"What   Happened   to   Jones"
Promises to be Great
What Happend to Jones? Tbis tip-
tup comedy which has held tirst rank
for twenty years as the greatest ol
laugh producers in any language will
be given next Wednesday evening in
the opera house by the Amateur Dramatic .Society. For several weeks
past this club bas been rehearsing
diligently, and the play will be presented In their usual good style. Twelve
performers are taking part and each
one is weli fitted to bis or her parti
cular role. Some new members will
be seem for the Brst time; -Miss Edna
(linn in the character part of an ancient but romantic maiden lady; Mrs.
H. Squarebriggs as leady lady ir.iibe
jiart of "Cissy"; Mis< Millie Hobert-
aon as Marjorie; Marry I'arker ln the
double role of a policeman and the
superintendent of a sanitarium; and
Robt. Squarebriggs who is fitted to
jierfcction with the part of the 'Bish-
op of Ballarat.' Another new actor,
Glen Urquhart will 1" quite disguised
as an escaped lunat.c who thinks he
is an Indian, while Jack Sibbald
starts all the trouble when he leads
"Ebenezer" to see a prize fight
"purely in the Interest, if science."
Capt. R. Sawyer, all old favorite
with Revelstoke audiences makes his
reappearance after an absence from
the stage of s'veral years. He will
b" welcomed and found as comical as
ever acting "Ebenezer Goodley," a
serious old professor ol anatomy who
jets led badly astray. Miss Francis
Lawson appears in a Comedy character part "Thelma." a Swedish servant girl. Her performance is a laugh
from start to finish, and even those
who bave seen and admired her acting most frequently in past plays will
be surprised to see how versatile is
her stage talent.
The part ot "Jones," who travels
for a hymn hook house, Is taken In
tine form by W. A. Sturdy. "Mrs.
Goodly" and Minerva will be played
by Mrs. W. A. Sturdy and Miss Mary
Paget, respectively.
The whole plot uf the jilay centres
around Jones' efforts to pass as the
real "Bishop of Ballard" whose
i lothes he assumes as a disguise to
• scape the police when they raid the
ball where the prize fight takes place.
The arrival of tbe genuine bishop
('.implicates matters hopelessly.
The m-isic for the play is in charge
ol Mrs. H. H. McVity. After the play
ihe floor will be cleared for dancing,
(iuring which time the Indies of the
hospital guild will dispose of refreshments Ma lu cafeteria," te or coffee
with Kaiiilwichws, etc.
Last but not 'bast Dr. Hit, Sr.,
with an unlimited Bupply of good
rordwood guarantees to have the op-
t-ra lions* thoroui-hlv warmed for the
I lay   "What Happened tn  Jones."
Methodist Ckvch
 Held Rally
A delightful evening was spent at
thc Methodist congregational rally
on Wednesday night, when a suitablo
program was rendered and light refreshments served. One of the features of the evening was a brief address
from the Rev. C. Mantbrop, of Vancouver, missionary to the Scandinavians—who referred In touching terms
to his early years and the parting
words of his mother in Norway. Two
pieces were plnycd by the orchestra,
directed by Miss Sheila Dickey, an»l
two hymns sung effectively by the ladies quartette—Jerusalem thc Oolden
and  Rescue the Perishing.
The reading by Miss Paulding, ol
Robert of Sicily, was appropriate to
the occasion, as was the familiar
battle hymn of the Republic, sung by
her brother, with the rollicking chorus, dory, Glory, Hallelujah.
It was the largest gathering ol ths
kind held ip vears and greatly enjoy- j
id. References were made to the'
question eif union, and the present

Whist Drive
Is Success
The whist drive and dance iu aid of
St. Peter s church on .Monday nignt
iu the Masonic hali was a decided
success,  hoth financially  and socially.
Tbere were twenty-one tables of
whist, the first prize an art reading
Ian p going to Mrs. H. Wood and Mr.
Qrenfell, one of our of our recruits,
who is a brother of Br. Qrenfell, the
noted missionary of Labrador, was
fortunate in winning the tirst prize

