EAST KOOTENAY
Till-:      LANB       OF       HEALTH,
WEALTH AND HAl'PINKSS
Cast Koutenay is a very large si b-
iui. So large] iu tact, Hint il is
with Tear and trembling that one Cillers into a description of it. With
an approximate area ol 20,000 square
miles, stretching from lhc houiuhr",
ol her sister province, \Iberia, on the
enst, to the summit •( the ..elki.ks
mi ibe west, from the 1'iterniM'Htal
l iidary   on the   south to a   point
about ..ne hundred mllus m h ul lhc
main line of the ('.,'..;. . n Ihe
n.uih. Kast Kootenay "a ilwtbH.ll] a
bind of golden opportuniti >s. In no
pari ol the North Ametien eoulleent
enn a countrj  of more varl hi      to*
k is he u I.    This "Oro.it 1 one
Land" of ibe past is destined ti    lie-
e e the (ileal   Home  Land if     Hie
Iniiii.-, a home laml ttheie healih,
wenl Hi aud happiness will reign supreme. Kast Kootenay is n land
ol l.iieitt opportunities, a land where
the capitalist mav bud safe and profitable Investments, a land where lhe
man of small means may lav nut his
meagre store in land lh.it ttiil bring
him iu an ample return in golden
grain ami luscious fruit, a land where
lira man without means may find
abundant opportunities to work at
»ood wages which, if he is thrifty,
will soon make him, independent.
Within the boundaries of East Kootenay almost every known mineral may
he found, Gobi is found in quantity and placer mines have been in
operation since 1802. Silver nn.l
lead are there, in fact the St. Eugene mine at Moyie is said to be Hie
largest silver-lead mine on the continent. Copper may be found iu almost any part ol the western and
northern divisions ol the district.
Iron, good hemitite iron, is lound in
lai'L.o -quantities at several points, an.l
as for coal, what is probably the
greatest coal field in the world is
within her borders. The lumber industry is represented by what is one
of the greatest extents of forest ou
the continent and by probably more
saw mills and other woodworking
factories than any other part of the
province. East Koolcnav is a great
farming country, no better lies out of
doors, and there are thousand of
acres which only await the hand of
the husband mil n to make them producers of abundant crops ot grain
aud fruit, is it to be wondered that
the people of East Kootenay are
proud of their country. The eastern portion of the district is one huge
coal measure, probably tho largest in
the world. The city of Fernie aud
the towns of Hosmer, Michel and
Morrissey owe their existence and
prosperity to the coal mining industry which is carried on in their Immediate vieinitv. The city of Fernie
is a Veritable hive of industry and is
c.|iiippi d with everything thnt noes
to mate up a modern lowu. Lighted
by electricity, with a splendid water
and sewerage system, with a full
quota of churches, schools and public
hu IHU iir-h, il is a city of which Kast
Kooti'nai is justly proud, Leaving
tin* coal bearing region we cross the
Klk river and come to lhc beautiful
town of Klko, with its magnificent
[alls, is one of many henutv spots in
Kast Kootenny. From Klko south
to the Boundary line at Gateway is
a wonderluliv rich farming country.
Tbis part of Hie district embrace*-
the famous Tobacco Plains, the Waldo
dislrict and the Hoosville country,
Which has hem christened "The Laud
of tbe Big Red \ppto." Coming
still further west Wardner is arrival
ni. At this polnl lhe Kootenaj
river is erosstd and another groftl
farming country is encountered. All
up lhe Kootenav river, on both'hanks,
i.i ml is found which is second to none
m the world, Farms, ranches and
orchards are seen all th. wav up ibe
nver lo Fort Steele, which town is
itself one of the most beautiful
ii.wiisites in the Interior of the
province. Going nortli of Fort
Steele Hie traveller will cross that
magnificent stretch of meadow known
of small efforts. A eoral island is
lhc Work of myriads of sea insects,
the pyramids of Irlgypl were Ihe result of the labor of thousands of
workers and il was this thought that
has kept Craubrook people working
together in harmony, day by day, tor
Ihe upbuilding of a city of which
every inbahilaut is proud. Water
works, electric light, telephone and
oilier im Hern etrnveulenccs may be
lound here, whilst surrounding      the

