Our Local Member's Opinion Un the
Coul Company.
He  Would   Give   thc   Public   a
Show in Profits of Merchandising.
V,. C. Smith, M. P. P., was in town
Tuesday slinking hands with his friends.
He en-pressed ilu* opinion lhat tbe peo
pie ol llritish Columbia would find it
necessary to do some legislation to give
the public a chance against the Crows
Nest Pass Coal company. Mr. Smith
wan emphatic in his denunciation of the
methods employed by the coul company
in taking large tracts of land aud building towns for their exclusive use, barring
all public enterprise and commercial
Why should not these camps be
opened to the public? The company has
untold wealth in the coal deposits, and
the public should be allowed to enter
the townB antl profit by the development
of nature's resources. We don't want
the Pennsylvania system in British Columbia, nor do we want any company using autocratic power against the public.
The coal company should be willing to
deal with fairness with the people, and
not try to hnld everything in sight lo increase dividends. They sell the fuel
the light, the water, the supplies and
furnish the houses now for the people,
and from all of these sources they, of
course, make their profit. In Ferr.ie
they have purchnsed all of tbe government lots, they own lhe land at Michel
and Morrissey, and no person is allowed
to enler the latter towns without permission, else they will be regatded in
lhe light of trespassers. They are carrying lhe thing too far. I helped the
company io secure certain railway legislation, bocnuae I il*,o-.-.-*m it wai right
and just. 1 will support any legislation
at the next session that will tend to restrict their powers and give to the people rights that tbe public is entitled to.
I am opposed to fostering a monopoly of
this kind that has only one object in
view, and that is tbe payment of increasing dividends to people in eastern Canada and Jim Hill and hla United States
associates. The people of British Columbia have hail too much of that kind of a
Will he Crowned Some Time During the
Month «i August.
London, July }.•—King Edward passed
a favorable day nnd tbe verbal report
given out tonight was lhat his majesty is
still doing well. The use, by the prince
ot Wales, of,the word '"recovery," when
he referred to the king's progress nt the
inauguration ot the Raphael Nurses'
home at Guy's hospital this evening, is
regarded in uinny quarters ns in,healing
that the royal family considers thc
king's case most hopeful.
King Bdward will be crowned between
\ugust i uh nnd August 15th.
Montreal, July 7.—The Star's London
cable says: No Intimation has yet reached the Canadian ministers regarding the
late of lhe coronation. It is expected
before the (close of August or early in
September, iii which case Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, Mon. W. S   Fielding   and other
Cauadlaii ministers will remain here, it
is hoped also that 11 fresh   contingent of
Canadian troops may come over. Sir
Frederick Borden is spending a few days
in the country. It is intended to decorate the Canadian arch for Lord Kitcb-
nsr'l return with a new ling design.
A Musical Prodigy.
M. Mclnnes has n liltle boy named
Charley who has nn affliction with bis
eyes that 1 enders bun blind. He was
iu the east attending school uml while
there developed a great tnlenl for music
and since bin return has delighted his
parents and llieir friends by his masterful wurk on the piano. The little chap
has a wonderful ear for music and delights iu playing. Practicing is no hardship for him and nothing pleases him
better than an hour at the piano, and
his rapid progress indicates that he will
he a musician ol note, notwithstanding
his affliction.
A Pocket Smelter.
Leroy Sage has a uew invention called
the pocket smelter mid he is agent for
South Kast Kootenay. It iB au (novation since it will enable a prospector to
gain a very good Idea ofthe contents of
a piece of rock in a few moments anywhere he may be ou the trail. It is a
simple thing and yet thoroughly practical and is worth trying by any prospector, since the cost is very small. Mr,
Sage has a number on hand and Is giving them n lest for thc benelit of any
interested parties who call.

When A. Leitcb was in Winnipeg Inst
month he had an opportunity of siting
up the grent Immigration that has slatted from the States to Cnnoda, Mr.
Leilch lays that the people or this country have no conception of the magnitude
of the movement unless they have been
placed in a position where they could
see .something of it personally. While
there he met men Irom the different
states who were surprised to find land in
Canada selling from fi to $io an acre
that would raise more grain than land iu
tbe western states that was held at $40
to $$u an acre. As a result syndicates
were funned and vast sums hav. already
beeu iuvestetl in the unoccupied lands
of Manitoba, Asstuiboia and the Territories. One Chicago syndicate had
bought direct from the government au
immense tract of land for $1 per acre,
taking every other section, and entering
into an agreement to colonize the reserved sections in a stipulated time.
The managers of the syndicate arrived in
Winnipeg while Mr. Leitcb was there,
secured a special train and with a number of iuvited guests from Winnipeg left
for their new domain in royal style.
Mr, Leitcb was invited to join the party,
but the necessity ot reluming home prevented him accepting, but his brother at
Ouk Lake went iu his plice. Mr. Leitcb,
like all others who have given the matter thought, Ib of the opinion that the
tide of prosperity has turned .11 western
Canada, and that the settlement of Ihe
vast areas of unoccupied lands means a
betterment of the conditions in middle
and western Canada.

