One of the most interesting features
ol the exhibition just closed nt Brandon was the display ol splendid products ol British Columbia soil. They
were fresh and in great and tempting
variety — applea, peaches, apricots,
cherries, currants, tomatoes, un
plums. Behind these were beautiful
(museum) specimens ol all kinds ol
Iruit—200 jars ol them with fluid preservative, sn that the natural colour
and beauty ol the Iruit is unimpaired,

trees. This line nml altogether impressive exhibit was ill charge ol R.
M. Palmer, cbiel ol tbe bureau ol provincial information assisted by Mr.
Brandritli, to both of whom the authorities and the public owe n debt ol

GRAND ARMY OF REPUBLIC.
Veterans of 1861 Pass Through
the City.
Those who were at the depot yesterday morning caught a glimpse of 1861
when the veterans of those compaigiiB,
so bitterly aged between the northern
and southern states ol America, made
a brief stup here. The Grand Army
of the Republic, one of the oldest aud
most renowned associations in the
United States, arrived here on No. 96
en route tor Minneapolis where the
grand conventiuii is to he shortly
held. Few ol these veterans ol those
wars now answer the roll call, but the
name is being perpetuated by their
sons and daughters and a new race is
springing from the old stock. Still
the battle scarred warriors, who are on
their way enst, have lost none ot their
activity nud are thoroughly enjoying
the trip across Canada. Two special
cars conveyed the party from Seattle
to the border, where they were taken
on by the C. P, R. at Mission Junction.
Mr. Frank M. Davii, their most genial
commander, stated that he has visited
Revelstoke many times in paBt years,
having been connected with mining
industries. On their return journey
the party will in all probability mnke
a lunger visit to thc city.

FAIR AND SQUARE DEAL,
"Do unto others as you would they
should do unto you," might be taken
aa a very appropriate in itto lor tbo
Assessment Commissioners, The honest man asks nothing better tlinn a
good square deal; and the ordinary
tax payer is not different from the
ordinary mnn, aB regards honesty. He
doesn't' hold out objections or cau-e
dilliculties to be placed in the way ul
the assessment department in preventing theni Irom estimating llie
income correctly, but lie vigorously
objects to u one-Bided nnd unfair
deal which is certainly the case when
bis neighbor ignores the legal and
moral obligations to the cily. The
assessment sot provides tor the taxing
oi incomes, and the incomes of some
are not very easily arrived at, and
that is where the unfair deal creeps
in and raises its head. The thin end
ol the wedge has been inserted and
the fissure "ircns. Employees nnd all
those wl„, draw regular salaries uncertain of having their income made
known, as their employers must produce their pay sheets, while an ordinary income such as may be derived
Irom investments, etc., is a decidedly
unknown quantity; and to arrive al
only an approximate idea as to the
eneut ol such income is what the
assessment act antl commissioners
have only provided tur. Thus employees are taxed according to what
they earn to the lull amount, while
those who have outside ino mies. In
all probability, underestimate them,
The assessment commissioners may
say, they did their besl to estimate
the income ,-f s man, bul ii iB certainly very much within the bounds
ol possibility that a cute ma ighl

whu has emigrated  to Canada i ■
plaining ol the lacl that English po
pie are nol received "with open arms
in ibis country, as the Immigration
lecturer had led the writer to believe,
If nur immigration leoturors aro letting the English think that Cumuli-
anB receive every new arrival with n
brass band and a pig ol beer all round
tbey ore misleading their audiences,
Immigrants Irom fcngland aro especially welcome in Canada; but we d i
not keep up a reception committee lo
present them banquets, nor do we take
a paternal interest in them alter they
mix with lho population, The farm
laborer and the doinestie servant get
a good deal ul "open arms" treatment,
because the demand (or both exceeds
the supply. Hut the man who want,
a city berth will have tn "get a mute'

with the home product. It Is true
that we do not think more ol the

From Summit Pass, whoro Ilii
Alpine Cninp is pitched und rising to

Alpine Club Ibis mountain climb wns
called nt tho cnmp"thooHicinl climb."
During the week at camp nearly forty
pci-sous became active member*} by
climbing Ihis mount, Kiva "I these
were from Rovelstoke. Trips were
made every day ill care uf twu ur mure
guides. The first trip was made on
Tuesday, July 10th. In Ibis parly
were Mies E. Hobbs, Supt. Kilpatrick
and Mr. R, Haggen. Mirny remarks
were made uf Miss llnbbs' excellent
climbing. Unfortunately the first dnj
was cold nnd wel, and ns the clouda
and mist closely veiled ihe mountains
the beauty ol the scene Irom the summit wiib hidden Irom view. This
article describes the visit of llie party
mi Wednesday July Uth. Theni,unit
is named after tho vice president of
tho C.P.R.
At 1 o'clock in the mtirmi'g Mr.
Wheeler, the president, walks around
to the different tents disturbing the
climbers nnd calling thorn to mist
and cut Ior they are to go forth and
scale Mount Vice l'res dent. One call
is sullicieut, for all are eager. A good
brcnkfnst of mush, pork, bums and
toast is made nnd all arc nearly ready
But wait, one of our companions hns
lust his boots, nnd ol course he cannot
go without them, lie had put them
beside the camp lire tho nighl below
to dry und in the morning ihey are
gone," Who lias done this niischiel*;
Arc their thieves in our midst, or is
any ono playing a soiious juke? W.
iln not want lu gu without nur lull
party ni wc begin a careful search Inr
boots. Presently tbey are found cure
fully laid in the cumcr uf a tent near
by. Sume one had noticed the boots
by the lire the night before niter all
had gone to bed and thinking they
had been forgotten or that they mighl
get burnt, hnd kindly placed theni in
a place ul sulci). Suon tbo iiiiiii has

