Prices are ciown to rock bottom, and the selling capacity  of this business is the power  by whicli we control and distribute bargains.  The more business we muss  together the better chances we  give you to be thrifty.  Developing thi3 into a departmental store is bringing  the crowds in greater numbers  and special values are snapped  np in a hurry.  The reason .vhy things move  so quickly may be that you do  a good deal or looking before  you come here..

Monl.. and indications arc that the hulk or the capital coining inlo North Ivoolenay for  the next year will he American. The  American mining man understands  Kootenay properties 'unci Kootenny  methods in a way that the Englishman does not. The average British  capitalist who comes out here to go  into mining expects to. pick up War  Eagle's and Le Roi's on every street  corner, lie wants n dividend paying  mine, for which ho is prepared to pay  a quarter or half a million, ignoring  the fact llml lie could taken few likely prospects and in a short time con-_  vert them into profitable shippers for  less than a quarter of tfiu amount.  The shrewd American, however,  knows the ropes, buys claims for a  few thousand dollar..,' throws some  development work into them, and  stands good chances of quadrupling  his investment llie next time an English investor comes along.  There is no reason why our own  prospectors iind claim owners should  not make this profit themselves, as  many of i-hem have. The man who  has one good claim and puts it couple  of years intelligent hard work into it  has better chances of making his pile  than the prospector who t.ies himself  up with half a dozen prospects which  keeps his; nose, to ground doing assessment work. Under the British Columbia laws claims are big enough lo  satisfy everybody bul,the hogs, and  the mining hog does no good to any  country. So manv- hundred chums  are now .slaked "in. North Kootenay  that "only the best, of .them have a  chance to sell at, all, and those which  are opened up on common senso principles, and not merely by a few gopher  holes nro the ones that will fetch tlie  fancy prices.-  SILVER MINES.,  It will encourage tho struggling  miners in this part of the country who  have been hoping so many yours .for a  revival in silver mining to-read llie  following from the Denver Times:  Tho mining mon of the west state  "that thore is a grow ing deiniind~foF  silver properties from eastern investors and that this demand has grown  to a considerable size during the past  month. ' They admit that even before  there was some basis upon which to  lie found tlie belief that the Indian  mints would do something for the  white metal, there was ."in increasing  demand for such propoitics, hut insist  lhat the present demand is above  tho normal. Copper properties have  felt tlie impetus of hotter times for  Uie past year, and here in Colorado  the demand has been greater thnn'' al  any time sinco the panic. Others are  alfen feeling the effects of nn increased  demand, and from present indications  it will not he. long until the good old  times when fortunes were made in the  mines will again bo with -js. .Those  who claim to be in a position to know  assert lhat lhe investors in the east  are shrewd enough to foresee that the  territory acquired by the United  States as a result of the war will demand a larger use of silver coin, lhat a  more extended commerce will demand  a , more extended currency. With  these points -is a basis lltes-e capitalists are of the opinion lhat silver must  sooner or later stand a better chance  than it has in the past.  Commonwealth Gold Mining  Company  J. Jl. Robinson, tin: general miuinger  of the Commonwealth CSoM Mining  Co.. left last niglit for Trout Lake to  look after tho interests of lho company. Tlie Commonwealth holds two  silver-lead properties on the north  fork of Lardeau creek, near the town  of Ferguson, and about $5,000 worth  of work was done on them last year,  while some development has been  carried along this season. Mr. Robinson is now seeing lo the acquisition by  the comp.ny of another property in  tho sumo neighborhood.��������� Rossland  Miner.  