FATMEN'S BASEBALL MATCH
That the fai men of Rovelstoke are
slill far from having graduated into
tho never wasser class, was amply
demonstrated by their performances in
the great Fat versus Lean baseball
match, staged in lho recreation park
tn Labor Day afternoon.
Of course the fatties di,I not actually
win, bul what with squaring the umpire and interfering in the most careless manner with their opponents, the
poor little leaners, they managed t,, al
most make a draw out of the battle,
by pii ine-; up a score of seven runs against the thin men's eight.
THE LINE UP,
Among well-known and easily reOog
nized forms whieh disported themselves
Like young elephants around the dia -
mond, wero Messrs.  MeCarter,  Barber
The run was from the starting point   JohnJon| McDonald, Diokaon, Stewart
opposite the White Man's Lunch, to the
crossing line of First street, a trifle
over 1(>A yards, along an entire length
of one block. No 1 won tho toss and
tonk the inside route. Mr. Barlier pois
«l himself then crack went his piBtol,
and both teams leaped boiu the mark,
the lower town brigade No. 1 having
slightly tbe advantage of the start.       .
Owing to their having a longer length of rope thoy appeared to hold tho
advantage, but as the teams raced
near the finishing line it was clear that
No. *J were well ahead, and theytinish-
ed fully eight feet to tho good. Vic • j
tory fur Upper town, time 13 seconds, '
a very creditable performance.
WET RACE.
After both teams ha'l rested, the Wet
test i (ce was pulled ofl. This is the
competition ba whi'h the greatrlvnlry
exist- etween the two brigades, mv,,,

the course on lhe opposite side of the
Mree-t. Fur the second time that morn
ing Guy started something with his

ofl on their matrh againsi tiui'. The
hose spun out smoothly anl quickly,

time 'hev kept the pace up, and In 'in

tory for Lower town. After the judges had satisfied theniselv.es that every
tiling was ol<. and confirmed the time
keepers decisions, both teams proceeded to oelebrate their victories by 'piiifl-
ing lusty drinks of champagne from
ihe big silver cups whieh are the prizes of success, One cup, that for the

whilst the shadows were represented
by Messrs, Procunier, Palmer, Scott,
Wallace, Hume, Bed, Abrahamson, G.
Woodland, Hamilton and other duly
qualified ghosts of a once uoble- manhood.
After thc rival pitohers Messrs. Ham
ilton and Dickson, had bowed th.-ii
graoeful compliments to the ladles and ■
public generally, the players commenced lo sort themselves out accorliiiL' to
weights, and  the game was on.
The fats completely failed to disting
uish themselves in their tirst innings,
and a protest was entered on their behalf that the game was called too soon
after luneh-
Bul the Thins were oul for blood and
succeeded in getting two inns for their
Hi -st innings. The wrath oi the fat
. i e at this insult was terrible to behold, and whilsi Guy succeeded ir. ea-t
ing hi- shadow before to such Mn extent that the catcher could not see th";
balls coming, they gol three of their
most substantial followers safe- und at

In the third, the Thin men managed
to get ahead, and at ihis stage tbe big

once more supreme in the fourth. In

can he answered in
is aboul seven years ago since we
tackled farming, with some relatives
of ours down in old Ontario, nnd tho
so many eventful months have meantime rolled nwny, the recollection of
those long. long days, and short,
short nights, brings tears of sadnesB
to our eyes, and revives a distinct tan-
ic of carrots within our throat.
Fatuous professors, nud brass voiced politicians are wont to wonder why
it is that "our boys will not stick to
ihe farm," while gentu like the lnte respected Pierpont Morgan, J. J. Hill,
and others, whose connection with
farming has been confined to creating
stock exchange corners in the products
of the soil, wax eloquent ns they de -
scribe the manifold glories of "' Thc
Simple Life.'' But we never peddle
that kind of guff, cause when we work
el on the farrrrni, we found out for
ourselves why everyone with their
trainfare quits the job. If Pierpont
and J.J. had been really anxious i0
tiiii'ii. lhe same discovery, th-y could
have done so, by hiring out to the tirst
long whisken d hayseeder ihey ran across, after their special trains or aut-
os hnd cleared the purleina of New
York or Chicago.
Tk" lirst aspect of life on n farm,
which the unsophisticated would-be—
"Back to the Lander" bucks up again
Bt, is what are known in American
farm lingo ns "Chores.'' Chores on
all well-regulated farms, are ihe preliminary canter before the commencement ofa days work. About 2a. m.
on a cold  Canada  first  spring morning
ilu- voice of the aforementioned    long
whiskered  farmer, floats blithy  up  the
hay loft   steps,   "Hurrah  boys, its lime
to get   up" and  ihe     budding farmer,
hastily digesting  the     remnent of hia
last nights'  supper, jumps  into a pair
of  two ton  boots, a  pitch  fork  in one
hand nnd lantern in thi- ntfaer, wanders
wearily over    to the     sheds.   By  fitful
ighl   ef lain.-rn and silver moon,   he
works for several hours,  until  thc ap-
pioa b of dawn informs him it is time
t<. commenre to milk.   Now milking i.s
a most elevating  uni  Intellectual past
time.   If it be wint.-r time the animals
persist in  leaning up agninsl   the opei
atoi to keep themselves warm,  or for
the-    same reason will   lovingly     curl
their tails flrst in  the milk  pail,    then

several persons assessed and which have been benefitted by the said works so carried out in part and
which are affected by said readjusted assessment:

special assessment imposed thereunder is to be paid in sixteen (16) annual instalments:

Concrete is the best
building material
ABROAD itetemenl—Yet literally true. The aim ol man from the
beginning hu been to make hit building materiali ai nearly like natural itone ai possible. The great labor required to quarry itone led
him to leek various manufactured substitutes. The only reaion he ever
uied wood wai that it wai easiest to get and most convenient to use.
Wood is no longer easy to get. Like most building material, its coit it increasing at an alarming rate.
The cost of concrete is decreasing.    So, from the standpoint of either ler-
vice or economy, Concrete is the best building material.
Canada's farmen are using more concrete, in proportion to their numbers,
than the farmers of any other country.    Why ?
Because they are being supplied with
Canada  Cement —
a crmrnt of the highest possible quality, which insures the success of their concrete work.
The secret of concrete's popularity in Canada lies in
the (.1,-1 that while we have been advertising the uas
of concrete, we hnve also been producing, by scientific methods, 11 cement so uniformly high io quality
that the concrete mude with it gives the complete
satisfaction our advertisements promised.
Com rete would not have heen in Buch universal uae

all her time in the kitchen striving to accomplish some new dish in baking. But when she
cart have a range like the Gurney-Oxford,
cooking becomes a pleasure end a fascination
because of its consistent assured success.
The heat ofthe whole range is controlled by one lever, called the
Economizer, with remarkable ease and effect.
The oven is entirely surrounded by a perfectly even heat of any
degree required for any kind of baking. Pans of biscuits, light
rolls, or cakes, ail cook evenly with a delicate, golden brown crust
without having to be constantly changed around next the heat
as in oth' r ranges.
This perfect Gurney-Oxford oven encourages a woman to attempt
delicious and unusual recipes of her own invention.     Her reputation for being a "splendid cook" is at once established.
The Gurney-Oxford Economizer regulates the exact degree
of heat which is directed through the oven by a Divided Flue
Strip with perfect evenness in
every corner.   The fire is held
low on a Special Reversible
Grate   which   burns
every coal to a white
ash. There is a lift-up
Broiler Top to expose the full fire, and
a  smooth   polished
surface that requires
no black lead.   The
Warming Closet is
big  enough  and
strong   enough    to
hold a whole dinner
service.
This Gurney-Oxford is the range for women of to-day.

London, Aug. *>7—The Morning Post
today publishes a volumn interview
with Sir Richard McBride, premier of
British Columbia, in the course of
WhiohSit* Richard refers to the question of the navy, railway development
nnd linanc.ee.
.Speaking us lo the attitude of Brit,
is-h Oolumbia toward the Borden naval
policy he said Ihey were all, to a muu,
behind Premier Borden and he was
certain ihat the more the people of
Canada ponder over the question, tha
stronger becomes their realization of
their obligation to uiMlertnke their
share of the empire's naval responsi -
bilily. Tim Borden policy, he thinks,
should and must prevail, in spite of
iis temporary setback as a result of
the   action of lhe senate'.
"Recently,, said Sir Richard, "Vancouver was visited by Iub majesty's
ship New Zealand and then tho whole
country worthily celebrated tho event
which, in the opinion of BUch a patriotic people, was one of imperial
importance, I ihin't that the admiralty   are' io i ommended for     their
good judgment  in  sending  this    mag- J
niticenl  ship to our waters."
Sir     Richard    spoke in  appreciative i
terms of the far-sighted policy  oi  Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy in keeping   pace
with the growing needs of the western j
zones ofthe Dominion's railway traffic
"Everything should     go well,'      he
said, "by the time the Panama Canal ,
is opened,   British Columbia    railway I
development  will have so iar udvanc-l
led thnt lhe Paeific coast province will
be  aide  to  tate  a  l;iiu-e  measure      oil
commercial and trading results     that j
' must follow tlie completion     of     that I
! gigantic undertaking. Then we shall
be able to claim a place in the industrial world second to none. While
the tightness of the money market
has materially affected the development  oi -eome of the to'wns which had
I to a  considerable extent    to     curtail;
them,   there i- no doubt   thai     when
the     monetary    situation      i<  n luxe I
there     will he a   revival ot     activity'

Dear  Sir,—There    is   a  move being
Some people say, "it goes in     one
ear nnd out the other."   That's   easy
started  in this oity,    whieh    1 think they have nothing    else for   lt to go

namely  the transfer of the  City Hotel buy  their  clothes from   Cressman   the
license to the corner of Fir^t street und Tailor.
Orton  avenuo.   There  are  many  good
reasons from diflerent points of view,
why this transfer should not be allowed, aud iu this letter I wis'h to p:ace
the mallei' before the public from a
hotel man's viewpoint.
Aboul eight years ago an act waa
passed by the Provincial houso restrict
ing licenses according to population,
the figures being I believe, three licenses for the first 1O00 population, and
'cue license for every additiona
thousand thereafter.
This was a move in the rieht direction to bring the hotels of theprovince
up to a better standard, although owing to the slow growth of some partic
ular towns which were originally hc.av
ily licensed, certain places are only
now beginning to feel the beneficial ef-
fects of that measure. Under these regulations, allowing Rovelstoko to possess a population today of 1.000, this
would allow of six licensed houBes.
Now. what did such a regulation mean
to the hotel man. It meant just this,
that when he had an hotel in a locality, he could go ahead and build up
bis hotel, knowing that no other lie -
ense would be granted across the street
Now if a precedent like the one now being attempted in the transfer of the
City hotel license is established, which
if allowed involves tbe removal of a
license from the original sile to another site at which theie are already
two licenses in very close proximity,
it must  have a   bad effect  in  depriving
