The quarantine te now ionoirt-d from
the Ht. Kugene ond the mine is running
with a full force. The water supply is
all that is necessary and from lio tu 140
tons of ore are uow being-daily turned
nut. A full force uf men are employed
hand everything seems favorable for a
record breaking year.
THU NKW SAW MILL
Grunt & Sheady have established their
lumber camp at the bead of the upper
lake aud have 35 or 40 men employed,
lt ts their intention to get out 3,000,000
feet of logs as soon as possible to be in
readiness for the starting of their mill by
tbe first of May. It bas been decided
that the mill wilt be located to tbe south
of tbe town, between the station aud tbe
St. Eugene concentrator. They intend
to run a tug on the lake for the purpose
of bringing the log-a from their lumber
camp to tbe mill. Kvery tiling mill be
of the best, and Moyie will soon have
one of the largest wtwiuills In British
Columbia.
CLAIMS AROUND MOY IK
A company composed of Messrs. P.J.
McMahon, Hunt, Taylor and Watkins
are working a group of claims about one
mile south of the Society Girl mine. On
tbe surface tbey bave a showing of about
four feet of quartz which is identical
with that of the St, Kugene. About 100
feet dowu tbe mountain they have run in
a tuunel for 50 feet and have a good
showing of galena in the face. They
are steadily worklngthe claim and every
flay the prospects look brighter.
T. Johnson, who has an interest in the
Aurora mine, has also several claims adjoining the-St. Kugene property on the
south. He baa already a good showing
of galena ou the surface, the vein corresponding to that of the St. Kugene, and
intends at once going on lo develope
what be surely has—a sister mine to the
St. Kugene.
OFFICERS OF THS MINKKS' UNION
A meeting ol the Miners' Union which
had been postponed on account of tbe
quarantine at the St. Kugene, wai held

