 c*  Vol.5.���������No. 51.  .-REVELSTOKE. WEST KOOTENAY/ B.C., APEIL 8, 1899.  $2.00 a Year.  L> i  J '  IMMla^lUW.  THE, week's entertainment  was a -sure sign  of' the limit   of   the  lenten  season. ' Joy was unconfiiied throughout,'as  many  engagement*  being  crowded in as the week could comfortably carry.     ,  llii? actors deserve cobsidi.rable  piais,  The fiisi affair was tbe annual dinner and concert of lbe Mrlliotlist  chiii-ch,ladies on Easter Monday. ' h  was most enjoyable. The dinner''was  good ancl evei y attention' w.is paid to  guest--. The programme, afterwards,  was.' nicely, rendered and note was  .made liy many of the .duel by Mi--,  /Lawrence and Mbs Sorley. It ojiened  with an anthem by the choir, then an  instrumental duet by Mis. McGregor  and Mis-. Savage, and followed in its  turn by a solo by-Mrs. Dent. Mis.  Lawrence and Miss Savage next gave  their duet, which'was encoted,^niul S.  Saunders added- a good number" in a  clarionet solo.' "Principal Sullivan's  song was well received, indeed, and so,  "j^TvaTthe duet by Mr.-. Jeffs and  her sister,- Miss .Coi'ieirf^int*-quartet  byMesdauiesbc-n'tand Jackson, Messrs  Barber and'Sullivan was thoroughly  enjoyed and given in very'good style.  Mr. Meldrum'ssolo was splendid: he  has a very even,-rich  voice,  and his  encore'  was  <���������  \     thoroughly   -. enjoyed.  Another anthem by the choir brought  a very plea-stint evening to'a close.     (  The next day, Tuesday,   bi ought'the  musical  and dramatic   entertainment  .under, the auspices, of the" Revelsluke  CilyjB.ind; it vvaslooked forward to with  interest on account of tlie, excellent  programme prejiared by llie" baud and  because the ,wi-ll Known , Dtaniatic  Club" were billed to put on 'a three act  comedy-dtama   entitled    "A "Russian  -Honeymoon," and all were interested  in seeing cmt'the ambitious, 'attempt.  It is u-a.il for the critic in small places  to cover amateur theatricals" with a  mantle of, superlative   adjectives, kto  -applaud ' with   lavish  band 1 everyone,  -concerned from ris^ to fall' of curtain;  but in the case of "A Russian Honeymoon" there is really no occasion for  the,exercise of critical/charity as the  play, / considering 'its weight and  necessity,,for  spectacular  effect,   was  ' well put onand the parts well filled.  -Ivtin and Kmdikotf appeared to be,"to  the manner born:" the first "full of  wise saws,"  the   other, "beard.-d " like  "thepard"-and proud of his "splendid  servitude:" Ivan recognizing with the  'cuteness of the old stager that lie personated, tli.u he'liad'-'eougliton" with  with the audience,, early indulged in  side play lo the slight  injury ofiother  ' priiicipi'ls, but thoroughly excusable,  neverlbe less iti'tbe interests of fun,  Koulikoff, too, got a little more out of  '- his excellent* part than there was in it,  but unlike Ivan, who wa- c-o:iiie, he in-  chnedio the ecp.ally valuable dramatic  effec'-..   Tlieiis   were  pillar-pai tt, and  1 largely carried'the play to Ihe big success it was. Michelincbs w.is a very  nicely filled p.ut, unaffected and  plainly interpi t-ted. as became it, and  given ������i iiioi--' rustic \oiic would be  perfect. Poleska wa������ a capital character .ml weil taken. The digmly  pei-iain'm.