with liim Ijv n Herald representative,
there is no question hut that the C.
I'. It. nro going to do all in their
power to bring to tho notice ot the
puhlie tin- advantages offered in
South Kast Kootenay. A gentleman ami a former resident of this
district win. arrived in the citv last
evening expressed extreme Tatiflca-
tion and surprise over the advancc-
nu'iit made by the citv of Cranhrook
during thc last four vcars ami a half.
"Cranhrook Is ono of the verv best
towns that 1 Know of in Western
Canada. It never seems to have a
boom, but it keeps coins on steadily
in a manner that should lit- satisfactory to tho property owners and tlic
people generally. 1 am specially
pleased lo notice the growth in home
pride which is evidenced lr the im-
provi-nirnts in the residential portions of the citv. I am satisfied that
Cranbrook is destined to l>e one of
tbo verv host towns in thc interior
oi British Columbia,"
There is n general feeling amona
tlie citizens that this is to be the bic
Cranhrook year. Tlic Board of
Trade is taking active measures
alone the lines of publicity and is being hacked up in ibe wav ot generous
support on the part of the people.
Heal estntc men are nl ready getting
busv and the signs of progress and
prosperity are noticeable on every
hand.
A talk with the renl estate men
and coat ractors this week brings
forth    the   unmistakable faet    that
IttKiil will be u banner year (or thc
district. At V. IIuie Haver's office
thc Herald was told that there were
many inquiries both (or city and
countrv property and that, tor
early in the season, sales were unite
numerous. Arnold & Huberts' mail
is heavy with inquiries tor lands
town lots atid business openings.
The Knot en-■ Investment Co. are
full of business and nre replying to
man questions through the mail
nml ' means of beautiful picture
post cards of the district, are showing people on the outside what Kast
Kootenay looks like, Beale & Klwell are keeping two stenographers
busy answering the inquiries that are
coining in and Mr. Klwell told the
Herald that he will be badly fooled
if this vear does not see a tremendous incoming of actual settlers.
F. A. Russell has only just opened
his office and got his shingle out, but
he too is in the march of general
prosperity.
Tlie contractors nre getting busy.
George It. Leask 6: Co. arc figuring
on a number of new dwellings, which
will be constricted this year and arc
looking forward to a busy time.
Baker & Banfifld have their hands
full figuring and planning tor various
buildings ami improvements to buildings. A. H. Ncsbitt has a number ot
buildings in sight aud thinks he will
have all he can do. ,1. F. Huchcroft
is preparing plans for a large store
ami several dwellings and is very
optimistic of the cominc summer. Besides all these things P. Burns & Co.
will build a big cold storage building, the Imperial Bank will put up a
handsome structure, the Masons will
erect a temple, a hig apartment
house is on the tapis, and the fifty

Washington, Mar. 2.—Although the
lumbermen had almost given up
the tight as lost, an agreement has
heen reached bv the house ways and
means committee to fix thc duty on
rough lumber at M.aO per thousand.
Tbis is a reduction of fifty cents a
thousand from the present duty, ami
while it does not entirely satisfy the
lumbermen, it gives them the reasonable assurance tbat the induslrv will
not be destroyed, as tbey contended
would have heen the ease had the
product been placed on tbe free list.
The reduction ot fifty cents a thousand is a concession to the demands
which were made tor tree lumber.
Tbe tight over this schedule has been

steel or iron.

(The Kettle   River    Journal, Orient,

During thc late Dominion election
in Yale-Cariboo, II. C, when Duncan
Itoss, of (Ireiinwood, and M. Burrill,
of Grand Forks, contested, they
both happened along the same road,
a short distance apart, between
Pentlcton and Keremeos, looking tor
votes. Duncan Ross, the hinder-
most, called at a certain farm house
where a bright little girl came to
the door.

