EA8TERN PAPERS INDUCED
TO MALIGN  THIS
FAIR CITY
Tin* two minister; ol Cranbiook
wlio spread broadcast a circular statin; in effect that Cranbrook was a
lawless town, have evidently accomplished their purpose. Eastern
papers Ihe past ton days hevp had
articles derogatory to the lair city
'nf Cranbrouk, To^ those in this
| town whn have spent their money
anil their time for years to give value
to property in this city ami to bring
prosperity to Cranbrook, this seems
loo bad. There are many wage-
earners ami business men who have
their all invested in Cranhrook, and
when the press ol the cast- arc indiir-
ed lo print statements that are a
positive injury to the town, naturally
they du not take kindly
to such a procedure.
These publications means that property in Cranhrook will he reduced in
value, Ior prosperity adds value tn
property, yet the active work or individuals who have no permanent interest in the town, who do not own
ii dollar's worth of property, who enn
move at any time without loss to
tliemselves, will be a hard blow t.i
that prosperity, and every property
owner must suiter. There are five
ministers in this town, and yet only
Iwo sifted the circular that was
spread broadcast, carrying with it
the statement that Cranhrook is a
"lawless" town, and to eastern
people the impression that it is not
a town Ior any man with a family
to come to.
The ureal majority ol the people
in Cranbrook are opposed to such
methods. The city council, composed
of the leading men of the city, are
opposed to it, and yet all feel powerless to stop sueh unfair ami unjust
methods of knocking Crnnbrook.
There is no Iwlter controlled town
in Canada today than Cranhrook, no
town has a better class ot citizens
and the Herald, that has worked tor
nearly eleven years for the upbuilding
of this town, for that which is tight
and just, protests against a move-
ment that carries with it misrepresentation to the people of the east
and a hard knock lo one of thc best
towns in Canada.
The Herald believes that the
churches ol the world are a potent
factor for the good of tlie people.
and the Herald has been a consistent
supporter of the Cranbrook churches.
and lielicves that they should receive
the liberal support of the people. Hut
when those at the head i'f
the churches turn their labors against
the people and the town in which
they are located, something is radically wrong.
'eace is the basis of true Christian-
, and personal antagonism and
bitter attacks on the part of a
m nistcr never brought a sing'e individual to salvation or elevated the
prevailing standard ot morality.
Let us net in harmony and work
for the best interests of the town
and boost, not knock, Cranbrook.

The fruit lands of Kootenay and
Arrow Lakes and Creston could have
lie.ii purchased lot a song a lew
years ago, simply because it had not
iiit-ii deiuoiistrat.il that ihey were
safe as an Investment for iruit lands.
ITOday, since this fact has been de-
monstrated, these lands an- valued at
$800 10 $1,00(1 an acre. The same
evolution in value of lauds is taking
place iu the Cranbiook district. A
few years ano a fcrent majority had
their doubts ahout tho productiveness of the bench lands alw-ut Cranbrook as fruit lands. William Hamilton, the pi.iiit-er frillt grower of
tin- district, demonstrate m the
people ihai the bench iui .Is were the
ideal lands l.n imn oi alt kinds suited for this climate. Following him
Mr. Doran, Mrs. Willard, Otis
Staples, Mis, Lewis, Robinson-Mc-
Kru/ie. T. S. dill, V. Hyde Baker,
E, C. Smith and others have shown
the fertility of ihe soil by their success in fruit raising and 'demonstrated the fact that all that was necessary was to plant and it would produce. To the Herald it seems
strange thai young men and old men
who are earning a steady wage, do
not take advantage ot the opportun-
ty staring them in the face. Five
acres is a forinne for the future for
individual in this district who
will lake hold willi the determination to succeed, and nny of the land
ean be bought on terms to suit If
the purchaser will start to improve,
One dav this week a representative ol
lhe Herald had the good lorltmo to
lie shown some of the bench lands
mind Oranbrook bv Mr. Elwell, of
the well known real estate firm ol
Beale & Elwell. The <|iiestWm ot the
fertility.of the soil is emphasized by
the successful growth shown of
I'Vervthing planted. There is one
Improvement thai is i,-oing on quietly
that will mean much (or the future
of Cranbrook. That is tt* irrigation ditch now nearly completed that
is to lake water from St. Joseph's
creek to irrigate the Horie tract ' ol
land just, threc-nunrtflrs of a mile
south of town. This tract has been
divided into the acre lots, and is being sold for $111(1 an acre on terms
that the poorest man can buy. These
lots have a western exposure, considered lo be the best (or fruit culture, and are attracting an immense
amount of attention. One great aid-
vantage eninyril by the owner of one
of ihese pints is the fact that ho
can give dally attention to Ms properly ami nt Iho same time never
miss an hour from his work,
Messrs. Beale & Klwell are giving
their personal attention to this
Horie tract, as they v.-ant to see
home people take advantage of an
opportunity to make a home Ior
themselves and lay thc foundation Ior
future prosperity, while still drawing
Iheir wages in what ever occupation
ihey may be engaged.
THE FOURTH AT BONNERS FERRV   NORTH STAR MINING COMPANY
The Cranbrook baseball team went
to Bonners Ferry on Saturday lust
to play a match with the Bonners
Kerrv team, which was hen- during
the May race meeting. It will ite
remembered that on that occasion
Oranbrook won, but on Saturday at
Bonners Ferry the tables were turn-
ad and th.' Canadians were beaten
with a score of t to 1. On Sunday,
Bogle day, a second game was t.i.tv-
i.-il noi this resulted in a victor) Ior
Hie Americans also. A number ol
Cranbrook business men and others
went down to the Ferry on Saturday
and others went on the Sundav
thorntng Flyer. They all report
having had a good time ami speak
highly o: the trnitment Uuv received
at the hands of the peop'e of Bonners
Ferry. It is only fair to add thai
the team played by Bonners Kerry
was not; altogether a local team, as
the besl players were Importctl Irom
Spokane.

