of This Nature
A large number of prospectors and
business men filled tho c'ty hall Mon
duy evening, Marcli tho 7th, to hear
the Resident mining engineer for the
Kuoiuiuys Mr. A. Q. Langley, of Rov-
olstoko, loeturo on "Geology." Tho
chairman, Mr, 0, Evans, or Marysvllle,
president of tho ProspeotorB1 Associa-1
lion, outlined tho alms of thu pros-
peetorfl In this connection, Thoy
sought thruugh such gatherings to
interest tho public In gotioral in the
trcui.ndous nilnoral woaltti at tho
door or Cranbrook and district,
In Introducing Ills subject which wus
illiisirnied by charts und specimens of
oro, lie drew at ton ton to tbo fact that
geology an a Bdence was of prime
Importance to every prospector. Somo
knowledge of this Bdence along with
nntlve common sense would save
much valuable time nnd bring better
Mr. Langley stated that it was the
crust of the earth that was of first m-
portance to the miner and tlie study
of this crust was the scienco of geology. At some remote time tlie earth's
crust was formed by the cooling of a
.gaseous mass. Movements of the
earth's crust was responsible in a
large measure for strata formation
along with erosion and other phenomena. Today tlte original crust Is not
evident anywhere. Sedimentary rocks
nnd formations have been caused by
weather conditions and erosion. Some
of tiie most prominent of these sedi
mentary formations are ranges and
highlands. Oil as a member of the
crust is a distillation product from organic remains although it seldom remainder In the region in whicli ltswas
distilled, migrating through sandstone
formation often under great hydraulic
pressure, It was stated that the "Arrow Lakes are but the sedimentary
basin for the Columbia river and.that
some day these lakes, according to
Mr. Langley. might he a fertile valley
The chief sedimentary formations are
sandstones and limestones. Every
formation constitutes a record of time
when il was laid and the character of
the sediments of each formation tell
whether the nrea was land or sea at
the lime when they were spread. Each
formation is a separate chapter in
geological history and its strnta are
its leaves. Such formations form a
record, by virtue of the fossils found
imbedded in the rocks, of the animals
aud plants which inhabited the earth
at that time. The history of life upon
tho earth ls thus constructed-
I'usslng on to the oldest known sedimentary strata the speaker referred
tn the Arohean strata- nbout which
many theories ranged. But nll these
theories agree that the present foliated crystalline rocks are due to the
intense met n mor phi sm which they
have suffered. Upon the Archean
strata rests Algonklau formation often thousands of feet thick. The Orand
Canyon of Colorado Is a typical ares
for the study of tills formation. In
these formations the pre-Canibrian
rocks are of prime Importance to mineral men. They are of economic Importance because of Ihelr extensive
metatnprphlsm nnd enormous mass of
Igneous rock which thoy Involve. Thoy
are often the source or supply ot granite, gneiss, marble, slate, and still
mote valuable as stores of Iron, copper and other metals.
The   Paleozoic  era  consists of    the
Cambrian, Ordovlclan, Silurian. Devonian, and Carboniferous systems.
l-Tjith of these systems is world wide
in its distribution and may he recog-
nl/ed on any continent by Its own peculiar fauna.   The Cambrian  period
was one of BUbtnergence, it began

range throughout tho later formations
down to tlie most rivent.
Bpeatal reference was made to the
carboniferous period   during   which
vast fields of coal were formed chiefly from tropical ferns of tremendous

mentioned tin coal deposits of Pennsylvania. U.S.A. und also immense regions In tho Arctic where apparently

In the remote past. Brief references
wero also made to tlie latter forma-
tlone—Mssosblo, Tertlnry and the
(Jualerrary formations. Several of
the formations wero illustrated by diagrams on tho screen.
A hearty vote of thanks to Mf.
Langley was moved by Mr. J. P.
Huchcroft and seconded by Mr. 0. J.
Spreull. It was also moved that the
govornment be informed of the prospectors' appreciation of Mr. Langley 1

At uu executive meeting of the
Board of Trude held on Monday of
this week, it was decided among other
tilings, to uppoint tlie secretary of tlie
board, Mr. W. M. Harris, as publicity
secretary at an added consideration
over aud above that tendered him for
iiis work heretofore. Tho new duties
to, be assumed by Mr. Harris consist
of maintaining a sort of Information
bureau In ngard to tho district, particularly Tor the benefit of tourists
and others who in passing through
the city may desire information either
as to road routes, or as to the resources of the district, and along other
liui... Much work of this nature has
lieen done in pant seasons by members of tho automobile club nnd bonrd
of trade, and to such a volume did
these enquiries attain last season,
that lt was felt this year it would require a paid secretary to cope with the
correspondence and enquiries tiiat
come along.
It is planned If possible to secure
the office space adjoining that at
present used by Mr. Hurris and f t It
up as a district Information bureau,
with possibly some representative district exhibits, and other arrangements
fitting to such quarters. A streamer
may also be put across the street to
inform tourists and others Interested
as to the location of the office.
This is something along the lines
of what has been done at Pernie,
where Mr. J. P. Spaulding has been In
charge. 'He has maintained as well a
tourist register, with particulars as
to the journey under way, destination,
routes, etc., and a space also for remarks. He has reported splendid results from the maintenance of his office, and there Is no doubt that Cranbrook will reap considerable benefit
also from the establishment of such.
The news of the death of Mary
Stuart Robertson dearly beloved wife

Brief mention was mado in last
week's issue of a meeting of the spec-
al joint publicity meeting of the Associated Boards of Trade, which took
place on Wednesday of last week ln
this city. There were present Mes-
rsr. J. F. Spaulding, or Fernie, who
acted as chairman; W. H. Cleland,
of tiie Windermere District Board,
who was appointed secretary of the
meeting; and Messrs. J. P. Fink, F.
M. MacPherson and W. H. Wilson, of
the Cranbrook hoard.
The chief business before the meeting, ns explained by the chairman,
was the consideration of the matter of
issuing another tourist booklet for the
present year.
Different forms of booklets were
discussed, and finally it was decided
to get denite data on tlie cost of one
very much along the lines of that Issued last year, but of only sixteen pages instead of twenty-four. It will
be made up almost entirely of Illustrations of the district, containing
very little reading matter beyond a
page or so of introductory, whicli will
be prepared by Mr. Spaulding. The
final cost, including distribution, of
the ten thousand copies which will
probably be prepared will approximate a thousand dollars, It Is anticipated, which will be borne ln the following proportion by tlie boards of trade
comprising the East Kootenay Associated Boards: Cranbrook and Fernle
$400 each; Creston and Windermere,
$67 each; Golden, $66. Final action
In the matter will not bo taken before the matter has received the sanction of tho boards interested. The
provincial forestry department has
signified its willingness to take advertising space on the back of the
booklet, for which it is prepared to
pay the sum of one hundred dollars,
which will go towards the cost of the

