the talk brought out tho fact that
Creston and its neighborhood,
beautifully situated though it is some
thousand feet or more lower than
Cranbrook, has to be prepared in the
earlier part of the growing season
tor tlie chance ot such visitations,
especially when delicate vegetables
(tomatoes tor example) are
striking root. They will, of
course, disappear when more
of thc land is broken up and being
exposed to the sunlight and heat will
absorb sufficient warmth during the
duy to dispell the possibility ot such
occurrences when night comes on,
Tho Creston fruit growers, however,
havo taken a hint from the Cali-
fornians and arc now using crude
petroleum smoke smudges to combat
the possible evil.
These devices are not alone cheap
and easy of operation hut thev arc
proving entirely effective. A short
description of them may not be out
of place and may be of material
benefit to those who wish to avail
of them. It appears that a number of small vessels (old tomato
cans or such like will do it provided
with any kind of a funnel arrangement to hold a piece of rag
hy way of a wick) are filled with
black, crude pel roleum such as is
used tor coarse lubrication. It costs
about $3.00 a barrel. Thc small
vessels are placed about ten yards
apart through the crap that iv- to be
protected. There is provided with
them a special thermometer, which
Is kept in the open air and is iu

bolt placed in your bedroom. Tho
moment the mercury falls to within
a few degrees of freezing point it
closes the circuit and that bell lets
you know in no uncertain way that
"it is time to get up and touch a
match to your smudges. At once
a dense, black smoke arises and you
can go buck to lied again with thc
full assurance that t-he frost will he
very effectually smoked out and your
crop saved. These smudges saved a
million dollars worth of a strawberry crop in California this season.
They have their frosts down in thai
region of all good things, but tho
people deal with' bhem scientifically.
There is no reason whv the Cranbrook people should not do tbe same.

whal this country was like n dozen

mav long continue lo maintain its
natural character, for it Is very
beautiful. Every little glade vou
come  to yon expect   to SCO lbe    deer
territory of powerful rivals in the
Cranhrook wholesale market, under
the trade name of P. Woods &, Company. Competition is good for trade
itself. In this particular case tho
public is finding that it is substantially reducing the debits of the expense account, and consequently is
giving a most practical and active
support to Mr. Woods' enterprise,
lhe business here in Cranbrook can
only be said to be fairly launched
just now, but what it may grow to,
judged by recent progress, is hard
Indeed to say. It may be safely
stated, at any rate, that he is causing a very considcrablt amount of
anxiety to his competitors.
His Cherry creek ranch may, for
descriptive purposes, bo roughly
divided inlo four hundred acres ot
meadow land, fifty acres under grain,
eight hundred acres in pasture. The
grain crop is used entirely for
cattle and horse feed, little or nothing being sold off the land. Fait
wheat does splendidly, running from
twenty-five to thirty bushels to the
acre. About four hundred tons of
hay is put up every year. Owing
to the shelter of the timber around
Cherry creek and the profusion o!
growth under the trees (wild lupin,
mostly) cattle do well in the open
during the most severe winters. Of
course, cattle intended for the market are housed and hand fed. The
total herd, at present, runs to about
three hundred and fifty head, without regarding about sixty well bred
horses—not eayuscs by any means.
The soil appears to be ot culte
amazing fertility. On thc 1st June
last a plot, of -ground near the
dwelling house was broken up tor a
kitchen garden. On the lfrth July,
peas, carrots, cabbage, string beans,
beets, radishes, potatoes, rhubarb and
so on were flourishing in what one
ean only call rank and riotous profusion. This wealth of growth owes
something, certainly, to irrigation,
the water being raised from Cherry
creek by means of a Rife hydraulic
ram, which, with a fall of four and a
half feel lifts forty gallons of water
per minute to a height of sixtv-six
feet. This appears to be an efficient
and excellent implement, requiring no
supervision whatever, being absolute-
tj automatic in ils operation and
working day and night. It makes
the water do ils own hoisting—the
nearest thing to a man lifting himself bv bis own boot straps known
to mechanical science.
The farm offices are all modern,
well-planned and are very large and
any. The barn in quite an immense
affair—bigger than many a church in
these parts. Tho dwelling bouse is
of logs and bas heen apparently added to from time to time. It was
almost startling to find in one wing a
very elegantly equipped drawing
loom with a lirst-class piano and all
lho el cotcras that cultivated taste
could provide. This prepared one for
a dinner table laid with napcry ot
the most delicate kind and silverware in profusion. One's mind could
nol help running back to the lime
when tbe owner first bent bis
shoulder to tho accomplishment of
llie .task he has so splendidly finished. Somehow two pictures came
into thi' mind's eye, one of Then, the
oilier of Now. Here were wealth,
health, happiness, prosperity and al':
of refined    culture,   nil
result is always a partial dampness
of the upper or producing soil.
I Air. Tisdale lias about forty acres
under crop, of which one halt is
grain. He bas ten acres of fall
wheat which is worth a journey to
see. It is as thick as hairs in a
shaving brush with a remarkably fine
Itoad. His potatoes are a magnificently healthy crop and so witli the
rest of his crops.
In his garden, close hy the llOUSQ,
are such flowers as any fancier might
well envy and growing in the open
.air are sweet corn, tomatoes,
squash, pumpkins, musk melons,
water melons, cucumbers and sugar
heels. All this wilhoiil a sign of
artificial Irrigation, At tin* hack
of the house on the bench he has put
in some hundreds of apple, pear,
plum, cherry and other fruit trees.
They are doing well.
He is going in somewhat oxtcn-
extensively for a small variety of
Berkshire hog. The animals are
black and when in prime market
condition would run 110 pounds live
weight. He says they come to hand
quickly and should provide a most
excellent quality of bacon, especially
if corn fed,   as these will he.

