She Had Been His Mistress and
They Quarrelled and Separated to Meet in Death.
A little over « year bro a quiet flirtation took place on the banks <jf Lake
Calhoun, near Minneapolis, between the
owner ol'a pleasure launch and the wife
of a small merchant. Tbe woman was
beautiful and attractive, the man intelligent and prepossessing. Last Tuesday
afternoon the story came to a sudden
and terrible termination in the parlor of
Miss Nettie McDowell'tthouse of prostitution in this city. The man committed
murder aud then suicide, and fell near
his helpless victim, the life blood of
both turning the carpet to a crimson
hue. The girl cried, "Don't, Harry, for
God'a sake, don't," but three reports
followed and she fell. A moment before
she had smiled at ber murderer, when
she fell she was writing to another,
while in her bosom she had letters from
one who was her husband, now confined
in the Ohio reformatory at Mansfield.
The fatal beauty of Mrs. Lillian Shot-
well wrought her ruin, and the mad infatuation of Harry Brandt drove bim to
the desperate deed.
The tragedy was a shock to the community and created for a time intense
excitement. Harry Brandt Imd been
living with the woman, but last Thursday they quarreled, and selling their
household good?, he left Saturday morning for Nelson. Tuesday he returned, and
when he learned tbat his assumed wife
had gone to a house of piostituliou to
live, be seemed badly overcome. About
i o'clock he went to Dickinson's barber
shop, in the Cranbrook hotel, and got
shaved, and then went direct to the
house where the woman was living. He
asked for her, and the girl told the mistress of the house not to let him in her
room, but that she would see bim in the
parlor. They sat there and conversed
In a pleasant and genial manner for several minutes, in company with two other inmates of the bouse, indulged in a
bottle of beer, but at no time were there
any words or indications of trouble.
Finally Miss Lily, as the unfortunate girl
was railed, asked for writing paper, and
Miss McDowell left the room lo get it,
Miss Cora Salisbury following ber. Returning with the paper, Miss McDowell
then left the two alone, Mr. C. Maggs
and Mr. E. Hughes, of the B. C. Furniture company, were in the room across
the hall attending to tbe laying of new
carpets, while the inmates of tbe house
were moving about, all unconscious of
the tragedy of words tbat were being enacted so near tbem, and never dreaming
of tbe tragedy of death that was to follow so soou.
Then came the pleading cry for mercy,
tike the wail of a lost soul, three reports
and silence. Those in the other rooms
rushed into the hall terrorized with fear
aud apprehension. The door of tbe
room was slowly opened and Brandt
walked into tbe hall, holding a revolver
in his left baud toward the people standing ihere. Miss McDowell cried 'Don't
shoot, Harry!" and then all of them
hurried to the rear, each prompted by
the thought ofpersoual safety. Brandt'
turned once more and looked back upon
the results of bis horrible work, and
theu opened the front door and stepped
onto the verandah, Here he paused and
throwing open his revolver, extracted
three of the empty shells, placed one or
two more cartridges in tbe cylinder and
walked back into the parlor, closing the
door. For a few seconds he stood bending over the form of the one he had so
blindly loved, and then stepping back,
placed the muzzle of thc revolver against
the left side of his head just under tbe
rim of his hat, and holding it iu place
with bis right ha.nl to make sure of the
job, pulled tbe trigger and went to meet
his God, with the two awful crimes burdening his soul.
When Mr, Magus rushed from the
house he hu r d ti th He ad offic* a: d
informed F. iv. Simpson of what- bad
taken place. They both returned to the
house as quickly as possible, and when
tbey entered the room an awful scene
was presented. The girl bad fallen
partially over, the body being slightly
twisted and her head drooping forward
ou her breast, The light dress she wore
was covered with spots, while her face
wai rendered unrecognizable by the
blood flowing from two bullet wounds,
ou in her right temple and the other
just over the right ear. The man had
stood nearly in the center of the room
when he fired tbe last shot at himself
and there were splashes of blood and
portions of brain matter on the upholstered chair at his fret. He had fallen
with hu head agaiuat the wall, near tbe
door where be entered, and was bleeding
profusely, and still clasping tbe revolver
in, hit left hand. When the two men
entered the room there Here slight
signs of life on the part of tbe girl, aud
the man soon began to breathe heavily.
The girl, however, died almost immediately after they entered. Messengers
were lent for doctors, Coronor Moffat
and Constable Morris, and as the news
spread a great crowd gathered about the
premises, Dr. Green arrived first, and
did everything possible to save the man,
being assisted later by Dr. King, but he
ixpired about « 'clo<*k tha! night at the
police station.v,r*,<-*-'* hi* hail Been taken.
The remains ol roth of tbem were taken to tlie undertaking' rooms ol the B,

