CRANBROOK,   B.C.,   SATURBflY,    DECEMBER   Hi.   190S.
No. o,
Fleet Indian runs Dor-
undo, the Italian,oft
his tccl
Nuw York,, Ihr. l"i As on tin- mc
mumble occasion of his tirsi olympiad, Dorando Plotrl collapsed within
sight of tlio gout tonight, mnl Tom
Longboat, the Indian runner, whu
had been led by ;i yard oi moro nearly all the way won tho Marathon race
ut Madison Square ga-rden.
Tiie race was hard fought from the-
start   to   thu finish, und kept     the
thousands of spectators  In  wild  ex- .
eitement.   At 25 miles   Uorundo was
leading by two yards,   A moment be- •■
fore Longboat had     made a remarkable spurt and put himself on nn even
footing with the little Italian,   Dor-
nndo immediately regained first position n-nd the men were fighting it uut
In the 26th mile, with Dorando in the :
lead, but visibly weaker.
The chances of Longboat appeared
to improve     in the second and third
laps,   ln    the     third  lap,  while the
crowd wus crying Itself hoarse, both j
men slackened perceptibly. Then slid- j
denly     Doro-ndo staggered nnd drop- j
ped.   Longboat  finished  alone,     His ■
time for the distance of -•> miles 385 |
yards wus 2,45:05 2-5.
The time wus 35 2-5 seconds slower j
than the Marathon murk established ,
by Dorando when lie defeated Huyes j
on the sume track three weeks ago.   I
It was a greuelling race for nearly '
25i miles, with the Italian generally !
in the lead, but occasionally over- I
hauled by o wonderful sprint by the I
The   men   started awuy at a brisk
clip,   Dorando     a;t once establishing
himself in the lend,.  Longboat     had '
won the pole position and pushed the (
other so hard in the tirst few minutes j
of tlio race     that ut thc end of the i
five miles thc  Dorando-Hayes record
for the distance bad iietn beaten   by
nearly   a     minute.   Later     the men j
slowed up and fur many miles    they [
kept in the sume relative positions in i
slower time.   Then  Longboat spurted
and repeated these tactics until     he
had  plainly  evident effect  upon    thc
Dorando nevertheless held the    advantage until the last lap of the Mth
mile when     Longboat took thc lead
and   increased the pace a little.     He
finished the 14 miles one minute and
Its 2-5 seconds   ahead of the Dorando- '
Hayes    record.     Longboat's     efforts1
proved to be spasmodic nnd Dorando
easily passed him in the L6th mile.
Longboat     showed signs of fatigue
in the 17th mile, but kept on dogged- f
ly    within     striking distance of thei
Italian.   In the    20th mile Longboat
shot ahead nnd dropped into a natural lope whicli kept him in the     lend
for live     laps.   Then Dorando.   amid
Wild cheers, forged ahead. Agnin    in
the 23rd mile the Indian mude a sen- i
sationul     sprint and gained the lead. ;
In the     second lap of the 24th mile J
Dorando regained his advantage,  Doth !
men  then  moved   more slowly     und
showed weakness.
In the beginning ol the 2Cth mile
Longboat sprinted n-nd tho Italian
went to the rear. In the middle of
the mile and when a quarter of a lap !
behind Dorando toll to tho truck and ;
it was necessary to pick him up and >
carry him to his dressing room.

^■'       RAZOR
Will Last a Lifetime.
CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS have revolutionized mot making they are TEMPERED BV ELECTRICITY, which Is
OUR OWN EXCLUSIVE SECRET PROCESS the steel used in their manufacture is of the finest English and
Swedish make. This wonderful discovery is the result ol years of experiment and study, and at last there has been
produced a razor that will shave any beard, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH.
ELECTRIC TEMPERING adds CARBON to the steel; whereas tempering by fire, (the onlf other method known for
centuries) DESTROYS the CARBON which is the life of steel. All other makes of razors must be HONED AND GROUND
olten, as their blades will NOT hold an edge any length of time. CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS do not require HONING
or GRINDING during a lifetime in private usej they are all tempered alike, every part of their blades being subjected to
METHOD, the most expensive grinding known.
VOUR DEALER will deliver to you one of these CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS on 30 days' trial, without
obligation on your part to purchase—take advantage of this opportunity. Break away Irom the barber habit 1 You will save
.$50 (II) annually.
Call on our representatives in your town, and request a copy ol "Hints On Shaving" This booklet illustrates the
correct razor position lor shaving every part of the face (ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN FROM LIFE) it also tells

