to say that the preparations for the comfort and convenience of visitors surpass
anything attempted here befote, while
the program of sports of various kinds
leads one to ask how they can crowd
them all into oue day's amusement.
The half fare on the railways should

A surprise party consisting of some
two dozen friends laden with abundance of good things waited on Mrs. C.
Richards on Monday evening. Mrs.

Mrs. Strathearn acted-as accompanist
and a very enjoyable time was spent.

Fernie football team won the fastest
and most exciting s-ame of the season
at Cranbrook on Friday. ? Cruubrook
has secured all the > best talent of the
district and felt so sure of wia-iirg that
then put up all kinds of money. They
evidently thought it was the lacrosse
,team,they_hadii,un_ip,again8t__but_J,he,
game euded 2 goals to 1 in favor of
Fornie. After the match, a banquet
was tendered the Feruie team aiid the
boys are loud in their praises, oi the
generous treatment extended, them by
the people of Cranbrook. The town
was wide open and Fernie was
not allowed to dip down for the small
est expense! in fact so well were they
treated that some could not tear themselves away, _ud.it was ulong the first
days of this week "before they--managed to make a break for home. It is
expected that Cranbrook will send a
team to compete for the Miners a Medals
on Dominion Day, although Fernie expects to win out.

Canada is very touchy npon the
subject of religion in schools One
creed is about as good as another as
it is only a matter of how chijdren
are trained in their youth. If,, it is
deeply impressed upon a child when
his brain is in the soft, formative
stage he will believe anything. In
the desire to give children religious
training the most vital things to this
life are lost sight of. and children are
allowed to grow up without a' proper
knowledge of material affaire, and in
consequence a great percentage of
the population is vyholly or partially
wrecked before the age ot 21.   "

lALQNG THE CROW!
CRANBROOK
They,ve a queer way of doing things
at Elko, according to a report received
this weok from that popular summer
resort. It appears that the annual
school meeting was held there on Saturday, and only nine days notice instead ot the legal 10 were given. The
hours were from 11 to 4, thus' shutting
out a large number of.-qui'liticd ratepayers, although' request's'''wore ~iitn.de
to extend tho hours sufficient to alliw
them tobe present. Those present,
consisted of the three trustees, the
Kchoolmaster and another. The school
master occupied tho chair, which ho
should not have done, aud the old trustees were re-appointed.'each voting for
the others. One of tho trustee.- thought
it was his turn to be appointed secretary, so he nominated himself. Many
of the ,ratcpayi'.i'H think, this matter
should bo brought before the Board of
Education for re-adjustim-nt. l*

is to he expended for labor. At present
the company is producing about 4,000

The intention is to build a pole line

IN THE SLOOAN
The Slocan is still, eilverv,, but
raiher'sleepy. Some, say that .the
walls in the formation aro too close
together, and others that the camp
needs deep milling in order to make
it really great us a mineral producer.
The only paper left in the Slocan ' is
making a strong editorial llg.t
against tho railroad and smelter
cinch, but it seems like a forlorn
hope. If capital has laid a plot to
-choke the Slocan mines to death
. there is little chance to light against
it, but if Nature litis placed most of
the oro in the' deep levels 'capital
.alone can '• take it out. The Slocan
has yielded millions from the surface.
It may have billions concealed iu the
the region ot its boots, a., ..
Slocan City;
Slocan City is drooping tor the lack
of mining activity. Tom Mulvey is
keeping a butcher shop, arid, scarcely the sound of a gurgle is heard in
the seven hotels. The Ottawa' tnii.e
is about the only anchor holding the
town froin flying away in a financial
cyclone. A few men are pounding
the drill at the Chapleau, whilo an
occasional shot on the hill■ proves"
that the prospectors are not all dead.
Parties' have1 been looking at the'
Hope, on Lemon Creel-. ' This property contains an enormous amount of
iron and zinc, and should be doing
sotiiething. . A,, wagon road is'being
built to the Neepawa, on Ten Mile,
aod four men are breaking rock in
that property.. The Swedes who had
a lease on it last winter to .ik out ,£9.-
,000 in six-weeks, and are now looking at the birds in Europe; while the
owners have concluded to.tackle the
proposition themselves.
"        "-    Siivertoif     :
miners now buy their seeks in the
east and drink mountain water.
There arc still eight hotels in Sandon
and they pay $500 a year licence.
Flow the feat is performed has never
been made public. Since Cameron
fenced in his chickens- Dutch Jake
has not had to kill 611c of them in
self defense. Jake is no relation to
the ohap in Nelson wha puts up the
plots on the Tribune. Billle Bennett
lias a new partner, and Bob Cunning
jjias not been in California for several
days while Ed McLeod _iiys that business is excellent, and the key of the
main entrance is. still lost.-'About
250 men are working around Sandon,
but the camp will have over 1000
when George Huston knocks out tho
enemy. Here's to Sandon, one of the
best town's that ever nestled in1 the
hills.
Woman as a Miner
Thc'Mining aiid Engineering Review
pays this tribute'to woman for the pari
she lias played in mining. There are
not many old time Minors who cannot
recall some notable example of a woman's assistiHice and encouragement in
helping lo make a dividend payer out
of a prospect. These, al least, will
appreciate thecomplinicnt paid to her
in-these words.
In mining, as in every other avenue
of human advancement, woman has
borne and is bearing her part. , And
why not? for the mineral industry, perhaps more than any other is the epf-
tome of clean and honest gains, and il
is but suitable that .woman, the best
aiid, most worthy portion of the race,
should also take her part. Here's lo
the woman in mining!   God bless her.
Silverton is still an ideal spot for.
the home of a poet. Many of • the
miners who made it -their homo for
years have scattered to many parts
of tho country, and Davys is trying
to run his properties with non-union
men. It is reported that 500 tons ot
low grade oro from the Emily Ediih
will be hauled to tho Wakefield mill,
and a test made of its value. About
,10 men are employed in tho mines
back of Silverton, and only a watchman can be seen at.tho Rockland
and Galena Farm;"

Love Letter After "20" yenrs
__   New York Sim — "
Although belated more than 20 years,
a love letter appointing a tryst has
been discovered and forwarded to the
person addressed, Alonso Birdsall .1
inotbrTiaii. who lives in Darby, Pa.
Hirdsall was born and raised near Hay
City, Mich., and there lie met, wooed
and won his wife, who was a Miss
Parkinson.
Her parents and his people occupied
adjoining farms, but owing to temporary- feud, the young people's love did
not rim smoothly, They courted on
the sly, and to facilitate meeting,' used
lo leave letters for each other in a hollow of an old elm tree. One day
death came to the Birdsall family,
and the feud was suddenly terminated.
In the excitment Missl'arkinson totally
forgot a letter bhe had just lutt in the
tree.
The harriers removed, the. lovers
married, and about ten years ngo
moved to Philadelphia. The other day
Hirdsall received n letter from his
brother, which explained that in chopping dew n nn old elm ho had found a
note, which he enclosed, Although
weather beaten and discolored, the
writing was legible, lt ran: "John,
Dear—Meet me al the willows tonight,
Kllen." "
