"The Vernon and Armstrong clubs
were anxious for the match, but other
inferior teams did not appear to take
much interest in the matter. Donald

present, add Kamloops which was
communicated with on August 5th,

It is foolish for Mr Plowright to
talk of Golden not having enough say
in the Hospital, it has now practically
all the say and should be well content
to receive a subsidy which is meant

says, (and it is about the only correct
statement in his letter,) a meeting for

Golden, B.C., 24th Aug., 1895.
Editor GOLDEN Ell A:
Sir,���In your issue of to-day there
is along letter signed "Edward Plow-
right." Under ordinary circumstances
it had better remain unanswered because, in tbe first place, everybody
knows "Teddy," "the only gentleman
in East Kootenay," according to the
Voters list, and again because most of
his statements are palpably false.
Nurse Simpson was not discharged
for "not having a sufficiently pleasant
manner for the ladies of East Kootenay," nor as a matter of fact has she
been discharged at all.
There has been no complaint whatever brought before the directors, nor
would tbey look for such. They pretend to keep themselves informed as to
tbe work of the Hospital, and if they
find any obstaoleto its usefulness they
try to remove it. It is not true that a
member of the board has resigned.
The resolution referred to was passed
without a protest.
The Golden Hospital is an East
Kootenay Hospital, and it was principally at my suggestion that tbe electors of new directors should not be
those who subscribed $5 or $10 or even
1100 towards the building, but those
who were subscribers for the current
yeur. At the time I yvas considering
the case of the Company which I represent. I had given (00 and the Company 91C0, but it seemed to ine that
the men whom we employed and who
were more or leas forced to pay seventy-
five cents a month towards the maintenance, should have as much to say
in its management as I had. My ideas
were adopted and now all yearly subscribers and tioket holders are voters.
It is a very great pity that this discussion has arisen. It can do nothing but barm te the Hospital and to
Miss Simpson, against whom there is
uo couiplaim.    -
Iteprodnced by Wire,
Telegraphic reproduction of electrotypes for  newspaper  printing  is the
latest achievement of electrical invention.   The innovation is very remarkable, and consists in the transferring
and   reproducing  of  exactly similar
newspapers in different cities by tele-,
graph.   A Berlin paper can by the use
of  this  machine, appear  in  all the
larger cities of Germany at  the same
hour in the  morning  without  being
sent through the mails.     The inventors claim for their apparatus not only
increased rapidity, but tbey say that
it  will  reduce the cost of printing.
The inventors  and patentees, Messrs.
C. Meray���Hervatb and C.  Roar, at
Gratz, describe  the  working of  the
apparatus as follows:     The  copy ia
first of  all  run  off on a typewriter,
next to the type-written copy, which
serves as corrector's  proof, a special
attachment releases a narrow strip of
silvered paper, which is covered by a
number of short strokes and, constituting an alphabet peculiar to this machine.     These  strokes  and dots are
made by means  of  a chemical  fluid,
which so changes the metallic surface
of the paper that it becomes non-conductive.     Any  corrections becoming
necessary can be made  on the strip of
silver paper, insertion or cutting out
of copy is also easily performed. After-
being edited   and  corrected   the long,
strip of silvered paper is rolled up on a,
spool and inserted  into a telegraphic
apparatus, yvhich when set in motion,
will reproduce the same strokes and
dots on similar  silvered paper at any
distance and in any number of apparatus  connected   at   the  same  time.
These  strips   of  silvered   paper  are
placed into the "Electric Typograph."
The strip passes beneath six points of
electric  contact,  covering  the entire
width of  the metallic surface.     This
typogra| h   operates   in   such  a way
that the  steel type  representing each
character is impressed upon a prepared
cardboard in the  proper order,     An
automatic mechanism provides for the
varying width  of   the   type, for   the
spacing   and   alignment, and   for the
moving of lhe cardboard at tbo end of
the line.   The cardboard fully covered
with   characters   represents one soiid
column of copy, and il is ready for the
electroty-er.     As compared with ihe
typesetting machines now in use this
apparatus gives the advantage of correcting and  editing   the  entire copy
from   ty-iewritten   proof-sheets.    The
inventors   claim   for   lhe   typograph
that it will  do the work of  eight expert ty|>esetters ami save two-thirds of
the cost of  setting   up   the  copy by
hand.���Chicago Tribune.

