Kimberley Win
Seven Straight
Unbeaten Record  Preserved
nn Sunday Last at Expense
of Wardner Nine
Continuing their victorious car
mi Sunday lust hy defeating Wnrdner, the Kimherley baseball team
registered their seventh successive
win in the Knst Kootenay baseball
league, and seem to have the pennant
pretty well assured, if nothing happens to reverse their fortunes. They
entertained the Wardner team on
Sunday last at home, and beat them
after a good game by a score of (J
tn li. Cranbrook and Wycliffe fought
il oUl for second place in the league
on the Wycliffe diamond, and the
mill men got the long end of the
score iu a ragged game, by a score
of Id to 2. Cranbrook is now tied
with Lumberton for third place.
Lumberton was at home to the
Concentrator team, and though hopelessly in the cellar, the latter continued to fight gamely, going down
tn Lumborton by a score of 4 to I.
II is a real test of sportsmanship to
keep on playing gamely in the face
of a continued losing strenk, and
every baseball fan in the district endorses the view that the Concentrator crew nre n real sporty bunch to
keep at it, and no one wouid begrudge them a share in their luck.
The league standing at present is
as follows:

lnvermere. It. C., June 22.—The
body of Don Lotighlin, n fourteen
year old boy, was found floating
in lhe Columbia River last week, not
far fiom his home at Kit-lands. He
had heen absent from his home for
nearly a month. No foul play was
suspected, His father, ,1. Loughlin,
having u desire to bury the boy at
Golden, where he was born, may
lake Ihe body down Ihe river, the
eighty some odd miles, on ti specially
constructed  barge.
Saturday last homes in Crnnbrook
and Kimherley were saddened hy the
passing away of Helen, the beloved
wife of Mr. Edward Kemp, of Kimherley, and daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Andrew Mueller, of Cranbrook. The.
late Mrs. Kemp was horn in Seattle

her home in Kimberley, where Mr.
Kemp was engaged with the C.M. &
S. Co., at the tunnel. About six
months ago signs of an effection of
the stomach made themselves apparent, and despite efforts made to remedy the trouble, it gradually became
About three weeks ago she came
from Kimherley to her home here,
and a week iater entered the St. Eugene Hospital. On Friday last it was
deemed necessary to perform an,
operation, from whicb she at first'
showed signs of recovering nicely.
Being subject, however, to a weak-
heart, she was unable to withstand i
the effect of the gas and ether, and
death suddenly claimed her at 1.30
on Saturday morning. The deceased i
young lady had mnny friends, being
herself of a likeable disposition and
nn ardent lover of animals and flowers.

The ladies of the United Church
have every reason to feel gratified
with thc result of the lawn social

last at the home of Mr. und Mrs. G.
D. Carlyle. No finer night could
uissihly have heen desired for the
locosion, it just being sufficiently
warm to make the snle of ice cream

evening. The attendance must have
'cached over the three hundred mark
md the ladies appreciate the gener-
lUfl patronage that was accorded the
affair from ull the denominations in
llie city. Thc grounds in themselves
at all times attractive, were made
much more inviting with the many
lights and lanterns thut were hung
iround thc spacious lawn. The ice

(From Our Wycliffe Correspondent)
Something with all the earmarks
of a landslide descended on the baseball representatives of the neighboring village of Cranbrook, when they
locked horns with the local nine on
the latter's battle field on Sunday
afternoon. When the first man went
to bat, in the Wycliffe half of the
first inning, he led a parade of eight
runners over the slab, and when thc
smoke cleared, thirteen men had
been to bat for the total of eight
tallies just mentioned, us a result of
one pass and five singles off Woodman, and five errors behind him.
Things stayed pat in the local half
of the second and likewise third;
two more were added in thc fourth;
the fifth also netted a brace, while
the sixth was featured by a set ef
wallops, including Johren's homer,
that produced four runs. This was
Woodman's swan song and Logan
tramped over to the hill; he proved
effective in the last two innings, hut
win for Cranbrook had disappeared
around the corner long before he
took hold.
The visitors made their mark
the fourth frame, when they scored
on two passes to first, a stolen base,
and a sacrifice fly. Not until the
ninth rolled around did they repeat,
this time on a clean double by McDonald, followed by Hogarth's single.
Johren added to his batting laurels
in this game, by poling out a Bambino bunt that took him around all
four bags, and in addition he threw
a nice game, allowing but six hits.
It is only fair to say that he was ac
corded fine support, tbe work o
Huffman, in centre field, being es
jrecUlly spectacular. IWay this sort
of thing continue^ for efficient fielding makes any good pitcher better.
Woodman was touched for hits a
little more than often, but he had
mighty poor encouragement to start
with. After the agony of the first
inning was over, however, his field
got busy and played good bull behind him; the games turned in by
McDonald and Taylor in the outer
garden being particularly outstanding. McDonald also led his team
with the stick, getting two hits, one
a double, out of the team total of
six blows.
The umpires, Trew, who called 'em
over, and Doran, on bases, were without fault, according to the crowd—
a rare event, worthy not only of notice, hut also of emulation.

