one, as tbe defunct Chinaman wai
not very well ofi in worldly goods,
hence there was an absence ol the

scattering of red hits of paper and
the mysterious rites at the grave.
It took about an hour to dispose ot
the corpse, hut if the deceased had
been a man of wealth, all thc pomp
and glory of the death ceremony following the death ot a son ot the
Orient would gave been observed.

This was a civil action lor damages
brought by Peter Jensen, Jacob Nelson, Robert McNair and Nels Johnson, all of Wasa, against the Canadian Pacific railway for trespassing
upon and cutting and taking away
Limber from three mineral claims
owned by the plain tills, vi/.: the
Golden Key," "War Eagle" and
'Evening Star," situate on Skookumchuck creek, East Kootenay. The
plaint ill's recorded these claims in
1898 nnd, since that time, performed
all assessment work required by law
and did considerable development
work as well. The defendants, the
C.P.R., were thc holders ot timber
licenses overlapping these mineral
claims, obtaining these licenses some
i ears ago from J. A. Broley, the
original locator, but subsequent to
tho recording ot the mineral claims.
During last winter, the defendants'
Workmen entered on tlie ground covered by the plaintiffs' mineral
claims ami over au area of about
forty-two acres cut seven hundred
lies'and three hundred and fifty logs,
besides doing other damage ot a less
serious nature, and an injunction was
obtained to prevent further cutting.
The plaintiffs claimed that, though
not owning the timber, they had a
light to the use of it tor mining
purposes in future development work
nul claimed damages accordingly. The
letendahts claimed thc right to cut
by virtue ot their timber licenses
and also that the mineral claims
were mere prospects and not injured
by the trespass referred to. Twelve
witnesses were examined tor the
ilntnttffs' and five tor thc defendants'
md some expert evidence was given
in both sides as to the probable
lalue of the mineral claims. Judgment was given for the plaintiffs for
M-iOO damages and the costs of action. Also a continuous injunction
against further cutting by the defendants. J. A. Harvey, K. C, and

found it and gave it to Leach, who
•iidorscd it and obtained money on
it.    Ho was tound guilty.
The remainder ol thc day was taken up with civil cases. The grand
jury inspected the public buildings
ol thc city.
Tlie grand jury thought that under
present circumstances, with so much
uncomplete building going on, and
conditions following the fire being
only partially ameliorated, they
would not care to make any presentment or recommendations at thc present time.
On Wednesday tbe Rameara case of
attempting to extort money hy
threats and breaking jail was taken
up. The evidence, while almost entirely circumstantial in the matter
of blackmail was nevertheless ot
such a nature that the jury bad no
difficulty in deciding that thc prisoner was guilty. Among other evidence there was produced a piece, ot
paper with a torn edge that had lieen
found in the possession of the accused and which fitted exactly the piece
on whieh the Blackhand letter was
written. An expert on chirography
compared the writing in the letter
with thc prisoner's signature as It
appeared on the register ol tbe Roma
hotel and pointed out several similarities.
Leach was sentenced to seven
mouths imprisonment but as his sentence dates from thc time of his incarceration in jail his time has nearly expired.
Rameara was given toutteen years
hard labor.
The Lockhart case was put over
till the tall assizes in Nelson.

One of the first hotels in Cranhrook was the Canadian hotel, and
it was built by Joseph Brault, who
is still its owner and manager. The
original building was unpretentious
in size and modestly furnished, hut
thc policy adopted at the start was
to give the very liest possible tor the
money, and that policy has been the
foundation of Mr. Brault's success in
Cranbrook. During the succeeding
years tlie hotel building has heen added to until now it figures among
tlw largest in town and it is lilted
and furnished throughout in a manner that reflects credit upon the
proprietor and thc establishment. As
a result the Canadian hotel fs doing
a most prosperous business, its many
rooms being filled most of the time,
Mr. Brault is recognized as one of
the substantial citizens ot Cranbrook
and one wlm has evrf heen ready to
lend a helping hand In any movement
tor tbe advancement of the city.

