Our Birthday Present
The "Prospector" ln celebrating ita 18th birthday wishes to give Its
subscribers something lor nothing. For our special coronation number
we printed some 3,020 papers, we want our subscribers to tell us Just
how many were sent out of the office.
To the man, woman or child giving the nearest correct number we
will give aa a birthday gilt
The only condition attached Is that you must be a subscriber to   the
"Proapector." ___________
The "Proapector" feels Jubilant this week because lt is ce'ebra.lng
Its 18th birthday. Born ln Fort Steele on the 9th of November, 1894.
under the editorship of A. B. Grace, pioneering the country in ita flrst
opening stages of progress aa the flrst newspaper published In Southeastern British Columbia, the "proapector" has, even through some very
dark days ol Its history succeeded ln turning out every edition without
missing a single Issue. We are proud to state that in tbe whole ol British Columbia there are only seven papers that can claim to have t*en
in existence longer than the Prospector.
The "Prospector" was the Bret paper ln the province to advocate
building the Crow's Nest line, called as it then was on paper "The B.C.
Southern Railway."
Fort Steele at the time was the only town in the Kootenays and was
naturally pronl to claim the title ot being the "Capital ol the Kootenays."
Fort Steele had only seven bouses at this time, being the centre of
a population of some 300 hundred Inhabitants. The mail arriving but
once in two weeks and came ln via Golden.
From such a small beginning tbe 'Prospector" began its career and
from serving such a small circle It has continued its ups and downs
until tt stands aa the most popular paper ln the aame district lt began
ln, supplying reading matter to a population of some 25,000 people and
continuing to prove itself more tha*. ever an important factor in the
upbuilding of South east Kootenay.

Public Library for Cranbrook
Books Missing and Found
We learn that Hill ft Co. has disposed of bis dry goods and millinery
business to Mr. Walter Holstead who
waa formerly an employee of the firm
Stocktaking Is now going on preparatory to making the tranrfor. Tbe
Prospector wlll give further details
1b it* nnt Uau.
Impressed by the numerous young
and middle-aged men who, having to
stand oil Irom their work owing to
the intense cold ot these last tew
days, we made enquiries of a good
many as to what they would do lt
the cold continued. The reply ul
the majority was that all they
would have to do was idle their time
away but wished there was a library
to alt in; because with nothing else
to do they could acquire Information
and improve their education In these
spare momenta,
The request being so general It
gave us lood for reflection and so we
took the matter up with some of
our prominent citizens and learned
of a library that used to bs in existence a low yeara ago. Through one
cause or another the interest gave
out and the 97 books that were donated to the library by the provincial government was stowed away in
some old cases in Mighton's Hall.
Since that time political, religious,
union and every kind of meetings
bave been held In these rooms and
just one and then another haB looked these books over. Many fovnd
them so Interesting they took them
home and put tbem away among
their own books and forgot until today, there are only thirty-seven
books that can be accounted for
leaving a total ot sixty missing.
Now if these sixty books could see
daylight again and put along side ot
tbe thirty-seven that we at present
know of, they would form the neuclus
of a splendid library. We believe a
public library la necessary In Oranbrook and the "Prospector" is going
to work until one can be arranged
lor. We hava heen to considerable
trouble to And all the titles to the
various books. Below we give a
complete list of the titles as they
were sent to Oranbrook by tba Provincial Government at the asm* tim»

St John's Ambulance Corps
The bi-weekly meeting at tbe Literary and Debating Society Department ol the "Y" took place on Wad.
nesday evening. November 8th. Tba
attendance suffered somewhat (ram a
number ol local attractions happening on the same data, but those present spent an Interesting and instructive hour watching a demonstration
of first aid work by tbe boys of tha
C.P.R. branch of St. John'a Ambulance Association.
The proceedings, which were under
the direction of Vice-Captain W. R.
Gibbs, Included a demonstration ol
quick methods ol first aid as applied
for fractured limbs, and bandaging
to stop the flow of blood ln cases ol
severe flesh wounds, and from the
way ln which the C.P.R. corps bandied the various items lt was quit*
evident that they knew what they
were doing and Irom the replies thsy
gave to queries, why they ware doing it.
Tbe corps comprises eight man all
ol whom bold certificates of competency and during the year of their
existence tbey have rendered valuable aid ln quite a number ol accident
cases ln the shops, in many eases
tbeir skill being ol such an order
as to render medical attention unnecessary.
Every credit is due to tbs corps
lor the businesslike demonstration
they gave at the "Y" on Wedneaday
representing as It undoubtedly uid, a
good deal ol faithful practice. Wa
hope that their aervleea may never
be requisitioned tor anything mor*
serious than minor accidents, but
sbould a serloua wreck ever occur on
tb* Crow, their aid to tb* medical
stall would hs invaluable.
We wish thsm continued suae ess

may qualify for competition for ***

Orange Association had been holding
public meetings wherever possible,
and had been explaining to the people the principles for winch thn (society stood, and the necessity for its
existence in the Dominion of Canada.
The order had nothing to lose by
this campaign of publicity, because
its principles were such as would
command the respect of every true
Protestant and loyal British subject.
The association stood not only a-
irainst the interference of the Roman
Catholic church in political affairs ,
anl in favor of "Equal rit-hts to
all, nnd special privileges to none;"
but it also stood for the maintenance of Canada as part of the British

A feature of the company this season is the Royal Hungarian Quartette, an aggregation of musicians who
were originally brought out to New
York, by Henry W. Savage, for his
' 'Merry Widow" company. They
have never before been heard in Canada, and tbey are pronounced by
all to be the best string orchestra
ever heard here. They play on native instruments, called "Tamborlt-

The Editor Tho Prospector,
Dear Sir :—
I wish to call the attention of
your readers to a state of affairs
which I think worthy of consideration. Owing to the fact that many
people have taken up small ranches
within a radius of three miles of our
town, and that more or less children
are attending school from these places. I think something should be
done during the coming cold weather
to make provisions whereby these
children could obtain a hot bowl of
soup, or cup of cocoa with their
noon meal, which would have the effect to some extent of protecting
them against the result of damp feet
and the long cold walk to which they
are exposed on their homeward journey. I feel sure that. If some of
the Indies' societies in town would
take hold of this matter they would
accomplish something which would be
deeply appieciated and ia which they
woit'd have tho hearty co-operation
of the citizens of Cranbrook.
Yours truly,

