The hard fought legal  battle
which has occupied   the time
and attention of court and jury,
since the opening of the assizes
at Fernie on the 17th, came to a I
conclusion last Saturday after-!
noon when the jury filed  back |
into court, after an  absence of j
little more than an  hour,  with
a verdict of "not guilty" in the
Coal   Creek    hold-up   case   in
which Fred Varlow, ex-provincial  policeman,  and Nat  Bab-
occk were charged  with  being
parties in the hold-up.
The two Bellinger boys, who
had admitted their complicity
in the crime, were witnesses
against Varlow and Babcock,
and the corroboration of their
evidence by other witnesses
was the task undertaken by
the crown.
The verdict was a surprise to
many, the general opinion
seeming to be that the best
that the defendants could hope
for was a disagreement, but
the jury saw it differently and
acquitted the two men.
The cross examination of
Varlow, the last witness for
the defence, was concluded on
Friday and W. R. Ross, K. C,
spoke to the jury for three
hours making a very exhaustive review of the evidence and
using every scrap of matter
that could be made to help his
It was generally conceded
to be his best effort before a
local court, and judging by the
result, carried weight with the
twelve men to whom it was
W. A. Macdonald, K. C, representing the crown, took
much loss time than did Mr.
Ross, speaking but an hour,
though in that hour he went
over the main features of the
evidence, making perhaps, the
best impression upon his hearers in his analysis of that
portion of the evidence describing the occurrence of the actual
hold-up on the night of the 19th
of Feburary as given by
Qunney, Baird, the three boys
who witnessed it, their running
to Varlow to tell him of what
was going on, and the evidence
of Varlow himself explaining
his actions upon that occasion.
The charge to the jury of
His Lordship, Chief Justice
Gordon Hunter, was brief,
concise and to the point,
occupying but a few minutes.
His Lordship left for Cranbrook, where he will preside at
a short session of the asssizes
court this week, returning to
Fernie on the 7th of June when
the jury is ordered to again report for duty. The case arising
out of the death of L. Riley at
Dorr, 38 miles south of Fernie,
on the G. N. railway, last Sunday night, will probably come
up for trial. Young Streeter,
whom it is alleged killed Riley
by a blow of his fist, will probably bo tried upon some
charge not yet formulated.

Prominent British Columbian Becomes a Bigamist
That Dorothy Russell, daughter of Lillian Russell, the well-
known actress, eloped six weeks
ago with Robin W. Dunsmuir
son of Liut-Governor Dunsmuir of British Columbia, and
that the couple are now living
in Mazatlan is the news brought
to San Francisco by the steamer
San Juan, which arrived a few
days ago from Central American
According to the story told by
passengers on the .San Juan,
Miss Russell and Dunsmuir
left San Francisco on the Cosmos liner Ituari and after visiting a number of Central
American cities established a
a residence at Mazatlan. Miss
Russell paid the coast a visit
several months ago, and it is
said that during her stay sho
was frequently seen in the company of Dunsmuir who is a married man. That the couple had
successfully planned an elopement was not known until the
arrival of the San Juan to-day.
Dunsmuir's wife who formerly
was Miss Madge Arlington
Shubert, a beautiful Suasolito,
claims to know nothing of the
elopement but says she does
not know the present whereabouts of her husband.
The marital troubles of the
couple were given considerable
notoriety a year ago, and it was
reported at that time that Mrs.
Dunsmuir would begin suit for
divorce on the grounds of cruelty and humiliation. A reconciliation was affected, it is said,
through the intervention of Mr.
Dunsmuir's parents, who wished
to avert notoriety.

Fight the Typhoid Fly
It is none too soon the campaign against the typhoid-carrying    house    fly.    With    the
coming of summer and  warm
weather the pest breeds with a
rapidity that soon increases its
numbers   beyond   computation
and the only remedy is to begin
tlie warfare   against   it   now.
Every man or woman in  Hos-1
mer  should  take part  in  this
It is but a   small matter for j
each citizen  to do  his or her j
share and the total effort should i
be a saving of health and  even
of many lives.
Scientists have demonstrated
that the fly is one of the most
active of agencies is the spread
of contagion, particularly of
typhoid fever and other germ
diseases that often become
epidemic. The fly carries tlie
germs on his feet which come
in direct contact with our food.
The favorite breeding places
of flies are in piles of rubbish
and in barn refuse. The best
way to fight the pest is to
eliminate dirt. Keep the garbage cans clean and covered.
Do not allow rubbish and dirt
to accumulate. Keep your
house and yard, your store or
factory scrupulously clean. In
that way the number of flies
will be reduced to a minimum,
which will mean a lessening of
the victems of contagion. It
may mean life and death to
you or one of your family or
friends. It is a small thing
for each one to do, so small
that no one can afford to be

