was in every respect lirst class, but

Two rinks of curlers left on Wednesday of last week for Calgary, where
they had lieen invited to play a friendly name. Half a mile east of Golden
u stop was made owing to mud slides
in the canyon, causing a delay of two
hours and a half, Field was reached
shortly after 8 -o'clock and after the
wants of the inner man had been satisfied the train proceeded east, reaching
Calgary about i o'clock Thursday
morning. After-breakfast the Golden
boys wended their way to the-curling
rink, where they were heartily welcomed by the kuights.of the besam and
stancs. -Business was commenced at
once, the Golden rinks being drawn
against rinks fron- Fish Creek and
Sheep Creek in-the Visitors Competition. In both games the Goldeuites
were successful, the following being
the result:
McNeish   17   Hunter (Sheep Crk.)   ?
Rae 13   McMillan (Fish   ")   (5
30 IT
Majority for Golden ���13 points.
An adjournment was made for lunch,
after which play was resumed, McNeish crossing brooms with Hastings
of Calgary. Af'cr a hard game Hastings won hy 3 points, the score stand
ing���Hastings 17, .McNeish II. At
the same time on rink No. 4, Rao aud
Smith of Calgary, were fighting it out
to the bitter end, the Goldenites however got the better of their opponents
by a couple of points���Rae 15, Smith
13. In tho evening McNeish met
Walker of Calgury in' tho second event,
Billy, however, seetnod to be out oi
luck and was again defeated by It! to !).
The same evening Rae met and defeated Baiincriuan of Coignry in the same
competition- Rue 20, Bannerman 10.
This finished lho games for tlie day
and tho curlers were then escorted to
the Opei'tt House, by their Calgary
brethern, where a reception was being
given to tlie Mounted Police by the
citiieens of Calgary. Here again the
Goldenites showed to advantage, tripping the light fantastic toe with Calgary's fairest daughters.
Play was resumed on Friday morning, Rae and W. H. Grant coining
together. The Calgary veteran proved
too much for the boys, tho score being
Grant 22, Rae 12, with one end to
play. In tho afternoon line and
Hastings met and after a hard game
Hastings won on the last end, 12 to 9.
In the evening the visitors wero
entertained to an oyster supper aud a
pleasant time was g'cnt by all.
The Points game was played on
Saturday morning, first prisso being
taken by Johnston of Calgarj with
26. The Golden boys showed up
pretty well iu this' competition, McNeish taking fourth place with 22.
The smallness of the scores was due to
the poor condition of the ice, which
wus rendored heavy owing to the soft
weather prevalent at the time.
In the afternoon the visitors drove
around the city, viewing the principal
places of interest, They left the same
night for home.
The boys are in every way pleased
with their trip, both in the manner in
which they were treatod during their
stay in Calgary and also with their
performances on the ice, doing fully
better than they expected. They were,
however, not a little handicapped in
their games, having to. meet fresh
rinks all the time, while they themselves having no rest at all were pretty
well played out. This inconvenience
was owing to the delay experienced by
the Goldenites in reaching Calgary,
the train being 27 hours late, consequently they had to play two days'
games in one day. They are to be
congratulated, however, on the creditable showing they made in their first
outside matches. If the weather holds
good two rinks ffom Calgary are expected to have a return game. We
can guarantee them a hearty reception
should they come as our curlers laro
not a bit behind their Calgary brethern
in point ot hospitality.
The.trophy won by the Golden boys
is on exhibition at C. A. Warren's
store, and is a handsome carving set.
McNeish and Bae will play off for it,
the winning rink will then probably
settle the ownership by playing points
for tiie same. At present, however,
the weather is rather unsuitable for
curling aud to all appearances the
ownership of the trophy will remain
undecided until next season.
V.lMj.C.E. Opel* Meeting.
