_ Q.OO Per Year
On the North Side of the Lake
They Are Coming Out Around -
The Settlers' Homesteads.
Visitors in town from Celista report
black bears very plentiful in that part
of the world. They are beginning to
travel on the public roads, juat to show
there are no hard feelings between them
and the road foreman. A couple of girls
going up to a neighboring ranch the
other evening for milk met one running
towards them, but it turned aside and
gave them th.. right of way.
In other ways bruin seems to be. a-
dopting the habits of civilization. One
homesteader a few days ago saw a big
black bear in the lake bathing. It was
quite near the settler's home and ha
might have shot the animal, but though
he had a gun he had no license to Ure
it. So the bear finished his bath unmolested, massaged himself for awhile
and departed in peace.
He waa not the bear shown in the
drawing on this page. That is J.
Howard Smith's story in picture of how
they hunt bears at Adams Lake in the
winter time. He knows, because he
was there and helped skin it.
The dance held in the Blind Bay Hall
on Friday Aug. 8th under the auspices
of the Chase band which chartered the
steamer Andover and brought in a number of people from Chaae was a success
in every way and has greatly reduced
the debt on the I'iano and left a nice
balance' in the bank towards the Blind
Bay hall. About a hundred people from
Chase. Celista, Notch Hill and Blind
Bay' danced until four o'clock next
morning to the music rendered by the
following artists: Violinists, Messrs
Brown and Buckingham, pianists, Mr.
Ferguson of Seattle, Mrs. McAlpine of
Chase and Mrs, Graham, also of Chase.
Refreshments were served all through
the evening by Mrs. Dunne who was assisted by Mrs. Baines and at the close
of the dance a substantial supper was
served by these ladies a la buffet. The
next dance notified is that to be held in
Chase for the Knights of Pythias on
Friday August 15th.
Raspberries are nearly over but shipments of blackcaps and dewberries are
in full swing from Sorrento and Blind
Bay fruitfarms. And cultivated blackberries are nearly ready for shipment,
Mrs. M. Stewart has packed off to
Moosejaw some half hundred quarts of
fruit of her own canning. She has
thoroughly enjoyed her stay at the Bay
and is delighted with the place and its
produce, but iB afraid that the ranch
would be too big a one for her husband
to manage. She leaveB with her baby
on Friday next to meet her husband at
Pentiction and to stay with him there
and at Armstrong for a few days when
they will return to Blind Bay for a short
stay together, en route to Victoria.
Messrs. Walter and E, Moore who
were severly indisposed while in camp
are better and have gone to Salmon
Arm for a change.

A meeting is called in Sorrento for
Saturday August 16th to be held in the
old schoolhouse at 2 o'clock for the purpose of choosing delegates to the steam

age will be taken to bring up and if
possible press to a successful issue the
question of the formation of a progress
club. This could meet from time to
time at various points throughout the
district and in numerous ways accomplish much in the public interest.
About a year ago some such organization was suggested through the editorial
columns of the Salmon Arm Observer
and has since been urged in the board
of trade of that city by one of its members, Mr. F. W. Clingan. The suggestion has only been awaiting such an opportune time as the convention next
Monday will offer for carrying it into
The date of the convention has been
placed on a day when the Andover will
be arriving in Chase from up the lake
points. Many of the delegates are expected to come in by the boat and the
time of the meeting will if necessity be
adjusted to the time of its arrival, which
is usually about B p.m. The meeting
will, however' convene as early after
dinner as practicable so aB to get the
business through if possible in time to
accommodate those wishing to get out

Party to Adams Lake.
It was a pleasant party that left Chase
on Sunday morning at 8 o'clock for a
day's outing at Adams lake. The party
included Mrs. Matthewson, Mrs. Barnes,
Miss Fletcher, and Messrs. Matthewson
Keyt, Thompson, Haylock and Thunder.
Commodore Jock ferried them over the
Little Shuswap in the Old Reliable and
they were met at the warehouse by two
of Sturgill's comfortable democrats.
A ride of six miles through the fir and
pine woods brought them to Adams lake.
All are loud in praise of the meals
that were served at the Adams Lake
House. After they had done justice to
the lunch they took a cruise on the lake
in Mr. Sturgill's launch.