Tf anyone has not visited the
children's playground recently, it
will be worth their while to go nnd
see the changes that ure being
wrought in thla Muck, which for the
lnst two years have been something
of un eyesore to many citizens. Although the wo'k is by no means completed, it hns reiu-hed a stage where
it can bc seen whnt the finished job
will look like. All the trees, with a
single exception, are doing well, and
the new cinder walks make everything shipshape. A notable addition i.s the lofty flagpole, which is In
place, and appears well. The playground equipment will soon all oe
in plttBO, quite nn extensive range ot
apparatus being on band to make the
hearts of the children glad. One of
the large plots has been seeded to
grass, Mr. Sam Fyles doing the costing.
In a week or two this will be an
exceedingly pretty spot «nd a credit
to the city, ns well as the Rotary
Club, which is financing the work
that is now going on there.
Members of the Native Sons lodge
who are responsible for the trees
which were planted are hnrd ut work
keeping their younglings well watered.
Under conditions that seemed a
great deal more fitting, the elty hnnd
gave the first of their open air con-
Certs ut the recreation grounds on
Wednesday evening. The new resplendent handstand, it is hoped, will
frequently be put In its proper use
in this way throughout the summr.
The bund dispensed some good music thnt wus thoroughly enjoyed hy
those within hearing, and perhaps it
is not too much to hope for thnt nt
some future time scats will be provided for those who desire to visit
the grounds while the open air concerts are in progress,
Opening Dance at K. P. Hall
To fittingly mark the completion
of the addition lo thoir hall, the
Knights of Pythias lodge, and the
Pythian Sisters of Crunbrook Temple, Nn. 28, are uniting to hold a
grand opening dance there, on Frl-
dny of next week, July 3rd, The
new addition has been made large
enough to allow of good kitchen arrangements for n function of this
kind, and will udd a great deal to the
usefulness of the place for publltf
functions. Robinson's orchestra li

Elsewhere in this issue will be seen
an advertisement of the Lawn Bowling Club of the G.W.V.A. The Veterans have completed the bowling
lawn at their grounds and are now
open to receive applications for membership. They Ao not wish to limit
same to the members of the club,
and are throwing priveleges open to
all citizens. It is understood at one
time a healthy bowling club existed
in Cranbrook, and with the starting
of a new club it is hoped that the
enthusiasm will he revived. The fee
for the season has been placed at
$5.00 and the official opening is announced for Friday evening, June 26,
at 8 o'clock. Mayor Roberts has
signified his willingness to be present
und officially declare the club open.
A hearty invitation is extended to
any and all interested in the game.
The club has purchased two complete
sets of bowls.
Mr. Wm. Johns has been response for putting the grounds In condition for bowling, the result being
a splendid green for the purpose.
Meal weather prevailing for the
most part, a great many cars from
Cranbrook and Kimberley headed towards Fairmont Hot Springs on Saturday and Sunday last, to enjoy
the salubrious location, the Ideal
scenery, and what is probably more
attractive than either, the bathing
in the open air tank. Nearly a
hundred visitors from Cranbrook
and Kimberley were there on Sunday, us well os others from more
distant points, and places in the
Windermere Valley. The green
lawns adjoining the tank have made
cool resting spot for those who
are not bathing, and the tenta are
being put into shape to rtcelve
their quota of visitors who desire to
stay over night.
The restaurant in connection
with the springs is opening up for
service on Sunday next, to serve
the week-end trippcrs. It is anticipated that in a week or two,
when the tourist tralllc gets heavier,
there will be a great many more
visitors there front distant places,
travelling over the Banff-Winder-
niere rond.
Among those noted at Fairmont
on Sunday last were the following:

The Milagrosa, with hor consort,
the llidalga, rolling after hor, steered a south by westerly course, then
veered to tlie southeast, round Cape
Tiburoii, and thereafter, standi ne:
well out to sea, with lhe land no
more than a cloudy outline to larboard, she headed directly east, and
so ran straight into the arms of Captain Blood, who was making for the
Windward Passage. That happened
early on tiie following morning. After having systematically hunted tii:
enemy in vain for a year, Don Miguel chanced upon him in this unexpected and entirely fortuitous
fashion. It was also the way of fortune that Don Miguel should thus
come upun tho Arabella at a time
when, separated from the rest of the
fleet, she was alone and at a disadvantage. Tt looked to Dim Miguel
as if the luck which so long had been
on Blood's side had at last veered
in his own favor.
Miss Bishop, newly risen, had
come out to take the air on the
quarterdeck, with bis lordship in attendance, when she beheld the big
red ship that had once been the Cinco Llagas out of Cadiz. Th,. sight
thrilled her curiously; it awoke in
her an uplifting sense of pride that
took no account of danger to herself
in the encounter that must now be
Beside her on the poop stood Lord
Julian. But he shared none of her
exultation. He had been in his first
.sen fight yesterday, and be felt that
Ihe experience would be sufficient
for him for him for a considerable
"Look," saiil Miss Bishop, pointing. Did she realize, he wondered,
what was afoot? Her next sentence
resolved his doubt. "She is English,
and she comes resolutely on. She
means to fight."
"God help her, then," said his lordship gloomily. "Her captain must be
mad. If they could so easily blow
the Royal Mary out of the water,
what will they do to thi.s vessel?
Look at that devil Don Miguel. He's
utterly distrusting in his glee."
Of necessity now, under diminished sail, the advance of the Arabella
was slower; but it was none the less
steady.      She   was   already   within
ami the brass guni gleaming on her
prow. ThL. gunners of the Milagrosa
raised their linstocks and blow upon
their smoldering matches, looking up
impatiently at the admiral. But the
admiral  solemnly shoo!;  his  Ijead.
"Staii me!" said his lordship.
"This Englishman may he gulldnt
enough to accept battle against such
odds. But there are times when discretion is a better quality than gallantry iu a commander. Presently
you. will suffer me to place you under cover."
"I can best see from here," she
answered him. And added quietly:
"I am praying for this Englishman,
He   must  by   very  brave."
The Arabella was advancing, now,
along a eourse which, If continued,
must carry her straight between tbe
two Spanish ships.

sinokp of that discharge had lifted,
ihe English ship was found almost
between the Spaniards, her bows in
line with theirs and coming steadily
on. At last tbe Arabella was right
between the Spanish ships, prow to
poop and poop lo prow. Don Miguel
spoke to ih,, trumpeter, who had
mounted the quarterdeck and stood
now at the admiral's elbow. The
man raised Ihe silver bugle lhal. was
lo give the signal for the broadsides
of both ships. Bul even as be placed
it to his lips, tbe admiral seized his
arm to oiTosi him. Only then bad

Soon, however, the rage of that
brief fight was spent. The banner
of Castile came fluttering down from
the masthead. A buccaneer had
slashed the halyard with his cutlass.
The boarders were in possession,

her cheeks turned yet a deadlier hue

'Look,"   said   Miss   Bishop,   pointing,
"she is  English,  and she  comes
resolutely   on."
Almost at once two successive
spurts of flame leapt frnm the brass
cannon on the Arabella's heakhead,
and scarcely had the watchers on the
poop seen the shower of spray where
one of the shots struck tbe water
near them than, with a rending crash
and a .shiver that shook the Milagrosa
from stem to stern, the other came to
lodge in her forecastle. To avenge
tbat blow, the Hidttlgn blazed at the
Englishman with both her forward
guns. But, even at that short range
(between two and three hundred
yards)  neither shot took effect.
At a hundred yards tbe Arabella's
forward guns, which hail meanwhile
been reloaded, fired again at the
Milagrosa, and this time smashed her
bowsprit into splinters, so that for a
moment she yawed wildly to port,

rattle and clank of melal as a dozen

resented it.

