Ail the best  of local talent has come to the aid of the  promoters, and a real good entertainment will be given. Three of the members of the dramatic club are staging  that rip-roaring farce, "Bos and Cos,"  Jay-Jay and Bob FitzGerald playing  the male eharactersand Miss B. Mooi-e  will give a very good rendition, of the  author's conception of the double-edged  landlady. Another pleasing innovation  will be the first appearance in town of  the new five-piece orchestra, under the  leadership of Mr. G. B. Northey. The  schoolchildren have been specially  coached for a tableau entitled "Cinderella," by Miss E. Moore. This alone  will be well worth the admission money.  The tableau comprises a series ix  pictures. Mr. B. "FitzGerald will also  appear as a genuine coster character.

In. the estimates of the Revenue and  Expenditure of British Columbia for the  year ending SJst March, .1910, the Ymir  district has been allowed the .sain. of.  $50,000, which allowance is to be devoted to roads, streets, bridges and  wharves in this riding'., Another grant  that has been secured by Mr. Sohofiold,  our member, arc the sums of $500 for a  ferry at Trail and $000 for a ferry at-Ike  Lewis',ion the Kootenay river. A fur-  thor supplementary estimate of $14,000  has boon allowed tho Ymir district under  tho heading of roads, streets, bridges,  aud wharves.

Ltd.  several alterations in the "Fisheries Act  that apply immediately to this district,  and as many of our readers are making  enquiries as to what are the points they  have to take note of, we herewith give  the sections of the act that appeal particularly to the district:  "No trout under eight inches in  length shall be taken in the waters of  British Columbia, and if taken, shall be  returned to the waters alive." ,  "No trout under J three pounds in  weight shall be bought; sold, or exposed for sale in the province of British  Columbia. '3 ''-7  "The taking of trout of all kinds is  |iprohibited from November 15, to lyiaicli  t25th following, :.excepting in the waters  |nf British Columbia, east of parallel 120  \yest longtitude where the. taking of  trout of all kinds from November 15 to  'May- 1st, following, is prohibited."  4 As Creston is located in 115th parallel,  the above new law must be respected  iby.the local anglers. As far as the law  referring to the offering for sale of trout  runder three pounds in weight i? concerned, the act will have the sympathy  Of all good'sportsmen. Whilst ii; is  nice at any time to go to a restaurant  and order a- dish of fresh trout, the pur-"  chasers are apt to lose sight of the fact  that the fish they have ordered has been [  caught by illegal, or, at the best, unsportsmanlike methods. The Government has made a wise law to our way  ot thinking. Personally wckndw that  there have been men who daily fish in  Kootenay Lake to supply the restaurants  and hotels of Nelson, and as these men j  know the habits and haunts of the fish,  they yank them out at their own sweet  wills and thus deplete - the province of  an.sssefe that is now_heing���������,extensiyelx  advertised. Thanks to the law that  has already been set in motion, trout  hasJbeen_a_rare__dish,Levejr in_Nelsqn^  But as regards the lay/ which says that  no trout under eight inches in length  shall be taken in the waters of British  Columbia, we thinhr'that the makers of  that law did not know the first thing  about the subjeot. It must be known  that in nearly all of our mountain lakes  there are species of the trout family  that seldom, if ever grow to the prohibited size. Take Bear Lake and Fish  Lake in the Slocan for instance, and  there are many other lakes of the same  sort, where it is a rarity for the angler  to secure a fish that goes to 0 or 10  inches. They' are a specimen that is  evidently not provided for, yet they aro  of tho gamiest variety that are known  in this province. We know from  close observance that the feed upon tho  banks of these landlocked lakes is very  scarce, and we havo also disoovorod that  tho largo fish feed upon their younger  brethren. Thero is no outlet to larger  lakes for these fish; tho government has  [hot thought that by cleaning out the  creeks the larger lakes would be better:  stocked, and yet they go to work .������J&  prohibit angling in certain small lakes  wherein it is known that the habitants seldom grow to the size required by  the new Act. If the men who make  recommendations to the Dominion gov-  ernment were to get off the main line  of travel once in a while and feel the  pulse's of the people of the inkier Interior  they would learn a great deal more of  the subjects of which they profess profound knowledge.

Jones, representing the Eraser  Biver Nurseries, of liew Westminster,  paid a visit to our town on Monday.  The same day he inspected. many of  the ranches in the district, being greats  ly impressed with the great improvements that have been made in this section. Mr. Oones told our reporter that,  it is the company's intention to instal  a Nursery in one of the Kootenay towns  and one of the principal points considering such an. installation was the  soil. Whilst he was very nou-committal  as to his views concerning the ultimate  selection of a site for the proposed nursery, he smilingly added that Creston  soil was all right.

There was an excellent attendance,'of  members and the general public*   Pres-  has been a misunderstanding with the  Hamilton Powder Co. in reference to  the price and shipment of a car-load of  stumping powder, and this sstter 'was  also debated on. It appears that thecus-  tom is to send direct to the Government  agent at Victoria, for any ponder that  is required by the members of the institute, and tta the government assumes  the position of a wholesaler buying direct from the manufacturer, the appli=  cation for the powder at' tne reduced,  rate should have gone through the office  of th������ Minister of Agriculture. This  was not done, the local institute dealing  direct with the Hamilton Powder Co.  Mr. Jas. Cook, the delegate- to the  Conference, then addressed the meeting  at great length. He began by pointing  tout the difficulties that a delegata to the  convention had to - undergo, and said  that all resolutions had to go before a  resolution committee, and by the time  they emerged the originators of the  motion would not recognise them. He  'gave a very concise and instructive report of all that happened at- she sueefe-  lug, nuuai uio vuuwuuuu iiuo   juwiuv&d  Accorded him a very hearty round of  applause accompanied by a vote of  thanks that went on the minutes.

Vi������vt������ Oakhtok Kviu������ir Monwr,  In connection with the visit of John  McLcod, inspector of Fisheries, here, we  are reminded of an incident ilmfc occurred  in the Lardeau some years ago, and one  in which the editor was the principal  actor.   At the month of  Trout Lake  there are every spring a large number of  landlocked salmon, that come up the  Lardo river from Kootenay lake to spawn  and the early timers used to have great  feeds in those days, as it was a very simple matter to spear the monsters.   One  conld select his own fish as it lay  in  shallow water,, and bring it to shore.  Yo editor tried his hand ot the game,  and.it so happened he landed n 21 pounder jnst as the aforesaid Fisheries Inspector' arrived on tho scone.   We were  very proud to exhibit our prowess at the  art of illegal fishing to this /renfcleman,  and we havo. a distinct recollection of  his stolidity at our remoilcs,   Imagine  the writer's state of mind when h'o discovered who his auditor wos.   Wo folt  liho tho honored thirty cents and then  some.    It appeared that Mr. McLood  had boon sent to Gerrard to onqulro into  tho alleged illegal spearing of fish, and  at this nowe, -which was authentic, wo  folt decidedly happy���������wo don't think.  Lator Mr. MoLcod npproncliod us and  wo had visions of dungeons and broad  arrows.   Judgo of our surprise wlion he  asked ws if wo would niako a present of  the magnificent specimen wo had cap*  turod to tho Covommont, ns It was thoir  dcslro to properly classify tho fish.   Wo  hod no compunction whatever in doing  this, mid wo had tho ploasurn of seeing  tho gift, that was offomvnvds clarified  tho "Siilmo Kootemui," ouofiHt'd in ico  and Hhipped to Victoria.
