PABST BEER is recommended by the
highest Medical Authorities on account of
the Tonic and strengthening properties
which it possesses to a high degree.
PABST BEER has reached the highest standard for PURITY AND EXCELLENCE that Beer can possibly
attain. PABST BEER is in a class by itself, having distanced all the other famous Beers of the wcrld
in open competition at the INTERNATIONAL PURE FOOD EXPOSITION, held at ANTWERP,
BELGIUM, in the summer of 1907.

in this matter, why has he not publicly staled on the platform that he
misrepresented this profmsMlon in his
speech at Cranbrook uml that he regretted the matter verv much indeed. Has lie done this? Not in
one single instance lias he shown a
desire lo make amends for the had
break at Cranbrook.
Hut this Is not alt. Mr. Qondevo
stood on the platform at Cranbrook
ami virtually with tears coursing
down his checks nirl bemoaned the
fact that the Laurler government
thought no little of Hie Anglo-Saxon
race as to   encourage tbe settlement
nf iL colour of Japanese in Alberta
Mi. Qoodeve said to that hi" audience
thai he had in the Auditorium in
Cranbrook, "Do you want Japanese
to he tilling the soil of the west?"
Is this the kind of immigration that
the west is looking for? Do vou
want the little brown man to sett.e
upon your lands instead of tlie
white man?" And then following

