Canada Will Help the Empire In Her Own Way
A good deal has been said ami
written as to what Canada should
do in ilir matter of Imperial naval
defence, Iml on the 80th Sir Wilfrid
Laurier announced the policy of tho
govoranient along these lines which
will lie supported, nut only hy those
agreeing wilh the premier, hut also
hv I hose who ure politically opposed
to liim. Sir Wilfrid's resolution was
as follows:
"Thai (his House fullv recognizes
Die duly ol the people of Canada as
ihey Increase iu numbers ami wealth
to assume iu larirer measure the responsibilities of national defence. The
Mouse rcallirins the opinion repeatedly expressed hy representatives ot
Canada that under the present constitutional relations between the Old
Country and the self-governing dominions, the payment of anv statetl
contribution to the Imperial treasury
for naval aud military purposes
would not, so far as Canada Is concerned, he a satisfactory solution of
the question of defence. That Houso
observed with satisfaction tbe reliet
afforded in recent vears to tbo
taxpayers of the United Kingdom
through the assumption bv the Canadian people of considerable military
expenditure, formerly charged to the
Imperial treasury.
"The House will cordially approve
of any necessary expenditure designed to promote the organization of a
Canadian naval service in co-operation and in close relation to the imperial navy along the lines sun^sied
bv tbe admiralty at the last imperial conference and ln full sympathy
with the view that the naval supremacy of Britain is essential to the
security of commerce the safety of
tlie Empire and the peace of the
"The House expresses its firm conviction that whenever the need arises
tbe Canadian people will he found
ready and willing to make anv sacrifice that is renuired to give the Im-
nerial authorities the most loval and
heartv co-nncration in every movement for the maintenance and thc
honor of thc British Empire."
Mr. Foster entered into the debate
ami the Premier continued, saving in
"But we are not to ho carried
away or stampeded from what has
been the settled policy and deliberate
course which we have laid down by
unv hasty, feverish action, however,
spectacular such action may be. It
Ix-hooves Canadians as free men to
look at the position calmly and deliberately to asceitain where they
were and to determine whether they
should norslst in thc course adopted
long ago.       The tact could not    be
disguised that at present was a
passing wave in which eould he traced aimer, enthusiasm, and fear may-
he calculated bv some to force Canada to depart from her policy uud
contribute at once to the British
navy, The question was not new,
it was a question of the confederation itself. It presented itself in
concrete form in the Imperial conference of |!I0_. The proposition was
then hefore the Canadian dele-rates
that all the safe-governing dominions
should eon tribute to the armv and
navy. This was not viewed hy Canadian ministers witb favor. Tbey
declined to accept it ami presented
lheir view-s of what Canada was firepans! lo do."
Sir Wilfrid then read to the House
ihe memorandum which set forth
that Canada was prepared to develop her own system of defence on
land and seu hut would give no cash
contribution. That was the oosi-
tion then taKen and the minister saw
no reason to depart from It today.
Touching on naval expenditure the
Premier said Canada was engaging
on works of peace but naval defence
must be undertaken upon a line of
action to do for this what had been
done for the militia. It might tu
but was Canada sure whero the beginning and end would come in ratal
matters? The armament cl vester-
dav might he obsolete tomorrow. In
l!td_ training ships were the great
things, hi 1**07 they were not heard
of nud it was a question of armament. Tbe admiralty had suggested
two vears ago Canada should not
contribute to the exchequer but oro-
vide submarines, docks, and torpedoes. The Premier thought that wc
should proceed as with tho militia,
take counsel with the naval defence
carrv it out after our own methods.
Sir Wilfrid then came to his neror-
atiou aud every word was listened to
attentively. He hoped the day
would never come when Canada
would be drawn into the conflicts of

lilow to his wile, who was at his bedside, and to Dr. Sawyer, his dIivsI-
elan. Dr. Sawyer had, during tho
last week, regarded his condition as
very seriotts, but had always held out
hopes of his ultimate recovery. The

