Great  Dominion
Day Sport.
Visitors   Say   Cran*
brook is All Right
A Glorious Dny With No Unplcas-
ant Features to Mar thc
People's Fun.
Cranbrook celebrated Dominion day,
and tbe celebration was n record-
breaker fnr Bast Kootenay. Tin.* people
poured in here from every pan of the
listrict. They came liy rail, by stage,
iy wagon, ou eayusei' ami afoot, Fernie
people crowded the special train; Klko,
Cranston and Warduer joined tlietn.
Fort Steele wuh depopulated, and Mnyie
turned out iu full force. They left the
towns, the Ui lues, the prospects nml the
trails to join in the grand jollification,
mnl wben the day closed there was but
sentiment ami one expression
among thc visitors, and lhat was. to Ihe
■•fleet that Cranbrook was all right. The
program of sports was :i good one ami it
well carried out- The day was all
tbat could have been desired from early
morn to dewey eve. ami lo one and all it
was a happy and ii joyful occasion.
At y:.(5. after the arrival of the passenger trains from tlie east and west, a procession was formed under tbe supervision
of A. VV. McViltie, marshal ot" the day,
it was not as large as had been anticipated, owing to tome ol the organizations fai Hug to get in hue.  The baseball
and football hoy-, fulled   to get  together
in time, but hoth teams were represent*
ed, The Fort Steele band took tbe lead,
followed by the bicycle hoys, the hall
players and the Indian band. They
marched up linker street and return and
then to the Athletic association grounds,
«here   the   program   of   the   day   was
opened with the football game between
Fort Steele and Cranhrook, .vhieh re
Milted in a victory for the home team
llie next event was the baseball game
between Fcrute and Cranbrook) and tbe
visitors wenl down in a glorious defeat.
At -' o'clock the afternoon spoils
opened Otl the other grounds notth of
[own, where the lacing truck.-: had been
laid   out.      lleie   one    event    followed
nuother in rapid succession until about
6 o'clock, wben the shoot opened be
Iween hemic and Cranhrook, which resulted til favor of the visitors.
l.alei in llie evening the Uig-of-wnr he
tween Cranhrook and Fori Steele was
pulled  off  on   linker street.      Tbere
was     some     inisundc* standing     owing
lo the Impossibility to hold back the
crowd, nnd as a result the Fort Steele
boys declined to contest and the decision
was given to Craubrook.

Tin- Pod Steele football lea ui mine
over oil Saluiduy alii) was defeated by
the home team by a score of t lo o,
The game was it good one throughout
ami hoth teams showed considerable tut*
pioveliiciit in form and play since their
Inst mulch. The day wns rather warm
for football, still the'hoys of huth teams
went at it wilh a vim and dash that
showed a determination to win if possible.
The gnme started nt 11 a. ui , the Fort
Steele team being somewhat late in arriving. C. M. Edwards acted as referee
and mnde n very impartial one, and was
satisfactory to both tennis.
Fori Steele won the toss and played
with the stm in their hacks. Cranhrook
scored their only goal in the first half.
Billie ROBS got several other pretty hot
ones to stop. The Steele forwards did
some excellent combination work ami
many times got within easy scoring dis*
tance of the Cranbrook goal, hut the
inability to shoot lost them the game.
During the second half the play was
much ihe same nnd waa ns warmly con
tested as during the first. It was during
this half that Steele got their only shot
in on the Crnnbrook Hags, and it came
very near scoring. At the call of time
tbe score still stood i to o, and the mid
als remained in Cranbrook.
The teams arid officials were as follows:     Fort   Steele—Coal,   \V   It   Ross;
backs. McDi-rmot, Wallinger; half-backs,
Betcben, Murphy, Theopold; forward.-*.

The Base Ball tiamc.
The game of Baseball between the
Fernie and Craubrook clubs was a walk
away for the home team. The contest
was tbe first match game of baseball
ever played between two towns in East
Kootenay. The visitors put up a very
good game hut were weak in their pilch- j
ers, ami this gave the Craubrook club a
big advantage. The score stood 31 toy
at the end of five innings when the name
was called to permit the spectator!* lo
lake'in the sports on the race track
Prank Rankin umpired the game and
gave the best uf satisfaction. The players and positions were as follows:

Al Brown wore a sweeping cap of Black,

The date for receiving Bids for Builu-

Monday, July io, and Blank forms for

out to prospective Bidders. The follow-

Messrs. R-jid. McRae, McCarty, Mc-
Crimmon and McDonald are tbe contractors who have been waiting here for
the p.ist two week?, and Mr. E. Kgan,
inother well-known contractor, arrived
last evening. It is quite probable that
ill : these ge-.'.leweu will bid on the
work. The form of tenders calls for
bids En lwo sections, the first from Cran-
brook i" St Marys, and the second from
St. Marys to the terminus of the line,
and also provides that the work shall lie
:oni[ieted hy the 15th of October. This
would indicate that the company pro-
z-j-cs to pu*h ihe work forward as rapidly as possible, so as to get at the tonnage
wui'.i-:g for them in the Kimberley district. It is, therefore, reasonable to
suppose that no time will be lost after
the bids are received. One of the contractors in the city staled to a representative of The Herald that if any of
■±v bids were accepted contracts could
e-.-.;;;. be awarded in four or five doys.
It vculd be necessary then for lhe men
who got the contracts to return snd get
their ou:iV.s here, which would take
about two weeks more. In any event,
work could Be uuder headway by August
first, or very soon after.
The people of Cranbrook have been
waiting patiently but anxiously for this
work, but they fully realize that it is
not only a good thing for Cranbrook,
but fur the whole district as well. It

