THE VICTIMS    Oh' THE LARCH-
MOST DISASTER SWEPT
ASHORE   FROZEN
SOLID.
Black Island, R. L, Feb. 13.-Thc
recovering nl the bodies ol tlio victims ol the steamer Lurclimont,
which sunk in collision with the ttireu
masted schooner Harry Knowlton,
hit* Monday ninUt, in Block island
sound, proceeded slowly and with
difficulty along Mie icy shores of the
Island, during the night and curly
part ol to-day, owing to the darkness. l'|i to 8 o'clock this morning,
however, 51 bodies hud been gathered
in by the coast patrols and vessels
sent lo the scene. This list ol survivors still stood at 19. Identifications have been made ol five more up
to daylight, bringing the number ol
identified dead up to eleven.
Purser Oscar Young, ol Providence,
still maintained to-tlay that there
were 135 or -151) passengers on hoard
tne steamer when she left Providence
lot New York, and most ol the sur-
vlvurs who were able to express an
opinion were inclined to support hit
figures, rattier than those of Captain
(1. VV. McVey, of the Larchmont,
who estimated the number ot passengers al Irom 50 to 75. From
some of the surviving officers, it was
learned that the Larchmont carried a
crew of 40 men, of whom only ten
are accounted lor. This means that
out of a total ot from 150 to 200
persons on hoard the Larchmont,
nine passengers and ten sailors have
survived. Their condition is pitiable, but the two physicians who
had been in almost constant attendance upon the sullnrcrs expressed confidence early to-day that none of the
rescued was likely to succumb.
One ot the ship's officem stated
that tbe Larchmont carried eight
lileboats and four rafts. At 8
o'clock it was believed that five ol
these boats hail been accounted lor
and one raft. The survivors number
only two women, Mrs. Harris Fchl-
n-.aii, and Miss Sadie Gallup, of lion-
ton. During the night tho coastguards from the two lite-saving stations, aided by many citizens, patrolled the beaches on the watch lor
bodies. It was difficult to locale
the corpses in the dark. In nearly
every instance they were tumbled .in
by the breakers, encased in a coffin of
ice several inches thick. In this way
they were placed on the shore, awaiting identification.
A lile-l'aft, with seven bodies, was
picked up yesterdav bv tlie schooner
Clara E., ol this port, after a cruise
along the coast. A piece ot the altev-
deeki of the steamer was picked up.
Mr. and Mrs. Fcldliam and a dead
man were all that remained ol sixteen who had sought refuge on the
trail support. Little hope was felt
that the occupants of the missing
lifeboats and rafts had survived the
fearful cold, which find moderated,
but Blight!? during the night.
The grim' pictures of horror painted
hy tbe survivors were relieved by
touches of heroism and self-sacrifice
on the part of thp crew and some of
the passengers. Nearly all the surviving passengers interviewed agree
that the crew and officers behaved
well. With the first shock- and the
inrush of water and escape ot steam
from the broken main stenmpipe.
Captain Me Vet v rraliwd the scope ol
the accident. The crew were called
to quarters, each man sprung to his
station, as the call to desert the ship
was given. Panic-stricken passengers, aroused from sound sleep, rushed wildly on ilcck and mobbed the
boats and raftsmen, women fighting
each other fearfully, forgetful of all
except tlie primal instnnct to save
one's self. The crew fought of! the
crowd Tcsolutcly, though hard pressed, and provided lor the women and
children first, Some of Ihe male
passengers recovered from their first
fright anil assisted in the work.
Many never reached the deck. They
were RufFnca-tcd li.Tow in their quartets by the steam, nr drowned like
rats in a trap beneath the deck.
Within ten minutes the boats were
away from the ship's side, just as
she settled low in the water, with
waves dashing over her nnd flooding
every available foothold.
Cold and high seas completed the
work ol destruction, and the little
hand of persons who got away trom
the Larchmont wns In groups. In
tbe helpless drift in the hitter cold it
became the old story ol the "survival of the fittost."
Nineteen are known to have survived, eleven arc among the dead,
fheir bodies having been identified,
and 95 are missing. OI the identified,
dead, seven are members ot the
crew and four passengers. Ol the
surviving ten are members ol the
crew and nine passengers. Twelve
of the missing are members ol the
crew ami eighty-three are passengers,
Purser Young can tell only a disjointed story. He was below in his
room with his assistant. William
Carroll, going over the freight bills,
when the shock came, lie hurried to
the deck, only tn he caught tn the
indescribable contusion. Seeing that
he could do but llltlc, he ran below
again to find nearly all the rooms
and Ihe saloon filled with steam from
the boilers. Passengers rushed out
ol their state rooms hnlt dressed, or
witb only their night clothes on. Tbe
water was rising rnpidly and soon
the beds on Ihe saloon deck wore
afloat. Young again rushed up on
deck. The rising water caught
manv of the passengers, who were
unable to force their way up the
already crowded stairs.
Some who could swln survived till
the water reached the ceiling. Others
perlshl-d with the first Inrush of
water.
Newspaper men rarely have encountered such difficulty In getting a
eonneeted story of the horror. The
minds of the survivors were affected
hv the privations and terrible scenes.
Their strength was not equal to the
wnrk nt gathering ideas to express
Hie eitent ol the tragedy. Their
own peril obliterated itll uiespcctivc