here onward the climb is long and
hard but verv interesting. We continue in a northwesterly direction nnd
the inniiiitaiii rises iu a succession ol
summits and peaks, which have to bi

whito cloud, mingling with tho sunn
capped height.—the sky aiid^arth in
"vciii-i'iil't- grandeur.'! Turn n-.,t
eastward. Looking downward over
die linn1; precipice we first come tn
the great Emerald Glaci r which was
mentioned above. Beyond the glacier
and much further below is the beauti
(ul park of tho Ytilw Valley. At the
vi ry bottom of the valley is the winding white slreuk nf the Yoho river,
whose waters can Le sei n coming Irom
hull' a dozen glaciers. Here are to he
lound the famous Takakkaw Fulls, the
Laughing Falls, the Twin Falls, while
a number ol beautiful green lukelets
are seen in (-.rest groves nnd mountain
basins. Beyond the valley farther
eastward rises tlie great back bone
range ol the Hucky Mountains whose
peaks mark the boundary line botween
B. 0. and Alberta. Here such summits as Mt. Thompson nnd Mt. Hector
are plainly visible, and beyond this
range is the clear line ol demarcation
of the Bow river and valley. Turning
now to the south are the peaks over
which wc have come, the snow fields
and glaciers which wc have passed.
Summit Pass where our camp is and
the valley ol Emerald Lake lur below.
Beyond aic the lops ot Mounts Wapta, Field and Burgess. Farther on is
the Kicking Unite valley and river
where the C. P. K. wends its way.
Still farther lo the south and risiiig*"in
thc clouds ure thc great Cathedral
mountains und Mount Stephen, and
fnr beyond in the dim distance are
such heights as Pope's Peak, Mount
Lelmy, Mount Pinnacle, etc. And
now turn to the west. Near ns is
Mount President about 150 feet higher
than where we stand, and separated
from us by a great chasm. Mounts
Marpole and McMullen are not far
away. Beyond these is the valley ol
Upper Wapta river. Farther westward
we look across the peaks of the Vnn
Home range at the other side nf
which the Columbia river Hows southward. Farther still to the west is the
long regular range of the Dogtooth
Mountains over which we look to the
great towering summits ol the mighty
Selkirks. Yonder in all their heightened glory, with the blue sky above
the horizon Ior a background, rise
the great pyramid ol Sir Donald, the
ridge of Bowney, the Castle of McDonald, the Tower of Tupper, the
Spire of Hennid and (lie pinnacles of
the Swiss peaks. These and more
than pen and tongue can describe are
seen Irom the summit ol Vice President in a great panorama,
II is hard to ieave this spot. We
think ot Goldsmith's words:     ,
"Kvt-n now where Alpine's sulitmle aicentl,
1 sit uu, down a pensive It,air to spent!; SB
And. lilnt'eil un lii-li nlmve tlie storms career,
l,„„l;|,|,,w!iward whereahiintlretlrealmiaptiear;
Lakes, forest-i, cities, plains, extending wide.
'I'll,, pump of kinas the shepherds liillnlile pritle."
Strange feelings arise in our hearts.
We are looking upon scenes in nature
that are equal lo anything in the
world. II the heavens declare divine
glory surely the earth ub well, ln the
midst ol these great thingB how small
man seems. Vet this is our heritage,
this is our country, and wc humbly
pray with the past:
"Lord while f„r all mankind we pray
()(every clime ninl cast,
o hear us Ior our native land;
The land we love tlie most."
The lowly valleys teach us tu be
humble, the lolly peaks teach us to be
poble, tlie rugged Hanks teach us of
dangers in the way, the sublime summits teach us ol the transfigured
heights ol the life sublime, Truly
nature speaks a varied language snd
voices a message of: "Thoughts in
..cues, and looks In tbe running
brooks, and God In everything." After
this pensive halt we rise to go. Bill
lirst we sing the Doiology and the
National Anthem with strange exultant feelings best descrilied in poetic
languages

