Presentation of Diplomas to
Graduating Class to
be Arranged
Tlir graduating class nf the ('run
brook High Scliool plan to stage un
ontortniumonl unlquo, mil only in
Cranbrook, bul in British Columbia.
This will Itp in tho nature of n graduating exercise In toko place in the
Auditorium, on Tuesday evening,
Sopt, Bth.
Many peoplo recall with pleasure
the graduation exercises of eastern
Canada or llie United States. The
local board has felt for .sonic time
that our students should be given the
benefit of this bit of education. In
consultation with Inspector De Long,
principal Porter hnd planned to try
this event this year. Now that he
has resigned, he still feels thut the
class should have this honor. He will,
therefore, he in Cranbrook all the
time from now until the Kith of Seplemher, and will give considerable
time to preparation for this event.
It will be in the nature of nn invitation event, but the general public will be given on opportunity to
secure seats as far as possible. Each
graduate will be given four sents
for their parents and friends. Each
student of the High School will get
a seat, nnd tho students of next
years' grade X and XI will be given
two tickets for their parents. This
will about take up the house, but
there will be several good seats that
may be secured from Mr. Porter nfter Sept. 5th.
The program will consist of addresses by the chairman, the principal and by some outstanding educational leader of the district. There
will he n clnss history, a class prophecy, the valedictory and a good
program of music. Of course, there
will bo the present nt ion of diplomas,
and the various service organizations
will be asked to contribute prizes for
premutation. Any others who are
interested in offering prizes for
inst years' Work to any grade, are
requested to consult with Mr. Porter
at once.
This should he one of the outstanding events of the yenr. It will bring
much publicity to Crnnbrook, as it
will be watched hy Ihe entire province. All interested arc urged to
give Mr. Porter nnd hla class every
Further announcements will be
made each week.

The city fire department had a
busy time on Wednesday, when no
loss than three alarms for minor
fires were turned in. Fortunately
little damage resulted at nny of
Ihem. About noon a small fire was
noticed iu tlu- shod hack of the Raworth building on Baker Street, occupied by (!. J. Spreull and the gov*
er ii ment employment office. This
WOI tbo scone of a similar fire two
years ago, uheii the inside wnsdwrn-
ed from some unknown cause, and on
ihis occasion, the origin ofrtho fin*
is again a matter of mystery, fortunately, it WOS put out before nny
domngo was done. Later in the day
n hush fire nt Ihe head of Wntt Ave.
took the attention of the fire department, this also   being  extinguished
before it had gone very far. The
same dny some children were respon-
litilo for starting a fire under the
sidewalk near the residence nf A. P.
Noble, nnd this was also dealt with
before ii had made any appreciable
headway. Saturday night, what
tnlghl have proved a serious fire, was
nipped in Ihe hud when an outbreak
occurred in tho upper part of Thompson's second hand store on Armstrong Ave. The fire was noticed
from across the street and the alarm
promptly given, and when it was
found impossible to put the flro out
with buckots of water, the fire brigade was summoned and was nble to
quench the outbreak, which by this
time was going up the walls and nn
the ceiling. It had started in a tool
box which contained some oil waste,
hut as there had been no one nenr
tbe room for a couple of days previously, the origin of this fire is also
unknown, though it might have been
11 case of spontaneous combustion.
In another five minutes this might
have resulted in a serious blaze, and
this furnishes another instance of
the fire being caught just in tinw.

(Special to The Herald.)
lnvermere, B. C, Aug. 12.—Mr.
R. Gladwyn Newton, U.S.A., Superintendent of the Dominion Government Experimental stations for the
Qolumbla-Kootenny districts, announces that Mr. Robert Chester hns
recently been appointed his assistant
to lhe work. Mr. Chester is a bachelor of the science of agriculture and
an honor graduate in agronomy of
the University of Hritish Columbia.
One of his first official duties will bo
to visit tbe various fidt fuirs of the
Mr. Chester iH a son of Mr. and
Mrs. James Chester, of this city. He
has recently completed his course at
the University of British Columbia in
agriculture, and friends of the family will join in extending their congratulations in his appointment to
the post at the lnvermere Experi-
mental station. Mr. Chester has
had some experience in soil survey
work in Central British Columbia,
under conditions which it was felt
were somewhat akin to those in the
Windermere Valley, nt the Experimental Farm,
Not many people can he found
who express any surprise at the result of the New Brunswick elections
on Monday last. The Liberal government, under Premier Veniot,
was badly defeated, and the Progressives, or Farmers' party, formerly holding a few seats, was entirely
wiped out. The new Legislature
of the province will be made up ns
Conservatives   37
Libernls   11
Conservative majority   26
The  house  was  previously   made
up as follows:
Liberals       29
Conservatives       12
Progressives    7
The two principal provincial is-
ues were the exploitation of Grand
Falls for power purposes, and the
laxity claimed in the enforcement
of tbe prohibition of liquor. The
Conservatives had pledged thcmscl-
to cancel the contract which the late
government had mnde for the development of Grnnd Falls, in order to
permit of further investigation of
the project. These, nfter all, are
more or less local issues, and seem
scarcely likely to give rise to such
widespread dissatisfaction as the
turnover of the vote would indicate,
which gives justification for the view
that tbe election may be taken as
giving some reflection of the feder-
il feeling in tbe province.

