THE LION AND THE LAMB
Fort Steele Came to Cranbrook to Hold
a Joint Jubilee.
THEKI: WAS ALL KINDS OF OLD MUSIC
Eating, Drinking,  Toasting,  and
After-Dinner Eloquence
a Feature.
AFTERMATH OF A WARM CAMPAIGN
At about 8:30 p. m. last Tuesday uight
about 100 citizens of Fort Steele arrived
in Crnnbrook in iigt* and on horseback,
precedetl by the Fort Steele bias.*-* band
on top of the old Golden-Foit Steele
Concord stage coach, who were led by
three horsemen, two bearing a banner
inscribed with "Roberts and Pretoria
and Smith aud Victoria," and tbe third
wilh a big Union Jack and were received
by the townspeople with loud ami lusty
cheers.
The occasion was that of a celebration
by the friends of Mr. Smith, the newly-
elected member for South Kast Kootenay, in honor of his victory. There
were Smith men from Fort Steele, from
Moyie, from Fernie, from Kimberley,
and these, witb Mr. Smith's friends in
Cranbrook, were determined to give all
comers a good time, and they did it.
Until about 10:45 P> ni. Hiker street
wore quite a metropolitan appearance.
On the balcony of the Cosmopolitan hotel the Fort Steele band, uuder tbe leadership of Mr. Barnes, discoursed sweet
music, while on the sidewalk the people
of Cranbrook, Fort Steele, and other
towns promenaded to and fro, evidently
enjoying tbe gay scene presented.
At 10:45 Mine Host 1*;, II. Small informed all bands that the banquet awaited their attack, and ubout 21x1 or more
sat down and did ample justice to the
good things provided, Owing lo the
large number present tbe supper was
served at a first and second table. When
the second table had satisfied the inner
man, everyone gathered in the handsome dining-room of (he hotel, and with
t_.. u;-„   -„   -t...:-_.....   tr-hw   •*_     n    ,,.
Beattie as vice, the toast list was taken
up.
The first to-ist on the list was, of
course, " Tbe Queen," which was drunk
most heartily, all joining In tbe singing
of the National anthem and was replied
toby W.S. Keay in bis usual happy vein
The next toast, proposed by Dr. King,
was that of " Our Gnist." The doctor
refeircd iu glowing leims to Mr. Smith,
and emphasized the fart that the campaign just ended was the cleanest he had
ever seen.
Mr. Smilh, who was loudly cheered,
responded iu a few well-chosen words.
He said lhat as he was uow tbe servant
of the people, the poorest man in the
mountains had ns much right to consideration from the member ns the richest
dwelling iu the towns, and lhat be would
get it. Mr. Smith resumed his seat amid
cheers,
The next toasl wait "To Onr Late
Opponeuts," and was responded to first
by Mr, Costigan, and afterward by Mr.
LettCh, Mr. Costignn was received
with cheers, nud snid that although
he occupied rather a anions uo-
siiion—that of the vanquished celebrating the victory of bis Dpponetit—he felt,
speaking for himself and friends—Hint
Mr, Smith would rece've loyal support
as the member for the district, nud that
t was the duty of every good citizen to
do all iu his power to strengthen bis
hand. He congratulated Mr. Smith
most heartily, and said tliHt iu view of
the Insinuations that hi«l been cast on
Mr. Martin ns to his Manitoba career, he
would rend a letter from a prominent
politician in that province who wns opposed to Mr. Martin. The letter wns
read and proved conclusively tbnt tbe
less suid nl.i.ut Mr, Mtirtiu in Manitoba
hy bis opponents the better for them.
This act of justice Oil the jail of Mr.
Costignn was received by many nud prolonged cheers. At the conclusion of
Mr, Costignn's nddress Mr. Smith shook
him warmly by the hand. Mr. Leach
then in a few words told the boys tbat
although he would liked to have been a
winner, still he could tnke a licking ntul
not squeal.
Thc next tonal was proposed by Mr.
Medhurst, that ol "Our Leader, Joe
Martin." In proposing the (0,1st Mr.
