Archdeacon Mack ay from Donald
paid us a short visit and held divine
service in the new school. He hnd a
very large congregation ami all joined
heartily in the service. The singing
wns excellent and the congregation
listened attentively to a thoroughly
evangelical sermon from the Archdeacon���on Christ's life as an example
to be followed by all true Christians.
Previous to the service the rite of
baptism was administered to the infant
of Mr. and Mrs. Broulettc. The Archdeacon hopes to visit us again during
the winter.
The Amateur Dramatic Club will give

We have to record another sad accident by which a poor Chinaman lost
his life. "Moloch" was riding an
Indian horse, on his way to Moyea,
when near Toneyville the horse shied
throwing the poor Chinaman on a rock
killing him instantly. He had on him
a tin of opium which "ChooChee
Woo," another celestial, clnimed was
his and when the Government Agent
found this out he had the Chinaman
up for selling opium without a license

spection a large wax doii, one of tho
treasures for Madge, the blue-eyed darling of four years, who was counting the
duys until Santa Clans should come.
3very stitch of Miss Dollie's elaborate
costume was the work of lira. Austin's
busy fingers in hours when Madge was
dreaming of full stockings and Christmas trees, und the last stitch set, the
result wus displayed for -papa's" approval.
Now papa was qnito ns devoted a parent to Madge and two-year-old Harold
as mamma, and took deep interest in all
nursery matters. It may lie luut the
memory of two other curly heads and
baby faces that hud brightened the
nursery for u few brief months and
then been hidden by coilln-lids deeponed
the love for tho children who came later
to comfort the aching hearts. But it is
very certain that the little Austins wero
an much loved and petted as children
could be, and. did not dream more hopefully of Christmas treasures than their
parents did lovingly of supplying tliein.
So it was with some alarm; too, that
Mrs. Austin pnt aside her last triumph
of needlework nnd threw her arm
around her husband's nock.
"What is it, Charlie?" she asked.
He drew Iier into a loving embrace
before he said, sadly:
"I met my father again today. Margaret, it will kill me to have things go

feeble and broken; looking so old mid
so sick that 1 could not keep the tears

paternal displeasure. Mrs. Austin hud
been u poor girl, employed in tho factory of Simo.i Austin, then a man of
great wealth and good social position; a
uiuu purse-proud, arrogant, anl full of
his own importance. When his only
child, his idolized, indulged sun au.1
heir, told him of his love for preity
Margaret liuy, a factory-girl, living in
the factory boarding-house, wearing
calico dresses, und earning n mere living, tho old man was a manioc in his
fury.
Ho wonld not soo that the girl was
pleasing in manner, refined iu tnstc,
well edncntcd and sweet tempered, one
to brighten any homo, nnd make any
good man thoroughly happy. He gav'o
a fierce cuniuiiiud that thu mutter should
end then and there. Chorion Austin,
utterly unaccustomed to be crossed in
any fancy, refused obedience, never before exneted, and the conversation ended
in a stormy quarrel and tho young man's
expulsion from home.
Bnt with a good fortune that does not
often follow disobedient sons, Charles
was at once taken into tho employ uud
favor uf his mother's brother, an eccentric old bachelor, who gave tho young
couple a homo in his own luxurious
house. It was a new llfe to tho old gen
tleiuan, and he took the keenest interest
in all the household alfairs as Margaret
managed them, loved and mourned the
older children, and dying, when Madge
was but a year old, left his entire large
estate to his "beloved nephew, Charles
Austin."   .
And while the sunshine of prosperity
had no clouds for his wayward son, the
father's fortunes hud gono all awry.
Some commercial panic was tho first
blow to Simon Austin, and au effort to
repair the loss by speculation only ndded
to disaster. He missed the cool, clear
head of tlie son who had of lato years
been his active tiiniier, the judgment he
had first trained aud then trusted to
guide his largo business. He was angry,
nnd his angry impulses led hiin into ilii-o
blunders, until he grew so involved that
there wus no escape, and he failed for
more than his entire fortune.
At once Charles hastened to him,
offering his entire wealth to save him.
only lo be met by a proud, fierce refusal
to be under any obligation to a disobedient child or his beggar wife.
Over inul over nguin, as poverty became more and more Litter to the man
broken and aged, did his son implore
him to allow bim to help him, offer him
n home, love, care, obedience oven, only
to be thrown back with angry scorn,
A proud man always, Liium Austin
cherished his wrath ns tbe lust remnant
of the old arrogance, and would not
bend one inch. He found letters telling
him anonymous suuu of uiu..jy y,'e��-j ia
the tinn.c sin his rnmo, :r"d :������������'�� imci
refusing to claim them. He nti"t usur i
every oiler of service, nu <iict n. .i iiy In i
son. and returned lo Charles every wra i
of aid sent to hiin, often perplexing 1., i
son by sending what Had nor come from
him, thuu;;h ho always rufuood to uo-
lieve this.
And being oltl and broken in 1ipii1'\
he sunk lower and lower, unable to liii
lucrative positions, and tiikiug'iue wo. ;
that gave lum barely lood una i..o poorest clothing.
Very sruliy the son nnd his wife talked
of the iinpoosiuiliiy of helping one wliu
would not let any appeul umcli him,
until suddenly Margaret cried:
���'Chuiies, i have tin idea! Let me try
to win your fiiiher over. 1 will send
him n Christmns card."
���'My dear, he would not open tho envelope."
"liutit will not go in an envelope.
Don't ask any questions. Let ine t. y,
and see if your lullior will nut diuo wu.i
us to-morrow."
"Di.ie with est Margaret, you must
ho crazy 1"
"Not a bit of it. Just let mo have
my own way, dear."
" Do you ever fail to got thnt ?" wus
the laughing query, for souietim g in hi i