THIS  In  the  parablo
of thn  two   bro-
y there.
Once there were two brothers,
Iliey woro farmers, and thoy went
Unto thn western country and
tilled lho coll. The ono brother wan ambitious, and dreamt
■dream.-* of hlg crop,?, but tlie other
brother waa content to go his way.
Hut by and by a lime of drought
■oamo o'er the laud and the cropa
wero bad. Ami then the brother
who was ambltlout glided up hla

City where men congregated, nnd
tthere he took counsel of ell those'
Hiio were well versed In the art of
powing and reaping, and Jo, whon
lie dad sowed and reaped, hie darns
•were full to overflowing, while
tlioso of hie brotlier were empty
and barren.
That Is the Atory or the two brothers, but lt Lh also the atory of
thousand* ot others In the Cnn*
adian  wheat  fields,   For  the  luM
ComelMng spectacular. Thnt -Is
how tho advocates of scientific
farming came to ride In railway
The Canadian PaclflO Railway In-
the pioneer road ln connoctlon with
the running of these trains,nnd has
been very successful In tho results
obtained. There are sumo who ore
wont to complain that this methjtl
of reaching tho fanner.** is too expensive, hut when It Is considered
that if tho train Is only tho means
of adding one bushel per acre to
the average grain yield of tho West,
Uie expenditure IS warranted. Add
one bushel per aero to the yield
from all tho millions of acres under cultivation In tho prairie provinces of Canada and you will get
h money result that would pay for
many trains at the present rate
per  day.
It was in 1900 thnt the first Cari-
ad-Iun Pacific Raillwwy Special
Train preached the gospel of farming to tho Canadian land tillers.
In tiie spring of that ytar tho far-
ITW-WninS Jo a   I
ten or fifteen years the peoplo of ell
tuitions have been pouring Into the
Dominion at the rate of thousands
a month. From tho east and from
iiH. clime!i. Most of them havo
settled In tho western wheatflelds,
In the last great farm land of the
world, ond It Is only natural that
With .such a cosmopolitan Influx
there should como into the country
many different methods of tilling
the soil. As In all cases there Is
« right way and a wrong way for
doing everything ami farming Is
no exception to the general rule.
Of course foreign methods may be
nil righ' In foreign countries, but
climatic and soil conditions need
•varying treatment and these methods bring litllo credit when applied
to countries whleh-mre not suitable
tor them.
Tho Whole Idea of successful
commercial farming ls to get as
much return as possible Trom the
soil -kcIi year, wt a flinnll cost,
itnd without endangering future
crop?. It Is evident that If tho
1.0.I Is consistently robbed of its
frrttifty each year that crops wlll
■uffcr accordingly during the sue-
••coding seasons. Soil like everything elso can ho overworked ond
ao lose Ita productiveness, and
white tho farmer may, without
fcimwledgo of scientific principle*,
cultlvntt* his land with somo fair
♦legree of success, lie cannot but
exhaust the productiveness of the
wail tcforo many seasons. "The
old order changeth." Scientific
management !s the cry In all walks
*)t ur.v and whon tin*, matter Ls considered it Is seen that the farmer
rei tl* it perhaps even more than
#nv other business.
That was why It was decided that tho farmer must be educated to ft '.em.o nf his lvspoiyrlblll-
11 *■**•■, to) a realisation that tho sol*
•ntlflc. cultivation of his crops was
csiientlnl. Once that, conclusion
was arrived nt, the men behind the
movement began to look about for
the, best method of presenting thcie
facts to the farmer with the result
♦.hat gradually there wero evolve!
the "Agricultural Special Trains'*
$i<v scientific Instruction,
When it was first decided to «du-
te.o tlie farmers of Western Canada, the Agricultural Colleges stated that they would co-operate with
lli* Canadian Pacific Railway ln
the work. They did. They ls-
[sued bulletins by tho score, pointing out to the communities the best
method* ta be followed In caring
for and cultivating the crops.
/Thess bulletins did a lot of rood.
/They at least prepared lhe way for
"Btf Idea." However, they were
not the success that was hoped for,
largely because that -personal els-
Went? which ls always necessary
tm the promotion of a new movement, was lacking, and so tho plan
mnn d'scarded. Then the colleges
fried institutes and short cours&s,
tint  -.till  without the *Jsau»* —
J**    ll "^ iomjlWaf "»«•
mors were out working in their
fields when tho first whistle of the :
first "Farm Train" founded across j
the prairie belt. It was with considerable anxiety that the professors wateiied for the first stop. It
was a new idea and it takes a
great deal to make a farmer desert
Ida crops on n bright, sunshiny day.
Even a circus won't make them do
It. The fear.*, wore groundless,
however, for 'lho platform was
crowded. Tlie train was hardly
stopped before the Westerners began to crowd Into the cars. Tho
train 'had been well heraided in
advance and the farmers wanted
to know what to do and how to do
Jt. That fust train whs necessarily on experiment, but as experiments go It was one of the
most successful thai has ever made
pood on its first trial. The train
wus a seed  train,  tha Idea being
Also delivered an many subjects
relating to the heme, including the

ngement of the laundry, germ life
Jn the home and water for domestic purposes.
■ A palace stock car contained representative specimens of cattle
(heef and dairy), sheep and, swine,
and poultry. Horses were aecurcd
nt local points. Lessons were given
In the selection, Judging, breeding
nnd management of these animals,
and poultry, special emphasis being placed on their economical production.
Another car contained a variety

growing of small fruits and tho
beautifying of the farm house.
Specimens of Insect.:. Injurious to
farm crops were also shown and
methods  of killing  them  outlined.
Thero Is no doubt ubout tlie value
of these trains, Any figures that
could be given In this connection
would nt lho vory best glyo a very
Inadequate Idea of the results, but
ft Is a fact lhat nearly every farmer who attended lho locture*
made some permanent and lasting
change In Ills method of running
the farm. This came as *i direct
result of the visit of tbo agricultural train.
As a method of studying human
nature, tho tour could hardly have
been equalled. It waa an education in Itself to watch thc crowds
rUtrat filled these cars day ffter
day as tho train mado its *rlow way
across tlio prairies. Old men bent
with years of toil sat ride by side
(With strong limbed newcomers but
lately •reached their majority.
Wives and daughters crowded Into
the dairy cars and Indian children
from the (Jovernment schools mingled wtth the children of the other
races, ond listened to tho lectures
on the bird and animal life of the
province. And It was a wonder,
too, tho attention -riven the lecturers. In plain, lucid terms the professors explained to their audiences
the value of good seed corn, of the
best mothods of lighting tho diseases prevalent among cattlo. Very
few of the farmers took notes, but
it was evident that llttlo escaped
litem. If they dldtft undersWTid
nny particular point about tho subject under discussion they asked
about It, and then tho matter was)
explained all over again until they,