The Young People's Christian Endeavor Society of Golden, held its first
open meeting on Friday evening of
last week. Rev. W. R. Ross was
called to the chair aud opened tha
evening's entertainment with an eloquent address iu reference to the society, its dutien and moral worth to
each of its members. A short programme, chiifii of a literary character,
was then gone through, being well
rendered in every particular, and a
most pleasant aud profitable evening
was spent by all. These entertainments
will be given on the last Friday evening of each mouth. Everybody welcome.

For Till* Eit.t.
imrt  i.
Have you e're lieen in Golden,
���   That dear litl le place,
Where the mountains all round
Look you full in the face?
To-the eastward the Rockies,
'���'��� The Selkirks on the wist,
��� Ard Golden iii the valley
Sits like bird in her nest.
Flowing down from the Rockies
From the snow-crested ridges,
. Cnnes the Kicking Horse River
.   Sweeping under its bridges.
On its way through the town
Over rocky lelgo going
Still hastening down
Where Columbia's flowing.
Oil that Kicking Horse River
���r.   In the summer it smiles
And glanoes and gleams
.-.-   And the sportsman beguiles, -
With his rod and his line
On its banks to sit down,
. As it glides by the woods,
-*.'��� As it Hows through the town.
But; ah ! in the spring,
When the sun on the mountains
Is melting the snow
And opening the fountains;
That same smiling river
Comes with plunge and with roar
Down the Kicking Horse canyon
Like the "Falls of Lodore."
'Gainst the strong wooden -jines
The river coines dashing,
And foaming.and tumbling,
An.'] roaring and splashing.
As if it intended,
To carry away
Houses, bridges and trees,
In its riotous play.
By the C.P.R. station
We se*> a steep hill.
��� Let us climb by this path,
Just behind the big mill.
Let ns follow the path
As it leads round the crest
Of the hill, till the town's
Si retched before us, at rest.
Far down is the station,
There, just at our feet,
Beyond, houses and stores
On the wide village street.
Churches, schools and the homes
Where the Goldenites dwell,
The '��� Big Store," the market,
Town hall and hotel.
And there, past lhe town
Near the river, one sees
The hospital building
Almost hid by the trees.
Golden's proud of her hospital
And rightly, for there
The sick nnd maimed find skillful
Attention and care.
Beyond this again
Here and there is the gleam
At the foot of the Selkirks,
Of Columbia's stream.
-Beside this mighty river
A half mile from the town,
Stands the saw mill by tlie pontoon
Where the logs come float ing down
And from the sawmill by the river
To the bridge within the town,
Little, busv, bus: Iing liel sy.
Goes pulling up and down.
Who is Betsy ? do you ask me ?
Why the pride ol all the town,
Though her face is black mid sooty,
And she wears no fancy gown.
Little Betsy is the. engine,
Which   brings lumber  from   the
At noon time every day her shriek
Re-echoes from tliu hills.
Yes, Golden looked a charming place
Lust twenty-lourth of May,
When  mo said  good-bye to snowcapped peaks,
Befoie we came away.
We waved good bye to friends then
Beside the rushing river,
And, looking from the engine,
Frowning   mountains    made  us
As from Golden up lho canyon,
In the engine we were flying,
While to shrieking of our snorting
The mountains were replying.
Were we frightened? Oh the grandeur
Left us littlo time for fear,
Besides we knew the skillful hand
01 Old Carey engineer.
You know this Mr. Carey
That good-natured, jolly man,
Who handles No. 4(1(1,
As only Carey can.
He pointed out the landmarks,
The mountains far and near,
All Ihe while he scanned tliesliining
With steady eye and clear.
Past the glaciers, still we mounted,
Past  the   mountains    frowning,
Over trcssels where we  held   our
By valleys wild and deep.
Labor omnia vincil,
I thought as we rushed along,
And wondered, seeing overcome,
Obstacles great ami strong.
As our train with three great Moguls
Through the mountains speeds,

A Novel Logging Devlre.