of Governor Cosgrove is said to havo

death was Immediate, so that there

to the L'nited States, Mi. Myers going to North Dakota. in that
slate Mr. Myers made a competency
ami came to British Culumbia foi
the purpose of lindiug a suitable climate in whieh to settle and make a
nome. Speaking uf this country be
said tu a representative of tlie Herald: '"My friend, 1 law a Utile creek
today, with iish in it, running
ibruugb a piece of land and I said to
myself, lhat creek is worth two dollars a day to look at and another
two dollars a day to know tbat I
could get good, pure water, out of it.
If you eould only know the misery uf
hauling water, alkali water, six miles
in a tank to give one's amoials a
drink you could appreciate my let-lings when I looked at that little
babbling brook. You have a great
country, a country that will be a
home country, one in which a man
can be happy and free from a great
many of the miseries of the middle
west. 1 feel that I can come and
live in your country—not merely
exist. Then a fellow can catch a
fish, shoot a deer and in fact live a
life that is worth living. Another
thing that appeals to me is tbe fact
that you can grow fruit here. Think
of apples, pears, plums and strawberries, of your own raising, on the
table. After what I have gone
through for the last few years, it
seems almost too good to be true,
and, mind you, North Dakota is a
goud country at that. If I decide
to settle here, a number of others
will follow me and you will hnd us
good citizens and good fellows."
Mr. Myers spoke the truth.

We are the largest owners of first-class Prult Lands on direct existing lines of transportation in British Columbia, and in order to advertise the
West Kootenay District--the greatest in the world -- we have decided that for a short time only we will sell orchard tracts In our model sub-division—
FRUITVALE •• lor $10 down and $10 per month without interest for /O ACRES.
This offer will be withdrawn in a very short time, after which the terms will be one-fifth of the purchase price in cash and the balance at 6 per
cent, interest.   You must act quickly in order to get in on the easy terms.
FRUITVALE <s located 40 miles south of Nelson, on the Spokane division of the Oreat Northern Railway, in the southernmost and
warmest valley In the West Kootenay District, Southern British Columbia. The railroad runs through the sub-division and the townsite and railroad
station are located in the centre, with twenty-five miles of wagon roads radiating therefrom. Each orchard tract fronts on one of these roads, which are
cut out, graded, and improved with bridges, culverts, etc.
The Provincial Oovernment has made an appropriation of $50,000 to be expended in the district In which FRUITVALE '* located this year.
FRUITVALE has daily passenger and freight trains; post office with daily mail; school; church services; four general stores; meat
market; two lumber yards; broom factory; hotel; and 350 population.  It is expected that one, and probably two, large saw mills will be started shortly.
FRUITVALE lies in a broad and beautiful valley, watered by numerous streams of pure water; the mountains are low and sunlight
plenty; the soil is rich fruit loam with claysubsoil, level to gently sloping and uniformly free from stone. There is a home with good neighbors every
few yards. YOU WILL MAKE A HISTAKE if you don't send us your name and address to-day, so that we can give you, free of charge, maps, plans,

tcr, mi American expert, in making a
so-called investigation into thv water
problems of this province. Mr. Charles Wtlson, of Vancouver, drafted a
new Act lo take the place ol the old
one. This new act covers over sixty
pages of thu statute book, attd was
unreduced by Mr. Pulton, duct commissioner of lands. No sooner had
Hie bill get into committee than it
lieeaine apparent that the government
hud introduced one of tbe crudest,
most Ill-considered, and in many of
its provisions unwise, measures. The
spectacle which Mr. Fulton and his
colleagues made ol themselves in thc
bouse in connection with this bill,
utterly destroyed what little confidence I here was lelt in the present
government to carry out lame and
Important reforms. This Waler Act
will settle for years lo eome, all the
water rights in the province, and
will lead to ureal [08H an.) uncertainty on the pail ol lbe owners of hind
Willi water records ulta.'hed.
This wus a hare laced all pt   ou
tbe part of the government, represented by lhe Attorney-General, to
tamper with the purity of the franchise; no man's vole would Iw sufe
bud tins Iniquitous attempt succeeded, The splciidi.l Unlit pul up by the
Opposition was one whi.h will long
be reiiicmbered tn British Columbia
und will not he forgotten hv the
electors whose rights were ut stake.
The Liberal party came out boldly
find emphatically in favor of giving
lbe personal property tax to the
municipalities. Iu other words, for
lair treatment of the municipalities
including the cities. Experience has
shown lhat the municipalities have
not been given a source ol revenue
Urge enough to meet the drain upon their treasury. The government
has by means of high taxation, as
well as by lbe exploitation ol the
public assets, obtained a largo provincial revenue, and claim a largo
surplus ol Income over expenditure.
On the other hand, the province has
Imposed new and additional burdens
upon lhe municipalities. Thc province shouldered upon municipalities a
large additional burden under the
new .School Act, passed a few vcars
ago. The municipalities are leeling
the hurden very keenly, many of
Ihem have lo tax the real estate and
Improvements up In tho limit, allowed bv the Municipal Act, which is
two or Ihrec times as high ns the
provincial rates on lands and im-
prnvemenis outside ol municipalities,
The     imposition    pointed    out   that
as lire, is uow regarded to he
imperative. The whole continent is
awakening to the importance ol this
subject, as evidenced by the recent
conferences at Washington, Ottawa
and Vaucouver on the subject of
forestry, The cream ol our timber
within reach ol transportation has
been alienated by the McUride government; it is held under licenses
which invite waste and destruction,
lhe license holders are practically
compelled to cut oil the best timber
within a lew years in order to save
iheir investments, or lo obtain their
speculative gains, and this bostrol-
all asset to the province will have
been destroyed.
The Liberal members of the house
saw and grappled wilh the situation
a vear ago, and introduced un amendment to the Land Act which would
have lhe effect ol tully protecting
Ihe interests ol the people ol thc
province, and encouraging the lum-
iii'inien and license-holders generally
lo conserve thc forests, and to pro-
led them Irom waste and destruction. This amendment was voted
down by the MeBride government
and its supporters, but so great has
been the dissatisfaction with the
government's course, and so insistent
bus been thc demand that this all-
important subject shall not be paltered with any longer, but must be
met und dealt with in a statesmanlike manner, lbat Mr. MeBride
compelled to announce in the house
the oilier dav that he would take the
matter up at the next session. The
same procrastination has marked thc
government's treatment of this subject lhat marked Its dealings with
every other Important, question calling for legislative action. Thc greatest dissatisfaction prevails on account of the failure ol the government to deal promptly with thc timber situation.
The government's treatment ol the
large and influential delegation, and
of the signers ot thc hundreds ol
petitions which were circulated in tho
interest of thc movement, has caused
amongst local oplionists a very hitter feeling. The promise at some
fxliire and Indefinite time to submit
the question to a plebiscite vote,
is regarded as a mere subterfuge. On
the other hand, there is a feeling nl
disgust over the double-dealing ol
McUride in connection with the
Hawthornthwaite resolution calling
for the appointment of a commission
to examine Into state manufacture
and snln of Hqunr. Imagine tho