The results <>f the holiday senson
made themselves felt at the  regular
meeting of the Board nf Trade, held
in the City hall, on Mondny evening
last when only n very few gather
with President Wilson to discuss several   of   the   big   questions   at   this
moment confronting the people nnd
the  commercial  life of this  pnrt of
British Columbia.
It was au opportune time to touch
upon  a  number  of   points  affecting
the tourist traffic.    The importune
of' taking good care of this busines
was felt hy all.those'at the Board of
Trade meeting on Monday eveningi
and the value of the tourist trade
was   realized   by   practically   every
business house on  .Saturday evening
last when the husiness streets were
lined with automobiles and the stores
were pretty well lined up with tourist purchasers.
On Monday evening in reply to a
question by a member of the Board
of Trade, Secretary Lewis stated that
during the past week an average of
over 27 automobiles registered at the
Cranbrook   tourist   park   each   day.

Constable Roberts, of the city police force, has been notified by
the police commission that his services will no longer be required after the end of the present month.
The police commission held private
Ittlngs of Inquiry to look into the
complaints which wore made against
Constable Roberts, at  which wilness-
were heard. Constable Roberts
Would have much preferred a public
enquiry, if only tit allow the facts of
the case to be known instead of
mere rumors, feeling his record entitled him to this. At no time
was there any suggestion made of
any improper advances on his part,

Agricultural Association Arranging for Program
of Races
.Mr. A. I.. Hay, district agriculturist, left the end of last week for the
coast, accompanied hy two teams of
young farmers, who will participate
in the stock judging contests nt the
Vancouver nnd. New Westminister
fairs, representing the Knst Kootenay districts. One tenm consists of
Stewart McClure, Warren Kerr and
Lawrence Foster, and the other consists of Mnrgaret McClure. A. B.
Fenwlck, Jr., and Maurice Godderis.
The first of these teams is the same
that competed at the coast last year
nnd made such u good showing. They
will he competing again at the Vancouver fair, and it is confidently expected tbat they will make an even
better showing than last yoar. Tho
second team is expected to compete
at both the Vancouver and New
Westminister fairs. Mr. Hay expected that the competition in this class
would be even keener than formerly, and even though the entries from
Cranbrook aro nt some disadvantage
owing to the fact thai they have not
the fully developed variety of types
to judge from, it is, nevertheless, expected lhal Ihey will show up woll
in  tho prize list.
The Vancouver fail- is in progress
this week, hut the stoek judging events do not usually take place until
about the end of the weok, so that
it may be next week before tho results arc known.
Among the fanning committee it
is felt that much credit is due to Mr.
Hay for working up those teams and
giving East Kootenny much valuable
publicity in connection with those entries at the const fairs, and everyone
feels that any credit which goes to
these young farmers from tho success which they may attain, is cer-
taialy fully earned.
The annual picnic of Selkirk
Lodge, No. 56, A.F. * A.M., Kimherley, took place at Premier Lake on

The weather was ideal and from
twenty-five to thirty automobiles

a complement of Masons with their
wives and kiddies, or sweethearts,
intent on a day's recreation at this
pleasant resort. The numbers were
augmented by visiting brethren from
Cranbrook and Fori Steele, also ne-

