Considerable business was done at the
Board ot Trade meeting on Thursday
evening. The following "^resolutions, to
be submitted to the Associated Boards
of Trade on (the 26th inst. at Nelson,
were passed:
" W hereas there is a great need felt by
the settler and the popjdaiibn of South-
east,Kootenay for a trunk road through
this portion of tbe province. And whereas ovVing to the lick of such trunk roadB
the population is at the mercy of transportation companies; *;and whereas the
lack of such trunk roads is the great obstacle in tne way of private enterprise
providing long distance telephone communication, which is such a necessity;
and whereas certain portions of such
trunk roads aro already surveyed and
builc, therefore this Board of Trade recommends that the Government of British Columbia be petitioned to take immediate steps to proceed with the construction of the remaining portions .and
link up the roadsalready built."
������"Wheras there is a great need felt in
outlying districts and towuB for long |
distance telephone communication; and'
whereas private enterprise cannot, for
various reasons, be induced to build such
j. out*- distance lines; x beret ore this
rSoard do hereby recommend that the
Provincial Government of British Columbia be petitioned to take some" action
either with a view to building such lines
itself, or to ��flfer inducements to private
enterprise o provide long distance telephone communication, such as provided
by the Alberta Government."
"That whereas lumber is being imported into Southern Alberta from Montana
and is placed on the market at acheapsr
rate to the retailer than oan be. supulied
by the B.O. muls; and whereas there is
no tariff on finished or unfinished lumber coming in from the' United States;
and whereas there is. a tariff againbt
Canadian lumber going into the States;
now this Board of Trade * recommends
that a tarifi be placed on lumber sominsr
in-trom the United States, to meet this
undue competition."     '    ���   -   i

Social a 'Grasid Success
As was predicted, * the whist tournament given last Tuesday evening; under
the auspices of Ohnst Church ladies'

The nest on the program was a,, song
by ,Willie Hall, of Erickson, whioh was
a negro oomic; song that was acted in
costume. This lad sang well and was
loudly applauded. The next was a song
by Mrs. Lindley, which was rendered in
excellent style aud was loudly applauded. After this the whist tournament;
was commenced when whist, with a vengeance was pViyed at twenty tableB.
The first lady's prize was won by Mrs.
R. J. Long, being a magnificent cushion

was won by Leu Richards, and the second gent's prize, a box of silk ihnndker-
obiefs.'was won by E. MoClure. During
tho whist tournament choice selections
ou the piano were played '��y MrR, Roso,
in her usual mastorly style, which aided
muoh in making the evening so enjoy-
This entertainment was one scene of

For the Most Popular Lady.
The Review has, during the past few weeks, been repeatedly requested to hold a young ladies' .popularity contest, as now that the Xmas festivities are over there is
ample time to have a'tnost interesting election contest before spring sets in. Id view of these facts the Review has
decided to hold a Girls' Popularity Contest, the conditions
to be as follows: "
Adv number of young ladies can be nominated by any of
their friends filling up the blank application form below
this notice. Nominations will be open from Saturday the
8th inst to Monday the 24th inst., inclusive, when nominations will close and the final counting cf the votes or
tickets will take place on the 14th day of February next.
After the nominations have been closed, tickets for voting
on the various candidates can be secured at the Review office. The final counting of the ballots' will be conducted by
a committee of three citizens to be appointed later on.
The young lady securing the greatest number oi* votes
will be proclaimed the winner and will be known as the
"Queen of the Popularity Contest" for the Oreston district.
She will receive a prize of $'20 in gold, besides her photo
will appear in the Review as well as other papers in the
province. The votes for each candidate shall cost 25 cents
each. The money secured from the sale of these tickets
will be used for the expenses of <he election and the prize
of $30; and if a sufficient number of tickets are sold to
���warrant it, a percentage of the money will be donated te
the Creston Board of Trade.
Any number of girls can be nominated, but only one can
get the prize    It will cost you nothing to nominate a fair

