8 BY THK OLD MAN £
In one of hi. letters from a "Self-
Made Merchant to His Son," OtorgO
Loriemrr hits the nail an the head, .
incideulUUy gives the reason why
many young men fail. He says: Hoys
are constantly writing me for advice
about how to sneeed, and when I Kent!
them my receipt tbey say that I am
dealing out commonplace generalities
Of course I am, but that's what the
receipt calls fur, and if a boy will Ukr
these commonplace generalities and
knead Ifaetn into his job, the mlilure'il
lie cake. Once a fellow's got the primary busineas virtues cemented Into his
character, he's a safe to build on. Hut
when ■ clerk crawls into tbe ollice In the
morning like a sick tetter pup, and leaps
from hia stool at night with the spring
of ■ tiger, I'm ■ little afraid that if I
sent him to take charge of a branch
house he wouldn't always be around
when customers were. He's the sort ol
a cbnp who would hold back the sun au
hour every morning Hnd have it gain
two every afternoon If tbe Lord would
give him the same discretionary powers
that He gave Joshua. And I bave noticed that lie's the fellow who invniiably
takes a timekeeper as an Insult. He's
pretty numerous in business offices; lu
fact, if the glance of the human eye
could atTect a clock face tne same way
tbat a man's country cousins tilled
their city welcome, I should have to
buy a now timepiece for the office every
morning,

A man working for the C. P. R. in

favornble terms, but so far as known
very few contracts have been concluded
and tnese only for stn.ill lots. It is
stated that the smelter men now effer
the mine owners the option of taking
spot cash for their ore or the -go-day
settlement. The latter plan was formerly insisted on and the mining men
think they can new insist on exceedingly favorable terms, consequently they
refuse for the most part to close with
the offers now being made and lhe ore
buyers are In a dilemma.
"At the commencement of lhe year
London lead was quoted at /'io or
thereabouts, nnd it has uow gone to

cent lead, ibe last quotation menus tbat
tbe mine owner can now get $5-83 per
ton more for his ore than be could have
obtained early in January, or an increase
of Hi cents per hundred pounds.
"It is claimed uver)tbe border that the
rise ln lead is peifeetly legitimate and
that It is based on the existing supply
aud demand. The idea that the tariff
question at Ottawa has anything to do
with tbe rise is laughed at by some of
our mining men who scout the idea us
preposterous."

The Kootenay Valleys company have

Points (or Investors.
Investors in mining shares should always remembar that the par value of a
company's shares cut no figure witb nn
investment whatsoever.
Tbere Is no teat diffetenc between a
company organiz d for 1,0 0,000 shares
par value 81 00 each, in which you can
purchase shares at to cents, and a company incorporated for 100,000 $100
shares, for which you must pay 81 uo a
share. Neither will there be any difference iu the per cent you will receive on
your investment in dividends.
Always figure your percentage or dividends on the price for which you purchase shares, not on the par value ol
the shares. Don't forget, please, tbat a
large capltal'zation does not mean a
valuable property, aud more lhan a
small capital means a less valuable property.
Do not invest in any mining stock
other than treasury shares—at least
while Ibe properly is under develop
ment. If you do your money goes into
the pockets of the promoter, instead of
into the treasury of the compauy from
which the work is carried ou to make a
mine.
Before investing in any stock first ascertain tbe standing of the fiscal agent*),
then lhe officers, as a great deal depends
upon the ability and integrity of those
ln charge. ' out of course don't stop
here. Get as near as you can a report
from some disinterested person on the
holdings and locality of the company
operations.

