The   conceit,   winding  up   with    the  laughable fai'ci* "Turn Tl im Ont" was  held   in  Bourne's  hull, in  aid   of St.  Mark's   church   nnd   was an   unmitigated success throughout. The audience  was good, the spacious hall, remodelled  hy Air. Bourne specially for'; the  occasion, was most. comfortahlc^iuicl  the stage fittings were perfect! and  most artistically arranged, and wjould  lie a. credit to many a larger city  theatrical building.  The chair was very ably occupied liy  liev. Mr. Mount. Mrs. Muirhead gave  a pianoforte solo in magnificent style.  Messrs. Jordan and Simmons kept the  audience in a. continuous state of mirth  with comic songs, bringing forth  repeated encores. Mrs. J. _D. Bourne  rendered a very sweet, song and her  well trained voice was in exce"len,t  shape. Mr. J. T. Martin's rendering  of "Sweetest Story Ever Told" ! was  much admired and "Run for the Doctor" pioduced peal*) of laughter. .The  Nakusp Glee Club, led by, Mi*. J. T.  Mai tin, gave four selections und- the"  faultless manner in. which they rendered them showed that the club; was  composed of splendid talent .{'and  excellent voices. The different, parts,  were as follows : Bass, Messrs. L. E.  Simmons nnd V. Dunn ; tenor, MessrsC  J. T. Martin und L. .T. Edwards ; .alto,  Mesdiimes L. J. Edwards and' Fl.

Though amateurs, lheir aciing was  equal and superior to many so called  professionals and theie is a desire  lhat the performance should" be repeated, so enthused were- the public.  The evening's amusement wound_"'"iip  with a delightful dance and the^per-  formers adjourned to supper at the  Hotel Nakusp, wheie a" dainty, well  earned and appreciated meal was  served. ' ".

The club starts.out with a promising outlook for the season, over  forty names being already on the  membership roll."  A discussion arose about suitable  recreation^ grounds, as the grounds  across tbe track, were too far away  to play on in tbe evenings. A  committee was appointed to interview tbe scbool trustees, in .regard  to using tbe school grounds for  evening practice.. "  -The meeting then adjourned with'  a vote of thanks to Mr. Lauder for  the use of the room.

A  Popular and  Useful   Institution.  In the bright'and progressive town  of Medicine Hat, there has sprung up  a new institution in . connection with  St.' Barnabas Episcopal church, which  bids fair to become a very popular  one, it being what is termed a church  club, for the men of tho parish. It  was established in February last and  since that time has become a very  popular resort, where the young men  gather of an evening, and spend their  time iu reading,"* playing - games, etc,  The club room is on the^first floor of  the Indian school and is very . com**  fortably furnislied; with-.vtables, i, easy  chairs, lounges, writing desks, etc.'-'In  one end.of the room stands a long  table, on "-which are found, nicely arranged all the leading daily and  j weekly papers, magazines,   etc.,   also  a bookcase plentifully supplied with  interesting books. Social evenings  are also an occasional pleasing feature  of the club. On such evenings the  young ladies of the congregation provide for those present a very substantial luncheon. The club is free  to any member or adherent of the  English church. It might be added  in this connection that the thanks of  the men of the congregation are due  to Miss B. Walton and Miss A. Ireland, for it was through their] untiring efforts that the Church club scheme  is now a "reality and one which is  worthy of success.  THROUGH'THE  CYCLONE  C.P.R. Engineer's Trip Through  The Storm in The Rosser  District.  During a recent cyclone, which  occured in the Rosser district about 20  miles west of Winnipeg, engineer  Rnil'erty of the C. P. R. brought a  freight through the storm from Brandon to Winnipeg. His train was at  the station at Rosser when the storm  broke. Describing his experiences to  the Free Press he said:  "We had only stopped a minute  when the racket*hegan. There was  an ominous roar and I called to the  fireman to hurry up and out we pulled  foe Winnipeg just as the wind struck  the scattered buildings near the  station.

A"*New Tork despatch announces   it  were turned over on their   backs   and   pending whiskey famine  then rolled along the ground for a  long distance. The store building at  Rosier appeared to be flying in all  directions. There was a perfect cloud  of straw hats from the building and  they must be going yet, I should  imagine, from the rate at which they  were travelling,- Then the clond appeared to gathar about the train.  Timbers were blown against the side  of the cars and tender and we could  see but' a few feet to the rear. I  crouched down near the fire box to  escape injury from.the flying missiies,  but happily we pulled through in  safety. About two miles from Rosser a large barn on the south side of  the.track was blown to the ground.  A coal oil barrel, evidently caught up  near Rosser, was twisted and turned  in the'air as if it were paper. A large  cedar tree was seen in the middle of a  ploughed field roots up and had ap  parently been carried -some distance.

