of Kootenay, Hritish Columbia
NOTE: The average circulation ol
the Herald for thc past live months
has been 6,817 per month, which
shows a substantial Increase. It is
only fair to the advertisers, however,
to say that this material increase nf
the average was due to an Increased
number of papers issued during the
month of Oc toiler and distributed almost entirely in a systematic manner
through the territory tributary to
Cranbrook,
Thai Canadian gold coins will soon
hf an assured fact is made apparent
by the visit to the coast by ll. Pearson, chief nssayer in the Federal
mint al Ottawa, who has heen
Travelling through the Kootenay and
Boundary with the ohjecl of investigating the gold resources of the lower portion of the province. Wilh a
mini in Canada there Is no reason
why lhe Yukon and British Columbia
golil should be still allowed fo go Lo
the Sfatea.
i The coming year will lie one In
which Cranbiook will require a
strong man tor mayor. Put iu
ymir liest    licks     for the strongest
'man.
When Mr. Braudieth was here last
weok he, as Is his custom, when in
Cranbrook, dropped in to the Herald
office There is no man in tbe
provinee who takes a keener or deeper [uteres! in horticulture than Mr.
Htnndivtli and he is particularly
anxious that the latent iruit possibilities ot the upper country should
Ibu advertised to tbo world, Speaking in ;i representative <>[ the Herald, he said. "One plain nf apples
labeled: 'Grown at Cranbrook, B.C,'
and senl lo the Spokane apple show

I more „ I   (ban anythlmt that could
be done at this time     Where is your
Board ol Trade I'ho Herald could
oiih    echo "where? "At     New
Wei Imlnstw," continued \lr. Brand-
in'li, ■ there It an exhibition every
{i.iii which is attended by al least
five i Imn.-;,md people from the interior
ol British Columbia and many moro
from outside Point*, but the\ never
lit.ii  i.l     Cranbrook     there,   *   They
ver heard of Nelson until I set lhc
II rolling and got t-he Nelsnn peoplo
send ovet exhibits."    When   ont-
le   people see how we   are neglect-.
I mn     opportunities ol advertising j
the town nnd the district,, it. is time,'
that,   the   Board of   Trade   "book n
tumble"   or     lhat a new institution
should    he    formed. The   Herald
knows that .1. l-\ \1. Pinkham and
\. L. McDermot dn all they can,
lmi no two nu-n ran run a Board of
Tradi' and besides it is too discouraging when there is no hacking. However, ih.- polnl the Herald wants Ihi
make is this: Thai before the true
Utilities ol ibis district, as a
"fruil- eountrv, are known to the
world we must show lhc world nur
goods.
It is Unit- to think alwtlt Christmas
presents and io most people, especially those who are not overburdened
wiib ih.. contents of the flesh pots ot
Egypt ir is a matter ol some concern, There are so many relatives
and iriends to bo remembered at this
season that oue wishes tu bo a millionaire at once. Bul after all it Is
the value of a gilt that makes
acceptable The smallest, and
most Inexpensive gift il given with
ihat spirit ol generosity which it
should bo enhances its value to the
recipient a hundred lold. Ovid said:
"Presents whieh our love for the
donor lias rendered precious are ever
llie most acceptable." "There is no
grace in a beneiit that sticks to the
lingers," wrote Seneca, and no greater truism was ever written. Whatever we give he it great or small let
it be given with a free band and an
open heart and with all sincerity.
While on tbe subject of Christmas
presents there is a point Uut should
nol he overlooked. There are some
in this community who will not be
able in have all thu Christmas joy
that the average person expects and
has. Thank goodness we have not
the teeming thousands of the great
cities, but still there are some.
Tliere are some little children whose
stockings will not be tilled to the
bursting poinl by Santa Claus. For
these tbe Herald would appeal. Some
small gifts which will cost very little
would make .Ihese little hearts glad
and unless one lus tried one cannot
understand what a degree of pleasure
will bring to the giver. Whatever
nr intentions are along the line oi
Christmas gilts be sure that you
make at least one heart glad at that
eason   when all   hearts   should   be
lad,
Every citb.cn ol Cranbrook should
.It end' the band concert on the 1-Stb
iiid il Miis is impossible should at
least purchase a ticket. The band
buys have done a great deal to keep
Uie band going and tbe assistance oi
ilie public should be freely given ut
Ibis lime. Let it he the object of
the people nf Cranbrnok to have one
of the besl bands In Western Canada.
One booster will make a hundred
boosters. One knocker will make
two hundred knockers. It is very
dillicull for human beings not to influence each other. Wc are all links
in ii chain. It is better to he a
booster link than a knocker link.
Bid il ever strike you bow much
uood a boost could do and how much
harm a knock could carry with it?
One knock, be it so slight, can du
mnre harm than the biggest boost
nu earth. Never be a pessimist. It
hurts. Always bo an optimist because optimism is thc one thing
ihal nukes life worth living.

