Great Wealth in the Soil about Cranbrook
"While tho earth rcmaincth seed
time uiul harvest, ami cold ami beat,
mul summer ami winter, ami day mul
night .shall not cease." Tlw good
eld bonk tells us this ami it is ilu*
truth, but how to turn cold ami
lie.it, summer ami winter ami day
ami night to the very best possible
account along the line ui making
two blades of grass grow where only
nue grow belore, or iu other words,
to make the earth productive is tlio
question that comes to tho mind ot
everyone who is in the least interested in tho land and what the
land will produce. There is no
country that lies out ot doors thut
is better adapted for vegetable
growth than this same East Kootenay of ours. Nowhere In the world
can better potatoes, turnips, carrots uud cabbages bo grown and nowhere can better prices be obtained
for the fruit of tho soil. There arc
a great number of instances that go
to show what ean be done and is
done with a garden patch in this district. Two years ago over $1000
uorth of vegetables were grown,
raised and marketed off about four
acres by a sixteen-year-old boy, and
this within a mile ot Cranbrook.
This was done by a son of Mr. John
Dcrr, who has since located at
Plains, Montana.
Peter Lund, the president ot thc
Crows Nest Pass Lumber company,
at Wardncr, raised a thousand head
of cabbages with very little trouble.
Robinson and McKenzie grow everything at their mill ranch. There
never was in any country a better
variety ot vegetables than are placed
upon the   table at that milt.    Just
think ot the employes ut a saw mill
being fed fresh strawberries three
Limes a day, but that is what the
writer has seen ut Robinson and Mckenzie's.
At Wyollffc Otis Staples, the big
.saw mill man raises large quantities
of all kinds of vegetables.
William Hamilton, of Suunyside
iamb, is one of the pioneers ot tbe
Industry ami liinls it eminently pro-
(1 table.
Not alone in the surrounding coun-
tiy. but in the city itself many
people make excellent showings ot
vegetables and fruit.
J. F. Armstrong, the government
agent, is famous fur the enormous
size of the rhubarb be raises.
.lames Ryan grows squash and
Kdward Elwell's smalt fruits are
as good as can be raised and so are
those. raised by S. 11. lloskius,
while Lawyer Morley is par excellence tho greatest raiser o! cabbages that ever happened.
A subject of this kind ts incomplete without a reference to A. E.
Watts and his Wattsburg ranch and
experimental station. Mr. Watts is
doing a great work for the country
in experimenting along every line ot
agriculture and horticulture that he
can get hold of. The Cranbrook
ilistriet is a great agricultural district ami it is only a matter of
lime when everybody will know it.

in 1907 he walked from Portland,
1007 he walked from Portland,
Maine, to Chicago, in 25 days, covering the same route in the same time
that he covered it torty years before, when he made the world's longest walk.
It is 4.000 miles from New York
City to the exposition grounds in
Seattle, but Weston declares that he
will do thc distance handily in 100
days. In England, in his younger
days, he defeated alt comers by
walking 5,000 miles in the same way.
It bas becn Weston's desire to

EIKo   correspondent   of   the Fernie

who put Cranbrook on thc map, ami

is too cheap.    With thc biggest markets of   the    Dominion at our doors

sides, for    a song.      Take the "Old
Man's"     advice and   come   down to
Elko and see for yourself.    Why pay
(300 an acre for a mountain of rocks
that vou couldn'1 even raise   trouble
on, when vou can   buy land all readv
to crop    with buyers for vour goods
at your doors, with mountain scenery
thrown In, for     one-third the    price.
With n few live men in this district

Only one week now remains for the
churches*~to complete their arrangements for the Chapman and Alexander meetings, which commence in
the opera house on Sunday, April
Uiu An explanation perhaps is
needed in connection with the name-
Chapman and Alexander, especially
as neither of these two Evangelists
themselves will be lure. They are
sailing tins week tor Australia with
number ol workers to hold real meetings in many cities under
the Southern Cross. Tho workers
who arc coming to us are men trained under these noted evangelists, thev
adopt their methods, and sing th'-ir
tongs, and arc fitted in every way
LO preach the gospel ol salvation
from sin through Jesus the Savior
of the world. Further, Mr. E. G.
Chapman, the brother of the doctor,
will lie the business head of the
scheme, fie will eome and take hold
ol ibe organizing, and will direct tbe
forces at his command all through
the Kootenay. It is most likely
that he will make his headiiuarter's
here. This gentleman, eminently
successful in business, has given bis
time to this work for the love of his
fellows and the glory uf God. He
comes absolutely without personal remuneration and devotes his time to
the purely business side ot the
arrangements,     pr. Toy, the preach-
r for Cranhrook, is a man with a
wide experience, and he brings with
him a sifted musician In Mr. .1 W.
Reynolds. The stage at the opera
house will prohably lie tiers of seats
risin" one above another (or the
fhoir. It is hoped that all who can
assist will give their names to
either Miss Connolly, Miss Finnis or
to Mr. Stevens before next Sunday,
when an united practice will he held
in the Baptist church at 8.15. Books

