CHINESE NEW YEARS
The AI mood Eyed Sons of tbe Orient
Celebrate.
List Wednesday waa Chinese New
Years, and the oriental population of
Cranbrook cut everything loose tbat
day and night, In towna of this siz*,
where Ihe Chinese population in limited,
iwo'or three days is about the limit for
the big htghyu time, but Hie heathens
do a big line of business while ihey are
at It. Thia year the Cranbrook contingent imported a full band from Victoria
and kept it busy during- the celebration
period at the big joss house of Sing
Scanyl. Regular work waa suspended
Wednesday, and music, chickens aud
fun tan werethe features of tbe occasion.
Every laundry waa transformed Into a
gambling resort, and the rattle of the
chips and the kiyis of the players could
be heard ell night Wednesday- There
were many white visitors tbat afternoon
and evening, and the band entertained
delegation alter delegation. A boiler
factory Is the peace of heaven compared
with the noise of B.Chinese band, and
no one else but a Chinaman could stand
It thirty minutes without going crazy.
Sam-aooey and cigars that would kill a
wooden Indian were on tap for visitors.
The drink tastes-like vinegar, pepper
aauce, rotten apples and limberger
cheese combined, and will burn a hole
in a man's sock two seconds after swallowing.
The celebration waa a great success,
the -devils were all scared away by the
burning tapers, and many sacrifices
were made to confucius.

Sold It.
Rev. Nicolas Coccolo, O. M. L, who
is to be in charge of the Secret) Heart
parish pending the appointment of a
permanent successor to Father Welch,
Is ont of the most Interesting clerics in
tbe Kootenays. Iu the early days of
the country he waa the owner of the St.
Eugene mineral claim, that afterwards
developetl into a mine said to be the
largeat silver-lead proposition in America. Father Coccolo learned the secret
Of the location ol the claim from a converted Indian,, aud tbt substantial sum
realized by him from the aale of tbe property has been devoted to the St. Eugene mission and industrial school, of
which he is rector and principal.
Father Coccollo was one of ibe pioneer evangelists ef tbe Komnn Catholic
church io the Koottnays, and his work
among the Indians of East Kootenay
was well tjstahllslied before the advent
of the Crow's Neat railroad brought the
resources of the country to tbe attention
of the outside world. One of the Indians converted to the faith under the
missionary's miuhtratlona told Father
Coccolo ot the big ledge outcropping
near what ia now called Moyie lake, and
the claim was staked under tbe reverei-d
gentleman's directions. While in its
prospect stages, aud when ita magnitude
was an unknown quantity, the St, Eugene claim was sold to its present
owners, and several thousand dollars
was, realized for tbe missionary work
inaugurated by Father Coccolo. The
funds thus forthcoming were applied to
the carrying on of Ihe evangelistic work
at the St. Eugene mission, seven miles
from Cranbrook. Tbe Industrial acbool

status of the Indiana of the diatrict has

SAB BLOW TO  UNFORTUNATE   PARENTS
Cranhrook has had a aad and sudden
visitation of death last week, four little
ones being claimed by the dread dia
eases, scarlet fever and dlptheria. The
scarlet fever cases came from Sirathcona
in the Territories, being the children of
Grant Boulange, who had been living
with the sister of Mr Boulange since the
mother's death. One of the children
was dead when brought to Craabrook,
aud tbe other died a few days later. On
Saturday the little daughter of A.Grioier
aud the oldest son of J. Brault, died of
dlptheria. Both of the children had
beeu isolated at the Grluler home and
everything done to save them, but with
ont avail. Another aon of Mr. Brault
is sick, and also a young aon of Mr. Grl-
nier, hut both cases are improving.
Dr. King says that be is of tbe opinion
that there is no further danger aa the
disease of dlptheria is well In hand. The
school tiusteeB very wisely concluded It
best not to take any chances, and closed
tbe school for ibe week, but it will be re*
opened next Monday,
Every measure tbat would contribute
tothe safety uf the community was enforced, and perhaps it is to this fact that
Cranbrook has escaped a deadly epidemic

