and the Ledger, tho only organ of the

again be reuurrccted.
The Idea pressed itself on (
who looked over the ground.
Colonel .lames Baker, It. L. T Qal-I
bralth and their associates many a
year ago took up tbo ground and
started tunnelling opt rations to try to
get under the bed .if tho old lake already referred lo. Tin main tunnel I
"dried ou Uie rignt bank of Perry
" 'ok and progress \1 to failure from
* cause or another under tin nanu*
the -.Mui't Conls Tuunel." It is
there still, but Iii a dangerous condl-1
linn. The idea prompting Its son«
sirnction was sound, the spirits of
Ihose concerned wen willing, but tin
(tuaiices and Uie fearful costs of alt
manner of supplies in those days killed the project. Utter on tin* perry
Creek Hydraulic Company took up
the ground and tapped the creek
some four miles above the Palls for
power, They run their flume down lit
a point below the Mont Cenis and din
a considerable amount of work, during the course of which gold iu very
fair quantity was taken out. The Inverted syphon which carries the water
of the Hume across the shallow valley under Falls Creek caused trouble
from the beginning, owing to tlte
manner of its rf vetting and general
construction, but the enterprise, as a
whole, would have been a proven
money tanker long since but for
death of two of the parties most
largely Interesled In its promotion
Their estates were wound Up ut fifty
cents to llie dollar with the result Lhat
the entire strain wns thrown on one
or two of the directors who found it
quite Impracticable to pa) their own
allotments and carry the wi Ighl. of the
responsibility of tho deceased members.    They, therefore,   cloned   down

wash  cheaply and  quickly, but will |
have to be handled very carefully as
It has a tendency to Bllde j
Willi judicious handling the property !
bas a good chance of becoming u pro-!
duclng mine during '.Ills next season."!
Readl-g those expert and carefully,
considered reports of public officials,
ono Is puzzled to know what could be
wrong with tin* property, or what was
tho case at the hack of its not being:
'i volopcd? The answer is, the polo
fault with the propoi ition is that It is I
not along    somo  back    trail    In  the
ilush-and-niusli country of the depths
of Alaska, If It wore, men would ,
pawn their etornnl iouIi to gel to It,,
and men  of Lhe Jack   I-on dun  type'
would write glzzard-ci rvlng shocker'-
about the parka-chui men who, haulod
and dragged by huskies, fought snow
blizzards and chewed dog flesh to get
first on tlie ground.   Just because  ll
lies at our door, within ton miles   of
the C, P. It. track.;, it was neglected;
of men.   "Mineral propi rtios of high ;
value arc not without value except In
t'.eir own country."   it really looks
like that all the world over.
Now  Captain   E.   B,   Rodgers  has j
taken hold of lhe proposition and In a ,
little time*  people  will   wake up and 1
discover that he has discovered, or
rather, re-discovered something In lhe |
gold mining line really worth while.

There are different
grades of mixed pickling
spice. You can get it with
8 or 10 varieties or you can
get it with 15 or ltj. Pickling spice can be cheapened and rendered less effective in making your
ketchups and pickles by
using a number of the
cheaper spices and none of
the more expensive varieties. These are the ones
thai give the finished product that delightful flavor
that brings it praise from
every member of the family and every visitor.
It N because our Mixed
IMrkllnir Spice contains the In nre number of varieties nnd
because il gives the
pickles, ketchup*, and
sauces Ihe tlutnr you
so much desire that
we urge you so strongly to use it.

