Rifle Association.  A general meeting of the Civilian  Rifle Association was held on Friday  evening last, when it was decided to  commence a series of bi-monthly  " spoon shoots " at once. It was arranged that these competitions will be  held as follows. On the first Saturday  and Sunday of each month the members  will shoot over the 200 and 300 yards  range, and on the'second Saturday aud  Sunday 500 and 600. The following two  Sundays the program will be repeated-  The highest score will take the bimonthly spoon. The club has afiilia.ed  with the B. O. Interior Rifle Association  and a team will be sent from-Creston  to compete for some of tbe prizes at the  annual meet, for which about 81,000 is  offered in prizes. The weekly shoots  are marked by the good attendance of  the laembeiB, and-many good shots have  discovered themselves, New members  are earnestly solicited, as -i* is the aim  to eend a team to "Nelson that will be a  credit to our town. Particulars may  be obtained' fron any of the following  members oi the committee:* G. Cart-  wsight, J. Stocks, A. S. FitzGorald,  R. O'B. FitzGerald, and J. H, Hyde.  Any member who finds it inconvenient to shoot on the regular days of  competition may attend the range at  hi a own time under certain conditions  whioh may be obtained from the committee.  runs  worse, so  t&ey are.

W. Bennett, representing the International Correspondence School/Scran-  ton, Pa., was a visitor to our town this  week. Mr. Bennett has charge of the  East Kootenay district, and he is making  it his business to stop off at every place  of importance along the "Crow." We  requested him to furnish us with some  impressions of the progress,or otherwise  of his territory, and his/ remarks will  undoubtedly be read with interest:  "Yes, yes, times are rather quiet, 'tis  true, but there is no reason why anyone  should get an attack of the 'blues' in  consequence; on the contrary, prospects  of general activity are noticeable everywhere. '  ���������'Backward spring, did you re-aark ?  Th������ivs s. fact, but is bTr no means limited  to any one seotion of the country but is  common to the whole continent.  "Misery may love company, still there  is every* reason to believe that once the  dispate between the mine operators and  the miners has been satisfactorily adjusted, there will immediately follow an era  of business prosperity that will be as  welcome as it is certain,  "At Pinchor Creok the conversation is  largely of an agricultural character;  'spring plowing,' 'manure spreading,'  etc., are topics of daily converse. Still,  interspersed with these, oil, ooal and  railroads are mentioned.   Among those  tho logs, totalling between 4,000,000 and  5,000,000 feot, will bo picked up by Saturday. They will bo takon over to Koo-  lonay Landing, and thero taken over  tho Great Northern to Bonner's Ferry.���������  Nelson News.