not lieen able to get one As they
re onlv twenty cents each it is as
well for not only the singers, but the
general public to purchase I h -*
without  delay, It should be qutto
understood that the books arc oui*
boing sold for the convenience of
ihose attending the services and for
no    idea  ol    gain    whatever. On

All who live in the vicinity of
these homes are cordially invited, lt
should lw qult6 understood that this
effort is quite an undenominational
movement, tbat is to sny, while it
being directed and financed to a
large    extent   hy thc   committee on
angel ism ot the Presbyterian
church, the movement is too big   to
nfinc within the narrow limits ol
any church or creed. Herein lies its
secret of success, its seeks to save
men from sin through the preaching
of the old gospel, it depends upon no
merely sensational methods. It re
cognizes the sinfulness of sin, and
tbe righteousness of right. In the
past, wherever these evangelists have
ministered, Ihey have left behind a
rich legacy of blessing. It is not
too much to expect that in this district, where the needs of sinning and
suffering humanity arc no less marked than elsewhere, some blessing may
also be ours, to the furtherance ot
human happiness, and for the vcih'-'al
uplift of society.

Fernie, B. C, Mar. 21 .-Yesterday
was a red letter day in the history
of Fernie, in the evening there was
a special meeting of the City Council at which the report of Consulting
Engineer John Gait, upon the feast-
..iLty of the purchase ul the electric
light and water works plants from
lhe Ciows Nest eompanv, was submitted.
Mr. Gait, in company with Engineer Putter had spent several dn-s in
iispecting these properties and the'
report submitted by Mr. Gait was
decidedly in favor of city ownership
and operation,
Accoiding to the report, the cost
of acquit ing the two plants wuuld
ipproximate (145,000. This figure
mludcs the cost of laving a pipe
line Irom Farey Creek to connect
wilh the present distributing system
and ihe purchase of the reservoir on

ihe electric light plant.
The council accepted the report and
a proposition will be submitted to
Aw ratepayers at un early date for
ihe issue of debentures for the con-
mmatlon of the proposition.

Alter the meeting of the council,
Unices' hall began to liii up with a
large crowd, gathered at the annual
meeting ol the Board of Trade.
As the results of the efforts ol
Vice-President <). N. Ross, G. F-
Stevenson and many others, there
was the largest turnout tbat has
ever been secured at a meeting of the
President Higgins ami Secretary
IVinler, of the Hosmer board were
present, and were accorded seats upon the platform with many otl-er
prominent members of the local
0. N. Ross presided and made a
short address at tbe opening. After
some routine business had been d-s-
posed of the election ol o'ueers Ior
tbe ensuing year was held. J. R.
Pollock was unanimously elected president, O. N. Ross vice-president and
O, F. Stevenson secretary-treasurer.
A full executive committee was elected and nearly fifty new members ad-
did to the roll. Col. F. C. Denlson,
U. S. consul at this port, was made
in honorary member.
The spirit of optimism   which   per-
aded the meeting was remarkably
unanimous, and the tone of each
speaker was that of unbounded hope
ior the future.
W. R. Ross, Mayor Herchmer and
ithers made felici'tous remarks, but
thc   speech of   the   evening,   which
(proved to be of the greatest interest
was that of Mr. J, U. llurd. general
manager of lho Coal company. His
remarks can be taken as authoritative and are ot meat interest to tbe
whole ol Eastern British Columbia
as they deal with a .subject that is
uf vital importance to the industrial
affairs of a very large district. Tbe
lirst statement be made brought
cheers, as he announced that he entertained no doubt as to a satlstao-
i ry settlement being reached be-
twan h s company and its employes, before the expiration of the
out contract on the lirst of April, tie
had found it necessary to withdraw
from lhe operators association at
Madeod, as matters not concerning
his company or the men were liable
to cause trouble il persisted En aud
lie was assured by the miners that
an amicable agreement would be
reached in time to avoid any stoppage of work in the Pass mines, lie
s't.tted that within the next month,
the daily output of the two mines
now being operated, would at least
equal the record month ol last July,
when a little over 1000 tons were
turned out in 2G working days from
thc whole ten mines then being operated. Tins output would be steadily
increased until he hoped that tlie
daily output would reach BOO0 tons
bv the end of tbe year. lie also
confirmed tin statement that the
company intends to -add 1000 ovens
to the ' present battery here within
tbe next two years.
All these statements, coming from
a man that the community have
learned does not Indulge In vagaries
,n ordct to tickle them into good
humor for some concession wished
f ir, carried conviction with them,
and marks a decided improvement in
the feeling existing between the eompanv and tbe citizens of the town.
This change in conditions was still
further emphasized when Manager
lluid apologized for lus apparent
lack of social and civic interest,
pleading great stress of work in
connection with the duties imposed
upon him hy Ins employers in the reconstruction of the mines and additions thereto as bis excuse. He
could not attend to both and he
believed that he could do tbe town
more good by attending strictly to
«ompany business aud allowing the
town to look after its special affairs
without his assistance.

