The Chronotype thinks nothing but a

On Wednesday afternoon, the Pem
bina young folks, chaperoned by Mrs.
Kneeshaw and Mrs. McCaffery, went
picnicing up the Red river. The "Chico"
carried up two loads or about 35 of the
boys and girls with their baskets. And
such a dinner! Some said it was the
best "spread" they had ever seen at a
picnic and I think it must have been.
The last load arrived home again at 9
o'clock. The affair was given in honor
of the visiting young ladies in town.
A Trip to the Peace Siver Country.
Richard Hall returned this week from
a trip to the far north, sun-burnt and
tired out, after an absence of two months
and his experience reads like a romance.
Mr. Hall has always had a desire to
see Peace River country and satisfy him
self of what is in store for settlers, and he
has fully made up his mind to stay here,
for a time at. least, before undertaking
another adventure similar to that from
which he has just returned.
He left here on the 15th of May for
Edmonton, where he arrived in four days
in good spirits and ready for the over
land by stage, or as it proved, as best he
could. The distance from Edmonton to
Athabasca Landing, 100 miles, was made
without much inconvenience, bnt when
he arrived at the "Landing" he found
the boat that was advertised to ply the
Athabaska river and Little Slave lake
was not completed, and not liable to be
this season, as the boiler and machinery
was scattered at different places from
short distance out of Edmonton to the
place, where the hull was being construct
ed. At Athabasca he fell in with a party
from Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie,
who were up against it'like himself, and
they invested in two "dug-out" canoes,
provisions, cooking utensils and blank
ets and proceeded on their journey up
the Athabasca river, a distance of 75
miles, to Slave lake, and 120 miles up
the shore of the lake te the mouth of the
Slave river. Here they hired a half-breed
to drive them to the mouth oi the Peace
river. They followed up the river some
20 miles and then crossed uvtf tht hills
into the iuterlor. Mr.Hall left the party
here and started on the return trip alone,
While the rest went on farther.
It was on his way back that Mr. Hall
suffered the most hardships. He rowed
over 80 miles in one day, starting in the
morning at 4 o'clock to cross Slave lake
and landing at the mouth of this liver at'
11 o'clock that night.
Mr. Hall says the country from Ed
monton to Athabasca Landing is rolling
and a great portion of tt covered with
spruce and poplar. Settlers are scattered
all the way,, in. limited number. The
"Landing" has a Hudsoo Bay Company!
trading post, two other stores, a Catho
lic and Churchof England misskw, stop

ces. On the Athabasca river the ice was

Tbp Peace river is'astreata 70Q yards

banks are steep and the- ''Peace River
Valley" we hear so .much about is nar

riven are both magnificent-streams, with
Swift currents and high banks.
The sun would only be out of sight
three and a half hours out of tiie twenty
fosf^and it was very warm when it was
shining. Four nights jn succession there
was white frost visible and vegetation is
very backward, owing to the drouth,
which extends over the entire northwest
from Moosejaw to as for as they went.
Mr. Hall says the trip will be a good
one when transportation fadlities are
farther advanced, but until then he does
not advise anyone to make the trip. The
distance traveled, from Pembina to the
point where he turned back, is in the
neighborhood of1,500 miles.

Economy is a good thing in its place. Some
folks are born with it, others chase after it, while still
others have it thrust upon them. Either class will
appreciate what I have to offer this week,
This time of the yedr is very productive of
freckles and tan, and and I s'pose you could take 'em
oft with Pigeon Milk and Cucumber Cream Soap,' but a
pint of prevention is worth a bucketfull of cure, so
I'm going to offer a bunch of 25 cent suhbonnets this
•week at 15 cents each. They are all colors and sizes
and will do the work slick as a whistle.
Then you may need a window shade or two.
After the seasons selling tve have some odds and
ends in different colors and styles, worth up to 65
cents each. They are yours at a quarter apiece or 4
for a dollar. They're all good goods and worth the
original price.