SATURDAY, AUG. Ill, 1895.
A Summer's Amusement.
One sultry August, about six years
ago, two young men left the Piedmont
Air Line Railway, at Spnrtanshurgh ;
and hiring a couple of stout mules,
started on nn exploring tour up thro'
the mountains of Northern Georgia.
They spent a yveek in the shadow of
Moun,t Tonnh ; and then began to
yveury of the adventure.
"As for game, that's all humbug,"
said Schoeppel, ivho was a stou', florid
young fellow, with aggressive tnous-
tachios, and a suspicious black eye.
"That's humbug. I hadn't much
faith in it, when Pettit told us of it.
And-as for the magnificence of the
.scenery, it's fine enough. But what
can I do yvith cloud effects and gloomy
precipices? I'm wasting time, here.
So ure you, for that matter."
The men both called themselves artists
in New York. Schoeppel yvas a painter of "bits"���a fence corner, with a
pair of fighting ceefcs; a mossy stone,
and bulbous toad upon it squatted in
the sun, etc., etc. The misty peaks
and shelving abysses of these mountains, impressed him as badly done���
as course, big daubs; a kind of scene
painting, in a word.
Deems, his companion, a thin, sedate
man, the elder of the two, yvas ostensibly a figure painter; but he really
earned his living bv designing the
"funny pictures" for one of the weekly
illustrated papers. You have, no
doubt, laughed at his absurd sketches,
niany a time.
"I like it here, Schoeppel." he sltid,
in a peculiar, lazy, low voice. "Don't
let's go to tho towns, just yet.""
" Why, you've not made a character
sketch in a yveek."
" No; but I like to be outside of the
shop for awhile." -'*������'*	
They jogged or in silence, for
awhile. Then Schoeppel begun again,
- '     ���    1
Thoy rode slowly down. A half-
linked negro, hceiug corii in the river

Haunted thick, viscous leaves in'h'is
fane, and its steins yvere enormous,
black, snnke-liko trunk, distorted all
along his path. The Yucca, his frail,
dainty, old favorite, roared itself hero
into a tree, hung yvith royal white
bells, and weighting tbe air', with
heavy odor. ��� But the thing seemed
insolent to hiin. He could have thrust
it biick, as though it had been a human being, a modest woman grown vulgar. Deems had been ill before he loft
home; he was, perhaps, unusually
impressible now, and nervous. When
he reached the-foot of the hill, Schoeppel yvas yvaiting forhim. They went
oil through the unbroken silence.
"There ought to bo a Dr. Gourlny,
somewhere in this neighborhood,"said
Schoeppel. "Pettit gave us letters to
bim. I'll ride' 011 to this house and
see if they knoiv anything about him.
Wait for me here."
He turned off into the opening of the
wagon-road, leading to tho'house.
Deems dismounted, tied his bridle to
the fence, und- sat down to,sketch the
grotesque vine-trunks.
"I cannot shake off the impression
that they M'esnakes.charnied to sleep,"
hc said.
Schoeppel nodded. "Tho whole
valley seemsr. asleep. It's this hot,
uunililiiig air, I suppose. I wonder if
any civilized human beings live there.
No roads-no mails-no neighbors!
Tlie monotony of it would drive ine
mad in a week."
He rodo on to the house, and Deems
began to sketch. Suddenly a woman
rose from behind the pile of logsou
which he sat, and came round in front
of him. In New York, he would have
promptly noted her queer sunbonnet
and purple calico dress for use in
caricature j but here'he saw only her
lean, sallow face, and large, liquid
eyes. He was just iu the'condition to
be startled and touched by them.
She. .stood, looking nt his quick-
moving fingers, with perfect quietude
and self-possession.     Her   dress was
there was such vast tracts, so near,
yet given over to wild beasts. Hillo !
There is yet a farm that looks a littlo
like civilization. But did you ever
see such absolute torpor?"
Th<*y pulled np their mules on the
brow of the hill, looking down into
the valley. The Chatoogu river, a
bright, curiously sluggish stream, lay
coiled through it; the hills that yvalled