Mr. Shaw Meets His Constituents
At Various Points Chiefly
In a Social Way.
Mr. J. V. Shaw, M.P.P., haa been
taking advantage of a short respite
from his duties on the Indian commission
to visit his constituency and meet his
friends. He came to Chase from Salmon Arm, visited Shvswap on Sunday,
and then went on to Kamloops to be
present on Monday at the reception that
city tendered to the Hon, Mr. Bowser,
While in Chase Mr. Shaw met a committee of the board of trade with reference to improvements on roads and
Btreets in and approoching the town.
He gave some explanation as to how
Chase came to be overlooked in the estimates passed at the last session of the
legislature. He also assured the committee that notwithstanding this oversight some work would be done here,
but he could not say definitely how much.
During the week they might expect
Mr. Bruhn, the assistant in charge of
road work in the eastern division of the
Kamloops district, who would be able to
give more definite information on this
Mr. Shew asked that a committee be
appointed with which Mr. Bruhn could
consult aa to the work to be done so
that it might be carried on aa far as
possible in accordance with the wishes
of the townspeople. A committee was
accordingly named consisting of Messrs.
Haylock, Farris, R. P. Bradley, Grant
and Kinley.
In view of assurances recently given
to Mr. A. J. Lammers,in Victoria by
the*.Depnty Minister of Public.Works it
is confidently expecteu! that t>)e aifcoulii
to be placed at the disposal of Mr.
Bruhn will not be insignificant
Nothing Damaged

J..C. Adams, the watchmaker and
jeweller, fell sivteen feet the other day
when the scaffold broke under him while
he was working at the building of his
new shop. Mr. Adams stopped when
he hit the sidewalk but his watch kept
going right along. He had just cleaned
it and put in a new mainspring. Dr.
Scatchard was immediately called and
examined Mr. Aclunis and decided that
his works were all right and the case
uninjured except for a few scratches
and bruises. With good usage both are
warranted for twenty years.

Visitors From Celista, Notch  Hill
And Chase Are Royally
The Blind Bay folks were at home to
their neighbors from Celista, Notch Hill
and Chase last Friday evening. Tha
most of them were literally at home,
perhaps to leave that much mon room.
for the visitors. But there wen enough
there to give the outsiders a hearty welcome and see that they had a good time.
Mrs. Dunne and Mrs. Baines presided In
the corner from which the refreshments
They were ably seconded by the other
Blind Bay guests who were present in
making their visitors feel thoroughly
All that need be said about the music
is that Tom Brown and Ernest Buckingham were there with their violins. There
Was no official pianist, so that instrument had to take its chances, which
turned out all right, there being plenty
of available talent among the guests.
Harry Fowler was floor manager. Harry
ought to name a successor to that office,
so that in case of a gasoline explosion
or some other accident putting him out
of bnsiness there would be someone to
take his place. He kept things lively
on Friday night, putting in plenty of
variety���too much for some who didn't
know the dances.
There were several boats over from
Celista, bringing, among others, Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Kappel, Alfred and
Thomas Thomson, Mr. and Mrs. Tom
Brown, Billy, Joe and John Brown,
H. A. Fowler and Misses Charlotte and
Beatrice Fowler, Mrs. Haldane and Miss
S��r��_ H��H*ne, snd sodu* of the new
settler, whom Ihe reporter did not
know. Roland f. Salt was down from
Eagle Bay, accompanied by his two sisters, the Misses Salt, who are visiting
him on his homestead.
Those who took the boat trip from
Chase had perbaps the best time of all.
They arrived home in the morning in
good time to begin the day's work. The
bund did not find the excursion a financial Buccess, but this we hope will not
deter them from putting on at least one
more before the season is out.

