It was the object of the  members to raise enough money for tho  purchase of an organ, and a good sum  towards that end was obtained.  The   audience greatly   enjoyed   the  entertainment supplied, and the artistes  are all to be congratulated.    Several of  the numbers were supplied by juveniles,  who acquitted   themselves with great  credit.   Chief among these were aSese&>  Mary Haggerty and Jennie Long, and  Master Willie Long, who gave a~very  pretty skirt'"dance, which- was loudly  applauded and encored.

A- unique cefemony took place last  Saturday afternoon, the first of its kind  vo uo uom xu. v/xuHbun, m tne laying of  the foundation stone of the Presbyterian  Church.  A goodly number of those interested  gathered on the church ground, and at  three o'clock the service opened hy the  singing of the hymn "On Christ .the'  Solid Rock I Stand," Rev. N.,E.. Read,  the paetor, then spoke a few words He  recalled the history of the Church in  Creston. - The Presbyterians were the  first to send a minister iDio Creston. out  were one of the last to build; nevertheless, through all their tips and downs,  and with all their slow pace, they have  made a steady progress and a lasting  TOundatiQn for the work-of tho cinwuli*  Special tribute was paid to the splendid  work of the Rev. Finlay and his co-  operators in having secured the excellent site on which the church is to be  built; also to the unceasing labors of  the Ladies Auxiliary.  The Rev. Prof. Kilpatrick, D.D., then  gave��������� a very appropriate address preparatory to the lading of the stone. He  spoke of the church's past record, its  present work and the aim they should  have for the future. Above all he  reminded us that the real church was  the people. He prayed them to more  deeply, resognize that Christ was the  troe and only natural foundation. On  Him they should unite and in one  purpose work for the coming of the  Kingdom. He then laid the stone, and  in prayer dedicated the future church  to God.  *.������.

The service" was brought to a close by  the singing of tho hymn " The Church's  One Foundation."  '  Owing to this service having been  somewhat hurriedly arranged the church  was unable to procure a suitable stone,  but Messrs. Hendren and Brown were  able to make a good substitute in a con-  orate block.      ^  Under the stone was deposited a sealer  containing the church's record of officers  and ladies auxiliary, a copy of tho local  newspaper andburrent stamps.  At the ���������close of the ceremony^'Mr.  Downey photographed the group, after  wbioh the ladies spent the remainder of  che time inspecting the "manse" and  grounds.  Quadrille Club Ball  The last dance of the season of the  Acme Quadrille Club was a decided  succesB, a large crowd of dancers and  sightseers of both sexeB turning out to  have a good time. The floor of tho  Opera House had been specially prepared, and the music as supplied by  Mrs. O. P. Riel and Mr. G. R. Kbrthey  was <grea������1y appreciated. Mr. A.  Baker made an excsllent floor manager  being assisted by Messrs J. C. Stephens  and Rudell McPeak. Dancing was  kept ap until 8.80 Saturday morning.  A word of thanks is due to the ladies  who prepared all the good things for  the supper.  rf?������������Ifg������   8 MUNICH  USlflllSL.ll  nnniTrn  UIII1I1 I L.IL?  a   S.

T'HH ORH-S/TON REV^W  /  ���������^ C^7���������  1  !  Now that the Lands and Works- De-*  partment are seriously considering the  project of reclaiming the Kootenay Flats,'  we would earnestly urge upon them the  necessity of securing the highest expert  opinion to be obtained before commencing upon so expensive an undertaking.  We do not suggest that any grafting or  boodling between office seekers and the  owners that be is likely to take placo,  but we in the Oreston valley do sincerely  hope that the Government will not hand  ont the engineering job io any civil engineer just because he has been a good  fiiend to the parsy. There is too' much  at otake for this section of, the Kootenpys  f >r any chances to be taken, - and this  project is too big a ono for anj engineer  with a limited knowledge of hydraulics  to tackle. It requires -jrithoufi doubt,  the brains of ,a, clever man to "accomplish this reclamation, and we advocate'  that the bestknownman be secured, irrespective of pull or politics. It would bo  disastrous if failure is to be the end of ic  all.       ....        . "   ,  Rain, beautiful rain has arrived, and  the hearts of'the ranchers are fillfd with  joy.
