Greenwood  Council gave the local Fair double  that amount.  There is a paper in South Vancouver called the B. C. Times.  The B. C. does not stand for  Boundary Creek.  At the last meeting of the Council, the mayor and city clerk were  authorized to issue the bonds to  the Big Tunnel Co.  Charles King has recovered  from a severe attack of kidney  trouble, and is once more able to  mingle with the throng on Copper street.

He now has an office  in Vancouver with Charley  Hunter. Years ago Wright was  police judge in Kaslo.  Owing to hard times the Fernie  Free Press is offering its two dogs  for sale at a sacrifice.

Their infant son  died on Saturday beiu^ the second  child they have lost within a few  weeks. They have the sympathy  of many friends in their sad affliction.  Louis Colquhoun died in the  penitentiary at New Westminister  last month. He was serving a  25 years sentence for helping Bill  Mitier to rob a train at Ducks  seven years ago. He worked in  Phoenix some years ago, and at  time was a good citizen.  Greenwood's first fair is now in  progress. It opened on Tuesday  afternoon by the school-children  under the leadership of R. G.',Har-  greaves inarching to the skating  rink where they sang the Maple  Leaf For Ever. After neat and  appropriate speeches had been  made by Mayor Mcintosh and J.  R. Jackson, M. P.'P., Martin  Burrell, M. P. gracefully came to  the front, and in a short, but eloquent address declared* the copper  city's first fair open to the world.  Then the children sang God Save  the King, after which the sports for  children were held.  The skating rink is tastefully  decorated with th'e usual bunting  and the exhibits show to great advantage.  Mr. Hill shows a fine collection  of fruit from Stevens county,  Wash. The balance of the fruit is  mainly from the vicinity of Rock  Creek, and is under the supervision  of Mr. Whiting, who has- been  tireless in his efforts to make this  branch of the show a success. In  this department ��������� is also to be seen  the first prize collection of fruit  from the Grand Forks Fair, now  the property of the enterprising  firm of Russell-Law-Caulfield Co.  The Rock Creek people have performed noble work in the making  of our first fair.'  Campbell and McDonald of  Grand Forks show an excellent  display of hand-made hammers and  horse shoes that are a triumph of  mechanical skill.  Martin Anderson has on exhibition a collection of old rare and  quaint coins that are.easily worth  th'o"usands*bf 'dollars,��������� ---*-=--���������-   ��������� ���������  .The mineral "exhibit under the  guardianship of the genial mining  expert, James Sutherland,' reveals  in a cluster of riches the ores of the  Argo, Emma,   Oro Denoro, Wellington,     Athelstan,     Wonderful,  Rawhide,  Helen,  King , Soloman,  Big   Copper,   Crescent   Fraction,  Crescent.  Skylark,  Last   Chauce,  Strathmbre,  Providence, Elkhorn,  Granby, No 7, Golden Crown and  Mother Lode mines.  The Phoenix Brewery Co. shows  in bottles and kegs a tempting display of the wet goods that have  made tbe highest city in Canada  famous. In passing this exhibit  many a mouth watered, and many  a hand reached for a hiddea corkscrew.  The art paintings, photos, and  bric-a-brac on exhibition delighted  artists and rancher alike.  The fancy . work department  under the supervision of Mrs.  Thompson delighted the ladies,  and the married men. Even Spokane never displayed anything  better.  The poetry of motion in the  dancing pavilion stirred the blood  of those who delight to trip the  light fantastic'  Mr. Kennedy's candy stand is  the leading attraction of the show  for the rising sweet-toothed generation. >:....���������"  George Lamb is doing noble  work with his irrigation plant,  while no one need go hungry for  Tom Mastin is right at his quick  lunch counter with pie and sandwiches like mother used t make,  and his coffe is nectar, even for the  gods and reporters.  Russell-Law-Caulfield Co. liave  on exhibition a display of flour and  hardware that shows what we can  do without reciprocity.  Mr. Pannell of Midway has on  exhibition an orphan fawn, and a  machine that will divorce cream  and milk with ease and comfort;  also a pump that will lift water by  blowing your breath against the  handle.  The exhibit of tobacco by Joe  Duhamel plainly shows that Midway has more resources than coal.  The vegetables are ono of the  features of the show. No better  potatoes wero ever seen in Ireland  would cause a commotion if shown  in Germany. The vegetables are  a credit to the growers, and should  be a source of pride to the district.  The fair is a grand success. The  writer saw the first fairs held in  Spokane, Nelson and other places  and noiie of them were equal to the  initial exhibition in Canada's red  metal metropolis. It must be a  source of great pleasure to C. .0.  Tilley, the manager and secretay.  It has been an uphill fight for him  to bring our first fair to a successfully finish, and he has done his  work nobly. The thanks of the  community are due Mr. Tilley and  all those who' aided him to make  our first fair something of which  every resident in the" Boundary  district should be justly proud.

