Tho reign of Annus nineteen
Has duly passed away,
And nineteen twelve in robes of white
Now holds his regal sway.
Wo hall with Joy the new-born year;
And pondor on tho scono,
While memory turns with vain regret
On things that might have boon.
The seerot of tho past's revealed,
Tho future's yet to know
Yet hope burns high in early breast,
And hearts are all aglow
Oh may tho fervent wish ho soalod
As hand to band Is given
Prosperity In every home,
And pence like that in heaven.
May   trade   and   commerce still increase,
And on the land and sea
A bounteous harvest till the boards
And shared In unity,
The beggar with the rich man dine
The laborer with tho lord
And ninotecn-twelve of all the years
Be one of sweet accord.

many details regarding the killing of

It was moved by Messrs. Rollins
and Fink that the trout season extend from May 1st to October 15th
of each year.
After considerable discussion it was
moved by T. Coven, seconded by L.
Clnpp, that a local resident game license of 82 for Cranbrook district be

The present game act permtts a

Production of "The Country Girl"
, by Local Talent
It Is with great Interest that the
public of Cranbropk are looking forward to the forthcoming production
of the famous Eogllsh musical comedy "Tho Country Girl," which will
bo presented at tho Auditorium on
February 6 and 7, by tho Cranbrook
Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society, under tho direction of George
n. Ingram.
Tho society made Its debut luBt
season when It presented "The Geisha" and tho high claBS work of this
organization ensures nn entertainment thlB season which will prove a
great musical and artistic treat.
Many of the faVorlteB of laBt year's
production will be seen and beard to
great advantngo In "Tho Country
Girl" and with some newcomers who
are very proficient artists iu tho matter of musical comedy, the public can
look forward to an Improved performance this year. Amongst tho prominent roles, we find the names of
Archie Roworth, who as "Barry"
(tho part originally created by the
famous Huntley Wright) is chief fun-
maker. Mr. Raworth's excruciatingly funny rendition of the part "Wun-
hi," which he "played In the "Geisha"
stamps him "aa an artist and this
year's production affords him ample
opportunity for displaying his well-
known histrionic abilities. Mrs.
Bouchard who playB "Nan," Mlsa
Margaret Kennedy as "Sophie," Mrs.
Stevenson as "The Princess," Mrs.
Benedict as "Marjorie," Mrs. A. L.
McDermot as "MrB. Qulnton Ralkes,"
all have good parts, while the chief
honors amongst tho males are divld.
ed as follows:
Geoffrey Challoner, Mr. Geo. F.
Stevenson, the Rnjh of Bhong, R. T.
Brymner, Douglas Verity, H. Darling,
Sir Joseph Verity, Mr. Louback,
Lord Anchester, Mr. McKee. Grand-
fer Mummery, Allan Graham, Major
Vicat, D. J. McSweyn.
In addition to these a chorus of
from fifty to Bixty voices will add
greatly to the musical rendition of
this comedy, and a specially organized orchestra will he one of the features.
While the production is being supervised by last year's producer, Mr.
George D. Ingram, he ia being ably
assisted by a powerful executive and
Mr. Louback hns been appointed assistant director to Mr. Ingram. Mr.
Louback's work being confined more
particularly to the stage and Mr. Ingram still retaining charge of the
production as a whole and particularly the miiBlcal portion. I
Tho orcheRtrn as outlined at prcs-1
sent consists of pianoforte, four vlo-
line, two clarlnetB, two cornetB, flute,
piccolo, two trombones and drums.    |
Mrs. Irn Manning Is again the ac- j
compnniste and hor accomplishments
along this line are so well known
that remarks here regarding them,
would be out of place. Suffice It to
say that her most excellent work is
warmly appreciated by tho Operatic
Society, and by all in connection
with It.

