first-lass up-to-date school will cost!
the eity about, 51:1,000. Tbe present
school accommodation is terribly Inadequate and with a population
growing as last as that ol Cran-
hi >e-k it. is imperative that action
along those lines hv taken und that
at. once. The Herald believes in
municipal economy, but when it
comes down to education of the
children, the word economy is out of
place altogether. The Herald i-s ia
favor of the passing of the bye law
and even at the risk of a slight increase in taxation il feels sure that
tbt! [i-pople nf !'ranbrook will see the
necessity of a now school.
The fact that tihe House of Lords
has iv.jwM thu licensing bill will,
nu doubt, hrinj; abemt the inevitable- Conflict hvttteui the two Jkmiscs
of parliament. So far »way from
Kiigltiml it is impossible to (onu an
intelligent opinion of how the British
public are going to take it. ll
seems very doubtful whether the
prime minister will itsk for a <HfttO*IU-
lii-ii on account uf the action of the
upper bouse. There is no doubt but
ihai a struggle will come and wlu-n
it docs it will be one of the greatest
political lights that the world has
over known,
ho says the Chinese are not civ i-
llzed? They have been having a
panic and the depositors have parti-
'patid in runs on thu bunks. Fourteen banks have closed their doors.
This sounds like a news item (rom
New Vork.
These frosty nights moke us all sing
the same old song: "Boost- Cranbrook
■uid  the district."
Watch Cranbrook grow. Then keep
on watching and see it grow more.
l!»o» will be the biggest growing
year for Cranbrook in her history.
The Phoenix Pioneer celebrated its
tenth birthday last week. The

