The excursion train, with about SO  of, the .representative business men  and newspaper men of West Kootenay  on board, rolled into Moyie City yesterday afternoon at two o'clock. The  train remained almost ah hour < and  the excursionists'were afforded an; opportunity to refresh themselves and  take a look about the town. The  party was in charge of F. W, Peters,,  the district freight agent, at Nelson.  It was first arranged to have the  train reach here at nine o'clock in the  morning and give the people an opportunity of seeing the mines,'but it  was delayed in leavjng Cranbrook and  this plan could-not be carried out.  The party had been as far east as  Fcrnie, the . town at the Crow's Nc'et  coalfields. These vast coal deposits  were inspected and tlien they returned*  to Cranbrook. The board of trade at  Cranbrook gave a banquet in their  honor'Wednesday evening which was  a most successful atYair.'  Among the prominent men in the  party were: C. 0. Lelonde, D. B.

At the upper edge of   the stamp   are  the   words   "CamulaA Postage,"  in   a  neat letter.' ' Underneath  tlie  map  is  placed "Xma's, 189S," so" that the date  of the inauguration of imperial  penny  postage''shall'be "made  a   matter  of  record.    On tlio. Iower corners are   figures '2. indicating the denomination of  the.stamp, and at  the   lower  edge  is  this suggestive passage; taken from the  words of one  of, our  patriotic  poets::  ���''we hold a   vaster   empire   than  lias  been."

It is now'given out as an absolute  certainty that a nigular passenger  train service will be inaugurated between Cranbrook.;aml;Kootenay within ten days.  II. T.

The report has been sent out that  the contract for the construction of the  so long talked of Nelson &, Bedlihglon  railway has 'been awarded to Messrs.  Foliet and Guthrie; ^the well known  railway 'builders, who have been in  this line-'of business in the Pacific  Northwest for many jears. Together  they make an exceedingly strong combination, The price is not made pub-  he, but it is stated that the road is to  be completed and ready for trains by  May 1st, 1899. Contractors have had  their eye on this piece of work for a  number of months, but now all speculation is at rest, and it is, the intention  of those fortunate enough to secure  the plum, to push -the work with' all  possible speed. ��  The road is to bo  operated  by   the  Kootenay Railway & Navigation company, the new corporation  which has  taken  over  the  Kaslo & Slocan railway'and the International Navigation,  company steamers  connecting  therewith, i As,is now   well   known,  James  J.Hill,  tho  Great Northern magnate  is the power behind the throne in the  new eompany,  and   this new, connecting link will give  him a new line into  the heart of the rich Kootenay mining  districts and  also immediate connection with   (he . Crow's Nest coal fields.  The new road   will  be about GO miles  or a little less in length, and will for  the most part follow up the Kootenay"  river from Kuskonook to'Bonners Ferry, ' There is said to   be no serious obstacle to the work ol construction over I  the surveyed route.    That part of the  country will doubtless present a,scene  of the greatest activity.  GENERAL  NEWS NOTES.  Rawhiding has commenced  arouud���  the Sandon mines.  The fastest train between New York  arid Boston makes the distance of 232  miles in five hours.  Ninety days have elapsed since the  great fire in New Westminster, but  the ruins, in. some places, are still  smouldering.

N. K.  The question as to whether or not  the Canadian government reserves the  right to grant running powers to  other railway companies over the  Crow'o Nest road is quite frequently  discussed. At a banquet at Toronto  a short time ngo the Hon. Clillbrd  Siftou, in speaking of the Crow's  Nest road, said; "We provided that  the railway should be build' upon the  condition that at any time hereafter  tho government oi Canada might give  running powers over the road to any  other railway that might apply  for them. There should b'e no monopoly, but practically to all intents  and purposes the railway, though,  built by the G..P; R., should be a ife'e  railway���-a highway for any company  that, may hereafter apply for leave to  use it. The Canadian government  also . has absolute and unrestricted control of the rates upon that line."  The miners of Saiidou miist bo  commended for their action in driv-'  ing the Chinese out of that camp. , Alj  though the'Chiuameu were only acting in' the capacity of cooks at the  mines, they w'ere paving their way for  employment in the mines. While the  Chinese have the protection of the law  they must1 be . taught to stay where  they will not interfere with skilled  workmen and good wages,  ''Cau you tell me what sort of  weather we may expect next month."'  wrote a subscriber to the editor of a  paper, and the editor replied as follows : "It is my belief that the wealh*  er next month will be very much like'  your subscription."

