The Rails Will Follow the Grade On
the Branch.
All   thc Contractors  Will Be  At
Work  By thc End  of thc
Present  Week.
There was considerable excitement In
town the latter pari of last week when it
waa known thnt orders bad been issued
to stop the work of grading on the North
Star brancb north of St. Marys river.
Various: rumors were afl -at and one man
front Fort Steele said at once thnt it
meant Hhe company Intended to build
down the St. Marys to Fort Steele, and
he went home rejoicing. Others said
that changes were contemplated to make
a more suitable route for building the
road on through to Windeimere. But
the truth of the whole matter is that a
delay was ordered from headquarters hi
the east ou representa! Ions ft om tlie Sullivan Mining company, 'but tbe line
could J'ip built by way of Marysville, ua
Mark cteek, just as well as hy missing
the ^townsite a mile and a half or two
miles. This mutter has been pending
aud investigations made, hut the probabilities are that no change from ihe p'ts-
ent .'location wi'l he made un'es-j it be
the building ol a spur into Maryville.
The line could not be built to Kimberley
that whj', except by greatly increasing
lhe grade.        	
Pushing Forward the Oracle.
Grant & Shady, who have the contract for the next four miles beyond St.
Marys river, commenced wotk yesleidny
and the other contractors will be at wrjrk
by the lalier part of the week. It is the
intention of Ihe com any to push the
whole work us rapidly as t-ossililo, so
that everything will he in good shape before heavy frost. Wilh this idea in
view, track laying will probably commence next week, and ball hs ting and
surfacing will follow closely after, so
that when the last mile of the road is
graded, the '-.rack will be laid and the
roadbed be ready for traffic at once.
Cranbrook People Should Patronize Cran*
brook Merchants.
During the past few weeks there have
been peddlers of different kinds in the
town, selling their goods lo the gullible
public. Among them was a man selling
musical instruments, another glasses, a
third clothingi  a fourth photographic
views of homes, etc. They all did some
business, and in each case lhe purchaser
could have done as well or better if he
bad bought of Cranbrook merchants.
The spectacles were --old much higher
than Tate, lhe jeweler, would hnve sold
litem, better bargains could have been
secured of l.eusk, the tailor, in tailor
made clothing, and as to custom made
clothing, Magi's & Hughes, Hill, (he
Clothier, Reid & Co , Sherlock & Bremner, Gilpin, or the London & Liverpool
cotppany could havedaneaswell or better
by them. Beattie, the druggist, would
have sold the very same musical instruments several dollars cheaper, and Piest
& Co. would have given satisfaction in
work and service in photographic views.
And it is so nil along the line, The
Cranhrook merchant lives here; he haa
his money invested here; he spends his
money here; he assists in making Cranbrook a town, so that the people wbo
buy iu this way cau have positions to
earn money. Too many people have
come out west to receive belter wages,
nud llieu want to send back east lo make
their purchases, where low wages are
paid. Such a policy will make any town
a low wage town if it is kept np If you
want to have prosperity in a country
keep up your wages and your prices, on
a standard with the resources, so lhat
there Is money for both sides. Buy at
homo. Stay hy the merchants who are
staying by you. You will make money
hy it every t tne. It is business for both
Hides, and Cranbrook bas a class of mer
chants that carry large stocks nnd ore
selling on closer margins than any towu
in tbe Kootenays.
As  Shown by the Ureal Increase In lhe
Consumption ol Meat.
fertile Free Press: As an indication
of the growth of the Koolenays, lhe itl-
create during the last two years In tbe
amount of meat used is a good indica
tion. In conversation with Mr. Mclnnes, of Mclnnes & Co., a few dnys
ago, that gentleman informed us that
two yi his ago about seventy head of cattle per month was the amount of fresh
beef consumed in the Kootenays, while
today over twelve hundred head per
month were required to supply the de-
maud. The greater portion of these
cattle come from the Northwest Territories, and this great increase in demand
bas been a good thing for the farmers
and ranchers of the Northwest, as today
cattle buyers have to pay from $8 to $12
more per head for beeves than a year
ago, and considerably more than at any
time during the past fourteen years. At
tbe present rale of growth, in another
year the Kootenays will consume all thc
beef raised in the Northwest, unless Ihe
farmers and ranchers greatly increase
their herds.