lordship   exploded   in   excitement.
"Captain Blood!" he cried. "Are

gentlemen's consolation. Delightful
refreshments were served by the

cards. Several vocal selections were

most pleasant evening was spent hy

Two more games were played of
the Nutt League schedule during the
past week. The .first game was played on Tuesday evening, between the
Hard and Soft Nutts. The Soft
Nutts were the victors by a seven
teen to twelve score. The game
started out a little rough for thc
sawmill forces, for Jasper's crew
from the yard went at it in a merciless manner, but the lumber handlers
finally became more docile, and the
gaps in the score sheet were reduced
quite materially. The two teams
were sort of picked up from the various departments, but the yard still
maintained the edge, since the majority of that department's line-up
are members of the Lumberton regu
lars. On Friday evening the Old
and Hard Nutts crossed bats, and the
final result showed the office and
store crew the winners hy the tune
of nineteen to fourteen, seven runs
being brought in in the last inning,
which helped to clinch the game for
the office and store. Billy Robertson
featured in the game with two beautiful catches out in centre field, and
also managed to get on the bnses
several times. The yard and planning mill manager is grooming this
youngster for future use. The gam,.

THERE is nothing quite like thc East Kootenay
outdoors in the spring and early summer, The
late summer may bring smoke from the forest fires,
and dust from the busy highways, hut at this time
of the year the freshness of thc air, the greenery of
the woods and the whiteness of thc distant mountain snows, all have a virginal purity that do lose
a little of their charm as the summer wears on and
the weather gets hot and dry. with the automobiles
stirring up the dust and changing the green of the
roadsides to a dust-laden, drooping spectacle. At
present the woods are a place of wonderment for
those who can appreciate in some small way the
lavish way in which nature has blessed East Kootenay in the way of scenery. The lakes aud creeks are
at their hest and thc wild flowers give au enchant
ment to the remote spots where people do not often penetrate to denude the forest carpet of these
ornaments. Blue, pink, white and all thc varying
shades that nature alone knows how to derive —
they are all to be mel with, and here and there is
the brilliant orange of the wild tiger lily stabbing
the green background with a splash of brilliancy.
There is only one discordant note in the harmonious chorus of nature at this time, and tbat is
the song of the mosquito as it pursues its mission
of annoyance to humankind in general. Hut then,
as some poet has said, 'tis tbe lovliest roses
that have the sharpest thorns, so must there be
expected some drawback to the enjoyment of the
outdoors at this season.
SOMEONE has struck a very commonsense way
of attempting iu some measure to popularize the
P. G. E„ and the territory through which it passes.
It is nothing short of revolutionary in the history
of this ill-fated government-owned line, though it is
something that its more successful competitors ill
the dominion use copiously, It is in short — adver
tising. Thc very sensible view is taken that if the
public mind could be somehow shifted from a contemplation of lhe needless millions that have been
wasted in the construction of the line, to a proper
idea of the resources of the rich, but unpopulated
territory through which is passes, there would spec
dily arise a new feeling of confidence in the line.
It is not fair lo label the men who projected the line
in tht- first class as dreamers aud men of poor judgment, because there were notable men of thc day
who ventured to criticise lhe Canadian Pacific project in its early stages. Tbe progenitors of the
P. G. E. were men who knew the potentialities of
that part of lhe province, aud they visualized what
the development of those resources would mean to
the province — but thc development did not come,
'ihe resources are still there, and the problem now
being faced is how to get the people and the capital to them.
the primaeval forest has as yet suffered little from
the ravages of man, and wliere the fire fiend has
not made any dread visitations for many years
past, there is a wonderful charm in the winding
road which still follows the caprices of the animals
that probably first broke the trail. At various public gatherings and boards of trade conventions in
past years utterances have Iieen heard from members of the government approving such a course,
and it would appear to he matter that the board of
trade could take up and press home to a conclusion.
With the importance that now attaches to that particular road as connecting with the Banff-Windermere road, there is more justification than ever for
some action by the government.
"No one can deny the virtue of acquisition,
but no one can defend the wrong of unrestricted greed.     ...     We must tear selfishness from our lives.    Selfishness will  not receive Its mortal challenge till we conquer self."
1'HESE are sentiments which found utterance recently during thc course of an immense Rotary Club international gathering.   It indicates the
spirit in which the service clubs operate, and how
at the heart of them all there is the core of unselfishness.     Criticism of these clubs usually comes
from those who have not a proper understanding of
the motive back of it all, anil who cannot understand the humanness of  a creed that abnegates self
to a minor place in the scheme of things.
There fire those who feel that the work service clubs do come within the province of the various fraternal and social organizations which are extant, or should be part of the activities of the churches. But the fact remains that these bodies have
not seen fit as a rule to step outside the pale of
tlieir immediate sphere, with one or two notable exceptions, leaving a field in which the community
service clubs seem to find good scope for their energies. Men of all creeds and ideas are brought together and even if it is felt some do not always climb
to the ideals tlieir club sets liefore them, it must be
remembered that Rotarians, Gyros, Kiwanians,
Lions, and the other service club members are not
archangels, but only human beings, and so still subject to human failings.