A WONDERFUL IMPLEMENT
A farmer in the Lacomhe district
has recently invented a machine that
is destined to almost revolutionize
the great agriculture industry. Tha
invention, which, by the way, is now
in the patent office al, Washington,
D.C., consists of a tour-horse cultivator that cultivates the land thoroughly, tears out roots and dumps them
and all other tratfli Into windrows
ahout twelve feet apart. Set tiers
in opening up new countries have experienced untold dillieulties iu getting
their Innd ready for a crop; tin' slow
and tedious process heretofore employed in gathering up ihe pesky
roo'ls being sullicieut to discourage
even the bravest of pioneers. Now
1111 t his disagreeable back-break iug
work wi.l lie done by machinery. Thi'
capacity of the machine is about
twenty acres a day.     There is     also
levelling allnehmenl to it to be
used in giving the finishing 1 ouches
In the field.
! ln lus report to the directors Neil
McLcod Curran, manager of the
North Star mine, savs among other
things, that during the vear just
pasl work lias mostly been confined
lo the mining ol ore in and adjoining
t-ltc old works. A goud deal of prospecting has hem done and several
bunches of good shipping ore nave
been discovered. Three holes 534
feet deep, have been sunk by means
"i diamond drill. One of these holes
Is verj encouraging and further drill-
in-; wiii be prosecute! The mine
lias shipped -1,(100 tons of ore during
lie year at a profit. On the whole
Mi. Cumin's report is most encouraging as to tlie future of the North
Star.
CRESTON FRUIT
reston will ship between r.,000 anil
8,000 i*i at.'s ol slinwlK-ir.es this year
ami lliis scas.m then- is no difficulty
in pet t iii*! pickers and aa now SU
berries ine packed nn .lie field they
are only handled once, thus insuring
fancy pncli. There are thirty
growers shipping straw-berries this
year. The proof of the pudding is in
the eatipfi anil the proof ol tho qual-
nf strawberries is the price they
brlng in the open market. While
Spokane strawberries are selling at
12.Sil a ease in Calgary, Creston berries arc (i-U-hing Sfi.llll. The reason
ior lliis difference is lhat the Creston
shippers an* inking tin- greatest pains
Ic, make iheir product a fancy
irlii-le. first hy shipping nothing but
Iil, iruit, second hi mving full measure and third by seeing that enoh
.•rate is neatly put up- As for thc
■tizc of the Preston berries, Mr.
llovan shipped n crnle the other -day
which IK berries filled each box.
At thr Dominion fair at Calgary
Creston berries have been on exhibl-
inn all the time, fresh crates being
sent dailv. The fruit crop ol the
Crcston district will consist of 2,000
crates ol raspberries, currants, cherries and gooseberries, three cars of
apples, besides the five or six thousand crates of strawberries. The approximate value will he three thousand five hundred dollars fur apples,
lour thousand dollars for small Iruit,
otlier than strawberries and fourteen
thousand dollars for strawberries or
in other words, about $20,000 lor the
crop. I.asl vear there were 28,711
Irnil Irees in the Crcston district.
This vear there are 53,740, or nearly
double. Next year there will lie over
1110,diMi. Crcslon. the home ol the
big strawberry, is all right and has a
great future before it.
At
BASEBALL
No league Rames have heen played
Ibis week. An exhibition game between thc C.P.R. and the Independents took place on Tuesday, but ow-
in-f to tbe absence ot a number nl
players thc game w-as nothing to
write home •bout.
THR BAND
Tin- Cranbrook city hand gave a
very enjoyable open air concert last
evening, The selections rendered
were such ns the public evidently appreciated il Ihe numbers who were
listening is any criterion.
11 is gratifying news to the people
nf British Columbia that the lead
bounty, which would otherwise have
expired on .lune 30, has been extendi-d
Ior a term of another five years by
lhe dominion parliament. The
bounty act, which has been in lorcc,
regulated the bounty bv the standard
puce of pig lead in London. Whenever thc London price rose to £12
Ills, per long ton a gradual diminution took place automatically. When
lead sold in London for £16 oo
bounty was paid. The amount paid
under the act, was limited to 1500,-
(llili a rear. Under the law just passed the starldard price is fixed at £1*.
.Us. per ton, beyond which point tbe
bounty decreases regularly, .lusl
hiiiire .he act was passed it was
amended in committee so that no
more than l.itlO.OOO can be paid in
any one year. Thc hill, as oriftfnal-
ly drafted, provided il more than
tr.00,000 was earned in any one year
il would lie paid. That the bounty
has aided the lea-d miners ot Canada
is easily seen Irom the increase in
production. In IMS tbe production
ol lend in Canada was 10,000,280 lbs.
which was a record. Last year it
reached a total ot 17,738,708 lbs. One
of the arguments used by those who
favored the extension ol the bounty
was that although 12,500,000 has been
appropriated tor the five years wMch
have just ended, only ahout (700,000
or this has actually been paid. When
lead is selling at £18 per long ton
in London the producers ol this province, where nearly all ot Canada's
lead is mined, do not need help.
When, however, thc price sags to be- ....
low that figure, they are in need of tn the extent of $25,»H5,
help on nn increased scale unWl It.and in addition to tills, an allowance
readies £14 10s. and below, wten'ot S1.000 for legal expenses. ,Iap-
lliey will hereafter rccclvo the lull ancsc residents of Vancouver were
benefit ol the bounty. Thus, the pn|d tO.OM for damages done to
Canadian producers ol lead are now their property, making a total ol
guaranteed under the provtaions ol 13b,026 which thc riots have cost the.
the law £18 per ton Instead ol £10 Dominion government, not including
as heretofore. thc cost of the two enquiries.
DIED