Great War.        ^^^^^^^
A sumptuous banquet was supplied
by the Ladies' Auxiliary aud this constituted the first part of tlie program.
The chair was occupied by Mr. J.
Beaton. In his remarks Mr. Beaton
referred to tiie strength of ths Brotherhood und the quota which had enlisted In the war period. The total
membership of the brotherhood Id
.North America is 192,000 of whom up
proximately one-sixth or 32,000 an
in Canada. The total number who
enlisted in Canada and the U. S. A
was 27,188 of which number 818 were
killed or died of injuries received.
Approximately $925,000 was paid in
claims for death and disability arising
out of tlie war. It was interesting to
note, the chairman stated, that out ot
tlie local lodge with an average membership of 85 during the period of the
war, seven members were killed on
service or died from effects. Tills
lodge in proportion to membership
lost more than any other lodge in
Canada or the U.S.A. The Ladies'
Auxiliary of the B.R.T. has a total
membership of 40,000 of which number 4,000 are ln Canada.
Other speeches were delivered by
Col. C. H. Pollem, who presented the
medals, Mayor Genest, J. Lunn, president of the G.W.V.A., Dr. Green, and
Rev. R. W. Lee. Several musical selections were rendered by Mrs- S. Mcintosh and Mrs. J. Thompson, Mrs. A.
Wallace accompanying. Dancing also
took place during the evening.
The following membors of the order
were killed lu service or died of
wounds: A. P. Armstrong, John Cameron, Harry Deacon, William Harrison, W. L. Gregor, G. "P. McDonald
and O. W. Pollard.
The following saw service and were

personally their decoration
The medals presented have been
struck specially for the Brotherhood.
On the face there Is represented two
figures suggestive of tho Angel of
Peace giving the blessing of peace to
the returned veteran. The reverse
bears the following Inscription "Presented by the Brotherhood of Railroad

their services to their country for the
sake of Democracy and the uplifting
of Humanity-" The inscription on the
face reads "For Service tn the World
Wlar for Liberty and for the Freedom
of the Nations."
One of the must interesting Forum
meetings of tbe season took place on
Thursday evening with the president
in tlie chair.
Tlit program for the evening took
ihe form of impromptu speeches, the
topics of which were assigned by lots.
Tlie following topics were discussed:

there had been some talk regarding

VICTORIA.— There are approximately 15,000 miles of roads in British
Columbia, states the annual report of
the public works department, tabled
last Friday in the Legislature at Victoria by Hon. J. H. King, minister of
that branch of the government service.
With such a task before the government It was declared impossible to
keep the roads in' the best condition
with the appropriations available.
However, attention was concentrated
upon substantially Improving portions
ot the main-travelled routes and keeping the other portions in a reasonably
good state of repair.
The Herald Is In receipt of an Old
Country weekly paper, "The Ilford
Recorder," from a subscriber resident
at Ilford, Essex, England.   Tt Is In
(Experimental Farms Note)
On several occasions, particularly
through tlie medium of "Seasonable
Hints," Issued by the Experimental
Farms Branch of the Dominion Department of Agriculture, attention has
been called to the usefulness of several grasses which at present are little appreciated In Canada. The grasses to which ln the past particular attention has been called as valuable
adjuncts to hay and pasture mixtures
are Orchard llrass and Meadow Fescue. The former Is considered as one
of the best for dairy farms in Den
mark where, as ls well known, dairying hns reached a height of perfection
uneQuallel by any other country. The
latter grass is also considered ex
tremely valuable in hay and pasture
mixtures wherever Intensive farming
is practised. Our experience ls that,
in Canada, these two grasses would,
if added to the standard and often
stereotyped mixture of clover and timothy, materially help to increase the
value of the hay crops and of the
But besides these grasses there are
several others, the introduction of
whicli Into Canadian farming would no
doubt prove most beneficial provided
tbat tbey are used under conditions
in whicli they can prove their real
We have especially in mind the use
of some grasses which, although of
little Importance for hay. yet are very
valuable as pasture grasses, that ls to
say may be advantageously put In as
bottom grasses tn hay mixtures and
pastures when the hay has been removed. Among these grasses are the
Kentucky Blue grass, suitable especially for loamy soil, the Sheep's Fescue and tho Red or Creeping Fescue
on light land, the Red Top especially
under wet conditions, anl the Crested
Dog's Tall under similar conlltlons.
In our opinion it would pay to add
these grasses in small quantities to
grass mixtures seeded down with the
taller growing grasses primarily
looked upon aB hay producers. Indeed,
the experience of countries where thr
farms are small and where consequently the highest possible returns
are imperative to make farming a
living proposition, strongly points to
the advisability of Including four or
five or even more grasses In hay and
pasture mixtures so as to make It the
moro remunerative.

