A MODERN SLAUGHTER HOUSE.
A representative ot the Herald
visited the new slaughter house just
completed by the 1*. Woods & Co.
about a mile from town. The building was constructed under the management of Mr. Chishulm and is une
ol the best arranged slaughter houses
in the west. The idea ul economy,
ot labor and neatness iu currying oui
tlie work has been followed in every
detail. Thc chutes for the cattle
and tlie hogs are perfect, and the interior of tlte house could hardly lie
improved upon. There is a cooling

WORLD'S FAIR NOTES.
The police department of Seattle
has been busy apprehending fake employment agents during the past
week. In one day thirty complaints
were made by persons who had paid
lees ranging from $1.00 to $3.00 for
jobs that were never received. By
means of alluring advertisements,
a dozen agencies seem to have been
doing a land-uilicc business aiming
new-comers, who have (linked to the
i-Uuth City ot Pugct Sound, from all
parts ot thc country. Some of Hum
have been ptetemliug to book applicants tor places at the Alnska-YuKou-
I'aeiih- exposition, offering attractive
salaries, without the least auWioritj
to do so. Captain ot detectives Ten-
uanl says that all complaint will be
vigorously prosecuted in nu oHort to
clear tho City ot its scourge.

meats and vegetables are purchased

GRAND OPERA   IN   CRANBROOK
JUNE 21TI1,
The following editorial appeared In
ilu' Calgary Albertan, June -ml, with
reference to tho Huston Grand
Opera company, which will appear in
Crnnbrook on Thursday, June 2itb,
in liouuod's "Faust.":'
The complaint is sometimes made
Ihal Calgary as well as other western cities is somewhat neglected in
high-class theatrical entertuinnieiits.
People do not seem lo understand
that though Calgary, and probably
Edmonton, always turn out to support an expensive and high-class production, that the cost of travelling
very great and that but few
cilies iu the west can support entertainments of this kind.
However, during the last few
years, occasionally some high-class
productions have been olTered to CJal-
\ people, and have been supported
fairly well.
The theatrical managers are ready
trough to bring good attractions il
Ihe people show an appreciation of
them. Tlie people get what they
ask for to a limited extent. They
may be able to get good productions
it ihey support good productions,
and they will not get good productions if they decline to support good
productions,
Tbe theatrical manngers nre making au experiment next week with a
roallj excellent company of very
high-class opera. It is the first experiment of its kind that tins ever
been made in this country, and thc
future ol the dramatic entertainments in Ibis country will lie fashioned, to a great extent, by the way
that this company is received. II it
is supported by the people, doubtless
the theatrical managers will lie encouraged to repeat this kind of a
programme. If it falls down, why
we must put up with the minstrel
show and the melodrama. The
people have It in their own hands to
frame out their own destiny in this
respect.
As the drama is much more than a
important part in the molding and
mere entertainment and opera has an
developing of a people and lt is highly important that even in a new
country tiie entertainment of a people
should be of a wholesome nature, the
Albertan makes no apology for editorially recommending that thc
people support thc series ot operas
whieh will bo presented during the
coming week.
Mrs. R. Dorr, widow ot the late
Bob Dorr, has returned from California, and will take up the development of tlie Grey stone mining property on Wild Hone Creek.
in buggies, democrats, motor cars,
on horse back, on bicycles and on
fool. It is difficult to estimate how
many people were there -because the
contour of the country makes it possible ami pleasant to spread out, but
there were a whole lot. Then tire
Indians. There were Kootenav Indians, Lower Kootenay Indians,
Plegans and Black Feet, all in their
finest war paint and feathers. The
bright colors of their costumes blending but contrasting bcautilullv with
the surrounding dark -green of tho
trees and tlte 'bright green of tho
Irrigated clover fields of the Mission. The religious ceremony ol the
procession commenced at 2.30 in the
afternoon. A firing party of It
dians were in advance, then followed
the children of thc Mission school,
under the guidance of thc sable rolled sisters, the priest escorted by
tlte acollkes with burning incense and
then tinder a silken canopy tlte priest
carrying the Sacred Hopt. After
them came crowds upon crowds of
Indians fprming a train almost halt a
mile in length. On the route of the
procession were erected arches ot
greenery. At each arch a salute was
(lied hy the firing party.
The Indian hoys band, under tne direction of Bandmaster Corrison, rendered many selections and on all
hands compliments could be heard
on the improvement ot the St. Eugene hand. No one could sec the
Corpus Chrlsti procession at the
Mission without being edified and
feeling that after all there is something more in life than a hard work-
a-day world and the almighty dollar.

