Between nine and ten members of the  fraternities, brilliant with sash and  badge, began to congregate outside  the Oddfellows' Hall and at 10 o'clock.  Marshall Lee ranged the procession in  orded, and headed by the City Band  the parade wended its way up Second  street to Mackenzie avenue, down the  avenue to the railway crossing, then  back to First street and along First  street, Government road and Third  street to Douglas street and Front  street and back along the same- route  to the hall. Tliere were 86 members  of the various fraternities marching  in the parade, including tho Knights  of Pythias headed by tlieir commander  Jas. Gill, the Machinists.t.he Foresters,  headed by Chief Ranger Thos. Bain,  the Trainmen, the rear being brought  up by the Oddfellows of the Selkirk  and Revelstoke lodges.  On return to the hull the dedication  service of the handsome new lodge  room commenced. Speeches were  made by the representatives of the  various lodges present and by Aid.  Crage for the corporation. The impressive ceremonies of the dedication  of the lodge room according to the  Oddfellows' ritual, were then performed,' J."A. Stone presiding iii the  absence of the representative of the  Grand Lodge.  By the hour fixed to start the spoits  the fair promise of the morning had  proved fallacious and the monotonous  drip of the'rain began again and  lasted all the afternoon. It was in  consequence impossible to pull off the  entire programme, but the following  events were curried out:  Boys under , 10, hundred yards. E.  Pettipieci: 1st.

The expected- football match between a Lardeau team aiid the Revelstoke club failed to materialize, lint a  pick up game was played hetween  two teams captained by Roy and  Wentworth Smythe respectively mid  a very good game was played in spite  of the rain and the soaking ground.

This petition was accepted almost'  without discussion as settling the question and the following motion was  put and carried. Aid. Graham being  the only dissent ient.  Moved by Aid. McKechnie, seconded  Aid. Brown, that whereas a petition  has been ptes.inted protesting against  the proposed method of building the  proposed sidewalk that the committee  on Public Works and Property be instructed to'procced at once to build  the proposed sidewalk out of the  moneys raised bv debenture for the  purpose of public improvements.  After the motion was (carried Aid.  Graham remarked with .eome vehemence that now every sidewalk in  town would have to be built out ol  lhe general taxation, but no one accepted the challenge to debate and  after authorizing the mayor to make  a grant of $25 to defray the expense  of hiring the city band on Labor Day  and passing the monthly wage list,  the council adjourned.  FERGUSON, IS IT NOT!  ARMSTRONG  IS  GOING AHEAD  The Ranchers in the   Okanagan Valley  Are Prospering.  Armstrong.  B.C.. Aug. 31.���������Many  have heard of a place called Armstrong,  hut  to   more  properly   judge  of   the  significance of  tho place  one. hns to  visit here and see for themselves.     To  hegin   with,   it,   is   the  centre of  the  Okanagan  valley.     The ranches here  are  a  perfect  garden, with  plenty of  fruit and and abundance of vegetables  of all kinds.  -The. farmers all seem to  be blest with a liberal   share of  prosperity.     All  have fine   turnouts and  good buildings.    We have a No. I saw  mill and a first class flour mill ; a   furniture -ind hardware store,   two  good  general   merchandise   establishments,  a jewelery store, a  new  drug store, a  new   barbel   shop, with   a first   class  tonsorial aitist at the chair ; a  hlack-  smi'th and wagon shop, a good saddlery  store,  with the good   natured   Chas,  Adison in charge, who is  turning out  some very fine work ; a good  restaurant and bakery, two' good 'meat markets, three churches,  viz.: Presbyterian, Methodist and Church of England-  We  are. to have a  brass  band and a  mandolin club, under the leadership of  the druggist, * We have one first class  hotel, under  the management of the  genial Hugh Keyes, who will and does  everything  to  make  his  guests comfortable-and  enjoy  themselves while  under his roof.  AVe had a grand old game of foot  ballon Saturday evening between the  Armstrong juniors and the pitkups,  wliich resulted in favor of the former  the losers were to pay for a supper,  which they did like little'men.  Owing to the continued wet weather  considerable damage has been done to  tbe wheat crop, hut'the crops being so  much heavier than last year the damage will not be noticed very much.  If the weather clears io will take but  a short time to take care of the wheat,  owing to the fact that three large new  steam threshing outfits have recently  been added tii the list.  The Kickapoo entertainment here  was liberally attended.  The new residence being built hy  Mrs. Schubert is nearly finished. W.  II. Ireland has die contract.