Percy Randal in "-emeu* at the piano,  his fingers wandering listlessly over in*  pear'lv keys, evoking low sweet chorda of  melodv. Ho turns bis head as the two  young ladies, enter the music-room, and  fringing np, loaves the instrument, and  advances to inert, them; his bean, going  out in tender sympathy, to Beatrice, on  whose fair brow he notes the phiidow of  unrest.' .  ���'Oh, do not leave the piano, Mr. Randal," pleads Helen. -Pray, finis something. Wo ��re growing horribly dull  s-lnca ihe visitors have nil gone, ami 1  fanuv that Mr. Si. Clair and yourself  will soon be longing ior the day to ar-^  rive when you too can run away."  "On the' contrary," replies Raphael,  "Randal and Jn.wlf are mid and dulJ,  because we mu't soon tear ourselves  jiwuv from this Hvsium and rake np our  HOjoiu-n within ih.�� rime-honored walls  of our alma maler where we shall know  naught but inu��ty volumes, iliesectinK-  rooin- and clinics for tho next six  months. Is ir, any ' wonder that, after  wandering for weeks in the typical  groves of Pnrmli-c, we should dread this  dmn<ro liko ono might a sudden plunge  into ice water, or a veritable expulsion  from the Garden of Eden:-"  Tho other'; laugh at hi = rhapsody, and  young Randal ��iyri with mock gravity: ���  "Indeed, "ladles, . my friend St. Clair  has' iriven you a rude and graphic de-  ricription of tho feelings which lacerate  his breast; ns well as my own, in anticipating that dreaded and not far distant  day when we inu=fc bid'adieu' to Deepdale  anil all its charming associations, and ,  mm our relucrant faces resolutely from  pleasure to bus ness."  ' "Well, as ono always suffers morn iu  anticipation thnn one does in reality,  suppose yon comn and ping something  to dispel the present shadows," laughingly returns lEelen, leading the way to  the piano. i  Rucdal   good-luimoredly   resumes   bis  seat at the' instrument   and   after   ptrik-  lng'a sweet prelude, sings in a rich melodious voico:��� ��  "Hor last words at parting,   how   can I  forget,  Deep   trca?nred   ttirousrh   life    iu   my;  heart they shall be,  Like   music,   whose   charm    in i,h�� kouI  lingers yet,  When   its "sou'nds   from,   the. ear have  long melted away.

In sorrow and  pain,  There's   one    heart   unchanging   that  beats but   for thee.'-  There is a low murmur of applnuso  from the listeners as the last sweet note  vibrates on the flower-perfumed air that  iloats in at tho open window and stirs its  satin draperies, from the fJower-bordored  walks without. Tho singer almost  abruptly leaves the instrument, walks  to tho window, and stands looking out  on the'beauty of the lovely moonlit autumn night.  ��"What a glorious night!" exclaims  Raphael St. Clair, who bus followed his  friend to tho window, and like- him is  taking in the exquisite hen in v of tho  lawn, as it lies bathed iu tender moonlight, the long shadows oast by'the niar-  blo statues, and towering trees making  weird shapes upon its bright surface.  Ono moment ids oyo lingers upon the  quiet, beautiful scono; then, turning  quickly away, be says to the youug  girls who are looking over some music  at. one of tho tables:���  "Girls, what do you Bay to a elxoll on  tho silver Hands of tho beach? Tho evon-  Ing Is really too beautiful for one to remain Indoors."  "It would bo delightful," returns  Beatrice, with animation.  "Let us go. by all means," says Helen,  glad of an opportunity to p;et. Beatrice  out In the opnn air, secretly hoping that  it may dispel thn doprof-sion which has  haunted her friend all day.  "But mamma may need us," replies  tbo clrl, wishing, yet   hesitating,   to ho.  "Not thu least danger of that," Buys  her brother, confidently. "Mother will  bo closeted with Mr. Gilbert in the library for hours yot.'no doubt. Though,"  he add3 thoughtfully, "wo can leavo  word with tho footman where wo may  be found, and if.iahe calls for us, bu can'  quickly inform ns of the fact. Shall I ring  for .Millie to bring; light wraps for you  both?";  A few moments pass,-and the young  couples leave'the house and -grounds of  Deepdale, and ' nro ' pacing arm in arm  the whltcf/shining sands of the beach,  with slow lingering footsteps. Tho still  blue waters of the mighty' deep, with  whining unruffled bosom, sleeps tranquilly in the moonbeams, as though no  such thing as storm or torn pest ever  eWept aoross its placid surface, lashing  it; into fury. ,-.'..  To theso youug people, taking in the  beauty [.of this poena as they slowly traverse the sandy beach, whispering their  soft nothings; who are standing with  untried feet upon tho very threshold of  life's tollsomo journey, nnd are looking  toward tho future with tho hopeful eyes  of youth and inexperience, lif". appears  lko this grand paacnfub oeoan,' with.  scarce a rippling wave to rnillo its placid  bosom. Vain, delusive hope! For storms  must sweep across the horizon of all  earth's pilgrim*, bringing days which  have no light, beauty, nor fragrance to  thrill the spirit with joy, wher. naught  Is heard but tho roar una rush of angry  waters, and weeds and thorns lmrtead  of flowersjtnd fragrance    line    the path-  mKaammasmissuvtKKifssBsasaHBfrsslara  way   Happy are thoy who  better���  "To weave in tho web of life ,  A bright and golden filling,  And do God's will with a trustful   heart I  And bands that aro swift and willing. \  Than to snap tho delicate tender threads ;  Of our wonderful lives asunder;  And then blame heaven for  the   tangled ,  ends,  And sit and grieve and wonder.-*'  Percy Randal's noble head is bent low  to catch each softly murmured   word   of :  his fair   companion,   whose   hand  rests  confidingly on   his   strong   young arm. -  Evidently there is a perfect   understand- j  ing between   this   couple,    nn(l-=-_bon��s^ls_  holding before their enchanted eyes dazzl-  ing vision of future happiness   and con-  |  suinniated desires. �� ,  Raphael nnd Helen have wandered ,  some ehort distance from tho others, and ;  aro sitting on a low rustic seat. They j  are unusually quiet and silent, for times ,  corao when the human heart is too full  for utterance A low rippling laugh in ,  borne to rheir ears, and ' Percy Randal  and Beatrice St. Clair ,puse not far from '  Where   they are seated.  ���'I am glad that, Bee is able to ���laugh |  ag-aiu.