"False, yes! But I would give all I

"Look nt that!" said Robert, opening
a small velvet case he took from hia

"It Is beautiful! Lovely] Oneofthi

"And mind and heart are as Beautiful,

"I enn easily believe it. The. expression is pure and sweet, jls a babe's."
"Yet you just called her a little monster."
"Bob! You cannot mean that she,
the original of this miniature, is deformed."
"Yes. Hhe wus crippled in childhood
—by me."
"She is a connection of mine, a stepchild of my uncle, and when we were
children we spent our summer together, us 1 was a yearly guest at Owl's

1 was a young1 man, in the full vigor
ot health, and, while ray conscience
udd me very plainly taut 1 owed my
lite to May Talbot, my bei.rt shrank
from the only way in which I could
otter it. Common sense spoke very
plainly. Only us my wife eould 1 give
to May the tender care, the love, that
might throw some gladness Into her
life.   And I, like a coward, thought of
the long misery of my own life tied to
a deformed woman that I did not love.
So 1 eame home, a slave in my own idea
io my duty, and resolved to wear my
chains bravely. It waa summer weather again wben I went to owl's Nest.
and, to my surprise, lhe house was full
of guests, most of them young people.
I think thai May must have gathered
Homethlug Of my intention from my
let 1 era, for she wns no longer a child,
nnd suffering hud made her Wuuitinly
.veil beyond her years. I oiilj guessed
this from her manner, I had expected
to meet a frank, cousinly welcome, for
our correspondence had Been like that
of an affectionate Brother and sister.
But May was dignified und even chilling In her greeting, it was soon evident to me that she was trying to thrust
other ladies who were lier guests upon
my eiiiv, and to avoid me as fur na possible."
"Hm wus she repulsive,Bob?"
"itepulslve! She was far from it, my
poor illtlilllg. Keeling her deformity.

"ll'iu! Nut an unnatural fear. Hut
niy dear fellow, when you found your
self so persistently snubbed, why did
you not leave her? You hud done ull
your conscience required."
"Hut not all my heart desired! One
dny, when she wus not more grnclqm
than usual, I mude her a downright offer of marriage. She wus furious! She
said I insulted her! Nothing eould convince her thut 1 was not trying to make

Of the many freak communications
which reach the capitol and the departments one whleh came to tbe house
just before it adjourned is deserving of
the proverbial biscuit. The letter was
addressed to "The Congress of the
United States in Washington Assembled," and cume from a resident of u
small settlement In northeastern Texas.
It was written in un entirely earnest
spirit,  it suid:
"Dear Mister Congressmen: My dear
wife Amanda has just Been Blest By the
appeurunce of a healthy young boy. Me
and my wife can't agree on no name to
give the Boy and we want you to help US
out. 1 wants him called Dave and she
wants bim culled Cy, but she won't give
in neither will 1. Now what we want
you to do is to have a document passed
through your body giving him 0 handle,
flense attend tu tiie mutter as soon as
possible.   Yours."
The only person around tbe house to
whom the letter could have gone
through the regular system of diBsem-
Inutlng the miscellaneous moll was the
private secretary of Congressman
Bailey. He communicated the contents
of the letter to a uuniBer of the employes around the house. The other
afternoon the secretary sent out a number of typewritten letters tu a dozen or
more employes, enjoining them lo meet
in one of the committee rooms.
When the clerks assembled, he proposed that they, as ll substitute house Of
representatives in committee of the
whole should attend to the very urgent
communication which he hud received,
and that a suitable name should be selected for the growing young Texan.
Accordingly u set of resolutions, sticklers in their form und precision, were
drafted, with seal attached and signature properly fixed, and sent to the
writer. They informed the Texan that
the congreSB had taken cognizance of
his communication, uud hud acted accordingly. "The congress, exercising a
power which was vested in it by the law
of 1884," suid the resolutions, "hereby
designates, denominates, titles und
■allies your offspring after three distinguished scions of the ixjlie Star. Let
it be known thut his name shall be

a niik'Iii Mistake.
An enthusiastic member of the Society For tbe Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, whose short si^ht and big
heart are in diametrically opposite proportions, had a peculiar experience the
other day. Ho was walking down Pry-
tan In street and noticed what seemed to
be tho members of a household assembled around a small bonfire in a yard
adjoining a cottage. They were apparently deeply engrossed in some unusual
proceeding, und a very peculiar, dense
black smoke was arising rrom the lire.
Tim scene was so idd that thc good
man stopped to look. when, to bis horror, a half grown boy in the crowd suddenly produced a large Maltese cat and
thrust the animal directly Into the henrt
of the smoka
"I wonder if tbat will do it." said a
woman who was looking on

"You cruel villain!" be screamed,

The boy looked around with open
mouth "Mind yonr own business, yuu

"My own business!" exclaimed the
member of the Society For tin* Proven*
tion of Cruelty to Animals, boiling
over with rage "Tliis is my business,

The boy glared at bim in apparent
stupefaction, but the woman began tu

diving into the smoke and drawing
forth tlie animal by the tail. "See! It's

The humanitarian's jaw dropped. He
wiped bis forehead, and the group snick-

No ont- can be hoe It by with lhe kidneys

poisonous Trie At-id which it is their
duty lo filter out of the blood, is carried
Into the system uud produces Rheumatism, Headaches, Backaches aud hundreds of ills nnd ailments.
Anyone who has the slightest suspicion
that tin- kidneys are nut acting right
should take Doan's Kidney fills. They
are tbu moat effective kidney remedy

Snyder's Bhoo Store, Berlin, Uut., bears
this out when he BUyBi
' 'Anyone suffering with kidney troubles