Austin. Everything iu tno B.iuuoy
place told of tliu lacit of woin.in's curt
und love. Dust hung upon everything:
disorder reigned. Tliere were no' uuimy
trifles of needlework; the curtains .wero
uiiigy anu isruuiwial; the cwpet lu.n uud
dirty.
Very wearily and slowly the old mnn

and thou it opened wido uud closed

DOXALD  NOTES.
Tho Kate   Putnam   Co. will appear
next Monday  and  Tuesday the 17th
and lHlli inst., iu tho Firemen's Hall.
The opening piece will ho " Lovo finds
�� way," and " Krma the Elf" tho second night.     Kate  Putnam   is a conscientious and painstaking actress and
deserves good  houses each night.     It
is seldom small towns get a chance to
see such a. company as  this, generally
we are hlessed with fake shows.   Your
correspondent  who  has seen this lady
several  times  can  only say thnt any-
hody who misses this show will regret
it.    The Regina Leader has this to say
about the company :      "To venture n
four  night's engagement  in a small
city in hard   times   was a  dubious, a
daring thing.   On Monday night how-
���ever this excellent company opene d in
Kegina   with   "Love   finds   away.''
This is a sparkling comedy in which
the versatile and  talented star Katie
Putnam   is  at   her  very best.   The
make np of the child Gay Howard was
rsimply  grand.     The   child  manner,
voice, movement all perfect.    As Tommy she electrified a genuine, romping,
���dare  devil,   Tommy   who  saug and
danced his way into the hearts of the
audience.     The   piny with a swing;
Katie  Putnam   herself    playing   the
-double part with a dash and vim that
won for  her on the  second night n
���crowded   house.     This   was the best
. proof of her popularity."
Our Nimrods havo returned and as
predicted almost had need of an extra
car. Forty-one deer and three mountain sheep fell to their unerring rifles,
Archdeacon McKay being the chief,
with a score of 14 deer nnd .'1 sheep.
Everybody is enjoying deer meat.
The new Oddfellows Hall begins to
show up well and will be quite an ornament to our town. Tho addition
will make quite a nice stage room.
Mr. Joe Neelan has commenced his
new residence. It will be finished in
about a month's time.
Tobognnning has been indulged in
to some extent by ladies and children,
the absence of toboggans being the
reason that there aro no more using
the slide, but they are expected to
arrive every dav. In the meantime
skating has been going on, on the pond
near the C.P.R. water tank.
There is talk of a fancy calico dress
ball gome tiire in January next, the
society ladies having it in hand. Committees of arrangement havo been
appointed.
���Nemo,
so that the outlook for a good winter's
sport is very bright indeed. It would
ho well for the boys tn remember that
only those who have pnid their membership fee are eligible to enter for tho
above competitions. Skips are requested to see that this rule is strictly observed. The President vs. Vice-President match resulted in a win for tho
President by LS points. Thrco dE the
games were very evenly contested, two
of tbem resulting in a tie. In the

Curlers are growing more enthusiastic over the game every day. Six
pair of curling stones have been ordered this week ou arrival of which the
curlers will be able to run two games
nt the same time. A competition has
been arranged and a valuable prize of
lour pair of stones will be given to the
rink with the greatest number of wins
in a series of games. There will also
be the District medal for the Points
Competition. In addition to these,
two or three enthusiasts of the game
have promised trophies for com petition,
'lhe curlers in Carlin it Lake's storo
threw out. a cliullengo on Saturday
lust to piny any rink in town for a
case of coul oil to bo given to the
hospital. Tlio challenge was not out
many minutes before it was accepted
by D. Rao, who agreed to the terms of
the challengers and the date was accordingly fixed for Monday night. A
few of tho knowing ones kept tallying
the "kids" about what a soft thing
they had, etc., but when Monday night
camo around tho Carlin A Lake outfit
did uot provo to bo us soft as they
looked. At half past eight Monday
night the rinks lined up as follows : ���

Not wishing to monopolize the ice
it was agreed that only ten ends be
played. Umpire McNeish was on deck
together with a large crowd of interested spectators. A noticeable feature
of the game was that it was a married
vs. single match, nud naturally enough
tho bachelors hud the sympathies ol
tlie spectators. " Sandy's " rink opened the game by scoring four iu the
first four ends, ou the fifth end the
"kids" --cored two. In tho next two
ends "Sandy " added thrco to his score
and the game thus stood 7 to 2 at the
end of the seventh end. An advance
wns made in the price of coul oil.
With only three ends to play aud six
points to make to win things looked
blue for tbo " kids," but they were
playing a veteran gamo and never for
a moment lost heart, not even the big
lead which their opponents hud could
rattle them a bit. On tho three last
ends they completely outplayed the
Carlin & Lake men scoring two nt
each end, thus winning u well contested game by one point. At the conclusion of the gamo Mr. Russell issued
a challenge to tho world. Ho will no
doubt find lots of lakers, in fact he
bus a gnme on his hands now with C.
A. Warren, which will uo doubt bo
played nt no very distant date.