THE ROYAL HOTEL.
There are a number of good hotels
in Cranbrook, in fact they are all
good, but each has its own particular niche to fill and they each and
everyone nil it. The Royal, since
it came under the management ot W.
A. Rollins, of Lucan, has become
an ideal hostelry to spend a day, a
week, a month or a year. Mr. Rollins, with bis Hag lieutenant, "Buck"
Taylor, do all iu their power to
make llie guests at the Royal happy
whilst inside ils hospitable portals.
The rooms and dining room service
arc second to none in the Kootenays
and llie furniture and appointments
of tbe house are elegant and
homelike. The terms arc reasonable ami half a dozen minutes talk
with "Bill" Rollins will make you
feel good and dispel the blues at all
limes. The Royal hotel is royal in
other ways besides in name.
BAND CONCERT.
The Cranbrook City hand gave their
usual weekly concert on Monday
.■veiling. To say the music was
good would be meager praise, lt
was excellent, in tact every lime
Bandmaster Corrison brings out his
boys they do better than they did the
time before. A feature that everyone was delighted with and upon
Which everyone commented was the
conspicuousness by its absence of

may not be too extravagantly term-
d "meteoric" Ior, although just past
ber twentieth birthday, she has already played the leading roles in
three of Chicago's most important
aud   successful   productions, namely,
His Honor, the Mayor," "The
Land of Nod," and "The Three
(l races." She began in thc chorus
at llie age ot sixteen, but a short
time atterwards was sent abroad to
complete Iter vocal training. Returning she again entered tlie chorus
ranks, hut was understudy for thc
prima donna. The latter was one
night absent (rom the cast, and then
and there dimpled Adele was given
the opportunity which she promptly
grasped. Her success was so t-wI
and sure that she was given the role
permanently. She has never been
anything but the leading figure in
every company sh« has adorned since.
She was featured in "Thc Song
Minis." a burlesque on grand opera
by Victor Herbert, and has played
the title role in the same composer's
'Malu'lte," and numerous just as important triumphs nre to her credit.

NEW RAILWAY ROUTE.
CRAWFORD CREEK COUNTRY   IS
INTERESTED IN SURVEY.
Crawford May, June 11.—The warm
weather with rains, which caused su
much high water in the rivets and
creeks and played havoc in so many
instances, brought a heavy freshet in
Crawford CreeK and at one timt
threatened to destroy the lower
bridge. Huge trees were borne
down upon the llood with terrific
force, with the danger ot forming a
jam at thc bridge piers. Oscar
Burden and others, however, were on
baud with dynamite bombs, which
were used directly a jam began to
form and by guod work and judgment kept the channel clear. The
loss of the bridge would have been a
very unfortunate matter tor tbe
settlers on the east side ot tbe creek.
The report which appeared in The
Nelson Daily News that the Great
Northern railway has a survey party
making a reconnoitre up the valley
of lbe St. Mary's river from Fort
Steele towards Crawford Bay has
aroused some interest here. Some
years ago, Henry Roy, ot the Silver
Hill mine and others secured a charter for what was then called the
Crawford Bay & St. Mary's railway
company. The name was afterwards (bunged and an extension of
time was granted tlie new company
on various grounds, thus preventing
tbe lapsing of thc charter. It is
possible this company may be negotiating with the great Northern. Tlie
source of Crawford Bay is in the
same locality as the headwaters of
tbe wesl fork ot tlie St. Mary's
river, which (lows into the Kootenay
river at Kort Steele. There are
trails from Crawford Bay to Fort
Steele and Cranbrook over two
passes, one over the Hooker creek
livid*- and the other over Sawyer
pass. These trails were used a good
ileal in 1*800-07*08 by prospectors and
several pack trains used to takw In
lupplics to the St. Mary's country
from Crawford May. Since the contraction of the Crows Nest railway
these trails have not been used very
much. Though these passes into
Easl Kootenay arc somewhat high
lliey ilo not offer insuperable diHind-
lies io the construction of a railway. The lowest pass and tlie one
aflording the best grade is Rose's
pass, called after the unfortunate
Henry Rose, who was hanged in Nelson some years ago, for a murder
unlimited on the shore of the Upper Arrow lake, and who at one time
owned a number ot mineral claims
on the east side ot the divide. The
distance between Cranbrook and
Nelson would be, roughly speaking,
about half as hmg as by way of
Kootenay Landing.

GOOD  WORDS   FOR CRANHROOK.
(Fernie Five Press.)
Cranbrook is nothing if not progressive. Tlie latest index of our
neighbors enterprise has come to
hand in the form of a neat little
brtx-him- entitled "SOUTH EAST
KOOTENAY" and "CRANBROOK,"
British Columbia. lt is compiled
and lssuvd under the auspices of the
Cranbrook Board of Trade, and is a
mechanical and typographical product that does credit lo the job department ot tbe Cranbrook Herald.
Tbe booklet presents in attractive
and convincing form the various tea-
lures ol Cranbrook aud vicinity that
would appeal to the man who might
be seeking investment, a business
opening, or a home. It deals with
tbe city as a railway* point, a mercantile'and industrial center and as
the hub of the finest fruit raising
district in the world, lt discusses
the climatic conditions and the
natural advantages of tbe city's situation from tbe standpoint ot the
business man and tbe home maker.
Altogether it impresses us as a
most practical move in an advertising campaign and it is certain
that Cranbrook will reap the reward
of the business sagacity ot her citizens.

