Likely
A meeting of importance was held
in lhe Y.M.C.A. on Thursday evening
last, when Lhe Cranbrook Amateur
Athletic Association elected executive
officers to take the place of two of
its members recently elected, but who
had returned. The two officers were
Mr. Bert Sang, President, and Mr.
Harry Laker, Sec'y-'Ci'ensurer. After
the resignations were accepted the
meeting elected Mr. Frank Constantino as President, und Mr. Geo. T.
Moir ns See'y-Treasurer.
The meeting, which wbh well attended, was a very enthusiastic one,
the election of Mr. Constantino being a very popular one, as was also
that of the energetic former Secretary, Mr. Moir, it being the opinion
of even many who did not see things
in the same light as Mr. Moir that
his absolutely unselfish work should
be recognized. Mr. Constantine promised the advocates of Sunday ball
that the matter would receive every
consideration, and that doubtless arrangements mutually satisfactory
could be made.
The new list of officers for the
coming term of the C.A.A.A. are as
follows:
Hon. President Dr. F. W. Green
President   F. Constantine
Vice-Pres J. M. Clark
Sec'y-Treas Geo. T. Moir
The balance of the executive consists of representatives of every
sport affiliated with the C.A.A.A,

TEND CONVENTION
Mr. W. S. Santo leaves on Sunday I
for Spokane to be present at lhc big.
mining convention which is to take
place in that city from the 30th oi J
November to the Bth of December,!
Mr. Santo, who is well versed in re-1
gard to mining conditions in Bartf
Kootenay i» being sent as representative of the Cranbrook Hoard oi !
{Trade, and this body is deserving of *
much credit for their action.
Mr. Santo has also been requested
to attend a meeting of the members
of the Pacific Northwest Advisory
Board to the American Railroad Association, which is to take place in
Seattle from Dec. 4th, Mr. Santo being one of four memhers to this
board from British Columbia. The
object of this hoard is to form a common meeting ground between shipper
and railroads, for the better understanding of rnilrond questions, nnd
to adjust informally car service differences which may arise between
carrier and shipper, and also Riving
Ihe shipping public a direct voice in
the car service division on all matters
of mutual concern.
Thc Girl Guide movement in Cranbrook hns come to the parting of
the ways. Either it iB to go on, with
the backing and support of the parents of the girls, or it is to stop for
lack of it.
To continue to function the Girl
Guide patrols must have an association of the mothers, to whom the
Guide leaders may appeal for any
special needs. The year of the'last
elected Association is up, and two
meetings have Been called for the
purpose of electing another, but no
one hus attended, outside of last
year's executive.
This executive is making one more
attempt to interest the mothers.
The Guide leaders have consented to
put on a demonstration of the various things the girls learn to do .at
their meetings, so that the parents
may see for themselves and judge
of their usefulness. This demonstration will take place on the evening of December 1st, at eight o'clock,
after which the mothers tare asked
to remain to discuss the continuance
or non-continuance of the work.
It would be considered a calamity
by most citizens if the Boy Scout
movement were to perish for want of
support. The Girl Guide movement
does for the girls what the Scout
movement does for the boys. Why
is it not as important?
Many people have only a hazy idea
of the aim3 of the Guide movement,
or of what the girls learn. It is for
this reason that next week's demonstration is to be staged. The girls'
know^dge of many useful things—
knowledge not to be obtained elsewhere—is most surprising. They
learn of the Morse code, woodcraft
igns, many kinds of knots, nature
lore an First Aid. They know what
to dc 'or cuts, bleeding, choking,
• i ■■■.ii i  burns and fainting.
Car these things, together with the
sense 11 responsibility, honor and
patriot! m instilled at all times, fail
to ir.'!■'  better citizens of the girls?
Tuesday evening, December 1st, at
eight o'clock. Let every mother of
a Guide be there.
The Executive Committee.
NEW MEMBERS AND
BOOKS BEING SOUGHT
FOR PUBLIC LIBRARY
Friday evening last a meeting of
the directors of the Crnnbrook Pub-
lie Library took place in the rooms,
when several matters of Importance
came up for consideration. All
members of the board were present,
including Mrs. J. II. McQuaid, recently elected to tuke the place of
ex I*rincipu1 Porter, resigned. It
being felt thnt there arc many who
have not been asked to join thc lib
rury who would likely wish to uvail
themselves of its privileges, n now
oanvasslttg committee under the
leadership of Mrs. P. W. Willis wns
appointed to make a further canvas
of the city. The committee nt the
same time will canvas for books.
A real interest is now heing taken
in thc library and new members arc
joining every week.
The library is open from seven to
ten every Tuesduy, Thursday and
Saturduy evening.
Membership can he tnken out on
any of these nights. If you have a
book that you are through with,
leave it at the library and it will
be appreciated.

ran true to form. For tho occasion
the ladies had the hall very prettily
decorated in thc blue and white colors of the club, tho very pleasing
effect obtained being the cause of
many complimentary remarks as soon
as the guests entered the hall. With
the commencement of the dance it
was evident that Queen Happiness
was to reign supreme, and her subjects who thronged the hall were
soon imbued with the same spirit, and
as jolly a dance as has ever been
staged in Cranbrook was the result.
The dancers seemed to find themselves possessed of winged feet as
they lightly foxed it or one-stepped.

a good supply of pep. Each dance

two o'clock, there being no inclination or thought of stopping, another
hour was decided on, and only the
fear of being mistaken for owls deterred the ladies from agreeing to
another hour after that,

that had fallen out from the tender,
and the upset coal car on the train,
along with a quantity of rock and
other debris that had been shot into
the lake when the engine and tender
and the carl plowed their way down
into the water.
This proved to be the case, and on
Wednesday afternoon the diver, in
exploring a heap of debris some
distance from the engine, and
where the tender had been, uncovered the feet of the victim of tbe
accident, and when equipped with
other tools was able to extricate the
body on Thursday. It was raised to
tbe surface and brought to the city,
being removed to the undertaking
parlors. A suction pump was put
into use to enable the diver to extricate the body.
It was stated at the scene of the
wreck that an effort was to be made
Thursday to lift the fore port of
the engine, though there wa3 some
question as to whether the equipment
to hand was heavy enough for this
work, and whether the track would
stand it. Heavy lifting equipment
went through from Calgary on Wednesday to assist in raising the engine.
W. J. Renix, master mechanic for
B.C. lines of the C.P.R., arrived on
Tuesday evening, and took charge
of the operations at the wreck. He
had the heavy crane from Calgary
rushed through and taken out to
Jerome early Thursday morning.
In the meantime, an organized effort was made on Wednesday afternoon to drag the water near the
scene of the accident, in the possibility that the fireman might have
been thrown clear and stunned before he reached the water, and his
body drifted away.
No effort was spared, both by
the railway company, and by friends
of the deceased fireman in the brotherhoods and societies with which
he was connected, to recover the
body in order to relieve the suspense
of the widow and friends of tho
family.
Preparing  Ice  For  Rink