of Ihe Royal hotel, Cranbrook, now

KORT STEELE
The mother town id the dislriel
certainly turned loose yesterday
celebrate Dominion Day. The old
lown looked very gay decorated as ii
was with bunting and greenery. What
a foregathering ol old timers there
was. ranchers from up and down the
river, miners and prospectors from
the golden strands or Wild Horse
creek and people from all over tlie
district were there, friends who had
not, seen each other for years and
who had many notes to compare,
were talking over old times and speculating us to the future. As Col-
mil Henderson said: " Mtor all when
old lime westerners get together Ihev
know how to he optimistic." The
icople of Fort Steele have always
>eeu optimistic and with good reason
because just as soon as a railway
inns into 'that town, just ns soo.i
will the wonderful natural resources,
bolh mineral and agricultural, build
up a eily at Fort Steele which will
a credit to Hie district and one nf
which every resident of East Kootenav will be proud.
The first item on the programme
was a baseball match between Fori
Steele and Bull river, whiun, alter a
spirited game of several innings, resulted iu a win for Hull river by a
score of lf> to 12. In the afternoon
horse races were the oruer of the
Tbe tiOO yards race was won
by" Gniv Eagle, Charlie being second,
The :tflu varus pony race was captured by Peter,' wilh Bonny Blue
wl. In the quarter Weasel
Brown won wilh Herman Bav run
ning second by a short head. The
'li saddle hurst: race was in ills
pute over technicalities, but .1. Ken-
ncdv's horse came in first and Peter-
onls Black second. Tbe Indian race
ins won by Pinto. •■ -  ibe rac-
ini there was a renlly very excellriii
\hibition of   wrestling on horseback
by thc Indians, which was thorough!)
loyed by everyone.     Fort Steele is
splendid   place to spend a holiday,
, was eviiletieed bv thc crowd, wliich
nu inhered   between   l.oon and 1,100,
bal were presenl.      The hospitality
d the Fort Steele people knows   no
rounds.     The visitor is made to fni
.<  home ibe moment  he arrives ami
s not allowed to forget that be is nl
miiir until he leaves, wlucli he always

The
Itics band  gave thcil   I ceil
Tuesday evening. The Kiliies ha\e been here belore and when
they were llu-y gave a really first-
class entertainment. This time they
were a little disappointing. Richard
Slross' cornet solo was tltti^tcstlon-
ably excellent, bis handling oi that
Instrument was masterly to a degree. The slide trombone ipiintelle
was a very pleasing number. The
(Man .lohnstonc troupe ol ihuivis
were certainlv splendid. Tlw band
itself does not seem to be up to the
mark that a really first-class concert
band should be. A matter that it
is only fair to mention is that the
system of guaranteeing an organization of this kind, which is in vogue,
should cease. The organization Itself should take the chances not Hie
people of the towns iu which they arc
playing.
CRESTON
on want to have a good time
.■lehr.it inn'.' If you do go to
ston, the land of the big strawberry aud the homo of a lot of hig
hearted people who have only one oh-
t in view when tliere are visitors
town, ami that is to see that lliey
lmve a good time. Yesterday Cres-
li.n eeh Prated and every citizen of
,\n, and lhat included the lad-
well as the nun, did all iu
Iheir power to make the visit ol
every outsider a pleasant one. And
what a beautiful place that is, and
what thev can't raise there is not
worth eating. Of course the world
knows tbat the best strawberries are
produced at Creston. They have
Ihis year outclass-ill tbe lierries
ft..in the State of Washington and
are willing to go against Hie world
on any kind of fruit that ean lie
produced in that climate. A hig
ci ow .1 went down Irom Cranhrook
anv many of them remained over for
a few dais lor it is hard to get away
from Creston aud Creston people-
The ('ranbrook haml furnished the
music and everybody was pleased
with the music, and the lleralil
wants to sav that thc Cranbrook
band did themselves proud. Tho
programme was a goon one, including
horse races, foot races, baseball, log
rolling and other athletic sports, lt
was a groat day Ior Creston and a
most enjoyable one for those fortunate enough lo be there, awl the committee in charge of the day's work
cm feel satisfied that they did their
k well.

a   medical   capacity,    and speut tho
vear    1859 in    Calcutta,     His regiment was ordered to   China in 1800,
and he Joined in tbe    mareh on IVk-
itig.     At  a    later  date part of the
regiment was   utilized in suppressing
i he Tapping rebellion, and during the
operations near   ShamOmi Macartney
first discovered     that    lighting was
more congenial to him than his   own
profession.     A year later he decided
carve bis    road to fortune       in
China, and entered    Chinese service.
He Joined the Evot Victorious army.
and becamo associated with Ll llnnj
Chang.   Ile also came into close contact with Gordon, married a "Taep-
,ng Princess," and commanded a resilient of Chinese "braves.11     His sub-
toquonl work at the Nanking arsenal
lasted   until 1875,   when   diflerences
'.vith l.i Hung Chang about some guns
he had   made,     which unfortunately
hurst, led   to his resignation.     Very
soon afterwards Hie murder of    Mr.
Margary in Yunnan compelled   China
iu despatch   a special embassy    to
England, and Macartney was asked to
accompany it as secretary.    Tbe visit
I'ihglaiid resulted in the establishment
ot a permanent Chinese Legation, to
which bo   was attached, first       as
Knglish   secretary,   and subsequently
as councillor.    He remained in   this
position until Hie end of 1905, whoa
'lie retired.    DSii months later     he
died In Galloway, where his boyhood