If the public get the idea that running a newspaper is a cheap and easy
thing to do, they should be educated
t.i the contrary. The public arc reasonable iu the Ions ri,n nnd if it is
pointed oul to them that the newspaper producing Industrj is an expensive olio io maintain, thev will coins
around to rIvo better support to tbe
Industry. The Thorold Post takes
up this theme in a recent number
an.) comments upon it as follows:
"There are not a few subscribers
to the Post who seem to be laboring under the false impression that
all a newspapet needs for existence
is a shove or a kick occasionally, or
a pull "i wind or something as
ephemeral. Thev cannot run their
factories, choir farms or their
homes that way, of course. It takes
money and ti steady stream of it.
As to running a newspaper, wo would
just whisper in Ihe ears of these
deluded ones that it is all a mistake—not as thev think, it is all a
myth. We do not get paper by the
ton for nothing. Our type, true, is
dug out of the ground, in the form
iA lead, /ine and other metals; but
the men that dig it, and refine it,
and manufacture it into type, have
i.i he paid in a commodity coiled
MOticy, and it. takes a lot'of money
lo huya little type—lead and ziuc are
precious metals in Ibis form. Then
Ihtt'l uress that seems to spin around
so easily—ii contains several tons of
solid iron, cast and turned and fitted
Into finely finished parts, and when
il went out' of the factory a lot ol
money—real money—went into the
factory. And those type-setters and
press-workers—they expect a pay 'lay
occasionally—anoui once a Week—for
Ihey too, have homes to be kept up,
mil expenses to meet. And so It
icocs all around. Funny, and some
may not believe it at all—they really
do not, if we can jinlge hv ' their
manner of payment, or rather their
failure to do anv such foolish thin*.
If those re'erred to now will just ac-
i-ept the statement Hiat a newspaper
factory is just as expensive a concern to run as a boot arid shoe factory, and will feel it as necessary to
pay for their newspapers as they
end it necessary to pay for their
footwear, thev will square themselves
with the eternal truths of ihe question, and with their consciences, and
will rise high in the confidence and
esteem of the nation-makers behind
the quill."
(Hoiindary Creek Times.)
The over-thought nil   Cranbrook
Herald requests that every speaker
through the campaign he given a (air
(J^hn Houston in the Prince Rupert
Kootenay district has nine members
in the legislature. Vancouver and
Victoria combined have nine members. The voting strength in the
legislature of Kootenay's nine should
be cipial to the voting strength of the
nine from Vancouver and Victoria.
Hut it is not so, for of the nine
members from Vancouver and Victoria one is premier, a second is attorney-general, a third is minister ol
finance, and a fourth is president ol
the council. None of the members
from Kootenay are higher up than
party whips, whose duty it is to
whip all the members into doin;
what the nine members from Vancouver and Victoria want them to do.
Why is it that the nine members
from Kootenay are mere hewers ol
wood and drawers of water for the
nine members from Vancouver and
Victoria? Is it because the 30,000
people of Kootenay want them to be
mere political pawns? Or are they
mere political pawns because they
have not got brains enough to be
anything else? The business interests
of Kootenay are not controlled lo
any great extent by the business interests ot either Vancouver or Victoria. W'hv then should the political
interests of Kootenay be absolutely
controlled bv Vancouver and Victoria? Why shoi.l.l W. It. Ross, o|
Fernie, and J. II Schofietd, of Trail,
and William Hunter, of Silver I on, and
Thomas Taylor, it llevelstoke, und
Neil Mackoy, of Kudo, and Hanv
Parsons, of tiolden. alt of whom are
Conservatives, be mere political followers of the nine Conservative members from Vancouver and Victoria.'
Itoss imagines he is as brainy as the
attorney-general: SchoueM is as much
of an aristocrat as is the premirr
and can do the sruile-liairilshakiiiu act
to perfection; Hunter must lie as n '
a financier as is the minister of
finance or h.* could not have maintained himself as a merchant in Kootenay for 20 years, Mack ay ant Taylor
and Parsons are the equal of the
president, of the council in speechless
solemnity. It is all the fault of
the people ol Kooten.iv for neglecting
their political duties, part, of which
is to insist that every voter shall
have a rlrht to lie heard in selecting
the candidates to he voted for on
election dav. Candidates are not
selected bv the men who do the
voting, but bv men who have special interests to serve; hence Kootenav
is nraeticallv without representation
in the legislature of British Columbia,
althoutrh she has nine of the
42 members.
During the past year the citv ha*
been making improvements of a material nature under the supervision oi
Alderman Ryan, chairman of the puli-
lie works committee. Mr. Ryan has
expended in the neighborhood ol
$'i*uio in this work and every dollar
of it has iieen Judiciously expended.
The ditch Uiut was constructed for
ihe purpose of draining the swamp
in the center of the town has
proven n great success. In addition
lo this, sidewalks have been built
streets have been graded and improv
ed by the placing of sawdust where
the soil was sandy, crossings of cinder
put in, bridges built and other work
done that will prove to be a great
heneflt to the town. Tire work of
the council during the past, year has
been of such a nature that every ratepayer Is pleased with the results.
Tlicre have been no complaints on
the part of the people, ami there
has been no fighting at the sittings
of the city council. On the contrary, the board, of aldermen tlurint
the past year have demonstrated the
fact that they had only one object
In view, and that was to administer
the affairs ol the city in a manner
that would secure from the neople
iheir heartiest approval. Mayor
Kink and Aldermen Ryan, Hunt.
Jackson, Johnson, Baker and Henderson have been cautious in their
deliberations and are deserving of
the thanks of tile people of Cranbrook for what they have accomplished. The Derail takes pleasure in
commending these gentlemen for the
work that thev have done, and feels
safe in making the assertion that so
long as Cranbrook has a council
made up of gentlemen like the present one, tho best interests nf the
city will be well guarded.
Hugh Oilmore, ei-M.P.P. and the
well known representative of the
Waterous Engine works, was in
Cranbrook on Tuesday. Mr. Oilmore
has just returned from a five months
sojourn iu Europe. He reports having had a delightful time visiting not
onlv the British Isles, but also
France and Italy. While in Europe
Mr. Oilmore spent some time in
London. Edinburgh .nl Dublin. at
which latter city he attended the
horse show, which, be says, was the
ilea test exhibition of horseflesh he
ever saw. One thing that struck
Mr. Oilmore. as it strikes every visitor to London, was the marvelous or-
■aiii/ation of tbe metropolitan police and the wonderful way la which
they handle the traffic. "Some
'people." said Mr. Oilmore, "sav that
Ibe English are slow, but if
they were to spend a quarter of an
hour at Picadillv circus or outside
the bank, Id the middle of the day.
line would come to a verv different
conclusion. There is no wonder that
Englishmen are pnmid of their country." Mr. Oilmore spent several
■lavs in Borne and in Naples. At the
latter place, however, he wns disap-
•iled as Vesuvius was not ou shift
md Instead of belching forth lava
was us quiet as Baker mountain.