Some of the merchanis, who in the early  spring were seriously contemplating  moving to more remunerative localities,  have been forced to recognize the fact  that they might go farther and fare  have decided to Btay where  This is one of the mining  companies which. y*ith the Crows' Nest  Pass Coal Co., withdrew from the operators' association asd made an agreement with its employees.  "At Lille, which is six miles north of  Frank, practically all is at a standstill,  only sufficient coal being mined to keep  the Belgian coke ovens in operation.  "Blairmore is on the eve of a period  of development, which means much to  the investing pulic. The mammoth cement works ore being pushed to completion as speedily as possible, and ere  long Blairmore cement will become a  household word.  '.'A splendid seam of coal is being exploited-under the supervision of Mr.  Chas/Chestnutt, a thoroughly practical  and experienced mining man.  "Coleman is quiet and necessarily so,  because the mines of the International  Coal & Coke Co. are not in oparation,  being affected by the labor trouble. The  McGillivray Ccal &> Coke Co., whose  property is located about tbree miles  from town, is.pushing developments forward as rapidly as possible. F.O Green)  of Cleveland, Ohio, is the engineer in  charge of construction.  " "Many of the foreign miners have  taken advantage of the cessation of work  to pay a visit to the homeland, whilst  QXjhg3>B, both British and foreign, are  busily occupied as amateur carpenters  and builders, constructing homes for  themselves. Quite a number too, are  utilizing the e-iforced holiday to attend  to homesteading duties on the prairie.  "At MoGiliivray the station at the  Loop is the junetion point of the new  railroad called the "Eastern British Columbia," whose present terminal point,  thirteen miles sonth," is Corbin, where  the coal properties opened up by Corbin  Bros., of Spokane, are located. The  survey for the extension of the road, on  through the Flathead, into the U.S.,  tapping t the State of Minnesota, is at  present inprouress.  "Six miles we*t of McGillivray, tho  first of the camps operated by tho O. N.  P. Coal Co., is reaohed���������-Michel. This  is undor the superintendence ot Mr, Norman Fraeer, until recently Government  Minos Inspeotor for theprovinoo of Al-  bin-tit. Coal n-iuing and coke making  are in full swing at this point. To mon-  tion'Miohol without referring to Newtown would bo vciy discourteous, so will  remark that Inns-amok as the O. N. P.  Coal Co. has a monoply upon everything  in the old town, as there was some government land about 1% miles west of the  i  O. P.'R. station, it was opened op, rapidly disposed of, and iB being developed  with no uncertain gait. Hotels, dry,  hardware and other stores, in fact, all  the concomitants of an enterprising  town are in evidence. The O. P. R. has  deemed it of soiBcienfc importance to  make a halt, and intends building a sta-  tion shortly. ' Newtown ��������� is the present  terminus of the Great Northern, and,  judging by the yard facilities, the 'Jim  Hill' road evidently anticipates considerable growth.  "Hoemer is the next station. Here  the Hosmer mines are located (property  of the C. P.R.), but this place, like  others already mentioned,^ is &t present  very dormant, and although long rows  tore garden plot is being laid oat..'       ?  "Moyie is the Issi town of ������mpa**1au!OQ.  before reaching Creston, and I may say  that probably mesa baildiaga have been  erected during the past three months  than during any three -months in the  town's history. The coa-Mawed success  of ���������tno Consolidated properties, together  with Hie splendid prospects far the future as .development progresses in. the  nearby properties, 'The Aurora' and  ,' Society Girl,' are esta*blishixig in the  minds of many the idea of permanency  in this wonderful lead prodnfiiag locality.  "What do I think of Orestoa ? iNtaw,  here's where I leave that for yon to' dK  late apon, assuring you that it ifl in  capable hands. Do I notice any sxowth ?  Wiry, my dear Jay-Jay, a snas blind in  one eye and a huge cataract in tho cihs*?  stacks rear their heads heavenward,  there ia neither black fumes nor vapor  in the air. This leaves the atmosphere  pure and unadulterated, hut from a  commercial view point, leaves much to  be desired,  "Fernie! Yes, it certainly speaks well  for the spirit of the people to ��������� see the  tremendous strides that have been accomplished since the disastrous August  1st, and as yon come into^the station a  magnificent brick building, fast approaching completion, attracts one's  attention. This is the new school building of which Fernie citizens will have  every reason to be proud, and particularly those who have children will rejoice when it ie  formally opened and  of coke ovens are visible and huge smoke conld aot feil to note  th������ seisss'kafeSa  developments and stupendous growth.  The very fact' that yon have a newspaper  man who will soon be in the fat hoy's  brigade, speaks volumes, and Mendelssohn's 'Songs without wards' ore only  ditties compared to that which your  sleek and ' comfy * appearance .bespeak  for the city- of Crssfcon. Tra-la old man,  I see that yon; pencil is ueglozdog So  wiggle, so* 28.'"  As showing the advance that has been  made in commerce in the interior of  British Columbia we mention that several banks are about to open branches. -  At Moyie a branch of the Imperial bank  is to be installed and the camo eampsny-  axe constructing a substantial stone and'.  education, which has been of somewhat | brick building at Fernie.   A branch of  desultory character since the recent fire,  will be once again on a normal basis.  The proprietors of business houses,  when asked about the state of affairs,  invariably reply: 'very fair; of coarse  we could do more, but there is a decided  improvement now that the operation of  the mines is assured for two years more.'