"Do you   know, ,'  Nellie, what unused her   low   spirits   to- ,  day;" using tho pet name of his   sister's '  friend, as \t ho bad a right to do ?o.  . "Yes,  Rapb,"   she   answer?,   in   turn ,  using the namo which   had   been    made  musical to his ear for the   first  iimo, by |  beinir pronounced by hor sweet lip?.   "It ;  was the announcement of the   approaching nuptials of her mother and   Captain  Lennard.       But   really, ��� Rapb,"   Helen  continues, looking artfully into his face,  "1 do   not   think   that   Beatrice, shows  her sound good judgment and > practical  sense, in the way sho regards this event,  which after all is not but of the common  order of things."  "lam aware, of that, Helon," he replies, Bomewhat gloomily. ��� "But both  my sister and myself have so long shared  our mother's .undivided love and care,  that the prospect, of a rival In,- her affection? can but bo distasteful to us."  "This feeling may ��� be r perfectly natural, but it is nono the less selfish, for  all that," she returns, laughingly; then  moro serious: "But you should remember.

Found   ChangcM   That   Astonished    Him,  One of Which Dsserves  the Widest  Publication for  the Benefit it  May Prove to Others. ,  From the Li-nder and lleeoi-iU-r, Toronto Junc-  tion.  The editor of the Leader and Recorder,.during a'recent holiday trip through  the counties of   York, Peel,  Dufferin  and Grey, spent a few days tit the old  pareutal homestead, wheie he was bora  and spent many happy years.'   The old  homestead  id iu   the towiirihip of  Euphrasia, Grey county, about one  aud a  half miles south of tlie village of Heath-  cote.aud about, ten miles from tho town  of Meaford.   It is occupied by the writer's youngest,   brother, George .T. Faw-  cetr.    The   hurer   wis ,the  picture of  health, aud remembering tlmt -when he  came from Detroit, where he  had been  living for  several   yearn, and took possession of   Lhe   homestead, he  was ' in  such feeble health that his life was despaired of, the writer suggested that the  bracing climate of the northern, regions  miint be the best medicine in tlie world  for a shattered constitution.   The reply  luudu contaiue.d   ntstiemeutai so remarkable that we consider it  a  pleasure  us  well as  a duty   to give them as   wide  publicity as possible   through  the  columns ot the Leader and  Recorder.'   ^\  severe   artaek   of   malaria,'' contracted  whilst in  Detroit, brought the writer's  brother to death's dopr, from which he  recovered only to  liurl himself- the victim of a complication of troubles which  uniitted him. for   work,    llu was  tit-  tended by some  of  the  most  eminent  physicians iu  Detroit, but he .received  liltJe or  no. heuelit   from their treatment. ��� Change of air   was   filially re-  eomlriemled  and  h��t   removed with his  family'to the county of Grey. A slight  change for  the  betten'was notieahle at  first, but he soon relapsed- into  the old  condition and iigain  sought  help from  rhe  leading doctors of- the  district in  turn.    Sleeplessness took possession  oi  him aud soon lio was wasted away to a  mere   skeleton.    Then tho ^doctors declared they could do  nothing  more for  him, and advised 'him "to   go   to California.   During all these weary months  he read   iu   tlie  papers .from time   to"  time and laughed  at what  be  termed  the  ".miracles"   wrought, by  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills!    Ife  had no faith in  such remedies, and it   was  only when  the physicians told him that they could  do'no   more   for  him   that,   like the  drowning man who'cutches at a straw,  lio would trya box of the pills.   To his  great astonishment his sleeplessness had  vanished before  he   had been nsing the  pills a week, aud  he  slept like an infant.    