Thursduy last the hund of death
was again laid heavily 0n East Koo-
tenay, when Peter Paul Heric was
called away nt the St. Eugene Hospital in Crunbrook. Shocked as the
community had been with an untoward number of deaths, the ninth with
whicb the city and district had been
visited In two weeks, the news of the
passing of the late Mr. Heric had the
■iffect of a crushing blow on his relatives ond. friends, who had little
thought that he would be the next to
cross the Great Divide. After a short
period of sickness, he, who with those
that were dear to him had been
pleasantly contemplating what life's
evening now had in store for him,
was taken away, leaving a place
which even time can never fill.
Judged by men prominent in the
life of the community who knew him
in a business and private way, the
deceased waa one whom the district
could ill afford to lose, and one whose
life and example could be profitably
Thc late IVter Heric was born on
the 26th of July, 1868, at Berlin,
now Kitchener, Ontario. When but
boy he moved to Michigan, coming
west Ul the Kootenay district about
1909, being connected most of the
time since coming here with several
■ •i the lumber companies. For many
years he was at Yahk with the C.PJt,
lumber camps, and several members
of his family still reside there. About
two years ago he retired, taking up a
fruit ranch in the Creston district,
the venture giving promise of being
very profitable one. About two
weeks apo he was brought into the
hospital suffering from diabetes, from
which, despite all that could bc done
for h m, he finally succumbed.
In 1*88 he married Harcie Elisabeth Stark, of Manistique, Michigan,
to whom were born tne tollowiug
children, all of whom survive to
mourn their loss: Fred R. and Jack,
of Seattle; Lee, of Yahk; Mrs. B. E.
Markle, of Bull River, and Mrs. D.
PatenalJ, of Yahk.
Three brothers and five sisters are
also left; they are Jack Heric, Yahk;
Mrs. J. Hruski and Victor Heric, of
Manistique, Mich.; Mrs. Boushore snd
Mrs. Charles Boudine, of Detroit;
Mrs. Fred Benson, of Bay City, Mich.;
Mrs. Langlois, of Moskigen, snd
Louis  Heric, of Seattle.
Besides all of the children, Mr.
Jack Heric, of Seattle, was here to
the funeral of his brother.
The funeral service was held on
Sunday afternoon last from St.
y's Church, the service being
conducted by Father Ehman, snd tbe
full Requiem Mass was sung and fit-
tine tribute paid to the memory of
the departed. About thirty autos
were required to convey the sympathizing friends to the graveside,
where interment was made.
A host of floral tributes snd the
presence of a large number of friends
from the surrounding district, from
Creston to Waldo, testified to the
hitch estate in which the late resident
of the district was held. The sympathy of the community is extended
to Mrs. Heric and family in their
hour of bereavement.
The pall bearers were as follows:
Messrs. James and John Martin, J.
Schell, F. W. Burgess E, Home snd
F.  Marsh.

"You don't look it, bufc—aa you

toward one of the balconies, rapidly
emptying as the tide turned ballroom-
ward! "I particularly wanted a few
words with you, he added when they
wero on the balcony, effectively
screened from the dancing-room by
an embankment of palms. "I've had

"Partly. You haven't by any

helping him with your husband?
There was a  veiled threat.

any good if I did."

