KiiKrosses Kiddles In Happy
Morning Sessions
The city lias tliis week bet It under
the Kl-oll of the 1>1k brown tent. For
several years now Chautauqua hus
been mi annual Institution in the life
ut Crunbrook, a festival week looked
forward to eagerly, and talked of the
whole year, lt does not appear to be
something that glitters und scintillates
from afar but whose brightness fades
when approached- Therein lies iti.
magic. Usually, though it may appear to start out with something of
an exceptionally attractive nature, interest and enthusiasm gains Impetus
as tiie week progresses, and the audiences are brought to the events of
the last two nights or so in a frame
of mind that looks for something pretty good in the way of entertainment,
and let it be said to tlie credit of
Chautauqua that lt seldom falls to
make good.
The managing superintendent in
juarge of the Cranbrook Cliautauqua
thia year is Mr. Howard T. Hill. He
is one of eleven such officials engaged
on each of the two circuits that are
covering Western Canada this season. The talent that is appearing
here this week has been stopping off
through the Crows Nest country, the
two irevious stops being at Blalrmore
and Fernie. From this point they
- take a long jump across the line to
Bonners' Ferry. [The superintendents, however, remaining the entire
week, make much longer jurers, going on automatically to the eleventh
town ahtad on the circuit. Thus Mr.
Hill came here from Gleichen. Alberta, and from here goes on to Virginia-Springs, Wyoming-
In conversation with the Herald Mr.
Hill expressed himself as well pleus-
' with the spirit lit had so far nf,.
among the workers on the committee.
He Is naturally heart nnd -soul a
Chautauqua man, and relates how
some of the smaller towns through*
out the west stem to have ;i more enthusiastic time and make more of the
event than some of the larger centres- The town of Stoughton, Sask..
for Instance, with a population of well
under one thousand, achieved a record in ticket sales, amounting to almost two thousand dollars this season, whicli lias only beon beaten by
tbo city of Calgary. Thus It Is apparent that It is not mere numbers
that are required to put over a stic-
ctsrfui Chautauqua, bui rather n plenitude of thc right spirit. According
to Mr. Hill It the Intention next year
to arrange the circuits so that the
Canadian west will havt one entirely
its own.
No Chaut.'tiiinia would be considered
complete, of course,  without  Its organized junior work.     TTils year the'
work has been In Charge of Miss ("nr

city clerk to arrange a meeting be-

On behalf of tiie Durlck estate Mr.
J. V- Armstrong wrote suggesting thc
ionsoltdatloh of arrears of taxes, apparently to be able to keep the property out of the tax sale. Tho city
iouncll decided not to allow this, but
:o let tlie law take its course, at the
tame time guaranteeing fair treatment when effort is made to meet the
ibligatious outstanding.

into lhe dim past to say very much
about the ratepayers' meeting held

Oh ratepayers in attendance, and for
the city council Aldermen, Mackinnon, j

Tlie ouija board first occupied the

It ls satisfactory to know that financially Chautauqua Is going over

ln ticket sales, and owing to the large
attendance at some of thc performances lt seems possible there will be
an appreciable surplus resulting, a
highly gratifying result, and one upon which the local committee deserves congratulation.

Flowers also drew attention to the
ontpaiutlvo experiences of the cities

the former n company was operating
and power had gradually risen up to

contracted to supply the city of Fernle, nnd was thought lo be ready to
enter into definite negotiations with
this city, having offered power in bulk

next year was mentioned as a tentative dnte when thc concern would

more wonderful, however, was his
statement that anything that can be
accomplished electrically hy the use of
wires, can now bo done without, employing the principle underlying thc
comparatively now well known wireless telegraphy. He showed with

