That Is Senator Turner's Opinion of Ihe
Sullivan Property.
And the Prospects for a Smelter
at Marysville are Very
Tlie Herald mnn saw Senator Turner,
uf Spokane, mnl Mr. Mull, of Toledo,
Ohio, upon their return from the Sulli
van miue, where they hml tteen on a
tour of inspection, lust week.
"Well, senator," said The Herald
man, "wlmt do you think of the Sullivan?"
••It's (lie greatest body of ore on the
American continent," replied the neon-
tor. "2 thought the he Roi hnd n hit;
body of ore, but it Is a baby beside the
Sullivan. Of course, it ia low grade
nnd will not concentrate, but even today, wilh the price of lead where it te,
with a smelter near at hand it could
lie made to pay handsomely, nud wlmt is
more would go ou paying for 25 years
with the ora in sight."
"What are Ihe chances for a smeller
'at MaryBvllIe?" was the next quesliou
"Good," said the senator, "Ofcourse
a smelter costs a lot of money, and there
seems lo be some doubt as to obtaining
dry ores with which to smelt our wet
ones, but I think aud believe ihere is
copper enough ou the upper St. Matya
to supply half a dozen smellers, hut nt
lhe present time development has beeu
tetarded by lack of railway communication. With the building of the Craw,
ford liny line, however, these copper
properties will be near lhe railway, development will be pushed wilh vigor,
and we shall have ail the copper we
want. "It is hard to say," added Senator Turner, "when the smelter will he
built, but I am certain in my own mind
Ihat a smelter will be built at lhe fulls
near Matysville at no very distant date."
"I suppose you have found both Kootenays rather quiet during this trip?"
asked The Herald man.
Well, yes, quiet, hut at the same
time there is an ail of solidity which is
noticed more and more each time one
cornea into this province. Cranbrook
bas made wonderful strides and your
people seem so contented with your
town's future, that it gives one unbounded confidence in your town and district.
and leads me to believe you have one of
the richest mineral districts In the norlh
west at your doors."

Kverybody knows Colon I,eitch, and
everybody knows that if there is one
thing Colon loves it is a ruyuse.
He was down at tlie big corral in the
linker pasture looking on while Harry
Fairfield and others were trying lo catch
an outlaw cayuse. Tbey bail driven Ihe
horses into the corral antl were walking
them up into the corner hy means of a
loug pole, when one of Ihe hoises swung
around and In an attempt to jump the
pole struck it with great force, knocking
Harry Fairfield over niid stunning bim,
while the end of the pole swung and hit
Colon over the ear, causing concussion
of the brain.    Al   Doyle,   passing  iu  a
buggy, picked him up and liicouipntiy
with William I-amh brought him in mi
unconscious conditiou lo Dr. King'.*-.
oflice. Afler the wound was dressed he
was removed lo tbe bosptlal where it
whs ihought an operation would he necessary 11s the skull appeared to he fractured, but afler lhe swelling had subsided sufficiently it was discovered that the
bruise, although quite « severe one, was
not dangerous. On Tuesday he was 1
moved lo his home, and we are glad to
lie able to report that he is doing nicely,
although it may be tome daya before he
will be around again.
Colon ia a favorite with everybody and
his dangerous condition cast a gloom
over the entire town.

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.

I have anything new, interesting or
startling to give you. Our long, monotonous siege came lo an end this morning
and despite the fact that our prospects
ate Kiugersdorp, DeWet uud Mauser
bullets tight on the jump, I think every
body was about as well pleased lo see
the turf as some of us will he to Hee old
Canada again iu about lour years from
uow, and 1 reckon that's flaying considerable, One's lirst impression of this
country is certainly not ofthe silkiest,
although the hay, with its in.iiiy
and variegated sailing crafts is fair lo
look upon. The general prospeel is
bleached ami bariett looking, with no
vegetation to break tl e monotony.
Looking from Ihe ship it reminds me of
Baker street before Jack Breckenridge
licked il into shape, am] as for farm produce I would venture to say that the
Cranhrook race track call discount this
whole continent. Of course I may be
wrong in my opinion ofthe country, but
thai is the way It "looka froui the road."
Siuce passing Cape Verde islands absolutely nothing has occured, only heat,
heat, heat, and sometimes a little more
bent. There are ijuite a few troop ships
here, from Kngland and Australia, and
we Bcem to tie the heel ofthe hunt. Today we received our lifles, bayonets,
belts, bandoliers, haversacks, water but
ties, canvas sheets and 1501 minds of mn

