Bountiful Turkey Supper in Y.M.C.A. is Largely Attended

The Thanksgiving day holiday was
Universally observed in Revelstoke
tm Monday. The feature of the day's
celebration was the annual turkey
supper at the Y.M.C.A at which in
thc evening 264 persoiib were served
witb a bountiful and appropriate
The day was somewhat chill, which
lessened the number of hunting parities and outdoor excursions, but
many family gatherings took place
and quiet enjoyment, was the order
of the day. lu the evening a joint
Thanksgiving service took plnce in
tin Methodist church ut which the
congregations of St, John's and the
Methodist churches combined. Tlie
Y.M.C.A. was thronged all day, and
in the evening large crowds attended
the  moving picture theatres.
Bunday was a perfect autumn day.
The sun shone brightly and there was
en invigorating crispness in the nt-
mosphere, The note of Thanksgiving
was sounded in all churches, and ap-
propriate Bermons were preached. The
Bervice at St. Peter's church was attended by Kootenay Masonic lodge
which marched in a body to the
church In the evening from the Masonic temple.
Thanksgiving and a voice of satis-
faction was beard throughout tho
city in Monday when the crowds who
attended the, annual Thanksgiving
supper at the Y.M.C.A. given by the
Ladies Auxiliary rose from the feast
Bpread for them. "Bigger and better
than ever," may truly be said of the
event this year. Two hundred and
sixty-four people wer< served and
bountifully so, by Mrs. T. Kilpatrick
and her efficient Btaff of helpers. Four
tables stretched the entire length of
the Y.M.C.A, gymnasium and these
were a thing of beauty when the
doors were opened and the lirst crowd
filed in to take its seats. With the
shining napery, gleaming silver, lighted candles and 'lee. nat ions of (lowers,
autumn berries nnd foliage, they were
e Bpeaking tribute to the artistic
taste of those who had their preparation in hand, and their load of
tempting      viands  upheld  the already
enviable reputation along culinary
lines enjoyed by the Indies of Revelstoke.
The children's table was in charge
of Mrs. Downs and no happier, better
■satisfied crowd of youngsters could
have been found In the Dominion last
night than those Under her kindly and
generous care.
The other tables were in charge of
Mrs. I.veins. Mrs. C. R, Macdonald
and Miss Raymond, assisted by a
number of young ladies whu left nothing (.. be desired In the way of attention and service ro tbe guests pre-
In the heavier and more arduous
but      none     the less  necessary  work,
material assistance was given by   A,
Thomson ;i• -■ 1 his staff and several
members .>f the Y.M.C.A..
while the supper was In progress
several much enjoyed piano solos
wer'     rendered by  Mr. Brand,     the
new      organist  of  St.   .1.din's church.
After all "had eaten and were fllled"
the people seemed loath to deparl
and little groups of visiting friends
were found all over the building and
n socinl time was enjoyed.
On Monday from early morning till
late in tho evening the Y.M.C.A.
building Was the centre "f much enjoyment. The bowling alleys hummed
to the roll of the maples. Good rcor-
fs were made. 264 rolled by ,T. Bez-
ley being the record of the dny, and
also for thc season. His was n great
game, rolling perfect strike • halls
eacb frame. This record will be
hard to bent, but it has been excelled
when W, Brunet of the Business men's
team  rolled  3M last  seanon.
METHODIST chttrctt
Thanksgiving services in the Methodist church were well attended.     On
Sunday    moraine the pastor emphasized some grounds f. r thanksgiving,
pointing out that man's doings put
no bnr on the freedom "I action of
God. The world WSS built in the ill
vine nnchangeablenSss on Immutnblo
foundations. wbleh would be seen
more  and  more  when . the smoke      of
bnttle clears awnv, He knows the
worst nnd lino allowed for it long
ego. Here is the ground of man's
hone nnd irnsi iii tin"' and eternltv.
Tin' all glorloii Oreatoi is true to
Himself,     to    His own mngnnnlmity
and mercy, always. Here is the guarantee that we shall not all be consume 1  together.
Continuing the theme of thanksgiving at night, the pastor made appeal
to the truth that the coming ol
Christ had lifted everything to a
higher plane, given a new conception
of God, introduced a new spirit into
the world. We recognise it at once—
the Cbristlike, which does not push
law aside but goes quite beyond ;
which can have dealings even with
outlaws;wbich goes to the rescue and
delivers from the assailant; which also disarms the assailant; which can
nnd does use force, but seeks no one's
hurt but good. Its'distinctive feature is the sacrificing spirit, seen in
Him who is the Way, the Truth, the
Life. Thc direct antithesis to the
spirit of the world which sacrifices
others to itself, the Christlike sacrifices itself for others—and tor thc
sinful nnd lost! This is hard for humans to grasp—putting the law of
benevolence in the foreground nnd
sacrificing self for others. Theme of
iiu' tges, theme of the angels, placing itself nt the service of the miseries of mankind!
Special   anthems   were  sung   by   the
choir with much appreciation.
On Monday evening Messrs. Bell,
Laing, Somerville nnd Paulding ottered prayer in the union service,
Miss Dickie presiding at the piano,
and F. Paulding singing a solo accompanied by Mrs. Tournier, The
Rev. J. W. Stevenson called attention to the things thnt Cod withholds as being additional reasons <or
thanksgiving, We were inclined to
think of the creature comforts—the
bountiful harvest, food and shelter,
friends, our favored land, when given
for our enjoyment, but te, forget that
(Mid's goodness might also have a
parti in the sorrows and ailictions
Hev. WM I.. Hall said that Canada
was really better ofl today than a
>car ago, or at thc height ot the
boom. Moreover, shining pnges of
history had been written which would
never be effaced. Back of all was the
Master Hand behind the scene, which
make's all things, good and bad. work
together for good—to those that love
tbid. Prayers and addressee were
Interspersed with the singing .if suitable hymns, including the Mariners
hymn, and the service closed with the
The Harvest Festival vas held at
St. Peter's church *tst Sunday. There
were large congregations 'at both services and especially at evensong, as
Kootenay Lodge .No. 15, a. f. ^ A.
M. attended service, In the evening
the rector, the Rev. C. A. Procunier
preached on the following text:
"Greater love hath no man than this,
thnt a man lay down his life for,his
Iriends." The brethren were cordial
ly welcomed heraus.- the speaker was
convinced that their purpose and motives were not for ostentatious dis
jday and advertisement but tor com-
munlon and fellowship with God. In
the final analysis this communion
With Cod is the solid suMstlatum ol
all religions, ' all the diverse creeds
and liturgies, jirayers and symbols
nre individual avenues leading to the
'''straight and narrow way" of communion with (Mid, and because this
trder was founded upon the great
fundamental principle, Truth. Sovereign truth wields the eternal . sceptre
over the minds nnd destinies of men.
It is greater than wine, greater than
women, greater than Kings. Magna

