At last a company has been organized for the purposo of puttjng in a
vyater system for the town > of n Moyie.
A meeting was held, in McMahons
Bros.' fjtqre building l?Tst Saturday
.evening and a permanent organization
was effected, with the following as a
list oi'diroctors, J. A.'Harvey, president :.J, P.Fiirrell, vice-president; A.
P, Mcdonald, secretary; Y', Desaulnier,
■trpasuror; J?. J. McMahon, W, L. Ile.id,
Andrew Johnston.
Immediate steps will be taken to have
the company incorporated and have
tho stock placed on the market, so
that moriey for doing this work will be-
raised in as short a time as possible.
The company will have a capitalisation
of $25,000, and shares will be placed on
the market for a period of 10 ' days at
50 cents each. After the expiration of
JO days the directors can use their
best judgement as to the price the remaining shares to.be sold can bo disposed of, -The par value of the shares
will bo $1.00. As much work' as possible will be done this ,fall before the
ground becomes frozen. It is the intention of the company to at least have
the dam built and have the main laid
to Victoria street by that time. Mr.
Harvey had charge of organizing tbe
company, and will act, as solicitor for
the same. '.' '        ' :
We Shall Try to Be There.
The following unique invitation has
been received at this' office from tha
Press Club of the Spokane Industrial
Exposition :
' "Ye Editor: We want you at the
fourth annual doings of the Spokane
Press Club Oct. 6.' The exposition
management wants you to see its prize
pumpkins j we want you tc forget
your troubles aud help us celebrate
Press Day; the combination will be an
easy one. Leave your paper in charge
of the office devil; change your shirt
and join us. We will give you a trolley
ride in the morning, and a visit to the
exposition in0 the afternoon. In the
early evening a big feed will happen.
Later the "High Jinks," introducing
all the latest sensations, will occupy
the time until sunrise. If we^overlook
anything we'll go hack for "it. The
police potrol wagon has been covered
and the weathermau has been subsidised: Send your- reply at. once on
atat-tched card."
■ We are, in the same fix, as the editor
of tho Cranbrook Herald, who says he
has "squared" the "devil," and if someone will kindly leave a /-wash'' hanging out over night and chain' up the
dog, he-will be enabled to comply with
the shirt proposition.
A SlnKor of >Totc.
The concert, given in the Odd Fellows' hall last Saturday evening by T.
J. Scott, one of Canada's sweetest
tenor singers, assisted by local talent,
was a success in every way, notwithstanding tho unsettled condition of the
weather. Mr Scott sang songs, told
stories and kept his audience in good
humor all the while. In singing he
was accompanied on the piano by Mrs.
L. M. Mansfield. Mrs. Watkins sang
a couple of solos, accompanied by Dr.
Higgina, and took part iu a duot with
Mr". Scott. There were select readings
by Ilev. Dunn of Moyie and Mr. Fortune of Cranbrook, and Mr. John
Hunter, of the Manhattan hotel,
favored the audience with one of his
favorite Scottish solos.

Old world privilege and restrict ion
reign supreme in Spain, where there is
a law tliat no siibji-.-t shall touch the
person of the king or queen.
■ Alfonso XIII nearly buffered a severe fall from this rule- in his childhood. Au auut of his made hiiu a present cf a swing. When he used it for
the -lirst time, thy motion frightened
him, aud he begiin to cry, whereupon a
lackey lifted him (jiiiotly out of it and
so. no doubt, preserved him from falling.   ' ' ■,
The breach of etiquette, however,
was flagrant and dreadful. The queen
was obliged to puiiish.it hy dismissing
the man from his post. At the same
time she showed her real feelings on
the subject by appointing him immediately to another and better' place in
the royal household.
In another case a. queen of Spain
nearly lost her" life in a dreadful way
owing to tills peculiar rule. She bad
been thrown when out riding, and, her
foot catching in the stirrup, she was
dragged; Her escort' would not risk
interference, and she would have been
dashed to pieces but for the heroic Interposition of a young man who stopped the horse and released her from
lier dangerous position.
As soon as' tlic-y saw she "was safe
her escort turned to arrest the traitor
who had dared to touch the queen's
foot, bill he was not to be seen. Know-
lug well the penalty he had'Incurred,

