"THE   BEST   EVER"
That and  many other expressions of  approval is the compliment tendered us
every day by the shopping public of Cranbrook and District
We believe they are right for we never have taken such pains to collect an Xmas stock and we
believe  our  efforts  have  been  crowned  by gathering  together  the  most  varied  and  artistic  lot  of
goods ever shown in the interior of British Columbia.
If you have not already been in and upstairs, please come, you will enjoy it and so shall we.
We have something for everyone and the prices are right. We bought nearly everything from
the manufacturers and, as usual, we paid cash getting all discounts, of which we give you the benefit.
SATURDAY    WILL     BE     SPECIAL    DOLLS'    DAY
BUY    EARLY   AND   AVOID   THE    RUSH

BRITISH POLITICAL SITUATION
London, Dec. 2—Hv a major itv of
215, after a brief hut exciting sitting,
the house of commons todav recorded
its claim to exclusive control ot the
nation's purse, a claim never hetore
challenged in modern times. The
vote was taken on a resolution offered bv Premier Asquith, which declared, "Thai thc action of the
house of lords in refusing to pass into law the financial provisions made
bv this chamber tor the expenses of
the vear was a bleach of the constitution and au usurpation ot the
rights of the house ol commons." The
resolution was passed bv it vote of
3111 to 131.
Probably the lirst elections in the
horoughs will occur on January s,
and in the eountrv constituencies ou
.-.nmiv IV.
London, Deo. 1.—Evidence is accumulating that lhe election contest
now iu full swine will be one of the
hardest ever fought iu (Ireat Britain,
the leaders of holh parties and the
Labor!tos and Nationalists have planned programs which will make it
most certain lhat the people in everv
pnrt ot the count ry will hear the
question ot the house of lords, tariff
reform, tree trade. Socialism, and
other things discussed from every
point ot view.
HOOKED WORK AT FERNIE
The official canvass ot the votes in
the Kernie dist rid was completed
last week and Returning Officer
Hleasdale declared the result to he
as follows:
Number of votes casl 1898, spoilt
ballots, 44; votes cast for W. R.
Hoss, 7flf>, votes east tor .lohn Harrington, 641); votes cast for A. I.
Kisher, 405.
Mr. Hleasdale declared W. It, Ross
duly elected as member for the Fernie riding and issued a certificate in
accordance with the stated facts.
I). A. McDonald, on behalf of Harrington, asked for a finding as to repeaters and impersonators as shown
by the canvass, hut thc returning ollicer refused to do so, saying he had
concluded his duties as returning officer when he declared the result.
Mr. McDonald cited as his authority for demanding a canvass to determine the number, it any, ot per-
sonators and repeaters, section 133
of chapter 17 of the B. C, Election
Act, which reads as follows:
"At the final count the returning
officer shall examine ballots rejected
by the several presiding olllcers, and
shall scrutinize thc marked copies ot
the register ot votes received trom
the several deputy returning officers
for the purpose of ascertaining whether anv elector has voted more than
once, and tho decision of the returning officer at the final count as to
any    question   arising In respect of
any ballot paper shall be final, subject to reversal on recount before
the countv court judges or on appeal,
or on petition questioning the election returns."
Mr. McDonald pressed for a findintr,
but the returning officer was obdurate ami refused to go further.
.More than 20 repeaters and person-
ators turned up on the lists, but il
will take some time to determine all
the facts, lu some cases it is known
that the persons named and numbered on the lists did uot vote at all,
being absent from the district. In
such cases it is evident that repeaters and personators used these names
of absentees aud voted on them at
more than one precinct,
A few cases of actual repeating
have been detected, the person registered having actually voted in two
places. Enough has been discovered
to warrant the inference thut a premeditated plot was made to use
names for the purpose '-I electing
some one of the candidates and that
a tew names were discovered lo have
been used twice does not cover all
the repeating and personating lhat
was done on the dav ot election.
At least 51) Illegal votes have been
cast, hut indium; from the method
evidently followed it is lmpossrjln to
tell how manv more have been enst
which were illegal.

VICTORIA DAILY COLONIST, Nov. 21, 1908.—"The Pixies"
drew a packed house last night, and was capitally rendered and enthusiastically received. It is a vil1'' great success, full of life nud
laughter from curtain lo curtain. It was rendered throughout in
a manlier llml' surmised evervone. 'i'he audience laughed till their
sides ached, rested and laughed till lhe tears came, and on tho
slreets today Ihey ure laughing yet. It has certainly taken Victoria hy storm, and reflects great credit on Mr. Milne, the author
and conductor,  and  those wh   assisted him.
VICTORIA TIMES, Nov. 21, 11108.—Tlio Victoria theatre was
taxed to iis capacity last nighl to accommodate the crowds who
thronged to see the Orst performance of "The Pixies." Everyone
was amused, Surprised and delighted, while lhe many little folks,
who witnessed the wonderful extravaganza, thought there hud
■.never heen anything like it in the world before. From start to
'finish ihe hig production moved without a hitch, and the precision
with which the voung people wenl through their parts was truly
marvelous. Taken as a whole il wns a magnificent success, by
far the best local allnir ever given iu Victoria, lu snap and go it
compares very favorably with thc work of the very liest professional companies.

