Fierce Blaze Sweeps Through Building—Electricity
Supposed to be Cause of Disastrous Fire Last
A spectacular lire last uight laid

at the Corner oi c.onuaugnt und Third
streets, 'the factor} wub owned by
O. W. Abrahamson, and with the exception ol u few tools, sashes and
lioors and a Bander is a total losa.
Nothing but the charred trout wall of
the building remain. The loss is estimated at f20,00U, with insurance of
$1U,20J. The cause of the Ure is supposed tu   be 'tue to electric  wiring.
The tire was first noticed at 'J.-3 p.
Iii., in the north east corner of the
building by E. ti. Burridge who lives
opposite, lie iiiiiuediuUly sent in an
alarm trom box li at the corner of
Third street and Campbell avenue
aud the tire brigade was speedily on
the scene.
When the brigade arrived the lire
seemed to be confined to the north
east corner ot the building. Water
speedily played uiioii the seat ot the
bia and the nanus seemed momentarily to be quenched, billows of
smoke poured Irom tue building, but
co riames could be seen and "they
have got it out" was the exclamation that could be frequently heard
from the large crowd which had qfiick-
ly gathered.
lt >vas soon seen thut the hope was
vain ami that nothing could save the
building, nlled as it was with dry
and highly Inflammable material. The
clouds of smoke grew denser aud
lolled from the roo, aud from every
window. Flames began to appear,
and Boon the entire rear of the building, where the lumber was stored, became a raging turuace of tlame. The
heat was intense and the building
was quickly a mass oi tlames. The
firemen strove valiantly but were
pow<erl<es8 against the fierce lire which
swept from the back tluoughout the
It was Impossible to save any consider, ilde amount of the contents but
the spectators carried out what tools
they could ;ay their hands on and
some manufactured sashes and doors.
The stal le and warehouse belonging
to K. Howson .- Co., a few feet to
the west ,,f ihe blazing building was
in serious danger and was hurriedly emptied, The I.orses were taken out and furniture, ri. s and hay
were piled on tho street. The Bremen
kept tie building drenched with water and notwithstanding thc intense
bent which converted the water into

Bmoked from tin' intense heat ot the
burning building. A cement mixer
near thc south end of the building
also escaped serious injury. The ev-
tning was calm and the smoke and
sparks mounted upwards. Hud a
wind blown Irom the south nothing
could hnve saved the Howson building and the Revelstoke Wine & Spirit
company's warehouse could hardly
have eso iped destruction.
The insurance  is as follows:
Fidelity Phoenix, Dominion Securities, agents, $1,200. (
California, Dominion Securities, agents, $3,000.

The factory wan one of the most
complete of its kind in the interior.
The  building  which  had  been recently

Red Cross Society
The regular meeting of the Red
Cross society was held at the Y.M.C.
A. on Wednesday, October 20, Mrs. T.
Killiatrick the president, in the chair.
1 he attendance was good and each
one came with work or for some to
take away. There are many knitting
needles out that arc not being used
and the society would be glad it any
one having tbem would return them
if not possible to use them any longer. There are quite a number ready
to do knitting and there are no needle s for them. An al-peal sent out lor
the British Red Cross to the people
of Canada, to raise a fund on Trafalgar day for wounded soldiers and
Bailors was received and dealt with.
'ihe sti.n of $26 was given from the
money on hand. The fact that on entertaining the Australian cadets last
week no meeting was held, gave very
short notice to arrange a special
fund for that day. An appeal for
funds for the Canadian soldiers'
Christmas was received and Mrs. McCarter oflered the use of her home for
a tea to be given on Saturday, Oct.
2.3rd, for the purpose. Mrs. Holten
will be hostess with Mrs. McCarter.
A collection will be taken, tea will
be served and a sale ol home cooking
and candy.
The Reel Cross ladies mark every
piece with the name of Revelstoke on
it and this is thc lirst time it has
been acknowledged from the war
Mrs. Pratt has donated 3 dolls on
which tickets will be sold and a
drawing to take place at a date announced later; she has also offered
her bome for a tea to be given in
December. Mrs. Foote and Mrs. ;
Corning have also oflered their homes. Mrs. J. L. Smith sent in her
monthly donation of i'2. The society
would be glad if others would take
uji this systematic way of giving; it :
matters not how large or small it
may be, it will be gratefully ack-
DOWledged. The material on hand
for e'onvalescent shoes is about ex-
hausted and the society would bo
glad to receive material, old or new,
for this branch of the work.

