CRANBROOK,  B.C.,  THURSDAY,   A1ARCH   25th.   1926
Accident Has
Fatal Results
Maurice  Godderis,  Thrown
From Horse, Never Recovers Consciousness
Coming with a suddenness thnt
numbed all those who knew the family, and causing a shuck even in thin
community, where it seems there is
more than a plethora of startling fatalities, the news of the accident
which bo fell Maurice Godderis on
.Sunday morning last, caused a profound impression throughout th<
eity. Fourteen years of age, he was
an extremely likeable boy, and as he
stood on the threshhold of young
manhood, his waa indeed a life showing much promise.
Ue was the eldest son of Mr. and
Mrs. 0. Godderis, who conducts a
dairy a mile or two north of this
city. He had been a good deal before the public, especially during the
past few months, following the success of the junior stock judging contests last fall, which were held in
conjunction with the coast fairs,
when the teams from the Cranbrook
district stood so high, the Individual
members of the team all doing exceptionally well. By a strange irony
of fate, it had been practically de
cided to hold a public meeting shortly, when the medals and trophies won
on that occasion were to be presented.
The accident took place shortly
after eleven o'clock on Sunday morning last. Maurice was riding along
on a road near the old brick yard
with a number of companions, when
it would seem that his horse got on
a piece of ice that was concealed by
a muddy covering. Losing his footing the horse threw its rider, Maurice
being pitched to the ground, and in
falling struck the side of his head
on the hard ground with such force
us to render him unconscious, a state
from which he never recovered up to
the time of his death that evening
at the St. Eugene Hospital.
It was quickly seen by his friends
that his condition was very serious,
and they set about to summon aid.
Mn and Mrs. Godderis were notified
by one of the boys, who went over
to their home nt the ranch not very
far away. Dr. MacKinnon was summoned, and the injured lad was removed to the hospital. He had suffered injuries to his head and his
face, and from the effects of the former he never rallied, though everything possible was done for him.
An exceedingly bright boy and
very highly regarded by everyone
who knew him, Maurice was the
eldest of the family of three, and
leaves a younger brother and sister,
as well ns his father and mother, to
mourn him. He wns thoroughly interested in the work of the farm,
and won a high degree of success in
his work on the junior judging teams
that were taken to the coast last
summer, under the direction of Mr.
Angus Hay, the district agriculturist.
He won high awards in the crop and
poultry classes, and in the junior
stock judging at the New Westminster provincial fair at thnt time, and
was also the winner of the B.C. Poultry Association Cup for judging at
the Vancouver fair, and the stock
judging events there also.
He had been of considerable assistance on tbe ranch at home, and
was known to many in this city for
, bis cheerfulness and courtesy when
they came in contact with him.
In such eases there must ever be
tbe question why a budding life uf
Stich rare promise should be so suddenly smitten down, nnd to this the
only answer lies in a willingness to
bow to (hi1 dictates of an all-wise
Providence, with a confidence that
for all things there is a reason,
i bough present limitations often
make it seem inscrutable.
The remain! were removed to the
Undertaking purlors, and on Tuesday evening a large number of
friends looked their last upon the
composed features which had set in
death at a time which seemed but
little past life's sunrise. But as some
flowers have a lustrous beauty in the
bud, so Home lives are destined to
give forth their sweetness in the
years of youth.
The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon from St. Mary's
Church, where a large number of
friends gathered tu pay their last respects to the memory of the deceased.
Kev. Father Murphy spoke very feelingly with regard to his passing, making reference to the uncertainty of
life and the importance of being prepared. He pnid tribute to the boy's
character and noted that on the day
on which he met with the accident
he had seen to it that he had attended
to his religious duties, having served
at Mass that morning. Miss Francis
Drummond rendered sympathetically
the aolo "Know Ye That Angel."
A large mmbn of fristt* follaw-
With the passing of the late Mrs.
A. C. Bowness a bright light has been
suddenly blown out in the lives of
those who knew her intimotely, Her's
was a disposition which had to be
understood through intimate association, rather than through a passing
or surface acquaintance. The writer
has hail the advantages of a close
friendship, covering some 2.1 years,
in which to discern the bent of her
Inclinations as reaching out of the
unseen facta of life. Possessions
und human honors had not the power to elate ns hud her vision to see
beyond and above the passing to the
eternal. This revelation was not
given to the crowds, as such revelations seldom are. Restful and gentle in demeanour, to sit in silence
with her was to understand her, as
she wanted to be understood. Her's
was her very own individuality, with
courage and conviction enough to
hold to it, nnd perhaps notwithstanding outside opinion.
In the loss of a loving wife and
home-maker, Mr. Bowness and family have the sincere sympathy of
those who know him in both public
and private life. The community of
Cranbrook will also miss her philanthropic administrations on behalf of
all charitable activities, both public
and private, to which she always so
unselfishly contributed.

Welcome to
Hon. R. R. Bruce Gets Splendid Reception On Visit to
Windermere Home
In the Herald report last week of
the performance of "Ttye Beauty
Shop," mention of the orchestra was
inadvertently omitted. This is much
regreteted as the service which they
rendered was invaluable to the success of the performances. Those
taking part certainly deserve the
thanks of all. It is the opinion of
several music lovers that some step*'
should be made to organize a Cranbrook orchestra, as a body of this
kind is a considerable asset to any
city. A few years ago, starting with
far less promise than would be the
case in Cranbrook, an orchestra was
started in Penticton which today is
much famed throughout that district
and the interest taken may be judged
from the fact that for several yean
members would travel to and from
a distance of thirty miles to attend
the practices and  perfromancee.
That the residents of Cranbrook
are sympathetic to such a society was
evinced a year or so ago when a
leader then in the city had the support of the school board and community organization. The people
did not begrudge the spending of
their own or city money for the furtherance thereto and doubtless if an
effort wns again made it would re-
ire support.
( Special to The Herald)
lnvermere, B.C.—March 20—The
first home coming of His Honor R.
Randolph Bruce since his extended
visit to the Old Country and his appointment to the distinguished post
of Lieutenant-Governor of the province gave to his muny friends and
admirers in the Lake Windermere
district their opporutnity of spontaneously showing their appreciation
His reception by the community
was entirely an informal affair and
to those who gathered it took more
of the form of a large house party
than anything else whichc might be
pictured, with Mr. Bruce as a particular guest of honor.
When definite word came as to
when he would arrive the finishing
touches were put to the program
From the time of his arrival in Golden communication was kept up by
telephone until he passed within the
division. Shortly after crossing the
border- of the Windermere mining
division's line a larg^e number of
prominent residents and officials of
the Lake Windermere district pro>
ceeded in decorated cars for some
m"es down the highway to the north
and stopped his car and informally
greeted him in the wide open spaces
and the forest grove after which
they formed in procession and returned to his home. As far us the weather was concerned it was perfect.
The sun shone brightly and there
was just a sufficient twang in the air
to make one remember that though
for this year it was early spring yet
the season of winter was still with

