Doubtless there will be inquiries aud

about half the vote of the electorate.
Unfortunately for the minis'ers, they

Labor Day Celebration at Slocan.
A long and varied program of sports has beeu arranged to be
held at Slocan City on Monday next (Labor Day). A large sum
of money will be donated for prizes, and visitors are assured of
having a goodjtime.
A notable ieature will be the football match���New Denver vs.
Slocan. The Slocan football team succeeded in defeating the New
Denverites on Empire Day, and the lattei being anxious to turn
the tables on their rivab, a good game should be provided. Handsome silver medals will be presented to the members of the
winning team.
Another interesting event iu the day's program will be the rifle
match between New Denver and Slocan. As the latter team came
here only as recently as last week aud skinned our fellows, this also
should prove an exciting contest.
All the other events should provide good sport and the Slocan
Tug of War team are open to meet all comers.
In the evening a grand ball will be held in the I. O. O. F. hall.
The committee who have the arrangements in hand hope to
see a large number of visitors from New Denver and Silverton,
and have been successful in their efforts to obtain a reduced

to convey passengers for fare-and-a-third the return trip from lake
points to Slocan on September 7th, good to return September 7th

There has been a certain amount of
sense displayed by the authorities in
ordering an extra month to be tagged
on to the cIobb season for willow grouse.
But why specialize willow grouse, aud
why not grouse of all kinds for at least
two years? We Kootenaians have been
patting ourselves on the back anent our
unlimited game resources, but the time
has arrived when we must realize tbat
grouse !b becoming a scarce quantity.
It is impossible in a month to obtain
for birds other than wilow grouse the
immunity that is necessary either for
breeding or maturing purposes, and all
true sportsmen agree that something
must be done to protect the grouse
family from indiscriminate death.
Unless a protracted close season tor the
birds is proclaimed in Kootenay, we
shall as surely lament their extinction
as we do the extermination of the buffalo. Not until too late was it realized
that the monarch of the prairie was
threatened with extinction, and it
should prove a ealutory lesson. No one
will kick if a close season is proclaimed
for all kinds of grouse for two years, but
until such a fiat goes forth, the straggling residue of these birds will be
hunted, and the danger of one of Koot-
enay'e principal assets being climated
will continue to be asserted tb all right
thinking people.���Creston Review.
Speaking of grouse reminds us that
this is a season for discussing light-
winged topics, and perhaps you might
devote a little attenton to a grouse
problem. Why should there be no plural for grouse? Instead of "mouses" we
say ''mice"; instead of "louses" we say
''lice," but no one ever thinks of talking of "grouses" or "grice." It is almost as difficult to get a sure aim on
the English' language as on the birds
Meanwhile tbere are a lot of people
blazing away at everything on wings
for the purpose of filling their hungry
The law relating to advertising tbe
intention of prospective purchases of
land from the Provincial government is
now botli clear and unequivocal. All
parties who are required by statute to*
advertise botli in the B.C. Gazette and
a local newspaper must be guided by
this timely hint, as it is essential that
such applications must appear in a
newspaper printed and circulated in the
district. It has been established that
in the event of tbere being* more than
one newspaper published in the district
that the one nearest the vicinity of the
land applied for must be given precedence. It is therefore desirable that
prospective land purchasers or leasers
should take no chances in legalizing
tlieir applications as a little carelessness
in the placing of the advertising might
render tbe application invalid.
There is an individual in town \yho
evidently requires a lesson lo teach him
to leave things alone which don't belong to -him, and'the "light-fingered"

ing it in tht neck, unless he returns it.