THERE are rumors that in the comparatively
near future, there is likely to be some lumbering activity in the wooded stretch of country between Wasa and Canal Elat. Naturally, since timber holdings are taken out to be made use of ultimately, it must he expected to come sooner or later. Without wishing to impose any hardship on
any concern, it is a duty owing to the public to have
the strip of timber contiguous to the motor road
through that country preserved. Nearer to Cran
brook there are miles aud miles of road running
through logged-off and burned over lands, where a
second growth has not yet arisen to clothe the naked hideousness of the barren scene with a semblance of ils former beauty.      But lieyond, where
IT is doubtful if there has ever Iieen a case in criminal annals in this province, about which such a
quantity of buncomb lias been peddled around as
the Janet Smith murder case. Its ramifications
are becoming so wide, like the waves on a body of
water, that the cause of the disturbance is daily lie-
coming more obscure. A Chinaman is on trial for
the original murder, others are up for his abduction, individuals are being tried for libel, police
commissioners may lose their office, and the attor
ncy-general is being panned for his policy in the
case. Will it bc possible when all this smoke hai
cleared away to find who did murder Janet Smith?
ytom Our Changes
The revealfttions of the Duncan report on the Nanh-
Mutual organization are amazing. They seem to furnish
at least one good reason why fruit growers in more than
one fertile section of this Province have been almost
ready to give up in despair. They strike ub all the more
acutely because the plot which has operated has international ramifications and shows our producers to have
been at the mercy of an unscrupulous foreign concern.
The Government is to be commended for exposing such
a state of affairs and it is to be hoped that ita publication
of the official report will be quickly followed by such action as the circumstances so obviously warrant. If there
is doubt about the efficacy of the law in respect of the operations of trusts and combines as it stands at present,
there should be no hesitation In passing now legislation
which will either prevent such organized hold-ups in the
future, or provide stiff enough punishment to dampen the
ardor of all organizations which endeavor to make undue
profit by bleeding the growers and public. British Columbia fruit-growers themselves no doubt can be depended upon to take steps they think necessary to meet the
case in their own interests. But they are entitled to be
protected by the law of the land. And if conditions shall
ba *o Improved, the Duncan inquiry should prove of real
value In more waya than «»*.—Victor!* Tiaara.
Calgary's mammoth jubilee celebration, held in conjunction with the
Calgary Exhibition and Stampede on
July (ith to Uth, will no doubt bring
together the largest number of people ever at one place in Alberta. The
Calgary Exhibition ami Stumpede
held the past two years were very
marked successes, but anyone familiar with the preparations already
made for this year's combined event
is convinced that it will be even a
greater success. From the greut
historical pugeunt and stampede pa-
rude, which will take place ut ton
o'clock the morning of July oth, to
the grund barbecue on Suturday
night, the week will be full of thrills.
nnd will tell the story of fifty yeurs
of development.
The exhibition will be the occasion
for the gathering together of the
best live-stock, not only of Albertu,
but of the adjoining provinces and
states. Alberta is noted for the production of the highest quality live
stock, and as the live stock industry
is the foundation stone of Alberta
prosperity, the exhibition directors
ure giving all possible encouragement to it. The great historical pageant will in itself be a wonderful
demonstration of fhe quality of Albertu horses, as most of the flouts
in the parade (which will be five
miles long) are to be drawn by four
and six horse teams, and the farmers
of the Gleichen district, in presenting their thirty-six horse team, hauling ten wagon loads of wheat, will
demonstrate in a manner which all
Alberta residents will be proud of,
the class of horses produced in the
Never in the history of the Cal-
gary exhibition has such a large
number of special features been arranged for, in fact, it is almost an
impossible task to get time for them
all in one week. Some conception
of how much larger all the events
will be this year than lust, can be
gathered from the fact that last year
there were ten chuck wagon outfits
competed, and this year there will
be at least eighteen or twenty. Following are a few of the special features for the week: Historical Pageant and Stampede parade, the
west's best live stock and industrial
exhibits, Old Timers' re-union in
their log cabin on the Exhibition
grounds, North West Mounted Police
vetrans' re-union, Royal Canadian
Mounted Police musical ride, horse
races, auto races, Canadian champion stampede events, the world's
longest team, from Gleichn, extraordinary vaudeville program daily,
Rubin nnd Cheery's midway shows,
morning streets' display, Indiun village, Hudson's Bay trading post, log
cabin for Forestry Branch headquarters, Cowboys' and Old Timers' ball,
Hoot Gibson.the cowboy movie stur,
and company of artists from California will participate and tuke motion pictures. It will be a week
chock full of recreation and inspiration, closing with a mammoth barbecue on Saturday night.
Special passenger fares will be in
force from Alberta, Saskatchewan,
and British Columbia points. General information, and prize lists for
the various departments, may be obtained by writing to the Exhibition
offices, Calgary. Exhibition entries
close on June 20th. There is a splendid classification for live stock and
domestic exhibits.
A special staff will be maintained
by the Exhibition directors to secure
rooms for visitors, This service will
be provided free from the booth at
the Canadian Pacific Railway station.

