy and afieetion, whieh they
intended to break over my dead body,
] would rather they would bring them
nut in my weary and troubled hours,
ami open them, that I may be refresh*
etl and eheered by lhom "hi!.' I need
ihem. I would rather have a plain
colli n withoul a flower, a funeral without an eulogy, than a life without tlie
sweetness  of  love and  sympathy.
"Let us learn to annoint our friends
beforehand for their burial. I'osi ■
mortem kindness doos not cheer the
troubled spirit. Flowers on ihe coffin
ast no fragrance backward over life's
wearv way.'1
Ah. McCarter addressing lho court
for tlie defense, contended there was
no evidence that plaintiff was an employee of the company He had gone
to th'1 mill on hi-' own violitiou, and
ai his own request. Tho companj had
a sawyer aud Tiler at the time ami
hud given plaintiff     several  hint-     to
leave which  he had     taken     In  th*'
hospital Mr. (jibbons had asked him
what he owed him ami plaintiff said
that what hi' had done was not worth
anything and that he did not owe him
anything. Ucftfudant gave him a check
oui of pure generosity. Mr. Kernel to
knew tne condition of the plain and
it was at his own request the kjuide
wan put on. fie gave the company no
