On Labor Day the Grand Forks  team came over and, after a keenly  fought game,-defeated us bv the  narrow margin of three runs. "The  return maich was to have been  played in Grand Forks, but. the  venue was eventually changed to  the classic precincts of Greenwood,  and on Sunday last the final struggle, took place.  We got together a really good  aggregation of '-! flannelled fools,"  as Kipling facetiously styles them,  and went forth eager for the fray,  filled with an ardor and determination to retrieve our lost laurels.  The result, however, should, we  regret to have to state,   really be  placed under the heading of obituary notices.    Yet  we certainly'deserved our fate���������at least that is  the   opinion    of   everyone,   more  especially  of   the   captious   critic  who  from  the  grand  stand most  ably and audibly  criticized -everyone from the umpires downwards.  Had-we only consulted him how  different would h������:vo been the re-  ���������snli*.    Instead of frantically flagellating the air in  a vl:in  endeavor  to   hit   the elusive .--p'scroid,   we  should have smote the  ball before  it   broke. - And   then,  -what   on  earth did one of us want to hit that  ball right Into the hands of one of  discontinue,].    At the last session  of   the   Dominion   parliament,'   a  subsidy of ������3,500 per   mile   was  granted for the  building of a railroad from (Vim fco Penticton and  the same for one from'Penticton  to Nicola,     flic proposed railway  from. Mid way* to  Vernon carries a  subsidy, ami it is believed that the  C. P. K. Will utilize a portion of  this- route,   that  from  Midway to  Beaverdell  and  Carmi,   and then  make connections with  Nicola via  Penticton, thus opening up an excellent mining section, and giving  the company a much shorter route  to the cojisfc.  A large scow has been iu course  of construction at Okanagan Landing all summer aud  another has  been    roofed    in.      Jfc    wm   jirst  thought   that   the company   purposed putting in slips  at  the various places of call  for  their steamers along the lake and convey cars  by scow to those points and thus  simplify shipping,  but  as  no slips  are yet in sight and  the  shipment  of fruit is well   under  way, one is  forced to believe that there is some  other object in view.    Such scows  would come in  very handy in conveying construction material down  the lake to this  point.    When actual   construction   does  begin,   it  will doubtless start  from the three  points,   Midway,    Penticton    and  Nicola, and will be rushed to completion in short order.  The object in working so quietly  is doubt-less to avoid attracting the  attention of the Great Northern,  which is slowly extending its line  up the Similkameen to Princeton,  an object point for a branch of the  C. P. li, from Aspen Grove, south  of Nicola.���������Penticton Press.  I Western Float!  When ycu want a monument or  headstone, write to the Kootenay  Marble Works, Nelson, B. C.       *  Nelson,   B.

On  Monday a number of the gang  with a packtrain were iu Penticton  for supplies, but would give no information as to tho object the party  has in view. The most profound  secrecy i.s maintained, and the men  themselves merely know that thoy  are working for the chief engineer.  A party of C.   P.   Ii.  engineers  Midway and. Vernon.  It is understood that English  capital is to be provided for the  building of the Midway and Vernon railway, a proposed air line of  eighty miles to connect the boundary and Okanagan districts/  The charter is owned by Greenwood parties, aud construction  work was started three years ago.  In. all twenty miles of grading west  from Midway have been completed.  Work was discontinued owing to a  disagreement ( with a New York  syndicate which had arranged to j  finance the proposition.  Ralph Smailes, who is interested  in the charter, made arrangements  in New York a few weeks ago for  ali the capital needed to link Vernon   with   Midway.    During   his  stay there he closed a deal  with  the representatives of an  English  syndicate.    It is not unlikely that  construction work may  be  undertaken shortly.    The proposed railway will asceud_the valley of lhe  West  Fork  of  Kettle   river   nnd  crossing a low'divide at its  headwaters  mako the descent to Vernon  by  an   easy grade.    It   will  open up an  important  mining and  agricultural district.    Several high  grade mines along the  route now  transport their ores  forty miles in  sleighs in winter time and derive a  prolit,   the   values   per  ton  often  exceeding 8130 in silver and  gold,  net.  Mr. Smailes reached here yesterday from New York aud felt elated  over his success in piomoting the  enterprise after its various vicissitudes. A few years ago the provincial 'government held that- a  cash subsidy granted tho railway  had lapsed owiug to the failure ol  the promoters* to' carry out the  terms as regards construction. Subsequently a stated case was submitted to Chief Justice I fun ter,  who decided that the subsidy had  not- lapsed.