The Greatest   and   Richest   Coal
Mines  on the American
Continent
A GREAT TOWN WITH A BIO FUTURE.
Last week the editor of The Herald
paid a long deferred visit to Fernie. He
had excellent company ou tbe train, and
when within about six miles of tbe coal
bearing center, there was a crash and
crunching of ties that meant an accident.
It was a simple case of the rails spreading, and a forced walk to town or a
dreary wait of several hours. We took
Ibe walk aud found It good, with Charlie
Armstrong and W. S. Keay as pace
makers, arriving at the Royal in good
shape and in condition for another six
mile jaunt.   llut we didn't take it.
There we met Harry Bently. Kvery
body knows Beutley, and it would uot
in like a visit to Feruie with Beutley
lelt out. Aud before we had talked with
him teu minutes, he had told the latest
story, given a host offsets on tbe wonderful coal deposits in tbat part ofthe
country, dilated on the marvelous prosperity ahead for Fernie, arranged with
the visiting tenderfeet for a trip to Ihe
mines and the brewery, ordered three
rounds of drinks, and when the Cranbrook aud Fort Sleele men declined to
partake, fainted dead Away. Malcolm
Mclnnes aud Landlord Tuttle revived
him witb a glass of water, and the visitors became repentant.
A portion of the eveniug was spent al
George Levasseur's hotel, wilh the landlord as host. Levasseur is an Irishman,
with a strong French accent aud a big
heart. He says little, bul keeps up a
heap of thinking, and thoroughly enjoys
a good story.    	
The Brewery-
The neit morning, tfter despatching
a mist appetizing breakfast at the Royal
started for the new brewery that has
just been completed by Mesrrs. Sick,
Maulz and Scott, aud were surprised to
find such a large institution. The building is 75 feet square, three stories high,
with a boiler room addition. It is built
according to the latest plans of an up-to-
date brewery, and is complete in every
feature. From the engine room on the
first floor, to the tank bouse at the lop
of the building, no expense bas been
spared to facilitate work and enable
them to produce beer that will equal any
made. The structure fully equipped
will coat about |30,ooo, aud will have a
capacity of ao barrels a day. There is
an ice machine, with a capacity of six
tons every *4 hours, aud was installed at
a cost f$x>o. In tbe storsge cellar tbey
bave tank capacity for 1500 barrels.
Each department is separate and distinct, and fully equipped witli all modern appliances to produce the best results. One little machine about the size
ofa large coffee urn, caught our eye.
We were lold it was a filter, and that it
cost $ 1000. By using it, the beer as it is
drawn from the tanks to the kegs, is
made as clear as crystal.
Several brews bave been made, and
about the first of the month the first
product of tbe uew brewery will be placed
on the market, and about April 15 the
hock beer will be ready for use.
Soulh Kast Kooteuay has a great institution In Ibis brewery, since it will be
able to give to the people a beer equal
in appearance, flavor aud quality to any
ahipped into the district. The gentlemen who have pnt their money into the
Institution are entitled to recognition for
their enterprise, especially as they are
determined lo leave notbiug undone to
place their product equal with the best of
beers.
A Jolly Crowd.
At noon we took lunch at the "Green
Cottage" as the guest of Harry Beutley.
Than we met the Herchmer brothers,
Mr. Randall and other congenial spirits,
who have formed a combination and live
like princes under tbeir own vine and fig
tree. We Indulged in a good lunch,
heard some good stories about South
Africa by Mr. Herchmer aud Mr. Randall, who have just returned, saw more
modern fire aruia than we have seen iu
ten yean, and was given a practical
demonstration of how a bunch of good
fellows can have a good time.
Tbt Ceil Mines.
Early in tha afternoon found us on the
wny to thc ufne* in a three seated rig,
with George Levasseur as driver, and
Beutley, Randall, Armstrong and Keay
aa company. Starting at Fernie, one
goes up the gulch straight toward the
aky. On oat side are gteat mountains,
on the other nothing but a valley several
hundred feet below. To fully appreciate
it, one muat take the ride with George
levasseur .holding the ribbons. Thete
were times when we would go around a
sharp curve ou two wheels, and most of
us were looking in the valley below, and
wondering bow far we would go before
w-c slopped- Arriving at the mine arrangements were made for a trip through
No 1. Lights iu hand, tbe procession
started Into a long, gloomy tuunel, in
which there was no sound, no light
ahead, no evidence of life—all a dark,
dreary, hopeless blank. We walked the
best we could, stumbling over rollers,
tracks, bumping our heads against the
low roof, and dodging tbe electric wire
overhead. Suddenly there was a rumb
ling sound ahead. Our guides hurried
us into a safety bole on oue side. Out of
tbe durkness came the glimmer ofa light
and then could be seeu tbe long sinuous
form of some marvelous animal, with a
head flattened in front aud u horrible.
glowing eye flashing from the center.
Nearer and nearer it came, like tbe great
serpent ofthe sea, or tbe death dealing
Anaconda of India, aud there seemed to
be no doubt but tbe end of tbe little
party huddled to one side had come. It
reached us, and then we saw that it was
a modem coal train, pulled by uu electric motor, and managed by a coal begrimed individual who calmly rides buck
uud forth ulone and iu silence.
We pussed ou through hundreds uf
feet of solid coal, iuto chambers where
hard working meu were industriously
picking out the dusky diamonds. To
one wbo has never been in a coal miue,
the sensation experienced when 3000 feet
under ground is uot the most pleasing.
We were noxious to go to the limit, and
when we got there we would have given
all that we owned at that second to huve
beeu ut tbe entrance of the tunnel again.
And our condition was not improved
when the gas in the coal In one of the
chambers became ignited. We started
lor the door but George Levasseur and
Charley Armstrong were ahead of us,
und Hilly Keay was trying to climb a
support post. Theu a shot was fired in
tbe level above, and for a moment we atl
thought ibe end had come. When tbe
guide asked if we bad seen euough, there
was not a dissenting voice, aud uo time
wns lost In starting on the return trip.
So far as lhe writer is concerned he had
always been anxious to gee the inside
workings of a coal mine. We have seen
tbem, and tbat experience will satisfy us
if we live 99years from date. We would
not mind working an eight hour shift
with a coal company, but we would restrict the scene of our operations to tbe
company's office. No money could induce us to go into thedepths and dig the
coal, except by proxy.
Tbe Fernie.coal mlues are a big thiug
—greater, iu fact, tban the majority of
people realize. In No. I there are 5600
feet of tunnels, and in No. 2 there are
3400. The present capacity of the mines
at Fernie is 1400 to 1500 tons a day.
There are 312 coke ovens in operation,
with a capacity of 540 tons of coke per
day. There are building 126 more ovens
at Fernie and 400 at the Michel mine.
This will increase the coke capacity of
tbe company to 1400 tons per day. Tbe
pay roll this laat mouth at Fernie had
nearly 800 names, and the one at Michel
380, makiug a total of more tban 1000
men employed at thli time by the Crows
Nest Coal company. The amount of
money paid out in Fernie alone last
month fur wages was 36,000.
During the past few mouths the orders
for coke bad been cut down in West
Kootenay. General Manager Wilson
stated that the company was pushing the
improvements as rapidly as possible, aud
would put forth every effort to meet the
demands ofthe British Columbia mnrket.
Feruie is going to be a great towu. It
will be the coal mining metropolis of
South East Kootenay, and to predict a
population of 8000 or 10,000 for the town
in the next five yean ia not wild dreaming by any means. Tbere is wealth
enough In the hills about Fernie to keep
thousands of men employed for many
years to come, and Tbe Herald is pleased
to see the wonderful progress the town is
making.

