In the' issue of August 21 of that,  sparkling .yVestern weekly, tlio Argonaut, there is an article by Miss Geral-  dlne. .JJonn.er, bearing tlie ubuve'title.  Among other interesting things the  writer says : ������������'���������-��� ������  'IThere'"'''is.-'something so completely  foreign, so ''vividly pibturesoue about  this part of Canada, its villages, its life,  and its people, that one is in a continual  state'of query as 'to -whether one can  be on the same continent vvith Triumphant Democracy and New York.  If you could eliminate the American  summer visitors, with their sophisticated clothes andcarriages, you might  readily imagine yourself in the rural  Canada of the French occupation;  tiiere might still bean Inteudaut at  Quebec, the roi soleil might lie dispensing rewards and punishments from  Versailles. _ .  Outside the invasion of the Americans and the building nf a hotel among  the pines above the wharf, I do not  suppose..;this particular village lias  changed much in the past hundred  years.-1 /Thesame families live in the  same spots, if- not in tlie same houses.  Many of the farms���rented from tiie  seigneurs in long ribbons of land that  run ' back 'from the river's edge into  dimly wooded distances���have been in  the hands of one family for a century  and a half. ,; Tho village, nearest the  St. Lawrence is a straggling irregular  line.of. solidly built habitan houses,  made'oT logs/Jilted; together; at -.the  angles, the -cracks filled with a coarse  plaster./.'

They  have maintained their village almost  intact, have preserved their individuality in the ("ace of the encroaching Anglo-Saxon, with no diminution  of any social characteristic: lsave kept  the language of their 'forebears, ' serenely ignoring the tongue.of the summer visitor. "'Cu.lcohe-d.rivers, 'svho  have been piloting well-to-do strangers over the face of the country  lor twenty years, nave learned nothing  of their language.

They arc the best exponent* of the  Simple Life on our side of the water.  When Kriegolf painted them, perpetu-  ating a period in the lifuxof a people by  a series of pictured scenes, they lived  in the manner that Herr Warner.  appvoyes.'. Since then;their ideas have  enlarged, new desires and ambitions'  have srpung into life. But even so,  they present to tlte Amuricuu au extraordinary example of an unaspiring  and contented race. The women still  8-pin .the h -mespun cloth���1' eti.lt'.. Uu  pays���which the men wear. ��� Driving  inland you may see these housewives'  sitting in the doorways of tlieir-homes  spinning at their wheels..   -You seem  about tlie doorsill, many children play  ���little, wild creatures, with shy'dark  SEIGNEUlt'e^es looking out through drooping  curls of brown hair. The spinniug  woman is the mother of them all, and  probably has grown sons and daughters out at service iu the towns, or  married and settled on the farms near  by. .They marry young���singularly  young fora northern race���-anda baby  every .j-ear or two till they aro over  forty is the record of many of theun.  In the past, families that ran up into  the twenties were not uncommon. I  have heard (whether or not tiiere is  any truth iii the statement! have no  means of knowing) that in the old  French days it was customary to dedi-  the twenty-fifth child to the church.  One of the most curious things  about the habitans of these two villages is .that so many of them"have  English names. Among the shopkeepers and caleche-drivers there are  Warrens, Harveys, Baileys, McLeans  and McNichols. The names- have  been Frenchified into almost unrecognizable strangeness. To know what  they originally were you have to see  them written. Their bearers as a rule  speak no word of English, and the  stranger puzzle., over the anomaly ofa  McNichol shouting to his horse in  quaint old French, and a Bailey���  dressed in rusty homespun, a short  black pipe in tiie corner of his mouth  ���discoursing with his companions in  a patois which sounds as if it had been  spoken in rural France before the  .Revolution.  To account for this engrafting of  British names on a people so strikingly Gallic, one has to go back to history. '.'After.''.the conquest of Quebec by  :Wolfe/, two officers of the Seventy-  Ninth Highlanders were granted  sei'gtieurit s siloing the '"Murray Klvcr.'  