Gradually his strength returned  and his appetite improved, and soon he  felt like a new  man.    A   few  months  .ifter   taking   the  first  dose he was as  well as ever.   For'more than two years  past he has   not  taken  any medicine  whatever, and today you ' will  not find  -i sturdier specimen of mankind in Grey  than  Geo.   J.   Ftiwcett. ' "What do  ]  rhink of  Pink Pills'/" he queried with  i smile; "why'I think there is nothing  like them on eaith for building up  tin  system;   but  for   Dr. Williams'  Pink  Pills I do not think T would bo alive today."  The experience of years ,has proved  that there is absolutely no disease dn<  to a vitiated condition of the blood 01  ���ihattured ncrvps that. Dr Williams'  Piuk Pills will not promptly cure, and  those who are goffering from such  troubles would avoid much misery anc  save money by promptly resorting U  ������his treatment. Get the genuine Pinls  Pills every time and do uot be persuaded to take an imitation or souk  other remedy from a dealer, who foi  the sake of the extra profit to himsell  ninv say is "just as good."

The  wildcats, so-called, are lynxes with  short Uiils, and of these there are three  distinct, species. But there is only.one  true representative of the genii's Felis;  and that, is the animal first above mentioned. Jt has received many trivial,  appellations. Among the early American trappers and hunters east of the  which is one of   the  ninny  people- m^k.e  Jviitkonoqk is at present   one  of   the j mlissippi   river,    it is    called    the  livliest places of   its   ?ize   in   British ' panther, or, in their patois, "painter;  Columbia, and   scores   of  people   who   *n the liocky mountains and California,  left there during t;ic dull   times   now  wish,   themselves   back  again. _ Some  poisons are so shortsighted as to   condemn a town as soon as 'it  begins   to'  'get dull, and believe there is  never a  chance of it again  coming out.    They !  hear pf another town   having a  boom j  and,, there   (hey   rush.    Shortly  after'  iheir arrival lha-t   (own ' bee-ins   to  go  down ; they condemn ii ay before .unci  push on farther.   'And   thus   they  go  all through life.    ]f you talk with one  of these men, especially tile older ones,  perhaps lie will tell yon th��t he was'in  Butte  when'   there   were   only  three  cabins, in Winnipeg   when    lie  could  have bought town property for a song,  or camped for weeks   where   Wpo.kunc  now stands when   (here   was 'nothing  aside  from   a   few   Indian    wigwams.'  But i)o  iu.-died   on  the '"California, lion.'  There are few wild animals, says the  St. Lpuis lhipublic, so regular in their  color as the cougar; very little variety  has been observed among many specimens. The cougar of mature age is of  j "tawny icd color, almost uniform over  the whole body, although somewhat  paler about the face and the parts un-  dernealh. Though considered the representative of the lion in America, his  resemblance to the royal beast is but  slight. His color alone entitles him. to  such nn honor.  lie. is a .tree climber. He can,mount  a tree with the agility of a cat, and, although so.large an animal, he climbs by-  means -of his claws���not by hugging,  after the manner of bears and oppos-  surns.  While climbing a tree his claws can  be heard cracking along the bark as he  mounts upward. He sometimes , lies  f;quar. aion^  -a low  er one-  . horizontal brunch  -for the  purpose of springing  always   trying  to j upon a deer, or such other animal as he  still lie   >-,ill niH j wishes to feed upon.

The Cascade range, and every tributary chain of mountains on the vast. Pacific slope, was the habitat of the  cougar, or mountain lion, as everybody  cut there called the ferocious beast.  Tlie cougar rarely ventured out of the  groat forests, however, the deer and  mountain sheep'furnishing them their  general food.  In ISfi?

