President Van Home the Leader of

Operating Department Will Soon
Have Control of the Road as
Far as Cranbrook.
Lost Saturday evening al 7 o'clock,
the special train from the west, with Sir
William Van Home, president of the C.
P. R., and party arrived in Cranbrook.
The train consisted of two private cars,
Saskatchewan and Chimplain, baggage
car and caboose, ami was switched onto
the siding just west of the depot for the
As it was dark when the special arrived the parly soou iudulgdd iu their
dinner, aud after a sociable smoke,
sought their berths. They were tired,
as they had been on the road for several
days, and sight seeing is wearisome eveu
to a lot of railroad officials in palace
The rear coach, the Saskatchewan,
was President Van Home's private cur,
and wilh him were R. B. Angus, W. W.
Olgilvie, Dr. Peterson, pesideut of Mc*
Gills University, E. B. Asler, M. J. Haney, aud Mr. Alexander, private secretary
to President Van Home. The other
coach, the Champlain, was occupied by
Superintendent Whyte, R.J. Wbitla, of
Winnipeg, Wm. Cross, master mechanic
ofthe C. P. R., and D. V. Coyle.
The next morning the parly arose early and took their first glimpse of " Beautiful Cranbrook," and they were unanimous in tbeir opinion thnt it wus a magnificent site for a city. Several ofthe
party, who had not kept posted ou tbe
rapid progress made by this portion of
the country, were surprised to see a town
of such proportions. The yards, buildings and work done on the roundhouse
were duly Inspected by the officials, and
it is sttongly intimated that Cranbrook is
to be very much benefitted by the visit
ofthe C. P. R. president.
The party left about 8 o'clock for the
east. They will visit Macleod aud Edmonton, and then return to Winnipeg.
A Change In Plans.
Instructions were received from Macleod on Monday last to suspend work on
the round house, piling for the foundation of which were being driven in the
yards here. Inquiry of purti«a in charge
of the work elicited the information that
some changes are contemplated iu the
original plans, but just what the changes
are could uot be learned as the revised
plans had not yet been received. Evidently they effect only the round house,
as work is progressing on the depot
building and on the pipe line to convey
water to the new tank.
Will Help Cranbrook.
Superintendent Whyte stated while
here that if tbe roadbed was fouud to be
as good as they had reason to believe it
was, between Cranbrook and Macleod,
that poriion of the line would soou be
turned over lo the operating department. This would prove a great benefit
to Cranbrook in many ways. Il will uot
be many weeks before the whole line
will be turned over, as wotk on ballast-
iny is progressing rapidly.

Tuesday Afternoon.
DiKD—At the St. Eugene hospital, Tiles"
day, October iH,  1R9H, at 4 o'clock,
p.m., John McMahon, aged aS years-
Such is the brief record which is written upon the last page of the life of John
McMahon, a young man of great promise in the field of business, aud oue of
Nature's noblest works in physical appearance.
Just one week ago Mr. McMahon was
taken down with the prevailing fever,
and becoming rapidly worse he was, on
Saturday last, removed from his home
in Moyie City to the St. Eugene hospital
and put under the care of a physician
and trained nurse. The disease had secured too strong a hold on the patient,
however, aud there was no help for him.
Seeing that his case was hopeless his
wife was hurriedly summoned from
Moyie and reached his bedside ouly
about an hour before his death.
Deceased was born on the 22nd of
June, 1870, at Grand Porks, North Dakota, and there he spent his boyhood nud
early manhood. Iu June, 1S97, he came
to East Kootenay, accompanied by bis
brother Frank, and located iu the then
wilderness where now stands Moyie City.
Here the brothers proceeded lo carve
for themselves a forluue. They erected
a Jlarge building and stocked it with
general merchandise, at the same time
conducting au hotel. List summer,
finding their quarters too cramped, they
put up a fine hotel building, modern in
design aud finish, and furnished in first
class style. The brothers were in a fait
way to accumulate a competence, but
"Jack" as his friends were pleased lo
call him, cannot assist in its further accomplishment.
Tbe deceased leaves a wife and two
children, a boy and a girl, and Thk
Herald, in connection with many people in South East Kootenay, extends iis
sympathy to the bereaved wife and
The funeral took place at the St. Eugene Mission at 11 o'clock this morning.

