Had a Great Experience But None
of Them Care to Try
It Again.
Another hunch of the Stralhcotia
Morse boys returned during the week.
They were W. T. Haines, W. O'Hearn,
Charles Hart, II. Melton, J Nesbit and
j. McDuff, All of them were looking
well, uml lhey all say that they hive enjoyed excellent health since leaving the
battlefields, and are tickled to death to
return to Canada and South Kasl Kootenay. None of them regret having enlisted as it gave them a wonderful experience, but not one of them would
care to repeat the experiment. They
all agree tbat they had a royal good
time while in Loudon. The people of
that city left nothing undone to insure
every member of the company all the
Inn to be found in a city like Loudon,
and as one of the hoys expressed It, "We
drank champagne~'out of beer mugs, and
everything else was done on the same
liberal plan." O'Hearn says he would
not have missed the trip for anything,
bul in the future if any Boers wanted to
fight him, they must come into his backyard.
The boys are all of one voice in their
praise of Col. Steele. They sav he is a
model officer, aud just the kind ofa man
to have charge of a crowd of westerners
who knew or cared little for discipline,
hut who could fight like demons when
the necessity arose. It waa on the point
of discipline that many of the members
of Strathcona Horse shocked the old-
time lvnglish officers, as it waa seldom
that lhey thought to salute when a superior rode by them. When it came to foraging the boys from Canada's western
plains and mountains were in their element, aud many a Boer farmyard was
depleted of poultry after the boys hnd
ridden by. Oue oue occasion, one of
lhe South Kast Kooleiiay hoys was riding into camp with a dozen or more
chickens strung across his saddle. It
was just about dusk, and unfortunately
the trooper met Col. Steele riding at
the outskirts of tbe camp. Tutting on a
brave (rout the culprit saluted, and said:
*'I was presented these fowls at a farm
house, aud was on my way to your headquarters to leaven few." The doughty
colonel frowued a"second, and then re.
plied: "All right, tny man, but uo
tealing, you know," antl then rode rapidly awav to hide tbe smile that he could
not repress.
Tbe ljmpetition Will Close Oo Friday of
Next Week.
Three weeks ago Tbe Herald
nouncetl tbat it would give two prizes of
$3 an<l js1 each for the best essay
Cranbrook and South Kasl Kootenay by
the school children, Tbe announcement
stirred up a (great dent oi interest among
lhe pupils, and as n result tbere nre a
uumher of contestants working «i h
great zeal. Tbe Herald believes i.urh
diversions are a good ihing for tbe pupils
since lhey prove incentives for labor outside of the regular routine work. There
is much lo learn in school outside from
tlmt which is to Iw fouud in tbe text
books. The Herald believes in bioad-
miuded Leaching, which means pnu ticul
and beneficial teach.ng, and it may bave
other suggestions to make iu the future.
There is uo work more Important in a
towu than school work, antl parent*
should make every effort to encourage
their children. The school life of a

Tbe Herald bas ordered another lot o
type, aggregating over $100. A friend of
the Herald remarked the duy Ihe
order was sent in: "Why are you send*
ing for more type, Simpson? You have
now twice as much material as any office
in towns of tbis size in britisli Columbia." That is true, llut the world
moves, and nothing changes move rapidly than style aud custom in typography
To give satisfaction to your patrons, the
joh printer must not ouly keep up with
the procession hut a little abend of it.
Some Bay: "Oh, tbat is not necessary
In a small town." That is a mistake.
South Kust Kootenay and Cranhrook
have Iheir up-to-date business men.
They read and they observe. A job of
printing printed with type ten years out
of date dou't go with tbem. Tbey want
modern printing. The Herald has type
in its office lhat bas not been designed
over six months, and the last order includes new faces that have met with such
a degree of popularity iu the business
circles of Eastern Camilla and the States.
Tbe Herald believes in being up-to date.
And, yet, tbe best of type, the latest designs, in lhe hands of typographical
blacksmiths, produces n most pitiful
effect. Tbe Herald pays tbe highest of
union wages atul has men who bave heen
taught their trade in J-arge cities, where
typographical exct-llence is an art. Men
cannot "pick up" the printing trade
They must be trained by artists to be
artists. The Herald job printing gives
satisfaction, The best of material is used,
Ibe latest iu type faces, aud tbe knowledge of modern typographical combination. Naturally there is a moral to thi
little talk. If you wont job work, want
it right, waut it artistic, want it modern
aud want to keep your money in the
district, bave the work done nt the
Herald office. We are printers of modern priuliug.

