. Through the courtesy of Mr. A. C.
Uowness, one of the big ranchers of
th* district, a repreaeniatrre ot the
Herald waa Hits week taken aver a
large part of the St. Maryt Prairie,
that ne might be abla to Inform the
■any readers ol the Herald that there

in the Immediate vicinity of Cranb.
rook.
We had the Impression and we suppose that % number of our readers
have the same impression that 8t.
Marys Prairie waa -called a prairie
out^pf courtesy, but when we got a
view of the vast extent ot rolling
country, where we could see for miles in every direction, fields ot grain
waving In the wfnd ft ripening in the
sun, some of these fields, in foot already cut, bound and stooked.we were
surprised and delighted beyond measure and involuntarily exclaimed "Oh,
how lovely; thla Is a real prairie with
thousands upon thousands of acres of
. rich soil, all ready for the plow, with
only here and there a tree to break
.ibe monotony ot a prairie landscape."
We drove out ot the city tn Mr.

A. C. Bowneea farm, llrer* we had
leisure to examine more particularly
the merits of a farm on St. Marys prairie. On th* whole It Is a fairly level
farm with a great depth of rich (oil,
a dsrpoalt, supposed to be of volcanic
ash, and this Is characterlatic ot the
- whale prairie. There li « small lake

Ther* was a fair yield of oats, wheat

-. bushels in the acre. For the most part
I tha.straw Is short, bat when th*
moisture lay on th* ground ar gathered In th* low-lying placet there was
an abandonee of straw and th* sheaves stood thick enough to yield 26 bu-
, one's to ih* acre. Mr. Bowness is having a lot ot n»w land broken and
.mad* ready tor ant year. There I* a
tine barn on tht premises, 34x94) feet,
with stables below and hoy and groin
left and granary above.    A windmill runs a grain chopper. Mr. Bow-
.. boss olio has o fine bunch of cattle.
He ho* over MO acres under cultivation.
.   On leaving the Bowness ranch we
n   H  pawed by J. W. Foster's, Pedls'a and
Crosby's and asw In the distance the
beginnings of some recent pre-empt-
on. We visited Staples' Mill at Wy-
.    ctlffe and returned by ihe wo yof the
I Klmberley rood.
W* noticed that th* gophers bore
«■» a a-ani **n| ol tMrntu
grain crop* and unless these little
but voracious pest* pre destroyed!
they will take all the cream off the'
profits of tlie grain' growing industry'
ot the Prairie.
In conclusion, this immense depos- j
it ot fertile agricultural soil lies at the
very doors of Cranbrook, extends for
miles tn both length and breadth ond
contains the best land In the world.
There has been but one crop failure
In ton years. If It wer* irrigated there
would be nothing to-surpoes it under
the sun.

good attendance ol ' ladies present.
Mrs. Browness, who was expected to
give a demonstration on "Summer Salad*" was unable to be present, to the
general regret, but has promised her
demonstration tor the next month.
Mrs. John Shaw's departure from
the city and consequent resignation
from the Patriotic Committee, waa
generally regretted, Mrs. Shaw being

poems was presented to her before
she left the olty. Mrs. R. T. Williams'

convenor of the Patriotic committee.

Bhow, to be held on Thursday, the 29th
1nst.. were made. All exhibitors, except out nf town ones, a;e requested
to have exhibits at the Parish Hall
on Wednesday evening, with tbe exception of the cut flowers. It Is hoped
that all members will unite to make
this the best flower show we have had.
The dance in the evening should be
well patronized, as the W. I. dances
are all specially enjoyable.
Acknowledgement was received of
donations of (20.00 sent for Prisoners of War fund test month, o'.so of
500 personal property bags shipped to
Toronto.
Permission haa been received under

wounds recently, and also to Mrt.
Morris, whose eldest son died in England. '
A letter was received from Mr. Seymour urging the organisation of a Red
Crete Society In connection with the
Women's institute, vt" dicusslon of the
proposition resulted In the decision
that nothing should be done tt present and the letter was died.
Mra. E H. Seaman and Mrs. J. W
Burton were elected delegates to the
annual convention to be held ln Kasio
in September.
The treasurer's repott showed the
finances to be in good shape, a total
of i"t5 90 having been collected and
expended this year, almost wholly for
patriotic purposeses. 24 pairs of socks
were turned in for July and shipped

