I  10YIH GUI  Q,ueQn>s Birthday Fittingly Observed!.  A GRAND PICNIC AND DANCE  The B^Riiaer Echo llauletl   tho Fr.opfo to  and From tho aronndB.���The    ,  : - .i  PrtRO Winners.  * '        '        . J  The Y9tb anpiversary of the birthday  o�� Queen-Victoria wasfittifigly observed  by tho residents qf this place last Tuesday, and the interest which they took  in ���the affair made it like a|l other  things undertaken by Moyie City peo-  ple-^a grand euocoss.'  The prograrA waB carried out,almost  exactly as stated ' in the L#5A��Ea last  week. The Echo made a - trip to, the  head Qf tbe lake in the morning and  on its way back called at {.be yarious  construction camps along the way and  brought those who were desirous ��� of  celebrating tp this place. As she  pulled up to,the wharf on her return  a^volley of 3hots was fired from the  balcony of the Moyie hotel by a squad  of .Moyie City's sharpshooters.  At 11 o'clock the boat, loaded with  merry picnicepi, started for ,the  grounds, at tho foot of the lake. The  grounds had been previously cleared,  ���tables stationed 'and swings put up by  the williug citizens of the town and by  Mr. J. Haskins, the big hearted rail-'  way contractor, who contributed both  labor and material. Here the people  procee7led to enjoy' themselves. Many  took advantage of the swings, and no  little amusement was created with the  merry-go-round. Mr. Neiderstadt do-r  nated two kegs of his excellent beer to  tbe occasion, and of course this was  also taken advantage or.  After a sumptuous luncheon was  served and the tables cleared, J. M.  Lindsay introduced Judge W. H.  Fraser who took the platform and delivered a brief but eloquent address.  "We have assembled here," said Mr,  Fraser, "to celebrate the seventy-  ninth anniversary of the birth ot  Queen Victoria. ' Jusfc - seventy-nine  years ago today Queen Viotoria, who  now rules over ��50,000,000 of people,  was born, and nearly 61 years ago she  afecended the throne. Since that time  most of our fathers and mothers were  born, and during the ��� period of  her reign nearly every natic.ii on the  face of the globe has changed its form  of government or has been engaged in  war with some other country." He  tnen spoke of some of .the most important events of her reign, and closed  with a few eulogizing remarks for Her  Majesty.  The-following is a list'of the sports  and those winning first and second  prizes:  Gentlemen's flag race���R. H. Oliver  first, W. J. Hamilton second,  ,   Ladies' flag race^-Mrs. D. J. Elmer  first, Miss Davis second.  Gentlemen's sack race<-~-D. J. Elmer  first, R. H. Oliver second.  Ladies memory'.'test-~Mrs. J. M.

J. Smyth  and Mrs. S.hae second.  The tug of war was a hot one. The  pull lasted about nine minutes and  was won by Mfi Elmer's team.  The prizes were given away in the  evening at the East Kootenay hotel  by Mrs. J. M. McMiihon, the hostess,  assisted by F. I. Moore, after which  Professor Murphy's orchestra struck  up a tune and one of the most enjoyable hops ever given in Moyie City  was in progress. A large crowd was  in attendance and, dancing was kept  up until about 3 o'clock a. m.5 andall  returned to their homes feeling that  the first celebration of Her Majesty sN  birthday in Moyie City had been a  most successful one.  Mr. O'Neil, of the firm of Cowan &  O'Neil who have the tunnel contract  at tbe head of Moyie lake, arrived here  last Saturday afternoon from NcIbou.  /7  SENERAL MERCHANTS.-,..  it-  ardware  roeene  JKW?8��|' PWPTJTO A SFBOiALTY,  ���><&-*-  ^  ^EROppIETOUS   QFT  The,On!y ,Uprto-Data Hostlery in East'Eootsn^y,  t&CO^IS   *PX'3ea5?i  BRiwa^a: oolumbia.

