Monday evening of this week an
executive meeting of the Cranbrook

many mutters of importance were
dealt with. As a result of a discussion
with regard to the date of the open-
ng of certain lakes in the district,
which according to the act would he
closed until April 80th, a wire was
sent to the Honorable Dr. King and
the Fisheries Department to see if

The Rod und Gun Club have taken
up the mutter of holding a trap shoot

for the carrying out of same,
Last week severul members of the
Rod and Gun Club visited Horse
Shoe Lake and with the seine net
caught a number of salmon, but
found that some were not yet in a
condition to use. That the activities
of the local Rod and Gun Club are

a representative of the Lethbridge

The many friends of Miss Eva
Weston will be pleased to learn that
her efforts to become proficient in
bookkeeping and typewriting have
been crowned with iucqoh.
Last October Miss Weston began a
course in the Hollingshead Business
College in Calgary, and it was not
long before it was seen that she would
have no difficulty in mastering the
work and passing her examinations,
but also that she would he an expert
in her line. It was only a short lime
till she had won lhe silver mod a I for
attaining a speed of fifty words per
minute on the typewriter und again
later the bronze medal for a speed
of sixty words. Last week word was
received lhat she hail completed her
course, but was waiting 0V8t in Cal
gary to compete in a big typewriting
contest that is staged yearly in Cal
gary by the United Typewriters.
In this test the contestants are entered in three classes, senior, intermediate and novice, Miss Weston being entered in the last named class.
Friday last the test was made in the
Board of Trade building, Calgary,
and according to the Calgary Herald,
Miss Weston took second place in her
class and third in the whole field so
far as percentage was concerned In
the several classes. Out of 960 words
written In the allolcd time, Miss
Weston had but 13 errors. In arriving ut the standing both the number
of words written as well as the mistakes made are taken into consideration. On the straight accuracy test

the unnuul bull sale which was held
at Kamloops last week. .Mr. Hay was
successful in obtaining for this sale
four furlaods of Herofords and
Shorthorn bulls. Mr. Hay's return
to Crunbrook was further postponed

the meeting of the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers' Association,
which took place in Toronto on the

Mr. Hay reports a very pleasant
and profitable time, but like many
others was glad to get hack to Cranbrook und East Kootenay. In the
East he left banks and banks of snow,
and cold prevailed during his journey, snow being evident in many
places. As a tribute to the excellent
keeping qualities of Crunbrook milk,
Mr. Hay gives out the information
that not wishing to take a chance on
the quulity of lacteal fluid which he
might secure on his trip East, he pro-
ided himself with 5 bottles of milk
from Crunbrook, and when the last
was used on the trip home, it was
found'to be in perfectly good condition. With regard to milk, Mr. Hay
is of the opinion phut considering the
disadvantages the local producers ar<j
under compared with those in the
East, milk is selling in Cranbrook
at a reasonable price

UNITED CHURCH
ACQUIRES PROPERTY
FOR BUILDING SITE
Looking forward to the future, and
perhaps not very distant future at
that, the United Church of Cranbrook
has secured a block of four lots, comprising a very desirable church site,
the deal having been recently com*
pleted. The lots are situated on the
corner of Louis Street and Garden
Avenue, on the corner diagonally opposite the residence of W, S. Santo,
Since the accession to its membership resulting from church union, the
United Church had been very badly
hundicapped for room in its buildings,
and these do not lend themselves to
enlargement without much expense,
which it is felt might as well be put
into a new building. No step looking
towards a new church edifice Is con
templatcd immediately, though it has
been spoken of as a desirable step
for a long time by some most intimately connected with the work of
the church.
Bonds Briico Claim*
According to reliable information
received from Golden A. P. De.nby, of
Vancouver, has bonded the MacLean
group of mineral claims, situated on
No. 3 Creek, facing the well known
Lead Queen property from the estate of Wendell MacLean of Calgary.
The property is located about 16
miles from Brisco station, on the
Kootenay Central branch of the C.P.
R., and consists of ailver-lead ore.
It watt located many years ago by
the late David MacLean, and for
■attt MMidteavUe time ha* lain idle.
striking in its logic and filled with
irrefutable arguments. Referring to
the passage of the scripture "Go ye
into the world and preach the gospel"
the speaker put up the question,
Why should we be interested in
missionary work?" The question is
a pertinent one, and it is agreed
some are interested and some are not.
In answer to this question she asked
"How can the will of God be carried
out if people do not know His will?"
Our duty as a people who 1600 years
ago embraced Christianity waa forcibly shown through a story she told of
a missionary society formed on the
prairie by Indian women who only
forty years ago hnd the Gospel offered to them, and who in response
to a question as to why they were
anxious to volunteer for this society
and to aid the missionary work, stated
that they felt it was their turn. The
second reason for activity in mission
ury work, especially by the United
Church congregations, was to show
that they were spiritually alive,
well as bodily, as the death of the
former was the forerunner of the
death of the latter. To show that
such was the case she related an in
eident in connection with her work,
referring to a church that felt it had
enough to attend to within itself and
which but a few yeurs later wait forced to admit that they were on the
missionary list for supporting
churches themselves.
In reference to Japan she pointed
to the imprints of the work there and
the advantage of Christianizing these
people, who as indications seem to
point, were destined to be leaders in
time to come. The United Church
through Its congregational church alliance were the logical ones to take
up this work.
Referring to the great influx of
foreigners she held that if you want
a Christian people you must first
give them Christian teaching and
that it was absolutely   essential   to

whether he could not reconsider hid

accepted with regret, many of the
brothers paying tribute to the manner in which Brother Longman had
served the Lodge in various capacities.