Coleman, Aug. 5.—Thc Crows Nest
Pass district of Alberta and British
Columbia is yearly showing itself
as the source of the world's greatest
soft coal supply. Each season sees
om* or more coal veins opened up

a profit, The increasing tonnage of
the railroads entering what is commonly known as "Tlie Crow" amply evidences tho increasing output of
the mines. The C.P.R., the first of

Fort Steele, B. C, Aug. ll.-A
mflagratlon which threatened to

avc the alarm by ringing the fire
bell, which brought the citizens
from their beds with the thought
that lbe Kootenay Central railway
had suddenly come upon them in thc
ight. Smoke or steam was soon
hserved to be coming from the
Kershaw store, across the street, and
from the Geary barn, situate in thc
lane at the back, and danger of ignition from the beat was soon
realized, particularly in the latter
ease, as in tbe event of the barn
catching lire, the adjoining buildings,
" iding the Boyle stables and outhouses and tbe Windsor hotel could
not have escaped destruction, and
ihe damage thereby would have been
considerable. All "the efforts of the
Port Steele fire brigade wore soon
concentrated on these two points,
md. with a pressure of at least five
oounds to the square inch, danger
■rom this direction was soon over-
oine ami damage to property, running into several figures, thereby
It is supposed that someone, more
or less, under tbe influence, creeping into these buildings for a short

Victoria, B. C, Aug. 5.—A sensation was caused at the Victoria
Machinery depot today by thc discovery of an infernal machine in the
tool ' box where the Imilermakers
store their tools. In a yeast 'tin,
powder, rivet-beads, and iron filings
were placed with matches, with the
beads placed so that the slightest
friction would explode thc powder
and scatter the missiles. The bomb
was found by a boilormakcr, who
took off tbe lop to investigate,
and, miraculously, the thing failed to
explode. No trace was found of the
maker, n«r can Mr. C. J. Vonratt,
manager of the Victoria Machinery
depot, the police, or others give
any explanation of the reason for
placing the bomb in tbe tool ehest.
As fur as can be learned there ts
uo trouble among the men employed
in   the shops.
James J. Hill has since reached    tbe  tl

activity In railroad construction to
the mines of the Crows Nest district must increase each year.
For some little time past several
surveying crews have been in the field
about two miles west ot Coleman,
aud rumors have it that the Great
Northern railroad, or some other
American transcontinental railroad is
about to enter the Crows Nest
Puss. Tbe charter now held by
the Canadian Northern railway indicates Ihat Coleman, or some point

Editor Herald:
I do not see the reason why Cranhrook should not have a two or
three mile race on Labor Day or at
the Fall Fair, as all tne other
towns around about, some of them
oven smaller than Cranbrook, have
their five mile races. It is one of
thc best methods of boosting a
place, for by doing so the place
gets advertised, and It brings more
people into the town, who would
not otherwise come. Cranbrook has
a large number of good long distance
runners who would go in for running
if there was any encouragement,
and as Cranbrook also has a good
race track, it would soon be at the
top of long distance runners. It also would be a good thing to give
a small silver cup or something else
for a prize instead of monev, as all
the runners ■ whom I have spoken
to would   rather have it so.

