It is a pity that the Florence Roberts company was scheduled to play
in CranbrooK on Saturday night, because It is a pity that everyone in
Cranbrook who loves that which is
really good in the theatrical line,
who admire an artistic presentation
of a play could not have been at the
Auditorium and witnessed what was
perhaps the most enjoyable treat
ever given in Cranbrook. "The
House uf Bondage" is a story of the
wrongs suffered by a wife under the
English divorce laws, and Miss Roberts, in the title role, was pleasing in
thc extreme. As an actress she is
exceedingly charming, as she possesses the ability to present the various
phases of the character that she represents in a natural manner, and
that is true acting. Thurtow Bergen, as Paul Uertrand, the London
surgeon, w-ho loved the wronged wife,
was simply superb in the work that
he performed. Forcible, dignified,
showing a love of his profession and
vet acknowledging like an honorable
man thc love of the woman, he made
a wonderful impression upon his
audience, and one that will not soon
be forgotten. Miss Warrington, the
scheming ami wily duchess, played a
most difficult part that does not appeal to the sentiment of an audience,
and yet her ability as an actress
won "the plaudits of all. The cast I
was a well balanced one. Through-1
out there was no working for sensational Climaxes, but Oh the contrary,
every act progressed naturally anil!
simply showing that the members of
the company were true nrtists iu j
their profession. Manager Beattie is1
to be congratulated upon securing such a splendid attraction. If
Miss Roberts and her company return to Cranbrook they should have
a packed house. It is quite probable tbat Mr. Cort will book another great play through this part ot
the country some time during the
summer, the bill will probably be

Seattle, Wash., April 20.—One oi
the revelations ot the past month in
the development of tho Alaska-
I'ukon-Paciflu Exposition has been
tin- sudden appearance of two buildings, one of them among the largest
ou tin* grounds, near the music
pavilion on the left side of Rainier
\ ista at the foot of the Court of
Honor. The two structures seemed
to arise as if by magic, ami a few
days after they were lirst observed,
tlie entire frame work was in place
and scores of workmen were busy
with exterior ami interior finishing.
The workers on the Exposition
grounds, who had supposed that that
all of the large buildings were already constructed, hastened to Inquire about the new buildings, aud
learned that they are the Canadian
Government building, and the Grand
Trunk railway building.
Canada has erected on the A.Y.P.
grounds a handsome building that
will contain as large an exhibit us
some of the main exhibit palaces,
and there has already arrived for
the display a shipment of several
carloads, containing the exhibit of
Canada at the Franco-British exhibition at Loudon last summer. This
shipment will form the nucleus of
11k- Canadian display, but the Canadian commissioner has gathered from
throughout the Dominion, and especially from British Columbia, a complete exhibit of the agricultural,
mineral, timber and fisheries resources of the country.
Canada will mnkc a strong feature
of tho facilities of her lands for
dairying purposes, and will be a
strong contender in (he live stock
show, which will he hold at thc Exposition in September, and will lie
the largest live stock exhibition ever
gathered in the west. Canadian
br lers of high grade stock have already made numerous entries for this
event, and will make a strong showing against the entries from this side
of the line.
Tin- Canadian building will he completed hv the end of April, leaving a
full month for the installation of
exhibits. The building occupies one
of the choicest sites on the fair
grounds, especially in regard to the
view it commands. From the balcony of thc building a sweeping view
of the Exposition mav be obtained,
while Lake Washington lies at the
foot of a slope to thc eastward, and
thc Cascades loom up beyond.
Mount Rainier is seen to the southeast, and Lake Union to the southwest, with a distant glimpse of the
Olympics beyond Seattle's hills. The
grounds, lie at the foot of Cascade
landscape work on the Exposition
grounds, lie at the foot ol Cascade
Court, and extend past the Canadian
building. Nearby is the music pavilion, where the finest bands in America will plav during the summer.
Thc Grand Trunk building, next the
Canadian structure, is a smaller affair, but very attractive In design,
and will exploit the wonderful region
which the railroad is opening
through tbe Dominion,