Fire Destroys Building at Nakusp
Nakusp, B.C.—A destructive and
most mysterious fire started in a
railway warehouse owned by Thomas
Abrlel, this morning at seven o'clock
completely wiping out the building
and its contents, consisting of hay,
canned goods, etc., and resulting in
a Iosb of about $1,000. It is understood there is no insurance.
At five minutes to sovon, a dozen
or more workmen   passed tho structure over its own platform, observing nothing wrong, and within   ton
| minutes   a   huge    volume of flames
j wore noticed   within   and a moment
I later they burst through tho    roof,

not expect to see all the troubles of
his province immediately eliminated,
but expected an Intelligent attempt
to bo made by thc federal authorities

Chatter and Chaff
Earnest and Facetious
Love—that la the love that litterateurs eulogise upon, ls a very imaginary article, I assu-e you. In lact
It makes me sometimes seriously
doubt the sanity ot those whom the
world calls "masterminds." Those
who have been unfortunate enough
to have even a very small experience ol the common article will only
be too painfully cognizant of the
fact that love—such as these mighty
smutterers of a blotting-pad write
about—is but a mere hallucination ot
a disordered brain. Tbe ideal heroines—those angelic creatures ot poetic
manufacture—are, in my estimation,
a set ot unreal beings. They (the
authors descant on forms which they
term "slender, sweet, divine," and I
am naturally disappointed to discover that their veracity is extremely
unreliable—or can lt be that they see
them ln an entirely different light to
myself—that of a mere plaything tor
the eccentricies ot fashion 7
They tell us of moit'hs small and
beautifully expressive—or, in their
own words, "a ruby casket lor pearly treasures,"—which is a BUre token
that they have never been lavoured
with a sight ot an ordinary female—
on her periodical washing-day, when
with remarkable ease and dexterity,
she will ram a good dozen wooden
pegs into her month and still Snd
room for an end ot the clothes line :
or, even the-sight of an average woman at a strawberry gathering. Expressive tbey may be then—but it is
expressive of lnsattety: In tbe latter
instance they may also be ruby, but
lt is with tbe hue that tells of the
doom of innumerable strawberries.
I read ol damask cheeks with delicate tints like tbe velvety skin of
the peach and always associate the
simile with vague thoughts ol cosmetics. I read ot tiny feet ol exquisite grace,' and mentally wonder
It females are tree Irom the infliction
of bunions. In every thing I take
up be lt what it may, I am invariably favored with a wonderful description ot an heroine with the orthodox rippling wealth ol golden
balr that immediately conjures up
visions ol curling tongs and curlpapers. Again I am continually
tortured with the repetition ol a
"shell-like ear"—a term that appears
almost as frequently as the stereotyped "to be continued" and I can
not help but think that the chap
who Just Invented that expression
and the one who just began to rave
ot Grecian noses, etc., must have
been verging on the brink ot imbecility.	
The latter especially,—surely he
bad never seen the highly edifying
sight of a maiden on a frosty morning, when her sneezing apparatus,
otherwise her nasal organ, glows
like a physician's lamp In a yellow
fog? Tbey wax so extraordinary enthusiastic upon tbe subject of love
and women, that I am inclined to
look upon all authors as bachelors,
and vowed to celibacy, for once
caught within the meshes of Hymen
thsy would never write such bcnti-
mentnl bosh. They are paragon
perverters, these quill-wielding minions, who must view the world with
unseeing eyes, or through a pair ot
dollar folders.
We all admire heroism In any
shape or form; although, probably,
spectacular feats of valor appeal to
us most by reason of their soul-atlr-
rlng qualities. Notwithstanding
this, we sbould not underestimate
those unostentatious caBes af heroic
self-sacrifice appertaining primarily
to the home circle. Tbe Instance—
which occurred recently—of the brave
Nova Hcotin girl, who was fatally
hurt whilst endeavoring to save her
aged mother is a specially noteworthy example. Mrs. Rowe ot Port
Williams, eigbty years old waa in
the kitchen when her clothes became
Ignited by a spark Irom the stove.
Her daughter, slater of Dr. John T.
Rowe; ran to her mother's assistance
hastily wrapping her In a piece of
carpet. In doing this tho young
woman's own clothing took fire. The
cynical pessimistic people who delight in telling us that there are no
heroes nowadays; would do well to
reflect on this unmistakable refutation of their contention.
Referring to thc desirability ol a
collegiate training and thc Importance ot thorough Instruction un a preparation for professional technical,
or artistic pursuits. It is, I candidly admit, very praiseworthy of parents to endeavor to bestow upon
their children a superior education to
what they themselves have received ;
but much unhapplness and abject
misery are the consequences, in wblch
both parties must necessarily participate, lf the point be stretched beyond the limits of reason. The
children, owing to the adoption of
this mode of procedure, get inflated
with self-sufficiency, despise menial
labor and sometimes even sponge on
their indulgent parents. An Inherent
craving to move in higher social circles takes possession of them, and
as they have not enough means, in
many instances, to gratify their
numerous wishes, discontent forthwith sets in. Every dollar they are
able to scrape tip goes in providing
adornments for their lackadaisical,
persons. They not Infrequently
make the acquaintance of vicious
companions, and ruin is assured;
they being thoroughly aware that
the world at large values merely the
elaborately gilded exterior.