A Sure Sign  There is no surer sign of an early  general election than the appearance  in all the local grit newspapers in the  west of the chesnut articles from a  writer in the employ of tlie Grits at  Ottawa and labelled -'Our Ottawa  Leiter." Ynu can Hnd it published in  local papers in Ontario, Quebec, the  Maritime provinces, Manitoba, the  Northwest Territories, and yea even  in British Columbia. A strange fact  is noticeable, however, and thai is  "' Our Ottawa Letter" has not appeared in the Toronto Globe, the  Winnipeg Free Press, the Vancouver  World or Province, the recognized  leading organ of tho Grit parly in  Canada. "Our Ottawa Letter" appears io the Kootenay Ma.il, Nelson  Miner, Calgary Tribune, Golden Era  and the Smith Edmonton Plaindealer  and many other papers in the west,  that lhe names are not jusl to hand at  pi-Sent, and anyone who so desires  can see it regularly in the papers  above named.  Jack Knowlcs cune up from Fergu-  soii last night. Mr. Knowles, who  with Dave Ferguson owns the Towser  adjoining the Sunshine and Silver  Cup, reports progress on ,Ihe new  tunnel, which is now in about 30 feet  with tho lend in sight. Tlie Towser  is in such good company that big  strikes are to be expected cn the property, and that they will conic, no  one who knows that patt of the  country, doubts for .in instance.  The Axe Again .  Dr. Fnrrer, attending physician for  the hospital and gaol at Kamloops,  has been given a short thrift by the  Semlin government, and under circumstances that make liis summary  dismissal a very discreditable act.  Di-.-Furrer has beta ill'iii.tho. hospital  nt Victoria for the past six weeks, and  during his enforced absence his partner. Dr. Proctor, attended to his  work. The fact that'Dr. Furrer was  ill ,aii_d in Victoria was probably  known to the members of tlie government and at any rate to tho member  fur the district who sought his dismissal to make a billet for someone  else. The letter from the provincial  secretary's oilii'o ��������� containing the dis-  luisNi) was dated the 3rd .September,  the dismissal to lake effect on the iltli  September, jusl S days from the writing of the letter. The letter was sent  to Kamloops and returned from there  to Dr. Furrer in Lhe hospital here. A  more cold-blooded, inconsiderate and  unJ!ist-ac:t-is-not-among_Lhe__nnnals__of_  politics in this province, and il will receive the condemnation of all fair,  minded critics. Tlie question now is,  who'll ho the next?���������Victoria Colonist.  Who Made the West  The great crops of Manitoba and the  Northwest are the pride of Canada.  They speak of improving lomlitioiis  and of a greet future for our Western  Territories. What is more, they  tifsti.y to the p-itriotism and wisdom  of Sir .Inhii Macdonald, Sir Charles  Tupper and the other statesmen who.  in the face of violent opposition, acquired the West for Canada, and  opened it up for settlement by means  of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Tl e  opponents of progress are today citing  the great West and its advancement  as ��������� proofs of their own governing  capacity. But the greater success we  have in tho Territories the piouder is  the monument that is erected to the  labors of the patriots who gave us  that country, and among whom for  courage and for foresight, Sir Charles  Tupper stands in llie foremost rank.���������  Toronto Mail and Empire.  The Member for Yale-Cariboo  Tl. Bostock, M.P., is nt present  making a tour of Southern Yale and  the Kootenays, consulting his constituents as to their requirements.  This is as it should bo, and Mr. Bostock  is adopting the only course by wliich  ho can become familiar with the  wauls of his people. Concerning his  lour the Nelson Economist of Ihu Uth  iiiFt. - observes: "We observe with  some degree of unfeigned plei'sure  that Mr. ll.jwitt BiiHtock, M. P.. is  now on a scrimage throughout tlm  interim" of this province. Mr. Bos-  lock's visits are always something lo  be remembered. He is, pcrhiip., best  known as nn orator, although his  ability as a diplomat is entitled to  special recognition. In nccoidance  with its time-honored custom of giving  honor to whom honor is due, the  Economist lakes pleasure in pointing  out some of the peculiarities that have  made Mr. Bostock famous as a speaker.  II is said of this gentleman, as was  once remarked of a distinguished  member of the Irish bur,Unit he cannot  open liis lips or raise his hand without  immediately exciting or captivating  lhe attention of every man around  him. And, again, like the fore-inen-  tioned legal luminary, theie is a  peculiar mellowness and deep sweetness in his voice, the lower tones of  which might, almost without hazard  of exiiggeration, be compared lo the  most delicate nnles of a hand organ,  when touched wilh a fine but, solemn  hand. It is a voice full of manly  melody. Jlr. Bostock'- greatest oratorical elfort in the Dominion House  where he is such a shining light, was  on the creamery question, with an  incidental reference to hens. We  hope Jlr. Bostock will favor Nelson  with a visit."  