The government reserved  the land tit the west end of'Jin ker street  for the exchange, but when the Canadian  Pacific officials  were asked   to  complete  the  trade  they  "crawfished,"  and said  their land had  becotrie  too valuable to  giveaway.    So it is not  likely that the.  people of Nelson will ever secure  title to  the   Mall    street    ���'recreation    ground,"  and     the     ground     cannot     well     be  '���made     suitable     for     outdoor     sports  until   a   title   is   secured,     o The    people of Nelson take an interest in  outdoor  sports, and  there should  be grounds on  which all could enjoy the sport in which.  they take an interest.    JMttuy of the old  country   people    were   cricket    players  at school and  college   in   their  boyhood  days, and take no great interest in any  other game now.'   The people from Eastern Canada are all either players  or ad-    ]  mirers of lacrosse or baseball, and see no  fun   in   watching   a   game    of   cricket.  Americans  are   inclined  to  tennis,  and  are troubled because of tlieir inability to  secure enough ground on wliicli to make  a court.    Last  year  the council had under consideration the purchase of a  plot  of ground near the cemetery, intending  to   make   it  a  recreation   ground;   but  the-election last January knocked their  plans sky high. There is a. plot of ground   "  lying between the Hall Mines road and    ^  the tramway,distant about a mile from  the postoffice,'that is said to be in" e.very:'"  Avay  suitable for such purposes.      The  laud should be acquired by the city, but  if the council  do not  Ariew  the project  favorably, then let the people''tlieniselves  organize  and acquire;-an area sufficient  fdr; all  outdoor   sports,  including horse'  hieing:' .���.Twenty acres  would  be ample  for it half-mile track, a base ball  field, a" V  lacrosse field, .. cricket field, a h_ilf-do._e_i  tennis courts, and  a  golf link,  the ���admirers of each particular sport:-i_hpi,T6vingyy,  jth.eir.'qAjy.i^'field's^,but, the grounds}tp]l he . 1;.;  ;jicFd?^in^$^^  |f&1#*mflf&l8cffli^  .ijiltiat^ye^the cit^  H^I^^^^^^^^-^i^ou^S^- -*!ffe  (^M(T^P^'^dmpf^  ��AfefSst��-,tin.g".tha-t the.��Dpi'iKe'jiforC".the:"lnibS  ""--.'.aFI    'i*'-0"*'1   -DD- -QD      -"P    ��� D"n     '"^       &Dnfl    D     ������."-no* ^2-0-iBjn'-tfn   "aSS  DnD    fi   fl'DW'  thd  j. vcci j\-:teleg|a-y ^|i��c^  eV ��];l>$r^.)i\�� .����celej^  on  h\.m--iii!ile, have  Ca Igary.    _\Tft ijager*  .left  for A^ancoiiver  The True Blue a Producer.

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  A   CONTEST   IN   WHICH   SCIENCE  Had No Show.  There wore five of us in fche party���six,  counting Long Tom, the guide. After  two ��� days' hard -climbing, whieh the  burros endured with exemplary fortitude,  Ase arrived at the little valley high up in  the mountains, through Avliich threaded  the troufc-streain.  "Jest you all go over into tlie cabin  there and make yourself eoinf'ble, while 1  'tend to gefctin' this stulf unpacked," said  Long Tom ; "there ain't no one there. i\Iy  pardiier, he's down below."  "The cabin appears to be two cabins,"  said the colonel,as Ave approached.it.  "That is for economy in ridge-poles,"  said the doctor;��� '���.sleeping apparfcmeuts  on one side and kitchen on the other. In  the space between, you keep your fishing-  tackle and worms."  We entered the right-hand section of  the twin cabin, which proved to be the  kitchen side. There was not much furniture���a table of hewn.Jogs, a. chair of bent  saplings, and a rough bench.  However, Ave did not notice suck furniture as there was, for each member of  the. party, as he stepped over the high  threshold, had his'attention instantly attracted by the stove, and a brief roundelay of ejaculations went a long the group.

