Monday night a special meeting
of the school board was held (or tbe
purpose of considering tbe plans of
Alex Currie, the Nelson architect,
for an addition to tbe public school
building, the plans having arrived in
the city a couple of days previous lo
the meeting. The board decided to
cill for tenders at once for the erection of a four-room addition, which
will cost about f 17,000. The board
has received a grant of (12,000 from
the provincial government for the
building, and a request has been
made to tbe city council to appropriate the additional $3000 necessary to complete it. Tenders are
now being advertised for, and tbey
must be in the hands of tbe
secretary by August 19, The trustees intend to rush tbe work on the
building as fast as possible, as the
present school quarters aae inadequate for tbe increasing number of
pupils.
all dogs Bent from Victoria and Vancouver and that vicinity. Special
attention will also be given to the
canines tbat will be sent to tbe show
through Kinsgate, Rykerte, North-
port-and other customs offices. Tbe
dogs coming tbrough tbe latter
points should be shipped to Bailey
& Brown, customs brokers, Symons
block, Spokane. The dog fanciers
are urged to give an average valuation of 150 per dog and to bill as
many dogs as possible on an invoice
in order to save themselves expense.
The fanciers are also urged to send
an advance list of the dogs to the
brokers, giving tbeir breed, sex, age,
name, color, and statistics about

possibility of their being lost.
Information concerning entries,

Strong recognition of tbe fact tbat

its annuel bench show in connection
witb tbe Spokane Interstate fair on
October 3-5. Tbe British Columbia

good portion of tbe prizes at the Interstate fair, and during tbe bench
shows of the Spokane Kennel club,
and added prizes and trophies tbis
year come as a result nf former
showings.
This year will he the firat tbat tbe
Interstate fair and tbe Spokane Kennel club bave offered a prize for
Canada only. The Glen Tana farm
of Spokane has put up a solid silver
cup called tbe Maple Leaf trophy for
the hest dog or hitch, an breed, exhibited from Canada. The district
classification, however, in no way
affects, tbe entries into the olb**r
classes, of which tbere are some 27
different ones, all calling for either

"Uncle Tom's Cabin"
Burk's big "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
company, the largest organization of
its kind in America, will exhibit at
Grand Forks, Thursday night, August 8. On tbis occasion the famous old play will be presented in
aa new and elaborate a form as
modern thought and stage invention
will permit, and doubtless the big
pavilion theatre will be filled to its
utmost capacity during tbeir performance here. Tbe principal char
acters in this grand old play will be
interpreted by a very competent
cast of lady and gentlemen artists
that have been selected especially
for tbeir ability to give a correct interpretation of Uncle Tom, Topsy,
Ophelia, Marks, I.egree, Eliza, St.
Claire and Little Eva; the balance of
the cast are exceptionally good. A
contingent of the vaudeville artists
consulting of jubilee singers, hoop
rollers, buck and wing dancers, wire
walkers, etc.,are introduced through
out the'play, frisking it the strongest
productfon of tbis popular drama
ever presented to the public. A
pack of Siberian bloodhounds,
horses, ponies, donkeys, and an unusually gorgeous transformation
scene are also among the many features of this grand spectacular production.
The public dance is the modern
school for scandal.
A Victoria dispatch says thnt before many months elapse it is probable that Jhe land in the railway belt
of British Columbia will be banded
over to the province for administration. Information to this effect was
brought back from OUe<va by Hon.
Thomas Taylor, provincial minister
of public works, wbo has jnst returned from a trip to the Dominion
capital.
"Tbe matter does not come within the jurisdiction of the minister
of public works," says Mr. Taylor,
"and for that reason I discussed it
only incidentally with the minister
of tbe interior while we were talking
over some otber matters. I gathered,
however, tbat he favored dealing
with the land of the railway belt as
the water of tbe same area has already been deal with; that is to say,
by handing its administration over
to the province on the understanding tbat any njvenutj derived therefrom over and above expenses, shall
be paid into the Dominion treasury.
I have no doubt that tbe subject
will be taken up by Mr. Ross, as
minister of land."
Although nothing official has yet
been done, there is little doubt that
tbe suggestion whicb Mr. Taylor bas
brought back with him from Ottawa
will be acted upon in tbe near future. Tbe claims of individual
homesteaders and squatters in'the
railway belt are now being investi
gated by S. Maber, of tbe department of the interior, and tbe understanding is that all of tbese claims
are to be' settled without unnecessary delay.
Meantime no more homestead
entries in tbe belt are being allowed,
and no more timber licenses are being issued, so that the further development of this whole area has
practically been stopped until a
proper working basis can be reached.
It is not anticipated, however, that
this state of affairs will last very
long.
As soon as Mr. Maber has completed his work, it is understood
tbat tbe department.of tbe interior
will issue a regulation by which the
amount of land which u homesteader
can take up in lbe railway belt will
be reduced to forty acres and al lbe
same time forbidding homesteaditig
altogether on timbered lections. Tbe
practical effect of this will be that
future homesteaditig in Ihe railway
belt will be confined almost altogether to lands requiring irrigation.

