'article from wliich the following is taken :
FERROL
"This is a successful combination of thc well-
known valuable remedies, Cod Liver Oil, Iron and
Phosphorus. The formula is nn secret, and cur
analysis showed the presence and amount of constituents as described. The preparation is a good one
ami of distinct therapeutic value. The association of
an easily assimilable oil, in a fun' statu nf division,
wiih a phosphatic salt of Iron which dues nut disturb
the digestive functions ami which is easily tolerated,
determines its success as a food and tonic in wastiny
diseases,"
What the London Lancet recommends as a food
and a tunic in ull wastinij diseases must have miv
special qualities,
No higher endorsation ii possible, lli*' results

as possible. We can settle that question for you. Everybody says that our Christmas stock is the
best ever seen in this western country. What everybody says is true, and all you have to do is see
it. Not only is our stock the largest, but it was bought rightt as it was bought direct of the manufacturers, and YOU ARE QOINO TO GET THE BENEFIT. Our prices are right and we challenge
comparison with any eastern catalogue.
SATURDAY   IS   TOY   DAY
Oon't delay. We will hold your purchases until Christmas Eve if you desire and deliver at that
time.   Oon't forget the proposition that
90 Cents in Cash is as Qood as $1.00 in Credit Here
We take a pride in Cranbrook. That is why we have given this city a stock lhat would be a credit to
a city many times larger than Cranbrook. We are anxious to please the people in variety of Chf istmas
stock, in quality of goods displayed, and, above all, in the low price for which you can make your
purchases. It don't make any difference what you want, we can satisfy you. It don't make any difference how much or how little you intend to spend for gifts, our prices will meet the case.
REMEMBER.
The place to please yourself and save money in buying Christmas presents is where the dollar goes
a long ways.

HERALD'S  AUTISTIC   ADS.
A great many people have commented upon the neat appearn'tiic-e ol
the manv advertisements in last
week's 'Herald. It takes money
to get up good looking ads. in a
paper, lor the reason that it, takes
men who know how to set ails, and
they eost money, it takes plenty of
material ol the latest designs, and
that costs money, and it takes time,
ond that' costs money. But the
Herald wants only the best and is
ready at any time to spend thc
money.

The Herald is a little large again
tbis week and long on ads. and short
on reading matter. But the rest of
the year the Herald prints more
[rending matter than any two weekly papers in this- part of Canada,
and as lhe advertisers insist on doing business in the Herald, why, it is
necessary to accommodate them.
Hereafter the Herald will make the
same charge for all political notices
that It does for notices for the business men. This applies to all parties, whether it he Conservative,
Liberal, Socialist or Independent. Of
course the Herald will always print
lhe news, but ollieial notices for any
party or individual duly authorized
will he charged for the same as any
other business notice.

With all the emphasis of which type is capable we want to direct

we will be in the thick of the holiday distribution. Our buying was
done long ago, and everything is now ready for your looking or your

