the day tbnt wink was started on its
first building. Aspect proprietor of The

of pleasure as well, lo watch closely mnl

minis of tbis paper, being endowed
with large perceptive faculties*., a keen
judge of human nnture, a man of action,

more than taking bim by the hand and
bidding him a God-speed wheu departing for the golden sands ol Cape Nome,
u ton of his friends resolved upon tendering him a farewell banquet in connection with celebrating the second anniversary of The Heraid, to take place
in the spacious dinlug-iooui of the Cosmopolitan hotel, and preparations were
instantly commenced. The capacity of
tlle dining ball was carefully estimated,
nnd invitations issued in accordance
Friday  night, as llie   Imnquelers   assembled and were uslieted inlo the hail,

Promptly on time the banqueters were
called to order by Chairman li. ti. Beat-

fraught with more oi less danger; peril-*
were not ended witb n safe arrival at tbe
Cape.      However,   lie,   wilh  nil   ollierB,
hoped for the best.   He spoke of Mr.
Simpson as be had found bun—as a man,
jod cttiseu, ami excellent newspnpai
inn; a man who always attended strictly lo bis business, fought for Cranbrook
in an honorable way first*, last nnd all of
the time; iu Mr. Simpson's departure
Craubrook would suffer a great, but, be
hoped, only temporary loss.

Cruubrook was born ol the tendency lo
draw party lines in piovinclal affairs.
The dangers orising from the adoption
of such a course is commented on edito-
lially in this issue.
A few weeks nyi) Mr. Lcltcll was BClil
to Vlctoila on'busintss concerning the
interests of Crunbiook 111 particular aud
.Suulheasl Kootenay iu general. All are
familiar with the leading incidents and
unfortunate delay on that, trip. However, Mr. l.eitch finally arrived nt his
der I inatiou iu safety, but owing to political complications then and still existing it was Impossible foi the authorities
in grant the relief sought for.
It 1.
idlng aid lo
ipltal in Cruubrook, au investigation revealed ibe fact thai all funds
which ijilght be made avnllahle for lliut
]i\u\i ISL', had beeu oveidiawu.
Mr. Leitch then leprcsenled that
there was itineh improvement and eon
sltuction of roads necessary in this vi
chilly, and suggested ibe government do
s/inu-ihiiiK in that Hue; an investigation
of the standing of ibe fund for such purposes provided revealed lhe fart that il
also wAs largely overdrawn.
The matter of schools was then talked
of ami Mr. Leitch produced Irrrfuliiole
proofs that in Cranbrook it was n case
of a school-house for n 300 population
town instead of one for a town of 1300
inhabitants mid 150 school children, as
is lhe case here :i*;iit now. The powers
that were, tue, or lo be, would be onlj
too glad lo do Cranhrook justice 111 thin
matter and everything looked favorable
lor the betterment of our school facilities—but il was learned thai lhe fund
wns largely overdrawn.
Mr. I, itch then suggented that the
auxilharv fund might be ulilizsd in helping out the school-i, but an investigation
uf its condilioii !■• said lo have revealed
the lamentable fact that il was out of

Mr. Leitch wus followed by Mr Corti-

in his work. The motion was seconded,

selection of Provincial officers for British
Columbia, and has many fears for the
ultimate result. It means the creation
of discord, enmities among frieuds, the
selection of candidates possessed of
party strength rather than for fitness,
tbe introduction of corruption in an enlarged degree for the purpose of carrying
elections, appeals to passion and prejudice rather than cool judgment, the outcome of the future being—distant though
it may be—not uulike the conditiou of
which we frequently read of as existing
in the States, the Provinces, one may
term them, of the United States. Some
of The Herald's readers may think tbat
snch an outcome is impossible, tbst the
editor is pessimistic, but human beings
throughout thecivili/.-d world are pretty
much the same wherever you find tbem,
with the ouly difference that the passions
of some are more easily inflamed than
are others. Drawing party Hues is
equivalent to dividing a house against
itself, and that always means internal
strife and dissension, followed by partial
or entire rulu. Better drop it. It is au
unwise move.
This place was christened "Beautiful
Cranhrook" hy Fred Simpson wben
there was a most expansive and heauti-
tiful bit of scenery here, viewed from a
somewhat smaller meadow—the site of
Craubrook, Jt was very good, fitted the
purpose at that time, and fits the town
today. The Herald, however, believes
tbe lime has arrived for rechristeuiug,
and will hereafter proclaim it "JIappy
Cranbrook," for nowhere else can be
found a place where every man, woman
and child look, act, and are as happy an
the day is long, with the days constantly
lengthening. Kasily accounted for, too,
this happiness—tt is horn of prosperity,
the greatest cheerfulness breeder known.