Anyone who ever saw S-jeiety Red,
whose Sunday name is J. Burns, knows

A Inrge family, thut, like the rest of
the world, wus coming to Chnse, had
alighted from the incoming train. One
of tho smaller children attempted to
t'ultivute ths acquaintance qf the dog by
pulling his ours, but, as Red explains,
he is a hnchelor dog nnd misunderstood
the ruress. He snnpped nt the child
und tore u gush in the side of its face.
Mr. Burns escorted the family up to
Dr. Scntchard's and hud the cut sewed
up und there remained no hard feelings
on the part of an>one, not even the dog.
G. A. Coburn left on Wednesday morning for the East where he expects to
ramble again on his old stamping grounds
While in the east he expects to join his
father who left here about three months
ago and who will return with him about
the end of September
���Doc" Gibbons and W. H. Louie went
down to Ducka laat Saturday night.
Cecil Coburn rode down and joined them
next morning. They all rode back on
horseback. If it hadn't been Sunday
and therefore a strictly temperance day
you would think they were in a condition
that you would call "lit up."

As was learned from Mr. Shaw in bis recent visit, the Department
of Public Works has seen fit to divide the Kamloops district into two
divisions so far as road work is concerned. While Mr. White will still
be superintendent over the whole district he will give his personal attention exclusively to the westesn division, Hr. R. W. Bruhn as assist-
ent superintendent will be responsible for tbe direct supervision of the
eastern section, which might be described as Shuswap division, lying
as it does for the most part in the vicinity of the Shuswap lake.
This division of the district had become almost a physical necessity.
The Kamloops division is about equal in population to the Okanagan,
which it exceeds in area and also in difficulty of road construction. Up
to the present time, however, it has been receiving about forty per cent
as large an amount as that expended on the roads of the latter district,
It is inevitable that in the near future the Kamloops district must call
for a large expansion in road construction, The lack of organization
which has been responsible for its comparative neglect cannot obtai
much longer, The arrangements far closer supervision would seem to
indicate that the government is becomiug aware tbat one of the most
populous and extensive districts in the interior is largely without means
of intercommunication.
As to the man who bas been placed in charge of the Shuswap
division there can be nothing but satisfaction. All political parties a-
gaee that Mn Bruin knows how to -kike rdods.   \ ' '

... If the so called "Better Terms" estimates that are now in bud
mature in the course of time into blossom and fruit it will constitute a
triumph for the McBride government that will further establish its
claim to the name of "a business administration."
It is understood that these estimates include no less an appropriation
than $1,099,000 for Kamloops district alone. Included in that amount
are estimates for some roads in tlie vicinity of Chase that in the ordinary
course of events could not be financed by the Provincial Government
for several years to come. Details in i egard to these estimates are not
yet available for publication, but it is gratifying to know that tbe active and long continued efforts of the provincial authorities for
"better terms" are witbin measurable distance of some tangible results.