The Profanity Habit  Anyone who has walked along  certain of the streets of Revelstoke  cannot help being struck by tho  applicability of tlie following paragraph from a Toronto paper:  " The swearing habit is objectionable  anywhere, and on the street especially  is an evil that the strong arm of the  law should be ever eager to suppress.  Why should not llie authorities begin  a fcr'nsade'agaiiist the streeo nuisance ?  If the magistrate were to imitate tlie  example of a New York'.justice, who  lined a young fellow ������50 for swearing  he would' establish a warning that  might bo needed. Perhaps the law  here does not permit,so heavy a  penalty, but the limit should be imposed in every possible case until  foul-niouthed men, women and youths  are compelled to cease their evil  practice."   '  The Master Speaks  There is evidence every day to show  that the Laurier- government is-in  mental dread of a prohibition victory  afc*' the polls. La Patrie, Hon. Mr.  Tarte's -l-gan'in Montreal, throws, off  the mask completely aud publishes an  article written no doubt iiy the minister of public works himself wliich  appeals to the farmers with the statement that, the distilleries heing  closed, a profitable market for barley,  corn and other grains would be lost to  the farmers of Canada by prohibition.  La Patrie also states that the farmers  should not lose sight of the fact that-  total prohibition would entail the  failure of thousands'of canning establishments and throw at least 300,000  employees on the street. Mr. Tarte's  temperance friends will read the conclusion of the iiiticle with pleasure:  "Farmers who wi������_i to"avo"id""tlie'  evils of drunkenness in their respective parishes have the means at their  disposal for protecting themselves l-.y  Ihe adoption of a municipal bylaw  prohibiting the opening of saloons and  the sale of liquors in the limits of their  jurisdiction."  Through Whirlpool Pass  John Brown, E. Looby, J. Kelly, J.  Lubbock and L. P. McDonald returned  last night from their prospecting trip  to Wood river, west of the Rockies.  Thev followed the Jasper House trail  to that pninl.-ind then diverged on the  old 11. B. Co. trail whicli ran from  Kdmonton to the Big Bend of tlie  Columbia, crossing the mountains in  the Whirlpool p.iss between Mounts  Brown and Hooker. They left Edmonton on July 18th, travelled to  within 25 miles of the Big Bend of  tlie Columbia river and returned to  f'.dmonton on September 1 Ith. They  had IS horses and brought all b.ick in  good condition', except one that was  drowned. Thil distance travelled was  nearly 1.000 miles, and the part from  Jasper House to Wood river had not  been travelled for many years. They  met McKvoy. of the geological survey,  near Jasper House. He will-be back  to Edmonton in a couple of weeks.  The rivers were high oil the way out.  They saw very little game. Killed  one grizzly bear and some porcupines.  Saw no goats, sheep or deer, although  they saw deer tracks. Prospectors  from Donald had come into the region  which was their objective point. A  large party had wintered there last  winter nnd were coming into winter  again. Swift, who livps near the  Henry House, well within the mountains, had a garden in which were  potatoes, peas, rut.ibairas: cabbages  and a little wheat. The potatoes weie  gootl and the tops not frozen on Aug.  20th. Snow fell io the mountains and  frost occurred in the low lands on the  night of September l������t. The pai ty all  look well although they had a hard  trip.���������Edmonton Bulletin.  BRITISH COLUMBIA WHEAT  Beautiful Sample of  Wheat   Grown   in  Okanagan Valley   on Exhibition   at  the Grain Exchange  A magnificent sample of red Fyfe  wheat giown at Armstrong in lhe  Okanagan valley. British Columbia  is on exhibition at the grain exchange  s lys the Winnipeg Telegram. All  who have seen the sample say it ia  very fine. It resembles very much a  sample of red Fyfe wheat received  from the Peace River two or three  years ago. The following letter from  the secretary of the Okanagan 'flour  mills accompanied the letter: - "We  send you today a sample of Manitoba,  wheat 1 hard grown from seed procured lost spring. The wheat has'  been put through one elevator separator, only weighs 65 pounds ' to tho  bushel and yields   45   bushels   to the  icre. This is tlie first lot we have  received. biiD it is 100 per cent,  better  han the seed we have sown from.

