Ireproving 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.

A Turned Switch Overthrows an
Engine and Freight Car
Into a Ditch.
One of tin.* uiofit dastardly -t-rimi's ever
committed in Cranhrook wnn ihu wreck"
iiik of engine No. 417 hi the lower -switch
in ihi* yuitlfl last Monday night nbout
11:30 o'clock. By n miracle Iln^h
Hrnck, engineer, Ernie Brown, fireman,
nml Geotgc Churchill, lieail hrnkemun,
escaped wilh (licit lives, while lhc engine
and tender weie thrown down an embankment and left n dilapidnted wrerk
that will conl a large .sum of money to
put in shape again
Between 11 and 13 o'clock the train
stnrted for the west. As they pulled
dowu lhe main line (truck opened up the
engine for a ruu for the 1<U1 mid was going from 12 lo 14 miles an hour when
they struck lhe tm tied switch. The
fienilti who had planned the deed did the
work with a cunning intelligence that
marked an ahle hand. The switch was
only partially opened and the light
turned so thai it showed the main liue
clear. Down lhe track the engine
rushed with increasing speed, backed hy
a heavy train of freight cars. When the
switch was reached the flanges ofthe
forward wheels struck the ends of the
rails pulled partially over. There was a
jump aud ajar, ami then it left the rails
which were torn from the ties, and took
a header over lhe grade, careening at
the first drop and finally lauding amid a
lot of mumps with its nose dead against
a bunch of saw logs, and turned over on
one side. When the wheels struck the
end of the rails Fireman Drown was
standing in the gangway, where he had
heen breaking some coal. This threw
him from his feet and wheu the teuder
finally landed he was thrown out and
nearly covered wilh coal that poured
out of the tender, aud was dug out by
the people who ceuie to the rescue.
Kngineer Brock was thrown forward
over the lever, and as that side of lhe
cab was crushed, was pinioned fast in
bis position. There seemed to he no
hope for him. aud the escaping steam
was smothering bim. Struggle as he
would, he could not escape and wilh his
fist be broke the glass in the front window and thus secured some air. When
tbe engine made the final plung and
turned over on its side ag.dosl the
stumps, the floor of the cab was pushed
upward, forcing the side with it and re
teasing the unfortunate engineer He
lost no time in crawling from his dangerous position, and in doing eo left a
poitiou of his overalls hanging to the
window through which he had escaped
Churchill was thrown forward nnd
limped in time to escape without Injury
to himself. The fireman's seal was on
the under side, and that purt of lhe cab
was completely crushed in, and if any
one had been caught there it would left
nothing but an Inert owns of Iminatiiiy,
Krock Is the oul) one injured, mnl his
injuries consist nf had bruises. Hrown
had one leg sprained slightly, ami received a haul rap on the head. How
the meu escaped death is a wunder, nnd
the hundreds who looked upon the
wreck hnve been free iu ihrir expressions
of condemnation of such nn net.
It is a question ns to who nre the responsible parties. Nnlurnlly, tbe «tliking trackmen get the credit for il, but it
la believed by some thai it wuuld he well
to look elsewhere for the guilty patties.
Superintendent Bury had posleis is
sued (he first thing the next morning,
olfeiing a reward of %rooo lor detection
and conviction of tbe men responsible
for the wreck, snd cverv effort is being
made to sift tbe matter to a finish. If It
is the trackmen, an u body or any ot
tbem, they nte resorting (o measures
tbat would lose for them auy sympathy
lhey might receive from the people. If
nol, they should offer every assistance
In lhe work of locating the dastards.
Men who would be guilty of such an net
are unworthy of tbe name of men, and
bunging would be too good for such
creatures. It is to be hoped that they
will be delected and convicted and given
tbe punishment tbey so richly deserve.