On Saturday, March 12th, a book
shower and musicale will be held ln
the clubhouse at 9 p.m. in aid of the
club library. Price of admission, one
book. Particulars of the musical program are given elsewhere In thla issue. On Thursday March 17. St. Patrick's day, the monthly club dance
will be held from 9.30 to 2. The charge
for members will be 50c each and for
non-members 11.00 each, Deluding
refreshments. There will be good
music and a good time for all.
Owing to the large number of members now enrolled and to the limited
capacity of the clubhouse, the membership list will be closed after March
15 until further notice and all applications received after that date will
be placed on a waiting list. While the
board regrets that It has been found
necessary to take this action they feel
that lt ls not right to overtax the
capacity of the club by having more
members thaa the present accommf-
tlon can conveniently take care of.
At the general meeting of the club
held on Saturday last the constitution
and by-laws were duly ratified. The
proposal received from the Y.M.C.A-
was tabled for three months, the
course of action In tho meantime being left to the discretion of the board*
Tho attendance at the general meeting was very smalt, there being barely
sufficient present to mako a quorum.
This may be taken as a gratifying sign
of confidence in the board of directors
and the handling of the club bo far.
or It may be merely a disappointing
evidence of the spirit of apathy so
frequently displayed toward public Institutions in Cranbrook. The members should realize that each one has
a duty toward the club, and that unless all the members stand behind it
and display a real interest in all Its
activities the success of the club can
only be very limited. It is to be hoped
that the next meeting will see a much
larger attendance.
On Sunday next at 7.30 the pastor,
Rev. R. W. Lee, will give the second
address on 'Spiritual VolceB In the
Literary World,' his Bubject being
"Peer Ghynt." These addresses are
for all, and a hearty Invitation la glv-
•a to all. ^^   L
Tiie usual sheaf of monthly accounts
were received and passed.
A letter from Principal Armstrong
of the high school drew attention to
ttie fact that some science supplies
now considerably overdue were hun-
d capping Uie work somewhat by their
non-appearance. The secretary reported to the board that lie had boen
advised the supplies in question would
be here any day now.
Mr. Armstrong's request fn regard
to getting the school grounds fixed
Up was referred to the grounds committee With power to act. Likewise
the matter of some re-decorating in
tie building was left tu the hands of
the chairman of the board. Mr. W. H.
Wilson, wbo will take what action be
teems best in the matter.
Mr. Armstrong's request for a typewriter for use at the high school, and
which might form the nucleus of a
battery of machines If it was decided
to put On the commercial course lat--
er in the year, was taken up. and by
giving Instructions to the secretary
to secure prices on a number of new
machines, the board seemed to ln-
cline itself to the establishment of tlie
proposed commercial course in the
tall. «
J. B. Sutherland, of Calgary, was
reappointed auditor for the year at
the usual fee ot 115.00. ■
A formal motion was also put
through authorizing the provincial government to add to Its tax sale lists
the lands in the school district on
which the school taxes are delinquent.
The efTect of this is merely to bring
the lands in question into one tax sale
instead of two, with some overlapping
in consequence.
Two applications were received
asking that the board make payments
for substitutes secured to carry on
during sickness of the regular teachers. Tbis comes under the new rule
established by the board at a previous
regular meeting, allowing a teacher
ten daya" substitute pay in such cases
ring the year, and the board on
Wednesday agreed to date its ruling
back to the first of the year, and to
grant the two applications brought
before it. $4.00 per day is being allowed for a substitute's pay. and the
production of a doctor's certificate
will also be asked for In every case.
The Idea was advanced, with a view
to encouraging the high school pupils, of offering a prize for the best
essay on the district, for publication
In Hie high school magazine. It wan
finally decided on a motion of Trustees Nlsbet and Mrs. Jackson t'J offer
two prizes, of $3.00 and $3.00, for the
best essays by high school pupils on
the subject, "Cranbrook District, Present and Future." to be published In
the school magazine. The staff of the
high school will Judge the essays.
Trustee McPhee thought the fairer
way would be to have the- prize money
go to the treasury of the magazine rather than to the pupil.
The secretary asked for a ruling
In regard to the payment of teachers'
salaries, or a portion of them, before
same are due, at the end of tha month.
The board felt that as salaries were
now being paid promptly on tli-1 first
if the month for the month preceding,
it was unnecessary to make any spe-
lal ruling to cover such cases', and It
will be left to the discretion of tho
secretary to act aH the circumstances
A formal motion was put through
to give a bond for the safe-keM'ing of
the rifles to be used for drill purposes ln connection with tlie new cadet movement now on foot in the
schools of the ctiy.
The janitor work at the South Ward
School has not heen altogether up to
what Ih considered to be the proper
standard, and the secretary was instructed to writ* to that efTect. asking
for some improvement.
The secretary was also instructed to

Few communities become
great by pure accident but
many become greal by the activity, vision and enterprise ot
adventurous spirits. The days
ot geographical discovery are
almost past, but new fields of
discovory are still awaiting the
advent of man. Especially is
this true in the realms oi' commerce and industry.
Cranbroolt has a wonderful
opportunity of fourfold character, A great railroad corporation has seen lit to make Ihis
one of its centres. In all probability this is true because of
the outstanding features of this
district. These features constitute the real opportunity before
this community. Cranbrook is
the centre of a tremendous lumbering district, and an even
greater region of untold mineral wealth. Added to these is
an agricultural field of no mean
extent scarcely touched as yet
in its development. The efforts
of the prospectors of Cranbrook district to bring the mineral wealth of the community
hefore the residents of Cranbrook is also praiseworthy. In
due time it will be recognized
that the mineral wealth of
the district constitutes Ihe
greatest opportunity for material development. Experts in
the field are emphatic and unanimous in stating Ihat only the
fringe of the untold wealth has
been touched.
Much more activity however
must be shown toward Ihis
promising field. Fortunately
or unfortunately, there is i
measure of risk. The science of
geology and mining surveys
help considerably, but the element of chance becomes almost
dominant In many cases and
respects. Systematic prospecting however must come more
into practice, and every encouragement should be given lo
those who seek to find the treasures of the earth. Their
discoveries will bring, not only
to themselves bul to countless
others, material gain and benefits.
In all publicity efforts more
attention should be given lo
this opportunity for growth and
development. Pressure should
be brought to bear on provincial
and federal governments st
that this territory may ne at
completely surveyed from geological nnd milling aspects as it
is possible. Information will
then he available, for thc pros
pector an investor, without
which the work or progress will
be but spasmodic. Organlza
tions like Ihe Prospectors and
Hoard of Trade are doing much
toward this end.
nation? The owner is entitled
lo protection, if he is still a
contributor to the income of
the city. On the other hand,
can pressure be brought to make
these houses fit for habitation?
Possibly some organization,
municipal or otherwise, could
conceive a plan whereby this
work could be done in a collective and co-operative fashion
I'or tiie good of all concerned,
or action could be taken to compel owners to remove delapid-
ated property if past hope of repair. These conditions may be
ncidental to new communities,
but one is staggered at even
approximate figures representing values which have become
ti sheer loss in this way.
A correspondent ibis week
comments on the housing situation ns it applies to Cranbrook. A survey of of the town
reveals that there are many
houses, constituting In the
aggregate value a considerable
sum, whicli have become an
economic loss to the owners
and the community as a whole.
it is the experience of all newcomers to the city that Cranbrook ranks as a most difficult
place regarding the securing of
jiousing. In some cases the
premises could be made habitable with a comparatively small
outlay, windows, doors and
paint being the prime requisite
to make them so. In other cases properly has been wantonly
destroyed, but apparently no effort has been made to bring
the guilt home to the offenders.
Is lt possible to remedy ihis slt-
Inlerest at the provincial cap-
pilal at present centres round
the moderation bill brought tn
by the government. The government admits through the attorney-general that it has its
bauds full, and that the task is
i little more than it bargained
for. "Bargained'.' is the right
word. Before dissolution the
government must, have been
aware of the actual difficulties
in the way of liquor control, but
it allowed a proposition to go
before tbe people without de-
claring that proper control
would be impossible unless the
government had the absolute
power to prohibit importation,
I'he difficulties in the way then
still exist, and now that the issue has to be faced in the bringing down of a bill, the government has been compelled to
confess at large what it must
have known in secret last fall—
bat without the special aid of
the federal government the control of liquor importation is in
reality beyond provincial pow-
rs. The Ottawa authorities
can scarcely be blamed in the
matter, inasmuch as the British North America Act protects
the rights of the provinces in
the matter of interprovincial
trade. The Doherty act has
been ciletl whereby B. C. could
meet the situation, hut the attorney-general has stated on
the floor of the house that in r»-
alily this act provides no solution for the dilemma in which
the government finds itself plated. It can only be invoked
where the imported liquor is
lo be used as a basis for illegal
traffic. Such proof would be
difficult to secure, and once the
liquor is landed in the province
Ihere would be little trouble in
disposing of it to those who
seek to get hold of liquor
through illicit channels. All
this has been clearly admitted
by the government within the
last few days.
The task for the government
is a difficult one indeed, but il
is itself solely responsible for
lhe situation. Both the premier and his legal aide have declared that the plebiscite res-
suit was a surprise to them, and
regret exceedingly that this bu
siness is forced upon them. One
thing ought certai nly be recognized, and that is that the gov
emmeni failed to inform the
electorate of the true situation.
If the people had been informed
lasl fall that the province could
nol control importation the
verdict might have been different. Surely it was their bust
ness to get this Information
nnd pass it on. It will be remembered that this very question was dealt with in the light
ot tlie Information now supplied by Mr. Farris in these columns as well as in many other
journals, but it was discounted
by many because of the silence
of the provincial authorities
We maintain now, as we did
then, that no government can
control the sale of liquor if it
cannot control importation,
and the frank but delayed confessions of the attorney-general reveal the miserable predicament in which the government
is now placed.

