Dear Friend Eneas: Hello, Ohl Fatty!
Uow are they using you anyway? They
are not using me any too had. It was
pretty hard on us the first few days, hut
we are getting used to it now. We drill
about four hours a day, two in the morning and two in the afternoon. We have
about 300 horses here now, hut have not
used any of tbem yet. There seems to
be some pretty hard tickets among them.
Tbere have been about six fellows kicked
by tbem already. Tbey roll us out of
bed at 5:30 in the moruing to get out
and take care nf the horses. It has heen
very cold here tbe last two or three
daya. We bave got cur uniforms, four
•suits altogether. More clothes than I
ever had tn my Hie before. In fact, 1
hardly kuow what to do with them. Of
course if I had tbem in No. 10 I suppose
you, McNeil and Brock would have a
suit apiece, aud I would be as poor as
ever. Thia is a great town on Saturday
nights and Sundays, (Charlie says), you
have to beg to get a drink. Ike Foster
is the life of the camp. Jack-BonsOeld
was down home at Toronto for a few
days. AU the boys are pretty well doue
up with colds. We are on the exhibition
grounds. We hunk in Ihe stables and
they are a little airy. We get pretty
good grub, but are only allowed out till
9:30, unless we have a special pass, as
they call Ibe roll at 9:30, but we often
go out and stay later titan that and
make a special pass of our own through
tbe fence. I suppose]McNeil and Spell-
man are with you yet. We saw Jimmie's
mother and brother as we passed through
Winnipeg. They were afraid that Jim-
mie was wilh us. We should soou have
a pay day, aud I don't know what I will
do with all the money—four bits a day.
If I get it I will get my photos taken and
aead tbem down to the boys. Wk arc-
all about broke uow. so we have to keep
pretty quiet. Well, this is all tbe Hew&
I kmw at present, and I hope that'this
letter finds yourself and- all "the boys
well, as it leavea all the boys hete. They
all send ft-est regards and wish to he remembered to all. I think if you answer
this letter fight away it will catch us
here, and I will write you again before 1
The same old chicken,
Walt. Edwards.

It Relieves In Protecting Ibe Business Men
of South East Kooier-v.
A few wfeeks ago The Herald received
request from an eastern advertising
agency for rates. The request was com-
ptiftl witli it nd lhe same rales quoted as
are gtv.eu to the business meu of this
district. The Herald does not believe
iu making fish of one and fowl of Ihe
olher in the matter oi rates, and we have
always insisted, since we have been in
lhe business, that if theie was lo he auy
cut in rales, it would tie given to the
home advertiser, aud not to some foreign
firm. The tales'were accepted iu this
case, and a contract forwarded for an
advertisement for one ofthe leading de- i
partment ' stores of Toronto. Now, a
newspaper editor hates to throw off any
coin. He needs it in his business, and
here was f 20 cold, in this contract, hut
It was no temptation to The Herald,
simply for the reasou that this paper had
no desire lo extend an Invitation to the
people of this district to send dowu east
for*_ their goods, when they could be
bought here at home. Snch an adver-
ii-ieul'eit't-woiild work' more injury to the
merchants than any oilier one thing
could possibly do. It urges the reader
to send for catalogues and samples, and
holds up llie inducement that big money
cau he saved by   patronizing the eastern
In the first place this is a fallacy.
Little or no money can be saved wben
postage and freight is taken in consideration. Then, again, the Toronto department house does not care two cents for
the prosperity of Cranbrook and South
Hast Kootenny. It there are sidewalks
to build, tbe home merchants subscribe
fi$lo fio. If there is distress in any
family, the home merchant assists to al-
leviatt it. If tbere is fire apparatus to
buy. the home merchant is nlways down
011 the list. If there is to he any celebration, the home merchant puts up n
large portion of the money. If there is
a movement to advance the interests of
Craubrook, the home merchant is thc
one who gives his money nud bis time
lo push it along. The home merchant
is 11 permanent resident of the town,
Ills money builds homes and furnishes
work to all kinds of labor. His money
is always in circulation for the good of
tlu* community and materially assists in
building up a town lhat enables the
workman who has left the east on account of low wages, to earn good wages
here. -
These are the reasons that caused The
Herald to return the contract endorsed
"respectfully declined," with the additional explanation' that this paper
would not accept aii advertisement at
any price, that it beleived would, directly or indirectly, injure'the business men
of this district. That is The Herald's
position, and it will adhere lo it so long
as the paper Is published.