The more formal greetings by the
populace took place in the evening

42 Mills Is
City Tax Rate
Estimitei Adopted By City
Council At Their Last
Thursday evening last a special
meeting of the city council was held
in the council chamber to consider
the estimates for the year and to
strike the tax rate for 1926*. Those,
present were: Mayor Roberts in the
chair; Alderman MacPherson, Alderman Fink, Alderman Flowers, Alderman Cameron, Alderman Jackson.
Several delegations were present,
who on motion of Aldermen Fink and'
Flowers were heard.
Grantt Asked For
Mr. Geo. J. Spreull, chairman of
the Cranbrook Public Library board1
was present and on behalf nf the
board pointed out to the council that
as a result of a special canvass that
had been made for membership considerable success had been met with.
He renewed his request for a giant
of $300.00 to be paid in monthly instalments to take care of overhead
charges for the year 102(1,
Representing the Cranbrook Amateur Athletic Assoc, Messrs. F. Constantino and G. T. Moir addressed
the meeting with reference to the
activities of that body for the past
year, and presented an application
for the rental of the arena rink for
the year ending May 1st 1027, together with their cheque for $100.00
to apply on the rental. They also
asked that the council consider the
matter of putting in sanitary toilets
at a cost of approximately $250.00
and also intimated that the balance
of the rental would be paid when the
season 1026-1927 opened up.
On behalf of the Board of Trade
Mr. W. H. Wilson stated that at an
executive meeting held recently they
had decided to recommend to the
council that the boulevarding on
Baker street be not proceeded with.
On behalf of the same organization
Mr. M. A. Beale presented the request for the annual grant of $25.00
per month to take care of the secretary'* salary, and also that an amount
be included in the grant sufficient to
take care of the expense of lighting
hte mineral specimen case at the Post
Office corner. His worship the
Mayor intimated to the various
speakers that the matter of their
various requests would have the con-
ideration of the council.
The council went into the consideration of the estimates for the year,
every item of expense being very
carefully considered before Us inclusion therein. Finally the following estimated expenditures for the
year 1926 were adopted on motion
of Aldermen Fink and Cameron, and
by-law No. 207, being the Rate Bylaw of 1920 was given its first, second and third reading, on motion
of Aldermen Jackson and Flowers,

Provision for the grants when they
are properly authorized by the council having been included in the estimates, the tax rate was accordingly
fixed in the bylaw at 42 mills on the
dollar, which is'an increase of two
and a half mills over last year, made
necessary by larger school board estimates for unpreventable causes.
Improving at  Hospital
Friends are pleased to learn that
the condition of both Mr. and Mrs.
Sleightholm, patients at the St. Eugene Hospital, is much improved.
Rapid progress toward* recovery is
now being made.
Members of J, D. HcNiven's hoard
which will administer the new ;
vincial minimum wage law, will come
into the interior of the province
shortly to investigate conditions In
the interior lumber industry. A
general conference of interior lumbermen to meet the board personally
at Cranbrook, is being arranged now
under the auspices of the Mountain
Lumbermen's Association, Mr. Mc-
Niven stated this week. As soon a**
the lumbermen are ready to get to
gether the board will be prepared to
meet them and discuss wuge matters.
"We want a good deal more information before we fix the date on
which the new law will go into effect
in the lumber industry," Mr. Mc-
Niven has explained. "We have not
made up our minds yet what minimum wuge should be fixed either,
and will not do so until we have completed our investigations."
The proposals being made Include
a provision to establish a minimum
wage for the payment of lumber industry employees, ■ 50c per hour
being spoken of by the labor movements which are interested in the
matter. At the Coast the matter of
the employment of Oriental labor
enters largely into the discussion of
the question, and it has been seriously argued that enforcing the payment of such a minimum wage to
lumber mill employees, irrespective
of whether they arc white or Asiatic,
would have the effect of eliininnting
the latter, the contention being that
the only factor in favor of the Oriental is that he can be hired for
less, but that he has a capacity lower than white labor doing the same
work. Therefore, the advocates of
the new measure state, the tendency
would be for the mill men to hire
white help, so as to get maximum
production, so long as the same rate
of pay had to be given.
The lumber operators have not yet
been given an opportunity to express
their side of the minimum wage ques
tion, and it is presumably for this
purpose that a meeting is proposed
to be held in this city at some future
date. The government stands committed to the principle of the measure, and a likely outcome of the matter seems to be that if it is put into
effect, it will be with some jokers
tied to it such as the eight-hour act
has, in the form of exemptions for
various reasons and localities.
Saturday evening last a very pleasant function was held iu the Masonic Hall when friends of Mr. and Mrs.
J, K. Warren gathered to enjoy a
social evening with them previous to
their impending departure from
Cranbrook for their former home in
Killam, Alta. There were over
sixty present and the time passed
quickly. Dancing was the main
avenue of pleasure during the evening, Mr. Bruce Robinson capably of
flclating at the piano. The dance
numbers were interspersed with vocal
solos by several of the guests present, nil of which were much enjoyed.    Those    favoring    were    Mrs.
Brumby, Mrs. M. Forrest, Miss F.
Noble, Mis. Norgrove und Miss F.
Paul. Refreshments at about 11
p.m. contributed in no small way to
the pleasure of the evening, following which Rev. B. ('. Freeman, in a
few well chosen words, expressed
what he believed were the sentiments
of those present. He felt that in
the departure of Mr. and Mrs. Warren that Cranbrook was suffering a
distinct loss. Mrs. Warren, through
her musical talent hud made her
presence felt in Crunbrook both in
her professional work and through
her contributions to musical programs on various occasions. Mr,
Warren had also been willing to help
in musical numbers when called upon.
Air. Warren, on behalf of Mrs.
Warren, appropriately responded,
saying that it would always be a
pleasure to remember their many
friends   In  Cranbrook.
'For They are Jolly Good Fell-
lows" was sung with a vim, and af-
anoi her period of dancing the
pi asant evening was brought to a
lose with the singing of An id Lang
Syne. .Mr. and Mrs. Warren and
family expect to leave on the 28th
of March for Killam.
An appropriation of $200 has been
granted by the Minister of Public