COST OF THAW TRIAL.
New York, Feb. lO.-Wheu the
Thaw trial is. ended how will the
Thaw fortune fare'.' What will the
expense be'.' Mure than that of any
murder trial that has ever taken
place lu New York.
Never hei ore iu the court annals ol
this city has such an expensive array of legal talent been gathered together in a criminal case. It is expensive nut only on account of ability, but because uf the disposition ot
Lhc Thaw family io throw open the
doors uf their money vaults aud "go
the limit" for the defence of the man
ou trial.
The Thaw for tune, according to
Pittsburg estimates, is about $40,-
uuu.uiw. All the tremendous
strength of Ibis lur tune has been
thrown into the battle to save Harry
K. Thaw from the death chair.
Taken iu its entirety the Thaw
trial will cost more than $300,000.
This may be divided approximately
as follows:
Lawyers, $200,000; out-of-town detectives, $50,000; preparation of case
ami incidentals, $!>u,000.
Of course tills amount is only a
fraction of the annual income of the
Thaw family.
There has been considerable speculation us lo the cost of the trial
to the County ot New York, and
many wild guesses have been made.
In order to settle the matter for
good and all, ligures have been obtained in the district attorney's office that show Hie total cost of the
trial for the country will be somewhere between $10,000 aud $15,000,
exceedingly low figure when all
circumstances are considered. Tbe
tecs ot medical experts will make
more than tiie total amount. The
two trials of Roland Molineux put
the county to uu expense of upward
of $70,utHJ and it cost $5u,0u0 to convict Albert T. Patrick.
In both trials of Molineux and
Patrick many medical experts were
employed, and experts are luxuries.
In the Thaw three medical experts
are lined up with the prosecution,
they are Drs. Flint, MacDonald and
Matson.
These experts receive a compensation dependent on their appearance in
court. They are paid $100 a day tor
every day they attend the sessions.
New York, Feb. 14.—Another tragic
chapter iu the history of the Thaw-
Whito case was written to-day, when
grim death brought the famous trial
to a halt in its fourth week. The
wife of juror No. 11, Mrs. Joseph
Bolton, passed away this afternoon
soon after her husband had reached
her bedside. He had been summoned
trom the court room, where the
trial had been in progress tor less
than 15 minutes. The formal announcement of Mrs. Bolton's death
was made in court shortly after 2
p.m., the hour set for the afternoon
session, and Justice Fitzgerald immediately ordered an adjournment
of the ease until Monday. The court
also ordered, with the consent of
counsel that the other eleven jurors
he given their liberty und no longer
he held together. He admonished
them to be guided by their honor and
their oath aud not to lead the newspapers or discuss the Thaw case with
anybody.
Dr. Button D. Evans, superintendent ol ihe New Jersey state hospital
(or the insane, was recalled us un
alienist to continue his direct examination. The witness was asked
to detail the conversation he lud had
ou various occasions with Thaw in
tbe Tombs. He hud already declared these conversations to be an essential feature in his conclusion that
Thaw was of unsound mind at thi
time of the doctor's first three visits
to him, the last being on September
22. Mr. Jerome had withdrawn his
objections to the statement by Thaw
going "Into the evidence and Dr.
Evans was about to detail the events
of his fust visit on August I, whim
the summons for juror Bolton came.

nouncemcut   yesterday
nf tlie Intent lo
i nf the government to
Introdueo n m
nisiirc '" Improve   the
government   i
f     Ireland,   Augustine
Birrell, chief
secretary for Ireland,
gave formal m
lite today thai a hill
"lo estiihlisti
an Irish council    and
for other   pur
oses   connected thoro-
with," will be
hitroduced.    Thus the
Liberal     govci
mit'iii is   keeping    its
promise to the Nationalists to place
Irish legislation to the forefront of
the present session of parliament.
The bill, although -ill the -details have
not yet been made public, will provide for a council in which the elective element will predominate, A
miiiibvi ol nominative members are
retained, In order to placate the
Liberals, who are opposed to an entirely representative body. it is
iimloi'&taod also thai this council
will have extensive administrative
powers, but its light to legislate will
be limited. This feature lias tieen
nccepted hy the Irish leaders. Nothing definite is known as to the
amount of financial control to he entrusted to the council, but to satisfy
Irishmen this will have io be large,
There is no doubt that the powers
centered in nuinernus boards eon-
trolling the administration of Ireland
will be handed over to the council.
Speaking In the bouse this evening
Mr. Birrell said the question of restoration ot evicted tenants to their
homes was one of primary Importance and that it brooked ot JiO delay,
lie pledged the government to take
effective- measures to obtain the reinstatement of evicted tenants.
LARSON is MUCH ALIVE.
Peter Larson, the Montana multimillionaire mining man, is dead
ugaln, according to the New York
Sun, which recently published a long
nbiliia-ty under a Helena date line.
Over in Idaho tho papers are "cribbing" the obituary Irom the Sun,
and it is possible that by ibis time
Mr. Larson has heard of his death.
Il is not every man who enjoys the
privilege o! reading his own obituary
twice, ami a different one each time.
Mr. Larson died three years ago,
according to newspaper accounts
published at that time, but later In
appeared in comparatively good
health in Helena, and made no claim
to having been miraculously restored
to life. At that time he had gone
to Minneapolis to submit to a surgical operation, which some of the
newspapers took for granted would
have fatal results.
Just what the occasion of Mr,

BORN IN CARS.
New York Feb. 18.-There fluttered over Manhattan yesterday morning-
a hurried pair of storks. One followed a Third avenue train which
Mrs. Jennie Tonaovec had boarded
near her home at No. 113 East 107th

CHANCES OF MARRIAGE.
THE WAITRESS HAS THE BEST
OPPORTUNITY TO
PLEASE MAN.
(Chicago Tribune.)
Of all the girls who work for their
living in Chicago the waitresses arc
conceded to have the best chance of
winning a husband. This exemplifies
the old rule that the way to a man's
heart is through his stomach, and a
study of marriage statistics will reveal that (hose who stand aud serve
don't have lung lo wait—for a husband. Miss George Teeters, president of the Waitresses' union, says
that 1,500 girls arc employed in the
restaurants of Chicago, ami of this
number she says about .'.00 are married every year.
When a pretty Utile waitress once
gets her eye mi a man she thinks she
could look upon as au asset she begins her campaign against his heartt
by working up a standing with the
chef. Her first move is to inform
that functionary that a particular
friend of hers is waiting for bis meal
anil that she would consider it a
great personal favor if a little extra
care were bestowed on Hie dishes he
had ordered. This done, she sees
that the table chilli on his table is
clean and neat and that, lie is given a
fresh, clean nnpkln, All his dishes
are scrutinized carefully and his silver is placed before him iu a spotless
condition.
She then brings into play her battery of bacon nml eggs, fried to a
turn. A dish of apple sauce, placed
before linn with her own dainty little
hand, has a disastrous effect, creamed just to his laste, drives him to thu
trenches of satisfaction ami contentment. Bv the time she brings him
a nice piece of pie, which she has
saved especially for him, and which
does not look as though it had been
slept on bv the took, like the average restaurant pie, he is ready lo
listen to her terms of surrender. No
man, in the opinion of those who
have studied the question, can long
resist such treatment, and if the
waitress happens to he pretty, he
cannot resist it at all,
Tbe stenographers, with their higher salaries and their opportunities for
intomacy with those who employ/
them, generally are supposed to have
the best chance for marriages, but
this is not so. Strange as it may
seem, the girls who heat out their
living on typewriters are less Inclined to marriage than any other class
of girls, and they explain this iu a
way that ought to knock the conceit
out of certain eligible young men
who spend their lime wondering what!
girl will he lucky enough to marry
them.
"The stenographer," says Miss Al,
B. Cleveland, secretary ol the Business Woman's exchange", "has an opportunity to see men as thev are during the week days. The week day
man and the Sunday night man are
two different propositions, as all
stenographers find out, and it is the
opinion of many of them that life
with llie average week day man
would be unbearable. On Sunday
night the average man is not a bad
sort of a creature. He usually bus
a box of flowers'under bis arm or a
couple of theater tickets in bis
pocket. His voice is soft and low
and never, to hear tiim tell it, did he
ever love anybody hut Susan herself.
Susan listens to this sort of talk and1
th-1!! concludes that she is the luckiest of mortals. At midnight or,
thereafter, when the Sunday night
man takis bis leave, Susan hangs on
to his co.it lapel as he stands iu the
hall and dreads to think of tbe whole
week that must pass before the next
Sunday night.
"On Monday, and the five days following, the Sunday night man has
undergone a change. He is then tbe
business man. Then is his time lo
lie and cheat and compromise with
liis conscience. Then he is revealed
in his true colors, and his stenographer, above nil others, is given a
elmnce to see the creature as he really is. Few men can go through a
week of business strife without falling from the high ideal on which
stenographers, in their mind's eye,
set all men oriejlnally, and that is Ui«
reason such girls less frequently are
married than their sisters in "other
walks of life. It isn't a lack of opportunities. It's a refusal to accept
them."
Miss Cleveland is in a position to
know the sentiments of stenographers. The Business Woman's exchange is a clearing house for girls
who make their living by that
method, and it is her belief that
tliese girls look upon marriage as a
last resort rather than a chance to
better their condition in life.
The girls who work as trained nurses have good chances to win husbands. When a man is injured or ill
and goes to a hospital for treatment
bis attention is centered tor the
time being on Hie young woman who
takes care of him. The home instinct is strong in all men, and when
they find themselves bandaged ami
poulticed and cared tor it makes them
think of home and mother. From
this it isn't a long graduation lo
that often imagined home of their
own, and it is remarkable bow jjiiick-
ly this thought leads to the identification of the young woman who is
altending their immediate wants with
that dreamed of home. Her touch
is so soft and her voice is so soothing. The skill with which she hinds
the wounds and drive,-: away the cares,
of the sick room is consummate,
What qlcer than to have her with
him always? A home with her as
its mistress' would he heaven itself.
A man first of all is an animal and
Ihr women who attend his animal
wants are the ones witb whom he
first associates a dual existence. Is
a man's first sweetheart some <»tltfr-
eal beauty that was raiser] on chocolate and bon bons? Not much—-It
was his mother, who fed him nml
darned his socks and put the poultice
on his foot when he had the stone
bruise.
Shop girls have no more than an
average chance to win a husband. If
they are good looking and attractive
they mav win out. but without those
qualifications there is no more thnn
the ordinary hope for them. School
teat-hfrs have the fewesl cluinc-es to
marry of all working cirls. Super-
intenden-t Contpy accounts Tor this bv
the fact that school teachers invariably are associated with scolding,
nntf no man. the superintendent says,
liken to contemplate a future existence in which scolding is to play a
part.     Beside* that, school teachers
are more or less isolated from men,
and that has a tendency to lessen
their chances of matrimony.
Regarding lhc chances of other
working girls, authorities difftr Girls
in shops, stores, factories, and in the
skilled trades have varying opportunities tti wiu a husband, but they
all admit the greater chance afforded
tTie girls who look work as waitresses.

