The rain forced the ladies of  the Presbyterian church to hold  their lawn social in the basement  . of. the  church. yesterday afternoon and evening.  The many friends of Schoolmaster McDonald are pleased to  see him back from the hospital,  after several weeks of illness  from typhoid-phneumonia.  Dr. Keith is building an extensive addition to his Cliff-street  home, including kitchen, bath,  pantry, and office. All are to be  fitted, up with modern conveniences.  E. Robertson, nephew of Jas.  Johnson, is building a cottage on  Regent street, between George  and Sicamous. J. S.. Johnstone  laid the concrete foundation last  week.  Miss Vera Corbould and Mr,  Nigel O'Brien will contribute the  vocal numbers at a piano recital  which will be given by Miss Clute  at Mrs. Pearson's studio, New  Westminster, this evening.  E.

The city does  not own a city hall site. The city "never  has voted money to buy a city hall site, nor  any"iDthier=Biter^W"hat=thie=city������������������x)lds^is^anJ  80-foot corner lot, bought three years ago  for $800. But the $800 was not public  funds, nor funds raised for the purpose to  which they were put. The money put into  that lot was taken from the sinking fund  of the waterworks debentures, of which the  city is simply the custodian. The money  was put into this lot as an investment, arid  it was a safe investment, but some day the  city must pay back into the fund the amount  of the purchase price, with accrued interest.  So, in reality, tne city has# not paid the  money for the property and is only nominal  owner. If the money to buy the property  outright is not voted at this time, it will  have to be voted at a later date.  ENDERBY'S pound by-law and dog tax  have caused more thunder and dire  threats, and less execution, than any  law on the corporation, books. The only  clause in the pound by-law that made it  operative was the clause fixing a sum to be  paid to the. person impounding the animal.  While this .clause was in operation the bylaw worked well, then a cow of the wrong  faith was run in, and the clause was repealed. Since then the by-law has been a  farce. The city will not pay a man or boy  to round up the rumaging bell ringers, and  nobody his been found who will do the  work for nothing. Early in the season the  city fathers issued a manifesto which the  cows couldn't read and the owners wouldn't.  It told how. stringently the pound by-law  was to be enforced.. Cobdssy looked at it,-  winked her critical eye" and kept,right on  . munching.,^ The newly.. appointed pound-  deeper hasn't had1 a case of bovine simplicity before him yet. They roam the  streets ,at night and are herded in the day  time. A return of the clause that was revoked would give the law some efficiency.  NEVER in the history of journalism in  British Columbia did a weekly paper  jump into popular. favor as quickly  and as completely as did the Saturday Sunset, of Vancouver. The paper has just entered upon its third year of publication.  It has been a success from- the start. . The  request has been frequently made, Bruce  says, that the Saturday Sunset be turned  jnto_a_daily,...but,,the.men owningthe.paper  are wiser than. their over-zealous friends.  They know the best features of their paper  would be lost, its influence destroyed, its  distinctiveness knocked into a cocked hat,  and their fat bank aceount turned into an  overdraft if. they were to make the change.  It is a distinct gain to journalism for the  Saturday Sunset to _ continue ���������������������������_ in ..the good  old way. Bruce may not be all right all of  the time, he may not be all right some of  the time, but he's some right most of the  time and decidedly human all of the  time, and we lof 'im 'cause he is.  GEORGE ARMSTRONG is doing a  good thing for Salmon Arm, though, I  . have no doubt, some of the moss-  backs think he is a bad one. > If the coun-  cilmen of our sister "municipality would  read, and make an effort to digest, the  leading editorial in last week's Observer,  it would do them as much good as a dose of  Epsoms.   But they wont.  f������������������T THINK if I worked for a man I would  work for him.   I would not work for  i  him a part of the. time, and the rest  of the time work against him. I would  give him an undivided service or none. If  you must vilify, condemn and eternally disparage, why, resign your position, and when  you are outside, damn to your heart's content. But, I pray you, so long as you are  a part of an'institution, do not condemn  it."���������������������������Elbert Hubbard.  Kelowna Presbyterians propose  to build a $22,000 church, and the  Enderby Methodists are talking  of a $6,000 church on the lot adjoining the one they now have.  Princeton now has a Masonic  Lodged The Hedley' Gazette,  telling, of the . institution of. the  lodge, on the 4th inst., tells;of  W. Bro. Pyman occupying the  chair at.the usual banquet given  oh such occasions.  The body of Wm. Bradley, was  found, last Sunday lying near his  cabin on Six-Mile creek by James  Moir. When found the body was  lying near the shack and the ad-  vanced state of decomposition it  was in.showed'that it' must have ���������������������������  been.lying there .several "weeks.  ���������������������������Vernon Okanagan.  The rArmstrong Celebration  committee, has ..made excellent-,  train arrangements for Dominion  Day. The .Revelstoke :t special.  will, pick up .the early. Enderby  crowd at 8o'clock, and the regular' south-bound .will .leave* two  hours later. Returning, the regular north-bound train will leave  Armstrong at 5:30 p. m., and the  special at 11 p. m.  The Mabel Lake road boys had  a surprise given them last Friday  evening, when Walby Huppel, of  acrobatic fame, gave a splendid  exhibition;. At the close of his  performance he gave, some .very  m^h-appreciated^selections^^r"  the' gramophone, 'including some  waltzes, in the dancing of which  Miss Ruth Baxter was the star of  the evening. Three hearty cheers  were given by the boys, concluding with "For he'3 a jolly good  fellow."  Once more the home of Mayor  Bell has been made the scene of  a pretty wedding. This time it  was the marriage of Miss Nellie  Heath to Mr. Grant Towler, the  happy event taking place last  Saturday evening, Rev. Mr. Gifford officiating. Mrs. Bell acted  as hostess, and little Edith Matthews and Evelyn Bell were the  bridesmaids. Mr. Towler is a  young man of sterling qualities,  and his bride has won the esteem  of all. They have been residents  of Enderby about a year. They  came from England, crossing the  Atlantic with the Salvation Army  refugees. Miss Heath quickly  found employment in Mayor Bell's  home, while Mr. Towler went to  work' in the blacksmith shop of  the A. R. Rogers Lumber Co.  Mr. Towler has purchased a lot  in the Barnes addition, and will  build. In the meantime they are  renting the Points' place, north  of town. ���������������������������*���������������������������'��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� 1  till  Ire  THE   ENDEEBY   PRESS   AMD   WALKEB'S   WEEKLY.