tier Husband In Jail.
The woman, who had ufsuuied the
name of Brandt h'-re, formerly lived in
Minneapolis, and her huibnud'l name
was Shot well or Atwood. About a year
ago he was convicted of forgery in Ohio
and sentenced to the state penitentiary
for io months. She had in lier possession letters from hi*n, and the words of
love and confidence, and expressing the
hope that she would remain well ami
true to hlm. She had known Brandt,
while at Lake Calhoun, and the flirtation indulged in at that time resulted in
her coming out to Fernie to join
bim, where be was playing a piano in
a house of prostitution. Later tbey
came to Cranbrook, and lived he.e us
man and wife, be continuing his work as
a musician. After their quarrel, which
was due to jealousy aroused by his suspicions that sbe was receiving attentions
from other parties, be went to Nelson.
There he was very despondent, and once
said to a friend that be had a notion
to go to Cranbrook and take a shot at
her and himself. Later he seemed lo be
in better spirits, but he bad intimated to
one or two persons tbat he might get
even wilh tbe man who had caused the
trouble, and it is evident that he started
out of the house for that purpose, and
then changed his mind, went back nnd
took his own life. It is said that he was
a steamboat engineer and a man of intelligence and refinement. Hard luck
had drawn him west, and having natural musical ability, he drifted into llie
work of playing the piano at the ho ises.
Word was sent to friends of both parties, and the remains were interred in
the local cemetery. The man bad
euough money in his possession to defray the expense of burial, and the inmates of the bouses looked after the
burial ofthe girl.

Last Sunday at 5:15 pm., the first
train under the uew passenger service arrived in Cranbrook from the east
promptly on time. A large crowd bad
gathered at the depot, nnd it was with
considerable intere4*' that they watched
the first regular passenger that bad run
over tbe line, come rushing into tbe
yards. The schedule provides for a stop
of ten minutes for changing engines.
After the couplings were made, the conductor cried "all aboard." and away
dashed tbe train for Kootenay Landing,
to make connections with the steamer
for Nelson and all points west. A representative of The Herald made the trip
to the Lauding, returning the next
morning, and be was greatly surprised
to flud the roadbed in such an excellent
condition condition, mid a traveler from
the east stated that there were many old
roads th t 'were rougher than this one.
Splendid time was made, and at every
station the arrival was according to tbe
The new service is going to prove a
great boon to this section of the country,
as it will bring through here all tourist
travel, either east or west, and a vast
amount of regular travel, as people generally will be anxious to see the Kootetiays. To Cranbrook, it will mean au increase in business in every way, as tbis
town is the natural point for all people
to stop who wish to visit any part of
South Bast Kootenay or the Windermere district. And, again, the people
living west of Cranbrook can come here
and return home the same day, giving
ample time for the transaction of business.
This service is a good thing iu every
way aud uow it possible to travel with as
much ease and luxury on lhe Crows Nest
Pass road, as it is on any part ofthe
main line. Tbere is no danger, und the
scenery is wild, wierd and magnificent