The Average Income
The average Income is sorely  tried
In the struggle to make ends meet—
To pay the wages ot those who help
Ami the bills for the food we eal.
For buller is ii|T, potatoes are up,
Antl meals were :iever so dear
But the average ir.come just stands
still,
Or else grows smaller each year.
The cook In the kitchen asks for more
And so does the serving maid.
And  then, perforce, as a matter of
course,
The increase must be paid.
We are told Ihe coal is about to rise
The gas bills nro twice as large—
And for every strike which threatens
the lund
The consumer must pay the charge.
So. wha! a'e lhe people going lo do,
And how are we going to live,
When the average Income is stretched
and strained
Beyond what It's able to give?
Boyt to Help Cultivate Land
The agricultural department iif Ihe
United States has succeeded In Interesting the boys of many of the
states in the cultivation of the land.
This has been done by forming the
lads into clubs and offering prizes for
the best specimens of corn or other
produce grown by them. The enthusiasm shown by the boys and the
splendid results tbey have attained
have made the movement very popular. As It began in the south the
societies were known as "Corn Clubs"
nnd Ihe name has been retained even
where corn is not the staple product
ot Ihe farm. The plan Is one worthy
of imitation by Canadians. Already
the tendency of younger people lo do
anything and everything but cultivate the land is apparent in many
parts of our counitry. If the passion
fnr making things grow were aroused
among the children, more of tbem
would remain on farms. The growth
of the cities, at the expense of the
rural population Is not a healthy sign.
Agriculture ls no longer work for
mere strength and muscle. The farmer of to-day must be the equal ln Intelligence and business ability of his
brothers in the cities. In no way
cut! a hoy learn this so well as by
cultivating for himself a lot of land
snd In Ing -aa '.raged lo compete
with !a.!s of his own age and to en.
lov *ii<   results ot his own Industry.