Medhurst snid that 0 short time ngo
there was ouly one Marltultc in Cranhrook, and the result of the election
showed that now there >vere nt least 122
and called upon Mr. Benltle, thc original
Marlinilc, to respond. Mr. Beattie said
that he could never, on nny account, refuse to reply to the toast of Mr. Martin,
and gave as his reason for being a strong
admirer of lhat gentleman that he bud
lived for a number of years In Mr. Martin's constituency in Manitoba aud had
Been what he could do and whal he did
lo for the good of the country. And
that, although Mr. Martin did not carry
the country at this election, be would
rise up again, nnd ngnin, and ngain.
Our Common Interests" was next
proposed and responded toby Mr. McBride, of Foit Sleele, audi) \V. Robinson, of Cranbrook. Mr, McBride snid
toat this election had cleuicd away any
ill feeling that existed between Fort
Steele and Crnnbrook, and that fiom
now on both towns would work for tbe
interests of the district,   Mr  Ruhiuson,
in 11 lew words, expressed the sentiment
thnt Craubrook, like Fort Steele and
other towns, should put aside all little
local prejudices nnd work for lhe district.
Mr. Kershaw, of Fort Steele, then
spoke nnd snid thnt one of the greatest
pleasures he hnd had during the evening
was hearing Mr. CoaUgOU speak. Me
said that his speech showed hoiiesly and
good breeding. He also said that the
greatest enemy Fort Steele had was a
paper called the Prospector, and proceeded lo roast the editor of that Journal.
Mr, Kershaw concluded Ins speech by
singing lhe following Hues, composed by
himself;
Ch-aor, boys, cheer- r«r R0U11*- In Pretoria,
nicer, boys, shear, for Braltli ih in \ lotorla-
ah Uu- itt-iilu's Interents will now protected be
ton steels miti Qranbrookaud Hast Kootonay.
The next toast was lo "The Real
Workers." Tbe chairman said that
theie were a number of meu who worked
for Smith at the election whose names
were not often seen in print and who
were perhaps not so well known lo the
public asotherB, and to Ihese, in a great
degree, the success of the election was
due, This toast was responded lo by
Messrs. Mitchell, Howrie, Ross and
Laurie, each of whom suid a few words.
Tbe next toast w:,s to "The Beardless
Boys," which wus responded to in un
Abe manner by J. Lungely, of Fort
Sleele,
"The Press That Was Neutral" was
uext proposed, and iu his remarks the
chairman said that tbe Cranbrook Herald had shown its good sense iu refusing
any paltry $200, $300 or :*4oo bribe, but
remained neutral throughout lhe campaign and hnd thus lost no friends, hut
ou the contrary had made many new
ones. Unfortunately neither Mr. Went-
woith or Mr. Rockendorf were present
to respond, but The Herald got cheered
just the same.
"Those Whose Hearts are Always
Wilh Us" was next proposed, coupled
witb the names of Messrs. MeKenzie,
Caven aud Hutchison. Messrs. MeKenzie and Caven were absent from the
room at lhe time, but Mr. Hutchison
said that all would agree 011 one thing
—that "Eaat Kootenny Wns AU Right."
The next toast was "Kimberley, That
Told tbe Tale.'' Messrs. White and Carrol responded to this toast and impressed
011 their hearers lhat without Kituher-
ley's majority Smith would have been
in bad shape.
Next, "Moyie, True Blue," was proposed, hut owing to the train having already left, there was no Moyie representative lo reply, so cheers were given for
the Lucerne of East Kootenay, aud the
toast of "The Lndies" was proposed,
answered by Messrs. McDermot. Sly and
Pniker in Iheir usual good style.
Mr *\T-»<tti--.rr>» Mian wild cvcryboily
knew tbnt Mr. Small and Mr. Orchard
were ''Jolly Good Fellows," nnd then
he begged lo propose a toast which he
asked everybody to diiuk iu silence,
that of "After the Heat of the Battle
—Peace " Thia was done and "Home,
Sweet Home" was sung, and the supper
ended with the singing of "God Save tbe
Queen."