bad 35 days' steady fighting, and expect
considerable more, so that we peace
makers may get alt we want of peace
making. I guess they have a different
system of making peace in thia country
to that generally followed, at least it
strikes some of us tbat way. Old Jim
Henderson and Sammy Rajotte ure in
the pink of health, and tat as butter, of

M. J. McDonald Meets His Death Ib tie
Yards Early Monday Morilaf.
M J. McDonald, an employe o( Robinson & McKensie's sawmill, wns struck
end kil'ed by an incoming train from
the east at an early hour Monday morning.
Just how the accident happened is
a matter of conjecture, as it was very
lark at the time, and the engincmen
saw nothing of a man on the track, but
the supposition in that McDonald was
silling on the platform when struck by
the engine. His body was not discovered
until the engine had taken the train to
Ihe lower etui of the yards, and bad relumed for the caboose, which was stand-
i ft iu front of the station. One of tlie
brakemen, while just ready to throw the
switch near the station platform, noticed
the mangled remains lying hut a few
feet away, and hurried up town for assistance. Several parties from (he Cosmopolitan returned witb lhe brakeman
lo the scene of (he accident, and upon
finding that McDonald was past all
earthly aid, his remains were gathered
up aud taken to Campbell's undertaking
rooms, from which place Ibe fuueral
occured Monday afternoon.
Tbe deceased was about 4u years of
age, and leaves u wife aud live children
near Sidney, C. B. He had l>een woik-
nig at the saw mill for some time aud
Mr. Robinson spoke ofhim iu tbe highest terms us u workman.
Funeral ol Clyde Baraey.
Mr. and Mrs, Cliff. Barney, accompanied hy Mr, and Mis. G. M. Barney,
relumed last week from their uld home
in Richmond, Vermont, whither tbey
bad taken the body of their son, Clyde,
who was hilled uu the Crow a few weeks
ago, for burial. Iu writing ol tbe fiinci-
il of Clyde Barney, the Richmond
Gazette had the following:
Tbe fuueiiil party reached here Saturday uight on the midnight train and
was met al the station by several of our
townspcoble and the casket conveyed to
thc I'liivrsalisl church, where the fuueral was observed Sunday at 11:30 a.m,
Rev. Alonzo Chase officiating. Six
young men, Arthur Boswlck, Fred Kenyon, Clayton and Merlon J. Salmis,
Leon and liarl Hall, friends of the deceased, acted as bearers, while the sad
rites weie uuder the direction of Undertaker Green, The casket and pulpit
where laden wiih llowets, conspicuous
among which was 11 floral pillow in
white wilh (he word "Clyde" in blue,
lhe offering of several of his Iriends bere.
Music was furnished by a quartet composed of Mrs. T. W. Towers, Mrs. F. 11.
Ftagg, ti. T. Jacobs and F. H. Flagg.
The church was completely tilled, extra
seals having to be brought in. Tbe in*
torment was in Riverview cemetery.
The deceased, until he left for his western home, in Cranhrook, B. C, resided
in this village aud was for a lime employed at the condensing factory. Of a
sunny nature he won many friends and
all will regret his untimely and sad fate
and sympathize with his stricken parents
in this loss of ibcii only child.