Wo are ull roped again and oil we
go by a glacier route hack to cninp.
First we pass over a snow lield whioh
is simply like walking through deep
snow on the prairie. Sunn we conic
to a good steep hill covered with snow,
and here our guides give us si une rare
lun. At the top ol the hill wc all
squat on the snow in a straight lino
one behind another, with our stall's
and axes resting in the snow to balance. Suddenly the guide shoots
himself down the hillside nnd with the
rope stnrts the whole party behind
him, and with a wild hurrah the long
string goeB sliding down the hill at u
furious rate. For must ol us long
years have gone since as children we
slid down hill on nature's first toboggan, but in one wild moment we arc
nil children ngain, and down we tare
with laughing, yelling, snow Hying,
and arms and legs sprawling, till at
the bottom wetumble—boys and girls,
arms and legs, ropes and garments in
nne delightful tangle, The guide
smiles snd the party cries, "0 guide
give us some ninre."
Leaving these snow fields wc come
down to the glacier regions, lu the
distance we see that we nre approaching a chasm in the lee. Our course is
to a point where the chasm seems to
Iio covered with snow. The guide
leading steps a lew feet to tlie right,
looks into the chasm, then looks at
the snow, and then says tu us, "wc
will go over here today but not tomorrow." He also sayB "step easy."
We could not yet sec what we were
going over, but we obeyed, and after
all were over the guide led us around
to sec what we had crossed, There
we looked into a great yawning chasm
with a frightful aspect. It's sheer
walls stood almost peipeudiciihir
nearly 20 feet apart and desceiuling
from 30 to 60 leet. Over this chasm
whb a snow bridge formed by the snows
of winter. The summer heat gradually
melts this snow until the bridge lulls
inlo thc chasm. It was this snow
bridge thai the guide looked at before
crossing, and his trained eye knew
that the bridge was strong enough to
hold us that day, but il the weather
kept as warm lur another 24 houra it
would not lie mile. Our hearts were in
our minitlis as we looked into tlie
ice gulf and we thought we would not

he reached ciSars- They wenl back behveen lhe

depths of leather chairs, and blew
the grey clouds of smoke towards thc
and a fishy eye.   He greeted Thorpe
with marked geniality.
"My opponent of yesterday!" h«
cried jocularly. "Sit down, Mr.
Thorpe! Although you did me out
of some land I had made every preparation to purchase, I can't but
admire your grit and resourcefulness.
How did you get here ahead of us?" ,
I walked across the upper peninsula, and caught a boat," replied
Thorpe briefly.
"Indeed, indeed!" replied Mr. Mor-
riBon, placing the tips of his fingers
together. "Extraordinary! Well,
Mr. Thorpe, you overreached us nicely; and I suppose we must pay (or
our carelessness. We must have that
pine, even though we pay stumpage
on it. Now what would you consider a fair price for it?"
"It is not for sale," answered
Thorpe.
"We'll waive all that. Of course it
is to your interest to make difflcul-
ties and run the price up as high as
you can. But my time is somewhat
occupied just at present, so I would
be very glad to hear your top price
—we will come to an agreement afterwards."
"You do not understand me, Mr.
Morrison. I told you the pine is nut
for sale, and I mean it."
"But surely— What did you buy
it for, then?" cried Mr. Morrison,
with evidences of a growing excitement.
"We intend to manufacture it."
Mr. Morrison's fishy eyes nearly
popped out of his head. He controlled himself with an effort.
"Mr. Thorpe," said he, "let us
try to be reasonable. Our case
stands this way. We have gone to
a great deal of expense on the Ossa.
winamakee in expectation of undertaking very extensive operations
there. To that end we have cleared
the stream, built three dams, and
have laid the foundations of a harbor and boom. This has been verv
expensive. Now your purchase includes most of what we had meant
to log. You have, roughly speaking, about three hundred millions in
your holding, in addition to which
there are several millions scattering
near it, which would pay nobody but
yourself to get in. Our holdings are
further up stream, and comprise only about the equal of yours."
"Three hundred millions are not
to be sneezed at," replied Thorpe.
"Certainly not," agreed Morrison
suavely, gaining confidence from the
sound of his own voice. "Nat in
this country. But you must remember lhat a man goes inlo the northern peninsula only because he can
get something better there than here.
When the firm of Morrison & Daly
establishes itself now, it must be I«r
the Inst time. We want enough timber to do us for the rest of the tine
we are in business."
"In that case, you will bavs to
hunt up another locality," replied
Thorpe calmly.
Morrison's eyes flashed. But he retained his appearance ol geniality,
and appealed to Wallace Carpenter.
"Then you will retain the advantage ol our dams and improvd
ments," said he.   "Is that lair?"
"No, not on the face of it," admitted Thorpe. "But you did your
work in a navigable stream for private purposes, without the consent
of the Board of Control. Your presence on the river is illegal. You
should have taken out a charter as
an Improvement Company. Then,
as long as you 'tended to business

How to Dr&w the Body
SO MANY boys and girls, like Polly
Evans, are enthusiastic over
drawing that you will all be Interested In the following hints on
drawing the human body, given us by
a very successful artist.  Says he:
Give your first attention to the
movement. There Is a suggestion of
motion even ln the standing pose; no
one stands gracefully In the attitude
of a soldier in the ranks.
The weight of the body is thrown on
one foot, the hip on that side is raised,
the shoulder lowered, the spine curved,
the head bent a little to the opposite
side. But, of course, there are a thousand variations of thc attitude. So
the first thing to do is to draw a perpendicular line In your mind's eye
through the figure you are about to
sketch and note how much the figure
from crown to chin, as your unit of
varies from the perpendicular.
Unless you sketch out the natural
attitude of the figure ut the very* first
you will surely lose it, as it disappears as soon as the figure's muscles
weary and become limp.
Draw very lightly a perpendicular
line down the middle of the paper or
to one side if the figure's arm is extended. Mark the middle of the line