OFTEN bad De Montespan feigned a faint In tlio days when
she wished to disarm the auger of the king. But now
she know what it was to have the
���senses struck out of her liy a word.
.She could not doubt tlio truth of what
she heard. Thorp wus that In hor rival's
face, in her stonily eyo, in hor quiet
voice, which carried absolute conviction with it. She slooil stunned for an
instant, panting, her outstretched hands
fooling at the air, her defiant eyes dulling and glazing. Then with a short
sharp cry, tho wall of one who has
fought hard and yet knows that she
can light no more, her proud head
drooped and sho fell forward senseless.
Mine, do Mninttmon stooped nnd
raised her up In hor strong white
arms. There wero true grief und pity
In her eyes as she looked down nt the
snow-pale face which lay against her
bosom, all lhe bitterness and pride
gone out of it and nothing left save the
tear which sparkled under tbe dark
lashes and the petulant droop of the
lip, like thnt of a child whicli has wept
itself to sloop, Sho laid her on the
ottoman and placed a silken cushion
under ber bead. Then sho gathered
together nnd put back into the open
cupboard all the jewels which were
scattered about the carpet. Having
locked it and placed the key on a table
where its owner's eye would readily
fall upon it, she struck a gong which
summoned tlio page.
"Your mistress is indisposed," said
she. "Go and bring ber maids to her."
And so, having done all that lay with
ber to do, she turned away from the
great silent room where, amid tbe velvet and the gilding, ber beautiful rival
lay like a crushed flower, helpless and
Helpless enough, for wbat eould she
do? And hopeless, too, for how could
fortune aid her? The Instant that hor
tenses bad come back to ber she had
pent away ber waiting women and lay
with clasped hands aud a drawn face
planning out ber own weary future.
She must go, that was certain. Her
spirit was broken nt last. She must
accept defeat, and she must go.
She rose from tho couch feeling that
she had aged ten years in an hour.
There was much to be done nnd little
time lu which to do it. She bad cast
down her jewels when the king had
spoken ns though they would atone for
tlio loss of his love. But now that the
love was gone there was no reason
why the jewels should be lost too. If
she had ceased to be the most powerful, she might still be the richest woman in Franco. There was ber pension, of course. That would be a munificent  one,   for  Louis  wns  nlways
these long yenrs, the jewels, the pearls,
the gold, the vases, the pictures, the
crucifixes, tho watches, the trinkets-
together they represented many millions of livres. With her own hands
she packed away the most precious and
portuble of them, while she arranged
with her brother for the safe keeping
of the others. By evening all wns
ready, aud she had arranged that her
property should bo sent after her to
Petit Bourg, to whicli castle she intended to retire.
It wanted half nn hour of the time
fixed for hor departure when a young
cavalier whose face wus strunge to her
was ushered Into ber room.
lie came with a message from her
"M. de Vivonne regrets, madnme,
that the rumor of your departure has
got abroad among the court."
"What do I care for that, monsieur?"
alio retorted.
"He says, madame, that the courtiers
may assemble at the west gate to see
you go; thnt Muie. de Neullly will be
there, nnd the Duchesse de Chambord
The lndy shrunk with horror at the
thought of such an ordeal. To drive
nwny from the pnlace where she had
been more than queen uuder the scornful eyes and bitter gibes of personal
"Tell my brother, monsieur, that I
should be obliged If he would make

"He bade me say that he had done

"Ah!   At what hour, then?"
"Now.   As soon as possible."
"I  nm   ready.    At  the  west  gnte,