Rosslond, B.C., October fi, 1908.
Editor "Daily  News,"  Nelson, B.C.
Dear Sir: If any evidence were desired to make assurance doubly sure
of the vietory of Mr. Smith Curtis
the Liberal candidate iu the forthcoming Dominion "lection in Koote
nay, it would be found iu your issue
.>f this morning, in the article pur-
poiiing to give the facts, in con-
ncctlop with Mr. a. s. Ooodeve's
meeting at llosmer last Saturday
night. For not onlv is it disclosed
that the Tories are not satisfied
with having the only daily paper in
the riding wherein to set forth the
case for their candidate, but, evidently convinced of tbe weakness of that
ease, they resort to deliberate distortion of (acts and wilful falsehood,
Your article states that Mr. Curtis
and his manager, F. J. Deane, finding
that the Conservatives had engaged
the only hall in the place made " a
pretence of asking for a joint meeting.
The (nets are that some ten days before Saturday last arrangements had
Ihtii made for a meetinir in Hosmer,
t.i lie addressed by Mr. Smith Curtis, A day ot two before the date
fixed the local Liberal committee
learned that Mr. A. S. Uoodcve was
to he in town the following dav and
decided to try to arrange for n Join;
meeting. The local Tory committee
expressed willingness to aeceed to
this plan. I was communicated
with and replied: "Entirely approve
nf joint meeting proposal." In response to niy wire I received reply
that Mr. Ooodeve would not agree to
a joint meeting but would aHow Mr
Curtis forty minutes time at his
meeting. To this 1 replied: "Go>«l-
eve's proposal absurd. Complete arrangements f«<r Curtis meeting and
offer Ooodeve full hour." L'p to B
o'clock on Saturday eventse no further word was received from Ooodeve
or bis committee. Meantime our
meeting had been organized and a
big gathering of voters had assembled
to hear Mr. Curtis. At tbis juncture, evidently realizing that their
meeting must prove a "frost,"' overtures came from the Tory camp that
we should abandon our meetine upon
condition of Mr. Curtis heine allowed
to speak for one hour at Mr. Good-
eve's meeting. My response to this
uroposition was that, hating d^e
inv utmost to bring about a joint
meet in0". I did not propose to aban-
lon the meeting I had arranged f^r
Mr. Curtis but that if Mr. Ooodeve
hose to abandon his he would be
accorded the privilege of a full hour's
replv to Mr. Curtis as previously offered. The insinuation that Mr.
Curtis is unwilling to rmet Mr.
Ooodeve on the public platform is
wholly unjustifiable and entirely at
variance with tbe facts. It is within the personal knowledge of Captain
[J. C. McMorris. Mr. Goode*e*s cam-
laign secretary, and Mr. W. A. Mac-
donald, K.C., that I have spared no
nnlns to arrange for Joint meetings.
00 Tuesd-iy or Wednesday, September
'12nd or 23rd. 1 waited upon Captain
McMorris with a proposal tor a series
d joint meetings commencing: at Creslon and to include all points    along
he Crow line, terminating at Michel.
Captain McMorris informed me that
he had no authority to act for Mr.
Ooodeve in this matter. I then asked him to communicate with Mr.
Ooodeve with a view to perfecting
details for a series of joint meetia^s
On the Thursday night following I
again looked up Captain McMorris
.tud    re-submitted   this proposal tor
oint meetings. He agsdn informed
me that he had no power to wt and
was n.'t then definitely advised ol
Mr. Ooodeve's further movements
Before leaving him 1 secured his
promise to   communicate to me    at
'resiou whatever decision Mr. Good-
eve might come to in tne matter.
Ibe next day, Friday, I proceeded to
Crest on and found that the' local
Tory committee wanted a joint ineet-
ng. 1 thereupon tete^ranned Mr.
A. M. Johnson to wait upon Mr. W.
A. MacDonald, K.C., who appeared
from instructions received at C: est on
tie th>; man in authority m tbe
Qoodeve camp, and arrange wilh
him terms of a joint.meeting- In
reply Mr, Johnson wired me that Mr.
MacDonald rcpirdlateo' any authority
to n''t and staled he did not approve
of joint meetings. Failing to arrange i"i a joint meeting at Creston
1 proceeded to Moyie, where I again
waited upon the local Tory couiiniv
t.tv in that place. Again 1 was va-
formed thai u„ authority rested with
the local committee to maaVe such an
rrangemeiit, although the members
impressed a desire to hold such a
meeting. My next move in this direction was to wait upon Mr. Good-
eve personally at Creston when 1
.sKcl him io agree to a Joint meeting
at Moyie. that being tbe desire of all
parties in Moyie. Mr. Qoodeve in-
formed me that he was In the hands
f his heal committee and could do
otbing without consulting them. In
face of the local committee's reply
that they had no authority to act
tor Mr. Qoodeve I wondered what I
was up against, but, still determined
to brto" iilwut a joint meeting, il at
all possible, I telegraphed Mr. Good-
eve's statement to our Moyio campaign secretary, instructing him to
Mr. Oooieve's cemmittee act
make the necessary arrangements.
Coon our arrival at Moyie on Tuesday, September 29th, I found Mr.
Ooodeve's committee flatly opooctd
to a joint meeting and only willing,
favor, to allow Mr. Curtis to
speak at Mr. Ooodeve's meeting tor
thirty minutes, he being put on after
Mr. I». R. Macdonald Rnd before Mr.
Ooodeve. The foregoing constitute a
nlaln, unvarnished statement ot the
acts in connection with the failure
to arrane for a scries of joint meet
ings along the line oi the Crows
Nest railway, for comfirmation of
which I take pleasure in referring you
to Mr. A. s. Qoodeve, Captain D. C.
McMorris and Mr. W. a. Maodonald,
As further bearwe upon this suh-
lect I miirot refer to our abortive
efforts to arrange for Mr. Qoodeve to
meet Mi Curtis on the iiuhllu plat-
furm both in Nelson and Rossland.