OTHER MININO   NEWS OF   INTEREST
A special meeting of tlie Hoard of
Trade was held last evening to meet
with W. W. llt-aton, of Kaslo, and discuss the advisability of seudiug Craubrook delegates to Ottawa to work upou
tiie members of parliament for certain
legislation for tbe benefit of British Columbia. It is expected that a large delegation from tbe Kootenays and the
Boundary country will leave some time
next week.
Tiie meeting was a large one. W. T.
Reid, vice president, was iu the chair.
After aunouueiug the object of the meeting, he culled upon Mr. Beaton, who explained tbe object of his mission aud
asked the board to appoint delegates for
tbe occasion.
Charles IL Wolfe, of the Sullivan
mine, was next called upon. Mr. Wolfe,
iu a few minutes, gave more solid information than has been thrown out in the
ssme length of time in Cranbrook for
mauy a day. He spoke of tbe necessities ofa refinery in Canada, and tbat iu
fact tbat wus the only salvation left for
the lead industry of the province,
Talks were made by Messrs. Ryan,
Haines, Lund, Moif-.it and others. It
was finally decided to appoint a committee to consider the matter, such committee to report at a meeting to be held this
evening in tbe sample room of the Cranbrook hotel. The following persons
were named on the committee: James
Ryan, W. T. Ueid. G, H. Gilpin, W. F.

A vote was tuken during the meeting
und the expression was unanimously in
favor ofa lead refinery being established
iu Canada aud a bounty being paid.

Denver Ledge: Mining is a legitimate
busiuess, aud properly conducted it pays
rich dividends. It also affords dishonest
men a grand opportunity to rob those
who are always eager to bite at a bright
hook, without knowing whether the bait
is gilt or gold. During tbe Rossland
boom many wild-cat companies became
alive, and flooded tbe east with fancy
stock certificates. Thousands wbo could
not tell a winze from a hole in tbe roof
bought a few yards of paper with the
expectation of making easy money out
of their neighbors, or by dividends when
the mine turned out its millions. Mosl
of these people had never learned that
gamblers prey upon the cupidity of tbe
human race and win their money by
dexterity, Their desire for gold led
them to part with their wealth, and the
sharks grew fat. Neither of these classes
are a benefit to any mining camp. One
is a thief and the other a fool. One produces nothing out of lhe ground and the
other condemns all miuing ventures because of the bite tbat smarts.
Mismanagement often ruins mines, as
well as stock jobbing thieves. Now and
again we bear of properties closing down
because they cannot pay their debts, aud
uiany a good property gels a black name
in this way. There is uo occasion for
anything but legitimate mining in
Kootenay. We bave billions of wealth
awaiting the light of day for tbose who
have the money and energy to dig for it.

