The tiret dandelion of the season is

out their welcome because they swarm
over and ruin our lawns. Due of the
things difficult to understand is why
some lawns arc almost absolutely free
from this pest, while others close by
are drowned in a sea of dandelion
seed.   Thc  owner  of   the   injured  lawn
works us bard as tbe happy possessor of the lawn free from the weed,
his efforts appear useless. To such
unfortunate victims the national department of agriculture holds out
hope of success.

Game at Kamloops
Was km Contest
Wednesday's game at Kamloops
was a good one with both teams
Bghting all the way, although thc
score ended 8-2 in favor of Kamloops. Revelstoke was dogged by !
hard luck and their hoodoo had evidently not been shaken ofl. They
took only seven regular men with
The score was as follows:

The Y.M.C.A. football eleven would
iike to have a game with the C.P.R.
or R.M.R. teams next Thursday evening.
Kamloops, we bave been waiting for
a  visit from you
And are glad to say we bent you, by,
a score of three to> two;
And  why  don't  you  take your licking
as -my loser ought,
And  don't     chew  the  rag  ahout  it,
and he a true sport. i
This chewing the rag is easy, but it
isn't  playing the game,
Before a  crowd of     baseball fans    It
looks very tame.
esn't show    any sportsmanship,
you  will agree with thc same.        ,
We  ilc  claim here   in   Revelstoke,     we
can  take a  licking too,
Ami  when   we do  get  licked  we don't
Chi ,v   the  rag  With   you;
We can  take a licking just like  men,
that's good enough  for us.
And after the game is over we don't
create a flips.
Pfe hope  to  see you  Kamloops come
down to us again,
And hope there     will be no chewing
the rag from your captain;
We will do our very best to beat you
once again, $
And if this should be tbe case it will
cause you intense pain!

A letter from the school board was

was laid over until the next meeting

The mayor brought to the attention of the council a bill for $580.75

We should have expected rather
more notice in the New York press
than wc have seen ol the fact that
last Sunday was the hundredth anniversary ol the first passage of a ferryboat across the East river under
her own power. It was a Fulton
steamer called the Nassau and was
ime nf the events of the time. There
had been ferry transportation before
by boats propelled by oars or sails,
but the law governing its operation
did not rqulre the ferrymen to serve
the public "during a tempest or when
he Cannot sail." The lessees of the
new enterprise were Robert Fulton
and William Cutting. A Long island
paper nf the period described the little craft us "noble" and later proud
lv noted that she had made forty
trilis on a Sunday and carried at
one time 549 passengers, a wagon
and two chain. It also stated that
she had covered room below stairs
where passengers were secure from
the weather, a luxury thut had not
been enjoved upon her scow predecessors. From this beginning the ferry
system became one of the forces of
development between the two cltieB
and contributed much to the upbuild,
ine of both. Now, with multiplying
bridges and tubes, the ferries have
become an actual embarrassment to
the consolidated municipality. They
arc still an occasional convenience,
hut no I'Higer profitable to operate,
and are becoming almost as much of
nn anachronism as the horse-car Un-
fs.-i-HpringficId  Republican.

the sale of the cropst thereby allowing the grantee to pursue hU or her

that goes with the year. Out of 11
possible honors Fred won ten. To
say that his friends here are proud
of him is to fall far short of the
mark. Fred has brought credit to
himself and his home town by winning honors every year since he entered McGill and consequently we
were prepared to hear similar newB
again, but to find him dux and prizeman of his class in the premier col -
lege of Canada surpasses our most
sanguine expectations.