SIIOl'l.l) in*: PUT A  STOP TO
Mrs. John Laurie, whose husband
is lying ill ill the St. Kugene hospital, complains thai some party i.t
imrtics have destroyed the gooseberry
bushes at her ranch, threo milos
southwest of the city. Mrs. Laurie
says*. "We have spout ,-i good deal of
money buying and planting fruil trees
and hushes, nnd everything we planted bas done remarkably well. Last
Salurday everything was looking
splendidly and on Tuesday morning,
'.vhen the hoys went out to pick tiie
gooseberries for preserving they had
all been taken except about two
pounds ami a number of the hushes
broken and the branches scattered
around. I believe tlial. the same
thing happened nt Mr. llain.Hon'a
ranch on Sunday." This is one ol
the things that should be stopped at
all costs. People who plant Iruit
ar.l cultivate it should at least hnve
the crop as the reward of their labor
and every pains should lie taken to
being thc guiltv parties lo justice
and give them the limit.

Dolli Dimples is the double quintessence ot comic opera. There is no
plot, to speak oi, that is. no out-
worries _l.uut the plot. lt is a
merry jingle of (un, pretty dances and
luelj antics. Occasionally the ex-
sstve modest may feel iht* Uuiil of
a gentle shock, box there isn't anything suggestive or brashy. It's a
wht-rt-heaned romp iroui beginning
end. Those pretty chorus g,,..
are vivaciousoess personified and are
all good singer;. Miss Cameron is
one of the cnief tun makers and a
mighty One singer at lhat. Slit* fills
a comic -.uie tiiroughou; and does it
well. In the lirst act she is the
crude, boisterous and withal decidedly shrewd and cute country lassie,
and Id lhe second she at first tills the
rt'te uf a French serving maid. developing laicr as a handsome heiress;
tbe serving maid role being assumed
to run down the woman who had
usurped a fortune left Dolly by an
uncle. Mr. Will Philbriok, as Hiram
Skinner, shared the honors with Miss
Cameron as lunmaker. He certainly
knows how to play the country
bumpkin. He is oue ol the best

