Ue lefl the Quadra at 5.30 p.m. ami
wiui inlo lhe woods where Lord
Lascellcs had the previous dav killed
a mountain goal uml two deer. Alter
penetrating somo distance into ttie
forest he lost his way and nighl came
ou, When lie tailed to return lev
dinner there was lntonso excitement
oa the Quadra and the steam whistle
was kept blowing constantly, (Ires
were built on too beach and search
parties were sent into the woods.
Meanwhile tlie Governor-General
hail olimhed over fallen trees, (ought
his wav through the undergrowth and
slid down rocks in the darkness,
tearing his clothes in rags. On one
occasion he came lo the edge iff a
precipice, feeling liis way with an alpine stick, which he carried as well as
a rifle, The stick slipped from his
hand and cluttered down a considerable distance below. Then he realized what a narrow escape from death
lie had.
He onee more turned back and failing lo find his way dually, afler many
struggles, sank down exhausted after
live and a half bonis of unavailing effort, lie was so hungry and exhausted that ho leaned anainst what
ho took to be a log, but it proved to
he a shadow, and he tumbled Into the
undergrowth, whore he sank down un
a llat rock to await daylight. Soon
afterwards lie saw thc reflection of
(ires. It was an Indian encampment.
Then he flretl bis rifle and the shot
was heard by a search party, whieh
shouted, ami when his answering call
was beard, the rescuers hurried to
him, guided by liis shouts. They
hurried him to the shore, where the
waiting hunt luok him to the Quadra.
Earl Grey is a member of the Are-
tie Brotherhood at Dawgon, ami had
interesting receptions there and at
White Horse, Skagway and I'rinee