of getting power from Bull River, for

Klrharil  Posey Campbell.,    tht*
"Western Riley" Gives Fine
Program  From Poems
It seems a pity that one's acquaintance with men of the Richard Posey
Campbell type is of such a fleeting nature. He comes for an hour or so,
appears on the platform before us,
and is gone- Vet has he gone cmn-
.pletely? Is there no impression left
with us from hearing his homely lines
on homely people? "Just plain folks
Just common folks, Just folks — like
you and me" — with these Is Mr-
Campbell concerned.
This man, the James Whltcomb Riley of the west, was brought up in
southern Oregnn. in a real rural environment That is tlie atmosphere
he has so well preserved in his poems.
There Is nothing strained or unnatural about the pictures of life he presents, no undue glamour o» over-imaginative characteristics that would
tend to create an artificial atmosphere. They are the folks themselves he presents to us, tlieir emotions,
crude perhaps, sometimes a little narrow, but always with ultimate emphasis on the best that is to be found
in even the humblest.
No one, of course, can be expected
to give a rendering of any verse with
Just the same completeness ns the
author himself. No one could be
expected In Include in an Interpretation of Mr. Campbells' works all
the little Inflections, modulations and
variation;. In tone and voice that went
to make up the gamut of emotions
the poet harped on. Whether as the
young hopeful straddling the fence
to watch his father "wean the spotted calf;" ns the stockman of former
times who was always ready to berate the sheep man; or as the father
whose heart was crabbed by sorrow,
till the fountain of youth was again
uncovered, Mr. Campbell was ln all
the pictures portraying nature true
to life, with their counterparts to be
seen nround us every day.
Perhaps somo day Mr. Campbell's
written works will come Into wldrr
circulation, and reach the hands of
soma who heard lllm here on Tues
day afternoon- They will be read
with added Interest, an Interest stimulated by an acquaintance, however
Two Programs on Monday He-
veal Same Sweet Charms
of Bygone Days
Even if they weren't quite the sume
identical old-fashioned girls that pre-
.enttd a program here a few weeks
ago, the memory of which stilt lingered with us, they were eminently
uccessTUl in preserving the same
weet atmosphere of captivating
pharm that pervaded the program at
(hut time- It made the old folks sigh
lor 'ht. "good old days," and told the
j gun per generation of this duy thut
thero were good times to be had lu
grandma's duy. even if they were of
a slightly more sedate stamp than
what seems to be called for today.
The Old Fashioned Girls presented
ihe opening program ut Chautauquu
uu Monday afternoon, und also gave
a prelude In thc evening. Their costumes were appropriate to a by-gone
duy. und one was brought to ask them-
elves whether as fashion has changed
during tho subsequent years it has
after all brought anything fn its development that could present more
, Icturesquc effects than the crlno-
.tines, pantalets and coiffures that wero
in togue in the days of fifty year
ago. And then the stately and
courtly manners of those times wns
also well preserved in tho demure
and entirely ingenuous demeanor of
the old fashioned girls with their
sweeping curtsys and the dainty minuet —. how much in contrast to the
modern jazz that could be visualized

syncopated brand of alleged music —
even though It wus overwrought —us
one of her seven variations of "Old
Hlaek Joe." Yes, thoso must huve
been the days of real heart romances,

The .personnel of tue party hus undergone some change since their former program was piesented here. On
Monday the artistes were:
Miss Helen Grace Sheppard, manager, and 'ceUist-

Vancouver Men Talk Over Impressions Gained on Trip
Made Last Month
The trip taken last month by members of the Vancouver Board of Trade
through the Kootenays is likely to result in greater co-operation between
the business meu of Vancouver aud
those of the interior, judging by the
tone of the speeches heard at a dinner
field a few days ago by those member:
6f the Vancouver Board wlio made the
trip. Twenty-seven of the thirty-
three were gathered at Hotel Vancouver, the chair being taken by Mr. Duncan McDonald, of K liy, Douglas &
Co., at whose instigation the dinner
was held. Mr. Biake Wllcou, president of tlie Vancouver Board of
Trade, guve a short account of his

