Industry and a little coal mining to
keep it going. Cranhrook has always relied on a little mineral mining and the lumber industry to make
things hum. Lethbrldge was held

the virgin soil in this district could

Cranbrook, the   visitor suspects,    is
urseri with a few of thc same cotnr.
Time—a few yeuis—served to eon-
found that kind of a knocker around
Lethbrldge und today he is scarcer
even than a snowball' in .July. History will repeat itself arouiHl Cranbrook and in a tew vents Cranhrook
will uot know itself.
The city at present strikes the visitor as being somewhat old nnd dirtv
looking. Probably it has u quick
nnd etlieient lire department and, although a wooden city in a timlrt-red
country, has never had a "wipe out"
hy lire. On Rio other band the main
streets are nut marie hideous with
Chinese shacks and almost every
building is two or three stories high.
The stores, too, nre all natily and
nodernly dnssed—;ui evidence ot the
nterprise of Cranio oo!.'.s merchants
iiul—on the side—an indication that
there are one or more up-to-date progressive newspapers in the city, for
good stoics an.) good newspapers go
hand in hand in anv place. All that
is nerded Is paint—an organized campaign with the paint brush in the
business section of the city.
In thc residential parts'ot the city
—in contrast to the business—upon
linker Hill and neighborhood, particularly, are a number of beautiful
residences that cause a l.ethbridgeite
turn green with envy. In fact
there are onlv two things in which
crftnbrook has I.-'tiduid-.re skinned,
and in both these she can give Leth-
htidgv cards and spades—hotels    and
ie residences.
Crnnbrook is whal is called a wide-
open town—perhaps that is whv hei
lintel accommodation, particularly in
the higher priced Imstclries, is so
vastly superior tn the average in the
prairie provinces. The bars where
liquor is sold remain open all night
and all tiny Sunday; and neater,
cleaner or more orderly or respectable places—In contrast to the modern prairie saloon—than the bar-
rooms of Cranhrook cannot be im-
aglned, Abuse nf liquor, at least on
the Saturdav and Sundav when the
writer was there, made itselt con-
pieil-rils by its absence. IHtlO, that
ivory dav sight in Alberta and Saskatchewan, the wet sloppv barrooms,
[nt kiit witli a struggling mass ot
more nr less drunken humanity, making ha\ while the sun shines hv
pouring down enouch liquor while the
bars are open to last them the ten
oi twelve hour* when they are closed.
\l! ol which would ' seem to suggest
that drunkenness Increases just in
proportion to the restrictions that
arc placed on tho liquor trade ond upon the liberty of the Individual; that
the real retnedv for all evils is more
freedom—not less of it. Although

.Mr. Watts, in his enthusiasm over
thi- future agricultural development
of the district, conns second onlv t-o

lumbering business he conducts a

William Hamilton returned las'.
Monday from attending tbe meeting
if tbe ('entral Farmers' Institute uf
be province at Victoria as the ible-
ate from the franbrook-Keniii-
l-'armers' Institute. There were a
larije number of delegates present
ia (net reports weie received from
mTV institute except Bella Co-da,
Richlhond, Maple Uidge and Sh.iwni-
gan. The membership of the I'ann-
Institute has increased from
_.U'I iu 1SMI7 tn 3,2'i0 in 1008. »'he
number of institutes has been added
to by four, making a total of li'iS.
I'pwards of 2li,"fl(l bulletins ml ic-
ports have lieen sent out during Ihe
year to members of ihe Institutes.
There is a growing tendency in make
Farmers' Institutes something more
than organizations for the purpose of
bearing lecturers sent out by thc
deuartment, they should be fully representative of the best thou-cht ami
agricultural practice in their respective districts, lt is understood thai
in the near future a college of agriculture will be established in connection with the University of British Columbia and in connect ion therewith will be an experimental station. Mr. Hamilton says that the
inspection of imported fruit will bo
rigidly enforced, as will also thi'
lestruction of noxious weeds. A
full report of the procee-dinzs will be

received   Information enough to just*
ill) it in the belief tbat there will be
ta large numbel uf private residences
erected this season. The demand fur
a better class ot homes iu L'ranurooK
is growing and lu consequence there
will be a material addition along ibe