Mr. .lustiee Mabee and S. J. McLean gut through a lot of business at
Nelson last Friday. A large number
of cases were heard and among them
some effecting Bast Kootenay.
Speaking "I these the Daily News
says:
Robert     Robson's    application   re
boat and train service on the Crow's
Nest branch of the   C.P.U. was   dis-
Imissed, tht;   complainant uut appealing.
Air. A. L. Watts asked for an order
compelling the C.P.R. and other railway companies in British Columbia
to comply with sections 386 ami 2U7
of tbe Railway Act bv cutting and
destroying all thistles and noxious
weeds and destroying all Inflammable
material along the right-of-way. Mr.
McMullen appeared for the C.P.H.
Chairman Mabee pointed out that the
remedy lay in the hands of the
citizens and thut au order of thc
commission wus not necessary. Any
municipal ollicer or justice of thc
peace could do the work, send the
bill into the company, collect for thc
sumc nnd also collect the penalty
under the provisions of the act.
Mr. Watts promised to attend to the
case of the C.P.R. in his district and
passed to bis next application.
Mr. Watts'   next application   "was
for an   order   from   the commission
for    a   station   at  Wattsburg.   Mr.
Watts stated that he had sold    cer-1
lain land for station purposes to the;
company and that a clause   in     the i
agreement bound   the company to put
lu a station at   Wattsburg.     Asked
by the chairman for a copy of    the
agreement,   Mr.   Watts   said he had
none.    The agreement was made out
in triplicate and the C.P.R. had   obtained possession of all three copies.
Since then he Mud tried in vain    to
get one of   thc three returned       to
him or to   get    the station   put in. j
and   his    letters   had not even been
answered by the C.P.R. officials. Mr.
brook aud Fernie Farmers' Institute,1
asked for ah    order compelling    the j
C.P.R.   to   put     in   adequate cattle
guards on the Crow line,     Chairman
Malice explained at length that     thc
commission     was   considering     and
drawing    up    resolutions     regarding
fencing ami cattle guards that would
". the varying conditions of Canada and work no hardship. The importance of the question was fullv recognized by the commission, whieh
was deluged with complaints, but it
was a hard matter to handle. The
whole question was.still under consideration.
Mr. Watts also presented a complaint that the C.P.R. had blocked
certain roads and asked for an order!
for their restoration by thc company.
.*£ter considerable argument and explanation, in which there was more
than one livelv pn»-u"e of arms between Mr. Watts and Mr. McMullen, '
the chair made an order that the C.
P. R. engineers should examine thc
road in question at once and report to the board, after which the
damage would be repaired.
McMullen thought it possible that the
addition of the station clause by Mr.
Watts bad caused the tielay, such addition, perhaps, being unauthorized.
After a lengthy discussion thc chairman gave an order for the production
of a copy of the deed or the land
from thc Nelson registry office. Acting Registrar .Johnson, who was in
the court room, went In search of
the document, and, returning, handed
it to Mr. Mabee, who read aloud a
clause binding the C.P.R. to build
the station as stated by Mr. Watts.
After what had gone hefore this climax was almost dramatic, the C.P.
R. officials present having shown no
belief in Mr. Watts' claim, hut Mr.
McMullen gracefully admitted the
company's obligation on bearine the
clause fend. After this Mr. Watts
proceeded to show that, apart trom
tbis agreement, Wattsburg wns entitled to a station. An order wns
Ie that plans for thc station
should be submitted to the commission within two months and the station built within (our months.

WILL BE THE   LIBERAL CANDIDATE Kt)R THE LETHBRIDGE
DISTRICT.
The political ball started rolling on
Tuesday moruiug last at Lethbridge,
when the Lethbridge District Liberal
convention opened its sessions in
(diver's hall. There was a very
large number of delegates from every
part of thc constituency, every quarter being represented.
The afternoon session opened shortly after two o'clock with Mr. Simmons in the chair. The delegules re-
sponded to the roll call. The
nomination was made by ballot and
resulted in four men being named,
\i/.. in. .1. II. Rivers, of Raymond; 11. A. Driggs, of Orassy Lake,
\\. W. [louglnss, of Tabor; and W. (i.
Hitchcock, of Bowvillc.
The supporters of Mr. Hitchcock
■withdrew his name, leaving the conic.-;! between W. W. Douglas and Dr.
.1. II. Bivers. The vote being taken,
resulted iu the election of Dr. Rivers
hy a substantial majority. Dr. Rivers is therefore the Liberal candidate
for the Lethbridge districl.
(Dr. Rivers is a brother-in-law of
W. D. Hill and bus many friends in
Cranbrook.)

A MIGHTV GOOD SUGGESTION
The Editor, The   ('ranhrook Herald,
City-
Dear Sir: Would you kindly permit
me space Im     the following suggestion:
The citizens of Cranbrook arc, I be-
fullv alive to the -reat possibilities
uf this section of British Columbia,
fur fruit culture, ami tlte Board of
Trade doubtless intend to do good
work this year in advertising our resources throughout thc Dominion.
There will probably he a large num-
her of visitors looking over our land
with a view to settling here this
spring, nnd I think we require more
practical demonstration of wbat can
be done in fruit culture. A large
number nf gardens will probably be
laid ttut this spring, and would it
not be a good idea for every resident
of Crnnbrook with a garden, t-o plant
a few apple trees and smalt Iruit
trees, and in this way we shall all
he assisting in the good work. A
number of residents are already doing this, but il it were more generally- dune, greater good would bo accomplished.