iTtiese were Captain Fraser and Captain Nairn, both Scotchmen. Theirs  were the lirst, and, I believe, the only  seigueJiial grants made by the English. All the great seigneuries of  Lower Canada, whose occupation aud  history reads like a chapter of romance, date from the old regime of the  French. Some���not many���of them  are to-day inhabited by the descendants of the original owners, who bear  names that go back to tho noblesse of  the Grand Monarque's day, but that is  another story.  Captain Fraser und  Captain  Nairn  took possession of tlieir   seigneuries,  and���perhaps-in-order-notatobe!onelyr  ���brought, with them adisbahded com  THINGS TALKED OF IN NELSON DURING  THE W EEK.  The mistakes of. young -Englishmen I neighbors, and will even 'sit on   theh  in Canada, who have failed to grusp  j the real meaning of Canadian slang,  are so numerous as to be scarcely a sub-  joct of comment, but one happened recently iu Nelson thnt will stand repetition. The landlady ofa popular hotel  a few weeks ago engaged ii young Englishmen as a porter. The other day  she handed' this porter a $2 bill, and  asked him to go out and get some  "chicken-feed,"meaning, of course,  small change. In a few minutes he returned, and on being interrogated as to  the change, he replied there was no  change. Asked how���. was that, he  said, he had gone down to Brackman  & Ker's and bought the full $2 in  "chicken-feed," and further informed  the landlady that two bags of the stull'  would be delivered at once. It is needless to sity small change will no longei  be referred to as "chicken-feed"' in  that hotel.  this' was repeated several times, the  speaker realized that the man from  Bruce was not deaf, but only desired  to annoy the speaker. Then Mr.  Woodworth turned on his would-be  tormentor and delivered himself as follows :  On August 14th,  the following sor-      "Mr' Sgettker, when the final sum-  rowful announcement appeared inthe  mons�� shall come, and  the Angel Gab-  front doorstep while the persecuted one  is trying to drive the pests away.  There should.he a law enacted to abate  this nuisance, and punish severely the  owners of chicken ranches.  Interest in Sabbath Observance was  revived by the appearance, here this  week of one of the leading officers of  the Lord's Day Alliance. A fairly  well attended meeting was held in the  Baptist Church, Monday evening, and  it was decided to pursue an aggressive  campaign iu the hope of bringing  about a more general observance of the  Sabbath Cay. Of course this ia very  pleasing to The Economist, which,  while it is no the ollleial organ of the  Lord's Day Alliance, has always stood  up for the principle advocated by that  organization. At the same time, this  paper must confess its sorrow that the  former leader of tbis movement in Nelson is not now showing thesame fighting spirit that he did formerly.' If he  bad it is not likely that the brass baud,  excellent musical organization tliat it  is, would be permitted to desecrate the  Sabbath by play I ng at the park. Nor  would the Marconi Wireless people  have chartered bsats on Sunday to advertise their business, if tlie acknowledged leader of the Sabbath Observance movement had placed the matter  in its true light before the public, it  is not a defence for the said leader to  plead that he has been driven out of  the Alliance by political enemies, for  happily the platform of the Alliance is  so broad and comprehensivee that men  of all parties can stand upon it without  jostl ing eaclrotlieri Some" be tier reaT  son than this will have to be forthcom-  panv oftheir'regiirient.

T. G. Procter is in receiptor inquiries every day a- to the future prospects  of Nelson from an industrial pointof  view. One inquiry this week came  from Mexico, which proves tbat the  active member of thc Tourist Association is winning fame in all lauds.  Residents in Victoria who own  pretty gardens have often'been accused  of selfishness, because they surrounded  tlieir houses with high board fences.  But experience gained in Nelson leads  one to believe that the Victorians are  wise in their generation. Since Nelson pesple have turned tlieir attention  from mines to chicken raising, anyone who desires to cultivate a garden must build a fence six or seven  feet high, othervise his plot will become the scratching ground for his  neighbor's chickens.

