Against   40-1
Majority  for     160
Spoiled Ballots   :iu
ThiB is the final result of thc 1,allotting which took place Saturday
last, when the provincial government
held a plebiscite to test the feeling
as to the establishment of beer parlors here, following the circulation
of a petition last summer asking thut
another vote be tuken on the question.
There were not muny people who
professed to be surprised at the result of the vote, but not mnny had
thought the majority would be as
large, though one mnn has been
heard to say that it was not as large
as he thought it would be. Polling
day passed quietly, though there were
evidences of enthusiasm on both
sides, but there were no untoward
occurrences at the polls reported.
Active work had been in progress by
both the wets and drys, especially
during the last days of the campaign.
Analyzing   the  Vote
Those favoring the opening of beer
parlors feel that the vote very decidedly represents the sentiment as
it is at present, while those opposing
feel that they owe their defeat to
the fact that their opponents lost no
effort to get the maximum vote to
the polls, including a number of voters from distant points in the district, while it is evident that even
what is usually termed the "church
vote" was not unitedly against beer
in this instance. The drys also feel
that had an opportunity beon given
just before the plebiscite to get u
revision of the voters' list, it would
have gone in their fnvor, claiming
that a number of women, and many
young people would have voted nay,
had their names been on the list.
Be all this as it may, the fact remains that Cranbrook hns voted for
beer parlors, and in thc course of
the next few months thc places duly
licensed will most likely open up for
business. There have boen various
predictions as to how many places
will be authorized, rnnging all thc
way up to ten or eleven, but general
remains that tho general concensus
opinion is that four or five is ample for the town, and that to open
too many would bc detrimental to
all concerned.
The revised count of thc ballots
took place on Wednesday evening,
at the office of the returning officer,
W. D. Guthrie, in the presence of
W. F. Dornn nnd G. T. Moir. representing the wet and drys respectively,

A Record Fish and Story
Thc many friends of Mrs. E. Patterson and C. Leiteh, of this city, regretted to learn of thc death in Vancouvor of their mother, Mrs.
Louisa M. Leiteh, widow of the late
Archibald Leiteh, The deceased lady,
who was a native of Ontario, was in
her 77th year, and had been a resident of Crunbrook since 1898, when,
wilh her husband, she came to Cranbrook, Mr. Leiteh entering the lumber business here. The body was
brought rto Cranbrook on Thursday
last, and the funeral held on Friday
from the Presbyterian church, Rev.
M. S.  Blackburn officiating.
In referring to the deceased, Mr.
Blackburn stnted that she had been
one of the active workers in the
Church, and thc president of the Ladies' Aid when the church was built.
Following thc death of her husband in 1910, Mrs. Leiteh lived for
a while in Cranbrook, leaving in 1914
to make her home in Vancouver,
where she resided with her son,
George, und his family, and also Miss
Jessie Leltch. The members of her
family left to mourn her passing arc
George Leiteh and Miss Jessie Ivoiteh,
Vancouver, A. K. Leiteh, Mrs. E.
Patterson, Colin Leiteh, Mrs. Watson
Hall, Winnipeg. Predeceasing her
was a daughter, Mrs. Gordon Sutherland, of  Calgary.
Present at the funeral on Friday
were Mr. and Mrs. A. K. Leiteh, Calgary; Miss Jessie Leltch, Vancouver;
Mrs. K. Patterson, Colin Leiteh; Miss
Marion Leiteh, Nelson; Mr. Gordon
Sutherland, C.P.R. divisional superintendent, Calgury, and Malcolm
Leiteh, a brother-in-law, of Crunbrook.
Many floral tributes testified to
the esteem in which the deceased
lady was held.
The pall beards were Messrs. J. P.
Fink. W. R. Grubbe, A. A. MacKinnon. Dr. F. B. Miles, A. Raworth and
W. E. Worden.
Interment was made in the family
plot, where her husband was buried
sixteen years ago.
Civic elections are now not far ,
away, and thc next week or two will j
probably see some activity in this
direction. At present it is likely there j
will bo a contest for the mayoralty,
either W. F. Cameron or A. C. Bowness being candidates likely to run, 1
while Mayor Roberts is also being!
pressed to consider letting his name,
go up for another two-year term, j
Aldermen MacPherson, Fink and
Cameron are the three whose two-
year term expires this year, while
another alderman will have to be
elected in plnce of 11. B. Hicks, to I
fill an unexpired one-year term. This 1
will mean one new face on tht- city
council at least, and there Is little I
question but that the three first
named would be re-elected, if they
consent to allow their names to go
up again.
On the school board the three retiring members are the chairman, K.
IL Dezall, and Trustees Mrs. J.
Jackson and W. Henderson. It is expected that all three will again be
persuaded to run. On the police
commission, the term of W. F. Attridge expires this year, and he has
already given his consent to running
again in response to requests made
to him by friends.

WE. Kidder of Kalamazoo, Mi-
• Cntgan arrived in Montreal
over Canadian Pacific Railway lines,
recently with the best "fish story
of the year. It was a pretty good
story, and we had to believe him,
especially when he showed us a forty-
fiouml salmon packed awny in ice in
he observation car.
Now, Mr. Kidder is a pretty good
fisherman, but he says thut the experience he had while fishing in Cains
Hiver, New Brunswick is absolutely
unique, ind that as far as he knows
he was successful in hooking what is
probably a record salmon with a
trout rod and fly.
"This fish Is unquestionably the
largest hook hill, I have ever seen,"
tola   Mr.   Klddert "and thn snmo
by   _
wardens who viewed the fish in the
live box. But thc really great point
was the terrific fight that this fish
put up. This was so spectacular and
so fast and furious, accompanied by
rush after rush of 1 f><> to 200 feet, that
we had no time to take a picture of it.
"My canoe man and myself were
busy every second of thc time from
twenty minutes past four until after
dark. In fact up to the last few
minutes of the fight I stood with one
foot in the bow of the canoe constantly, when I was not in the canoe and
cn&sing the lish back and forth across
the stream.
'This lish wus forty-five and three-
fourths inches long measured in a
Pt might line. If measured around the
contour of tho body it would probably show two or three inches longer
than this. These measurements were
taken after lie had been fighting thr
wires of the live box for live or six
days, in which he undoubtedly lost a
great deal of weight. Perhaps if lis
had been measured when first taken
from the water he would have been
at least two inches more.
"Howevpr. nn matter how vou
look at it, he was big enough to suit
me, and thc act that it was a 'hook
blip and -leaping fish' instead of a
female or 'sulkcr' gave me that
much more satisfaction. Then, toft

