The front of this store has changed again ; extensive alterations have been made  to enable us to improve the display of our wares. In all the changes we' have made  during the past ten years the living identity and individualism of this store has always  remained characteristically permanent, bold and striking. It is an outcome of our  policy. We believe in change. What progressive man doesn't ? The growth of our  city demands that its best stores must grow with it pari pctssu. We .change inside  methods, too. It is not all surface change with us. Ten years ago we wanted bigger  profits���������everybody did.    Some do still,    Our ideas on that score have changed.

The Boeis report heavy fighting at  Mafeking on Monday afternoon, one  Boer wounded,  Durban reports 3,000 Free State  Boers coming westwaid, destination  unknown.

An engagement occurred at Mooi  River yesterday, casualties on both  sides believed to be light. The Boers  retired. *",  London, Nov. 23.--The Daily News  has the following from Pietermaritzburg under date of Wednesday. Your  correspondent m-inaged to escape fi om  Mooi River district yesterday, befoie  the arrival of the six thousand Boers  who are looting farms in all dhections.  The Natal Boeis encouraged by the  success of the Transvaal Boeis join in  the looting. The main body of the  Boers made a rapid marcli from Uladi.  south west of Estcourt, to points near  Fort Nottingham, south of the railway  iu a bingie day. They are within forty  miles of Pietermaritzburg at the farthest, and it is thought that they intend to attack the town.  London, Nov. 23.���������The Daily Mail  says this morning? we are able'to confirm the report that ordeis have been  issued to mobilize the sixth division at  Aldershot for service in South Africa  or whenever it may be 1 equited.  ' London,-Nov. 23.��������� Although -it is  evident.that the situation in Natal is  again becoming alarming, nothing can  he officially ascertained to allay public  anxiety.or the curiosity still telt regarding' the disposition of the reinforcements recently landed at Durban.  ,Ooe coriespotident says that seven  thousand Buersjire within 25'iniles of  Ho wick Falls/iiear-PioteYmai-itzbui g."  and that the inhabitants aie ileeing to  the capital. Evidently a considerable  fence ot'thei enemy is novv within 40  miles of Pietermaritzburg, hut"1 it is  officially announced'from there that  no anxiety prevails..tho garrison mini  bering a thousand men with six guns.  Joubert's plan apparently was a daring  atiempt to defeat the British relieving  column from Durban in detail, while  still attempting to reduce L.idy-iuith,-  , A serious attack on the Mooi river  camp is now liom Iv expected with the  object of destroying the bridge at  Alcston. '  Durban, Nov. 22.���������Today's -engagement at Mooi river found the British  almost entirely on the defensive.* A  correspondent of tbe Natal Advertiser  says: The Boers' second shell fell  within a few yaids of the detachiiient  of British infantry, that il did little or  no damage, and that the firing continued for half an hour at intervals of  from three to four minutes. Accoid-  ing to this account the British troops  prepaied with the utmost promptitude and advanced under cover,  whenever possible. The'Biilish artillery was in position behind the  hotel wheie General Barton and his  staff were being accommodated.  Majoi'-Thorney-OrafU- atitLthe mounted  infantry moved to cover on the t idge on  the enemy's left flank, while tbe  Devonshire regiment and the Royal  Welsh Fusiliers occupied the trenches.  There was but little flre. The correspondent says the enemy possessed at,  least oue Howitzer with a* range of 5  miles, besides several six-pounders.,  -The Boers started to liombatcl Mooi  river this morning at 5 o'clock. Filing  continued up till 10 o'clock, but no  damage waw done.

