McCONNELL MADE A BIG HAUL
Francis McCounell is still winning
laurels in the athletic world. At
thu sports ut Nanaimo, held on thu
25th ut last month, he won no less
than four events, the remaining
events being all won by mainland
men. McConnell was undoubtedly
the star performer und won thu luu
yards race in IU .1-5 seconds, the 12b
yards hurdle, six hurdles, iu 15
seconds, thu 3(10 yards race in 35 1-5
seconds and the quarter mile, in 50
seconds. As Francis gets older he
seems to get heller in athletics uud
his many Cranbrook friends, the buys
who grew up with him in this city,
will be pleased to hear of his success.

A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS.
Several years ago Hugh Stewart
came to Cranhrook from Klkhorn,
Man., and some time afterwards
opened n confectionery and fruit business in a small way. By close attention to business and by courteous
treatment to customers, Mr. Stewart's business has grown year by
vear until today he has one of tho
best equipped confectionery and fruit
stores on the Crow, lu addition to
dealing in all kinds of fruit, vegetables, confectionery and fancy
groceries, Mr. Stewart makes a feature of his ice cream parlor, where
thc famous Hazel wood ice cream can
always he had. So popular is this
particular brand of ice cream that
ten gallons of it are sold daily. Last
year upwards nf five tons was dispensed by Mr. Stewart. At the
soda fountain will he found many
varieties of cnol summer beverages
daintily served. Mr. Stewart's success Is largely due to the help he
has had from Mrs, Stowart, -who
takes ns much Interest In the hnsiness ns Mr. Stewart himself.
J. Fulton, Chief Commissioner, Victoria, D. C:
Dear Sir—Ue aie now   rapidly    ap-
iimc ut the yeai   when
iVlUCO     will    be under