Booge, who Ijas been operating  quite extensively in East.Kootnay for  some; time past, returned homo last  Wednesday after a few rnonths' absence. Mr. Booge is at tho head of  the company'thatrocoiitly took a bond  on the Royal - Oak and0 Lake View  groups of claims which are situated on  the we3t shore of Moyio lake, directly  opposite this place. 'There are eleven  claims in the two groups; th.e Royal  Oak is a galena proposition and is believed to be on a continuation of the  St'. Eugene ledge, while, the kakc  View lies further up the lake and  runs principally in gold bearing  quart?. -  Although the claima have only been  located during the last two years,' considerable work has been done on them,  and iu every case the surface showings have greatly irnprovod under development, On the Royal Oak a 50  foot tunnel bas been run and tbe  ledge has been stripped in several  places. Good, substantial cabins have  been built and everything is in readiness for working large forces of men.  Mr. Booge will make a personal inspection of the different claims next  week and will report to his company  and in all probability active work  will be commenced on them within  the^neit month. Mr. Booge has decided to make Moyie City his home,  and give his entire attention to hi3  mining interests.  Tii at Telephone Again.  . G. C. Hodge of Nelson, district superintendent of the Vernon and Nelson  and the Kootenay Lake telephone  companies, passed through here on  his way to Fort Steele last Wednesday.  To a LejVder representative he said he  would look into the matter of extending the line from Swansea to Moyie  City, and do whatever was reasonable  with the the people of this placo. He  is expected to return today from his  ..tbur'bf investigation, and willbe in  position to give more definite informa-  .tion...

Fallon and John McOrae  passed through here last Tuesday on  thoir way froni Bonners Ferry to the  Sullivan Hill country, where they will  do assessment' work on the Hidden  Hand and Last Addition' claims in  which they are interested. Considerable work has already been done on  the Hidden Hand, and it has shown  wonderfully rich in high grade galena.  The boys are also interested in several  other promising East Kootenay mining propositions.  Cha-Dged Managers.  This week E. H. Small tendered his  resignation as manager of thc Toronto  Clothing house and accepted a position at the Moyie hotel, and S. A.

It is reported that excursion trips  will be made from Spokane and other  northwestern cities to East Kootenay  points this summer. If such is the  oase, the excursionists should notover��-  look Moyie City, the hub of East  Kootenay.