The one feature of tbe evening which
must have impressed itself on the minds
of all present was the statement of almost every speaker that, although tbe
election had heen fought bard, there had
not existed during the campaign, or
does not exist now, tbat it is over, auy
ill feeling or ill will on the part of any
one on any side of tbe contest, and the
fact thnt those who have already had experience in elections claimed this to
have been the cleanest election they
ever seen.
Tuesday ni^ht, June 12, 1900, was one
of thc pteasautest nights Cranbrook has
ever teen, and it will be remembered for
years,

POLITICAL SOOTHSAYERS A FAILURE
And an Unrighteous Combination
Turned Down by Voters Who
Would Not Be Herded.
♦'THE SILENT MAN" IS VICTORIOUS
The election in South East Kootenay,
just pasted, haa been full of surprises for
the political wiseacres. Not one prediction mnde by the old political war horses
was realized.
Early hi the seasou—before the campaign was fairly opened—Messrs, Harvey, Gnlbrnilh and Grace made a deal
with Mr. Ferule whereby Mr. Fernie, if
elected—and they had him surely elected
on paper—was to exert his influence in
the legislature in behalf of Fort Steele.
The latter purt of this proposition Mr.
Feruie honestly admitted to tbe editor
of the Herulil in n brief interview a few
weeks before election. Uuder this condition of nflairs Cranbrook, Moyie and
thc outlying camps felt that lhey would
practically be without representation If
Mr. Fernie wns elected, and cast about
for some olher candidate to support.
On patty Hues ibe voters of Cranbrook
are almost entirely straight liberals or
ouservalives, and the votes would make
it appear lhat the liberals are iu the as*
udaucy. Consultations were held between the local leaders of the parties
aud a committee appointed to select a
candidate upon whom Craubrook and
outlying towns could unite practically
solid. After much discussion Ihe committee decided upon Dr. King, a Martin
liberal, than whom there is uo more pop
u';ir man in South East Kootenay.    It
St. Eugene and Sullivan miues there
would be no Cranbrook, no Moyie, no
Kimberley, no Norlh Slar branch railroad, and possibly no C. V. R. road west
of Fernie.
Mr. Smith was dubbed by sor«e of his
opponents "The Silent Man;" he ma.- I
prove an illustration of the old proverb j
" Still waters run deep." At any rate
all citizens of Crnnbrook feel thut Mr.
Smith is a just aud honorable mnn, aud
that to the besl of his opportunities and
ability he will do atl possible to impartially advance lhe best interests of Soulh
Bast Kootenay. lie is said to be uufet-
teied by ante election promises.
For a somewhat warm campaign there
probably exists less sores and scars than
ever before resulted fiom a political
tight. The victors have been generous
und tbe defeated, like manly men, have
accepted their reverses with grace and
without bitterness—nt least this coudi
tion applies to Mr. Cosligan and bis sup
porters.
"All is well tbat euds well."

was thought for a lime that the question
wns settled, hut ufter sleeping over thc
proposition tbe doctor wisely concluded
not lo sacrifice his professional interests
for the benefit of bis countrymen, and
declined the highest honor that bis fellow .citizens could confer upon htm.
Steps for union of local and political
interests having thus failed, the field
was open and John li. Costigan, in party
mutters a conservative, announced himself as au independent candidate in opposition to the government; In this
coutse he bad tlie encouragement of
some of tbe most respected and substantial citizens of this district, and it cau be
truthfully said that no riding in the
province would have bad more able representation thau Soulh Kast Kooleiiay if
Mr. Costignn bud been sent to Victoria.
Mr. Costigan was to have had substantial aid from the coast In his campaign,
but through influences not necessary
to discus here, it was finally withheld;
it is an old saying that " alt happenings
are for the be&t," and it seems to be so
in this instance for It haa since transpired that Mr. Costignn's candidacy in
reality strengthened Mr. Fernie, and
wilh incieased financial resources would
probably have encompassed the election
of the latter.
