After being lost sight of for nearly
n year, Money, Griffin and Foley, thc
three desperadoes who held up a
C.P.It* train near Kamloops and
made their escape into tlu; Cariboo
district, after shooting Special Constable Ike Decker at Ashcroft, have
again been found, and with the police
oti their trail are now somewhere in
the Boundary country.
The three men had a narrow escape
at Lundbreck on Thursday, November lli, and the details of their escape and the subsequent chase by
lhe Mounted police are just beginning
to leak out.
Well mounted and heavily armed
the trio were seen in the vicinity of
Lundbreck on the date mentioned
A detective -who located them called
on the Mounted Police for assistance.
Accordingly Insocctor Belcher of
Pincher Creek was ordered to take
the trail, and with all thc available
officers he set out to capture Ihr
murderous trio.
The posse he gathered together
were Constables Beach, of Frank;
Lee, of Lundbreck; o'Connell, of Pincher Creen, and Moorehead, of Lille.
Hiding hard, the officers covered over
four hundred miles in ten days, but
the desperadoes were better mounted than thc police and managed to
keep so far ahead of them that they
gave them the slip over the British
Columbia boundary line.
II is believed that the gang hnv
accomplices in some of the mining
towns, as although the men were
seen right in Lundbreck on one
caslon, they were able to get almost
a day's start on the officers, and
were apparently informed of the he-
ginning of the chase. The police also have a theory that the men have
a cache in the hills of the Crows
Nest Pass, and that they were contemplating another daring hold-up
when they were forced to thi* ahead
of the officers.
The statement of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce for the year ending .November 20, 1910, makes a good
showing. Thc net profits for the
year amounted to Sl.MH.Ottf, as compared with $1,610,695 for last year.
With 1722,139 balance nt credit of

watd from last year, there was a

As there has been considerable dis
cusslon of late among those poultry-
men who hanker after the dollar n
do/en egg In and about Cranbrook,
concerning tbe advisability of using
artificial heat In tbelr poultry-
houses and as some are proposing to
1I0 this the coming winter, It might
not he out of place to call attention to thc results of experiments In
two of tbe coldest States In tho
l'nion In n bulletin lust to band
from Maine State einerlnu-atat    sta
tion the poultry manager says: "We
decided In luus to abandon the heated
house belonging to the poultry plant. I
It has not been used in recent years
except for storage of cockerels. It

cither laying or breeding birds ..ml

In another bulletin of earlier date
from     the same  station they .-■tat'*:
When tho Maine station began experiments in 1897 a warmed house
150x10 teet vvas erected. This warmed house, while constructed after the
most approved model of the lime,
has never been a satisfactory house
for laying bens. It hns now been
abandoned entirely in favor of cur
tain front houses to bo described he-
These conclusions were arrived at
after years of work with this aoitse
by tbal leading poultry experimental
1st, tbe late lamented Professor Gilbert Oovvcll, who iu planning a private poultry plant of bis own to curry two thousand laying hens, built
one house to contain tho whole, which
wus IHO feet long by 2(1 teet wide
containing twenty compartments, all
on the curtain front, unhealed principle, and my latest private advice
from this plant is that it has been
remarkably successful In producing
winter eggs.
I have before mc also a bulletin issued last May from the .Minnesota
farm at Crooks ton, .Minn., .surely a
situation cold enough to be a criterion. In this the poultry man of
tho station, after discussing d liferent
styles of houses says: "House No.
*i is really a colony house made of
singly ply matched lumber covered
with prepared rootling. This house
might he called the 'extremely cold
style.' We wintered pullets of Orpington, Rock nud Leghorn breeds in
it and they continued tu lay well al)
through the season, on one occasion
the thermometer registering twenty-
eight degrees below zero inside Unbuilding, and with the exception of
the Leghorns the birds did not suffer
In thc least, some of the Leghorn
combs being large were frozen. This
house was practically free from
dampness, owing to loose fitting
doors and windows. A common remark of visitors was "How healthy
those fowls look." These fowls were
fed in the same proportion ns in the
other houses and the egg yield was
equally as good, one Leghorn pullet
laid twenty-five eggs in December.
The experiment with this house leads
us to believe that poultry will stand
a great deal of cold, provided their
quarters are dry, and that it is impossible to get dry, pure air if the
house is very warm. The old idea
of heating a house—as most of us
know—is a failure, owing to the difficulty of maintaining an even temperature aud when we can get good
results from a eold house why go t*.
heating It."
These opinions are at least dcsorv
ing of some consideration nnd ttt*-u-
tion by those who are making ebon
ges this season, and are, I believe, a
fair summary of the conclusions -b
taimd in all the experimental stations iu the northernmost tier cl
states as well as the Canadian
ones, in most of which the winters
are surely more trying than In thi*-

