Rinks From Kimberley, Concentrator and Bull River
Engage in Bonspiei
BANQUET AND"SPEECHES
Marking another mile post in tho
history of curling in Cranbrook, the
opening of tlio new Cranbrook curling rink on Wednesday evening last
was a huge ailCCeflS, The date of tho
opening had been sot for some time
and all the necessary preparations
made. Everything went well until
within a week of the appointed time,
when apparently the goddess of the
weather got peeved at the curlers
nnd shot along a brand of weather
that made some of the Scotchmen
think of pawning their brooms and
slant's and getting out their golf
outfits, to decide the bonspiei on the
links instead of the rink. As a matter of fact Sunday last saw a number
of golfers enjoying the day on the
links. However, fate decreed apparently that the Bonspiei should
take place, and Monday morning saw
the places that were nearly Bwim-
ming pools on Sunday evening, solid
sheets of ice. Going from one extreme to the other, Miss Weatherman
got about as wide of the broom as
she was narrow before and made it
cold with o vengeance.
It is well known that for a number of years the curlers have had
no sure abiding place, and this year,
faced with a proposition of building
or of having no place to play, they
got busy and within a short time a
permanent home was assured.
For the anticipated big event,
rinks were expected from Fernie,
Bull River and Kimberley, but on
account of the weather the Fernie
rinks were not able to make the trip,
leaving the draws between five Cranbrook rinks, three from Kimberley
and two from Bull River,
The ice wns in excellent condition
for the occasion and five very interesting games were played.
Possibly, as Bob Crerar put it after the games, thc visitors' bump of
courtesy had expanded so much that
the home teams were all permitted to
win the first games played in a reg-
ular bonspiei in their rink, or the
Cranbrook curlers were masters of
the game for the evening nt least.
Perhaps the parade of the curlers
behind the skirling pipes of Alan
Graham was the most striking item
that marked the opening of the rink.
It wns a grnnd sight to see so many
curlers in the parade around the
rink.

SANTA CLAUS DUE FOR
MANY STOPS IN CITY
IN NEXT FEW DAYS
This is the season of the year when
Father Christmas nmkos an advance
appearance at various places where
preparations are made to properly
receive him. On Thursday evening
this week, Santa Claus was at the
Fitik Mercantile store, and it was not
thought that the cold weather would
prevent a big crowd of kiddies from
being on hand tn welcome him. Next
week lie will make the round of the
Sunday schools, being scheduled to
appear at no less than three places
on Tuesduy evening, when the Bap-
tilt, Methodist nnd Presbyterian
Sunday schools are to hold their annual t'liristnias tree celebrations and
entertainments.

the G.W.V.A. is to take place on

in are requested to be on hand without fail.

VETERANS BUSY WITH
YEAR-END PROGRAM
OF VARIED ACTIVITIES
This is a busy season with the G.
W. V. A., with the end of their year,
ond the Christmas activities now in
full swing. This week the Christmas
turkey shoot has been going strong
at the club, and has been patronized
extensively by those who figure they
can hit a target. On December 27,
the annual meeting und banquet is
being held, when the customary good
time is looked for. On the Tuesday
following the annual Christmas tree
for the children of veterans is being
held, when an effort is made to remember as many of the kiddies as
possible, whose relatives sow servic
in the great war. The G. W. V. A.
is suffering another loss from its active officers, in the removal from the
district shortly of Mr. D. S. Rashleigh, who has been acting as secretary. He has been thorough and extremely conscientious in his work,
nnd hns put a great deal of time awl
energy into his work, with thc result
that the r.ffa:^ of the G. W. V. A.
were probably never in better shape
than at present. Naturally the veterans keenly regret bis relinquishing
his connection with their association.
The turkey shoot which the members of the G. W. V, A. have been
conducting, is being very largely
atended, and many birds have been
won. The high scores, for which
prizes are bring given nre held by
Jack Martin and Jack Taylor.
Small Fire At

I Had it happened a few hours later,
■when the outbreak might not have

I fire at the Central scliool on Wed-
1 nesday afternoon might have been a
' great deal more serious. As it was,
. thc damage will probably not amount
' to more than $l!0. Late in the afternoon after school had been dis
missed, Miss F. Paul noticed the casing around the door of the waste pa-
j per chute near her door was burn-
i ing. and hurriedly gave the alarm.
■ Mr. Logan was soon on the scene and
in a very little while had the blaze