no solos played by guests and
house members. A halt was ^called
in the proceedings by Comrade secretary Ashworth. who, on behalf of

scored 211, 210 and 810, or total of

the highest three strings bowled at
the City Alleys.
Following the game.- the players
adjourned to the parlor of the Y.M.
t'.A., where the presentation of the
several cups and prizes was made.
In the absence of Mr. Fred Belan-
ser, the manager of the tournament,
Mr. WhiUaker called upon the several winners to come forward and
receive their rewards.
As captain of the winning I.O.O.F.
team. Mr. C. A. Towriss accepted the
new challenge CUp presented by the
competing teams, and with this cup
went five smaller individual cups to
the members of the team, who were
C. A. Towriss (taptfthi), Y/.-& Johnson. G. Sinclair. Art Wallace, and
Lee Gammon.
The K.P. team were winners of
the second prize, which consisted of
five individual medals. As there was
no representative of their tearli present, the award was not made. The
K.P. team wa- composed of Geo. Anton (captaint. Meb Dallas, J. Taylor,
Ole Omis and H. Collier.
The winners of first place in Class
B was the Y.M.C.A. team, which took
the Brunswick Cup and five small
individual cups. The team was made
up of Geo. Simpson (captain), Dr.
W. A. Fergie, W. Taylor, IL God-
lern and Bennie Parker.
The winners of the medals for second place, Class B, were the Scandinavian Brotherhood of East Kootenay, the players being M. Matson
(captain), K. Brown, A. Benson, J.
Moe and K. Edotrom.
For the medal for the highest individual score for three frames, M.
Dallas and P. J. Morin will have to
bowl another frame. Mtb Dallas won
a box of cigars for the highest total
of three frames at the Y.M.C.A.,
while P. J. Morin got a similar prize
for the high total of 037 at the City
Bowling Alley.
Each of the recipients made appropriate replies of acceptance, amid
loud cheers from the competing bowlers.
In the discussion which followed
it was the opinion of many that the
tournament had been a SUCCOASi considering the hurried manner in which
it was got up, and that next year,
with the experience of this year to
guide them, a very successful tournament could be held. A schedule
would he drawn up early and rigidly
lived up to. In this way certain misunderstandings that cropped up this
year would be avoided.
Motions of thanks w«tc tendered
to Mr. Morris Clark, Fred Belanger
and Mr. Whittaker for the interest
shown in the tournament, also to J*
H. Majeau and 11. Mc.Master for the
valuable services which they had rendered as scorers.
Special mention was made of the
good work done by Mr. Belanger as
manager, and a brace of pipes will
be presented to him as soon as
he is free from the grip which prevented him from attending the closing function.
Mr, X. Holdener of the City Bowling Alley, who is to a large extent
responsible for the revival of bowling
in Cranbrook, said that while he was
'glad that the tournament had passed
off so well as it had, he hoped that
next year they would conclude the
whole affair with a banquet, where
they could get together and forget
and forgive any little difference* that
might crop up during the games. PACE   TWO