SMUGGLERS CAUGHT.
BY  MEANS     OF     X-RAY EQUIPMENT—DETAILED   STATEMENT OF  INTERESTING  EXPERIMENT.
The proposal to delect smuggled
articles, whether on the person of Uiu
smuggler, or in packages, by means
of the Roentgen ray, was made several years ago. It is now learned
that this plan has bad a successful
trial by the French government. 'Hie
system employed is that of Adolpbe
Lc Roux.
The plan is to have every passeugvit
ou board a vessel trom u foreign port
pass in flout of the x-ray apparatus
and subject himself to a thorough examination, lu this way smuggled
articles concealed auywk'tc aboub
the person can be instantly detected.
As it is not necessary to remove any
of the clothing, the passengers are
caused absolutely no aiiuoyauce, and
.us all are treat til alike they suffer no
indignity by bring obliged to stand
iu front of that searching, penetrating, little x-ray machine. The process is quick and the expense is more
than counterbalanced by the cutting
down of tbe number ot customhouse
officials. One man can examine all
lhc ships that come lo port in a day,
and there is no paticnce-lryiug delay.
In the trial mention iu; persons
were examined iu 15 minutes, and oil
them were found jewels aud merchandise hidden for the occasion.
Watches were discovered sewed in
the lining of one Plan's coat. In the
hem of a woman's skirt were found
the rings put there to test the system. A liny jeweled locket was revealed bidden in a young man's
mouth, underneath his lungue, while
under the coils of a woman's hair the
x-ray showed quite plainly several
watch chains -and a bracelet, Another
"smuggler" carried several card-
cases spread oul flat against his
feet. Right through his shoes and
stockings the x-ray penetrated, and
the clasps on the cardcase:> stood out
good and clear to the eye of the examiner. Tbe buttons ' un several
pairs of gloves betrayed their presence next to the skin, somewhere in
lhc region of the heart, of a French
official who tried to fool the litjje
machine by wrapping each glove up
first in linen and then in tisuue paper.
The x-ray saw through his deception
immediately. Ho was accused of
"carrying concealed buttons which
wen? perhaps attached to some dutiable articles." He confessed like a
man and the x-ray received another
good mark as a detective. Headed
by Mr. Le Roux (the outsiders gathered together for the examination
being dismissed) the officials tramped
over to tbe post ollice with their x-
liiy machine, and there proceeded to
pry into envelops and packages without removing Haps or strings. All
sorts of foreign articles were found
hidden in innocent places,
With every country using the
x-ray at the custom bouse and post
office, smuggling would soon cease,
for there seems to be no way to fool
this little agent, Every means of
baffling it were tried at Mr. Le
Roux's test. Articles were wrapped
in many thicknesses of paper and
woolen fabrics, and they were hidden
in all sorts of queer places, but once
the x-ray got busy they might jut*t
as well have shouted out their whereabouts, for not a single hidden
article escaped detection.—Literary
Digest.
EN ROUTE.
Secretary Root was once making
the journey from New York to Washington when he came across an old
friend in the train.
They went into the dining car together and, after the ovsters, the
friend suggested some wine, saying:
'ion know this meal is 'on' me"
"Oh, no, it isn't," replied the secretary, smiling. "Wc are dining 'in
Root' (en route)."-Ex.
AUNT EMMA'S PHILOSOPHY
Aunt Emma was an old-fashioned
darky, of the ante-bellum school. But
she Was unique in    many ways, hav-
ng a high conception of honor ol a
kind and being withal extremely witty on all occasions. She was thoroughly outspoken, and took advantage of her age to "butt in" on any
conversation, no matter by whom it
was carried on. On one occasion,
I remember to have been rep-Biing
»ne of Schiller's beautiful little
poems in German, and later was repeating the Lord's piaver in the
same language .when i was interrupted by Aunt Emma demanding
what I was saying. "I was only repeating the Lord's Prayer in German, Aunt Emma." "Well! Maybe
de Lord knows what you's a-talkin'
hout I don't, J doubts it though,
hut lemine tell you one ting right
now; don t you come round here ask-
en me for something in no sich cr
way as dat."—Ex.