three performances up to nearly 1000 people, the largest patronage
ever given a local entertainment here, and the best part- of it is
that everyone got his money's worth.
THE COLUMBIAN. New Westminster, Sept, 28, 1008.—"The
Pixies" is the prettiest, liveliest ami most entertaining production
that has ever graced the local stage and well merits the packed
houses which greeted it. The grotesque make-up of the pixies,
brownies and goblins caused roars of laughter but when they began their antics, the audience abandoned themselves lo screams of
laughter which could he heard for blocks.
DAILY NEWS, New Westminster. Sept. 2!i, 1908.—The fenorfll
expression ot all who saw "The Pixies" was one of wonder that
such artistic work could be done liy voung amateurs. Old theatregoers who expected to be bored laughed themselves sore and said
they were goiii" again tonight. It is certainly a gem, when prepared under ihe veteran leadership of the author, Mr. Milne, and
is unquestionably the best local affair ever given here.

KNOX GIRLS GIVE GOOD CONCERT
The concert held in the Presbvtcr-
iau church on Thursday evening last,
was a splendid affair' and reflected
great credit on the voting ladies and
on those who so carefully trained
them us well. This is uot the first
time these young ladies have been
hetore llie Cranbrook public. They
had already established a reputation
which was' well sustained In Thursday's programme.
Thc immaturities of girlhood, evident in tbeir previous concerts, had
largely given place to more mature
deliberations and judgment, with the
exception ot a few giggles and evidences of nervousness. The chorus
singing   was    a great improvement.
Thc features of the evening were a
pretty solo, "The Four-Leaf Clover,"
hv Miss Elsie Bent, whose voice was
sweet and rich, and gives good promise, the vocal duet by
Misses Bent and Robertson,
and an instrumental duet by
Misses Hodnett and Kennedy were
both good, thc latter being recalled.
The dialogue "Dumb Hells'r iwas
splendid. Thc budding stars were
Misses Gladvs Oaskill. Lilian McCowan, Elsie Bent, Will Brownlee
nnd Charles McCowan.
Tableaux rcpresenliti" "The .loke,"
"Her First Love Letter," "Snowballing" and the "Partine ot Ruth
nud Naomi," shown in colored lights
were verv effective. In thc latter
Mrs. Patterson sang "Re Still Mv
Soul When Dearest Friends Depart."
The climax of thc evening was a
beautiful Amazon drill by twelve
members of the club, dressed uniformly in white, with flowing hair and
bearing javelins ami shields. Thc
audience chamber was completely
darkened and only the stage illumed
wilh a strong light of varied colors,
The Intricate drill wus well carried
out and in thc colored lights wns

PAGEANT OF EMPIRE
ATTRACTIVE    SUMMER    FESTIVAL TO BE HELD AT THE
CRYSTAL PAEACE.
Announcing a great festival of empire to he held at the Crystal Palace
during lhe months of Mav. June and
Julv next vear, the Earl of Plymouth writes to thc press as follows:
"The arrangements which have be?n
iu progress for upwards ot a year are
now completed, and the whole of
thc Crystal Palace and its extensive
grounds of more than two hundred
acres have been taken over hy the
council of the festival of emp're for
the simimer months of n-xt vcur.
"It will be the occssion—In will h
we feel sure that everv Brltnn wil
he keenly interested—ot a social irath-
  in Eli plan d of our fellow subjects of the Briiish empire from thc
different dominions across the sens:
and it is hoped that the result will
be far-reaching iu its effect, and of
real value in increasln" our mutual
understanding and goodwill, nnd thus
in more firmly welding tbe bonds ot

