NOTE: The average circulation ol
the Herald I„r tlie past Ihe monllis
has been 8,817 per month. which
shows a substantial increase. It is
only fair to the advertisers, however,
lo sny that this materia! increase ol
the average was due to an increased
number ol papers issued durimt the
month ol October and distributed almost i-ntirelv in a systematic manner
ihrough lhc territory tributary to
i 'ranbrook.

Whatever happens Craubrook wants
Mayor Fink to continue at the head

What is the use of an election?
Cranbrook has just the kind of a
council that she needs. With J. P.
Kink as mayor, and Messrs. James
*,yan, V. Hyde Baker, Joseph Jack-
..im, Devere Hunt,. James Henderson
and George Johnson, as aldermen,
ihe affairs of the city are in sate
hands. Their record tor the past
year proves it.
The Lethhridgu Daily Herald cele-
hraled its first birthday on the Uth.
The Herald is a good daily newspaper and the people ol Lethbridge
are to be highly congratulated on
having sucn a paper in their city.
W. A. Buchanan, the managing director and editor, has worked all day
aud every day since the inception
ol tho paper lo give Lethbridge anl
the district publicity. In this he
has succeeded most admirably for
Ihere is no newspaper ln Alberta
lhat is more thoroughly read than the
I.ethliridgo Herald. To celebrate the
lirst birthday of the Herald, the
management of the paper tendered a
dinner to the staff at the Hub cafe.
Needless to say the dinner was a
.success ami the menu card was
something most unique. The first
puge gives a picture of the stall,
which consists of fourteen. Then
follows a number of witticisms and
then the menu itself, which needless
In say was the finest The Cranhrook Herald wishes the Lethbridge
lleralil many happy returns of the
day and trusts that it may long
boost Lethbridge.
The person who Is wise will do his
or her Christmas shopping early,
right now, in fact, and avoid the
annoyance of the rush at the last
moment. Hy so doing not only will
the advantage of the best selection
be had but the merchant has more
time to devote to thc customer in
advising and assisting in the selection of the goods desired. Another
thing the Herald would urge on the
Christmas shopper: Buy everything
you possibly can at home. The merchants of Cranbrook carry stocks
thai cannot be improved upon between Winnipeg and Vancouver and
-Anything that one can possibly want
ean be purchased from these mer-
elinnls who are citizens of tbe town
.md who bear the brunt of the taxation, which keeps the public institutions of the city goin*;. Therefore,
r you earn your living here, the
merchants of lhe city are entitled
tn your trade. If the money sent
ml of town f<»r Christmas shopping
was spent at home those spending it
mlghl reasonably expect to see it or
pari nf it again—hut   when     i*     is
HILL & COMPANY
HILL IS HERE
Do You Know What That Means ?
MR. W. D. HILL, of this Company, arrived from the
Coast the first of the week, and after taking a cursory
invoice of the stock, issued orders to mark everything down
to save labor at stock-taking two weeks hence. This order
means that the people of Cranbrook and vicinity will have
an opportunity for the next two weeks to buy
Dry Goods, Clothing, Shoes and
Gents' Furnishings
at prices never before prevailing in Cranbrook.    And these
goods are seasonable goods, modern in make, latest in designs
and of the best quality.   The cost price will be lost sight of.
To illustrate the reductions made, we might mention one
or two lines:
JOHN B.  STETSON HATS, all   sizes   and   colors,
Regular priee 44.50, now       $3,75
MEN'S COLLARS, regular price 25c, now       12-Jc
VIKING BRAND GOLD FLEECED UNDERWEAR,
Regular price 17.50, now     SS.90
Don't fail to look at the "REGAL" SHIRT of which we
have the exclusive sale in Cranbrook.
If you found a dollar in the street you would pick it up.
Here is a chance for you to pick up many dollars.
Grab it.