The French paid a supreme homage
■ *■ the valiant character of Eraile
Zotu when, the other day, they interred his remains by lbe side ot those
of Victor Hugo in the Pantheon at
Paris. France honors herself as
much as    sne honors the author    of
I'Accuse" in thus rendering the
highest tribute in her power to one
who embodied a singularly lofty type
of courage and of unselfish devotion
to truth and justice. It is not to
Zola the novelist, ur even to Zola
the champion of Dreyfus, that this
mark of national respect is rendered,
'.hough in both these capacities he
displayed qualities which lifted him
far above tbe heads of his contemporaries, but it is to the great citizen of France, who, by his .unfaltering
levotion to truth and his indomitable
courage and self-sacrifice in fighting
for the right and the light, has conferred a new luster upon the race
from whieh        he        sprung
and has        given them
an inspiring example. Tho story oi
the campaign which Zola waged in
connection with the Dreyfus case
forms one of the most dramatic chapters of modern European history. It
has been compared with Voltaire's
line Championship ol Calas, but this
is nnly superficial, lor Zola performed
on a larger scale, covered greater issues, and showed a nobler spirit.
Never was man engaged in a loftier
cause, and never was it pursued with
more reckless   courage and disregard
if self. Zola sacrificed the evening
of his life, wrecked his fortune and
even suffered elile rather than be «
party, by his silence, 1o what be considered a great public wrong. He
fought bis brave fight with practically the whole of bis countrymen
against him and by the sheer force of
bis enthusiasm prevailed. His vindication of Dreyfus, as he himself has
said, was a small matter. What he
really achieved was the vindication ol
the higher purposes of civil life.
France is better for the conflict  into
Which   hi*  plungod  bor,   a-nil  noi       oult
France. Far beyond her borders,
wherever noble ideals are reverenced,
whenever, ia short-, there are honest
men, the honor shown to the memory
of Zola will find a devout and admiring echo.

Miss Ada Mureutt seems to he    a
warm   lady,   one of   Hie  kind   thai
would limi-e a hubby sit up and take
Ins    medicine il   he canto home with
the crowing ot the cocks laboring under the delusion that   cloves will eliminate Hie ozonlc evidence of bibulous
hilarity,     This    welt known woman
delivered a hot     lecture iu Victoria
thc othei night.    Before poutidiug immorality,     Intemperance,  gambling,
and the "yellow peril," she made the
ladies in tho auiiiuic: dub thur bats
in order    io give lhe winked men    a
chance to took into tier resolute face
As a rule we do not bank much on a
woman who will vibrate tbe  ozouo ia
public places.     They ace either looking   for a  husband or    else bursting
with a desire to parade their egotism
before a meek and patient* assemblage
of ordinary souls.       However, Miss
Mureutt whoops tl up ou a little different Hues than    manv other petti-
coated oratorical freaks,    She is full
of vim and oxygen, and fairly makes
the atmosphere foam when hei   word
machine is working    full time.     She
shrieked against the yellow peril    su
strung in victoria thai some ol   Hie
petrified relics in the hail turned saffron ami had     to go out   for a little
Scotch in urdei to endure the trying
ordeal.     Ada docs uut mince matters
nor dress her   remarks in kid gloves.
She hammers the sins of the     world
with hate   knueKles.     und yells     in
scornful delight,     She says that   tlie
greed for gold is the yellow peril   in
the whole British nation, and blames
the while men who hire Chinamen for
It cents nu hour, more than she   docs
the boys with the moon eyes.     She
thinks   we cannot have a white Canada while we have yellow journalism,
jingo polilieians and   red light    districts, and states that the great evils
in the    Dominion    are Intemperance,
inimorality and gambling.     AH these
evils can lie classed under the     head
of intemperance, for intemperance   h
anything, even in religion, tends     tt
demoralize amd drive lhe human race
within speaking distance ot the bughouse.     Miss Mureutt wants a     law
to prevent while men from employing
• laps and Chinks at wages that  will
not perm-it them to live in a   decent
manner.    She evidently never had her
washing done in a mining camp,    or
she     would     have   said    that many
chinks in (Ms province get far     too
mueh for the work that they do. The
brown and     yellow hoys are experts
with the cinch when they have       a
monopoly.        Tbey can never expect,
in an open labor market, owing      to
their   interior    strength, to get the
same    wages as   white men.   In the
lighter forms    of labor they eompet
with white females and drive the In/;
and lewd tu a cigarette existence beneath the carmine Incandescent. Miss
Mureutt's war against the evils    that
ive have iu our midst may do   some
good, but it is a hard Job to reform
this sin-cursed   universe by snatching
at some of the blossoms on the Iree
of evil.    Man is prone to fall in   tho
mud as soon as all angel gets out   ol
siffhfr.     Death or satiety are Hie only
two tbings that     will'make him In,
still or good.        He is made of mud
and bus a natural Inclination tu wallow in it.    It might have been    different if Adam and Eve bud kept out