EASTERTIDE
EVEN aside from the emphasis which various
religious bodies place on the Eastertide, it
seems quite appropriately an occasion (or a little inward scrutiny, a soil of mental housecleaning time.
A quarter of the year has slipped hy. and a stocktaking of the situation is in order, tu check up on
how the accomplishments planned for lhe year are
likely to work out, and to find out whether there
has heen any slipping from the grip taken on things
at the'beginning <if the year. If mi there is tinie to
correct that tendency, so that 1926 shall nol go down
as another year of personal inertia, if its predeces
sors have gone that way.
That ought, at least, in !«■ the logical aftereffect of the h'.aster -eason, if its proper significance
is grasped. The churches sieze upon it as a time
for stressing the religious and spiritual fundamentals and the human mind is dead or calloused indeed
that cannot see this great lesson in the world all
about it at this time of the year. There is the
great resurrection iu Nature on every hand and it
rouses a kindled feeling iu every human breast that
finds unconscious expression in many ways and goes
to prove unmlstakeably that nothing is meant tn
perish utterly on this earth. Of a surely there is
an Afterwards, provided il may he by some agency
that human thought is nol unanimous upon, bin the
preparation for which is the care of every individual
mind and soul, To ignore litis great Eastertide
truth is not the height of wisdom, bin nothing less
than consummate folly,
.....
WHAT THE FIGURES SHOW
been given lo the district in arriving at that stage
of development. Millions are paid out iu wages,
creating other millions of businesses providing the
means of subsistence lo this army of workers, and
the various lines of industry that all this supports.
What a toll the government takes out of an undertaking of this magnitude is seen from the fact that
two and a half millions have to be set aside for
taxes out of these earnings No small sum in itself,
this, as the people of the country would find if they
had to be taxed in some additional form to provide
it.
The Kootenays without this overshadowing
mining activity would be indeed a changed district,
and it is only by looking at things in this light
that it becomes apparent how the general prosperity uf thjs part ol the country is wrapped up in
it* continuance. This in turn serves lo show just
what the mineral resources of a country mean when
translated into the language of dollars and cents.
...   *   *
A SUCCESSFUL VF.AN
AMASS nf figures sometimes proves uninteresting, and often their grasp is nol in !«■ had
from a casual glance at them. Take for instance
the annual report of the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co., just made public. This shows profits
for the past year reached a high level of well over
eleven million dollars. A big sum, indeed, and calculated in turn the enquiring mind to see just what
it means to the Kootenay district to have the operations of the company going on such a scale. The
three-quarters of a million that went to the shareholders of tbe company does not seem a large proportion, especially when it is considered wdiat has
Canadian veterans, tho G.W.V.A. im-'
mediately placed its branches, membership and assets, Including its ad-
justnient and legislative bureau, at
his disposal. Pending the consumption of unity the G.W.V.A. has been
requested by Field Marshal Haig, and
by Sir Percy Lake, provisional president of the uniting body, to carry on
its service work, so that the bureau
could be turned over intact to the
new organization.
He claims "The Veteran" always
had been the most effective agency
of contact between the Adjustment
and Legislative fiureuu and individuals needing help. Profits of "The
Veteran" are utilized iu the financial
support of this work. The assistance
of the general public through the medium of "The Veteran" serves the
dual purpose of maintaining an effective source of Information on
veterans' affairs and assisting in the
financing of the beneficial efforts of
the association.
Till', financial posit
as given by a
tvailablc fur dlstribtit!
ible light from every
mi of the City uf Cranbrook,
.latenient for the year now
in, shows up iu a very favor-
augle, and liti
fault can he
found with this aspect of things. The sinking fund
surplus is shown nt only n slightly lowered figure,
and still gives a margin of almosl ten thousand
dullars. The same applies to lhe difference between
the assets ami liabilities. The value of the former
have risen somewhat, and the general surplus remains at only a slightly lowered level than at the
end nf the year previous. The total lax levy was
considerably lower than previously, bill the proportion of the taxes paid in the current year was higher
than the previous year, which is a good sign, and
leaves outstanding in arrears of taxes a sulutO.lt
lially smaller amount. Both the public utilities slum
balances on the right side again, the water system
a little large than before, owing to a slightly increased consumption through the paid services, and
also tn Ihe fact that increased overhead charges
were offset by decreased operating expenses. The
surplus in the light department is still a healthy one,
iu spite of the fact that lhe lowered rates, while resulting in bigger consumption, did not bring in as
large a gross revenue. Debenture indebtedness was
increased somewhat, owing to the issues which had
been authorized being sold, and this will be slightly
increased during the present year owing to further
issues having been authorized, but these will he offset somewhat by old debentures which terminate
during the present year, while next year a considerably larger issue will be retired.
All the ratepayers are shareholders in the city,
and a careful study of the figures drawn up in the
various statements provides the basis for many interesting deductions as well as presenting an index of progress in the development of the city.

WARDNER    ]
NOTES |
**************************
A baseball meeting, to be held in
the club hull, was called by the team
on Wednesday evening to decide the
organizing of the regular team and
the obtaining of funds to carry the
team through the season. Owing to
the other attractions on Lhat evening however, few bothered to turn
out to the meeting, while the failure
of the baseball club secretary to attend complicated matters still further. Finally the boys decided to
adjourn Wednesday's meeting altogether, and Manager Paul Storey will
call a second meeting for Monday
. evening next, when it is hoped attendance will be larger. The town is
working rather at cross purposes this
year, owing to the fact that half the
town is pulling for a football team
and the other half fur a baseball
team as usual. Wardner is scarcely
thought to be in a position to support two distinct teams and as a consequence neither teum seems to encourage and support the other.
Morris Miiidlin, of the Crown Tailoring Company of Montreal spent
Wednesday lust in town delivering
their Easter garments to several of
the young fellows.
Mr. Axelson, of Cranbrook, held a
dance in the club hall on Friday evening, himself furnishing; the music with
un accordiun, assisted by Mr ?....?
....?.... with u mandolin. Only a very
small crowd turned out fur the occasion, and in the opinion of those
who did attend, the dance was not
at all u successful function, either
from the view of enjoyment or finance.
Mrs. Chas. Munirin is on the sick
list again this week with an attack
of pleurisy. Mr. Coo is also suffering
from this ailment, while several other Wardnerites are in a state of convalescence.
Mr. nnd Mrs. Wm. Holton motored
to Cranbrook on Saturday evening on
a shopping trip.
A son wus born to Mr. and Mrs.
George I'owell, of Wurdner, on Sunday last, March 21st, at the St. Kugene Hospital, Cranbrook. Of course
congratulations are quite in order.

