IMPRESSIONS OF CRANBROOK AND
EAST KOOTENAY [
The following article is written by
Miss   Evelyn    Greene,   ol  Spoknno. I
writer foe    Kumlay. newspapers   nml
magazines, who i.s  tho guest ol Mrs.
V. E. Simpson:
My impressions ol Oranbrook, Mr.
Simpson? Well, I hail impressions
limn before I saw Oranbrook.
It was in 1004, I think, when 1
was living in Sioux city, lown, that,
1 received yonr hig edition ol the
l let uhl describing Oranbrook ami the
Kast Kootonay ton!tory. 1 remember well Inking a great interest iu
every article written, ami looking
run-fully al tho eats ol men und
scenery.
1 wus not expecting to COino west.
then, nml I thought my (fiends, ihe
Simpsons, luui surely gone to tho
jumping of! plaee of tla' worhl, lint I
looked at those pictures of men, scenery and property again ami again,
wondering how men ol such intelligence us the photographs ol these
men seemed lo indicate, could locate
iu such a territory—where was the
charm, and where was the money?
Tlie interesting descriptive articles
on mining, lumber and agriculture
showed where the latter was, and tho
cuts of the scenery about here showed
tne the reason for the former.
I had never seen sueh a country as
was there -depicted, and it was intensely interesting to me. I was
horn and raised on the prairies, Hat
as Hat could be, with only the blue
outlines o! a lew hills in the distance
to break the monotony.
Coining west to Spokane two years
ngo prepared mc somewhat tor what
1 might see in Cranbrook as to scenery, and when I stepped of! the train
that so luxuriously carried me hero a
lew days ago, 1 had in mind the picture of Cranbrook as given in the
HeraM five years ago or more. I had
in mind a town ol about 1200 inhabitants—and 1 tound 3500. 1 had in
mind a few stores and a few pretty
homes set down among rugged mountains. I found many up-to-date stores
carrying immense stocks ol first-class
merchandise, many large hotels with
city conveniences, churches, an auditorium, and hundreds and hundreds ol
large comfortable homes, fitted with
water and electric lights and with
well kept lawns—"but pity 'tis, 'tis
true," you keep your lawns
beautifully dressed, but you let your
parking outside the yard go ragged.
Is this a criticism? Hardly; for, on
account of thc rugged setting of the
town, with its mountains all about
and its many ragged pine trees, it is
not wholly unbeautlful, but plays well
into the hands of rough nature,
which, taken as a whole, is oltcn
more charming to the eye.
Your resources? What could they
be? How could such a town be kept
up in sueh a manner unless it bed a
family of from four to ten on every
quarter section of land for miles
around it? But here are thc stores,
and none looking as though they were
going defunct. Here are the goods,
large, clean, up-to-date stocks. Something must be doing, somewhere—but
where?
Ah! I see your mountains and vour
plains round'about—gold, silver, lead,
iron, lumber, agriculture, Iruit.
Everybody has plenty—everybody
spends lavishly.
I took a trip to Wasa a few days
ago. What did I see there? One
store and one hotel. The store lull
of everything imaginable from a collar button to dynamite, from a
prospector's whirl to his camping out-*,
fit. The hotel was filled with people,,
some arriving iu automobiles, some
In carriages and some horseback, all
classes ol people from the Attorney
Qcncral ol Alberta to the lumher
jack of Easi Kootenay—and city accommodations lor all. A beautiful,
rest-inspiring placo, situated between
lhe Sclktrks and the Rocky Mountains, a place to lisb, to hunt. to
loam; a hotel twenty-five miles from
nowhere io give comfort lo the weary
and dusty traveler—hot and Ootd water, plcctrlo lights, comfortable beds,
IiiiiI spring ehii'keu ami good hot
coffee served in a beautiful cool white
dining loom. The same question
came to mc: Who and what keeps up
lliis establishment? What wonder
tlte man hunting game, the man hunting rest, the lumher Jack wanting
companionship ami comfort, tho pro-*-
(lector want inn provisions, and any
traveler who is within twenty miles
of "Hanson's Placo" at night-fall
make Wasa on their way to their
destination,
I look again to tho mountains—
Gold, silver, lead, iron, lumber, agriculture, fruil—this retrain heals upon
my brain. What more resources can
a country have''
The (iient West is calling men and
women from tbeir staid homos in the
easi—men are afraid lo venture, llts-
torj has told nl the hardships of the
Western country, and with a shudder ai the hardships ol pioneer life
1l»e history reader of the easi lays
ilown liis hook and turns away—be
fails to grasp ihe opportunities of
Hits golden country—ho fails to understand. A few of the most progressive come out—in ten years they
ean go back ami buy out every friend
they have who has remained hack
thoto. The most of them make good
who come.
There is such a vast country here-
such heights and depths of wonderful
opportunity beckoning the young man
of thc east that it is sad indeed to
see that both capital and labor refuse to come. This country needs
both; thc man with thc money, and
the farmer, the fruit man, tho lumber
man ami the miner—but many aro
afraid of thc vastness—and fail to
come.
Those who have come will never go
back, the charm of the country has
Invaded their souls, and they look
with pity upon the thousands ol
young men and women turned Irom
thc high schools and colleges o! the
east back into father's homo and
business, or father's friend's home
and business, and filling thc large
cities too tight for comfort.
This town and country is a marvel. My mind is not largo enough
to grasp what all this means, or will
mean In tho future, but ttie vision I
have ls the vision ol tfa| forty-niner
in tlte gold fields of California—Gold,
silver, lead, iron, lumber, agriculture,
; fruit.
|    'Positively, what more does a coun.
try want—what more could it have?
Hut people will come, ami see,   and
slav.    The future is bright.

THE BIG CRESTON CELEBRATION
Crcston, the most advertised town
in  the Interior ol   Hritish Columbia,
will celebrate Labor Day in a manlier lhat, will redound in its credit.
Three years ago Croston was a village oi shacks, ami lis Inhabitants
weie mote ahuudutil iu hope than iu
commercial collateral, hut loday -1 is
a thriving burg that all men who
know the value ot laml speak iu the
highest leiius of, Croston has
"made good" iti the bidding for
acknowledgment in the "hull luml"
boom t>t British Columbia. H has
passed tlio severest test ol mortal
mau, and its wonderlul growth ol the
past year is directly attributable lo
results achieved hy the pioneer
ranchers. During the past year
Crcston {a truly euphonious name)
has mmle wonderful strides. Several
stores, with men ol good commercial
ability ami capital to back litem up,—
have beeu inaugurated. Four
chhrches, Methodist, Presbyterian.
Anglican and Catholic, have buildings tliat would be a credit to any
town of far greater aspiration than
Creston, hut imbued by the truly
Western spirit, the people of that
nourishing burg have followed along
the lines of a "tiling worth doing is
worth doing well."
ll will surprise many of our old-
timers who have not passed through
the Kootenay valley during the past
three years, when tlicy note the vast
area of laml cleared up and under
cultivation between Kitchener and
Sirdar. A few years ago, we remember, there was nothing hut
thickly timbered land, and now the
whole valley is studded with prosperous homes ami nourishing ranches.
Creston, the hub of this peculiarly
favored portion of the Kootenays,
will therefore hold a celebration on
Labor I>ay. Primarily because the
day is m most fitting one sentimentally—for has not Crcston achieved
results by labor that would lie well
for other so-called "fruit countries"
to emulate? And, secondly, because
this day is the hest suited for the
town of Creston lo celebrate.
It has lieen Crcston's custom to
celebrate on Dominion Day in previous years, but this has been found
extremely awkward for tlte ranchers—)
a powerful factor—for the very gooil
reason that the gathering of the
famous strawberry crop is in lull
swing at that time. Thousands of
crates of the luscious berry are
picked during the hoi month ol
July, ami to pick these an enormoui
amount ot labor is'enlailed. "."..<
scarcity of manual labor at this time
of the" year has brought home to
the ranchers the important lesson
tliat hay must be made and strawberries gathered while the sun shines
lt thus happened that Labor Day
(Sept. Oth) was decided upon this
year by the husiness men and ranchers of Creston as a most desirable
and litting day to hold a celebration.
It was a happy thought of the
Creston celebration committee to arrange a rock drilling contest tor the
miners of our sisier town ol Moyie.
We go further ami advise tbat the
miners and all other labor Institutions of Kasi and West Kootenay follow the crowd to this pretty
little town on Labor Day and parade
in their regalia to the sports
ground. ll would itv a sinking
sight, and at the same time a Striking lesson io all ol the excellent feeling now prevailing hetween labor and
capital in the whole of the Kootenays. Labor has cause to celebrate
this vear! Lot us all follow the
crowd and celebrate at Creston!
The celebration will be held on the
famous Koolcnav Plats, and a site
has been chosen a short distance
frnm town. Arrangements are nuw
Dclng made for a baseball championship game between the Moyie
and Cranbrook teams. Mobsis. (ieo.
Mead and J. J. A liter ton were in the
illy last Monday making arrangements with the Cranbrook bawl for
that day.

Mr. Tozer, who was given a farewell soeial on Monday night, left this
week to take up a college course, of
training at Brandon college, prior lc
his entering the ministry ol the Baptist church. Although the evening
was somewhat chilly there was a
large gathering of friends assembled
at the home of Rev. King to enjoy
a social evening, this being the last
time, probably, for some years, before tlie Baptist people of Cranbrook
would be honored again by Mr. and
Mrs. To/er's presence. The evening
was well spent and an enjoyable
time was indulged in. Tlie amusements and entertainments, though
hurriedly arranged, were of a first-
class order. Towards the close Rev,
King made a tew remarks upon, lhe
worth and sterling value to a minister to have such men as Mr. To/.er
around him when carrying on the
work of the church. The integrity
and zeal with which he put his whole
heart into the work was worthy ui
all praise.
Mr. Shepherd, superintendent ot the
Sunday School, spoke of him as a
co-worker and also as a friend, that
though we were all parting with Mr.
Tozer with regret it seemed that be
was leaving us to do a greater work,
to enter upon a greater held ol usefulness,so    our regrets were oulsbad-
wed with lhe joy of knowing the
goinl work upon which he was going
tu enter. As a friend be was all
one could wish—faithful and sincere.
As a co-worker—willing and ready.
The young people of thc church
presented Mr. Tozer with a beautiful
traveling hag, which it was thought
Would be useful to him, not only now
but in   his student days.
Rev, 1). E. Hat, Superintendent ut
Hume Missions of British Columhia,
who was staying with Rev. King for
a tew days, spoke a few words ot
counsel and help to thc departing
friend, as one who is entering upon a
line of work different in all respects
to his ordinary mechanical calling.
Mr. Tozer, who was greatly moved
by the many tokens of the high esteem In which he was held, spoke on
ichalf of his wife and himself thanking all for what they had done. Mr.
Tozer said it seemed to him in leaving Cranhrook just like leaving home,
as it was here he was converted anil

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
THE SHADOWS WE CAST.
I a this great world of sunshine and
shadows, we are constantly casting
shadows on those around us, and
receiving shadows from them in return. There is no pathway of life
which is not sometimes iu the shade,
and there is no one who walks over
these paths, it matters not which
way they tend, who does not, now
and then, cast his shadow witli the
rest. How often do wc, by a mere
thoughtless word or careless act,
cast a shadow on some heart
which is longing for sunshine? How
often does the husband, by a cold
greeting, cast a gloom over the
happy, trusting face ot his wife, whit may he, has waited anxiously
for the sound of his foot steps to
give him a joyous welcome to his
bome. How often has thc parent,
hy a harsh reproof, chilled tlie overllowing spring of confidence and love
which is bubbling up from the heart
of the innocent prattler at his knee?
I iow often are the bright rays ot
hope torn from thc clinging grasp of
the souls of those worn out by
poverty ami the never-ending conflict
of life, by the stinging ridicule or
the sordid advice of those whom the
world honors—aye, love to honor?
How often does the child—even after it has grown to the full bloom ol
manhood, and is clad in the garments of strength and beauty—bring
sorrow to the parent already tottering on tlie brink ot eternity? Then
beware, lest you cast a deeper
shmlow over those already darkening
in happiness! Thc shadows we cast
can we escape them? Can wc look
hack,     ns      wc walk   on in   life's
journey, and   see no shadowy  marks
about our foot-prints?
"EVERYBODY        WORKS      UUT
FATHER."
He always attracted attention as
lie marched up tlie main aisle ot the
church with bis sleek bat on his left
band, his hair faultlessly combed,
his face as .smooth as a billiard ball
and his clothes as faultlessly brushed
as though just from the tailor shop.
When services were concluded, ami
he wus passing iuto the Sunday
school room, au old lady asked him
for tlie health of bis wile, "Oh, she
is not very well." The fact was,
the poor woman had built the fires,
prepared breakfast, brushed bis
clothes, combed his hair, and was
left at home to wash the dishes, do
tbe housework ami prepare that
man's dinner, but "was not well."
lie was a conscientious man, that.
A DAUGHTER'S PART AT HOME.
One of tho sweetest things a girl
can do is to receive friends graciously, particularly at home. In one's
own house a cordial manner is
peculiarly fitting. I>o not stand ott
in the middle of the room and bow
coldly ami formally to the friend
who has called. Walk over to meet
Iter, give her your hand, and say
pleasantly that you are very glad to
see her again. Stilt, cold and formal ways ot greeting acquaintances
arc not proper in a girl welcoming
guests to her father's house. A
daughter's part is to assist her mollw
er on every social occasion. The girl
pours thc tea in her mother's drawing-room when friends drop in at
five o'clock. Quite often, when no
maid is present, she helps the guests
to sandwiches and cakes, which arc
served at a five o'clock tea, and herself hands the cups and takes tbem
from the guest who would like to be
relieved.
Apart from and more important
even than her manner io a guest who
happens in for an hour or a day, is
the imuiner of a daughter to her father and mother. The father returns j
lo his home after a weary day at'
business. He is tired in body and
mind. Coming back, as his latch"
key turns iu the home door he throws
oil care; lie is joyous at the thought
of llie dear ones he will meet after
hours of absence. His young
daughter in a pretty gown, with the
bloom ami freshness only girlhood
weiirs, should be ready to give him
the attention be loves — the kiss, the
cheery word—to help her mother and
the rest in letting her father see how
much ho is loved at home. Men give
up a great deal for their families—
their time, their strength, the
knowledge they have gained in life's
experiences—tbey spend everything
freely for their home's sake, and the
home should pay its debt in much
outspoken love.
Girls, listen to your mothers; you
will never regret it. No matter
what your advantages are above
what hers were, you are no better.
You can rest assured that it is not
book learning or knowledge of fashion
J that will keep your feet away from
■ the many pitfalls that she can warn
: yoii from, in a tender, loving fashion, that you would do well to heed.
No matter how mothers may speak,
you may rest assured their hearts
are iu the right place, and that they
want their daughters to lie innocent
and good, rather than fashionable.
If you would gather up all' tender
memories, all the lights and shades
of the heart, all banquetings and
reunions, all filial, fraternal, paternal ami conjugal affections and you
bad onlv just four letters with which
io spell out that height and depth
and length and breadth and magnitude and eternity ot meaning,     you
would with streaming eyes, and
trembling voice, and agitated hand,
write it out iu those tour living capitals, H-O-M-E.
What a different world this would
be if only all of us would cultivate
the grace of good nature! It is the
best tonic for nervous disorders, the
surest preservative of home happiness, ami the most effective remedy
for the divorce disease now unhappily
prevalent, lie who has learned how
to take even the most disagreeable
things and grievous disappointments
good naturedlv mav never lie a millionaire, but lie will be what is much
belter, huth happy and a source ot
happiness, and the atmosphere he
carries with him will be like a bit of
sunshine in the mammoth cave.
There is no earthly need of so much
poverty and grumbling, as one hears
ou all sides today. There is plenty
of food in this great and glorious
world for all ils peuple. It is the
fault of education of our children;
they are brought up wrong. The
children should be broken into some
useful labor and taught to respect
and honor the useful more than the
ornamental. Every boy and girl
should he made lo work at something
that would he ot profit, till the
second nature forms with them. A
man or woman so educated becomes
actually fond of labor or at least
pleased with results, then it becomes
a pleasure to perform it. All
children at an early age should have
a hank aud be taught to save its
money, or, at hest the larger part ot
it. They should not lie allowed to
waste anything, food, clothing, or any
other article \if value. It is the
early impressions formed on tho
mind that are enduring. Very tew
children trained in the right direction   will become    paupers,    unless
caused by sickness or somo unavoidable accident.
One reason why some men do not
get along better in this world is because they have not thc proper stimulant in their homes. Their homes
lack those little touches of rellnc-
ment which bring the best out ot
them. Neatness and taste are possible in the poorest homes. Let a
woman make thc atmosphere as
dainty as her means allow, and she
will raise her husband to the same
standard. And as she elevates him
the efiect is felt upon herself, her
children, her home, and her future.
Some men respond more slowiv to
the touch ot a woman's hand displayed in their home and upon tlieir surroundings. The task may seem hopeless to thc wife at times. But
sooner or later the effect will show
itself. There is something in every
man which responds- to a higher and
gentler influence. Let his home be
rough and he will be rough. But infuse into that home a softening
touch, be it ever so simple, and the
man feels it, even though he may not
directly notice it. He imbibes it
unconsciously, and its effect is sure
upon him.
DON'T REPROVE AT BEDTIME
To send children happy to bed
should lie one of the mother's most
ordinary tasks. No little one should
dread the bedtime hour, nor fear the
dark, nor be allowed to go to rest
under a sense ot disgrace or alienation from household love. Whatever
the child's daytime naughtiness may
have been, at nightfall he should lie
forgiven, and go to rest with the
mother's kiss on his lips and her
tender voice in his cars.
Hardly anything can be worse for a
young child than to be scolded or
punished   at    bedtime.    The mother
does well to be a little blind at
limes, remembering that a good deal
of childish culpability is superficial
only, and washes oil almost as easily
as does tbe dirt which thc evening
bath removes from tbe skin.
The main thing with children is to
have tbem well started with good
principles, which they will carry
through life. Obediency, truth, unselfishness, purity are essentials, and
Ihese can all be lovingly cultivated,
aud will flourish in the right home
atmosphere.
CITY ATTRACTIONS.
The illustration of thc sea-bird
drawn to its doom by the glare ol
the beacon light finds no truer phototype than in the case of the country
girl lured from her home by dreams
of fortune to be realized in the great
city. As ignorant of the wiles of
evil as a mouse is of the mechanism
of a trap, unsophisticated in the
blandishments uf sins; holding blankly to the belief that sheep and goats
never mingle, she drops into thc
maelstrom of a city existence as a
snowflake settles into the river,
"One moment white, then gone forever." Tliere lie in wait for inno-
icence, the wide world over, a legion
of plotting devils arrayed in livery
of light, honest appearing advertise*
I meats that are tent hooks with
which the devil angles for souls; employers who scarcely take tho pains
to bide the fangs of wolves behind
their smiling lips; boarding-houses
infested with other and more hideous
vermin than the rat and the roach;
companionship of more fatal effect to
tbe soul than hydrant water to the
health; counsellors who spin viewless
w.ehs and plot ruin as the spider
works destruction to the stupid fly.
All these, and a great many more,
pitfalls lie in the way of the country
pirl as she turns her light step from
the cowslip   and the green turf     to
take her place in   tin; ranks ol those
wlio walk the path uf daily toil.

chine caught a glimpse
oi tke engine rounding

Their car stopped for a moment only
It was too scared and started lor
Kcrnie at a terrific clip. The
gine chased it up. On the long,
straight piece of track above old
"Frenchtown" the bumper slowed up
sufficiently to allow two men to leap
aboard aiid stop her. She was pulled ofi the track and new passengers
rode her to the Creek.

Keep on boosting Cranbrook. Who
ean lose hy that kind of a proposition?
There are more people from the
outside world interested at this time
in East Kootenay tlmn ever before
iu the history of the district. Wh)
is this? It does not como naturally.
There is some reason fur it. Well,
it is easy to tell the tale. It is
advertising. The people have heard
of tliis glorious country ami they
have come to see it. After seeing it
lliey like it. They know it is a goo,,
thing. That is what is making Canada today. The world is looking to
Canada und Canada can show the
gouds. That is why this country is
going ahead so fast. There are some
people who call the Herald a booster, We acknowledge the crime.
We nre boosting thc best country
on earth, lf you eomc to British
Columhia you can get rich it you
hnve a drop ot red hlood in yoi

There are n lot of new buildings that
are going up in this city that are

If you know a good word tor Cranbrook, say it. You ean never make
a mistake hy standing up for the
town where you live and make vour
living.
Where is Roosevelt? A short time

Some smooth individual, according
to reports, secured something over
$300 by issuing cheques in the name

cheque being for $07,40, The man
was dressed as a lumberjack and got
llie cheques cashed at difierent places
around town, claiming with each individual that the cltcque was issued
for work done the past threo weeks.
Thero should he some provision lur
expenses for Chief of Police Dow so
that lie could use the wires freelv to

Cranbrook, B.C.
A. B. Fenwick, of Fort Steele,
District Deputy of the A.F.&A.M.,
wus in the city yesterday on his
way to Moyie and Creston to install
the new ollicers of the lodges in those
cities.
This is the time of vear that we
have friends visiting us. If vou have
any friends visiting you send us word
or drop in and tell us. We want the
news but it is impossible for us to
catch everything unless you help us
out.
Mrs. Bent, the nurse, who has established a private hospital on a
street near the C.P.R. shops, has one
ol the most modern establishments
in this liue that Cranbrook has enjoyed for some time outside of the
general hospital. Mrs. Bent is
nurse of long experience and she Is
now prepared to take patients and
give them every attention. It is an
advantage to the people of Cranbrook
to have a place of this character
and she deserves credit for the work
that sho has done.
A. Hackett, who has registered
more coal sections of land in this district than any other mau, spent several days in this city last week arranging for a number of new locations that he has made in the Flathead district. Mr. Hackett, through
his efforts and the hardships tbat he
has endured bas probably interested
more people in the coal resources of
Southern British Columbia than any
other man.
To tliose interested in thc clearing
of land we would say tbat we are
agents in this district for thc Monarch Stumping machines and grubbers. Wc have several of these
machines at work iu this locality and
are proving very powerful and satisfactory.—Patmore Bros.
J. Campbell, who hus been visiting
his son here for tlie past two months,
left lust Monday for coast points,
Mr. Campbell was very favorably Impressed with Cranbrnok and East
Kootenay, and said that in his mind
it was one of the best countries In
Western Canada. Mr. Campbell
made many friends while in Cranbrook and regretted very much Ms departure,
Dan McDonald left last Saturday
for his home in Detroit, Mich., but
hopes to be ahle to remove again to
British Columbia. Mr. McDonald,
during bis visit in Cranbrook, was
looking better than he has for several
years and was congratulated on. this,
fact hy his many friends in tbis district. Perhaps there ls no man who
has lived in East Kootenay that has
been more popular with the masses
of the people than Dan McDonald.
He has treated the people right and
they have treated him right in return.
There will be some magnificent
fruit exhibits from Creston and Nelson at the Toronto exposition that
will reflect credit upon East and
West Kootenay. The people are beginning to realize that this section ot
the country is one ot the greatest
fruit raising districts In Western
Canada and those with money to invest aro beginning to put their hands
in their pockets and take advantage
of the opportunities presented.

A GKAVE CRISIS
Hear Sir:
The recent petition et a very large
proportion ui tlie ratepayers laiil before tho Police Commissioners a tew
days a^o, praying for tho removal ot
Uio restricted district, is a matter
whieh certainly deserves moro attention from ilie press than it has
hitherto been si-en, particularly when
wo aro so frcuneutly enjoiueil to
"Boost Cranbrook," and to tlo all iu
our power to advance the hest interests of our young and growing oity.
The fact that so little notice has
been been taken of this step to lay
more solid foundations for our future
prosperity, and to remove the shame
which for a long lime has attached
itself to Ihis place, may have arisen
Irom tho neglect of the Reform
Council in reporting the matter,
Irom the tailuro of the press to send
reporters to one of the most important meetings which the Police Commissioners have attended for a long
timo, The best intelligence oi the
professions, the commercial life, and
thc artlzans of this community was
represented at that meeting; every
shade of denominational preference,
the labor unions, and even the whiskey trade was represented, and to the
credit of the latter, let it be said,
lhat some in tliat business have also
added their names lo the request that
Craubrook be relieved of this blight
and impediment to her progress. I
venture to respectfully suggest, Mr.
Editor, that a matter of sueh grave
import to this town is, in my judgment, worthy of more editorial sympathy and advice than at present
has lieen forthcoming.
Permit mo to point out that we
have arrived at a grave crisis in the
history of this eity. The tendency
f immigration is westward, and very
properly, this district is attracting
manv of the settlers trom the east,
the Old Land, and the States. We
aro blessed with many natural resources, and the probabilities are,
supported by geological formations,
which seldom do other than speak
thc truth, that both coal and oil will
lie our great asset in a very few
years hence. Thc oldest Inhabitant
id Cranhrook will confess that no
systematic prospecting has ever been
attempted, hence our possibilities arc
not to lie over-estimated. There is
not lhc slightest doubt that the
gravel reaches of the Saint Mary's
river arc auriferous; the formation of
the scarped cliffs within a few miles
ot Cranbrook also indicate thc precious metal, and all who have been inlo the Klondike regions will be willing to agree as to the similarity of
the formation. I firmly believe that
a dredge would pay handsomely at
favorable places between Marysville
and the Mission. The fact that tree
gold is being mined along streams
which arc tributary to the waters in
question is strong presumptive evidence in favor of my contention. I
find also that the conditions are very
favorable to asbestos, and it would
be no surprise lo hear at any time
of such discovery.
Now, sir, if such are the conditions, optimistic and healthy as they
are, I venture to say again, that we
have arrived at a grave crisis regarding our future. The present state ot
affairs in thc restricted district defies
progress, and fills with shame every
would-be home seeker who thinks ol
locating among us. Men with families pass Cranbrook by, and for a
very good reason. Our city, sir, can
never come into Its own unless it
does some house cleaning, and if it
is wise, it will do it at once. Those
who have lieen blessed with even an
elementary education, will know,
without wanting to argue, that the
present conditions arc enough to
drive away, and keep from coming in,
tlie families that are the mainstay of
a community. I plead for thc sympathy of the general public on the
matter. Our authorities should have
tlieir hands strengthened. This is a
matter in which our hoys and girls
must Ih- protected at all costs; we
are building one of the finest schools
west of Winnipeg, and east ot Vancouver. With what mockery will
anxious parents seeking to locate herd
view this modern equipment of education, if lliey know that within the
very limits of the city, and impudently and brazenly on our very
front street, near the railway
us large       a       plant      exists
to destroy       and defame!
The tiring is grotesque to
say the least; any man who has
traveled, is dazed and amazed at our
inert stupidity. The feeling in Cranbrouk at the present time is happily
indicative of a speedy
redemption from the curse which tor
so long has hampered ns. To talk
of boosting Cranbrook while sueh
conditions prevail is to expect
beallhy citizens who drink trom a
pool which breeds typhoid fever. Amman who Is truly interested in this
eily will work with all his manhood
fnr an immediate riddance of this
nuisance, aud by so doing he will lift
lhe price nf real estate, be will add
lo tlie income of thc tradesman, be
will rnut out of town the dead heads
who live on the immoral garbage, and
above all. he will make clean paths
along wliieli our children can walk
to purity, prosperity and honor.
I am, dear sir, yours tor a truly
prosperous city,
Rohert Hughes.

FACTS FOR FARMERS
DAIRY DOTS.
Make butter to suit the tastes ot
your customers.
Milk ol different temperatures
should never be mixed.
None hut good cows having good
care and feeding pay. .
The making ot good butter begins
with   the feed   and care of tho cows.
The dairyman should test each cow
separately    both   tor    quantity and
uallty, and dispose ot all non-payiag
ones.
The globules that rise to the surface in Hie first twelve hours make
Uu* finest butter.
The only way lo have clean milk
Is by keeping the dirt out ol it
anil liiis goes a great way in securing
good Haver.
Kor caked udder, bathe with hot
water, just as hot as (he hand ean
bear. This is much better treatment than cold water bathing.
Wliile some exercise may Ihi In-netl*
cial, ihere is nothing gained in exposing the cows to extreme cold or
storms in order lo secure it.
lt is the amount of milk that
cow gives in a year that fixes her
value, and nut Ihe quantity she gives
in a month or two while sho is at
her best.
'. here arc more or 1-iss quantities
of ice-ding malt-rial on the farm that
have little or no commercial tiiluc
in their crude state that can be sold
at a profit if reduced to marketable
produce through the medium ot thc
cow.
POULTRY POINTS.
Cleanliness      maws    tilings    look
neater,    brings  health uud Happiness
to  uiu pouluy family.
Keep tlie windows in your poulut
nousu clean, sunshine iu winter is
tne greatest of touics.
All kinds of poultry are profitable,
bul bens an* more prulitaule than
auy other kind, because the" arc
Steal egg layers.
An ounce ol crude carbolic acid, put
into a three gallon pail ot
whitewash, will mean death to all)
jiseaso germ that may Le lunti..t
aliout the building.
The market for eggs and first-class
poultry has never been glutted. Kinc,
plump birds, properly prepared lor
market, arc picked up last. The demand for poultry aud eggs is increasing faster   than the supply.
The fowl on exhibition is very oltcn
a "painted" bird—his legs are lightly
coated with iodine lo bring out the
color, his comb, face and wattles
have received a generous coat uf vaseline to show up its brightness, and
lhc feathers arc well-washed with
soap and water.
Iu sections where the cold is not
too severe, the open trout house
meets with a great deal of favor.
Sometimes a roosting pen is curtained oii in the rear, and sometimes
a partition of boards is made, with
roosis and nests under the low
roof on the north side ot the building. Such houses should be long
aud narrow,   with a low roof.

An (Kid story as to   the conduct of,
an   eleven-year-old boy comes    frotn
Rochdale.     On waking   at 2 o'clock
in      the   morning Frank   Whitehead
saw that his father had not ban
bed.     He got up to investigate,   and
found    his father    hanging from
beam in the kitchen, with   bis hands
and     feet tied     together.     The lad
cut    the body down, laid it out
tin*   floor,     covered    it   with tablecloths, and    then returned to     bed
At      six   o'clock   he   got up again
and walked to a   nearby village    to
tell   his grandfather   what had hap
pened.
At Edcnbridge, near Tunbridgo
Wells, the vicar resides in a vicarage
which was formerly the King's Arms
public house. A sum of 4:2(10 was
raised at a bazaar a week or two
ago, for thc purpose of eliminating
from the residence the indications of
a public house, several of the leading parishioners having expressed the
opinion that thc building, as it
exists at present, is an unsuitable
one   for   their   vicar to live in.
Twn seafaring men named Harrison
and King were remanded at Chichester recently, charged with stcalitig a
fishing smack at Bognor. They set
off hoping to reach France, but
abandoned the smack four miles out
and got into the dinghy. Const***
guards, wlio were armed with revolvers, and became suspicious,
pursued the boat, eventually eaptin-
mg the men. One jumped overboard, but   was rescued.
Alan inquest at Bethnal Green,
London, recently, on a charwoman a
wilness stated that deceased earned
only 2Jd. a day. Sho worked for
I olisb Jews, who were terrible
sweaters. They would pav as
littlo as Id a day if tlicy could manage it. She had been paid Id for
Iwo lots of windows that took two
hours to clean. For two full days'
washing   she   was given Is. 6d.
While engaged in shearing sheep, recently, an extraordinary accident befell Mr. Roberts, of Typclla, Cardiganshire. Tlie ewe which he wus
shearing struggled violently and
struck thc shears with her Icct. The
-sharp point was driven into tho
throat of the unfortunate man, and
the main artery was several. Ile
died within three minutes, bleeding
to death in tho presence oi his
servants.
The Rev. J. M. Cox, who is a niein-i
ber of the Paddington (London) Borough council, introduced a new method of replying to a call to order
Irom the chair at a recent meeting of
the council. It is best described in
the words of the Ingoldsby legend of
"Nell Cook":
"The   sacristan   be   says    no word
which indicates a doubt,
But he puts bis thumb unto his nose
and spread his fingers out."
What is more, tho extended lingers
pointed in the direction uf tho chairman, who, however, refrained from
quoting from "Othello": "I sec that
nose of yours, but not that dog I
shall throw it to." The mayor called
on Mr. Cox for an apology, but the
latter said that he did not seo that
Iw had anything to apologize tor, so
the council decided that Mr. Cox
should be no longer heard. Thc scene
suggests tho quarrel between the retainers ol the Montagus and the
Capulets in "Romeo and Juliet":
"Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?"
one asks. Tho answer Is: "I do bite
my thumb, sir, I do not bite my
thumb at you sir, but I bite my
thumb."
At Abertillcry recently, Archibald
Lunn, aged 17, was brought before a
magistrate, and remanded on a
charge ot causing the death ot his
father by striking him on tho head
with a poker. A constable stated
that when he arrived on the scene he
found young Dunn sitting on the window sill, quietly smoking a cigarette, in thc room In which his father
was lying dead. When the constable
asked    him   who did it,  he replied,
I did," and when asked what with
he pointed to a poker. Questioned
as to why he .did it, prisoner answered, "Because be had hold ol mv
throat." It was stated that thc deceased and his wife were about to
separate, and that deceased, who was
of a nasty temperament, bad had a
struggle wilh his wife belore which
he had attempted to drown one of
his daughters in a brook near the
house. Thc scene at the house indicated that there must havo been a
perate struggle before the fatal blow
was struck.
A remarkable matrimonial transaction came to light at the recent Glamorgan assizes, when David Jones,
a laborer, pleaded guilty to bigamv.
Counsel pleaded leniency, because the
woman prisoner married knew his
first wife was alive. The first wile,
lie said, had married a man named
William Jones, and the two went to
prisoner and asked him to relinquish
all claims on his first wife, which he
was only too glad to do, and a
formal document was executed in
which David -lones made over all his
interest in thc first wife to William
Jones tor £10. prisoner having sold
his wife In that way thought be was
absolutely free, and then married
Mariam Jones. Thc reason he married this woman was because be had
six young children, and it was necessary he should have someone to look
after them. Thc judge said, so far
as he could ascertain, no one was deceived, and he would let David oil
with 14 days' imprisonment without
hard labor.

. a professional strong man.
U Cum,oi    was cycling   lu      the
street    when a    baker's heavy cart
.nocked him down.     As  lie fell    bo*
iiitlli lhe wheel of lhc cart he    cun-
ildcrud what   was the   best thin; to

iveight ou Uie    muscles ui thc arm,"
ic said.     "Thus 1 saved my chest."
lhc wheel passed oter his chest   and
bumped oil on the other side.    Then
Mr. O'Connor arose, sound in rib and
wind,   and    received tho congratulations of the admiring spectators.   He
was awarded £i Os. damages for   lupines lo his dun and his bicycle.
Clad only in a night dress, a young
woman was rescued    from the tunnel
thc Liverpool line uf the   London
and    Northwestern    railway,     near
ewe, early oue morning recently,
alter uu exciting adventure. She ha'd
been walking in her sleep, and was in
highly excited and hysterical cun-
tlitiou when help readied ber. After
wandering up and down the track f*jt
tunc sue was seen by a young inar,
on the embankment to run into the
tunnel, the approach to which ls protected on one side by a 12 ft. wali,
and on the other by an iron fence.
lie followed her into the tunnel with
rope, by means of which she was
finally drawn up thc wall. But for
lllis timely rescue she must have been
knocked down and run over by an
express train which passed through
the tunnel some moments later.
A legacy of £90,090 awaited a woman in England who could not be
traced by her relatives, so tbe aid
of the investigation department of
the Salvation Army was sought, who
at once set to work to endeavor to
find thc woman's whereabouts. This
was no mean task, for nothing bad
been heard of her by her friends for
forty years. Such details as were
known were sent to the ends of the
earth, and the special officers entrusted with tills work commenced a
search. Ultimately the person was
found in America, iind the final disposition of the property will soon be
made.
A week or two ago a man was run
over ami killed at Wolverhampton,
and at the inquest a Walsall woman
had no hesitation in identifying the
body as that of her husband, John
Bales. A couple of days later, however, the woman was astounded to
■ive a letter from her husband,
who, it appeared, bad gone to St-our-
port to work al fruit picking. Not
only was there a remarkable resemblance in the lorm and features of
the two nun, hut the clothes and
mall articles in Uu* possession "I Hie

wilii those ot the real John Bates.
Prosecutions against Jacob Popp, a
High Wycombe tobacconist, have
ceased.     Week iiller week for    about
*lght years lu* had been sommoiicd
under an acl of Charles II, .for trading on Sunday. And now jK-acc is
declared. Apart from legal and other   expenses    incurred,    he has paid
t2(in in fines anil costs. Mr. I'opp
bus received messages, mostly in admiration ol his attitude, from all
parts of the world. Two messages
reached bim in bottles, thrown over-
hoard, washed ashore, and forw-.irded
to High Wycombe.
It was reported tn the Windsor
guardians recently that* a grown-up
son had refused to work or help his
widowed mother, who was Iieing
granted relief bv the board. Thc
guardians lold the woman to turn
iier son out of   doors.      The mother
aid Unit when she did so tbe neighbors cried shame on her. He threw*
up bis work because he could not get
ighl pence beer money allowed him-
The guardians advised the woman to
take no notice of thc neighbors. The
ratepayers could not afford to keep
the lazy son in Idleness.

CANADA  LOSES  REVENUE.
Ottawa, Aug. 21.—The royal mint
ut Ottawa hus not coined a great
deal oi money and there is complaint
that American silver is Hooding lhe
country. The government has pursued a vaciluting policy in this matter. Some years ago it brought
down legislation encouraging the
banks to ship hack silver to the
United States. The act seemed to
work well enough but for some reason it was discontinued atter b
year's trial only to be ro-onacbod last
session, lt is an accommodation to
American tourisls to have their
money taken at par and merchants
naturally seek to accommodate them
where a sale is in sight. Were Canadian silver coins accepted at par
throughout the United States the
result would probably not diminish
the output of the royal mint. Rut,
except along the hordcr, our coins
arc only accepted in thc United
States at 80 per cent, of,their value.
The seignorage or profit made by tho
government on coining silver is quite
large and there would bo a greater
coinage and ot course a greater profit
it all the fractional silver used in
Canada eamo from our own mint.
