From Mr. S. Redgrave's returns, as
Registrar for East Kootenay of Births.
Marriages ai'd Deaths, for the year
1894, the following information is
obtained : Births 29, Marriages 10,
Deaths 20, but out of the number of
20 deaths, 11 only were from natural
causes, there being 5 deaths from accidents and 4 by drowning in tho Kicking Horse and Columbia Rivers.
Taking all East Kootenay tho number
of deaths from natural causes would be
a very small percentage, which still
shews us that East Kootenay is one ol
the healthiest districts in the world.
A great deal of trouble is taken by
our Registrar to get all returns and it
would still W��m that many in our
midst nre not. aware that births, etc..
should lie registered. There is a heavy
penalty for not registering and nil
should know it is imperative. Registration should be made of births and
deaths within sixty days of the time
and ns East Kootenay is n large scattered district, it would seem only
natural that nil officers especially
should assist the Registrar and see
when u birlh or death takes place tha
they are properly reported o.i the
regular forms for thai purpose.
IMI.1jtI.ll NOTES.
In last week's "Notes" a mistake
was mado in describing Mrs. Spragge's
dress. It ought to have read "Dresden China" being nu exact counterpart of Dresden china statuary.
The Quadrille Club did not meet last
Friday night on account of some of
its members attending the Curlers'
Ball ai Golden.
Mr. Thos. Lewis, one of the C.P.R.
men working in the round house had
two fingers of his left hand crushed
hy being run over by an engine. He
luul finished wiping tho engine when
tno latter was started for the turntable, he stepped back, but slipped and
fell towards the engine, his head striking the frame work and his hand coming under the wheels. He was very
lucky at not being hurt more seriously. He left ou Wednesday's No. 1 for
Uevclstoke to have his hand attended
to by Dr. McLean and expects to loose
one linger if not two.

Our local'chief "Ram in the Face,''

swears vengeance and it all comes
about on account of Indian Agent
Vowell not smoking tho pipe of peace
with Iiiiu. The chief learning of tho
representative of King " George" coming to town, hail a great feast prepared
in his teepee. The bill of fare con-
isted of rousted puppies, skunk and
oilier Indian delicacies. Tho wigwam
was decorated with all the scalps of
dusky enemies of the renowned warrior,
but alas for tho disappointment, the
longed for guest did not show up.
Now tho indignant ohief swears by
the bleached blonde scalps of the
squaws that this insult requires gore
by tho bucketful and all the firewater
in thu Dominion will not quench his
thirst lor it; if he can't get it he will
hie himself in the spring to his native
haunts in the wild aud woolly territories of the 0-ka.n-na-gnn and woe
betide the unlucky traveller who
should ask for shelter, he is sure not
to gel sober for a week.

A pretty girl will sublun fjur out of
every five men she meets, but it is al-
A canny draw | ways the fifth she wants.
But a feeble, liont old lad**-.
With a failed, wrinkled face.
Who along thu car peered dimly
To obtain a vacant place;
Yet. as If with pulse electric,
Instantly upon his feet
Every man arose to give her
With a .mile hia empty seat.
Kindly {-lances rested on her;
Kfndly hands were ready there
To support her should she need It.
For her soft and snowy hair
Seemed an aureole of glory
To those care-encumbered men.
As the mother love within them
Woke to consciousness again.
Ah. there's nothing half so holy
In this world of sin and woe
As the love that bletsed our childhood
In tho years of Long Ago;
And a common chord ot feeling
Linked together nnr.n with mun
When tho thought of homo and mother
Through that crowd of strangers ran.

Julie. "That golden butter must be

"Bnzzy is so���well, Bnzzy is only a
little boy, I can't send him shopping,"
sighed Mm. McNair.
Thoughtful Mr. McNair said:
"Why not Caddie WheelerT Caddie
isn's timid. Selim is a trusty animal,
work's well in the irirls' phaeton.
"Oh. father, you dear!" cried Julie,
joyously. "Three cheers! Rnthy get