Man must, he a friend.      Friendship
At the monthly meeting of the
Farmers Institute held iu Smythe's
hall on Saturday'evening complaint
was made that Chinese pedlerb are
now buying Okanagan ap, les and are
retailing them to householders without paying a pedlers license. It was
contended that this was illegal and
was also an unfair bandit up upon the
white ranchers.
A committee consisting of A. P.
Levesque and H. J. McKinnon was
appointed to wait upon the city
council t'i ask for a rebate of taxes
on the lot now used by the institute
tor the purposes ot a public market.
The market was reported tc be serving a ust'iul purpose. The sum or
J58 is still owing on the cost of the
is founded upon,love. Love leads to
sacrifice. A friend is not u friend if
he be not willing to make vicarious
suffering for a friend—in short to die
for another. Free Musonr teaches
the supreme sacrifice. Shoulu a t>ro-
t in is life be endangered it calls upon one to "lay down his life for his
Iriends." Great heroic acts are instinctive as illustrated in attempts
nt life saving in fires and drownings.
But anyone can be a hero then, lt,
takes courage and character to manifest that selfsame siurit of sacrifice
in small and insignificant things ot
every day life. After all, brethren,
these are small things. When we
think of our soldier sons and boys
our hearts ache, yet they feel that
morally and spirituully they are no
better than others, yet they are willing to "lay down their lives" (for
And on the other hand we feel
confident that what Masons present
; nd at large, are thankful for j - that
their principle of patriotism is realised in the great wave of Imperialism
which has swept over the Brit i
lire. Before the great war e.idi colony was an entity by itself, hut now
the great pulse of tbe blood tide of
Miitairi's heart iB felt in every distant  extremity of our great empire.
A neither thing we ought to be
thankful for is a partial victory, at
lenst, over a great foe—selfishness.
This tyrant has had his heel on our
neck from time Immemorial, Perhaps
wc have been taught that since man
only lives once he has a' reasonable
light    to as much pleasure, ct n! "t
and freedom as he can get. NM) matter what the state needs, my privilege is pleasure. Tbc age 'aid' "I
live for myself, I thought for t tysell
for myself and myself alone."
But now it is different. We and our
sins are willing to die for . I iers.
The state is supreme to Individual
selfishness, "Who dies if Et ;land
lives?" Another thing we are
fui for is that the almighty dollar,
BO called, has taken its projici a
spective in the picture of lite. Money hus been the god of this world,
but it is not now. The lesson has
been taught "Ye cannot serve ( ml
nnd mammon," and also tbe sol ai■•
admonition .if the parable of the rich
man whose ground brought forth
plentifully and who thought Wltl '
himself faying "what shall I do because T have no room t.i bestow my
fruits?" Aid In- said, "This will ', do,
1/wlll pull down my barns and build
greater,  nnd  there will  I  bestow   all
my  fruits and  iny  | ls"  and  I  Will
say to my soul 'soul, thou hast much
goods laid up for many years, ake
th.ui case, ent drink nnd be merry."
Hut God said, "Thou fool, this night
shall  thy soul  be required  e.f thee."
And finally, we ought to be thankful that the "posture of our daily
supplications" has become n vital
necessity. Men. sailors, soldiers and
civilians, nre praying as they ne-er
have prayed  before.
Let thp Masons not only pray foi
one another but also for the noblu
and heroic men whu aie daily and
momentarily  laying  down   their  lives
for ns in practical exemplification e.f
the profound truth. "Greater love
bath no man Ihnn this, thnt a man
lav down his life for his friends."