lie left that for the time. "I wish
you would change your mind now.
It would make everything easier.
You see," he smiled frankly, "I've
quite come to like you. . . ."
"What has that to do with  it?"
"The truth is," he said at last,
we've got to have your help. We
want you to make your husband see
that it's t0 his advantage to throw
his coming election to Renfro. The
present administration hu caused us
—the people I represent—to lose millions. If things are to go on like
this, we stand to lose millions more.
I'm sure you see the point I'm trying
to make
"The point is clear enough," Molly
said, "but I'm afraid I don't see what
it hns to do with me."
"Everything, believe me."
"If you'll pardon me—I -see my
mother-in-law. I've an Idea she's
looking for me. . . ." Molly turned to go. Mrs. Cochran was, in fact,
I just crossing the corridor.
Bancroft put up his hand. "One
I moment, I beg of you." He took
| a step nearer to her. She paused,
i but held herself ready for instant
flight. "Last night when I first met
you," he said then In a low, significant tone, "I thought you were only
very clever at hiding your feelings.
But now—I see that you actually
haven't recognized  me. . . ."
Molly gave him a surprised glance.
"Kecornized you? Why, no—but I
meet so many people, she added
Ilis intent gaze held her. "You'll
have lo think back," he said, "quite
some years . . , ."
Molly turned with a vaguely
startled movement, lifted her eyes
to his face. She had not In reality
looked at him before—she was meeting constantly such quantities of
people. ... But she looked at him
now. She grew suddenly very still.
The peucock-bluc fan which she had
been abstractedly furling and unfurling slipped unnoted to uie floor; lay
a vivid patch of color between them.
She wns like a hypnotic subject passing into the state of suspended ant*
niatiort—frozen in the exact attitude
in which she had first lifted her head
to regard him. Her eyes were wide
and sightless, blue as blue glass.
"You'd better sit down while I explain," Bancroft suggested punctiliously.
She did not know that he had
spoken. She waB looking about
vaguely for some physical means of
escape from the thing that wu clu*
ing in on her. It did not oceur to
[her to deny it, to fence, to play for
| time. She knew, and she knew that
i he knew. He was the man who had
been standing over by the stairs—
strange she had not recognised him
before. But—she had been beside
herself—her brain a camera without
a  negative. , , ,
Molly let her eyes rest a moment
on  the face  of the  man opposite,
horse-laughed out
make no mention
of the disgrace for you. Of course"
-he threw out a deprecating hand—
things will not come to such a pass.
Neither Mr. Renfro nor I have any
but the friendliest feelings, but—
'our husband is a stubborn man. He
tas kept us out of our own in this
stata for ten years. We must take
the weapon thut comes to hand."
"It isn't as if it were necessary
for him to do anything," Bancroft
was speaking again. "Just hands oil"
and let matters take their own course.
And we will return the fnvor by letting him keep his appointment to the
Senate. However, we shall expect
him In future tu be a trifle more receptive to suggestions!"
Molly gazed at him fascinated.
That was the last brick in the crypt
he was wall-ng up around her. She
had watched it preparing. She saw
him now fitting it deftly into its
niche, looking about cheerfully for
mortar and trowel—smiling at-her
the while in the friendliest way. Ho
was friendly, that was the curious
part about it.
"You have me, of course," she said.
"I'll have to try what I can do. But
it will take time,"
Bancroft's face cleared. He was
relieved to have the affair settled
with so little fuss and bother. His
admiration mounted a peg. "I'm
glad you're so sensible about it," he
declared. "But you won't be long
. , . ? The primaries are less than
a month off, you know."
"Ycb, I know. Within a few days
—a week at most—I will communicate with Mr. Renfro."
"We mav consider it settled,
"Yes. And now, if that's all . . ."
She made a slight intimation that
she wished to be alone.
As he was turning away with
deep bow, Sarah Cochran appeared
suddenl" in the archway that gave
on the corridor. She stood framed
there a moment against the brilliantly lighted background—taller than
Molly had ever seen her, ineffably
magnificent, ineffably correct. She
seemed actually to dilute, to fill thi
whole space of the archway—a black
brocaded statute on heroic lines.

has a large number of town lots, in

The prize list for potatoes and
seeds in connection with the forthcoming B.C. Potato, Bulb and Seed
Show which is to be held in the city
of Victoria, November 24th to 27th,
is now available.
The province of British Columbia
is well adapted for the production of
seeds and bulbs nf various kinds. For
Ihis reason, In addition to providing
classes for certified seed and table
slock potatoes, this year's exhibition
classes   for   vegetable,
, root and grass seeds
will   include
flower, cerei
and non-competitive commercial displays of bulbs. It is hoped that not
only producers but all those interested in the agricultural development of
this province will visit the exhibition.
It is hoped that the farmers of
the province will appreciate the efforts being put forward on their behalf by sending in a large number of
high quality exhibits. The support
of the public is solicited to encouruge
the development of a comparatively
new industry which promises to mean
a great deal to this province.