Get that Christmas smile ready.
Buy early and save the clerks and
at the same time secure better bargains for yourself.
How happy you will he Christmas
depends a good deal on how happy
you try to make other people.
Those turkeys are flying high this
>ear. They will cost in the neighborhood uf 25 cents a pound.
Cobalt has put the kibosh on some
of the speculators.
Most people can be happy on
Christmas if they just think so.
The great need just now in the
printing office at Victoria is a map
of tlie upper coast that is accurate.
The maps issued at tbe present time nre sadly off, so much so
in fact that they are worthlrss
as a source of information.
Thc Cranbrook board of trade
should take up the matter of a federal building in Cranbrook. The
government bbsiness ar this point
justifies the granting of an appropria-
t ion for that purpose. Some one
should get a loud move on without
delay.
The autos have gone Into retirement for the winter. There is less
blue in the atmosphere as a con-
setjuence.
The McBride government should
never brag about that surplus. It is
easy to secure a surplus when you
tax the people heavier and cut down
public improvements. The idea of
cutting down publje improvements,
except In favored districts, is a burning shame. We do not believe that
there is a man in tbe Cranbrook district, no matter whether be is a
Liberal, Conservative, or what he
is, who will admit privately, that
ihis district has received her just
dues the past three years. The
t;ixes have increased and what has
the    district   to show  for it?    To
il. 	
tbe province was brought to bear
to keep the courts [rom opening the
lulloi boxes uf the Kernie district,
hied ami ab-uotlcd hy the government officials, What is rotten in
London, Ont., to the ranting moralists of the Conservative party of
British Columbia, becomes as the
attar uf ruses when the stench is
brought nearer lo home. Wc have
no use for such political hypocrisy.
A little honesty iu politics mighl
be an innovation, but it would be a
great thing nevertheless.
Wc have got a hunch that there
will not he an election until the
[rust is out of the ground all over
lhc province. Then an election will
be called and an army of men will
he turned loose all over the province
building roads, trails, hridges, public
buildings, and each riding will be
Invaded in this way with an industrial brigade that will be expected to
do its duty hy tbe McBride government. The scheme is au old one, and
some times successful, in the case
of the McBride administration it will
fall flat. Tbe people will not be
fooled that easily.
McBride now says that he docs not
propose to make a political issue of
the better terms question. We have
said all thc time that he would be
foolish to do so, for the reason tliat
it would fall of its own weight long
before election. The premier has
taken the advice of some wise politician in his party.
The trusts of the United States
raised the pay of all employees a
short time ago with a great flourish
of trumpets. They are now quietly
raising the price of everything to
play even, lt is the old story. The
consumer must linally meet the cost.
Why not raise sugar beets in East
Kootenay? That question plight be
worth while for thc government to
investigate. A beet sugar factory
in East Kootenay would be a great
tiling.
Thc Happy New Year. While you
are celebrating Christmas don-'t forget.
British Columbia fruit has captured another prize in the Old Country.
And yet British Columbia has uot
been scratched as yet. It is a great
province.
Prince Rupert is destined to be a
hig town, and within two years after
the town is opened tliere will be business lots selling tor more than Bob
Green let the band ot adventurers,
male and female, have the whole
thing for.
The Victoria Colonist snys that
there is no difference between the
attitude or the two parties on the
tariff question. There is atl tho
difference in the world. The Liberal party stands for a tariff that
will prove beneficial to the'people as
a whole. The Conservative party
would raise the tariff until special
interests would reap lhe benefit and
tbe masses would pay the expense.
Does Mr. Pope or any other person
say that Judge Clement paid $7,(HIU
for his appointment. Tin- vile chargu
of the gentleman from tbe cast
should have been condemned by every
paper in British Columbia. It was
false on the face of it, and was used
for political effect alone.
If the present gait of misrepresent-
tion and partisan radicalism is tept
up by the Conservative press ot this
province before the campaign is over
there will be no limit to their attacks. Already the Kaslo Kootena-
ian and the Sandon Miner have
reached far into the unknown in
their personal abuse, evidently at tho
" chest   of thoio     who    put up    tho
nicy, ''but is enrryiu-; .mli tic.il

Percy Goodcnrath, the well known
correspondent, has just got married.
That is the hest assignment that
you ever took, Percy, and here's

There have been three Issues of
the local M.c,Brirle organ since the
vile slander was uttered against J.
A. Macdonald, tbe Liberal leader,
charging him with interfering with
the Fernie conl strike in favor of the
compnny and against the Interests
of the men. And yet no apology
has been given nor any explanation
offered. Is tbat tbe plan of campaign that McBride's organs throughout the province propose to follow?
If that is true the people will be fully prepared and will know how much
dependence to place on any statement made against Mr. Macdonald or
his party.

W. F. Tate & Son have just received a magnificent Waltham wall show
case, one of tbe finest of the kind
ever brought into the Kootenays.