('rows Nest I'ass valley had been
observed. Subsequently the value of
tlw measures was computed by Ur.
Selwyn, whose conclusions were in
eluded in a report ol tbe Geological
Survey of Canada for the year 1891,
some prospecting work having previously done by Mr. Wm. Fernie, then
ol Fort Steele. Contemporaneously
with1 the beginning of construction,
iu 1897, of the Crows Nest railway,
which eventually gave connection
with the Canadian Pacific Itailway
compan>'.-. main line ol railway near
Medicine Hat, Hasten. Alberta, in an
easterly direction, and Kootenay
Lake, Hritish Columbia, to the westward, the work of opening tbe
Crows Nest I'ass Coal company's big
deposits of coal was commenced, and
by tbe time the railway reached the
mines in the summer of 1892, some
10,000 toos of coal had been banked
out and more than 4000 ft. of limning driven. Tbe construe.ion ol the
railway bad a stimulating elTect on
the mining industry uf South Kast
Kootenay, reviving interest In its
mineral resources and prnvldl-ig
transportation facilities for ihe shipment of tode minerals as well* as
eoal. Tbe eBwt has been shown in
the great increase of mineral production since then, the value of production having been as follows: In
1896-8, 11,020,834; 1900-1, $12,211,-
857;  1905-9,  $25,627,953.
There Is little of interest to record
in connection with tin- history of
mining in Oolden ami Winder mcre
divisions of Kast Kootenay. However, now that there seems to be n
reasonable probability ol tin- Kootenay Central railway beiug constructed, tbe outlook for Improvement is
better than at any previous time
since the cessation of lode mining
operaeions on various properties in
Windermere division, some of which
have been productive, though under
conditions adverse to profit earning.
The provision of less costly transportation facilities may be expected
to encourage a resumption of work
and a consequent output of ore in
moderate quantity
In his report on "The Coal Fields
nf Manitoba,   Saskatchewan, Alberta
and Eastern British Columbia," published last year   hy the' OeogTaphlcal
Survey    Branch of   the Cnirado De-
partrnent ol Mines, Mr. B, B   Bowl-
ing, one of the most prominent   coal]
geologists of Canada, gives estimates j
of   the area and coal content of the j
sevital pro-item dealt   with by him f
in tbat report. Tbe total estimate
for the three provinces named and
tlie eastern part of British Columbia
is an area of approximately 22,f>00
square miles containing 143,490,000,-
000 tons of coal, tbis including 65,-
330.000,000 tons of anthracite, semi-
anthracite, bituminous and lignau-
coal, and 78,ltj0,00O,O0O tons of lignite. Of ttie bituminous coal 30,-
000,000,000 tons, contained in 370
square miles of coal-bearing country
is British Columbia's estimated proposition. Mr. Bowl ng remarks:
"The problem of forming an estimate
of the coal content is exceedingly
difficult, and the aim in this review
is to give what might be called
the maximum value from the knowledge we at present possess. The
minumum will be arrived at only
after years of prospecting, and will,
we hooe, be well up to tbe present
Mr. Bowling says the coal Is found
in three distinct horizons. Of these,
the Kootenay formation is tho only
one of the measures found lo occur
in British Colombia. "Exposure of
these measures nre to be found in tbe
Klk River valley, which heads near
the Kananaskls. Tbe field, which
has been generally known as the
Crows Nest area, coat-atns 230 square
miles ot coal lands; estimated to
contain 22,000,000,000 tons of bituminous- coal. North of this, on tbe
upper valley of Klk river, on additional area of 140 squire miles bas
an estimfttitt content of 14,000,000,-
1.110 tons."
Concerning the Klk river or Crows
Nest lu-ld, which, he says, In passing,
is "perhaps* the most important in
Canada," the following Information
is given; "Tbe areas in British Columbia on the Klk river are divided
Into two portions. The southern
one—for which Fernle is the largest
shipping point—has a length north
and south of afcout 30 miles, and a
maximum width of 12 or 13 miles.
The coal-bearing rocks have in several section*a been found to have a
thickness as great as 4700 feet. In
this area there are 22 workable
seams, with a total ot 216 feet of
coal, 100 feet of which are estimated
as workable. This would give a
total workable coal content for the
district of 22,«0»,000,000 tons. Thc
coal is a high-grade bituminous, oc*
easionally ranning Into anthracite.
Tbe coal from the majority of tbe
seams is used for the manufacture of
coke, but steam coal is a product as
wll. The colHerles are situated at