OROVBR CLEVELAND
Orover Cleveland was the son of
Richard Falley Cleveland, a Presbyterian minister. His mother was
Anne Neal, daughter of a Baltimore
merchant. His advantages in early
life were few, for the times of Ms
youth were difficult, and even fl minister's son could not clearly see the
opportunities.
As a boy he worked as a dork in a
store, aiding in tbe support of his
family. His two brothers were soldiers in the civil war. He could not
enlist, hut he sent a substitute, and
worked many years afterwards to pay
him. At seventeen he was an assistant teacher in a school (or the blind
in New Vork city, and then he wenH
to Buffalo. Here he secured a position as copying with a law firm and
began to read Blackstone, being paid
in the meantime 14 a week.
Alter being admitted to the bar In
1851), his rise with the law firm was
rapid until he became manager at a
salary of $1,000 a year. He supported his widowed mother. Ho became district attorney, afterward
formed a law firm known as Lanning,
Cleveland & Folsom, and then was
drawn into political life. Ills record
as sheriff of Erie county was so good
that It secured his election as mayor
of Buffalo. He saved the citizens ot
the city $1,000,000 during the first sii
months of Ms term hy vetoing extravagant appropriations,
This attracted outside attention and
he was elected governor ol New York
state the following vear. Arriving
in Albany, he walked to the executive
mansion and took the oath ol office,
saying at the same time that "he fully appreciated his relations to the
people, and -lie was determined to
serve them faithfully and well."
In 1K84 he was nominated by the
Democratic convention at Chicago,
and defeated .lames G. Blaine. He
was ai;aiu a candidate in 1888, but
was defeated by Benjamin Harrison.
The distinction ol being elected president alter being deleatod was his
on the following election, when I'resident Harrison was defeated.
Probably no president was so bitterly criticised as was Cleveland and
the reason is not' far to seek. Grover
Cleveland was an honest man with
the courage of his convictions and
could not be handled bv the machine
of his party. He did that which be
thought right and did it fearlessly,
and his death means the passing
a great American statesman-
TIIK DESCENDANT   OF A    FAMOUS ADMIRAL
•lohn Benhow, who has a ranch
about three and a half miles north
of the town, and who is doing a lot
of work in the way of getting it into
shape, is a direct descendant of the
famous admiral of that name. No
naval officer has heen more written
about than Admiral Benbow, with
the exception of Lord Nelson. Admiral Benbow was m»» at Shrewsbury in lufiO and in 17R0 was mane <-,
captain hv King .lames IL, on account nf iiis having, in spite ol the
superior numbers of the enemy, captured a hand of pirates on the Har-
hary utmst. A year or two later
he had one of his legs carried away
by a chain shot in a naval duel between his ship and a French ship
commanded hv DuCasse. He died
in Jamaica in 1703.
A GREAT SUMMER RESORT
There Is no nicer summer resort

Halcyon Hot    Springs on the Upper
Arrow lake, and everyone knows that
Halcyon J-ithia   water cannot       Ite
beaten as a health bringing beverage.
The accommodation     at tbe springs
has been mueh improved slucc      the
sanitarium was taken over hy Harry
Mcintosh, and    a number of comfort
able cottages have heen added to the
establishment.       Rowing,      sail'
motor    boating    and    bathing   nre
among the attractions.    You   don't,
however, have to go to Halcyon    to
drink the waters, because they
bottled and may be procured in

healing. My husband also used Zam-
Buk for a nasty flesh wound on his

ways we havo found Zam-Buk so

EVERY HOME NEEDS ZAM-BUK!
While irrigation farming has been
discussed and written about, in con-
neetion with this district, dry farming, or as some people prefer to call
scientific agriculture, has notF
been talked irbout so much. ProL |
IV. Campbell, of Lincoln, Nebraska,
has been lecturing in Alberta of late
and some of the points he makes are
eminently practical for farmers in the
non-irrigated sections of Bast Kootenay. The main thing in dry farming is to keep tho surface noil loose
so as to form an earth mulch and
thus conserve Hie moisture. Prof.
Campbell says:
"The surface must lie kept loose;
lbe minute a hard crust forms tho
(armor is up against it. Tbe soil
needs air even as mueh as water, lt
used to be that when the crop did
iml took well more water was put on
until it was ruined." I
Even if the grain is six or eight]
Inches high, Hon't he. afraid to harrow
the Innd right over the grain. The
grain will stand a good deal of harrowing wit-bout being uprooted if, Hie
oil is moist, although the extreme
tup i.s dry. The ground should Iw
hanowed after each rain.
"The secret ol success in growing
any crop lies iu the physical condition of the soil when you put in
your crop, The soil must be solid
underneath and loose on top," says
Professor Campliell.
Speaking generally of   arming     at
Cardston the other day, in the semi-
itriii district, Mr. Campbell said that
soon   it will be   that the choice    of
farms will    be in the semi-arid district as a mau can farm with    certainty when he has not got too much
moisture to contend with.    It is re
liable what can be done in     this
belt   when    it is gone at right prln-
ples,         He spoke ol    the greatly
changed   conditions    in   farming between his father's day and now. Now,
public sentiment is leading people to
tlio farm.     Farmers have homes    as
fully modern ns any in the city.   Tho
young people are    not going to    tho
itv as thev used to.    "I look to the
inie. when the   yield of the soil,will
he three times what it is now." Thc
crop makes husiness, it Is the basis
d prosper!tv all over the country.