A farmer near Boston, finding that

Notwithstanding these low prices the
farmer is able to make a profit, with

"A MESSAOE FROM MARS"  EXCELLENTLY PRESENTED.
"A Message From Mars" was ably
produced by an excellent company at
tlie Auditorium on Tuesday nlghl lu
a fair audience. The play is almost
too well known tu need description
but it may be said brielly that the
plot centres around Horace Parker,
played by Borcsford Lovetl, who is
represented to lie a specimen ot a
man wholly given up lo selfishness
aud egotism of the worst kind and lo
his reform, perhaps it should be said
awakening, through the Influence aud
power of Tiie Messenger From Mars,
a figure in green and shining armor
played with considerable strength by
Alfred Beaumont. The interest is
well sustained throughout the play
as a play is sometimes lost sight of
in obvious sermonizing.
Ileresford Lovett as thc utterly selfish and pscudo scientific man ol
comfortable means aud with a fiance
who adores him acted liis part almost perfectly. lie was most effective in the scenes iu which he appeared as Horace, the man of wealth.
As a ragged tramp, hungry and
scorned by his friends, Mr, Lovett is
one ot two cases was highly melodramatic. Miss Margaret Dunne, as
Minnie Templar, acted with grace
and facility a pleasing part. Maurice
Cass as an abandoned old tramp, an
engineer fallen to the depths through
drink, gave a clever interpretation
which could hardly gave been improved upon. The remaining members of the east are loo numerous
to mention but it may brielly be
said that the parts were adequately
and suitably 111 It'll. The play was
received witli a great deal of applause, the close of the second net receiving I wo i in tain calls.