Coal Creek (near Fernie) Michel,
Morrissey -and Hosmer.
"The    nor Ihem part ot this    coal
field extends from about 21 miles
north of .Michel creek to the height
of laud at Kananaskis river, n distance of nearly lorty miles. The
width does not exceed seven miles us
a maximum, and toward the north
diminishes to a vanishing point at
the source of the Kananaskis. Tins
area has been computed to Ih* about
140 square miles, and the number or
workable coal seams is large. In
one place, Aldridge creek, for example, it is estimated at It! square
miles, with a total thickness of IM
feet of coal. It 100 feet be extracted then, on the assumption thnt the
whole area of 140 miles is of equal
value, the total coal may le estimated at, say, 100,000,000 tons per
square mile, or » total of 14,000,-
000,000 tons."
Tlie provincial mineralogist (Mr
W. F. Kobertson) prepared un account ol these coal fields for the
"Annual Iteport of the Min sler ol
Mines," for 1809. This is printed
ou pp* 103,183 of ttie report, and
contains many interesting particulars. This is the most recent official information available,     lie says:
Both the coal areas in British Columbia are tributary tn the Kit.
river, being located on its eastern
slope and on tributary streams flowing in from tlie east. These two
areas nre, undoubtedly, of tin* same
geological horizon, and were probably at one time parts of a continuous
series ol beds; hut subsequent geological action nnd denudation huve
removed a section ol the measures,
until now they are separated hi
interval ol about 21 miles of
country, barren ol coal. tlm*. making
two separate eoal fields—the Soiith-
ern, or Crows Nest field, and the
northern, or Upper Klk river, field.
The former field has la-en extensively
prospected, and has been under active
development for the last twelve
years; it is amply provided with
railway facilities, and has Iseen for
eleven years a constant producer of
coal. The latter field has been
pretty well surveyed and mapped, but
as yet has only been prospected, and,
although considerable work has been
done there, it has been of a nature
merely to prospect the field but nol
to produce coal."
From Mr. Robertson's Introductory
information it is learned that this
coal area extends in an east nnd
west direction, from the Klk river
eastward to the summit ol the
Rocky Mountains, which Is the''
boundary of the province, and thence
farther eastward Into the province ot
Alberta to an extent only small by
comparison.    In a north and south j
direction the field extends northwards from the hills south of
Morrissey creek, to and including the
hills north ol Michel creek. Work
done siihseqiieiit to the publication of
Mr, McEvoy's report, 1900, has proved the coal measures to extend
farther eastward than was then
known, which might somewhat Increase the area beyond that then
given. The coal in this area is
all bituminous, and most of it suitable lor coke-making, although that
of gome of the large seams at Morrissey will uot make coke, as it is
too high in fixed carbon and too low
in volatile matter.
Itailway transportation facilities
are provided by Iwo railways. The
Crows .Nest branch of tlie Canadian
Paeiiie railway, crossing over the
summit of the Itockies from Alberta, follows down .Michel creek, which
creek cuts right through the northern
edge of llie southern eoal field, and
continues down the valley of the
Klk river. From these streams and
tin* railway all the coal seams are
accessible by short branch roads. The
railway Rives connection with the
metalliferous mining camps of Nelson, Itossland and the Boundary,
while a branch line, starting at
Curzon, furnishes an outlet for the
cnal to Spokane, Washington, and
the country tributary The second
line is that const met ed by the
(ireal Northern Railway company
from Kexford Junction, crossing the
International boundary at Gateway,,
following up the valleys of the Kootenay and Klk rivers, and continuing
pasl MorrlSSCy and Fernie to Michel,
at which three points it makes connection wilh the Crows Vest I'ass
company's branch lines to tlie mines.
This Oreat Northern brunch hns been
buili wilh especial regard to easy
grades, and, having a continuous
down-grade to main line, if Is not
unusual for one locomotive to haul
a train of 78 10-ton ears down, or
iou empty cars up.
As to railway distances, the tallowing informal ion will give approximate distances to various points to
which coal Is sent from Crows Nest
I'ass collieries. Thc CPU. company's Crows Nest branch leaves its
main line at Dunsmulr Junction, Alberta, reaches l-ethhrldge at 107

