How the Festive Season Was Observed
in the City of Nelson-Generous
Fall of Snow Helps Things
Along.
It is not very often In one's llfo
that an opportunity is afforded of celebrating the last Christmas of a century. Kveryone has grown moro or
less fond of this old century, wliioli
has hee�� pursuing the even tenor of
its way since away back longer than
moat of us oan remember. A great
many joyous Christmas seasons have
marked its progress, and the last one
was oelobrated in NelBon in a manner
b.ntt'ng the dignity of the hoary
headed old century. Over a vista of
mud that told the whole tale of two
montfe'l weather, Nelson citizens had
been looking eagerly for frost and
snow, and many silent prayers went
up for a white ChriBtmas. It
was a white Christmas. There
was a fall of snow last week but
warm weather soon played havoo
with it, and further promises of mud
were in evidence the day beforo
Christmas. Hut in the evening tho
low hung clouds which gathered all
tbe sun's rays to themselves turned
loose their burden of snovr, and all
night it silently fell, transforming
Nelson into a city cf the whitest purity. Houses, new-roofed with "the
beautiful," trees with their branohes
bending gracefully under their load of
���nan. fences crowned by their toppling lines, the ground hidden away
under its spread, the very telephone
wires transformed Into thin threads of
white���the whole Olty tucked cosily
under its white mantle���it was an
ideal Christmas. All day too, the generous clouds added to their crystal
decorations and when Nelson went to
sleep last night the roofs overhead
were still gathering tho millions of
tiny flakes that had changed the landscape to a thing of striking beauty.
To paraphrase Mark Twain, all
("lirlstmases are alike, and some more
ao. There were the usual number of
"Mysl" as touzlcd heads emerged
from beds and sleeping eyes blinked
at the good things that Santa Clans
had brought down the chimney, while
little people slept, and crowded into
stockings or hung on Christmas trees.
There was the usual number of joyous shrieks as Johnny's presents were
compared with sister's, nnd a stampede of little feet through the snow to
tho neighbors to see if old Kris Krin
gle had been as thoroughly impartial
as he should be. lint the old man
does play favorites and while he tarried long at some homes and scarcely
looked In at others there were few
houses In Nelson where his presence
was not felt and where hearts were
not made glad.
After breakfast tho houses emptied
themselves on the street and all day
the City presented a very lively and
gay appearanoe. Tho good feelings
characteristic of the season wero
much in evidence and "Merry Christmas" filled the air almost as much as
the falling snow. Church bells rang
out, calling people to worship, the
usual services being conduoted with
the usual spirit. Turkey sizzled in
every oven and plum pudding bubbled
in every steamer and everyone overate
himself as Is befitting tho proper observance of the great Christmas festival. In the evening parties made
merry in many homes and the City
was more lively than ever. Haker
Street presented a scene of dazzling
beauty and those who were not down
town missed a sight that will probably never be ropeated. Eaoh telephone and electric wire ran through
a tube of glistening snow and electric
lights shining on them from evory
dlreution made the width of the
Btreet a net work of strings of white.
Particularly in front of P. Hums St
Co.'B stately block was the sceno magnificent. There many additional
globes mado It lighter than any other
place on tbo street and thc crystal
strands oroBBed and rccrossed In all directions with a strange and beautiful
effect.
The  Hotel Ilnmo wa�� the  icene  of
mush  merriment  last  night.   At   0
o'clock Mr. and Mis. Horace Hume sat
down to dinner with a large number
of guests. One long table, very beautifully decorated with pink silk and
white roses, was set with a Christmas
dinner never surpassed in Nelson.
Among tho guests were Mr. and Mrs.
Fred Burnett, Mr. and Mrs. S. S.
Taylor, Mr. und Mrs. It. J. Hamilton,
Mr. and Mrs. P, Lamont, Mr. and
Mrs. Hlako Wilson, Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Miller, Mr. and Mrs. James
McDonald, Mr, and Mrs. Charles Parker, Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Rutherford,
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. MoNabb, Miss
Lennox, Miss Thorn. Miss Ross, Miss
Gray, Mr. Luther Lennox, Mr. Aaron
Kelly, Mr. Sidne" Poitous, Mr. W.
K. Wasson, Dr. Stoddnrt, Dr. McLennan, Mr.Wolfe, Cupt. Fitzstubbs, Mr.
Charles Lclllanc. After all the good
things were thoroughly discussed the
drawing room was taken possession
of and later in the evening dancing
commenced aud continued until the
new day began when tho guests departed with many words of praise for
tlie hospitality and kindness ot the
popular host and hostess.
While the "old peoplu" were enjoying themselves up stairs a merry band
of youngsters, thirty strong, under
the benign presidency of Mr. Jerry
Kobilliard, had captured the dining
room and wore making merry as only
small boys, with largo appetitics and
Ihe where withal to satisfy them,can.
It was Mother act of hospitality on
the part of Mr. and Mrs. Ilumo who
had asked all the newsboys and messenger boys to dine at the Humo. The
guests sat down at 7:30 and about
nine "three oheciB for Mr. Uume,"
given about twelve times, announced
thut at lust the stomachs would hold
no more and lots of good thing;, had
to be reluctantly left on the table.
The luds thoroughly enjoyed themselves and warmly thanked Mr. Hume
for his kindness. .
Over a hundred guests attended the
null given by the Maple Leaf Dancing Club at Fraternity Hull last evening. The affair was a marked success
and all present enjoyed themselves ex
ceedingly. (ireat interest was taken
in tho waltzing contest und the prize
was awarded to Mr. Perry Wright
aud Mrs. F. Haddock. A cake walk
was also a feature of the evening. Excellent music wns furniBhed by
Wambold'B Orchestra of six pieces.
At the Provincial gaol Christmas
was celebrated by extra rations and a
supply- of plum duff that wus nore
than greatly enjoyed by the inmates.
There was also a cessation of all work
and the prisoners were allowed a holiday.
Tho kindness of P. Burns & Co.
and the Nelson Minor's Un'on was instrumental in making the observance
of Christmas at the hospital very
pleasant.
The marksmen of the City spent the
day on the flats at the Lako shore
Bhootlng for turkeys. The guns kept
cracking away merrily from nine
o'clock In the morning until dark.
Those who found thc target oftencst
and secured tho most turkeys wore
Dr. Hall, A. Troglllus, George Steele
and N. T. McLeod. There will be another turkey  shoot on New Year's.