Corpus Cbrlsll at the Mlsslea.
Kach year, in lhe motilb of June, tbe
feast of Corpus Chrisii is celebrated at
St. luigcut Mission by the Indians of tbe
Kootenay and Shuswap tribes. Last
Sunday the feast was held as usual, aud
about 500 dusky Redmen. women and
children, from all points iu Kast and
Weal Kootenay, gathered at the Indian
village lo participate.
A number of Ctaubrookers drove over
and spent the day iuthe beautiful valley
enjoying tbe picturesque scene enlivened
and brightened by the many colored
costumes of tbe Indians. At 3 p.m. n
procession was formed and the Indians.
followed by tbe priests, m irehed over
the village, ever now aud then passing
under arches made of evergreens Kvery
few minutes a Bring party of Indians
fired a salute, and at different points on
the line of march, where attars had been
erected, Ibe whole procession kuelt iu
prayer. At tbe close of thc parade tbe
procession returned to the church, where
after singing a hymn, tbey departed.
As several cameras were much in evidence, iu a few duys we shall probably
see pictures ol tbe gathering from many
poinis of view.
Tke Football Uame.
Probably one ol the warmest football
games ever played In Cranhrook was th
one between tbe seniors and juniors at
the athletic grounds last Thursday
livening, for lhe medals which were offered ai pttzes in the sports oa tbe 27th
of May, at which lime lhe same teams
competed without either side scoring.
Not. a little feeling existed between the
members of hoth teams, as the juniors,
elated over their success iu shutting the
seniors out on the 27th, where going to
teach Ihem a few points aboul the game
that tbey were not next to, while ou the
other hand the seniors were equally determined to show the other fellows
where to bead iu. Ahout 150 people
shivered through a very raw evening to
watch tbe game, and needless to say lhe
sympathy of almost the entire crowd
was with the juniors, and wben the
younger chaps made but the faintes ex
cuse for a good play, the way that crowd
yelled and guy ml the senior would have
made a band of Comancbes mm green
with envy. But the gujing only made
thc seniors play heller ball, nnd wheu
time wss up the score stood 4 to 0 In
Iheir favor,

Anecdotes concerning Queen Alexandra, aud illustrating the sympatic charm of her personality, are
numerous. As Princess of Wales
she has officiated at more public
functions aud has mingled more generally with her subjects than might
have been tho case hud her husband
succeeded to the throne early in their
married life; so that ample opportunity hns been hers to display the
Units which have endeared her so
widely, nnd the Knglisli people hav«
grown to fool intimately acquainted
with her.
A story is told concerning a visit
paid by tho Princess to Cambridge,
and of how "an    undergrndualo.    In
Imitation of Raleigh's gallantry to
Queen Elizabeth, spread his gown
on the pathway for the Pr-tncess   to
Walk on. She paused for a moment
ns ir puzzled or start led by this sudden act of superfluous devotion; but
when one of the mi llo had whispered
a word of explanation, it was charming to see how sedulously bhe liflod
her dress to show the dazzled and i'a-
Iher abashed proprietor of thc purple toga of Trinily that alio was actually sotting her foot on the gown,
bowing her acknowledgments to him
at the same time." The observer
who narrated this incident added,
concerning tho way in which ths
Princess won all hearts: "Tho truo
secret lies in the Princess' simplicity
of manner, In tlie openness and oarer
strainedness of her enjoyment. . . .
There is something inexpressibly delightful In this Kpon-tiuieousness."
Illustrative of Alexandra's kindness of heart, in which she so much
resembles the late Queen, it is told
how she entered the hall ot Marlborough House ono day shortly before Christmas, and noticed a young
girl standing there, whoso appearance
betokened delicacy and who looked
wearied. Her Royal Highness bndo
her be seated, and learned lhat -Mio
was thc bearer of some liltlo garments which had been ordered for tho
royal children. Pleased with tho
modest manner of the girl, who did
not know that tho kind and gentle
lady was the Princess, Alexandra led
tho way to her own room, where she
examined tho work and made inquiries, by which she gained the Information that the bearer had executed
most of it herself. The conversation
thus begun gradually revealed that
sho hod an invalid mother, who remained alono at homo during the
long hours when sho was compelled
to work in a shop; and that the
sewing machine rage, then new, had
made her desire to become a skillful
operator, in order lhat she might
earn enough money lo own a machine of her own some day, and thus
bo able to keep her mother company
while at work.
Tho Princess summoned a servant,
and ordered a bottle of wine, biscuits, oranges and other invalid delicacies packed and brought to her,
meanwhile writing down with ker
own hand the young girl's name and
address. Sho presented her with lhe
basket of dainties, telling her to take
them to her mother, and on Christmas morning tho latter was the recipient of a handsome sewing machine, inscribed, "A Christmas gift
from Alexandra."
Perhaps nothing more endeared
Alexandra to the people than her tenderness ns a wife. This was instanced on tho occasion now so freely quoted when, tho Princo departing
for a tour of India, she entrusted one
of her suite witli a portrait of herself, in order that on the Prince's arrival in India ho might be surprised
With the unexpected sight of his
wife's face. During his terrible illness with typhoid fever she was de-