The East Kootenay Farmers' Institute
held their annual meeting in^ the Cres-
ton Auditorium, on Wednesday the 12th
inst. and was well represented by tho
fan-tiers in both Oreston aad ErickBon
and district.
The president, Mr. J. F. Rose, in his
address expressed himself as highly
gratified-with the success that had at- j
tended the Institute in the past yonr.
Several cars of feed had been purchased
and delivered to the members at wholesale prices. A site had been secured
from th�� O. P. Railway Oo. for a warehouse, whioh would in all probability be
bnilt this yoar and would enable the
ranchers to' gather their produce and
fruit together and ship in oar lots.
Suggestions wero made by several of
the members as to, tho advisability of
such articles as sprayini? materiale, fertilizers, frhit trees, feuolng, and lime,

Jfif* difficult to select from among  ihe quantity displayed the sort of trimming best adapted to the gown for  which it i* intended, and hardest of all  is it to resist the fascinations of some  vivid coloring and effective woik, simply  because it is worked in a design that  ���������will interfere with the lines of the gown.  ���������The safest plan is, as always, to think  first of the lines** and then to choose  the trimming in accord, and there are  ������*o many different- shapes that it is always possible to find something that is  just right.  ^ Jet Trimmed Gowns.  The jet trimmed gown with the piece  of embroidery on net that covers the  front of the" waist and hangs in a  straight panel down the front of tne  -skirt i& completely transfowned into a  far. richer, more elaborate gown, suitable  for a far more formal entertainment  than any for which the plainer style  might be intended. Theie are apt to be  bought tunics ot net, black, white and  "colored, embroidered in jet and colors;  mauve, in really a true amethyst shade.  coral and tuiquoise aie each and all  combined with jet aud the result i> most  satisfactory. The net is never entitely  covered over with the embroidery, and  the design is quite open excepting  around the edges, where the beads are  massed together in such fa-htoa as to  give a much heavier appearance.  White evening gowns, in consequence  of all tne !-ew trimming**, will this season be extremely fashionable. The touch  of color, if color is desired, can be given  by -the trimming of colored beads massed with the eparls, hrinestones or ery-  ..*-���������! ...;j-T,^..t :^������_-r~-r���������~ ,.-:������*. ai��������� ���������1.��������� _c  cv*..   ������. .������.*a\ju.ii   tuuMnji.u^    ...ki.   tut;   ������*.*a.ci   VL  its being an ail white gown. Crystal  beads axe In great demand and are used  by themselves or are combined with  rbinestones or pearls, sometimes with  both, for this is a season when nay two  or three or even four difereut kinds of  beads and spangles can be combined.  J'lst a toueli of black is also very smart,  and cut jet of the finest description is  often worked in with the lightest colorings.  The all white color scheme is most  charmingly carried out in crystals and  pearls on a fine net 01* tulle over white  satin, while in buckle or belt or in the  ��������� embroidery around the shoulders can be  used rhinestoncs if more brilliancy is  desired than is given b}- the pearls and  crystal beads. A serious objection to  manyi of the fine embroidered nets is  found in their lack of wearing quality.  Tlteer never seems to be any positive  knowledge possible as to ypiether * the  most expensive of the embroidered net  gowns or tunics will wear better than  the'cheap bargains tha tare so effective,  and it is certainly most annoying, to  uso a mild expicssion, when a favorite  gown goes all to piecc3 after half a  dozen times of wearing. Of course the  more expensive qualities of net are gen-  oriillly fur more durable, but in buying  any it is wisest to examine most carefully  the texture  and  strength of the  -iiicbIi. Embroidered chiffon are far more  practical, indeed, are extraordinary durable, hut tlio material  itself is muoh  -Iwjivyior unless Uxo "heew-st quality is used. There can be no such effect gained  , as when tho net is put over silk or satin,  and   these are not the days when tlio  jiractica) Common sense view triumphs  over the picturesque and effective. Among the nets there arc many that wear  Splendidly, but those are of the fancy  nets, with decided pattern, not the plain  fine  mesh-like tulle. * "  Embroidered Net Tunics.  Black or white fancy net tunics, enn  hroidercd in color, are worn over satin  gowns of nlmost every color and shade.  A light green Rutin, too vivid or green  to be either becoming or smart, is made  both by nn overdress or tunic of fancy  black net heavily embroidered nround  tho edge arid also ovor the waist part,  with pcarln, jet and iridescent green  beads. The description sounds tawdry,  nlmost barbaric,  but   in    reality   it  is  * merely effective and striking, for the  black not tones down the too vivid shade  of p-reon mo.it satisfactorily. There is  unquestionably.,'..'; decided bnrharic or  Oriental note in nil the colorings and  trimmings this winter, and many of the  newest 'trimmings nro decidedly,, thent*  ���������riciil-r-too much so to make them suit*  able for any place hut tho stage, where  jnorp. perspective con be gained and  where the lighting in so much lietter  than in private life, as it were; but  there nre among tho mnK������ of now designs  'A and color*) plenty to choono that arc  'appropriate for oven a simple Btylo of  gown.

