Successful    Entertainment     by
School Children, followed by
Distribution of Presents.
Christmas has come and gone
once more and the hearts of children all over the country have
been gladdened by the "peace
on earrh, goodwill to men" spirit which pervades the air at this
season; but it is safe to say that
in no town of its size in the country could be found a brighter and
happier group of children than
that which, with their parents
and friends, filled Steward's Hall
almost to overflowing on Christmas Eve, the occasion being the
general Xmas. tree and entertainment. The hall was beautifully decorated for the occasion;
the large Xmas. tree standing in
the centre of the platform was
brilliant with the many - colored
candles whose light was reflected
by the numerous gilt and silver
ornaments wound among the
branches; while the eager, happy
faces and beautiful dresses of
the children completed as charming a Yuletide picture as old
Santa Claus would see in all his
Principal Barker, of the public
school, performed the duties of
chairman very acceptably, maintaining good order throughout
the evening. After an appropriate opening address by the
chairman, the following program
was given by the children:
Chorus Maple Leaf
Recitation Leslie Roadhouse
Piano Duet, W. Matthias, Allie Barnes
Drill Song,    Grandpa's Guard    Group
of Boys
Recitation Ruth Layton
Action Song      The Windmill
Recitation Three Boys

Recitation   The Christmas Cure   Constance Kinney
Chorus     Never Forget the Dear Ones
Piano Study Winnie Matthias
Recitation Christina Power
Musical Drill The Little Ones
Chorus Christmas Song
Recitation       My Troubles       Winnie
Recitation     Santa Claus      A. Barnes
Santa Claus Appears
Round Good Night
Among the numbers receiving
special applause were the choruses by the pupils of the school.
They had been carefully trained
by Mr. Barker, and their singing reflected great credit on his
ability as leader as well as on the
pupils themselves. The recitation of Constance Kinney was
also a specially well - rendered
number and shows her to be possessed of much talent and ability
in this direction. In fact the
whole program reflected great
credit on the children themselves
as well as on those who had taken such pains to train them.
At the proper time Mr. J.
Edmonds, as Santa Claus, appeared on the scene, wrapped up
in his usual fur coat, cap, etc.,
and wearing his customary string
of bells. Owing to the very
large number of presents to be
distributed, he brought his private secretary (Mr. L. H. Plum-
mer) to assist him. The latter
wore his official uniform and can,
and, besides rendering valuable
assistance to his master, kept
the whole audience amused by
his laughable sayings and actions.
Over 210 presents were Riven
out. every child in the community being remembered, and receiving also a bag filled with
candies, nuts, oranges, etc.
Before the singing of the
"Good Night" chorus by the
pupils, the chairman called for
three cheers for Mrs. C. A. C.
Steward, who had been indefatigable in her efforts to make
the entertainment a success.
Needless to say, they were given
with a will by the children, as
were also three cheers for the
chairman, called for by Rev. Mr.
After singing God Save the
King, Santa Claus and his assistant shook hands all round and
wished everyone a merry Xmas ;
and, judging by the satisfied
looks and the remarks of the
children, his wish would come
true as far as they were concerned at least.'
Besides those already mentioned, Miss MacKinlay and Miss
Yuill are among those to whom
credit is also due for helping to
make the entertainment a success.
Football Match Score Two to One
Favor Kelowna.
Quite an exciting football
match was played on the Penticton grounds Thursday afternoon
when the Kelowna team met that
of Penticton in the first game of
the season.
L. A. Hayman brought the
Kelowna boys down in his steam
launch, arriving about 2:30 p.m..
the hour at which the match had
been announced to begin. Most
of the business places closed and
a good number of people turned
out to witness the event, notwithstanding a rather disagreeable wind was blowing. It was
3:30 before all the players arrived at the grounds and Norman Hill, the referee, gave the
signal to begin playing. The
Penticton line up comprised, W.
Corbishley, goal; Geo. Corbishley
and Brown, full backs; Huycke.
Rowe, and Wootten, half backs;
Scott, Adams, McLean, Gibbons,
and Johnson, forwards. The Kelowna line up consisted of, Harvey, goal; Hudson and Willis, full
backs; Wilkinson, Davis, Barker,
half backs; Cummins, Fraser,.