-, to a count es-, "c.din'd,  cribb'd, confisi'd," wjlhin a- peasant's  hut and foiced to toil by a supersensitive husband anxious lo cuib her  spirit and   whimsically' test   her   love  ��������� thereby was very difficult of  poitrayal  offering an   opportunity   for 'SjiirtLed  acting that was well essayed. Baroness  Vladimir, the cynical society  woman,  was well attempted asul^ her entrance  in the third  act,1- the othe>-  principals  having all been seen, is very  well, contrived.    She evinced, just a  tittle too  much interest, in   the romance  of the  play foi-su:-b a vol ary of  thc pleasure  world,,but cither.-. i*.e was  true   to the  part.    In Alexis Petrov itch,   howeu-r,  there   is   a   weak   spot   in   the   play.  Deject, d and almost lachrymose in his  whimsical   love   test/it  is   h.od    to  sympathi-e with him though  bis love  he ever so sincere cu- his  thoughts immaculate.    "None  but the brave deserve the fnii" and if my lady is   wilful  the.masterfnl spiiit ot a I-Mruchio (as  advised by Ivan  who knows tbe sex)  would be more populai than thatul  a  "lover    sighing  like  furnace,   with  a  woeful   ballad   made   to   hi-  mi-ties-'  eve-brow.     While   so   iniic-b     of   Ihe  plot   has   to    b.u   conveyd    tliiough  tbe part of Alexis the character would  he all the better for a rougher intei pi e-  tntion as it "is so  hard  to sympathise  with   a   melancholy hero.    The   very  difficult  role  'was    thoroughly    well  tilled. Osip.'ind'other peasants, gttatds,  etc., were very appropriately costumed,  the music and choruses were  splendid,  and the scenic work of Messrs.   Wells  and Crage was very inuc-li admiied by  ��������� the obsetViUit.   Tbe play, as said before,   w������8   thoroughly enjoyable nnd  for the pluck they showed in taking  up such a large undertaking aiid the  *meril exhibit in biinging it oil"'so' successfully. It would be a pity to -top  with one evening's eutei tainment and  if it could <bt- arianged rtlie troupe  might very successfully c-ai ry it to  Kamloops 'and Rowland. Jl'he veiy  much improved uiu-ie of Ihe baud, Ihe  singing of Mr.'S. Saunders, (he violin  playing of Master Mnlbew-i and piano  accompaniments by Mrs. McCarter all  des?rve a passing, tribute. An impromptu dance clpsed the evenings  iiniusei'neut appropi ialely.  , On Thursday, Mr. and .Mrs. II. N.  Coursier dined'Re velstoke'sinayor'and  council at their residence on Piont  street.,, The dinner was a most enjoyable one of five courses, followed hy  coffee, cigars aiid cards, the tlyee O's.  The arrangements of tlie dinner table  'were very .pretty, it being' dressed  with those1 "infants ot lbe'spring,"  lilyof the .valley and 'daffodil*.. " The  menus, each bearing its holder's name  in gilt, were artistfc-ally hand painted  to match the table decorations by the  hostess herself, and form' very pretty  souvenirs of the occasion of our council's, first , social- function. Il is, of  course, unnecessary testate Ihat, every,  arrangement, was made by, the host  and hostess to ensure the comforts of  their guests and the pleasant company dispersed expressing- r.-gtets. at  thu conclusion ot such a .plea-ant evening.

