The following interesting article,  sent us by a, .correspondent at Hilo,  Hawaii, , is' supposed to be, one of tbe  greatest acts of moral courage ever  performed:��������� ���������   j  In tlie year 18?4 there lived on tlie  Island of Hawaii,   of   the   Sandwidli  group,  a ehieftess  named  Ka.piola.jji,  who, before her conversion to Christianity, was very intemperate and dissolute,  but finally became an example nf virtue  and piety,to her countrywomen.   In  December of that year she determined  to break   the spell   of  the, belief   in  " Pele," goddess of the Volcano. _. In  spite of the strenuous opposition of her  husband and friends, she  made a journey  of  150  miles   from   Kealakekua  (where Captain Cook lost his life) to  Hilo, visiting the crater of Kileaua in  order to defy  "Pele" and  to prove to  ,her people that no such  being existed..  As she neared the volcano she was met  by the priestess of TPele, who warned  her  aiid predicted. her death   if   she  violated the tabus of the goddess.        i  RAW  FURS  tn  1-  3  a  6"l  t  o  C3   *-i  CO  ���������S3  O  '    Z  "������W   '4  >  <  ts  V-,  u.

"One in whom the goddess dwells,"  replied the priestess. r     ,  The'priestess was finally silenced by  Kapiolani," who quoted , passages eif  Scripture setting forth' the character  and power of the true Grid. The  priestess confessing that . that "ICe-  akua," the deity, had left her, Kapiolani then went forward to the eratfer  and remained the night.' Tin the morning she and' her company descended  500 feet to the Black Ledge, and there,  in full view of the grand and. terrific  action of the inner crater, she ate the  sacredcbcrrics (obelo) consecrated to tbe  goddess and threw stones into the fiery  lake, saying: "Jehovah is my God;  He kindles these fires; I fear not Pele.  If I perish by her anger, then serve  Pele; but if I trust in Jehovah and  die preserves me'" when breaking her  tabus, then you may' serve and fear  Hint alone."        ,   , '  RAW  FURS.  ^*    - 0  ' KF* Write for Circular.,  A.

Christmas- Eve, forty-one.persons  were burned to death' and sixteen  badly injured, five of whom'will die.  A large crowd had assembled in Uhrist-  Uiiiii Bros.' hall to attend the Christmas  tree festival. While the festivities  were at their height, someone climbed  on a bench from which to get a better  view of what was going ou. , In doing  so his head struck a lamp hanging  from the ceiling,.overturning it. The  oil immediately caught fire and everything being of a dry and inflammable  nature, the room was soon a mass of  flames. Someone shouted : " Shut the  door and keep quiet; it can be put  out." By this time the confusion was  so great that people began scrambling  in a wild endeavor to reach the door.  Women and children were trampled  under foot and as there was only one  exit to the hall, and the fire being  between the crowd aud the door, many  rushed headlong into the flames.  The room was crowded, there .being  probably 125 people present. The  lamp which caused the disaster was an  'extra large Rochester, and held about  two gallons of oil. West of the building was a smalt powder and oil house,  distant about thirty feet. A messenger  on the way to Lakeview heard an explosion, which was probably ' the  powder and oil house near, the hall. It  is thought several- were killed by the  explosion.  Those dead are mostly women t>and  children who were unable to help  themselves. It is asserted, by a man  well acquainted in Silver Lake that  several persons in attendance at the  Christmas tree were under the influence of liquor.  , How to Make Tea Properly.  The following directions for brewing  a first-class cup'of tea, free from tannin,  may be of use to pur lady readers. Of  course, a great deal depends upon the  quality of the tea, but that must be  left to the ladies themselves:  1.' The. water to be boiled, should he  fresh and pure, and as soft as procurable. ,,,  2. It should be boiled in a perfectly  clean kettle and not deemed to be boiling until the water throbs and throws  off steam in profusion.  3. First' make the teapot hot, then  pour into it the freshly-boiled water,,  after this strew the tea otutop of-the  water when it will giadually sink. In  this way the tea leaves will not be  scalded and the fragrance will be. kept  at its best. The watei- should be used  as soon as it boils, and not allowed to  become flat by over-boiling.  