Fire Breaks Out in Upper Story
of Mrs. Jullian's Home-
Defective Chimney
Fire broke out yesterday morning
at 9.30 at the home of Mrs. Frank
Jullian, 71! Second street. The tire
Btarted In an upstairs room In which
at the time her son Tony Jullian was
is Led. Smoke coining through the
roof was noticed by passers by und
the alarm given, bell 2S being rung
by A. Pradolini at the corner of Second and Charles streets. Tho lire
brigade was quickly ou the spot but
ai the corner ol Charles street was
misled hy smoke from an engine and
turned down Charles street instead
of continuing down Second street to
the fire. This caused a coup'.e of
minutes delay but as soon as the
lire was located the hose was speedily coupled up and the brigade
promptly had the lire under control.
Neighbors took most of the furniture, including a piano out of the
house and the damage which is estimated at some X50" was chiefly con-
i ned to th i r of and upper story.
It is believed thai a defective chim-
ni s was the cam ■ of the tire. There
was insurance of *fli'':l0 on the furniture placed through the Kootenay
Agencies and $1COO on the house
placed through the Revelstoke General Agencies.

AN HEROIC ECCLESIASTIC
Through the columns of The Tablet, the English Roman Catholic
-ournal, thc world has been made
acquaints with the text of the pastoral letter-of the Cardinal of Ma-
lines,-the suppression of which by the
German authorities involved them in
a difficult situation Irom which they
nre by no means extricated us yct.
It must rank with the great documents of history. After recounting
with much detail the sufferings which
the people of his country have under-*)
gone anil the hopelessness of their
plight, as it appears on thc face of
things, Cardinal Mercier suddenly
exclaims:
"God will save Belgium, my brothers. How cun we doubt it? Nny, at
this moment he is say'ing it.
"Through the light of burnings and
the vapors of hlood can you not sec
already thc proofs of his love?
"Is there u pntriot who feels that
Belgium  is not greater?
"Which of us does not look with
pride on the outshining of glory on
our desolate land?"
"Which of us would have the com-
uge if he could to tear out this lat-
»st page of our history?
Considering the conditions under
which this pastoral wns issued, were
ever  braver  words spoken?
This must in an especial degree be
the feeling of those who huve followed the course of the heroic prelate
since the time of great trouble came
to his peopll last August. He has
given .in example which must always
redound to the glory of the ancient
church that he serves nnd oi human-
Ity at large. With such leadership no
power on earth can prevent the fullest powlhle reparation being obtained by  Belgium.
in a manner which suggested that the
aviator, if such it wag, was endeavoring to locate his whereabouts,
Some nine or ten people watched the
light for fully 20 minutes as it circled around. As it passed on over the
hills, it was joined bv a second light,
and it seemed to the watchers that
tbe two were Hashing signals to each
other. Finally they disappeared from
view.
Naturally there is a good deal ol
scepticism as to the presumption;that!
the lights, proceeded from aeroplanes,
but as there were many people who
saw them and they had ample time
Ior observation, and they are per-
lectly convinced that they were
searchlights they had seen, it Is oard
to explain it in any other way. The
distance was too great to distinguish anything of th'- machines themselves or to hear anything. of the
whirr of the engines.
As to what purpose aeroplanes
would havfl 'ji tbe Okanagan or whether they w-iv friendly or otherwise it
is impossible to make any Blirmise,
Nor have we any information as to
thc steps taken by the authorities
when   they   were  notified.
Similar  appearances,   it    is     6aid,
were noticed  in  Armstrong.

