It would he a nice compliment, and
one well deserved, to return tbe present council just us it stands, at tho
January election. No council has
done mote for tile bet torment of the
city than tho one now in power and
it is to be hoped that tho same
Aggregation of businesslike men will
he returned to office in January.
A very few years a-a people laugh-
>ii at William Hamilton and others,
Aim were trying to demonstrate the
pi nihilities ol this district as a fruit
griming section. "He laughs best
who laughs last," and today William
Hamilton and the others who tried it,
havo ihe laugh on them all. It has
been demonstrated, beyond f) shadow
nt .1 douW that this section is
imfnently adapted to the growing of
ill tin* hardier fruits. Hotter apples
than atv grown by Hamilton and nt
In- St. Eugene mission never were
shipped Into t-he country. If tto.y

using flu* same amount of common
sense. The. remark has liei-n heard
flint Hamilton's ranch is- a favored
spot It. is nothing of lhe kind, in
fact it- bus some disadvantages which
other places have not. It slopes to
the east, which, as every horticulturist knows, in a cold country, is a
very trying aspect. Hut even at
ibis Mr. Hamilton has made an unqualified success of fruit growing.
There is absolutely no room left for
tin- knockers, East Kootenay is a
fruit country and In a very short
time will be ono ol lhe very greatest
fruit illstriols in the province,