aud on Monday of tbis week liis men
were engaged in threshing oats. lie
also has a large vegetable and fruil
garden and guests at. liis delightful
retreat are always sure of n meal uf
fresh vegetables, and fruits as well as
dniutily served and unusually well
prepared meats. Tbe "genius" term
is applicable to this man Hanson because lie iias every modern convenience installed at this hotel twenty-
five miles from a railroad. lie uses
iln- mountains streams to supply
power for n small electric light plant
and every room in the hotel and oilier buildings as well as the grounds,
are lighted by incandescent lights.
This stream also supplies water for
baths and toilets in tbe hotel. As a
matter of fact a visitor can go to the
Wasa hotel and enjoy practically all
the comforts of a modern summer
hotel. Tbe scenery at this particular
point is as magnificent as one could
find iu the Rockies. In this rolling
valley, dot inl with its ripening and
ripened grain, its trees and lakes, its
well kept buildings, the view is inspiring aud one longs tor the opportunity of remaining tliere without restraint.
A I rip from Cranbrook in Wa^n and
from Wasa to Fort Steele and hack
to    Cranhrook is a revelation to    a
prairie citizen. We think the eountrv
up in the Rockies of thf East Kootenays is only good for milling ami
lumbering, bul a trip in V. Hyde
linker's auto over tbe surprisingly
good roads of this dislriel along level
prairie stretches and up lbe side of a
small mountain wilh the valley he-
low, garbed in lhe green of llie grass,
11 ees and native vegetation, and
streaked here and Ihere wiib the
blue of a winding mountain river aud
lhc gold of the ripening grain, arouses tbe stranger to tbe beauties and
resources of lliis Canadian Switzerland. Ranchers arc located throughout the dislriel and Ihev raise vegetables, fruil, small und large, cattle
and horses. Most of the grain they
raise they use in feeding their own
stock. Kasi Kootenay's tut ure is
not measured hy the lumber and mining industries. With the felling of
lbe trees will come Uie (dealing of
the stumps and seeding of the [mils,
vegetables and grains, and through-
mil thc beautiful valleys in a few
years will he many small farms,
where there are loday only one or
two in a stretch of country.
Tbe ride hack from Wasa to Cranhrook via Fori Sleele is a repetition
of similar conditions onlv the scenery
seems lo he grander. Fort Steele is
aged, but slill able to do business
without a railroad. Us main street
looks very much like an old Ontario
village. ' Ils past is its fondest memory. In the davs of tbe gold rush
f-'ort Steele was a lively spot, but the
subsiding of the mining bnom and
ibe building of the railroad into
Cranbrook, look the life out of tbe
place. The people living there have
beautiful scenery to worship, good
gardens to cultivate, a river lo cap-
lure lish from, and a glorious past to
I all; about.
East Kootenay, its beauties, anil
ils resources, cannot be described by
anyone wlio saw most of it from an
automobile, but    if    the impressions
made from a closer observation arc
as groat as those formed in a whirl
along the roads then a book would
nol sullicc lo release our opinions.
Cranbiook, tbe ccnlwr of this particularly beautiful district, is fortunate iu having such a whole-souled,
enthusiastic, good-hearted citizen as
V. Hyde Maker. His auto, one ol the
besl that money can buy, is always
at the seiviee o'f people who want to
see the country. Mr. Haker has
made tri|is through to Uolden on the
C.P.H. main line with Marl Orey aud
Premier MeBride and in consequence
these men have ever since been sounding thi- praises of the Windermere, as
belter lhan Switzerland, adjacent to
i'ranhrook, loo. V. Hvde linker and
his auto ought lo he subsidized by
ihe It. ('. government and bonused hv
the ciiy Council of Cranbrook, for
between Ibem tbey are doing a heap
io keep Kasi Kootenay and Cran-!
brook in the limelight..
THK COAI. SITUATION'.
Predictions for a bright future for
tbe coal mines of the McGiilivray
Creek Coal & Coke company, Ltd.,
bave taken on a definite form liv the
daily shipment of carloads of eoal
from the companv's town of Carbondale, Alherta. On the 3llth dav of
-luly last lhe first carload of coal
was shipped by the company, and
since thai lime as many as threo
•arlonds have been shipped daily.
The eoal is of n specially high grade
steam quality, and construction of
coke ovens for the manufacture of
coke will be commenced carlv this
full. The development of the" Me-
Gilllvrny Creek Coal & Coke company's property has attracted no
| slight attention in Ibis part of the'
country. All the advantages which
experience and enterprise carry with
them have been applied to the opening up of the many large seams    of
coal wliich are fouud on the 2600
acres of crown grant coal land,
which the company owns. The erection of the plant is well under way,
and ollicials of lhe eompany is an interview recently slated that liy December 1st next, shipments from tbe
mine would be increased to 500 tons
daily. This will make the McGiilivray mine one of the large producers
of the Crows Nest Pass district, and
will insure a bright future for the
company's town of Carbondale, Alberln. ' Huilding activity bas already
commenced al Carbondale, many of
the company's buildings having been
finished, and plans arc under way
foi1 tbe construction of a number of
cottages for lhe miners and office employes of the company. Man- offers
have been received for the site and
exclusive hotel privileges, and the
most disinterested observer cannot
help hut realize the exceptional op-
portunfty in all lines of business at
Carbondale.
WHEN     BRISBANE     ANRWKRE1)
HARVEY.
At a dinner given some Ume ago
in honor of Lord N'ortbelilTe, proprietor of the London Times, Mr. Arthur
Brisbane responded to a toast. This
versatile fashioner of the popular cdi-
torlal bad sat quietly for some time
listening tu a corporation lawyer
who advised bis hearers to "beware
of lhe man who expresses sympathy for the poor," and to Colonel
Oeorge Harvey, who stated a few
words of the evils of socialism and
ihe blessings of wealth. When Mr.
Brisbane was introduced he proceeded
iu his short, snappy sentences to give
liis hearers as straight a talk as thev
ever listened to in tlieir lives. He
evidently felt if his duty at the
Norlheliffe dinner to tell his self-
satisfied and successful audience that
ibe great common people, of which he
is the self-appointed spokesman, really exists. Mr. Brisbane said in
part:
"This is a fine gathering of powerful men, hig fortunes, and great reputations. 1 want lo say something
for tlie men who never had a million
dollars, never got on lbe payroll of a
millionaire.
"1 don't want NorthcHfic to go
hack to England believing tliat a man
without a million in Hus country
might as well bide under the table
or jump idi Uie dock.
"The real American nation, its ieal
resources, its real ability, are hidden
among those unknown' seventy nine
millions lhat never go to Delmonico's, most of whom know as
lillle ahout terrapin as about bird's
nest soup.
"Mr. Harvey says very truly, 'The
great reward 'must go to tlie man of
great ahilily.' True. Mut what is
llie great reward, and what do ^ou
call great ability?
I "If I scatter money iu the slice!
| and a thousand eager men dive to get
' it, I am holding up one bind of a reward, and I call forth one kind of
ability,
"But if a child is 'n danger of its
life, and a man risks bis life in save
it, lhat situation calls onu a different
kind of ahilily, and reveah a man
who asks for a higher reward than
cash.
"We are paying too much attention
here to the men that scramble for
[pennies, fnr dollars and for iv.ilHonS.
Tbey are able, strong men, lui Huv
are not the American nation, iuv the
besl men in it.
"Colonel Harvey savs that if ynu
take ten thousand men out id this
country—tlie ablest- ten Him'san-I—the
count ry will fall to pieces. He
might as well say lhat it vou i.i'e
ten apples off a tree, the Iree iv'U
wither and fall. Not a hit of il.
Vou men with money and power ere
the shiny apples on the tree.     .The
sunlight, the warmth, the praise, arc
for you, but you are only the passing
fruit. The" real tree is thc thick
trunk. The real power is witn those
roots hidden in tiie soil.
"And in this nation, the real power, the root of lhe nation, is the
mass of people—too often, like, the
tree's roots, bidden below in the dark
and cold. Bul from those roots,
irom the people, comes all the real
power. j
"And when this nation, and you
prosperous men, face a perilous situation, as you have done in the past
and vuu will do in the future, you
will find the man to help you and to
save you, not at this table, not at
Delmonico's.
"There was trouble before the civil
war, serious trouble. Did the
People call upon a rich corporation
lawyer or a great banker? No. j
Tl.cy asked a little country lawyer,!
with nothing hut a good name, and a1
brain, ami a heart to save the country, i
"When that man, Lincoln, needed
help in iiis great work, to whom did
lie look? Did he find the man in
V01 street? No. Wall Street was
quite busv, as usual, picking up har-
iains in bonds.
"Genernl Grant was there among
lhc roots of the people, out of sight,
unknown. He did not have a million
dollars, and Delmonico's prices were
beyond bis reach. But be bad the
Treat ability, and when the nation
was ready to offer him what is really
Hie great reward—honor and elory—
be was ready.
"H will always lie so; the force is
in Hie people. Tbe sl length of the
soup is at the bottom of the boiling
liquid, not in tbe pretty greasy,
bubbling -scum Hint floats on top.
"There are big men iu llie United
Slates waiting for lhe reward worthv
of lbe men we have been talking
about or looking at here. These
truly greal     men never had a bank
account, not even a certificate of deposit, but Uiey are the American nation and tlicy are America."—San