ALL SAINTS CHURCH,
KIMBERLEY, RECENTLY
OPENED AND DEDICATED
connected   with   thc   work   of   the   ib was announced from London, Eng-
Church of England In Kimberley.     I land, that   an   exhibit   of   Alberta
The new building contains well ap-  creamery butter, salted, made in the
pointed residential quarters for tho' plant of P. Burns Company at Ed-
Thc Anglican Church building in
Kimberley is now an accomplished fact und the opening services on
Nov. loth will be long remembered
by all who were privileged to attend,
including many from Cranbrook.
In the course of a very few weeks
a beautiful church has been erected
nnd equipped, and to say that it is
a credit to Kimberley, nr to any town,
is merely stating the simple truth.
The Gothic windows, arched chancel, beautiful two manual organ, nnd
other furniture, all bear testimony to
the devotion which hus underlain thc
building, completion ond dedication
of the church lo the service of Almighty God.
A vestry and kitchenette go to
complete an edifice in every way
worthy of its high purpose.
The builders, llu- Otis Staples Co.
und the carpenters under Foreman
England, certainly deserve credit for
the work and their kindness in rushing it through.
A ehuir hus been culled into heing
and, besides leading the hearty c
gregational singing, rendered in
manner entirely satisfactory the
beautiful anthem, "Seek Ye the
Lord," in which Mrs. E. Marsden sus.
tained the solo part in her usual
charming manner, Mr. E, Marsden
efficiently presided at tbe organ.
Appropriate hymns und special
psalms were sung, and the congregation showed their evident appreciation by the way in whicli tliey henrti.
ly joined in.
About 200 worshippers attended
the dedication service in the evening,
and the offertory for the building
fund was eminently .satisfactory.
At the morning service Archdeacon
Graham spoke impressive words based
on the .steadfast faith referred to in
St. Paul's epistle to the Hebrews,
and mentioned the fruits of fuith and
patience exemplified in the beautiful
building to be dedicated In the even
ing. The happy choice of the name
of All Saints was the subject of beautiful comment and commendation.
The vicar, Kev. W. J. Crick, assisted in the morning and evening:
and was felicitated by the preacher
on the .success of the work curried
out with the assistance of the parish oners.
In the evening the beautiful dedication service prescribed by the
Book of Common Prayer wus conducted by the Archdeacon, who was
assisted, in addition to thc vicar, by
Rev. P. V. Harrison, Rural Dean,
of Cranbrook. The sermon was
based on Matthew 2(!-lfi, "What shull
a man give in exchange for his soul.'
The Archdeacon pointed out that
this sentence is often misunderstood.
It is frequently thought to mean
"what shall a mun tuke for his soul,"
instead of "how shall he obtain his
soul." Any person's body is useless
without a soul, and in the same way
the church would he useless without
the soul, it is therefore the duty of
all to put a soul into thc building and
community by way of sacrifice, love
and devotion. A building, however
simple, with a soul is really beautiful, but tt building, however magnificent, without a soul, is useless.
Archdeacon Graham Ig a favorite
with local congregations, and that
he was able to he there at that
time was a delight to all in uny way

residence  there.

An enthusiastic meeting of curlers was held on Tuesday of lust week
for reorganization work for ihe sen-
son. Sherwood llerchnier occupied
the chair and gave nn interesting talk
on curling mutters generally.
The election of officers then look
place and resulted ns follows:

Wm. Baldrey and Jack Wallace
were appointed a membership committee and will endeavor to secure as
many curlers for the season as possible.
The annual fee was fixed as follows: Old curlers, $15; perfectly
green curlers, $10.' This should be
an incentive for new curlers to join.
Old curlers in tho past have always
been generous in letting new curlers
use their rocks, nnd the meeting
hoped that the policy would be continued to a greater extent.
An executive meeting wns held
after the general meeting, when applications for tho position of ice man
were received. The position was offered to Tom Shorthouse on account
of being an old member of the club
and having previous experience.
As soon as the membership com

the seventy odd councils in the Province asking for an expression of
opinion on a prosposal to change the
date of municipal elections from
January to December, which latter
date is now in effect in Vancouver
and Victoria. Of the thirty-seven
replies which were sent to the com

districts expressed themselves for
December elections and nine districts
and four cities for January. The
committee heard thc report and left
the matter over for further consideration.
LOADING TWO GRAIN CARS A MINUTE
IN RECORD CANADIAN NATIONAL MOVE
DELIVERIES of grain to tho
lakehead by the Canadian National Railways during September just closed exceeded the combined deliveries of September, 1924,
and 1028, according to grain figures
issued at Winnipeg on Oct. 1st,
18,913 cars were delivered during
September, 1026, against 4,661 in
September, 1924. and 12,656 in the
sumo month of 11)23. The daily
average for September, 1925, wns
030 curs against the previous record
of 322, established in September,
1923.
New records were made by tho
Canadian National In other brunches
of the grain movement also. Marketings during the month were 52,-
207,000 bushels ngninst the previous
high mark of 80,770,000, mado in
September, 1923. Loadings wero
27,878 cars and 37,217,000 bushels
during tho month compared with
22,508 enrs and 28,472,000 bushels in
September, 1923. Total loadings on
Canadian National lines to the end
of September this year were 29,284
cars nnd 39,038,000 bushels, agninst
11,079 cars containing 14,632,000
bushels at the same date last year.
On several days toward thc end
of the month, loadings reached from
1,400 to 1,500 cars per day, which
during the ten-hour working day required the loading of approximately
two and a half cars per minute iu
order to reach this total. Reducing
the time to seconds it was estimated
thnt at least 60 bushels of grain (the
contents of a farmer's wagon box)
were loaded into a car on Canadian
National Western lines every second
during the ten-hour working day.
Tho heaviest week of tho
senson by four million
bushels in grain marketings closed on Oct 1st.
Loadings for the week
were heavier than any
previous week sinco the
opening of the grain season by 1,200 cars or nearly
one million bushels. Compared with statistics for
tho same period
last year, tbe
week's marketings
were just twice those of 1924, while
the loadings were larger by 3,837
cars, or 4,258,000 bushels.
A record week was also experienced at the lakehead, when 6,149
cars of grain were unloaded and 60
boats, carrying 13,292,000 bushels,
were cleared for eastern markets.
During the same week last year only
2,208 cars were unloaded and 29
boats, carrying
6,806,000 bushels,
were cleared.
Canadian National loadings for
the week by provinces were: 3,-
486,000 bushels in
Manitoba; 0,970,000 bushels in Saskatchewan; 1,571,000 bushels in Alberta; making a total of 10,475,000
bushels, or 8,580 earn, for the period.
Marketings at C.N. points were:
4,167,00 bushels, Manitoba; 11,825,000
bushels, Saskatchewan; 2,220,000
bushels, Alberta; total, 17,568,000
bushels. This leaves in store nt