The   railway  will     reach  Ferguson about next July or August..  The first  section  of  17   miles  will  be.  completed within 60   days,   an   extra  five hundred men having been put on  to   rush   the   work   through.     Good,  progress is being made  with  the sur-;  veying   of   the   second  section  of 13  miles, which will reach tho foot of the.  lake.   The road  then   strikes up the.  north Shore  of  the   lake   to   a   point,  about H miles from Ferguson where it.  leaves the lake and makes its way into,  the town.   This mile and a half from ,  the lake to Ferguson will be built first,  as soon   as   the  foot of  the   lake ia  reached,   connection   being made by,  the   steamer  Rosa,   now   plying    nn.

Capital and Labor.  Conciliation and arbitration as means  of   settling disputes   between  capital  and labor in Great Bi itiiin have proved  a great success, and the growth of the  boards may be reckoned as one of  the  most remarkable features of industrial  life at the end of the 10th century.

GSOWLERS  Mr. Augustui; Hare hns known a  great many distinguished men and  women, and it is curious to see, in  an interview wliicli a recent, contributor to the London Daily News recently had with the well known writer and artist, how some o������ the great  men of the past used to growl. Carlyle, of course, was the most notorious; lennyson only a little better.  The exquisite poem, Crossing the Bar  grew  out   of  Tennyson's growl.  He had been very ill, and one day  when ne was convalescent, was sitting growling. Suddenly his nurse  said to him:  "You ought to.be ashamed of yourself, Mr'.T'ennyson. You ought to lie  expressing your gratitude for yonr  recovery from a bud illness by giving  us something, by giving it to Uie  world."  Tennyson, without replying, went  out and straightway wrote Crossing  the Bar, and brought it to the nurse  as a peace offering.  Carlyle's savage side was shown in  something Tennyson told air. Have.  Browning one day left a copy of his  new pcems at Carlyle's house and  Carlyle said to Tennyson:  >. nat did that fellow mean by leaving that cavt load of stones at my  door.-'  Carlyle and Tennyson weve nice  enough if one got round to the other  side of them, but why should they  have taken such pains to be unpleasant? Both were lacking in tact, and  after all, tact is the great thing to  carry one through life. Some one  asked Archtishop Langley of England once what tact was.  "..'ell," snid the archbishop, "it is  difficult to spy what it is. Here, however, is an instance of what it is not:  Only this morning a clergyman of -iiy  diocese wrote to me, 'In consideration  of your graces many infirmities and  failing powers." That was not tactful."  Gambler Yvcn all the Money With the  Odds Against Him  '���������Times ain't what they used to be  in this town," mused the old tini-r,  as he shoved bis hands far down into  liis trousers pockets and felt about fov  the 'case" coin which he knew was  there,  says me Memphis Scimitar.

FROM THE  FAR  NORTH  FROM COUNTRY TO CITY  The migrafion of young men fvom  the farming districts to the towns and  cities has reached such proportions in  r.r������it. Britain that not long ago a  writer seriously contemplated the possibility that England would some day-  consist of a number of immense cuies  suvrounded ,->- districts of market  gardens, while the rest of the island  would be as wild and uncultivated as  the wastes of Central Africa.  Without accepting the prediction  quite literally, it is still nevertheless  true that tlie movement in question is  going on in this country and the  United States as it is in England.  The young men of today ave most  cf them reluctant to adopt any pursuit that involves manual labor. Their  impulse is to push into the already  overcrowded sedentary employments  in the cities. Thousands of them do  not realize their anticipations, nnd  live meagre, discontented, unpromising lives. It is a mistaken choice.  The hope is that the multitude of  these failures will ultimately living  aobut the readjurtment.of the popular  conception of country and city business life.  Meanwhile education must be ex-  a__.".pnded--_an(L_snecialized... .It. is -im-.  perative that educational methods  should adjust themselves to the needs  of the times. Already there is a  movement to teach more agriculture  in country schools. If the movement is successful, a large number of  the boy.-* of the next generation will  be taught that intelligent farming is  one of the best reliable puvsuits to  ���������~~*hic_ thought and enterprise and  industry ran be given. The tendency  of education as we have it in the  Canadiau West is .to produce too  many lawyers, doctors, clerks  school teachers.  Clagary Herald.  Among the passengers who arrived  by tlie north train on yesterday evening were two Canadian young ladies,  Miss Anna Marsh and Miss Lily  Veitch, who have beeu engaged as  missionavics for four and two yoais  respectively, at St. Peter's mission, on  the Great Slave lake, in the Mackonv.'.'  river country, under Bishop Reeve, of  the Church of England Missionaiy  society.  The Rev. Thomas J. Marsh, brother  of Miss Marsh, who spent severa.  years in that country, is head of th"  Indian school and is doing good work  there.  These ladies left tlieir homo i*- Lhe  far north on the 2!)tli day ,of.Juno,  starting across the lake in'a small  steamer which the Bishop purchased  fvom a parly of Detroit miner*, to  Fovt Smith.