Winnipeg, Mar. 19.—The case ol
Bent vs. the Arrowhead Lumber
company was determined today by
tbe court of appeal. This was the
Svw Westminster action for the recovery of commission lor the sale of
certain British Columbia lands. At
the first trial Judge Mathers entered
a verdict for the plaintiff for $25,-
uiiii, being one-halt of the amount
claimed, Both sides appealed
■gainst the decision. Judgment was
delivered by Chief Justice Howell and
dr. .Justice Phippen, holding that,
under the circumstances ol this case,
the company could uot be held liable
for the commission, and that the
verdict for the plaintiff must be set
as de, and judgment entered lor the
defendants with the costs of the
uial and ol the appeal.
Thomas Meredith, of New Westminster, is the principal shareholder
.n the company. Bent is a Chicago
teal estate agent, and claimed to
have brought the parties together
making the sale.
"The Mouse of Bondage," the new
plav in which Florence Roberts will
appear at tbe Auditorium on April
17th seems to have scored a really
extraordinary success. In fact the
word that precedes this play is not
merely pleasant and reassuring, but
highly enthusiastic It is declared
that Miss Roberts has had no vehicle in her career that has offered
her such salient opportunities or
which embodied a theme so daring
and original. When it is said that
the pivotal climax of the piece arises
through a vital operation by a great
surgeon upon the husband of t-he woman he (tho surgeon) loves, some
idea of the tremendous dramatic
uower of the piece mav be inn-Hned,
Miss Roberts, in the role ol the neg-
lecied wife of a brilliant English parliamentarian, has a part that suits
'o a T. her great gifts as an emotional actress. Her support Is a
verv strong one, containing the na -

A number of suggestions with regard to the September fair arc coming into both tbe Board ot Trade and
the Farmers' Institute. H is suggested to have a woman's department in which prizes will be given
for work done entirely by women,
such as bread bakimj, loncy work,
vegetables and plants grown by women ami so on. A children s department will be a feature and
prizes will be given for articles purchased or plants grown entirelv by
children. Tie-re will tit- prizes Ior
the various fruits, grams and vegetables grown, exhibits of the native
woods of the country both in the
rou-'h and finished In various ways
will he shown. A mineral exhibit
will bo a feature and it is expected
to have a large entry list of cattle
and horses. Some horse races will
also be part of the programme. Already the merchants are coming forward with offers of prizes. The
Fmk Mercantile company will -Hve a
prize of $50 in goods, as mav be decided later. .!. I). MeBride is offering a prize worth 150 in a novel
wav. It will be given to tlie exhibitor of the best collection of anything grown, raised, found, shot,
Ashed, trapped, bred or made on the
land owned by thc exhibitor in Bast
Kootenay. Starting on matters so
early in the year everything should
be, and no doubt will lie, in good
shape for the big fair in September.

