The regular monthly meel ing nf the
Cranbrook Board ofTrnde was Held lust
Tuesday evening at Miner's old store
rooms. There wns a representative
crowd of citizens present, and considerable business of importance was transacted before the meeting adjourned at
ii o'clock,
A. Leitch, president, was in the chair,
and Secretary McVittie filled his usual
position. The minutes of the last meet-
tag were read mid approved, and then a
communication from the Kossland
Hoard of Trade, relative lo the convention to he held iu that city ou August 3,
was taken up. It was decided to send
two delegates to the convention, and an
appropriaiinn was made to pay tbeir expenses. Messrs. J. R. Costigan, James
Ryan, J. W. H. Smythe and F. K. Simpson were nominated, but Messrs. Kyan
and Simpson withdrew their names aud
Messrs. Costigan and Smythe were
elected unanimously. Messrs. McVittie
and Simpson were named ae substitutes.
Tlie (piestion ofthe subjects to be presented by the Cranhrook delegates were
discussed, and it was derided that the
field was pretty well covered hy the subjects already suggested hy the hoards of
other cities that will send delegates, except that the Kast Kootenay delegates
will probably take up the question of
freight, passengtrand telegraph rates on
the Crows Ntst 1'ass branch, and the
building of roads, trails and bridges in
this district.
It was during the discus1 inn of these
points that an animated debate took
place between ti. M. Medhurst ami A.
Leitch, Sr.i on the question of eastern
freight tariffs as between Craubrook and
Nelson and Kossland. Mr. Medhurst,
representing the C. P, R., claimed there
was no discrimination, while Mr. Leitch
insisted that there was.
The question of fire warden! was next
presented and the secretary was directed
to communicate with the government
agent asking that an election be called
for that purpose. In this connection it
was stated that as the main street was
now supplied wilh water hydrants it was
Lime to take action in the wny of providing means for tire protection, Messrs.
Ryan, Leitch and Simpson were named
as a Committee to consider ways and
means and report at the meeting to be
held Tuesday night.
It wns also moved that nti assessment
nf one dollar lie made on all members
and that a general invitation be extend*
ed to the people of Cranbrook to come
forward without delay and deposit their
money ami have then names enrolled on
the list. This motion was carried without a dissenting vole.

from Mr. Hiillock-Websler. chief of (to*

with the erection ol a govcriuent lockup to cost not (o exceed lloOO. The
secretary was instructed to communicate
with   the   government   agent  and   (he
lands and works department of the government, urging immediate action owing
to the growing need of such an institution, as there was a lnrge number of people gathering in the towu from time to

ment was taken until next Tuesday
At 12 o'clock last Monday the time expired for receiving bids for lhe construe
lion of lhe North Star branch from Cranbiook to Kimberley. There were seven
or tight tenders, and for n couple of days threat anxiety was manifested, Finally
it was understood that the bids as a whole were considered too high, and that no
contracts would be let owing to this fact, but that in all probability the company
would build the line. Several of lhe tenders were returned, and it is staled that
one or two were retained, probably for further consideration.
Mr. \V. W, W byte manager of C. P. R, lines west of Port Williams, is now In
Winnipeg and is expected lo be in Cranbrook Saturday or Sunday. Nothing
further will be done unt i his arrival.
No mailer what action is finally taken by the company, there will be no unnecessary delay in Inaugurating work OU the branch. Il is simply a question of
expeiite nl this time, ami it will be decided either in favor of some of the bidders
or against all, snd the company will commence wink at ouce.

Fort Steele's Words af Praise.
Port Steele Prospeclor.
Craubrook   indulged   in  a good  old
fnslilonei celebration on Dominion day.
It was lhe first celebration ever held at
the lown and was a complete success in
every way. There wus n -/tried program
of sports and other events which were
greatly enjoyed by lhe crowd which was
there. For this day only Port Steele
was nearly deserted, every one who could
get over took the Opportunity of taking
part iu the feslivi'ies. Ferule was
largely represented, while every mining
camp within forty miles sent iu a delegation. The interest centered cirefly iu
the races. There was a big crowd at the
track. The pool booth received a large
amount of attention. There was such an
amount of betting on the side by owners
of different steeds as to cause wonder
where the mniiey had been dug up.
The committee having the affair in
charge are lo be congratulated upon the
success of lhe celebration. Every one
was satisfied and nothing but good words
were heard of the excellent treatment
accorded thc visiting strangers.
Moylc People Satisfied.
ftfoylo Leader,
Cranbrook's Dominion duy celebration was a great success in every particular, and nearly every portion of
South Hast Kootenay was represented.
The Fort Sleele bum! and also Father
Coccola's Indian baud were there discoursing sweet strains of music for the
occasion, The football game between
the Cranbrook and I-'orl Steele learns
was easily won by the former. The
Craubrook team also came out victorious in lhe baseball match with Fernie.
The afternoon sports consisted of horse
races, foot races, putting the shot, tug-
of-A'ur, etc.
The business men of Cruubrook, dis
played grent enterprise iu gelling up
such a creditable progrum and for offering such liberal purses for the various
competitions. When Craubrook goes
ubout a thing il docs it right, aud since
ihe celebration on the first the people