occurred ono Sunday, tbe vicar of St.
Mary Magdalene's, Sandringham. received the following short note from
the Princess, just before the opening
of the service:
"My husband being, thank God,
somewhat better, I am coming la
church. I must leave. I fear, before
tho service is concluded, that I may
watch by his bedside. Can you not
say a few words in prayer during tho
early part of the service, that 1 may
join you In prayer for my husband
before 1 return to him?" When tho
Prince at last recovered, tho faithful
wife erected ia the church a brass
ledum, upon which is the inscription:

Tt will probably be at least a jam
before a new great seal is issued,
says the Westminster Gazette. Formerly it was necessary for the King
on bis accession to issue a proclamation sanctioning the use of tho old
seal till a new one was mude, but
the convenient act of Anne has rendered this unnecessary. GeoJgo HI
did not huve a new seui made until
four years after his accession—on
August 3. 1701. George IV sanc-
tloned a new seal on September 17,
1821; and William IV on August 111,
1881, The Queen's first seal was
issued on July 18, 1888, and lasted
till January 211, 1860. Her second
seal lasted from that date till Aug.
14, 1S78, wheu her third grent seal
was made, Her fourth great seal
Wiis made only a year ago.
It is not surprising tlmt the great
seals have soon become worn out,
for until 1877 the great seal consumed two und Imlf tons ot sealing
Wax a year. Tlnn a statute was
passed enabling a "wafer great seal"
to be used for all except the most
Important documents. It is generally known that On old great seal is
ihe perquisite of tho Lord Chancellor; but it is not so generally known
Hmt by a pleasant act of courtesy in
political life it has become eusiom-
ary for the Lord Chancellor lo give

A nmn 91 years of age, living out

reported as an example of thc harm-
lessncss of the continuous uso of pure
whisky. Ilo hns drunk n pint of
spirils daily for GO years, and is especially halo and hearty, never having hud any illness. Ilis example
hus been quoted freely in several of
tho liquor journals, and by the do-
fenders of moderate drinking. A letter of inquiry to tho physician living
in the vicinity brought out tho following facts: Tho man is of inferior
intelligence, with a large physical
frame, and Inclined to follow very
methodical habits of living. Whilo
the effects of his drinking are not
prominent in his nppearance, they aro
verj* evident in his children. Of three
children by his first wife, two died in
infancy; ono became an epileptic and.
died at 15. Of four children by his
second wife, one is feeble-minded, tho
second is choreic, the third dissolute

"Thero are no people on tho faco of
lho earth who Utter up lhe rooms of
their homos with so much useless,
and consequently bad furnishing as
do tho Americans," writes Edward
Dole in Tho Ladies' Homo Journal
"The curse of the American homo today is useless brlc-a-brao. A room
in which wo feel that we can freely
breathe is so rare that we aro instinctively surprised whon wo see
one. It is the exception, rather
than the rule, that wo find a restful
room. As a matter of fact, to this
common error of overlurntshing of so
muny of our homes, are directly due
many of the nervous breakdowns of
our women. The average American
woman is a perfect slave to the useless rubbish which sho has in her
rooms. This rubbUh, of a costly na-
turo where plenty exists, and of e
cheap and tawdry character In homes
of moderate incomes, is making
housekeeping a ncrvo-racking burden.
A serious phase of ihis furnishing is
that hundreds of women believe theso
Jtmcracks ornament their rooms.
They refuse to believe that useless
ornamentation always disfigures ond
never onialueiils.    Simplicity   is   the
only thing thai ornaments, Ii t. a
