The Moyie football team played  Cranbrook last Wednesday in a  cup final for the Kerrigan cup,  The game was called for 6 p. m,  There was a good attendance of  spectators, noticeable being  the  visitors    from    Moyie.     Moyie  started the play with a bold dash  up field.   After a little exchanging on both sides, Kemp put in a  splendid shot, beating the Cranbrook goal tender by scoring the  the only goal.   The   game   was  fast and furious, but Moyie had  the best of it   all   along.    The  Cranbrook goal keeper saved some  splendid shots.   The Moyie boys  returned  to   their   home   town  bringing with them the Kerrigan  cup for the second year in succession.    After   the   game    the  jovial hosts of' the   Royal   and  Wentworth hotels filled the cup  with champagne, and the success  of both teams was    drunk   to,  This is the lineup of the Moyie  team:    Goal, F. Perkins;   backs,  Gill and Turnbull; halfbacks. Potter, M. Marshall and Wilson; forwards, li. Marshall, Kemp,   Mc-  NicoJ, Hillary and Weaver; lineman, P. Atkinson; referee, R. Agnew; manager, Herb.

Already he has taken the initial  steps towards the end and he ex  pected that the government  would be able to declare the Pacific coast in direct communication with the middle west by  wagon road in the not distant  future.  w  The best of accommodations  for the Traveling Public.

When the work now under way  on tho dam of the  Moyie Water  Co. on Campbell creek is completed,   Moyie's    water system will  have oyer   100 pounds   pressure.  The cast iron gate is set in concrete,   and   a   concrete  wall  six  feet higher than the old dam will  be built.    The dam will consequently hold about six feet more  of water and the pressure will be  increased 15 or   20 pounds.   This  will give Moyie one of the very  best water systems in the Kootenays.

Moyie's ball . team   played in  rather hard luck in Cranbrook on  the 14th and 15th.   The first day's  game was in Cranbrook's favor 3  to 1, and the second day's game  5 to 4.    But it was nothing to  Cranbrook's credit that she won,  for she was all loaded and primed  for the battle that was to come.  Cranbrook knew she had the crack  team of the Kootenays to beat,  and beat it she must, even if it  did cost them money to so.   Some  of the best players in the Western Canada league and other outsiders were sent  for.    Even the  umpire was imported from somewhere up north, where he probably had more to do with Eskimos than with white men.    But  even with a team mad6 up largely  of professionals, Moyie held the  scores so   close  that   Cranbrook  has nothing to boast of.  However, the Moyie boys are  not kicking. They usually -win,  and when they happen to lose a  game they don't holler their heads  off. They will tell you that  Eanie Small, the Cranbrook manager, is one of the best sports  they ever met, and that it really  pleased them to go up against a  team that tested their metal.  The Moyie team has had almost a record breaking season.  Out of the 16 games played so far  it has lost but three. Of the 16  games Ray Crissler pitched all  but two, and Harold Grady was  the catcher for all of them.

Reddy, ex-chief of  police of Spokane and ex-mayor  of Medford, Oregon, was here  this week to have a look at the  Moyie townsite, in which he is interested with J. D. Farrell of  Seattle and Glen. Campbell of  Fernie. Mr. Reddy also went to  Cranbrook and met J. A. Harvey,  who represents all three persons.  For some time the lots in Moyie  have been off the market, on account of a difficulty between the  parties concerned. However,  everything is now amicably arranged, and those who bought  lots will soon have their conveyances.  Spokane Fair Rates.  The round trip rate from Moyie  to Spokane for the Interstate  Fair is $5.95.   Tickets are on sale  W.B.-S. Gilbert  Monday from Seattle, where he  was attending the fair.

He left  for his home in Vancouver on  yesterday's train.  Crowe Bros, can fill all your orders for preserving fruits and  pickling vegetables.  Harry Steuart spent a few  hours in Moyie last Monday and  got around to meet most of his  many old friends. Mr. Steuart  has a farm near Holbrook, Oregon,  and from his appearance rural  life thoroughly agrees with him.  August Mueller, for several  months manager of the Moyie  brewery, left Thursday for his  home in Regina. August is a  bright and energetic young man,  and has the happy faculty of  making friends wherever he goes.  Good weather favored the two  days of Cranbrook's Fair and  Race Meet, and the attendance  was probably as large as was expected. Cranbrook has the only  racetrack m East Kootenay, and  very suitable grounds for holding  a fair. The city also has good  hotel accommodations and visitors can be well provided for. The  display of^fruits=and^vegetables  were not large, but whatever was  lacking in quantity was fully  made up in quaility. The apples  and other fruits and vegetables  from Creston were particular}'  good, and that town deserves  credit for having the largest and  best exhibit on the grounds.  Even Curzon was there with a  creditable exhibit, and the people  were surprised to see what can be  grown in the Moyie valley.  The horseracing was interesting  and many were afforded the  opportunity of witnessing a Marathon race for the first time. It  was a five mile race by three  white men and three Indians,  Two of the Indians dropped out  and the third one was last at the  finish. A man named Crookes,  employed at the King Lumber  Co., was the winner, and Archie  Elwell was a close second.  Ready to Ship.