One  wonders why-the poet, who is, above  a'.l things, the,interpreter of nature's  sentiments,- should call the autumn  fields happy. It Is the last thing in  the world that they look, especially  where the frost has laid its blighting  hand. In fact, one has 11 kiml of  feeliug lhat nature must be just as  unhappy in her worn-out���������or, rather,  fast wearing out���������garb as any of us  ���������would he in shabby discolored clothes,  etpeclally If they were the remnants  of thoso which had seen a day o������  great glory, und been once possessed  o- what one might call a green  felicity. Untidiness has, in spring  time and youth, a wild charm all its  own. but it suits the age of decay  neither in nature or humanity. Never  mind."

August 23.���������It is no slislit  compliment to Lord Charles Beres-  ford's ability and energy, that the  foremost commercial body in tlie  Kingdom lias selected him for tlie  discharge it duty uttterly foreign to  tlie calling in which he has hither-  flistin'guished himself. But it is  a truism to say that a capable man  will do well whatever he undertakes,  and in entrusting the important, work  referred to, to Lord Charles Bcres-  ford, the associated chambers of commerce of Great Britain nave done  credit to their own discretion as well  as to tho admiral's ability. The associated chambers represent all tne  chambers of commerce in the United  Kingdom. It is therefore the most important commercial body in the land,  and the mission now entrusted to Lord  Charles is probably the most impouan  it has ever deputed to tlie care of any  individual. His instructions are of  a very wide and comprehensive character. He is to enquire especially,  "as to what extent the Chinese government, appears to bo in a position  to gunr.-intce tlie safe employ ment of  Uritish capital .now in llie interior  of tlie country, as well as in the  immediate future." It is almost an  enquiry into the present and prospective stability of the Chinese government itself.  Attention has been drawn to a fact  wbicn mis been published in the now  report on Canadian Agriculture.  Professor Robertson quotes a letter  written by a Liverpool merchant 10  a Montreal exporter in which he says  that the s.s. Parisian arrived on a  particular date with SOO boxes of  ���������lined" cheese, whicli wo know as  margarine cheese in tliis country;  these boxes having neither brand nor  mark to denote their character. The  names of the shipper and the Liverpool firm are given. They were undoubtedly, as the writer says, soul  from Chicago via Monrcal Cor the  purpose of evading seizure at either  of the ports of the U. S. On another  day the attention of the Canadian  commissioner was called to a suspicious lot of 177 boxes of cheese which  had been shipped from Chicago, and  winch were to be sent to Glasgow.  They were not branded, but the_.bo_.es  were marked with the letters "U.S.A."  and the ends. "Produce of the U. S. A."  No definite chemical test was made,  but in the opinion of the comm'sslon-  or they were also margarine chesse.  Those who are interested in the detection of margarine will do well to  lieni" these facts in mind and it  would lie as well that suspicious  cheese should be occasionally testsd.  as well as suspicious butter; for  large quantities are manufactured in  the States, whereas in Canada no such  article is allowed to be manufactured  at all whether margarine, or margarine ..butter.   .    ...   . ... _, .  Notwithstanding the decisive victory of General Kitchener In the Soudan there .Is ln England Increasing  dissatisfaction with Lord Salisbury  (whose war feeling, if he has any. is  hold In leash by the Queen) for not  taking firmer ground against the ag-  sresRions of Russia in the East. Even  the usually mild Liberals join with  the Jingoes in objecting to the weakness of the .Tory diplomacy and seem  to relish Chamberlain's more defiant  attitude. Tbat the party is under a  cloud is duo not so much to lack of  an acceptable and recognized leader  as to the Increasing drift, on tho part  ol the nation at large, towards imperialism. - This is Bhown in the abandonment of Irish home rule, and in  the favor with -which Liberals look  oa tho permanent occupation of  Egypt and the active prosecution of  the war against tho Khalifa. It also  flnda expression In the regard paid to  the idea of an Anglo-American alliance  and the world domiaau.c of the two  HOOLEY REVELATION'S  Mr. Justice White gave judgment on  Wednesday iu th������ application, to commit for contempt of court Earl di In.  Warr, Mr.Broadly, and Mr. Bradshaw.  who had been reported by t..c registrar as having attempted to bribe  Mr. Hooley to alter his evidence in  their favor. Briefly the result ij that  Lord tie la Warr escapes by the skin  oC liis teetli and Mr. Broadly by  something less. The judge remarked,  concerning Mr. Hooley. that he was  "not a mere liar, ecatiermg accusations which he knew to bo without  foundation," but that he was as a  witness, "rash, reckless and inaccurate. Sometimes he seems to be under  mere illusions." and in a word, Mr.  Justice Wiight determined to <li..re-  g.iril bis e.vid-nce ahogetner.

