THANKSGIVING DAY.
Turkey   Shoot,   Races,   Football
Match and Successful
Concert.
Thanksgiving   Day   was   this
] year devoted to sport and entertainment by the citizens of Pen-
, ticton, the local Turf Club having
i in hand the events of the day
with the exception of the football match.
TURKEY SHOOT.
The turkey shoot took place in
i the forenoon and resulted in
twenty-one turkeys being won.
the members of the Rifle Association capturing the greater
number. The total proceeds of
the shoot amounted to ninety
dollars, about fifteen of which
was over expenses.
THE RACES.
There was a very good attendance at the races in the afternoon, but the proceeds fell considerably short of meeting the
expenses for purses, etc. In
some of the races the entries
were not numerous, but the contests Droved quite exciting. The
races were :
Mile Dash-1st, "Harry B. S.,"
owner, J. Innis; 2nd, "Topsy,"
owner, Chas. Shuttleworth.
Boys' Pony Race���1st, "Sunbeam," J. Brent; 2nd, "Silver-
tip," J. Were.
Half Mile-1st, "Daniel," N.
Bertise; 2nd, "Black Beauty,"
H. Richter.
Homecrest Race���1st, "Casey"
H. Richter; 2nd, "Toddy," Wm.
Kruger.
Turf Club Race, i mile���1st,
"Sunny Jim," F. Brent; 2nd,
"Johnnie," Alex.
FOOTBALL.
The football game between
Penticton and Peachland was
called at 2:30 p. m. During the
first half the Peachland forwards, having a strong breeze in
their favor, kept the ball at the
Penticton end most of the time
and succeeded in scoring two
goals, while Penticton failed to
score at all.
In the second half the Pentic-
tjn forwards woke up a bit and
gave the Peachland defence a
little more work. Foster succeeded in scoring about fifteen
minutes after half time by a
strong shot from the wing, and
Bell got in a nice goal about half
a minute from the finish. Peachland scored two more goals in
the second half, thus winning
the game by a score of 4-2. If
the Penticton boys would get out
and practice they would, no
doubt, do better work.
THE CONCERT.
The concert which took place
in the evening was, from the
standpoint of attendance, the
greatest success of the kind ever
I taking place in Penticton. As
regards the programme it was
| equal to anything previously held
and contained a number of surprises as regards local talent,
several of the items bringing
down the house. The total proceeds amounted to $118. W. J.
Clement performed the duties of
stage manager, and the following
was the programme, nearly every
item of which was encored.

of the excellent piano solo played
by Miss Rowe.

CONSERVATIVE VICTORY.
Yale-Cariboo and  Kootenay go
Strongly Against Government.
What was one of the most signal victories ever taking place in
Canada, under similar circumstances, was that on Thursday
when Martin Burrell, the Conservative candidate in Yale-Cariboo, defeated Duncan Ross, the
Liberal representative for the
past four years, and A. S. Good-
eve defeated Smith -Curtis, the
; Liberal candidate in Kootenay.
No greater protest could have
been registered, against the attl-
! tude of the Dominion government as regards better terms for
B. C, the Oriental question,
Dominion interference in provincial legislation, or deferred elections. The Dominion government, and eastern Canada in
general, will probably sit up and
take notice after this.
So far as yet heard, the vote
in Yale-Cariboo stands 2607 for
Burrell against 1845 for Ross, or
a majority of 762, Chas. Bunting,
the Socialist polling 394 votes.
In the Kootenay the Socialist
candidate polled 1333, Goodeve
3023, and Curtis 2114, giving
Goodeve SOD majority.
Out of 163 votes polled in Penticton 103 were for Burrell, 52
for Ross and 3 for Bunting.
Duncan Ross polled twelve
votes less, in his own town,
Greenwood, than Martin Burrell.

Additional Locals
Be sure and  visit the zoo in
Steward's Hall on Tuesday.
The local tennis club intend
giving a ball on Friday, Dec. 11.
On Tuesday evening a citizens'
meeting was held, having been
called by A. J. Alcock to discuss
the question of fruit marketing.
Mr. Alcock recently returned
from a trip to the Northwest
where he held a number of
meetings with a view to opening
a market for Okanagan produce.
Mr. Alcock proposes to handle
the fruit of the valley through
agents at various points, and to
cut out the wholesale men whom
he maintains are getting an undue profit on the fruit which
they handle. He believes by
getting- the producer and consumer in direct contact that
much better prices may be obtained and a market assured.
The meeting was adjourned to
some future date.