utn iocs.      During the mouths    ol
ui),   August and   September,    tue
I'uiui'i is usuall) vcrj favoraole tot
i.iti tires,    ami it is usually during
tosu months that the auaua) wanton
mj iu iiou     oi    limber   uud   other
opervj  lakes place.       The govcrn-
I'ui must imd some adequate weans
r    preventing   inese    arcs    being
siurteu,   and suiuu    more aggressive
uml    effective     methods      must he
adopted In connection with stopping
mem after     they have ueeu started
ami are under    way.        An increased
number ot lire wardens   must be piu-
vi-ued    dining   the months ot    July,
Augusl and    September    each year.
iai.e for     example    the   CroWS Nest
district between Kootenay river   iu
East Kootenay and   Kootenay Lanu-
lug in West i\ouicuay.     Along     the
trows    Nest   Dass    Railway    there
should be at least   five lire wardens,
l ucse   men    shuiild   bo   experienced
bushmen aud    lire lighters, and    nol
ordinary    government     olliuiuls.     in
uduition tu these men, it wuuid,     of
course, be    necessary to station fire
wardens at    diflerent    points in tho
mure    isolated    localities,    such as
i\;tsa, Windermere, uud one suutli   oi
the Urows ,-Ncst l'uss uu Gold Crec,
and the "taint rivers,    in addition tu
these tiro    wardens, every provincial
police should take sumo responsibility
in connection with this mutter.
1 would consider it wise that
every person, or persons, entering uiu
timber areas of British Columbia
■during these hot summer months for
any purpose, whether it is a cruising
party, prospector, fisherman, hunter
ur pleasure seeker, they should be
compelled to obtain a permit from
tlie nearest provincial police, or fire
warden, und iu showing this permit,
u copy of thu Fire Act should be
banded than, and the precautions
necessary thoroughly explained.
A vigorous campulgn of education
undertaken by lbe government, aside
Irom the arrangements already mentioned, is the only means by whieh
bush fires will he eliminated in the
Interior and mountainous districts of
British Columbia, during lliis season
ol the year.
Every man, woman and child living
iu this province must be taught,
first, the absolute necessity of preventing tho timber growth ot the
country from being destroyed by
fires; second, the disastrous und un-
iortunatc results that is sure to occur 11 destruction ol the timber
growth of tlie country by fires is not
prevented.
1 might cite one instance, which, if
given the proper study und attention,
will alone bo conclusive evidence of
the absolute necessity in taluiu .
precautionary measure towards the
preservation of tho timber growth iu
r mountainous districts of British
lumbla. I ntil a lew years agu
British Columbia was known only as
a mineral and mining country. The
interior of Uic province at that time
was overrun by people who were
looking for mineral. There were
thousands of prospectors scattered
through the mountains every year
for a period ol fifteen or twenty
vcars. The province was then heavily Umbered throughout. In order
that the work ot these prospectors
might bo facilitated, and that the nature of lhe ground would be more
readily ascertained, bush Ores were
evidently started in many places tor
this purpose, aud the high regions,
where there was nol sufficient moisture to give adequate protection, tbe
Umber was entirely destroyed. It is
p well known fact, that following up
the period mentioned, disastrous
freshets took place early each spring,
and Un* mountain snow's were melted
during ihe first hot days in the
spring, aud all the moisture in tbe
country ran oh' in two or three
weeks time, after which lhe country
experienced droughts which prevented
the growth of ordinary vegetation.
1 am informed hy stockmen and
ranchers, that for a number of yours
of these great fires, there was scarcely sufficient moisture during thc
summer months to produce vegetation
necessary lo keep the game and
domestic animals from starvation.
In later years we lind that in the
interior of British Columbia, in the
former burnt and denuded districts,
there is a fresh growth of jack pine,
which has grown very rapidly, and
stands very thickly upon the ground
and has now reached the height of
forty to fifty foot. This growth ls
holding lhe snow in tlic mountains,
which causes the annual spring
freshets to come on later each year.
For example, leu or twelve years ago
the water in the Kootenays were at
its highest between the 15th day of
May and the 1st day of June. During
later years these streams have been
at their highest between the 1st day
if June    and the 15th day of June.
.ipi
ly exhausted during the summer, and
that such intense drouths had been
experienced that great cracks or fissures had been made in lhe earth,
owing to lack of moisture, and during thai period it was necessary for
Un- limited number of cattlemen located in Alberta at that titno, to
drive their docks from one district
to another in order to keep them
from starving.
This cannot but be taken as a direct result of the destruction of umber growth in lhe mountains, there
being nothing to hold the snow or
moisture that nature had Intended
for the purpose of providm
Hon and distribution <
dining   the summer. Now   tint q
wise Providence bus provided a new
timber growth for us, l<i us take
care of it and improve il, and also
encourage and improve the conditions that has made it possible lo
glow forty bushels of wheal per acre
in the province of Alberta annually,
instead of a barren waste and do*
sell.
The conditions mention
equally to the beautiful
nestling bet ween the mountainous
ranges in the interior nf British Columbia.
Trusting that a question of as
groat an importance to the people or
British Columbia nml our prairie
provinces of Wus torn Canada will receive, at the bands ot our government, tbe consideration that is merited.
Yours very truly,
P. Lund.

GOOD ADVICE.
In the spring of Dills, we experienced
the highest water mark in the Kootenay river on the 7th day of July,
in faet as conditions arc at present,
our rivers are well filled all summer,
and as the timber growth increases,
It is evident that additional moisture
will be retained, and that excessive
freshets in the spring of thc year will
eventually be prevented, excepting in
extreme cases, nnd that the flow from
our mountain streams will be uniform and normal throughout the
summer months, whieh cannot but
have a desirable effect upon tho
country and its people.
Wo havo frequently heard tbe old
Kelt lers and entile ranchers in the
province of Alberta, proclaim thut It
would be impossible to make that
province un agricultural district, owing In the great drodghts thnt had
heen experienced by them in the early
days and for a number of years tlic     Henry Hehnson,    M.P.P.,

The Editor Cranbrook Herald:
Dear Sir: Just a little pointer to
anyone planting small plants during
dry weather. Don't wnler the plants
themselves, hut make a hole about a
couple uf inches away and fill it with
water. If tbe roots arc dry it is a
good plan to mix soli and water so
as to make a thin mud nnd soak the
roots uf the plants in It.