' Greeting So Cordial It Did Not Seem  Natural, and She Feels III at .Ease.  Old Man Goes Out and Comes Home  With a Whoop.  [Copyright, IMS, by T. C. McClure.]  J had not visited my son-in-law and  slaughter for three months when tho  feeling camo to mo tho other day that  Mr. Bowser was acting up and that my  presence was required. Without giving 'tho slightest warning I packed my  trunk and took the train and arrived  nt 7 o'clock In the evening.  I expected to find my ilaugliter in  hod with sick headache and Mr. Bowser hammering and snwiii,; nnd pound-  lug and stopping now and then to toll  her that if she would persist in going  barefoot in the hack yard she must  not expect him to put himself out for  her headaches.  ��������� I could almost hoar him whistle and  King, and I had a vision of liim trying  ti lire escape from tho window and  testing tho burglar alarm.  As 1 drew near tho house I thought 1  could bear him shouting to tlie cook to  boil two eggs for Mrs. Bowser's dinner and following that with the statement that boiled eggs were a sure cure  for any kind of headaches.  As I softly opened the front door I  had no doubt that I would catch him  drumming on tho piano and singing  some song at tho top of his voice and  that I should have him by the ear tha  next moment.  Everything  Was Quiet.  I was altogether wrong.   Mr. Bowser  and his wife were in the sitting room  ''IT  WOULD  SEEM  HOMELIKE TO HAYI* A  COW AJlOUND."  /���������laying cards, and sho had just won  her fifth successive game without hii  ���������having charged her with being a fraud  and a swindler, no was the first to  see me, and with "There is our dear  'mother!" he came running down the  hail to greet me���������he that hardly thrco  months ago referred to me as "that  old cat!" My daughter was well and  looking happy, and it is not necessary  lo say that I was taken aback.  ��������� I waited for Mr. Bowser to ask "why  in the devil I camo," as he did last  time, but he rubbed his hands aud  smiled and said he was awfully glad to  see mc. I thought to start him off by  saying that I had come down to  straighten him out, but he only rubbed  and smiled tho more. lie ran down to  ���������the kitchen and told the cook to set  me out the best in the house, and as  lie returned ho patted me on the shoulder and joyously said:  ��������� "Why, mother, you are looking as  young and lively as a two-year-old  colt!   No ono would take you for a day  ��������� over forty."  ; A few brief weeks before when the  cook had asked him my age he had giv-  .on a snort of contempt and replied that  I would never sec ninety again.  For the next hoar I kept looking at  Sarah and expecting her to burst out  crying, but she did nothing of the kind.  It was not until I had mado an excuse  to send Mr. Bowser to the drug store  that I could get a word with her In  private. Then sho Informed me that  he bad come home with one of his  "spells" on that husbands get about  once in three months and that it might  ���������last a day or two. Sho had taken him  in hand soon after he came home, but  'had made no impression.  | She bad shown him the gas bill.  j She had told him the range coal was  out. V  | She had said that one of the water  pipes was leaking.  , Sho had said the cook wanted more  [wages.  ��������� She had asked for money to buy hosiery.  ; He had passed through each nnd every crisis ,witb the utmost serenity and  had even let her beat hlin in euchre  'without smashing up the furniture.  ' When n husband gets such n spell on  there is no knowing how It will turn  out. He may give his wife ?20 for a  'new hat or he may get out of bed at  linldulght nnd chop her up with the ax  land plead temporary insanity. I told  Sarah that I would take Mr. Bowser  in hand and try to restore the natural  order of things, nnd when he returned  from the store I was ready for him.  Arter he had kissed mo again and reiterated that I was getting my youth  back I said:  ��������� "Samuel, Sarah tolls mo that y������n aro  getting ready to make garden again  this year."