4. Maximum time of infusion to'be  yve hiinutes.  5. The infusion (not' decotion) should  be decanted into another teapot, first  made hot for its "reception. ^Prepared  in this way' (if a- ," cosy " is used) tea  will   remain   hot  aud   pleasant   and  wholesome for .more than double the'  * " %*���������  time, it would were cold ttapots- employed. = 4  Gi Treat the spent tea-leaves as so  much poison. '      >   u  The New Westminster Bishopric.  ' n 1  A special meeting of the syuodof the  Chinch of England for the diocese of  New Westminster has been convened  for Wednesday, Feburary 20th, 1895.  The business of the synod will be to  elect a bishop for the diocese, the Rev.'  Herbert Biuney, upon whom the choice  fell at the ��������� last special session, haying  finally declined to accept the appointment. The synod will ^meet in St.  Leonard's Hall, New Westminster,  after the usual celebration of the holy  communion in Holy Trinity cathedral:  Celebrating Christmas in Missouri.  St. Louis enjoyed a high old time ���������on  Christmas Day,-worthy of the scenes  witnessed in the old frontier days.  On Christmas Day there were no less  than two murders, over thirty cases of  cutting, shooting and 1 robbing, and  .innumerable cases of assault of more  or less seriousness.

The British empire, says the Forum,  isa political creation unparalleled in the  world's history, not only by its extent  and population, in both which respects it is slightly surpassed by China,  but because, with an area of more than  10,000,000 square miles and with 352,-  000,000 inhabitants, it is scattered over  the whole globe." It embraces all zones,  and from the icy wilderness of Hudson  Bay to the tropical jungles of India  and the mahogany forests of Honduras,  there , is scarcely a product which.a  British province does not bring forth  in excellent quality; and not less various are the degrees of civilization of  its inhabitants*, from, the Kaffirs at the  cape to the highly cultured citizens of  Toronto or Sydney. Besides Christians  of all confessions the.re are 200,000,001)  Hindus, about 70,000,000 Mahomme-  dans, aud 8.000,000 Bhuddists; and the  Bible is printed in 130 languages and  dialects- represented in the empire, yet,  notwithstanding Mich promiscuous elements, the government, with rare exception--, m.-u'ntains order, and no sign  of dissolution i.s visible.  Destitute Nebraskans.  The terrible stories of starvation and  privation in Nebraska beiug published  in the daily papers are confirmed by  people who have visited the famiue-  stricken region. The drouth of last  summer destroyed the crops in the  greater part of the state, and now  famine stretches its gaunt hand over  the district, which was deserted by all  those who could get away before,  winter set in. The other states are  responding generously to the call for  relief.  TO PROTECT GAME.  A .Society   Organized   at  Kamloops.  There Should be One Here.  A largly-attended meeting was held  at Kamloops last week for the purpose  of forming a game protection association. Mayor Lee presided and Mr. R.  Mackay Fripp, secretary of the Vancouver Game Protection Association,  addressed the meeting at length, dealing with tins enforcement of the game  laws.- He pointed out that tho Game  Act does not debar Indians ��������� from  slaughtering'a great deal of game needlessly. He said that this was the only  game country where the killing of  game is allowed during the rutting  season. He thought,, the black -bear  should be considered as game, on account of its. fur-bearing-qualities, and  should be. protected during-May, June  and July.  ���������Mr. W.-H. Whittaker-thought an  association of this kind would-be very  beneficial, and showed how destructive  the hunting of big game by the  Indians .was. He advised pressing the  Dominion Government for favorable  legislation as regards Indians, for the  protection of big garue.  Mr. Mar-pole told of a shooting party  which in the Okanagan '.had killed 42  deer and 5 sheep, among'which were  several does and lambs. The trophies  were taken across the line. He suggested the. appointment of wardens iu  every part of the country, and thought  November- 15th late enough for the  close of the season for shooting largo  game.  