Your  draught theory'is no good; the longer  the pipe, if it is straight, the better the  lire will burn."  '���Professor,", remarked the colonel, "I  regret to have to tell you that your  money is gone. Long Tom told me, on  the way up. that his-partner did all the  cooking, and he is a. man of rather short  stature." Tho colonel then paid his com-  l-limei-fc-. to the jack-pot, and continued:  "Now, my idea is that the stove heats  the. room better there than on the floor.  It is 'only'a- cooking-stove, to be sure, but  Avhen the winter is cold it makes this  room comfortable. Being up in the middle of the space it heats it all equally  Avell, which it could not do if it Avere  down below."  * The doctor greeted this theory Avith a  loud laugh. '���Colonel," he said, "you are  wild���'way off the mark. Hot air rises,  of course, and the only way to disseminate it is to have your stove as low as  .possible. According to your idea, it  Avould be a. good plan to put the furnace  in the attic of a house instead of in the  basement." " '  "I think." said the colonel, "that i  could appreciate your argument better if  you would ante."  "The pot is mine," said the doctor, as  he deposited his coin ; "you will all adopt  my idea  the  moment you  hear it,  ancl  stQck'-br  ff^:S']fi��aSh^  im^^w^^^^^J^^ tew  ���Jyb& ab:-,  A Business Chance  The iindersiBned will sell the following real estate  and pergonal property at a bargain:  Nine-room house and ten lots set out In orchard  Four-room cottage and five lots.

"Is that supposed to be science ?" demanded the professor.  "Well," said the stock-broker', doggedly, "never mind the seasons. Experience  is probably good enough for Long Tom.  He finds that lie gets a. better draught for  his stove by having it up in mid-air, so  he has it there."  "The right explanation," began the  professor, "is the simplest. My idea is  that "  "Excuse nie," interrupted the stockbroker, tapping the table; "are you in  this pot?"  The professor ma.de a deposit and proceeded : .       *   .     ���  '"Have you noticed that our host, is a  very tall man? Like most men of his  height, lie hates to bend over.

This room is very  small; it has but little floor-space, and  none of it goes to waste. -Vow, if he had  ���put the stove doAvn Avhere Ave expected to  find it, Long Tom could not have made  use of the area underneath, as you see he  has done. On all sides of the supporting  posts you Avill notice there are hooks, on  which he hangs his pans and. skillets.  Underneath there is a kitchen-closet for  pots and cooking utensils of A'arious sorts.  What could be more convenient? Under  your ordinary stove there is room only  for a poker and a few cockroaches."  The judge, who had been listening to  the opinions offered by the others with  the same grim smile that occasionally ornamented his face when he announced  that au objection wus overruled, now  stepped forward and dropped a coin on  the table. He then rendered his decision  as follows:  "It appears that none of you have  noticed the forest of hooks in the roof  just over the stove. They are not in use  at present, but they are there for some  purpose. I imagine that during the winter months huge pieces of venison and  bear's-meat dangle over the stove,  and are dried for use later. Now, if the  stoA*e were on the floor, it Avould be too  far from the roof to be of service in this  Avay."  "Here conies old Tom," shouted the  colonel, avIio had stepped to the door  while the judge was speaking.  The old trapper put down the various  articles of baggage with Avhieh his arms  were loaded and came into the kitchen-  cabin where we all stood. He glanced at  the group and then at the stilted stove  iii our midst.  ��� "I see  you air all  adniirin' my stove,"  said he, "and I'll bet -you've been a-won-  deriu' why it is up so high."  : "Yes,  Ave have,"  said   the professor  LUMBER  SHINGLES  All  kinds  in  stock  SASH  DOORS  MOLDINGS  .Money*3d>laanV��qrvbul^  ;p..Min|ng, shade's".for-sale." ^i"}"? .T.^ ",,: '"���  ' ".

"Well, why is it up so high?" demanded the stock-broker, impatiently, Avith a  side glance at the well-developed jackpot on the table.  "The reason's simple enough," said  Long Tom, with a grin that showed his  bicuspids; "you see we had to pack all  this stuff up here from down beloAV on  burros. Originally there was fourj'ints  of that stove-pipe, hub the cinch wasn't  drnwed tight enough on the burro that  was carryin' them, and two of Via slipped  out and rolled down the mountain.

Ib is  to be hoped that the report is not true,  in spite of its .reputed good authority.  Apparently the Avishes of the people living in the district affected are least to be  considered, and by denying them transportation competition the clutch of the  Canadian Pacific mouopoly in British  Columbia Avill be stronger than eA*er.  m Tremont Hotel  <4^17ts' pur^isl?.^��  Neglige Shirts  in Ceylon Flannel, SilK Stripes,  English  Oxfords, at]d Fancy Ginghams, from 65c to $1.25 each.
