the first place they had received
the plans oftthe old power'house,
and had written to Mr." Ashbridge
as' civil' engineer, and advised
that the power house should be
built larger in order to contain the
plant. This, however, was not considered, and the plant was made to
some extent ."smaller than it was
intended to be, in order to accommodate'itself to the building"".
statement did not "exhdnorate ■ the
Fairbanks peoplefromstayingwith
,  their guarantee
Mayor DeHart [stated  that Mr.
Smith, of the  Fairbanks Co., had
—arrived'iast week,  and  had- had
^another; look at the plant.    The
'are' light"transformer*  had' been
' - properlv fixecj and the streets were
now better^ lighted. . i The exciter
~. had also been., looked into and a
new armature put'on.-   Mr. Smith
had stated that if the  exciter was
not *hen satisfactory the company
,   would change it.
Aid.  Ball    suggested    that   the
'   question should be left to the light
committee so that they.- could call
r a meeting and report'"at the next
<   general meeting of Ihe council.
Aid. Rowcliffe considered.that it
,   was practically, useless to quibble
oyerthe installation, but the mayor
'   was of the' opinion  that it" was
better to have the matter thoroughly
, gone into and thrashed out, as there
" ■ would likely be a day of of recon-
ing at the end of this council's term
." and it would be better to have the
j   matter looked up and  the  details
of the contract studied. ' - " , '
He stated that .'Mr. Smith had
•. shown how some" of' Mr. .^Peek's
", suggestions at alterations were use-
' less, and that in a number of cases
I   the plant was no better pff after the
alteration than before, ,-t  .   A     j
. Aid. Cox considered that the
. opinion so stated .was only one
-   engineer's against - another's   and
that little attention Mcovild be^paid
1   to it.     Inspector   Peck's' report,
howevei, was a long time coming
to hand.
At this juncture it was decided
to hand the affair into the hands
of the light committee for report.
Mr.'J. J7H. Middleton attended
and presented a> petition largely
signed by,residents and bwners of
land 'on Ellice street and Doyle
avenue, petititioning the ..council to
have some arc lamps placed down
the respective streets.
- The' mayor stated that the plant
was carrying its fullest capacity on
the' arc lamp" system, but: he considered the" streets in question were
badly in need of lighting/' There
was a light outside the power house
which might be removed and a
smaller-one put in its place. He
-would suggest that, if possible, this
light should be placed at the corner of Causton avenue and Water
street. He was not quite sure if
the arc system was carrying 24 or
25 lights/but.if it was 24 there
would be a possibility of lighting
Water with one arc lamp.
- It was suggested' that several of
the arc lamps had been placed in
positions where there were no
houses, and . that some of these
might be'remoyed:       ._' A
The mayoYassured'Mr. Middle-
ton, that the matter would be,looked, into, and'if a change was possible it would be,made.7 If'how-
ever-M_t.'was>7 found impossible to
place arc lights, incandescent lamps
would be fixed along thes-streets.- l
. Messrs: Mcyris and Todd attended to -ask that the council would
take some steps to have the person
or persons arrested who had been
placing notices upon the buildings
and sending literature through the
post"of an illegal and defamatory
character. <■" . 7 "^/
^ The mayor, stated that "already
steps, ' had been taken to find the
culprit, and that the matter had
also been taken up ,by thepostal
, - There was some discussion as to
the account bf -Mr. Raymer for
work' at the power house, which
had been left in the harids of Aid.
Aid. Rowcliffe said he had done
all he could to get an understanding in the matter. .He' agreed that
for the work done the charges
seemed excessive, but that the
amount of time charged had been
put in by a workman of Mr. Raymer's, and. had been paid for by
the latter.
Aid. Ball suggested that it would

get a settlement from Mr. Raymer
for the amounts due to the city for
water, license, and light, which
were being withheld pending settlement. It was accordingly agreed
that the account be paid as presented.
The following accounts were
then referred to the finance committee to be paid if found correct:

A long discussion ensued * as to
the advisability of leaving meters in
unoccupied houses, as there was a
shortage of meters at the present
time. It was decided that in order
to save complications, the Light
committee should order removal of
the meter.from Mr. Glenn's house
during the time it is unoccupied,
and. that it should be connected
again should the house become
occupied.    «>
Aid. Ball reported that he had
had a conversation with Chief
Hidson, and had been informed
that the Chief was so busy that he
no time to collect road and dog
taxes.' Mention-was made oi the -
25 per cent, commission that was
given for collecting last year, it being considered that he paid someone to do the collecting for him.
Mention was made that the chief
was well enough paid, not to ask
for the 25 per cent, tlfte year, it was-
only given him in view of a raise
>in salary and that he should be in-
•formed that his position <\$jps based
upon whether he collected the
taxes or not. Mention was again
made of his time being taken up
to which the mayor replied that he
considered the chief had lots of
time on his hands. It was decided
to call .a meeting of the Police
Commissioners on Friday, Dec. 10,
at 9 p.m., to discuss this and other
business.        . ''
By-laws Nos. 67 and 68, being
Local Improvement by-laws, were
read a second and third time.
Aid Cox reported that the
scavengei was finding it hard work
emptying his closed wagon during
the cold weather, and that Jie
should be supplied with an open
wagon. ^* y   \
Mayor DeHart considered that
the frost would not last over- two
or three days at the most, -but
suggested that arrangements coulj$
be made", whereby Mr. Mills could
use some galvanized iron used in
laying down the'water system. One
of these could be made: to fit the,
wagon, and would suit the work. :.
Aid. Ball considered that the'
council should help the scavenger-
out to the extent of allovying' him
lo use the iron in question.   77,
A long discussion. ensued as v tp
"whether the account from the Vancouver Engineering Works*"--for

Aid. Ball suggested that it would
be as" well to get Mr Ashbiidge to

of any jar occurring Jiere. 7 He did
not agree with paying the acount

Building nicely painted inside and
put, and comfortably furnished
with chairs, etc. He thought the
money for the purpose could
^nsily be raised in the district.
The meeting then took up ihc
ucstion of forming into a local
improvement district. Dr. Baker,
.Mr. J. B. Brown, Mr. C. H. Leathley
^spoke on the subject, all being ver}
much in favor of incorporating.
The points mentioned in favor of
such a step being that a larger
amount of the taxes already raised
in the district could be used in the
district; that matters of vital importance to the district were being
projected, such as electric railroads,
electric light,-etc., and the best interests of the people could only bo
'safeguarded through a counc.l.
The feeling of the meeting seem-
to be in favor of immediate action,
and C H. Leathley an'd D. E. Mc
Donald were requested to go into
the matter and call another meeting.
The desirability of forming an
association, of the fruit-growers of
the district was then introduced,
and whilst it was felt that nothing
could be done just at that time,
the idea was warmly applauded,
and Mr S. Sproul and Mr. Goodrich were appointed to take the
matter up and arrange for a meeting, in Januaty.

a large number of residents in the
district were present to consider
the disposal, of the old sclicoi
house, and to discuss the advisability of incorporating. into a district municipality.
Mr. C.'H. Leathley presided and
explained the object of tho meeting, when Mr. J. B. Brown, on behalf of those who had subscribed
towards and built the old school
house, said they would be willing
to .hand building over for public
use if the same was .properly
looked after and placed at or near
the McDonald's corner.
Reminiscenses of the old clays
were indulged in by some of the
old-timers present, and a motion
was formally carried accepting the
building on the terms named, and
thanking the. donators for their
generosity and public-spiritedness
in handing the building over foi
the' use of the residents.
Mr. D. E. McDonald then made
an offer of a free site for the.build-
ing, his only stipulation being that
the building should be well cnied
for, and not allowed to be misused
in any way. This offer was warmly appreciated by those present
and was'accepted by motion.
Three trustees, Dr. Baker, Mr. J.
B. Brown, and Mr. McDonald were

The night was dark.the hour was

the gate. Within the house the inmates sat, till Mrs Goodrich said
"What's- that!" She opened the
door, they all trooped in, with many
a shout and a merry grin. Said one
"We have not come to stay, but to