passing, would bave every dnUbt
dispelled could they see the notable

and likely to be most serviceable. No

Phoenix Club to
Popularize Use of Ski
A   laudable effort    is to  be      made J
this season by thc new otlicers ol the !
thoenix Ski club,  to make the     organization  more     representative     of
the city's population, says the Phoenix Pioneer. Ed. Mellrud, president of j
the club,  points out that at present i
the membership is solely confined   to '
the Scandinavian element,     and      he
makes an earnest     appeal for others j
to enroll themselves among the members.  He says that apart from      tbe
attraction  of   ski-jumping,    a    knowledge     of the use of skis is an asset
not to he lightly overlooked by     re- '
sidents ol this portion of Britten Co-
lumbia,   Another    argument   'n  favor I
of their general adoption is     to     be
found in the brevity aud irregularity
of the skating season. 'At the     m ist, I
in favorable years,    it scarcely     cv |
ceeds nine weeks,  whereas the use   of
skis  may  be   indulged  in tor at  least
twice that length ol time.
Among tjii' methods to be employed
by the club to popularize tb us
the above method of locomotioa, will
be seen ou Sunday afternoon, v>;.e„
a demonstration ol their use with
horses will be given. Through the
gencrorfity of D. J. McDonald a couple
of horses havc been securi I ,uid tbc
Exhibition     is     announced    for i.'.j,

The club Intends to hold its annual
highly-popular ski tournament in the
near future, which will include the
usual long-distance race in the morning and ski-jumping contest in the
afternoon, particulars ol which will
be unnounced  later.
On Tuesday, February 2, the date
of the Women's Patriotic carvinal,
the members will head a procession
on skis, sturting from the Canadian
I acific railway station at 7.80-, acrOM
the city to the skating rink. The
route of the procession will be illuminated and all those possessing skis
are invited to join in.
A number of the members of the
local ski club were out on Sunday
last for a run, and incidentally in
dultted in some practice on the old
ski course outside of the city. Ow>
ing to the scarcity of snow, the club
has conlined its attention to the
above place, and in addition to lm
proving the true* they have raised

HOW TO MAKE REVELSTOKE \
BETTER CITV
Kevelstoke, "the capital of Canada's Alps" is one of the fairest of
J British Columbia's cities. Not only
is it famous for its magnificent scenery but also for its healthy and vig-
orating air. But this is not enough
to make it a popular resort for tourists. They also want cool ilustless
streets and avenues bordered by
shade trees, by which one can keep
cool on a  hot day.
If more roads were built bo that
one could travel to towns a short
distance from here rather than   take
a  sliilT\   ' rain.
More paved streets  would  add       to
beautify   the      city,      because  In   wet.
weather   it   is  almost   Impossible      to
navigate through  lhe  muddy  roads.
MORE  LAWNS
There  are  many  beautiful   lawns    in '
town  but  still  there aro not enough.
Everyone Bhould take pride  in keeping  his  lawn   well    cut    and to    have
pretty  ilowers here and there.
We have not many nice buildings,
But perhaps in the ner future Hevclstoke will a'lso be noted for its
fine  buildings!
Revelstoke, is yet a young city aud
perhaps alter this terrible disaster of
of war has passed into oblivion we
will yet have one of the most beautiful and most popular cities of the
west,'into which tourists will flock
l,y   thousands     each      repeating      the
same thing Revelstoke is Indeed one
of the lo vilest and most beautiful
cities of thr golden west. —Bcraadine
Bunnell.
ABVOCATFS GARBAGE CANS
A city '.vitii beautiful surroundings
is not complete in Itself if its streets
etc.. arc not kepi clean. Tbe city of
Revelstoke spent about seventy tiioa-
Band dollars last year for 'its pave

were decorated with orange peel,
banana peel, bags, pap' i, and many
other    miscellaneous     articles.     But