The  last pair were boys, and arrived about  two weplis ago. The 11 children aro  all living. .Mrs. Harris is in her ."3rd  year."  LONDON  In a volume of statistics and (igure-i  Just   issued   by   the    London     county  council   there   are   some   particulars  about  London  which  are  to  say  the  least  stupendous  and  Amazing.    One  learns  that  the  population    was     in  the       month       of        March.        1830,  l.'H3,018. Nothing Illustrates  the wonderful character of the London po],ulaiion better than tho calculation marie by an authority that  in London there, are moro Scotchmen  than in Aberdeen; more Irishmen  than lu Belfast; more Welshmen  than lu Cardiff; more Jews than  in Palestine; and more Roman Catholics than in Home.   A child, on b.ing  1  informed of the size of London, remarked, "what a lot of cooking thero  must be," and certainly the statistics  arc startling. There are fifty million  gallons of ale, eight million gallons  of wine consumed in a year. But  the food supply is on the same scale  ���������2,000.0110 quarters of wheat; SuO.OOO  oxen; 1,000,000 sheep, pigs and  calves; 9,000,000 head of game and  poultry; iind 150.000 tons of fish���������  a list thai would have given huge  satisfaction   to  Smicho  Pan'/.a.  Some particulars about the public places of London are interesting  and suggestive. Theie are about loOO  ihcaircs, music halls, and concerl  rooms. There are over S.000 public  houses, and 2000 coffee houses. The  school board spends about X3.000.000  on the 500 schools under its care, and  educates 000,000 children for that  amount. There are 1G00 churches aad  chapels���������which means that if all its  people were suddenly smitten with  the desire to go to divine service, it  would be impossible for nine out of  every ten to gratify the wish. This  is perhaps the most significant fact  in all its characteristics. Within a  12 mile radius of Charing Cross there  are -100 railway stations, there are  SOO miles of railway in Loudon, there  are 2000 omnibuses, tliere arc 1100  tram cars, and 25,000 cabs or one sort  or other.  Thero has been a remarkable development, of the Canadian export  trade which is scarcely likely to be  maintained at tlie samo rate. The  institution of the new Canadian customs scheme, by which British.goods  are admitted at 25' per cent less duty  than those from other countries, is  responsible for the fact that last week  ovor .CS7.000 worth of woollens were  exported from Liverpool to the Dominion. The facts will probably come  to the ears of continental firms, and  arc not likely to impart pleasurable  feelings, especially in Germany. It  should now become tho duty of those  concerned to bo on the look out for  any attempts at introducing foreign  goods into Canada by surreptious  methods, tlio nature of whicli it is  not necessary to indicate.  WOMEN AND AGR1 Lo.-^_>.E  The Counless of Warwick is about  10 make an interesting experiment,  and. one which is likely it it meets  with success, to havo an appreciable  effect upon agriculture in England.  Lady Warwick's idea is that it would  bo useful to form setlleiueius of women in-different parts of the country  for ihe cultivation of the land, and  thus enable them to add to their income by the sale of fruit, flowers,  vegetables, poultry, eggs, honey, or  tho produce of their gardens and poultry runs. There is little doubt that  a moderate means of livelihood can  bo obtained in lhis way. but in the  present state of keen competition  success falls chiefly, if not entirely,  to the "trained capacity" and o-gani."-  0(1   worker.  These women, therefore, who propose to embark on such nu enterprise  .must lirst qualify themselves for tho  work. The hostel which Lady Warwick hopes to open in Oclobar in connexion wilh the Reading college, will  be an institution where" such qualifications may be obtained, lt will be  founded for the definite purpose of  enabling women over the age of IG  10 obtain a thorough training (theoretical and practical) in tho lighter  branches of agriculture, viz: Flower  and fruic farming, anti packing for  market, especially bush fruit, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.. bee and poultry rearing, dairy work. etc. The  council of Reading college have consented to provide the necessary  courses of instruction, aud to recognize tne Countess of Warwick's hostel, as a place of residence for women students. The full course of instruction will extend over two years,  aim the fees for board and instruction  will not exceed   C..0 a year.  AUSTRALIAN* ORANGES ~  Juki as the Tasmania apples reaches  this country when the home grown  in ores'"are"- exhaustedy- the���������Australian"  orange is now endeavoring io obtain  a footing here by arriving sonic-  months before the advent of the European varieties.