"There  will   he an Important cdu-
MEMORIAL TO CAPTAIN WEBB
STATUE TO BE ERECTED AT
DOVER TO MEMORY OF
FAMOUS SWIMMER.
Next January there will he unveiled nt Dover a statue to the memory
of Capt. Matthew Webb, the only
man to swim across the English
Channel. Recent years have seen
many attempts to emulate bis great
teat, but so far the great sailor-
swimmer, who met sueh u tragic cud
ut Niagara, is the only mau to swim
from England to France.
The site for the statue has not yel
been definitely fixed, hut in all probability it will go tm the Clarence
lawn, near thc front, provided consent can be obtained from the authorities.
The statue will he in bronze, supported hy a column of appropriately
carved red granite. This week the
sculptor, Mr. Doyley Jones, submitted to the committee a model of
Webb, which the few who knew him
recognized as a very faithful likeness.
The idea of this memorial originated with Mr. Alfred Jonas, whose efforts to raise the necessary funds
have been at last crowned with success. The Earl of Lonsdale. Lord
Dcshorough and Viscount Hill arc
patrons of the fund.
To perpetuate the fame of Webb a
reduced facsimile of the statue in
oxidized silver, called the "Webb
Memorial Trophy." has been given
by the committee for a club team
swimming championship, as a floating prize. It has been won for the
first time bv lbe Wigan team.
A Webb ' memorial tablet ■ will
shortly be placed iu the church at
Coalhrookdale, in which Webh worshipped, and a shield given to the
boys of tho Conway traiiiimr ship for
a team race, It was on the Conway
that Matthew Webh served his apprenticeship as a sailor, and the boys
were among the first to acknowledge
his Channel swim with Hie gift of a
binocular gloss on September lflth,
1875.
Webb was on lhe Conwav school
frigate from 18fi0 to ix<!2, A little
while ago a memorial drinking fountain was erected at Dawlev.
Webb, it will be remembered, made
his first appearance as a swimmer ou
Julv 'i, 1875, when he swam from
Blackwall to Oravesend (10 miles 2
furlomrs) in 1 hrs. 52 min. -11 sec.
On Julv 20, 1875, he swam from
Dover to Ramsgate (18 miles). He
failed to swim the Channel on Aug.
12, 1875, but on August 31 and 25
of the same year, he succeeded in
crossing from Dover to Calais in 21
hrs. 15 min. He was drowned in an
attempt to swim the Niagara
Rapids on Julv 21, 1883.

Bengough, the Canadian cartoonist, is said to he an all-round entertainer, and one of the most versatile
artists on the concert platform. lie
makes his cartoons ou a big white
paper pad in colored chalks. As he
draws he relates humorous stories,
recites funny little poems of his own
composition, and never allows the
minutes to drag. The "Otago
Dailv Times" comments thus, "Judging by the reception accorded him by
his audience last evening, it may he
safely said that Bengough, before his
season here is ended, will have become a popu.ar entertainer indeed,
lie is cartoonist, comedian, poet, reciter, singer, philosopher all in one,
and one feels from the moment that
he appears on the stage that be possesses in an unusual degree the power lo get into sympathy wilh and
please a gathering of people. He
bus a powerful bead, a strong mobile
race, a ready smile, aud a delightful
accent. lie i.s obviously a man who
has closely studied men, and knows
Inimately their little whims and
peculiarities and weaknesses, and il
is as obvious that he loathes cant
ami htimbllg, Ile has an incxhausU
j idle fund of anecdote, and he is as
j pleased with his own jokes as is the
audience—and that indicates much.
He is, above and beyond all, preeminent in the art of lbe cartoonist.
I Without fuss or noise, he begins to
; draw quickly firmly and rapidly.
1 and as he works he talks in the
cleverest and quaintest wav imagiu-
| able, and the laughing audience
I strains forward to catch everv word,
; for Bengough is a very subtle humor-
I ist, and meanwhile the picture
I grows with incredible rapidity."
j Bengough opened his Australian
! tour in Sydney last May. Since
then be lias received unanimous
praise from the press, while the public have shown their appreciation to
such an extent that instead of a four
months tour, ns originally planned
liis tour bas been extended to seven
months, thus giving New Zealand an
opportunity of hearing the brilliant
Canadian. A Brisbane critic speaks
of Bengough thus: "Bengough! That
title is sufficient. There is ojilv one
man who combines the best humor ot
Mark Twain with the lightning
celerity nnd verisimilitude of the
best cartoonists. Every moment
that he is on the stage the audience
is regretting that it has laced itself
up so tightly before leaving home.
Everv apparently careless dash of
the crayon means a fresh Peal of
laughter, and between the strokes,
tliere is the droll humor, refined and
subtle. Then, too, apart from bis
ability with crayons, he has an inimitable faculty for impersonation, and
is an admirable mimic and raconteur
besides possessine a vcrv useful vocal
organ, which be uses with irreat effect and humor in his musical burlesques."
Bengough will appear in the Cranbrook Auditorium oii December 15th.
Admission 50c; reserved seats 75e.
MOYIE  MINING NOTES.
A man who bas a varied experience
in most of the prominent mining
camps in the west, went across the
lake the other day and was shown
through tbe properly ot the Aurora
Mining & Smelting company. Atter
making n thorough inspection ot all
thc workings he came awav fully
convinced that in a very short time
there will be another big shipping
mine to aid the famous St. Eugene
in the building up of Movie, says thc
Movie Leader.
The Aurora mine has over 1500 feet
ot tunnels driven. The lower tunnel is now in 350 feet, with only
200 feet vet to go, or ahoul 30 days-
work, when they will tap the ledge.
This is the ledge which shows such
a fine quality of ore in the upper
workings.
In the upper tunnel thev have in
sight aliout 50,000 tons ot first class
milling ore. At present all that is
required is a concentrator when the
mine will at once he on the list ot
shippers. Not long since a carload
of ore was shipped from tbis property to   thc smelter at Trail to      be
treated, ami the returns were   most
satisfactory to the owners.
Two machine drills arc running
constantlv, and fifteen men are on
the payroll. The men are paid on
the 15th of each month, and receive
approximately $1500, or an average
of $100 to a man.
A new    blacksmith   shop has been
built lately, and also a bimkhoiise, so
that the    men     will be comfortably
housed during the winter.