Miss Hazel Jackson returned on

may go to thc university for the first

On and after July 1 it will-not be
necessary to put a two-cent revenue
stamp on cheques of $.r> or under.
This is the result of many delegations sent to the Government by the
Retail Merchants' Association, who
huve finally hud this passed. While
they cannot take all the credit for
this legislation, nevertheless that
body feels that they are entitled to
its share. But stamps will be needed on all cheques issued up to June
30 of this year.

A special train renched this city
from Medicine Hot one day last week
under somewhat peculiar circum-
stnnces. It was currying relatives
of A. McDonald, head of the A. Mc
Donald wholesale grocery firm, who
had been taken seriously ill ih Nelson, and was in hospital there. On
account of his extreme age — he is
now eighty-one — fenrs were expressed as to the outcome of the illness.
This information was wired to his
family in Winnipeg, und thoy left
immediately for Nelson. Their
train missed connection with the
Crow train by two or three hours,
and a special was ordered out to
catch up with it. This train left Medicine Hat about five hours behind
the regulur train, but .made' good
time, gradually creeping up on
the regular train, which it finally
caught at this city, after a chase
all through thc night. Mr. McDonald, in the meantime had made
extraordinary recovery, bcing up und

had been pronounced so ill hy the

Electrician Hu Narrow Escape
Mr. Callaway, an electrician in the
employ of the East Kootenay Power
Co., at Elko, had a narrow escape
from death on Tuesday of last week.
H0 fell from a transformer, receiving
n shock from live wires of 220 volts.
All that saved him from falling into
the canyon two hundred feet below
was a picket fence, which he clung
to. He was rushed to the Fernie
Hospital for treatment, and on examination it was found he had dislocated his arm, nnd cut his shoulder
badly. Later he was taken back to
his home, where he is now recovering.  .
Claim Made That Two Hundred Thousand Dollars Already Spent on Line
In spite of thc strenuous opposition of J. T. Shnw, independent labor member for West Calgary, a bill
to renew the charter of the Calgary
and Fernie railway company was passed by the railway committee of the
house at Ottawa. This is the concern which is hacked by English capital, and proposed to build a line
following a route north from Michel,
tapping some valuable coal deposits
in the rough country which is now
many miles from nny transportation.
J, Broley, Fernie contractor, has the
contract for the building of the
line, and it has been rumored persistently of late that construction will
soon be started on the project.
n opposing the application for the
renewal of the charter, Mr, Shaw
said that the original charter had
been granted in 1906, He did not
think a dollar hnd been spent on its
construction, but application was
made regularly for a renewal of the
charter. When this was done two
years ago, he said, it had been represented that the company had money in hand, and was in a position to
go ahead immediately with construction. But nothing had been
done towards it, and with this company holding a charter, others were
discouraged from gdlng in und building. "Parliament should not be
asked to net as a cloak for speculators," Mr. Shaw said.
J. P. Ebbs, Ottawa representative
of thc company holding the charter,
claimed that $200,000 had been expended by the company. No other
company wanted to build this line,