Dr." Baker «aid that as one of the

And some of the roads in. and
around the district show the need
the formation of a'local improvement board. ' r _   -
commissioners, sat last Wednesday
morning for the purpose of considering the renewal of the licenses
of the three hotels in town.
Chief Hidson, in giving his report, said he had received several
complaints recently about the number of drunk and disorderly persons
who were causing disturbances on
the streets, and. put the reason
down to the bar-tenders supplying
liquor to persons already in a half
intoxicated condition. As far as
the proprietors themselves were
concerned, they could hardly be
called to account for this, as in
every case where he had had
trouble in this respect, he had
found the proprietors unwilling to
have drunken people on their
Some trouble had been experienced recently at the'Lake View
Hotel with reference to a fight between the bar-tender and a customer. Mr. Bowes had in consequence discharged the bar-tender
and engaged another. The new
man he considered well up to his
business and satisfactory.
He asked the hotel proprietors
present to aid him in his work of
keeping the peace. He had often
reminded the bar-tenders that intoxicated persons could not be
served, yet'although he had never
actually seen .this law being violated by any of the hotels, fromrthe
state of persons he had seen on
the street he was sure it was being
done. He asked the proprietors
inform their bar-tenders that if intoxicated persons were served they
would stand a chance of being
" pulled " for it, and would possibly
lose their jobs. *   "       •      "
Taking the hotels as a whole,
said the chief, they were very decently run, and if the proprietors
would see that their help enforced
the rule with respect to intoxicated
persons, he did not think much
complaint would be heard from
the outside.
Complaints of loss'of money by
drunken people were frequent, but
the police had their suspicions as
to who were responsible for the
thefts, and these men were also
being watched' by the hotel proprietors.
The Mayor asked the'proprietors
if they had any question to put
before the meeting.
Both Mr. Bowes and Mr. Pea-
body expressed their satisfaction
with the license commissioners.
Mr. Bowes, however, complained
of the verandah outside the Royal
Hotel, and the number of drunken
persons who congregated there.
He did not wish to injure the new
proprietors, but considered that
the verandah waa an injustice to
him and an injury to his business.
Mayor DeHart stated that for the
benefit of the commissioners, he
would mention that up to June or
July everything was satisfactory.
The present council did not enforce
the by-law with respect to early
closing which had been drawn up
by the old council, it being decided
that the hotels could carry on their
business as before. The proprietors were at the same time warned
not to serve intoxicated persons
with liquor. A comparison showed that in the first three months of
1909 with two hotels, 28 or 29
arrests were' made, while in the
first three months of this year only
nine arrests were made. After a
time carelessness set in and drunkenness increased, and a fresh warning had to be sent. The nuisance
again abated somewhat until last
month, which was the worst record
received by the city council.
In mentioning the Club, the
mayor said that better order had
been kept there this year than last,
and that the amount of drunkenness in that direction had material;
ly decreased., He pointed out that
the'majority of persons who got
drunk were fellow'who came into
town with a' few dollars to " blow
Dr.  Boyce   recommended   that-
a continuance of the license should
be granted to the Lake. View and
Palace Hotels, and that the Royal
should be allowed   to make their
application      He pointe     out -to
Messrs..Dunk & Lavigne, the new
proprietors of the latter, that they -
had   not  complied   with   the law/
and   that  ar.   application   should
have been made7 to the police commissioners   in" ' writing   ■ fourteen
days before the commissioners sal.
It was  decided  that'.the   formal"
application should go forward, at
once, and that the commissioners'*
should sit again on December23id.
The  motion   of Dr. Boyce; was
carried and the'sitting adjourned. -

The minds of the public as
well as the columns of the
newspapers have been filled of
late with questions relative to
the establishing of a Canadian
Navy. England, however,
almost laughs at the scheme.
In more than one place has the
word 'toy-navy* been used, and
now it seems that the general
idea abroad is that Canada does
not possess the materials, the
builders or the men capable of
manning the ships that are to
be built.
It was not so very long ago
that arrangements were practically completed for the building
of a large dry-dock at Montreal
and now, according to reports,
the proposal is tabooed, and
a suggestion brought forward
in its place that the ships should
be built in England.
The time at which the naval
question was brought very
forcibly upon the Canadian
Government was when Australia made ' her magnificent
offer one Dreadnought to aid
the naval defence of the home
land at a time when England
was simply quaking in her
shoes that some foreign power
would come over and invade
the island. Canada was expected to follow and offer
another, but did not do so,
preferring to organize a fleet of
her own, ready to help the
mother country, should she be
attacked by some foreign power.
The turn that matters have
now taken, by the attempt to
make it appear that the Canadian Government are adverse
to the opinion that something
should be done in the matter
of naval defence is erroneous.
At the Colonial Conference
of   1902   the   policy   of   the
Government was   declared in
terms which shows  that  then
the .Government were willing
to deal with the matter of naval
~—defence" in^the^same-spirit-ae
they propose doing at present.
Canada, in being loyal to the
mother country is also loyal to
\ herself, and just because some
large movers in the ship-build-
1 ing trade "over the other side of
th'e water consider the  ships
; should be built by them in their
<_ocks,,and others consider that
a '* Dreadnought   should   have
been given, the first of a series
of kicks is received   by the
authorities here, and obstacles
placed ih the, way of building
that should never be., Canada,
however, is confident that she
• "can "produce as   good  if not
/better iriateriftl over , her own
side, finoSher own artisans and
also a crew to  man the ships
" /when completed, without look-
- ing either to England for help,
I or -Australia for advice upon the
question.      This, . of    course,
< does-not look good to the ship-
-   builder over the other side of
' the Atlantic.   -■"
* By keeping' to her present
, policy/Canada' -is fulfilling her
/duty to England as far as naval