Davies, Scholl, and Mathie, forwards.
Throughout the first half, although the wind rather favored
the Kelowna team, the ball was
kept pretty evenly distributed
over the field occasionally coming
dangerously near the Penticton
goal, and then working its way
back to the Kelowna end of the
field. During nearly half an
hour's playing, it was difficult for
the onlookers to form an opinion
as to which side would win. It
really began to look as though
neither side would score. Both
goal-keepers did their work well,
and often by a hair's breadth
kept the ball from passing between the stakes. In just twenty-seven minutes after the start,
the ball, which had been lingering for a time near the Penticton stakes, by a few fortunate
kicks was sent to the opposite
end of the field, where it was
kicked through by Homer McLean, making a goal for Penticton. Fifteen minutes later, just
before half time was called,
Davis scored for Kelowna.
The game was now even and
interest increased ,as the boys
lined up for the second half. In
ten minutes Scholl scored a
second for Kelowna, and after
this the visiting team merely
played defence, while the local
boys vainly endeavored to retrieve their fortunes and make
the game a tie. Darkness coming
on, it was found necessary to cut
the last half from forty-five to
thirty minutes, so the score stood
two to one in favor of Kelowna.
The game, throughout, was
contested in a friendly spirit,
both sides putting up a clean
though vigorous fight. The Penticton boys had only been out to
practice once, while one of their
players was not in the game.
The Kelowna team also lacked
some of their leading lights.

Delight Large a:id Appreciative
The concert given by the Williams' Original Dixie Jubilee
Singers on Monday evening was
the finest musical entertainment
ever given in Penticton. Although the weather was very unfavorable Steward's large hall
was filled almost to its full seating capacity by a most enthusiastic audience. The entertainment
consisted of familiar plantation
melodies and other popular songs.
It was one of the few occasions
on which the people here had the
privilege of listening to the old
favorites, and the manner in
which the clever Dixie Singers
rendered them, left nothing to
be desired.
The company was probably
best in chorus work, although
the solos rendered were also very
good and the quartettes superb.
C. P. Williams was the funny
man of the company and was
perhaps the most acceptable performer, his humor being of the
refined order, and, although rich
in laughter, was at no time offensive. Mrs. Williams has a|
powerful contralto voice and is
also possessed of a great deal of
humor, while the company possesses an exceptionally good
basso in J. S. Crabbe. G. L.
Johnson, the tenor, has a very
sweet voice, powerful enough to
be heard in every part of the
room, yet rich with melody.
Every part of the performance
was bright, clean and enjoyable,
and should the company ever
again visit Penticton, they will
be greeted by a still larger
house. The programme, with
the exception of a number of
extras was as follows :
1. "Bridal Bells," chorus.
2. "We'll  have  a  high  old   time,"
Mrs. Williams.
3. "Ding, Dong,   Bells,"  Mrs.   Wil
\.    "Love me and tho world is mine,"
Mr. G. L. Johnson.
5.   "Massa's in de cold, cold ground,"
Mr. Crabbe.
G.    "Dreaming," Mr. J. H.  Johnson.
7. " Way   down   upon   the   Swanee
River," Mrs. Pitts.
8. "Sunset, "male quartette. Encore,
"Dried apple pies."
9. "Roll around," chorus.
10. "what the chimney sang,"   ladies
11. "Asleep in the deep," Mr. Crabbe.
J2.    "Poor John,'' Mrs. Williams.
13. "Philomel," Mrs. Green.
14. "All in, down and out," Mr.   Wil
15. "The  old  oaken  bucket,"  male
lfi.    "The old flag  never  touched   the
ground," chorus.

To tho Editor of The Penticton
Dear Sir,���Your suggestion in
a recent issue of the Press that
a public reading room be opened
at some central point in town for
the benefit of the large number
of young men in our midst who
are without homes, is certainly
timely and one which will no
doubt meet with enthusiastic
support of the best class of citizens as soon as the matter is
taken up in earnest, and there
could be no more fitting time
than now while the days are
short and so many would be glad
to take advantage of the opportunity to improve their evenings
amid such congenial surroundings as a reading room would
afford. Another point in favor
of an immediate start is that
subscriptions to magazines, etc.,
could begin with the first issue
of the new year.