Charles Belange.aged three years, died
At Sirathcona ol scarlet fever. The remains were brought to Cranbrook and
the funeral held Thursday at the Mission
cemetery.
Frank Belange, aged five years, died
Friday night, January 30, of scarlet fever
and was buried Saturday at the Mission
cemetery beside the mother and brother
Carrie Grlnier, aged five years, eight
mouths, died Saturday, January 31, of
dip'.herla.
Henry Brault, aged ten yeara, died
Saturday night of dlptheria.
The double funerai was held Sunday
afternoon at 4 o'clock from Campbell's
undertaking rooms and the remains interred in tbe Cranbrook cemetery.
AN IMPORTANT IMPROVEMENT
Some Timely Remarks 01 • BrMft That li
Badly Needed.
Marysville, B. C. Ian., 31st, 1903,
Editor Herald:—Il may aeem a little
permature, as It is yet so early in the
season, tu write about the- proposed
bridge over the St. Marys river which
would bring Cranhrook and Marysville
into closer connection. We all know
that a bridge ia badly needed. A good
site, I understand, has been cboaen by
those who are in a position to be a judge
of such things- The tost of roads'let-ding up to and from the bridge would be*,
small, tbe grading to be done is compari*
lively Blight. The benefit to be gtlmeoV
by tbe people on this side of the river
would be inestimable: This winter, for
example, the need of a bridge haa been
felt very much, as there baa been quite
a lot of lumbering done on or near, tbe
St. Marys river, and the idea of having
to go about twenty miles Instead of
twelve, means a lot to any man, no matter what business he follows. With tht
lumber industry all along the riven* Increasing by leaps and bounds, the
Marysville smeller in full blast, and the
Influx of moro miners and prospectois
into the upper St, Marys country, It
would seem to indicate that-a bridge'
somewhere above the present railroad
one Is practically IndUpensible, It
would appear as If a ajilation of some
kind was necessary to draw tlie attention of the powers that he to tbis matter,
There are however rumors afloat of a
provincial election being imminent. If
such Is the case, all I can say is that aa
far aa tbis aide of (he St. Marye river is
concerned, thst Ihe candidate for election that puts most bridge timbers into
the construction of his platform will get
the most votea.

AN INTERESTING LETTER
Mrs. 0. rl   Prest Writes of Her Work la a
Southern Town.
Bffilnghan, III., July 25th. 1903.
Editor Herald:—] ant much pleased
witb the college here. It is devoted
exclusively to teaching photography in
In all iti branches. There are students
htre from all over the world. A young
men arrived from Spain the day* I did-
Not being able lo speak a word of Kng-
liab he brought au interpreter with him,
whoafter making all arrangements left
bim. We also have one student from
Sweden, one from London, Eng., and
two Japs, one from Ontario, two from
British Columbia. Most of the othere
are from different parts of the States.
Altogether there are about etgbtyfivt in
attendance.
The college was established in 1893,
so bed passed the stsge of experiment.
The two buildings are called "Garnet"
and ''Rembrandt" hall, built of Virginia
brown stone, pressed buck and New
York red slate, heated by steam, aud
lighted by electricity, containing about
forty rooms and surrounded by a natural
park of several acres in eatent. Tbe
buildings were originally constructed by
a wealthy gentlemen for bis home and
stables al a cost of over fifty thousand
dollars.
Since coming here I have taken up
tbe unrivaled "Carbon Process", tbe
prints of which are considered the art
gems of photography, and have never
been equalled by any known process
and are the most permanent ol all
pictures. Last year I was [0formed by
a traveler iu our line that these pictures
sold ia Kossland at S40 per dotan cabinet
a lie. I presume the sale of these will
be somewhat limited iu Cranbrook, but
you know for a few ofthe wealthy, sucb
at publishers, etc., tbe best is none too
good.
Next Wednesday I expect to visit,
what is claimed to lie the Boost studio in
tbe world, "Strauss" oi St, Louis. Last
week I received a letter from the proprietor of one of ibe best equipped
atndioa in Toronto offering me tbe free
use of bis studio fur any purpose. I
might want while iu the city. So I
expect my trip will be beneficial to me.
When I return lo Craubrook we will
remodel our studio and bave a uiacbinc
by which we will be able to take
pictures in the evening.
I am not very favorably impressed
with the town of Effingham. Ii is a
stew, sleepy plice. Sucb old fashion
|lga going round at a suaii'a pace. It
Mr. Miner's outfit was turned loose here
tbt people would never recover from
tbeir surprise. Tbe town might be
more appropriately lie uatned Rip Van-
Wlnkletown. They say lt ts typical uf
these southern towns and the further
south yon go tbe worse it is. I won't be
sorry to get back to Cranbrook with Its
gergeoutly SDti-set-tinteil background of
mountains I expect to be home about
tbe 25th of February.
Very Respectfully Yours,