aud paid tribute to tht attractions and
possibilities in mining and agri< ll-
tiirc of tlie Kootenays, saying that he
had no doubt that 111 tlie course of a
few years the country would be settled with a prosperous population.
A general discussion fallowed as to
ways and means of peri>etuuting the
good results achieved by tlie visit, and
many phases of tlie question were
touched upon by members.
Mr. J. I'. D- .M.ilkIn suggested that
the labor question in the Interior pro-
vidid one means of accomplishing concrete results and suggested that each
of the members should advise any applicants for work of the opportunities in the Kootenays, supplying fuller
details than are given by the employment offices and thus encouraginc
the suitable allotment of employment to tin.-,, seeking it-
Mr. fottrell advocated urging the
government to the building of good

the country to petition the government
to proceed Immediately with the bull-
fling of this road.

this uuico Wednesday neon the current
weak lu nucule attention-
the city has in its own possession a complete plant ready to
deliver tlie goods as occasion
may demand. At such times
a bird in hand is worth two in
the bush, and whether it be a
breakdown, dispute over rates,
or whatever else might arise,
the city is likely to lind the possession of the plant an invaluable asset.
In the meantime during the
period the city must operate the
plant, there are going to be
many who will watch with distrust thc progress of things.
This ought to put the city council on its mettle to get out of It
tlie best possible service at the
minimum rate. Users generally should not forget that they
were faced by a situation that
meant tlieir light and power
were going to cost more anyway, whether the city took over the plant, bonused the company, or whether the company
got an increase in rates. Whatever way the situation was worked out it meant paying more
for the light ultimately. Now,
with Ihe city soon to take possession, the ratepayers will at
least have a tangible asset to
show for their money instead of
a lot of receipts on file for hard
cash paid out.
Money—ready money is an essential in every
line of business—mercantile or farming. Wise
farmers build up Savings Accounts, which
enable them to purchase for cash.
A Savings Bank Account with this Bank
assures ready money when needed. Interest

and address ol' Uie writer. The rub
uiiiuue of no exception.
The narrow majority by
which the electric light loan
by-law passed on Tuesday indicates that there was an appreciable opposition to thc scheme.
Some are heard to express surprise that the by-law carried at
all, others profess equal surprise thai so many opposed it.
Whichever way it. is looked at,
the by-law almost did- not carry. There waa some oppos'ilJou
developed at the eleventh hour
along lines which were not
discussed at all during the public meeting held on Saturday.
Only two arguments againtt
the purchase were advanced at
that time, and the}' did hot appear then to have any very extensive backing.
Now that the city is committed to the venture, however, even with a good number of people looking askance on it, there
is only one thing to do, namely,
just to go ahead and work
things out in such fashion as
will bring most benefit to the
ratepayers and the city at
large. No one expects the city
to drop immediately iuto the
habit of running a light plant,
and to produce results as if it
had been under the supervision
of the city for years. It takes
time lo collect data on running
costs, upkeep and so on. In the
meantime one thing has heen
made certain of to the place,
and that is a continuance of a
light and power service, which
the rejection of the by-law
would certainly have hazarded.
There are those who believe
this could have been brought
about liy other moans, but a
good many of these suggestions
presupposed that the electric
light company was under some
dire penalty not to close down,
which was not the case; or else
that Ihey were prepared lo accept some proposition of a more
or less temporary nature, until such time as the olty had an
arrangement completed In some
other direction possibly that
would mean a new source of
power. This was, of course,
expecting a little too much of
the light company as hard-
headed business men.
There is one phase of the
outlook that does not seem to
have been touched upon, and
yet seems worthy of taking into consideration. It is that if
at some future date there comes
the opportunity to get power in
bulk delivered to the city at
what seems an advantageous
rate there will be nothing In
the way of taking up with It,
and more than that, the besl
assurance the city could have
that, those favorable rates will