in our sister city. "Fine," he said,
"never better, lots of building going

"That's the way to talk," said a
bystander, who hailed from Chicago.
"Always say things are good in your
town, and, when everyone does that,
things will be good. Be a missionary. You want missionaries here.
Every man in your town should talk
the same way and especially when on
the outside, for even I, a stranger,
i can sec that husiness is slowly but
surely improving here and tt is well
I to let people know it, and let, Uiem
.know that you know it. Tell everyone you meet that times nro better

THERE IS A GOUD ATTENDANCE
AND MUCH  INTEREST  EVINCED.
The public schools of Craubrook
opened last Wednesday morning with
a good attendance, yet considerable
iiiinculLy was experienced owing to
the lacK oi accommodation, as the

for her school children as any town
of twice her size in the province. For
the present the school will oceupj
temporary quarters abuut the ill.-
and the new building will be ready
ior occupancy about the lirsl week in
Ootoher. The enrollment for the
Inst day, which is always small was
ubuul. two hundred. The assignment
ol teachers is as follows;
Senior grade—Principal 1*. .1. Cranston, B.A.
Intermediate grade—First assistant—Miss Caldwell and Miss All-
ward.
.Junior grade—Misses Stewart,
Hall and Kraser.
The enrollment in the high school
on lbe lirst day was 15, under the instruction of Miss Crandall, B.A.
The primary room, which will he
in charge of Miss Kraser, has not
been open as yet, owing to lack ol

arranging for a room today. Mr.
Cranston, Uie principal, appreciates
Uie fait that matters are in a rather
disorganized condition, owing to the
destruction of the old school house hy

