And Speaks In the Highest Terms
of the Hospitality Shown by
Citizen* of Nanaimo
BUT DIDN'T VISIT THR COAL MINES
Nanaimo, 11. C, June 14. lyu.
Dear  Herald:   After   leaving Arrow*
head lake wc hud ll pleasant trip nf two
huiirfl to Revelstoke Ihrough n country
that must have cost thousands of dollars
per mile beside (he government bonus
to build a railroad. At Revelaioke I
found a peculiar (own. It looks a good
ileal like the mineral exhibit (hey
have at the station—tusty, dusty and
neglected. The town spreads over a
large territory, and Ihere ia a luck of
paint that gives the place a foresakeu
look. Pieper Sl Currie would go wlltl
over such a town. Yet, with lhe lnrge
payroll of (he C. 1*. R , and other re
sources, the (own should be a prosperous
We took the main line (rain Sunday
afternoon and lind a magnificent ride to
Vancouver, arriving at the Pacific const
terminus the next afternoon at i o'clock.
There is enough scenery on lhat trip to
satisfy tbe most exacting, and we were
fortunate in forming the acquaintance
of a quaint character, tbe chaplain of the
school at Yale, who gave ua a vast
amount of information about tbe country. Tbe Yale school, by the way, is
(he one where Mra. Krickson'* little
daughter Vera attends, and we were
pleased to learn that she was in good
health and doing well.
On this train also were two gentlemen
from the old Country. Their talk waa
chiefly npon various articles of food aud
the proper manner in which it should be
cooked. So persistent were tbey iu (his
line of (alk lhat everyone in the car became tired and disgusted. At last, a
little girl, wbo aat with her mother
across tbe aisle and bad been paying
close attention to tbe loud talk, turned
to her parent and in a voice tbat could
be heard by all, asked: "Mamma, are
both of thoae men cooks?" There waa a
ripple of laughter over the car, and the
two men wbo bad beeu attracting so
much attention subsided into absolute
alienee. 	
Vancouver ia a great town, and tbe
time la coming when she will be n wonderful commercial city. Her customs
tbis year will reach the million maik,
wblcb is sufficient evidence of ber iu
creasing greatness. There te shown on
every hand maika of Improvement.
Cosily blocka have been recently erected,
the C. P. K. station is a graiid architectural pile that dttnonatraies whal that
company thinks of (be future of thc
town. At ill docks arc ships from many
seas, ami traffic is ci-uatauily on thc Increase. We bad (be pleasure of visiting
the Hmptess of Japan, the finest passenger steamer on the Pucific ocean, and
Mrs. Simpson nud myself were shown
every courtesy while ou board.
After a day In Vancouver we took a
boat for Nanaimo. It was a most delightful tide aiming many pretty islands
where various scenes of transcendent
beauty were presented. Arriving at
Nanaimo Ihere was a grand rush for
quarters at the oveicrowded hotels, thc
delegates to the grand lodge, I O. O. V.
filling tbe lobbies ofthe hotels mid raising Cain with their loud demands for
rooms. Tbe Uld Man had nent a little
telegram from Vancouver, however, uml
while the rest were shouting he and his
wife were being shown to pleasant rooms
in tbe Wilson house.
Improving On Nature
Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makes
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting
garments which set off a good figure and Improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling at less than double our price.

Thefioth Century Tailors, Cranbrook, B. C.
Nanaimo was discovered In 1850, and
It looks it. A man walking down the
main street will meet himself. It ia
laid out regardless of angles, corners,
precedent, beauty, system or common
sense. Tbe ehlef products bere aie coal,
babies and flowers, aud the lown is full
of each. There are tome beautiful
places here but paint la an undiscovered
element here as yet. Here you will see
a beautiful front yard, resplendent with
flowers and shrubbery, and in the center
on the neat lawn, a pile of coal damped,
Tbey are proud of their coal and their
kids, and both are dirty. But aa to hospitality, bere we found it pure aud simple. The meu were shown every courtesy, and thc visiting ladies bave been
given every care. Kuterlainuients have
been provided and everything done to
make tbe visit a pleasant one in eveiy
respect. Yesterday all of the grand
lodge were invited to visit either the
coal mines or the brewery. Some went
tu the cosl minis, and Old Man Simpson
went—well, it ia nol necessity lo go iuto
details. 	
Tonight the program closes witli a
large banquet nt the opern house. Tomorrow morning wc will take the train
for [Victoria, tIiiih getting a ride filling
the island. From there we go to Seattle
and Tacoma, ami then turn homeward