TAINTED  MONEY
Scholarships From Slave Money and
Churches Founded from War
Indemnity
Perhaps tbe most valuable and most
famous scholarships, hoth at Oxford
and Cambridge, are the "Craven"
one. The fund which every year
supplies some of the most brilliant
—but none too wealthy—students In
Qreat Britain jvith the means of becoming great and famous in their
special branches of learning had surely as strange an origin as any of the
kind you can find In scholarship records.
Kor when a certain Earl of Craven
left a large sum uf money to be used
for the release of slaves who bad been
captured by the Algerian and Bar-
bary pirates and slave dealers, he
could uot have had the slightest Idea
that the day would soon come when
the money would never be needed for
such a purpose, and when a grateful
Parliament would determine that, instead, the interest from the Investment Bhould be employed as means
for furnishing the finest scholarships
for poor students at the two greatest
and oldest English universities. Yet
that Is how the "Craven Scholarships" were founded there.
Famous Lotteries
Many folk once had much to selegiline! lotteries In England, and it
was, perhaps, not a bad thing when
they were abolished by law. Yet It
is well worth while remembering that
In their hey-day, public lotteries did
a vast deal of good, as well as a vast
deal of harm.
And when one speculates on the pal-
Ivy gambling spirit of to-day, which
finds Its outlet In an attempt to wlu
a large sum by spending a sixpence
in making a miserable attempt to
poetise better than somebody else,
one cannot but think that the real
properly-conducted lottery which
could build a British Museum, a Waterloo Bridge, a St. Paul's was immensely better as a way of satisfying
and yet keeping iu right bounds the
fever for gambling which seems to
be In the blood of so many folk.
For the British Museum, Waterloo
Bridge, and no small part of St. Paul's
were erected from the proceeds of
lotteries, public lotteries, held In theBe
Islands and sanctioned by Parliament.
And what grand results they are, at
any rate, those splendid erections, and
how mtTch superior to anything which
the gambling fever produces to-day!
Present Day Examples
Even now, ln other countries, these
State lotteries are doing big things
in their own way, however much we
in Britain may agree pr disagree wltb
tbem. Throughout the Oerman Empire—and Ihe astute Germans generally know wbat they are doing In the
m.ney line!—public lotteries are often adopted for the purpose of Increasing State revenue. A man
much prefers to pay (25 for a ticket
which may win him a large sum that
will make hint, independent for life,
and incidentally provide funds for
some necessary Slate purpose, tban to
be taxed to the extent of $20 and see
nothing whatever to bis own benefit
for the sum thus reluctantly paid to
a needy Government. Last year, In
Prussia such State lotteries gave a
clear profit to the country of more
than (22,600,000; nobody grumbled at
paying tbe money, several folks gained large fortunes, and even tbose who
were unsuccessful were really little
more out-of-pocket than they would
have been by paying a tax In lieu
of the profit thus made.
Another Curious Case
As another curious way of a fine
building being provided for strangely,
we may take the case of tbe Phlll-
potts porch of Truro Cathedral. The
late Canon Pblllpotts bought a picture
of "Lady Hamilton" from a friend for
$150. It turned out later to be a
Homney, and waa eventually sold for
$16,000. Of this sum the delighted
Canon agreed to give half as a thank-
offering, in'order to build Ihe splendid porch of the new cathedral at
Truro, which would otherwise have
found itself badly spoiled for want of
money to finish Ibis part of the structure as it ought to have been done.
Then, too, have we not before ua
the Interesting Instance of Queen
Alexandra's girt of \'ie annual profit
from the sermon preached al. the
death of her dearly beloved eldest
son—which sermon she caused to be
published and sold nt two cents a
copy—lo the erection nf a chapel for
tho Gordon Boy's Home al Woking?
No less than close on $10,000 has now
been devoted by Die Queen to this
purpose, and today Ihe beautiful chapel tliere stands as a monument of
what a glorious building can arise
from u curious origin.

town sent half a dozen photographs

a telegram came from the chief at
Smarleton—a neighboring town—saying: Your six photographs received.
We have succeeded In arresting four
of the criminals, and expect to get

The albino Ib still one of the pussies of science. Beyond the knowledge that albinism is due to a iaek
of thj normal pigment in skin ami
hair the' physiologist and pathologut
are about as much at sea regatdiii.;
tho real explanation ot this freak of
nature as they were 100 or 1,000 yeats
ago. Ab to the ultimate why of tin
problem—why the pigment is musing in the albino—tbere Is no'hlni
but a collection of unconvincing
guesses. Regarding the statistics of
albinism nothing satisfactory is obtainable except ln two countries. In
Italy the albinos number, about one
In every 20,000 of the population,
whereas ln Norway the rale Is twice