Co. (the telephone and electric light
systems being formerly run under one
company, known as Tbe Cranbruok
Electric Light Co., Ltd.) The
gentlemen controlling the Electric
Light company, found, that on account of the neccssitv of having to
enlarge and expand the telephone
system, it would he much more convenient to separate the electric
lights and telephones, and In asking
(or privileges for the telephone system, they arc really only separating
the two companies, and are asking
for privileges in their own name,
which they now have in another
drill's name, so therefore, the people,
il they favor granting these privileges, are not granting more titan
they have at the present tune, but
are simply giving them permission lo
do business through direct permission, instead of doing it through permission granted to another company,
which permission, as before stated,
was turned over to them bv The
Cranhrook Electric Light Co. In
Asking the people to approve ol this
iiylaw, the council have arranged
matters sn, that privileges appertaining to telephones granted to thc
Electric Light Co. will be cancelled,
and a contract between The Electric

is now iu the council's hands, so,
therefore, iu approving ot this bylaw, the ratepayers are only taking a
telephone privilege away from one

a bylaw for street improvement, at
ibe last council meeting the matter
tu taxes was gone into thoroughly,
aud we found that, In order to meet
the expenditures that were absolutely
necessary, that wo would require to
go the limit in taxation, which is
_>: mills. Included m these 2*1
mills au- 5 mills tor school purposes,
and considering the erection of a tie*
school, .*■ mills would not be enough
to cover the expenses of tbat department. After fully considering
Uie question from every point, it was
decided In the best interests ot the
ratepayers, to ask them to pass a
Bylaw (or ten thousand dollars for
tin- improvement of our streets. By
doing this the taxes would be reduced tins year from 2Ji mills to 18J
mills, and for the re-payment ot
these debentures under tbis bylaw,
would require in following year's a
rate obout one mill; consequently,
.ou can understand the benefit obtained by spreading the cost of local
improvements over a period of twenty years, rather than paying for such
a large amount as is now required,
in one year, and 1 believe that it is
to every ratepayer's very best interest to support this bylaw, and hope
that it will pass without a dissent*
ine voice.

this papvr a complete list of the

A wonderful pioneer country is being opened to colonization in British
i olumhia, Canada's maritime province on ihe Pacific ocean, writes
Adam Andrew Mc Andrew in California Magazine.
Despite tho vast area of British
Columbia—it is six limes us large as
lhe combined areas of all tbe New
England stales—its resources are
little known. .Most people think of
it—if they think of it ut all—as a
forbidding land. Vet iu it almost
lull,uuu square miles of territory,
which ranges in a great irregular
quadrangle, 700 miles from north to
south, ami with an average width of
IU0 miles, there are many extremely
neb areas of fertile grain and fruit
land, which, as I will narrate in this
article, already produces fruit and
grain that compete with anv in thc
And the land is cheap; the climate
is mild.
Cheap laud and healthful conditions
have been the loadstone of the pioneer since the great western plains
of America were first settled. 1
know British Columbia like a book. 1
have lived here for fifteen years, and
1 know' that it holds vast promise
far thc pioneer. Of course, the
country has its drawbacks, a great
many of litem, hut these are rapidly
disappearing as our territory is being settled up. And 1 am one ot
those enthusiasts who maintain that
British Columbia holds out better
chances than any new country that
the white man  can live in.