Nothing   is   so  porous   as irapecc'ibilifcy.    I   was  never warmed toward old ' Pythagoras until I mado a curious discovery.    I knew that he was called  "the   first philosopher,"   that  ho  converted tho inhabitants of a great  city from habits of debauchery and  luxury to virtue and sobriety, and  that all together he had the reputation of being ono of the world's  wisest men: but I never grew to  love him, until I found out that he  had strictly enjoined upon liis disciples that they should   not   eat  beans, and that so greatly did he  hate beans that he chose  rather  to be killed by his pursuers than f;o  make his escape through a bean  field.

OUR NATAL DAY  TnE Summerland Review remarks that it is better to trust a  judge who loves apples moro than  he does bear meat.  The editor of the White Horse  Star says that when he writes copy  for his paper he takes his typewriter on his knee. He does not  give the girl's name,  It is just 18 years ago this morning since Tho Ledge was born in  Nakusp.    Since that time it has  had five homes, and a career never  dull,  although at times somewhat  chequered.    It is a long time to  run a paper in the solid west without freezing your pedal extremities,  or being moro or less gently assisted  over the great divide by the indignant multitude. . However we are  still  breathing   tho ozone of this,  mundane sphere,   although   John steamers  Houston  and  a few more of the J North,  old-timers have gone ahead to look  up a location  for us in the camp  where the angels play football with  The Peace River  Talking about the Peace River  country to a Province man Major  McGeo says:  "The great scenic water route of  Canada will in a few years be the  [Summer route now employed in  reaching the mouth of the McKenzie river from Athabasca Landing," said Major McGee, in extolling tho beauties of the Northern  waterways. "Such a river and  lake route will embrace Athabasca  river from the Landing to Athabasca lake; Slave river to Great  Slave lake; McKenzie river to its  mouth, thence to Fort McPherson,  the most northerly post of the  Hudson's Bay Company. Fort  McPherson is situated on the Peel  river.' The far-famed St Lawrence  route   does   not   equal   this   new  was going on.    Cities like Rio de  Janeiro and Buenos   Ayres were  experiencing a growth and  expansion besides wliich,   even  that of  Canada was small.   The population  of the capital of the Argentine was  growing at the rate of 5,000 per  week, and in one year in that city  alone 35,000   houses were   built.  The wealth of the city and  the  tributary country was illustrated  by the size and magnificence of  the public    buildings.    A   music  ball, worth ������12,000,000, a church  worth 815,000,000,    a   clubhouse  costing 84,500;000 with pictures on  the wall worth 8500,000, and the  entrance fee to'  which was $150  gave some indication of the wealth  and: magnificence of the city.  Yet South America was a great  empty land only a small portion of  which had been brought under the  plough. In the Amazon valley  which contained about 2,500,000  square miles, but 500 acres were  cultivated. Yet, in spite of this  tho state of Argentine alone had  exported in one year 0,000,000 tons  of agricultural produce and bought  89,000,000 worth of farm implements.  South America was pre-eminently,- said  the speaker,   a land   of  horses and cattle, containing moro  than the rest of the world put together.    Tho Argentine contained  more cattle than any other country  in the world today.    In one year  in that country 10,000,000 horses  were killed for their hides.    Horses  were one of the most common commodities selling for   $1   a  piece.  Even beggars rode on  horseback.  Mr. Ray described at some length  the Argentine "Gaucho" or cowboy at once tlio  most   religious,  deceitful, .murderous,   treacherous  and immoral of people.    Eighty-  five per cent, of the children born  amongst thorn  were illegitimate;  murders were of every day occurrence; lying and stealing a part of  their very  fibre.    Yet  they were  fearless   horsemen  and   the most  daring having many splendid qualities to offset their vices.  H. W. Farmer & Co.,  REAL ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B. C.