Enie Small says he now convinced
that Cranbrook does not want baseball.
"When a town can't turn ont enough
people to pay tbe hotel and livery hill of
a visiting team it is time to quit," he
said, commenting on the game Saturday.
'1 know it was a bad day, yet it has
beeu about that way with ball ever since
we started. Craubrook-has always had
a winning team, hut that dou't seem to
make any difference. I don't like to
kick, but that is the situation."

The big St. Louis exposition has been

Terms are quiet all over the country,
but it will not always be thus. We have
had good times in Soulh East Kooteuay
and that is what has spoiled many of us.
We got into the habit of expecting loo
much, and thought It would always be
the same. Most of us came here because it wus dull times where we had
lived, so there \s uo use to kick. Just
wait awhile. Western Canada has the
resources, and for the next ten years
will fur 11 iob more opportunities for the
hustler without money aud the man with
money to invest than any other part of
the civilized globe. Wail until the lead
mines open up again; wait until the
great bodies of copper and gold ore in
South East Kootenay are developed;
wait until thousands of people have
made the prairies east ol us bloom like a
rose; wait until every stick of timber in
the Kootenays will be in demaud at a
good price. Vou will not have to wait
very long, but when it does come this
will be a great country, and lhe rustler,
the business head, the man determined
to win, will be glad he has remained
here. Just remember this and see if Ihe
Old Man Is uot right In bis prediction.
A citizen of Montreal, lately on a visit
to Utiawa, while passing down a hotel
cor rider to his room at a late hour, happened to hear violent groans and sobs
isMiiug from oue of the rooms. Aa the
door was open he entered and recognized
a lellow Montrealer, prominent in political and business circles, and famous for
his religious and alcoholic tendencies.
He was clinging to the side ofthe bed
ami sobbing as though his heart would
break, "What's lhe matter, old man?"
impiiied our friend, touching the sufferer on the shoulder. "I'm bo drunk that
1 can't say my prayers," was the tearful
They Declined Honors.
Montreal, July 3.—It Is stated semiofficially by the friends of Mr. Tarte and
the other lenders ol the Liberal parly,
that Mr, Fielding was not clone in refusing to accept honors from his majesty,
the king. The minister of public works
was himself given the opportunity of becoming Sir Joseph Tarte, K. C. M. G„
but followed the example of Alexander
Mackenzie and Edward Blake and politely declined the honor. Mt. Fielding
was also offered a knighthood but preferred to remain a simple citizen. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier could have been made a
baronet if he liked, or could have entered the house of lords, but he is contented with the honors he already possesses
and did not wanf to offend French Canadian sentiment by accepting any further honors from the imperial government.