Gaveramat Reserve. '
Morrlssey Miner: There haa been a
gaeat deal of speculation as to how aud
when the government reserve located
south of Morrissey and on the international boundary line would be ibrowa
open. Tbe Miner has taken the paint-
to secure authentic information on this
matter, and there is no question but -
that tht reserve when it is thrown open
will be advertised for thtee mouths In
the Gazette and local papers, so that
every one will have an opportunity to
know the facts. It is possible tbat tbe
government mny bave the reserve surveyed and sell the property lu blocks to
ibe highest bidder.
■ Up to tbe present time a vast amount
Of tbe reserve conl lands have been
staked, but the applications for license
have all been refused Hnd tbe money returned, nor will any application made
at this time be considered by the government. Furthermore, any peison who
|Ukti property there now and  files an
pplication for a license, will have no
better standing with the goverument
than thc person who stakes bis groand
t!be day the reserve is opened, no mailer If be does stake again that day. lu
other words men stakiug there now are
doing so contrary tu law, ami their woik
ri all for naught and given them no advantage whatever.

Ottawa, Jan. 30 —Messrs. Prior and

Political   Points.
Morrissey Miner: It is said now on
pretty good authority that the appointment of Chief of Police Forbes, as government agent 11 Fernie, is a misnoniei
in a sense, Inasmuch that be is simply
appointed as ilu* rt preventative of tin
government iu nutteis peitaiuing ti
records, and not to act in 1 lie capacit)
of Mr. Armstrong, If this la true, thei<
tbere would be no change tlmt woulc
naturally follow if Mr. Forbes wns to
huld tbe same posi ion nt ibis end ol
tbe district that Mr. Armstrong Iihs held
for the entire district. In all probablil)
nothing in this line will be done timi
tbe districts have beeu officially divided,
aalde from some steps to relieve Mr
Armstrong of some nf his present duties
In the way of routine work.
And in connection wltb these reported changes there was a rumor to the
effect that a movement was on foot to
have H. W. tiarnes reinstated as chief
of police. Tbe Miner is loath to credit
the rumor with the slightest toiiudation
Tbe bent thing that can be done fur Mr.
Barnes is to allow bim to rest in the
peaceful bliss uf official retirement,
And, If there Is any man or set of men
endeavoring to have him return to a
position of power iu this district, The
Miner is willing to wager that it can
give tbe reasons.

connection with Sydney ww the wonderful plan aud tht- iijiAchluety, which
mude tlictn luuk unlike any of the

The first thing which Struck uue un
coming tuwaida tho row uf red brick
buildings uiul musses of masonry and
uiuchinery wus lhe fact that, so much
waa open to the air and brilliant
sunlight, which seemed tu penetrate
•very crevice und corner. The immense line of works seemed strung
out frum the furthermost point ot
the ptiiiuaulu, and thu whole story
ot the success uf tha Dominion Steel
und Iron Wurlg) lay possibly in the
fact thut nowhere else in the wurld
bus nut ura prepared so perfectly the
ground for such an enterprise. |
Otae not Jong ago 1 heard a woman
ask:   "Where are the Stetd mines situated at Sydney?      1 heard they gut
the iron .from Belle Isle, where    ull
tht wrecks take place."   She hud not
lived in the age whs-n the only scieit-
titic knowledge deemed posMble    fur
the female sex had. Uqtfp }utpipit.'red in
frum.  that    well-kiirbwii and    plump!
little     text       book,      '■Somebody's
Science  of Things rumlliur.''    when
one did learn that for the mamifuc- j
ture of steel there ure four   different
ingredients required—coal,  ore, limestone and dolomite—alai, if one may '
be allowed    to add another ingredi- ,
ent, "capital." |
It Is needless tu say that the Belle
Isle referred to by the ludy in ques- |
tlutt Is not the Belle Island in Con- '
ception Bay, Newfoundland, 402
miles from Sydney by steamer, frum ,
which the Wubana ore comes. I hud
in my possession some of this ore,
a tiny piece ubuut the size and thickness of a fashionable cigarette case,
of a beautiful ruddy brown color, but
Immensely heavy, considering its
siza- The coal, which is converted into coke, comes by rail frum the Dominion Cual mines, nut more than
sixteen miles away, and the retort
ovens iu which It is prepared are interesting beyond wurds. One cannot
help regretting thut time would not
allow one to spend days in .wutching
the marvels of modem mechanical
science. Tht limestone which we saw
stored in great bins came in barges
from a, point about sixteen miles
from tha works. So, taking It ull
round, the materials, with the exception of the ore, are, practically
apeu' ing, "on the spot." The question of ore, and a further supply, is
one which la of absorbing Int-ercst to
the people of Sydney, for, after
speaking to many men concerned ln
ths matter, one finds that there Is
not, as a general rule, very uunji
confidence felt in the skill and ability
of tht mass of prospectors and mineralogist! on this continent. The
knowledge necessary is in the bunds
of the few, and while there is a general belief that Canada ia immensely
rich in ore of different kiuU, ths proper Impetua has not *v«u yet* been
given to enable us to develop our re-
sourest In this direction, Even to-day
tht process of mining of almost any
kind of ore is so costly that men
having little personal knowledge of
what it required hesitate tu put
their capital into what may bt a
magnificent investment.
There was something splendidly
stimulating and magnificent lq those
giant enterprises which rose up before out at the very Drat step one
took on Canadian soil after leaving
the continent of Europe. One knew
that it was only in January, lvuii,
thut the open-haul!h .process, by
which steel is manufactured in this
age. began work at Sydney, and thut
already ths company are shipping to
England, ths United States, and even
Germany. Masses of shipping . were
crowded along the piers waiting for
tha pig Iron and steel ingots- But
unless ous sees ths works himself
there Is little chance of realizing
what li being dene by the company
lu tht markets of the world. Ont
could not help wishing that Rudyurd

