If Reports are True  More Rich
Strikes Have Been Made on
Perry Creek,
On Tuesday the new compressor wa-?
started at the Sullivan. Owing to tome
of the parts having been left out when
the machinery was shipped, the plant
could not be put in operation as quickly
as anticipated.
Superintendent Burdsall was in town
Tuesday, and said tn substance; " While
we started the compressor today, the
output will not be materially increased
right away. I want to get everything
working smoothly and so that I know
nothing will give out before starting in
to work the plant to its fnll capacity.
"As to the uiine.it is looking better
than it ever did .and steadily improving."
The Herald has only this much to Bay
in addition: The time is not far distant
when the output of the Sullivan, the S*.
Eugene and North Star, will astonish the
world, collectively and separately.
Perry Creek Still Conli| to the Front With
New and Rich Discoveries.
J. H. Taylor, the Perry Creek mining
man, was in recently and says lhat Dan
Monroe and his partner, H. Kllers, have
made another great discovery on Ferry
Creek; if the reports are realized the
find will prove to be one of tbe most important ever made in East Kootenay.
Mr. Taylor stated that he had not been
to thc new discovery himself, but that he
had been informed by Mr. Monroe that
he had made 10 locations on a big ledge
that showed much free gold and would
also show big beads of the same metal
by roasting.
Mr. Taylor also says that tbe Kootenay
nnd Pei ry Creek Co.'s big Petri lead is
still panning gold, it is said, as the cross

Stockholders Visit the Salllvai.
Last Saturday G. W. Hull and.wife
of Toledo, Ohio, and B. W. Laylon and
wife of Wapak-JiieU, O., accompanied by
Cul. Ridpath of Spokaue visited the Sullivan mine. The Ohio people are no novices in mining matters and were highly
pleased with what they saw.
Col. Ridpath, loo, seemed very well
pleased, (here being a vast difference tn
its appearance at this time compared
with his visit made mouths previously.
If tbe colouet is a mau who ever enter-
taius any regrets for the past, undoubtedly one of hte principal ones is that he

The members of various Baptist societies now resident in Cranbrook met
at tbe home of Rev. I), lloliord on
Wednesday evening, August 22, to con-
aider tbe advisability of organizing us n
cburcb. The nature and importnnee of
a New Testament church theu received
due and careful deliberation. Hach
member present believed a Christian
church lo be a congregation of baptised
believers in Christ, worshipping together; associated in the faith and fellowship
of the gospel, practicing its precepts, observing its ordinances, recognizing and
receiving Christ as tbeir Supreme Law
giver and ruler, ami taking His word ns
their sufficient audexclusivcrule of faith
and practice in all matters of religion,
unanimously agreed to organize nt ouce.
This was done by uniting in mutual covenant to sustain the reialionsandobliga
lions prescribed by llie gospel, to be governed by the laws of Christ's bouse, aud
to maintain public worship and the
preaching of the gospel.
Articles of faith were adopted, us also
a name by which the church shall lie
known—The Cranbrook First Baptist
Church. Officers were then elected, Rev.
O. Holford, If. D., being chosen hr their
Rev. P. H. McKwen, of New West
minster, B. C, superintendent of B iptist
missions, presided.
Baptist church service will be held in
Wentworth hall every alternate Lord's
day, at 7:30 p.m., until further notice;
also a service of prayer and bible study
every Thursday evening at 8, to which
all are welcome.
The Design of the Church.
The evident design of our Savior in
founding and preserving churches iu tlie
world, was that lhey should tie monuments in the midst of guilty men, bear-
Ing perpetual witness against the wickedness of the world ami to the goodness
of God; but especially tbat lhey should
be living testimonials to the v ork ol redemption, the light of the world, and the
aalt of Uie earth.
They constitute the effective instrumentality by which tlie will of God und
the knowledge of salvation through
Christ are made known lo meu; at the
same time they form homes for saints on
earth, sheep-folds for the safety of the
flock, and schools for tbe instruction and
training of the children uf the covenant,
whUe they encourage the pe tie tent and
warn tbe careless.
As a church we shall endeavor to well
understand our high calling and seek to
accomplish it, according to lhc will of
God. Rev. D. Holford, B. D ,

known as the "Big Swede" was silling
in a room of a public house in an oblivious condition; a well-known railroad
trainman, once well up in the service,
came in aud 'touched" tbe Swede for a

of. The man was arretted and is now in
jail; he will have his trial Saturday.
He is very anxious that bis name
should be suppressed, so a* uot to cause
his family "worry." lie is very considerate of his family indeed, as according
to reports tbey have for some lime been
suffering for the necessities of life and iu
a way dependent upon charitable people
for their meagre sustenance, while the
husband—wbo is so feorfnl tbey might
be worried over his arrest—lias been
blowing his money for whiskey nml