I reached the foot of the first  ' ���ig-zag," at the west side of the valley, where it juts ngni-st the range of  mountains about sundown, and, be-  i'oiv essaying the- aseent, dismounted  and cinched my saddle.  In a little more than three hours I  reached the Summit, making frequent  halts to wind my animal,'for she had  labored heavily in struggling up the  grade.: ,  When I started on again, after resting 20 or 30 minutes, the' moon, which  was at its full, now appeared at the  verge of/the horizon, way below me at  the lower end of the valley, and began  to ligiht'iip the trail on the summit of  the range, so that in tlie clear, cloudless sky objects were as distinctly visible as a,t, noonday, though the atmosphere and alb nature seemed tinged  with a silver f/lieen.

For a moment 1  was seemingly fascinated by the uncanny vision, but in another inst.-mt all  sense of possible superstition vanished,  as I saw the bushes move and heard  dead twig.s lying on the ground crack,  as if under the foot of some heavy ani-  mar'treading on them. With , bated  breath, I saw a monstrous cougar  stealthily crawl but of lhe tangled mays  of brushwood in a crouching attitude,  its tail slowly oscillating, as docs that of  the domestic cat when watching a  inouse-hole.  The beast evidently then saw me for  the first time, and, as is natural with the j  species, instinctively drew back, as if to  fly from the presence of man. It was  my handsome mare the cougar coveted,  ���but, seeing mc, it deferred the fatal  spring it had contemplated at the moment its eyes first met mine.        ��� ,��� .  I soothed Pefalttma' ns best I could,  but her trembling was not in the least  abated, though she rubbed her nose  against'my coat sleeve, as.was her wont  when I caressed her. She seemed a. little, more passive���that is, she did not  attempt those frantic jumps iu her efforts to get away that a.tfirst characterized hero terrible fright when she  smellcd the cougar, or by some instinct  became aware of its proximity.  What I had to do, and do quickly, was  to get away from there' as soon as possi-"  ble, for I did not know how soon the  ferocious brute, nearly��famished with,  hunger, maybe, might make ?ui effort to  fasten its horrid claws into the flanks of  my mare, ignoring my presence entirely.    So I'hurriedly knocked the tobacco  from my pipe, and, stroking Petahuna  on the shoulder, mounted her as rapidly  as 1 ever had before in my life, and was  no sooner seated firmly in my saddle  than, without a word or other impulse  from  mo, she made a bolt down the  trail that nearly threw me  over    her  head, at the same instant seeming Io  shrin3< convulsively in a frantic elf ort to  look behind her.  1     7   s}inpathetiically turned my   head  around and gazed at the bare hilltop  this side of the blasted cedars, a.rid. to  my horror, saw those great green eyes  but a few rods behind me,  following  my   trail   with a sort    of    crouching,  crawling motion, all ready, evidently,  to spring tho moment it had covered  the. right, distance.  When I noticed that the cougar was  crawling in its crouching attitude behind me I had presence of mind enough  to tli ink that if I reined my horse and  made her walk, it would impress the  cougar with the fact that I was there  ns well as the animai it wanted to devour for its late supper. I could thwart  ilsdesigns.as I feltconfident that where  I had first seen, the cougar, in a,narrow  valley, surrounded by lofty mountains,  heavily timbered, the government had  erected a blockhouse and a, corral, in  which were herded a number of horses  and mules, to boused as relays between  the military posts,  I hoped thn t T should be able to ntaJce  that point in about, tw,c hours from the  cluster of cedars, but now thatthecou-  gar had en-tered as,a factor in my calculations, I did not know whether I  should reach the blockhouse at all, or  maybe only on foot, with my beautiful  mare's bones left on the trail, picked  clean by the vicious beast that was following me.  True to its instincts, it was really  afraid of mc. I .succeeded with great  difficulty, however, in coaxing my.  mare into a slow walk, the effect of  which resulted ns I surmised it would.  The. cougar ceased at once its fearful  bounds, and settled down into a shambling sort of gait, dropping further behind mo at the moment.  Desirous of knowing for a certainty  whether my tactics were the sudden  ca use of the creature's abrupt change of  movement, I allowed Petahuna to  break- into a quick lope, and the instant  the huge cat noticed the marc's renewed effort to get away, ifc commenced its former action. I then  slackened my gaii, and to my intense  satisfaction the cougar once more  lagged behind, renewing its slow movements, and seemed to,/be now watching t'h'e rider closer than.it did the mare..  I did not again dare to let Petaltima  go n>ny faster than a-'walk, and during  the whole 12 miles to-the blockhouse,  as long as I maintained,that slow gait,  the cougar did nob try to spring toward  US.' .