Ii the Wla-ier-aerc Coaalry.
E. II. Small and Art Malllsson returned Moutlay from the Windeitueie
couulry. where lhey spent a week on u
business und pleasure ttip combined
Mr. Small, who lived in that diatrict for
a number of yean, said that tbere is considerable activity iu thut couutry, aud
that besides the numerous mining properties now being developed, au immense
amouui of government work is also being done, ns the appropriations for that
district were very large. One coutmet
for a road ia miles long, ruuniug from
Peterborough to No. 2 creek, has beeu
let, the price being $15,000. Mr. Small
nlso statea tbat Captain Armstrong has
gone lo Jennings for thc purpose of
bringing tbe steamer Ninth Star up nnd
placing her in coin mis-ion 011 the Upper
Columbia, as there is a great quantity of
ore to be handled in that district and
transportation.'facilities are limited. Mr.
Small says that the country, iu genetul,
is going ahead at a rapid rale and thut
lhe people have unbounded faith in its
future, and be also claims Ihnt il is lhe
prettiest place iu the whole piovince.
PrcKitalioi to J. F. Araitroig.
Ou Suuday last Mr. Armstrong wna
made lhe recipient ofa very hnudsome
clock, presented by the pariahioners if
Cbiist cbutcb. Tbe clock with an address waa preseuted to him after morning service and Mr. Armstrong acknowledged the gift in a few welt chosen
woids. Ile rtfeired to the substantial
nature of the article, and that he waa
getting on in years and might not bave
many years enjoyment iu Ibe use of it,
but that it would be handed down to hia
children, who he was sure would treas
ure it in iheir time as much aa he would
in his. He referred to his pleasant con
nection with the parish in tbe past and
lhe interest he should always have in it
in the future. Thc clock Is 1 handsome
article in oak case, and with cathedral
'hiiiies, a correct imitation of tbose of
Westminster Abbey.
Bicycle vs. Horse.
As an outcome of in argument held at
the club one evening last week, iu which
aeveral local sports were mixed up, a
race will in ill probability be arranged
from Cranbrook to Port Steele, between
a horse and • bicycle, to demonstrate
which can mike the better time. Quite
a sum of money may change hinds ou
the result of tbe race, tbe hackers being
•bout evenly divided aa lo their favorites.
The distance is twelve miles, but there
ate several medium used hills to be encountered, and should the contest take
place.it will be • wai in oue, witb Ibe
odds about even. It ia said tbat Hyde
Haker will ride the horse, while M. A.
Iteale will he the artist on the wheel,
Tbe distance must be made In less than
one hour.

Rev. Robeit Reid md wife will leave

It has long beeu an established fuet
lhat the Ferry creek milling section,
with n little rapital and plenty of bard
work, would prove one ot the richest
portions of South K.ist Kootenay. Not
only is there paying placer diggings on
the creek, but also Immense ledges of
gold bearing rock, which will net many
a fortune at uo distant dale. Ii is also
well known that Cranbrook is the natural supply point for tbis territory but up
to n short time ago Iin attempt had been
made by the rlllsena ol this town to
secure the trade- which would conic from
there, nnd which could alone he obtained
by connecting the two places by n gootl
wagon road.
Atrnut a week ago several members of
the board of trade, urged 011 by a few
property owners on Perry creek, took up
the matter, and the consequence was
that a communication wns sent to the
lepartment ot public worksat Victoria,
askiug for a donation of f •*.*..■ wi h which
to begin work ou tbti nud, at it was a
crying necessity lo the property owners
on the creek, in getting in supplies In
answer lo this request a telegrsm was
received yesterday morning from tbe
minister of public works, which contained lhe welcome information that the
appropriation had been gran'ed. tbe
money to be available on June 30 In
addition to this $500, it is quite probable
tbat lite citizens of Cranbrook will raise
it least $ 100 more, and with this sum-
together with good workmen a road
should be constructed by July 31, that
will meet with all requirements. This
will be good news both to the m uers and
prospectors on tbis Imtoric creek, and
the citizens of Cranbrook, and as Craobrook is Ibe natural supply point, the
business of tbe towu will be greatly increased, especially so, as Irom all accounts this will be a very busy year in
thatsectioo, there beiug a great many
men at work now, witb more going iu

