Constable Moody went to Calgary on
Tuesday after a man McKenzie, who
wns accused of stealing IliO from one
McArthur, two or three dnys ago. Mr.
Moodie returned on Thursday with the
prisoner, who, at the preliminary examination which was held that afternoon, confessed everything. He was
sent down to Donald to await trial.
Our fruit store is a thing of the
past. Mr. A. F. McCuily having been
offeiel a station on the C.P.R. decided
to accept and on Tuesday night he
packed up his goods and left for the
west the next morning. Mr. McCuily
was, pieviousto his ooming to Golden,
an operator on the C.P.R. He takes
with him the best wishes of the residents of Golden.
We would call the attention of the
authorities to the condition of the
tramway bridge. A few boards have
been laid down for the convenience,
we presume, of pedestrians. Several
of these boards are loose and it is
really dangerous to cross the bridge on
a dark night. The whole thing will
hnve to be covered in before winter or
some one will be sure to step between
the timbers und break a leg or something else.
The Gun Club held a practice on
Wednesday afternoon, and the scoring
was ridioulously poor. It was even
wome than the scores whicli some
of the boys made at the picnic on Saturday. What makes them worse is
the fact that those who made poor
scores on Saturday were greenhorns,
while the poor shooting on Wednesday
was done by the "cracks."������ viie'bnly
man who made anything like a score
was Mr. E. Plowright, who made 10
out of a possible 14. We do not wish
to be too hard on the "cracks" so
therefore refrain from publishing the
score, but we would udvise them to
see that it does not occur again.

Dan McGillivruy, returned from 11
trip over the finished portion of the
Nakusp & Slocan railway in company
with Engineer Gamble. He says that
50 tons ol ore art: lining shipped daily
oyer the road from the Alpha mine.
It is sent (rom the mine to Silvertou,
on the lake, and from there to Rosebery
station, where it is loaded on the train.
The output, it is expected, will be
doubled inside of a couple of weeks.
I is fully expi-cti-d that the rails will
be laid into Three Forks by Oct. 1st.
At that point there ure 1,000 tons
awaiting shipment. Thu output of
"ttiu Slocan mines this season is expect*
eijl to be about 15,000 tens. A better
feeling is now taking place and claims
are to be worked vigorously in view of