Dominion which has produced the
heroes Of Festubert and St. Julien
and the land of the Southern Cross,
whose sons have covered themselves
with glory on the Gallipoll peninsu-

the bond that exists lietween Australia and Canada, and thc aspirations and duties that exist equally
f ir the two great British Dominions.
On the battlefields of Europe the sons
ol each land have poured out their
in the empire's cause and in

in some quarters, and it is significant
to note that this genial tolerance
does not come from where the interests of tbc Liberal party are much

Tabloid Rations For Soldiers.
Each British soldier on active service carries in his kit a small package containing what ls known as an
"emergency rations."
The "einerrency ration" ls wrap-
pel ln a small package. When the
emergency arises the centre band of
the package ls torn off and two
small tin cans are disclosed. One
can contains a quarter of a pound
of concentrated beef and the other
the same quantity of cocoa paste.
The combination of the two foods Ib
sufficient to maintain tbe strength of
the average man for 36 hours, if
consumed in small quantities.
Tbe beef and the cocoa paste may
be eaten dry but greater flavor ls
gained without loss of nourishment
lf the beef Ib allowed to simmer ln
water over a flre, and the cocoa paste
be made into cocoa. The amount of
beef in the tin will make two quarts
of beef tea and the cocoa paste can
be converted into the same quantity
of cocoa.

Another Veteran Gone.
A Crimean veteran of the East

died recently at Alrdrie, thus reducing by one the rapidly diminishing
band of Crimean veternns. With his
regiment he took part in every engagement before the dreaded Mala-
koff Tower, Sebastopol, and after
months of hardship in the trenches,
hi v'1th his comrades of the French
an '. Uritish armies at last took tbe
batteries after a fearful bayonet assault. His bpnors were the British
and Turkish nn dais with clasps, and
the rare distinction of wearintr his
company's French Crimean medal.

The proposed route of this roadway lies througb the midlands ot
Ontario, presumably from Windsor
through Loudou, and Hamilton to
Toronto, then follow the original Indian trail down the Kingston road
and from there to tho Quebec boundary, with a branch line to Ottawa.
While Ontario bas some excellent
roadways, they are nearly all located
north of the district through which
this road would be built, and frequent complaints are heard regarding
the condition of roads along this proposed route, ami the building of such
» trans-provincial highway would
form the backbone for a chain of better roads all across the province.
The location of this road would
seem to ser\- lie' bi il purpose, following tho lino Indicated previously,
mot only because ll would lie througb

This Church Was
Filled by Advertising
Rev. J. Richmond Craig, the pastor ol tbc Westminster PreBbyterlan
church, has trodden stony paths since
hiB arrival some years ago in B. 0.
1 The story is related of an incident
which occurred during Mr. Craig's in-
i umbancy at Princeton, B. 0.
Mr. Craig was holding services In
Princeton and Sunday after Sunday be was faced with a very small
Congregation. Princeton in thoso
Mays was not inclined stronu-ly towards serious things and Mr. Craig
was a trifle downhcaivtcd.
Jim Wright w;is at that time edi-
t.er 'if the "Princeton Star," and Mr.
I'eck McSwaln was superintendent of
the mechanical department. Mr.
Craig called at the Star oflice one
day and told the editor and Mr. Mc-
Swain what  his troubles were.
McSwaln sat upon a stool setting
type, chewing tobacco and smoking a
cigarette. He turned to Mr. Craig
and said, "1'arson, yon don't advertise, that is what Is wrong," then
Peck told him bow be could fill the
church every Sunday if he wished
through the medium of the advertising columns of the Star.
Mr. Craig seized the mggestlon. He
and McSwain drew uji a wonderful
advertisement that week setting forth
the following Sunday the new pastor
could preach on Princeton's peculiar
people and tell them what he knew
nnd set forth the truth.
Tbe advertisement  took up nearly a
In      the  'Star,'   and  wns  of  a
i iat ional  character.     Tbe
was issued,  unite n sensation
