Come to the Eureka for a hearty faugh tonight. to the Herald.) Pincher Creek, Dec. very pretty wedding took placo at the Lome of Mr. George Whittaker, -Li- cense Inspector, when his youngest daughter, Stella, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony on Wednes- day, Dec. 2, to Mr.Henry A. Haacke, of Steveuville, Montana. The cere- mony was conducted by Rev. R. E. Fiulay, in the presence of a few friends. The bride was gowned in white organdi trimmed with white rib- bon and her travelling dress was a grey cloth suit. She was the recip- ient, of numerous presents testifying to the high esteem in which the bride is held. A dainty supper was served for the wedding party and after all had done justice to it, the happy cou- ple took the train for Stettier where thev will reside.. Eight hundred million acres used to- lie accepted as the area of that part of Canada covered by forests; two hundred million acres is the es- timate of the commercially valuable forests as given by Dr. B. E. Fer- now, head of the Faculty of Forestry at the University ol Toronto; one hundred million acres, Dr, Judson F. Clark; of Vancouver, B. C., thinks wpuld cover the "actual cutting area, that is, the area ou which are found forests of commercial value, as measured by the present logging this figure including the areas bearing timber suitable for pulpwood or saw timber Both Dr. Fernow and Dr. Clark arc well-known authorities ou forestry subjects, the former is the author ot the well known work, "The Econom- ics of which is -practically the only work in English treating comprehensively this aspect of the subject. Dr. Clark has had extend- ed in forest work in connection with the U. S. Forest Ser- vice, and Jater as Forester to the Province of _ Ontario, a position which he resigned to go into private busi- ness in British Columbia, where he has had several years' experience of work in the woods there. For a long time the people of Can- ada- were quietly and complacently congratulating themselves that their timber supply was "inexhaustible." Estimates like the above, given by men -who can speak with authority on the subject, must wake them up to the necessity, not only of guarding from fire and other enemies the for- ests they now have, but oi introducing rational forestry management, so as to increase the growth of the forests and get from them the largest amount oi timber they are capable of produc- ing. BARONET SAVED HIS London, Dec. amusing in- cident happened in connection with the stonelaying ceremony of a new home for nurses at Salop Infirmary. The ceremony took place in an en- closure reserved for ticket-holders, and when a .well known Shropshire baronet was about to enter the en- closure a policeman refused him ad- mission because he was unable to produce a ticket.

HIPPOPOTAMUS MADE KEEPER A PRISONER Some Excitement When the Big Fel- low Wts Being Moved to the Ele- phant House New York, Dec. the hip-" popotauvus iu the Bronx Zoological Park, who bus been having n lot of fun over the inability of the keepers to transfer him from the antelope house, turned a trick ou Walt Thu- mann, who is his particular custod- ian, which that official will not soon forget. Pete is so big and fat that it was necessary to build a crate to carry him to the new quarters, but he re- fused to enter it more than half resisting all the coaxing of the keep- ers. The crate was stacked with hay aud Thumanu, ss a last resource, camped on its roof hoping that Pete eventually would go all the way in, so that he could slip the door of the contrivance 'and have him fast. After another long vigil, Thumann, at about half past three o'clock in the morning, went into the crate to arrange a new load of fresh hay. H-2 had crawled in on his hands and knees until his feet were just- past the door when Pete, in his usual amiable manner, struck the sliding door with his huge jaw and Thumann was a prisoner. He shouted for a while, but was unable to attract the attention of the watchman, who was in another part of the park. Then he took in the situation philosophically, curled j up on the hay and went to sleep. It was a surprised group of keepers that reached the park in the morn- ing and found Thurnann enjoying his slumbers in the crate, while Pete stood guard outside, with what they are willing to swear was a twinkle in his eye. The Good Company have procured a lease of-the Standard Land Co.'a store on Round St. adjoining1 Oddfellows' Block.

The new store will be fitted up and equipped on even a more extensive scale than the company's present store. High grade groceries fruit, confectionery and ic5 cream will be handled as at present.