They Will He Al Miner's Mall Friday Evening, July 14,
The Lyceum company, one of lhe
very best playing western Canada, bus
made arrangements to present "The
Man iu Mack," at Miner's hull in Cruubrook on Friday night. It is fortunate
that such a compauy has been Induced
to stop here, aud it was accomplished
only by a number of citizens putting up
a guarantee. After the guarantee is
met, the first fifty dollars goes to a fire
hosejfuod. Therefore the peo, le will
have an opportunity to see a first class
entertainment and assist iu a good cause
at the same lime. Tickets, 75 cents; re-
seivcd seats, f 1.00. There will be a big
rush, for it may be many months before
such a company visits Craubrook again.

Kimberley District is Showing Increased Activity--Cranbrook
a Big Mining Center.
Cranbrook's Mining interest-!.
Whnt is there 10 make Craiibroi k a
large town? is the question asked by
many visitors.
In addition to the population and business resulting fiom the railway works
and offices and from the lwo saw mills,
etc., Cranbrook undoubtedly lias a prosperous future insured by its position as a
distributing point formally ofthe most
promising mining camps iu Kootenay
A large percentage of the business of the
numerous mines ubout Kimberley will
be done here. The supplies for the
many companies operating in the St.
Marys river district will be shipped from
here. Perry creek will undoubtedly be
one of the popular gold camps of the
province before long, and Perry creek
lies at our doors Palmer mountain
shows many promising prospects within
eight mites of the towu aud will certain*
ly contribute very considerably to Ihe
prosperity of Cranbrook. Tlie St. Marys
prairie shows inmiy properties in course
of (development, only eleven or twelve
miles out on llie North Star brunch.
There is tlie Copper Crown group only
live miles east of us, nnd the Union Jack
am] adjoining properties five miles south
on the Moyie nad, besides Innumerable
claims wilhin six or seven miles ou tlie
Palmer Hur road The Nigger creek,
Weaver creek uml Moyie river camps
are also tributary to Cruubrook. Who
can doubt tlie future prosperity of the
lown ns a mining center, or tbat our
business men will supply thousands of
miners in the surrounding countn wiih

employing a force of twenty-two men,

"ear future. United Stntes' Senator
Turner, Col. RIdpath, and Messrs. Latin,
Wolf, Deuslguer and Post, of Spokane,
arrived In Crnnbrook last week, aud left
fnr the proper!) Friday morning. They
irpent two days looking over the prop,
erty, and were well pleased wuh the
progress made. They gave a vote of
thanks to ]■;. C, Smith, the laie manager,
for the successful preliminary work done
on the properly. The directors also decided to put iu a WO tou concentrator.
TheGetn Mining company, the stock
of which is chiefly owned in Spokane,
has struck an ore body on the Gem,
north of the Hamlet, at a depth of ten
feet. It appears to be another Sullivan,
as the ore body shows all over.
Skoakum Chuck Counlr).
Now is the time to prospect thc difficult country drained by the Skookum
Chuck. Hitherto that district ha-*, been
considered out of the market owing to
distance from transportation, but now
lhat the North Slur branch is an assured
factor in the situation, ami that there if
an obvious probability that that branch
will be continued to the Windermere
country, there is uo belter field for the
hardy prospector. The country is heavily timbered and difficult fnr horses, but
tlie small amount of exploring already
done hns resulted in some remarkably
rich finds iu copper ore, and there is
every reason to expect ihat the energetic
will tliis autumn reap due reward in lhat
purl ofthe district.
Perry Creek.
J. H. Taylor has finished the assessment work on the Mastodon group of
claims near the mouth of Perry creek.
We understand that arrangements are
being made to stock this property in
Spokane as soon ns another thousand
dollars has been spent in further development work and the crown patents secured. The coming winter will probably see the company iu possession and
work will be pushed vigorously next
Among ot tiers v orking on Perry creek
John Murphy is representing several
promising claims. The ever active R.
O. Jennings lias four men at work, and
Manager Young, ofthe Inv eta company,
has a force of men preparing for extensive operations on a group of claims near
the "Old Shaft."
The Hoskins group of claims which is
now owned by the Mcintosh syndicate,
bus been surveyed.
The New Mining Compaay.
A meeting of the provisional directors
of the Kootenay and Algoma <!■ Id Mining company, limited, was held in the
offices of McVittie & Hutchison, on Friday evening,   it w 1 decided to begin
Work   before the   first of August on the
Union Jack claim, and a contract will be
nt ouce let for lhe first twenty-five feet.
A half interest in the St. George hns also
been purchased. These two claims
should make a good property, lieing
very advantageously situated and having
good surface showings of ore. Other
propositions are before lhe directors for
consideration mid ii is their intention tn
select two or three properties for development work aud push operations al
once. A block of IOO,000 shares will be
offered fnr sale at once in Cranbrook al
live cents a share, fully paid up nnd non
assessable. Any remaining unsold after
July 30 will be sent to outside brokers,