Culled From tlie Last Report of Pcst-  master General.

Revels!okci's combined total  of gross revenue'is only exceeded by  tli.it, of Victoria, Vancouver, llossland,  Nelson, New Westminster, Natiiuio  and Kaslo. It exceeds that of Kamloops Sandon, Traill, Vernon, Fin't  Steele and other plates. Twenty-one  new money order unices were opened  in British Columbia during the yeai;  3-50 in the * whole ' Dominion. The*  amount of open accounts in the post-  office savings bank totals $31,430,0:17.-  77 (the largest on iecotd), the avctage  amount of each account being 92(2.47.  The iucieased value of postage stamps  issued was $8,012.99 over lS'Ji,, .md bathe year ending June, 1S97, o.crthe  preceding year it was $-1.52,703.17.

The application of Dr.  C:<)--������.es medical health officer vmis  read, and on i.iolion of Aid. Biovvh,  seconded Ald.'Mi-Kecbnic*, the application w.is accepted. <  Public- opinion appears lo be inclined  to the; view that in this,. a& in applications for other office?, it should be  open lo competition, and that is evidently the idea of Sec. 47 of the muni-  ciptl clauses act, which slates that "in  everv election by the council for a  municipal officer, or officeis, the voting shall be by bollot." There ;ue  ii)iii'f> duelers than lawyers' in Rtdvel-  stoke, yet applications were asked foi  city solicitor. Why not for* health  officer. '    ,  '    Still Another Wedding.

Wlvle then* is yet, but little news of  a definite character on which to base  a "rush," Ibere is every, reason to l)e-  lieve, ,011 tbe'worJs of men who have  gone into that country, that Lit is gold  bearing 'and mmrtalized and Ibis is  lm ther borne nut by the fads of the  rh^ Bend jil.icer excitement of '(X5,  when gold was found in neatly all the  'creeks fiom Revelstoke to Canoe river.  The chief stiii.es then centering about  French, McCulIoch and other creeks  combined vyith other circumstances  confined the hiterc*-t to the streams  this side of Canoe river mouth, but  had not the excitement been diveited  toolliet fields*, it is quite probable that  Chose north of it iii the neighborhood  of the piesent leported strike would  not have waited till now for exploitation, c While it is impossible to comment upon the richness or extent of  this'stiike, information-, being limited  to the finding of gold in one shaft, and  the staking of'about twenty claims,,  there is every reason ' to think it genuine; in view of tbe fact that numerous j),irtic*s have gone and, are going  to tbe scene of the discoveries, it is  wise for the'people of Revelstoke to  be alive to the importance of its route ,  i.upri.i-able. .From Edmonton the dts-  tince'is about -15) miles, 'with stock  feeding opportunities; from Revelstoke  steamers can cut the 190 odd miles in  half, and the country over the last  half is the same as from Edmonton:  fiom Kiimlonps too, the~ distance is  about.210'miles, mostly parking. The  only other- direct water route in coin-  petition is that via Beaver, and that is  not half i-o practicable, to judge from  reports*-, for steamer navigation; Mr*.  Gamble in his report on the navigability of the Coluiiibia some .time ago  gives figures which go far topioye the  difference. By his-baronieter 'reading!;  the total fall from from Beaver to Canoe river, some 03 miles,"-is (519 feet,  vvbile'from Canoe river to Revelstoke, i  some 100 odd miles, the fall is only  about half of that, being 370 feet.  Steamers ply every summer on (he  lower half , of the Revelstoke route  and'of1 the upper half Mr. Gamble  says "there are no seriou**- obstacles to  navigation, by a powerful stern wheel  steamer.." , ' l  In view of the interest taken in the  matter, the fol'owing table ,of distances by Mr. Lee, iP.'v L.

Tete Jamie Cache is distant from,  Revelstoke but 194 miles by water; by  land about 174 miles. The water'route  b a most, suitable one for navigation  hy'steamboats and vyith (he C. P.

Fron Canoe river mouth  row boits can be Uak.m upstream  quite a distance, lhey say even over  'he big log j.iin, so lb������ distance of  this new excitement from Revelstoke  is not. to lie counted,by miles exactly  as most, of it may be done wilhout  jvteking.' The Canoe river valley pre-'  sents, however, every inducementifor  roiidinak'iru, there being a big acreage  of 'iuniiillnr.il lancls throughout it  and ihe iC-limate is" such as to olier  excellent oji.ioi-Ui-iities for laising  stock; then, loo, a wagon road would  reduce the disi.iuc hy 20 miles. 'Of  the climate .,t Gn vvs i.-ipids, soiiie 22  miles <from' mouth of Canoc>, R. H.  Lee, P. L. S., say-: '*! am, informed  by Me������sr-.

Again at Trail Crossing.'about 20 miles  from the Cache: "At this point the  bushes and timber indicate a light  snowfall, and I am informed by Mr.  Joseph Neill, ol S. Thomjison river,  who was with n C. P. R. suivey pirty  through this country in 1871-75, that  they wintered their stock heie and  never had over eight to ten inches of  snow. I think the climate is very  similar to l!.i< around Kamloops,  judging-from the general appearance  of the country.  From almost every point of view  Revelstoke ha*, got advantages of con-,  ncction with Tete Jaime Cache which  n'liist'. be pushed into prominence  should thii 'excitement materialize  into anything, and that,   with nearly  all the coutiuent gold -.teking, it) pot  A Good Send Off.