Ottawa, Oct. SJ.—The announcement from the militia department
that towns and villages recruiting up
to a minimum of 2h men will be allowed to quarter the men so raised
during the winter until such time as
they are required, has met with a
wonderful resjionse. Towns and villages from all parts of the Dominion
have wired or written expressing
their confidence that numbers far exceeding the minimum set can bc raised and billeted within their respective limits.
"It is the greatest idea yet," said
General Hughes this morning. "The
response has been tremendous."
The following circular message is
being sent to such localities as bavo
leen heard from."
"Your village in common with every
other centre, large and small in the
Dominion of Canada, will lie allowed
to retain within its own borders until the needs ot the cause require
their removal all troops over a minimum number ol twenty tive who pass
ihe strict medica. examination, are
of good character, and are otherwise
acceptable, raised after this date.
These men may not be billeted or
boarded in any place where liquor of
any kind is sold. While wo have every faith that the soldiers everywhere in Canada will as in the past
conduct themselves as gentlemen and
that the citizens in each locality will
establish high standards, yet should
any place permit abuses to remain
the troops will be promptly removed.
Already in some localities both the
citizens and the soldiers are establishing systems of their own for getting rid of all improper characters.
] appreciate very highly the splendid
spirit of Kamloops. (Signed) Sam

Whether the first appeal In "The

to the sympathetic personality of
.Miss Clark, or to the artistic tone
and superior quality ot the production in its entirety, is of small consequence. Everything is made to
harmonise in the creation of a com-
I letely artistic picture, dramatic
without becoming melodramatic, human, charming and occasionally humorous. Thc director displayed a
nice judgment in his variation of
scenes, running from tragedy to
light comedy, all having a legitimate
place in the story's progress, and natural to the characters. There is
humor in Pepita's flouting of Sebast-
iino, also in dose's mock bullfight

"You," saitl the secretary, impressively, as he ushered the Oalgary
newspaperman into the suite tie luxe
of the Alexandra hotel, "are the lirst
stranger in three days and the first
press man who has ever heen permitted to interview Mr, Readon." He
pronounced the name 'Reardon,' but
explained carefully that it was Bpell-
ed "Reatlou."
The reporter swallowed his embarrassment and adjusted his neck-
tic. He was about to he ushered into the presence of the young man
known variously as the Gilded Youth,
the Millionaire Kid, and the Boy who
put the B in Bant!. All summer stories of the marvellous spending habits

bard to reconcile this young man
with    the black hair parted in     the

complexion and regular features with
the pictures of the dazzling splendor
who demands music at all times—
when arising, while shaving, eating,
ane'. going on Ashing trips.
While the secretary, who was Introduced as Mr. A Metcalfe, rang
f.u a bellboy—incidentally, the bellboy appeared with a startling suddenness that Indicated -'instant at-
ice just outside the threshhold
—the newspaperman explained his errand.
He was  j ut   at  ease instantly.
"C rtalnly," said the secretary,
"just ask me anything you want to
know about Mr. Reardon. I handle
Lis fin tnclal affairs for him. And, by
the way, can you BUgeest anything
frst for a little entertainment? We
bave thought of hiring the Bight-seeing ear of Calgary and a band to

secretary, the detective and others of
the retinue were drunk and details of

«d Among other things, it was explained that while The Presence.

