Mrs. and Mrs. R_
This Railroad Man and His Wife Have Done What Any Wage
Earner can do.   Read their story:
Lady Caller : Why, Mrs R , I am glad to find you so comfortable and happy in your newly-
fumiahed home.   But I thought you were going to board until spring V
Mns. R.: It was our intention to board until we saved enough to pay cash {orwhat we needed to
start up housekeeping, but saving money is not so easy, and you know George got hurt in a wreck down
the line and waa laid up for some time. So after reading of the C. C. STORES' CREDIT SALE in the
" Herald " of Jan. 31st, we thought it a splendid chance to start up, and pay for the goods on THEIR
Lady Caller : I always deal with the C. C. S. It is so convenient to buy all you require at one
place, and there is tbe greater advantage, I think, of being able to confine yourentireaccount to one house.
Mrs. R,. That is just what I was going to remark. We have only one account, and bave furnished
this house complete- PARLOR, DININO-ROOM, TWO BEDROOMS, aud the KITCHEN. Besides the
BABY'S BUOOY there too. Then George got SHOES for me, UNDERWEAR and OLOVES for himaelf.
Our OROCBRIBS-wo bought them all there.
The Grocery Bill has to be Paid in Full every 30 Days
Lady Caller i Did I understand you to aay that you furnished two bedrooms 1
Mrs. R.: Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you ; that was part of our plan.   It only cost $42.50 more to fit up
the extra bedroom, and we rent it for f 10.00 a month.   That practically pays our monthly instalment on
the entire bill of furniture.
Lady Caller : Buying on credit, did you not pay a much higher price than paying oaBh ? Then
some stores have n private selling price, which enables tueui to put a little uu to credit customers.
Mrs. R.: I think we bought everything very reasonable, and as for putting ou a little to credit
customers, that is impossible in the C. C. STORES. Everything is marked in plain figures. I wilt get
the bill.   Just look through it and judge for yourself.
Lady Caller i Those prices are very reasonable indeed.   What terms of repayment did you get ?
Mrs. R.i We made a small payment in rash, the balance weekly payments of $11.00.

Ilr. Fagan, provincial health ot-
flcer, announced last week that the
Dominion government had come to
tlie assistance oi those interested in
the proposed British Columbia tuberculous sanitarium by offering a grant
of 400 sores of land located at Fish
lake, which offer, Dr. Fagan stated,
would be accepted. Fish lake lies
about ten miles i.ortbcast from Mam-
met lake, Is about iwetity-four miles
north of Nicola ami sixteen miles
south ol the C. P. R. main line. The
Itilude of Hie lake is some 4200 feet
bote si-si level. This altitudo is
considered a little too high to be
suitable lor the general sanitarium,
ami several properties along Kamloops lake at an average altitude of
1100 feet have been selected as the
best possible location for the institution, ami one of these will eventually
lie chosen. None ol these locations
is more than twenty miles Irom Fish
lake am) it is intended to use It as
what- might be termed an auxiliary.
II it is lound Hint the finances will
stand the outlay, small houses wlli
be erected on this land, and under
other circumstances, tent, will be
erected for the accommodation ol
(hose suffering from the ravages- of
the white plague. The lower altitudes, Dr. Pagan points out, and the
environment ol Kamloops lake, are
exactly suited to consumptives in
tlie second and third stages ul Ulo
disease. The establishment nt Fish
lake will be used lur those who are
classed as incipient consumptives ami
therefore are physically stronger than
the others and able to live in a rarer
Atmosphere. The land mentioned
can therefore he put to valuable use
in hastening the recovery ol convalescents and bringing about the
quicker healing nl those who plana
themselves under treatment before tin.