From a national  point of view, it Is clearly advantageous in the faco of jealous continental  rivalry, that the immense colonial  dependencies .should   be  brought  into  use of the latest developments in now TO  tinnslt. Canadian butler now disputes the market with Danish, and  thero is no reason why Canadian bacon, cheese and fruit should not be  equally successful. In 1885 only three  per cent of our food stuffs came from  Canada. In 1S~7 we took eight per  cent. By giving English goods tho  benefit or preferential treatment In  duties, Canada has made a bold and  generous bid for a commercial alliance.  SOUTH  WALES STRIKE  Sad reports come from the South  Wales district. In consequence or the  long continued strike, when for three  months, 100,000 men have ceased  working. From Newport, nil important shipping port, sad report of the  destitution existing in consequence  come, SO per cent of the shipping  business of lhe port has vanlsed, trade  is practically at a stand still, credit  has stopped, and the local funds are  drying up lhrough the Inability of  the townspeople lo keep up subscriptions. Sir Edward Fry, for many  years a judge of the highest ability  and distinction, was' appointed hy the  President of the Board of Trade, in  the exercise of his statutory powers,  as eoncilliator. He had several interviews with tlie leaders ot the men  who expressed their desire to cooperate willi him in making terms of  peace. The masters would have nothing to do with him. Tliey would  not acknowledge him or the minister  who selected him. or tho government  to'which that minister belongs, or  the act of parliament which gave Sir  Edward his position. Tliis childish  arrogance, this obstinate refusal, not  only to take advice, but to listen to  ii. must turn public opinion against  tlie' masters.  THE  POPE  The recent illness of tho Pope has  set  a   good   many     people     talking  about_^the  succession     to   the    papal  chair.    The probability of the election  of  Cardinal   Jernian   Maria  Gotti,   of  the Carmelite order, whose name has  been frequently mentioned on the continent does nol seem great, not, however, on acounl of his humble birth���������  he    is tlie    son    of a Genoese    dock  laborer���������for   this   consideration   may  not   be   suposcd   to   weigh     with   the  conclave.     Many  popes   have  sprung  froin> ranks   far   removed   from   the  purple".      Nicholas     Brakspear,   afterwards   Adrian   IV,   tlie  only   Englishman who ever became pope, was onee  so poor as to be compelled to beg his  bread.      But Cardinal Gotti  does not  appear to bo sufficiently popular, notwithstanding  liis  brilliant  diplomatic  services in Brazil, to warant the assumption" that  he will   bo  elected  to  uccoed Loo XIII.  THE GLADSTONE DUBLIN STATUE  The   Dublin  corporation  having refused   to  assist  in  any  way    in  tlie  election of a statue"to Mr. Gladstone,  Sir Charles Gavan  Duffy, who in his  day,   worked   and   suffered   more   for  the cause of Ireland than all the Par-  nellites   together,   writes     from    San  Dalma���������/;o,   10   express   his     contempt  for  '"the  disgraceful   and    disgusting  conduct" of the Dublin corporation in  refusing to do so.    Tho'action ot the  Parnellite   corporation   has   been   admitted   by  English  home  rulers to  bo  hard   to   endure,   but  Sir  Charles  exclaims:     "How much  harder is it for  Irish Nationalists to see the cause they  lovo. disgraced  so far as  the misconduct of tl'.e handful of Phillistines can  disgrace il before the civilized world!"  Tho ungrateful Parnellite parly is reminded   by   the   veteran   Nationalist  that even after the amplest allowances  aro   made   for   the     services     of   Mr.  Parnell  and  the   Irish  party,  the  fact  remains   if   there   had     been   no   Mr.  Gladstone the Irish cliurcli would still  be  unruformed.     The  Irish  franchise  would  still   be  a  mockery  of  popular  representation,   tho   protection   of   tho  ballot   vculd   not  exist,   and   a   homo  rulo  bill  would   not  have  passed  the  House of Commons.

