Don't Forget
Her Citizens Make lew Demands lur
New Vear.
This Improvement Is Urged A     'e
All Others as Most Important.
The Athlectic Club openning
Tonight, Thursday, Feb. 6.
An enthusiastic meeting of citizens
was held last Sitiinluy evening at lhe
Cranbrook hotel reading room for the
purpose of conferring wllh Mr. JO C.
Smith, M, I- A , in reference to the
needs of this part of ttie distiict that
should receive the attention of the provincial parliament at the coining session.
Mr. M, Mclnness was rallt-tt tu lhe
chair and W, P. Gurd named ns secretary, Mr. Mclnnes then defined the
oh) ct of the meeting nml culled on Mr.
Ryan for an expression of opinion,
Mr. Rvini, in a clear and concise manner, set forth the needs of a cutoff road
to Perry creek and the construction of a
bridge over the St. Mary's ueur the
mouth of Ferry creek to give the people
of Marysville, Kimberley and the St.
Mary's valley a direct and much
shorter route to Cranbrook. lie said as
to the huildiug ol the cutoff from Crauhrook to Booth or Si* .Mile creek, there
was no question as to the feasibility of
its construction, not withstand ng the
opinion of officials who have seemed determined to oppose that particular piece
of work.
Mr. Simpson explained ihe desires of
the upper portion of the valley for improved roads to Crauhrook and lhe necessity of an extension of the road from
the road Irom the foot of St. Mary's
lake up the valley tu the forks and lhe
expenditure of the appropriation made
for building the road from Kimberley to
tbe Skukumchuck country.
Mr. Hutchison had gone over the cut
on" iuuie io Perry creek with Mr. Ryan
and heartily coincided with lhe views of
that gentleman as to the practicability
of its construction.
Dr. King spoke upon the need of road
improvement tbe Perry creek district,
the bridge across the St. Mary's ami the
shorter route north.
Mr. Miner said that he had offered to
take Mr. Killeen over the Terry creek
route bul that his offer had been refused
Mr. Gurd addressed himself to the
meeting on the subjects presented and
urged action lo bring about the necessary improvements.
Mr. Ryan brought up the question of
incorporation aud said that in his opinion what the people in towns lhe size ol
Cranbrook needed was a law thnt would
permit partial Incorporation so that a
municipality might be formed on an
economical basis that would embody the
pieslious of water, lire and sewerage ami
other features only that might be considered necessary,
Rev. Fortune said that he appreciated
tbe Importance of good roads to the
mining camps and outlying districts but
be would Urge some torni of incorporation thai would give lire  protection and
a strict enforcement ot the sanitary laws
of the province, A lire in the business
pot lion ol the city would prove a disastrous blow aud the health ol lhe com*
inuuiiy should nut be jeopardised by
careless people who gave no thought to
Unitary conditio ns,
Mr. Smith then replied Hating that he
thanked ilu- people ol Cranbrook for
tbelr manifest interest  in tin- welfare of
tbe community nnd the district and
would promise lo do all in his power
to bring about the Improvements asked
for, especially as the people of Cran-
brook seemed exceedingly nodes in their
demands. He said, however, that tin
only hope he had   was  lhe overthrow of
the government, Referring then to another subject he explained the unfortunate conditions following the discontinuance ofthe mail route from Port Steele
to Windermere, since it lefl the territory
in.rib of Port Steele without illreci communication with Ihe government officers
or with Cranbrook, the banking center
of lhu district, and asked the co-opera-
tion of Cranbrook in having the route
The question wns freely discussed nnd
the consensus of opinion seemed to be
heartily in favor of re-establishing the
route just the snme as before, without
the two stage trips a week between Port
Steele an Cranbrook, as that was not
deemed necessary in view ol the fact
that there is a daily mail now hetwetr.
the two tiwns.
After arranging to hold a meeting on
next Wednesday evening at the same
place for the purpose of talking over lhe
q lestiun of incorporation, aud tendering
Mr. Smith a vote ol thanks for bis kindness, the meeting adjourned.