De.ems���wus lhe least self-possessed of
the two. . ...  .
"Are you sketching?" she said, at
last. ���       ������
It yvas a loiv voice, it pleased him.
He yvas a connoisseur.in voices.,
"Yes." .,������-.
"I never saw any one handle pencil

dark unvaried tint. A large, unpaint-
ed, wooden house, closely hedged about
with piggeries, cotton gin, and negro
quarters, wns set down in the middle
of the valley. Dull patches of tobacco
plant, and others still red with the
cotton bloom, stretching down to the
river; whilethe multitudinous delicate
gree spears of the rice fields' showed
through the water with which they
had been flooded. Tliere yvas a heavy,

awkward little - bow, which seemed
oddly putheticto him. " I never sa.w
a picture; except tho colored ..lithographs, -which the newspapers send
out as premiums." ,   *   ,...,.,
- "That is - hard measure, madam,"
stammered Deems. He had risen, and
was standing, with his hat in his
hand. "But what doyo*i want with
pictures ? You ... have ��� this , strange
wonderful landscape," glancing about
him.- ;        ....    . ,..,.
"You .did not .speak..in.that way

"No, I did not say that. It. wus

"No matter. You leel it more than

"Yet you have only, been in tbo valley

As sho spoke, ihe loosened tho
strings of the. stttibouuet which she
wore, and took it olf. Deems . had
supposed ber to be a middle-aged
woman. He now found her'to bo
young; her hair yvas of a pule brown,
lino aud abundant; it seemed to him
to lie oddly alive-sentient, ns . yvere
her eyes. He did not notice the rest
of her face or body.
"I often wonder," sho said, "how

looked directly iu his face, "the horrible ignorance of it. No mntter what

George Deems tapped his sketchbook nervously. He ivus a very conventional prudent fellow. He had
lived iu tho houso with women, in
Flushing, for years, and never exchanged a ivord with them, be-
yrlid. the news of the iveuthei- or of
village gossips. Yet, in five minutes,
this woman yvas baring her life to