McDuff, slating  lhat  there were  four

Victoria, B. C„ March 3.—It Is probable (hut the scene enacted when the
stormy aud unprofitable session closed is
without parallel in the history of British
government. On the part of tbe mem
hers the action waa evidently pre-ar-
tauged, and so far as their part was concerned there was noi th; slightest bitch.
It all went like a well written play, aud
it will pass upon the records as tbe most
dramatic affair in connection with provincial legislative history. It was ot
coms;e tiie choice of Mr, Martin, for the
premiership, tbnt roused the dominating
bitterness aud prepared the way for the
most extraordinary spectacle* ever witnessed in a Bri ish house of representatives. The course adopted by the house
was arranged on Wednesday evening,
and both sides found themselves bound
in common cause against the the action
of the governor, l'arly d (Terences, old
grudges, were dropped iu the face of
what some did uot hesitate lo call the
common enemy. With a full under
standing of what their course would he,
ihe members went down to the chamber
where a stormy hum of conversation indicated lhat great events were ou lhe
tremble. Members stood in groups irrespective of party, and eageily discussed
Ibe rituatiou. Theu the speaker took
tbe chair acd prayera were read, tbe
vast audience reverentially standing in
silence. Almost before the people had
resumed their seats, Mr. Prentice hud
risen with a question of privilege resolution, whieh had a seconder iu Captain
Irving, nnd read as follows:
"This house has no confidence iu the
honorable third member for Vancouver,
Air. Martin, who has been called upon
by the lieutenant governor to form a
Wild cheers burst from the galleries,
aud tbe members joined unanimously in
the overwhelming uote of approval.
The rules were suspended and the motion passed, only Mr, J. M, Martiu of
Rosslaud, voting nay. Hon. Dr. Mc*
Keclittle was on his feet asking for a
record of the names wheu imperative
orders came to the sergeant-at-arms to
remove the bar of the house, as his
honor aud retinue were waiting to enter.
The sergeaut-at-arms hurried to the
brass rail tbnt means so much in the
pomp and circumstance of parliamentary
government, and hoisted it up and back.
The big doors of the hall were then
thrown open and his honor resplendent
gotgeous uniform, carrying a gold-
hilled court rapier, was seen for a moment, standing in the full glare of the
brilliant sunshine that streamed in from
the dome; behind him, iu formation of
lwo deep, were several naval and military officers, whose uniforms heightened
the effect of tbe picture. The imposing
pageant advanced slowly up the center
aisle toward the throne, and hia honor
leisurely mounted the steps Between
him aud Mr. Speaker Forster not a
movement of salutation was made. The
two simply looked straight at one
another, Theu the sergeant-at-arms
having removed the mace Mr. Speaker
slowly turned away, and went down on
the left side to the floor of tbe house,
his honor immediately taking the chair.
The oliicers grouped themselves on the
steps and ou tbe dias beside his honor.
AM this took only a few moments, but
while this was going on. every member
of the house had left the house, going
out by the doors nearest their own seats,
and when his honor looked up it was to
behold tbe strangest spectacle (bat ever
greeted Ihe eyes of a representative of
Uiieeu Victoria or any other British
monarch. Not a soul was lo be seen on
the floor of the house from the fool of
the house to the north door, where au
ohl man stood peering as though undecided whether to enter and take a seat
or uot. From tbe galleries burst a
slot in of derisive laughter, hooting and
groans. The officers of Ihe staff seemed
uch embarrassed. His honor visibly |
blanched and appeared for the moment
ompletely nonplussed. He coughed
slightly, put out his band toward his
private secretary, withdrew it and pulled
dowu the peak of his cocked hat, then
pressed his spectacles more closely to
his eyes. Next he took from his secretary's hands a copy ofthe speech. It
was upside down so he turned it around
and coughed again, The uproar in the
galleries continued. The naval and
military officers fidget ted and looked
surprised aud uncomfortable, It was
painful to observe his honor's restless
nervousness as he pressed his hands together in agitation, for the time being
seeming not to know what to do. Mr.
Joseph Martiu stood near lhe clerk's
desk, impassive as a statue—he showed
no sign of either agitation or anger. His
was perhaps the only countenance iu
the whole assembly that was absolutely
Immobile. His honor rose slowly, lhe
speech in his hand, bowed with formal
motion lo the empty benches, and fai-
leringly began to read the speech, A
wild outburst of jeering laughter, applause ami stamping came from the galleries and drowned his opening sentence
Then he tried again, aud  got uo further