said they did not need cruisers down

Three Norwegian whalers, the
Edda, Samson and Hercules, left
Plymouth recently for Sanitation),
Norway, on their return from the
ulhein seas, where tbey had   been
 haling    expedition,    in the
if which over six hundred
whales were captured. The season
lasted four months, and is the most
successful on record, 11,000 barrels ot
oil worth Kill),OHO kroner (nearly
$235,000) having heen secured. Captain Sorlcc, of lhe Samson, who has
had sixteen years experience of whaling, described the method ot whale
bunting pursued by the vessels. In
the bows of the craft is a small cannon from which a harpoon, the head
of wliich contains an explosive, is
filed. The harpoon embeds itself in
lhc flesh, and the explosion follows,
Kilting (he whale almost instantly.
Sometimes it happens that the
charge does not explode, and an cx-
ciiing time follows. Captain Sorlee
bud an experience of this kind with
a huge blur whale. Thc whale was
struck iu the side with a harpoon,
and then away it dashed. The crew
paid oul hundreds of fathoms ot
1-inch tope,     which was attached to
he harpoon, but so fast did the
wlnile swim, towing the Samson     in
ts    wake,    that a tremendous    how
.avc    was     created,     and     almost
wamped the vessel. Thc captain
resorted to the device of working bis
iigims three-quarter speed astern,
the power being then about ten
knots, but all the same the whale
towed tbe Samson ahead. Por tour
is this battle continued until the
Ihcr becoming wild ami stormy

not seen again.

-caused such a stir in Brixton high
oud, London, recently, tha* the
lolicc had to disperse the people who
gathered to gaze at it.    Probably it
the first hat in London to torm
reason of a police report, as the
ollicers who were called had to notify iu their superiors the cause ol
the "disturbance," and what was
done. The wearer ot the bat, who
was herself a widow, intended to do
some shopping and drove to Brixton
a taxi-cab, but the hat caused the
plans to be upset. The wearer, when
she alighted from the cab, found the
tt ten Hon ot the people around ber
i vet ed upon thu hat, with its sweeping ostrich plumes, black and pearl-
vvliite, curling along the brim. The
umbers ot the hat-gazers grow, and
to escape annoyance the wearer took
leftige in a shop by Hrixton station
nnd explained the position to the
proprietor, Hut tire crowd outside
still increased and spread to the
oadway, interfering with thc passing of the tramway cars and omni-
tuses. Six constables asked the
jieople to "Pass along, please," but
is soon as one crowd went another
enme, for the news ot the hat bad
spread rapidly. Then a stratagem
was tried. It was announced the
hut would leave the shop by the
back door, and thc people hurried
there. At once a hansom-cab was
ailed to the front door, When tbe
horso had been quietened, the wearer
nul the bat edged sideways into the
cab ami were driven away.
A week or two ago the inhabitants
of the town of Ilelston, Cornwall,
celebrated the "Furry" festival. In
tho early hours of the morning the
young fofk went out into the country
to collect flowers and green boughs,
On their return they danced through
the narrow streets to the strains ot
the "Furry" dance, an ancient Celtic
melody. Later a ballad termed the
"llal-and-tow" was chanted, the
first four lines of which are as follows:
Robin Hood and Little John,
They both are gone to fair Ot
And we will go to thc merry greenwood
To see what they do there O!
Then came the ollicial dance through
the lown to the accompaniment of
the inevitable "Furry" music. Headed by the mayor and bis partner, tlie
dancers entered every house festooned with flowers, going in at the
front hnd coming out at the back,
and vice versa, ringing bells and
bunging knockers as they went. According to tradition, the festival is
iu celebration of thc victory ot St.
-Michael over a licry dragon, which
threatened the town wltti destruction. A crude pictorial representation of the saint's deed ot valor
forms ihe town arms of Helston.
The "German scare" grows apace