therefore, repeat: Shop early and buy

K. II. .lamieson, lormerly superintendent ol this division and later
general superintendent at Calgary and
tt innipeg, but since resigned Irom
tin- C.P.U., was elected mayor of
Calgary Inst Monday, receiving nearly as many votes as his three competitors combined. Mr. .lamieson
will make nn ideal mayor lor a
growing city like Calgary. He lias
liml a Ions eximricncc in superintend-
in: practical work ol construction as
well as acting in an executive capacity, anil with Ihis training and his
natural ability, will be able to discharge Ihe arduous and responsible
liiilies of that position. The Herald
(eels very proud ol the lact that
it was the first, or one ot the
lirst, to point out the. strength ol
.Mr.     .lamieson   as a   candidate lor
mayor ol    Calgary,   aod    naturally
feels good over his election.
lt has been decided by the council
to postpone presenting the proposition for voting bonds lor the new
school house, until it can be determined what might be the minimum
priee uf said debentures, so that such
a qualifying clause may he embodied
in the bylaw. It ts proposed to
iiuild a ten room school nouso to
cost (15,000. The trustees are con-
liilent ol tbe lact that by the time
the building will be completed there
will be a demand lor at least eight
rooms, including one room lor the
advanced class, for which arrangements will soon he effected. II there
Is any proposition for the voting ot
public money that should meet witb
the approval ol the taxpayers, it Is
that of improving the school facilities of the community. There is no
better advertisement lor a town than
'u good school.      We have had    this
demonstrated time without number
since being in Cranbrook, as the
hrst questica invariably asked by
anyone contemplating moving to this
section ol the country ls: "Have you
satisfactory school facilities,'' or
words to that efiect. W hen the
council are ready to present tbis
I proposition there should not be a
single vote cast against it. Cranbrook's present school buildings are
littlo better than a bunch ol shacks,
and the sooner they are replaced by
a modern school building thc hetter
it will be for Cranbrook.
There is another rumor atloat to
the efiect that Work will be Inaugurated upon the Kootenav Central early in tbe spring and that the road
will be completed from the Connection
witt tbe C.P.lt. as lar as Fort Steele
hy next Iail. Whether this is authentic or not we are not in a position to state, but trust that it
may Ih* true   and that the Kootenny
valley may have transportation lacili-
ties within Uie next year or two.
Naturally Cranbrook would like to
have the road, but the people ol
this town are anxious to sec the road
built, and if Cranbrook cannot secure it, all weil and good. What
the people want is thc development
of the Kootenny district, and with
this development Cranbrook will tako
care of hersell.