In the capture ot thc heights. 1758,

that he is Lincoln ti greatest asset

Joseph Chamberlain, whose    birth-
,laj occurred yesterday, the 8tli, was
horn in London in 1830.     He     was
. [located at University College,  London, and joined the iirni of Nettefold
Co.,    screw makers, of   Birmingham, ou reaching his majority.    For
many years he. devoted himself
t/lrely   io    business, but was elected
mayor of Birmingham in 1870 and re-
lecttfd in 1874 and 1875, his term   of
dlice being    remarkable fur the   expeditious despatch of corporate business.     Ahout- this period his      namo
was brought prominently before    the
public bv several articles written   hy
him for" the   "Fortnightly Review,"
in which he   expressed very advanced
political ami educational views.     In
I87H     Mr.    Chamberlain was' elected
member of    parliament    for     Birmingham without opposition, and from
, that date bis career is to be traced
in iho House ot Commons and on the
1 public platform.    On the return    of
the   Liberals     in 1880. lie    was appointed president   of the hoard      of
Irade, with a seat hi th« cabinet. His
inlluence as a political leader increased rapidly outside of the house, nnd
on his exit from office in 1885      he
was elected Ior the western division
ol Birmingham, awl held the office of
president,  of  lhe     local  government
board until   his    divergence ol views
on the Irish policy oi Mr. Gladstone
caused his resignation in 1880.      He
was  subsequently appointed    Britisli
commissioner to    the conference    at
Washington Ior the settlement (if   the
fishery dispute between    Canada and
the United States.    He revisited ihe
United States on the occasion uf his
marriage to   Miss lOndicott in 1888.
lu 1892 ho was chosen leader of  the
Liberal-Unionists.     He took     ollice
under     Lord    Salisbury, iu a  Tory
cabinet, as colonial secretary.      (Us
policy has been characterized hy      a
constant desire    to improve the condition of the working classes*and   by
his advocacy of    Imperial federation
.if the home government and all   the
colonics.    His masterful conduct
I8!»5 and 1800 of the intricate    amt
awkward position ol Uie government,
owing to the Jameson raid into   the
I hen  South African Republic,   made
him ono of the most prominent   men
ol the time    in   the British empire.
At the age of 72, while not actively
engaged in political work, he is     a
figure that stands alone as the    last
of the statesmen giants of the    Victorian era.
was the editor ol one ol the leadiug
newspapers   of    Omaha and received
practical training    that has enabled j
him to make a success duriug      the!
past few   years oi     his own wet'Kh i
taper, tho Commoner.
Bryan will go down* in history    as
me of the   mosl     remarkablo cun
paignei's the world has ever seen.   In
liis first presidential campaign Bryan
travelled more than 18,uuu      miles,
Hpeiiking as many as a dozen times a
day and uftcn {jotting no more lhan
three or four hours sleep out of   the
Ul.     Since that lime no man,    uot
ovcll his rival,     Sccteiary Taft, has
travelled so widely or so continuously
as Bryan.    Especial!) notable In this
sphere   ol   aeth[ties     was  ins Loin
around the   world, and it wus    this
journey, hy the way, that gave many
Americans a now    appreciation    of
llryan, for he was feted and honored
in every civilized country and everywhere did he create a favorable im
prossion us a representative American
—invariably saying tho right thing at
ihe right time in (he right way.
Thc home life ot the Bryan family
ideal.    Mrs. Bryan has ever   been
her husband's life partner iu the hest
and truest senso of the term.    Classmates in college she and her husband
were married shortly alter gradual ion
and she  studied   law    and was admitted to the har—not- with thc   expectation of  practicing,     nut mcreij
that she might help    her husband in
Ids otfiee work.        Later she studied
shorthand, typewriting and proofreading In order to share her Hills'    activities.    There are   three children-
Mrs. Ruth   Bryan   Lea v iti, aged
.Villiam Jennings, Jr., aged 1(1;    and
Urace, aged   1.'.       When prosper!t j
came to the Bryans they leu the cottage in Lincoln'and erected ior themselves, three miles from town, a commodious,    white-porehed,     white-tiir-
reted country house,     that is appropriately  named "Fairvlew."     Bryan
always refers to lus homestead as the
■'farm,'   although he has little time
tor larm work, and he takes pride tu
the     vegetables the    [dace produces,
nut withstanding the fact that he has
little leisure in which to play farm-

WILLIAM   JENNINGS  BRYAN
A thoroughly unique career has been
that of William Jennings Bryan. Nn
man in thc history of American
politics, iu the face of repeated defeats for the nations highest honoi
has still held the admiration and re-
sped of a mtv large section of tbo
American public. Bryan is distinctly a product of the' Middle West.
Horn in the town of Salem, Illinois,
he received his early education at the
public schools, and later graduated
from Illinois col-CffO at Jacksonville
and finally attended the t'nion College ol Law at Chicago. As soon as
be had received his law degree he
married and commenced the practice
of law in the college town of Jacksonville. For the next four years
from IHh.'J to 1887, Bryan awl' his
plucky helpmate went through all
the struggles and vieisitudes which
usually beset the young lawyer
■struggling for a foothold. In the
late eighties the Bryans moved to
Lincoln, Nebraska, which city has
heen their home ever since. One of
the most interesting sidelights
Bryan's career is tho fact that
among the people ol Lincoln he has
always heen populnr, regardless of
parly affiliations and, tweed this
nol strange, hecause it would be hard
for anyone knowing him personally
to he uninfluenced hy his many love-
laWIo qualities. The "Commoner" Is
[a man among men, and, after all,
that's what counts. It will he re-
jmemhered that Lincoln was a Re-
puhliean town and a great many ot
llie volers looked ascant at wliat tbey
considered     Bryan's     radical views,

