The presence of such a store in the
city -would be it great boon to all concerned. In addition to that substantial
fact it would be a splendid compliment
and advertisement to the city as a whole.
Though a pioneering company even
the Hudson's Bay people are not likely
to locate in a dead town in the forlorn
hope that it would resurrect itself
at their bidding. It is an organization
with one of the finest executives in
the world, and if they come to Prince
Rupert they will mean business. It
is up to Prince Rupert to see that they
get it.

j It is understood in well-informed circles that there will be no
change in the composition of the
Board of License Commissioners
this year. Mayor Manson will
recommend the reappointment of
Commissioners Smith and Merryfield.
Aid. Kirkpatrick and Mr. M.

recommended to assist the Muyor

Alderman Smith is the only member
of the old council who keeps his old

to congratulate the Mayor and the
aldermen upon their election. The
confidence of the people of Prince
Rupert had thereby been reposed in
them und it now became their duty to
discharge their various offices in a
manner that would relied credit upon
themselves. The people who had elected
them would no doubt desire to have

therefore the duty of the newly elteted
council to look after the!r interests
efficiently, but with u due regard fnr

A Modified Greek Coiffure
A much modified Greek coiffure is
attractive for a girl of seventeen or
eighteen. The pompadour is made
quite small all round with the knot
at the nape of the neck. A Psyche
knot here is prettiest if there is sufficient hair for u knot of fairly good
size, otherwise one long puff or roll
will give about the same effect.
This is much the same coiffure so
generally worn a yeur ugo, but the
pompadour has grown decidedly smaller
and the knot is placed further down
on the neck thun in thc former arrangement. The ideal type of feminine beauty in the world und of all
the agea is the Greek, and the most
prominent feature of a Greek female
statue is the small head.
With this ideal in view it is impossible to keep longer to the enormous
pompadour with ihe hair standing out
nt the sides so wide as to utterly disfigure and dwarf the naturally pretty
lines of the profile and shape of the
heud. Even very young girls nre apt
to adopt the extreme in huirdressing,
und they, as well ua their older sisters,
should avoid all exaggeruted coiffures
and keep to the simplest effects possible
if they wish to appear really smart.
And even in a woman's enlightened
love there are still outbreaks and
lightnings and night along with the
light." Mrs. Ellis hus picked up in
unothcr essay of the philosopher another excerpt which fits in here. In it
the philosopher says: "Women would
like lo believe love can do all. It
is a superstition peculiar to herself.
Alas, he who knows the heart finds
out how poor, helpless, pretentious and
liable to error even the best, deepest
love is,  how  it  rather  destroys than

The Perfect Living Room
After all thc modern house decorators huve said their last word on
the subject it would be hard to find
anything half so satisfactory as the
simple rules given by William Morris
for thc making of a perfect room. The
woman who is planning lo rearrange
her house this fall with a view to adding to its comfort and attractiveness
would do well to read over what Willium Morris wrote about the furnishing
of the living room.
"Perhaps it will not try your patience too much." he writes, "if I lay
before you the idea of the fittings necessary to the sitting room of a healthy
person���first a bookcase with a great
many hooks in it, next a table that
will keep steady when you write or
work at it, then several chairs that
you can move and a bench thut you
can sit or lie upon; next a cupboard
with drawers; next unless either the
bookcase or ihe cupboard be very
beautitul with puinting or curving,
you will wunt pictures or engravings,
such as you can afford, only not stop-
gups, but real works of art upon the
wall, or else the wall itself must be
ornamented with some beautiful or
restful pattern. We shall nlso want
u vase or two to put flowers in, which
latter you must have sometimes, especially if you live in town. Then there
will be the fireplace, of course, which
in our climate is bound to be thc chief
object in the room."
Qoutrs Nietzsche on Women
Mrs. Havcrlock Ellis, who hus made n
careful study of Nietzsche, says the
philosopher is strangely reticent about
women, although he evidently has
worked ' out a philosophy concerning
them. She quotes him as saying,
"Everything in woman is a riddle."
She points out that he has said in one
essay. "The true man wants two different things, danger and diversion.
He therefore wants a woman as the
most dangerous plaything." The philosopher, elaborating on this point,
says in every man there is always the
element of the child and that woman
is his plaything. The writer then
quoteB this excerpt from Nietzsche:
"ln a womun's love there are unfuirness
nnd blindness to all she does not, love.
This Is One on Ua
"You allege cruelty, madam," says
the cou t. "What particular form of
cruelty?"
"Your honor," says the complainant,
"my husband'got mad and threw things
et me because I tried to please him
with the meals I fixed for him."
"What have you to say?" alia the
judge of the defendant,
"I'll tell you judge. Maybe I was a
little husty, but it's this way: She is
always trying new salads that she finds
in the recipe columns of the papers,
and after I had tried to cat nasturtium
sulad, and hickory nut salad, and carrot salad, und egg-plant salad.and dried
beef salad, and spaghetti salad, I did
lose my temper when she handed me a
dish of shredded crysanthemums with
olive oil on them."
"I will not grant a divorce, but I will
censure the defendant in my private
office," says thc judge, leading the wuy.
Once the door is closed on him und the
wondering defendant, the judge says:
"Shake, old man! I did the best I
could for you. I have to put up this
bluff about censuring you because my
own wife will read of the case, und she
is now making delicious desserts from
cold mush and left-over breakfast foods."
Clasping each other's hands, the two
men weep silently.

THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET MAC
A LITERAL TRANSLATION OF A HITHERTO UNPUBLISHED   PAPYRUS   ROLL   OF  GREAT  ANTIQUITY
Bowser speaketh to MacBride, the
despot, on the uncertitude of politics���
on the ingratitude of constituents���on
the troubles of political bosses and other
things.
Yea, verily thou art right in thy
deductions,  my son,  quoth  Mae,  and

Is he not the one who faithfully
served us. Even so Bayeth those who
have dwelt in the land of Prince Rupert
for years and are Oldtimers.
But Manson was wise, and looketh
not for their support, but seeketh out
the CheeChokoos, ihose who are green
methinks I see trouble brewing ���for us and not versed in the History of Ru| irl,
in  the  land  of  Prince   Rupert;    only
seven   moons   have   passed   since   my
noble  Commander  went   down  to  inglorious defeat at the hand of him they
of which there are many
Then cometh VSmith. the Silent
and offereth up his house, the Empress,
and Bayeth:     "Take this which is mine,
call Stork, and he and his tribe caused J Oh Manson, that thee and thy tribe
us great trouble, yea, even great an->niay guiher and make speech to the
noyance. multitude."   And so it came io pan
And Bowser answereth him meekly I that when the Moblites sought out
saying "My Lord, Thou who are mighty, j MacMillan, and beeeeched of him tho
go thou into the land of the enemy use of his house, he said unto them
and surely thou with thy great sword ! with broad smiles and with thick chest
can  conquer them."      And  forthwith
he prepared to go.
Now, as it came to puss, Tomdun
was a great man and went forth with
a will of his own, and fought in the
army  of  Fred  Stork  the valiant   de
"Even now my boss VSmith hath
decreed that none other than he, the
favored, shall use it."
Thus it was that the tribe of Manson
called many meetings that they might
cajole   ihe   workmen   with   visions   of
fender of  I'rince  Rupert.    And so it | much pay, small hours and much taxes,
came  to  pass,  on  the arrival  of the j That they might combine their forces
despot there were not cheers for him
but instead traitors, und backslidden
were among his ranks. Even Stephens
und others openly mocked him.
And his heart was faint within him,
and his great hairy head sunk for many
were the deserters within his ranks,
yea, even Morrow the Butcher waa
dead und gone, und defeat stareth him
in the face. McMortie to right of him,
McMortie to left of him, into the face
of Wataon he blundered, HillsU's *
volleyed und thundered, but still In-
lost not his head.
He culleth Toll.dun to his side, he
ringcth for Munson, he whistled for
Stephens und others, und with deep
nnd thunderous voice berated them
with dire threats of vengeance, should
they again disobey him. But they would
have none of him.
And he was saddened to number
Tomdun among the wicked, for there
was none like him in all the lund of
Prince Rupert, and he needed him.
So he spake to Tomdun in a loud voice
und layeth. "Therefore thou shalt
eat the fruit of thy disobedience all
the days of thy life, and I shull lake
thy job a-Auy from thee, und thou
shalt go und dwell in B fur country. I
shull buy thi-e us my slave, even us
n hireling for my servunt." And Tomdun was afruid, for he was un ancient