dorsation of the Moral and Social
Reform Council of Canada, to mitigate the evils of race track (rambling
and to wipe out gambling as a business, in this eountrv came up Tor its
second reading lale in the afternoon
Until 11 p.m. thc principle of the bill
was discussed I" a full house. Expressions of opinion cam* Irom num
bers fruiu all sections ot 'he counts some hear til v approving of the
hill, some doubting its expediency or
elTectiveness in being able tu stami
out a tendency apparently Inherent

members declared that the evils ol
race track eamhllnc weir over-emphasized and the actual conditions
were not nearlj so bad as was made
tn appear bv the advocates of drastic
reform. Some declared thai the bill
went too far and would kill the laudable sport of horse racing, and others declared that the hill only touched the fringe of fumbling evil inasmuch as it did not apph' to stock
gambling, bridge and other devices

practically all agreeing that a reasonable measure ol relorm in the

playing billiards in a trulv wonderful
style. Age, of course, has robbed
him of some of bis ability, but lie
is slill a marvel. No one plays
exactly like bim, and at times his delicate touch, his brilliant execution,
the rapidity with which he scores,
makes one wonder whether he cannot
still hold bis own with the younger
school.
British polo players seem to be
quite confident of winning back the
American cup, which tlicy lost this
season. It has been figured out that
tbe cost of accomplishing- this feat
will be 5100,000. This sum is made
up of the transportation and living
expenses of five or six players with
several ponies apiece and an army of
grooms. The finest English polo
ponies cost anywhere from $1,000 to
$1,500 apiece. The hotel expenses of
the team, the board and lodeing of
the ponies and attendants, and the
cost of equipment would hrin" the
total up to the amount stated. It
is thought that tbe team would have
to have at least two months' residence and practice in America before
being thoroughly accustomed lo the
ground. This will irivc the uninitiated an idea of the costliness of
polo—at least when it is indulged in
bv international experts.
The M. C, C. cricket team now
touring in South Africa will nlav in
all seventeen matches, including five
tests, the first of which bceins on
New Year's dav at Johannesburg.
South Africans are none too confident
of meeting with success, accordinir to
a despatch from Cape Town, which
says: "South Africans In cricket
here are sounding n note of warning
and In the course or beating up thc
probables for our representative
honors the discovery has been made
none too soon that the great names
f the ll)05-li heroes who battered in
the reputation of the last M.C.C.
team are something In the wav of a
contrast to what exists todav. It
is when we come to consider thc
younger men that we feel that South
Africa does not stand where it did."
On the evidences of the past season
and the opinion of mishlv men ol
cricket the South African team for
the first test match will be as follows: Sinclair, Faulkner, Noursc,
Voglcr, Schwartz, Gordon, White,
S. J. Snooke, Zuicli, A, Dillord,
Commaille, and Campbell. There is
little hope that Voglcr will recover
the form which caused him to be
hailed in England as probably the
greatest bowler in the world, hut
there is a very fair amount ot confidence in the other googlie merchants.
Faulkner and Schwarz. If these get
knocked about thc remaining tour arc
readv to fill the breach, and in thc
other tests—if reiiuired—there are
Kotze, Whitehead, Baumgartner and
Samuel.vm for purposes of experiment.
It is generally feared and regretted
that the King has little or no chance

Owing, perhaps, to the recent provincial elections, very little attention
has so far been given to the Important! question of next vear's municipal
council. At the present; stage io!

