; The ball game between Revelstoke
.and Kmlerby did not eventuate, the
[latter team being unable to get here
I in time. An exhibition game between thc Corley House and the Intermediates was put up, resulting in
a win for the former with a score of
nine to three.
FIREMEN'S RACKS.
The races between No. 1 nnd 2 Fire
Brigades, held every Labor Day, aro
perhaps the most popular of any of
the sporting events tbat take place.
Doth tbo wet tesl and bub am! bib
were won last year by No. 1 Fire
Brigade, and a considerable am h ,*t
of friendly rivalry exists between tic
two brigades over the winning '.!
these trophies. The wet and mu Idy
condition of the road on McKenzie
avenue on Monday made running
very difficult. In thc hub and hub,
No. 2 crossed thc line first with No.
1 a close second, excellent time being made in spile of thc slippery
surface of tbe street. No. 1 ran
first  in tlie wet test,  but owing      to
pitch a little tricky.     Tne following

THIRD ANNUAL FALL FAIR*
Unqualified Success-First Class
Horse facing-Poultry Exhibit
the breat teature-Splendiu
Fruits and Vegetables
The    Third   Annual     Fall   Fair  has
again b'.'cn a pracrloal demonstration of tbe lerlility of the soil, the
energy and enterprise of the people
and the honest Interest taken ia tbe
I industries and tbe development of
tho natural resources with which
Revelstoke is so happily blest. The
fair luiB conic and goii,, and all we
bave now is its memory to dream
over uud contemplate the benefits
thut we hope to derive from a movement of tins kind. Tbe number of
exhibits this year were well up to
the murk both ln iinulity und quantity, and anyone who ubose to rc-
iuumber the fair of I'JU'J could plainly sec that there bus been wonderful
progress made during the past year
in fruit growing, horticulture aud'
vegetable growing, while the poultry hus taken enormous Btrloos In
keen enthusiasm displayed by all
the members of tbe Association.
THE POULTRY  EXHIBIT.
In passing the poultry exhibit deserved more than ordinary attention
and general surprise lias been ox-
pressed at tho large number of exhibits and the magnificent quality of
the stock shown. Few people in
Revelstoke realize what a great work
tbc poultry tanciurs here were doing
but n stroll through tbe orderly und
well arranged building conclusively
proved what large proportions this
brunch ol industry lias assumed. The
striking point of the whole wus thc
splendid condition of tbo birds, in
spite of tbo fact thnt this is the
moulting .I'lisiin, nnd really not the
best time to show poultry at ita
best. Every breed wns represented,
nml all were line specimens. This
department wns admirably managed,
being in the bands of J. J. Devine,
and the whole exhibit was a .credit
to the Poultry Association and a
greut factor in bringing local poultry iH'fore the public oye. Never
was such a tine collection seen hero
before.
THE MANAGEMENT.
President A. McRae, ably assisted
by Vicc-Prcs. A. J. McDonell, and
Secretary  Field,  carried out  all    nr-
angementa with indefatigable energy, everything working smoothly.
The difficulty in transportation to
the grounds on the first day was
remedied on tbe second, while thc
s.s. Revelstoke wat kindly lent for
tbc occasion, and afforded a delightful means of visiting thc grounds.
THE GROUNDS.
The grounds nnd track were in
lirst class condition, the former being cleared of all brush, weeds and
other rubbish. From tbe grand
stand towards the main entrance wus
n small "midway" consisting of refreshments and tea stands and
ninny side shows, und two
churches, St. Peter's uud the Metho-
disr church did u large business in
tea and light refreshments, while H.
Manning and R. Muson dispensed
candy, fruit nnd other dainties. Several other side shows consisting of a
Palmist, ring throwing, etc., and a
large booth containing the West wood
family from New Zealand, mad! up
the midway attractions. The fat
boy and girl drew a big crowd.
Much interest was taken by the
people in tbu race horses and the
stables were visited by large numbers. Tbo grand stand was well
tilled each day, while the attendance
generaUy   was  the largest  yet.
Turning from the fruit, we next
sec a magnificent display ol     Bora!
exhibits, consisting of pot piuuts,
single blossoms, bouquets, floral designs, foliage ami ferns. Particularly
fine dahlias iters shown by J, P.
McLennan, Mrs. Haggen    and    Mrs.
Counter, while T. Stoed'H asters
wire beautiful, Tbe exhibit of Mowers was particularly attractive ami
it is grntifying to see tbis branch of
industry     so     far    advanced. J.
Malcy'u showing deserves special
mention .
FINE ARTS, FANCY WORK.
, Exhibits iu tins class were not so
numerous ns in previous years, and
until better arrangements are mado
Ior the display of line nrtB and
fancy  work,  to keep  them   Clean  nnd
free from dust, the entries in   thi	
classes   Will   be   very   limited. The
Collection of fancy work showed some
excellent specimens, n credit to the
city. But ll few exhibited fine nrts

the quantity.
In home cooking, etc., n number of
dainty  cakes, bread, etc.,  was shown