directness? He lelt a titillutioii.of excitement, singularly agreeable.
"I scarcely credit your assertion,
madam," he said. -Of yourself I can
say nothing. But yonder is 11 man
who, I am sure, is neither ignorant
nor vulgar." nodding towards a spare
man, coarsely dressed in butternut
hciucspuii, , who came towards them
with Schoeppel. He wore 11 ragged,
straw hat, but the head beneath it
was nobly shaped, and the face wus
full of-.quiet humor, and line, delicate
meanings.       ���".'���-.
"That is no boor," said Deems, energetically.
"Oh, no," she. said, with a little
laugh. "He is only a country doctor,
learned in measles and lumbago. He
has been shut up liko myself in these
hills, ull his life, as in 11 goal. He is
willing to stay.    It suits him."
Deems, eyeing her furtively, made a
hasty sketch of heron his thumb-nail.
Her unaccountable confidence touched
him; but then what 11 capital figure
she was for a caricature ! Practice of
his trade had become a second nature
with hlm,
"That is my husband," she said.
"That is Dr Gourlny," and turning
abruptly, she went to the house by a
side path.
Deems went forward to meet the
man, feeling as if he bad been detected
in pruyvliug through the doctor's
closets. What right had tbe woman
to open her secrets to bun ? He would
leave this farm as scon as ho could
find his mule.
��� "Hello, Deems!*' called Schoeppel.
"We've struck ore at lust! Here is
Dr. (loui-lay, und I have promised we
yvill stay a yveek yvith him."
Deems protested, but the doctor,
ivho hnd a peculiarly gentle, decisive
manner,-was urgent,
. "I cannot let you go, geutlemeii,"
lib said. "Mr. Pettit yvroto promising
us a visit from you. Iu justice to
myself I shall claim it. Why you
hnve no idea Of the loneliness of this
life we loud. It is three mouths since
a white face, except our own, hns been
seen on the plantation. Besides, I
must present you to Mrs. Gourlav."
��� ''Wo shall bo.most happy," mumbled Schoeppel. But Deems was silent.
He did not knoiv whv he could not
frankly, say. to the doctor that ho
already .had m;t his yvifo. An hour
Inter, too,, when ho suiv Mrs, Gourlny
atiho diniiei'-tublo, she received him
us.a stranger, and there yvas not a
gleam on the young man's grave eye
to remind her of her confidences in.the
lane. . SJie bad put on her best dress
for the occasion. It yvas a faded, yellow  silk, made years ago;   she had
twisted, somo cheap black luce
about her hair. The. young artist
found them picturesqiie.and attractive;
tho more probably that she scarcely
spoko. Her face was fndod and yveary
but her eyes, yvhen she raised them,
madejt suddenly luminous with energy and passion.
Schoeppel jeered nt her in his usual
vulgar fashion, when he and Deems
were alone. "The whole scene would
have told in a farce," he snid. "The
dirty table-cloth, the ill-cooked, sloppy
meal; tho dumb woman, languidly
picking 11 mouse), ivitli the air of a
captive queen ; tbo forlorn children,
tumbling about under foot; and thai
poor little niati, still iu love with his
wife, anxiously watching every motion of her eyelash."
"And ibeir guests laughing ntt.iein,"
added Deems, quietly. "Yes, it is a
pitiful picture enough."
Suhoepi ii grunted, good linn oredly,
"Bali! you can't snub me. What yvi,��
that stage-whisper which the Captive
Princess gave you after diini'-r?"
"Wo discussed the cotton crop, I
think,*' said Deems, coldly.
Schoeppel eyed him shrewdly a
moment, ' ���     ��� ���   ' "'"   '���������-.
������Go on, Georgn." lis said, bursting
into 11 coarse laugh. ��� "We're a long
ivay from home. I'll Uot spoil sport."
Deems replied, angrily. He bud 11
vague feeling that he was, somehow,
being entangled against bis yvill. Yet,
by yvhom? The "stage-whisper" had
fully explained tlie poor lady's eccentricity, at their first meeting.
"You need not n-y to hide yourself
from us," she bad said, yvith awed,
admiring eyes. "We know who you
are. Mr. Pettit told us of your fame,
of your great works."
"Poor child!" said Deems to himself
yvith a conscious laugh. "She has
lived here, without congenial companionship, eating her own heart out,
until a miserable draughtsman like
ine if a demi-god in her byes, '--lie
was ready, as soon us she met me, in
pour out her life-long trouble."
Deems w-us not a vain man, but it wns
his first experieiiro ns a demi-god, and
lie (ouud it decidedly pleasant. A
few moments Inter Dr. Gourlay found
him with his pipe, in lhe garden.
"The truth is, Mr. Deems,'1 ho sni,i
presently, "I had a selfish motive in
urging you to stay. I knew you
through Mr. Pettit, and hoped for help
and advice from you. My wife���" he
"I shall bo glad to help you or her,"
said Deems, gently. "Mrs. Gourlny-"
"Yes. She is a poetess. She really
has surprising . power, Mr.. Deems.
Sho yvrites in prose, also. Tales, essays, reveries. But I prefer her poems.
We are so shut out of tho world, you
see. We knoiv nothing of publishers.
If you would look over her MSS., nnd
give your candid opinion on her chances of success."
To whatever farm house Deems
went, he found aspiring artists, ready
yvith their daubs for applause. But he
had never been bored by aspiring nu-
thors before.
He smiled, complacently. "Art is
my field, not literature," he answered.
"But ono has 11 general idea���I shall
be delighted to look over Mrs. Gourlay's poems. She has the bearing of a
woman of genius."
���'Ah! you see that! I yvas quite
sure you woulil," laid the pleased littlo
man. "She has theso high, aesthetic
tastes and longings, sir, waich I am
not able 10 gratify. Our income is
small. I four, at times, she is not
quite happy in tills valley. If sho hud
fume, recognition from the world, she
would find life very different,"
"Very different," said Deems, hosi*
"There sho is, in the arbor,'' added
the doctor. "She has her poems with
her. If you yvill join her, I yvill go
finish my pipe with Mr  Schocp-ol."
As Deems stepped up into the arbor,
the yvomun's eager eyes turned on him
yvith a humble reverence.     The vines
of heavy Summer roses clustered nbout
her.. Deems, strangely moved rby her
humility, his pulses.beating faster than
usual, pushed the roses back?_ud.sat
down beside her.
The next moriiing.-Mr.IJV-ems sent,
away a package of manuscript to a
friend, yvho yvas an editor. "We
shall hear from it inside of a week,"
be told the doctor. The young-.men
then settled themselves qdietly doyvn
in tho farmhouse; Schoeppel going
out daily hunting with-the doctor;
while Deems painted, and Mrs. Gourlay talked or read 10-hiin. They
found the arbor nerved 'admirably us a
studio. .

