i in- grafl was worked:
Early List Novembei Rev, .1. a.
Day, wlm roprerartod bimsell as a
Method-tot missionary lumi Alaeedon-
ia, arrived here, and as be had letters (rom l'uiu*i|>n.l Sippu-ll, ol the
Methodist Ooluinbfa college ut New
WeelmliiBter, and trom a number ol
Methodist in ulsters tlnouniK«t the
province, l»- was warmly received by
Uev. ,i. ii. p. Knox, pastor of Uu*
Methodist ehurefa as weil as by tiie
members ol Hit' congregation. He
represented that Ik* was from Macedonia, and I hut, his special mission
was to provide homes for tin or-
nlrnned children ot murdered Christians or thai ooun-try wlm were Iwits-
til in Hit; Macedonia orphanage at
Asha-tu Rogea. Macedonia, The
groa'lest desire that, Ire had was tti
iimi iioincs (or tlw Macedonian orphans among Ohristdau people in this
initry, so that Ihey might be
brought, up among proper surround
Irks and good intlucnces, and grow up
into gtxid men anil women and devout
Methoilisls.
Hay was a dark complex lotted man
of .'(a, witli an carne.-fl ami Impressive
manner, and when arrayed in a dark
suit, with a white necktie, he looked
the part he was playing. One Sunday he prcaohed In the Methodist pulpit, and his description id the wrongs
of Hie Christians, and how ruthlessly
ihi-y had lreen slaughtered by tlte Infilled Turks, and the awful condition
of tire orphans, left scarcely a dry
eye ami^-g his auditors, lie explain-
i il thai liie children ranged from mere
infants to those who were 1-1 years of
age. Those who adopted children
under 1(1 years of age could have
Ihem without paying anything, hut
those wiio desired them from in to ll
years of age musl pay $50 down to
provide for transporting ihem from
Macedonia to this oily. In return for
ihis thf children were to ire well
cared (or, sent to Sunday school and
churcli regularly, but wnuld perform
such service as might he desired hv
ihose who adopted litem In the way i*r-lK
of house and other work. T-he result was that a wave of sympalhv
swepl through the city fnr the unfortunate Macedonian orphans, and
Mr, Day for a time la rly coined
money.
In a few davs he had Sfififl in his
pockets contributed by Ihe following
sympathetic and charitable citizens:
.1. A l-'lovd. Il-Ofl; Wiili.un McQueen,
$50; Oeorge Agirew. $50; A Enders-
hv, JUKI; ,1, O, Moody, $50; II. R.
Jones $50; A. I.. Watson, $50; Dr.
Kerr. $50.
A   receipt,  whieh  is worded as follows, is all eaeli of tire victims have
to  show tor  the money  which     they
advanced:
To tire Macedonian Orphanage:
Rossland, Nov. 7. 1008
This is to certify that 1 have paid
to Rev. .1 A Day, l» D., the sum of

Aflei Ire hati got t-he money of his
Victims, Ire left -Here and went to
Nelson, whieh cltj lit' worked success-
luily, and tlreii lie visited othei tow
in tire province, going from here bo
towns in Alberta and MahHoIm,
gathering money in large sums wher
evei he went, (or tre eouhl sited Units
ai a moment's notice, and could talk
mosl sadly of the dear little orphans

cruelly muttered hv the unspeakable
Turks, li. was only at thc risk pi
Ins brother's liberty, and iierhaps
lid- tlml he was a-hle to venture from
Ins own country to Canada in tlio interest ..f lire |io..r orphans, as his
brothel was a hostage for him and ii
in- tiiti noi return to Macedonia thero
w.is no telling what would happen to
his Irelmed kinsman.
Tin- last   heard of  Ml.  Day lie   was