"We are to pick him up nt thc park

scon beside the carriage all would be
"Very good. Then, monsieur, If you
will take my cloak nnd this casket we
mny start at once."
They made tlieir way by a circuitous
route through the loss used corridors
she hurrying on like a guilty creature,
a hood drawn over hor face and hor
heart In a flutter at every stray footfall. But fortune stood her friend.
She met no one and soon found her-
solf nt the eastern postern gate. A
couple of phlegmatic Swiss guardsmen
loaned upon their inuslcols upon cither
sido, nnd tlio lump above shone upon
the carriage which nwnited bet'. The
door was open, and a tall cavalier
Bwathed in a black cl -ink handed her
into It. IIo then took the scat opposite
to hor, slammed the door, and the
calecbe rattled awny down the main
It had not surprised her that this man
should join her inside the coach, for It
was usual to have a guard there, and
ho was doubtless tnking tho place
Which her brother would afterward occupy. That was all natural enough.
But when ten miuutcs passpd by nnd
be hnd neltlipr moved nor spoken she
peered nt him through the gloom with
some curiosity. At last the silence Impressed hpr with a vague uneasiness.
It was time to bring it to an end.
A thrill ran through her nerves. Who
or what could he be, this silent man?
Then suddcnlv  it  struck bo��* that he
coign, oe-numo.
"Perhaps monsieur ls afflicted," she
said. "Ferbnps monsieur ennuot speak.
If that be the cause of your silence,
will you raise your baud, aud I shall
understand."   He sat rigid and silent.
Then a sudden mad fear came upon
her, shut up in the dark wilh this
dreadful, voiceless thing. She screamed
in her terror and strove to pull dowu
the window and open the door. But
a grip of steel closed suddenly round
her wrist nnd forced her back into her
Beat. They were already out on the
country roads far beyond Versailles.
It was darker than before, heavy clouds
had banked over the beavens, and the
rumbliug of thunder was heard low
down on the horizon.
The lady lay back panting upon the
leather cushions of tlie carriage. She
was a brave woman, and yet this sudden, strange horror coming upon her at
the moment when she was weakest had
shaken her to the soul. She crouched
in the corner, staring across with pyes
which were dilated with terror nt the
figure on the other side. If be would
but say something. Any revelation,
any menace, was better than this silence.
"Sir," said she, "there ls some mistake here. I do not know by what
right you prevent me from pulling down
tho window and giving my directions
to the coachman."
He said nothing.
"I repeat, sir, that there Is some mistake. This is the carriage of my brother, M. do Vivonne, and be Is not a maa
who will allow his sister to be treated
A few heavy drops of rain splashed
ngainst one window. The clouds were
lower and denser. Sho had quite lost
sight of that motionless figure, but it
was all the more terrible to her now
that it was unseen. She screamed
wltb sheer terror.
"Sir," she cried, clutching forward
with her hands and grasping his sleeve,
"you frighten me. You terrify me. I
have never harmed you. Why should
you wish to hurt an unfortunate woman? Oh, speak to me, for God's sake,
Still the patter of rain upon the window and no other sound save ber own
sharp breathing.
"Perhaps you do not know who I
am?" she continued, endeavoring to assume ber usual tone of command, and
talking now to nn absolute nnd Impenetrable darkness. "You mny lenrn
when It is too lnte that you have
chosen the wrong person for this pleasantry. I am the Marquise de Montespan, nnd I am not one who forgets a
slight. If you know anything of the
court you must know that ray word
has some weight with the king. If you
would���   0 Jesus!   Have mercy!"
A livid flash of lightning had burst
from the heart of the cloud nnd for an
Instant the whole countryside aud the
interior of the calecbe were as light as
day. The man's face was within a
hand breadth of her own, his mouth
wide open, his eyes mere shining slits,
convulsed with silent merriment Every
detail flashed out clear in'that vivid
light���his red quivering tongue, tho
lighter pink beneath it, the broad white
teeth, the short brown beard cut into
a peak and bristling forward.
But it was not the sudden flash; It
was not the laughing, cruel face, which
"MauriceI" she screamed.    "MauriceI
It 1s you i "
shot an Ice cold shudder through Fran-
coise de Montespan. It was that, of all
men upon earth, this was he whom she
most dreaded and whom she had least
thought to see.
"Maurice!" she screamed. "Maurice!
It Is you?"
"Yes, little wifie, it ia I. We nre restored to each other's arms, yon see.
nfter this Interval."
"Oh, Maurice, how you have frightened me! How could you bo so cruel?
Why would you not speak to mc?"
"Because It was so swept to sit In silence nnd to think that I really bnd
you to myself nfter all these years,
with none to come between. Ah, littl*
v-ifip i ���"ii*-***'-'! 'onged for this hoar."

Vhe Rodents Will Eagerly 'Enter It and

Rats may readily be induced to jump
or drop Into nny receptacle, especially
if It affords them adequate concealment, and they do this without one lingering suspicion of tbelr Inability to
reach tlie only existing outlet when the
time for retreat approaches,
Thus traps on this principle may
readily be designed nnd lire obviously
preferable to our rut traps where the
nuimnls are numerous.
In Burma, where the rats arc a perfect pest, they use a jar trap, which is
thus described by n traveler:
"The common I'cgu jar I used was
nbout one nnd a hnlf or two foot deep
nnd fourteen or fifteen inches broad,
and a hole was punched In the shoulder
just large enough for a rat to enter.
"There was about six or seven iuches
of pnddy (rice In husk) In the jur,
which wns then buried to within about
eight Inches of the top. The mouth of
the jar wns then closed with a board
and a stone.
"A quantity of old timber joists nnd
straw were In the outhouse and no end
of rat holes everywhere nround."
With this contrivance he caught seventy-two nits in one night. The rats
can readily enter, but thpy cannot
climb the smooth sides of the jar to
escape.���London Family Herald.

