(By a Correspondent).
The fact that two ladieB, Mrs. Rankine and Miss Cue, have accomplished
tie trip to and from New Denver glacier
might aeem to some to point to the conclusion that no difficulties of much
account aro met with on the journey.
To those, however, who know what is to
be done, the fact would rather point
out the stamina possessed by these
ladies and by no oue is this quality more
appreciated than by the gentlemen of
the party.
The party consisting of Messrs.' Herbert Cue, Colin Harris, T. T. Rankine,
and the ladies mentioned above, set off
on Friday and with no difficulty whatever made camp the first night at the
top of the first, or Thomson Falls. The
way acrose tbe flat to these falls is not
yet opened by a ti ail and the method of
progression is largely by utilising the
numerous fallen trees as a pathway. On
the level this ie no gnat feat, provided
head and spikea are go.nl, but anyone
will admit that the same method of progression on a sleep slope where many
logs lie at an a**ule ang'e, demands a
fair amount of coolness and nerve.
Luckily this was a possession of all present and progress I hereby rendered rapid.
Aa only one night wns to he spent in
the open it was agreed that the packing
up a tent was unnecessary, but were
anyone to ask if tliey should follow the
same plan, I am sure, with one voice,
all would give Punch's advice to the
prospective Benedict���''Don't." It was
cold, but I believe that even that would
not have prevented sleep, had not an
inqu:sitive porcupine, a few minutes
after ns settling down, attempted a meal
off Mr. Cue's boots. These at the time
being ou duly, the possessor awoke with
a remnik whicli drove Morpheus away
from Cimmerian realms, for he certainly
did not reappear that night. Incidentally, the porcupine got a "daud on the
neb" and the only damage be did waB
the leaving a few quills on tlie butt ol
a rifle.
Little credit perhaps is due to tlie
climbers for lhe early start made on
Saturday, for it ��aa after all, the warmest thing to do. Progress waB made in
leisurely fashion to tlie permanent camp
a hut situated on the flat above tbe
second, or Blumenauer Falls. This hut
has recently been built by Mr. Mathie-
soh, to whose kindness all are indebted
for the shelter it provided. Saturday
afternoon and evening were spent in
"loafing" and a Blight exploration of the
basin in wliich we were. This has been
described already in your paper and
nothing further need be said of it than
that those who Baw it for the first time
fully er dorscd what has been said regarding its beauty.
Saturday night was a night of sleep���
a condition brought about by the experience of thc night before���and by the
generous waainth ol a fire wliich one of
the party was deputed to keep alight.
Unlike the soldier of Pompeii he neglected his duty and the first intimation
received thereof was the appearance of
our friend the porcupine coming down
the chimney. He went out the same
way, and the maledictions his visit cal led
forth kept the fireman alive to a conscientious fulfilment of his duty.
Next morning brightand early (credit
ia due Ibis time) w��**set off for the Glacier and its base we reached at 11 a.m.,
exactly a year after Messrs. Harris, Nel-
Bon and Thomlinson made the trip.
The view into Mill Creek Basin with
its lake, its creek, its waterfalls and
noble peaks was much enjoyed.
Roping together we started our final
lap. Tho lower part of the 'glacier is
entirely free from snow, but the ice was
comperitively soft and the footnold
firm and secure. Sion however w
were on snow pure and simple and we
climbed to the peak between Brouee
and Hunter peaks for two rea-ona
firstly, that waa the highest point the
snow reached, secondly, it was virgin
soil to prospective peak conquerors.