Aid: Furrer said Indians should not  he allowed to shoot for the market,  nor have any more privileges than tho  whites. f  Dr. Lambert lecommended that the  opinion of those versed in the habits of  game animals be obtained, with a view  to change legislation to be of the most  practical use. ,  '      * - C ������ r-  1 Those present then enrolled themselves as the Inland Game Protection  Society, to be' atiiliated with- the Vancouver association. It was thought  tliitt thiyfee need n'ot^xceed $1 a year.  The officers chosen for the:, ensuing  year were: President, R. Mar-pole;'  vice-president, AV. H. Whittaker;  treasurer, T. W. Lambert; secretary,  J. J. Carment; committee, J"." R.'HUIl,  F. J. Fultp_n,' JG. H. Jones, F. Rushton,  \V. ,11. Peagrant, W. J. Roper and R.  E. Smith. '  o-  Such a society would no doubt be of  gre.it use-in Revelstoke, - as it is well  known that a great deal of game is  needlessly slaughtered iu this district,  both in season aud out of season, and  if the game laws are not soon altered  so as to prevent the depredations pf  the Colvillo and other Indians West  Kootenay will no longer be known as  a game country.  -SIGNAL TRIUMPHS WON  U    By Dr. .Price's-Cream Baking Powder.  Two signal triumphs havo been-  achieved Iiy Dr. Price s Cream Baking  Powder. First, it received ��������� Highest  Award and Diploma at the World's  Columbian Exposition of 1S03. Next  it secured Highest Award and Gold  Medal-at the California Midwinter  Fair of 18)1. At both Fairs it surpassed all competitors in, every respect.  The, award, in each instance, was for  strongest leavening power, perfect  purity and general excellence. ��������� It was  sustained; by the unanimous vote of  thejudges. <*  The victory at Chicago establishes  the supremacy of Dr. Price's as " The  Foremost Baking Powder in the  World." The .triumph at Han Francisco confirms and emphasises it.  Another Proposed Railway.  Four citizens of Kaslo���������Messrs. John  L. Retallack,' G. O. Buchanan, Hamil-,  ton Byers and John Keen���������have given  notice of their intention to apply for a  private bill to incorporate a company  to construct a railway from Kaslo to  Four Mile Creek," by way of Bear Lake,  Three Forks and Sandon. From what  we know of the projectors there is  every likelihood of the railway becoming an accomplished fact, provided  the price of silver takes an upward  trend.  Close of Navigation on the St. Lawrence.  At twelve o'clock on Monday the last  of the Richelieu Company's steamers,  nochelagii and Longueuil, went into  winter quarters. This closes navigation' for the year 1801. Last year navigation closed on December 5.  Awarded  Highest Honors���������World's   Fair  MOST PERFECT  MADE.  A pure Crape Cream of Tartar Powder.

Winnipeg Commercial Bank.  On Monday last the creditors of the  defunct Commercial Bank were- paid  a-dividend of 10 per cent. * This makes  a ,total of 27, per cent, now ��������� paid the  creditors, or a sum of nearly $848,000.  The greatest papers in Great Britain  .and the United States freely acknowledge, the wonderful mei it of the  Family Herald and Weekly Star,  Montreal.' The Family Herald is a  great newspaper and a great family  paper, bul, it is more, than that, it is  one of the gi en I est authorities in the  ..world on chc'se, butter, general dairying and general fai niing. How a progressive, np-io-dale farmer can do  without the Finn ify Herald and Weekly Star oi jM.iiitieal is, indeed, hard to  understand.  Typhoid Bacteria From Raw Oysters.  A curious case of typhoid beiug transmitted by raw oysters comes to lijind,  from Middlotown. Conn. It appe.irri  that at 1111 initiation "supper at the  Wesleyan College in that town raw  ojrster8 wore-served, ni)dv over 30 per ���������  cent, of the pr.ndents who ate of thiMii -  were afflicted with tho disease, and in-  /���������  vestigation showed that the oysters,  though they were from Long Island  sound, had been placed in a fre:-h water ''  creek to feed. A private sewer from  a house where there v.-ere two cases of  typhoid emptied into the creek, and  the oysters - absorbed the bacteria.  Professor Caiin, a celebrated, bacteriologist, has devoted a great deal���������of  attention, to the matter, and tiio discovery is -regarded as a remarkable one  by those interested, in problems of sani- n  tation.      ���������" , '      L    '  ,To Miners and Prospectors.  ,,  _. ,  It.