In the section itself it is further  rumored that the management of the  Nettie.

Revelstoke School District  It may not be a matter of general  notoiiety bnt-.it- is a fact that the  bounds of the municipality of the city  of Revelstoke and the limits ofthe  Revelstoke school district are by no  means identical. In fact the city is  only a small portion of the district as  far as area is concerned. As described  in the School Act the Revelstoke  school district commences at a point  situated one mile due north of the  centre of the east end of the C.P. R.  bridge, crossing the Columbia ; thence  directly east two and a half miles;  thence in a direct line south two miles;  thence true west 5 miles, thence .due  north two miles, thence directly east  Fpr j-two and a half miles to the point of  commencement.

There is an impression prevailing  that the system adopted by the new  amendments to the School Act by  which thu school hoard has power to  in.ike the estimates and levy the taxes  for the annual requirements of the  ilistiict, leaving to the city council  only the duty of collecting the necessary taxes, is different from that in  vogue in Ontario. Whether this is  true of the rural districts in Ontario  or not the Hekald cannot say, but  lhat as far as Toronto and presumably  other Ontario cities are concerned the  two systems are precisely identical is.  conelus'tvely shewn by the following  quotation from the Toronto Telegram  of last Saturday : "The city council i.s  not permitted to interfere .with the  estimates made by the board for the  maintenance of the public schools.  The law on this point is perfectly  clear. The city council simply collects, along with its own revenue, the  ' taxes which the school board is authorized to levy."  And the Telegram goes on to say:  '���������This arbitrary power was not given  l.o public school boards without consideration. The people's interests will  not be prejudiced, if citizens will do  their duty at election time. 11 this,  duty is shirked, or if school trustees  are. elected on wrong issues, then . the  taxpayers must pay the penalty of  their own neglect or folly."  THE ESTIMATES.  Thee stimates have l>een published  and Revelstoke riding conies in for. a  very liberal share. Under the head  of civil government the Revelstoke  .agency is provided with a government  agent at SlflSO per annum, a mining  recorder at 81020. a clerk' at SjiTSO. a  janitor at S360 and a mining recorder  at Nakusp at $1140.  Under the head "of hospitals and  charities there are two lump grants  oneof S56.o00 for maintenance and one  of 813,250 for assistance toward building hospitals, but as the grant is not  divided up it is impossible to say  whether Revelstoke figures in this appropriation, though the chances are  lhat we do. Two hundred dollars is  granted in aid of a resident* physician  at Ti-out Lake.