ed by a vocal selection by Les Dwelley, of Lumherton, who favored with
"Spearmint." This, as usual, brought
down the house, and he was obliged
10 respond with an encore. Thc song,
"When Irish Eyes Are Smiling." was
sung by thc entire company.
The second toast of the evening
was that to the Grand Lodge, proposed by Brother D. Halcrow and
responded to by Brother E. Cook.
In proposing this toast to the Grand
Lodge, Brother Halcrow paid tribute
to thc value of the Grand Lodge,
claiming that while there had heen
ups and downs, it had been of Inestimable value to the cause for
which thoy stood. Brother Cook, of
Lumberton, in response, gave an out-
lino of the position which tho Grand
Lodge held to thc subordinate bodies,
likening it to the relations of the
federal government to the provinces,
making as it did the laws. With regard to the jurisdiction of the Grand
Lodge to which thoy belonged, ho
claimed it to have the distinction of
bcing the largest Grand Lodgo in the
world, taking in as it did Newfoundland, as well as thc rest of the Dominion. With its legislation committee at Ottawa, it was of much assistance to the various subordinate
lodges. It had been at the back of
some of the greatest efforts in the
1 cause of Protestantism, many of
1 which were well known to the mem-
ben of the lodge. It had field secretaries in each province. Through
it, he claimed, Orangism would be
upheld by men alwavs ready
to assist. He urged them to
be always ready to assist the Grand
Lodge In support of the principles
which wen- dear to all. He also intimated  that thc Grand  Lodge WOI
taking 0 keen interest in the juvenile
lodge which was about to be started,
they having compiled the necessary
ritual and led ure antl secret work.
In concluding, he paid tribute to
the Grand secretary, William Leigh,
of Toronto, who had been in harness
for over fifty years.
Thc next item on the program was
11 piano solo by Miss Thelma Bartle,
, which  was  heartily  encored.
A  vocal solo by Mr.  Hannah, en-
litttled "The Guard Ship," was similar-

On Wednesday, at 5 a.m., there
passed away at the St. Eugeiy- Hos-
pital, Margaret, beloved wife of Mr.
William Grecb, of Wardner, in her
2-lth year. The circumstances surrounding her death were particularly
sad, and in consequence of it a large
number of bereaved ones are left to
mourn the loss of a loving and dutiful mother, wife and daughter. The
deceased had been a patient for a
short time previous to the birth of a
baby boy on November 19th last,
following which came complications
of a nature which sometimes occur
in medical practice, baffling even to
the most efficient of doctors. Such
was this case; but while science failed to ward off the inevitable, the fight
made by Dr. MacKinnon, assisted by
the nurses at the hospital, served as
but another indication that Cranbrook is possessed of doctors whose
work and principles compare favorably with any place on the continent.
Though visably affected by his
grief, the sorrowing father and husband repeatedly intimated to a Herald representative his appreciation of
the devotion of Dr, MacKinnon and
the assistance of the nurses.
The deceased was a native of Vernal City, Utah, where she was born
in 1902, her parents now residing at
Glenwood, Alberta, to which place
the body is being taken this afternoon.
The late Mrs. Greeb was one who
was loved by all who knew her, and
htr passing loaves a place hard to
fill, both in her own home, where
the infant boy and two older brothers
are left to experience the loss of a
kind mother. Mr. Greeb has been for
throe yenrs night watchman at the
mill at Wnrdner.
Five brothers and two slaters of
her own  familv also remain.
'Having brightened their home for
but a little while. Rhonda, the five-
months' old tittle daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. G. K. McDonald, was called
home on Tuesday night when she
fell asleep in the arms of death tt
the family home on Armstrong
Avenue. The many friends of tht
bereaved family were shocked to
hear of the death of their little one,
is up till a few hours before the
child had been in its usual state of
health, and least expected of anything was the visitation that caused
thc gap that ean never be filled. Be-
sides the sorrowing parents, there
arc left two girl-, Helen. 8, and Jean,
4 years of age.
Thc funeral service was held on
Wednesday at '■> p.m.. from Christ
Church, Rev. F. V. Harrison officiating.
Tuesday noon the Cranbrook Rotary Club had as their guests the
Cranbrook Crembo Club, both hosts
and visitors bcing of the opinion that
u very profitable time was had. Following a delightful luncheon President Fred Scott gave a cordial address of welcome to the Employed
Boys, while Rotarian Dr. Green spoke
on physical fitness, which doubtless
will prove of great value to the boys.
For the Crembo Club boys Murray
MacFarlane and Fred Fossett responded, expressing their appreciation of
the hospitality shown them and
pointing out how the Rotarians might
be of assistance to them.

left for I,a Grande, Ore., where in
future he will make his home.
Known by many, Mr. Shira *
held in high esteem wherever he haa
resided since coming to Canada near
ly thirty years ago. In 1897 he came
on horseback via Walla Walla over
the Dewdney trail to Moyie. Here
he located many claims and worked
for many years, later staking claims
in the old Tracy Camp district, particularly in the Lewis Creek basin,
where he still owns property. For a
number of years he haa been engaged with the North Kootenay Lands
and Lumber Co., whose extensive
limits he helped cruise in 1906-1907;
he had been caretaker for them for
15 years, taking parties over the timber from time to time and working
in connection with the B.C. Forestry
Department during the summer.