A very small contribution from
sach one interested Would be sufficient for a beginning. Most of
the daily newspapers would, in
all probability, be willing to donate a copy for such a worthy
purpose if approached on the
subject, and private parties have
offered to contribute other current literature. What is most
needed is a suitable location and
a board of management to see
that the same be kept clean and
comfortable and proper order
maintained. Such quarters as
the front room over Wade's store
or the rooms adjoining the post
office would be very convenient
if they could be obtained on satisfactory terms, or possibly other
quarters might be secured equally desirable.
I would suggest that the Press
follow up its practical proposal
by opening a column for subscriptions for this object and as
soon as the amount reaches $50
that a public meeting be called,
and appoint the necessary officers to take the matter in charge.
Yours sincerely,
The Regular Annual Meeting of the
shareholders of the Southern Okanagan
Fruit Growers' Association will be held
on Monday evening, January 6, 1908, at
8 p.m., in the Woodmen's Hall, over
W. R. King & Co's store.
The purpose of the meeting is the
Election of Officers for the coming year
and consideration of such other business
as may come before it.

Shall We Incorporate ?
The question of incorporation
is one often heard dif.cussed in
Penticton, and there appears to
be a pretty evenly divided opinion
upon the subject. One point,
however, upon which all will
agree is that there are many
questions upon which the powers
given to a corporation couid be
used much to advantage. For
example, in the present unorganized condition of the place, it is
next to impossible to deal with
such questions as fire protection,
water works or electric lighting.
On the other hand, with additional powers, come additional responsibilities. The increase of
taxation would be inevitable.
This, however, may or may not
be considered a disadvantage.
If people are taxed heavier, but
get better returns for their taxation, (he increase may be looked
upon merely as an investment.
If competent men can be secured
to administer municipal affairs,
things may go well; if not, there
is sure to be no end of trouble.
Up to the present time there
can be no doubt that Penticton
has fared much better than it
would have done had it been incorporated and been obliged to
foot the bill in opening up streets
and roads.
The total assessment of Penticton and vicinity for 1908 amount-
e 1 to about $270,009. In 1907 it
hid risen to $420,000. The taxes
c.Elected during the past year at
two-fifths of one per cent., therefore, amounted to about $1,680,
exclusive of school tax, a small
amount to run a corporation with,
particularly as the salaries of
city clerk and city police would
have to come out of that sum.
However, the year 1908 will
see another increase in assessment raising it probably to $600, -
000. A tax of one per cent,
levied upon that assessment
would bring in a revenue of
$6,000. This would be adequate
for improvements and administration. We. are, therefore, 6f
opinion that .it is now not too
early to lay plans for the future
administration of what we consider is destined to become the
largest and most influential town
in the entire Okanagan. The
increased prestige the town and
community would receive from
incorporation, and the increased
public spirit consequent upon the
assumption of self government
would, we believe, adequately
compensate for any increased responsibilities.
sive developments in the future.
With the year 1907 will pass
most of the difficulties encountered by a struggling yaung community, and steady and even
more rapid progress may be expected during 190S. Many of
the orchards will begin bearing
next summer, and this, of itself,
will inspire a confidence never
before experienced. Next spring
and summer will see a growth
and improvement in Penticton
and vicinity far surpassing that
of previous years, and, if the end
of 1908 does not see the population somewhat over the thousand
mark we arc greatly mistaken.

no    figures.
Although no figures, from
which an exact calculation can be
made, are obtainable, it is safe
to estimate the increase in population of Penticton at not less
than fifty per cent, for the year
1907. The population now exceeds six hundred, and, notwithstanding the unfavorable season
for immigration, it is constantly
being added to. This must be
considered very favorable, in
view of the fact that the p!ace
dates its history from little over
two years back. So far developments have been made and people
have subsisted almost exclusively
upon imported capital. Nevertheless the-iniM'ovement work of
The entertainment given by
the Sunday School in the Methodist Church on Friday evening
of last week was well attended,
the building being packed to the
full extent of its seating capacity by the parents and friends
of the pupils. The children,
without an exception performed
their parts well and reflect considerable credit, upon A. E. Bennett and others who were instrumental in training them, as well
as upon the Sunday School itself.
