Deaf Telegraph Operator
As an instance of the ability of ko ■ e
men connected with railroad service
the following will he interesting:
" I'eter A. Foley, the " lightnin
taker " ol Portland, is the most wonderful telegraph operator in the world.
Foley is totally deaf, an ullliction
which ordinarily would bo supposed to
make telegraphy an ut'er impossibility to bim, but since be became
deaf eight years ago, Foley Iuih developed what may bo called a sixth
sense and by touch and sight he can
detect tbe finest movements of the
instrument and correctly interpret
them. His nervous system is a part
aod parcel of telegraphy and by means
of the sense of touch in bis linger tips
he takes messages transmitted Irom
the ends of the continent. He can
read a message by watching the
sounder. With his lelt forefinger
placed lightly on the sounder, he can
by his wonderful sense of touch take
a n essage as accurately at any man
n the offloe."

The Tine Fissure and Noble Five are

that the retailers association has

doubt that every merchant and

not countenance subscribing to 1 hit-
that and Ihe nlhor thing. Allho'

Now that tin- preliminaries ul
the Revelstoke Fall Fair have been
entered upon, and a fair proportion of the people interested, do
time must he lost in getting down
to solid hard work. This is a matter which affects the whole community and an undertaking which
should be equally borne on all
shoulders. The benefit that Revelstoke will derive from such a
scheme cannot be overestimated
and -ueh being the case,every individual citizen aa well as those in
outlying districts, should give all
possible assistance. An annual
fair here will promote business, encourage civic sentiment, stimulate
industry, raise the standard of
agricultural and manufacturing
production, provide entertainment,
advertise the distriet, its advantages and possibilities, and is also
an educative ayi-ncy. Energy and
skill on the part of the directors in
the management of this great un-
ueriaking. especially at such short
notice this year, mu.it be abundantly evidenced. Ths- citizens must !>••

who bave been bidden somewhat nf
recent years in tbe Turf Club,
which as a matter ol fact i.- the
same thing, and it is their duty to
help out as others have done so far.
The city possesi-es a magnificent
park on the Columbia Ri er, which
tan be tamed Into agricultural
grounds. Concentration alone of
events anil attractions of the fair
will lead to success, und while we
are unfortunately unable to have
concentration this year, still, harmony and smooth niiininu under
the circumstances will do much to
secure the looked for results. Labor Day and its accompanying
amusements, the race meet and
other forms of celebration must In
their aggregate, make up the attractions- of the Fair, consequently
there should be one subscription

In the introduction of the civic
improvement by-laws, the council
lias shown n wise and at the same
lime progressive policy, in that
they are making the lirst attempts
on a permanent basis, at beautifying the city. There can be no
question but that cement sidewalks
will amply repay the initial outlay
bulb mi the part of the city itself
and also tbe residents whose property will directly benelit and who
will pay their Bhare by frontage
tax. Cement sidewalks well constructed nnil laid will pay for themselves in a very short time and arc
what Revelstoke really wants. The
greatest cart' will have to be taken
that the pavement is pul down
according to specification. Those
who do the work will have to be
thoroughly acquainted with lhe
nature of it. Conscientious supervision must Lo demanded, which

A   Joint   Committee   Discuss
A meeting of the Labor Day celebration committee was he'd last night
to discuss the general arrangements.
Representatives of the Agricultural
Association iu the personB of Mayor
Lindmark and W. A. Foote met the
labor committee to try and arrange
co operation in the handling of the
events and at I met ions of Labor Day
and the following days of tbe September Fair. It waB pointed out that the
Agricultural Association did not wish
to conllict with Labor Day, but rather
by anialganin tit in of interests to help
each other out both financially and in
way of a geneial plan of attraction for
that week. It was thown that the
Fair would draw a large outside crowd
and be a great advertisement to Revelstoke, and also the merchants and
business men would contribute more
liberally to a scheme of that sort than
if various subscription lists were taken
round as in previous years. After
much discussion il, was agreed thut in
order to save time a representative
committee of the Labor Day celebration and Agrictjlnir.il Association
should meet on Saturday evening and
endeavor lo evo'vo some plan of
cooperation for the benefit of all
