hast Sunday morning two well known
members of Strathcona Horse returned
from Africa to Cranbrook. Tbey were
Walt Edwards ami. Charley Peterson.
Tbe boys met with a royal reception,
and were the center of large groups of
admiring friends during the rent of the
day. Iu fact, tbey bave been wined an-d
dined ever since they returned, their old.
friends vicing with each olher to do the
returned soldiers honor, and show them
that tbe friends tbey had before they left
for the fields of South Africa, were still
their friends. The boya are looking fine,
and both are heavier than when they
left a little more than a year ago. Their
faces are tanned a dark brouze by the
heat of the southern sun, aod throughout
the hardships and privations tbat tbey
suffered, they never lost the good health
they enjoyed before leaving South East
Kootenay. Naturally tbey bad some
great experiences, and they have been
keep busy recounting their exploits for
tbe benefit of the people here. They do
do not regret the trip, but both agree
tbat once is enough for them. Among
the mementoes of the campaign that
tbey have brought, none is prized higher
than the medals given to tbe members
on their arrival in London, by King
Edward, when the boys passed in review before the King and Queen,. The
medal is made of silver, a little larger
than a silver dollar. Ou one side is tbe
profile of the late Queen, and on the
other a scene of marching troops in
Africa. One the edge is the name and
rank of each one.

[From The Herald correspondent)
About three years ogo a company com
posed of Tom Rader, O J. Johnsoh and
J. B. Sanburn started work ou some
claims directly opposite the town, and
commenced to develop what is now tbe
Aurora mine. There was then a slight
showing of galena on the surfuce, which
or, being stripped proved to be a vein
from three lo four feet wide, aud extending for a cousidera. le distance up the
mountain, About three hundred feet
down the mountain a tuunel was ruu in
for the purpose of cutting tbe vein. An *
other tunnel was started higher up the
mountain last summer, which, after being run in for a short distance struck a
fine body of, not concentrating, but high
grade shipping ore. It was the intention
of tbe company to sink on this, but
water flooding them out prevented it.
Accordingly v.ork was resumed in the
lower tunnel and has been kept up ever
since. About a week ago they struck a
ledge of concentrating ore four feet wide,
but on drifting thirty feet further a ledge
of solid galena, three feet iu width was
come incoutact witb. These two ledges,
which are well defined, ruu parallel to
each other. There is no doubt whatever
that the vein is the same as that on the
famous St. Eugene property, as a person
standing on the auiface vein on the
Aurora claim is directly opposite tbe
different tunnels which huve beeu run to
tap the vein on the St. Eugene, It ia
the intention of the owners to continue
work during the summer nnd further develope the property which in few years
will be as big a paying proposition as
the St. Eugene.
Moyie, for a short time the first of Inst
week, was free from the name of smallpox, but today she again flies the yellow
flag. Jack Allen, a miner at the St. Eugene mine, is the person now occupying
the pest house. The same nurse who
had charge of Dennis Shea, is taking
care of Allen. A peat house has been
built beyond Muir's sawmill and Allen
was taken there. Dr. Green, who gave
np his house to Shea, ia again in his
oflice. Tbe whole town, to a certaiu extent/ is under quaraut-ie, Tbe miners,
or persona living at tbe St. Eugene addition, are Lot'allowed to leave lown
under any consideration and tbe residents can ouly leave by showing a health
certificate. Persons without certificates
coming into town must remain here fur
16 days. Tbe government ageut, J. F.
Armstrong, has given notice by means
ol posters that all persons must be vaccinated within seven days from last Saturday. All those wbo are known to be
suable lo pay, tbe fee will be paid for
by tbe government. No other cases
bave developed so that in a short time
Moyie hopes once more to pull down the
yellow flag and welcome all comers.
The lot between the Leader office and
George Batley'a houses has been purchased for I580 as a site for a new court
house and jail. The government paid
$230 tbe remainder being made up by a
popular subscription in town. Work
will commence ou the building as soon
as the necessary arrangements have
been completed.