Charges Are Substantiated by Mrs. Richard
A London dispatch says that Mrs.
Richard Chamberlain, sister-in-law of
the secretary of state for lhe colonies,
who very recently returned from Soulh
Africa, has been interviewed regarding
her experiences there. She declared tbat

low class of men. Those In South Africa neglected their parents. Six cases of
drunkenness among army doctors came
under my observation. After these people had came in contact with the police
they were sent home in charge of invalid-*."

Xow, iLcie lived in tkc parish ol
tiuutli Tautan, in the curious old village of Zeal, where every house is an
urclioeolog'ieul curiosity, nnd every
householder is iudepeudenl -u iioor
yotuia muu of the utuneof Joaluli Hay.
eoutmouly known a*s young Italny Hay.
The ulckruinie wus aequlretl by him
through bis ext-esslv-e eautloii. As the
-slothful num. according to Solomon,
excuses himself from doing anything
cud going anywhere, by Biiyliig: "Thore

Joe was imt a lazy man, yel bis ex*
aggeratotl prudenco led to much the
sniuu results us Inerlness- he let slip
upportunitilea that could never recur,
und which went to bencllt men less
able, honest und industrious tlmn himself.
It sometimes happens Unit plums
drop inlo ibe* months of t.lio-se who
stand gaping ut the clouds. All they
(hen have to du is to close their mouths
on the plums and to moke Uu- most of
Sueli il plum dropped into ibe mouth
ol Josltth one Cbrlstm-OB Bve. IK* did,
llideed, suup his jaws on ii but that
was all.
He  was working on the common,
u- blocks, wherewith
   iew lake" wall.    It is
ike opinion 01' every householder iti 11
I-an nli that, hns commons thut be has
a righl io tis much open ground us lm
etui Inclose subject, if enforced, to a
payment to the lord of the manor, and
thence forth his own in perpetuity,
Whilst thus engaged doe came on tt
"burrow" or cairn of small stones. Ik-
cliureii   away   theso us  too sintill    tu

and dUcovered be*
in-utJi them a granite slab. Thla he
levered aside. wlUioul mueJi dlfltenlty,
innl lo his .surprise disco veral n stoiw
eihl or collin 1 onstrtioted of t-mU* blocks,
lb- crept in, und wus slJIl further surprised whon he found within 11 potcon-
Ln-Ining charred boines twnl ashes, and
near it a cup of yellow metal, and some
lings und hoops, some weighing six,
others ten and llft-roii ouaees apiece.
He hasllly serainliled forth, :iiiil us
tin* sotting sun gleamed out, h-uexamined his bud by il« light. He rubbed
tlie clip uml the rintfs 011 his sleeve, ami
"liy ginger!" suid he, "if it ain't nil
solid gold. Come! I'm in luck's wny.
This shall stand over against a rulny
"I wasn't called, young Italny l>n.v
for nolliing," suid be. "I'll put it ull
lwu*k again where I found it,-Olid there
it shall remain till 1 have real occasion
to lift it."
So tbe young mun replaced the covering block, then lieaped the smull
stones und earth over i-t und disguised
the fuel, tbut tlu* place Jiad been dls-
lie returned homo very Biitlsilcd with
himself and with bis prospects. Now
he could look forwurd withoutbllnltlng
io ilu- Inevitable rainy duy. At prcn-
ciiit he hud. health, strength and youth,
and with these, he could earn bis livelihood, "llut," as Jos put It, "I can't
reckon on these lnstlng. 1 knows several young chaps ua bus hud colds settled im their ohestcsscs, und bave died
of a decline. Ami Tom Kiidieott, Iw

eropilude there's no denying lt, every
day und hour uml minute brings 1110
alghor to it."
Accordingly, .los went on breaking
up stone onul Inclosing, tu.d instinctively he extended his "new take" wall In
the dlre-ution of the cairn und stom*
clie.st that contained bis treasure.
On ihe vorgaof the m(n>r, on the con-
lines of cul 1 ure, Lived aglrl naniod Mary
Aggett, villi her bedridden mother.
She mude il livelihood 011I of plovers'
eggs, whioh she collected uml sold, out
of some poultry she kept, oil! of Hint
arrow beads, willed, liy searching, she
found on the moor, und whldishe disposed of 10 nu arehtte-ologUt.  Bhe also