lnvermere, B.C., Oct, 9.—A largely attended meeting of the members
of the Farmers' Institute of the Windermere district was held on Wednesday evening, in the schoolhouse
here. Mr. A. B. Smith, the representative of District I of the Farmers'
ntatives with
rnnient. He
the institutes
were properly organized any legislation regarding the interests of the
runners had been put through without due consideration as to whether
it was .suitable for llu* farmers of
the whole province, or for only one
part of it. It is quite different now,
as uny legislation brought up by the
representatives of the institutes is
first of ull thoroughly discussed by
the different representatives, and
then when the mutter has been duly
agreed to. the officials of the various
departments of the government dealing with farmers and agricultural
business in general are asked to meet
them in conference. In this way any
legislation pertaining to agriculture
wliich may come up during tbe session of the house will be familiar to
the government officials, and thus receive better consideration that formerly.
Touching   on   the   coming   meeting
f the Advisory Hoard ni Victoria, he
xpiessed the hope Dint (he institutes
f Must Kootenny would limit their
lotions lu specific matters of ex-
reme Importance, instead of trying
ii cover a generally wider urea. At
the coining convention or District 1
to he lull at Crunluook next week
Mr. Smith hoped that each institute
would In* sure to send their allotted
11111111)1*1' oi' representatives, so that
when he went lo Vicloria to the sittings of lhe Advisory Hoard his hands
would be strengthened by tlie confidence given him through the interest
ihown by the members of the institutes under liis cure.
-In replying to Mr. Smith, the
chairman of lhe meeting, Mr. IL C.
Royson. agreed with his Ideas and
thanked him personally us well as in
the name of the institute for his address und for all the good work he
had done in District I as well us on
the Advisory Board when in Victoria.
The president then called on Mr.
Angus Hay, the district agriculturist,
for some remarks. Mr. Hay said
hut it alwuys gave his greut pleasure to come to this Farmers' Institute meeting and complimented the
members on the success of their re-
ently held fall fair. He also suggested thut any motions to come before the convention should be in the
hands of the executive some time
ahead, that copies might be sent to
the different institutes in the district, so that these motions might be
discussed and the delegutes instructed on how to trent them when coming up for action before the convention.
A very hearty voto of thanks was
tendered Mr. Hay, coupled with many
complimentary remarks on the work
which he wus carrying on with the
Boys' und Girls' Pig and Calf clubs
and the Junior Stock-Judging clubs
throughout the whole of East Kootenay.
The election of delegates to the
convention then took place, the following being duly elected: H. C. Ray-
son, J. W. Morelund and W. H.
Thompklns, with Mr. R. G. Newton

followed a collision on the Tuber

fanner east of Taber. According to
the boy's evidence, given ut Taber,
the horse took fright and swerved,
throwing him and treading on his
leg. It was struck on the leg by the
car, with the leg so badly broken
thai the animal had to be destroyed.

Dear Mr. Brackett:
In October 1912 I took a 20 Payment Life policy
from your Company's agent in Charlottetown, P.E.I.
I fully expected to pay premiums for thc entire 20
year period but I have now received a notice from your
Company that the accumulated dividends are sufficient
to pay future premiums, and that my insurance is now
fully paid up and I will be entitled to receive dividends
every year as long as I live or that if I should wish to
do so I could surrender my policy now and receive in
cash much more than I have paid in premiums. As
(his policy has become paid-up insurance in less than
fourteen years the result is certainly very gratifying to
me and it speaks well for the management of your
Wishing you every success,

Farmers Hold Convention
(Continued from Page One)
but intimated that when faced with
periods of waning interest on the pnrt
of members, he questioned at times
the wisdom of carrying too fnr the
spirit of altruism which had marked
their consideration for opposing bodies. The levernge of the powder distribution, rightly nn asset of theirs,
had been rendered of little avail when
the privilege wns grunted to others.
The progress that had been made by
the Institute, particularly through
their Advisory Board, in legislative
matters, was, he thought, worthy of
greater  support.
Mr. Lumsden. of Mohcrley, spoke
optimistically with regard to tlie district which he represented; while
they hud their problems, these were
effectively being solved. Dairying was
being gone at in u businesslike manner; the closing of tho mills at tinld-
en,  which  meant   a  loss  of  market,
will he counteracted by co-operating
with the Windermere Creamery in
ihe disposal of their produce.
Mr. Ben Crowe, ■■•■ the Jaffray Institute, gave an interesting talk mi
the condition <>t' tiling al Jaffray,
and the excellent results that hud
been attained through the activities
of the institute. He found the C.P.R.
had been very good in the treatment
.'l' their requests. If all the member- are as apparently active a-  Mr.
Crowe, nothing but success will mark
their efforts.