structure no doubt came over in tho
ark with Noah.
Now for another "pointer". Why
import all the necessities of lile
when better, fresher ami cheaper
goods can be obtained here'.'
Tbe next item is civic improvement,
in caring for our recently plalnted
boulevard trees. Make it compulsory
to mow the boulevards. Beautify the
High school grounds by planting
trees and sowing grass. I think I
am right in venturing to say that
plenty of aid will he given in this
undertaking hy all members of the
Revelstoke High school of which we
arc all proud. A great improvement
iould he made liy having the streels
cleaned  regularly.
Now that the third contingent is to
Jee called for 1 think that the citizens
could  prevail  upon  tb.' authorities  to
have Revelstoke    made   a recruiting
headquarter.
These improvements with a few
more would make us a model city.--
Stanley  Manning.
IMPROVEMENTS FOU THK
FUTURE
Although the city of Revelstoke has
unproved greatly during the last few
years, there are yet mam things
which could  he 'improved.
Now take a visitor coming into Revelstoke in the summer time. The
first thing he would notice would be
the boulevards, overgrown with weeds
and thick, long grass. Would the
streets not look far better if the
grass was cut, the trees well Jjept
and with no foot-prints which are
sometimes made hy people who are
too lazy to walk up to the crossing
to cross over to the other side ol
the road?
Our visitor nest turns his attention
to the gardens. lie is passing one
bouse where the hack garden is
plainly visible. It is covered with
1 iles of garbage which have been
thrown out. by some careless housewife. He thinks how much bettor
that gulden would look if it was
clear id  of the garbage.
MORE BITULITHIC
Hut his mind must not dwell too
long on one subject. The next thing
he notices is the roads. He has seen
lhe new bitulithic pavement along
the main street and has rcuavked
upon it. But now in' comes to one
of the other roads wl i h a thick
with   mud   made   from      recent   rains.
what a great Improvement it   would
be if all the streets Were paved With
bitulithic!
He slay-- in Revels) ike for a month
and during that time be has S'en
more of Revelstoke. He is greatly
Impressed with our city and thinks
that with the improvements already
mentioned in addition to a few otters, Revelstoke certa nly would de-
reive its n ime of the "Capital of
Canada's Alps."—Mable Simmons.
NATURE ON HER SIDE
Improvements! That is just what
Ilevel;!oke wants to make it the
prettiest place in B. C. Revelstoke
has nature on \v,v side, but nature
needs a little changes to increase Its
beauty.
One tiling that Revelstoke wants is
more shade trees. There is nothing
which improves and beautifies a city
so much as plenty of large eh nle
trees which overhang the side walks
and the leaves, which, falling oeca-
slonly, cool the sid.'walks for tie'
pedestrians.
Ten years ago Revelstoke did not
havc the Imposing   edifices    It    has
now or it did not have, all the beautiful ro uls which tale you to scenes
which  rival  fairyland.
How many, ten years ago, went up
Mount Revelstoke? Not many. Now-
very many  people go up  to see     the
flowers, the lakes and glaciers which
are said to abound up there. Tho
auto road will Improve the means
of getting up there and many tourists from all over the world will bo
able to go up there without fatigue.
LIBRARY NEEDED
One thing Revelstoke needs aud
that is more amusements in tho
evening. How many pairs of eyes
would gloat over the books it there
was a library here? How many mon,
who have no homes here, would go
to tho library to spend an evening?
I One thing which has improved Revelstoke vei'jt much is the footbridge,
There is a settlement over there and
tho people had no way of bringing
their horsos over except iu winter
and then tbey had to go around by
the mill which is about three timos
longer.
BOOSTS FOR MAYOR
The mnny schools witb tbeir excellent teachers have ma le Kevclstoket
an educational system and many people have said that. Revelstoke lum
the best schools iu the Interior of
British Columbia,
I Ue all Wish Mayor Foote a long
and prosperous "reign" and we alBO
lope  thai   he   will   fjet  re-eleeled    next
year.-  Drlna Fraser.
IN  TEN  DAYS
The city of Revelstoke could no
made one of tlie most beautiful aud
cleanest cities iu British Columbia in
ten days if each property owner'
would spend three quarters of an
hour three times a week on his property; but this will never bo accomplished unless people stop throwing
ashes out ou the street, aB well as
refuse of all kinds.
The residences of Hcv'.'lstoke are
twenty-three per cent better than
those of our rivul city Kamloops.
If the vacant lots around thc city
were cleared of the old burnt stumps
and just, the shade trees left, these
lots would do for play grounds,
which if kept clean would beautify
the city as well as Improve the owners property,
BEAUTIFUL AS PARIS
, The streets of Revelstoke could be
made to look as beautiful as those of
I'aris if the lawns were kept cut and
the trees protected.
When ,»ou look at Revelstoke from
McDonald's Blult on Mount Revelstoke, it looks like a beautiful painting and it would look just as nice
when you are close to it if every resident would do his best to beautify
the city.   Glen Urquhart.