READ THE HERALD
PLAYGROUNDS   OK Till-: WORLD.
Western Canada is often spoken of
as absorbed iu llie mere pursuit of
monev, to the entire neglect of recreation. It is true that real estate
speculation forms a largo peoplo, hut
this does not impair the elaim ol
ibis region tti being one ot the greatest natural playgrounds ol the world.
From lhe western boundary o( Ontario to the Pacific, tliere are millions ol aires where mini's desire to
spend a vacation wilh nature mav he
gratified on the most stupendous
scale. Tlte plains themselves invite
the tourist hv tbeir seeming limitless
spaces and freedom. In Ontario we
rejoice iu our rolling, tortile landscapes. We boast of our inland seas
and id our wooded wilderness of the
north, Nevertheless, we enter upon
tbe prairie wilh a feeling of reliel and
a sense of being overwhelmed by the
unbroken expanse of sky and plain,
Kiwiis au impression that the tender-
fool parts from with difficulty, that
if be walks a few miles iu any direction lie will drop over (lie nice of a
precipice.
Scores of new villages ami (owns
lmve como inlo living within n few
years. Homesteads are being occupied iu figures thai rejoice tho politicians, and yel there is no sense of
crowding. Mouses are, perhaps, a
mile or two apart in even lbe moderately thlckly-pcoplod disirieis. Millions of acres of unbroken hind along
ttie railways leave yel ample SUBSC8-
lion of iiu'" virgin geese, now ami then
a herd of antelope, onee in a wliile a
wandering coyote, and in tbe lull the
whirr of Hit'" prairie chicken are vet
evidences of the newness of the land.
To see    this    Bottling process,      to
wateh the coming id the strangers,
to note here the bachelor's one-roomed shack, to observe there the two-
Isloried house of a more prosper
| farmer, to witness the adoption of
Canadian ways by men and women
bill recently foreign to our language
and our customs—these are some ot
i the daily Incidents ihat* inspire the
' line citi7.eu who visits the plains
lliis epoch-making era. The map
being re-made every month. Thc
posl ollice authorities and the rail
ways are compelled to find names for
the new places. The wholesale merchants and manufacturers are continually remaking their travelers'
routes, ami by tbeir credit and encouragement the clerks of yesterday
are the owners of the big stores      of
loday. The retail merchants arc
forced to frequent extensions ot their
premises as lhe population increases,
and towns and eities begin a lively
rivalry for the possession of the most
satisfactory census returns.
One of tbe most hopeful facts about
il is the widespread optimism. Cynical easterners may refer to these
meu ns hoomslers. That- is scarcely
fair. 11 is a form of civic and even
national patriotism—exaggerated perhaps in some instances, hut never
foolish iu its origin or motive. Enter Calgary today and vou will hear
Ihat this is the best eily in the West
loday. In Edmonton tomorrow ihcy
will tell you there is nothing to compare witli their location and pros-
pi els. Go to Regina next week antl
vtm will he told lhat no city in the
Wesi has made such satisfactory recent progress. In Winnipeg no one
will admit that their supremacy west
ol tbe lakes will ever he rivalled. The
same proud local spirit prevails in
Bawlf, in Camrose, in Melville, in
Vcgrevillc and a hundred other new
places whose names are equally unfamiliar to you.
What has all Ihis lo do wilh a vacation? .lust this: that no easterner can visit this region without experiencing a glow over the progress
and growth of his country, anil without currying away some of the spirit
of enterprise which causes a new
region tn force nhead. Hence the
claims of the West as worthy of a
visit from those seeking vest and instruction.
Not tbat the lessons of the prairie,
first of all, are limited to her facts
of commerce or the incitement to better citizenship. It has ils beauties
by day and by night. Hs waving
fields "of grain, green in summer and
golden in early autumn, are masses
of bewildering color. Her How of
sunshine, varied hy fleecy clouds, her
gorgeous sunsets in the richest of
tones by the greatest of painters,
Nature, ami ber nights under lhe
aurora, when the mystical waves of
light, now curving from' north lo
east, and now bursting across the
heavens like a cloud of glorified rock-
els, are an entertainment upon the
grandest of scales. Her trails are
straight aud far, and whether you
fare upon tbem on foot or horse or
automobile, thev carry you through a
garden of the gods, the wayside carpeted with a profusion of wild llowcrs.
"These the   unshorn fields, boundless
and beautiful."
With such a record for the plains,
what remains to be said of the
mountains? All that may he said
by this or any other pen of feeble
man will be inadequate. It has taken years to awaken a sense ol appreciation for this sea of rocks and
I ices, glaciers and stum fields. They
are not made for everyone. Pew
Visit Ibem without at first a sense of
depression, a feeling of boinu overwhelmed and shut in. It is onlv nu
evidence of lbe coyness ot these wild
iliings of nature: they refuse to ho
wooed at lirst sight. To cross Hum
hv railwav is lo ascend the vallev ui
a rushing torrent, lo pass huge lumbering, dark peaks, streaked here and
Hiere wilh denial snow; lo cross the
Great Divide, descend tbe valley- of
another rushing river, spend a half
day climbing another valley, descend
onco more and liye-aud-byn come out
through a canyon of mystery and
gloom, and following the hanks'of the
Kraser emerge at the eity of Vancouver, already nearly half the size ol
Toronto.
This breathless summary applies
only lo those who do not stay ofi,
and Ihey are the unfortunates who
miss the true spirit of the mountains
and are ignorant of their best scenery.
Take it another way. Maybe you
approach Banff in early morning ns
lhe eastern sun is painting the whitened peaks in rosy gleams. Thc
green waters of the How dash at your
feel. You pass the Three Sisters,
and gel. au impression of the originality of Nature's architeelural designs. Variety comes sborllv in the
forms of Castle anil Cathedral Mountains. You surely will slny at DiinfT
in the heart of lbe 7,41)11 square
miles National park. Here you may
dip iu (be hot sulphur spring In which
watercress grows, surrounded liy thc
zero frosts of winter, and you may
climb Tunnel   or Sulphur mountains,
couple ni lesser peaks apparently
dgned foi tyros. If you bave time
i will drive to Lake Miniiewanka,
I Inspect ihe "hoodoos," a freak
formation ut rock column some miles
from tbe town. If your time is limited vnu will tun iv tin to I.aggau and
visit the Incomparable lakes in thc
clouds. Lake Louise is tbe queen of
inland waters, a jewel set, in a basin
of mountains ami glaciers whose varying moods anil tempers are as Irresistible as are those of womankind.
The path io the lesser lakes above,
Mirror and Agnes, is through a beautiful wood, where even iu summer a
sprinkle of snow may unexpectedly
transform the woodland I rail into
fairyland. Uiih each stage of the
ascent new sislas open until one
i caches i lie shores of Agnes lo see