The  North  Star  Branch  Will   Be  Built
From This Town at Once.
It Makes Cranbrook the Great Distribute
ing and Commercial Center.
Mines, Railroads and Increasing Trade Gives Her the Title of
thc Metropolis of South East Kootenay, Which is
Merited and Will Be Permanent.
There Is no longer any doubt about the
building ofthe North Star branch, ami
what is mote, it will be built from Craubrook. This is authentic. Work will
be inaugurated within two or three
weeks ■ nd pushed vigorously forward to
completion. The local authorities received word from the east a few days
ago, directing them to have their plans
ready, as operations would lie commenced at ouce, and there are several
contractors ou their way here to bid 011
the work.
The settlement of this question is good
news for lhe people of Cranbrook and
Kimberley in particular, and the whole
district in general. Although there lias
been much said about this branch, aud
many opinions expressed one way or another, as to the time it vould be built
and the point it would start from, Tbe
Herald has been steadfast in its declaration that the line would be built, and
furthermore that it would be built from
Cranhrook. There was every reason ior
believing this, and no reason for believing otherwise. The only surveys that
had ever been made were made from
Cranbrook, or points within very short
distances of Cranbrook, aud the only
Hue located was lhe line located
from Cranbrook. Prejudiced persons,
who had reasons for misrepresenting the
true situution, exerted themselves to Impress people to the contrary, but tbe
facts remained nevertheless. Then
again, a line from Cranbrook to Kimberly iB much shorter than by any other
route named, and distance will count in
the construction of mountain railroads.
Now, there is no longer any reason for
argument.    The matter has been defi-
I nilely settled nnd the line will branch
off from the main line just north of lhe
townsite limit and about one mile from
the depot, and take the route located by
Engineer Richardson last fall, which
will make it about seventeen miles from
Craubrook to Kimberly.
The building of this line will prove a
great benefit to Crnnbrook. not only
during the time of construction with
this towu as the general supply point,
hut in lhe future. It places the seal ot
approval of the C. P, R, on Craubrook as
the distributing point for thc district.
nud means that the work fur the Crow's
Nest line will be done here. That, of
course, means increased pay rolls ami
constant growing prosperity for the people of this town. It also clinches the
proposition that Cranbrook is now and
will continue to be the distributing point
for all of South East Kootenay. Her location has always been an unanswerable
argument, aud every move that is made
goes to show that natural conditions are
bound to control in the building of im
portaut towns. Natural conditions have
made Nelson, they have made Vancouver, they have made Spokane, aud they
are contributing rapidly to the growth
and prosperity of Cranbrook.
There is another feature to be considered in tbe building of this branch that
is of vast importance to this whole district. It will mean a more rapid development of the North Star, Sullivan
Group, Stem Winder, and many other
rich properties iu that district, tbe re
suits of which will emphasize stronger
than ever the wonderful mineral re
sources of South East Kootenay, and do
much Jto turn capital this way for in
Everything Tends to Show Tail tbe Celebration Will be 1 Success.
The detail arrangements for the Dominion Day celebration are being carried
out in a most excellent manner. The
different committees have performed
their duties well and everything is now
in readiness for a grand celebration of
South East Kooteuay's prosperity,
presetit aud future. Great crow-Is will
be here from the east and tbe west, and
the people of Moyie, Fort Steele and
Fernie will be out in force. A special train has been secured for Fernie,
with a rate of $2.00 for the round trip.
The train will leave Fernie at 7 o'clock
in the morning, and Cranbrook at 7:30
in Ibe evening, thus giving a long day in
Cranhrook, ami yet returning in lime to
permit the ladies and children to be
home at a most seasonable hour.
Mr. John Hutchison, who is clerk of
the course, says that he hns received a
number ol entries already for the different events and that he expects to see
every card filled.
The football and baseball matches
prom'se to be ink-resting contests, and
beautiful medals will be presented to the
individual winners. It is also quite
probable that tbere will be a gun club

enn be mnde.
Taken altogether, the Hut*of snort will
be a good one and every one will thoroughly enjoy tbe day, and it looks now
as if all of South East Kootenay will be

Fire il the Mill.
Last Friday about 2 p. 111. a spark from
the smoke stack of the Cranbrook Lumber company's mill ignited some saw
dust under the store house, and in a few
minutes the building was in flames. The
house was filled witli flour, oatmeal, bay
and oats, and as there was several hundred loaded gun shells and a few dynamite sticks, there was considerable hesitation about rushing to the rescue. After
these were exploded quitea good deal of
the property was saved, Tbe loss, now
ever, will amount to J600 or $700, 011