Shower For Bride
Thursday evening last thc home of
Miss Jessie Fennessey was the scene
of a very pleasant function, when
Mrs. Denzil Maxwell was guest of
honor at a surprise party held for
the purpose of giving her a postnuptial shower. So taken by surprise was thc guest that it was some
time before she could realize that
all the presents appearing before
her when she was freed from her
blindfoldedness were hers and
not for Miss Florence Finley, at
whose birthday party she was supposed to be one of thc guests. Refreshment* and dancing concluded a
very merry evening for the twenty
or so girl friends present.

Following an operation for appendicitis she was convalescing, but it appears that when just about to return

into the night. Raviahtngly, intolerably sweet — moonlight, blossoms,
that song.  . . .
She ought not to havo come. She
was in ewry truth a ghost, growing
more ghostlike with every moment,
Sho wus an alien on hallowed, too
familiar ground; separate and apart
from all this trilling, bursting ecstasy.
That bird, this odor of n thousand
blossoms, this soft Southern air—
they brought things back too overpower ingly.
In the city one might delude oneself with work, friendship, quiet affection'—a thousand inconsequent
trifles. But here on her own ground,
where her roots struck deep, there
was no self-deluding. She wanted
life, love; she wanted Greg, She
wanted nothing else* in the world.
Nothing else would nnswer. He belonged to her—she to him. No stupid
quibblings of pride, honor, expedien
cy, could change that. That other
WOman—what was she to him? When
two people had belonged wholly to
each other, body, mind, soul, something had been created out of that
complete possession; something eternal and indestructible. That was
marriage—the marriage of true
minds. There was no other marriage.
If only for a moment that bird
would be still! She put her hands
over her ears, but the wild and piercing madness would not be shut out.
lt was like a cry, insistent and fierce.
It was like the cry of her soul to
Creg, so fierce, so anguished, it seemed he must hear nnd understand.
What were a few leagues more or
less of land and water between two
Immortal souls?
She turned with a sharp, convulsive movement, That cry, this odor
of a thousand, ten thousand blossoms
—she could endure them no longer.
She would go back. She would not
wait even for the morning. She
might not to have come. . . .
At the entrance to the balcony
Stood a bell boy in uniform—blinking
at her through the half darkness.
"Qentleman to see you, Miss," he
mumbled and then took himself off.
There appeared presently in the
rehway a substantial, square-built
figure. On his light summer coat the
moonlight showed a mourning band.
-Molly stood frozen, incredulous.
Il was a trick of her overwrought
senses. Grog was on his way to
France. . . , She had asked a miracle, yet dared not trust its fulfillment.
It was Greg, but changed—how
chnnged—broken and older—Greg,
whoso face was never given to show
what he felt. Ile stood there with his
head bent a little, yet looking at her!
-wailing as if for her to give him
pei mission to cross the threshold.
She tried to speak, to call his name,
bin the syllable died on her lips.
There wore less than half a dozen
steps between them, and yet moment
after moment passed—other mo-1
ments—and still they only went on
Unking at each other, as if that
were tlie sole means of communication left between them. It wns
dn ndful to see Greg like that—broken  and older, his head  bent.
"Greg, you did hem*—you came
. . . ." She found words at last,
took a step toward him.
He put out his hands as if to ward
hev off. "You must hear first what
I have to say." He indicated a rustic bench, but Molly moved back toward the iron railing, stood with her
hands gripping it  behind her.
"I see. . . ." She was surprised
herself to note how casual and matter-of-fact she sounded. "You've
como to tell me that you do want
your freedom, after all. Hut"— she
glanced round still n little dazedly—
"how did you know I was here?"
"Myron Eldredge—-I wired him,

in front of her. Dut speech seemed
more difficult for him than for her.
When other moments had passed in

How to Play
new series of lessons by
Wynne Ferguson
Copyright 1926, by Hoyk, Jr.
If the question were askul: "Which
do you enjoy the more, winning or losing," practically every auction player
would reply: "winning." Thafis probably right and yet it is a well known
(act that the winning player is always
willing to quit while lhe losing one will
play all night if he can get a game, li
seems to bc human nature to desire to
rash in on one's profits, to quit a winner, and yet that is one of the greatest
mistake* n player can make. The time
lO keep on playing is when you are
winning. "Push your lut!: and limit
your losses," is one of the greatest
maxims of the game and yet the one
least followed. When you are holding
goo-1 cards during an evening's play,
tlon't think about taking home your
profits, Keep on playing while your
lunk lasts ii nil don't stop until it changes.
On the other hand, it you are losing,
don't keep on playing. A bad luck
streak is one of the hardest things to
break there is, so don't try it. One of
Un.* best "money" players in the country, and by "money player" is meant a
man who plays auction bridge for high
stakes nnd wins, makes it an invariable
rule to stop playing if lit; loses three
.rubbers in succession, [t may not be
fctvwl sportsmanship but it certainly is
good judgment. Think it over and see
whether you are getting the most out
of your good cards and losing as little
as possible when yon are holding poor
cards. If you can learn this lesson and
stick lo it, you have made great strides
toward becoming a winning player.
The other night a point was raised
une of the New Vork Card Clubs that
outied considerable discussion. The
dealer bid one club, second hand [auaed,
♦.ml the dealer's partner held the following hand:
Hearts—iO, 8,4, 2
Clubs— now;
Diamonds— :o,9, 7,6, S
Should he deny his partner's club Md or
pass? As a general rule a player sfaorfd
overbid his partner's bid when be baa
two or less of the suit, but to justify
such procedure he should haw at least
one trick in his hand, either in the tint
bid or half a trick in the suit bid aid
half a trick on the side. Never dew
your partner's bid without a trick w
your hand. Such procedure is as bad aa
passing with many tricks in the other
nits but only one card of your part-
er'a suit. Aud ion is a partnership guaa
nd you cm get the best results oaty
by telling your partner the truth. Whe*
vou deny his suit bid you should tell
him two things: First, that you have
only two small cards or less of hia suit;
and second, that yoa have at least a
trick in your hand aad a salt worth
playing for. If those dementi mnm\