The Martin liberals, led by a number
of young men who find in a warm political campaign one of the greatest pleasures of their lives, now began to cast
about for a candidate after their own
heart, and iu union with the better aud
more broad-guage element of Port
Sleele, brought out Mr. K. C. Smith, a
milling and ranching man, an old citizen
nnd highly respected by all who know
him. Nor is he without claims lo having done something for the advancement
of tbe district, as a little more than two
yeai b ago be went to Spokane and closed
the deal whereby the present Sullivan
Group Miuing Company was formed; ll
i., uot necessary to comment upou the
benefits conferred upon this country by
thul company-   Without the North Star,
Tbe Prophets' Calculations Were All Upset

The total number of ballots cast falls
several hundred short of tbnt registi red,
but that is uot tu be wondered ut, asiua
country like this—a land of magnificent
distances—where the voting-places an
miles apart nnd where, iu many in
stances, the voter would have to travel a
whole day over rough trails, to deposit
bis ballot, lhe only wonder is ihat the
vole wus noi still lighter.

POLITICAL   SNAP SHOTS
Taken Around Town by  tbe Hone  Editor
Since thc Counting of tbe
Ballots.
" Hutch"—We can take our medicine
gracefully, I hope.
Euie Small—Well, old man, tbe hood
buns wou, didn't tbey?
Heard from a very saintly old man in
Fort Steele—Well, by G—!
Arch. Leitch—*There are just 8-6 beautiful Sons of Annanias in Cranbrook.
Although Costigan bad b scrutineer at
Wasa, be did uot receive a vote there.
Hyde—Costigan don't give me a bit of
consolation for lotiug a bet of (too on
him.
Charley Edwards—I thought I had
landed 40 Fernie votes in Cranbrook, bul
somehow or nuother 33 flopped off.
Hutch"—It mnde my heart ache nnd
brought the tears to mv eyes to make
Kdwards and Beattie take the Book.
McDermot—The Tro^perlcr is an "influential paper" beyond all question; il
has never failed to beat auy mau it supposed.
Archie Leitch, Jr —1 s; ent nearly two
weeks with an old sinner before converting him, ami then learned tbat he had
no vote.
Medhtlrst— There were just three Mnr-
tin men in town nt the opening of the
campaign; ' Doc" King, Beattie atul
myself.   Ou Saturday there was 123.
Archie—Well, Huuson bow's Costigan going to do up here? Hanson—All
right, that's nil right—you leave all that
with mej I'll lake cure of thai—and he
did. Cosligno's name did not appear on
h solitary ballot,
J, H- Costignn: I have regrets, of
couise; largely because my own town
gave me so light a vote, but bad il have
been otherwise Fernie would bave been
elected; us the general result now stands
I would rather be defeated than to have
been elected w th Martin endorsed. I
believe now that if I had uolbcen a candidate that Mr. Fernie would bave lost
his deposit, as il is very probable that
Mr. Smith would have received op per
cent, of the vote given to me.
[Scene, Fort Steele; time, jnst after
the close of the voting booths on Saturday): Fernieile: Now Mr. Costlgau-
ite, the labor of the day is closed, lei's
set down and see who's the best guesaer
as to tbe remit; uow, what do you think
Cranbrook has done? Cosligtinile; Ob,
t's dead easy, Mr. Fcrnielte; Costigan wilt get 120, Smith 76, and Fernie
10. Fernieile (arising angrily); Well,
if you ure going to talk like a blaiikety
blank fool, we'll quit; I know of 40 sure
iu Craubrook! (And tbe ballots showed
lhat Mr. Fertile'* lieutenants could claim
33 Son's of Aniinnius in Cranbrook, but
7 Fernie votes being cast.
It Would Result in a Vote of Want
of Confidence in the Government,
POSSIBILITIES WHICH MiQHT FOLLOW
Col. Baker, tbe founder of "Happy
Craubrook,'' and for many years a cabinet officer of British Columbia, is home
lor a two weeks rest, before startiug for
England, where he wiU rejoin Mrs. Baker for a vocation, oat in the meantime
looking nfter Crnubrook's advancement.
Tbe colonel is looking hale and hearty,
and appears to be growing younger,
rather thnn older.