AH (Iiis is in marked contrast with  what used to happen a short generation  ?.go. Canada, asked the United States  f<>r reciprocity similar lo that which  not a hied from 1S5_ to 1S.G.

Since  thev. liU \i-iis h< :e have, not been infrc-  e^ient. and each time hi. offering has  been of .LMT-au-r importance. The three  principal  \\-iuiu-e_   uf  Dr.  Kavriss  best  known to Hamilton are the. cycle ��������������������������� of  niu-ical festivals iu li'OU, the lecturing  tour of Sir Eroderick Lridge last year,  and the Sheffield Musical Union concerns  a few month, ago. So far as IIujnil. mi  was eoneerued, there was little or no  need for the first two. from a etriotiy  I edtu-atiomtl siandpoint, as the city vr.us  ! not at all in the musical backwoods in  either choral or choir work; but as loyal  ] -ilishei . anxious to aid Dr. Harriss in  a very laudable enterprise, Hamilton, ou  each occasion Avill'ingly became a link iu  the musical chain so cleverly forged  across the Dominion, and was the bettor  for what; was accomplished. The Sheffield choir was a.n education and an incentive, and it is to be hoped Dr. Harriss  will not weary iu welldoing i _ this advanced form of musical movement.  The matters referred to give a poor  idea of Dr. .Harriss' busy life. From his  1>en have come songs, choral works,  masses, cantatas and other compositions';  a.s an organist he ha_. given many recital'.: as a conductor he has oft _u held  the.baton in London -.Mid Canada-. Next  cummer he will be the gucst-conduclor  of the musical festivals at Cape '.ovrn,  South Africa. All this, even, does not  exhaust the list of Dr. Harriss' labors���������������������������  iher are too many lo be enumerated  here.  It wa=, indrodiwoll that-O. A. K. Harris.-, came, to Canada.