.McUride one duy promising tbe temperance people a plebiscite vote tu
determine whether or not tbe people
of a locality should be permitted to
control the liquor traflic in the locality, and the next voting for
resolution which declares that Local
option is objectionable and inelli-
elent. The money of the province Is
to be spent in investigating a system whieh will neither bring reliel to
those who want to stop the liquor
trailic, nor to those who are engaged
in that traflic, but on the contrary,
will put the latter out ol business,
without giving the former tbe remedy which they believe te be essential to thc proper coutrol ot the
The strong and emphatic stand
taken by the Liberals ol the bouse on
the question of the settlement of
our public lunds, is one which will
give that parly a plank in its platlorm that will appeal not only to
tbe rural population, but to all the
people of British Columbia alike. It
is becoming more apparent every year
tbat this province possesses magnificent possibilities in agriculture,
horticulture and fruit-growing. We
are just beginning to realize what a
heritage wc have in the soil ol this
province, yet the MeBride government aro utterly neglecting their opportunities, and every hour ot tbat
neglect is lending to bring about
with regard to our land, a condition
jusl as unfortunate as tbat which
bus has already been brought about
with regard to our timber. The
settler cannot afford, as a rule, Ui
buy lands which havo been acquired
by speculators and exploited tor
Agricultural ami larming lands of
lhe province, when cleared oi irrigated, where they roquire irrigation, are much more valuable per
aciu than iu any other part ol Canada; but the cost ot clearing Is
gic.it,'so is tlte cost of irrigation in
lhe dry la-It, und if to these difficulties arc added a speculative price
exacted by way ol tribute to those
who have been allowed to obtain
largo tracts (ur no other purpose
tliun to enrich themselves out ot tbe
public domain, we cannot hope to
have that rapid and prosperous settlement so essential to our province.
It is not well that our settlers, such
us can overcome the handicap, should
have their future mortgaged, vet do
real effort has heen made by the government to help the settlor. As was
pointed out by Mr. Oliver and others in thc house, the speculator ts
allowed to take the cream, and when
this has lieen secured, the government
places a reserve on the rest, and
calls upon the people ot the province
to behold how tho government are
protecting lands from tbe specula-
tots in order that it may go to thc
settler. Ask the hundreds ol people
who have gone Into the Nechaco Valley and other northern districts, why
ihey came out without becoming
settlers, ami they will tell you that
the whole country is staked by
.speculators who demand exorbitant
prices for the land. Many ot these
speculators are not of our own
peoplo, but arc merely exploiting
British Columbia's resources Intending to spend their booty In their own