Thinking the veteran's views rewarding the present muddle to British Colombian  politics wonld prove interesting
reading, he WU asked by   a  Herald reporter:
'What wilt be tbe outcome, colonel,
of the political conditions existing in
this province?"
ln regard to tbat it might be well to
go back a few months to the conditions
which kd up to tbe calling of an election in the province. Wheu the governor called upon Mr. Martin lo act as
premier, tbat gentleman was absolutely
without a following in the house; consequently be had to go to tbe country for
endorsement by the people, and the peo-
pie have declared in the strongest terms
that they will bave nothing to do with
him. Of 35 members but 7 nre elected
as his supporters. Tbe remaining 30
memben are distributed between three
factions, but whom nevertheless were
e'ecte-d upon the issue of Martin oronli-
Martin, and will under no conditions
lend themselves to Mr. Martiu to aid him
in lhe formation of a government. Tbe
issue can only be determined on the
meeting of the legislative assembly,
which in decency should be called together with the least possible delay. A
vote of want of confidence in tbe gov-
ernnieDtw.il then be put and carri. d.
This will bt a coudcumaiiun of the lieutenant governor and force Sir Wilfred
Lturier to take act-.on—either in dismissing the present lieutenant governor and
appointing another, or by suspending
bim and calling upon tbe chief justice to
act temporarily in his place."
"What, in your opinion, would follow,
Mr. Baker?"
" In thai event, which will certainly
occur, the governor ot his representative
will call upon someone else to form a
government—-either a member of tbe
bouse or au outsider. With a good,
strong man for a leader a powerful government ran be formed—one such as
his province needs to successfully foster
its rapidly increasing importance as a
mining, agricultural and manufacturing
country."
And if a failure to organize follows?"
Another election would occur within
12 months."
STOLE   A   BALLOT   BOX.
Ota Sudtlsoder Has Qottea Into Very Serious Trouble.
Last Sunday nigbt at about 10:45 the
Wasa ballot box was stolen from tbe
oflice ofthe custodian of ballots, Thomas
Kde, at Fort Steele, while be was in an
luiost helpless stale of intoxication.
A short time before tbat hour Constable Barnes took Kde into a hotel and
left bim there. It is alleged that a few
moments later Dan Stadtiander, a prospector by occupation, came into the
hall end took Kde to his office. Soon
afler, it is said, Stadtiander was seen
with the missing ballot box in bis possession, having it partially concealed
under his coat. What became of lhe
box afterward had not been reliably
learned by Wednesday.
Stadtiander was arrested and on Mor.-
1 iy was given a preliminary examination before Gold Commissioner Armstrong, He was defended by Attorney
Harvey, who, upon Mr. Armstrong stating that unless thedefendeut could show
more evidence than had been produced
in his favor he would commit him for
tiial, secured an adjournment until today in order to allow the prifouet lo
sober up."
It is alleged by the prisoner's friends
that .the box was taken simply as the
drunken feat ofa man not in bis senses,
and that no crime was intended.
Whether this is u fact or not, it is very
liable to prove a most serious affair for
the prisoner, as tlie laws beating upon
tbe commission of such crimes are very
severe.
Johu R. Costigan, upon receipt of a request from the government, went to
Fort Steele this morning to appear for
tbe prosecution.
Barker Is Found.
W. W. Barker, the engineer who had
charge of the installation of the Nortli
Star tramway, and who ao mysteriously
disappeared nearly three months ago,
has been beard from by his wife. It
seems that he wandered away in a fit of
temporory aberration, and when he
came to a full realization of .conditions
he found himself in the state of Washington, and notified his family of his
Whereabouts. At the time of his disappearance he was having much trouble
with (he construction of the tramway,
and it is presumed the affair preyed so
upon bis mind as to throw it offhalauce
for the time being. CRANBROOK  HERALD

PRIDE OF THE VILLAGE.
UY LINCOLN BTEFFENB.