Radium Hot Springs In Tne Rocki
les
Oixty-four yean ago, when Sir
^ Goorge Simpson wai making
the first overland tour around the
world, he came across some hot
springs on the western slopes of the
Rocky Mountains which the local
Kootenay Indiana frequented on account of their curative properties.
As the white settlers came In after
the Wild Horse Creek Gold Rush,
these came to be called The Fairmont Hot Springs, and became t
well known landmark on the Government road from Lake Windermere to Cranbrook. In 1012 an English rancher, Mr. Heap Holland, purchased them and erected bathing facilities, and two years ago made expensive improvements In connection
pith his development of a bungalow
camp, The waters on analysis
.proved to contain a higher percentage of radium In solution than any
other Springs on the American Con-
m»m\ higher tw ***** Home at
Arkansas, In addition to valuable
curative deposits of magnesium and
lime. The Canadian Pacific Railway had obtained right of way
through his property In consideration of calling their station Radium,
and these Radium Hot Springs now
attract many visitors, the camp having a capacity for seventy persons.
A special bath Is now being constructed for the Indiana, under the
superintendence of Louis Arbel, the
Kootenay Chief, while the white folk
have a spacious swimming pool surrounded by scrupulously clean dressing rooms. There is a tennis court
and horses with guides are available
for riding the neighboring trails,
while large numbers of automobllists
visit the Springs during the summer
months. Mr. Heap Holland haa the
Intention of making this an all-year
resort, as the waters have a temperature of 120' and never freeie.
The only fly In the ointment Is
that the Qovernment operates rival
hot Springe ea th* Butt-Hinder-
mere Road, which are also called Radium Hot Springs, thla being th*
post office address. These Springs
are also highly curative, and hav*
also a neighboring bungalow camp
which was erected by the Canadian
Pacific Railway, and Is operated
very successfully by the Misse*
Armstrong. The Government Hot
Springs wero for many yeara known
as the Sinclair Hot Springs, being
named after James Sinclair, an old
time pioneer, who Is the first known
white man to have crossed the Sin*
clalr Pass In 1842. The virtues of
these Springs were known not only
to the Indians but to the animals,
and It Is credibly reported that In
the old daya bear* used to bath*
their paws ln the waters to secure
relief from rheumatism. While

Thc regular social gathering of the
Lumberton Club was held last Wednesday evening in the Lumberton
Hall. Six tables of cards were in
play during the early part of the
evening. Refreshments were served
after the conclusion of the cards.
Thc remainder of the evening was
spent in dancing. The monthly business meeting and annual election of
officers will take place this week on
Wednesday evening; at which time
a complete report will be given by
the treasurer of the club, and considerable business of importance to
the club will also be brought to the
attention of the members. It is
hoped that a large crowd will turn
out. The program has been arranged
so that ciirMs will start at an earlier
hour than has been the custom, owing to the extra amount of business
to cume before the club.

Mr. Harley Miner, who hog been

Lumberton on Sunday afternoon of
this week.
Logging operations of the Spruce
Mills are under full swing in the
four camps. About three hundred
nnd fifty men are employed in the
woods. This is the largest number
of men ever employed at one time
since the start of operations in 1921,
in the woods. There has been no
hauling up to the present time, however; this will be started in the near
future. The caterpillars have been
overhauled very recently and are in
excellent condition for their winter's

zens of the province asking them to
accept the chairmanship of the local
committees to secure its observance.
The Chairman of the B.C. Joint
Committee of Relief, popularly
known as "the Armenian Relief," has
received favorable replies from all
parts of the province. Asked as to
just what Golden Rule observance
means, it can be said:
"It means one orphanage meal, not
a starvation meal, in each co-operating home, bare boards, simple fare
like rice, brown bread, stewed fruit,
cocoa, in cups if possible, fellowship
with 100,01)0 or more children in
Bible lands who have this fare every
day, and for whom the orphanage
supplies their only food, .shelter and
present parentage, and a donation to
their funds. Bear in mind, these
children nre the survivors of those
who were massacred by the Turks because they became our ailie.s and because of their Christian faith. They
are international wards."
W. II. Malkin, the treasurer of the
B. C. Committee, is in high hopes
from the organization of local groups
that Golden Rule Sunday, Dec. 0, will
not disappoint the tens of thousands
who have reason to hope for life itself upon its wide observance. It was
observed last year in over 50 countries, ond it will have still wider observance this year. A local meeting
may be held to discuss the matter.

Due to almost winter weather putting the harvest of much of the Alberta tuber crop out of the question,
considerable tonnage of Kast Kootenay potatoes has moved into Crow
line points in that province, while an
ever-increasing demand continues al
Kimberley. A few cars have been
sold in Minneapolis at very satisfactory returns to the grower.
Although o greatly increased acreage in the Creston district was set
out to potatoes in 1925, it is doubtful
if the crop there will supply thc local
needs. The very dry summer kept
the yields down to less than a ton per
ncre on more than a few ranches
there.
i
POTATO CROP BECOMES
ONE OF CONSIDERABLE
MAGNITUDE THIS YEAR
The total potato crop in East Koo-
'tenay is approximately 3G00 tons,
according to Dominion fruit and vegetable inspector A. McL. Fletcher,
who wa8 here on an official visit recently, and who made a visit to several other points in East Kootenay.
According to the figures given Mr.
Fletcher, the average yield hns been
about seven tons per acre, as the district agriculturist's figures show that
nearly 900 acres were planted to potatoes in thc area, which stretches
from Flagstone on the south, west to
the Cranbrook district, and north to
Golden, in which latter district, owing to its close proximity to the Dominion experimental farm, considerable attention has been given to
spuds.
Mr. Fletcher states that up till this
week the growers had been in no
hurry to sell, even at offers as high
as -$50 a ton, and much of the crop  .  }}'M,<: walking across the railroad