TUE METAL MINERS.
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
Metal mining is the one industry
ihal has mudu British ColuUtuta
tumous. Hud it nut been fur ine uis-
covoiles ot mines in Kootuiiuy
l alu districts between ls.iO ana
ift'.'.i, Brllisn Columbia toduy wuuia
ne a province peupleu hy a tew stoc
raisers uud lumbermen. The worn
ing ul lhu mines near Nelson ami
Aiusworth, the discoveries in mc
slocan, at Rossland, and in tno
boundary, brought people tu
province. These people were not ail
miners. Some uf them were burn on
farms and knew bow to worn. Tney
cleared land, planted vegetables that
grew tu perfection. jNext they
planted fruit trees, that in time
produced fruit that won prizes iu
competition with fruit grown iu
other lands. They built sawmills
that made lumber from timber growing iu districts tbat looked inaccessible. They developed water powers
that are among the largest in in.
world. They built cities that are
the equal of those of older-settled
countries. They built school-houses
and churches. They were good citizens, and became part uf the permanent population of the province. They
did not encourage the immigration of
Asiatics aud they did nol employ
those who were in the cuuulry. British Columbia owes much lo metal
mining.

C. W. Hunt, thc critic of the Ed.

Hunt's writing in tlic Bulk-tin of

A central eclipse ot the sun will
take place on Juno the 17th, visible
as partial one in tbe United Slates
and Cana-ila. The eclipse will take
place between live ami six o'clock in
llie afternoon.
The last total eclipse ol the sun
was viewed here shortly after the
close ot lhe civil war, ol to he exact
iu ISiiii. This eclipse will be remembered hy many people who yet speak
of the !|iiecr experience anil it is an
event which figures largely in tlie
folk lore of lbe southland.
The last total ecliji.se of the sun
darkened the south central states of
America, and many are the occasions
which arc recalled.
The south during the latter years
ot the sixties were poverty stricken
from lbe ravages of war, and when
darkness enveloped the land at noon
day the people ot tbe ignorant elass-
espccialiy the newlv treed slaves,
were eowod by the effect of the phenomena and fell on thc earth in pr-i
thinking the eve of a terrible calami I y    was   upon them.     Chickens
lit to roost and cocks crowed.
Hals and owls and other fowls which
by night appeared and candles
anil lamps were lighted in the
dwellings.
The eclipse predicted for .lime 17
is to he total and will be a reproduction of the one in 1869.

The mine has always been considered one of the big lead properties iu
llritish Columbia. Some years ago
money was advanced lo huild a smelter by the (iiiggeiiheinis, tnrough
Charles Sweeney and tbe Federal
Mining and Smelting and Refining
company, Its local representatives,
and, to protect the interests ot the
tiiiggenlH'inis, control of the mine
and smelter was taken over by
Teacher.) Swi-cney. Hnicc Clendeiining was
. an inade superintendent. Under careful
supervision and working it paid the
management enough to satisfy immediate claims and it was "turned
back to the stockholders.
The mine has never been profitable
since that time. It Is alleged that
mismanagement is rrsponsihle tor the
jHMl.non worth ot bonds which nre
now held by the Guggenheim Interests in Spokane. Some time ngo
/ine was encountered on the property, making trouble in smelting the
ore aud Ihis is claimed to have further decreased the profits.
Stockholders were given notice by
lhe bondholders that if the stock
were deposited in escrow in tbe Traders National Hank ot Spokane nnd
voluntary halt-cent assessment put up
bv the holders of the stock, which ts
non-nsse.ssable, 12 months mor
would be given the stockholders to
operate the property. The halt-rent
assessment wns to constitute a bond
lo Ihat extent in favor of the stock
holders putting it up.
According to the stockholders thc
agreement has been repudiated by
Charles Sweeney, Senator George
Turner and the Federal company.
Statement was made last week by
Senator Turner that the bonds will
he foreclosed, hut would say nothing
as lo the further course of tbe Guggenheim interests in the matter.