Placer Ground Within a Few Miles
of Cranbrook—Mining Notes
of General Interest.
Tbe Black Rear.
Tbe Itluck Hear and Mahel mineral
claims one and one-half miles soulh of
Kimberley were bonded this week to
Charles Kstmere, of Kimberley. The
properties are galena propositions, assaying 54 ounces silver, 68 percent lead and
$4 in gold. The principal development
work Lbs been done on tbe lllack Hear.
The vein has been stripped by various
open cuts for a distance of ubout 300
feet, showing a continuous ore chute.
The vein is about six feet wide with two
feet of clean galena assaying as above
stated. A force of men is being put to
woik on the property to develops it
more systematically. Mr, Kstiueie feels
highly pleased iu being able to secure
this property. He said lo Herald reporter, "I have (Seemed a property iu
these claims that is auolher evidence ol
the imiueu.se wealth ubout Kimberley
uud the Kast Kootenay country. Like
the.fatuous North Slar and Sullivan
mines the pay ore begins practically at
the grass roots, Situated us these properties are ou the line of the North Star
branch railway, I am confident that tbe
first shipment of ore to leave Kimberley
camp over the branch will be made from
the lllaek Dear mine." Mr. Kit me re is
organizing a compauy for the purpose ol
acquiring these properliis and working
them. Iu the uteau lime he intends to
carry ou work continuously. Everyone
going lo Kimberley should visit this
property as it can he done without greut
physical exertion, Ihe workings of the
Black Itear being withiu 100 yards of tbe
wagon road, uud it sign on the road will
guide lhe visitor.
Mr. Kstmere is a hustler nud knows n
good thing wben he sees it. His labors
are continually directed toward bringing
the mineral resources of East Kootenay
before tbe eyes of capital and the public.
He is deserving of all tbe success with
which he may meet in his endeavors