During the past twenty-live years,
the progress of literature has been so
great and owing to tbe nominal
price of books, ready means of acquiring intellectual knowledge is
brought within the reach of the humblest. At tbe present day, to recommend literature as a Btudy Is altogether unnecessary; the general
voice of mankind Is In Its favor. Almost every member ol tbe community
who has sufficient discernment to appreciate wbat ls read.—realizes that
a library Is one of the greatest luxuries which a rational person can en-
Joy. Literature, in its comprehensive sense, Includes knowledge in
general, and, as knowledge is the
food which nourishes the mental,
moral, and spiritual faculties,—
knowledge may he defined as power.
The principal object of all learning
ls, in reality, the desire to perfect
the development of the human mind,
to eorrectly train all the faculties—
which the student possesses. No
single individual can possibly attain
to the fullest porlectlon of every
faculty. None rise to the highest
pitch ot excellence, hut everyone is
capable of deriving a cortaln amount
of benefit from sn Intelligent training.
Literature, both poetry and proso,
but especially the former, to be
thoroughly known, loved, and valued
must be rend aloud over and over
again, lt Is useless to merely scan a
poetic composition, that Ib not
studying literature, tbc student must
enter   into   It heart,   and   soul, he
must feel what he reads;—with anxious effort to combine an embodiment
In tone and gesture, of the author's
meaning. If the student wishes to
succeed In the study, bis seneoo
Bhould be touched, he must feel what
he reads became the emotionally
beautiful excites hla love and admiration;—he must be enthusiastic. The
Greeks were the fathers of poetry,
literature, philosophy, and arts.
Those who would gain the full
benefit of the study of literature
should not confine themselves to
prosaic, or poetical compositions,
tbey should study history. Kvery
tbougbtful student of history Boeks
to know not only what men have
done, but what tbey bave thought
and felt. It is through the study of
literature that one becomes intimate
with the best thinkers,—he is
brought In contact with men ot the
moBt vivid nature; men possessed of
the moBt active creative faculty, and
tbe most perfectly developed power of
Apropos the recent unveiling of the
Farnell Monument in Dublin, it is
exceedingly sad that Anna Farnell,
sister of the great Irish Leader
(who shares with O'Oonnell, the Liberator, tbe crown of Immortality)
did not live to witness this glorious
demonstration of Ireland's gratitude
towards her beloved son, whom we
know zealously guarded his country's
welfare, as only a true patriot can.
It will be remembered that tho distinguished aforementioned lady was
drowned in the west ot England a
few weeks ago. Keenly Interested in
national politics, and an active participator ln tbe Home Rule movement, this gifted orator and writer
nssisted her brother materially by
example and precept. Owing to her
untimely death, tbe sons and dsught
ers of Erin have lost a loyal friend.
Possessing a tender heart and gentle
nature sbe exhibited a truly genuine
christian spirit for the Irish race,
whom she dearly loved. A deep-
read scholar In all tnat appertains
to political Bclence and tbe administration of government, her eloquent
voice and facile pen wore never silent in proclaiming the miseries of
Ireland, and espousing tbo causo of
the helpless and weak.

Kitchener's Farewell to the

Lord Kitchener's departure from
England to take up one of the most
onerous posts in the Hritish Empire
was quite characteristic and in keeping with all tbat he has ever done
betore. There was an entire absence
of pomp or formality—chiefly, one
lelt, because Lord Kitchener had discouraged any such Idea—and he left
to tako up his new work like any
other servant of the Crown, with no
official personages of any kind to bid
blm farewell. It is true, Indeed,
that a company ot Boy Scouts was
on the platform to see their her0 off
on his journey, but the tew paternal
words Lord Kitchener addressed to
them before he entered bis carriage

of people wbo were departing on long
journeys overseas, and with their
friends who bad come to wish them
Godspeed. Quite a 'ot of tears were
shed in the process, and at first people were bo busy with tbeir own affairs that the presence ot the tall
soldier in their midst passed quite
unnoticed. It wsb tbe arrival of
the Boy Scouts which first drew the
attention of the crowd to his presence. The scouts belonging to the 1st
North London Troop, drew up before
Lord Kitchener's carriage about 20
minutes before the train left, and the
tall field-marshal stepped out on the
platform, and, towering above tbe
youth of England fired with military
ardor, reviewed them witb tbe greatest seriousness and gravity. Then
he mnde.a brief speech, which was
quite suited to the occasion. "All
of you work hard while I am away,
and keep tbo Hcout Law," he said.
"When 1 conic back I ahall expect to
nee you down at llroomo again, and
1 hope wo shall bavo Nome more sport
with tho rabbits. I am very glad
to sec you, snd wish you good-bye."
Whereupon tho Hciiuts stuck their
lints on their poles nnd gave three
hearty cheers, which brought all the
imoplo on the platform crowding
The scouts had recently been In
camp for a week In Broome Park,
near Canterbury, Lord Kitchener's
residence. His Lordship Is president of this troop, and the boys bad
insisted on coming to aee him off—
tho only concession to sentiment tbat
Lord Kitchener had mada on the oc
casion of his departure. His reference to rabbits recalled thc exploits
of the boys In Broome Park, wbo,
putting tbeir knowledge of woodcraft
to practical use, bad during tbe weak
caught and cooked some sixty or
mors. After re-entering bis carriage
Lord Kitchener called up Scoutmasters Lankeeter and Mclnnes, and bad
a briel chat with them on the sub.
Ject ot scouting and also congratulated one of ths boys on having won a
price in a scouting competition which
Lord Kitchener himself had promoted.
There waa a big cheer as tbe train
rolled out ol the station, the scouts
singing "For he's a Jolly good fellow." and ths ordinary people on
tbe platform waving their hats and
giving three times three. It waa a
distracting moment for some ol the
people who bad come to aay good-by
to their departing friends, and their
attention was very much divided at
tbe last moment. Lord Kitchener
waa accompanied by Captain Fitzgerald, and by a valet, who had the
field marshal'a two favorite spaniels
on a lead. At the docks station
Lord Kitchener picked hia way
through the piles of luggage and the
crowds ot chattering lascara, and
walking through the large gloomy
shed, reached the dock side, where be
found a whole battery of photographers and cinematograph operators
drawn up near the gangway under
tbe side ol the Nubia. As be approached the gangway he realized
that he was In for It, and ao, making tbe best of the circumstances, be
turned and smiled wben balf-way up
the gangway, and gave the photographers and moving picture men a 'fair
shot.' Immediately on reaching the
deck be went below. The photographers waited anxiously at the dock
side, hoping to get a last farewell
plcttre of him on tbe dick of the
ship. But the bell rang and all
friends bad left tbe ship, and ths
distinguished traveller did not appear. Just as tbe Nubia was being
warped out Into the dock, however,
a tall figure appeared and walked to
tbe end of the promenade deck, lean*
Ing on tbe rails lor a lew moments.
There was a cheer Irom the dock-side
and a rapid fire of cameras at long
range, and then Lord Kitchener disappeared again amongst the crowd ol
passengers who were waving farewell
to tbeir trlenda on shore. To a
cloud ol fluttering handkerchiefs the
Nubia slowly drifted out of dock,
taking "K. of K." to his nsw work
In that land where he began, twenty
years ago, to make a name that ia
now world famous. THE PROSPECTOB, CRANHROOK, fl. t