Tbe follow is from a report made by
Managing Director Drewry on the p 1
year of the Canadian Gold Fields syt di-
cnte, regarding tbe St. Kugene, one of
its best properties:
Tbe St. Kugene Consolidated Mineral
company, ltd., has entered tbe list of
dividend payers, and bas declared and
paid a dividend of one hundred aud five
thousand dollars, fur the quarter ending
December .;iht 1900, This amounted to
three per cent, ou its capitulizatlon, our
share ofthe dividend being $ 19,200,00.
At the end of 1900, the issued capital of
our company was Jtioo.ooo.oo, leaving
shares of the per value of |40O'o00,ooitt||
unissued iu the treasury ol the company.
In November last, tbe board of directors
declared a first quarterly dividend of
three per ceut, on the issued capital
stock of our company, being at the rate
of twelVfe per cent, per annum on the
par value ofthe shares. This dividend
has been declared and paid.
Tbe St. Kugene Consolidated is now
equipped with a concentrating mill of a
daily capacity of four hundred tons,
being double ibe size of any other concentrating mill in Canada. Tbe properly is 10 well developed Unit Ihere is
now considerable over two years ore
supply blocked out iu sight, nnd new ore
reserves are being steadily developed
Tbe St.   Kugene Consolidated  is uow
shipping fiom 2,500 to 3000 tons of
silver-lead concentrates per month, and
besides earning and paying a dividend
of three per cent, per quarter, has alarge
ctisb surplus on baud.

Ftuta Fort Steele rrus-ieecor.
It   is   reported that a stamp mill and
drilling   machines   will   be installed ou
a Uoulder creek property this summer.
Arrangements have been completed
towards tbe beginning of extensive
operations 011 tbe Nip & Tuck placer
claim ou Wild Horse creek.
Tbe management of the Kstella mine
show a commendable enterprise iu tbe
manner in which tbey have developed
the propeity. The right men are in the
right place, and a splendid start bas
been made towards making tht property
a payiDg mine.
Supt. Olson of the Cdilu-nate King
miue, states that tbe property is looking
better than it has done any time hereto-fore. The tunnel te now in no feet.
There is no question but that there is a
large body of rich ore in the Carbonate
King.
A considerable interest is being
aroused at Fort Steele owing to the report that the Invicta placet mines will
be worked thi.; mtntuer,
Mni.nj Notes.
W. A, Clarke   the Montoua mining
man,    will   produce    about     1,000,000
pounds of coppei rrom  bis  Uutle properties this month,
Tbere will be a great deal of prospecting in South Kasl Kootenay tbis season.
Tbere is still prospecting on the
Anchor mine, and the properties are increasing each week.
There is no doubt that South Bait
Kooteuay in five years time will l>e one
of the best kuowu mining districts in
British Columbia.
A district with such mines as the St.
Kugene, Norlh Star atul Sullivan is
bound to be a Lig winner as the years
roll by. There are many other propel ties
to be developed.
It is possible the Mineral Act will be
amended so is to require i-.-it.t-is of
mineral claims to do ten feet of work
and find mineral in place before being
allowed to record, and that ninety days
will be allowed liu tu to do ibis.