The Coke Famine Is Closing Down
the Smelters In West
Fernie, July 6.—There ia no change in
the strike situation here. The Penile
Board of Trade has requested the president of the Associated Hoards of Trade
to call a meeting of the executive in lhe
hope that a method can be devised to
bring inlo operation the provisions of
the conciliation nud arbitration act. It
is not likely that either party in the
present trouble will take the initiative
to bring the act inlo operntion, but diplomatic action on the part of the Associated Boards of Trade might secure the
desired result.
White Men Leaving.
Fernie, July 6.—Although there is
more or less talk on the streets of a settlement of the strike heir, there is nothing to indicate that any progress bus
beeu made in that direction. Many of
the white miners are getting out of lown,
which may be taken, that so fai as they
are concerned, they do not anticipate mi
early settlement. The Slavs are remaining..
It is reported here that the trouble nl
Michel has been settled aud that lhe
miners nre back at work, but as to ibis
the aloriea are contradictory.
The police business of the towu is now
in the hands of W. H, BullockWcbsler
of Nelson, who has a number of regular
provincial constables under him. Constable Barnes, who has been stationed
here for some time, has been given a
month's holiday, and has left lor tbe
coast. Constable Forbes has been
placed lu charge during Mr. Bullock*
Webster's visit to Victoria.
The Coke Famine.
The strike at the Crows Nest Phss coul
mines is causing all kinds of trouble iu
the Boundary country, where tbe smelters are dependent entirely on the Fernie
output. It may be necessary to shut
down the smelters aud that means absolute business stagnation in thut section,
not only in mining, but in all branches
of business that depends upon thut industry. The Phoenix Pioneer, speaking
of the situation, says:
Boundary smelters require uo less than
350 tons of coke per day to make up the
respective charges, or about iK cars each
24 hours. Of this amount Die Granby
smelter alone uses 10 curs for iis four
rurnaces. Since the Fernie explosion
which occurred May 23, comparatively
little coke has been received in the
Boundary. Agents from all the local
smelters have visited Fernie to get at the
exact situation, but with liltle satisfoc*
When the explosion hnppened the
Oranby smelter had about 1500 tons of
coke as a reserve, lhe Greenwood smelter had a 30 day's reserve lor one furnace
and the Sunset smeller also had considerable coke, But these reserves were
soon used up, and a coke famine now
confronts each one of these reduction
works, no one being able to tell just
when it will end. A little coke, perhaps
four or five cars daily, has been received
at the Granby smelter from Ibe Michel
ovens, but this is not sufficient to run
two furnaces at full capacity.
The Smelters Closing.
The smelters at Grand Forks and
Phoenix have been closed on account of
the coke famine and all the others will
have to follow suit this week. Hundreds
of men have beeu laid off at the mines
In the boundary country, and throughout thut section there is a general depression in consequence.
Pointers lor Merchants.
Advertising is n way of gelling business when business does not come to
you. Vou can't see every resident of
Cranbrook and talk to tbelu about your
goods. That is impossthle. But you
cau aay what you want them to know
in The Herald columns, and they will
read it, for there is hardly a man or
woman in Cranbrook who does not read
The Herald. This Is a pointer worth
considering for the man who does not
advertise, and also for the man who does
not change his ad. Say something 'li
rect to the point each week. Vou cannot help but prosper by it. jusl try it a
few weeks and see for yourself-
Frank Merchants Kick.
Frank Sentinel: The merchants of this
town are being bummed to death. Hardly a day passes without some mendicant
with a " broken leg," some hobo with a
hard luck story, or some club looking
for beer money passing around the bat
for some easy money. For legitimate
purposes the business men of Frank have
always subscribed liberally, but they oh*
ject to being looked upon as marks by
everyone wilb bruins enough to draw up
a subscription HbI and gall enough to
take it around.
The St. Eugene.
The directors of the St. Eugene have
Issued a report, a part of which is as follows: "St. Eugene Consolidated Mining company, limited: Our holdings in
this company still stand at 640,000 shares
of ihe par value 01 one dollar each. Owing to the low price of lead, and the fact
thnt none of tbe Canadian smelters
could handle the output, the St. Kugene
concentrator was only operated for about
live mouths in 1901. During that time
about 11,0.10 tons of silver lead conceu-
tr»tes were shipped, mo tly to Antwerp.
The St. l.ugeue Consolidated has paid
two dividends, amouuting to $210,000,
and nt the end of its financial year had a
cash balance ou hand of $ii'5,35l-*.67
The Canadian Gold Fields syndicate,
limited, received $38,400 iu dividends
from lhe Sl- Eugene Consolidated, while
oui holdings lu tbat company only cost
us $145,448 23 It will be thus seen that
the investment was a highly profitable
one, as it yielded us a return on our investment of over 25 per cent for 1901.
Development work has been steadily on
all through the year, and there are now
over 200 0011 tons of ore blocked out in
sight iu tbe mine. A shaft has been
sunk for ii distance of 140 feet (or 60 feet
below the level of Muyie lake), aud
there is no water to bother or interfere
with tbe work. A level is being driven
I25 feet below tbe collar of the shaft and
in a short time the big ore shoots al*
lendy opened up in Ihe tunnels above
will be developed on this new level.
This will practically double tbe amount
of ore in sight. These ore shoots have
already been proved to a depth of 300
feet by diamond drills, so it is merely a
xtiL'stion of doing the work to block out
the ore,"
A Big Contract.
The plant which Porter Bros , railway
contractors, will use in connection with
their contract to quarry 100.000 Ions of
ore from the surface ofthe Granby gold-
copper mines at Phoenix has reached
Phoenix. It comprises steam shovels,
engines and derricks. II the contract is
discharged to the mutual satisfaction of
the contracting parties, the Granby company has agreed to give Porter Bios, a
supplementary contract for the extraction of $5,000,000 tons of ore from the
surface quarries of the Knob Hill mine.
The railway firm, which has had extensive experience iu mining ore in lhe
Michigan iron quarries, will begin operations at Phoenix at once.
The Marvsvllle Smelter.
United States Senator Turner of Spokane, and several of his associates in the
Sullivan company, arrived last night
nnd left for Marysville where tbey will
arrange for the completion of the work
on the Marysville smelter. This will he
good news to the whole district.
Mining Notes.
The Boundary country has extracted
and shipped over 250,000 tons of ore so
far this year.
The Malachite group of five claims iu
the St. Marys valley is being surveyed
for a crown grant.
The tax on ore in the Transvaal ts 5
per cent. Thnt is worse than British
Columbia's 2 per cent.
The Phoenix Pioneer says that In tbe
future a large smelting plant may have
to own its own coke ovens to insure continuous work.
It is staled that the largest nugget or
mass of silver ever found was a piece
weighing 1340 pounds, valued at $10,000.
It was taken from the Smuggler mine,
Aspen, Colorado.
Superintendent Parker of the North
Star was iu town Thursday. Mr. Parker has ubout Bo men employed now and
is getting out an immense amount of
valuable ore.
Fort Steele Prospector: Mr. John
Swansou, of Canby, Minn., arrived in
town Thursday. Mr. Swanson ls interested in the Cunby group of mines which
ure situated ou Wolf creek, and be is
here for the purpose of conferring with
the oilier owners about the development
ofthe property. Messrs.  Henry and
Chisholm, who have a placer claim on
Wild Horse creek, have run a tunnel In
over 100 feet. The object of the tunnel
is tbe finding of what Is supposed to he
an old channel ofthe creek, which they
expect lo strike in about 50 feet,
J. M. lliij.in, of Kaslo, arrived in
town Tuesday evening from the St. Mary's valley where be has been doing bis
annual assessment on his properly. He
struck a new lead this time lower down
on his claims In a basin that was covered with a wash. He made an open cut
ami uncovered a fine vein of galena that
measured 5 feet 3 inches and the walls
are well defined. It was a surprise to
him as be wns not expecting a showing
of galena and this one is large enough
to make him feel good over the find,
Mr. Hal pin has been in this valley every
season for the past four years, and he is
more firmly convinced than ever that as
soon as thnt section Is given transportation it will prove very rich In minerals.