"VERY LOW."
On one nmicnsion, I overheard the
hidy pf the bouse giving some good
Christian advice and consolation to
another servant who hud been "very
low for several weeks, and telling
Her not to be discouraged, as such
misfortunes will come to all ol us,
ami that she herself would help her,
iind that she ought to look to tho
great ami infinite God who would
help and	
"Ain't no use a-talking 'bout that,
Miss Mary, it's all bosh. Ain't I
done sperienccd loo much? Didn't
my ole man lie down in his bed yonder for live solid years sick on his
back, and I had to work my Iool
self to death tryin' to keep me an*
him both a-going. It just got so
bad till I snid if de Lord didn't -soma
ami take him soon, He might just as
well come git both of us. Then all
your friends ud come in and tell you
hit wasn't goin' lo last much longer,
and toiput your trust in de Lord. No
sirree, they kept on lellin' me that
sort o' stuff till it got right rancid,
and I snid, 'Oh, dc debit, IV done
got tired of dat.' But thank de Lord
he did. come take him in a tow weeks,
and 1'se been getting on pretty well
ever since."—Ex,

APPRECIATION.
Appreciation is one ot the Christ-
liku* emotions of the human heart. To
look at motives and nol ut results is
the right thing lo do. How often
the best laid plans lead to failure. A
word of appreciation has led many a
discouraged heart lo pick up the broken threads and weave them into a
new web after they had lain among
tattered ideals for months or years.
Kind words bring memories thai echo
through the years long alter the lips
that uttered them have crumbled 10
dust. Children carry the memory ul
words of appreciation with them
through childhood and ofteu recall
them in old age when enveloped 111
the shadows of life. They ale like
the perfume ot the violet that lifts
its head above the spring snows and
whispers to them of ihe sunshine.
Money cannot buy, intellect cannot
create so rare a gem as true kindness. It is a heart product and
needs the Urndercst culture. It is
killed by Indifference and enfeebled by
neglect.
Wtiile ltobert (J. lfigersol made for
himself a legion of enemies hy his attack-; upon Christianity, all must admire his e-lmpieniT. Nu man in
America could mure beautifully frame
a sentence, and his eloquent remarks at the grave oi his brother
lead one to doubt if the great liilidel
was half so bad as his own words,
at times, pictured him to be. A
man who uttered so many beautiful
things had but little loom in his
heart tor atheism with its cold, revolting, heathenism teachings. In a
symposium on woman. Col. Hubert
U, Ingeisol was nailed 10 contribute
bis views.     He replied as follows:
•li takes .1 hundred men to make
an encampment, hut one woman can
make a home. 1 not only admire
women as the most beautiful object
ever create-.!, but 1 reverence her as
the redeemed glory ot humanity, tho
sanctuary ol all virtues, the pledge
ot all perfect qualities of heart and
head. It is because women are so
much better Hum men thai their
[anils arc considered greater. The
one thing in this world that is constant, the only peak that rises above
the clouds, tbe one window In which
the light burns forever, the one Star
that darkness cannot quench, is
woman's love. It rises to the
greatest heights, it sinks to the
lowest depths, it forgives the most;
cruel injuries A woman's love is
the perfume ot the earth. This is
the real love that subdues the earth;
the love that has wrought all
miracles of art; that, gives us music
all the way from the cradle song to
the grand closing symphony that
bears the soul away on wings ol tire.
A love that is greater than power,
sweeter that) lite and stronger than
death."
I.IKK IS WHAT WE MAKE IT.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox has faithtulW
expressed n common truth in a little
poem entitled "Companionship," commencing:
"Laugh and the world laughs   with
yo>
Weep and you weep alone.
Kor the sad old carih must borrow
its mirth,
Hut has trouble enough of its own.
"Sing and tbe hills will answer;
Sigh and it is lost in the air;
The echoes hound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care."
One of the first ami hardest lessons
which the novice has to learn upon
entering the great busy world of toil
and tumult is that tbe rushing,
struggling, striving public has no
interest in the grief ot uny individual.
It is too fully occupied with its own
advancement to spend a thought or a
care on what does not concern or
eBret its welfare.
When we come to investigate we
will find that trouble is universal ami
is more equally meted out than we
suppose. It comes to us all In one
form or another, sometimes in disguise, but It is the same ugly spectre
when the mask is thrown aside.
Every heart has Its own burden
which wealth cannot lighten, nor
honor alleviate. It may be tn the
hidden depths, unseen hy human eyes,
but it is there nevertheless, and will
be until the spirit throws off this
"mortal evil" and leaves it behind
with its enrthlv tenement. The
only difference is that one has the
moral courage to mi0 or overcome1
or else submit . bravely to the inevitable, while the other makes
into which the tide of i-ircumstuncus
bas     placed      ll,   but      Wastes       the
Btreugth, which, if properly exerted
would put 11 on ns feet, iu vain
regrets and useless repining.
Whatever yom trials and disappointments, keep them to yourself;
they only worry your friends and
vex those who have no claim upon
your cunlideuces Keep a bright
fact'^ a cheerful word and a
hopeful heart. Carry in your healing the dignity of self-esteem und
let the air of prosperity fit you like a
garment. Extend io the tvuild a
cordial hand, and remember that lite
is for the most part what we make
it.