what   be   thought
was a conundrum:
'Why is  a newspaper
Success depends upon a liberal
patronage of printing offtces.-John
Jacob Astor.
Qood judgement and common aetse
pies a long wajs In promoting the
spiritual or moral welfare of any community. The average man believes In
law and order. The average man believes ln tbe maini-iiiance of churches.
This has been amply demonstrated in
liiaubrook. No western town uas been
more free from disorder and no town
has been more liberal in support of lis
churciies. The reason for this Is plain.
Tbe business men are a law abiding
class of men. The hotel -business of
Cranbrook Is In tbe bands of good citizens. Atl people, regardless cf relig-
OQS belief or views, bave contributed to
the nupport cl ihe oburcbes, And many
if ihe men wbo have done as much as
any one In the way of contributions to
build the churches, are perhaps men
wbo da not attend tlum regularly. In
this respect, as In many othm, the
people of Cranbrook have worked together for tbe best Interest of the town,
and It wc ulil be a pity Indeed If this conditiou could  not prevail In the future
Every man of sense believes in lent*
perance, whether It be In drli-klng, eating, smoking or any olher form of dlssi-
pitlon. Yet, the history ofthe world
bas shown that some or the most Intemperate people are those who would
adopt radical measures to enforce their
Ideas of temperance. If Cranbrook was
c red with dens of Iniquity, where no
man was safe, then It might be time o
inaugurate a crusade. But this town
has been happily free from such conditions during tbe past two years. There
bas been no reason to complain of ex'

In the height of the rush a woman

She seemed n bit confused.

"And you will not discourage me?"
"Nover! Do not feir to toll us all.

Co-ldlluc Children.
Why ia it, asks Medical Talk, that
poople that aro most exposed to cold
by outdoor employment nre the peoplo who are least subject to colds?
Simply because, it answers, no one
catches cold by exposing tlio whole
body to cold. Thoso people ' catch
cold wbo try to coddle themselves
away from cold. A person catches
cold when a portion of tho body is
exposed to cold, whilo the other portion is kept warm by artificial heut.
One is mure apt to catch cold sitting by a stove in an unventilated
room than by facing a blizzard In
the open air,
Nansen and his men, when in the
Arctic regions, were exposed to cold
•f every description, and it is staled
that they nevor onco suffered from
colds. But no sooner had they returned to their native land than
they one and all caught severe colds.
The reason for this is probably because they were again warmly
housed and spent a portion of their
timo in unventilnted rooms, sleeping in stuffy bedrooms.
The more children are coddled to
keep them from catching cold the
more apt they aro to catch cold,
Tho proper course to take is to
clothe tho children warmly, provide
mod, Btout shoes, and turn theni
loose in the open air. Let them go,
rain or shine, cold or warm; let
them have the open air every day.
Such children aro fur less liable to
catch cold. And their bedroom window should be open every night,
winter and summer, in such a way as
to avoid a direct draught upon them
whilo they arc sleeping.
The Captive Thruah.
A| Edinburgh paper says tbat one
day a Loehnber lud caught a thrush
and took it home. No cage was to
bo had, so the bird was placed in a
basket With a lid. The boy's mother
having told tbe Rev. Pr. Stowart of
tho capture, the minister—a naturalist well-known throughout tho Western Highlands of Scotland—came to
seo the bird. Whilst tbey wero all
talking about tho prisoner the lad
spied a similar bird on an elder-
bush, and Dr. Stewart at once noted
that It was tha enptivo's mate. He
perMiaded the boy to pul,the basket
outside. This wns done, and by-nnd-
by the mole bird llew down and began caressing tho prisoner in mnny
pretty Ways, Then he attacked tho
basket lid furiously, hoping to peck
A hole in it big enough for his consort to escape by. This so touched
the boy's mother, nnd even the hoy,
thnt the latter agreed to let lhe cap-
live go, Taking the basket back to
the spot where the thrush had been
caught, the lid was opened nnd the
bird llew off with a wild scream of
delight, ita mate joining it in tho
wood—both thrushes, no doubt, happier   far than kings.