A new strike of ore has been made on
the North Star in the drift on lhe 200*
foot level. The ore is a good grade of
galena and tlie extent ofthe hotly is undetermined. Ou the same day an ore
body was struck on the Kimberley Consolidated ground, which is the southern
extension of (he Nortli Slur property.

Tbe Si. Eujeae Sold
Moyie Leader: TheGooderham-Hlack-
stock syndicate, perhaps the strongest
mining people operating In the province,
if not In Canada, has purchased a controlling interest in the St. Eugene mine.
The Information was continued by lames
Cronin. who returned from Spokane
Tbmsday, where the big deal was put
through. The deal, so near as can be
learned, is on a basis of 60 per cent of
lhe property for a consideration of lie-
tweeu fcjo,ooo and -$500,000 for the
whole property. This is by far the largest price ever paid for a mining properly
in Bast Kootenay,
The purchasing ol tne controlling interest in tbe St Kugeue bv the Gooder-
bam I! lick stock people will have no
effect on ibe management ofthe property. The work in hand will be carried
on iu about the same manner as planned
ouly, no doubt, on «. somewhat larger
••cale. Work on the concentrator will
go right ahead, nnd a 10-dril] air compressor will 1* installed, and will be in
operation by the time the mill is completed.

property that promise- a permanent
thing when developed.
C. ftf. Keep, of Fort Steele, returned
from Spokane today, where he purchased Mr Wade's interest in the Tontine Tunnel properly, located twelve
miles east of Port Steele. The property
gives a fhowing of $46 in copper on a
general assay, am) $tQA in picked um-
ples, and promises to be a mine.
August* Wfekstrom was in on Tuesday and showed Meiers, McVittie and
Hutchison some fine specimens of lead
and silver ore from a claim near the
head of Lewis creek In the Tracy camp.
He and his partner, Prank Williams, intend pushing work shortly. The mow
has delayed their operations this season
J. C, Nesbltt has gone out to do some
work on the "Hillside" and "Wellington" mineral claims In which he is interested. These claims are iu the vicinity of the Union Jack, which the Koote
nay and Algoma Cold Mining company
hus agreed to dc-velope, and has some
rich surface showings. The great number of ledges dhow ing copper In lhat
vicinity give good grounds for tbe theory
held by many mining men that thete
will be found an immense body of mineral || no great depth, nud lhat all
the ledges will lead lo one large ore deposit.   Should this prove true ihe Union
Jack hill will be a bonn/a,
A Coalition Probable.
The Victoria Globe says it is in a position to announce that arrangements
have almost been perfected fnr a coalition between lhe Opposition and Ihe
Government,  which  arrangement will
obviate tlie necessity of a general elec*
tion. Unless all present plans should
be changed Mr. Martin's successor will
be II. I). HelmckIn, Q. C, senior member of Victoria City. Two other members of the Opposition will be given
portfolios also, but just who these gentlemen will helms not yet been fully decided. Messrs. Semlin aud Cotton will
remain iu the Government It is also
said that the Government has agreed on
a change of policy, which will include
the repeal of tlie eight-hour law.
Dally Mall Service.
The necessary instructions have been
issued by the postal department for a