The excuse oficred for tbls sort ot

there was no suggestion that the
abuse would bo remedied.
Thc Insurance agents ol the province complained that the laws affecting insurance business were in-
euiiltable as against those companies
and agents doing business in tills
province and registered here, strong
and influential delegations waited on
the government, but were turned
away with very scant courtesy. We
believe It is important that the
people should obtain insurance at the
lowest rates consistent with salety,
and wo are not sure that the handicaps which havo becn placed upon tbo
insurance companies doing business

far as thev make for protection ot

and the attorney-general to strangle
Mr. Oliver's proposition, by proposing that Ottawa should inquire into
the matter. Thc move on thc part
of Mr. McOuiro and tho rest ol thc
Conservatives was so palpably a
trick to sidetrack the subject, tbat
these members will find that it will
not go down with their constituents.
The supply of coal to the people ol
this province by the mines of tbis
province, is entirely a local matter.
If tliere is a combine or trust to
keep up thc price to an unreasonable
figure, or te discriminate against thc
people of British Columbia in favor
ot those ot adjoining states, the matter is one lor the legislature ot
British Columbia to deal with. Mr.

The death in England recently ol
Mr. Andrew Bears, J.P., senior member of the great soap firm and managing director ot the Isleworth
works, recalls anew the value ol advertising in huildiug up a business.
Mr. Pears was eat grandson ol
the original Andrew Pears, the founder of the world-lauieii soap business,
whu began life as a barber, and later
set up business as a general perfumer in Greek street, Soho. A skilled
chemist, the late Mr. Pears, discovered a way to make transparent soap,
Upon which the family fortunes were
built. When, in 1802, the firm was
turned into a limited liability company, the yearly profits ol the much
advertised soap were said to be £71),-
Indeed, Mr. Pears once told an Interviewer that the annual Increase to
their business was "a fortune;" one
year it was Irom £10,000 to £500,-
Tlie greatest feat of Messrs. Pears
has been thc success of their advertisement, "Good morning, have vou
used Pears' Soap?" ls a classic greeting. Again, who Is there who has
not seen the famous picture "Bubbles," lor which the firm paid Sit
.lohn Millnis £2,200.
The statuette of the cleanlv old
housewife using Pears soau with apparently unncccssnry vigor on her
teurlul son whom she Is admoiiishin

S observations!
I        BY THE OLD MAN. !
K. T. Lowery, the sage ol the
west, is now issuing his paper, "Tlie
Ledge," at Nelson, instead of Greenwood as heretofore. Tlie reason for
(liis change is lhat the business ol
the Ledge is almost as great in the
Kootenays as it is in   the Boundary.
The Evening Post is the latest
journalistic venture in Victoria. The
Post will he published by lho Colonist Publishing company,
Duncan Itoss will start an evening
paper in Vancouver.
The Herald is iu receipt of an advance copy of the Canadian Pacific
Railway company's pamphlet on
British Columbia, li is an up-to-
date production ami rocs exhaustively Into tho resources and possibilities of the province. Speaking of
Cranbruok tho pamphlet savs;
Cranbrook, the chief divisional
point ou tho Crows Nest Pass
railwav. is situated in a beautiful
Wooded prairie near thc southern
end of the Kootenay River valley.
It fs an Important business place,
the center ol a line agricultural
and lumbering district, and a distributing point fur supplies. The
'lation is about • 3,5(10 and
steatlilr incrensirrr. Four large
saw mills with a dailv capacitv
of about tf!0,000 feel, are lncat«i
in the town bv a branch railwav.
It has a guod water works system, hanks, churches hotels and
schools. The building nl the
Kootenav Central railwav will
add much to ''raiibnmk's wealth
and importance.
A renewed cfTorl should he made tn
have the Soo-Snokano Fiver stop at
Movie. On ami after the ith inst
the eastboiind Fiver will pass Movie
nbnut 12 noun, while the westbound
will en t.hroiii'h at 7,30 p.m. Some
time ago the Fiver did stop at Movie
and the convenience thus rendered the
peoplo     of  the     lake side city  wan
greatly appreciated. Now that these
trains reach Moyie at convenient
hours it would seem that to stop
there would bo a good thing for the
district and thc company.
The fact that Cranbrook has becn
made a port of entry instead ol an
outport as heretofore is a matier of
some considerable Importance to this
city. Up tn now tbe customs receipts fur the Cranbruok office hf>V0
been merged with the purl ot Nelson
and consequently Cranhrook, as
Cranbronk, has received un credit.
Willi Cranbrook as a port all duty
paid here, and at the outports uuder
the Jurisdiction of the Uranbrook
port, will be credited to the Uranbrook office.
Today is known .is All Fool's Day.
The uld custom uf sending anyone, un
this day, upon a bootless errand
seems to have been general throughout Europe for centuries, ll would
seem that iu the middle aacs ihe
Blbtcal story of Christ lieing sent
from Herod to Pilate was lhe urigin.
The fact remains, that tn hoi people
in a good-natured way, i.s tho object.
This is nu insinuation uu the part nr
the Herald, which appears todav, he-
cause this is the regular .lay oi publication.
The Herald is in receipt nf the lirst
number of tbe Evening tlulletln of
Prince Itupert. The Bulletin is the
lirst dailv tn be published in the
Northern capital. The paper ts Llh-
ergl iu politics.
If you want to boost Cranbruok
this year send a copy of the Herald
lo yuur friends.
A twelve million dollar beer trust
has been organized In Qttobcc- That

