Cranbrook & Fort Steele s-s* Wardner
mmmmwmmmwBmmwmm\
Ult Saturday waa a day long to be re*
nietnbered iu Cranbrook. Forty-two
aturdy young men of South East Koote*
nay, who had offered their services for
England aud the Union Jack, boarded
the eaat bound train bere at noon under
command of Captain Parker," and left
for the battle fielda of South Africa.
There were cheera for thoie departing
and. aa the train alowly pulled out, the
vast concourse of people gathered al
the station raised their voices in one
prolouged cheer for the brave boys who
had said good bye lo home and friends
and turned their facet eastward, as
soldiers of the Queen. Amid the cheers
there were many sobs, and down the
wrinkled cheeks of veterans as well as
tbe smoother onea of the young, tear
chased tear, and In many instances a
fervent hand clasp waa the extent ofthe
expression on either side. It was a sad
occasion, and yet'the patriotism and
1 yalty of the people predominated.
The tender feelings were sacrificed on
the alter of duty, and not one of the
brave boys regretted enlisting at the try
ing moment when good bye waa said to
relatives and friends.
The South Bast Kootenay contingent
arrived from Fort Steele about u
o'clock, accompanied by the Fort Steele
band and a large body guard of Fort
Steele citizens, there being quite a number of ladf«~fii*the party; Soon after
arriving the contingent was marched to
to the station by Captain Parker and
placed in line ou the platform when
Photographer Prest took two views, and
also another later. About an hour was
given the boys to say their farewella,
and to attend to auy business before
leaving.
Wben the east bound traiu arrived,
West Kootenay's contingent, fifty-sis
strong, under command of Lieutenant-
Colonel Morris, marched up to the Cosmopolitan for dinner.
It was'about ri o'clock when tbe order
was given to board the cars The long
station platform was covered witb a
great mass of humanity, white on the
ground 11 the immediate vicinity there
were a couple hundred more excited aud
interested spectators. Tbe engine gave
a long, shrill, warning whistle, and the
command, "aU aboard," was passed
along the line. Then came the final
farewells. "Good bye'Haynea," "Write
to me, Charlie," "Pull Oom Paul's
whiskers, Ike," "Give 'em full steam,
Edwards," "Stay with 'am, Fish,"
'Keep your eye on the girls, Wilke,"
'Hurry back, Bob," and ao on with
neatly every uj-e tuber. The band
played, the crowd yelled, and aa long as
the train could be seen, just so long were
the boys hsnging out of tbe windows
waving farewell to dear old Cranbrook
and their friends,

Last Thursday evening the people ot
Fort Steele gave a concert and dance in
honor of tha departing contingent. Both
events were a success In every r-fcspect.
Thoae in attendance, and that Included
nearly every parson lo Fort Steele, -vied
with each other in making It pleasant
for the soldier boya. There waa music,
both vocal and Instrumental, patriotic
speeches, recitations, ate. The dance
waa largely attended, and not a -soldier
boy was allowed to be a wall flower. In
consequence they all had a glorious
time, and tha Cranbrook members of
the contingent are loud in their praise of
courtesies extended by the ladies, ami
good fellowship displayed by tbe meu.
Moaore-i With Strifes.
The following members of the contingent were honored with stripes, subject
to |the approval later ol tba officer in
command: West, Clarke, Ilonsficld.
Foster, Hewea, Natbitt, Crcc, Hammond
and Harper aa corporals. 8. Wright and
William Panning were named aa ear-
geaote. Csptain Parker's rank with tha
contingent will be -senior lieutenant.
Tbe ray la MratkeaaV Herse.
For the benefit of those who are curious to know what pay the volunteers
for the Strathcona Horse will receive, it
may be said that until tha corpse arrive
in South Africa mounted police pay will
prevail, which is aa follows: Private
50 cents per diem, corporal 85 cents, sergeant^, sergeant major f 1.50. On arriving in Africa tha tine cavalry scale
will be paid, which is: Private one shilling and two pence, corporal two shillings, • sergeants two shillings and eight
pence, troop sergeant major three shillings and 10 pence, squadron^aergeant
major Tour shillings and four) pence.
Tbis may be supplemented by a grant
from the Canadian government sufficient
to bring the pay up to that paid to tbe
Canadian militia, which is about the
same as the mounted police rate.

THE OESIRE TO JUMP.
An tJ«e***»ecie-i H^Baattea BzperUae-
ed br Manr Peraoaa,
Many persous who visit Niagara falls
find they have a great desire to leap from
various, points on the several bridges or
from oue of the numerous points of observation. For this reason, after one*?
having experienced the fascinating sensation that waxes them ou to death in
tho deep and rapid running waters, they
never go near any of the seductive points
without being in company with some one
who will guard them from harm as a result of what perhaps might lie termed
by some thoir weakness.
Mnny people who have visited Niagara
havo confessed that the waters of the
beautiful river had a weird fascination
for them while standing in places where
death would be ensy by simply letting go
one's hold and slipping Into th* river,
aud people saved from suicide thero have
admitted that they knew no reason why
(hey should end their Uvea, but tho scene
was so delightful that It coaxed them lo
seek the peace of death there.
ln olher places than at Niagara the
public comes In touch with folks whu.
wheuou an elevation, have apronenest
to jump-tiff, and. ft* this reason they keep
sway from all such'danger boluis. An
interesting explanttlou of this desire \s
tliat given some years ago hy Professor
Lowe of'the army balloon corps. Ho had
frequently Invited a-yjtipwipaper correspondent to make an aaecnsioa with him,
bnt each time tha luvita'tlon was declined.
Later be told, the professor of the
temptntleu Iip had U> Jiinlp from high
places and tbat he' feared making au ascent. IV this be waa laighed at, the
professor Mating that l|»0 '■rtaWm people
had such desires was that th^y JjTfre full

In the earth wnS the" a t tract Uny and that
what be was standing ou carried'the current, lie also, said that when up in a
balloon tha coutiuyliy was cut off. Finally the man'mado an ascension and
found that the .dealro to jump wus not
present. It la a'oiirlonsstatement.—Philadelphia Iteeord.       ' ;

court Reddy becomes an equal owaer in
the townsite with Campbell, Howev*r
James Cronin, P. A. U'Fan el aud John
M. liurke.retain a small interest in
Reddy's sbaie, somewhere about a
tenth each. P. J. McMahon at one time

IT PAYS TO PAPER
But to have it pay
properly, you must
get the value of your
money in paper, and
then have the paper
put on by workmen
who understand their
business. Any man
can paper a room and
any man can cut a
head of hair.. But,
the question arises,
how will it be done?
Do you want your
paper to wrinkle? Do
you want a botch job
No, of course you
don't. You want
good work. When
you are ready, see