P. H. Johnson, of Calgary, agent
for the Hall Safe company, and one
of the greatest hustlers in this part
of the country, dropped into town
this evening and sold a sale before
he left the station platform. They,
don't make many salesmen like:
Johnson.
Did you notice the mild weather today?    Did you notice the sign of a
chinook? It was all due to the arrival of Joe Youngheart, one of the
chosen people. Debonair as usual,
a few new stories, immaculate in appearance, Joe wafted into the city
and met a host of friends who are
always pleased to see him. He will
eat pork and beans at Winnipeg for

tiEORGE HILLIER LEAVING.
George Hillier, who for years   has
been the   C, P. R.    agent    at this
'point,  leaves     next week for Lady-
smith, to take   charge of the C. P.
R.   station    at   that point.    This
change has been made necessary   by
'the failing health of Mr. Hillier, as
he has never    fully recovered    from
the severe attack ot sickness that.he
had last summer.    Perhaps there is
not a man in Cranhrook whose   departure will    occasion more sincere
regret   than    that    of   Mr. .HUHer,
Quiet in his manner, always attend-
I ing to business,   anxious    to please
I lhe people who paid their money to
I the C. P. Rj, but   yet loyal   at all
[times to the interests of his    com-
j pany, Hr. llillier gradually grew in-
t to the hearts of the people who knew
him best, and now that he is   going
away the business     men and others
I begin to realize how    badly he will
I he missed.    Mr. Hillier is one ofi tho
I most competent men in the railroad
j business tn Western   Canada and tho
'Herald can only wish blm, first   Improved health, and    second, all    tbe
success ami  prosperity  that a   man
of his ability  is entitled  to.

TWO MEN KILLED,
Yesterday morning a young    mnn
named William    Kelly,   employed hy
.the Porto Rico Lumher company at
Moyie,   was    working   in   the bush
| where thc men were falling trees. A
j tree was cut and   thc usual warning
given.     The tree in tailing struck a
dead one near by, which split and a
i large piece nf the trunk flew through
the air and struck Kelly, killing him
instantly.     Coroner Mallandaine was
called down   there hut decided under
the circumstances that there was no
need of an inquest.      The Co-Operative Stores   undertaking rooms were
I notified and   gave the   deceased    the
!necessary attention.    The young man
was   about   twenty-one years ot age
and came from Crecdinore, Ont.
|   Lasl Monday an unknown man was
struck by the engine of the passenger
train about a half   mile from     the
station at    Erickson.     It was supposed that the man was asleep     on
[the track at the time.    He was killed instantly.

The movement to secure an ambulance lor Cranbrook is now au assured success. Already quite a sum has
heen subscribed and there Is much
uiore iu sight. Tbis movement
oue of tbe best that lias beeu
augurated in this district, as it
means rellel lor suffering humanity,
Hardly a day passes but what sume
poor lellow is brought to town lor
treatment at the St. Eugene hospital. He may have lever or he may
lie suffering with broken limbs or
crushed bones, and to sec him carried iu an open rig In all kinds ol
weather tu the hospital is not a very
Immune sight. And there arc people
taken sick in towu, both men and
women, and under existing circumstances it is rather a hard ordeal tor
them to pass through, to be carried
in an open rig to the hospital. Let
the good work go on. Cranbrook
lias long needed an ambulance and
now it will bave one if the necessary
can be raised.

HINDOO WOMEN     DRESSED    AS
MEN.
A special dcspalch to the Nelson
Daily Canadian trom Grand Forks
says that Uuptain W. Beiitley, who
bus had considerable experience
among lhc Hindoos, has just given
some rather startling information
about these people. He says tliat
fully one-third of the Hindoos here
arc women who are dressed in tho
Identical costume as the men. It
seems tliat lu nearly all cases the
women seek employment us wood
cutlets, as this particular class of
work is generally alloted to the
female Hindoos. It is also reported
that a considerable number of the
Hindoos employed in Fisher's railway camp under Timekeeper Duulop
aie also women, which accounts lor
them being better workers than the
general Hindoo.
ONE ON Mil. BUTT-IN.
A San Franciscan was talking
ahout the humorist, Jerome K.
.ierome,
"1 crossed the Atlantic with Mr.
Jerome," he said, "the last time lie
visited America. There was uu
board an information lieml—one oi
those bores with a lot ol Information on tap about everything under
Llie sun—and Mr, Jerome had a horror lor him.
As we leaned over the rail one
morning the iulormatlon liend joined
'Gentlemen,' lie said, pompously,
as he waved his hand out over the
great expanse of water, 'if the earth
were flattened out the sea would bu