Mr. Harvey, using the school fire

TWO PROGRAMS
At a meeting of the Burns Club,
held in the Y.M.C.A. on Wednesday,
December 17th, J. R, Mackey in the
chair, D. Halcrow and S. Dalziel
were appointed vice-presidents, ami
J, R. Mackey awl I. Hannah, president
and secretary for tlie ensuing six
months. It was decided to hold a
Burns Night on January 7th, at S

is being arranged nnd o pleasant time

doors which will have to be replaced
and from the effects of the water
from the hose. It is expected that after the insurance has been readjusted
the wooden doors on the chute will
be replaced with steel doors, thus
making the chute entirely fireproof.
How the fire originated i;; not known
at present, as it is stated that no
paper had been put down the chute
that day.. Had the outbreak not
been noticed just when it was, it is
possible that the conflagration of a
few years ago would have been duplicated, tlio ugh with the modern,
fireproof building now in use, it is
hard to conceive that a fire could
make complete destruction of the
place, unless it got an overwhelmingly good start.

SEVERE WEATHER
CAUSES RAIL AND WIRE
TROUBLE THIS WEEK
Unprecedented Drop In Temperatures on Monday
Causes Interruptions
Railroad men of many years experience do not recall such a sudden
drop in the tenipernture as took
place early this week, the change to
wintry conditions being general all
over   the   west. A     comfortable
temperature of about fifty degrees
gave place in a very short time to
the uncomfortable one of between
twenty-five and thirty below zero/
Along with il came a blizzard and
a very high wind which did much da-
mage to telephone and telegraph li-!
nes. Monday's westbound train
got the full force of the blizzard on
the prairies and did not reach here
till very late in the evening. Three
engines were required to get into
Crows Nest, and it had a double header on when it pulled in here that
evening. Meantime the eastbound
train had encountered much snow
and many fallen trees, the train crew
having to requisition axes and
saws to clear the track. Telegraph
wires went down in the blizzard, and
also long distance telephone connections east and west.
On Tuesday the snow had ceased,
and the trains were gradually picking up time again and they are now
almost back on schedule.
On Tuesday it was reported in thej
city that an Indian from near Ward- j
ner had lost his wife and child in the
storm. He had been absent from
his tepee, only to find it had gone;
down in the storm, leaving no trace
of the occupants, who at that time
could not be found.
LOCAL SCOUTS REGRET TRAGIC DEATH
OF FERNIE BOY
The tragic death of Thomas Pu-
key at Fernie last week removed one
of the nmst promising boys who have
been connected with the scout movement there. He was caught in some
way between two cars nt the Coal
Creek mines, a car coming upon him
unawares from behind, apparently,
though there were no witnesses to explain the mishap. He suffered severe injuries in the abdomen, which
were the cause of his death. It is a
tragic coincidence that the boy's father was also killed in the mines a
few years ago.
The funeral took place at Fernie
on Monday, and a beautiful wreath
war. sent as a mark of sympathy
from tho local scouts to the mother
of tho deceased scout The District
Commissioner also notified the provincial headquarters, and it ia expected they would make some recognition of the untimely pussing of a
thoroughly good scout at their meeting shortly
Contracts For
Fentie Mines
New Wage Arrangement May
Result in Opening Up
of Mines
SECURE B!G CONTRACTS
During th,. ■ • , A ..., , events
at Fernie have moved rapidly in the
direction of wl.;.:  | |j ,. ,, aoiu.
tion of the difficulties o»er wage
scales between tin- U. M. W. A. and
the coal company, that finally led
to the posting of a notice a inouncing
'he closing of the Coal Creek mines
indefinitely. The signlficj nt feature of the settlement that now seems
in sight is that : ti ea - tho virtual
elimination of the U M W. A. from
Fernie and Coal Creek, replacing it
by a local union organization, and
the negotiation of a wage scale between the minqrs direct and the conl
company, based frankly on what the
company felt it could afford to pay
and still remain in business
Receiving an assurance from the
men that this would be acceptable to
them, W. K. Wilson, president of the
coai company. I ft immediately for
the middle west m an effort to negotiate some long term contracts of
sufficient magnitude to enable the mines to re-open, if only on a part-time
basis. In this .Mr. Wilson was successful, returning on Tuesday of this
week to Fernie with at least two contracts in hand, one for twenty thousand tons a week and another for ten
thousand tons a week, stretching over a period of years. This news was
received with much jubilation in Fernie, and it is expected will enable the
company to re-open the mines on a
four days a week basis, before long.
and still remain in business.
This is a matter for much congratulation in the Fast Kootenay, as
there is no doubt that a further long
period of inactivity at Fernie would
have made itself felt throughout the
district.
Concerning the move of the men
in breaking away from the U.M.W.
of A., the Fernie Free Press says:
The action of the miners of Fernie
in breaking away from the U.M.W.
of A., and forming a new organization in an effort to negotiate an
agreement with the Crow's Hest Pass
Coal Co. whereby the company would
be able to compete in the coal markets of the west with other companies, deserves the deepest commendation of the citizens of this town.
These men, who have suffered long
and bitterly at tht hands of the CM.
W. of A.j have shown that they still
have some good hard horse sense nnd
are prepared to get down to brass
tacks and talk business. Existing
conditions made it absolutely impossible for this company to carry on at
the old scale and Sherman and his
crowd refused to recognize this condition, but the men have finally taken the matter in their own hands and
with the assistance of W. R, Wilson
will doubtless find a solution to the
whole trouble.
The business men of Fernie owe
every consideration to these men
who have been brave enough to come
out in the open against the U.M.W.
of A. They have made it possible by
a huge sacrifice for Fernie coal to
meet any honest competition in the
open market, and it will not be long
before our mines are operating again
at a greater capacity than ever. It
may take a little time to secure a
market but W. It. Wilson will never
rest until Coal Creek mines are operating six days a week.
Veteran   Hotelman   of   Fernie   Dim
Death again cal!i-*l "t c of our well
known old timers In the person of
Wm. Mills, proprietor "f th*- Kings
Hotel, on Sunday lait, after s short
illness from pneumonia. Deceased,
who has been a resident of Fernie
for nearly twenty-five years, came
here from Moyie. where he was m
quarU miner and was famous
throughout the mining camps of the
west as one of the best rock men who
ever handled a drill. Wherever a
rock drilling contest was held Billy
was always a champion. During his
many years residence in Fernie he
had made a host of friends, who were
deeply grieved and shocked to learn
of his sudden death. He leaves a
widow, two daughters and a son to
mourn his loss. The funeral will
take place from the family residence,
Victoria Avenue, on Sunday at 2
p.m., to the United Church, where
Rev, William Burns will conduct thc
service.—Fernie Free  Press.