Life Line Used by Mountaineers
Tbe ropes used by Alpine climbers
IS of-special manufacture, combining
as far as possible tlie differing qualities ot strength, flexibility and lightness. Three qualities are In general use, being made from Sisal, Italian and Manilla hemps respectively
and occasionally, when* cost Is not a
consideration, of silk. The latter,
though very light und strong, Is not
so" durable r.s the others. • That
which finds most favor among British mounti Ineei'B is known as Buckingham's Alpine l'ope; It Is made ofthe best Manilla hemp.
In tbe year* 1864, Mr. McLelsh re-
culls a committee of the Alpine Club
made teats upon a number of ropes
suitable for mountaineering. Of the
two that were approved one waa mad*
of Italian hemp and the other of Manilla. They both had a breaking
strain of two tons and sustained th* .
weight of a twelve atone man after
railing from a height often feet. Non-
mountaineers have sometimes considered this Insufficient, but it ls highly
problematical whether the human anatomy could survive the sudden compression of a thin rope arising from
any greater fall.—Pry's Magaslne.
Nature's Way Is The Best.
Buried deep in our American forest we 6nd bloodroot, queen's root, nun-
drake aad stone root, (olden leal, Oregon (rape root sad cherrybark. Of these Dr.
R. V. Pitroe made a pun glyceric extract which has b;en favorably known for
over forty years.   He called it " Golden Medicsl Discovery."
This " Discovery " purites the blood and tones up the stomaoh and the entire
system ia Nature' own wsy. It's just the tissue builder and tonic you require
when recovering from a bard cold, (rip, or pneumonia. No metier how strong the
constitution the stomseh is apt to be " out of kilter " et times; in consequence
the blood is disordered, for the stomach is the laboratory for tbe constant manufacture of blood. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery strengthens the stomach—
puts it in ahspe to make pun, rich blood—helps tne liver snd
kidneys to expel the poisons I ram the body. The weak, nervous, run-down, debilitated condition which so msny people
experience at this time oi lbe year Is usually tbo elect of
poisons in the blood; it is olten indicated by pimples or boils

Nervous Prostration Is a terrible
disease to all who understand its
symptoms. At times the sufferer
alight exertion the dreadful helpless-
less returns.and all strength and vitality seems to leave the system.
This letter from MrB. Martin very
well describes the terrible condition
in which many a auffere)' finds herself. . She also tells how she regained health and' strength by using Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food after all other
treatments had failed.
Mrs. Edwin Martin, Ayer's Cliff,
Que., writes:—^Before I began using
Dr. Chase's Nervo Kood I was in a
terrible condition from nervous exhaustion and prostration. Dizzy
spells would come over me and 1
would fall to the floor. The weakness was so great that I could not so
much aa sweep the floor without, fainting, but the nerve food helped me
after the doctors failed. It has done
wonders in building up my nervous
system. I can do my own housework now and washing, and feel that
this great medicine hns been a Godsend to me 1 think lt is thu best of
medicines." -

Extermination of Rats and Mice
If lt were - generally known that
there ls no trouble to rid a house,
barn or any building of rats and mice
by the use of Olllett's Lye, ii is
doubtful If the article could be made
as fast as It would be used for tills
purpose alone The process connected with using it is very simple, the
plan being to sprinkle a little of the
article in and around the holos made
by these pests, in floors, partitions,
etc. In addition to this it ia well
to use a thin piece of board about a
foot square, or even smaller, and
make a complete circle of tlie Lye
on the board about a quarter of an
inch deep, and Inside of the circle
place some meat or cheese. In en-
devoring to get at the halt the feet
of the rats and mice will be burned
and Ibe whole colony, whether large
or small, will Immediately disappear
from the premises.
The plan is worth trying, but the
good kind—Cilktl's Lye—should be
procured. Hefuse the many cheap
imitations and  substitutes.
Tht President of Switzerland
The President ot Switzerland Is
so hedged about by the Constitution
that, except for official purposes and
to facilitate the exchange of courtesies and of amicable understandings
with foreign nations, he has no more
standing than the other six members
ot the council of which he forms a
part.' He Is elected for one year, haB
no official residence, and his chief
business ls to sign" the documents ot
the Bundesrat or Council of Seven.
His salary is, ln our money, equal to
about ?3,600 a year, and there ls no
provision for private expenses, such
as traveling or entertaining. He ls
expected to live in the capital ot the
country during the year he holds office. His associate members lu the
Bundesrat get )3,000 a year, and they
are elected for three years, their votes
having the same force as that of the
President.
As a rule the President of Switzerland is before election a member of
this council, and Is elected to the
higher office without opposition; but
in 1883 he had a rival, and though
he won in the election he was unable
to support what In bis country is
looked upon aB an affront, and committed suicide before his inauguration,
ln this connection it might be well
to note, too, that Switzerland la the
one country on the globe where lt
costs nothing to die, as in certain
cantons rich and poor are buried at
the expense of the State.—Harper's
Weekly.

