Main  Street  Grocery  Burned.
About 7:30 on Wednesday evening a fire broke out in E. S.
Lake's photographic studio above
his grocery store in the Lee
Block. The whole inside of the
upper flat was aflame before the
fire was discovered and all eiforts
at extinguishing it proved of no
avail.
The sounding of the gong soon
brought a large crowd of willing
workers, and also a large crowd
of those not so willing. Attention was turned to saving the
stock of groceries and to removing the furniture from Mr. and
Mrs. Malcom Campbell's home
which adjoined the Lee Block.
Both buildings were completely
destroyed. Nothing was saved
from the photographic studio
and only part of the grocery
stock was got out.
Water being close at hand, the
bucket brigade was enabled to do
very effective work, and to its
efforts are undoubtedly due the
fact that the Penticton Hardware
as well as the Carless and Rathvon building still stand. As it
was the intense heat totally
wrecked the glass front of the
latter building.
The loss is partly covered by
insurance.
Fire protection will be the
most serious problem the newly
elected council will have to face.

evening, portend well for the
coining year's sessions of the

everyone got down to business

One of the most enjoyable
social dances held in Penticton
for some time took place on Wednesday night in the Oddfellows'
Hall. About twenty-five couples
were present and dancing began
at about 8 o'clock, continuing until 3:30 next morning. Refreshments were supplied by the ladies, and the music was furnished
by Messrs. Weeks, Denniston
and Phelps. To Messrs. Johnston and Bassettc is largely duo
the success of the event.

To the Electors of the Municipality of Penticton.
Being a candidate for Councillor, I place before you what I
consider will be of vital importance to the future welfare of
Penticton. All of which, if I am
elected, will have my support,
consistent with the means available.
1st. Water works system.
This should be dealt with in a
broad - minded way, not with
false economy, but with a view
to laying a foundation for the
future.
2nd. Eradication of inflammable matter between the public
streets. I would support a bylaw making it compulsory to
property holders between the
lakefront and Fairview Avenue,
and between Ellis and Martin
Streets, withjn a reasonable time
after given notice, to cut all
underbrush-inflammable matter
���and burn it. Alleyways to be
cleaned up by the Municipality.
This, in my opinion, is as important as a good water system. It
would not only increase the value
of the property but improve the
appearance of the streets and be
a good preventative from fire.
This may seem aggressive, but,
in my opinion, it is to our mutual
interests.
3rd. Light and electric power.
This is of most vital importance.
While the initial cost will be
heavy, it will be more so a few
years hence. Therefore, it will
require careful consideration, not
only by the Council, but by the
ratepayers when placed before
them. In my opinion, steps
should be taken to secure, by
purchase or otherwise, a water
power of sufficient strength,
within a reasonable distance, to
not only furnish light but also to
furnish power for pumping stations, and manufactures both
public and private. I see no
reason why a solid foundation
should not be laid for these public necessities.
4th. Street improvements. A
petition, signed by a majority of
the ratepayers on any porticular
street or avenue, asking for improvements, should have careful
consideration, and they should
be assessed for same in the usual
way.
5th. The acquisition of recreation grounds and foreshore
rights. These are also some of
the important questions that will
come before the Council, and
should be strongly supported.
Gth. Cemetery location. This
question is in a disgraceful condition and should be dealt with
by the Council, without fear or
favor, by buying a couple of
acres. They could be cut up in
lots and sold to those who wish
to buy, thereby reducing the cost
to the Municipality to a minimum.
7th. I believe in the principle
of taxation upon land values
only, and will advocate the adoption of the system in the making
of future municipal assessments.
Trusting that my views may
meet with your approval,  your
vote and influence are respectfully solicited on January 25th.
I remain,
.  Yours sincerely,
L. C. Barnes.