That Can Come to Sooth
East Kootenay.
"Craubrook continues to grow," is a
coin mon expression by those who get
around to this town every three or fuitr
weeks. Yes, Craubrook continues to
grow, and there are many reasons for it,
Craubrook is the best town iu Hast
Kootenay today from any standpoint
the question might be considered, and
yet she is only three or four months old.
Cranbrook has been growing from the
day it started to the present lime, and
there is enough building iu sight now to
keep her growing for several months to
Cranbrook continues to grow. So
does South Mast Kootenay. With such
mineral wealth as has been located aud
only partially developed litis country
must necessarily continue to grow, and
with iis growth naturally follows the
growth of iis commercial center, Craubrook. OM mining men who have given South blast Kootenay a careful study
unite iu saying lhat now* since it has
transportation facilities, it is bound to
make one of lhe greatest miuirg districts iu the world.
There will be other growing towns in
South Hast Kootenny, and as tbey grow,
Cranbrook will continue to grow, for
their growth means the growth of thoir
lisiributing point.
"It looks as if the C. P. R. intended
to woik a big number of men here,"
said one man who had just visited the
yards, and seen for himself evidences of
the thousands the C. P. K. are expending in the way of permanent improv-
ments. 'that man was right. The C.
P. K. will employ many men at Cranbrook, and as lhe needs of lhe road in
crease, that number will be greatly aug-
umeuted. Yes, Craubrook will continue
to grow.
And on nearly every side of Cranbrook.
many within a radius cf three or four
miles, are rich prospects where strikes
have beeu made of such importance
lhat capital is being attracted to them.
These prospects are beiug developed
and the number of meu employed on
them is increasing every day. They
buy supplies, and those supplies are
where the large stocks are kept aud
prices are the lowest, aud that is Cranbrook. jVes, Cranbrook continues to
grow. She possesses lhe true basis for a
substantial growth. She need-* no
booming. She is a boom in herself, and
is bound to make a great aud prosperous city.

satisfied. Tho advocates of absolute

OUCO upon a timo, when Schreiner of
the Columbia Ptshtng olub wasn't us
"Ily" us lm is now, he passed bis good
money over to a mun who played with
loaded dlco, Porhupa the memory of
that sad night bud something to tin
with the trick Mr, Sebreitier has played
on his friend, Robert .Mill. Bosltloa,
jfr. Subroinor litis heard of tbe jumping
frog of Calaveras tbat led OU shot.
At any late, when the eluh left west
New York ono morning leeeutly, on
pisoutortul pb'usures bent, it wus Mr.
Schreiner wbo made tho proposition
that $10 bo awitrdcd out of the treasury
to the member catching the largest fish.
Everybody agreed, for every man in tbo
Columbia Fishing club thinks he's the
only ono "in it" when it comes to capturing tbo club'B legitimate prey.
When tlie day's sport wub over, Mill
and Schreiner each claimed to have
caught the biggest tish. Mill's certainly
looked bigger, but Schreiner contended
that the size of fish, whale or sucker,
whs reckoned by weight. Thut of course
could not be deuied, bo tbo scales were
brought out at the clubhouse. Schrei-
ner's fish was four inches shorter thaa
Mill's and of the samo breed, lt wasn't
a bit bigger iu girth cither. Hut tbe
scales showed it weighed a quarter of
uu ounce more than Mill's.
"Sure, Bob," said Schreiner, after he
got tbe $10.  "He's a lead eater aud has
been gobbling up tho bullets shot In
practice by the soldiers Ht Forts Hamilton and Wadswortb."
The Hsb was ait open, nud. sure
euough, he bad a pound of bullets in
bim, Sobretuer bad shot them. Hy
merely pumped lend iuto that tish
when no one was looking. Then ho

It seimied an easy enough matter, and

"Great luck having such lovely weather, eh, Max?"
" Lovely indeed, Sir Robert. But pray

Sir Robert laughed—the laugh of a
strong man who is thoroughly pleased
with himself,
Indeed be bad reason to bo pleased
Very few men hnd ever climbed tho beetling cliffs of the Aiguille Vert ut ull. Fewer still could boast of having accomplished
tho feat within tbo hours of a single day.
Half an hour later they reached tbo edge
of tho ico. Tho sun had now set. and tho
air, chill with approaching night, was no
longer clear as it.had been. Pole wreaths
of smoky mist bung in light bands, which
teemed lo shift and ohatigu kaleldoscoplu-

Still roped together, as they had been
during the entire climb, thoy crossed tbe

yawning crevasses.

A big, broad shouldered, good looking
young fellow ot abdut eight and twenty
was sitting lua ratlier dingy little room
lit Hlooiusbiiry answering a letter ho had
just received,
Harry Ballard had been looking out for
a chance of accompanying a reading party
abroad during tbo long vacation, and by
good luck an oven better billet had come
bis way. An old friend of bis father, a
Mr. Pfolkos, had written to hlm to engage
his services OS ttltorand general bear leader to bis sou, young Kverard Kfolkes, dur
lug a forthcoming Swiss tour.
Ho bad always win.ted to gel abroad,
and now tho chance tuid fallen his way ho
was it-solved to make thu must of It
Young Kverard, his pupil, was a thor
ougbly inni lad, and the whole expedition