"Forgive you—1 . . .?" Molly
mnde u faint, incredulous motion toward herself.
"Yes. That day when you came
—I didn't understand. I was vicious,
brutal—mad with jealousy. . . ,"
You jealous . . .'.'" She made
another incredulous movement. "Oh,
, 1—thut woman. . . ."
'You needn't huve been. Vou
know there's never been anybody but
you—there never could be. That was
the one thing that hardened my heart
against you—you knew there couldn't
be. Now l—can't even ask you to
forgive me.  . . ."
"Oh no; it is you who must forgive. . . .    But how. . . .?"
He touched the band of crepe on
his sleeve. "My mother—she went
all at once like a tree with the nxe
laid to the root. She told me. I
think she wunted to tell me sooner,
but she didn't know how. ..."
"Your mother—she told you .. . V
Holly was silent with the wonder of
that. Then, "Greg, you mustn't
think I'm not guilty—just as guilty
as you believed me—only I didn't
know it. It was my own stubborn,
headstrong will. Tonight, for the
first time, I've seen it ull clearly."
"Never mind ubout that. After
all, it wasn't your going—or the reason given—that hurt most. It was your
not letting me help you. I knew
what it was like for a woman of your
sort alone in a great city. I used to
sit alone and picture it to myself—
the hardships, privations, hunger
p.-rhaps. ... It was torture. For
yenrs I tried to find you. Then that
dny when you came into my office, I
thought you luul what you wanted—
all you wanted. ... I thought maybe you—pitied me a little. . . ."
Molly caught his big, square
hands in hers, covered them with
penitent, hot kisses, with hot, self-
reviling tears. "You're so much bigger than I am, Greg—always so much
finer und more generous. I'm ashamed to tell you—1 didn't realize even
then thut that was one of the ways
I was hurting you. I was thinking
only of my own pride, my own miserable self-respect. * , *"
He did not say anything at all.
He pulled her head down against his
breast, smoothed and stroked her
hair, made awkward little patting
motions about her shoulders. "1 wish
you wouldn't cry like that," he said
after a while.

Re Amendments - Fishery Regulations
Dear Sir:
For your information and other
interested members, I beg to advise
that the general close season for
trout has been modified, hereunder,
I beg to quote P.C. 876, paragraph
4, as follows:
'Excepting as herein otherwise
provided, in the waters of the Mainland cast of the 121st meridian and
in that portion of the Mainland lying
north of a line running due east and
west through the town of Clinton,
no one shall fish for, catch or kill
trout of nny kind from the fifteenth
dny of November in each year to tho
twenty-third day of Mny following,
both days Inclusive, ia streams, and
from the first day of March to the
thirtieth day of April, in each year,
both duys inclusive, in  lakes."
According to the above mentioned
regulation nngling can be conducted
J during the winter for trout in lake»,
provided climatic conditions will allow, but fishing for trout through
the iee in any waters is prohibited.
As you are already aware, accord-
ng to P.C. 456, paragraph 6, provided that fishing for trout in ftt-
mier, Horseshoe, Smith, Bock and
Twin Lakes may be conducted from
April fifteenth to November fourteenth, in each year, both days inclusive.
There is an open season for Rocky
Mountain whiteflsh, chub and Dolly
Varden trout, char or Bull trout.
I am, air,
Your obedient servant,
Fishery Overseer.

At the annual meeting held hist
week of the Fernie Curling Club,
the membership last yeur wus shown
to have dropped to 01, a much smaller number than is usually enrolled,
but fairly satisfactory when the poor)
playing season of lnst year is taken
into consideration. The report nlso
showed the Club to be in rather bail
shape financially, and brought out
several suggestions for the raising
of money during the coming seuson.
One of these, thnt a free-for-all hon
spiel be held, was adopted, and other j
will quite likely be used before tho
season is finished.
The following officers were elected
for the 192G-27 eason:
Hon. Pres  Harvey Brown
President   A.  Watson
1st Vice-Pres  Wm. Baldrey
2nd Vice-Prea  J. R. Wallace
Chaplain   Rev. Best
Secretnry   A. Walrte
Executive Committee—P.   Bean,   J.
Wilson, J. MacDonald.
Several suggestions were made in
connection with improvement of thc
procedure of the game. It was finally decided that on ench Friday the
skip would take the lead's position
and each player would take the position above the one usually played.
Last year's system of draw was
adopted. It was also decided to start
the season with a free-for-all bonspiei and that the president nnd vice-
president competitions tuke place on
New Year's day.
The fees were set nt $12.00 for former players, and $8.00 for green curlers.    The ladies' fees are $5.00.

The annual celebration of the Columbia Valley St. Andrew's Society
was held on the night of the 30th
ultimo, in the hall at Wilmer, when
all llio members of the various elans
gatherod to do honor to the memory
of Scotland's pation staint. A tele*
gram was received from His Honor

brethren in Trail.
The same cluss of miM weather
which prevail id during iaa* winter is
marking the opening of this. There
has been no cold weather up to the
present in the Lake Windermere district, and such snow as did fall has

a chinook, the ground being quite
bare on all the lower levels.
The October number of the British
Columbia Public Service Bulletin,
published by the Provincial Bureau
of Information, Victoria, has just
come to hand. It contains a lot of
general interest, but this number has
three items of special interest pertaining to the Lake Windermere district generally. It announces that
the legislature will meet on December
Kith and will be formally opened by
His Honor K. Randolph Bruce, this
bcing his first legislative appearance
since his appointment as Lieutenant
Governor of the province. The second is more widely spread in its effect and is a short synopsis of the
existing Game Act inasfar as it
applies to trap lines. From now on
all trap lines must be registered, the
form being* made out in quadruplicate and applies equally to Indians
as to white men. A tentative licence
will be granted to the applicant for
1926. If he observes the laws carefully then this licence becomes a permanent one for future years. The
other item is the confirmation of the
report which has been going the
rounds for a time that British Columbia Provincial Police Constable E. A.
Vachon, who for several years did
such splendid duty in this neighborhood, was seriously injured in a motor accident while in the discharge
of his duty. His companion, B.C. P.