A    roUCIt   OF   TRUTH.
There Is a vast amount of sentimental
nonsense being written these davs
about tbe Urge gifts recently made by
Andrew Carnegie, Some papers are
characterizing him as tbe world's greatest philanthropist, and are elevating
hlm in tbeir eipressloa of opinion to a
position but little less tban that of a
god. It Is true tbat he has been lavish
In bis gifts, but Andrew Carnegie stands
today as one of tbe greatest beneficiaries of a system that has taxed the
masses to enrich the classes. He was
at tbi bead of a company tbat made
125,000,000 In a year, and this vast sum
was made by tbe manufacture cf steel
under a tariff tbat virtually killed competition In that line In the United
States. The people were taxed to the
limit to maintain these inordinate profits that turned millions Into the pockets
of one man each year. Why shouldn't
be give away hundreds of thousands '
He has advocated this system of tariff
and used bis great wealth and i tluence
to keep It ou tbe statute books. These
millions he bas filched from the people
by Imposing unjust burdens on their
shoulders, should turn b. ck from whence
tbey came. Philanthropist! Bab'. His
conscience bas found him out, and If
giving unheard of donations to hospitals,
libraries and churches in bis old age
will square bimself with the Lord before he dies, he proposes to do it. No
wonder he says chat the man wbo dies
rich, dies disgraced.
It Is well enough to tell tbe truth once
In awhile, even If you are referring to
men of great wealth.
What Canada needs just now are members In parliament wbo do not think
that tha western bonndry Una of the
Domlaton Is where tbe iua drops behind
the Rocky mountains. Anything for the
promotion of the east is enthusiastically
supported; but let lt be a movement foi
the development ol tha great resources
of tha west, and there foi owe a lino of
objections that would make a well man
sick. Eastern statesmen need more
knowledge of tbe wast, and what the
resources of tba west mean to the whole
Dominion whin developed.
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
Reports say that If DeWet surrenders
he will ba sentenced to death. Under
the circumstances DeWet will probably
keep on fighting.
Tbe Herald's suggestion In reference
to the formation of an editorial association for tbe papers of the Interior Is
meeting with general approval. The
neat thing; Is to do something.
Grover Cleveland Is tha only ex-presi
dent of the United States living.
Some of the teachers of Vancouver
receive a salary as low as 8.JU per
month. Vancouver should be ashamed
of this. Chinamen ought to haye a good
chance ln a town that would do tbat.
Tha Kaslo Kootenaian calls the wife
of Mayor Carlson, of that town, the

The vote at Kaslo for the 950,000
bonus for the smelter was unanimous.
Emperor William was hit In the face
recently by a piece of iron thrown by a
crasy subject. If tbe Kaiser had spent
a few years trying to collect subscriptions on a weekly paper Id the Koote

like a pick off of a block of granite.
Phoenix has gotten rid of all the
Chinese and Japs that had located In

It Is customary In England and her
colonies to deliver a formal prayer foi
tbe King, and tn tbe United Statea the
majority of the churches nave a prayer
for tbe president. It Is about time a
prayer was promulgated In both countries for the country editors with poor
ly paid circulations.
Mr, Caroegie will get away with all
hla cash before Craabrook gets In witb
her request, unless the town gets a
bump on herself. We have no desire to
knock out Bert Beattie's circulating
library of two-bit novels, but lt would
he pleating to see a big bunch of cash
dropped Into tha town.
In tbe death of Ex-Preildent Harrison
laat week tha United States lost one ol
Its ablest men. Mr. Harrison waa a
growing man. Possessed of a kean Intellect, a broad mind, and an Independent political spirit, ha refused to be
dictated to by lobbyists and politicians
while present, and came out of his ofllce
a much bigger man tban when he went
ln. It Is a pity that a man of hii ability
should have died whea he did. His
couaiel was valuable and when he spoke
oo national affairs, his words were Invariably words of wisdom. The United
States could illy afford to lose him just
at this time.	
Rev. Holford, of the Baptist church,
preached recently on the subject "Is