Mr. Woocfworth was one of the greatest  stump speakers in Canada in his time,  and on the platform or in the-House  was quick at retort. Mr. Salter takes  great pleasure in telling how his idol  once squelched the member for Bruce.  It was in tlie .Dominion House, and  Mr. Woodworth, during the progress  of his speech, was repeatedly interrupted by the member for Bruce with  cries of "Louder! louder." At first  Mr. Woodworth thought the member  was deaf, and accordingly raised his  voice. But the man from Bruce kept  shouting, "Louder, louder."     When  Thos.

Any suggestion that R T. Lowery  was responsible in any way for tiie  weekly fires at Fernie, may now be  said to be fully disposed of inasmuch  as tlie fires occur with tlie same regularity when he is absent as they did  while'he resided in Fernie.  Lord Strathcona eats only one meal  a day. The Dominion Government  should increase his salary so that the  High Commissioner could afford two  meals and a light lunch.  The entertainment of royalty costs  British society each year, fully $10,-  000,000:or just about the amount the  mayor of Nelson spends per year in  lawsuits.  Prophet Dowie has issued a decree  lhat every family in Zion must produce one buby per annum. If tho  prophet lived iu Nelson, he would not  be under the painful necessity of making such an order.  Aid. Malone has gone down to tlie  coast, and may succeed in getting a  publisher for his new book entitled,  "The Lost Mayor, or He Never Came  Back."  The fact that John G. Devlin was  observed carrying a. bag of 'samples  along Baker street yesterday, seems to  induce the belief thut we are ou the  eve ofa great revival in tlie mining industry.  James Neelnnds hopes to leave for  Alberta in a few days, and may be induced to take part in the elections in  the new proyince, possibly us a candidate, if there is a shortage in the supply.  W. A. Thurman and family spent a  few days at Kaslo this week.  There are few things which are so  full of mystery, or which make such a  powerful appeal to the imagination, as  the stories of the ships that sail gallantly out to sea and of which nothing  is ever heard of or seen after the masts  have dipped below the horizon. At  present the papers are full of the records of these marine tragedies. Today it is the Cloverdale. which left  Hong Kong for Vladivostok, and of  which no trace has been found for over  two months; yesterday it was the  Royalist, which cleared a few days later from Singapore to Hong Kong and  has never reached her destination ; the  day before it was the Id um, from Norway ."which has vanished from human  seen   from   the   beach   at   Deal   sail-  TTTTT  QTPA    ll,K    towarcl    the    Go��dwin   Sand*  i-Ll-Li J_��X_AjShe was a fair picture to look on, an  she moved over the waters with her  stately spread of sails. But as the eyes  of the watchers followed her she was  seen to pause, and within a few seconds she vanished utterly from their  view. What caused this tragically  sudden disappearance of a stately  ship ? This is another of the countless  secrets which the ocean has in jealous  keeping.  The first attraction at the Opera  House will be MargaretNevillein "The,  Lady of Lyons," on  the evening or  Sept. 18.  His many friends in Nelson, who  have helped him to celebrate his numerous birthdays, will rejoice to leant.,  that Prof. Hepburn is organizing a  dancing class at Fernie.  A four-foot sidewalk is now being:  laid along the principal thoroughfares  view ; and so on, through the long list in Fairview.     The new school will be  of ships that have sailed and disappeared.  What are the secrets of these mysterious vanishlngs of stately ships  with their crews and cargoes?