A Neat Coin Trick
Take two pins, one In each hand,
and pick up a coin with them by
pressing one to each side of the edge.
When you have got it firmly held,
blow ou tlie coin, and it will revolve
rapidly- A coin with a rough edge
—a 50 cent piece, quarter or dime—is
the best to use. A dime, because the
figures on It are smaller than on the
other pieteB, cau be made to spill so
fast that it looks us if lt were spherical instead of flat. The trick is
very easy to do, although it may
look hard. All thut is needed is
steady hands.

Average  price  received  for  eggs,
38c per dozen. Pen Temperature—
Highest, 94°; lowest, 48°; average
mean temperature, 65.8°—these are
shade temperatures. Rain fell on
Sight davs, and a severe thunderstorm
occurred on June 25. Twenty-two
days were bright, and one dull day
recorded during the month.
Eor the first time during the competition, no blasting hast occurred
near the pens during the month, although the Canadian Pacific railway
has done considerable dynamiting
about half-hile away.
The absence of stump-clearing operations has had a beneficial effect upon the month's egg production generally.
In Class 1 pen 2 still increases its
splendid lead, producing 119 eggs during the month. On three days running they laid six eggs daily, then
missed one duy entirely, then laid six
eggs on the following day. Although
only medium-sized fgwls, they havo
by far the largest combs uf any of the
contestants in either class. Other pens
deserving special mention are I, 7 antl
18 (112 eggs each), 9 (1.09), 19 (106),
8 (96), 15 and 23 (95 each, 20 (92),
4 (91), 21 (88), and 10(86).
It will be noticed thnt pen 19 is
still climbing up near to the positions
which qualify for a prize. Pen 12, for
the first time, has left bottom, po-i-
tion.
The f illowing pens laid six eggs Oil

The birds seem to have become used
to the warm weather, and the egg
yields have not diminished during the
spell of hot weather. In Class 2 an
exciting race has again taken place
between pens 33 and 38. The latter
still holds premier position, but 33 did
a little better this month. It appears
as if these two pens.are extremely
well matched, and the race between
the two breeds of American fowls will
be of great interest to breeders partial
to these breeds.
The star performers for this month
are: Pen 37(102 eggs), 33 (97), 38
(93), 32 (89), 30 and 35 (83 each;),
26(81).

Green clover clippings are provided
daily, anil the yards have been spaded
over during the month.
Although a considerable number of
persons have visited the pens daily
since the contest started, the number
has been greatly augmented during
the past month. Kroin one thousand
to fifteen hundred people visited the
contest .on Saturdays and Sundays
during June and July. .

SUMMER SHN TROUBLES.
Sunburn, blistering, and Irritation
■re the commonest (orm ot- summer
akin troubles, and Zam-Buk ends these
very quickly. It works In two ways.
As soon as applied, Its antiseptic
powers get to work and kill all the
poison In a wound, a sting or a sore.
This generally ends the smarting and
the pain. Then Zam Buk begins the
healing process, and freBh healthy tissue Is built up. For sore, blistered
feet, sore hands, heat rashes, baby's
heat spots, tore places due to perspiration, etc., you can't equal Zam-Buk.
It also cures cuts, ulcers, abscesses,
piles, and all Inflamed and diseased
conditions of skin and subjacent tisane. Druggists and stores everywhere sell Zam-Buk, ROc. box. Use
Zam-Buk Soap also, 25c. per tablet.

All Made Clear
A woman missionary ln China was
taking tea with a mandarin's eight
wives. The Chinese ladies examined
her clothing, her hair, her teeth, and
so on, but her feet especially amazed
them. "Why," cried one, "you can
walk and run as well as a man'"'
"Yes. to be sure," said the missionary-
"Can you ride a horse, and swim,
too?" "Yes." "Then you must be
as strong.as a man!" "I am." "And
vou wouldn't let a man heat you—not
even if he was your husband—would
you?" "Indeed I wouldn't." the missionary said. The mandarin's eight
wives looked at one another, nodding
their heads. Then the oldest Bald,
softly: "Now I understand why the
foreign devil never has more than
010 wife.     He is afraid."
The transition from winter's cold
to summer's beat frequently puts a
strain upon the system that produces
Internal complications, always painlul
and often serious., A common form
of disorder is dysentery, to which
many are prone ln the spring and
summer. The, very best medicine
to use In subduing this painful ailment
Is Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Dysentery Cordial. It Is a standard remedy, sold
everywhere.
A Poet Successful and Laxy
Aspirants to suceesB who are discouraged hy the very early rising of
Coke and Kant should think of the
successful poet Thomson, and be comforted. For Thomson was one of
the laziest men that ever lived, and
seldom rose before noon.
And yet in "The Seasons" he managed to give us one of our finest descriptions of a sunrise. It is said
of him that he would eat the sunny
side oft the peaches ln his garden
■with his hands in his pockets, but
even such late rising and hi* Castle
of Indolence did not prevent his becoming famous.—London Chronicle-