The Natal Times reports during the  night an attack upon Ladysmith on  Sunday. Several Boer positions were  captured.  VANRHNSnimo. Nov. 21���������The Commander of thu rebels at Colesburg has  been a nested and will bu tried for  treason. -.  London, Nov. 23-Tho War Office  has leceived the following tiom Gen.  Forrester:  Gen. Methun nl tucked the enemy at  Belmont at daybicak this morning.  Tlie Boers occupied a btiong position  on thiee ridges, which vvete cairied in  succession, the last by bayonet. After  a heavy firo many horses and much  ammunition were captured. The  Gtenndier. Coldstream and Scots  Guards were engaged, manv of whose  officers sufleied from thc Boer sharp-  shoot eis.  Orange Rivkh. Nov. 23���������An engagement was stinted just above  Orange River .this uioining. The  British ai tiller y succeeded in forking  the enemy to roth e.  London. Nov. 21���������Before thu anxiety  {as to the situation in Natal has heen  I relieved, there comes news ot  a, gteat  battle  at  Belli.oul.     This   happened  I sooner than w.u expected.    Only the  oilicial account is to hand, but from so  much as can lie gittheied. tbe'fighting  appeals to have lieen almost a repetition or the battle at Elandslaagte. The  despatch of the previous day estimates  that the Boers in tliat vicinity numbered two thousand and they hnd five  guns, and judging from the absence  of any statement to the contrary in  the official despatch, it is believed that  the Bi itish were slightly superior in  numbers to the enemy. The Boers  had chosen a position with their custom iry skill and were strongly entrenched. The British were ohliged  toc.ury three ridges in succession.  Appnteiitly the Guards bore lbe brunt  in carrying the last ridge hy a bayonet  charge, after its defenders had been  shaken with -sharpnel., Nothing is  said as to whether the position thus  gained were held, and the destruction  of ammunition seems to indicate lhat  the contrary was the case. While  Gen. Methuen can he congratulated  upon his brilliant victory, it is again  vvith the cost of a heavy loss of ollicers  and men.  The situation in Natal remains oii-  seure. Fighting reported at both  Estcourt and Ladysiuith. It was at  first reported that heavy fit ine been  heard in the dii eetion of Willow  Grange leading to the belief that Gen.  Hililyiudli.nl mnde a soitie. Later  despatches announce that while a  sortie.from Ladysmitli vvas effected,  inflicting a demoralizing defeat upon  the Boers, it would be preinatine to  give full ' credence to either le-  port. What is , quite ceitain  is that the Ladysiuith, Ealcuiut  and Mooi river situations aie isolated.  The Boers seem ahlu after detaching  enough troops to hold three British  forces, aggregating 17,000 men, lo push  on towaids Pietermaiilzbui-g with  some 7,000 men.  A special despatch fiom Dm ban  announces lhat more big naval guns,  weie landed on Wednesday and  hurried to the front.  Cape Town, Nov. 23.���������The militai y  authorities have given permission tn  the Canadian contingent on its arrival  to march through tbe cily, which will  be beautifully decorated aiul the -day  vvill be observed as a holiday.  Orange River, Nov. 23.���������An engagement was started on the othei  side of Witteputs just above the  Orange river thib morning and the  British art illei y succeeded in forcing  the enemy to retire. The following is  the official despatch respecting it.  Artillery fit ing commenced at 4:45 a.m.  in the hills noith from the Oiange  rivet-nt'an estimated distanee of 12  miles.

Twenty years ago  the easter'.i slop

shone -S-hite,    while    all    around    lay
brown  groups of tbe men    who    had
done their best to get through to Johannesburg and* failed.  On th? slopes
above, hundreds    of irregular   horsemen, rough and unkempt, with slouch
hats    and    bandoliers, came    circling
around and winding to tho little farmhouse, on which the small white flag
fluttered in the breeeze.      Grouped in
front  of the building was a knot of
officers, the leaders of the expoOSHon.
with surrender writ large    on-   ever?
tacg.      At the head of the advancing
horde rode a burly figrtte  in  a .dirty
slouch hat,  stooping  in    ins    saddle,
unclean    and      unkempt,    everything
about him    betokening    neglect;    the
wretched looking,    ungroomed   horse,
the antiquated    saddlery,    the    rusty
steel, everything.      Yet ono could see
that his was the    master mind    tnat
was directing the hordes   which were
graduallv enveloping    the unfortunate
body of" men lying nt bis mercy..      It
was  Commandant  Cronje.      In  arro-
rant   truculent tones he dictated tlio
terms  of  surrender.      They were    at
h's morcv, but he dare not go as far
as be would like to havo gone. m
coarso. guttural invective he put forward his terms.' The small body.of
men, tired, hungry and thirsty, still
had their weapons in their hands, and
lie knew well that if he gave vent to
his feelings, which meant putting the
leaders with their backs to lbe wall
and shooting them, that he vvoulo find
it a vew dangerous game to play,
but it is doubtful if he would not
havo done it, but for the restraining
Influences around bim. He snarled
like a tiger deprived of bis legitimate
prey. They "were the accursed English whom he hated and whose portion was to be shot down like dogs.
But the influences around him predominated. With a" keen eye he
watched the process .of disarmament
taking place, and there was a smile���
if such a thing was possible with him
���in the abject humiliation 3t his
bated enemies, as they fled before him,
prisoners of war, on their way In Pretoria, there to receive their judgment.      I was there.