Crevassoj of enormous deptn were
passed, but aa these were defined with
the utmost regularity, little danger
was anticipated and none was met with.
From the summit of the enow a gorgeous panorama revealed itself. Peak
after peak in all directions challenged
tbo sky. Glacier on all sides sent their
contributions to their contributions to
the creeks running to swell our beautiful lake. At our feet the six-mile
basin was a pei feet dream of beauty
and I lie present writer haa no intention
of even attempting dimly to depict it
in nii'i'e words.
As it would never have done to have
come home without being on the peak,
two of the party ascended the portion
rearing itself beyond the enow. The
climb was short but arduous and the
attidudes adopted by the climbers
best left to the imagination. To Mrs.
Rankine belongs the honor scaling the
topmost pinnacle.
The return journey to the camp was
without incident and the homeward jour-
ney next morning was started to the
accompaniment of rain and the strains
of "Marching Through Georgia" sung
by four lusty throats. Four? Yes, for
the fifth was speechless with indignation.   He was looking for deer.
Rain favoured the devoted band all
tlie way home and so wet did they become, that though it cleared while tliey
snatched a bite of lunch they sat not
down. Gentle reader, did you ever
sit down or bend with wet jeans on?
If so you can understand- tlieir attitude
Tbo lake shore wa9 reached about
five, and when Mr. Ed. Angrignon
appeared witli his launch he looked to
the dripping beings a perfect angel of
light. Our appearance can be best understood from the first remark he made
wliich was, "What hotel do you want to
go to?" But like Mark Tapley, we
were still jolly.
Tho sports committee who had the
arrangements in hand for the Labor
Day celebration at Slocan City are to
ho congratulated on the success of their
effbi'ls, fordespite a heavy thunderstorm
which broke over the district early on
Monday morning and continued until
the time for the departure of visitors
from New Denver and Silverton, a good
number from the two latter places
made the journey down the lake and
were rewarded by witnessing a splendid
day's sport. The New Denverites alsa
had the satisfaction of seeing their
pets win lho medals by defeating their
livals in tho football match against
Slocan, by two goals toone, thus aveng
ing the defeat which waa inflicted on
them by the latter team on Empire
The first item on the program, the
rifle match between Slocan and New
Denver, did not materialize, owing to
the latter team failing to put in an
appearance, therefore there was nothing
doing in the morning.other than making
general preparations for Ihe afternoon
The str. Slocan reached Slocan about
one o'clock with a fair representation
from New Denver and Silverton and
was met by the different committtces,
together with a large number of Ihe
citizens. The Slocan brass band was
also on band and rendered some good
music while the boat was being landed.
The first event of the afternoon was
the football match���New Denver vs.
Slocan, and when the teams lined up
it was seen that both sides included a
number of heavyweights. The score
sheet at half-time remained blank, but
in the second half New Denver notched
two goals to their opponents one, and so
inn out winners.
The following was the line-up:���
Slocan���Hieks, goal; Knechtcl and j
Morrison, full backs; Anderson, Plant.
Graham, half-backs; Parker, St. Denis,
Pinchbeck, McMillan, Tipping, forwards.
New Denver���Williams, goal; Baker
and Lowe, full backs; Pester, Steven-
I >n, A. N. Other, ha'f backs; Walker,
.larrctt, Smith, McDonald, Sutherland,
After the cheering was over the crowd
left the ground and went to Main Street
where the other events were pulled off.