Since tbe spring ihree years ago that
Cranbrook started as a village, each year
has added to her growth and prosperity.
There hive been cranks who Baid that
there was nothing to hold up the town,
aud who were free in their predictions
that iu a few months a decline would set
in, and Beautiful Craubrook would be
naught but the ruins of blasted hopes
end earnest desires. Thia was said that
first spring, three years ago; it was referred to two years ago; it was hinted at
one year ago, and now ut the dawning of
the fourth year, the croakers find themselves out of a job, since no one can be
found lo listen to their doleful tales.
There have beeu the best of reasons in
the past to believe that Craubrook would
be a large and prosperous city. Those
who had had experience in the west, who
could reason from cause to effect, who
were far sighted enough and broad in
their views, never had auy doubts ns lo
the future of Cranbrook. First, tbey
knew the primary requisite was here-a
listrlct of unlimited wealth, (he development of which meant the investment
of thousands and the reaping of a harvest
of riches. Such a condition insured Increasing commercial activity aud the
building up of mauy prosperous towns
throughout tbe district. With this accomplished, somewhere in the district
there must be a great center, a common
point for the transaction of commercial
and government business. That point
must be one lhat would be the most ac
cessibl-a from all parts of the district.
There is ouly one town in South East
Kootenay that fills these requirements,
aud that town is Cranbrook. From a
geographical standpoint, Cranbrook is
the unquestioned center. From a railway standpoint, she has no rival as a
center. These conditions have made
Cranbrook the natural point for transacting the business of the district, and has
made her the acknowledged commercial
center for a vast territory in the district.
The banking business for all of this portion ot tbe -district, including the towns
of Wnrdner, Fort Steele, Kimberley and
Moyie, is transacted in Cranbrook. The
customs business for the district is all
transacted In Cranbrook. The railway
business, and it is one of the most important in the district, is managed and
directed from Craubrook, for the entire
line of the Crows Nest Pass railway. The
lumber business of the district, an industry that involves thousands upon
thousands of dollars each year, centers
at Craubrook. In fact the tendency of
the time is to center all matters of genernl importance at some central point.
This is natural aud simply follows the
course in every district In a new country
And as the other towns in the district
grow and increase, Cranbrook grows
with them.
One feature In the conrse of Cranbrook's career that bas been commented
upon by many, is her position in relation
to other towns In the district. Her people are always ready to assist in a movement that will prove beneficial to the district. There are no petty Jealousies, no
narrow minded criticisms against other
towns. The people of Cranbrook, from
the Inception of the town to the present,
have always maintained that anything
that was good for the other towns in the
district, was good fur Craubrook. They
have worked along this line in all lhat
lhey have done, and at no time has tbere
ever been any antagonism shown against
any other community in the district.
These various factors have combined
to give Cranbrook prestige aud continued
prosperity. As a result Cianbrook Is
growing rapidly today. There are uew
houses going up on every hand, and yet
the supply fails to meet the demand.
What was a barren flat and a hillside
cow red with trees two years ago, is now
converted into a handsome residential
district, where there are homes thnt will
compare favorably with many that may
be seen in Nelson, Rossland and other
Isrger cities.
Cranbrook is a growing town and a
prosperous town. She wilt be one of the
very best towns in the interior of British
Columbia In five years. Sbe bas arrived
at that stage where there can be no backward step. Tbe future of the town is a
bright one, and there is every reason to
feel that it will continue to grow brighter.

the census for the sub-districts will be

officer employed in the carrying ont of

The work of enumerating is to commence Monday. April 1st, and wilt be
prosecuted continuously from day to day
until completed. Sundays excepted, Tbe
population is grouped under the heads
of families, households and institutions.
A family consists of parents, and sons
aud daughters united iu a living and
housekeeping community, but may in
elude other relatives and servants. A
household includes all persons in a
house-keeping community usually with
one of their number occupying thc position of head. Single persous living alone

on their own housekeeping are also regarded as householders.

