tmiity would Iir given tlii'in to show
tin' others Unit thoy could mako tlio
hoights. Some of Um g'e'dtlcmon,
who liml plnyed tho ADAM, planned
Unit they would again try tu reach
(lie summit un July tith. They were
ti'ld bow the top bad been reached
mi -July isi uiul determined that
thoy would try the -same way. The
ladies decided that they would like
tn try (lie mountain ut the same
time and tn dn sn unbeknown tu the
other party, Uiey made ready with
the understanding with their guide
thut if possible he ivould gu with
them tlm next morning. They plan
ned to start at four as tho others
were to leave at four-thirty, and
thus raee them to the top. When
the time fur starting came one in
the challenged party was so ill that
it was thought best not to go, bat
after talking the matter over they
decided that they would make the
stmt anyway.. Wheu tho loot of the
mountain was reached the ascent
bad tu be carried un with,. caution
and so tho ladies proceeded slowly.
ln the under brush the guide lost
his bearings and led the ladies a
climb about an hour and a half out
of their way going around to the
(ar side of the mount which is the
more difficult way ot approach. However, the ascent was successfully
made and on reaching the top thej
found that the "tiler party was there
beture them. The gentlemen had
made ascent iu a little over three
hoars while the others had taken
about six. The ladies on reaching
the top were in better condition than
on Btnrting while the others were
pretty well tired out from their having  scaled  the  heights  su. quickly.
The lirst party on reaching the top,
at mice built a fire and put up some
Hags bnth of which were seen from
the city and created sume little excitement. They left their Hag, also
a rellector which may he seen with
the naked eye nay time in the evening when tlie sun strikes upon it.
They also engraved their names on
some of the dead trees ns a notice
to others that they had reached
the ti,|i when not "hampered by
ladles."
'I'he warmth of greeting to, the
second purty was very mnrked on
account oi tlm fact that the ladies
Ion, liml gained the summit.
After the casual salutations had
passed between tile two parties the
second party proceeded to raise the
Canadian Hag. When this was ilone
they took a snap shot of tiie "big
four" win. Immediately started the
descent. Alter resting for some
time and partaking of-lunch the
ladies got ready t" leave the top,
anil reaction the foot ot the nioun-
tilil) Bhortly after tlie others. The
ladies proved themselves excellent
climbers nml in every wny showed
great powers "I oniluranco. Mr.

'I'lie winters extund [ruin tlie latter

During the winter tlie thermometer
falls at times to zero, and in summer rises as high as !tl> degrees in
tlie shade, the nights being comparatively cool, Kxtreme cold is not
severely felt, and is of short dura
tion, uur is the summer heat exhausting.
Land suitable for fruit growing
near Craubrook sells at moderate
prices, aad can be obtained within a
shun distance of the city. Land on
the benches is very suitable for fruit
generaly speaking, but is usually
more expensive and difficult to irrigate than un the prairie.
Many locations ou the Kootenay
liver would mako ideal fruit furms.
Early and hardy varieties do well,
but foi the tenderer varieties and
keepers it is better to have the
warm sun-shinny hillsides which face
the south and which are protected
from the early,    if uny frosts.
Kur the tirst and secohtl year o-
tatnes or root crops may well ue
grown between the trees; the third
and fourth, it is a good plan tu
grow clover between tbe trees, leaving a strip uf ground in line with
each row of tree.-, fur cultivating
them. After the tilth year it would
probably be found better to pk>w the
clover down.
To get the best results it is news
sary to plant the right kind of
trees, as some varieties are much
mote profitable than others, Fruit
has not been grown long enough as a
business in the Kootenay valley to
enable us to make out anything like
i complete list of the varieties ot
tpplcs thut should  be planted.
Apples, Strawberries, raspberries,
plums, etc., grow luxuriantly and
with very little attention. At Wasa.
Mr. Hanson grows excellent crops of
apples, both table and crab, annually. At. the St. Kugene .Mission, six
miles from Cranbrook, fruits of all
kinds are successfully und abundantly
grown. It is quite safe to suy that
under proper conditions, fruit grow
iug in the Kootenay valley hus a
prosperous future before it.
Tn farm in the Kootenay valley
requires u certain ainuunt uf capital,

espoctive lines in their profession.
There are mure than 200 circus
champions with the show. 'I'he costuming is rich and elaborate, and the
horse display, ur burse fair, is the
finest exhibition of the kind ever
seen in this city. The big spectacle

beautiful creation. The big show
will exhibit in this city July 15th,

every act aud feature that they  pre
nted during the phenomtnal run of
sixty performances in San Francisco
when 21\,,K~rl persons paid admission
to see it. A bin street parade will
be given ut 10 o'clock on the morn