False Hair.
False hair was flrst regularly worn

kinds for her private use. After her
death a few women adopted the
French fashion of wearing wigs, but It
was not until the ...restoration lhnt
wigs, or, more correctly speaking, perl-
wigs, came to be extensively worn by
the sterner sex. These were introduced In the court of Louis XIV,
where a natural head of hair wns not
considered sufficiently luxuriant for
the artificial tastes of the times. The
term "periwig" is a corruption of the
French perruquo. Wigs were originally adopted not ns n remedy for baldness, but ln the interest of personal
cleanliness. The laws of ancient Egypt
compelled nil males to shave the head
and beard. This explains why turbans
were not worn by the Egyptians, Hi*
bushy artificial hair Mug regarded ns
a sufficient protection against the heat
of the sun. The Romans, on the contrary, wore wigs because they were
naturally bald.

Dr. Williams'Pink Pills Are Bringing Health to Weak, Despondent People.
There is not a nook or corner in
Canada, in the cities, towns, villages

they have brought back to breadwinners, tlieir wives and families,
the .plendid treasure of new health
and new strength. You huve only to
ask your neighbors and they can tell
you of some nerve-sbatttored man,
suffering women, ailing youth, or unhappy a&aemic girl who owe present
health and strength to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Their wonderful success
is duo to the fact that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills go right to the root of the
disease in the blood, and by making
the vital fluid rich and red, strengthen every organ and every nerve,
thus driving out disease and pain.

Details of Necessary Work During
the Growing Period.
As soon as sugar beets are large
tnough to mark the rows cultivation
witb the borse or bund hoe may be
commenced. Cultivation must not be
postponed except for unfit condition of
the soil If the grass and weeds appear
above the ground at the same time
with tbe beets.
When large fields are cultivated the
horse hoe may be used. This plow
frees thp spaces betwpen the rows of
beets from Weeds, and the guard prevents the growing beets from being
covered by the loose soil.
The Process of Thinning.
When the bepts stiow four leaves tbe
process of thinning should take place.
If the rows be eightppn inches apart
a vigorous plnnt should be left every
eight or ten Indies. Careful selection
should be mnde nnd nil the puny
plunts destroypd. It Is better to snve
the vigorous plunts even If regular In
tenuis are not preserved, but no space
sbould be left greater than from twelve
to fifteen Inches in extent. Much of
the thinning work can be doue with n
nnrrow hoe, but when the plants are
very close together at the plnce where
tho preserved plnnt is to grow the work
must be done by hnnd. It Is well to
give a thorough bund hoeing at the
time of thinning, and the subsequent
cultivation iu most seasons may be
carried on with horsepower.
When More Advanced.
When thp beets are more advanced
a few deeper cultivation may be desirable, and for those any good narrow
cultivator may be used for single rows
or a wider one for double rows. The
cultivation In all cusps should be conducted for the double purpose of keeping the beets entirely free from weeds
and for preserving the proper tilth of
tbe surface of the soil.
It may lie snid that at lpnst once a
week during the period of growing,
lasting from six to eight weeks, the
beet field should bo cultivated. If the
season be very dry frequent cultivation
will be found useful. The final cultivation should leave the soil practically
level. During cultivation cure should
be taken not tp injure either the
leaves or the root of the beet, and
when the foliage of the growing crop
begins to cover well the surface of the
soil cultivation may be suspended.