The world not being built along unanimous lines, there are
pros and cons to be heard on
the matter of Chautauqua. The
Herald devotes considerable of
its space this week to the sessions held in the big tent and
makes no apology for doing so,
believing that the fact of close
upon a thousand people gathering together twice a day for a
week means they are Interest
ed iu what is going on. In the
matter of programs, there is divergence as to what is held to
be choice, what just mediocre,
and what, if any, mere rubbish. It is safe to say that so
far as merit goes, most of the
program presented here so far
comes under the first category.
What little is left over may be
put under the second head, leaving nothing for the third.
Some take exception to Chautauqua on the ground that it
takes too much money out of
the community. It does take
a good sum away with it, but
not more after its whole week
of entertainment than a circus would expect to do after
a single day's show, and so far
as uplift goes,- no one will attempt to argue that a circus
will leave with a community
what" Chautauqua does. When
one meets Chautauqua men on
and off the platform there need
be no concern as to whether
they are lit (o be allowed to
have anything to do with the
moral shaping of your children's careers. They are, or they
wouldn't be there. Brilliant
lalent has before now been released by the management because they couldn't deport
themselves off the platform In
such a way as to gain respect
from Chautauqua patrons. A
few of their lecturers, for instance, may have originality,
may present some things iu a
light quite new to most people
who listen, but they may rest
assured that these views are
presented with the Idea of enlarging our vision on life, and
not for any sinister purpose.
Does the same assurance carry with the average circus or
road show that happens along?
To those whose enterprise
and willingness to assume the
real burden and the hard work
the coming of a Chautauqua entails has been manifest, the
community oweR a debt of gratitude for what has been done
In the past. If everyone was
willing to pitch in and help ae
they are called upon, Chautauqua would go along swimmingly, and with no unevenness In
the labor of It. The way Chautauqua has been patronized
this week indicates that lt ls
appreciated In the city and district, and perhaps If those who
have made themselves responsible for Its appearance from
year to year found themselves
supported a little more strongly by others willing to help and
take some of the responsibility
given them munitions lo attack with.

Newspaper Economics
The sensational rise in the cost of

newspaper much as the high cost of

thereof. As the prices of eatables,

luxuries that oiled the wheels of life,
until ut present most of us are fighting stiffly to obtain the bare necessities.—London Daily Chronicle.

No motorist, of course, deliberately
slaughters a porson on the road, and
some accidents are inevitable. Those
who drive on after racing down any

When the British troops entered
Detroit in August, 1812, the American general, Hull, and 850 of Ills
command fell into their hands. Sir
Isaac Brock had waged a fast war
aguinst the city and the result had
been a white flag asking for terms.
A capitulation had been arranged by
which the entire state of Michigan,
the port of Detroit, the "Adams" war
brig, with 2,500 troops nnd all their
valuable stores was surrendered to
the British commander. No prize
obtained wns of greater value than
the 2,500 stand of arms that were
captured. The army in Canada was
in soro need of the guns.
Brock soon found the Private Dean
who hnd been captured by the Americans when they tried to pass the
bridge Into Amherstburg wliere the
soldier was on guard. He had re-
fuesd to surrender when assailed by
the entire American force but had
boen captured by thc crowds that aB-
salled him. Brock called him out
and praised lilm before the Invaders
'and the British.

B. C. Lodge No. 1, of the Urand Exalted Order of the Ancient Sons of
America, has been organized iu Cranbrook.
East Kootenay is about oue-elght-
ieth ot British Columbia, yet It Is a
fact that Its timber reserves, if placed In a strip about one and a quarter
miles wide, would reach from tho Atlantic Coast to the Paciilc Ocean.
East Kootenay in round figures contains about 6,000 square miles.
Last Priday night, A. E. Watts,
while returning to his Palmer Bar
ranch met with a strange experience.
When about three miles from town he
heard a hissing soHud, accompanied py
a bright light, and he Immediately
found himself surrounded by what appeared to be numerous balls of lire,
apparently without substance other
than gas. His horse became frightened, nnd whinnying, nearly unseated
Its rider. The flame* ot light disappeared as quickly aa they came, but
whether it was tho falling trail of a
meteor or nol, Mr. Watts ls unable to
say, not being able to see anything
like a central body or nucleus from
which the fiery shower might have
emanated, nor did he hear anything
strike the ground. About that time
a very brilliant meteor passed over
Crunbrook at a very low altitude, and
was observed by Mes.rs. Taylor, Mc-
Mullin, Harry MoVlttle nnd others,
coming from the north to the souUi.
which would correspond with the direction from which Mr. Watts' unwelcome visitor came.

