Fire in Cranbrook
At 11 o'clock yesterday morning nn
alarm ol Ure wns mug in from the
Oranbrook Dry Cleaning Works situated on Cranbrook Htreot. it appears
that In heating the gasoline whlcb I*
used In cleaning tho clothes, some
ol the gasoline boiled ovor the side
ol tho reeoptlcal In which It waa being heated, and heenme Ignited with
the are In the furnace room adjoin
ing in which the holler which goner
ate* the steam used to take away tho
fumes that remain on gasoline-cleaned clothe*.
The proprietor ol the establishment
Mr. Geo. Powell, and hi* assistant
Mr. 0. Hernial, wero busy with their
work, both were experienced mo,
wben, without any warning the explosion took place, severely burning
Mr. Powell nnd his assistant, Mr.
Rendal. The      gasoline      Imme
diately Ignited several Indamahle
articles, and the interior ol the building a mass ol flames. Whon tlio
Pire Brigade arrived tho building
was well ablaze, nn being Informed
that all the gasoline had heen removed from the building, the flromen
approached closer to tho burning
building , and just, us the Fire Chief
called lor the firemen to look out, a
a second explosion nccured, this time
Chlel Poster, It. J. Oavnoy, W. flo-
den, and 0, Brady, all member! of
the tiro tirigndo wore Injured. Further precautions were now taken, as
it was possible that more gasoline
wns in tho burning building. It took
llle lire laddies but a short timo to
extinguish the Are.
Tho damage to tho building and its
ouutpmont is cstimnted at about
It is feared tbat Mr. Powell will be
contlneu to hi* home tor some time.
Mr. Soden, a fireman 1* In ths 'hospital.
It is perhaps a curious Incident
that such an accident should have
occurml at this time. Mr. Powell has
for some time boon contemplating
the installation of new nnd Improved
machinery, whoreby the danger from
lire would bo lessened, and nn improvement in the clothes cleaning
business. Mr. Powell 1* an old timer
In Cranhrook, and a rustler for business, and we trust that be, and nil
ol the Injured will soon be able to resume their relative duties.
At 1:45 another alarm was rung in
lor a small fire at Mr. Russet's residence on French Avenue, caused by
an overheated stove pipe, this was
extinguished before the arrival ol the

imlntod Sir Kdward Grey, lorelgn
•e-retarv, a Knlirht of the Garter.
This distinction has been conferred
upon Sir Kdward Grey undoubtedly
nt tho premier's suggestion and In

Kami Home Management.
A wiM man baa said: "As your
women are, so will tbe nation be.
No nation can rise above tbe .level of
its women. Tbe country woman has
her part, An important part, to play
iu the nation's development."
In no other occupation is tbo wife
her husband's business partner so
much us on the farm. Until recently
she has usually been a silent partner, but now both are coming to
realize that the silent partner needs
i get in touch with the outside world
I as much as the active partner.
While ho inlorn.H himself on the best
methods of dry-farming, she must
learn hnw to improve conditions in
the home and to establish higher
ideals in her community, and togath-
er they will manage the farm better
than even before.
In my town several years ago, there
wan a small pox scare and many of
the children were vaccinated. A neighbor hoy of four came to play with
his friend who had the mumps, I met
him at the door and explained that
In* would get the mumps if he came
in. He put his right band upon his
left arm and in n surprised voice said
I   I've been wnxinntod."
Sometimes In solving the problems
of rural life, like this hoy, we think
one preventative) or cure, is all we
need tn apply. The problems are
complex, Borne of us are working tor
better schools, some for better
churches, others for hotter social and
political activities, good roods, lar
eer   financial    returns,   and   bettor
homes It Ih only by working to
gethor, the scientist and practical
farmer, that wo enn solve the problems of rural life, t'rolltnhlo farm
Ing leads the way to the solution of
"winy of the other problems, but will
not. solve them nnnidml.
Unit Is the rndlvldual.
Knrm home mnnngnment aims to
belli farm women by meeting their
problems nn their own ground. It
nlms tn put into practice on Missouri Parma those principles of home
economics nnd agriculture whlcn liave
been tested out by    scientlllc experi
ot the yard. This is an opportunity
for the farmer's wife to increase some
of her love for the beautiful.
Pood tor the farmer's table is another problem I try to meet In some
farm homes I have visited the same
food remains on the table from one
meal to another, except such as is
served hot, until it Is eaten up. There
are often several kinds of Jellies or
preserves and canned fruit on tbe table at one meal. If bot food Is left
over, it will be served in the same
form at the next meal. The baby
with two teeth will be fed on meat
and then the mother wonders why
the bnhy cries, or is sick. These
farm women have been so busy with
the details of washing, ironing,
sweeping and cooking, that they have
fallen into the habit of cooking the
same tood in the same way and do
not think of the many possibilities
of change.
Tbe keeping of farm accounts has
shown several farmers where they
have made poor investments. We expect the accounts of poultry, the
home dairy, the garden, the orchard,
snd the household expenses to show
how the farm home can be better
managed to get more for the time
and money expended. In some homes
a needless amount ot time Is spent
in the kitchen; in others not enough.
W.th the same expenditure of time
nnd energy the few pounds of surplus
butter over tbnt used by the family
will often bring 0 of IT. cents more a
pound If the milk and cream are bet-*
ter cared for nnd the product put up
in brick molds, Hy cure In gathering
eggs nnd in selecting poultry larger!
returns will tie received.