The public has of.,late had so mueli  clisciis.-ion of airship warfare that it may  not be without- interest to readers to  learn something about thc "ruou.ti .s oi'  the air," as ihe sensation-mongers love  io style the mammoth balloons and other  forms of aerial vessels. Toward Gonnany  thi .0 days al. eyes are turned, aud some  attention may be given to the products  of her airship inventor.,'for whom sucli  great claims have Keen made.  The Gorman airships arc of three  types, rigid, semi-rigid and non-rigid.  Thc first is the Zeppelin machine; the  second the militaiy, and .the third, the  Parstval balloon. The, Zeppelin ship-has  had a variety of failures, and. successes,  and has been accepted by the Gorman  .0uvos .lmeut, Its speed is o-timated at  twenty-eight miles au hour: it ir, dirigible; but a strong wind may easily take  if far out of its couiso, preventing it  from, ever again reaching its bate.  Thc 1'aiscviil . 'mi-rigid balloon has  rilr-o been accepted by tlie German War  Department. It has made a (rip of eleven  and a hah" hour.-; has risen by its own  motors to 1..000 meters (.;..:.. 1 i'eet), and  then by tluowing out .3-t lbs. o������������������ ball .&'.  has risen 1,00:3 ieet more and re-mained  at that altitude for au hour, it was  inflated and raised, when officially tested, iu four and a hah' hours, and attained a speed of  .0.1!- miles aud hour.  The military type, represented by  Major Gi _.-*���������������������������.'' balloon, has a record of  twelve and a half hour? in thc air, but  it has also a record of many di.asle.s,.  aud is hardly to be compared to the i'������������������������������������  H-vaJ or Zeppelin, air.-hips. it U slow to  answer its helm and lacks speed.  Then there is the l'rili balloon, from  .whioh__much is expected. Its framcwjrk  is  of   steel   iiistoad^^nifihiau-n^aT.L  weighs 7,700 lbs. its iuveutor claims fu.it.  it- could carry���������������������������with certain trifling  "ii."���������������������������-a load of oO.f-OO lbs.

It For-nis that- thc,-balloon'!,  best defence b> its .-peed.

The German VT&r Department requires the 1'arscval ship io  rise to 1,500 meters, assuming tliat to  bo the limit of effective gun fi>:. The  modern infantry rifle can fire to a  height of about 7.000 feet, while the  field gun, with buried trail, c_n reach  up to 10.500 feet, but of course E_ both  eases the balloon must be within ;���������������������������,ct\ial  range to be hit. Gunma.kerB are _iiow  working on weapons of high clcv&tioa.-.  mounted ou auto cars for attacking balloons. Various projectiles arc also bcinjj  tested for airship de.-truc-tion.

ICIDE BY LAW.  (The Economic\s Society.)  A little more than a, year ago wo  drew attention to this subject. ' Tlie  text was then drawn from the spoliation of thoso enterprising" persons in  nnd out of Canada, who, resting belief  or, public faith and legislative honesty,  dariugly' invested many millions in tbe  comparatively new project of hydroelectric power development and transmission. That what we then said might  l������������������c expected has really occurred and is  now history. Capital lias become chary  of investments in Ontario. The murder  of those who had invested had proved  to be a very real form of provincial suicide.  fo that to-day a text .nay be taken  from the Ottawa Citizen of the olh iu-  . ta.'it���������������������������than which the Ontario Government has no stauiicher supporter. It is  a. follows:  '"'There arc several people in Cauada  who think ifc i3 not iu the interest of  thhs Dominion that our Government  should get busy incorporating companies for Brav.il, Alcxico and Timbucfoo  in order to entice Canadian capital  a why from home. The mere existence  of those companies wilh their largs list  of Canadian shareholders is a backhanded advertisement for the opportunities for the investment of foreign  capital in Canada. Tho shrewd British  investor, for instance.