Dr. Anrews, of Summerland, who
was on his way home, accompanied by his bride, stopped off at
Brandon and registered at the
Imperial hotel. During a brief
absence from her room, Mrs. Andrews' purse, containing about $20
in bills, had disappeared, and
though a very thorough
search was made, no trace could
be found of it. The matter was
placed in the hands of the police,
but with very little ground on which
to work.
Armstrong has just organized a

A splendid time was experienced
on Tuesday, November 30th, by
all who were fortunate enough to'
be present. The singing was
excellent, and the best of good
humor prevailed throughout the
entertainment. Short anecdotes
and comic songs were indulged in,
besides a choice selection of vocal
and instrumental music. Mr.
Whitaker ahly presided at the
organ, besides taking part in several duets and a solo. Mr. Whit-
taker is possessed of a rich, power-

Mr. Hall, our own " Harry," who is
well known to all lovers of a good

platform is eagerly looked for and
his songs thoroughly enjoyed. Mr.
Bartley sang a comic song which
was much appreciated, and Mr.

' Brigand8-at Hammersmith.
An artificial sensation at Hammersmith'
in order to secure a dramatic cinematograph film produced some real excitement
—an accident and a hospital case. At
the side of the Thames, by Upper Mall,
some cinematograph operator*) were engaged picture making. There was a scene
being arranged in which bold, bad brigands
played a part*; and, after a raid, were attacked and had to get away in boats. To
produce'the effect of shots falling into the
rivei, an explosive was used to disturb the
water and make the necessary splashes.
Several men were engaged in the work,
and dressed in brigands' costume. The
play was interesting enough and all went
well until the brigands were attacked.
Just as one of them, Robert Ludgate, of
Angles road, * Streatham, was- striking for
freedom in a boat, the explosive came
too near, and the boat was upset. Ludgate
besides getting a drenching, had his right'
leg broken.

to notice the blaze, promptly rang their
bell to alarm their" town.' The damage

Moisture; in Soils and
its Conservation.
"Points for Irrigators.
v <y
, ,\^hil«5, irrigation has been practiced for many centuries in some
of the older 'countries, the conservation of irrigation waters has not
been given any serious attention
until the demands put upon the
supplies' have 'shown the imperative heeds for a greater duty to be
performed by. the .waters available.
With the expansion of irrigated
areas, and with the development
of fruit interests, there is a cty fon
every hand formore water. . However, in many instances—in fact, in
most instances—the available supply ia ample for areas covered by a
given ditch where the water is
used properly. And the problem
really becomes one of how little
irrigation water to use instead of
how much; 7;   •-;:■••       ';.v_.,;;
The fruit-growers in the irrigated
sections can learn much about the
handling of water by studying the
work of the dry farmers, whose
crops must be produced solely, by
the scanty rainfall their soil secures.
Of particular-intei est to the fruitgrower as well as to the dry farmer
is the fact as much as 95.6 p.c.
of the precipitation during the
winter months may, under some
conditions, be stored up in the
upper eight feet of irrigated land ;
while of the maximum serjes a
total 'of' 82.13,. jjer cent, was thus
stored." Investigations go to prove
that the drier the soil is in the fall
the greater will be the amount of
the precipitation that will be taken
lip" by" tKe soil in the winter. But
where the soil contained a relative-
large "per centage of water in the
fall a less quantity'was found in'
the spring;' , While .this appears as
a loss of ^water from the soil ,it is
only because; of readjustment of
the water film due to saturation.
From the4,investigation it was determined'that" the- soil-contained
17.5 per cent, of water for saturation under field conditions, and
the winter precipitations were
passed to a level below eight feet.
A large number of determinations
were made which show conclusively that as much as 5.5 of the winter
precipitations will reach the soil
to* eight feet below  the surface.
The determinations go. to .show,
however, "that when soils in the
fall are nearly saturated, there is
less 'vater in the eight foot level
the following spring. This is accounted for by the fact that the
water undoubtedly passes to still
lower levels.
While fall plowing did not show
any  greater  increase in moisture
over spring-plowed  land,   it   undoubtedly, conserves ,the moisture
at levels below eight feet.   By winter irrigation it is possible to store
up   quantities   of water to be used
eady   in'the   next   spring'season.
However, Dr. Widtsoe (an expert
on fruit land culture and irrigation)
sounds the warning not to " apply
so   much  water  as to further the
water-logging of the  land."'   This
is one of the great dangers of winter irrigation, or of the use of too
much  irrigation  water,  and   it  is
pointed out that as the lower levels
become  filled   with   water,   often,
even to the  surface of the soil, it ■
brings about the rise of alkali with '
its many unpleasant complications.
" The   amount   of   water that may
be stored safely in a soil depends t
upon the water capacity of the soil,
the   depth   to   which   the sucking
roots   are   felt, the   distance to an
impervious soil layer, and the cli-'
matic and cultural conditions pre-'
vailing on the farm.    If the farmer
has some idea of these conditions,
as he  should have, an knows further  the   approximate   amount  of
water  he  is  using,  it  shoul -   be
possible   to   avoid   the   disastrous
results that follow the water-logging
of agricultural soils in an arid dis-1
trie..       The   haphazard   methods I
still in vogue can only lead to disastrous results."
Far too many irrigated orchards
are  given very much more water
than they need, and the conserv-1
ation   of   the   winter precipitation
would largely reduce the amount of'
irrigation   water  necessary.     The j
statements   -which-- Dr.   V/idtsoe
makes about water-logging of soils
are  especially  important since so'
many orchard sections have been
ruined by the increasing alkalinity -
of the soil.—The Fruil-Gwvoer.

