(From the Nelson News Aunual.)
Looking back over 19011 aud th* evidences uf the progress ol Cranbrook
uud the immediate locality during
the year that Is passing us, certain
iinterprlses and structures lift their
heads aud shoulders well above tbe
level ol the general average.
Looker! at Irom the viewpoint     ol
tbo public convenience, the most Im-
portunt iinilertakliiK is     that ol tbo
Kuutenay   Telephone Lines, Limited,
ivblch  propones to place  the Kooteuay   country     in long instance tolc-
phonic communication with     all the
country lo the eum     ol us as far as
Winnipeg aud beyond,   at. well as thu
United Stales.    Already the company
hiw Iti right ol    way cleared nearly
to Creston aud the wires strung Irom
Cranbrook to tho Crow's    Nest.   At
Mils point au nieiislon has heen run
lor some    miles to connect with thc
linos    belonging to the Alberta government.    Already   Mayor   Pink has
held   congratulatory   communication
over the system between   Cranbrook
and Calgary, at  which point Mayor
ll. Ft. Jamleson of the latter city waa
glad to respond in kindly terms. The
distance between Calgary and Cranbrook Is about 374 miles, and it may
be added that     Hon. Mr. Gushing a
lew days since sent his good wishes
lor the    enterprise all tbe way Irom
Edmonton for the success ot the enterprise to   Maurice Quatn, the very
popular superintendent ol    the com
pany.   Though the two cities are nop
crated by some USD   miles,    yet the
conversation was as easily carried on
as bctweon two ol tbe offices here in
the city.    The circuit throughout tho
length of the main nerve ol the system Is ol heavy copper wire and the
auxiliary nerves, or feeders are ot the
usual    material.    The     lines wlll he
continued west and southwest aloag
the route, or    close by the route, ol
thu Canadian    Pacific railway aa far
as Creston, at which   town   the line
will bear noarly due    south to Port
Hill on the Idaho boundary to connect with thc   Rocky   Mountain Bell
telephone system, thus giving access
to the states.   Other   linos     will be
carried   north to    Port Steele   and
Wasa, and thus along to Windermere

It ls much to the credit of Cranbrook that the conception ol tho
scheme, Its financing aad working out
to a succeslul conclusion is all fairly
claimed by Cranbrook men; R. E.
Beattle is president of the company,
Archie Leitch Is vice president, and
V. Hyde Baker and Dr. J. H. King
arc the directors. Maurice Quale,
the superintendent, Is the main dynamo and man ol affairs of the undertaking. The head offices ol the
company wlll he here in Oranbrook,
which Is now remarkable lor tbe extraordinary network ol wires, telegraphic, telephonic, and for lighting
purposes, which fairly lestoon the
It wlll be in tbc memory of many

To those living in Cranbrook and
well Informed of its progress It is a
matter ol constaat surprise bow It Is
quietly invading tho quiet places
where live years or less ago, logging
was being carried on day iu and day
out. Tbat vague, Intermediate area
known as "The Hill," that is tbo
bench land to the southeast of the
city, ls growing, spreading reaching
out into the forest, or cut away forest, as an most elegant residential
quarter. All kinds ol lovely homes
exist, and others are going up as il
by magic, each more beautiful and
more commodious than Its predecessor. In tbe main streets and avenues progress is not so marked, perhaps, but when mads le of a thoroughly permanent, solid, steel and
concrete kind ol thing-something
that has come to stay. They seem
to announce: "We have arrived and
are here for all time." Take tbo
premises of the Bank of Commerce or
the Pink block, lor Instance.
Mention of buildings at once suggests tbe new public school which by
the middle ot January will be ready
for the reception ol thc children.
When completed thla structure will
represent an expenditure of close on
160,000, ol which the provincial government provided 118,000 and tbe
city the remaining $46,000. The new
building In situated on Cranbrook
street, close by the site of tbe old
school, which to put it mildly, had
at the time It was utterly destroyed
by a fire that lelt aot a trace of it
in 46 minutes, been found entirely out
ol date, If not an actual menace to
tbc safety of the pupils attending.
It was a perfect and positive fire-
trap and was otherwise so deficient
that they had to be superseded by
better things. No such defects affect
the new building. It ia a massive,
yet singularly airy, structure of 109
feet by some 8S feet in width, tbe
longitudinal axis lying east and west
It is constructed throughout ol red
brick, the window and door facings
being In cement, finely finished. The
foundations, basement walla and lootings are of concrete. There are five
spacious class rooms on each floor
and these are all open on one side Into a wide, central hall and on the
back Into a passage-way leading to
the Are escapes on the north side oil
the building. Each class room ls di-
vlded Irom the other by wide lobbies
so as to prevent any possible chance
of crowding or congestion In the
event of any panic. The dominant
note of tho whole Is tbat ol great
spaciousness, combined with airiness
and most ample light. The building
Is steam boated Irom three large
hollers situated in tbe banement,
these appliances being supplied Irom
the Pease Foundry Company of Toronto. All the hoatlng plant, boilers
piping, radiators, etc., have been put
In place and supplied by J. O, McCallum 11 Co., ol Oranbrook. It Is
a splendid piece of work and admirably carried out. The sanitary plumbing wns supplied hy Patmore Bros,
ol Crnnbrook. It Ih a somewhat novel feature that play roomr, are provided ln the basement, one Ior the
liovs and thc other for the girls.
Both are steam heated and will be
groatly availed of ln very cold or
wot weather.

More bread and Belter bread
—And the Reason for it
be made from strong wheat.
Manitoba hard wheat is acknowledged tho strongest in the world—
and tbat is the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Every grain
of this wheat contains both high-
grade and law-grade properties.
In separating the high-grade parts
from the low-grade the Western
Cauda Flour Mills put the hard
wheat through a process so exacting
tbat not a single low-grade part
has the remotest chance of getting
in with the high-grade.
Of course thi* .special process is
more expensive to operate but it
nienns a lot to Purity flour users -
that's why we use It.
It means that Purity Flour Is
made entirely of the highest-grade
flour parts of the strongest wheat
in the world.
It means a high-class, strong flour
and therefore yields "more bread
and better bread."
Purity may cost a little more
than tome flours, but resnlta prove
it the cheapest and most economical after all,

D.   J.  Johnson Is erecting the new

approaching completion on Fenwiek

consisting ol two stories with basement. The upper floor wlll ho used

The foundations and basement of

new olllcos and appurtenances will

Ol the public works recently undertaken by thc provincial government
special mention must he made ol the
new bridge now being erected at
Wardner. As matters Htand, people
living in the Wardner locality, II
thoy need to cross the river with
vehicles, must make use ol tbc Kurt
Htcelc bridge, which Involves a Journey ol fully 23 miles, Tbe want of
such accommodation has seriously affected thc district around
Bull   river,     where some     very line
ranch and fruitgrowing land Is to be
had. Thin condition will be reml-
dled by the new bridge, wblcb will
be some COO leet In length. John
Held, who hns the sole charge ol all
the bridges, roads, anil trails In the
Fort Steele Mining Division, states
that, given ordinary luck, tbe new
Wardner bridge will he opened for
traffic by May 1 next. Under his
supervision a new bridge has been
built at Port Hteele to replace the
older structure, which was found to
bu rapidly lulling. The uew bridge
lum been built close beside the old
tun' and Immediately down stream
from It. Thc men nre now removing
tho old bridge lloor and upper works
but tho abutment:! wlll be allowed to
stand an a protection to the new one

in length, and will, in time, lorm
part ol tbe great road system so
prominently associated with the name
of Hon. Thomas Taylor. There Is no
doubt hut tbat It wlll be coupled up
with tbe road from Hlrdar and Cms-
ton to Ooatlell, and also with the
main trunk road, to be built through
from the Alberta boundary Hue via
Michel, llosmer, fernie nnd Rlkn,
and so to Wardner. The section
which will be under tbe charge of
John Held will he carried via Vabk,
Moyle, Ward's ranch, Loco, Cranbrook, and close along the loot ol
Uaker Mountain tu Wardner, where
It will nearly touch, 11 ll will not
cross, the largo extent ol acreage
now helllg cleared by I'etcr Lund for
fruit growing and general farming
It Is proposed to throw a bridge
across the St. Mary's river at n
point near Wycliffe, with a view ul
to cutting off the great dctoui now
necessary in getting by road to either Wycllffe or     Marysville.    Thomas
Caven, M. P, I'., is Interested In seeing this matter go through and wlll
make his power lelt In this direction