Tbe new telephone company that has
been organised in Cranbrook feels very-
much encouraged over tbe patrouage
guaranteed tbem by the citizens, and are
moving as fast as the law will permit, to
arrange for tbe establishment of tbeir
plant. The need of a telephone has beeu
a pressing one for some time, aud it ia
due to the enterprising spirit of a few of
the citisens who were willing to put
their money into it, tbat Cranbrook is to
have thia want supplied. The local
compauy expect to have llieir plant in
operation in a lew weeks.      t

A person wuuld have to travel a good
tunny miles, especially in the piovince
of British Columbia, before he would
find a belter pluee to spent) ,1 summer
than in the neighborhood of Moyie
Situated on the shore of Moy it* lake, the
towu has surrounding it some of the
most picturesque scenery to be found
anywhere. Across ibe lake from the
town ate lo be found ideal camping
grounds, Then, too, tbe lake affords the
best of sport iu tbe way of fisbmg, while
a trip down through the narrows aud up
one of the creeks which ruu iuto the
lower lake wuuld he a pleasant excursion
for an afternoon anil would result in a
plendtd string of mountain trout. Iu
the town are several first class hotels
where the best of accommodations can
be bad, and one or more boat houses
where row boats may be obtained. The
lake has some ideal bathings spots and
good shooting is to be found almost auy-
where iu the neighborhood, both duck
and grouse being plentiful. Lust summer a uumher of campers spent their
holidays near Moyie, and this season
there are sure to he many more. If you
wish gootl boating, bulbing, fishing ami

The smallpox, which necessitated
Moyie flying the yellow flag for the past
few weeks, is now a thing of the past.
Last Friday the quarantine was lifted
ati<l now the people of Moyie are at liberty to wander at their own sweet will
without being called upon tu show a doc
tor's certificate of vaccination. John Allen, the ouly person titillated, is doing as
well as could be expected iu the pest
house above Mini's sawmill. He bas
now nearly recovered and ill a week or
ten days will be at liberty. The word
•mallpox is seldom, if ever heard, and
the ouly thing to show that it lias visited
us is the photograph of Allen which was
taken a few days ago and is to be seen
in several of the store windows. No one
need fear to visit Moyie, aud those coming are sure of n warm welcome.
For the purpose of prospecting in tbe
St. Kugene mine a diamond drill was
shipped here from Spokane last week,
N. II. Wright, one of the shareholders of
tbe company, ia here in charge of the
machine. The drill, which will be
worked double shift, haa a capacity of 12
feet per shift and requires five meu to
operate it.
Oue of tbe advantages which Cranbrook bas over Moyie is the possession
ofa social club. There are a number of
young gentlemen in Moyie and club
rooms where an enjoyable evening could
be spent would be a decided improvement. Rooms could be easily obtained
nicely furnished and provided with the
leading magazines, then we would have
a place in which a very pleasant eveuing
could be passed.
Park, Mitchell & Co.'s sawmill is getting a thorough overhauling so as to he
ready to start work as coon as the lake

The drop in tbe price of lead has not
in any way affected the mines here as

List Saturday work was suspended oh
the Aurora mine where the strike was
made a short time ago, The weakness
of the ice was tbe cause of suspension
and work will be resumed as soon as the