AM; MANY CHANGES SINCE ITS BIRTH
The Town Has Grown From a
Population of About 30
to Over 1700.
A QKEU TOWN WITH A (IIHiAT  FUTURE
A Deserving Miner.
All of lhe old timers In the district
know Colonel George Dougherty,
wbo came into South Kast Kootenay in
the early 60s, A cortuspondent of the
Spokesman-Review, writing of tbe old
mau, says:   .
The colonel deserves a great deal of
credit for the maimer ln which he haa
stuck to bis calm on Wild Horse creek,
having driven, without assistance, an
incline tunuel 120 feet deep on the ledge
not to speak of some 40 feet of crosscuts,
Thia work has shown up a large body of
New Line to Spokane.
Naturally the people of Cranbrook,
and tbe whole district in fact, are much
interested iu the proposed railroad that
la to be built from Spokane to the
Boundary line In Idaho, to connect with
tbe C. P. It. some where near Vahk.
Ex-Senutor George Turner, who is
associated with I) C. Corbiu, in
the building ot this load, has just returned from Washington to Spokane,
and speaking of tbe new line, snld:
"All the finances for tbe road have
heen arranged, and no stock will be
offered locally. It is generally surmised
that the Canadian Pacific is behind the
company, but I am not prepared to
make any statement as regards that.
We have bad a reconnaissance of the
route made hy two engineering parties.
It strikes northeast from Spokane to lhe
Kootenay river and follows the Moyie
river Irom the point where it empties
into the Kootenay to the Canadian line.
The construction nf the 148 miles will
lake about 18 months "
This Inmie of the Herald Hoses its flflh
year. Time flies. It seems hardly possible that it has been five years since II.
T. Ilrowu and lhe present proprietor Issued tbe Urat number of Tbe Herald-
Many changes have taken place siuce.
The population of the town was about
30, nnd there were two hotels and no
stores, although several parties were
arranging to get iu their stocks. There
was not a building 011 the hilt except
the Dtker homestead, two log cabins
and John Hutchison's barn.
Pive years is a long time to publish a
newspaper in a pioneer town. The editor has chronicled the arrival aud departure of people, the changes in business, the evidences of growth and prosperity, births, deaths and marriages,
and a thousand and one events that go
to make up the life of 0 community or
this character. He bas made friends,
good, staunch friends, the kind that will
stay with him when he needs them. He
has also made enemies. But in looking
backward he feels that the enemies he
has made bave been due to causes be
has no reason to regret The Herald
has never been used by the editor to
give vent to personal spite, nor has he
allowed any other person to use it for
tbat purpose. It has tried to be fair
and honest in tbe treatment of all questions, and do what it could in a bumble
way to promote the best interests of the
town ami the people. It bas made mistakes in the past aud will make mistakes tn the future, simply because the
editor is human. But It will continue
to do the best it can, and remain independent of any clique or faction, free to
express Its views on questions and conditions, without dictation from any man.
The Herald is a part and parcel of
Cranhrook, and it believes that Cranbrook today, from any and every point
of view, Is tbe best town in eastern
Rrilish Columbia, with a future tbat
should satisfy every man Interested in
the place. It would urge a unity of
feeling among the people and concerted
action on all matters tbat promise public good. It is sucb a condition that
has brought success In the past to Cranbrook and it will insure even greater
prosperity iu the future.

Pernio Free Press: Un Tuesday tba
scft condition of the weather started
some slidea on the Crows Nest line between tbe tunnel and Ibe summit, A
snow plow was sent down at noon and
managed to get through but the loosened snow at once filled up the track
again. The plow was sent back to open
it again for the evening express but the
latter found it impossible to get through
and left Michel for tbe west next morning. A freight train tried to get through
from lhe west on Tuesday night and
got stuck about a mile east of the tunnel.
The Wednesday morning express was

The storm wns ibe worst the trainmen
had experienced iu years, it tasted uu
til Thursday forenoon and during thit
lime little could be accomplished aa the
drifting snow filltd up the track that
had been cleared. During tbe rest of
Thursday aud lhe following night the
plows assisted by a force of nearly 100
men succeeded In opening up tbe line
again and establishing traffic. Tlie
slitles extended nearly all the way from
lhe tunnel to Crows Nest. The largest
were several hundred feet In length with
a depth of about twelve leet. Superintendent Jamieson was in the blockade
all the time and personally directed the
work- The men had an uncomfortable
time of it and many bad no sleep during
the three nights.
A smaller slide occurred this side of
Spar wood on Wednesday and a freight
was stuck In the snow there until relieved by tbe plow returning on Ptiday