(i. It. Gilpin Returns Home From Uld
W.  T. Reid Back From An Extended Trip to Eastern
G, II. Gilpin returned Sunday from a
visit to Ins old home nt Leeds, ling,
lie said lit- had a very pleasant trip and
while there thoroughly enjoyed himself,
wns surprised with the great number
of old people 1 saw there, nnd they all
seemed intent on rounding out their
lives in the most rnmfortnble manner.
Von know in lhe old country people live
differently than they do in Canada ur
the Slates. The chief aim Is to secure a
competency by ihe lime ihey reach fifty
years of age nnd then they retire and
tart in to enjoy life, They have their
income carefully figured, and likewise
their expenses. So much goes for living, so much to the church, so much to
charily, and so on. Tbe only thing that
worries them is the hank that holds their
money and as the bunks in England are
pretly safe institutions ihey don't have
lo lose much sleep on that score.
1'Leeds is a grent manufacturing center nnd hits increased wonderfully ill population the past ten years, and rents
have Increased 2$ per cent, yet the people, that is lhe masses, ure belter off
now thiiti they were ten yenrs ago,
Wages have increased from len to twenty
per cent aud   the cost  of living has 1 le -
'One thing 1 noticed wasthe tendency
to drink among the laboring class of
women. You could see I hem iu the hotels as thick ns the men, and sometimes
the females outnumbered the males."
"Would you care to return to England
to live'"
"No, I wmitil prefer to stay in this
country. Of course there are many attractive features there, yet for the man
to make money it is not the best place
for a stranger, end if you have money
the rate of interest is too low to he any
"1 came back by the way of New York
ami took dinner at the Murray Hill hotel the day before J. Roderick Robertson
was killed there hy the tunnel explosion.
On lhat Sunday I rode up Fifth avenue
and saw the crowds leaving the churches, I never saw so many richly dressed
women in my life. 1 could not help but
he impressed with one thing, however,
while looking nt the wealthy element
as tbey passed from the churches to
their carriages, the women looked the
height of dressmakers' nud milliners'
art tint the men looked worn nud fagged
out, as if the pace of their lives was killing them.
"Yes, I made extensive purchases in
the old couuly in the way of dry goods,
carpets and crockery. It is a wonderful
market, and there is n great difference
in lhe cost of goods purchased there and
on this side of the water."
W. T. Reid Returns.
W. T. Reld returned from a month's
visit to the eastern markets Inst Sunday
morning. He said thnt the had worked
hard nil the time, yet he looked as if the
trip had done him good. Speaking of
the feeling about British Columbia in
the east he said that the War Eagle drop
had done a great deal to hurt legitimate
mining Investments in this province, especially so in Montreal and Toronto.
"There is money seeking investment in
the west aud as soon as the people of
the east discriminate between stock
gambling ami legitimate mining confidence in llritish Columbia resources will
lie greatly Increased. They nre watching
British Columbia Hml il the government
here will give authentic information on
mining al more frequent intervnls the
effect will prove more beneficial,
'I found n good market iu the east
nul Jiiivi- laid in a better and larger
slock of Rummer goods than I have ever
bought before. I am glad to get back
to Cranbrook and tbe west. It seems
like home again."
Teaching the Standard Rules.
"Saulty" McKenzie aud Han Murphy
returned from Winnipeg Sunday where
they went to get pointers on the slant-
nni rules and regulations which the
Crow has just adopted. They have now
opened a school of instruction for the
benefit of the other trainmen on the
road. Mr. Murphy hasall the engineers,
firemen, conductors and hrnkemen from
Cranbrook to Kootenay Landing and
Mr. McKenzle has (he line eoat*of Cranbrook lo Medicine Hat, and all the
station agenta on the Crow. It is estimated that their hcIiooIh will Inst about
two months.
Mr. A. T. Clark,  of Moyie,   Vindicates  the
License Commissioners.
The  Herald  has been endeavoring to
prove   lo   tbe public  that  the   rumors
against the integrity of lhe license board
and other officials connected with the
granting of licenses  in ibis district were
vile slanderers.    It has maintained from
the  first,  that  ns honorable  men, they
otilil not be   party  lo anything thai
ivored of  wiong doing.   The   Herald
Ims  maintained  that  these gentlemen
ere appointed lo honorable positions by
the government that bad fai lh in tbelr
integrity ami honesty. It has stood in
the breach and reiterated (tine and again
that men like Grace, Stork, Clark end
Barnes were above petty larceny ;Rthal
they were men of honor, and would not
sloop to accept gills or bribes, no matter
how large or how small, from applicants
for licenses. The Herald 1.1 pleased to
its position being vindicated, Mr
Stork and Mr. Clark hnve both declined
themselves, and in terms not to be misunderstood. The Herald has faith in
humanity and official Integrity. If there
is any man who can come out ami make
a charge against these gentlemen, let
him do it. If not, let this clamor and
underhanded villitication cease. It is '
wrong in spirit, unfair in mankind and
an'injustice to officials who have been
gov.'invd entirely and alone by their,
oiiscience ami seuse of duly and justice
in the performance of theii official acts.
Mr. Clark, one of the officials, writes
as follows 10 The Herald.
Moyie. B, C, Jan. ji, 1903
Editor The Herald—My attention has
been called to an article iu your issue of
January 33 concerning the license com-
iiilsluiii-i'-, ..I which body I am a member, nml as such desire vindication from
any charge of corruption or maladministration.
Such charges ure common to every
olliclal position 11ml are loo often slatted
by evil minded persons whose interests
unfortunately for themselves, have not
■olncided with tbe official decisions and
are, theiefore, usually unworthy of notice- Your article, however, iuuicnles
rumors, so extensive, of charges nnd insinuations o| such corruption as lo demand un Indignant personal denial, ami
this I desire to give Injuo uncertain mail-
ner. I wish lo state once for all, that I
have nol been a party to any corruption
whatsoever directly or indirectly. Thnt
I have not received one cent in money
or killd for either granting or refusing
any application, and that I am absolutely ignorant of any money having
been paid lo or taken by any commissioner (other than the legal fees) and
further that I do not believe such has
been paid to or taken by a commissioner.
Now, sir, if a denial can be more explicit and absolute than this I desire to
make it. You say that "rumors are
floating over the district" and you know,
sir, that "Rumor" has neither body to
be kicked nor soul to be damned. It is
a despicable and cowardly form of at
lack. If anyone can make any definite
charge against the commissioners, collectively or individually, let him come
out like a man ami expose the evil doer
in lhe name of honesty, for thelo/eof
fair play, and in common justice, I appeal to alt. Enough of base insinuation
and groundless rumors. Let us now
have facts, accusations, specific charges
if they can he made, and if not, then the
silence which is golden.
For the benefit of future applicants I
may state that the only cost of obtaining a license is the license fee—regu
luted by scale in the Liquor Act—and if
applied for at a special meeting the cost
of calling the commissioners together
and advertising (this amount being divided among the applicants at such
meeting). It is not necessary to make
any application through a particular solicitor, or through a solicitor at all. In
most casei it is probably advisable
for applicants to employ a solicitor to
insure the application being in proper
form, and in this the applicant must use
his own judgment, choose his own solicitor and pay his Uhe solicitor's) fee, s
matter of which the commissioners have
no concern or knowledge.
In conclusion, sir, let me say that the
commissioners maj have made mistakes,
may perhaps hive acted unwNely, hut I
lielieve we have, as a body, and I kuow
lhat I hu-'i- personally acted through nt
conscientiously nnd done whnt I believed lo he right and just.
Allow me also to express my thanks
for the honorab'e and manly position
taken by you upon matter.
I am sir, yours, etc.,