OFFICIAL INSTRUCTIONS.
How Roman Catholics   Are to Observe
Close of  Year.
Now Y'ork, Dec. 20.���Thc Herald
prints the following:
Oflicial instructions have beon received here from Rome detailing how Roman Catholics are to observe the ceremonial olosing of the year and the
century on tho night of December 31.
It is issued by Cardinal Cretoni, prefect of the sacied congregation of indulgence and rites and signed also by
Archbishop Sognro, secretary of the
.ongregation. The decree is from tlie
1'opc and is addressed to all the world.
"Now that the present age is drawing to a close," it begins, "and a
new one is ubout to begin it is highly
propor thut ull who huve been redeemed by llim in every part of the
world should be solemnly consecrated
to the King of Ages, JeBus Christ, in
order that this gratitude may be
Bhown for the special favors from llim
in tho   past.
"What our Holy .'athcr granted a
year ago by anticipation he also permits by the same decree of the sacred
congiogation of rites, viz:
"That at midnight which ushers in
the January of the year 1U01 the
most august sacrament of the Eucharist may be exposed for adoration in
churches und chapels and that in its
presence oue mass of the feast of circumcision of our lord nnd tho octave
of the nativity may be read or Rung;
and that, moreover, the faithful by
spocial privilege receive Holy Communion either during or outside of
the masa.
"While thinking of some new moans
of increasing the piety of the falthtul
in connection with 'an event so solemn, tho Holy lather learned thnt
many prelates and pious sodalities
anxiously desiro that the faithful of
Christ, moved by an eagerness to participate in tho rich treasury of spiritual indulgences, should everywhere be
invited to come and adore the most
blessed   ouoharist.
"Ab this was In most perfect _ccord
with his own wishes, the Holy Father
has benignly grunted that a plenary
indulgence may be gained by all the
faithful of Christ who, having properly approached the sacraments of pen-
nnce and received holy communion in
a church or ohapel where the most
holy eucharlst is reserved, shall spend
any full hour they please between
midnight of December 111 and the noon
of January 1 before the most august
sacrament exposed to public adoration
and shall moreover offer prayers to
God for the intentions of his holiness. ''
Mr. Harry E. Macdonnell, who has
been travelling freight agent of the
Kootenay division of the Canadian Pacific, haB been promoted to the position
of assistant general freight agent for
the Kootenay division in succession to
Mr. Frank W. Peters, who has accepted a similar situation at Vancouver. Mr. Macdonnell returned last
night from the Coast with this pleasant Christmas box in his possession
and is receiving the congratulations
of his friends today. He will take
charge of his new oflice at once and
will be succeeded in his former position by Traveling Freight Agent Stevens, who at present makes Winnipeg
his headquarters. Mr. Stevens will
enter upon his duties here at the iirBt