Prince Edward Island has been nut

lion between The Island and the

Tbe talk ol war between Germany
and England is nonsense. When
there wus a war between Spain and
tlic United States and Germany
started tn interfere, Johnny Bull immediately entered the flcld and said,
"Hands off." International matters
have arrived at that stage where the
Augln-Saxon race will stand together, and any time that a country
threatens England, the good old
Motherland will receive the fullest
support of the army and navv of the
United States.
Have vou joined the Board ul
Trade?    If not, why not?
If yuu want to make this a better
growing year lor Cranbrook got iu
aud boost.
The Herald is growing and is not
afraid to show its subscription list
tu any advertiser. On the contrarv
urge upon every advertiser to
satisfy himself, as to the extent nl
the circulation of the Herald.
An advertiser in the Herald last
week told us that his ad. brought
liim a customer lorty miles trom
Cranbrook, that gave him enough
business to pay lor bis ad. for some
months to come. "It evidently
pays to advertise in tho Heruld,"
said the gentleman, "and my experience with vour paper has demonstrated this lact."
If vou own a foot of property in
Cranhrook you should he a booster
Inr the Board of Trade. The men
who are devoting their energies to
promoting the hest interests ol Cranbronk as members nl the Board of
Trade do not receive one cent Ior
their work. Their time is worth
money. Are vna lining as much for
vour town? Thc way tn push our
lown ahead is for all of us to gut in
and work together.
Keep on boosting Cranbruok- It
won't do vou any harm aud it may
do a whole lot nf us good.
There is no northern country on
earth that can show such climatic
conditions as Cranbrook and South
Kast Kootenay. Take the montth ol

conditions are concerned, It is trulv
Ihe banana belt ol this section nt[ the
nuntrv and the neople were never

Governor Folk, ol Missouri, in an
uddress delivered at Norfolk, Virginia, predicts a clash between Canada and the United States! Basing
his opinion upon the large emigration from the United States to Canada during the last few years, Mr.
Folk says that the tendency will be,
on account of this large emigration,
really bring about a union between Canada ami the United States.
This talk is all bosh. The people
who eome from the United States
tn Canada to make their hnme, as
soon as the laws will permit, become
permanent citizens of the Dominion
and in consemicncc are as good Canadian citizens as those who were born
in thc country. The men who have
left the States to come to Canada
have done so to better their condition. The majority of them realize
that thev have acted wisely and
their stand, since thev have become
citizens nf Canada, is in lavor of
Canada and Canadian institutions.
This talk about a union with the Re-
uublie south ol the line due to American emigration is the worst kind of
mt that could be originated. The
American who comes tn Canada to
make his home is a Canadian nnt
onlv In fact, but in sentiment, and
what is good Ior Canada, what Is
good Ior the Canadian citizen, what
is best Ior Canadian advancement. Un-
American who has become a Canadian citizen will endorse to tlie fullest extent.
Be a booster, lt is so easy when
yuu know huw. There is no reason
why every man, woman and child in
Uranbrook and the district should
nut be a booster. Some people
think that a buoster aud a boomer
are synonymous, but lhat is not the
case. A booster is one who is optimistic and believes in lhe future ol
the country he is living iu, not
simply for what he can get uut ot it,
but Ior the benelit ol the country, itself. A boomer is une who takes
the sellisb view of the case and only
wants tu sec things go ahead that he
mav personally make profit out ol
it. Bo a booster. Everyone may
be a booster. The Cranbrook Herald has been a booster for the last
eleven years ami during that time,
week by week, 1ms endeavurcd to lay
before its readers the possibilities ot
lhe district ol East Kootenay. K
mav be asked hy some people: "lluw
ean 1 he a booster? 1 live out in
lhe country and see very few people,
especially those who come into the
country with a view ul settling?"
The question is easily answered.
Everyone has friends in Eastern Canada, 'the United States or thc Uld
Country, and to these everyone
should write occasionally, telling of
the progress ol the country and at
the same time sending a copy ol thc
Herald, which contains always une nr
inure articles along the line ol the
development of the country. Everyone mav be a booster, evervone
should be a booster. The country
needs boosters, so it would be well
lo be a booster.
How manv know how manv horse
there are iu Canada? Not manv
wo suppose, nor do we lancv that
manv people particularly care, but
[information on this puint was imparted at. the annual dinner in To-
routo the other day of tho Ontario
Association ol Veterinary Surgeons.
Dr. J. G. Stewart, in spcakin-** of the