That it has been practically a complete fizzle has been intimated from
time to time during several months,
though no such admission Is to be

that seems to be lacking at the present time, and that it is hoped to make

Cut Brie
"Brier" Smoking Tobacco has become a
Canadian institution. More men smoke
"Brier" than any other tobacco in Canada.
It leads in quality—and leads in value.
Now "Brier" comes in new form—
Macdonald's Cut "Brier"—the same tobacco
—prepared under the Macdonald standards
established in 1858.
Still leading in value.   Macdonald's Cut
"Brier" gives more tobacco for the money
in the 1-12 lb. package for 15c—$1.80
per pound. PAGE   roc*

.Mtiling  Expert Thus Sizes Up
Situation — Some Alberta
Wheat to (ro via Coast
According to an estimate given out
last week at Winnipeg by W. A. Black,
managing director of the Ogllvle Milling Co., the wheat fields of Cannda
will this year yield from 225.000.000
to 250,000,000 bushels. Thla is a reliable estimate based upon reports the
company receives from its specially
appointed ageata throughout the west.
Comparod with last year's yield, this
will represent un Increase Of from
50.000,000 to 75.000,000 bushels.
According to Capt, T* H. Acheson,
general agricultural agent tor the province of-Alberta, much of tiio wheat
crop of Alberta, If not the bulk of It.
will be routed to overseas mafkotfl via
Vancouver and tho Panama (Jamil.
He has Just completed a tour of the
grain fields of the province and declares unhesitatingly that Alberta will
bo tho banner province of the west
Ela regards wheat yield. It will be as
high as 40 bushels per acre In some
parts, and the general average should
not bo less than 25 bushels. Thus Alberta's contribution to Canadian crops
will total about 80,000,000 bushels.
If the prediction proves true that a
good portion of Alberta's crop is going to bo moved out westward, and it
seems reasonable in view of the fact
that the immense terminal facilities
at Vancouver have never yet been tax-
d to tlieir real capacity, a good deal
of grain traffic will move over the
Crows' Nest Hue through Cranbrook
There aro of course three other channels through which the grain may also reach the Pacific seaboard, these
being the C. 1'. R. main line, the C. N-

16th. Tho commission, aftor the Initial sittings thero will proceed direct to tho coast and take evidence
there, and hold sittings in tho prairie
provinces on the return journey in October, so as to meet the convenience
of thoso whose farming operations
would render their attendance in September difficult. On the return journey a second meeting will also be held
In Winnipeg. Tho exact dates of the
sittings at other points will ho given
out In the near future."
The western Itinerary of the commission as at present outlined will include a Visit to Nelson. The proposed line of route through the west Is
as follows: Winnipeg. September 15;
Vancouver, Victoria, Nelson, Calgary,
Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Brandon, and back to Winnipeg.
"It is hoped that at the initial meet
ing In Winnipeg," Sir Henry concludes, "the broad outlines of the cases