among men.
All of these things Dirk Mncliride
noted for he is a wisemun. and he
gaaed sadly upon Tom. und again spoke
upon him with gentle voice, yen. even
with brotherly affection, und said:
"But whosoever shull dwell with me,
und shull work my will, he shall he
rewarded, them shull I shower wilh
the root of nil evil, and shall smother
them with greenbacks und choke with
much copper."
Whereupon they proceeded to the
I'rince Rupert Club, where there wus
much rejoicing, for he was won over.
And it Came to [����� after many
weeks, that Manson, the Member,
with great cunning und forethought,
came forward, and suyeth to the people
of Prince Rupert. "Lo nnd Behold me,
a Member and a Mighty man, am
chosen by Dick to beat Mobley and
run thee," and there wus great cheering
among his followers, for they thought
to elect him.
Then it was that the people of Prince
Rupert rose in a loud voice and said:
"No, we will have none of thee." And
forthwith they formed the Moblcyites.
for Mobley was a mun of deeds, u great
man und strong, and they knew his
sterling worth. For had he not eait
his lot among them? Is he not a property holder?   Is not his business n great
ugainst Puttullo iuui others. Even
thut they might hnve their Hoodlums
und Boohers make loud noists nnd
cheering, thut they might deceive the
Cheechokoo, and laud thcmeelvts with
much false praise und false glory. Even
thut they might till fibs, und make
many rash promises, and drown their
opponent's voices Even Newton ihe
Scribe und Traitor rose up und sayeth
in u loud voice, "Here is he meaning
Mohlt-y who has served thee, let liim
till thee what he has done." <ii(i
Mobley the modest, left it to the
peoples. M uny Boos und much cheering.
I, Mac the prophet, obscure mun,
but observing, doth in this hour of
strife and of buttle, usscrl that ihe
tribes in I'rince Ruix-rt were made
blind with noise und Boollooing, und
nnd that ere they get wise they will
suffer much for their unwisdom.   Selah.

CHIPS FROM THE
HUMORISTS*
"There's nothing Ilka u baby in the
house to brighten it up."
"Yes; especially when il ought to be
dark and still."
Mistress Nora, I saw a policeman in
the park today kiss a baby. I hope you
will remember my objection to such
things.
Nora���Sure, ma'am, no policeman
would ever think iv kissin' yer baby
whin I'm around.
"Did you say you were a month in
your last place?"
"Yts. madam - a week with the
family on the top floor, a week with
the lady on the third tloor, a week on
the second, and a week on the ground
floor."
AND THE ADS WELL
In Zanesville, O., they tell of a young
widow who, in consulting a tombstone-
maker wilh reference to a monument for
the deceased, ended the discussion with:
"Now, Mr. Jones, all I want to say is,
"To My Husband," in an appropriate
place."
"Very well, ma'am," said the stonecutter.
When the tombBtone was put up the
widow discovered, to her amazement,
that upon it were inscribed these words:
To My Husband.    In an Appropriate
Place
"Yes, sir," said old DeScadds. "I
judge a man by the company he keeps.'
"Thank you," rejoined young Would-
bee.
"Thank me!" exclaimed the old man
"Why should you thank me?"
"Excuse me," said the young man,
"but I thought you had in mind the fact