Widby has sent a direct appeal for help
thi'ough the medium of a bottle message,
but there are no directions at to what
island th* unfortunate man is marooned
on,, and unless friends of his are able to
give some information as to his last known
position and intentions it will not be possible to trace him. The message was
picked up by a Vancouver fisherman, but
the locality where the bottle is found is
not considered to have any bearing as to

Town Springs" Up in Sixtij Dags./
Another new town has sprung up in the
west. Eight weeks ago the townsite of
Kindersley, Sask., was sold by the Canadian
Northern Railway Company. Immediately
between 300 and 400 persons populated
the place. A board bf trade with a charter membership'numbering 23 was organized. A main street -was graded, a steam-
heated hotel was erected, lumber yards
established, and now, within but 60 days,
200 buildings stand as a' nucleus to a possible city of thousands. Kindersley is essentially an agricultural centre. It is a
divisional point on the C. N. R.t and as a
terminal has the usual round house and
repair shop facilities. *It is on the Goose
Lake branch, between Saskatoon and Calgary.^ The ^election of civic officers will be

Too Hard on the Chinese.
Toronto' Police Commissioners have ide-

the proprietors of Chinese restaurants in
refusing licenses where white pirls were
employed. It was pointed out tnat several
eating houses in the city under the management of Chinamen were patronized almost exclusively by a good class of white
customers; consequently, in*1 future, the
police will recommend the granting of
licenses after inspecting the premises for
which the privilege is requested.

Horses Lost Through Bating
■    Wheat. "
i .
"■ Henry Ball, a farmer living about four
miles south of Grenfell, Sask., met,with a
very heavy loss in horses a few da>a ago.
Some horses in pawing had loosened a
board of the granary at some distance
from the house and had eaten all they
wanted of the wheat. 'A little colt was
the first to show signs of illness, and its
life was saved with the greatest difficulty.
Later others became ill and within six
hours a mare and five colts, from one to
three years old were all dead. .Others are
still ill but will probably recover.
Collision at.MooseJato.,   -..
,. The recent storm and blizzard are directly responsible > for one of the worst
wrecks ever recorded on the Moose Jaw
section of the C P.R., and which resulted
in the. death of two stockmen, Oliver and
Bolton, and serious injuries to engineer
Corbin and brakesman Healey. A stock
train, which consisted of thirty cars and a
caboose, was on the.jnam.line a( Pasqual,
when a freight coming west ran into the
tail end of the stock train. The snowstorm which was raging at the time made
it impossible for' the engineer to see the
lights on the caboose. The caboose and
cars' were reduced to matchwood, and
twenty-five head of steers killed.'