that the people of Phoenix appreciate

NOTE: The average circulation ol
tbe Herald lor the past live months
has been 6,317 per month, which
shows a substantial increase. It is
only fair to the advertisers, however.
to say that this material increase of
ihe average was due to an increased
number ot papers issued during tho
month ot October and distributed almost entirely in a systematic manner
through the territory tributary to
Cranhrook.
The action by the school trustees
last evetiiu when J. A. Harvey and
J. O. McCallum laid a petition he-
lore the city council askinn that a
modern ten roomed brfoki school
house should lie erected, is one that j
should bave the hearty support ot
eviTv citizen of Cranbroott, At the
regular civic election in .lanuary ihis
matter will come More the people
and they will be asked to endorse the
borrowing of sufficient money tor this
purpose-      It     Is estiamted' that     a
Canadians The only llag that au
■every day liritish subject- can liy is
the l'nion .lack. The white ensign,
that is a white fla* with St.
rge's Cross and the .lack in the
corner is the llag of the lloyal
Navy. Th<" blue ensign, which is
blue with the .lack in the corner, is
the flag of tho Royal Navy Reserve
and the red ensign which is used
with thv .luck in the corner Ls the
Hag or' the British Mercantile Marine
But, bo it understood, on land British
subjects can onlv fly the straight
Union -lack and tie within their
rights. There is no such thing at
present, as a Canadian ensign or an
Australian ensign, but no doubt they
will como some day.
The municipal elections will be duo
next mouth and it is up to the cttl
of the town to think things
The present council has. iu the
Herald's estimation, done more for
Crnnbrook than any other aggregation of men in the town's history, lt
is not fm- a newspaper to dictate
aid the Herald would be tbe last
newspaper in the world to dictate to
the people o( Cranhrook, but it
still expresses its opinion, whieh is
unaltered and that is that Lt is in
favor of the return of thc present
mayor and council just- as It stands.
Vote iu favor ol the school debenture bylaw.
Keep boosting Cranbrook and
South Last Kootenay. Its a goud
thing, push it along.
Last Tuesday was the tilth birthday of Her Majesty (-[uecu Alexandra.
The nueen, since she came lo Kng-
land from her Danish home, has endeared herself to not only the Kng-
lisb peuple but to the people of
the empire at large. Many happy rv-
tums of lhe day is the wish of all
good Canadians to the Queen.
I'he words of Tennyson, which    at
the   time of her    arrival in England
in lUttf, are most appropriate:
The Sea-King's daughter as happy us
fair,
Blissful pride of a blissful heir,
Bride of the heir of the kings of the
sea—
t) joy to the people and heir to  the
throne,
Come to us, love us and make us your
own:
Kor Saxon or Bane or Norman we,
Tueton or Celt, or whatever we be,
We are each alt Bane in uur welcome
of thee,     '
Alexandra!
There are pillows wet with sobs;
there are gentle, sensative natures
seared and warped; there are old
time friends separated and walking
their lonely ways with hope dead
and memory but a pang; thero are
cruel misunderstandings thai make
life bare—these are but a tew of the
sorrows tbat come from the crimes
of the tongue.
The Vancouver Saturday Sunset in
its issue of the 28th ult. is standing
up oa its hind legs again ahout the
Cranbrook Herald's stand, oa the
Dominion election in Kootonay- It is
really too bad tbat the equilibrium
of such a really first-class society
weekly as tlie Sunset should be upset
and it really, in a brother)? way,
distresses the Herald that such
■hould be the case. Tbe Herald is
perfectly aware ol the tact tbat
Vale-Cariboo and Kootenay returned
Conservative members, but even at
tbat, is there any reason for post"
mortems sueh as the Sunset digs up
from the political grave. Dear old
Sunset, the election is over—really
over—have you not heard that in
Vancouvei? and why, oh why, do
>ou want to rub it into the best up-
country paper in the west unless,
bless your old heart, you want to advertise us. We were grateful—so
truly grateful—tor the beautiful car-
toon you gave us a few weeks ago
e are more than grateful for
your la-si beautiful roast, but you
dear old Sunset, you can't make us-
uad. We still maintain what we
said before, the material and not the
aesthetic is what makes thc world go
round. Vou said some nasty things
Sunset-far nastier than Jon had
mv right to, but we forgive you be-
anse no doubt you will switch your
jolors and be on the other side of
the fence again in another Issue or
two. Of course if there is any more
.ree advertising for the Cranbrook
Herald and the banana belt coming
we shall be always glad to have it.
Tlie llag question is one that seems
to be spoken of and about by a l<l'xe
number of British Columbia papers.
New Westminster wanted the Caua-
liiun ensign over the schools of that
cily. So did Golden. Tho facts ol
the case are Ihewe: The Canadian ensign does not exist, it Is simply a
flag    made     and   devised   by some
THK     THUNDERER'S     LATEST
POLICY.
Montreal, Dec. 1.—In an interview
here this morning Lord Northcliffe
wlio is on his way to Newfoundland,
said hv was going to open ofliee lor
thc London Times In Ottawa, and
haw a- regular stall of correspondents, organizing a greatly needed service of Canadian news. This, he
said, would prove very beneficial to
Canada and England. His lordship
said he would return to Canada next
year and take in the Canadian west
because he wanted to become acquainted with' the "whole Dominion.
This announcement is regarded as
having especial significance owing to
complaints about the alleged politically colored news sent from Ottawa to
the Times. In tbe recent campaign
Liberals complained of despatches
about tbe G. T. P. project designed
to create a feeling o( unrest and prejudice the British electors against the
railroad and the Laurier government
So aggravating were the despatches
the board of transcontinental railway
commission have asked Charles Russell, the Canadian legail representative
at London to demand a retraction
and apology from the Times. During
the past two or three campaigns on
the eve of the contest despatches
from Ottawa have appeared in the
Times tending to represent the collapse of the Liberal government and
foster a sentiment in England favorable to the Conservative party. The
Liberals have objected and sny all
Ihcy want is the news without party
bias. The coming changes in the
Times' stait will be awaited with interest.
B.  C.  LEGISLATURE.
HOUSE TO   MEET AT VICTORIA
ON THURSDAY, JANUARV 21
Victoria, Nov. 2fi.-The IMH session of the piovincial legislature
will commence on Thursday, January 21. The date was lived at the
executive meeting of the ministers,
when an orderiin-oouneil was prepared tor the signature of the lieutenant governor.
A somewhat earlier date would
have been preferred, but it was lound
that the Hth, tbe second Thursday
In January, was the date of the
municipal elections, so the 21st was
decided upon in order to prevent any
possible clashing.
There was a full attendance of ministers at the executive meeting and a
great many administrative matters
were discussed.

"THE  CHHI,  FROM CHILI."
'"lite. Girl From Chili" got the
■liilly reception it. deserved. Thc
iilayi or whatever it, was, was a
false alarm Irom thc rise ot the
curtain on the lirst. act to the drop
nf Hie same in the third act. H
is an outrage on the public to bring
sueh shows* as the "OM From Chili"
through the country and take the
nenUle's money. To think ol "The
Girl From Chili" makes a cold shiver run down one's buck. The Herald
has had occasion   to say many rude
.lark McNeil, an old time prospector
nl Ihe district, cnnimtUcd suicide In
his enhin on Moylo river yesterday by
shooting himsell in the head* with a
ride. McNeil was well known and
highly respoctedd throughout the disr
tiicl anil his many Iriends will regret
to hear of his rash act.