Although the results of the recent
plebiscite on beer parlors went
against the efforts of the Social Service league, they are not at all discouraged. They put up a hard,
straight, dean, fight fur what they
believed to be in the best interest
of the city. Now that the decision
went opposite to what they hoped, it
will be found that they will be the
first to aid the government in its attempts to earry out the will of the
majority in a proper manner. They
realize that many voted for beer parlors believing thut they would help
to eliminate bootlegging and restrict
the sale of hard liquor, and help the
business of the eity. Opinions differ widely on this matter, and the
experiment will be closely watched.
In the meantime the continuous instruction of the voting will be curried

THERE are two Lit- nf advice whicli it is folly
lo ignore in this season. The one i-* "Do Your
Christmas Shopping Early," and "Send Ynur Christmas Mail Early" is the second. Fools heed neither,
but if the observance of both is proof of ran* wisdom then tin* world iN wiser,
Ii was but a few years ago lhat (In* major portion of the Christmas shopping was done during
Christinas week, and the Christmas rush in the mails
did not begin until tlie eleventh hour. The result
was that unfavorable shopping conditions and congested mails ruined Christmas Day for countless
How much saner and how much more satisfactory for I'll concerned arc the modern practices of
starting tbe gift-buying season in November, and of
starting the gifts through the mails in ample time
to insure their punctual delivery.
Whether one looks at the question frnm the
selfish nr impersonal points of view, the arguments
are all in favor of early shopping aud early mailing.
Early shopping gives one tlie pick of the new
and undepleted Christmas stocks, leisurely selection,
more satisfactory service and less jostling. Early
mailing is a guarantee of timely delivery and minimizes the dangers of damage and loss in transit.
Should there bc any to whom the arguments are
unconvincing, let them give a though! to the merchant and liis sales force and to the postal employees
whose one desire is to please the public, but who
are powerless to help those who won't help themselves.

the approaching Yulctide, witli all that means, bul
they illustrate as well the growtll of the city aud

Sometimes we are apt to think of Cranbrook
in terms only of population and nf public improvements- street paving, playgrounds and other items
of the kind.
But the real earmark of the progressive city is
its stores. The real badge of prosperity is the type
of retail stores a city boasts.
The advertising columns of this newspaper demonstrate the fact that Cranbrook has stores ot
which any city may be proud and as metropolitan
as those of many boasting larger population. And
the stores themselves are as interesting as tbe advertising announcements they make.

■HE untimely death this week of A. O. Cochrane,
member of the Legislature for N'orth Okanagan, removes from public life one whom it was confidently expected by bis friends would have forged
to the front of affairs by his own merit before very
long. lie won the seat from Dr. K. C. McDonald,
after the latter had been named as a cabinet minister, and Mr. Cochrane soon proved iu the Legislature that he \\a> a power in the ranks of the
Opposition, particularly nn questions affecting the
Okanagan Valley. In the event of the formation
of a provincial Conservative administration, there
is little question but that he would have been given
a place.
The opening of a Conservative seat in this unexpected way naturally gives rise to the question
as to whether this untoward happening will be the
means of providing a seat for Dr. Tolmie. the newly
elected Conservative leader for the province. A
lot depends on the attitude of tlte government in
this respect, and by this no doubt the Conservatives
will be guided. The by-election has to be held within hx months, and while the vacancy in North Okanagan could now scarcely be filled in time for the

Annual Banquet Friday Last

of the friends from Lumberton and
other places it wns indeed a pleasure
for them to hnve the opportunity of
being present. This was followed
by the usual singing of the song of
good  fellowship.
The toast to the Indies was then
proposed by Brother J. A. Young,
who showed himself to be a man of
exceptional daring in ■the manner
in which he made the proposal. How
he got away with this is still a mystery to those present. Mr. Young
intimated that his would not be the
ordinary manner, and he brought
down the house when he reud excerpts from various papers throughout the continent with regard to the
up-to-dateness of the girl of today.
In conclusion, Mr. Young showed
himself in his true colors, an ardent
admirer of the fair sex, by quoting
possibly one of the finest tributes to
women that possibly could have been
Mrs. Robson of Lumberton and
Mrs. Baxter of Crunbrook were naturally tuken by surprise by the unique proposul of Mr. Young, but were
equal to the occasion, und mnde quite
a hit with their responses. Mrs. Baxter particularly coming out more than
even In her witty reply.
Mr. Jock McDonald next contributed with the selection "I Love a Lassie," and in response to an encore,
pleased the audience with the recitation of "Burn's Address to the Haggis."
The community song, led hy Mr.
Les Dwelley, was the next item on
the program, the solo pnrt "Hi Ho.
the Merry O" being taken by him.
Mrs. Norgrove next favored with
a vocal solo entitled "Little Mnn," to
which she responded with another
pleasing selection, "Out of the Dusk."
Mr. John Fingal Smith then favored with a selection on the pipes.
The toast of the evening, which
concluded the function, was thut of
"The Faith of Our Fathers." The
speaker, Brother W. Dobson, of Lumberton, in making the toast, put forward the question as to whether they
were keeping fuith with those extremely religious men who hnd
kept Protestantism in the fore-
I ground, With respect to the allegiance to the British Empire nnd
sustaining it, he also questioned whether they were keeping faith. He referred t0 the spirit of the Empire
Loyalists, and also referred to the
present tendency of reducing our relation to the mother country to that
of a position in which the King was
about the only sign that we had left.
He did not see any reason why we
should begin to dismember the British Empire.
In response to this proposal, Rev.
Harrison was first to reply. In on
interesting manner he showed how
the Church to which he belonged had
been instrumental in sustaining and
keeping up the fuith for which they
Rev. Wallace reviewed in nn interesting way many angles hy which
it could he judged whether or not we
had been living up to the faith of
our fathers—greater liberty, freedom
.from fear, nnd an open Bible were
among the things which we continue
to enjoy as a result of loyalty. He
regretted, however, that the children
in the schools were learning more
about Buddha than they were ahout
Christ through the Bible. The L.O.L.
were using their efforts to secure the
use of the Bible in the school.
lu nn address that was attentively
listened to, Rev. M. S. Blackburn
mnde u valuable contribution to the
reply to the toast, in which he paid
tribute to Ornngism, claiming thut
there wus much for which the church
wus indebted to them. He referred
also to other commendable principles
for which Ihe Orange Order stood.
Rev. Mr. Fleming, who concluded
the replies, paid tribute to the useful
Work which the lodge wns performing. He felt that theie wu., much
room for improvement in the work
Of the Church. While in the popular
conception of the term we hud the
open Bible today, he wondered whether or not it wns more often closed
—und whether we were living up to
the hest that was in us. He paid
tribute to the zealousness of the
faithful of the past, and wus of the
opinion thnt more could be accomplished if they could again catch a
little of the zeal of their forefathers.
Miss Almns Sarvis rendered n piano
solo, "An Old English Country
Dance," which was much appreciated
and encored.
Mr. Les Dwelley was forced to favor with unother vocal selection, singing this time "Barcelona," for which
he won great applause.