The pony race was the next event for
which tbere were 4 entries, the following competing: "Nitchie," owned by
Cameron and Kennedy ; Rider���Cameron; "Trilby,-" owned by J. M. Rae;
Rider���Murray; "Buck," owned by
Archie Rae; Rider���Tipping; "Dandy,"
owned by Anderson ; Rider���Anderson

2nd Heat���"Nitchie," 1st; "Dandy,"

In this heat "Trilby" was leading to
within 50 yards of tbe winning post,
when she took a notion to explore one
of the side streets, and the rider having
apparently the same notion, allowed her
to go wiln the result that the rider was
thrown but not hurt, and it took so long
to find her afterwards that she was
placed last in the second heat.
3id Heat���"Trilby nnd "Dandy" race
for second place, "Trilby" being the
This raco caused "all kinds of excitement" and considerable Slocan money
changed hands in consequence. In fact,
eo great was the excitement that one
of the Slocan "game sports" so far forgot himself as to offer a bet of $50 even
money that J. M. Rue's "Dixie" could
win out on "Trilby," be?t two in three
heat--. The wager was promptly taken,
and the race is scheduled to take place
over tho same course as Monday's race,
on Monday, September 21st, and should
again prove very exciting.
The children's sports next provided
amusement for the onlookers and every
child went home happy to know that he
or she had got money in their race.
The ladies' nail-driving contest, for
which tnere was five entries, was won
by Mrs. W. Hicks, the second prize going to Mrs. T. McNeish. Druggist Anderson was on hand during tbe contest
with bandages, etc., in case-of accidents,
but bis services were not required, and
tlio ladies Bmiled triumphantly. The
winner is entitled to qualify to enter
any such contest in B. C.
The last event was the tug of war���
Slocan City vs. All Comers. The challenge was taken up by a team of eleven
men from the Westmont mine, but Slocan took them over the line with comparative ease.
Thus came to a close a very enjoyable
The judges in all events were Wm.
Hunter, M.P.P. and Mayor McNeish.
During the greater part of the afternoon the weather was damp, but those
interested did not apparently notice it.
The Slocan Brass Band under the
leadership of "Bert" Northey and with
the assistance of "Jockey" Thomlinson
of New Denver, rendered "all kinds of
music" during tho games. The band
stand was very appropriately decorated
for the occasion, as also was a number
of business houses, and particularly the
Westmont hotel.
For the convenience of the ladies and
children, the Slocan "Ladies Aid"
opened up an ice-cream, tea, coffee and
cake parlour and did considerable business in those lines.
In the evening a grand ball was given i
under the   auspices of   Slocan Lodge'
I.O.O.F. and waa will attended, about
thirty:five couples being present. I
The hall waa not quite large enough
for tho number present, but all man-1
aged to find anfiicient room to dance to
the eplendid music played by Northey's
Orchestra. Lunch was served at 12,30.
The ball broke up at 4 a.m., and those
fortunate enough to be living in Slocan
Cily repaired home to rest after the
eventful day while those belonging to
tlie sister towns awaited the leaving of
the steamer "fc'locau" to convey them to
their homes.
The different committees all hope
that each and every one of the visitors
enjoyed themselves thoroughly and that
when Slocan City again celebrates they
will not fail to visit ua.
In times past the fiuit growers of tho
Slocan have sent many an exhibit to
the Nelson Fair and have won many
prizes there, hut however satisfactory
to the exhibitor this has been, the diatrict has been very littlo benefited by
these successes as there was nothing to
show that the giant squash or magnificent apples came from this locality, and
the glory ond honor fell to Nelson.
This year the fruit growers of the
Slocan bave decided to enter an exhibit
for the district eo that tho general public may know what sort of fruit, etc.,
we can raiso here, and we Bhall get due
credit for our display.
The Kootenay division has been divided up into eight districts by the
managers of the Fair, Our district comprises tho Slocan river and Slocan lake
sections; it is called number five, whilst
the Arrow lake district, of which T.
Abriel, of Nakusp, and C. B. McAllister
of Burton City, is in charge, is called
No. 8.
Our plan for No. 5 district is to collect the best possible dlrplay of fruit
from this neighbourhood at the Bosun
Hall, New Denver, on Monday, September 21st, and from t is display select tho best specimens to be sent to
The district exhibit will be open to
the public free of charge during Monday
afternoon, Mid we hrpe that a great
number will make a point of seeing the
display, whicli will be a very beautiful
one if we do our best.
Many of our friends down tho Slocan
river will probably find it inconvenient
to bring or send their fruit lo New Denver. Wc ask them to bring their fruit
carefully packed, to the train for Nelson, on Tuesday, September 22nd, when
I shall be happy to take charge of it,
and if suitable, include it in the exhibit.
I shall also be able to tako charge of
other exhibits if necessary. It must be
understood that Ihe district competition is for fruit only, olher exhibits, such
as vegetables, must go in their respective classes.
The district exhibits will be judged
according to the following score card;���
Color  20 points;
Size 10     ���
Uniformity of Size 10     ,,
Uniformity of Color 10     ���
Freedom from blemish 20     ���
Greatest number of varieties 20     ,,
Decoration and arrangement 10     ,,
Ploase send a good plateful of of whatever j*ou intend to exhibit so that we
can select fine, even, well-shaped specimens, free from blemish. Have them
at New Denver by mid-day Monday, or
else packed ready for the train on Tues**
Try and see the display in the Bosun
Hall and help to make it a success.
Mrs. Harris will give a book as a prize
for the best bouquet of wild flowers
arranged by any of the school childron
in tbe district.
If those who intend to send fruit to
tlie exhibition but who do not intend to
show it at New Denver, will write to
me, ti'llin.> me what they have, it will
be of great assistance.