"Going down':"
Of course, everything wns golug
flown from the stockB hu had bought
last week to the hope of ids heart The
stocks might rise if lie held them long
enough, The liopo ol bis heurt wus np-
pnii'iitiy dashed iii'vonii remedy, Marlon Willis hnd effected thu latter catastrophe In n few words, cutting to
the point of lilttt'iiii'ss Tbey had been
engaged three bllsBfttlly short months,
nml now—
There were moving vans at the front
door. The Information offered by his
ulster that tho Willis family were going to tiie country u mouth earlier than
usual tilii'i! bitn with dreary dUmny,
The Willises were going buck to Buy
Ridge, of course. Tlmt wits where he

and Marlon lnul played tenuis nnd golf
together for two euasous, Lie had been
tempted to propose to her on the buy
Itself one moonlight night, but Marlon
was nervous and would not permit hia
Jithiiitii.il lo stray from bundling the
tiny sailboat. And tlicit lie had put off
the proposal week after week. He felt
Bomehow that such n momeut came
but once into n man's life, and he
dreaded to think of the duy when the
tender anticipations would be a thing
of the past. Now ho almost wished he
had let it end in happy dreams, for the
reality was stern beyond description.
The cause of their trouble seemed
serious enough to Marlon, but from
Walter's mnscullne viewpoint lt was
ridiculously trivial.
The cousin of tils roommate at college was playing soubrotte roles lu
light opera. Simultaneously with the
arrival of her company lu Detroit came
a nolo from her cousin Iu New York
begging Fleming tu be "kind to the
kid" while she was lu town.
Fleming rood the letter through sev*
erol times nnd wondered what Im thc
world dear old Tom meant liy being
kind. He couldn't invite the girl tu
stop 1111 at the bouse because lt wus too
far irom the theater, and he had vague
ideas that ttientrlenl folk preferred to
flock together, Ills mother und sisters
should go to call, of cotir.se. Anyway,
he'd take Marlon the Hrst night Even
u busy soubrotto ought to appreciate the
opportunity ot mooting such a rarely
charming girl as Marlon, So he sent
"the kid" roses exactly like those
Mnrloti was lo weiii', and tlid not notice
the expression lu his llnucee's eyes
when tbe (lowers woro passed over tho
footlights. There was u llltle supper
niter ibe performance, chaperoned by
.Mrs, Fleming, nt which the little
actress wore a very plain black gown
wllh u very long train uud curried
Walter's roses,
The next day was set aside fur a
drive through the parks, followed by
luncheon at a fashionable cafe.   "Tha
kid," who had never BCCU the beautiful
city of Detroit beforo, waxed enthusiastic, but Marion remarked thut she
lnul an engagement and would liuve to
be excused, Mrs. Fleming, who wus a
busy woman, told ber son next morning
ut breakfast tbat an tictress did not
require * chaperon.
So the llllle Bouliiiotte, who was really
a ha nl wurk ing, ambitious artiste and
was likewise engaged to a young stockbroker in New York, "did" Detroit In
Waller's company for live brilliant
winter days. Tbey talked of tbelr respective llnnci'i'S anil each decided that
luckier mortals did not breathe. And
when Walter had done bis duty like a
man, oven to seeing the Utile actress
off 011 the midnight train for Minneapolis, be sighed relievedly and never
dreamed of the awful fate which his