particular cjuality makes him stand out

lhat wc don't understand wc usually
ibject it to a close examination and
.uksis so let's do thc same with the
Xpert let us place him under the
■nirrnscope and let its lens magnify his
tut i.s. Let us observe and analyze his
bidding nnd play.
The following hand is illustrative of
the writer's contention that in the
laiiRiiaite of sport, the expert "has everything."
Hand No. 1
Hearts —A, 10,9, 7
Clubs — Q
Diamonds — A, K, 10, 5
Spades — K, Q, 8, 7
No score, rubber game. The expert, Z,
dealt and bid one diamond, a perfect
example of thc four card suit bid ir
prefmnce to thc no-trump. The singleton club is a danger spot in no-trump
because a good player with a set up
club suit and thc lead would pass the
no-trump. In this particular hand, A
had a six card club suit and his partner
the are of spjdes so that a no-trump
bid by North would have failed to make
the contract by one trick. Z, however,
possessed the first requisite oi the ex-
l>crt, good judgment, so bid one diamond. A passed and Y bid twodiamonds
to give his partner another chance to
bid. B passed and Z now had to do a
little thinking. Y's bid of two diamonds
indicated a willingness on his part to
have Z bid another suit. This suit could
be either dubs, hearts nr .*'•'»•*.
expert figured that his partner would
not bid two diamonds merely to obtain
a club bid from him bcc^iM It is just
as difficult to go garie at c'ubs aa in
diamonds. There would be nothing to
gain by such targes go Y must be prepared for a licart or spa-is L:d. Z, therefore, bid two s-.'^'les. A passed and Y
bid three diamonds. B passed and Z was
now certain that Y was hoping for a
heart bid so bid tarre hearts with the
greatest assurance in the world. All
passed. Y'fl hand was as follows:
Hearts—K. 8, 6,4
Clubs-J, 7
Diamonds — Q, J, 9, 7, 2
Spades — 6, 4
At hearts Z made four odd, losing only
one heart, one club and one spade trick.
At diamonds, the result v.      I have
been the same so the expci I filia
tion and clear analysis of his ,,.rtner's
bidding gave him a game not otherwise
possible. How many players would
have bid this hand like the expert?
The foregoing hand was not selected
as unusual but only as representative
of thc margin of superiority that the
expert has over the average player. To
excel nt auction, as in any other game,
the exiwrt must "have everything." He
must be able to do the right thing at the
right time and it is this quality that is
most strongly evident in the hand given. It may seem easy and the expert's
play and bidding the natural thing to
do but how many players could honestly say that in actual play they woe I
have done the same? If they can, they
are in thc class of the expert. If not,
they still have something to which to
look forward. We cannot all be experts
but we can all improve our game by
analysing the expert's methods and
profiting thereby. Put the expert "Under the lens" at every opportunity and
you cannot help but benefit. Another

The new bus put on the roud recently by Brown's Bus Line, and now
running between Crnnbrook ajid
Kimberley, has been attracting a
good deal of attention in both
places, and indicates that the Bu^
Line is endeavoring to provide the
best possible service for travellers
between the two places. The cur is
a White truck chassis, onto which has
been built a fifteen passenger sedan
body, designed and constrctued iv.
Calgary, by the Totem Manufacturing Co. The finish is of two-toned
gray enamel, with light blue trimming which brings out well the handsome lines of the body design. In
equipment, capacity, finish and com*
fort, and considering also the nature
of thc ronds over which it has to
travel) the new bus compures very
favorably with rapid transit busses
in nny other part of the country.

"The Ten Commandments," which
A. C. Blaine presented to Cranbrook
theatregoers on Thursday, Friday and

which had such record runs in other
cities, was also much appreciated
here. Cranbrook film fans are fortunate in being able to see these better pictures which the management
of tbe Star is bringing from time to
time. That the craze for jazz has
not entirely obliterated the liking for
the older forms of melodies was
shown by the many expressions of
appreciation of the playing of old
hymn tunes with which the orchestral selections wero interspersed.
Another picture which ranks among
the best is "The Lost World." This,
we understand, is booked for December 9, 10 nnd 11. It is n First National production.

BAD THRESHING SEASON
SENDS MANY PENNILESS
MEN HOME WESTWARDS
Cranbrook is entertaining n considerable number of voluntary guests
of lnte, and a situation is being created that calls for the exercise of much
tact on the part of the different police
forces In the city. Thi.s has been
brought about by the arrival here recently of a large number of men who
have been beating their way west on
freight trains, und who have therefore to stop off here. They are mostly harvesters returning from the
prairies, and most of them without
a cent to their names, a fact arising
out uf so many of them encountering
such exceptionally unfavorable weather for threshing on the prairies
that they were unable to get much
iteudy work. They have not
been allowed to remain in Lethbridge.
or other prairie points, but have been
moved on, and most of them are
heading again for the coast. It has
been found also that a good many of
them are Americans, and these are
also being headed towards their
homes, most of them being unable to
ride anything other than the rods.
They have been disembarking
from the freight trains coming from
the east, forty, fifty and sixty strong,
and have been passing west again
with the departure of every train,
one train crew saying this week thai
they took about fifty hobos with them
on their regular trip west. Some of
these indigents have appeared at the
city police station and asked for assistance, in the form of some food
and drink. This has been furnished,
with the advice that they take the
first opportunity to get out of town,
and mostly this has been done. Some
have asked the police to get in touch
with relatives for them, in order that
money might be sent them.   In all

put on by several of the town's
young men. The boys set to with a
will and put forth their best efforts
to make the affair a success, with the
result that it was one of the best
dances of the year. The hall was
nicely decorated with paper streamers and toy balloons, suspended from
the ceiling and walls. During the
supper hour the ballons were taken
down and distributed among the
ladies present. Both spiral and cut
confetti were other features which
contributed to the gaiety fo the co-
casion. The music was furnished by
thc Colin Common's Orchestra, of
Fernie, and the dancers are out to
"tell the world they know how to
play," to use their own expression.
The crowd consisted of people from
Bull River, Jaffray, Elko, Waldo and
Fernie, beside the Wardner people
present.
Jack Cumberland and Pete Hurry
spent several days of last week at
the home of the latter in Jaffray, taking a few days' hnnting.
Mrs. Herb Headdon, at present of

after the closing of the school term
for thc Christmas holidays, so the
boys may prepare for their usual