Mr. Reardon.

made plain that Reardon is his incognito nuinc. The name appended to
cheques is said to be J. B. Jenkins,
but it is considered bad taste to discuss the actual identity ol the Gilded Youth. The ancestral home is
somewhere outside of Loudon. and
there is a grandfather, 79 years of
age, owner of coal mines iu Wales,
who is the next of kin.
'"It's a shame," suid the rresence,
"to make jokes about the old man's
age and what will happen to his millions when he diet,. Some of the
boys will do it,  however."
There is no othfli brother, as re-
puted, "but," remarked Mr, Rear-
aon, "I have a sister."
"Tell him of our trip to Lake Louise," commanded His Highness.
The secretary proceeded with a tale
of securing a private diiiine car from
the C.P.R., a band, and collecting a
larg" party of bellboys and others tei
attend the annual dance given for the
hotel bellboys and employees at Lake.
Louise. There was much singing of
"This is thc life," a large dinner,
and wine.
''Vie drank 45 quart Mottles of
champagne," said the. secretary.
"Excuse me, ril bottles," interrupted His Highness. "The manager of
tbe hotel was slightly annoyed because all bis help were intoxicated.
Of course, when I arise at S o'clock,
I always insist on music, but that
morning we bad considerable difficulty arousing the orchestra to their
duties. Tt was somewhat amusing
listening to them trying to play 'I
want to go back to Michigan,' under
the circumstances."
It seems that there has been considerable difficulty in securing a continuous and uninterrupted flow of music For one thinir, the players occasionally get tired out and have to
snatch a little sleet . Then, again,
they will commit social solecisms, as
when the drummer, having! taken an
enormous number of telescopic observations through thc bottom of a
champagne glass, sat lown on. or
through, the drum and the viol'nist
got the bow inextricably tancled up
with the strings.
One of the advance stories from
Banff was bow the Millionaire Kid,
afflicted with ennui, had summoned
together the population ul the town
rnd set fire to his six-cylinder auto-
nubile for their amusement. It was
explained, however, that this is a
libel, the bonfire ot the automobile
having been entirely accidental.
Transportation was not Interrupted,
however, as another motor was secure.I at once.
There was one Btory of a hunting
trip. The retinue included a French
chef and a bartender.
"It wastes time, to mix the drinks
ourselves," explained the secretary.
The hunters, it seems, had pretty
good luck, as Mr. Reardon is a good
shot and secured quite a bag of moun
tain sheep and bear. Unfortunately,
the liquid refreshments gave out on
Thursday, whereas they had planned
to remain until Sat inlay, and it was
necessary to make a quick trip back
to Banff.
"At one point," said the secretary,
"they told us it would take us three
hours and a half to get i'.it 1 Banff.
We made it  In  .1 little over an hour.
II Is wonderful how last one can tra-
e!  when he is thirsty."
"I don't know thut we are very
popular with the theatrical managers," explained tie secretary, "as,
on one occasion when I came t.e Calgary to secure a DUmbei e.f young ladies for our show. I took fifteen up
with me. They all rode on top the
lack going up to the hotels, and you
should have, seen the procession. The
[er -ays now that they have
such swelled heads that he can't do
anything w-ith them."
"Do we take an orchestra with us
nn nnr fishing trips? Why, of course;
didn't you know that. It makes fishing ever so much easier."
At this moment one of the body
guard who had heen introduced as
Mr. Neville, stepped Into the other
room to confer with another one of
the staff. The newspaperman chanced
to ask just then:
"T understand that you have a deter* ive as a personal bodyguard?"
'Sh-h, sh-h," whispered The Presence, laying n finger over his mouth
and Indicating Neville in the next
with his either hand, "say nothing."
It seems that Mr. Neville is the
ve, reputed t.i Me .. Sr.Miami
Yard man.