The fire department had a run last
Sunday afternoon at about 3.3U. The
dwelling of H. Moore, in the southwest i|uarter of the city, was found
to be on lire. The fire brigade turned out in their usual quick style and
soon bad the water plaving on the
burning building. A high wind was
blowing, but in spite of this fact the
lire was confined to thc one house
aiid did not even break through the
roof or walls. The house was badly
scorched inside and the furniture was
badly damaged hy smoke and water.
The origin of the fire is unknown
except tbat it started ia a closet
under tbe stairs iu which clothes
were stored. Tbe insurance carried
will probably cover the damage done.
A MAN FROM IDAHO.
G. W. McKenney, of Salmon,
Idaho, was in town Ibis week. Mr.
McKenney is a churacler—one of the
really old-time westerners. Born iu
Boston, Mass., his parents moved to
Toronto when George was a thrce-
tiionLlis'-old baby. He lived in that
city during his early years aud then
went to sea, visiting almost every
quarter of the globe. After mining
all over the Western States, some
twenty years ago he became engaged
in mining ut u point called Meyers
e, about fitly miles trom Salmon,
Idaho, and, strange us it may seem,
bad never ridden in a railway train
until he look the trip that brought
him Lo Cranhrook last week. Mr.
McKenney told the Herald man
about Salmon. It is a town of three
thousand, is distant seventy-five
miles from a railway, but has electric light, waterworks, sewerage and
bits of brick buildings. Mr. McKenney is very favorably Impressed with
Cranbrook and the surrounding cuiin-
tiy and the chances are that after
ii short time he will recross the border and lucule with bis family iu
British Columbia.

§ OBSERVATIONS?
t        BY THE OLD MAN. £
^*w *W4W*w**&#wv-ei9i§>*4r
Let us make a mure beautiful Cranhrook and the only way to du this is
fur each individual to display a pride
of home and a pride of city. An
hour or two of wurk each day will
wurk wonders in this glorious, growing climate of ours.
What a boon it is lu live in Cranbruok and Kast Kouteuay.
Tlic people of Cranhroiik would like
lu remember their Iriends in the
neighboring towns at all the celebrations lu be given un the first uf
July. But since Ferule, Fort Steele,
Moyie and Creston all intend to observe the day, the best advice that
the Herald can give is to the effect
that vmi should he sure to attend
one ul the celebrations at least and
there is no question but that you
will have au cnjoyuhle day.
It Is not too late to join the Cran-
tuurtk Hoard ol Trade. The executive are doing all in their power,
with what little money they have at
their disposal, to advance the best
interests of tlie town and district.
They are spending their time—and
any man's time in the west is worth
money—to the advantage of every
property owner and wage-earner In
Cranhrook, and the least that the
residents of Cranbrook can do Is to
pay their $2 to help out the Board of
Trade in the work that they have
on band.
The Herald is in receipt nf a circular stating that S. S. Tavlor, K. C,
of the firm of Taylor & O'Shea, of
Nelson, B. C, and J. A. Harvey,
K. ('.. lately of the firm nf Harvev,
McCarter & Pinkham, of ltevelstoke,
have formed a partnership ami will
upon June loth, loon, remove to nnd
practice law in Vancouver, B. C., under the firm name of and stvle of
Taylor A'    Harvey.     Molh Mr. Tay
lor ami Mr. Harvey arc recognized
among the leaders ot the bar in i>-
isn i ulumuia and no one can fail to
appreciate the fact that tho combination is a strong one. Air. Harvey,
since coming lu l^asi Kootenay some
tmrteen years agu, has made a wuu-
ueriul success in the practice uf law,
anti JUr. i ayior, uunng his residence
iu Nelson, was recognised us a musi
suceessiul attorney, having been engaged ou une siUc ur the other iu
every impurlaul ease in that city.
Hn''menus of huth gentlemen will
ull lie in wishing tllOUl every success
ui ineir new held.
The game ul politics is recognized
ii) ail as a strenuous one, aud it is
pleasing tu run across s'tatemeuiti
.iui.ie uy prominent men uf either
paiiy, displaying a hruad-miudeti
iiutt uf pulitics and political situations. At the recent meeting beid
in honor uf Sir James Whitney,
premier uf Ontario, at his old home
at Dundas, Sir James expressed iiim-
aoit as follows:
".ts i gruw older," said he,
"I realize bow much ol my so-
called success is due to iiilluences
nol visible to the ordinary observer, lu iuilueuces altogether
outside of party. I owe much tu
tne people of both parlies iu Ouu-
uus, aud 1 am resolved that I
shall never seek to represent any
oilier people in the province of
Ontario." (Applause). Tbe premier added that he bad lived long
enough to kuuw "that the Conservatives are not always right
aud lhe Liberals not always
wrung." There was a great
ueal of nghi and sometimes considerable wrong aboul both parlies; there was, in his opinion,
too much party prejudice abroad
iu lhe land.
Yesterday was the anniversary of
the declaration of peace in South
Africa, which took place in 1802.
What did the English journalists
who spoke uf Joe Martin as "a tame
and mild politician," expect? l>m
ihey think that "Fighting Joe"
would appear in chaps, a buckshin
shirt and a gun ou each hip?