blast sounding like the surf on the
shore. Then, again, there was the

Comers, but one evening tifler /.i-b bud
come up from itn- cornfield bin mother
looked at him In u very wise maimer
aud half whlipored!
"Zeb,  you  can  never kiichs  what's '
happened!    The Slielilons btive nut u
oiiimiii'i* boarder!"
"No, by goshl"
"Yea, they have. I wss there when
she come, its a young woman, uu'
abe brought two trunks. Mrs. Sheldon
bed never let on, though 1 always tell
her everything Unit's golu1 to huppeu
to us. Yes, It's n young woman, uu'
•he's golu' to stay a month."
"Good lookln'?" luqtilred Zeb, with
i little more Interest..
"Handsome as a picture," replied his
mother. "Yes, air; she's tbe hundsoni*
est girl 1 believe I ever see. She's got *
fcrowu hair au' blue eyes an' teeth as
white as chalk. An' when she laughs
It's like the Jingle of Blelgli bells. Zeb,
don't you wont to get a look at her?"
"1 ain't dyin' to but I suppose It
would be etikett to call on her nn'
tort of welcome her to the neighbor*
hood."
"Of course It would, of course. Yea, j
you'd better dress up a bit after supper ■
an' go over, an' If you want nny ex- |
cuie you can ask Mrs. Sheldon to lend j
me her nutmeg grater."
An hour later, dressed In his Sunday
clothes. Zeb walked over to the other
farmhouse. Tanner Sheldon hadn't tin* '
Is lied milking yet. itnd his wife was
still washing dishes, but on the porch
•at tbe young woman witli teeth na
white as chalk. On tlie way over Zeb
hud been preparing n little speech of
welcome, and he Intended to lift bis
hut and sbake hands after the latest
fashion. When he came upon the summer boarder, however, lie was knock- j
ed out. He who bad stood up without
a tremor before 150 people at a spell-
lug match found his heart thumping
and bis throat diy us be stood before
witb her again.    She bowed a llttlr
coldly Instead of extending both buudi
snd  expressing   her  delight   over  the !
hollyhocks,  bulf of  which  were plult
sud Imlf white, and he almost lust hit ,
wits again.    When  no  words  would
come, he climbed an apple tree, shook I
down about  a   bushel  of haul,  green
sppb'M for her, uud though he realised
thut he lnul btirit one suspender In de
sceiidlng  be managed  lo lift  his list
•tut buck awu.v without fulling down
"Zebby," said his molher when lis j
told her about It, "JfOU did Just right.
There wasn't sny uae In ss.vlu' any |
tiling. You acted shy sn' coy, su'
that wns better than a rial of itilk. 1
know girls better ii you do, su' you
needn't worry. 1 believe I'd like to
hlive you tunny tbis girl." -
"I believe I'd like to," be replied as
lie sauntered away lo think things
over. As he whs going over the case
lu bis mind It occurred to him lhat he
wil.-. somewhat biimllcupped by being
engaged to Laura Lattinier. He would
remove the hundlcup at once, aud before he slept he sat down and wrote
a letter that did the business.
The next morning a hoiupiet of pinks
awaited the summer boarder at Sheldon's, and that evening Zeb culled with
a grim determination to express the
hope that she wus enjoying herself.
She did not appear on the porch, however, and after tulkttig with Farmer
Sheldon for au hour about the crops
be went home. He was looking and
feeling glum, but his mother said:
"Zebby, you don't understand girls.
She didn't come out because she Is coy
an' shy, like you, an' perhaps Mrs.
Sheldon had been Jokln' her. You Just
keep right on as you are doln'."
He kept on. Every morning he aent
a bouquet gathered wltb his own
bunds, and every evening be called.
Sometimes the summer boarder sat on
tbe porch with Mr. and Mrs, Sheldon,
but the only remark she ever made to
him was to ask if there were auy
beurs In the neighborhood, He accepted his mother's rosy views and fell In
love.. Also for six nights ln succession
he played the accordion in front of
Sheldon's.
Three weeks hnd passed, and he wss
making up his mind to press things a
little more, when Mrs. Sheldon Informed bim as be banded in a bouquet
of peppermint and forgetmeuots combined thut tbe summer bosrder hud
left. There was no message for him -
no farewell. Mrs. Sheldon even had
the cruelty to say that bis name bud
never even been mentioned by the departed boarder and that the hollyhock
bouquets were supposed to have come
from ber own garden.
Zeb turned away with a cliill at his
heart. When be reached home, bis
mother tried to say something consoling, hut he froze her with n look and
passed on to the barn. He intended to
bang himself; but, being unable to tlnd
a rope and realising that a chain would
hurt too much, he gave up the idea
und wandered down into the cornfield,
An hour later his fond mother found
him asleep with a pumpkin for s pillow .and a squash apparently ailing us
sentinel over his slumbers. She wiped
n tear from the corner of his eye and
whispered:
"Poor, poor Zebbyl He can't understand that this girl went away because
she waa afraid she was fulllu' lu love
with bim!"