tbe center ot London, together with
T't.imii rounds of ammunition for thc

Sir John attaches some importance

A man whose wife applied for a
separation order at Tottenham,
North London, recently, is not only
supported by his wile, but he actual-
obtains wages trom her. "My
husband has a disinclination for
work," the woman stated, "and I
have kept him since 1002. I gave
him food and sent it up to his bedroom. If it is not exactly to his
liking he sends it down again, with
some sarcastic remark. Sometimes
lie cleans my windows, hut I have to
pay him for doing so. I am a
machinist, and once he took some
work to the city for mc. A little
while later he said, "You have not
paid mc for that." As public opinion has not yet been educated up to
this standard of home lire, the magistrate told her that if she left her
husband she could obtain an order.
"Do not pay him any more wages,"
was the magistrate's parting advice.
When Henry Gorman was sentenced
at the Liverpool assizes recently to
fourteen years' peual servitude for
feloniously wounding his wife
he created a scene by making a
violent effort to get out of tlie dock.
He apparently wanted to reach his
wife, lo whom he shouted, and it required the combined strength of five
wardens to wrench him from the railings of the dock and remove him bo-
low to the cells. It appeared that
in January last Mrs. Gorman left her
husband, but on March 31 he met her
and stabbed.her savagely three times
in the shoulder. A police constable
afterwards withdrew the weapon
from the wound. Although her injuries were serious the woman fortunately recovered.

It is currently reported that D. C.
Corbin, ol the Spokane-International,
has commenced building operations
ou the extension of his railroad
Irom McGiilivray to bis coal property, fourteen miles south, which it
is proposed to extend to tho boundary line.
lt is stated on authority, presumably authentic, that in this case the
Corbin interest is working in conjunction with thc Chicago, Milwaukee
& Puget Suund, which recently won
a strenuous race from tbe Great
Northern iu efforts to be first to locate a line up the Flathead river in
Montana to the International boundary, lt is said the Milwaukee
and Corbin lines will join at the
boundary and the Corbin road furnish the Milwaukee its desired connection with thc coal llelds ol South-
Eastern British Columbia and South-
Western Alberta.
There seems good reason to expect
to sec within a year, direct rail connection Ior this coal field with thc
extensive Montana market.
Other railroad news ot an encour-
uging nature to this district is
gleaned Irom thc movements ot the
Western Canada Railroad company,
the Butte to Calgary line proposed
hy the Lynch, Kenastou-Robertson
people, owners ot the Canada West
mine at Taber and ot Immense coal
tracta in Allierta and British Columbia. This company was granted a
charter by the federal parliament

been endeavoring lo get a guarantee
ol l„,n,ls from tho Alberta government similar to that grunted other
companies during the inst session ot

A few years ago the people said
thai the "Old Man" was crazy when
he persisted in saying tliat the time
would come when'the lands id this
district would be in demand. The
time is already here, hut the demand
will increase month hy month. We
have spent a good many dollars and
given columns in our paper the last
few years to educate the people to
this fact. Tbey believe it now and
tie people on the outside know It.
William Hamilton was called a fool

He said nothing hut kept on sawing

raise fruit here and today haa a

mako money knocking, nor can he
lav up any coin refusing to believe

A new scheme for holding funerals
has been inaugurated iu Lincoln,
Nebraska, by a wealthy lamily that
recently suffered the luss oi the head
of lhc house by death. Instead uf
those whu attended the funeral seeing
the dead lying in solemn state in a
coffin, the deceased was placed in a
natural posilion on a sofa, his head
propped u]i by pillows and one leg
allowed to drop over the side of the
sofa with the foot on the floor. It
is said that this was done to take
away the horror of a coffin being iu
sight at the time of the ceremony.
After the services every one retired
hut the undertaker, aud the body was
then placed in the coflin and taken
lo the grave. This scheme might
even be improved upon. Thc deceased might he placed iu a natural position at a table and the body so arranged as to be apparently reading a
book or eating a meal. However, it
is hardly probable that there will he
any general departure from the old
lime custom. Death is death, and it
is impossible to eliminate any uf the
features of sorrow or seriousness,
Hritish Columbia is recognized as
the coming province of the Dominion
uf Canada.
The Herald will venture this prediction: Next year will see more
people coming to South Kast Kootenai' than anyone ever dreamed of.
They will come with the money and
ihey will come with the intention of
becoming permanent settlers. That
is one uf the features of progress
that is going fo make Cranhrook and