WAGES FOR   C. P. K. MACHINISTS.
Winnipeg, Man., Feb. 3fi.—A notice
was posted at the Canadian Pacific
shops here today announcing that the
wage rate established by the board
of conciliation in August last vear
will hold good till April 1, PJ10.
PMOlLCr THE HU-HE UBOfitR  '
The Editor, "Herald," Cranbrook:
Dear Sir—As the erection ol the
new schools will mean the expenditure of some $50,0011 of the money of
tbe taxpayers uf Cranbrook, I think
it proper and fair that the men who
provide the taxes should huve a prior
claim to the earning of thc proceeds
of the increased taxation rendered
necessary by the recent bylaw. The
man who provides the means for
building those schools should have a
claim superior to an outsider to
sharing iu the distribution af proceeds of his thrift and industry.
There is a possibility of some outsider coming in and securing the
work uud the profits. It is right
that such a possibility exists; but
other things being equal, or even
nearly equal, my view is that it
would be fur and away sounder bust.
ness for those who will have the
power tti decide in the matter to
favor a Cranbrook contractor or contractors, since it would secure badly
needed worn for local labor, carpenters, painters, brick layers, masons,
plasterers and plumbers, besides leaving considerable money with thc
local wholesale supply houses fur
hardware, lumber and so forth. Mj
argument goes merely to tbe sound
conserving of home industry and
home lahor on lines suggested • •■ the
action of the city authorities of Fertile. There thc outside contractor is
compelled to pay $50(1.00 for a license to do business and must give a
bond tu stay and do business there
for twelve months. If such a
course i.s fair and reasonable for
Fernie it cannot be unfair or unreasonable for Cranbrook, provided it
lends to keep trade at home and to
prevent the importation of outside
lalior. when we have humfreds of men
idle this moment in everv line you
could mention.
Either directly or indirectly every
man aud woman amongst us is contributing lo this Jftii.tuiu purse we
are banging up, nud bas a tetter
right to the earning id a part of it
| than the outsider who never put up
a cent. Trusting ihat the point
will he recognized and that this letter mav tend to stir public thought
along the lines I have suggested,
I remain, yours trulL

til a lady uf American birth who now
lives in England. Possibly her nd-
w-ntiirt* wns piiimplod by Buceetses
in similar cases when passing tbe
New York customs. The lady was
returning to England from one ol tho
Swiss winter resorts, where she had
bought a parcel ol valuable lace, so
before leaving Franco she swathed
herself about tbo waist with the embroidery, and embarked in the
steamer feeling decidedly comfortable, The presenl popular style ot
dress, however, docs not readily lend
itself in those conditions ol transport. Tbe initial discomfort had
grown Into positive pain before the
vessel gol undo! w.iy. The lady
found lhe torture ttuondurablo except
when maintaining nu upright posture*
It was tbe reverse ot comforting to
overheat the conversation of two
fellow-pussongers, one of whom was
n Hi fining '■■■■■■ experience that the penalty In a iloteetod ease ot smuggling
was three limes the value ol duty
relating to tlic goods. How she ultimately disembarked and satisfied
ibe revenue ehalleive she scarcely
knows, but when she reached her
hotel and divested herself o! her
spoils she was in a state bordering
mi collapse Only onco was tbe
story unfolded as Btlrrlng drama.
That was transformed Into roaring
comedy when a member ot her ilrst
audience tendered tbo information
that (Heat Britain has levied no