Too Culii For Them,
A. McKenzle and D. Murphy returned
Sunday from Winnipeg, where they went
to receive instructions on standard rules
as representatives of the conductors and
engineers of this division. Speaking of
their trip Mr. Murphy snid; 'We were
mighty glad to get back to the banana
belt of East Kootenay, Talk about cold
weather! While we were in Winnipeg
it was 40 degrees below zero with the
wind blowing 100 miles nn hour down
grade. 'Saulty' and I started, out one
evening to visit with some friends.
'Saulty' wore his 'Christy' and before
we had gone Iwo blocks he said, 'Let us
get back to lhe hotel before we freeze to
death.' No, British Columbia winters
nre nil tight, but 1 don't want any Man-
1 iloba in mine."
ll Was Discovered ')■ Weaver Creek last
The placer grounds of Weaver creek
have beer, worked indifferently for many
years. During lhe past winter however,
a party beaded by Tom Roberts baa
been doing systematic work on tbe
ground. At a cleanup last week a nugget weighing over three ounces and estimated lo be worth ahout 150 was
found. It is a beautiful piece ot gold,
cone shape, nnd makes an attractive ornament to show to the people. The
finding of this nugget has aroused great
interest in Weaver, and it will in s'l
probability be thoroughly worked the
coming season.
Smothered to Death.
On January 28, Oaltano Saporito, an
Italian employed by Twohey Brothers,
at a camp on the new rond 24 miles below Elko, wns cnught in n gravel cut