Some Have Not Compiled With
Terms and Cannot Write
New Business
The following statement Is Issued
by the Canadian Superintendent of
"The Amendment to the Insurance
Act. 1917, respecting fraternal benefit societies, passed at the first session
of Parliament In 1919, came into
force on the 1st of January, 1920.
"The principal effect of this amendment Is to bring Within the Jurisdiction of the Insurance Act certain tra
lorual benefit societies which have
heretofore been einropl from its v o-
vltions. Foreign BocletleB, h'jro'o-
fore opcnitlr.fi in Canada under ko-
vineial jurisdiction, are hereafter
subject to the Insurance Act. Many
-of these societies were actuarially Insolvent. Some were not COlleotlDg
adequate rates even from new members.
"The amendment to the Act pro
vides that these foreign societies
shall be entitled to a license thereunder, provided tbey can furnish certificates of qualified actuaries that
they are actually solvent. If a society cannot furnish sucn ;i certificate
and If it has operated in Canada prior
to the coming Into force of the Act,
provision is made for a conditional
license, renewable until the year
1925, If it can establish to the satisfaction of the Department that the
contributions-payable by new members are sufficient to provide for the
benefits promised. Such license,
however, cannot be continued beyond
1025, unless the society ls by that
time actuarially solvent.
"The foreign socletlos heretofore

aro affected by these provisions ,m

The successful wintering of bees
often ascribed to luck, according
an expert of tho Experimental
Farm, who says Investigations car-
fed on ut the Central Experimental
Farm, Ottawa, during the past eight
years, show that there is very little
ground for this view. Of 348 colonies wintered during this period,
both ln the cellar and out-of-doors,
inly seven per cent, were lost, and
this loss wan ascertained In nearly
every case to be due to definite causes, the principle causes being unwhol-
sotne and granulated stores and starvation. Most of tbe colonies lost
from unwholesome stores did not die
outright but became so weak that
they had to be united to others.
The secret of success ln wintering
bees lies ln their proper preparation
This preparation needs to be begun
In July when lt is Important to see
that the colony contains a good, fer
tile queen, preferably one raised the
same year, which will raise a large
number of young bees In the late
summer months.
Each colony needs about 40 pounds
of wholesome stores for the winter
und early spring, and this should be
In thp hive hefore the end of September lu most places. Clover honey
and syrup made from refined not
brown) sugar are wholesome. This
yeur. owing to the high cost of refined sugar, ft may be hard to provide
sufficient good storeH. especially In
some parts of Ontario and Quebec
where the clover was killed last winter, and chances may have to be
taken with honey that the bees gather from other plants. Buckwheat
honey Is wholesome, but Home of the
honeys, for example, that come from
wild plants In the fall are inclined
to cause dysentry and death.
Whiter protection is very Important. If the befcs are to remain ottt-
:!de nn better protection can be given
them than (ho 4-colony case made
large enough to hold about four
Inches of packing consisting of sin
Ings or dried leaves a year oo more
old, around tho sides and beneath
the hives, and double this thickness
on top. The apiary must he well
If cellur wintering is followed, tho
bee cellar should he comparatively1
dry and It should bo well Insulated to
prevent much variation in tempera-
turn. For a few colonics In a cold
locality u hoarded-olT portion of the
basement of the heo-keeper's residence makes a good bee cellar nnd a
furnace In the basement Is an advantage.     K thn stores art wholesome
weather, tbe best temperature for the
bee is between 45 3iid 50 degrees F
If however, dysentry has developed,
the Higher temperature will cause
estlessness and a few degrees lower
will  be advisable.

Another objecting voice was beard
in lhe person of Mr. Drummond, who
asserted that that the city waB taking
on too much when a plant of half the
capacity and half the price would Oil
the wants of thc city. He also presented some ngures designed to rebut
the argument that the city could distribute power Itself and still reduce
Mayor Genest, on taking tlle chair,
guve a spirited defence of the attitude the council had taken up on the
mutter, saying they bad made the
best bargain possible with the com-
pany, and It was for the people to decide what they would do with it. He
personally thought that even If the
light plant had to be kept going by the
city at a slight loss, it was worth It
to have the light and the convenience
It brought.
J. A. Arnold, after setting forth the
fact that lighting,systems other than
electric would start Are insurance rat
os soaring, said that among other
points In favor of the by-law passing,
was that continuous light and power
was bo Indispensable at the hospital.

city. They had all paid dollar for

had been running the plant for the
good of the town generally. He stated definitely Ihat If the by-law went

to run on a bontiBlng basis; the lights