The World Before Your
Eyes at the Edison
TN the following; article, from the pen of Professor Frederick Starr, of Chicago University, is pictured
^ exactly what an up-to-date moving picture entertainment does—what the EDISON THEATRE,
CRANBROOK, is doing. Like everything else, animated photography is being improved day by day,
and to keep up with the times modern methods must be used. This is the reason that the management of
the EDISON have procured the MOST UP-TO-DATE MACHINE in the market, so as
to make the pictures there exhibited a little better than the common kind.   Professor Starr says:—
ri

more than a traveller could see at the cost of thou,
lands of dollars and years of journey.
NEITHER VOU NOR I FULLY REALIZE WHAT THE
MOVING PICTURE HAS MEANT TO US, AND WHAT
IT IS GOING TO MEAN. AS CHILDREN WE USED TO
DREAM OF A JOURNEY ON A MAGICIAN'S CARPET
TO THE LEGENDARY LANDS, BUT WE CAN RUB OCR
OWN EYES NOW AND WITNESS MORE TREMENDOUS
MIRACLES THAN ALADDIN COULD HAVE BY RUBBING HIS FAIRY LAMP. BUT WE'RE SO MATTER-
OF-FACT THAT WE NEVER THINK OF IT THAT WAY.
WE'RE LIVING AT A MILE-A-SECOND GAIT IN THE
SWIFTEST EPOCH OF THE WORLD'S TROGRESS-IN
THE AGE OF INCREDIBILITIES COME TRUE. WE
FLY THROUGH TIIE AIR-CHAT WITH OUR FRIENDS
IN PARIS UY SQUIRTING A, LITTLE SPARK FROM A
POLE ON THE SHORE OF THE ATLANTIC TO
ANOTHER POLE ON THE OTHER SIDE, AND SO WE
TAKE AS A MATTER OF COURSE THAT WHICH OUR
GREAT-GRANDFATHERS WOULD HAVE DECLARED A
MIRACLE.
THE TALKING MACHINE HAS CANNED THE
GREAT VOICES AND MASTER MELODIES OF OUR
TIME, bul th* Moving Picture machine has done more
-IT IS MAKING FOR US VOLUMES OF HISTORY
AND ACTION-IT IS NOT ONLY THE GREATEST IMPULSE OF ENTERTAINMENT BIT THE M10HTIEST
FORCE OF INSTRUCTION. WE DO NOT ANALYZE
THE FACT THAT WHEN WE READ OF AN ENGLISH
WRECK WE AT ONCE SEE AN ENGLISH TRAIN BEFORE 1 S, UR WHEN WE LEARN OF A BATTLE THAT
AN ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT PANORAMA IS VISUALIZED THAN OUR FORMER ERRONEOUS IMPRESSION OF A HAND-TO-HAND C0NFL1CT-WE ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE GEOGRAPHY OF EUHOPE-WE ARE
WELL ACQUAINTED WITH HOW THE FRENCHMAN
DRESSES, IN WHAT SORT OF A HOME HE LIVES,
AND FROM WHAT SORT OF A SHOP HE BUYS HIS
MEAT AND GREENS.
WE TAKE SO MUCH FOR GRANTED-WE ARE SO
THOROUGHLY SPOILED BY, OUR MULTIPLE LUXUR-
IES-TIIAT WE DO NOT BESTOW MORE THAN A
PASSING THOUGHT UPON OUR ADVANTAGES, BECAUSE THE MOVING FICjlURE MACHINE IS AN
ADVANTAGE
**************************
A  TREIIENDOUS,  VITAL  FORCE OF   CULTURE
AS WEIL AS AMUSEMENT.
AN ECONOMY, NOT ONLY OF MONEY, BUT OF EXPERIENCES-IT BRINGS THE WORLD TO US-IT DELIVERS THE UNIVERSE TO OCR THEATER SEAT.
THE MOVING PICTURE IS NOT A MAKESHIFT FOR
THE PLAYHOUSE-ITS DIGNITY IS GREATER-ITS
IMPORTANCE FAR BEYOND THE PUNY FUNCTION
OF COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. IT IS A CLEAN ENTERTAINMENT, LECTURE, AND AMUSEMENT ALL
ROLLED IN 0NE-1N IT'S HIGHEST EFFORT IT
STANDS ABOVE L1TERATURE-1N ITS LESS AMBITIOUS PHASE IT RANKS ABOVE THE TAWDRY
SHOW HOUSE.
It teaches nothing harmful, and It usually teaches
much that i* helpful.
TODAY THE MOVING PICTURE INDUSTRY IS DEVELOPED TO A HIGH DEGREE OF PERFECTION IN
AMERICA AND IN EUROPE. MILLIONS OF DOLLARS
ARE INVESTED IN TIIE PRODUCTION OF MOVING
PICTURE FILMS-ENTIRE COMPANIES OF TRAINED
AND PRACTICED ACTORS ARE CARRIED TO EVERY
INTERESTING SPOT ON THE CONTINENT AND
CAREFULLY DRILLED TO ENACT PANTOMIMES
WHICH WILL CONCENTRATE WITHIN THE SPACE OF
A FEW MINUTES THE MOST ENTERTAINING AND
INSTRUCTIVE INCIDENTS OF THE WORLD. A NEW
TYPE OF DRAMATIST HAS AR1SEN-MEN WHO
SEARCH THROUGH THE LITERATURE OF THE AGES
AND CONSTRUCT TABLEAUX IN ACTION WHICH
WILL RENDER VIVIDLY THE ENTIRE CONTENTS OF
FAMOUS WORKS OF THE DRAMA, OF THE NOVEL
AND OF HISTORY.
The MuvIiik Picture Is not a makeshift, but the
HIGHEST TYPE OF ENTERTAINMENT In the
history ol the World.
IT STANDS FOR A BETTER AMERICANISM BECAUSE IT IS ATTRACTING MILLIONS OF THE
MASSES TO AN UPLIFTING, DRAW1N0 THEM AN
IMPROVING AS WELL AS AN AMUSING FEATURE OF
CITY LIFE.
It* value cannot be measured now. but another
generation will benefit more largely through Its
influence than we uf tu-day can possibly realize.
A word to the people of the district, as well as the citizens. Drop in and see for yourselves that ours
is a high-class, low priced, instructive and entertaining amusement enterprise. The programme is changed
every Holiday, Wednesday and Friday, and you will be made welcome whenever you happen to drop in.
There are three exhibitions each evening, commencing at 7.45, 8.15 and 9 o'clock.