Those Made MUeiuble by It Have tli*
Comfort  of t'uuipany.
It is said that 95 out of every 100
persons who go to .sea suffer more
or less from seasickness, and, taking the world over, there are probably thousands at* this very moment who ure In abject misery
from this cause, Vet few are deterred
by this fact from going to sea, even
though their OWU previous experience
teaches them thut they must Inevitably
suffer. As with some other states of
temporary distress, so with seasick-
ess; when onee It Is over, the memory
t it grows dim, uml we recklessly incur
the risk again, realizing our folly only
when it is too lute to stop the bout.
Although so sarlous a malady to the
sufferer, it is very rare that death results frum it. Delicate women have
made voyages of several weeks* duration, suffering every minute of the way.
and rejecting apparently every swallow
nf food; yet. terra tinna once reached,
appetite returns, and, nfter a few days,
no trace of suffering remains,
There would be little profit in reviewing the many conflicting theories 11s to
the nature of seasickness, but it is of Interest to learn that physicians who havu
hud the moat experience with its treatment regards it us a nervous uffeetlon
and not a stomach disorder. Almost every known drug has been
tried at one time or another, but none
bus been found that will cure all eases.
A moderately siek voyager should
■stay on deck every possible minute, ns
near amidships as he can get, mil of tIndirect rays of the sun, and where the
awful odors of machine oil, steam mid
cooking food may not reach him. Ile-
t-lining on a steamer-chair or lying fiat
on deck is better thnn sitting or standing, and the best of all correctives Is diversion, such us Is found in lively conversation aud the like.
It Ib Impossible to fix any -dietary
rules applicable to all cases, and the
best way Is fnr each one to call, within
reason, for what appeals to his palate.
Although seasickness is not primarily
a disorder of the stomach, there is no
question that it is often mnde worse by
the overeating, and sometimes overdrinking, so commonly attendant upon
the farewells of those about to sail. A
few days of plain living before going
aboard will perhaps do more than anything else to avert catastrouhe,—

Tha  Silver Thr«rs-d's Leap Into   tho

On the south side of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone river, is one of
the highest, If uot the highest, water-
fulls in this country, lt is culled the
Silver Thread, and fulls, as near as can
bn calculated, 1,800 feet. The descent
is not perpendicular, but it is so near
It that it is hard uot to believe that
the water does not fall straight down,
when viewed from ncross the canyon,
The water comes from u mountain
slreum whieh bas no name, lt flows in
a northerly direction towards the canyon from the foot hills of the Absitruka
range of mountains. Its entire route
is through dense forests until it reuchc?
the very edge of the canyon. Then it
plunges downward with a rour in keeping with Us size, atul keeps dropping
and dropping until the Yellowstone river
below is reached, 1,800 feet from the
As stated before, the descent is not
perpendicular, but it is very near it,
The walls of the canyon ut that particular jdace are very rugged, and this
little stream has worn almost a straight
channel down through the rocks. Tin
-water dashes downward at 11 very slight
angle, practically tinning neither to
the right nor thc left. In several places
a rock, not as yet worn away, breaks
the steady fall of water, forming a
slight cascade. These cascades do not
cause a real break in the descent of the
water, so practically the falls of tlie
Silver Thread are the highest in the
The name given these fulls is very
appropriate. They cannot be seen but
from the brink of the south side of
the canyon, which Is utmost a mile wide
there, Although tins wnteriall is IS
ftet wide from top to bottom, it docs
. not appear to be more than a couple of
inches wide from the point of observation. The walls of the canyon where
these falls occur ure below the vivid
colorations, uud are of dark brown.
The water looks like n silver thread or
ribbon stretched from the brink of the
canyon to the water below, hence the
-uamc, Silver Thread.—Hartford (Conn.)