On Tuesday the Young People's
Society met at their regular weekly
meeting. This meeting proved to be
very interesting and instructive, taking the form of a "mock trial." Mr.
Spreull, to whom the young people
owe a great deul, acted in the important position of judge. Mr. Jack
Barber and Mr. Tom Marshall filled
in splendidly as constable and court
crier, Miss Smith filling the import-
nnt place of clerk of the court.
The jury was drawn for and Mr.
Norman Wasson selected as foreman.
The case was a breach of promise
one. The plaintiff, Miss Vivian Kummer, sued Mr. Bill Leigh for $200,-
000. Vernon Carlyle nnd Winnifred
Beale acted for the crown, Stanley
Moffatt and Miss Ivy Dezall acting
for the defence.
The lawyers for the crown presented a very convincing case. Mr. Harold Kummer, Mr. Graham Dale and
Miss Elsie Willis acting as witnesses,
the plaintiff ulso taking thc witness
stand. The lawyers for the defence
on the other hund presented an equally convincing cuse. Rev. B. Wallace,
Miss Nora Brander, Miss Mary Shaw,
Miss .McDermid, Miss Vera Baxter,
Mrs. Wallace nnd Miss Aubrey McKowan acted as witnesses for the de-
fendant, ulso taking the witness
Miss Winnifred Beale tried very
hard to get the defence witnesses
twisted, and her arguments were
splendid. Both sides summed up their
ease and left it to the jury to bring
in a verdict for their side. Judge
Spreull summed up the case, impressing on the jury the signs of insanity
and if so they must reduce the indemnity.
The jury were out for a short time,
and brought in a verdict of "guilty,"
damages to be 30 cents. Judge
Spreull closed the court, ruling the
counsel for the crown pay the expenses.
A splendid lunch wns served, and
a vote of thanks tendered Mr. Spreull
for so kindly assisting the Society,
The meeting closed by singing
"God Save the King."
The meeting next Tuesduy tukes
the form of n "stunt night."

The obstructions the expedition

the men engaged in the undertaking.
The whole narrative is too much forgotten or ignored by the average native son who was not born at that
period, and our histories and school
books overlook the stupendous difficulties overcome. The "nurrative,"
as it was mildly called, tolls of the
curious incidents of a journey which
illustrates so remarkably the powers
of endurance possessed by the British
soldier, whether belonging to the regular or to our colonial army. Colonel Wolseley expressed the highest
admiration for the resource shown
hy the Canadians, whether shooting
the rapids or using the axe to clear I
away what appeared impenetrable obstruction. It w^s this splendid quality that Colonel Wolseley wished to
have in his expedition on tho Nile

Impede   Rather  Than   Help
The native tribes were not of any
assistance. In fact, they had to be
treated with bribes of presents. They
expected to be well-paid by travelers
in presents and provisions, so thoir
presence along the line of route added to the difficulties to be overcome,
as all such presents would have to be
carried by tho troops, and every
pound of extra weight was a serious
For the conveyance of tb" provisions and stores between Thunder
Bay and Sabandownn, a considerable
transport would be required, all the
material for which would have to bo
sent there in steamers, as also the
forage required for animals, for neither hay nor grass was to be bad on
the spot.
Indeed, to get a military force to
Red River, it was necessary to semi
it complete with all warlike appliances, and with at least two months'
provisions, through a wilderness for
a distance of about 600 miles, whore
no supplies of any description were
obtainable. It was no wonder, therefore, that tho government paused
and considered well beforo they committed nny other Imperial troops to
an operation beset with such difficulties, and where any serious mistakes
on the part of those who conducted
it would most probably have led to
disastrous results. ,
Expedition  On  Its  Way
Kventi were thickening. A force
of seven hundred volunteers and five
hundred regulars under command of
Colonel Garnet J. Wolseley was soon
wending its weary way by lakes and
rivers and wilds to revenge the death
of Seott, to restore British-Canadian
rule and to bring peace and harmony
to a now hunted and cowardly people. Royal commissioners had meanwhile been sent up by the Dominion
government and Donuld A. Smith,
raised to the peerage us Lord Strath-
cona and Mount Royal, had used his
personal influence and that of the
Hudson's Bay Company to restore
order, without much avail. They had,
however, with the aid of Bishop
Tache, prevented any more Scott episodes.
On August 24th Wolseley reached
Fort Garry, in the heart of the Rod
River settlement, only to find that
tho tiny phantom of a republic had
crumbled into dust and that Riel had
fled to the United States. There he
was destined to pass several years of
exile, and from thence he eventually
came to lead another and more serious insurrection.
Colonel Wolseley quickly restored
order, and escaped the Lieutenant-
Governorship which it was understood
be was willing to accept, highly
praised the volunteer portion of his
force and returned home to become,
eventually, commander-in-chief of
the army, and one of the two or
three leading British soldiers of his
Province It Formed
Manitoba was organized under the