company, limited.
St. Marys River.
Messrs. Matheson and Virdeti have decided to spend several months in the active development of tbeir mineral claims
on Dewar creek, oue of tbe tributaries of
tbe upper St. Marys river. They have
this week taken a supply of provisions,
etc., by pack horses up to their ground,
aud do uot expect to leave tbe work before winter sets in. They left soma fine
specimens with McVittie & Hutchison
and appear quite confident that they
have picked wiuners in tbe great prospectors' race. They have two large,
well defined ledges, one of them ten
feet wide, well mineralized with galena
ore and traceable for some distance;
tbe other ledge tuns from three to
twenty feet In width and is'heavily
charged with copper aud galena. The
country rock is a series of shales with
granite dykes ilsing about 7000 feet
above the valley of Lake Kootenay.
Ik-fore these claims could be reached
with pack horses a trail had to be cut
for six miles and Matheson aud Viiden
had to do this for themselves, besides
being obliged to construct a substantial
bridge across Dewar creek. Thus the
most enterprising prepare the way for
others for the trail and bridge will become a public highway and many n
lucky miner ride over tbem to riches.
Messrs. Taylor and St. Clair can*
down on Tuesday from (he tipper St.
Murys river where they have staked four
claims showing solid bodies of galena.
Tbey are the first to reap tbe benefits ol
the new trail which 'has been cut out by
Messrs. Matheson and Virdeti, and tbey
are loud iti|their praise of the way the
trail has been made. Mr. Taylor says
the country aroutig Dewar creek is a
very promising one, and destined Jlo be
a rich mining cump when transportation
is arranged for. Tbe ore so fur nssa>ed
goes over 100 otiuces to tbe ton in silver.
Moyie Mines.
Moyie Leader; Things are going
swimmingly along in the soulh end of
Moyie, and tbe way iu which that portion of the towu has built up in the last
thirty days is simply astonishing. It
is now to have tbe highest building in
the town. Tbis will be built by J. C.
Drewry on two lots which he recently-
purchased ou tbe extreme southern end
of Taviostock street. The building will
be 29 feet wide, 60 feet loug, and three
stories high. It will have 36 rooms, including a large kitchen, and will have
accommodations for at least 50 men.
Tbe building will be used exclusively as
a board and lodgiugnhouse for thc men
employed at the Lake Shore miue. Mr.
Drewry expects to have 50 men In bis
employ by the time tbe building is completed.
The new tunnel at tbe Lake Shore
mine is uow in between 80 and 90 feel.
Its face is in solid rock anil rapidly neai-
ing tbe main ore body. The ore car hns
been Installed and carpenters are at
work on the big trestle over which the
Harry Mathers, from Windermere
mining division, was in town this week
and reports great progress in thai
northern division of tht- district. Haupt,
Taylor and Mathers have bonded tbe
Silver Thread group to agents of Fraser
& Chalmers, of Chicago, for £50,000, of
which $3000 was paid down, aud the
buyers are now engaged in active development work. The property is on Saw
creek, which is one uf the richest creeks
In the Windermere district; iu fact the
basins of Saw and Horse Thief creeks
appear to have most ofthe j^ood things,
The Silver Thread shows a tjj-foot ledge
of galena carrying 14" to 250 ounces of
silver to llie ton. Many ot our readers
will be glad to hear lhat the well known
Jack Thompson has located a large
ledge traceable for iSou feet aud earning galena. The location is near lhe
well known Delplliue and promises to
be a very valuable find.
There can be no doubt ihat tbe Win-
dermtre district will he one of lhe rich
districts of the Koolenays, and it is not
difficult to Imagine the North Star rait-
way extended to that country, running
through and opening to lhe miner tbe
large Skookumcbuck district, and the
Fin lay creek nnd Dutch creek valleys in
alt of which good prospects have been
found and iu whieh there will doubtless
be mnny mining camps so th.it the cttl
zeus of Cranbrook will before 111 ny
years have passed, see a wealthy aud
populous country, large euough for a
province, paying tribute to the geographical position of their town.
Placer Mining.
In these days of rich finds iu t-uar:z
tedgesevery miner is looking for ••veins,"
' contacts?' "iron capping" and ' ttoat,"
while Ihe placer ground ol the district is-
negtected nud scorned. And yet. within
three miles of the district in one direction nud within six miles in auolher,
there is ground which was rich enough
in lhe "seventies" for men to work with
short sluices atul rockets, and the pick
and shovel. Surely there must be fti-
wages uow for work ou that same
ground, The cost of living iu those old
days was four or five limes what it is
now now, nnd there can be no doubt
that much ground would lie left un-
worked then which would now pay over
*f3 00 per day.

A good story is told on Frank Rankin1
About a year ago, while C. P. K. More-
keeper ot Warduer, some indiscreet
friend presented bim with a fawn. It
was only a few days old and Frank found
:t necessary to officiate tu the capacity
of wet nurse by using a bottle. Tbe
regulation nipple was a rarity in Warduer during those days, but Frank's ingenuity supplied a substitute in the way
ofn piece of small rubber hose. Fortified with this he would place one end in
a can of milk and the oilier in the
(awn's month. At first tbe animal did
not take kindly to this new deal, but
after a few trials be developed a voracious appelite. One day, proud of his
achievement, Frank invited a number of
friends down lo the storehouse lo see
his pet indulge in a condensed cream
banquet. Tbe hose was placed iu proper
position and the fawn, eager to display
bis ability, started a stream of milk
through the hose with unusual force.
While expatiating on the wonderful
smartness of bis pet, Frank loosened Irs
hold on the lower end of the tube, and
suddenly there was a gurgling aid
strangling on the part of the fawn tilst
was alarming. The rubber hose was
half way down its throat and rapidly
disappearing from sight. An attempt
was made to stop it, but it proved futile.
the result being the ruination of a new
pair of fio trousers, and for lhe first
time the animal was placed on a rubber
diet. That settled it, and tbe next day
Frank sent tbe fawn to a friend in Macleod.   He bad had enough.