One duy when lhey me),on tlw* moor

they retired together under sheller of
a rock io eat logelher iheir lunch or

weather waa, Jos putlilsarm round Polly, ami. having an overcoat, be throw

The ensuing nlghl wuh one of sore
temptation to Jos.   lie tossed ou bis
bed, lie eould not sleep. Ile sullied
very early from his house and went to
the moor, resolved to raise bis treasure,
dispose of It, dare fortune and imirrv.
As he passed the eottagu nf Mary Aggett he did not see lier. He wus gliul of
this, lest she should have naked him

earlier thnn Usual.

When ull were ranged before bim, he
shook bis bead. "It would be madness
to risk it," said be.   "If I morrii d Polly,
men be them corkscrews, she'd have
the whole story out of me, nud tbey be
thai chiiUerlioxes, lbey can't help talking, and she'd blub about it to every one

Then In wenl ull the treasure again
into tbe eotlin tbnt hud contained and
preserved it for ■i.QOi) years.
"1 know whut I'll do." suld Jos. "I'll
build my new-take wall right over this

I.'utle did Jos Buap-iet thut he was
being watched, and thut hts every wurd
was overheard by Tolly herself, who
was behind the rock bind by, whero she
Imd picked up flint chips and (lakes.
Slowly, painfully, Jos Day worked ut

over Ibe cairn, und thus lu* secured his

was  it   made   fast *4,niinst Ihe   rainy
In the eoiiTse of the next three months
he had completed the Inclosure, and
hud taken from ihe common a tract of
gootl land of ftvo-and-twenty acres In
About this time Mury Aggett's mother
died. Jos pitied ber greutly. the cottage
was st> lonely for the girl. Ills heart
grew soft when be saw her In bluck.
"liless me!" suid he. **U 1 lived In thut
cottage it would save me half of my
journey every duy. but I won't risk it."
Shortly after this 11 great surprise
eame to llim. One morning he found in
bis "new take" a Hock of sheep all
branded M. A.
-•(Inwioiis bless ins!" exclaimed Jos.
"How ever eame tbe sheep there'? I'll
tun usk Polly, she may know. She must
hu* seen some one drive 'em Ibis way."
lie went to the cottage ami siwke in
heat; "Mary, some owdoclous radicals
have been turning sheep into my new
take during tbe night. They are
marked M. A."
"They are mine, Jos."     *.   .
"Yours, Polly?"
"Yes. lt was very kind and considerate t>r you, Jos, to Ineloso so muny
acres for me. I thank you with all my
"Inclose for you! It Is my new
"There is some misunderstanding,"
answered the girl. "The new take Is
certainly mine. I havo l>een to the
lord of llie manor and have iKinght it—
•,•3 acres ut so much gold per ucre. I
have the pa[»ers ail drawn out."
"Yours! Where did you get the
money ?"
That wus a question Mary did not un-
After luiicb eoiifcideratiou Jus said,
fultt-riugly: "Tbis is a pretty go! How
nm I to be paid for the witlllng?"
"I'm sure 1 can't think, Jos."
"Hut it- bas engaged me off andon for
is months. Fifty |>ounds wouldn't ro*
pay my labor.   I en n't afford—"
"I really am sorry for you,"
"There is only one way out of it," ex-
clalined Jos, "that 1 can see; and that
is by changing the brand on the sheep
from A to I), nml by lumping together
my wall ami your land."
"Well, I'm not particular," answered
Mury, and so the. matter was settled.
They were married, and Jos fouud
that he had secured not only a very capital bit of land, but with it a very
thrifty, witty and wise wife.
At the close of the first twelvemonth
there were three in the house in the
place of two. At the end of the second
yenr the number luul mounted to live,
for the second addition lo the family
consisted in twins.
But the conscience of Jos wus un-
ciiisy. Something stood betweenhimand
Polly. He hnd a secret from her, und
that is ever a barrier to connubial unity.
Christmas was approaching. Jus resolved to make u clean breast of it und
tell Mary everything,
Christmas day arrived nud Joe put on
his Sunday coat uml (lowered his "w*es-
kit," took his lever and went forth.
"Polly," wild be, "come along.   I've   a
BiirprlMj for you," He deliberately threw
tlown 11 portion of bis new-take wuii,
discovered lhe lid of the stone chest,
ti vrred it aside, ami then jumped into
the box. Next moment he -rose out of
it blank witli despair, trembling with
disappointment. His trrus-ure was
Ity the side of Ibe ealrn und overthrown wtill stood his wife watching
him, with a smile on her cherry lips and
a twinkle in tier bright eyes. A toddling
child clung to her RklrtS ns she held one
of ilw twins in each arm.
"Poll!" he gasped, "I'm a ruined man.
I've lost everything,   I've 1s*eu robbed."
Then she laughed and when she
laughed tin* child bedding tier skirt
lailglicd also and the babes in her arms
eh nek led ami crowed.
"No. Jon JUtiliy Hay," she Mud, "you
have lost nothing, you have gained