The regular meeting of the Literary Society was held on Thursday evening with an unusually

Miller, Tupper and Syer on the
negative. After the debate which
was considerably below the standard usually reached in our society, the judges gave a unanimous
decision in favor of the negative,
which decision was backed up by
the vote of the audience. Mr,
Mutch was the critic of the evening.

of imposing unfair burdens on

Brannon was tpilet to the point of

daily dress parade held ceremoniously.
The ���trumpet blew its unvarying round
of commands. There was no hunting

an hour. Then Ihe sicninet'. her pilot

CHAPTER. XXXI11.
HIE dark of tbe moon was come.
All   that   day   the   sun   had
baked,  and   the  steady  south
blow  had  been  like the draft
of an oven.     As evening came, brush-
ng a  glory  of  red  from  the  sky.  tlie
wind quickened instead of lulling and
fetched  up clouds that  rested on  the
ridge tops and roofed the wide valley
| Through these not a star showed.    But
now nnd then, for an Instant, the post
sprang Into sight out of the blackness
to ihe weird play uf the heat lightning.
In   the   stockade   there   was   perfect
UUiet���a   quiet   tense   with  excitement.
Secrecy    forbade    any    strong    heart
pongs   and   dances.     Caution   advised
agaiust   mosquito   fires,   and   suspense
i tiid away wilh drumming, shrill laugh-
I ter and  feast  shout.    The  aged   men,
j Ihe women and the children kept close
j within  their lodges,  where they  wills
| pored and  nodded,  nose to nose.    The
I warriors    stayed    outside,    preserving
their calm   with  kfcinlklnteU.    In  the
| dark the open bowls of their scattered
pipes were so many ruddy glowworms.
From the pitchy shelter of tlie shingle roof Squaw Charley looked out.   lie
i.at on   his   heels,  about   him   the   few
mangy dogs  that   had   uot  found   the
dinner pot.   One of these stirred.   Half
rising he gave It a kick, just as one of
lis  brothers  might  have  dime     Then
he   squatted   again    and   through   the
ragged strands of his bang his bin oh
e.'.es sparkled eagerly, for of late every   warrior's   lodge   had  seen   secret
Hesh painting.   Under every warrior's
blanket were hidden gaudy tracings of
vermilion,   scarlet,   orange   and   blue,
and wns he not painted too?
He had sought iu nn ash pile for
coals, found a beef bone and snapped
it for marrow, next takeu from bis
worn pouch a lump of red earth. He
had rubbed the coals to powder in a
square of rag. after which he had
mixed the powder and the grease to
make a paste. Then he had pulled oil
his mourning blanket and his squaw's
shirt and bared his body to the waist.
Vermilion, orange, scarlet and blue���
these colors had been laid hi stripes,
circles and figures upon the braves,
They were colors that he, an outcast,
might not use, but there was one poor
privilege In Mesh painting lhat even ha
could claim. Kneeling again iu clout
nnd squaw's skirt he had smeared tlie
black and red in rude signs upon his
chest. The braves, his brothers, had
painted themselves for battle, but he,
the pariah, had painted himself in the
colors of death.
Suddenly he forsook the roof for tho
shadow   of   the   lug   wall.    There   he
! waited.    Two   warriors   hnd   left   tlie
| lodge of Brown Mink and were cross-
j lug   Ihe   pen.     lie   knew   them.     The
shorter was Canada John, the eldest of
Ihe four condemned.   The other was a
Sioux who had been captured lhat day
and   cast   into   prison   at   sunset.    He
j  was a giant  iu stature,  wore full  war
i palut nnd dress and a licit that testified
his valor, lor it bung thick with scalps,
some  Jetty   and  coarse,   taken   from
heads of bis owu kind, some brown or
fair, witli the softness that belongs to
the hair of while women and children.
The   Iwu   were   talking   low   together.
Presently, as they strolled near, the
outcast beard tbe deep murmur of their
voices, then their words. He leaned
Inward tbem, all ears.
"How many sleeps before the dove
I calls'/" it was the bass of the strau-
| gor.
"Perhaps only another," answered
Canada John.
There was u great laugh, like the cry
of a full fed loon. "Surely Big Ox
