Deor Herald:
I hove nol kept 11 diary since coming
ulionid ship, but I shall try lo give
>ou it short account ot our voyage to
As you know wl* left Halifax on .Saturday, March 17, hnvlng gone aboard
lhe evening before after n loug march
through thc streets of Halifax. Supper
and breakfast went o. k , mid the boys
enme up to Ilu* mark iu fine time, but it
war, 11 different tale at dinner time wben
old Neptune began to get in bis deadly
work, n_ nearly every olber place was
vacant, but tbey soou got over it. As
fnr myself I did uot miss a meal although I hnd to pay one visit to tbe iee
slile of tbe fcssel.
II in wonderful to see bow (juickly Ibe
boys bave become accustomed tu routine
of transport work, Tbe work is a grent
deal harder and more disagreeable than
most of them bargained for. The guards
go ou for 12 hour watches, and it takes
two companies to umunt guard. Uur
boys bad it for two nlghta in succession.
The guards bave to do all the stable
work, loo, iu addition lo Iheir regular
sentry go ; then there are numerous olher
fatigues tbat keep one going all the
time, I nm oue of the fortunate ones,
having been lucky enough to get on the
Burgeon's slaf, wbo is an old friend nnd
schoolmate of mine, and am consequcnt-
ly exempt from all paiadcs and fatigues.
The accommodations abroad this vessel are very limited and tbe men's living
quarters are veiy crowded and are getting dcucedly uncomfortable owing to
tbe beat now. The poor horses nre nol
faring very well, os we have lost on an
average of about six per day since we
sailed. Tbey seem to bave contracted a
kind nf pneumonia. Then tbis boat is
an awful roller. 1 think she rolled iu
Ibe stays before sbe was launched, and
Ibis continual motion keeps the poor
animals rubbing up against tbe front of
their stalls antl chafing tbtir shoulders,

Two of our men are on the sick list
witb a kind of feverish cold—Arnold, of

teiiipeintuiei are veiy high. Three
oilier men of our troop bave been trans-
feited to No. 1 company, A. squadron

the house of John VV. Peel of Winnipeg'
was taken ill at th Craabrook last Friday and on Saturday removed to St. Eugene hospital, aud later to bis home at
Winnipeg.    Mr.  Fahey has been a long

Lesson No. 2 in high-grade culinary
t will deal wilh the proper and most
Up-tO date method of fricasseelng an egg
First, lay your egg in a clean tin, or a
porcelain dish, which is better, as tbe
acids oozing after peeling are apt to corrode tn. tin and absorb large quantities
of tbat metal; people have beeu known
to acquire tin-plated stomachs iu thia
maunir, and from that fact arose the
vulgar saying of "rushing the growler"
when going for a drink if t—utterrailk.
Having laid your eggs in a porcelain
lish, proceed to peel tbem; having
peeled theru aa thinly as possible extract the seeds, for like grape and apple
seeds tbey wilt some times lodge in the
verified appendix—a troublesome insect
to tbe neat housekeeper.
Having peeled your eggs, extracted
tlte cores and seeds, beat tbem; don't
take a base-halt club or your fists; the
poker will do just as well and is more
convenient; it is also more effective as a
butter as many a woman knows many a
man has beeu beaten out of Ids cents by
the poker route; it will also beat tbe
scents out of an egg, if thoroughly administered.
Having bent your eggs thoroughly as
well as the grocer who let you have
them, don't get eggshuberaut because
you have thus far been successful, hut
proceed to boil tbem over a slow fire—a
coal or wood Are in small doses will answer just as well—until all extraneous
conglomerated compositions have been
atomized or minimized. When tbis has
been done your eggs will be ready to
serve decollete in individual soup-plates,
seasoned with celery, garrety or Rochelle
salts, as the taste and conditiou of the
system may demand.