trudged afoot through lovely valleys, up
turf clad slopes, over rock bound, luagnlli-
ci-nl passes, drinking iu tlie clear air and
enjoying themselves rather like two school*
boys than a tutor and his pupil
Kverat'd wanted to climb a mountain
Harry rather discouraged the Idea Hu
told the boy of the fato of his undo, Sir
Robert Billiard.
"Vos, 1 remember hearing of that when
1 was quite small," answered Rvorard
sympathetically, "Wero tbu bodies over
"No, never," said Harry, "and probably never will ho."
Tbey walked In silence a little way
then Harry said:
"Do you know, Kvorard, I should like
rather to see the place Suppose wu go up
to Montvortf Wo can do It In two days
from Chumoutil. Your father put no rosin- tion on our movements,"
"Theu lot's go," replied tho boy keenly
Mi'invert bad becmuo quite a fashionable resort within tho last few years. Tbe
•Md   Inn bad   lawn   much enlarged    It
boasted all sorts of modem Improvements
—among them a drawing room, a band
nnd a visitors' book.
The latter Harry was studying when he
was startled by the names, "Mr. James
Ronnie and Miss Reunle and maid, Glasgow."
"My cousin, by .love!" ho mtitturE-d.
Be hod soon nothing of them for yoars
—not since Mr. Reunle hnd come in for
Sir Robert's money. The daughter, Muriel, he had never seen. James Reiinie he
knew by repute ns u rather bard and canny Scotchman, and here tbey were staying
at the same hotel.
They met tbut evening In the drawing
"And this Is my daughter Muriel." Ren-
Die said.
Harry looked up uud saw a soft dot of a
girl In a black evening gown, who gavo
bim a warm. Impulsive handshake
Somehow Harry and blsohorge staid on
at Montvert for a whole fortnight,
Harry was a new mun. The luevltabts
was Imppenlng, Only the poor fellow had
not fully realized it Boob successive day
was plunging hlm more deeply lu lovo
with his cousin's daughter;
Then the Kennies gavo a picnic It
turned out a brilliant, sunny day, and It
was decided to go up tin* valley to a wood
near tho lower end of the Aiguille Vert
glacier lt was at this picnic it for tho
flrst time Struck Mr. HtUiniu that Harry
was a trlllo more attentive lo Muriel than
there was any occasion for. Ho did not
hay anything, but be mado up his mind to
two things—first, to watch the young
oouple pretty carefully that day; secondly,
to leave Montvert tomorrow,
Harry and Muriel slipped off among tha
trees and soon found themselves quito
alone. Thoy strolled down to where from
under Its arch of muddy lco tbo glaolei
river started on its foamy career and sout-
ed themselves near by on a great mossy
Btono under n pino tree. Tliu Mazing sun
made tho shade most welcome, and tbo
two sat there quietly drinking lit thu
warm scent of tbo woods.
"lm afraid our holiday will bo soon
over," sho said. "Wo have to be home by
tho 1st of October."
Harry experienced a curious shock.
With extraordinary suddenness he roaliised
what life would bo without Muriel.
"Muriel," ho said quickly and earnestly; "Muriel, will you care?"
Apparently sho did, for when, flvo minutes later, an Interested spectator walked
quietly up behind thom over tho carpet ol
noiseless pine needles he saw a sight that
made his smooth face wrlnklo with rage.
Tho two cousins were sitting closer together than strict coitslnshlp altogether
entailed, nnd Muriel's head was leaning
on Harry's shoulder.
James Reunle lost his temper.
"You sneaking young scoundrel I" ha
said, with a sudden emphasis that mads
tho lovers jump to their feot.
"I bog your pardon, sir," Bald Harry
vory quietly. Thore was a dangerous
gleam in his ore.    " You wero saying"—
"That you area schooling fortune hunter. Your undo cut you off, and now you
think to regain tho money in a low, underhand way by marrying my daughter I"
Craslil A sharp, rciidlngsound, followed
by a heavy fall, mado all threo jump back.
A great pioco of lco, loosened by tha
heat, had fallen away from tho glacier,
and something clso too—something dark
and soft—had slipped from tho broken mass
and Iny limply on tho debris below.
For a moment no ono moved.
Then Harry stepped forward and stood
by tho fallen figure. Tho others followed.
It was the body of a man Ho was dressed
ln rough tweeds, and his upturned face
had uquict, peaceful expression. He might
havo died an hour ago
Instinctively tbo two men removed their
hats     Then Harry looked at Mr. Ronnie.
"You know who tt is?" he said.
Yes, It's Sir Robert," ho answered la
"Three years ago I waa troubled

Into the sliudo of the pines.    As they did

"Your father has told you what It was

"Yes, dear," sho answered.   "And ho
told   mo,   too,   about  your  suggestion.

who writhe under its pangs can imagine the joy of ouo who has been freed

who believes it his duty to lot others
kuow how u cure can bo found. Mr.
Folltonham is a farmer, nnd like ull
who follow this urihunis but honorable
calling, is subject to much exposure
li was this exposure that brought on
his trouble und caused him so much
sutlVring before he wus rid of it. Ho
says:—"In the spring of 1807 I contracted rhoumatism. Throughout the
whole summer I suffered from it, and
libont the first of October it became so
bad that I could not got out of (tbe
house. The pains wero located iu my
hip and buck, and what I suffered can
hardly be expressed. I bocnitio so helpless 1 could not dress myself without
aid. Eventually tho trouble spread to
iny bands and arms, and at times these
would lose all feeling nnd become useless. In November 1 began using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, antl aftor taking
four boxes began to improve. After
using six boxes tho pains and soreness
bad all gone and I was able to do a
hard day's work. I intend using a few
more boxes more us a precautionary
measure, and 1 would earnestly advise
thoso suflVring from this painful
trouble to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
a fair trial and be mado well.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of tho disease. They