Callr c&gam  Dr. J. Heavener, a recent visitor from  the Hood River fruit country, has on  behalf of a syndicate of fruit farmers,  been investigating the Creston district.  "We understand that Dr. Heavener has  been commissioned to report on bur climate,   transportation  facilities, water,  soil, etc., and for this end\ he recently  visited many of our prominent ranchers  and ctlso inspected much of the unimproved land of the district.  To a representative of the Review he  -said that he had visited all the principal  fruit growing centres of B.O., but that  Henceforth there should be no more  complaints for divorce on the grounds  that a husband snores and deprives���������a  wife of needful sleep. A Seattle woman  has invented a snore silencer which is  on exhibition at the Alaska-Yukon Exposition.  The possibilities of the invention are  immense. Most of us would be willing  to submit to an increased charge for a  sleeping car berth if we were insured  against ripping snorts of sleeping fellow  passengers.

He  therefore deoided to return home and  higher  command a mgner rental if a snore-  silencer were supplied and adjusted to  each guest.  Without sleep there is no joy in this  life.

Mr. Coulter has two large dry  goods stores there, and he will likely  accept an oiler for them. During his  absence the^Oreston business will be well  looked after by Mr. G. M.

Climate  xTfoarfcets  .>  The climate of the Creston district is so  mild in winter that seldom does the mercury-  touch zero, and in summer the weather is  very warm which is so beneficial for the cultivation and coloring of fruit. Cool evenings, however, are-a persistent factor for the  enjoyment of repose.. The early springs are  vey favo able fo gid e ning and budding  fruit trees. The autumns are very long  and the weather is of an ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild^ strawberries bloom  as late as November.  Soil  i  The soil is an alluvial clay on a clay subsoil. This does not apply, howeve������, '^o the  entire, valley, as thelower bench lands are of  a black^re while the land in  the yicijuity of Erickson is of a sandy character. Four-fifths of the entire* valley"* is  free from stones and gravel. The laixd is  practically level and mostly covered with  timber.

Thi.s Is an industry which lasts oniy two  months, but employs about twenty-five  stout steamers and 4,u00 men, whose  home is the -rock-ribbed coast of Newfoundland. This seal hunt litis been proij-  oeutod for hundreds \>f years, it yield.?  u harvest of from $f>0l),O0O to $7o0..000  annually, and like the codfish iu tlie  same Maters the sealyhas defied all at-  tc nip is at 'extermination. This is all the  more 'remarkable when we find that today the. famous Bering seal- fishery is  now reduced to a mere skeleton of its  former importance. s  A Newfoundlander takes no small  pride in this sealing vei,t.nre. and iiis  views with regard .'to it are illustrated  by the story of the "'scaling skipper, who  hearing once of the appointment of a,  prominent lawyer to the judicial'bench  declared that **it'was an outrage to give  such a fine job to a'man who had never  brought a trip . of seals. into the. country." The seal folk Ior some reason describe their prey as "swoils," and in ybhe  same fashion, to ''spell'' an object means  to carry it; hence we can imagine the  amazement of the young cleric, who on  one occasion asked a burly hunter how  he spelt "swoils," and was answered:  "VYe don't erieU 'em, we hauls 'em."  Of the natural history of the hair seal  or "'ice riding pinniped," as scientists  describe it, little is known. All that is  certain respecting their habits and  movements is that they appear on the  coast of Labrador in the early winter  and drift south on the ice floes, where  their young are whelped on the naked  crystal plains. They are born about  the end of February and are suckled  there by their mothers, the father keeping guard daily while she dives into  the sea in search of food. The herds  a re absolutely' countless ih number. On  occasion as uuuiy as 200,000 have been  scoii in a single "patch," and yet caeh  mother will return: at nightfall to her  own infant and find tjhe particular hole  in the ice by which she went down, even,  though the "floe has shifted many miles  and changed its position entirely. The  young seals are termed "white coats,''  bc-iiig fat, downy, pallid little masses of  blubber, with voracious appetites, growing with such amazing rapidity that  within a fortnight their pelt with fat  attached .'weighs from forty to fifty  pbunds. It is at this time that the seal  hunt begins..  A century ago it was prosecuted in  small boats'-: by-means "of nets set atong  the coast, then larger smacks were employed and went further afield among  the' floes. Later stout schooners were:  bnilt.and then square .rigged vessels,and  fifty years ago a fleet of 400 sails put  out'from the vurlbus ports of Newfound-  laud in quest of tlie greasy spoil. In 1S31  as many as 374,000 seals were brought  iu, while in 1864 the ;smallest catch on  record was caught, 121,000.  The  modern  era in  the  seal  fishery  den then. A few years ago a sealing  skipper's log of an unusually interesting voyage was published on his return  to St. John's, when this naive confession was exposed: \  Sunday, March 2S.~-This being the  Lord's day, aio seals were taken. * Crew  busy hoisting seals aboard aud shifting  coal in the bunkers.  One of the peculiarities of the industry  is the fact that so many thousands) of  seals bcing:. killed every day and left on  pans until tlio ship can reach them there  is an irresistible  temptation to appropriate these under cover of night, nnd in  Newfoundland    there  are -two    current  phraso3 to which    the peculiarity  haa .  given    rise.      The "sealing liar",;is the .  .gossip who gets busy shortly after they  fleet sails with stories of steamers being  reported,  and    the     "sealing   swearer/'  supplies    glib    but  unconvincing   fccsti-  ���������jnony -hi- the cross^ suits  which    follow  every sea son's fishery.  Some yeai*s,. ago ���������'-���������  a'victorious���������>'skipper, in one ; of ythosts  actions, apostrophized his gallant Bhip's  company thus: "I thank , ye, men;, ye  swore noble!" \ }.;-      .y-.y!  it. is scarcely an exaggeration to say  that, very little reliance is given by New-  foniidliuid , juries to the tcstinionj*,. ad-  . diii'-cd "in scaling casejs, and in one of -'the'  mo.'t recent actions, wherein some, thou-,  suites of seals ..were sued for, the,Verdict  was for tWdpelts, valued at .%% as they  alone could lie positively and indispnt-  ably identified. ,:;'. :���������/,'-      ���������'���������  This is an industry where men. walk  in daily and hourly danger of;,.death.-.-,  Within the last two years five ships were. /'.-  lost, the Leopard was driven ashore and  1-20 men'narrowly "escaped-death';'''-'the  Greenland brcSccJ her shaft and was carried seaward, her crew being resetted in  the last extremity-, -the Grand '-Lake; was  crushed and went down, her crew being  thirty-six: hours on the floe before rescue  earned the Panther and the Walrus had  a similar experience.

