A Few Kind Words
G. J. BURV
1     Western General Manager CP.R.
Winnipeg, Man., Mar. 23, '08.
Dear Mr. Simpson:
1 have received and read witb much
interest No. 52 of Vol. Ill of the
Cranbrook "Herald," the tenth anniversary of the inception ol a paper
that bas done a very great deal for
tbe Kootenays.
Like yourself I believe there is a
great future in store for Mast Kootenay, iu fact a country tbat has such
natural resources us' tbe Kootenays
iu the way of timber, minerals and
agricultural laud, cannot .help but go
ahead. Wc recognize our line there
us a most important part of the railway system, and we hope to keep
pace witb the needs of tbe country
and furnish a service that will meet
with the entire approval of the citizens.
Wishing you even greater success in
the next ten years.
1 Yours very trulv,
I G. J, Bury.
!        J. A. MACDONALD, K. C.
Leader of   Opposition in British Columbia
Kossland, B. C, Mar. IH, liM8.
My Dear Mr. Simpson:
I am very sorry I overlooked your
letter of the 15th February. At the
time I received it 1 laid it aside, intending to take advantage of your
kind invitation und prepare a message for your anniversary number,
but in tbe bustle of tbe session it
passed out of my mind. In going
through my correspondence I find
your letter now when too late- I
hope, however, you will forgive me
'and permit me even now to express
my great appreciation of the brightest- weekly in the interior, yes, in tbe
province.' Optimistic it is, and the
people of Cranbrook district have
reason to congratulate themselves
upon the possession ol a newspaper
which will never admit that Cranbiook and Cranbrook district has a
! rival, either in or out ol the province.
Wishing the "Herald" many happy
returns, and that it will never
change its editor.
Believe me, yours very truly,
J. A. Maedmiald.
AT THE THEATRES
T.lv Minstivl Mait.s pluyftl a return engagement on Monday antt
Tuesday. The Maids are great
favorites in Cranbrook and the
people like ll.e clean, bright show
tt.cy put up. Miss Itul.y Lang, Miss
-lack (,'nsiKi, Miss Edith McClaire
and Mnss Sydney Farmer were particularly pleasing ia their various
parts. l.Mtii- "Hig Bill," Halcyon
Martin, is, ol course, a general favorite, the only pity is that sunie day
she will gr.iw up and become a prima
donna. The girls put on a good
show, light and breeuy, but nlisuluie-
ly Ir.f Irom vulgarity. Their sing
.ng is good, their dancing dainty and
their sense o. humor is acute, us
evidenced by their lucal litis. Any
time the Minstroal Maids como to
Cranhrook llu-y will get a good
bouse.
[ The moving pirtures at .tic new
opera house were us usual good tliis
week and the songs were perhaps
even better than usual. Mr. .leaves'
n-ndeni..g ol "And a I.illle t'liihl
Shall Load Them" and "Honey Boy"
1 with his original whistling chorus
brought down the house at every
perlormanco,
I -I. A. lli-in lias relinquished the
management of the Kdison theatre
and (lordoii Marshall is now in
charge. While Mr. lirin has been
here he has made a gft-at manv
Iriends hy uniform courtesy and good
nature. He has made a great sue
cess of the Kdison theatre, which
has lii-eii recognized In* tin* people on
Hi Usiilc, so that Mr. Urin      has
[several very nattering oilers ol post
tlons in larger cities.
Tlie Kdison    theatre pictures wort
good this week.     "Mr. Hurry Up of
New  V.ork" "Indian Customs'" and
"Taming His Wife," being very funny
indeed.     Mrs. Marshall's songs were
as usual     well    received by the
iiiliences.
The drawing for the lady's blaster

Marysville Smelter to

MANAGER FINLAY SAYS   THAT
OPERATIONS WILL COMMENCE!
THE FIRST OF THE MONTH
SI I.I.IVAN MINE WILL ALSO RE-
SUME WITHIN A SHORT
TIME
There waf a rumor on tho street
today that the Marysville smeller
and the Sullivan mine would 'ri-sume
work in a very short time. The
Herald was able to get Mr. Finlay at
Marysville over the telephone. Mr.