articles on Canada and Canadians,
ivipliug und a number uf minor cele-
hntes have dune it ami their work
has not gained credit to themselves,
neither has it helped Canada.
With one or two exceptions they are
the worst bunch of grouchers that
ever came down tbe pike. Nothing
appears to please thorn and when they
caitnct find England's moors and uplands and England's manners uud customs and England's speech and accent
running all over tlie country, they go
back home and write to tho Times
aud other journals that Canada is
becoming "Americanized"—whatever
that means. They talk ahout the
'•American invasion" as if the Rids
anil Scots were at our gates and that
a real danger threatened this country because a large number of tlie
people of the tutted States have the
gumption to see that the best agii
cultural possibilities in the world are
to be had in Canada's Last Best
West. 'IHiey forget that people from I
the ends of the earth are coming to
this country and that surety our
United States neighbors, having a
better knowledge of the beneficial
conditions that exist in Canada, living iu closer proximity and being
gifted witli good common sense,
would not fail lu avail themselves of
tbu opportunity afforded to them.
But, says one, they are Americanizing the country, which utilizes the
American currency system and even
uses American slang! - Well, Hell,
there's a go for you, with a vengeance! Because Canada has the
good sense to forget the cumbrous
pounds, shillings and pence system
and to adopt decimal currency, it is
teariug itself tree from the Empire;
und because the Canadian, when he
wants to use slang, turns to that
which is racy of the soil instead of
borrowing it from St, Cli'les or thc
Old Kent Road in London, the pillars of the Hritish constitution are
beginning to sag.     Rats!
The Canadian West is Canadian aud
always will be. This country can
assimilate and make good Canadians
of the people Horn all countries aud
all climes. If one of these peripatetic Journalists irom Englaml came to
Canada and sel lied down lor a year
or two, the Ually News firmly Ihv
lie ves that it would be possible to
make a Rood Canadian out of him.
Certainly, it would spoil his grouch
against the conditions that exist iu
this country
Now is the time ol the year when
thinning" ol apple trees should
commence. Pull oil the poorest specimen* lirst, going over the tree euro-
fully. Then go over il again and
iigaiu, hiking oil only the smallest
and   least   promising. After this
operation only the perfect ones will
remain and they will get the benefit
of tbe sap which would otherwise
have l«eu wasted on Ituit that would
have been of pool quality.
Cherries are somewhat ol a disappointment this year.    Although    tne
crop will he by no means even a partial  (allure,   the     blossoms promise,
in extreme!) heavy crop will   uot
fulfilled.      From    ten   tu twenty
[ier cent of the iruit shows u tendency io   wither before  ripening.    According      to     J.      Wm.       Cockle,
Kaslo, this condi
tion is caused by imperfect pollenwa-
ioii, due to the heavy aud almost
uiiiimioiis rains.
It is a mistake, when clearing laud
to burn everything us it lies ou the
ground. It may he a saving of labor
nui in a way it is "robbing Peter to
pay-Haul." Perhaps some time and
money is saved by sueh a method
oi getting rid of tbe troublesome uu-
dorbrush hut it must not he forgotten
that a great deal of tlie humus in the
soil is done away with also, and soil
humus is something that is mighty
hard lo replace. It can be replaced
to a certain extent by artificial fertilizers hut the cost woukl far exceed
the saviug in labor or time effected by
the original wholesale burning. The
best plan is to gather all the underbrush, slicks, roots, etc., into piles
and su dispose of them, it may cost
more and take longer hut pays in the
long run.
.Ui interesting and well illustrated
bulletin, entitlrtl "Spraying Apples"
has been issued by the Agricultural
Experimental station at Woostcr,
Ohio, of which the following is a
su miliary:
(lj Orchards sprayed with lime-
sulphur wash in the winter do not
need treatment with Bordeaux mixture before blossoming, unless this
ingredient is omitted from the spray
applied just afler blossoming.
(2) Very heavy applications of
combined spray "t Bordeaux mixture
and arsenate of lead) within a week
or ten days after the blossoms fall,
will do much to give a high percentile uf sound fruit, but in cold, wet
seasons, and we may discover In all
seasons, it russets the fruit, diminishing its value for fancy markets.
(A) Hy omitting Bordeaux from the
first treatment after bloom and using
only a heavy spray of arsenate of
lead, it may he possible to secure a
high percentage of sound fruit reasonably free from russet.
it) If Bordeaux is omitted fromj
the treatment just after bloom, as j
suggested in .1, it would probably be,
best to use it before the bloom, after
the leaves have expanded, and again
in the second spraying after bloom.
Observation alone can determine
whether it should be used in the July
spraying. If the leaves are 'yellow
and falling at this time leave out the
Bordeaux.
(5) The third spraying should be
given hy July Ifith or earlier.
(li) Trees 'should be sprayed at
least two or three times to secure the
best results. Some growers make
live applications or more.
(7) The net profit from spraying
an average sized tree from 12 to 20
years old throughout the season at a
total cost of from 30 to 50 cents is
from %:'• to $7 or more, when apples
are worlh SI a bushel.