THROUGH        LOWERY'S      EYEGLASSES.
Pew men cun see tho humorous aldo
of life as clearly as can il. T.
Lowory. Here arc a few wliieli
iin tn sliow the humor and pathos ul
tho Colonel's mako-up:
"Arrowhead is jusl aliout bwenty-
elght inllea from Revelstoke hy tne
cam. I thought it was about 150
when I walked through the wilderness
acme years ago carrying n pnek
uf nro samples on my bark, and lis
lenlng to the high notes of the timher wolves iis they coiled to mo tor n
samiwloll, it might nui in. gonerally
known, Imt wolves will not attack a
man if ho treats them kindly. ITaiul
ii porterhouse steak to a wolf nnd tin
will de your friend for several minutes. Boiled luun will do if you are
out of porterhouse. Wolves ate not
fastidious and never howl if a herf-
steak Is tough, nor do ihcy require
anv .stomach bitters before eating. A
dvsjii'|itic wolf is unknown nnd any
clever individual could make a fortune buying their appetites mul selling them to flu- sickly rirh."
"In the early days the hotels of
Nelson had a butikhouse attachment-
for the use of prospectors who packed
iheir nwn blankets. The bunfeliouso
was a shed in which were cots filled
with hay. Von cotltd sleep in there
without any charge, "Biintthouse"
Hrown. afterwards known ns ''Step-
ladder" Br nwn, slept; there many a
night aud laid lhe Foundation of his
fortune     It was Uiuwl who painted
a sign on the door reading thuslv:
i 'lintel Paris. Guests must keep
their sucks on and not eat hay. Anybody taking whiskey tu hod or knock-
ins down the stove will he tinetl the
drinks. If bedbugs are found upon
to the police Petticoat* are considered contraband. Nn snoring
aloud. The gas must not lie blown
nlil nm the door locked. Guests
ttitliniil hflggage must take the top

portei or bartender is required
Guests needing moro hav oan get it

"Hniiii" lire summer days of the
hoom in S.ueion, Itill Slubhs mingled
in the formation. Ifc was the most
polite man in the camp, and (lie hoys
e.ilied hiui '('hauncey." After a
lime the white plague fastened Its
'old fingers upon him nnd hu came
iu Endcrby with n. vain hope that, the
climate might stay the hand of
d.-alh. Paddy Murphy took him in
and for many a day he did everything possible fot "Chauncey," but his
kinibiesR and generosity could not
make the grim reaper throw down
his hand. So with a smile upon his
bloodless face "Cbnuitcoy" cashed in
iind crossed the divide to push clouds
with the angels. Tenderly and qulet-
Ij Paddy made all nrrnncements for
lhe funeral and planted "OhaUnCoy"
out in the cemetery where the (lowers
bloom on his grave, the weeping willow sighs, and the meadow larkK
sing sweet songs over the home of
tbu dead."

THAT COW BELL AGAIN.
(Moyie Leader,)
Iu Crnnbrook the cow bell must
go. No longer can tbe sensativc
ears of the good people of that city
tolerate tbu clang of tho bull us
bossy wends her way through tbe
alleys iu search ol potato peelings-
and' other junk- What's getting
wrong with the people of CranbrooK
anyhow? First they objected lu tlie
dink of the poker chips, then the
whirr of thu slot machines almost
drove ihem into hysterics, and now
iln- merry Jingle uf the cow bells
no longer appeals to them. We often
wonder bow tbey can stand fur the

HOUSTON  FOR A WHITE R. C.
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
Wo stand tor a "White Canada,"
was a declaration made from every
platform in British Columbia
which pulitielans stood during the
election campaign tbat came to a
close lu Kootenay and Yale-Carthou
on Thursday, November I2th. Conservatives tried to out-bellow Liberals in making the declaration. Yet
how many of those who made platform speeches on the question were
anv more sincere than are the leaders
uf the parties whu live iu the eastern
provinces? Few, if nny. No man
in Kootenay who spoke un the platform for thc Conservative candidate is
for a "White Canada," if tlm work of
king Canada white puts either him
anv of his family to inconvenience.
The same may he said of YaU-Cari-
