Prof. Odium Writes a Readable Utter
to the Vancouver World.
Says Wonderful Prosperity Is in Store
for This District.
The following interesting nrticle is
from the pen uf Profi Iv Oillutii:
Cranhrook, in tilt* centte -uf the Fort
Steele- mining division, is tin the Crows
Nest branch of the Canadian Pacific
railway, ami ia one of the many scores
of towns called into existence by that
progressive ami enterprising corporation.
It is east of Nelson 138 miles, and 168
west of Fort Macleod, on the prairies.
In long. 115 deg. 30 min. west, and lat.
49 deg. 30 min. north, with an altitude
of nearly 3000 feet, it is one of the most
healthful and beautiful spots on the continent. Being close to the "dry belt,"
irrigation ia at times required to iusure
good crops.
The country around Cranbrook Is an
ideal district for cattle ranching, as ia
the case all along the west slope of the
Rockies from the Boundary Hue a long
distance nortli. Laud fit for farming,
gardening and ranching can be had at
prices fiom $1.00 to $5.00, both from the
government and from one or more corporations- not $100 to 1500, as a typographic error made me write concerning
the value of Fort Steele farm Ian 'a. I
might here lay emphasis on the fact that
all through British Columbia, even down
in the lower Fraser valley, good lands
can be purchased at figures from $4,011
per acre up.
Cranbrook la more than a C. P. R.
town, more than a farming aud ranching
centre, more than a place of beauty aud
health, more than a fairly good lumbering headquarters; it is a first-rale mining
town. There nre now three important
ore producers close by and tributary lo
the place. In fact, on of the largest
producing mines on the continent is
close to Craubrook. Iu addition there
are other very promising properties near
At times one begins to wonder what
will be done with all the mineral ofthe
world wheu he sees the vast, the unbounded deposits iu Blltlsh Columbia
alone. In ten years' lime from now the
local trade along the Canadian Pacific
railway from Crows Nest Pass by Crnnbrook, Nelson, Robsou and Revelstoke
will be ns heavy as in many of the bust
parts ol" old Ontario.
And further, while on Ibis subject, I
may add that in io years' lime the present main line ol the C. P. R. from Calgary to Vancouver will have a large
local trade owing to the Immense mineral wealth being developed between these
two points. Hope, Yale, Lytton, Ashcroft, Kamloops, Revelstoke, Golden,
Field and Anthracite nre al! surrounded
by rich aud varied mineral deposits.
What has been done in the last six or
■even years in Kust and West Kootenay
will be doubled or trebled in the next
ilecade between tbe Rockies and the
How about our own city of Vancouver
iu view of all tbis early coming wealth,
prngreis and population * In that time
nut population will add from 20,000 to
30,000 people, if not more. Factories
will increase, values will advance, enterprises will multiply, electric advancements will keep pace with the rest, and
four people are true to themselves, in
their homes, shops, business and in
their lives, we shall indeed be a happy
community. Let us all in Craubrook,
Vancouver or elsewhere, bear in mind
tbat onl) one thing can lift ns up per-
uianenlly, aud tbat is righteousness—
right acting or right living. And I believe that this is the set purpose of moat
of our citizens.
Manager  Wolfe   Hih Gone Back   Rasl   tor
That Purpose.
Manager Wolfe left this week for Toronto and Montreal lo arrange for the
construction of a rullway liue from the
North .Star branch to the mine. It ia estimated that the road would cost Utile
if any more than a tramway, and be a
grr.tr saving in expense.
MINES an:* mining,
Work Su sanded,
John Mean, one of the best known
prospectors operating nut of this city,
returned yesterday from Bast Ki.oteuay,
where he has spent the simmer on n
couple of claims which are Showing "I1
well. The claims are Incited between
Fort Sleele and Winlermerc on Skoo-
kumchuck cieek, a tributary of the Kooleiiay river. The section has been prospected superficially, and a number of
locations staked, but comparatively little work has beeu done. Mr. Mean's
lanns being further advanced than any
of the others. II ill-*-** spur line to Windermere along tbe east bank of the
Kootenay ever goes through, as is confidently predicted, 'lie value of claims
in this section will be materially enhanced, Mean has two properties, the
11 cm Mask and tlie Rosslaud, tbe latter
being so named because of the resemblance between its surface showings nnd
those characteristic of the Rossland
camp. The ore is a parite or magnetic
iron, and assays from surface specimens
give f-5 in gold and two per cent copper.
The lead is four feet wide. It has been
traced by three open cuts ten feet in
depth, hut no assays have been made
below the surface. The Iron Mask has
a thirty foot tunnel, and a depth of
tweuty feet. The lead is four feet wide
and carries copper pyrites assaying $3 in
gold and eight per cent copper. Work
has beeu suspended in the section for
the winter.—Nelson Miner.
A Valuable Mineral.
Nelson, Oct. 14.—The Venus Oold
Mining compauy, which is operating thc
Venus mine on Morning mountain,
about three miles from here, has just
discovered that the mine contains n
great wealth ofthe mental uranium, the
market price of which is J6 per pound.
About a week ago a sample of the ore
from the property was sent to Toronto
to be tested for the purpose of determining the best method ol treatment, as a
new mill ia to be placed on the property.
Oner I the supposed objectional features
of the ore for treatment hy the van iters
waa the quantity of yellow sand thought
to contalu carbonates of lead of a specific
gravity heavier than the black sand
which carries the gold values. It was
difficult to Bepnrale the two. The quantitative analysis mnde by experts shows
that the yellow sands are probably the
most valuable part of the ore. as they
contain crystals of uranium, one uf the
rare metals.
Following is the analysis as received:
Silica, 6H.1H percent,
Iron anil alumina, 30.801 per cent.
Uranium, 0.31 per cent.
Lime, n trace.
Magnesia, a trace.
Sulphur, 0,53 percent.
Total, 99 Ku pei cent.
The world's mpply of uranium is very
limited, coming chiefly from Germany
and a few places in the United Slates.
This is il is understood, the first discovery of the rare metal in British Columbia.