.Mr. W, II. Wilson, Mr. .1. I'. Finl;
spoke appreciatively of the value of
co-operation, Ib would like in know
ef some effective way of getting the
Idea acres- to these who do not so
i*'> operate, that they are losing or
enjoying benefits which they are
quite willing to let their fellow salesman pay for. While the fair had
been    a   success,   it   could   lie   made
doubly so by greater co-operation between the citizen and the farmer, lie
referred tu the work that, the board
had done to further the interest of
llu* farmers and extended a hearty
welcome to the city, along with
Sest wishes with respect to the result
of  their deliberations.
Mr. Welstead, of Parsons, made a
few appropriate remarks, anil Mr. ('.
./. Lewis entertained with a selection
by Service, which was well received.
Mr. Morrow, of Baynes Lake, following a few remarks reminiscent uf
the early days of Cranbrook, struck
v.hat was considered ky muny present
to be the keynote for the mutual
success of the farmer and citizens,
lie traced tlie interdependence of the
citizen and farmer, nnd showed that
by each dealing with the other instead of the farmer buying elsewhere
and the merchant his produce elsewhere, great benefits would accrue.
The merchant, he felt, should useer-
tain what goods were procurable in
the district before purchasing elsewhere.
Mr. Lawson, of Wnrdner, fell that
tbe development of the selling end;
was their biggest probh m.
Suggest Fairs Closer
Mr. Newton, of the Experimental,
Farm at Windermere, in a few remarks introduced the matter nf the
arranging of the Fall Fair dates so
that the fairs of the Fast Kootenay
district would follow in order, thus
making it more convenient for ex-*
hibitors and assuring all of lhe fairs
a larger numher of exhibits. Natal,
Windermere und Fernie could be induced \o put in district exhibits. He
referred to the advance made in agriculture in its atnnding in comparative
wealth. He was pleased to note the
co-operation between Golden and lnvermere as mentioned by Mr. Lumsden.
Mr. Tom Hawkes, an Ayrshire
breeder, was happy and interesting
in liis remarks with regards tn his
Mr. Weaver, of Natal, asked for
the earnest consideration nf the mutter of the fair dates, pointing out
the many advantages tu  be gained.
Mr. Hay, who was asked to speak,
referred tn the advantage of Cran-
krook as a meeting place for the conventions, and felt sorry that there
wns not a greater representation of
citizens present.
Worth of Institute
The speaking of the evening was
concluded with a valuable contribution hy Mr. Whitney Griffith, Ad
ory Board member  foi   Vancouver,
The speaker threw on' ninny stigge
tions which should be of much value
tu the various boards. Instead of
Btrlving for new things tn du, lie asked them to consider what they were
doing with the things which Ihey hud
already. Other societies had resorted to intensive methods nf creating
interest, why not tin Farmers' Institute'.' He felt it enuld be shown
that the most successful farmer, ns
in other lines, was the man who made
time for the facing of the problems
of the business in which they were
interested. He pointed out the difference in the respect shown the Advisory Board now with thut shown
them six years ago. He laid stress
on the greater value nf the district
boards and the advisory committee,
compared to the big conventions
which were the rule on the prairie.
The success of the farmers' institutes
was a matter of record iu B.C.; this
was secured only through tlu* effort
of (he Advisory Board members. Not
a province in Canada had a better
record in this respect. The manner
in which the board attains its ends
v/as illustrated by the speaker. He
showed the advantage thnt the farmers were to Cranbrook. pointing out
the publicity that frank rook got
through the junior judging contest.
lie paid tribute to the good work of
Mr. Hay and tbe Importance of ihe
city aud district getting behind him.
With respect to the Advisory Board,
he showed how they had won the confidence of the government and the
attention paid them liy the members
nf the government.   lie concluded by
sking lhe farmers to wake up and
show the city people that they were
alive. He urged them tn go on, and
felt that in u short time they would
see the result of the snetifices which
they had made. Mr, Griffith was
heartily applauded.