MANY FIRES
VRK CAUSED  IN THE FOREST
BV CARELESSNESS OF
CAMPERS
"Campers and tourists" is an
answer that comes readily to the lips
of many lumbermen and timber-limit
owners when asked as to how forest
fires originate. Unfortunately the
answer is often only too true.
The camper would certainly be decidedly averse to burning over the
woodland which affords him recreation, rest and pleasure. But he fails
to realize what a small cause may-
give rise to a serious fire in the forest', and hence does not exercise tlie
necessary caution with regard to his
camp fires, anid even his matches and
cigar ends, for these latter, small as
they are, may be just as much to
blame for starting a serious conflagration as a fire of fat larger proportions. Constant care, eternal vigil-
anee must lie exercised in the forest
by everyone who has cause to use
fires (and who hns not?) lest the fire
should escape trom him and get. into
the forest soil and even into the tree
tops.
t'ampors themselves may greatly assist in this matter by observing a
lew (;Tt..M.fti po-titio-ns. Camp fires
should not he any larger than necessary, and no one should leave a fire
even for a short time, without making sure that it is thoroughly put
out. A lighted match, or cigar-end
or other -burning object should never
he thrown down in the woods; it
should be thoroughly extinguished before being thrown away. Fires
should not he built among leaves,
rotten wood or in places where they
are likely to spread on account of the
inflammable nature of the surroundings; build the fire on a rock, il possible, or, if there is no rock convenient at least clear away the leaves,
humus, etc., down to thc mineral
soil, if at all possible. Nor should
tires be built against large or hollow
logs, as in such places It is hard to
lie sure when they are entirely ex-
tiiigiiisheh. If the weather is windy,
it is well to confine the fire in o
hole, dug right down into the mineral
soil.
Only recently newspaper despatches
Htld of very serious fires in the Lake
St. .lohn region in Quebec, destroying one village, these are supposed to
have been started bv careless fishermen who neglected' to extinguish
their camp fires.

BY A DREAMER
Never suspect a (riend of doing you
wrong until the proof of it is es
plain and as clear as tho sim at noon
on a cloudless day, and then—yes,
j even then do not accuse or censure
j until you have heard trom his own
jlijis his version of the supposed
(wrong. If you were ever a friend to
him he is certainly entitled to that
much forbearance and consideration.
If this rule was practised, many a
misunderstanding wouW be averted,
and many a heartache spareu-
Young women have the tt.iino longing to, get away from tltuir native
towns and livq among new scenes and
changed surroundings, that boys are
possesfiud of. They lrel the weight
of local environments, even more than
tlie opposite sex, and one frequently
■liears tho remark, "I wish I were a
boy, then I could have -nne freedom."
This marks a critical period nl n
rating lady's life. .*>ne needs, more
than   ever   before,    wise and lomn;
iinsel, and tho sympathetic companionship ol a true friend., .out there

flsh, untiring devotion. Girls, tell
yout mothers ol your hopes and ambitions, and you are quite certain to
receive advice wlncn you can accept
with profit, and wincu uili dn you
goinl.
So lar as possible, let all women
ilress beautifully; so God dresses the
meadows and mountains, Let them
wear pearls and diamonds, if they
can afford it. (foil hung around the
neck of His world strings of diamonds, and brahled the black locks

nxpect to be seen of the world, let
them look neat and attractive for the
family's sake. One of the most hideous sights is a slovenly woman at the

THE RISE OF A BOY
This hoy goes to his business, and
at his business begins by simply doing the things he is told to do, and
lining tbem in a common and ordinary way. If he stops here, he remains all his life long a drudge. But
if he liegins to see that business is a
greater instrument of beneficence than
that we call beneficence, that trade
is clothing thousands of men where
■harity clothes ten, thai agricultural
and milling industries are feeding
thousands of men where charity
feeds ten, if be begins to see how the
whole history of the world is linked
together,and is God's way of building
up humanity and serving humanity
—as he gets this larger view, and outers into it, life is enriched and becomes itself the minister whereby
love is enlarged and conscience is
strengthened,-the school wherein he
educated out of the lower into the
higher.

trouble. Whv not relievo thc conscience of that little load. You
contracted the debt knowingly and
willingly. Aid you mean to pay if
Certainly you did. Then why not
do it at otice'' Every day's delay increases, morally, the amount of your

BACH CHILDREN POLITENESS
Teach children to he polite. Teach
Ihem there is nothing but   goodness
( he.irl of so much durability as a
pleasing deportment. They will lose
ihe idea after a while that it is
smart to bo pert ami boisterous, and
lake pride in being little ladies and
genttomen,      Teach   them      lo say
Mow do you do?" or "flood morning" to everybody with whom you are
acquainted; never to contradict,
whisper, hum, beat a tattoo with the
lingers ou tbe furniture, or loll
around in lounging attitudes iu company; to    say "Yes, ma'am,"     and
'No, sir," "What, ma'am?" "If
pleam," and "Excnsn mc," if it is
necessary to pass before any one, into leave" thc table before tbe rest,
arid never lo do any o[ the things
im which it is necessary to ask to be
excused unless it is absolutely unavoidable; not to toss things instead
..f handing them; not to listen In
anything not intended Ior their cars,
not lo refuse to give the whole to a
visitor when half will not do. A
polite child is tbe hest ot companions, but a rude one is a troublesome
nuisance, and will find himsell teaming at IH or 30 things wliich should
have lH»en taught him when a child.