in hie histojy of the aeroplane was tho
recent ftlglil of Harry N. Atwood from
St. Louis to New York. The trip was
without mishap; nluiosl without Incident: on one occasion only was tho
aviator obliged to alight sooner than
was expected, some babbiting having
to bo renewed. Tho other repairs
wow of u trifling nature. The machine was oiled an.'l some gOfiOlino was
poured iu it; Atwood sealed himself,
tind the biplane soared Into the aic
tlko a bird, and did net alight until the
uoxi aiTtiuged-for stopping place was
reached. The aviator tells nr, ihat on
sonic of tho f.ights he felt like going
to sleep. On others he says that most
nf the tlmti ho kept his hands In his
pockets, or read a llme-lable—"the
air was like :-, pool." The trip ought
to give us a new idea of the aeroplane.
It helps bring it nui of ihe circus class

In-cMottt.. Atwood flew 1,266 miles
ln 12 day.s. An ordinary bycfclttst
might nave made better time, but Atwood was not trj'lng to beat speed records. As n matter of fact, he waa
oity im tho wing 2S hours 1- minutes,
so that bts average time was ahout 4"»
miles mi hour. Then1 Is no reason to
doubt that, he could have mado tho
journey in a couple of days had speed
been his object. Atwood wanted to
prove that tho aeroplane could bo used much as Uie automobile Is used for
touring purposes. Before he started
his course was mapped out. Uo decided 10 fly so many miles nnd then
slop at a certain city for dinner or
lunch, to proceed, and roachlrig another city at such a time, have another men!., and remain for the night.
This Is the sort of programme that
tests the retinbi'ity of machines, whether they are automobiles ar aero*
planes. '**hk* is the test thnt Atwood
has so successfully emerged from.

The body or chassis, is tho frame
work and supporting apparatus which
contains the motor and propeller, nnd
16 which are attached the wings and
supporting surfaces and (ho wheels

runs when starling or rests when

a separate car with roller wheels
which runs upon a truck, mid is left

glides along upon the ground upon
runners which soon cheek 11.^ speed.
The Farniun machine has both wheels
and runners.
The most characteristic feature of
an aeroplane and the one that reveals
tho Ingenuity of the inventor more
than any other single element in its
construction, is the method of control.
This is the point ut which tho machine becomes human. As the bridle
reins convoy lbe will of tbo I'ider to
his steed, the master of tbe aeropVane
causes It to obey his slightest wish
almost as bo would raise bis foot
or extend his hand. This is done by
means of the delicate and extremely
sensitive levers nnd wires which connect the rudders nnd balancing planes

cattle and camels feed on tbe leaves
and goats will stand on their hind
legs to reach them, but horses and
mules rofuso. to touch tbem. The
wood ts very hard and extremely useful to the native.!, who make char coal
from it. Tho fruit, resembling a lurge
olive, is used to feed cattle and also
* furnishes the principle sustenance of
many of tho poorer natives.

more good, and, to my delight, before j
I had been using Zam-Hub three weeks
saw tbat it was going tn heal tbo
sore, lu less than a month H was
healed! I
know n lady In tho east of tbe |
city, whose husband suffered for years
Willi nn open sore on his leg. On my j
recommendation Zam-Buk was tried in
tlmt caso, Tito other day. when I saw
her, she told nie that it had healed the
sore completely.
"My daughter, who lives in
[..•ihbridge, Altn., has also used '/.am-
Hiik with the same satisfactory result.
I think it is, beyond nil doubt, the finest healing balm known."
Such Is tiie opinion of all persons
who have really tried Zam-Buk. It Is
a sure cure for eczema, piles, abscesses, ulcers, scalp sores, ringworm,
cuts, burns, scalds, bruises, and all
skin. injuries and diseases. BQc
box, nil druggists and stores, or post
free from Zam-llul. Co., Toronto, for

also Zum-Buk Soap, 2Bo. tablet.

Agricultural College at Guelph are
also seriously considering purchasing
one of the instruments to be used In
the physics department.
It Is a simple apparatus, by which
any unskilled person may readily ascertain whether a subterranean
spring of pure water exists under a
spot where boring operations are desired. The instrument indicates the
presence of Mowing springs nt depths
up to one thousand feet, and docs

medium for tho action of the soil-

soil is fertile.
The soil for the beds and borders
in which spring-blooming bulbs are
to be grown should be deep and friable, filled with humus and enriched
with well-rotted horse-manure, dug
In deeply. It is best to first nig
tbe boII and then chop it .vlth the
rake to make it fine and mellow before raking. No commercial fertilizers need be -used for outdoor bulbs,

