ner and Hutchison, was held Monday, ai
night for the purpose ot conferring with
Col, James Baker and V. Hyde Baker
local agent of the townsite, regarding
the site to be sekcted for the new school
building. The townsite company had
donated one-half of block 145 for Ihe
purpose but there was un expressed desire 011 the part of some of the citizens
for a location iu the south part of town,
Colonel Baker stated that if the people
desired to locate the school house elsewhere the towmii'.' could not donate
more than two or three lots for the purpose. It was then decided in a public
meeting to approve the report submitted

the selection of block 143, and that is
where the school house will be built.
As the matter of location is now definitely settled, arrangements will be made to
commence work as soon as possible.

Cranbrook a Clean Town.
About a week ago Constable Morris,
acting under the direction of the local
health committee, served notice on all
property owners and residents to clean
up their premises, The people entered
upou the work with remarkable zest and
spirit, and as a result tbere is not a
cleaner towu in tbe Kootenays today
than Craubrook. The streets, private
premises and the railroad yards have
beeu goue over and now present a neat
aud attractive appearance.
Not In Our Line.
Thk Hi.kai.d is in receipt of a communication from a citizen of Fernie that
we cannot publish, since it is chiefly devoted to personal criticisms of residents
of Femie and the editor of the Free
Presr. The writer may have a grievance
against the Free l'i ess editor, but, about
ninety-nine times in one hundred, the
paper is right aud the kicker ia wrong.
We kuow nothing of tbe merits of tbe
case, aud have no desire to interfere
with the matters in Fernie.

The Leader a Year Old.
The Moyie Leader is a year old, and
F. W. Smyth, the editor, is to lie c* u-
gratulated on the excellent work he has
done during that time, not only for
Moyie but for tbe whole district. The
Leader has been clean, newsy, well
edited aud a credit to tbe town of Moyie
and the publishers; aud it is to the
credit of the people of that town when
the editor Is able to say that the residents who are not subscribers could be
counted 011 the fingers of one hand. It
shows that the people believe in slaying
by a paper that slays by them,
Will Move to Cranbrook.
Mr. C. M Kdwards, at present mining
recorder for this district, Iibb tendered
liis resignation which will take efleet on
May 1. He will then come to Cranbrook to assume charge of tbe townsite
business for Mr. V. Hyde Baker, during
the letter's absence in K11 rope, and will
occupy the Baker residence with his
family. This will be good news to the
people of Cranbrook, as Mr. and Mrs.
Kdwards will be a pleasant acquisition
to the social life of this city.
A Movement In the Right Direction.
The Rossland Board of Trade has issued a circular to the other boards in
Kootenay suggesting a Board of Trade
convention for the discussion of all questions of general interest to Kootenay.
The Cranbrook Board, at a recent session, considered the question and decided to approve of the plan, suggested
Nelson as the best place lor the meeting
and that two delegates should be named
for each Board of Trade.

Season-Other Railway Notes
of General Interest.
Word has been received from Montreal
that Vice President Shaughnessy, of lhe
C, F. K., will not be able to start ou his
western trip until the latter part of next
month. This fact will, in all probability,
leave the question of the North Star
branch in suspense for awhile. At least
that would seem to be tbe case from all
information that is obtainable at this
time. The people of this district are
anxious to see this branch built, and especially are the people of Craubrook desirous of seeing work commenced <it an
early date. The building of this road
means much to Kimberly. It means
much to Cranbrook and it means much
to tbe district as a whole, since its completion would place two or three more
shipping mines in tbe field al once, and
mines, the output of which would add
largely to the reputation of the district
as a great mineral producing country.
That llle road will be built this season,
theie seems to he no doubt now, and it
is evidently only a question ol time and
preliminary arrangements. This branch
is one of many Important extensions and
improvements decided upon at the annua) meeting of the stockholders, aud
must necessarily wait its turn at lhe
bands of the managers of the company.

