Morrow-Jackson.
Man it--l on Wednesday, Jan. I, at 6:30
a. tn., at the residence of Mr. lieorge
Jackson, Mr. Samuel Morrow anil Miss
Ida Jackson of Cranbrook, Rev. Fortune
oflicintiug.
The happy couple left on the early
train for Nelson, where they will spend
several days at the home of the bride's
parents.
Mr. Morrow is well known In Cranbrook. For several years ne has been
with the Fort Steele Mercantile Company, and is now head salesman for that
company. His friends are legion in this
dislrict, and he Is looked upon as an all
around good chap. Miss Jackson came
to Cranbrook about a year ago, and since
thai lime has been in charge of Ihe dress
making department of Reid & Co's store
aud she quickly made friends and proved
betself « most estimable young lady.
The Herald joins With the many friends
of the ftride nnd groom In extending
lieal wished for a prosperous and happy
life.
Trail, B. C, Dec 38 - W. H Aldrldge
has just returned from an extended
eastern trip and states that tbe Cana-
dlaa Smelling works will proceed at
once with the construction of a refinery
at Trail of aufflclent capacity to handle
the present bullion output of the country. Tbe plant will be, to a certain extent, experimental, but as soon as It
ls shown that sufficient bullion can be
obtained to Insure a commercial success
it will be enlarged and extended, or
possibly, another plant will be built at
Nelson or on the coast. Mr. Aldrldge
says tbat all the metal markets have
been most uusatisfactory to mines,
smelters and refineries. The fall In
lead and silver has cftocted the receipts
of tbe Kootenay silver-lead mines to tbe
extent of fliOO.OOi), annually, comparing
the quotations for these metals In January with those as the present time.
The smelters have also lost heavily,
in buying and selling on a falling market
It requiring on an average of from four
to five months for tbe smelter to realize
upon metals purchased from the time
the ore has been bought '*om tho
mines. Tbe decline In metal prices
since tbe beginning of the year has
been, approximately, as follows: Copper from 17|i cents to 13# cents per
pound; London, lead from £18 to £13,
and silver from 63 cents to M cents per
ounce.
Tbe railways and smelteis are thoroughly alive to the situation, and, while
London lead Is at present prices, will
join and make a reduction for tbe coming year In freight and treatment
charges, on clean lead ores, of 54 no
per ton. The smelters are willing to
reduce t'leir chargi:, prn7-*-* ng thsy
can be relieved from tbe danger of Incurring further losses due to the decline in metals, and as it Is generally
conceded that the present prices of
metals have nearly reached bottom, it
would seem entirely fair to the mines to
make the change at this time. To accomplish this it Is proposed that preliminary settlements Involving the payment of UO per cent, of tbe proceeds
will be made as soon as the results are
obtained at the smelter, ibe final settlement to be made on quotations for
metals 90 days after the preliminary
settlement. It Is proposed to reduce
ihe '.luc limit from in per cent, to a per
cent., wbicb would mean that on clean
lead ores carrying -10 per cent, lead and
over, the total reduction In freight and
treatment charges will be £4 per ton,
while on ores containing over el per
cent. One the net reduction will be S3
per ton.
The above reduction In rates will not
compensate the mines for their losses
In the decline of metals from the first
of the year to tbe present time, but aa
the quotations for London lead during
the latter part of I'JUO and tbe beginning of 1901 were abnormally high, It
Is hoped that the mines will find it In
their Interest to continue operations at
these ilgures. The average price of
London lead for a number of years has
been between £13 and £13 sterling, and
as a reduction of 34 per ton for ore Is
equlvalant to 9U per ton of lead, assuming the ore to contain 40 per cent,
lead, and that the smelter pays for DO
per cent, this reduction of 81 would
correspond to an Increased price for
lead In ore of to Ot, making the present lead quotiilon, on the basla of last
years rates £18 Us. Od.
Mr. Aldrldge says his company Is
spending large amounts of money In
enlargements and Improvements, and
will continue to do so In spite of the
present temporary depression In the
metal markets, believing that tbelr will
shortly be an Improvement In these
prices, and that the production of the
silver-lead propertied! tbe country will
get back to former figures.
gotisiiuiiB it   is  understood thut there
are a number nf others interested with
bun in tbe ileal. This lust deal tins un
importance aside frnili tbe amount of
money involved, as  it furnishes the best
of evidence thai the Montreal men already interested In the Kitchener iron
ledges ure Satisfied »Hb the results they
bave attained during the past summer,
smi as thtty nre credited with having
plenty of money, the district may rest
lHUred that Its   resources   will   lie  fully
exploited during the ensuing summer.
flood Common Sense.
Canterbury Outcrop' The Revel-
stoke Herald strikes a chute of common
sense when ll says It Is time we people
in Kooienay and Vale and t'jrlboo Insisted upon tbe Government recognizing tbe Importance of the mining In
dustry of the Province. The politicians
have their railway policies, tbelr redistribution policies, their Chinese policies and stand us off with a line ot guff
about doing everything to further the
development el the mineral resources
of the Province and we swallow It. Tbe
members for tbe mining districts should
leave these Inkpot political squabbles to
people who have nothing better to do,
and unite in insisting first, last and all
the ttmt on tbe recognition by the
Government of tbe Importance of the
mining industry and on tbe reorganization of tbe mining department on a
practical basis of wide-awake efficiency.
There are a dozen ways in which a real,
live, up to date department could help
advertise our mineral resources,
keep our miners and prospectors posted
and guide tbe energy of the tnlnln,
population at their disposal Into the
most profitable channels. If the Government has not got a man, who can
see how this can be done, then In the
name of goodness let them send elsewhere and get one that can. And the
members for the mining districts should
not let up till this Is accomplished.
A   BIG   FIRM,
C. P. Hill Sells More Iron,
Moutreal, December 27 —It is reported
here that the Canadian Pacific railway
syndicate, which last summer secured
the group of Iron properties near Kitchener, has secured auother group of prospects in the same neighborhood. C, P.