This makes a wonderfully  brilliant gown, but it is too simple without tbe additional trimming, A\hich is  in a wide band across the top of the  low ���������**it waist and then hangs in a  shaped panel to the foot of the skirt.  In openwork heavy jet this is in contrast to the finer jet of the material,  or if it is desired to add color, then the  trimming is in turquoise, coral or emerald beads; or if a more liarbartc  touch is desired the gold or silver or  steel with'some rhinestones is chosen.  Variety   of   Choice.  Where the question of cost does not  have to enter into the calculations of  the winter wardrobe the variety of  choice of exquisite work seems Unlimited, and. indeed, it is quite as difficult  to decide as when the less expensive  ones are to be selected, only the beauty  of coloring and workmanship is euch a  delight: and pleasure to any one" whose  tastes has -been educated in such matters.  There i<* absolutely no necessity this  winter of any woman being badly gowned or wearing shabby looking, pninfuiiy  apparent last year's or two years ago  gowns, for the gowns of last season, or  of several seasons past, can luusu easily  be remodelled and made up to date  enough to serve as a foundation for the  trimmings that this winter are so unmistakably new. Made over gowns are  so apt to be unsatisfactory that it is  often a mistake to spend much money  in having them done over, but this year  there is so little to be done, provided  tho fit is good and the lines passible,  that trimming, not necessarily costly,  will make the gown look like new.  There aro among the mote expensive  trimmings many on the so-ttftlletl theat*  rical order, with colored Btoncs, that  wcer at one timo only U8ed for fancy  dress costumes or for tho stage, These  'to-day arc used to trim the smmtest of  gowns and aro far more effective and  satisfactory than can be realized from  the mere description.

We frequented  theatres and saloons.    One unlucky day  VI w&3 introduced to a young actress���������  Isabelle Dubois. You have seen her. She.  was pretty in thope days, with a bright,  sparking charm of manner.  "A boy caught in the toils of a beautiful and accomplished actress, what  chance had I?   She fooled me to the top  .  Si  cf my bent. She was years older tui&n  I was, but she consulted me about  everything. On one pretence or another she kept me constantly by her side.  1 was so easily duped���������it maddens me  even\now to remember it. I was a boy,  liking flattery, and enjoying the sensation my conquest bad pr&dueed; she was  a keen, shrewd, worldly woman, who had  get her mind on marrying a nobleman**  She began to affect a deep and passion--,  ate love for me. She was always telling  me, -Indirectly, how much she had given  up for my'sake; and one evening she  wept bitterly. She said that people were  talkinb about us, and that we must part.  "When she talked about parting, all  tlie boyish chivalry of my nature was  aroused, and I offered to marry her. She  feigned-reluctance, and when she did so  my desire to-make her my' wife increased. S*ie played with me so skilfully  and so cleverly that 'I -began at last to  believe that all the happiness -of my  life depended on my marrying her; and  then > when her feigned reluctance had  done'its work, 'we were married at the  Church of St." Bioch, in Paris. Ah!  , Huldah, if I could, spare - myself the  Bhame of-telling aiid ybu tho'paih'bf  hearing the rest  of my story!  "I was a boy ���������not twenty���������vain, foolish and credulous; yet even I could not  long be blind to the true character.of  the woman* I had made my wife. She  was a vain, worthless creature. When  I found it out and reproached her, she  laughed at me, nnd openly gloried in  having so cleverly duped me. When I  could bear it no longer, I left hor reproaching hot for boring ruinr-d my life.  " 'I dislike snd de spine you sn much,'  she said, "that I will nofc proclaim the  story of our marriage oven to revenge  myself on you; but I will have my revenge for all that. I swear to take the  bitterest revenge on you that ever woman took on man yet!' "  "Five years since I read in a,French  Journal that was sent to me an announcement of-her death.