Toronto Qlobc.)
The Globe tias received from \
gentleman «-t the province 0i ihiebec
the following statement, which is vi
value as showing the political point
of vien of the average citiion there:
Wishing to present to your readers
unintelligent elector of the province
a French-Canadian point <>i new why
of vtcti.no should support the candidates upholding the policy of Sir
Wilfrid Lnurier, I ask the favor of
bslhg youi far-reaching paper, in the
bvbt Lnglish 1 can, uxivetini; indul-
gence from your readers'
The province of Ontario, (he L'ng-
lish-speaking elector, should not be
under the impression that ihe province of Quebec, support Sir .Vilfrid
Laurler because be is a French-
Canadian.     This is not the case.
The province ol Quebec supported
Sir Jonn Mavdonald for twenty
'Cars, and was verv enthusiastic in
lis support. knd Sir .lohn MacdonaM
was certainly neither a French-Cana-
diiu nor a Catholic. The reason why
■lean Uaptiste was fond of Sir John
[s the very reason why he is fond
of iiir Wilfrid: because Sir Juhn was
a* creat man, and Sir Wilfrid is a
^reat man- Sir John had a oon-
.tructive policy, and .Sir Wilfrid has
a constrictive policy. Sir John was
trving to give fair play to all, and
Sir Wilfrid a giving fair play to   all.
Tbe years oi Sir John Mac-Joaald
are gor.e. these are the days of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier. As the French-
speaking elector was generous towards Sir Wilfrid because he has
raised himself, by his genius, his
works and his character, from
humblest social condition to
highest in the artft of the nation,
has     preached with eloquence
ffill to all
■sample pcar-e     aui
nd between all-
The French-Canadian has a l»orn
pirit of criticism, dislikes mediocrity, but is fond of great men, ol
impressive characters. Strange as
it i\ in the present election Sir
Wilfrid's origin is opposed to him by
his adversaries in the very province
of Quebec. And l .mav sav with
truthfulness that, politically speak-
in - it were better for Sir Willrid
bad he been born an Englishman, because the province of Quebec would
follow him just the same as it fallowed Sir John Macdonald, and be
would not ha^e to face constantly
that eternal suspicion from the Catholic wine on one side an'l the Protestant wing on the other. Sii John
Macd.mald was free of that obstacle.
H is the reason why, I dare say,
that Sir Wilfrid's task has been
greater and his achievements more
deserving. In order to come out
first amongst 'he lealders of his province he had to master his own [angu-

Ihe "Arctic" cost $1.03 a man a day.
He overlooks the fact that Geo. K.