Finlay was asked: "Will the smelter
and Sullivan mine resume work within a short time?"
Mr. Finlay replied: "I cannot snv
as to the time that the mine will
resume, but the probabilities are that
the smelter will start up by the first
ot April. One ol the lurnuees are being taken down tor repairs and il the
smelter runs, the mine will have 1
to supply the ore."
Mr. Finlay was not in a position t
give any further information at   this
time.

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
THE HERALD, ONLY $2 A YEAR
IS MARRIAGE A FAILURE
A bachelor, old and cranky.
Was sitting alone in his room;
His toestwith the gout were aching,
And his face was o'erspread    with
gloom.
No little one's shouts disturbed him,
From noises tbe house was free,
In fact, from the attic to the cellar
Was quiet as quiet could be.
No medical aid was lacking;
The servants answered his ring,
Respectfully heard his orders,
And supplied him with everything.
But still titers was something w.iiii-
Something be couldn't command,
The kindly words of comparison,
Tbe touch ol a gentle hand.
And he said as his brow grew darkei
Ami he rang for the hireling nurse,
"Well, marriage may Ik a failure,
But this is a blamed sight worse
HOME INFLUENCES
Rascality and scoundrelly peuple lor
tlie most part come from iniquitous
homes, from undisciplined homes.
Parents harsh aud cruel on the one
Innd, loose in their government—
wickedly loose, in their government-—
are raising up a generation ot vipers.
A home whero scolding ami fretful-
ness are dominated is blood relation
to tlm gallows ami the -ail. Petulance is a serpent that crawls up iu
the family nursery sometimes and
crushes everything. Why, there nre
parents who even make religion disgusting to their children. They
sctild them for not putting in all
their leisure time at ehureh or some
church gathering. They have an exasperating way of doing tbe war hoop
of contention, and from such a place
husband ami son go out to die. Tbe
world grows old, and the stars will
cease to illuminate it, and the waters to refresh it, and the mountains
to guard it and its long story ot sin
and shame and glory and triumph
will soon turn to ashes; but influences which started in the early
home roll on and roll up through
all eternity blooming in all the joy,
waving in all the triumph, or shrinking back into all the darkness-
Father, mother, which way are you
leading your children?
FASHIONABLE MARRIAGE
Truly, marriage, fashionably considered, is as far from marriage humanly or divinely considered as it is
possible for a burlesque to be from
an original. It is the union of two
persons—body, mind and soul—tor
life, "tor better, for worse, for richer, for poorer." In burlesque, it is
an arrangement by which two persons appear to the world as one, sil
together at the table, occupy the
same rooms, have their names on the
same cards, sit in the same pew and
opera box, hut beneath which they
hide a great deal of incongruity, ami
iH'hiud which they lead separate lives.
In tto original it is a connection
which forms the basis of a home; in
the burlesque, it is a connection
which furnishes the pretext for keeping up an establishment. In tlie
original, it suggests quiet, fireside
occupations, domestic tastes, hooks,
talk, reading, cosy rooms, comfortable easy chairs, affectionate confidence between man and woman, plans
for entertainment and improvement,
household economies, all of the varied enjoyments that ean lie held between four walls of brick or wood;
in the burlesque, it suggests bustle,
activity, excitement, engagements to
dinner.' company, parlors where no
one thinks of sitting down for a purpose, drapery, gilding, velvet carpets, mirrors, chandeliers and gilt
ho»4is. absence of confidence, es.
trnngemcttt, divided Interests, a late
breakfast table with one sitting at
it, feminine solitude, and masculine
billiards or something else in tbe
evening, coldness, indifference, extravagance, absence of economy; intrigue, perhaps.
