I'Bob" Reuwlck, for years a reportor-
inl writer on the Nelson papers, has heen
appointed Gold Commissioner for that
distiict. The appointment is a gonl
one, and is a slight recognition of the
good woik done hy Mr. Renwick in telling the world of resources of the Kootenays. No man In Nelson is better equipped for the position and "tljb's" many
filends will rejoice in his good luck. He
will be able to let the festive news item

The Nelson Economist is responsible
for the following strange incident: "Tbe
other day two gentlemen were walking
d wn Baker street. Both have bten
residents of Nelson for some ti me. On
tbe opposite side of tbe street was a
lady strolling along leisurely with a boy
five or six years old. Oue of the gentlemen remarked to the other that the
women with the little boy on tbe opposite side of the street wrs rather good-
looking, and tbat she must be a stranger
in the city as he had not seen her before, His friend looked a Utile more
carefully at the women, and acquiesced
as lo her good looks, hut added: "I
rather think I have seen her."     A  few
llQIirs Hfte.'Wnrtl llm   li.tt.cr wan ntttlug- in
the office room of one of the lintels,
when he saw the lady with her Lushand
and the little boy coming out of the din*
ing-rooui. This time he knew her and
the women recognized him. She was
bis divorced wife and the boy with her
was his son. He had seen neither of
them since be started for the Klondyke
four or five years ago, and was a little
puzzled as to how be would be received
by the woman and ber present husband-
He was soon satisfied on ihis score, for
the woman walked over to him. warmly
shook his band, at the same introducing
him lo husband No. 2 The boy whs
also enlightened as to his relationship
lo the stranger, and a very pleasant
evening was spent hy all the parties to
ibis circumstantial meeting. Stranger
still is it that husband No. i discovered
that husband No. 2 was his cousin
through another mystifying complication iu tiie marriage relationship. The
second husband, wife and hoy have returned iiium*. hut not before extending
n pressing Invitation to husband No. 1
to eat his Christmas dinner with them
in their new western home nt Seattle."

We understand lhat Cranhrook is to

Within a short time there will he an
organisation hu med here to be known as
the "Independent Order of Maligned
Mother-lu laws." It is the Intention to
form branches throughout Cnnndn and
litter to extend the woikings to the
States. We are glad that Cranbrook is

cause the time Is coming when the order
will he 11 power in lhc laud, Among the
It-mures to he incorporated in lhe tenets
of thc order are the deniHuds on the hour

What Cranbrook needs and needs
badly is a literary society for tbe young
men and women of this place. There
too many young people growing up who
don't know Jululs Censer from the Sultan of Turkey, or whether Kipling or
Shakespeare wrote Richard III, and yet
they can tell you about tbe latest waltz
step or gossip. Youth presents the
golden opportunity to cultivate the
mind, to educate self, and yet comparatively few take advantage of it.