But when  1 first set foot���������it was a tenderfoot,  let me say���������in Hugo, Colo., 1 at once  conceived a great respect fov a man  named Higgins. Higgins was an undertaker. He was tho only undertaker within a hundred miles, and he  was getting rich. Neve a, day  passed but my friend Higgins had a  funeral on hand. He was tne most  cheerful undertaker, perhaps, that ever  flourished.  "I remember well tho day that I bid  Higgins good-by. He was as light  spirited as a grasshopper, and a thousand times expressed his regret that  1 was going into the interior until I  felt clammy lest he might bo gri .veil  nt the thought that some else might  hnvo the profitable job of burying  me.  "When I noxt saw Biggins it was  after a two years' experience of chas-  i" wild steers. I was glad to sec  him he was such a jolly old undertaker.  Hello, Higgins!' I said cheerfully,  when I walked into his establishment.  "How aro you, old man9'  "Hicgins shook his head mournfully,  .mil then I stopped short in amazement, for T saw that he was nailing  down boxes and packing up bis slock.  You aren't going to move, aro  you?' T asked in surprise, but ho only  jammed a role of crape into a dry  goods box and went on with his work.  " See hove Higgins." I cried 'what's  thn trouble?     Toll nie about, it.'  "Tlie old man turned on mc wvaih-  full.v.  " 'Ain't   I   boon   one  o'   Hugo's   ben',  citizens?' he _������ked  stonily.  'You have Higgins.'

" 'Well,   that's  all.      Now   how   do  you think this pesky town has treated  its foremost citizen?'  "'Toll me, Higgins.      You hnve my  sympathy.'  " 'Well.   I   was      making   a   decent  livin'.       I   let  out  contracts   fov   the  only brick building in tlio town.'  " 'Yes.'  " 'I was going to call it tho Higgins  block.     1 was s'oing to let tlie volunteer   fire   department  havo  rooms   in  my block for nothin'.      I proposed to  have a temnerance union in the town.  I hoped to have a free library.      You  know I'm a progressive citizen, don't  you ?'  " 'You aro, Higgins.'  " 'Well, what do you think this town  has done to me '  " 'Surely nothing bad, Higgins?'  "'Nothing bad!' he screamed.      'Do  vou know what they've done   They've  lynched Bill Smith, and if ever thevc  was a cowardly blow aimed at a foremost citizen, it was that.'  " 'But you can bury him, Higgins?'  "'Bury him!'  he screamed.      'Bury  Bill   Smith!      Why.  man.  Bill   Smith  was makin' a fortune   for     me.     He  killed liis man as regular as thc sun  went down; and I buried every one of  'om.   ' He was worth $25 a day to mo,  lie was.      So T'm  goin' to leave 'om.  This town don't offer no inducements  to  an  honest  man like  me.      Think  what I've done for 'em.     1 was goin'  to erect a monument to our departed  brothers.  And now  thoro won't be  a  doath   in  this  town once      a month.  Poor Bill!' and Higgins seized a winding sheet and tried to stifle his sobs."  THE WORLD TODAY IS BETTER  THAN IT EVER WAS BEFORE  By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.  Oh, tho earth is full of sinning  And of trouble and of woe,  But the devil makes an  inning  Every time you say it's so;  And the way to set him scowling,  And to put him back a pace,  Is to stop this stupid growling,  And to look things in the face.  If you glance at history's pages,  In all  lands and eras known,  You will find the vanished ages  Far more wicked than our own,  As you scan eacli word and letter,  You will realize it more,  That the world today is better  Than  it ever was before.  Tliere is much that needs amending  In thc present time, no doubt,  Thoro is right, that needs defending,  Thoro is wrong needs crushing out;  And wo hoar tho groans and curses  Of the poor who starve and die,  While the men with swollen purses  In the place of hearts, go by.  But in spite of all  the (rouble  That obscures flic sun today.  Just vememlior it was double"  In the ages passed away..  And these wrongs shall all lie righted.  Good shall dominate the land.  Fov the davkiioss now is lighted  Hy the torch  in Science's hand.  I  Forth from little motes in chaos  We have conic to what wo are.  And no evil force can stay us,  Wc shall mount from star to star;  Wo shall break away each fetter  That  has  bound   us  heretofore.  And tho world today  is better  Than  it ever  was before.