TllE Nelson Tribune claims  to give
its readers nothing hut accurate information, and only last \��eek jumped on
the coast  papers  for still  calling the
Sloean  Times the  Kaslo Times.     Bul
in the same issue it publishes,, a grave
blunder which  is   likely   to' do   some
��� harm   to  a young gold-producing district.    It says the output of gold from
the   Lardeau   for    1SIJI    amount:-,   to
��1,000.^ The Tribune could  not have
obtained   iU information from oliiciai
sources, as.it would hardly, have risked
its reputation for veracity by publishing what it knew to be   untrue.    The
books bf  the Government Agent here
show that the amount   of  gold   taken"
from   the   Lai dean  during - ISO 1   w.is
'��3,870.    It   is   also   well known  that
this  does   not  repte.sent 'much   more
than half the real quantity taken out,
as   there   were numerous   .small   finds
which never came to the knowledge of
tho Government officials, nnd therefore
were not included in the above Itguies.
The Lardeau produced close on ^7,000
���worth of gold in 1894.    The gold output' from   15igS Rend  (Revelstoke district) cannot   be accurately given for
the same reason.    While the Tribune
is such a stickler for accuracy in other
papers it should make an eilort to tako
the   mote   from  its   own  eye   before
pointing to tho beam in its neighbor's.

was a l.uge and appi eoiativ o one, folio ring the various fe.il tires of the play
with keen interest and entering heartily into the laughable bits presented,
in the faice "Should this meet tbe eye"
the minor cliaiactors v.ere certainly
��ecn lo better advantage than the
principal ones. 0. TE. Shaw, as '���Skinflint," gave, perhaps- the best representation in the c.tst, while li. Syder made
the be-.!, possible'of ,his short p.irt as
".Nabbem." Ivliss Sw.mton's "Polly"
was fairly well rendered, mid Missel.
Valentino as ".Maud1' showed very
considerable ability. S. Hammond, as
"Lionel Long," hardly did so well as
might have been expected from his
,d;amatic record at Donald. F. G. Colston, as "Teddy," played the part of
the versatile Irishman well, butsliuie,
his brogue was not in id at all, at all.
W. F. Ciagc, as "Lambkin Louder,"
was not mi lo his usual form'and appeared rather ill at ease. Probably
this is to be aoco'iiited'for by iiio fact
ol Ins not being "made up" ior the
part. Taking the piece as n whole,
however, it-was creditably put on.
During the interlude JWi-s.' H. A.
Brown gave a capital rendering of' the
song "Whisper Softly.'" A b.t'njo duel
by Guy Barber and Herbert Lewis w.i-*
accorded an encore, and Fred Allen's
pianoforte selection was given in ver1'
, , V 4^ -
'lino style.
When the curtain wont' up on the
comedy, "'J'ite Young "Widow," a pr etl y
little maid was disclosed dusting ihe
chairs in Miss Fairlove'o p.irlor. This
was "Lucy"' (.Miss Stella IJrown), who
did her part equal to the best or then..
TTdrs. Crage had a somewhat dil'iicuit
part in "Aurelia F.-tiilovc," ,buc tlie
naturalness she displayed in her presentment of it was noticeable, and as
the little officer she looked it eveiy
inch, 'fhe energetic and emotional
acting displayed by F. 0. Cotton wa.-.
worthy of a bigger role than that.ni
the jealous and eccentric "Alaiide*. ilie.'"
Although it can hardly be said that
the part was'overdone, yet it wad very
evident that the actor extemporised a
great many things that weio ," not-dii
the book." \Y. K. Ci age >-i*em��d ,to be
quite at home in the char,.tier ol
" Splash," and gave the audic-ueo
something to laugh at by his jj.ii.tiut

il.Jl.S. Blenhfim, wilh the body of
the late Sir John Thompson'on bo.-nd,
arrived at Halifax on New Year's
morning, .iiid steamed opposite the
York redoubt before tlie fhst minute
gun announced her approach Io the
thou.sai'd** who had been waiting along
the watei" fiont under a steady torrent
of lain from e.uly morning. As the
\ ess.*] passed up, the haibor Forts
Yoik, Nackabbs and Georges in turn
fired minute guns. She came to anchor oil' the Gun wharf exactly at noon,
fhii Admiralty orders being lo istrike
Ilalifnx on January 1st .it mid-day,
and in oi'der to carry out this to the
letler Captain Poe had to reduce the
.speed oi the ship, and --ho could easily
have made fhe voyage in ie-,.-, than live
days. The Canadian Jack was flying
at half-mast on the foremast and the
white ensign half way down the main.