EDITORIAL    NOTES,
British Columbia Is today one of the
richest provinces In Canada. Is resources are unequaled In ihe whole
Dominion, and what It needs just now
Is brains at the head ol Us government.
Six years ago Nelson was about the
slz-s tbat Craubrook ts today. Crat.
brook has even belter opportunities
than Nelson had, and all that Is necessary la for tbe people of Cranbrook to
stand together. In unity of action there
li strength, and such a course will bring
success to Cranbrook and ber people.
Moyie Is Improving rapidly In a com*
merclal way. There Is every reason for
ltut. Moyie Is built on a solid founds*
tion—silver sod lead.
Calebrate 1> jmlulon Day at Cranbrook
and enj iy life.
Cranbrook today has more fine bouses,
more nicely painted houses, more well
kept premises, more sidewalk* aud more
evidence of prosperity than any town of
, Its size In Drill-ill Columbia.
A lot of Hnancial kings of tbe United
States paid a formal visit to England's
King the other day.
Carnegie gave away 51,000,000 tbe
olher day. That amount would make s
big bole in our pile.
Nelsou merchants have Inaugurates! a
movement whereby the business plscea
of the town remain closed on Thursday
afternoons, aud ln consequence the
Tribune predicts that the wholesale
busiuess of the town will certainly goto
hades. 	
Tbe Nelson Miner says that sou pounds
of red fire have been received lu tbat
towu for the Dominion Day celebration
Tbe Miner does not stale how much red
firewater will be used.
The c tfzans of Moyie are jubilant
over the fact that tbeir waterworks
plant will soon be In working order.
We can't possibly see what particular
use the citizens of that towu bave for
water. 	
The Canterbury Outcrop celebrated
Its first bltthday last week. Here's
hoping thc Outcrop will celebrate many
more of them.
ALL   OVER   TIIE   PROVINCE.
The Nelson Tribune is now being set

The steamer City of Windermere is
now making regular trips between
Golden and Windermere*
Railway construction in the Lardo ia
now under way, and in consequence that
section is enjoying a great influx of
people.
The ore shipments from tbe Slocan

THE WINNIPEG INDUSTRIAL.
There could be no better mirror
held up to the rest, of Canada und
the world in general to reflect the
march of progress of the Canadian
Northwest than the Winnipeg Industrial exhibition, lt is, in every ns-
pect and detail, representative of the
west, and the success of tlie exhibition is synonymous with the suuceta
of the country. Tlie extraordinary
showing made in the live stock department at Inst year's exhibition
osta-bltshod beyond doubt the fuel,
tlmt Manitoba is a breeder's paradise. Tliis feature of the fair was
unique In the respect that it. wuh the
largest exhibition of live utock Uie
world Iiiih ever Hi*en nnd alsO in the
respect thnt it contained the htrgesi
individual exhibits this or tiny other
country hns over produced There
nre nn idle Words,  hut   call bn easily