the bank about 13 feet and lhe Dalian
had gone in to set lhe dynamite charge,
when the roof caved and he was buried
beneath lhe falling earth Deputy Cor-
oner Moffat was called to Klko, and after
nn investigation of lhe circumstances decided tbat an Inquest was unnecessary
as no blame was attached to any one.
The remains were brought lo Cranbrook
in charge of Undertaker Campbell nnd
tbe funeral was held at the Catholic
church Saturday and interment took
place in lhe Cranbiook cemetery. The
deceased leaves a wife and three children In Italy,

St. Eugene May Resume.
Charles Parrel of the Society Girl st
Moyie, was in town Monday. Speaking
of mining in general throughout the dislrict he snld that South liist Kootenay
would have to wait until the tide took a
turn, as it was the history ol every district to have its slow times. "It is rumored," ssid Mr. Farrell, "thst the St.
Eugene would reiiime, as it had secured
a two years' contract for its output. I
know nothing as to the facts, hut hope
that it may be true."

J    A Story Illustrating an In.
gonlouB Plan For Keeping a Servant.
By Charlotte W. Eastmans.
It was n charming little sitting room
In which Mrs. Muson silt sewing dainty stitches, Before her stood the servant girl, who, with a stolid stare, announced that she had found a place
down town.
"But, Mary, you surely would not
leave mo without help," Mrs. Mason j
"1 got a place where I get free dot* j
"I would give you $;s, but you agreed
to work for me for $2.50 If 1 would
teach you to talk and do the work."
"I got anoder place down town,   1 '
say 1 go next week."
Entreaty and persuasion were alikt
In vain, It all ended with, "I go next
One year from this time Mrs. Mason
was a wiser If not a better woman,
and when Lena announced, "I got windier place down town," she merely
answered, "Very well," for this was
the third girl that she had trained for
the woman down town.
When Mr. Mason came home to dinner that night, he saw nt once that
some shadow had clouded the domestic
heaven, but when his wife had poured
out her tale of woe she proceeded to
lay before lilm plans for her future
campaign. When he had fully caught
lief id en, he laughed long and loud.
"You're n mighty smart llttlo wo-
uuni, Maria, hut if you try that game
you'll fall down," he announced when
she asked for his opinion of her plans.
"I'll not tall down any harder tbnn I
have In my other plans, and I believe
1 can do It"
"All right, I'll hack you," he promised encouragingly.
Assured of her husband's co-operation, Mrs. Mason very willingly agreed
t* take Lena's couslu, Christina, who
had just arrived from the fatherland.
In tho week which Intervened In-torn,
the advent of the new domestic one
might hnvo supposed Mrs. Mason to he
a blue stocking of the deepest dye,
for she carried a pencil stuck In her
hair and stopped to jot down burning
thoughts ou whatever was most convenient to rest her notebook upon. The
baby's buck or the bottom of tbo dish-
pan were alike available. When the
new Christina appeared, fresh and
rosy and clean, she started at her task
with vigor. Her former experience
taught her tho best method of Instruction, and, taking up one article after
another, she told tho names distinctly
and encouraged Christina to repeat It
until she was sure of It
The tlrst performance In tbe domestic act was to fry potatoes for luncheon.
"This, Christina," said Mrs. Mason
as she held up the spider, "is a kettle,
and these are eggs," pointing to tha
After this the bread and the meat
the crackers and the raisins, the coffee
and the lemons, changed places, and
r.n of the commonest utensils In the
kitchen nnd the dining room were in a
confusion thnt had no order except In
the fertllo brain of Mrs. Mason. But
she had her list welt memorized, and
her mistakes were few. Air. Mason,
gave her enthusiastic support und,
though he fen red to give nn order to*
Christina without tlrst consulting hi*
wife and his appealing look at tho table when he held up the cracker Jar
to Christina and asked for more raisins.
was very amusing, he gave his wife unstinted admiration for the glib manner
In which she could order a six pound
bread, fried rare, or a small piece of
roust beef for the water pitcher.
Unsuspecting Chrlsllnn worked hurt!
st her part of the game, evidently desirous of tilting herself iib soon as possible for the "free dollar place" down
town. She Jabbered In her native
tongue gladly with her friends, and her