"Of    course."    added    Uavld    ltoml.
"following the law would strengthen
thr case."
"Of course."
The section boss adjusted his
crutches and stood up. "Tou-all seem
,1' he settlin' It 'thout any o' my lip."
lie said nnd laughed mor kingly.
"We have your interests at heart."
replied the storekeeper.
Lancaster errand his teeth. Now
that all danger was pi:��t be felt no
gratitude for the routing of Matthews
and the strategy at the Trooper's Delight. He could only feel that his authority in his own home was throat-
�� ned. He turned his back.
. i/ounshury glanced at the girls. They
were watching their father appeal-
(irigiy.
I  "I should say." went on Lounsbury
"that  we  have  (no  interests  of  you?'
i.'aughten at heart." nis band reached
lor the latch.
"Mr. Lounsbury!" Dallas made a
ewlft step toward him.
Now the section boss came about.
Lounsbury was reminded of the day
on the plowed strip, for he saw that
Lancaster was all a-tremble and panting as If spent with a hard run. "M"
gal!" he cried sternly.
Dallas stepped back and touched her
father's arm. And her remonstrance
was the remo��idtr��Dce of that other
day. "Xo, nn dad." she cautioned In
a low voice; "no. no."
Lancaster's breast heaved. He swallowed with an effort and scowled from
one to another of the four.
David Bond came forward, addressing Lounsbury. "Will you tell me
your name?" he asked. "I want to
remember yon. You are not a soldier.
Do you belong at Clark's"���
"Did y' size him up fer a cow
punch?" broke in Lancaster. "Hub!
Waal. Ah never did."
Lounsbury's   face  dyed  to  a  deep
scarlet.   "No?" he said.   "And why?"
Again the section boss gave a shrill,
mocking   laugh.     "Too   fat   an'   too
mouthy," he answered.
For an Instant Lounsbury wavered.
In that Instant the deep scarlet faded,
his eyes opened, his nostrils spread.
"Pa! Pa!" It was Marylyn, half
weeping.
Lounsbury's cool voice cleared the
air. "I'm a Bismarck man," he said
to the evangelist. "I've got a store
there. My name is John Lounsbury."
He held out his hand to Dallas.
She advanced again and took it. "Oh,
thank you. thank you," she breathed.
"'Blsmatck man,'" It was Lancaster once more. "Waal, w'y the devil
don' y' stay thar?"
Lounsbury took no notice of bim.
"I'll he hooting it." be said to Dallas.
"But If I cau do anything, you understand." and went out.
David Bond's keen eyes studied the
elder girl. He expected an outburst
of anger and blame. He was surprised when, without speaking, she
brought the benches to the fire nnd set
about clearing the table. Lancaster
seated himself and sucked moodily at
his pipe. Marylyn flitted behind hlin
to disappear through the swinging
blankets. The evangelist walked up
and down.
It was not long before tbe silence
told on the section boss and forced him
to talk. "Ef you-all got auytbin' t'
say," be snarled presently, "y' might
as well spit it out."
No one answered.
"Ah got jes' this f say," be continued: "Ah ain't goin' f hev no lubber
o' a storekeeper slaverin' aroun' my
gals!"
Again no one answered, but David
Bond as he watched Dallas questioning!}' determined to be silent no longer.
He paused iu his walk. "My friend,"
he said solemnly, "you talk like a madman.    For shame!"
Dallas stood stock still, her eyes
warning him.    But It was too late.
Her father snickered, drew ou his
pipe once or twice and then grinned up
nt the evangelist, "it's gittln' light
outdoors," be said significantly. "Ah
reckon y' could cross th' river."
And so David Bond and the white
horse went the way of Louusbury.
Nearly an hour passed before the
section boss addressed Dallas. "Waal,
waal. waal?"
She was wrapping up to do the morning chores. ".lust ns well, I guess,
dad," she said wearily. "The meal
and bacon's pretty low. I've beeu
cooking out of the seed sacks lately."
"Th" meal an' bacon's got f las'," be
answered. "Use th' seed ef y' want t'.
un' don' give thet Injun so much. We
shan't ast tick o' no lallygaggln', do-a-
grapevlne twist dandy."
Dallas sighed, found Marylyn to kiss
ber and gratefully breasted the chill air
beyond the door.
Ills dismissal from tlie shack brought
no hardship upon David Bond. lie
found an old acquaintance in Colonel
Cummings, who joyfully greeted him
as interpreter In the absence of Matthews. He found familiar faces among
the hostages, whose sullen reserve It)
his presence he laid to their Imprison-
���/tent. At barracks the enlisted men
chaffed hhu mlscliievnndv. christened
him "Methuselah" and installed him
us "official doom sealer" of the post.
But when he passed tbem by to give
every hour of his days and nights lo
young .lamieson-young .lamieson. battling with all his might against collapse���the men ceased chaffing and lis-
