points ou the C.P.R. tempted many to

Local anglers armed with rod and creel

lured many picuicers to take advantage
uf its cool, shady glades and magnificent scenery. Eight-mile Falls are a

Williamson's Lake can always attract
a gathering of the younger sections of
the holiday-makers, and bathing was
indulged in.
Tbe Calgary exhibition has taken a
number of residents away for a week
or so, and the city on Wednesday
presented an almost deserted appearance. Tbe patriotic feeling was conspicuous by its absence, not more than
a single flag, and that on a private
resilience, being in evidence. All the
prominent bouses uud buildings where
lliigpules are erected, neglected to
hoist a color and oven the Courthouse
only woke up after dinner and ran its
flag up. One noticeable featu e was
the absence of any disorder or riotous
conduct ou the streets un the part of
those who were "celebrating" not
wisely but too well. There were no
disturbances of any kind and the
police having sized up the situation
hud little or no extra work in that
respect; ibis speaks well both for the
police and also for the city as a whole.

Premier McBride bus consented to
visit   Revelstoke   in   ilu
course of
his itinerary and that he will be
hereon Friday, July 10th, for the
purpose of discussing all matters
relating to local utilities and necessities. Revelstoke lias many claims
mi tbe government, claims which
are generally conceded to be of a
perfectly legitimate nature, tbe adjustment of which, if concluded in
ti satisfactory manner will mean a
great deal to the prosperity and
development of Revelstoke, The
premier, who is accompanied by
the lions. \Y. .1. Bowser, Dr.Young,
and .1. J. Fulton, will have to give
tbe public a patient bearing when
the claims which will be submitted
to bim, will be explained and tbeir
validity proved. We judge that
the public meeting held on Friday
will be of a strictly non-political
nature and one at which all parties
-Liiil sects, no matter what their
political bias may be, will serve all
ends better b\ co-operating fur the
good of the city and for the welfare
nf the whole community. Mailers
of local interest only will bo discussed, and the greatest good thai be accomplished will be inl
setting the facts ami details before
tlie premier in a manner clear unit
Concise, pointing OUl what Kevelstoke as ii community, ami noi u
plan for the council to ascertain
thoroughly tbe estimated cost of
nspliiilt and cement walks, such as
are being widely used in all larger
cities; and on inquiries we learn
that many rural municipalities
are adopting tins plan, finding
tbem so much cheaper in the long
run on account of their durability.
Here where wood rols quickly as
it conies in contact with the ground
wooden sidfiwii'l.s ure constantly
in need nf attention, (if only to
shave off the knots its the planks
wear down) and two nr three years
mil lav in repairs would probably
more than equal the first extra
cost of cement or asphalt. The
council in all publio works tbey
undertake, should use good judgment in tho letting of their tenders
to responsible parlies, and not employ cheap and indifferent labor
which invariably turtis out more
expensive in the end.

However tbeir goalkeeper.hel, ed by the
point, kept the rubber out and at half
time the score stood the same. From

Paddles  Proved Superior to
Oars in Heavy Current
Frequent and at times animated
are the arguments that occasionally
crop up during conversations among
our old timo citizens and pioneers of
early Revelstoke, and in dilating on
their feats of prowe.s both in forest,
river and trail, these hardened and
seasoned veterans ure only too ready
to demonstrate by actual te-t what
they claim. Such an argument occurred on Monday during a conversation at tbe Central Hotel, Alex. McRae claiming that he could,by himself,
with a pair of oars iu a canoe make a
straighlrr course across the Columbia
in the strongest current, than two
men with paddles in a canoe, from a
given point on one side to a given
point on the opposite bunk. E. Mc-
Heiin and R. Uliickmnrc to ik up the
wager aud engineered by F. B. Wells
the race wus arranged.
The contest created no little excitement and in tlie evening about 7
o'clock a large number of old timers
and others wended their way to t he
river hank. The starting post was
iininediittelv below the bii'ii part of
tlie dam where there is a strong rillle
over the lower pait, and the contestants had to make the straightesl
course anruns the current tu a mark on
the opposite bank
The Columbia is about 600 yards
wide at thai point. Judges were appointed and McRae made the lirst
attempt. Getting away with a bad
start lie lost considerable ground, but
made up a little drifting down again
as ho reached the middle of the river
and gaining as he mured the other
side. McHean and lllsckniore then
started, using the same canoe, with a
paddle each, and getting away in good
shape were able to hold their own
against si ream, edging acmes until the
full current swept them down, but not
so far as McRae. Ou nearing the
other hank they picked up again and
slid into slack water. The two men
thus won tho cont st their lowest
point down stint in being two canoe
lengths better than that of Mcllm .
It is quite piubable that other host
and cauoe races will be arranged this

rich therein. Great in the square-
mile size, alluring in ways without
iiumer is tbis Alpine area, where
only two per i ent. Iisb been opened up
by railway or trail, but where the two
per cent, yields such dividends of
health snd happiness as to satisfy the
most exacting of summer day sojourn-
ars. Tbe two per cent, is in itself a
big bit uf world in which one may
renew his b ily strength, reinforce his
mind powers and uplift his spirit us

thrones urotnid him.
Fiank Yeigh, in Ihe Toronto Globe
gives tlie following description :
Yes, our Canadian mountain hind
is a wonder world wherein tlie happy
wanderer may climb colossal peaks
and bis picturesque forest trails, or
drive or ride pony back or tramp