again accept nomination for the

unanimous opinion of Cranbrook ratepayers that during hlfl term of office. Mayor Fink '-is scned the citv
faithfully and efficiently, and. we believe, the great majority of ratepayers would welcome the opportun-
ity to secure his services for another
year. Mavor Fink's term of ollice
has heen signalized hv a sane, businesslike administration of civic affairs, li is quite probable that
there an- some who would claim that
in some respects he has not been
sufficiently drastic in his rulings,
in.:, aftor all. a policy of moderation, firmly enforced, as has been tho

is, in ihe long run, productive of the
besl results Mavor Fink has given

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS
Kaik next month Cranbrook citizens, in common wilh those id uther
cities throughout Uie nrovinco will

council. So far, apparently, very
Hale consideration has been given
this subject, hut it is oue that
merits ihe earnest attention of every
ratepayer. Mayor Fink, in tho
course of a conversation with a
Herald representative, intimated
quite plainly lhat he had uu inten-
i inn of .seeking re-election. Consequently a candidate for the mayoralty has tu he selected. Whether or
nut alt or any of the present aldermen intend to stand for re-election
Uie Herald has not been advised, bul
il is manifestly time that some
steps were taken to canvass the citv
for eligible and    capable candidates.
SEASONABLE ADVERTISING.
The leading holiday season of the
year is jusl before us. lt is the
unlv real holiday when retail merchants in all lines are overwhelmed
wiib business—if they properly prepare for it. Ami that is just the
point wc wish here to emphasize. Gel
ready early. Plan largely. Make
everything attractive and—advertise.
Advertise well. Advertise difierentlv
t liaii heretofore and not as your fellow merchant. Procure sonic useful
article that can he given to the women ami children outright, or by the
use of Iree purchase tickets. Plan
well ami do not impose auy impossible conditions—make it easy to
obtain auy article used us premium. Also gel the cream of the
liusiiiess by heing well in the advance with seasonable displays. Not
prematurely early, but have advertising plans and copy ready by the
time the goods are on display.
Su often docs il occur that retailers defer doing what thev consider a
good move toward publicity, for the
apparent lack of time or further consideration, thai much profitable business is lost. Thu merchant who do-
velops lhe faculty of cleaning up each
matter which comes before liim for
attention and getting it oil his mind
iil once enjoys a big advantage over
the one wlio has permitted himself
to become accustomed to putting oil
mailers from time to time iu the belief that tomorrow he will have
more time to attend tu things than
he has today. It is not always
possible to take linal action prompn
on the various problems which arise
in the life of everv business man, and
iu lhe majority of cases a decision
iim he arrived at on most points
now as well as tomorrow or next
week. If vou have never made any
determined effort to acnuiro this
excellent habit of taking definite and
prompt action on each matter which
comes up in the regular routine of
husiness, it will be well worth vour
while tn irive sume thought to the
question now.

CITY BAND CONCERT
Cranbrook has good reason to be
proud of ils city hand. The conceit
lhe\ gave in the Auditorium last
on Tuesday evening marred by the
every respect, save, perhaps, ia thi1
mailer of the heating arrangements
of the hall, something fur which the
bandsmen, doubtless, wi re not to
blame, The management of the
Auditorium cannot learn too quicklj
that if thev want "omi attendances
at entertainments during the winter
mouths, thev cannot loo speedilv
lake steps to have thc hall prop r
healed. Much of the pleasure of a
really excellent musical urogram was
on Tuesdav evening married by the
intense cold. The program provided
for lhe occasion was sufficiently
varied to satisfy the most exacting
ami to elve ample scope to the
talents of the bandsmen ami their
capable leader, Mr. F. K. Corrison.
Perhaps their most finished performance was in the selection of the
latest musical hits from New York,
including "Moon Bird," "I Want
Somohodv io Plav With." "Dear Old
Dear," "Daisies Won't Tell," "I
Wish I Had a Girl," "Mv Pony
Hov " etc. There were other selections that possibly pleased the
greater part of the audience more,
but iu the above mentioned selection
Conductor Corrison appeared to have
his men mure thoroughly at his command and the execution throughout
was admirable.
A verv pleasing feature of the concert was the appearance of Mrs. A
B. Macdonald, whose several solos
delighted the audience. Cranbrook
has always been fortunate in tbe possession of considerable musical
talent, but Mrs. A, B. Macdonald is
au acquisition of whom any city
might be proud. She is possessed of
a line, carefully cultivated voice,
which she uses to best advantage.
Each of her selections was warmly
encored. Mr. It. T. Brvmner is a
constant favorite with Cranbrook
audiences and his selections on Tuesdav evening simply served to
strengthen the bold he has on Craubrook music lovers.
A dance followed the concert,
which some fifty couutes uarticipated
until the carlv mornimr hours.
The cite hand provided a splendid
evening's entertainment and merited
an ever larger patronage than was
extended to it. A first-class band
is no small asset to any community
and Cranbrook certainly has good
reason to lie proud of its band, under
the leadership of Conductor F. E.
Corrison.
Mr. II. C. Salmon filled the part of
accompanist very satisfactorily.