came the preat prairie city and commercial centre — Winnipeg. Such
was the constitutional birth of Manitoba. It was, and is, a small pro.
vince, but comprises within it the
most fertile soil in the world, and the
most marvelous wheat-bearing qualities. North, east and west of it
stretched the boundless pruiries and
plains, rivers, valleys, lakes and
streams, of what were then the practically unknown Northwest Territories,
The conditions on the Red River
during this period wns lawlessness
and a daring defiance of everything
thnt could promote peace.    Tho fire
brand,  Kiel, seemed to control the
country.    It was acknowledged on all
sides that  the proceedings   of   the
Canadian government were unfortunate and injudicious, und were caused I
byJ   ignorance   of   conditions.    But'
the   Colonial   Secretnry    afterwards
commended    publicly    tho    singular

Two   commissioners   from   Canada,
Grand Vicar Thibault, who had spout
more than thirty years in tbe Northwest, and Colonel doSnlebory, son of
the Vicur of f hateauquny, wore sent
on a  mission of peace ami concilia-
lion.    Their papers, including a proclamation  of  December   oth,   were
seized   "hy   order"   hy   O'Donoghue,
and Riel informed ihem through the
"secretary" that   their   instructions!
from  Canada  failed  to  reveal  "any
requisite   power   to   treat   with   I hi' I
people."    Tbo very reverend  gentle-!

Millions of dollars worth of property goes up in smoke every year. Fire
destroys many beautiful homes and
buildings. Fire is aho a loss to the
nation as a whole. Many people are
left homeless by the great plague—
Fire. The factories which have sup-
plied the people of this Nation with
useful articles, and have supported
many families who work in the different departments, can be destroyed
in twenty-four hours by the red
plague—Fire. Over two-thirds of
theee losses are caused by carelessness or ignorance. The amount of)
fires caused by ignorance is decreasing rapidly. Fire prevention is
taught in all schools today, and fre
quently  talked  of  from  the public
My parents have always told and
shown me the danger of fire. They
have also tried in every way to prevent fire in our home. We never
light the stove with coal-oil or gasoline, as it may explode when the
match is used. Matches are never
left in anything but a metal container, and always in a cool place. When
we are emptying ashes we are very
careful to put them in a tin box and
not put them near the back fence,
as they may catch fire. After mother has dusted with a oiled rag it is
put ire a tin box in a cool place, because it starts fire very easily. Fire
is sometimes caused by defective wiring. We are careful to see the electric wire is covered by the casing,
which will prevent the wire from
burning other things near at hand.
My father never neglects to have the
stove pipes cleaned monthly, and to

A social evening was held in the
Club Hall on Tuesday evening by the
Wardner Parent-Teacher Association,
to which were invited the townspeople, including the gentlemen. The
turnout was rather discouraging, only
four of the townsmen being present,
and while a few visiting ladies weru
present, not all of the members were
able to attend. The evening opened
at 8 o'clock, by the singing of
0 Canada, and the usual business
meeting of the association was held.
Funds on hand permitting their purchase, the first of the items necessary
to the school were brought under discussion bv the president, in the chair,
and it was mentioned that n clock,
and also a first-aid outfit, he purchased for use in the schools immediately. This motion was carried, and the
recording-secretary instructed as to
their purchase. This was the only-
piece of new business voted upon
that evening. A program was offered by Miss Laurine Corbett, taking
the place of the program convenor,
owing to the unavoidable absence of
the latter, and included a piano st lection by Mrs. Paul Storey, a recitation
by Walter MaeKenzie. and a piano
solo by Miss Laurine Lawson. All
three items were admirably rendered by the performers, Walter's, a
comedy-poem relating to the universal habit of '1,» feminine sex of driving thc family car from the rear seat,
bringing out a good laugh. A vote
qf thanks wbb offered the artists of
the evening by the association. The
meeting then closed with the singing
of "God Save The King," and the
business meeting adjourned. The
following hour was spent socially and
in games, and at ten o'clock, refreshments were served bv the social convenor, Mrs. C, Hamrin, and her committee,