FROM Ik Use the length of the head.
nn
In the average adult man the height
of tlw body, from crown to sole, is
from six and a half to seven and a
half times the length of the head.
From chin to a little below the centre
of breast Is usually a head's length;
from ihe centre ot breast to top of
hips another head's length; from there
to middle of thigh, another; from middle of thigh to knee, another; from
knee to sole of foot, two heads'
length.
The arm Is usually a little more than
three heads' length. From shoulder to
shoulder Is usually two heads' length,
from nip to hip one and a half.
The hand is usually three-quarters uf
a head's leneth; the foot Is usually a
trltle over a head's length.
A horizontal line drawn from pupil to
pupil divides the head into almost exact halves.
Now for the eyes.
Beginners usually make ihe eye In
profile too long. Study these diagrams
to see where you have made your mis-
lakes. In the first diagram you see
the full eye in perspective. The slant
of the lid Is abrupt.
In the second diagram, which gives a
three-quarter view of the eye. also In
perspective, the highest point (centre)
is withdrawn from ihe extreme limit
-marked In tbe profile more toward the
actual centre.
In the last diagram. Bhowlna the full
eye, the highest point Is fn the actual
centre, there being no foreshortening.
Nole the perpendicular lines drawn on
the first two diagrams, which show how
much the eve retreats from view according to the respective turns of the
head.
Don't forget that very few people
are harmoniously proportioned, most
people having snorter legs than they
ought to have. So you will have to
Judge by your eye just what their actual proportions are. And then, of
course, you will always have to look
Oul for the necessity of foreshortening
here .ind there in your sketch.
Ii will help you to know lhat usually
the fork of the legs is a little less than
half the height of ihe body and that the
trunk (to the rhini may lie divided into
four heads.
Usually wh*n a figure is standing at
rest tbe line of balance or equilibrium
raFses thr-'tigh the head nnd neck, but
not through the legs. It falls In front
i' them, about throiiph the insteps.
In a well-built figure ihe chest is well
forward, lie body thrown forward on
the legs and the head htdil a little lack
j.f a balance.

One of the most interesting features
of the exhibition just closed at Brandon was the display ol splendid products ot Britisli Columbia soil. They
were fresh and in great nnd tempting
variety — apples, peaches, apricots,
cherries, currants, tomatoes, an
plums. Behind these were beautiful
(museum) specimens ol all kinds ol
fruit—200 jars of them with Ibiid preservative, so that the natural colour
and beiiuty ot the Iruit is unimpaired,
the whole backed by framed photographs of bearing orchards uud fruit
trees. This line and altogether impressive exhibit was in charge of R.
M. Palmer, chief of the bureau of provincial information assisted by Mr.
Brandritli, to both of whom the authorities aud the public owe a debt of
gratitude. Their courtesy was phenomenal and the Britisli Columbiana

Those who were at the depot yeBter-

when the veterans ol those compaigns,
so bitterly aged between the northern
and southern states ol America, ninde
a brief stop here. The Grand Army
ot the Republic, one ol the oldest and
most renowned associations iu the
United States, arrived here on No. 96
en route for Minneapolis where the
grand convention is to be shortly
held. Few of these veterans of those
wars now answer the roll cull, but the
name is being perpetuated by their
sons and daughters and it new race is
springing from the old stock. Still
the battle scarred warriors, who nre on
their way enst, have lost none ol their
activity and are thoroughly enjoying
tbe trip across Canada. Two special
cars conveyed the party from Seattle
to the border, where tbey were taken
on by the C. P. R. nt Mission Junction.
Mr. Frank M. Davis, their most genial
commander, stated that he has visited
Revelstoke many times in past years,

industries. On their return journey
the party will in all probability mnke

FAIR AND SQUARE DEAL.
"Do unto others as you would they
Bhould do unto you," might be taken
as a very appropriate nutto lor (lie
Assessment Commissioners. The honest man asks nolliing better tlinn ti
good square deal; and the ordinary
tax payer is not different Irom the
ordinary man, as regards honesty. He
doesn't hold out objections or cuu-e
difficulties to be placed in tbe wny ol
the assessment department in pic-
venting theni (ruin estimating the
income correctly, but lie vigorously
objects to a one-sided and unfair
deal which is certainly the case when
his neighbor ignores the legal and
moral obligations to the city. The
assessment ;-ct provides for the taxing
ol incomes, and the incomes of sonic
ure not very easily arrived nt, und
that is where the unfair deal creeps
in and raises its head. The thin end
ol the wedge bus been inserted and
tbe fissure opens. Employees and nil
those who draw regular salaries are
certain ol having their income made
known, us their employers must produce their pay sheets, while un ordinary income such as may be derived
from investments, etc . is a decidedly
unknown quantity; and toarrivoat
only an approximate idea as to the
extent of such income is what tin
assessment act nnd commissioners
have only provided lor. Thus em-
plojees are taxed according to whal
Ttsy^arn to the lull amount, while
those .?ho have outside incomes, in
all probauility, underestimate them.
The a--essiiient commissioners may
say, they did their ln-st to estimate
the income ol a man, but ii i- certainly very iniicb within tlie bound:
of possibility that a cute niun might
not du his best in helping thecom
ii,!-■-.-.i..-:-. provided that he is n it n
mere salary getter. In absenci ol
documentary proof to the contrary
the commissioners must needs be i in
tent with that man's word, ivhii li
would bo given with the certainty
that no one would disc..ver it, I'm -
licity will net a- .1 very effectual incentive to drive the truth abu n lu