Bridges and Track are Washed .Jt
On the Prairie.
The Main Line Badly Handicapped  By   Loss  of  Bridges
at Calgary.
The continuous rains the pa-=t two
weeks, not only in the mountains but ou
the Jpralrie^has played aad havoc with
the railroad. Fortunately there has
been no Beriousdam igewest ol the Crows
Neit summit, the ro.id being clear fiom
there to Kootenny Landing, but east of
the lummit to Lelhbridge, wherever
there was a chance for a washout, it has
occurred. Tiie passenger trains are
ruouiug from Kootenay Landing to
Cowley, and the road will probablj be
in shape through to Macleod today 01
tomorrow. The long high bridge at
Pincher is badly damaged bytbeover-
flow, and tbe bridges over the St. Marys
and Belly rivers are iu bad condition and
the approaches badly washed out.   The
branch from Macleod to Calgary If put
out of business owiug to bridges being
washed out, and il mil be .1 week or ten
days before the road will be passable
from Mucleod lo Lelhbttdge. At Calgary the iron bridge east of the lown
over the Bow is iu bad shape, and likewise the twin bridges west of towu over
the same river. Arrangements have
beeu made now so that passengers and
mail are being transferred at these two
poiuts, but it will probably be some
lime before freight traffic will be re*
Bxtraordinary efforts are being put
forth by the company, aud the road is
being put in shape as rapidly as possible. But the cessation in traffic, com*
bined with the strike at the Fernie coal
mines, has had a most quieting effect on
business in Crane-rook and the surrounding territory. The sawmills, with all
the orders for lumber they cat*, handle,
now find it impossible to get any cars
out. Taken ad together, tbe conditions
are most unfortunate at this time, but
will be changed for the better in a week
or two.	
(lot the North Star Through.
Wilmer Outcrop: There was a ring of
harmony and melody and it might well
be said enterprise ir, the great voice of
the steamer North Star as It sailed down
from the head of Windermere lake Tuesday evening, calling at Windermere,
Canterbury, Atfaalmer and Wilmer—-her
deep bass whistle echoing over hill aud
dale and re-echoing from peaic to peak
of the Rocky and Selkirk mountains.
"Hurrah, for Captain Armstrong!"
"Captain Armstrong deserves great credit for his enterprise!" and many siini'.ar
expressions were heard on every bide as
people crowded to the wharves* and none
were loo strong. The difficulties ot
bringing the North Star through from
Kootenay river have been referred to
before in these columns. While many
said it could not be done, today it is accomplished and tbe steamer is little tbe
worse for tbe trip. In fact, considering
the route, tbe damage is nothing) as only
a little work is necessary to put ber in
good repair.
When seen on the Steamer amid a
shower of congratulations Captain Armstrong said: ''Wait until we have cleaned up and put her in repair. We will
then show you a fine boat." He proposes running excursions from and 10
(iolden at the reduced rate cf ?j 50 for
the round trip, and desires to discuss his
plans to work up tourist trade with the
people of this district. He should receive hearty support in this.