The conditions ol the Strathcona

Scotland, is evidently waived by the
j Royal Caledonian curling club (or the
present, as the F.dinburgh 3ootaman
announces that it will be played lor
during the approaching visit ol the
Scottish team to Canada, and in cider to give all parts ol the :ountry
an opportunity to participate in tlio
competition it has decided to have
lour matches — at Halifax. Toronto
Montreal and Winnipeg. The njgre-
gato score in the four matches will
determine the custody of the ..up for
the time being. It Ciinada is victorious it will bo left to the Canadian
organisation to settle the custody of
the trophy more particularly. The
cup was the gift of high commission'

played for when the Canadians visited tho old country two years ago.
Three test mutches were played with
picked rinks Irom tho various sections
of the Itoyal club, and Canada '*on.

like madness or hallucination. Taught
to believe that the Purls butcher was

went down to the great city nnd In a

in the solution of knotty problems.
Some time ago the Inventor desired to
rind the cubic capacity of w certain •'«*■

asked bis mathematicians to solve the
problem. As the story goes, ihe mathematicians, spent weeks of time, tilled
whole books with Ihelr nil ujntions
and finally presented what they said
was n dose approximation to Ihe true
result Thereupon the famous inven
tor placed the vessel on » platform
scale, filled tt to the brim with water,
obtained Its weight when full and
when empty, and In a few minutes he
had a result as good as the mathematicians—for that particular vessel.-

Three Sources of Misfortune.
j Tbe miseries of mankind are of
three sources. First, from God.
"Whom the Lord lovetb he cbasten-
etb;" "Many nre the afflictions of the
righteous." Certain ills there are nut
of human origin. C»Ju permits and
uses them, if he does not actually send
tbem. Tbe second source is from self.
There's a certain Inseparable connection between conduct and Buttering.
"He's   his  own   worst  enemy,  chap-
i lain," I've had the atteudunt nay to
! me In prison nnd hospital. The victim nods his head. "It sure gets ye
in the end," he vouchsafes. "It" refers to the life be has led. Dirt,
drink nnd dissipation have an byproducts distress, disease and denth.
A third source Is from our fellows.
"Man's Inhumanity fo man," etc. The
traveler lu the parable fell not among
! wild beasts, but human beasts of prey.
Jtobbery and murder are not conllned
to tbe desolate Jericho rond, but are
matters of dally occurrence In New
York, New Orleans. Chicago and Sun
Francisco. That coughing, emaciated
girl I attended and buried yesterday

Is greed.    They   haunt  our national
; highways  too.    "Itnslness  Interests,"
: "wsra for marketn." "dollar diplomacy" constitute their yeggman vocabulary.   Nation and corporation are

Must the delicate minis of young
authors (fraught with the unmistakable germs of future excellence) be
subjected tu such scathing criticism,
such severe and inadequate review?
Most emphatically, no: Would you
consider it an expedient course to
punish an infant because it was unable to walk ? I know what your
answer will be, Cprtainly not: Then
why do you subject the young author
to such treatment, because the ideas
from his embyro mind are not thoroughly correct? It is a regrettable
fact thnt a few hasty sarcastic sentences of unjust criticism have repeatedly been the means of stopping,
yea, even the progress of many a
youne genius. Reviewers should,
criticising, study both sides of the
question,—for instance, supposing we
perceived tt five-dollar gold-piece lying in the gutter, covered with mire
Hhoulii we not pick it up, remove the
dirt and retain the gold?—certainly :
Precisely the same mode of procedure
applies to literary effusions; do not
discard a production because there
arc few errors; rectify theBe and pub-
li.-h tbe gem.
Happiness: Without that indispensable ingredient life would he a veritable pandemonium.     Happiness consists in contentment.     A large   percentage of superficial people apparently   labor    under   the   delusion that
happiness is solely comprised In rirli-
es.      In    their opinion   the opulent
man    is   of   necessity n hnppy man.
Such a notion is most erroneous. The

two small children about one    age
playing together in  the street;    ono,
; perchance, elaborately droHHcd,    and
j the other almost in  rags.
Does not the rich mnn'B child appear to regard   his line clothcR     as
encumbrances which prevent him
from enjoying the fun. rather than
advantages' Nol the slightest perturbation, however, disturbs the tranquil equanimity of the poor offspring of
pleblan parents, as he complacently
wallows in the mire, manipulating
"mud pies" or indulging himself to
the full m some other species of juvenile recreation. It is somewhat
similar in the case of adults, although possessing enormous wealth, it
is not always beneficial; but, on the
contrary, frequently irksome, and
proves in many instances decidedly
detrimental to the acquisition of that
priceless gem—"contentment"; Inasmuch as atlluence oftentimes induces
Bullishness, which undoubtedly subsequently degenerates into avaricious-
"Happy is he, who, though the cup
of bliss
Has ever shunn'd him when he thought to kiss;
Who still, in abject poverty or pain,
Can count with pleasure what small

