Farmers    Have    Increased    Acreage
and Everything Points lo a
itiMiiiiiiiii Harvest
Wednesday afternoon a representative ur tlu- Herald made a hurried trip
over Ht. Mary's prairie l» company
with Mr. Fred UubsoH, Cranbrook's
Irrepressible roal estate man; Mr,
Jui> Molt, wiiu formerly owned moBt
uf tin* prairie and a plonoor (armor of
that dlstrlot, and Mr. James Qroavos,
who can malui a Ford cm* climb a tolo-
graph pule or orawl Into a gophor
Part of tho drive was ovor tho liis-
torlc old roud whicli formorly was the
only route botwoon Cranbrook und the
Niifth Stnr mine, This rond tins been
abandoned by the government road
crews mid Is therefore one of tlio Uncut drives in tho country. Fur a pleasure trip in n cur we would advlso our
friends to ro over this roud, and It
might be well for the famous road
builders of Kast Kootenay tu take a
look at this highway.
The prairie is one wide expanse of
verdant green, waving wheat ileitis
and browsing llve stork. The prairie
reminds us of "down homo" and could
havo been the subject of a mure or
less famous picture which used to
hang In our bedroom and on which we
could gaze the flrst thing in the morning, It showed a clump of trees, a
purling brook, a few drowsy cattle,
birds In the trees aud un expanse of
meadow. We used to wish we were
a cow and had nothing to do but lay
ln the shade snd chew our "cud." The
prairie gives you that feeling but we
found those who are making a success of farming in that section, wasting very little time on tlte beautiful
scenery or the tang of the atmosphere, most of them being exceedingly busy wrestling dally with old
Mother Nature planting, plowing,
building. Improving, cultivating, etc.
And they are gradually transforming
the prairie Into the garden spot of
East Kootenay. St. Mary's Prairie at
this time of year is a revelation tn
the man who has never travelled much
around here. "Far t^wuy Holds may be
always green" but right now you
don't have to go to England's fields or
Hampshlre'e hills. Vou have it right
at borne just nereis the St.- Mary's
river, two hours walk from town.
Mr. H. H. McClure owns one of the
historic places on the north end of
the prairie, the old road'house still
standing on his farm. Mr. McClure
was busy finishing the setting out of
ten acres of new orchard. This he is
planting entirely to Wealthy apple
trees. There is u Cine patch of alfalfa
on his farm and with numerous live
stock this farmer is able to keep busy
and out of mischief, This spring he
has finished fencing the southern portion of his farm ..replacing an old
"stake and rider" fence that has been
doing duty for the past thirty years.
It is snid that this place once changed
hands for a sack of flour and a bottle
of whiskey. Even at tlie high price of
flour now it would be worth that
much per front foot.
One of the sights of the prairie Is
the three-year-old orchard or r, x
West, whioh contains four hundred
trees, besides small fruit shrubs.

orchard an* Italian prunes, the big

llnne   Act   ef   Canadian   Soldier   ln
Saving Wounded Comrade, Ite-
cclrcs Due Itceognltlon
('ranbrook can take pride in the
achievements of Samuel Victor Paterson, a former resident of this city,
who was prominently mentioned hi
the recent dispatches from Franco as
being the only Canadian so far to win
tlie D. C, M. medal. All of the Canadian dallies hnve published the photo
of tliis hero and the story of his exploit Is one which will add to the Immortal glory of the brave Canadian
soldiers wiio are laying down their
lives for the Empire today.
Accompanied by a companion this
soldier essayed to bring in n fallen
comrade who was in laying In front
of thc trenches and In the line of flre.
They were the mark for many Qerman
guns and Patersou'B companion was
killed just as they reached their man.
Paterson was wounded but In the face
of the terrific lire succesfully carried
his wounded comrade to safety.
Mr. Patterson was at cue time employed as city ticket agent succeeding
.1. Stanley Peck, when the latter engaged In business here. He was an
electrician anti was afterward in the
employ of Davis Brothers in this city.
Our neighbors to the south have been
accused of many things fur which
tiiere is absolutely no grounds. The
American people have been put down
as money grabbers and it bas been
said that he will stand for anything
so king us the dollar is behind it.
The Yank Is u pretty smooth customer all right, he loves the dollar it
is true, but he luves justice and  fair