CRANBROOK CUSTOMS
l-'ur the year ending the 31st October last the customs receipts nl
i'ranbrook amounted to $311,8511, a
very tidy sum of money to go to
ibu maintenance of the country from
a young city of only eight years of
ago. Cranbrook is uow rated a.s a
"port of entry," no less, a title that
suggests ships uud that world's
right uf way lhe ocean. It gives a
clue to the conditions under which
the term came to be applied lo the
lax imposed ou goods of a dutiable
nature coming from over seas which
were mainly luxuries iu the early
days uf lhe imposition of the duties.
In modem days the term has a
sweeping significance and it is almost as haul lo Iimi au article (raw
material excepted) on the tree list
us it is tu lind a dog with two
tails.
Harry While, our very capable
aud popular collector ol customs,
slates that all the machinery .shipped
in for the Kast Kooteuay Lumber
company, at Jaffray, fot the Adolphs
•it IJayui-s lake and the big Haker
mill al Waldo was cleared at Kernle.
Hud all this stuff came through our
home port thc receipts for the
current year would have been very
largely increased ami would give a
clearer idea of the progress of the
districl, since this very expensive
machinery outfit (representing iu the
aggregate well over Jioii.mui) was
i ii tended for concerns directly con-
"■riier! with Cranhrook and not, at all
with Kernie.
Like every oilier public department
in our city the customs makes a
most excellent showing highly indicative of good times and general prosperity.
should   englisSen  BRING
WIVES?
(Calgnry Trade Ga'/ell.c.)
"A Colonial," writes to the London (EfljC.) Spectator, calling attention to the fact that more men than
women emigrate to Canada, and asking that the Imperial and Colonial
governments do something lo en-
cournge the colonization of Hrilish
women along with these men in the
Dominion. The gist of his trouble
is well expressed in the following
paragraph:
"The chances are that the majority
of young bachelors from Britain will
i-tib* in those districts where whole
families from (he United Slates are
hiking up wheat lands in the Northwest, and, naturally, it follows that
lhe ypung Britisher will find his
helpmate in a woman horn under the
Stars and Stripes, and little likely
to engraft into the being of her family the traditions of a Unlled Empire. Canadian women of British
ancestry are probably even more
loyal to the British ling than arc the
women of the old land, their loyalty
to the hest traditions of English
home life is proverbial: but Canadian
women are a mere handful in that
"teat west. It is a heterogeneous
mass of womanhood from which the
l.iujlish immigrant, to-dav has to
choose."
II is wonderful how manv things a
tn.in will find to worry about if he
will look. At the present time, we
may     assume   that   every    British
desires to
lllll*    tn   tl
coming lo Cannda, who
lo so, and who is also
so under existing conditions. To induce any more to come,
jwe should have to oiler mure tempi-
lug opportunities; and there arc those
nmoiigsi    us—and     not a lew— who
Llllllk that possibly we aie coddling
Itnmigration too much as it is. The
effect of hm much assistance would
be lo bring us lhe "weaklings" and
I ihc "failures;"1 and these are precisely the sort of people whom    we
[in a new and comparatively rough
country to not require. Goncrallyi
speaking,   the     man or woman      in
i Hn t i.i in whu wants fo eome to Cannda, but wlm cannot manage to get
here with all the helps now provided, bad better Slav al  home.
I   As for the fear tlmt tho Intermar-
jrfago of these British bachelors with
American girls will lead to a national annexation, Dial is hardly
woiib the ink    it takes to record it".
(These     international     alliances    are
| gul to as nnl  to work the other wav.
I The British influence in ihc home has
nn its side existing political conditions and all the commercial nnd Industrial forces which make of our
people such well-established imperialists; bul if ii were nol fur the Intrusion of this British element, the
home made up wholly of American
sel Hers, mighl be Impervious to
these Influences. In any case, If, in
lhe long run, it does nol appear to
our people thai they will be better
off a.s British than as American, no
amount of hereditary prejudice can
keep them so; and this conviction for
or against British connection will
rest upon facts quite as apparent to
tin* German, to fhe American or to
anv other foreigner as to the son of
Old  Canada, or of Old  England.
WHAT EDITORS SAY
LACKED THK NEWSPAPER
TOUCH.
Ksfevan, Sask., Mercury: There
has got to be a change made in the
substance of the governor-general's
speech from the throne. At the
opening of parliament on 21st Inst.,