It is interesting to trace tho change
of meaning which tho term hackney has
undergone. Sir Walter GUbey, in hit)
work im ''The Harness Horse," says:
• * The hackney being a saddle borse, men |
wbo hired out horses Por journeys were
called hackney men." Thus in [process
of time the name came to signify a
hired horse, and we have cviiler.ee that
the "hackney man," or jobmaster, kept
in exceedingly good stamp of animal.
The word "hackney" having come to
mean a horse that could be hired, by

scars (horse-shoo shaped, like a
grizzly's upper jaw, on the one side,
ragged and long mi the other, and, on
top, straight across like a knife slash).
the scars thai told of injuries that had
allowed the skull covering to drape his
neck like a cape during that terrible
hike to camp. We had looked at his
lower jaw which bad hung down against
his chest and which he had had to carry
id liis hand Cor miles; we had seen the
marks nf tho bear's tusks in his arm

said, in a matter-of-fact, way, for lie is

"The queer part of it to me is that

A bit mare powwow about the surgery, the kindness of Dr. Ilasell and

Christie jumped aside, feeling for his
lemife; but as he jumped Ids foot struck
a sung. ITn fell, and beforo he touched
the snow the bear was upon him,
"lie didn't use his forerlegs." said
Christie, in telling of it. "He just

lie returned at daylight with two clog
trains and Indian mushers. One of the
toboggans was rigged into a rude eur-
icle, and Christie, now so sore and still
that the slightest move was agony, was
tucked in among blankets and furs.

now, was the most, terrible feature of
liis whole adventure. The trail, nr

SVENSON and Jones sat at a small
table in the corner saloon, drinking their evening beer. Their station  in life was lowly; thev st.iked the
furnaces and ministered unto ihe complaining tenantry of flat buildings, with

i hristie, when he tells the story,
touches lightly on thc oveutu that foi-
lwed the death of the bear. When tlie
pain and tlie cold brought him back to
itill consciousness, the prospect before
him was one calculated tn daunt the
stoutest heart ed. The snow was red
with blood for four feel, around the
scene of tbe struggle. Christie's clothes
were soaked with it and he was fast be-
rimiing weal;. His Bcalp draped down
from his bare skull on the back and at
both sides, like the flap nf a patent cap;
his lower jaw fell limp; his left eye was
torn so that he could not see, would
never see again, ho thought at the time;
his right arm was torn aud broken; his
tiiigh was bitten through, and his right
eye was blood blinded. All in all, with
camp seven miles away, Christie thought
the best plan would be to pick out the
softest spot, crawl into it aud die,
But something inside of him wouldn't
let hi.n tlo that without a flg-ht, and
against what seemed impossible odds,
the man began to win his way home.
On figuring matters out, Christio remembered thai his partner Crislield
would not think of looking for him if
he shouldn't show up for two or three
days, because the arrangement had been
that Christie should be away for some
little time. Christie also remeuiberod
that there were im medicines of any
kind at camp, because he and his partner had not yet moved all of their stores
in. Ilis own common sense told him
again and again that he was only giving
lit iself needless agony in. trying to
reach camp—fhat, be would

Bul the something inside

Half an hour elapsed before Christie
could get on his feet. Once there he
staggered about like a drunken man.
The first move was io try to stanch the
Mow of blood, but ihe wounds were so
many and so varied that this was almost
impossible. Christie could not use liis
right arm at all, and the left arm was
strained. Csing this arm as best he
could, however, be pulled the torn pieces
of his scalp together and bound it roughly witli his neckerchief. Then ho put
his jacket over his head, lifted his lower
jaw into place, and caught the ends of
his jacket under his chin to hold it
there. In tins fashion he set out on the
seven mile tramp over the river ice to
camp, On the way, as a precaution, ho
made a painful detour of half a mile to
a deserted prospector's shack to leave
a message. Ife knew that Crislield would
probably call at this shack sooner or
later, ('hristie wrote a laborious left-
handed note and put a stone on it in thc
cabin. In the note he told whomsoever
found it that ho had fought with and
beon mauled by a bear, and that he was
starting for camp, and that if he didn't
arrive  there  his  bodv  would  be   found
u a
bauling thongs to the uttermost. The
slightest motion meaut pain to Christie;
thc sudden jolts and jerks were hell.
The blood that had been stanched to
some extent began to ooze from tho
wounds again, and at every jolt of the
sled the man thought his head would
come off. Even the bliss of unconsciousness was denieu him and he lay, hour
after hour, in exquisite agony, feeling
the life ebbing out of him, growing
weaker steadily, and finally praying for
speedy death.
There   was   time,   too,
dians,  a   superstitious   folk,   broke   into
open mutiny and decided to go back.    It
was   Crisfield's   turn    for   action—and   this.'