the B.C. Agent-General, in London
thus becoming a medium for disseminating reliable information as to
mining possibilities in this district,
In the British Isles:
East Kootenay was first proved as
a mineralized area with the shipping
of lend ores from the St. Eugene
Mine on Moyie Lake In 1898, a year
marked by the advent of the B.C.
Southern Railway. Prior to thnt
lime, mining in the district wai
carried on under adverse conditions
The North Star Mine, pioneer shipper of lead aud zinc in the crude, had
worked under the handicap of a long
wagon haul and transference of its
ore to river steamers plying between
Fort Steele and Jennings, Montana,
from whence its produce was conveyed  by rail to the smelter at Butte.
Imini-nit    Po»ai bili tie*
Last Kootenay owes its existence
as a proved mineral field to the lead-
zinc flotation process of ore reduction. Immense and easy of access
uh are ils ore bodies, notably those
of the Sullivan and North Star-Stem-
winder Mines at Kimberley—there
were d: •■,- days in the history of the
mining industry prior to the application of the new process to the reduction of Kast Kootenay ore. Today
llu* Sullivan, with ils recorded net
earnings of $11,216,000 in 1926,
lanks with tin* world's most outstanding metalliferous mines, and it is
reasonable to presume in the face of
vigorous development by the Porcupine Gobi fields Mining Company,
that the North Star-Stem winder will
shortly run the Sullivan a close second in point of production, situated
as it is Immediately across the gulch
Irom   the  famous dividend-earner.
It is also quite in order to mention
lhat active diamond-drilling opera-
lions are being carried out by the
Bennetts of Minneapolis to the eastward of and immediately adjoining
Ihe Sullivan property. Tbat opera*
tion is to be credited to mining successes attained during the past few
years by reason of splendid transportation facilities, the new and profitable treatment uf ores, and recognition by millions, far-sighted and
Highly  experienced   mining   men
An Interesting ceremony was held
in Kimberley one evening recently,
when a new lodge of tbe Daughters
und Maids of England was instituted
under the direction of Mrs. J. Brown,
D.D.G.P., and a degree team of ladies
of Princess Aliee lodge, No. fi, of Nelson.
The new members were initiated,
after which nomination and election
of officers took plnce, which resulted
as follows: Past President, Sister A.
Marsden; President, Sister Boardman;
Vice-President, Sister Mason; Chaplain, Sister Baxter; Secretary, Sister Crewdson; Treasurer, Sister B.
Boardman; First Guide, Sister Thompson; Second Guide, Sister Martha
Cunliffe; Third Guide, Sister Florence
Mason; Fourth Guide, Sister M. Clar-
ricoates; Inside Guard, Sister Myra
Hughes; Outside Guard, Sister Hale.
An address was made by Bro. T.
Marsden, and the president and chaplain encouraged the memhers to go
ahead and work together for the good
of the order, remembering always the
high ideals for which it stands.

having been dem-
ated as a mining field of im-
e me deposits. The truth of
assertion is made manifest by
onslant presence of mining enrs of high repute, who. nn be-
nf big mining interests, are superintending prospecting work of an
eminently s< .< ntlfic ordt r, conducted on a scale so extensive as to make
the prospector of bygone days catch
his bri ath   ti sheer astonishment.
It s an unalterable ami undisputed
t'aet lhat East Kootenay's ores lie
leep. A sal'i' assertion to make is
hat there an* hut few surface mines
n the district, and that condition ob-
ains in copper deposits as in bodies
if zinc-lead a feature that promises
much for the permanence of the local
nining industry.
Copper Ore Bodtei
.There are several mining men in
he district who are building on the
hope of developing copper mines
.vithin easy reach of transportation.
On Ilull River, thirty miles east of
Cranbrook, less than six miles from
the KooU-nay Central Railway, active
prospecting in a body of grey copper
has been conducted for a period of
three years. Another deposit of grey
copper located on Copper Creek near
Skookumchuck, is responding satisfactorily after several years of exploration. It is also generally conceded that a reputedly large deposit
of low grade copper ore on White-
fish Creek, tributary of the St. Mary's
River, warrants the attention of capital, being militated against only by a
lack of railway facilities. Bodies of
silver-lead ore of excellent quality
on Hell-roaring Creek, served partly
by wagon road and partly by pack
trail are also being worked, one
group quite extensively as is indicated by the owners having recently
imported a small air compressor for
the driving of a five hundred foot
tunnel, for the opening up of the ore
body nt depth. Another promising
group is situated on Perry Creek, a
free milling gold property, in which
local men are interested. There, it is
authentically reported gold ore has
been uncovered that carries values in
excess of seven ounces to the ton in
gold. It is quite within the limit of
nroh: bility that this mine will soon
be on lhe shipping list, development
naving been pushed to thn point of
practically proving the five ore shoots
Known to exist on the property.
On Ho.:eth:cf Creek in the Windermere district, Cranbrook prospectors recently uncovered a three foot
ledge of silver-lend ore, assaying up
to $160.00 per ton. Driving in at
depth on a fissure vein on Lesser
Sand ("reek has revealed the presence
of a workable and well defined shoot
of silver-lead ore of undoubted quality. It is authentically reported that
the owners of these properties have
received flattering offers for their
It is yet too early to predict the
future of non-metallic mining in the
district, nevertheless the erection of
a plant for the treatment of gypsum
is by no means improbable, that, by
reason of the fact that gypsum is now
lieing mined at Mayook, ten miles
east of Cranbrook on the B.C. Southern Railway, tho Canada Cement
Co., of Montreal, taking eighty tons
of material per week from their new. I
ly acquired property at that point, j
The Mayook gypsum deposit com-
prises cloven claims, two only of |
which ore held by the Canada Cement
people. Two other gypsum deposits
are known to exist in the district, one
being situated at Wnrdner on the
B.C. Southern Railway, the other being situated at Bull River within four
miles of rail transportation. I
May   Mean   Big   Smelter
The  inference   to  be  drawn   from
the   erection,  at  a cost  of approximately  $2,000,000  of  the  huge  ore
reduction  plant of thn Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co. at Kimberley, and an auxiliary  plant of 600
tons daily capacity at Moyie, is that i
East   Kootenay   is soon  to  have  its
smelter.    Mining men are predicting]
an output of 8,000 tons of silver-lead I
ore a day within the next few years,
basing their calculations on impending shipments from the North Star
Stemwinder Mine, coupl<«t to inrrean*
en to srnnll operators to ship ore now
on their dumps, when BUch shipping
a  no longer  militated  against  by a
long   and   expensive   railway   haul.
Assuredly   East   Kootenay  will   have
its  smelter   soon.     Everything  now
points to the early erection of such
a Utility,    It  Is an open  secret that
the  Porcupine  Goldfleldi   people ar
contemplating such a move.    Mining
men  in  East  Kootenay are  looking
forward to big things.    Their optimism is fully justified, the districts of
( ranbrook and Columbia are rapidly
coming into their own.    East  Kootenay   is   fast   forging   to   the   front
as a producer of mineral wealth.