Good roads are necessary for tbe
development of tbe couuiry. The
Craubrook district needs good roads.
Correspondence for the Herald
must be signed by the writer's name,
not for publicatiou but for the
information of tbe editor.
The Craubrook Herald laments tbat
this is tbe hardest winter llritisb Columbia has experienced iu forty
years. Being ou the Liberal side uf
the bouse our contemporary can
speak feelingly, says the Calgary,
Herald. As our friend Young is on
the Conservative side of the house,
we might inquire bow about the
winter iu Alberta, where it takes a
search wanaut to find a Conservative in tbe legislature.
The city council of Itaymond, Alberta, opens its sessions witb prayer, A city council might do worse
things than tbat.
Watch the Herald's circulation
grow.
And now tbe Conservative press of
B. C.j are booming Kicbard McBride tor leader of the tory party in
Uie Dominion bouse. This is carrying a joke too far.
The Herald, in dealing with political questions, has always cudeavured
to be fair and broad-minded. After
tlie dose of tbe recent provincial
campaign and the endorsement of the
McBride government by a handsome
majority, the Herald freely statwi
that Mr, MeBride would receive its
support iu any movement that was
calculated to benefit tlie province aud
the people, since the Herald has always maintained tbat the welfare of
the people a.s a whole was of far
mote importance than the success of
any political party or tbe political
ambition of any individual. Tbe
editorial dealing with this question
has brought forth some comment
from other newspapers, that express
their opinion on the stand taken by
the Herald. The Nelson Canadian,
strongly Conservative, and an en-
Ih un las tic supporter of Mr. McBride
during the campaign, says in its issue or the Uth:
Ihe Cranbrook Herald made a
hard fight both tor its candidate,
Dr. King, and tbe Liberal party,
It won for Its candidate but lost"
lor its party, both of which
results were not unexpected even
by the Herald. Now that It is
over the Herald takes a position
which, if its example be followed
by tbe press throughout the
province, wilt go a long way to
hasten the day when British Columbia will stand first iu the
splendid galaxy ol federated sections.
The Lethbridge (Alberta) Herald,
an independent paper, has the following:
The Cranbrook Herald is to be
commended on the attitude it
takes towards the McBride government iu British Columbia. The
Herald supported the Liberal
party in the recent campaign
with vigor and ability, but as
soon as lite battle was over, the
"Old Man" admits defeat lit* a
man and talks such good sense as
the following: The Herald desires to say at this time that in
all matters that aie for the advancement of the province as a
whole, Mr. MeBridu will receive
its support. The Herald stands
for British Columbia and for the
Cranbrook district. It believes
that the progress of the province
ami the district is of far more importance than the political ad-
vaneemeut of any parly or any individual. Mr. McBride will not
liud the Herald a carping critic,
but ou the coutrary he will rind
the Herald standing up for all
that is good for the province, all
that promises prosperity, all that
will aid the individual and the
peu|ile as a whole. Tbat is the
llerald's position in politics. It
has no complaints to make, no
sores to heal.
Old Man Simpson, iu the Craubrook    Herald, says   he favors a
Mr.  Thompson as   the  Conservative   candidate   iu the   next provincial election.     Dues this mean
that lie considers he will be    au
easy mark?—Lethbridge Herald.
Not by any means.    Mi. Thompson
has    been a valiant   worlder fur   the
Conservative cause, he devoted    his
time to  the   success of  the Conservative   candidate   iu    the last    two
campaigns, ul a great personal sacri-
lice, hv has   carried   the burden     ul
organization of the   party    iu   this
district upon bis shoulders, and is  a
politician   by training    aud instinct
Why     then should   he    not have   a
chance at the    honors and the   llesli
pots?     In making tbe suggestion We
only bad iu mind a fair deal for Mr.
Thompson.
Frank Oliver did the right thing
when be issued that humane order
permitting homesteaders to leave
their homesteads until May 1st, uml
granting the western settlers the
privilege of cutting timber ou guv
eminent lands for fuel. Oliver is a
western man, a practical man and a
man of bard sense. That is why.
even in a government of red tape, he
will win witb bis blunt manners and
good judgment.
Where is Joe Martin?
A laundry in Lethbridge has proven
a failure. No wonder. Hang a
shirt or auy other article of lingerie
on the line for live minutes when the
wind is blowing iu that town, aud
it will become as white as the driven
snow und as free from dirt as the
saactiiied soul of an archangel. No
man iu Lethbridge -thinks of chasing;
his hat when it blows off. He
simply turns around and waits until
another good one comes along. Thai
wind, ladened with the warmth ot
southern suns, has blown prosperity
to Lethbridge, and made it the attractive winter resort of Sunny Alberta, It has blown away bad reputations and wrestled hard with
good ones. It has blown the town
full of energy and hope, filling the
people with a realization of the great
future of the place. It is blowing
new railroads and new industries into the town. It is blowing the
dust and cobwebs out of some of the
stores, and blowing in modern equipments and modern ideas. It is a
great wind, and the people will not
mourn the failure of the laundry so
long as that wind keeps on blowing.
We were thanked last week tor a
kind word said. We are so accustomed to befcg cussed that the
change threatened us with heart disease.
.lames Fraser came down from the
Windermere country last week to arrange for the sale of his Easter
strawberries. tie says that he
shovelled the snow off the plants and
found them blossoming in fine shape.
Eraser's strawberries, like our
bananas, show what a great country
this is.
"There is so much had in the best of

Kverybody who knows fl'om Taylor,
of Revelstoke, will be pleased to
learn of his elevation to the position
of provincial secretary. "Tom," as
he is familiarly called, is popular
with both sides of the house, he has
lost what money he hud fighting in
politics, and this recognition will
meet the approval of his many
friends all over the province.
A narrow, contracted mind, can
never understand a liberal, broad-
minded declaration. That is why a
hide-hound, partisan organ is alwavs
non-plussed when it sees evidence of
fairness on the part of any other
newspaper.
The Herald is still Independent—
that is. free to follow any policy it
deems best for Cranbrook nnd the
country.
Say, Mr. Advertiser, if you wish
to fully appreciate tbe fact that you
are getting tbe worth of your money
hy advertising in the Herald, drop in
the office and look over the subscription list. And, by the way, just
stop a moment and figure out ff
there is any other weekly paper in
the province making such an offer to
you. And yet you have the right
to know. You pay the money for
the advertising and you should know
whether 11W people or 10uu have the
opportunity to read that ad. that
you pay for. That is a straight
business proposition. If you paid
tor a ton of potatoes you would wantf
io know if the full tou was delivered. If you paid for one dozen socks
you would want to know if you reived the full dozen- And so on iu
every business deal that you make.
In every case where you pay for
goods you waut them delivered. The
Herald delivers the goods.
There is still time to take advantr
tge of the combination offer of the
Dully Free Press uf Winnipeg aud tho
Cranbrook Herald, fur 13.25'for   one
year.