A Very encouraging report of the
work done by the school during
the past year, showing a large
increase numerically, was read
by the secretary; An interesting feature of the programme
was the awarding of diplomas to
the scholars who had taken the
highest number of marks in their,
classes during the year. The
successful pupils numbered fifteen. Rev. Jas. Hood, of Summerland, made a very efficient
chairman. Twenty - five cents
admission was charged, the proceeds going towards the purchase
of a library for the school. The
programme was as follows :

They dine here to-night, and there Is
some talk of our going to them next
week. One would Imagine that such a
match would be very welcome to
Stapieton, and yet I have more than
once caught a look of the strongest
disapprobation in his face when Sir
Henry has been paying some attention to his sister. He is much attached
to her, no doubt, and would lead a
lonely life without her, but it would
seem the height of selfishness If he
were to stand in the way of her making so brilliant a marriage. Yet I am
certain that he does not wish their Intimacy to ripen into love, and I have
several times observed that he has
taken pains to prevent them from being tete-a-tete. By the way, your instructions to me never to allow Sir
Henry to go out alone will become
very much more onerous if a love affair were to be added to our other
difficulties. My popularity would soon
suffer If I were to carry out your orders to the letter.
The other day���Thursday, to be
more exact���Dr. Mortimer lunched
with us. He has been excavating a
barrow at Long Down, and has got a
prehistoric skull which fills him with
great joy. Never was there such a
single-minded enthusiast as he! The
Stapletons came in afterwards, and
the good doctor took us all to the Yew
Alley, at Sir Henry's request, to show
us exactly how everything occurred
upon that fatal nisht. It is a long, dismal walk, the Yew Alley, between two
high walls of clipped hedge, with a
narrow band of grass upon either side.
At the far end is an oid tumble-down
summer-house. Half-way down is tho
moor-gnte, where the old gentleman
left his cigar-ash. It is a white wooden
gate with a latch. Beyond it lies the
wide moor. I remembered your theory
of the affair and tried to picture ail
that had occurred. As the old ma:i
stood there he saw something coming
across the moor, something which ter
rifled him so that he lest his wits, and
ran and ran until he died of sheer horror and exhaustion. There was the
long, gloomy tunnel down which he
iled. And from what? A sheep-dog of
the moor? Or a spectral hound, black,
silent, and monstrous? V/as there a
human agency In the matter? Did the
pale, watchful Barrymore know mo-o
than he cared to say? It was all dim
and vague, but always there is tne
lark shadow of crime behind it.
One other neighbor I have met since
I wrote last. This is Mr. Frankland, of
Latter Hall, who lives some four milea
to the south of us. He is an elderly
man, red faced, white haired, and
choleric. His passion is for the British
law, and he has spent a large fortune
in litigation. He fights for the mere
iileasure of fighting and Is equally
ready to take up either side of a question, so that it is no wonder that he
has found it a costly amusement.
Sometimes he will shut up a right of
way and defy the parish to make him
open it. At others he will with his own
hands tear down some other man's
gate and declare that a path has existed there from time immemorial, defying the owner to prosecute him for
trespass. He is learned in old manorial
and communal rights, and he applies
his knowledge so.netimes in favor of
the villagers of Fernworthy and some
times against them, so that he is
periodically either carried In triumph
down the village street or else 'burned
in effigy, according to his latest exploit. He is said to have about seven
lawsuits upon his hands at present,
which will probably swallow up the
remainder of his fortune and so draw
his sting and leave him harmless for
the future. Apart from the law he
seems a kindly, good-natured person
and I only mention him because you
were particular that I should send
some description of the people who
surround us. He is curiously employed
at present, for, being an amateur astronomer, he has an excellent telescope, with which he lies upon the roof
of his own house and sweeps the moor
all day in the hope of catching n
glimpse of the escaped convict. If he
would confine his energies to this all
would be well, but there are rumnru
that he intends to prosecute Dr. Mortimer for opening a grave without the
consent of tho nevt-of-ldh, beqauuo ne
dug up the neolithic skull in the barrow ou Long Down. He helps to keep
our lives from being monotonous and
gives a little comic relief where It Is
badly needed.