(Prince Rupert Empire.)
The Victoria Colonist calls the
editor of The Empire "the Diogenes
of the North" in announcing his arrival in that city. It is not quite
clear what is meant by that statement. If it is claimed that John
Houston Jives either inside or outside
u cask, the allegation is indignantly
denied by The Empire staft". Some
of the residents of Knoxville do live
pretty close to the bung-holes of
casks containing "Hard Cider,"
"Kops Aie," "Schlitz Beer," and
other non-intoxicating drinks guaranteed to make men blithering in their
talk and wobbly in their walk, these
beverages being supplied by the cider
saloons of Knoxville, but the editor
of The Empire is not one of their
patrons. No more does John Houston live inside a cask. His "boudoir" may not be as palatial as that
of thc editor of the Colonist, but
certainly to describe it as either a
tub or a cask is to say the least,
rather misrepresenting the facts. The
"boudoir" is 12 feet hy 18 leet
which would be a cask rather too big
for even the "drouthicst" resident ot
the "dry" town of Knoxville to empty. It may be that the Colonist
intended to apply thc other yarn
about old Diogenes to John Houston,
that he roamed around with a candle
looking for a honest man. What Mr.
Houston is doing in Vancouver and
Victoria may be better known to thc
editor of the Colonist than it is up
here, but it is only suggested that a
candle is a very inefficient searchlight
with which to look tor an honest
man in Vancouver and Victoria. As
the candle was never used in Prince
Rupert, except as a substitute tor
the electric light to set type by
either ot thc two inferences may be
taken, that there were so many honest men around that it was unnecessary to look for them or that the
task was regarded as hopeless.

Today the Herald publishes the
lirst number of ils twelfth volume,
Tlie Herald has worked, lo the best
of its ability, under ihe same management, for the advancement of
Cranhrook ami Soulh Kast Kootenay.
During tlie eleven vcars jusl passed
the Herald and Its editor have made
some enemies, hul al the same time
tin* constant increasing circulation
demonstrates tin* lad tliat many
iriends have been made also. Tht
Herald is more prosperous today
than ever before and this is due, in a
great measure, If. ihe loval support
id the people ol Uranbrook and the
district. The aim of tbe Herald is
lo make volume 12 hei ter than anv
former volume.
It is understood that commencing

The London correspondent of the
Toronto Mail and Empire cables the
distressing news that it is onlv too
true that the Kind's health is the
cause of the gravest anxiety. He
savs: "The melancholy truth has
been known for some time, even to
tlie nrlnclpal newspapers, but not a
word on the subject, bas been published in Kngland, and it has been
hopid that no public attention would
be called tn it as long as he was
able to continue bis ordinary manner
of life. His condition is somewhat
complicated, but it is an affection ol
lhe kidneys tbat chielly alarms thc
doctors. It may easily happen Ihat
no actual breakdown will occur for
some months."
Duluth capitalists have purchased a
site at FJuirne on lbe north nrm of
the Fraser river for the purpose ol
erecting a grain elevator.
Tbe McUride government saw lit to
postpone the settlement of the question of timber license tenures until
next session. Iu the opinion of the
Herald the action of the government
was an unfortunate mistake. The
men engaged in the lumber business
throughout British Columbia have
spent hundreds ol thousands of dollars in securing and holding limber
limits. A saw mill institution
without timber limits is helpless. In
lact the timber limits of the different
mills constitute oue of their best assets aud it is upon these that they
have to rely to a great extent Ioi
accommodations from the banks. Tiie
tumnormcii ot British Columbia are
line other men in business—tbey are
in advance of their own condition,
and must necessarily rely upon banking institutions for money to carry
mi lhe business. II tiny had a permanent tenure of their timber limits
tliat would give them a
permanent asset on which
to       transact business. The
lumber business in British Columbia
is an industry that should be encouraged iu every way. Its development lias dime much for the province
because it has furnished employment
for thousands of people aud for this
reason the Herald regrets that the
McHride government did not see lit
lo take favorable action at the last
session. Premier McHride has given
assurance that the matter wilt receive favorable consideration at the
next session of the house and referred to the matter in the following
"Hefore the business uf ttie day
is taken up 1 would like lo make
a statement of considerable importance which has been waited
for by many people ol the province with considerable interest. I
refer to the question of the tenure of special timber licenses,
which has been the subject of
some controversy ol late, and the
principal commission of several
delegations representing the timber interests in British Columbia.
"1 beg to announce that tlie
government has come to the determination tliat the tenure ol
these licenses will, at the next
s ssion of the legislature, wceive
tlie attention of the administration iu the way ol some provision
that will make lor the perpetuity
ol thv licenses until lbe timber is
removed, but on such terms and
conditions us the government
may then deem prudent in the in-
teiests of the people of British
"It bas lieen deemed wise to defer this matter until
we get the advice
of the commission on forestry, and it is upon the report ol
that body as to the terms and
conditions advisable that the government will act."

