William MeKenzie, of the McKenrie
syndicate, the railway and mining magnate of Canada, wub iu Cranbrook this
week on hi* way to Kimberley and the
North Star mine. He waa accompanied
by his daughter* and the parly was traveling in Mr. McKenzie'B special car.
It has been some time since the gentleman hns visited South Kast Kootenay
and he was highly pleased with the progress noticeable throughout the district.
In an interview iu the Nelson Tribune,
he expressed himself as follows:
Iti regard to railroad matters, Mr.
Mckenzie stated lhat his syndicate has
nothing ou band or ia view save the
Canada Northern, on which John W.
Su ■*m l, who built the Balfour extension,
ba* n contract. Their project to build
the Vancouver, Victoria St Kaitern railway bas been allowed to drop since the
anti-subsidy legislation took effect a
couple of years ago.
"We are doing absolutely nothing in
connection wilh the V., V & ti. line,"
is Mr. McKenzie'B comment on the matter. He know* of ao projected road iu
this province, stating that the syndicate
ia not interested in the proposition to
build a road from Republic to Carson on
the international boundary line and
ncross into Greenwood.
Referring to hia mining interests, Mr.
MeKenzie stated that be is satisfied with
the prospects ahead of the Norlh Star
mine, The property iB a steady shipper
and improves constantly with develop
A Hustling Mlnloi Mai.
J. C. Drewery, general manager ofthe
Canadian Gold Fields company, which
owns tbe St. Eugene property, was in
town last Sunday accompanied by Mr.
Jeffry, mining engineer for the company. Mr, Drewry iB .kept busy traveling over British Columbia looking up
properties, and haa made some purchases the past year that are proving
to be winners. The gentleman came
over the trail from Crawford* bay to
Kimberley, arriving there just in time to
catch William McKenzie'a party in tbeir
special car on their return to Cranbrook.
Mr, Drewry says that the Craw fords bay
country looks very good indeed, and that
in hia opinion tbere will be some big
properties there in the future. "But,"
said the gentleman, "it takes time and
capital for these properties and companies cannot afford to pay the price of a
mihe for a prospect."
Mr. Drewery and Mr. Jeffrey left iu the
afternoon for Moyie.

The Aurora Oroup.
O. S Johnson, of Moyie, was In town
Monday. Mr. Johnson ia interested witb
others in tbe Aurora group ou the west
side of Moyis lake, aud ia feeling good
over recent developments on the property. Tbey have a tunnel In 110 feet,
and a cross cut baa shown up a magnificent lead, which they are now following. They have three men al work and
are pleased with the showing that has
been made. The size of the lead and
the richness of the ore exposed goes to
show pretty conclusively that within a
short time there will be some heavy
shippers on that side of tbe lake as well.
Looking Over Ike Co-Miry.
J. I Lowles of London, Eng., has
been in tbe district tbe past week looking over the country's mineral resources.
Mr, Lowles came over from Fort Steele
Tuesday accompanied hy M. A. Beale,
and went on to Kimberley later to look
over the big properties in that portion of
the country. Mr. Lowles will probably
invest in some properties in South Kast
Kootenay as he ii very favorably impressed with tbe outlook.
The editors of the Macleod Advance |
and the-Fort Stee'e 1 Prospector have
been having something in say regarding
big potatoes sent into lliem tiy friends.
The Macleod editor had 1.1 potatoes lhat
weighed 2t\ pounds, while brother Grace
was favored by in that weighed 40
pounds. To us tint seemed like big
potatoes, until list Friday, when we saw
our friend Engineer Gregory struggling
across tbe open flat tbat intervenes between the freight yards and Tbe Herald
office. He"seemed to be carrying something that was bea.y, and naturally, as
be neared the ollice, we concluded tbut
he had -*-*. large specimen of ore. Hut,
no, we were mistaken.. Perspiring like
a man working in the b.arvest field aud
panting like one climbing a steep trail,
he came through the door und deposited
on the table a potato, Ibe like of which
have never seen before. The editorial stand groaned beneath its weight,
the mahogany legs quivered like aspen
leaves in a storm, and total destruction
of this artistic piece of office furniture
was threatened had we not taken off a
heavy editorial clipped from the Moyie
Leader and thus lightened tbe loud.
But that pot oto was a beauty. As to
weight and length we can give no accurate idea. We kept it on. exhibition for
two days, aud then ha'd it delivered to