TALKING STRAIGHT BUSINESS.
The Muyie Leader, speaking ol the
ultitiHlc ot a newspaper in a town
in which it is published, saying nothing of the general benefit to the entire community that the publication
id the newspaper furnishes mouth In
ami month out, but referring only
to the faet that the money received
by a newspaper from the business
men of the town is spent with the
business men of the town says that
should Im- sulllcient reason for any
newspaper ulflce that plays square
witli the town to be entitled to tin-
business of the town. Thc Herald
pays thousands of dollars in wages
und every dollar of that money is
spent with the business men of the
lown nml thc Herald feels gratified
over the faet that thc business men
of the town show their appreciation
bv giving thc Herald thc business
that keeps its large force busy. Yet
lbe Leader's article will apply to
some towns:
Thc Moyie Leader works week
in and week out for the upbuilding of Moyie, and almost every
dollar that the publisher receives is spent right here in town.
The merchant, thc hotel man,
the tailor, thc water company,
the telephone and electric light
company all get their share, and
if u subscription is circulated thc
Leader ollice is seldom, if ever,
overlooked.
Yet when a circular comes from
a Winnipeg printing firm offering
t-o do work a little cheaper than
can possibly lie done in Moyie
some of these same firms almost
break their necks to give the
Wimrlpeg firm their trade. This
Winnipeg firm never spent a dollar in Movie nor never wilt. It
never paid a cent's taxes hen1,
never paid   a month's wutcr rent
or electric light bill, ils employes never bought a meal nor a
sua" ui clothes in Moyie, or never
invested a dollar in an enterprise
tout wuulu benefit the town,
never Itclped to build a sidewau
ur put up a dollar tor a eeleura-
UOii, never paid a month's oiuco
lent or cuntnuuleil a dollar to a
cimritable purpose it cares
nut whether Muyie is in Kast
Kootenay, in the Klondike or in
hull just so lung us it can get a
lew orders from here.
The Saturday fcivcuing Sunset, ui
Vancouver, entered upon the third
year uf its usefulness last Sulunlu)-
t ne sunset is une uf the must wel-
■oiue exchanges thai comes to the
Herald's exchange table, because—
well, because, Us the Sunset. We
have tu look uiruugh newspaper alter
newspaper and thus gather the news
and it is generally a tiresome task,
mil when il comes to tlie Sunset n
gues one a -spirit uf rest. lis
articles are piiuy aud tu tne puiui,
written in a readable manner, which
gets away from the stilled, stereotyped form uf the average daily or
even weekly. The Herald is glad
Uial the Sunset has twenty-live tliuu-
sand readers because twenty-Jive
thousand people will be the belter
fur reading the Sunset. The Herald
is also glad to learn that the Sunset
financially a success und oui)
hopes that as Vancouver und the
province grow, its circulation will increase as the excellence uf the paper
deserves,
Novelty in a solar eclipse seems
scarcely possible, for the phenomena
even tnrougli smoked glass arc su
much the    same     that the event
comtuum-place except to tbe
children. lint Professor Urnshcar,
of Allegheny, Pennsylvania, says
that the coming eclipse of the sun
this evening, just before sunset, will
lie unique. Kor a few seconds it will
be annular (tbat is, a rim uf light
will lie seen around the earth-shaoe);
theti ii will become a total eclipse
uud change again to annular for a
second time. Professor Brasltear
tells us:
"Tne writer cannot find record
uf such au occurrence iu any history of astronomy, although we
have records of annular eclipses
lor thousands of years. The eclipse us a partial phase of greater or lesser magnitude will sweep
over the North American continent from the north, 'decreasing iu
size as U -passes through Canada
and the States."
Great Britain now has '111 fighting
ships under twenty yeurs old,
against the jno of Germany and the
'lit of France. Tbe English battleship licet numbers 5!', against the
li ol Germany aud the 21 uf France,
while the armored cruisers numlter,
respectively, 3«, 12 und 2&. Kngland has now UN submarines and Ui
destroyers, against the eight submarines and !J7 destroyers of Germany. So it still seems fairly safe
lo say that Britannia rules the
waves.
 f	
CRANBROOK'S   TRANSITION   TO
iUKTROl'OLlTAN  IMPORTANCE.
Marking nu epoch iu the development of Cranbrook, of deeper sllml-
licaucc than may he generally understood, is the coming to this city
next Thursday of the Boston Grim!
Opera company for one performance
ol tlte master works of music in
English, at tho Auditorium.
Entertainments of distinctly high-
class have been so infrequent iu this
city, in spite of the enterprise uud
persistence of thc local management,
that such as have been induced to
come this way have generally been
rewarded with overflowing houses.
But tlie paucity of these offerings can
lie readily understood when it is remembered that there urc hut six
cities on tbe direct line between Winnipeg and Vancouver having cither
population to draw from or a suitable place in which to harbor attractions ot class.
Ami at least two ot the cities
have auditoriums utterly Inadequate
for tbe presentation of scenic productions such us are carried hy thc
better class of travelling companies.
The distance between Winnipeg and
Vancouver is greater by some three
hundred miles than that from New
York to St. Louis, in the States,
ami in playing thc direct route between those cities thc very best
companies may put iu anywhere (rom
four to ten weeks al an expense for
railroad transportation alone ot less
than half the regular tare liei ween
the Canadian cities. With this tremendous disadvantage in mind, Cranhrook people who have been hoping
for years to have brought to them
the best entertainment, dramatic
and musical, obtainable, should sec
to it thut thc initial effort of those
interested in bringing the Boston
Grand Opera company to this eity
are given thc encouragement their
enterprise ami liberality deserves.
While the pecuniury considerations
involved may he of slight interest to
local play-goers, they will hardly fail
to recognize the fact that grand
opera is thc apotheosis.of music-
drama, ami singers capable of adequately interpreting the works ot the
masters arc developed only through
years of careful training. It is a far
cry from the prima donna (so called)
of a modern musical comedy, who
sings a lilting melody with a choral
background, to tlte startling arias ot
U'onora in "II Trovatore", or the
tremendously dramatic and vocally
exhausting requirements of such a
role as Lucia in Donizetti's "Lucia
di Lammermoor", Not alono upon
the soprano is the burden to be
borne in grand opera, tor the
tenor, contralto, baritone and basso
among the first principals have their
equally exacting roles to blend into
the harmonious whole; thc chorus
must be coin-posed of men and women
who possess real voices, ami the orchestra must be composed of highly
trained musicians. Caruso, the famous tenor, is pnid more for a single
performance than nny eompnnv that
ever visited   Cranbrook costs for    a
whole week. While Managing Director Starling does not claim to have
a Caruso iu his organization, he does
claim—ami reports from Winnipeg,
where the company played a successful engagement    ol two   weeks, and
ther cities, apparently justify, his
'.intention—that he has the greatest
organization of singers that has ever
attempted the presentation ol grand
opera in English. Madame Judith
Fiancini, the prima donna soprano
<t the company, is in ber 2f>th year.
She was educated in Rome, Italy,
and sang in the principal theatres in
Europe prior to her engagement in
this country some eighteen months
ago. She has a repetoirc of some
thirty operas, and will tie heard In
me of her favorite roles. Her voice
Is of wonderful power and sweetness,
md has a range from I), below the
stall" to E. above high C. She was
pronounced the greatest soprano ever
heard in Winnipeg, by critical writers of that city.
Siguora Grcea Ricci is the principal contralto of the organization,
and has challenged the admiration ol
audiences everywhere by her wonderful voice, combined with histrionic
ability of extraordinary effectiveness,
Slgnor Piero Gherardi, principal
tenor, will be heard on Thursday evening in the great role of
"Faust" in "Faust." He has been
Identified with the metropolitan
forces in New York, and is conceded
to be tlie best dramatic lyric tenor
now singing in English. Signor
Achitte Albert! Is perhaps the best
known member ot thc organization,
for he bas held high place in grand
opera in this country for many years.
No better acting baritone has ever
impersonated the trying characters
in grand opera than Albert!. He is
the artistic stage director ol thc
company. Mr. John McDonald,
principal basso, is a young man with
a flue stage presence and a voice said
to be equal to any exacting part,
The Misses Lois Paschal) and Cora
I lay den,    sopranos;   Freda Corrison,
mitral to; Edward E. Olds, tenor;
Signor Daniel Cantori, baritone, and
Henry Hamilton, basso, arc also
principals of quality. The chorus is
composed of fresh young voices, and
many of its members are graduates
of famous Boston schools. Complete
scenic equipment is cacricd for all of
the scenes of the operas requiring
special settings, and thc orchestra
will lend valuable aid to what
promises to be the most -brilliant performance ever seen in Cranbrook.