There is a wood pile in Lead City,
S.D., widely known throughout lhe
Black Hills mining region. It belongs
to the Homestnke Gold Mining Company, and is composed of timbers
about thu size of railroad ties, which
nre used in supporting the walls und
roofs ol the drifts and tunnels of the
mines. A narrow gauge railroad brings
the logs, which have been sawn flat
on two sides, to a point on the mountain slope about GCO feet above the
valley, and ihey are then thrown into
a wooden chute itlioui 4 feet wide and
2 feet deep. The inside surface is kept
smooth and slippjry by a small stream
oi water. If the logs were allowed to
run directly to the ground, they would
speedily excavate an enormous hole
besides damaging themselves, so the
lower end of the chute is curved upward, and the logs leave it nt au angle
of about (10 degrees with the horizontal
and rise from 150 to 200 feet in the
air, turning over and over, and finally
landing on the enormous pile already
there. A useful fact in connection
wilh this method is that the logs
sort themselves in the pile according
to their size: the heavier ones, having
a greater momentum, nre all found at
the side farthest away from the chute.

In Canada duelling was almost entire-
1 ��� confined to the profession of arms.
Th - list duel that took place in Upper
Cumuli-, h-wever, was between civilian*, although it wns probably tlie ont
I'ome of tlie spirit which so long pervaded some of the military settlements
in Citnuda. '
After the fall of Napoleon and the
conclusion of the American war of 1812-
13. lhe British army was reduced to a
place fouling ami several of the regimen;* were disbanded in Camilla, lands
being allotted them in proportion to
rank, and tools anil rations beinir pro-
v..ii'd the men nnder certain regulations
as to settlement, etc. Perth, now tho
county town of the comity of Lnnnrk,
was one of the most important centres
of ono of these military settlements.
Many nf the officers of the gallant Glengarry Fetifibles nnd a number from
other regiments settled here, who, together witli tlie soldiers from all branches of the service, gave a decidedly military flavor to the social life of the little
community. Isolated from the rest of
the world, living almost entirely within
themselves under semi-military lawB,
like tlie Bourbons forgetting nothing
und learning nothing, the settlement for
the lirst twenty-five years of its existence presented a curious anomaly, nn
Old Country village of the Inst century
in tlie l.nckwoods of Canada It was
known as the half-pay officers' paradise.
The distinction of clans and the precedence uf rank were ns rigidly insisted
upon in their log houses in tiie bush as
if nt a grand review ou Honuslow Heath
or at a levee at Ht. James' Palace.
Proud, arrogant old fellows tlioy were,
these half pay officers, bnt brave and
-initio and manly withal. If they hnd
faults they had grenter virtnes, whicli
have so impressed themselves on onr national life that much ia due to them that
Canadians are a loynl and a manly people. In tlie early thirties there were two
young men engaged in the study of law
in this I'liniut old town, who were not
only sought after by ambitions iiiaiiiiiins
for every social rout and party, but were
looked upon hy the people nt large as
Iieing lads nf peculiar promise in their
profession. They were both of good
family, Hubert Lyon being a son of Captain Lyon of Richmond, a neighboring
settlement, and the father of John Wilson was ti Scutch gentleman of scholarly
tastes, but slender menus, who had made
many sacrifices to give his sou a profes
sion. Some of the oldest residents of
Pertli yet remember them and speak of
the inseparable friendship that existed
between them, and the manly light-
In tu ted natures of the lads. Lvon wus
a student ill the office of his kinsman,
the father of the late William Rnilen-
hurst. nnd Wilson in that of the Hon.
James Loul-oti, two leading offices iu the
Ottawa valley. In tno spring of 1883
tiio two students were sent by their
respective principals to Bytown, then
nu miiiiip'.rinnt vitiligo, on some legal
business ill which both offices were interested. Whatever It was that occurred
lietwet-n them in Bytown which wns the
first ciinse of the subsequent tragedy,
the outside world will never accurately
atiow. Tradition speaks of a half-laugh
in;;, half serious remark by Lyon, in
which n lady's name is thoughtlessly
used in the confidence of late hours,
pipes, and wine. The remark' is taken
seriously by Wilson, who wrote in confidence t�� a lady in Perth, n relative, regarding its truth. In a short time the
inevitable result followed, aud Lyon returned to Perth to receive only a
naughty stare from the lady whose
name 1.0 had thoughtlessly spoken and
a practical dismissal of  bis suit from
Miss , his fiancee.   Half maddened
with these, to him, inexplicable insults,
he demanded an explanation. Wilson's
rel live refused to divulge her informant's name without his consent. Wilson came forward manfully and admitted his share in the affair and said he
was justified under the circumstances.