The surprising feature of the province is its diversity. The coal measures of British Columbia are sufficient to supply the world for centuries; it produces the greatest area
of merchantable timber in North
America; the mines have yielded
$275,000,000 and are hardly in the
earlv stages of their development;
the fisheries give up $7,500,000 annually, ami, aside from salmon fishing, their vast importance is only bet-inning lo he realized; the agricultural and fruit lands last year produced over $7,500,000 and only a
fraction 61 the available land is
settled upon, much less cultivated.
There are vast deposits ol iron ore,
hematite, and magnetite iron ol the
lines! quality which still remain undeveloped. The province has millions of acres of pulp wood vet un-
exploitod; petroleum deposits but recently discovered, which are among
thc most extensive in  the world.
Vet much of the territory is unexplored and its potential value an-
known. Huge areas of cheap land
arc available to   the settler. A
prodigal nature has endowed it with
till the essentials for tbe loundatkm
and maintenance of an empire. It is
placed in the healthful temperate
/.one; il has a commanding position
on tho shores of the Pacific; it is encompassed with inspiring grandeur
and beauty. From a scenic viewpoint, British Columbia is a paradise
for tho sportsman, explorer, and
sight-seep. Far buck from tbe rich
and low alluvial valleys which arc
warmed by the Japanese current and
possess much the same climate as
that of Seattle or Portland, lie the
great Selkirks, incrusted on their
summits with snows and on their
black Hanks containing huge forests
of commercial timber. Vast glaciers in thc mountains feed tho
streams of living waters, which,
clear and crystal, rush down toward
the ocean, furnishing for the future
an inexhaustible supply of water lor
irrigation. Within this forested interior, in the high uplands, the game
fairly swarms. Trout and salmon
of huge size are caught in the great
streams of living waters that rush
from tin1 precipitous mountains down
l»ast the vast stretches of commercial
timber; past the fertile mountain valleys with their rich orchards of
deciduous fruits, and at last empty
into the ocean or its tributaries.
Elk, deer, hear, quail, ducks, part-
rldces, grouse and fur-bearing animals innumerable range the vast and
unexplored areas. Enormous herds
of caribou And fattening forage iu
the rich inland meadows.
Here, uninterrupted by tbe ringing
of tbe woodsman's axe, the "rcat silent tragedy of nature proceeds year
■ vear In this primeval wilderness.
The puma, crouching on the crooked
limb, plunges on the voung deer fawn
us it follows its mother to the
drinking pool. The grizzly, huge aud
uncouth, disputes his little domain
with man or beast. Tbe country in
the mountain interior is rich, primeval, brimming with life.
The fisheries of British Columbia
comprise a tremendous industry. Salmon in the spring rush up the
streams in armies of millions. At
limes the bodies of the spawn ol
these huge Ash obscure the rocky
bottoms of the smaller rivers.
The huge forests of great commercial limber hold out a promise almost unbelievable to the lumberman
who has been concerned with America's fast-disappearing timber supply.
Another source of wealth is comprised in the rivers and mountain lakes,
containing possibilities for an almost
inexhaustible supply of electrical
power, lo be developed by tbe fall
of the water. And they have never
been harnessed.
Perhaps the most important feature, however, from lite viewpoint ot
the reader, who may wish to settle
In this rich and little-known frontier, Is the climate of the country,
its transportation facilities, its "modern conveniences," and the market.
As to lhe lirst, H may lie said that
varied elinmlie conditions prevail;1 as
lo thr second, that In some regions
the transportation   facilities are  ex
its eastern neighbor, the Rookies.
Thus a series of alternate moist aud
dry belts is formed. I
But as a whole the climate ol Brit-1