there were greater things, however,

LOOKING BACKWARDS
'TIIK   GROWTH   OF   CRANHROOK
AS SEEN BV AN OLD TIMER.
Over len years auo ilir writer .sau
it few I cuts and still fewer buildings
on llie prairie wliieli is now tho oltj
of Crnnbrook. Probabl) no place
in Western Canada has prawn more
rapidly and along sueh substantial
lines withoiil the semblance ol a
liooni, as Cranbiook. How gradually
the main street grew is a matter
easily rembereded by those who were
licre. The Cranhrook hotel (not, the
elaborate hostelry that it is today),
and what is now the Queens were tho
lirst. Then came what is now the
Cosmopolitan, tte Manitoba and Wil.
[son's jewelry store, which latter was
[thru Uio Canadian Hank of Commerce.
Afier that thc street gradually filled up to the state which jt Is today.
Haker Ilill, now the site of so many
I modern and handsome homes, was
destitute o( buildings and where the
English ehureh now stands was the
home nt many families, of badgers,
gophers and chipmunks, who bad lived
there undisturbed for years and
years. Many ol the residential portions of the city were then Virgin
Forest where the lumberman's axe
luid never heen wielded. With all
tliis it must bo remembered that
there lias never been a boom ot any
description and never has there lieen
a huilding put up that was not
needed for immediate wants. Thus
the lown has not had to go through
the set hack which overbuilding always brines to a new western
town. Looking back over the vista
of nearly eleven years, ft is hard   to
[believe, that in so short time, Cranbrook should have developed into thc
'modern little eity whieh it is with
jail tlie modern conveniences of much
older places In the east. There is a
reason and it is that the people of
! i 'ranbrook havo always had faith in
the future of their town and that
[same faith has been ihe means of
building up the commercial center of
the district here. Natural advantages as to position in the center of
the lumbering and mining' industries
jaiid now the agricultural ones, has
of course, had a great deal to do
with the growth of the town. The
! maintenance of the Canadian Pacific
'railway divisional point at Cranhrook has lieen thc means of a latgp
; number of railroad men making their
homes here. It is for these reasons
that Cranbrook has grown and te
still growing into a city of homes
of which her citizens are most justly
proud.
WATCH HER GROW.
The new buildings in Cranhrook
this yenr so far are valued at
eighty thousand four hundred dollars.
These building consist of one public
hall and -II private houses, This
tatter fact spi-nks volumes because ft
shows what the Herald has always
maintained, that no huilding was ever
put up in Cranbrook on speculation
and that each and every one that
is built is put there for use. Among
? the new Businesses that have been established., this year arc: A steam
laundry, a cigar factory, a machine
shop ' and a taxidermist establishment.
BURNED TO DEATH.
John Maki, a Swede, was burned to
death in Moyie last Saturday night.
It seems    that   Maki stuck his min
ers' candlestick Into the wall along
side his bod. The bed clothing took
lire and before lu* could be Fcscuod
lie WflS cremated.