vision of of a committee officially ap- journed until Thursday evening, when
pointed for the purpose, consisting | officers and players of both teams,
of Mayor J. A.  MacDonald,  E.  P.
Dawson, president of Rotary Club;
K. D. Barnes, president of the Gyro
Club; John Cnrtmel, government
agent; Rev, N. I). B. Lurmonth; principal C. W. Tyler, and Miss E, Hanson; the two latter being the staff
of the Nelson Business College. The
championships, over the country as
a whole, will cover six groups—Canadian novice, international novice,
Intermediate, senior, open and uc-
CUracy. Kootenay students are only
entered for two of these title contests, the Canadian novice, which includes Canadian students who have
received their training in typewriting
subsequent to August 1st last, and
the intermediate, whose training has
been subsequent to August 1st, 1924.
Only the thrci leaders for the whole
of Canada in each of the six championship groups will be recognized
by prizes, the title for the winner,
and medals for the contestants coming in second and third. Other contestants doing exceptionally well,
however, have the chance to get Underwood, Remington or other medals
for various degrees of excellence, for
the typewriter companies will confer
medals in the case of contestants
using their medal .standards, provided they do not already possess
them." Victor Holmes, of Wardner,
is entered in the Canudinn novice
class, together with six other Kootenay students, one of whom, Miss
Shields, of Trail, is already holder
of un Underwood silver medal.
Kd. Peppier motored up to the
company camps at Skookumchuck on
Thursday of last week, accompanying
Mr. Chas. Simpson on tbe journey.
A I. Fletcher wus u business visitor
to Crunbrook between trains on
Thursday last.
The baseball meeting called for
Monday evening in the club hull was
very well attended by baseball on*
thuilOStS. Paul Storey held the chair
and opened the meeting at eight o'clock. Frank Thompson, lust year's
captain of the team, was requested
for n speech, and complied with a
short   talk   on   Wardner   baseball
general. Frank appeared to feel that
it was not much use the Wardner
team seriously considering entering
the league this season unless a pitcher could be secured. This item
was dlscUSMd for several minutes,
but wus adjourned for the time being. A motion was also made durum the evening by Mr. Birch, mov-
Ihut,  as   Waniner cannot afford
und the sports committee in charge
will be elected.
Mrs. MacKenzie and son, Bert,
journeyed to Cranbrook between
trains on Saturday.
The Kimberley Tunnel team completely routed the Wardner eleven on
Sunday ufternoon, when the former
tenm motored to Wardner as the result of their challenge last week.
The Tunnellers, winning by a score
of four goals to none, drove the
home team hard throughout the game,
and only the excellent work of
Chureher, in the goul, saved Wardner from bein^ more badly beaten.
The fact, however, that half of the
home team were on the sick list, and,
as a consequence, were unable to do
their usual good work, put a better
face on the game, while they also
made the Kimberley men fight for
every goal, although the latter are
practically all Old Country men, who
have pluyed football since cradle
duys. John Moore, Birch, Wynne and
Fred Harris were easily the star
players on the home team. Another
star, Bill Harris, was unable to play,
on account of sickness. A collection
amounting to thirty-five dollars was
taken during the game, a fine crowd
of spectators turning out for the
game.

FOR SOLDIERS'PAPER,
"THE VETERAN"
Mr. John Butler, ex-Sergt. C.L.H.,
C.K.F., authorized subscription representative of "The Veteran," wus
in the city the first part of the
week renewing old and soliciting new
subscriptions for the well-known soldiers' pnper.
In conversation with Mr. Butler,
a Herald representative learned of
the many problems with which the
Great War Veterans' Association
were confronted and how us the official organ of that body "The Vet
eran" was endeavoring to do its part
in the solution of these problems.
It was also learned that for over
eight years the G.W.V.A. has been
the chief advocate of Canadian veterans and dependents in the presentation of eluims for pensions, treatment and re-establishment, before
the various goMern mental depnrt-
ments and boards at Ottawa. In that
time more than 100,000 deserving
enses have been assisted and much
suffering and distress thus prevented.
This work has been done without
cost to the individual and had been
available to all veterans and dependents without regard to membership
In the G.W.V.A. The association

assisting Parliament to maintain

sinus, treatment, appeals and related

BROWN'S BUS LINE
TO OPERATE BETWEEN
TRAIL AND ROSSLAND
(From the Rossland Miner)
Jack Brown, who operates an up-
to-date stage line between Cranbrook nnd Kimberley, and who was
here recently investigating the ad-*
visability of installing a similar service between Rossland nnd Trail, is
en route here from Kimberley by
way of Spokane with one of his big
passenger busses which ho will put
;n service immediately between Rossland and Trail and Tudanac on a
regular schedule.
Other busses will follow, Mr.
Brown says nnd he is also authority
for the statement that the service
will be K'gulur and run on schedule.
The busses used by Mr. Brown
are the most up-to-date to be had,
and commutation tickets will give a
low fare between the two towns and
the smelter will be sold to workers
in the smelter nnd others.
Just what the rate win be for
trips between the two towns is not
unnounced as yet by Mr. Brown who
is accompanying the first bus to Rossland and expects to arrive here before the week-end,
Tbe bus business is not new to
Mr. Brown. He made a thorough
canvass of the situatoin while here
some weeks ago and is confident such
u service will work out to the advantage of both passengers and himself
soon. Holmes are filling up rapidly
in Rossland, and traffic between the
melter nnd this eity is growing to
huge proportions.
It is Mr. Brown's intentions to
make definite ynnuunccnient of his
plans in the Miner next week.
The headquarters uf the new bus
lOrvtee will be ut the Orwell Hotel.