Depart ment
In lust week's Issue some attention
wus given to the study o- the chemical composition of soils. It is hoped
that our renders are following these
notes with consecutive interest and
are storing away in their minds for
future use the points ol value regarding the character ol the soil, that
they may be able to apply tho know
ledge gained in turning the wealth ot
their own soils to practical account.
In the present Instance the diflerences
between soluble und Insoluble Ingred
lents will be explained.
If a quantity of soil bo soaked In
water and thoroughly mixed und stirred up tor some time a small amount
of soluble salts will be dissolved nut.
If this water is then filtered oft and
evaporated to dryness the saline mat
ter present will show itself as n
small quantity ol white crystalline
PpWdor. This powder Is the soluble
part of the soil and the remainder is
the insoluble. The soluble part forms
a very small portion of the wh0lc,
seldom reaching as much a,s a quarter of one per cent, of tho total, although this small quantity amounts
to n very great deul nn an acre ur in
u Held. An inch In depth of soil
equals over 10U tuns per acre; therefore it follows thut In every in h in
depth there muy be us much us live
hundredweight (,f this soluble material, or ubout two tuns per acre in
the tlrst eight inches of depth. A soil
muy be ever su rich In plant food,
yet should the ingredients be insoluble the ordinary plants cannot readily feed upun them. Tbe soluble material is the immediate mineral food
of tbe plants or crops growing on the
soil, und it is mainly because of its
limited a-mount thnt we require to
help the crops by applying manures.
There is another Important fact in
this connection that should not be
forgotten. As has been stated previously, the acid reaction of the living
roots enables them to dissolve oul
some more mutter fur their own direct use, su thut probably twice tbe
quantity of the food material in a
soluble form is at the service of the
crops. This acid reaction is calculated as equal to a one per cent, solution uf citric acid, and therefore if
the soil in the foregoing test after
being tren-tcd with water is also
treated with a one per edit, solution
of citric acid the resultant saline
mutter obtained will present roughly
whut is really available f,,r plant
food. The action of ull the weather
ing und other agents which help to
originally form the soil continues to
set free further portions of soluble
material as the years go on, but the
total soluble constituents remain fairly constant. In an ordinary chemical
analysis a strong acid .uch us hydrochloric -is used to dissolve the
materials, and in this wuy soluble
mutter may be obtained up to six,
eight or ten per cent,, the remainder
being insoluble sand or clay, forming
the bulk of the soil, but never supplying food for plants. Agricultural
chemists usually treat the soil with
a two per cent, solutb n of citric
acid, so ns to test whut is actually
available to the plant runts. The saline matter they secure is composed
for the most part of chlorides and
sulphates of lime and soda.
Repeat it, "Shiloh's Cure will always   cure   my   coughs   and   colds."
The ruilway commission has un older out which stipulates that where
freight cars are used on main Iin-
trains they must be equipped with
ii'ir brakes, steel tires und metal
trucks designed for passenger service,
Where these requirements are not
complied with on account of exertional circumstance.-, trains must nut
be run at more than 35 miles nn
It is expected that by the 20th of
the present month the compressor on
the Aurora property will be working
und tbe machine drills will he in use.
The boiler inspect0r will be here next
week. The Aurora promises tn make
u record fnr itself this winter.-Moyie

his customers much bettor attention
than when rushed nil his leet during

Ity to examine a copy. Just send a
few copies to your friends, you may
depend on it, that those to whom
ymi send the Prospector will be more
than gratoful to you, as they read
each succeeding issue.
We strongly advise people to do
their Christmas shopping early. There
are many reasons for this, the strong
est being thut better selections can
be made, more time spent on making
a choice, a,nd the merchant, can give
his customers much better attention
than when rushed off his foot during
fhe few days preceding Christina^.