The feeling in Canada was ngainBt
tho custom. It grew rapidly in
ingth until July *', 1703, when the
Importation of black mon for service
within the colony wns forbidden hy
an net ot parliament, Tliis was the
beginning of tlte uui of the trade in
tlie land for colored men then in bondage wero hehi under certain conditions until they died. Hut no more
luves were permitted Within the now
.Vs years passed the feeling in Canada ngiiinst holding men in bondage
increased nnd there were many who
looked with horror upon the action of
the southern statis of America which
held thousands of blacks lu rigorous
bondage and degradation. So It Is
not surprising thnt the Dominion be-
inme the .Mecca of all the slaves who
ouhl break their chains and escape
northward. The colored colony north
of thn Grenl Lakes was constantly Increased hy the arrival of fugatlvos
who had succeeded in getting away
from their masters. And at last when
war came between the northern and
southern parts of the United States
with the slavery question us nn issue
there were thousands of young Canadians who expressed their views
against the horrible custom by enllst-
'ng in tlie northern ranks and risking
life and limb in the attempt to crush
tbe long established custom of slavery.
Mr. A. B. Smith, secretary of the
Partners' Institute, reports having received from the Department of Agriculture at Victoria copies of two
bulletins, which ought to be of more
or less special interest lo farmers generally in this section. One is concerned with sheep raising In B.C.. nnd
tlie other with potato growing in this
province. This latter is an especially
well gotten up booklet of more than
seventy pages, and is entitled. "Tho
Potato in British Columbia." A copy
has also reached the office desk, and
with its profuse illustrations it can
be recommended to anyone who
wishes to take up the cultivation of
tbe potato along approved lines. Copies of the bulletin can he obtained by
handing in one's name to Mr. Smith,

method of bulletin distribution hns

copies should therefore be made to
A credit man who gets the wrong
slant on his job can do more damage
in one day than a dozen salesmen can

The reason is that most credit men,
like most policemen and all detectives,
have reached the conclusion thai all
men aro crooked.
As a matter of fact, statistics show
that about !>U per cent, of the people
are honest.

Must Face It
One of tbe problems arising by the
advent of women in British juries is
tha propriety or otherwise, to say
nothing of tlte embarrassment, of a I
man lawyer presenting his arguments
in somo sordid divorce case to a jury
of women, And yet women must fare,
this responsibility or admit that after
all thero are limitations to their usefulness in public service. Either they
must face the unpleasant things or
forfeit the right to serve in tbe higher places in British jurisprudence as
they hope to do, A woman judge or
magistrate would bave to listen to unsavory details iu many a court case.—

Don't Encourage Defiance
"I sometimes feel very discouraged
for children whoso parents uphold
their whims to defy tlie teacher, rush
into print to find out whether or not
school boards can compel the child
to do thus and so, and try to keep
ill feeling uppermost. It is quite
hurniful enough to teach him (by
upholding him) that school work is
unnecessary, but the graver danger
is in teaching defiance of authority,
Tiie child tiiat defies authority with
the sanction of his parents goes ou
the wny revolting, ignoring and defying until he may become an anarchist.
Such things as orations, or literary
oxcerciaes of any kind, drills, etc., are
a proper part of nny one's education.