A REAL BEAR STORY  David MacKay is now propri-  ��������� ctor of the St. Francis hotel in  Vancouver; but years ago he was a  C.P.R. Conductor in the mountains, and took the Van Home  party through to the sea in 1887.  "When I first met Dave he was  running a train between Nakusp  and Sandon in' the early days of the  Slocan. Although a native of  Nova Scotia ho loved a gun more  than a fishing rod, and always had  his trusty rifle cached somewhere  on the train for 10 years ago game  was thicker along tho N. & S.  railway than clams in Vancouver.  I   was a frequent   passenger   on  firma we might say that when this  paper first saw the light Nakusp  was a warm town,   and had four  policeman.    It also, had a host of  energetic citizens like Dan Dunn,  Four Flush Jack, Big May, Silver  Tip,  Wildcat, Slivers, Blue Pete,  Tinhorn Mike, Charley Diamond,  and others.    Some of these  have  since   crept beneath the ' daisies,  and the balance have gone else-  where,for none but the good nowlive  in old Nakusp.    Those early days  were. stirring and full of interest,  so little wonder that we oft are  fain to grasp the hand of Time and  turn back the universe to'93, so  that once' more   we could shake  hands with Dan McGillvray.    Dan  gave  us $900 to start this erratic  journal in Nakusp.  IT DOES EXIST  ' 'The Pioneer has found it at  last, in spiteof Col. Lowery's denial of its existence.    A picture  postcard arrived here tho other  day from Hell.    It was somewhat of a shock to us as we al-'  ways   considered   we havo   no  friends residing thore.    It seems  a nice looking place and is situated on the coast of Norway.  Martin Sortomme, a former resident of Phoenix is spending his  vacation thero.''   D-   _...    The Pioneer is mistaken for wo  Dave's train, and one day the two once know a town in Texas of that  of us captured a pair of eagles near  Roseberry.    At another time I was  sitting in the passenger coach just  as the train was pulling into the  suburbs of Nakusp when I felt the  brakes   go iuto   emergency   and  heard a rifle shot.   I was sure that  the train was being held up, and  carolesely I threw a package containing  $100,000   in   crisp  bank  notes onto the next seat and rushed  for the baggage car.    In this way  I expected to fool the robbers and  save my roll.    When I got to the  front end of the train I found that  Dave1had shot a 300 pound bear  from the side door of the express  car,   and had   put on   the air so  name, and, then there was some of  it in Canada when the Sun crossed  the line last month.

Some oil drilling and  mining operations have met with  great success, and the city engineer  of Edmonton is experimenting with  20 tons of asphalt from  the Athabasca country,  the material to bo  utilized in street paving during the  fall.    We saw along the Athabasca  a coal seam tbat has been burning  for at   least one  hundred years.  Century-old records make mention  of this same coal deposit being in  flames.  "From an agricultural standpoint, the valley of the Peace is a  country of as yet unknown possibilities. The summer weather is  preferable to that of the prairie  provinces, and tempering Chinook  winds makes the winter less to be  dreaded than the same season  would be at Edmonton. Natives  winter their cattle with impunity  in such valleys as Pounce Coupe  and Grand Prairie. A railway  will be built before long from  Edmonton to Fort McMnrray,  bringing civilization into tho last  preserves of tho Hudson's Bay  Company.

Mr. Croll  has spent several   weeks   in   the  Rockies sketching scenes along the  lines of the Canadian Pacific Rail-  I way and he is enthusiastic over the  beauty   of the mountains.   Stopping over at Duluth on  his way  back to Broadway, Mr.   Croll was  interviewed by a paper of that city.  "It is a beautiful country" said  Mr. Croll, "and there are boundless opportunities for the photographer and the artist to get into  close touch with Nature.    Even if  the artist never leaves the line of  the C.P.R., there is plenty of magnificent scenery to satisfy even the  most ardent seeker of beauty."  Mr. Croll predicted a-big inroad  of American tourists into the Canadian Rockies next year.