Glassford  has for  the past tvvo'years ably discharged the  duties  as   pastor of the,Presbyterian  church, and during his short residence'  in Trail   has  made many .varrn admir- '  ers, who, wish him every success in his  nevvi field.    As   a   token   of tbe. high  esteem   in   which .Mrs.- Glassford is  held, her friends presented her with a  neat little purse of  S50.    The   household   effects   were  sold  at public auction Wednesday afternoon.    As vet a  successor   to   Rev. glassford 'has nob  been chosen.'   'On   the   night   of then-  leaving the citizens turned out, headed,  by   tbe band, ar.d gave them a hparty  send-off, emphasized still further by an  address1" by   Col.   Tapping,   who presented the'Rev..4Glassford with a well ���������  filled purse.  A Commendable Movement.  For the past few weeks several of  the local business men have been considering the advisability or inaugurating an', early-closing movement  wiih a weekly half-holiday combined,  and tbe project has been warmly taken,  up by many of Revelstoke'.s ladies,  always ready to assist in ' any good  work. Tbe" Outlook is consequently  very favorable for the introduction of  this reform and it only needs th.? co-���������  operation of the parties interested to  secure its early operation. Half past  six is suggested as a suitable closing  hour and a day in tbe middle of ^ tbe  veek would pei Imps be best for* tbe  half-holiday. The employers and  clerks might meet and suggest a suitable day and then the thing would be  settled/ The scheme has been tried  elsewhere nnd proved a success.  "Johnny" O'-Drien, of, Kamloops,  came up from the south Wednesday  afternoon and stopped for a .day in  Revelstoke.  The Presbyteiian church choir is  now one of the/institutions of Revelstoke.