Martin Hurrel, of Orand Forks, last
week at 1'wMcton delivered a fruit
lecture before a fair audience ol
Okanagan ranchers. Mr. Burrell,
who accompanied thc last B.C. fruit
exhibit to the Old Country, said that
he found over and over again that
people visiting the shows could not
believe that the exhibit was grown
under natural conditions out of
doors. Speakinft of Great Britain as
a fruit market, the lecturer said that
England annually imports $50,000,0110
worlh of fruit, Britisli Columbia's
chief competitors, he said, wnuld be
lbe United States, Nova Scotia and
Ontario. The demand for cheap fruit
eoiild be hetter filled by these tlinn
by British Columbia chiefly on account of HieaiH'r transport ation, so
ihat it would never pay to eater to
this class of trade. There Is, how
ever, another class of huyers, those
who will pay a good price for a really good article and this demand Mr
Burrell was most emphatic iu dcclar-
ln« that Hrilish Columbia could fill
with credit. He quoted figures Irom

BY A DREAMER
Old people have faults, like child-
reii. hut they have no mothers to forgive them.
Voting people should remember thai
you cannot trust a man simply he-
cause you see the golden rule pinned
in the front  of his hat.
These days we sit, on the sunny
side of the car, walk on the sunny
side of the street and sit in thc siin-
nv window of t-he house. Lett us
also walk on thc sunny bide of life
mul   see   the sunny   side of the rite-
it tried things of life.
When tempted to criticise the food
on me home table, remember the adage that silence is golden. Criticism
is never so exasperating to the housekeeper as at the table, where, in
spilo of hurd work amt worry, things
will occasionally appear that are not
.is she had planned,
A TOAST TO GENTLEMEN
The following tons! to gentlemen is
handed iu hy it lady contributor:
Mess 'em! They halve mir joys,
lliey double our sorrows, they treiile
i-Kpeuies, they quadruple out cures,
thev excite our magnanimity, they
increase our self-respect, waken our
■nlliusiiisiii, arouse our afTetiions,
■oiitrol our property, anil out-inan-
.euvrc us iu everything. This world
is ii dreary world without them. In
fact, I may say without prospect of
successful contradiction, that with-,
ait them this wouldn't ho much of a '
world anyhow. We love them, and
the dear things can't help it, we control them, and the precious fellows
don't know it. As husbands they are
convenient, though not always on
hand; as beaux they are by no means
''matchless." They are most agree-'
able as visitors, handy at state Tails,
and indispcnsible at oyster saloons.
I'hey arc splendid as escorts Ior some
other fellow's wife or sister, and as
friends they are tetter than women.
As our fathers they aro inexpressibly grant). A man may he a failure
in business a wreck in constitution,
not enough to boast of as beauty,
nothing as a wit, less than nothing
as a legislator for wromen's rights,
ind not very brilliant as a member
jf the press, but if our father we
overlook his short comings ami cover
his peccadilloes wilh the divine
mantle of charity. Then, as our
husbands, how we love to parade
them as paragons! In the sublime
language of the poet.
We'll lie for 'om,
We'll cry for 'cm
And if wc could we'd fly for 'em;
We'd anything hut die for 'em.
STARTING IN LIFE
Vou are soon to leave and break
,iway from all the tender ties ot
home, and j;o out to seek your fortune in the world. Let us whisper
a few words of counsel. We suppose
you wish to be rich; most people do.
We don't think riches desirable. We
should be sorry to have inherited
wealth. Mnt a competence is very
desirable, is indispensiblc. Well, the
way to get. it is by forethought to
plan, industry to execute, and pnul-
enco to keep the earnings of your
work. Get what you honestly earn,
but never take more. Money is by
no means the best thing in life. You
arc here in this world to become a
gqod man, a wise man, a just man,
an affectionate man, a religious man.
Work N»t your manhood as much as
for money, take as much pains to get,
and as much to keep it. Keep clear
nf vice, especially intemperance,
■rambling and licentiousness. These
three rum thousands of voting men
every year. He not gloomy, sour
and stiff. Cheerfulness, gaycty, liveliness nnd mirthfulness belong to your
period of life. Vou will find little
real pleasure in anything your conscience forbids. As you have opportunity, cultivate your mind and forethought, prudence and industry will
help you here as much as in getting
money. And now would you prolong lbe sunshine of life forever? Wo
must say to you there is no real
happiness in life without religion. It
is ,1 restraint from doing wrong, an
encouragement to do right, and a
(treat comfort at all times of life.
And finally, remember, though absent
(mm the sight of thc dear ones at
home you will ever live in their
hearts; and their highest earthly
wish will he that you may prove
yourself a nohle man.
THE COMFORT OF BEING A BOV
There is a comfort to be a hoy in
the amount of work he can get rid ol
doing. It is something astonishing
how slow he can go on an errand;
perhaps, he couldn't explain to himself why, when ho is sent to the
neighbor's for yeast, he stops to
stone frogs. lie is not exactly
cruel, hut he wants to see If ho can't
bit 'em. II is a curious fact about
hoys, that two will he a great deal
slower about doing anything thnn
ono. Hoys have a power of helping
each other do noihlng. But say what
vou will about the general usefulness
of hoys, a larm without a hoy would
soon come lo grief. He Is always In
demand. In the first place ho is to
do all Ibe errands, go to thc store,
post ofliee, and carry all sorts of
messages. He would like to have as
many legs as a wheel has spokes, and
rotate in the same way. This he
sometimes tries to do, and people
who have seen him "turning cart
wheels" along the side ol the road
have supposed he was amusing himself and hiding his time. He was
only trying to invent a new mode ol
locomotion, so he could economize his
legs, and do his errands with greater
dispatch. Leap-frog Is one of the
methods of getting over the ground
quickly. He has a natural genius
for combining pleasure with business.
' Thc parents who rear their sons
in idleness are doing them an unspeakable harm. Every boy is entitled to know hy actual experience
what hard manual labor means, and
to get tho blessing that comes Irom
toughened muscles and a tanned skin.
The boy who takes his hat oil when
he enters Uie house is the one who
usually has his hair combed and his
face clean, and the girl who says
"please" and "thank you," is always
prettier than tho one who forgets
these lit/Me things. You lust look
around aad ne if this is not true.