To this day noone knows what  became of the City of Glasgow, which  set her sails so gallantly in the Mersey  .half a century or so ago, bouud for  Philadelphia, nor was she seen again  after the hills of Wales were lost to  view.  The Burvie Castle left London some  years ago on a long voyage to Australia. She should have made'a final call  at Plymouth, but she never came within sight of the Hoe, hor has human  eye ever seeri her from the day she  dropped down the Channel. It wus  o n May 10, 1854, that the Lady Nugent spread her sails at Madras with  367 ofthe Twenty-Fifth Madras Light  Infantry and other passengers on  board. Her destination was Rangoon',  but half a century has gone, and  neither Rangoon nor any other port  has sighted her.  Nearly two years later tlie Collins  liner, the Pacific, dropped down the  Mersey witii 180 souls on board. She  w as accounted one of the stoutest and  swiltest vessels of her time���and so no  doubt, she.was. __But_she went the way_  the City of Glasgow had gone a couple  of years earlier, and .for forty-nine  years has been lying at the bottom of  the sea���but where, none may know  t ill all secrets are revealed. The trading vessel Atlanta started a quarter of  a century ago, for a short cruise in Ber-  m udan waters, and from that day to  this no one knows what became of her  and the 250 people she carried.  On Jan. 28, 1870, the City of Boston  sailed from Halifax for England with  101 souls on bourd. She was an Iniunn  li ner, a tine ship, splendidly equipped  and handled ; but she, too, was destined too vanish from the face of the  wate rs.  The history of another Mill remembered ocean mystery was the President, a fine vessel, which was expected  at Liverpool in March, 1841. March  passed and Liverpool saw nothing of  her. The long delay in her arrival  eaused great anxiety, and the wildest  rumors began to be circulated. On  April 13 news came tliat her engines  and rudder hud beeu disabled in heavy  aboard; but  she never came, and it  appreaehed by sidewalk from almost  every point, which will be a great convenience to the pupils.  will   he   gazetted   in   October.    His  Honor Judge Wilson will take up his .  residence in Cranbrook.  Rev. E. P. Flewelling, formerly vicur  of the Church of England iu Phoenix,  but who has spent tbe last two years  in Dawson, is reported to have ac-  cepted'the rectorahip of the Church or'  England in Greenwood.  The Greenwood Times remarks that  lio oue has yet signified his: intention  of starting a daily paper at" Midway,"  although one paper, the Star, ia now  in the field, to say nothing of the report that another one will soon appear,  a complete second newspaper plant  being now.on the way.  The Highland mine, at Ainsworth,  which is just now doing development  work, has opened up some immense  shoots of ore. Crosscuts show over 85  feet in width of good concentrating  ore. The new vein on which they are  also doing work has shown continuous  values and oids fair to be as great a  producer as has the other on which the  main tunnels are-driven;   The Cranbrook Herald believes that  the best way to put out bush fires is to  prevent them. Enforce the law  against leaving live fires this time or  the year. Most of the big fires now  raging throughout East Kootenay have  originated by carelessness. Make tlie  penalty severe enough to prevent carelessness and thero will be a most satisfactory decrease in the number of fires.  The Fernie Ledger says that a visit  through the residence districts of that  city will convince one that Fernie is  enjoying a healthy growth. In every  addition new houses me being constructed, and lots are being graded and  beautified. These new buildings are  being built to meet the increasing do-  mand for additional bouses, and bespeaks the prosperity that now prevails  in Fernie.  Somo disatisfaction is expressed because the council has decided to abandon the original proposal to build b>  weather and that she had put into grand stand to accomodate 1000 people-  Madeira for ronnir*, and there naturally  or more; and substitute therefor a stand  that cannot seat more than 600 at the  outside.

PRESS COMMENT.  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  To" some it may occur that the  recent nude departure of the Doukc-  bobors is carrying the principle of  the Simple Life further than is  consistent with the ideals of modern civilization.  Saskatchewan Literals have prepared a very exhaustive platform,  the .fir. t plank of which affirms,  "Adherence lo Liberal principles."  Tbis proves that the Liberals of  Saskatchewan aie not altogether  lacking in the sense of humor.      ...  The one sorrowful note at the  conclusion of peace is sounded at  Glasgow, where the thrifty 'Scots-.  man bewails the cancellation, of  substantial orders for linens and  Canvas from both Japan a\.d Russia, as a result of the cessation of  hostilities.  Probably from inability tb find  any re; 1 defect in the administration of Provincial affairs-by the  Government, some of the Opposition newspapers are exercising a  malevolent ingenuity in attempt to  prejudice public opinion against  the Government by making false  aud abeurd statements respecting  its intentions or policy. We referred to one such statement respecting limber licences a few days  ago, and we had hoped that the  general disapproval expressed of  such ��� methods would have caused  those guilty Of them lo refrain from  similar conduct in the future. It  seems; however, thnt such anticipations are doomed to be disappointed.  Now another ridiculous rumor is  started to the effect that the Chief  Commir-sioner of Lands and Works  is considering the advisability of refusing to issue ;-ny more band loggers' licences and   possibly even, of  cancelling those in existence.      We  _*   -  net;d  scarcely say tbat   the   Chief  Commissioner has never had such  action under -consideration "or-said  or done anything that could in the  le tst degree be constructed as indicating such intention.