Herald will be continued during my absence ou the same lines ti:at has established its reputatieu as a friend of the
people ami an untiring worker for tbe
best Interests of the  district as a whole.
The reason fur my temporary absence
is a simple one. '1 he average newspaper
muu, although laboring early aud late
for the prosperity of the community iu
which he lives, is uot bothered witb accumulated wealth. 1 am one of the
average, and at ihis time I have what
seems to me mi opportunity to make

"It is impossible to depict the enthusiasm of tbe beleaguered garrison; cheer

was cheered with heartfelt enthusiasm.
He addressed lhe Chilians and thanked

Between casualties and sickness Sc-00
soldiers passed through the hospital.
I: is impossible to overemphasize lhe
privations of the sick. Since the middle of January a man once down was
lost. Tbe reduced rations of soldiers
fust sufficed for tbeir subsistence. Pally
thirty old bones and mules were slaughtered and convet ted into soup acd sausages. From January 15 to now there
have been over WO deaths from disease
alone. The last fortnight saw lhe majjr-
ity of tbe field batteries unhorsed and
ibe guus permanently posted in our de-

converted into Infantry and sent to lhe
trenches. A line of defense had been

A blind phrenologist h'as been examining lhe beads of many of the boys the

number of things that makes them feel

Neither water, nor air, nor vegetation,
nor ei Idence of life In any form can bo

powerful telescope ovor constructed.
The greal Yerkes telescope 1ms already
entered upon Itsoarcerof scientific uso-
fulness by adding further proof to tho
well-established fact that the moon is
.. dentl world. II hns been trained upon
the lunar sphere bj two of the best
known astronomers of this country,
who are connected with the Yerkes uh-
pervatory, nl u time when hy u peculiar
coincidence the scientists of Paris were
preatlv agitated over the discovery of
what were believed - i bo Indications of
rivers and plant*? up mi the moon.
Il was the good fortune of P. L, 0.
Wndsworlh, one of the observatory
sttilT, to gel tin* firsl glimpse of the
moon through the YerkcB telescope. E.
\:. Rnrnnrd was the next member of the
stoif to gaze ut thc far-away planet,und
Hi* conclusions of those two learned
gentlemen arc Identical in thnt they
ngree thai neither discovered anything
of Importance to the scientific world.
'Iii.- peculiar lines and spols noticed by
the Parisian astronomers on Ihe map
of the lunar planisphere that is being
photographed in the Mendon observn*
lory were not to he kccii through the
Yerkes telescope. There was nothing
edditlonnl to he noticed hut au unusual
iimoiittt of detail on the surface of thc
moon never seen before.
"The moon tea mnghlficcnlsight seen
through the Yerkes instrument," Raid
Mr. Itnt'ti'ird recently. "One can see nn
enormous number of small details never
seen before, sueh ns small craters nnd
minute crevasses, but Ihere nre nn
traces of air nor vegetnblc life to be do-
■ci ted. It is possible that the line*?
found on the photographs taken nt the
Mention observatory mlghl be crevasses,
I don't pretend to say what Ihey represent,   I only know that lhe observations
'aken here fail to glvo any confirmation
of the theories of the Parisian astronomers." i
The reported discoveries tit the
French observatory aroused the interest of a number of astronomers who
gathered at lhe Yerkes observatory for
tbe purpose of attending its dedication'. None of the number wns
■■indy to give nny indorsement of the
theory thnt life prevailed In any form
on the moon, howover, and all agreed
wilh the opinion expressed In these columns the other day by R, W. Burnham,
If lhe atmospheric conditions had been
fiivoruble il ia likely thai every one of
tin* distinguished scientists would hnve
uvnilcd himself of the chanco to peep
.it lhc moon, lint tills pleasure hail to
he foregone, because of I he clouds.
"There nre just us good photogrnphs
taken through small iuKtrumentH as
with large ones," said George ti. Hale,
director of the Yerkes observatory.
"Prof, l.newy. director of the Paris ob*
-ervtilory, Ims undoubtedly mnde the
bcsl photographs of lhc moon, hut the
best photogrnphs ever made will not
show ns much us enn be seen through
IS-lnch telescope. The lines noticed in
the photographs of ihe Mendon ob
servolory hnvo always been noticed, and
uo astronomer has yet ventured tons*
seri that they represent active rivers.
1 entirely agree with lhc views of Mr.
Ilurnhnm on the subject."
Carl Hunge, dii tor of spectroscopy
at ilu* observatory in Hanover, Germany, is another one of the distinguished visitors at the Yerkes observatory who holdB contrary viows to those
reported nn coming from Paris. He considered it very Improbable thai a photograph of the moon would he made ihat
would show objects 1,000 feet long or
high. With Prof. Hnlc, he believed it
possible thut the spots on the Mendon
photographs, which were not considered shadows, were to be accounted for
■is variations iu the color of the moon's
A niong the other nst ronomers present
ni the Yerkes observatory were Simon
Neweomb, director of the Washington
observatory; Prof. II. f. Lord, director
of ihe Emerson McMillan observatory
at the Ohio slate university, and Prof.
George T. romstoclc, director of   the
Washburn observatory of lhc Wisconsin -talc university at Madison. The hitler will present a paper before the distinguished gathering of special interest