The  advertiser of today therefore has over two  centuries of experience in this direction  upon which he may draw. It is not at  all strange, then, that modern advertising  should bu developed into not only an  ordinary business, but in some cases into  an artistic science, for it is a science to  be ablo to attract tho attention of thc public in a pleasing way, and many uniqud'  ,and startling advertisements havo been  the result of tho high intelligence and energy of the American merchant aud advertiser. ' It would perhaps be interesting to  note a few of the ways in which these men  have from timer to time tried to attract  tho public notice.   '  ' Tlio reader may remember how Father  Knickerbocker's ���������'History of Xevv York"  (���������Washington Irving) was first introduced  to the public. ^It is a good illustration of  tho genius and originality of thu American advertiser. ���������  Ono day, there appeared in one, of thc  dnily papers in lar^o typo an mlvertiB,c-  ment which rend something like this:  MISSING���������Shoi t, stout man, broad brimmed  lint, liKlit laioo bic-cclies, mtlic-r eccentric,  culls himself Father Knickerbocker. Lust m-oii  nt Astor House two days uyo. Any infill motion rc-;--ari.lius him will bo guitofully icc-eivcd  Address box till, thi-5 pupcr.  This advertisenient appeared every day  for some time, und people began to wonder and ask among themselves who this  Fa! her Knickerbocker could ' be. Wild  rumors wore circulated of an immense  fortuno that was waiting for him, and an,  enterprising newspaper came out with tlio  statement that ho hail been discovered,  drowned in lho East river. Letters o/ inquiry poured into box 3H of the paper  which issued the advertisement, but not  ono of these received an answer.  In thc midst of the excitement there appeared in still larger lypo in tho sanio  paper this advertisement: '   -  DISCOVERED���������A bug belonging to Father  Knickerbocker, Hie- lr.issing man. Tho bug  contained n letter mid a manuscript; the let  ter explains that the innnusciipl is a "Hi.tory  of Now Yoih," which Father Knickerbocker  wishes to have published as soon as ho lias departed to parts unknown. TIioj manusciipt is  now in course of publication and will bo is  sued in a short time.    * b  " .-  , The book was then advertised in thel  regular way. Of course when people began to sco through the. hoax, they naturally felt rather cheap, especially tho paper  which had printed the East river drowning incident, ibut tho "object of tho publisher had been attained. lie had got tho  people talking. ' It is needless to say that'  the bookjiail a ready sale.   '  '*  It is usually,a clever piece of advertising  of tho indirect kind like tho above that  brings thc largest returns.     , i.  Ono very clever, schemo of advertising  was that accomplished by a ' celebrated  pencil Arm which has largo'cedar mills in1  Florida. This concern sent a shipload of  superb 'oranges 'to New York from its  -plantation. Each orange wns wrapped in  ^issuc paper   upon   which was printed,  '."This orange was-gioiviv on a Florida  plantation whero thc cedar is produced for  tho Co. pejicils.!'    Largo numbers of  theso oranges were packed in small baskets, each holding'half a dozen oranges,,  and then sent to all sbrts of people.-" The  president and his cabinet, tho United  States senators nnd.'nicmbers Jbf tho rsu-  * prcmc court each received a basket. , They  were11 also sent to all tho great men and,  women of every profession, including  singers, actors,' authors, ministers, lawyers, bankers aud editors of largo papers.  The last named class probably did moro  'for tho companythan any'of'the others  by tho highly complimentary press notices  'which appeared' scon after in  their respective papers.       u  America is far ahead of European countries in thc matter of advertising. Newspaper circles in Paris not long ago wera  electrified . by an i advertisement of an  American patent' medicine company  which appeared in one of their journals  for which 17,500 francs,.($3,500) had been  paid. No such price had ever beforo been  paid in Franco for, an advertisement, and  tho concern was looked upon as a company  of "merchant adventurers."  One of tho most novel feats of 'advertising in recent years was that accomplished  by two young men not long ago. They  wero sent out by a largo concern in New  York, which provided them with plenty of  - money and instructed th'eni to paint signs  Wherever American travel was most frequent all over.Kuropo. They returned in  about two years anil a half: In that time  they used about six tons of paint and S10,-  000. A large portion of tho latter had been  t spent for'space privileges      Theso   two  'young men had been in nearly every coun-  , try in Europe and painted signs on the  side walls .of, largo buildings in London,  Paris, Berlin, Rome, Constantinople, otc  They wont through thc Alps, painting-  thcir signs in letters 20 feet high on the  sidcs'of some of the great cliffs which tower over tho roads and paths through thoso  grand mountains' .Tust'imaglnoan Anier-,  lean traveler, far away from   New York,  ��������� in tho heart-of tho Swiss mountains, who  should suddenly sco ahead of him, painted*  on the side of a mountain, one ol   those  old   familiar   trademarks ,of    America,  "Tjs0 ."    It would certainly leave a  deep impression "upon his mind, which  would last until he returned to America  So they went on, painting signs everywhere They aro accredited with having  painted a large number on thc ryrar.!d3  of Egypt They even tried,-it is said, lo  get the sultan to allow "them, to put iheir  sighs on the wall of his palace, but lliis  ho did not allow them to do, strange to  say. However, they contented thomsclves  with signs on some of the Mohammedan  liioviuos in Constantinople.    The young  ' men said they had better yueccss in Constantinople than anywhere else for .the  Moslem' is a lover of bright colors, and thc  big red, blue and yellow signs scorned to  please him. Ono old follow came out and  begged them to put a sign ou tho front of  his dwelling. Ho seemed to consider it  quito a decoration.  Sometimes when wo aro in a poetical  frame of mind wo become perhaps somewhat irritated by the advertisements  which one sees put up every w here, perhaps spoiling the beauty of a landscape or  making a city hideous with many staring  posters. But when wc remember that  each of those signs represents some great  Industryt which in turn is one of the  financial pillars of our great nation, and  that same industry has been developed by  the modern advertisement, then the great  gaudy signs wear quite a different aspect  to H8.���������William M.