A Last Point In tlicjEducatfon of the Modern Young Womnn���She Should Bo Mude  to Understand livr Power to Help Mon  lead Better Lives.  Miss Agnes Ileppllcr's very clever essay  on the "Etornal   Fcmirii.no''is a' uniquu  contribution to   tho  philosophical di��cus-<  sion of thu qualifications of woman as dls-j  tinctly intended to make her mentally cor-"  rolativu ancl never synonymous with man.  In theso days our daughters aro launched  Into tho world much  as  professional men  ;    would be did their outfit consist of  test-  books of   which   they had not learned tho  '  use.    LVory embellishment,, every accomplishment, every mental equipment, ovcry  bodily skill of athletic  play, is sedulously  . made  farrriliar to them.    They nro indued  '  -   "splendidly furnished," but to how few is  it taughtt'bat thoy are to bo the strongest j  restraining and  purifying ' power  of tho i  Boclal world!  Xoone can shut out from n young girl's  consciousness thut she is beautiful if tho  .wondrous gift is really hers. Why should ,  sho not bo made to understand that having ,  It she has been intrusted with that which  has had power to rnovo even tho rulers and  kingdoms of tho earth and that ln tlio lowest estimate possible of her influence sho  has "a government upon her shoulders?"  AVe of n generation passing out of  sight ,  6ay con.stnnily that  the world isricher In  "arc and splendor, in   luxury anil resource,  than when we were young.   Wo know that ,  life is fuller, thattbinps wo never dreamed  of gladden nnd mako life easier materially j  and moro worth living Intellectually. Yes,  J  these nro trite truths, but  no   thoughtful !  womnn believes that tho general aim is as j  elevating, as  conservative, that tho influ- i  once against  dissipation   and .the coarser j  grain  of  life's converse and notion is as ,  largooras strong as it was in'thoir young  '' day.  Thoro is no desire to bring back tho  formality and stilted stiffness of Miss  Austen's heroes and horoinea. It takes rill  her char.iu of genius and humor to liralio  them real men and women to us. But ho-  twecn theso and tho 'unfortunate freedom  of today thcr i was a tlmo when tho born-  ago paid to loveliness and youth and beauty  mount that ir mnn should como with clean  lips, chivalr't deference and rostraiuod  epeech into tbo society of women ho admired.  Can thero bo n doubt that if it wore a  part of every girl's preparation for her lifo  Jn tho world to uiidorntand that, sho could  holpinon to lead better lives, to'havo higher aims, to .think nobler thoughts, sho  would not respond to hor calling ''and bo  proud of her possibilities? Continually  girls aro warned that this is not customary  and that is rrot good form, and that chaperons and various conventional proprieties aro indispensable, but is it instilled  into them that far above conventions of  every sort thero is an unwritton law to  which thoy aro bound to bo obedient, a law  that is to link tlio better lifo with their regard?  Words may multiply concerning tho exactions, thebiascd judgments, tho unsoo-  ing'persisteneo of wives and mothcrsj^yprt  inuch bitterness may point their analysis,  of fominino character aiuong young mon  wounded by coquotry or maimed by tho  falseness of a ilirt, but in tho end, as suro-  Jy as tho sea obeys its ordained obb und  flow, and comes back true to tho beach it  hns somo timo left bare, man's hoart rests  not until in somo of its varying relations  as mother, wlfoor love he finds tho strongest influence of his nature through a woman's help.  Ono of tbo ways in which this influence  is profanod in theso last days of our  strange, transforming century, is the 11b-  orty of conversation. Weary of the morning's skimming of-tho journals of tho day,  in which to do ovil seems,to bo tho allotted  task of till humanity, a man finds tho latest horror tho subject of tho family chat  on his return to his home. Thero is no  offort mode, no trouble taken to keep one  placo, one hour of the day free from the  wrotehodness of thc world's sin and misery. Tho room must bo woll ventilated. A  pure air, full of healthful oxygen, must ha  freo to vitalise the blood, but for tho mental atmosphere, what occupies thc thronged  city and stirs tho passions aud horrors of  men, may sufiieo without disapproval.  "Ignorance is not innoconcc," nor yet is  tho knowlcdgo of ovil, which no man can j  hinder, possibly to be confounded with  loss of sensitivo delicacy and clear eyed i  purity of thought, but the general discus- !  sion of subjects involving tho analysis of \  crime and the questions of morality, com- I  mon to present society, lowers the tone of i  all concerned.  It has been tho writer's personal experience during the past year to hear ani- ���  ninlpd arguments at a public tnblo bo- ;  tweeri young married and unmarried men j,  and women of excellent social standing j  as to the morality or immorality of .books j  and plays involving the deepest questions i  of lifo'and the relations of tho saxes. . j  "Tho 'jeune flllo' is a forgotten person- ]  age. There is no longer any ono answer- I  Jug to her whom tho French, so called," j  said a woman of the world tome. Per- i  Imps society is not impoverished by the j  loss of her who being ri woman in yearn j  was allowed to be a child in simplicity, j  Yet it would be refreshing occasionally, to j  old eyes at least, to be in tho company, of !  ono whoso trust in honor and sincerity |  was without fear, who knew not tho tor- j  rors and pitfalls of '-lifo und who had yet |  tho lost art of blushing in her gentle list j  of accomplishments.     \ '     ' j  A   revolutionizing  powor  as to all that  changes' tho. "order  of  our  day" lies in I  feminine hands, through tho uso ot  what  is  distinctively hers.    Through   no other j  moans  can   amusement  bo   kept  within .  hounds,   compliment    bo   roproasod   into I  moro delicate  expression, conversation he I  Jed intohighor yet not less lively channels,  '  and men be made to know thnt to win fa- i  vors they must wear the tokens of knightly purity and   courage.    It is not through \  her ^strong   arm,   nor  hor  mathematical  honoj-s, nor her admittance to tho bar, that  a woman can elevate her race.    I3y her adherence to the true, the  spiritual   and tho ,  uplifting  will  she make a refuge  lor tho  fnon of hor time.���New York Post.