Moyie Leader: Last Monday, the day
the new ei^ht hour law went into effect,
most of the miners employed at the St.
Eugene mine rolled their blankets and
marched down the hill, refusing to have
their wages cut from ft, 50 to $3 per day.
tjuite a number of the men, however,
are'still employed at the mine, but are
working on the outside whete the new-
law does not affect them, or doing contract work.
"The St Eugene Miuing company had
a specified amount of work in the mint-
laid out to be done between now and thc
first of October and had $'5.no.1 set aside
with which todo it,' said Manager Cronin
a few hours after the men quit work last
Monday, "but this specified amount of
work could not be accomplished hy
working the miners only eight hours and
paying the (3 51 scale. Therefore, the
only  alternative  ts  to   close  down  tbe
'What effect will the shutting down
Ol the rulue have upon the building of
the new concentrator?" was asked.
'It will hive no material affect for the
present We will continue work for a
couple of weeks at least. Tl.en should
there tie no change in the situation we
may close that work dowu also. Il
wild be useless to expend $50,000 or
So,ooo for a concentrator, flume and
tramway and then lie idle and rot."
Mr. Cronin isof the opinion that the
eight hour law will not be a success, and
contends that the theory advanced by
so many that a miner can do as much
work in eight hours as be can in ten and
keep it up is all bosh. He says be
would much prefer lo pay a miner *j 75
for ten hours than f} for eight hours,
and believed that the miners of tbe
Kootenay? a= a whole would never 1*
satisfied to work for f *, a day at any
rate. He expressed the hope that the
obnoxious law would be repealed and
tbe former conditions restored, where
both the employer a:id the employed
were satisfied.
The St Etigeoe.
There seems to be no doubt now but
that the GooderhaHi-BiacksU-ck syndicate will uke up its option on tbe St.
Eugene property at Moyie in July. It is
staled on ^oo-l authority that an offer of
I50C.CC0 war made for tbe property and
refused, and then &u option was secured
on 60 per cent of it for fcj75.cco. If the
deal goe1* through, and this fact is virtually assured, heavy work will begin at
once. It is .he policy of this syndicate
to thoroughly develope the property and
continue to block out ore until tbe most
favorable conditions exist for shipment
and treatment, and this policy will be
adhered to in the management of the St.
A Big Copper Proposition.
The mineral location made near the
mouth of Perry creek by the late Mr.
Irving is proving an immense proposition, with great possibilities. Mr. Taylor has been pushing development work
lately and has found that the ledge is of
Immense width. A drift has been run in
on the footwal] about So feet showing
throughout quartz well mineralized with
copper sulphides aud iron. Several
shorter drifts were then run through the
slide rock with the intention of finding
the width cf the ledge, but the hanging
wall has not yet been reached and it is
evident that there is a well mineralized
ledge of over a hundred feet in width.
This property is only ten miles from
Cranbrook and will some day probably
be one 1 f the largest contributors to the
prosperity of the town.
The Lake Shore.
The deal for the Lake Shore property
at Moyie wns closed up last Monday and
the first payment made. J. C, Drewry,
representing the Canadian Gold Fields
syndicate, was iu Moyie with C. E. Est-
mere, who represented the owners. The
first payment was made. Active work
will commence ou lhe properly as soon
as ihe necessary arrangements can be
made, and a contract has been let for a
seven* drill Ingersoll-Sargeant compressor, which will be installed within 11 few
weeks. They will also erect a mill, and
push the development ofthe property as
rapidly as possible. Work still continues iu getting out ore to complete the
contract made with the smelter.

One day last week Pearl Ransom, an

the matter was placed befo e
Magistrate J. F, Armstrong, at

assizes. The bond was furnished and
he was released.

infancy. Tbe North Star company as

pay more than $3 for eight hours work.

one of the handsomest buildings in town.
Good progress has been made this
week on the new coke evens, about 40
now being well under way, and before
the end of the month the whole of the
first row of 50 will be finished.
The Le Roi smelter al Northport is
proving a good customer for the coke
ovens of the Crow'a Nest Pass Coal
company. Fifteen car loads have passed
through the customs within the last two
days, which were valued at $ 1519.
Mr. A, Joyce, of the well known firm
of Joyce Bros., went east last week as far

right, Abe, Churches of that kind nre
very welcome.
After keen competition with the American coke makers, the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company have secured an order for
coke from the United Silver Smelter at
Great Fulls. It is alleged tbat Penusyl
vauia coke is being laid down at less
than fy a ton, which is a marvel, seeing
that it has to be hauled 3000 miles. On
the other hand it costs about $4 50 for
freight and transfers on Fernie coke a
distance of 360 miles, in addition to
duty. This points to tbe necessity of
cheaper transportation and the doing
away with transfers at Lelhbridge and
Great Falls, which not only ndd greatly
to the' cost, but cause a lot of breakage.