Hill, who negotiated the first deal, la
also said to have brought the second one
to a successful termination. The last deal
includes the purchase outright of four
claims, known as the Creston, Oray, X-
Ray and X-Ray Fractional, the consideration being given as $25 00b cash. The
syndicate has also taken a bond upon
the balance of Mil's mineral claims
and if the bond ia taken up the total
payments will amount to f 75,000, Although IHU haB figuied alont in the ne-
Not Eacouraglni.
M.iiii the \l..yi.' l.i-i.ii.T
Th« present outlook for an early resumption of work at the St. Hugene
mine Is not at all bright. Manager
Cronin baa returned from bis trip to
California. Wnen asked yestetday as to
the probable situation after the first of
the year he said It was anything but
promising.   He said the company had
kept quite a number of men employed
doing devetopement with tbe hope that
conditions would Improve and tbat they
would be able to operate the mine at a
profit after the first of the year. These
hopes are now shattered, as the price
of lead and silver have been steadily
falling, and in his opinion It may be
considerable time before they again
reach tbe figures at which tbey were
during tbe year 1901. As a consequence
after the first of the year the force at
the mine will be materially decreased.
At the annual meeting of the St.
Kugene Consolidated Mining Co., which
was held in Toronto last month, the
acting board of directors was unanimously re-elected. Following Is a list
of them : George Gooderbam, T. G.
Ulackstock, John A. Finch,GeorgrSumner, 10 P Heaton, James Cronin, J. C.
Drewry, W.G (iooderham, A. E Gooderbam, W. H. Beattie. Mr, Cronin was
re-elected manager.
Change of Officials.
As was predicted in The Herald some
time ago, the change has taken place
iu tbe customs office at this place. W
8. Keay, who held the position for a
number of years, and who has bad control of the entire dislrict, has been
transferred to Fernie owing to the
greatly increased business in that part of
the district. A. L. McDcrtuott has been
appointed customs officer to succeed Mr,
Keay in Cranbrook. Tbis change necessitate! Mr. Kesy's removal to Fernie, a
fact that is regretted by his many friends
in Cranbrook, During his residence
here be won golden opinions by his accomodating manner to the public and
prompt attention to his official Juliet.
Mr. McDerniott, his successor, is.well
known throughout the district, aud bis
appointment will meet with tbe hearty
approval of the people of this district.
The Herald wishes both gentlemen a
happy new year in their changed positions, 	
C. P. R. Makes Large Und Sales.
Winnipeg, Dec. VJ.~TheC, P. R land
sales during the past year have been unprecedented in their volume. The employees of tbe land department are now
busy with their annual statements. In
an interview today P. T. Griffin, the
land commissioner, when questioned as
to the sales said: "We estimate that the
sales for 1901 will be about 84,ouu acres
for the sum of $2,750,001-1. The Canada
and Northwest Land company's sales
have also been exceptionally large. The
annual statement will show that this
company has sold iu the neighborhood
of 105,000 acres of land tor the sum of
(585,000. Mr. Grlthn said the past year
was a record one in the matter of land
sales, and these sales had been nearly all
to farmers or intending farmers.
The Fori Steele Mercantile Company 0
Credit to tbe Dislrict.
The growth of this district Is well Illustrated by the growth of Us business
firms, and probably this point was never
more emphatically emphasized than by
tbe marvelous advancement of ihe Fort
Steele Mercantile Co., Ltd. Four years
ago this company, composed of Spokane
capitalists, made its entry into South
BiSt Kootenay by purchasing the
American store at Fort Steele and placing John Pink in charge. Soon afterward it opened a branch at Wardner. and
J. P, Fink came over from West Kootenay and took charge. Tbe same company owned ihe steamer North Star,
then plying on the Kootenay river, and
during tbe days of construction its business forged ahead by leaps and bounds.
When tbe railway was completed, a
third branch was opened in Cranbrook,
and as the business of the district became settled, tbe business at Fort Steele
and Wardner was merged into the business at Cranbrook under the general
management of J. P. Fiuk. Tbis was
done with the idea that Cranbrook as the
central point of the district, was the
most advantageous place to carry on a
business of great maguitude. Tbe business foresight aud shrewdness of this
firm has been amply exemplified, as tbe
volume of its business has rapidly increased since tbis move was made,
Under the active management J, 1',
Fink the business lias so increased that
new they virtually cover all the country
..0111 Kootenay Landing to Fertile, and
Windermere to the Boundary.
One day Ibis week a representative of
The Herald was shown over their greal
store nud numerous warehouses filled tu
overflowing with carload ufter carload of
all kinds of goods.
beneath the great store ou baker
street there is a fireproof cellar 70 feel
long and 2.1 feet wide, and it is packed
r»ii 01 groceries, fruits, potatoes and
vegetables, ho full in fact that tt is almost impossible to find one's way
through the maze of narrow alleys with
boxes, bales, cans and barrels packed
roof high on every side. Further up tbe
street is a large warehouse, ami there
the same condition of affairs exist. Then
there is an oil house filled, and iwo other
cellars full uf goods of a perishable
nature that were brought in before frost.
To one not accustomed tu deal iu big
figures, il is suprising to hear Mr. Kink
talk ot carload lota of butter, St. Charles
Cream, spuds, onions, sugar, beans,
meats, Hour, feed, fruits, Jims and jet-
lies, in fact everything, and these goods
were bought when prices were low. Il
is estimated that this company has now
in stock over £50,000 in goods, which
will give an idea ot the great variety it
carries, and also furnishes a reason for
tbe immense trade it commands through
out the district. There is no substituting
with the Fort Steele Mercantile Com
pany. When an order is received it is
promptly filled, simply for tbe reason
that the goods are right on hand, and
what is more, the goods are the best
brand known, while the prices are uo
higher than is often asked for inferior
quality.
Mr. Fink has reason to feel good over
the great trade the firm enjoyed last
year, and the great succeis has been due
to the fair treatment extended to everyone, and honest dealing with every,nian.
Cranbrook is fortunate In having such a
large firm located here. It is a good
thing for the town and district.