There are a bunch of bachelors in
Cranbrook who should get roasted to a

It Is quite evident Unit the few kickers from Pernie will attempt to carry
the wur they ^bave inaugurated Into
Africa. It is presumed that the editor
of the Fernie Free Press would ■■.ive a
fair statement of the foot rare thnl took
place here on thc 27th if be hnd not been
influenced to do otherwise. The Herald of last week contained a fair and
unpiejtidiced account of the circumstances of that event, and the Free Press
man when he found the account given
him by the returned sports differed
might easily have instituted an Inquiry
and found out who was wrong. Or he
might have given both sides of the
question, but he did nol. The Herald
will not follow his example, but below
gives the account as it appeared iu the
Free Pi ess:
The men came down to the mark with
Nevin probably eight or ten laches in
the lead. Haines fired his pistol for the
men. to start and in ihe shout that followed the start the serom! shot from II.
llenlley's pistol was not heard by tbe
runners, ,For seventy yards the men
ran side by side and then Nevin gradn
ally forged ahead and crossed the line
fully three feet ahead of Mitchell. Nevin
was bolstetl on the shoulders nf his
friends and was being curried ofT the
field in triumph when ihey learned tbat
the judges had declared it to be a false
start. Tremendous excitement prevailed. The Cranhrook meu thought that
they were being robbed of the race and
no language was too strong to npply lo
the Fernie boys. It was finally nrrauged
that the race waa to he run over again
atone o'clock and Mitchell left for tbe
Cranbrook hotel.
At about ia o'clock he was informed
lhat tbe time bad been changed until
12:30, but he had strained his leg in Ihe
race and desired all the time be could
before going out again and as tbe pain
developed as the afternoon came ou it
waa finally decided tbat he ba?l belter
not run. The Craubrook people were
furious when Ihey learned that there
would be uo race and heaped every insult upon tbe heads of those from
Ferule. The judges decided that Nevin
had won the race by default and that all
side bets were declared off, hut later on
reversed the latter part of their decision
aud said they had nothing lo do with
the side bets.
The Fernie men who bad money on
the race have entered protests against it
being paid over on llie ground that there
was no race. How the matter will end
It is dtfllciilt to sin . Had the Cranbrook
people not been so abusive lho chalices
nre the matter would have been dropped
but afler the way they were treated thc
Fernie men are determined to light the
mailer to tbe end anil liuve engaged ,
Messrs. Ross & Alexander to look afler
their interests.
The above account would he all right
if It did not woefully misrepresent tbe
facts, To take up the misstatements In
regular order seems to he the best way
to handle Hie matter.
1 Tbe men crossed the stnrting line
running abreast. Why wasn't it so reported i
'2 Hurry Bentley freely slated thut il
wns nu even stint and tbat his gun was
fired accidentally. Why wasn't it so reported?
3 The judges had no chance to declare a false start as Mitchell was olf the
ground before they got together afler
the race.    Why wasn't It so reported?
4 No strong language wns applied to
the Pernie boys except during an ulter-
cation hctween a Feruie mar. and a
Cranbrook man and their grudge was of
long standing- Oa thc contrary, tbe
Cranhrook meu all said that they would
give tbe Pernie men another chance.
Why wasn't it so reported?
5 The arrangement toiuu at 1 o'clock
was made between a single individual of
Cranbrook and not with the knowledge
ofthe judges. Why wasn't it so reported?
6 The judges'first decision was to
the effect that the race should be run
over at 12:30. Why wasn't it'bo reported?
1.7 When word was brought back to
tbe grounds that Mitchell would not be
back until 1 o'clock the judges consented to the delay. Why wasn't it sore*
8 The kickers who had money up
hurried dowu town and held a conference and theu for the first lime came
the report that Mitchell had strained a
tendon.   Why wasn't It so reported?
9 The most of the afternoon was
spent by Ihe Feruie kickers down town
io conferences and preparing  protests
against paying over the money.    Why
wasn't it so reported?
io One of their numbei was sent up
to the fair grounds to interview James
Kynii as to the probability of their crowd
drawing down their money in case
Mitchell did not run again, ami .Mr.
Ryan to tithe party that judges would
have nothing to say until lhe decision
was rendered ami that all slue beta
would be governed by tbat decision,
Why wasn't it so reported?
11 The judges never decided thai all
bits wete ull, it till such a statement is a
base fabrication.     Why wasn't It so reported.'
12 No decision was reversed but the
only decision given was to the effect
lhat Nevin won lhe race by delimit and
nothing was said in their decision nbout
side bets ns every sporting man knows
tlmt the judges' decision governs iu
such mutters. Why wasn't il su reported?
13 As to the disposition displayed to
drop the matter, it ts well known lhal
within thirty minutes after tbe race was
run and the Fernie men saw that Nevin
was the best man they began to scheme
lor some plan to draw down llieir mon
ey.   Why wasn't it so reported?
14 A large number of people who
had money up oil the race, ami many of
them were from Peruie, declared after
the judges' decision had been announced
that the stakeholders should turn over
the money.    Why wasn't it so reported