newspaper. One who works In the

Tba latter specie are numerous and are

In,t|»iu  hiiIV  ami  Btaudlnff  wheii  the
coin Is nil carried nway to iho Darn,
,*^i) \vlien Mr. Harvest-Mouse began to
talk    to    Mrs.    Harvest-Mouse    ubOUt
ivheru to build tbgr home she begged
llim to choose the loug, stilt grnss in
the hedge bottom (rattier thnn the corn
In the Held. That la how it happened
tlmt their tiny nest waa built between
lhe grnss Bteius, and they built It very
eunnlugly of narrow binges and bits of
feather or nny soft nnd hendluB stuff
that they could llnd. and they lixed
them all In such a clever way that nl
Inst u wee round nest no bigger than a
cricket bull was fixed hi*:ti up among
the stiff green stalks as if It grew there
hy Itself. It wits soft nnd light and
very thin, so the summer nir blew gently through ami kept It nicely ulred.
The taller grasses standing round
about Ithl it from tlie hawks, and a little bindweed then grew up and helped
them. It twined around the stems ami
twisted Its tendrils from one to another. Mien hung Its tiny hells about und
made a merry garden nenr the nest.
Mt*. Hm*vest-Mouse was very pleased
when all was done and felt happier
still when eight little baby mice were
BllUg and safe inside.   They fitted Into
tlm soft, round bnll quite perfectly,
Which shows how wee they were.
And now through the hot summer
days, while Mrs. Harvest-Mouse was
busy with the children. Mr, Harvest-
Mouse wns running here and there collecting news for his wife and tiles and
oiher fooil for himself and for his family. What a gay, clever, little mouse
he was. and ns for her. she wns (he
quickest, daintiest little lady In the
bind, and she taught her children to be
quick uml dainty too. .She also taught
them to be good, though what she
would hnve done had they been
nutigtity I cannot fell, for there wns
not n corner In the bouse to stand them
In.
Kite ran nimbly all about the outside
of the nest, nml when the little ones bo-
gun to hite ouch other's tails l'«>r fun
sin* putted gently through ilu* open network of the walls and told them bow
their loug tails would be useful when
they came to climb the tall, stiff grasses In the green and mazy world of the
hedge bottom where they lived. Ami
the bindweed quite rigrced in what she
said, for it knew tbe value of a tall to
bold by.
Ono wnrm eveniug the little mother
pat on the top of her little round bouse,
while Mr. llnrvest-Mou.se was chatting
with a neighbor iu tbe,corn, close by.
nnd then II was she told the children a
great deal uhout tlio ir-ftHd. she told
them bow us sbe sat tbeie she could
see the green grass blades bending over
Iter and a sweet bindweed bell swing
gently under tbe weight of a bumble
bee. She said tbnt fat* away, quite high
Bliove tbe bindweed bells, quite high
above the grass blades In tbe bodge
bottom, even higher than the corn,
there wns blue, blue sky. She could
see patches of it now as she looked up
through their tangled screen.
The tiny mice inside the nest got restless at the very thought of that, and
they nsked ber to get u bit and poke it
through for them to see.
"Votl silly, silly ones," she snid, "there
ntt- great things that you cannot understand in the big world, aud oue of them
Is the blue, blue sky. It Is only to look
nt. not to touch, nnd some duy you will
barn that it conies with the sunshine
and goes when It rains. A lark once
teld me that he loved It even more than
lln* green world, for though the sweet
grass cools his breast nnd holds bis
lirst and his little on-as, yet the blue,
blue sky Is quite full of Joy ami gnoH
far up above the farmhouse smoke and
above the hawks nnd Is wider thnn the
widest Held, nnd though be were to
slug his heart out from dewy dawn to
sunset he could never (itl it nil wilh
uii!-i'*. Uh. the big blue sky Is very
wide. Indeed, and very fnr nway, as
you will see one day when you are
strong nnd quite grown up."
Jnst then a gunt flew l.y. and .Mrs.
Harvest-Mouse Sprang up ami caught
it and gave It to tbe children Jbrougb
the wall, for t!:oo<!li she talked uhout
the sky she knew tbnt they were hungry and saw tbe trruit und entiirht It
cleverly.
And now thnt the suu wns getting
Ion* she talked ubout lhe winter. Sbe
said as surely o^ Ibe night came on
when the daylight died awny so surely
wonld the winter come when suinmei
time wns ended.
What could ibe winter be? tbe children thought, nud one wee mouse Hindi
bold ti> Bny be did not enre, nud It
mlghl come nny time for bim. lie had
Just caught nud eaten a tiny tty ihnl