On the afternoon of the fourth day
after lighting with tho bear, the dog
train reached Lansing. Lansing consists of a small stockade and one or two
small buildings, and is kept by a trader
named Fcrrol, a personal friend of
Christie. There was no surgeon or physician nearer than Dawson, but Ferrol
had some skill as an amateur and an in- |mn<r|]t a widder

plaster cast or si itches; his jaw hitched
itself into a semblance of its proper
shape, although it had to he "tinkered

On New Year's Day, Christie, now
about "as good as ever,'' to use his own
expression, was ready to start for Dawson. Tbe journey by sled this time was
pleasant in comparison with the trip
from Rogue River out to Lansing. Oris-
tield, overjoyed at his partner's rapid
recovery, accompanied the party as far
as Mayo and then turned hack to .'odd
down the camp on the distant Rogue until Christie was (it for the field again.
Christie readied Dawson on January 17.
The physician he saw there had nothing
more to do than lo tap an abscess that
had formed on Christie's chock. He ad
vised him, however, '.o go out to Victoria as soon as possible and place himself under tbe cave of Dr, 0. M. Jones.
Consequently, Christie came south for
the remainder of the winter. His arm
subsequently had to be reset and his
jaw needed attention before it could be
made to close properly, but Christie will
be ready for business again before the
summer of 1010 is well advanced.

a smile, repeating a question. "No,

Thero was a girl in the village, fait
haired and full bosomed, who caused
much loose talk among the men. Her
friendship Svenson sought, '' for t he
good of her soul,'' as he told himself,
mistaking mere elemental instinct for
a spiritual call. His efforts at conversion only transformed himself into an
idolater of the world-old pagan creed,
A quarrel with his patron, the preacher, resulted, after which he and his
young woman took train for The City,
unheeding its threats, hearing only its
promises. After two black weeks of
idleness, which almost exhausted his
savings, he found work as a janitor,
and the young couple settled down to
housekeeping in a gloomy coll between
the boilers and the coal-bin, passing as
man and wife, though without benefit
of clergy.

At Limoges there is held each year

it is upon these meu that the big deal

Silver Embroidered Gray Voile Gown Over White Satin
The black  evening gown  lias not  of late been  nearly si
popular ;i> ii few seasons since.   Certuinly every well gownod l
win-Kin   includes   ;it    least   one   smart    evening   gown     in
lier season's outfit, but no longer is it possible to Peel smartly |
gowned in a black gowu for any ami every occasion.   To be i
effective now tha black gown must be of tho richest quality
and must bo conspicuously trimmed to look as smart as the i
gown ni light  color.    The'crystal, steel, silver, gold aud diamante trimmings  will  transform  any  black gown,  and the
embroidered tulle tunics arc of immense assistance this sen-:
seii in giving the desired note of clTeetivcncss.
A  revival of a charming fashion of many years ago is;
seen   iu  the evening gowns that   are   cut   round   instead  of
sou arc and finished v\itli the plain bertha of chiffon or tulle,
edged with fringe of silver, crystal or gold.    A black satin
gowu made in this fashion with a tunic or borders in black
tulle ami the bertha edged with silver, bead fringe and silver
roses when- the berth a fastens, is most becoming.   The same
model, however, carried out  in rose pink or a light shade of
nattier blue  is more effective.    This season great attention
is paid to the linos as well ns the trimming of the waists of
evening gownsj there are several attractive styles with the
square lines, but among the newest are mure with the round
off the shoulder cut; the kimono effect is again given by the
surplice folds of chiffon over the shoulders or by  the lace
that goes over the shoulders and finishes the top of the waist. I
Tho fashion still prevails of the sleeve dropping below the |
shoulder quite apart from the gown, but  the lace that trims {
the  waist shields the arm  Itself and softens the rather too
eccentric effect wonderfully.
Lnce is used this   sea sun   more   lavishly   than over and
flounceB, berthas and shawls of real lace family heirlooms are!
now being brought out from treasure hexes and made use of.
Flounces, with bertha to match, trim satin voile do sole
gowns ut* all shades, and the Iftce is so used that  its beauty)
of design   and  texture   is  displayed   to  the   best  advantage.'
Embroidered nets and laces that are not to be found in any!
treasure box, but are of the mbst recont manufacture, are in
great, demand for tho summer evening gowns, and there nre!
many women who contend   that   the  modern   laces can be
utilized to far better advantage than can the most valuable
old family lace, especially as one of the strongest of unwritten laws, to the effect that  real hue must never be cut, exerts the most exlinordinary  inlluence over all  women,    The;
embroidered nets and laces of the moment are certainly beau- j
tit'nl enough tu satisfy the must cnptiouB critic, and it must j
In- conceded that it is far simpler to deal with the new thnn
with tho old.
Silver ami gold  lacos ure extremely  fasbionnblo and ave
well adapted for the trimming of ull evening gowns.   Thoro
arc m-niN  different designs nnd textures, sume light and fine
with more net than design, ethers heavy of mesh and heavily
embroidered us well.   There are shaped tunics and garnitures]
nf net  nnd  lace, embroidered  in gold or si Ivor, that trans j
form the simplest satin or voilo de side gown into u superb
and costly  ball gown,    A  heavy mesh of silver net  studded j
with silver beads and a heavy gold  not with border of gold1
beuds are effective with a gown nf satin made with draped!
skirt.     These   motul   luces  are  quite  transparent,  and,   lined
with pale pink chiffon, give thu effect of u  much lower cut
waist than if the wulsl were of satin, and It is surprising how
[soft  and pliable are the Iucch, f.u   it  is not difficult  to drape!
them in fichu or bertha effect.
They are to be had also at such a wide rango of prices
that they can be utilized with oven a comparatively luoxpeti
■Ivp  material  or  in   Freshening  a  gown  thai   has'hud  Imrd
i usage and needs doing over, Al the same time the most ,
inexpensive gowns pan bo suitably trimmed with the ex i
pensive embroidered gold or Ml\er Ineo. All kinds of embroidered   nets  end   laces  arc  smart   this  season,  and   licav.
I silk embroidery, colored, is combined with the finest hn-c net '