Private Fred Fraser and Mrs. H.
After the whist drive refreshments
were served a la cafeteria during
which Mrs. H. Ooddard charmingly
rendered a solo and Mr. R. (.!. Lawrence as usual delighted bis bearers.
The music for the dance was gratuitously given by Miss Lawson, Mesdames Oodard, Procunier ami Hobbs
and Messrs. Boyle and Baker, and
was thoroughly enjoyed by the large
number present.
The Honorable Thomas Taylor has
done strenuous work as the head of
the Public Works department as the
conditions at this time of the roads
trails and bridges throughout tbe
! rovlnce gives ample evidence. When
Mr. Taylor took charge of the work
the demands from every juartcr were
urgent and necessary and most 'faithfully did he perform his part. There
is not an improvement to which he
has not given his personal  attention,
i nd he displayed excellent judgment
iu surrounding himself with competent men who thoroughly understand
their business. The miners, ranchers,
farmers and townspeople bayo a reason to feel thankful (or thc work
done by Mr. Taylor, and now holding
the portfolio of Education and Provincial Secretary, which includes tho
supervision of public buildings and
public institutions, his experience of
the past will give assurance of success in the future.

It is no mere figure of speech to
Bay that the government and the
country are fortunate iu securing the
services of such a strong cabinet, as
a short recital of their achievements
will attest.
The Hon. Thomas Taylor, who takes uji the portfolio of provincial Sec-
it tary. was born in London township,
Ontario, on thc 4th of February, W66.
Mr. Taylor's father wus a native eif
Ireland, while his mother was born in
Ontario. Mr. Taylor was reared on
the farm, and attended the graded
and high schools of his native district until his father's death. He subsequently followed a course ill studv
m the commercial college ai London,
Ontario. Later be aus articled to
the law firm of Taylor & Taylor, for
two years. In 1885, being than a
youth of twenty \ears old and full of
ambition and energy, be went to
Winnipeg in search eif greater opportunities, and filled various positions
there until 1KKS, in which year he
came to British Columbia, where he
remained in the service of thc Canadian Pacific railway until 1894. In
the year 1K«') be went to Donald, in
connection with the mechanical and
store department of the Canadian Pacific railway, and f'ir one year had
charge of the company's store at
North Bend. After leaving thc service of the Canadian Pacific, he took
over the management of thc branch
Itores of 0. B. Hume & company,
located at Revelstoke. He subsequently had Charge ol their store at
Trout Lake City, end later became a
partner in the firm, taking an active
part in its management until 1900,
Mr. Taylor still retains a financial in-
("rest in the concern, which In a very
intensive mercantile establishment

From 1894  until   1898,   Mr.     Taylor
served as minitiu recorder for the pro
uncial  gOVei ''    and  also  acted as
postmaster it Trout Make, Tn isno
he wns eleete . to the provincial legislature by thl eople ol Revelstoke,
being furthered honored by re-elcctiou
in. 1903, 1907, 1909 and 1912.. In 1908
be was called into the government,
and on the 21st of December of that
year was sworn in as Minister of
I ubllc Works. His labors have ro-
ceiveel the eudorsement of both part
ies, and the importance of his accomplishments are manifest in the sujen-
did system of jirovincial roads
throughout the jirovincc. He has en
deavored to keep his road superintendents in close touch with up-to
date methods of mad construction, always advocating the use of the most
modern methods of machinery. He is
the originator of the trans-provlncla]
road, one ill the finest highways on
t lie   Pacific coast
Too much cannol l.e said of Mr.
Taylor's sj ecial activity in the de
partmeni  ol  Public  Works,   in    1911
I he Department of Railways was added to the Department of Public Works
and thus much additional responsibility devolved on bim. The Department
of Railways has to do with the for.
mation of all railways, the incorporation of the same, the approval of
the line, right-of-way, etc., and in
fact any matters in connection with
steam und electric roads, adjustment
of rates, ct". Mr. Taylor's duties require all of bis attention, and will
not permit of any outside interests,
lie is a conscientious .ind hard working Minister. His unbounded faith in
the  future of the  province  and  act.ua]
knowledge of his possibilities bus
made him ambitious to play his
part in  its final  development.
He was one of the organisers of the
famous Cranby Smelting and Rofining
Company, whose holdings nnd opera
tions now constitute It. the greatest
enterprise of the kind in the Rritish
empire, nnd among the largest tn the
world. Grand Forks was the site
ibosen for the smelter and refinery,
and as a r.'siilt of the initiative ol
thc company an era of progress anil
development wns ushered In which

the Kettle Hiver Valley, nnd led to

Mr. F'un.rrfcit is president of the
Hastings Shingle Manufacturing company, and for many years devoted
much time and attention to the develi
opment of the industry, with such
niccess that today it stands as tte