where ull maples; are on un equality,
to regret that th*-*. silver maple, with
lis early buds and delicately-outlined loaves, has not been our choice,
says Tin; Toronto Ulobe, The silver

now coille forth to fulllll their mission, are roundel* und mote obtusa
than th* foliage buds, which will
stioii.elouguls und lull uway from ths
pule, green, downy leaves. The beuu-
ty of these leaves is in their deep,
narrow sinuses and loug, slender-
pointed and sharply-indented lubes.
Tbe live main divisions und many
sharp subdivisions of the leuf could
not be mors gracefully outlined than
in aature'i pattern. Their color,
pale given above und silvery white
beneatb, matches their delicate outlines, and their slender, drooping
Stem* Rouble thvpi to turn with every
passing '\>ind,' though not with the
uuifoi'tuity of the aspens. This is un
early umple, and its familiar two-
Wingud seeds will be on the ground
aud stfivjng to sprout and take root
before the seeds of our chosen em--
blem bave matured on their stems.
The red maple Is also early, and its
mulo buds ure already tramped into
the boulevards or swept into the
carts of thu scavangers. Their hrst
appearance u. f«w weeks ago, red,
swelling and putting forth the deli-
cute grow tii they had treasured
through tbu winter was an announcement uf spring. The seeds of
thu maple ripen in May, turn a
bright- red and full, taking root at
once if condition**; are favorable. Ths
leaves ar¥ of a more substantial pattern than those of the silver maple,
the divisions between the lobes being
angular and not so deep. In color
they are a brighter green above and
of a duller white beneath, but they
can bs dfsllngu(shed from the leaves
of the ijtgar maple by their sharply-
Serrated margin. They present .the
in,.st   beautiful uf autumn colors.
The suyer maple, which we claim
ns our very own, does not find the
city cpngenlal, and does not attain
the splendid proportions familiar in
the woods ol easftii Ontario and
f-luebef. It is mu a precocious tree,
and tliy f inter buds, both or flowers
end larvae, are still dormant un its
braiuhvi. Both open about the same
time, and while the soft, downy
young leaves are shedding tha elongated it'flles that huv« encased them

The sycamore mupie is familiar,
though a KuiypHan immigrant. ' Its
leaves have the characteristic five
lobes, but art quits distinct! t in
appearance, being darker and thicker
1 than those of the sugar maple, and
having ruu'idiy and obscurely toothed margins. Like the Norway maple,
it reiuins Its foliage later than our
r.atlva trees. The ash-leaved or California maple -should be more popular, but its compound leaves of from
three to five ■leaflets' seem a bar to
Its claim to membership in the chosen family. It retains its seeds -late
Into the fall, and seems reluctant t.t
part with them even after Its leaves
nave fallen. The little spike maple
Is met occasionally in our. suburban
woods. The five lobes of its leaves
stem; crowded into three, and they
have   a llnely-wrinkled    appearance,

She invalid
Requires nourishment in a concentrated, palatable and easily
digestible form. Bovril should therefore form one of the
chief items on the diet list of every invalid, as it is the
embodiment of all these qualities.
Bovril is not merely a stimulant to prop up the flagging
spirits tor the passing hour. It is a highly nourishing food,
containing all the strength-giving properties of the best lean
beef in the most palatable and easily digestible form.
Bovril is Liquid Life.