Uossland Miner: August 8th, 100!),
will lie the semi-centennial ot petroleum. On that day, fifty years ago,
Colonel Edwin L. Brake "struck oil"
in his well near Titusvillc, Crawford
Co., Pa. Probably in all the tide of
time there has been no other such
sudden and remarkable outgrowth ol
any special industry as that set in
motion by the Drake discovery. It is
hardly a stretch of fancy to say tliat
the whole earth has since been illuminated by the oil and gasses
drawn from its depths. The United
status are still the largest producers
of petroleum, thc output ranking
fourth in value ol our commercial
products; but the industry has been
uradually extended to other discovered fields in Europe, Asia and other
parts of America. Last year the
production of oil in the United
States was over  180,01)11,000 barrels.

Member, in    Nelson News,)
That the session of the legislature
just closed was one ol the most important and at the same time one ol
ihe pleasantest in years is the opinion of James II. Schoflcld, M.P.P.
tor Vmir, who came in from Trail
yesterday. Among the measures of
great public interest disposed ol were
the Water Clauses Consolidation Act
and the bill to amend the Provincial
Elections Act, while many other useful laws were also placed on the
statute hooks. The feature ol the
session was the absence ol that
rancor, which has been in evidence in
many past sessions. While there
were times when the proceedings were
quite strenuous, there was an almost entire absence ol personalities
in tbe debates.
One ol thc most gratifying things
in connection with the session was
the excellent financial statement submitted by Hon. R. O. Tatlow, minister of finance and the large grants
for puhlie works and for public institutions. Among these were large
grants for the various constituencies
in thc Kootenay, including $50,000
lor roads, etc., in Ymir, and $10,000
for bridges and $1200 for ferries in
the same constituency, while $500
was included (or the Nelson Rifle association, the same ns was given to
similar associations in Victoria and
Vancouver. Among the places
which will benefit by the appropriation for Ymir will he Fair view.
where streets, sidewalks, etc., will
receive attention. I
Discussing the  Water Clauses Con
solidation Act, Mr. Scbofield said under it all the water rights in the
province are declared crown property. Present holders of the rights
will, of course, receive first consideration aud will be allowed sulbcieiit
waler to meet their needs, but where1
anyone bas rights beyond his necessi-|
ties, the balance over and above I
what lie actually requires will revert
to thc province aud may be given to
others in the neighborhood who require water. For the purpose ol examining into present conditions and
deciding as to the amount of water
required by each person desiring It,
a commission is to be appointed,
which will travel over the various
parts of the province, visiting eaeh
locality and personally investigating
the requirements of the diflerent. individuals aud linns and also the
sources ol supply. This work will
perhaps lake a vear or two. and the
new svstem will not be put into
up*.ration until the commission has
completed this work. The bill beintr
the most far reaching measure ol
ils kind ever brought down in the
British Columbia legislature was discussed at length. It ma" not bt
perfect, iu fact Hon. F. J. Fulton,
its author, did not make any claim
thai it was, but if any delects appear before next session thev ean be
remedied before the measure actually
"ois into operation and even alter
tliat if auy further amendments are
required they can be made • the
legislature. The object ol the eov-
eninu ut is to get a bill as nearlv
perfect as possible, one that will do
justice to those who now are without
water and at the same time protect
thc rights, so far as their requirements o, of those who alreadv hold
records. Under the act, tor example, if a man has 50(1 aeres to irrigate, hut lias secured water rights
enough for say 3000, he will lose thc
right to all above his actual requirements hut enough for these will be
assured him. Iu this way everyone
will be given a fair show and the
irrigation made possible ol thousands of acres for which under existing conditions water cannot be secured.
Regarding thc Election Act, Mr.
Schofield said that it would work
■■iimarily lo the advantage of the
woncingmen and particularly to the
socialists as a party, for it would
iMiiotc a large number of absentee
niters from the lists, while at the
.same time ample protection was given those who were rightfully on the
list. It would mean cleaner lists
and therefore more representative
elections in the various constituencies, for the bringing in large uum-
in-rs of outside voters who have become residents of other parts ol the
province would be done away with,
il was easy to see how this would
lie to the advantage of tbe Socialists
as a political party, for they say
that they never have any money to
spend on bringing in their outside
\ote. However, it was not to assist the Socialists tfoat this bill was
brought in but to give the province
better voters' lists and this it would
have the efiect ol providing.
Tlie grants Ior roads, bridges,
streets and wharves in tbe various
constituencies in Kootenay and the
Boundary were as follows:
Ymir $50,000
Slocan   40,175
Kaslo  40,000
Fernie   28,000
Cranbrook   25,000
Revelstoke  35,000
Columbia   23,850
Grand Forks   14,250
(Jreenwood  10,800
In addition to these grants these
constituencies will receive larger or
smaller amounts out of tbe general
appropriations for bridges, wharves
and tlie location ol roads, the grants
for which were respectively $225,000,
SHHl.lHKl and $5,000. Ymir, lor example, will receive out of the first of
these $10,000 and would also get in
addition $50(1 towards a ferrv over
tlie Columbia at Trail and $600 tor
another over the Kootenay river at
Lewis. The appropriations also
contain $25,000 for the rebuilding of
the court house at Fernie, destroyed
by the big fire last year, and $5000
for the government office at Kaslo.
Tlrrc is also provision made for
schools in various sections ol thc
interior, including several new buildings. Among tlie latter is a grant
nf $3500 for a new school at Creston. in the Ymir constituency.
With the estimates for the current
year there were brought down thc
simnlrmcntary estimates for the year
Hiding the last day of the present
month, containing many grants to
Kootenay. These Included $10,000
for the completion of ehe Nelson

