No Reason Can Be Given for the
Sudden Action and His Friends
are Alarmed.
Constable Bornes, nr Fort Steele, has
liet-n busy tlie punt few days investigating tlie mysterious disappearance ol
Walter W. Darker, who had charge oi
the construction uf the tramway at the
North Star mine. One- the 9H1 or Will
nf the month Mr, Rarker came down fot
tlle purpose of drawing some money
Irom the bauk with which to pay off hte
employes^ Me was seen on the evening
.unl stopped over night at the Forrest
hotel. Iu the morilttlg he proffered Mr
Forrest a live dollar bill in payment ol
[his account. Mr. Forrest had no small
change, antl tultl him he could settle
when he came down ngain. To this Mr
Darker cheerfully assented and passed
out ot the house. Up to tlle present
time nothing bus been beard from bim
Two or three'days afler bis departure,
his friends at Kimberley made inquiry
as to liis whereabouts. As no information was forthcoming they berame anxious, and commenced lo investigate.
Telegrams were sent to every place that
there was any possible chance of Walker
having gone to, but 110 clue was obtained
as to his whereabouts. This week Constable flames took up the matter, but up
to the present time he hns been unable
to find any trace ofthe missing man.
It is positively known that he did not
draw any inniiv-y from the bank, as be
had intended, and that at the time of
bis disappearance he had only $20 or (25
on bis person. This fact renders bis disappearance the more mysterious, and
leaves his friends at sea for want of ;i
clue to work upou.
Yesterday Mr. llarnes started on *
search along the roadway ftom Cran
brook lo Kimberley, thinking lhat perhaps he might bave heen taken ill in
trying to walk hack, and crawled into
some out of the way place, and Ihere
died, without aid or companions, but no
(race of bim could he found.
Mr. Marker came here from Trenton,
N. J,, In charge of the North Slar tram-
consliiirtioi), and was looketl upon as a
faithful and steady man in his habits,
having earned the reputation of paying
strict attention to his business. Nn
cause can be sutmised for his disappearance, and hla friends ate discouraged
over the situation,
1, V.. Lament, of Trenton, N. J., arrived tins morning to take Mr. Hat ker's
place in the woik on  the tramway.    A
llj*ku.n representative found him in
compauy with J. I*. Morgan, who came
bore with Mr. Darker, Both gentlemen
luid known the missing man for a number of years, and are emphatic in their
Statement* that he wai a steady upright,
gentleman, wilh no bad habits, am) con-
sei-uiittly they ate at a loss as lo any
theory for his disappearance.

II. M.Weiilworlb, of Spokane, arrived
iii tbe city last Tuesday after an absence
from Cranbrook of about eighteen
months. As the former editor of The
HiatAi.n, Mr. Wenlworth bad every op-
porluuity to size up lhe possibilities ot
Cranbrook antl tbe distiict of Southeast
Kooler.ay, nud he was very much gratified 011 his return to find lhat his pre-
dictions for the growth nnd prosperity of
Cranbrook had been more than fulfilled

must say thnt I am more pleased than

lli**i'Ai,i> of eighteen months ngo will
probably remember tbe claims I matte
for lhe future of Cranbrook at that lime,
claims which many of the best friends
of tbe towu even deemed extravagant
and optimistic iu the extreme. I find
the lti.gor portion of my predictions
have been verified; those lucking are
merely incidents of the not distant Iut-

Ing from the coach window as the train
rolled in I descried the Hkkm.d office—
then I knew I was iu Craubrook.
When I think it over it brings to mind
any little incidents which, although
less thau two years old, are fairly entitled to be termed reminiscences iu view
of the fact tbat Cranbrook bas really
made ten years' progress in little more
than one.
Eighteen months ago I blew into Cran-
rook in a hack and snowstorm; landing
in front ofthe Crnnbrook holel, I took a
hasty view of the sceuery—it was the
ouly thing within the range of vision
wilh the exception of Mrs. Donahue's
hotel, several blocks east, the frame
work of the Leitch ltros.' store, the hotel
stable, Geo. Ililiiard's blacksmith shop,
aud Thk Hkrai,d office at the
lower end of tbe town. My business
was with Mr. Brown, who bad arrived iu
advance and installed the plant, so I
stepped iuto lhe hotel office to inquire
as lo the whereabouts of that gentleman;
tbere I found Uncle Jim Ryan, AngtiE
Morrison, anil "Old John" proprietor of lhe livery stable; they were
engaged In keeping the stove warm—
their principal occupation for many
dreary weeks, by the way—and indulging iu what many people who were then
living at a point on the Kootenay river
now entering a second historical stage,
were pleased tn term pipe-dreams regard
ing the to-be-in-lhe-future metropolis of
tbe larger part of East Kootenay. That
the " pipe-dreams" were prophetic visions of the ful it re is amply demonstrated
by the Craubrook of today. At that
lime G. II. Miner, the now well-known
hardware man, whs already ou lhe scene
with the fiim intention of establishing a
hardware store in a town consisting of
two hotels, n newspnper and a blacksmith shop! lie had already ordered a
otisiderabie slock of goods from Winui-
peg and had It shipped to Cranbrook
The best illustration of the conditions
of tratisportaion facilities to this point
at tbat time is the fact that, while Mr
Miner hnd been given exceptionally fa-
vornble terms on tbe purchase of his
goods, he wns notified from the house of
the maturity of bis account before a
pound of the goods had been received.
Now, I understand, he bas a branch