Early nest mouth the village of
Ohamoulz, lying among the foothills
of Mount llluuc, Switzerland, ia expected to witness thu dual act in au
Alpine tragedy which forty years ago
thrilled not only the old world but
the new.
Three tourists uud ci(;bt guides
were overcome hy tlie cold and sull-
ered a slow and agonizing death
near  Llle summit of Mount  liliiiu',  on
September 7, 1S70.
line of the victims wus Mr. John
0. Randall, treasurer ol a savings
bank at Qtilncy, Mass., whose life
ambition wus to climb Mount llluiu'.
lie did it and death  wus the  prico,
Mr. Randall's bo.ly has laid for
forty years within the gnat Dos-
soms glacier, a collin of ice, progressing inch by inch downwards 0
few hundred feet every year. About
him nre tlie bodies of live of the
guides.
! The hoilifs of the two other tourists—Dr. James Bean, an American
and the Kev. George McCorkindale,
u Scottish minister—mul three more
guides, were discovered not many
days after the tragedy.

WAITING ANT) WATCHING
The villagers of Chamonlx nre
waiting and watching. l'Trst an al
penstock tuny be discovered, or an
axe. Then the thinning ice may re
veal tho body, which can be released
by cutting through the glacier surface.
Pathetic, indeed, is the story of
Mr, Randall's visit to the country
where be met his death, In his diary
under dnte May 25, 1870; the day
when he left his home in America,
appears  the following entry.
"Today I begin the realization of
the dream of my whole Lite, After
many misgivings and doubts 1 decided a few days ago to visit Europe
said goodbye, and kissed my dear
wife and babies,"
It was on September G that Mr.
Randall began the ascent of Mount
Blanc from the Grand Mulcts Inn,
with Dr. Bean, Mr. McCorkindale and
. guides. The weather ..us bad
und   the wind frightful.

1 Col. Barnes, who owns, controls
and operates the big organisation,
is this hcusoii featuring Millie Uarnes
who presents the equestrian lion,
Nero, a full grown black muned African lion, and the only one ol his
speclOB known to tbe profession • of
entertainment that has ever been
educated to perform while retaining
his seat on tlie back of a running
horse. Thin act is all tho more
remarkable when it is remembered
that the lion ami the horse, in their
native state, are known to he deadly enemies. Martha Florlne, a diminutive bit ot Dresden doll-like fom-
ininity, docs almost unbelieveable
things with a mixed group of genuine Imported spotted Persian leopards and South American panthers,
ono of the least dependable animals
known to the annals of animal mastery.
Kuwin Kelly enters the enclosure
with seven black maiieil African lions
and liming tlie course of his exhibition of animal mastery feeds them
raw ment from bis naked hands and
lips.
Tun  Buckley  presents a group      ol
acrobatic uud comedy  S   iamese  ele-
I'liiniis,  mobsterous creatures     that
run a laundry and conduct a   bather
shop, as well as perform     uuuier.": i
other stunts almost past ci,m,)icm-union.        Captain  Stonewall,  formerly
of tbe good ship Viola,  introduces a
remarkable school of educated      sea
lions.      Big  Dick,   the  bright       particular      star  ol  the  group  actually
lays  ball  with     his     captor      and
trainer,  juggles objects with all tbe
dextority ol a human performer and
concludes his remarkable performance
y balancing a ball on the tip ol hia
aristocratic nose while  retaining his
seat on tlie hack of a running horse.
.Master tlcorge Settler delights      the
children  with his equine and canine
paradox,  and, in fact, no less    tl'.nn
twenty one sensational wild    animal
acts are presented  during the course
of thc performance, which lasts     approximately     two hours    and tittecn

future, fur the BUCCOSS ui the fair
means the succoss ol uur city, Tho
grounds are idoallj situated and the
surrounding view superb. Fortunate
ly this year King's weather was given us nml nothing untoward marred
ibe proceedings on both days.
During the afternoon ol Wednesday
the ball game between ihe Corley

linal nf the League series, proved a
great attraction, koon interest being
evidenced in thc game. Tho Corloy-
ites proved themselves the better
players and finally won tho championship with a score of lii-7.
AMUSEMENTS.
Resides the many sale show atliae
tiiins mi the fair grounds, all of
which weie bidding for patronage,
tbc principal amusement during the
evening was the very oxceliont ser
ies of biograph pictures at the K.li-

the whole time. Thc pictures were
well init, on and consisted ol many

THE HORSE RACINO.
Rovolstoke has always ranked
nnuiiiK the first ui li. I', cities in the
excellence of tho horse races whioh
are such a treat feature of the Fall
Fairs. The half uule track is uiie
of the best in tbo west ami horsemen generally declare that the Kevel-
Btoke race meet is ns well managed
as any in the Dominion. The feature this year was thc absence of
lum'. delays between laces. which
often characterize horse races. A.J.
McDonell as starter did his work
well and was assisted by a . competent stall. Tho trotting was somo