Those wbo are acquainted with Joh.n
Hutchison know something abont his
beautiful handwriting. It iu a peculiar
style, full of force, energy and eccentricities. There are curves and dashea, with
here and there a trembling line, which
forms a combination tbat would send n
writing expert crazy to attempt to decipher it at all times. Hyde Baker tells
tbe latest on "Hutch's" handwriting
that will be fully appreciated by those
who have struggled with that gentle
man's chlrograpby. It seems that Mr.
Hutchison intends to start a strawberry
bed, aud being, desirous of securing
plants wrote to Mr. Cherwood, of Nel
son, an old friend, asking him to secure
1,ooo as soou as possible. Cherwood
received the letter and worked over it an
entire forenoon, finally having to give it
up. But a happy thought struck him
Hyde Baker was iu town, and he would
take the letter to him. Finding him, be
"Say, Baker, you know Hutchison, of
"Certainly," replied Baker.
"Can you read his handwriting?"
"Well, I ought to," answered linker.
"I have seen enough of it the past few
years.   No trouble to do that."
Cherwood produced the letter aud
banded it to Baker, saying as he did so,
"I can't make out what he wauls."
Baker looked at lhe letter, knitted his
brow, and then started again. Ile read
it over several times and suddenly looked
up and handing back the letter, said:
"Why. tbat is easy. Hutchison simply
asks you to secure for bim 1,000 Sullivan shares.   That's as plain a9 day."

William Hocklag Is to Pay tbe Penally of
Hii Crime.
William K. Hocking, of Moyie, who
whh married iu this city last January to
Miss Jean Montgomery, was found guilty
of bigamy at Nelson this week and sentenced to three years in the penitentiary.
Hocking claimed that he was innocent
of intentional wrong, as he was under
ihe impression that his first wife had
secured a divorce. Tbe Nelson Tribune
"Iu reply to the query ai to whether
he had anything to say before sentenced

speech ever delivered from the prisoner's
box in the court house. He urged his
honor to deal leniently with him, maintaining strenuously that he wai wholly
guiltless of any Intention to break the

Magnificent Work Done by George Leask
and Pieper * Currie.
The house that has just keen completed for Kngineer Murphy on baker hill
by George I.eask ia one of the beat finished residences in Craubrook. It Is
modern iu design, and a careful examination of tbe work, both outside and In
the Interior, would quickly convince
anyone that Mr. I.eask Is painstaking
and careful tn every little detail ofthe
work. Nowhere Is tbere any slight, In
no place ts there any evidence of botch
work. From cellar to garret, fine workmanship is plainly visible. The joints
on the doors and window casings sre
perfect, the stairway iabnilt by ■ master
hand, the doors fit like a kid glove—In
fact tbe house stands as a monument to
honest, faithful work.
The painting and oiling was in charge
of Messrs. Pieper and Currie, a fact that
la hardly necessary to state, after noting
the manner in which the work has been
done. The beauty of the pine and the
tamarack has been brought out by the
artistic touch of their brushes, and tbe
finish is such that it will Increase in attractiveness as it grows older. The appearance of the wood work in Mr. Murphy's house quickly shows tbe difference
between having anything of the kind
done by those who understand their
business, and novices In the business.
Mr. Leask and the firm of Pieper & Currie have goud reasou to feel proud of
Mr. Murphy's house.

