Life is niiide np of a Bcries of historical events handed down from age
to age. Many of these events are unwritten and unread, much valuable
narrative thereby being lost. In this
age of hustle and progress we are too
apt to forget Ihe past and think lightly of the hard struggle thai the pioneers of our present day development
and wealth had when opening up the
country and laying the foundations of
the cities and industries which today
are the pride of the gre.it weet.
It was a happy thought that inspired "Trail Blnzer" to make an uppeiil
through the press for an "Old Timers'
Reunion." A tribute iB due to the
pioneers 1 f the Kootenay und it iB
only just that in their declining years
After considerable discussion os to
the nature of the qualifications required for membership, it was moved
by J. M. Kellie, seconded by J. A
stone, that qualification for member
ship he limited to 15 years' residence
in li. C. and intending members to be
of 1111 ago limit of 21 years.
The Kev. C. A. I'rocunier Baid that
it was only fair to give the hoya a
chance to cherish the old associations
and to help tho old men.
II. It. A'kins suid that the hoys
were the means of keeping up the
country and pointed cut that the uld
timers' inlluence did much for the
young men and that such gatherings
will bring In interesting narrative
which is the miking of history.
T. Kilpatrick moved, seconded by
A. Mcliae, as an amendment to Mr.
Celtic's motion, that tbe membership
qualification he "males of fifteen years
residence in the K otenays, or of arrival in thu Kootenays prior to 1893,
and their male descendants over 21
years of age."
The question for the amendment
was put, the ayes having the biggest
majority and the amendment waB
declared curried and the moljon lost.
Enrolment of members then took
place, the following  signing in chron-

the memories ol old timers should be
cherished and the glad bad ol com
radeship, of help and of kindlin ss
extended to those who in their lust
span of life need tho support of tbeir
younger brethren,
Mayor Lindmark called a meeting
on Wednesday night for the puipose of
discussing the que tion and of forming
an old timers' association. A large
number ol old time residents attended
and when tbe pipes and cigars were
lit diid the council chamber filled with
smoke, it seemed really like old times
By general consent his worship, the
mayor, was invited to the chair, and
in a few works explained how and
why the meeting was called, pointing
out that the idea was a good and
beneficial one. B. R. Atkins was
elected secretary of the meeting.
The first question to be discussed
was that of the advisability of forming
an old timers' association and the
scope of its objects.
Exception was taken by A. Mcltae
and others to tbe word "pioneer" being
used as not being a suitable term in
the full meaning of the word, and
after discussion it was move I hy J. M.
k'el ie sec mdel A, Dirk that an association called the "Old Timers' Association,   of   Kevelstoke,"   he     formed.

Aod so much good iu lhe wursst nf us,
That il hardlj- behoofs, auy of as.
Tu talk about the rest of ns.
Considerable controversy i? going
on in different parts of Canada regarding the question of local option
and a campaign is now being waged
iu earnest in many of the leading
eitie? of B. C. If tbe liquor business is lhe menace to humanity
which the local optioniBts claim,
should uot it.- abolition begin at
the fountain head, and should they
not go after the big game, the breweries and distilleries? And why
not get legislation enacted prohibiting its manufacture? As long as
liquor te lieing manufactured so
long will it be retailed out. While
the local optionists are clamoring
for lhe abolition of saloons they
should remember that ''forbidden
fruit" ia alway.- the sweetest to
human nature, and the more u
thing is denied a man the more aggressive and drastic will be tlie
means he employ? to secure his
own ends and to overcome the barrier: that are set before him: while
on the other hand if an article becomes too cheap or is directly put
in the way of a man he invariably,
alter lhe Brsl realization that he
can gi t ini he wants, 'ires of the
continual surfeit and eventually
i.-'l - il all igi tbi r. The abolition
of saloons will pr ibably tend to
reate many more "blind pigs" in
:.- country than there are at present, besides the temptation to create illicit stills; and liquor will be
sold quite as abundantly under
prohibition laws as under well regulated license. When a law is
flagrantiv or habitually violated it
brings legislation into contempt; it
creates a spirit of deception and
hypocrisy, and compel? men to do
insidiously and by Btealth what
they would otherwise do openly
and above board, it is a difficult
matter to] legislate men by civil
action into the performance of good
and righteous deeds, and the virtue
of temperance Bhould rather In-
taught in our churches anil in the
family circles. Many methods for
dealing with the drink evil in our
generation are tainted with false-
hood and dichonor by essentia]
unreality,   and   are discredited by
widespread and consistent failure.
We might learn u lesson from the
old cities in Europe, which for
2,000 years havo been agitating
this question. There is not it city
in Great Britain or on the continent which attempts lo prohibit by
law the sale of liquor. Tbey have
learned from long experience that
the best method of regulating this
article ot commerce is to impose
licences, to maintain good order
for the protection uf the citizens
and to punish the violators of the
law. In dealing with this question
care and good sense Bhould decide
wbat results will accrue from local
option, and in the stamping out of
drunkenness and excess, high
licence appear, to be the only solution of the problem.
The Christmas season is approaching, the time when purse
strings are loosened more than
usual and the average man does
not look twice at every dollar bill
belore he parts with it. The public
are looking round for novelties and
the advertiser usually gets a run
for his money. Perhaps there are
times when our readers feel that
some of the business men of the
city are not progressive enough.
Ingrained in nature is an admiration for the "huBtler," for the person who does things, who improves
whatever he touches. Agressive
advertising is the one infallible test
in a merchant. All other signs of
life about a store are misleading, ii
a store is not agreBsively advertised.
Every man will agree that it pays
to b6 enterprising, but many are
afraid to take th" step, ior enterprise is expensive and no matter
what form of original advertising
you adopt, it involves .in outlay of
cash—often a heavy one. If it did
not, your enterprise would fail
because there would be nothing to
ittract tbe public. That i- «
merchants fri gently fall do_ i;
they are afraid to risic their cash on
what they consider as an uncertainty, and that ifl one reason why
ibe mail-order house gets business
away from them. Good anil appropriate advertising at such a see-
son as thi- in every brunch of pro-
fesaion and trade in the cit;
been proved to be proBtable in
every respect.

fire-box controls
the oven heat,
and the grates
hold the coal or
wood that produces the heat, so
are important.
"Sask-alta" Double Duplex Grates are made
in four pieces, each grate shaken separately.
Ashes over one grate can be ehaken without
wasting good fuel over other grate. No poking
necessary, thereby saving fuel. Dampers at both
ends of fire-box secure perfect drafts. When
grates are inverted for wood a patent clamp
retains them in position. The easiest-working