There is a man who is largely Interested in fruit lands in the Yakima
valley in Washington, He visited
Kast Kootenay not long ago and
after a thorough investigation stated
ihat he was going lo dispose of his
holdings iu Washington ami come to

llie Yakima valley is a great Iruit
country, hi- said it was on account
of llie greal market that wc had in
this country. That is the secret of
the whole proposition. Wc have the
market right at onr door and it is a
market that is constantly improving.
That is one of the reasons why so

South Kast Kootenay.
Some weeks ago the Herald had an
article on the question of local op-
lion and took the position at that
lime that if the people decided in
favor of such a measure the hotels
should be recompensed for the loss of

the Herald:
When men have invested money
in good faith in a business whieh
is protected by law like any 1
other business, to pass a law
which makes the investment all
but a total loss is to break faith
and practical confiscation. The
process is un-llritish to say the
least, aud ready unjust. The
Hritish wny is the best, and tlie
liritish way is for the state to
make compensation to private individuals when it suppresses hy
law a legitimate trade.

not think that you could do a lot
for your district aud town by sending 11 copy of the Herald to friends

Interesting services were lichl in
(he Uaptlst church lust Sunday when
Uuv, Charles W. King, the new pastor, occupied the pulpit. Tlw morning text was from Revelation 1: 17-18
where John speaks of our Lord laying His right hand upon him with a
message uf assurance and power. In
the midst uf life's victories and defeats, in its many changes, problems, perplexities, temptations, dut
tes, our only sufficiency was in the
ail-wise, all-powerful, all-atoning
band of the Eternal Son of Ood. Mr.
king followed up this subject at the
evening service with tlie text in 1
liiiiuthy, i : 5, "The Man Christ
Jesus," holding him forth as the
world's only safe example and redeemer from the penalty and power
of sin. He preached with much acceptance to the people and was
greeted with a hearty hand shake by
the congregation at the close. The
choir rendered excellent service
throughout the day. There will be
a special reception and social evening to the new pastor this Friday

Courtesy is of greater value, and i

you love her. In other words, while
an outward compliance with the
statute makes marriage legal, nothing

Portage la Prairie, Man., June 15.
—Wheat ahout Iti inches. Acreage
about same. Wheat seeding completed May, 10. Oats ending May
11. Gat crop very good. Little
percentage increase in oats. Ilarley
all iu. No increase in barky acreage. No damage from frost. Kain
is desired for barley. Crop is as far
advanced as in 1908.
Carberry, Man., June 15.—The
crop is iu splendid condition, wheat
is up fully 10 or 12 inches, is well
studied out and is very strong and
vigorous. Oats and barley seeding
was completed some time ago and
must of thu crop is up and looks
well. All the grain is further advanced now than at this same time

district, hut this year about 10 per
cent mure laud than usual is seeded,
•Ae have had a little frost here or
two different occasions but not
enough to do the slightest damage.
Wn are not suffering (or want of rain,
imt a few showers would do good.
Macgregor, Man., June 15.—Although Uio spring was late, the
splendid condition of the seed bed
and the favorable weather have
brought the grain along so fast that
il is nearly us (ar advanced as other
seasons at this date; the blade is
from f! to 11 inches high nuw, according tu the time it was sown. The
IMh of May saw the linish of the
wheat seeding. Oats are all sown
and well up, the acreage being about
lhe same as last season; the great
percentage was sown belore the
illi of .lune. Ilarley is all planteil
with hut very few exceptions. Where
il is for the'purpose of cleaning the
laud the acreage will not tie quite
so great as last season. Kain is
badly needed, although nothing bas
suffered to any extent so far, as
there is plenty ol moisture at thc
roots of the crop. Nothing su far
seems to have heen injured with the
frost, although it is claimed by some
that tliere was a verv slight frost un
the 13th.
Brandon, Man., .lune 15.—The
wheal is now from 10 to 15 inches
high. There is no increase in the

lime last, year. The later sown
wheat, oats and barley are coming

Moosomin, Sask., June 15.—Wheal
never  looked bet ter ut   this season ol
the year. It is from 10 to 12
inches high. Tliere has been an
abundance uf rain and with the boi
weather the growth has been very
rapid. Oats and barley seeding is