It shews that  our mt-inU'i', Mr. Taylor, has succeeded  in impressing upon the government  the requirements, of his district and  that they recognize its import-Mice.  ,,It represents a lot of haiil work no  ''doubt on Mr. Taylor's part, for which  he is entitled to eveiy credit throughout the riding and at the same is a  substantial fulfilment of the progressive policy of development promised liy  the iroveinment.  his chair back and elevated liis heels  on the desk thai the city editor called  his when he was there. "Theie arc  some things in lhu world I'm not  adapted for.   Thai's one."  The rest ofthe "late watch" gatlier-  e.l around, with exclamations of  amusement and surprise, and he continued :  Yon see, I was once applicant to a  division superintendent for a job. and  was assured my application would be  considered the very first vacancy thnt  occurred. Then I waited. The suspense was not especially trying to me,  but. I could see il was wearing on the  friends with whom 1 was boarding  considerably.  One day, however, the "caller," t.he  man that rounds up the train men  when they are wanted tn go out on a  special, came round with a note requesting mc tn call at the superintendent's ollice. Of course 1 complied  with the request, and was told tlmt  they wanted ine to act us assistant  agent for a day or two, at. a place called  Douei-il's, or something like that.  I wanted to know if I had time to go  and park my grip, but they seemed to  think such a delay would materially  prejudice the prospects of the road, so  I grabbed the pass and made for the  train, which I managed to catch after  a brief but exciting chase. Then my  "grief," as the railroad men call it,  began.  "This train don't stop at Doneril's,  young feller," said the conductor, as lie  pocketed his pass and proceeded calmly on his rounds. 1 would have liked  to have asked him what I was expected  to do about it, but his countenance  was so stern and forbidding. I did not  dare.  We were rapidly nearing my destination, and something had to be done,  so 1 inforined a brakeman of my predicament, and he kindly volunteered  to ask "Fatty Dull" t-o slow down a  little at Doneril's and let me cii'. I  presume ho did so* but if there was any  reduction in the speed of the train, it.  was too slight for my nn practiced eye  to detect. Tliebrakeinan encouraged  ine. however, and as there appeared to  be no other -iltei-native, when we were  nearly abreast of the platform, I let go  and dropped.  I did not light right away, hut when  I did land the concussion was something awful, anil as 1 rolled over and  over.. It seemed to me 1 must have  gathered up about all the splinters  there were in that platform in different  portions of my anatomy. I was still  gyrating when the last car whizzed by.  but I heard.the ."blind man's" timely  warning :  "Look out, young man, you'll Lear  your clothes !"  It was a rickety old station, the walls  frescoed with nni'slied potatoes.  Kmpty chicken coops, fruit boxes, berry chests and watermelon rinds, scattered about the platform, exhaled a  faded and depressing odor, and the  only visible indication of life or death  was swarms of ifiies buzzing drowsily  iu the hot sunshine. T picked my way  to the oflice, and presented my credentials to the agent, n tall, lank man,  witli a long neck, careworn I'ealiire.-  anil a still'hat, which seemed out, of  place in the midst of such- rural surroundings. He was absorbed in a  newspaper, and it was some time before lie noticed me. At length, however, he threw down the paper, read  my letter, and invited me to make  myself at home. Then he unbosomed  himself :  "I'm sick and tired of this business,"'  he said. "The work's enough to kill  a mule, but it's the. injustice and lack  of appreciation that makes me hot.  Vou can't pick up a paper without  seeing a lot of 'rot' about the heroism  of locomotive engineers-, and the terrible responsibility lliat makes train  despatcheis hump-shouldered before  their time, but never a solitary word  about station agents.      Why, to   read  it the;  ;-ol.  idlieagain  of sublime exultation transfigured his  homely countenance.  "As the age nt," he said, and hisvoice  had the calmness of despair, "I am re  sponsible for your crimes���������I am for  ever undone, but I bear you no malice,  it was fate, whatever happens, i-enieni*  The papers, a peison'woul*T"t.7iuk an"  engineer went through life with his  eye glued to the rail and a. death-grip  on the reversing lever, and that the  train dispatcher hud to put in all hU.  sp.ue time sopping his head with huir  vignr to keep fi om turning gruv in ���������������������������  single night.    Hul look at the facts :  "Any track-walker can tell you that  an engineer is asleep mere than half  lhe time when out on his line, and that  lhe only way to call his attention to a  .-low flag or a .-top signal is to heave ,i  rock thiough the c.ib window; while,  as for the train de.-patcher. we all  know what he is���������a petty tyrant,  with an eight-hour trick, who������i- most  aiilumi--. duties consist in laivhiiling us  poor wretcho-) out on the line, bulldozing us into sending him u regular 111���������  butt of fruit, fresh iggs and but let*.

"When he. returned in* gave me an  idea of my duties as assistant, agent.  ������������������Vou are fainiliiii-with t.li-;iiit<-i*.-.i,.it.(;  tariffs, and Hie i.rsinscontiwnin! elns-  silicntion.