"The Wnrd af nn Englishman"
We ought long ago to have written
off our wnr debts owed to ns by our
allies, nnd every montii that passes
shows how much friction and bitterness will be Involved by any attempt
to collect them. On the other hand,
all tbe traditions of British financial
prestige surely demand that we
should, at any sacrifice, meet our own
promises to pay- Suggestions have
lately been made In the daily press
thnt we should propose to America
that she should take payment of our
debt to her In the shape of our allies'
debts to us. This is not the way In
which the 'word of an Englishman'
has been made proverbial throughout
the world as an expression of scrupulous honesty and as the best asset we
own. America lent money to us. and
we have to pay it. To nsk her to
'read through* us to debtors wlio are
less able to pay Is to promise a composition, nnd, weakened ns we are by

that point, or anywhere near it.—

Editor tho Herald:
Sir—While looking for a house to
rent in Cranbrook last Autumn a
friend of the writer's was astounded
nt tlie relatively large number of vacant houses that have been rendered
useless by acts of violence.
Houses that otherwise would be
rentable dwellings but tor tbe fact
that the windows, and in some places
the doors also bave been smashed,
cause some localities to look as if
the city was one locatel in France after being bombarded by the Huns.
Tbe attendant, when asked as to who
did all this destruction, had but one
reply, "tbe boys." Now, as the police
seem to assume no responsibility for
the guardianship of unoccupied houses
it. is rather a disturbing fact if householders, who are also ratepayers, have
to bear tho loss without redress of
having unoccupied dwellings or other
buildings smashed and polluted by
boys of irresponsible years with tbe
Instincts of tbo Hun. If people have
to hoard up tlieir bouses like barns
when going away, or leave a watchman to guard their property in their
absence, will such a state of nffairs
not be n deterrent to the growtli of
Cranbrook? 1 hope sir, the movement
of "dad moels bis lad" will have some
bearing and results on this question
In Cranhrook. Still a great many people will bo of the opinion Ihat the
good, old fashioned spanking bee Ib
still the proper medicine for a bad

Freight rates on liquor in Canada
will he increased shortly. Tlie board
of railway commissioners has granted
permission to the Canadian Freight
association to raise the classification
of liquor to double first class in less
than car-load lots, Tho liquor dealers are expected to bear tlie Increased
cost. No increase is allowed on native Ontario wines, however.
Tho board's order Which Is signed
hy tho chief commissioners. Hon. F.
U. Carvel!- sets forth the reasons for
grunting (he increase and adds:
"As tho liquor bUS-.ne.SB will In the
future be bandied very largely by tin
provinces, somo of whom nre already
making very handsome profits out of
the business, tlie remainder of whom
probably expect to do so, I am of the
opinion that some further protection
can be given the transportation companies without increasing the eost to
the consumor and yet leave a very
handsome profit to the public bodies
who are handling the traffic.
"For these reasons 1 think the application should be granted, with lhe
reservation, however, that there shall
be no increase on native Ontario
wines and owner's risk of breakage^
shall be eliminated."
At the hearing in Ottawa on December 21 last, counsel showed that the
Canadian Pacific Railway alone in
1920 lost $127,000 In liquor claims, besides spending $123,000 ln policing
the traffic. The total loss of $250,000
represents 16 per cent, of tho total
loss and damage claims. Tlie other
railways suffered equally, and conditions are said to bo growing worse
instead of better. The board therefore judged that the rallwayH were

Farmer Leader
Speaks at Ottawa
Crenir Makes Good Impression
Wllh   itevien   of   General
Conditions Faring Country
OTTAWA. Tin* upeocll or Mr. ('re-
mr, iiu. National PrajroAlve leader,
wns tho most notable event of tho
wook lu Parliament, It was notable,
Uot bo much for lho fact (hat he made
11, us tor the tact that it was the expression of Iho views of n large and
growing element In tho political life
of tin' country. Recent by-elections
havo demonstrated that the National
Progressives are n factor to be reckoned with at tbe polling booth.
Some men command attention
th rough their personal talents und
qualities. In parliament it sometimes
happens that a member will in commanding attention through his utterances rival a prime minister, even
though he lias hardly an avowed follower in tho house. Crerar does not
attract or hold attention ns be did
last week, through his eloquence, for
though now a good speaker, ho lias
neither the incislveness, nor the argumentative ability of the prime min
ister, nor tho general power of expression possessed by Mr, Mackenzie
King. He possesses few of the tricks
of the orator, though at the same time
ho is ready to retort. If a straight
question ls put to blm, it invariably
brings a straight answer; there Is
little of tiie lawyer-like method of
evasion about him. His candor, and
the ease with which lie meets and accommodates himself to the average
man is ono of his strong assets.
Crerar's speech was notable, not because of Its form, aB because of its
matter. Thero is no question about it
being meaty. He gave both the House
and the public something to chew upon. While declaring thnt he would
support tho amendment, he was also
mindful of tbo fact that the buslnesa j
of lho country lias to b carried on.
and he guvo his reasons why
thought there wuro butter methods of
lolng It than thoso now in vogue. In
a word hu exhibited a practicality thai
mado the memburs think, oven If they
.lid not altogether agreo witli lilm.
Tiio explanation Ol this Is that Crerar Ik a man of Important business hilt rests. Any mun who lu president, as
ho Is, of a $:!D.nun.lino trading corpora
tlou, ean sit down and exchange business views with Lord SbauglinesKy,
B, W. Beatty, Sir Vincept Meredith.
Sir Edmund Walker, Sir Charles Gordon,-Sir Edward Kemp, Lloyd Harris,
or any other of our financial and industrial magnates, and bis views will
bo respected.
After all the real problems before
Canadians today are those of a business character, of producing and distributing, buying and selling and
making these operations pay. Indeed,
that ls the world-wide problem. Canada has enjoyed wonderful prosperity
since 1914. Canadians have been on a
kind of business spree. But the spree
is over. In an industrial, commercial
and finnnclal sense, tills Is our "morning after." We have more factories
titan we can keep going; we have
more  people in our cities  than  we

