Wagon Bridge al Wardner.
Jas. Ray, Dominion engineer, was in
Wardner last Wednesday evening to
make u brief examination of the river at
this point, with a view of reporting on
the best location for tbe wagon bridge
to be built by the government. The location decided upon was nl llie fool ot
Daly avenue.    	
River Appropriation.
The news that the appropriation made
by the Dominion government for improving the Kootenay river, would
probably lie expended between Wardner
and Fort Sleele, so as to give the mines
and Fort Steele tbe advantage of belter
water, to maintain connection with
Warduer, the railroad point, was received here with considerable pleasure.
This fact demonstrates tbe advantage of
a town that ia located on the raihoad
and river.

Contractor Reid, ao Ald.Time Horn.Blower.
It Is Alleged Is Willing to Instruct One.
Contractor Reid was in town Saturday,
aud expressed ihe opiuion that Cranbrook ought to have a brass band,saying that if they would organize one he
would give il instructions, as: he was an
old bandmaster. Some of the boys
smiled incredulously at the ideaofRetd
being a bandmaster, but Long Oliver
said the statement was all right as he
had often heard Reid blow bis bom;
McGIl chipped in anil said he too knew
it wns right for be had seen Reid playing the foghorn Oil a Newfoundland fishing smack whenever there was a fog;
McCarty wanted to know what IMcC.il
was doing oil a fishing smack when Reid
retorted thai he used to cul bait for him
while he fished, All Ibis was taking
place in the reading-room of lhe Koolcnay house when Reid chanced lo look
around and saw a talking machine— not
Pieper's, but a phonograph    belonging
to a traveling exhibitor; it had n brass
funnel attachment, resembling :i French
hoi 11, and Reid picking the hitter up,
told them be would show them whether
he cotlUI play or not, and said lhat he
would proceed to give them on Imitation
of Prof, l.evy playing the "Last Rose of
Summer," and he stinted in. At the
fust nolo McQuiston's dog Slim went
through the plate glass front; Slim went
up agalust a cougar once, and thoughl
there was another one linking round in
the vicinitj; then Reid produced n tie-
niola passage which sounded something
'he wail of lost Scotch spirits crcss-
cut by o heartrending strain resembling
mourn: lgs of a young man wilh an
attack of James Preserves; then a win-
low opened in lhe story above and a
voice shouted, "Glory, hallelujah! O,
Loid, I'm comiu'!" followed by a dull,
sickening thud on the outside. An investigation followed and Jack Laiuont
was found lying in a heap ou the pavement below; he recovered breath enough
to ask if Gabriel hadn't "btowed his
horn." He said be woke up and iho't
it was lhe call of Gabe, that he had a pair
of wings aud was going to Ily tight away
to heaven. McQuUtun explained matters to him, and helped him to his room,
Jack remarking tbat if Hint was an imitation (I Levy's music, he could easily
understand how it was that Levy's wife
was granted large alimony and a divorce.
Reid then essayed that good ohl French
hymn, "Paddy's Lament;" nt the first
blast Long Oliver fell off his cbaii and
bis legs and arms were afterward found
to be tied in such n hard knot that it

the paper commenced to peel of the wall
and tried to get out of the windows; the
perspiration rolled off McQnUtuu and
Frank said the next day that the scales
showed thai he had lost 20 pound * there-
bv; McGIl wns observed to be shedding
tears, and when asked what affected him
ao he replied that Reid'a music carried
him back to his boyhood da; a when he
worked in a boiler factory holding the
hammer inside while the rivets were being beaded, whereupon Reid retorted
that he bud always wondered bow McGIl had come by his boiler plate gall,
and then slated that he would conclude
by rendering ''Nearer My God to Thee,"
whereupon McCrimiuon, who had just
came out of a faint, told Reid that il he
put that hoi 11 to his rosebud lips again,
that moment would find him a whole lot

One of tbe conspicuous elements of
the torpedo's value is the fear which It-s
use excites. Tbe fact that Its location
Is secret and lis attack well-nigh Irresistible, says a contributor in Prank
Leslie's Monthly, gives It a power of In
tliuldntlon out of all proportion to its
actual potency, and makes fleets un
willing to face It. It caused terror and
demoralization at the battle of Llssa.
and later, iu the franco-German war of
1871, the French fleet was actually
frightened out of Prussian purls by the
rumor and belief that numerous torpedoes had been planted for tbeir reception. A striking Instance of the effectiveness of the torpedo is found In the
sinking of the Blanco En en la da In Chill
from Injuries thus Inflicted during the
revolution of 1801. The whole of President Balmaceda's fleet present had
Joined the Insurgents, when suddenly
his two swift torpedo vessels, the
Lynch and Condell, nrlved at Valparaiso. They were armed with two four-
teen-pounder guns and four torpedo
tubes. They Immediately attacked the
Blanco Encalada, and tlie Ironclad was
taken completely by surprise. She had
no protective net out, and no guard
boats were patrolling, while a portion
of the crew wns on shore. After two
or three futile attempts the Lynch np
proaehed tbe Encalada within fifty
yards and discharged a torpedo, which
struck the Ironclad abreast the engine-
room, The explosion was tremendous,
Many were killed, and the ship keeled
over and sank lu five minutes. The tor
pedo used carried a charge of about
fifty pounds of guncotton. Neither of
the attacking bouts was injured, and
this fact and the demonstration tbat
such a charge of guncotton striking n
vessel lu a vital part Is Irresistible, combined to give to the torpedo n prominence In naval equipment nnd warfare
It had uot beforo possessed.