And now, having brought you up to
date in the escaped convict, the
stapletons. Dr. Vortimer, and Frank-
'and, of Latter Hill, let me end on that
v'.'ir.h Is most important and tell yon
more about the Barrymores, and especially about the surprising develop
ment of last night.
First, of all about the test telegram,
which you sent from London in ordt.r
to make sure that Barrymore was really here. I have already explained that
the testimony of the postmaster shows
that the test was worthless and that
we have no proof one way or the
other. I told Sir Henry how the matter stood, and he at once, in his downright fashion had Barrymore up and
asked him whether he had received
the telegram himself. Barrymore said
that be had.
"Did the boy deliver It Into your
own hands?" asked Sir Henry.
Barrymore looked surprised, and
considered for a little time.
"No," said he, "I was In    the   box-
room at the time, and my wife brought
i It ud to me." ���
"Did yon answer it yourself?"
"No: I told my wife what to answer
and she went down to write it."
In Ihe evening he recurred to the
subject of his own accord.
"I could not quite understand (he object of 3'our questions this morning, Sir
Henry," said he. "I trust that they do
not mean that I have done anything to
forfeit  your confidence?"
Sir Henry had to assure him that
It was not so and pacify him by giving
him a considerable part of his old
wardrobe, the London outfit having
now all arrived.
Mrs. Barrymore is of Interest to me.
She is a heavy, solid person, very
limited, Intensely respectable, and inclined to be puritanical. You could
hardly conceive a less emotional subject. Yet I have told you how, on the
first night here, I heard her sobbing
bitterly, and since then 1 have more
than once observed trapes of tears
upon her face. Some deep sorrow
gnaws ever at her heart. Sometimes 1
wonder if she has a guilty memory
which haunts her, and sometimes I
suspect Barrymore of being a domestic tyrant. I have always felt that there
was something singular and questionable in this man's character, but the
adventure of last night bring all my
suspicions to a  head.
And yet it may seem a small matter In itself. You are aware that I am
not a very sound sleeper, and since I
have been on guard in this house my
slumbers have been lighter than ever.
Last night, about two in the morning
I was aroused by a stealthy step passing my room. I rose, opened my door,
and peeped out. A long black shadow
was trailing down the corridor. It was:
thrown by a man who walked softly
down the passage with a candle held
in his hand. He was in shirt and trousers, with no covering to his feet. I
could merely see the outline, but his
height told me that It was Barrymore.
He walked very slowly and circumspectly, and there was something Indescribably guilty and furtive in his
whole appearance.
I have told you that the corridor Is
broken by the balcony which runs
round the hall, but that it is resumed
upon the farther side. I waited until
he had passed out of sight and then I
followed him. When I came round the
balcony he had reached the end of the
farther corridor, and I could see from
the glimmer of light through an open
door that he had entered one of the
rooms. Now, all these rooms are unfurnished and unoccupied, so that his
expedition became more mysterious
than ever. The light shone steadily as
if he were standing motionless. I crept
down the passage as noiselessly as I
could and peeped round the corner of
the door.
Barrymore was crouching at the window with the candle held against the
glass. His profile was half turned to-
wards me, and hi3 face seemed to be
rigid with expectation as he stared out
into the blackne-s of the moor. For
some minutes he stood watching intently. Then he gave a deep groan and
with an impatient gesture he put out
the light. Instantly I made my way
back to my room, and very shortly
came the stealthy steps passing once
more upon their return journey. Long
afterwards when I had fallen into u
light sleep I heard a key turn some
where in a lock, but I could not tell
whence the sound came. What It. all
means I cannot -mess, but there if
some secret bt'siness going on In thih
house of glocm which sooner or later
we shall get to the bot'om of. I do not
trouble you with my theories, for you
asked me to fur"ish you only with
fncts. I have had a long talk with Sir
Henry this morning, and we have
made a plan of campaign founded upon
my observations of last night. I will
not sneak about it just now, but it
should ira'��e my next report Interesting reading.