THAT  POTATO   HUSINESS
Following the editorial suggestion
made in last week's Herald about the
mutter of finding out how many po-
talus wotllH he raised in the district
this year, lhe following letter has
been received bv the Herald:
The Editor Cranbrook Herald, Cranhrook, B.C.:
Dear Sir: Allow nre to thank you
rii behalf of the Farmers' Institute
for drawing the attention of members
of the Institute and the public to the
matter of the local demand for potatoes being filled hy local growers.
The directors of the Institute have
had this under consideration for some
time, and it is their intention as
ioon as the crops arc far enough a-d-
auced, to prepare statistics not only
d lhe potato crop, but ol all root
■rops which will be available for sale
in the district.
Yours truly,
George H. Ashworth,
Secretary-treasurer.
PLAIN  STATEMENT OF  FACT
(Fernie Ledger.)
Some nl our merchants have from
ime to time made complaints about
leople sending east Ior goods. Of
■ourse It is wrong for people to deal
..iitside of Feruie. And H is just as
wrong for these same merchants to
semi east for printing. Some of
them haggle about the price. And
when thev gel it here from the cas*t
ihey wiil find it costs them as mueh,
f nol more than they can get it done
for in town. V:w it is just as fair
ior people to deal with Eaton as it
,s tor the merchants to send away
nr printing.
A GREAT FRUIT RANCH
E. Mallandaine, who took a drive
last week through the Windermere
ountry, tells of a ranch ol 20,080
crcs planted with 58,080 fruit trees.
Tliis land is all irrigated and not one
tree out of the 58,008, which were
planted last year, were winter killed.
This land is "located on the west side
of Windermere lake, on Goldie creek,
nml is irrigated hy water taken from
Duck, Toby and Horse TWel creeks.
Mr. Hefiner is the godfather of the
project and he intends to divide up
the tract into blocks varying in size
from 18 to 18 acres and sell the sub-
livisions to settlers.

An extensive bush fire started
Thursday afternoon to the south
the town and for a timo was the
cause ol considerable alarm to our
citizens, and considering tbe high
wind prevailing many were the conjectures as to its finale. Happily
the wind subsided before long which
coupled with the vigorous ami untiring efforts of volunteers the lire was
brought to bay. The lire raged
fiercely in the vicinity of the Cellar
Valley Mills also the Kernie Brick
company's plant, both being apparently doomed to destruction. The
Brick company's plant was saved,
but we regret to say that the lumber
company suffered considerable Loss of
standing timber, The fire is thought
to have originated in a shack which
was the first burned, it afterwards
spread into the bush. There were
three or four shacks burned, a Mr.
Smith lost 32,866 poles, Mr. Cameron
lost some posts, and several houses
in the, immediate vicinity had narrow
escapes, and were only saved by
strenuous efforts on the part of the
fire fighters who worked with such a
will it would be invidious to specify,
but were it nol for the hard work of
Fcrnie's brave volunteers more damage would undoubtedly be done, owing to the bright summer sun of several days, more care sliould be exercised iti the handling of matches,
stubs of cigars, cigarettes, elc.

CANADA THISTLE
Between the provincial-municipal

Canada thistle Is one of the most
prolific and worst needs kmwn in
Norlh America. In a few weeks the
evil will be seated and the wind
will have carried the seed all over
tho country. Near where these
thistles are found are several well
kept lawns. It Is a shame that this
nuisance should he allowed to propagate itself, especially when it is so
easilv eradicated. Half a day's work
the' on lhe part of the street .gang would
tbe settle the matter.    Why not?

With the object of converting the
southern shires, the Women's Freedom League Btarted a suffrage van
from Oxehott, in Surrey a tew days
ago. The van, which is a targe,
roomy, one, with sleeping accommo-
Hation for two, a stove, library and
writing table started for Leather-
head, its bright green paint and Inscriptions "Votes for Women" on
either side attracting a good deal of
attention. The journey, which is to
occupy a month, will be continued
probably as far west as Bognor and
iWinchester, the two ladies who occupy the vehicle speaking at every
town and village in whieh they stay
for the night, uther ladies occasionally joining them Ior the same purpose, The lirst meeting of the campaign, held at Lcatherlw-ad recently,
was not a success. The main thoroughfare of the town was blocked by
.. thousand or mnre people, many ol
them armed with eggs, and Mr,.. Islington Qrelg, who attempted to give
au address, was prevented from
speaking by the din of & bell, hooting, shouting and singing. Kven-
tiially she was allowed five minutes
to explain the bell-ringing at Dundee. Mrs. Dcspard was also given
a hearing on account of her age" bul
no one else was allowed to speak.
More exciting scenes took place out
side the Victoria Hall, where the suffragists hold a meeting later, and refused admittance except to women
and a lew men. A huge crowd
surged against- the doors, and a police Inspector, -sergeant and seven
(■unstable had a rough time. A
number ol eggs struck them, and a
stone wont through the window above
their heads, The position of the police became untenable and word was
sent to the suffragists to close the
meeting, as the police could not bold
back tlie crowd. The audience tiled
out by tbe back door.
Scotland Yard has suffered a loss in
the. death ol ex-Chief Detective Inspector S. Jarvis, who, after twenty-
seven years' distinguished service in
tlw? Metropolitan police, retired on a
full pension hi September, 18H7. Alter
serving In his youth as a cadeb-ap-
prcntice in the mercantile marine,
Mr. Jarvis, who was a native of
(Hampton, Devon, joined the \. division in 1807, and within live units lie
not only attained the rank of sergeant, but was drafted into the criminal investigation department, under
the late Chief-Superintendent Williamson. In 187tl, however, he resigned
that position to go to thc United
States, where for a couple of years he
did valuable secret service work.
Again returning to London, ho rejoined the Metropolitan police, and
quickly rose to the position ot detective inspector of the \V. division. On
iiis promotion to the chief inspectorship he was transferred to Scotland
Yard, where he completed the le-
mainder of his service. In his time
Mr. Jarvis was engaged in i-iany
famous cases. He traced I.efiny,
who was hanged for the murder of
Mr. (told on the London & Brighton
railway, and took a prominent pait
in the conviction of Dr. (lallnher and
his Fenian associates, and two wen
who received life sentences for a dynamite explosion at the Tower of
London. A large part of thc special
inquiries with reference to the career of Neil Cream, the notorious
South London prisoner, devolved on
Mr. Jarvis. Other notorious fonts wlio passed through his hands
were   Memiell   Howard,"the ■interna-
onal bnnk forger; Dombrowski, a
Russian forger of bonds; and within
months of the completion of his
ice he ran to earth at Scarborough Latimer Jones, the clever
American forger and bank thief.