Throughout the length nnd breadth
of the land, wherever Elks are found
they are generally busy at this time
of the year, and the "Brother Bill's
of Kimberley are apparently no exception. They have been plying
their efforts lately to see that the
kiddies are assured of a good time
this Christmas. For this purpose on
Monday evening last they staged a
smoker, which went over with a real
hang, everybody agreeing that it was
a grand success. The program consisted of a series of wrestling and
boxing matches, which were all
thoroughly interesting, A fine list
of songs and instrumental solos and
quartette was given, songs being rendered by Messrs. Brown, Martin and
Derbyshire, while violin solos by
some (tf the boys were much enjoyed. The orchestra was in fine fettle and their efforts brough forth
much favorable comment. With the
addition of all kinds of good smokes
no trouble was experienced in having a good time. The chairmanship
was in the capable hands of Air. Bob
Crerar, the Exalted Ruler of thc local lodge. The meeting was pleased
to listen to an address by Air. Kilgour.
The proceeds of the entertainment
will go towards the expenses of the
entertainment and picture show for
the kiddies Christmas week.

THE KIMBERLEY
JUNIOR CHALLENGE
Mr. \V. JI. Harris, on behalf of thc
Cranbrnok Hockey Association, has
accepted the challenge of the Kim-
berley Juniors, made last week thru
the columns of the Kimberley Herald, und is prepared to send up a
team ns soon as a game can be arranged. In accepting the challenge,
Mr. Harris states that the matter of
showing birth certificates to prove
that all of his players are under age
will be the very least of his troubles.
He understands that there is going
to be a very stiff enforcement of
the curfew law and he is afraid ihis
will debar most of his youngsters
from playing. He hopes, however,
to get special permits for them.