buu. Aud what is true of Kootenay
nd Yale-Cariboo is true of every
thcr district in the province. Tho
I men who control the political parties
in liritish Columbia are insincere in
declaring for a "White Canada."
Thej* use the words "White Canada"
as a cry to catch ihu political gudgeons who are patty men wit-bout
knowing whv Ihev are, other than
iheir fathers were party men. The
cry "White Canada" was not hoard
Prince    Rupert    during tho eam-
hearted resolutions. Tbey stood up
in the open ami declared "that they
would make Prince Rupert white
and those that would make it yellow
must flock In* themselves. There are
so few employers of Asiatics in
Prince Rupert that thev will feel
lonesome when flocking by themselves,
and as Prince Rupert will not lie
made up uf men from Vancouver and
Victoria, where Asiatics are so generally employed, the men who will
come here will all the more readily
fall in line when thev find public opinion formed on so vital a question.
The trade of Prince Rupert will not
he with tbe suuth. It will he with
the north, in which there is no Asiatic labor. Tne industries that will
he started In Prince Rupert will be
employers of white labor, for no Industry can succeed in a tuwn or city
if its managers run counter to public
opinion. Prince Rupert has started
light, and if only its men eligible to
become members of a Board ol Trade
keep in line, it will be a ■"' odel
citv" in more Ways than one.
ABOUT COAL PRICES,
(Winnipeg Free Press.)
A little comparison uf prices
various grades nt coal as purchased
in Western Canada may prove interesting. In Winnipeg American anthracite, all tbe way from Pennsylvania, is sold at UO.50 per tun down
to No. 2 nut size, which isretatled
at $!) per ton. American soft coal
fnr domestic purposes is sold at $8 to
$9 iier ton. Lethbridge and Taber
coal from tbe Alberta mines is sold
at $9. Souris coal brings from
$,VUU to $5.50 per ton. Canadian
anthracite does not find its way from
Banff and Bankhcad to this city.
At Moosomin, 210 miles west of
Winnipeg, Pennsylvania anthracite is
sold at *12.rui per ton and here Banff
anthracite comes into the market,
being sold at $10.50 per ton, the exact price at which Pennsylvania anthracite is sold in Winnipeg. Taber
coal is sold ■ In Moosomin at JK.50
per ton. Moosomin is 511 miles
irom Lethbridge and 703 mifes from
Banff. Moosomin is (M5 miles from
Fnrt William and tbe latter town is
some little distance frnm the Pennsylvania mines, but. of course, a
large part of tbe haul nf American
Coal fo Fori William is over the
water route.
At Moose Jaw the price of Letb-
brldgo coal is much lhe same as at
Moosomin and Banff. Anthracite is
$10.50. At both Regina and Moose
Jaw, 505 and 521, respectively, from
BanlT. the price of Canadian anthracite is the same as that of Peuinyl-
v.inia anthracite in Winnipeg.
The Saskatoon Phoenix has lately
been devoting some attention to the
coal question and makes the statement that Edmonton coal, which is
thought to be really satisfactory
domestic fuel, should he laid down
there- at $5 per ton. As the price
of l.ethbridirp coal at Tte<tfna, ts
much the same as at Winnipeg, it
would seem that Edmonton coal
wliieli would he sold at Saskatoon for
ta a ton could be sold here at not
more than $0 per ton.
In view of the fact that Western
Canadian cnal of good quality, both
bard and soft, exists hi vast deposits
iind that it can be distributed over
the vast prairies without duty restrictions, it would seem reasonable
to expect tbat people should be able
to purchase it at much less cost than
corresponding grades of Pennsylvania
coal, even taking iuto consideration
the fact that thu latter comes a
great part of the way hither over
lbe water route.
THIS TIME   NEXT YEAR.
"Trains will be running on the
fust section of the Grand Trunk
Pacific eastward from Prince Rupert by tbis time next year," is thc
statement made bv Blake Wilson, of
Burns & Co. who has just returned from a trip along the portion of
the road under construction.