Arrangements for a Qaoe Between Craabrook and Nelson.
Arrangements are now completed by the
Craubrook Football Club for a game of
Rugby football, against Nelson, end unless lhe unexpected happens, the Nelson
players will he in towu next Friday and
the game will he played at the Turf and
Athletic Association's grounds, at 5 p.m.
perclsely, The football club has worked
bard to get a team together and are
much Indebted for support to players
from Moyie aud Fort Steele who have
promised help. Tbe last two seasons
Nelsou loo, had a strong team, am] although il is hard to predict what this
season's team can ilo, they bave mauy of
tbeir old players left ami rumor says
some good new material. Tbe game of
Rugby, to the majority here, is entirely
new, and it is hardly to be hoped therefore that Craubrook can get a suffciently
strong team together lo lower Nelson's
colors, but from progress made iu learning lhe gnme, ami hard training, Cranbrook boys are confident of being able
to put up a hard tight.
The price of admission, 35 cents only.
Tbe expenses ol the game are considerable, aud ibe club's committee hope lhat
the attendance and number of spectators <
will he large. Football uuder tbe Rugby
rules, is a most exciting game, and everyone should make a point of going, If
the game is well patronized it will mean
a great deal lo the club. It wilt show
that their efforts to bring visitors to our
town for friendly contests and to provide
entertainment for the townspeople are
appreciated a ml will encourage future
attempts in this liue.

Intimations to this effect have already-
leaked out but definite information has

capitalist in question is Mr Hyams, who

Smelting and Refining trust. Wben tbe
trust bought out the Guggenheim interests iu South America, Mr. Hyams disagreed with his colleagues aad pulled
out ofthe trust, receiving for bis interest
a sum stated to be six millions cash, ile
is looking for an Investment, and satisfied himself oa a recent tour through the
East Kootenay country that the opening
for a smelter there was very promising
if the railroad competition necessary to
render it a success was forthcoming.
The Crow's Nest Southern will fill tbis
want, and tbe claim is made by tbe interests which are backiDg'.hegranling of
tbe charter that one of tbe first good
effects to be felt as the result ofthe advent of the competitive road will be lhe
establishment of this large and impor.

Wbat Is the matter I
It Is claimed that the present govern*
meat at Victoria Is a "business" administration.   It looks like it.
It Is evident that John Houston aspires
to be tbe Poobab of tbe province, as
well as of Nelson.
The best "blow out" tbe people can
give tbeStratbcona Horse boys Is to assist tbem to permanent employment.
Tbat ia what they need, and surely they
il-starve such recognition from the
people of the country for which they
risked their lives.
Wben will action be taken to give tbe
people of this district some convenience
in court sittings. The sessions should
be held at Moyie. Fernie and Cranbrook,
Instead of at a point twelve miles from
tbe railway.

We offer a most abject apology,
Brother Clark. Hut, we would add that

Tba contemplated Increase In the pall

Before any charter la granted to the
Jim Hill people, the government should
est that tba coal supply of this province
la assured, so far as It Is within the
capacity of the coal company so to do.
It Is al) right to talk about the O P. ll
octopus, but -Mm Hill is no railroad
saint, and If be gets a clocb be works It
to a flulah.
Th* drop In le*t\ Is not going to kill
mining la the Kootenays. If it does not
recover tbe railroads, smelters and refineries will have to b;ar their portion
of tbe loss. The production of lead will
continue but the price Is bound to come
up within a abort time. Combinations

The Two Per Cent Royally.
Revelstoke Herald: Tbe Herald is informed on good authority tbat the effects
ofthe two per cent royalty on ore are
likely to be ofa most disastrous character In the near future. If the government refuses to accede to the demands
ofthe mine owners for a modification of
this tsz, they intend, it is ststed, to cut
wages down to three dollars a day, a su p
which would lead to a strike of miners
all over Kootenay, which would edict