"Yes, mother, I am, and I will never  attend another meeting of the club.  They got me in under pretense that  President Roosevelt was a member  and then stood mo on my head and  poured ice water down my back."  I wasn't getting along as well as I  expected and saw that I must adopt  more heroic remedies. Therefore,  after a minute,* I said:  "I learn that you aro thinking of  writing a play?"  "Yes; I have had some talk with  Sarah about "it, but nothing definite  has been arrived at. I believe that I  could write a  successful  piny."'  "Well, I don't. I don't believe you  could come within <!00 miles of it.  You have got no more dramatic talent  about you thtui nn old goat."  "Is that your belief, mother?" he  asked.  "Certainly It is."  "Then I will throw the idea overbonrd.  I thought I was brimful of dramatic  talent, but if you say not then that  settles it. IIow glad I am that you  came to toll me this before I had gone  ahead with the work!"  "And Sarah says that you aro scribbling away at what you call a poem  and you hope to startle the world with  It   Is this a fact?"  Derides His Ability.  "Why, I am scribbling n little on a  poem."  "Then you stop scribbling. It's nil  nonsense. You can no more write a  poem than a bullfrog can play the  jewsharp."  "Really, mother?"  "Of course you can't. You had bettor spend your time hunting for mouse  holes. Are you going out anywhere tonight?"  "No, mother darling. I am going to  stay right here and entertain you."  "You might go to your bowling club,"  I suggested, hoping to get him out of  the way for a couple of hours."   '  "I have resigned from it. I thought  it wasn't right for me to run out nights  nnd leave Sarah alone."  Then in desperation I asked him to  go to a saloon and get me a bottle of  beer and not to hurry back with it. He  went, and it was two hours before he  returned. Wo heard him whoop as he  entered the gate, and when I ran down  and let him in it was with a positive  relief that I saw him stagger back to  the wall and, after winking and blinking for a moment, heard him exclaim:  "Shay, now, but who in thunder invited, you to come down here?

Indian Detective Trick;  A very old Indian detective trick  played its part in the arrest of the  Bengali youth Khurdiram Bose, who  throw the bomb which killed Mrs.  and Miss Kennedy at Muzufferpore.'  He was seated in. the railway station at Waini, some 20 miles from  the scene of the crime, and was seat  ing, a meal of rice, when two con'-;  stables approached him. One of the  constables noticed that the youth's'  saliva had ceased to flow, apparently  through fright at the sudden appearance of the policemen; and that, in  spite of his nonchalant air; ,he was  unable to continue his meal. The  constable toyed with his man for a  while, and then, having his suspicions  confirmed, seized him before he could  fire tho revolver with which he was  trying to shoot himself. This svstem  of detection, il is stated, is traditional  among the Indian-police.  A suspected person- will bo placed  ivMi' others and a native inspector  will mutter some gibberish over an  old four-cornered rupee. Having thus  worked upon the fears of his auditors  he will give each of them a handful  of rice and instruct them to eat it  as- fast as they can. The guilty one,,  It is averred, will be unable to eat.  and the strike of the sr-Hynry glands  Is regarded as furnishing a prima  facie case  for arrest.  X,  Insect  Hypnotism.

ANCIENT'BABVLDN.    a  St Was Only a Village Compared With  Modern London.

In its report, just published It states  that practically the whole area ��������� of  the city has now been laid bare and  the- foundations of the inclosing wall  traced throughout its entire length.  The space occupied by tho city was  barely one square mile as compared  with London's seventy, and the buildings were plain, unpretentious structures of sun dried bricks. The famous  wall was about thirty fc/*t high by  four miles long nnd wa3 pierced bj  four gates.  - Herodotus made this same wall fifty  miles long and a hundred feet high,  with 100 gates. But then -these old  historiansv-werc prone to exaggeration.  They gave the world to understand,  for Instauce, that the Colossus -of  Rhodes bestrode the harbor with its  feet so wide apart that an hour's hard  rowing was necessary In order to pass  from one to the other. As a matter of  fact, the statue was not a striding one, .  and its height was 120 feet only as  compared with the 150 feet of fhe  statue of Liberty which dominates  New York harbor.