Experiences of a Cranbrook Visitor.
II. W. Ross who was over from Fort
Steele a short time ago relntes an experience not calculated to inspire admiration of public affairs.
When he arrived at Port Steele junction he requested the agent to express
a package of goods to Moyie. His
agent informed him that the express
oflice for lhat section was leu miles out
into the country at a place called Port
Steele, and that if be wished to send
anything anywhere be would have to
have It billed from there aud pay tbe
cost of carrying it to the railroad. Mr.
Ross had Ibe package with hiiu and had
carried it himself over the road, but not
caring to can y it back he began to study
up some scheme to beat tbe express
company and also forward the goods.
Upon inquiring he learned that it would
cost fi 25 to forward the package from
Port Steele to Moyie, and thut it could
not be sent on the coming train. He
then asked the cost of a ticket to Moyie,
and learned that it was Sl.15. He
bought the ticket, checked the package
to Moyie nud rode to Craubrook. Tbere
he sold the ticket for seventy-five cents.
After holding out enough of what he
had saved on tbe deal to pay his fare
hack to Port Steele Junction, be proceeded to speud the balance for beer.
Iiut while in town he met with another
experience thut he didn't sidestep so
He pui up nt the Cranbrook note!, and
while there he Invited a friend to take a
glass of beer. The obliging clerk in
formed- thut he could have a glass of
beer; but that the law forbade him to
dispense-any spiritous or malt liquors to
bis friend. The friend is an en -
men Iiy respectable and responsible
gentleman. Mr. Ross demanded an
explanation, which when given was
thut the friend was a resident of the
lown. This threw no light upon Mr.
Ross' understanding. Then it was
further explained that it was Suuday.
Siill ihis did not clear up the fog, and
the mau from Port Steele asked for
more information; upon which the
whole subject was elucidated to the effect that it was not considered wicked
for people of Fort Steele to drink beer
in Cranbrook ou Sundays, but that it
was beneath the moral tone ami detrimental to the residents of Cranbrook to
potronlze bar rooms upon the Sabbath
Mr Ross has beeu living at Port Steele
for sometime where the Sunday law
Is not enforced and he has arrived at tbe
conclusiou tbat the law was especially
designed for the benefit of tbe resident?
of Fort Steele who may wander away
from home on Sundays,
Por the paat two years there has been
complaints from all over Ihe district
about the necessity of people having to
ride *.'o miles from the railway to reach
lhe government offices or attend court.
It was hoped that the present government would appreciate the injustice of
thc arrangement, and issue orders that
would bring to lhe people relief, but in
the face of complaints, petitions and
protests, the government olfices are still
twelve miles from the railway, court is
sllll held at Furl Steele, and every one
who has business with any brunch ol
the government, must be put to lhe Inconvenience and expense of that tide
into tbe interior to the ouly town in the
district that is not located ou a railroad.
To any one, the situation is the rankest kind uf faices, and is being maintained by a government so narrow minded
and so childish us to seek this method
ol political revenge by imposing upon a
whole district to meet tbe political demands of two or three desgruuilcd politicians, who would punish every resident
in South East Kooteuay for what they
term the political sin of Craubrook 111
uot reluming a majority for the government candidate.
The matter hut gone so tar, that Mr.
Prior who holds the position of minister
uf mines, during his recent visit here,
intimated that relief might be secured if
Cranbrook people would stifle their objections to the government and barter
llieir political freedom for government
changes tbat should be granted for the
sakeofeommou sense and justice, regardless of the political status of any
particular pari ofthe district. Instead
of forcing people into line hy this blind