Weil-Known Mining Expert Visits
the Weaver Creek
H. Iukster, M. ti,., a welt-known mining man of Rossland, waa In town a few
days thia week, and incidentally visited
Weaver creek district with J. S. Parker,
who is thoroughly acquainted with that
as well as many other But Kootenay
camps Hr. Iukster returned Tuesday
evening aud appeared to be very favorably impressed with that camp, but could
not express anything like a positive
opinion owing to having been unable to
make anything more tban a superficial
examination. He says the ledges are
mostly heavily capped with wash and
that all float pans free gold, and naturally originates somewhere In the vicinity. More than that he could not or
would not say.
Mr. Iukster will return toon and make
au extended trip through the St. Mary's
district, which, from what be has heard
of it, he thinks Is worthy of his attention, 	
A New Strike.
The Ellen, the property of "Tom"
Kennedy, formerly of Cranbrook, has
made a tine showing during assessment
work just completed by John Hamilton.
The Ellen is located on Palmer mountain,
la in the vicinity ofthe Belleville, owned
hy the Hamilton Brothers, and at the
surface shows about four inches of very ' cat—a cat evidently iu tbe pirlor afte
that region shortly. A charter has been
granted for a r-i way called tbe St.
Marys railway, and we believe tbe enterprise is backed by some of tbe greal
railway builders of the continent.
Mr. Johnson, the assayer, was lately
looking over the I'edro and pronounced
it a much more promising proposition
than he had expected to see. He believes that it is very likely to make a
The Kootenay St Algoma are letting
u contract for 31. feet more work in the
shaft to be com pit* lei I by thc first of
July on the property and it is probable
that tbe shipping ore taken oul will be
sacked and shipped as a test.
There Was ss Excltlag Time la the Cranbrook the Other Night.
Tommy Rookes has been feeling pretty
well much of the time since recovering
from the loss of his satin pants, and bad
smooth sailing right along until one
night last week. He was then telling
one of the latest uew stories in circulation among evangelists that trot in bis
class, when suddenly be cut short, held
up his finger aud said sh sh sb-sb to the
crowd, wbo immediately sh sh sh-ed ami
listened with bated breath to the sweet
warbling and twittering of a canary bird
in tbe up-stairs parlor.
After recovering from his surprise Tom
said: "Well, that's oue on me; I iho't
there was nothing human or inhuman or
otherwise ever got in or out of this
house without me knowing it; now, condemn me If some oue hasn't rushed a
canary bird right by without tue catching on. S-a-y; a 1-n t tbat sweet, boys?
It gives a fellow a kind of a homesick
feeling to bear a bird singing in the
house, don't hi Don't it warble sweetly?
Makes me think of the past, when I was
at home, young and innocent," and a
auspicious moisture arose like a fog-
bauk iu the northeast quarter section of
Tom's off eye.
The bird stopped singing, and Tom
sought to pick up the btoken thread of
his story, when there was heard the
fierce  caterwauling and  meowing of a
Six Feet of Solid Galena Ore Between Walls on
the Dean Property.
Julius Hurel brought down the news Tuesday afternoon that an enormous
strike had been made in the Dean on North Star hill.
The Dean and Mover belong to a syndicate organized by R. O. Jennings,
and are properties contiguous to the great North Star mine. A triangular fraction—
the Greenhorn—located by Al Jones, lies between the Dean, where the strike was
made, and the North Star.   This claim is now in litigation.
The ore body was encountered at a depth of about 60 feet through the iron
There is little doubt now that the North Star district will make one of the great
silver-lead camps of the world.
These great mines are 20 miles from Ganbrook and only reached by the
Cranbrook and North Star railroad, thus making this place the source of supplies and
E    distributing point for that great mineral district, and adding greatly to its present as
p    well as future prosperity, and also upbuilding the camp town, Kimberley.
Again, again, again, comes confirmations for the name, " Happy Gan-

They were highly pleased with what

in the way of increased payrolls as well

Finch & Joues, the welt-known lumber manufacturers, have commenced
work on a new two-story building, 24x26

Work on the townsite in tbe way of

popular gentleman, has undertaken tbe

gold aa well. Hope it will come to four

Work on tbe Mastodon with tbe diamond drill haa been discontinued owing
to a number of points having been
broken, and Ihe ball-bearinga- having
dually been lost in the seams of tbe
ledge, which haa been conaiderahly
broken. The probabilities are that tbe
work with the drill will not he resumed
at least for some months, and may not
be at all by the present contractor*. So
far as tbe Herald reporter learned no
material change in the character of the
ore had taken place in the 40 or 50 feet
penetrated, Thc ledge being about 100
feet wide, much depth and cross-cutting
wi uld be necessary to determine any
thing aa ta the value of tbe property.