THE RECITA1
A Heavy Business.
The postoffice and express company
broke all previous records in Cranbrook
tbis Chrislmas. Never before in the
history ofthe town has there been such
a rush of business during Chrislmas
week, and the receipts show (hat the
people of thia vicinity were generously
remembered by their absent friends.
A Hint to Merchants.
The Herald desires to drop a bint to
merchauts for tbe coming year. .South
Hast Kootenay Is rapidly increasing iu
population, aud the importance of telling the people what you have is increasing, It is impossible to compete successfully in any line of business unless
attention is paid to this feature. And
when you advertise do it right. Advertise with life and activity. Talk to the
point. Tell the people what you want
to sell, and show why they should buy.
Change your ads. Give the same careful attention to this feature ot your bust'
ness that you do other features. It is
no longer any use to argue that advertising does not pay. Practical experience bis demonstrated that it does pay,
mn.) r-y-i itin The question is to hurdle
it properly. The Herald is reatl hy not
less than 1500 to I Soo people each week,
It will pay any man if be is only
selling peanuts, to use its columns to
talk to the people. Try it, and do It
judiciously.
Leltch's Christmas Boots.
A. Li-itch, of the Cranbrook Lumber
Company, received a Chrislmas present
that was a surprise, While hunting In
the territories last fall he had some
trouble with his feet, and George Lea-
son, of Calgary, who was one of the
party, joked him considerably ou his
vanity that prompted him to wear boots
too small for comfort. Christmas
day Mr. I.eitch received a pair targe
enough to take in the end of a saw log,
and accompanying tbe gift was a long
letter from Mr. LeHson, commisserating
with him on his sufferings from his feet
and advising him to throw vanity to the
winds and seek comfort in his declining
years by wearing the boots sent,
Mr. I,eitch is having a shed built for
Ihe new boots as their extraordinary
size makes it impossible to get them
through any door in his bouse.