An unfortunnte poor man, who had
never drunk sufficient water to war-
rnnt the disease, waH reduced to such
an exceedingly critical condition by
dropsy, that it was deemed absolutely necessary to send for a doctor. He
thought tbat tapping would, undoubtedly relieve him of his distressing
complaint, and the patient was invited to submit to the operation
this he gladly agreed to do in spite
of the urgent entreaties of his son,
a boy of eight summers. "Oh, father, father, do not let him tap you,"
piteously flcreamed the urchin, in an
agony of tears; "do anything, but
do not let him tap you:" "Why,
my dear child?" said the afflicted
parent, "it will do me good, and I
thall live long In health to make you
and your mother happy." "No,
father; no, you will not. There was
never anything tapped In our house
tbat lusted longer than a week."
Apropos of the "Education Question," which is now being seriously
considered from various aspects, hy
all intelligent persons who have the
mental, physical, and moral welfare
of the rising generation legitimately
at heart, we deem this an opportune
moment for mdeavoring to impress
on the public generally, and that
portion thereof who are pnrents, gU
urdians, or tutors especially, the Imperative comparison In the choice of
trades or professions for tho.e juveniles whom they may have under
their Immediate jurisdiction, with a
view to ascertaining (irrespective of
Individual prejudices) the most appropriate employment for  life.   Judl
eious cautionary counsel coupled with
the foregoing dlsptiKHionate mode of
procedure will unquestionably avert
the manifold domestic catnstroplifes
resulting from misguided notions relative  to compatibility.

18th Year
Victoria, U.C.-Premier McBrlde
through the columns of the Oolonist,
sends tha following new year message
to the people of British Columbia
"I am grateful for the invitation
to extend through these columns
new years' message to the people of
British Columbia and gladly avail
myself of it. During the past 12
months the province has experienced
a wonderful growth in population,
industries and general development.
Extensive railway construction ani
large additions to the merchant marine have been necessary to supply
demands for greater transportation
facilities and en all sides there has
been healthy «nd well sustained progress.
"For the year 1912 there lu a certainty uf an increased impetus along
all lines that make for natural ad-
vancemtnt and we may now look for
a large Influx of settlers as the in
vestment of vast amounts ot capital
in the further developments ot our
natural resources. With thia bright,
prospect in view we may all. with
peace and happiness surrounding us,
enjoy a bright   and   prosperous new

The year just passed has been
notable   one   for   the   residents
Cranbrook and   southeast Kootenay.
The year   1912 will also he very notable to   the residents   of tho Upper
Columbia and Kootenay Valleys.
A number of good reasons are expressed why 1912 will be more notable than years past.
The completion of the Kootenay
Central railway, over eighty miles of
whiftli lias been liullt, and steel laid
will be a strong and important factor In the coming prosperity. While
towns and cities along the Crow's
Nest Branch have become eoltd and
prosperous, It is the settlement, an:l
tbe upbuilding of the vast agricultural resources of the Kootenay Valley
along the line of the Kootenay Central, that will DOW go forward with
great rapidity.
Following the completion of the
K.C.H., there will be a steady increase in the population, nnd the opening up ol much unoccupied land,
and a marked growth In the City of
Cranbrook, towards which city tho
trade of this nowly opened district
wilt cenIro. Among the ranchers
there will he unusual prosperity, and
a constantHiiy increasing market furnished for this produce. With good
crops, a convenient market and fair
prlceH, tho ranchers of this district
will be placed In comfortable clrcura*
utiinees. New people will come into
thu district and general prosperity
will hu Ort)oyod hy all.
The mining Camps will extend and
Improve In keeping with the development of the mini's ,.iid the demand of
good times.
Fruit growing Will become tin lm
purl ant business In these valleys.
(•urge ureas have born cleaiod, und
the New Year will see thousands of
fruit trees set out.' Thu horticulturist wilt become another strong frfit
or in tho development of thin dls
Lumbermen In the Cranluook district are exceedingly pleased with
the conditions which have character-
I'/.oil the work In the woods so far,
and with u duty on rough lumber,
the Indications ain that the lumber
output will excood that of the previous year,
in Oroobrook Olty the outlook (or
tbe coming year is BXCOfidlngly bright.
IJuring the past year mnny large
nnd modern buildings have heen or-
ected. A sewer system commenced
that will cost $76,000, and which Ih
well on towards completion. The
water works By Stem has hern Irnprov
ed and is a strong financial asset to
tho city, real property bus Increased
In value, oul there Is every ovldtncn
of increased activity in the erection
of residential as well as store buildings. Cranbrook ts now the largest
city, and the most prosperous In
East Kootenay.