at home.
Home is tho residence not merely
a woman to share his lite, it is
place for the affections to unfold and
Jevelop themselves; for children to
love, and learn, and play in; tor
Husband and wife to toil smilingly
together, aud make life a blessing.
The object of all ambition should be
to be happy at home; if wc are not
happy there we cannot \w elsewhere;
it is tbe best proof of the virtues ol
a family circle to see a happy fireside.
.Man is naturally a home-loving animal. In fact, mosl animals arc
Hume-loving. And when a man asKs
a woman io share his life, iy is
usually taken as a gentle hint that
nc wants her to make him a home
and tanc a sort of general oversight
ui liis affairs and a special oversight
oi himself. He liKcs to know tbat
siro docs things for him just for
uic reason Uial site loves him, and ia
interested in him and his well-being,
uc loves ins home inure if there it
some impress of ber personality upon
ii. He liKes best the meal she prepares for Win. Ol course, he says
very little—perhaps nothing—of all
Litis, being a man.
lu too many families the mother
assumes the care of everything and
net daughters are bat genteel lounges iu ihe household. Thu worn
which could he so easily and quickly
done if each bore a share, is left for
ilie bands already weakened by heavy
minims, and when at last the poor
Household drudge dies at her post,
.sue is remembered with pity not unmixed with contempt because she resigned the post of ruler of tlic huuse-
hold to become its slave, and her
daughters are left to ruin other
Homes witli idleness and ignorance.
Hut there are no such daughters
among our households.
A man and wife when irritated will
often say things to each other for
which lliey are sorry the next morning; but pride  often keeps them from
ojifcssiug their faults, and the little
lillcreuces grow until a divorce suit
ii an assault aud battery case remits. When you have made a mistake, be man or woman enough to
ask forgiveness, and you will sail
along on ilowory beds of ease instead
of jolting over lbe rocky beds of discord.
No boy, no girl, can ever come to
be utterly bad who remembers only
love and tenderness and sweetness as
associated with father and mother in
the old-time home. Give them manly and womanly example, give them
training, give them the inspiration
ot devoted lives, give them these
higher, deeper things. Do not care
so much as to whether you are accumulating money, so that you can
leave them a fortune. We really believe that the chances arc against
that being a blessing for a ouy. ttut
leave them an accumulated fortune of
memories and inspirations and examples and hopes, so that they are
rich in brain and heart and soul.
Then if you happen to leave them a
fortune besides, if they have all these,
the fortune will be shorn ol its possibilities of evil, and will become an
instrument of higher and nobler good.
After all that has been said about
rare treasures of art and nature that
may lend attraction to a home and
ils surroundings, it remains that the
fairest home ornaments are bright,
joyous faces; and where these are
wanting, all else goes for little.
Bright and joyous faces always accompany warm and loving hearts
which ull true home-makers must
possess. Hence all who intend making homes should look carefully into
their own hearts; for only when these
are right can they expect their home-
making to prove satisfactory. Warm
hearts make bright and cheerful
hearths, but thc warmest hearth cannot thaw thc icy heart. Love is
the great home-maker, that makes
even the drudgery of housekeeping a
pleasure, mid home life a foretaste
of the bliss of heaven. One cannot
get too much love into one's home-
making, but easily too little.
Voluntary obedience in the home
and not compulsion, is what is wanted; and tho parents that are
even-tempered, not harsh or unjust,
are teaching this lesson most successfully. A mother and father that
have not learned self-control, are not
capable of controlling children. It
is a burdensome thing to many t-o
lead tho children the way they should
go, for it is very necessary that
parents follow the same path; wc
can't preach any more than wc live,
and the sermons from which the
child draws his ideas take place in
llie home—no teacher, no minister
can do the parent's work. Your
child hns a body, mind and heart,
all in your keeping; if you do your
work well, when life's fitful fever
shall have passed, for you, the memory of your children will go hack
to von, with gratitude that they
were sent out in the world with
sound bodies, cultivated minds, and
pure hearts.
"UE COURTEOUS" AT HOME.
Why not he polite? How much
does it cost to say, "I thank vou?"
Why not practice It at home—to vour
husband, to your wife, to vour
children, to four domestics? If a
sl ranger does vou some little act of
courtesy, how sweet the smiling
acknowledgment! If vour husband