J Pcttibonc's Son. I
rpIlE peculiar success that attend
_   ed my remarkable father, Hen
ben Fettibone, as a hunter," said tbe
mun from over Sinnemuhoning way,
"was due to his niurvelous knowledge
of the anatomical structure of wild
beasts ns mueh an to his unerring skill
us a marksman,
" 'It isn't enough to know,' he used to
say, 'just where a deer's heart is locat-
i'd in the animal's body, or the exact
•pot in the interior of 11 bear where the
kidneys lie snugly ensconced, und then
to be able to sock a bullet there if you
want to be sure of your game, Not by
any means, A deer will go a mile easy
enough with a bullet in its heurt before
it will drop, and you may plug u hole
clear through a bear's kidneys, und yet
he will hump himself and get far out of
your reach in u luurel patch before he
Wads out that he is 11 goner. Vou may
get the deer, after 11 good deal of
trouble nnd suspense, but you'll never
get the hear. The safest und only prof*
I table way to hunt, to say nothing of
beiug merciful lo your beast, is to kill
your game deud where it stands or
where it runs. Thus, always sever n
ventricle of it deer's heart when you
shoot, and nil you have lo dp then is
to walk up and skin the deer. Never
skirmish around io draw bend on a
bear's kidneys. Separate the spinal
cord at the neck with your bullet, and
the bear will die iu the middle of a
breath, Everybody knows,' my re-
markuble father used to say,'that if you
shoot the head olf a pheasant as it
swoops like the wind through the
thicket, the pheasant will drop deud.
of course it will, but then see what a
shocking-looking thing the deud bird is,
with Its ragged, bloody, headless neck.
Beheading your pheasant thus is cruel.
Just ut the hasp of the bird's bill, below
the eyes, is u hunch of nerves, A sudden shock to those nerves will kill the
bird Instantly. Direct your rifle hall,
us lhe bird lakes wing, so that it will
whiz over thut bunch of nerves so close
that if It wus a hnir closer it would
break the skin. A stroke of lightning
couldn't drop thnt bird any quicker
1 lm a the concussion of that passing bullet will. Remember this, my son,' Reuben fettibone used to say, 'nnd never
waste, [lain or mtiniinix your gnme,'
"Of course you have ull heard how
my remarkable father used to bring in
his scores und scores   of    birds,    fat,
plump, and not one mutilated, but you
never knew beforo, I guess, by what
marvel he was able to do it."
"Wc didn't, hey?" said thu man hi the
red, blue, yellow, green, pink and purple Mackinaw jacket. "Well, I knmv'd
it, by guns! An' 1 kin fetch 'em in jist
the same way he done It!"
"What!" exclaimed the man from
over Slnncmahontng way. "Do you
mean to say that you can paralyze—"
"Don't mean to sny nothin' o' the
kind!" interrupted the man In the variegated jacket. "But 1 kin snare, by
"Mackinaw," suld the man from over
Hlnni-mahoning way, after a pause,
"base insinuation pomes with ill grace
from a mnn who borrows all the tobacco he chews."
This wus hard on the mnn In the many-
lined jacket. He wus just on the point
of asking (he man next to liim for a bite
olT his plug, mnl, although he wonted
the chew badly, he didn't dare give Immediate corroboration to the man from
Slnnemohonlng'a remark) so he postponed asking for the chew nnd suffered,
The man from over Slnnemahonlng way
grinned and resumed.
"'Praxiteles,' my remarkable father
used to say, 'never  waste,  pain or
mummix your gnme. Let anatomical
knowledge go hand in hand with knowing how to shoot. Then. If you keep
your powder dry, you'll tumble things
tremendous.' And I followed his advice, und I have tumbled things, I rake
It, Indeed I have, ltut of all the tumbling of things 1 ever did nothing ever
reflected more credit on my remark-
iible father than a nent bit of tumbling
I did onee down on the lower Sinnwn*-
hone. I claim no credit for it for myself. It wus neat, indeed* but far be it
from me to sny that I ever would have
thought of doing it if it hud not been
for the preoepta and example of lteuben
Pettlbone,    Never!
"Of ull the multitudinous things I
have tumbled I have seldom gone out
with vengeance In my heart to tumble
Vm- but this time I dltl. [did, Indeed,
(iood reason 1 bud for It, loo, although
I luul been more than patieut. When
the ninth sheep disappeared from my
pasture, though, 1 thought It was time
to call a hall on the bear, and 1 took
iny rlflo anil went out, vengeful and determined,  1 got on the track of the bear
about u mile down the Sinnomahonc
end followed it three miles. The stream
mude a sudden bend right there, and
as I moved cautiously around the bend
1 enme in sight of the sheep stealer,
stretched out on the bank sound asleep
a hundred yards or so ahead of me.
He wasn't in a position for me to give
him a deud shot, nnd vengeful as I was
[ could not bear to think of giving him
even u moment of suffering, I was on
the point of hollering nt him to scare
him up and show me a proper shot
when 1 happened to raise iny eyes, and
there live rods ahead lay a big buck
chewing his cud hi swept contentment,
Deer were uncommon scarce that season, und I hnd use for just such a buck
us that, so I concluded to postpone my
vengeance a moment, kill the deer and
then attend to the bear before he could
get into the brush, for I knew he would
be up und off ut tiie sound of my gun, I
was just about to run my eye over the
gun barrel und let the buck die with
the taste of his cud still iu his mouth
when whut should come strutting out
Into the open side by side but a big
cock pheasant and his ben. 1 had no
sooner seen them than ft comprehensive
Idea struck mc, and I proceeded at once
to carry it out, _, . _    ;
""flits will be the nea*est piece of
work I have ever done,' said 1 to myself.   'I wish father was here to see it.'
"I was apprehensive of only one thing,
and thnt was that the hear might wake
up before things were in proper shape.
I watched the two pheasants us they
strutted on out side by side. I was
ready to act the instant they got to the
point my nice calculation bad flxed on.
They got there at last. 1 gave a yell.
The bear woke up and sprang to his
feet, brondslde towurd me. The buck
rose like a flush at the same instant.
The birds got up neck und neck. I flred.
The beur sunk down and lay there as if
he hud resumed his nap. The two
pheasants dropped to the ground side
by side, just the same as they had got
up. The buck tumbled where he was
lying when I woke him.
" 'If you could see this, Reuben Fettibone,' suid I 'It's pleased you'd be,
I'm sure, to know what an apt pupil
I have been, indeed, and to see how
deep yonr lessons did alnk in!'
"Yes. Tlie bear's splnul cord was severed at the neck, the bullet having
plowed there just deep enough to do lt