We believe that the present year,
1912, will be the most prosperout
year over experienced in Southeast
Kootenay. There is every Indication
of activity in the mining industry,
lumbering has assured vast proportions; land in the Kootenay valley,
and city property is being acquired;
and therefore a vast amount of the
very essence of prosperity is likely tc
be disseminated    among    the people.

The nttontlon of capital Is gradual

Confidence and hope has been Install
ed Into the minds ,,f all classes. Peo
[de on  ihe outside    now realize that

of Cranbrook have much occasion fol

are rapidly dissolving, and the light

comes laden with good cheer and tap

We can wish no better thing for all

faithfully carry out the resolution.
Happy New Year! What a blessed

Many Uses for Asbestos
Tho   development of the asbestos
industry in Canada lias led to a not
able increase iu tho Industrial applications of that  material.    It  Is now I
used for sienni  packing, cloth, rope i
and yam making, furnace lining, boi-j
ler covering,  building material    and
electrical Insulation.     About   30,ou') [
tons of asbestos paper are used yeai-1
ly for protection from lire.   Employed j
for ceilings,  together  with  wood ot
metal   lathing,   it   Is  said   lo offer  a
positive barrier to tho passage of firn I
from      one     floor       to       anoUw. I
It its now used for steam pack made !
by passing a Bheet of annealed steel j
ai a high*temperature through a bath
of cement  compound,  which appears
to enter the grain of the metal, and
then   apply ing   pure   asbestos   felt   to
both sidos of the wheel by pressure!

material  resists tire, water, gas ami
sulphur fumes for an hulellulte period
while possessing tbe strength, rigidity and lightness ol" sheet iron.

■ strated beyond question that she is a
teacher of more than ordinary abil
ity and acumen. At intervals
Messrs. Crook and Anderson played
selections on the mandolin and banjo
which were acceptihly received. The
hall was packed and the greatest en

HAVE you ever noticed how few-

Just look at the feet of the
Women.who sit opposite you In the trolley ear .-utile morning when you are riding down town, aud I wager you will
not find mine than one. or at the most
two, out of fifty who have really good-

"Why fa this?" you ask.
Simply because the average woman
takes no thought of her feet, excepting
to u-y in make them Ut Into shoes that
are a also too small, porhapa.
If women would only realize the im-
portance of u pretty foot and ankle,
especially in these days, when short

keen to improve their looks as much as
This Is not hard to do—It only takes a

Wonderful Improvement in the thick
ankles ami heavy, clumsy-looking feet.
In tho first place, when you aro sitting; in a street car or a public plate
where tiie feet show plainly, always
keep them both firmly on tho floor. It
Is a mark of IH'-breedlng to sit with tho
knees crossed or the feet turned sideways with the solo of the shoe plainly
in sight.
To make the ankles slim and graceful,
practice for ten minutes each day twisting the foot around in o rotary motion,
using tho ankle as an axle. Use one foot
at a time for live minutes.
Tho correct way to walk id to let the
iocs strike the floor first and then to
bring the heel down gently. Practice
walking slowly around the room several
times every day, taking each step carefully and all the while holding the body
erect. This not only gives strength and
grace to the foot and ankle, but brings