stays not long! But how can my friends
be sure that the Double Tongue will
have horses ready'.'"
"He claims a reward."
"Ho, ho!   And what';"
Canada John lull toil close to Squaw
j Charley, '"there, is a cotton wood lodge
beyond tlie river." he said. "It should
| belong to the Double Tongue. He is
I kepi out. Au old paleface and his two
I daughters seized it in the moon of wild
cherries, and they would not go."
"An old man. yon say V"
"But lie hunts the white buffalo.
Only the daughters nre there."
"A.re they young?"
"Young aud sleek. One Is called the
Plow VVouian. She Is tall, and she
watches like the antelope. The youo-
ger has hair like the grass when it is
withered."
"They live alone?"
"The Squaw guards"���
"V.'uil!"
"And tbe Man Who Buys Skins.
May he lie struck by Ihe zigzag lire!"
"Who is tn have the women?'
Canada John scratched his nose.
"'1 he medicine giver says. 'He that
first reaches them.' "
Big Ox shook his head In doubt
"The swiftest may yet fail to keep."
"Should any pursue, the women will
lie killed The soldiers will think
them bit by rattlesnakes."
Again Big Ox burst forth with laughter.
"Sh:"
A hammer clicked from the stocknde
top.   A sentry began to bawl angrily.
"<!it. you pup eaters," tic declared
and slanted his gun to them. Casting
dignity aside, they ducked into the
nearest lodge.
Squaw Charley dragged himself back
to the shingle roof. There he fell
prone, resting liis forehead against the
libs <if a dog. The strength was gone
from Ids body, tbe light from his eyes.
The wind of that other's nostrils bail
blasted him. He was like the scattering ash heaps of tbe evening smudges
where the last hit of fuel was crumbled and the last red coal was dead.
I.nng he stayed upon his face. When
tbe first numbness was past and his
brain was rallying slowly a very
scourge of sorrow visited him���sorrow
for the fate of the shack, where he bad
warmed himself so often, relieved his
hunger and known u kindly smile.
With sorrow came remorse. He had
not done Ills part for the little home.
He had not guarded ns he ought. And
he had helped by bringing rattlesnakes
-which he had been told were to be
used for medicine��� In tbe plot for Its
destruction When sorrow and remorse had their turn a stronger passion gnawed and racked hlin. It was
the yearning for reinstatement.
Dwelling upon this, he became two
Indians, and one of him opposed the
other. They traveled separate trails
���trails that bent different ways. Ilka
the horns of a buffalo The trail to the
right was a warpath It led bim behind bis brothers, through the hole lu
the stocknde. For awhile he loitered,
loath to share In the work ou the
bend Afterward he joined them.
They were free and crazy with their
freedom He matched his strength
with theirs, dared where they faltered,
won���won���
But there was no hope for the Plow
Woman I
He was back ra the other trail, and
it led to the gallery where Oliver's
hammock swung The outcast made
swift motions with Ills bunds. He
was hustled along with the guard.
The sliding panel opened. The tent
flaps of Brown Mink's lodge were lifted ne wns caught in a mad onrush.
He was howled at. spat upon. Klnal-
ly. a bruised, exiled traitor, more de-
I'plsed. if possible, than before, be
tied skulking away.
And here was no hope for his bono!
Tie was back at the parting of tlie
trails, one mnn again, helpless before
the knowledge that safety for the
shack meant the wiping out forever
of his dream ot becoming a  brave.
of a sudden be remembered David
Bond He got feebly lo his knees,
covering his lace from the dogs The
evangelist bad laid a charge upon
llilll-no matter what came, lie was tn
think tirst of the shack. He nail accepted il hefore he knew it would
clash with Ills own purpose. Was he
held io tlie promise now? David Bond
was dead If he were not obeyed, he
could never come back to punish.
He found himself upon his feet, listening. Across tlie stockade he saw
tbe glowworms nf tbe scattered pipes
dancing in the dark But a moment
later, when Hashes lit up the huge pen.
the hostages were sitting as liefore,
their faces lowered moodily.
Still he listened And il came again,
from the direction of the river-the
long, snd cooing call of a dove.