Last night (Wednesday) the Women's Missionary Society of the
United Church were responsible for
u huge number of people having a
very pleasant evening when thjeir
"Hobby Social" was held. Each person attending war supposed to wear
something on their person, indicating what was their pet diversion, and
everyone present was to guess or
figure out the hobbies of the others.
That these were many and varied
might be assumed from (he fket
that among thirty contestants only
two were similar. That some people I pe
have peculiar notions as to what is
a hobby may be judged from the fact
that one lady gave as her's "Darning
Sox"—just think of it. Another of
the female persuasion claimed that
"Banking Money" gave her the
greatest thrill, while another of the
same sex with a dollar bill pinned
next to her heart considered that
"Spending Money" was the most
pleasant pastime. That in at least
one family harmony prevailed was
evident from the fact that Mr.
Stocks thought that "The Flapper"
could best drive away dull care, while
Mrs. Stocks doubtless to be obliging
confessed that "Raising Chickens"
was her chief delight, (she claimed
it kept her husband from being
broody). One lady liked to spend her
time making doughnuts, while another liked  "Calling"  best, similar in
Laid To Rest
On Sunday
Large Concourse of Friends
Pay Last Respects to Late
Mrs. A. C. Bowness
Sunday afternoon at 2..10 Knox
Presbyterian Church was filled to
overflowing wi;h those who desired
to pay their Inst respects to the memory of the late Mrs. A. C. Bowness.
The front pew wag occupied by
the family and relatives, who mourned the loss of a loving wife, a devoted mother and an affectionate
sister, while feeling the loss but little
less keenly were the members of the
Pythian Sisters from Cranbrook and
Kimberley,' who by their presence
were paying a last tribute to their
beloved Most Excellent Chief. A
delegation from the Native Daughters was also present.
The funeral service, which was
taken by the pastor, Rev. M, S.
Blackburn, was marked by its sincerity and depth of feeling. The
singing of appropriate hymns and the
reading of comforting passages of
scripture and the words of consolation given, combined to make the
service one appreciated by mourners
and friends alike. For the subject
of his remarks the minister chose
from tbe U.'lrd Psalm the pnssage,
"Though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil, for thou art with me." The
peaker drew attention to the significance of the change in the person
used by the psalmist in relation to
his association to Christ, how that
after telling of the many things
which he had done for him, "He"
changes the wording to be "Thou
art with me," noting the similarity
between the grasping of the hand
of the mother by a child in going
through a dark passage. Quoting
also from Longfellow, "The Psalm of
Life," the speaker in touching terms
referred to the life of the departed
one, referring to the many footprints
in the sands of time which she had
left. These footprints can be seen
in the organizations and societies to
which ahe contributed, tbe many
acmee when *he vi.-itwd and the families she helped to care for. He believed that her passing should be a
message for everyone to strive to
live that they might make the world
better for having been here.
At the conclusion of the service,
the members of the Pythian Sisters
~ mple. and the Native Daughters
filed past the coffin slowly in a
-ilent tribute to their sister who but
a few days previously hod been
among them.

E. H. Small, Jas. Conroy and Dr. J.
W. Rutledge. In the concourse of
friends who were attending the
funeral were many from out of town
points, including Kimberley, Lumber-
ton Moyie, Fort Steele and elsewhere.
Among the relatives from out of
town arriving for the funeral were
Warren Bowness, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Bowness, who has been at Portland, Ore., attending school; Lee
Simms, nephew of Mr. Bowness, and
formerly of this city, who also came
from Portland; and .Messrs. Jos. and
Marsh Whitehead, brothers of the
late Mrs.  Bowness, from  Winnipeg.
No greater tribute to the memory
of any one could be hod than that
accorded to the deceased lady, when
her funeral was attended by every
walk of life in the city and district.
It thus gave unmistakeable evidence
that her Jife had not been lived selfishly, but for others. That those
with whom she had come in contact
during the course of her round of
life cherished the memory of her
friendship and help in high esteem
was abundantly clear from the
wealth of floral tributes that were
sent. Three cars carried these ninth
yet eloquent tokens of sympathy and
regard to the cemetery, and the lost
resting place of Mrs. Bowness in
the city cemetery was heaped with
the beautiful symbols that spoke the
l*neuag* of sorrow. Thus a figure

How many players thoroughly understand the type of hand that justifies
a fourth hand bid, when the first three
players have passed ? One expert claima
that many more games are lost by failure lo bid in this position than is generally realized, If such is the case, what is
t lie real lest of a son ml fourth hand bid?
Must nf the authorities seem to stress
the Importance of having a game-going
liaml before opening the bidding fourth
hand. They say: "Don't make an original fourth hand bid unless you can go
gome." The writer is of the opinion that
this view is unsound. The real test is:
"Can I save game if I open the bidding,
Irrespective of what; my opponents may
bid?-' If you can answer that question
in the affirmative, you have a Bound
fourth hand bid but nut uthti wi*-. Why ,
wait for an overwhelming hand before
making a fourth hand bal? Always be
willing to take a chance fur game yourself if by so doing you do 11 also give
your opponents an equal chance. Here
is the rule: "No player shiuld make a
fourth hand bid unless sure of saving
gameatanybid opponents might make.
This is the real test to apply In determining whether or not you nave a justifiable, fourth hand bid.
The writer was watching one of the
great experts of the game the other
night and noted how closely he followed
the foregoing rule for fourth hand bids.
Many hands that other players would
pass out were bid by him, and not once
did he suffer a loss. Here arc two food

therefore, help for a no-trump. B, therefore, bid two no-trump and all passed.
He just made three odd and scored
game and rubber.