A Brief Sketch sl the  Laker Lesser For
Csri-Wo-Vale-kootest) District.
As s matter of news The Herald publishes the following biographical sketch
of Christopher Foley, tbe labor candi-
ate in the district :
Christopher Foley was born in Toronto in 184S, Five rears later bis parents
removed to Paris, Ont., where be worked
ou bis father's farm until 14 years of age
when be started out in life for bimself,
going to the soothem part of the United
States, where he traveled extensively,
until 1 St*, wben be left tbe south and
went west, Reaching the mountain
country, be commenced prospecting,
snd bas mined snd prospected with vary-
ng success from the City of Mexico to
tbe Fraser river. In 1SS6 he settled in
Vancouver, where be engaged in contracting, and succeeded by close attention to business in accumulating considerable money, which be invested ic Vancouver real estate. Tbe panic of '93 and
the slump in rest estate which accompanied it bit Mr. Foley hard, and he was
compelled to sacrifice much valuable
property snd to seek new fields. Two
years later he csme to Rossland snd
commenced as s working miner in the
Commander mine. Since then he bas
followed the occupation of a miner and
bas worked in several mines in the camp,
at present being employed in tbe Center
Star. He had been a resident of Rossland bnt a few months when be became
a member of Rossland Miners' Union
No. 38. His fellow members at once
recognized his great executive ability,
and thrust him to tbe front. Always
refusing to hold msny offices proffered
bim, he hss almost ever since his admission into the union been a member
of the executive board, a moat responsible position, snd one which often calls
for the most hard practical business
sense, which Mr. Foley bas in s remarkable degree, and hi influence with tbe
Rossland Union, as well as witb tbe
whole Federation has been great. Tbe
recent conventions of tbe Western Federation of Miners has chosen him to
represent this province on tbe executive
board of that great organization, and in
tbat position he has shown marked ability. Three or four years sgo Mr. Foley
commenced Ihe study of social questions
and that study hss placed him In the
front rank ofthe social and political reformers of the Dominion. Interviewed
sfterhe accepted the nomination, Mr.
Foley said: "I did not wsnt the nomination, but under tbe circumstances,
wben tbe convention asked me to be tbe
standard-bearer, I would indeed have
been a traitor had I refused. In accepting It I considered the cause instesd of

The Herald believes in preaching the
good p' ints of Cranbrook early and late
It believes that the Deople should do the
same, and lhe following article from tbe
New West Trade, of Spokane, strikes an
appreciative chord iu our makeup, and
•we ure of the opinion that the people of
Cranhrook will say amen to the sentiment expressed:
"Stand up for your own town. If others revile your place of residence, take
measures to correctas far as possible any
detriment that it may cause. There is
nuttiing like hiving pride in one's locality. [Muling out the good points it con-
tains—the points you can talk on—and
then impressing tbem upon the general
public, mnl especially upon those people
who are inclined to dispute them. A
little lime spent in educating a stranger
is profitably given if it wilt prevent that
stranger from going away and speaking
ill of your place. There is no telling
how much injury, be may not do. The
success mul upbuilding of communities
has behind it nothing stronger tban tbst
spirit which is determined to show to
the world the advantages which lhey
present. We often hear people of in-
Hue net* in a towu or city descanting not
upon the virtues ofthe plaee, but upon
its drawbacks; forgetting that tbey are
thus putting in the hands of enemies a

A s SBKN from the sea, the town of

harbor in the foreground, aud a. loug

loveliness which is nut easily forgotten.
The.whole neighborhood ia of bin-

This eave is a mere den, lying be-
tween two immense buuld-er* of about
twenty feet perpendicular. One of
these is somewhat conical in shape,
while the other la almost a perfect parallelogram. Between these, at some
remote period, another large stone
would seem to have fallen, aud become
tightly wedged. This is all tbat justifies tbe name of a cave. The plaee
must have been a fitter dwelling for tbe
bears and cougars which at tbat period
infested the eastern states, than for
two famous Englishmen.
On oue of the stones, which Is covered
with inscriptions, some visitor bas
taken pains to renew the inscription
which, tradition says, the occupants
placed over their retreat. Ills enthusiasm must have been brighter thau his