ilr. Golhnzs is one of tho Interesting
figures in Knttiih politics His flno t.irp,
sm rounded by ptray, bushy whisker, in*
hair, shows woll the warm hearted, kn.d-
lv character ho possesses. All over England ho js known as the laboring man's
friend, and especially as tho friend of the
agricultural cfa'sos. Through his mother
he spranit dlreotly from the ranks of the
farm laborers, and in all his subsequent
career as rich merohant, mayor of Birra-
lngliam, member of Parliament and Government offlcuil, he has kept the interest*
of those humble people close to his heart.
Thac phr_se "Three acres and a oow,"
which 1�� usually thouuht of when Mr.
Culling*' name is mentioned, was first
breathed forth by him os a pious aspiration when ho was cnmpalgnins: as Mr.
Gladstone t lleutenont. Ill expressed what
he wished could be granted by allotment
to every propoi tyleF3 family of agricultural laborers ln Kngland. It was taken
by the laborers thomselv o ., however, to
express the distinct promisa of tho Liberal party to thorn in cuta of suocesa in
tho elections It Is hardly too muoh to
su f that the samo bcliof was the dueot
cause of tlie success tbat did come to the
Liberals
S4r. Collin��s was not the man, however, to let the laborers hopes be disappointed. His famous small holdings resolution soon followed, and it was tho
foundation of the Allotment Aot, which
baa saved many a rural district In Eng'
land from ruin. The resolution upsot
Lord Salisbury's Government and made
Mr. Colllngs an under secretary in Mr.
Sladstona's third Ministry.
Mr. CoHiiiffS is*a great friend of Joseph
Chamberlain, aud the ttvo have travelled
and campaigned and tnkon their pleasures
together for many a year.  Both are Birm-

' In the year cf 1851 a   13   penny  black
Canadian postage stamp was'printed    by
the Government of Ottawa.     The   publio
did not regard   this    Bomber , issue  vvith
favor, so few were issued.   One   of these
stamps was lent to tho   Hamilton    post-
office, whero it vvas fold to an old gentleman, who said It was a shame    to   print
tiie   Queen's   picture   on   a   stamp that
might   be   handled   by   profane  ha.nds.
Tenderly the gentleman put it on a parcel, sending it to n, friend in tbo   United
States.  Here. In the vvasto   basket, it lay-
for many a (lay, till an errand boy found
it.   and   quietly   transferred it   to    his
album.  Despairing Gf getting a good collection, and his fever somevvhat  ...bating,
he sold them to .1 dealer. .The new owner, (
on looking at the catalogue,    found   that
what he bad piid $5 for was worth   $25.
-Aci-identally^thi3-stamp_was-slipped.into_
a SHcent   packet,    and   sent   to a dealer
rnsldinc in Hamilton.    Y_ hen   the  latter
opened the packet he was   astonished   to
find such a valnable stamp,    and,   being
honest, .wrote his friend to inform him of
what bad happened, offering   him 41.200
for it.    The   offer   w#s   adopted and the
stamp bad increased   in value end not a
few came from a distanco to look ot   tha
treasure. One day an English nobloman.
who,   through   n   Canadian friend,    had
heard of tho stamp, offered $1,500, which
offer was   accepted.    Tho   ISnpIish    lord,
falling In love with r.n American helross,
and   wishing, to    (tain   tho   favor of her
brother, presented him with the stamp as
a takon of hi.s esteem.    Here,   in its new
and lusnrlou. AmericnD homo,   lt   came
to a sad ond, for one   day   tbo maid, by
mlstako. swept   tho   stamp,    which   had
accidenttilly J��1I_ n ont of the album, into
r.ho firo. In aa instant the ^tump,   which
thousand* had heard of and   longed   for,

Ilia Int-Tcitlne Story of How He Did  Not Rob the Bauk Vault.  "I was cashier of a bank in Pennsylvania a good many years ago," suid the man  who wns traveling on a deadhead puss,  "and after n couple of years 1 mude up  my mind that things wore too slow for  me. In other words, I decided to gobble  up what money I could and skip for Europe nnd go into business on my own  hook. I bided my time, and one night,  when I knew I could lay my hands on  about $00,000, I prepared to bid the town  goodby. I had a key to thc bank and another to the vault, nnd as we had no  watchman inside I had no trouble in getting in. It was about midnight when I  made my raid, and I hadn't opened the  vnult yet, when tbe bank door was unlocked, and the president entered. He  had nu empty carpetbag under bis arm  and gut weak in the knees when lie saw  me. \\V hadn't passed a question when  another key clicked, nnd the manager entered. IIo also had an empty carpetbag,  and he also got weak in the knees. The  three of us snt down, each with an empty  bn; at his feet, and looked at each other  for a long time. It was the president  who .spoke tlrst, and he said:  "I was worried nbout the funds in the  vnult."  "So was I," said the manager.  "So was 1," I added.  "And hadn't we better seo if lhey are  safe?"  "I think we had."  "So do I."  "Then tlie president unlocked the vault,  mil the three of us stepped inside and  as .iired ourselves that the funds wore all  'right. As vve cnine out nnd the doors  weie locked behind us he said:  "1 found this old carpetbag on thc  street ns I came nloug."  "And I found this," said tlie manager.  "And I found this," I added.  "There was an interval of painful silence, nnd we all walked out together.  The outside wntclinian came up as wo  did so, and the president observed:  "Special meeting, you see, James. You'd  bettor go inside for tlie rest of the night."  "Yes, Inside," snid tlie niaiiagcu*.  "Yes, inside, Jumes," I added.  ".Innios was locked in the bank." continued the ex-cashier, "nnd we bade each  other good night and separated. It wns  nn even up thing so far as it went, and it  ought to hnve been to to the end, but tbe  lipnost man is always'the one to suffer.  Next day I got the bounce. The president said Hint he nnd .the manager hnd  been thinking things over nnd hnd come  to the conclusion Hint I hnd been tempted to rnb the bank nnd would have got  away with every dollar if they hndn't  happened to show up.