plicntion were grunted. It was fi-

is done within the next two years,

Once again the Wardner kida baseball team emerged victorious over!
the junior Bull River team, by a
score of seventeen-aix, when they
played on Friday evening last on the
I home grounds. Aa usual, the boya
played an exciting game, with aeven
innings in place uf the regular nine
innings. Rogers, later relieved by
tl. Anderson, pitched for Wardtifr,
while Walter Holman started the
game for Bull River, but retired in
the fifth in favor of Fenwick. The
home kida have grown uaed tu Hol-
inuu's pitching, and consequently,
butted him ull over th? diamond.
Both teama, however, put up u splendid game, and a number of close
plays were made in the infield. .Some
especially tin* work waa observed
between Morris Anderson and Geo,
Thompson, first and second bases re-
jupectivelyi for the home team. It
wus a treat to watch young George
scoop them up and peg them over to
Morris, who waa not seen to miss a
ball. An exceptionally large crowd
wus present ut the game, rivalling
the attendance at a big game in fact;
und a collection of $14.20 waa contributed—which swelled the funds in
hand of the kids' team to $2fi. . Ben
Hmbree ueted as umpire, to everyone's complete satisfaction. The
kids' series of games now stands ut
'three to one in fuvor of Wardner,
and the fifth game will take place
shortly, on the Bull River grounds.
The kids of the Wardner teum are
! taking into consideration the sending
but of a challenge to the junior Cranbrook team, and if this is done it ia
hoped that a couple of adults will
take charge and help the kids manage their affairs, aa there ure some
good little players on the team, and
they deserve encouragement.

both teams making a splendid showing. The game was played mainly
umong the fielders, both in and out;
all the players doing some good butting off the pitchers of both teams.
The Wardner line-up was slightly
changed, two players, Murkle and E.
Thompson, not being able to play;
but it turned out to be the best lineup tried yet, this year. Dow started
the pitching for Wardner, but was

Announcement hns peen made that
the Studebaker Corporation of America is discontinuing the custom of
presenting a new line of automobiles each year.
Instead of bringing Studebaker
Cars dramatically up to date once in
twelve months, this company proposes to keep them up to date all thc
time, ndding improvements and refinements from time to time as the
merit of such betterments i.s proved
to the satisfaction of Studebaker's
engineering department, which, the
corporation points nut, is maintained
at a cost of half a million dollars au
Studebaker believes that this new
policy benefits present Studebaker
It is also the belief of this concern
that the policy of no "yearly" models enables purchasers of new cars
to obtain models that arc always modern, without the necessity of waiting for annual changes and without
the danger of their new cars becoming obsolete.
The success of the present line of
Studebaker cars is one reason for
this important change. During the
first five months of 1925, Studebaker dealers delivered forty per cent.
more cars to buyers than in 1024 during the corresponding period. On
May 31st, the end of the period re
ferred to, Studebaker dealers had only half as many cars in stock as or
the same date last year,
F. H. Dezall, local Studebaker agent, has received notice of the new
policy, which is likely to prove a popular move.
Despite the fact that al) Studebaker factories, at Detroit, South
Bend and Walkerville, Ont., arc operating to capacity, the demand for
these cars remains far in advance of

Thtro are many earelew drivers
who violate every common-sense

naturally careful'when crossing a
street and ths majority of drivers
didn't unconsciously observe safety
first rules there would te hundreds
of mors accidents every day.
I have drawn up a few simple
"Don'ts" for psdsstrlans and
drivers which I think would go a
long way toward eliminating scores