altower of cornstalks.
"I .should think this was niy business,
and I'll attend to ii in earnest if you
don't look out!" cried John, bristling
with wrath und resolution. "If you hit
one of those hogs ngain I'll hit you!"
Accepting this us u challenge,Tracy
promptly threw a short, stick, which
took the largest of the liogfi behind the
eur and sent ihe whole drove scurrying
tumultously toward their owner's
.lobii snatched up the stick uud hurled
if. buck at, Tracy, striking him on the
ihoulder with force enough to make
him very angry, if it did not hurt him
He flew at John with doubled lists,
ond John, nothing loath, received him
in the same munner.
The. result was thnt Tracy got
whipped, us usual; for tho two boys had
hud Several battlesalrendy^nd, ihough
Tracy invnriuly cume nut second best,
he never shrunk from a fresh encounter
with his stronger foe.
An for .Mm. though he returned
home after tlie battle flushed wilh triumph utut greatly admired liy Tom
Pete, yet he was perfectly nworP thai
hia victory hnd not settled nnylhlug.
It   wan quite certain that Tracy wits
mill determined tn chase He- hogs and
otherwise annoy his enemy whenever
he got a chance.
However, during ihe days that followed neither of ihe boys hud nny lime
to waste in frultlOBH hns! ilit'ies.' They
weresiillli-icntly occupied wilh thchusb

body's attention Ihnl of unring Iheir
juTsons ami property from destruction
by ihe waters of the river, which, nfter
rising rapidly for three days, hod overflowed its bunks nml was fast Inundating the whole region.
Water from other streums poured in
to swell the torrenf, wtille were
drowned nud buildings were swept
away. And still tho flood rose higher
day by day.
People were obliged In innve into ibe
upju-r stories of their houses; then, as
tlie waU'r crept up higher, to take
refuge on the roofs; and, at. lust, they
were forced to flee for their lives to the
high ground, at it distance of ninny
Mr. Hartwell hnd built a sort of flnt-
boat, or scow, us lie called it, which
proved extremely useful to himself and
hia neiglilwrs in this perilous time.
It waa constantly in use, conveying
people io tlie hills, picking up valuable
floating property and taking off the
aheep and cuttle which were huddled
in crowds wherever some bit of high
ground formed a tiny island in tlie very
mtdat of the Hood.
One day, when Mr. Hartwell hud
taken off a number of cattle, ns mnny
aa tlie scow could .safely curry, tie started wiih another man to puddle them to
a place of safety, leaving John and Tom

heavily loaded, the buys volunteered lu
remain behind and watt for his return.
In Uie meantime they amused tht m-
sclvesby flBhing for driftwood and such
floating property us the waters brought
within their reach.
There was a stron-,** current setting
past tie* house, and anything which
happened to drift into this eddy wus
borne along so swiftly that, a qulok
hand wus required to capture* It; but,
the boys had a long rope and a pole with
u hook ut one end, and by means of
th.-se Implements they hauled In quite
olleotion of miscellaneous articles.
Hi! look darl" cried Tom Pete, suddenly. "Uar'ade Pelton boy's doghouee
u-eomiir down de stream. Isyougwlne
to ketch dat?"
"So; ht ii go." an Id John, with »
scowl, -rin not going to sine his old
doghouse foi- him   yee,l will, tool"
And impulsive John renched out his
pole und drew in a gully-pulntod kennel,
whleh he hnd ttt once recognized n« the
habitation of Tracy's favorite hound.
H wus a cumbersome nrlloli* to man*
age, bm. the iwo Imijs contrived to get
ii on the housetop by dint of stout tugging. As John straightened up after
the lift, In- remarked, wiih nn apologetic lu-ceitl;
••It cost Mi*. Pelton three dollars to gel
tlie old thing painted, und 1 haven't got

At ibis moment Tom Pole gave utterance lo mint her excited "Hi!"
"Dnr's a hull raft ob stuff n-eomln'