The victim of an unfortunate ac-
Icident on Monday of last week, Angus Livingstone was the first married
iinan to lose his life in the Sullivan
mine in an accident. A bulkhead

collapsed, anil when the debris fell
on htm, his head and body wero buri-
■ ed, and it appears he died almost
Instantly from a fractured skull.
'Such was the nature of the accident
that it required about two hours incessant woi'k on tbe part of a rescue party t" release the unfortunate
man's body.
He was forty-tour years of age,
and though not prominent in the
work of fraternal or other organizations, he led an exemplary life, and

also survived by another brother at
Britannia, B.C., while Mrs. Wm. Atkinson, of Vancouver, nnd Mrs. G.
Duffy, of Portland, are sisters of
the deceased. Hi? mother and two
other sisters are still residing in the
Old Country.
An Inquest was deemed necessary
by the coroner, M. J. Halpin, and
this took plnce on Tuesday afternoon, the jury being empanelled and
viewing the body that morning. The
Inquest took place at the old school I

Mr. O'Brien, assistant superintendent, gave evidence as to the construction of the bulkheads, nnd also j
said that the bulkhead  iu question !
was defective, a fact that the decens-!
ed  and  his  partner  were  aware of.
They were about to fix the defect
when the accident took place.
Dr. Hanington testified he was
called to the scene of the accident,
and nfter viewing the body said he
concluded that death was instantaneous, due to a fractured skull.
John   Kdwardson,   partner  of  deceased,   testified   that   he   saw   the
muck rolling over the bulkhead, and
called to his partner, he himself being above the bulkhead.    When he
came down, he discovered deceased |

The funeral was held on Thursday,
and  was  a  most   notable  gathering,
large number of people desiring to
express their sympathy with the family, and their respect for the deceased, by attending the lnst rites.
It was the largest funeral ever been

LOOKING back over the past five months, the
Ottawa Journal sees "the worst session ot perhaps the worst Parliament that Canada has known
in vear-" ll finds lhe live months barren of any
achievement, ami their concluding week- such as
I., inspire disgust ami amazement, with grave public
questions sidetracked ur compromised and millions
uf .h-llars voted without scrutiny. It wishes that
tin- nation cotild have been congregated in the gal-
lanes of the House of Commons tu witness the spectacle, tin- inference evidently heing thai were the
people to see the performance of Parliament und""
its presenl leadership, they would he quick lo ma
a change. The Journal recites the n
conclusion in part as follows:
"Of the loiitf list of promises in the speech from
the Throne, practically nothing got to the statute books.
The pledged solution of the railway rate question
brought little but eompromi.se to cover retreat from an
impossible position; the much heralded measure to con
trol ocean rates ended in a cabinet bout, high cost and
humiliation; amendments to the Grain Act so favored
elevators over farmers that even the Progressive W
turned and rent its erstwhile leader; a $10,000,000 rural
scheme, un evident deliberate fake, was luckily killed by
the .Senate; a high-sounding coking scheme, brought in
ut the lant minute, was either still-born or the victim of
infanticide; a transferable vote bill, promised repeatedly,
never made an appearance; the Home Hank depositors
bill had to be taken in hand and put intu half decency
by the Senate.
"Of the vital needs of the country—check i.f ox-
Iravntfuucc, reduction of taxation and debt, prevention
of the drain of human and raw material to the United
States, a vigorous [migration policy—this session brought
not a hope. Continued heightening of tariffs the world
over was met by government fiscal tinkering based mt an
electoral map.     Industrial depression, unemployment and
mounting obligations saw the government march on in ex-
travngance, oblivious to world conditions, careless of
business -stagnation, heedless of the strain and drain on
the nation through taxation, emigration and debt. Decline of emigration, declared and admitted lo be a vital
necessity, sow the government but confess Impotence and
failure. Manifestly dishonest budget statements, enormous increases in dobt, sustained high taxation, patronage millions distributed like manna from heaven to favored constituencies—these wen* the ministry's only reply to a condition growing increasingly grave.
"Mr. Meighen, contrasted with this story of his
opponents, has united and vitalized bis parly. His programme, resting upon unchanging principle, but applied
Intelligently to change, is the ablest, clearest, sanest
statement of policy that the country has had in years,
And Mr. Meighen is the puppet of nobody. Nobody owns
him. Nobody controls lum. Mis policies are bis own
policies, His principles are bis own principles. Mis mis
takes are his own   mistakes.     Ueside   (he  wavering,   the
back-sliding, the muddling and votc-buittng of Liberals
and Progressives, his clear-cut, uncompromising advocacy
of a Canadian policy for Canada, the old tried historic
policy lhat builded Confederation, stands out in hopeful
"The country, we nro convinced, is turning to
tlmt. policy. It is sick of thi.s governmenl and of Ihis parliament. It is sick of log-rolling and bartering for voles.
It i.s sick of government by listening; sick of extravagance; sick of debt, of taxation, of drift and impotence;
sick of the things which, in four years of bountiful harvest and favorable opportunities, have seen Canada move
backwards, her industry languishing, her people becoming exiles, her riclu's being exploited by others. Ii is
preparing, we think, to wipe out this Ministry and this
Parliament, and to give Canada a leader who will lead