Whai other town m British Columbia, not wholly dependent on metal

\ persistent rumor has been circtt-
l.ilisl nu llu- street during tbe last
l,w davs tn the effect tbat O. O.
Buchanan, lead bounty administrator,
jcither had already or would shortly
resign his appointment. It has been
impossible to obtain either conflrma-
1,1111 nr denial of Uie statement, although the lack ol evidence to the
contrary would sui-gest that tliere
must be some basis ol truth. It
Mr. Buchanan resigns, It Is probable
that Smith Curtis or F. .1. Dram
will ho his successor.
Although work Is at present confined to development great hopes an
entertained by mining men ol the
White Horse district ot B. C. It is
staled that there are enormous possibilities ol success there, and tbat
owing to the geography ol the district thc transportation difficulties
are reduced to a minimum.
Another mine that will be eleotrllM
is the Queen Victoria and the power
line Irom the talis to the mine la already complete. The working o!
mines   by electric    power Is u yet

Iho posslldlMlH in sight for this
power witb its easy regulation,

PRINCE RUPERT IN THE MAKING
(My a Settler.)
There is « saying among prospectors, "Camp on the northern coast
and commit suicide," and, indeed it
ono had to choose Mwecn life in a
dry, S'hadrless desert and lile in a
country like this, heavily timbered,
with an incessant downpour of rain,
thc desert would be preferable and
lesa depress ii it;.
We came direct here from the Nevada desert, where the sun beats down
mercilessly ou the already broiling
sand, nnd consequently one appreciated to ils full extent on Mie voyage
Irom San Francisco to Vancouver the
delightfully cool, moist air ol the Pacific ocean.
Though the weather wns perfect in
Vancouver on the evening, when we
hoardrd the steamship Camosun,
bound for Prince Knpert, we awoUe
the next morning to find ourselves hi
a horrible misty drizzle which continued throughout our journey.
The trip from Vancouver takes two
days and nights, and presents no particular attractions. The course is
through thc narrow channels between
the islands that abound on this
coast and the mainland. The only
time the open sea is approached is at
Queen Charlotte Sound, where the
water is rough and choppy. The
two or three small settlements at
which the boat called are mainly interesting for the display of totem,
poles which the Indians fix in front of
their cabins.
We arrived at Prince Uupert about
It p.m. A larger crowd was waiting
on the docks Ior our arrival than we
expected to see, considering that it
was pouring with rain, and our
spirits were somewhat cheered by the
sight of two or three nicely built
frame bouses and the twinkle of lights
in thc windows of other buildings
which seemed to be distributed over
quite a large area.
Electric lights were being used
everywhere, and an electric sign or
two gave a cheerlul aspect to the
place. We were steered up to the
Hotel Premier, which had that night
been opened for the first time, and
was in a state of wet paint and in-
fompletion. But it was the best
that eou'd be obtained thai, and
still lives up to its name, though I
expect it will soon have to play
second fiddle to. the Grand Trunk
Pacific hotel now that it has opened.
We turned out the next mornint to
sec tlie town and face the rain once
more.
Prince Rupert is an interesting
specimen of a metropolis in the ma'*-
ing. Today it ts nothing more than
a small group of wooden houses, with
lootpaths for streets and planks (or
pavements, but in the near future it
will become possibly the most Important city on the P.iciflc coast.
It is one day nearer the Atlantic
coast, and 500 miles nearer Japan,
than Vancouver, and thc railway
which links it with the cast passes
through tbe greatest wheat-growing
country in the world.
l.i.* Grand Trunk Pacific railway,
which has tl. i,U\i to make Prince
Uupert its western terminal, has no
desire to build up a mushroom city.
I nlike many 'boom" towns in Western America, its growth will be
mora gradual and more substantial.
The (irand Trunk Pacific owns three-
fourths of the town, ami thc provincial government the other fourth.
Huilding lots arc not yet on sale.
The tlate of the formal "opening"
when settlers can purchase land and
erect business houses and dwellings
without further formality, has been
postiwned several times.
Main imrsons have come here with
the intention of locating, but the
majority have gone away again to
wait for a more favorable opportun.
Ity. The railway authorities have
been doing their hest to discourage
settlers nt present, refusing to allow
them even to pitch tents, and only
allowing a fnvorcd lew to do business.
In appearance the future metropolis
of the Northwest Is an uneven, rather
hilly tract of 2,000 acres, cleared of
limber. A large harbor, equal to
any on the Pacific coast, and a dock
a quartet of a mile long, and accommodating the deepest draught-
vessel, will be constructed. Thero
are already here n branch ot thc
Canadian Hani, of (c,mmereee. a customs office, post office, and a provincial police station, all of them, save
tlit! bank, being accommodated ln
tents.
There are, of course, no streets,
and horses cannot be used. Narrow
footpaths covered with planks are
laid through thc principal highways.
A smalt tramway line haa been constructed for hauling freight up trom
thc steamship quay, and at the other
end ot this tram line is the hotel.
Curiously enough, the usual (amine
prices do not prevail in Prince Rupert. Some time ago lodgings were
advertised for 25c. a night, but now
I tbe sign is displayed "Lodgings
free." Thc hotel proprietor has a
largo restaurant, and he colts three
meals'for 11.00, with a bed for the
night thrown In.
The hotel is a large, plain structure, divided Into compartments, each
containinr; six hunks, and opening into a broad passage. The only stipulation is that visitors must furnish
1 their own blankets.
| The construction ot the railway is
proceeding steadily, and laborers arc
badly needed. Owing to the prevailing bad weather and low wages—
$2.50 a day—It Is difficult to secure
workmen.    Considering that the man
must pay H a day for hoard, and
ihal bometimes they cOnnotwork
more than' two or three days ;i week,
they cannot he blamed for n.-t en-
(tluisinn out the prospect. Tlie IjIi
orers must pav ;i provincial tax of
$.1, and a hospital fee of $1 which
[sums are deducted from their wane-*:.
The soil is excellent, and grass
j*E,rows plentifully in the open spaces in
■the town- A small stream empties
i'iirto the harhur, up which the salmon
'have lieen runnins in enormous num-
bers. so that in places il is impos-
silile to throw a book and line into
the water without catchin-' one
Trout are also very plentiful, ,tu -
deer arc quite numerous.
In fact, were it not for tbe contin
ued rainy weather this would tie an
ideal spot in which tti live. But
after all, not one ut us is hen- fm
pleasure, The rain will not Impede
the progress ol commerce, noi cho'.;e
this wonderful natural outlet Ior the
produce of a meat and growing country.
Commerce h.u- built all the gnat (i
ins,  and   coniinerej!  will    build  Ihis
one.     It  is prophesied" that in    two
ears this tract of water-soak id ter-
torv   will   have    a    population   of
200,0(10.

Similar complaints have been received as to the quantity ot defaced
and smooth silver coin in circulation.
Here again the department Is always
ready to convert old silver into new.
All the recipient has to do is tu take
the old silver to a bank or to the
assistant receiver general and demand new coin lor it and he will get
it.
The government has taken power to
itsell to redeem any silver worn
smooth by usage and any such silver
is in due course returned to Ottawa,
re-melted and eventually coined aga n.
The new branch of the royal mint has
proved quite useful in this respect*—
that It enables the government to always have an ample supply of new
coinage on hand whereas there was
always the possibility under the old
svstem, when silver was coined in
London, that a time might come
when there would he a shortage in
Canada.

