TW Mirny SONG: la the evening, by the moonlight, dear Louise PRICES i5c 25c Wilson Wilson In a Big Musical Comedy Act The Thatens In another Bcreamiutrly fun-, ny sketch entitled Two Dutch Servants." Little Teddy, in comic songs The Alpine Club's Recent Camp Two weeks ago there came to a 11 close the fourth annual camp oE the Alpine Club of Canada, and the most successful in its history. The eyes of Canada are en the club, for it is a national and doing a big work in opening up our coun- try's mountain regions. This work must always appeal most strongly to us of Western Canajda, for if we are not actually in the mountains, we are near them, and there are few of us wtoo have riot learned to look across the Western sky-line on .brU'i. mornings for their magic conto ;is which stand for so much. Naturally the club meets, which are held annually, attract Westerners in large numbers, for ours is a. "-ig country, and our long -railway jour- neys are an obstacle to caaay v-Lo are on the other side of contin- ent. This year of the one and eighty members in camp, Van- couver sent twenty-five, Calgary as many or more, and Winnipeg was not far behind. Almost every town in Alberta and British Columbia was represented. In addition; members came from many parts of Eastern Canada, from Boston, Philadelphia and New York, and most important of all, the club was honored 'in hav- ing a party, of distinguished English climbers who are in Canada in con- nection, with, the British Association. The camp this year was situated a singularly beautiful spot, in a nat- ural camping ground of twenty acres or thereabouts in extent, near the shores of lovely Lake 0Tiara. This lake, with, its picturesque background of and glacier, its dark encircl- ing pines and deep blue waters, is said by some mountain lovers to riv- al Lake Louise. They have points of likeness, but no two mountain lakes are alike in coloring, and to describe the tones which haunt those magic depths b'affles the cleverest pen. One must become the devoted slave of tine nymph of the waters before the secret beauties are disclosed, and even then -the glimpses vouchsafed are fleeting and elusive. It is this quality of elusiveness which constitutes the greatest charm of these beautiful mountain lakes. If you were to bore hole through the glacier at Lake O'Hara you would come upon Lake Louise, and the mountains around Lake O'Hara are of course the same as those seen from Lagigan, Victoria, Lefroy, Scha- fier and seen from a different view-point. It is surprising what a -difference it makes, and it took some time to recognize old friends with their backs turned. The mountain, chosen this, year for the graduating climb was Huber, 041 feet, and a climb requiring high qualities of perseverance and judg- ment. Fifty-five new members were able to qualify on it. Of these one party deserves special mention. On. the Thursday morning of camp five parties, with guides, set out early. It was very cold at four o.'clock, and after they had well started, show commenced' to fall and it grew very stormy. Some of the climbers were not dressed warmly enough for such a day. and fis the storm continued, the guides after a consultation, de- cided to turn. back. Four parties did so, but a fifth under ,the leadership of Konrad Kain, the club's own decided to push on. In this party were three ladies who had never .ditched, before and one gentleman, an active member of the club. Though one lady was without gloves, and re- fused to take the guide's, saying that "a fellow who wont in the mountains without gloves had no right to they reached the top in safety, and arrived -m camp the heroes of the day. Another climb' of exceptional interest was that of JJungabee, at the head of Paradise Valley by Sir. V. Fynn of the Eng- lish Alpine .Club, and 3Ir. Oliver Wheeler, son of the president. Six years ago Professor Parker, of Co- lumbia University, accompanied by Dr. Eggers and two Swiss guides, made the ascent by a long .and diffi- cult route. Since then the moun- tains had not been tried again till a. ago when Mr. Fynn-and Mr. Wheeler began vto recconoitre. Three weeks ago Air. Fynn went to within 300 feet of the top a week later he his companion got to a place about an hour's climb from victory, and 011 Saturday, two weeks ago, they conguered. They fouud that in the previous trip they had I been only thirty feet from tho top, when u storm had interfered with their vision. Mr, Fynn, who has more than 400 ascents to .his credit. was inUutt-d to give an account of the cl'iml) at the camp fire that even- ing, and all -that happened between1 "Left camp 2.45 a.m." and camp 0.30 p.m." was listened to with absorbing interest. But all the clrmbs wero not of a dillicult nature, Hu- ber. was quite feasible under ordinary weather conditions, and the south peak of Odoray attracted many. two days' trip through Abbot Pass to Paradise Valley with its twenty miles of entrancing view over rock, snow and was taken by many hardy members who enthusias- tically pronounced it well worth the tramp. One party achieved distinc- tion during the stormy weather by, going to the Chalet at Lake Louise for the night and by being made sub- jects for al.l kinds of photographs as soon