Yowell said that the  night he spanked his wife he asked  her repeatedly to refrain from her  hurricane of words, but the verbal  storm lasted for four hours and he  was unable to get a wink of sleep  in that time.

Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound  Disturb his solitude profound,  Here let him lie in calm repose,  Unsought except by men he owes.  And when he dies, go plant Him deep  That nothing may disturb his sleep,  Where no rude clamor may dispel  That quiet that he loved so well. ,  And that the world may know its loss  Place on a stone a wreath of moss,  And on a stone above "Here lies  A fossil, who did not advertise."

POULTRY  The  display  of  poultry  at our  first annual fair was certainly  far  in advance of all expectations both | next year  in number of entries and  tho very  high quality of the exhibits. Judge  Will Purdy of Ferry, Wash., who  placed  the awards, was delighted  with   the   display.      Mr.   Purdy,  prior   to   coining 'to   the   United  States, had the honor of judging  exhibits   of   the   Queen   Mother  Alexandra, in England, at Church  Gresley, Derbyshire, and Newport,  Pagnell,  Shropshire.    Next week  Judge   Purdy   goes   to   Chesaw,  "Wash., to act as judge of poultry,  aud has further engagements   at  Astoria,   Ore.;  Los   Angeles  and  Santa Barbara, Cal., at the coming  winter shows.  Wyandottes were a nice display,  Mr. Wheeler of Grand Forks, taking the leading prizes. W. J. Mc-  Callum won all prizes on Silver  Pencils with the Grand Forks  prize birds/ Barred Plymouth  Rocks  were very fine indeed, W.  J. Morrison of Grand' Forks,  had  a fine display.    W. J. Methot of  ilyncaster, got the best of it with  S. C. Rhode Island Reds, winning  three  firsts  and  silver  medal for  "foest six  birds bred in B. C.    Mr.  Morrison and E J.Davies of Grand  Forks, divided the honors in R. C.  Rhode Island Reds, with very fioe  specimens, trae to color and feather.  E. J. Cartier of the Windsor hotel,  had a large and varied display for  which  he will  require   his automobile to carry away the  number  of ribbons his pets  won  for him.  Sater & Johns were  large exhibitors, having an extra good exhibit  of Pit games, golden pheasants and  and  Reds,   with  which they won  many riboons.  Tlie cream of tlie poultry show  Jay in  the Orpington classes.    In  the buff classes, J. ;T. Nopp, of  Chesaw, won all firsts'* on young  birds, repeating his .Grand Forks  victory, whilst in the black classes  the quality was still higher. Here  for tho first time Mr. Nopp's great  prize-winning hen, Lady May,  winner of the two silver cups at  Soattle; two silver cups at Puy-  allup, Wash.; two silver cups at  Calgary, Alta.; first prize in her  class and one of a pen that captured the cup for the best pen in  the show at Grand Forks last week;  here she went down in defeat to  two of her yard mates. Mr. Nopp  also wins with his magnificent  black Orpington cockerel, which,  although only live months old,  .weighs 91bs. 34oz, first prize in his  class and the silver challenge cup  for the best individual bird in the  entire show. Leghorns were notable for the high quality of the  birds. T. Bowen of Grand Forks,  winning four first prizes. His  first prize cock bird is reputed to  have cost ������75 iu New York, after  after having succeeded in winning  second prize .at tho New York  poultry show. A novelty in tho  duck classes was tho buff Orpington  ducks exhibited by Mrs. Nopp of  Chesaw. This breed is a recent  importation from England and are  found to be a very valuable' acquisition to the feathered tribe of the  Northwest. They are beautiful  and large framed birds carrying  lots of fine juicy meat.  The Association is much elated  with the fine showing made at this  its first exhibition and will make  strenuous efforts to outdo itself  by offering more valu-  ble prizes aud a more extensive  classification. There were 264  exhibits in the poultry section.  Cartier  J. Cartier  Sparrow    Parrot,  White S. C. Leghorns, T.  Bowen,  three prizes; D. Manly, five...  Black Orpingtons, J. T.