Yc old firm of Heattie Ac Atchison
have done themselves proud this
year. They have a great stock, and
as Mr. Heattie said:
"I have heen buying Xmas gooiis

vear I am not onlv satisfied but am
proud nf the large range of artistic
goods we arc displaying. There is
only one thine; to be feared ami that

BY A DREAMER.
It is the circumstances ami environments of life that have much to do
with downing many a young man who
has started out in life with the
brightest prospects of success, but
who has too often said, "I don't
care."
We allow little difficulties, often
imaginary ones, that would vanish
at the "slightest show id resistance,
to deter us from doing many things
both great and small, the memories
uf wliicli would bring US our sweetest joys in after years.
' will find au interested listener, willing and anxious to learn all you can
j teach her on the   subject    ot family
; finances, ami although she may do   a
■little qiiiL-t weeping belore the inter-
■ view is ended, they will   be tears ol
1 joy she    sheds—that     at last, atter
years   of waiting   and   hoping   you
will come to realize   that   she     is
your friend and   may he your helper,
instead ot the child like   which   you
have treated her by shutting her   up
like an oyster when she ventured   to
ask u question any    way relevant to
liusiiiess    matters,     and   studiously
avoiding ia    conversation   with her,
everything connected with that greal
mystery.

Many of us can unfold the pages ol
memory and read again ihe losing
words ol own own sainted mothers.
We sec again the losing look in hot
eyes. Wo almost heal again the
gentle accents ol her voice and WC
feel, even through the lapse ol years,
I ic i Influence around us.
A good deed done is not a thing
completed and finished; a good thihg
done is nothing less than an emlluss
scries of good things set iu motion,
A kindly service rendered is not infrequently far-reaching. A cup oi
Id water to a fumisliiiig life may
eatc many mountains of joy. A
llower brought to a chamber ol
sorrow may set in motion many
agencies of the soul. Ministration
lu a bird of wounded wing may
start voices of song that otherwise
might never have been heard. A
tear wiped awav may cause a passing through thc clouds into the region of light.
Young man, beware of thc first
oath and tho lirst vulgar utterance,
tlie first cigarette, the lirst "lass ot
wine, the lirst glass of beer, the
fitst mingling with evil companions.
You may think you are strong
enough to indulge in these and bread
away from them at your will, but
vou "never made a greater mistake in
all vour life. Kadi ono is like an
octopus. They will gradually wind
their arms around you and death
is the onlv thine; strong enough to
tear you from their deadly embrace.
Unto those who arc really attempting to make thc world better for
their living in it, how much they
need a word nt encouragement, and
how few thev receive, even bv
those who know it. -Manv feel their
hallowed influence, hut how slow to
praise it; many realize their works
of goodness, yet grow jealous ot our
development of amiability ami grace.
It is not tor the fellow who docs
nothing but read fine hooks and hear
fine music to call himself genial and
harmonious. lie simply reflects and
re-echoes the influence brought to
bear upon him. But take the woman whose life is spent on the warpath, who never has thc time for
profitable reading, whose tastes and
dreams and hopes went under long
ago, like toy boats in a gale, and let
her lie happy and laughter-loving and
gay, even at long intervals, and
there is a heroine for you! Some
day she is going to have a good
time, never you doubt it. And
whether it comes here or yonder its
fullness and completeness of joy
will shine away forever the memory
of life's cloudy days and grewsome
battles.
I DON'T CARE.
"I don't care!" How otten we
hear young people say this! My
young friend, you ought to care-
aye, you will cafe, perhaps, when it
is too late. "Don't care" has ruined thousands. It has filled jails,
and almshouses, and murderers'
graves; it has wrung the hearts of
parents, and brought deep blushes to
a sister's cheeks; it has broken
them; manv partake of the blessings they bring, yet in their enjoyment of them forget the giver altogether. Learn to be appreciative,
and by a little word of love, kindness and encouragement, help others,
and it will bring sunshine into your
own life and gladness in all your
ways,
Thc happiest days of our childhood
were those that seemed pleasantcst
tn our dear mother. Kindness and
politeness are indispensible to a
happy home. There is no place on
earth so delicate and sensitive as
home, its fires are easily kindled, its
flowers are easily bruised. Here
our hearts wear no covering, things
that in the outside world wo would
pass liy in sport, at home wouhl
would wound us to thc quick. One
hitter word would mar tho happiness
of home for a whole day, while pleasant words ami aets will bring peace
and pleasure. It is too often the
case that kind words and courteous
manners are reserved until "company
Is In," and only cureless manners
and sometimes harsh cross words
used in   the everyday home life.
As enre and nttention to a garden
is rewarded willi choice flowers nnd
fruits, so the care, love, and attention given tn a wife gives us choice
children am] happier homes.
Advice is cheap, ymi know, and
men, of nil created beings, like it the
- least. Mul whut if it prove a mat-
1 ter ot dollars and cents? Ynu all
like money and appreciate Its Importance as a factor of the happy
hnme. So If we tell you how every
| man of you, who has ever tried tlie
experiment, can save from fifteen to
! twentv per cent of his expenses during the coming year, you will probably listen. Now, that is just what
we mean to do. It is simple ami
easv and sure to work. Just tell
vour wife all about vour business af-
I fairs. Show her vour balance
; sheet, let her study It, and it she
doesn't know how, iust teach her.
I You think it will make her feci
hadlv; that it. will make her blue.
Well, that will depend entirely
thc wav In which voo dn it. Tf t-ou
begin by declaring lhat there is not
another family In town runs such
hills as yours, and that there is more
] money spent for the least show
j about the house than any other place
vnu enn find, she will feel hurt, nnd
If she has not bad all the spirit
taken out ot her by your unfair
i treatment, she will resent it a doz-
j en times a day, till you confess that
vnu have played thc bully and the
fool.