1 The passengers waiting on the platform ol one of the London under-
[ground electric stations were horri-
lied recently to see a workman suddenly lurch forward and fall on to the
line. At that moment the train
emerged irom the tunnel, and before
it could be stopped ilie tirst car passed over bis body. The question
that Immediately arose was whether
he had been killed by the train or
elcotrocuted by the'live electric rail.
Officials quickly set to work to uncouple the cars, and all present prepared themselves for the terrible
sight    ahoul    to he revealed.    When
lhe officials readied the body it bore

The tale of the mild behavior of
an escaped lion comes from thc Karl's
court exhibition. For a time it, established a sort of reign ot terror,
but a dignified calm characterized its
own conduct. During the performance with the wild beasts iu the
arena one lion and a bear succeeded
In some means in getting through a
door which leads into tlie "jungle,"
and found Uiemselves free. The Hon,
a powerful brute, proceeded calmly
through the "jungle, and walking up
to two waitresses who were walking
together, sniffed at them. The young
women thought. lot a moment the
animal was a big dog, uud then one
screamed, "It's a lion," and Uw two
rushed away, Their screams attracted the attention uf other persons who
saw ihe lion, and hastily decamped.
font inning his walk the Hon came to
the portion of the "jungle" where the
elephants stand, and leaping over
some ponies got iuto a corner. By
this time the escape had been discovered, and some of the attendants connected wilh iho s*how were in hot
pursuit. Without much trouble they
lassoed tbe lion, ami removed him to
a place of safety. The bear, which
had been enjoying his escape in a
very quiet manner, was recaptured
in even easier fashion.
A question relating to rights in
the New River Company, of London,
was argued before Mr. Justice Warrington recently, when Kir Frederick
Adair sought to ascertain whether
the New Kiver Company or the Metropolitan Water Board was liable, to
pay him a yearly rent charge of four
hundred pounds, known in-the 17th
century as "the King's clogg." It
was stated that the New River was
constructed in the reign of James 1.
by Sir Hugh Mytfdotton and twenty-
eight others. The King bore hall
the cost of the enterprise, and received half the profits. The King's
money was afterwards conveyed to
trustees (or the crown, and later assigned by Charles I. and the other
trustees to Sir Hugh in consideration
of the payment "of this yearly
"clogg." William 111. conveyed tho
"clogg" to Dennis Cooling, antl it
was' ultimately vested iu William
Adair, through whom the plaintiff derived his title. As the New ,RWer
company had heen transferred to the
Water ' Hoard, thc question arose
which authority was liable for the
continuance ol the payment. The
case was adjourned.

Rabbits have of late increased in
numbers so enormously in the uorth
ern portion of the Isle of Man as to
constitute a menace to agriculture,
The House of Keys has just passed a
bill having for its object the abolition
of the pest. The bill Heals rabbits
us vermin, and empowers occupiers oi
land to carry a gun without license
for their destruction, and to authpr-
ize other persons to cany guns without license for a like purpose. An
amendment applying a similar provision to rooks was also carried.
Thc other afternoon a steam roundabout show was travelling along the
east side ol Thirhnere lake, Cumberland, when the second engine, which
was drawing two vans containing
women and children, turned into the
lakeside wall, crashed through it,
and was precipitated with the vans
150 feet down the embankment. The
two men on the engine were killed
outright, but thc occupants of the
caravans escaped almost miraculously with slight injuries and bumps.

An extraordinary kidnapping vl.
comes from Brentford, Middlesex. A
nine-year-old boy was on nis way to
the Rothschild school tliere, when he
was suddenly seized by two n*cii at
tho corner of Ealing road und placed
in a motor car. The lad screamed*,
and a third mau, who remained in tbe
car the whole of the time, immediately drew a handkerchief from his
pocket, and placed it over the boy's
mouth. Without delay, thc car, with
its occupants—five in all, including
the chauffeur and the captive—sped
away up the road towards Eating and
out of sight. The incident was witnessed by a servant employe*! at the
Prince of Wales's hotel near by,
and he immediately reported the -affair to the police inspector. The
kidnapped boy bad lieen living with
adoptetl parents at Gunnersbury.
Recently the mother, who is said to
he well-to-do, made an application to
his guardians for the custody of the
boy, and this was refused.
The little Ashing hoat Fear Not returned to Plymouth the other afternoon from the Eddystono whiting
grounds with their' owner, William
Rowe, lying dead on board, and his
son, aged about seventeen, apparently unconscious, No reply having been received when thc craft was
hailed from the pierhead, a boat went
alongside, and the startling discovery
was made. Letor in the evening
young Rowe recovered consciousness, j
and was able to give an explanation
ol thc mystery. Ho said that his
father hove up the anchor, and then
dropped back inlo the sitting posture
in which lie was found, aim never
spoke nor stirred again. When tbe
son realised that his father had expired, he snid he felt like one in a
dream and could only remember
blankly steering the boat for Plymouth.