Ur. Fagan hopes tn he able lo arrange for the starting of work upon
tbe building at Kamloops lake in tbe
early spring and expects that the
undertaking will he so lar completed
by the tall, so that it will be possible to accept patients.
Dr. Fagan Is confident lhat the
success of his pet scheme is at last
practically assured nnd as a practical demonstration is already planning
an appropriate opening (or llie Institution, which, he feels sure, will
do much to promote the general
health and happiness of the people of
Mils province. It Is his Intention to
run an excursion to Kamloops lake
us soon as the. building is ready lor

and others Interested in Vancouver
and Victoria and other points on the
coast,   will te Invited to malm    the

clianging variety of the grandest

Montreal. Feb. 26.-A total death
rate ol 17 is the tragic result ol a
holocaust which swept the Hochclaga
Protestant school in tbe east end ol
this city this torenoou. The sombre nature ot the catastrophe was
relieved of its horror hy an exhibition
of rare heroism on the part ol tbe
principal, Miss Maxwell, who lost her.
own lite while trying to save her
charges. Tbe pitiful features of the
disaster is that the whole loss ol life
appears to have been due to neglect
of most elementary precautions on
the part of the authorities, who are
supposed to see after the safety as
weli as education of their young
charges. Although the children were
not properly trained in tire drill,
which might possibly have saved them
all, Uw teachers undertook to get
them out ot the building with as
little alarm as possible and when-' the
alarm was given, calmly told their
classes to put on their wraps and
go home. But the fire spread with
such fatal rapidity that almost ball
the children, the youngest ones, were
shut off tn the upper story. Irom
escape. Smoke prevented their going down stairs and no other method
ot escape was possible.
Bctore the fire alarm was sounded,
the men ot the local station were on
their way there, a passerby having
seen the smoke and dropped in to
warn the brigade. Immediately
Captain Carson and a number ol bis
men started out to the scene ami he-
tore the lirst alarm bad finished
sounding they were preparing lo rescue the children. So speedily bud
the flames spread, however, that even
In these few minutes -those children,
who had not escaped at. the lirst call,
were pinned in Hie upper flats ol Hie
school with a seething furni.ee of
smoke and flame beneath tlu'tn. At
every window were seen the imprisoned children and teachers, while trom
the windows on the lower flat nothing could be seen but evidences of
Captain'Carson nt once organized
his men lo set up extension ladders
to lire second story window where
Miss Maxwell was slgnnlllng for
help. The ladder was pinmnlly run
up and every man who could crowd
upon :t. got in position to make a
living chain to rescue Hie III tie ones.
Captain Carson headed tin. ladder inside   the    window   where was Miss
Maxwell, surrounded by a swarm ol
children, excited almost to the limit
ot. endurance. As soon as the firemen bad formed their living chain
ii safety, Miss Maxwell handed belittle pupils one by -one to Captain
Carson and they were swiftly passed
down the ladder from band to hand
to the ground. Thus the work went
on until probably 10 of the children
had been saved and it seemed that
mine were lelt.
The Captain Carson called to Miss
Maxwell. to save herself.
"No, there are others inside and I
must save them," she replied, and
ran hack to look for the other little
ones who she knew must be on tho
upper floor.    That was the end.
"Miss Maxwell ran hack and we
called to her to come out, as the
room was lull ol smoke and liames,'
said Captain Carson.
"I saw her hurry to look for any