8tyl. Versus B.suty.
"Handsome ls us bsudsome does" Is
a good old fasbloned axiom, and beauty
of soul Is a fine thing; so ls being good
hearted. Many a plain looking woman
has found consolation ln the two latter
attributes. In ancient Greece there
wers two kinds of women, the Venusee
and tbe Mlnervas. When Venus frowned on one consolation was. sought la
Minerva. One is always a Minerva
from second choice. Venus sits back ln
a porch -ocker, calm, cool and serene
In the knowledge tbat her hair wont
get out of curl, her complexion wont
blow off and she doesn't have to talk-
Just a smile, and everybody basks ln It
Minerva works bard, her balr Is limp,
ber nose Is shiny, and she can't keep
cool because she engages ln heated argument-. Venus marries tbe millionaire snd rides ln a chaise; Minerva
marries the professor snd darns stockings. What a giddy world It would be
if women were all Venuses, for It is undoubtedly tbe Mlnervas who are the
balance wheel of society.
In modern days the next best thing
to being a Venus, If one cannot be a
Minerva, ls to be stylish.
Wbat Is this seemingly indefinable
thing called style? What ls It tbat differentiates one woman from another!
Why Is It that one woman will be stylish and the other dowdy, though gowned In the same manner? Why will a
pretty woman often pale Into insignificance beside her plainer sister? One of
the first things wben the desire Is born
to be stylish or smart looking, as tbe
English say, ls to feel stylish. This Is
easier then to feel beautiful, as Is occasionally advocated. The feeling that
one has style ls bracing. Unconsciously
the body straightens, tbe head goes up
and the step becomes smarter and
Another point to consider ln this
achievement Is tbe poise of tbe body.
Bbe who slinks along and shuffles ber
feet will never attain tbe desired end,
If style be ber desire. Much has been
'accomplished wben once you baVs
thrown your shoulders back, your head
up and acquired a smart step, for the
proper carriage and walk are the foundation of style.
B.suty Hints For Travelers.
For the traveler tbere ls a neat little
case ln pink linen, which Is more practical than silk, because It can Hike
many visits to the laundry without Injuring Its usefulness. This little case
wben unrolled displays pockets for tbe
soap, talcum powder, cold cream, tooth
powder or paste aud toilet water. It
will save many precious minutes ln the
dressing rooui of the Pullman sleeper,
though It costs only $1.50.
Another article whlcb Is sure to he
oppreclated by the traveler���and there
are few not among this number tbese
days���is the manicure set, with all tbe
necessary Ilttle Implements packed
compactly into tbe buffer. This does
away wltb those vexatious moments
wben tbe hurried traveler searches
madly among the dozen and one articles In the bottom of the bag for tbe
nail file or perhaps the orange stick.
By pressing the catch at the side of the
buffer the top springs np, revealing
a velvet lined compartment containing
e pslr of scissors, half a dozen emery
boards, a duplex file, an orange wood
stick, a box of nail luster and another
box ot tbe salve. Olose the catch and
tbe buffer ls ready for use. Many women buy them nickel plated for f2 to
keep In the bathroom, where the guest
may use them easily and where they
will not take up tbe room tbst tbe different articles would If spread out.
separately. The silver plated set costs
12.150 and the solid silver $6.
Care ef the Body.
Castile soap and orris root In equal
parts make a cleansing and fragrant
tooth powder.
Don't rub the face with too coarse a
towel. Treat It as yon would tbe finest
porcelain, tenderly and delicately.
A little carbolic add added to tbe water ln which burns, bruises and cuts