English, that chauce might call into
use, never Intruded on the ground with
which Mrs. Mason had tampered. The
excitement of her experiment added
quite a little Interest to the usually
monotonous work of training a green
girl, and Mrs. Mason taught her many
mysteries in salads and soups that she
bnd heretofore kept ns strictly private
knowledge. Christina liml readied thut.
Binge In her development when Mrs.
Miismi could give an order for dinner
nnd go out for nn afternoon with some*
assurance that a palatable, well served
dinner would await her return. She
knew that the time was neur at hand
for the Inevitable announcement, and
so when Christina said, a little more
shyly than some of the former girls,
"My cousin, she got mo place where 1
see her every day; tho woman, she
sny she glad to get girl what yon
nmtioj she liuve your girl anoder time,"
Mrs, Mason answered cheerily:
"All right, Christina, you cnn go
right along. I'll get along without a
girl Tor awhile, hut Mr. Mason Is going
to bring company home tonight, and 1
want a very nice dinner."
Chi'lailuu smiled tt to   willing  au
acquiescence to tier plans and asked,
"What I get for dinner?"
"We'll hnve some ot that nice oatmeal cream, a cabbage   fried   calto,
some souped egg*-, n thicken omelet,
and you may get some of the best oyster cookies fiom the pickle. Mnke
some coffee soup. Christina, und mako
the freeier full,   l think we'll have
soda pie with It."
"All right. 1 do It." answered Chris-
dun willingly. Ami Mis. Mason smiled as she thought of the lady   down
town.   "Now, madam, you're welcome
to the fruit of my labor."
If she  felt the least bit  guilty,  (he
memory of the many hours of envo ami
thought that she had glvoil in llto
(mining of green girls enme to npponsu
her conscience
"1 only wish I could seo tin- other
acts," she said to Mr. Muson. "1 expect to bu lu the tilth myself, but I
feel I shall miss ihe third nnd fourth."
Christina reported bright anil curly
at Mrs. Bonder's, eager to prove herself worthy of her advance, Circumstances compelled Mrs. Bender lo leave
tier entirely to her own devices the
first day, but ou Ihe morning of lho
Becond she came in haste into the
"Christina," she snld, "get breakfast
as quickly as possible. Mr. Bonder
wants to make tbut early train. We
generally want toast, but wo will get
along without It tbis morning, and we
like It rare," she said, pointing lo the
"Rare!" Christina exclaimed,
"Yes, rare. You understand what
that Is, don't yon v"
"Well, we always take It rare and
our coffee strong."
"You take coffee for breakfast?"
"Always, And we would like it as
soon as possible, Christina."
Mrs. Bender sailed out of the kitchen
and confidentially told Mr. Bender that
the now girl seemed exceedingly stupid or else she had u very peculiar
"She Is In a constant state of surprise." she added, "and, 1 declare, I
smell bread toasting. 1 told her not
to toust It this morning."
In nu Incredibly short time the
breakfast bell rang, and when the Bender family sat down to the table tbe
look of surprise was transferred from
Christina's face to theirs, for on the
platter lay a fine steak, fresh from the
refrigerator, and In place of tho pot of
steaming coffee sat a pitcher of led
cold lemonade. Mrs. Bender rang the
bell with exceeding energy, and when
untonictbi.fi Chrlo-inn noBwM^ mey
each made n f ran tic effort to convince
the other thnt she was responsible lor
the mistake. Mrs. Bender grew angry,
and Christina resorted to tears, and
while Mr. Bender listened to their confusing explanations ho made his breakfast on toast and lemonade.
Matters grew worse rapidly, and In
spite of repeated and patient explanations Christian's Ideas were In a state
of hopeless confusion, hut neither she
uor Mrs. Bonder ever thought of tho
little woman on the hill ns the author
of all their troubles. At the end of
two weeks Mrs. Bender took a street
car for Walnut hill and, seeking out
Mrs. Mason, usked her if she would not
be willing to take Christina hack. Mrs.
Mason artfully hesitated a moment
and thou consented.
"I am so relieved." Mrs. Bender snld,
"for 1 keep her In tears half of the
time, nud she seems so- anxious to
please me. I can't understand how
any one can be us stupid us she is."
So Christina euine hack, and for four
years she did faithful service In Mrs.
Mason's kitchen, mid for the first time
in ber life thut Ingenious little woman
did not live In constant fear of "anoder place down town."—Whnt to Eat