is au excellent showing of galena. In
the new tunnel on tbe creek there is a
good showing of copper and galena, this
tunnel is now tu 25 feet. Work will be
pushed during the winter. Nearly 1200
feet of work haa been done on thia property. The claims are at present under
bond to un English corporation.
Mining Notes.
Tate and Hll New Safe.
W.F.Tate, the jeweler, has placed a
new safe in his establishment that is fue
proof and burglar proof. It was necessary to enlarge the door of the store to
get the safe in the building, but now that
it Is in place, Mr. Tate Is the happieat
man in town. It Ib said, hut The Herald
cannot vouch for tbe truthfulness of the
rumor, that last Saturday night after he
had packed all the valuables of the place
iu the uew repository, he was so pleased
with the idea of safety tbat be took off
his coat and hat aud placed these articles of wearing apparel ln with the
jewelry and went home hare-headed and
in his shirt sleeves. It is also said tbat
he attended a meeting of one of the
lodges of which he is a member, and
when asked for the password started to
give the combination of the safe. Of
course, all of this may not be true, bul
aB a purveyor of news The Herald feels
like giving the' matter publicity.

was one of the most successful affairs
of the klud ever given in this district.
No expense or labor had beeu spared In

present had a moat enjoyable time. The
atteudauce waa large, the music excellent, the refreshments appetizing In tbe
extreme, leaving absolutely nothing to
add to the unqualified success of tbe occasion. Those in charge of the affair
have set a pace that will cause committees of dances in Kimberley in the
future lo hustle lu maintain the standard,

patrol of five troopers of Slratheona'i-*
Horse, under Sergeant Brothers, met
death. It appears that they were suddenly surrounded hy a strong force of