It should be understood thnt the
outdoor bulbs must do their rooting
in the fall, if the best results are
desired in the spring. They should
he planted about tho time of the
give them six weeks before the
ground will be so cold as to prevent
further root-growth. You must
judge this by your latitude. The
bulbs should be planted in the soil
to a depth of three times their
height, and may be planted quite
closely together if a massed effect
is desired In the beds and borders.
In fact they rarely look well unless
their foliage touches when in full
growth. These distances will give
good results; Plant hyacinths three
inches apart; large tulips, four;
small tulips, three; Von Sion narcissus, three; other narcissus, as close
aB two Inches. Crocus may he
planted ns close as desired, as may
Scllla Slberlca and grape hyacinth.
When making figures nnd designs,
you must be tnrgely governed by the
harmony of the design.
Many persons fail of success with
outdoor bulbs through not planting
them properly. They Bhould not be
planted In n hole In the soil, nor
pressed into the ground. The beat
method, the one adopted by the beat
amateurs, is to throw the soil out
of iho bed or border, which is tho
same as digging It. Then return a
portion to the bottom, so as to
bring tho bulbs four inches (for
hyacinths) from the surface. Level
thiB with the rake, and set the
bulbs    the required    distance apart,
in from eighteen to twenty-one days
before desired ln bloom, and kept in
a temperature of sixty-five degrees at
night and not over seventy-live in
the day time, always in a moist atmosphere and out of thc direct rays
of the sun. A sunny window with a
thin Bash-curtain, is an ideal place
for -them. If the bulbs are desired
for Easter, after they have filled the
pots with roots, hury them outside
In the garden, level with thc soil,
put leaves or straw over them, and
cover with boards, so they can be
easily gotten out when wanted.
When the soil in the bulb beds and
borders has frozen solid, it should le
mulched with some good covering,
such as leaves, straw or hay to a
depth of six Inches. Strawy manure
may also be used to advantage, and
this covered with bnmh to prevent
the covering blowing of!. This
mulching should not be taken oft until the hard frosts are past, as the
alternate freezing and thawing and
lifting the bulbs out of the ground
will prevent their blooming.
Outdoor bulbs require very little
frost, which will ^ord'narUy cultivation in the spring beyond having the mulching removed when the
soil gets warm, and the latter given
a good stirring when it gets dry
enough without baking the top. No
fertilizing is required at this time,
as the growth ot the root which produces the flower will have been completed.
The bulbs which are bloomed in the
spring of the year and in the house
in pots are known to the trade as
"Dutch bulbs." They are grown
exclusively in Holland for commercial purposes and have not been* successfully grown in any other place.
The soil, temperature and climate in
Holland seems to be just right for
their best development and many
millions are grown yearly and exported to other countries. It .iB a
fact that the tulip and hyacinth,
from Holland bulbs, if grown outdoors in this country, will run out
In a few yenrs. So it pays to replant them evory yenr if the finest
effects are desired. Tho bulbs which
have been bloomed in pots in the
house should, after blooming, be
thrown away ns worthless, as it does
not pay to attempt to get a second
bloom from them. The hybridizers
are continually introducing nower
and finer types, a few of which
should be tried hy the amateur every season. You can depend on it
that any variety introduced has been
thoroughly tested and found ft fly

Captain Webb's Famous Swim
Once before haB tbe channel been
conquered. That wos as far back
as 1875, wben Captain Webb achieved 'his great swim.
He Btarted from a block of granite
projecting from the unfinished Admiralty Pier at Dover at 12.56 p.m. oa
Tuesday, August 24, und, after being
in the water for over twenty-one
hours, he landed on tho Bands west
ol Calais Harbour at 10.41 a.m. on
August   25.
Covered with porpoise oil, a preparation to exclude tbe cold, Captain Webb dived in with the conditions all in favor of a successful
swim. Swimming on an average
twenty-six strokes to the minute, he
made excellent progress on the half-
ebb tide.
Two small boats, as well as the
lugger Ann, accompanied the swimmer.
During the flrst hour the current
carried Webb as tar down Channel as
Lydden Spout, but wben the slack
water was encountered he put ln
some (ast work chiefly by the breast
Alter beiag ln the water nearly
two hours Webb took his flrst refreshment, the bottom of a flask
twice lull of ale. Throughout his
swim Webb took no solid food, the
only nutriment given him being coffee, ale, brandy, beef tea, and a little cod-liver oil.
By 3.25 lt was estimated that
Webb was four miles from the English coast, and when the flood tide
set ln soon after the swimmer was
quickly again abreast of the point
at which he started.
The longer he remained In the water, the better he seemed to swim,
and for some time It taxed the powers of the rowers In the lugger to
keep pace with him.
As twilight came on Webb took
some hot coffee, nnd the lights at
the South Foreland and Cape Oris
nez appeared.
Webb appeared to sbow signs of
weakening after eight and a half
hours in the water, and cnmplainod
ol being Htung on tho shoulder by a
Jelly-Ash. A little brandy revlvod
him, however, and a low minutes
later be shouted that he was all
He continued to swim with clocklike regularity, and at eleven o'clock
bearings showed tbat he wns eight
miles (rom Cape Grisncz.
So hopeful, iadeed, were tho prospects of success that a message was
sent to Webb that if he could hold
out (or another (our hours he might
expect to go ashore near Cape Gris-
Encouraged by this news Webb
•warn on with renewed vigor, and for
another (our hours be continued to
make good headway. At 3 a.m.,
however, he became weak, and Baker
the diver accompanying the party,
wa* stripped ln the small boat with
• Ufe-llne.
But again Webb wae revived with
brandy and coffee, and he was still
swimming well when dawn broke on
a ruffled sea.
A thick mist obBCured the land (or
■om* time, hut this was dispersed by
a strong breeze, which, however,
helped to make tbe water choppy,
Webb was much distressed hy the
waves breaking over his (ace, and
Bnker kept him company In the water (or a few minutes.
At 8 a.m. Webb was ball a mile
Irom the shore, fighting the waves
with grim determination. The tide
took   him   toward!   Calale Harbor,

