The aldermen in the West ward
are elected by acclamation. There
was some talk on Tuesday morning
about Mr. Harvey intended to withdraw from the mayorafty race, and
also as an aldermanic candidate; and
it was likewise intimated tbat one
of the school trustees candidates and
another East ward aldermanic candidate would drop out, thus electing the entire ticket by acclamation.
The latest indications, however, are
that all the candidates will remain
in the Held, and that a poll will be
taken on Thursday next.
phere of the thistle, the heather anrl
"dear auld Scotland." The play is
wonderfully true to life in its delineation of Scotch character, such
characters as may even now be found
in country towns in Scotland, where
the Calvanistic doctrines of redemption and damnation are lived up to
so closely that domest c ties are apt
to become 'sacrificed on what the
"unco guid" consider the altar of
religious duty.
In Lachlan Campbell is shown
one whose heart is overflowing with
tender love for his motherless
daughter, yet he in a moment of
what he deems righteous wrath,
drives her from his home, and
struggling against his fatherly affec
tion tries to make himself believe
tbat his act was tbat of a just and
God-fearing man. He is trans
formed from an ascetic and literal
believer in the Calvantic interpretation of the Scriptures to one who
after all tees some good in the golden rule. All tbis Is very beautifully
brought out in the play. The comedy element in the piece is strong
and persistent. Its chief exponent
is Postie, whose droll philosophy
and witticisms are an excellent foil
for the more serious portions of the
play. Tbe company this season is
all tbat could be desired, while a
quartette of male singers and William Meikle, a Scotch bag-piper,
will add to the general effectiveness.

The Colonial Tourists, which present "Tbe Rajah" at the Dreamland
theatre Saturday night, the 15th
inst., came with the reputation of
being one of tne best musical comedy companies tbat tour Canada.
Tbis company is establishing - a circuit from Calgary to Vancouver,and
in future will be seen here every
two months. No expense will be
spared to produce the best attractions possible, so that the reputation of the company will ensure a
full bouse. The large number of
people carried, including special
scenery, costumes and electrical effects, make it imperative to play to
full houses, and the in magem en

the theatre going public of the city
will respond accordingly. The musi
cal comedy, "The Rajah," that is to
be produced here, has enjoyed enormous popularity wherever played.
It is full of mirth-provoking situations, tuneful music and scenic effects, and with the full strength of
the Colonial Tourists should afford
a good, clean evening's entertain

with them the famous Queen City

The youug men of Knox congregation treated their lady friends to a
sleigh ride on Thursday night, and
for thiee or four hours joy was un-
confined. All the homes between
the manse and Danville were serej
naded by the merry crowd behind
the quartette of prancing steeds.
The pleasure sleigh had been described as "holding thirty-five,"
so thirty-five there must have
been, for from stem to stern
there was no room to let. Song
and story beguiled the minutes, and
no one found fault with the crisp
coldness of a Canadian midwinter
night. The young ladies of the con
gregation had brought toothsome
things to eat, and these were partaken of at tbe manse when the
drive was over. The sleighing party
included Rev. and Mrs. M. D. McKee, Mr. and Mrs. John Wright,
Miss Vera MacLeod, Miss Alice
Kerr, Miss Janet Munro, the Misses
Madeline and Olive Stendal, Miss
Sylvia Covert, the Misses Lila and

Grand ForkB and Greenwood
played avery hotly contested hockey
match at Greenwood last Thursday
night. The Grand Forks team,
last year's champions and the holders of the Boundary cup, went down

in the second half one goal was
scored by each team, leaving the
score a tie when time was called. It

Greenwood landed the puck in the
nets once in each of the five-minute
plays, the final score being 3 goals to
1 in favor of Greenwood. A large
contingent of hockey enthusiasts accompanied the home team to Greenwood.