article in your valuable paper—the
Herald—I remain,

The growing interest in the subject of forestry on the prairies is indicated by the fact that tbe Canadian Forestry association will bold
a special meeting to discuss this subject in Regina, Sask., on September
3rd   and tth next.
The subject of tree planting on tbe
prairies and the success that bas
lieen attained up to the present will
be discussed by experts and practical farmers will give their experience as to the value of such plantations for shelter and fuel. The best
means of handling the forest reserves will be another leading topic,
and some well known sportsmen
will discuss the relation of forest reserves and game reserves.
The meeting is being held in Regina
upon tbe invitation of the City
Council and the Board of Trade, and
it is expected that some of the
leading citizens of the west will
be present to welcome the delegates and to take part in the discussions.
The railways have promised a

Cranbrook is the industrial and commercial center of
this District, its chief industries lieing ;—
Railroading. Sash and Door Works.
Lumbering. Mixed Farming.
Mining. Fruit Growing.
Smelting of Minerals.
With the utilization of nearby waterfalls, tor the production of electrical energy for manufacturing purposes, Cranbrook will naturally become a manufacturing center uf groat
importance and the cultivation of tbo surrounding agricultural land will ensure lo its citizens, nt reasonable prices,
those products of farm, orchard and dairy at present being
imported from the States and other outsidepoinls, simply
because wo have not got the people to grow the stuff bore.
In this district wc have eighteen saw mills, employing in
the neighborhood of 125U men.
Ruilroad shops employing men.

payroll $65,000 monthly.
Two sash and door factories and planing mills.

During 11)00 new buildings will bo erected to the value
of $250,000, which will include S-litl.OUO new brick and stone
public scliool, (foundation commenced); a $20,OOU bank building, $10,000 Masonic Temple and many fine residences, besides
extensions to the shops nnd round houses of the Canadian
Paeilie Railway to tho extent ot $100,0011. The City of
Cranbrook contemplates spending $10,000 on street improvements alone.
There are a number of projected lines of railroad, with
Cranbrook as their destination.
The Kootenay Central Railway has a charter tor a railway running up this valley connecting with the main line
of the Canadian Pacific Railway at Golden—which will pass
through an ideal fruit aud mixed farming country, also
abounding in silver-lead and copper mines and large forests
of timber.
The Crawford Bay Railway has a charter for a road to
run up the St. Marys Valley, west to Crawford Bay, which
would give Cranhrook and East Kootenay direct communication with Nelson, with only a very short passage on the
Kootenay Lake, and would open up a rich mining, lumbering
and farming section of thc country.
As a divisional point, Cranbrook is assured indefinitely
of being the headquarters of all railway men working north,
sou tli, east and west.
Tho climate of East Kootenay is, to say tbe least, ideal,
and is recognized by all who come here, cither to stay or
In going through, to be   something unsurpassed in Canada.
We have four distinct seasons.
Spring opens up about the middle of March, with beautiful sunny weather, though there is a cold snap in the air.
The snow loaves tbe open land about lliis time, and hangs
a little longer under thc limber. Ploughing can be commenced about thc beginning ot April, and the growth in the
ground begins about May 1st.    Spring rains aro frequent.
Summer is hot, but there is nearly always a light
breeze, and the heat is not oppressive. The rainfall is
light, about 15 in. to 20 in. on the average all the year
round, including snow fall. June is our wet month, July
August and September, beautiful weather.
Winter commences about the beginning of December, the
(list snow fall coming about the middle of the month;
generally there Is a cold snap belore Christmas, and another
in February, lasting in each case about a week; but though
eohi, the air is dry and no wind. There is good sleighing
all winter, from about December 15th to March 1st. This
district is particularly recommended by the medical profession ns very healthy, particularly lor any disease of a
pulmonary nature.
Most decidedly it has, aud ils own farmers and producers
cannot even supply the local demand.
Imports Into the country may be conservatively estimated ns follows:
Produced here.
Eggs     R,000 cases      300    cases
Cheese   70,0110 pounds   none pounds
Butter  208,000 pounds   4,r»00 pounds
Ham, Bacon, ete.300.00n pounds      200 pounds
Lard  150,000 pounds pi.tinn pounds
Reef     0,000 head     1,500     head
Pork     5,000 bead        800     head
Apples   15,000 boxes       100    boxes
Potatoes      1,500 tons        100      tons*
This district can supply all the above, having everything
necessary to produce them: climate, water, soil, area,
range. It only requires the people to come in and raise
Fruit is largely imported every year from the United
States, as the quantity at present grown in this district is
limited to a dozen or so orchards only, and whilst these
are producing well, it will be some time before those now
being planted will be bearing, Fruits ot all kinds have been
grown here with groat success nnd fruit growing is beyond
thc experimental stage. The East Kootenay market is
growing larger every day, Population is increasing In tbo
city and district, and the farmer and wholesaler have an
additional market to eater to each year. Tbe East Kootenay market extends throughout Alberta and ns far east as
Winnipeg, Man., nnd it will be impossible to ever dream ol
satisfying the vast Piairle Provinces, and the Crows Nest
Pass with any of the commodities which we produce, especially fruit. The enormous coal fields of the Crows Nest
Pass will take oil we can grow and never feel the effects of
It In their market, and ns our production increases this demand will Increase three-told. There is coal enough
there to last for thousands of years, shipping at tbe rate of
50(10 tons per diem, and they have no land capable ot growing any produce, and East Kootenay District being tbo
closest producing country, it must necessarily be able to
quote tbe lowest price and capture the trude.
All ties (or supplying the C.P.R. for the districts ol
Western Manitoba, Saskatchewan Alberta aad Eastern B.C.
ure made in this vicinity, making an earning capacity ol
$500,000 per annum.
The finest strawberries in Western Canada are produced
in uud around Cranbrook. All kinds of fruit can be raised
without the least diillculty. The day will come when the
supply of fruit for tit* Crows Nest Pass Coal Fields and the
great prairie market of the Northwest will depend entirely
on the Kootenay District.
Apple trees were planted in East Kootenay as far as
25 years ago and since then, at different times, other orchards have been plant**, with thc result that we have, all
over East Kootenay, orchards with trees of different ages,
producing magnificent apples, plums, cherries and pears.
They all do well. Small fruits, such as raspberries, currants and gooseberries are grown in abundance.
Apples that have so tar been tried and that have proved
a complete success are :
Wealthy. Yellow Transparent.
Snow. King of Tompkins Co.
Duchess of Oldenburg. Grimes' Golden Pippin.
Rod Astrakan. Mcintosh Red.
Russian Transparent. Jonathan.

Seeding ot spring wheat as well as the sowing ol other
crops depends entirely on the opening ol spring, as it is
earlier some years than others. lt is usually commenced
about the 1st of April and fall wheat about the middle of
August. Kail wheat is grown quite extensively and this ls
looked upon as au ideal fall wheat country, the usual yield
being about 30 bushels to the acre.
The vegetables produced in this district in quality and
quantity aro exceptionally good. Ten tons ot potatoes per
acre is an average crop. Sugar beets have given remarkable results and this could readily be made one ot the
staple industries ot this district. Hay makes a great product, as it fetches so good a price, and a large tonnage is
grown in this district. On account of tlic largo lumbering
operations carried on here, a groat quantity has to be shipped into the country.
This is, besides an excellent stock raising country, there
being so large a free range, supplied with lakes and tine wild
feed. Sheep have been brought in during recent years, and
on account ot thc success met with, there is likely to be a
greater interest taken in the raising ot this stock trom
now on.
East Kootenay may be aptly described as a triangular
valley, witli the International Boundary as its base, aad
bounded thereby on thc South; by thc Alberta boundary oa
tbo East and by the Selkirk Range on the west. It is tbe
lirst fruit bearing section of British Columbia reached after
leaving the beautiful plains of Alberta. The country ii
a park-like wooded country, and generally speaking a buggy
can bo driven through the timber almost anywhere. On
each side of thc valley is a great range ol thc Rocky Mountains, which rise steeply from their base upwards. From
the base tbo laud runs cast and west in level terraces,
dropping by degrees until the level ol tho Kootenay River,
which runs north and south through the center ot the
valley. These terraces constitute the bench lands, and are
inlorcourscd with streams and creeks, upon which beaver
havo worked extensively in thc past, forming rich bay land
of loamy soil in places, which arc now nearly all occupied
as mixed farms, growing hay, tall wheat, fruit, etc. On the
sides of the larger rivers running through this district are
largo areas ot bottom land, clear to a great extent, and
partly covered with a growth ot poplar and willow. These
make rich hay producers and are sub-irrigated Irom the
river seepage. The majority of the land in this district,
however, is the bench land, the best and richest of which is
slightly wooded and now being cleared rapidly all over tin
district. Wherever timber is found, a good sub-soil can be
looked for; tbe soil is a rich loam, the product ot ages of
decaying vegetable matter, and a small percentage of clay.
It is close-grained, yet very loose and loamy when worked;
underlying this soil is a very deep stratum of gravel
cemented together with a glacial moraine. This is impervious to moisture and assists the top soil to retain its
moisture. These bench lands are generally slightly sloping,
making the undcr-droinage conditions all that could bo desired. This land can lie cleared and made ready lor
ploughing at an average cost ot (rom $30.00 to $60.00 per
acre, dependent upon the size and quantity of the stumps.
Thc best crops have been raised from these bench lands, and
only very exceptionally has a year gone by when irrigation
has lieen found necessary. However, there Is plenty ol
water for this process and many irrigation systems aro now
going in.
The wild products of this soil consist ol (our varieties ol
native grasses, namely, wild timothy, red top, bunch grass
and vetch or pea vine. These grasses grow thickly on the
ground and in many places arc more than knee high. They
grow abundantly under tho timber, but it has been proved
that after the timber has becn cut down, the bunch grass
grows up stronger, forcing any weeds or weak timber Brasses
awav, killing them altogether. Wild cherries, strawberries,
sarvisberrios, hucklelierries and raspberries also   t-hrl c on
this soil.

Kor those who imagine it is necessary to dock horses' tails and mutilate their manes in order to bo fashionable, the action of Her Majesty, l-lueen Alexandra, in refusing a
gift of horses thus mutilated, Is commended    for   consideration.
A number of Canadian ladies presented the (-tuecu with a pair ot
beautiful drivers, which, wlmt purchased, boro natural manes uml tails.
They wore put in charge ot a
veterinary surgeon for transmission
to their august recipient. The veterinary, with the ofllciousncss which
characterizes a tew of the profession, 011 his own responsibility docket) tlw tails and cropped the manes
of thc horses. When Queen Alexandra found their condition site refused
to accept thc gift and the horses
were returned to Canada. In the
end thc veterinary was obliged to
replace the horses at his own expense, 1
The suggestion of docking nearly
always proceeds from a veterinary.
It Is a veterinary's business to cut
and blister. He likes to encourage
the cutting. It means money to
him. Docking a horse's tall Is a
surgical operation. Many people
imagine it merely involves the cut-|
ting ot the hair. But that ia not
all. Several joints ot tho tail bone
are removed. The tall has to he
skinned. It ls a horribly cruel and
cowardly operation. The horse Is
strapped and tied so that he cannot move. He Is not given any
anaesthetic. The work of cutting
out the bone and tewing up tbe
wound Is done while the poor animal
is in full possession of his senses.
I lis sulloriugs arc exquisite. Tho
operation is just about thc same
as that of cutting off a man's leg
at the ankle joint without anaesthetics. After the poor animal bus
Invii thus maltreated he must be kept

Sometimes the wound is a long
time healing. In warm weather it
is liable to suppurate. Kilos get
into it, parasites breed in it, and the
only result is to spoil the horse's
appearance. A horse with a docked
tail is a traveling, living illustration of some man's meanness and
Real horse lovers all over the

* BY THE OLD MAN.        g
The man who will set a fire on a
windy day in a big bunch ol brush
so close to town that halt ot the
town is in danger of burning, should
receive the attention of tbe authorl
ties. In fact it seems tbat it fo
had policy to issue permits lor
burning brush this   time ol the year.
The crops on the prairie are looking better than ever and that looks
good for Cranbrook.
The Seattle exposition is proving a
good thing for Western Canada, as
thousands of people are going to thc
exposition and passing through
Western Canada either coming or going, and thus seeing for the first
time the great resources ot the
greatest country on the American
continent. It is to Western Canada
that the eyes of the world are
turned, and the growth the next
few years will surpass the most
vivid imagination ot the most optimistic individual.
It is strange to read ot the various countries of the world preaching peace aud at the same time
bunlen the people to the limit with
taxes to build warships and increase
lbe army expenses.
Canada needs box cars just now
more   than   she does Drcadnaughts.
Oh, yes, there will be an election
this fall. There is no doubt
about that in thc minds of the
people of any party in British Columbia. Well, the sooner that it Is
held and the excitement is over,
lhe better it will he for all of the
Thev are running Sunday street
ears in Calgary. Oood for Calgary.
The       street. car is       the
poor        man's        automobile    and
Sunday is the only day in the week
that the poor man can take out
his family to enjoy the beauties of
nature. Sunday street ears in thu
large cities have done more for religion and morality than any other
one factor.
Karl Grey says that tbe Kootenay Valley is the best camping
ground in alt of Canada. That is
going some, aud yet   it is tlm truth.
The Herald believes in Cranhrook
and Easl Kootenay, llritish Columbia uud Canada. It does all ..
can ior the country and the people
are doing all lliey can for the Herald. Hence the increase iu the business of   the Herald.
When the eily lakes over the
waler works aud starts the improvements contemplated, there will
be au assurance of a sulhcieut water
supply ut all times and tbe necessary pressure to protect thc homes
ol the people and thu business portion of   the town.
lt is uot too late to do something about that curfew law. There
are loo many young boys aud girls
roaming the streets at night in
We have not any money to spare
but we will bet that Cranbrook will
compare favorably iu morality with
any town uf its sixc iu the country.
Every man in Cranbrook should
put his shoulder to the wheel and do
all iu his power to make Cranbrook
a larger and moro prosperous
place. Tbu country is here in East
Kootenay for a city of many thousand people and it is up to the peoplu
of lliis city to bring about such a
result for Cranbrook. At times it
may mean the sacrifice uf a little
time or a few dollars, but the increase in the value of your property
and your increased opportunities for
bettering yuur condition will pay
buck all that yuu are out a thousand fold. You who own property
must not let the burden uf pushing forward the lown rest on the
shoulders ot a few. When there
is a meeting of importance turn uut
attd attend, even it it may inconvenience you at thc time. When
you meet a stranger take a few
minutes to tell him about the rc-
sourccs and prospects of the district, shake hands -with him, endeavor to make him feel at home,
and when he goes away lie will
be a traveling advertisement for
Cranbrook. Don't be selfish and
■say, "Oh, 1 don't feel like going
uut tonight to a meeting. There
will be enough there without me."
That spirit will kill any town in
time. Again, if you are working
for a wage you arc interested in the
luwu thc same as the rest. Oet
ou your boosting clothes and do all
you can. That is what is making
Calgary, Lethbridge, Spokane, Vancouver, Winnipeg and any other town
in the country today. The town
wilh Tlte resources and the boosters
arc the towns that will go ahead,
and the towns populated by the
dead ones are the towns that will
be wiped oil the face of the map in
time.    Be  a   booster.
There is a probability that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will pass through
Cranbrook during the next tew
weeks. It this is so it is up to
the people ot this city to do something in his honor. When Mr. Borden was here there was no question of politics, but on the con-
trat- the majority were anxious to
give him a royal welcome. Let us
get together and show that we are
the right kind of people.

Middletown, 'N. Y,, Aug. 11.—A
loss estimated at a million dollars
was caused by a lire that swept
thirty-six buildings from tlie main
street uf the summer resort town
of Mouticello last night. The buildings burned included hotels, stores
and residences. Thc lire was under
control this afternoon after dynamite was used.
Three hotels, filled with summer
guests, mainly from New York eily,
were destroyed. They were the
Rowell House, the largest hotel in
lhe country; the Palatine hotel and
thc Bolsium house. All tlte guests
escaped with most of their personal
effects. Thc Mouticello house was
uol burned.
The Union National bank, both
newspaper offices, and every store nut
one in the town   were destroyed.
Early this morning, when it was
seen tbat the business section was
doomed, the firemen began to
dynamite lo blow up the buildings
by which the lire was likely lo
spread lu thc residential district
By this means all the residences
except two of the better class ol
houses   were saved.
Mouticello Is a village ot less than
two thousand residents, but during
the summer, when tlrausands rush to
this place as a summer resort, all
the boarding houses arc filled to
overflowing. When the fire began in
tho electric station in the rear of the
Palatine hotel, on Main street, a high
wind fanned the flames and the
three Mouticello fire companies were
unable to check the progress. Assistance was summoned Irom Port
Jervis and Liberty, and thc summer
boarders, not only, ot Mouticello, but
from nearby villages In all directions, rushed to the help of the
firemen and formed a volunteer lire
department. It was 2 a.m. when
the tire had raged lor six hours,

.business section was abandoned, and

The sight ot a baby leopard trying
to attack an antelope ten times Its
size added greatly to the gaiety of
tlie Zoological Gardens, in London,
recently. The leopard was a Iresh
arrival, but such a baby that he was
allowed to run about the offices. A
prettily marked cub, tbe size ot a
small terrier, the leopard wandered
about the office and started to investigate umbrellas and boots. Opposite the offices lives one ot the
Zoo's bad characters—a goral antelope, strong, fierce, and at war with
the world. The baby, wbo had been
gambolling and straining at the chain
like a playful puppy suddenly scented
the antelope. Down he crouched
and flattened himself against thc
gravel, waving his tail. Bars tor
ward and muscles tense, he watched
thc bars until thc antelope reared up
and showed himself above tho wooded partition. Then the cub sprang
for the throat, only to be checked
ilt midair by the chain. With baby
roars and in a tren/.y ot juvenile
rage, tho young leopard leaped
again and again. Ho was Anally

■ The tune to have the brightest
lamps lit,  the hottest supper ready,
I tn wear the gayest dresses and hunt
up the funniest stories In one's memory, is the   cold, rainy night, when

I when thc home-coming husband,

■ The father who is "chummy" with
lus boy, gets down to that eager,
Inquiring, restless little soul and explains und encourages, docs not need
to nn a birch gad m order to raaln-
ILain discipline; and the mother who
sympathizes, cuddles and plays with
her children can keep hei slippers on
her feet and hei hair-brush on tho
dressing table. Children need lovo
aud sympathy as much as (lowers
need an aud sunshine.
Aboul the worst thing patents can
do Is tu discuss tbe lailiugs of
children before Litem, 'the next
worst thing is tor parents to attempt to ptiins,i thu child ami the
olbei parent protest against it.
ciiiiei action uni damage tin* respect
ul tin' child or une or the other
ni' its parents, and ii there is une
thing more than another that parents want lo preserve, it is their
dignity before their children. A
child who gets thc idea that one
parent is at variance with the other
on the question of discipline will
make both unhappy and render itself detidedly objectionable by playing oii mu' parent against the other.
II you want to have auy harmony
iu the family, get together on the
question of disciplining the children—
at least in their presence-—and if
you want to quarrel on methods, do
it iu thu privacy of vour own apartments, where    you    can have it uut
, without lowering yourselves in    the
eyes of   the children.
It may be thought that when the
child has grown to manhood or womanhood, as tiie case may be, that
the parents' duty ceases, and that
henceforth he can "paddle his own
canoe" aud no longer occupy their
anxious minds. But once a parent
is to be always a parent. No right-
minded father or mother can ever
cease to lie deeply interested in and
desirious for the best welfare ot the
child they nursed in infancy, and
watched aud guarded tenderly
through childhood's wayward years;
and so as the years pass by ' their
eyes are still directed to the object
of their affection, With the hope and
prayer that he may bo spared trouble
and disgrace, aud that prosperity aud
happiness may be his portion in life.
This is the living wish; but the
Ilcsh is weak; the world has snares
and allurements, and too often in
his ambition for his brilliant boy,
the father forgets the wisdom the
years should have rooted in him, and
withholds much needed advice from
the beloved one, and even helps him
into entanglements and debt that
will sooner or later be his ruin, If
we could onlv get away Irom unholy ambition, "by that sin fell the
angels," and not only advise better
things, but act as though we believed
ihiin. many a sun would bu kept in
the "straight and narrow way," nnd
be found traveling that slow and sure
road that leads to honor and prefer-;
ment among good people. Were It
not for tins ambition for our
children, and Indiscreet trust in their
abilities, many a parent would be
saved Irom pinching poverty and a
broken heart in age because some
son has swept away his property
and become a dishonored and untrustworthy man.

t it tawa, Aug. 8.—There were thirty
million less cigarettes smoked in
Canada last year than the year
before. The decline is held to bo
entirely among boys of 16 years or
under. And to be entirely due to
the restrictive legislation put through
parliament by the government during the session of PHIS. It is believed that the law actually prevented the smoking ot from forty to
fifty million cigarettes by the boys
of thc country ns the consumption
was increasing and it it had not
been for the law there would have
been an increase of from ten to twenty million instead of a decrease of
thirty millions. This is a fair assumption as the consumption was
increasing each year and during six
years prior to pifls the increase
amounted to over 75,000,000.

and ".Johnnie" Mack, with a dirigible balloon. Both men have won
prizes In the east, and Curzon has

mi a voyage from Hucha to
Savannah, U.S.A., laden with sulphur
pyrites, and while oil the Portugese
coast lire was discovered among the
cargo. Then ensued a fierce unlit
with the fiames. So bad were the
fumes of the sulphur that it was
only possible tor thu crew to work
in relays, and at intervals the bauds
hail to rush on deck [or fresh air,
being so affected that they reeled and
staggered as it intoxicated, However, all efforts to subdue tbu lire
were futile, and soon thc heat on
board became insufferable. Then tbe
ship commenced to buckle, tho woodwork caught lire, and (lames shot up
to a great height. Driven from
their posts, the crew took to their
two [mats. Describing what happened afterwards, one ollicer said lie
saw the decks of the vessel twist,
the bolts and rivets dropped out of
their places into the sea. As the
Lord Londonderry rolled, and thu
waves dashed up against her, the
water hissed as ,t came in contact
with her red-hot sides. Finally,
great runt grew amidships, caused
by the melting of thc ironwork,
and the steamer broke iu halves, tin
reaching the Portugese coast, officers
and men went on to Lisbon,
thence traveling to Liverpool
A boy's bravery iu endeavoring to
rescue another boy from a pond resulted in a distressing drowning
tragedy in Barrow, the other day.
A boy named Harrison bad been
bathing in the pond, and was redressing when he saw a younger
boy adrifl upon a log of timber,
lie immediately swam into the
waler, and held the lad up until
another boy came to his assistance.
Harrison appears lo have exhausted
himself, for immediately he was relieved ot the younger hoy's weight
be sunk. The body was recovered
by grappling.
An amazingly daring jewel robbery,
was perpetuated in tlic Cate Moiiicu,
Piccadilly, London, recently. An
Austrian gentleman named Clold-
sinidt, a representative of a Par
firm of jewel merchants, together
with his nephew, lunched at the
cafe, subsequently proceeding to the
lavatory, where Mr. OoldsmTdt placed a small black leather case which
hu was carrying on the marble slab
while he washed. The case contained ten pearl necklaces, a large quantity ot louse pearls, and a number ot
diamond rings, thc whole being
valued at about £100,000. As soon
as Mr. Goldsmidt's hands were iu
the water the case was snapped up
by a man who had apparently been
going out. Both Mr. Goldsmidt
and thu lavatory attendant dashed
after the thief, but a confederate interposed in the passage, threw himself on the ground and tripped them
up. He regained his feet with great
agility and followed the thief. The
pair slipped out through the buffet,
and gaining the street, disappeared.
Large crowds (locked to the pretty
-.'oinisli village ot Tregehni;, recent*,,
to witness the wedding of Antonio
Metessa and Rosina Harper, the sequel to a picture post card romance.
Hundreds of people greeted the principal figures in the romance as they
entered the village chapel, Rosina
leaning on the arm ot her father, and
Antonio, accompanied by a friend who
had come from British Columbia to
act as best man. The pair were the
objects ol excited curiosity as they
went through the ceremony. The excitement was owing to the fact that
lhu marriage has heen brought about
by a picture post card seen by
young miner in the mining fields of
British Columbia. At a summer festival in lliu village last year a traveling photographer snapshotted a
;roup and sold prints as picture post
cards. A villager, Mrs. Phillips,
sent one to her son, a miner in British Columbia, who showed it to comrades in camp. A young miner
named Antonio Metessa, whose father is Italian and mother English,
was so fascinated by Miss Harper's
appearance that he prevailed upon
Phillips to let him enclose a note
to her in his next letter home. Correspondence passed between the two,
and finally Metassa turned his back
upon the goldfields of British Columbia, and set out on a 8,000 miles
journey to Cornwall, where the
lovers met, and the wedding was
A most remarkable escape from
the wrecked trench at Newport Docks
was that of a man known as "Pin-
wire," who, after being missing for
some time was recently discovered.