can keep employed. Exports have
soared but thoy are now falling. So
thu generul result is business contusion. Tho real problem before tho
country Is to straighten out tliis situation, and It Ih a much bigger and
more* complex problem than the reabsorbing of the soldiers Into civil
Ute, and Crerar evidently realizes
this. Crerar's solution of these prob
lems muy not be the last word on tlie
subject, but it is obvious that a big
business man who talks about these
matters is bound to get a tiearlng,
and so tlie House sat up and listened
attentively to what tlie National Pro
gressive leader had to say.
Naturally ho attracted great importance to agriculture, contending that
If conditions ure not favorable to the
development of this industry the coun
try cannot prosper as it should; he
also holds that aa conditions become
more normal, the greater will the
country's dependence on this industry
become, lie contends thut the real
problem In trade Is now one of tlie
markets. Ho says It was eusy for
Canada to Hell when Europe waa ont
of tho market, but now she fs becoming a competitor) and In certain lines,
must he reckoned with.
Crerar also holds that Canada cannot expect to sell nearly tlie same volume of goods oversens that she lias
been doing, unless, of course, new
markets develop in the Orient. The
exchanges, he contends, are against
it. Britain can't afford to pay Canada moro for wheat, or other things,
than she can buy them for In other
parts of tho world, which fact will
probably keep down our sales of
wheat to her. So this, he contends,
points to the necessity of pushing
trade where the exchanges favor Canada.
He holds that the American market is one of the utmost importance
to Canada for it now takes 50 per
cent, of our exports. He contends
that a great mistake has been made
In not appointing an ambassador at
Washington, and he points out that
owing to the absence of Sir Auckland
Geddes overseas, there has been no
one In the United States to represent
Canadian interests at this most critical time. As to the difficulty of securing a capable ambassador, he says,
"If you can get capable men to represent you at the Peace Conference, you
can get them for the position of ambassador."
On the subject of promoting trade,
Crerar's attitude Is that of the business man, holding that if you want
business you must go after it. He
claims that the United States is selling the great volume of goods it is
in this country because It lias over
100 persons reporting on trade conditions; while on the other hand he
says that Canada has not a single official doing this in the United States.
His conclusion is that If Uncle Sam
finds it profitable to keep over 100
men looking after the Canadian market of 9,000,000, it would be wise for
Canada to have an equal number
keeping her posted on the market of
over 105,000,000.
Doherty ond Stevens for the government, and Lemleux and Beland for
the Liberals made notable -contributions to the debate. Lemieux seems to
think that Canadn never would have
an ambassador at Washington, but
Doherty said we would; that the British government offered no objection
and that it was only a matter of getting tho right man. Doherty also assured tho House that there was no
need to got excited over the Prime
Minister's conference ln London dur-,
ing June; that it was only for the
purpose of talking over a few matters; that nothing would be binding
on Canada until Parliament ngreed
to it.
Crerar's suggestion of a five year
naval holiday, judging by the applause
ft evoked, is bound to become popular, nnd ft is quite probable that the
government may fall In. with It. Of
course it will naturally desire to reserve to itself the right of action as
it may see fit; but as tho Idea of a
naval holiday is popular, and every
dollar will ho required* to make ends
meet, tho probability is thnt the Prime
Minister will go to London prepared
to back the proposal. The arguments
in favor of such a holiday are the
moro weighty, bocnuse oven If the
first Jellicne proposals, which were
understood to contemplate an annual
expenditure of over $25,000,000 a year
wero adopted there ls no assurance
that tiiey would get the country anywhere.
Itcorgnntzatlon talk has pretty well
died down. The truth Is that while the
desirability of reorganizing the Cabinet Is admitted, still the present Is
not considered opportune for this purpose. In tho dentil of Capt. Tom Wallace the government's majority has
again been reduced, while Mr. Croth-
ers' condition is such that his attendance on the House for some time ls
considered Improbable. Besides, the
health of several other government
supporters is in a very precarious
state. So with death creating bo
many vacancies it is improbable that
other seats will be pprposely opened.

High School,
Cranbrook, British Columbia,
Marcli 5th, 1921.
Dear Friend:
Our principal gave me your letter
and asked me to reply to it. I should
like to tell you something about the
country in whicli I live.
Cranbrook is* a beautiful little city
in the EaBt Kootenay district, about
600 miles east of the Pacific coast,
and 50 miles north nf the international boundary line between Canada and
the United States. It has a population of approximately 4000 inhabitants, and Is a divisional point of the
Canudlan Pacific Railway. It Is located on a plain about twelve miles
square, and tn surrounded by the majestic Rocky Mountains on the east,
and the Selkirk Mountains on the
west, the latter are of a lower altitude
than the former, but are none the less
The East Kootenay district Is nearly 200 miles square, and is divided Into three districts, Cranbrook, Columbia and Fernle. The climate in this
part of British Columbia is ideal.
Spring opens up about the middle of
March, after a winter of invigorating
sports such as skating, snowshoelng,
taboggoning and ski-lng, and brings
with It a long summer of warm days
and cool nights. Our summer sports
consist of baseball, football, golf, tennis, lacrosse and many others.
The principle Industries of the
Kootenay are mining, lumbering and
agriculture. Tiie moat important ores
found are gold, copper, silver-lead and
coal. The Sullivan mine, a short distance from Cranbrook, is the largest
silver-lead producer in the Dominion
of Canada. Lumbering Is carried on
extensively, there being about twenty-
five mills ln the district, and some
cutting as much as 175,000 feet per
day. There are larger tracts of land
in this country which are just awaiting cultivation. The provincial government has an Irrigation project under way, which, if carried out will
bring the agricultural possibilities of
tbe district to tlie fore.
The scenery of the Kootenay district is unsurpassed by any on the
North American continent. Innumerable lakes and rivers abound, the majority of which are easily accessible,
by beautiful motor roads. The district has rightly been termed "The
Fisherman's Paradise," as the elusive
trout and salmon, great numbers of
which are in the lakes and streams,
become an easy prey to the skilful
angler. The hunter la also assured of
good sport In the way of large game.
The chief large game bagged in the
district are bear, deer, ctk and moose.
In short tlie Kootenay district
stands second to none in the matters
of scenery and genuine wholesome
I hope on some future occasion you
may have the pleasure of visiting our
province and seeing for yourself the
beauties of the East Kootenay district.

Takes Unusual Attitude In Ascribing Business Slump to
Lack of Religion
R. W. Babson, of Chicago, well
known buslnesa magnet and industrial
expert, recently addressed the advertising council of the Chicago Chamber
of Commerce on the business situation generally as regards conditions
throughout the continent. As reported
In "Printer's Ink," a little trade Journal, he guve expression to somo unusual sentiments In his analysis of
tlie situation, which will possibly hear
further investigation.
Mr. Babson," It is stated, "urged
tlie advertising men to take tlie same
stand toward tlieir employers and
clients as other professionals, such as
attorneys end doctors, and insist upon
rigid adherence to prescribed methods
a necessary means of increasing
quality,  production  and.distribution..
The development of national advertising by manufacturers was cited as an
example of the forward trond of Uio
times as they are learning to advertise when they need business.
"Mr. Babson maintained that the
country's business Is fundamentally
sound and that the present depression
should be considered as purely temporary. He thought the depression
would endure for possibly two or
three years with a general return to
prosperity. Tills gradual readjustment
he said would be much sounder business than In case of a rapid rise.
"Prohibition, ln Mr. Bauson's opinion, la one of tlie greatest Blngle factors contributing to the fundamental
soundness of the country. Three billion dollars represented the saving-*
accruing from this source. This amount, hitherto spent on alcohol. Is
now deposited ln savings accounts.'