During the week at iviinp nearly lorly
persons became active members by
climbing this mount, l-'ivt- ,,i Ihese
wore from Ilevelstoke, Trips wore
ninde every dny in cure of two or mure
guides. The first trip was niailo nn
Tuesday, July lmh. In ihis party
were Miss E. Hobbs, Supt. Kilpatrick
irks
and Mr. 11. Haggen. Many
were nindt-nl Miss Hobbs' excellent
climbing, Unfortunately the lirst dnj
wus cold nnd wel, and ns the clouds
and mist closely veiled the mountains
the bounty of the scene from tin sum
luit was hidden from view. This
nitiole describes the visit of lhe party
,,ii Wednesday July I lib. The mount
is named after tho vice president ol
the 0. P. R.
At 1 o'clock in the mornii-g Mr.
Wheeler, the president, walks around
to the different tents disturbing the
climbers and culling them to arise
mid cat lor tbey are to go forth nnd
scale Mount Vice l'rcs tlcnl. Onccall
is sufficient, lor all are eager. A good
breakfast of mush, pork, bc-ans nnd
tonst is made and nil aro nearly ready.
But wait, one of our companions hns
lost his bunts, mid of course lit- can nol
go without tin-in. lie had put them
beside tho camp lire tho night before
to dry and in the morning Ihoy are
gone. Win.-bus dune this mischief?
Are their thieves in our midst, or is
uny one playing a serious joke? Wido not wnnl lo gn without our lull
party so we begin a careful search lur
boots. Presently they nre found care-
fully laid in the corner of n tout near
by. Some one had noticed the boots
by the lire Ibe night belore alter nil
bad gone to bed and thinking tbey
bud been forgotten or that thoy mighl
get burnt, had kindly placed Hum in
a place oi safety. Soon tbo man bus
his boots on and all are now ready

eastward, [jookiug downward over
lho iliiu'i nrecipice we llrsl come to
Ibe great Emerald lilaei r which was
mentioned nhove. Beyond the glacier
uml much farther below is tlie beaiiti
ful park id the Yoho Valley. At the
very buttotn of the valley is ihe winding while 8ire„k ul the Yoho river,
whose waters cun i-e se, n coining lr,,in
bull' a dozen glaciers. Here nre to be
f,,uml tlie famous Tn I. a kk aw Falls, the
l.itiigliitig Kails, ibe Twin Fulls, while
a number ol beautiful green  lakelets
uie seen in f -rest gruves nnd mountain
basins. Beyond the valley further
eastward rises the great back bone
range ol the Rocky Mountains whose
peaks mark the boundary line between
B. 0. and Alberta. Here such sum-
mils as Ml. Thompson nnd Ml, Hector
are plainly visible, and beyond this
range is the clear line ol demarcation
,,(the Mow river and valley. Turning
now to the soutli are the peaks over
which we have conic, the snow fields
nml glaciers which we hnve passed,
Summit Pass where our camp is and
the valley ol Emerald bake lur below.
Beyond me the tops of Mounts Wapta, Field ami Burgess, Further on is
the Kicking Hone valley and river
where the O. P,   K,   wends  its  wny,
still farther io the south and rlslnrtn
the clouds nre the great Cathedral
mountains snd Mount Stephen, und
Inr beyond in the dim distunce are
such heights as Pope's Peak, Mount
Lelruy, Mount Pinnacle, etc. And
now turn tn tbo west. Near us is
Mount President about 150 feet higher
tlinn where we stand, nnd separated
from us by a grint chasm. Mounts
Marpole nnd McMullen are not lur
away. Beyond these is the valley ol
Upper Wapta river. Farther westward
we look across the peaks ot the Vnn
Home range nt (he other side of
which tlie Columbia river Hows southward. Farther still to the west is the
long regular range of the Dogtouth
Mountains uver which we lock to the
great towering summits of the mighty
Selkirks, Yonder in all their heightened glory, with the blue sky nbove
the horizon for n background, rise
the great pyramid of Sir Donald, the
ridge of llowney, the Castle uf Mc-
Dunald, the Tower of Tupper, the
Spire of Hcrinid and the pinnacles ol
the Swiss peaks. These and more
than pen and tongue can describe are
seen Irom the summit ol Vice President in a great pauuramn.
II is hard to ieave this spot. We
think of Goldsmith's words,!
"Kvi-tt now where Alpine's solitude ascend,
I sit uie <li,tin a pensive hour I.. spend; SH
And. placed on high above the atortm career,
l,„„ll|l„wnuat'<lnll,-lealninilreilrea!nisii|l|it..li;