(From our Special Correspondent.)
The event of the week, one which is
full of significance to the entire district, was the big mass mcetln of
the miners of the local union held on
Monday to discuss the terms of the
proposed now agreement between the
operators and the miners of district
lh, United Mine Workers of America.
The miners' asked for a day's vacation in which to meet and discuss the
new scales, and thc management ac-
t-ecded to the request, the meetings
were held in Brace's hall, behind
cloned doors, and uo authoritative
statements can be made as to the
decisions arrived at, but the general
tenor of the talk of the miners bears
out the opinion that no serious
trouble will be encountered hv the
two parties at Macleod In arriving
at a very satisfactory agreement
which Is likely to be entered Into (or
the next two years. The scales
committee, composed of President F.
IL Sherman, and other members ol
the district officials, are now in session with the Operators association
at Macleod, and these preliminary
meetings of the local unions have
becn held with a view ot avoiding
such a thing as a referendum after an
agreement has been reached by the
Macleod convention. When seen hy a
press representative on the eve ol his
departure for Macleod, General Manager Hurd, of the C.N.P. company,
stated that he knew nothing of anyi
differences of such importance as to
he at all likely to hinder a speedy
settlement and the adoption ot an
agreement upon lines similar to the
one now In force. That such an
outcome will be welcome to the
whole country, as well as to the parties directly interested, goes without
saying, and will be an encouraging
indication for the near future ot a
large district. Louis Stockett,
general manager of the Hosmer
mines, Ltd., and president ol the
Mine Operators association, is at
Macleod in attendance upon the convention of workers and operators.
' As a result of the long winter and
the deep snow up the Elk river, a
hand of five or six elk have wandered
down the valley lo within two miles
of llosmer. They are so fatigued by
their long tramp in search of fooil
that Ihey are quite docile and have
been approached to within a few
feet. Some one with nerve screwed
up his courage to the point of murdering one of these noble creatures,
and Game Warden Lewis is hunting
fur him in order to present him with
a medal and the compliments of the
province, but so far he has not been
able to find the sport. Many people
from llosmer, including some ladies,
have gone out to have a look at the
big horned elk and Spalding, of Fernie, and others have secured excellent pictures of the little band of
wanderers, Mr. Lewis is having
hay carried mil to them and taking
all possible precautions to protect
them from further molestation by
two legged brutes with murderous inclinations.