MINING NOTES.
The rich sands of the Cariboo country
hitherto discarded, have beeu assayed
by tbe provincial mineralngint ami found
to carry high values In gold. This
means much for the Cariboo iliatiicl,
and placer mining will spriug up there
upon the receipt of tbe news. Strange
es it may appear, It bas not been till,
this year that anyone thought of assaying the black sands for values. Tbe
provincial mineralogist this year took a
quantity of tbe sand that had been
throw* aside and assayed It with the.'
results shove stated. Tbere is ittiv
aniuuut ol liiiil in the Cariboos that will
now be Worked for gold. The atra Is
large snd will make an imuieune plac*r
mining field. For a number ot years
the Cariboo country ,ha-j been known to
be rich in minerals, but little placer
mining has been done. It is uow
thought placer worklugs will assume
important propprttoueiu the district.
The closing or the amelting plants of
the stale of. Muutaua, owned by the
Amalgamated Copper company, st Ana
conda, Butte ami Great Falls, is hang
ing In the balance. At a meeting of
the directors ofthe company to be held
ahortly after toe first of the mouth iu
New York, positive action will be taken
and, if it Is decided to close, 10.000 men
will be thrown out of employment. Thia
corporation la the largest copper smelting company in the world, and action
eucb aa It is said every indication points
to will have an effect on every copper
atate lo the United Slates. The lowest
wage paid is $3 a day.
Over f 1,000,000 of ore has been stolen
from some of the rich mines about Fort
Sumpter, Oregon. Tbere was a combination between trusted employes and

Tbe Coal Covpasy.
The output of coal from the I tree collieries of the .Crow's Neat l'ar-s Coal
company for tht month ot January is
the largest monthly output io the history of the company says the Fernie
Free Press.
The following figures give the correct
returns up to last night and today's returns are estimated by averaging for the
past week. The figures are if, anything,
underestimated aa the last days of the
month always reach above the nver-ige:
,Coal Creek 20 000
Michel 20.000
Morrlssey 15,000
Michel's production is steadily IncresB-
Ing, the result of the extensive development work done there lest summer and
bow It is a neck and neck race between
that colliery and Coal Creek.
Tbe largest previous record wss in
Msrcb, 1902, when 53,000 tons were mined. The outlook is promising and no
fears art entertained by the mangement
of the company that they will not be
able to supply the ever Increasing de*
meads of the British Columbia market
The TrslueiH-i Bill.
One of the most delightful events of
tht season waa the ball given jn the
Wentwortb ball .Monday evening by the
engineers and firemen for tbe railway
employees of the Crow. The ball had
beto beautifully decorated lor lhe occasion, and a profusion cf signs! lamps,
switch lights,. and trainmen's lanterns
addedmucb to the beauty and aignifiance
of the occasion. While the crowd was
sooaewbat large for the hall, all present
enjoyed tbemselvrs thoroughly and
wending their way home at a late hour
all voted the trainmen's ball ont of
tbt apst pleasant evenings of the
.winter.

Road to Spokssc.
Tbat Cranbrook ia to have a direct
road lo Spoksne Is no longer a quotation.
The new road pnjected by Senator
Turner end D. C, Corhtn, of Spokane,
and other capitalists, ia without a doubt
backed by the C P. R. The road wiil
be built from Spokane to 1 point on the
boundary line In Idaho, about ten or
fifteen miles from Tocbty. The-C. P.
R. will build from tbat point to connect
witb tbe Spokane line, giving a direct
route from Cranbrook to Spokane.
Mr. Corbln, who built tha- Spokane
Falls & Northern, hss just returned to
Spoksne from Montreal and New York,
and expressed himself as follows:
During the present year, the.railroad
will, without queatloo, bt built to connect Spokane with the Canadian Pacific.
I do not say tbat this road will be built
by the Canadian Pacific, but It Will connect with it. That is all I cart to nay
for the present."
That looks good to Cranbrook.