The pomp tit klnga lite Blieplierdi IniniTila pride."
Strange ieelings arise in our hearts.
We are looking upun scenes in nature
that are equal lo anything in the
world. II Ihe heavens declare divine
glory surely the earth ns well, In the
midst nl these great things how small
man seems. Vet this is our heritage,
this is our country, and we humbly
pray with the pnst:
"Lord while Inr oil niankiinl we pray
(K every clime and coast,
O hear in for our native land;
The laud we lovo the moat."
The lowly valleys teach us to be
humble, the lofty peaks tench ub to be
uoble, tlie rugged Hanks teach us of
dangers in the way, the sublime summits tench us of the transfigured
heights ul the life sublime. Truly
untitle spenks n varied language and
voices a message of: "Thoughts iu
stcues, nud looks in the running
brooks, and God in everything." After
tliis pensive bnlt we rise tn go. But
lirst we sing the Doxology and the
National Anthem with strange exultant feelings best described in poetic
language:
"When Um* creation's cliormi around combine
Amid lie- ilnro should thankless i,ri,le repine I
Forever your tributary .tare* combine
Creation,, heir, the world the world is mine."
We nre nil ruped again and off we
go by a glacier route bnck lo cnnip.
First we pnss over u snow field which
is simply like walking Ihrough deep
snow on the prairie. Soon we conic
to a good steep bill covered with snow,
and here our guides give us sume rare
(un. At the top ol the hill we all
squat on the snow in u straight line
une behind another, with our stall's
and uses resting in the snow to Iml-
ii nee. Sudden iy the guide shoots
himself down the hillside nud with the
rope sturts the whole party behind
him, and with a wild hurrah the long
string goes sliding down the hill at a
furious rate. For most of us lung
years have gone since as children we
slid duwn hill on nature's first toboggan, but in one wild moment we nre
nil children again, and down we tare
with laughing, yelling, bhow Hying,
and arms and legs sprawling, till nt
the bottom we tumble—boys nnd girls,
arms nnd legs, ropes and garments in
one delightful tangle. The guide
smiles and the party cries, "0 guide
give us some more."
Leaving these snow fields wc come
down to the glacier regions.   In the
distance we see that we are approaching a chasm in the ice. Our course is
to a point where the cliiism seems to
bo covered with snow. The guide
leading steps a few feet to the right,
looks into tlie chasm, then looks at
the snow, nnd then snys tu us, "we
will go over here today but not tomorrow." He also Bays "step easy."
We could not yet sec what we were
going over, but we obeyed, nnd after
all were over the guide led us around
to see what we had crossed. There
we looked into a great yawning chasm
with a ftightlul aspect. It's sheer
walls stood almost peipendiculur
nearly 20 feet apart and descending
from 30 to 50 (eet. Over this chasm
wns a snow bridge formed by the snows
of winter. The summer heat gradually
melts this snow until the bridge lulls
into the chasm. It was this biiow
bridge thnl Ilic guide looked at belore
crossing, nnd his trained eye knew
that the bridge was strong enough to
hold us ihnt duy, but. if the weather
kept as warm Ior another 24 hours it
would not be sale. Our hearts were in
our mouths as we looked into tho
ice gull and we thought we wuuld nut

Next day the articles of partner-
ship were drawn; and Carpenter gale
his note for the necessary expenses.
Then in answer to a pencilled card
which Mr. Morrison had evidently
lelt at Thorpe's hotel in person, both
young men called at the lumberman's
place of business. They were ushered
immediately into the private office.
Mr. Morrison was a smart little
man with an ingratiating manner
and a fishy eye. He greeted Thorpe
with marked geniality.
"My opponent ol yesterday!" hi
cried jocularly, "Sit down, Mr.
Thorpe! Although you did me out
ol some land I had made every preparation to purchase. I can't but
admire your grit and resourcefulness.
How did you get here ahead of us?"
"I walked across the upper peninsula, nnd caught a boat," replied
Thorpe briefly.
"Indeed, indeed!" replied Mr. Morrison, placing the tips of his fingers
together. "Extraordinary! Well,
Mr. Thorpe, you overreached us nicely; and I suppose we must pay (or

pine, even though we pay stumpage
on it. Now what would you consider a fair price for it?"
"It is not for sale," answered
Thorpe.

Morrison. I told you the pine is nut ■

"But surely— What did you buy i
it for, then?" cried Mr. Morrison,
with evidences of a growing excitement.
"We intend to manufacture it."
Mr. Morrison's fishy eyes nearly
popped out of his head. He controlled himself with an effort.
"Mr. Thorpe," said he, "let us
try to be reasonable. Our case
stands this way. We have gone to
a great deal of expense on the Ossa-
winamakee in expectation of undertaking very extensive operations
there. To that end we have cleared
the stream, built three dams, and
have laid the foundations of a harbor and boom. This has been verv
expensive. Now your purchase includes most ot what we had meant
to log. You have, roughly speaking, about three hundred millions in
your holding, in addition to which
there are several millions scattering
near it, which would pay nobody but
yourself to get in. Our holdings are
further up stream, and comprise only about the equal of yours."
"Three hundred millions are not
to be sneezed at," replied Thorpe.
"Certainly not," agreed Morrison
suavely, gaining confidence from the
sound of his own voice. "Not in
this country. But you must remember that a man goes inlo the north-

establishes itself now, it must be lor

"In that case, you will have to
hunt up another locality," replied
Thorpe calmly.
Morrison's eyes flashed. But he retained bis appearance of geniality,
and appealed to Wallace Carpenter
"Then you will retain the advantage of our dams and improve
ments," said he.    "Is that fair?"
"No, not on the face of it," admitted Thorpe. "But you did your
work in a navigable stream for private purposes, without lhe consent

