The Creston Amateur  Dramatic Club were about to make their  first appearance before the public. The  critic had had the misfortune to witness  amateur performances before, and urged  by a sense of duty he reluctantly submitted himself as the victim of another  dose. But the play had not been going  oa -ten minutes before he was surprised  to find that he was enjoying himself.  It soon became evident to the most skeptical that the Dramatic Olnb had made  a pronounced hit. At 'the end of the  first.aot the enthusiasm was unrestrained  and"the rousing applause must have delighted the hearts of the performers  The play selected, was "The Arabian  Nights,'? a sparkling three-aot comedy  by Sydney Grundy, and the cast was as  follows:  Arthur Hummingtop (very much married)  J. J. Atherton  Balph Ormerod (Hummingtop's friend)  A. T. Pomberton  Joshua OUHbratul (Mrs. GlUlbrond'b Son)  it. O'B. PltjiGorald  Dobson (Hummingtop's Man-Servant.)   W. J. Atherton  ��������� Mrs. Hummingtop (Hummingtop's Wtfo)  Mrs. Darbysljlro  Mra.GlUtbrn.nd (Mrs. Hummingtop's  Mother)....Mru. MoPonk  RoRft Columblor (an acrobatic artist)   ��������� Mvs. R. Kit&ffomld  Daisy Hnttland (Hummliigton's ward) ....  MIrs M. Mooro  .Barbara (Humiulngtop'H servant)    Miss 13. Loamy  When the curtain fell on the last aot,  evoryone who had the pleasure of being  present was convinced that the effort  of the local talent was fully equal to the  professional companies that come our  way. Very much of the success of our  local Thespians was due to their avoidance of all mannerisms. They attempted to do the most difficult thing in the  world of play-actors���������to act naturally���������  and the audience appreciated their welcome endeavors.   '  It is a good omen for the future of  Creston, that everyone in the place ia  not devoted exclusively to material interests but that there is plenty of gaiete  ;de coeur.  It is no secret to say that the ladies in  the cast worked late and early for the  success of the play and that they devised  and made the; elegant costumes they  wore on the stagel Mrs. McPeak, who  won golden opinions with her admirable  portrayal of the domineering mother-  in-law, wore in one act a dressing gown  of Paisley pattern and in the rest of the  play a black dress and becoming cap.  Mrs. Derbyshire who presented the part  of Mrs. Hummingtop, wore in one scene  a black silk tuck net gown and handsome hat, and in other - scenes a black  velvet empire gown' with^ Battenburg  lace bolero and Directoire sash. Mrs.  R. Fitzgerald, whose vivacious presentation of tho "Gutta Percha Girl" left  nothing to be desired, looked very charming in a pale green silk Crepe de Chine  gown and picture hat. Miss M. Moore  as the'winsome young niece] of the Hum -  mingtopa, wore at one time a grey travelling suit and at other times, a white  princess gown aud whito lingerie hat,  trimmed with red roses. MissLeamy as  a maid was very neat aud blooming in a  maid's cap and apron and black dross.  Tho gentlemen also acted their parts  well and showed that they have clever  dramatic taient, which will show up-^n  other more elaborate and more spectacular plays, or even in plays which teach)*,  serious lesson. With brie exception, e&  were excellent.  While the general effect was so good,  candor compels one to admit, that thei-e  was one rift within the lute, one fly in  the ointment. I refer to Mr. JV 3. Ath-  erton's mistaken efforts to shine on the  stage, which made the judicious grieve.  Being limited for space it can only be  said that the orchestra was most excel-  lent. The music provided by Mrs. Ripley and Messrs. Ripley, Darbyshire and  Northey charmed the audience and  I added much to the swing of the play.  Oh! Dramatic Society give us "Charlie's Aunt'' for your next play.  ii  Xlie GetTard Extension  The Kaslo Kootenaian says: From information reaching this office it would  not surprise us in the least to see the>  work commenced this summer on the  O. P. R. extension of the Lardo "branch  line from Gerrard to Arrowhead. "There  are certain things transpiring, especially  the. proposed handling of wheat, which  are receiving close attention from the  traffic department, and we are given to  understand that if the G. P. R. start any  construction work in B.C. this summer,  the first undertaking will "be the completion of the Lardo branch.  iNnnRPflsaTfn  iiiuvii: -jJiini tuw j  Kootenay Evangelistic  Campaign  !  The Canyon City Lumber Company  has been incorporated with a capital of  ������160,000, which igj^ully paid up, and the  company now takes over Lot 812, one of  the choicest tracts of fruit lands to. be  found in the province. The officers of  the Company are D.W. Briggs, Saginaw,  Mioh., president; Jas. Cooper, Saginaw,  Mich., vice-president; and Ohas. O.  Rodgers, Creston, seo.-treasurer. The  company also takes over all the timber  on Lot 812, and also the millsite at San-  shine, near Proctor, B.C.  Of the 8,700.acres of land placed on  the market last "Fall by the company  some 560 have now been taken up by  actual settlers and there is a growing demand for this land that is of great importance. Already the ssttlers are talking of establishing a school, post office,  etc., and many other.progressive moves  are on the tape. The land. is. admirably  adapted for the purposes of which it is  being sold, i.e., frnit culture, and it  would surprise many of our old-timers  were they to visit the new colony and  see the many improvements and happy  homes now established there.  Chas. O. Rodgers still owne the Ores-  ton mill, bnt he will conduct the business  of the.Canyon City Lumber Co. Ltd., at  his Creston offices.  The company is now in an excellent  position to do business with prospective  homseekers. All titles to the land are  now clear and may be seen at the Recording office at Nelson. We look to see  several new families locate oa Lot 812  during the next few weeks.