AMERICAN COMPETITION IN CAST  IRON0  An interesting example of the competition home industries have to go  against is furnished this week by'the  experience of the Glasgow corporation,  who some time ago invited tenders for  tl.o supply of 1,000 tons-ot cast iron  pipes.'- The two lowest tenders came  from tho United States, but ns the  castings were wanted in nine foot  lengths, and thoso specified hy the  Americans were 12 feet. long, revised  r:_ti_iates were askol for, and tho amounts of tho several quotations made  known. - The amended offers show,  that an American firm again asks less  than any of the others; and as tliero  aro ovr 200 iron foundries in Glasgow, and most of thorn deal in pipes,  the committee In charge decided to  have the matter over for future consideration.  THE  WEATHER  AND  CROPS  Sinco the beglnlng of last week up  to .Monday night, we havo been treated to a spell of brilliant weather, tho  thermometer fluctuated from 70 to 80  degrees in the shade, and tho moist  state ;,t the atmosphere rendered the  heat oppressive In the extreme. Under these conditions harvest has  been rapidly proceeding. Some of tho  crops are a good deal battered, but on  the whole they have not been so sovei fly handled as anticipated, with  a further spell of floe weather, farmers will be able to say, ho far as  Britain is concerned, an admirable  harvest has been reaped. The crops  are .0 heavy in certain districts that  tlio Amorican mar-iifnei. havo been  found foo light for thf* work, and  many  nave  broken  down.

That perpetual companionship from  whicli there is no escaping, that confinement in all our moments of ill  humor and listlcssness with persons  who want us to look amused, is very  trying. It Is a severe ordeal for  friendship io pass through. If two  friends arc going over to the Paris  exposition, it is better that they take  sejparate trains and separate boats  otherwise by the timo they have  struck tho land of the parle-vous-  ding-dongs they will be utterly sick  of each other's society. The strangest part of it is that' good persons  weary of each other quicker Mum  do bad persons. No wonder. Virtue  would make a nice companion to"take  over to lhc Paris expositioti, we don't  think.. The kind of companions we  would like would be two or threo  gay spirits, possessed of a few agreeable vices, capable of loud laughter,  fond of a brimming bumper and full  of good temper. Too many virtues  contradict one another, while vices,  when not too serious assimilate. If  this is not so tell us why it is that  preachers in a town never frater-  ernize together. We presume it is  because each  is  bored  by the virtues  of the other.  .   *  *  If one is especially desirous of retaining the good opinion and regard  of another, let him not foist his company on the other too much". Let him  make himself reasonably scarce.  'Never allow the man whose goo'd  opinion you desire lo keep to get  to know you as you really aro. Few  of us" will bear intimacy. Our limitations of education and mind resources are too pronounced to stand  a daily strain, and the miserable littlo  foibles that a man is conscious of  himself possesing. irritate him when  detected in another. Whatever else  you may .do, never make yourself  cheap,   even   with   your   besl   friend.  Unless you wish to lose him.  ��������� *  ���������  The same principle is to bo applied in the courting of a girl.. Make  your mash first. Then quit her for a  time. Seeing little of you just as  sho has got to-liko you "Oh so much,"  your noble and,manly attributes will  assume mammoth proportions in her  imagination, and the other chaps,  who arc calling on. her every evening she will regard as so many dubs.  Wc used to have the most horrible  kind of luck with our girls until we  caught  onto .this  wrinkle.  * *  ���������  Now that so many newspapers nre  cropping up- between Calgary and"'  Edmonton we havo decided to, invite  them all to a peace conference to be  .held at Wetaskiwin.