and the next quarter ot a mile occupied nearly two hours.
Getting weaker and weaker Webb
struggled on, sheltered somewhat
(rom the waves hy a boat which had
put out (rom Calais, and at 10 a.m.
only one hundred nnd tidy yards remained to he covered.
Heartened by cheers (rom tbe boats
and with success In Bight he swam
gallantly on worn out as ho was until 10.41 .ni. he felt land beneath his
feot.    He had won.
The Handyman
Mr. Brewster thought his front
door lookod ns though a coat of
varnish would do it no harm and resolved to do it himself to save tbe
expense of a painter.
Finding an old "golden sirup" tin
ln the yard, ho went oil to the shop
for Borne "host onk varnish." He
placed it in the pantry for tho night
and was up early noxt morning and
by half past twelve had not the door
"I don't like it now, it's done," he
said to bis wife,
"It's bad varnish," roplied Bhe.
"He's sold you tho wrong sort of
He thought so, too, and went back
to tbe shop, taking what wns left
with him.
"This Is funny varnish you sold
mo." said he. "It's dull, sticky
After oxnminlng it. tho shop man
said, "This is not what I sold you.
This Is sirup."
It. then dawned on him that ho had
got hold of the wrong tin, anil he
went back homo to explain to bis
wile who nt once snld :
"Good gracious, James I And I've
made tho pudding with tho other tln-
ful I"    Then nfter a moment's pause
From Krag to Elko on tha Elk
River Valley, South Forks
And ls this—yarrow? This tho stream
Of whloh my fancy cherished,
So faithfully a waking dream,
An image that hath perished
Oh, that some minstrels harp    were
To utter notes ot gladness,
And chase this silence (rom the air
That Alls my heart with sadness.
So sang Wordsworth when he visited the Scottish stream Yarrow, and
nothing is more suitable to convey
the writer's feelings as he gazed from
tha crags above on the meeting of
the waters ln that famous resort lor
fish and game, South Forks. Often
had I seen the pack saddles going on
to the horses and watched them in
ths distance following the trail by
the riven side. I had watched them
depart (ull ot hope, eager with expectation. I had seen them return,
hopes blasted, or realised. I bad
had the scenery described to me, but
it conveyed only a faint idea of the
beauty and rustic scenery of South
Forks. Alternately Wordsworth'F
poem and Moore's "Meeting of thc
Waters" ran In my mind,
"There is not ln the wide world    a
valley so sweet
As that vale   in   whoso   bosom thc
bright waters meet."
It one could only see through the
mist of millions of years that have
gone, and seo as tf iny magic the
wild volcanic eruptions that threw
out the river bed and raise! the bigh
mountains on either side, and then
return from their reverie as it were
and see the peaceful rivers blending
in harmony and peace, what a contrast. The storms nave ceased and
nature now unfolds her greatest
beauty unrivaled by the painters'
brush or the poets' pen.
But I must bid adieu to South
Forks and hasten homeward. Already
the shades of evening are (ailing and
the long drawn out shadows Bit
across our path. The road is nar-
\ row, rugged and steep, and the horses pant as they climb hill alter hill.
The whip hangs loose and the spur Is
ot no service I do not wish to hasten
Every little hill crossed discloses
fresh beauty. Nature is never monotonous, hut varied Here is a green
patch as i( spring waB still reigning.
There the yellow tints of autumn.
Here again the crimson shaded leaves (ailing and rustling In the light
breeze. There a mixture o( green,
white, yellow and red, and other colors too numerous to mention blended together not regularly but
thrown in as it were recklessly hy
some unknown hand. Around the
corner of the laBt hill and away a-
head lies the lights of Elko. I look
admiringly on the little townsite the
most beautiful in the pass and only
awaken out of my reverie as the tired horse stops opposite the livery
stable. Much Is stored in my memory that must remain there being
unable to give the (ull expression to
my thoughts and feelings.

Helpful   Household   Hints
Cream Biscuits (tested)—One large of    butter,    one-half cupful of    cold
cupful   of Bweet cream, add a pinch; water, two-thirds uf a cupful of mol-
ot salt and a pinch of nmlu. Stir
well. Then add two heaping tea-
spoonfuls of baking-powder and flour
to make a soft dough. Roll and cu;
out and bake. These btBcults are
excellent. Mrs.J.S.
Devil's Food Cake—I have used
this recipe tor four years and never
had a (ailure : Two cupfuls of brown
sugar, one-half cupful of butter, two
well-beaten eggs, oue-half cupful ot
sour milk, two squares of chocolate
disolved in one cupful of boiling water, two teaspoonfuls of soda mixed
with the sour milk and two cupfuls
of flour. Flavor with one teaspoon-
(ul of vanilla. Beat all well. Then
bake. Mrs. J.W.fl.
Steamed Icing—Beat togother thoroughly the whites of two eggs, and
Ave tableBpoontulB of granulated
sugar aud beat again. Put in doublo
boiler, cover and steam ten minutes.
Take from stove and beat with a
spoon until cold. Flavor with vanilla. It will not run ou ihe tuV»
but will keep soft much better than
boiled icing. Mrs. D.N.B.
Good Stain (or Floors—Tbe best,
most Inexpensive and only permanent
stain (or floors is permanganate of
potash. It can be purchased at any
drug-store. Mix about one quarter
o( an ounce to a quart o( water.
With a brush apply Irccly ond quickly to a dry floor. Make two applications l( a very dark color is desired. When dry, oil with burnt lln-
seed-oil or boeswax and turpentine.
You cannot wash the stain off. When
you Arst stain the floor, the color
wlll be a bright magneta, but it
changes almost Immediately to a
dark, rich brown—a permanent stain.
Mrs. G. B.
Vinegar From Apple Pearlngs—
Cover with rain-water, let stand in
stone jar, protected from Hies with
a cloth tied fast. Stir once or
twico a week until cool weather sets
in, thon drain and add oae-half cupful ot brown sugar to one quart of
juico. Let thiB work, skimming
when necessary until clear. Then

Hints Worth Knowing—Beet-tops
and lettuce leaves can be cooked together as greens.
Lettuce that has grown to seed cnn
he led to the chickens and the pigs.
Small cucumbers pickled, spiced nnd
put up in vinegar and sealed in self-
sealers will keep better than it salted down ln brine.
In pouring liquid from a bottle,
tilt so that the drip will be on the
side opposite tbe label and thus add
much to the general appearance of
your medicine-chest.
By placing a small lid or tin ln the
bottom of a kettle or pot likely to
scorch, and keeping the space under
neath woll Atled with water you may
prevent even a slight burning and
thus not only do Away with all the
"scorchy" odor and taste, but also
save time otherwise required to clean
vessel. This is especially helpful ln
pots already burnt.
Gather every little scrap ot soap
put Into receptacle and when sufficl
ent quantity is saved melt slowly
and use for all purposes wbere soap
ls needed.
Give your stoves a thorough coat
ot black enamel. It will keep the
Iron looking (resh and black for
months and will not aoll the hands.

Sewing Suggestions—Sleeve plack
ets in shirts and shirt-waists should
always be cut deep enough to mea
sure one Inch more than the length
ot the cuff when spread open flat.
Thereiore, tbe placket silt should be
cut one hall the length ot the finished cuffs, plus one-half Inch. This is
in order that the cuffs can be readily
laid flat tor proper starching and
ironing, without fear ot tearing the
placket opening at the top.

Buttonholes are alwaya cut vertlcle
where thore la no strain or pull ot

placket of a cuff or the front or back
closing of a bahy's full gown.
Where there ls a probable strain,

Is used Instead of starch, the garments will be stiff as when new nn.l
thoro will be no white spots on them
as Is often the case when dark clothes are starched with laundry-starch.