both lor reference and aa training In

many ut the beat instructors nuw have
llieir pupils keep a acrap buuk us part

Delightful biographies of musicians,
histories of dillerenl musical epochs
and schools, studies of the operas, oratorios symphonies and church music,
stones ol the lunisungs ol many
lands, musical encyclopedias, dictionaries and magazines now abound. A
pretty bound volume uf uio: uf these
will not merely please jour liltlu
daughter or son, but will serve as a
starter lor a musical library.
Every serious student of music feels
the need uf such a collection, as, fur
some strange and unknown reason,
many public libraries otherwise well
equipped are lamentably lacking In
musical reference books.
Or a volume of well-chosen selections
to be played, graded to give the lillle
student un Incentive to hurd practice,
makes a nice gift-
A music roll, also, Is acceptable. Be
very careful In chousing this latter, for
Just now there is a marked luslilun in
music bags, und woe betide the mother

ure curried over tlie lingers, ui- double

relleule. Tile prime essential Is, however, thai when open it lies perfectly
ilal, so that the music Is nut creased
or bent.
if une can afford 11, a very nice gift
is a metronome. Time is a weak point
to many children, and this little Instrument dues much io teach it steady beat.
Much in"''' expensive, but a great

Try this musical gift-making at this

of course, better than tapestries or

Uy tur the inoni lusting uud serviceable of all these Oriental portieres are
those made of glass beads. They come
in exquisite colorings, which, In the si-".
or under artificial light, glisten cliaim-
Ingly. They are made with cumbliiuiluna
of the several inch-long bugle beads and
very tiny ncckluee beads.
One lovely portiere was shuiik In such
a way as to have a background of dull,
pinkish red. with a conventionalized put-
tern In white und green thrown In bold
relief. Another was an artistic blending
of iiiniuoiM" blue,   amber,   white   and
green.
He-sides their beauty these glass portion's have tho decided udvuntage of
washing well, At lhe close of a season
tbey may be taken down, scrubbed In
wnler nnd washing soda, and come oul
the next yoar as glistening as ev<-r.
For those who do not care for the
strung portiere there are thin silk curtains tn green, rose or gold, banded ln
heavy yellow cords, or ihose of red and
green heavy mercerized cotton, with a
deep border In Arabesque figures done
In red, orange nnd blnck. Thn«e are
chiefly suitable for doors lending from

heavy-looking for summer.
Extremely popular for portieres tma
season are those In a large meshed rul
nnd green lish net. with convent unallzeu
border und scalloped edge. Ihey are
stylish ami striking, rather than beautiful. ,
Most satisfactory and very lovely rar
slightly screening doors in summer are
the curtains of crepe madras, so called
because thev have a crepy weave und
are heavier and more durable than the
ordinary madras.
The backgrounds ot soft oralis or
lielge make an excellent undertone
for the suit Persian coloring of ihe designs. Many of them are dlroct copies
of rare old Paisley nliawls.
probably nothing Is quite so lasting as
these curtains. Their colors are perfectly fust, and they have boon known to
come out of Uie washtub as bright and
iresh us whea new, after six or seven
years' wear In n sunny window.
Tin- silk-sirlped snowtlnke portieres in