G. T. ROGERS
He had not an enemy, nml nil ol
thoso _who knew him were bis
friends. There arc tew who can
lead such a lilt*, and yet such was
lhe case with Donald Bremner, who
passed away at St. Eugene hospital
lust Sunday afternoon about 3
o'clock, after a hard fought battle
for life for a period of nearly nine
months. Although it was cencrallv
;nown that the chances for recovery
were few indeed, yet when the news
passed from household to household,
from one individual to another, almost invariably thc exclamation was
"Poor Dan." " And what a lfcht he
had made for the life ihal had
been placed in peril by the terrible
tall nearly nine months ago, Irom the
top of a tall tree where he was at
work In his occupation a.s lineman
for the telephone compasy. Crushed and suffering he was bi'iiuht tn
the hospital by tearful friends and
for months everything thai surgical
science could suirgt-st was done for
his improvement. And through it
all Dan was hopeful and cheerful.
Tlte singing of the birds during the
summer brought joy to his heart,
and his eyes Would brighten as
friends placed flowers upon bis
stand. No complaints wcrfl heard
from him, but on tbe contrary his
thoughts seemed always to be for
the feelings of others. Those who
visited his sick room were always
sure of a smile of welcome, and thc
suffering endured, tbe torture of
plaster casts and other necessary
treatment, the monotony of months
in bid, helpless and weary, failed to
subdue his Indomitable spirit or cast
shadow of gloom over his good
nature Many called on him at the
hospital prepared to become depressed and left with joyful hearts
and smiling faces after an half hour
wilh him. Several of the leading
surgeons of the west, after a consultation, decided that another operation would be necessasy to save
the injured limb, and this was successfully performed. Unfortunately,
owing to tho physical condition of
the patient, he never rallied from
the effects of the cither, and niter
lingering several days, passed peacefully away.
Donald Bremner was horn at White
Lake, Ontario, and was 25 years old
last October. Coming to Cranbrook
with his parents when a boy In his
teens, he soon became a general
favorite aud his popularity continued
to the hour of his death.
The funeral was held at the Presbyterian church last Monday afternoon at 2.30, and every business
bouse in town was closed, flags were
placed at half mast on the business
bouses and the city building.
The members of the K. of P. lodge
attended in a body, while the city
fire brigade wore their badges. Instead o! a hearst*. the hose wagon
was beautifully draped in black and
white and the remains taken in it
to the train.
The pall bearers wero: .J. McSweyn,
W. DeBeck, F. Dezall, I. Manning, J.
P. Fink and .?. Davis.
An impressive funeral service was
held in the Presbyterian church, conducted bv the pastor, Rev. C. O.
Main. The building was crowded to
the doors. The Knights of Pythias,
of whom deceased was a revered
member and the city flro brigade,
with whom Mr. Brcmuor had faithfully served since its inception, occupied the center of the auditorium. The choir led very impressively in the hvmn "Nearer My Ood to
Thee," which the departed one sang
repeatedly during his Illness. Atter
reading an appropriate lesson and
leading the mourners in praver, Mr.
Main spoke with deep feeling from the
words: "What I do, thou toowest
not now, but thou sbalt know hereafter."
This sad event, the break ng of a
family circle, the aching hearts, the
closing of a career brilliant and full
of promise, the coming of death after months of Illness patiently borne,
is the work of no Wind fate, cruel
destiny nor cold material law, but
tlte doing of a Ood whose name is
Love, whose character is Love and
whose nature lies fully disclosed In
the sublime life of Jesus Christ, He
alone would bear the responsibility
of all and give the assurance ot its
wisdom.and.mercy. His desire was
that we should cast our care upon
Him for He careth for us.
In. the meantime the reason and
end ol It all must remain hidden until the.mysteries of human life be
lifted and we shall then see clearly
as God sees now the reason tor it all
and shall then appreciate with Him
the wisdom and mercy of thc course
now so seemingly cruel and bitter.
The speaker then went on to say
impressively, perhaps, he even now
sees clearly the reason of it all and
if be could but speak to us would
say the reason iB so wise and merciful that it vnu saw It as clearly
I do now you would not murmur nor repine. You with aching
and bleeding hearts, must strive to
rest in faith in the meantime and
he consoled hy the assurance that
there is behind a wise nnd merciful
cause, "What I do thou knowest not
now."
Uut though om Merciful Father has
not seen it wise to take us into
His confidence as yet, it will not
always be so, but sometime we
shall see as clearly as Ood does now
the wisdom and mercy of this, our
present sorrow, and shall be able to
sav: "How glad I am God's will
not mine was done."
"Ood knows the   way, He holds the
He guides us with unerring hand,
Sometime   with   tearless    eye we'll
see.
Yos,    there,   up there,   we'll under
stand.
Lord," after which the remains were
viewed in reverence by almost the entire audience.
At.   the close of    the services    the
funeral   procession     wended its way
from    tbe church to the station, and
the remains were forwarded to Lethbridge tor     burial, accompanied     by
Mr. and Mrs.    0. P. Uremncr,     tbe
■ Vowing parents, aud    the brothers
dm and Charles.     The casket   was
u*rrd with wreaths and the Union
Jack.
The sympathy of the entire community goes out to thc bereaved
family,
SERVICES IN LETHBRIDGE.
(Lethbridge Daily HesaW.)
The remains of the late Dan Bremner were yesterday laid to rest in
Lethbridge cemetery at 3 o'clock,
ful lowed bv manv ' who now mourn
tbo loss of a tried friend. Mr.
Bremner was known and greatly ps-
neuit-d by bis many friends at Cran-
broo-k, where for the last* few years
In- has made his home.
Mr. Bremner was a valued member
of the Cranbrook Presbyterian
church, and it seems singularly appropriate that a one-time pastor of
that church. Rev. W. G. W. Fortune,
■ret ary ot tlie Alberta Moral Reform association, should be present
lo take the funeral service. Mr.
Uretnner was a member of the
Knights of Pythias, and all the
funeral arrangements were made by
the local lodge. Many ot the
brethren of this order were present, and after Rev. Mr. Fortune
bad performed the services of the
church, the service of the order was
also read.
Amongst the mourners were the
Following: Mr. and Mrs. Bremner, Edmonton, father and mother; Mrs. McKillop, aunt, and two cousins of deceased Mr. D. McKillop nnd Mr. G.
McKillop.
The remains    were carried to    the
rave bv brother Knights, the pall
liearers   being    Rrothers Robertson,
Wlesworth, Whyte, Moffat, Davis
and Tate.

MORE SIGNS OF GROWTH.
Although it is impossible, until after the New Year, to get figures oT
the actual increase in business along
tbe lines of public utilities, still
every one of these from the post
office to the telephone, have increased their business during the present
tear. In the post office tho business increased so mueh Uiat it was
necessary to erect a separate building to handle the work. The increase in the mail matter handled,
ilie post office orders sold, the deposits in thc post office savings bank,
the sale of stamps and in fact
every line of the post office business
bas increased materially during
l uus. Thc customs collected in
Cranbrook so far this year reaches
ihe sum of 135,5110 and the inland revenue received $12,000. With the
C.P.R. business bas increased a great
deal. Passenger business has Increased about 15 per cent over last
year and whilst the freight business
has only increased slightly, still it
bas increased in spite of the fact
that one of the chief sources of
freight supply, tho saw mills, were
shut down. The business of the
Dominion Express company has been
greater this year than last, both
in the sale ol express orders and
the carriage of giKHls. So it is evident tbat Cranbrook is rapidly
growing as a center for tlie Imsiness
of   the district.