The Great Road  Not for years has the Canadian  Pacific Railway had so many miles  of new track under construction as  they have this year.    New lines  are being built practically all over  Western Canada, and hundreds of  gangs of track builders are at work  in    the   variaus   provinces.'  The  C.P.R's net wcrk of new lines is  rapidly extending into now districts  and as fast as they are built they  are being opened for traffic.    Since  the middle of June live or six new  services   have   been   inaugurated,  and it is stated that there is several  other lines which will be carrying  regular trains  before  the end of  November.    These new lines are'  among the greatest inducements to  new settlers to open  up new districts,  as when  the   services are  established   they have   transportation  facilities   for   getting   their  produce to the  markets.    For the  incoming settler of next year it is  stated that the C.P.R. will rush to  completion nearly 400 miles of new  Hues in Alberta and Saskatchewan.  These   lines   include    that   from  Moose Jaw southwest,   35 miles;  Kerrobert    northeast,    25   miles;  Weyburn    branch   extension,    21  miles; Estevan   branch,   55  miles;  Swift Current southeast, 45 miles;  Swift Current northwest, 35 miles:  Wilkie northwest, 32 miles; Wilkie  southeast,.   31    miles;    Kininvie^  branch extension, 37 miles; Bassano  to Kininvic Jet., 36 miles, and the  Kipp branch extension, 27'' miles.  THE BABIES  The baby show  was  a drawing  card,   and   passed   away   without  ^i^.^^Si8^^^^^^  causing a riot. Miss Black, a professional nurse from Vancouver,  acted as judge and performed her  perilous duty in a graceful manner.  Fourteen beautiful infants were  entered for competition and every  one should have received a first  prize. The first prize of $20, given  by A. S. Black, was won by baby  Cartier; the second prize of $10,  by baby McKay; the third prize of  $5, by baby Davidson; and tho  fourth prize of $2.'50, by baby  Nankervis. The last three prizes  were given by J. R. Jackson, M.  P. P.  His Other Eye  Some thirty-five years ago in one  of the placer mining camps established on the western slope of the  Sierra Nevada range of mountains,  a   wandering  stranger   appeared.  He was greeted with the customary  civilities at the saloon, which as  usual was the headquarters for all  the social or business enterprizes.  This stranger was a quiet,  civil  spoken,   rather   pleasant  sort of  chap,    carrying    one   ^noticeable  mark, which was the total blindness of one eye.    Along  in   the  evening a game of poker was organized in which the stranger readily joined.   After several hours of  play  the resident  members   were  completely cleaned out of cash by  the apparently   miraculous   luck,  or  skill   of   their   visitor.   Then  came a pause when the saloon proprietor furnished a  midnight supper.    The players having renewed  financial arrangements, the saloon  keeper in the mildest way possible,  made the following speech.    "Now  boys  we'll   start   in  for  another  game and we'll play her on the  NOTICE  To '  Philip D. Stanhope,vot .Similkameen Division  of Yale District, Rancher.