Harry Steuart came up from  Holbrook, Oregon, the beginning  of the week and made arrangements at Cranbrook for the taking of the body of his brother,  Bert Steuart, down to Spokane  for burial. The deceased was 28  years of age, and had been ailing  only for about a week. An ab-  cess on the brain was the cause of  his death. His mother lives at  Whitebird, Idaho, who with his  brother, Harry, are the only relatives he leaves in this country.  Tbe news of his death last Saturday morning came as a shock  to his host of friends in Moyie.  Many were not even aware that  he was in the hospital at Cranbrook.  Sunday's Ball Game.  Moyie and Cranbrook played  only five innings at Aldridge park  last Sunday. The boys got a late  start, and it was necessary to cut  the game short so that the Cranbrook boys could go home on the  flyer. The score was 8 to 7 in  favor of Moyie. Wormington  pitched the first half for Moyie  andTOrissIerrthe"last_half.���Grady  was catcher. This made the  sixth straight game won by the  Moyie team within a month,  Will Attend  College.  R E. Collis, former pastor of  the Moyie Methodist church, but  for some months over at Vernon,  is leaving there on the 25fch of  this month for Toronto, where he  will attend Victoria college.

Moore formerly  of Moyie are now snugly located  ia the town of Agassiz, about 70  mile8 from Vancouver, near the  head of the Fraser valley, which  in prehistoric times was au inlet of the Pacific ocean. Mrs.  }��oore has sent the Leader a brief  but interesting description of the  place.  Where the town now stands  has been gradualy filled in by  sediment deposited in past ages  by the mighty Fraser. The chemical constituents of this sediment  (is such that the soil formed by it  ,is highly productive and is a  source of wonder to tourists, who  see plums weighing 3 to the  pound, fruit trees growing 6 feet  iu one season and immense crops  of hops raised year after year on  the same soil without any artificial aid. The Domiuiou Experimental Far mis located here, where native country  fruit, grain, trees and flowers  are  grown in great variety.    About  5 miles from the town lies the  famous "Harrisou   Hot Springs"  where so many wonderful cures  of rheumatism have been effected.  The water boils out  of   an  everlasting spring at a temperature of  100 degrees.     The  taste  is   not  unpleasant, iu fact   people  get to  like it, aud crowds are continually  about    the    spring   sipping   the  water.     Its curative   properties  must be good.   I meet people who  have   gone   there crippled with  rheumatism and have left cured  completely in less than a month.  The following'is taken from the  Bu8jr Man's Magazine. The  Arthur Deagon mentioned is a  brother of H. A. Deagon, of the  Moyie'Bakery. Ib appears under  the caption of Canada and Her  Drama.  Mr. Arthur Deagon  is   a   Canadian    actor  who   deserves   the  greatest credit for ��� what he has  accomplished in the player's profession, for there is no one arouud  to  boost   and   educate  him���he  gained what he   knows,   himself.  He was born iu Seaforth,  Canada,  whereever  that    is.       Anyway,  when he was twelve years old,  he  was working in an iron   mine in  Wisconsin, and four years later  made his appearance in a Dime  Museum in Chicago where he sang  baritone solos   not  only   in   one  performance, but in ten consecutive shows.   However, with  such  lusty perserverance, success was  bound to come, and Mr.  Deagon  has reflected much credit on his <  " Cherry-Blossom."  THE JAPANESE Q1VE dOOD EXAMPLE.  It is a proverb of Cherry Blossom  Land that a healthy stomach is the  basis of oil strength. Good nature ia  also recognized as of great importance.  Tho Japanese as a people are remarkable for their health, endurance, patience and skill. ,    ,,  The cherry tree is the most highly  prized of all in Japan. It not only  gives forth a beautiful blossom but the  ���wild cherry tree furnishes a bark whicn  is most highly prizedjn medicine.  *he United  States Dispensatory,  which   is   an  medicines, says  of   the  Wild Cherry  (Frunus Virginiana).  aye  3hc  P  We can print for you  Letterheads, Envelopes, Memo  Forms  The   Demaurez Propeller.  I  Bilsl of Fare, Invoices, Business  Cards,  C. O. Demaurez, onct> a jeweler  in Moyie, is making quite   a   success of his new propeller, an invention which he is just completing.   At Pernie the other day Mr.  Damaurez gave a demonstration  in the Elk Lumber yards.  ' It ran the model boat without  any trouble, and   proved  beyond  the shadow of a doubt that Mr.  Demaurez, through careful study  and undying  effort has attained  a mastery over the air that many  men have   tried   for   and   failed.  The practical   test revealed the  fact   that   this  propeller would  run a boat of  any size, and also  that   the   propeller if required,  could   be   used for automobiles,  hand cars, or any mode of navigation.   