The discovery ol un important
seam of iron ore in Kent and Sessex
seems likely to lead to a revival   ot
j tlie famous old Sussex iron workings,
■ which have been abandoned now (or a
century or so. For hundreds ot
years there were iron furnaces in
j what are now quiet countrv parts ol
Sussex—the site perhaps marked by
the old ponds which once supplied
power for the hammers. It was an
old complaint—you find it poetically
expressed in Drayton's "Polyolbion/1
says the "Manchester Guardian" —
that tbe Sussex forests were cut
down to supply the furnaces with
fuel. The great guns for our warships were of old made in the Sussex
foundries, and it is said thnt Ralph
Hogge, a Sussex iron-master, made
the first Knglish metal cannon in
15*13. l.amberhurst was a renowned
plaee fur the making ol guns—some
of tlte biggest came Irom there. At
Lamberhurst, too, were made tbe old
iron railings round St. Paul's—2,50b
of them, each 5 leet ti inches hish.
i A record in life-savins difllcult to
beat  has been achieved by Mr. Geo.
j Little, n lighterman,   of Hromlcy-by-
1 How, Kent.     He has been instrumen
, tal in saving over 40 persons Irom
drowning. Ile possesses the Koyal
Humane Society broir/e medal with
three clasps, two silver medals Riven
by private individuals, and 12 ccrti-
lientes, "1 am 4H years ol a^e now,
aud I learni to swim when 1 was
ten," said Mr. Little in an inter-
Mew. "The mosl excitiug rescue 1
ever made was when a man tell ofi a
barge while going under Dow lock
bridge.      As thc barge was   moving
[ there wns a possibility of his being
crushed between the boat and the
sides of the lock. I jumped overboard, and just when he came to
the surface   thc barge swunc round,
i threatening to crush us both. 1
pushi*d   him    under    the water and
I swam with bim beneath tbe harge,
bringing him to thc surface on the
other side, where there vvas plenty ot
oom."
A wild scene was enacted in tbe
Oxford police court recently, when a]
prisoner made a desperate attempt at.
escape. An clderlv man, who gave |
the name of William Sykes, but
whose first conviction was in the i
name of Richard Halstend, of Wakefield, was committed for trial Ior ■
burglary. He appealed to the Bench'
to deal with tbe case summarily, and
j when met with a refusal he leapt
over the rails ol the dock. He was
seized by a number ot constables, and
1 a terrific struggle took place. It
was only by the united exertions ol
eight constables that he was carried
to thc cells. In the course ol the
hearing the prisoner admitted having
becn liberated (rom Dartmoor a fortnight ago, and had forfeited a thirteen months' ticket ol leave. .
The will has Just been proved in
Liverpool   of   thc late    Mr.   Becket
| IIIU, Liverpool managing director of
| the Allan Steamship  company,    the
, value of the estate being £94,254
gross.      »r. Hill   directed that the
1 following shall be inscribed on his
tomb:
I Let on his soul kind judgment tall,
Who did his best for one and alt.
I He further requested that the Inscription should mention tbe tact
that he had helped to change paddle
-tugs to screws, and    initiated Ugb-
pressure engines and twin screws for
ocean-going steamers. It is also to
refer to his introduction ot the
Steam Lines Conference, and bis
starting of thc Shipping Federation,
tbe Loudon Exchange and tlie British Empire League.
With a large sum (if money in his
possession, a man of miserlr habits
died recently at tbe David Lewis
hotel, Liverpool. He was found unconscious by a fellow lodger, and,
despite prompt medical attention, be
died in half an bour. The man was
very poorly clad, and had the ap-
peatance of being halt-starved. When
his clothes were examined; however,
there was found concealed about him
£32 in gold besides a quantity of silver and copper money sewed into the
lining of bis vest. There was also a
bank-book showing be had £_<hj
standing to his credit. He was registered ut the hotel in the name ot
James Dunn awl he represented that
he was destitute. The occupants ol
the hotel provide their own lood ia-
ciliiit's lieing given for cooking it.
The sleeping cubicle costs onlv a topper or two per night.
The lecture room at Gresbam college, London, one day recently echoed with strains uf music Irom
quaint instruments, some of them
thousands ut years old. Sir Frederick Uridgc was lecturing on the    in-
umm*tits of olden times. Holding
up what looked like un uld school
ruler, he said: "This is a Nay—tbe
llute of the Eeyptians. lt is probably U.Ubb years old." An instrumentalist who played on the llute,
and there floated across the silent
lecture roum a faint, sweet, eerie
sound. The notes gradually resolved
themselves inlo a melody—"Annio
Laurie." "Soft and delicate," was
Sir Frederick's comment on the
performance; but he added, with    a
imile: "The tune you have heard was
not played upon the banks of the
Nile ti.GUl) years ago."
A policeman of Uurton-on-Trcnt
has just had a tooth drawn in tbe
execution ot bis duty. This volunteer for the operating chair explained the affuir in the local police court, when Percy Louis fallen-
der was prosecuted lor practising as
a dentist, without having the requisite qualifications. To convict Alt.
Callender it was necessary Ihat some
devoted constable should play the
somewhat unpleasant part of patient, The constable in question was
told to go and have the tooth drawn,
aud he went, accompanied by a
solicitor's clerk. The dentist extracted thu policeman's molar witb
skill and promptitude, and then something thc patient said made him suspect something, and he refused to
take any payment. The dentist was
lined two guineas by tlie bench.
An ex-artilleryman living at Yarmouth, wbo has been totally iucap-
iidled from earning u livelihood
through blindness, bas just received a
pension at tbe rate of id per day,
wilh ull arrears. He was not aware
be was entitled to one when be came
out of the service, but the Rev, \V.
T. Goodrich, in whose district he
lived, finding out tbe circumstances,
recently laid a statement before the
t'hclsea authorities with the result
that the veteran was found to be
ntitled to a pension and £139 has
been remitted, whieh it has been arranged shall be disbursed to him at
the rate of hn per week, and in that
way will last him a long time, while
be will not be barred from a Slate
old-age pension.
Ten days atter the suicide of a
friend at whose house he used to
spend his nights, Mr. Lumley Bent-
ley, a chemist, living at Collingham,
twelve miles from Leeds, died from
poison. He was found in his sitting
room wiih a glass beside bim. On
the table were "Virginibus Puedis-
qtie" and La Rochefoucauld's
"Maxims," while Kipling's "Seven
Seas" had fallen from his hands and
lay on tbe iloor, open ae "1.'Envoi,"
which contains the lines:
When earth's last picture is painted.
And   lhe   tubes   are twisted    and
dried,
When the oldest colors have faded.
And the youngest critic has died,
We shall rest.
The Dudley police authorities recently adopted a very effective method of dispersing a crowd ot bedstead
trade strikers who were disorderly.
The places of the strikers at tbe
ory had been filled, and when the
time came for the strike-breakers tn
stop work, a large hostile crowd
natliercd. Stones were thrown and
windows broken, and so disorderly
did tlte crowd become that extra police had to be summoned. Even-
tiially the services of the lire brigade
re requisitioned. A hosepipe played on lhe crowd, and thev dispersed
in quick time.
In Uie London Shciifi's cotirg recent iy the undefended case of Ppken-
lieimer vs. Forley, counsel, said thai
the defendants, Mrs. and Mr. Forley,
iwed £30 for rent. Being unable,
after obtaining judgment to get anything by the otdinary means, plaintiffs had to ask tor a writ of
"elegit,'' a procedurre some 1100 or
THO years old. The jury had to sav
whether two bouses be.lonbed to Mrs.
Fortey, and it they did belong to
her, what was their annual value.
The jury having answered the questions, plaintiffs will take possession
ot the property until the debt is
paid.
j When a man named Geor-T Farmer
wus bound over at Bromlc
recently, tor twelve months under the
new act for thc prevention ol poaching the police said it had been difficult to catch thc defendant. The
man did not trespass, hut staved in
the road and sent the dog to poach.
It wus a wonderfully trained animal,
and answered the signals made to it.
On the least sign ol anyone on tbe
watch, or on the approach of a policeman or gamekeeper, the do- on a
signal would drop what he was earning and make tor cover.

TO FILL CANADA WITH YAKS
[Tho Literary Dif-est.)
ln tliat delightful walk, "Th* Bad
Child's Hook ol Beasts*" llilairc Brl-
loc sings:
•'.\s a friend oi lhe children eommeiid
ine to the yak;
Vou will find ft exactly the thin,;.
It will carry and fetch; you can ride
on its back
Or lead it about with a string."
Although some of the qualities
here attributed to the yak arc
doubtless imaginary, the second line
appears t.. be truth as well as poetic. In a contribution to Country
I.ile iu America (New York, Kebru-
arj i entitled "Thc Vak—A North
America Opportunity," Ernest
Thompson Sctou assures us that thc
animal really is "exactly the thing
loi Canada and Alaska" Tlteie
exists iu America, he points out,
a vast belt oi unsettled country extending Irom Atlantic to l'acittc,
Irom .Maine through Canada to
Alaska, aboul 1,01)0 hy iou miles,
which would be suited to cuttle raising were ils winters uot so severe.
Here, he tells us, is the yak's
chance; lor thts auimul is able to
withstand the cold uf just such regions as this.    Says Mr. Seton:
"With four mouths ot hurd Irost
and deep snow the ordinary range
cattle can not thrive, so that practi-
cally the north limit ol cattle-iunch-
illg, without winter houstii" and feeding, is thc south limit ol the so-
called Canadian fauna—uot the south
boundary of Canada, but a line crossing irom the south end ol Lake Winnipeg to thc north Saskatchewan,
then southward along the Itockies
into the I nited States.
"Reference to the map shows thai
tbis area is at least equal in si/.e to
all the cuttle ranges hitherto utilUed
in America. At present, however,
il is iu a primitive condition, not
tinned to productive use except ou
tlie edges by lumbermen, und iu general bv u lew trappers and ludlnns
who need not be interfered with by
anv stock-raising enterprise.
"Attempts to use this cold
range have not heen wanting. The
American huHalo and its various
crosses wilh the lone-haired cattle ol
lite Highlands have been tried, but so
lar without satislactory results,
childly because ol thc unmanageable
nature ol the huilalo. it is unreliable iu temper, almost impossible
lo drive, and ever ready to stampede
in the wrong direction.
"A hetter solution ol the problem
ts ottered us ready-made iu Asia,
where they have precisely thc same
conditions to lace. The yak or woolly os i Uos gtuuniens, Linn.) has
been formed by nature lor the northern ranges uud lias long heen domesticated hy man, so that the work oi
adapting and subduing is already
luue. Its native haunts aie thc
mow-clad, rocky hillsides and bare
mountains ol Tibet, even up to 20,-
uuii feet ubove the sea, going higher,
as some think, than auy other animal. Uut experiments show that It
thrives equally well near sea level,
as at Shanghai, Nice, 1'iiris, Antwerp, and Woburn Park In England,
as well as in the London Zoological
(iurdens.
"Its native lood is a coarse, wiry-
grass (whence one ol its names, poe-
phagtis) ot grass-cater, but thv experiments at Woburn Park and at
the London Zoo show that it will
eat anything that common cattle will
eat, and that it thrives equally well
on stud that in tlie barnyard would
lie thought very poor loader indeed.
"In size the yak resemble* common
cattle. Prejevalsky says tha bulls
are live to six leet high at the shoulders und weigh 1,000 to 1,2011
pounds, but thu accounts al various
other authors would suggest a much
greater weight, ln build it is like
a common ox with the hump ol a
bison, but thc distinguishing feature
ol this cold-ranger is its coat. On
the upper parts generally it is three
oi lout inches long und hut little
thicker than that ol a well-Iurred
Highland bull, but It lengthens on
the sides, till the throat, shoulders,
liellv, and hams are covered with a
dense hairy (ringe that reaches near.
ly to the ground. The tall is so
enormously bushv and ' With the
hairy hinges is such a generous coveting for the hocks that it is difli-
cttlt to see how any wolf could ham-
slring a vak. Thus, its ample coat
ailonls it'an ample protcctioo Irom
[lies iu .summer, Irost in winter and
Ives all the time.
'The neat allinity ol this animnl
with the common cattle is .shown
liy the fact that it can he readily
crossed with any ol the domestic
breeds. It is particularly lond ol
rugged hillside pastures where it
scrambles among the rocks like a
goal, or grows lat nn miserable wi
urass among which European stock
would starve. The country along
the north shore ot Lake Superior
would make a veritable Happvlund
lor the vak."
The matter, Mr. Seton noes on to
tell us. is not to he allowed to real
nu a theoretical basis. He himself bus called the attention ol the
Canadian government to the opportunity, und he has hern given auth-
ority lo lest the matter praetieal-
le. ' He says:
"I found no difficulty in getting a
svmputhetl" hearing on the yak uues-
lion Irom the very-much-alik« aith-
orlties at Ottawa. I was asked to
solve the question by getting a small
herd to begin with, as well as lull
information on methods ol management.
My opportunity tor the last I recognized when on a visit to Woburn
Abhev, where lor many years this
animal has been ao successlully bred.
The whole scheme was still lurthcr
advanced, when, on hearing the details ol thc proposed Introduction
llis Grace the Duke ol Bedlord, with
characteristic generosity, presented
to the Canadian government t held
nl six fine yaks to be the breeding
start lor the enterprise.
These are to be handled first hy
the experimental larm st Ottawa.
Their number will be increas*-! by
Iresli importations as soon as einer-
ienee shows that it is justifif-l. intimately breeding-stock will be sent
tn each ol the Western and Northern

thus in time we hope to eBect a

Kast Kootenay is fortunate in having a man like A. E. Watts to fight

Watts showed both intelligence and

NATIVE WOODS
HOW    THEY MAY    BE UTILIZED
KOR FURNITURE AND FINISHING.
The longer one lives in this country Mie mine natural resources arc
discovered. fl. It. Leask has discovered another source of revenue in
the use of native woods for house
furniture. A representative of thc
Herald failed on Mr. Leask one day
this week and was shown exactly
what could be done with tbe native
tamarac and fir. Not onlv is tho
linish of Mr. Leask's house of native
woods. but        it        is
Ished in various colors and
highly polished, in faet with as high
a polish as a piano case. In this
way, while Ihe wood itself is simply
native tamarac. Mr. Leask bas mie
room linished in what looks like walnut, another in mahogany, another in
mission oak, and so on. But this is
not all. Mr. Leask has had made
some verv handsome pieces ot furniture from native woods, which look
fully as handsome as if made in a
furniture factory in the east. TTiere
is a filing cabinet which is a work ot
art, a fire nlaee and over mantle
which is particularly fine, a bookcase
and a table, all of which cannot, be
distinguished from thc product of the
best manufacturer on earth. Mr.
Leask savs Ihat there is a splendid
opening fnr a furniture factory here.
to make mission furniture from the
native woods whicli, be says, could
be made even more handsome by
quarter sawlug. A <lrv kiln and a
workshop with some light machinery
is nl) that would he needed to start
this enterprise which, it seems rea-
sonnhle lo suppose, wmild be verv
profitable. One thine is certain and
that is Hint, there is a limitless
vitriol) of grain effects to he had
from hnth tamarac arid fir, quite as
manv as ean be obtained from the
hard woods. Again should some
classes ol furniture require to he of
real oak, maple, or birch then Mr.
Leask snirgests thai it would be an
easv nintlur to linpnrt veneer nf anv
nt   these    woods,   using    the   native
w Is as a basis.     Another     thing
that Mr. .Leask thinks could be done
is to make veneer nu>t of tamnrar In
the same way as veneers of any other woorltt are made. It this could be
done, ami there seems to be no reason whv it should nut. the tlw Tain
effect would be entirelv different, as
the veneer Is made by circling the
tree, but there Is no -jiiestion but
thnt il would be verv handsome.
These suggestions of Mr. I-eask's
should have tlie effect, of bringing in
someone who is interestu'd in these
matters.

On Monday evening next Joseph
Murphy's masterpiece ot Irish plays,
the "Kerry Gow" will be at the
Auditorium. The story is one appealing to thc best in every man
who loves u lover and hates a
scoundrel. It touohes the hearts, thc
sympathies, the manhood of everybody, and is strong in human interest, strong ia love, strong in song,
strong in humor, strong in plot and
strong in everything that moves an
audience to enthusiasm. Each minute tears and smiles mingle like
shower and sunshine to make a glorious spring of everlasting enjoyment.
Tliere is u heart throb and a shout
of praise in every speech. Dan
o'lluiu (the hero) stirs manhood to
the heroic point. It Is a play that
has withstood the crucial test of
time ami should be seen by everybody. Among the exciting scenes
are the t .cape ot Dan O'Hara from
prison, the blacksmith at his forge
and the flight of the carrier pigeons.
Scats should be reserved lon-z in advance of tbis attraction.
Cranhrook can boast of having one
of the. very besl boot and shoe makers in the west in tlie person of
Joseph Maripodi. Mr. Maripodi is
an Italian and has been at the business ever since be w&m a small boy.

One of those rare treats in the line
of amusement, which is oflered from
time to time by reliable managers
will hi' the appearance of the "Kerry
Gow," at Uie Auditorium on Monday
night next. The story of Joseph
Murphy's famous Irish domestic
ilrama, Kerry Gow. which means the

fact ami tells of Dan O'Hara, the
smith, in love wieh a girl who also
has another suitor, Valentine Hay
As it is a crime punishable by
transportation or death to have oik-
es—formidable weapons—in one's
possession. Hay causes several to he
hidden in the blacksmith shop. Dan
is arrested, hut escapes from prison,
just at the same time as the real
maker uf the pikes confesses on his
death-bed to the conspiracy. Dan
returns to his forge and shoes the
horse which saves his sweetheart's
home hv winning a creat race. Hv
means of earner pigeons \'ora is informed of the result ol the heats
as the race is run and tbe play ends
prettilv and happily. The good
Irish songs introduced by Dan are
pleasing features to the performance.

I THE ADVANTAGES OF IRRIGATION |
OPINION OK A C1VI1, ENGINEER
WHO HAS OIVEN THE SUBJECT MUCH STUDY.
Fur sumc tlmo tbe wain canal ot
the irrigation system intended to irrigate the subdivisions of lot Jill-,
just south oi Lbe town, bas been
slowly but surely progressing, lt is
now practically linished, with tbe
exception ot Lbe upper antl lower connections ot Lbe Hume, which can only
be conveniently made alter the frost
is our ol the ground. Tbe owners
tnteud eventually to put in laterals
lo convey this water to cacb suit-
division as these arc required. A
general scheme for these has been decided upon aud some at least wtll be
iu working order this coming spring.
Thc intake is at Lhe itoliiitsuu-
.McKeazie mill dam, aud from this
point the water is carried by a tluuie
which has been In course of construction for .several months, for a distance of IVtiu feet through lbe small
canyon iu St. Joseph's creek Lo
where il connects with lbe earth
dlLcb on lhu bench above. The lirsl
four hundred feet ts on tlie cast side
and eleven feel are on lhu west
side, Mie ravine being crossed on a
trestle lllll feet long and almost _f>
feel above ibe creek, Tbo louuilu-
lioit of the Hume consists of bents of
short, round limbers, peeled and placed ai intervals of twelve feel, the
posts of which rest tut substantial
blocks lirmly bedded. Along the top
ol these bents extend uvo lines of
siriugcrs, each twenty-lour feet long,
aud faced on the top. Hosting on
these at intervals of every lour feel
are Lbe yokes lo which is nailid ihe
Ilunie lining or box. The bottom oi
tills consists of four six-inch plunks,
two inches thick with slip tongue
joints entirely preventing loakagc,
lbe sides made of li inch boards.
Provision is made for adding to the
dcpili of the lltiine by another tior of
li inch boards, if it is desired at any
time itt tbe future to increase ils
capacity. The grade is 3-ltitbs of a
tool in otic hundred feel and thc estimated carrying capacity as now
constructed is six cubic feet per inch,
or 214 miners inches. The additional six inch board would iucrcasc
ibis to aboul ttlu miners inches. This
would be convenient iu case it
should be desired to bring other
lands under tbe ditch in the future.
One thousand acres could be irrigated in this way. All trees above the
line of the Hume whose full migbi
threaten tho safety of the structure,
bave been removed and the toolings
of some of the bents have been protected against landslides by crib-
work. Provision will also be made
for escapes.
The earth ditch, which has a grade
of one-tenth of a fool in IIIU feet,
extends from the cud of the Iluino for
a distance of about three-quarters of
u mile before lot 31112 is reached
und front tbis point through tbe
property is nearly a mile in length.
Tlic carrying capacity ol this ditch
as constructed is about six cubic
feet per section. Thc velocity will
be stow, about one and one-third feet
per section. Though a velocity oi
two anil throe-quarters leet per section would have been quite safe in
tbis soil, which is of a compact and
Impervious character, this would have
requited a grade greater than advisable, iu order to get as much
ground as possible under the canal,
The speed will be advantageous,
however, in warming the water, and
in view of these facts and the additional reason that two reservoirs lie
above the intake, it is expected that
there will be no danger of tlie chilling ciTect on vegetation, which sometimes arises from thc application ol
cold spring water.
lt is the intention to construct
laterals from this ditch to serve each
subdivision of Ave acres as required.
Some of these will be put in this
outing summer. Owing to tbe sloping nature of the ground and the
rectangular system of subdivision,
small wooden boxes or Humes will be
pul in to lead the water down along
the lot lines without causing erosion.
The upper ends ol each ol these laterals, eight in number, will have a
headgatc box set in the bank of thc
canal with measuring weir and headgatc tor regulating the How. Along
the line ot each ot these laterals
and at the upper end ot each suit-
division will be placed a measuring
box, with a little gate lor giving
tbe individual irrigator his proportional quantity of water. In this
way no water will be wasted, each
mail will get his proper supply and
erosion will be prevented.
Thc method of applying thc water
to the land will naturally be what is
known as the furrow method, whicli
is most used for orchards and car-
dens. Deep furrows arc ploughed
between the trees or rows of vegetables ou such a grade as will conduct tbe waler without washing the
soil. Tbe waler is turned into the
upper end ot say hall a dozen or
more nt a time. The grade is such
Ihat tbe water moves slowly along
percolating downwards, and laterally
into thc ground as it proceeds, and
by the time it reaches the end ol the
furrow, tbe ground bus boon suili-
elcntly dn- it is cultivated, leaving a
tin loose top soil, which prevents
evaporation from beneath.
The How nf water into the lurrnws
is hest obtained by wooden boxes
funning across their beads, In whicli
nre bored holes nt intervals, corresponding lo the width ot the fur
rows, and which can lie opened or
plugged as required. These boxes
when laid down a slope should be
either stopped or have riffles in the
bottom li> prevent too rapid it velocity and ensure delivery of water
thioitrcli tlie boles. For extensive cultivation on a small patch of ground
the expense of such arrangements is
comparatively small and the efficiency obtained pays many times fnr the
extra trouble.
The nearness to town and the increasing interest in the subject of
irrigation for this vallev. wilt no
doubt lead a great manv to visit
this system during the coming season.

Why Does
THE HERALD'S
Business Grow ?
t
^ HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But thc answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if passible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equipped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, the
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us. We can please you.

Two ulher discrepancies, one of li\

that tbo funds would be properly

LIKE A THIEF AT NIGHT
THE CREAM SEPARATOR
THAT CANT SKIM CLEAN
Dairy authorities the world overAgree
thai tlie centrifugal separator it* in-
dicpfiicalde to the man who owns milk
eown. And why'.' -Simply becaim* it
waved hi* cream, hence his money. The
more cream caved, the more money,
linn'!- sure, Hut unfortunately, many
(-separator!* do not pave all the cream.
Am) worn* still the higgeftt of claim a
are made for (bent* machines. Such
separator* nte like a thief at. night or
the pickpocket who with an innocent
face rubs onr elbow ami then rohe us of
our wallet. Became of inferior and out*
of--late howl const nici ion, these sepflrn-
tora- unknown to the users of ihem,
daily lose a hig percentage of the
cream.
It if easy to be deceived inlo buy ing a "pickpocket'' (separator,
but it is just as eapy to avoid buying one if we will but take the
advice of those whom we know are eiperieueed separator
judges. IW)_ percent, of nil expert croauicrv-men, Puller manufacturers and real separator authorities living to-day use RK
LAVAL separators exclusively, for they have learned by experience thnt the DK LAVAL Is the only separator that uill save
all the cream all the time under all conditions. And tlio reason
for this fact is plain. It is found iu the improved patent protected DK LAVAL "A'pha-Dise" separating Utwl. It is different from anv other Wwl and its peculiar construction is the
secret of DE LAVAL clean skimming. Ask forour illustrated
catalog which explains the DK LAVAL bowl in detail as well
as many other interesting features.