and senseless policy tbe government is '
alienating people who might otherwise
have remained loyal, hut whose sense 01
justice and fair play overbalances any
feeling they may have for any particular
The situation has arrived at a stage
where Judge P'orin, who, presides at
the sessions of county court held in this
district has declared tbat patience bas
censed to be a virtue, ami has written a
long letter to Attorney General Eberts,
setttug forth the situation in the plainest
of terms and declaring that there should
be a change at once, and that tbe place
of holding court should be changed to
Tbe Herald thinks that good might
he accomplished if two courts were held
in South Enst Kootenay, one at Craubrook, aud tbe other at Fernie, the two
centers of population in this district.
So far as Cranbrook Is concerned, every
arrangement can be made here to give a
comfortable temporary court room,
until the dog kennel, charitably termed
tbe government buildings, be so changed that our men and a boy may congregate at one time without forcing the
constable to Bland outside so as to give
sufiiceut room
llriimnuiiiil snd Brown Have A Narrow
The westbound passenger train Sunday morning met with an accident nbout
three miles west of Pincher Creek and
did not reach Cranbrook until 111:30 that
night. The engine was iu charge of
Engineer Drmiimoiid. Ernest Ilrown being the fireman, and on lenviug Pincher
both were ou the loukout for trouble as
there is a long stretch of gumbo to crOil
and the weather conditions were just
riK-H to QftUM Slide! and   the spot where
tbe accident occurred has long beeu
recoguized as oue of the most dangerous on tbe Crow. Tbey were running
at a slow rale of speed, about ten or
twelve miles an hour, and about 5:45
they approached a small coulee where
the track dips down and just as Engineer Drummond was about to reduce
the speed still more, lhe truck suddenly
gave way and the engine toppled over
on its left sde uml slid down the embankment. Firem.ui Brown says: "1
was sitting on the seat on Ihe left side
of the cub and we were both keeping a
sharp lookout on the track ahead where
the headlight shown but could see nothing wrong and tbe first warning I bud
waa the crunching o! the tender on the
ties. Tbe engine swung around so turn
cab and tender came together, completely closing the guiigway 011 my side. I
shouted, 'We are going over' and sprang
across the cab and  leaped   from  the
gangway on the engineer's suit to the
bank above lhe track, alighting in the
fro/en mud, but fuituuaiety was uninjured, As the engine went over Drum*
iiioiid al|0 jumped, am), like myself, escaped Injury. The fact ihat nothing
went over on top of the engine probably
accounts for our escape ami we cau consider ourselves extremely lucky thai
such was the case. Tbe baggage car
was deiafled but .lid not leave the roadbed and remained in an uprigbl position."
At last accounts tbe engine was still
tying on its back with the up*.*er rigging
buried in the mud, aud it will l* an extremely difficult piece of woik to pick
the engine up as the hillside is composed ut gumbo and any attempt at jacking tbe engine up is frustrated by the
ground slipping away.
Happening as it did in the darkest
part of ihe morning hours it seems indeed fortunate lhat no  one was injured.
Chrislmas (ioods.
The Christmas holiday! will soon be
here- and from the present outlook it Is
evident that Cranbrook m**rc)ianis will
have a larger trade this year than ever
before. This Is well, for they are belter
prepared than ever to meet the demands
of the district. Never before has tbere
beeu such large and fine stocks brought
in, and never before were ihey so carefully selected to meet the changed conditions lu this section. No town in the
listrict, outside of Cranbrook, will be
able to make such display of attractive
goods, and in consequence there will be
a great influx of people in tbis town
during the next few weeks, making
Christmas purchases. Cranbrook merchants have bought cheaply this year,
and the people nre going to get the bene