The conductor walked in and said  "A.-k'im if he's got anything for No.  ���������23."  1 put the question lo lhe train despatcher, over the wire, and he answered "Xo," very plainly and distinctly.  After a while the train pulled out, and  I was looking I'or the "soup ticket" to  report thoni, when the train despatcher began calling the ollice."  I .'inswei'ed, and he said. "Get, No.  2:!."  "They're gone."  ".Stop 'fill."  "1 say they've'gone."  ������������������Ketch 'em buck."  "They're gone, I s "  '���������Shut that, key and go and bring  that train back I'or orders !"  I closed the key and wandered aimlessly out on the pl.'ill'nrin in the vague  hope of seeing the agent, or thiil.--.ome-  thiug might happen. To my surprise,  I saw that the freight hud stopped at  .lu* other end uf the yard, about three-  qunrler*-. of ii mile away. 1 could still  lie.-u- the despatcher calling, and knew  bv I he vigorous sound of the instrument llial. he was mad. Thoughts nf  collisions and (he possibility of being  responsible fur u terrible accident  Hushed across my mind, and I* started  for that train on u run. The distance  was greater than I had imagined, and  I wns completely blown when I came  up with it. Tin; eonduclorwas lying on'  his back, under the cur, fixing something about the air-brake. I managed  lo gasp out that the train despatcher  wanted him I'or orders.  "Tell him to go plumb to h���������1!', the  conductor .shouted, anil then calmly  continued his labor. As there seemed  nothing else lo be done, I started.hack  to the station to deliver the message,  and had gone but a short distance  when the engine passed me bucking  up to the ollice. It was going too fust,  for me to board it, so the conductor  and engineer had been waiting ten  minutes or more when I eventually  reached the station.  "If it's all tin; samo to you, partner,"  said tins conductor, with freezing politeness, "we'd just us soon get out of  here. "We've got families at the other  end of the run, and 'ud like to get  there before they grow out of our remembrance.  1 walked into (hu office and (old the  despatcher I hud slopped the train.  "Why don't you be all day about it,"  ho answered. "There's nothing for  tlieni���������-it's too late to. help 'em any  now."  1 was afraid of the conductor when  T told him this. His jaw fell, and for  fully a minute, ho gazed at me in  round-eyed horror, then rushed from  the ollice and yelled to tho engineer:  ������������������Git a.move on yourself! 'Get out of  here before he has another fit!"  . After that it was comparatively  quiet for a while. T made a feeble  i.'ll'ort"to understand something of the  classifications, but soon gave up the  attempt, as hopeless. One or two lots  of freight and express came'in, und a  couple of trains passed without accident. I was beginning lo think 1 was  getting ou to the business wlTen the  agent returned. He looked more careworn than ever as he sank wearily into  the ono chair the ollice afforded.  ������������������Well, bow youmnkin' it?"lieasked,  and stated, so far the progress seemed  satisfactory.  Next he looked at the way-bills, and  wanted to know if 1 had unloaded that  cow yet.  "No," I answered : ','not yet."  ���������Not yet!" he shrieked. "Great Scott,  man what does Sections 4.3SC, 87 and  SS ol" the Revised, Statutes of thi  United States, and Section 2. Chapter  :*, of the Act of April 3. 1S7S. say?"  I was aliout to confess my ignorance,  but be stopped me.  "Don't   waste   any   more    precious-  time ; get that crilter unloaded befori-  "SlTe's-been fn  thi-  mil   we'n  liei,    1    forgive    you,   but,"   and   he  jammed his hat down over his ears and  will  his   eyes   glared   wildly,   "they  never take me alive."  Then he strode out of [the office and  disappeared.  The sun sunk below the western  horizon and twilight and mosquitoes  invaded the melancholy landscape.  Presently a freight train came along  and baited for water.    It so happened  Lhat, an  empty  box-car stopped right  opposite the office and us I gazed into  the hospitably open door, a great home  sickness and u yearning stole over me.  For a moment I hosiliUed, but a scream  J of mortal   anguish   reached   my   ears  | from  ihe direction of the saloon, and  ! decided me.  Softly closing the oflice doot, I crept  into the untenanted cur, and when  the engineer had ''taken np the slack"  and pulled out of Dimeril, my cnreei-as  un assistant agent was ut an end.  ���������LS.

The importance of the Canadian Pacific Railway policy to many lines of  trade and industry*makes the changes  in the official stuff a matter of public  importance. _\Ir. William Whyte, who  has been manager of the western lines,  bus been made assistant to President  Shaughnessy. This will be regarded  as a hoj-ieful change, for .Mr. Whyte  will no doubt be able to influence the  policy of the railway in accordance  with the principles on which it is believed he desired to direct the western  branch of the system. The monopolistic'power of the ("uii'idiuu Pacific  has not been used* judiciously in the  past, and a spirit of antip-itliy has  grown up inimical to the best interests  of that corporation. Between the  railway and its patrons in the west  there has been mutual antagonism  where tliere should have been a community of interests. No doubt much  unfair criticism has been indulged in.  but much has been thoroughly tie  served.-  *  It is believed that Mr. Whyte.   bus  an appreciation   of  the  wisdom of   a  conciliatory policy Tind of cultivating  the gond"opmion  of the  public,   lt is  to be hoped that his elevation ��������� to 11 position of-, gi eater, influence will effect  a needed change in Llie general  policy  of     the      management.       President.  Shiiughtiessy .has   evinced a drsire  to  continue   and  even    accentuate    the  somewhat  arbitrary   methods ��������� of his  predecessors,-and it may be well i'or  him   tii  have   an assistant inclined to  adopt a different line of policy.    Mr:  Thomas T<iit,   manager uf the  eastern  1 nes, becomes manager of transportation.   This   change  should  also  tend  to mould the policy of the railway on  conciliatoiy lines,  and  will   probably  be acceptable to the general public.   It  may be thut these  promotions show a  recognition of the fact that  the  time  f.ir arbitrary dictation is past. , There  h.is been  also   a  general shaking   up  among the divisional superintendents.  It   is   worthy   of    remark   that    the  Canadian   Pacific Railway directorate  has   always' succeeded   in filling   the  important offices with men of marked  ability,    exceptionally   qualified    for  their     important      duties. ��������� Toronto  Globe.