And, Indeed, what he had seen was
enough to fill any mau with amazement, Out of the small square window which faced him a man bad suddenly shot headf iremost, pitching ou
to bis outstretched hands and theu
bounding to his fi et. Within a foot of
bis heels came the head of a second

first, and yet recovered himself as
quickly. The one wore the blue coat
nnd silver facings of tho king's guard;

ench carried a short rusty iron bar in

"Seize these men!" he shrieked, turning to his followers.
"Oue moment!" cried De Catinat,
wltb a voice nnd manner which commanded attention. "You see by my

"On, you cowards!" roared Do Montespan.
But tho men at arms hesitated, for
the fear of the king was as a great

"This woman," he cried, "is the king's

curse he flashed out his sword and

Insensible beside the block. De Catinat sprang between them to protect
her, but Marceau, tho bearded scue-

round the waist. With the strength
of a maniac, his teeth clinched and the
foam churning from the corners of his
lips, De Montespan writhed round iu

"I will ho there In two hours."
"Havo you horses?"
"Ours were slain." \
"You will find some in 'the stables
here. Pick the best, since you have

The advice was too good to be overlooked. De Catinat, beckoning to
Amos Green, hurried awny with him
to the stables, whilo De Brissnc, with
a few short, sharp orders, disarmed the
retainers, stationed his guardsmen all
over the cnstle nnd arranged for the
removal of the lady and for the custody of her husband. An hour Inter the
two friends were riding swiftly down
the country road, iiiliuliiig the sweet
air, which seemed the fresher for tlieir
late experience of the dank, foul vapors of their dungeon.
TWO dnys nfter Mme. de Muln-
tenon's marriage to the king
there wns held within the humble wii-HS of her little room a
meeting which was destined to enuse
Untold  misery to mnny  hundreds of
thousands of people.
The time had come wheu the church
was to claim her promise from madame, nnd her pnle cheeks uml snd eyes
showed how vain it hnd been for her
to try to drown the pleadings of her
tender henrt hy the arguments of the
bigots around her. She knew the Huguenots of France. Who could kuow
them better, seeing that she wus herself from tbelr stock and hail been
brought up In thoir faith? Sbe knew
their patience, their nobility, their independence, their (tenacity. Whut
chance wus there that they would conform to tho king's wish? A few greut
nobles might, but the others would
laugh nt the galleys, the jnll, or even
the gallows, when the fuith of their
fathers wus at stake. If their creed
were no longer tolerated, theu, nnd if
they remained true to it, they must
either fly from the country or spend a
living ilcnth tugging ut nn onr or working in n chain sung upon the rouds.
The eloquent Bishop Bossuet was
there, with Louvois, the minister of
war, nnd the thin, pule Jesuit, Futbe**
m cnaise, cnen piling myuuient upon
argument to overcome the reluctance
of the king. Madame bent over her
tapestry und weaved her colored silks
iu silence, while the king leuned upon
his baud uud listened with the fnce of
a mau who knows thut be is driven
uud yet cuu hardly turn agaiust the
gauds. On the low table luy a paper,
with pen and ink beside it. It was the
order for the revocation, nnd it ouly
needed the king's signature to make it
tbe law.
"And so, futber, you are of opinion
thut if I slump out heresy in this fush-
ion 1 shnll assure my own sulvntiou in
the next world?" bo nsked.
"You will hnve merited a reward."
"And you think so, too, M. Bishop?"
"Assuredly, sire."
"Besides, sire," snid Tere la Chaise
softly, "there would be little ueed for
stronger measures. As I hnve already
remarked to you, you nre so beloved iu
your kingdom tbat the mere assurance
that you had expressed your will upon
the subject would be euougb to turn
them all to the true faith."
"I wish that I could think so, father;
I wish that I could think so. But what
is this?"
It wns bis valet who had half opened
the door.
"Captain de Catinat is here, sire."
"Ask the captain to enter. Ah!" A
happy 'thought seemed to have struck
hlm. "We shall see whnt love for me
will do in such n mntter, for If It ii
anywhere to bo found It must be among
my own body servants."
The guardsman had arrived that Instant from bis long ride, nnd, leaving
Amos Green with the horses, be had
come on at once, all dusty mid travel