was exchanged at a short range until
every man in the party was riddled wilh

Minneapolis, Minn, Oct, 11.—A
special to the Times from Victoria, Ii.
C , says: Negotiations between city officials and officials of the Great Northern have about reached a head to connect tbe Hill system with Victoria and
to extend the line to the west coast of
Vancouver island, thus giving freight
steamers two days advantage over all
other lines in the Oriental trade. A
conference was held today with the
mayor and railroad committee of the
city council by ti. V. Bodwell, Hill's solicitor here. Tbe scheme ia, briefly to
extend the Great Northern from tbe
present Canadian terminal at New Westminister to Stopson or Boundary bay,
thence across by ferry to Sidney, employing the Victoria St Sydney railroad
for the remainder of the distance to Victoria. Should Hill cross the island
the Canadian Pacific roa 1 pro! -
ably will be compelled to do so to nu-. t
the big advantage given him iu the
Oriental trade.
J.  Stadtiander  Sentenced for  Ballot   Box
Referring to the case from South Kast
Kootenay in which J. Stadtiander was
charged with the stealing a ballot box.
from the reluming officer laat June, the
Nelson Tribune says: He was not represented by counsel. Afler hearing the
evidence the jury returned a verdict of
guilty, and the prisoner was sentenced
t) is months'imprisonment. After learning of lhe verdict Stadtiander maintained
his innocence.
About 1 o'clock this morning, while a
freight train in charge of Conductor
Pellet, was backing up to the station,
preparatory to starting out, the caboose
and two cbib ran over the prostrate
form of a man asleep across the track.
It was impossible to see anything of the
man and the first was known ofthe accident was the horrible crunching ofthe
wheels over human flesh and bones.
The train was stopped as soon as oossi-
ble and the mutilated individual taken
out and placed in a litter and carried to
lhe Station, Both tegs were cat off, one
jusi above and the other just below tbe
knee. The shock rendered him uncoil*
c'ous, Dr, King was called and la er
fie victim was taken to the hospital.
it is said that his name was Jacobson,
and that at one lime he had worked at
lhe Craubrook Lumber Company's mill.
It is supposed that he had probably
bi-en drinking and in walking along the
track concluded to take a sleep. No
blame is attached tu any one for tbe accident.       	
The Cranbrook   School Board   Allows SIM
For Expenses.
Secretary Hutchison, of the school
board, received a check of 100 dollars
from the government last week to defray the incidental expenses ofthe school
for a year. Sucll an allowance in a lown
the size of Cranbrook, with the absolute
aud necessary expenses of four or five
times that amount, is ridiculous in tbe
extreme. The sum off loo is insufficient
to meet the expense of the janitor hire,
to say nothing ofthe fuel aud numerous olher items. The needs or Cranbrook schools should be met by the
government, This thing of the citizens
being compelled lo contribute from their
own pockets to keep the school up tu a
proper standard is au imposition aud a
shame. Any government should zealously guard Ihe school interests, for
good schools are the foundation rock of
civilization. Good teachers and proper
facililes bespeak progress, while poor
teachers and inadequate facilities are .1
sad commentary ou the civilizing influences ol the age.
Moyie la Oae   of  the   Most  Presperoaa  la
British Columbia.
The Herald editor visited Movie last
Monday aud while there was moil favorably impressed by the wonderful Improvement that has taken place in that
lown during the past six mouths. Tbe
mines have developed to a stage where
permanency is made evident on every
hand. A large number of Bubstautial
busiuess houses have beeu erected, and
many handaome cottages built, which
demonstrates the fact that the number
of families have materially increased.
The payroll for last month on the St.
Kugene consolidated mines amounted
to over f-V"** and the entire payroll of
the towu is estimated at (30,000. The
wages paid are good and such a payioll
means the circulation of a large amount
of money each week in the various
avenues of trade. This is made manifest by the well kept stores and large
stocks. Movie is a successful camp, and
the residents of that town can congratulate themselves on the fact, that each
year will bring increased prosperity to
the town. The development of the
mines at Moyie and Kimberley demonstrates the fact that South East Kootenay ia one of the richest mineral districts in Britisb Columbia, and that tbe
future is bound to be brighter than the
most sanguine dared to hope for two
years ago.