Two steamers immediately put oil' to
the Blenheim, find the Rev. Dr, Murphy and Father TMoriai-ty recited the
Libera and .*iccoiii]*aii3'iiig prayers, in
the iiioi tuary chamber, the two sons of
the deceased premier being present.
Afterwards those who went,out to
tb.e Blenheim, were admitted to the
mortuary clumber, and1'were met .it
the doot -i,y Senator .Stanford, who had
come from J'.iigbind with the remains,
is *.epic-renting trie Canadian Govorn-
ini'iic. On tiie loot of the coffin was
her Majesty's wreath with a caid in
her own handwriting.
Ai 1 ��0 the imperial transport-Lily
left for tiio Blenheim with, several
members of the cabinet on board.
After they had viewed the chamber
and casket ten  sailors bore the coffin
4, -   - t
up ihe companiouway to. the quarter
deck, where the assembly .uul all hands
mu-tored at the bugle c.-'ll. The casket,
followed by bluejacket's bearing Her
Majesty's wreath, w;'s placed under
the davits, the ropes and tackle ot
which wore covered wilh black material.
In the meantime, a detachment of
marines, under Capt. Saumare/., was
drawn up on the transput t. Liiy. At,
the moment the command' to salute
vvas given by Capt. Poe, tiio coffin was
swung.oft' the davits, llie Blenheim's
band common- od the Dead .March and
the'first gun of ihe royal salute boomed
out from tho sucljo.ird two-inch quick-
iiiir.g Uotchkiss gun. - At tho same
Jame tho marines on the Liiv piesoiitcd
arms and every head on the Blenheim
was bared. On arriving at the ordnance' wharf the ten siilors' placed
trie'coffin on the gun carriage in wailing and the procession started, headed
by the band ol the King's regiment,
follow "ri by Lieut.-Gcuei.il Moore, .stair

LOCAL ITEMS.  , Bourne Bro.'a are about to' add  several new scenes and wings to the  fetage liftings'in their hall.,  The, resuscitated Calgary Herald is  again on our exchange list. May it become a power in Alberta's capital.  Silver has fluctuated a'few points up  and down this week, and now stands  at 59| cents, per oz.  The repairsboing done to the Revelstoke bridge'will postpone the necessity for a new one at least three years.  In what respect does the Revelstoke  fire hall resemble the isthmus of Panama ?���������Before long both .of them will  contain an (H)old ditch.  - Owing to the intense cold and the. influence of the holidays our .staff has  been very small this week, and we  mus-t ask our readers' forbearance.  Officer Graham left for Kamloops to-  1 day .with a prisoner he brought up fi om'  down   river    charged    with   sending  threatening letters.-  Jim Townsend and Dan Mediae left  here to-day on snowidioes for Big Bend.  The latter is going to work on McFar-  land's claim on Gold .Stream.  We understand that ,a circulating  library will soon be inaugurated at the  station, with headquarters at, the drug  store,   y  Why i.s the fireball window likcthe  doorway of Hull Bro.'.*��������� butcher shop?  ���������Because both have a bigo wood row  blocking their light.- ''    ���������*'  ' A long-felt want has just been supplied at the freight sheds, the C.P.K.  having just completed a 73 ft. platform,  and the loading, of vehicles is now a  much easier task than formerly.  The annual meeting of the Revelstoke  Printing and Publishing Co., ( which  was called for Wednesday last, was  postponed. Future notice will give tlie  date. ���������������  - Church of England'services w.ili be  held in thei. school house to-morrow  morning at il o'clocki and evening at  7-30, Rev. Field Tolland, of Ashcroft,  officiating.' ,       > ��������� ,  The ' Liberals of  Saskatchewan  ��������� Bitter Cold Weather.  are  strongly .desirous'  that   Mr.   Laurier  '��������� should represent them in the Dominion  Parliament.'    There are several  constituencies in a like mind. ���������  The 'Dramatic society met with a  piece of ill luck this week.' Mr. Cotton,  one of the members, sold 'about $14  worth of tickets and sent the money to  Mr. Crag'e at the station by the mail  carrier," who, instead of delivering it,  placed the parcel' in the mail car, and  nothing has been seen of it since.  