agcitcies   are    established   at   Kam-

Next to her great industry of min-

nol the most important, of British

The best average trees are 150 feet
clear of limbs and five In six feet in
diameter. The fir is the staple of
commerce, prized for its durability
and strength. The great bodies of
tins limber are found on Vancouver
Island, on the coast of the Mainland
and in the Selkirk and Gold Mountains. Next to the Douglas fir in
importance arc the cvnress and red
cedar, both of which are of great
value and much in demand. Red
cedar shingles are the standard, and
are finding an increasing market in
Eastern Canada. The white spruce
is also much sought after by certain
builders for use in tho better class

in the nrovince and possesses qualities whieh should make it more valued than it is. The western species

of commercial value which are manufactured into lumber, including white
nine tamarac, balsam, yew, maple
and cottonwood.
railroad systems disclosed the fact
that the agricultural and grazing
lauds of British Columbia arc by far
the most valuable of the country's
With all this talk about the agricultural industries of this new frontier laud, the reader will wish me to
come down to hard facts; Ine proof
of the pudding is the eating. Within
the last. Ave years the shipments of
fruit from British Columbia have increased over sixty per cent, the shipments last year (1UU8) being over
5,uuu tans. The increase in frdit
average have been amazing. In 1907,
over 1,0110,000 fruit trees were planted In the great, broad river valleys
ol British Columbia. In 1908, still
mote trees were planted, and today
there are more than luO.OOO acres in
fruit trees, yielding an annual revenue of over X2,000,000.
There is nothing like a concrete
case to show what people are doing.
Mr. T, W. Stirling, of the Bankbead
Ranch, Kelowna, British Columbia,
has prepared the following statement about his ranch, which consists
of lti acres of land: In the last year
his ranch produced 170 tons of fruit;
the year before produced 130 tons of
fruit; and the year before that it
produced 140 vtons. His Jonathan
Jies, planted 4ve ■ ,ro  pro
duced 100 pounds of fruit lo a tree.
This fruit was worth Si.50 for each
10 pound box. At the age of four
years these trees produced (iO pounds
per tree, and at (i years old they will
produce 200 pounds of fruit to a
But this is not the least ol Mr.
Stirling's doings. From (!A acres be
actually made over $5,000; and the
record of the production is as follows: From 1 1-3 acres of Bartlett
pears were produced 10 tons ol fruit,
or about 800 boxes; selling price,
$1.35 per box, f.o.b. packing house,
$1,100. Two and one-third acres
Italian prunes produced 32 tons, or
1,2011 crates; selling price, 70 cents a
crate, $8-10. And from this it is
easy to see where the $5,000 comes
iu from Die small plot of land.
The actual experience of many
fruit-growers is highly satisfactory
to them, and a temptation to every
man who desires to make money
pleasantly to set up in the business.
In Okanagan there are instances ot
$500 to $000 gross profit per acre.
At Kelowna, 0 tons of roots, netting
the owner $ 1 on pPr acre. This land
was formerly a cedar swamp. At
I.ytton, tokav grapes, averaging 4
pounds to tbe bunch, were grown in
the open. On tbe Coldstream ranch,
near Vernon, 20 acres produced
$10,000 worth of Northern Spy apples. At Peachland, one acre and a
half gave a return of $700 in peaches.
Tomatoes tn tbe value of $1,500 per
acre were grown on Okanagan Lake.
A cherry tree at Penticton produced
800 nounds of fruit; another, at
Aeassiz, 1,000 pounds.
In the suburbs ol Victoria, the following results are authenticated:
Four acres of strawberries produced
28,120 pounds of fruit, which sold lor
$2,61)8 net, or $050 per acre; halt an
acre produced 2,820 pounds, giving a
net return of $301; another grower
raised 12,55(; pounds ol berries on one
and one-half acres, which sold tor
SI.228.00 net, or over $800 per
t-'riiit raising is not tho only agricultural industry in British Columbia; dairying and live stock arc import ant industries. Swine, sheep
and eat tie are raised in great numbers, and poultry production is a
fascinalint' minor pursuit of thc farmer mid settler.
Vegetables afford a tremendous
product. The bottom lands ol the
Columbia river are very proliAc. Potatoes yield 300 to -100 bushels to the
acre, and other roots give equally
heavy returns. Gnrden vegetables
grow to perfection, and even tbe
most delicate varieties are seldom injured hy frost or drought. Although
the yield of vegetables, grain and
root ernps is increasing aonually, it
is far from satisfying to the local
demands. Mining, lumber, und railway enterprises employ large numbers of men, whose wants can onlv be
supplied hy importing the articles
from abroad. Over 2,000 tons ot
vegetable products arc imported
every year.
It is impossible to enumerate all
the rich lands which are open to the
settler. According to the report
made by C. A, R. t-ambly, government agent at Fairview, there arc
1,800,000 acres of government land in
Similknmccti alone. In the Similka-
meen Valley, roots nnd vegetables
reach perfection on the rich black
lands. Carrots, onions and parsnips
do well on  the snndy  benches.    Ap-
Tlie following from the Spokane
Spokesman-Review applies, the Herald thinks, to Eastern British Columbia, or for that matter to thc
province as a whole, lust as much as
it does to tbe North Western States.
It is a matter to be well thought
out and to he taken up by those who
wish to see a new industry added to
the many already operating iu the
With thc prodigious and evcr-in-
crcasing demand for white paper, the
problem of the adeqdate supply of
wood pulp becomes more serious
every year. Nearly seven-tenths ot
thc wood used for paper is spruce,
and one-third of thc spruce is now
imported from Canada,
The American paper manufacturer*
will have to look more and more to
the Canadian forests for their materials, and even this source ot supply
threatens to fall before long. It has
been prophesied that the time is
coming when newspapers will cost
from 10 to 25 cents.
The paper experts have searched
high anil low for a substitute that
will serve as well as spruce. Experiments have been carried on largely
with materials that are not so easily exhausted as timber and are not
of much value for other purposes.
Cotton stalks, chaparral and even
the Kansas sunflower have been
tried. It is likely that processes
will he discovered lor handling these
materials economically, but the results are not yet satisfactory.
The most recent proposal comes
from the forestry bureau, which has
taken Interest in the wood pulp
plemblcm and has been testing some
ot the inferior varieties ot timber.
The bureau says that the despised
scrub pine mav be utilized with very
little change in the method ol treat*
ineiil by the pulp mills.
This discovery may bring industrial
benefits to Washington. Idaho nnd
Oregon through tbe establishment ol
pulp and paper mills, for these States
are plentifully supplied with scrub