TAYLOR   LEAVING NELSON.
(Kootenay Liberal.)
Tho definite announcement this past
week by Mayor Taylor that he will
be leaving Nelson to permanently reside in Vancouver has been received
with much regret by the citizens of
Nelson, although ft bas not come unexpectedly as It had been rumored for
somo time. Mr. Tavlor hns been
identified with the city for eleven
years past and during the past year
has occupied the highest posilion uf
honor In the gift of the city.
It is not too much to say that
Mayor Taylor's term uf office will
long be remembered In tbe history ol
tho affairs of tho city, bv reason of
the cleaning up of the matters in
dispute over the power plant and the
'commencement of    the second   unit.
i Mayor Taylor will be much missed
and Nelson's loss will he Vancouver's gain.
It Is a remarkable fact that within
the year Nelson   will have lost    at
paper as described and it is with
confidence in his ability to render the
publication of such a weekly news-
required service to the public that
wo as!( that the interest of our patrons he continued to him.

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

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER.
ALONE WITH MOTHER
Do not we all remember with pleasure the days wlu-n "the others" were
uut. or we, perhaps, nut perfectly
well, anil mother hnd us in her
drawing mom, nr work room, or
took ns out for ii little walk alone?
Noi that w« did not love to romp
and play. Nol that we did not appreciate to the lull 1lie picnics and
other family expeditions whieh took
place from timr to time; but there
was enjoyment of - verv different,
deeper sort in those quiet times
with mother, th» remembrance ol
wliich has lasted half a lifetime,
i There is n very real danger that the
I mother ol a tarRC family mav never
fully come to know her children, and
U.iin that Influence over them lor
kood Individually which is so desirable lhat everv mother should have.
Wo do not hesitate to Bay that it is
absolutely Impossible for a woman
I lu become ibe confldnrl and friend ot
her clilldren unless she weekly—nay,
ihtilv—sptml     Homo short  time alone
With eaeli Onlv in lh;s wav can
'.ieh child feel the security of bis
T her ownership of that precious
nothr. The stern realities of life
permit only short seasons of ncrea-
tion, and it is only hv planning Judiciously the arrangements of lime and
divisions of labor tliat - busy mother
ean insure a child bis rlfibtlul portion of her company.
MAKING HOME HAPPY.
Lot everv parent- insl ill into the
minds of the children tlte principles
of self-sacrifice, cheerfulness, Rcnoro-
sity and making others happy—make
home so attractive that thc boys
and Kir's will find more pleasure there
than elsewhere. Q-lve the hoys a
pretty room; pictures anil ornaments
have a tendency to refine them. Hive
your children pond and wholesome
Imoi.'s for the character ol a child
is ureal ly influenced hv the books be
reads. After reading the boo'c of a
noble and unselfish man, the children
will try to emulate it. Music nnd
flowers "brighten the home. An interesting game will aid much to the
lea-sure of an evening. Reading
aloud is both pleasant nnd instructive. Let the conversation at the
table always ho bright and cheerful.
And just here, let, us sav, cultivate, an
excellent deportment at tbe table always, for however polish d you may
be, if your table manners are neglected they will surely botrav you.
Lot each'member of the household do
all in his power to make bome the
brightest and happiest place on earth.
A girl who is brought up to earn
her own living never will "iust settle
down tn nothing." She will understand the value of money, having
earned It, and ean rive her husband
wise counsel and sympathy in his
business difficulties. She can take
entire charge of thc money expended
for the house and do it in such a
business-like Way that it, will give
ber husband infinite satisfaction. Sbe
an earn a little something for hcr-
elT perhaps and at least she Will
have the comfort of knowing that
whatever happens, she will tall on her
feet. Ii her husbaml dies, she will be
able to do something toward the
support of herself and children. And
wo think a woman who bas sense
antl intelligence enough to he sell supporting is alwavs more respected by
iier husband and everyone.
There is d vast difference between a
bouse and a home. The house is hut
a building and furniture, tbt- outward
.-belter and the gather ng place ol
the household. The home indicates
the Kindly family affection, the
thoughtful care, ready sympathy,
mutual confidence, and trust of the
members. A true home breathes the
atmosphere of love. \ child should
bo made to leel that bis home is indeed a bome. the happiest place in the
world, not merely an outward shelter
aud a resting place, bill a center of
enjoyment, sanotlficd and purified by
'ove, the thought and lemeinbrance of

good show carrying ofi gold medals
and l'l subsidiary medals at the colonial fruit exhibition which was oprn-

CRANBROOK GET WISE.
(Revelstoke Mail-Herald.)
Dear Sir: At the Birmingham
Great Annual Chrysanthemum show,
opened here on November 10th, there
is a huge British Columbia government apple exhibit ol some hundreds
of boxes of the luscious fruit- from
different parts of the province, and 1
regret to say that not one single box
hears thc name ol a Revelstoke
grower.
From time to time you have advocated in the columns of the Mail-
Herald thc necessity and desirability
of advertising the advantages ol Itevelstoke from an immigrant's point
ot view; and as the majority ol emigrants come trom this country it
seems to mo highly desirable that
.something from the town should be
.xhihit'Hi from time to time as occasion arises.
As an old Revelstoke inhabitant 1
contess it Imrt my pride to see such
a thriving town unrepresented, and 1
am writing this solely to point out
to the people ot Revelstoke lhat to
obtain their share of thc right kind
ol immigrant they must make known
iheir advantages on tbis side ot tho
water.
1 might mention that Barrows, the
leading provision merchants in Birmingham, have purchased every single
British Columhia apple exhibited,
Apologizing for encroaching on your
valuable space, I remain dear sirs,
Your obedient,
John Gill Cooksey,