dove a figure left the lodge

was pushed aside a little and a lantern
was held up
"Hey. ('hurley:" said a friendly
voice. A white face peered Into 11 red
one. noting the uneven bang and the
handkerchief lied over the head like
a squaw's.
I he Ind III II blinked at the light and
Showed his teeth In a grin
Cursing, though noi unkindly, the
guard pushed the wicket Wide, "Don't
.V come botherln' me any more t'-
night." he counseled as a black blanket
and n ragged skin wriggled through.
The Indian grinned again and did
lint seek lo elude tlie lantern. He-
leased, lie shuttled away, going straight
for the post. But the stockade left a
few rods to tlie rear be changed Ids
course and made toward the river.
Close lo Its edge he hailed and mocked
the signal.
The call was repeated softly. Then
call and echo neared by degrees, until
the Indian and the interpreter were
touching hands.
There was uo need for words. The
night's work was planned. They started cautiously upstream. Before long
they were behind tlie stables, ready for
I lie second step. It was one that devolved upon Matthews For it he carried a long knife, single edged, keen
and slightly curved, like a saber.
First be tiptoed lo the nearby repair
Shop, where tlie stable guard and two
hot-tiers wore gathered about a lantern, relieving their Irksome hours

Interpreter looked in upon the group.
I ieil in twus uutslde the long barn
were six horses, the mounts of the
guard Knell of the animals was bridled    and   saddled.     Matthews    weut
fr  pair to pair of tlie horses, steal
hiji   along   carefully.     When    he   was
fliuie with Ihe six he disappeared inside. Down the rows of stalls his
wink was surer aud more swift. What
noise tie made was drowned by the
rush of the river.
Now Indian and white ally continued
upstream Beyoud the northern sentry
line and beyond the sod huts uf the
senilis tbey spied tlie first sign of the
horse held tbey sought, a herd com
posed of tbe sutler's spike team, a
four in-hand used on tlie wood wagon,
Lieutenant Fraser's Buckskin and a
dozen or fifteen second choice mounts
belonging io absent ollieers. That sign
was a spark on the ground a long way
ahead. Tbey knew it for the lantern
of Ihe remaining herder.
Matthews turned aside toward the
landing "We meet hero," be whis
pered.
The Indian grunted an assent and
made off iu tlie direction of tho distant
spark
When he came back some time had
passed A Hash of lightning disclosed
Iliin lo Matthews, who saw that the
other was wiping at his face with bis
skirt
"How did It go Canada John?" ask
ed tlie Interpreter.
Canada John laughed. "The herder
was glad to see Squaw Charley," lie
answered, "lint he fought like a
badger "
"Here Is the small boat. When you
have finished ou this side remember
the Man Who Buys Skins is on the
other. He will lie glad to see Squaw
Charley too."
"Have you the oil?"
"Yes" The Interpreter felt for the
other's hand nnd gave him a can. They
parted for the second time.
Canada John now started for tb?
post. As he went he pulled dry gra'S
until his arms were full. Arrived I'e
side the barracks, lie began to pile t'le
grass against tbe pine wall
Iu the blackness Brannon lay peaceful. The sentries were announcing
their cheery "All's well!"
The Interpreter had reached the herd,
where he was taking the rope hobbles

'Ibis dune he climbed into a herder's
saddle and headed the band slowly up

He dared not waste anolliei minute
Quickly he wound some glass into a

The next moment an amazed sentry
who was pacing liis beat by the scouts'
huts saw the growing bonfires and
called out iu alarm to nnother Before
the latter could reply the end of the
barracks was burning Both sentries
fired their guns The sergeant of the

delay, and business men cannot afford delays.