You jfcnow how  I desired" tp J*tell you the story of my  folly, but you would not listen to it. I  should never have dared, never have presumed to address one word to you, Huldah,'had I not felt certain of her death.  "Time passed on. The woman that I  had made my wife waited with fell,  cruel patience until she read the au-  nounoementf of our forthcoming marriage, and then slie came ever to England. She might havs warned you au  once, but no, her revenge was to be complete���������she would say nothing until the  morning of our wedding-day.  "What followed you know. Some fme  afterward slie wrote to me to say that  the money I had given her was gone,  and that unlets she had money she would  publish the whole story. Bather than  that, for your sake, Huldah, I would  have beggared myself. My lawyers wiote  to her to come to London, and there  matters were arranged with her.  "I thought I had seen the last of her.  Imagine my horror when, at the railway  station, the guard showed me into the  very carriage where she was seated and  I had no time to change. I do not believe that we uttered one word during  the journey. Then the accident happened. At Biver House I submitted to cix-  cumstancos. I thought we were among  strangers, who would simply be scandalized at the truth. If I had known we  were under your roof, Huldah, I should  hav-e spoken out. I went to Nice to see  if she was really dead, determined that  ^she should trick me uo more, and afterward it was rumored that Lord Wynton  had married abroad and that his wife  was dead. The" truth no one "{knows but  myself and you. Huldah, was I so much  to blame?"  "Then when you began to love me,"  she said, looking steadily at him���������"when  you first asked me to be your wife ������������������  you believed her dead? "I did, as I believe it now."  "You had no idea on that fatal morning, that she was living?" I had not the  faintest idea of it."   -  "Why did ybu not tell me all this  then?"  /'My darling, you would not let me;  you did not permit me to speak. You  forget. Do you not think'you have been  hard upon me, Huldah? Have I not suffered enough for my .stupid folly?"  "Yes, quite enough."  "And my darling, will you listen to  me now. Let-me be happy before I die,  .for the .sake of my great love, my great  despair."  I slipped away from the scene. I am  quite sure that I rambled'for mot-e^thau  two hoars by the water-side and then-r-  well, all I need add is that Lord Wyur"-  ton rowed us home to the Biver Housed  that he dined there, and he made Huldah take off her black dress that very  evening arid put on a white one, in  .whioh she/looked so beautiful that be  could do nothing-but compliment and admire her, .that the walls'of the Biver  House re-echoed with laughter and eons,  and that when I left them they were saying good-night out where the roses and  lilies mingled their perfume and where  Miss oAshcton's face was fairer, sweeter  nnd brighter than ever I had seen it  Wore. They were married in July! Lady  Wvnton has one drawer in her wardrobe which she seldom unlocks, and  when she does so it is to show her child*  ren the dress that she should have worn  "On Her Wedding Morn."  (The End.)