Baskerville Hall, Oct. 15th.
My dear Holmes,���If I was compelled to leave you without much news
during the earl; days of my mission
you must acknowledge that I am making up for lost tine, and that events
are now crowding thick and fast upon
us. In my last report I ended upon my
lop note with Barrymore at the window, and now I have quite a 'budget al
eady which will, unless I <nm much
mistaken, considerably surprise you.
h'n^s have ta:;e:i a turn which 1
could not have anticipated, In some
���vays they have within the last forty-
night, hours become much clearer and
In some ways they have become more
complicated, But I will tell you all
and you shiill judge for yourself.
Before breakfast on the morning fol
lowing my adventure I went down thr
corridor  and   examined   the  room   In
vhich Barrymore  had  been    on    the
::!ght before.    The    western    window
through  which   he   had  stared   so  intently has,  I   noticed,  one  peculiarity
���bove all c'her windows In the house
���it commands the nearest outlook oil
'o the moor. There Is an opening be
ween  two  troea   which   enables  one
from this point of view to look right
down upon It, while from all the other
vi'idows it is only a distant glimpse
vhich can be obtained.    It   follows,
therefore, that Barrymore, since only
his window would serve his purpose,
list have been looking out for some-
hfngor somebody upon the moor. The
' *ht was very   'ark, so that I    can

gone out to keep some clandestine appointment. So I reasoned with mysrif
in the morning, and I tell you the
direction of my suspicions, however
much the result, may have shown that
they were unfounded.
But whatever the true explanation
of Barrymore's movements might he,
I felt that the responsibility of keeping
them to myself until I could explain
them was more than I could bear. I
had an Interview with the baronet In
his study after breakfast, and I told
him all that I had seen. He was less
surprised than I had expected.
"I knew that Barrymore walked
about nights, and I had a mind to
speak to him about it," said he. "Two
or three times I have heard his steps
in the passage, coming and going, just
about the hour you name."
"Perhaps then he pays a visit every
night to that particular window," I
"Perhaps he does. If so, we should
be able to shadow him, and see what
It Is that he is after. I wonder what
your friend Holmes would do, if he
were here."
"I believe that he would do exactly
what you now suggest," said I. "He
would follow Barrymore and see what
he did."
"Then we shall do it together."
"But surely he would hear us."
"The man is rather deaf, and in any
case we must, take our chance of that.
We'll sit up in my room to-night, and
Sir Henry suddenly drew Miss Stapieton
lv tiis side.
wait until he passes." Sir Henry rubbed his bauds with pleasure, and il
was evident that he hailed the ad
venture as a relief to his somewhat
quiet life upon the moor.
The baronet has been in communication with tho architect who prepared
the plans for Sir Charles, and with a
contractor from London, so that we
may expect great changes to begin
here soon. There have been decorators
and furnishers up from Plymouth, and
It is evident that, our friend lias large
ideas, and means to spare no pains ol
expense to restore the grandeur of his
family. When the nonce is renovated
and refurnished, all that ho will need
will bo a wife to make it complete. Bp
tween ourselves there are pretty clear
signs that this will not be wanting it
the lady is willing, for I have seldom
seen a man more infatuated with a
woman than he is with our beautiful
neighbor, Miss Stapieton. And yet the
course of true love dees not run quite
as smoothly as one would under the
circumstances expect. To-day, for example, its surface was broken by a
very unexpected ripple, which has
caused our friend considerable perplexity and annoyance.
After the conversation which I have
quoted about Barrymore Sir Henry put
on his hat and prepared to go out. As
a matter of course I did the same.
"What, are you coming, Watson?"
he asked looking at me in a curious
"That depends on whether you are
going on the moor," said I.
"Yes, I am."
"Well, you know what my instructions are. I am sorry to intrude, but
you heard how earnestly Holmes Insisted that. I should not leave you, and
especially that you should not go alone
upon the moor."