Fiddes pleaded guilty and was fined  Si5 and costs.- R.- li. Bennett appeared   for the prosecution.

He told him (Nott)  that he would try unil sell it for him.  not knowing at the time that it was  against the law. Fiddes sold the  ticket for $13 to a local man, who only  got as far as Moose Jaw when he was  arrested.  "What I -can't understand,'-' said-  Mr. Fiddes, "is that I have no remedy  against Nott. who I have been informed is a C. P. R. spotter. I do not  blame the C. P.

We  are intimately acquainted with both  sides of mis question and can recognize the good points of either sides  of the argument, but we can' sew  no reason for taking up the space of  this great moral weekly in discussing  impracticable politics.  *  ������   .  The whole scheme is about as practicable as the char's ischemc for a  general disarmament. "A fine subject for pulpit and platform eloquence, a species of Exeter hall poli;  tics that is quietly smiled over by the  practical politicians.

Tho sultan, it is said,  hnd a lit when he heard about, il.  Propositions for universal sobriety  are theoretically sound 'and practically impossible. They sound beautiful,' however, when propounded,  from a pulpit, of a calm summer  evening, when you aro sitting alongside your very best girl and the organ  has been pealing forth, "Oh What  Shall the Harvpst Bn," the setting sun  casting mysterious lights on the red  hair of the organist, and no collection. Tlif preacher's exordium closes  his temperance work for that week,  and for the next six days, while the  boys are whooping tilings up, i|t;iie  temperance advocate is nowhere to  be seen. Ho has spoken his little piece  Joseph   Seagram.  * .   .  While admitting that a boy oflG is  a mental and physical fool compare d  with a girl of that age, we must say  that there are a great number of attractive girls who do not ' seem to  realize-their powers. OC courso somo  do, anil then there is llie devil to pay,  but the majority of them very seldom  put themselves very much out lo  please the sterner sex, unless- perchance in the matter of dress. In a  country like" this where tliere are so  many amiable, nice lcoking.and real y  good girls, it seems a pily ono cannot get a word out cf theni. It is  very disconcerting to be introduced  lo an apparently charming young lady  and find absolutely no conversation  in her. A girl whose ideas flag to  the extent of imposing absolute  'silence should take a trip over to Ireland kiss the Blarney slonc and  wake to more liveliness, as the" princess in the fairy tale woke up through  a kiss.  * *  *  Wo have a great curiosity to s:e  what it feels like to write a check.

The prize list of tho First Annual  Fall Fair of tho Wetaskiwin Agricultural society, to be held at Wetaskiwin  on the _lh of October, is perhaps iho  most ridiculous thing in its line we  have ever seen. There aro 142 live  and dead objects lo hi exhibited.with  prizes ranging from $2 down to 25c.  Nothing is forgotten. For example  there is a two dollar prize for the  finest oil painting, and we can well  imagine tlio numerous artlsls of this  vicinity painting away at Madonna's  and Holy Grails to try aud win ilii-s  Iwo spot. The second prize is one  dollar. For the llnesf paint Ing on  fabric the llrst prize is one dollar,  second seventy-live cents. This is  where tlie Gobelins tapestry feature  will come In.