SAYS.
A clipping from the Brandon
(Man). Sun, tells of the Boston
Grand Opera company:
"For tiie first time iu the history
of Brandon, lho citizens were last
night given an opportunity of hear
ing, as a community, grand opera uf
the highest calibre, when Mr. G. S,
Starling presented the Boston Grand
Opera      company     in       Gounod's
Faust."
In the first instance let it be said
that the performance was brilliant
in its success. No liner or more
pleasing introduction into thc beauties of the great 11alian operas
could have been imagined than the
performance given at the Auditorium.
The audience was literally earned
away, and its approbation was expressed with a lavisbness that knew
no bounds.
Madame Fraucini has a high
soprano voice of beautiful* quality,
aud she sings and acts with all the
verve of a young Italian girl who
feels the part she is portraying. She
lias line breath control and admirable
technic. Her artistic efforts in the
strenuous role were fully recognized
and applauded by a critical audience.
Signor Ghcrardi, the tenor, is
another remarkable singer. His
voice is full of musical metal. lie
sings with artistic feeling and embodies his own natural temperament
in the role he fills.
Signor Canton is a baritone of the
first water with a rich vibrant voice.
His declamation is superb, and ho is
filled with a dramatic energy tiiat
carries the very element of life into
the scenes in which he appears.
The basso of the company, Mr.
lohn Macdonald, was perhaps as
great a revelation to his hearers us
was Signor Ghcrardi. liis voice is
nl that deep, resonant timbre that
thrills every fibre, and though he is
still quite young, with little more
than a year's experience in grand
pera, he has a delightfully strong
stage presence.
The Boston Grand Opera company
will present "Faust" at the Auditorium on Thursday night, .lune 21.

A REMARKABLE FIND.
While workmen were engaged in removing tlte rock and debris from
the old channel of the river between
the second and third chutes at
Fort Frances, Ont., to make way
for the Ing power dam on the
American side, they unearthed in one
of the pot holes in the rock a most
remarkable collection of Indian weapons aud other articles, comprising
tomahawks, spear-beads, arrowheads, sturgeon fish hooks, etc., all
made out of pure copper and hardened to the consistency of steel.
The articles found are quite bright
in appearance and are of superior
workmanship, being evidently thc
work of the prehistoric race who
fashioned the mounds, ornaments aud
utensils of the early days.
That they possessed the knowledge
of tempering copper, now a lost art,
is quite evident from the specimens
found. How they came hero is
mystery, but the general belief Is
that a party of Indians while endeavoring   to   land   or make -a portage
as they are, they disturb peace     or lost control of their canoe and   were