' And the Curious Yolk It
I'III 1 llllllll II111*111111
Wben Buckley asked the sanction of
his employer. Professor Rudolph Kin*
tela, to tbe marriage of that young
msn and (.lutein's niece. Douua, be expected that i*** wonld be extraordinary coudl. ttacbed to Kiufeiue
approval. K . .'In wus a wealthy and
eccentric scientist, ulelallurglst ant)
physician, who dabbled In various
strange matters for bis amusement
Buckley, his assistant, bad grown lo
time to understand tbe old man's oddities and to have u profound respect foi
the Intellect which had already inudi
several valuable scientific discoveries.
! Klnfeln smiled iienevuh'utly and
i combed blB long wblto beard with hit*
fingers wben tbe younger man spoke,'
j "Well, John." be began, "Donna is
' twenty-two. and of course sbe will
marry some time. I suppose you ure
I no worse tban other men.   Now, If I
impose a task upon yon before I give
i my consent you will agree to perform
���   "If I can," replied Buckley cautiously
The old gentleman chuckled, "It
j won't be very hard, Jobu." From s
I private cotupartuie.it beneath the lab*
��� oratory shelf be drew out a box and
handed It to Buckley. "Open It," be
John did so and revealed an oval
yellow object nearly the size of a football and practically of tbe same shape.
It seemed to be of metal.
"Now, John, there's your golden egg,"
went on the scientist. "I fixed it up
for you ln my leisure moments. If you
open It inside of a month you get Donna and a wedding present too. If not,
you'll have to wait awhile."
"What tools ntny I use in opening
"That's tbe point. John. You may
use your own two gocid bands and any
Instrument which does not weigh over
fifty grains."
"Fitly     grains!"     repeated    John,
amazed.    "Why,  that's   less   than   a
1 quarter of un ounce."
I    "Exactly."
[ yohn stared first nt the egg and then
at the scientist. "But, professor," he
expostulated, "un instrument weighing
fifty grains will be practically useless,
Why, tbe blade of a small penknife
weighs thut much. A thin latchkey
weighs more."
"But an Instrument much less in
weight will open thut egg."
Jobu looked dubious. "But supposing I use sometblng which weighs
"You wouldn't do It John, if you
agreed not to," responded the professor comfortably, "and I'd catch you
at It If you did."
* John wns young, fn love, and energetic. His three years' work ln tbe
various hobbles which the scientist affected hud given him tin unusual technical education, great confidence in
himself, nnd n certain delicate manual
dexterity which almost surpussed thut
of bis employer, clever as tbe older
man was. It was very natural that he
should accept the challenge nnd bear
away the egg.
He found Miss Dnnnn In tbe parlor
and explained the situation. It is bard*
ly germane to mention that wben the
girl placed her elbows on the table and
settled her chin ln her pink palms to
listen she looked dlstractiugly pretty-
so pretty, fn fact, thut John was compelled to interrupt hts narrative while
fie kissed her.
Wben be bad finished bis account ot
the conditions sbe rose. "Vou are to
go right to your room, John," sbe commanded, "nnd open that egg. I'm dying to see what's In It. No; you can't
stay here witb me and work on it. I
would disturb you," With the wurl*
ness of long experience, she dodged
around tbe table at this moment, anticipating by tbe fraction of a second
n lunge on tbe part of John. From a
place of safety beblnd a chair sin*
P'liutcd to the door. "Avuunt! And
tell me tomorrow morning what you
found." John reluctantly gave up a
chase whlcb promised to be fruitless,
and obeyed.
Settled In the easy ebatr In his own
room, he [laid file professor the com
lliuient nf examining tlie. egg very
carefully before beginning operations
He wont over it with his lingers, but
could feel no joints beneath the yel-
low pfllnt which covered tile metal.
There was no depression on the surface. It wus bis theory that a hidden
spring would open tbe sphere, and he
spent the balance of tbe eveniug in
searching for It At midnight tbe
secret was still undiscovered, and be
gave It up for the time being.
Donna was inclined to poke fun at
bfs failure the next morning. As tbe
chuckling professor readily allowed
her to try ber hand, Bhe spent an bour
and broke two balrplns tn an equally
fruitless effort
Tbe egg was rather ifgbt titan otherwise for Its size, but John felt certain tbat machinery of some description, hidden within It, controlled the
situation. By shaking It persistently
he was Dually rewarded by tbe sound
of a very fnlnt clicking. Thnt evening
be made a sort of cat's cradle of string
und placed the egg therein. With the
contrivance he was able to whirl the
egg over and over, ln this way hoping
to start the machinery. Occasionally
ht reversed tbe motion, but he tired
Uk the moaoim. .'i- <��'���'