Has! Kootenay's yield was recorded
as having been $21,07(1; thereafter it
was less, varying down to $10,000
until 19U2, when a total recovery ol
$.13,000 was placed on rn-ord. For
tin* two next follow im: years it was
credited with 120,000 each year, but
since then Its yield has heroine less

Wild Horse creek lirst uttracecil
plum miners of Kast Kootenuy; that
was in the sixties. Since then
Flndlay, Perry, and other creeks, upper Moyie river, nnd Bull river, hnve
all had more or less placerlnq done
on them. Several years ago three
companies were hydraullcking on,
Perry Creek, but two of them nre
not now operating. As to Wild
Horse creek, there are widely differing accounts of the total value of
the gold recovered from It. About
six vears ngo the Cranbrook tteruhl
published a special number, in which
was printed some Interesting inform
atlon    concerning   Robert   C   Bore,
one of the discoverers of gold
Wild Horse creek.    From the
Count of a lung talk with Mr
the following   excerpts have
"I was the first man to put In a
hydraulic plant on Wild Horse creek.
By the same token, il was on tin-
site of the nickel property we have
just seen, that the first nozzle ever
stirred dirt in British Columbia. The
pipe 1 used was similar lo the fin* engine
hose, but it wus six inches In diameter; it was rotnforced on the outside
with heavy rope netting, so that it
could resist a pressure or 250 lis. to
the square inch. 1 never worked at
such a pressure, hut wanted to
make sure ol my gear. 1 had it
specially made Ior me in San Francisco, and 1 need not say it was
terribly expensive between the cost
of n special style ol plant to turn it
out and the freight rates of those
times. All ttie same It paid for itself ten times over. By 1870 by
gulch had seen its Ik-si days Uy
that date it hud ceased to be a
poor man's camp, as tho shallow
gravel had all turn worked out. The
general appearance or things hns not
altered much since then. Speaking
ol what amount of gold came out of
Wild Horse creek, 1 put it at about
$15,01)0,0011. The official figures are
nowhere near true, nor do they approximate the truth by millions of
dollars. I know that men paid duty
on iirobubly a tenth of what they got
out ■•! the dirt.   Many never paid   a
cent \s tor the future, ,.l! I
can say is Hint (here is ns much
cnlil iu tlie gulch as ever came out ot
it.       You see around   mountains of
untouched gravel."

unit of i,noo,non or more acres,   re*
presenting a tract of laud about
78 miles long by lo in .in miles fn
wid Hi, nr 1800 to 3500 square miles.
An adequate patrol force should contain ut lensl one man to every

J lust as in a city, engines, men anil
horses are maintained to fight fires,
so in our forests there must be
men, tools and pack-trains immediately available when a fire in discovered.
Owing to thc absence of spring
rams, there were serious fires burning hy thc fifteenth of July jji tho
present year on ncarlj every forest
west of the continental divide. Mi
tbe middle ol .July our 3000 extra
laborers were employed on the fin-
lines in North-western Montana ami
Northern Idaho. To condense Mr
SUcox' interesting narrative;
"Bj the middle of August our
3000 small fires had been put out
and over w> large ones brought under
control. On thc afternoon of August --■ a hurricane, which continued
for 2-1 hours, fanned everj fire in its
path into uncontrollable furj Tin-
roar oi them was heard for mites,