land below, am! to gain inspiration

Valley of lhc Ten IVuks, whieh, lis

mountains iiuil makes a formidable
impression ol nature's grandeur. A
mile larthci is hake u'llara, where
the Alpine iiiiii will camp in August,
a spot comparallvclj little known
nut pronounced hy somo to excel in
ueauly even Lako Louise.
No span- Is Icll to speak of Emerald hike, tho Yoho valley, lhe Assom
lakes, uv a dozen other almost initially
well known regions iu tho mountains,
or of the mystical grandeur of the
eraser canyon. The Dominion park

NOTES.
I'tidi-aiilincss iu food tends lo-
ward disease.
(live the calves lhc sunniest, warmest cornor in the ham.
If your butter has a nice appearance
uml a good (lavor, vou will be sure to
gel top-notch prices.
Wrong management is generally the
cause of bad luck. Oood luck nail
proper management go hand iu hnnd.
POI I.TUV   MARKETING.
Never use dirty boxes or barrels tor
shipping poultry.
Do not attempt to grow broilers on
'fee lunge. Too much exercise
toughens them.
See that tire crop ol the dressed
fowl is empty hetore sending it to
mu r sel.
Scalded poultry will do tor nearby
markets, bul fnr lung shipments the
luicnsrs should be dry picked,
Au ovcrfnl fowl makes a very unattractive looking carcass.
It will puv in well fatten lhe poultry before killing.
A pale or sickly looking fowl
should never be sent lo market.
Dork pin feathers spoil tho looks of
the dressed bird.
For a week or ten days belore killing great care should be laken thai
lire fowls ,li, in.i got fi„„i that will

onions, etc.
CHICKENS LIKE SUNSHINE.
(live chickens a chance to get out
Into lire sunshine ns olteu ns possible. They ean endure quite cold
weather wltlioul feeling il. In fair
weather, if lbe winil docs not blow,
I would not keep my chickens con-
lined nny day when t'he temperature
wns not lower Iban 15 above zero.

If ynu have any cockerels in the
cockerel pen Hint nre cowed down by
lbe bullies of lhe (lock, remove them
to the pullet peii so that they may
have n chance lo thrive.
Crude pel roleum, colored with