ORANBROOK AS A RAILWAY CENTER.
It is a Divisional Point on llie Crows Nest Pass line ot
the C.P.R. This line runs through to thc Pacific Const via
Nelson and thc Lakes, which are unsurpassed for beauty.
It is in direct touch with Spokane via thc Sou-Spokane
road, lieing only seven hours distant, and a through train iB
now miming to Portland, Ore. Double daily connections
with spukunc train service—one through train and one
local.
It is the point where you get off the Spokane Express to
catch the trains for Kimbcrley, Nelson, Rosslund and other
Kootenay points.
It is the Divisional Point and Terminal of the North
Star Branch of thc C.P.U., which runs north into the rich
mining, lumbering and farming country of the St. Marys
Valley, passing Wyclifie, Portcous, Marysville and Kimberley.
CAPITAL   OF    EAST     KOOTENAY   IS   CBANBIIOOK.
MERCANTILE AND GENERAL DISTRIBUTING CENTER
It is the headquarters of the County Court and the Judge
resides here.    Supreme Court Sittings are held here.
It is the seat of the Provincial Government Ollice and thc
residence of the Government Agent.
It is thc Port of Entry for the Customs of Canada.
EAST KOOTENAY FROM AN INDUSTRIAL STANDPOINT.
Cranhrook is the industrial and commercial center ot
this District, its chief industries being :—
Railroading. Sash and Door Works.
Lumbering. Mixed Farming.
Mining. Fruit Growing.
Smelting of Minerals.
With the utilization of nearby waterfalls, for thc production of electrical energy for manufacturing purposes, Cranbrook will naturally become a manufacturing center of great
importance and the cultivation of the surrounding agricultural land will ensure to its citizens, at reasonable prices,
those products of farm, orchard and dairy at present being
imported from the States and other outsidepoints, simply
because wc have not got the people to grow the stuH here.
In this district we have eighteen saw mills, employing in
thc neighborhood of 1250 men.
Railroad shops employing men.
Divisional point on Crows Nest Pass Railway. Total
payroll $65,000 monthly.
Two sash and door factories ami planing mills.
A cigar factory.
A steam laundry.
NEW BUILDINGS.
During ltlO!) new buildings will he erected to the value
of $250,-000, which will include $60,000 new brick and stone
public school, (foundation commenced); a $20,000 bank building, $10,000 Masonic Temple and many, fine residences, besides
extensions to tbe shops and round houses of the Canadian
Pacific Railway to the extent of $100,000. Thc City of
Cianbrook contemplates spending $10,000 on street improvements alone.
There are a number ot projected lines of railroad, with
Cranbrook ns their destination.
The Kootenay Central Railway has a charter tor a railway running up this valley connecting with the main line
ot tho Canadian Pacific Railway at Golden—which will pass
through an ideal fruit and mixed farming country, also
abounding in silver-lead and copper mines and large forests
of timber.
Thv Crawford Pay Railway bas a charter tor a road to
run up the St. Marys Valley, west to Crawford Bay, which
would give Cranbrook and Kast Kootenay direct communication with Nelson, with only a very short passage on the
Kootenay Lake, and would open up a rich mining, lumbering
and farming section of thc country.
As a divisional point, Cranbrook is assured indefinitely
of being the headquarters of all railway men working north,
south, east and west.
CLIMATE.
The climate of East Kootenay is, to say the least, ideal,
and is recognized by all who come here, either to stay or
In going through, to he   something unsurpassed in Canada.
Wo have four distinct seasons.
Spring opens up about the middle of March, with beautiful sunny weather, though there is a cold snap in thc air.
The snow leaves the open land about this time, and hangs
a little longer under the timber. Ploughing ean be commenced about the beginning of April, and the growth in the
ground begins about May 1st.    Spring rains are frequent.
Summer is hot, but there is nearly always a light
hrecze, and the heat is not oppressive. Thc rainfall is
light, about 15 in. to 20 in. oa the average all thc year
round, including snow fall. -June is our wet month, July
August and September, beautiful weather.
Winter commences about the beginning of December, ihe
first snow fnll coming about the middle of the month;
generally there is a cold snap before Christmas, and another
in February, lasting in each case about a week; but though
cold, the air is dry and no wind. There is good sleighing
all winter, from about December 15th to March 1st. This
district is particularly recommended hy the medical profession ns very healthy, particularly for any disease ot a
pulmonary nature,
HAS EAST KOOTENAY A MARKET?
Most decidedly it has, and its own farmers and producers
raimot even supply thc loeal demand.
Imports into the country may bo conservatively cbti-
muted as follows :
Produced here.
Eggs     8,000 cases      300    cases
Cheese   70,000 pounds  none pounds
Butter  208,000 pounds  4,500 pounds
Ham, Bacon, etc.300,000 pounds  ,..    200 pounds
Lard  150,000 pounds  10,000 pounds
Beet    0,000 head    1,500     head
Pork     5,000 head        800     head
Apples   15,000 boxes      100    boxes
Potatoes    1,500 tons      100     ton?
This district can supply all the above, having everything
necessary to produce them: climate, water, soil, area,
range. It only requires thc people to come in and raise
them.
Fruit is largely Imported every year trom the United
States, ns the quantity at present grown in this district is
limited to a dozen or so orchards only, and whilst these
are producing well, lt will be some time before those now
being planted will be bearing. Fruits o! all kinds have beer
grown here with great success and fruit growing is beyond
the experimental stage. The East Kootenay market is
growing larger every day. Population is increasing in the
city and district, nnd the farmer and wholesaler have an
additional market to cater to each year. The East Kooto*
nay market extends throughout Alberta and as far east as
Winnlprg, Man., and it will bo impossible to ever dream ot
satisfying the vast Prairie Provinces, nnd thc Crows Nest
Pass with any ot the commodities which we produce, especially fruit. The. enormous coal fields of the Crows Nest
pass will take all we can grow and never feel thc effects ot
it in their market, nnd as our production increases this de-
mnml will increase three-tola. There is coal enough
there to last for thousands ot years, shipping at tlie rate of
500(1 tons per diem, and they have no land capable of growing any produce, aud East Kootenay District being tho
closest producing country, it must necessarily be able to
quote tbe lowest price and capture the trade.
RAILWAY TIE MANUFACTURE.
All tics for   supplying the   C.P.R.    tor thu districts ol
Western Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Eastern B.C.
are made in   this vicinity,   making au earning capacity   of
$500,000 per annum.
A FRUIT RAISING DISTRICT.
The finest strawberries in Western Canada arc produced
in ami around Cranbrook. All kinds of fruit can be raised
without the least difficulty. The day will come when the
supply ol fruit for thc Crows Nest Pass Coal Fields and tbe
great prairie market ot the Northwest will depend entirely
ou the Kootenay District.
Apple trees were planted In East Kootenay as far as
25 years ago and since then, at diflerent times, other orchards have been planted, with the result that we have, ull
over Kast Kootenay, orchards with trees of ditlcrcut ages,
producing magnificent apples, plums, cherries and pears.
They all do well. Small fruits, such as raspberries, entrants and gooseberries arc grown in abundance.
Apples that have so tar been tried and that have prov-d
a complete success arc :
Wealthy. Yellow Transparent.
Snow. King ot Tompkins Co.
Duchess of Oldenburg. Grimes' Golden Pippin.
Red Astrakaii. Mcintosh Red.
Russian Transparent. Jonathan.
G ravens tein. Wagner.
Blenheim Orange. Northern Spy.
CRABS.
Transcendant.
PEARS.
Flemish Beauty. Bartlett.
PLUMS.
Yellow Egg. Peach Plum.
CHERRIES.
Montmorency.
Numbers of orchards throughout the district and around
Cranbrook will give evidence ot successful production from
tlte above varieties.
Land can be acquired with or without irrigation.