next interview With Mnrion held for
bim.
There was only one floor between
him and the girl who wns leaving
town today with bitterness in her
heart, yot there seemed no way of
pass!tig tho barrier.
"Uu.ng down'/" yelled the elevator
1 oy,
Walter, hat fn hand, made a flush
for tlio corridor, As tho elevator door
bin mined stmt he found himself face to
face wllh Marion. She was pale, plainly tired from the exertion Incident tc
juovlii1,', but she looked over hia head
aa If her supply of self control was unlimited.
"Going down?"
"Oh, Charlie!"
The elevator stopped with a Jerk.
The voice came from Mrs. Madden's
room. She wub a semi-Invalid and a
privileged churacter In the Nassau.
Charlie tluug open the door and
crossed the hull. Mrs. Madden held out
a letter.
"And I wish you'd stop it Mrs. Turner's door aud ask her to come up thia
morning,"
"Yes'in," murmured Charlie, but as
he whirled round bis heurt throbbed
wildly. Tbe door of the elevator shaft
stood open, but thc elevator hud disappeared. Ue stured at the quivering cables.  It wns going down fast
In the meantime affairs In the elevator had taken a sudden turn. Marlon'**
face hnd gone u shade whiter us tbe
elevator without any warning began to
drop swiftly. It wus six floors at least
to the basement She raised frightened
eyes to Fleming's face.
"Can't you"—
"I might simply make tt worse If I
touched It It won't strike hard. Sit
down."
He pushed her gently Into the leather sent, then suddenly swung round
and threw himself on tbe lever. Thero
wus no response to his effort They
shot by start led faces on the second
lauding. Charlie's shrill screams echoed down the shaft. Fleming faced
the girl, A world of passionate pleading shone In her eyes.
"Walter, Walter, If we've got to die
I'm glud it's together."
His arms were about ber, end her
face wns hidden on his shoulder when
the crash came. For a few seconds
Fleming felt as If he hnd just rushed
thc center of a football team. Then
he opened his eyes and looked into
Marlon's unooiiBclous face.
"She loves me! She loves me!" he
whispered and kissed her colorless
lips. When tbe Janitor and a score of
frightened servants reached the scene,
Fleming had himself well In band.
"Miss Willis has fainted. Let me
take her out to the air, please."
That afternoon he dropped Into tbe
ofllee of the Nassau's superintendent
wbo com menced profuse apologies.
Fleming cut bim short
"1 want to speak to you about the
elevator boy—Charlie."
"Yes, yes—of course," responded the
superintendent. "We'll dismiss him at
once—will have a new boy on this
evening."
"That's just whnt I don't want done,"
Interrupted Fleming, "The boy was
not to blame."
"Rut It's against the rules for bim to
leave his ear," murmured the astonished superintendent "This Is a matter of discipline."
"Confound your discipline," said
Fleming good naturedly, "Have the
elevator overhauled. It needs It but
don't you monkey with Charlie's job;
that Is, if you value the Fleming family as tenants. I am quite serious, and
I trust you'll see It this way."
"When Walker left his office, the superintendent picked up from hia desk
something that glittered and Jingled
merrily In his pocket against grosser
coins. Ills eyes weft opened, as Fleming had hoped, but be never saw the
real reason till tbe cards came out for
tbe Flemlng-WIIIIs wedding. Then he
could only guess.