It is haruiy necessary to preach any  ..-inon .from this text., for it is text  and sermon in one.  Capital naturally goi_> whore it conceive, it can do bent, and has surely  -tlie right to do so. Jt would indeed be  iu keeping for a legislature that has by  iti legislation destroyed confidence in a  province, and consequently driven the  people of that j .oviuee Lo *_ek abroad  Mich Facurity of inve.-fiiioiits a:s they  have boon deprived of at home to try  fo fn:mo oilier legislation to compel  thorn to invest in the midst of the insecurity ifc has created. This would be  comic opera staged on a tragic plat-  lot m with a vengeance.

Here   it   is   now,  perched above or.r chamber door, disturbing, uncoim.rting-. snaking sad  with its constant refrain. Let us hope,  that by and by, perhaps after some expiatory suffering to punish us for provincial 'legislative folly, our cars may  be cheered and comforted by a final  refrain, "Nevermore: Stiicide bv Law."

But the most the Premier would say was that we  should not crowd such a  building into a small corner.  Enderby, he said, . s a town  well located, and shouldnot  spoil its beauty by crowding.  We should build on a site  which would ensure plenty  of breathing room about the  inkling. This is not all  we hacf hoped the Premier  would say, but it is all he  could be expected.' to say, in  view of the" government not  having yet decided'; to enter,  'iiito partnership with the  , city.  Premier McBride is shrewd  .li  as wen  not reject  courteous. He did  the city's proposition,'nor did he show any  eagerness to'��������������������������� accept it. He  expressed himself rather  pointedly, however. "You  propose .that the government  shall occupy one-tenth of the  building and- pay for one-  half," was the way he capped Mayor Bell's enthusiasm.  This" is ' not exactly the.  status of the case. But we  may be sure"' that any assistance; given by the government,"will demand .all within  reason that ean be demanded  and the city "will have to  make good, ��������������������������� dollar for dollar.

Rogers  Lumber Company will make  its record cut this season.  The demand for lumber has  increased enormously, and  the 12-hour daily shifts will  have to be continued for the  entire season if the supply is  to meet the demand. Manager Stevens has a perfect  organization in charge of the  mill, and seems to have reduced the cost of production  to the minimum. The steady  outgoing of trainloads of  the finished product would  indicate a ready market at  good prices.

ENDERBY  N his address at the corporation luncheon last  week, Premier .McBride paid  a very high tribute to the  fidelity and energy of Mr.  Price Ellison, member for the  Okanagan. He said he considered Mr. Ellison the hardest man in the Provincial  Legislature to turn down.  Jn spite of the fact that the  Okanagan District demanded  the largest grant of an district in the province^ to carry  on the necessary public work  to keep pace with the growth  of the district, yet Mr. Ellison never took his departure  at the close of the session  without gently reminding  him of a few "little.things"  urgently needed, which had  been overlooked.  The people of the Okanagan, regardless of sebtion  Ta-nd-politicaLafFiliation,Jaio:w.  full well how frue are the remarks of the Premier. Mr.  Ellison's fidelity to every  part of the district has never  been questioned, and nobody  knows better than the men  who have been sent to Victoria as delegates from time  to time, how valuable his assistance is in bringing before  the government the matter  in hand.  It was a splendid tr bute,  and the best of it is, it is true.  Observe the Law  TUST now several unfor-  eJ tunate. bash ranchers are  bemoaning the loss of $50,  the amount of the fine imposed for setting a bush fire  without first complying with  the law in getting a permit,  either of the provincial constable or the dominion fire  warden. We sympathize  with these unfortunate settlers. But it will be cheaper  for them to recognize that  the.day of side-stepping is  ended, and make up their  minds to observe the law.  The government has the  v/elfare and protection of  the country at heart, and in  carrying out the law with  reference to fires, the. government officials do. not intend to be side-tracked. The  law must be observed. That  it will work a hardship on  some, there is no doubt, but  laws are lav/s, made to be  respected by all alike. Let  us drop, the antiquated idea  expressed as we often hear  it: "'Yes, that's the law all  right,        "  but it is ' not observed  in i,il.s_ section." We have  had too much of it for our  own good. .The lesson some  are learning is for us all.