More Houses Needed.
Kvery day someone Is Inquiring for a
bouse to live in. The demand in Cranbrook far exceeds the supply. A house
costing *$6oo or $700 will rent readily for
■J15 per month. That makes a pretty
good Investment, especially when it
is taken iuto consideration the fact tbat
the towu Is ou a permanent aud substantial basis.
Oue of the most interesting and largely attended meetings of the Board of
Trade ever held in Cranbrook was that
held last Mr-nay night. Mr. A. Leitch,
president of tbt* Board, presided
After the mlnulei of previous meetings
had been disposed of, Mr. Leitch explained how the delegation to Greenwood had beeu changed by the executive couiuiittee, and on motion of Mr.
Costigan the action of the committee
was approved.
Tbe secretary reported that fioo had
been paid iuto tbe fire fund for lhe purpose of discharging the debts against Ibe
brigade, and the obligations were ordered paid.
Tbe question ol incorporating the
board enme up and it was pretty gener-
ally discussed before any action was
taken. On motion of Mr. Costigsn, seconded by Mr. McVittie, tbe secretary wu
instructed to secure necessary information as to tbe requirements for incorporating the board, and report to a special
meeting to be called for tbat purpose.
This closed tbe minor business and
then John Hutchison started the ball
rolling by moving tbat the Cranbrook
Board of Trade favored incorporating tbe
town. The motion was seconded by Dr.
King, and then followed a general discussion. A letter waa read ftom Mr. F.
T. Griffin, land commissioner for the C.
P. R., in which that gentleman a—ltd
tbat the company would not oppoee a
movement toward incorporation, it the
members of the board and the people of
Cranbrook favored it. He further elated
that be did not believe it was advisable
just at this time to secure incorporation,
bat believed that a brief delay might
serve tbe purposes of all interested
Mr. Leitch explained his visit to Mr.
Whyte at Winnipeg, and tbe talk he bad
witb bim.
Mr. V. Hyde Baker said that speaking
for himself individually, he would sot
favor incorporation just at thia time, but
a little later he thought perhaps he
would favor it, and said he desired to
know what incorporation would mean.
Mr. A. Moffat replied that it would
mean lhat after incorporation some 30 or
40 people in town would not have to pay
for all public improvements secured.
Mr. A. W. McVittie spoke at length,
heartily favoring the proposition.
Mr. Hutchison's motion prevailed,
and then Mr. Baker moved tbat a committee be appointed to secure all tbe
necessary data for the preliminary steps
in securing incorporation, and the probable results as to revenues and expenses,
such committee to report as soon ss possible to a special committee of the board.
The motion prevailed.
On motion of Mr. Costigan the follow*
ing gentleman were appointed as members of the committee: Messrs. Mclnnes, Costigan, Gurd, Haines, Baker,
Ryan and Hutchison.
The meeting then adjourned.
Baseball Meeting.
A meeting of those interested was held
in Ibe parlor of the Cosmopolitan hotel
last Monday night for the purpose of reorganising tbe baseball club for the
coming season. The meeting was well
attended, and was a most enthusiastic
one, and the way the work started should
end iu the forming of a baseball club
tbst will reflect credit on tbe town, especially as tbere are several new players
here wbo have the reputation of being
the real thing on the diamond. Dr.
King was elected president, aud B. H.
Small, manager and secretary-treasurer.
The choosing of a captain will he left to

A special committee, composed of P.
F. Pieper, Art Shelton. A. L. McDermot, Harry Nevin and Matt Rockendorf
was appointed to devise some form of
entertainment to assist in defraying the
expense of a new outfit, and it was decided to give a ball in Wentworth hall
on Easter Monday, April 8, at which a
generally good time is promised.

"1 can't for the life of me see," remarked an Englishman during the
course of conversation with Nat -flood-
win once, "what people mean by Amor-
lean humor. To me all humor Is alike,
whether it be of American or English
origin. Perhaps you can explain to mo
just what distinguishes American humor from any other sort?"
"Well," replied Mr. Goodwin, "I think
the American type of humor Is rather
more subtle. It doesn't always fully
Impress itself upon you at once. The
more you think about lt tho funnier it
seems. I can perhaps best Illustrate
my meaning with a little story.
"A man wns walking along the street
one day when he pnsscd another man
who was carrying a letter in his hand.
'"Pardon me,' said the mnn with tho
letter. 'Do you know where the post-
office Is?'
"'Yes,' snid the other man and passed on. On second thought he decided
that be hnd been rude and went bnck
to where the mnn with tho letter was
still standing.
" 'Do you wish to know where the
postoffice is?' he asked.
" 'No,' said the other mnn."
The Englishman's gaze was vacant
"Just turn It over In your mind for a
few minutes and tell mo what you
think of It," said Mr. Goodwin.
Ten minutes Inter the Englishman
clutched at Mr. Goodwin's elbow. "Yon
won't be offended, will you, old chap?"
bo murmured. "But, really, I think
they were both bltwsted rude!"