it is nearly 100 miles from Spokane to

enormous benefit from the mining industry—in fact it is tbe backbone of
Spokane's prosperity. The same Condi

prosperity increase.

Ottawa, Out., March 24.—The Canadian finance minister, W. S Fielding, bas
just delivered his financial statement in
the house of commons. It showed a
growing revenue, larger busiuess expansion snd a great prosperity all over

revenue to be f44.741.24y and the expenditures I41.903.500, leaving a surplus
of •3*8J7.749' The increase in revenue
was $6\ 186,000.

prison was u healthy brain, open to all
the possibilities of life.
Since the terrible sickness that bad
come to him in infancy, little Tommy
Stringer bud hlin thus among strangers,
Ills mother was dendj his father could
not help him. From bis birthplace in
Washington, Vn., the helpless sufferer
had been removed to 11 hospital In Allegheny. But no institution wanted this
troublesome ohnrge, who would require
the constant -attention of ti teacher. So

It wus durtng the summer of 1800 that
the news of Tommy's snd plight came to
Helen Keller. The sensitive soul of thia
tcn-ycur-old girl wns deeply affected.
She, if no one else, would Bave the poor
Thenceforth Tommy became the burden of Helen's thought and conversation. She talked about him to her
friends; she wrote letter upon letter
asking aid for him." At this time occurred n pathetic incident that was the
means of turning toward the little blind
boy the kindly interest nnd generoiiB
gifts that accomplished his reaeue.
The pet und playmate of Helen when
ahe was nt home wus u beautiful New*
foundlund dog. Through 11 foolish
blunder, thla animal wan shot by
policeman. When the news enme to
Helen, she hnd 110 word of reproach, but
simply said, with beautiful charity: "I

they bad only known whnt 11 dear, good
dog 'Lioness' wus."
The story of her love was published
widely, and from far antl near—even
from across tlie ocean—eame to Helen
offers of money or another dog. Thc
little girl had only one answer to nil
these kind expressions; sbe was grateful, but she did not care for another
dog to take 'lie place of Lioness. Nevertheless, the gift would be accepted, if
the donor so desired, on behalf dt u

In every direction Helen sent this
message, nlways in a specially written
personal letter that was marked by the
etweet simplicity nnd remarkable ability
of the author. For n long time theae
letters averaged eight u day, nnd a
niarvelously versatile nnd eloquent little pleader Helen showed herself. Rhe
also wrote for newspapers articles ad*
dressed to children, as well ns general
appeals—never any two precisely nllkc.
Helen instituted for herself n rigorous
course of self-denial (abstinence from
soda water and other prized luxuries),
that she might save money for her one
great object. The result of sll this
elVort was* the securing of sufficient
funds to insure Tommy nt least two
years of education at the kindergarten

The November M-rt-rora.
The time is drawing near for the return of the great swarm of meteors that
caused the celebrated "slar shower" of
18:i:i, when, for several hours, on the
night of November Ll, tliu heavens were
li]kd with Hying sparks as thick as
fulling snowllakcs, These meteors encounter the earth in its orbit once lu
nbout every 83 yeurs, nnd tbey returned
in 1H60, although the display wus not
us well seen then as lu 1833. Tbey arc
due agnin in 1800, but for several years
before nnd after the arrival of thc principal swarm many meteors are usually
visible, mid one of these forerunning
showers is expected to make its appearance the present year. According
to the opinion of Mr. Denning, the Eng-
lisoh authority on meteors, lhe "falling
stars" should be looked for in this
country just before sunrise on November 14, and a watch should also be kept
for them on the mornings of the 15th

In those days n flagman practlcnlly hnd

It would be hard Io any how fust a

ss It should, there to be purified and impregnated with the life-giving oxygen.
As a result the

It loses its nourishing, vitalizing,

There Is weakness, tiredness,
shortness of breath and palpitation. When
those suffering from thin or watery blood
start taking Milburn's Heart and Nerve
Pills they are assured of a cure. Every
dose acts on tbe heart itself, causing It
to beat strong, stoady and regular.

Soon tho pnlo cheek takes on the rosy