BURNING OF MODERN ROME
(By Joseph Ryan.)
Il.nl a real, live journalist been
present at the burninir of Rome
lie would have made the scoop oi an-
I'icnt days. Fancy how he would
picture the blazing palaces, stored
wilh spoil from all tho nations
in those days and times, and with
what withering scorn he would hold
up Nero, the emperor who fiddled
while the tall towers ol his capital
went to wreck and ruin, to the accusing eyes ol an outraged world.
Such an opportunity comes only once
in a bundled decades ol years, hut it
is the privilege ol Hi.' Herald to
bare ihe recording ol the destruction
<>f Home the Second, sometimes
called tbe Modem Naples, locally
called HaoVa-tha-s-hop.
I'lilahila In Southern llnly has ben

cousin, tllovani Macarroni, ac-
coiiipnntod hy a host ol their

to sec thc uses those swashbucklers
made of those writs. Roadmaster
Topham said he had a writ of his
nwn that, with the aid of a southerly wind, would, he thouirtit, solve
the difficulty ol getting rid ot the
Ratahrlans. Last Saturdav up came
the wind as If specially ordered, and
Topham called round to see Spaghetti,   informing Wm  (tail  a*  tot

Topham   was   at once requested    to
go nn fire, to taka the chase atter

to go. Later on he called round
with a can ol coal oil, some waste
and a bundle of pine chips. Placing a small pile ot the combination near the southwest comer ol
each of the palaces, he next took a
match, lit it,' applied lt to the
liile, and awaited developments. In-
sitle a second the manhood ol
Southern Italy was outside, swearing, raging, tearing and tanking out
all manner ol old telescope valises,
hags, and rags (rom the flaming
wrcck-s of their one-time strongholds.
Topham stood bv quietly seeing to

llu- Dagos cursing him with an
eloquence that made even their fingers vivid. Home the Second was
doomed to destruction, and its late
Inhabitants seized what they could

Marey 1). Couch, Agent Canadian
Northwest oil Company, who waa on
lhe slrei-ts one day this week, reports that the Company now have
two complete oil drilling plants, costing some Jlii.finil.llll. The most up-
to-date machinery that science cat
make nr monev buy, together with
11330 acres ol land, a valuable water
fall lor tarnishing power lor a
multitude ol purposes and a well

Mr. Slater, the Company's oil ex-
I'l'it. thinks he Is getting about
through thc hard rock (which has
been so very hard that the hig
drilling bit HO feet long, weighing
10,000 pounds, has to be heated and
tempered every hour) and expects
more oil short of 1700 leet deep.
Many prominent men. Including two
properly, alter a careful examination
property, alter a caselul examination
ol flat nature of undisturbed formations, showings of oil, burning oil
gas, feci absolutely certain thai the
Company Is on the right ground
and that they wlll be richly re-pald
lor   their time and outlay.
It has taken the Company much
lomrer than was anticipated to get
their No. 1 well down, but any business man will readily understand that
there are many delays which cannot
be helped, but are very anaoylng at
Uie time. The Company has made a
good record so far, drilling was only
commenced the latter part ot Ust
February, less    than a year ago.

tt small profit, are not the people
who are wealthy today for having
bull dog tenacity enough to hold on
for a day or two.
One gentleman, now working ot a
•mall monthly salary, sold enough ol
the Crows Nest shares lor S50.00,
while the party who purchased same
is living easy on them in Toronto,
the same shares now being worth
197,000.00. Another party In n
neighboring town, who is still working day alter day, sold 4 nm, shares
in the St. Eugene mine lor 40c. which
are tnday worth more than H.100,-
000.00. These are facts and the
writer personally is acquainted with
these gentlemen. At the critical
time that these shares were sold,
not only did these gentlemen hurt
themselves by selling, but they hurt
tlie Company by throwing stock on
the market tinder its real value at a
time when the Company was trying
to realize more money on its treasury stock for development purposes.
It Is h.iprd the Shareholders In the
Canadian Northwest Oil Company
wont mak-e a similar mistake, whether from cold leet or lor making a
small profit, thus unwisely parting
with stock which is the best buy in
thc Northwest today, and it wont bo
many months until this statement
will be realized, Visitors at tbo
camp say thc Company have tar
more than bas been told. The property is properly located and things
aro being   done In the right way.
The big drill is going 24 hours a
day and it wlll be kept going until a
big well Is struc'*:. This Company
will stand your carelul inspection and
criticism.
Three other oil companies are
drilling, the Alberta oil boom Is coming, SURELY YOU WONT BE
FOUND WANTING WHEN SHARES
ARE OUT OF YOUR REACH.
When they start on the upward
swing shares wlll be hard to get.

