HART "TOUCHED.' A strange story was loltl in Montreal by a victim of pickpockets, who are operating in the vicinity of tho railway stations uihI for whom tho city doteotives and also tho Cunad -lan Pacific railway detectives of that cHy are on tho lookout. Mr. J. M Hart, the proprietor of a hotel in Edmonton, nn'.vixl in Montreal mi Saturday. At Winnipeg, on the way down, a young man entered tho train and made a row with Mr. Hart over tho occupancy of u certain l>erth. Ho leaned over Mr. Hurt, protending to pick something up, and then stated that ho was going to ask for tho intervention of tho conductor. H, left, but never camo, back, much t tho sorrow of Mr. Hart, who, when he arrived in Montreal, found that ho had been relieved of f800 in cash and negotiable notes to tho valuo of $15,000 and a ring worth about $250. On his arrival in'Montreal ho notified tho dotectives of 'both tho C.P.R. and tho city force. Mr. Hart loft for Amherst, N.S., whoro !to Is A REPLY TO CRA.VI1ROOK. (Nelson News.) Editor the Dally News-, it is apparent the Cranbrook lacrosse club desires to play all Cnnndn against the Nelson team. Well ami good. We , were making arrangements to play I other teams during the fnir, t.ut i have stop|ietl all negotiations and now make tho following offer to Crnnbrook: The program of the fair calls for two games, one on the ternoon of the 20th ami the other on the 2lst. The Nelson team, composed of memlwrs resident in this city during twelve months, challenges any teant the Cranbrook's can placo in the Mold, irrespective of ationality, residence, or any other thing, and will pay the fares and expenses of the "Crnnbrook" or other team sent from Crairhronk, and 111, further, present each of the selected" team with a gold medul provided they defeat the Nelson team. In all games this season we have played against teams with hn ported players; but It appears thnt Crnnbrook wishes to meet us with a team mado up of New Wcstiiiinscnr and Toronto men, and in order to show that wo are just as good nnd, perhaps, a trifle better than Leth -bridge, t his offer is made. W� have layed "homo men" during tho hole summer while Cranhrook imported over half of its team. For that reason we asked to have n gamo between "residents" of the two places. Cranhrook objects. Uill hey now meet the Nelson lacescon at work he has convinced himself that drought-resisting cereals can bo grown. "I do not think that the problems of acclimatizing cereals or species of any other kind," says Mr. Oauss, "to arid conditions havo been solved. It will require a long time end much patient and careful work to tench the desired goal. Rut I am fully convinced that although tho way may be long it Is practiooiblo to traverse It. and that it presents th  most satisfactory solution of tho problem of arid agriculture in that pnrt of tho country which lies cast of tho Rocky Mountains." Mr. Gauss is as,* a prophet who has pointed tho way. From results thus far obtained by him. R -atoms eor-tain that in tho course of time. Perhaps a few generations1, all tho west will have become productive through the planting of seeds from plants which have boon acclimated and which have become accustomed to an arid soil after having been raised in a humid soil. - Denvor RAYMOND FAIR ;  . .