king, lie entered now and stood with

"Major de Brissnc hnde me tell you,

Louis anil his wife exchanged a quick
glance of relief.
"That is well," said he. "By the
way, captain, you have served me in
many ways of lnte nnd nlwnys with
success. I hour, Louvois, thut De la
Salle is dead of the smallpox."
"He died yesterday, sire."
"Then I desire that you make out

"It ls not a very severe one. You

Now I have hopes that there are many
of my faithful subjects who are at

"Yes, sire." The young man hnd

derstand. I would glndly hnve you,
then, ns n first fruit of this greut mens-

The young guardsman still hesitated,
though bis doubts were rnther ns to
how lie should frame his reply than as
to whut its substance should he. He
felt thnt in nn Instant Fortune had
wiped out nil tlie good turns wbtch she
bad done him during his pnst life and
that now, fur from being in her debt,
he held a heavy score ngaiust her. The
king arched his eyebrows and drummed his fingers impatiently as he
glanced at the downcast fnce nud dejected bearing.
"Why all this thought?" be cried.
"You are a man whom I have raised
and whom I will raise. He who bus a

"I have none, sire, outside your service."
"Why tbis silence, then? Why do
you not give the assurance which I demand V"
"I cannot do it, sire. It Is impossible.

"Then believe it."
"Alns, sire, n mnn cannot force himself to believe. Belief is n tiling which

"On my word, father," suld Louis,
glancing, with n hitter smile, at his
Jesuit confessor, "I shnll hnve to pick

you abjure or not?"
"I cannot, sire."
"You see," suid Louis, turning again
to the Jesuit, "it will not be ns easy

"This man is obstinate, It Is true, but

Education Is Freeing Her From the
Shackles  of  Old  Customs.
As a result of the propaganda work
that is now being curried on by the
East Indians in behalf of women,
womanhood all over Hindostan is becoming awakened. The members oi
the "weaker" sex are beginning to insist upon being allowed to come into
their own. Iu many parts of Hindostan women are no longer confined
in their houses and early marriage
has entirely been done away with in
educated circles. The people huve
commenced to realize that if n boy is
educated, just one man is educated;
but, on tbe eontrnry, if a girl is enlightened it means the uplift of the
whole family. India hns begun to
feel thut the Kast Indian women are
the country's best asset. They mold
and fashion the destiny of tiie nution
and fix its eburacter.
The present generation bas produced women of whom India is proud.
Into the learned professions Hindustan has sent her daughters. As doctors of religion, law, literature, medicine, philosophy, music and art, there
are East Indian women who can hold
their own not only with the women
but also with the men of other countries of the world. True they nre
few numerically; but they are like
the yeast which, though proportionately very smnll in nniount, leavens
the "whole mass. The innsses are still
backward and much remnins to be
done; but n beginning his been inmle.
Once proper provision is mnde for
her education her evolution will proceed apace. Tbe Must Indian woman,
no mutter how illiterate, she muy bo,
is usually nble to recite from memory scores of pages of religious und
epic poems, not merely like a pur-
rot, but with understanding. The