Harold Anderson had quite an odd
experience while out hunting on Sundny last. Harold Is one of :our
youngest sportsmen and on that day
bagged his first deer. After making
sure the animal was dead, Harold
returned home for help to bring in
the carens. Mr. Anderson, sr. then
volunteered and started off, bnt upon
reaching the place indicated, was unable to find it. He returned home
and again set out, this time in company with Harold, thinking he had
mistaken the place. Upon their arrival, however, the deer had disappeared, and after considerable
searching for tracks to find out
whether or not the animal was not
dead and had got away, both Mr.
Anderson and Harold were forced
to the conclusion that some poor
sport had taken another man's kill.
Tough luck, Harold.
The first meeting of the newly reorganized Recreation Club of Wardner took place on Tuesday evening

all last year's members were in evidence nt the meeting and several

EVERYDAY HEROISM
ALEXANDRA THE HOOD
OUEEN Alexandra, Dowager Queen of
Britain and Ireland, and the colonies, died on
Friday afternoon last, and mourning has been general. As the consort of King Kdward VII, she ascended the thone after Queen Victoria had closed her
long and memorable reign of over sixty years, and
she filled the onorous position in a manner well calculated lo hold the affection the British people gave
her so unstintingly.
A daughter ul the reigning house of Denmark, Alexandra had almost readied her eighty-first
birthday when the end came. She came to Britain
as a bride over sixty years ago, and the vociferous
welcome accorded lu her al thai time was one of the
most wonderful and most spontaneous outbursts of
patriotism that England has ever seen. Her unaffected charm went straight to lhe hearts of the
British people, aud the friendships she made on the
occasion of that triumphal entry into thc country
stayed with her till the end, and there will be some
folk iu this city who can recall later triumphal public appearances Queen Alexandra made subsequently
in Britain, With the passing of the latu King Edward some years ago, Alexandra went into thc background as the dowager queen, hut the British public
did not forget her, and never failed to register their
regard for the queen-mother when occasion permitted.
Only those who have been fortunate enough
to witness one of those loyal demonstrations can
really appreciate the depth of feeling they sprang
from. Only those who have heard the tolling of the
great hell of St. Paul's Cathedral, which rings only
when royalty has passed away; and those who have
seen the crowds wait for hours in the rain, for a
fleeting glimpse of a queenly and ever-youthful looking figure passing through the streets, can appreciate
the poignant sorrow which lhe British people as a
whole feel iu (he passing of Queen Alexandra. Some
who have seen the patriotic demonstrations of earlier days say they displayed an abandon that the
present day knows not of. This docs not indicate
that the present day is any less loyal than the previous generation, but that the latter were in closer
contact with the institutions that the British nation
regard as the mainspring of their patriotism. i
Thousands of people will follow the course of'
the plain casket, made of British oak, from Westminster Abbey, where a few short years ago the
triumph of Alexandra's coronation with King Edward was seen with brilliance, to the royal mausoleum at Windsor, where, tragically enough, sixty
years ago the gaiety of her marriage to the royal
prince of England was enacted, who in later years
was to become known as Edward the Peacemaker.

A   DIFFERENT COURSE
_^^i «T is not always tlie human element that fails in
\ the train wreck. Sometimes causes intervene
that cannot be forestalled, and whicb no amount of
Great Precautiou can prevent.   Such was the case in the
lamentable accident last week by which a railroad
worker of this city lost his life.
In these cases, when it is known the human
element stands true to the heavy responsibility placed
upon it, there c-jmes consolation from knowing
that death came in the execution of duty, and the
honor of those who die in that way is none the less
whether they die on the field of battle, or ou the
railway, lt is the manifestation of the same spirit,
ii willingness to go thc limit, in thc face of a knowledge that hazards arc always present.
There arc always beard at such times
those who say that these catastrophies could 1
averted by adopting certain courses of action, but
these questionable suggestions invariably come af
terwards, and not beforehand. Big corporations
are not always as soulless as some would make out,
and tbe day is past when they can neglect to take
precautions that the interests of the safety of their
cmoloyees demands. Apart from the humanitarian
impulses which the heads of these institutions feel
as men, governments are alert at this day and age
to watch for the interests of those who hazard their
lives.   But no amount of watchfulness   can   avert
some natural causes.

IOR such a slight thing as being defeated in the
house of deputies by a margin of three votes,
Premier Painlcve resigned from the government of
France forthwith. He has failed, apparently, to
gain the secret which Premier Mackenzie King has
of continuing to hold office, though not heading the
largest group in parliament, and defeated personally at thc polls, along with half of his cabinet. Thc
publication of a monograph from the pen of thc
Canadian premier on the subject of " How
to Hold Office, Though Defeated," would perhaps
open a new line of thought to European statesmen,
o whom such a course apparently has never suggested itself. An analysis of the votes cast in thc
Dominion election not only shows the Liberals as
far behind the Conservatives in the number of votes
cast, but also shown the latter well clear of the total votes cast for all other parties and factions. This
destroys the last vestige of pretence for the Liberal
party to be meeting parliament as the governing
body of the country.
********************
Who Did the People Vote For?
Before Pmiiict- Mackenzie King decided to cling to office for
another session, it would have been well for him to have studied the
figures furnished by the ofiiee of the chief electoral officer, wherein
nre tabulated lhe vote of the rcspctive parties by provinces.    If
there is nny question in the minds of anyone whether the people
voted for n change of government or not, it is furnished in these
figures.    Particularly illuminating are   the   returns   for   Quebec,
where only four Conservatives found seats, and in Saskatchewan,
where no Conservatives were elected at all.     Results of the voting   _
are now officially reported for 208 of the 245 seats in the house of   T
commons.    The distribution of the 37 scats still to report the figures   jj
of the voting officially arc as follows:
Quebec, '11; Ontario, 1; Manitoba, 2; Saskatchewan, 4; Alberta, 5; British Columbia, 3, Yukon, 1.
Of tho 20S seats declared, the following is the official vote:

A PROGRESSIVE REMNANT
The passing of the Progressive party as a force
in Canadian politics is foreshadowed in the result of the
elections just held. In the last Parliament, with a representation at Ottawa of 66 members, it constituted
the second largest group in the commons. In the next
House it seems probable that its membership will have
shrunk to 20, a reduction in strength of more than two-
thirds. In Ontario it was virtually wiped out, and in
every Western Province, where its influence wag presumed to be irresistable, it lost heavily to the older
parties.
Shorn and rejected as it has been in so many of
its strongholds, its prestige in the Dominion has suffered
a blow fatal in a large measure, to its usefulness as a

was held at the Y.M.C.A. rooms, this
being- an adjourned meeting from the
week previous. After considerable
discussion had taken place on several
points in which representatives from
various clubs in tlie ladies' league
took part, it was finally decided, as
being in the best interests of all, that
the dissolution of the ladies' league
take plaee, and that the clubs belonging thereto affiliate themselves with
the Cranbrook city league, the officers of which were appointed host
week. The addition of the two
ladies' clubs will add two members
from each club to that directorate,

found later to be incorrect. No one

Thc accident took place at 12.30

I Mr. George Warren has sold his
pretty little bungalow, situated near
the school house in Yuhk to Mr. Stow-
1 art, of the local C.P.R. Mill staff. Mr.
; Warren intends to build a new house
for himself on some other property
1 he owns in the same locality.
| Henry Matson, of the Yuhk Auto
Supply, has had his young sister from
Jutfray staying with him for the past
week.
An enjoyable whist party was held
in the Mill Hall, Yuhk, lust Saturday
evening by the Ladies' Guild.
Mrs. Edwards, of Yahk, and Mrs.
Carl Anderson, of Guatfell, were
hostesses at their respective homes
last Saturday evening.
Quite a number of Yahk  people
took in the dance at Saunders' Halt,
I Eastport, last Saturday evonlng, und
1 from all reports, it was thoroughly
enjoyed by ull present.
Mr. II. Sawyer, of Kingsgate, has
now sold out his property holdings in
Kingsgate to Mr, R. P, Johnson, who
| is already an extensive property own-
■ or there.
| A large dance will be held at the
I Mill Hull, Yahk, next Saturday night,
in aid of the local basketball team.
Thc music will be supplied by "Fob-
■ ters' Orchestra." It iy hoped that
I there will be a large attendance, as
there is very little for the young
(men and women to do during the
coming winter months, and if a basketball team can be formed by each,
some good, elean sport for all will
be the result, which will greatly help
1 pass the winter through, so let every-
] one join in making this dance a -social and financial success.
| Mr. Murral Olson, recently of the
. C.P.R. staff at Kingsgate, has been
; successful in passing his examination
for the post of customs ofllcer at
Kingsgate, and will now take up his
duties there as such from the beginning of this woek. Mr. Olson is
an advocate of clean sport, being no
mean exponent of the art of boxing
himself, as will be remembered by
thc Eastport, Kingsgate and Yahk
fans who saw him in action at thc
Mill Hall, Yahk, not very long ago.
These fans now wish Mr. Olson all
possible success in his new duties,
Constable Sharpe of Yahk was a
visitor to Nelson and Cranbrook last
week.
Inspector Field, R.C.M.P., of Fernie, paid a visit of inspection to the
R.C.M.P. detachment ut Kingsgate,
which is in charge of Corp. Crump,
Miss Miller and Mr. Martin were
visitors to Mrs. Edwards, of Yahk,
over the week-end.
Bill Woodhouse, of Yahk, was fortunate in getting a very fine specimen of the deer family last Sunday,
when he brought down a five point
buck, which was later shipped to his
relatives in Fernie. Mr. Gus Johnson of Yahk was also successful in
gcttilfg a buck last Sunday.
■JJrs. and Miss Matson, late of Jaffray, and at present visiting Henry
Matson, of the Yahk Auto Supply
Garage, left on Monday to spend a
few days at Spokane.
Mrs. Patinal, of Yahk, and her son
were visitors to Cranbrook on Saturday.
Miss Barr was a visitor to camp
three last week.
All freight trains passing through
Yahk from the east during the past
week have had anywhere from two
or three to twenty men on, that left
from different parts of B.C. and the
United States in the early summer
to take part in the harvesting work
in the east, but owing to the cold
and wet summer the east had, these
men are now returning for the most
part broke, and making their way
the best they can to their respective
homes.
Mr. Jack Taylor, road superintendent, was a visitor to Yahk on Saturday.
The fifty dollars forfeit money left
by Mr. Lewis, of Otis Orchards, Spokane, with a resident of Yahk, as
mentioned in the last issue of the
Cranbrook Herald, was evidently not
posted in vain, as a telegram has been
received from Bill Root, of Athol,
Idaho, weight 190 pounds, stating
that he will meet Nels Jepson, weight
170 pounds, of Yahk, at the Mill Hall
next Friday evening, Nov. 27th, in
a finish "Catch as Catch Can" wrestling match. There has been a very
substantial side bet put up by these
two wrestlers as to the outcome of
tho match on Friday night. Any fan
that fails to see this match will surely be sorry, as, without a doubt,, it
will be the biggest and best wrestling
match ever held in the Cranbrook
district. The preliminaries alone
should be worth the price of admission—one dollar, plus tax. Roycc
Thompson and Frank Allen, jnr., who
put up such a fine bout at thc last
match, will again go on, a suitable
prize being put up. It is also reported that Bert Stapleton and Mc
Brogan will meet in a three two-minute round boxing contest, as well as
Frank Anselmo, of Yahk, and Al
Fredricks, of Eastport. It is expected that Mr. George Anton, the well
known wrestling promoter of Cranbrook, and a number of fans from

Constable Geo. Meade took a man
to the mental hospital in New Westminster this week. Speaking about
thc insane reminds us that the provincial government are investigating
the whole subject of the Insane at the
present time. It is a rather delicate
question to raise, but are the people
of this district aware that East Kootenny sends more inmates to the asylum in New Westminster than any
other district In the province. Is it
a question of altitude or what?—

Peacock copper, the extent of
which is not known, has been revealed on Observation Mountain, that

Observation Mountain, Mr. Kitchen
stumbled over an old root which overturned. Upon investigation he found
a rich ore vein which revealed peacock copper. Already, Mr. Kitchen
has stripped the ledge for 30 feet.

the court of extradition in the case
of Cannonball Baker, who was wanted badly in Vancouver on a charge of
murder. Baker was pleading for an
adjournment and the judge, who was

ho did not waive extradition and go

Baker gasped for a moment and suid;
"Damn it, you know, you don't seem
tu have much knowledge of Canadian
juries." Inspector Bill had to smile
quietly tu himself.—Fornlo Free