Earl Orey, in a few carefully worded
phrases, referred to his recent trip
through   the   west,   and   spoke of    the
Imppi ness a nd prosperil v of t he.
people, hut he tells us nothing ahout
how he got his eye hurt in Winnipeg, or abuut the Sunday duck shooting at Pilot .Mound, or the peculiarities of Calgary hospitality. We are
disappointed. That speech from the
throne mighl have been made really
interesting.
A CRUSHING REPLY.
Ottawa Journal: In the opinion
of The Toronto Globe "the strengthening of the law against combinations in restraint of trade i.s one of
the best features of the tariff legislation." We are inclined to remark
in the language of the street,
"Hats!" The change is worth
nothing unless the government of the
day was anxious to make thc Jaw
operative, the old law was plenty
good enough.
THEV NEED    THE MONEY.
Kingston   News:     Some are disappointed  that, the     duties were    not
lowered in the new tariff, Why
should Ihey be? Doesn't the government  want all the money it can
net'.'
HITHERTO  UNNOTICED.
Hamilton Spectator: It is to he
hoped that Hamilton has succeeded iu
attracting the attention of the government lo the fact of its existence.
\ JOLT THAT WILL WAKE
THEM UP.
Brant ford Expositor: This uprising of labor will probably teach the
Whitney government a great needed
lesson. Heretofore the members of
that government and their followers
have passed nothing to benefit the
industrial classes, and have refused
lo carry out one promise they made
—namely, to see that all convict,
made goods were labelled such. They
also made intolerable the position
of .Mr, R, rilockliug, lhe late secretary of the bureau ol lahor, thus
bringing about his resignation, If
they are not made drunken hy their
immense majority they will lose no
lime in showing activity in a direction too long  neglected.
MAIDEN TAKES IT SERIOUSLY.
Oltawa Citizen: If Sir Wilfrid's
interest iu the Georgian Bay canal
is a simple flirtation he may yet find
himself with a breach of promise
suit on his hands.
CAPITAL WILL HAVE TO BUCK
UP.
Brockville Times: There seems to
he something hoggish about recent
labor troubles in Canada, Kirst the
strikers were busy at, Buckwgfcaim
and next Ihey got active in bucking
Hamilton.
TIIE NURSERY UP-TO-DATE.
Ottawa Citizen: Tbe Guggen-
heiins will catch vou if vou don't
look out,
HELPING THE EMPIRE.
Calgary Alhertan: It is a matter
of some satisfaction that the administration which crentetl lhe British
preference and made it a factor in
the fiscal life not only of this country, hut indirectly in that of other
colonies, continues to advance in
preferential ideas. It is Willi pride
lhat Canadians can point to the decided policy of the Canadian government, which, without invitation or
much expectation of reward, comes
again to the assistance of Britain in
her greal struggle to maintain tho
'ommercia! supremacy of the world.
THE LAST HUMILIATION.
fluelph  Herald:       Not   until  Count
Bonl is refused a job shoveling snow
will he realize what a snap he    hail
as husband 1n the fioiild millions.
A BADLY SCARED OPPOSITION.
Calgary Herald: To vindicate and
ake of any use the party system of
government it is absolutely necessary that his majesty's loyal opposi.
tinn should hold an effective numerical ratio to His Majesty's government, ministers and members. When
Ihis is not the case, partVgovern-
meiit has no raison d'etre, and its
existence cannot be defended. It is
the governing party in Alberta that
wise citizens justly look for a recog
nition of this truth and fur a vindication of this time honored system
of government, through encouraging
lhe constant presence in her legislature of a strong minority of men i
loyal to the country's interests, audi
able tu see and honestly criticize
government policy, errors in which
are, obviously, not nearly so likelv
to become visible to olliee holder's
and lheir followers wul hunt this
salutary aid.
MUSKOKA'S IDEAL IS 00OD
ROADS.
Bulk's Kalis Arrow: If Andrew
Carnegie and filter mlllicimircs were
to expend their millions iu improving
the highways uf  America,  instead of
lavishing them on public libraries,'
universities and other luxurious fulls
of the rich, there would be some
chance of the money finding its way
hack to the peoplo frum whom it was
originally laken by n sort ol legalized robbery peculiar to the twentieth
century, as well as to thc latter
part of the nineteenth,
A DREADFUL THEORY.
Windsor Record: Wonder is expressed that five thousand persons
appeared to welcome Mayor Schmitz
of San Francisco, whn was indicted
for graft, but cut shorl his European
tour to "face his trnducers." The
warmth and magnitude of the welcome may only prove that there are
nt least five thousand thieves in San
Francisco.