Morrissey Strike Ended.
Morrissey Miner: The strike at the
Morrissey coal mine has been settled.
Thc men have gone back to work, and
the trouble ihat threatened this valley
has passed away, and once more the
Industrial situation la calm and serene.
The result la tbe source of gratification, not only to tbe people of this district but to thu business Interests of the
entire province. The mining Industry
was held in the balance pending tbe
settlement of tbe diniculty, as there
was a fear that the strike would extend
to the collieries of Fernie and Michel,
thus cutting off entirely the supply of
coal and coke from these Important
toarcea. So closely have the quartz mining and coal industries of tbla province
become Identified, tbat the suspension
of work In the coal mines In the Crows
Nest country means paralysis for the
mining industry throughout tbe province.
A wmk ago conditions were serious
n tbe extreme, At tbe Morrissey mine
It was a complete shut down, and It was
an open question In thc minds of the
public whether the men iu Fernie and
Michel would follow suit. Such a movement would mean a dlsasterous strike
that might be prolonged for months.
Fortunately It has been averted, and
the men, under mutal concessions, have
returned to work.

homage to thisvenerable prelate. Later
he waa ihe guest of the Rev. Sisters at
the St. Eugene Uorpital- Tbe Rev. Bishop delivered bis sermon at St. Mary's
Church Sunday morning. His preliminary remarks were a eulogy to the parishioners for the magnificent improve-'
ments which had been made to the church
since bis last visit. He regretted very
much tbat the Rev. Father Ouellette
was uot present to receive his share of
the praise as he felt quiet sure that it
was partly due to the great zeal and untiring efforta of Father Ooelette that sucb* '
extensive improvements had been effect- '

May Utilize lhc Pilot Bay Smelter.
There is a brand new "tory in connection with the old smelter at Pilot Bay says
tbe Rossland Miner. The latest is tbat
the plant will be utilized, together with
the Kaslo sampling works tor the preliminary treatment of Slocan zinc ores
prior lo their   shipment  to  Kinsas,  for
final reduction.
Thntnai JoneB,representing sine smelting interests al tola, Kansas, bas just
completed an inspection of the works in
company wiih A. tt. Buchanan, manager ot tbe Batik ol .Montreal at Nelson,
tbe property having belonged to th*
hauk since the original company went
into liquidation. A railroad rate of fu
per ton bus been secured on Slocan sine
ore! Consigned to Kinsas smelters, and
the rate is regarded ns extremely reasonable in view of the fact that the ore
has to be hauled almost ncross the United States from norlh lo south, and that
the product will require lo be handled
by two independent roads after delivery
at St. Paul, The preliminary process
intended to be carried on at Kaslo und
Pilot Bay is presumably a concentrating
scheme, whereby us much waste as possible will be eliminated from the shipping product. Under these conditions
it is believed that the export of zinc ores
will assume substantial proportions, and
afford au outlet for a considerable
amount nf Slocan ores that cannot he
marketed at ull under existing circumstances with low prices for lead and a
heavy zinc penalty to be footed at lhe
ordinary lead smelters.
The Pilot Hay smelter is familiar to
all who have beeen on Kootenay lake.
tt was constructed to treat tbe ores of a
mine nearby anil such customs ores as
were shipped in. The plant was one of
lhe pioneer lend smelters in the Kootenays, but tt wus not worked at a profit
largely because of the tow guide of the
ore in tbe proprietary mine. The rumor
that tbe works were to be started again
has cropped up seiui-atitiujlly for a nuui
ber ol years, hut nothing defiuite has
materialized as yet.
Do You Take The Herald?
You should if you don't. It gives the news of
the district. It works for the district. It is
owned by the editor and not by any clique or
faction. It is n-orth $10.00. It costs only $2.00
be obtained lu the district, while the
lunch served during the evening will be
a gastronomic dream. Free conveyance
will meet the trains at tbe depot, and
nothing will be left undone toward gtv
ing the visitors a royally good time.

"Kcotty" Mc Arthur took In tbe celebration at Cranbrook last Monday. He
rather enjoyed the visit, but says that
city life is a little too strenuous for

A full acconni of the much talked of
foot race at Cranbrook will be to nnd on
the Inside pages of The Miner this
week, ll was evidently the cause of a
hot time in the old town, antl It seems
tbat some of tbe sports propose to go
to law over their bets. The man who
would seek redress In the courts on a
proposition of thut kind wilt be made
the laughing stock of the district. Tbe
people like to see the real thing when
tt comes to sport.