A splendid and well worth while
watching wrestling match took place
at the Mill Hall, Yahk, last Saturday
night, when Charlie Olson of Minneapolis and Nels Jepson of Yahk
met in their third wrestling match.
The first match, held about a couple
of months ago, hetween these two
wrestlers resulted in a win for Jepson. on account of of Olson sustaining a broken collar bone. The second match, held about three weeks
later, also went to Jepson. Olson
should really not have taken part in
this return match so soon, as his col*
lar bone whilst knit was not fully
well, and bothered him considerably,
thereby causing him to lose the
match. But on stalling the third
match last Saturday night, Olson admitted that he felt one hundred per
cent perfect and certainly showed it
in his work against Jepson. Whilst
Jepson got the first fall after forty-
two minutes of exciting and extremely strenuous work, it- was Olson's
match from then on. Olson obtaining
the second fall in one hour and four
minutes later, with the same holds
that Jepson secured the first fall on,
a double wrist lock and head scissors.
There was then sixteen minutes of
wrestling time left, and Olson was
certainty the aggressor throughout
all the sixteen minutes, and whilst
he had Jepson in some very tight
corners, he was unable to get the
winning fall. Had a decision been
given it certainly would have gone
to Olson, and he would have deserved
ft? But, nevertheless, there was a
certain amount of sympathy felt for
Jepson, who had so gamely battled
for two hours against an opponent
that was at least twenty odd pounds
the heavier man. A party of Cranbrook ites that motored down to see
this match, afterwards were heard
to remark that they had not made
the long trip without being well repaid for it in seeing such a fast and
clever wrestling match. Everybody
that was fortunate enough to see
this match remarked that although
they had sure seen some good wrestling matches in Yahk, this was the
best one yet. There were two good
preliminaries to the main bout, the
first being a wrestling match between Royce Thompson and Nick
Kissalook. This boat was both interesting and comical. On several
occasions the "fans" got a good
laugh out of ft, as both youngsters
did their best to copy the wrestling
style of their heros, Jepson and Olson. However, after very nearly
Ratting pinned to the mat himself,
oyce Thompson won the third and
deciding fall. The second preliminary wa* also good, although the two
contestants were not so evenly
matched. Kmil Olson of Yahk, 163
pounds, opposed Mac. Brogan, also of
Yahk, 146 pounds. This bout was
well worth the watching and credit
is due to Brogan for the game manner In which he stood against his
heavier opponent. A considerable
improvement was also noted by the
fans In the boxing of Emil Olson,
who has been taking this sport up at
Spokane for the paat two months.
Mm. Clerihew, of Yahk, left last
Friday for her home fn Nelson.
Bill Staples, "The Grand Old Man
of Yahk," haa now come to town for
a few weeks' rest, he having been
cooking at the local logging camps
for the past few months.
Dr. G. B. Henderson, of Creston,
who la also the Yahk school board
doctor, was a visitor to Yahk last
Friday. Whilst here he vaccinated
a number of the local people and
their children; he also inspected the
children at the Yahk school, one
young girl being sent home, aa the
doctor waa of the opinion that she
had a mild attack of measles.
The local provincial constable, Mr.
Sharpe, ia strongly urging the residents of this district to clean up all
iffan aad InflaauuU* material that
■tff teat taUsited fa tlttit yard*
during the past winter, as required
by the Health and Fire Acta. The
constable hopes that the residents
will do this and so save him instituting any prosecutions under the
above mentioned  acts.
The smallpox case reported in
these notes last week Ls progressing
favorably. No new ca^e hus yet developed.
Mr, Stewart, of the Cranbrook firm
of Ratcliffe & Stewart, wus a visitor
to Yahk on Frida.
A very enjoyable dance and supper was held at Meadow Creek last
Saturday night, the music being supplied by the Boundary five-piece or-
chestra. About forty-one couples
took in the dance, quite u number of
them making the -trip from Bonners
Ferry. All agreed that they had a
wonderful time, and that the music
was just right.
Nettie Blair, of Kastport, has been
visiting her relatives in Fernie for
the past week.
Mr. Charlie Olson, the well known
wrestler of Yahk, left for Cranbrook
on Sunday, where he will train for
his coming match with Nels Jepson.
also of Yahk. This match, which
is to tuke place next Saturday night.
April 3rd, at the Mill Hail, Yuhk, If
to he the final bout between these
wrestlers, and anyone that has been
privileged to witness their other fast
and hard fought matches, will certainly do their utmost to see this
coming match, as there is no doubt
that it is going to be one of the hardest fought matches ever seen in Yahk
or district.
It is reported thut Mr. Al. Fredericks, part owner of the Boundary
Cafe, hus sold out his interest to a
third brother, nnd that he will in
future devote his whole attention to
the operation of the fine new auto
service station, that at the present
is rapidly nearing completion near
the Boundary Cafe at Kastport. A
large gasoline tank has already been
sunk; this tank has u capacity of
eight thousand gallons, and a specially laid pipe line has been run from
it to a point on the S.I. railway
tracks, where a whole railway carload of gasoline will he run off at
once, A free air und water plant
will also be established by this up-
to-the-minute service station, plus the
stock of a complete line of auto accessories.
At the request of a number of
Kastport residents, Mr. Hugh Hannah
and Mr. Al. Fredericks are trying to
get suitable material for a boxing
and wrestling smoker, to be held in
the Kastport Hall at a date in the
near future. A challenge has been
forwarded from Kmil Olson, of Yahk,
B.C., to Mr. Munn of Dover, a small
town near Sandpotnt, Idaho, for an
eight or ten round boxing bout. Mr.
Mann, when in Kastport a month or
so ago, expressed his willingness at
that time to meet any young fellow
at his own weight, one hundred and
sixty-five pounds. It is hoped that
this bout can be secured and put on
as the main event, as it should be a
very good one, both boys having a
reputation for gameness and being
willing misers. Several other preliminary bouts arc also in prospect,
which will bring together other good
boys from Yahk, Kingsgate and Kant
port. A large crowd from Yahk will
no doubt make the trip to Kastport
te take in this fistic and wrestling
treat.
Mr. and Mrs. Wade, of Yahk, were
visitors to Kingsgate on Sunday last
A sporty five-hole golf courae is
being prepared at Yahk, und a club