There was a casual meeting before the
court house, some hot-tempered words
were exchanged, a blow given by Lvon
was received on the cheek by Wilson
and they were separated. To understand what follows one most consider
the sit nation of the parties. Lyon,
connected by blood and marriage with
tue principal families of the settlement,,
genial, dashing, and debonair in his
manlier, strikingly handsome, an athlete
who easily surpassed all his companions
tu feats of strength and skill, would undoubtedly have the sympathy of the
little community which was their social
world in the quarrel between the former
friends; while Wilson,  of littlo  social
influence, of a sby, sensitive lint proud
temperament, had few of those more
superficial qualities which make n man
popnlnr. What feelings agitated tho
breast of the proud, sensitive boy���for
Wilson was not twenty-one���during the
days that followed the encounter at the
court house, one can only imagine. How
hi* cheek must have tingled as he
thought of what tlie half-pay officers,
tne magnates of his world, would say.
No gen.lviuaii will submit to u blowl
How must his blood have boiled as he
r.'iiliied the fruitlessness of returning a
blow nggiust an athlete liko Lyon! How
lie must have thought that every man*
looked upon him, with their old-fashioned idea3, us a coward, and every woman
usa triulucerl Oh, if they only knew
that be bad a right to send that letter, a
light to know as to the truth of Lyon's
words! It must have been in this
frame of mind that lie consulted
Ki.an' companions ns to what action
lie should take. Queer connsellonuthey
were, bronght up with tbe old ideas of
their fathers, who forgot that .'he world
hnd changed since tbey wereyonngiucn
and talked ns blithely nhont pinking or
winging their men ��s if old George III.
were yet on the throne. Thoy determined that Wilson had receiveil n deadly insult and that his outraged honor demanded satisfaction, nnd a challenge
wns sent to Lyon. It is a noticeable
peculiarity of the history of duelling
tbnt it is almost invariably the friends
that seem to I hink that the only thing to
wash out what they grandiloq'iently call
dishonor, is blood. There can bo little
doubt that both Lyon aud Wilson, despite their unfortunate quarrel, sincerely liked each other in their heart of
hearts as much as ever, bnt they, iu the
language of the Code, were in the hands
of their friends.
A venerable and much respected lady,
almost thn lust link that connects the
earliest settlement with the present,
told me the story the other day. "I was
only a girl at the time," she said in hor
gentle Scotch voice, "nnd had jnst come
out." And the dear old lady, the belle
of other days, paused nntl seemed to travel back over the long sixty years to
the time when her benutifnl white
hair was golden nud her wrinkled cheek
was ruddy with youth ami health.
"I knew poor Mr. Lyon and Mr. Wilson. Everyone was surprised when
they henrd of the duel, for only the second and the surgeon knew. I believe.
Everything was conducted properly,
you know," said my informant, drawing herself up, more erectly if possible
than before, on the chair whoso buck
she would have scorned to touch nnd
looking us if the only impropriety there
conld be about a duel was the manner
in which it was carried out. "Mr. Julius
Lelievre, a son of Captain Lelieyre, un
officer in the French navy who luul left
the French service with his ship, so it
wus said, in tlie last war, and joined
the British, wns Mr. Lyon's second;
Mr. Simon Fraser Robertson, son of
Captain Robertson, acted for Mr. Wilson, and yonng Mr. Rende, sou uf stuff-
surgeon Heinle, was the surgeon. Young
Mr. Reade went into the army and be'
came a surgeon-major. He distinguished himself lately in tho Crimea und in
the Mutiny.