Hither one hundred and twenty years
ago came Reginald Flanders, ao Kngllsh soldier, wbo had served In the
French and Indian war. It was a solitary situation for auvh a man to bare
chosen aa a settlement; but he knew no
fear, and craved for no companionship.
He cultivated a patch of tbe wilderness
which stretched far away inland, and,
aa the Indians were quiet, the wild hillside aeemed to him, bis wife and Basil,
hia eight-year-old son, an earthly paradise.
It was a September morning. The
leaves, beginning to change, shone like
gold In ibe huh. Reginald Flanders
had thrown a sack of corn amiss the
back of bis plow-horse aud was taking
a farewell of bis wife and child, preparatory to starling for New Haven,
where he proposed to exchange his
marketable commodity for household
ueceasariea. Throwing his gun over
bla shoulder—for no prudent man
would then go on a journey without his
tried weapon of defense- he strode
away, and waa almost immediately lost
to view.
Shortly after tbediapat-t-h ofa frugal
breakfast, ltaail left the log house snd
wandered towards the verge of the
wobd». A Mil-ill stream came trickling
down toward (he sea, audi bettide it tbe
little fellow baited. A floating acorn,
the first of the seuson, caught his eye.
and, with ihe thoughtlessness of childhood, be drew it to the bauk. Somehow, that early fruit of Ibe wilderue*s
appealed to bia roaming instinct. He
craved for more, and, reasoning that
there must be plenty up alreitm, perceiving that hla mother's eye was not
upon him, he Htarted on hU<*i»»t.
The rivulet ran through a ravine.
The banks, composed of rocks, fretted
by storm and (focay, rose almotft perpendicularly on either aide. A few
scattered trees and shrubs sought nourishment from the earth, which had
fallen from above. Beyond these, up
the gorge, Basil pushed on—whither he
did not know,
The mother soon missed her son, but
at first, thinking he waa In the Vicinity,
check-Art her fears. The hours parsed,
and, as he did not return, ber anxiety
changed to absolute terror. Forsaking
all else, Mrs, Flanders hurried to the
fields, and, with rapidi footsteps, traversed th* gloomy glades. Search as she
would, she pou Id'discover no trace of the
missing one. She shouted, called* his
name, but there waa no response.
At len^lb she came to the stream,
There, with aery, half of gladness,half
of dismuy, she hailed ihe child's font-
prints In the soft, yielding soil. Rhe
saw that they poiute-d' upward*; to the
gorge, into which she had never before
ventured. But a mother's love fears no
consequences.   She entered,
For some time she rushed onward,
experiencing all ths bitterness of hope
deferred.   The cry:    "Baail!    Basil!" ,
rang out ot the stillness of the wood,
but uo answer came.
Suddenly sbe stopped* and gazed into
the gloom witb atraiuiug eyes; then
■he presided her band to bar heart, reeled
and utmost fainted. There, not 50yard*
away, stood* Basil!
It wus but for a moment thnt she so
yielded to her conflicting emotions.
Conquering her feelings, she rushed
forward aud clasped tbe child to her
breast. As the uow overjoyed mother
did* so, to ber horror, looking up into
tbe tauglfd foliage, she perceived a
huge panther, stretched, cm milt ing.
upou au esteuded bough, apparently
ready to apriug. Probubly the brute
had ouly tbeu observed ltu-_.il. for now,
upon his mother's approach, it hesitated to attuck. lashing its tawny sidrs
witb its tail, as If to work itself into a
state of greater fury.
What was to be done? A weak woman wus powerless against the strongest
and fiercest deuizen of the New Fug-
land wood*.
Scarcely knowing what she did, the
poor mother seized her child and turned
to fly. As ahe did so, the panther made
its spring.
Owing to the height and the distance,
it sprang short, barely touching the
rock upon which the two were standing, and' fell bat*kward.
The respite was but brief. Recovering Itself, the savage beast returned to
the attack.
Mrs. Flanders clasped Basil closed1 to
tier side, being resolved, in her desperation, tbat (he destroyer should only
reach his life through herself.
She could not escape by flight, aid
had no means of ilefeu.se. She could
only wait and pray.
Once more the assailant made ita attack, this time with a greater measure
of success. It struck the edge of the
rock, and managed tot-Hug to it. Struggling desperately to recover itself, it
sl reU'hed* forward until its jaws seemed
but a short yard* from its intended victim.
A't this moment overwrought nature
gave way under tbe strain, and she
awoobed. As tor Basil, he had bidden
bis face in liis mother's gown.
Meanwhile, Reginald Flanders sold
his corn, and expended tbe proceeds iu
flour, sugar, a email, prized packet of
tea fur bis wife, powder and lead, and
other simple necessaries.
Having transacted his business, he
set out on thu journey homeward, The
sun rose high in the heavens, uud, anticipating no evil, be suffered the slow-
paced plowihorae to subside iuto a
There was joy lu tbe calm peaceful-
neas of the surrounding wilderness.
The birds were merry, the sea gleamed
behind bim like glass, tbe hills rase on
either side. He was surrounded by the
pure beauties of nature, and the sweetness of contentment filled his soul. He
seemed to dream, and left the horse to
wander as it liked.
How it occurred Itegluald Flanders
could never tell. To-his surprise, arousing himself from pleasing reverie, be
found that Dobbin must 'have taken the
wrong course, for they were on the upper instead of tbe tower side of the
"West Bock."
Tbis mattered little, excepting tbat
it made the journey somewhat longer;
for which he was sorry, us he knew bis
wife would be looking out for his coming; only now be muat cross the stream
high up in the woods. -So, pressing the
faithful old horse iuto an apology for a
trot, he pursued his way.
At length he came to the precipitous
bank of the brook, down which with
some difficulty he guided his horse.
Pursuing a downward course in tbe direction of 'his home-, lie wus suddenly
startled by a shrill, weird cry.
It- souud-ed as if it were the voice of
his wife, and yet it was strangely unlike. Whatwasit? What could it por-
There it rang again. -Some one must
be iu (tire peril.
There was no time for delay. The
inyMery must be solved at once. Forward!
The old horse lumbered heavily ou,
over rocks and projecting tree-Htumjw,
but its he*! effort* failed to keep pace
witb its master's ever-increasing uux-
The cries had ceased. All was once
more aa* silent as nature, on an early
autumnal dny, can be. Willi the recurring silenve thn man's fears became
As he came within slg-bt of the rock,
he was surprised to perceive an enormous panther, making strenuoua endeavors to climb its slippery sides.
With the Inslinct of the. hunter and
(he coolness of the practiced soldier,
Beginuld Flanders grimped bis rifle,
shuok tbe primfng in his hand, placed a
fresli flint in the lock, and took a long
and deliberate iiirn, Had be known the
real state-, of affairs, it ingi'ht have unnerved'bis ami, but the knowledge was
happily spared him.
And now the auvsge animal mude Its
fool hold good. With a snarling cry It
crouched, leaped und -rolled hack, lifeless, Into Ihe stream, with tbe settler's
bullet through its brain!
Curious totftud out what had been the
panther's object, yet not for a single
moment giie-sKing the truth, the marksman set himself to climb the rock.
Who shall describe thr mingled horror and thuiikfulness wilh which be
percrived the unconscious forms of his
loved ones, and realized that he bad
been providentially enabled to save
Ihem from an awful fate? {
With difficulty'the loving husband