Do You Take The Herald?
You should if you don't. It gives the news of
the district. It works for the district. It is
owned by the editor and not by any clique or
faction. It is worth $10,00. It costs only $2.00
Perhaps Dunsmuir followed the example set by several celebrated Canadians who refused to accept a tin title. At
least Brills)] Columbia's premier failed
to receive one und Tbe Herald can think
of no other reason.
The Nelson Economist cast a hard

Nelson is a city.
Up to the present time there has uot
been a single complaint over the (act
thai the lusi   legislature   has adjourned.
The Crows Nest Pass Coal company
has displayed iis true colors at last. After securing most .valuable concessions,
they take the bit in their teeth nnd say
to the people, "Whnt arc you going to
do about it?" They have provincial
constables paid by the people to drive
the people oil ol the grounds taken from
the people; they have public money to
build school houses for their camps;
they hire their own preachers and dictate the doctrine to be preached, if at
any time a servant of the Lord presumes
to criticize the coal company; they dictate terms to the men and sneer at arbitration; they start lu with virtual
promises of good will to the merchants
of Fernie-, and then build targe stores in
competition. This is the compauy that
a short time ago was mild ami pleasant
wben favors were wanted, but now that
the power has been secured, say to the
province and to the people, "We are it."
It is about time thut the government
of British Columbia assume some independence or power, or turn the whole
thing over to the Crows Nest Puss Coal
company for the benefit of Jim Hill,
It would seem tbat some favored parties have received a tip as to the time of
opei.ing the oil lands in southeastern
British Columbia. At least it is said
that there are parties now on the bind
who knew lhat the government was to
throw thnt section open to the public.
It hardly seems possible that anyone in
authority would do anything of lhe kind,
and yet complaints arc being made that
would convey such an impression.
Future Looks Brfght.
Mni-ysvlle Tribune
There have been many doubts
In the minds of some people
to thc future of Marysvllle,
These doubts, as those wbo have really
studied the question knew, were unfounded, and to-day the people of British Columbia known that Marysvllle Is
all right. The people of Canada know
that Mitrysviiii' Is all right and the
people of the United Sates kuow that
Marysvllle Is all right. How can It be
otherwise. A town with a smelter, a
reilneiy and the prospect of lead manufactures and a town that has the mines
to supply the raw material In Us lm*
mediate, vicinity and a town that has
the unbounded prospects that the St,
Mary's Valley shows, can he nothing
but all right.
The prosperity of any town or any
community depends a great ileal on tne
people who go to make up the population of the town, therefore we would
urge upon the business men, the merchants anil In fact upon all who have the
Interests of our town at heart, to do all
In their power to make the prospects of
Marysvllle known to the outside world.
This can be accomplished by talking
about Marysvllle on the outside, by telling their friends tn the east and elsewhere, wheu writing, of Marvelous
Marysvllle antl Its resources, and don't
forget when talking about the town ts
speak also nbout the district.
The great thing Is for all hands to
pull to-geiher for the general wrllfara