Oklahoma & Gulf railway, which left  Memphis at 11:-40 Monday night, was  held up by three masked bandits at  Bridge junction.  Ark., at midnight.  The express car was robbed and n  messenger and a ��������� porter shot. The  engine and mail and express cars  were cut off from the train and run  to a point half a mile west of the  placo where the engine was stopped.  The engine was then detached and  run a short distance up the track,  two men remaining guard over the  train men. The third used dynamite on the express car and blew open  thc door. It is reported that everything of value was taken and it ia  believed the bandits haul was large,  as there was a heavy sum in the sate.  The blood hounds from the - convict  camp are now on the bandits' trail.  A  Little  Rock  despatch   says  it  is  stated that over $3,000 was secured in  the hold up of the train,   which only  i'reached Little Rock half an hour late  i nt   G   o'clock   thia   morning.

A boy riding frantically at the side  of the track, wildly waking hia cap,  gave the warning to the engineer that  saved the train from going full speed  into a land slide, as it was the, train  ran into a large rock, knocking off  the-cowcatcher-of���������the-enginc-aud^a  Pullman wai badly "damaged.,  At Aitoona another engine was secured and the damaged ";car was taken  off the train.., Some, of the passengers-said .at-the Union station last  night that' they thought the train  must , have/been' running nearly 60  miles an -hour- when the passengers  were suddently thrown forward in  their seats by.'the application of thc  brakes by the engineer.  Some who were looking out ot the  window at>the time saw the boy on  the "-wheel _ waving his cap as the  train.flew by"him. The engineer had  a .difficult "I task" to'Ttiandle his train,  which was not "only running fast, but  was heavy, and, the rails'were'slippery; which made checking its speed  more difficult.  * J.

As  I .was  dreaming that the milleniura had arrived,   and* everybody  was   advertising in my paper, I was" rudely awakened by a pair of soft white arms encircling my frame, and the pressure  of embonpoint lips upon my kissers.  Thinking that the train was held up  I   mechanically  reached  for  my  gun  (my purse was light enough to take  care  of  itself),- determined  that    no  outTaw sfiould get mo ln his sack at  bargain counter prices. To my amazement'it was a woman who so tightly  clasped   my  blue  suit.    With     bated  breath and gentle tones sho said:  " 'Oh, my darling, why do.you stay  out so late?   Come "to bed. my sweet  hubby?   Come?'  *   "By the shade of horned pumpkins  and six hands around, says I to myself, this   is  horrible.

Mr. Douglas Stewart, inspector of  penitentiaries, interviewed by a Mont-  rel' Star representative repectlng the  influence of prison life upon the average criminal, as. far as ' Canadian  methods of incarceration aro concerned. Mr. Stewart, who is a firm believer in the isolated system ot incarceration at present in force in Belgium, stated that the adoption of this  method of dealing with condemned  criminals was not yet practicable in  Canada, as it would entail a complete  reconstruction of Canadian penitentiaries.  "The isolated system," said Mr.  Stewart, "has this advantage, that it  lets a man 'out of prison at least no  worse than when he went ln. and it  is possible that ho may have imi  proved somewhat 'in the meantime.  Under the present system, where the  prison inmates come daily in contact the one with the other, there is  the danger of an interchange of ideas  as to the most successful methods by  whic bto. evade the law. Tbe inmates frequently are liberated, eag-'-r  to try the most approved methods of  lawlessness communicated to tbem by  others during their period cf confinement.