One of the most Important deals In
mining property in the Wild Horse dis-
crlct. was made a few days ago, when
Dave Griffith gave a bond on his pro-
petty, situated on tbe east bank ot
Wild Horse creek, four miles from Fort
Steele, Tbe property consists of the
Tit for Tat, Lent/Lode and Celt mineral claims, also the Bald Mountain
located on tbe west bank of Wild
Horse. The claims have been develop
ed to a considerable extent hy tunnels,
drifts and shafts. Tbe oim Is a gold
quartz, absolutely free milling.
tomont is as follows '
what broken series ol ob-
aurvutions at Dawson uud various
olhor pi.ue.s in Yukon Territory between iN'.'j unit itjun uud a continuous M-ii.-s at Dawson during the past
three ..ears, ulluid tlatu for estimating with a fair Uegree of accuracy the
average climatic conditions ol the
Klondike. The average annual mean
ti-inpt-rature is about 22 degrees; the
moan of the three summer months Is
about ,-i7 degrees, July being HI degrees; and ol three winter months ill
degrees below zero, with January 23
degrees below zero. Spring may he
said to be open towards tho end uf
April, tbe last zero temperature of
the winter usually occurring about
Hie 6th of this month. May, with
an average temperature of 44 degree**), is by no means un unpleasant
month* and the 28rd is the average
date of tbe last frost yf spring.
Daily observation! during five sum*
mora Indicate that on tho average
tho temperature rises to 70 degrees
ur higher on 46 duys, and tu 80 degree.-; on 14 days; PO degrees waa re-
eorded in Dawson in Juno, 1899, and
05 degrees in July of thu sume year.
These temperatures with much bright
sunshine unit un absence of frost during three months together with the
long days of a latitude Within a few
degrees of the Arctic Circle amply
account for the success so far achieved by market gardeners near Dawson
in growing u large variety of garden
produce including lettuce, radish, *-'ub-
bnge, cauliflower and potatoes, and
warrant the belief that the hardier
cereals might possibly be a successful crop both in parts of Yukon Territory nnd In the far northern districts of the Mackenzie River Basin.
August 23rd would appear to be the
average date ot the *orst autumnal
frcst, the temperature rapidly declining towurda the close of the month.
Although night frosts are not infrequent in September, the month as a
whole is mild with a mean temperature of 42 degrees. October may ba
fairly termed a winter month, the
mean temperature being but 22.5 degrees, and ibe first zero Of winter recorded on the average about the 18th.
Ica usually begins tu run in the Yukon abuut the second week hilt It is
not until quite tho end of the month
or curly in November that the river
is frozen fast. The temperature on
the average during a winter falls to
20 degrees below aero or lower on 72
days, to 40 degrf.es below or lower
on 21 days, to 50 degrees below or
lower on 7 duys, and to 89 degrees
below or lower on two days. In
January, ItiUfi, 05 degrees below was
registered at Fort Constantine, and
iu January, 1901, 08 degrees below
was recorded ut Dawson.
Observations of rain and Bnow have
until the close of last summer beea
very fragmentary, but it is probable
that the summer rainfall near Daw-
son is usually between seven and nine
inches, and that the total snowfall
uf the autumn and winter is between
50 uud  00 inches.
Dawson being situated near the
river with high hills or mountains on
nil sides, is well protected from the
winds and a feature of the town and