The Oldest Newspaper
A class was recruiting a lesson in
ancient history, says a I.achine
school teacher and one of the pupils
was describing the Olympian games.
A great many people went to see
them, she said, because it was put In

inhabitants punctilious In the observance of all the usual outward demonstrations In loyalty to the crovn.
But the Colonel ln command ot the
Second Lite Guards, the regiment at
present stationed at Windsor, has
found tho townspeople remiss and has
taken the only means open to him
of punishing them.
One of the three regiments of
Household Cavalry Is always stationed
at Windsor, and for generations It
has been the custom of the towns-
p opie to go to the barracks atter
church parade and listen to the regimental band. One Sunday recently
Colonel Ferguson, the commanding
ollicer, was present ln the barrack
square when the band played the national anthem at the close of Its programme and was so struck with the
apparent disrespect, of many1 of the
civilian listeners who did not raise
their hats or salute ln any fashion
lhat on the following day he issued
an order prohibiting the band from
playing In the square till further orders.—McCall's Magazine.
I'm surprised, Tommy, said the father, reprovingly, that you should
strike'your little brother- Don't yon
know that It is cowardly to strike
anyone smaller than, yourself? Yes,
answered Tommy. But when you
spanked me yesterday I was too polite to mention it.
INDIGESTION
RIGHTLY CURED
By Toning up the Stomach to do the
Work Nature Intends It Should
Indigestion should not be neglected for a moment, for by depriving the
body of its proper nourishment
through the food, the trouble grows
steadily worse. Neither Bhould stimulating medicines, which ruin the already weak stomach by making it
work beyond Its strength, be used;
nor pre-digested foods, which do not
excite a flow of the digestive fluids,
and by disuse cause the stomach to
grow weaker. Nowhere ls the tonic
treatment by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
more clearly useful. The principle
ot this treatment Is to enable the
stomach to do Its own work by building up the blood and giving tone to
the nerves. When these are once
restored to their normal health Indigestion disappears and the cure is
permanent. Here is an experience
with this treatment. Mr. John Bre-
nenstal. Calgary, Alta., says: "For
years 1 was an almost constant sufferer from indigestion, aud naturally
because there was much nutritious
food which I could not eat owing to
the pain and discomfort which followed, I was becoming much run
diwn. I tried many medicines but
none of them helped me until I began the use of Dr. Williams! Pink
Pills. After taking a few boxes I
was much better and In the course
of a couple of months was quite well.
a.id could eat any food set before
in.*."
If you are a sufferer from Indigestion, or any trouble due to. bad
blood or weak nerves, you can begirt
to cure yourself today bv taking Dr:
Williams' Pink Pills. Sold by all
medicine dealers or by. mall at 50
cents a box or six boxes for 12.50 from

Central Kingsclear, York Co., N.B.

her own words, Mrs. Goodlne's experience is as follows:
"I was very miserable with Kidney

"I hare beard of your success In unraveling a number ot mysteries, and

loved our adventures In "sleuthing."
"I bare suffered a loss." Mr. Thome
frowned heavily, and I conld bare

"It la murder, downright murder!"
We gusped. Thit was something

"Hum!" tald Jack In a businesslike
'tone. "Give us.lbe particulars, please."
"Well, when 1 arose tbla morning be

Thome.
"Wbo wat dead?' we asked In unison, and I furtively reached for tbe

"Ulysses was atone dead on tbe rag

"Ab, Dlytset lt-er-your butler?"
ventured Jack.
Mr. Thome stared savagely at my
partner. "Butler? (Iood heavens, no.