U Thii  tke Amerli-mn  Wllef
Dut the American wife? Henry
Jiiini'8 has summed up the American
wife fn jiint one sentence. He says,
"The American wife knows nothing of
her hitsbnml's affairs, except that they
are of not the slightest consequence."
This Is both epigrammatic and exactly
true. The American wife has quits
a genuine affection for her husband.
Even after years of marriage have
gone by she thinks of him with on-
affected friendliness. He Is so useful!
She credits him wltb almost sll tbe
virtues, except perhaps the virtue of
being Interesting, and she overlooks
that one defect of his with charitable
tolerntlon. She sees him come and
go each day with clocklike regularity.
She vaguely knows whnt his profession or vocation is. She thinks better
of him If It Is a profession or vocation
that Is generally regarded as quite
creditable. But this la practically all
sbe knows or cares about It—Alnslee'i.

I'runk Jameson hud ti*u*ii to laugh
flown hia pretty Bister's vehement pin-
teats. He had even declared it was nil
Jui' to hor slsti'ily Ji'iilmmy. hut nnw ns
hi' rushed toward Now Vurk, the homo
of his Doncee, the words rung in his
par nml Btood out boldly on the paper
lu> was trying to read.
| Ho lived over again that Inst evening
In New York, wheu ho had naked Bee-
'ilo Whitney to he bis wife. He recalled wiih ti sudden pang how quietly
his proposal had been received.    Then
bo bad thought it wns because- Bessie
was deeply impressed by the seriousness of the moment Now he wondered
If it wero true that sbe did not feel the
Jifp passion that thrilled IiIb whole
being when she hnd whispered thut
almost Inaudible "yes," tbat she wus
Indifferent
He tossed aside his pit per impatiently and glanced carelessly at his traveling companion. A middle aged man,
Clearly a stranger to his section of the
country, he leaned forward eagerly to
study the scenery. Jameson regarded
the intense expression with some
amusement. Here wns something to
divert his unhappy trend of thoughts.
"Perhaps you'd like to sit next to the
rindow," he suggested. "Pretty country along here, especially If you're interested in funning."
The stranger looked at Frank In
surprise. The unexpected courtesy
luiiMbow suddenly curried htm west
of the Alleghany  mountains.
"Thanks; don't mind If I do," bt
answered henrtily. "I'm interested lu
forming all right Got as Une a quarter section neur Sterling, Minn., as
ever you saw."
'•Sterling? Why, 1 know a fellow
out there, Jimmy Eckstrom—was ln
my class at college."
"EekstroiuV Oh, yes; there Is an
Eckstrom lives about two miles south
of Sterling. Their boy go to school
with you'("
With this entering wedge, their ac*
qunlntnuce broadened rapidly. Before Jersey City wus reached Jameson hud heard all about the pioneer
struggles of John Wilson of Sterling
nnd Mr. Wilson hnd been given somo
vnluable  pointers  us  to   what  sight*