The  introduction of steam marked the .down-;  fall of the sail, and to-day,there is not  a sailing vessel remaining at the work.  The whole enterprise has been monopolized by a small steam fleet sailiug from  St. John's, and only 4,000 men arc taken  on board these.  "Until three years ago it was thought  that a steel ship waa unsuitable for this  work. It is a seeming patadox that iron  should bo less strong than wood for ice  navigation. However, an enterprising  and far seeing St. Jbhn's ship owner resolved upon the construction of a specially designed steel steamer for the  sealing business and which should also  1 bo. available as a cargo carrier during  tho rest of the year. This was tho chief  drawback of the old ntyln scaler, which  was a twin sister of the Arctic whaler  and indcod'Sometimes used for that busi-  ni'KS.

"I don't know how you follows size  up Jim Jeffries' attitude regarding a  match with .the big coon champion,  Johnson,1" said the oldr New York  sporting man to a reporter the other  evening, "but 1 think Jeff is a wise  guy all right for not taking a chance  while' out of condition.

He liud  gone into thu ring so citcn v.

He simply laid oi������ there aud guzzled bottle  alter bottle of ale right undo-, the  note of ' his patient trainer, Phil  Casey, tlie handball champion. When  "Sullivan's, closest friends suggested a  little real  training  be ������at back and  f declared that Corbett was such a pipe-  that he didn't have to be" in first-class  form to win in a few punches. The  night before he left here for New Orleans 1 asked Sullivan how long ho  expected the fight would dast.  SULLIVAN'S SILLY BOAST.  " 'Oh, it may go eight rounds, but  no further,' replied John, who looked  the picture of confidence. He was lying in bed in a room over 'Casey*-*  hand ball court over in Brooklyn at  the time, and I looked him over care-,  fully. He was as fat as a prize ox  and as slow as molasses. He had a  pronounced paunch and was in no  shape to fight a boy. It dawned on  one then that John was up against it,  and I told him then and there' that  lie was making- ai mistake in taking  chances with such a young, clever  boxer as Corbett. John didn't like  my remarks one bit and, getting out  of bed, he offered io show any man iu  the room whether he could fight or  ��������� not. Of course, nobody accepted, but  Charley Johnston, his backer, said to  him:  " 'John, you may fool ihe American  public, but you can't fool me! You're  not fit.'  "Sullivan, who had much respect  for Johnston, only laughed and replied :  "���������There's no fear. Charlie, I'll win  in a walk/     o ,   ,  Still in his'fat condition, we .-ill  thought that Sullivan could win, as  he had done so many times before  under similar adverse "conditions. We  all know tbe result nf the mill. Sullivan was too heavy and slow to get  out of his own way. He never landed a solid blow in tlie 21 rounds. He  - became so tired than he couldn't hold  up his arms in defence and finally  went down in sections, Corbett continually raining blows on his jaws and  bodyi Finally tho big brewery liorFO  dropped all in a heap, completely  exhausted, but practically uninjured.  As soon aa he was counted out he got  up slowly and made a speech to' tho  , immense'-crowd at the 'ringside���������an  unusual thitfg for a defeated elmni-  pion to do.  WHAT JEFF KNOWS.