In the supplementary estimates for
the year just closing there were also
additional appropriations of $18,000
for schools and $147,000 for bridges
throughout the province, of which the
Knot-nay country received its share.
Among thc special items provided
for were $6,350,14 for thc relief ot
the Fernie (ire sufferers, $10,000 to
the city of Fernie for the construction of municipal buildings and sidewalks and $25,000 toward rebuilding
ol the Fernie school.
It would be thus seen, said Mr.
Schofield, that thc government was
doinjr its best to assist in the development of this part of the prnv-
iiKY, besides meeting the special
claims that may be made upou it.
One of the chief subjects of discussion at the Wednesday's sitting of the
Federal Itouse at Ottawa was tlie
question of experimental farms.
Martin Burrell, Yale-Cariboo, urged
upon the minister of agriculture the
desirability of establishing one experimental station in the arid districts of British Columbia, where irrigation is necessary for proper production of fruit, etc. Owing to the
great dilliciilty ol reclamation ot the
soil, such a station would be of great
service at the present time when
people are experimenting nnd are
more or less iu the dark, the consequence being a good deal ol confusion.
Mr. Burrell said the fruit industry
of British Columbia is oue which is
getting to lie of enormous importance
to Canada, and he hoped the minister would see his wav clear to    look
into thc matter at once and establish a station at a point in British
Columbia, where he considered it
would do the most good.
A. S. Ooodeve, Kootenay, pressed
upon the government thc necessity
of further experiments in the growing
ol fruit for the purpose of improving
the market values of fruits. Such
work, be was confident, would much
more than pay for itself.
C. A. Magrath, Medicine Hat, supported the principle of thc resolution
in general, but especially in reference
to tlie west. No new country could
he settled without experiments in
agriculture, he said, and on that
basis he heartily supported the resolution.
Hon. Sydney Fisher accepted the
resolution, expressing the policy nf
the government. It would bo difficult, however, to meet the demand
for experimental stations on account
ol tlie expense.    Consequently it was
necessary to make a choice, and in
making that choice the government
was guided by thc principle of establishing (arms where they would
serve larger population rather than
smaller population, or where conditions were such that the results secured would be applied only to u narrow range. In British Columbia, be
said, the government intended to establish a farm on Vancouver island
and one on the mainland. In tbe
near future it would be necessary to
establish several experimental fauns
in British Columbia.

Why Does
Business Grow ?
THOSE 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
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERARD has one of the
b.st 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.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us. We can please you.

Home is tlte greatest school of liic.
Few can receive the honors of a college education, but all are graduates
of boute. The learning of the university may [ado, its knowledge may
moulder iit the halls ol memory, but
the simple lessons of home impressed
upon the hearts ol childhood, ili'lv

Tneto are fathers who grandly
struggle against the tides ol fate,
and uever lisp the secret ot their
despair, whoso voung dreams have all
faded, but who patiently bear thelr

There are men whose nightly return to their homes always means
needless miser- to their households.
The- lind fault with their dinners,
with their household hills, with the
children, aud with every thing else.
They make sarcastic remarks that
burn and scarify the sensitive souls
ol their wives. They curry home
the worries oi busiaess. They
"take it out" ol their families for
everything that has gone wrong ir
the day's work, and some are cowards enough lo revenge upon the innocent and helpless those wrongs and
affronts whieh tliey have not had
courage enough to resist and resent
upon the offender.