Prevailing at our two stores are having a most
marvelous effect upon the people.

month among merchants in our line, but the
announcement some two weeks ago that we

and would make the prices to suit the people,
has increased our business in a most unexpected
manner.
We always keep our word with the people,
and when we announce a reduction in prices
they know that they will get the benefit.
The Reduced Price Sale will continue for
a brief time, and these reduced prices apply to
everything in stock. Low prices and the best
quality will make business at all times. Come

UY A DREAMER
NEIGHBORS, !
A good neighbor is always the
most desirable ol possessions, although in some cases their social
value is under-estimated. What constitutes a good neighbor is also frequently misconstrued, although the
sensible accept um ol the term is, the
neighlior who is friendly without being ofllcious, helpful without being
superfluously so and finally, one who
respects the privacy ol others' household affairs by a certain degree ot
formality of manner.
Tbe soeial nolghbor is not always
the useful neighbor, yet eaeh in her
plaee has special influences to exert
of equally beneficial consequences.
Tlie sympathetic neighbor is also a
popular one, but she has in exercise
continuous tact, lest her solacing iu-
lluenco may occasionally bo overtone
or utilized at untimely periods. Tbe
itiquisittvo neighbor Is always a dread
to everybody within the reach of ber
inquisitive curiosity, as she does not
seem to have any Intuitive respect
for others feelings as regards the
divulgonco of porsonal affairs to an
outsider.
The truest and most respected of
all neighbors, however, is thc one
who always speaks well of everybody, who 'devotes the largest share
of her sympathies to her own affairs,
is chary of administering unsolicited
advice, and who always waits until
her   soeial mul   useful capacities are
eijuested, and   never renders herself
■lib ioits even iu her most sanguine efforts at proving to bo a good neighbor.