considered himself well repaid. The

The titles of the King of Spain suggest a large part of the history of the
world. He Is King of Jerusalem,
which Is Turkish; of Navarre, which la
French; of Gibraltar, which Ih British,
and of the East and West Indies, which
are largely British; Hnke of Brabant
uud Count of Flanders, now the two Independent kingdoms of Holland aud
Belgium; and sovereign of numerous
other lands long since independent or
under tho undisputed sway of other
powers. He bears upon hla person,
Indeed, an epitome of the glory and the
fall of Spain.
An Intelligent effort Is being mnde to
convince European nations that corn

headway Is being made, aud since the
United States produces more than two
billion bushels, the export supply may
be regarded as equul to any demand
the corn evangelists operating In Europe can create. The royal family of
Denmark takes kindly to corn, ami
when fully converted, as seems probable, a European corn-fed aristocracy
may be created.
In New York,the great difficulty of the

tho fourth year tbut the vacant lot
farms huve been carried on In New

of men have been so trained In the
flrst principles of agriculture that they
have expressed a willingness to take

China has at last made Its first concession to an American company. The
Secretary of State has received notice
that the American -China Development
Company Iuih been permitted to build a
railroad from Hankow ou the Yang*

sea. The Hue will be '.mn mites loug
end will run through provinces tributary to a population of nearly 00,000,-
000 people. The company now Is negotiating for extensions to the main line,
which It Is also believed will be granted. With a view of enabling the Chinese ultimately to construct and operate railways tho American-China Development Company Is to establish a
school of practical Instruction In railways, where Chinese shall be educated
ln questions relating to railway construction, operation, and management.
All materials and apparatus for the
proposed road are to enter tbe Chinese
empire free of duty, In a manner similar to that adopted In the case of the
railway now running west from Tien-
Tsln. The granting of this concession
serves to emphasize the Importance of
our recent operations at tbe Philippines,
The conditions at Australia and the
Philippines show the differences ln the

practically the same civilized conditions exist as In England, and everything that can be done to reform the

The Koreans are exhibiting the wildest delight over the announcement that
their king is about to marry. This act
on Ills part means more to those people than Is commonly supposed by
such us are Ignorant of some of the
curious customs of that people. The
king takes precedence In nil matrimonial affairs, for ao long as the king
Is single uo marriage may take place In
his domains among his subjects. All
good Koreans, therefore, who obey the
letter of the law religiously uud patriotically postpone their weddings until
tbe king has taken a spouse unto himself. Among the common people this
law Is not strictly obeyed, but among
the nobility nnd the better class of
people no ono would think of marrying before the king, ns such n violation
of the law would cause the offender to
lose caste. But marriages are arranged
lu Korea without reference to the parties to It, and "falling in love" Is a
thing uf which a Korean Is never
guilty. Since the murder of the queen,
some two years or more ago, none of
the members of good families have
married, and the people, more than a
year since, became so Impatient for
the king to wed that they expressed
their discontent openly. The king's advisers mnde known to him the dissatisfaction among bis subjects, nud he began the work of hunting Up a wife.
Although he Is over 00 years of age
his choice was the daughter of n nobleman who bad not reached her sixteenth
year. His ministers objected to Ihe
king mnking that kind of a fool of himself- since It Is against the time-honored
customs of the empire for the king to
take it wife so many years his Junior.
The advice of the ministers prevailed,
but while the king abandoned the
maiden he could not be Induced to look
with favor upon any of the others
whom his advisers presented for his
selection. This set the people again ill
a rage, and finally the (dug delegated
to Ills advisors tbo power Of selecting
a wife for him without his Interference. This selection bus been made,
aud the future queen of Korea Is reported to be very handsome, according
to Asiatic Ideas of beauty, ami about
BO year of age.
Cat-) Tor Ita lib I is.
Cats have served heretofore as a substitute for rabbits. So particular complaint was mnde in Paris ngniiiHt the
HubslltllHon until recently. For some
reason there has arisen a great outcry against the slaughter of marketable
eats, and French Ingenuity has been
tnxed to supply the deficiency. This
Is found In a particular breed of African monkey, aud these animals are
being imported Into France In large
numbers to furnish thc basis for ruble
de llevre—broiled backs of rabbits.
The African monkeys lend themselves
very readily to the disguise, as their
backs are very fat nnd fleshy, Un.li-
blts, under any culinary treatment, are
food. They are mainly valuable as
strengthened of saueo and soup
Stocks. For this purpose they nre superior almost to any other sort of game.