" Bhriekini! its material blasphemy"
he may explore a (ar northern valley
for the first time, for many there ate
to explore, as there are many virgin
peaks waiting to be conquered hy
Or he may, if he will—and he will
be wise to si will—enjoy what the
coastal cities and their environs have
to offer, and it is much in itself; all
this, and vastly more, are the allurements held out tj the wise one who
searches out our playground ol tbe
western hills.
Let me sketch more in detail a few
sample holiday programmes among
tbe mountains or their buttressing
foothills. How does a summer on an
Albertan ranch strike your fancy ?
Say on the banks of the Bow river aa
it sweeps on its winding way from the
frontal line uf peaks towards Calgary
and the plains country. Sleek and
well favored are the cattle dining off
tbe succulent nature grasses of the
land, well-fteeced tbe countless sheep,
lithe of limbthe untctbered broncboes.
If you can make terms with a
broncho, then this kind uf u holiday
uu horseback, with tbe ranching cabin
for headquarters, will be worth while
and worth time nnd cost and letting
some other things go. A great natural park area, with ull creation tu swing
around in, the galloping over the suft
earth paths, the joyous tingle of the
nerves, the free nuw uf the bluod, the
deep breathing uf the lungs, the tonic
ol tlie free, earth and sky life—these
are among the delights that await the
holidayer on an Alb_itun ranch.
Then you are near the mountains
ind their Kunanaskis portal,the Three
Sisters guarding the Canmore Valley
on the south. Grim old Cascade,
scarred by the storms ol all the geological ages, basset the valley, making
narrow but not straight, the way into
the government mountain peaks, that
now comprise a total area of 3,450,720
acres. Beautiful Banff ! One uf the
world's fairest Alpine gardens—a picture of forest and river and cascade,
set in a gigantic frame made by a
wore of lofty pctks. What a drive
that is to Devil's Lake with ils ever-
changing views of I.efruy and Cascade
and Sulphur Mountains. What an
intoxicating early morning tramp that
is along the Spray Valley, in the delusive hope of reselling the Twin Peaks
in au hour or two; what jolly climbs
challenge one on every hand; what
everything that makes it worth while
to live the out-of-door life. No wonder
the corridors of the Bantf hostelries
reveal holiday-hunting folks from all
corners of tho globe. They know a
good thing when they eeek out Banlf.
But Banff is civilization, and good
clothes end society, and the social
life, and even these highly desirable
things may well lie left behind for a
time, and they aro left behind when
one hits the trail.
Who shall adequately sing the song
of the bill trail ? The winding way,
turfcarpeted, tbrougli tho forest aisles;
the breath-catching glimpses of guardian giants, the closer acquaintance
witb glacial rivers and wayward
brooks, tbe greetings of the trail-side
Sowers, the greeting., too, of whist
ling marmots aud lazy porciipines.siid
of all the varied life of the high bills.
Unleee it lie—an I this ie a part ol it
—the tented home beneath  the  talk
ing trees and tbe winking stars, the
camp lire glow and glare, tho bannock, and benns, aid bieu- of tea, and
afterwards the perfumed bid of balsam boughs.
And tbere are not a few opened in
recent years by the wise joint action
uf the 0.P.R. aud the Dominion government. Let me tell of three: • To
Paradise Valley; to Emerald Lake
and the Yolio Valley, to the Cougar
caveB from Glacier, near Revelstoke,
and tbe chance render of these lines
will be a wise man if he makes note of
these lines will be a wise man if he
makes note of this trio of trails for
The twelve-mile trail from Luggnn
leads to the enchanting valleys of
Paradise and the Ten Peaks—the
former encircled by Mount Temple
and Seven Sister peaks; tbe latter
revealing the wonder line of ten
towering summits peering into the
blue depths of Moraine lake. Both
vslrs reveal the sublime in scenery.
Avalanches, reverberato down tho
awful cliffs of Lefroy and Temple, of
Delta-form and Fay; glaciers rest
their wintry weight at tbo bases of
the cordillerean giants, Niagaras i bout
and sing their way from icy caverns,
through Alpine meadows, down hillsides and through the valley beds,
and the Jeep-hearted forests help to
carpet the floor of earth and to green

another wondrous realm of nature.
Narrow and seemingly precarious is
the route at times, sharp the curves

Those who love darkness us well as

Guard the Fires
Forest fncs me caused, in only too
many instances, by ratlipi rs and tourists who leave their fires unguarded or
are in other ways canle-s about their
fires. Many of those holiday makers
in tbe woods would ne the last pei pie
iu the wurld to wilfully destroy timber
in this ivsy, but yet a lack of cure on
tbe part of some bas often had a most
lamentable result.
Occasionally what seem cuscs of apparently wanton carelessness are met
with. A flagrant instance of such
neglect was shown some time ago by
a party of seventeen campers from
Hamilton, Ohio, in the Timuganii
(Ontario) forest reserve, who broke
camp one morning leaving quite a
large lire burning. The campers, in
tlieir special care, however wore stopped al North Bay, and not allowed to
proceed on their journey until they
had paid the expenses of extinguishing the lire as well as those of their
own detention. .Such cases are, fortunately, rare.
Attention to a few points may save
much loss from this cause. No mutch,
cigar end or other burning object
should over be thrown down iu the
foreBt until tot Hy extinguished,
Camp fires should not be loft, even for
a Bhort time, until one ia perfectly
sure they are "dead out" Fires
should not be built in dangerous
places, such as among leaver, near
rotten wood or any place where they
are likely to spread. Avoid building a
lire against a large or a hollow lug, for
in Biich a place it is hard to know
wheu the fire has beeu thoroughly
i xtinguiehed. In windy weather a
hole ahould be dug down tu the mineral Boil and the lire confined iu this.
The Lake St. J-|iu district, in Quebec, was the scene of a serious fire
only a few days iiijo. The lire was
caused, it ia eupp -•<! by fishermen
who neglected lo extinguish their
camp fires.
