Govt. Agent, Eust Kooteiiny, B.C.
The merchants of Golden have decided to close their respective stores at
8 o'clock p.m., Saturdays excepted.
This new rule went into force on Monday last and will continue up to
October 1st, This is a good move and
will give tho boys a chance to have a
little sport,
Ono of the Government men was
asked what was the lirst niinio of

th is week.
The mill bands aro at present boarding (it the Russell House. Something
over eighty-five men arc now stoppiiig
there, which keeps the, proprietor uinl
his stuff busy.
A terrific hurricane struck here on
Sunday night. Trees were uprooted
nnd everything moveable wus swept
out of sight, in fact, yon couldn't see
five yards ahead of you for dust. The
henry rains which followed bud a very
cooling effect after llie oppressive heat
we bad experienced.
The boys were very much disappointed on Siitui'.lny ut nol being able to go
to Donald to play tbo rei urn football

Messrs. (1. E, Manuel nnd W. Alexander of Donald came down with the
express cm Monday lust from there.
They expected to get back the same day
but were doomed to disappointment
nnd not wishing to -stuy here ull summer they took the roud Tor it on Tues-
iluv morning. Wajking from Goldiii

The only excitement iu town since
our lust issue, excepting of course the
I'ccciitrie.iths ol tlie Wuptu, was u
short but lively exhibition of sparring
in the neighborhood of die Kootonay
House on Monday evening.
Sullivan opened the first round hy
calling Corbett a liar. Round two
wus brief but interesting. Corbett
lauded bis right ou S illivan's nasal
protuberance and followed quickly wiih
left und right on oilier parts of his
visiige retiring safely to his corner
Constable Moodie having received n
pointer promptly appeared upon the
scene and arrested the proceedings.

The mill was shut down lust Saturday on account of the wider. There
is over four feet of water in the mill,
uud everything is afluiit. The boarding bouse bud lo be abandoned and tho
boys are now living in town.
Tho Government bridge couldn't
stand tbe racket nnd on Monday afternoon about 4 o'clock gave way. From
^0 to ill) feet at. the southern end was
washed away uud later on the ether
end also went. This compelled people
to go around by the Smelter bridge id
order to get down town. On Wudnes-
day afternoon u temporary crossing
was made ut llie bridge nnd so saved
pedestrians a long walk. The tramway bridge, a 1 i11lo below the Government bridge was also curried iiway on
.Monday afternoon.
After tlio severe storm on Sunday
night lhe Kicking Horse rose rapidly
and it was only by the most strenuous
efforts that, the water was prevented
from breaking over on I bo Townsite.
(lu tlio other i.ide of the river they
wore less fortunate. The wider hroko
over liu; bunk just at the bridge on
.\Iouday afternoon and in a very short
lime a sti'i'iim two foot deep wis rushing between the Kootenay House and
the station, continuing all the way
to tbe ranches. C. A. Warren's boat,
which happened to be in town getting
painted, was called into requisition
and peopde were ferried from the depot
to the lvooto'iay House nnd vice versa
for the small stun of i'.'i cents. A
small fortune might have been mado
at this if it. luul lusted long enough
but a gangway was erected on Wednesday io   accommodate   foot pusscn-

A gang of men set to work on Wednesday, under tlio sup i'inteiitleiice of
Mr. John Meliae, lo nam up the break
at the bridge. Up to the time of going
io press work was progressing steadily
nml lhe river wns being gradually*
turned oil into its natural course. If
their efforts are successful Mr. McRau
nud bis assistants ought, to be well
recompensed for their services ns tho
work is both dangerous and difficult.
Tlie extent of the damage done will not
bo fully realized until the water bus
dried up. I is u fact, however, thnt
lhe water bus cut u channel, in the
vicinity of Hull Bros. & Co.'s shop
and up towards tbe court house, over
six feet deep.
We c.'iine very near having u meat
famine here ibis week, Hull Bros. &
Co. being cleaned right out. Fortunately, however, there were three enr
loads of cattle side-tracked nt Palliser,
en route for the coast, hut unable to get
any lurtliur ou account of the bad condition of the truck, and Mr. W. R.
Hull, wbo happens to be one of the unfortunate passengers side-tracked hero
at present, went down to Pallisei' nnd
purchased tint said cattle. He then
managed to havo the cattle, 51 head,
conveyed us fnrns Gtenogle whore thoy
wore unloaded and driven over tho
to Golden. There is now no
ilungoi-of anything like a famine hero
foi some time to come.

UiilliMiliH 111   War.
Every European correspondent who
writos of the probabilities of the groat
continental war which ull ngruocin-
not long lie delayed, emphasizes iho
importance in tlio coming contest of
two things ��� high explosives mid balloons.
The first itttempt to utilize bnlloons
in warfare wus nude hy the French in
171)4. Shortly afterward the Government School of Aeronautics wns established at the Chitutiiu do Mention,
where experiments have been enroled
on almost uninterruptedly since. In
1812 Russia us id bnlloons in win-, ami
Austria found them valuable iu ls-l'i
before Venice. Napoleon III. used
them iu his Italian campaign before
tho buttle of S-Ifeiiiio, an 1 tbey were
Utilized, us his biou told, (luring the
Into Civil War in tbo Slates.
The most important use of bnlloons,
so far recorded iu history, however,
was during tlie scige of Paris by the
Germans in 1870-71. Between the
23rd of September. 1870, and the 28th
of January, 1871, (14 bnlloons went
sont up from Palis, and nil but live
succeeded in passing above ami over
tho German armies nnd descending on
friendly or neutral territory. It wns
in one of these bnlloons, that Guiulictta
escaped from Paris.
The English long ago begun to ox-
periitient with bnlloons, and they arc
now paying ull the enormous expenses
of the construction of Hiram Miixim's
airship, about which so much bus been
written. The French not long ugo
used bnlloons in Abysinniii, ami the
English found them of value during
their recont skirmishes in Bechuiinii-
1 in I.
The most successful usa of telephony
and bnlloons occurred at thu lute
French iiiiiuiouvrcs. Gen. Gallipot
who commanded one of the opposing
forces sat ill n balloon during tho oolite contest nnd telephoned his orders
down the guy   rope to his Stuff beiow.
During the English peace manoeuvres
at Aldershot iu WM a column was put
to High! in the morning nud a balloon
set to watch them. The enemy encamped. A report (f the exact locution of its outposts wns telephoned
down from the balloon and ut midnight a platoon ol cavalry avoided ull
