good margin. being allowed on the
estimates. After a lull discussions
decision was arrived at and a resolution passed tbat the tax rate of 12}
mills on tbe dollar be levied lor special
rale and ll} mills as general rate
making a total of 24 mills on the
dollar. Included in tbe estimates is

ainouuts will be heavy in such a short
space of time, the council wish to
remind tbem tbat they can pay their
taxes anytime after Monday whether
they bave got their notices or not and
that the city hall staff will assist the
taxpayer in working out his amount.

up aad in the course ol discussion the
council learned that firms who were
operating several branches ol business
such as insurance, coal, draying, eto.,
underline heading, were only paying
one licence lee for the hit, sud this
practice hsd been going on lur years
the city thereby losings large amount
of revenue. The council agreed that
the bylaw should be enforced and that
the licences be paid for every branch
of business carried on by one firm, and
instructed the city clerk to see that
such licences were paid for.
The muddy condition of the streets
was discussed and the need of something being done to clean the surface

Rain Upsets a Mysterious Festival in Revelstoke
"There's a world in which we dwell,
And yet a world invisible!
And do we think  that naught can be,
Save only what with eyes we see.
Tell us that this very hour,
Had but our sight a spirit's power.
We would he looking eye to eye,
At a terrili • company."
All Hallowe'en, the nighi before the
festival of All Saints, has long been
noted for observances which have
their origin in heathen times Many
of these urp described in Burns' poem
on Hallowe'en. It seems to have been
imagined that the supernatural in-
uences were all powerful nn that
night and tu those who were bold
enough to invoke their assistance, the
spirits would leveal the future. Tile
night was devoted however, chielly to
lovers, and numberless were the devices by which they sought to learn
tlio names of their future husbands
and wives, a practice Out unknown at
tbis fesii ai in old pnn-aic Revelstoke
Tlie Hallowe'en this year
was attended by no special celebration,
deluges of rain somewhat hindering
the usual youthful pranks which are
the chief tonus of celebration now-o-
days, by the lads who are allowed a
licence to play practical jukes which
would not be permitted at any other
time. In spite of the rain a large
number of boys were out till all hours
parading tlie streets uud curry ing out
many tricks or jokes, as they nre supposed to be, and coining inure oi le.-s
destruction, There uiis, however,
many UK rry gatliit ings whoie the nld
customs nre n < ive.I by lhe lads ill d
lasHies, whu love fun ns dontl)' in tbe