"Kless - their ' hearts, how tbi-y do enjoy

can she know anything of the after ef

She has lier work to do, and it suits her

She Itode Free,
. A'woman who had come out of the
west, where she'had been a cow girl on
n ranch, was boarding a, car in this
city recently. , She bad just placed her
foot u{)oi) the step and was preparing
to take another step to the upper platform when, with a furious "Step lively!" the conductor pulled the strap.
The car jerked forward,' and the western woman swayed back for a minute,
. then just.'caught herself iu time to prevent a bud fall upon the cobbles.
■She confronted the conductor with
angry eyes—eyes that had looked undismayed Iuto those of mighty horned
monsters of the prairies.
"What do you mean by starting the
car-before I was'on It?" she asked.
"Cun't-nwait all day for you, lady,"
the "conductor suarled. . "JusYstep inside there.".
•in a moment the western woman,
with a backward golf sweep of the
arm, lunged for the conductor's head.
He dodged.' The blow sent bis hat
splinting back into the track. . The,
woman entered the car and sat down.
She was (lushed, but dignified. While
the other women passengers were rather startled, they all knew just how she
felt. Then the car stopped, while the
conductor went back for his hat The
western woman rode free tliat time.—

A graduate of Coim-11 university writes
on "How a Girl Can Work Her Way
Through College" in Ladies'.Home Journal and argues that the penniless girl
determined to gain a collegiate education
can and will readily get it. Typewriting
and bookkeeping, she holds, are helpful to
such an uiidei-tnking. while the student
may also earn money hy giving dancing
lessons, playing the piano, conducting lit-
,orary or history classes, fchoir singing, tutoring, conducting co-operatice hoarding
clubs, selling hooks; stationery, millinery
and'articles of dress furiiL-bings, making
and .-selling couch pillows, covers aud
room decorations, cleaning ,and mending
„clothing, hairdressing.. cuiiductiug agencies, writing advertisements, writing and
illustrating for newspapers and magazines, etc.- This fair graduate points out
many roads which will take through college "the blight, energetic- girl who is not

At one musicjjarty at Count Tolstoi's
a lady's singing displeased the count's
boys, and they adjourned to another

lost patience and went after them, and
a characteristic admonition ensued.
"Are you making a uoise on purpose?" he asked.
After some hesitation came an answer in the affirmative, "Y-y-yes."
"Does not her singing please you?"
"Well, no. Why docscshe bowl?" declared one of the boys, with vexation.

singing?" asked Lyeff Nikolaevitch In a

.A Famona  London Tavern. •
The Mermaid was the name of a famous London tavern frequented by
noted literary men and actors during
the reign of Queen Elizabeth. All the
wit and talent of the timo assembled
there for convivial enjoyment-' Authors have made'it the scene of great
mind combats between such men as
Shakespeare, Ben Jonson," Beaumont,
Fletcher, Selden, Carew, Donne and-
others of reverential memory. It was
the gathering place .of the' celebrated
Mermaid club, the origin of which is
ascribed to Sir Walter Raleigh. The
Meruiald tavern was located In Bread
street and was handily reached from
three thoroughfares, so .that it has been
often referred to iu various ways. The
Mermaid in Bread street, the Mermaid
iu Friday street and .the Mermaid in
Cheap street were, however, all one
and the same. It was the nearest to
Bread street. ' The Mermaid was destroyed lu the great London fire. There
were other Mermaid taverns, one iu
Cheapside and another in Coruhill; but
they had no such associations as clung
to that of Bread street

was a detestable person. She believed
thoroughly in the test that a fool and his

money and no heirs, but like all mieera

She was in no wise & charitably disposed individual, though tlie fact of her
giving-, a home to her orphaned nieoe
might Imply that she was. But no one
would think so if he knew in whatma#v
ner the home was held out,
"Dear Malvina," she wrote. "As you
cannot, starve, I suppose I must take

And poor Malvina, whose organ had
rendered her a meek and miserable
mortal, responded weakly:

Fin-ally, to litra. Smithers' utter horror, the family pbytripian had to be
!Nror wa-s this the worst. After prescribing all sorts of villainous compounds, which Miss Malvina's organ rejected with scorn, Dr, Calomel insisted
that Miss Malvina should come to his
private sanitarium, known as the Kest.
Mrs. Smithers was as one demented/
Bhe fumed and raged aud almost tore
her falee-hair, for theboord alone, without medical attendance, was $25 fi week,
But Dr. Calomel was quite as determined ae ohs was, and at last, after
a fearful atrnggle, he won the day,
Mrs. Smithers dan hord-ly be said to
have given in graciously, for as soon
ou the doctor went away she flounced
into the miserable little hall room she
allowed Miss Malvina, and where the
poor thing was having a wrestling-
'match"with'her organ, ^nd exclaimed,
vindictively t
"I wiab. that 'organ' of youra was in
Gehenna!" ;      ,
Poor Malvina! she wished ao, too, if
she diidn't have to accompany it there,
but it was not tranaplanfted iust for
the wishing, ,■'',. '
A. few days later, in fear and trembling-, Miss Malvina drove up in
Dr, Calomel's own neafrly-appointed
brougham to the door of the Rest.
At the time of her arrival there were
only three other patients—-Mrs. Weeks,
a chronic dyspeptic; Miss Paine, a combination invalid, and an old gentleman
who was a bundle of hervea.
It was against the latter individual
that Miss Malvina was particularly
w-anned, 'the slightesrtirritating circurn^
stance onusang him to tear his hair and
'Fire!"   ;
For a weekMis«'.Malvina rented, lying
quietly on a neat lit/tie white bedstead,
gnring at harmoniously-tinted walla.
On the eighth day she was bo much im-
At a quarter of nine   Mrs. ^Week's
dropped a domino.   Coi, Wilds shrieked
"Fire!" and they ^'ere al! carried off'
and pufr'to b£ii like babies. .
In' consequence of ithe excitement
Mrs, Weeks and Misc Paine went to rest
for another week, and the folio-wing
evening Miss Malvina and'CoL Wilds sat
doiwn to "a tete-artete game.  „
I>Iiss Malvina could not help noticing
how JianidsQine her former lover had become, and how highly polished- and
pink hia bald head was,
They were having, a moat charming
game, when suddenly a moth ','miller
sputtered into the gas and fell whizzing-
among -the dominoes.
.Immediately Col. Wilds went off.
' Poor Miss Malvina was so overcame
she scarcely knew what to do. '4Srot
liking to sit, gazing at- heir old friend,
who was behaying himself In a most
childish and foolish manner, she hits*
tily (arose, and, walking across the room,
took from her-> pocket a small box from
which ehe extiaoted an "excitement
pill," which she swallowed, , ' *
In> a naoment the colonel was at her
"Miss Malyin&l" ha cried, ''what is
it"?   You orei-ill!"
'flt'a only my orgs^,?r faltered Miss
In his courtly synvpaithy Col. Wilds
forgot his own ilia.
After this for a" week .he and Miss
Malvipa sat down tete-a-tete, and during that time .he never once eKhibi't&cl
a perve, and she almoet forgot fchnt s2v>
ever had an organ.
But happiness in. thi& world is 8h»rt
liyed and Fate is a cruel ^ade.
On the eighth evening, when t-he colonel and Miss Malvina were enjoying
the most harmoriiious game of dominoes
they Imd yet played, and when,each was
touchhigly reluatant to beat the other,
a note was brought to Miss M&lvino.
• She tore it open and read;
"Dear Malvina—I pay for'no well persons.
I hear that you have entirely recovered, pnd
that that miserable organ of youra performs Its functions like a Christian,
"Come home at once."
Misa Malvina laid down, the note and
a tear fell among the dominoes.-
"My dear Miss Malvina 1" cried the
colonel, sympathetically, ."wibat' is
troubling you?   Tell ine, I beg!'!
"Alae! Ool. Wilds, l"must-leave this
haven of reet."
"But why?" .     • *•'•'"
"My aurit refuses to pay my board
any longer,"
"Allow me to do sol" '%iT ''
"Oh! Col. Wildel"
"Why not? I'm a millionaire, un*
married and of age!"
Miss Malvina blushed like? a schoolgirl.
"You areoo kind—mit what would
the world say?" ■
''Nothing, if you will follow my
wishes." ..     ..■._. - -       •'.... -*,.
' ''What are they?" inquired Miss Malvina, innooenitly.
"Be my wife-" -      ' -»«wY
"But Col. Wilds, my organ?"
''No objection, whatever," answered
the colonel, cheerfully; "it counteracts
my nerves."   ,
Poor Miss Malvina; all the puiysios in
the world had been tried' uponi her arid
all had failed,.for no , one hod ever
'thought of giving her a dose ol happi-
nesB. That dose beiag administered,
her recovery vvas rapid and complete,
One day there was a quiet little wedding'at The Heat, and afterwards, as
Miss Malvina—Miss Malvina. no longer