C.  1 lire as expressed by acts on the  the Statute Book; aud it is asserted  that the logs cut liy hand loggers  are being exported, llic Chief Commissioner proposes to: put an end to  the practice by the refusal of hand  lodging licences. While we think  there is.no question tliat the intention of the'Legislature to prohibit  entirely or as far as lay in its power,  the export of logs, it did not contemplate thutsuch prohibition could  be evaded as far as Iols cut under  hand loggers' licences are concerned. But .issuining that this is  an accurate view of the Legislature's  intention, and that it is being  evaded in the manner mentioned,  the refusal to issue hand loggers' licences would 'nut be the proper  manner in which the, Chief Commissioner should act. Rather, if by  any defect or emission in lhe draft-  i tTjj^oPihF^c^^^  Legislature is not being completely  carried but, tlie defector omission  should be cured by an amendment  of the Act. In that manner the  real intention of jthe Legislature  would be.aseertained by the discussion in the House that would ensue  on any proposed .amendment to the  present Act, and there would be no  doubt left on the subject, J��- any  case we can give the most authoritative denial, of. the intention attributed to the Chief Coramissinner.  ���News* Advertiser.

"So is the  Chaudiere," chirped the wise son  of the milkman.  To discover whether Witte is the  Kouropatkin of peace, it will' be  necessary for somebody to take him  ont and run him a foot race.  Before France tries to sea e Morocco, she should make sure that no  part of the yellow peril i.s encamped  on the northern coast of Alrica.  "I have no gieat desire to remain  in politics," says R.R Gamey; and  sqmehow you seem to see JR.  Stratton shouting "Hear, hear."

Shortly ofter "Walt "Whitman *��  "Leaves: of Grass" made Its appearance, J. T. Trowbridge was walking  with Lowell In Cambridge, when the  latter pointed out a doorway sign,  "Groceries," with the letters set zigzag-, to produce _ bizarre effect. "That,"  said he, "Is Walt Whitman���with very  common goods Inside."  A Philadelphia paper declares that  Archbishop Kyan was recently about  to take a train for Baltimore at the  Broad Street Station, when a young  man accosted him, saying: "Your face  Is familiar, where In "hell have I seen  you?" "I renlly don't know," reDlied  the 'archblshoTi, Mpindly; ''what part of  hell do you come from?"  Many yi'nrs ago, -when Senator Installs wan In the Senate, oleomargarine  =-��.asHHa-bone-ol'-contentlor.-.'-H=The-debate-  led Ing-alls to nlMer one of those epigrammatic .sentences which made him  famous. "I huv�� never, to my knowledge, tasted oleoma rffnrine," said In-  ralla, "but I have stood in the presence  of -genuine 'butter -with awe for its  strength and i everence for its antiqul-  ty."      ���' '   .. . . -  A lady carrying on mission work In  the slums was teaching a little colored  girl to sptvll. She used a pictorial  primer, and over each word was Its accompanying picture. Polly glibly  spelled "o-x, ox." arid "b-o-x, box," etc.  But tho teacher thought -that she was  making "right rapid progress." So she  put her hand over the picture, and  said. "Polly, what doos 'o-x' spell?"  "Ox," ans-wercd Polly, nimbly. "How  do you know that It spells 'ox,' Polly?"  "Seed ihis tail," replied u,e apt Polly.  A very popular Oxford dean, crossing  the quadrangle of Christ's College one'  day. was met by ��. number of under-,  graduates who -passed him without  "capping." The reverend gentleman  felt annoyed. "Do you know who 1  ii/in?" .he asked. "No, sir." "Then how  long have ynu been nt the-college?"  "Eight days, sir." "Indeed!" re-piled the  dean, sarcastically; "Well, in .that  oase, you stand excused. I know that  puppies do hot openthiMr eyes until the  ninth day." Arid then he resumed his  walk.        /  While he was In ' England, Mark  Twain says his head was once taxed as  gas works. He wrote. Queen Victoria  a friendly letter of protest, saying: "i  don't know you. 'but I've met your son.  He wa.s at the ']ie*ad of a procession ln  the Strand, and I was on a "bus." Years  afterward ;hP met the Prince of Wales,  now King. Ed-ward "V-U.,' at Homberg.  They hid a.lnnp walk and talk together. When bidding him good-by, the  Prince said: "I am glad to have met  you again." This remark tr-oubled  Twain, who feared that 'he had been  mistaken for someone else. He communicated this suspicion to the Prince,  who replied: "Why, don't you remember when you onet me ln 'the Strand,  and I was at the head of a procession,  and you were on a 'bus?"  Slason Thompson says that, the late  Eugene Field wiis fond of relating the  following- story'of James' ."Whitconil)'  Klley: "To beguile the ledlousness of  the return voyage from Europe, it waa  .'��� proposed' to fflv"a a concert'. In the saloon of the whip���an entertainment to  which all capable of amusing their fellow-voyagers should contribute. Mr.''  Riley was asked 'to recite-some of his  original poems, and, of course, he  cheerfully agreed to do so. Among the  number present at this mid-ocean entertainment, over which the kev. ^Myron Reed presided, were two Scotchmen, very -worthy gentlemen, en route  from the land o' oakes to the land of  biscuits, upon a tour of investigation.  These twain shared t'he enthusiasm  with which the auditors applauded Mr.  Riley's charming recitations. They  marveled that so versatile a genius  could 'have lived- ln a land reputed for  uncouthness and savagery. "Is it no  woriderfu', Donal," remarked one of  these Scots, "that a tradesman auld be  sic a bonnie poet?" "And Is he Indeed  a tradesman?" asked the one. "Indeed  he ls," answered the other: "did ye no  Hi-hear-the-do.mlnie-.|ntryJuc-eH-iiiin='as-ithe-  hoosier poet? Just think of lt, mon!���  Just think of sic a gude poet dividing  his time making-hooslery?"  Back at the Old Home.  IRVING BACHELLER, the. author.  tell3 a story of having gone back,  after many years' absence, to Ms  old country home in the New England  States. On the ruined doorstep of th��  old house stood the seedy remnant of  a once -noble race. He wore, amongst  other things, one suspender and a seed/  pair of trouws. The conversation ran  like this:  '.'Glad to see ye," ser -ho. "Thank*,**  says I. "We've 'h.ecrd about you," sez  he, "and they say you done noble."  "Well, and how are you?" says I.  "Porcly," sez he. "How's that?" says  r. "Jest makln' a bare llvln'," sez he.  "Why don't you go nway?" says \.  "Can't," sez he. "Why not?" says 1.  "Mortgaged," sez he. "That's too bad,"  saya I. " 'Tis," sea he. "You don't  seem to have much to live for," says 1.  "Don't want to live," sez he.' "You  might die," says I. "Can't," sez he.  "Why not?" saya I. "Mortgaged," sev.  he.  At  this point  they were joined  by  another old acquai  tance of Mr. Bachelor's���a man who for. years had held  a mortgage on every acre of the country-side.    "So you're Paul Bacheller's  boy?"  he said,   after scrutinizing   tho  visitor closely.    "The same," said Mr.  Bacheller.    "Y'^ll," said  Mr. Wallace,  reflectively, "ii  your father had kept  you  on  the  farm  It  would  not  have  looked   as   It  does   now."    Up   to  this  point the unfortunate, farmer who was  i mortgaged  had   '^.ken no j>art'[ln the  i ionversatlon!   Now, ho-vvever, a stran^i  i grin came across his face.  j     "That's right, Mr. Wallace." sez hs.  I "If he had been kept on the farm the  , farm would hev looked better, but he'd  I 'lev looked a damn sight worse."  j EI:s Thirteenth Question.