There are few sentimental allusions
in any of the raporta which emanate
from the government printing office in
Washington under authority of tha
commissioner of labor. It may be no
surprise, therafure, to mauy to know
that the eleventh annual report of the
commissioner of kbor contains ln tabulated form, reduced to exact perceut-
egea, a statement showing tbe occupations of divorced women.
Tbe bureau of the statistical expert In
charge uf tabulation divides the female
population of tbe .'tilted Statea of ten
years or upward into four general
_laa.ee. First there are the married,
who number 13.lit per cent. Theu there
are the widows, who number 10.10 per
cent. Third is the class of the "alugle
and unknown;" these number ti-.st per
cent, Finally there are the divorced,
wbo constitute niue-teutbs of oue per
cent, of the female population of ten
years of age or over iu the I'uited States,
and they are distributed throughout
various occupations, which the statistical experts have endeavored to state
with undeviating exactness. Of the
total number of divorced women employed, it seems that .21 per cent, are
bookbinders, .83 are shoamakers and
.CO are corset makers. A much smaller
proportion, Ai, are saleswomen, while
60 are telegraph and telephone operators. Stenographers and typewriters
uake up .67 per cent,, and .38 are mill
The official statisticians at Washing-
.on look neither to the right nor to the
eft in their tabulation and tt need be
no surprise, therefore, to know that
1.23 of the divorced women of the United
States who have any business occupation are merchants, 104 are carpet makers, aud .40 are bat and cap makers.
Milliners come under a separate division, their percentage of divorced
women being 1.32. Of seamstresses
there are 1.15, and of clerks and copyists
.51. Moreover, .29 are boxmakers, .63
printers, .31 cigarette and tobacco makers, .64 in the confectionery business,
1.43 dressmakers, .46 paper mill operators, and .15 iu silk mills,
Tbe professions have a considerable
number of divorced women, 1.24 baing
music teachers and 1.18 teachers of art.
There are 3.33 per cent, described as
hotel, restaurant and saloon keepers
and barkeepers and a somewhat larger
proportion as boarding or lodging house
keepers; 1,62 as laundresses; 1,60 as
nurses, and .11 aa agricultural laborers.
In one particular, however, the report
of the commissioner of labor seems to
be pretty nearly exact, for 3.16 of the
total number of divorced women are
put down as agents and It Is a matter of
very general observation tbat divorced
women make excellent agents where
persistence and volubility are required.