CURLERS REPRESENTED
AT OPENING OF NEW
CRANBROOK RINK
Kimberley was represented at the
opening of the new Cranbrook Curling rink on Wednesday night last
by three rinks, two from the Kimberley Curling Club nnd one from the
new Concentrator organization making up the party that journeyed to
Crnnbrook to celebrate with the boys
of the junction town at the initial
bonspiei in their new rink. Possibly
it was as Douglas, of Bull River, put
it, in speaking at the banquet following thc spiel that through cour>
tesy to their hosts lhe three Kim
borley rinks, in common will) the two
other visiting rinks from Bull River,
cume home without any winH t
their credit. They had a good time
and considering the fact that it was
practically the first time that any of
them had curled this winter, (hey acquitted themselves well. R. Crerar,
on behalf of the Kimberley Club, extended an invitation to tho Cran
brook club to come up for a few
games on Saturday night. The following represented Kimberley: R. E.
Crerar, skip, Neil McKinnon, George
Griffith, S. C. Cook: E. James,.skip,
P. D. Murphy, A. J. Higgins, J.
Geigerich. Representing the Concentrator were J. McGowan, skip, H.
Bidder, Fred Jordan, Andy Gordon,
James lost to Ward, Crerar lost to
McLaren, McGowan lost to Cameron.
In the last two games it was anybody's game till the last rock was
thrown.
NEW RINK IS DULY
CHRISTENED
(Continued from Page One)
Following the parade tbe games
were on.     Ther.e resulted as follows
Ward, Cranbrook, beat James, of
Kimberley.
McLaren, Cranbrook, beat Crerar
of Kimberley.
Cameron, Cranbrook, bent McGowan, of the Concentrator.
Bowness, Cranbrook, beat P, Mc-
Grath of Bull River.
Morrison, Cranbrook, beat Douglas of Bull River.
With but one exception all were
closely contested games.
The visiting rinks were made up
as follows:
Bull River—1. P. McGrath, skip,
H. Heard, C. Nelson, W. Lindberg.
2.—Douglas, skip, O. Jostad, H.
Cockshutt, B. Luck.
Kimberley 1.—R. E. Crerar, skip,
Neil McKinnon, George Griffith, S.
J. Cook.
2.—E. James, skip, P. D, Murphy,
A. J. Higgins.
Concentrator—J. McGowan, skip,
H. Bidder, Fred Jordan and Andy
Gordon.
Following the games, about seventy took their places around the banquet tables which the manager of ihe
Pine Tree had prepared in one of the
rooms at the rink.
Dr. G. E. L. MacKinnon, president
of the Cranbrook Curling Club, occupied the chair, and first called upon the Cranbrook curlers to give
three cheers for the links from Bull
River, Kimberley and Concentrator,
He thought they were indebted to thc
visitors for coming to Cranbrook,
and making the opening spiel possible. For the visitors, Bob Crerar
proposed the toast to the Cranbrook
club. In response Dr, MacKinnon
said it had always been their ambi
tion to own a real rink, and apparently it was now an accomplished
fact. He mentioned the interest A
C. Bowness had taken in the building
of the new rink, and called upon
him to address the curlers.
Mr. Bowness related briefly the
difficulties encountered in the past
and how that they had profited by
experience, and had now a rink in a
place where its operation was sure
to be satisfactory. He referred to
thc loyal response made to the appeal for funds for the rink company.
He wns pleased to welcome the vis
itors and asked for a good turn out
for the first anunl meeting of th<
Selkirk Curling League which wan
soon to take place,
In recognition of the valuable
work done by Mr, Bowness he was
given three hearty cheers.
Speeches then followed by R. Crerar and Mr. McGowan of the Concentrator, both complimenting the Cranbrook rink and the curlers. Thc latter gave a brief account of thc starting of the new Concentrator Club
rink, with its present membership of
62.
The reply to the nice things that
the visitors had to say, the chairman
called upon A. Ward and W. F. Cameron for replies, the former expressing his admiration for the old game.
Mr. Cameron's reply showed the
fine position the acquisition of thc
new rink put Cranbrook in now they
could boast of a possible ten rinks
for a speil. He also referred to the
work of Mr. Bowness and Dr. MacKinnon in connection with the new
rink. The speech making of the evening was concluded by Mr, Douglas
of Bull River and Archie Corrie, both
paying their respects to thc Crnnbrook Club and Inviting them in return to their respective home towns.
The meeting concluded with thc
singing of "God Save the King."