The littlo one lived, despite its near*  noss to death's threshold, Tho proud old  mistress of the groat stone house heard  the pitiful story without the moving of  a muscle, Have that her face grew harder and grimmer.  She gave orders to tho old servant*  that tho oltlld should novmr be admitted  mistake of her life  by  asking      if  granddaughter might be sent for.  Frances Barrison fell *nto a rage ao  alarming that the old servant was literally terrified. She was warned under  pain of instant dismissal never to make  the mistake of making a similar suggestion again. Old Esther knew by that  scene that her mistress' heart was harder.- and stonier than ever.  On that occasion old Esther was also  informed that the-girl she had so unluckily reminded her of should never inherit one dollar of the Barrison money.  ' "2iiy will is already made," Mrs*'. Barrison ariftcui-ced, "and .1 v/iW tell you  this much: T������Fy fortune in its entirety  goes to my nephew by adoption. He is  being educated at Yale���������a groat Eastern  college���������with this object in view."  As she had uttered these words old  Esther had said to herself: "Ah! this  accounts for the lei ter& in ' the bold,  dashing hand -which she had received regularly from the far East." And thj-re  came a day when a large "package came  for her mistress. On opening the casing  it was found to be a large crayon portrait, finely executed, of a young and  handsome man.  "Ah, this is Clifford Carlisle���������my nephew and heir!" she cried, excitedly. "Is  he not a young fellow to be proud of,  Esther?"  The old servant had looked long and  earnestly at the pictured face. Yes, the  face was certainly handsome, but she  told herself that it was not a good one;  there was an expression in the dark eyes  that warned those who were keen, careful judges of human nature to beware,  and the lips whioh tbe curling mustache  half revealed, half concealed, looked  cruel; yet, for all that, the portrait was  an excellent one, revealing Kii as he  was in life���������faultlessly, darkly handsome, like some young prir.es of royal  blood.'  Mrs. Barrison had the picture hung  where she couad feast her eyes upon it  at all times. And after that, long, thick,  closely written letters flew faster than  ever back and forth.  Mrs.' Barrison rarely .made a confidante of old Esther, but once, in the  enthusiasm of the moment, she forgot  her usual reserve and exclaimed, upon  the receipt, of a long, ofifcial-appearing,  envelope:  **I have had a great opportunity to  double the Barrison money, and I have  been wise enough to grasp it. Through  my nephew, dear Clifford, I have secured the right of purchase of a gold mine  in Arizona. Clifford is negotiating the  sale for me."  "Does it take much money, ma'am?"  acked Esthev with the freedom and  biuntne-ss o^a,lifelong-Servitor, and her  mistress replied,: *      ' ']  "Only tep thousand down, Esther, to  ^soix oirbinu the bargain. See,'OHffolnd  has just returned me the receipt "and tlie  papers. When he calls foT it-^-that is,  at the needful time���������I am to pay twenty  thousand more.. He has secured it  through^a dose 'college'churn for that'  The selling price to any^ one else on  eartli'would - positively be'one hundred  thousand dollars, Clifford assures me."  "Have you ever seen the 'mine,  ma'am?" asked Esther.  "No; but Clifford has seen and examined carefully all the maps," she replied,  quickly and confidently.  "I wouldn't like to< pay out a great  fortune for something I hadn't seen or  .ivasnt likely to see," declared Esther,  whioh* remark so angered her mistress  that she was never taken into her confidence again.  But . after . that she would sec a  thoughtful, if .not troubled, look on Mtb.  Barrison's face; it was always after a  letter f remtho so-called nephew had been  received, and she would soon after be  ordered to draw her mistress' desk  close to the bedside, and old Esther knew  by that that' sho had a call from the  East for another cheque to go into tlio  gold mine. Tliia. occurred, so often thai-  old Esther wns not surprised that her  mlstrefls grew nervous and? had some difficulty In. getting to sleep at night.  One day she announced briefly to Esther:  "I, havo , advprtlaed. lor, a young girl  to como here na companion to me, and  havo selected, I think, a opinpetont por-  Bon���������"Miss Ploronco Austin. The young  lady will bo hero to-day."   y  .Tlds' announcement nearly: took old  Esther's breath away, it. had been so  many years since a stranger had oroeeed  that threshold.  stead, she beheld a tall young woman  with a face so like the little painted wax  dolls with their flaxen hair anil pink  and white faces, that were in the Hadlev  shop windows at Christmas time, tha't  she could not for the life of her judge  whether el:c was t*v������ntv nr thirt-v.  But at first glance honest Esther did  nofc take to the lovely stranger. She  oould not have told why. Miss Austin  had not been an inmate of the old stone  house a fortnight ere she had ingratiated herself completely in Mrs. Barrison's good graces. She learned many of  the family secrets, that the handsome  young man whose portrait graced the  easel in her mistress* bedchamber was to  be Mrs. Barrison's sole heir. She learned, too, tliat he was expected at Christmas to pay her a long-promised visft.  Miss Austin had no desire to wander  beyond the grounds of the ohl stone  house; she never went into the village.  This so pleased Mrs. Bairi&on that one  day she cried, enthusiastically:  "You are a jewel of a girl, my dear. I  do wish that you and Clifford would fall  in love with each other when he comes.  I wouid further the match in every way  possible." '       J  "Oh, dear Mrs. Barrison!" slie had  murmured, in apparent dismay. "So  handsome and brilliant a young man���������  one who is to inherit such great wealth  ���������would never look at a poor companion  like me." ������������������  But, for all that, Miss Austin had  long since made up her mind to wed Mrs.  Barrison's handsome heir.  She had never heard of the existence  of the  disowned young  granddaughter.  ' CHAPTER II.  ' The eventful day had rolled around  at last. .Since early morn Miss Asutin  had bean in a fever of exceptancy,  though her calm manner in no way betrayed it. She counted the hours secretly and silently, but with no less anxiety than Mrs. Brarison did. The noon  hour came and *a ent ��������� the afternoon wore  slowly.on, and at last dusk fell.  She had obeyed her mistress' command  to order the candles lighted throughout  the house with alacrity. The guest chamber had been put" in" readiness. There  was nothing else to be done now, save to  stand at the window and wait and watch  for the coming of the heir.  Miss Austin had spent more time than  ever before in her, room that afternoon,  and when she emerged from it she looked more than ever like the wax dolls in  the shop*windows, to which old Esther  always compared her.  '   She  had taken  one    long,  lingering  glance   into   the   narrow,   old- fashioned  minor ere she turned away.   Evidently  the critical survey of the reflection she  gaaedrupon satisfied her.   < >���������   ���������  , "I think you will win the goal of your  ambition, Edith Jennings���������or Fiorice Austin, as they are pleased to*knpw~and call  you beneath this roof," She murmured to  heraelf.      "When    you A read   the    advertisement    of    the    wealthy,    lonely  old lady who wanted a companion, you  said to yourself: .'Ah, here is an opportunity which'might pay better than being a circus performer; I will secure that  position   and   entwine   myself so   completely around the-old woman's heart  that she will make' a will leaving me  her fortune, -and it shall-not be long after that ere*I shall come into possession  of it.'