a man who would nnt have hesitated
to bluff the combined powers or tbe
world if there bad been (,11)0 In sight

thoroughly understood statecraft ami

"Pay no' a thousand dollars and yotl

to Captain  RobOO.
Then the cnptnln of the Juno Boboe

"Yes, I've beard nf some country or
other called the United States, but It's
a one horse affair nnd no go here. I'd
agree for a small sum of ready money
to wipe your country off the face of the
map and not bo over two weeks doing
It cither."
Just opposite the brig's nncborngo
waa an old dirt fort mounting four
guna and garrisoned by a dozen soldiers, Tbe guns were old nud honeycombed, end had one been ehnrgvd with
i pound of powder it would have blown
Itself oui of the fort; but (bis fact wus
unknown io ns us strangers. Captain
Rebec cairn* aboard with a long face,
nnd in reply to his wife's query he ex-
pini 1 what bad taken place nshore.
'I'll.- mailer was talked over for an
hour, ami il wus finally decided that
the captain should go ashore again nnd

liiilf his price and was forcing the main
qiiestlou. When Aunt Jane had got
the n. w situation straight In her mind,
she promenaded up and down with her
lips puckered up. Tbe crew knew thut
u row was coming uud studd by tor
splinter*, At the cud uf about teu
minutes she walked up tu the mute