The  closer to this formation a human being  comes the' more monkey-like intelligence and character he is apt to have.

Cures    Garget  HARVARD'S CRIMSON:  The Incident Thst Gave the University  I Its Color.  ! Although President Eliot's opposition  to modem college football is well  known, he has always been interested  in sane athletics and during his undergraduate days himself participated in  college sports. Many a crew Iias listened to his.interesting experiences of  those days when Harvard pulled eight  oars and Yale six, a time allowance  usually being given for the difference,  and when the crew met professionals  and raced for prize money which got  the crew cut flf debt But all of this  was part of his' desire to keep up his  physical, mental and moral health. He  developed no one set of muscles out of  .all proportion to another, and unquestionably he believed then, as now, in a  sound mind and a sound body. ^  He likes to tell of thp origin of Harvard's "crimson." In 1S58 the first  Harvard rowing shell was put on the  water. Three men, of whom Alexander  Agassiz was one, got together and  bought it.  "We had not paid for the boat," said  President Eliot when asked nbout this,  "and we depended on our first prize  money to pay for It Well, the day before the race it appeared that there  were to be thirteen or fourteen boats  in the race, and wo said to each other,  'now are our friends going to know us  In .the regatta?'

' It is a peculiar circumstance that  hardened and trained troops will go  through a long fight surrounded by  all the horrors that are inseparable  from war without-flinching and with  the utmost apparent callousness and  tho samo meu will be struck terrified  by a single trifling incident.  Every war of any importance, particularly wars * between civilized nations, is prolific in incidents of trivial  character in themselves, but so unusual and unnatural that thoy appeal  to the natural instinctive horror'of  men more suddenly and intensely than  "perhaps tho main terrors of days of  carnage. Such an incident is the one,  for example, which occurred at_ the  battle of Worth, In the early days of  tho Franco-Prussian war.  J* the heat of the _ great battle a  wing of tho Prussian army was charged by the regiments of French cuirassiers iu tho hope of turning the wing  and facilitating the falling back of the  French Infantry. But the cuirassiers  were driven buck by the unflinching  Prussians. Again the cuirassiers  charged, and again they were driven  back by the withering Ore.  For a third time they came down  again, and as the enemy'waited for  them to draw nearer a horrible, blood  freezing terror seized the Prussians,  and for the moment it looked as if  they would "turn and fly or be cut  down without defending themselves.  But in a moment they bad pulled  themselves together and beaten back  for the third and last time the gallant  cuirassiers.  The sight that terrified the Prussians  appears nothing very much In black  and white. It was a regiment of cuirassiers'led at a dashing rate toward  them by a headless officer sitting upright in his saddle and apparently encouraging his men. It was no less  a person than Futzum de Lascarre of  the Third regimeut of cuirassiers,  whose head had been carried completely off his shoulders as the troop  broke Into the third desperate charge  by a cannon ball, which aiso took off  another officer's hand and cut tho  bugler in two.  ���������  It is remarkable and singular that"at  the battle of Forbach, which took  place the same clay as Worth, a very  similar incident occurred and did more  to shake the nerves of the Germans  than hours of roaring cannon and  fighting had done.  While a regiment of Prussian infantry were standing In reserve watching  the fight as well as they could from  their position of shelter a charger belonging to a French dragoon regiment,  oue which was practically destroyed in  the battle, galloped right into the midst  of .the men, who rushed to arrest it  and immediately fell back in alarm,  for swinging to the bridle was the  whole left arm of the charger's rider,  the fingers of the hand firmly grasping  the reins. Tho ana appeared to have  been severed a few inches below the  shoulder and was certainly that of an  officer, but who the officer was has  never been satisfactorily established.  So moved were the hardened men of  battle at tho horrible sight that no one  would touch the horse, and the animal  was allowed to gallop off to be killed a  few nimutc? later in crossing before  some Prussian guns. Thrilling as the  Incident was, many of the brave fel;  lows who witnessed it declared that  their first almost irresistible, Impulse  was to throw down their arms and  bolt. Yet it was with the help of just  such men that General von Goben  routed the French that memorable day  in August. 1S70.  It is a well known fact that the  finest and bravest troops the world can  | produce have no immunity from that  strange and mysterious madness known  to military history as "war panic." A  heavy war, frequent sanguinary engagements, night marches and surprises sometimes play havoc with soldiers' nervous systems and render  them more like high spirited colts than  men who have taken the field prepared  to suffer Immeasurable horrors and  take death cheerfully.  During the peninsular war two British regiments, the very pick of the  army and seasoned veterans, were  marching along In good order when a  rumor ran down the lines that the enemy was at hand. The next moment  the line of orderly soldiers was changed  Into an elongated mob of armed men  throwing away arms, baggage and all  they carried, running away in every  direction, blind terror In their hearts,  their faces blanched and their ears  deaf to the thundered commands of  their officers.  For the moment they knew but one  sentiment, one emotion, a sudden, passionate, blind terror, and they fled  without thinking whether they were  running Into the arms of the thing  they dreaded or not It was a terror  that was madness, and only its madness redeems It from dishonor. If  anything were necessary to demon-  Rtrato the unnaluraluess of the panic  it would be done by the grand fact that  the moment it became known that the  fnemy was really at hand the men Instantly fell in and showed the utmost  eagerness to attack.  j-Jticb war panics are 'mysteries.