To re-supply it with plant food,  he buys and contributes to the land  quantities of expensive fertilizers.

Brother fruit {-rowers,���������-You have seen  the editorial comment is the issue of  January 7th, relating to this question.  AEn my judgment, the editor ia very'  conservative in his criticism, and with a  warm friendly cornier for oar local fruit  ���������growers. Now, brothers, it i������ up to us  to bestir ourselves and awaken from our  lethargy of indifference to our own welfare. Papers of all description, relating  to fruit and agriculture, have most able  Tw>������t;������- oj������ ���������h������ stifj-iecfc of mors fraseraal  co-operation amongst farmers and fruit  growers.  As you have seen, our kind editor will  meet us more than half way for this  3-urpoge, by offering space in his paper,  -where we can meet and exchange  thoughts and suggestions for the better-  ���������ment and promotion of our local fruit  anduBtry. To accomplish anything we  ahust work with a point in view and  along some planes of action; snd for  this purpose would most sincerely appeal  to brother frnit grower to come forward  "with his thoughts, suggestions and experiences for our mutual benefit.  For a starter, we will first suggest  that the editor will set aside a special  corner in his paper for this kind of communication, as soon as he considers is of  sufficient importance to justify same.  The second and foremost issue in my  -judgment is a closer tie and fraternal  feeling amongst our local fruit growers,  with the ultimate result of co operation  in oil actions relating to frnit growing,  from the pulling of the stumps to the  delivery of our products on the English  market.  As I consider this sulhcient for a start*  or, will close with the proposition that  as at present thero are two organizations  of frnit growers in Oreston���������The Farmers' Institute and the Oreston Frnit and  Produce Association���������that the two or*  gauizations affiliate into one, namely,  that of tha Farmers' Institute. As it is,  ������ division of forces and energies, a waste  of timo to attend the meeting of two organizations, when one will accomplish  better results; and it must be appnront  to all frnit growers that they have everything to gain and nothing to lose by  plaoinjf themselves under the patronage  of the government, such as is provided  for in the Farmers' Institute. The writer is of the opinion this provision will  ultimately lead to the mnch needed con*  tralization for tbe diapoaolof the farms'  and orchards' products of our province.  Local Fruit Gnowr.it.