FOREST OF CANADA
RECENT ESTIMATES OF THEIR
\REA GREATLY REDUCED.
Eight hundred million acres um«I to
[he accepted as the area of that part
nl Canada covered by forests; two
hundred million acres is the estimate
of l-ho commercial I v valuable forest*
,as given by Dr. B. E. Eomow,'he&ri
of the Faculty of Forestry at Mu-

of Vancouver, B.C., thinks, would
cover the "actual cutting area, that
is, Hi.- aiea on which arc found
forests of commercial value, as nmas-
uiid by present-day logging standards." this figure including the areas
baring timber suitable for pulpwood
oi  saw-timber.
Both Mr. Fernow and Dr. Clark
aro woll known authorities on forestry subjects. The former is the
nutfrar of the well-known work.

is practically the only work'in English treating comprehensively this aspect or thc subject. Dr. Clark has

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER.
CHRISTMAS REVERIES.
i A right, real, merry-go-round,
happy  Christmas.
I There is much cheer in a kind
I word and a "Mnry Christmas.''
i The value of a Christmas gift lies
in the testimony it gives ol tlw affection that prompts it.
Beautiful and right it is that gifts
and good wishes should fill the air
tike snow flakes at Christmas tide,
The Christinas chimes are pealing,
'softly pealing) the joyous sounds are
ringing, ever louder and clearer,
nearer and nearer, like a sweet toned
benediction falling on tne ear. Glad
ringers arc pulling the ropes, and in
one grand swell of melody Christmas
I with Its old. yet ever new and marvelous mysteries, hursts triumphantly
on the earth once more.
The fact that Christmas giving is
an exchange of things often not need-
cd, and that it tends to mutual lo^s
rather than mutual gain—which is
tho law of barter—elevates it far
above- trade. The perennial benevolence which finds its expression in
Christmas giving has the stamp ot
tlie divine and the spiritual upon it,
and it argues tbat there is something
more in man than the mere materialist sees there.
Christmas is really the world's ick
m vai—every tribe and people upon the
earth's surface observe it in some
form. The forms may vary hut the
.spirit is everywhere the same. The
different nations ol the world celebrate the virtues and illustrious deeds
of their great men and we on this
side of the water do the same when
we celebrate the birth of King Edward in November, or the birth of
the nation in July, but in December
the world celebrates au event which
far surpasses the birthday of Wash!
lugton, or Wellington, or Napoleon, or
Alexander the Great, or even. the
birth of a nation. It is the birth
of tho world's Redeemer, who was
given   as an atonement for sin.
At this time of the year the faith
uf little children is strongly emphasized. Throughout the world of
Christendom childhood is looking to
that mysterious individual Santa
Claus for the bestowal ut his annual
favor, Implicitly thc little unes believe in his existence and in his beneficence and from every letter box in
the country missives to him are
trustingly dispatched. Not a few
of them are most pathetic. Is not
nil faith typical of this childhood
faith, and are not the rewards of il
similar to these? Some how, it is
part of our nature and few there lie
who can live very good without it.
Who would ta'*e away lhe faith th»l
a child has in this mysterious persona^, Santa Claus, myth though he
he, and who would take from weak
and frail humanity that larger sweeter trust in   the eternal goodness.
Dear readers of this column, it is
ours to again greet ymi with a
"Merry Christmas." We have continued* our "labor of love" until this
time, and here we are. Yet it is
from ■-- selfish motives, we assure
you, or ambition for public emoluments tImt we have continued our
work, or shall continue it, but only
with the desire to do good, peradven-
turo to brighten some life, encourage
some despondent one, drop a few
brief words of truth to drive error
itorn the heart, and nossihly to lead
some one to "choose that better
part" that might not otherwise have
dene so. How well we have succeeded, you, reader, wil, have to declare. We aro admonished to "sow
heside all waters, knowing not which
shall prosper, this or lhat." We
have simply written for thc "'Home
Circle," the most sacred precinct
under heaven, and if there is any
homo or any heart made better    and (
brighter because of our words, verily