Quebec Deals With Union
The private bills committee of the
Quebec House of Assembly disposed
of the Church Union bill after compromises and agreement had been
reached between the interested parties. Premier Taschereau told the
committee that in case the "moral
authority" of the special commission
on the disposition of outstanding
matters were not respected in a reasonable manner, he would agree to
legislature to give effect to such
moral recommendations, This was
after Presbyterian counsel had asked for greater power for the Quebec
commission than was possessed by
the Ontario body. Montreal Presbyterian College goes to the Continuing Presbyterians In the bill. The
endowments will be temporarily turn-
The program and tea which was
held a week ago last Wednesday evening in the Lumberton Hall under
the auspices of the Lumberton Ladies' Aid Society was very much of
a success. Every number of the program wus given in a very fine manner
and all of the participants were encored. The program consisted of
musical numbers, both instrumental
und solos, and recitations.* Refreshments were served by the ladies after
the rendition of the program. The
tables had been decorated in St.
Patrick's colors and presented a very
fine appearance. The ladies realized
net receipts in the neghborhood of
fifty dollars, which will enable the
organization to carry out some of
the plans which the members have in
mind. The people of Lumberton have
always been very generous with their
support in the past, and although the
attendance at the program was not
as large as was hoped for, the results
were gratifying to those who were
responsible for the (evening's performance.
Mr. and Mrs. IL M. Brown, of
Spokane, are making ther home in
Lumberton for the present, nnd nre

The Lumberton Club held its regular social gathering last. Wednesday
evening in the club rooms. The early
part of the evening was devoted to
playing cards, which was followed by
u basket social. The bidding on the
baskets was very keen at times and
some of the men were forced to pay
u handsome price for the baskets;
Les Dwelley officiated in the capacity
of auctioneer and handled the job
u shipshape manner. The proceeds
if the basket social will go toward
i fund for the purchase of a musical
nstrument, which will be bought at
< Inter date to replace the piano,
v hit h has been used since the orga-
lization of the club. Just what sort
>f an instrument will be purchased
vill be decided on soon, as the coni-
nittee which has been appointed to
investigate the price of various mu
leal instruments will have a report
to make at the meeting which takes
place this Wednesday evening.
Messrs. Austin McDonald and Fred
Bailey were present at the meeting
on Wednesday last and demonstrated
the new orthophonic Victrola to the
club ■ members. The machine gave
very satisfactory service and tbe
dance numbers were very much enjoyed by the club members.
Lumberton was well represented
last Wednesday evening at the Star
Theatre, Cranbrook. Jake was the
ringleader and rounded up a program
which was presented at the Star
Theatre as part of the regular Wednesday evening amateur program.
Those taking part from Lumberton
were Miss Hutchison, who gave several dance numbers, and Messrs. Les
Dwelley, Bill Hutchison and Jake
Jucob.-on, who rendered several vocal
selections. The Lumberton contingent was assisted in the program by
Bandsaw Bill, who played some well-
known numbers on his favorite instrument; and Mrs. AxcUon, who
played the accordian.
Mr. Harley Miner, who has been
employed as caterpillar engineer at
camp number 2 for the past two
and a half years, left for California
this week, where he will spend a six
weeks' holiday before returning to
Spokane with the Holt Manufacturing
Company.
The regular weekly meeting of the
Canadian Girls in Training was held
last Monday evening in the Lumber-
ton Hall. The principal feature of
the evening's proceedings was the
initiation of some of the officers of
the organization. The initiation was
a thorough one, and considerable fun
was had at the expense of the initiates. There was no regular meeting held this week on Monday evening, si arrangements have been made
for a hike by the girls. The members of the group will render special
music at the church services on Faster Sunday.
Now that the weatherman has favored us with such beautiful wenther
there is some talk of the first base
ball meeting of the season, which
will undoubtedly be held some time
this week. Baseball has already had
a very good start in some of the
places around here and Lumberton
wants to be represented In the league
this year if one is to be gotten under way. The baseball diamond is in
bad need of repair and some of the
funds which remain in the treasury
from last summer will be needed to
make the grounds in readiness for
the summers activities. The ball club
Is also in need of new suits, as the
present supply is in need of replacement, since some of the uniforms
have had some rough treatment in
the past three seasons. The Lumber-
ton Club is very fortunate in that it
has a neat sum in the treasury from
last season's activities, which will
come in very handy this year for
equipment and grounds.

The first logs of the season were
ftumed on Monday of this week. The
fluining operations came to a elos?
>arller than was planned on, as the
water supply is insufficient to permit
of fluining for a very long time.
The jam which occurred at the two-
post was not serious, although
it was of sufficient size to interfere
with proceedings. As soon as the
water supply warrants the flume will
be kept very busy until the mill pond
is jammed from end to end.