Un April 9, 1841, died Llout.-Col,
Joseph Douchelte, the able topo-
gi cipher who indicated what should
have been the line of the Maine
boundary, Horn in Canada in 1774,
be was the son of the naval officer
Who helped Sir Guy Carleton to
make the perilous trip from "Montreal
tu Quebec during Montgomery's invasion. At a very early age he en-
treed the olllce of his uncle, the Sur-
vayor-Qencral of British North America; then he entered the Provincial
navy uml served for some years us a
naval ofltcor. Next he Joined a Fro-
vinclal military turps, und finally, iu
180*1, ho became Surveyor-General in
succession to his uncle, During the
wnr ol 1812 he rendered valuuble services, Mime ot his reconuuisSuuces being particularly daring and successful.     In  August, 1814, he sailed   for
England to superintend the 'publication of his    topographical and geo-
gi.iplural exhibit and description of
Canada.     While   he  wan   in .England
lu* was nominated Surveyor-General,
under the treaty of Client, to establish tho boundary between the British possessions and tlie' United
States. Ilis work in ascertaining the
position or the several ridges ul highlands stretching westward from the
exploring line, which he laid out due
iimib from the mouth of the St.
i'mix Rlvor, was must arduous, and
was highly commended by the commissioners under thu treaty. The
Hue, whiih he indicated as the correct boundary, hus long since been
known to have been the true one ;
the dishonest means by which the
boundary wus advanced to within a
few mill's of the St. Lawrence are
well known. Latar In life, in 1831,
ho published "The British Dominion
in North America," a statistical report of Lower Canada, enriched with
excellent maps.

en tight sight ur tbo liguro of Topson,
thu only Idle mnn in tbe room.
"Topson!" he colled, then hesitated a
moment Thu city editor wanted some
good work accomplished. He wanted
It quick, nml Topson wns nuytblng but
quick.   However, lie continued:
"fto over to No. 1 nnd report to Fox.

Topson donned his coat and, nfter
slowly filling his pipe, left the room
with apparently no further thought
than if be hnd been sent across to get
a paragraph about thu nnnunl meeting
of the society of Know Nothings. Sueh
things us murder stories, social gatherings or pink tens occur as mere Incidents In n reporter's dnlly life. ,-f. is
nil work to hint, nnd that Is the wny he
figures it up.
An hour hnd passed since Topson left
the ollice nnd no word came from him.
The city editor wns j.'.>tihij.- restless,
Fox had returned from police bend*
qnnrters with another story, bill beyond the fuel that Topson hml reported
to him nnd had been given the detail
he knew nothing of his whereabouts.
Two hours passed and no Topson. It
wns now 1:30 n. in., nnd the city cdl*
Ile ivpunti'd of his rush act.'" The
ciiy editor laughed outright,
"Oh, what's lhe use of writing rot

"But," Interrupted the city editor,
looking nt 'Topson nud then continuing
sarcastically: "If you want to know
anything about this murder, ask Tup- j

"Topson:" muttered Detective Robs,
"Topson! Let mu see. You weren't one

It Is nil locked up."
"Hy heavens!" exclaimed Fritz, and
he scratched his bend, "A literary

Thompson. Ain't that what the woman's husbnnd wna—Thompson—a lit*
oi'ury man? Whew!" And ho wills*
"Great God!" cried Duncan. "No,

Don't you sec whnt Fritz means? Yon

bring himself to say It.
Topson never iliuched. He was very
pale, but thnt was all. He simply
b lulled.
"1 mu not good nt making guesses,"
he replied firmly, "and 1 theorize too
much, but yuu are on to a scoop. Mr,
Duncan, so make good use of It. The
woman was my wife—ouee, and left

her tonight for tbe lirst time in five |
years, and I am even."  He gritted his
teeth.  "Wnnt me to linish up the story
properly':"   He tried to smile again us
Duncan gazed at blm In horror.
No one spoke. Detective Ross, look- I
iug at Topson, shifted his eyes toward
tbe outer door und left tho room. Top-
son understood, turned Into the reporters' room, got Ids overcoat, walked
toward the door and out, followed hy

city editor wns taken nbuck, Topson
lind actually wakened up. nml liero,
tiller u two short hours or so, had returned with the Btory fully prepared,
Well, If It needed Illustrating it could

"Very  well," snld   the city  editor; '
"thnt will do, but In future 1 want you
to phono me when I sny so,"
"Yes, sir." And Topson left the
room. Throwing off his overcoat, he
resumed his lounging attitude ut the

the city editor yell:

There are writers who perhaps carry too far the idea that mon me in-

Which they dwell, yet it is not necc-,-
.-.ny to go fai uheld in order to si*
that environment due-*, powerfully Influence nice characteristics The
American ot Fngiish descent is a very
ihiiuieitt man from the Englishman,
uml in Canada one run bcq considerable changes wrought in a singlu
generation. 'The natlva born now far
exceed nil the other elements of tho
community, nnd in tune tlie mass of
ihe people will ho not only native
born hut wilt truce tlielr ancestry
buck through several generations ot
Canadians. When we come to examine the physical environment, we are.
confronted witli the ditficulty that
Canada Is a very extensive country,
exhibiting a great variety uf physical conditions. Wo may expect lo see
developed in time a Canadian of the
sen const, a Canadian oi the piniries,
u Canadian of the lakes. There nro
some general characteristic^ However, and one Is that this is u northern country and therefore a col-d
country. There hns been perhaps loo
much sensitiveness on this point, ns
when lliidyniil Kipling was scolded
for the phrase "Our Lady of the
Snows." Of course, if anyone took
from Ibis phrase lhe meaning -that
this Is a hind without summer, he
o#; uined a very wrong impression.
The best corrective would be the fait
lliat Manitoba has a summer in
which the finest grain und roots ou
the continent are grown. Yet tlio
Manitoba wlnytcrs are long nnd cold,
and wc see uo particular use in
blinking the fuel ur in tvlnciHg when
evei anyone mentions ice or snow
in connection with Canada. The climate hns its advantages after all.
If we cannot grow cotton, wo hnvo
escaped the curse of .slavery, which
wns dim largely to the climatic conditions of the southern States. A
shiftless, idle population cannut
thrive in a country enjoying a good
stiff winter. It is likely we shall be,
for the must pnrt, an Industrious
peupie by necessity, ii nut by inclination.
It is customary to speak of a
northern climate as more conducive
tu health and vigor than a southern
one, but this depends largely on thu
people. There Is no advantage in
fresh, bracing air unless it is taken
into the lungs. The modern appliances for house heating are very
pleasant, but they have their temptations, and the same mny be snid
ubout the clt-clilc ems, which convey
us iii such oase and comfort from
our homes to uur work, These conveniences ure now to he enjoyed, not
only by dwellers in cities but by
farmers, und they ought to be used
like other good gifts with discretion.
A ninn who spends his winter for the
most pnrt in an artificial summer
heat is in no position to boast ot
his invigorating climate. We must
get into the habit of regarding the
winter as something to be enjoyed
rather than avoided.
That our summers ure pleasant und
healthful is evidenced by the large
mil growing number of Americans
wh.. come north to enjoy them. In
this part of rnn.uin the heat is tempered by the grent lake-.; in Manitoba ami the Territories the air is bo
dry and clear that heat ceases to 1*
un Inconvenience, and all but Incorrigible grumblers declare ihat the
ii.iiri sumuEGra era delightful*. On
the tiulf of St. Lawrence, on- the
Atlantic mFit on the Pacjfic coasts
there nre health it-soils enough lor
tbe whole continent. Those parts of
Canada which are not blessed wllh
grent fortilltj havo been evidently
in.irked out us playgrounds and
broathing spaces for tho enormous
population which the North American
..unit..ni will son*..* t\Ay contain. Tho
somewhat slow growth of poulatlon
in Canada mas In time bo regarded
t.s a blessing. Especially ought we
to congratulate ourselves on tho fact
ib.,i ihoro Is not in Canada the common tendency towards congestion of
population in largo cities. Australia,
with n much (mailer population than
Canada, hus much larger cities, nml
Ihoro is dtfllcultj in iteitiiig iho people to lake up land. A very Urge
proportion of our growth is due to
the sell lenient of the wcsl, and iu
H a next decade this is likely to bo
..iill more marked The effect of our
physical environment is hardly yet
appnn nt. What manner of man, for