YULETIDE   SHOPPING
THIS time is spoken of as "thc printers' harvest."
As a matter of fact it should no more bc regarded as the printer's harvest than the harvest of the
merchants generally. Due to thc fact that gift giving at this season of thc year is a general practice,
there is a popular knowledge that thc public at large
has a little more money to spend than usual, and the
merchants quite legitimately endeavor to use every
recognized channel of advertising to set before the
world at large the advantageous buying that can be
done at their respective stores.
If any merchants fail to receive a legitimatel
share of what extra business is going at this time of
the year, it is because they have not been awake to
the opportunities. People now, more than ever
since thc stringent days of the war, shop where they
are invited to shop. There would bc mighty little
mail order business done from Cranbrook, or anywhere this Christmas if the public were not subjected to a barrage of mail order literature from time
lo time. So thc merchant handling seasonable goods
whose business at Christmas time does not expand,
usually has himself to blame.
The Herald feels considerable satisfaction in the
fad that with new plant equipment it has been able
to handle a rush of business this season far easier
than with the limited facilities heretofore available.
To put out a Christmas shopping number such as
this week, representative of thc outstanding business interests of two closely allied towns, is no light
task, and only human limitations have this week curtailed the size of the paper to what it is. It was ori-;
giually intended to decorate the cover with seasonable designs in appropriate colors, the work all being
done as usual, here in thc office, but iu thc rush «jf,
other work, this feature, desirable though it would
have been, had perforce to bc postponed for a week,
when thc Merry Christmas edition of the Herald
will appear. >
*****
NOTE AND COMMENT
THE East Kootenay district will feel unbounded
satisfaction in thc news that the way has been
found whereby the Fernie mines may open, even if
on a limited scale at first. Negotiations between thc
operators and thc union failed to relieve the situation, but a short session of the employed and the
employer broke the deadlock, backed up by a spirit of conciliation on both sides, and a willingness to
meet thc other's viewpoint at least half way.
*****
CIVILIZATION comes high these days of cold
weather. In the neolithic times man was wise
enough to burrow underground for his home, making use of the warmth of kind Mother Earth in the
winter time. Civilized man dares the elements to
do their wont, and puts hit abode on the face of thc
earth when the cold mb can sweep all round it
as well as over it. Then he grumbles at his coal
bill—which the cave man never worried over. This
is the price man pays for the advancement of civilization.
*****
SOME cynically inclined individual, who obviously
cannot claim thc land of thc Maple Leaf as liis
birthplace, says he wants to know just what ihe
native sons did to thc country in the eaily days to
make the climate what it has been this week. But
even at thirty or thirty-five below, many people feel
that is preferable to the murky gloom tha! this week
enveloped old London in such a dense pall that even
trie bus driver.- lost their way.