In the porter's office, and securing a
broom went up those stairs two and
three at a time, prayerfully exclaiming,
'The Lord help that cat if it gets that
poor little bird!" and in tbe next breath
yelling s-k s-k sc-a-a-t!" Quiet reigned
supreme for a moment; it seems that
Tom found neither cat or bird, and he
wandered about looking for them in
every conceivable place, softly calling
"Kitty, kitty; come kitty, come and I'll
get you a big tin of milk; come, kitty;
c-o-o-o-rue kitty — blaukety bbmketj
blank the blankety blanked cat anyway,
where la Itl"
Tom gave up in despair and came dowu
to the office. " Don't see how that cat
got In and out again—couldn't see either
cat or bird; beata me—did it sneak dowu
while I waa up there?" " Meow! meow!
m-e-o-w-t wr-r r-a-a! f-i z z-t! f-i-z l t"
came a yowling and jowling ftom under
Tom's feet, and the bald spot on hts
head turned red, white and blue while
bis hair began to stand on end like tbe
quills on tbe back of tbe fretful porcupine. " Why, ita uuder the house," aud
he jumped up and down on the floor to
scare it out, only to be greeted hy catcalls from the wash-room, card-rooms,
and every other place from whence a
sound might emanate.
Tom can " tumble" as quick as any
one, and wben he tumbles it is with a
rush. This time It was a brick house
rase; he looked up and saw a quiet-ip-
pearlng man, tbe corners of whose
mouth were suspiciously twitching, aud
eyes snapping with suppressed merri
ment. Tbe man wearing these peculisr-
ities at that moment was J. F. Porter, a
"Knigbt of the Grip," and a ventrilo
quiat of no mean degree.
Now, wben you meet Tom, don't say
" scat!" or "canary bird" to bim, for if
you do he'll don that air of injured ln-
aoceuce tbat he always carries in his

Aa Astonished Traveling Man Who Was a
Recent Visitor.
About llie lime Cranbrook was first
platted as a townsile. and tie tore any
buildings hai been erected, ,*jr,ke" llul-
man, dropped in one day, and met Col.
The colonel was already enthusiastic
as to tbe new Cranbrook, Bbowed Mr.
Holnian tbe blue prints of the " future
great," and expatiated upon what whs
being and would be done to build up a
thriving town. Jake, in his capacity afl
a traveling salesman had run up against
many propositions of that kind, and
while he listened with tbe utmost respect
•0 the colonel, lie was at the same time
doing the "guffaw" act " up bis sleeve."
A lew daya ago Jake dropped into
town again on business for tbe lirst time
since he was on the bare iittle prairie
where Cranbrook now stands, ami be
was dumbfounded. He walkt-d around
town with a local acquaintance, and now
,nd then WOUld stop, lc;ok around, and
exclaim-*" Well, it beats anything I
ever saw."
Mr. llolman lias since departed, but it
is safe to say that Craubrook will have a
new advertiser thro igho it the land.

The opp< s tion candidate, J. R. Costigan, addressed the voters of Moyie
Monday night. An unprejudiced listener tells the Herald that he had a targe
audience, who were quite chilly at first
but before the end of the meeting weie
attentive and appreciative listeners, ac-
"le-Tyou tbalTt'iei) a'bfe-sed cording him much applause, and appai-