V remarkable account of the building of Winchester cathedral ami the
present predicament of those who arc
responsible for its maintenance was
given by the IVan of Winchester rent ly. when an appeal was made tor
aid for the Winchester preservation
I. The dean stated that the
builders   of   the   cathedral    in   the
leventh century began with the west
end, amt tliere "found a good solid bed
t gravel, but as tbey went eastwards they found the gravel gradually dropping till at last it went undei
water. Those early builders had no
appliances to deal with such a mass
[ water, and they laid trunks of
beech   trees   along the   lines of the
nils. Now the walls of the trau-
jits wero being under-pinned, and
pumps were being worked to reduce
Ihe level ol water. Divers had been
sent down, for the first time in the
histon  of church building, to   clear
ut  the    gravel   soil and    do other
ioik.     Though    the eastern portion
f the work had not been completed
still Ihey had made It sale for many
■nluries to come. The cost of repairing tlie southern transept was
estimated nt £R7,00O, and towards
that sum they bad received nearly
tS6.0lin, so they wanted £31,000
more raised.
The police at Tottenham are inquiring into a boas perpetuated upon a
number ol local professional men and
tradesmen at the expense of a well-
known resident, who ls a bachelor,
and occupies rooms in Lansdowne
road, one of the best residential parts
of the district. A day or two ago
an undertaker called at the house
lo measure the gentleman's "dead

another arrived on tltc same errand,
Then a doctor came to attend Iter,
and almost at the same time

tbem to come and pray with her In
her dying moments. The last three
met together, and It Is stated were
considerably amused to find themselves victimized in this manner.
Later on, various tradesmen attended at the house, one being a florist
with (lowers "for a wedding," some
of which he had specially procured
from Covent Garden, and another a
furniture dealer with a quantity of
goods, and they found that ihey had
l»een deceived.

David Barrett, who tot more than
in years drove the King, then the
Prince ol Wales, in a one horse
brougham to all his private engagements, has died after a long illness.
Entering the royal service m 18titi as
seeoml postillion, he was subsequently promoted to the post of coachman. In the latter capacity he had
tlie reputation ol never having made
a mistake or having been involved in
an accident. Such was the King's
confidence in him that when driving
his royal master he was never oo-
ci imp-a nied by a footman. When
llarrett was laken ill last summer
the King sent him and,his wife to
x.inilnmrh.im for a holllfdv, and
deit-d Sir Francis Laklng and Sir
Thomas Barlow, his own physicians,

A novel village hall, consisting of a
disused railway carriage, has just
been provided at St. (Jennys, Cornwall, by the village bandsmen and
iheir friends, at their own expense,
for band practices and other purposes. Tbe hand hail previously
practised in the school room, but the
church was too near, and the noise
interiYrred with the week day services. Tho railway company having
agreed to sell one of their disused
carriages at a very moderate price
lhe Li.nl of lhe Manor provided the
bandsmen with a site at a nominal
rental. The carriage contained live
compartments, four of which have
heen thrown Into one, mild the fifth
connected by a new door. The interior Ims been fitted up to answer
all purposes for a village hall.
The management of the Cattorick,
Races, Yorks, recently decided to en-
largo the size of the course, and during the excavations carried on for the
purpose ihe workmen uneartnm a
grenl quantity of human hones, Roman coins, and pieces of Samian aud
rpehurch ware. The race course
lies just to the east of the old
Roman road and the Roman camp ot
Cataractovem (hence Catteries), and
it is .surmised that the bones are
those of men of the Roman loglops
wlio fell in repelling an attack ou
their camp by the Brigantes.
The death has taken place at Salt-

lie had lived in tire village all his
life, arid began to work ou the Ivy
Hall Farm when tic was seven years
of age. He had never worked anywhere other than for the owners and
tenants of this farm, and as he continued his employment until within

HOSE not familiar with
thc facts might well ask
thc 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 the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people thc
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great cxp«nse an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the *l
same price that is charged for the f *
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 tl
to Nelson. $|
As to ADVERTISING, the \\
HERALD "delivers the goods." ff
This is evidenced by the crowded ||
condition   of   the   HERALD'S ff
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.