(Walker's Weekly.)
The Good Book says, "Be temper-
ale iu all things," and to "resist not
evil," but our woman suRragists ami
Local Oplionists think they have a
hetter way.
This week the editor received a fifteen hundred word communication
frum 1). Spencer, superintendent of
thc Local Option League, accompanied by a letter asking us lo publish
it. As our space is limited, and we
have the local field to fill, we are
compelled to lay thc article on the
table. It pretends to express the
position and intention of the Local
Option League, with reference to the
action uf the Provincial government
in deciding to submit the question to
a vote of the peop.e, but it is tor the
most part the vituperate cry ol a
spoiled child who has peevishly demanded moro than the parent can
give in fairness to the rest ol the
family. We believe a temperate
pulley iu all things is the best
policy. Intemperance never wins.
And Mr. Spencer is very intemperate.
He objects strenuously to the matter
being left to a plebiscite and accuses
the government ol showing great
weakness iu so deciding. He forgets
that thc .13,0(11) signatures presented
tu the government represent scarcely
a seventh of the population of the
province. Surely the I'ovemment
lias a right to consider the rest of
the family without being considered
weak, ur a tool in tlte hands ol the
liquor men. After accusing the government of these things Mr. Spencer
goes after it fur passing a resolution
asking for a Itoyal Commission to be
appointed to cumiire into the liquor
traffic. This, he says, is another
way ol shelving the question, and
"will arouse the spirit ol the temperance people to white heat." Just
so. The must intemperate people on
earth arc the temperance people.
Dare to question anv attitude they
take, or presume to demand of them
the same reasonableness as would be
demanded in other legislation, and
thev are "aroused to white heat."
We have little patience with an intemperate man, he he given to liquor
nr cold water. All men prize sobriety and sanity, and the man who
dues not realize that we need all the.
brains we have got in minding our
own business and doing our work as
it should tie done is a back number.
Men who arc "aroused to white
heat" the moment thev cannot have
what thoy ask Ior aro not safe men.
The conclusion nf Mr. Spencer's th-!
ade, is sufficient tn show what are
U.e plans and objects ot the Local,
Optlontsts.     He says:
We have some exceedingly choice designs in
Children's Spring and Summer Coats
and Misses' Dresses
See our Windows.
We have received a further consignment of
"20th Century" Brand Clothing
in their latest and nattiest designs.   Call and see them.
"The campaign is on. Let every
mural reformer work. If thc foolish
move of the government, even the
liquor support reasons, means their
defeat and the placing ol the Liberals
in power, who is to blame? We
must put principle before party and
vote fur the men who will put the
settlement nf the liquor question in
the bands of the people."
Pray, Mr. Spencer, who are the
people'.' And in what better way
can the question be more equitablv
settled tban hy submitting it to a
plebiscite? Thc men who do not
agree with thc Local Optionists In
their arbitrary demands, arc property owners and ratepayers, and surely j
they have some rights. Sn have the
liquor men. Local Option is nnt a
new i hine. nor has it proved to he a
panacea fnr all intemperance. It a1
irovernment cannot be permitted to
hear both sides of  the question with-'
out "rousing the ire nl the temperance people to while heat," they are
verv intemperate temperance people.

Getting mure business is the keynote of commercial life. There are
good, bad and inditiereut ways uf going about this worthy aim, but the
principle uf increasing, tireless activity, remains the only solution uf
profit's problem. More business.
liow shall 1 gel it? That's a live,
read, hunting issue iu lbe mind and
lives uf all who deal for pro til—commercial or professional.
There can be no such thing as
standing still in business affairs. Wu
either gain or lose. Even this thing
uf holding one's own from year to
year, in thu last analysis reveals a
surplus of more-business endeavors.
Losses arc common to the affairs of
men; natural, certain and sure. It's
tbe easiest tiling in the world to lusc
out, and often Lhe hardest to win.
Victory always records her portion
uf battles on the held of energy. To
worry over a single loss may mean
defeat, where persistent ener-iv would
have brought victory complete. No,
there's no time for wyrry. Pays to
look up and beyond to new business,
more business—everlastingly, and let
losses be simply "spilled milk."
Patience and contentment are priceless virtues, but they dare not
•hinder ambition fur healthy advancement. The desire for more business
should be a continuous, healthy
strife, void of selfishness and grounded upon a willingness to make conditions such as will give an abiding
faith in one's deserving qualities.
Certain things are needful before
<me can expect a growing business,

right. Many a girl without the
slightest talent for music is miming
a piano who should be making bonnets or bread, und many a bov is