MERRY   VCI.ET1DE.
This is thc merry Yuletido season,
when all the joys uf life center round
the fireside. The members of the
family, if at nil convenient, gather
nl this limo under the parental roof.
Tn enhance good feeling, presents are
bestowed and greetings sent to abut ones. The home, be It ever so
humble, is the one sweet spot to
which all eyes are longingly turned,
and from which all happiness radiates.
The proud boast of the old English
common law that "a man's home is
bis ens tlo." The four winds of
heaven rtlght blow through its
chinks and crannies, but the king
himself might not cross ils threshold
unbidden " Only the law's stern
necessity in pursuit ot crime could
authorize an unwelcome intrusion.
The sanctity of former times still
scrupulously surrounds it, and the
saercdness of Its portal has lieen but
enhanced by ehe advancement of civilization. The modern home needs
neither towers, battlements, nor bastions to protect it from the assaults
of the powerful. The humblest citizen to defend his lowly shack can invoke Ibe protecting arm of the whole
nation.
The governments of all the world
foster the love of home. Liberal
taws are enacted with this end in
view. The public domain is generous! v bestowed upon bona tide
settlors. The various states, without, we believe, a single exception,
bave exempted the homes from seizure
for even a just debt. In short, tho
protection and saercdness of the
homes goes side by side with that
nl the person. It is the commendable desire of every worthy citizen
to he the owner oi his own homo
in fee simple, and to encourage this
desire havo all these beneficent laws
been enacted.
But God must he in all to insure
iho full measure of happiness that
mav therein be produced. In our
parlv Sundav school lessons we were
taught lhat God was everv where,
ami, spiritually considered, this is
true. Yet it is not in this sense
Ihal the expression is used. Nor in
Uie sense that God shall be present
in embroidered mottoes on the wall;
but that the spirit nf Christ—wliich
is peace, justice, love, forbearance,
temperance, ' patience—shall fill the
bosoms of those therein dwelling. For
where the spirit of Christ abides not,
the spirit of evil is sure to intrude.
In the spiritual and moral life there
are no empty houses.

toppled over. Six feet trom the

directly across a clothes line stretched across the street, and the rope,
acting much as a net would have