Broadview, Sask., June 15.—Wheat
iu this district, except on spring
plowing, is from 8 to 10 inches high.
Seeding continued till May 25, while
outs have been sown as lute us May
30. Owing to lateness in getting on
the land the wheat acreage is less by
15 per cent than last year. There
is more hurley and probably 50 pel-
cent more laud in oats than last
year. Tliere has been no frost t
jure crops nud weather conditions
have been su favorable that the
wheat is now very lillle behind this
date last year.
Indian Head, Sask., June 15.—Thc
wheat In this distiict is anywhere
from 8 to 12 Inches iu height* and is
exhibiting the must rapid growth
possible. The wheat acreage is
slightly larger, probably 5 per cent
over last year, owilig lo new breaking iu the western part ol the district. Oats acreage is the same as
usual. As very little barley has
ever been sown here, it is as yet a
negligablo quantity. Wheat seeding
was all completed by May 15th, ami
oat seeding ul end ot May. Nut tho
slightest damage as yet from frost,
while we have had abundance uf rain.
There is little ur nothing to choose
between last and this year's crop
conditions al this date. Speaking
strictly without prejudice, we could
nut have conditions better than they
nre at present.
Kegina, Sask., June 15.—In district

tittle barley planted this season
around here, but excepting for a lew
odd patches barley all in. Acreage
will be about same as last season.
There has lieen no Irost since spring
opened up. Rain is uot needed fur
the grain, but a considerable acreage
lias been planted to grass and this
would he benefited somewhat bv a
shower of rain. Compared with
last year ut this time grain as a
rule is nearly as forward nuw as
then; heavy aud prolonged cold rains

cent. Barley is all sown with an
increased acreage of 50 per cent.
There have been no damaging frosts
and rain is not required. Thc condition of entire crop is better than
Strathcona, Alta., June 15.—
Weather for growing crops has been
ideal in this district for some weeks
ami prospects were never so promising. Spring wheat is now 8 inches
high, the seeding ot which ceased
ahout May 7th. Owing to the lateness ot spring the spring wheat area
is less than usual, but the (all wheat
will replace the spring variety to a
great extent, making the wheat area
about thc same as that of last year.
Oat crop is in excellent condition.
All seeding ceased about May 15.
Area under crop about 10 per cent
greater than last year. There has
beeu uo Irost to damage grain this
month. Crops would stand ? little
mun- rain, but arc not suffering.
Condition of crop is about same as
this date last year, while seeding
was later. Ideal weather conditions
have brought the growth up to that
of average season.
Outlook, Sask., June 15.—The early settlers say that never before in
their experience in this district have
top prospects looked so bright as
they do now. The land is in splendid condition, several showers of rain
having fallen recently and thc start
already given the crop Is such as
would practically ensure a good average crop even should no more rain
fall. This, however, will not probably l«' the case, as June is looked
upon as a good mouth aud everybody
is feeling happy.
Raymond, Alta., June 11.—Wheat

"WORTH" is defined as that quality or combination of qualities that
makes one deserving of esteem, trust, and honor. Now "WORTH" in
furniture is no more to be juggled with than a man's character. Some dealers
have an eye more to the profit account than to the quality of their goods.
A little patching here and varnish there, and then representing the article as
"just as good," is a common practice very much to be decried.
It is in every sense of the word worthy. We handle only good furniture
—furniture made in the good old fashioned way, and our prices are no
higher than are asked for inferior goods.