TIME DOES IT
Time has a wonderful power in taking the conceit out of persons. When
a young man first emerges from the
ichool and enters upon the career of
life, it is painfully amusing to witness his sell-sufflciency—he would
have all thc world to understand
that he has "learned out"—that he is
master of all knowledge, ami can unravel nil mysteries. But as he
grows older he grows wiser; he learns
that be knows a great deal less than
be supposed he did, and by the time
he reaches the three score years, he
is prepared to adopt as his own the
sentiment of John   Wesley, who said;
When 1 was*young I was sure of
everything, in a few years, having
been mistaken a thousand times, I
was not half so sure of most things
as 1 wis before. At present I am
hardly sure of anything but what
Clod has revealed to man."
TO YOUNG MEN
If young men desire success in life,
in the purest and truest sense of the
term—cucoeM that culminates in a
noble, stainless life, enduring, exalting and immortalizing even alter
passing over to tbe Unseen—it is certainly very essential that their chai
ac-tris be founded unwavering upon
the broad and enduring principles of
religion. An unbeliever may become a great man, without doubt,
if he has the energy, ambition and
talent; but an Intellect ol thc highest
order must he based upon Christianity. There exists in tne present age
so many temptations to lead the
young, the pleasurHoving and
thoughtless astray, and such an utter disregard of honesty, virtue and
truth among many of our leading
men, that a wide field of usefulness
is open to tiie honest and upright in
heart. Why should not you, young
men, just stepping upun the arena of
life, bring your influence to bear with
strong hand and a clear head in
the correction and pubishment of
many great evils?    Will you do it?
Success in life does not always
mean wealth, fame or position. You
may be poor In all of t-hese but you
ean he rich In mind and character.
The work) within you must be
developed before you can enjoy the
world without you. If you have
wealth put some of it into brain
power and you can never lose it. If
you tire poor you cannot afford to be
poor In both- mind and pocket. You
can have    the    wealth of a trained
mind and a noble character. Rely
un your own efforts. Thousands o\
worthy persons have obtained an
education without the assistance ofi
wealth or friends. You can do it.
Success often depends on the sacrifices made and obstacles overcome.
To succeed in anything requires haul,
honest work. Determine to do thu
best- you can with the faculties (I'd
has given you.

AIN'T IT TIIE TRUTH?
Ask your loeal editor to give Bpoce
Ahoul five years ago,
Went into town one day to spend
Some of bis hard earned ^dough."
"And in a merry jest" and just
To show his printing skill,
He printed his initials on
a brand new d-o-l-l-a-r b-i-l-l.
He spent tbat dollar that same day
Down at the village store.
He thought- 'twas gone fur ever then.
And hed see it no more.
Hut loog before that year rolled by
One day he went to fill
A neighbor's order, and received
That  same d-o-l-l-a-r h-i-l-l.
Once more he spent that dollar hilt
In his own neighborhood,
Where It would do hlmseif and friends
The most amount of good.
Four times in two years it came hack
As some bad pennies will,
And each time he'd go out aud spend
This marked one d-o-l-l-a-r b-i-l-l.
Had be been wise tbat dollar might
He in bis town today.
But just about two years ago
He sent it far away.
The people who received it then
I know have got it still,
For 'twas to a mail order house
He sent his d-o-l-l-a-r b-i-l-l.
No more    will that  marked   dollar
cjune
Into the farmer's bands,
And nevermore will it help pay
The taxes on his land.
He put it where it never can
Its work in life fulfill.
He brought about the living death
Of that one d-o-l-l-a-r b-i-l-l.

BAYNES LAKE COUNTRY
GLORIOUS     HARDEN    SPOT
THAT   HAS  A  GREAT
FUTURE
llavues Lake, B. C, Mar. 'iii, 'wh
o llie Kdiloi ..I lhe Cranbrook Herald:
Penl' Sir: When the above named
beauty spot of llrilisli Columbia llns
become famed for other assets und,
from a worldly point of view, as-<
sets of n more intrinsic merit than
its beauty, it might ho a source    of
Hsfactlon to tho Herald to have
heen ttte lirst lo advertise its claim
to whut- it is and whut Its soil, its
climate and its location destines it
to he. Situated suuth of Klko. only
a few miles from the C. P. It. und
traversed hy lhc Great Northern
railway which, in the very near future will have its northern terminal
at Calgary, the district ol Baynes
wil! have ample transportation, an
unlimited market and exceptionally
favorable railway facilities. Owing
to ils situation und altitude it Is
sheltered from tbe uncomfortable
winds of llie Pass and favored by
mild winters with just enough snow
to make winter operations pleasant
and profitable and serve as adequate
protection to roots and germinating
seeds.