Brutus—at Earl's court, London, got
into the cage of a young lioness. A
terrific fight ensued hetween the two

the beasts were eventually separated,
after having badly mauled each oilier. It is feared that Nero v.

WHAT   SOME      RAILWAY     MEN
HAVE RISEN FROM
Someone has been enquiring into
the history of prominent railwav
men, by way of furnishing an answer
to the question whether the boy who
has to depend upon himself has a
(air chance iu the world. The
answer fairly dedtieihle from the
facts discovered is ihat. In the railroad business at all events, the hoy
has things all his own way. All he
has to do is Hi make good day by
day   and success hunts liim.     Thirty
ven years ago, according to a
writer in Harper's Weekly, must ,»i
the big men in the railway world ot
today were in very humble positions
W. C. Brown, vice-president of lhe
Vanderbilt system, was a section
hand allowed by an indulgent station
agent to learn telegraphy in his
spare time. Frederick I). Underwood, president of the Erie, was a
freight brakeman.    W. H. Truesdale,
Jircsident of the Lackawanna, was a
reight house clerk. W. II. Newman,
president o! the New Vork Central,
Was a freight clerk. A. J. Catling,
president of the Chicago Milwaukee
and St. Paul, was a telegraph operator. Geo, B. Harris, president ol
the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncey,
was a paymaster's clerk. Marvin
Hughltt, president of the Chicago and
Northern, was a train despatcher, J.
T. Harrahan, president of the Illinois
Central, was foreman ol a construction gang. W. H. Garrett, president
of the Seaboard Air line, was a
messenger boy. Theodore P.
Shouts, president ol thi: New York

Items of news worthy of being
chronicled in vour influential paper
occur periodically in Movie, the silver
eity of the Ooldcn West.
The citizens of the town and parts
adjacent celebrated right loyally the
list anniversary of the founding of
the Dominion of Canada in 1807, ou
the recreation grounds at the south
end of Moyie lake. The weather was
superb and the transportation for thc
pienieers down the lake was managed
by Mr. Sam Meuzies, on gasoline
launches. The football and baseball
games were keenly contested with the
visiting players from ('ranbrook. The
prizes for tho races and Caledonian
sports were of considerable value, as
the employes of the mining company
had contributed liberally ot their
shekels for this praiseworthy object.
The members of the Ladies Aid of
both tho Presbyterian and Methodist
churches had refreshment booths on
the premises and catered to the
wants of the inner man with tea,
code, cake, ice cream, etc. It was
report eil that the proceeds amounted
to over $500, a sum sufficient to
liquidate the balance of debt on each
of the churches. During the Intervals
several of the young people indulged
in the "movements of thc light fantastic" furnished by the Femie orchestra and band. On the whole the
citizens of Moyie did honor to the
memory of thc Fathers of Confederation, viz.: Sir John MacDonald, Oliver Mowat and others. When these
statesmen helped to frame the R.N.
A. Act, which was passed by the Imperial parliament, and that united
the fourWovinces of New Brunswick,
Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario
into one federation, they laid the
foundation of Canada's'fiiture greatness. Now Canada consists of nine
provinces extending from Hie Atlantic
to the Pacific ami from the Orcat
Lakes nn the south to the north.
Some of these Fathers of Confederation made tneir lives sublime—they
had heads thnt could plan and tongues that uttered wisdom. Canada
has made wonderful progress during
the two score years of Confederation,
aud it is one of the probabilities (hat
Canada wilt always maintain her
position, as Lord ' Duffcriu described
her "The brightest jewel In Hie British Jia dem."
On June 30th took place the annual

A notable feature in the first uf

was tbe absence of tireworks, lhe
authorities having forbidden their use
inside t-he city limits, as in time past
su manv Ores have heen started from
that source. We think that' other

follow the e>.amplc of Kernie iu ihis

T
HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equipped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, the
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us.  We can please you.

area of undeveloped fruit land than
any other district iu British Columbia. Fruit lands may still be purchased at a reasonable purchase
price, wii ioli same cannot be said of

Kimberley contain large deposits of
the same ore. Gold placers are Iieing worked at a good profit on

miles of ihe city.
SCHOOLS
The educational facilities are as
perfect as the board of school trustees can make them. None but well
experienced teachers are engaged on