The great event in every young
man's life is las awakening. There
conies a time when he's aroused Irom
the dreamy carelessness of boyhood
bv the opening possibilities of lite.
If ho thi'ii drops inlo iulilTerence and
!ieirins life in nn easy, shiftless wav.
he fritters away his chancis. It he
comes to a deep, earnest purpose to
be bis best- and do his best, he arriv-
s early at the highest rank among
ipials in business, profession or
trade. Enthusiasm leads him to attempt the seemingly impossible.
Energy wlll achieve tne marvelous.
Effort will seize tiaiisctndeiit leader-
hip in the chosen sphere. These
forces in youth look forward, while
age looks backward. They make
couth radically vrnluresome, while
xite becomes i-onsen n1ivi.lv cautious.
Youth may make mistakes, hut is do-
ng something. Age less active, may
he less mistaken, ll is well for enthusiasm and enemy to be guarded
by experience Imt nol to be paralyzed
by lear.
Could He who promised our burdens
hould he light if wc trusted In Him,
iiid in the matchless sermon on the
mount, warned his disciples to take
no thought ol what they should eat,
and rebuked Martha because she was
fretful and cross mid all out of sorts
in trying to get up a feast tor him,
have any approval of tbe ''much
serving," the relays of china and silver, and the ceremonious attendance
of tlm present day, or a word of
commendation tor the cheerless,
worrying Marthas, who bake and
brew, nnd fry and stew, and wear
themselves out witb self imposed
catering for morbid appetites.
When economy becomes thc chief end
and aim of existence, a sort ot domestic god, hetore which all must how
down, the happiness, of thc home is
likely to be sacrificed. Every expenditure Hint would give pleasure is
hold in abeyance until such a time
as Ibe family feel that they "can afford it," und as a rule, this time
never comes, and the pleasure is re-
limpiishe-d.
Kings may rule nations, yet woman's deft hand may prepare tho

MONKEYS,     SQUIRRELS      DENTISTS IN AFRICA.
Chicago, Nov. 23.—Monkeys and the
large gray squirrels that overrun the
jungles of Africa are their own dentists. They fill each other's teeth
with consummate skill and often kill
an aching nerve.
At least this is what Dr. L. Fran'*
Derby Pierce, ol West Itoxbury,
Mass., says, and he ls going to lecture before Chicago dentists on the
subject.
Dr. Pierce, who spent several years
in tho jungles ot Africa, says that
monkeys and squirrels lmve discovered
a blue clay, much the same in color
as that which covers the diamond
fields and In this clay is a large percentage ol creosote. When tho animals have the toothache they plaster
this clay into the cavity as a remedy.
The creosote often kills the offending nerve,

A meeting ot the Farmers' Institute
held in the provincial government
building on Friday night last, was
attended by an audience which, il
not, as large as could have been wished, fully made up for the lack ot
numbers by thu Interest disolayed.
.Mr. IV. .1. Brandrith, of Ladner,
secretary oi the British Columbia
Fruit Growers association was the
speaker, and, as he has had a We experience in growing and marketing
fruit on a large scale, a rery profitable couple at hours was spent.
Amongst other matters taken up was
the question ot summer pruning,
which was strongly advocated by
the speaker in cases ot too rank
growth, and the subject ol interposing
rows of self-fertile varieties ot apples, in tbe case of planting large
tracts ol sell-sterile varieties.
It is to be regretted that on several occasions whero thc department

that greater advantage has not been
taken ol the chance to hear these

value to  the truit grower.
It should he remembered that these

TIIE MASQUERADE BALL,
The masquerade hall at the Auditorium last Thursday was In every

Moran as "Miss Columbia." Mrs. D.
.1. Elmer, as a "Cow Girl," Miss
Patmore, as "Pansy Olrl," Mrs. It.

Suffice it to say that the ball was
one great big success.
AT THE GYM.