J. Shearer, Toronto, aTrivod on  Thursday's train.  Creston has this week had the opportunity of hearing one of Canada's fore-  inosrmen, The Rev. Prof. Kilpatrick,  D.D., of Knox College, Toronto, has  joined the Kootenay Evangelistio Campaign and has been in our midst, giving  us a series of quiet, earnest talks on  things that matter.  Last week was spent mostly in preparatory addresses. Easter Sunday saw  a very definite work done. In the mora*  lag a communion service was held and  many in Creston will not easily forget it.  In the afternoon a most delightful service was held with the children. The  schoolhouse was packed with our young  people and rapt attention was given  whilst the doctor told of "The Soldier  of Christ-" his charade? and work In  the evening a mass meeting was held in  the Methodist Church and nearly one  hundred and fifty people gathered, the  place being packed. A bright musical  service preceded the address. Of this  sermon one could not speak sufficiently.  Breathless attention was given whilst  Dr. Kilpatrick preached on "Christ,  whose Son is He ? " He pointed out the  absolute inadequacy of treating Christ  as simply a great Teacher, Master,- King,  or even as tho "Son of Man." Jesus���������  the Son of God���������the revealer of the  Father: the title that included all these  and was vastly more than them all; this  was th������ culminating thought he left us  with. Soma of us have been doing some j the details,  solid thinking since then.  The Doctor continued his addresses on  Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. On  Thursday we had the pleasure of hearing the Rev. J. G. Shearer, D.D., the  well-known leader of the Lord's Day  Alliance Campaign and other social reforms. ���������;-..-������������������ ''.'..  Many interesting visits have been paid  by Dr. Kilpatrick this week. On Thursday he and Dr. Shearer paid a visit to  the school sand addressed -the children.  Early iu the week he visited Watson's  camp, where they are clearing, land.  Much interest wa3 evoked watching the  stump puller at work. Several of the  Creston boys also went ont and all partook of lunch at the camp. The Doctor j  completely won all by his kind, genial;  and social spirit. After lunoh ranch  amusement was created by his consternation on hearing that he had sat within  a couple of feet of one hundred pounds  of stumping powder. Other visits have  been paid to Erickson and the surround^  ing ranches.  Dr. Kilpatrick will remain with" us till  Monday next. He speaks to-night (Friday) in the Methodist Church. Next  Sabbath ho will preach in the: Sohool ot  11 a.m. At 4 p.m. a special men's mooting (men only) will be hold in the Methodist Church. Every man in town is  specially invited to attend. In the oven-  ing a mass meeting wilt again bo hold in  the Methodist Ohuroh ot 7.80, at which  all will be made welcome.  SEWERAGE SYSTEM DISCUSSED-  STRONG OVERTURES MADE  TO THE PROVINCIAL  GOVERNMENT  A meeting of the Oreston Board of  Trade was held on Friday afternoon  last in the Mercantile Hall; there being  a very representative number present.  President Mallandaine ocsnpied the  chair. Secretary Fowler read minutes  of the preceding meeting and also a  number of communications, which were  disposed of.  A matter that brought considerable  discussion was that of a sewerage system. It was pointed out the danger  now prevalent, and it was agreed to  tackle --the matter and approach the Provincial Government with the object of  securing a complete system. A strong  resolution was drafted and forwarded to  J. H. Schofield, M.P.P.  Another resolution was drafted, calling upon the Government to make the  appointment of a stipendiary magistrate for the Ymir, Riding.  An advertising scheme was discussed  at length, and a special committee was  appointed to go thoroughly. into the  matter.  It was also decided to hold a Grand  Ball under the auspices of the assooia*  tion in the very near future, and a  committee was appointed to look after  The members of the Creston Dramatic  Club desire to thank Mr. Coulter-and  Mr. Myers, who so Idndly loaned,the  handsome suite of furniture and other  furnishings  for their recent  perform*  anbe; also Mrs. Hendren for the loan of  a piano.