Poorly ventilated, over heated kitchens,  says oue who has given tho matter  much thought, are responsible in many  cases not only for tho proverbial ill temper of cooks, bat for their piedisposltion,  to disease as well. Rheumatism, varlcos*  veins and tuberculosis are frequent maladies which affli-t the.cook, while alcoholism and a first class cook are too  often synonymous to be pleasant. Tbo  reason adduced for the prevalence of  tlie alcohol habit is that men or women  working in air heavy with odors of food  are fceldom hungry, but crave stimulants.  Spitz, Spy;   ������  C.

The wedding of Mr.JEdw'm .Moscrop  BOARD JDF TRADE  Dominion Improvements to Navigation  at the Nine Mile Riffle.  A meeting of the executive council  of the board of trade was held on  Thursday night. Present: Piesident,  H. A. Brown, Secretary Shaw, W. M.  Lawrence, J. M. Scott and J. Abrahamson. , Copies of very conciliatory  communications from the Postmaster-  General and comptroller of the mail  clerk service, to the- amalgamated  board of trade of Kootenay were read  relating to the complaints with regard  to the Kootenay mail service. Mr,  Mulock promised a tri-weekly service  to Ferguson during, the navigation  season and bi-weekly in, the winter.  The chief business before the council  was with regard to the contemplated  improvements to be done by the Dominion to the navigation of the upper  river at the Nine Mile Riffle. The  president stated ' that J. J. Roy.',  Dominion Engineer, had been in town  on Wednesday and told him that there  was an appropriation of $4,000, which  he proposed to expend at that point.  From the statements of Capt. Troup  and Gore, he considered that the  canyon had been improved as far as it  was -possible. He was prepared to  start the work" at once, but wauled  Capt. Gore to visit the ground and  mark out the work, since he felt that  he could depend on his knowledge of  of the rivei at all stages of the water.  Mr. Roy said that he was aware that  a consider.ible'amount.' perhaps 25 or  30.000 dollars would be required to put  the navigation of the river to the Death  rapids in a satisfactory condition, but  that it would be no use asking parliament to make an appropriation of such  an amount for this purpose until it  could be actually shewn that a steamboat service was established on the  upper river.  Mr. Roy asked Chas. Holten to take  the position of foreman of the works,  which nre to be commenced as soon as  Capt, Gore lias made his report and  will continue until the snow is too  deep, when the work will be over till  spring.  At the conclusion of the. president's  remarks, himself and J.' M. Scott were  appointed a committee to wait on  Supt. Duchesnay in order to get Capt.  Gore's services.  The meeting then adjourned.  The Kevelstoke Rink Co.  At a meeting of those interested in  the proposition to erect a skating and  curling rink in town was held at the  Union hotel last night. H. J. Bourne  and I. T. Brewster, the canvassing  committee, reported a total subscription to date oi $2,400 or nearly half the  amount required. It was decided lo  proceed with the organization of the  company at once and H, A. Brown, H.  J. Bourne, I. T, Brewster, W. M.  Lawrence and K, D. Johnson were  elected provisional disectors to sign  tbe memorandum of the association  and proceed with the necessary steps  to get incorporation. This is a project  of interest to everyone in town and the  task of raising the funds and carrying  it through should not lie left to a few  enterprising individuals, while others  stand by to reap the benefit. Thu rink  will be a credit to the town and the  carnivals and bon.piels-.which it will  render possible will he a benefit to  storekeepers nndhotelmen especially,  during the dull winter months. They  should be among the first to help the  rink along.  ii  m LEADING STORE"  No Blu.T-R, No Fes., Just business, That's all.