The delicacy displayed in avoiding personality was  a tribute to the inherent Chester-  fleldian qualities of the spokesman,  and well illustrates the latent sense  of humor prevalent in Mining  camps at that time.  Then there is tho case of Gns, a  German, an imaginary miner who  was discovered by a friend drilling  into barren-country rock near the  edge of a perpendicular precipice  some two hundred feet from the  bottom. When questioned as to  what on earth he was doing there,  andjwbatkind of a mine he expected  to develop, Gus replied, "Veil  Oscar, dis may not be such a h���������1  of a mine but I tell, you one ding,  Oscar may be I have got the finest  dump in'tho" United States.   Ain't  it?" ,;.       .   Greatest Gold Mine  The Homestake gold mine, located at Lead, near Deadwood in  the Black Hills of South Dakota, is  the largest gold mining proposition  upon the American continent.  The Homestake lead was opened  soon after the discovery of gold in  the Black Hills and the mine has  been in constant operation since  1876.   The   ore  is   low   grade,  yielding on the average not more  than 83 a ton, but the supply of it  is so vast, and is so easily worked  that it is of inestimable value.   All  of the scientific processes are employed in extracting the gold, for  the ore is both free and refractory.  Three thousand men are employed in and about the mine.    There  are more than 50 miles of railway  underground.   The lead has been  prospected to a depth of 3,000 feet  and is worked to 1,500 feet.   Apparently the supply is inexhaustible, the engineering force asserting  that material for 40 years of work  at the present rate is already block-  The Platinum Goldfields Co., is  sinking a shaft on its placer ground  at the forks of the Tularaeen and  Similkameen rivers.  About 200 tons of coal are being  daily shipped by the Princeton  Coal Co.  Colonel Robert Stevenson is looking for a mineral location, that he  found 40 years ago in the Hope  mountains.  The Mark Mineral Claims, situated on Trout Creek in the  Okanagan, is being developed, and  there is every indication of its be-'  coming a very valuable mine.  Assays from this property have  been 100 ozs. silver, 50 per cent,  lead, 1 to 2 per cent, copper and  85 gold.  The California mine near New  Denver shipped a carload of ore  last month.  Last week in tho Crow's Nest  Pass, about 300 men wero at work  in the coal mines at Frank, Blairmore, Burmis, Passburgand Police  Flas. It is thought that the  strike will be over this month.  Angus McDonald   and  eon  returned this week from the Slocan  district, where they have been doing some developing work on their  claims.   They are greatly pleased  at the latest showing on their property which is  situated about four  miles from Sandon and a railway.  The claims which are known as the  Christina group adjoins the Richmond-Eureka, and also a part of  the Slocan Star, sold this summer  this summer  for  $600,000.   The  development on the property include a 45 foot tunnel, with ores in  various places.    On the Ontario a  tunnel has been driven 50 feet, and  a winzo sunk 45 feet, at the bottom  of which eight inches of carbonate  ore   was   encountered.   On    the  Christina a tunnel has been driven  200 feet, and assays from this property ran about 6150 per ton  in  silver and lead.���������Phoenix Pioneer.  A GREAT BLAST  Yesterday in the Mother Lode  mine, 2,500 14 foot holes were  blasted at once with over 11 tons  of dynamite, set off by electricity,  breaking down over 100,000 tons  of ore.

When George Stephen, the son of a poor carpenter in the small Scotch  village of Dufftown was born in 1829,,the outlook for a great success seemed  surely dim and improbable. When, after completing the course at the littlo  parish school he undertook to earn his living as herd-hoy on the minister's  farm in the glen, no vision came to him of the time when he would be known  os a Lord, high in the councils of State, the friend of the King and the benefactor of his people. Then came an uncontrollable desire to see the larger  world, and as an apprentice In the drapery trade he went to.Aberdeen, and  later to Glasgow and London. In 1850 he left England for Canada, where  he engaged in the woolen business, and in a few years was well on the high  road to prosperity.  In Canada he found his cousin, Donald Smith, later Lord Strathcona, and  the two Highlanders who had played together as boys, joined Issues, and soon,  like the meeting of two brooks, their united efforts flowed In one channel.  Both were directors in the Bank of Montreal, both are interested in railways,  and both have achieved fame as philanthropists, statesmen, art connoisseurs  and In diplomatic circles. In 1875 Lord.Mount Stephen joined a syndicate  for purchasing the bonds of the Dutch'stockholders of the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, which, when completed, controlled the Northwest of Canada.  When British Columbia entered the Dominion if was with the understanding that the Government would build a railroad across the continent.  The Government failed sadly in its plans; In 1880,-ono year'before the entire road should have been ready, only 700 of-its nearly 3,000 miles woro completed. Chaos prevailed and collapse was Imminent. Then Lords Mount  Stephen and Strathcona came forward and for a subsidy of $25,000,000, full  title to the section already built, and a land grant of twenty-flvo million  acres���������a territory as large as Ireland iand Wales���������they promised to join tho  two oceans within eleven years. They accomplished thd task ln five. Lord  Mount Stephen was made a baronet ln 1886 and fivo years later was raised  to tho peerage with his present tltlo, which was taken from a mountain near  the railroad that his onergy and onterpriBe helped to croato. >.