Etiquette Is a form of fashion more
Important than style In dress, for the
reason that the varying codes of manners have Influenced morals, something changing the cut of a coat cannot be said to have done. When etiquette demanded that a gentleman accept a challenge or acknowledge himself a coward lu tho minds of Ids fellow citizens, it encroached sharply
upon ethics. Now that it has gone out
of fashion to kill, gentlemen lind small
difficulty In keeping the sixth commandment. The less formal etiquette
becomes tho less wanton taking of Ufa

good breeding of consequence,
As the civilized nice now stands either man or woman can be roflned, regardless of sliu|ie of hat ho or she
wears. This was due In any century,
hut 200 years ago nud back of thnt
period a gentleman ami lady could, according to approved etiquette, gobble
food with their hands from a common
dish set In the center of the dining table and filled with the entire fashionable bill of fare prepared for the occasion, iinuei'nlly we now acknowledge
such proceedings to be "bnd form" ami

} THE LOSS of *
By t\ Qu&d.
Copyright,   1901,   by C. B. Lewis.
I It Is now 20 years since the marine
tragedy at Valdlvla, a port lu Chile,
end lhe mystery surrounding the affair ls not much clearer than It was tho
day after It occurred. At midnight
oue dark und rainy ulght a Spanish
man-of-war named tho Huafa and carrying a crew of 40U men entered the
buy nt slow speed, Intending to anchor
within half a mile ot the wharfs. Of a
sudden sho was almost lifted out of tlu-
waters and canted over on her beam
ends, and something was felt to scrape
along her whole side and keel. There
wns instant alarm throughout the
whole ship, but before a single mnn of
the watch below could reach the deck
the Huafa turned turtle and went
down In 00 feet of water. The suction
carried down all who were on deck,
nud of that whole crew only 14 men escaped With their lives:, nnd among them
wns not one Blnglo otHccr, xney were
all agreed that the bows of the ship
were suddenly lifted to un angle of 4.ri
degrees apd lhat nfter a few seconds
Pbe was twisted to port, and they heard
the suapplug and crushing of wood aud
It wna nt first believed that the Hun-
fa had struck und run upon a submerged wreck, but after a vain search fur
Along the bottom for a distance of three

sen. Just oil' the entrance of tbe port
the water deepens to iim) feet and it
was cuiiilmled that she bad been carried Into this basil) to lie burled under
the ooze, 'lhe commission of Inquiry
clum-d ii*- labors much more befogged