overcome. We would not lollow her,
it would have -been simple suicide. A

London, Feb. 13.—When the Bank .
of England, last October, unexpect-
edly'increased its discount rat* to
li per cent, a rate touched but once
before since the Baring panic in 1833
a general alarm spread over all Europe, causing sharp fluctuations in
the foreign exchange markets in
Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam
aud Hamburg.
In New York there was an immediate advance of over 60 points in
sight exchange, thus effectually preventing the continuance of gold imports from London.
The stock market was thrown into
a stale of complete demoralization,
the sharp break in prices being accomplished by wild rumors that Russia was about to default in the interest payments nn its onprmous national debt.
Why a simple change in' the discount rate of the Bank of England—
the rate of interest ot which one
bank is willing to loan money to Its
customers—should be a matter, of
such importance to tbe money markets of the entire world seems, at
first glance, a  little eurious.
That is a matter of vital moment
tn the whole of Ihe commercial
world is known to everyone interested in anyway in foreign trade, yet
the reasons why such a worldwide el-
tc< I should be produced by the change
in the rate at which a single hank-
is willing to loan money are not
clenrly understood hy many, even on
tlie slocta exchange
So  closely  ennneeted   nowadays are
financial centers of the world,
capital can so readily he transferred from one city to another, that
anv change in the interest rate at
anv one important financial center
usually has au immediate effect on
ihe money markets of every other
important financial center.
This is particularly true of London, as this eitv Is not only the financial center of Great Britain, hut
tlie clearing house and financial center nf the entire commercial world
as well. It is through its almost
complete control of the money market of London that the Bank of England influences the money markets of
the entire world.
The conditions rendering possible
the control of interest rates in London hy the Bank of England are interesting and worthy of a brief description.
Willi very few exceptions the banks
throughout England do not pay a
fixed rate of interest the year round
nn deposits, but the rale paid beats
a definite relation to tbe Bank of
England rate. In London and Liverpool, for instance, the hanks usually advertise to pay about U per cent
below the official hank vale" on deposits.
The same system is followed In
making loans. A London banker
rarely lends money for any length
of time at a fixed rate of interest,
but, i nst ea d, protect s it self from
possible sharp fluctuations in the
money market by making loans on a
sliding scalr which bears a fixed relation to the official bank rate.
Any advance or reduction in flle
Bank of England discount cam.-.*, a
simultaneous change in, the interest
rate charged by every import-ant
bank throughout England on Its outstanding loans. Accordingly, not
only, every depositor, but practically
everv borrower of the Bank of England
is affecred by any change in the Bank
of England fate.
About sixty thousand men will be
required for railway work in Western Canada during tbe coming summer, according to the careful estimate made by investigators into tho
situation. Where this large force of
men is to be obtained is the question which is giving concern to
western contractors, who are anxious to complete contracts already]
undertaken. The information lhat
so many workmen will be required,
and that'they will be paid excellent
wages, is welcome news to tbe agents
engaged in the work of induction Immigration, and to those who are interested in the growth and progress
of the west. It is claimed that the
strong demand for labor, with all
that it implies, will have a greater
influence on local conditions than
anything else, and It is anticipated
lhat next season will be experienced

Young men, the first question your

of salaries Is, "Who can best be
spared?" The barnacles, the shirks-,
the makeshifts, somebody's proteges'
somebody's nephews, and especially
somebody's good-Ior-nothing, young
man, please remember that these are
not the ones who arc called for when
rcsponsuble positions arc to be filled.
Would you like to inlaw your own
future for n position nl prominence?
(Would you like to know Ihe prohabili-
Itios ot your getting such a position'
Inquire within! What arc vou doing to make yourself valuable in the
position you now occupy? II you
are tloinc with your might what your
hands find to do, the chances are-ten
to one that, vou soon will become so
valuable in that position that you
cannot be spared from it, and then
singular to relate, will be the very
time when you will be sought out lor
promotion for a better place.
It is more pleasant to be Invited
to take a higher seat than to be deprived ol it. It is more pleasant to
be king of a cottage than .a servant
of a palace. It is better to be a
good live cent piece than a bogus
quarter; in other words, it is better
to hold ourselves at what we are
honestly worth. The world is full
of people who never know or learn
anything, because thev think thev
know enough to begin with. Thousands are teaching when thev ought
to be taueht; thousands ' believe
themselves wise when their ignorance
is lamentable; thousands believe
themselves clothed in gold when they
are only thinly plated and the copper
shows throuirh in many places. The
wisest are comparutivelv ignorant
and thousands ol men who have grand)
ideas of their own abilities.will some
day wake up tn llie realization that
thi-y have been laboring under a
large sized delusion. Many a young
man's life is gilded hv bright dreams
that come in the early stage of the
Ramc, but later Ire drills that these
dreams arc only cinptv, and 0, how
little Is the change when it comes.
No reward comes to him who robs
himself of what he needs to sustain
life and health, or what is needed to
care lor his own, merely to give to
those who ask. No man has a right
to give what is not fully his .own-
no right to give away any time that
Belongs to another, to create poverty)

Pat Burns is not much alarmed, al
the cattle situation. He should be
as close m touch witb conditions as
any man in the industry. Speaking
recently of tiie effect uf the severe
winter on the cattle industry in Alberta. Mr. Burns said lhat as far
as -bis Arm is concerned there would
be no loss ot stock, as they were all
under teed during the extremely cold
weather. There is bound to he a
certain amount of loss every winter
where cattle are not properly looked
after. He considered that the loss
ot stock was greatly exaggerated and
would be found to be not over 25
per cent, ot what was expected.
People got excited when the cold
weather lasted such an unusually longtime anfa imagined their losses were
heavier than they will actually be
found to be. The present mild
weather will put life into the cattle
and restore the industry to its normal condition."
Beginning March 1, through trains
from Seattle to Minneapolis and
St. Paul, via Medicine Hat and
Moose Jaw, will he tun on the
Canadian Pacific. The route taken
will be from Seattle to Spokane by
tbe Northern Pacific; from Spokane
to Yahk (On the Crows Nest railway) over the Spokane-Inter national, and from thence to Moose
Jaw over the C. P. R. main line
and down tbe Soo line to.Minnea-
polls and St. Paul.
The Spokane-Intein.iti.inal Is virtually owned and controlled by the
Canadian Pacific. It is said that the
new train service will shorten tiie
time between the points mentioned
hy over twelve hours, and thus have
a tremendous advantage over* their
American competitors.
In the inauguration of this nvw
train service the ' Canadian Pacific
should be able to ensure to themselves the greater portion of tho

The new Sunday act goes into effect tomorrow, and after that, if ih«

II is evident that the reports ol tho
loss ot cattle on the prairie provinces
were woefully exaggerated. There
were a large number of cattle lost
from insufficient food, hut as com-

One of the best boosts that advertising iu newspapers has had for
years, and one that may uot coine
up again for years, has just been presented at Butte. Mont. There was
some trouble with the pressmen and
the newspapers, the pressmen do
manding un increase in ihe scale. As
the papers claimed that they were
running at a loss they refused to
grunt the increase and a strike foi
lowed, The papers suspended and
this left the city without any advertising medium. This condition has
prevailed for something like two
weeks, and the proprietors of the department stores and other large es-
tablisbmcuts unite iu saying thai
their business has fallen off from forty to sixty per cent, since they have
had no opportunity to advertise their
goods for the benefit of the public.
This fact demonstrates that iu this
modern age tlie business man who
would succeed must advertise. The
people look for it and expect it.

One Rev. Prof. Kilpatrick, of Knox
College, Toronto, recently addressed
the Toronto 1'rcsby terian V ouiih
People's Society and iu the course oi
uis remarks be gave ihe result of his
observations on tht Western mission
Held, and paid a tubule to in*
women of the Church iu Western Canada, who, he said, were happy wilh
their husbands in shacks like piano
boxes. The greatest grief in A Inert.i
was the Mormon settlement. These
people were Mormons first aud Canadians afterwards. Across the Ureal
Divide the work was harder. They
hud splendid mou, but wickedness
was rampant, and often entrenched.
Cranbrook, It. C, as lovely as an
English park,  was a seal tn Satan.
What do the good people of Cranbrook thing of such slanderous
statements as these given to the
people of Toronto and the
east generally? So far as the
Mormons are concerned, we can* say
that they have proven a well behaved, industrious class of immigrants,
and since coming to Canada, have
made their section of Southern Alberta blossom like the rose and earned for their people the reputation of
being law abiding, conscientious and
loyal. Hut the .Mormons arc able to
take care of themselves against such
attacks as are delivered by Mr. Kilpatrick. Hut when it comes to any
man, no matter who he is, stating
that Cranbrook is "the seat of Satan," we feel that it is time to call
a halt. Ou what grounds did Mr.
Kilpatrick make this outrangeous
statement? Was it because there arc
hotels that sell liquor in this town.'
Was it because there are men who at
times get more than they should have
of intoxicants? Was it because he
had seen men in rough clothes who
had just come in from the bush from
weeks of hard toil and (failed to
lend church to hear the reverend
gentleman? Was it because he had
been told that there were places of
sin in tills fair town? Arc these
the reasons that he should advertise
Cranbrook in tlie east as the wickedest city in Western Canada? We believe we are safe iu the assertion
when we say that Cranhrook has
more churches in comparison to hei
population than Toronto, the good
that she has more people attending)
church in proportion to her population than Toronto, the good; that
the people of Cranhrook spend more
money for church purposes in proportion to their wealth than the
people of Toronto, tho good; that
there are more readers of good literature iu Cranhrook in proportion to
the population, than there are in Toronto, the good; thai there are more
honest workers for a livelihood iu
Cranbrook in proportion to tin*
impul.ition than ihere are in Toronto, the good; that there are less
places of sin in Cranhrook in proportion to the population than there
are in Toronto, the good; that there
are fewer liars, fewer hypocrites,
fewer sycophants, fewer moral lepers, fewer gamblers, fewer slanderers in Cranbrook in proportion to
tbe population than there are in Toronto, the good. Whv should Mr.
Kilpahrick pick out Cranbrook as
the Sodom of the west, when a little
observation would have shown him
the truth? Why should he try
injure this town, when there are
hundreds no better and no worse?
Mr. Kilpatrick is Tn mighty poor
business when he gets hack to the
east, after having been treated in
most cordial manner in this town on
the occasion of his visit, and give utterance to such a vile slander.
The Liberals ot the Dominion gov
eminent should take hold of the
charges of graft that are being
freely circulated hy the opposition,'
and prove that they are absolutely
false. If this is not possible, then
use the iron hand of power to get
rid ot the grafters. No party can
survive the blight of political grafters.

We wonder where they learned that

Of all the tommy rot that has been
written or talked on the new Sunday
law is the statements made by the
radical advocates of this law regarding the publication of Sunday
papers. Anyone who knows anything
about the business knows thai necessarily nearly all the work done on a
Sunday paper is performed on Saturday, while nearly all the work done
... a .Monday morning paper must he
dime on Sunday. The Nelson News
is an illustration of this very point,
and yet the advocates of this law
would, by cutting out the Sund.iv
morning paper, force tbe employees ol
the News to labor nearly all daj
Sunday. There are a loi of fuiiuv
things in this world.

The Cranbrook board of trade at
its annual meeting adopted a resold'

The reduction asked for would make

of Canada would have to pay for
paint, but would add dollars to the

work as president wilh great enthusiasm, and during the entire year
he was always ready to lend his aid
for promoting any movement that
promised a benefit to Cranhrook. Mr.
Roberts has held the ollice of secretary for the past three years and nt
a great personal sacrifice he has attended to the duties of lhat office iu
a manner thai hns won for him the
praise of everv man who has any interest in Cranhrook. Of the new officers it can be said lhat Mr. Bealo
is a pioneer of this district and an
old resident of Cranhrook,, and all
that n man ean do for the advancement of this town, Mr. Heale, as the
Cl.iresholm    Review;   Bill  Bareln

.•XL   UU:    STEPS    HE    HAS
lialph Newman, a resident ol Edgo-
watur, Uucago, bas entered .i boiu-
t.uiuui and sought medical assistance
tu cute imu ot one uf tlie uuuu.il
malatiies thai ever alluded a human
being. lit* wants to he cured oi a
habit, contracted idly, and without
tuougiit of serious cousoquences, ami
a huou which has almost ruined him
in business, and socially, and wincu
he now* fears will drive nun insane.
Tin- habit is nut thai ot liquor,
drugs, cigarettes or tobacco. n'-bat
lie wants lu be cured uf is the habit
t-f counting every step he takes during the day.
So greatly has tills odd habit
grown upon him that he has  counted
every step taken during Ihe lasl lour
years, ami, for the last two years,
ending December .hi last, he has not
ultly counted his steps, but, every
idglit before retiring, has added the
last day's total to the gland total.
His figures show that during that
time be has (akeu and counted u
grand total of 1,1111,28-1 steps, and he,
figures roughly that he has walked
2,11)1 miles, or an average ol close
to three miles a day.
During the tour years in which he
has been counting his Steps he has
discovered Borne wonderful facts concerning Ihe number of steps required
io carry him from puiut to point
around Chicago, in fact he cau tell
without trouble exactly the uuuibei
of steps required tu walk from Jack-
sun boulevard to Randolph street,
along State, and, furthermore, he
makes the surprising statement that
it takes forty-seven more ijteps io
walk south on the cast side and
lifty-eight ,ore steps to walk south
on the west side than north ou bin*
same side.
He can tell the number of steps
between almost every point iu the
city, the (lumber of steps to cover
certain distances at certain times of
the duy, the number of steps per
block on asphalt, on wooden sidewalk, amt on cement sidewalk, and
all manner of strange and unusual
Besides this he can tell thousands
of distances In Chicago, counted by
the number of steps, the number ol
steps Irom building to building, from
corner to corner, and from alley to
alley. He has stepped off Chicago
until he is familiar with every pavement crack, and every kind of pavement there is.
Possibly the only really valuable
information to be derived from his
habit is that it is easier to walk un
cement pavement than on auy othei
Kind of pavement exceot on macadam

habit, and he started, in *nly out
of idle curiosity and to have something to occupy his mind, to coma
the number of steps he would take
between his home and the coiner at
Pop Morse's. II he could have foreseen the dreadful results perhaps In*
would have taken an Evans ton
These discoveries Interested him
and he began to count regularly. He
discovered that the number of steps
per block taken by a pedestrian on
Stale street varies in direct ratio to
the number of other pedestrians in
the throng.
For two years he continued to
amuse himself in this thoughtless occupation.
Then lie began to count to see how
nany steps he took in a day. He
extended it to a week, theu to a
Suddenly he realized that he could
not break himself ot the habit of
counting bis steps. He tried not to
count, hut whenever he walked be
found his brain mechanically registering his steps. He realized that
thu habit was costing him valuable
time, so be strove to break himself
of tlie habit of counting his steps.
When he discovered that this was impossible, seemingly, he became alarmed.
During all this time, in spite of
himself, he kept right on counting.
Every night,-just before he turned in,
he put down in.his note book the
total steps for the day, then took
nine steps from his bureau to his
hod. These nine steps he carried
over to the next morning. .So each
day the first step he took after getting out of bed he called ten.
Tue highest day's total steps in tho
two years was IT,294, and the lowest
was ail.
After he had been counting for a
year his wife began to notice his
strange abberation and the involuntary movements of bis lips as he
walked around the house. His business associates observed tbat he was
oddiy preoccupied, and tbat at times
they could talk to him for many
minutes before be could realize what
they were saying. As long as he remained seated he was all right, and
could attend to buaiutsa an well us

was on his feet and moving his mind
was filled only with tbe figures and

Regina, Sask., Feb. 25.—Word has
been received here of prospects of a
coal strike and a general tie up of
mines ol far reaching importance,
which may he expected at the termination of Uie three year agreement
between tht* operators and Diners
which expires on March 4 next. This
strike would effect every coal mino
in the mountains, in Alberta and in
Saskatchewan. The tieing up ot Uie
Grows Nest mini's would mean the
closing down of the supply on which
the C. I'. R, depends tor the operating of their engines between the
mountains and Fort William.
The men arc demanding higher
wages, a uniform eight hour day.
and fortnightly payrulls, none of
which the operators arc inclined to
concede. Unless I a settlement is
reached before March i th, a complete
tieup of all the western Canadian
coal mini's must result.

Seattle, Wash., Feb. 25.—What perhaps is the largest mastodon ever
uncovered completely in Alaska was
uncovered during the past six months
at Circle City by Max L. Lohbrun-
ner. according to advices received in
this city from Fairbanks, Alaska.
The mastodon was found on Alice
creek, a trubutary of Mineral creek,
which flows into Woodohoppcr creek.
To judge of the other dimensions of
the huge monster it must only be
said that one tusk, which is still Intact, is more than nine feet, eight
inches long, and has a circumference
of 18 inches. The jaws of the animal still have teeth, 4 in number.
Each ot these teeth, which have been
taken out and replaced, weighing 50
pounds. The other parts of< the
animal are in a poor state of preservation compared witb the tusk.
Lohbruuncr ilug the hones out at a
depth of eight feet below the surface
of the ground. He took great pains
to see that the bones were not burned Into charcoal while he was thawing the ground.
Lohbrunner has moved part of the
animal into storage at Circle City
and will hold it there till spring
time, when it will be removed to
Seattle, where it will be put together and eventually And its way into

got it before that time.
"Alice creek, where I found this
mastodon," snid Lohhriinner, "is one
of the most wonderful on earth, from,
a standpoint of research. It seems
to he the boneyard of a lot of prehistoric animals. We have found on
the creek the skeletons of mastodons,
musk-ox, cariboo, hear and other
animals. If this creek ever goes Into

worid wilt be astonished with tho
many finds."

As 1 still had a supply o( Zam-Buk