The steamship Colon of the Pacific mail
line was only twenty-four hoursout f rem
the Isthmus, but already four convivial
spirits had formed a friendship, and
were seated iu the smoking ruoui talking
of the business and pleasure that marked
thi ir years of life in different countries
of South America, for all hud come from
points below the equator.
It was 11 o'clock. A quiet little poker
game hail passed time for a while, bnt
the cards had laid untouched on the
table for nn hour. The night was lovely, hardly a ripple could bu seen on the
moon -frosted water, and the Colon
(urged ahead as if crossing n 'Kind,
throwing aside a phosphorecont spray
and kicking np a swirl of fire with her
propeller as she kuuouud off tuuiteeu
knots nn hour.
It was the perfect night that hail induced the four occupants of the smoker
to leave their cards and sit beside tbe
large door, where they could look over
the vessel's rail and at the same time
converse together.
John Devine, a civil engineer who had
been working along the line of the
Oroya railroad in Peru, had lieen telling
abont the marvellous construction of
this roadway, and had identically remarked that during all the time he
speut in South America he had uot seen
a wild animal except one small tiger,
and that far in the interior. As he
mentioned this, one of the party was
noticed to draw back and siiuuucr as if
" vVhat is it, Captain? Let's have the
story," said an American consul, who
was going home on leave, "I'll warrant
there's something rather interesting if
yon wonld tell it."  .
"Yes, let's hear iti" chimed ia the
other two.
Capt. Paul lit-hted a second long, black
cheroot and replied: "Well, it's a curious yum, and I sometimes wonder
whether I really pnsied through ft all ��� r
not, but when it seems only a dream to
me all I have to do is to look into my
trunk. There is something there thnt
is a vivid reminder of the night
I will tell you about, that so nothing I will show yon iu the morning.
"I .* course, gentlemen, you know that
Mrs. Paul accompanies me, bnt 1 don't
suppose that vou have noticed my 8 year-
old son who is cored for Ity a Peruvian
"1 have." remarked the consul, "and
a sturdy looking fellow he is."
"When the lad was a ten-months old
baby," continued tbe captain, "I was
ordered to G uttyaquil, Ecuador. As you
prohtibly know. I have been representing
marine underwriters in South America,
having been sent there to prevent agents
for damaged ships making too expensive
repairs nt our expense. 1 had been sent
by my employers to superintend work
on a steamer which hnd sunk in tho
Guayaquil river ut that point.
"It meant four months' stay at that
hot little town sixty miles from the
sea count,, and to I at onou runted a
little furnished house two miles from
the city and installed my wife, baby
and servants there., I bought a good
horse and rode back and forth everv
morning and eveni tig. It wis hot and the
mosquitoes wore plenty, to say nothing
about fleas, bnt onr little place-was so
light and open that It caught any breeze
that might be going, and life was nut
half bad thorn. The hones hail only six
rooms, and all were on the ground floor,
but they were sufficient. I frequently
told Mrs. Paul tli.il it was damrerous lo
leave any of the doors ajar at night, for
although burglars are not to be leured
iu Ecuador, yet once in a while animals
came ont of the jungle, and they hud
been si-en near the city. Bnt as time
iiaxsetl nnd nights became wuriuer wo
loth inew cureless.
"One day I hail lieen detained in town,
and it was nearly midnight when I
mounted my horse to return, for thero
had lieen a survey held that day on the
steamer, which by this time had lieen
raised, nnd I waited to hear the report.
Tho night was a perfect one, much
like this. I had iiioouli-rht to cheer
my way nntil near home, hut the
last rays came over the hill as I
rode past the house, and they just showed ins that the f rout door was half open.
'I must have these doors closed at night,'
thought I as I role into thu stable, and
taking off Tom's saddle I threw him
some hay aud walked book to the cottage.
" You are all aware how carefully a
man walks when he enters a house
where a year-old baby is. ��� inaeea, it is
.self-preservation in many cases. And
in this instance I did what many a
father haa* done before me, 1 took oil nny
shoes ou the doorstep. Hy room wns
the first one off the hall and I entered it
on tiptoe and stole alongside of thu bed.
There was a peculiar little wheezing
noise coming from one side of the bed.
It was pitch dark in the room, but I
knew that baby was there. At first I
thought I would go into my wife's room
in tlie front pi the house, hut oai sUnv-
ly undressed I argued that her placing
the baby in my bed proved that she had
had a pretty bad evening, so I decided
to crawl in beside the youngster and no*
disturb thu mother. I undressed noiselessly and, donning my nightgown, lay
down on the opposite site of the bed
from the baby. As the night was warm
I did not pull even a sheet over me.
Buster still kept up a loud breathing,
but it didn't disturb me, though as I
fell asleep I remember thinking that he
soeiiieii inure suufHy than usual.

" 'Cngh I' A weight hod fallen across
my chest. I didn't muke this exclain*
ution aloud. I had been In training as
a paturfuiuilias too long for tb.it.   liulf-
swake. I realized that Buster had thrown
himself across n,y lody. I (lowly
pilled one arm ont. then molt hold of
him gently to lift him off without wnlt-
inn him. 'Strange how long and hairy
Bu tor's head Is,' I thought.
"Did you ever read 'Alice m Wonderland?"
"Well, I had mnch the same sensations as are described In thnt book, fnr.
as I slowly passed my hand along my
baby's hiinil, it seemed as if it wi *
drawn out for yards. At last ireacb.il

"Just then tbe teeth curled themselves np.
"Whether It wns thnt motion nr what.
I never shall know, bnt in an instant I
was wMe awake as I ever was, and in
another moment I reulizod that tliu baity
was uot in bed with me. bnt that the
heavy object that lay across my chuni,
was the hind paw of a large animal.
I hud sei'.'U enough to lit- pT'crt.ly
still. How could I have mistaken that
hoarse breathing for the baby's iioiisli
little snore! Jnst because 1 said ui myself thnt it was the baby.
"I can't describe my feelings as I lay
there. . First I grow cold nud uiy s'tin
seemed to shrivel np in horror*. My
nerves contracted so thnt It was positive

'lay of thu laud' My head didn't worii

Try as 1 might, it was impossiule fur
me to remember which sido ol ihe room
my lied faced. Of course tho only thing
to no was to Ho still until there \vu..
t'uongh light to see the dour, and in the
meantime to pray that the obj' ut la'i i in

some enormous beast occupied part oi*

the bnby wonld cause the brute Is-slde
mu to awuke, but at that muuieut his
lumber's soothing voice quieted bim.
.Those words of Mrs. Paul's never suuu.-
ed so sweet, never so musical.