Crubmk Full Lands
Heretofore, our principal industries being
Lumbering and Mining, it is only recently that
the fruit growing possibilities of this district
have become generally known.
We unquestionably have the soil, and I
contend, a superior climate; and after spending
a month last summer in the Spokane district,
I came back fully convinced that Cranbrook
was good enough for me, and as an earnest of
my iaith, I at once began the erection of a
bouse on my tract, and am now living on the
land.
I own and control over 1000 acres of selected
fruit lands, and avail myself of this opportunity
of offering them for sale.
Sj jealous are some other B. C. fruit districts
that they try to discourage intending investors
here. Well, it does not enhance the relative
value of their lands, nor does it make our soil any
the less productive. Thank fortune, we have
no "knockers" here, they don't thrive in Cranbrook. Everybody will welcome you, not excepting " Old Man Simpson" of " The
Herald" and our ideal Mayor, Jake Fink.
All I ask is a visit to convince you that this
district is ideal for fruit growing, and as a place
of residence, but because I pay lor this advertis-
ment don't feel under any obligation to me for
directing your attention this way. When you
get off the train, call on Mr. V. Hyde Baker,
Messrs. Arnold & Roberts, Beale and Elwell,
or The Frost Investment Co., and I can assure
you that they will offer you nothing but ilt
Edge Tracts.  In fact, that is all we nave here.
Of course, I will also be glad to see you,
whether you wish to purchase or not, and if
you cannot spare the time to come, I will cheerfully answer all correspondence, regarding not
only iruit lands, but any other matter concerning this district,

will appear at the Auditorium Wednesday evening, December 23rd. The
Polmatier Sisters have played in
Cranbrouk before and it is with a
feeling of mosl pleasant anticipation lhat their many friends await
their return. Their cunccrt this
season contains many new features,
teeming with brightness, freshness
and originality and their trip
through Canada this season has
been almost as one triumphant
tour. Everywhere from Toronto
west thc press aud public have heen
I ul I some   in   their praise.
At Edmonton recently where tlw
talented girls filled an engagement
uf one weeii under a heavy guarantee, tile Edmonton Bulletin says:
"The Dominion theatre was iillod lu
capacity last night with an audience
who went lo criticise the Polmatier
Sisters—if tlicy tailed to make good
—but they did*. The work of the
girls was of thc very best class,
in fact il was about the smoothest musicale ever heard in Edmon-
inc Tatious numbers were
cub gems   in     themselves and    the
itlicnco   called    tor encore       alter
core to which   the girls graciously
sponded.
The quality of the   work    ol these
talented   artists   can best he judged
tlie   difficult   selections   Uiey attempted and rendered to perfection.
Tbe world's famous Intermezzo
from Mascoguc's Cavalieria Rustican-
na; was a dejigbtful item, while the
woll known Anvil Chorus was received with rapturous applause,
.That Uie Polmatier Sisters have
made a "hit" with the citizens of
Edmonton is unquestionable, as at
tbe close of the concert they were
each presented with a bouquet of
hrysanthemums hy thc young and
handsome men oi the city known as
the law students."
All local lovers of the best
a music should not fail to hear
tbis talented company.

WHAT  THE ADVANCE AOENT
SAYS ABOUT "SI PLUNKARD."
"Si Plunkard" will soon be here
and all lovers of mirth and music
should remember Mr. J. C. Lewis,
tho character comedian, in the rural
comedy drama, "Si Plunbard,"
which will be at the Auditorium on
Chrislmas night. This very laughable play is in four acts and depicts
rural life in a very realistic manner.
Tbe efforts of the author have been
to glvo thc play tbo surroundings
of realism ihat has made it one of
lhe most delightful of stago psodue-
tious. The story is that af a good,
old-fashioned couple on the farm,
whose beautiful home lile and surroundings appeal with peculiar tenderness to every author. Anything
that tells of the hills, fields, meadows and lanes of tlie country and
quaint characters found there, is always one ol the most delightful
dramatic treats Uiat a city can behold. During the action ot tho
play a number of new nnd novel
specialties will be introduced, including clever little Arietta Lewis,
presenting n programme unexcelled
for fun, originality and novelties, giving you an evening of enjoyment that
vou will not soon forget- Wateh Ior