GOODS
CHRISTMAS GIFT GOODS
THERE'S prudent forethought in doing  your Christmas   Shopping now,   while  the   goods  are   new.   stocks
complete and  values best.   A little later the assortments are smaller and the  crowds  are   larger  and   so
confusing that you cannot do that careful, thoughtful selecting that is the first element of economy.
Nearly every item in this list is  suitable for a Oift, and the saving is self-evident.
CHRISTMAS
GOODS

They are swell. We have never before shown
such an attractive line of MEN'S GLOVES. We've
Gloves for street, for driving, for church, for dress, and
lor any purpose. A gentleman needs Gloves. We'll sell
only Gloves with an established reputation.
Furs for Christmas
For a generous gift vou can't do better than give
Furs. There's nothing that will be more lasting in the
pleasure it will give. For the balance of this month all

Sure to fit. Sure "to wear well. If you get a pair of
Perrin's Kid Gloves you have the best that is sold in
Canada.   $1.25. $1.50, $2.00, and $2.50.
Men's Christmas Neckwear
The Tie has the most important role to play in a
man's make-up. Our collection is most unusual in every
respect—diversity of shapes, swellness of the'styles, brightness, and beautiful are the patterns and the richness of the

ODDS AND ENDS
(My the lleiald's Tame Englishman.)
j In thi: long winter eveaiugs when
lhe wind roves and tlie snow falls
thick on the mountains, the unlettered peasants of the Abruwi provinces
of mother Italy sit round their big
open lire places, anil while th** men
make baskets and the women spin
Ihey tisteu to old tales. Some of
these tales have been collected by
Senior de. Nino in his book "Csi e
Costunii Vbrusxesl." One of the
legends, entitled, "Why poverty is
always with us," is as follows: In
those days Our Lord and St. Peter
were wandering on the earth. One
night thej lodged in the house of an
old woman whose name was Poverty.
Poverty said to Our Lord, "t!uod
m.in, lodging I can give you, but no
food, 1 am myself dying of hunger."
Oui Lord replied, "The lodging will
be enough, give no heed to tbe rest."
si Peter's face lengthened and he
could not sleep all night. Mow can
anyone sleep on an empty Btomach?
Sn at daybreak he lose and wliis-
peied iu the ear of Poverty: "You
must know that Me who is with es
is the Masiti who woiks so many
miracles. Ask     lum foi a boon."
As Um Lold was departing Hie uld
woman came out and kneeled down
belore lum. "What du yuu waul?'
he .isKCtl. "1 ivibU," sue SAid, "tu
say Hi.it it grieves me uui lu have
been a uie iu i.i j iin-u hetuie yuu.
"Uial is uo mattei', tue luring
was suiueieut," answered uur Loru,
' uu yuu waul anything*' ' "1 have,
cunimued Hie old wuiuaii, "three
rtMls ul lanu behind this hut, anu
llierc is a pe.u tree, which every year
is laden with fruit, but the pears
ait- all slulcn belore they are ripe."
'tthat can l du?" replied Uur Loni,
"am I to stand guard uver >our pear
tree?" "Ob, no," answered Lhe uld
woman, "bui 1 wuuld that whatsoever Uiiubs up my tree should be
unable to gel down without my
leave. ' "It i.s granted unto thee,"
answered Our Lord, and went Mis
way.
'lhe    pears    were     ripening   when
Ilea th,   aroused   with   his     scythe,
c.une to ihe old woman,