to hold lho lines and guide, Father,

afraid. Selim is jnst the kindest, smart
est old horse, goes around all the bad
plnciM. You'll have nothiug to do, only
avoid the crowded streets. You know,
too, just where to go."
"Laws, now," said the hired man. *'I
do wonder, Buzzy, if your pop's goin'to
let then strange girls hev Selim and
drivo to the city 'thout comp'ny?"
"Philip, bellins gentle as a dog.
They've been to the city a dozen times.
Selim likes to pace along slow."
"Did you ever see him run to a fire?"
inquired Philip.
Fire? U-mph, Selim hasn't been in
the lire service the lust eight years. He
was only in the service two years," said
Buzzy, conclusively.
"I don't care. He was one in a fire
team. He was disciplined every day.
He was yjunr and learned his lusnon by
heart. He will never forget it either.
Neither folks nor horses can quite unlearn things that's most second nature.
Selim is a beuuty, gentle and obedient,
but he can't be trusted in the city. He's
Ireen tested. A gentleman in the ci y
wanted him bad for a family carriaue
horse, them fire signals start him avoiu'.
Selim hud tn find a home in the country,
where the (ire gongs "
"Ho! ho! I see," laivhed Bnzzy.
"Wouldn't it be (un to see old Selim
clip it?"
"It wouldn't be (nn (or the girls."
"I don't want harm to come to them.
I thought, Philip, you said discipline
���*as so helpful."
"I did," curtly replied Philip.
"But it makes Selim unreliable."
"Selim's u good horse���biddable too."
"I don't understand you. Philip. I
do not believe even a fire gong will wake
np that sleek, (at, lazy fellow. The
girls will drive home iu sa(ety," said
"If I really feared anything would
hnppen 'em, I should have warned yonr
pop. I suy there's a risk that Selim '11
hear tbo firo alarm, catch sight of the
hose carts and fire teams, au* mind his
own past traiuin'. A home isu't sup-
josed to know when to qnit
obeyin* signals. Boys may lear when
to do or leave off doiu' thingr. Kow
���'pose you tell your pop to come here."
The noon lunch was eaten. Two
o'clock and the Wheeler girls were not
in sight. Julie kept watch ut the attic
window, looking (ar down the road.
"If an accident has happened Selim is
not to blame," stoutly declared Mr. McNair.
"They're coming up the hill

must have poked dreadfully."
"Did you have a pleasant

Mr. McNair.
"Run? He galloped���galloped madly."

"No," replied Cadence, "only it was

too, Selim stood in tbe harness, docile
and gentle.
"I hnd fortrntten that Selim was once

this happening. Girls. It is my fault.
My good fellow, you aro a faithful old

"Whoa. Selim! You aro impatient

out temptingly a ripe June apple.
"You'n me aren't (ond of work. There
now, take the apple. Phillip. I detest
hateful, everyday chores. I do sometimes make a fuss when the girls find
extra errands for me to do. A boy
needs lime fur play. I'm not a shirk;

I'm older I'll work for nil the family,

On the following dny the leagne picnic in the McNair grove wus a happy
Selim, in the phaeton shafts, stood
quietly beside a maple tree, Julie McNair holding the lines.
"Dr. Love is coming our way with
little Bess,'' sail Marie.
"Cadence," whispered Ruth Wheeler,
���It is our friend."
Dr. Love had not forgotten. A
twinkle gleamed in his brown eyes.
"We���we did not expect to see you
again, sir," stammered Cadence. "We
are grateful tb yon."
"The old fellow gave you no more
surprises?" said the doctor.
"No; but wasn't it dreadful���two

with the hose carts?" laughed Ruth
"Selim is a lovely horse for the country," Julie eagerly declared.

To determine the comparative feeding
rslne of timothy, lucerne and wild hay,
t^fe'tnh (U.S.) experiment station so-
IWMl three lots of steers. Ono lot was
fed 45 pounds of tlmothv per day, ���
other 45 pounds of lucerne and a third
tlie same amount of native bay. Tho
animals were confined in box stalls, one
in each lot being tied. At the end of
the five weeks it was shown thnt the lot
ou timothy did* the poorest, and those
ou lucerne the best. However, the
timothy-fed steers wasted 116 pounds-
more of their food than did the others.-
This experiment, while not at all conclusive, indicates tliut lucerne hay in
all probability will compare fairly in
feediugvnliie with other forage crops.
In order lo test still further the value
of these three hays, a similar experiment wus tried ut tlie same station with
sheip. Thrco lots of sheep were used
and ihey were confined in small pens.
Practically tliu samu results were reached as witli tiie cuttle, except that the
oinouii t of the different hays eaten were
npinoxiiiiati'ly the same The sheep did
poorest ou timothy und best ou lucerne.
Both experiments concur in showing
that lucerne in the barn as hay is �����
more valuable food than either timothy
or will grass. This, however, is contrary to tlie results obtained in pastnre
experiments in Utah. Invariably the
green lucerne has been found less rains'do than other grosses for grazing pur-
j jioses.
From theso two experiments it may
1 lie concluded: 1. That cuttle appear to
1 do better on lncerne hay pound for
pound than either timothy or wild hay.
2. That wild hay pound for pound is
I more valuable than timothy. 8. Lucerne
bay is more valuable for sheep than tim-
| oihy lit y. In both experiments it appears that the appetites of the animals
j  were not gno.l, uud that in former ex-
I periments the best results were only
ol tained where exercise was given regularly uud systematically, and thnt trust-
| worthy experiments cannot be made
where the appetite is not good and the
food njit appetizing. These two experiments then further confirm the opinion
that exercise is dispensable in obtaining
proper growth.