IMtsed of ii to the antiquarian gcnUe-
miui who buys lhe arrow heads. With
Un* money I bought tbo liintl, the sheep,
the cows—and you."
Then Jos scrambled outof the grave,
and fell u laughing, and hi* laughed till
the tears run down his cheeks.
"Ity ginger!" said he; "woman's wit
outweighs man's wisdom. My true
treasure-trove is here"- he t-kupped his
wife on the shoulder—"nnd it's one

Everybody should bear in iniiul that
the moal essential point in attaining a
well-dressed itppcnrance is to study consistency ami becomkngucss, na well aa
tho latest modes In out nnd fabrics.
Tin* gown for the morning may bt* of
the most oxpcuslvc material, yet if it
In* of fabrics designed forevonlngwenr,
nnd mode after the style of a street or
reception costume, both time and
money havo been thrown away in the
effort tu make something suitable to
the time.
The morning house gown, and especially thut of thin, airy, flowing1 materials, has an irresistible fascination
ior lhe esthetic woman. If she is a success in this neglige dress, she pretty
well understands the art of selecting,
in color and style, llie-gown tliat best
haruioni/os with her surroundings nnd
her own Individuality, and Bhe wear:;
it with the air of never having considered the effect nl all.
The morning gown affected by the
women of to-day is less the wrapper ami
more tha dainty Arena, in which ono
enn appear with nil propriety outside
the door of hor own boudoir. In it she
is appropriately gowned; ami while it
h uut BtilTened with bones, Btnya nnd
tnterllnlngs, the contour of thc figure
is not entirely hidden, as iu the days
when the Mother-llublmrd wrapper
went swirling in uneven fullness and
slovenly fold about her feet and waist,
.Not that we wholly condemn this comfortable lounglng-gown, which, when
lined In that enpaeity, is a comfort-
giving garment; hut let its use be confined to the lounging*.00m, and not at
the breakfast tatble or for the reception
of morning cullers. The woman who Is
carefully and becomingly gowned In
the early morning not only adds greatly to her appearance, from thc point of
good dressing, but takes on a more
youthful appearance, ami the effect sho
hns upon those around her is by fur
more pleasing than If she hus the look
of having hud just time euough to throw
on a wrapper und reach the morning-
room to situteh a bite with the rest of
the household.
At no time is the morning house gown
more appreciated than In warm weather, when even the most comfortable of
outdoor garments seems unbearable.
Its very daintiness nmlies one cool, and
when the thinnest materials ure used
with the laciest of trimmings, the delight of the wearer is only equaled by
the pleasing effect the tout ensemble
has upon others, ln autumn ami winter months the house gown, while quite
Qf) dainty, takes on a more substantial
and close-flttlng air, suggesting warmth
and Qozlness, Richer nnd warmer colors nre generally used, though many
women cling to the dainty, delicate
tints and pure white all the year round.