XMAS ON PORCHER ISLAND
Settlera Celebrate Occaaion  with a
Merry Time
The second annual entertainment
was given by thc school children in
the school house, Porcher Island, on
December 26th.
A large and varied programme was
rendered by the children in a most
effective manner. A cantata entitled
"Santa and the Runaways" was especially well rendered. The well-known
characters of Mother Goose and Santa
Claus being well represented by Miss
Jessie Tallander and Master Leon
Hunter respectively. The chorus being
well sustained by Harry Gilbert, Eddie
Hudson, Mary Sims, Victor Tallander,
Kitty Gilbert, Alec. Sims, B. Elstermann
J. McAlaister, S. H. Engle, B. Sims, T.
E. S. Gilbert all as nursery rhyma
characters.
Songs and recitations filled the rest
of the programme. Great credit is
due to Mrs. Warner and Mr. Murray,
for the painstaking manner in which
the children were trained.
When one remembers that as recently
as three years ago the island was inhabited solely by a few straggling
settlers, the fact of such an entertainment being given serves to show the
vast progress made in such a short time.
In the evening a social was held at
which about fifty were present.
On January 6th, a surprise visit
was paid to Mrs. Tallander at the
post office, twenty-five being present.
A social club was organized to meet
semi-monthly, the object being to make
the settlers bettet known to each other
An enjoyable evening was passed with
songs, music and games, etc. Thc next
meeting is to be held January 20th, at
Mrs. Warner's home.

PRINCE ALBERT
HOME AT LAST
NEARLY    FOUNDERED   ON   THE
WORST VOYAGE OF CAREER
C. T. P. Boot Haa Terrible Experience
on Her lalands Trip- Buffeted and
Held up by Snow Storm- Crew
Dissatisfied.
When the G.T.P. boat Prinde Albert,
better known in these waters as the
Bruno, which had been expected to
reach Prince Rupert two days before,
steamed silently into the harbor on
Friday, from prow to stern she was
buried in a winding sheet of snow. She
had just returned from her trip round
the Island ports.
Worat Trip Ever
She had the worst trip of her career.
Between Queen Charlotte and Lockport
she sailed into the worst blizzard that !
has ever visited thut part of the coast.
It was thought that she would never
make the port of Lockport and the
conditions on board were so bad lhat
she was expected to founder every
minute. Nothing but her remarkable
buoyancy kept her afloat in such a
furious maelstrom of wind and snow.
For hours at a stretch she lashed firmly
! in the teeth of the gale with no possible
1 chance of obtaining assistance. The
raging storm prevented the effective
use of the wireless, and the turbulent
sea made it ludicrous to think of using
the boats.
Crew  Dissatisfied
Added to all the depressing circumstances the water pipes went out
of business, and the meat supply was
rapidly running short. The enw were
in a sorry plight when the boat reached
this port late ut night. They hud not
washed for several days and were in
anything but a happy frame of mind
despite the fact thai they had apparently
emerged successfully from their trying
bout with death. They complained
bitterly not only of the storm, which
they assert, was the worst they ever
experience on the coast, but they
complained bitterly of the treatment
meted out to them by the steward,
i The supply of food ihry claimed was
not  sufficient  for the  warts of  men.
No  Accident!
On account of her lateness the Prince
Albert was unable tn make the run to
Stewart with the north bound passengers of the Prince George.

(Special to the Optimisti
London. Jan. 16.���The London Morning Post in an article reviewing the

lhat the United Slates government is
making desperate efforts to forestall

the view that there can be no questioning the poinl. Whether the States will
be successful or not depends upon whether Mr. A.J. Bulfour rises lo the occasion.

MURDERED FOR

SEPTUAGENARIAN MISER MEETS
WITH TERRIBLE END
Head Battered With Hammer���
Weapon Found Near by��� Clue to
Murderer I* Track of Cutter and
Horses Feet in Snow.
(Speciul to the Optimist)
Wesley, Ontario, Jan. 14.���The body
of Franz Lobinski, a reputed miser of
seventy years of age, wus found in the
buck yurd of his little shack in the
bush near Berlin. His head hud been
hammered in with a weapon which was
found lying in a field nearby. The
crime hud obviously been committed
for the money which the old man was
known to have hoarded up.
The only clue that presents itself
to the police is the track in the snow-
made by the cutter and the footprints
of the team both going and coming.
Everyone in the neighborhood waa
shocked by the occurrence.