Nut that ltev. Wetberb? Smiles was
n woman hater, but Mr. Smiles was
very high church Indeed. Unfortunately, St. James' nnd the pnrlsh people
were extremely low.
The rector felt that the clergy, to be
able to give their whole time and
thought to their work,Should live lives
of celibacy. He had felt at times a
strong drawing towards some ecclesiastical order lu which such vows would
be necessary. Then be would wear I
some outward sign of bis vows, nnd the

Tbe rector was young and good-looking; he had been lu Ids present pastorale less than a year, nnd he bad already
had an experience.

In the Bpr'ng sunshine nnd the trees
and bushes slowly bursting Into life,

nnd across the garden, beyond the low
hedge, was another garden which In
summer was full of color. He hnd noticed the brllilnut-hiieil beds tho year
before, but now tbo only bit of color
was n pale blue morning robe that flitted nbout the IncloBiire.
To tell the truth, the rector bad seldom noticed that morning gown or tbe
little woman Inside tt before. But It
pleased his fancy now to look ncross
the hedge nnd watch his neighbor.
lie recalled thnt his old major domo
had told llim tho cottage next tbe pur-
sonage wns occupied by a widowed
lady—a lonely creature who bad taken
up her abode there but shortly before
ltev. smiles wits settled over St, James'.
He remembered tho little figure In
black In one of the side pews, pointed
out to him by the clerk ns "Mrs. Scor-
rltch," and probably had not given her
a thought or glance afterward.
However, he saw so much of tbe pale
blue gown thnt first warm week lu
spring that he looked for the little
widow In her pew the next Sabbath.
She had laid aside her weeds nnd was
dressed In Borne clinging, fawn-colored material that made her i.m-i*. like
« very demure little moth. And sbe hud

the sweetest face lu ltev. Wetherby

On Munday morning the clerical
black appeared In'the rectory garden
nbout as soon as the pretty morulug
robe appeared over the hedge. The demure little face dimpled nnd smiled under Its garden hat at the rector's np-
proach, and tbe widow nodded brightly.
"You are early nt your gardening this
morning, Mrs. Scorrltch," he said.
"Yes, but It's so warm," she replied
In defense. "I am expecting my crocuses to appear any day now."
"I'm nfrald we'll see some frost yet,
Mrs. Scorrltch," said the rector.
"Now. don't talk that way, 1 beg!"
erled the little woman, clasping her
hands, Inclosed In long-wristed and particularly well-fitting gauntlets. "Just
suppose my crocuses should come up
nnd be frost bitten? Oh, the thought
Is too awful."
"I sincerely hope you will not be disappointed, but the climate Is uncertain."
Many were the conferences held
across the hedge regarding the proper
pruning of ruse trees, tbe planting of
hardy seeds, and tbe preparation of the
beds of earth. The rector bad never
suspected there wus so much detail iu
tbe business of gardening.
Oue morning, Just nfter a warm night
ruin, Bev. Smiles was culled to the
hedge by a little cry from his neighbor,
"They nre coming!" she cried In delight. "See! Here Is the denrest little
blade of green pushing up through the
mold—nnd there is another—and another!   Just look at them!"
Tbe rector found It uecessary to leap
tbe hedge (he hnd been something of nn
athlete nt the university, and certainly
this spring weather wus sending the
blood coursing through his veins quite
like old times) and look at tbe crocus
bed near to.
"They are such lovely ones," she snid
earnestly. "I don't believe you noticed
them nt nil lasl spring" (be pronounced
maledictions upou himself for having
been so blind as to miss so much beauty
the previous season), "but tbey will be
even better this year—If we don't have

But when he bad returned to his own
lonely domain and entered his study he
slopped aud thought seriously for a
minute. Then he cast bis fiat-crowned
ministerial hut upon the Horn- with
grent emphasis nnd exclaimed:
"It's my creed, I tell you, that a mnn
In orders should not marry!"
Now, there wns uo one visible to
argue  the  question,   aud   jut   there
seemed to be argument In Ills own
mind, for ltev. Wetherby Smiles smote
Ids palm with his clenched list angrily
and kicked the fiut-orowucd hat to tin
other end of ihe room.
For two days ibe rector of Rt. Jnnies'
rigidly stilled his Interest In crocuses;
his Interest lu creeds, however, was not
entirely Satisfying, f'n Sunday, after
vespers, he overtook ou his way home
a lliilc figure lu a fawn -colored gown.
"You must see my crocuses, Mr.
Smiles," she snid. "Tlie buds will be
Opeu before next Sunday."
The rector glanced gloomily at the
darkening sky, and thought thnt proba
bly thore would bo a frost that night.
But he could lint long think of frosl
uud other unpleasant possibilities uu
der the skillful manipulation of his
charming little neighbor,
He hesitated nl her gate, and again
croCUSdS triumphed over creed. The
crocuses were nourishing finely; the
creeds took a back sent -Indeed a very
unobtrusive seal lu the rector's memory.
His interest In lhe crocuses continued
that evening to so lute uu hour that
bis old servitor really thought he wns
not coining to supper aud cleared uwuy