I AM going to talk today about tho
duties of the hOBtese and the host
at a large afternoon tea ur reccp-
, tlon, If there be a hearty wish to make
every one enjoy his visit, a few ot the
formal detain can soon be mastered.
Flint, let me emphasize, punctuality,
. Never, under any conditions, let the
i Iim guest arrive before you arc fully
prepared to receive.
The position for hostess and host Is
at the right nr the door through
which tho guests enter. Daughters
who are being Introduced to society, or
any special guest of honor, stand beside the hosloaa.
Ah a gue.it eiilers the hostess should
cordially offer her hand, Then should
follow an Introduction to those In line,
if tho guest  bo unknown  to them.
Whon thoro is opportunity a hostess
Nhonld talk a llttlo with the guests
ns lliey appear. This can tie dono
easily at the beginning of a reception.
.When tin- arrivals are more frequent
there will he tlmo f'»r only a brief
greeting ami tpiieU Introductions.
The hostess should Bland at her first
place, and must not desert It even for
food or rest. A guest receiving with
her, however, need not stay so strictly
In the one position.
" Daughters who receive with their
mother should from time to time leave
her side and mingle with the guests.
After perhaps the first hour of receiving' this can be done. They can move
about Ihe room, Introduce guests to one
another, arrange for quick service In
tiie dining room and altogether keep
persons   amused   nnd   comfortable.
A husband stands beside Ids wife
during the greater part of the afternoon offering a cordial hand and greeting, As tiie guests1 arrivals are fewer,
ho may turn his attention to the entertainment. He should introduce, escort ladles to the dining room and bo
every place Hint needs his help. This
Is particularly true of a bridegroom at
hln first reception.
Willi the well-laid plan of receiving
worked out efficiently, half of the work
of an afternoon lea la accomplished, I
shall speak again on this Interesting
In closing today. Irt me omphaslse the
fact thai too large receptions are mistakes. Better It Is lo havo two less
pretentious teas In perfect control than
one large failure, You can do this
possibly with u couple of weeks between, ami. naturally, your lists will
ho made up of different names. In tills
Way there will be no enies, no excitement nnd a generally more successful

are to take a pair of shoes that aro

nalier than a short, wide one. for two

Wonderful Possibilities in  Development
Of Iron Areas
Matter that is of Vital Importance to Canada-What
the Future of this Country Holds Forth
That the iron industry is growing
in Importance throughout Canada
cannot be doubted, At the present
time there are some sixteen blast
furnaces in the Dominion and additional plants are spoken of at Port
Arthur,  Toronto aud Vancouver.
New deposits of valuable ore have
been discovered and it is reasonable
to expect that more valuable and extensive minus will be discovered in
the future in the vast unexplored region ot Canada.
British capital has lately expended
millions of dollars in erecting extensive coke ovens, and additional mills
for the production ol steel at Sault
Ste. Marie and are reserving the total output of the Helen Iron Mine at
Mlchtpicoten for  their own furnaces.
The Heli n Iron Mine has produced
over 1,500,000 tons of excellent ore,
but the mining of iron ore in Ontario haa been and still is on a ver>'
small scale compared with the American side of Lake Superior.
A comparison with the output from
the American    mines    will show  the
It is stated in the Ontario Bureau
of Mines   1908, page   202 as follows :
"There at* the same rock formation
in Northern Ontario as is found throughout the iron ranges of Michigan,
Wisconsin and Minnesota and they
contain the iron series that are in
many cases identical with those associated with the ore bodies of the
American ranges." "Banded jaspei
rnagnitites and hematites occur foi
many hundred miles throughout Northern Ontario and when thoroughly
and intelligently prospected will no
doubt afford many valuable ore bodies. If the Americans are so far a-
head of us in the production of iron
ore, it is because they have spent
more money in the exploration wf one
range alone than has bet-ii expended
in exploring the whole of Northern
Ontario. The Americans realise this
fact themselves, have of late years
spent considerable sums ' of money
prospecting the Ontario ranges. That
success will attend their efforts is
reasonably certain and unless iron
masters rise to the occasion and join
in the search they will be forcod into
the posit.on of Isolated buyers of native ores from American miners.
At the same time we may hn confident that the greater purl of the output from theso prospective mines will
be exported tu the United States ^nd
" smelted in the American furnaces.
There is no other area In tho world
equal to the Lake Superior as n pro
ducer of high grade iron ore. The
only competitor is the Mlnettfl region
of Germany. France and Belgium
, which Is being left rapidly behind.
fn 1870 the United Slates produced
a little over 8,000,000 tons of Iron
The iron mines In the Lake Superior region shipped in 1891, 7,021,466
tons, in 1901, 80,693,537 tons, and
lu 1910, over 4l,()i)i),lllHl tons of Iron
ore. In tint old ranges ol the south
shore 0re Is being mlnod to the depth
ol 2,000 feet Qud very little of the
ore came from near the surface. Up
to the present, these Iron mines ol
lake Superior have shipped ovor 443,.
000,000 tuns of iron ore, worth alont
at thn smelters about   11,750,000,000.
Over 75 per cent, of the iron on
iiBod in Ontario furnaces comes from
tho United States and the percentugi
la steadily increasing The following