Tlie great increase in the number
of Insane in the mental hospitals of
thc Province is causing much concern in official circles. Almost every
year additions to the hospitals have
to be provided for by the Legislature,
and the annual cost of caring for the
insane has risen to approximately
$750,000. The Provincial Secretary
will shortly propose that a special
committee of the House be appointed
to consider the whole subject, lt h
stated that in a single year as many
inmates are admitted to these hospitals as were in them twenty years
ago, that (iG per cent, of the inmates
are not Canadian born and that !»0
per cent, arc not natives of this
Province.
The report of the Liquor Control
Board for tho year ended March 81,
presented to the Legislature by the
Attorney- General, shows that the
sales for the twelve months amounted to $11,409,1 lfi, the gross profits
to $3,402, 1)31, operating expenses
to $428,979, and the municipal
share of the net profits to $H07,71G.
Law enforcement and secret service
expnses totalled $97,434, of which
$43,911 was charged to the municipalities. Subsequent returns for
five months up to August 31 show
that the consumption of wines und
liquors was 51.9 per cent, and of
beer 48.1 per cent., while for the
some five months last year thc consumption was 64.8 per cent, of
wines and liquors und 35.2 per cent,
of beer.
Thc merchants of the city in particular are interested in thc announcement received from the Const
to the effect that it is likely that the
provincial government will this session enact legislation to abolish the
personal property tax. There have
been many complaints as to the application of this tax, it being chnrged that thc merchant who paid on
his personal property instead of income was liable year after year
to pay on some of his stock that
wag carried over. It is proposed to
substitute a tax of one-tenth of one
per cent, on gross sales, to be turned
a turnover tax. No doubt this will
have its drawbacks also, but there
is one good feature in regard to it,
namely, that it will be more easily
arrived at than the former tax.

home. Fowler is happy and excited,
for he expects to find that he has become a father. A babe is placed in
his arms as he enters, but his happi-
neBS changes to sorrow when he
learns that the youngster has come
into the world at the cost of his mother's life.
CHAPTER  III—Continued
From that stuffy parlor into the
unsheltered outer night was only a
step, but it carried Bob into a different world. He was glad to get out,
thought and to offer his bore head
and naked cheeks to the cleansing
vigor of the elements. Out there,
somehow, the tragedy did not seem
so concentrated and poignant; and
there was no walls to reflect the
sounds and the sights of grief.
Bob came to a pause on the blob-
by patch of wet grass that was, in
more seemly times, a front lawn. It
was difficult to discern anything
through the veil of rain, but finally
he made out Jim a few rods away
and hurried after him.
In his intense personalization of
the situation it never occurred to
him that the sound of footsteps could
not be heard above the storm; so,
involuntarily, he trod on tiptoe. It
was an unnecessary nicety, though;
it would have been unnecessary even
though they walked with iron shod
shoes in marble tombs, for Jim Fowler was dead to the sounds of reality,
of the storm and the world. He plod-
ed stiffly, chin in, shoulders square
and arms by his sides as a corpse
might walk—with jerky, cataleptic
steps.
Bob clutched up his threadbare
coat close to his throat as he followed, for the rain slapping into his face
and dribbling down inside his clothes
chilled him through and through. He
was bareheaded; he had left his cap
where he had dropped it—on a chair
in the Fowler parlor.
Bob glanced back once in the direction of the little cottage. Thc
only sign of its existence was a pale
yellow spot of light glimmering
through the cascading windowpune.
That bit of light meant interior comfort and warmth, and the hobo choked with selfish resentfulnes3 at the
spiteful fate that did not stop at
wrecking a strange home in order
to make him uncomfortable. At
least, 50 it seemed to him, for he
had acquired a personal injury com-!
plex. Life was always closing doors
in his face.
What silly trick of Fate was it
that had turned him, outcast and
pariah, to participation in an affair
of human experience that was none
of his business? What mechanism
of social intercourse was it that kept
his feet plodding after a stranger he
had not known by sight or word until a brief hour before? Bob stopped in his tracks. It struck him as
sheer nonsense that he should be
following this man, like a derelict
guardian angel.
The hobo philosophy of Potts and
of Spike and their kind occurred to
him: "What the hell difference does
anything make?" What difference,
indeed? The thing he wanted most
now was an obscure but sheltered
nook in thc freight yards; a barrel
or a shanty, preferably near the vicarious heat of the locomotives'
dumping pit, safe from trainmen's
sticks and boots.
Bob, with a shrug, turned and set
his face to retrace his steps toward
the widespread diffusion of light
against thc night sky on lower land
to the east that marked the Crater
('ity railroad yards. There was the
pale of him and his social kind on
nights like this; he had no business
wnndcring from it.
Now with his mind made up and
his steps already retracing their way,
Bob glanced back with uneasy curiosity after thc man who had tried to
befriend him. But he experienced
no sense of gratitude; only dogs felt
gratitude.
Jim seemed to be moving along a
sort of ridge some distance above
Bob, and the steady play of lightning against the unobstructed sky
beyond the ridgeline served to keep
hia stiffly moving figure in almost
constant silhouette. As Bob watched he saw Jim in his trance walk
starkly into a tree, stagger back, and
fall heavily.
"The poor devil/' he muttered,
"he hasn't any idea of what he's doing or where he's going. I've got
to watch him or he will be killed!"
Involuntarily Bob changed his irresolute course once more and hurried along at a penitent dogtrot to
regain the ground he had lost, to
pick Jim up. Before Bob could
reach him, however, Jim arose and
resumed his Golgothic way. Bob
foil into step behind him, as boforc,
and admitted to himself with the
usual sheepish confusion of an in-
j cinsistcnt cynic that it was not doglike gratitude, but rather a genuine
person.il   interest   and   liking   that
1 made him "his brother's keeper."
Their way led sharply upwards
now, along the Beam of the ridge;
and  Bob. winded and laboring with
[wearied legs and feet, marvelled at.
the inward powers of emotional
strength that were keeping the slender young mail clerk forging ahead
with no visible slackening of pace or
poise. Bob began to fear for Jim
mightily; tins strained restriction of
a flood of grief behind a daai of
dazed mentality was bound to result
in a fearful cracking of body and
soul and mind that might sweep him
to death, or worse—Insanity.
Bob was unfamiliar with the topography of the local countryside, bu(
its general conformation hero led
him to suspect a cliff, after the characteristics of thc surrounding territory with which he had become fa-
Bob law Jim  walk starkly into a
tree, stagger back, and fall heavily
miliar in his short life as a tramp.
So he moved up to within arm's
length of Jim, and strove to pierce
the stormy gloom ahead for signs of
a drop. It came with a suddenness
that nearly fooled him despite his
alertness; a gash of deeper blackness
in the night underfoot. Bob cried
out and plucked Jim back from the
edge.
Still Jim was not consciously aware
of Bob's presence. Ho glanced with
startled yet unseeing eyes toward
him, then unwittingly obeyed the new
course, away from immediate danger,
into which Bob gently turned him.
Thus, through the night these two
men wandered through the barren
and storm whipped fields on the
shoulders of the supine hills that
stretched back to Crater City; Bob
following without question the uncanny will of the other except at
times when it was necessary to guide
him out of danger. And while he
climbed nnd descended, trod and
stumbled on his weary way Bob felt
a glow of spiritual exultation displacing the chill in his veins and confounding the weariness in his body,
Bob wns not of a religious turn
of mind, but he had been grounded
in Biblical fundamentals, and now
when the service of human brotherhood was lifting him beyond himself
he thrilled to a resemblance of this.
bereaved lover, walking his life away
for his solitary love, to that Young
Man who had endured a Passion and
Death for all.
These desolate hills of ancient lava
were truly Jim Fowler's Gethsemane;
his misery was, in fundamentals 'f
not in details, a replica of that Storied Agony. Like the Apostles of
old, Bob had come to watch; but unlike them, he did not go to sleep. In
him was born, as the night wore on
and the physical pain of watching
and following became so acute thnt
he could scarcely move, a realization
of the true significance of that An
cicnt Sacrifice.