SOLA VEJAIt, simple child of n
guileless race, believed In ber very
soul that wealth would outweigh
In the heart of Antonio Mnscavel the
beauty of Itefugio Oartias, great und
renowned though that might be.
Therefore, aud for this ouly, did she
sigh for riches and hate the poverty
wiih which Providence hud sect tit to
curse her. For Sola was not beautiful,
save for Hie beauty tlmt some find lu a
firm clilu and a powerful mouth, a wido
forehead and deep eyes overset with
mighty brows—which may have their
Charm for the student or his kind, hut
not for a lover, and, least of all, for a
Mexican lover.
Antonio Maacovel preferred the type
of Refugio—small-featured, red-lipped,
sofi-eyed, graceful, and lovely ub a
dark Venus. Aud his opinion was also
that of the surrounding country, of the
city of Los Angeles, and tbe mission of
Sun Gabriel, The fame of the daughter of Qartlas hud spread even among
the Americans, and when strangers
asked to be shown a beautiful Mexican, they were taken to the bouse of
Gnrfins, upou the outskirts of Souora
town. So It mny be supposed tbat Itefugio had lovers. They came from far
uud near, and from every rank of California life. There was an American
whose fortune was vast and as generously spent as fortunes were lu the early fifties; there wns nn Englishman
with n determination to have her at
any cost, even at that of n few lives—a
tendency of character which accounted
for his presence ln the Stntes nnd for
his expatriation there wns a priest who
was eating out his wretched soul for
her, nud who hnd so fnr fallen from
grace ns lo have told her bo; there were
Innumerable Mexicans, ranchers, shopkeepers, desperadoes, and gamblers, All
followed tamely aud suppllautly iu Refugio's train.
But she loved only Mascavel. She admitted It at last to Senor Garflas, when
that wiry Utile creature demanded that
she make a choice. The senor was
aghast. The possibility of It had uot
occurred lo hlm.
"Antonio Mnscavell" lie said. "But
you do uot know hlm."
Refugio nodded her little head. "SI,"
Hhe said.
"Where have you seen him?"
She was uot minded to tell of tbe
meetings In the wlllow-hldden bed of
tbe nrroyo, ao she held her pence.
"But the man Ib a bad character. He
Is a gambler."
Still Itefugio was silent. There must
be better arguments than faults, vices,
or crimes to bring against the unanswerable one that a woman loves.
Of this Senor Garflas became gradually aware afler he bad protested for
hours and for dnys, and after finding
that despite his prohibitions, despite
close supervision, his fair daughter and
Mascavel were In constant communication.
Then he hunted out Antonio himself
where he sat playing at cards lu the
bur-room of the Lafayette, nnd he
pleaded with him, courteously and respectfully, for Mascavel was a big
man and a desperate one. But he, too,
answered that he loved, nnd when all
wns snid and done. It had gone uo farther thnn this, that they both loved,
nml Hint wisdom might stand aside.
Garflas went with his battled hopes
to Senor Vcjar—tho brother of Sola.
Tbe house of Vejar-n two-romed adobe
which had never been whitewashed—
Btood several hundred yards farther
north along the road than that of Garflas. It was the last oue before tbe
open country, and had no neighbors.
Senor Volar wub much younger than
Onrllas. He hud the same mighty brow
and powerful mon Hi that made bis sis
ter hideous lo n race lhat loves alt
things gentle mid gracious, He was
one of those who pined for Refugio, but
her father did not kuow tills. Ho he
tub) hlm Hie whole Htory of his thwarted will und plans, and Implored advice
ns he mnde a cigarette,
"If It were not for the cursed laws of
the Urlngoos; If things were as they
were lu my youth, I could force my
own daughter to marry the mnn I
pleased," he said,
Vejar shook his head. "You can uot
do that," he answered.
"What, then, shall 1 do?" Garflas
was moved to the point of tears, They
hung on his long black lashes and dropped on bis old blue overalls.
The situation was too complicated to
be set straight In a moment, lt was
uot simplified by Vejnr's having his
own suit nnd chances to consider. "I
can not advise you nt ouce," he said: "I
will think nnd will help you, if I cnu, In
the morning." He took counsel with
his sister when Garflas had ridden
"Oh!" snarled Sola, "the love of Antonio! A thousand dollars would bury
It so deep that It would never rise
"Yel," said her brother, not understanding woman, "you would be glad
to have It,"
The deep eyes shone. She shrugged
her shoulders, "Yes, 1 would be glad
lo have it. And 1 could have It for a
thousand dollars—perhaps less."
"At that cost you must be content to
go without lt. What advice shall 1
give to Don Gnrflns?"