Some men belong to ovorv society
in ilu1 neighborhood but the society
of Lheir home.
Woman is gentle, dependent ami
loving when protected, hut dares
danger by Hood, lire, or buttle to aid
her country- or protect her loved
ones.
Thc sweet and gracious little flower of courtesy is one that should
lihioiii steadily in every home. No
rare exotic can send forth such sweet
perfume nor lend such grace and
beauty to a home. If all the members of a family were as courteous
and hind to each other as they are
to strangers, what a difference it
would make iu ehe aome atmosphere.
more fully roalUo that life is only

I THE NEW WOMAN.
| Just now who "the new woman"
of the day is, upon whose much heralded advent many good and sober
I minded people have tal.cn fright, re-
| mains a mystery. That times nre
changing, and women advancing Into
, broader fields of education nnd usefulness, no one iu his senses can
doubt. Tlie real new woman which
tho twentieth century will give to
grace tho decade of ils successors,
will bo one, who, to the gentle,
feminine attributes of her colonial
ancestors, will add the strength ot
sell-reliance and the force of systematic, intellectual training. A wider
experience In life, and an extended
knowledge of human nature, have
never yet retarded thc wheels of progress * or deracinated society, and
there seems no very good reason to
believe that different results will
prevail, because women possess these
advantages. Immutable nature has
mapped out to woman ber sphere.
The golden chains of love aud maternal devotion bind her willingly to it.
.she could not leave it if she would,
aud slut would not if she could.
So after the extravagances and ex-
agcratious that are now following
naturally enough in the wake ot the
movement which is advancing woman
into a higher position in the soeial
system, shall have settled down, as
extremes attendant on reforms have
done before, the real new woman
will appear, ns true to herself and
her vocations as any of her predecessors, If the spirit of her time extends ber duties, in some instances
into public life, there she will conduct herself with dignity and ability.
She will preside at the fireside, a fair
and stately figure, none the less lovable because adorned with more ol
the graces of Minerva, as well as
those of Venus; none the less companionable because of her better understanding of things that interest
men.

can not thrive long on purely a love
diet.
We are almost out ol home girls;
gills that are "mother's right hand"
girls, that can cuddle the little ones
next best to mamma, nnd smooth
out the tangles in the domertie skein
when things get twisted; girls thnt
father takes comfort in tor some-
brothers are proud of for something
tiling better than beautv, and big
that outranks the ability to leading
a dude.
How many children know their
lathers only as anxious, money-making machines, and their mothers as
tired, nervous, middle-aged drudges,
it would be wise lor them occasionally to take some time for the whole
family to rest and amuse themselves
together. The parents' influence
would he stronger it they lived not
altobether for but with their children.
The girl who is a favorite with
'.er own brothers is npt to be popular with other girl' brothers, too,
hut there is no use in a girl trying to
lie nice with her brothers just' when
she is in company, for the sham Is
easily detected. She must he pleasant and "bon comrade," as the
French sny, all thc time, then tho
other boys will want to find out for
themselves why her brothers like to
be with her.
THE WORD "WIFE."
What do you thing the beautiful
word "wile" comes Irom? Wile
means "weaver." You must be
either housewives or houscmoths.
Remember that, in the deep sense,
you must either weave men's fortunes
and embroider theni, or leed upon
and bring them to decay. Wherever
a true wife comes, home is always
around her. The stars may he over
her head, the glow-worm in thc
night's cold grass may bo the fire at
her feet; but home is where she is.
When we look about us and consider the happiness that exists, the
families that have come to grid—
some from misfortune, some from
error, we arc almost persuaded that
those parents who die young, belore
tbe evil day comes when they no
longer find pleasure in their children,
are thc only ones who die happy.
Could the mother who fondly clasps
ber Infant in her arms, the idol ol
her heart, and object ol her tendcr-
est devotion, while she prays without ceasing for his life to be spared
that he may continue a consolation
to her and prop tor old age: could
she foresee tlic future of that child,
which Is so wisely hid from her,
could she see him or her overburdened or disgraced, poverty stricken and
friendless, idle or insane, a worthless vagabond, or a debauched millionaire, way down in the dregs of
society, or a way up in tho scum,
would not a change come o'er the
spirit oi her dreams," would she not
any part thereof to any persun of
whose claim it shall not then have
received notice.

It has been said that Premier Mc-