"Only a few yearB ago the iron
master on this continent would bard
ly look at an iron ore If it contained
Iron ore worth alone at the smelters
about   $1,750,000,01)1).
Three quarters of the ore reserves
of Minnesota are In the hands of the
United States Steel Co. Not only
must part of the future demands o
thfl United States be mot from On
tario, but the Ontario demand itself
must also be provided for.
"Only a few years ago the ironmaster on this continent would hardly look ftt an Iron ore if it contained
less than 62 per rent of metallic
content; now an ore of 50 per cent.
Is gladly accepted. The question of
the world's supply of iron is of such
grave importance that the International Geological Congress has invited some twenty-six different countries
Canada among the numher, to pre
pare estimates of their respective
iron resources to prenent at their
meeting at Stockholm next Bummer."
"We are and will continue to be Industrially handicapped until our fr0n
Industry is developed sufficiently to
meet the demands of our own conn
try and render us independent of outside sources for tills nil important
metal, what we need Ih not conservation of our iron ore resources but
Vigorous development of our Iron Industry."
In Ontario wo have all tho umial

and limonlto
About 1,500,000 tons of hematite
ore have born produced from the Helen Tron Minn, the largest producer In
Canada. Tho Josephine Iron Mine

of excellent hematite ore averaging
59 per cent, iron content and fret

Algoma Central Railway aud only 21

are extensive deposits of magnetite
ore and of slderlte. Thu Magpu

tains millions of tons of iron ore.
Considerable quantities of ore have
been proven to exist at Steep Rod
and Loon Lake near Port Arthur.
Large mirface deposits of limonitt
ore has been discovered on tbe Mat
tagami River about seventy miles
north of the National Trauscontlnent

The province has produced about
600,000 tons af magnetite principal!)
from tbe Iron Mines of Eastern On

In 1903 a bounty of 815 per ton

produced in Canada to assist the silver lead mine owners of British Columbia. The amount of bounty payable each year was limited to 850G,-

louaties aggregating $067,404, were
paid but these mines of British Columbia during those six years produc-

Think for yourself, consider, investigate, and then buy and the day you
buy credit yourself with from $50.00 to *ioo.oo as that's your first dividend.
This Property is in Calgary's future Great Industrial District and it is far
enough away from the shops to be clear ol the smoke and soot, which you must
admit is a very great advantage.
Another thing, if you have travelled, perhaps ycu have observed that the
property immediately surrounding large manufacturing plants, is generally occupied
bv the poorly paid foreign clement, while the mechanics and better class of labor
live a mile or two away. Go to Winnipeg arid look around the Shops there,
the scene is exactly as described above.
We want you to investigate and then you will know that our property re-,
presents an honest and sincere proposition which will enable you to get your share
of the tremendous profits that will naturally follow such immense developments.
Look this up for yourself and remember that ail plans are approved and
passed by the Provincial Government of Alberta. Buy now, and the energy
and brains of the big Capitalists will help to increase the value of your buy.
They are spending millions and you may reap a share of their profits.
This Coupon and Thirteen Dollars ($13.00), will make
your first payment on one of our South East Calgary lots.
Bring it with you.