Cider will soon be very cheap, and a
g-illoo can be put to oo better use Chan
to help in producing the perfection of
boiled hams. Choose a medium-sized
bam, wash, scrub, weigh and -soak in
plenty of cold water for 84 hours; wipe
dry and simmer in the cider, allowing
15 minutes to each pound. Allow It
to stand over night to cool in the liquor,
then peel off the skin and wipe with a
soft cloth until tbe surface Is dry from
moist fat. Garnish with aspic jelly and
boiled vegetables cut in fancy shapes.
A very savory meat jelly may be quickly made for garnishing when aspic is
not at band, by making clear bouillon
from chopped beef or beef paste, color
with sliced onions fried very brown in
butter, and pour a pint boiling hot on

A h-i-iu baked in a paste Is another
delicious change, and once this recipe,
though slightly extra trouble, is tried
the ordinary one will be laid aside. Prepare the ham as directed above, mix
up about a quart of flour with enough
cold water to make a stiff paste. Cover
the flesh aide with this. Put in a moderate oven; while the crust is still soft
begin to baste with sherry wine; do
tbis every ten minutes until a large
cupful is used; after that there will be
sufficient gravy la the pan to continue,
Ten mnutes more must be allowed for
each pound in cooking, as the paste protects the meat, When done the crust
and skin are to be peeled off, the ham

uut iimn days should not be minded.
Barbecued haan may be served by help
of a little sherry. Put a large slice of
the baked ham iu Ihe bot frying pin;
season with pepper, salt and mixed
mustard; add a teaspoon of vinegar; it
will brown quickly on one side; keep
the pan on a hot place; turn the slice,
sprinkle in a very little sugar and a

One dny it fell to the lot of Lord Mor*
ris to hear a case at Colcralne iu which
damages were claimed frum a veterinary
surgeon for having poisoned n valuable
horse. The issue depended upou whether
a certain number of groins of n particular drug could be safely administered to
the animal. A dispensary doctor proved
that he hnd often given eight grains to
a man. from which it was to he inferred
that 12 fur a horse was not excessive.
"Never mind yer eight grains, docthcr,"
said the judge. "We all know that some
poisons are cumulative In effect, and ye
may go to the edge of ruin with Impunity. Knt tell me this: The VI grains—
wouldn't they kill lhe divil himself If he

Vp to tiini-M within the memory of
living men, almost no one of means
traveled through Europe without a
courier. Before railroads were built
and before good guide hooka were printed, he uas alino.tt iudii-jpetii-.ilble. Ilia
tribe survives, writes Herbert Luce In
(Joint? Abroad, but in greatly dimln-
islmil numbers. To the self-reliant
traveler be te ot no use whut ever. Indeed, he la frequently a positive incumbrance, und worse. To my mind,
one of the great pleasures of travel la
iu learning to travel by myself. There
is satisfaction, pleusure aud education
in planning routes, deciphering time
tables, making bargains, learning by
observation the lay of the laud.
The time iimy have been when a courier could wive a traveler more than hla
cost. Mn.-i i-ertulnly that it* nut the case
now, Ou the contrary, an he geta a percentage on every purchase his party
makes (which) of course, comes oul of
the purchaser In increatwd- price), and
as It In often for bis interest to advise
the more costly route, the more costly
hotel, or the more costly excursion, he
outs np much more than hia wagea,
while saving positively nothing. Bean
declares that in a two-weeks' trip In
southern Spain, which he made aide by
side with a couple having a courier, be
Invariably reached -the hotel hrst, got
better rooms, uuw all tbe sights to aa
good advant-age; yet the courier waa
of his kind an expert. The fact is that
travel has become so general, tourist
companies, railroads and< landlords have
so well -stiiiMed lis need*-*, books are so
plentiful, Unit you couldn't very well
get oft* the track or hnve a mishap if you
■HtiimpR were contemptuously culled.
John M. Nile*, onr ixa-tmaar-u-r-ffeneml

Pave Johnson, waa more fortunate, ami