Mrs. Silvester Dean Leveen was ji
ishing ber brnss knocker, lier long,
thin bauds rubbed uud rubbed till Mi
little white curls uu bet* forehead danced
like street children. Yet tlu* labor luul
no perceptible effect. Tbe metal shone
like light, but so it did when abe began
to clean it. li bad shone like thut yesterday und the day before, uud, indeed, every duy for lib yeurs, There
wus a .smooth circle nil nround tliu
knocker when- her dellcnte bunds bud
worn iuto tbe hard, black wood of the
door. Nevertheless the old lndy nibbed
away just, us she bad done every morning since tin* spring of IR„.1, wlieu she
wus brought, u bride, .Into lhe house,
-ibe was the pride of Greenwich village
then, and she meant to be still.
Oo this pnrticulnr frosty morning
Mrs. Leveen tarried longer tlmn usual
at her task. After the lion's bend was
satisfactory oven to her sharp eyes, she
worked on. lint it was evident hi the
glances she shot ncross Hunk sired thai
lier attention was nol given wholly to
the work of her bonds, Neither wns It
diverted to tier customary inspection of
the neighbor's knockers. Theirs glistened like hens, und, besides, every time
she looked up tier eyes turned to but
one door, that of the house in front ol
which stood two sturdy hoi'BCS nnd ti
truck,
Pretty soon the door opened and a
' young mnn iu n carter's blouse came out.
He saw thc old lady ucross the street,
though ho pretended not to. Uo busied
himself ostentatiously about the horses'
bends for n moment und then turned
hack to the truck, Mrs. Leveen bad
Been him. She bonl herself earnestly
to the knocker und in n few strokes lln
I'-bed it olV. Then she faced towards 1 he
street and fixed the trucktnnn with her
eyes till he hnd to look up.
"Good morning, Aunt Martha," he
said, ns he doffed his cap.
She beckoned to him to crime to her,
"Good morning, Percy," she answered
pleasantly, ns he npproaohed ber, cap In
bund. "Come in a moment, I wish tn
speak with you."
The interview he bud drended for
weeks wns upon him now. He knew
from the first it wns Inevitable, but day
after day he hnd put ti olT, omitting his
usual calls on tits a uut, and avoiding Iter
sight and summons, Now thai she bad
caught him ho was glad, As he followed the old lndy into her prim, comfortable sitting-room hu made n pitiful
figure of humility, but in the meekness
of bin soul there was the cheerfulness
of finality.
"Sit down, Percy," sbe. suid, in the
sweet-toned voice be loved.
He took the chair she Indicated, and
shn Rented herself in her old inciter.
"Percy, dear," she begun, "istliis true
that I bear; you menu lo mnrry this
girl?"
"Yes, Aunt Martha, I was going to
toll you, but knowing ns ynu were agin
It—knowing that you would not like
to huve me do so— I waa afraid to come
to you about it."
"Don't twirl your cap, my dearj gentlemen don't do that, yon know."
He stuck bis cup between bis knees.
"I am sorry. Percy, you felt that way.
It is iny intent ion always to he kind
and sympathetic, Vou should have
been quitcsure 1 would have henrd yonr
story through with understanding.
Now, lell me everything.    She is the
daughter, I am told, of n Gorman In
Hudson street."
"That's right, aunt, Her father bus
the- biggest corner grocery over then*,
und he ha-fl made bis pilc-I mean haa
mnde money since he's been there."
"How long bus he been hero?"
"Going mi, in years. He's utmost nn
old Nintb-wiirder now. He's some in
polities, and Ids fondly te right In it."
"Percy!    1 never knew Ibctii."
"I know, but you wouldn't. It ain't
my fault. I wanted to have them nil
over to mother's so us you could Ih*. introduced to them."
The old ludy looked u.s though she
•would answer this, but she did not. She
was silent u moment before she proceeded.
"So ber father is a grocer?"
"Yeai like Mr. Jamison, wbo you
liko well enough."
"Mr. Jamison Is a gentleman, my dear,
The misfortunes of his family can never
niter tbat. The Jamisons nro of tho old-
pat Greenwich families on both sides.
He in a grocer by necessity. This person of whom we nre speaking is one by
choice."
"Well, Aunt Martini, It's as good as
being irtruclvnan, and Iw-tter,"
Mra. r-eveen, winced.
"You might havo been a judge, like
your father, or a senator, liko your
grandfather. I wanted you to enter political life."