Mr. Babson decried any attempt or
possibility ot change In existing liquor
"Mr. Babson made the interesting!
statement that the present business
slump was caused largely by lack of
religion. "The need of tlie hour." he'
asserted, "is to get employers and;
wage earners to give their hearts to
Ood. Business depression can be av-:
oided, but only by redirecting the
mlndB of your people to the need of
Integrity, honesty and thrift.

Lho story of tlie games as follows:
Ono of the prettiest anu peppiest
basketball games seen here this season was witnessed by about 450 fans
at the Central school on Saturday
night, when thc Nelson basket lossers
pullod down two decisive victories
over the Cranbrook visitors. In tlie
first the Nelson high school girls
trimmed the Cranbrook high school
girls' quintette to the tune of 26
points to 13. The second resulted In
a victory tor the local Y.M.CA. senior mens' team over the Cranbrook
Athletic club by a score of 37 points
to 19.
After tlie games the players and
officials, the Nelson Symphony orchestra and a number of Cranhrook
visitors were the guests of tlie Y.M.
CA. girls' athletic club at an informal dance, when refreshments were
served. Music was supplied by the
high school orchestra.
All kinds of excitement reigned as
tlie fans foregathered and waited expectantly for tlie games while listening to the latest popular hits played
by the Nelson Symphony orchestra.
At 8.30 o'clock Miss Cranbrook and
Miss Nelson smiled at each other
across the floor, and then got to
grips. Past and furious went the
play witli swifl passes, smart checking and desperate efforts to score.
Cranhrook made the first point on a
penalty throw, which was the signal
for a big crowd of local boys who
hud taken on themselves the office
of rooters for the visitors to lot
loose with a deafening roar. The
home team came back witli a field
score establishing a lead that the
visitors never tallied. Tlieir attempts
wero innumerable but most of their
first period throws were faulty.
In lho second half the visitors held
their own and piled up for the period
an even score with the home girls.

Starting off at a furious pace, the

minutes without a letup In the
speed. Within a few minutes It waa
noticeable that tho local boys were
playing a game In which individual
play was completely merged in brilliant combination work. Not a man
on the lineup could" be picked out
as a star, so nicely wus tho play
limed. G. McTier of Cranbrook played an excellent game at guard; Crowe

VICTORIA.—A division which allowed that tiie government cannot rely
absolutely on. a majority of more than
four, occurred in tbe legislature lasl
Thursday in connection with the discussion of unemployment.
The motion as finally carried declared "That tliis committee approves
of the relief measures adopted hy tlie
government in dealing with unemployment, and pledges tts support to tiie
government In respect of such further
measures as may be necessary for the
government to take in dealing with the
present unemployment situation."
This was carried by a vote of 23 to
19. This minority consisted or thirteen Conservatives and six independents. There were four absentees, the

Menzies. Assuming that Mr. Pooley
would have voted with his fellow Conservatives and Mr. Menzies with his

During the war the question was
often raised—"What has happened
to the Canadian Paciflc Observation
Cars on the Austrian State Railways"? On tue cessation of hotilities
it transpired that they had been used
by the Austrian War Offlce as Red
Cross Cars, and on the signing 6f
peace they were handed back to the
Canadian Pacific in fairly good shape.
It will be remembered that before
tlie war these. Observation Cars were
operated by thc Canadian Pacific on

States Railways from the Arlberg to
Vienna, am; from Innsbruck to
Trieste, whore they were extremely

Naturally the operation of thrse

continuation of prospectors' meeting
i    Some little time wus spent In look-
i inn over the ore specimens ou exhi-
! bition. those of local origin, arranged
down the centre of the big table, especially attracting a good deal of at-
j tentlon. Many prospectors and otlitrs
' also took advantage of lhe opportunity afforded to become personally acquainted with Mr. Langley.
In the Masonic Hall, where the
prospectors were to be the guests of
the Cranbrook Retail Merchants' Association, about sixty sat down to the
tables in due course, and iliis number
was increased by latc.cu.iern to the
extent of a dozen or no.
The meal was an excellent one, Alex. Hurry heing responsible for the
arrangements. A nice light luncheon
waa provided, varied y t not elaborate, and well served. Pull Justice
yas done to the repast by those taking part.
The Inner man having been satisfied, Mr. E. H. McPhee, as president
of the Retail Merchants' Association,
called for order, and announced a
program of a few speeches. In a few
introductory remarks, Mr. McPhee
spoke of the part of the prospector
played in the development of the district, and alao paid a tribute to the
sterling work being accomplished in
the Interests of the prospectors by
Mr. Langely.
Mr. J. P. Fink, the first speaker
called upon by the chairman, said that
on behalf of the Board of Trado he
was ready to extend to the prospectors
all the assistance possible, and to cooperate with them at all times. He
referred to the vital relationship between the prospectors and the business
men generally, and stated that the latter were ready and willing to stand
back of the prospectors and to work
together with them.
Mr. Chas. Evans, president of the
Prospectors' Association, when called
upon to speak on behalf of the prospectors, made a brief address tint
went right to the point from that
standpoint. He said that if the mining men got the right kind of support