i   "Poverty,     prepare     thyself,    for
thine hour has come. .'banks    be
to find," she said, "J have called
Mice many times, 1 have waited king
fm Thee and 1 come willingly. But
first do me a service. Pick "me a
pear from off that tree, I have not
lusted one for so many years."
1 Death climbed the tree and could
not come down again, and Poverty
laughed at Him. Then Death said,
that everything depended on the old
woman, and began to pray to her as
to a saint. Hut she turned a deaf
ear, so that Death remained as one
bound to the tree for vears and
years.
Meanwhile, the population increased beyond all measure. No vonder,
for no new horn babe diel, old
people dreamed of Mcthu ■ .lem, and
the yearly crops no longer sutltced,
All this time Death could not move,
and at lasf be began to treat with
Poverty. "II thou wilt let me .'ome
down I swear that I will never
touch thee." jThou hast sworn?M
she asked. "Then be free." And
death descended and began his usual
slaughter, Hul he never c.imu mar
the old woman Poverty, atel that is
whv we have poverty ever with u£.
Prettv little legend, 'isn't It?
I It is strange that iiltlnum Poverty is always with ns, sometimes
fortune takes a turn in the rn >si extraordinary and unaccountable manner.
■ Tlie story comes from Nevada telling the strange ease of a man who
,traded an old horse for a handful of
mining stock, which now makes lum
rich. This recalls the thousand and
one instances of the marvelous turns
that the wheel of fortune has made
in the great west.
i The instance just cited might well
be true, whether it is or not. Tliere
are thousands of others beyond a
shadow of a doubt, wliich are even
stranger than this is. The wheel
of fortune is always turning.
t The. telling of these wonderful
tales depicting the unaccountable
freaks of fortune's wheel invariably
carries a moral with them in addition to being highly entertaining.
They not only serve to prove tliat a
man should never despair as long
as he has a leg to go on, but that
his chance may come, even after he
has lost tbe leg. At the time that
the gentleman in Nevada made the
trade it would be hard to say which
had the best of the deal, but time
showed that it was a horse on tiie
man who gave up the mining stock.
All is fair in a trade as iu love aud
Wiir, however, and it only goes to
prove that Hiehard the third was
not the only ui.ui who wanted to
give a kingdom for a horse.
I It should not be understood from
the above that men wbo own horses
valued at anything over six bits, are
advised lo make a practice of trading them for mining stock in a
thoughtless and promiscuous manner. All mining stocks are not assets Hiat can be counted on to ultimately bring fortunes to their owners. As a matter of (act there are
thousands of reams of milling stocks
on the market to-day, besides those
that are shoved inlo pigeon holes
and roll-top desks anil bidden away
in old trunks, a ship luad ol which
would not he worth enough to buy
a breakfast for a snow bird.
Dm let us take our chances trying,
never to be over-foolish or over-wise.
Never despair. The wheel of fortune is whirling, whirling day and
night, always. Some, time it may
stop at the place where you have
placed your two hit piece. Oo
ahead, keep plugging along, and good
luck to you.