"How should I know? Let hlm see
to his own troubles, and be glad that
your sister Is not so beautiful that you
huve uo peace because of her."
It was long after dark when a horse
stopped at Vejar's adobe. Vejar had
been asleep. He Jumped up aud went
to tbe door. He had his finger on thu
trigger of bla revolver. A man stood
under the broken-down rnmadn. Before he spoke, the Mexican had seen by
the moonlight Hint he wns a Gringo.
They talked together In low tones until
Sola Joined them, rubbing her eyes and
moving noiselessly, with ber bare feet,
across the dirt floor.
"This man," said her brother, "Ib an
American. He says he Iiub rlddeu all
day to get Into Lob Angeles before
night, but his horse went lame. It la
so bad uow that he can go uo farther,
and he wishes to stay here until morning."
"Let him Btay," said Soln, not too
graciously. "He can have my bed. I
cannot sleep."
Vejar grunted In much contempt.
"Mascavel does not He awake for you,"
he said.
Sola mnde uo answer. She accepted
the fact She put the American upon
the blanket-covered willow boughs that
Rhe culled her bed. Her brother tied
Iho horse beside his own In tho roofless adobe outhouse, und fed It some
buy. He did nothing for Its lame foot.
The suffering of a dumb brute Is a
matter of utter Indifference to a Mexican, when it Is uot cause for laughtr.
Tho American waa a mere youth,
Sola saw that when the patch of moonlight finally worked around to where
he lay. He was so still that sho begun
to think he might be dead. So she rose
from where she sut upon the floor, lean-
lug against the wall, and went near to
see If he wero breathing. It seemed
that he slept very lightly, for he started up, with his left hand upon his belt
and hte right hand upon his revolver.
"You were bo still I thought you
might be dead," snid Sola, ln her deep,
placid voice, full of the Indian sweetness of souud. He took his hand from
the weapon and lay back shamefacedly. It was only a woman, a thick-set,
lazy, good-hearted Mexican. He hnd
not been able to see ber face, and be
did not kuow that the comfortless pat-
let was her bed. He turned on It and
fell asleep again. But Sola was thinking, jbong after her brother was
dreaming In the next room she crouched, looking Into the darkness with her
great, wide eyes—seeing nothing. And
ln her brain run tbe clink of the colus
as the young Gringo had put his hand
to his belt. There was a purpose In her
unflinching mind. That she debated It
therein was due only to her uncertainty as to how many coins hnd clinked,
as to whether there were enough to
buy Antonio Mascavel. Five hundred
dollars would do It—for a time. After
that he might kill her; or he might let
her live and go away with Refugio-
which would be worse. He wub a
gambler through and through, and
none the less bo because of beiug luckless. A few hundred dollars In actual
cash would present to bim unlimited
possibilities of the wealth that It might
win. And there Is nlways the poor
chance, In a woman's mind, that Hie
man may learn to love as she loves.
He might forget Refugio; or sbe might
mnrry some one else.
Fifteen minutes later she went Into
tho room where ber brother lay upou
a bed like her own. She roused hlm
with her bare foot. He lurued with a
sleepy grunt.
"Get up nud come here," she said.
She was uot a capricious creature, lt
was her way to do little, but that ln
dogged earnest. So Vejar sprung up
aud went with her. She stopped beside the bed and pointed dowu to the
"I have killed hlm," she said.
Vejar made no answer. He did not
"I hnve killed him," she repeated.
"You take hlm away nud bury hlm."
lt flashed upon Vejar that what bla
sister said was true. He was frightened. He dropped dowu beside tbo
body aud dragged It Into the streak of
"Tako care," Soln warned him; "tf
there Ib blood ou the floor lt cuu be
seen. I can burn the blauket thnt Is
en the bed; uud no one saw hlm come."
Vejar let tbe body fall, and Btood up
facing ber. She could Bee the dreadful
light la his eyes, but Bhe did not enre.
"You can turn his horse loose and It
will never be known," she said, Indifferently. "He had money. There Is
eight hundred dollars. I have counted
lt.   Antonio will marry mc for thnt."
Vejar struck her dowu with a blow
on the ureest. She aat upou the floor as
quietly as If she were busking lu the
sun, dreaming the eternal Mexican
"If you hit me again, I shall say that
you did It.   They would believe me."
Vejar stood thinking, with the body
and the woman at hla feet. He knew
that she wus right. The Grlugoei
would believe a woman. It was tin
custom of the fools. She held his lift
In her hard, broad bands', and sh<
would give It for the sake of the soft
eyed gambler ns calmly, ns relentless