His mother gave a pnt where Iii- Iiiih* .or showed pink between the urns*.
oa umi silenced ull his silly talk at onco
nud then went on lo tell how tbe winter wus as far beyond their thinking us
the blue, blue sky was high nhovo their
bends.
"The wnrm, soft wind lhat rings our
bindweed bells," she said, "ami makes
sweet music lu the gross will turn to
cold and bitter bloats that will blon
the leaves about, uml then the bells
will wither one by one and full away,
and Ihe grasses will turn quite dull uud
dry and rub against each other with n
shrill nnd fearsome sound an tbe wind
sweeps up along the hedge bottom."
At thnt the little mouse, whose ear
was tingling still, felt frightened, aud
he quivered w^ilu bis mother lulkeil
and wondered what would come of It.
Slu* knew Just how be felt, nud now
she gave bim comfort tind ndvlce about
thc future, and she told them nil whnt
they must do. "For," said sbe, "the
-winter Is too grent and Btroug for tiny
creatures like ourselves, uml so while
the big world and the hedge bottom nre
heating the cold weather we mny sleep
quite peacefully, encb In a liny bole,
until the winter time Is over aud the
Summer comes ngnin. You uiunt seek
your boles when the right time comes
nml then be tyife to curl your tulls well
in to keep thein from the frost,"
They nil squeaked a Iittle promise to
remember what she sold ami not think
they knew better, and then tbey whispered softly to encb other uf the grenl
world and the sky ami the winter time

The UriHiii of the Key.
Some smnll article hnd been lost—1
forget now what, let us sny a key—belonging to one of two sisters who were
traveling together. It could nowhere
be found, ltut one night one of the sisters dreamed tlmt she saw the key In
ihe pocket of ber traveling bag. She
told this dream on waking to the other.
"And have you looked In the pocket';"
the sister asked. ''No, I have not,"
snid sbe, "for tbe very good reason thai
there Is no pocket lu my traveling
bag." "Well," said tbe other, "tbere is
a pocket In mine. 1 will Just have a
look there on tbe chniieo." And there
the key was found.
The inference Is thnt tho drenmer
hnd seen witb the eye of sens*?, though
not with the eye of observation, the
key put Into the pocket. Even when the
key wns so found she had no recollection of seeing it placed ihere, but tlie
brain hnd tm con scion.-.l.v recorded the
sensation. In course of sleep Ir bad
stumbled on tbnt record, nud by good
luck the sleeper on awaking chanced
to remember the mental operation tbut
luid tnken place during sleep. It Is.a
singular and almost n Infra tag reflection
tbnt our brains are stored with countless sueli records of which we kuow

The St. Patrick's Day Cancert Was Very
Largely At leaded.
The ladies of St. Marys church have
the reputation of doing the proper thing
when they attempt an entertainment,
amlua result they invariably make a
success of their efforts. The St. Patrick's day concert given last Monday
night wu not an exception. It was an
aitiatic and financial success, The hall
was crowded to its utmost capacity and
the generous applause throughout gave
evidence of the hearty appreciation of
tbose present.
John R. Costigan presided and tbe
people of Craubrook bave gotten Into
the habit of looking for something good
when Mr. Costigan talks. They were
not disappointed on this occasion. He
referred to the death of the Queen and
the progress of the English empire during the past year, and then added a few
Irish aide thr ists that brought down
the house.
The Instrumental tnuiic and singing
was exceptionally good, and the minuet
danced by the young people who had
been trained by Mrs. Halton, was an
attractive feature of tbe program. The
hit of the evening was made by little
Dorothy McVittie and Willie Doble, the
diminutive couple that brought forth