Bald:
"Look here, Samuel Davis Smithers,
are you a man ur u scarecrow';"
"I'll stand by yuu in any plan you've
gut." replied the mate.
"And about the rest of 'em'?"
"They'll fuller me to a man."
The . lew wns culled Hit. ami Aunt
Jane detailed her plan.    As u result
they lifted the anchor and sailed uut of
the harbor ebout an hour before sundown.   Then- was a greut to du In and
ttbotlt tl Id fort, and every  minute
they expected tu lie tired Oil, hut tu
tbelr meat relief they got awuy without u shot being pitched aboard. The
brig ran down the coast 14 miles and

the dyewouds craft, and ul) that night
every man or the crow wus kept luird

eight logs to represent iiiumm. These
were stripped of tbelr bark, painted
Muck uml rudely mounted, and, though
the Bailors wire I glers at the buil*
ness, they gave the .lane lichee it uuin-
of-wor look to mnke yuu thrill. Viewed from u distance uf half a mile, the
Quaker gnus looked ready to spout
flame und smoke uml round shot us big
as beer kegs, uml Aunt June rubbed
her hands and smiled uud said:
"if we don't bring that Don Castro
down uu Ids quaking knees, then I'll
never buy another blue calico dress In
the tuwn of Boston, Now for the rest
of It."
one uf the crew had n drum and un-
other a tile and a third a concert lull,
and they were told off fur the hand.
l'roui tho Blop chest and fo'custle they
gut out enough gurui-MitB tu rig up a
dozen dummies and make them fast tu
tlie bulwarks here aud there, and they
set sail on tbelr return to the port.
Straight up the harbor sailed the June
lichee an hour after sunrise, but she
wus barely broadside tu the tuwn and
her anchor down before a bout pulled
off from ihe mole with a dag of truce
Hying. In that boat sat Cujituln Bebee,
who had been set at liberty with many
apologies, and if there had been GO

"June,"   said   Captain   Bebee nn th*
brig cleared the harbor and tho wooden
guns were tumbled overboard, "you are
a mighty smart woman, hut I en n't
just understand it. How lu tlie name
of Goshen did you get tlie Idea? 1
talked uml threatened aud blustered
und bluffed, but"~
"But a woman never bluffs," she interrupted ns she sinned to tbe band tu
knock off "Yankee Doodle" aud for a
band to haul down the (lapping Hags uf

it. even if she hits to wulk over all the
onion beds In the garden. And now 1
guess you'd better wash your face and
comb yuur hair and get ready fur dinner."
A Child's Bath.
A tepid bath for u child should have
u temperature from S3 to 00 degrees F.
uud a hot bulb 1)8 i!-j degrees P., which,
as 1 Bald before, is the normal temperature of tho Inside of the body.
This will cause relaxation In case of
convulsion or sweating lu ease of fever. The water should be gradually
heated until the hand uf the mother
tiiiils It noticeably warm, tare being
liad always tu remember the extreme
delicacy und sensitiveness uf a child's
skin.
In case uf debility and for Bcrofulous
children uud those threatened with
rickets u salt water bath every morning, either hot or cold, according tu
sen*in, Is very valuable. To prepare
this hath use four ounces of sea salt lo
four gallons of water. Let the child
play in the water a little while, then
iiili the body briskly with a Turkish
towel Ull the skin Is In u glow.
To make a good nnistu" I bath use
two ounces of powdered ..mstard tu
four gallons uf water. This Is excel
lent as a footbath ami relieves congestion of tlie head and Is often useful In
the lirst stages of a cold on the chest.
In cases of extreme exbnustion and
threatened collapse a child can he Immersed up tu its neck, uml the bath
will act us a stimulant, but whenever
une Is using a hot bath fur any reason
the bond should always be spuuged
with cold water.—Pilgrim,

itself to the circumstances, und b.ys

tlie upper sky, in pursuit, prosum-

which is rather startling if tlie hint

noted, the night-hawk remains tolerably common in Ontario, while iin:
whip-poor-will grows rarer every

Province where, n few years ago,

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.

ST. EUOBNE HOSPITAL REPORT.
THE RAILWAY SITUATION
Business Was fioei.
It is generally conceded thit business
was better ia Cranbrook this year than
ever before. Tbe merchants hate had a
steady and profitable trade, and tbe
tiade has come from a larger territory
than iu former years. Tbe growth and
permanency of Cranbrook is better assured than ever and this fact is being emphasized each week by the increased
prosperity of the people. Every merchant will tell you tbat bis trade Is steadier, and that the family trade is increasing, showing and increase in population.
The Herald Is of the opinion that tbe
coming year will see a still greater
change in the trade conditions of Cranbrook, and lhat at tht close of the year
the results will prove eminently satisfactory to all.