20 lo ■'.."■ miles wide was burned aver;
71 temporary laborers were killed
and as many more Injured.*'
Answering the question "Is lire
protection for our forests worth
while?" Mr. SUcox gives the following figures.
"The estimate of valuable limber
in tlie present district nl periodical
tires in the national forests nl
Northern Idaho and Nnrehwcatern
Montana is about 80 billion leet, representing a mono} value ol sum,.
$30^,000,000. Tin* recent ore covered two watersheds when* sales
bad actually been mode Bggi stating
in stumpage value IMO.coo. Tins
timber has alt been killed bj fin-, re
presenting a loss tn the Ration of
over MW.OOO.''
Forester Craves points oul thai
tlw* forest protective force is altogether inadequate, ami that the Ural
thir-K required is a rapid cxtcuston
of the system of trails, nre lines,
nnd telephone lines. \ fundamental
principle in lire protection is that
(here must be an organlr.nt.nti to
prevent the starting of flrcs and
not merely one to put Ihem nut. The
essential things to make tin- location
and control of tires in the national
forests possible nre summarized as
■'(1). A comprehensive system of
ridge nnd steam rails which ex
tend over the entire tbresl These
trails average iu coql Irom $1.0.00 to
SI00.OO per mile, with an I* inch
trend am) h   foot clear lur Each
1 forest should eventual I]  hare    trom
21111 to M'O miles of trail.
"(2).   A     system ol     well-selected
lookout points and ridge rrails,      so ;
co-ordinated as to give primary con- i
irol   ol ali    districts    for locating
"(3). a co-ordinated system of
telephone lines extending up the main
streams and tapping bj trlbutarj
lines the lookout points.
"Mi. The purchase and maintenance ot pack horses fully equipped!
with pack saddles. Thcso horses can
In* used for building trails and, when
the emergency arises, put on duty
packing lire supplies.
"(5), The location of caches ol
tools throughout the forest at
strategic points. These tools shohlil
consist ol mattocks or grub-hoes,
saws, axes, and shovels, enough to
equip tin men from each cache.
"(ti). A patrol on heavily timbered areas ol at hast one man to
30,000 acres, and in the mon open
regions of one man to 50,00(1 or
011,000 acres.
"The question will be raised as to
whether it is possible to protect
these areas Irom fires and whether or
not it is worth while Appreciating even thc full significance ol thc
i-.ii.cI roptie of this .ear. there Is
not the slightest dotthl hut lhat
with an adequate trail, look-run,

Review of Past Year's Operations with a Forecast of Future
Clear Exposition of Difficulties Surrounding thc Industry by one of the
Leading Lumbermen of British Columbia
I-.-ditor cranhrook Herald-
Dear Sir; In reply to your tetli r

nppnrent demand
In this- conueeHoi
that    the   buslnca
ear ean scarcely
tslaclory.    At the
year   there was .it
or all   the lumlier anil lumber pin-
ducts that were then in the hands ol
the manufacturers, ami a   very sntl»
fftctory     huslness    continued    unl I
nhout- -inly 1st, when, owing to tic
excessive   drought     in    the   pruir.t*
provinces of Canadn, and tin* niisat--
Isfactory conditions existing    among
the   American    mills,     which fore il
large quantities of foreign lumlier In-
iiir markets, a decided cliaii',e {
took place in tho general conditions
affecting the British Columbia manufacturers. Prices fell to a point
considerably below the actual cost
of production, and, owing Lo thc arrangements made hy the majority
of lhe mills for a largo output,
there has been, In my opinion, o\ i
100.000,000 feet or lumber sold during the present year at a price In
low the actual cost.
It is quite ditiicult to Judge us to
the future, excepting that with n
normal demand In our prairie provinces, and a good export and local
trade on thc cast, all the lumber
that is now in existence in Hritish
Columbia should he absorbed during
the next nine montlis. It would, of
course, be folly to expect to run
the mills- night and day during Iflll,
and expect to dispose ol thc lumber that Is now- on band and also
that which would he cut during thai
year, as the population that tie*
British Columbia mills have to
serve, in competition with the spruce
mills in Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the western
pine mills ol Ontario, and our American competition, is too small at the
present time to enable the British
Columbia mills to run full capacity more than four or five months
in   thc year
In dis cussing bricllj tin- lumber
situation during the past year, nnd
a vague forecast ot the luture, (I
might also he well to discuss lotne-
what the actual conditions surrounding the lumlier industry of the interior of British Columbia at the present time.
In tin* tirst place, I think I am
safe In saying that up to the present time the actual lumbering
operations in the interior uf Hritish
Columbia have nol, in the aggregate, been profitable lor those engaged therein There may have lieen
some profits made hy brokers, speculators and investors In procuring,
buying and selling standing timber, but, with a very lew cxccp-
tlons, profits have not heen shown
by those who are actually engaged
In the industry of produc ng and
manufacturing Idmnei and lumber
The principal reasons being:
1st,—Tin* inadequate and unstable
and.—A steadv and continual increase lu   the cost of production.
3rd-—Tbe   rough aud   mountainous
I*   I.t NM.
Managing   Director    of the    Crows
Nest I'ass Lumbei Company
-ndltion of    the country.
ith.—The large percentage of small
Umber growing in the mountain
districts and the accumulation ol a
surplus rd low grade lumber.
ih —Tlie comparatively small
stand ol merchantable timber per
acre in the interior of Hritish Columbia.
(•th.—Tlie continual annual destruction of thc most accessible timber
hy bush lires.
7th—The high carrying charge in
the matter ol ground rentals, royalties, etc.
Mh.—Lack of adequnto car --ir-
ricc and transportation facilities
•Mii.—Lack of adequate protection
against foreign competition
10th.—The heavy investments ul
capital required in    the business
In the first Instance, the great
timber areas of British Columbia,
Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan ;■ il
Manitoba, have become occupied, ami
have reached a high state ol exploitation during a comparallvelj short
period M is true that during tins
same period, Western Canada lias received a rery heavy Immigration
indeed, and In consequence thereol
ha** enjoyed a period ol unprecedented prosperity, it is true never tholes* that Hit- lumber Industry has
grown In proportions to a much
greater extent than hai either the
transportation facilities or Immigration, and it is a fact beyond dis-
puto thai the present producing c.
pacitv ol the mills In Hritish Columbia, Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Western Ontario, is sufficient to supply the requirements of .ill Western Canada
until Ms pnpulntlon shall have reached several limes its present numbers.
Lumlier seems to In* one of the few
staple commodities thai continue to
(Itictuatc in price with every changing condition In thc lumlier business it is eiiher a feasl nr n famine.
It is a fact thai the lumber
manufacturer who owns ,i largo
quantity ol standing timber will
show greater profits in holding it
and safeguarding iis growtb and perpetuity frnm destruction by tiro and
other causes, than he will by manu
faeturlng it into   lumber, undei   the
present conditions.