lion. The management of Lho oxhi-
hlbitloti promises Hint this wonderful Showing will ho eclipsed Ihis yenr
ami thai many other new features
will  be ndded  to    lhe    full*.    A long
list of Un* most brilliant mul costly
varioty attractions hns boon booked.
The Winnipeg liidustrinl Is tho one
ureal, annual ovtpit, which the fanners, I rudcsinen, business men n ml
the people generally cannot afford to
miss. As an educational factor, an
unending source of entertainment and
amusement, and an invaluable indication of    the   country's    ind.inriul
and commercial resources it is not
exceeded by uny yearly exhibition in
Canada nr the United Stntes.
QUAINT COLONIAL NAMES
How the Offspring of Onr Flrnt Colu-
hIh-u Were Chrl nte tied.
It Is nn Interesting study to trace the
underlying reason for mauy of the curious names which are given to tbe oil
spring of the flrst colonists. Pii rents
searched for names of deep signili
ennce—for nnmes appropriate to con
ditions, for those of profound inilii
ence presumably on the child's life.
The Rev. Richard Buck, one of the
early parsons In Virginia, in days of
deep depression, named his flrst child
Mara, This text indicates the reason
for bis choice: "Call me Mara, for tlle
Almighty has dealt very bitterly wltii
mc. I went out full, and the Lord hns
brought me home empty." Ills second
child wns christened Gcrshom — for
Moses' wife "bare bim a son and called
hts name Gershom, for he snid I bave
been ln a strange land."
Many names have a pathos and sadness which cnu be felt down through
the ceuturles. Dame Dlnely, widow of
n doctor, or barber surgeon, wbo hail
died In the snow while striving to visit
a distant patient, named her poor babe
Kathergone.
Tbe children of Roger Clapp were
named Experience, Waltstlll, Preserved, Hopestlil, Waif, Thanks, Decide,
Unite and Supply. Madam Austin, an
early settler of old Narragansctt, had
15 children. Tbeir names were Parvls,
rieus, Piersus, Prlsemus, Polyblus,
Lois, Letttee. Avis, Anstice, Eunice,
Mary, John, Elizabeth, Ruth, Freelovo.
All lived to bo threescore and ten, one
to be 102 years old. Edward Kendall's
children were named Tmegrace, Reform, Hoped For, More Mercy ond Restore. Rlehnid Grldtey's offspring
were Return, Believe and Tremble.-

It relieves the drooping spirits of those with

"By tbe way," lie inquired, scrutinizing her from hend to foot, "what have
you been doing, sifting nshes or plowing
the back yard to put in a crop of winter

"Tills is my bousecleaning dny," replied Mrs. Johsou, "and the clock la

"Oh, Hint's It, Il it? You didn't bnve

"I wns just nbout to go up ntnirs to

"That's ail tight wbnt yon were just

Questreet, wbo Isn't no much behind you
hi tlio mutter of yenrs, always looks
pinked up nnd diked out hi frilly wrappers and things every time we linppcu to

"Not much behind me in the matter
of yenrs!" ejaculated Mra. Jobson. "Mrs.
Questreet is eight yenrs older thnn I nm,
if Bhe's n day! And wo never hnppcn to
call upon her at a time of duy when ahe'a
clenniti*. house, nnd, tiirliicrmore, Bhe