I tenon to li I til won rexjieet. \ i-:mik '"I
re.g'ou was on.- tiling, a man with o.,e
I eye on tlie Bible ami his sleeves rolled
iqi for hard dntv was another. 'Ihe
troopers cared lit11*��� lor sermonizing,
hut they honored service. Then, it
was .lamieson for whom the evangelist
' was caring. And .lamieson held the
very heartstrings of the garrison.
As for Lounsbury, Branuon entertained him no lea* gladly. His was the
rare good humor 11��� :it enlivens every
occasion. IU' practiced at target shooting  Willi  the  enlisted   men:  he played
billiards with ihe officers; he dined,
made up sleigh rides, lent himself to
theatricals, furnished n fourth at cards
1 and at tlie frequent dances led out
homely and pretty alike.
To David Bond it seemed as If the
storekeeper were indifferent to his own
i dismissal from the shad; But one
morning    the   evangelist    accidentally
i cam;- upon the younger man.    lie was
watching    the    bend    through   a    tele-
scope, and  his  face  was anxious and
troubled,
"Lflnenr*er   hasn't    started    for   the
. I mil office again." he said.    Then, aft-
��� er a moment's silence. "I've Just about
decided logo Bismarck way myself today.    When you ran.  will you let me
I 'now how they are over there?"
"Chiirlt'S   Will    keep   me   posted."   nn-
��� were I   the   evangelist,   "and   I   shall
��� mi I 'on nut news by the it nt 11 sielgh."
" i' ��������� k   ��� hi." sill   I HiiiHlinry  situ
piv. "Goodby." And at the noon mean
he wus missing.
Al the shack the days were numbered slowly for all their scant hours of
'Iglit. Sleep consumed most of the
lime. The rest was taken by the meals,
the chores and the effort of keeping
warm. The line of calico covered books
helped to vnry the monotony. So did
the visits of Squaw Charley. But these
were becoming more brief now. Not
that Lancaster made them unpleasant
-Charley was necessary to hlm-but
that the Indian was always In a fpver
to be gone. Since the council his eyes
were less downcast, bis face was less
stolid.
One day brought a totally unexpected visitor, whom Lancaster recognized
with some misgivings as the United
States land agent at Bismarck. The
section boss was soon reassured, however. The agent said that, having business near Brannon and remembering
that Lancaster wished to file au entry
on the bend when the first claimant's
six months were up. he had come by.
In the case of a man who wns hurt, he
said, the lnw allowed such a course.
The section boss, thus saved the arduous trip, signed tbe necessary papers
with a jubilant mark.
Then came old Michael for a time or
two. It seemed at first as if be were
to be a favorite. He could adapt himself with all the art of his race. And
before Lancaster he was Intensely
southern In his views, whlppiug the
north In many a broguey strife. Until
-it befell through a slip of the tongue
���a slip that sent him packing off. for
he boasted how in '02 his freckled
hands had helped In piloting the Fed-
?rals to Island No. 10!
It was nn outcome that gave Dallas
little concern. Marylyn was ber worry. The younger girl wns listless, pale
nnd moody. Now and then Dallas believed she saw a look of actual suffering In her eyes. Once, awakening In
the night, she heard her sob.
Marylyn was unhappy, and the
thought made the elder girl desperate.
This led her to a plan: Lounsbury must
be nsked to forgive their father and
come again���must be told of Marylyn's
confession.
Soon "fterward a second worry presented itself, one fully as serious. The
provisions were dwindling, the seed
sacks shrinking fast, nnd, estranged
from Lounsbury. they had nowhere to
ask crpdlt but at the fort.
When Dallas spoke of It to her father, he chuckled. "Waal, we got Simon, ain't we?" he said.
That same night Marylyn put down
her fork and stared across the table at
her sister. "Why. Dallas, you don't
eat!" she complained.
Dallas laughed. "I don't work, honey." she answered.
The question of fuel entered neit
aud became a grave one. So far the
weather had been fairly mild for the
place and the season. Now It took a
more rigorous turn. The bitter cold
was Intensified by a stiff wind. Snow
began to fall, nnd the wind, growing,
drove the flakes level, so that they cut
thp face like filings of steel. Charley's
trips became uncertain, then Impossi-1
hie. The work of getting out hay for
the stock was a desperate tax. It was
so difficult that Dallas dared not spure
a straw for the fireplace, and Beu and
Betty's manger had to he drawn upon
for wood. When this source of supply
failed, the benches were sacrificed one
by one. the cupboard was torn down,
and the hunk and part of the table
were split Into klndliug.