H. W. WRIGHT, Proprietor  Enderby  Editor The Enderby Press:  Sir: Your references to what  you call "side-stepping" are all  right as far as they go,   but I  think you are unfair in not giving the names of the "side-steppers."   What good is it to say  city laws are "side-stepped" and  not tell who is doing the "sidestepping"?   I want to tell you  there are eight business people  "side-stepping"  a city by-law,  and our mayor, is really one of  the biggest of them.    The city  by-law regulating the use   of  the city water places the water  rate for stores and offices at $1  per month, and it says that anyone drawing water from a faucet  he does not pay rent on may be  fined by the mayor or magistrate.  Now, sir, seven of these business  men are renters in the mayor's  buildings.   Does this make them  not liable to the fine?    I see the  barber, the butcher and the real  estate man getting their water  daily from the King Edward  street tap.   Then there are all of  the office tenants in the Bell block  and the stores; where do they get  their water?   I am told there is  not a water tap in the Bell block.  I am a ratepayer. .

After a brief visit to Victoria I  shall visit the Okanagan district  to hunt for a suitable property.  It is possible that I may spend a  year on a fruit orchard in order  to gain experience."  Thus spoke the Hon. George  Brodrick of London, Eng., to the  Vancouver Province a few days  ago. The young man, who recently attained his majority, is  the heir of Lord Middleton, and  known before his succession to  the title as Hon. St. John Brodrick, secretary of war in the Salisbury and Balfour cabinets.  ' 'British Columbia is now attracting more attention among  the well-to-do classes in England  than any other portion of Canada," he remarked. "Its varied  and enormous resources are now  becoming  quite well known."  Big Things at Armstrong  The Celebration Committee are  hard at work. The Vernon Fire  Brigade and Inderby Bands have  been engaged.