It gave SSO for and 419 against,  a majority of 401 for local option.  Eleven constituencies carried the vote  with the necessary 50 per cent, and 460  to spare. These were Alberni, Dewd-  ney, Grand Forks, Kaslo. New Westminster, Ricnmond, Saanich, Skeena  and Ymir.  Local Option Lost  The last of tbe patiently awaited results iu the local option vote was recoivod  today, says tbe Vancouver Province,  last Saturday, and upon tbo final count  victory is claimed by both sides.  The oomplated returns as now in tho  hands of Rer, Dr. Spencer, show 1888  3ewt than the neosssary 60 per cent, of  the total votes oast for tbe candidates.  Mat to meet thie, 1400 at least will be  claimed upon the rocount boforo tlio  court oa spoiled ballots, a deficiency of  the ballot papers in some of the con*  fctltnenoies, as also upon irregulmritioa.  ���������4We shall spply for that recount at  rmee," aaid Rev. Pr. Spencer, who tx-  }>ecu that e?en, more than tbe 14(H) now  claimed will bo allowed.  If allowed at tbat figure it would givo  local option tho victory over the uecoHs*  jiry ������0 percent, by 13, upon tho count as  )������sted on the figures of the returning officers for and against the plebiscite.  The dootor gave "The Proylnoa" thin  ���������Utement:  Tho local option returns are complete  today except tho allocation of thespoilwl  ballots and other claims. Those are tho  returns received.  Well-known Fruti Expert Has  Untimely End  It is with deep regret that we have to  announce the sudden death by accident  of-Mr. Walter Palmer, the government  fruit packing expert, who, it will be remembered gave a most interesting exhibition on packing apples, at J. Comp-  ton's ranch, last October. It appears  th3t the deceased was in the act of boarding a passenger train at Sidney, B.C., a  few days ago, when he got crushed be.  tween the car and the platform, with  fatal results.  During his short visit to Creston last  fall, the deceased, by bis genial and  friendly manner, made many friends,  who will learn with sorrow of his un.  timely end.

Once thero was a .dunce.  xne name of this dunce was "Waller*  Scott, and when he wa sat school he was  such a dull boy that his teacher called  him  "the  great  blockhead."  But Walter Scott did not cry and he  always tried to do his best and afterward, when he grew up to be a man. he  became famous all the world over because of the great books which he wrote.  And because he was so famous he was  made a knight, and afterward he was  known as Sir Walter Scott. A  And .yet he was such a dunce at  school.  .One day, when he had became a famous man, Sir Walter ������������������ Scott went on a  visit to the very same school where he  had been called ''the great blockhead.*'  He talked to the teachers and to the  boys, and then he said. "You have  shown me the clever boys. Now show me  the dunce. ^You have one, haven't you?"-  The teacher, therefore, called up a  poor little boy, who was very bashful at  being brought before such a famous  man as Sir Walter Scott.  Sir Walter smiled cheerily at the little boy, and said. "So you are the dunce,  are you?" 'Yes, sir," said the little boy.  Sir Walter pated him kindly on the  head, and said, "AVell, my good fellow,  I was the dunce when I-was her*, so  here is a half crown for keeping my  place-warm.!" ���������   -a-a.'.':-.-:  I rather think that every boy in the  school must have wished he was',-the.,  dunce then! y  ���������������������������-     ��������������������� -s*'.  .Or.    tVVc������r-ss.������������*'83 '  9ra������S.S*ssr6    sP*f.������"*������is������*fe    ^li-assy  are   not  a  new   and   untried A remedy���������our grandfathers used them.

The following method of painting a  cptnent wall was described at a recent  convention of Canadian master painters.  The building had become discolored in  places, and the joints were of diferent  color   from  the surface   of   the   blocks.  Two parts of. Portland cement, together  with one part of marble dust, we're mixed with water to tlie consistency of thin  paint or a thick whitewash. The wall  was well welted before the application  oi the paint nnd kept constantly wet  while the material was applied, nnd then  kept for a day in order to make the cement wash adhere to the "cement sur-  fnce. The waslt wns applied with ordinary whitewash or calcimine'brushes, and  a man was kept .busy playing a spray  on it while the work was hi'ing done.

Buildings.  A building in the throes of an  earthquake tends to vibrate like an  inverted pendulum, or more frequently like a series of thcm.f-ince it is  usually constrhcted of different materials, each having its own natural  period of vibration. Not only do the  different materials correspond to different vibration periods, but if thoro  are wings or extensions to the main  portion of the building, these ports  in so far as they vibrate aa units, will  further have different periods from  the main portion. It is this difference  of vibration period which gives' rise  to differential internal or 'racking"  stresses tending to destroy the integrity of tho structure, If nil parts  can bo firmly joined together that tho  building movofl essentially ns a nuit,  it. may be snid to bo "earthquake-  proof." Tho building might Btill bo  overturned bodily, but except ovor or  very near a main fault lino, experiences indicates that this is not likely to occur. Again, it might me Bunk  into looeo doposits, but. . this can  probably bo largely prevented by providing suitable artificial foundations.  ���������Engineering  Mngns-Jno.