The family slept shoulder to shoulder before the hearth, with the brave
colored blankets of the partition for
extra covering. Lancaster and the
younger girl stayed in bed all of the
twenty-four hours. Dallas got up only
long enough to tend the animals and
prepare food. But a day came when
she could not make her way to the
lean-to nnd when the warped door
could not be opened in the teeth of the
raging storm. Toward noon she
cooked some food, however. The seed'
sacks were empty. There wns no rice
and no flour. While tlie blizzard
howled without and Simon and the
mules called pitifully for their fodder
and drink, she broke up what was left
of the table. Over Its blaze the last
Rmlteh of bacon went to savor tho
last pint of beans.
After the meal Dallas read aloud.
Lying down, she held her book In ono
hand until her fingers were blue with
cold, then changed to the other. Father nnd sister drowsed, and she put
Ihe story aside to study over the predicament. In which site felt herself at
fault.   Counting on blizzards, hut know-
1
tng notning or their miration, sue nan
determined t<> say little about their
needs until those needs pressed, wbeu.
she knew, her father would see their
extremity. '1 he extremity had come. I
Vet. willing or unwilling. Lancaster]
was cut off from seeking help.
That day closed lu fearful cold.   The
wind   was   becoming   a   furious   gale.
Sturdily   the   log   house   withstood   it.
Only the roof seemed threatened.   With !
each great blast it lifted a little, as if
on   the   point  of   whirling  away,   but j
when darkness came even the roof set- j
tied Into quiet, for the drifts that bad
been piling iqi gradually  to the north '
and west of the shack, sealing the win- j
(lows and  the door,  had  risen  to the
grassy eaves and overflowed them and
so weighted the thatch.
Next morning long before Marylyn
nnd her father wakened Dallas roused.
The room was In dusk, and its air was
SO cold tbat It seemed fairly to singe
the skin. She could not read. Pres- j
pntly Marylyn turned. The elder girl
hastened to soothe her. Then their
father yawned.    Dallas feigned sleep.
But the evil moment could not be
put off. Lancaster propped himself on
a ii elbow and called to her. He was
hungry.
Very quietly Dallas told him that
there wns no food.
He grunted, nrose and lighted tne
lantern. "Yon dlsb thet snow on th'
floor," he commanded. "We'll need It
fer drink."
"What 're you going to do?" she asked, hastening to obey. Her voice was
lowered apprehensively.
lie was wrapping some clothes over
his shoes. "Butcher Simon," he said
curtly.
Her face became a white spot In tho
gloom.
"Critter 'II be tough, llke's not," went
on her father, "but y' c'n poun' th'
ment."
After a long wait she spoke. "You
can't reach him," she declared, half
triumphantly.
"Yas, Ah c'n," he answered. "Ah c'n
chop through with th' hatchet." He
was between the fireplace and a corner, feeling over the logs with his
hands.
She rnn to him. "Oh, how can you
think of It?" she demanded huskily.
"Simon's so friendly aud���came to us
for a borne. How can you kill him!
Maybe you could eat bim, but I
couldn't.   It 'd just choke me!"
"Oh, ain't we ���of!" sneered her father. He was fumbling about near the
bunk, as if hunting something. "Mebbe
y' 'd like Ah should kill a mule! Ha.
ba! No mule meat fer me. Ah'll give
thet bull a tunk 'tween th' eyes, an'
we'll hev steak."
She stood In the dim light, one arm
crooked up to cover her face. Presently Marylyn moaned. Then Dallas lowered her arm and looked down at her
sister. "One of the mules would be
easier," she said bitterly. But. remembering the brown eyes of the team and
the long, gray whiskered noses, she
covered her face again.
"Ah don' keer w'at y' say," declared
her father. "We'll hev ateak." He selected a log and began to hack at It.
Shuddering, she sank to her knees,
one hand reached out to touch Mary-'
lyn. "Maybe Charley Ml come, honey."
she whispered hopefully. "Maybe,
maybe!"
And now It seemed ns If she heard
something outside. She crept to the
door. Around the latch was a little
space. She put ber enr to It. nnd the
Icy air blew against her cheek. There
It was again! The shriek of the gale.
She went back to the bed.
Hack, hack, hack! Then muttered
curses. And again the sound of chopping.
When she could bear it no longer she
got up and stumbled over to her father. "Dad." she said, "If I break up
the mantel and fix something will you
stop?"
He sat back on his feet, puffing crossly. "Light a fire." he said. "Use these
chips. Ah'll res'." He threw down the
hatchet and crawled under the blankets. He wa# glad of the Interruption,
for the duty ahead was assuming an
ugly guise.
Dallas had filled the coffee pall with