The Canadian Alpine club have been
the means of advertising the province
to a very large extent tu the uulside
world. They have never received a
dollar from the provincial treasury
although the government of Alberta
have "come through" with some
thousands uf dollars. Hritish Columbia should not be behind, her sister province.
Mr. Herbert W. Gleason, thc celebrated mountain climber, whose
home is in Boston, Mass., and who,
by the way, will tbis summer be the
guest of Karl Grey at tho head waters
of the Columbia river, declares that
the Rockies are tho chief glory uf
Canada, lu an Interview at Winnipeg the other day, he said:
"Tourists leave in Switzerland
two hundred million dollars evory
year, and in thc Canadian Rockies you have fifty Switzcrlands
rolled into one. It is true that
your Switzerland is so remote
aud is not accessible to travelers
as thc Switzerland of Europe is.
These mountains have, however,
been made more accessible than
they were and they will yearly
attract larger numbers of sightseers from all parts of thc world.
1 am an American, hut I am free
to say that there is nothing in
the United Stales which equals
in magnificence what is to be
found In your great west. Your
Rockies arc thc glory of the
Dominion. Just before coming
west I lectured in Ridoau hall at
the Invitation of I.ady drey. 1
stated at the lecture that it srem--
i*d to he like bringing coal to
Newcastle, that I, an American,
should come to the capital nt
lhe Dominion, and in Ridoau hall
should lecture on the chief glory
of this country. Il appeared to
me that my audience, in which
there were so manv people who
knew the west, so very well.
would find lhe lecture a bore, hut
1 was    surprised   to liud so very
deep an interest taken."

Primrose Day.
(Ireat Britain is confronted with a
deficit of about Ji75,OIHi,tH)U. This is
due to two things. The old age
pension bill and lhe effort to build
more battleships than auy two nations, the United Stales excepted.
Deficits involve additional taxation,
and the income tax is now nearly as
nigh as it can go, and the debt is so
high that it is hardly wise to increase il. lu the matter of naval
construction and old age pensions
these are to go on year after year,
ihey are not proper expenses to meet
by burrowing. But to meet them
by luxation is going to be very hard
ou the average Englishman.
Moyie is growing. Twenty-two
children were born in that town during tbe last six months.

Tomorrow is St. George's Pay—
the Englishman's day. St. Patrick
of Ireland and St. Andrew ol Scotland have their days, but thc modest

the Englishman as St. Patrick's
Dav or St. Andrew's to the Irishman
and the Scot.
It looks as if the head of the Sultan of Turkey was in jeopardy. His

The Herald has maintained the
past two years that East Kootenay
wtis bound to he a great fruit country. Outside people are beginning to
realize this fact and demands for
lands around Cranbrook are becoming
mure numerous each day. The attitude of the Herald will be vindicated inside of twelve months.

V man who owns a fuot uf property
mi Cranbrook or has a position that
depends upon the prosperity of the
town, and every wage-earner must
depend upon a condition like that,
should lie a member of tbe Board
of Trade. Why is it that men who
have all they own in Cranbrook
should leavo it to other people to
advance their own interests? Honestly, now, do you not think that
you should at least contribute a
paltry two dollars for thc support of
the Board of Trade, when business
men, whose time is worth from $5 to
$10 a day, are spending a good portion of that time and in consequence a goodly portion of their
monev for the betterment of conditions in Cranbrook and Eafrt Kootenay. C. H. Allison is the secretary and treasurer of the Cranhrook
Board of Trade and would he pleased
lo receive thc names of cverv property holder and every wage-earner in
Cranhrook as members of tho Board.