The Scientific American has the following note of interest and importance:  "The cause of the* disappearance of rust  from iron bars, etc., used in the erection of reinforced concrete structures  has been traced by Rohland, in Stahl  und Eisen, to the presence of acid carbonates and sulphates in the cement,  these salts dissolving the iron oxido aud  leaving the metal bright. The eement  in setting absorbs carbonic acid from  the air, thus forming the necessary acid  carbonates, and experience has shown  that the de-rusting process is effected  while the concrete is setting and eon������-  mencing to harden. This discovery/ affords an additional.'guarantee for the  safety of reinforced concrete. structures,  inasmuch as the metal is protected from  'rusting by the alkaline reaction of the  cement during the mixihg* procesf-, and  action of the acid carbonates in au carl;  stage iu the erection of the structures.  -������������������������������������������������������-;������������������*>.*��������������� ':.-.

The outlook for wild ducks and geese  .in-Carolina, waters, whence comes most  of the supply used here, is said to be  good, as the recent eopl weather is  causing the birds, to appear in numbers  on their feeding grounds in the sounds.  ���������Washington Star.   ������������������.' ^ ������"ft' .���������������������������  Minard's Liniment Cures- Colds, etc.  . ���������-���������- * ������ -���������������������������������  yWiilA Ye Not WatchAWith Me  ���������;s' One Hour.  .

Now these' servenats  Oir. camp at Annootok was established in a miniature shack, constructed of  packing boxes by Dr. Frederick A.  Cook, tae explorer. This had been his  home during the previous winter. It  was here J spent the trying months 'of  the long iirctic night, varying the tedious-existence with short sledging journeys, during moonlit periods, in search  of reindeer and bears."  These journeys gave us sufficient exercise to preserve a healthful condition  of mind and body. No words can adequately describe the awful pall of 'the  Arctic night. It is unreal and terrible.  The continued darkness brings with it  a fearful stillness, over which seems  to brood impending doom���������something intangible, indescribable, uncanny." Tlie  only sound that ever breaks the quiet is  the occasional cracking of a glacier,  with the^ report of mighty thunder,  startling .and unexpected.* Intense and  severe-as the cold may be, any active  man can stind it without serious' suffering, for that acts only upon the physical being, and can be guarded against;  but the prolonged, sunless knight has a  dire effect upon the mind, which only  exercise and diversion can counteract.

Is it not time that all dairy farmers  in Canada came tq thing seriously of  what might easily'be accomplished by  a little, a very little^ extra effort? Very  few would pass by the opportunity of  picking np five or six dollar bills if tlie  conditions were not difficult. There is  a huge srfm of money waiting for owners of dairy cows. , -   ->    ,  Nofc only is present cash value assured for ,the application of a little  brain power, but solid wl permanent j  improvement of dairy conditions,, a distinct raising of the whole status of dairy  farming, a measurable- gain in   content-  Incnt and self-respect, a notable and  ���������nviable addition to our reputation  among the nations of the world'as high-  class dairymen would quickly result.  Unfortunately wc have' to !go on record  even in these days of widespread and  easily available raidy knowledge ns  owning lots of cows that produce only  2,S0O or 2,500 lbs. milk during their  best six or seven months." Such cows  arc no credit to their owners, nnd such  owners scarcely ������do credit to'the dignified title of dairyman' As Canadians  wo should jealously guard ngainst such  a condition of affairs being possible. It  is ensy to detect thoso poor cows by  recording weights of milk, and it is  injurious to nny district to retain such  wretched specimens, mongrels, not real  dairy cows. The quecik of the dairy,  the select co.w, will do infinitely better  if handled 4-ight by men who put dairy  intelligence into daily operation. To  return to thai; pile oE ensh, if only half  the cows in Ontario wore made t������7 yieVl  ���������just ten dollars' more milk, it moans  nn ONtva five millions o>f dollars within  ensy reach. C.