He's on the street somewhere, or at
the railway depot lumping on freight
trains, but just wltere, with whom,
iu what engaged, what plotting or
what executing for thc shrewder ones
who plot for him, you could not tell
for the Iile ol you. He has a good
home and he ought to he there at
night. He desires to bo somewhere
else with tho boys, and you lack the
moral courage to insist that he shall
be where ho should be, You hope
that he will escape the pitfall, but
you know the chances arc against
him. Why don't you do the boy the
kindness to keep him home nights'!
The time will come when he will
thank you lor it or reproach you lor
not doing it.
Une home is like a calm summer
evening or a bright, Ircsh spring
morning, because the mistress is lull
of restful sympathy, or her mind of
bright, Iresh interest in those around
her. Another homo is a gusty,
stormy morning or a log laden afternoon, when the darkness can bo felt,
because the woman who makes its
atmosphere is capricious, hasty and
ill-tempcrcd, or dull and heavy, and
careless of the comfort ol those who
depend upon her, and incapable of
putting brightness and warmth into
the hearts ot those around her because there ls none in her own heart.
Let those who are step-mothers look
to it that they "keep hearts at leisure Irom themselves to soothe and
sympathize," to create a rcstlul atmosphere for those who come in tired and weary Irom the outside and
to keep light and brightness alive in
tliclr own minds, that they may shed
them over everyone who dwells beneath her root or who sits beside
their hearth.

Ottawa, Mar. 18.—The house divided tonight on Martin Burrell's motion condemning the practice ol deferring elections beyond the regular
tlay. Forty-six was the majority
rolled up, being one less than tho
Liberal majority in a lull house.
.Sir Wilfrid Laurier was at home, not
having recovered from his indisposition, but he was paired. Mr. Sifton
appeared in the houso lor the lirst
time since he met with nn necident
while riding at Washington. He was
applauded by tlie Liberals.
Ittirn'l moved "that this house is
oi the opinion that [nr the purpose

lho lull tights attd privileges ol their
Iralii'liise, Die general elections should
be In-lil nu Hie same day throughout

Mr. Burrell advocated a lixed torm,
as in the United states.
Mr. Congdon (Yukon) said the matter was not one ol fair play or justice, but one ol geographical considerations. He agreed that tlio elections should ull be held on the same
dav. but it was not practical ia the
\ukon, and lie proposed to submit
sonic amendments to the election
act to provide that the returning ollicer may be communicated with by
Mr. Fielding said the principle ol
simultaneous polling was accepted by
all parties, but owing lo geographical conditions it was impracticable.
Mr. Burrell had adopted the way
which was the least calculated to
bring about tho reform desired, lie
could have introduced a bill to remove the exceptions to the act, but
he chose to take another position
and introduce a resolution which
must be regarded as a want of confidence motion.
Mr. Monk recalled instances oi gov
eminent supporters submitting i
grievance in this way .mil the government accepted the resolution witli
good grace. Deferred elections were
a substantial grievance. In Oaspc,
L'hicoutimi and Sagttenay tliere was
no serious contest until it was ascertained which partv was to sit on
the treasury benches. The electors
had been practically disfranchised.
This Hon. Mr. Lemieux denied. He

C'omox-Atiin (the minister's own1
constituency), it would be impossible. I
The constituency was thicc-nuartcrs
us large as Ontario. The only communication was by steamboat and
dog train. Had ho not been clcctwl j
by acclamation in February, and had'
a poll been necessary, half a dozen I
polling places would have been without ballot boxes.
Ruttan (Prince Albert, Snsk.) declared his constituency was in the'
sanio position. ]
Mr. Ooodovo said that in his own1
constituency his Liberal opponent, I
months belore the election, dcclarid'
that deferred elections wore vicious1
in principle and unfair In practice, I
and he pledged himself that the election be deferred, so as to gain noltti-
cal advantage. The Liberal candidate declared thnt ho had written
and even wired to the government at
Otlawa that his personal and political honor were at stake, hut despito
lliis the government purposely delayed the writ.
Ralph Smith pointed to Mr. Burrell's election os a disproof of his
nt'giiim-nt that deferred elections wero
invariably favorable to the government returned at tho
general election. lie hoped,
however, the government would rc-,_
(luce the number nf deferred elections. ' '
lie did not believe that there had *
boen any necessity for ono in Kootenav.
Sir. Foster argued that deferred
elections were the onemv of tlie
country, because It gave the opportunity for the worst kind nl argument, that the peoplo must vole for
lhe partv which was going lo exercise the patronage.
Mr. Knowlcs (Moose Jaw) said he
could understand whv Mr. Foster did
not like a deferred election, because
his nwn   election   hud been deferred
o-- (i years, during which time he
was "a wanderer on the face of lhe
earth." He pointed nut that in Edmonton there nre two nroviticinl constituencies, and in the recent elcelion
there was not a single vote cast in
one of them, that of Peace River.
In his own ridiii" nine divisions were
disfranchised. This would not have
occurred if the election had been dc-
Mr. Barnard (Victoria) said he
had not intended taking part in the
debate, but since the nrecedin* sneaker had referred to the Victoria election episode he proposed to have
something to say of the career of the
minister ol inland revenue. Mr.
Templeman had been defeated in Victoria at tho general elections of 18(11
and isnr, and a by-election In MOB.
Mr. Barnard had more reason to regret ihe Victoria Inlegram incident
than had the minister, but the telegram had nothing to do with the
results. They knew the stand Mr.
Borden had taken on Asiatic immigration.
Tho vote resulted: Yeas, 00; nays,