BY A DREAMER.
Men and women don't need tb swing
clubs to threaten home a Qcord. Tbe
husband, armed with a sneer, and the
wife who carries a waspish tongue,
,'are just as well comparison'd fur
death-dealing battle, as though they
J pounded each other wilh baseball
| bats. Sarcasm and nagging are to
tho atmosphere of love what sand-
Hies and fleas arc to summer weather. Who would not prefer an occasional brush with a roaring June
bug, to the eternal torment of a
flea you can't catch?
Woman's character has been likened
to a postage stamp—one black mark
ruins it. Man's like a treasury
note—no matter how many stains, it
still passes at par. This double
standard established by society is not
just, but it is recognized the civilized
World over.
Tlio  married    lile, though entered
ever so well, and with all proper
preparation, must be lived well oi
it will not be useful or happy. Married- life will not go itsell, or if it
does it will tint keep the track. It
will turn oil at every switch and fly
ofi at every turn or impediment, lt
needs a couple of good conductors
who understand thc engineering of
life. Good watch must tic kept for
breakers ahead. The (Ires must be
kept up by a    constant addition   of
] the   fuel   or   aflection.      The boilers
i must he kept full nnd and thc
machinery in order, and all hands at
their posts, else   there   will    be    a
.smashing up, or life will go hobbling
or jolting along, wearing and tearing,
: breaking and bruising, leaving some
heads and hearts to get well the
best way they ean. H requires
skill nrudence, and judgment to lead
this life well, and these must be
in thc world, hungering for rccogni-
and integrity.
| How many hungry hearts there are
in the wor.d, hungering fur recognition, for a word of praise! Tbe hungriest heart in this world is an un-
praised woman whose husband never
gives her a word of praise or recognition for a sacrifice made in his
behalf. Love may be there in his
heart for her, love deep and abiding,
and should death claim ber, thc fountains of his heart would realize what
he had lost, and cover her grave with
roses. Had they been presented a
single one at a time with a tithe of
the tenderness he now shows, her
pathway would bave been far brighter and in her life a ray of sunshine,
not that her burdens weie appreciated. A hungry heart, which is
destined never to be fed, is one of
the saddest spectacles ever witnessed
in this world of ours. If you have
word of praise to .bestow on your
wife—If it is due, bestow it. Do not
wait until she is dead, and be forced
through blinding tears to tell your
heart in its wild throbbing that
you have lived a dual life by
tilling thoughts and keeping back
words that would have brought a
flush of pleasure to her cheeks, old as
she is, and set her heart to dancing
with a .pleasure onlv .known to
thoso who nave bad their hungry
hearts fed by words of praise and
n-commendatibn.
YOUNG MEN AND MARRIAGE
A young man meets a pretty face
in the ball room, falls in love with
it, courts it. marries it, goes to
housekeeping with it and boasts of
having a home and a wife to grace
it. The chances are nine to ten
that he has neither. He has been
"taken in and done for'" Her
pretty face gets to be an old story,
or becomes faded or freckled or
(retted, and as the face was all he
wanted, all be paid attention to, all
he sat up with, all be bargained
for, all be swore to love, honor and
protect-, he gels sick of his trade,
knows of a dozen pretty faces he
likes better, gives up staying it home
evenings, consoles himself with
tgars and politics and looks upon
his home as a very indifferent boarding house.
Another voung man becomes en-
amorod of a "fortune." He waits
upon it to parties, dances a polka
with it, exchanges "billet doux"
with it, pops tlie question to it,
gets accepted by it, takes it to thc
parson, weds it, calls it "wife," carries it home, sets up an establishment with it, introduces It to his
friends and says be too is married
and has a borne. It is false. He is
not married, he has no home. And
he soon finds it out. He is in tho
wrong box, but it Is too late to get
out of It; he might as well try to
get out of his coffin. His friends
congratulate him and he has to grin
and bear it.
If a young man would escape these
sad consequences, let him shun the
rocks upon which so many have been
shipwrecked. Let him disregard
wholly nil considerations of wealth,
beauty, external accomplishments,
fashion, connections in society, nnd
every other mere selfish and worldly
end and look in to the mind and
heart nf tho woman lie thinks of
marrying. if ho cannot love her
for herself alone—that Is for all that
coes to make up her character ns a
woman—let hlm disregard every external inducement, and shun a marriage with her as the greatest evil
tn which he could he subjected, And
if be has In him a spark of virtuous
feeling—if he has one selfish and generous emotion—he will shun such a
mnttiag0 for the woman's sake also,
for it would be sacrificing her happiness as well as his own.
Poverty is uncomfortable, but nine'
cases out of ten, the best thinn tbat
can happen to a   young man is to lie
tossed overboard and compelled     to '
sink! or swim for himself.