To Wash Soiled Towels—Having
Bom'o cotton towels that were very
hard to wash clean, I tried adding
turpentine to tho boiling sudB, allow-
ng tho towels to boll hard for 20

How to Keep Cheese—Our family ls
very (ond o( good cheese. Welsh
rarebit Is a frequent dish upon our

difficulty in keeping cheese. Upon

with a good coating of paraffin
would perfectly preserve It, koepin?

Heat the paraffin as for coverln?
jolly, and with a spoon careLniy

Pasture for Dairy Cows
Dairymen in eastern Ontario believe that the best results can only
be obtained when strict attention la
paid to feeding the cows that give
the milk. The natural grasses that
grow along the banks ot the St.
Lawrence and extend to the Ottawa
provide excellent pasture, and much
clover is grown which ls also milk-
producing. Ensilage corn Is grown In
abundance In all the St. Lawrence
comties and seldom, if ever, turns
out a poor crop. These, with the
common roots and some bran and
barley meal, make up the milch
cows' winter diet.
During the sunnier the cows are
nearly always brought in at night,
at least lor a (ew hours, and given
some meal or corn. There ts generally a dry, hot period in every season and at these times the cows are
stabled tor a large part ol the time
and given green feed. This is important also, as it emphasizes the
wisdom ot keeping a summer silage
ol the different leedstufls as they ara
ready to bring In.
In many parts ot the east tha
dairy farmers do not let the young

Two Overcome by Smoke — Two Others  Seriousl)
Injured In Early Morning
Two women, Jessie Lasho and Pan
line Payne, smothered and two other
women were seriously injured in a
fire In Nelson which consumed the establishment of Agnes West
early Tuesday morning. The blazo began in tho kitchen, and in a few
minutes bad completely gutted the
house. Most ot the inmates wero
asleep at the time and those who escaped wore forced to make, their exit
from windows, some springing onto
tho root ot the adjoining bungalow
and others dropping to the sidcwuli*
at the risk of their lives.
The neighbors were first aroused by
the piercing screams ol the terror-
stricken women and Fanny Coleman,
housekeeper at Hall Stanley's, saw
Violet Martin hanging from a front
window. She riiBhed acrosB the
street and placed a mattress beneath
Speaker Clarke Urges
the window, in all likelihood laving
M.bs Martin's life.
The firemen arrived on the scene a
few moments after the alarm had
been sent in and put two streams into the building, but the flames Lad
already made headway aad took an
hour before they could bring it under
...It was believed that all the inmates had escaped, and not until tho fire
was extinguished was it known that
the two had perished.
Jessie Lashe was found on the floor
with her head toward the door, evidently being overcome hy the smoke
while trying to get out. She was
an excellent pianist and had played
at the Chicago exposition ln  1893.
Pauline Payno had tried to escape
by the window. She was sitting
| with her head on the sill, while the
! wire screen showed that she had at*
1 tempted to force lt out when suffocated by tbe smoke. There is no insurance.
What the   Canadian
Census Shows.
"Nine-tenths of tbe people of this
country favor the annexation of Canada," declared Champ Clark, speaker
of the national house of representatives, at Freemont, Neb., today,
"and I don't care who hears me Bay
Beginning with a speech here this
morning Speaker Clark was scheduled to make addresses ln twenty-one
towns in the Third Nebras'ia district
in the interest of Daniel V. Stevens,
democratic candidate to congress to
succeed the late Representative Jas.
P. Latta.
"I am willing," he said to make
this proposition : Vou let mo run
for president on a platform calling
for the annexation of Canada, in bo
far as thia country can accomplish
that end, and let President Taft run
against me, opposing annexation.
Why, I would carry every state in
the nation."
Protect the Children
At this season of the year when fires are most provalent, and while it
Is considered by all tbat the new public school is almost fire proof, yet
at the same time a fire might tako
place even in the school building, and
then what would be the chances of
the pupils for exit without danger.
At the present time there are two
large stairways leading down Horn
tno Efcor.d storey and two ctta'nneM
or ex. 13. But where are the fire escapee, which were provided tor in the
estimates tor the construction of the
building ? If the writer ls not mistaken, the provincial statutes provides thai all school buildings eha.'
have fir-. escapeB erected on tbe outside of the building. Our school
building haB been occupied for over a
year, and yet no provision, except
the openings for the fire escape bas
heen provided for. Why this delay
in safeguarding the safety of the children?
I, Frank Henry Poarson, of Fort
Steele, B.C., by occupation a contractor, give notice that I intend on

It Ib not surprising that Canadians
are disappointed with the recent cen
bus returns. Immigration had seem
ed so enormous during the last few
years that they were led to hope
that the total population ot the dominion could not possibly be tar
short of nine million Inhabitants.
The number of Americans who of recent years have talien up forms on
the prairie provinces, together with
Ihe huge immigration trom Great
Britain, helped to further the idea.
The census has, however, told a
different tale. The ascertained population Is now 7,081,868. A few
scattered districts still to he heard
from may swell the total by another
70,000, but still loaves even tho eight
million mark well out ot sight by
over   800,000.
Nevertheless, Canadians should congratulate themselves on the census
returns in spite of these not coming
up to expectations. Thc decennial
increase has been almost thirty-three
per cent for the whole Dominion,
while the western provinces havo
shown enormous gains. Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and British
Columbia together show a gain of GO
per cent of the whole. British Columbia, the richest and most beautiful provinco in the west, has made
great strides. Vancouver and its
suburbs now number noarly 135,000
people, almost five times the popitta-
tion of   1901.
But in Bpitc of tho growth of the
agricultural districts the cities of
Canada have increased proportionately. Montreal, Canada's largest city,
shows a gain of nearly 200,000, and
now has over 46C.000 Inhabitants,
while Toronto, the second largest
city, not to be outdone, has gained
168,000, and now has   376,000.
The steady westward flow of the
tide of emigration has kept the population of tho maritime provinces almost stationary. Prince Edward Island has actually lost, New Brunswick hasi gained only 20,000, while
ln Nova Scotia the gain Ib less than
ono per cent.
The filling up of the western provinces ot Canada means that the
western vote ie Increasing ln power
in proportion to the population and
is likely ln future to play a most important part in making treaties with
the United StateB.—Spokesman-Review.