I'nv c.i-il. William McQueen, who
had contributed $60 tu the cause of
tlte oiphans, finally became suspicious
tliat all was not 'well iu Macedonia,
and Ih* wrote to the authorities nf
ihe Macedonian orphanage. A reply
was receiveil from Salnnica, stating
llial there was un such institution as
ihe Macedonian orphanage, and as far
a.s Rev, .'). A. Day, D.D., was concerned, nn individual of that name
was known in all of Macedonia.
The swindler made his first appearance in this province in New Westminster last summer, where he Introduced himself to Principal Sipp-
rell. of Columbia Methodist eolleffe,
as Rev. .1. A. Day, and told him
about tlte same story as he did here
as to his being a missionary from
Macedonia, and of the condition of
the orphans, and of the great good it
would do them to be taken from
where they would in the future he
subjected to infidel Influences and Infidel cruelty, and placing them among
Christians in this province.
Mr. Sipprell sympathized with him
and his mission, and gave him a letter commending him to tho good offices of all Methodist clergymen and
l-lieir congregations, and told him
that he thought he could do effective
work for the orphans in the several
cities of the province.    Mr. Day sal-

A LAND OF PROMISE
HOW Canada HAS DROWN FROM
A COUNTRY OF SHALL
THINGS.
Canada is to-day the modern land
"f promise—a Canaan, as it were,
brought up to date.
Foi generations the country little
more ctmn held Its own, as regai i,
both wealth ami progress tn the
march ol advancement—ol growing
population ami Increased wealth—the
1 uited States stood so far iii toe van
that the .small efforts nf tbe people
to tin- north were overshadowed and
forgotten.
Then came .1 unu in the tide Can-
.ula was consolidated and became »
uai mn. Next .she stretched oul bei
arms, and tho easi was oonneoted
with tin* far west. The locomotive,
ruuniug ovoi iim.se thin bands ol
sieei, opened up twu thousand miles
• ii virgin country. The «!*•>» train and
iin- ji,ui. borne disappeared, and ihv
Hudson Uay posts ui yesterday    ba*
I auu-  llii* WlltUlpegfl ul   to-day.
It is a good showing tm thiity-tive
years—-a marvellous showing. The
Ullpl 1-ilini 1\e    Juantes      have hevmin
ih,- n-ualtlHbeartug wheat Ileitis. Tin
hues 1 and   mineral lands ha/ve been
opened Up, Willie     111 eastern Caii.nla
mauulaolurlng ittduslres liave sprung
lu llle uii ull sides,
However, tins is hut a beginning, a
fan omen ul what is lo come.
During ihe year now closed lifty
ihoiisand Ameiuan.s removed Into
western Canada and have taken up
land. Tliere were thousands before
ihiin and hundreds of thousands will
follow, Ior who can resist the passion for clreap laml, wlien these acres
are prepared to return a golden revenue for lite work expended upon
them?
Volumes might welt In1 written of
how the Canadian found his own     ill
lhe Groat West, hut this brief retrospect must  he sullicient  here.
An eminent banker, who has gone
into lhe subject wilh care, makes llw
statement 1 tutt per capita, Canada is
io-day lhe richest country 111 the
world; lhat Die tolal amount uf
money to the credit of the Canadian
public in ils governmental ami chartered banks, is no less than (SS for
every man, woman and child in the
Dominion. And, remember, these
figures represent only monies ihis
hanker knew of, and does not Include
that in private hanks, loan companies, trust companies, and kindred or-
gani/alions. Another evidence of the
extraordinary growth of wealth iu
Canada, in proportion to the population, can be gleaned from the following: In 1855 Canada's population
was 2,050,000, and in that vear the
hank deposits were $11,MM.Will. In
I'iiu the population is 6,000,000, and
lln- hank deposits are $000,-000.000,
Iu other words, the Canadians have
to-day over $25 where thev had Jl
back in 1881).
All classes of people in Canada are
prosperous. Bet-ween capital 'and
labor there are, fortunately, few disagreements. There is work for all
wlm wish it. No one need he Idle in
ibe Dominion to-day. Canadians arc
generous livers. The vigorous climate means well-constructed houses,
good clot lies and healthy appetites.
The people can afford it, and the lux-
•jries nf oilier sections ol the world
become necessities lien1—-again a
mat ter of climate.
Canada has been singularly fortunate In the class of immigrant thai
lias been attracted to her, Europe's
pauper seldom lamls in Canada, and
when be dues it is usually to make
his way Into the United States. The
land 'does not attract the Italian,
ihe Hungarian, ihe Pole and the pauper Russian Jew. Tbey seek centres
looming wiih humanity, but never
lhe open prairie.
On the other hand, the sturdy Scot,
ihe Englishman and the American
iin.i ilie country to thelt liking and
are attracted by it. Thej come liere
with money, but their chief assets
.ui- intelligence and ihiitt. Thej
speak the English language; they find
the country and its people to thell
liking, and tbey are at home.
In trade instincts, in habits, in
likes and dislikes, the Canadian and
American are practically one. How
could ii lie Otherwise when tbey have
lived along side hy side for genera-
lions? The consequence ol all this
is ihai lhc United States practical!*