A man doesn't necessarily need lo bo
a politician or ovon :i groat student
of Canadian history to know tbat wltli
Liberals In power Canada has good
times and prosperity and with Conservatives In power times of depression, Idle men and commercial stagnation. This isn't only the case just
now but has been repeated so often In
the last hundred years that it has be-
come a genuine political barometer
of business conditions.
The old-fashioned mother who
taught her boy that honesty and virtue was the best policy and would always be rewarded, would have some
hard shocks were she alive today. This
ls the day of political pull when thc
distant relationship of sume politician
Is worth more than all Die ability and
Integrity one man could possess. The
inun wbo believes in honesty and virtue ts walking in the lowly path:; of
duty, while nincompoops are Bitting
in the easy chairs trying to, dictate
lifs course, Witness Canadian military affairs for example.
j It Is again rumored that a provincial election will be held In tbe near
, future, tlie date reported to having
, lieen llxed for October flth, Tiiere Is.
: however, no official announcement.
Premier Mcllridc is reported to have
i said some time ago that he knew tin*
! date for the election but that he was
not telling anyone. We wonder if It
is possible that we may waken up
i some morning and find tliat the elec-
j tlon has been held. Premier McBride
[ and his machine may slip a good one
over on tlle dear public and hold their
lown election. It is quito evident tlu
I voters' lists, tlie cause of the delay.
I nre about ready.
On Friday night a patriotic dance is
In ing held at Jaffray, when the residents oi' that town arc giving a dance
lo assist the patriotic society. The
.laffray people look for a good number of Cranbrook citizens to be ou

.laffray has al wills patronized anything of a like nature held in Cranbrook.

Humor has it that the Ilrst afternoon of tbe fair wlll witness one of
tin* most closely contested events ever
pulled off on the grounds of the Agricultural Association. The entries
will lie small but enthusiasm and rivalry will make up for thut point. In
fact it is not safe to walk along Armstrong -and Baker streets Just now,
Vou may be held up to express an
opinion or even to bock lt If need be.
 Cranbrook people aro. honest,   Let
| tills bn said to tholr crnillt. Klsn why
| should they be bllknd by every
! smooth-tongued rogue that drifts
through. Only honest men would be-
lleve all thn sensational and tragedlcal
Btorles Invented by the sure-thing man
on his cotcli-eui-fliilck dash through
town, Wo have many of them every
yoar in somo disguise from the sail
1 nynd youth who Is down and out and
j wouldn't havo his patrician relatives
know his condition lor the world, to
the follow wltll tho rush act who has

a train In four seconds. The more In-
creillblo the tales the mum quickly
thoy are believed. People acquainted
witli the methods of tiie under-world
fur making n living wouldn't be gulled
by these fellows and that's why we
claim Cranbrook people generally arc
the most Honest—and Innocent—In tlm
world. Them's a .good ninny Crnnbrook stories worth the telling bul
as they would be treading ou somebody's corns, we will relate oue that
happened to a Golden man Inst year,
lie's too far awny to shout us. An
alleged C. P. It. man drifted Into Oolden and hired an automobile at $40,00
per day to take hlm through the Windermere country where he was going
to buy lands In huge trncts. Thn
garage man drove him for two woeks
over lilll and dalu and each day ndded
Hfl.flfl to the amount In his little
memorandum book and told his friends
whom ho met that he would soon have
his cor paid fur. When the man
flashed a roll nr bills anil asked hlm
If he needed iiinney to pay for gasoline, etc.. he snld nn he preferred tn
have It all lu one big cheque. After
travelling In apparently aimless ill-
motions fur two weeks, inking In
Cranbrook and Fnrt Steele, they returned tu Oolden where the plausible
flniineior wltll the 0, P. II. behind hlm
was to meet his wife. The next duy
he hud disappeared, Ho was finally
locatod mid given 1: term behind tho

[ the painted cheek, and two coin|i
Ions. James Connolly nnd John McAuley, were gathered within the
clutches of the law. This task fell to
the lot of Policeman Venus. Nellie
weighs somewhere in tlte neighborhood—roughly — of three hundred
pounds, which she used against Hie
olllcer when he attempted to arrest
her for being drunk and using language unbecoming a holy of hor standing. Just what she told the olliccr of
lhe law we are compelled to omit i
order to get tills Issue Into the tnait, !
It may be said for the bcnellt ofj
Herald readers, however. Unit she can !
swear beautifully, her delivery being
so soft aud sweet.
After resorllug to every means to
persuade Nellie to gn along peaceably
tlie olllcer was compelled Ij us • toreo
ho he "got out and got under" his
load of struggling humanity, Wh whs
game and despite tlie fact tliat Nellie
had a kick like a mule and lauded
several deadly blows, Venus held out
until assistance arrived, when the fut
lady was safely landed at tlie station, Chief Adams assisting Policeman
Venus. Connolly and McAuley were
afterwards gathered in.
At the station Nellie was apparently
looking for revenge, when her cyetf
rested on the typewriter in tbe offlce"
and ln the twinkling of an eye tbe
machine lay a wreck on the lloor.'
Nellie had at 1 eaat succeeded In tills
Une of attack.   .
Thursday morning at 11 o'clock the
trio appeared before   Judge   Arnold.
John McAuley was the Ilrst man up.
John said lie hnd been drunk, coming
to town  with $30 In ids pocket.    He
wanted  to  stuy  around  town  a  day
longer,  as  he  was    nervous.      The
United States officials at the interna-:
tlonal boundary line had turned hlni!
back, not considering him a desirable;
citizen, so he thought lie would hc able j
to make good  in  Cranbrook,    Judge ;
Arnold sent hlm up for thirty days to
get over ills nervousness.    After being  sentenced   McAuley  asked   if  lie
Joined the soldiers anil became a real j
fighting man could lie get off with I
suspended sentence.    He was told he !
could join the soldiers after liis thirty j _,
days was up.
James Connolly, was next brought
up aud placed in the box. James wns
more noisy than his pal and displayed
considerable ability In tlie box. Like
ills friend he also had heen refused admission Into tlie United States. He
bad been in jail before. He also admitted being drunk. The Judge gaije
hlm sixty daya in which to reflect on
liis past misdeeds. He asked that suspended sentence be given. Asked by
tin* Judge what lie knew about suspended sentence. Connolly said he had
been there before.
Nellie Crawford, the fat ledy in !
black, was the next prisoner up. She)
was charged with being drunk and;
disorderly. She pleaded "Not guilty." ;
Chief Adams swore she was raising '
seven kinds of particular mischief and '
held high carnival. He told how siie
put the typewriter on the blink and |
resisted the police. She did not remember doing anything of the kind. |
| She said she hud driven up to Hill j
| 60, to Bee a "girl" she knew up there I
who was holding the trenches. She
thought life up there too slow for her j
so she decided to come to town aud
| huve a decent time. She said the !
United States officials had prevented j
her from crossing the line. She had !
been in "Toronto the Good" and Cobalt, Ontario. Judge Arnold fined her
$50 und costs or six months In jail.

The following from the Rtwelstolj
Mall-Herald will be read with intere
Percy Bent Is u son of Mrs.  15. Bi
this city:
"Leo McKinnon, in a letter recetv
on Thursday by J. McKinnon
knowledges receipt of a periscope
made for him by Percy Bent and forwarded to him at tho front. Tlie periscope, which is collapsible, has been
highly commended by ollicers at the
front aud Leo McKinnon says that
It is the best yet been used. The letter says:
" 'In regard to the periscope it is a
dandy, quite tlie best we have seen
here yet and 1 showed it to one or
two of the officers and tliey were
quite enthusiastic over it. It embodies a very necessary quality, tluit
of being easy to carry around and tliat
by turning it you can use it with
your hack to the parapet is another
very useful quality. Tell Percy from
tne that he ought to write some of tlie
old country firms thut are manufacturing this class of goods for whereas
I do not think It would be possible to
patent the idea It would maybe bo
worth enough to them to cause them
to be generous. Honestly, it i» the
best thing In that line that I havo yet
debt of the true meunlng of friendship.