A BIjc Meat Pirn.
M. Mclnnes & Co. are enlarging their
business in South Kast Kootenay and
western Alberta, They have acquired
the busiuess at Macleod, and will probably open two or three more places
along the Crows Nest Pass railway thia
summer. Owing to the extent of their
business and the immense amount of
meat they use, they bave expended vast
sums in cold storage plants and refrigei
ators, so that they are able to keep their
beef in the best of condition during the
hot summer months. This, of course, ia
an important feature, and quite naturally ia taken into consideration by the
people of this district.
Fred Smyth and His Shirt.
Fred Smyth, of the Moyie Leader, is
getting fame on account of the write-up
The Herald gave his shirt. The Lethbridge news, copying the same, says :
II it were not well known that all
editors go to heaven—in consequence of
the trials and tribulations to which they
are subjected while ou thia mundane
sphere, and above which they rise superior through their innate patience, good
nature and modesty,—one would be inclined to conclude from the above that
Bro. Smyth was acclimatizing himself
for the temperature of the region below
to which it is said all delinquent sub-
scribscribers are consigned.
Likes the Idea.
Slocan Drill: The Cranbrook Herald
suggests the formation of an editorial
association among the papers of the interior of the province. By all means get
the idea into practical shape. In these
days of combines, there is no reason -w by
the quill-pushers should not get together
once in a while to advance their own interests, swap tales of misery, and plan
new schemes for revenge on the delinquent subscribers.
A Sweeplof Order.
Dubuque, Iowa, March 9.—The superintendent of the Dubuque division ofthe
Chicago Great Western Railway Com
pany has issued a sweeping order to employes which has caused a sensation.
It prohibits in effect, tbem using intoxicating liquor iu auy form, or at any time.

foremen and others who hold responsible positions with the company, it prohibits them from entering saloons or
using liquor, whether on or offduty, and

A Word of Thanks.
Tbe ladles of the Catholic church desire to extend their thanks lo Mrs,
Halton, Mr. CoBtlgan, Mrs. Costigan,
Mrs. Kennedy and A. L. McDermott for
their valuable assistance in arranging for
the concert. Father Ouellette also desires to extend bis thanks to the people
of Cranbrook for their liberal patronage
of the entertainment.
Tic Wasa Bridie.
N. Hanson haa completed tbe new
bridge acroaa the Kootenay river at
Wasa. The finishing of tbe bridge was
celebrated by a banquet to those who
did the work, and of course the event
waa a success. There was quite a crowd
present, and N. Hanson, the host, did all
in his power to make the occasion a
pleasant one.
The bridge is a credit to Mr. Hanson's
enterprise, and is one that tbe government should take conttol of without delay, aa it bas long been needed.
Hats Off, Please.
The system of taking off hats has beeu
pretty generally adopted by the ladies of
Craubtnok when they attend an entertainment at the hall.    It la to he hoped
Why Col. Sleele Qoes Back.
Toronto World: It is quite within the
probabilities that Lieut Col. Steele will
succeed Baden-Powell in the command
ofthe entire South African Constabulary,
and that before very long. There is talk
here of Steele's being appointed to tbe
command of a mounted infantry regiment which it ia proposed to raise and
maintain in the Northwest; but it is
doubtful, even if made such an offer, that
he would accept It, The action of the
government in passing Lieut.-Col. Steele
over In the appointment ofa commissioner of ihe Northwest Mounted Police,
simply because he was on active service
for the empire when Col. Herchmer was
deposed, makes It doubtful if he would
care to live in Canada,
' that all will follow tbe example set by   reduced.