It seems to us the height of  folly that mail addressed to Creston  should uot be thrown off the train, just  because it is Sunday. Mails for this  point now pass through and are hung up  somewhere, thus causing a day's delay.  If the post office authorities cannot see  their way clear to allowing this town a  Sunday distribution, they can do the  next best thing, that,is, have the mails  thrown off so that the townspaople can  get their delayed mail as soon as the.  post office opens on Monday morning.  To the Editor.  Dear Sir,  Will yon allow me a short space in  which to reply to Mr. Artnur Okell's  letter, of last week?  I wish to state most emphatically that l \  the Kootenay Evangelistic Council have  nothing whatever to do with the publishing   of   this   most   ridiculous and  superstitious chain letter.  All our churches, both Prot������'!taiit <***<^  Roman Catholic,  have done their utmost, for years past, to put- down the  sending out of such tetters; but it is  evident that stray copies still exist.  If Mr. Arthur   Okell would kindly  j acquaint himself, at first hand, with the  "revival craze," he would know that  we have something better to do than to  be publishing such matter.  I remain, dear Sir,  Tours truly, ,.  v/iv������li<a.ii  viUSl  wiUD.  A very amusing story is just to hand  in connection with Sunday's evangelical  campaign at Spokane. It appears that  one of the audience rose to leave the  meeting and Sunday called to him "Hold  on there, friend, an aunt of mine went  to hell by leaving a gospel meeting."  The man looked at the speaker and  quietly replied���������"Have you any message  you would like to send her ?

The Leader is  ono of the brightest local papers in the  province, and Mr. Smyth has made a  niuno among tho members of tho fourth  estate for tho pithiness of his editorial  pars.

It has now been definitely decided to  continue using the old range that was  in commission last season. The committee appointed to locate a site report  it *a difficult matter to secure a 600  yard range, and after again going  over the old site, it was discovered to be  just the distance. There was no fault  to find with the old range, but it was  Mr. F. Putnam's intention to utilize  the ground for agricultural purposes.  He has now very generously granted a  lease to the association until the end of  the forthcoming seaaon.  The necessary alterations for the  new 600 yards range are now being proceeded with, and as soon as the $,000  rounds of ammunition, arrive the season will open.

Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor for the  enjoyment of repose. The early springs are  ve'fiy favorable .lor gardening and ;budding  fruit tree. The autumns are very long  and.the weather is pi an ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild strawberries bloom  as late as November. ,  While there is a splendid local-demand  for products,, the principal markets for the  Creston district are the big centres of the  Crows* .Nest Pass-and all cities'as far east  as Eort William and Chaplean,- and as far-  north as Athabasca Lahding- yfe are-absolutely the closest producing; points to fthe '  markets, therefore we receive higher prices  by reason of our products reaching the markets in shorter time and better in condition  than can be 4one by any other, districts. <  .������:���������* , Creston is well favored in the matter of  transportation. ��������� The  C.

He originally came to take up the res-  pDnsible position of superintendent of  t)he Kootenay Reclamation Co., "^hich  had for its object the  dyking olrthe  overflow of the  Kootenay River.*No  doubt this would have been a success  but for the high water of 1894, which  rose thirteen feet above; the banks of  the Kootenay.    ' Before" leaving Vancouver, EL J. Gamble,::: now. consulting  engineer of the C.P.R.,.., informed Mr.  Little that the Crows' Nest Pass Rail-  'Way wonld be built' down through the  valley.   Fred asked /"-.yviien?"   "Ah,"  came, baok the reply,"*"Iri some futuie  date;"   Mr. Littlo, to tho Review mas,  relates his early experiences as follows:  V.I used my   judgment and ^located  Xpt 525, 160 acres, which now the'. town  of CreBton stands on.   Mr, J. W.Dow  located his iand at tho same time.

" The difficulties we had to contend  with in 1892-3 were numerous, Port  Hill being bur only base of supplies.  Everything had to be packed on our  backs from that town.

The mails-wore packed in  from Bonner's Ferry on a. horse; a dis-  -tance of 33 miles. The few settlers in  those days were extremely gratified  when they learned that a tri-weekly,  mail service had. been established between Bonner's Ferry and Port poll,  but we^ were lucky* owing to the. muri-  erbus difficulties of transportation, if we  secured a mail once a week. Now, such  is the advancement of this district, -that  two.mails, two passenger trains a day,  telegraphic and telephone commumoa-  tian, and. a modern waterworks system  do not apparently suffice. . .<���������:������������������  The Alice mine was located in 1888,  and a trail was made from Port Hill to  the mine. As only assessment work  had been done on the claim, the trail,  not being in constant use, was filled in  with blown down trees and almost impassable.' I asked Capt. FitzStnbbs, then  gold commissioner at Nelson, lor a  grant of $160 to clear oat the trail and  make it passable. " What do yon want  it for?" he asked. "To get provisions  out to my ranch,'' I replied. He  laughed, and said, "Go away, boy, and  leave the land to the Indians. It's of  no other uso." I thought that was a  "good" way to encourage settlers, bo  Jock Dow and I cleared the trail out  J. 1ST. Brooks, C. P.