lit them and pried up the wide board
of tho mantel. This she split with the
hatchet.
"What are you going to make?"
asked Marylyn from the bed.
"Pepper tea, honey. It'll warm you
up."
"Oh, I'm so glad. Ma mnde some

Pepper tea It was. When the snow-
had melted and the water was boiling
hot Dallas added pepper and salt.
Then she spread a cloth and turned
the wheat and corn sacks out upon It.
She got a handful of flour. With this
she thickened the water. Three cups
were sitting upon the floor. She took

"Well, what do you think I'm doing'.'"

Marylyn   too.     Then   Dallas   got   up j
cautiously and brewed a cup of peppered   water   for   herself.     The   hot |
draft relieved the pangs of her hunger.
She lay down again.
Hours later she was awakened by
hearing faint squeals directly overhead. Hastily she lit the lantern and
took down the Sharps, then stepped
directly under the sounds and poked
tho rifle's muzzle Into the hay of the
roof. Above, storm driven und crowding one another ngalnst the stones of
the chimney, were some pigs!
Iu her eagerness she trembled so
violently that she became unsteady on
her feet   it lost her the opportunity of

vulnerable'. When Marylyn turned from
the tea that now partially eased her
hunger and began n demand for food,
Simon would die.
It came sooner thon the section boss
expected. . His lethargic sleep was
broken by Dallas shaking him. As he
cpeiied his eyes she thrust the hatchet
into his hands.
"Dad," sho said hurriedly, "get up.
You got to do It���for Marylyn���for
Marylyn."
To bim it was a real victory. lie
wrenched a quid from his tobacco
slab, grasped the hatchet handle and
arose. Dallas had lighted the lantern
once more. Now she pinned one of
the smaller blankets over his shoulders.
When he put on his lint nnd knelt before fhe chopped out place in tlie east j
wall she wrapped a second blanket i
about his feet and legs.
"f!o 'long, go 'long," he snld, not
unkindly. "Keep you'solf warm."
Then the hack, hack. hack, began

She did not watch him. but donned
the long cloak over her jersey, kissed
Marylyn and paced up and down fhe

blow of the hatchet.
"Poor Simon! Door Simon!" she
whispered to herself. The bull was
lowing again.
At Inst the sound of the hatchet he-
enme unbearable, She gave a quick
glance around the room, then, crossing
to her fnther. pulled at his arm. "Tf
yon kill Simon, there's no wood to do

Ho twisted from under her hand and
scowled up. "Shucks!" he answered.
"Here's chips 'nough fer a fire." And
swung Ihe halcliet with fresh znnl.
She lingered a moment, smiling grimly. It was only a play for time. She
knew very well that there would bo

stall.
Lancaster was making fast progress.
The log upon which he worked was
dry from Ihe heat of the hearth. It
splintered like weathered pine. A section of It was seen cut away so far

drove It In. It rolled to the noses of
the mules. Lancaster thrust his head
through the nolo.

They watched him. then the door, then

The section boss drew hack nervously. "Simon's aclin' funny." he said.

corner farthest from him. crowded
against the logs. Her arms were
raised. Her head rested between them.
Lancaster grunted disgustedly and
foil to chopping again. The opening
lu the wall was not quite wide enough
up and down for his body. He enlarged It by cutting away at the lower
side. Finally, satisfied with its size, ho
unpinned die shoulder blanket, freed
his feet and crawled through.
And now Dallas looked around, fastening her eyes upon the dark hole beyond the hearth. Beside it the lantern burned with n sickly fume. "It's

ears buried In tlie bedclothes.
Within the lean-to a curious parley
was being held. Lancaster was standing, hatchet in hand, at the bar of
Simon's pen. Behind him was the stable door; before him, just out of reach,
the bull. Simon was not pawing now.
His fore feet were opened wide: bis
nose touched the ground between
them. He was alternately mooing nnd
blowing, and his angry eyes were
fixed not on the section boss, but on
the bottom of the door.
"Simon. Simon." said Lancaster In a
wheedling tone.   He could scarcely see

wns snowed shut.    Tbe hull mnde no

the single bar aside and hopped  forward a step or two, his gaze fixed on
the star between those glowing eyes.
Still the bull did not move.
"So, Simon," purred the section boss.
He   gave   another   hop   forward   and
raised the hatchet.    "So, Simon; nice