Audubon's   Lame  Attempt  to  Succeed
as a Merchant.
It Is not generally remembered thai
the worldwide reputation of Audubon
ns n naturalist incidentally Is due to
his failure to establish himself pernia
nently as a Missouri grocery merchant
and dealer in the best brands of Ken
tucky whisky.
In 1810 he and Ferdinand Rozler ot
St  Genevieve  loaded  a  keel   bont at
Louisville.   Ky.,   with   310   barrels  of
whisky nnd groceries nnd started down
the Ohio nnd Mississippi to St. Gene
vleve to open a grocery store. The trip
wns made during lhe winter, nnd tb<
streams  were so  full of Ice that thi
boat wns drawn up against the bank
and  whiter quarters were established
lust below Cane Girardeau.  When SI
Genevieve was reached, niter tne open
Ing of navigation, thp linn of Audn
bon __ Rozler opened their store and
did n prosperous business. But the
business was done by Rozler, for Au
dubon preferred the woods to the conn
ter and devoted more of his time to
sketching and shilling tiirds than he
did to marketing the 310 barrels of
Kentucky bourbon or any other gro
cerlos. This led to a dissolution of the
partnership. On April 11, 1811. Andu
bon, convinced of his unfitness for
business, sold out to Itozler and took
up the work for which he was better
Itted than any one who had livpd before or who has lived since and from
n fourth rate grocer been me the great
ornithologist. The grocery business
which Audubon abandoned grew until
finally it "extended throughout all of

Breeding  In Wildest Regions of Scottish Highlands.
Although breeding in the wildest
and most exposed regions of the
Highlands, the golden eagle ia one of
our first birds to commence nesting
operations, and as early as the end of
January the birds are collecting mnt-
erial to repair the old eyrie, or else
are busily pngaged in constructing a
new one. This year, says a writer in
J he Scotsman, after a very frosty
New Year, the weather suddenly
changed for tl_e better on Jan. 8, and
on that day we noted a pair of eagles
soaring round their eyrfe. On revisiting the locality on April 17 the keeper
informed us that ho had seen the hen
bird sitting nearly three weeks nrev-
jously, and had also seen the 'cock
bird alight on the top of the rock on
which tho eyrie is situated. This particular eyrie is very cunningly placed
under the shelter o'f a projecting rock,
and cannot bo reached without the aid
of a rope���in fact, it is impossible
even to see the eggs from any point
of vantage, The morning on which we
visited the pagle at her home was exceptionally fine, with a cloudless sky
and very warm atmosphere, so we
had no fears ns to the results of the
eagle's absence from her eggs. We
had hoppd to obtain a snapshot of the
hen ns she rose from the nest, and
for that purpose crept up cautiously
until within a few yards of the oyrio,
and then shouted nnd whlntlod, thinking the bird would immediately take
flight. But there were no signs of life,
nnd as we could not actually see into
tho nest wo surmispd that the hpn
was off fpeding. Just as we were on
n dangerous part of the cliff, however, and in such a position that the
use of the camera wns an impossibility, the eagle sailed leisurely off the
nest, and so thp opportunity of a
photograph was lost for tho dav. She
appeared tn be an old bird, judging
from the lightness of her coloring, nnd
snared off till a mere speck in the sky.
After trying vninly to roach the npst
from two points, wo made our way to
a very old nest of the fork-tailed kite,
which has now become quite extinct,
as far as Scotland is concerned, ��nd
it was very interesting to soe than although thn nest had not heen tc, int-
ed for quite 30 yp.irs, yet it still Mm-
ed in perfect order, as though the
kite were using it every season.
The district we wore visiting boasts
of a good number of eagle's eyries, so
the following day we set out to try to
discover a nest which was situated
on the other side of the valley, in an
ancient fir tree. The weuther had
completely changed, and instead of
bright sun and warm breezes, wo had
to fight our way against n strong
northerly wind, with squalls of snow
and hail. We had doubts as to the
eyrie being occupied, as last season
tht* hen bird was found dead on the
nost, with pnrt of hor bill broken
nwav���although whether this was, nc-
tually the cause of death it would be
difficult tn sa>���nnd when the tree
was reached, the pyrin was found to
be quite deserted, with great numbers
of the unlucky bird's feathers still
clinging to the sticks of which the
nest was composed.
When npar the eyrie, thn cock bird
came sweeping over the brow of the
hill, nnd on catching sight of us im-
mediately began to rise against the
wind. Higher and higher he sailed,
and it was wonderful to spe how he
ascended with wings practically motionless, utilizing the wind in a marvellous way. Tn the space of five
minutes hn hnd risen to an extraordinary hiight, and when some passing
clouds cnme across, he appeared to
hn_ a good distance above them. By
this time he looked no bigger than a
lurk, nnd ultimately became quite
invisible, hnving renchod n height of
perhaps 3,000 feet. The eyrie was
biiilt on a tree with a very extensive
view, nnd ns n general rule it will
be found that the eagles use n tree
or rock with n wide outlook. Northward from tho nest, the hpather
gradually became obliterated by the
heavy covering of snow, and the hill
top some 4,000 fppt high appeared
dimly through the mist, with blinding clouds of "spin drift" being
swept across tlie plateau before the