In this connection, t mlghl say

The Imperial Hank of Canada, wiib
bead ollice iu Toronto and a branch
ol the bank in t'ranbrook, wns established in 1875 under the general
I nu nager ship uf Mr. I). It. Wilkie.
Since that time, under tlie general
managership and presidency of Mr.
Wilkie. Ibe hank has gone forward
by leaps and hounds until it bas
reached iis present enviable position
as oue of the leading banks uf Canada. The bank, with a subscribed
eapilal uf $6,005,000, paid-up capital
of, $5,575,000 and a reserve fund of
Ibe .same amount, has branch hanks
iu the province of Quebec, Ontario,
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British Columbia. The Imperial
I tank of Canada early showed its
lailu in (he latter province, and especially iu that pari ol tbe province
known us the Crows Nest Pass. \
branch of tho bank was established
in Cranhronk in the year 1002, and
since that time branches have been
established at Lethbridge, Michel,
New Michel, Kernie and Moyie. \
practical example of the faith of the
bank iu ilu* city of Cranbrook, iu
particular, has been exhibited by the
erection recently of the splendid
building into which the local staff of
the bank has recently moved. This
building, built of brick and Calgary
sandstone, is one nf the linest banking bouses in the distriet. and occupies a prominent position in the
cily on Ibe corner af Maker slreel
ami Hanson avcnilO. Indeed many a
city is favored With less pretention-
banking offices. The building Is
heated throughout with steam ami,
with first-class appointments, Is
modern in every particular. Tho
lust lloor is devoted entirely tu tbe
ust- ul the bank. Tbe second floor
provides accoinmmlation for tin-
bank's solicitors, Messrs. Harvey,
MeCarler and Macdonald, who have
splendidly e(|uipped offices. The hank
looks forward to a great, development of the natural resources of the
growth of tlie  city, to the businesslike methods ami  courteous manners

he acquired while connected with tbe
S'atlonal Drug and chemical companj
| ol Canada,   ael ing as   inanager for a
i retail branch of this firm iu tbe eitv
[of  Toronto.     Mr.   Barber's   motto
* and policy   has ever been, that if   a
thing is    worth   doing   al all, it is
j worth doing well.
j This is very characteristic and pro
muinccd in their prescription depart
ment, where everything is done with
■the utmost care and accuracy, .Ml
I Barber having graduated with honors
in ibis particular capacity. It In
largely because of tlie confidence the
{general public have in ibis firm that
their prescription department has
grown to such an extent during the
past year. The unfailing attention
ui Mr. Barber lu the wants of the
store's patrons lias gained both for
himself ami the store the warm regards of the bull; uf Cranbrook's cltl-