sheds. In 1800 he was transferred to
the staff of F, W. Peters as a clerk.
Several years later lie was appointed
contracting freight agent at Winnipeg
and hold that position until 1895 when
he came to Nelson ns contracting
freight agent for tho Pacific division
aud tlie Kootenay. That position he
has tilled until his present appointment.
During his five year's stay in Nelson
Mr. Macdonnell baa made many
friends who will be greatly gratified
to learn of his well deserved promotion.
The position of traveling passenger
agent recently vacated by Mr. W. F.
Anderson, has been filled by the appointment of Mr. Joseph S. Carter,for
many years depot ticket agent at
Winnipeg and well known all over
Canada as a clever railroad man and
thoroughly fine fellow. Mr. Carter
has grown up with the C. P. R. and
is aB loyal to it as all its ollieers. In
the prairie capital he ia one of the
most popular young men and occupies
a very prominent place in a host of
amateur sport organizations. He is
one of the fathers of hockey and bicy-

Prominent mining men who hnve Inspected this property lately claim that
there is practically nothing in Hritish

In an excellent leader on the Christmas season in The Victoria Colonist,
it is said that the universal observance of the Day's festivities is calculated to inspire us with awe at the
amazing fact. If the observance were
due to the influence which our contemporary takes for granted, it would
be as awe-inspiring as it imagines. It
thinks the world is growing more
Christ-like, and because it is it engages more devoutly in the celebration of Christ's mass. Soeptics there
are in thousands who will say that
the immense majority of those nbo
throw themselves so heartily into the
festivities of ChriBtmas Day do so
without a thought of the occasion
they are supposed to celebrate. We
are afraid sober truth will compel us
to admit that this is painfully near
the fact. The celebration has become
a mere fad with too many, and is
turned into an occasion of riotous eating and drinking and making merry,
varied with the extravagant making
of gifts. The observance could stand
a great deal more devoutnees, and a
great deal less display.

"And lt may still exist when some
traveller from New Zealand shall, in
the midst of a vast solitude, take his
stand on a broken arch of London
Bridge, to sketch the ruins of St.
Paul's" The reference is to the Roman Catholic Church, and the passage occurs in Macaulay's review of
Knnko's history of the Popes. It is
one t_at is frequently quoted, and we
are unconsciously reminded of it on
reading the dispatch whieh gives an
interesting account of the imposing
and gorgeous ceremonies which attended the closing of the Holy Door of
St. Peter's Cathedral on the last Jubilee of tne century. We hear frequently
of the decadence of the Catholic
Church. In Macaulay's day, too,there
were plenty to predict ita speedy
downfall. It still exists, however,
and there is nothing within the imagination or ken of man to suggest that
the rare function celebrated in St.
Peter's the other day may not be repeated for centuries yet to come.
The Sandon Paystreak complains
of poor mail service, but by way of
variety blames the transportation
companies for it. In this, we have not
much doubt, it is doing the companies
an injustice ; or if not, Sandon may
consider itself blessed in having no
worse affliction than occasional delay
in the arrival of a train. Trains and
boats arrive in Nelson with a satisfactory approach to regularity, but owing to tho carelessness or stupidity of
some employe of thc Postal Department the mails too often do not arrive
with them. There is not a worse
mail servile" on the continent thnn wo
have in Southern Hritish Columbiu,
and it is not thu fntilt of tho transportation companies. The whole.
postal system, lock, stock, and barrel,
as applies to this portion of her Majesty's Dominion, is sorely in need of
overhauling.
We have a Premier who seems to be
in a fair way of capturing the hearts
of the people by little acts of thought
fnlneBS in the conduct of his own bus
iness. Here is the latest, as related
by The Vanoouver Province: "Since
Hon. Mr. llunsinuir became Premier
of British Columbia he has been doing
many things that make him a unique
cbaracter among millionaire railway
men. The latesv. and one of the most
striking of theiie is the older for a
suspension of all traffic Christmas Day
on thc E. St N. '.nel Company stenm-
ers. It is an order probably without
parallel in the railway history of the
world." Mr. Dunsmulr may not bu
ga .nly, but be promises   to wenr well.