they should give a much better showing against their opponents in the league this season than they have done

The   Indian   Mutiny
The annals of war have no darker
page than that furnished by what
General Hflvelock described as the
"eventful crisis" which in May 1857
arose in India. It is the blackest
chapter in British military history.
India and Britain alike were startled
and stunned by the suddenness of the
rising. It came like a bolt from the
blue, yet with the disastrous consequences of a mighty convulsion. In
one day the work of Clive and Hastings, the Metcalfes and Lawrences
seemed practically undone. Horror
followed surprise as the story of the
mutineers' excesses was flashed from
East to West, accompanied by the
dispairing cry for help of the sufferers in their extremity. It was a
terrible time. The mutineers seemed suddenly transformed from men
to fiends. They were possessed by
mad craving for vengunee, which
the perpetration of no atrocity could
satisfy. The more they revelled in
bloodshed the more revolting became the forms of their fiendish
cruelly, their hellish delights putting
the direst acts of Nero himself to
the blush. It was a revolution of
the most overwhelming nature, anil
its details sent a thrill of indignation
through the civilized world.
What Led Up To It
It is well readers briefly understand the situation. The administration of Indian affairs was then in the
hands of the East India Company,
which maintained at the time a large
army, amounting to almost 250,000
men in the main, officered by Europeans, Queen's troops, but paid and
maintained by the Company; the
rest were native soldiers or Sepoy:1.
The British regiments were spread
through the Presidences of Bengal,
Madras and Bombay and were, compared with the numbers of the natives, a comparatively slender force.
Among the natives an idea has begun to prevail that in the hundredth
year after Lord Olive's great victory
at I'lassey the British power in India would cease. For a time growing discontent had been visible among
the Mohammadans. no doubt smarting under the memory and oppression of the bitter wrongs which characterized the early rule in India, and
this was increased by certain acts of
the British authorities, which were
considered to cast indignities and
humiliation upon one or two of the
great native princes. The signs of
discontent were unheeded, the European was indeed reduced, which
gave the natives hope of deliverance,
and the wave of disaffection from
caste to caste, gaining in strength as
it went. The real motive of mutiny
was the ambition of the soldiery,
spoilt, flattered and idle in the indolence of its presumed strength.
The pampered army thought nothing
too good for itself and nothing too
formidable. High caste Brahmins all
proud as lucifer, they deemed that
to them of right belonged the treasures and the empire of India.
Hampered with debt, they looked for
the day of a general spoliation.
Chafing under restraint they panted
to indulge themselves in unbridled
rapine and licence. An emblem of
agreement was secretly passed from
station to station, and from hand to
hand by which each native regiment
pledged itself to stand by its neighbor, each sepoy to stund by hi- comrade, come what might. Experienced
men saw the signs and feared something was to happen; but of its na-
was   astounding.    Against   the   !de

or   vegetables;   to   permit    bjeef   Oi ''
pork to touch his lips would be a disgrace in this world and destruction
in   the   world   to   come.    Tbe   man, I
stricken frantic by what he had been
told, flew from room to room telling
his   comrades   of   the   design   the!
Feringhees had formed against their
race.      Hindoo    and    Mohammedan
joined the belief and the story spread ,
from station to station with the ut-
most     rapidity.      Immediately     the]
flame  burst   forth.    At several  stations  the  soldiers objected   to   tlu
cartridges.    They were dealt with in
various ways, but still the disaffection spread.    At length at Marul the |wl
3rd  Native Cavalry refused  to take! ,!
the cartridges on  parade  and next"
day nearly ito of the me

and   white-faced    Feringhees,    Two!
forty-eight females, most of them
•nils from ten to fourteen, many of
them delicately nurtured ladies, and
kept them for the base purposes of
the heads of the Insurrection for u
whole week. At the end of that time
they made them strip themselves ami
gave them up to the lowest of the
I people to abuse in broad daylight in
the street of Delhi. Then they commenced the work of torturing them
Uo death, cutting off their breasts,
j fingers and noses. One lady was
■ee days in dying. They flayed the
■e of another lady, and made her
Ik naked through the streets. In
norgue some Europeans had taken
ut:e. and after days of continent, were almost beside themselves
h the torture of thirst. "Give us
ler," they cried to some Sepoys,
ul we will yield ourselves to be
on before the King." "Lay down
ir arms and you will then get wa-1
," was the reply. Their arms
'yielded up, the work of butchery be-
tran. Everyone was put to death—
light officers, eight ladies and eleven
| i hildren, Miine of the latter being
hung by the heels and brained before
their parent- eyes. At length the
I eity was completely in the hands of
the mutineers. The deposed King of
Delhi was placed on the throne and
jtnok the lead of the movement, be-
ttg supported by native princes in
iffices i ;' responsibility and trust.

The Storm Breaks
At length the spark was applied
to the well-laid mine. It had been
determined to issue the Enfield rifle
to the native troops. The cartridges
of the Enfield were lubricated with
grease and those for the rifles now
being used were made in the great
factory or laboratory at Dumdum,
few miles from Calcutta. One day
a mechanic employed at the work
asked a half-caste Brahmin for
draught of water out of his lotah, a
small brass drinking vessel, This
the Brahmin tbe Brahmin refused on
the ground that he did not know to
what caste the mechanic belonged—
caste being to the Brahmin more
precious than life itself. "You are