doubt hut that Marysvllle will long retain the name ,.„■ has won for  herself.
.Marysvllle made her start In lhe late
faB and owing to the season of ibe
year, one would have been led to suppose that growth would be almost Impossible. Such was not the case, however. M irysville In spite of allobstacles
bas steadily grown. lu a very few
weelis she will undoubtedly be one of
the leading towns of the district.
The fact ol a smelter, a refinery and
lead works of various kinds being erected In Marysville Is proof positive that
we are bound to have a good town here
becr.use these various Industries will
of necessity employ a large number of
■en and consequently a good town,
a good pay roll town will be the result.
A gnod pay roll town Is a town to
which capital ts attracted became a
regular monthly pay roll means steady
business tor the merchant and trader
and cnnseipmntly good business for
everybody else concerned'. Marysvllle
will be tuls kind of a town, a regular
tin bucket town, woiklug man's
town am) therefore the best
hind of a town In which
to live. M.rysvllle Is all rigid and
those who are furluualO enough to have
property in this town are to be congra*

will undoubtedly show a large profit to

Mining As An Investment.
A thought on mining as an Investment, You who measure gains lu inet-
cantlle pursuits by the lixed ratio ol
the buying antl selling pi ice j you win-
have the simple scale of Interest o i
money loaned: yon who buy laud, build
houses, and become renting landlords.
or you who would lake the foiins where
chance enters more largely, as Indus
trial, railroad or other stock, or buying
and selling tbe cereals—all are asked
io view in unprejudiced light—mining
There can be no more legitimate In
vestmeat than mining. We mean here
•lining, real, Intelligent mining, such
as makes producers ami operates their.
A miner's gain Is no one's loss. He
takes nothing from the pockei of his
brother, bin from Cod Almighty's hand,
Compettifou, bruising, grinding, murder
Ing competiilon Is unknown to the coltl

evils to all Investments, except a gold
Mining has been given a pall of pre-
jndlce by reason of fraud, Men, pretending to own a property, have seem -
ed money to waste wheie there were
plainly no values to be secured. Others
having a good property, have squandered money In extravagant aud
criminal managenent. Too many with
knowledge of the vocation, have
poured money Into the ground to reach
a ledge, which any Intelligent mining
man would discountenance, Investors
are sometimes to blame In oilier
respects, Tbey put a dollar Into a mine
espectlng the following day in in

expecting the following day 1') In

required to develop and open a mine,
and often leave the Held disgusted he-

These are causes for Intense prejudice, Prejudice ls foolish. View ia Its
true light everything, else you may
lose a golden opportunity. View mining so. Be assured of honest managenent, be assured of competency, be Informed on time necessary for operations. Gold is In millions of ledges;
there are safe guides to it, Equip

Financial Situation In H. C.
John C Brown, of New Westminster,
contributes to the Canadian Magazine
for June, an Interesting article bearirg
on the financial relations between British Columbia and the Dominion
"Roughly summarized," says Mr.
Bro-vn, "the case of British Columbia
Is, that Its proper proportionate contribution to the revenue of the Dominion would have been, for the period
since the province entered the Confederation (1871)t two per cent, of the total
of that revenue, whereas its actual con
t Ibutlon bas been ft per cent,, and that
Dominion expenditure on account of the
province has not been at all in the same
proportion. To put It In an other way?
Looking to tbe whole of Cau&da, the
central authority bas returned to the
people In expenditures (the debt of the
Dominion having largely Increased
since lto,\) much more than it has taken
from tbe people In taxation; but, confining the view to British Columbia, the
■everse has been true; there lias been
true; there has been taken from ihe
people of that province in taxation, by
the central authority, some 918.000)000
or 11*1.000,000 more than has been returned to them In expenditures. Tlie
Pad th- Province has become a "milch