The farmer's girl does not generally realize the advantages she has for
self improvement, over the society
girl, or those situated in other positions of life. The freedom and independence of [arm life afford opportunities for study which, if rightly
mploycd, would develop our farmers' girls into the professional women workers of our times. How is
it, girls, and especially vou girls un
the farm, tbat we hear so often uf
the "self-made man" (and most of
our great men are of that class!, and
so little of the self-made woman'/
Our farmer boys become great lawyers and statesmen, etc., have you
not the same opportunities as they?
Thc girl who has been raised uu the
farm, and has aspirations to any of
the professions, generally conceives
the idea tbat she must get away
from thc farm to do her studying.
at the very first jump. Do not lie
too hasty in running your neck into
the matrimonial noose, if vou rom

(ear that you will have to from necessity.) You will lind plenty ot
work to do, plenty of burdens to

in living for one's self alone. Do vour

Perhaps it is true, there never was
a garment too fine for a man or
maid; there never wns a chair too
good for a cobbler or a cooper or
king to sit in; never a bouse too fine
to shelter the human head. Hut often times do we not value all these
ihin.ns far more than they are worth
and sometimes mortgage a house for
the mahogany we bring into it? Had

all these (ban consume ourselves before we get a place we can call
borne, and take so much pains with
the outside that the inside is as hollow as an empty nut. Beauty is a
great thing, hut beautv of garment

love. All the elegance in the world
will not make a home, and a spoonful of love exceeds whole shiploads of
furniture and all the gorgeousness

One of tho most important things
tbut a man owes lo liis family is
cheerfulness. He should cast all
trouble away when hu comes to bis
home. He is a selfish being who,
having trouble in llis trade or calling
ur profession, always brings his
trouble home for the purpose of making everyone else miserable. Thore
is no bravery or manliness in that
kind of a thing, no thoughtfulness for
others' happiness, no trust in God
that all will he for the hest.
The virtues grow about the home.
They cluster, bloom and shed, their
perfume around the fireside. Love,
husband, wife, father, mother, child
and home—without these words thc
world would be a barren wilderness,
and men and women but brutish
neasts. The home is thc nursery fur
the virtues.
The best pleasure Is the purest
pleasure. Tliere arc .roses without
thorns. Thc busy man must have
some pleasure, some recreation, some
relaxation. He ought not to have it
on the street with gossiping ehatter-
or at the gambling table with
lhe dissolute or wanton. Ile ought to
find it at home. He ought to do
something in which his family could
have a part. It ought to he pure
elevating, stimulating. The man
that is so considerate and cquiposed,
that will make this mutter no
secondary affair, but give it the best
thought of his life, will make a better
man, a moral citizen, more considerate husband, more loving father. He
rill find his family ties strengthen-
id, so that as his children grow to
manhood and womanhood, nd place
will be so attractive to them as the