If I were asked to describe India the  Erst remark that would spring from  my lips would  be,  "It is' a land of  interest in that? I mean has the pub  lie in general no interest in the forestry question? It seems to me they  have. Everybody must have an interest in it, because it touches his  pocket.'  "There is another point I wish to  make, namely, that, while before 1899  prices wont up and down from year  to year, but on the whole remained  level, from the year 18E9 prices of all  grades .of wood began an upward  course. What is the reason?, . Tho  explanation is simple. In 1899 tlie  data collected by the United States  Census regarding supply and demand  of forest products became known,  which showed that in predicting this  timber famine wo wore not so very  far, out of the way.  "Not supply and demand, but knowledge of supply and demand makes  prices, and the trouble has boon in  the past the absence of knowledge as  to our timber resources, and this lacl  The Hindoos pretend to have 333,000,-  000 gods, and these are represented by  Innumerable idols, so that we are quite  bewildered with the thought of taking,  the census of the Idols of India. The  population of the whole Indian empire  Is now about 300,000,000, and possibly  the country contains ten times as many  idols as people.  Benares is the great center of the  Idol making business, though in all  parts of India tho trade flourishes.

Of course a brond forehead may be  part of a weak face, and a weak chin  and mouth v >)l naturally give a truer  impression of character than even a  combination of a narrow forehead  with an otherwise strong face.  If there is quite a perceptible bulge  of the eyebrow's, combined with a high  forehead, the sign is of a calm, cool,  deliberate thinker.  If with these eyebrows Is combined  a forehead that slopes gradually back,  a sensitive, poetic temperament is disclosed.