Among those who dropped into i-own  cm New, Year's Day was Tom Ileid,  who is supplying refreshment-for man  and beast iit Reid's Hotel, -situated on  the sleigh road between the Wigwam  and Bannock Point., Mr. Reid says  nearly the, whole population of Hall's  Landing is off visiting, but he expects  there will be quite an irtflux'of settlers  th'e'coming spring.  Skating has been good-for the past  wt*t*k,.awl gitjat numbers of young  people "have beism" noticed "skimming"  o'er the ice-on the other side of the  rivei .?��������� Oii Now Year's- Day a party of  you up men', went two miles up river,"  v, crossing at7|th(i.bigeddy,*and oii'Thurs-  ,day chi-re was ii very large turnout, in-  cludii.g several young ladies. - The  snow which has been f.'illing 'since  Thursday night has put a stop to that  healthy.pastime.  "Harry1 Connacher' proprietor of .the,  Kootenay' House, "Golden, died tliere  on Sunday morning, and was buried  on New dear's" Day. Deceased was  well known along the C.P.R. maih.liiie,  -and up to a few months ago appeared  to be in robust health, weighing  probably 200 lbs. After an attack of  fever he "went U) California to recuperate, but'came back two or three weeks  ago not very much beuetited by his  trip, although for a day or two- after  the home-coining he seemed to brighten  up ; but the-disease had developed into  galloping consumption, and he sank  very rapidly. He was a brother of Mrs.  K. IX Ilu uie," of Salmon Arm, iind of  "Jim-" Connacher, of the C.P.R.  From everywhere come reports of  the severe cold experienced during the  past week. In New,*York, according  to official records, last Monday was the  coldest day ever krrown .in that city,  the thermometer dropping , to seven  degrees below zero. Sixteen below  was reported from Northfield, Vermont, while from all parts of the States  reports of unnatural cold have been  received at the weather bureau.  Near Regina, N.W.T., last Saturday  morning, the house of Wm. Thompson,'  a farmer, was burned,to the ground.  His wife 'and one child were badly  burned, arid another child was burned  to death. Thompson got out of the  house in safety, but in a perfectly nude  state, with the thermometer nearly 10  degrees below zero, lie started for a  neighbor's house over a mile away in  order to get help, but was frozen' to  death. Mrs. Thompson died on New  Year'.sDay.  Atlantic steamships arriving at New  York report terrific gales, accompanied  by heavy seas and intense cold. The  decks and ' hulls were coated' with ice  several inches-, thick. The crews suffered 'greatly from the cold, and the  task of getting about the decks was  difficult and dangerous.  The cold wave was very destructive  in Florida. The oranges on the tree's  rwere frozen solid, and it is said that  there is not a sound box'of oranges iii  the State. Peas, tomatoes and other  vegetables are* ruined. Despatches  f i om the east coast say that the pineapple crop is destro3red. 'It is estimated  that there were over 2,500,000 boxes of  oranges on the trees and that 2,000,000  of them are* a'total loss. The young  orange groves are, reported to ' be  ruined, but the old , trees may pull,  through. , The loss is estimated at  $2,000,000. The cold, weather , is more'  disastrous than it was in 1886.  Nearer homo the cold has been bitter  and it is several years since the Koote-  uay country.experienced such a long-  continued bpell .of icy weather. ' At  Donald the' thermometer has .ranged  from 10 to 28 below zero, and a rancher  living a few' miles' down river from  Revelstoke,says 20 degrees below were  registered at his place -ou Sunday  morning. , , ''  In the towu itself the lowest point  noticed was about six below, but it is  stated that it went much lower" than  this during,tho night. Fortunately  there was no . wind during the coldest  days (Sunday , and -.Monday), but on  Tuesday and '"Wednesday there was a  stiff breeze coming down the valley of,  the Columbia "from the north, which;  while the cold had greatly moderated,-  was very cutting 'and-uiicomfortablc.  