hot  months ago ou a   trading voyage
to Chilian    ports, and it was    while

trouble occurred. From some cause
not vet ascertained, hut which probably arose from a matter of duty,
hnd feeling arose between the boatswain, named Layson, nnd one of
ilie other members of the crew,
and the intervention of the second
mate, a native of North Wales, whose
name was Hlaekhill, became necessary, Layson's feud was then extended to the second mate. There
was an excited quarrel between him
iind the other two men as the resu.t
of which be savagely attacked Blaca-
bill with a carpenter's axe, inflicting
such terrible injuries that the
victim du-d almost directly. Realising the awful nature of the crime
lie bad committed, Layson then determined to end his existence, which
he effected by jumping overboard,
his death following quickly upon tbat

At Dumbarton, recently, KheiiH
Blair hoard evuli-nee nnd gave judgment in a rather novel small debt action. The pursuer was Mrs. Kasdan,
and the defenders the Dumbarton Cooperative Society, the latter Iieing
sued lor a sum of £-1. The evidence
established that in August Mrs. Kas-
ilon, while shopping, lost a 115 note.
On or ahoul the samo day a stranger
entered lbe simp ol the society and
ti-nderid a rolled up note lo pay lot
1 lb. ol plums. He was given the
plums ami chance for 111, and with
that seemed quite satisfied. On
ma-iiig up the cash, however, the
shop girl found U was a -S5 note
which lo had tendered. Since that
time the stranger had not applied
for lbe other tl, but Mrs. Uasdon,
hearing ol lhc affair, had madu ap-
pllcatlon that tho -85 was hers, and
asking tor the return ol tbe tl, in
which ease she was willing to give
lhe society n uuu mtco that she
would refund the money 11 it should

The sheriff gave decree lor the sun:
sued lor, with no expenses, and under

her loss of the sum stated.
Tbe announcement has just been
made of thc death, in her 107th

From incidents which she remember-
i*il and stories which sbe could relate
Ihere is little doubt that Mrs. White
had attained thc age with which she
was credited. She had a vivid recollection ol the rejoicings which
heralded Wellington's defeat ol
Napoleon at Waterloo. Mrs. White
also often talked ot thc hardships to which manv of the people
ol Argyllshire were subjected owing
lo the failure oi the potato crop in
tho early lorties, and bad many reminiscences of the riots which occurred iu the country during the
Corn Law movement anil the disturbances at tlte time ol the Disiup-
t mi. Hale and hearty, the old woman retained all h:r faculties until

CraiM Fruit Lands
Heretofore, our principal industries being;
Lumbering and Mining, it is only recently that
the fruit growing possibilities of this district
have become generally known.
We unquestionably have the soil, and I
contend, a superior climate; and after spending
a month last summer in the Spokane district,
I came back fully convinced that Cranbrook
was good enough for me, and as an earnest of
my faith, I at once began the erection of a
house on my tract, and am now living on the
land.
I own and control over 1000 acres of selected
fruit lands, and avail myself of this opportunity
of offering them for sale.
So jealous are some other B. C. fruit districts
that they try to discourage intending investors
here. Well, it does not enhance the relative
value of their lands, nor does it make our soil any
the less productive. Thank fortune, we have
no "knockers" here, they don't thrive in Cranbrook. Everybody will welcome you, not excepting "Old Min Simpson" of "The
Herald" and our ideal Mayor, Jake Fink.
All 1 ask is a visit to convince you that this
district is ideal for fruit growing, and at a place
of residence, but because I pay tor this advertis-
ment don't feel under any obligation to me for
directing your attention this wav.   When you
Ret off the train, call on Mr. V. Hyde Baker,
leisrs. Arnold & Roberts, Beale and Elwell,
or The Frost Investment Co.,and I can assure
you that they will offer you nothing but lit
Edge Tracts.  In fact, that Is all we have here.
Of course, I will also be glad to see you,
whether you wish to purchase or not, and If
you cannot spare the time to come, I will cheerfully answer all correspondence, regarding not
only fruit lands, but any other matter concerning this district.