"Heroes Who Fight Fires" is ���thc tltlo  . of an artlclu by Jacob A. Kiis in Tho Century, in tho serles'of  "Iloroes of ��� Peaco."  1 Mr. Rlis says:    '  I' onco asked Fireman Martin M. Coleman aftor one of those exhibitions of cool-  ' ncss and courage that thrust him constantly upon tho notice of tho newspaper  man what ho thought of when ,.he stood0  upon tho ladder with this thing boforo  him to do that might mca-ti lifo or death  tho next' moment. Ho looked at mo' in  some perplexity, *"  "Think?" ho said slowly. "Why, I don't  think. There ain't any timo to. If I'd  stopped to think, them five peoplo would  V boon burnt. Xo, I don't think of danger. If it is anything, it is that up thoro  Iain boss. Tho rest are not in it. Only  I wish," ho added,, rubbing his arm ruefully at tho recollection, "thnt she hadn't  fail ted. It's hard when thoy faint. They'ro  just so much dead weight. Wo get' no holp  at all from thorn heavy women."  And that was all I could get out of him!'  I never had much better luck with Chief  Benjamin A. Gicquol, who is tho oldest  wearer of tho 13ennotfc medal, just as Colo-  man is tho youngest, or tho ono who re-  ceived.it last. < lie was willing enough to  talk about.tho science of putting out fires,  of Department Chief lionncr.'tho "man of  few words," who he thinks has mastered  tho art beyond any man living; of tho  buck draft and almost anything clso pertaining to the business,.but when I insisted upon 'his telling mo tho story of tho  rcscno of tho Sbhaefcr family of fivo from  a burning tenement down in Cherry street,  in which ho earned his rank and reward;  ho laughed a good humored littlo laugh  and said it was "tho old man";���meaning  Schacfer���who should havo had tho medal.  "It was a grand thing in him to lot the  littlo ones come out first." I havo sometimes wished that firemen wero not so  modest. It would be much easier, if not  so satisfactory, to record their gallant  deeds. But I am not suro that it is, after  all, modesty, so much-as a wholly different  point.of viow. It is business with them,  tho work of their lives. The one feeling  that is allowed to rise beyond this is the  feeling of. exultation in tho faco of peril  conquered by courage which Coleman .expressed. On tho ladder ho was boss! It  was'- tho funcy of a masterful man, and  none but a masterful man would havo got  upon tho ladder uc all.  And Simpkins Was Compelled to Tell Hoir  rr-      lie Knew It.  Over th^Y/river a virtuous spasm came  upon tho authorities, and a lot of "gams"  were "pulled." Among other witnesses  for tho state tho name of Simpkins wns  called. ",  Mr. Simpkins, who was a pasty faced  young man, rose from his seat and walked  to tho witness stand. After tho oath had  been administered to him and tho usual  preliminary question hud been asked', ho  was tola to go on and toll his story.  ���'It was tin's way," said Mr. .Simpkins,  "I liko to .play a littlo poker once in  awhile, and 1 went up into this room and  sat in a gamo. There were four others bo-  sides myself playing. Things ran along  pretty evenly for awhilo and then ono of  tho men���Thrive since learned tha,i> ho was  tho proprietor of tho room���began to win  heavily-. I watched him and becamo convinced that'ho was cheating. Finnlly I  knew ho was cheating and drew out of tho  gamo. Then I sat and watched him for  awhilo, and I saw him deal big hands to  the man he wanted to bent, and then deal  himself bigger ones. It was scandalous.  He stacked tlio cards and hold thorn out,  and did all sorts of disreputable things. I  saw this and run prepared to prove it. If  thero is anything I abhor, it is cheating  at cards." ' ��� ���<  "Wait a moment, Mr. Simpkins," interrupted the prosecuting attorney. "What  was it that first attracted your'attontion  to tho fnct that cheating wa.s going on?"  Mr. Simpkins fidgeted a bit in his chair  and then said, "Why, I was in a pot with  this man, and when it camo to a showdown, he had four kings?"  "And why dirl that convinco you that ho  was cheating?"  ."Because���been uso"��� stammered  Mr.  Simpkins, and then ho stopped short.  "Answer tho question, Mr. Simpkins,"  put in thc judge.'  Mr. Simpkins grew red in tho faco.  "Because," ho finally said, "why, I know  ho was ohenting becauso ho showed down I  four kings and at'tho very sanio time I  was holding out two kings for tho next  hand. "-'-Fargo Forum.