Mas mil believed that anything further
Would over be beard nf (he craft. Nothing over has been directly, but many
things have come to light io mm further tangle the mystery BUri'Otllldlng

Without barnacles, proving thai It had
Hot long been alloat. It was concluded
from this tbat tho Huafa wus still
creeping along the bottom, the plaything of tlie current, uiyl Hie last find
made almost settled the question. A
second boat und more wreckage wero
washed ashore nlmost as far down as
Cape Horn, and la tho bottom uf the
boat were six liu-lies of liquid mud.
This must have accumulated an sho
floated or crept along the bottom ol
Hie sen, and the chances are thut the
1'i.ai did uot drift above 20 miles after
rising to tho surface.
As to tlie accident in tho hay, It tl
generally believed thnt the vessel
struck a large whale which had entered out of curiosity and thnt In his
pain und fright the giant flsh hud hove
her up nud then thing her on her side,
hut as uo whale had ever been Been In
the buy there Is room for doubt Wreck
or whale or whatever It may hnvo been,
It was Hie cause of one of the gloomiest tragedies of lhe sen. and no ono
can Imagine thnt ill fated craft slowly
creeping down iffound the Ood forsaken point of land which men call Cape
Horn without a sigh of pity for tho
skeleton erc-f that mans its iron decks.

It would have been set down to a boiler

at hand. Tin. iluiit'u wan net to ha

sweep out to sea on the south lido,
I Tlio surface Of tlio hay wan only dls-

foro touching bottom had lhe rush of a

lent ran strongest as the tide Unwed

terof fact, however,the north shore was

followed, and then they hoped to And
the sunken craft lu some eddy near tbe
center. It Wllfl live mouths before the
dlvorfl declared that the bottom was
clear of wreck of any sort
Now came tlie question of what had
became of tbe man-of-M'tir. It did not
seem possible that such n mass of
wood and iron, with the weight of her
puns and stores nml unfortunate crew
added, could he drifted any distance
along the bottom, especially ns the bottom was plentifully sprinkled with
great rocks. There was no other way
to account for her disappearance, however.   Tlio current had bumped ha

So Important are their artistic merit
nnd historic value that no history of
tapestry Is complete that does not Include a description of their design nnd
execution. For more than 200 years
the exlstenco of the papal manufactory of tnitfi*tpl*M wan unlinewu to tlie
modern world. Documents relating to
Its origin and productions were hurled
and forgotten lu the mass of manuscript In tho famous Barber!ui library
until n very recent date, when they
Mere unearthed by Eugene Mont/* director of the National Ec'ole des Beaux
Arts at r;irts. In the popular mind
ull tapestries are associated with the
Qobelin factories of France.
Curious to relate, not n yard of tapestry wna ever W0V6U by a member of
the Gobelin family. Immortality came
to tin-in from the fact thnt in the middle of the fifteenth century the founder
of the family established n dyehouse
which became famous nud brought
tho proprietors fortune. Descendants
shrewdly transported skilled tapestry

it rushing business, which menus that
the local truffle is good, thut the

sis for business or pleasure. This is
exactly the sume sort of Information
ns is conveyed by the news that the
earnings of the tlrand Trunk or tho
Canadian Pacific Railway have Increased by hundreds uf thousands,
The railways could not live without
tlie farms. In itself, the fact thut
John Williams has the wall of his

seem unimportant; but when we
speak of a general improvement in
farm building.--, wc nre merely di;-
scrlhlng in an abstract way what is
here given in u, concrete form. There
cannot bo a general improvement
without some particular Improvement; nnd this is one of them. A tilled ic sports ure not neglected iu the