ihe fact thai tbe vessel fitted out

Mr. Horden refers to Mr. Aidamson

Mr. Horden, when sueakimr in London, slated that Mr. Kmmerson,
when minister of railways and canals.
purchased land at, Moncttm for the
purposes of the Intercolonial railway,
and enriched himself. For ten minutes Mr. Horden held the attention ol
several thousand lieople while he en-
1 urged upon what he called the
"Monctoii land deal scandal." This
was erne of the scandals mentioned in
the Tory campaign literature and
upon which the Conservative party
expects to tide to power. What arc
the facts?
The price paid for the land was
Sid,500 and it was bought from a
i-eal estate dealer whn had been em-
nlovod to secure a numlier of small
,ia reels of laud from different owners
making together a certain triangular
strip. Before pa vine; out anv money
the government instructed a valuator,
one Mr. Sumner, to examine tho
proftertv and repnrt upon it. Mr.
Sumner placed a value of $10,500 on
the land, a figure regarded as very
mi sonnble.
Who is Mr. Sumner? He is h prominent Conservative, and Mr. Km-
merson's political opponent in Westmoreland in the coming election. If
the price pall were too high, then the
man to blame is Mr. Sumner, Conservative candidate in Westmorland,
who should be rejected hy the electors. Mr. Borden must settle this
affair with Mr. Sumner, who will
certainly maintain that tho price
nn-td was fair and just.
It has been said that the Liberal
government pays too much attention
to the immigrant, and assists him
to the neglect of residents nf tbe

Fort Steele, B.C., Oct 7, 190S,
To the I'M it or Cranbrook Herald:
Sir: As a nuiubei of people are svr
iuiisly contemplating the planting of
considerable blocks of apple trees
tbe neat future in this district ami
sonic at least feel it makes tor move
economical harvesting and easier selling tu plant a single kind iu each
block, a few wurds on such a plan
might not be out of place.
other things being equal planting
blocks of single varieties does make
easier selling, harvesting, etc., hut
it is an established fact, that very
few, if any, varieties of apples set as
much fruit, or mature as perfect
fruit, when planted alone. Although
it is only iu recent years that much
tudy lias been given this (for the
reason that tho older orchards were
largely mixed) it has been found
some varieties are almost self-sterile
in blossom, many partially so, and
a few seem to he almost complete
self-pollcni2er.s. To those who have
had Utile to do with fruit growing,
I might explain by giving the strawberry as an example, some varieties
which, called pistillate by horticulturists, boar only female blossoms, i.e., there are onl'* pistils and
no stamens on tbe blossoms, others
have both pistils and stamens on
same blossom, and to obtain fruit
from the pistillate kinds there must
he some slaminate variety which
blossoms at tbe same time planted
alongside so that the pistillate blossom may become fertilized hy the
agency of bees, insects, etc carrying
the pollen from the other variety and
placing it iu (ouch with the pistil of
the Infertile flower. This is iu a
lesser sense the cose with apples
also, although less is known In tbis
fruit, but in recent experiments iu
Ihe States it has been found to
lie highly advisable to plant at least
two varieties; and in a planting, for
convenience in working, two rows uf
each seems to work out well antt lie
as far apart as it is safe lo place
them for best results. The varieties
should fie such as blossom at the
same time, as, unless they are, each
stands alone as far as cross pot-
leni/ing is concerned.
In the season of 1907, Mr. K. M.
Buiilop, of Illinois, made notes of
effects of mixed planting as contrast-
itl with solid blocks in some fifteen
lame orchards of which he is manager and among many examples quotes
the case of one forty acre block
planted to Ben Davis and Jonathan,
one row Jonathan to nine rows of
Hen Davis. The Jonathan trees
were full of fruit, the first rows of
Hen Davis cm either side were also
loaded tbe second und third much
less so, and the fourth rows had no
fruit throughout the block, but where
those varieties cornered on another
block of Aiken apples was the heaviest fruitage of the whole lot. - A
second orchard of forty acres was
planted solidly of Ben Davis, except a
dozen trees of Aiken in one corner
and these and the Hen Davis immediately surrounding them were all
that bore   in the whole block.
From some work done by 1h« Horticultural Division Central Experimental Farm tit Ottawa a list has
been made up giving the season of
blossoming of several varieties as follows: I quote onlv such as scorn likely to be grown in this district: Karly
flowering group: Duchess, Farnense.
Tel ot sky, 0 ra veiisteln, Longlield,
Scott's Winter. Medium flowering
group: Baldwin, Hen Davis, Spitven-
burr, American Russet, Nonsuch,
Jonathan King, Mcintosh, McMahon,
Muiiuda, St. Lawrence, Salome,
Stark, Wealthy, Wolf Itiver, Ontario,
ItthKton. Late group: Grimes' Oolden. Lauver, Spy, Talman.