Dr. Watt in an excellent article In
the Fort Steele Prospector wriled of the
growth or Fort Steele. The venerable
gentleman would have Won many words
of praise for his magnificent effort if he
could have refrained from getting bitter
in some of his allusions. It is too bad
that he permitted himself to spoil an
otherwise good piece of work by giving
vent to his personal spite against cer.
tain individuals and the old gentleman
should remember    that "the   sun do

Some Interesting Bam on ibe Wurk oi tiK.
Past War.
It is to us a most 1 tisible pleasure to
extend to our friend-. ■*■-' numerous and
generous, our warmeM thanks lor their
bounty towards ns ill ring the past year.
Tbey, Irrespective ■ creed or nationality, have Bhowtl 1 - -I"-' gieatest COU*
sideration and kindness, and apparently
were not only willing but eager to assist
us iu our work ol caring fur the sick.
We have again and again been deeply
touched by ihe delicate proofs of the interest taken In us, by those noble-minded, belpeis, the members of the Ladies)
Aid Association, who during the year
worked htiiiil in tttml for the welfare of
our hospital.
Between December .list, 1900- uud the
same date mm three bundled pulieiils
were received ami cared (or These were
residents of the different places along
ibe line between Crow's Nest and Sirdar,
as well as the neighboring iiou**rallroud
towns. Upwards ot fifty ol the numher
were operated on; there were twenty one
cases of fever, the remainder were principally sufferers Irom rhumatlsni, pneumonia, henit disease nud sceptieumiii.
Out of these three hundred patients only
seven died; twoof heart disease, two of
pneumonia, one ol paralysis, oue of
fever, and one of appendicitis,
There are at present twenty*three
patients in hospital. This institution
received a grunt of $1000 ou this year
from the government, which wns barely
sufficient to pay hired help. The Ladies
Aitl Association contributed sinus ot
money at different periods, the whole
amounting lo about $30000, For remainder of expenses it bud tu depend ou
private patients, the dollar a month per
capita con tri Ini tion from miners, and
collections taken up iu most of llie
towns from which patients were received.
The hospital still carrlea the heavy
debt of $8,000,
To our benefactors one and all, we
offer our most cordial thanks, mid pray
that the New Year may come l-> them
laden with every blessing, ami that the
charity exercised toward our institution
may be returned to them iu two-hundred fold measure.

move.
On the other hand the (J. P, K. holds
the key lo the iratllc situation lu West
Kootenay, and by building the Crow's
line, drove In tbe wedge In East Kootenay. 11 Is pretty generally understood
that the U. 1'. It. does not propose to
take the chances in East Kootenay that
It took in West Kooienay, for competition cost it a lot of money. It's Held
al Eernle and Morrissey is being invaded by Hill, and it realises ibal ibe resources of Somb Hist Kooienay will
prove attractive to that shrewd railroad
operator, who la strengthening the
Great Northern by the construction of
feeders thai tap tbe rich countries tributary to that line. Therefor, It la not
strange that the C. P. It. proposes to
protect Itself in a section that it has
been guarding wllh jealous care,and thai
is why the Idea Is generally accepted
that this company wilt begin operations
in the St, Marys Valley just as soon as
the opening of spring will permit. This
is the news that comes from various
sources, the authenticity of which can
hardly be questioned by reasonable
minds.

The New Year
Prompts us to remark that the Furniture business is peculiar. To please the
people one must have goods and prices
that will suit the people. Although we
have been in business in Cranbrook only
a few months our trade has rapidly increased until it has reached pleasing proportions. Our Furniture evidently suits
the people.
Wishing you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year we remain,
Yours Truly,