progress of the disease.
Some time ago one of the llmrers ot
his left hand was removed as the
result of X-rav exoeriments.
antl in February last three
lingers of the right
hand were amputated. I n consequence of representations made on
his behalf at that time, a Kill" Edward's compassionate grant of
£200 was made to him.
The disease, despite the operation,
gradually spread up the arm, and
Dr. Peace Gould, ot Cavendish
Square, amputated the limb above
the elbow. Mr. Cox bore the operation as well as could be expected,
having regard to his general condition, as the ravages ol the peculiar
disease have not been confined only
to hands and arms. The operation
was performed at Mr. Cox's residence in Crlckctfield Road.
It is claimed ou behalf of Mr. Cox
that, as one of tht* pioneers of the
X-ray apparatus, he taught its uses
lo a numher of medical men, and
thnt Dr. Hall Edwards, another of
the martyrs to scientific research in
its application, was one of his first
pupil a, i
Mr. Cox now lies in his Clapton
home, the pitiful wreck of-a man
who had paid bis whole existence fur
the investigation of one of tin- deadly
mysteries ol science.
The ravages which the terrible
disease bas made upon bim cannot be
described. Besides the right arm
and the middle nuger of his left hand,
his (ace and throat have been attacked, llis sufferings during the
last six vears are scored heavily upun his face.

THE WORK OF A LIBERAL I'AKIY
How true il is that liberal ideas
are the lite blood of a Liberal party
illustrated by the situation in
(ireat Britain. The Liberal parly,
wliich a few monllis ago was reported to he showing evidences id decay,
is now noted to he full of vigor aiid
vitality. The secret is nol far lu
seek. The Lords were slowly sapping ils life by taking the nerve out
of every bill sent up to them from
the lower house, willi the consequence
that Mr. Asquith and his colleagues
were made to appear futile and
abortive. In the presence uf this
apparent weakness the tariff advocates become still more active aud
aggressive, aud tliere can he no
doubt that thev wen* able to crush
the spirit id free Irade that still lingered in the I nii.nist ranks by push
ing the inference that the fon-e which
was weakening ami disintegrating the
ranks of their opponents was the
popularity of the policy of tariff re
form.
Mr. Lloyd-George showed himself
to he a true tactician bv creating an
issue that could not he disposed ot
by mere mending and cobbling in the
upper house. Tliere is justification
in thinking, moreover, that this was
not a mere piece ot tactics. Tin
budget is Liberalism's latest word
on the condi lion-of-the-people question, to use a phrase thai has been
known at least since D'Israeli's day.
A Liberal charged with the government of (ireat Britain would not be
worthy of bis name if he failed to
wrestle manfully with thc problems
with which be is face lo face. One
citizen owns 1,300,000 acres of the
limited area of the United Kingdom,
while other citizens, to the number
of 100,000 or more, have nowhere to
lay their heads, and two months ago
a million were reported on the public
relief list. A Liberal party that
could be at peace with itself in face
of such circumstances would be
sailiti" under false colors.
What has thrilled and vitalized Liberalism in Britain is the drastic and
courageous attempt to deal with the
evils of society. Because we cannot
abolish them all is no reason why
those which lie within the scope of
legislative enactment or the organizing energy of the community sliould
not be reformed or abolished, This
is the business of a Liberal party,
and when il is not concerned about
such matters it has no call to he in
ollice. Certain classes of the community supply their own force and
organization to secure their privileges and advantages. The great unorganized masses have no sueh machinery for attaining their aims. Indeed, for the most part they do not
know what tbeir aims are. The only
thing they know for certain Is tjiat
there is a submerged tenth, practically hopeless and homeless, and
above them a far greater number in
dailt danger of falling into the same
abyss. The real work of a Liberal
party is the opening of the gate of
opportunity to this weltering mass,
which bas begun lo question whether
it is ordained in (1 oil's providence
that they and their children nud their
children's child ten should remain
helpless and hopeless. It would he
foolish to shut the eyes to the difficulties of the task. There is the danger of making it still more helpless
and hopeless bv injudicious measures.
If it is clearlv perceived that it is
not the work of a vear but of a
generation, and that the effort to
raise and humanize this mass must
be steady and unwearying, the day
mav como when all who are neither
idle nor vicious mav hope to live
simply aud sanely and comfortably,
and when no decent mau or woman
will look forward to old age as a
period of slow starvation, of indignity, of ingratitude, and of everything else that makes death itsell
welcome. To brim' about tlie nearest possible approach to th's irnld r
nge should he the unceasing purpose