told Huns thnt us lung ns he coullued

offer no strenuous objection, but that
If he got real careless niul shut the
head off some ono elao lie must look out
for trouble. As ft mutter of t'net, lie
did out* day come pretty close to putting a l.nlU't through the heart of Sergeant Peter Nelson, who forthwith
thrashed Hans lu au npproved style.
Captain Roberta called linns "gross"
end su id that he must stick tu his
The edict of his chief made Hans
feel bnd. Ho blew the whole scale
of calls from reveille through fatigue,
recall nnd drill to taps, but bis soul
wasn't lu bis music. Down deep in
Hans' soul there came the thought that
somehow he wus not like other meu.
The smnrlness of appearance which
characterized Scrgenut Nelson, Corporal Brady and a score of privates be
knew could never be his.    There was
lacking In bis makeup that something
which gives dash to a .soldier, llano
used to fall over his feet in u most un-
military wny, and his bunds were never In the proper plachs. There was
one thing, however, that could be snld
for him, be always tried to obey orders
implicitly. Ho generally blundered
while making thu attempt, but the Intent wns right, and that covers n multitude of sins much more serious in
nature tbnn mere blunders.
The Third cavalry was in the Wyoming country in tbo Elkborn creek region. There bnd been a good ileal of
trouble with the K« Perces, ami L
troop hhd been kept on the jump must
of the time for it month. L troop was
linns' outfit There hud been one constant succession of Bcoutlngs. it bud
been necessary to send small Bquads in
half a dozen different directions at one
nnd the same time. The trumpeter hud
been forced to stay with tho mnln
body, which wus not n very big nut In
body nt that, ut all times, lie hud
been In everything In which the wholo
troop was engaged, bul the idea of
Bonding Hans nut i.n n roconnolssntico
where coolness und the subtlety of the
devil were necessary for safety wns
the last thing that ever entered tin*
head of ibe troop commander.
One day, however, one of tho coldest
days of the Becond winter month, it
been mo necessary to semi n scouting
party to Investigate the rumor nr the
approach of n band of savages, xw, it
happened  that  the   wholo  c mitml
was Tugged out, nnd this lu u nutshell
In tho reason why Hans Mueller found
himself for lho first lime in bis life In
u position of acute responsibility Un
was ordered by Cnptnln Roberts Io
proceed with Sergeant Nelson nud two
privates northwest until something
wna "felt" or until lha sergeant was
satisfied Hint it wrong report had been
turned Ind. lhe ciiinp.
When the little body set out, lho fn-
tlgue of the Individual mombera of tho
troop showed thnt u was uot, sn to
speak, strong enough to ktwp these
mime Individuals frmn giving nana it
Beiidt.ff. Huns hud u citrbluo und a revolver. Ilia Iruiupot wns bunging up
mi ti peg. one of the bystnudoi'B Bald
to the Hcigciinl lu Command; "I.n .1, nut

Herimimige. Thu first thing yoil know
he'll forgo! himself, ami bell irj td
blow 'retreat' Oil his cuiblne.   Yot| tuny
lose ouu mnn if nans puts bis mouth to
the wrong end nf Mn* bun-i'l."
Then they snld a few other llllngs to
Hans. He wns told tu be sine nol lo
get bla conl i lulled up witli his cartridge bell 'Uld tn iiuihe sure (hill ho
tunic liute of lhe liiiuliii.iiU oil the wny
out so be could Ket back to camp lu a
hurry If be lni|i|.ined to hear nn I llllilill
eliout off Ids gnu. Ilnns took nil this
well OnOllgll,   because the thought of
actually going old on n scoul wns sufficient tu knock all otlior things out of
his head, resentment along with them.
They hud loft the camp fur behind
them. .Sergeant Nelson, who wns all
old and t -led campaigner, turned to his
men uud sutdj "Wo arc gelling nenr
the plnce where we may expect to see
Something," Thou he spoko seriously
to Huns. "Mueller," ho said, "you're
not half as bad porbapB as the tropp
makes out, but I l"ll you honestly that
I'm klml 'jf afraid or yoil when It
comes (o a pinch. Do the best you can
nml donlt run. As u mutter of fnct, I
think thai Jim Crosby was pipe dreaming wl n ne brought the rumor of reds
In thla vicinity into camp, but ynu may
have a chance to Bee trouble nnd If you
uo please stli-k."
That wus a pretty touch thing to
havo to any to a soldier with Uncle
Rum's uniform on his buck. Sllckl
Mueller's face went nlmost while uu-
f'-i realization that the true significance of that admonition was that the
. Tgwiut had n pretty strong fear ia
, i heart that this trumpet tooter wns
u coward. Hllckl Ho would show them

and tried campaigner, indeed, but that
ilny ue imiili* a mistake, He led Ids
three men straight Into uu ambush.
There were a Bcoro of pulnted Nez
I'erees straight across their truck. The
Indians bud very little cover, but they
used It ho artfully that the old soldier
Htvgoniit bud actually thought thut the
hit of oinbnnkinont and the Tew sent-
1,'ivil   bowlders  did   not   offer cover
enough to conceal n Jack rabbit
The tlrst liillmitlloii of the I nil tans'