: nee  on  Marcil  IU,   _��._.,  and  it  was
' only u few weeks thereafter when the
nuge steel frame "wns in place, to tne
, amazement  of  ull   who  nud  watched
I ihe building operations, and the masonry wus begun.     Work wns carried
iuii so rapidly and well that the theatre   wus   tinown   open   informally   to
mo   public   on   December   17,    with
Pollard's   Australian   Lilliputian   Opera Company as the attraction, While
I tlie exterior was practically complete
i at that lime, there remained much lo
bo done in tho interior, and tho work
was curried on even though the theatre  was  open  for   business    all    the
lime, as attractions which bad been
booked   many   months    in    advance
nud to be played,
On February 18, 1906, the theatre bo-
[ ing complete in every detail, it wns
formally dedicated. The speakers for
the occasion were Sir Daniel McMillan
lieut.-governor of Manitoba; Premier
Koblin of Manitoba; and Mayor Ash-
down of Winnipeg. All three lauded
the enterprise and public spirit of
Manager Walker for erecting in Winnipeg tlie most palatial playhouse in
the Dominion���indeed, u theatre
which for beaiity, safety, equipment
botli before and behind the curtain,
and for the comfort of its patrons,
has but few equals and no superior
in  all  America.
The  Walker  Theatre    cost    nearly
! $350,000,  and is made wholly of fireproof materials, even the auditorium
floorings  and  other woodwork  being
the cut marked 'Lobby." This is all
marble-tiled and wainscotted, with
beautiful decorations in bronze on the
upper walls and ceiling, all accentuated by superb electriliers.
The main floor foyer is a dream of
elegance, with its warm yet refined
color scheme, and decorations. One
finds the big settees at either end
most inviting lounging places between tlie acts. The men who smoke
find comfortable quarters during the
entrp-acts in the spacious smoking
room in tlie basement, or in the com-
fortable room in the balcony. As for
the ladies, they have every convenience furnished them in the handsome retiring rooms on tlie first and
second Hoo.o, where maids are in attendance. The stairways are ull of
steel and brass and very wide.
Patrons of the theatre are protected from rain or sun while waiting for their carriages by the liana-
some marquis over the entrance. It
is shown  above.
The Walker Theatre was built with
a  view  to   b*ing  kept   open  all   the
year round, hence the perfect heutiug,
cooling  and  ventilating  plant  which
I was   installed   at   a   cost   of   $14,000.
I This  plan  brings fresh air from tlie
' top  oi   the   building  in   winter  and,
after    cleansing    it,  pusses  it    over
Steam   coils,   and  then   it   is   fanned
1 up into tho house by two immense
! fans   through   apertures   in   the   floor
. of the auditorium,
In the summer tlio fresh air is
taken in and cleansed in tlie same
manner, but it is passed over ice and
then fanned through tho house. How
successful this cooling and ventilating system is may be gathered from
the fact that the mercury never rose
abovo 70 degrees in tlie Walker Theatre on the wannest nights during the
various performances given there last
summer, Therefore it ia an ideal
plnce in wliich to while away the
warm summer afternoons or evenings.
Another feature that should be mentioned in speaking of tlio comfort lo
the patrons of the house is tlie width
of tlie seats und the fnct thut there
is no crowding between he rows. One
may sit in absolute ease and comfort.
