Monday evening wore thoroughly repaid, as the gume was ull that anyone would wish to soe. The Fedi rail
played the Die Hards, and throughout the entire game fun and good
feeling reigned Bupreme, and many
were the laughs (rom the crowd as
some commical stunts were pulled otl
by  the  players.
The teams lined up on time and all
through the tirst hail the play was
fust aud furious, each Bide shot six
goals in the half, for the Federals
the successful shooters were, Lawrence, three; Wood two and Dupont
one; while for the Die Hards, Sibbald got three, Bruce, two and Whito
one. this split things up pretty even
ly. There wire three fouls committed
two by the Federals and one by the
Die Hards. All these were converted
and the scull- at hall time was 13 I'll in favor e,f the Die Hards.
The next half carried the same
spirit as th" first, i very player seem-

and is the score mounted higher and
higher, tirst one aide and then on tho
other it was Impossible for anyone
to tell how the game was going to

The Federals did the better ehootlng
tbis time and the score was always a
little in their favor, hut never
enough to assure them thc victory,
Wood did most ol the succeistul
uliootiug loi the Federals, getting
three ^oals, and Lawrence and (Jordon netted two each, for the other
side White trot two and Bruce one;
each eeam converted a foul making
the linal sroi'r ol 21 to '.'- in favor o(

game was that all tools committed

A very delightful 'At Home' was

last evening at the Selkirk
hall. Written invitations were
sent out last week to a number of
guests, who were entcrta'.ned during
the first of the evening to a short
concert, and afterwardB to a dance.
The program was opened by a piano
selection by Miss Parker, then Mr.
Alex Grant, who is Past Dictator of
the Moose lodge, made a short speech
of welcome, and introduced the
Worthy Dictator, Dr. Ernest H. S.
McLean, who gave a very interesting
address, it being chiefiy a short
synopsis of the history of the Moose
Order. Mr. H. V. Morgan then sang,
"Heroes and Gentlemen," in his usual splendid style, und was heartily
encored, and gave, "I'll sing the
Songs of A.rabv," Mrs. Fyfe sang for
the first time in public 'in Revelstoke
and quite delighted her audience by
her rendition of "Killaruey." For au
encore she guve, "Old B. 0, is ever
Home Sweet Home to me;" it being
a new song in this part oi the country
and heard for the first time bore, last
evening. The hit of the evening wus
made when the Worthy Chaplin, Mr.
H. Edwards recited "The Vacation
of Mustaffa" which kept the audience
in smiles, and an occasional burst of
laughter. For a well merited encore
he gave "Thc Sailor's Yarn." Mr.
G.R. Lawrence needs no introduction
to the musical pulijlc, and his rendering of "When the sands of the desert
grow cold," was well received. Owing to a Vad cold he did not sing
again, but for an encore told a short
story. Mrs. iFyfe sang another Scotch
song. Mr. Adam Bell was heard to
good advantage in a song called
"Three for lack," and "Its just like
bein' at Hame." The singing of
"God Save the King" by tbe audience concluded the musical part of
the program. Refreshments were iben
eserved, and Miss Parker was the
pianist for the dan-e that followed,
the Scotch reel being played by Mrs.
W.A. Sturdy. The surplus cakes were
auctioned by Mr. G. R. Lawrence for