"Politics is pretty lOW down these
days," Percy remarked. "II ain't whnl

The rending publio huve evidence
put before them almost every day of
tbe healing powers of Dr. Williams-
Pink Pills. It ia sometimes nsked
whether these cures nre permunout,
and iu leply to this wo would say tbnt
a case which recently citneto tho attention of the Mail indicates that the
results following the use of this medioine are as lasting ns they nre beneficial, Some years ago Mrs. Robert
Webster, who is well known iu Granby, parsed through a very serious illness in which her condition very Dearly bordered upon collapse. Her blood
appealed to huve almost tnruod to water She was very weak, her appetite
fickle, and she suffered from severe
headaches. Mrs. Webster had the bane-
fit of excel'out inoJicul advice, hut apparently without avail, aa she seemed
steadily growing worse. Tbe least elation would fatigue her, and finally
Bhe was for n lima unnblo to do her
hoUBBWcrk and was confined to bed.
Her husbaud suggested the use of Dr.
Williams' Piuk Pills and purchased a
few boxes. Mrs. Wt hater had uot been
taking the pills long b fore she found
lu-r.-elf growing Birougei*. Her bead-
achfs dlsup,oared, her appetite improved, new blood appear, d to be
coursing through her veins, and her
nerves ngain became strong nud active.
After using the pills for a couple cf
months sho felt as well us ever she had
done in her life, andoould do ber house
work without feeling the fatigue thnt*
hud formerly made her life so miserable. This, na already indicated, hap
peued some yonrs ago,and in t'.e period
that bus elapsed Mrs Webster hns enjoyed tbe best of health, 8lic says tbnt
if she feels at any timo a little rou
down she t'ikrs a few dosoj of Dr. Wil-
iauiB' Pink Pills and is soon all right,
nud she thinks there is no medioine to
equal them Mr. Wob.-iter, speaking of
his wife's cure, Bays Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills did her a thousand dollars
worth of good, nml friends who knew

and saw the effect upon Iter, say the

wo would say givo Dr. Willinm-*' Pink

of  days.     While   Iho  men  of  the   part)
bunted ilia surrounding country for fresh
■in-ill nml tlie women spent  tbe lime in
washing clothes, tho children wnudered
about iu the vicinity of tin* camp picking
berries, carrying with them, as the story
has ll, 'om* ot those old fashioned blue
buckets.' Old timers sny thut the blue
bucket was an Important part ot the
Argonaut's outIII in those days.
"One day ut noon the children hurried
into camp, two of tbem struggling with
the weight of their bucket, the bottom
covered with a number Of pieces of yellow metal. They snid they bad Hied to
dig out of tbo ground some deep rooted
bush hearing a flower Unit pleased them,
Intending to plant lt iu ibe bucket and
take It along, and they bud found the
pit s of metal lu the ground. Everybody gathered nbout the Iiml, nud nobody
could make'anything of it. Tho metal
couldn't be of brass, of course, they
knew, but it might bo some kind of unlive copper, ns it eould be honlcti out (bit
wiib case. The pieces varied fi\>m the
slsc of a pumpkin seed to nu egg.
"The argonauts bud uo use for u -single
pound of useless weight, and when the
party started off nil tlie metal was
thrown away but a few pieces which the
children were allowed to keep for jack-
stones, nnd heavy jack-stones ihey were
too, Of course when Yrckn was reached
ihe piny things were recoguincd as Kohl.
Then there was u stampede over the Oregon lava bods for the Blue Bucket mine,
imi snow had fallen east of the Cascade
ranee, and ibe track was lost. Two or
three of the party spent their lives looking for the lost placer ground nud died In

Some of our foreign contemporaries
contain the Interesting Information
that tbe width of a lightning Hash bas
been measured recently. On Aug. 28
last according to n German journal,
George lttimker of the Hamburg observatory obtained a photograph of a
holt of lightning which struck the tower neat- tbe observatory, ln this case
the point struck was known and consequently its distance from tho observer, which was 000 meters. Knowing the focal distance of the objective
of the camera and the field illuminated, as shown by the negative, It was
possible to calculate tho breadth of
thc gassy mass rendered Incandescent
by the current. Comparative measurements with tbo Image of the tower
showed that the discharge bad a
breadth of about five millimeters
(about one-fifth of nn Inch). This result closely concurs with that obtained by Plltschikoff at Odessa In 1805,

A Wonderfal Fire Alarm.