This was the opening of the flood being a
of mutiny and bloodshed, and sepoy- ling P<
instantly let loose all the worst pas- office
sion which savage and fanatical men
possess. The cartridges they refused
to take from the British oflicers they
now freely used against them. From
Meerul the mutineers went to Delhi,
the ancient sent of the Mogul dynasty. It was attempted tu shut the
gates against them, but too late.
They dashed into the city, and were
joined by the troops there. Mr. Fraser, the British Commissioner, was
met and hewed down by their
swords, his head being cut off and
borne through the streets in
triumph. In the palace gate they
asked for Captain Douglas, the commander of the guard, who went and
met them, but was shot dead before
he could speak. The chaplain of tin1
station they seized, and before the
eyes of his daughter, an amiable and
engaging young woman about to be
married, butchered him in cold blood,
ubsequently subjecting the poor girl
to shocking indignities, then cutting
her body to pieces. Sir Theophdus
Metcalfe, the Governor of Delhi, saved his life by secreting himself for
three days, after which ho concealed
himself for ten days in the jungle.
Others were not so fortunate. A fell
laughter of Christian inhabitants
took place. The insurgents plundered the bank und murdered Mr. Beres-
ford, the hanker, his wife and five
children, by slowly sawing their
throats with pieces of broken glass.
In pillaging the premises of the Delhi "Gazette" they hacked the printers to pieces. The British military
authorities iu the cantonments outside the city made an effort t<. quell
the disturbance but in vain. Tbe
Dehli men by a preconcerted arrangement .suddenly ru.-hed to one
side of the road, leaving the officers
on the other, so suddenly taken by

IN fixing the tax run- ;it -12 mills for this year,
which is two and a half mills higher than last
year, no apology is necessary from the city council, the entire increase being accounted for
by the larger demands of the school hoard, who in
turn have no option but lo ask for the increased
estimates, on account of somewhat heavier expenses
which cannot be sidestepped or ignored. But the
situation draws attention to the fact that the carrying on of the schools constitutes by far the biggest
part of the business of the eity of Cranbrook, when
it take> a great deal more than half of
the tax rate struck, Whether the provincial
government i^ bearing a large enough proportion of
this burden, and whether sufficient provision is made
to collect a due share of tbe schools cost from the
non-property owner whose children receive equal
benefit from lite school (with tin- ratepayer, are
questions which it was hoped the recent educational
survey would be able to include in its scope, lint
not much reference has been made to the financial
aspects of lite educational system in that report.
The fact remains that cities such as Cranbrook,
where ihe population of school age is increasing more rapidly than tin- adult population, provide problems in educational financing
that deserve individual consideration, each on their
merit, instead of the provincial government getting
by with the contribution of as small an amount as
possible on a schedule thai lias not been revised for
many years.
Perhaps it is true that school board expenditures have reached the limit for a lime, as within
the next two years or so there will lie retired some
considerable issues of debentures, including one of a
large amount for school purposes in earlier
years. But in the meantime who can say that there
will not be another addition needed to the public
school, or a larger high school building called for
imperatively ?

can get by with it take the chance and publish the
advertising relating to the "bible of tbe west,"
while those who think enough of their local merchants and the community generally to turn it down

recompense in the way of business to make up for
it from the local merchants, who as a rule know
little enough of what the newspaper may he trying

Tuesday evening the ladies of the
Women's Mission Circle of the Baptist church again gave the missionary
play. "The Pill Box." This was a
repeat performance asked for by
those who were not fortunate in seeing the play the first time. As was
the case with the first performance,
tbe play was well put on, and thoroughly appreciated by the large number who were present. It was
doubtless gratifying to the ladies to

On Thursday last, while unloading
a carload of Chevrolet cars, Mr. V.
Paulson, of the Kootenay Garage,
was the victim of an accident which
only by the slightest chance was not
fraught with more serious consequences than was actually the case.
It nppeurs that while lowering one
of the suspended curs from the roof
of the cur, the cur was allowed to
drop before Mr. Paulson was prepared for it, and he was caught by the
rear of the car and narrowly averted
being pinned to the floor. As it was,
it was with difficulty thut the car was
raised oil' him, when he emerged with
severe shaking up und a wound on
the top of his head. Mr. Paulson
says that while he welcomed the recent drop in the price of Chevrolet
cars, he was not much impressed with
the dropping of the cars themselves.

: speaking, is un excellent barometer
I of public attitude toward a given

general sales manager of The Nash

the public favor with which Nash and
Ajax are regarded was never more
apparent than at the present time.
Not only were the Nosh-Ajax exhibits at all shows, centres of attraction but public endrosement was
made emphatic *by a record-breaking

After April 1 the system of filing
all federal income returns to the inspector of taxation at Vancouver will
come into force. The procedure will
be the same as a year ago. During
the past year returns could be filed
with any of the fifty-two customs
collectors in the province, but under
the new arrangement, this will be
no longer possible.
Forms will be available at the end
of March, and taxpayers will have up
to the end of April in which to return them.
Brother Die* at Ottawa
John Dixon, former newspaper
man, director of publicity of the intelligence service of the nntural resources branch at Ottawa, department of the interior, died there early
this month, aged 57. Born in St.
Thomas, Ontario, he was at one time
manager of the Edmonton Bulletin.
A sister, Mrs. W. E. Ilas.em. of Cranbrook, is among the relatives he
leaves. He was a brother of the
late Mr. W. B. Dixon who died here
a few years ago.
March 24th,  1926
Editor,  Cranbrook   Herald:
Enclosed please find copy of fi
nanclal statement from the Cranbrook A, A. Association for operation
of Arena Rink during the skating
season which closed on Feb. 5th, except for a few hockey games after
that date. There being only 28 days
skating, the season was very short,
opening on January 2nd, but during
this time the rink was kept open continuously afternoon and evening.
The eity hockey league played some
2(1 games all told, the Bluebirds be-
ing the victors in the ladies' und the
Shooting Stars  in the men's game;
Splendid interest was manifested
in these games, which wene handled
by George Simpson and Ashton Powers, who deserve thanks and credit
for encouraging Canada's great winter game, there being no doubt but
that some of the boys und girls will
yvt take a place in the big teams.
Then our public school und high
school leagues should not be overlooked. Under the direction of Miss
Patterson good sport and progress
wns seen with tht* girls and boys in
the public school during the noon
hour. While the high school did not
enter a team in the city league, they
maintained interest in the game on
Saturday mornings by playing In
their own league.    The finals of the
hool league could not, however, Ite
player! at night, as done lust season,
owing to the extremely short season.
The  rink  fees hud  to be reduced
consequence of the short season,
which deprived the management from
securing sufficient profit to enable
them   to   secure   the    baseball   park
ounds   for  all  summer   activities,
:,  baseball,  lacrosse and  football.
Last year we paid the owners
$'200.00 rental, plus ? 125.00 for fixing the fence in a permanent way.
In addition to this wc spent over
$100.00 in cinders, clay und rolling
the grounds. All that we could make
from this athletic park was the $50.00
we n ceived us rental from the G.W.
V.A. for our promotion of the sports
on May 24th, and some $35.00 which
we collected from all sources in the
above mentioned sport,1;.
We have no open day that we can
put on, or to stage u big event that we
might make sufficient money to compensate us paying $.'100.00 for the
grounds this year, which amount has
been asked by the owners, they being entitled to 8 per cent plus taxes
on this property and which we
think should be forthcoming from the
various organizations, some of which
council. We ure now asking the
city to place modern toilets in the
rink, which will fill u long felt want
to men and women. When this is
completed it should make one of the
best up-to-date skating rinks in the
I might say that we hnve placed
permanent improvements in the rink
during the lust two years to the extent of S4.15.00, in addition to paying our annual rental mentioned
We wish to thank past und presort
mayors and council for their encouragement und assistance to this work,
which speaks for itself.
"Lest we forget," we would remind the good people of Cranbrook
thnt one of our boys holds the chant*
plonshlp record and cup as the best
all round athlete in the East nnd
West Kootenay and that our high
school relay team won second place
in the open event at Nelson last fall,
This work is the direct result of our
annual indoor track meet nnd out-
ioor work promoted hy this organization. For this we have reason to
feel justly proud of our boys.