The editor of The Herald had two
hills preseultd to him tbis Week thut
failed to give rise to a pleasant feeling.
Both bills were paid, but not without
protest. One was drawn up un a blank
bill head, and the o.her was on u bill
head printed by a house In eastern Canada. The Herald has a fully equipped
printing office, wilh machinery a"d material costing about for. O. It is ready
and willing to do lhe printing of this
town, but it does n.ot propose to compete with eastern offices that pay their
employes from ft _Q to $l 75 a day,
simoly because it cannot do it. The
Herald pays good wages, and that money
is spent right in the town. The editor
aud bis employes pn-chase what they
eat and wear in Cranbiook. Tbey don't
send east for anything to save a few
cents. The Herald stands for Craubrook in fact as well as in theory, and it
is pleased to state that the people cf
Craubrook stand for The Herald, with
now aud then a lonely exception,   The
Herald is opposed to individuals sending
away for supplies that can be purchased
in Cranhrook, on general principals; and
it is also opposed lo people sending away
fur their printing, for the reason that
Cranbrook printing should be done iu

The Spokane exposition management,
witb characteristic liberality, have enlarged their plans for Ibis year, and will
«ive lhe best exposition ever given in
the northwest. Yet they still adhere to
a narrow policy in their treatment of
newspapers, hy sending out passes
to editors marked "not transferable.*'
If the weekly newspapers acted as narrow minded in return, they would ignore
the exposition, lint fortuualely newspapers of tbis day are built OU broader
ideas. The Spokane exposition should
take a tumble. The "not transferable"
clause to a pass given for "?2u to $50
worth of advertising is a custom so obsO'
lele that modem men and modern managers of public expositions have relegated it to the back ground long ago.

John Houston, of the Nelson Tribune,
failed to govern the Nelson delegates
to tbe convention of representatives of
the boards of trade in the Kootenays, re
ceutly held in Kossland, and in cause
quence he characterizes the convention
us a meeting of disappointed ollice holders. Prosperity has evidently given
Houston  Indigestion.
Il does not seem that anything is being done by the government toward providing a school for Cranbrook. The
number of children of school ago jn
Craubrook is double what it was last
winter and the fact that nothing bus
been done in the way of giving them a
school is a crying shame. What is tli
mutter down ut Victoria r It would
seem tbnt it wus nearly lime for llie politicians to quit lighting for tbe plums
und give some attention to the needs of
the province. Craubrook must have n
school and a petition should go out from
tbis town thai would awaken the dead.
Greenwood has just had another lire,

by Senator Mason's pure foud investigating committee vory unappetizing
Startling proof of the extent to which
food udnlternlioii is curried on is given
by wholesale, (inu day's Investigation
brought out the following facts:
"That a commodity for sale throughout the United States Ulld in popular
uso among dairymen uud milkmen for
tlie prnservationof milk and cream, and
by bakers for the preservution of cream
pull's, chocolate eclaires and similar
pastry, is a product of wood alcohol,
which is nbsnlntely poisonous; tbat this
preparation is used hy undertakers for
the preservation of dead bodies and bj
hen 1th authorities for the disinfection
of buildings where virulent diseases
have been treated.
"Thut ground turred rope has been
used to adulterate ginger.
"That absolutely pure Hour is a rare
commodity; that it is adulterated witb
ground stone and clay from Tennessee
and (icorgia.
"Tbut pure buckwheat floor is rarely
to be purchased after it passes through
the bands of a jobber or a wholesaler:
thut one barrel of pnre bnckwhent floor
is generally mixed with two baR'ela of
inferior spring wheat flour tbat can be
purchased for less than one-third tbe
price of tbe buckwheat.
"That nearly all powdered sugar Is
composed in great part of cornstarch.
"Thnt nearly all black pepper iB
adulterated with whut is known as
'buckwheat shorts' (hulls)
"That retail bntter dealers in the city
daily violate the oleomargarine law.
"That flavors sold at soda water
fountains as the juice of strawberries,
bananas and pineapples are chemical
"That pure vanilla extract for flavoring purposes is almost unknown, and
tbnt the flavorings for such extracts as
are sold in the market are in the main
derived from cumin; tbat lemon and
other flavoring extracts are also adulterated to a very great extent."
A. S. Mitchell, chemist of the Wisconsin dairy food commission, testified
that Ihe cream cf tartar ordinarily sold
by grocers consisted mainly of phosphate of lime and alum mixed with
starch. He went extensively into the
question of the adulteration of wheat
flour und buckwheat flonr. the nse of
cocohnnt shells and peanut shells in
food products, and confirmed the testimony with reference to the adulteration of coffee with "black jack"—-the
inferior bean shipped here from Germany nml Brazil. And at this point in
the testimony Senator Mason remarked,
"We'll Introduce a bill that will stop
the Germans from sending any more of
that stuff hore."
C Y Knight, secretary of the National uud Illinois Dairy nssociations,
prod need four packages purchased by
himself nnd snid to contain creamery
butter .A-a matter of fact he had been
supplied with oleomargarine, for which
be luul paid from 18 to 20 cents a pound.
The flrst pucknge had nowhere nbout It
any murk Indicating tbe nature of tbe
contents. Another package had the
word "oleomargarine" faintly stamped
OU brown paper on the inside. Each of
tho other packages was stamped In a
curlier of tho brown paper wrapper, so
turned down thnt no purchaser would
notice the stamp until after careful
search fot it.
J ,1. Berry, of the West Chicago
Fir tin U.'tiiiiiii* compauy, testified that
most of the jellies sold on the market
were fraudulent, boing made of tbe
cores und parings of apples, mixed witb
glucose and sugar and colored and flavored to suit Glncose, 60per cent; sugar. ID per cent, and npple juice, 40 per
cent, is iho trade recipe for jelly.—Chicago Letter
I'liuttiiiti I'nrnia Disappear.
On tho 10th of last month, at Nong-
han, near the town of Kumpbaraphi,
on tho Mekong, an island 0 sen wide
nnd l-l sen in length entirely disappeared There wero a number of large
trees, ten feet in circninferi-nce, on ths
island, and it was partly under cnltl-
vntlon The owner searched for it dnr-
Ing three or four days, bnt was unable
to llnd it or boat nny news of it. It
seems lhat in tho mouth of March there
nro always a number of islands floating
down Ihe Mekong. Tho owner of the
large one that has just disappeared has
teen many of them pass, aud says they
disappear in n few years The owners
aru continually in search of their property, which rather upsets one's notions
about tlio lixity of a landed estate.—