Dogs as a means of transportation
in tlie far uorth are iu demand, says

The Herald is busy, but it is never

Hams Horn is not a paper devoted

We have seen a lot of men in this

Cranbrook will continue to go ahead

Stock is going up in Alberta. This
is uot due to the cow jumping over

When you see a good thing, boost

things.
The Manitoba election will'be one

Mayor Fiulay has gone to Spokane

It will make the heart of anv
Cranbrook advertiser glad to look
i over the subscription list of the
Herald. You have that right, as
you pay your money for advertising.
There are mighty few weekly papers
in Canada, however, that will grant
the advertiser that privilege. Why'.'
The reason is a simple one.
The Calgary Cattle company are
selling soles. We knew they bave
been selling brains, livers, kidneys,
feet, hearts, heads, stomachs, etc.
but'did not know that they were
trading in soles until this week.
There is a movement- on foot in tlie
province to increase the salaries of
school teachers.    The move is     all
right.       Raise the salaries and elevate the standard.
The banana crop is going to be
O. K. after all.
Sunny Kootenay sounds well and is
the truth.
On the square, where Is there a
better or more prosperous town of
its size than Cranhrook?
"Newspaper men are not born but
made," has often been said, but in
British Columbia there is an exception to this rule. R. J. Clark,
for several years principal of the
high school in Nelson, felt that be
would prefer journalism to school
teaching, and secured a berth on the
Daily News. At once his articles
attracted attention. They were not
pedantic, on the contrary, they were
clear concise and interesting. And
ns Mr. Clark continued in his work
lie grew as a journalist. Later he
accepted the posit lop of city editor
Of the Nelson Tribune, where he mode
a decided hit. But it was as editor
id the Evening Tribune, during the
recent campaign that Mr. Clark
made a name for himself in British
Columbia journalism, and to-day,
although a young man, and with only
a few years experience in the work
he ranks with the leading writers of
the Dominion. The Herald will
watch the future career of Mr. Clark
with interest, and the people of Nelson have reason to feel proud of tlie
fact that his journalistic career was
started in that town.
Quality of work will win in any
business. That is why the job department r»f the Herald is always
crowded. But it takes men with the
"know how" to produce modern
work.    The Herald artists keep    up
I with the times. There Is not
new idea in typography thai they arq
not familiar with, simply because
they receive regularly each month
literature and samples ot work produced by the best printing bouses in
HILL  &  COMPANY
still continue to have their store crowded daily with purchasers anxious to take
advantage of the unparallelled reductions in prices that are offering. This
marvellous sale has developed into—
The Working Man's Bargain Opportunity
They find by a comparison of prices that their hard-earned dollar goes a
long way at our store in purchasing the necessaries of life, and they also know
that when they buy Clothing at this store, there is no question about quality

We don't like the word " bargains." They are generally more fakes than
"bargains." Good goods and an: xtremely low price are the only "bargains"
we have to offer, and another thing—it is nobody's business how little we
charge you for our goods so long as you are satisfied and we are satisfied.

those who mourn, they are stunned
With the grief and pain of loss.

the hard battle between life and
death, are over. Her friends waited
eagerly (or wolds of hope and on
Thursday many hearts went up In
thanksgiving as word came she was

mourning hearts again take up the
burden so many must bear—the loss
to them—the gain to her.

new plans are a great improvement
over the original ones submitted last

change of the main entrance from
Pellatt avenue to Cox street, as asked for, and the changes made in the
architectural design will add eight
to ten thousand dollars to the cost
of the building, but the extra convenience ami appearance of the building justifies the extra outlay.

In others, animals that were olwinns-

Mr. Collins slates that even the live

ven    mild    weather and   feed could
hardly    save them,   as those    which
have  become   so  badly  reduced     are
generally frozen    across the   fcidnevs
and     warm     weather   in such cases
would simply hasten the end.

more of the adventurous spirits who

half a century ago were not good
Story tellers. It is only of late
year's that the importance of preserving records of Western life in the
early davs has been recognized.
"Down to the' present day." declares
a writer in t|y Winnipeg Free Press,
"most interesting phases of Western
life ami Northern life have been lost
through not having been recorded.
For instance, but one or two anything like passible accounts of buffalo hunting set-in to have been written, Very few seem to have the
forethought to put on record what
Is actual.) happening to-day, and
vanishing customs ami modes ot life
almost always have to be recorded in
retrospect Some of the very best
records extant of periods of history,
records made use of by all historians,
ire simply personal diaries, jottings
of the little happenings and of the
gossip of the day, with no thought
whatever of their having any ultimate
value. Pepsy's 'Diary' and Bos-
well's 'Johnson' arc invaluable books
of this sort. In the same way, the
records kept by the Hudson's Bay
Factors at their outlying posts are
lull of the most real and valuable
historical material, Much of such
material is being gathered up and
made use of, put into living form
in history or in fiction."
The same writer refers at length
to one of the most interesting books
ever writ-ten ou Western Caiie-da indie early days. This is the volume
by Paul' Kaiie, the artist, extracts
trom which are to to, found in some
of the old Ontario public school
readers. Though pretty well for-
gotten, it contains the "story of one
of the most remarkable journeys ever
made hy a Canadian through his
native country.
Paul Kane was born in Little
York, now Toronto, in 1810, long hc-
'ore this city had laid claim to being
the Athens of Canada. After some
years spent abroad in studying art
'ie returned ami attracted the attention of Hon. G. W. Allan, of
Toronto, and Sir George Simpson,
the governor ,ot the Hudson's Bay
company, by his paintings, represent-
vtive of Indian and frontier life.
In 184-1, encouraged by these patrons, he planned an extensive West-,
m trip. In 1845 he started, but on
reaching the Sault he found he had
set out upon his adventure too late,
md was forced to return. In the
ipring of 1846 he commenced his me-
norable journey, in company with
Sir George Simpson. Kane traveled by all the slow and ardous
net-hods known in those days, right
•cross the great West, passing
hrough Fort William, Fort Garry,
■fort Edmonton and many other out-
msts, through the Oregon country,
ind on to Fort Victoria on Vancouver Island. He met with re-
narkahle adventures "buffalo-hunt*
;ng, exploring, Indians, shooting
apids, attending councils of chiefs,
miking portages, trading, putting all
bese scenes ot people and places
.-ery cleverly upon canvas, and with
nnny and careful observations in a
book."
Alter two years of wandering Kane
returned from the West in 1848, and
:et to work on his book and on the
ialmration of his sketches. He had
it tended to follow the first volume
villi another, and possibly to make
mother journey, when his eyesight
faillttl and work, either ot brush or
pen, had to be given up, The dis-
ippoint-ment of having thus to forego
vis chosen life work was very great.
Sir Daniel Wilson says or him: "My
nemory of the veteran artist is of a
gruff and moody man, embittered by
ihe sparing gratitude of a people to
whose Information and pleasures he
had sacrificed his life." Kane has
been described as the Father of Canadian Art, and a man who was "not
.in adventurer merely or an artist
seeking novelty, but a patriotic
Canadian filled with a large and
worthy idea."
Paul Kane's book called "Wanderings of an artist, among tile Indians
»f North America, from Canada to
Vancouver's island and Oregon,
through Hie Hudson's Bay company's
territory ami back again." contains a
description of a buffalo hunt, which
is probably the most realistic account ever given of the manner
which these animals were slaughtered when they roamed the prairies in
numerous herds. When he reached
Winnipeg, then Fort Garry, he found
that Un* settlement had moved west-
ward for the semi-annual buffalo
iunt just three days before his arrival. This was, however, the very
lort of thing lie had come all the
way Irom Toronto to see and engage
in, so, securing a guide, he followed
■n the wake of the five hundred carts,
the men, women, children and dogs
of the settlement. In -describing the
hunt, in which he enthusiastically
took part, lie says:
"The first day buffalo were sighted
was a day of great excitement to all
in the party. Women and children,.
i-uitc equally with the hunters, |
were eager for the slaughter, the
horses seemed keen, and the dogs
whined expectantly, even forgetting
to fight. Twenty-five were seen the
first day and for tbe next few days
only a few. At last the scouts riding back reported an immense herd of
hulls about two miles ahead. From
i rise of ground they could be seen
covering a wide expanse of plain,
scattering out, quietly feeding. It
vas contrary to the law of the tribe
n such a case for any to attack he-
lore all were ready.' For a few
ninutes there was great bustle of
•reparation. Each hunter looked to
iis girths, loaded his rifle, and filled
iis mouth with balls, so that he
might re-load while at full speed
The older hunters cautioned ' the
younger, and the chief of the hunt
gave final orders. The horses were
then walked toward the herd and had
come within 200 yards before tho
buffalo were aware of danger. Then
with a bound, they set up at a great
lumbering gallop, and the chase was
In about twenty minutes    the
such a chase was enough to lire the
most phlematic There were not
fewei than lour oi live thousand buffaloes in the herd, monstrous well-
fed animals, all bulls, not a single
ow among them. The chase lasted
bout an hour in which time about
00 carcasses lay on the prairie."