property bags were made, while one
dor.en were donated by Mrs. E. T
Drake, and one half dozen by Mra.
Den Burton.
The meeting closed with the singing
of the N'atlonnl Anthem.
THE HILK VENBORS
HAVE THEIR SAT SO
The dairymen have presented their
side ot the milk question to the Herald, According to their story ther* ls
no tampering with the milk that they
are .delivering around town. As to the
price,, milk has been selling all summer al Nelson and Fernie for 16 cents
a quarl and In Cranbrook II was not
relied lo 16 cents until the flrat of
August. Aa to quality we have made
enquiries and w* find that many patron*, of the dalrlei give an unquali-
lied approval to the quality of the
milk they receive. It Is rich with
cream and thoroughly nutritive and
satisfying. In every community chronic kickers are to be found as well as
ihete whote complaints are reasonable. We pay no attention to a chronic
kicker, but reasonable complaint! hy
responsible people In tuch an import'
ant matter ai one of ih* chief foodi
of th* human animal bar* a right to
be voiced in the public press. From
the evidence before us we can come
to no othr conclusion than that th*
mtlk vendora of Cranbrook do anps-
ly their patrons with aa excellent a
quality ot milk as It la possible to
give under the very adverse nnd unusual circumstance thot surround the
Industry at the present lime. As a
by-play we may say thot hay Is now
selling at from (36 to (40 a ton and
not very good ond hard to get ot
thai. Other feed also Is scare* and
Cranbrook people should feel themselves happy that they have fresh milk
to drink instead of the canned stuff.
here they hor* harrows, plows, Teht-
clea ot different kinds, cutters and
sleighs, etc, rood scrapers, canthooks
and other articles useful on a farm
or In the bush, on all of which they
are quoting specially low prices.
They have two- large warehouses,
one of which will hold 12 carloads ot
goods.   The other is a track ware-; "
house of two stories. On omr side i Cat oil' I« the Flower
tliey have a big bin into which they
unload loose oats right out of the car.
and on the other side they have a |
simitar bin for wheat .They use the
second story for unloading flour,feed,
cereals, etc.
In their Baker street store they
make .a specialty of fresh meat, fresh
fish, fruit and groceries. The meat
department ls in charge of an experienced butcher from Toronto.

Business in Cranbrook is not as good as it used to be, but
it can bemade a good deal better than it is.
Business in Cranbrook is not as bad as it might be.
If you drift, business will become worse; if you pull it
will become better.
What we mean by drifting, is allowing things to take
their own lazy course; letting the rot sink deeper until it reaches
the core; waiting for business to come to you; allowing the big
city catalogue houses to make further inroads into your business; taking a pessimistic view of the situation; continually adjusting your business to a slumping state of affairs. By so do-
ign, you assist the disintegrating process. The ultimate result
of such a course will be financial disaster.
What we mean by pulling, is pushing the nose of your
business craft out into the current, turning on the juice, starting
the engine a-going and heading up-stream; cutting out the rot
going after business with all your old-time energy; facing manfully the competition of the catalogue houses; taking an optimistic view of the situation and preparing for an increased business accordingly.
Cranbrook always has been a centre of trade for the
East Kootenays. It s an attractive spot for thousands of men
who are working on the farms, in the woods and in the mines,
Old associations die hard; to form new associations requires attraction.   Welcome the old, attract the new.
The city is doing a good deal to attract business. Its
fine electric light system, its waterworks, its sewage, its well
paved streets and substantial sidewalks are all bidders for business, and are recognized as such.
The Canadian Pacific Railway is doing a great deal to
keep business up to the mark. Cranbrook is a divisional point.
The big railway corporation distributes a great many thousand
dollars here every month. Practically all Its lines in the Kootenays converge here—the main line to the coast, the Golden
cut-off and the Klmberley branch—which make Cranbrook an
originating and a distributing point of great importance.
The energy of the public spirited citizens of the city has
made Cranbrook an attractive city. There are several handsome and substantial and substantial blocks; many beautiful
residences; splendid educational facilities; a large and well conducted hospital; good churches and capable men occupying the
pulpits; stores filled with goods to supply all ordinary demands,

There could be no better location for a sturdy young
city than that in which Cranbrook is situated. This city is the
centre of allcommercial, social, educational and political activities of Southeasfern British Columbia and there is no reason
why it should not be a prosperous and growing city.
Whatever forward movement the city decides to take
the local newspaper must be the medium through which it is
to promote its measures- Formulate your plans and give publicity to them through both the newB and advertising columns
of the Herald. There Is no other way to obtain-the results desired.
This Ib a matter that might be profitably discussed at.
the meeting of the Retail MerchantH Association to be held ln
the City Hall on Friday night.

came worse each year. Since using
lhe ."J. H. 1.. Cascade," tlrst about
four years ago, she has not been sick
a day, and lias become robuBt and
strong nguin. Should any person