CORBETT "MARKS THE jnBTAKE.  '���������Even Corbett made, llicrmistake of  remaining out of the ring too long!  What a splendid fight lie put u������ against  Jeffries at Coney Island in lt)00! He  danced around the boilcsnnker for 5*3  rounds, jabbing him hole and there almost at will. Meanwhile Jeff kept  using a round arm left swing (>7 times,  accozding to tny account, until he  caught Jim on the jaw with the *-i"*"!y-  eiglith blow of this kind and scored r  clean knockout. If Corbett could have  stayed thoso last two rounds, Jlererco  Siici* would Iia\e had to hand over the  championship to (ioibelt. Or if the nt-  fair had boon a, 20-round go instead ot  one of 20, Jeff would,surely have lost  his title. After tliis clever performance-Corbett waited three years before  he tackled Jeffries for the second time  in "Frisco in 1903. By thib time Jeft  had improved wonderfully, while Corbett had been dropping back, with the  resulc that it took Jeff ten "rounds to  pufc  the ex-bank clerk away.  "I saw Joe Gor"s b^ck in iSFG put  up a grand battle ag.iin^t Tom Allen  in Kentucky under London mles.    The.  ���������M'Kfc    t  @8FS  time I eaw Co^s fight vas with  Paddy Ryan at Collier Station, \V. "Va.,  in 18S0. What a change had come over  Goss! He was old and fat and slow. All  his cleverness had loft him, although at  that he gave Ryan a good punching.  Old Joe's wind finally gave out attcr  he had battled for one hour and 27 minute.--, and Arthur Chambers threw up  the sponge. Ilyan was really the biggest  dub 1 ever <-aw a-j a champion. lie  couldn't fight a little bi.t, and beat Go-ss  simply by youth ami endurance.  "When Hecnan whipped Saycrs m  England in 1SC0 lie was the ideal heavyweight. But like so many others, Hecnan laid off for three years without a  fight until he met Tom King, who beat  him easily. Heenait was simply a has  been and he knew enough to quit.  ''Tom yharkey fought Gus lluhlm the  la-st time in 1902 at Coney Island. Two  yoars after that ho met Jack Munroc, a  tltird rater, in Philadelphia, and Miuiroe  put it -'������U over the sailor in a ,-dx-rotmd  bout. Sharkey had gone back so tar m  those two short years that he was simply a joke. Jte must have thought so  himself, for Sharkey has not been in  .the ring since. In 1(104 Bob Fitzaim-  mons stood the clever Jack O'Brien otf  for sit rounds. Three years later Fitz,  who had been out of tho ring-, took a  crack at Jack Johnson and \ya.-- stopped  in two round*. Bob -was only a baby in  the big coon's hands, yet if they had  niel four years, earlier Johnson would  have been slugged down and out in jig  time.  "'Look at'Marvin Hart. , There was a  fighter, according to Jeffrie's, who should  havo boon the hitter's pucccssor. When  'Hart got a decision over Jack Jolnwon  afc 'Frisco in 1005 Jeff picked him out  as Che coming champion. But Hart took  Mich -long rests between lights that he  gradually lost his form and finally fell  , before the lemon, Mike Schrek, in 21  pounds, at Tonopah in 1907.