sun went in tin- ground with a wound

through Um shoulder und log, fell wllh

shelter. -\t thu Bnvage volley Ilium
Mueller's heart went to his turottt
Wiih ibe other private, who, like
Hans, wus uiiliit, he fell buck abuut
forty yards uml went bob hid an adequate cover. There for five minutes
tbey exchanged shuts with the reds,
who, lu accordance with Indian custom, would m.i charge across the open,
bin depeitded rather upon being able to
pick off llie sold I era and then to go forward without (lunger and tnke the
scalps. Hans Mueller found that be
could use his carbine. His heart Went
down out of his throat. He looked
around him and saw that there was
some cbuiiee of holding tbe savages off
fur hours. Out beyond he snw his two
stricken comrades. They were not
dead. He knew that because he saw
tbem move and occasionally weakly
raise themselves and send a shot In the
direction of the red foe.
Hans said to himself, "Those men
must bo brought buck here." Then he
handed his carbine tu his comrade and
with it bis belt and ammunition. "You
mny need these," he sold, "If those fellows bit inc." Then he jumped over
the rock In front of hlin, nnd with his
long, shambling, ungainly stride he
made for the side of Sergeant Nelson.
The Indians pumped nt him. The balls
whizzed by his head, cut his clothes In
three places and spnt spitefully Into
the dust at his feet. Telling Nelson to
grab bis carbine, Mueller raised the
scrgenut in his arms nud madu bnek
for cover, his track all the wny marked
out for him by the shots of tho savages. He dropped the sergeant under
the shadow of the rock und then stood
on his feet. |
"Where you going, Mueller?" said
Sergeant Nelson feebly.
"I'm going after Dodds," Bold Mueller, and he cleared the little rock to the
front once more.
"God bless ynu. Mueller," wna what
he heard above the cracking of tho rifles to his front. He reached the side
of lhe wounded Podds, raised him nnd
starlet! back with him across the strip
of hell. Twice he staggered us volleys
rang nut, but he reached the side of his
comrades ami placed Dodds between
Nelson and the unwounded trooper.       ■
Then Dans Mueller fell dead.
Relief enmo to the three surviving
cavalrymen. The two wounded lived.

ii.-io-. An Association,
At a recent mooting ol the Woman's Ait Association in Toronto
Mrs Dlgnnin g..ve a lecture on "How
to Learn to T...|| What Ls Good in a
Picture." Mrs, Dlgnom said that
there wns u time when none but the
artist was supposed to be able to
understand pictures. Tho processes of
creating were enveloped In mystery.
This age, Intelligent nnd analytical,
hus clamored for understanding,
with Lho result thnt few aro the secrets not wrested from tho once hallowed mysterious pals of the artists' workshop. Criticism ia on
the lips of everyone without hesitancy, Marvelous skill bus been
developed nmong our own townsmen
In trivial criticism, the chief aim
being not to find the good but to
detect Lrivial faults. Missing all
truth and purpose, taking uo account of the excellences, in impetuous haste to find fault, it being a
mistaken idea that fault-finding is
the function of the art critic.
Studying pictures ib like studying
human beings, if we start out on
a voyage to discover good we shall
be rewarded by an ever lue reus ing
capacity to discover good. An in-
creoslng capacity to discern bad is
much too rapidly induced. The in- '
nocent, good-natured exuberance of
the careless observer who exclaims: !
"Isn't tbut jusi swell?" "That's
lovely," "Just smell that rose," '*!
love kittens," is much less hurtful
than tho carping, fault-finding critic,
and preferable to tho stolid IndtfToi*- I
once of the person wlio Is afraid of
showing Ignorance if he let any emotion escape. |
Pictures show the limitations of
the artist and cannot contain or j
suggest a greater thought than be
can conceive. A serious student of
pictures knows human nature, and
will readily recognize the strenuous
H.-.H unoamprottifoitig lire uf a rrail-
cois Millet, tlie frugal life nnd poetic
musings of a Corot, the full, luxuriant life of n Rousseau nud u Diuz,
with their dream duys of sparkling
sunshine nml humorous shadows; the
quiet, pastoral life of Mouve, or the
poetical abstraction of Chauvannos,
Three Classes of people study pictures—llie pedagogue, who aims nt
being uu honorary referee; the accumulative, gathering fads t nd Incidents to retail them in conversation; tuiit the honest picture-lover.
Hunt says it takes as much love to
criticize a picture as to paint it. "I
hope our present conditions of criticism do not show an equation."
To be able to tell a good picture
does not come naturally, but is tbo
outcome of knowledge, association,
study, thought, t,» be gained by seeing pictures, studying fundamental
principles of construction, and lust,
hut not least, learning to discover
thr motive ami Individuality of the
artist. An invents nothing; It Just
discovers, and that Is what we are
ou, n. voyage of discovery,
Hammerton says? "The test result of culture is that it emancipates
our minds from the effects of ua-
soclatlon mid enables us to lodge
Independently," or, In other words,
enables us to havo a basis of judgment.