Waving and \
Curling Dries 1
Life from Hair \
The constant curling and waving
demanded by present styles in bobbed
hair, slowly burns tho color, lustre
and very life from the hair, leaving
iit dry, faded, brittle, and full of
dandruff; then the hair roots shrink
and the hair falls out fast.
Since girls just must curl nnd
wave the hair to appear their prettiest, try "Danderine" to offset nny
bad effects. After the first application your hair will take on new life
and that healthy, youthful lustre, become incomparably soft, wavy and
appear twice as thick and abundant.
Falling hair stops and dandruff disappears..
A 36-cent bottle of refreshing
"Danderine" from any drug store or
toilet counter will do wonders for any
girl's hair. It goes right to the roots,
invigorates, nourishes and strengthens
them, helping the hair to grow thick,
healthy and luxuriant
Bob Wilson, freight engineer, Jim
Fowler, mail clerk, and Caroline Dub-
are attending little Bob Fowler's
birthday party when a boy arrives
[with an order foi* Wilson to take out
the Limited that night. This hns
been Bob's ambition and he is elated.
Little Bob begs to be allowed to make
the trip also and Jim agrees to take
him in the mail car. Caroline invites
Jane Cordon, who had arrived at the
party unexpectedly, to pass the night
with  her.
"Put me wise to all this bunk.old
kid—you    fooling   around   with   a
bunch  of  greasy   railroad   micks—
and   your  old   mun   with   millions
enough to buy this nnd every other
ml   iu   the  country  und  split  the
s into toothpicks—"
"Why did you come here?" plead*
Bob angrily, "when I told you I
never wanted to see or hear from you
again,   Why can't you go—and leave
"Ain't you the nice one, though?
So  friendly like!   I'll  go  all  right,
Bob, when you get your old man to
come across."
"My father has disowned me and
you know it. I haven't a penny in
the world except what I earn by honest work here—"
"Listen, the old man will listen to
reason if you put it to him right.
And I'm telling you now that I'm
going to camp right here on your,
doorstep until you do."
parolinc came apologetically Into
the room at this moment with Bobby to give fair warning that it wus
time for Bob and Jim to be off.
June glanced spitefully at her, then
turned buck to Bob nnd concluded
in a low, menacing whisper.
"And, furthermore, I'll put u crimp
in whatever little love game you're
up to here. Oh, hell, don't start so,
und poll any high and mighty innocence on me. 1 know what I
know—when  I see it!"
Thut was the threat Bob curried
away dinning in his ears when he
walked down with Jim and Bobby to
the station to meet the greatest trust
and task of his new working life.
Not a pleasant prospect, or one lo
allow him full enjoyment of his
night's job. Yet, with June's omin-
Words, there remained like a.
beckoning aura over und around all
I present difficulties u picture of Caroline as she hnd said good-bye; Caro-
f line in her slim grace und courageous
There wus no doubt in Bob's mind
but thut Jim was worthier of her
than he ever could be. If it would
make both of them happy—Bob was
content, he tried to tell himself, to
do penance for his own omissions
[and .shortcomings by encouraging
and abetting their romance iu every
possible way.
Thus his thoughts ran during the
first proud minutes of his trip, when
he thrilled at the leaping response
of the big Mallet to his lightest touch.
Rounding the sharp curve that would
take him clear of the Crater City
yards, Bob looked back along the
train—his train; his charge! Long,
sleek, the line of every mail cur and
BEM»{tatu«* la*
pullman bearing out the suggestion
given by every line and angle and
sound of the locomotive—of power
without end, hoarded und guardedly
leashed; of greyhound speed. On the
tail end—like u rattle on a python,
Bob I bought with a chuckle—was a
prison cur, bearing the last butch of
I'lsonera to be transferred.
Spike was in thut car, Bob hud
larned. Strange, was it not?—in
the last car, a mortal enemy; in the
first mail cur, n dearest friend and
a child Bob loved as much as if he
were his son! An odd mixture, Bob
thought philosophically—the best and
the worst iu his life, under his hand
for the whirlwind dash through the
The la«l  crosstiack  of the yards