PROHIBITION AND BUSINESS,
K. Ulake Croiton, writing ia the
journal oi the Canadian Banker's association, on the subject oi "I'rolu-
bition an Economic Mistake," hits
the key note to the whole situation
when he says: "The prohibition ol
stimulants is financially injurious io
countries inviting immigrants and i
travellers." Mr. I'rofton goes on
lo sav how Prince Edward Islaud has:
lost business through prohibition, a»
tourists keep clear ot that province
knowing perfectly well that il they
waat liquid refreshment thev have to ]
take it in blind pigs—like criminals,
and run thc risk ot having to iiubibt j
liquor that is not lit to diink. lit-,
says further, speaking ol prohibition:
"It has stimulated adultcrative and
illicit dist.lllng. lt is viewed by
manv intelligent people as uu unwarrantable interference with liberty, it
has lostered the defiance and non-enforcement ol law. it has multiplied
perjury in courts. lt lias made lying  and  hypocrisy   epidemic."      in
losing his article Mr. Croiton says.
•Were the prohibitive principle to
prevail and spread, we should lost-
tin- privilege and the duty of tlioos-
ing between good aud evil, our sell-
control and our initiative energies
would wither, and the progressive
sell-reliant races would erow as
spiritless and passive as the thralls
of an Oriental despotism." This
ai tide appearing in such an ulira-
conservatlve publication as the Journal ol the 1'nnadlan Bankers association cannot but carry weight ami a
ureal ileal of weieht. The subieel
is viewed from the cold-blooded,
businesslike, point ol view ol tho
most rold-blooileit business on earth.
Sentiment is utterly eliminated and
only the bate tacts of what is the
-rcolesl good lor the -reatcst num.
ber is ilenlt with and alter reading
the article one is apt to come to the
conclusion that prohibition is allci
all. not an unmixed blessing.

Brother, when you come in Irom

von an- tired, hut nut on your best
I uni. and assume a hupp) mood; do
iiui frown if the lioor is not swept,
nor suppci ready. Engage lho little
Mlk-s just a HtUo while aud gel
llmm lo looking forward to vour
I'oming with pleasure. It will "help
io happily home wonderfully.
\ girl who is gentle, hrave ami
spirited; who is unselfish, high-mlml-
ed ami inlolligenl; who has sweetness
and depth uf character; who does nol
iliinl. uf herself, hut works for Ihe
happiness of other.-;, who Is mem
nml dainty and wholesome, as a girl
should he,' will novel lack either lovers oi friends. She is the light of
the home, a good friend to her Bisters and brother, and the -mistime
..i the old folks     God blew her.
The Ural question a man asks when
he sees a mil Mining is whether she
is respectable or not; it raises a
doubt at onee, This being the case
no modes! girl i .in afnml to Indulge.

Uglltty   aside thnt   sweet   and   modest
reserve su becoming to a maiden, and
whieh so elevates her ami enables
her to command the respeel of all,
she loses the great charm and becomes rather cheap and common, to
use nn rash terms. Flirting mav
seem to tho giddy and thoughtless
girl wonderfully amusing nnd she
may gel the idea Ihat she is fascinating, bui it is a most degrading

As she v.as passing the other ai-
tcrn-»oii. in getting something out of
her pocket, ,i young woman (hopped
a slip <>f paper on the ground, One
saw it and picked it up, Intending,
perhaps to return It, bui a glnnee al
Ibe clean cut angular hand-writing
Induced him lu read it through, foi
publication, and here it, is:
1 I don'l let a mini smoke when
he walks or drives wilh me, If he
knows no betlei than lu 'lu II, I
piumptlv tell him what I think about
ft.
2. I don'l give mj photograph to
men. I used tu occasionally, but I
am wise now. l should hate bye
ami bye to know that my face might
be hanging tip in Tom, Dick or
Main's room.
'■>■ I don'l lei a ii,an lake mv arm
when lie walks with me. if he docs
J tell him I prefer him to give me
his arm.
I. I don'l no out with a man just
because he asks me to. I like ' it
belter if he asks another tu go, ton—
his sister, fur instance,
■V I don't let any man "see me
Home" from church. if he hasn't
got gumption enough to take me
(here ami sit through thu service
with me, be can star away altogether.
ti. I don'l let any man give me a
present, unless it is something uf n
trifling ciist—like fruit or (lowers.