BAILING ROBBERY
GREAT NORTHERN TRAIN HELD
UP NEAR SPOKANE.
(Spokesman-Review.)
(ireat Northern passenger train No.
4 was held up by three masked
lu ml its about a mile ami a half east
ol Hillyard shortly belore midnight
last niRbt. Tbe presence ol mind of
the fireman prevented the express car,
which is supposed to bave contained a
la rue sum, Including & $20,000 shipment from Spokane, from being robbed. When he was ordered to dismount Irom his cab and cut oft the
baggage, express and mail cars from
the other coaches he cut two, but
left the express car. which was the
last of tbe tliree, ami thus saved tlie
treasure.
The train had been out of llillyant
but a few minutes when tbe engineer
and fireman were surprised to see
ibree men, two of them masked,
crawling down fnun tfte tender.
Willi drawn revolvers Uiey ordered
the engineer to stop the train immediately.
lie obeyed, nnd as soon as tin-
train came to a slop all dismounted
from the cab, tlie trainmen leading
tbe way, covered with tbe weapons Of
ilie bandits.
The engineer was left standing with
two of the holdups while tlie third
ju'com pan iod tbe Iireman back) part
way while ho was obeying the orders
to uncouple the ears. Wben he had
fooled tlte thugs by flitting oil two
of the ears Instead of three, the
three bandits boarded the engine and
Matted oft down tlw track, leaving
the fireman and engineer with tbe
"dead" train.
After proceeding about two miles
the bandits, who evidently are old
railroad men, judging from the manner In which tbey handled Uie locomotive, stopped the online and
went through tbe mail ear, obtaining
a considerably quantity of registered
mail.
After hurriedly committing thc robbery they again got onto the engine
.nul liiiniiit to Mea-I. distant only a
lew miles from the scene of thn
robbery, where thev slopped the en*
glno, jumped from ibe cab and with
theii booty hastened to a buggy that
was there waiting for tbem.
A resident o( Mead, who happened
to tie near the track when tbe engine
arrived, saw thc men hurry to the
hiiggy, but did not suspect that there
was anything wrung, He declares
that there was a fourtb man awaiting Uie trio at Mend and that in tlw
Lui ry and confusion of making their
getaway he was left behind. Tbat
was the last seen ol tho desperadoes.
Wlien the en&lnemen informed tbe
conductor of tbe holdup he hurried to
HHlyard ami reported to Spokane.
The sheriff was notified, and be qutck-
h gathered a posse and started lor
the scene In a switch engine, which
will be used to bring ttie train back
to Ilill vard. It is supposed that tbe
bandits, with their team, drove
rapidly toward Sookane, lelt the rig
and then mnde their way into the
cilv on foot. The police were noti-
llod ol the daring robbery and the entire shift -was awaiting ttie appearance ol the men 'at an early hour
this morning.
It is the belief of tin trainmen
that two ol tbe deeporadoes won
falsa whiakara.    Ou la declared    aa
having a red moustache.     Ho     waa
the one that was unmasked.
Another, who is described as tall
and slim, bad a bushy black beard,
which the engineer and fireman declare was false.
Tho bandit of whom the best view
was obtained is described as being
about 5 Teel 8 incites tall, Bandy complexion, heavy set and weighing about
ino pounds. He wore a sack coat.

WM. BURTON HURT.
Conductor Wm. Burton was quite
badly injured hy walking off tho top
of a box car in the Moyie tunnel
Sunday night. lt seems that Conductors Burton aud Shackleton had a
meet at Cline. Both had trains
loii£,vi- than the siding at Cllae and
they were compelled to resort to
what is known in railway parlance
as "sawing by." Mr. Burton left
part of bis train and started
through tbe tunnel witb tbe balance
and was to proceed far enough for
Shackleton to back down and com.
plete the job of switching the balance
of Burton's cars out. of tbe way. For
some reason Burton's engineer stopped right in the tunnel, and the
smoke from Uie engine choked tilings
up so it was impossible to sec a
lantern or give a signal. Burton
was seated on the top of the last
car ol his train and wben they
stopped he heard the other train
backing down on him. Fearing there
might be some one In Shackleton's
cahoofio who would he injured in a
eollisiun Air. Burton started tor the
end of bis car to climb down the
ladder and meet Shackleton js train
in time to avoid an accident. In the
utter blackness be misjudged the
length of the car and walked off the
end, sinking among the rocks ol the
t imnell, breaking and bruising the
bones of thc left loot aod turning thc
ankle of the rtgnt loot. In addition
to this he received internal injuries
and was badly bruised on his thigh.
Notwithstanding his -injuries Mr.
Burton managed to reactfi the caboose
of Sharklvtons train in time to attract tbo attention of tho brakeman
by shouting, and the latter "pulled
the alr,n thus avoiding a collision.
Mi. Hai ton was brought to Cranbrook and taken to his home, where
lie is resting quite easilj undei thc
cam of Dr. King, but it will be
sevfral weeks before he will be able
ta get around.

A New England play entitled
"Along the Kennebec," will be present wl at the Auditorium on Saturday, December 19th. This company
carries all its own scenery (ot tlie

said to be extraordinarily pretty and
well appointed. The play itself is a
comedy pure and simple, with an absence of ili'-ap sensationalism but an
.abundance of good clean comedy,
|something that we can laugh at and
! not understand afterwards what we
lauirhcd at. The funny duel scenu
in tbe third act is said to be a
pretty good cure for the blues for
the evening at least, and the splendid orchestra will please all lovers
of good music.