ungllded beauty of Refugio Garflas go,
Many Americans disappeared In
those days, and wero never accounted
for. It wub bo with the one who had
started from the Snn Fernnudo district
to Lob Angeles, foolishly carrying a
large ntnount of gold In his belt—some
said more than a thousand dollars.
The sheriff and a posse searched und
dlil not find him; that was all.
Antonio lived with Sola for n yenr,
and she wns happy—through no fault
of his. His luck turned, and he won,
with her nest-egg, the fortune he had
dreamed of. Having done so, he left
lier and weut across the border.
For a long time Sola mourned, sullenly nnd deeply; then—Vejar having
been killed at a round-up by an enraged Bteer—she took up her abode
with Refugio, and became a devoted
nnd patient nurse to her children.

A Great Fire Dos.
The following story can be vouched
for, and In recognition of the timely
action of the dog, the Alliance Assurance Company, with whom the premises were Insured, have awarded a bII-

sagacity lu preventing what would
otherwise have been a disastrous fire,

In the basement of a large house In a
fashionable quarter of oue of our largest cities, was early oue Sunday morning lately roused by nn outbreak of
fire, whleh had apparently been smoldering for some time between the floor

Pro onging a Holiday.
A soldier sends a contemporary a

who recently found himself an Inmate

A New Type Brought About by Our
Wur wlih K pn in.
With a bouiid the military girl has
sprung Into fashion. Oue of her ways
Is the temporary abolition of the kiss—
bo far ns other girls are concerned.
Meeting ber dearest friend, she salutes
In a true army way. She does not
grub her or remark, "You dear thing!"
The arms of both girls are raised
promptly to their bats, and then shoved
out with a quick movement, Then they
are dropped to their sides und stay
The walk of the military girl Is
marked by a firm step forward, a rather
longer step than usual, and the shoulders are held well back, the head steadily up, with the eyes looking straight
forward, and the chest Is thrown well
out. This new type of girl when she
turns swings nrouud cleanly on her
heels, for alt the world like a genuine
army man.
The new military conversation, or
rather the host of military phrases,
heard these days is exceedingly Interesting. A girl returns from some shopping expedition. Before the wnr was
started she would have said very simply: "I'll go up nud tell mother about
lt." Now her phrase Is. "I'll go and
give the countersign to mother." Or,
telling n sister to say such and such
to her father, she wilt say, "Ueport to
"Advance Into the other room," Is
the proper wny to put It now, and, Instead of speaking of going up or down
stairs you should sny, If you would be