TORTURED HY PILES,
COULD NOT     REST! COULD NOT
WORK' COULD NOT PLAY!
ZAM-BUK   imoroiiT
LIEF!
RK-
Mr. Julius Glacier, of Denbigh,
Ont., says: "I was so tortured hy
piles that I could not get ease
whether lying down, sitting, or
standing. The ailment robbed me
of strength, of appetite, and o( all
desire to live! I had suffered so Ion-'
and so acutely that I came to think
there was no ease for me, hut one
day I louml out lhat I was
wrong!
"I was told that Zam-Huk cured
piles, and that this halm was altogether diffcrenl to ordinary ointments, scores of which I have proved
useless for so Imd a case as mine
was. I got a supply of Kam-Huk,
ami Iregan lo use It regularly.
Without     going   into unnecessary
detail, in a   few    weeks I found my-
If cured. I owe mv cure to Zam-
Huk entirely, ami I trust my experience will lie the means ot lead-
ng other sufferers to try this great
herbal balm."
Nothing need In* added to this
plain, powerful testimony save one
question—il you    suffer like Mr. (1 la
cier did, why not get relief from tbe
same source as he did?
Zam-Huk—as lie truly savs—is
something ciifleretit" to the ordinary ointments and salves. It is a
powerful combination of healing uud
soothing herbal essences. No mineral astringents or poisons; no impure animal fats.
It is a proved cure for inflamed
areas (as is piles) erysipelas, ec-
-eiiia, ulcers, sores, abscesses, cold
cracks, chapped hands, hums, cuts,
scalp sores, and all skin injuries and
diseases. It is the most suitable
balm for children's rashes. All

CORRESPONDENCE
Editor the Herald:
The article which appeared in the
Cranbrook Herald, for October 28th,
headed, "('rime, Murder, Rape,
Elc," has caused a great deal ol annoyance to the inhabitants of Cranhrook, and has deeply pained many.
As president of thc W.C.T.U. atid
therefore oue who conies in daily
and constant touch with many peoiu,
in the district, I cannot help writing
and saying that I share the surprise
and pain that this article has caused
in the hearts ot many of our best
citizens. 1 think it your unnamed
correspondent had had one spark of
manliness left, he would have refrained from dragging an Episcopalian
rector in thc mire.
Then, again, whv did he tackle the
women of the W.C.T.U. iu the manner he did? Thus proving again he
had no principle, or sense of honor.
He certainly took a great deal of
trouble to place us in three different
positions on thc front page of the
Herald, thus giving us the prominence we were unable to obtain owing
to the monopolizing of the front
page by the whiskey men. If, as
you would have us believe, more
whiskey is sold under prohibition
law, why did your whiskey men take
the trouble to go to Victoria on
January last to a closed door meeting to oppose anv measures being
taken by the uovernment in favor of
local option? and why are the electors receiving circulars urging them
to oppose local option? Also givintr
false statements by "Abraham Lincoln." I have a paper in my pus-
session which proves in is.vi Abraham Lincoln was for prohibition,
when he said, if prohibition of slavery is good for the black man, prohibition of liquor is good for thc
white man. He said: "The liquor
trallic was like u cancer eating out
the vitals of the people."
It is hard to believe there is nothing in prohibition, when we realize
the money that is hcinc spent bv the
liquor people to oppose us. I want
tu inform your unnamed correspond-1
ent that the meetings of the W. C.
T- l". are open and above board. Our
meetings are announced iu t In ee

the meetings, he will find tin ims verv

again, he would get nu whiskey and
not even the tea he mentions the

Hut he might get a warm reception, which might prove too comfortable tor him. I would like to
have thanked your correspondent
personally, hut as this is impossible, owing to nu name, 1 must
he content to do so through the
medium of the paper, in which he
tried to hold us up to ridicule

Nose" or one ot the R.N.H.. Let j
one add iu conclusion, it would have I
been more to his credit to have used

of tender age, who freauenl the pool
room—boys trom 11 vears un—you

set to work to get a "bvlaw" passed