The deplorable sad tragedy, witnessed hy thousands of people, which
iccurred at Niagara Falls B few days
ago, when a man and woman—be-
lioved to be Mr. nnd Mrs. Stanton,
of Toronto—lost their lives through
the breaking of the ice bridge; is illuminated by the splendor of the selt-
lcnying heroism nnd gallantry of the
husband to rescue his exhnusted and
borrow-stricken wife from the jaws of
dentil. That he could have saved his
own life Is generally admitted, hut
the noble fellow contemptously ignored assistance for himself on two
or three occasions. He made several
courageous albeit unfortunately unavailing attempts to save the woman
he hnd promised to love and protect.
When the last vestige of hope had
vanished—realizing that death won
Inevitable—he tenderly lifted his wife,
affectionately kissed her, clasped her
in his arms and sank to a watery
grave in the tumultuous whirlpool
beneath. What an exquisitely beautiful Illustration nf unselfish devotion.

Helen is the daughter of a wealthy
New Yorkor. The poor army oltlcor'H

Irretrievably lacerated by tbe American lady's conduct In "showing him

ho was much In love, nnd even
bought numerous suits of dottles to

some hope for you. Many a fool has
sense enough to win a good wife,
but not sense enough to know it.

this stone that Muses struck, nnd that
it was carried by the Israelites during

stone from Solomon's temple to Spain.
then co to Ireland, thence to Scotland,
then to Westminster.
Only the front and sides of Iho rtone
could bo seen by visitors to the Abbey, for the top is hidden by the seat
of ibe coronation chair for un inspection of the back. To appearance, It
is a piece of pearllsh-gray rock, about
two foot long, sixteen inches wide and

T believe that the popular idea for

The Value of a Pawn
A long lime nun, In luOC, when
Quuen MUalictli was playing chess,
the French aniliassatloi eniered her
room, and white watching the progross
of Ihe game, he aaid to iier, "Madam,
.vou have before you the game of life.
You lose :i pawn; it seems u small
mutter: hut Willi Ilio pawn you lose
the game,"
The IJueen undo: aloud Ills meaning
and saw the moral—that her 11100811
in life ns u queen depended upon
prompt and rlidit action in Utile
things; that a pawn tn the game of
life must not he lost; that Us value in
tire problem of life Is tnculcnnblc. Tlic
lesson taught to tiie queen Is a good
losson for all young readers. Small
mistakes in life are often serious In
result. If you would win the game of
life, you must move your pawns wllh
camion and skill. Small leaking* will
sink  >i ship.    Little foxes  spell the
vinos, A single word Is not muoh;
bill II may separate fust friends. Thu
cost of nne cigar Is a smnll mutter;
hut It often creates au appetite that
destroys a fortune. One glass of nr-
dent spirits Is a llttlo thing, but when
II Is drunk, tho pawn may be lost that
loses the game of life.
A step may bo a, short one, and, In
Itself, hut of Utile account; but. If It.
is taken In the wrong direction it will

You know it is destined tn lie the (jreat industrial tenire
of the Vancouver Metropolitan district.
You know that the population of Coquitlam has already
increased 300 per cent—that the whole town is in a state of feverish
activity—that investors all over America are looking to Coquitlam,
and that within live years il will have a population of at least 25,000.
You know that the (.'. 1'. R. bought a thousand acres for their
terminals from and through the Coquitlam Terminal Co.
Your common sense will tell you that although Coquitlam will
in all probability have a population of 30,000 in a few years, this
centrally located property will be the first to increase in value, and
will make the most money for its owners. Take the city of Vancouver, for instance, its original area was only 3 1-2 miles, and it is
in this district, between F'"alse Creek and Buirard Inlet, in the vicinity
of the C. P. R. tracks, station, etc., that property has become most
valuable. History is repeating itself at Coquitlam. Investments
made near the terminals will become enormously profitable. Close
in property will here, as in every thriving city, be always in demand
at fabulous prices.
Get a map of Coquitlam. See the location of the terminals,
the new business centre, the industrial centres, and note lor yourself
that it is right here —in the very heart of the c< niing activin —that t,ur
property is located, Then come to our office. We believe we
are better informed as to the location of Coquitlam than any
other person or persons, and are, therefore, best qualified to advise
vou. The directors  and stockholders  of the Coquitlam Terminal
Company are men of prominence in Western Canada affairs—among
them half a dozen conservative bank managers—and undoubtedly
possess a more intimate knowledge of the developments taking place
in Vancouver to-day than any simili.n body of men.
Prices:       Lots from $150 to $1250.       Terms