The men of Ontario had always
suspected the troth of the statement
mam- regarding the great prairie
country, which everyone knew lay
between the Red River and the Rocky
'mountains. Por years back their
gaze had been fixed upon tbat territory, longing for the privilege of
planting it with grain, and establishing themselves in a country where rumor said that luxuriant crops were
obtainable without either the labor of
flearing it from timber or the cost of
manuring it.
The laacceaaiUe West
The distance from "Canada" was
so great and the intervening dlflcul
ties of auch magnitude that it waa
practically out of the power of farmers or of the ordinary class of emigrants to make a journey there. Unless governments stepped in and by
opening out roads and improving the
almost continuous line of water communication existing between Lake Superior and the Lake of the Woods,
enabling the working class to reach
Fort Garry at a reasonable cost, the
Red River country never could be
settled by British subjects. A tew
travellers auch aa British offlcers,
Major Butler, Dr. Cheadle and others,
bent on buffalo hunting, now and
then penetrated into this much-aa-
persed land and came back telling of
its boundless plains and unparalleled
fortuity, but as it ia the British fashion to pooh-pooh Information coming
from such sources, their reports received but little attention.
The secret waa tolerably well kept
for many years; but at last so much
pressure was put upon the Canadian
government that the exploring expedition wu despatched hy it in 1868,
with orders to report fully upon the
resourcea of the North West territory. The results of these explorations were published the following
year, and the people of Canada learnt
on official authority that it was fertile beyond the most sanguine expectations. A few settlers from Ontario soon after established themselves in the neighborhood of Fort
Garry, and ao gave birth to a party
whose policy was progress, and whose
constantly repeated demand was,
"Open up communication between ua
and Canada; let ua have plenty of
immigrants; all we require is popula-

As muy easily be understood, thia
party of progress soon came into collision with thoso already described as
bent on keeping back the country,
giving birth to very angry feelings
between the two sections into which
public opinion thus became divided.
As all the Canadians wbo had settled
there, backed up by the press of On-
.tario, were on one side, und the greut
■mnHs of the French-speaking people
on the other, the difference of opinion coinciding with difference of origin, the parties quickly assumed a national aspect
'"ho Hudson Bay Company being
governed by a board of directors in
London, who were aloof from the
direct influence of local feeling, was
first of the two divisions comprising
the reactionary party to perceive that
the time hud arrived when they must
choose between withdrawing from
their hitherto obstructive policy with
profit to themselves, or seeing their
power to obstruct tuken forcibly from
them. A disposition on their part
to treat for the voluntary surrender
of their undefined and disputed rights
noon resulted in u bargain being arranged in 1801) by which they were
to receive the sum ulready stated, retaining possession of all their forts
and posts, together with a large acreage of land in their vicinity.
Taction Method*
The ministry of Canada, backed
up by public opinion throughout the
country, ut once hnd a bill passed for
the establishment of a government
in this newly-acquired province. We
ard warned by a French proverb that
the first step in ull transactions is
a most important one; and that taken
by the Dominion government towards
establishing tlieir authority was no
exception to the rule. Their first
direct step was to send forwurd surveyors to plot out the country into
townships; and this was the actual
circumstance that gave rise to the
first overt act of rebellion on the part
of the French settlers there. The men
employed upon this survey, as well as
their assistants and followers, were
all either from Englund or from On-
tario, and therefore seem to have
thought themselves entitled to look
down with a sort of patronising pity
upon the half-breed race already occupying or, as many thought, encumbering, the soil there. Around these
surveyors, us round a centre, were
collected a small band of Canadians
who had followed in their wake, hop
ing to obtain grants of land and make
fortunes when the new government
was established. The people of tho
country were thoroughly discontented
at the cavalier way in which they had
beon treated, ag tlieir will had never
been consulted by any of the three
parties who hud atrnnged the terms
of transfer, A feeling of irritation
was abroad which the bearing of the
surveyors and other Canadians to
wards them served to increase beyond measure. Many of the latter
began to stake out farms for themselves,  which  they  openly   declurod

One i>c Uu* most interesting ques-i
Lions discussed nt the recent National]
Meeting ul' Canadian Authors, was
"Can Canada Support the Canadian
Author?" All tin* evidence showed
(hat you may live in Canada and still
be an author, provided you can sell

Of course it's indefinitely easier to

Then why the Canadian author?
If tho country is unable to support
Its author, why try to have any? The
answer Is: because of our cosmopol

made up of loosely-cemented units
from every corner of the earth; because we need the welding force of

right now, than any country in the
This fact was brought home to us
forcibly by Watson Kirkconncll, the

across the prairie to attend the meeting in Vancouver, he wrote the following humorous parody on Browning's "Love Among the Ruins," and
it was read for the first time at the