Ou tho 17th February last, tlie board

Brydon wus elected president, uud Mr.
A. J. Andrews wns elected v ee-president, nnd the varion-s standing committees were struck.
Early in the year the iissociatiou wus

Ah in the pust, the statements attached deal very fully with the question of receipts uud disborsumeuts, and
it is therefore unuecu-sary to make any
extended reference thereto. ln this
oouneotton, however, it may be pointed
out thut the sum of $794,88 was expended in settloiuont of accounts properly chargeable to 1898, and also thut
a period of fourteen mouths is covered
by tho accounts herewith presented.
It will be noticed, uuder tbe head of
disbursements, that the largo sum of
$18,260 .was paid ont iu prizes and

The iissociatiou has paid to tho city
of Winnipeg tho sum of $l,ti50, being

and interest on tlio loan' created for
makiug permaucut improvements, and
iu addition to this Bora, nearly $4,000
was spent in improvements to tho
boildings and grounds, which belong to
the oity.
The board was able to spend the largo
sum of nearly $41,000 this year, in
furthering the work of the association.
This amount, with the exception of
about $1,500 private subscriptions to
the prize list, and $4,000 grnuted by
the provincial government, and $5,000
by the city of Winnipeg, Was mude up
from the revenue derived through the
holding of the exhibition.

announcing that negotiations are pend

hoped tbat exhibitors will be put to no

Shortly after laBt year's fair, four of
tho horse ht ablest were b timed dowu. A
tilth stable was considerably damaged,
but it haa since been rebuilt ont of the
fund* of the association. The loss was
appraised at $4,878.67, and this
amonnt has been paid by the insurance
companies to the'clty, aud 'is* "still iu

do not show in the association's ao-

Just a woman's story.
Not strange because it happens every
daj; not romantic, or thrilling, bnt
just a story of misery and suffering
each as, unfortunately, too many women endure in silence.
For several years Mrs. Thomas
Sears, of St. Catharines, felt* her illness gradually but sorely gaining a
firmer bold upon her system, and ultimately she almost despaired of recovery. To u reporter who called upon
her, Mrs. Sears *aid:
"What I have sutTered is almost beyond description. My illness has been
gradually growing upon me, and eighteen months ngo I found myself almost
helpless. My nerves were shattered,
my heart weak and my entire t-ystent
seemingly brokeu down. I had uo rest
night or day; the little sleep I did get
did not refresh me. I was in constant
agony, and only a woman can understand what I endured as I tried to do
my household work. Any j-uddou noise
would frighten me and leave me in a
conditiou bordering on collapse. At
times I experienced attacks of vertigo,
and these seemed lor a time to affect
my memory. the'Ieast exertion would
leave me ulmost breathless, uud my
heart -would palpitate violently. I had
no desire for food of uny kind, aud yet
I had to force myself toeat tomaintain
life. I treated wilh three dilfcrent
doctors and spent much money In this
way, bat without avail, and I was in
a conditiou bordering on despair. 1 was
urged to try Dr. Willinm*' Pink Pills,
and in December, 1M'\ 1 consented to
do so. I flrst got fonr boxes uud noticed a change for tho better aftor 1 had
finished the second box. When the four
boxes were finished thero was a great
change for tbe better, and I then pro
onred another half dozen boxes. Before these were all used I was again enjoying tbe blessing of good health.
There can be no doubt of my euro because months bave parsed since I discontinued taking Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and during that time I havo never felt tbe slightest symptom of the
trouble, and I cheerfully and strongly
urge other women who arc sofferiugto
ute this wonderful medicine, feeling
sure that it will care them, as ir did
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a sp.-ci-
fio for all forms of WFukuess. The
blood is vitalized, tho nervous system
it* reorganized, irregularitiu-t are ear-
reated.s trength returns and disease disappears. So remarkable havo been the
carts performed hy these little pills
that their famo hus spread to tbe far
ends of civilization. Wherever you go
you will find tbe most Important artiole
ln evory drug store to be Dr. Wllli-Mni'
Pink Pills.