had lain in one imsition, nut even duriinr

"A faint glow appeared at the side of

'Only a few seconds more,' I said to myself. Slowly thu objects in the room
began to stand out, and finally I could
outline the door which woso, '*nsite tlm

left to tell her to call the men, and in a
few miuutet tht gardener and the stnblu
I  . V
boy came in.
I . "I sent for a rope and in a few- moments we had the door fastened. Thero
waa a rifle in my wife's room, fortunately, and ordering the gardener to get a
ladder, I sent Mrs. Paul with Buster tu
the stable, for I was tearful that the
brute would breakthrough the par.ition.
Then without stopping to put ou any
clothes, which, by the war, I ronld not
have done, as they were all in my room,
I hurried around the side of thu honso
and climbed up the ladder to my open
window, which was ubout six feet from
the ground, and was more .of a port hole
than anything else. I must have lieen a
peculiar spectacle standing there in my
bobtailed nightshirt with my repeating*
rifle to my shoulder.
"I soon caught sight of the brute's eyes
and fired. There was a yell and a crash.
The animal bad jumped for me. Completely unstrung by the terrible hours I
had passed, I fell from the ladder, ami.
knocking the gardener off his feet wu both
rolled 011 the ground. He was certain
that the animal bad him, and his cries
caused Mrs. Paul to run from the stable,
she believing that we were both being
killed. In my fall I sprained my ankle,
and when 11 tried to get up 1 fuiuied
from the pain.
"A half hour later I found myself lying in my wife's bed and a doctor standing beside me. After I had fainted Mm.
Panl, who���by the way is a very clover

which was nearly dead by that time, for
my bullet had entered its brnin."

this, however, quite a  number of pic-; -.ne gcores .  ,

with mud, etc., and the crowd was so
large that they could not all find seats
on the benches which had been placed
on board for the accommodation of the
passengers, two-thirds ol them had to
bang on the best wny they could.
Notwithstanding these serious draw-
hacks the ride to the wharf was thoroughly enjoyed by nil.    When all were

The Gun Club then proceeded to hnve
the "shoot," as advertited, "at the

in the least to say, (not wishing to
hurt anyone's feelings,) that it would
be a difficult mutter for some of them
even to hit the mill. Two mutches

"Betsy's" return it was found that Dainard
the party consisted of  no less a per*I Russell
sonage than Mr. J. C. Greene; rather
u large party certainly, but not sufficiently large to justify the delay caused
through his neglect to appear at the
scene of action on time. While waiting at the wharf some of the would-be
sportsmen amused themselves by tiring
at objects iu the river and consequently
a number of ���'bulls" were made. The
thoughtnlness of some of the fair sex
(at least we suppose it was the fair sex
as we do not think the opposite sex
would be guilty of any such action) in
supplying, gratis, boquets for the picnickers, deserves special mention, some
of which were completely "out of
sight," at least the individuals who
supported them were. We cast off
Irom the wharf at 11 o'clock and
steamed slowly np the river past the
boom. Some of the "younger heads"
were particularly anxious to display
their skill with the poles in keeping
the steamer off the bank. One young
man in attempting to shove a log out
of the way, lost his pole and nearly
lost his balance, much to the amusement of the spectators. The pole was
recovered after strenuous efforts on the

At 4 o'clock the Captain signalled
for nil to get on board, but as usual we
experienced another delay, it wouldn't
have been a picmo unless we had to
wait for somebody. Two of the boys
had gone out shooting, but failed to
bag anything, (except probably their
trousers). About half past four a
start for home was made and everything went smooth all the way. Dancing was kept up all the way home.
It would not do to forget to mention
the " belle of the picnic," as far as the
dance was concerned. We ure certain
the ladies will  agree  with us in onr
choice of "Miss Campbell" for the
honor. It would be useless for us to
attempt to give a description of her
dress and her manner was so bewitch
ing us to captivate the hearts of half
the j onng fellows on hoard. We
reached the "Golden shore" shortly
after six o'clock, when "Betty "uud
the flat car were again nulled into
requisition to convey the picnickers to
town, where they soon dispersed to
their various places of abode, one ami
all loud in their praises of the success
of the picnic.

The Hospital Board acknowledge
with thanks the receipt of:
Potatoes and cut flowers from Mr.
A. Mitchell.
Flannel and shirts from Mr. Cniinan.
Flannel for dressing gown from Mrs.
Maple Syrup from Mr. Warren.
Our " intelligent" compositor made
a grievous mistake iu the hospital acknowledgements last week. Mr. Con-
Ditcher's donation was not, as stated,
"Gent's Whiskers." but a gallon of
whiskey. We beg Mr. C.'s pardon
and ho|ie the public will excuse the
V-coinii." as it happened just "after
the ball."