AN IMITATION  BURGLAR.
The Soar. It Gave to a. Young Med.
leal Stndent.
"I had an experience the other night,"
���ulil a young medical student, "that will
surety turn my golden locks to gray It it
91 uuything like it ever happens again."
"I'oor digestion or uneasy conscience?"
"Neither," was the reply. "This was a
told, hard fact���very cold and very hard
tt felt too. It was some time along iu
the early morning hours thnt I was suddenly awakened to feel the cold muzzle
of a pistol barrel pressing against my
forehead! Scared? Well, I Bhould say bo,

.iiiely see, out of the corner of my eye

was no mistake about tbe edge of his
weapon pressing against my head. 'If I
move,' thought 1, 'he may blow my
brains out���his confederate is probably
ransacking the room.' The cold sweat
was flowing freely and vain regrets for
what I hnd done and hadn't done lu my
past life flew through my mind like a
ftock of crows. I fell to wondering if you
wuuld pay to my administrator that

"Come, now, stick to facts!"
"Well, I began to wonder that the confederate did not make at least a little hit
ef noise. The wild humor of burglarizing
my room also struck me. I took a most
cautious peep at the man at the head ot
the bed and saw���my coat hanging there.
An eye paining look at the pistol convinced me that there was no hand ut
the other end of lt. I raised my head out
of its range and quickly reached for it.
"1 could see nobody in my room. But

Value of a LaeTh,
The value ot a good nai red laugh may
be rated low by some pe pie, but many
writers have attested its worth in no
measured terms.
It is not surprising that the merry
Charles Lamb should have snid, "A,
lauifh is worth 100 groaus in any market," but from thc Hps of the somber
1'nl. le one is scarcely prepared to hear,
"No man who has once heartily and
wholly laughed can be altogether or irrc-
claimahly bad."
It was Douglas Jerrold who boldly stated that "what was talked of bb the golden chuin of Joro was nothing but a succession of laughs, a chromatic scale of
merriment reaching from earth to Olympus."
"I am persuaded," wrote Laurence
Kielue, "that every time a man smiles,
hut much more so when he laughs, it
adds something to his fragment of life."
Last of all comes the verdict of Dr.
Holmes, given with his own inimitable
huuior: "The riotous tumult of a laugh, I
take it, Is thc mob law of the features,
and propriety the magistrate who read*

Tha Bisect of the Mirror.
"I hare been noticing a curious little
circumstance at my store," said a Canal
street business man tbe other day.
"There Is a very tine plate glnss in the
side casing of my show window, and
right behind lt Is a handsome mirror.
Ouo day not long ago I observed what
���eemed to be a lot of white dust on the
window lodge and told the porter to wipe
It off. Next day the ledge was as dusty
as ever, and after having lt cleaned half
a dozen successive times I discovered the
cause of the trouble. The mirror wus
certain to catch the eyo of every woman
who passed, and every little while oue

COWAN'S COAL FIELDS.
Spokane People Purchase Adjoining
Property.
A. C. Jameson, V. D. Williamson
and M. C. Cowan, have just returned
fiom the Crow's Nest Pass,where they
have been looking over the coal fields,
says the Spokesman-Review. They
took a trip about 00 miles east of Fernie into the new section which has
just been opened up, and lleddy and
Jameson purchased a coal claim upon
which considerable development has
been done.
The property is located atlllairmore
station and joins the land which has
just been taken up by some llutte capitalists. There are three seams of coal
located on the land, the width of
them being nine, six and three feet,
respectively. Mr. Jameson says the
coal found on the land is clean and
assays as high as any iu the country.
They are now working at a depth of
75 feet.
In speaking of his trip Mr. Jameson
Baid: "The new section just opened
up near Blalrmore is bound to be as
rich as the Crow's Nest Pass. There
is a great deal of excitement over tbe
showings that have been made there.
A party of capitalists has just purchased 1.1 sections ut the station and
they have located 17 seams of coal,
all within a distance of 800 feet. The
width of the seams is from six to
three feet. The coal iB clean and can
be found on the surface.
"There are a number of Spokane
parlies investing in the new district
and in the near future there will be
still more. There are some splendid
chunces to get hold of good propositions, "
Chicago Learned Men   Find  a Way to
Keep the Heart In Action.
Chicago, Dec. 20.���The Record says:
" Experiments on turtles have convinced Dr. Jacques Leb, and Prof. D.
J. Linlgo.pysologist of the University
of Chicago, that common salt in the
blood makes the heart beat. What is
more they say that not only does salt
keep the heart in action but it possibly may cause the heart to beat again
after it shall have been stopped. In
the experimental work,instead of tak
Ing the heart as a whole, a small
strip from one of the ventricles suspended in a solution of sodium chlor-
id3, the strip of turtle's heart began a
series of beats. Separated from all
new connections the lifeless strip of
heart muscle responded perfectly to
the presence of the salty solution.
For weeks the experimenters worked
to ascertain what properties salt contained to cause this rythmic beating
of the heait that were not possessed
by calclium or potassium, the salts of
which enter the composition of the
blood. They found a solution of the
problem in the fact that the action of
sodium chloride was due to the peculiar character of the sodiumions.
They found that a pure sodium chloride solution was destructive of heart
tissues and that by mixing calcium
and potassium solutions with the sod
ium solutions the poisonous effects of
the sodium chloride were destroyed.