As a fruit country the Cranbrook
district is unsurpassed. Although,
al the present time, but few orchards are of bearing age, still those
few have shown what can be done
along the lines of fruit cultivation.
The Cranbrook district has a larger
area of undeveloped fruit laud Uuu
auy other district in Hritish Columbia. Fruit lands may still be purchased at a reasonable purchase
price, which same cannot, be said of
any other district in the province.
MARKET GARDENING
Market gardening is also gone into
on a quite extensive seal* and lhe
quality of the vegetables raised is
second to none on tlie continent.
MINERAL
The surrounding district is famous
tho world over for its large bodies
of silver-lead ore. The St. Eugene
inino at Moyie is said to be the largest- silver-lead mine, on the North
American continent. Tlm Sullivan
group and the North Star mine al
Kimberley contain largo deposits ot
the same ore. Gold placers me Iieing worked at a good profit
Wild Horse and Perry Creeks, while
many excellent copper prospects exist
in various parts of the district.
Large bodies ot iron ore have also
been discovered within a very
miles of lhe city.

delivered an address to the vegetable
growers of Eastern Ontario and
speaking on the subject of quality,
said:
"Quality ranks in importance with
oorlhicss and is to be considered before quantity.    It is essential.    It is
jibe factor that largely determines
tho commercial value of our product
TELE- though I regret to say that in this
country our people, the purchasers
and consumers, are not as partlculai
iu lliis matter as they might be. Ap'
pearanco and size aro fairly good indications of quality, but lliey are always infallible. 1 think one ought
to be able to establish a reputation
iu vegetables ns one can in butter and
millc and eggs.
Quality in vegetables Implies sue-
culency, crispness, good flavor, absence uf woody fibre nr sliiiiginess
and pungency aud bitterness. Take,
for instance, the early beets and turnips—fo be palatable there must   he

opinion these figures may be safely
used as Iho basis [or the calculation 1
uf tlio value uf (mil lands in the
Koutenay district. Ten per cent Is
an exceedingly good return on the
average investment. Hence (2(15 per
acre net profit represents ten per
cent ou $2650 per aero ami shows
that land value at present hereabouts cannot now be said lo be exorbitant judging from the prices advertised, Mr. Hrock, however, is
careful to add lhat all Intending purchasers of laud should personally
visit, investigate and ascertain nil

Mr. Hrock figures out the approximate value uf an acre ol land in Ihis
way; Land, $100, clearing, m«u; cost
to gel laud Into bearing, approximate, $350: total, $500. At lirst
ihis looks like a lot of money to paj

market Hardening, as practised in the
British Channel Islannds and in the
norlh of France, of course modified so
as lo suit this climate, is probably
tlie coming method whereby the white
man can make a good living off n
small acreage by growing vegetables.
In the i.mill of France il is nn uncommon thing for a man, witli Ihe
help onlv of his family, to make
$1500 a year off of half an acre of
land by tho use of frames, hand
glasses and so on. A full description of these methods are published
from time to tlmn in the various ng-

Ity a quick and uninterrupted growth
—the development must be rapid and
continuous—herein lies success as regards quality—and to a large extent
carliness, an Important matter from
the standpoint of profit. It is thus
evident that the first question we
have to answer i.s what are the factors, the conditions that lend to this
rapid growth?"
Mr. Shutt went on to say that the
texture of the soil itself was of tlie
greatest importance. "It must not
lie too heavy," he said, "that is,
sand rather than clay must be pre
dominant and it must he rich ir
vegetable matter as derived from the
liberal application of tarin manures."
Drainage Is a matter that Mr. Shutt
goos Into very fully, the aim being
lo have a warm, moist, mellow,
well-aerated soil, so as to allow tor
rapid root development. The soil,
so as to allow ot rapid growth,
which is the secret of crisp ami well
flavored vegetables, must be capable
of retaining moisture, of holding air,
of readily warming under the sun's
rays and of being responsible to application of manures and fertilizers.
Outside of manures and commercial
fertilizers, the compost heap should
be a cherished asset ot the market
gardner, and there sliould he always
a young mountain of chopped up snd
piled in alternate layers with stahle
manure that from the cow stable being Hie best. This Is allowed to rot
and should hn spaded over and thoroughly mived and welted down from

Important points, such as the quality
of seed used and this Is a point where
the Chinese gardner fulls down, because he will not pay the price. Arranging operations so as to get early
crops of the various vegetables Is n
matter which sliould be studied, and
preparing the product for market In
,n attractive form should not bo
iverlooked. There is no reason why
his district should not become a
groat- producer of vegetables of all
kinds and that the market gnrdners
t this part of the country should not
i.ike a reputation as growers* "I

sume way us Mr. Wigen, of Creston,