city COUNCIL
THEY    DECIDE   TO  POSTPONE
ELECTION FOR  SCHOOL
DEBENTURES.
The council mot ln special session
on Monday evening witb Mavor Fink
In t-he chair and Alderman Baker,
Ryan, Jackson and Henderson and
City Solicitor Thompson present.
Tho object ol tho special meeting
was to receive the report ot tbe
school trustees re the application
lor tho presentation ol a bylaw
tor Hie borrowing ol (50,000 tor
building a now school bouse. Trustees J. A. Harvey and J. O. McCallum represented thc school board,
G. T. Rogers being unable to attend
tbe meeting.
Mayor Fink opened proceedings with
statement as to the council's attitude, saying tbat they did not
think it wise to proceed hastily, but
to wait until reliable information
might lie secured as to thc best plan
to adopt in issuing tbe debentures,
Mr. Ilarvcy said that there were
three reasons why tho trustees wished •.-*. early election, the expense, the
opportunity lo secure a better expression ot opinion at the municipal
election and last, to prevent the j
matter drifting, ns ho looked upon a
now school house as an absolute
necessity.
City Solicitor Thompson brought
up tbe point that 221 per cent ot
the taxable property in the school
limit was outside of the boundaries
of the municipality, and that
consequence lt might be possible to
secure a grant trom the provincial
government.
Mr. Ryan said he was In favor
ot a building large enough and a
good building.
Mr. Baker took the same view
but thought that $50,000 was a
large amount tor the purpose desired.
Mr. McCallum said tbat tho new
cantract price ot the Fernio school
was 135,000, att eight room build-
Mr. Harvey nld that the estimated amount needed lor the building
and furnishing was 1411,000, hut the
trustee* were asking for 160,000 so
that they would not have to come
belore ttie counolt again. He also expressed the opinion that in view ot
the tact that the proporty outside
of Hie municipality could not be
taxed tor school purposes, and that
the outside property represented
about 25 per cent of the proporty In
the ichool district, be thought It reasonable to believe that the government would make a grant to moot
tbis dilerenoe.
Alter Messrs. Harvey and McCalluirt J
had retired the council discussed the
situation and finally decided that as
they were desirous ol securing lurther Information they would not pre-
m-uIi iue \t)-i... ** -.ne nth ot January.
Mr. McCallum circulated tbe petition the next day and secured tbe
required signatures, and the election
on the school loan will be called at a
later date.

HUNDREDS OF TONS OK COAL
BURNING.
Fort William, Ont., Di-c. 22.—The
most destructive coal tire that bas
over visited thc head ol the lakes
has been in progress lor weeks at tho
Canadian Pacillc coal docks. To combat thc conllaf-ratlon and save tens
ol thousands ol tons ol solt coal that
aro threatened, the railway eompnny
bas resorted to almost every known
means ol extinguishing the blare
without result. The amount ol coal
that has been consumed is littlo less
than a conjecture. Hundreds of
tons at least havo been reduced to
ashes, and thousands of tons more
may go before the fire is checked
Thero arc more thun 100,0110 tons ir
thu mountainous piles on fire and
dozens of coal shovellers have fruitlessly endeavored to get nt the
scat of the blaze. Fanned by gusts
of wind, clouds of smoke and Maine
burst fort* al night giving thc appearance of a miniature volcano ill
ruption- In an extreme elTort to
'Xtin-guish the blaze, the company is
preparing to put in operation a
steam shovel. It will lie weeks before the scat ol lhe blaze can be
reached, II at all. Spontaneous
combustion is responsible for the
Ore.

TOM GILL'S BROTHER KILLED
MET HIS DEATH    WHILE HUNTING NEAR SPOKANE,
Yesterday a telegram arrived hen*
from Spokane announcing tho accidental death of Allan F. Gill, brother
of Thomas GUI, ol this city. As
Mr. Gill is lying seriously ill at his
bome with typhoid fever and his
daughter is still in a critical condition with the same disease, the telegram was delivered to Mrs. Gill and
the knowledge oi its contents kept
from ber husband. Tbis additional
trouble would have proved a seven-
shock to Mr. Gill, as this brother
was bis lavorlte and Mr. Gill had
oltcn visited with him ln Spokane.
I'he deceased bad been Ior many
years very prominent In the political circles of Spokane and tho state
ot Washington. For a number ol
years he served as city engineer ol
the city ol Spokane and afterward*.,
us consulting engineer in tbo extension of thc water works system.
His tragic death was a severe
shock to his Iriends in Spokane. Under the circumstances neither Mr.
Gill nor any member ol the lamily
wilt he able to attend thc lunorni.
Tho following account ol the accident
appeared in yesterday's Spokesman-
Review:
Wilson Creek, Wash., Doc. 22.—Alan F. Oili, former city engineer ol
Spokane and manager ol the Independent Asphalt company, was found
dead this morning on the Ice on the
shore ol Moses lake, some 30 miles
south ol here. It is tlie opinion ol
those who lound him that bo had
'ithcr slipped on the ice and bis gun
discharged or that the trigger nail
■aught in the tulcs. Ho was on a
hunting trip with F. C. Robertson,
ol Spokane-
Tho charge ol shot had struck him
n the right jaw and his head was
iiirribly mutilated. Ho was lound
by a searching party and the body
brought here tonight. Thc remains
will be sent to Spokane on Great
Northern train No. 2, due   hero
We desire to thank the people of
Cranbrook and the district for
their Liberal patronage this
year, and wish them all

Why Does
THE HERALD'S
Business Grow ?
T
HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equiped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, the
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us.  We can lease you.

Co., Limited
