This question was asked last Sunday by Monsigncur Hole, the Father Vatighan of Kranee, of Trouville, where he preached a .sermon on "The Simple Life," to a fashionabtc crowd tif habitues. The sermon was a merciless casti-gation of the extravagances and vices of the idle rich, who for a fortnight every year throng the gayest beach in the world. "When l.ucullus dines with Lucul-lus," he continued to the representative of the French ana foreign smart set who packed the church, "and is served with nightingales' tongues, has he dined better than Sancho at Toledo ?" just as those who honored humanity most of their virtues adopted by preference the most austere ways of living. Evangelic simplicity, he said, was in harmony with all the most noble, most intelligent and best . in the world, he added. "if that be so, you continue to load yourselves with masses of geegaws to transform your insides into bazaars and museums and to surround yourself with an army of slaves and servants, then I am entitled to tell you that you give yourselves a lot of trouble to prove that you do not belong to the real elite of humanity, and that you have no intelligent conception of life." In denouncing the modern race for riches, Mgr. Bole said : "The real galley slave is he who has never had enough, who is possessed by the frenzied desire of always becoming richer. Look at their faces. The overworked are not the working classes ; they are those who flock every year to luxurious resorts by the seaside and crowd the caravansaries of the watering places."

LOW, THUS AVERTING SMUT EVIL Winnipeg, Alan., Aug. ID.-"Cut, early, even when the wheat is green," is the advice given to the farmers of the W�st by D. G. Low, of Winnipeg, who has three years' experiencing of harvesting in Southern Manitoba, having farmed at Union Point. Mr. Low says that time is of much more importance to the farm-ar than having the crop that is finely ripened amber and golden. He says that, by cutting early many of the dangers of frost can be obviated, and much of the crop saved. Another of the worst enemies of good crops, smut, is minimized in this way. When the crop is fully ripened the smut bursts and pervades the whol-a, bringing about what is known as tag wheat, which yields about the price of good crop. If the wheat is cut early the smut balls have not burst yet, and the greater portion of the wheat is intact and bushels are saved, yielding the best of prices. Mr. Low quotes from his experience of farmers, whose crops hav-3 been as much as two-thirds smut, but cutting early, they have been able to get the price given for No. 1 special. It Is also the opinion of"Mr. Low that a great deal of thrashing will not be done this fall, and much wheat will be left in the fields through the winter. He advises farmers to inaka big stooks of Vi to IS sheav-38, with two or three big sheaves on top. which will protect the grain through the winter, and leave It ready for threshing in the spring. FIREMEN ARE HARD TO GET AT PRESENT RATE OF WAGES H|�AID IN THE CITY OF MONTREAL Montreal, August ^18.-Fire Chief Tremblay tonight stated that unless the rates paid firemen were increased the force would not be kept up to its full strength, lie states that there arc very few candidates, while %he resignations arc frequent. There have been twenty-live men who left the force in the last month alone. The majority of the firemen only receive 1700 a year and arc on duty seven days a week. Laborers are paid better, states the chief. He pointed out that some of the men who left the force at the opening of navigation to take work - on. the wharves, have already earned more than they could earn in a year fighting fires. Sweet Valley, Aug. 18.-Mr. Harry Lynks wae� quite sick Monday and was taken to tbe doctor in Carman-gay but is reported as being better at this writing.

August VI, a marriage license was issued to Mike Ukralnetz and Annie Pohi-ch-eki, both of Hosmer, who were duly united in the bonds of matrimony today, in the presence of a lar^e gathering of friends. The Fernie Civilian Rifle association were invited to tend a team to Hosmer for a day's shoot, with the home team, but owing to the absence of five of their best shots at the B.C. Inland Rifle association's meeting, at Nelson, they were unable to accept, so the event is likely to fall through, for this season at any rate, H. Gould, W. Price, John Minton, Harold Minton and Cecil Minton are the five men representing Fernie at Nelson, and all are well known on the Hosmer range. Charlie Anthony, of the Hosmer Rifle association, had also gone to Nelson to try his luck with the rest of them, and, judging from this season's work, should at any rate be ab'e to hold hiB end up. The Rev. J. T. Ferguson', D.D., administered the sacrament of the Lord's Supper at the Presbyterian Church on Sunday at both the morning and evening services, which were well attended.

W. R. Downie went with his family as far bb Cranbrook, returning to Hosmer the same evening. We understand that Ed. Purcetl is likely to return to Hosmer in the very near future. It will be remembered that he went East with his brother, Billy Purcell, some eighteen months ago, after the accident that befell Billy ai the ItOBsland mines.