The  working parts  consist of: Filling tank with water by  opening .valve on pipe, the  water  by    its  own   pressure comes  up  through holes into mid air.   The  paddle wheel revolve - by   motive  power and picks up the  water in  mid air and throws it aft.     The  wTtW"fimisTffo"re~sistance==uutili=it  strikes   the   air   pressure  downwards; the water is then cut off j  downwards   aud   forced   against  the incline; the water  runs back  to the intake and back into tbe  tank keeping the   tank   full  and  the air is returned or sucked up  again by the air drum.  The paddle wheel by throwing  the water aft gives a forward  push on the boat and as there is  no back resistance to the water  on the air cushion but to the  contrary by the air forcing the'  water downward on the incline;  this gives a forward push on the  boat, and in consequence there is  a forward push on both sides of |  the machine.  There is no power lost excepting by friction and to elevate the  water above the incline.  Everything in fact,  authority on  mcu.w..~~, ���. -   - -  properties of this Black Cherrybark  "Uniting   with   a   tonic   power   tho  Sror-erty of calming irritation_ and  iininishing nervous excitability.  Adapted to the treatment of diseases  iu which there is debility of the stomach or of the system." Another authority, King's American Dispensatory Rays, "it gives tone and strength  to the system, useful in fever, cough,  and found ^excellent in consumption."  This ingredient is only one of several,  very important native, medicinal roots ;  in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. This is a remedy which has enjoyed the public approval for nearly  forty years, nothing new or untried  about it, has cured thousands of people  of those chronic, weakening diseases  which are accompanied by a cough,  such as bronchitis and incipient consumption. More than that, by reason  of the other ingredients, Bloodroot,  Mandrake, Golden Seal, and Queen's  root, all of ��� tho medicinal virtues of  which are scientifically extracted and  combined in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, remarkable cures of  dyspepsia and stomach disorders have  been accomplished.  Nearly forty years ago, Dr. Pierce  discovered that chemically puro glycerine of proper strength is a better  solvent and preservative of the active  medicinal principles, residing in most of  our indigenous or native medicinal  plants than is alcohol. ...As its use is  entirely unobjectionable, while alcohol  is well known when used even in  small portions, for'a protracted period,  to do lasting injury to the human system, especially in the case of delicate '  women and children, he decided to  use chemically pure glycerine instead  of the usually employed alcohol in  the preparation of 'his medicines.  He found that the glycerine, besides  being: entirely harmless, possesses intrinsic medicinal properties of great  value. Its nutritive properties, Dr.  Pierce believes, far surpass those of  cod liver oil, entitling it to favorable  consideration in all cases of incipient  consumption and other wasting diseases.  It is an invigorating, tonic alterative  and owes its virtues to Nature's vege-i  table garden. Dr. Pierce is only the  scientific gar-  As cheaply, neatly and quickly  Nature's Garden:  As anyone  Call us up by telephone and we  will send arouud; or if you  Pefer call on  dener  .who  : . knows how to  combine the plants given us by Nature  to cure our diseases.    This preparation is  of pleasant taste, agrees perfectly   with   rebellious   and ��� sensitive  stomachs, and is extremely effective in  restoring tone and vigor to the entire  system.   It cures inflammatory troubles  of the stomach as well as indigestion  and   dyspepsia   arising    from' ��� weak  stomach.   One reason why it restores  the health of run-down, pale and emu,-  ciated people is because it first throws  out the poisons from the blood through  the liver and kidneys.   It then begins  its reconstructive work in building up  flesh by first making good, rich, red  .blood.  , The "Golden Medical Discovery" is  made in a large laboratory, thoroughly  equipped with every scientific appliance,  at Buffalo, N. Y. Qualified chemists  are in charge of the laboratory, with  nearly a score of skilled physicians and  surgeons employed to scrutinize, determine and prescribe these remedies and  other means of cure as seem best suited  to many thousands of cases of chronic  diseases which come before them for  treatment each year. It costs you nothing to write to Dr. E. V. Pierce���tho  head of this Institution, at Buffalo, N.  Y. and get an accurate medical opinion  in your special case and wholly without  ^charge.  iA few dollars invested in   Moyie  real    estate    will  bring    the    best  kind    of   results.