A Need for Literature
Our literary needs differ as much
trom those of other countries as the
old Spartan ideal did from the modern.. Vou know, the Spartan mother
used to expect her son to come home,
either with his shield or on it,"
while the Canadian mother feels confident that hers will arrive either with
Ins wind-shield or through it! By
the same token, only writers resident
in Canada ean evolve a literature that
will exactly suit Canadians. Considered merely as propaganda, good
jvritiiiK would be of incalculable aid
to this country, if only from a commercial or business point of view.
And it isn't as though Canada can't
produce great authors. We are producing them every day, but we can't
seem to give them enough encourage
ment to keep them here. A case in
Point is that of Lionel Stevenson.
At one of the morning sessions of
the convention I found myself sitting
beside a slight, boyish-looking youth,
and I thought "this infant cannot belong to the Authors' League, he must
be here with his mother!" He proved
to be Lionel Stevenson, a poor boy,
who wns brought up and educated in
B.C. by his widowed mother, with a
good deal of struggle. Now at the
age of twenty-four, he is an M.A., a
Doctor of Philosophy, a professor in
Berkley University and, merely as a
side-line, has published two books, a
volume of poetry and one on "Appraisals of Canadian Literature." He
is quite a prodigy. At the convention he was constantly being honored
by his fellow-authors; was called on
for u speech at most important gatherings, including the banquet; and
the Poetry Society made a special evening in which to hear readings from
his works. I will quote two of his
poems, not because they are more
beautiful than the others, but bemuse they belong so distinctively to
B.C. and reflect the author's intense
interest in his native shores.

Looking Into Plan For Provincial Police to Take
Over Work
A lojuc much discussed nt Pernie
recently is the Question of tlu- lily
cmmcil considering iln* policing of
the municipality being turned uver \<>
the provincial Authorities, ilis Worship .Mayor Irvine lieinji* interviewed
on this subject definitejy stated thnt
up to thc present nil that is being
done by the city council in this connection is in the nature uf gathering
data. This is being done from all
available sources '""I when tho complete information is received the matter will be taken undor advisement
and carefully considered before any
steps surest ing a change or otherwise in the administration of tlu- police department for this city is recommended.
Mayor Irvine emphasized thnt the
action of the council in this economic
civic administration in general. The
efficiency of the police department
under'Chief Anderson is unquestionably of high standard and it is certainly not proposed io inaugurate any
system which will reduce the present
satisfactory status uf that department. On the other hand, however,
if it is found that other municipalities having adopted the method of
provincial police having jurisdiction
within their limits are obtaining
equally satisfactory results and tiie
complete service performed as now
with the city police, but at n much
less cost to the taxpayers. Tlmt is
a feature which the city council feels
it cannot in the fulfilment of its duly
His Worship said he desired to
make it perfectly clear io thc citizens
that before any change is made the
true position of the council on the
matter and its reasons for making
any recommendations will be given
full publicity, fopllwing which the ppr
portunity will he open for objections
to be presented and consideration
thereof will be given. This announcement i.s ftdt necessary at this time in
view of what may* bc termed circulation of propaganda mis-stating the
position of the city council to the
extent, that the chaitgQ in the method
of policing thc city is practically decided upon, when in fact it is only
in the preliminary stage of investigation.

TRYINO t0 comPare the Chrysler "60"
I III IliW with an ordinary type of Six is
like trying to compare two totally different things.
There can be no comparative measure
of value, for instance, between the
Chrysler "60", with its sixty-mile-and-
more-per-hour capacity, nnd another
car offering much less.
Just as sharply defined is the difference
in the comfort of these sixty Chrysler-
miles and the lesser speed and the less
easeful speed of the other.
The vital factor which makes greater
value in Chrysler "60" has its source
in t he-one -thing- which -can not .he-
copied—Chrysler creative engineering
and precision manufacturing as expressed in the plan of Standardized
In the Chrysler "60" it expresses itself
especially in qualities which stand out
so sharply that you cannot mistake
them the most beautiful riding and
handling qualities you have ever experienced, a most amazing agility, and
a gushing wealth of power that never
halts or hesitates for a single second.