long right of way ahead.    Bob pulled   the  big throttle—it was  fitting
thai   a giant engine should have a
giant throttle!—wide open gradually,
giving  the  Limited a  full head  of
steuth that presently sent it pound-
iiifi- on   the  straightaway  ut  better
than   fifty,    The grade  up toward
Eagle   Pass would  begin   soon;   he
must make time now, while he could,
for it would never do to smudge his
eputation, which hnd won this as-
lignmeht for him, by dropping behind schedule on his section of the
run.    Ami Bob knew, as every engineer  knows,   that  it  is  a  constant
und  Vigilant   fight  to   keep   within
scheduled time on u long and difficult
run such us thi.-, over the mountains.
There  was something soothing in
the smooth exuberance, in the bel-
lowfng  vigor,  of  the   Limited;  and
Bob, leaning on his right elbow out
of   the   tab  window  as  he   watched
the  right-of-way  lights that rushed
nt him out of the night like green
anowflakes in  a streaking blizzard,
was lulled into more placid reflections  than  he bad  expected  would
be his lot for many u weary day.
After nil, it was not fair for him
to decide whether Caroline should
have Jim or him, or cither; he had
reason to believe that Caroline cared
for him, so the honest thing was
tu go through with his plan of telling
her the whole truth nt the earliest
possible moment—including the truth
ubout Jane, who and what Jane was
to him, and what his plans were for
unshackling the hold she hud on him.
Then Caroline could make her own
decision, ami there would be no hard
split the lonely air. It was on the
last half-mile straightaway approach
to the station, and making top speed.
The station agent kicked over his
chair in his eagerness as he leaped
for the signal tower lever.
Bob, still holding the watch In his
hand, had looked out before sounding
his warning of approach to the Rise
Ravine station; the light in the signal tower shone green, and on the
way up the steep ascent to keep
his eyes on the tracks and lights
until well past the Ravine, and on
the way up the steep ascent to the
Pass, but as he relaxed his hold on
the whistle cord the watch, which he
had palmed in thut hand, slipped out
| of it to the floor of the cab. Bob|
withdrew his head into the cab and
leaned down to recover the watch
! at the selfsame instant that the
frantic operator in the station threw
the signal tower light from green to
A soft oath over the fractured
crystal of his watch changed to a
whisper of love, melded into a smile
of devotion, as Bob met the smiling
eyes of the photograph turned up
to him from the floor. He covertly touched the pictured likeness of
Caroline to his lips, glancing down
first to make sure that the fireman i
was busy with his gauges und his
poker rod und not watching him
Then he returned both picture
and damaged watch to his pocket,
and leaned out to meet the cool rush
of the night uir against his cheeks
once more. The Rise Ravine station
had dropped two hundred yards behind ere now; uhend of him was only
the dreary way of black miles that
would require ull his alert skill to
get over in the technical style and
speed that a crack flyer like the Limited should.
Back in the station, though Bob
could not know it, n terrified agent
stood on the platform watching the
tail-lights of the Limited disappear
upgrade, shivering and sobbing,
"My God, he run right past the
red light—and me turning it against
him a full quarter of a mile before
he got here. Nothing can save the
Limited now—"
Whereupon the agent showed the
quick and disciplined wit of his kind
to save the best out of any emergency; he rushed bad; to his key and
broadcasted u call for hospital trains,
for doctors, and nurses, That much j
he could do, and even while Bob I
was racing Ins train up the moun

if he lost out, he assured himself;
for there was one thing he new
would lose, come what may, and that
was the inspiration of merely knowing such a fine and splendid person
as   Caroline.
Bye and bye, as he urged the
roaring iron meteor of the rails on
its flight, the intensity of Bob's reflections upon his personal fortunes
mingled so closely with the routine
thoughts necessary for the dutiful
operation of his engine that slowly
and insensibly fell Into a reverie of
such depth and intensity that it was
akin to self-hypnotism.

were shorn of their lip adornments
before their departure. "Doc." Huffman, captain, and Ted Nagle, the
manager, up to the time of their arrival in Vancouver, were the only

they made a bet with the other players thut in the event of their winning
the intermediate championship, the
two would agree to visit the barber
immediately following the second and

players agreed to adorn their nether

Hockey as a game comes from the

Late Chas. Petersen Buried
Under Auspices of Scandinavian Brotherhood
Burial rites were performed on
Monday morning last, at the undertaking parlors, for the late Chas. 0.
Petersen, of Yahk, who died on Wednesday of last week. He was a member of the Scandinavian Brotherhood
of East Kootenay, and that body waa
represented at the funeral by quite
a large turn-out of members, to pay
last respects to a, member of their
brotherhood. Deceased was a Lutheran by faith, and service was held
at the undertaking- parlors, conducted
by Rev. M. S. Blackburn, pastor
Knox Presbyterian Church.
of them had, living as they were in
a country whose customs were not
exactly theirs, commending them
for having accustomed themselves to
these customs. The God which we
serve is the God of all, who gives us
strength to bear up under such circumstances, he said. We all travel
the same course and the hope* of
the life everlasting was a consolation
common to us all.
In regard to the Lutheran faith,
he was of the opinion that it had
given to the world a higher standard
of living than many other faiths he
had known. He believed those who
had been brought up in the faith of
their fathers had had a very clear
vision of God, and felt sure they
would do all that lay within their
power to make things better for those
who are left, and to fill the vacancy
left by deceased.
Members of the Scandinavian Bro-
I' j Lherhood, about fifty in all, after attending the service,  marched to  the
speaking to those who for the | cemetery, where, following Mr.
most part were of Scandinavian birth, Blackburn's brief service of commlt-
Mr. Blackburn said he could appreci- tal as the remains were lowered into
ate the feeling thnt doubtless many the grave,  the   Brotherhood service
was read by Isacc Burch, the past
president r.f ihe Scandinavian Brotherhood of Eaat Kootenay. This
service has some extremely impressive passages, extracts from which
are given herewith, as read hy Mr.
"Again we are reminded of the
uncertainty of life and the certainty
of death, and the vanity of all human pursuits. Decay is on every
living thing, and the truth is that
as soon as we commence this earthly
life, that moment we begin to die.
The last respects we pay to the dead
are useless except they an- lessons
for the living. The cold form before
us is Insensible to our sorrows. He
has gone to accomplish the destiny
of the race, and his body to the slumber of the grave, there tu he resolved
into its original element.
"What are the externals of human
dignity'.' The power of wealth, the
pride of intellect, or the charms of
beauty, when Nature has paid her
just  debts'.'
"To those of his Immediate ri
lives ami friendi who nre moil heart-
stricken at the loss we have all bus
tained, we can truly say we sincere
ly sympathize with them in their bereavement, and ask Almighty God to
look down with infinite compassion
upon the widows and fatherless in
the hour of their desolation, and fold
the arms of His love around them.
And let us all heed this warning,
that when at last our lives are finished here below, may we receive those
welcome words, 'Well done, good and
faithful servant, enter now into the
joy of the  Lord." "
Following this service the members
of the Brotherhood deposited sprigs
of evergreen in the grave,
The late Mr. Petersen had heen in
the Kast Kootenay district for about
twenty-four years, and was at the
time of his death about fifty years
of age. He had been at Yahk for
some yenrs, and previous to opening
his barber shop there, had heen engaged in various angles of the lumber
business. A widow survives him,
and a stepson, who was in the city
for the funeral, along with many
friends from  Yahk.
The pall-hearers were mostly members of the Scandinavian Brotherhood, Messrs. Oscar Strembsrg, P.
Nordgren, McCartney A. Benson, B.
Lundeen and C. Kckstrom.