When Homer Davenport visited Turkey and the desert bordering the
uuphra-tcs last summer in search o|
,naga/iiie materia"! for the Woman's
Hume Companion, he picked up a
tribal due and .gained Iron; the incident a novel and Interesting Insight
into dug life as lound in tlie desert .
"While out walking on the evening
o( our arrival, with Hafin and Sheik
Ail," says Mr. Davenport, "I saw in
one tent a litter ol puppies. There
were lour big, husky youngsters In
the litter, and the lather and mother. The largest of the puppies,
white with black ears and a sput,
.strolled out to see us. I stooped
and petted him, whereon he fell upon
his buck ids his hccTs in the air.
He enjoyed the petting and 1 could
see him glancing back at his family
as if wishing that his prominence in
ireing noticed would be seen by the
others.
"At that time I couldn't understand all that his look meant, but I
learned later. The puppy was get-
tint; so big that his own father was
unkind lo him. He knew of the unwritten dog law of the desert tribes
which sent every male puppy forth
lo hustle for himself at a very early
age. He knew that his only salvation rested on his success in getting
some tent owner to adopt him, and
he also realized that he must find a
tent pretty soon. Only that morning his father, a hi wolf-like animal, had growled at him in a manner
ho could not mistake.
"When he heard that menacing
growl my puppy felt his hair rise
along his spine,'anil he knew that lus
strength was not vet sufficient tor
him to give battle to the old man.
lie had seen otliCl puppies fight lor
the home; lie had seen, not so many
days past, one bit* pup in the second
tent whip the father and assume
charge of the tent. 11 my puppy
had been able to speak and his words
could have been translated Into
English, 1 am sure he would luv
said something like this:
" 'Well, it's up to me to get a
hustle ou pretty ifuick ur dad will be
after me.'
"During my next stroll 1 stopped
and petted him again, and that time
we knew each other a little better
lie was still as bashful as most puppies are who haven't shed their puppy teeth, but as we finally parted I
saw him look at me with a long,
hopeful expression, and in that expression he seemed to tell me that
*ie was a youngster with a purpose its
life.
" 'My dad don't understand trie,'
he appeared to say mournfully. 'You
*now as well as me that boys generally stay home until they're twenty-one, but in my case I've cot to
get out when I'm only thirteen.
Tough, ain't it?'
"Well,   that  evening   at the  tent,
tfter the Bedouins had gone, we saw
i big   white baby head   with    black
•oft ears appear under the flap.    We
.-sat and watched   while a soft, fluffy
ody followed   the head,  and    then
we know that our puppy was returning our visit in true Bedouin     fashion."
The    puppy afteg   adopting Paven-
ort followed him across the desert
Then came the    final scene in      the
anine tragedy.
"Sheik Ali had galloped his horse
a fine Kehilan Ajuz, on a mile ahead
to the tent of his own tribe, and
presently the horsemen carr.e riding
toward us, carrying long spears. My
.attention was taken by the superb
horses—four bays, two grays and
chestnut. As we drew nearer more
people came to meet us, and the excitement was general. Near the
Sheik's tent, large and well constructed, were several Bedouins killing a sheep for dinner. All the dogs
the neighborhood were watching
the proceedings.
Suddenly, when we were about to
dismount, a number of wolf-like dogs,
big and ferocious, came tearing up to
us, and before any one could interfere, my poor puppy went down before the attack. It was over in a
moment. The tribesmen drove the
hounds away, "but only to leave, torn
and disfigured, the' youngster, my
volunteer body-guard, my puppy who
had left home lor me.
"I felt as if I could destroy all
lhc dogs of the desert for this wanton murder. To me it meant more
lhan the loss of a dog—it meant the
passing of a love that could not be
bought for money. The. affection of
i his puppy was spontaneous, and it
was mine, and although there were
no circling collars on him as he died,
lie'didn't whimper, he didn't turn his
tail, he died as he had traveled—in
Ihe shadow of the horse, and before
his master's eyes."