STORY OF BEAR HUNT

Of considerable interest in view
of the recent controversy in Ontario
- the usefulness or not of the
crow, is a series of articles on Jack
Miner's work that is running in "Rod

The April issue contains an interesting article with reference to his advice on the establishment of a large
bird sanctuary.
The April issue of "Rod and Gun
also contains a very good offering of
reading matter of interest to the
sportsman, the lover of wild life and

CHAPTER    VIII—Continued
In the mail car, Jim opened his
lunchbox ami gave to Bobby a slice
of what remained of the birthday
cuke. He promised, also, that at
the first stop they would run up
front und give a chunk of cake to
Duddy Bob. Perhaps, they might
oven ask Bob to suspend the regulations of the road iu fnvor of giving
Bobby a ride in the cab; though
Jim, talking it over seriously with
Bobby us he was wont to discuss
id) mutters with him, reasoned that
perhaps it would be better if Bob
would refuse this concession inasmuch us he was only a substitute
and on trial in tbe cab of the coveted Limited himself. So they talk
ed, until Jim, stirred by an unac
countable tenderness of feeling for
the old-fushioned little fellow in
whom he saw so clearly nnd poig-
nuntly the cherished resemblance to
his dear, dead mother, took him into his arms of u sudden and kissed
him hungrily.
Bob saw the lurking blackness of
the runaway freight the instant it
shot within tbe furthermost reaches
of the Limlted's searchlight—saw it,
while fingers of ice seized his heart;
saw it, and reached for his airbrake
and his throttle simultaneously, pulling down on the one with all his
trength and cutting off the flow of
forward power with  the  other.
All too late, and to no earthly
avail.
Ten seconds later, Limited and
freight were piled up und jumbled
on the tracks in an indiscriminate
welter of steam and splinters, bodies and twisted steel.
Bob, when he came to, found
himself unhampered of movement in
the midst of a steaming, tortured
muss of iron, through which he was
able to scramble with comparative
ease and drop to the safety of the
ground, unhurt but for the shock.
In the horror of the moment his
predominating thought was for his
friends in the first mail car. That
had been reduced to kindling wood,
literally, und wns afire. A brake-
man, divining Bob's intention, tried
to hult him, but Bob shook him off
und plunged hysterically into the
wreckage, searching for Jim and
Bobby.
He found them, after a time.
Bobby,, held in Jim's arms and but
slightly caught by the debris, was
crying, trying to rouse his father.
Jim was still, white—his eyes closed. Bob shrieked aloud as he saw
that Jim was stone dead.
The flames were eating their all-
consuming pathway directly toward
the spot, so Bob, placing Bobby
aside in safety, worked frantically
to extricate Jim's body from this
last, crowning despoliation. But it
was not to be.
Bob gave up, however, only when
tbe flames licked dose to Bobby,
who wus screaming in fear and
grief.
"Kiss your Daddy Jim!" Bob
hoked, holding the child down until his lips brushed the still warm
cheeks of his father.
Then Bob bent over und kissed
him, too, while hot tears fell from
is eyes upon the face of his friend.
He had to crawl away now, to
save his own life and that of Bobby.
When he got clear again of the
wreckage he was in a daze of grief
for bis friend; of error for the extent of the disaster for which, us
driver, he was responsible, to a less
or greater extent he did not care.
The crushing truth was that he hud
failed his trust—nnd at what a cost.
Hardly knowing or curing what he
was doing, Bob seized Bobby up in
to his arms nnd staggered off into
the night with him—into the wild
and barren mountainside country,
away from the screams and groans
uf the maimed and frightened in the
tangled, burning monument to his
moral unfaithfulness to duty.
CHAPTER   IX
There have been in the long nnd
oft times honorable history of beds
and bedmntes, surpassingly odd bed
fellows; dukes and heggannaids,
prelates und—but then, there is little emphasis in a mere nibble of an
Inexhaustible cake. Historic instances form the exception to the rule;
tbe case of Caroline und June form
an exception to the exception.
Because, in any serious phase of
life, there never were more intimate
bedfellows than these two who were
total strangers to each other—inti-
mute, that is, in a sense of not having  a single emotional secret from

changed frosty good-mornings. Then
June gave herself up to a voluptory's
animal luxuriating in the yielding
delight fulness of the feather bed—
that locally considered barbaric and
outlandish furnishing introduced here
in the spare West, by the pioneering
Widow O'Leary.
It did not take Jane long to discover in the morning light something on a high shelf that she had
overlooked in the gaslight of the
night—that was a photograph of I
Bob in obvious und significant! prom-j
inence. Jane whet her rapier on the
discovery.
Caroline, rising quietly, went to
the window und made wide the way
of the fresh breeze and sunlight.
Caroline's nightgown was not thin;
and before this moment Jane had
not found a chance to observe what
she had been dying to observe—
Caroline's figure. Now, against the
flood of sunlight, her gown became
transparent; the slender boyishness
of her young form was revealed to
I June's jealOUs eyes, who thought of
the dumpiness already creeping in
behind  her own knees,
A hurried pounding on the door—
and Mrs. O'Leary calling in a high,
frantic voice for Caroline to open,
Alarmed, Caroline unlocked it hurriedly. Mrs, O'Leary face was as
white  us her apron.
The Limlted's been wrecked!—
Jim Fowler was among the killed,
and   Boh  and   Bobby  are  missing!"
Caroline sunk weakly upon the
bed, slim fingers clutching her
throat. June, looked serious, but not
particularly upset. Ever after, Caroline remembered that Jane's face
had shown no sorrow—for Bhe had
glanced ut her in the tragic tension
of the moment and had seen only
stone.
(To be continued)
Bob seized Bobby up into hit arms
and staggered off into the night.
one another; in boring with the eyes
of sex instinct through the defensive
armor of each other's soul; in trying
to appear as if they did not know
full well thut their spirits were naked, one to the other. Experience
gave Jane uo advantage in this*, for
through the medium of half a dozen
words nnd a night together it was
given to Mary to read Salome.
To begin with, Jane wore chiffon
pajamas while Caroline wore a plain
and simple nightgown.