Gould Talks Yiiolitliip*.
New York, Aug. 24.- Tho American
liner Paris carried among her passengers G J Gould, oyvner of the Vigilant,
who sayv the Valkyrie IM., race 011
the other side. He talked freely on
yachting and other matters. Speaking
of the race on the Clyde yvhen the Val-
kyrn I'oat the Britannia by 1!) minutes
over ,'. 40 mile course, Ire snid the Valkyrie won fairly, It wns true tlio
Britannia and Ailsa did have a series
of luffing matches between them during the race und both yvere doubtless
retarded considerably on that account,
but even then Valkyrie still wou by a
large margin. Mr Gould was asked
how he considered the chances of the
Valkyrie against the Defender. Ho
replied, "I have no doubt the Valkyrie
is the fastest boat in Europe in light
weather. I have seen her sail and
know from those observations she is
wonderfully stvift. I have not seen
her in a strong wind, but have been
told by others yvho have had a look at
her, under those conditions, that she
is quite tender." "Hoiv do tho English people consider their chances for
winning the cup this year?" asked the
reporter. 'I don't know tbat they aro
very confident," replied Mr Gould. "I
thi ik tneir feeling is rather one of
hope than certainty."

Sonus tor A Contralto Voloe.
Tho contralto voice is best adapted to
solo singing, but it may be excellently
combined in duets yvith the soprano and
tenor, yvrlten Jessie ���Iirtlett-Dnvls in a
practical article on the "Usos of a Contralto Voice," in thc Ladles' Homo
Journal. In solo selection the voice seems
to peculiarly adapt itself to sacred music,
and to the dramatic and more serious
styles of ballad, t-acrcd songs, dramatic
or pathetic ballads, love songs and lullabies seem the especial Held of the contralto. For the lighter songs Molloy's arc
always good nnd invariably popular.
Hoyvo Temple's songs for contralto,
especially "My Lolly's Bower" by this
Author, nro beautiful. The love songs of
Fretleriek H. Cowan and Sir Arthur Sullivan are known the world over. The
ballad* Written by John \V. Mullen are
all good for contralto singing. The beautiful songs by Tito Mattel are so many as
to bo almost innumerable. Tosti aird
Tours have also lxien prolific writers of
contralto music. We have some new composers yvho are giving us very beautiful
contralto songs. Of these are the "Cradle
Sung" and "Good-by, Sweetheart" of
Kate Voiinoli, anil .some lovely ballads by
Anita Owen. Thero are so many good
enured songs for contralto that I liavo not
i ullicicnt space in which to iiiiiimerato
them The same may be Mild of the classical songs. The best wny to secure the
latter is to purchase the scores of the
great contralto operas, "Orpheus,"
"Trovotore," "Carmen," "La Propheto"
and many others, and select tho contralto
tongs from them.

A Disgusted Chinaman.
Kamloops Sentinel: A Chinaman
engaged as servant in a Seymour street
household, this week got a practical
acquaintance with nn American invention which disgusted him. He has
always insisted on the right to partake of any food the family may have,
and if a portion of everything is not
put aside for hiin, whether he may
have some other viand equally dainty,
bis complaints are vehement. The
other morning there yvere eggs for
breakfast, but it is so happened that
not one wus left over. John was
determined to have an egg and nothing
else. He was not satisfied when told
that there was no more in the house.
To convince him that such was really
the case, he was giveu permission to
search the hen house, which he willingly did and soon returned in triumph
bringing one in his hand. He put it
on to boil and in due course prepared
to open it with a knife, but
the knife made no impression on
it. A harder blow was no more effective Heavier weapons were taken,
but the egg remained intact. Finally
enraged and disgusted, he thr3W it on
the floor with force. The stoneware
nest egg is still as qualified to fulfil its
[unction as before.