seeing desiTvoii tils at ten tion nn this
till mat vi.it to the iiu'trnpnlts Aa
tbey Una ill ml the ferryboat Wilson
remarked that bo guessed he'd stop
ill UroWII A. lot.ru'. .Iiiini'soii smiled.
Ion, lie knew wliere Ith)Wil \ Jones'
WOI, and he'd be nnly  loo «-■■•■ to too
that Wilson reached there safely.
Wilson, cheap satchel in hand, was
making straight for the cabin marked
"Men."
"Better take the other side," suggested Jameson, pointing to the indies'
cabin, "Vott'll get u better view oi the
harbor."
They had no! walked half the length
of the cabin before Jameson realined
Hint they were attracting attention.
They wero nn oddly assorted couple,
the stoop shouldered westerner In his
"store clothes" nnd rusty slouch hat
nnd the dnpper New Yorker chid In
inlment of London cut Jameson
looked neither to the right nor left
but felt conscious that amused feminine gluuces were following their
progress.
What followed never wonld have
happened, bo Jnmesoti declares. If. on
thut particular day, Ueorge Itnymond
hnd not worn a red tie. But Ueorge
pud the tie appeared on tbe scene Just
as Jameson was posting Wilson on tbe
location of the statue or Liberty, He
chipped Jameson on the shoulder and
exclaimed:
"Where In the world have you been
the lust four or live daya? I've been
down to the ollice half a dozen times,"
Jameson acknowledged the greeting,
then turned to Introduce the westerner
whom Georgo was regarding curiously.
"Ur. Wilson kM>v» ths Eckstromsat
Sterling, George.   You remember Jimmy Eckstrom?"
"Sure," answered George, feeling absently In his pocket as If he had suddenly remembered something. "Sny.
Prank, loun me a quarter, will you? i
haven't a cent of change, and I want
to run up on the '1,.'   Or, better still.
j change this twenty for me."
"Can't do it, old mau.   You kuow ale*
I tori don't do a   thing to their older
brothers who gu home fur a visit.  I'er*
I hnpH Mr, WHnhii ii.-i.. might ohllge."
Hut   Mr.   Wilson   suddenly   stopped,
Clutched   his   bug   nnd   edged   rnpidly
' away froHl the two young men.   When
, be lltld placed ii good His feet between
I them uud himself, be cTi'liilmed loudly*.
"No,  you  duii'lt    I've heerd of you
bUUkO Steeretl before.    1 ain't iiRKret-n
us I look.    You don't Hhort ehunge me.
1 rend the papers, I do.    Know Jimmy
] El-list nun, do you?   t'gh!"
With flushed cheeks und blazing eyes
| Juiiiesoii    tried    to    e,\plain    uialters.
George   roared   with   laughter,   His
| mirth added fuel to the flumes of Wilson's wrath, and he nguln raised bis
I voice in vigorous protest.
Deckhands, accompaiiled by a plain
clothes man, suddenly appeared.
I    "What's this?" demanded ths detec-
I tlve.
|    "Trying to shor* change, bunko me,"
yelled Wilson.   "There, see that fellow
holding that twenty dollar bill.   The
other une was in tbe scheme too."
|    The plain clothes man spoke quietly,
but firmly.
"You two'll have to go with me."
Jameson gasped.
"Go wliere?"
"To police headquarters."
The  boat  was  touching tbe  dock.
. The color fled from Jameson's face. Of
I course It was only an unpleasant mis*
' understanding.   He pulled out his card.
i The   detective   took   tt   and   smiled.
' Cards, even engraved ones, are cheap.
[ And there was tbe twenty dollar bill
In George's band.   Could better proof
be wanting?
Jameson was rapidly losing his temper.
"Well, I don't go a step. The old
may was mistaken. We can easily
Identify ourselves without going near
police headquarters."
An ugly look came Into tha detective's eyes,   Ue started to speak, when
from tbe curious throng around them
came the swish of feminine draperies,
and a small gloved hand was laid on
tha detective's arm.
"Muy 1 speak to you, please?"
Jameson whirled round to face Bessie Whitney!
I    Tbe detective frowned.   Ah, a eon-
' federate!   The young lady bunded bim
j a   card,  and   the  frown   faded.    He
| bowed obsequiously and turned aside,
not without keeping one eye on his
prospective prisoners, however.   Janie-
1 son  hesitated between Jumping over-
i board and knocking tbe detective down.
George   was  swearing  softly  at  tbe
westerner, and tbe crowd, craning to
see the finish of the little drama, was
pushing lis way to the pier.
<    When the detective turned, hit face
was wreathed in smiles.
I    "I guess this Is ii mistake.  The young
' man Morris Whitney's daughter's engaged   to   ain't   turning   confidence
| tricks."
He took the arm of the bewildered
westerner and walked toward the dock.
George started to tell Jameson what he
thought of the whole performance, but
Jameson was hurrying back through
the Indies' cabin. He bad seen n slender Utnre ln dark blue with her face
turned steadfastly toward th* Jersey
shore.
They were the last to leave the boat
ami thut night Jameson wrote to bis
sister:
"It's not always the sentimental girl
who's the bravest. There are two
kinds of sentiment, little sister, and
some day I hope you'll understand the
Suit Ihut Bessie bus and shown."

Scotia, he started on a cross-country
tramp, One exceedingly hot day he
applied ui a farm house for refreshments and his wanta were supplied by
au exceedingly pretty little girl of
ten years. The young mull lingered
with her as long ns possible and lu
niter years never forgot the incident.
Two vein's ago he tried lo find the
girl, tint ihc family had moved, no
one knew   whitiu-r ruining      from
Dawson two months ago Woodworth
met lhe joung woman on the train
nnd   they  speedil\   la-came      eiigagc.l.
tuit she refused to accompany him
north,    and     the Wedding he desired
was postponed imlcflnitely. Tnenco
Woodffprth went to Edmonton lo
transact soma business und ihenee
trawled in Fustern Canada, tie was
just starting wesl again when hu received  a   telegram  from  the      young
woman, Indicating ihut >h« would go
with him to Dawson City or anywhere else, tbe only limit being to
the ends of tbe earth,
So the young lawyer hurried westward He hnd no stop-over privilege
and so hu wired to a Calgary clergyman, who. with the bride, awaited
the overland on the station platform,
Tha ceremony was. speedily performed on tbu train to the enthusiastic
delight of the other Pullman passengers, uud Woori worth's lonely trip
was transferred Into the happiest or
