It is pleasing to note the rapidly
increasing interest displayed in the
(turning carnival. The voting unvoting for her majesty the queen is
growing warmer each hour, but us
yet it is impossible to form the shallow of a surmise as tc which of the
fair contestants will bo chosen. In
order to meet the requirements of
neighborings ton nspn the voting question, the carnival directors Have decided to extend the time of voting
till August 20th. Each town is at
liberty to nominate as many candi-
tiatlR for queen as they choose,
but each vote stands independent of the other. The candidates now in nomination are
us follows: Miss Rose Hoffman, Miss
Valdea Duford, Grand Forks; Miss
Annie Pierce, I'lioenix; Miss Bur-
cell, Rossland, Nelson nnd Greenwood are yet to be beard from. The
material for the magnificent entrance is all in readiness to be placed
on the grounds, and a small army
of mechanics will begin to erect the
structure today. Another pleasing
feature of thc administration is thc
issuing of season tickets, which are
now on sale, the price being 50 cents,
admitting you as often as you like
during tbe carnival fur the entire
four days. These tickets can be
purchased at Woodlann's drug store.
.Season tickets will remain on sale
till August 23rd. The directors have
gone to considerable expense in obtaining from Spokane the services
uf a skilled modiste, who is take
charge of the correct costuming of
thc lady who may be chosen queen,
A ifalso alarm of lire created i
great deal of excitement on tbe
streets yesterday evening for a few
minutes. Tbe rumor that thc court

J. Burtt Morgan returned from
the coast last Friday, and left for
Chilliwack this afternoon. Mr.
Morgan is now general manager nf
the Chidiwack Power & Light Co.,
Ltd., recently incorporated for thc
purpose of harnessing the Chilliwack river. Mr. Morgan says there
is a big local demand for power to
operate'the various industries in the
town and the numerous creameries
that dot the ranches of the surrounding country. The company
expects to develop sufficient power
before long to operate a tram line
between Chilliwack and New Westminster, a distance of 50 miles. A
by-law hns just been passed by the
Chilliwack council granting the
company a twonty-five yearn' franchise, with ..he privilege of renewal
for ten years more. The by-law
also grants the company the exclusive right of erecting pule lines and
operating trams within the municipality for Iwenty year, and tlio exclusive telephone right for ten years.
Tbe company has been granted exemption from taxation for ten years.

Conway, champion 116-pound colored boxer of Philadelphia, Mr.
McLaughlin acted as referee, The
contest was a scientific exhibition of
the manly art, and both men were
very clever with their lists. As the
fight was only a sort of friendly display of prowess, no knock-out blows
were delivered, It is probable that
a match will be arranged between
Turner and a Coeur d'Alcne boxer,
to be pulled off in this city during
the carnival.

getting too much free advertising.
It is rumored that Messrs. Mcintosh and Hackett will have coal to I
bum next winter.
Everybody in Grand Forks interested in East Kootenay coal is. of
course, grateful I'm-the coal licenses,
and their fireplaces will undoubtedly
be in the same condition next winter.
The perversity of tilings is aptly
illustrated by the fad thnt the coal

for perpetual licenses to prospect for

MAN'S HOST CRITICAL AGE
Very often the vital resources are
-small nt forty-two, but if not then, between fifty-seven and sixty-two years
nf age there is a strange slowing down
and loss of vitality. It is iniportuit

imparted to the tired bruin; the weakened nerves must be fortified. Tie-
wise man will use Ferrozone- whose
potency is purtioularly applicable t.,

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
thc Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line | passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a/choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equip:
ment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair care,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.
For additional details address J.
D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande
Lines, No. 124 Third Street, Portland, Ore.
THE MILWAUKEE    .
A familiar name for the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St.Paul Railwiiy,known
all over the Union as the great rail
way running the "Pioneer Limited"
trains every day and night betweenSt.
Panl and Chicago, and Omaha und
Chnigo. "The only perfect trains in
the world." Understand: Connections are mado with All TranHeonti
nental Lines, assuring to passengers
the best service known. Luxurious
coaches, electric lights, steam heat, of
a verity equaled by no other line.
See that your ticket reads via "The
Milwaukee" when going to any point
in the United States or Canada. All
ticket agents sell them.
For rates, pamphlets or   other   information, address

Old Age.
PROFESSOR JOWETT, the great
master of Balllol College. Ms*
wise words to speak on the crucial topic of growing old. He wrote to
a friend:
"The later yiwrs of life appear to
me, from a certain point of view, to be
the best. They are less disturbed by
oare and the world; we begin to understand that things really never did matter so much as we supposed, and we
are able to see -them more tn their true
proportion, Instead of being overwhelmed by them. We are more resigned to the will of God, neither afraid
to depart nor (.verarixlous to stay. We
cannot see Into another life, but wc believe, with an Inextinguishable hope,
that there Is something >tu' reserved
tor us,'*
It Is worth while to remember ills
hints for old age, full, as they are. of •
praotloal wisdom: ,    .
Beware of the coming on of age. for
It will not lie defied.
A man cannot become young by overexerting himself.
A man. of sixty should lead a quiet,
open-air life.
He should colUjot the young about
him.
He should set other men to work.
He ought, tt sixty, to have acquired
authority, reticence and freedom rrom
personality.
. He may truly think of the last yean
of life as being th* Wit, and every year |
M better than (•*• Ust, U he kiwws
how to use it
The Upheaval of the Celt
Someone has been vetting forth tin-
littles of the Celt. The upheaval ol the
elt is a periodic event, .and is in some
vsv distantly related to the Australian
Irought cycles,and tl,V spot*, on the sun.
Personally (says a writer in an Australian paper) I have always found tlisl
vou can make a last friend and sworn
ally of the Celt by simply remarking in
an affable mature-, "Coed night, Sera-ant!" .The Celtic chest swells immediately, there is a more dignified atmosphere about the movements of his hind
legs; und after passing that remark
three nights running you are free to
commit any crime i^i the calendar—murder, arson, abduction; anything, in.fact,
hut the crime ofitteai-itlg *'me uniform."
Yes. the Celt is a very fine fellow as long
as yon address him as "Sergeant"—unless he is a sergeant—then 1 am always
careful to address him as "Inspector;*
That, however, has to be done with dis-'
cretion—if done too often or too suddenly the Celt is liable to burst.

CATARRH IS CERTAINLY CURABLE
In fact it is one of the most curable
diseases if fragrant, healing Catarrhozone is used. No matter how long
you have suffered with catarrh you can-
be perfectly cured by inhaling the antiseptic vapor of Catarrhozone, which
strikes at the foundation ofthe trouble
and establishes such a healthy condition in the system that catarrhal germs
simply can't exist. "I suffered-from
catarrh of the nose and throat for
years," writes Si H. Downie of Platts-
ville. "My nostrils were always stuffed
up and I had a most disagreeable
hacking cough. Catarrhozone cured me
completely," Catarrhozone never
fails. Two months' treatment 81.00,
trial size 25c. H. E. Woodland, druggist.

A radieal change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of thc newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 11.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based nut only on the popular price at which it is sold, hut
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the,Toronto
News with our own paper at $'2.'2o n
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the home ami district news, and
thc big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to sec
thc paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.