"Tho meeting took place jnst beyond.'
the town line on the right bank of the
Tny. There was a large elm tree on the
spot which is I here yet. Mr.-Lyuii was
whit is called a crack -hut. ��� ut both
missed at tbe first fire. KlTorts wero
then made by Mr. Robertson and
Mr. Reade to bring about an understanding or reconciliation, but both gentlemen were proud and Mr. Lelievre, it
is snid, would not agree to an nmicnblo
settlement and the pistols were reloaded
and the principals were again placed on
the ground. At a word, both pistols
exploded together and Mr. Lyon fell
heavily backward, shot though, the
heart. Thn ball entered below the leveled right arm and lie was dead before
Mr. Lelievre aud Mr. Reade got to him.
Mr. Wilson nnd Mr. Robertson at once
gave themselves np to the authorities,
but were acquitted by the jury at the
ensuing assizes at Brockville. Mr. Lelievre at once left the country nnd died
a few years ago at Sierra Leoiin on the
west coast of Africa. Mr. Wilson practiced law at London, Canada West, nnd
as yon know became the Hon. Mr. Justice Wilson of the Common Pleas, but
the death of poor Mr. Lyon. I know,
was a lifo long, heart felt sorrow to him
nntil the day he died, a few years ago,
crowned wi.th years and honor."
This was the last duel in Ontario. It
excited innch interest throughout the
country and the tragic pathos of Lyon's
death showed the terrible natnre of the
custom divested of its tnediicval vanities and fantastic nonsense. It served
to extinguish forever the few embers of
the old duelling spirit that still .fitfully
smouldered throughout tho Cnnadtts.
It died with dignity, however, and,
painful as it may be, the thought of
those two proud gallant lads facing
death ou thut June morning long ago.

To say that the hospital hull wns n
success is to express it very mildly.
The hall took place on Monday evening
Feb. 2/ith, in tho Alexander Hull,
���ahout 40 couple being present. The
hall was tastefully decorated with
Hags, bunting, etc. Tho ball was
oponed with a Grand Promenade and
Lancers about !) o'clock, waltzes, jer-
���jseys, ripples, quadrilles, scbottisches,
polkas, bou tons, rockaways, etc.,
followed in profusion. Messrs. W.
Woodhoiiso, piano, and F. Kincaid,
violin, were tho mus'cians and too
much cannot be said in favor ol their
performances. Floor Manager Warren
is also deserving of credit for his
services. Quito u number wero present
from Donald, thero wero also a few
from Kamloops, Beaver, Field and
Palliser. ' An adjournment was made
��t 12:30 for lunch, after whicli dancing was resumed and kept up till ��
n.m. The fioor was in excellent condition, which combined with the first
Class music added greatly to tho enjoyment of the dancers. The dance
broke up with the singing of "God
Save tho Qiieen," and '-Attld Lang
Syne." Through the kindness of the
Secretary we are oiiablod to publish a

Lady Aberdeen's llrl.lnl Tour.
A picture of Lady Aberdeen in her
bridal robes, compar* 1 with n sequence
of photographic portraits of the Countess from the time she was a tiny Miss
Mnffett, three years old, hugging a pet
dog, up to tho time sho wns a young
lady of eighteen, shows tho deepening
and strengthening of her individuality
in n degree that is tlie delight of those
students of character who Bays that
more important than any voluntary expression of personality is the involuntary tale told by a series of pictures.
It is quite in keeping witli tho fine,
large, deep, sympathetic eyes that are
the handsomest fenfire of Lady Aberdeen's face, thut she should not lose
sight of tlio cause of Immunity with
which she is so thoroughly at one, even
on her bridal tour, when she found timo
and room to make a clonk of her great-
heiirtedness for some of the suffering of
God's creatures.
Tho Earl and Countess went to Egypt
for their honeymoon; before they returned they had become tho guardians
of five Egyptian lads, one of whom they
found suffering from persecution because of his having accepted Christianity, and the otlier four weru on sale in
the market-place and nbout to be cap
tured by a slave dealer.��� Azelia Grant