AN IRONIC FAREWELL TO LOS ANGELES
In a glorious southern twilight our preat ship elides
out of the harbor antl turns silently, seaward bound.
Eastward, the lights and laughter of a city fade
away as a deepening mist, rose-grey in the golden sunset
of the Pacific falls like a silken curtain from the heavens.
Far in the west the ocean murmurs and we face the
breeze with heads high, filling our lungs with the tang
of tlie sen.   We are leaving California.
Goodbye, Los Angeles, I'm going home.
Goodbye, wondrous city of the south, where homes
are like tho temples of the gods—fit symbols of the diety
of wealth. Goodbye, happy hearts with waiting tears,
making merry in n world's great playground. Goodbye,
soft lights o'er thoughtless dancers in n shrine-like room
wliero hearts go mad. Goodbye, kind friends with misty
eyes waving a silent "bon voyage" from the pier.
Goodbye California, I'm going home.
I im going away from heat and desert dust that
they call "climate"—from blatant bores called boosters
—from dens of graft called summer resorts, and debauchery called pleasure.
I am sick of hearing stale romance called history
whining coon songs called music—of seeing strange,
ill-dyed creations called art, and feeling murder in my
heart at the sight of a 'teen age girl drinking booze with
a rogue.   Goodbye, California, I'm going home.
I want, to go to church again where people assemble
for worship and not to attend a performance. I want tn
•u where .Sunday is a holy day und not prostituted hy
amusement pirates. I want to live again where life is
sane and kind and true, where "nature's heart beats
strong among tho hills"—where God's own doorstep is
not all cluttered up with signboards, tourist camp litter,
flivvers and khaki breeches.*
I am leaving ft land of breathless haste, where residents do nothing in the time they save. A land of crowded Sunday theatres and empty churches—a land of
pitiful youth, godless parents and old-looking children.
A land of free divorce, unpunishable crime, and Hollywood.
I nm going to a land of quiet homes, respected laws
and sacred vows—where children have manners, and
mothers—soft voices, where fruit has flavor, flowers
have fragrance and women virtue. Where orderly people transact business in an orderly manner—not wasting
half their time in useless haste and the rest—undoing
costly errors.    Goodbye, California, I'm going home.
Goodbye to a land of new language in growth—of
split infinitives, slang and crossbred words. A land
where politicians have aims Instead of principles, where
exaggeration is called humor and people gape in bewilderment at Irony.
0, California, land of reversed ethics—where envy
is more to be desired than friendship—where hospitality
la a form of robbery—whero every human instinct has a
dollar mark before it—I Nd yon farewell I- Colonist.
STATEMENT BY PROMOTORS   OF CRANBROOK
OIL AND REFINING COMPANY, LIMITED
THE OPPORTUNITY:
Wc have entertained no doubt about llu- opportunity. The
excellent markets, high price for refinery products, transpor-
lation advantages and low freight uu crude from field lo
Cranbrook; these all contribute to the opportunity here. Witli
these items added to the well known margin between the cost
i-i a barrel of crude and the money obtainable from the pro-
dtn t- pn duo <1 by a good refinery from that barrel uf crude, no
one needs tu advertise the profits that a first cla^s refining
plan! will return to the shareholder.
lint before deciding to enter into thi- lucrative end of the
industry, we desired to make careful investigation into all the
factors present and future that would contribute to making the
enterprise the must profitable possible iu every way; to avoid
the mistakes some have made, to take advantage of even favorable condition.
We now know that the refining qualities of the crude produced iu Northern Montana are of the vt ;-_v hest fr' in the
standpoint of content of large percentage of the most easily
extracted and nio.^t readily marketable and profitable products
under improved standard refining processes, Wc now know
that comparatively simple refining processes will produce from
Northern .Montana crude high percentages of thr most wanted
commercial products. We are now assured that our crude
supplies will be unlimited so far as present aud anticipated future requirements are concerned, ihis being a first essential to
successful operation of a refinery.
Notwithstanding thc remarkable earnings shown by lhe
more or less abbreviated and timidly reticent financial statements of refining companies, and facts as to profits made by
them in the refining and marketing of crude petroleum as
brought out in Congressional investigation in the United
States, but we must also be assured of an organization personnel sufficiently experienced and qualified to undertake and competently handle all phases of the construction and operation of
a refinery of proper present capacity and future extensions
thereof, and the marketing of its products most profitably.
THE PLANT:
Again lieing fortunate, the Cranbrook Oil and Refining
Company. Limited, has secured an ideal site, with plenty nf
ground for thc present plant and its future extension unit by
unit. This site is situated on thc west side of Cranbrook
Street, running along the Canadian Pacific Railway main track.
The total tract consists of between four, aud four ami one half
acres. It is most favorably located iu all respects, and especially so for essentially important features of transportation,
plant operation and product distribution.
Thc first unit is to have a daily capacity of 200 to 300 barrels, and is so planned that additional units can be constructed
at any time without inconvenience, delay, alterations, or special cost lo rearrange operations. The very best materials and
construction will he used, and the plant will be of the standard
improved type throughout, first class in every particular, lo
produce in the most efficient and economical way top-grade
products of every kind.
Few people realize thc profits and possibilities of a compounding plant for lubricating oils and greases. The possibilities of a profitable lubricating oil husiness in this territory arc
great when we consider thc large mining industries, thc smelters, the lumber mills, the railroads, tractors, automobiles and
oilxr large users of lubricants. The field i.-, large and the
amount of business will depend almost entirely upon the energy aud ability entering into the Sales Department. We can
produce as good quality of lubricating oils and greases as any
on thc market. Th^ distribution can be handled with little
additional expense by the genera) Ki1*s department, and will
prove immensely profitable and a most desirable business, The
plant will be equipped to produce these products in addition to "
tlie main produce—Gasoline, Kerosene, Distillate, fuel oil, gas
oil. etc.. the lubricating plant to be added in thc future.
lt is expected that by constantly pushing construction the
plant will be completed and handling crude the latter part of
March.
CAPITALIZATION:
Though many advisors suggested a considerably larger
authorized capital, wc decided after careful figuring to stick to
our general policy of "THE SMALLEST PRACTICABLE
CAPITALIZATION and KEEP IT THAT WAY." Small
caitalizatiou, so long as adequate, means proportionately larger returns to shareholders. With assured sources of ample
crude supplies eliminating necessity for overly-large cash reserves for buying and storing crude far in advance of actual
month to month needs, wc have provided amply in the present
authorized capital for the cost of constructing the plant in
every particular to the last detail of stills, boilers, agitator,
run down tanks, storage tanks, tail house, condenser, loading
racks, pipe, pipe fittings, pumps, pump house, laboratory room,
office, garage for trucks, brick, lumber and labor—everything
essential, and a fair allowance for additional costs of extras
that could not bc anticipated; plus a reasonably substantial
working capital.