A new city is to appear on the .Pacific  Coat, within few months. It will not  be oi hapliaz; .(1 growth. It ha .��������������������������� ..ecu  plauiKHl lor years iu advance, tho lines  of its growth have been mapped out, and  it ocly remains to ?ct a date for occupation and then get the people.  Thc Grt_id Trunk Pacific Railway  Company., which is building a new transcontinental line across Canada chiefly  through virgin territory is responsible  for this city that is to be. It has been  chrifet .ucd far iu advance of its birth.  Thc city is Prince K .pert, and it is to  be tbe Pacific coast terminus of tiie new  railroad.  . Prince Rupert is 550 miles north of  Vancouver aud ouly forty miles south of  the Alaskan boundary. That 19 pretty  far north, but it is in thc same latitude  a-d I__)idon and its mean temperature is  about the Fame as London's. By land  and sea it is protected by mountains.  ]t-s harbor is practically landlocked, but  it has a mile wide roadstead for ships.  Thc projectors of this new seaport  went at the choice of a site, carefully.  The entire north coast was searched and  every harbor sounded. The best way for  the railroad through the mountains had  to be taken into consideration.  Further; the most available route to  Vokohama and thc rest of thc Far East  . had to be t .ken into account. Thc choice  was made four years ago, and since then  tlicy have been making plans for the  new city. The first subdivision of the  town Fite will be made about Hay 1  and the public invited to come in and  buy.  The steamship route fo thc new port  from the Far East lies through thc Dixon entrance into Uccate Strait, thence  iuto Chatham Sound and Prince Rupert  harbor. The harbor is really a strait t. -  -tween Digby Island and Prince Rupert  Island nnd it extends fourteen miles inland beyond the site of the newcity.  The Provincial'Government of British Columbia made, a grant of 10,000  acres to tho railway company, whicli  bought up 14,000 acres of Indian reserve liyi:l, making 1M-.000 acres for the  city to grow in. Probably it will need  no more acreage. It will start out witb  -.000 acres only, but'that is 60?nc space.  The work of planning Prince Rupert  began in earnest in May, 1900. Sine*  then surveying and clearing have been  curried ou simultaneously. The land ie  cleared now and tho town site, thc _,���������������������������  0( . ceres on which the start is to be  made, ha9 been mapped out.  This town hns got to grow as the law  direct, and not as the people will.  -Street, will not follow cow paths or Indian "trails. It has all been attended to,  oven to laying out parks and boulevard,  which may not be needed for half a century.  One of the first -steps (he engineers  took was to employ landscape gardener., who have produced a plan whicli  combines the utilitarian and thc artistic  in city building. The landscape artists  were Brett <fc Hall, of Boston, who'laid  out  Mount  Royal  Park,  Montreal.  If you visit Prince Rupert to-day you  will find a settlement huddled on th������������������  waterfront. It is madejip, largcjy_ct  "tebpornry structures in wEich the engineers and workmen have been housed  and fed aud provided for. Many of the**  structures will disappear when thc city  gets its start. Your idea of thc city to  come must bo had from maps.  These  maps show a  long waterfront  broken by several   little   bays.    A few  strects back from thc water   the laud  ascends,  at first gradually    and    th-.  abruptly.  "���������������������������The streets arc to go up hill in curves;  hi fact ecorcely half of thc M-rects fcf  (hia new city will run iu straight lineR.  Mo.'-t of the thoroughfares arc numbered, the avenues generally parallel to tut*.  M'at.r front, the streets at right, angles  lo it. There are many familiar namr>������������������.  Water street, 1 leach street, Main street;  also a Railroad avenuo, but no Broadway appears���������������������������possibly it is too Ameii-  caii.  Hero and there where thc topography  permit.- are>ird_s with streets radiating  therefrom. Away un on the hillside the  L'rinee Rupert Boulevard had been  mapped. It eourves around above the  prospective city, affording (on paper)  magnificat views of thc harbor and its  future array of shipping.  Vou ean easily imagine a second or  'bird generation of the pioneers who  th.ms-oh .s aro yet to be driving in automobiles along tho boulevard and taking  in the sights. There are mountains on  the opposite shore ready and willing to  bo looked at, and to the northwest,  'through an island studded channel, is the  famous Indian village of Mctlakalta.  The hnxlK>r itself bus been mapped  by the Dominion Government Hydro-  graphic Survey. It is free from rocks or  other, obstructions and of sufficient depth  to afford good, anchorage. Thc entrance  is sh .Light, 2.0_0 feet iu width at the narrowest part, with a-.minimum depth of  ... feet-at .low tide. A permanent wharf  1,300' foot long has been constructed.  Tbe British Columbia Government, isn't  going to have this new city at the  mercy of a. corporation. It has taken a  strong hand in the work of development  One-quarter of all thc land reverts to the  province, as also one-quarter of the  waterfront, after the townsite has been  laid out.- ���������������������������  The first inhabitants of this city won^t  have to worry over public improvements.  They will' find graded streets, sidewalks  and sewers ready for them. , The Pro-  'vinoinI Government appropriated $200,-  000 for early improvements, and ample  provision will have.-been nmde'in advance  for a population of 10,000 people. As the  population increases the improvements  will keep well in advance. The gradual  slope of tho land, with an occasional  abrupt rise, has made the drainage problem very easy of solution,  Th<* town of course will have to wait  for the railway, but it is creeping across  tho Northwest prairies. It is 1,750 miles  from Winnipeg to Prince Rupert over  the Grand Trunk Pacific' route, and trains  are now running between Winnipeg and  Wainwright, Alberta, 007 miles. The  time ( .ble boars the usual legend, ''Subject to change without notice," and in  this case the change usually means the  addition of a few more stations to the  west ever}' month or so. Construction  from thc Prince Rupert end will soon  begin. n  Transportation facilities will give  Prince Rupert its 'excuse for being, and  many industries wait upon the. completion of the railway. The fishing industry expects io take a jump forward.  The salmon .pack last season in thc  Ske������������������n a River. iv .h _ miles south of  Prince Rupert, was valued mit $1,000,000  and gave employment to 5,000 persons.  This product has gone to Vancouver and  Victoria by wa.tcr, but when tbe railway  comes much of it will go through  Prince Rupert.  Other fisheries besides salmon are  waiting -to be developed. A license ha.a  been g_..i_l_d to establish a whaling station near thc new oily. In the winter  months whales abound, .even in Prince  Rupert Harbor.  There is a timber industry yet in if*  infancy, and mining properties in the  mountains need oniv means of transportation.  Of course Prince Rupert has had- a  si-art already. There is a. population of  COO. But only those have come to the  new town who have had to do with thc  work of thc railway company or tho  Government. - '  It has been impossible for any one to  buy or lease land without official s..ii_-  uon, and the" bars have been up quite  securely, .hist enough " business was let  in to furnish the contractors and laborers with ..upplios.