NOTES
(Special to The Herald)
lnvermere, B.C. Nov. 21.—The
fourth annual Pacific Northwest potato show took place in the Chamber
of Commerce Building, Spokane. It
opened on November J 7th and closed on the 20th. Members of thc
Windermere Dictrict Potato Growers'
Association have sent five exhibits
to this show. Messrs, R. R. Bruce,
of lnvermere, P, Jones of Wilmer,
and J. W. Morland and Windermere
ale exhbiitors.
British Columbia is having its
fourth annual Dotato show at New
Westminster, Nov, 25th to 29th.
Eight members of the Windermere
District Potato Growers' Association
and two other growers have sent ex-,
hi bits, making a total of 51 entries.
The varieties of thc potatoes that are
being exhibited are the Netted Gem,
Wee McGregor, Rural Russet, Sir
Walter Raleigh, Early Ohio, Early
Rose and Early White Prize.
One little girl in the- community
wns made happy recently when she
was presented with her cheque for
prizes won nt the late Fall Fair.
ThiH girl is Elizabeth Walker, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur
.1. Walker, of Ajax ranch. Elizabeth's tastes run to agriculture, especially the animal branches. Early
this spring she secured two piglets
from her eldest brother and gave
them her exclusive und tender care.
When the Fall Fair time came she
entered the two porkers in every
class that she could, and being quite
within the age, joined the boys' nnd
girls' pig club. Her pig won her three
firsts in the classes in which she entered them and won for the first in
the pig club. As a consequence of
this she received from thc association n cheque for twenty dollars.
She later will receive one of the province's contributions to the fund,
and she stands a chance for heading
tho province in the boyB' and girls'
competition, which would bring her
more. She capped the climax by
selling tho young sow for breeding
purposes as a prize winner, getting
a good price for it, and the pig went
to the butcher as prime pork. Already she is formulating her plans
for what she is going to do in the
pig line in 1920.
Reginald Eastlake, one of the
figures in the late bonk robbery at

this latter having been enlarged and

An athletic association for the upbuilding of winter sport in the Lake
Windermere district was formed this
past week, and is receiving the hearty
support of all lovers of clean sport.
It is the intention to hold semi-weekly
contests in the David Thompson Memorial Hall, a building which affords
a large clear floor space with capacious galleries around for any who are
simply spectators. The interest for
the present is going to centre in
badminton, boxing, indoor basket
ball and baseball, coupled with athletic exercises. Mr. T. W. Lee from
the prairie province of Alberta ha&
been engaged as physical instructor.
Later on it is intended to broaden
the activities of the body to take in
skiing, ski-joring, tobogganing and
snow shoeing. Mr. A. McRobb is
President; W. H. Tompkins, Vice-
Pres.; C. E. Chester, Secretary; A.
Ashworth, Treasurer. The opening
night showed an attendance of thirty-
five young men keen to take their
part. It is said there is a nucleus

THE MANITOBA OF
TODAY SHOWN IN
GOVERNMENT BOOKLET
Knowing one's own country is one
of the first principles of geography,
and this is particularly relevant in
a country such as Canada. Here
nearly everything is new, and continual change is taking place. In the
western provinces Canada is making
history—she is establishing records
in development never heretofore
heard of, and the prospects would appear to be that what has been done
is but the beginning of an era of
progress. In order to keep tht- pub
lie informed on the advances being
made, the Natural Resources Intelli
gence Service of the Department of
the Interior has issued a number of
handbooks on the several province:
One of these, on Manitoba, has just
been fully revised, and is available
to adult readers on request. This
report is one of great value to those
already resident in the west, as well
as to prospective settlers; it gives a
true picture of the province as it is,
without any attempt at exaggeration.
Readers may therefore feel safe
in sending copies to their friends
overseas or across the line who may
desire information on Manitoba as it
is today. Thc Natural Resources
Intelligence Service of thc Department of the Interior will mail copies
to prospective settlers at the request
of our readers.

Among the more recent newcomers to Cranbrook is Dr, F. W. Gallagher, late of Alliance, Alberta, who
arrived last week to take over the
practice of Dr. C. W. Huffman in
Chiropractic. Dr. Gallagher has secured offices in the McCreery block
and is expecting his equipment any
day, when he will be in a position to
give the very best service that chiropractic affords. Dr. Huffman, who
has been the forerunner of the practice of chiropractic in Cranbrook, is
retiring to apply himself exclusively
to his Kimberley practice.

Friday last Mr. V. Paulsen, of the
Kootenay Garage, returned to the
city after a week spent in Winnipeg
on business. While in the prairie
city Mr. Paulsen had the opportunity
of seeing the whole aeries of the New
Oakland cars, aa a result of which he
is firmly of the opinion that in this
new production of the General Motors', perfection has certainly been
reached. The phenomenal sales that
the new Oakland haa had is an indication aa to the manner in which it
haa been received by the buying public. Mr. Paulsen will have a five
passenger sedan on display at the
garage shortly, when an opportunity
will be given to inspect the latest in
car manufacture.