MILK
Recently there has boen considerable interest taken by a number of
citizens in the possibility of ti new
Industry in the form of an oil refinery coming to Cranbrook, and many
j aro still hoping that the plans of the
i promoters will carry and that the
I refinery will be an established business in thc city. Some have even
gone so far us to say that it is a
, matter for the Board of Trade to interest themselves in. Why is there
any Interest in this matter? Is the
chief interest to see that those who
put their money into the venture
get a good return on their investment, or that the consumer of the
products of the refinery shall got
them ut reduced rates? No, thoso
who advocate it aro not much interested st) much in cither of these possible results, as particularly that of
providing means of livelihood for
number of employees. Everyone admits that when raw materials ure
turned into finished products, wealth
is created. Bearing this in mind,
what Industries are thoro in Cranbrook to-day. One tlmt conies to
mind is the bakery business. In this
thore are about a dozen people employed to-day, as many, if not more
than the refinery would require.
Were one to suggest that the city
could get on just as well without the
labor of those twelve persons they
would bo ridiculed, as it would
amount to the same thing as closing
down a factory with that many
hands.
There are a number of citizens
who are helping, knowingly or otherwise, to close out this industry. Kach
week thore is shipped into Cranbrook
large quantities of bread from the
neighboring city of Lethbridge.
If this increases, as it may, Cranbrook bread money would all go to
Lethbridge and also thc employees
who at present have their livelihood
here. Elsewhere in this paper will
be found solicitations from two of
the bakers of this city for the patronage of their goods in preference
to that from tho city of Lethbridge.
The bakers have taken the only
course open lo them in this personal
appeal to tho public, as the latter
are directly responsible. The grocers who are handling Lethbridge
bread have been interviewed by the
bakers, and have stated that they
must hnve it, to sntisfy the demands
of thoir customers. That their argument is logical, no one will dispute
though if the outside bread were not
handled, it is doubtful whether much
if any of the trade that these stores
are enjoying from the Lethbridge
bread users would revert to the
three grocers who nt present refuse
to handle it. Be that as it rofly, the
remedy rests with the consumers who
feel they are entitled to get what
they like best.
It is doubtful, however, if there
are many people in Cranbrook who
are so partial to the one kind of
bread that they will allow their fancy to stand in the way of what in
reality is a public duty.
There are also very few people
who, if they could not get the outside broad, would not be satisfied
with that manufactured in their
own home town. That one can get
bread in the city which is as good as
any coming from elsewhere is the
opinion of many. Undoubtedly the
bread that is made in Cranbrook is
as good bread as anyone would want.

cheaper so the grocers will not object to the change.