Gnagg _ a&sUtai.cc as valet,  .for an evening out, squats himself iu her  dressing room while she is making her  toilet and helps her along- with the following comment:  Going to put those ma pier mache slipper., on, eh? Huh! To-morrow you'll  be mooching around ihe place with one  of those colds of yours and wondering  how you got it.  How's that. They're not papier mache  but suede? Well, wliat's- the difference?  All comes to the same thing. The tops  of 'cm reach only about half way up your  toes, and your whole foot is exposed to  wind and weather, especially with those  tissue paper stockings vou've got on.  Silk, eh?

Why, if a man  had to wear shoes or .Uppers with thc  -heels smack daub under the instep for  ten minutes at a stretch" he'd go_ nutty  and run amuck and bite a whole lot of  peo)>!e to death, and the National Guard  'd have to turn out and fetch him down  with a Gat ling, gun.

Comedy in Train Hold Up  If a comedy were to be written  showing a train hold-up in burlesque, it could not be made as  ridiculous as the actual hold-up  which took place on the mainline  just out of Ducks Monday night.  Two men covered the engineer  and fireman and made them stop  at a fire on the track. Here four  more men appeared and all talked  gruffly while one fired two shots  in the air. The leader then had  the fireman take an ax and cut a  hole in the panel of the express  car doors large enough for the  robber to put his head through.  The leader poked his head into  the openings and looked around,  v. hile the other five looked around  outside���������������������������and talked very gruffly.  Then they went to the mail car  and talked gruffly to the mail  clerk.  "Open up! Open up or we'll  blow yer t' kingdom come!" says  the bad man.  "Blow away!" say the mail  clerk, sassy like.  Then the bad man talks some  more to the mail clerk and he  opens up. The robber flashed  his bull's eye into the car, then  talked gruffly some more to the  mail clerk. Told him to get inside and close the door. Then  the bad man said to his pals,  says he: "Nothin' here, fellers;  beat it!"  And they beat it! If the reporter who wrote the account in  the Province wasn't drunk, he  should have been. If the mail  clerk wasn't blown into kingdom  come, he ought to get there by  some other route.