The ceremony  of "the giving of life," as it is called,  to the image is a very solemn affair,  nnd when it is done the idol is regarded as holy and must ever afterward bo  approached and treated with the utmost reverence.  Out of the many millions of so called  gods in India, all of whom are counted  worthy of worship, three are regarded  ns specially sacred and form the Hindoo triad or trinity. They are respectively Brahma, Vishnu and Siva.  Of those It is stated the second person of the trinity only has been represented on this earth by human incarnations. Through one or all of these  gods the Hindoos believe they may obtain salvation. Brahma represents the  way of salvation by wisdom, Vishnu  by faith and Siva by works. It is  immaterial which method is adopted,  as they all lead to the same1'goal.  Juggernaut is perhaps the most famous name among all the nindoo idols,  inasmuch as his fame has gone forth  Into every land. His temple is situated on the sandy shores of Orissa, washed by the wild waves of the bay of  Bengal. The worship of Juggernaut  dates back nearly 2.000 years, and  Orissa has been the holy land of tho  nindoos from that time till the present  day.  * Sir William Hunter, who was one of  the greatest authorities on things East  Indian, says in a wonderfully graphic  description of the temple of Juggernaut: "On the inhospitable sands of  Puri, a place of swamps and inundations, the HindooM-eligion and Hindoo  Biiperstitution have stood at bay for  eighteen centuries against the world.  Here is the national temple whither  the people flock to worship from every  province of India. There is the gate  of heaven whither thousands of pilgrims come to die, lulled to this last  sleep by the roar of tho eternal ocean."  Well, I saw on one occasion that  marvelous sight, the dragging cf Juggernaut's car and the cars of his  brother and sister. The three Idols  are inseparable, aud ugly things they  are, being nothing but huge logs of  wood coarsely fashioned into human  shape, but without arms or legs.  Juggernaut's car stands forty-one  feet high and has fourteen enormous  wheels. The other two cars are just  a little smaller. The great cars have  to be dragged a certain distauce���������half  ia mile or more from the temple���������and  the god will not allow horses or elephants to undertake the work, but  'calls upon his faithful worshipers to  'do it themselves. Immense ropes, or.  Irather, cables, are attached to the cars,  and at the word of command from tho  priests thousands of men and even  |women and children rush forward and  seize the ropes and range themselves  In order and the next moment nre  6training and pulling at the cumbersome conveyances, which at length  move with a heavy, croaking noise.  Never shall I forget the sight. The  iroad was filled with tens of thousand!*  of lookers-on, all wild with excitement,  and the fanatics who held the ropes  were dragging the cars along with  frenzied zeal. Every now and then  (here would be a stop that the men  .might rest.

It was past midnight when he went out  to mail them, and when he returned  and was undressing he paused in dismay, missing a check for a large sum  received during the day and taken  home with him. In vain was the house  ransacked at that late hour. He went  to bed convinced that the lost check  must be In the house. An hour later  he fell into uneasy slumber and beheld  as with his eyes of the flesh the pink  check curled about an area railing four  or five doors from his own house.  So real was the dream that the troubled man woke up, dressed and. slip-      No dead flies ,y-      about when WM.  ping down the .stairs into the street,   son's Fly Pads are used as directed,  walked along the sidewalk to a-spot  Small but Potent.���������Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are small, but they are  effective in action.

They  are   ��������� x  cowards and are the scavengers of the   of (her ^home in West Philadelphia  city.   It is said that scores of people  are bitten daily by the dogs of'Constantinople, but that a case of hydrophobia was never known there.  Three  centuries   ago   Nassuf   Pasha,   grand  viziei to Achmet III., transported all  the dogs to Asia and would have had  them' destroyed there, but the sultan,  on consulting tho mufti, was told that  every dog had a soul and consequently  forbade   such   wholesale   destruction.  After the slaughter of the janizaries  Mahmoud intended to get rid of them,  for he caused an immense number of  sausages (!)'to be made and, having  poisoned them, gave the dogs a feast.  Many thousands  were thus killed in  one day, but tho people murmured so  moch that he was afraid to begin a  second day's work, n* therefore order  ed them to be expelled to Asia, but the  order was very indifferently executed,  and In a short time the dogs were as  numerous as during the time of the  Janizaries.  s u popmauon      A little girl was playing with a girl  the vilest of   friend of her own age on the porch  '\.n 'elderly gentleman, her mother's  father, and an elderly lady, her father's mother, were sitting on the  porch talking pleasantly with each  other.

Of the many stories of the seemingly  unconscious heroism of Newfoundland  . dogs none is more interesting than the  one concerning  the noble dog  which  Morland afterward painted.  When William Phillips, bathing at  Portsmouth, ventured beyond his depth  and was drowning, two boatmen. Instead of setting out to his rescue, hag  gled about a reward from the bystanders, who were urging them to go to  Phillips' rescue. In the midst of the  controversy a Newfoundland dog  leaped into the water and brought the  exhausted bather to shore. Mr. Thil-  lips bought the dog from its owner, a  butcher, and yearly gave a festival in  honor of his rescuer.  It was for Mr. Phillips that Morland  painted the dog's picture, and Barto-  lozzi engraved it  Yellow Fever.  The first appearance of yellow fever  is said to have heen among the eol-  Idlers of Columbus In 1-105.  A-Dream Warning.  A strange story comes from Calabria.

There remains a  considerable stretch, however, yet  to be done on the reserve on this  side of the river.