300 Barrel Oil Refinery for Cranbrook
CAPITAL $100,000.oo
DIVIDED INTO 10,000 SHARES      $10.00 EACH
This Company can sell every gallon of Gasoline, Kerosene and Fuel Oil it can manufacture right here in and around Cranbrook. You know that the big profits of the oil
industry are derived from the Refining end. That is a recognized axiom of the oil industry.
This is the First Independent Refinery in British Columbia, and it is up to the people of
Cranbrook and the towns tributary to help in the building of this plant, and by so doing will
receive the big dividends.
The City of Cranbrook has been chosen as the point at which
tlie refinery is to be built, as it is the logical place for a refining plant
due to the freight charges from Montana to Cranbrook and also its
being the wholesale centre of the towns tributary.
It is proposed to construct a one unit plant with a daily capacity
of from 200 to 300 barrels of crude oil, and to have it so arranged
that additional units can be added at small expense as the demand
for the products increases.
The refinery will consist of office building, power house, pump
house, shop, receiving house, stills, tar cooler, condenser boxes and
stands, storage tanl-s and all necessary equipment to complete a modern and up-to-date plant.
An exceptional opportunity to invest your dollars in an oil refining company that will be conducted along SAFE, SANE, CONSERVATIVE LINES that should result in the largest possible dividends.
This is a Real Opportunity, and one that you cannot afford to
turn down.—Read all about it now, AND THEN ACT.
The Oil refinery is the "CREAM SEPARATOR" of the oil industry—it is the "STAMP MILL" that extracts the "GOLD" from low-
priced crude oil. Do you want to share the cream profits of the oil
business?
It is estimated that perhaps One Hundred Million Dollars and
maybe a great deal more v/ill be realized from refining alone of the
ci! that the present proven area of the Sunburst oil field will produce
during its total lifetime of production. It is our purpose to make for
the shareholders of the Cranbrook Oil & Refining Company, Limited,
as large a share as  possible of this great refining income.
Opportunity foreseen and taken advantage of in the right way
at the right time is the history in its inception of every great and useful business in Canada.
A SUPER PROFITABLE INDUSTRY
That the oil refining business is by far the
most profitable of all industrial enterprises is
a proven fact. To those who have never had
occasion to study the public reports, made by
operating refineries, the high profits made in
this business and enormous dividends paid
are unbelievable. However, it requires but
little investigation to convince anyone of this
fact.
Statistics show that the average refinery
operated continuously for twelve months, earned from 50 p.c. to 300 p.c. net profits per
annum, and many, under favorable operating
conditions have shown profits greater than
above. THESE EXCEEDINGLY LARGE PROFITS IN THE REFINING BUSINESS ARE THE
RULE, NOT THE EXCEPTION.
The plan of organization of the CRANBROOK OIL & REFINING COMPANY, LIMITED, and methods of financing has been
carefully worked out with the purpose of protecting and insuring the interests of the investor first and last.
The CRANBROOK OIL & REFINING COMPANY, LIMITED, shall be built on East Cran-
brook Street, south of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company's main track, and operations shall start in the building of the plant as
soon as the minimum subscription of $40,000
is secured.
THE CRANBROOK OIL & REFINING Co.,
Limited, faces a very promising future. Crude
oil will be supplied from the Montana field,
and the exceptionally favorable freight rate
to Cranbrook has been secured. The company
is capitalized at $100,000, which seems extremely low, but is deemed ample by the company's officers.    The stock is divided into

owner and garage man in Cranbrook should
be a co-partner in the Cranbrook Oil & Refining Company, Limited. The business men
in the city realized that the building of a plant
here means a big help to Cranbrook, and the
big profits that are made in the manufacturing
of oils will all be spent in and around Cranbrook, and everybody will have the big benefit of the results. Don't wait, but get in to-day.

Last week, Mrs. Prank Mann died
at the lately acquired home of her
husband, a comfortable farmstead a
little west of Wilmer. Mrs. Mann
had hut recently come from Bud-

ceremony they were deposited in the

A wedding of particular interest
to this community wns solemnized

home to their friends on Roxton
Farm, Keoma, after the New Year.
Mr. Kimpton is a native son, having
been born in the early days of C.P.

then an "important divisional point.
After a long period of -studying agriculture in this part under his father,
he moved to the prairies, where he

the school authorities and the department of Indian affairs, have
been progressing quite satisfactorily, twenty-four boys now taking part
in the class under the instruction of
F. G, Morris on Saturday mornings.

supplies being expected shortly from
the government. The boys have