than vi iimiiiii,unu of merchandise, or

The average Canadian is a newspaper reader and being of English
tongue, iu the main, he sain rally
reads lhe papeis dealing wilh home
'ii.t|i-cts in other words Ihr Canadian
has no hunger for the journal from
afar off. Againsl papers of the yellow stripe he has a ilisliiu-l prejudice,
which accounts probably for the facl
thai the Dominion lo-day does nol
possess a daily of Ihis "description.
Ami, again, lbe Canadian has nol
as vei the magazine habit. This is
indicated by lbe fact thai Canada has
not to-day a magazine nf large circulation, as compared with tlw daily
and weekly pajwrs, and aside from
lhe large cities the sales of foreign1
magazines, American and English, is
very limited Indeed.
In concluding this brief review, it
may he well In quote a paragraph
from the recent speech of the president of Ihr Bank of Montreal, delivered al tbe annual meeting of Ibat institution a short, time ago. Sir
Geonre Drummond said: "I may
say thnl tbe one word written large
in lho records of Canada this year is
'prosperity,1 Railway manufacturing industries, merchants, farmers-
all are prosperous. Immigration
grows steadily; labor bas full employment, and is well remunerated.
Probably never before have we bad a
twelvemonth of such universal prosperity."

LOCAL FIRMCHANGES
JOHN    FINK     RETIRES     FROM
FINK   BROTHERS    AND EUGENE DOBEKER    TAKES  A
LARGE INTEREST.
For some weeks il has been rumored that there was an importani
■han^e pending in the firm of Fink
Brotiiers, and thi.s week the announcement is made thai John Fink
retires aiid his place is taken In
Eugene Doherer, who has had tin
management of ihe Trltes-Wood coin
pttiiy's store at .Michel foi lhe past
iwo years. Mr. E. Patterson, who
uas Iwt-u l-ookkeeiwi for the linn fm
lhe past two years, has also t-aktn an
interest in the hu.s-iiiess ami will continue wilh the new firm. The business has been changed into a stock
company wiih an authorized capital
■ it $Jb,UiiO, and quite a bhwk of slock
has been taken by eastern parties
who will not be known in the business. The new name of the firm will
ie the Fink Commercial Company,
Limited,
No men who have been in business
in tlw Kootenays are better or   more
favornlbly  known than are Jake and
John  Fink.     Their names  have been
synonlmous    with business Integrity,
ousiness energy and business success.
and  during  their business career     iu
ibis districl   they   have  built   up     a
reputation that will stand as a monument   lo  their honesty and   ability.
The time     came,    however, when    a
change was necessary,     John   Fink
(or a year or mure has been troubled
with a bad  throat  thai  has    become
serious.     it   iwcame  necessary    for
I him to go i<> a different climate per*
I maiieiil'Iy.     The   expansion of     the
business also   gave rise to the   demand for   more capital.      The solution, and the only one, was to ehttngi
the business into a   stock company,
secure the right man to take    John
Fink's place, and Own raise the 'additional capital.     The right man appeared    in    Eugene   Doberer,      Mr.
Holwrer  is    comparatively a    young
man, but in commercial life he is   a
veteran, as he lias   virtually    spenl
his   whole life in   commercial    lite.
Iu the easi he was engaged in   commercial   work    with     some of    the
Inr^est firms, and his experience was
a valuable one.     Ten years ago   be
came west and located in the Okan-
^an counlry and became manager for
a  large commercial  house at  Vernon
and Grand Forks,     There he made a
^reat success by his husiness melh>wls
and personal popularity.    About two
years   and a   half ago he  went      to
Fernie with  the Trltes-Wood     cnmpany, and soon his ability was    recognized and  he was given  thc management of lhe Michel slore where In
made g<n»d hy the bus-in."ss that    hi
did.      Mr. laborer will Iw a    mosl
valuable   acquisition    to    ihe    company, and also to the business    and
social life of Craubrook.     Mr.   Patterson  is  well  known    in  Cranbrook
and     throughout     the   district  and
everybody will be pleased to    know
ihat he is to remain with lhe    company.
It is the intention of tbe new com
pany to move into new quarters as
soon as the building can be completed, and at this time negotiations
.ire pending with Messrs. Bealtie and
KiiiT. Hie owners of Hie lots next to
Hie post office, for the erection of a
building Hial will meet the requirements of Ilns new and growing linn.