The great drawhadi to domestic
felicity often lies in the fan that we
jrr>t too familiar with One another.
There -should be a certain reserve in
the most intimate relationship.
Members of the same family have no
rii^it to burst into one iiuoMiei's
rouru1; without knocking. Wives hnVo
no more right to search their husbands' pockets than they have to do
the same little service for a distant
acquaintance. You have no more
riuht to rob the baby's bank, than to
force the vault of   the firsi National.
Probably nlnetcen-twenUeths of the
haupineu- you will over have, you
will get at home. The independeiicti
that comes to a man when his work
is over and he [eels that ho has rim
out of the storm iuto tbe quiet harbor ot home, where ho can rest iu
peace with his family, is something
real. It does not make much difference whether you own your house
have one little room in that
house, vou can make that little room
a home to you. You can people it
with such moods, you can turn to it
with such sweet fancies, that it will
be fairly luminous with their presence, and will be to you the very perfection of a home. Against this homo
none of you should ever transgress.
Make your homes pleasant to your
children and -there will be no armies
of unemployed marching through the
country. In America every sober,
industrious, honest young man can
find employment. He mav have to
accept of an humble calling, but will
rapidly climb the ladder. "As the
twig is bent the tree is inclined" mid
It is the homes without pleasures ot
happiness that sends the ehi.dren iip-
t-hc streets in search of a more
congenial atmosphere than thev find
beneath the parental roof. There
are none of us so poor but we can
train a tew roses on the humble wall,
and their scent and beauty will long
be remembered, and manv a boy,
instead of going to loaf iiih>ii the
public highway will linger at home
among the flowers. Moral degradation always begins at home. Honesty
is never gained or lost suddenly, or
by accident, but idleness feeds upon
it and will, iu time, use up the last
vestage. The happv home, lie it a
cottage or a mansion, furnishes' no
recruits for an army of unemployed,

Do you like the neighbor who is

Of course not!     Nobody does.
Of all the words cherished in the
recollection of man—of all the .names
beld sacred in his memory, that ot
mother falls upon his heart with the
most sublime influence. How sweet
the recollection In after years of a
mother's tender training, and who is
there that finds no relief in recurring
to the scenes of his infancy and
vou'A gilded with tltc recollections of
a trotter's tenderness. And how
many have nobly owned, that to the
salutary influence, then exerted, the)
must ascribe their future success,
their avoidance of evil, when no eyes
were upon them, but which rested on
the heart, the warnings, the prayers
and tears ol a mother.
Others may love as loudly, hoi
never again while time is ours, shall
any one's love be to us as fond,
as tender, as devoted, as was that of
our dear old trembling mother.
Through helpless     infancy      her
throbbing heart was our safe protection and support, and through Die ills
and maladies of childhood, her gentle
hand ministered and soother! us none
other could. We feel animated ti-
strurgle more manfully in tho ureal
battle of life, when we rememlwr our
mother's holv counsel to us in childhood's early dawn and in the slipnen

uimeeded. then disregarded—live now

our sweetest recollections. Her
prayers for us in childhood—her
sparkiin* crystal tears—made an im
prcssion on our voung mind as durable as time, and oven now thev hid

do to promote llritish trad.? Ab-|

One of Ihe first things the Liberals
did    was    to grant a prtfamM   to

Irotn time to time, and is now on the

| The Herald Publishing
Why Does
Business Grow ?
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
Tl-e 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.
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.