Next he essayed to saw his way
through the metal. He secured a bur-
tier's saw of the Sneet steel, but was
compelled to dlspeqfe witb the bundle
sa it brought the weight of tbe little
Instrument np to nearly 100 grains.
Intermittent labor for tbe next three
evenings wtth the saw. a bit of cloth
serving as a handle, resulted ln some
badly blistered fingers and the scratching of the paint la several places.
That was all, If tbe fact that tbe egg
was proved to be steel as fine and bard
as tbe saw is excepted. In desperation
Buckley attempted to crush the obstinate oval between his bands and failed
"I've made up my mind to get tbe
paint off," he announced to Douua.
"Then I can tell wbere we're et."
"We're at sea," she replied dolefully,
tenderly kissing oue of tbe blistered
Buckley secretly agreed with her, but
bis pride bad been amused by repented
failures aud tbe whole souled chuckling
of tbe professor, whose sides seemed to
be shaking constantly wltb merriment
over his assistant's predicament Uo
would open the egg now or die.
The young man took his penknife
apart, sharpened the lightest blade tu
a razor edge and uttucked tbe paint
Although It cluug exusperatingly. In
time he hud cleared It from tbe surface. This revealed tbe preseuce of
thousands of little holes in tbe metal,
each closed by a minute fleck of tbe
paint, which the blade would not dis*
It was well into the fourth week
when this was done. "Just look at
those confounded needle boles!" be exclaimed In disgust.
Under tbe stress of a brilliant Inspiration Donna jumped up and clapped
her bands delightedly. "That's it, John
���a needle!" |
One was brought, aud John set himself to tbe task of thrusting It careful*
ly as tar as it would go Into eacb of
tbe little boles. Tbis removed tbe Deck
of paint, and as tbe ubsence of paint
showed that a bole bad been tested uo
time was lost In subsequent explorations.
"Foxy old gentleman, yonr uncle,"
smiled John, "but be overlooked tbat
point. If he'd thought about It, I know
be'd fixed It to keep the pulnt out ot
these wretcbed holes."
It was the evening of tbe last day of
the allotted month thnt the busy needle, penetrating farther tban usual,
produced the hoped for result. Tbere
was a whir of clockwork, and a heavy
spring, tbe pressure upon It suddenly
removed, thrust Itself through the side
of the egg.
John llshed a metal cylinder from tbe
broken shell, openeil it aud. with bis
arm around Drama's neck, reed tbe paper which it contained, it was a check '

Japanese Murderer's Last Toy a Ri
markeble Piece of Work.
Of the making ol curious ship-
models���as ot books���there is no end.
Every bona fide sailor retired Irom
sea is ss certain to possess a model
of some sort of a favorite vessel as
he Is sure to have an anchor tsttoed
upon his brawny arm. In the design
and materials of such models much
ingenuity is customarily displayed.
Everyone has seen the favored mantelpiece decoration of s full-rigged ship
enclosed in a bottle of glass, and pus*
sle models and models that are en*
titled to rank in the freak class or
otherwise are "too numerous to men*
tion." For novelty of materials, delicacy and thoroughness of design, and
strange incidental circumstance, a
model which at present adorns a table
in the office of British Columbia's Attorney-General, Hon. W. J. Bowser,
would, however, be hard indeed to
outclass. It iB s steamer model, true
in every detail of line, housework
and equipment. The maker was Uw
Japanese Takahashi, executed at tha
Kamloops jail in early August for th*
shooting of a compatriot named
Omori, the sequel of s bunkhous*
jangle chiefly produced by drink. Takahashi was sn ex-sailor and so soon
as he was placed in the condemned
cell to await the expiation ot his crime
on tba scaffold, employed bis time in
modelling two, ships, one of which be
expressed a wish to have sent to tha
Hon. Hr. Bowser alter bis exeoution,
with his compliments. It was accord*
ingly forwarded by Warden Vicars,
who, is sn accompanying letter,
wrote: "I am sending you by expr
the model of a steamer made by T_
hashi, who was executed two weeks
(go. I may say that it is entirely
made of scraps of paper with the exception of a little thread tor the wireless serials and rigging, and that it
is glued together with the prisoner's
porridge. He hod no knife or scissors
���simply bits of thin paper and p
ridge and s little thread. I consider
it a very clever piece of work. I
have one myself, but it is not nearly
as food sa this. We gave him a little
paint to finish it up with." Taka-
hashi't crime waa tha shooting of another Japanese lumber camp worker,
K. Omori, at Furrer, near Kamloops,
on April il. laat. Both had been
drinking, and Takahashi'! explanation
was that Omori had repeatedly bullied and beaten him, finally attacking him with s knife. He added: "I
then lost my mind and used my pistol, not intending to kill or shoot
him, butjjnly.te _cj_ him"