We had n very pleasant visit from
onr former Gold Commissioner. Mr A
W Vowell, who is now Supt of Indian
Affairs for the Province. He came on
nn official visit to Fort Steele accompanied hv Mr Giilbruith the Agent.
He visited the Industrial School where
lie was presented with an address ot
welcome by the pupils. The children
were examined hy the Sister Superior
and her assistants on the several subjects taught ut t he school and acquitted
themeelves creditably, anl after going
Through tlie buildings and carefullv
-inspecting them lie expressed himself
very much pleased with the progress
the children had made and with the
neat nnd orderly way iu which' lie
found everything around the school.
On his return to Fort Steele he had a
long interview with tlie Indians who
expresstd great pleasure nt meeting tlie
������tyliee" aud' hoped ho woulu soon
come again to visit them. The residents ut Fort Steele were delighted to
see him and when visiting uo old
frietid wns forgotten. Mr Vowell is
nn old Kootemiyite. having been appointed to the district as S M and G V
in the vear 1872. Few tuen iti the
Province were more worthy of promotion than he, us he lias pushed his
wuy thro' every grade of tlie service,
till he has reached u position which
requires tact, good judgment and experience to fill. In the several positions
lie has occupied from time to time he
hag left a clean record. Before leaving
Fort Steele lie visited tlie public school
and expressed himself much pleased
with the work being done by Miss
Hailey. During his stay he was the
guest of .Mr Galbraith nt the Agency.
Mr William Carlin has returned to
Fort Steele from Golden looking very
well after his visit.
At lust work hns commenced on the
Dridge und it is to he hoped that it
will now be pushed thro' with some
energy. The St Mary's bridge will
also be g*me on with, both these
bridges are much required and should
be built without delay. The bridge at
Canal Flat in now finished nnd open
for travel, it cost the country it is suid
about 89.000.
Harry Cummins is bore, it is understood he comes us clerk ol tlie works
and time keeper.
Twenty-two men are constantly employed getting out timbers for the
bridges at the St Mary's and Fort
; William Gillis hns gone to Golden
with two tennis for supplies lor Curlin
A Lake.
Outs are selling at $2, the lowest
price ever reached ior grain.
Bobbie Burns' D.iy will be duly observed by a dance nt the Dclgaiduo
Hotel and a pleasant time is anticipated.
On St Valentine's Day a grand dance
find supper will be given ut Wasa, by
mine host Hanson and his able assistant the genial William Slnde. A jolly
crowd is expected.
A nice social time was spent recently at the "Grange" u party consisting
of Mr Justice McVittie, .Miss Builey,
Miss On linn ith, Mrs Clnrk and a number of friends. Mr Humphreys left
nothing undone to make tlie visit ol
his guests -.lt-aauiit.
A jolly party consisting of Cliurli'
Edwards, A Feuwick, A Bnles, 1
We'ls and a number of others from
Canal Flat spent the holidays at Wasn
it is needless to say everything was,
done by Mr Hanson to make the visit
of the boys pleasant.
On Sunday Inst divine service whs
held in the school house at whicli
there was ti very lame attendance not
a sent was vacant und all present join
ed heartily in the service. Miss Baile.i
presided at theorguu and Mr Galbmith
acted as lay reader. The services will
be continued every Sunday evening foi
thu future.
All milling operations are suspended
for the present, with the exception of
Mr Jennings who is still putting down
his shaft on Wild Horse creek. He
has uot thu pump fixed and it is hoped
he will see red rock shortly, lie deserves success as lie hns surmounted
difficulties which would have discouraged others from going on with tht
work. It is the wish of all thut his
efforts will be amply rewarded.
We have had the January thaw, it
came rather soon but still welcome.
Very little .snow, stock running on the
ranges, all doing well. Weather warm
and pleas int.
.Mr McVittie, C K & P L S hns jnst
compiled for the Lands &, Works Department a map of East Kootenay
from the 49th Par. at Tobacco Plains
to near Golden. This is one of the
most complete and useful maps yet
published of this portion cf the Province and gives a lot of information thin
will aid those seeking homes in this
section. It fills a long felt want and
it is to be hoped the Government will
huvo it lithographed without delay.
For some months past a good deal
of dis-satisfaction has beon expressed
ly those employed by the Government
on public works, at the way they hit
pnid. If the complaint is well grounded it would be well for tho''powers
that be" to look into the mutter and
see who is to blame, without delay
remove the grievance. The local government ure taking great credit foi
legislating in the interest of tho working men. They certainly should set
an example to the employers of labour
throughout the Province by paying
their employees monthly and thereby
remove a source of irritation and
serious grievance which has beon existing for some time.
A P Cummins, S M. G C, is looked
for shortly. It is scarcely necessary
to say we are always glad to see hiin.
Our new organ for tlie school has
arrived. It was supplied by Knrn Ai.
Co, Woodstock Ont., and is a sweet