Sir Henry put his hand upon my
shoulder, with a pleasant smile.
"My dear fellow," said he, "Holmes.

Recollections   of   Napoleon's
Retreat from Moscow by an
officer who was in " The Grand
(In 1812 Sweden and Russia refused to carry out Napoleon's
famous "Berlin Decree," in consequence of which he patched up
a treaty of peace with England
and invaded Russia with a large
array. On i each ing Moscow, the
Governor, Rostopchin, burnt it
to the ground, and consequently
Napoleon, finding neither food
nor shelter for his men, in midwinter was obliged to retreat,
and lost by cold and starvation
,the greater part of his troops.)
"I would not like to depreciate
or exaggerate by improbable
stories this great historical tragedy, but will faithfully relate the
frightful distress which was experienced even by those in the
highest ranks during these last
days of the retreat.
' 'The Emperor might often be
saen tramping through the deep
snow supported by a stick, walking half doubled up with a bitterly cold north wind full in his
face. Once he passed the night
���in a wooden shed in his carriage
near which a small number of
superior and grenadier officers
took turns in mounting guard.
Random shots from flying (Russian) batteries crossed the plain
and grazed at times the headquarters whose fires were covered up with ashes in the night
time, so that they should not
prove a target to the enemy.
When the long-wished-for daylight at length returned, the Emperor lowered his. carriage window, and, looking out on the
snow-covered plain strewn with
dead men and horses, called his
aide-de-camp, Mr. Marbonie,
and said to him in a feeble voice,
'What a terrible night, my dear
general! It has been no worse
for the sentinels than for myself
who have passed it in meditation.
See that the guards are relieved,
and take this to revive you, for
courage alone cannot keep you
warm when the thermometer is
twenty-eight degrees below zero.'
At the same time he poured into
a large cup a boiling mixture of
coffee and chocolate from a jar
heated by spirits of wine which
was placed in his carriage.
' 'The aide-de-camp respectfully
received what the Emperor offered him, and having made a
few paces towards the back of
the carriage, he almost stumbled
over a soldier of the Guard laid
on a hillock of beaten snow, who
was grasping his musket in his
convulsive hands and wearing on
his contracted features the indescribable expression of vanquished suffering.
"The officer bent over him
saying, 'Well, my good man, we
have had a bad night, but daylight has come at last. Get up.'
The soldier made a desperate effort to rise, but seemed overcome
by numbness. 'Come, we must
help each other a little,' said Mr.
Marbonie, presenting to him the
still warm beverage, 'take this;
we have more of it at head-quarters.' The soldier hesitated with
a kind of respectful pride, put
his hand to his bear-skin cap,
then took the cup and, having
emptied it at a single gulp, he
again tried to get up by placing
the butt end of his gun in the
deep snow; and, having this time
succeeded in rising, he appeared
what he really was,--one of the
finest grenadiers of the old imperial guard.
" 'Ahi general.' said he, 'how
hunger and cold demoralize men
of spirit! Surely 1 ought nut to
have taken that from you as you
need it yourself. I must beg your
pardon, for I am quite ashamed
of myself now that I feel warm.'
"The general then said to the
soldier who returned the golden
goblet from which he had drunk:
'No, no, my good fellow, keep
this for the expenses of the journey; the outside as well as what
it contained belongs to you,  and
Any person or persons removing Timber or Wood of any kind from the property
of this Company without permission In writing, signed by the Managing Director
will be prosecuted.
ern Okanagan Land Go.,
may prove useful to you on
reaching Poland which we shall
shortly enter.' But the soldier,
falling back a step and again
making the military, salute, said;
'Ah! as to that, God forbid, general, that 1 should take it, for I
have never accepted anything
but my pay, and my rations when
Inhere \yere.any.| And he placed
the cup on the snowy mound he
had just left. As, however, the
general excused himself for not
having any thing etae to offer, the
soldier took up the cup and,
breaking a piece off the golden
rim with his stout finger and
thumb, 'I will keep,' said he,
'this Napoleon (coin) as a souvenir of this awful retreat and of
the frightful night just past.' ���
