(By Maxwell Smith.)
Fruit growing in British Columbia,
like Uio climatic and .soil conditions
in its various disirieis, is so diversion) in character ami ot .such importance Uiat it is hardly possible lo
do thc industry anything like justice
in Uk -spaa- at our command, and
when the reader has perused Ibis
Jutich' to the enil, be must bear iu
mind Uiat there still remains much
to he said on the subject. A historical sketch would he ol Interest
to many, hul the wants ot Intending
settlers or Investors may tic better
served by a general outline o( i
present conditions and prospects of
the industry.
Although it is only sixteen years
since the lirst lull carload of "fruit
was shipped out ot Hritish Columbia,
progress hns been fairly rapid and
people ure now beginning lo realize
something of its possibilities us a
Iruit growing province. In the season ot 1001, thc fruit crop ot British
Columbia wns valued at JRliOll.llllI) and
the area under cultivation estimated
ftt 14,000 acres.
In 1905 the area under fruit had
been ncreased to 20,000 acres, and
the total revenue derived therefrom
was nearly one million dollars. In
the same year something like $500,tlu
was expended in tbe purchase aud improvement of fruit lands und the
average price received tor grade No.

early varieties stalled out at $1

February and Mareh as high as

No. 1 in carload lots. The average
price of other fruits for the season ot
1905 were: Pears, $1.38 per 40 lli.

i Outside of thc quantities consumed
In our own cities the chief market
{or British Columbia fruit is tlie
prairie provinces; a market which will
always demand the best that the
Iruit grower can produce and in cv
increasing quantities, so that British
Columbia need have no tear, no matter, how rapidly the industry develops, ot an over-production ot good..
clean    commercial   varieties.        The
{' irovince is most favorably situated,
n being contiguous to the great
plains of the middle west, where
Iruit growing on a commercial basis
is not likely ever to be a success.
That territory is sure to increase
rapidly in population and tlie consumption of fruit will be enormous.
lt Is a curious fact that thc average
lamily on the prairies consumes more
fruit than do those of British Columbia] and it is quite natural, also, to
expect that gs the farmers of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba
succeed, within a comparativclv few
years, in laying bv sufficient to keep
them in comfort for the rest tit their
lives, they should look lo British Columbia, with its congenial climate,
magnificent scenery and tremendous,
uneiplorcd nnd undeveloped natural
resources, as a place in which to
spend tlieir declining years.
There js little need for this province to spend money in trying to induce immigrants from other countries
to cfcnie here and settle. The best
immigration work that British Columbia cau do is to develop the trull
growing industry and to send lnrge
quantities of first-class fruit properly
grown, harvested, packed and shipped
into the great grain country east of
thc Rocky Mountains, ihis will
judiciously advertise the province and
bring our' own people here as soon ns
they become tired ot the more rigorous climate of the prairies.
Thc topography of tho country
from the standpoint of the fruit
grower may be belter understood liy a
reference lo the map. The gcolop
eal formations and climatic conditions render it necessary to divide
the fruit growing area ot the province Into nine genernl divisions.
No. I might be culled the smith-
western coast district, which includes
thc • southern halt of Vancouver Is
land, adjacent Islands, and what is
usually called the lower mainland.
Here thc production ot small fruits
mav be said to be move successful,
and consequent Iv more profitable,
lhan that of the tree fruits. Nevertheless, there are a number of very
excellent varieties ot apples, peats,
plums, prunes and cherries which
grow to perfection In this district,
besides many different varieties of
nuts, ami, In especially favored spots,
peaches, grapes, nectarines, apricots
amt other tender fruits.
In moot parts of this district tbe
mild character ol the climate and the
excessive moisture during the winter
season arc very favorable to the. development of fungous diseases, and it
ll therefore necessary to practice
persistent and systematic spraying of
the orchards, clean cultivation or the
soil, and a thorough system of tinder-
drainage in order to get the most
profitable rcsulls.
Dislriet No. 2 includes the valleys
ol thc Upper Kraser, as tar north as
the fifty-second parallel, the main
Thompson, thc Nicola and Bonaparte
rivers. Here there arc practically
none ot the above named diiliculties
to contend with, but thc question of
water to Irrigate the lands is one requiring, serious consideration, as
without an abundant supply of water
in ths 1'dry belt" it is impossible to
be sure of a crop every year. The
prospective fruit grower, however,
does not have to contend with the
heavy forests along tliese rivers that
fca-M) tn he encountered on the coast.
14x0 fruits grown are ot the very
highest-quality ami include all the
varieties mentioned In connection
wH-h district No. 1. One of the
largest, vineyards of the provinee is
located near the junction of thc
Fraser and Thompson rivers.
District No. 3 may 1* briefly described as the valleys ol the Himilka-
tmeo aad its tributaries, portion* of
which nre perhaps tlw most tropical
of any purl of British Columbia, and
most favorable locations for the cultivation of grapes, pencbes and other
delicate fruits, wherever sufficient
water for irrigation purposes is
No. t includes the districts surrounding Adams, Shuswap ami Mabel
Lakes and the valley of the Spallum-
eheen river, Here the natural rainfall is 9ll flic lc lit and splendid apples,
pears, plums and cherries nre successfully grown. The climatic conditions iu this dislriel resemble very
much those of Southern Ontario,
iiii'.l a fruit grower with fixed idea;
liinn (he latter province might be
more successful Iu this district than
ne woulil on irrigated lauds. The
limber is, generally speaking, light
and llie land rich.

cessluliy grown by the irrigation
system. improved mouern mcilious
aie in general use by the Iruit growers in uus dislriet and the industry
is perhaps more advanced than in
any oilier pari of British Columbia.
ito. li is usually called the Boundary or Kettle Kiver country, and although the smallest of all the districts named, the quality of the land
is excellent and the climatic conditions all that could be desired. Where
a sufficient water supply is obtainable, there is no trouble in producing
Iruit of tlie highest quality.
No. 7 is West Kootenay, an enormous fruit growing district, wheie
only a Utile progress has been made
on the southern portion, but sufficient to indicate the possibilities and
the superior quality of the fruit
which may be raised along those
,akes and streams. The neighborhood of Nelson and Kaslo bas accomplished wonders in the past tew
years, but tbe shores of the Arrow
lakes are practically untouched by
the hand of the fruit grower, and tbe
valley of the Columbia, from the Big
Bend south to Arrowhead, affords opportunities little dreamed ot by many
of those in search ot fruit lands. In
the greater part of this district, irrigation is only necessary in the
very dry seasons.
District No. 8 is the country
known as Kast Kootenay and is
separated from No. 7 by a range ot
mountains. It is traversed by the
Upper Kootenay river from the fifty-
first degree of north latitude south-
I'Wnrd to the international boundary,
and from Columbia and Windermere
lakes northward up the I'pper Columbia river, to thc Big Bend, tn the
southern portion ot this district
there arc immense stretches of thinly-
wbodeil lauds suitable for fruit-growing purposes, nnd the valley ot tht
Upper Columhia has many choice locations for the enterprising Iruit
irowcr. The lack ot transportation
facilities is a great hindrance tc
Mie development of the fruit lands ot
lb" Uppor Columbia.
District No. !) comprises tlw vast
coast region, including tlw Queen
Charlotte Islands, and the northern
halt ot Vancouver Island, (nun Jer-
vis Inlet to Portland Canal. There
is little known of its capabilities as
yet, but undoubtedly it has a few
surprises in store tor the future.
Though in small quantities as yet.
apples, pearlies and grapes have been
successfully grown on thc Skeena
river. The lirst apple trees were
planted at llu/leton in the spring of
1901 anil fruited in the fall ot 190-1.
For a considerable distance inland
from the west coast, there are numerous valleys and plateaus, which arc
well adapUd to growing many of the
hardier varieties, though fewer iu
number than those suitable for the
lirst named dislriet.
Notwithstanding the conditions and
adaptabilities which may be in a
general way characteristic ot the
uu'gc districts above mentioned, there
ate always peculiarities of soil and
'liinate, soil moisture, atmospheric
currents, etc., which must be taken
into consideration, and intelligently
itili/ed by Uw individual settler
when choosing varieties to plant or
itcclding on mei bods of cultivation.
That the supply of water from
mountain streams fur irrigation purposes is limited, should always lie
lioine iu mind aud in those portions
I the province where irrigation is
cci'KSiiry, lbe prospective settler or
tivcstor should he exceedingly careful Unit n proper supply of water is
obtained, whether it is needed every
rear or not.
1'ltprO arc immense fertile tablc-
iuuus along the Thompson, Columbia,
rtoiiienay and Similkamecn rivers
and the Kamloops, Okanagan, Upper
and Lower Arrow and Kootena)
lakes, which cau not be irrigulcti
from the available mountain streams,
bin it may safely be predicted that
some day in the not distant future,
genius will arise who will invent a
comparatively cheap method oi
pumping the water from these large
reservoirs up to the higher levels,
and wbo then will venture to estimate the quantity of rare and lus-
ious fruit which this province may
tie capable ot producing, or the gratitude that tuture generations will
lavish on the memory of the man
who shall make the cultivation of
these beautiful plateaus possible.
Then will the glittering Okanagan
lake become a magnificent water
highway, through the midst of densely populated stretches or orchard
lands. On cither shore will be one
continuous Une of superb villa homes,
and all up and down those scenic galleries of luxurious gardens will dwell
the kings and queens ot husbandry in
the happy performance ol the first
duties allotted to mankind.
By establishing high standards and
the practice of high ideals, both In
the quality of their products and
husiness methods the fruit growers ot
British Columbia should have a
large share In huilding up the commercial character of the province
which, like the golden beams ol the
summer twilight, shall shed its benign Influence eastward over the
great Dominion ol

Ex-President V. II. Sherman is ly
ing at ilie hospital here very sic*
and may Dot live the week out, according to lhe latest news trom the
hospital this morning. .Mr. Sherman
came here to undergo a dieting at the
hospital with lhe hope that he might
recover sufficiently lo travel east to
a specialist, but since coming here he
bas been gradually sinking lower and
lower, and on Thursday he got so
uad that Mrs. Sherman was telegraphed for, and she arrived yesterday morning, since then Mr. Slier-
man has been sinking and vesterdav
the children were scut lor and tbey
are expected to arrive tonight. Ii
was thought he would not hold out
yesterday but he has made a hard
light. The doctors, however, do not
hold out any hope ot his recovery,
and fear that his end is only n question of hours. This is, indeed, verv
sad news lo all, as Mr, Sherman was
au exceptionally line man and only in
the prime ot life. The circumstances
are very painful, owing to the tact
that Mr. Sherman has not been able
tu earn anything for months, as he
has been sick. Tbe family have no
other source ot income, as their
homestead is as yet an unproductive
one, and added to' this the recent tire
on the prairie burned up all their implements, feed, etc., and has lett them
stranded, A subscription is being
taken up through the district, and
all should put in their mite
as it is for a worthy cause. Ml,
Sherman, when president, did more
for the enti.se of the miners in thc
district and in tad the workingmen
generally, than any man in tlw country, and now that he has fought the
good fight, and is heing watted away
to the last goal, it behoves all to
subscribe towards the support of bis
large family. We trust that Mr.
Sherman mav still survive and be a
factor in behalf of the miners and

were at the bedside at the last moment.
Mr. Sherman leaves a large family,
including a blind boy, in straightened
circumstances, aud his death is deeply regretted by a large circle of
friends, which reaches tar beyond the

he was so long the leader.

To the Craubrook Herald:
A congress of dry farmers was re-
eently held in Cheyenne, ttyo., to
which delegates from all over the
Stales came. 'The sessions were
lilled with the experiences ot practical farmers, agricultural experts aud
Investigators, who covered ihe whole
tield ol farm work in sections where
every drop uf moisture has to be conserved for use of the crops sown.
There are some four hundred million
ucres uf semi-arid land in the Slates,
and on lbe Canadian side of thc line
we have an area sufficient to make
the siudv uf diy farming one of the
hist of Importance to the country.
Div farming as specially practiced
is not an experiment, as according to
fads recently gathered by investigators, the Chinese used similar methods three thousand years ago tor the
samo purpose, and tn California u
has beeu applied for thirty years, and
in Utah tor twenty, ami at present
over fifteen hundred larmers arc practising it within a radius of forty
miles of Cheyenne with marked success. Ai the International litigation Congress at Atbuquerquct, New
Mexico, dry farm produce won tbe
highest awards ovet those raised by
Onlv reccntlv, however, has an el-
fort been made to gather all available Information on methods pi;
ed, ami to crvslali/e tbem Into
scientific rules' tor lbe guidance ot
thc inexperienced.
ln the following I will endeavor to
give some ol the conclusions iu a
condensed form and also some of the
reasons tur the methods advised and
practiced witb the results to be expected, along with other Information
on lhe subject, as gathered from thc
study nf actual results as given by
those interested therein, and observations of actual practice and such deductions as seem applicable to those
acres of Easi Kootenay, which are
so situated as to be impossible nt
irrigation or where too costly f"i
single banded ranchers to install,
and of which it is needless to tell
anyone resident in the district, there
is chough to make tbe subject of
prime importance to the district.
Mueh uf this land bus been considered
worthless in time past, but wc have
only tn pnint to thc outshining success of E. C. Smith, on St. Mary's
prairie, as evidence that under proper methods profitable crops enn be
produced in the dislriet without applied water.
One of thc fundamental statements
made at the start is that laml will,
an annual rainfall of fourteen inches
witb half of it iu April-July, gives
gooij results if properly handled und
lhat having less than twelve annually and seven in growing season, oilers
a less promising outlook. In this
range il will be seen is a large part
of East. Kootenay distiict,
Dry land farming as actually practiced means farming iu the semi-arid
regions by the proper conservation
of a limited precipitation iu order to
secure the maximum of crop.
11 may lie set down as an axiom
that the desirability of an arid or
semi-arid country us u human habitation is contingent on its water
supply. Urban life demands the provision of abundant and good water.
'The isolated settler seess a stream
or spring beside which to make his
bome. Even the wayfarer linds a
supply of water before making bis
camp for a single night.
The farmer must provide waler for
bis family and stock and if there is
neither spring nor stream, and a
well fails to afford this necessity,
permanent habitation is impossible,
although at present, laud is being
tilled successfully in the arid belt,
where nothing but camps, for time
enough to seed and harvest, are possible, and the water has lo he hauled, in some cases for miles, for tm
men, teams and engines doing the
worK. Besides the necessity ol water for living beings, it is equally
necessary for all inanimate grow thu
and iu such immense quantities us to
scorn incredible to one who has given
the matter little thought, the percentage of aqueous matter lu the live
weight of farm animals being from
lifty to seventy and in farm crops, iu
fresh state, from seventy-live to ninety, ami the observations of science
have found that our hundred and
fifty tons of water were consumed iu
tlio growth nt one ton of wheat, dry
matter, and that the tissues ot the
plants in one acre ot oats alone
transpired about onu hundred tons ot
It is considered probable that ou
tlie average not less than three
hundred tons of water are used iu
producing a ton of dry matter in
(arm crops, so that when one looks
ut these figures be sees tlte immense
importance of utili/iiig every particle ol rainfall ami keeping down
loss hy evaporation if he expects profitable crops under sem -arid conditions.
Water as distributed in soils consists of three kinds, of which the only
one directly useful to plants is ca
lary water, which Prof. King defines
as "that water which adheres to the
surfaces of soil ami grains and to
plant roots in films thick enough to
allow surface tension to move it
Irom place to place."
This waler surrounds each grain of
soil, keeps each particle moist and
moves toward the point where its
amount is least, generally moving upwards to replace that lost by evaporation.
It is thc capacity of soil to hold
capillary waler that is nt real agricultural significance, and this capacity is in inverse ratio to the size
of "the grains of soil i.e., the coarse
grains of sandy soils contain very
small amounts in suspension. Soils
well supplied with humus have a
large capacity for retaining moisture
and on this rests the importance of
filling a mil with humus in districts
such as this, where there is a notabl
lack of this constituent.
Movements of water . are two:
First a downward one occasioned hy
tlte force ot gravity, tends to rid the
soil of   superfluous    water by drain-
hanging over lhe side. By this
force water is constantly being drawn
upwards in the soil, tu replace that
given oh by evaporation.
Besides being iu itself plant food,
water is also necessary iu the solution ot mineral elements of tho soil,
so necessary to plant life, as it is
only in water solution plants are
able to absorb mineral salts, and
likewise the action of bacteria or
fermentation in the soil, such as tne
formation at nitrates, is suspended it
there is insufficient moisture.
Less than fifteen per cent of moisture in average soils will pinch the
crop and growth commonly ceases at
below eight per cent. On tlie otlier
hand vegetation languishes and crops
do not thrive when the soil contains
more than Irom thirty-five to lifty
per cent of water, according to the
kind of soil, so that about twenty to
twenty-live per cent is the most favorable proposition ot soil moisture
for ordinary crops. This means ten
or twelve inches of water in the top
tour foot of soil and to maintain
this happy medium is thc farmer's
problem. As we arc not troubled
with surplus moisture, we have only
one side of the problem to deal with,
and the only means available to tbe
dry tanner is conservation by a
proper system of tillage.

The recent Trades and Labn Congress meeting at Quebec took a lively interest in the eight-hour bill before the House at Ottawa.
Tbe Congress hus received into affiliation the Soeial and Moral Reform
association in a vigorous •ampatgn
against the white slave traffic, race
track bookie and bucket-shop gambling and other evils. Strong resolutions against lite white slave
and the gambling wrongs were introduced by the Winnipeg delegation.
The gambling evil has been severely
denounced by a number of prominent
bankers, railway men and educationalists, as well as by the Presbyterian
ami Methodist bodies in recent interviews and councils. "There cun tic
no doubt," said General Manager
Strathy, of Uie Trader's Bank, "that
betting has a most demoralizing effect, and I think the more restrictions that hedge it around the better
for the community." The belting
evil, declared President Falconer of
the University of Toronto, "is such
an insidious vice that whatever can
lie done to check it and root it* out
.vould certainly have my approval."
" Nothing should be neglected to preserve our young men from this

morals have been put out by ' a
sweeping vote of tlie elect-orate. Following the wholesale prosecutions of
Sunday moving picture show men, a
vigorous and successful movement,
headed by Bishop Brucbesi, the
Lord's Day Alliance and Uie Montreal police committee, is now under
way to close down all unnecessarv
Sunday traffic. Sunday trading
must stop, and the salesmen are to
lmve their rightful rest. It ls noted
that the immigrants ot foreign extraction, not the natives, are the
chief offenders in this brazen defiance
of t'he law. Law-abiding dealers are
awakening to thc unfair competition
against which they have had to contend, as well as to the real need of a
restful, quiet Sunday rest day.

then except that the smoke and damp
was chasing us back, which ever way
we went. We struggled on though.
Alter a while, being almost lost,
iiuully we sat down to ilgure what
cuiild be done. Wc were tired and
iH-aten hack. The fire damp came
so thick that the air could not he

from it. Then we decided to remain
lo wait lor reliel or lor death, Wc
hud not waited long when we heard a
shout, and Alex. Shaw, tho ton-man,
and Davison, who lost his son in the
mine, came. When we heard their
shouts instructing us, wc waited at
lbe slope head, but the live never
eame out, and 1 am waiting still for

long while now, though.
"All day long rescuers have [ought

that any ol the thirty-two men
Known to be in the mine had

Dick with Manager Graham, ol thc
Western Fuel company, came trom
Nanaimo ami with Superintendent
Little and Manager Bricden they led
parlies ol workers. Alex. Shaw, the

two eases where the roofing has fal-

the miners-are that the explosion
wus due to a blown up shot. They
cun give no otlier reason and ollicials
say that thev arc certainly at a loss
to account tor it. Arthur Glenn, a
Brattice man, was hetween No. 21

ran for the slope. When he readied

Tlie people uf Cranhrook have reason to be thankful tu the present
mayor and City Council for lhe good
woiit that has "been done during the
past season iu llie way uf improving
tbe cily. .Sidewalks have been built,
stieets have been graded, rocKs auu
stumps have lieen removed ami many
otlier Improvements lune been made.
Miaiigers coming to lown have commented upon the good work being
none ami have said thai CranbrooK
was one ul the most progressive
towns iu Hritish Columbia. It is
impossible to make a town unless yuu
are willing to spend the money. Take
tin- business men uf Cranbrook today,
With llie exception ol twu ur three
Uiey were virtually without a dollar
ten or eleven years ago. In other
words they started in business in
Cranbrook on a shoe string, as the
phrase is known in the west today.
Look al them now. There is nut a
more prosperous or a mure wealthy
class of business men iu Western Canada than those in Cranhrook today.
They bad to go In debt to secure
prosperity. All of us had to do
tliat. Why then should not a city go
after prosperity by following the
same policy. A few years ago the
people ol 'Lethbridge elected William
Henderson, proprietor of lbe Lethbridge butel, mayor of the cily, aud
he proceeded at once to borrow
money, build cement sidewalks and
otherwise Improve that tuwn. The
people kicked, as people will, hul
Henderson kept on working and
spending money. The town got the
benefit, and ut the end uf liis term,
while Mr. Henderson was absent in
lbe old Country, he was renominated
and elected by acclamation. Why?
Because he was a man of the period
aud went ahead to improve his town
regardless of kicks or protests. A
piniiead is no good for nny town in
the west. It takes money to make a
town and it takes brains to push
things along. Cranhrook is a commercial center of a vast district and
should have a mayor and a council
that will understand the situation.
This is a crisis in the affairs of this
town, and every man who owns
dollar's worth of property id this
city should feel that he has an interest in the promotion of the welfare
of the place. We cannot afford to
do business on a small scale in Cranbrook. We must lie broatl-mintled,
■expansive in our ideas and determined
lo make Cranbrnok a larger and a
more prosperous town. Such a
policy means money for ynu and for
me. ' It means that your property
where you live, will he worth more
monev. It means that if von are
in business there is tlie opportunity
presented to do more business. It
means that if vou are n wage earner
tliere is a chance of getting better
waires. Lot us all get together and
wnrk for the advancement nf Cran-
hro'ik. What we wunt here and
in Kast Kootenav nnd the wav to
get it Is to go after it.

Tliere is a movement on foot to
build a skating rink tliis year. Cran-
uioo.t sliould have a skating rink, as
there are many peoplu in this cily
who enjoy spurt uf that kind and
there are men willing tu put up
money to help the movement along.
We have been accused of Iieing a
iiooster. We plead guilty to the
soil impeachment ami will only add
that so long as we can boost Cranhrook and Kast Kuotenay we will
.i-eli on working.
Since securing additional help on
the Herald slalT it is the Intention to
issue the paper not later than -i
o'clock Thursday afternoon. To be
able to do this it will lie necessary
to have all copy for advertisement's
in hand by Wednesday morning. The
husiness men of Cranlirook should
lake note of this fact aud get a
bustle on themselves, as no advertisement will be received after ten
o'clock Wednesday morning.
Keep on boosting Cranbrook. Xo
man can do better work than that.
Tliere have been some kicks from
outside people in regard to the increased rate of water. These people
are enjoying the privileges of schools,
light, telephone and water and avoiding taxation that the people in the
city have to stand. What the people
on the outside should do is to get
together and make application to become citizens of the eity by coming
Into tlte corporation. In this wav
all diiliculties will lie settled. The
outside people would get all the
privileges at a legitimate rate and
have no cause for protest.
City elections will soon he on and
it is up to lhe people to name candidates for mayor and City Council,
men who will lie progressive and have
the best interests of the city in
(Nelson News.)
"Tlie lumber eunditioifli through
the province, both at the coast ami in
the mountains, are very bright and
the operators of lhe majority ol the
mills throughout British Columbia
stale that they arc nut only feeling
a very marked improvement in demand, but llial much better prices
being obtained. In sume instances, in fact, sales are reported at
as high figures us were in efiect before the big slump uf two years ago.
The amount of logging that will be
done throughout the coast and mouti-
lain districts during the coining winter will be greatly in excess of that
uf either of the past two years in
anticipation of a greatly Increased
business during mid. In this connection a verv large force of men will
be required and the operators are
finding difficulty in securing the necessary labor. " At present the operators of the interior could give work
to^two thousand additional men in
the logging camps."
Thc above is an extract from ft
statement made to a representative
of the Daily News yesterday by W.
A. Anstie, secretary of the Mountain
Lumbermen's association, who returned to the city on Monday evening from a two weeks' trip to the
coast and intermediate points, during which time he visited a number
of the mills.
Mr. Anstie attended. the concluding
sessions of the forestry commission
arid devoted the remainder of his
time while on the coast to the tak-
in-r charge of thc affairs connected
with the Vancouver office of the
Mountain Lumbermen's association.
"Lumbermen generally are feeling
mtv optimistic regarding the outlook fnr the next season's business,"
continued Mr. Anstie, "as tho excellent rrop returns throughout, the
'■rairie nrnvinces cannot fail to have
IV effort of incrensint the demand
for British Columhia lumher. which
means ;\ renewal nf activity amongst,
Mi" mills."
Concluding Mr. Anstie was asked
reirardiiig the car siinnlv, nnd stated
thnt he   found it gratifying to     Iw
able to sny that the lumlier manufacturers of the interior have had their
requirements very well attended u
during the pnsl season hy the C. P.
K., wliieli is evidence that the railway eompnny has now realized the
Importance to the industry of maintaining an adequate car service, thus
obviating the necessity of delay
through a shortage nf rolling stuck
placet! at tlieir disposal.
Mr. Anstle leaves tomorrow morning to visit the mills along the
Crows Nest line.
Some Dont's Worth Noting :—
You don't buy shoddy clothing and
expect it to wear as well as all
wool made by a careful tailor.
You don't consult a cheap pettifogger when you need legal advice and
expect to win out.
You don't consult a quack when
you need a physician.
Then why not be willing to pay a
little more for the best paint, applied by skilled mechanics and have
the work last longer and look better.
Keep jn mind the fact that it costs
time and money to attain proficiency
in any calling.
Consult us fur the newest designs
in decorating and painting. We have
them to show you. Our aim is
it always has been, not to do cheap
work, hut to see how good we can do
it. 30

"The girl who works—God bless
her." She is brave and active; she
is not too proud to earn her own
living; she is not ashamed to be
lound at her daily task; she is studious, painstaking and patient; she
smiles from behind the counter or

of celestial grandeur and eternal
bliss; there is a memory of her own
sown into each silken gown; she is
like a beautiful mountaineer; her
character is pure as the bubbling
springs, strong as the rock from
which it Hows, and as high as the
mountain's topmost pinnacle. The
sight of her should be a line inspiration for us all. Her hands may be
stained by dishwashing, sweeping,
factory grease or printer's ink, but
are honest and helping hands; they
stay misfortune from many homes;
they are a shield that protects many
a forlorn family from the asylum. All
honor to the girl who works.
lt is unreasonable to expect an
adult from long idleness to be entirely innocent, and much less that
of a child. While we would not
keep a child steadily employed, yet
it should certainly have some duties.
Krom appearances, there are some
boys who are at home but for their
meals and to sleep. They can be
seen at auy hour of the day, loafing
iu groups about town or making
their way out of town to spend the
day—who can say how or where?
What can we expect as a result?
Can we expect to see boys of tender,
impressionable age, under such conditions, make worthy, intelligent, industrious, christian young mcn. And
where is tlie parent who does not desire to see his boys make such
men? Then be up and doing, for you
have a sacred duty given you to perform. Do not tell me you bave so
little time. You do many things,
less important, which absorb your
lime and attention. Let these
things go, but do not neglect your
If mothers would only realize the
full significance of the truth expressed in the trite saying, "As tbe
twig is bent the tree inclines," thc
next generation ot men and women
would surtdy bu better in every way,
for it is true that the future well-
heing of thc man or woman, physically, . mentally and spiritually, depends upon the thousand and one
little acts of seeming unimportance
that make up the child's daily lile.
It is the home training the child receives that makes its future "for
better or lor worse."
We do not know whether it is false
pride, false education, or a fashion
we have drifted into, but it is
plainly true that our girls more and
more shun housework, and many of
the new homes in these days do not
promise uninterrupted happiness from
this cause. The girls arc urged to
try their hands at everything but
the work of the home—the most
needed and healthiest pursuit of all.
Whatever tliere is content and peace,
tliere must be a good home. It is
impossible for a family to enjoy life
if the food is poor, the buttons off,
aud things generally in confusion. In
every household where love and happiness abound, there is mostly a
woman to he found looking after details, and sparing no pains to have
tilings comfortable and inviting.
How many impositions we unconsciously place upon children! When
small, they are subjected to kisses
tosses, poklngs, rockings, and a
multitude ol intimacies that would
lie roundly resented by older heads.
Then as they begin to grow, year after year, they are treated on every
new occasion with "Whv, how dreadfully you do grow! How frightfully
tall you are getting! You look
exactly like your aunt Nancy, or your
grandfather! Or, where do you get
the red hair? Or the freckles? Or
the snub nose?" etc. Personalities
are not pleasant to adults, even to
experienced persons who have learned
fo meet calmly, or parry such impertinences, but to children they are
positively painful, as their blushes
often testify, and tend to make them
bashful and dislike to meet strangers. Pray treat the little people
with perfect politeness ami considera
tion, for tbey are sensitive, and tlicy
do mind what you iu your thoughtlessness ignore. Tbey remember ill-
treatniint, too, often all their lives,
and it is the part of wisdom to acquire and cherish the love and respect of thc little folks.
In view of tbu numerous cures
wlucli Zam-Buk has worked when all
else has fail..., there is lutlc wonder
that |u the wii the doctor attending
Airs. J. P. St. Denis, of 305 Thompson St reel, Winnipeg, Man., should
icll her tiwjrc was nothing but Zam-
Huk coul.I cure her. The result

pra'ci, ioner, und having been com-
pleUij clu-iI bj Zam-Buk, Mrs. St.
iVin:. .,i\,., h', i experience for the
beneiit ol othei sufforors.
sbe says: "Eczema started on one
side of my face and nose. At lirsl
my nose fell sore, similar to what
one feels when having a bud cold,
i paid uo attention lo this, thinking
il woulil pass away in a day or so,
but lo my .surprise it got worse.
I'ho nose then became swollen nud
iiniii, ami turned a purplish red, us
well as part ol the cheek on that
side of my face.
"As the dUcaso developed pimples
and ulcers broke out, then tlie suin
cracked in places aud peeled oil in
iiaiics, leaving my lace ami nose raw
and sore. This condition reacted
ou my general health, uud l became
very ill. 1 could get no sleep ai
nlg'HJ because of llie irritation and
Lhe pain, ami my face was in such a
shocking condition lhat for two
months 1 did not go out of llie
house. I applied remedies wliich
were supposed to be gooil lor skin
diseases, but in vain.
"My doctor also treated me, but
without effect, until one day he said
llial the only thing which would now
lie likely to cure me was Zam-Utik.
"Acting on his advice, 1 piocurcu a
supply and found that even the first
lew applications had a soothing effect on the sores. I left off every
thing else in favor of this balm, and
applied it liberally every day to affected parts. In a remarkably sliorl
time, considering the obstinate nature of my disease, we saw truces
of improvement, which encouraged us
lo persevere with 'the Zam-Buk
treatment. Zam-Huk reduced the
discoloration, then the hard swelling
began to show traces ot leaving, the
sores seemed less angry, and iu about
three weeks' time most of the sores
were healing nicely. To cut a long
story short, i continued with Zam-
lluk treatment until mv face was
cleared completely of all traces of
the troublesome and painful eczema."
Such was the experience of Mrs. St.
Denis, aud scores of other sufferers
could tell of similar experience. Zam-
Buk is Nature's own healer, being
composed of pure herbal healing essences, and free from all trace of
harmful animal fat or mineral poison. It is a sure cure lor cuts,
lacerations, burns, eczema, ringworm, poisoned wound, festering
sores, bad leg, and all skin injuries
and diseases. Zam-Huk is also a
cure lor piles. Druggists and stores
everywhere sell at 50c._,a box, or
post fcee from the Zam-Huk Co.,
i'oronto, on receipt of price. You
are warned against cheap and harmful imitations sometimes represented
as "jusl as good."
THE LlyuuK vitality
Dear Sir:
The article under this heading in
llie last edition of tlio Ucrulu wus,
in my judgment, such a strange conglomeration oi contradiction auu
puerile generalities that some sane
statement regarding the matter
seems to be opportune, and I sincerely hope that others who have the
real prosperity of the community at
heart may be induced to give their
views also. We can never all agree,
but wc cau at least respect any man
who sets forth his position in a
calm and intelligent manner. In relation to article of last week, no one
of average education will give il
more than passing notice, but the
bucolic mind may be deceived into
thinking that the statements made in
tliat article are correct. I would at
least give the writer the credit for
thinking he wus right, but surely it
is far wiser for any man who has had
but little training in economics and
socialogy to write more carefully
upon these great themes. Of course
t must admit that this writer may
have had training in this direction,
but if this is the case he has eilber
forgotten the lessons learned, or is
wilfully careless in his expressions.
I had always been given to understand thai it was customary and
proper in discussing important questions to sign the article, or to
adopt at least a nom de plume. Atter reading the letter, however, I
have concluded in my own mind that
the writer was wise to do neither.
I will not trouble vou, sir, to afford me space, to cg«ihat the foolish
argument against focal government,
against which this unnamed individual writes. It will Ih- clear I v seen
by thinking men and women, that if
we have a right to vote ou a by-law
lo decide about the water, we have
au equal right lo vote upon a by-law
lo decide upon the whiskey. The
utter inconsistency of the writer is
to be observed when he uses that
unfortunate term "Socialism and
Anarchy" in relation to Local Op
t ion. We have never desired to
take this matter out of the hands of
the Legislature; what wo are now-
asking is, that the Legislature shall
decide for us, lhat a law making
possible Local Option in any place
where the majority favor it Is desirable, We have never desired to
force Local Option upon any place;
the verv name contradicts such
statement, We say that It, is fair
to allow the majority to rule. Such
is the basis of all modern government, the very constitution depends
upon it. ]| the majority of people
in any village, town, or city cannot
express themselves as to what they
want, and how they want to be governed, then wc had hetter go to Russia and be ruled hy autocracy. If
any man can show the unfairness of
Local Option I shall he very glad to
be set right upon the matter. T
contend thnt if a majority of people
In anv place can shew a just cause
for the requirement of anv law whatsoever, they have an undisputed right
lo do so, nnd that the whole fabric
of social economics depends upon pro-
lectin* Mmi right. If it can he indisputably shewn that hy thc sale of
tea, society iu general is being
cursed, the prisons tilled and tlie lunatic asylums crowded—If on authority of the highest officials in the
land, at least til) to 75 per cent of
the crime is the result of tea—if
every reputable university in the
world, the leading scientists, sociologists, philosophers, the.great hospitals, and the criminal courts all
combine   in   their testimony against
, and declare that it is an enemy
mankind—then,   1 say, the major-
of     voters     in any plaee should
havo the right to rid themselves   ot
't enemy as quickly as possible,
and lhat tlie state should outlaw the
lea trallic, and slop Its manufacture
at the earliest possible moment. And
if, because 1 like tea, but do not
take it iu quantities sufficient to hurt
myself, 1 should be a very poor patriot it I voted against the law t-o re-
mow it, simply for selfish purposes.
What applies to lea in the above illustration applies to liquor. It is
t.o longer a matter of opinion, it is a
gw»e matter of tact, ami that Is
why the drink trallic is being hurried
nui of civilized lands.
The old cry that Prohibition does
not prohibit is ever with us. The
answer to that cry is iu the form of
,i question wliich 1 have never beard
answered yet. If prohibition is
such a failure why do the people
continue with it? If more liquor is
sold under prohibition, as is frequently stated, why do tlm liquor
dealers oppose the enactment ol
prohibition? The funniest part of
our friend's article is that iu which
lie fears for the prosperity of the
country if the liquor trallic is suppressed. Let me assure him that
we shall still want corn, wheat, bar-
Icy, hops, bottles, corks, casks and
labels. Let me also say that the
question of revenue is not worth considering, seeing it costs our country
Ear more to keep up gaols, liinati
asylums and houses of correction, to
say nothing of the cost of rope and
lhe services of llie hangman, all to a
large extent made necessary by this
precious liquor tralUc—than ever the
liquor pays into the colters of the
stale in licenses. There is not the
-slightest doubt that our country will
uo infinitely richer when she totally
outlaws the whiskey trade, lock,
stoek and barrel. We are often told
lhat the liquor trade has always
been, and always will be. Such is
sheer twaddle.. They said that about
llie slave trade, but the slave trade,
as such, has gone, aud gone forever.
When the time comes for the intelligent citizens to vote on this question, tlicy should remember that they
are asked to say whether such a
uiw shall lie placed on the Statute
book of this provinee; not whether
wc shall have Local Option in Cranhrook, but whether any place where a
good majority of people are in
lavor of il, can have it or not. Al
present, whether a community want
Uie liquor or not, it is forced upon
i lie in, in order that a few may make
gain out of the many. There is by
tar more injustice under tlte present
system than tliere could be under
Local Option. Let the people decide, lf they decide in lavor of
liquor, the Temperance Party musl
accept the situation until education
has further done its work; and if the
ptople decide Dial the liquor must
get out, then lhe "trade" must try
and be satislied with the huge profits
of lhe past.
If tlie writer of the article to
which I refer, would do me the lienor
lo meet in public for a friendly debate, I would be happy to avail myself of this privilege, and would be responsible for half the expenses involved. This matter is very important, and a debate of this kind
would not be without its good effects to both the liquor men and Ht
temperance advocates. If the liquor
liusiiiess is such a fundamental one to
nur young country, I hope that some
champion may be'forthcoming to de-
feud it upon' a public platform. I
would respectfully suggest the following:
Resolved: "That the licensed liquor
traflic is one of the greatest hindrances to modern progress, and that
it is responsible for the
greatest amount    of       crime."
In a friendly way, I will
support that resolution against any
man who will meet mc fn open debate
on a public platform.
With many thanks, I am yours respectfully,
Robert Hughes.

A' remarkable accident, resulting in
lhe death of a man and serious injury tu a woman, occurred on the
t'armoulh lo Norwich train recently.
In the train were a numher ot the
Norfolk Territorial Force, who hud
been shooting at Yarmouth, and when
about live miles from the latter place
a bullet crashed through the partition of a compartment, passed
throtfgh the coat sleeve of Mr. Mission, of Cardiff, struck his wife in
the arm, inflicted a serious wound,
and then penetrated the chest of a
man named Waller Laws, of Norwich.
The train was stopped, and two
Territorials in the next compartment were detained by lhe police, On
arrival at Norwich hospital Laws
was found to he dead. At the in-
l|Ucst, William Allen Wade, aged 20,
a member of the Norfolk Territorials, said he had lieen tiring with
others at Yarmouth. After practice
was over he found a five-ball cartridge on tlie ground and took it
away with him. When in the train
he put I lie cartridge in the title, with
lire idea of firing it over Breydon
Waler, a large expanse of mud and
water just outside Yarmouth. After
lie had pointed the rifle out of the
window lie changed his mind, hut in
withdrawing the weapon he struck
the barrel against the compartment,
he had pointed the rille out of the
Uie trigger with two fingers und dis-
clwrgod it. lie had no Intention of
firing tlie rifle, and the affair was a
pure accident. Other evidence showed that the bullet went through two
partitions and struck a third. The
jury returned a verdict ol accidental
With no hope In life, a Hull laborer
named Joseph Lambert, made mor-
bidlj elaborate preparations lor hang-
self himself recently. Ho was a victim to cancer, and, having come to
ihe end ol liis slender savings, had
only before him lhe workhouse as the
alternative lo starvation,    lie lived
alone lit a cottage, and Ins sclt-
execution was thus undisturbed, lie
iiniii himsell a gallows ut the stairhead, using the stairs as the gallows
pit. His beam was made ol two
lengths of stout timber, lashed together. Through'one of these he
dulled n hole for a rope, and beneath tlte cross-piece he improvised a
rude platform to answer for tlie
trap doors, through whioh, at the
prison, tire condemned man falls as
lire hnugman pulls tlio lever. The
rope attachment to tlie beam mid
running noose were carefully spliced.
The preparations hnd plainly occupied lum some considerable lime.
From appearances it is also evident
thai he had read up the subject of
hanging; lie hnd tried to gauge Mie
ueeeRsary length ol the drop by his
weight, and, wben all was ready, he
had adjusted the noose lo his neck
wilh llie knot behind the ear, as the
professional hangman is reputed to do
in his subject. Hut careful as he
was, he bad overlooked one Important point which lhe hangman never
forgets—testing the strength of the
rope. Hul lhe jerk nt the cud of
tin' iltoj) had at the same moment
hilMM its purpose, and dislocated
his neck, lie wns found Iving dead
ni Hu- fool of the stairs.
\ gallant struggle for life was
made recently by one of tho erew
of ||. M. scouting ship Adventure,
The ship had just finished firing exercise oil Clacton and was aliout to
return to Sbeerness. Her boat had
heen hauled aboard and was being
secured, when au able seaman named
Arthur .lames Gibson fell overboard,
and wns swept astern by the tide.
I'he ship was turning at the moment, and Gibson was drawn under
by her starboard propeller. He rose
again, however, and, waving a hand
from the water to his comrades oa
the ship, struck bravely out and kept
himself afloat whilst a boat was Iieing lowered. A boat was manned
nnd quickly launched. Gibson was
lifted in, and then, and then only,
did his mates sec to their horror
that he had been swimming practically, if not literally, legless. Ills
right leg had been cut off below the
knee hy a stroke of thc propeller
which first, drew him umlcr, and his
left foot wns so badly lacerated
that little of the foot remained.
Willi these terrible injuries he had
Waved his hand to Ids ship, Iris mates
remembered, nnd had given no sign
nf the agony he endured. With all
haste he was taken aboard the   Ad
venture, and the ship's surgeon did
all that was possible for the poor
fellow. But Gibson succumbed to
the shock and loss of blood aiv hour
after the accident, before the ship
got to .Sbeerness.
The presence of mind of a young
comedian averted what might have
lieen a serious panic at the Middlesex
Music ball, Drury Lane, London, one
night recently. Preparations were
being made lor a cinematograph exhibition when suddenly the film
caught lire. A dense cloud ol smoke
poured into the auditorium, and
names shot out from the operating
box at the back of the pit. A woman rose to her feet and screamed.
This was the signal for a general
rush to ttie doors from all parts ot
the bouse, which was about three-
parts full. Mr. Charles Lilburn,
wlio was on the stage at the time,
however, continued singing, licgan a
dance, and called other performers in
Ure wings on the stage to join in the
chorus.' This bad the effect of diverting the attention of a part of the
audience, and meanwhile llie lire inside the box was extinguished. Many
were knocked down ami trampled on
in tiie first rush for the doors, but
no fatalities resulted.
To steal a sate iu broad 'daylight
iu one of the busiest thorougblures of
London, and escape capture, would
seem impossible, but it was done
one nay recently. The premises of a
watchmaker anil jeweler, situated in
Porchal street, Clorkenwell, were entered early oue Sunday night, and tne
foments of the safe rilled, The
thieves appear to have loiced the
door ol lhc room containing the safe,
and removed that repository, weighing two hundred pounds, to the top
of the stairs and then slid it down.
Upon arriving on the ground floor
the thieves must haw carried the
sale Into the street, put it in a
.chicle, and driven away. How tbey
managed to do so without being observed is a mystery, lire street be-
Ing bi no means a quiet one, and
aaviag a constable on duty not many
yards away. The empty safe, con-
taming receipts and bills, was found
■jj .t constable in another street
iomc distance away.
A gallant rescue from drowning by
Pollee-l onstab'lo Benjamin Powell, ol
ihe Denbighshire force, is reported
at Llangollen. The ollicer was on
duty on the Holyhead road, where it
runs parallel with tho Dee, when Ire
heard cries lor assistance. He found
tiie seven-year-old son of a local
doctor In peril In the stream, whieh
al ihis point sweeps rapidly, fourteen feet deep, through a fissure in
ihe roatl four yards wide. Without
iliVestlng himsell ol his uniform, and
despite the fact that he could not
swim, the constable plunged into the
water and managed to place the boy
un the hank. He then fell back into
the water exhausted himsell. The
constable, however, never lost his
presence of mind, and permitting
himself to be carried by tbe current,
was washed up against an outstanding rock, on which lie took a foot-
■iold and passed lo safety.
A shocking accident, resulting in
lhe death of a chauffeur named Edward O'Hara, belonging to Bedford,
occurred at Brighton recently. While
hiving along the front- a horse at-
niched to an ice van suddenly shied
aud swerved to the oil-side. In doing so It collided with a private
motor-car from London. To the
-hauRviir the smith n obstruction was
liiite unexpected, and More lie had
lime to realize what was happening
the shaft of the iee cart struck hlm
with sueh force as to turn the car
right round. It smashed into thc
hoarding fronting an hotel which Is
being rebuilt, frightening the horse,
whieh dashed away. It was found
that O'Hara was seriously injured,
and lie was taken to the hospital,
where he died later. Curiously
mough, the motor car was not seriously damaged, the glass windscreen not being broken.
A curious legend surrounding a
country estate in the Mcon Valley,
Hampshire, which has heen fulfilled
with painful reality, has set thc
whole country-side talking. The story
concerns the death at Corhampton
House, Corhampton, of Mr. Camp-
lell-Wyndliam, J, P., who, on thc
death of his mother on September 8,
'ast vear, succeeded to an estate
around whieh a legend runs that a
tna'e heir will not live over twenty
months after succession. Mr, Camp-
bell-Wviidliam was llie first male heir
for generations. In tore last stage of
his illness, Mr. Wyndliam prophesied
that he would die in lied twelve
moitUw tn the day hla mother
awav, and by a truly remarkable coincidence, fie died a few minutes afler midnight on that very dav.
"Death from paralysis brought on
by tlie current Irom a lo\ which lie
handled by misadventure," was the
verdict returned at an inquest held
recently at Giilingham, Dorset, on
Harry Andrews, nine, who died Irom
the effects of a shock from a toy
magnetic battery. Thc toy, which
was no bigger than a match box,
and cost two shillings, belonged to a
lad named Brlckcll, who left it with
his clothes while be was bathing.
Andrews picked it up and gave himself a shock. When he returned
home he    told his father that       the
lhock seemed to move al! the bones
in bis body.     A medical witness was
il opinion' that the current in the
lirst instance set up neuritis, which
gradually spread to the spinal cord
and Ifrain.
The extraordinary case of a woman
talking to a dead man was related
at the Shoreditch coroner's court recently. An inquest was held on the
body of Harry Beale, and his mother
said that when she returned home
from shopping one evening, she saw
her son in an upright position close
til'the ceiling. She chatted to him
and talked of every day events,
thinking he was doing something to
the ceiling, us they were going to
have it whitewashed. Then, as he
did not answer, sbe said, "What's
the matter with you?" and looking
round was horrified to hud that the
man was bunging from a lamphook
hv a rope. Sho immediately cut
him down, but he was dead.
A remarkable shipping tragedy is
reported from Bristol. The German
steamer Kirchberg was on her way
from Sharpness to Newport In
charge of Pilot Frederick Pick, one
of the Bristol Channel veterans. Mr.
Pick was standing on the bridge
navigating, the vessel when he suddenly fell down in an uucm.iscToiis
state and expired within a few
minutes. The result was that wHh-
oat her pilot tiie steamer failed lo
lake the correct channel, and she
went ashore just above tire Severn
A most successful case of divining
is reported from Aberdeen, More
water was required for the cily
asylum and diviners were culled iu
wlio located water at live different
sites. Two sites were operated on.
At both of these places wells were
dug to the lowest, point uf which a
fall could be obtained to lhe collecting main, and pipe lines were laid aud
connected to the nearest main. This
work entailed excavations to the
depths of nine feel anil eleven feet
respectively. The amount of water
obtained as the result of lhe work
was !> (inn and 5.000 gallons per dav
respectively, The other time sites
were not operated on nu account of
the fact lhat one was in all tiro.i-
abiliiv contaminated by sewerage;
another was on rising ground at
which water was located at a depth
of 15 feet, and probably below rocV.
The diviners were of opinion thnt tbis
plaee should not be tapped unless the
eitv wns pressed for water. Tbe remaining site was onlv seven feet
above tlte collecting main, and, as
the water here was located bv the
diviners at a depth of eight to nine
feet, the supplv could not have been
taken in by gravitation.