thnt the more a man asserts his hide
pendenco the better, 1 felt pretty
doubtful about Hint dinner, but I
wasn't going to let Mnrla know 1 had
any qualms, I remembered, too, I had
managed woll at bncholor housekeeping for a few weeks.   I bad everything
onVOttlent!  never made thu beds be-
OUSO It was so well to let them ulr
thoroughly, nud because I believed in
ConaolldntlOU and that In Union there
Is BtrcUglli I did not wash my dishes,
but let them collect and tho day before
my mother returned put tbem In a tub
■nd turned tbe hose on tbem.
The success of (his venture embold-
ed me to try again, but for reasons
best known to my own soul I did not
(ell Mnrln. 1 simply said I could manage and WOtlld really enjuy the novel
performance or getting my own dinner
that It would by no means prove
fatal. I resolved two things tlrmly—
that 1 should have a good dinner Irrespective of tho germ theory, microbes
and bacilli and that the dinner should
he at G o'clock promptly. This not having meals on time, 1 felt, was all nonsense, and while Mnrla waa away was
surely the time to indulge In microbes,
for ahe feared them so she had given
me n restricted diet. Thnt dny I left
tho office at 4 o'clock. I hnd been thinking nt Intervals during the day whnt I
should have for that dinner. I even
meditated corned beef, cabbage, mince
pie ntul doughnuts. All of tbem I would
make myself nfter 1 left the office.
I procured on the wny home the
necessary supplies, An alluring display met my eyes. I went Into the
market nnd purchased n nice pin te
pleco of cornet' beef. I wns nbout to
tell the butcher I would carry It with
me for my 0 o'clock* dinner when the
butcher, who kuew me pretty well,
assured me thnt tiie corned beer hnd
to boil a number of hours to be done.
In the reaction which followed tills announcement I remembered "that he
could Bend It tor tbe nest dny: 1 hnd
meant thnt alt along." nnd I hastily
purchased some oyst ers a nd lu ml*
chops. "1 will have oyster soup foi
the flrst course," said I to myself, "nud
chops nnd tomntoes for the second If
that won't be good, I don't know what
It was 5 o'clock when I got home
It wns bo lonely without Marin Hint I
thought I bnd belter start the dinner
at ouce; besides. I wanted thai men I
at 0 o'clock sharp Maria had nboul
bothered the life oui or me by uot
having meals on time. 1 lighted
the burners ou the gas stove, ami l
decided to make biscuit, mluee pie
and doughnnis. besides cooking the
oysters and the men!. Hy fi:30 I was
Just enjoying the tiling I had the milk
for the oysters contentedly boiling ou
one of the burners, nnd Hie others had
been blazing for some lime, all ready
for use when wauled. The first thing
I did was tu find a cookbook.
I ran dowu the index through pump
kin, lemon, carrot, custard, until 1 got
to mluee pie. Tliis I read carefully.
Then I sadly closed the book. Mince
pie required cold meat, apples and a
thousand other tilings and could not
be mnde in an Impromptu manner.
nnd at (1 I must bnve that dinner. I
fell distressed, but there were slill tbe
doughnuts. 1 was just in the midst
Of discovering It would lnke nt least
a good iwo hours to make doughnuts
wheu, by thunder, didn't lhat milk
boll over! I fell like going through the
whole litany. I rushed to the stove,
seized my clean handkerchief and had
Just made Up my mind that the milk | talking of 'our sphere
must be done enough ror the oysters

He Cures Every Form of Piles Thoroughly and Well
Without the Danger, Expense  and Pain
of an Operation.
It Is surprising what a large number of men and women suffer from
the wretched uneasiness aud torturing Itching of piles. You may be
among those who, through modesty
or fear of the surgeon's knife, hnvo
been prevented from appealing to
your physician for a cure, i'oii havo
tried the hundred nnd ono things lhat
friends huve recommended and have
become discouraged, You say, us
many havo said hefore you, that
thcrfc is no cure for piles.
Now is tiie time for you to turn lo
Dr. Cbaso, whose famous ointment is
recognized the world over as the only
actual euro for every form of piles.
Tho real substantial value of Dr.

have been discouraged, and after
years of misery have been eured by
Dr. Chaao's Ointment. Hero is one.

constant    sufferer from nearly every

"1 am only doing justice to Dr.
Chase's Ointment whon I say that I
believe it. to bo the best remedy obtainable for bleeding and protruding
piles. I strongly recommend Dr.
Chase's Ointment to mothers, or indeed, to nny person suffering from
that dread torment—piles."
Mr, lieorge Thompson, a lending
merchant of Dlenheim, Ont., states :
"1 was troubled with Itching piles
for 16 yeurs, and at times they were
so bad I eould scarcely walk. I tried
a great many remedies, but never

obtained relief, and was completely
cured by using one box." Ask your

similar tenor to the press dispatches al