HILL   &   CO.
Are busy reducing their stock and their prices are having
an effect upon the people.
When a Company has to make great changes, it Is
better to reduce prices and sell goods than to move goods.
That is what Hill & Co. are doing this month.
The store room on Armstrong Avenue, formerly
occupied by the furniture department, will be devoted to
Ladies' Ooods entirely; the old store room will be devoted
to Oent's Furnishings and Clothing. But the stock is too
large to move around and that is why the prices are
beint CUT to the bone.
This is the great opportunity for the people of this
district to get goods lower than ever before. Mr. Hill
leaves for the coast in two weeks and he wants to see the
stock greatly reduced before that time.
until 3 a.m., all expressing themselves as having had a very enjoyable
evening. A sum in the neighborhood
af one hundred dollars was realized
for the school and those in charge of
lhe arrangements have every reason
to feel pleased with the results of
their efforts. Much credit is due
Mrs. Hunter and the other ladles
who gave their time so unsparm i.
It is to be hoped that the negotiations now entered into with the government will result in better school
facilities for this growing town.
Last Friday evening in thc Auditorium Cranbrook received an additional mark nf praise:
"Kor the last ten years I have
never slept better than I have since
I have been in Cranbrook. My only
regret is that my sleeping hours   aro
so short. The air is certainly of the
best." *
In commenting upon some photos
that were sent to New York, answer
was received that: "Cranbrook must
indeed be beautiful."
Words of this kind falling from the
lips of Evangelist Dr. Toy, who, by
the way, knows thc American continent as well as most men, should give
general encouragement to all who
have our city at heart.
Another instance of our good climate: We read of the eastern cities
having dirty weather, and even last
week we made reference to Mr.
Brault's statement that Pincher
(■reek was very backward this spring
and many storms prevailed. During
this time Cranbrook was and is enjoying summer weather. Building
has begun on a large scale and irrcal
times are expected this vear. people
are beginning to set their gardens in
order nnd houses arc being painted.
This all helps to make thc city look
brighter and 'better. Thc council has
a proposition before them to lay
down $10,0110 for street improvements.
Readers! Cranbrook is going ahead!
It's bound to, for nothing can hinder
it. Then let us be up and doing and
help it along—do your best. We
have made a good beginning. Keep
it up and keep the ball a rolling. The
seed has been sown. We are now
beginning to reap thc harvest.
Greater prospects than the summer
before us we have never had. ■

• What is the good ot spying holes in

ihem'.' Talk of my debts if you
mean to pay them; it not, keep your
let! rag behind your ivory ridge. A
friend's faults should not he advertised, and even a. stranger's should
not lie published. He who makes a
fool tif another is a fool himself.
Don't get into the habit of laughing
at other people, for the old saying is
"Hanging's stretching, and Blocking's catching," Jesting is too apt
to turn Into jeering, and what was
meant to tickle makes a wound. It
is a pity when my mirth is another
man's misery. Before a man
cracks a joke lie should consider how
he would like it himself, for many
who give rough blows have very thin
skins. Give only what you would
be willing to take; some men throw
salt on others, but they smart if a
pinch of it falls on their own raw
places. When thev get a Roland for
their Oliver, or a lit for tat, they
don't like ti, yot nothing is more
just.     Biters deserve to lie bitten.

on every other morning when It is
delicious, say so. Try this way,

know our own families! We are up
ami away in the morning before they

Baker Street, CRANBROOK, B.C.
ON April 1st we decided to take over Hill & Co.'s stock of
Furniture, Carpets and Rugs. After invoicing the stock
we found it much larger than we anticipated. To reduce the stock
to a satisfactory point we decided to reduce prices, and judging by
the amount of business we have done in this department, we believe
OUR prices have been found very satisfactory.
Mr. Geo. Chapman has charge of this new department, which
is located on the second floor formerly occupied by the tailoring
department and stock rooms. He will be glad to meet all of bis old
friends. By courteous attention and thoroughly dependable goods
at lowest prices, we hope to make this department as popular in
East Kootenay as are the other departments in our big store.
If you require anything for your home, such as
Carpets, Rugs,  Mats, Iron or Brass Beds,   Sideboards,
Buffets, Lounges, Davenports, China or Music Cabinets,
Morris Chairs, Rockers, Easy Chairs, Dining Chairs,
Dining Tables, Writing Desks, Rattan Goods,
Dressers, Stands, Wardrobes, Carpets,
Rugs and Mats
it will pay you well to inspect our stock before buying.
Our stock of Leather Chairs and Lounges is very large and
well assorted and the prices make you feel like buying.
We have a quantity of Carpet Remnants and Fringe, from
which we can make Mats at very low prices.