A strange story of a desperate adventure with a lion m told bv Lieutenant Anderson, of thc lath Hussars,
who has just arrived Iu England suffering wiib blood poisoning. About
two months ago Lieutenant Anderson
went out with a native servant for a
day's shooting on the borders of
Somalilaird and Abyssinia, lie encountered a lion at short distance,
and lired, the shot grazing the animal's skull ami slightly wounding it.
Then the Infuriated beast leap! upon
the lieutenant, throwing him to tbe
ground ami biting hlm through the
knee, just as he fired a second shot
from his rifle. The animal continued to claw and bite the hunter,
whilst he, fighting desperately for lus
life, continued to club the lion with
ihe butt-end of his rifle, All tin
lime blood was streaming from tin
woumls of the lion, which was nf unusually large size, The native servant, fortunately, was quite ooual
to the occasion. Although practical
lv unarmed, he rushed to the aid of
his injured master, anil made such an
attack on the lion that al length the
wounded animal slunk away, leaving
Lieutenant Anderson in a vcr* '■re-
carious condition. Subsequently the
lion was found dead a short distance
from the scene of the encounter, ami
the injured officer was conveved to
the coast. While .on the liner Lieutenant Anderson was so ill that it
was found necessary to perform an
operation to save his leg, and he is
still very ill.
The performance of "Julius Caesar"
hy the Sonipting Village Players,
which took plnco recently nt the
Theatre Royal, Worthing, was well
worth seeing. The east was entirely filled hy working men ami bovs—
one of them a carpenter, another a
market gardener, the rest for tho
most part agricultural laborers.
Soimiting is a small villains near the
Sussex coast, between Wort-bin-* and
Lancing. Its working-class Inhabitants seem to be seized with a liiirl)
dramatic fervor. Men, women nnd
children, they act plays and even
write them; they shout their words
to each other as they work in the
fields, and ii is no uncommon thing
for a whole family to spend the evenings in their cottages rehearsing each
other in their respective pints. They
owe their enthusiasm for literature
aud many other things to Miss Harriett Finlay Johnson, who came as
mistress to the village school eleven
vears ago. She began, of course,
wilh the children, taught them to
sin*** and to dance and to take an interest in everything thev saw around
them. A little later their mothers
became imbued with the dramatic
s»lrit, and now the men, nut to be
Iseaicn, have tackled Shakespeare.
They chose "Julius Caesar," because it is "a man's play" and eliminated the women's parts.
In recognition oi the services of his
brother and bis other assistants in
building up his hosiery business, Mr,
Evan Roberts, of Cardiff, lias, ou his
retirement, banded over the concern
to them. Tire gill is subject to the
payment ot au annuity of £1,000 to

Mew, Mr. Roberts disclaimed having
done anything beyond what was right
and just. "Because 1 live ye shall
live also," he said, "has been mv

the business who have given me the

Au unusual objection was made before the Birmingham licensing judge
recently. Mr. O'Connor, solicitor,
objected to the renewal of the music
license of the American Skating

monev returned, solely on thc ground
that he was an African. Mr. O'Connor added that lhe notification
Ihal for the future the rink would

the university was not sufficient, and
asked that the rink should be open to
all persons, irrespective ot nationality, so long as they were under the
protection of the law and were respectable citizens. The management
of the rink frankly admitted that
thev had injudiciously refused an African gentleman admission. They regie! ted whut had been done, aud had
apologized, lu future the rink would