Rambling  Reveries
BY A DHEAMKR.
BY-AND-BV.
The chilly winds will cease lo blow
And all ihe wintry wealtior go,
lly-aiid-hy.
And all  the violets vvill hloom
And Iill the woods with sweet   perfume,
lly-aud-by.
The little birds Hit ami wing
And warble as ihey greet Ute spring,
Hy-aml-by.
That tired feeling, too, will come
When everyone will say, "Oh, hum,"
By-ami-by.
The hens will all hegin to lay
And eggs grow cheaper every -day,
By-a nil-by.
The coal will then decrease in price,
Hut we will have to pay for ice,
By-and-by.
Ami though we will not shovel snow
There'll he a grassy lawn to mow,
By-and-by.
We cannot all have talent, wc cannot all have great powers, we cannot all do greal work; but we can
all, by slow and patient endeavor,
build ii|i character, which may do
g.K«l work, even I hough it may be
small ii-n■ t humble. We do not improve the character of anybody else
in any way so well as by improving
our owii character, and lhat is in
the power of each one of us; we ran
begin al once and we can always go
on with ihis work, wherever our Iol
is cast.
One of llw lessons taught us by
t.aslei is Ihis facl. Too often men
think of a dead or historical Christ,
and let go the essentia] truth of a
Christ llml lives and reigns. The
weakness of the chinch is due largely
to tbe failure of llu- multitude to
realize this. Tbe world is not to Iw
saved by maxims. The only hope
is in a living Christ; a Christ so
living within us thai we will become ;in embodiment of His teachings, a personifieatioii of His sym-
paihy ami love. When the world sees
Christ sn manifested in us, then it
will listen to His voice, and in him
the world will iimi the answer to Its
anxious problems,
om political meetings, youi patties,[
youi lecture courses   ami your enter-
taiiuneuts, why not invite lum to
your church? Tell your pastm to
pleach a little betler and the cboii
to  sing  a  little lU'ire  sweetly     next
Sunday and then Invite your friend to
yom church home to worship with
you.    Don't invite him to come and
then make lum gn alone, sit alone ami
feel alone in church. If tlw Christian people would be more faithful in
attendance at worship, both morning
and evening, ihe strangers wnuld
conic more often and enjoy the service better. When Christian people
sav to the world, bv staying away
fiom church services, that tbey And
im enjoyment or help, oi comfort m
the assembling fm the worst)Ip ol
(itfd, who can convince Ihose, who
are not Christians Hmt ihev will receive any  hem-tit   by  attending Mivine
services? Let us ai least be consistent ami live what we profess,
The best way to tell the woild that
wtu are a child of (Iol, is to manifest His spirll iu your dally walk,
and to sIhiW your  love lm   His house
bv ni leu being    found thei i    l lis