1 ii the secretary proudly, "ran from

that had not yet been settled because he had not definitely left Banfl.
The secretary explained that Mr.
Reardon, at the time, had two
blooded horses in tbe stables at
PantT, worth far more than the bill,
which had not been forgotten.
"I think it was a surprise to
them," stiid Reardon, "when I pulled
the cash out of my pocket and paid
them. They thought I would give a
cheque and they would turn it down
and hold me all night. It merely
shows the convenience ol having a
little sjiare change in one's pockets."
"Po ye ,ti usually carry around that
much'"' queried the newspaperman.
"Oh, ves, $l.ft(10 or $50(10 for emergencies," explained the secretary.
Rumor has it. that the Millionaire
Kid and his retinue are soon to de-
tart. Questioned on this score Mr.
Reardon said that he is going out
for a little visit with former Lieuten-
ant Governor Dunsmuir, of British
Columbia, but expects to return soon
to  Calgary.
Todav The Presence, and his retinue, are going out for a little duck
shooting. They were out lrokimr for
some chicken shooting on Thursday,
Rnd his staff told with elation of the
wonderful shot made by the Million-
eire kid when he bagged a Hungarian
tdtensant, which flew up in front of
their automobile while they were
travelling thirty miles an hour.
"He shot right between my head
end the chauffeur's," said the detoc-
tive proudly, '''bang! just like that.
Near'y scared me to death, but be
got the bird.'-
Asked his age Mr.  Reardon replied:
"You can tcM everybody thnt I     am
irs old on December 4 next, and
BS B  "acting shot ho added,  nnd tell
them all to =»nd me presents."
Former factor Expounds
Ideals of Club
Speaking to the members' ol the
Womens' Canadian club on "Ideals of
.. Canadian Club," Pr. Paget, dean of
Calgary, said that Revelstoke was
very dear to him on account of associations, as he had at one time been
rector of the church here.. He was
very glad to see a Canadian club
formed here, and he believed it was a
ctep forward. He said it would be a
nucleus for any kiud of public work,
as it is often very difficult to get a
good public work done without some
sort of an organisation of this kind
I j start it. He then spoke ol being
present at the birth of both the mens'
tnd Womens' Canadian clubs of Calgary and bad given the first address
at the womens' club.
In taking up the topic Ur. Paget
Bpoke in part as follows:
"The aim of the Canadian club is
to foster patriotism, to encourage
' i'ly of the Institutions, history,
arts, literature and resources ol Canada, and tn unite t anadians in such
o-ork for the welfare and progress of
the Dominion as may be desirable
:,nd expedient. Taking the tirst
1 base "to foster patriotism," that is
to give an unselfish love and devotion
iur country and motherland, it
is easier to cultivate this spirit In a
small community than in a larger
list as it was easier ior the
early Romans to be more patriotic
thnn the ni.'mbers of the whole Roman empire. Horatius was a citizen ot
Rome, while St, Paul was a member
of the whole empire. V.'o are In the
position of Paul and should have an
'   in  thc whole  British cmjiire.
"On August 4, 1915, when war was
declared, the old Motherland, grey
with her years and trying to maintain peace, stooped down and picked
up the gauntlet that the foe had
flung nt her feet. Believing that she
Was entering into a war of righteousness against military tyranny she
called on her sons for helji. Her sons
eame from all over the empire nnd
I around the old flag. There
never waa a response in old Rome
like it. This shows that our spirit Is
le.itbin, stronger, deeper, than lt
ever was. And Mack of this response
is the home, where patriotism and Its
i rinrinlep are Instilled into our coming  eitl/ens.    Our  children   must      be
taught love of home, town, province,

til Rhodes was an example oi this
kind of patriotism. He was born iu
a country parsonage in England and
at the early age oi 17 went to
^outh Africa, settling in Kimberly,
a model city. Here he immaseed immense wealth and obtained great iu-
Iluence. He used both to make Kim-,
berly a model city. He then set to
work to make South Africa a better
place to live in, using all his influence to bring about Kindly relations
between the natives and whites, aad
also between British and Dutch settlers. But Cecil Rhodes never forgot
tbe Motherland. He still remembered
that be was a member ol the great
British empire. He was an example
of splendid loyalty to home and empire, and an exponent of national
patriotism. He lelt as a monument
the Rhodes scholarships which will be
of lasting benefit to the whole Anglo
Saxon race.
"Now this is an am' "f commercialism and it is very hard to keep these
high ideals of patriotism always before our children, to teach them that
public service is to be chosen above
private gains; to encourage young
people to no into the stormy sea of
public life. Not. onl. niu 'iir children tight military tyranny, bu they
must figbt also corruption and i "lill
crence in politics that saps the very

In closing Dr, Paget said, "If we
Bucceed in Instilling the ideal that
public service is to bc chosen before
private gain into our children'*
minds, then the Canadian club will
have done the country a grent service."
Mrs. Robblns moved and Miss Dixon seconded that a vote of thanks bo

voted to Mr. Couche's orchestra for
tendering several splendid selections