The ainount.'of snow on the ground  ia very light for this time of year, and  a   good   heavy    snowfall    would    be  welcomed as a harbinger of w'armer  weather.  On Thursday morning the thermometer at' Vlie station dropped to 20  degrees below zero, but on Thursday  night snow began to fall and the  weather to moderate. To-day the  mercury is several degrees above zero.  WHAT IS A MORTGAGE?  A   BATHER    INTERESTING   BUSINESS  QUESTION   DISCUSSED.  Two Small Fires.  f.The "chemical engine was called out  to-afire on .Sunday morning, but the  intense cold had frozen the water in  the cylinder and no chemicals could be  thrown on the blaze, which was in the,  roof of Mr. Carr's tailor shop, on Front  street. The stovepipe had set tire to  the ceiling inside, and the roof was  burning when help came. A liberal  use of snow arid as much water as  could be obtained soon extinguished  the-blaze. ��������� '  - On Mondayevening'the chimney of  Wall Chong. caught fire, and at one  time it looked as if there was going to  be a conflagration, but speedy exertion  on the part of Deputy-Constable Vick-  ersan'd others put an end to���������the blaze  before it had time to grow into dangerous proportions.  "Necktie" Social.  A "necktie" social was held in the  Presbyterian church ou New Year's  Eve, when between 40 and 50 young  people."spoilt a plesant time in various  games while, the old year was expiring.  A great deal of fun was caused at the  disparity between some of the "partners" who drew neckties of the same  pattern and color, a small youth and a  tall lady'beiiig mated, while the portly  form of our genial butcher was noticed  in attendance on tho tiniest of our little  folk. Refreshments were served before  the old year gave up the ghost, and  while some went homo others stayed  to welcome in tin: Now Year.  Traffic Between Revelstoke and Sloean.  Traffic on the sleigh  road  from  the.  .Wigwam  to  Bannock 'Point,   Arrow  biilieftniiy now  be said   to  be'in full  swing, and the  number of teams  employed carrying  ore and merchandise  between   those   points  is    being  augmented   daily.      The   Lytton, having  a scow in tow, is making regular trips  from Nakusp  to  Bannock  Point with  ore from  the  Sloean  mines.    This i.s  brought   to   the   Wigwam by sleighs  and loaded on'the cars for  its destination.   Some 50 or CO tons were left at  Bannock   Point  by   the  Lytton   last  Sunday, when she was unable to reach  the Wigwam, and she has been adding  to this every trip,  so that there  is a  respectable, quantity  waiting  for the  sleighs.      This,  of course,   will  mean  extra expense  for the   railroad  company,1 as they have not increased their  freight rates ; but they will endeavor  to retain the Sloean ore traffic, even if  the  loss   continues   all   winter.     Mr.  Brewster, station agent, went down to  Bannock Point yesterday to make arrangements for the speedy hauling of  the ore lying there.  fleveistoko Printing & Publishing  lany, Ltd.

The,employees of  the Nakusp ic Sloean Ry. aie alleged to  be some .$70,000 in arrears of pay and  no money forthcoming-to meet these  demands. They threaten, it is said, to  put a lien on the road. The road was  to have boon taken over from the contractors by the C.P.R. on Monday, but  it is not known if this was done. Parties arriving from Kootenay say the  position of the unpaid employees is  serious',  and  they threaten  trouble.���������  CoUunbian.   *   New Year's Honors.

When a man comes home and tells a  woman   that he   has   been obliged to  mortgage, farm'or home,   there creeps  ii.'.c her  heart   a   vacuo,   imdofmable,  aching uneasiness which would speedily  d vi-lop itself into ahorror could she but  r. .-.ii^e all tno heartaches and miseries.  t: e bitter disappointments and sleepless  vi .ils which that dreadful word   "ir.ort-  f. :ge"  implies.