Kenzie his neice, Miss E3. Marion
Kittle and private secretary W.
Cleland, came lo a halt not far from
the entrance to the hotel's pergola.
Here lined up on either side were
members of the local G.W.V.A. under
the immediate command of their
president. William H. Seatou. As a
guard of honor they stood to attention while being inspected by His
Honor, after which President Seaton
expressed in an address the feelings
of the veterans towards his saying:
"We, the Veterans of the Winder-
mere District, desire to tender to you
our respects at this time. As residents of the Columbia Valley we take
pride in, and rejoice at the signal
honor bestowed on you hy your appointment as Lieutenant-Governor of
British Columbia, As residents of the
valley we claim a share in the honor
which we know has heen so fitly
placed in your keeping. In you we
know a man who will live up to the
highest traditions and fulfill the
duties of your office with credit to
yourself and the province of British
Columbia and we congratulate you
and ourselves on the happy choice
lhat has been made. We regret lhat
the duties of your office will take
you away from the Columbia Valley
tint we know that what is our loss
will be the gain of the province at
large nnd we comfort ourselves with
the thought that wherever you are,
this district will always occupy a
position in your thoughts. We look
forward tn the time when you may
be residing here permanently again.
In you as Honorary President of the
G.W.V.A. we congratulate ourselves
again, and as a mark of our respect
and esteem we stand here as a guard
of honor to you, our worthy Lieutenant-Governor."
Next in order were the Boy Scouts
of the Lake Windermere district who,
under the direction of Scoutmaster
McBey, stood rigidly at the salute as
His Honor passed between their
files. Succeeding them came the
local Girl Guides under the command
of their captain, Miss Dora K. Bod-
ecker. Inside the portal waited the
Brownies under control of lieutenants Effio Tumor and Mary Turner,
waiting their part in the proceedings,'
Once inside the door all present
joined in singing God Save the King, i
immediately after which the tiny
Brownies swarmed around His Honor
and in the most graceful manner accorded him the royal salute.
Greetings From Citizens
Doctor Coy, as vice-president of the |
Windermere District Board of Trade, j
acted as host nnd opened the proceedings in a few well chosen re- \
marks after which he culled on Mr.'
II. C. P.aysou, as president of the
Farmers' Institute and Lake Winder-'
mere Creamery; Mr. E. Ernest Fish-,
er, as president of the Hospital As-1
sociation; Mr. William Weir on be-1
half of the Royal Caledonian Society,1
and .Mrs. Basil G. Hamilton on behalf of the district's ladies' organizations, to tender the honor and express the good wishes felt towards
Mr. Bruce on receiving so signal an
appointment. Patrol -leaders Esmond
Taylor and Joseph Peters presented
Mr.   Bruce   on   behalf   of   their   or-
Legends of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec
Folk tales and legends still fling
to the shores of the St. Lawrence,
that first highway into the unknown
continent of North America. Legend*
in which are mingled hits of Indian
superstition, French, customs and
religious beliefs. In the time cf the
ea'-ly explorers, those brave men who
dreamed dreams which led them nn
and over the bright waters, pan dark
islands, purple hills and shining
cliffs, until they settled in Canada,
th.;se legends were reverenced. Now,
however, while large Canadian Pacific
steamships erowded with tourists'
ply up und down thi? St. Lawrence,'
the legends are no longer regarded
except as quaint fairy tales with
Mun.'what of a religious flavour not to J
be disregarded or rldicuh d, hut to be j
enjoyed as reminiscent of the olden
days when saints and demons assumed
mortal forms.
Katherine Hale, in an artistic little
book issued hy the Canadian Pacific
Railway recently, ably depicts many
if these stories. One of tho most
tamiliur of these French Canadian
legends is that of Loup-Garou
evidently derived from the German
werewolf or the Irish banshee. Loup-
Garou typifies the French Canadian's
reverence for things spiritual and his
i belief In supernatural intervention.
Joachim Crete, a milW of Beau-*iour
was not really a bad man, but he did
jeer at church collections and failed
to try to convert his hired man mere!
because he was such a good partner at
deckers. On Christmas night they
Played, instead of going to church
i hey even, in a mood uf defiance net
the mill going, as if it were an ordinary
night. Suddenly crack! and the mill
stopped working. Then the lantern
went out, and the two men were left
in trembling darkness! After that the
.lured man tumbled down stairs, and
[the miller begun to drink fast and
furiously! Presently he heard a deep
moaning, and turned to see a hug*
dog about to attack him. Then the
miller knew it was Loup-G.irou, and
he fell on his knees praying for forgiveness. But he lung.d at the dog
with a reaping hook, and wounded
him. That was the -aving of the hired
man, for according to the legend, if
you have been turned into the form
of a wolf or dog because of evil deeds,
only n bloody wound can restore- you.
Loup-Garou is one of many such
HBnis.at.on with a good deeds badge,
while Miss Bodecker, on behalf of the
Girl Guides, presented Miss McKenzie with a handsomely framed picture of a local subject, and expressed
the loyalty of all her local company
to Miss McKenzie on her automatic
appointment to an honorary position
in   the   provincial   organization.
His Honor replied very feelingly
to all the felicitations and genuine
expressions of good will not only to
himself but to his neice, who is now
the chatelaine of Government House.
He assured all present that his personal devotion to Windermere district and the Kast Kootenay as a
whole would never be overshadowed
by his officio! duties and his residence in a distant part of the pro-
The gathering after this resolved