NOTE: The average clroulablon of
the Herald fur the p.ist the months
bus heen 8,817 tier month, which
.shows a substantial increase. It is
only fair to the advertisers, however,
io sav that this material increase ot
the average was due to nn increased
number of papers issued during the
month of October and distributed almost entirely in a systematic manner
Ihrough the territory tributary to
• 'ranbrook.
It is not too early to think about
the municipal elections. It is no
use waiting till ihe last minute and
it is well to know what action is going to lie taken in this, one ot the
most important propositions that
come up before Ine oltl/em in the
course ol the year. The Herald Is of
opinion that the Council thai has had
the reins of office during 1908 has
been an eminently satisfactory
council for   the citizens aad     would
Was there over such a delightful
lull in any country.
Tiie fuel that Karl tlroy has
bought the Santo ranch, at lhe south
end of Columbia lake, will no doubt
do much to advertise this justly
beautiful section of East Kootenay.
\s one, man, who has lived all over
l-lie world, said today: "1 believe that
there is not a more beautiful spot
on earth than Ihe Windermere country." And he spoke the truth.
There is everything there for thc
visitor. What mole cun any one ask
tor 1 tian hot springs, and there are
two ol them, one at Sinclair Creek
nnd   t'he   other   at   Pair mount, two
kes twenty miles long each, on
which boating in all its various
forms from the row boat to tbe
racing guKoliuc launch mav be indulged iu, mountains timt, surrounding the country, giving opportunities
for all sorts of alpine adventures and
are a lure for the sportsmen in
search of hig game. Mountain
sheep, wild goats, deer and bear are
there to be found in their native and
mihiintcd state. To those who eare
lot a less strenuous form of sport
wild duck, and grouse are there in
abundance. I Jut this is not the
mam point. The country is one of
Hie very best fruit districts in North
Western America and there is no
doubt but that Karl Grey had this
in view when he purchased property
in this district. When the Kootenay
Central railway passes down the
valley, which it'will do in the very
near future, the Windermere district
will be one of the, most valuable assets that the province will have. No
more ireautiful valley exists, even in
this province of beautiful valleys,
aud it is a sign of the times that the
governor-general has seen lit to purchase laud there. Karl Orey is a
man who has seen all there is to be
seen in the world in the way of
beauty spots and the fact ol his
having decided upon an estate in Kast
kootenay is evidence of the fact tbat
Kast Kootenay is exactly what the
Herald has always said it was:
"The banner spot of the banner province of the Dominion."
Kdmotiton Saturday News: Ctaarles
W. Morse, who has been given a fifteen year term in New York for
falsifying the books of a bank of
which lie was a director and using the
funds for private speculation, was a
little over a vear ago rated as worth
about S22,00ff,000. Morse's case is
an extreme illustration of a very prevalent human weakness. When a man
has enough money to satisfy all reasonable ideas of comfort and happiness, why does he risk his whole future for tiie sake of making an addition to his fortune which can be of
little real value to him? It looks
like evidence of a disordered mind.
Hut is it after all more than a case
of a habit getting so strong a grip
that it cannot he shaken oil?
Anywhere from eight to ten years
ago we used fo hear the remark that
Cranbrook would never grow any
more than It was ut tbat time. Time
has shown how utterly insane this
remark was. Day by day, month by
month, year by year, the town of
Cranbrook bus grown. First from a
canvas village to a town, nnd now to
one of the best appointed little cities
in Canada- Water works and electric light, telephones and other modern conveniences are In be found here
rlolng business just the same as in
lilies' three times the size. Kven at
that, tbe city is still growiug, and
grafting in the right way—growing
In lie ,1 eity of homes, where the
citizens take a pride, not only In
their own premises, but in the city
nl largo. After all this is the only
way to build up a city or any com-
mimitv. Public spirit is, after all,
the key note of all upbuilding of
towns ' iimi cities, is demonstrated
onlv hy thc people
pulling together, Cranhrook people
have alwavs, from the earliest, days,
done their'best to pull together for
the advancement of the town. Political ami other differences have never
made any difference to the people of
this city when tbe city's interest was
at stake and the result is seen in
its growth and permanency.
Toronto World: Mr. Byron 12. Walker's address at the MWh annual ban-
(jticl of the chamber of commerce of
the Slate of New York was thc leading feature of a notable occasion.
One hundred and    forty years is    a
cry respectable antiquity for a new
] world institution    and antedates the ;
' rise of the republic with which it has
grown to its    present superior posl-
[sion, representing as it does the business interests of the commercial
metropolis of the United States.
Willi 1h.1t before him Mr. Walker
conhi not have found a better opportunity to dilate upon bis favorite
theme, fur as his iriends and fellow
citizens know, though in the best
sense cosmopolitan, both by training
and sympathy, be is all the more an
attached and patriotic Canadian. No
me could be more ii tl y qualified to
speak of tbe industrial future of his
country and to interject some quiet
home truths making tor the edification of his auditors, for the betterment of trade relations between the
■reat nation ol North America thai
Imh already arrived and the other
great notion that is coming into its
own and fot the furtherance of a
tion, representing as it does the business. The interesting historical sural earlier Canadian history witli
which Mi. Walter prefaced iris main
topic was necessary because the origins ot the Canadian people and tbe
manner in which they have been united into one broad stream of national
life is essential as the basis for a
reasonable anticipation of what the
future holds in store tor the Domin-
Not this alone, but it discloses tlic novelty and difficulty of
lhe problems presented by the special
time, position and circumstances in
which Canadians found themselves, lu
externals these problems were similar
to thoso met; by the United States
iluring the closing years oi thu eigh-
k'cnih and the lirst quarter of the
nineteenth century, but in the case of
the republic they came singly and by
decrees, while in Canada they sprang
into being simultaneously and with
the added intricacy given them by the
march of modern education, discovery
and Invention. So that, as Mr.
Walker truly pointed out, what a
population of seven ot eight million
people have done ior a Dominion
equal in extent to the United States
is far more 1han proportionally comparable with the responsibilities that
have ever been discharged hy the
citizens ut thc republic As a result of the work that- has been
achieved Canadians stand today with
a clear consciousness of the task imposed upon them and a greater determination than ever lo remain .in
independent, self-governing nation
acting in alliance aud cooperation
with the other states of the British
Umpire. No other world empire 01
consideration oilers this combination
uf individual freedom and voluntary
association for common objects, and
it holds many peculiar advantages for
nations in the making. It gives a
wider outloo-k, prevents that restricted and self-centred interest
which leads to provincialism and
shares in that unity ol spirit and
bond of peace whloh belongs to a
genuine brotherhood of nations. Canada is ambitious to light her own
tiatttes und is steadily lacing aud resolving the questions that emerge.
•She is no longer a suppliant for fiscal
favors and Mr. Walker properly warned the New York Chamber of Commerce that the present unequal system of exchange ijetwecn the Dominion and the United States euuld not
remain, and that trade would be preferably sought with nations offering
fairer terms. With vast resources,
of which only a small fraction is now
utilized, with a virile and contented
population with political institutions
democratic in spirit and suited t-o thu
progressive temper of the nation,
Canada is content to await, thc
natural evolution of the empire in
which she shares.