Cabmen la Caba.
"A cnhuiun who carried two officers
from TflCOU to Belnscodln streets
charged sit cents," says The Times of
Cuba "As there is an established rate
of fare, which ia 'Hi cents in the daytime und 80 cents after 11 o'clock at
night, tbe cabman thought he bad an

llut this morning he fonnd ont to the

the remarkable manner in which her boy,
Freddy, was cured
of one of the sever-
fatooY uirstud. fst »"d most tortur-
ing of skin diseases
by the use of Burdock Blood Bitters; and
not only relieved and cured for the time
being, but, mark you, after tight years
the disease has shown no sign of returning.
The following is Mrs. Keirstead's
letter :—
"With gratitude I can testify to the
wonderful curative powers of Burdock
Blood Bitters. Eight years ago our little
son, Freddy, was afflicted with salt rheum
and was in a dreadful condition. Hit legs,
from the soles of his feet to his body, were
entirely raw, and ran a bloody water,
which appeared to burn and itch until he
was often in great agony.
" After trying several remedies, we resolved to give B.B. B, a trial.
" You can imagine with what delight
and gratitude we saw our boy entirely
curedVfiet using ono bottle and part of
the second. We gave him the remainder
of the second bottle, und from that time
till the present he has never had a sign of
suit rheum or a sick day. You need not
wonder that I think there is no other
medicine can counl Burdock Blood Hitlers
lo purify tbe blood and build up the health
and strength."
They Reach
The Kidneys.
Mr. Conrad Beyer's opinion
No ono can he healthy with the kidneys
In u diseased or disordered Btate. The
poisonous Trie Acid which it is their
duty to filter out of tho hlood, is carried
Into the system and produces Hheurou-
tism, Headaches, Backaches and hundreds of ills and uiltueuts.
Any one who haa the slightest suspicion
that Wie kidneys aro not acting right
should tuke Dunn's Kidney Pills. They
ire the most effective kidney remedy
known, Mr. Conrad Beyer, at E. K.
Snyder's Shoe Store, Berlin, Ont., bears
this out when he snys:
"Anyone suffering with kidney troubles
CUinot do better than take DoOtt'B Kidney Pills, for they cured my wife who
hns been ndlieted with pain in the hm-k
iind other kidney troubles for a long
lime. They huve helped a great ninny