Hosmer Visits Coal Creek
The game of football played
by Coal Creek and Hosmer was
a league fixture and was played
at Coal Creek, on Saturday
May 28th. The bout ended by
Coal Creek making a win of 2
goals to 1.
The game was pretty fast
.•mil the play was good, though
Balderson was slightly incon-
vienienced by his glim colliding
with the ball, he thought it was
Just before the game commenced Coal Creek pressed
forward the Hosnier frontal
line wavered and Coal Creek
scored the first goal. However
Hosmer came up in the Creek
end of the field and Davis
headed through from a magnificent corner the kick taken by-
Weaver. I losmer took courage
in their boots after this and
the play was constantly in the
enemys ground. When the
one-eyed referee gave a foul
for "hands" against Geo. McQueen a rattlebrained decision
as the Hosmer boys thought as
the "hands" was purely of the
accidental order.
Billy McFegan scored from
the resulting free kick and half
time arrived with the score 2-
1 in favor of the Creek.
The second half proved a
tame exhibition forwards of
both sides showing no pressing
abilities and the defined on
either side showing up well
Hosnier was at a disadvantage
owing to the damage to the
Balderson optic. Allan proved
the best back on the field.
Guest and McQueen showed up
well as half backs, but the forwards were pretty raggy dope
Weaver being the best.
Lame shoulder is almost
invariable caused by rheumatism of the muscles and yields

of Chamberlain's Liniment.
This liniment is not only
prompt and effectual, but in no
way disagreeable to use. Sold
by all druggists.
For Campers.
Don't when in the woods
throw down a lighted match,
cigar stub or other flaming object; make sure that the flame
has been thoroughly extinguished before throwing it away.
Don't build your camp fire
larger than is necessary.
Don't under any circumstances, leave your fire unguarded,
even for a comparatively short
time; see that it is out before
you go away.
Dou't build your fire in leaves,
rotten wood or other inflammable material.
Don't build your fire against
a large or hollow log when it is
hard to be sure it has been
thoroughly put out.
To these dont's it may be added that in windy weather, or
in a dangerous place it is well
to confide the fire in a hole dug
clean down to the mineral soil;
a fire may smoulder in the humus or dtilf for many days, only
waiting for a strong breeze to
fan it into flames that may burn
over miles of timber.
Summer tourists and campers
unfortunately have a bad reputation among the owners of
timber limits as being a frequent
cause of fires. Such fires could
be prevented almost without
exception by a little extra care
on the part of the campers, who
have been the unintentional
cause of much forest destruction,
and who have just as real an
interest in the preservation of
the forests as the owners of the
timber themselves. The rules
given above are tho result of
long experience and observation
on the part of many woodsmen
and lumbermen as to the origin
of fires from this cause, and are
earnestly commended to the
attention of campers, sportsmen
and others.—Ex.
Coal Opprations at Kipp, Alta.
A coal shaft is to be sunk
about a mile and a half from
Kipp. Some fifty men will be
employed and seven cars of
lumber are on their way to
build houses, offices, etc. This
mine is situated to the east.

sinking a test hole to the south,
are keeping it very dark as to
their prospects. Macwilliam, to

white clay.