[Ulto Scotch, who are said to be very
largely of the type of curly settlers
who first located ut Winnipeg, Governor McDougall was one of the
earliest Scotch settlers. He was given charge of opening up the new
settlement. Later thc French made
opposition and with them in their
cruelties and robberies, and acting
as their leader, was the vainglorious
Louis Reil, whose first victim was a
Scot. Thc murder of this Scotchman stirred thc imperial government
to action, and'they co-operated with
the authorities at the Red Kiver settlement, by sending a military expedition under Colonel Wolseley.
When on the morning of the 22nd of
this month, fifty years ago, Col. Wolseley entered Fort Carry, Reil, the
"little Napoleon," had fled a few
minutes before, running away shoeless and crazed with fear.

President Wilson thought that n
friendly greeting nnd courteous
[treatment should nol be neglected
whenever tin opportunity odors to extend same. These little nets of nc-
commodntlan tiro not difficult to give
hut thoy moan a lol t.i the strangers
and will latov bring great returns to
Lhe community in increased tourist

! The matter of roads nnd the dire
need for vasl improvements occupied
iln. attention of the meeting I'm*
quite awhile. A communication wns
i i-nil from Cleneral Rond Foromnn
John Taylor In which he gave some
information in regard In tin* Inter,
provlncial highway from .Moyie to
Goatfell which, Mr, Taylor stutes,
would cosl in ihe neighborhood of
$75,000, nnd tho road from Curzbn
tn Kingsgate would eust approximately $25,000—making 'in nil ,n
total of $100,000, But, in spite of
tin- large sum of money required to
do this work, Mr, Taylor thought
thai the Board of Trade should use
ils influence In having liie work undertaken Just ns sunn ns possible.
The meeting reviewed nt length
the condition of the roads in this portion nf the province and it wns a-
grced thai the Department of Public
Works should be urged to at onco
do considerable work on mnny of tbe
highways, especially on that portion
uf the road between Moyle nnd
Kingsgate, Considering tho mileage
the nniiuiiit necessary for the completion of the work was not it large
sum, the President stated, lie added
that   $60,000   per   mile   wus   being
BPenl mt tho r | east of Golden.
li wns 'fi.r.it,*il nut, however, that
in building Ihe highway enst of Golden, tho Dominion Government was
tt lurge contributor towards its expense. But in spite of this fnct the
feeling of the meeting wus that the
rond from Moyie to tho boundary
line wus in a disgraceful condition
and the government by neglecting
the repairs was nlso seriously interfering with the Btoady flow of tourist trnllii-. This husiness is it big

I'ond in question is one of tho main
trunk highways between the United
States and British Columbia and It
is unfortunate thnl tourists from the
'stales, after leaving their own excellent highways should bo introduced to Canada over this particularly
had stretch of road. The portion
between Irishman Creek and the
I sheep ranch, east of Tochty, is extremely had. Mr. Riley stated.
Tenders received for the mining

Tall, stately timber at lakes, along

meeting voiced a strong objection to

loggers. Those great primeval* of
the forest add a groat deal to the
attractiveness mid comfort of places

when motoring out in the country.

were nt the camp all last week, left
last week-end, nnd the camp liars
heen in charge of Major 11. B. Hicks,
M. T, Harris and J. M. Clark, of this
cily. The camp was run on new lines this year this year, and some features entirely new were Introduced,
an effort being made to run the camp
ou Gil well training lines. An outline of the cainji activities for the
first few tlays is given below:

On Wednesday of lasl week the
camp was thoroughly under way.
The weather was ideal, and the boys
had got accoustomed to the work,
which was new to most of them. Two
half hour periods during the day
were devoted to swimming, Lectures and demonstrations were given
on the practical application of scouting, by the chief. Most of these lectures wore attended by the camp
staff, troop and patrol leaders. Notes
were taken, so thnt they could he
referred to at a later date.
Wednesday afternoon. Colonel Allen, of the provincial Forestry Department, addressed the boys on the
question of the protection of forest
fires, his talk being greatly enjoyed,
and it is certain that the Scouts may
lie fully trusted in the near future
as the have in the past, to handle the
question nf fires In the forest; in
fact, fires anywhere.
The great principle of scouting was
; being fully brought home to the staff
and boys. The tamp was ideally
located, the long line of troop flags,
the line on the main staff Indicating
the location of each group of patrols.
This was in accordance with the full
development of the patrol system.
Under this main flag stood the hoys
assembled ench morning for fh»g
raising and prayers.
In the evening camp fires were
held, the first one being entirely
taken up with the explanation of the
aims and methods of work by the
chief, who pointed out to the boys
very clearly his method of conducting the camp, and particularly Impressed the fact that what was
sought was a development of the
natural aptitudes, that scouting depended on spirit rather than on rules.
The camp fires which were held later, were taken up by an interesting
program consisting of stories, songs
and instrumental numbers, arranged
nightly by the duty patrol for the
day. At each evening every member
of the camp was expected to contribute. The chief was well satisfied with the response given by the
offcers and hoys to his principle of
mutual co-operation, and of discipline from within rather than from
without. He expressed confidence
that if the officers and boys would
assimilate Ihis principle they would
acquire the kernel of the movement,
and that they would be able to live
scouting   in   their   actual   everyday
life. This is primarily what scouting is intended to do, and is the great
aim of all Scout camps.
The camp was made up of Scouts
from the following places:
Fernie   22
Michel      J)
Fort Steele      1
Cranbrook      US
Special precautions wen- taken for
the safety of fhe lioys while swimming, there always being a boa|, party iu charge of a member of tho stall',
who carried witli him a life line in
ease of emergency, nnd under no
consideration was bathing permitted

Low railway fares for harvesters
will be in force in British Columbia
to the prairies from August 8th to
81st, the arrangements to this effect
I having heen made by tho superintendent of government employment
■ bureaus. The harvest will call for
the services (,f about 110,000 men,
.and it is estimated that this province
can supply about 0,000. The rates
are the same as last year, that is,
| $10.00 from Vancouver and $11.00
'from Vicloria to Calgary or Edmonton, and half a cent a mile from Blither of those points to the destination. The rates are effective from
interior points. Similar low rates

Marking     49th     Parallel
Mr. Foster, member of the Board
of Adjustment under the "Hours of
.Work Act," which established the
eight hour day In this province at
the beginning of the yenr, was a visitor in the city the end of last weok,
looking into one or two points which
(hove arisen in the administration of
the act. It hns been decided in respect to printing plants in the interior, that the principle aimed at is
not so much the eight hour duy as
the forty-eight hour week, Mr. Foster making it quite clear that so far
aa the newspapers were concerned,
that it was quite in order for them
to exceed the eight hours per day
if necessary, providing the 48 hours
was not exceeded during the week.
In the case of urgent work, a term in
which there is wide latitude allowed,
Mr, Foster stated that it would be
advisable to obtain permission from
the Board when it was anticipated
it would be necessary to work extra
time, and in this regard there would
be no undue difficulty in obtaining
the required permission, if it wns
absolutely necessary to get the work
Messrs. R. Hnydon and Paul
Sprengel, two of the survey party of
the United States Coast aud Geodetic survey, arrived in Rossland last
Tuesday afternoon in a motor truck
and are the advance guards in tho
erection of the monuments on the
[Canadian-American boundary line.
Several other members of the party
j will arrive shortly from the Boundary country. Observations are to
he made mostly at night, when by
\ the use of an electric torch more
'accuracy is assured, it being doubted
however, that much can be accomplished at present because of the prevailing forest fires in the locality.
The monuments are to bo erected 20
miles apart on the Canadian-American boundary line, and will he done
by the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey and the Canadian
Government. Canada is establishing
the monuments on the eastern section of the boundary, and the United
States Government on the western
side. The American survey parties
'are working West from Eureka,

Commercial travellers working in
Alberta and British Columbia are being compelled to take out motor car
licenses in both provinces, if they
extend their operations. A similar
arrangement is being adopted in Saskatchewan. This information has
come to hand from reports made by
travellers, and Clarence Mitchell, of
the local branch of the Provincial
Auto 'License department, confirmed
the report here Saturday morning.
He said that the Alberta government
was compelling all travellers, working through this province, to have
Alberta licenses for their cars.