1. Don't step off the curbing to

"The action of the 0. S. Bureau of
Standards in exposing fake solutions
for charging batteries will not only
help the battery business," says Mr,
T. M. It. Stewart, or Ratcliffe &
Stewart, Garage & Battery Works,
this week, "but it will save tho car
owner a great deal of money,
"In spite of the efforts of reputu
ble battery manufacturers and their
authorized service stations, 'trick electrolytes' continue to bc offered on
a large scale. . These solutions are
-'generally guaranteed to put new lifi
into the battery, sometimes in it few
"Unless the car owner is an electrical engineer or has had experience
with storage batteries, he may not
understand what actually takes place.
'The Bureau announces that 'changing the battery does not charge it.
•An investigation has recently been
made at the Bureau of* Standards of
certain solutions which were said to
charge batteries instantly, or in a
short time, as compared with the usual process. These tests have shown
that batteries containing these solutions, contrary to the claims made
for them, behave in accordance with
well-established laws of electro-chemistry.' |
"Analyses made by the Bureau reveals that these magic solutions are
nothing more than electrolyte such
as is used ordinarily in an automobile
battery, combined with a certain amount of sodium, or a certain amount
of magnesium with coloring matter.
"My best advice to car owners is
to sec that nothing but the highest
grade of battery electrolyte is put
into their batteries when any electrolyte is required) and that the work be
done by a reputable battery man.
"The National Vigilance Committee of the Associated Advertising
Clubs of tbe World has for many
months been investigating these
'trick electrolytes.' On one occasion
they succeeded in publicly exposing
one of the concerns manufacturing
such a 'trick electrolyte' When the

for rejoicing.
The committees and sub-committees are working overtime in planning the best progrnm possible. It is
quite evident that amongst the severul committee heads there is an active, friendly rivalry—each committee trying to make its work more
elaborate and more enjoyable thnn
the other. A number of pleas
ant surprises are in store for the
thousands who are expected to be in
Kimberley for Dominion Day sports.
The good things start early in tin
day with a bang. There will be ;
glorious parade with a lot of floats
costumes and music. The program
will not end until late at night or early the next duy with a dance and
grand march at the big carnival to
be held on the school grounds, where
numerous booths and as many things
of interest will be ready fnj- the big
Challenge cups, and medals or other prizes will be awarded to the team

Sports for the children and people
of all ages and tastes will be included in the program. Everything possible is being done to make thP day

Il is currently rumored that before bmg there will be great activity
at the North Star and Stemwinder
mines a| Kinibcrly. i
Mr. Weeks, tho general manager
of the company which has both the
Stemwinder and North Star mines
under lease from Mr. O. 0. Thomp-
■n, has gone tu Spokane after having come from Toronto to look over
the properties and to take whatever
action he thought advisable. Mr.
Thompson went to Spokane with
Mr, Weeks, nnd it is freely mention-'
i\ in some quarters that Mr. Weeks
was so favorably impressed with the'
quality of ore taken out here, he is J
likely to recommend to his company
that the two mining properties be
purchased outright and tbat work
there bo cnrried on On a more extensive scale.
It is understood on excellent authority that more office
space is under consideration or ne-j
gotiution and that an increase in the
staff is nbout to take pluce. From
this obvious conclusions can be
drawn, taking it for granted that'
an Increase In the clerical staff is
usually the forerunner of nn addition to the general operating force,
which, of course, would be necessary if the two mines ar(. \n he op-

For several months the people ut
Chapman, commonly known as Concentrator, have been endeavoring to
have a post office located there.
Upwards of two hundred people
reside there and the C. M. & S. Co.
is providing for a larger population
by erecting additional houses on the
little townsite which is nearly two
miles from Kimberley.
It is said that thc last time Mr,

the University this fall must have
successfully passed their junior matriculation examinations, and those
having defective standing may be
barred from classes. Supplemental
examinations for matriculation students will commence on Monday, August 30. An important ruling has
been made that no candidate under
18 years of age will be admitted
without complete junior matriculation, and no candidate over 18 years
who has deficient standing will be
admitted without special permission
of the faculty concerned. The regulations also state that, except under
very special circumstances, no student under the age of 10 years will
be admitted to first year, and none
under 17 years to the second year.
Senior matriculation standing will
give admission to the second year.