The clean, he.'ity camaraderie existing between the men and women

so because it is so unconsciously genuine It would '_■' Ciite iiiifoss.bii

_ Unmarked Graces.
' A remarkable story is told by John
Munroe, ■ who <• has just ^ come in • from
superintending the erection of the Gordon
Pulpwood Conmpany's mills at Goose
Lake.. He says that a place-near there is
a burying'graund in'which -are placed in
unmarked graves the bodies of forry.onr
men who have been killed in railway construction work, and whose names have not
been-, learned by the company. He added
that so me'had been interred in coffins, and
some without, and even without, religious
service of any kind. To the illicit sale of
whiskey Mr. Munroe attributes nearly all
the> accidents.
"r A   ";'Beer and Murder.
A wh.skey;drinker will commit murder
only .under the"direct excitement of liquor;
a beer drinker is capable of doing it in
cold blood, Jjohg observation has assured
us that a large "proportion of murderers,
deliberately planned and executed without
passion of rfiilice, Vith no other motive than
the -tocquiz&tion' of property or'money,
dften of tifling, value, are • perpetrated by
beer1 drinkers.
T^We believe, further, that the hereditery
evils of beer drinking exceed those proceed-
inghtom ardent spirits—first, because the
habit is constant,' and withbut paroxysmal
interr\iption,-wliichradmits of some recuperation t secondly, because beer drinking ib
practiced by'both attxea mOre 'generally
than spirit drinking'. and, thirdly, because
the animalictng tendency is more generally
transmitted.—Pacific Medical Journal.
How   to   Prepare   the   Stuffing

In oidi- io make sweet scented pillows,  first of all   th    pillow   .lu ug
must be well dried    Luy'the leaves nu

Sire ready to stuff the pillow.*-  Take
enough raw cotton'to rill one-half-of
the pillow, tear it in small pieces ,and
lay it in a big pan and dry it out well

dried flowers and le.ivc's, fill up -.the

As for the coveis, choose'something
'distinctive and individual. A little
fpillow of rose le.ives. and lemon ver-

Jwith a little roseb-id stenciled on it, is
3most unusu.il and charming.
For a hop pillow choose a linen
cover of dull gieen and embroider
your monogram in mercerized cotton
exactly the same tone in one corner.
The cover for <i pine pillow might
well be of lough  tan crash or linen
with a stenciled pattern of-green and
'brown on it, or else,  with  a smart
-monogram—block   lettei s—embroider-
' ed in brown in one corner.
.   Fern leaf pillows should be covered
'with creamy linen, rather heavy   in
''quality,  with  green  fern leaves em-
.broidered or stenciled upon it.  Make
the cover m_thf li.-'n of two squares,
considerably l.iger than the pillow,
' and   work   long   buttonholed   eyelets
through both,   lacing   them together
over the pillow with a ribbon of dull
.green.   At the corner where the ribbon ties slip two or three big green
beads on loops and ends
To cover pillows a cover of the pop-
"ular Russian crash in cool gray would
^be appropriate, and if it is stenciled
-lightly with butterflies or dragon flies
.-it will add to its daintiness, or 'it
?-might be embroidered in small, flat
/squares in rose colored cotton.
S* The flower perfumed pillows will be
"'found useful for' the afternoon on
i lounges in the hammock Slip them
<under your head,,und they will perfume* your hair with just a touch of
delicate fragrance. ■ -   _

try the hop or the pine pillow—they
-will help you to sleep if > nothing else

JohUnn Peter Hebel, the German

cue 'to the word weisc (wise), he
said: ".The snow iR white. Now,

answer, 'Snow white I"

The Opera House was   filled to
, its utmost capacity  last  night,' the
occasion   being the. production of
As You Like It, by the C.P.Walker
, Co of Winnipeg.
] Despite the nnmber o,f years
Shakespeare's plays have been placed before the play-going public
they still receive 'undying support,
more especially when given by
a company like the ne that occupied the boards last night.,
The plot of the play is too well
known to require any comment,
which leaves only the scenery,
dresses, and acting to be criticized
The scenery was without doubt
the best yet put upon the stage .of
the Opera House, and this very
fact added taste and refinement to
the general production. *
- The dresses, many' of which did
service in Mr W. S. Willard.s elaborate production of .The Cardinal
in London. England, cost many hun
dred dollars, and, served in good
keeping with the time of the playi
For the actors, each took their
part in a praiseworthy manner more
especially-Mr Yule/who ' filled j* the
part of Touchstone to" perfection.