LIKES AND DISLIKES.
Dcai Editor: Please give one who
admires your Humbling Heveries department a ||ttle spare to a subject
not yet touched upon:
Give mo a good, social life, and
nol a society life; a genial, natural
|ici son, ntid not simply an amihle one;
one sensible, populai maiden, and
nol a belle, for no man cares for
such a wife Whose heart has been
trampled on like a navy yard,
01 ve me the woman who works
wilh vim ami never tries to shirk
hei duly, hut whose cry is: "Can I
do enough?" and not: "(Hi, my I I
have loo much to do!" People who
dwell so much on self are generally
miserable
tJlve me the woman who is willing
to adapt herself to circumstances,
and who after an exertion of efforts
has such nn undying faith, her motto
is, "Though he may slay me, yet
will I trust him." The woman who
will not be miserable over the past,
hut will cling to lhe future wilh
hope, for hope is the blossom of
happiness, thi- woman not afraid lu
superintend her domestic affairs and
then grace dpi parlor with as much
dignity ami confidence as if she
were lhe wife ol lhe I'resldenl of
the I lilted Slates; ihe woman who
would elhitt to hei husband through
thlrk and thin, remembering she took
him for better or worse.
In short, on, for Ihe useful, helpful
wmiinn strictly to dutv wed who will
i ling tn lhe cross, shake oft dnilv
burdens nnd remember life is veryi
imili as we make it, ami dispense in
ei pathway the halm uf bitterness,
Show me a Ruth, ami not a Delilah,
n Esthci and nut a Jezebel, a Uoi-
cis and uol a Queen of Sheba, a
Rebecca tu till the troughs for the
camels, a Hannah to make a coat,
the Hebrew maid to prescribe for
Nnamnn, ihe female of Sateiita lo
prepare a meal for hungry Elijah and
a Lois lo teach Timothy tbe Holy
Scriptures, a Queen Victoria in pri
ft-rence to Cleopatra, a N'iobe lo a
l.aioua, a ''.Mother uf G-racchl" to
the Koman lady with her casket of
brilliant jewels, a mother like George
Washington's, whose small likeness
adorned bis neck for forty years;
wife like Martin Luther's, who was
greater to him than tbe wealth of
Crcosiis, and a helpmate live Thomas
Hood's, who acknowledged to her,
"1 never wns anything milII I knew
you."-Header.

WHAT NE OWES TO ZAM-BUK.
Mr. Frank Scudamore, the greet
" *,   wir correspondent, who wt many
mTV ■"     o   the Canadian despatches durinij
w*OI*T t,e late Boer War, owes his health to
Zem-Buk. He hu passed unscathed through *9
kettles, but a scratch which turned to blood-
eobonhu nearly ended Ms days. Zem-Buk saved
Mm and he writes as follows i
" I have proved Zam-Buk such a blessing that
I want others to know of iu merits. Tha
pofconout dya In some underclothing I was
Wearing got into a scratch I had sustained
and blood-poisoning set up. Inflammation
Wat followe I by great pain -no swelling, and
then ulcers broke out on my legs. Kor some
time I could not walk a lew steps no, even
Cit my leet to the ground. On my left
a below the knee I had seventeen ulcere
which caused holes, into which I could put
my thumb. On the right leg I had fourteen
ulcers. Medical treatment failed la relieve,
homely remedies were applied in vein. Week
followed week end I gradually got worse,
until I was worn out with pain and lack of
sleep. On the advice of a friend I obtained
son' Zam-luk and left off everything else
while I tried ll. It seemed to give me almost
instant, relief from the pain, and in a few days
I noticed that it was healing some of tin
ulcers. This was cheering indeed, and gladly
I persevered with the Zam-Buk treatment.
Bit by kit the pois -nous matter was drawn
out. The ulcers were healed, and new healthy
ski., grew over Ike previously diseased placed.
I am now aulte cured, and in gratitude, I
mention these facts that other sufferers from
skin disease m.y know of something which
will cure Ihem.