liiciitly to give an apple io 1'hll, afler
giving one to Tatters. The latter would
manifest displeasure nt this In a mild
wny, but his demonstrations never
■vein beyond the ishuLIng of his head
tnd laying back of his ears.
Hut one evening, while Tatters, who
sad just come In, was waiting for the
removal of his bridle, Phil, who was
ihead of hlm, was the recipient of an
ipple from Mrs. 1 >.'s hand, as she stood
■ulkiny to Mr. B.
A moment later the groom had re-
aioved Tatter's bridle, and ut ouce his
miBtress offered him his apple, lie
turned his head awav, uml refused to
»ueh the fruit. Mrs. I), followed him
litu his stall, and tried to coax him;

Then Mr. It., and after hlm the
groom, tried to Induce .Cutters io take

mrt because his mistress had given au
ipple to mil before giving one to hlm,

The humming sound Itself by which
the mnsqitlln ainionuci's her approach
lug visit Is produced In two dlstlnet
manners. The deeper notes which go
to make up her droning song are due
to the rapid vibration of the female Insect's wings iih she tiles; and these vl
bratloiia are found by means of a siren
(an Instrument which measures the
frequency of the ,waves In notes) to
amount to about .'1,000 In a minute.
The mosquito's wings must therefore
move with this extraordinary rapidity,
which stirlk'Ieiitly accounts for the dif-
Qoulty we have In catching one. But
the higher and shriller notes of the
complex melody are due to special
strldulaling organs situated like little
drums on the openings of the air tubes;
for the adult mosquito breathes no
longer by one or two ulr entrances oh
the talt or bnck, like the larva, but by
a number of splrncles, as they nre
called, arranged in rows along the
sides of the body and communicating
with the network of Internal air chambers,
Tho curious mosquito music thus
generuted by the little drums serves almost beyond a doubt as a means of attracting male mosquitoes, for It is
known that the long hairs on the an-
teuune ot the males vibrate sympathetically in unison with the notes of a
deal of damage. I'roiuwell fought n
great mnny battles, but one of the
bloodiest of them wus the battle of

llsease In some one of the digestive or-
jiinK. It occurs almost Invariably at
ionic stage, usually the beginning, of
the various fevers, and often Is the
,-hlef cause of complaint.
Apart from such cases, headache may
be occasional only, aud Is then usually
traceable to Indiscretion in eating or
Irlnklng, or possibly smoking, to exposure to the bot sun or a cold wind, to
overfatigue, want of sleep, or to some
other easily discoverable cause. Such
i headache Is usually relieved by a cup
A Idai-k coffee or a glnss of carbonated
water containing perhaps a half-tea-
ipoonful of bicarbonate of soda, followed by rest in a darkened but cool
md well-aired room.
The habitual headache, which recurs
K more or less frequent intervals, Is
more difficult to trace to Its fuuse, aud
more difficult lo cure. Such a head-
iche may be due to eyc-stralu, to dyspepsia, cousiiii-utlDU, mental overwork
jr worry, catarrhiU trouble, disease of
the liver or kidneys, or It may be gouty

Qouty headache Is .much more com-

tones of firecrackers, merely to keep the
world from forgetting tbat Christmas te

of July," descriptive of Christmas scenes
und customs in New Orleans, iu tbe July
LadicV Home -Journal, "Due firecracker
at a time is set olf, fur it te sinful to
waste a whole bunch at once until Christmas eve. Every night the tumult increases, a kind of jubilant upplutme in
mild explosives, a mere Intimation of
what is coming later. Every business
house which can under any pretense
'handle' fireworks, handles them by the
(on. Even the windows of the grocery
stores are filled with them, for the grocer
has recognized that there are people in
Xew Orleans who may dispense with roast
turkey stuffed with Unfiles, but nobodyL
ran do without fireworks. There areL
hundreds of children who never hung up
a stocking, but every one of them would!
think the world was coining to an end
if there were no fireworks fur him on the
one night of all the year."