"Musi In* their ginhousr; ftithersald

John, gu/.ing regretfully nt tin. muss of

"If we do. we'll bust up, too. fo'sho'."
said Tom Pe-te.augely. "Ita'm'i a-gwine
to hit us, dough -it's gwine to pieces."
In fact, the muss nl" Umbers began in
fall apart uml drift away separately,
uml John got ready with his pole to pull
in Ibe boards n« they were sweeping
pust. All ul onee. with tt great start,
he exclaimed:
"Tom Pete, there's somebody hanging
on to that board out yonder!"'
"It's dat ar Pelton boy!" cried Tom
Pete.   "He'll gltdrowiuled.sho'!*'
itefnre Tom Pete spoke, John had become liware that ii wns Tracy Pelton
who clung to that drifting board, uud
liis whole generous heart went out tc
liis helpless fm* in ti moment.
"Tom Pete, you hold onto tho rope,"
he suid, hastily twisting u coil of ii
around his nrm as he spoke. "Weean'i

know bow to swim. I'll have to gc

"Is yon gwlne lo dt-nwn'd yo'self fo'

"Of courso not. I'm going to siivt
"He ain't wufT savin'." declared Tom

John, with flashing eyes. "He's tht

"Dun' tuke you fo' iiutlin'!" suid Ton-
Pete, wiib a scared look.und hastening
to clutch tlio rope, as John impel nous]\
"Hung on to tbnt rope now, und help

And John, witli a shout of encourage

into lhe water, and struck oul. to Tracy's
aid.   He wits u sturdy swimmer, and In
n few moments he cume alongside of the
hoard to which Trncy wan clinging, and
fastened bis rope to It.
Tom Peto begun to hunt iu tho rope
with great zcnl. while John, putting one
unit under Tracy's shoulder, und swimming wit.b tho other, aided iu propelling
liim to tho housetop, where lhey quickly drew Jiini up, wet, weak uud shivering, but l.y no means devoid of the
journal' uud "pluck" whleh John so
much ndmlrod.
"John Hurl well, you're a good fellow,"
snid he. el lisping John's huml, with n.

Tracy, "I thoughl I should be safo

It has been objected thut the modern

tlons, rather than to work with his
hands. The fm-t is true in the main,
but it la capable of explanation through
historic cause*.    It is almost certain
that we owe agriculture to the Semites
aud it is certain that the Jews wore In
ancient times un agricultural people.
Their exclusion from so many urts in
western Europe, their confinement for
ceiiturnes to a few calling?) und tn narrow anus, will sufficiently account for
their present speculative und some-
whal mercenary Instincts.
It would ho distinct -guln to them,
morally uud socially, could a goodly pro-
portlou of their race lie induced to resume, under happy conditions, those
healthy and primary arts of life in
which they engaged before the overflow
of thoir ancient commonwealth. One
more lund reclaimed front Turkish poverty nud desolation would be n gain for
lhe Jews and for the entire world. It is
certain that tin. Tur), will do nothing
with Palestine] it seems equally certain
that European rivalries will prevent
any one Europeun country from colonizing it; why mny not the true solution
be found iu .leiy'sh colonizutIon? The
idea is attractive und It seems feasible.

Tiie swelling which follows from a
blow is nature'* effect to protect the
part from further injury und to keep It
at rest while repair is going on. Whut
actually takes place ut the .seal of injury is not eveu now quite understood.
The injury to the smaller blood vessels
interferes with the (low of blood
through them and the while corpuscles,
with purt of the serum, the watering
part of the blood, esciipcs into the surrounding tissues, At the siime time the
blood vessels in the neighborhood dilate
und the increased flow of blood with the
thoroughfare obstructed increases the
swelling, it is probable thut the whlto
corpuscles of the blood puss into the
tissues to assist in the repair, as bees
or nuts assemble at an injury to their
storehouse, but with the difference that
the substance of the corpuscles te probably  verted into lhe tissue nf repair.
Prom one point of view the human body
is only nne gigantic colony of Individuals, nml ihu swelling thai follows

today is entitled to 50 days' labor from

The Extreme In Advertising,
An eastern Canadian cigar firm tins issued a cut for its advertisements that is
about as sncreHgioufl a tiling that lias
come out in late years. The picture is
entitled 'A New Joy in Paradise," and
shows Kt. Peter reclining in nu easy
chair, his halo over his head keys hanging by his side, while he is smoking a
cigar with evident relish. There te a
merry twinkle in his eye and a complacent smile on his li]-s. A short distance
in the background is a bar with an angel
mi ditty, while another angel, wilh eyeglass and cane held at dude angle, is
purchasing one of the cigars. Il Is generally conceded that lhey smoke in
hades, but this is the first time the idea
has been advanced that they indulged in
that habit in the Eternal city, Tbe next
thing some brewery will gel out a picture
wilh the Almighty using one of the kegs
for a throne and its contents for the
wine of life.