metaphysical and religious teaming
she has bad for generations make her
an  apt and  willing student.
Extraordinary Scene In London Theatre Where Deaf Mutes Acted.
To demonstrate their remarkable
facility of communication, the deaf
nnd dumb people in London arranged
an entertainment recently ut the St.
Saviour's Social Club, Oxford street.
A one-act play wus stng-_ in which
actors, scene sifters and stage manager wore all (leaf nnd dumb, us were
the audience wbo witnessed the performance. Sir Arthur H. Fnirburn,
the rlenf and dumb baronet, who was
one of the spectators, hud interested
himsell greatly  in the project.
The scene was nn extrnordinnry
one. Not n sound broke the stillness
of the hall during the whole time the
play wns on, both notion and dialogue
tieing accomplished in silence. The
actors, with mobile Inces, gesticulated
quaintly under the limelight, reeling
off their parts upon fingers which
moved with a lightning-like rapidity.
But the audience wns the more interesting study. Looking forward in
their sentss, they were engrossed in
the unfolding of the plot, following
every movement of the players on
the stage. But they watched tho actors' fingers Instead of their fuces,
and turned quickly to each other, now
anil again, to exchnnge u smiling gesture of comprehension.
When an Important point in the
dialogue arose, the actor who happened to be "speaking" faced his
audience directly, and moderated the
speed at which his lingers moved.
Then, pausing n moment, he waited
until the emphatic noils of his "auditors" told him that his observution
bnd   been   understood. ,

our minds to become the laughingstock of Sor.th China. Shau-ki-wan,
where the nets of piracy are reported,
was once a favorite hnunt and centre
of operations for some of the most
desperate of the gangs of sea robbers
which used to infest the coast of

Start by Telling Names and Ages and
End  With  Tea  Drinking.
In our ordinary social life acquaintanceship commences through personal
introduction by friends or by letters
of introduction, in official life almost
always in the latter wny. With you
a fresh comer arriving in your neighborhood to dwell is called upon by
the older residents if the newcomer
be considered entitled to that courtesy and you think the friendship is
worth cultivating.
This is not tlie custom with us.
With us the newcomer makes the first
call on the old residents. The gentleman calls alone, and after the acquaintanceship hns been formed the
newly arrived lndy will send her maid
with the message that she proposes
to cnll on lho neighboring lndy, nnd
the hitter nnmes the dny and hour at
wliich she will receive her visitor.
Leaving cards, with us, is an act of
courtesy which also occupies a very
prominent pnrt in the daily routine
of n gentleman's life, especially when
he is moving in official circles.
When the visitor is ushered into the
presence of the visited the visitor bows
to his host or on more formal occasions makes courtesy to him. Handshaking, not, being the custom, is dispensed with. The making of n courtesy
is called "ching ngnn" in China. If
any one does that to you, you must
return it, nlthough you can return
it in n more or less formal Way. Tbis
having boon done, tho host will ns-
simi his visitor to the place of honor,
which may be on the right or loft,
according to eiroumstniices.
When bulb the visitor nnd his host
are seated the conversation is genor-
nlly opened, it meeting for the first
time, by asking encb other's surname,
then thoir other nnmes, age, district
whence they conic nnd nil sorts of
such ineuniiiKless generalities ns you
are accustomed to henr in high
society. But it is always customary
with us to prefix the word "honorable"���e. g., Instead of snying, ns you
do, "Whom bnve I the pleasure of
addressing?" we say, "What is your
honorable nnme?" Other questions
are asked by us in tbe snme compli-
mentnry strain. With you your custom is quite different, as for you to
usk the age of any of your visitors
would be considered very rude, especially if mooting for tbe first time.
But in China you mny hnve no misgivings ns to shocking any one's tender susceptibilities by so doing.
Our  official   calls   are   principally
business   ones,   and   as   soon   as   the
business is terminated the host raises
his teacup to his lips,  which  cup is
always there, whether wanted or not,
for in China there is no such custom