a mark on the pheasants. The bullet

The man in the red, blue, pink, yellow, green nnd purple mnckinaw jacket

and opened his mouth an if to speak.
"Here, Mackinaw," said the man from

Mackinaw took tbe plug, bit off a

Quaker Hunt-it*.'.
In the "Chronicles of uKentuckSet*
tie m twit "is given an iustuuee uf Integrity which deserves to be made historical.
It is related of three brothers who were
importing merchants In North Carolina
before the war of the revolution. They
were Quakers, us were many of the
curly colonists of that state. The Btory,
if true, goes to show- thut In this country
private honor Is too often superior to
tho public conscience. During the war
Nortli Carolina, and we believe others of
the colonics, passed un ordnance requiring citizens owing money to subjects of Great Britain to pay the amount
into- the treasury of the. state, which
thereby assumed the position of debtor
to the foreign creditor, Hareourt
Brothers owed at the time a large
amount for goods imported, nnd this
amount they paid as soon as posslbleto
the state treasurer. After the termination of the war und signing of thc treaty
of peace, the English creditors, unable
to recover the amount due them from
the state, which had been hopelessly
bankrupted by the long nnd severe
fit niggle for independence, demanded
payment from thc original debtors, as
they were allowed to do by thc terms of
the treaty of pence. The Harcourtfl,
who were honorable merchants, paid
again In full, although In so doing they
were, in their old age, left comparatively poor.—Youth's Companion.