as camera owners descried them To the tourists the climbers in climbing trim, seemed like some new kind of inhabitant hitherto unheard of. To the little Jap waiter who tried to satisfy their appetites they were also objects of admiration. Ru- mor has it that to one of the party brought three quarts of coffee and at last had to be relieved by one oi his countrymen. For those not desiring "big things" there were pleasant trips arranged every, day to the Opabin Pass, Lake McArthur and Lake Ocesa, which yielded full measure of enjoyment. The mountain flowers were abundant masses of "painted cup in all its scarlet splendor, the dainty Dryas, the yellow Alpine lily with its nodding head, the Anemone with its silky seed pod, the Saxifrages and Wintergreens, the Rhododendron, the .white Everlasting, and, daintiest of "all in soft patches, the beds of hea- ther, -some red and some white. Wide scope there was for the botanist and flower lover. It was at night, however, around the blazing of the big camp fire where gathered botanist, scientist, geologist and climber, that the true pulse of the camp was felt- Here one partook of the spirit of Camaraderie as the events of the day ,vere dis- cussed, and shared the glow of en- thusiasm when deeds requiring self- denial and patience were recounted. Here after a day's lusty work it was pleasant to lie at ease and watch the sputtering Oanies light up the dark corners, to note the sombre pines dark against the sky, and; then to turn upward, with a sigh of content. to those mighty fastnesses above ever keeping watch. It was surely the "psychological moment" for. the speeches of the visiting climbers, and their bits of travel-lore., told so modestly .and de- lightfully, were of absorbing interest. That, veteran climber of the Alps, Mr Edward Whynipor, now growing to be CHAMBERLIN is our biggest favorite with old and young. 2 for 25c. IRON FRAME BRAND- for 50c. TOOKEBROS. LIMITED.

Trolessor Harold Bixon, F. 11. A. of Manchester University, can tell capital stories, equalled only by those of Mr. A. !_.. .Amery of the London Times, and was correspond- unt for it 'during the Boer War. His tales of climbs in. South Africa were splendid, and his yarns about lions unexceile-d. It was a great pleasure to have Tvlr. A. JU Mumm, of Hima.- j lay an fame, tell in his quiet way something- of Uganda and the Moun- tains of the Moon. Another climber who had done things was Mr Geoffrey Hastings .who was induced to speak oi' his experiences iri." the Himalayas when the noted climber Mummery lost his lite. Mr. G-. S, Vaux, of Philadelphia, .and his sister, who come of a family notod for scientific work in''the Canadian. ..Rockies, were present, and told of trips and climbs undertaken years ago when, the moun- tains were less known; than at pres- 'ent. Altogether these talks around the camp-lire; were of far-reaching in- terest, arrd not the least profitable part of the canip. j is a noble sport and in the very nature of it bound to exert a powerful influence upon its i devotees. A man cannot stand on a high, mountain peak and view the sea of peaks around him without a sense of the omnipotence o'f the Hand that made thein, and a correspond- ing- sense of -his own littleness. Small things are forgotten, and the clearer view that comes is recompense indeed j for t.he toils of the climb. The poet understood when he wrote Thou -who woukl'st see the lovely and the. .wild Mingled in 'harmony on nature's face. Ascend our rocky mountains. Let thy foot Fail not for on their tops The beauty and the majesty of earth j Spread wide shall make I thee to torget The steep and toilsome way. There. as t-hpu standest, The haunts of men below thee. and j around 1 The-mountain summits, thy expend- j ing heart j Shall feel a kindred with the loftier world To which thou art translated, and partake The enlargement of thy vision." Took Two Games" From the Hat Medicine Hat, Aug Miners made a show of thi- leader, ia both sanies of double header here today by playing fast, classy ball whilst the locals put .up an article that would have shamed uu amateur nine. The pitchers on both teams worked nicely at both games but the home- sters gave no support in the field to their slab artists. Jack Corrigan starred in right field, the big fel- low covering all kinds of ground and taking all kinds of chances. McGarry also did stellar, work on third and the opinion was generally expressed that he looked after the difficult corner in -better style than any third baseman seen here this year. In the after- noon' game fast double plays on the part of the Miners were pulled off on two occasions when the- bases were filled and only one out. McGarry figured in both. In, the evening Medicine Hat had a grand chance to tie the game up in the last inning. After Harper had been retired in an infield out, Whis- man batted for Nelson and got down on 'a hit. Bennett was walked and Campbell hit by a pitched ball. Wil- son and Zimmerman who have been hitting great guns recently for extra bases were next up and both drove long flies into deep left. Chesty, Cox, however, was Johnny on the lopoV'and Whisman the only man to tally, he being able to make home on the throw in off Wilson's skier..