ENDEAVORING TO
START LACROSSE
AT KIMBERLEY
A meeting of Kimberley Lacrosse
Club recently took place in the I.O.O.
P. Hall, Kimberley.
The chair was occupied by Mr. T.
Summers, president of the club, and
Mr. H. M. Hellieson, secretary-treasurer, was also present.
The accounts covering last year's
operations were submitted, and disclosed n balance on the wrong side.
Some discussion, as to the possibility of putting on a "smoker" for
the purpose of raising funds, took
place, but, while the gymnasium
branch of the A, A. A. is anxious to
assist, it is feared that this will be
impracticable owing to the scarcity
of performers in the line of boxing
and wrestling in Kimberley.
T, Whittingham was asked to solicit donations (not exceeding two
dollars per bead) from merchants

ARTICLE No. 26
In the great majority of hands the
proper lead is not difficult. Every now
and then, however, a player will hold a
hand that puzzles him as to the lead.
The correct decision in such cases means
a game saved or at least a trick or so.
The writer noted three such hands tbe
other evening and in every one of them
the correct opening lead nude a tremendous different'..'.
Hand No. 1
Hearts —K, J, 7, 2
Clubs —Q, J, 8, 4
Diamonds — 4
Spades — A, Q, 9, 4
Y
A       B
Z
No score, rubber game. Z dealt and bid
one diamond, A doubled, Y bid three
diamonds, and B three spades. Z bid
four diamonds, A four spades, Y five
diamonds and B and Z passed. A doubled and all passed. What should A
open? This Is certainly a difficult hand.
if he hadn't forced his partner tp bid by
his informatory double of one diamond,
the ace of spades would be the logical
opening, but as B's bid Is in answer to
A's double, A is not justified in assuming that B holds the king of spades.
Both the club and heart leads are questionable so the proper lead seems to be
the four of diamonds. The fact thut A
holds three suits, all of which he would
prefer to have led to him, makes the
trump opening with this hand the ideal
oae. As a matter of fact, it was the only
owning that would have saved game.
With this opening the five diamond bid
was defeated one trick.
Hand No. 2
Hearts — K. J, 6, 2  -	
Clubs -B, 3,2 i     Y

No score, first game. Z dealt and bid
one club, A and Y passed and B bid
oue spade. Z and A pawed and Y bid
four clubs. B bid four spades, Z doubled, A passed, Y bid five clubs, B and
Z passed. A doubled and all passed.
What should A open? In this hand tbe
trump opening seem* the Ideal one.
With the trump opening, the five club
bid can be defeated two tricks. With
any other opening, it can be defeated
only one trick. Note that in both of
these hands the bidding of both opponents indicated very clearly that
they held practically all of the trump
strength, so that a trump opening
would not cause A's partner to lose a
trump trick. Don't make trump openings unless having three suits well protected and unless you know that the
opening will not make your partner
lose a trump trick. They are perfect In
hands as just given out, but should be
used with great discretion.
Hand No. I
1 learts — none .—_——
Clubs —6,5 :     Y      i
Diamonds—K,J,10.S,4,3 iA B:
Spades—K, 10,9,8,2     t     Z      :
No score, rubber game. Z dealt and bid
four hearts, A and Y passed, B doubled
and all passed. What should A open?
A should open the spade suit. If Z's
preemptive bid of four hearts la correct,
it should indicate weakness in spades,
the other major suit. If that ts correct,
A would be leading up to weaknese in
Z's hand, always a good play. The only
other choice A basis the diamond lead
and that seems a bad opening, A has a
minor tenace In diamonds and should
watt for a lead In that suit from B.
There really seems no choice but for A
to lead spades. The lead should be either
the eight of spades, fourth best, or the
ten of spades, the top of the Intermediate sequence. The spade opening will
defeat the four heart bid by two tricks
but the diamond opening will enable
YZ to make five odd In hearts, quite a
difference.

prospects of some excellent strikes.
Expansion in the Sullivan mine and
concentrator plant is going on apace
and throughout the mining area activity is noticeable. Cranbrook is
sharing in this prosperity and bids
fair to show substantial growth in
population and business strength in
the next few years."—Lethbridge

E. B. Offin has been busy preparing
to plant trees in the plot of land
round the government building. They
will be put. in almost all round the
place, about forty in all. This will
recall to many people of longer residence here that at one time the site
of the government building was a
veritable grove of tnll cottonwood
trees, which grew profusely in the
damp soil there, there being a good
deal of water in that locality before
the ground was graded up a higher
level. The trees were gradually cut
out, und now more are being planted,
It does not seem likely from present indications that Cranbrook will
see very much association football
this season, unless prospects improve
considerably from the way they seem
at present, This is the reverse of
conditions in Kimberley, where there
are four teams formiifg, and where
nn East Kootenay league has been
formed. In addition to the four
Kimberley teams it wns hoped that
Cranbrook and Wardner would also
provide teams, and also some points
from the Crow's Nest, such as Fernie
and Michel. This, however, has not
been definitely decided.

A speciul meeting of the city council held last Thursday produced a
great deal of discussion, but not very
much recorded business. The rnte
bylaw and the percentuge addition
bylaw were given their final readings
and passed, and in connection with
the sidewalk construction proposed,
it was finally decided to have the
city engineer go ahead with the proposed new sidewalks on Louis Street
and the streets north, which have been
laid out. Tenders hod been received
hy the works committee on the curb'
ing for these wulks, but as the city
engineer's figures were a good deal
lower, it was decided to have the city
undertake the work themselves.