King Edward Is Thoughtful and Trie*

King Edward is a model landlord,
says a writer, and when at Sandring-

his agent and takes an active personal interest in the estate and in the
well being of the people. Most affectionate relations exist between tbe
royal landlord and his tenants and
employes. There is a cottage hospital
on the estate for sick indoor and outdoor servants, and it contains pleasant nurses' quarters as well as sick
wards. Each village on the estate
has its club for workingmen, and in
these institutions the King takes the
closest interest. It is the King's custom on Sundays to walk to church,
while the Queen and other ladies
drive. His Majesty joins in tho

Dumber of campers on the field, and
'.he eccentric speaker addressed vast
concourses nt every service, but he

IIo felt that something should be done
lo stir the sinners to repentance, so
be prepared n strong sermon on the
second coming of Christ. He told how
She world would go on In Its sin and
wickedness and ut Inst Gabriel would
sound his trumpet nud timo would
como to nn end. He described tbe
horrors of the lost and the joys of
those who wore saved. The sermon
grew In intensity, nnd he brought his
poople up to n grand climax, wben suddenly the sound of a trumpet smote
tbe curs of the anxious throng.
There was a great sensation, and
many fell upon their knees In terror
and began to repent and pray. Women
.creamed and strong men groaned.
Pandemonium wns let loose for a few
minutes. After the terror had somewhat ceased tho preacher called lo a
man up a tree, nnd he descended with
i long tin horn (n bis hand. The
speaker then turned In fierce wrath
and upbraided the people. He cried
out In stentorian tones that, If a man
with a tin horn up a tree could
frighten them so, ho.v would It be In
the last great ond when Gabriel's
trumpet Bounded tho knell of the world!
The sermon had a great effect upon
the vast audience, and many hundreds
flocked to the front and were converted.

death before his eyes. Everything

dreadful Initiation into the mysteries
of the tremendous after life for which
his present existence was but a preparation. His cemeteries were not bidden away iu remote suburbs; his dead
were not covered with mere grassy-
mounds or a slab of stoue. The whole
land was his graveyard; Its whole art
was of the mortuary. "Are there no
graves ln Egypt thnt thou hnst brought
us into the wilderness to die?" asked
the Israelites in derision, and we may
believe that Moses winced at the sarcasm.
Egypt Is the land of graves, and the
whole euergy of the people that could

chambers, pits, nil painfully excavated
In honor of tho Illustrious dead and

skill to mnke them fit habitations for

point of existence. The mason was
squaring blocks for tbe tomb chamber;
tho potter molded Images of the gods
or bowls nnd Jars to be placed In the
grave for the protection or refreshment
of the Kn, exhausted with the ordeals
of tho underworld; the sculptor and
painter were at work upon the walls
of tho funeral chamber, Illustrating the
scones through which the ghost was to

of the departed.