Up to the present the sume pessimism which has characterized the average Hritish Columbian ns to the
wealth of this province from an agricultural standpoint, has had hero
most ardent adherents nnd anyone
who predictcd other than a hurried
timber harvest with u coyote alter-
math would be advised to change his
brand.
However, of late years, from all
parts of the province, comes news ol
repeated experiments enviably sue.
tessful, until nt last the cynic became au enthusiast and the scofter repented of his sneers. The "Old
Man" of the Herald did a lot ot missionary work and was credited with
more time than news and thus Easy
Street lost many would-be residents.
Now, although we haven't an apple
to prove that one ever grew here
[\vo are just north of the big red
apple eountrv) or ever will, we know
tliat the soil is particularly adapted
to apple culture and the climate nil
it should be. Strawberries have
been tried and successfully matured.
All varieties of vegetables have been
grown of a size and quality rarely
seen east of the mountains. Horses
and cuttle ranged the woods all
winter and with no other (ood or
shelter than that provided by nature
are iu good condition.
All tho district required was
water and that is being supplied hv
the Kootenay Land eompany, which
owns ten thousand acres and hns already begun to build a dam and ditch
to irrigate their holdings. Although
their land bas not yet been put on
tho market and may not he until Uie
water system is completed and until
they can prove hv facts that their
land is all Uiey will claim it to be,
nevertheless, a couple of hundred
acres have been divided into five acre
lots at a value of one hundred dollars au acre, spread over a period of
tour years, without interest and open
at that figure lor the present to
those who cure to take thc plunge
with them into what is a hundred to
one shot, will be a lucky investment.
Over twenty lots or one hundred
acres have btvn sold, not in Toronto
nor yet in Spokane, but mostly locally, to persons who have been here lor
several seasons und who never play
other than a safe game. Sam Morrow, utter spending several years in
the Okauagan and not getting a slice
of it. bad ten neres here almost he-
fore the despatch was received that a
limited area wns open to purchasers.
Peter Hacks hurried off heloro daybreak to in'l first choice, but when
he got there Sam was a bloated
landlord and was putting the finishing
paths to his third apple tree. Neil
McCrauk delayed to quarrel with the
cook nnd because he found Sain and
Peter there ahead of him lost his
lemper and before he found it
Messrs. Stevenson and Tanner had
registered and Sam had tallied three
moro apple frees.
Messrs. Morrow und Backs have
already placed llieir order for building material wilh the Adolph Lumber company ami will begin work
upon Iheir respective residences and
holdings at once, nnd several ot the
oilier purchasers are figuring like
wise. Several buildings are already
completed.
Space will not permit fu fully meii-
lloll tbe beauties mid natural advant
ages of Baynes as u home. Suffice it
to say  Mint the Koolcnav Hows   on
  side, the    Elk on the'other, and
if fronts ou one of the most beautiful sheets of water in the interior.
In summer the grass is luxuriant and
of tlie richest hue. Wild (lowers f>f
all kinds grow iu profusion, and wild
iheiii.s. strawberries ami other wild
fruits grow in such abundance and ol
ni-lt a quality as makes the success
.1 garden culture a foregone conclusion. This letter Is not written in a
spirit of insincerity, neither is It
writ len hy a paid booster. The
writer has been years la this country
mid blind to the immensity of Its
resources. He would now atone
somewhat for his paganism by trying
to show others the light, and he will
he n mueh disappointed man, it, before ten years have gone by the
passing tourist will fail to look long
and longingly at tlie most plcturcsjj|ie
spot In his praise of its scenic grandeur, its beautiful gardens, Its orchards and Its cosy, thrifty homes,
and lastly jf he will call lb Cranbrook or   Elko    or nny other name
A Resident.