The new Minister of Finance and
Agriculture founded the town of Coleman, near the British Colum: ia border, establishing at that point Che
works of the International Coal ami
Coke Con.pany, which he founded. W?or
many years be was thc active head of
the company, whose holdings constitute one of the big coal mining properties of the country. It has been estimated hy experts that there is .ml-
hcient coal in sight to allow the mines to operate for a period of 130
years at a profit, providing there is a
market for the product.
Mr. Flumerfelt founded the America
Trust Company in 1901. He is still
president of the company, in which he
holds a controlling interest. He was
one of a number of men in Montreal
who organised a company, in which
he is the chief stockholder, to absorb
and control large manufacturing concerns all over the world, and cheapen
ihe cast of producing certain classes
of commodities. This company now
controls several large concerns ,n
England, two in France, with a very
in.portant branch in New York. This
is the first case on record where a
distinctly (Minadian concern has invaded the commercial field in Europe
and assumed a controlling interest in
any great business houses.
He is also one of the original share
holders of the Oreat West Life Company, ard for many years has been
one of its directors. For a long period he was a director of one of tne
thief manufacturing concerns of Cru-
ada. He is president and a director
of the Trust and Guarantee Company
with head office at Toronto, whicli has
assets which total between $13,000,000
and $11,000,000.
The new Finance Minister was for
many years the active manager of the
western interests of the Eastern
Towrnhips Hank, and as a result of
his initiative branches of the bank
were established at many points 11
the west, including Vancouver avA
Victoria. The Eastern Townships
bank was later absorbed by the < Met ■
adian Hank of Commerce, and he waa
given a seat on the directorate, wtii ti
he still occupies.

SATURDAY,  .1 \NIM\RY  1,  1916,
So far     as we can gather from Mr.
Brewsters  interviews  and     from   tho
which Messrs. Flumerfelt, Tisdall and
Campbell possess, have been willing
to devote their best energies to the
I romotion of tbe public welfare. This
is the view taken everywhere as well
without as within the province. Even
those persons who on political
grounds may be expected to adopt a
critical attitude towards any Conservative administration, frankly concede that in these new departmental
heads the province will have the services of men of proved integrity and
Congratulatory telegrams in great
numbers were received by the Premier
and his colleagues from all parts of
Canada. Tbere is no question at all
about the new cabinet commanding
confidence everywhere.—Victoria Col-
not there. Either his man has lied to
him 'or Kitty has played them hoth a
trick.—At the Empress.

handsome way they treated thi   sold
HI'      boys  at   ibe drill   ball  here.      On
Xmas. day the dinner presented to
the soldiers by the city and ladles
of the district was a credit to the
patriotic    spirit    of the leading citi
i'.ens of Revelstoke, and the soldiers
sat down to a dinner worthy of the
best in the land It would be useless
to go aitii details eif the sumptuous
lepast but suffice it I i say that no
thing was forgotten, even the decorating of the table demonstrating the
thoroughness and efficiency of a carefully thought out plan to egive the
soldier boys a real happy Xmas. To
realise how the men appreciated the
hospitality of the citizens of Ri vel
sti ke a brief visit to the hall "ti
\mas. day would have been necessary
when Capt. R, II. Sawyer, officer
commanding lC2nd regiment, C. l-M F,
railed for three cheers for the city
und the ladies of the district—the
rafters shook with the vibration of
the lusty cheers e.f the men and repeated cheers rang through the hall.