The annual review issue of thei
Nelson Daily News, printed Inst j
Wednesday morning, is. as usual, j
the most complete that has reached !
our de-k this year. It deals very
comprehensively with the progress;
of mining in the province, as well ns
with the development of the Kootenays and Houndnry generally, during the past year. The review dealing with mining has heen prepared
by 15. Jacobs, one of -the hest informed and most reliable writers on
mining matters in the country, and
cun therefore be accepted as authoritative. The fruit growing industry
and lumbering have also been given
prominence in this year's issue, and
what is said in regard to these may
also be taken as authoritative. Conditions generally in tl-c country are
likewise dealt with, the object of the
publishers evidently being to make
the issue one that will reflect thc
progress which is being made and
the development which is taking
place in this part of Canada.

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
It Makes Weak Women Strong,
Sick Women Well.
It acts directly on the organs affected and is at the same time a general restorative tonic lor the whole system. Il cures lemale complaint right in the privacy
of home. It makes unnecessary the disagreeable questioning, examinations and
local treatment so universally insisted upon by doctors, and so abhorrent to
every modest woman.
We shall not particularize here as to the symptoms of
those peculiar affections incident to women, but Ihuse
wanting full information as lo their symptoms aud
means of positive cure are referred to the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser— 1008 pages, newly revised

to 10,000 acres suitable for fruit
growing, and ihe importation of nursery stock indicated how largely
growers already established were extending their business. It was indicative, too, of the opening that existed in the province for more nurseries for fruit trees. There was a
scarcity of apple trees for planting
last year both in British Columbia
and on the other side of the line, hut
the prospects of the growth of the
industry during the present year are
exceedingly bright. There was an
unusually large quantity of nursery
stock imported in November and December, according to Mr. Cunningham, who says: "During the last
two weeks we inspected flvecarloails
of nursery stock. A large proportion of it consisted of ornanientnI
tree|, and most of it came from
Europe. This European 6tock is
remarkably well packed, and has
come through in good shape. The
European packere use mostly peat
moss, which protects the roots and
give a freshness to the stock which
we do not find in American packed
"We have a great deul of trouble
with Japanese plants, and have had
to condemn many. One large ship
ment of American fruit trees wns
condemned. The shipments of .Inp-
nnese oranges this year were remarkably heavy and exceedingly
satisfactory. This is largely due to
the order I had issued through
the board of horticulture last spring,
notifying the dealers that any Japanese orangeB infected with San
Jose or any othej scale would be
dealt wilh in the same manner as
other fruit similarly affected. Shipments of dni.idunns fruits have been
larger this year than any previous
year. Many have not been in good
condition, and condemnations for
the port of Vancouver will total
I -1,000 packages."

Oldest White Man Dies
Antoine Lam prone, who died at
Kamlppps on Christmas eve, is believed to have been British Columbia's oldest inhabithnt—certainly
the oldest white man in the prov
ince. He wns 111 at the time of
his death. He had himself lost all
count of the passage of years, but
cherished an old, old family Bible,
in which the fact was recorded of
hie birth on March 15, 1798. Old-
timers in the KamloopB district,
among them C. T. Cooney of Tran-
quille, himself a resident of fifty
years' standing, remember Lam-
prone as a very old man when they
came to the country half a century
ago. He had been for years a pensioner of the Hudson's Bay company, for whom he worked as a
trapper and courier in the early days
of the last century.
Christmas Box Worthwhile
When you make a present of a
periodical to a friend or a family you
are really selecting a companion to
influence them for good oj ill during a whole year. If the acquaintances of your sons and daughters
were to talk to them aloud  as some
periodicals talk'to them silently, how
quickly you would forbid the. companionship! In the one case as in
the other, the best course is to supplant the injurious with something
equally attractive and at the same
time "worth while." A food can be
wholesome and utterly distasteful
Reading can be made so, too. But
The Youth's Companion not only
nourishes the mind, but delights it,
just like that ideal human associate
whom you would choose. The
Youth's Companion fills that place
now in more than half a million
homes. Can you not think of another family in which it is not now
known where it would be joyfully
If the 82.00 for the 1910 volume
is sent now, the new Canadian subscriber will be entitled to the Companion's new "Venetian" Calendar
for 1910, lithographed in thirteen
colors and gold. The Youth's Com-
padion, Companion Building, Boston, Mass. New subscriptions ie-