REORGANIZATION  OK  TORY
PARTY ON THE CARDS.
Ottawa, Feb. is.—In spite of re-
■tea i i'tl Conservat ive denials. the
story emanating from the Toronto
World to tlie effect that a change in
ihe leadership of the Conservative
party is . contemplated, will not
down. Mi. It. L. Borden laughs at
the so-called "Hugh Graham" plan
of re-organization as outlined in a
Toronto despatch. Hon. J. P.
Whitney declares'it to be an absolute
falsehood, Hut the Toronto World
still says there is a movement under
way for the reorganization of the,
opposition,
Mr. It. L. Borden, when questioned
concerning the article, said that that
was the first lie had ever heard of
lhc project. Ht* took lhc despatch
in good humor, expressing himself as
flattered hy the high value placed
upon his services,
A special despatch from Toronto
says: "It is an absolute falsehood
from top to bottom," said Premier
Whitney. "Ilng-h Graham or no one
else ever approached me, and Ihere is
no foundation whatever for such a report. There is no such scheme as
tli.it under way, at least as fnr as 1
know of."
When asked concerning Hie merits
of the re-organization, the premier
refused to discuss Hie subject. But
Hie To unit o World says it is given
lo understand that there is a movement under way that contemplates
a re-organlzatlon, the plans o[ which
air lo he discussed at the Conservative convention in to, held in Ottawa
in September.
RAILWAY NOTES.
Owing to increased traffic and to
the fact that the line irom Macleod
tu Calgary, now operated trom Calgary, will shortly be added to the
present mileage uf tin* Crows Nest
l'ass division, il bus been iouud
necessary io doubl* lliu despatching
.stall at Craubrook.
F. W. Reeves laic uf the C. P. R.
at Woodstock, Out., has joined tbe
accounting staff at Uie staliou.
Jas. Ferguson, laic of Port Arthur
and F. A. Dunn, of Fernie, have joined the train despatching staff at tho
station and will hereafter be permanently located at this place.
A. Or. Workman, telegraph operator
al the station, has been promoted to
the position of train despatclu-r, his
former position being taken by E.
F.  Peirin,  late of Macleod.
The C. V. It. has had a hard light
against the snow and cold, but it has
never suspended operations. ,
It is to be hoped that the C. P.
R. will order the plunks for widening that' platform before there is a
raise in the price of lumber.
Conductor Waller Martin has hooked for* rest, and will take a vacation
of two weeks.
HILL'S CANADIAN BOAD.
The Wall Street Journal says:
Aside from any new lines now contemplated, Hie' Hill lines have about
3,000 4jiiU-s under construction,
projected now, or completed since
the last liscal year. Of this the
most important item is the new
transcontinental road building iii
Canada. The line is now practically
lone from Vancouver through tlie
Hocky mountains. It will be pushed
ncros's the prairies of Alberta, As-
sinibola and .Manitoba to Winnipeg,
which will be the eastern terminus.
The new line will be about 500
miles long and should he .'unshed
within the next two years. This
new transcontinental road will be
owned by the Great Northern. Its
'nipnrtaiice to Ihe Hill system could
hardly be overestimated. It will be
directly competitive to the Canadian
Pacific from Winnipeg to Vancouver
md is retaliation on a gigantic scale
for the temerity witb which the Canadian Pacillc built down to Spokane.
BRAKEMAN  KILLED.
Medicine Hat Times: Yesterday,
about 11.25, when a fi eight /stopped
for the switch at Swift Current, it
was discovered that Delbert F. Finch
had fallen from the cars and been
instantly killed. When the engineer
whistled for the switch, there being
no answer, the rear brakeman went
forward and found that Finch was
nol on the train. About eight miles
hack they found his body.
It is thought he fell   between   the
rs, while going over the top. He
was only 18 years old, and had been
ten months exactly in the train service.
The body is being sent to his home
in Toronto for Interment. Services
will be held to-night (Tuesday) at
Mie home of Mr. G. Gordon, Toronto street north.
ABOUT JUNE FIRST.
THROUGH     PASSENGER      SERVICE WILL    BE   INAUGURATED ON THE CORBIN BOAD.
The people along the Crow are very
much interested iu knowing when tin
much talked ot passenger service is
to be inaugurated between St. Paul
and Spokane, via the Soo, Crow and
Corbin lines. Mr. Corbin has just
returned from a trip to Montreal anil
New York, am) in speaking of the
matter to a representative of the
Spokesman-Review, he said:
"1 took that question up with the
officials of the other road when 1
was east, and we agreed on the conclusion that it would not be wise to
put through train service into eHcel
before Juue 1, especially in view ol
the fact,that it will take Hie roads
some time to gel in shape after tbe
severities of the winter and further,
from the fact lhat, the Spokane International is an entirely new road
bed ami may naturally undergo some
changes during the lirst spring. Wc
do not want to put on a through
passenger service until we can proper,
ly maintain till schedule which will
be established.
"However, we will, in all probobil-
ity, iu tin- very near future, put ou a
local passenger service botweon Spokane am) Easlport, to connect (ot
points along the Crows Nest. The
equipment for this sorvice is already
at East port and ready Jot service at
,iuy time, hut I can not announce at
this time |ust wlien this service will
be established."
.Mr. Corbin made his trip tn Hie
east'during n   portion    of the most
severe weather of ihe winter and had
a chance to witness the struggle put
by Hie railroads to keep traffic open.
Spcnluing of the severe weather conditions, be said: "It has been the
worst winter in the northwest for
35 years, f have been pretty rami-
la r with conditions in the northwest
during that length of time, and I
have never seen a time when the
railroads have had so many difficulties to contend with."
THE    IRISHMAN'S   TESTIMONY.
An Irishman, not one of the type
represented by Burke or Eiumelt, but
of the type with which we arc more
familiar, was once about the only
witness in an Important murder rase,
and his testimony was expected by
the attorneys to.largely influence the.
finding of the jury. So the lawyers
were very intent on listening when,
in response to tbe demand of the
judge, Pat began to tell what lie
knew. This was his testimony,
spoken very rapidly: "The first lick
lie hit him he missed him; the second
liek lie knocked him down, he hail
nothing in his two hands but his
two fists and they were in his pocket
in the inanetime."—Ex.
LOW RATE TO B. C.
Vancouver, Feb. 14,—The announcement was made here to-dny that Rev.
W. E. Prcscott, pastor of Wesley
Methodist church, had accepted a
call to the Fort Rouge church, Winnipeg, He will be succeeded in the
local pastorate by Rev. It. Milliken,
now pastor of Zion church. Winnipeg. The transfers will take place
at the end of May.
Hon. ft. G. Tatlow announced today that a special immigration rate
from Liverpool to Vancouver had been
secured at $10, though the details are
not, finally settled, This is tlie
same rale as now prevails to Calgary.
POTATOES AND THEOLOGY.
When a few years ago, the Rev.
Dr. Gondspcnd Visited the Soulh on
an educational mission in behalf of
Hie Benedict Institute, the colored
school of theology, iu Columbia, S,
t\, he was called upon to fill the
pulpits ot several churches in the
Palmetto capital. One Sunday
morning he preached a sermon ot
great power in the swell negro Baptist church. After announcing his
text, and before beginning his exegesis, the minister said: "It is but
right, my friends, that I should say,
with regard to the words I have
chosen as the basis for my discourse, that I have interpreted them
for myself, independent of tbe views
of Bible scholars. I am free to say
that commentators do not agree with
me."
Without waiting to hear more, one
of the members of Big Bethel quietly
slipped out of tbe door, and made his,
way to his cabin in the suburbs of tho
city.
He returned, and awaited at the
church door until the congregation
bad dispersed.
"Boss," said he, approaching the
learned divine, "dat were 'er great
sarmon you preached, but I hear you
say dat de common taters don't
agree wfd yo', so, boss, I's brung you
some fine yams of my own raisin',
sar," and he placed at the feet of
the preacher a sack of the aforesaid
yams.—Ex.
A PICNIC, DID YOU SAY.
A woman and eight children got. on
the train one day at a small town
in Kansas. The conductor, coming
through, said, "Hello, what's- this,
a picnic?" The woman replied,
"It's a family, sir, and I'll have you
to understand it's no picnic." She
settled the oldest hoy on a seat and
then crowded the rest on top. When
the conductor came for the t.darts
she produced one for herself. "Is
that all?" asked the conductor. "I
thought I saw a large hoy." "He's
under seven, sir," she answered.—Er

I once beard a story of a poor
parish who wanted tti give their
minister something, but they weie
too poor. They had nothing to give
except a few botta-M of wine, so they
conceived the idea of each giving Hie
pastor two bottles apiece. 'They got
au empty barrel during the night,
and put it in his yard. During the
night each member was to go and
empty two bolt lees into the barrel;
Ihe next day they all gathered to
give the pastor a surprise, and open
llie barrel of wine. When they tapped the barrel it ran clear water.
Each bad thought the other would
put in his wine, and two bottles ot
water would not be noticed in a bar-
rel.-Ex.