tuuk an Insignificant pari, to the discredit of her eeeentrie commander, a Frenchman named l.andais, in the light with the
Sorapls. The bit of Hag is of tbut carried during the light.
Another Interesting Haa represented io
that of L'lusnrgonto. This (lag wns captured by TriiMnn, who commanded the
Constollntlon in an engagement ou Feb.
!), 1700. It was the lirst opportunity that
had occurred since the close of the Revolution for an American naval vessel to
get alongside of an enemy, and the hopes
of the American officers imd men for a
spirited combat were realized, for the
French frigate, under Captain Barreault,
promptly replied to the Constellation's
tire, in thin contest n youug midshipman, Dnvhl Porter, performed Ida lirst
not of gallautry. He was in command of
the forotop of the Constellation ami, noting on his owu responsibility, prevented
the fall of the topmast and all its hamper. The victory achieved by Truxtuu
produced ureat joy iu America nnd established a faith in the navy whieh 1ms remained unshaken to (his day.
A bit of Ha*,* which is also memorable
Is that of Le Berceau, captured by the
Boston, under Captain Little* Tlw American ship wrought grent havoc on board
the French corvet, which had the reputation of boing one of the fastest ships
in the French murine,
A celebrated shred is that of tbe flag
of the Guerrlore, taken in lhe famous
light with the Constitution, under Hulk
This was the conteBt where each side
displayed the supreme art of seamanship
ami naval strategy, and Dacres, commander of the Gneruiere, suffered no loss
of professional fame by the defeat, so
signal wns his efficient handling of his
vessel. It was (be first serious conflict
in the war of 1ML\ The flag was taken
down by Lieutenant George Campbell
Head, who was iu command of the prize
crew nnd who, on finding tlie Guerrlore
was sinking, set Cue to the wreck.
The Km,*li*di ship Macedonian, which
was captured  by  Decatur in  October,
1812, is also represented in the collection.
The capture of the Macedonian added to
the glory of Decatur, who had carried the
ship into New York with another British vessel captured at the samo time. The
Ibi': of iho Frolic, cnpiured iu November,
1812, by the sloop Wasp, under Jacob
Jones, is also represented, ln the exhibit ave also two pieces of Bags of the
Reindeer nnd Avon, captured by the
Wasp, under Blakely. the former in July
nml the latter in September, is 11.
The Constitution in December, 1812,
BalnbrldgG having succeeded Hull, captured the Java, and the Rag of the latter
ship contributes a strip to the Force collodion. Thero is a piece of (lie flag of
the Peacock, captured in February, 1818,
by Lawrence on the Hornet. This wns
the flag which, nftor half an hour's ti*_ht-
tug, *-.*•■ as not only lowered, but rclu.isted,

M my ot fair experience iu life of today

the information of sueji it mny be us well
•_■. iy a me carpet is a woven fabric in
ivhlcb tlir place of yarn li t iken by nar-
row strips i.f rag sewed together. Any
..1*1 rags will do fnr the purpose, though,
in be sine, the material ought to be
BtroiiK enough to slnnd some struiu in the
process of ivcovlng nnd some hard wear
after it has boon woven.
A veteran weaver of inp* sits nt his

Hi- allusion to Iho hospitals and bomOS
is explained by the custom nf employing
old ami feeble women who ure past almost all other kinds of work to cut uud
sew together the strips of rugs for making these carpels.
These strips nro brought to the weaver
in lurgo bulls uud nre wound on the shuttles by means ot an ancient spinning
wheel. The carpets, once woven, make
warm, noiseless, economical iloor coverings in hospitals und such places.
(liven the bulls of nigs, all properly
sewed, the Weaver charges only about -{i)
cents a yard for making the carpet, and
it i:- a yard wide. The work is harder,
perhaps, thuu the weaving of threads,
however thick, but to juilge of tho craftsmen by this one Specimen lhey are a sturdy brotherhood.

The Vole* mt n Woman H«ar-fl Prom

Bishop Samuel Fallows of the Reformed Episcopal church, Chicago, told t
mnrvclous story of psychical phenomena
in which he asserts thnt a husband hoard
hts wife culling after sho hud been buried
nud thai on hastily reopening tin* grave
lie found her unconscious, but still ullvo.
The minister declined to give tlm real
names, using the name of Smith.
As Bishop Fallows told the story, sonic
years ago Mrs. ('buries Smith, the wife
of u young man living on the North Side,
was taken seriously ill uml died in a short
time. She wns imt embalmed tuid was
buried two or three days later in ltose
Hill cemetery.
She was buried in thc afternoon. Is
tho middle of the uight Mr. Smith was
awakened by some one calling his name,
lie hoard the mime two or three times,
''Charles, Charles," very distinctly. He
did imt associate the voice with auy one
ho know ami snid to himself that it was
u hallucination. Being a man of materialistic views, he attached no meaning to
the matter and soou foil into n troubled
sleep ngain.
Afler awhile he wns awakened by the
voice again, this time more insistent,
"Charles, Charles, Chariest"
Just ns day was breaking for the third
time be hoard the coll again, this time en-
trontlngly, tbo minister declares. This
time ho recognized thu voice very distinctly us thut of his wife. Moved by
some unexphiimihlc impulse, he sprung
up, scutched tho room thoroughly, found
no one and rushed in to where a friend
was asleep.
"Come", get up! We must go to Bose
Hill!" he cried.
His friend tried to dissuade bim. but to
no purpose. They harnessed a horso to a
light buggy, took spades und pickaxes
anil drove to the cemetery at breakneck
si>ccd. As quickly as possible they dug
down to the coffin nnd opened it. The
young wife was just turning over in tht
Although alive, she was unconscious.
Presumably she hnd been iu a stupor the
