It was anything   but  midsummer    weather,    however,    and  shower after  shower  drenched  the  merry-makers   to   the   skin.      The  carrying out of  the   large   program  of sports proved a  difficult   matter,  but somehow or other the committee  managed to  pull   off   the    various  events,  and   towards evening all of  them had been decided with the exception  of the tug  of war,   which  was declared a tie, and is  to be decided on Labor Day.  The  pavilion    was   of course  in  other events include aquatic sports,  rock-drilling and a series of Caledonian sports. The local representative in the Provincial Legislature,  Wm.

Blasting- Accident  While engaged at his regular occupation  as  "blaster"   on Wednesday   morning,   Geo.   Mattocks,    an  employee   of the  Granby mine, had  the misfortune  to meet with   a very  serious  accident.      At  the time of  the mishap he was engaged in loading a round of holes and was starting  to place   the   powder   in   the  lower  oi\es.      Mattocks had placed a couple   of sticks   in   one   hole and was  pushing   them  down with the usual  powder stick when an explosion occurred, badly shattering  both of his  hands    and     driving   the    wooden  tamping  stick    through   the   fleshy  part   of his   leg,   inflicting   an   ugly  and   very   dangerous   wound.     His  condition was   discovered   by  some  muckers and surgical aid was quickly summoned.     At  the  time  of going  to   press,   Mr.   Mattocks   was  suffering severely,   but the doctors  express   the belief  that  some hope(  is   entertained    of   saving   his   left  hand.  Two fingers of his right hand  were amputated on Thursday.   ,���*   Local Road Construction  The heavy rains are seriously impeding the work on the construction  of the new government highways in  the Grand   Forks  district, but with  anything   like     reasonable   weather  the   two   gangs   now   working    towards  each   other  should  meet   in  about another five weeks.   A stretch  of one    mile   now   separates  Jos.  Darragh's     gang     from     that    of  McLaren's,   and    the   right-of-way  has also been  cleared  of the heaviest stumps.

' r      ���   -'  Extraordinary Surgery  Remarkable statements to the  effect that the organs of dead men  had been put into the bodies of live  men in surgical experiments on the  battlefields at Janina, are contained  in a letter George F. Viett of Norfolk, Va., has received from M.  Cremedas, a young Greek who  recently left the United States to  fight against the Turks. According to his letter there were only ten  fatalities outj of ninety cases. He  attributes the remarkable experiments to Dr. Valois Damien, a  Paris physican.  The physican stated in his   letter,  brought    ninety   wealthy    patients  from Paris  suffering  with   diseased  kidneys and other affected   organs,  and established an invalid's camp at  Pliilates, a small town, fifteen miles  from Janina.    He sought permission  of the King to remove organs from  the bodies of soldiers just killed, but  was unable to obtain an audience until one of the invalids had contributed  a battery to the King's arm}'.  Commanders   of the   divisions at  the front were  given orders lo send  Dr. Damien al! recently killed  soldiers that  he   needed.    The   experiments then commenced.      Upon the  receipt of. the dead body the   doctor  and   his   assistants    proceeded    to  transfer the healthy and   still   living  organs desired from   the  corpse   to  the  body   of   one  of  his   patients.  Old men on the verge of the  grave  from    Bright's    disease     had    the  source of their trouble removed and  the healthy organs  of some strong  man put in.their place.   These transfers are said to have included no less  than three of the vital bodily organs,  and numerous  small operations,   in  which forty were a complete success,  while there was only a   loss   of   ten  Concentrates  Canada ranks fourth in the world  among countries using the telephone.

"Among the original inhabitants  of England,"  he said, "women occupied a domineering position.   She  spent her   life in  boundless   liberty.  Now   this   original    population,   in  contrast   with   that-of  the "rest  of  Western   Europe, "has  managed to  remain comparatively pure, whereas  there has been constant retrogression of the Anglo-Saxon stock.      In  London   only    one-seventh   of   the  people are blonde.  "It is therefore no wonder that  fourteen hundred years of Anglo-  Saxon rule has not sufficed to keep  back instincts which for more than  4000 years were permitted to develop unhindered among the original inhabitants."  Dr. Pokorny finished by warning  his hearers against "the terrible  consequence of woman's franchise,"  which he predicted would drive  every " state into socialism and  anarchy.

But   in view of a  recent warning- issued by the British  authorities,   it   might   serve   h  very  useful purpose if the, press throughout the Dominion, and  especially in  the   west,   were   to   emphasize   the  astonishing   fact that  the   marriage  of   a   Canadian   girl   to   a   French  subject or even a Frenchman naturalized   in   Canada   was   not  legal   in  France.     Of course   such   a   union  is valid   in Canada,   but if the husband  dies   and leaves   property   or  money   deposited in   a bank within  the   French   dominions,     his    Canadian wife has absolutely   no claim  whatever on the estate.     Under the  French   law,   except   under certain  conditions, she   is  not  his wife and  the children of such a marriage are  illegitimate.      The   warning  of the  British   government   was issued  on  account of the  many Frenchmen in  London   who   had   contracted  marriages -with  English girls and later  deserted   them   to   negotiate   other  alliances in France.

For  nine   weeks   the  whole   of the personnel   of the fleet  were   denied anythiBg   more than a  few hours leave of absence.     Every  ship   was   fully   coaled   and    steam  was  constantly   kept   up night and  day.

Mean-  That Oriental Wave  The question of Oriental immigration   into   Canada promises   to   become more and more acute.    Within a very short while, if   the present  rate of  entry   keeps  up, the matter  promises   to   eclipse   in   importance  every other issue of the day.     For a  time the   $500   head   tax proved an  admirable remedy, but now that the  moneyed Chinese  merchants on the  coast have surmouned that obstacle  by advancing   the   money  to the incoming    Mongolians,    some    other  and   more   effective   safeguard   will  have to be found.     It is not a party  matter.     The   danger   is a national  one.

Not  more than 2,56X1 acres will be leased to  one applicant.  Application for a lease must bo made  by the applicant in person to the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which the rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land must  be described by 'sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unsur-  'veyed territory the tract applied for  shall be stake��l out by the applicant  himself.  Each application must be accom  panied by a fee of $5 which will be refunded if the rights applied for are not  available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the merchantable  ... output of the mine at the rate of five  cen ts per ton.  The person operating the mine shall  furnish the Agent with sworn returns  ace Minting for the full quantity of  me; chantable coal mined and pay the  royalty thereon. If the coal mining  rights are not being operated, such returns should be furniblied at least once  a year.  The lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may be considered  necessary for the working of the mine  at the rate of $1.0.00 an acre.