to attend.
It Will Be Ready Ior Occapsncy la a Few
More Weeks.
The St. Eugene hospital of this town,
begun last June, is rapidly approaching
completion, and it is expected that
within six weeks the personal of the
Mission hospital will be installed aud
ready lo receive patients of whom upward of fifty can convieutly be accommodated.
The sttucture is large and commodious and equipped with all the modern
conveniences so conducive to tbe comfort of tbe sirk. Tbe delightful location
ol the building and lhe spacious grounds
surrounding it, the generous donation
of Col. Itaker, will contribute in no
small degree to lhe enjoyment of convalescents.
Tbe hospital is under tlle careful
management of the Sisters of Charity, who were trained in IheSt. Vincents
hospital, which is second to none on the
Pacific coast. The Sisters make it a
point lo do all in tbeir power to pro
cure tbe wellbeing of all those under
their care to whose service they make it
a pleasure to devote tbeir lives.
Praises the Hospital.
Editor The Herald:
Allow me through the columns of your
paper lo express my heartfelt gratitude
to the Sisters of St. Kugene hospital for
their patience and loving care to me during my recent stay at that institution. I
cannot allow the opportunity to pass
without expressing my admiration for
tlie hospital and the system of care that
prevails there, and would say tbat every
mau in this community should contribute
his little mite to maintaining that able
institution, for it deserves support.

The supper was a mosl enjoyable affair, and lhe visitors all expiessed themselves as being most happily impressed
with Cranbrook a» a lown and her people as the original good things.
Re*. Fortune libe*  Pointers   Oo   Practical
Rev. Fortune of the Presbyterian
church, preached a very able sermon
last Sunday evaning. The Herald
editor does uot hear as many sermons
preached as some people, but he appreciates a good talk on any subject,
whether it be religion, po i ici, mules
or money. In the trend of his discourse
Sunday evening, tbe reveerud gentleman struck straight from the shoulder
on one question in which The Herald is
always interested. Speaking of the in-
fluencea exerted by each and every individual in bis own particular sphere,
Rev. Fortune asserted that Christian
people who had come west to better
their condition were not doing their
duty as Christians in abetting and aiding
souless corporations in thc- east by sending back for goods manufactured by people working for starvation wages. The
labor is worthy of iu hire, aud every
one was entitled to a good day's wage
for a good day's work, declared Hev.
Fortune, and sending money back to encourage and maintain a cheap system of
tabor was not displaying a true Christian spirit, or a proper recognition of
the advantages gamed by the higher
wage received in the west.
The Herald agrees with Ibegentlemao
emphatically and absolutely. Cheap
labor means cheap men. and cheap men
means dishonesty, loss of manhood and
self respect. There are men, women and
children in the eastern States and east-
reu Canada who are working their lives
out by laborb ui toil, simply to secure
enough for a livlinood, and the fruits of
their labor go to increase the already
stupendous incomes of the powerfully
rich. If the teachings of Christianity
are the prophesies of the inspired, adieu
the final Judgment day comes there will
be a lot of purple and linen chaps who
will get left on the first quarter in the
camel and needle-eye couteits.
Ullpln Branching Out.
O. II Gilpin is arranging to open up
a branch store iu Moyie. He will 01-
cupy the new business block that is being erected by S. P. Morley, and wilt
put in a large stock of general merchandise. Mr, Gilpiu's long experience tu
this country will enable him to give to
the people of Moyie a class of goods thai
will meet with their approval and secure
his portion of the trade.
Taking His Vacation.
Alex Moffat left on the train yesterday
afternoon for Lelhbridge where.be will
spend a week or ten days chicken shooting, liver since we have known Mr.
Moflat he has gone regularly back and
forth to the office of theCranbrook Lumber company, figuring day afler day on
hills of lumber, posting accounts and always ready witb a word or deed for anything that would promote the interests
of Cranbrook. He has been out of town
during the past two years, but always on
business. This time he left business behind him, and proposes to fully enjoy hia

As Rockefeller has an income estimated

one of the vilest monopolies that ever
disgraced the commercial world, this
statement sounds more like blasphemy

A store in One Hundred und Twenty-
lii'ili street with » laudable desire to satisfy customers hud tlie following stga
painted und hung in severs! conspicuous
places: "Mouey refunded, or you tuu exchange fur anything lu the store."
The regular customers nodded approv-
lugly when they saw this, us the rule of
lhe house had been previously that uo
goods eould be exchanged.
The first duy the Blgus were up several
sums of money were rctuuded, When tho
store opened the next morulng tho signs
were none, uud u literary man wus engaged to write one less ambiguous.  There
wns u reason for this. Late in the afternoon of the duy the sinus were used a
youug man from down town bought u

