Mr. J. M. Kellie, M. I��, !>., returned to Rovelstoke after making a trip through the Lardeau
puss and down lo Koolenay Lake
via the proposed trail from Trout
Lake.
Mr, Haskins had almost completed tbo trail to Trout Lake
then, and it wus arranged thai
Mr. Nugle should work up from
Kootenay Luke until bo mot Mr.
Haskins.
Tbe building of this trail opens
up a country of great promise,
rich in minerals and also possessing a considerable acreage of
land Buitablo for funning, This
laud is being rapidly taken up,
and prospectors who knew something ol the mineral wealth in
tbe country are goiug in iu
numbers from north und South.
Mr. Kellie picked up some
pieces oi float reck on his way
through, which he says give undoubted evidence of tbe rich
character ot quart? ledges yot to
bo discovered. Good results huve
been obtained from primped
work in lhe pluuer minus uf the
Lardeau, and their development
will also be a source of consider,
able revenue to the country and
reward to the workoi's of tho
diggings. Tho limber in the
country is also oi excellent quality and ot almost unlimited
quantity.
Mr. Kollio said ho lound everything brisk at Ainsworlli, where
a number of mining properties
have been disposed of to American cnpitulisl, who havo great
faith in lbe camp and wiil upend
money in developing their mines.
Nelson, loo, continues lo go
iilionei, nn 1 tbo whole lako country is enjoying u wave ef pron-
p'imy which will bring Kootenay
lo iho 11 out as tho greatest miuiug country iu the world.
Dominion Day dawned bright and
warm, as if naturo were in sympathy
with tbe citizens of Revelstoke in
their celebration of tbe seventy-
fourth anniversary of the confederation of tbe provinces of British
North America into tbo Dominion of
Canada. The Uuioo Jack waved
proudly from the Court House flag
stall', and patriotic citizens alao made
a display of bunting, while small
boys fired intermittent salutes of
of fire crackers.
The celebration proper did not
begiu until the afternoon, the niorn-
iug being spent in preparation for
the oomiug festivities.
By two o'clock the streets were
well lined with the populace of the
town, augmented by numbers who
oanio np on the Lytton, every available veranda, baloony, and place of
vantage for Bight seeing being occupied,
An interesting programme of athletic sports was successfully carried
out, Mr. J. Kirkup and Cupt. Sanderson, acting as judges and management oommittee.
Competition was keen in almost
every event, and no competitor had
a monoply of the winnings, as tbe
prize list will show. Mr. J. P.
Sutherland, proved himself the
champion of tbe day, making tbe
best record in apeed, weight throning, and jumping. Steve White,
though be did not give us good an
account of himself ub usual, owing
to a slight luui'Uiesss, also did well.
The following is the

A matched race was run by Wm.
Fleming and uu Indian employed on
the Lytton, over tbe 100 yards
course. Flomiug took the lead at
tbe start, and tho rod man was not iu
it, beiug several yards behind ut tbe
finish,
A tug of war owing to misunderstanding could uot he arranged, and
this event wus crossed oil the programme,
IIOIISI* HACKS.
Considerable interest was ovinced
in a serios of horse races, the blooded stock of tbe towu having been
taken from work aud placed iu active
training a day previous. A strong
looking gray horse owned by the
Revelstoke Lumber Co., which had
a record of tuakiug a stri.le of over
20 feet iu a trial of speed, was the
favorite, Ho wus ridden by Johu
Newberry, uud tbe red white and
blue was freely offered against the
field, Aural-unison's big bay,
which comes of racing stock and in
years past won a race or two'at Kamloops, wns ��� backed against tho
doughty gray, by many wbo believed that he had not forgotten bow
to move. Mr. F. McCarty'�� "Butchers Maid" was also entered mounted
by her owner. The course was over
the road from the Victoria Houso
aud the winner of the two heats iu
three won the purse. Tbe horses
got a good sturt. but the grav
stumbled and almost fell. His
rider held bim np, and made a good
break to catch tbe bay who weut to
the front with a long stride. Neilson
on the Abrubamson horso did not
have to use whip or spur and won
the first heat by about a length,
the gray second and tbe chestnut
mare bringing up the rear.
Although a change of position was
confidently looked for in the second
heut, none occurred and the buy
won with hands down, the beat being
a repetition of the first. The third
heat was not necessary.
POKY   BACE
A pony race was uext arranged,
being called at 7 o'clock in the even-
ing. In this four variously favored
steeds, ridden by Johu Newberry,
John Neilsou, Wm; Fleming and
Bob Green, were entered and did '
lively work, making tbe prettiest
race of the day. Newberry's buy-
was the favorite, but very litlle het
iug was done, The horses started
well together and kept well in a
buneh for a hundred yards or so.
when the little bay mare ridden by
Newberry went to the front, Neil-
son's strawberry at her heels, .with
Fleming and Green following, ia tbo
order named. These positions were
maintained to the wire, tbo bay
mare winning by half a length.
The second heat in this race was
also a repetition of the first, the
leader beiug a more pronounced
winner, lending Neilson's horse by-si
couple of lengths.
EVENING CEU-BUATION.    l   '
When Rovelstoke people go in for
a good time they do not put '-a stop
to festivities when tbe sun goe-i
down, Under the direotion of .Mr.
Fred Fruser, a sociable wus held iu
the sohool house iu tbe evening, beginning at 8 o'clock, Mr. Fraser-
occupied the chair, und called upou
Mr. T. L. Hiig, to eleliver aa oration on "Dominion Day." Mr.
Haig made nn appropriute speech
after v-biob Mr. Barber contributed
a son, "The Irish Minstrel." Mrs.
Creelmau also gave a song in ber
usual good style, when we cream
and oake were served, and there wai
abundant evideuoe that everyone
was having u goal time.

Together tbey strolled, and his pas- 16lunjjMg .,'��� u, i\iu n-jatiors bot

In pleadim? ami tremulous tone,
While softly tbey trod on tbe blossom strewn flod,
And spooned in tbe twilight alone.
Then Bweetly she sighed ub she shyly

With tender and fairylike mean;
She murmured the word, wLou a war

A rival had buret on the Bcene.
It savage-Zulu to the trysting place

Demanding his Cannibal bride;
But tbe Hottentot said, with a toss
of bis head.
"I'll have thy degenerate hide."
The Hottentot flew at ths savage
Zulu,
The Zulu he went for the Blade,
Aud    fiercely  they  vied  iu  their
strength and tbeir pride,
And fought for tbo Cannibal Maid.
She perched on a stone, whith u
shapely shin bone
Clasped light iu her tapering arms
And watched the blood tlv with a love
liiden eye
While the wanies fi,lis'ht for her
charm.'.
When fiercer they fought and the
ringing blows caught
With thrust and  with  parry and
punch.
She said, with a smile, "In a very
abort while
I will have those two  fellows  for
lunch."
The purple blood  flows from tbe
Hottentot's nose,
The Zulu is struck by the Blade;
Then each of tbem sighed, a gasping���he died,
And looked on Ihe Cannibal Maid.
Sbe made a nice stew of the sava-.e

And scrambled the   Hottentot's

'Twas a oainty menu when the cooking was through,
And she dined on her lovers' remains.

Both sleep in a Cannibal tomb;
Tbe three were made oue, aud tho