"Ob, It Is simple enough," snld the
honest agriculturist "One week we

That makes a layer of lenn meat, Next
week wo givo hlm nil he enn possibly
eat, even working overtime, and thnt
makes a row of fat. So by alternate

"Well," answered the preserve own

"Don't you knowt man," exclaimed
the sportsman, with a laugh, "that any

Two of our fruit ranchers have, during tbe past week, been the victims of
4be thieving proclivities of some individual who annexed the apples off two
���trees���one in each orchard���which the
owners were cultivating with the special
intention of exhibitiug them at Nelson
Fair. It is not thought to be the woik
of mischievous youngsters, but rather of
eome evil-disposed person with covetous
.eycB. It is to be hoped the offender
will be quickly found out and a smart
punishment inflicted. It is hardly credible that one of onr own citizens would
be guilty of such a theft, but should
such prove to be the case, his position
lu the town should be made too hot for
him to stay, as we have no use for
such swine.
It is reported that it is positively
asserted that the government has definitely decided on Tuesday, November
3rd, as the day of the general elections.
While giving esprefgion to high ideals
one instant, Mr. Smith Curtis the next
descends to the veriest kind of ward
politics. On Monday evening for example, he told the Young Liberals that
if the Lauriei* Government were returned it would puniBh tbe people of
the constituency to have a supporter of
that government in the bouse of Common1*, the inference being that Sir Wilfrid would punish the people of the constituency by withholding the grants to
which they are iuslly entitled il they
elected an opposition member, But
Mr. Curtis did not say what would be
the position of affairs should Mr. Borden be returned to power. If Mr. Curtis applied tbe same standard of statesmanship to Mr. Borden that he does to
his own leader, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, he
would expect the constituency to be
punished for electing him, if the conservative leader is returned to power,
whicli is quite as likely ns that the peo
pie should trust the present government
with another term of office. ��� NelBon
Mr. Smith Curtis is advocating gov-
(**nment control of railway rates but he
is Buppor.i ig a government which four

Spokane Interstate Fair.
One of the big features of tlie Spokane
Fair will be the military drill on October
Oth, the second day of the Fair, by Ihe
two Spokane companies of the Washington Nalional Guard, under command of
Captains Denton Croiv and Benjamin
Hayes, The soldiers will arrive on tbe
ground in the forenoon and from that
time until lale in tlie evening will carry
out in detail duties that would fall to
tlieir lot in war time, so that all visitors
���on the grounds may see for themselves
what the life of a National Guardsman
in active service is.
The feature of the work of the troops
will be a competitive drill between the
two companies for the trophy* Hag which
tlie management of the fair will present
to the winning contingent. The other
exercises will inclnde the setting-up
drills, when the soldier, will pitch their
canvas abodes and cook tlieir own dinner in tlie mess tent. The afternoon
will be taken up with company man-
icuvres comprising the extended order
and battle formations, At the conclusion of the afternoon drill, the tioopers
will inarch back to their shelter tents
and draw their supper rations from the
company mess.
In the evening the militia will conclude their exhibition with a novel and
spectacular searchlight drilll, during
wliich they will perform company man-
oiuvres by the rays of a powerful searchlight such as is used in war times,
playing upon the blue and white of their

October 5th, I believe we shall be able
to muster the full quota of troops belonging to tlie two companies of the

commenting on the plans that are being
made for the participation of the militia
at the fair. "At present, we are taking
a rest of a month following tbe hard
drilling we had at the army encampment at American Lake. The only
work the men are doing now is target
practice, hut about ihe middle of September we shall begin our regu ation
drilling again in the armoury."

The September numbor of "Westward
Ho!" is not only up to the expectations
which the sanguine publishers have
created, but far exceeds them. Its short,
crisp and pointed romances are all that
could bu desired. Not one of tliem but
give-i us a new insight into human life
and conduct, "lhe Remitlamc Man,"
a tale of Medicine Hat; "The Mission
of Roses," and an "Old-Fashioned
Colonel" are, with several others, fascinating, and best of all, elevating and
calculated to draw out and inspire ull
that is best in the reader. This is tlie
kind of fiction needed in the home.
Tbe September articles are lucid and
concern present problems, industrial
developments, and the future potentialities of Western Canada, to which the
puhlisheis seem intensely devoted.
Those on "Prince Rupeit in the Making," "Tbe West as a Field of Immigration," "An Appreciation of Sir
Thomas Shaughncssy," and many others
are all most interesting and instructive ;