it is one of the must Important
speeches made hy President Wilson
since be entered upon the duties of
llie chief executive. Tlie occasion was
such as to call oul an important utterance—heing the annua] meeting of
a great news association Whose influence extends beyond the confines of
the country, The time was propitious
also—the man and the hour met.
While the address is full uf meat nnd
abounds in seed-thoughts, tbere are
three ideas which stand out as of
special Importance.
First; The necessity for a real neutrality:
"The basis of neutrality, gentlemen. Is not indifference; it is not self-
interest. The basis of neutrality is
sympathy for mankind. It is fairness, it Is good will at bottom. It is
impartiality of spirit and of judgment.

Mrs. H. A. McKowan has came
forth with an original Idea that
should meet with the approval of
every householder In tho city. Mrs.
McKowan's Idea Is to the effect that
every householder In town spend an
hour or two on Empire Day ln digging out the dandelions fn the streets
and alleys adjacent to their lots. She
says: "It seems so absurd to spend
hours digging the plants from our
luwns only to have the seeds from the
streets drift over them In millions.
The dandelion soems to be more prevalent this year than ever before,
in fact ft seems to be dandelion year.
We are heartily In accord with this
move and believe, every effort should
be made to ercdlcate this little pest.
It can be seen growing on most every
street In Cranbrok this year, even
on Baker street, where there Is a
patch largo enough to infest the
whole city. The city gang could

British Prisoners in Germany
From lime immemorial prisoners of war have evoked pity and sympathy. Tbe
agony and humiliation of the British Prisoners must be indescribably acute and galling. But from that state of suffering there can be no redress, it being part of the fortunes of war, but tiie lack of comfort and food stands in a different category. This
want will grow In volume and intensity as the days go by.
As a result of an ofliciul organization having been created recently to carry parcels to the Brilisli Prisoners In Germany, insuring proper transmission through a neutral carrier, the "Khaki" Magazine of Imperial House, Kingsway, London, has started
a fund to supply food and comfortB for those who have no relatives or friends to look
after them, as it is known that these poor fellows are not getting a proper supply of
An appeal is made to you for Two Dollars only, as there are so many demands
made upon you in other directions. This money will go for the direct benefit of lhe
Prisoners, as there is no cost of transmission and no waste of any description, information having been established showing the kind of food and clothing, etc.. which can
be sent without confiscation by the German Government.
This appeal should get a large response as there is no other fund which deals with
this particular condition.
The "KHAKI" Magazine and Cabled News Sheet was created primarily as a gift
for the Overseas Soldiers, bringing them late news from their homes. It is now supplying, free of charge, in addition to tbe soldiers at the front and in training, the various hospitals in England and France, as well as the Grand Old Fleet. It is a purely
patriotic endeavor and in no way commercial.
When the "Khaki" Magazine was founded, amongst the many who gave their support and expressions of goodwill for the work it has undertaken, were:
The Duke of Wellington, K.C.
The Duke of Manchester.
The First Lord of the Admiralty.
The Countess of Zetland.

might he wise to consider whether the
site of the layout might not voll he

of whom alone had the misfortune to
survive her." The poet now lies beside her. Seott and .Sontliey, Thomson and Bulwor, Do Malstro and

glowing terms of the influence of

Sometimes we hurl her with
harsh words; but she loves us still.
We grieve her by neglect; but her affection never wanes. We may bring
her to the grave in gray hairs nnd anguish of heart; but the steady stream
of her affection follows us, and she
forgives even before we ask, and
without her asking. We may and do
forget to pray for her; but she never

possible love him out of his sin. A
mother's love is stronger thnn the
stoutest cable ever forged. It Is as

does not make It grow dim; it Is always bright and fragrant.
