It is with Burrow tlint we have to
chronicle the death of Mr. (iimt Andeen. Thc'ilecense.l was one of Cranbrook's most respected ami progressive hUflineHi men. The late Mr. Andeen was born in Arvikn, Sweden,
and was M years of njro. He migrated from Sweden to the United
States some 30 years ago. He lived
at Minn.-apolts for some years, then
going to Montana where he *ngugcd
in prospecting. Later on he wna at
Slocan and in iS-*» his headquarters
was at KrfIo. At the time of the
building of the Great Northern extension to Kuskanook, Mr. Ande.n
had a small hotel at Kuskunook,
later on he moved to Yahk, where he
also kept a hotel, Some seven years
ago he moved from Vahk to Cranbrook and leased the Queen's hotel
from N. Hanson and since that time
ne has been a resident nf this city.
Twoyears ago he built n hotel at
Kitchener where lie made bis perman
eat residence, coming to Cranbrook
occasionally to look over his interests here.      About tive and   a   half

He was a man who united sound
common sense, with atrrng ccn.ict-
ion, just fitted to mould the rude
elements of pioneer society into form
and consistency, and aid in raiding a
high stundard of citizenship in our
young and growing city. How much
this community owes to him and
such as he. it is impossible to estimate, though it would he ft grateful
tns". to trace his in'luenee through
some more direct channels, to hold
him up in his various characters of
husband, father, neighbor and frie •_,
His death has brought the bitter
cup of sorrow to the lips of frl?nds
and relatives. His was H heart of
gold. He was one of nature's noblemen in its truest sense—qrave, generous, manly. His was the soul of
honor, and his friends and frind
ships were warred to him.

Immigrationjjf Children
Mr. Bogne Smart, superintendent
of British Immigration for children,
has furnished some interesting details regarding child immigration in
his annual report for the year ending
March 31st, last. In it he states
thnt 2,669 children were received iu
the Dominion in partial respc-ne to
applies tions from Canadian farmers
to tbe number of 30,000. On beta*
subjected to Inspection for report thi;
returns showed thnt only 29 of these
aforementioned children were failures
and only 179 below the mark, the o-
ther 1,586 giv ng complete satisfaction.
This is only n page from the history of n movement wh'.ch, in the 12
yenrs of its existence, hns proved it
self a very Important brunch of the
immigr.itIon -service. That it is an
s n | ll all Roil success is due to the Indefatigable efforts of its ir. motors,
who have made j, spec alty of careful select ion nnd -.pre a' tra'nlng iu
the ense of each intending young flint
grant while nn the other side ,.f the
waters, und who have kept them under constant supervision on this side
It is not to be wondered at, then,
that of the 2fi,000 British ch ldren
who havo found good homos lu Canada in the course of the last twelve
years the majority have heen n credit
to the orgnnlzntion which placed
tbem here.
The benefits accruing are red pro
cnl to farmer and child alike, and hi
even greater measure, to Brltlan and
Cnnada. In the ense of lhe latter
Canada's population is being swelled
by n desirable class of citizens who
are likely to do their share In fur-
tbel'ingtho interests of the country.
As for I It-It Inn, ii it hough Ihey may
