Statement Of [Promoter Of Finder' Creek Line -Fine Sample Of Oats-No Truth In Report About Settlers Losing Homes (Special to the Herald) Pincher Creek, Aug. at this point continues to be centred in the new -railway, and it is gratifying toe able to state that all the prelim- inary matters pertaining thereto are progressing satisfactorily. J. A. Taylor is authority for the statement that the grade of the road will be equal to that of the Grand Pacific. Eighty pound rails are to used and the roadbed suffi- ciently substantial to permit of the heaviest kind of traffic being hauled over it. These facts would indicate that the company not only know what they are about, when it comes to rail- way building, but are wise in their generation. Still another proof becomes mani- fest that the company means all it says anent the completion of part of their line this year, when the informa- tion comes from the same head that all the tents and grading materials have already 'been purchased. TMs means 'that just as soon as the con- tract has been let, no time will be lost in getting grading operations un- der way. Speculation as to Station Speculation is ripe yet among pro- perty holders at the west end of town as to where the station will be located. As a matter of fact the company has not decided on the site of the depot ttiemselves yet, and opinion is general that until such time as they do thej "knockers" who are credited with having so much" to say on the subject should take a back seat for the time being. When all is said and done, the railway company, like other cor- porations of its ilk. will very likely suit itself as to where their line will enter the town and in the location of tneir station. It is almost incredible, however, the amount of cold water tba't is be- ing thrown on the railway project by a limited few who appear to think they should have been consulted in the matter first, last and all the time, because such a consultation has not taken place, or ever will, are re- sorting to dog in the manger tactics. Nothing in Reports It is a. matter of relief and satisfac- tion that the reported damage to set- tlers homes in the So'uth Fork and Mid-die Fork had no founda- tion in fact- The rumor got abroad that several houses in the localities named had :been burned out while the forest fires were raging- About forty men from the afflicted sections made a gallant fight for their homes and families against the devouring ele- ment. Had it not 'been for the stren- uous and unselfish efforts of 'these volunteers, who accomplished splen- did work under great difficulties. Pincher Creek would no doubt have had to protect itself in a similar way. Not a single house was -burned and only a single accident occurred while the men were out. A. N. Mouat was leading a horse by the halter which became frightened and unmanageable for the time being. He was knocked down by the animal, which stevped on his back. The -injured man -ras un- conscious from three o'clocK on the day of the accident until seven the following morning, but he has almost fully recovered since then.

They were grown on an improved -cultivation., the method 'being rolled land, on which cattle were allowed to run afterwards, there- by packing the soil and retaining the moisture. The oats will reap fifty ibushelg to the acre. The Oddfellows and Rebekahs will hold their postponed basket social at I Beauvias Lake on La-bor Day, Monday, Sept. 5th.