Notes from the cTVlines
The Consolidated Mining and Smelting compnny has put on the market sullicient of its stock to  provide
'a further capital ot about $500,000 for
the development of thtf smelter works
at    Trail.   The Sullivan mine    north
| of Cranbrook, is stated to be now
proving to he one of the best zinc
mlnss on the continent. The first of
the large buildings at Trail for the
zinc plant has been completed. Thi
electro-chemical     plant     includes the
I largest motor-generator set yet installed in Canada. This company, by
its conservative financial and progressive mining policy, haB established a high reputation. It is stated by
competent mining men that the value
of its assets are now 'fully appreciated by investors. For irrstance the
company's Rossland mines are assured of as grent a production as the
camp hns yet recorded, nnd that      is
, about    !f56,M'D,(MM)'.   Tt has a valuable
I interest in Toad mountain as well ns
its silver-lead mines in Am~wor.h district. It is proposed to send all the electrolytic refining if, copper to the
jdant, to which converters nre now
being added.
The  increased jirices tor the  meta's
;\\ill make a big difference to the value of thr mineral production of British Columbia this year.   The rise   in
silver from  47 cents to 55  cents   per
oz.,     comes too late in the year     to
make n.uch difference,  thoueh  it     Increases    tho value of the silver   pro
educt'on by $25,'00O a month.   Thc   Increased     value in th" price of copper,
; together   with  the larner  production,
accounts for an increase over corres-
pcndlng conditions ot last year of
dose on $5CO,0<)0 a month. The price
di lead has increased 33' per cent. The
London market for lead shows an increase of 33 per cent. Unfortunately
zinc jres of this province have not
benefitted much by the boom in zinc
in the States, owing to the fact that
American siielter works would not
buy here to any great extent and the
Slocan mines have had ditliculty in
marketing their zinc product. The
Montreal price of lead, on which the
I rice of British Columbia producers
is now based, has been keeping steadily around (ii  cents per tb.  of late.
A number of properties in British
Columbia have been tied up In what

States. These 3hells have a market
value of $14 to $2& per ton. The fishing for the shellB is done under license from the Ontario Fisheries and
,Gauie Department, under a royalty o{
one dollar per ton.
As shown in our illustration, the
button discs are cut from all parts of
the shell, some of the discs being 11-
IG th's of an inch in thickness. They
are afterwards split to the required
thickness for buttons.
After the discs are cut from the
shell, there is still a use found for
what might be considered a factory
waste. The pcrtorated shell is ground
up nnd sold for chicken grit, for
which it is admirably adapted.

Tho following is an interesting des-

has ajij cared in an English publication. In this connection it is of interest, to remember that one of these
jialatial trains was eciuijiped by the

The     first coach of the train is the

for  the  purpose of concentrating

When the train reaches the ambulance convoys come to it with their
freight of wounded men. This is an
impressive moment. Instantly thc
train becomes the scene of great activity, an activity ordered and controlled. The oflicer commanding sorts
out patients, tilling some coaches
with stretcher bearers, othcrB with
sitting cases. Orderlies nre busy
along the side of the line. Some are
carrying stretchers, others helping
n.en to walk, and others carrying

sisters in the wards are directing the
placing of patients. EverJ one is
busy. Then the work ends, the cars
disapjiear arrl the journey to the

This is what one of thc men in thc
Royal Field Artillery, who himself has
fought with the guns ever since the
letreat from Mons, wrote to a friend:

King     Peter is a real soldier.     Ho

front  when  he was so weak he could
hardly     sit     his  horse.   There is  a
story told of the king riding   up   the
trenches    where    hiB    brave soldiers
crouched,  their ammunition gone, but
leady     to use their  bayonets     upon

physical, mental and moral well     being ot the rising  generation  up     to
anything like the proper standard.
Only a tew years ago physical edu-
(at inn   was   thought   little  of,   special
iimliiy exercise was lelt to a few enthusiasts who were tolerated but not
encouraged, and regular physical
training was not at all compulsory
excepting in the army, etc., where it
was used more as a drill and as .i
.-jeans of giving the men enough work
to keeji them in good health. In
those days too the training was burdensome. The old methods of Swedish and German drills were in vogue,
('•ry, hard work and exceedingly uninteresting, producing erect, strong
men with hard overdeveloped muscles
Movements were all machine like and
lequlred long training and hard practice. The gymnastics and athletics
\ ere lelt entirelj to the more proficient and better trained competitors,
■iiil specialising in one branch of
competition was considered the course