There was a romantic fuding tn n
wounding charge nt Nottingliam to*
ii'hlly A young miner, I lurry Par-
raiiioie, was ohnnrod with nWeokttig
bis sweetheart. One night after the
gul had rotlrwl to bed, B|io was
awakened bv the prisoner, who had
broken (he window, and climbed into

box she refused to sav anything
iigainst the prisoner, and declared she
wa.s still willing to marry him. Tlio
magistrates convicted the prisoner of
assault, but agreed if he married the
girl within a month not to inflict
uuiiislnncnt. Prisoner and thc girl
left the- court arm in arm.
The opening of the King Edward
\ ll. Secondary school at Lytham,
Lancashire, marks the latest phase in
the development of the Lytham
charities, which have a romantic history. Two centuries -- £5 was he-
uueathed for the education of the
poor   children   of Lytham.   The fund
'grew to nearly £500, which the
trustees invested in land which now
forms the center of Blackpool. The
corporation of Blackpool has paid
nearly £100,000 for the freehold
rkhts of small sections      of      the
Charities estate, nnd it is confidently
asserted that the Charities ultimately
i will bo worth £500,000.
| .lohn Courtney, a laborer, charged
with drunkenness at Orimsbv recently, appeared with his arm in
sidints. lie said the police broke it
after he was locked up because he declined to surrender his rosary.     The
jnolice stated that the man violently
resisted searching, and his arm snap-
Nt'il when being held through a window.     The stipendiary  was satisfied
j thero had been no malpractice, and in
'dismissing the charge suggested that
I toman Catholics should not be asked
to surrender thc rosary.
' The striking declaration of Kricd-
rich Nietzehe, the Herman philosopher
that "Wagner is bad for youth*; he is
fatal ti) women," was referred to by
Sir C. C. Wakefield. ea-Sherill of London, when taking part in the prize-
givlng at Penrhos College tor Girls.
Coiwvn Bay. He advised the pupils
to be careful as to   what music thev
j played,     There was very little doubt
.that the works of some of even tlic
greatest composers exercised a poisonous influence over pupils of a cer-
. tain temperament.
| The funeral took place at Kings-
cliOe, Northamptonshire, recently, of
n woman named Eliza Coles, whose
husband was buried the previous dav.
! At the first stroke ot the church bell
for ber husband's funeral, Mrs. Coles
fell senseless and died without     re-
i gaining consciousness.
I One of those amazing feats which
made the more daring and scientific
! members of thc medical profession the
: wonder of the world has just been
successfully accomplished. Mrs. Anna Bradley, who was *, patient in a
Dundee, Scotland, hospital for several
months, has just left the institution
completely cured of her malady. Mis.
Bradley was taken to the hospital to
have an operation performed for the
removal of a tumor. After a week
the doctors told Mr. Bradlev that
liis wile had hut a short time to live,
that her heart Was weak and her
blood too poor tti permit of an
operation, and that the only chance
to save her life lay in the transfusion
ol blood. Bradley at once rolled up
his sleeve, and, having his arm. said.
"The little woman won't die if my
blood will save her. Here, take
every drop of mine if you need It."
Subsequently after the last riles
uf the Catholic churrh had becn administered to both, the operation was
performed. An Incision was made in
Bradley's wrist; nn artery was opened ami a small lube insertod. In the
meantime a vein in thi* wife's leg
bat) been opened, and the other end
ol the tube pierced it. Kor over an
hour the blood from the mnn's
veins was allowed to flow into his
wife's uy stem, giving her now Uh-
with overs heartbeat, until almost a
quart of Bradlov'fl blood had heen
transfused into his wife's veins. A
d.iv later Mr. Bradley left the hospital, apparently none the worse fot
ihe experience. A month later the
oiieintion for the removal of tbe tu-
iinu was performed, and this was also,
successful. Mrs.    Bradlev  stendilv j
Improved, and mew stronger- The!
oilier dav tbe hospital physicians
told her   she   could leave tbe institu-
,  —
I "Itespeetable widow would like to
meet widower, forty-three to forty-
sis, total abstainer, with a view to
matrimony." Such was the advertisement inserted in n Glasgow paper
some little time ago. hv Mrs. Spiers,
a widower, with two grown up
daughters, Among the replies was
one from -lohn Maxwell, who said he
was a bachelor earning £5 n week,
and had lots of money in foreign
lands, hut it. was so tied up that he
could not touch it. A day was fixed
for the marriage, and he gave her a
photograph of himself on the hock of
which he wrole: "With lovo and best
wishes, from .lohn Maxwell." Soon
after this John borrowed £10 from
the widow, it being understood that
this was to eo towards the expenses
of thc wedding. He kept putting oil
thc date of marriage, however, until
the widow got suspicious and accused
him of not intending tn marry ber.
Finally she learned that he was a
married man Hvln« apart from his
wife. For tbls and other charges ot
obtaining   money by falsa pretences,
Death has beaten law In its long
and stern chase for the possession of
Mr. -Mm it. Richards, a solicitor
who dlsnppearotl from Swansea, Snutb
Wales, last l-Vlnnarv. and Who had
I ten "wanted" on charges of fraud,

inattd Ihat tlii> total amount ob-tain-
i il by him hy fraudulent means reached £100,000. When the lirst warrant for his arrest was applied for he
bad obtained a good start, being hi
Cb'eago. Kor months he wandered
through Canada, the I'nited States,
Mexico, South America, Portugal,
Spain and France. Then, regaining
England, he went to Hove to his
wife and family, who had removed
there after he left Swansea. To
ihem he returned broken down. The
police ascertained his whereabouts,
hut the doctor in attendance on him
declared that he was in a most dan-
gei'OUs stale from dropsy and cancer
of the liver, and that to arrest him I

Hove detectives watched the bouse

Tha greatest secrecy surrounds the
destination of two little Marylcbone
foundlings who have iust been adopted

-rentlemon. A lady member of the,
Mnrylebono Workhouse committee visited the future home of the foundlings, and returned with a report of
its magnificence. In one wing of
the mansion n nursery bad been insulin! replete with everything which,

The police authorities In Great Britain have at last decided to follow
in some degree the custom of tbe
continent and recognize bloodhounds
as a Permanent oweni In the detection
of crime. Major Richardson, who has
for years been breeding—wholly with
i vi,-w to perfection of scent—eross-
hred bloodhounds, recently, received a
form.il notice ihat his dogs are to
be retnlne-H hy the Hertfordshire poire Major Richardson will keep
the dogs and train them, but they
will be --ent for by the Hertfordshire
authorities on tbe occurrence of any
crime in the detection rf which tht y
may he useful. \ considerable mini-
ber of the other county authorities
are discussing the employment of
dti-rs: and the idea bis particularly
appealed to tbo**e in Scotland. It is
nrobnhle that in a short time this
special breed of dog—whose heredity
is as yet a secret—will he generally

Mr. Kennt'iiev Rumford, who fulfilled
a lorar-stflnding promise one Sunday,
recently, In singing solos and a duet
al the afternoon service in the chapel
ot Rrlxton fall, before "00 prisoners,
gave the following impressions of her
[experience In the jail: "1 was very
much affected by lhe idea of singing
lo tho^e poor men: not exactly nervous, hut it was quite pathetic to
see how the nice ones seemed sad and
ashamed la tool. up. The chaplain
asked us to sing two vcars ago, but
we could not arrange it before. He
told ns he had found the influence of
sacred music of tlio greatest value as
a means of reformation. I think thc
men II ed 'Abide With Mo' best. They
esneclallj asked Ihat 1 should sing
thu hymn. They were almost pain-
fully quiet and attentive throughout;
il was like singing In the blind, they
seemed to listen so eagerly."

Another point of great significance
which would seem to bear out the
authenticity of this story may be
found iu the statement of Patrick
Welch-, the eminent railroad contractor, ol Spokane. Readers of the
Frank Caper will recall the interview with Mr. Welch published in last
week's issue, Mr. Welch is n member of the linn uf Foley, Welch *
Stewart, Contractors who have built
n u,ival ileal ut rood for lho Great
Northern and who are very elose to
Hn* heads of the lliii concern. lu
his interview Mr. Welch, it will he
ii called, said: *'I expect to sec
through trains from St. Paul running
lo Vancouver, over lho Victoria, Vancouver &   Eastern    road before the
cud of 10011."
In view of tho foregoing statement
of Ibe intentions of the Great North-
tin this statement by Mr. Welch is
pregnant with significance. Probably
no man not directly connected with
ilie (Jreat Northern enjoys more of
ilie confidence of the Mills than
Mr, Welch and without a doubt he
spoke liy thc card und hud in mind
the programme to build the connect-
ing line between the southeastern
British Columbia branch aud thc
line at Comls when he made thc
statement. Witb the V., V. <fc E.
Hearing completion and a year to
build tbo proposed connection bis
prediction would be easy of realiza-
t inn.

Had walls mouths as Well as ears,
the rotting timbers of many a shack
lost in the overgrown clearings which
speak dumbly uf some premature
and abortive effort to make n home
stead in the wilderness would tell
strange stories—stories of privations
borne with fortitude, ol sickness endured out of reach of mortal aid, of
death in flic ghastly silence oi tiie
cabin ten miles from anywhere, says
the Vancouver World. A skeleton
found in a hunk, the dim pages of a
diary lying on a rough table, the
other signs that woodsmen know,
these years afterwards may bring to
light the Ihiro facts of the lonely
light against ill-health ending in defeat, and imagination may re-produce
the sightless eyes staring at the
roof, the invasion ot tiie shy little
denizens of the bush no longer afraid
of the tenant now so quiet, thc
gradual obliteration of the marks of
human occupation, and tlic silent reclaiming by the forest of its own.
Sometimes there is more than one
actor iu these tragedies, of the frontiers of civilization, In the case of
Haines of the Nans there was a little
boy. Haines, so wc learn in the

Mr. Henry recently supplied thc full

shipment was over four tons, probably the largest shipment ever sent
to a single purchaser in British Columbia. This is only another Instance of (he phenomenal development
of this great industry.

expected will bo completed by the end
of the mouth, when the present shipments will be doubled and gradually
increased from then on, as tbe mine

that it will bo into the scam iu

will be utilized as the main source

VALUE OF FRUIT LANDS.
Thc editor ol the Fruit Grower,
published at St. Joseph, Mo., has
just returned Irom a trip through
the northwestern orchards, and in his
write-up hat tbit to lay ol tbe
value ol Iruit lands:
"Raw land, with water right, can
be bought lor trom S1S0 to 1500 per
acre, Improved land costs Irom
>500 to I7IH) per acre, and bear-orchards Irom 11,000 to 11,500 per
acre—and many are not lor sale at
any price.
"These prices may teem high, but
they are not prices on a boom
basis. As a rule, only one who appreciates the possibility ol Iruit culture will pay these prices, and when
it comes to tbe top-notch sales,
they are usually made to persons living In the community, who are acquainted with the land and its possibilities.

Heretofore, our principal industries being
Lumbering and Mining, it is only recently that
the iruit growing possibilities cf this district
have become generally known.
We unquestionably have the soil, and I
contend, a suecior climate; and alter spending
a month last summer in the Spokane district,
I came back fully convinced that Cranbrook
was good enough (or me, and as an earnest of
my faith, I at once began the erection of a
house on my tract, and am now living on the
land.
I own and control over 1000 jcres of selected
fruit lands, and avail myself of this opportunity
of offering them for sale.
So jealous are some other B. C. fruit districts
that they try to discourage intending investors
here. Well, it does not enhance the relative
value of their lands, nor does it make our soil any
the less productive. Thank fortune, we have
no "knockers" here,they don't thrive inCran-
brook. Everybody will welcome you, not excepting "Old Man Simpson" of "The
Herald" and our ideal Mayor, Jake Fink.
All I ask is a visit to convince you that this
district is ideal for fruit growing, and as a place
of residence, but because I pay for this advertis-
m*nt don't feel under any obligation to me for
directing your atten'ion this w* v. When you
get off the train, call on Mr. V. Hyde Baker,
Metsrs. Arnold & Roberts, B-a'e and Elwell,
or Ths Frost Investment Co., and I can assure
yvi that t'ney will offer you nothing but Gilt
EJje Tracts. In fact, that is all we have hereof course, I will also be glad to see you,
whether you wish to purchase or not, and if
yoj canmt spare the time to come, I will cheerfully answer all correspondence, regarding not

casting aside <>f plans that led t<
very remarkable discoveries and in
ventions. When Columbus laid 1
plan to discover the new wnrld, he
could not get a hearing till he
plied to a woman tor help. Woman
equips man for the voyage of Hie.
She is seldom a leader in any project,
but meets her peculiar and best altitudes as a helper. Though man executes a project, !,h« fits him for it,
beginning m his childhood. A man
discovered America, hut ,t, woman
equipped the voyage, so everywhere,
man executes the perform;. ne*»,     but
. woni'in trains the man.
I UH!U)REK.
I Woe tu him that smiles nut over n
cradle, nr weeps over a tomb. He
who has never tried the companionship uf a lit Mr child, has carelessly
passed by one of the greatest pleasures uf life, as one passes a rare
(lower without plucking it or know,
ing its value. And by you whose
hoim* are blessed with the little
prattlers, have patience ami enjoy
itheiu while yuu may. They will
nol trouble you lung. Children grow
up—nothing on earth grows so fast
as children. It was but yesterday,
■and that lad was playing with top's,
I a buoyant boy. He is a man and
- gone now. There is no more childhood loi him nor for us. l.ifo lias
■ claimed him. When a beginning is
1 made, it is like n raveling stocking.
stitch by stitch gives way until all
are gone. The house has not a child
in it—there is no more noise in the
hall—hoys rush in pell-mell; it is very
orderly now. There are no more
skates or sleds, bats, balls or strings
left scattered around, things are neat
now. There is no delay now for;
sleepy folks; there is no longer any
task before von lie down, or looking
after anybody and tucking in tho bed-1
clothes. Oh! tor some children's!
noise! We wish uur neighbor would
lend us an urchin or two to make a
little noise in these premises. A 1
home without children is like a i
garden and no (lowers. We want to
he tired, to bo vexed, to be run over,
to hear children at work with all its ;
varieties.
TIIE CHRISTIAN MOTHER.
Now, suppose Christ should come
into your house. First the wife and
the mother would feel His presence.
Religion almost always begins there.
H is easier for women to become
Christians than for us men. They
do not tight so against Owl. II
women tempted man originally away
from holiness, now she tempts him
back. She may not make any fuss
about it, but somehow everybody in
the house knows that there is a
cliange iu the wife and mother. She
chides tho children more gently. Her
face lights up sometimes with an un-
earthlv <rIow. She goes into some
unoccupied room (or n little while,
and thc husband goes not after her
nor asks her why site was there.
J 1c knows without asking that she
has been praying. The husband notices that her face is brighter than
on the days when years ago. they
stood on the marriage altar, and he
knows that .Jesus has been putting
upon her brow a wreath sweeter than
the orange blossoms. She puts the
children to bed, not satisfied with the
formal prayer that they once offered,
but she linnets now and tells them
of Jesus who blessed little children
and of the good place they all hope
to be at last. And then she kisses
them good night with something that
the child feels to be a heavenly benediction—a something that shall hold
on the boy after he has become a
man of forty or fifty years ol age,
for there is something in a good,
loving, christian mother's kiss tbat
fifty years cannot wipe off the cheek.
When one is inclined to worry, the
rcmarle of an old lady should be recalled: "Yes, dearies; I've had an
awful heap ol trouble in my time,
aud most of it never happened."
MEN OF COURAGE WANTED.
More men of courage. Surely that
is what the world needs to make it
better.
Not the courage to fight and die
on the field of battle, but to live
one's daily work when there is much
to depress; to keep on in thc struggle
when failure attends the (outsteps,
to stand at the post ol duty when it
is nn obscure one and no voice of kind
mod, provod highly satisfactory, owl

We always feel sorry for the young

We are now engaged in trying to

It will not suffice for men to open

The man who thinks he is getting

We neod men with courage to

the truth at the counter, even if

utters a profane word in a public
place; to speak on thc unpopular side
of a question; and to vote, from deep
conviction, with a small majority. We
need men with courage to refuse to
sign a petition of an unworthy applicant for ollice, and courage to do
anything which makes a majority to
exclaim, "He is very eccentric"
Some men will fact! the bayonet sooner than a lough, and cares less for a
blow than a word of contempt. It
sad to think how many have heen

habits by the fear ol their comrades

scruples. Oh, for the courage to say
"No," when sinners entice, and to
say "Yes," when saints exhort.