years ago on
June 28th, 1880,
tlm first through
train to crocs the
continent in
Canada, left
Montreal and
reached Ita western terminus,
Port Moody,
right on the dot
on July 4th. It
was a glorious
occasion, the
realization of the
dreams of that
little hand of pioneers who for the
past five years had hoped and planned
and fought for it. No better description of the event has been written
than that by George H. Ham, the
veteran publicity agent of the Canadian Pacific Ka.lway, one of the
best-known and best-loved man in
Canada, whose latest photograph is
herewith reproduced. In his book,
"The Reminiscences of a Raconteur", he says:—■
"It was a momentous event, for it
was the beginning of a service that
has revolutionized the travel of the
world. At the send-off, the immense
throng at tha old Dalhousie Station
was an enthusiastic one, and would
have been more so, but Col. Stevenson's battery was a little late in
arriving to fire the parting salute, and
time, tide and C.P.R. flyers wait for
no ono. There were only two sleepers
attached and thoy were comfortably
filled. The only newspaper mnn
aboard wus myself, and 1 had
written up the trip from Montreal t<
Winnipeg in advance, and :i"tit it by
mail — for I had been on tho road
frequently - only adding (he namei
of the more prominent passong ts bj
wire from Ottawa. When the paper
reached us on the north shore <:
Lake-• Superior, Mr. Dewey, th
superintendent of the postal v rvio
of Canada, who was on hoard, wm
astonished at the length and accuracy of my report, and wondored how
und when I had written It, and as I
did not enlighten him, except to say
that he hud seen me writing on the
'train, his m vilification remained with
him until his death. The irip waa a
glorious one, and the reception ail
along tho line was like n royal pro
Kress. The people of fire-Btrlckcn
Vancouver came over to Port Moody
in great numbers hy the old "Yose-
mlte" to welcome us. Then- was nn
public reception at Vancouver, for
thero wasn't any place to hold one,
the original city having been, almost
totally consumed by fire just pn rioiu
to our arrival. The flames destn y d
almost everything, but the cou
and hope and faith of tho pioi ers
who bravely struggled against
blighting effects of ihe calamity, and
they did this successfully, Ba can be
seen today in the magnifil ■ I i
which haa arisen through tin pi n id
results of their Indomitable energy
and unceasing labours which made
Vancouver whnt it is."

A town planning act was laid on

The beauty of Big Sand Creek, on
tho rod trail to Fernio, Tl miles from
Cranbrook, as a roadside stopping
place, has heen greatly marred by
the falling of a large halm of giload
tree, which gave much shade, and

that point. This tree, shallow-rooted,
fell along by the creek, pointed towards the road, and makes it difficult now to get wator, besides destroying the shade. This is the point
at which Mr. .1. Henderson, formerly
of the Jaffray Hotol, has established
a roadside refreshment place, where
light lunches and summer refreshments of all kinds can bo obtained.

It is now stated that there is some
possibility that tho childrens' recreation grounds, which havo been boosted by the Rotary Club in eo-operalion
with tho city council and other fraternal organizations in the city, may
not he opened for use until next
year. It is folt that this would give
the grounds a better opportunity to
become improved in condition, and
the trees and grass plots would have
a fnr bettor opportunity to get root
well. It is getting late in the season,
nnd it Is felt thnt little would be
gnined by opening the recreation
grounds at this late date, since school

some statement to give out in rognrd
to this before long. I

the publication of the recent grade
! I High School examinations by percentage,   instead   of   hy   aggregate
marks, as was given in the Herald.
.Mr,   11.  L.   Porter hns  made a list
which is published in this issue, giving tho standings by averages,   in-
J stead   of   the   total   marks   gained.
i This  may  be  a   fairer  way  of  presenting the standings, since some of

A prizo fish story comes to light
from Kootenay Landing, where C.P.
R. train crews nre wont to spend
their spare hours in attempting to
lure the shy fish with all manner of
bait, tackle and hooks, thoir catch
ranging from tho tiniest fish allowed
by law to bo taken from the wnter,
to the monster sturgeon, 150 pounds
in weight, or more. This particular
story, however, is not concerned with
big fish, but hungry fish. Tom
Burns, mail man on the Crow train,
and Frank Doodson, had been fishing
for bass the end of last week, and
the former, getting tirod of so little
response, turned his line over to Art
Wallace. Frank Doodson hnd previously had some bites, nnd one fish
succeeded in getting away with his
hook and leader, but apparently the
fish was not satisfied with such a
narrow escape as this, or else did not
reckon with the artifices which Art
Wallace was likely to employ with
his line, for in a few moments the
fish was honked again, bringing to
light Frank Doodson's missing hook
and part of the lino, Queer fish
stories come from Kootenay Landing, nnd people who are in the habit
of questioning the varacity of anglers, are wondering who will como