in tholr efforts, lt would tie possible
to imt a different aspect on this valley within twenty yeara. The population wus going to grow, and new
means of employment were needed,
which more extensive mining developments would provide. Mr. Evans
T-tfurred also to tbe eelf-sacrlficlng
life of tlie prospector—how he laid the
foundation stones of bigger things
to follow, as it were. The prospector
wus seldom tlte man wbo got the returns out of the mining game. Nature
seems tu have set a price which must
be paid before access can be had to
her chambers of mineral wealth. Tbe
prospector who failed was paying the
price, but was his life lost, or was he
not rather working for the benefit of
those to follow, a forerunne! whose
work made things easier foi thoBft
wiio wtre to come on tlu .-.cene later?
Umklng ut tliis Immense Held It was
Impossible to dream what the future
hud in store for the district. All petty
fjuarelUng between different Interests
of tliis section ought to be forgotten-
thero wus plenty here for us til—let
us go after it. Mr. Evans' remarks
wero Bcnslble und courageous, tnd by
Uiolr earnestness mudc a deep Impression upon his hearers.
Mr. (J. J. Spreull, when called upon,
said ho was glad to be present, tnd ts
tho chairman of the mining committee
of the Hoard or Trade, he was anxious
and willing to work In co-operation
with the prospectors, and to encourage mining In every way. He thought
It was essential to get together tnd
try and develop some tilings a little
further—make them something more
than mere prospectB.
Mr. O. Hogarth, while professing
himself to be entirely unprepared to
say anything, yet nevertheless was
able to make some most Interesting
references to the early days In this
section, particularly tn reference to
mining development—the beginnings
of the Sullivan Mine In 1892, and the
early work In that section with the
North Star an dottier properties.
Col. C. H. Pollem, when called upon,
made some reference to the mining
gathering he had attended the previous week In Spokane as the representative from this section, In charge of
the Must Kootenay display. He had
come in contact wtth many big mining men there, keen and astute men,
and found a keen Interest taken ln
this district. Incidently he referred
to the fact that most of the big men
In the mining game started as prospectors, and In the sr.me way, most
of the big* properties that were In
prominence today had been a long
tlmo coming into notice. Referring to
the present apparent disorganized condition of tbe metal markets, Col. Pollem saw In that state of affairs an
Indication that there must be more
getting together on the part of the
mining Interests to arrive at more
stable conditions. He also paid t
warm tribute to the work of Mr. Lang*-
ley, and forecasted for the future t
magnificent mining industry for the
East Kootenay section,
Mr. J. P. Huchcroft, secretary of
the Prospectors' Association called upon later in the evening, said that mining had been under some serious handicaps ln this section tn the past. The
people of this section seemed to be
too close up to be able to estimate the
resources of the district properly. He
referred to the extremely varied resources of the district, not only fn
such ores as stiver, gold, lead, sine,
ex., that were undergoing some meis-
i *e of development, but also In sue!*
minerals as feldspar, gypsum, graph'
ite, white marble, manganese, Ume,
Umctlte, and others that were not tt
piet-ent undergoing any development
Mi. lluchcroft also re'errid tu tht
string possibility of a fifty ton will
going u? on Ferry Or).: this summer,
and also the proposed steel Industry
for this province, in which tbe East
Kootenay, with Its vast Iron resources,
was vitally Interested.
Mr. Langley was also called upon
for a few words, and said he was very
grateful for tbe cordial reception
which had been tendered him here,
and he was prepared to his utmost for
the mining Interests ot the future. He
referred also to the hard life of the
prospector, who was often without resources In the shape of money, tnd he
urged the business men to stand behind the man who worked in the Mill.
He spoke In very complimentary terms
of the Prospectors' Association, describing It as the possible nucleus of
a very fine body.
Among other sneakers during the
evening were Messrs. 0, J. Little, E.
J. Dinning, O. F. Marsh, W. H. Wilson, C. R. Ward, D. Mcintosh, John
Leask and R. E. Beattie. The gather'
lug broke up with the singing of the
National Anthem.
Many expressions of satisfaction
have been heard at the heartiness of
the "get-together" spirit between the
prospectors and business men as evinced on Monday evening, and It ts evld
ent that a certain amount of good
feeling and understanding Is worked
up at such gatherings.   There Is an-

A lady in tho city reports a somewhat flagrant case of pilfering from lu
front of her house last Saturday night
by which she ls the loser or two gcod
rugs — though it Is hoped that as the
case Is brought to light the missing
property will find its way back to the
rightful owner. u appear*; tiiat on
Smtuicay afterno/i, during the course
,'f housework four rugs were put rut
ii. v. .nt of the house This Id not la
.'self nn unusual procedure, but It ap-
i ears ihat on account of being Interrupted in her work, It did not occur to
the busy housewife to bring the rugs
in when she otherwise would have
and so tbey were left outside tiie house
all night. In the morning tliere were
but two left. Indications seem to
point to tlie fact thai the purlolner is
someone wbo Knows good rugs when
tbey see them, for the two taken are
really good rugs of fine quality, whllo
those left were only more or less of
medium quality. A broad hint has
been known to be efficacious in similar cases, aud it Is hoped thut without any further ado the missing rugs
may find tholr way back to tholr right,
ful owner.

(Experimental Farms Note)
j Good returns are obtained from
[keeping bees in Canada, the condl-
I tions ln many parts of the country
being particularly favorable for honey
production. Jfet much uncertainty exists, and misconceptions have arisen
as to the returns to be expected. One
sometimes hears that a colony of bees
has produced ln one season four or
five hundred pounds of honey. Knowing that honey Is worth 20 to 30 celtts
a pound, and that one man can easily
look after about a hundred colonies,
one Is apt to form the conclusion that
money is very easily made in keeping
bees. Such yields, however, are exceptional, and are the result of a
combination of fortunate circumstances, abundant flowers of alsike and
white clover, firewood, or other Important honey plants, a particularly
industrious colony, a well trained and
experienced beekeeper, and, above all,
favorable weather. They cannot be
obtained from every hive, nor can they
be repeated year after year. Sometimes, ;i year of failure follows a year
of plenty.
To get reliable figures It Ib necos-
snry to average the returns from the
colonies In the apiary for a number of
years. This has been done since 1912
on ull the Dominion Experimental
Farms scattered throughout Cannda
that keep bees, now numbering seventeen. The latest figures Bhow that the
averago annual yield of honey has varied from 18 iKiunds per colony In the
least profitable apiary to KM pounds
per colony lu tho mosl profitable
apiary, The average animal production for all the aplarioit waB 63 pound.!
per colony, which Is high enough to
I hinko a very satisfactory profit. Thoso
| figures indicate tho Imporlnuco of
good management, the return of only
1 Iff pounds having been due (o Inex-
| porlonoe, They also point to the Importance of local conditions of flora,
climate, and soli. There are many
places where double tlie average crop
can he obtained, nnd theso places are
not confined to the well settled or
southern regions of Canjyla. Beekeepers nre sometimes found succeeding in a region or location capable of
comparatively low production, whllo
few or no been arc kept ln many a
region or location where the conditions indlcato high returns.
In order to learn about the locality
conditions that favor high production,
and to help beekeepers to study these
and find out what returns they are
getting and may expect, forms for
making apiary returns are being published, and may be obtained on application to the Bee Division, Central
Experimental Farm, Ottawa. The
only condition requested Is that a duplicate copy of the report be returned.
The returns will bo looked over by
an expert, who will make suggestions
and give any Information relative to
th« imfwl oi tha anbury, ate