They were discussing various tilings
in Ihe clerk of the supreme court's oflice the other day, that is, a party of

I'ew peonle understand the mystery of
tniee. I think 1 inn, without ionooilesiy,
claim in understand mice, for 1 have
tninlt* thom n study for many years, I
used to thluh that nature supplied mice;
wherever there (coined to any call tor
them. Por example, if ymi live la a
bouse where there ate uo mice and lu
a rash moment provide yourself with a
mouse trap or set un a eat mice will Immediately make their appearance. To
ihe super field I observer this looks as if
nature, iicrcotvlng that you have a mouse
trap, proceeds to suniily mica for It, or,
noticing that you have a eat, semis mice
enuugh to satisfy tho animal. 'But thin is
imt the true explanation. In order to understand mice yoa must grasp the fuet
that (lie mouse Is an anininl witli a keen
sense of humor nnd a love of excitement.
Willi this key In yonr possession you cau
readily unlock the mystery of mice.
That the mouse has a sense of humor 1§
conspicuously shown by the way in
which he .vi!l rattle a newspaper In your
bedroom nt night, 'i'he mouse does not
ent iicWBpaporB, nor does he pnt them to
any domestic use. He merely makes a
noise with them, knowing that of alt
sounds the midnight rustic of a newspaper is the one which will most successfully banish sleep from your eyes. If a
mouse finds nn eligible newspnper In your
bedroom he will settle himself down to
ii night of fun and jollity. He will rattle
that newspaper till moruiug, aud the only
effect of throwing boots at him or of getting up ami lighting the gas aud searching for liim with it poker will be that he
will hide himself till you lie down to
sleep and then resume his little newspaper game. If this dt.es not show a sense
of humor it would he ditliculi to pay what
it does show.
Then ihere is the well known fact that
no sootier dins n mouse trap or a cat enter n house than it Is followed hy a
troop of mice. Cats nud traps draw mice
as tbe pole draws the magnet. The
mouse loves llie ptnie of teasing the cat
liy stiuiuhiUnu the letter's hopes of capturing mice, it is considered lhc height
of ruu among mice to scuttle across s
room In lhe presence of a cat ntiil to dia-
appenr in a hole just ns the ent is ready
lo pounce. Of course, now and then a
too reckless mouse pnys the penalty of
rashness by beiug caught by the ent, but
n-CCldeutS of this kind arc more rare
among mice than football accidents
Rinong men and iu uo way render mice
shy of the game.—t'eursou's.