The total Customs duties collected for 1008 were $35,000
nnd the Inland Revenue $11,000.

The population of Cranbrook when the last Dominion
census was taken in lltOli was 200(1; the estimated population ot Cranbrook and its immediate surroundings today
amounts to 3500.

$1,000,000.
Rate of taxation, including schools, 18 J mills.

FACTS   ABOUT FARMING.
.Seeding of spring wheat as well as tlio sowing of other
crops depends entirely on the opening ut spring, as it is
earlier some years than others. it is usually commenced
abuut the 1st ol April and (all wheat about the middle of
August. Fall wheat is grown quite extensively and ibis is
looKed upon as an ideal (all whv./. country, the usual yield
being about 30 bushels to the ncre.
The vegetables produced in this district in quality and
quantity aie exceptionally good. Ten tons of potatoes per
acre is an average crop. Sugar beets have gnen remarkable results and Ibis eould readily be made one of the
staple industries ul this district. Hay makes a great pro-
duet, as it fetches su good a price, and a largo tonnage is
grown in this district. On account ol the large lumbering
operations carried on here, a great quautnv has to be shipped into the country.
This is, besides au excellent stock rais.ug country, there
being so large a free range, supplied with lakes and line wild
feed. Sheep have been Drought m during recent years, and
on account ut the success met with, there is likely to be a
greater interest taken m thc raising ul this stock horn
uow on.
NATURE UF THE LAND.
East Kootenay may be aptly described as a triangular
valley, with the in ler national Boundary as its base, and
bounded thereby on the South; by the Alberta boundary on
the East and by thc Selkirk Ran-:e on the west, lt is the
lust fruit bearing section of British Columbia reached alter
leaving tlic beautiful plains ol Alberta. Tbe country is
a park-like wooded country, and generally speaking a buggy
cau be driven through tne timber almost anywnere. oa
each side of the valley is a great range uf the Rocky Mountains, which rise steeply from their base upwards. From
the base the land run's east and west m level terraces,
dropping by degrees until the level oi thc Kootenay River,
wluch runs north and south through the center ol the
valley. These terraces constitute the bench lands, and are
intercoursed with streams and creeks, upon which beaver
have worked extensively in the past, forming rich hay land
of loamy soil in places, which are now nearlv all occupied
as mixed iarms, growing hay, lail wheat, fruity etc. On the
sides of the larger rivers running through this district are
large areas of bottom land, clear to a great extent, aud
partly covered with a growth of poplar and willow. These
make rich hay producers and are sub-ungated from tbe
river seepage. Tht: majority of the land in this district,
however, is the bench la:.d, the best and richest of which is
slightly wooded and now being cleared ramaly all over the
district. Wherever timber is found, a good sub-soil can be
looked for; the soil is a rich loam, the product ol ages of
decaying vegetable matter, and a small percentage of clay.
It is close-grained, yet very loose and loamy when worked;
underlying this soil is a very deep stratum of gravel
cemented together with a glacial moraine. This is impervious to moisture and assists the top soil to retain its
moisture. These bench lands are -senerallv slightly sloping,
making thc imder-dralnage conditions all that could l-e desired. This land can be cleared and made ready for
ploughing at an average cost of from (30.00 to 160.00 per
acre, dependent upon the si7.c and quantity of the stumps.
The best crops have been raised from these bench lands, and
only very exceptionally has a year gone by when irrigation
has been found necessary. However, there is plenty of
water for ibis process and many Irrigation systems are now
going in.
The wild products of this soil consist ot four varieties of
native grasses, namely, wild timothy, red top, bunch grass
and vetch or pea vine. These grasses grow thickly on the
ground and in many places are more than knee high. They
grow abundantly under thc timber, but it has been prou-d
that after the timber has been cut down, the bunch *;rat-s
grows up stronger, forcing any weeds or weak timber grosses
away, killing them altogether. Wild cherries, strawberries,
sarvisbcrrics, huckleberries and raspberries also thri c nn
this soil.