NMiw-a-ilays the world is waking up
lo the fact that physical training

and Robert J. Roberts realised that
: v nasties and athletics should bo

ideas were taken up by the colleges

sympathy that flowed to King Albert
more than a year ago in Blnii ti r

the king galloped towards the enerxry,
and his soldiers springing to their
feet followed him in a charge that
made a panic iri the Austrian lines.
Tins story is vouched for hy Prince
Alexis, and is recorded hy Jamea
Walter Smith in the Boston Transcript.
King Peter had his miltary education in France, where he was in iv.le
with his father and mother. He .'as
trained m St. Cyr, and when the
Franco-Prussian war broke out he
hastened to offer his services. Few oflicers had more exciting experiences
in the course of this war than "Red
Peter," as he was called. Three times he was taken prisoner hy the Germans. Three tin.es he made his escape and joined thc French army and
in the mil was given the Legion of
Honor for his soldierly services. Later on he took part in the rising in
Herzegovina, and in the Russo-Turk-.
ish war. He had, therefore, something to do with establishing Serbian
ind pi ndence. Hut the reigning dyn-
.sty would have nothing to do with
him, and he remained in Geneva and
Paris, a royal exile, until the dramatic assassination of Alexander and
Draga made it possible for him to re-
urn to Belgrade as king.
Tn the early years of his re gn he

Fail ine to denounce the regicides, be

and was boycotted by most of the

•appearance, for he is small and thin,
nnd wears pincenez, and his hawklike
face and heavy moustache gave an
almost corr.lc opera touch to his person.He has shown, however, an attachment to bis country's interests
that should endear him to the people
should he survive the war, and
Ehould be desire to resume the throne

line oef the jihases of the war thn
public is inclined to underestimate,
but which is of great military Importance, is the British submarine activity 'lL-ainst German ore carriers
and transports in the Baltic. Tho
British navy blockade ol Germany
has hereti fere not availed to deprive
the Central Empires of ores and met-
also necessary for munition manufacture, because the Baltic sea wus open
and a lartre traffic was built up with
Sweden, a large iron producer.
Through Norwegian and Swedish
jiorts great quantities of contraband
have been iroinsr into German ports to
the creat advantage of the beleag-
ured Central empires. The subroutine
campaign has, however, upset this
prettj Teuton arrangement. Five ore
carriers helonging to German firms
! ave 'een sunk, a fleet .if more than
thirty 1 is been tied up in Swedish
M iii ois, and a Swedish steamer load"
ed with ore for German destination
has been captured and taken into a
Russian jmrt. Tne Germans uro
proposing te. convey their transport
' "ts with warships, but obviously
the British submarines would wei
come the target. The entrance of
British submarines Into the Baltic
campaign ends German attempts to
full control of the Baltic. Even in
this inland sea their fleet cannot
safely put out for a cruise. Thus
Germany is being isolated for importing purposes from thc north. On
the east and west she is confronted
by enemies. The Balkans remain as
her one hone for drawing new
strength into her campaign and to
replenish the supplies, both for war
and peaceful purposes, that now have
■ m -i low. The lesson thai the British navy can reach Into remote seas
Is not likely to be lost on  Sweden.

meat rather than appear only as     a r
covering to the muscles. The great _^—
secret in producing a carcass of beef
is to treat an animal in such a way
that fat grows with it during the entire period of its life time. It is unfortunately thc too common prncticc
of Canadian beef raisers to produce
ell the fat that, an animal carries in
the course ol a few months. Much of
the fat put on in this way is deposited on the outside of the carcass ; it
is largely wasted, as it is useful for
little else than tallow. The carcass
that dresses out showing specks and
streaks of fat throughout thc lean
tissue commands the highest price.
The only way to be sure of prime
quality is to maintain thc animal in
good condition by a system ol liberal feeding from birth to maturity.
Then tbe finishing jieriod ls comparatively short, and the carcass produces the highly desired marbled  beef.