A fire alarm recently Invented Ib a
combination of the grnphophone and

alarm one of the grnphophone machines Is placed on each floor of a
building and couuected with tho telephone lire alarm system. For each
machine n record Is prepnred. For Instance, the grnphophone on the second
floor of a building would contain the
record, "There Is a lire on the second
floor," etc. This record Is then adjusted so that these words are repeated Into the telephone by the expanding of a thermostat whenever a fire
occurs. In this way tho origin of a
tire Is located lmmodlnt_d_; nnd automatically. Tiie alarm nlso lights tbe
electric lights lu the building, sets a
red light biasing iu front of the building to guide the firemen and sounds
the alarm Into the street through a
giant megaphone—so we are told.—

AT EMPIRE CITY.
Prospects Being Developed and Settlers Com*
Ing In Rapidly.
George Douglas, a prospector from the
vicinity of Empire City, was in town
Monday and Tuesday. Mr. Douglas has
two claims, the Bluebell and Bluebird,
which adjoin, in that vicinity, and have
two ledges traversing the entire length
of each, one being 2}. feet wide and tbe
other .0 inches; no assays have been had
as yet, although the quartz is generously
spotted with galena and there is some
indications of copper and gold. Mr.
Douglas says they have been throwing
out considerable stuff resemblingcarbon
ate-, and it is lo be tested by assays.
Further over the " Bishop Boys" are
working their claims; they have been
di ifting alotigsiile tbe lead and are now
crosscut liny, or about to do so, the appearances at lhe present lime, it is said
being quite sh l i*-factory.
Man) prospectors are coming in either
to search for mineral or woik their as
sessuicnts. The snme conditions nlso
apply to lhe Sand Creek district.
Many settlers ate also coming Into the
country, at least one or two ranches per
week beiug taken up The outlook for
the entire country iu every way is said
lo be very eucoutaging.

WHERE?
IS THERE ANIMOSITY AT FERNIE?
Do tbe citizens of Fernie cherish ill
will toward Craubrook on account of tin
result of lhe recent election ?
It is so reported, hut Tbe Herald can
not believe that any such condition pre
vails, unless it be on ibe part of a small
minority, whose hopes and ambitious
bave been blasted.
Mr. Feruie and his friends expected a
much larger vole for that gentleman in
Cranbrook. Likewise, Mr. Costigan
and his friends expected many more
votes fur thut gentleman in Pernie than
he received; still, while lhey were disappointed, lhey are nol "sor.." Tht
fact of the matter is, if Ihere is any one
who has a cause for complaint against
Cranbrook on account of bis trea'meni
by its voters it is Mr. Costigan. He is
one of its most respected citizens, and
in point of ability is the peer of any
man in K;ist Kootenay; still bis fellow-
citizens turned him down fur a man who
is very rarely withiu the limits of the
towu and in no way identified wilh it
locally. Yet Mr. Cosligan and his
friends accepted their defeat gracefully,
attended a banquet giveu by tbe victors
on Tuesday night, and made the best cf
what wus their misfortune.
If Mr, Feruie and his friends have any
occasion lo feel disgruntled wilh any
one, it is wilh the people of Fort Steele
with whom he made a deal for his support, and wbo did not "deliver the
goous"—-" could not deliver lhe goods"
would probably be the heller way to put
it, as there can be uu doubt uf ihe sin-
ceiity of their Intentions,
Mr. Ferule's expert nice during the
past campaign will probably be of value
lo him. lie has acquired au experience
entirely new to hiui and others have
been well paid to let him acquire it.
They were not Cranbiook people, and t>s
Mr, Fernie and his friends ore men of
intelligence and worldly judgment they
ceitalnly will not harbor any ill-feelings
lowatd Cranbrook fur not giving wnai
was not here fur, or promised to Ihem.