SYMPOL OF Till*) KASTKP KGO.
When the nations of the west, or
Kiirope, were convened to Christianity, the sentiment of tin- egg was
universally accepted as a suggestive
.symbol of their faith in thc risen
Saviour, ami it has ever since remained the most favored figure of tihe
Raster festivities all over the continent. The children, who rule the
heart and home of mankind, are
doubtless responsible for the keeping
alive of this old custom, for tiiey
love and demand tbe visit of the rah-
hit, with his nest of beautiful crrs,
ou the pla-d Kaster morn, just as
they love and long for the coming of
dear Santa on Christmas eve.

CRANBROOK    PRISONER
ESCAPES,
Th.' mm,his ,.i ilu- Herald will remember ihe attempted burglary of
\\ II Wilson's jewelry slore by one
Hel.met,      who     adopted    the novel
method nf boring a bole through the
Milrwall inlo ihe show window and
using a long wire with a crook. The
following from tin1 Nelson News will
show ihal Delaney has once more
gotten busy, and also Ihal the system at ihe Nelson jail must lie
rank:
"Another prisoner has escapiil from
tin' provincial gaol at Nelson, and is
still at large. Tbe name under
which he vvas committed vvas Delaney, hm ihe name It. »J. .lottatison is

hrown hair and blue eyes. He was
commit led at Cranhrook lasl fall
for burglary to serve a year, just
half nf which has expired.
T. McKee, anotli-er. Cranhrook burglar, vvas released from tbe gaol on
Saturday. He and Delaney hati been
companions.
"Between Delaney and liberty were
two locked doors, on one of which
there was a Yale lock, the outer door
having a hig moil ice lock. The prisoner on Sunday afternoon alfout 'd
o'clock contrived in some wnv io open
hoth these doors aril walk off. He
relocked tbe first deor but left the
ouler door open. He then lefl- Hie

"Delaney   had complained ibat     tbe

A GOOD .JOB.
A well known artist was once engaged upon a sacred picture. A
very handsome old model named
Smith sal for the head of St. Mark.
"Atist ami model became great friends
hut When the picture vvas finished,
,lbey losl sight of one another. One
Ihlay, however, the artist, wandering
about the Zoological Gardens, came
upon bis old model, with a broom iu
his hand, hwiking very disconsolate.
.-"IIiiMo, SmilU/' said be, "you don't
look very cheery. Whal are you doing now'.'" Well, I ain't tloln' much,
sir, and that's a fact. I'tntii citgag-

A LEVEL-HEADED PARSON.
Jusl before the collection was taken
up one Sunday morning a negro
clergyman announced that be regretted to state ihat a certain brother
bad forgotten to lock ibe door of bis
chicken house the nighl before, and as
a resti,i in the morning hi- found that
most of the fowls ' had disappeared.
"I dona' want to be pussona*!, brcri-

Tlte resu-ll was a flue cnllrelion; not
a single member of the congregation
feigned asleep, After it vvas counted
the old parson came forward, "Now,

Shortly after our last convention,
the litigaiion between the War Eagle
M ning Co. and Uie Center Star Co.
vs. Rossland Miners' Union, was settled. While it was not all we would
desire, it was lbe best obtainable,
I am pleased lo slate lhat since Ihal
lime No. M has forged ahead and today is one of the strongest unions in
the district.
If some ot our small unions would
amalgamate, it would enable them lo
employ a secretary, or in the alternate a union at large could be formed by the dislriel ami a walking
delegate employed under the supervision ol the executive board of the
district, to visit all places not covered by any local union. I am of the
opinion that, if some such method
were carried out, ii wnuld give us a
more effective organization,
The calling of the convention should
be left in the hands of the executive,
wiih instructions tu call it at least
once a year. 1 make this recommendation, believing our legislative