In The Kl-Htrlcu.1   Review   appears   uu
article describing how two eagles which
alighted on an electric transmission line
in California  caused   their   own   demist;
and a short, circuit on the line. The illustration herewith, taken from The Journal
of Electricity of Snn Francisco, shows
what was left of the eoglos after the accident. Our contemporary states thnt the
genera I ing plain of tin- Sun Joaquin
Rlectric  Company of Fresno, Cub. was
one day   pumping   ItUHH!   volts serenely
into the transmission line, when sudden
k ono of ibe el rou Its developed n dead
-hurt circuit, with the almosl Instantaneous open-circuiting nnd grounding of the
two legs of the .in nit whleh were on the
upper cross am
riiptcd    the   service   in    Fresno   nud   the
ground thus thrown on was su severe
thai it became Impossible to burn it out.
After ii few minutes' delay the service
wns resumed over the second transmission
line, which had remained uninjured.
Linemen were sent out at onco io ascertain tho cause of the trouble nnd ropnlr
the broken circuit, nnd, after having gone
over nearly ill) miles of line. Ihey renchet)
n. mountain top, nbout live miles from
the power house, whero the brook wns
discovered. As to the cause of it. there
wero found the scant relics of two gray-
eagles, consisting merely of one skull
nml four feel and parts oi' legs. Two of
tbu talons wore clutched tightly to the
line wires in llteml realization of the grip
uf death, while tho remaining two foot
and parts of legs wero free from the
marks of roasting, or rather from the
burning to a orlsp, that ehuvncterlzed the
foot that clutched the wires, ifotn vestige
of the budies or feathers of either bird,
nor of the head of one of thom, could be
found; In fuel, the only remains were
those .shown lu the illustration. Another
Interesting specimen was found, however, which shows tho terrific bent of the
electric are. The mil along the pole line
at tho pluee Indicated consists of pure
granitic sand, which, wherever the wire
touched the ground, hud become melted
into glass, and oven a pleco of quartz had
boon fused nnd run in together wilh the
giuss. This Is well shown In the specimen presented in the illustration.'
The olrcunistaneo of the accident sug
gests a theory lm- it, usuvldontly the two
eagles alighted on different legs of the
three-phase circuit within dose proximity
to each other: that they actually came
into coninci, nml, in su doing, formed a
short circuit, which nor only Incinerated
the eagles, hut threw ihe wires Into shu
circuit and burned them aft.

cutting uul the foundation and making a

tempt was made to save the mill by
blowing up lhe dam with dynamite, but
it proved futile, as the force of the cur-

How Ciumil.'i te Adverltsed Abroad.
Montreal Herald:   The Canadian IV
ciflc Railway  company has the reputation nf being n  pretty good advertiser,
but mnny doubtless would be surprised
to learn thai its publications are put to
useful purposes In distant lands.   Iu a
recent number of thc New YorkOutloolt,
Mr, Geo. Kennan has an interesting nr-
ii de on the "Regeneration of Cuba," in
which incidentally is told how thorough,
ly Canada is advertised abroad hy tilts
compauy,   he  says:     "At   49  Sngarni
street, for example, I visited with Major
Barbour a private dwelling where, iu two
rooms that corresponded roughly to the
front and   hack parlor of nu American
house,   there  were    crowded   104 boy.-*
from '1 lo 12 years ol age, without desks,
text books or slates, and almost without
blackboards 01 maps.   The principal of
this school   was   an   intelligent   young
Cuban, named Ramon Martinez, a g'ad
11.lie of the University of Havana, who
had iu his scanty library such books as
Wlckerih mi's "Meihodsof Instruction,"
Sully's Psychology of Teaching " Froe-
bel's "Education of Man," nearly all of
Herbert Silencer's works, and lhe educational books of Cnrrie,   Sheldon  nnd
I-'iuh; but whose whole leaching outfit
or plant, if I may so call it, consisted of
lwo small blackboards, a map of half tlu*
wbild on a globular projection, issued as
an advertisement by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, one worn, tattered copy of OllcndorPs "New Method
of Learning English," a few local, butterflies, shells and mlneralss of his own
llecll'in,   half   a  ih /.en   khidergaten
cubes  pvrunids, spheres, etc., of glass.

iys Rngllsh, ami by means ofthe Cana-
dinn Pacific advertising chait he was en
deavortttg  to  make  ihem   acquainted
with   Uh-1 world  iu wh'ch they  lived."
Canadian I'.icilic officials claim that no
better mnpB aro needed tor teaching in
the schools of Cuba or nny other country
than those issued by lhe company.   The
one alluded  to by Mr.  Rennnu shows
the world on n proper scale, nnd is not
distorted. 11s some charts nre frequently
liable to be.   and being on   Mercntor's
projection, is ab-olntely accurate,