"Never mind," snid the rector, kindly.
"I nm nut hungry," nnd when tbe old
man bad doddered off lo bed he sat
down before tfie open window of his
Chamber and stared out into tbe still
Ile sut (here for nn hour. A light
burned behind the curtain ut one of his
neighbor's windows. That was her
light, he knew. Finally It disappeared,
but be sat ou, his arms folded upon tbe
sill, his eyes glaring fixed Into the darkness. Creed was making a strong light
for life.

Theu he slipped ou a smoking Jacket
nnd went to tbe door. Tbere wus a light
haze upon the river and a shimmer of
frost iu tbe air.
"A bad night for the farmers and
fruit growers." he thought. Then bis
mind reverted to those crocuses. "They
will be black by morning," he said.
"Too hnd, and the little woman thinks
so much of ihem,"
He hesitated n m mien: an 1 then went
in ngnin. reappearing shortly with nn
old mackintosh.
"Just the thing-to spread before the
bed to defend them from the frost," he
muttered, and with long strides be
crossed the rectory garden and lenped
the hedge.
Feeling n good denl like a night

place he crept through his little neighbor's garden and approached the crocus bed. He started nt the slightest

Suddenly Just as he spread the covering over the crocus bed and wns turn-

upon the porch. He started, and his

motionless, stood upon Ihe lower step.
ltev. Wetherby Smiles wns startled,
but be wns not superstitious. For
some seconds, however, be stared at the
apparition beforo he recognized It. Then
he stepped quickly forward and began
(0 make excuses In a low voice.

He got no further In his faltering remarks. With a shuddering little cry
the figure tottered and would have fallen to the ground hail he not caught her

As 1 watched
her developing from narrow - minded
youth to beautiful, broad
womanhood l
trembled lest In the picture 1 knew she
portrayed of future perfect happiness
1 should be missing.
She was not a beauty ns the world
terms them, but tlie kindly smile and
true character her face reflected wero
more beautiful to me than perfect features. But her voice; whnt a voice lt
was! A clear, rich iuez/.o, aided by
perfect execution born of deep feeling
nnd power of Interpretation. She held
a position iu one of the leading churches In M—-, nnd there, I confess, I was
wonl to dud the sermon more Interesting than at my home church.
Une bright moonlight Sitbbnth, as we
strolled home from evening service, she
"How well .Mr. Stndly anng to-night!
What a beautiful voice he bus, Italph!"
Strange to say, I bad been thinking
how well her voice and his blended;
before 1 hnd answered she coutinned:
"lie Is so pleasant, too. We should
miss him more than nny of the others
tu ihe quartette if he should leave us."
"Yes, Elsie, he la a royal fellow. But
will you go with me on Tuesday to
hear Gnmpnnarl?   Ills voice Is better."
"I am sorry, Ralph, but Mr. Studly
asked me to accompany hint that evening nnd I consented.'*
"Well, he sings again on Thursday;
we can go then." uud so It wns decided.
The house was reached, and as we
entered I thought 1 hud never seen her
looking so well. Her eyes were hrlght
and sparkling, nnd the cold, crisp air
brought n rich damask to her round
cheeks. Removing her outer garments
in the hull, she started forward toward
the center of the pnrlor, aud ns she
did so 1 slopped her, and slipping my
arm about her, bent, nud, ere she could
Interpret my Intention, I kissed her.
Tearing herself away, her face ablaze,
she cried In a voice of deep anger:
"Ralph Moreland. how dare you—how
dure you Insult mc?" while I, all the
bolder because of her nnger, started
forward, nnd, possessing myself of
both her hands, snid:
"Elsie, angry with me, no"—as she
tried to free herself- "yon shall listen
-angry with one who loves you better
than his life, yes, better than all the
whole world   besides,  and  whose  one
ambition is to mako you his wife?"
With a low cry of anguish she started bnck.   1 released her then.
"0, Ralph," she suld, "1 never
thoughl you would do this. I thought
WO were too great friends." Two great
tears started and coursed dowu her
checks, now pale as death.

In vuIn I pleaded, and then n disagreeable thought forced Itself upon
me. Framing It In words, I said softly:
"Elsie, Is tlmre some one else?"
Trembling, she stood Ihere In the

small temple, out of proportion to the
Moslem conception of the first woman
(they claim she was -KM) feet tail) la
erected above the ashes. The structure is in bad repair, and, If It rained