WELL-BRED BREAD EATING
IN THIDOKY we jay externals should
not count—they are but the husks
that hide tbe real man within; in
fact, nothing In the world counts
so much.
uur nearest and dearest may know
our real worth. Tbe stranger knows
I.ul What lie bees, and Judges accordingly.
In noihitig Is this more true than in
tabic manners. A man muy be a
statesman, a scholar, a poet In heart
and life, but let him cat with his
knife, suck libs soup or take his coffee,
from tho saucer and all his brains will
uut save als breeding from unkind
criticism,
Fortunately, these tlagrant breaches
of table etiquette are not so common
as formerly. There Is one thing,
though. In Which even dainty and
well-bred people—mon ami women
alike—are surprisingly careless. Tills
Is tiie way they eat bread,
How frequent It Is to see a large
and generous slice of bread—all across
the loaf, maybe—bold rampantly uioft
on the left palm, while the right ham I
vigorously Bprcals on butter or jam
nd Hinr'niii.
Then I: at buttered sHce, unbroken,
makes Its way t> thu mouth to be
robbed of a bite, only limited by tlio
unwillingness of the eater to choke
himself.
One charming and cultured man,
whose scintillating wit makes him a
welcome after-dinner guest iu many a
fashionable home, invariably tioids his
bread in a uuuply huUoweu palm—ha
if lie feared the slice would gut away
—while with thu oilier ho spreads on
butter with alt thu energy and utmost
the motion with which he would
grease a rusty cog wheel or hut box.
Nine out of ten people omil to break
Iheir bread into bils just lutge enough,
to be disposed of ul one mouthful,
Ninety-nine cut of a hundred of tboso
who remember that breaking bread,
out biting it, is good maiiueis, spread
their tiny bits In tbe uir Insteud of
oil tile side of their plutu,
Trliles, you say?
Yes, but trifles that count Thoy
make Just the difference between good
breeding and no breeding.
Mothers and governesses cannot b«
loo punctilious In their insistence
upon good table manners in the child.
They may be acquired inter in life; but
too often little niceties, such us th*»
proper «"d improper way to eft! bread,
are never wholly learned If left until
that later time. Working Dresses
SINCE tluii blessed somebody conceived tlio
brilliant idea ul' making house and morning
dresses in oue piece, yd so that they fasten
into whal luuks like a trig, simple shirtwaist suit,
the woman whu tines her uwu wnrk lius been a
much mare tidy individual than hor predecessor, whu hml mulling- between shirtwaist suits,
which lake plenty of time und patience to put un
wiih nny degreo of neatness, uml thoso must pu-
thciir of nil garments, Mother Hubbard wrappers.
Tin- quaintest working dress Mike tin* one pictured) may be made of percale, a deep pocket
stitched on the front like a turned uji apron und
kepi from dragging mil by big buttons bcI al intervals ai-,,uiul it. The buttoning-book itlt-ti is repented on tlie sleeves, the deep cuff held up by the
buttons which st-t-in tn trim them.
Collars lire mostly conspicuous by their absence, it vou except tho low, broad, rolling kind,
which, wiih ii bow nt tho throat, nre becoming to
almost every type, of woiiian, unlike the more trying- collarless styles.
Surplice waists nre easily made, uud nre capable of many adaptations. Hut perhaps the prct-
tit-.-i of all the many house dresses are those
adapted for princess styles, one-piece, but shirred
about the wnisl like a deep girdle, and made of
flowered dimitios nnd lawns and the real of thu
sheer, pretty siulfs, which set mile for just such
purposes.
They hook up the back, are slipped into as
easily—more easily, perhaps—as any other dress,
Some of them are cut just u little low, the
round neck shirred to match the waist, and tho
elbow sleeves are shirred, too.
Belts, Girdles and Sashes
WITH the era of summer gowns the question of waist adornment becomes vital.
What is thc proper bell or sash or girdle tu weur uu every occasion! How
ure (hey made, if made I Dues ribbon ur leather or
silk leiidt
There are, roughly speaking, three classes of
belts: those for morning ur shirtwaist gowns;
those for suits—cloth, silk ur voile; and those for
the dainty lingerie dresses of afternoon und evening wear, Fur the shirtwaist suit either linen or
leather belts, straight ur shaped, strictly tailored
or elaborately embroidered, are used.
Never hnve the linen bells been sn fascinating,
The ci'iishable unes of lust season on which embroidered effects were sn often lust have given
place In shaped unes. These have a decided slope,
guined less by having them high in the back is

fronts. Almost invariably they are lined or hn\
Intilile folds of the linen; sometimes they are even
boned.
The almost universal buckle fnr lhe linen belt
is  of  mother-iif-pciirl.  though   occasionallv  two
brass clasps on the harness order are substituted.
Less eyelet work and more and more satin
IF YOU are not one of the hopeless conservatives who will use none but a plain
white handkerchief, there are many fas-
Cmttiug novelties for spring which show a
touch of color.
These are far different from the some-
-wliat heavy looking borders ill solid colors
''•usually seen. The tint is applied iu sueh a
way as to be attractively sheer and filmy.
Sometimes it is a touch uf delicate blue or
jiink ur green running in a scattered design
over thc surface uf the handkerchief, ur it
may be just a hint uf color in the corners to
act as u background for a hand-embroidered
pattern.
Again, the body of the handkerchief
in color, with the border woven through it iu
while. Thnt does not sound dainty ur even
pleasing, but it. Is. Sometimes (Jtilor is used
both in the border end in n figure in the
handkerchief itself. Dots the size of a penny
in the fninlesl lime of green are particularly
stylish.
From 1'uris comes news of dainty little
squares of cobwebby linen bordered wiih black
Valenciennes lace as u novolty for thoso in
mourning. This in spile nf fashion's ultimatum ii gains I the use of luce with mourning.

Trim Suits for Business Women
stitch is seen. The design is usually conventionu
ized, frequently a llorul spray ut the back narrow
ing tu the sides.
A particularly effective belt, most stylish in its
simplicity, is a rather broad bund of linen, ubuut
three inches wide, stitched un either side and em-
broidi-red with dots abuut the size of a lend pencil
at intervals of an inch ur twu. Through the centre
midway between every ulher dut is a larger une
the size uf a ten-cent piece.
This same idea may be curried out in eyelet
work, with the large central eyelet as the centre uf
a square of four smaller outside unes instead of iu
lines with alternate ohm.
Extremely tailor made are the perfectly plain
belts of stitched linen, which arc wonderfully convenient, because they button on the under clasp
of the buckle instead of being sewed.
The shaped girdles of linen usually have built
edges buttonholed in scallops, The designs nf
many uf the newer unes are detached—as scattered
fleur-de-lis in sutin stitch or small bowknots. Ono
good-looking one hail a deep conventional arrangement of circles at the back worked in snlin stitch
and seeding, the outer edges being liutliinhiiled and
cut uut.
Lingerie bells uf insertion are much in favor
for morning wear, also the broad belts of loosely
woven basket weave braid, which washes splendidly.
These belts are wuru generally with the mother-of-
pearl buckle, occasionally with one uf brass or silver.