nud n few minutes afterward approached
u floorwalker und said thut they were un*
''Very well," suid the Hoorwnlker affably, "I'o you wish your money back?"
"No," replied tho purchuaor, "1 believe

floorwalker, "Will you Iinv mther pair
of suspenders."
"I think mil; I'll jn.t look around und
let you know when 1 iiml something that
suits me."
lu less than hulf uu hour the down
town young man called the floorwalker
In u counter nnd snid, "Tlint's whut 1

he   p.ilnletl   in   un   expensive   toilet    let

"Hut you're Joking," snid the Hoorwnlker.  "They nre worth 20 pairs nf suspend-
"I can't help that," replied tho othor.
"I'm Inking yon nt your word. There's
your 6lgn, 'Money refunded, or ynu enn
exchange fm* anything in the store.' It's
optional with me, uml I wish to exchange
for 'anything iu the stoic' This is the
'anything' that suits mc."
They wrnugtcd for awhile, and the
proprietor was culled. He rend the sign
Bcvcrnl times, nud then snid, "You arc a
very bright yonng man. It's on us this
time." Turning to tho floorwalker ho
suid, "Make the exchange as he desires

Men Who Onn Dcantlfal Genu Only
to Admire Them ln Private.
"Because some men display no Jewelry
ou their persons It does not signify thut
they do not cure for such things," suld a
lending New York jeweler to a writer a
duy or two ago. "Indeed, there are plenty of men who nre as passionately fond
of jewels os nny woman who ever lived,
but they seem to regard the feeliog as n
weakness which they nre half ashamed
of. Somo men will own right up, but
they dou't like to display their treasures,
because It Is not considered good taste to
wear much jewelry.
"I know of linlf n dozen business mop
and professional men who do not wear sn
much as a watch chain, yet they carry
nbout tn their trousers pockets thousands
of dollars' worth of unset jewels. This is
n little out of tho ordinary, but It is a
fuet nevertheless, The Into Henry Wnrd
Beeeher, for Instance, used to curry In his
pockets a number of beautiful diamonds
and other precious stones, which ho would
sometimes tuke out iu his hand nml gaze
nt in admiration for severnl minutes nt n
time. He explained his hnhit by saying
that there wus something so pure nnd
beautiful uhout the gems tbnt they delighted and fascinated him. He used to
Bay that It wns one of the traits of our
fur back barbarian origin—thc lunate
fondness for bright gems,

which wns exhumed from a tomb nt Ca-
pura in 1858, The official catalogue
snys: "The leg is made with pieces of
thin bronze fastened by bronze nails to a
wooden core. Two iron bars, having
holes in their free cuds, are attached to
the upper extremity of thc bronze. A
iltindrllnteral piece nf Iron fuund nenr tbe

Slnco the fifteenth century artificial
limb milking has beeu a regular Industry
in nearly ull countries,
Not only many doctors, but nearly all
the laity, have a notion that tho amputation nf a limb shortens the life of the Individual, ami nlso the greater the quantity of the limb cut olT the greater tho
nhrldgmcut of life. Hut statistics contradict that theory flatly. Uy careful comparison for half n century it is ascertained that cutting off limbs—uot all tho
limbs, of course—does not shorten life at
ull. Of the patrons of nn artificial limb
factory less thnn Ho per cent die during
a term uf over -.0 years, and nearly every one of thom died from accident or
old age, nml not one died ns the direct result nf being short a leg or nu arm. It Is
claimed Hint there is no record of any
une, or but very few nt least, who died
of pnlinonury or cardiac discuses who
wore un artificial limb, except where tho
disease wus contracted before tho limb
wus utnpututcd. However, the amputation of limbs is not recommended by pro-
thctlciuiis us a preventive of 11111*4 and
he-art troubles.
Perhaps it ban never occurred to many
(hat Ihe great body of wearers of artificial limbs ure poor people—that is, poor
people in contradistinction tu the rich,
It Is very rare that a wealthy person is
seen with un urlilieinl limb, um) the rea-
sun Is clear enough. It is the mnn who

general store like Gilpin's are:
You can buy cheaper. We don't have
to make our living out of any oue line,
but have our expeuses (which are not so
large as specialty stores) divided over ■
number of staple lines.

supply all you wants in one place—uot
half a dozen little bills outstanding.