About five yours uro Alexander
MeCraefien died in America, leaving
property to the value ot a quarter
nf a million sterling. Mr. McCraek-
e» had no children or relatives residing with htm, and matlc no will.
Some time previous to his death he
told a friend that he hart no
knowledge of the whereabouts nf his
relatives, beyond the fact that his
father came from Ireland, where lie
had been known as Sergeant Mccracken, and that his mother was a
native of MaRUireshiidge, County
Fermanagh. Applications were received from scores ot people in all
parts of the world claiming relation- j
ship with the late Mr. McCrackcn, ■
and seeking a share of his estate.
Commissions were appointed to take
evidence in various districts, and nn
inquiry was opened at Clones, County Moiia^haii. The evidence tendered
al Clones disclosed thc remarkable
coincidence that about sixty vents

night long the people remain up,
most of them out of doors, in tbe
pitiless weather, (earing that It they
seek the rest mam nl Ihem so nuu-li
need they may be entering on their
last sleep. A crowd til between fifty
and a hundred persons, aided by
the local police, having risked the
perilous bridge of planks and straw
titrown over tho seething mud, made
desuerate by unavailing efforts to recover the hodv af Mrs. McDonnell,
who was engulfed in her cottage. A
relief fund is to be started for the
relief of the sufferers.
A singular story was told at Del-
last police court recently, when Dr.
Graham, city coroner, summoned
Mrs. Lilburn for using threatening
and abusive language. According to
the evidence for the prosecution, defendant's husband committed suicide
some time ago by hanging himself on
a tree in the grounds of the local
industrial school. Mrs. Milium refused to allow tin- body to be taken
to the   house, and   It had to be re
moved to the morgue.... At the inquest the jury added a rider to their
verdict to the effect that the woman
was to a certain extent responsible
for iter husband's death. Since that
.Mrs. Mlhurii had continually abused
the coroner when she met him in the
siteet. The police had previously
summoned her for abusive language
ami disorderly conduct, and she was
sent to prison for a month. Two
days after ber release she again insulted Dr, Graham in the street, and
a few days later, when thc coroner
wns attending a funeral, she used
abusive and threatening language in
such a loud voice that alt the mourners were disturbed. Eventually a
special constable had tn be placed
outside the woman's house when the
coroner was passing, as he often did,
to protect him. Defendant agreed
not to interfere with Dr. Graham
again, and was discharged.
A curious story in regard to a
fortune was narrated in the Chancery division, Dublin, Ireland, to-
cently. Patrick Hoylan, living at
Dray, lhe fashionable seaside resort
near Dublin, died intestate in 1903,
liis assets being £35.917. A portion
devolved on his niece, Mrs. Elizabeth Brcnnan, "it she were alive,"
and, if she were dead on Michael
lloran. Mrs. Hreunan had left Ireland, main years ago, bad become
meutnll) deranged in Kngland by the
strain o| searching for her husband,
nnd had been placed in an asylum at
Lancaster. In 1003 her children and
relatives supposed her dead, and the
i ham ei j com t paid her share,
£3,907, to lloran. Recently through
n lettei which she sent to a parish
pries! in County VVicklow, ■which he
communicated to her son, her existence in the asylum was discovered,
nml she was released on her son's
application, cured. Mr. Justice Har-
inii saving no blame attached to
lloran, ordered that, pending formal
pionl ol the woman's identity, lloran
tihould pay £1,000 into court and
give security tor the balance.
\i Colcrainc (Juartct Sessions re-
cently, Judge Uvcrend gave a eou-
siilcred decision as to what constitutes a village. The defendant, sued
(oi improvements to a house at
Lmimnhoo, pleaded that the place
was a hamlet, nut a village, and
therefore did not come under the
ln»ii Tenants Act. Judge QvorcUO
said thai in Uomnn times the house
oj the owner ol an estate was called
a villa, and the houses ot tlte slaves
ami workmen formed the village. ,\
law dictionary oi 1803 defined a village as a precinct of ten tenauts.
Dltimuhoe was a village, as il had a
ehurch, a HChool, a public house and
a telegraph office.