have nil thc money she wants to shop,
and those pretty wrappers thnt you're
talking about"*—
"If Questreet gives his wife any more
money to buy these dinky things that
make women look nice then I give you,
then I'd Just like to know lt, thnt's nil,"
Interrupted Mr. Jobson. "If you haven't
got house duds liko Mrs. Quest reefs,
why don't you go aud get 'em? What's
more, there's no reason why you should
do any work whatsoever around tbis
house. Just you let the servant girl do
the jumping up and gallivanting around
when you want anything or I want anything and devote your time to keeping
yourself looking nent and pleasing."
Mrs. Jobson didn't make any reply,
but went up stairs snd made herself
ready for dinner.
When Mr. Jobson got home on the following afternoon, Mra, Jobson, looking
very splendiferous Indeed, met him at
the door. She wore a new and handsome baby blue tea gown, with a lot of
cream colored lace scattered over it. Her
huir looked ss If It had been done up by
a hairdresser. Her feet were incased In
neat red morocco slippers, with gilt cord
sewed on them.
"Well, wbnt are you all rigged out
that way for?" asked Mr. Jobson.
"Why, don't you remember what yon
said last evening?"
Mr. Jobson did remember all of a sudden, ai sbe snw by hte expression, and
be didn't say anything more,
"How do you liko my new tea gown?"
Inquired Mrs. Jobson cheerily, holding
out the fkirt In ber bands. "I got it today for almost nothing—$34—at a sale."
"It's great," replied Mr. Jobson in a
husky sort of tone.
"And 1 got half a dozen pairs of those
lovely silk stockings, different colors, for
only $2 a pnir," went on Mrs. Jobson.
"1 nm so fond of silk stockings for bouso
wear, and 1 know how you like silk
itockings."
"Like 'em? I love 'cm!" gulped Mr.
Jobson.
"1 got these red slippers becnuse you
iremed to like Mrs. Qiiestrect's pair, thnt
■re just like these, so much," continued
Sfrs. Jobson,   "Do yon like them?"
"They're orientally magnificent!" said
Mr. Jobson In a weak sort of tone. "Now
let's bave dinner.   I'm hungry."
Instead of tripping down tbe stairs,
is sha usually did, to superintend the
placing of the dinner on tbe table, Mrs,
Jobson walked over to lhe sitting room
table nnd rang fl brand new gong which
■ho bad purchased tliat day, while Mr.
Johsou looked on wonderhigly. The servant girl wheezed up llie stairs half a
moment Inter.
"Gertrude-, you may serve dinner," snid
lira. Jobson, sinking bnck In an ensy
chair. Mr. Jobson blew his nose rather
fiercely, bnt didn't sny anything.
Ile wii-n't particularly chipper during
the menl, which Mrs. Jobson sat through
without once getting up, ns usual, to see
nbout the coffee or the dessert or aome-
thlng or other, and she went right up
Stain with Mr. Jobson when the dinner
wan finished.
' "My slippers?" said Mr. Jobson, looking nt Mrs. Jobson cspectnntly when
they reached the sitting room. Mrs. Jo'j-
■on smiled nminbly and sounded thc
gong. The servant mado her appearance
presently. "Gertrude, Mr. Jobsou's Biip-
perB—you'll tind them beneath tlio bed in
our aloeping room," said she. Mr. Jobson
wna nbout to say something when the
girl bad gone up ntnirs, but he scratched
his head instead.
"Er—Where's thnt long stemmed brier
pipe of mine?" inquired Mr. Jobson nfter
he hnd settled himself for rending. Mrs.
Jobson, looking up from tho mngnzine
sbe hnd picked up, remind over and rang
tho gong ngnin.
When tho servant appeared ngnin,
grinning—for the girl wns in the play—
"Gertrude, you'll find Mr. Jobsou's long
stemmed pipe on the window sill up
stairs," nub! she.
Mr. Jobson looked st Mrs. Jobson with
open mouth, but sppnreutly thought better of It and scrnlched his hend ngnin.
Mrs. Jobson pulled her enny chnir closer
to thc grate fire and leaned bnck luxuriously. About bnlf nn hour Inter Mr.
Jobson said, throwing down his paper:
"Let's bave ■ look nt that account
book of mine. I wnnt to run up thc fig-
ares."
Mrs. Joliot was just about to reach
over to ring the gong again, when Mr.
Jobson stopped ber with a gesture.
"Just suppose you cut out this Empress Eugenie, queen of Sheba business,"
uld be, "I don't know what this new
game it called, but I know that I don'l

Few people know that more thnn hulf

United Slates are made on Long Island. Near the railroad station at
Cold Spriug is a little ted buildiug surrounded hy frames, in which skins are
stretched for drying, while near by is
nu artificial poud. with wooden sides
and bottom, filled with n chemical mii-
ture. It is an unpretentious establishment, but in our two wars and iu tbe
peace between It has fathered a great
deal of DOlse. The business was established iu IStiO, and success was almost
immediate. Competition was stroug

but the business lias advanced In Importance until now there are but three
factories lu this country whose opposition can he felt. Two of these ure lu

then the thickness of parchment. The
skins are thoroughly bleached in the
drying process nnd are then ready for
cutting inio bends. During tlie Spanish-American war the factory was fairly swamped with orders for drum
heads, BOO dozen heads often being ordered at oue time. Th-a, principal demand wns for the "tenor" drum, on
which a loud accompaniment to the
