One of the most enjoyable  receptions ever held at Fort Steele  was tendered to "Captain Parker  and the recruits for  the  Strathcona Horse" on Thursday  evening.     The ilicmb'M's of   ijj,.   Fort  Steele' Brass   Band,   generously  gave the use  of  their   new   hall  for the reception, also their services.      Although  but   a   short  time  was  given  to arrange the  programme,  it    was   perfection;  there   ' were    songs,    choruses,  recitations, speeches  and   dancing, and the boys  speak   in   the  highest terms  of  the   reception  accorded them.    Tt, was an  occa  sion" long    to   be   remembered.  The  programme  was ' a. louathy  one,   and    those    taking     [tart  entered into the spirit of Ihe occasion.   Hon.cR. L. T. Galbraith  was  chairman   of  the   meeting.  He   made  a   few   felicitious   remarks, and then the band gave a  selection,   followed   by  a , song  from C, R. McKeown,   this   was  enthusiastically received, and an  encore demanded. The "Soldiers  of  the  Queen"' was  given by a  chorus tofj the  Fort Steele Glee  Club,   the  solos  beingerendercd  by    Messrs.   McKeown,    Rlwell  and Nelson.    Mrs. Gilpin recited  Kiplings    poem     ������'Bobs"   in  a  spirited manner, il is doubtful if  it over  was recited belter.    A.  C.

Captain Parker after  repeated calls, came 'forward  and made a few remarks', and  was cheered to, the echo. He  afterwards ��� remarked, that he  had rather been on the firing  line, than attoni'ptingjo make a  speech.  Mrs. "Gilpin then rendered  Kipling's poem, thc absent-minded beggar", in a manner that not  only touched the pearls' 'of the  audience but their pockets "also.  Li is conceded'that this was one  of the most pleasant features of  the programme.  The first part was concluded  with a very able speech by Mr.  .1. A. Hai;vey. and a solo and  chorus by the Glee Club. "Tenting On The Old Camp Ground",  the solos being rendered by  Mesdames McBride and Corsan.  and Miss Watson.  The marching of the recruits  to the inspiring noles of the bagpipes., played by T\fr. Smith was  one of-the features of the evening, the flaying- of the old Scottish airs eliciting intense enthusiasm. Supper being served, the  floor was cleared for dancing,  which continued until a late  hour  The men one and all speak in  the highest terms of the reception accorded them. One man  said "The hearts ol the Fort  Steele people are in the niihl  place". Another remarked that  he had only one kick coming, j  and thai was "that the ladies of  Fort Steele; would not loi the  boys be wali-llowers:" Still another said Mrs. Gilpin in her  recitation ol "Bobs" conveyed  its meaning  fully.

If the English people had been  able to follow Wellington's tactics in the Peninsula as closely as  they have followed Buller's tactics in South Africa the'whole  nation would have died of heart  failure long before Napoleon was  conquered. Britain has .been  agonized by the telegraph, which  i.s the eyes and ears through  which modern nations see and  hear the losses and horrors of  wai. France would have,gone  crazy if that nation had been inflicted with a daily instalment of  the horrors of the ret real Iro'm  Moscow, and Kngiand would  have been scarcely less Irani ic  if the people, had been able lo  follow from day to day the story  of Wellington's long stay wilhin  Ihe linos of Torres Vedras,  Kimberley.  Kimberley is quite lively these  days owing to the fact that the  railway will be in lown in a few-  days. People from all parls of  the country are constantly arriving.