A wedding carnival, which nearly
ended in tragedy, was described in
the Birmingham police court, and in
tlie end the bridegroom was sent to
pass his honeymoon in jail. William
(jould, ;i polisher, was married recently, and festivities followed. The
wedding guests Included Mrs. Sarah
Lyiiock, an aged woman, aunt of the
bride. Whilst the revels were at
their height the bridegroom got to
high words with his bride. The aunt
implored him not to strike his wile
on their wedding day, and the hride*
trroom responded by hurling a colander at the mediator's head, tme of
the guests extinguished the bridegroom with a saucepan, and when
llru police were called in he jumped
out through the window, -Mrs. Ly-
noek had sustained a deep wound in
the forehead, necessitating hospital
treatment. The bride being called as
a witness on her husband's behalf,
said she did not think, be meant to
do any iu.uiy, and bfKgcd that he

special circumstances. The dt pun
stipendiary said the piisoner hud a

the (act that he had just been married he eoilld not pass a less sentence tluti two months' Imprisonment.

The party consisted of Dr. J, Pratt

They embarked in the upper reaches
of the river, Intending to sail to

the boat iu the middle of the river.
They are all swimmers, but Miss
Bessie Johnson was engaged in pulling on a mackintosh when the accident happened, and she found herself tied up in ihe garment in tho
water. The others grasped the situation, and swimming to her assistance
released her. Then the party realized that they could not swim ashore
Iu consequence of the distance and tho
adverse tide. They therefore secured
the oars and a wooden hoard and so
kept themselves afloat. It was
tut to an hour before there was any

A tire occurred recently at a farm
on the Berkshire Downs. Two local
brigades, between whom keen rivalry
exists, attended, and a dilhculty
quickly arose as to which should be
in charge. A village brigade, with
a manual, claimed the honor as being
tin- first on the scene, hut the captain
of ihe otihcr brigade, who boasts ot a
su-am lire engine, Itegan to direct
operations when his men arrived. Tbe
villagers are alleged to have retaliat-
i*d by turning the hose on their
nv.ils. This went on for some lime,
when the captain ol the steamer di-
itvtpil, at short range, the full force
nf hi;, powerful pumps upon the loader of the rival brigade, knocking him
down. This was the signal fur a
general engagement, and both brigades joined joyously in tlie fray,
while the tire burnt furiously all
round them. Eventually the police
nermiflded them to turn their attention once more to the fire.
All am07.lug scene was witnessed
the other afternoon in the London
Stock Exchange. A respectably-
dressed stranger somehow managed
to gain access to the room, and, getting in amongst the members, drew a
revolver and commenced to tiro shots
in all directions. The waiters hastily struck up the man's arms, amidst
a scene id panic ou the part of the
members. Many oi tin' latter imagined t'bat an explosion had taken
place, and there was a stnmppdo for
the doors. Those nearest the individual immediately laid hold ot Mm, and
prevented    him    firing    any further
I shots. He struggled desperately to
break away from those endeavoring to
detain him, but he was overpowered,
and the police were sent for.  On at-

The method of so-called "'rotting"
stumps hy means of chemicals may
be described as follows: More two or
linn- holes in the stump 1 inch in
diameter and i; to 8 inches in length
nid nil with saltpetre (nitrate of
potash) and plug. Tbe size of the
mp must determine largely the
number ol boles and tho amount of
saltpetre to use. The sap that is
still in the wood is supposed to dissolve the saltpetre, the solution
gradually penetrating to all parts
nf the stump, rendering it readily
•oinbtistible. This impregnation may
take ,i year or more, according to
those who have had experience with
this plan. At the expiration of this
period, say, one or two years,
coal oil Is poured into the hole and
lighted. If the wood is sufficiently
tlry and contains enough saltpetre
the stump will smoulder away, leav-
Ine nothing hut ashes.
IL should be added that this
met hod soltlom proves satisfactory;
ihe hurtling is usually incomplete,
necessitating a considerable amount
of subsequent work to maVe a
thorough job of it. Those who have
had most experience in clearing land
say that for cheapness and despatch
dynamite is the best agent for
slump extraction, and that next to
dvnamite a mechanical stump puller,
if which .there are several kinds on

business that a Community generally
Liiprccintes its newspaper only after

public institution and in modern life
is a necessity. Yet, many oi tlie
supporters of a patter feel when they
pay for an advertisement in its columns, or the yearly subscription,
that they arc mabing a charity con-

both the advertiser and subscriber
get a good deal more than they pay
for. The editor is constantly beiev«:
