movement, hut it is ol verv short
duration, as the air Is too stroti
for it, aud the lungs are tun weak*
and 80 it dies. A chick dues iml
breathe u natural breath until
it pips the shell. Krum the time it
aips the shell until it is right out it
is adjusting its lungs to real air,
and it is right at Ihis time a low

The Incubator should imt he oueued

the main cause lies in lhe lowering

Again, if eggs are withdrawn in

Stop of action for the chicks. The
enlarging of the air cells am) the
growth of the chick is what makes
the moisture leave, as pressure
within the egg is found, which forces
the moisture out. This pressure
and force is not in an infertile egg.
Infertile eggs do not louse in weight
and the shrink in size is onlv very
slightly perceptible. I have come
to the conclusion (hat the key note
on the uir cell and moisture question has been struck. When we
make large batches of strung chicks
a good incubator will look after ll;
size of the air cells on its own ac-
geittog its work in on new begin-
not a gouii Incubator. More eggi
have been spoiled throush lollowing
Incubator rainbow theories than ii
anv other way, and again more egg
have been ruined hy lamp chimin-;
egg testers than from any oni
cause, as the intense heat serves ti
paralyze the living ami blood vein;
under the shell. The heat sets up
an ailment with the embryo ami in
nine cases out nf ten the chick will
la* deformed, or a chick thai is too
weak to break the shell at t'liie of
hatching. There i.s un old and absurd idea that loo much moisture
makes the chick too hig fur the
shell. The correct idea is that too
much moisture retards the u- .*
To gel rid of the moisture tn a
prober wav is ibe uucstiou. The
haicllit-" nrocess is iu reality a drv-
ing out one. Oil or grease on egg
shells will prevent them from hatch
ii...,. as it closes up the pores and
prevents evaporation from the egg.
Il also prevents the shell fibres from
breaking up or softening so that the
chick can pip or get out.
Air celts vary in size in eg**s king
side bv side in a hen's nest or in an
Incubator. The age of tlie egns, also the kind of eggs, have a r*rcat
deal to dn witb it. Kor instance, a
Leghorn cockerel crossed with a

a Brahma cockerel crossed with Leg-

The whole world mourns tit*.* death
ol "AlarK Twain," Samuel Langliorne
i It-metis. Probably the death o( no
wriier, since that ol Charles iMck-
ens, has conic as a distinct hlow tu
mi many people as has thai of Mark
Twain. Whilst Mark Twain will not
he ranked among the grealesl ol
modern authors, as a humorous
writer he will undoubtedly lake lirst
place. His works appealed to a
larger circle than those uf almost
any other modem dav writer, and,
largely, we think, owing to their
virility. Apart from his gifts as a
popular wriier, Mark Twain had personal nualilies that endeared him to
all wilh whom he came iu contact
ami it i.s not saying too much to
add thai his death will be. more
widely and more sincerely mourned
throughout the civilized world than
thai of anv oilier contemporary writer.
The announcement from O-tawa
thai Sir Wilfrid Laurier intends Visiting lhe West ihis coming summer
will i«- welcome news to the nofiple
of the West, irrespective id political
leanings. Not since he assumed the
reins of ollicc tins Sir Wilfrid had
an opportunity, to visit the west and
we may lie uite sure that the two
months he now proposes to devote
in lue trip will prove as enjoyable.
and inspiring to him as it will prove
welcome     to  the    people of tbe  west
uud beneficial to the Dominion at
luri-c. Ruring the fourteen vears
Sir Wilfrid has been at the helm,
Cnnnda has made vast strides forward, und in no part of the Dominion
has progress been so marked as in
the West, in faet, it is uot saying
ton much lo sav that the West only
reallv began lo exist after the Laurier administration took ollicc. Sir
Wilfrid will, it is understood, devote
a fair share of bis western tour to
liritisli Columbia points. It is to
lie hoped that those responsible for
the arrangements of bis tour, will
sit to jt, that either going west or
returning east, he will pass through
the ('rows Nest country. Sir Wilfrid bus not yet visited tbis section
of (lie province and be may be assured of an enthusiastic welcome when
lie does come this way. He will be
welcomed not merely as a great
party leader and the premier of fan
adu, hut as one of the Makers of
Canada, a Canadian, of whom every
Canadian is proud.
The appointment of Commander
Halfour Macdonald, K.N., son of
that old Tory senator, W. .1. Macdonald, of Victoria, B.C., a native
sou of ihis province, to the rommand
ol ll M.D.'i.s Niobe, recently purchased hv the Dominion of Canada,
at> lhe lirst warship of lhe Canadian
navy, has ht*en announced and the announcement bas been most favorably
received tbroti|^iotit tbe Ihrminioti.
Commander Macdonald lias an enviable reputation as a naval officer, his
record to date being one of which
both he and his fellow Canadians
have everv reason to tie promt. That
such a selection should have been
made for ihe command of the lirst
Canadian warship is th** surest evidence thai Hie Canadian navy will he
administered with an eye single to
(tie hesl   interests of  (lie empire.
Kveiv citizen is alive to Hie fact
that Momlav afternoon next is to be
devoted to On- verv necessary and
heiicticiul work ol cleaning up the
city. It is to be hoped ibat every
Citizen will chcer'illv do his part in
this work.
"Mothers' Dav" is to be observed
in Cranbrook, verv neuerallv on
Sundav. Mav Hth. This should
prove an occasion in which everv
person in Cranbrook should delight
to participate. If the observation
td this dav resulted onlv in absent
sons iHiitiin-** a few lines to tlw*
dear old mother in the cast, or the
Old Country, it would he (be means
of adding immeasurably to the happiness of those whom we nil delight
to make happV, though at times we
mav he forgetful.
Since the beginning id the veal
there bas been a most marked increase in the population ol the city.
Tbe fact has been the occasion of
constant   comment Crunbrook is
|M*culiar in that the business center
is Confined to a verv small area, to a
verv few streets The aspect ol
these hardly varies from vear to
year, while (he extensions, the
growth, the progress of the residential portion is something we can
scarcely realize The city is reaching out like a new kind of' pacific octopus. "Cranbrook is a growing
child, a growing child, and comely

Cranbrook stems to accept what is

Is uot the time opportune to have
a census, an informal census, taken
of the city? It could be done easily
enough by having a printed form left
at or posted to every bouse in the
citv. Tbis form could be tilled up
with the number of people in that
particular house at midnight of a
certain date and the police could take
up the papers in tbe ordinary course
of their duty. Something nf tbe
sort is being worked out in Spokane
and the Spokesman of that city is
offering a prize of $10 for tbe best
guess as to the result. The Herald
will give a prize of $5 for the best
estimate of the population nf ('ran
brook, provided the citv council will
afford the people a chance of knowing how manv there are within the
citv gates. There is Cranbrook and
Greater Cranbrook. The latter
voold take in all those small colonies that lie Just outside the citv
boundaries. The idea should be
tressed lo an issue. tt is really
worth while.

The humorist was a familiar figure
in London, not only iu high social
circles, hut in the streets and parks
ol tbe West End.
Lomlon newspapers publish extended biographies of Mark Twain, some

Thev admit that he was the greatest
humorist the English-speaking race
bus produced in modern times. It it*
doubtful, however, tbey sav, if it was
bis humor that made his greatest appeal to the Knglish heart. Thev consider it more likely that bis pathos
and strong uud kindly and honorable
character did that.

al a New England dinner in New
Vork, are a favorite example id bis
humor aud hi-s power of poetic description. As a lecturer,
a teller of stories, and delineator of
character, be bail scarcely a rival in
liis ability to draw and entertain
vast audiences. lie made a large
income from bis books, which always
had a phenomenally large sale. Very
remunerative also was the plav id
"Colonel Sellers." constructed out of
a novel called "The Gilded Age
After 18.10 Mr. Clemens and bis
family lived most of the time in Eur*
pc. Ear some time before he had
Written little, hut since that bis pen
again became active. He produced
manv magazine papers, a story called
"I'udil'ii Head Wilson," and the most
serious and imaginative work of his
life in "The Cersoual Recollections
of .loan of Arc," feigned to lie translated from a contemporary memoir
left bv her private secretary. In it
the writer strikes the universal
chords of sympathy ami pathos, and
heroic elevation. In IH.l.i-ii he made
a lecturing tour of tlie globe, speaking in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India, and
everywhere received nn ovation due
to his commanding reputation.
Mr. Clemens wus universally re-
cognlxod us the lirst of living American humorists; hut If the fashion of
humor changes, as change ii mav. he
will remain for other qualities—certain primordial qualities such as are
exhibited in bis wnrk on tbt* Mississippi, a force to Im* reckoned with iii
the literature of Ibis century, Mr.

and other languages.
The .tumping Fro*," bis first
hook, appealed in 1*867. Then came
the turning point id bis life. He
went to EUfOpfl on an excursion,
sending home a series of letters to
lhe Aha California. These sketches he
afterward collected into a book, under the title of "Innocents Abroad,"
and il made Mark Twain famous. He
then became tho king of American
humorist*, In a letter Mark
Twain qiiaintlv summed un bis earlv
literary experiences as follows: "I
fully expected 'The -lumping Froii'
to sell .Mi,linn conies and It onlv sold
1,000, and I onlv expected the 'Innocents' to sell 3,000 conies, but it
astounded me bv sellhu* "fl 000 contra
within Hi months." This record
means a great deal more than now,
as the cheapest edition cost $.1.50,
About a score of volumes have followed those first fruits of his genius
"Roughing It" (MM); "The Glided
Age." with Charles Itudley Warner
(1873); "Adventures of Tom Saw-
vet" (187!»); "Sketches, New nml

There is a double benefit in using

removes the immediate trouble, drives
away the cough, soothes the irritated
surfiice,heals the inflamed membranes
and at the same time, owing to its
tonic properties,builds up the system
as a whole.
Its results are marvellous,

London, onoc the safest as well as
the quietest of all groat capitals, is
every day becoming noisier und
more dangerous. The enormous increase of motor traffic has added to
[lie perils of the streets, so that at
certain congested points il really requires considerable activity as well
as nerve to cross from one side uf
tho road to the other. Where lliere
is a policeman to regulate the traffic the pedestrian may wait till one
or other converging stream is held
up aud cross in salety; hut the police
cannot be everywhere, and there arc
points iu tbe Strand at which om
makes tbe passage at the risk nl
life and limb. Even ou the pavement
the wayfarer i.s not quite safe, Motor cars will sometimes skid on a
greasy roadway and bounce upon the
sidewalk. No fewer than 30(1 motor
vehicles mounted lhe pavements during the past twelve months, killing
nine persons and injuring in.i others.
This is rather appalling, and suggests!
Dial automobiles are not always
driven as carefully as thev might he.

Friends often remonstrated with him
about his ovcrfondncss ot the weed,

a clgat box under his arm. "I am

Murk, looking al lhe cigar box,