A tear dimmed the other bard black
eye of our new client
"Tou suspect tome one of killing
your dog? Hare you an enemy-bad

An Englishman finds it hard tu
eoneeive of "sport" eacept as embodied in some "game." But the
German, says Ida A. It. Wylie in her
book on Germany, gets his sport
without finding it necessary to play
any game at all. Exercise that brings
him into close relation with natura
is more to his taste. The man that
sees no pleasure in tiring himself nut
on a tennis court or a football field
travels miles on skis through the lor-
ests, skates every free minute ol Ills
day and in the heat of the summer
goes on lung tours among the mountains. *
. At his own particular spotM the
German is a first-class man. and even
•he German woman reveals an energy that is simply astonishing. All
German girls can skate well; most of
them are good swimmers aud walkers
and proficient in winter sports. It is
only wl.en you osk tbem to play
games that they fail.
This dislike of games reveals an
Interesting trait in the German char-
after—namely, indifference to a success the only value o! which lies in
the defeat of some one e'se. In school
a German boy works U rd, not for a
prize, not because lie wants to do
better than a comrade, but because
he sees a distinct personal value iu
knowledge. His attitude it. sport is
quite in keeping.
"And suppose I do run myself hot
and tired over a lidiculoual patch of
ground after a ridiculous ball, antl
suppose I do win a game, what goad
will it do ine?"
"You will have had splendid exercise," says tbe Englishman'.
•'Ye«, but if I wanted exercise I
would rather go for a wulk through
the forest or moke a bicycling tour. I
Then I should perhaps learn something at the same time. At any rate.
I should be enjoying nature."
"But then there would be no
game!" retorts the Englishman.
"No game? What is the good nf a
game? Am I wiser or better if I beat
joh at tennis?"
"No. but She fun ol it"—
"I don't see any fun in beating
somebody at something which has no
value. That is childish and a waste

NtWS OF THt CITY IN BRIEF
A" peal of music ori the public
streets during the. busy hours yesterday forenoon, startled the citizens, and diverted their attention
from their customary occupations.
Many opinions were haiarded as to
the cause for the martial strains.
'Some thought *t,»X England had declared war against Germany, while
others expressed the belief that the
coronation of the city ollieials was
about to take place, it turned out
tai be nothing moie serious, bow-
ever, tban an impromptu musicale
by lhe juvenile band Irom thc Clril-
Uren's Home at Des Moines,  Wash,
Donald, J. Lihdsay, J. H. Kayee',
W. F. Eddy, T. R.'Hanson, W. A.
McKay. A. Hopper, H, Brown, S.
Waynock, W. Small and Mary Ann
Williamson.
A government grant of $51)0 for
the Greenwood fair arrived in. that
city last /aeek.
The Greenwood Miners' union hus
asked the British Columbia Copper
company to make a wage scale similar to the one in Butte. This scale is
a sliding one, based uponjtbe price of
copper. If granted, it means an ad-
vanBe of 50 cents a day to tho #2.50
inejtt at tbe Hineher, and tbe same
amiJunt to the ,_pien underground
whil^fcopper is $_* cents, lt will
notT.f.ect the surface men to any extent until copper^ Reaches 18 cents
or more.
.-< J. D. Honsberger, the fruit grower, will leave tomorrow on an extended business and vacation trip to
the prairie provinces.
A deal is pending for the bonding
of the Eureka group to the British
Columbia Copper company for $50,-
000. The properties are located near
Nelson and run high in copper.
Newspaper Virility
The story is going the   rounds of
!a western newspaper publisher who
wrote to six prominent men of his
; locality   asking for subjects to dis-
> cuss in his columns    He   received
; seventy two   suggestions   in   reply.
His comment on their ehaTncter is
! thnt if he should write for a   week
along the lines suggested by  the six
! representative citizens' he had con-
j suited,  he  would be nnd should be
ducked in the river as a  common
scold.   The  story   may be  a true
one, and the Montreal Gazette remarks: "There are evidently in the
i world a lot   of people,  besides the
I publishers of one class   of  journal
j who think  that to sneer at, malign
and affront other people is the  first
evidence of newspaper virility."