railway. Uo repotted the matter
tu lho police, who procured a drag,
and found Hie body «>f an old man
named Mnthow Kllleen. H is sup-
pused thai Killcun was coming from
a neighbor's house when he fell into
the bogbole, in which there were
about lour feet ot water. He must
have struggled ior a long time, as
the heath around the bogbole was
dragged oft the bank in several -places,
ami the marks of tbe old mans
lingers could be observed in the
bank.
In charging the grand jury at Mut-
lingar Quarter .Sessions recently,
Judge Cun an remarked that though
there were only three cases o! ordin-
arv crime, lie could not congratulate
them on the state ot the country.
There hud been eases ot cattle driv-

PRINTERS ERRORS.
The printer's error, like a thing o!
beauty, is a joy forever. Smiles and
tears are intermixed in it, the smiles
ol the public who see it and thc
tears*—to say nothing of curses—of
the author. Some examples of
printers errors are ccrtainW grotesque, One of William Black's heroines died not of "opium," but of
"opinion." One edition ot Dickens
"Cricket on the Hearth," came out
as "Cricket on the Heath."
Al a W.C.T.U. conference held some
time ago, the president of that organization proposed the toast, "Woman, with her, man is a beast.
She was quoted us saving "Woman
without her man, is a beast."
The late linker Pasha, who was certainly a "battle-scarred veteran,"
appeared in an newspaper article as
a "battle scared veteran," the libel
being hideously deepened when another paper hailed him as a "bottle
i scarred veteran." Owing to a prin-
iter's error, the announcement, "A
sailor going to sea, his wife desires
I the prayers of the congregation"
was made to read "A sailor going to
I see his wife desires the prayers ot
• the   congregation."       Again "Your
(presents are requested." The sad-
bv the Jocular printer into "Your
presents are reqdested." The saddest error of all was, perhaps, made
by the comrades of a deceased compositor In a trade organ, when they
declared that thev h*-d "docked his
beer," when what really was meant
was "decked his Wer."
as fur instance, anv -arden soil th;4
has had plentiful applications ot
stable manure tor a course of years,
M'-ht colored soils are, as a rule,
deficient in it.
Resides enabling the soil to retain
moisture humus also prevents having
and produces nitrification or the
action of bacteria in the soil, thus
transforming the nitrogen of decaying organic matter into nitrates
for the use of the growing crop.
These bacteria require air, moisture
and beat, and humus contributes all
of these, by making the soil looser
and mellower so the nir can penetrate it more readily, by conserving
the moisture it is 'made more sure
and uniform, and hy making the soil
n darker color, it absorbs more heat
from thc sun and by its looser condition radiation at night is somewhat
■becked. In view of all this any
means of storing the soil with vegetable matter will richly repay the
cost and should receive the greatest
attention in the preparation of or-
hard land-
Three planting is not to lie compared with putting in a crop of
grain, which is off again in a few
months and gives a chance to correct neglect. The trees we hope,
however, are to stand twenty, thirty or more years and if they get a
poor send-off thc first season, your
pocket book will feel the effect for
years. The ground should he tall
plowed, as frost action is very beneficial to heavy land especially, and
light soil spring plowed is too open
and dries out too quickly. In ease
of a hard-pan near the surface a
good plan is to set off a charge of
dynamite where each tree is to stand
which will help to secure sufficient
drainage and root run for the
trees.
To plant trees ou newly broken
sorter Irom sun-scald and also mak-
experienced men as a very doubtful
way of advancing the orchard, even
with thc very best of tillage and
enre. The best of opinions agree
that in a course ot years, the orchard
would have been as far ahead to have
delayed the planting one or two years
and crop and subdue the soil first.
The Idaho people strongly recommend the planting ot yearling trees as
giving the planter the chance to head
his trees at such height as suits
himself, whereas the larger trees as
generally sold are headed in the nursery and are Invariably too high,
leaving too much exposed trunk to
suiter from sun-scald nub also making the trees less resistant to the
wind and liketv to be bent nr root-
loosetied. Then* is considerable
space in this bulletin devoted to
conveniences for laying out the
ground and planting, also on pruning and alter attention.
On choice of varieties that are intended for Northern Idaho is in line
with my own suggestions as given
your readers some time since and
iieed not be enlarged upon here.
On the whole the bulletin is very
practical and adaptable to this district and it would well repay those
interested to write the Director
State Experimental Station, Moscow,
Idaho, for a copy of Bulletin No. K-t,
and keep it on hand for reference.