To the Editor ol the "Herald:"
Dear Sir: At a time when the subject of immigration into this country aud thc value of uur lands fur
agricultural and horticultural purposes arc being widely discussed, it
might be well to note our apparent
limitations and how they may he
overcome. Blind fuith seldom benefits any cause, particularly one whose
success depends upon conformity to
thc laws of nature. It would be
mistake to work up enthusiasm over
what we might like to sec rather
than what we know it is in our
power to become
There is little doubt that this
year will sec an influx of prospective
settlers. Everything points this
wav. They will be delighted with
our climate and scenery, but they arc
not here for their health. They will
want to know that they can make a
living and a good living too, Tbe
"knocker" will tell them ol frost and
drouth nnd all other drawbacks his
pessimistic soul delights in. How
to re-assurc them, or even
convince ourselves which is thc first
and most important thing? Evidently not by ignoring ilitluulties altogether, hut by seeing hovt these
may tie removed.
lt is very easy to be a "knocker."
There is no country but hns some
disadvantages, but it is the wise
man who laces thc situation, grasps
the difficulty, and hy his knowledge,
skill and industry reduces the mountain again to a mole-hill.
I-et us consider these drawbacks.
Perhaps the most apparent to us
last summer was a frost or two
which nipped some of the vegetation
a little more than wc cared to see.
This last summer was rather exceptional and similar frosts were felt
down through Washington and Oregon. But tho progressive fruit
grower to thc south of us docs not
give up heart on this account,
Though very destructive at the time,
they are only occasional and can he
guarded against when the value ot
the crop warrants it. Smudges
frnm petroleum pots set out in the
orchard, and thc application of water
are both used when the wet and dry
hulls thermometers indicate thc evening More, a tondoncy to frost. This
means of Indication is   verv interest-
llio Inited Stales Department ol Agriculture ou the subject. lt is
shown that air drainage is a most
Important thing iu the selection of a
site. During the night, owing to the
radiation of the earth's beat, the air
near the ground becomes cooled and
Icing denser ou that account drains
down the drains into the bottoms,
where it settles, producing frost. The
higher benches lieing above tbis colder stratum, escape. The writer was
particularly struck lust summer
with the superiority ut bench laud in
tbis respect. The frost of July 26th
which nipped the potato tops in the
i.ottoms did uo harm whatever at
Wm. Hamilton's ranch and was only
slightly perceptible at Mr. Leslie's,
ami nu doubt if all the numerous
hitherto neglected bunch lands which
surround Craubrook had been similarly planted tbey would have escaped too.
Wind, loo, mixes up the cold
stratum with the wurm and thus as
the timber is removed and a greater
circulation of air prevails, there is a
general improvement, particularly in
low-lying ground.
. Thu knocker does not discriminate,
lie denounces all situations alike. He
fails to si c tbat while bottom lands
will he first-class for hay, benches arc
..s equally good for fruit and vegetables, providing there is sufficient
And this brings us to the second
onsiderution. It is admitted now
y .scientific agriculturists that the
order of importance of conditions for
ucccssful plant growth is (1) climate; (2) moisture; (3) cultivation,
and (1) chemical composition of soil,
i liis relative importance of moisture
is lo bu expected when it is realized
lhat plants grow by drawing up
through the minute pores uf their
roots all their food dissolved by
water. By far the greater part of
this water simply passes through thc
,-laiit and is evaporated through the
leaves. Prof. King, of Madison,
Wisconsin, has found by direct measurement that from three hundred to
five hundred tons ot water must be
furnished by rainfall or other means,
ii two tons were raised to the acre
these would mean Irom six to ten
inches deep ot water over the ground.
Add to this thc amount lost by
evaporation and pcrculation. particularly in gravelly soils, and one bas
some idua of actual requirements.
LariM- fruit trees require less, but it
is stated by W. S. Thornkerey, Pro-
Iioor of Horticulture in Washington
Slate College, that apples, such
the .Jonathan, recommended for this
country too by our Department of
Agriculture, will tail almost absolutely if sufficient water is not supplied lo mature Ihem.
Has our valley sufficient rainfall'.'
It has been said that when the rainfall is less than 20 inches per annum,
irrigation is necessary, but a very
important thing is its distribution
throughout the year. When the rainfall is less than ten inches during the
summer months there is insufficient
moisture. From the standpoint of
increased yield and crop insurance,
the C.P.H. has put in their svstem
in Alberta although the rainfall at
Calgary Irom 181*8 to 1005 inclusive
for May, June, July, August and
September averaged 16.74 inches. At
Fort Steele between the years 18!M
and 1800 inclusive, the average rainfall was 15.311 inches. The precipitation from June last to the present
for Cranbrook is as follows: June,
3.20 inches; July, .'JO inches; August,
Hi inches. September, .73 inches; October, .02 inches; November, M
inches; December, .!!» inches; Januarv, 2.37 inches; Fehruarv, M inches;
March, up to the 25th inst, .10 inches
nr a total rainfall ol less than I
Inches for almost ten months with a
rainfall in July, August and September of 1.22 in'cnes for three summer
months. When the evaporation and
pcrculation is further considered the
aridity ot our climate becomes quite
It is evident lhat the rainfall is
not sufficient even for orchards unless
the moisture is supplied by seepage
nr failing this by irrigation.
Fortunately we arc close to the
mountains with their numerous
streams, and where the summer flow
becomes too small, there is the possibility of storing thc flood waters
of the spring.
With irrigation on bench lands free
of frost, the possibilities arc enormous. This means intensive cultivation, small farms with bumper crnn
and a large population to the square
mile. It is thc case elsewhere and
it will be here in a few vears if the
horticulturist only goes about his
work scientifically as well as industriously.