Italian, French, Spanish Confections.  It was not from either Italy or Franco  that wo got tho best confectioners in tho  earlier days of English cookery. Spain,  notably Toledo, furnished England with  tho most celobrated pastry cooks, or pasto  leros as they aro called,, though wo havo  sinco looked most to Frnnco for theso artists. Under Tho patronago of "Bloody  Mary" and of Queen Henrietta, Maria  Spanish methods flourished apace in tho  court cuisino. We road that when -Mary  entertained the Princess Elizabeth at Richmond in the summer of 1557 a sumptuous  banquet1 was served, in which there was  introduced as an ornament a pomegranate  tree in confectionery work bearing the  arms of Spain, showing Mary's Spanish  leanings in a rather ostentatious fashion.  Theso Spanish and Portuguese confectioners woro very skillful.  In tho comedy of "Tho Sun's Darling,'*  by Ford and Decker (first acted l()'So-i)r  the "Spaniard" who is ono of tho dramatic  persons declares himself "a eonfeccinna,-  dor, which Jn your tonguo is a comfit  maker, of Toledo."

Cl  "Tho important part which tho penny  plays in tho avcrago church offering is  known to every 0110 who has ever been interested in church finances," writes Edward W. Bok in Tho Ladies' Homo Journal.' "And that it is' a part entirely out  of , proportion to tho necessities is foic'and  realized by many a church treasurer.  Scores of people who could afford to drop  a nickel or a dime into the churchoilcr-  ing content themsclvos.by giving'a penny.-  Tho feeling is either that tho smallest  offering 'will do,' or tho matter of church  finances is not given any thought. Thero  is a failuro to realizo that a church is"tho  (,snmu aa any other business institution,  and it must havo money for its moinw-  nanco.  ".There is such a thing as too literal an  interpretation of the phrase that 'religion  is free.' Of course it is freo, and let us  hopo that it will aiways bo so in this country. But to mako religion freo costs  money���and this isn't tin Irish bull, either. There aro choso to whom moro than  'tho widow's mito' given to tho"church  would mean doing without somo absolute  necessity of lifo. ,Tho penny of such a ono  is tho most welcome gift to any church,  tho most noble offering which any one can  make. But irom those who can givo moro  than a penny, and who arc giving only tho  penny, sucli an offering is an insult to  (Jod and to his church, and the sooner peoplo sec the matter in this hard, true light  thc better. I am almost tempted to say  that the great majority of churches could,  with perfect justice, rule out the penny  from their offerings. Wero this dono tho  nickel would - bo tho prevailing offering,  and to how few persons, wlien ono stops to  consider tho question, would such an offering bo a hardship or an impossibility? A  yearly offering of Sii.UO, calculating that  ono attended church onco each Sunday or  twice with one offering of 5 cents, would  galvanize tho church finances of this country.

Why is lt, then, that niamnis  chooses dross reform for baby and not for  herself? IiccnuFe baby's clothes, If simple,  aro comfortable. At tbe same time tbey  are dainty ond pretty.  Tho chief advantage of theso innovations  lies in the fact that tho old fashioned'plotting blanket xvlth Its band wound tightly  alxrut tho waist has been banlsbod. In its  place is a pinning blankot thnt buttons on  tho shoulders and is cut with a strap  which crosses nnd interlaces about tbe  waist.

According to tho most advanced ideas  of many nurses and doctors, If baby is  dressed tho now way a band is not necep-  sary after baby Is a month old.

E.  Gosnell, nro-  Vincial librarian, stating that the government   of   'British    Columbia   has  ��� '   placed a sum of $1,000 in the current  ��� estimates for  the establishment of a  system of public libraries.    .    .-  The system', as explained, appears  especially adapted to the needs of'this  province, where so many countries are  isolated and where' the opportunities  for obtaining access to interesting rind  useful literature is limited. It may be  described as follows:  A. certain number in a bonimiinity,  25 adults, sign a petition asking for a  library to be sent to a designated address. They agree to pay the, transportation charges, if any{ to provido a  Suitable place fof its recaption, to  fceleet a librarian tc take charge of the  books and act as librarian (free of  charge ho the government,)' and to for-  , 'ward thc library tc fi ��� designated address) at the sn'd of three month's at  the end of which tirilc the library will  be replaced by another lot cf boolis,  iind so on.  Every petition ra'uat bo accompanied by tlie cost of tho case, $5"; cut  30 community will ever.be rcc/uired to  jay for more than one.  ^ This i.s a capital oppbituuity for  Moyie City to get in possession of a  library with but a trivial expense, and  if some energetic person will take hold  of the matter the people here can soon  have access to a variety of good books  and periodicals.  iiim ���!������ Ti MiilnrnnmiMTinrtir  SPIKJ.T Of I'jVi'IlIOTJSM.