THE OLD TIMERS
********************************************.
A clan that ia unfortunately rapidly disappearing Irom amongst us Is
tbat ol the genuine, old time, prospectors and placer miners who held
true to the code ol honor and the
traditioas ol aa earlier generation.
Prodigal ol their wealth when tbey
bad it, tbey endured hardships ol a
almost incredible character with a
stoicism tbat was heroic. As a
class tbey were the biggest hearted men in the world, whose sympathies woke like a (lash to the
touch ol affliction in another. Tbeir
word was their bond, and be it ever,
remembered, they took Insult from
no man. They lie, too, many of'
them, in unmarked graves, though
somo, to be sure, have the great
mountain peaks ol the Rockies and
the Selkirks for their monuments,
while creels in plenty sing tbeir
names to the quiet nights. Only the
best ol them survived down to those
later times since a constant system
ol elimination was steadily going
lorward cutting down the undesirables who failed to prove their worth
in word and act. The giants lived
on la the warmth ol the regard and
respect of all about tbem, the less
worthy drilted away. Thus it came
about that within a very lew yean
ago, especially in tho Lardeau
country, one could encounter with
some ol the very finest ot tho class
referred to. At that time communication with the placer grounds and
mineral claims was hard ot accom-
complishmeat so that every one
knew every one else. There existed
such a sense ol absolute security in
the trust and honesty of those ahout
them that no man dreamed ol locking
his door or of doing more ln the
way ol setting bolt and bar on bis
gold dust than putting it away Id
some empty pepper box. Every
man's goods were sate. Etiquette
of a rude kind existed. One ol its
rules was that no man wanting a
meal should pass another man's
shack without helping himself to
what was there, and this whether the
owner was at home or out attending to his work, Tlie meal disposed
ol, it waa the rule to carelully wash
all soiled diahea and put hack everything in its own place. Failure in
these little matters waa a cross
breach ol good manners most bitterly
resented and the offender dubbed a
dirty condemned son of a female dog
with the entire approval of tho community. For offences of a graver
kind and sort the verdict was pronounced "He's no good." Thla waa
usually followed by a quiet order
to shift to other ground, and lt tha
man did not act on the order he
pretty soon found he waa running
the serious risk ot having a bullet
placed in such portion ol his skull
as rendered medical skill of little
avail. So those little, hand* of tear-
mwmmtn-, in,, *> _t   *_,
with hooks ol steel, and when the
country began to be opened up and
strange faces became common, they
came to be looked on, especially by
those who bad brains aad heart
enough to look below their rough
exteriors, as the very salt of the
earth. And tbey were. Pity lt is
that so few of them survive to
teach a weak kneed generation tbe
value of pluck, manliness and the
value ol honest truth and worth in
the battle ol life. It needed but a
short acquaintance with any of them
of cheap deceits and the so called
to become alive to the shallowness
to the jails, mostly. And there they
"smartness" that is supposed to be
the summit ot human wisdom with a
class of empty-headed tools who
flourish for a day and disappear—
rightly belong.
Still, the old-timers were lar Irom
beiai; Puritans and strict moralists
in the narrow sense tbat seeks to
railroad the entire community to
heaven by making lile a positive hell
upon earth by all kinds ot petty
exactions and restrictions ot reasonable enjoyments. Small blame to
tbem II they failed to understood
why the ninety and nine should be
treated aa unreasoning beings just
because the hundredth man made a
beast ol himsell with drink. Theoretical religion as preached (rom comfortable pulpits made small appeal to
them.
Only the other day .lack McNeil,
who worked (or many years on thu
Movie river, was called home hy the
God whom he adored in tho wide
spaces and in thc hills the manifestations of his glory, lt Is told
by Billy West how, that when Billy
and his partner bad come in from
Bonners Ferry and had started to
work on Weaver creek, tbeir lood
supply ran out. Some six dollars was
thc total ol the result ol their plac-
ering to that time, and with this
pinch ol gold* Billy went down to
Rldgway's camp, where Jack was oao
of the bosses.
"What are the chances for somo
grub?" said Billy to McNeil.
"The chances arc ol the best,"
answered Jack. "Come up along to
tho shack. We arc making good
money here, and I'm told you chaps
haven't hit the pay streak yet."
Arrived at the shack Jack slammed
down on the table a chunk ol porta
weighing over seventy pounds, hall a
sack ol flour and a lot ol tea. Food
in those days cost like bank notes in
this part ol East Kootenay lor there
was little or no transportation facilities as we at present understand
them.
"Look here, pard," said Billy, fairly astonished at the supply oflcred
him, "I bave only sis dollars in dust
in uy jeans, and I cannot pay for all
that pd. of ittl*"
"That's all right, son," answered
Jack, "Pay for it when you can. If
vou never can pay for it I'll know It
Is not your fault."
A man with a big, warm heart like
tbat will never have rough times
when the scales ot the Eternal Justice are adjusted to decide his late.
There has been a deal ol good air
thrown Into violent agitation since
that day and time by eloquent
preachers and profound moralists of
the arm-chair variety, but the rough
and ready appeal to the necessities ol
the actual situation ol that touch ot
kindness lives as a monument to poor
Jack when the vaporings of thc
moralists who would look on Jack as
a brand for the burning, are dead and
largotten as things that never were.
The story ls told ol Jack Atchison
and Dave Morgan, both veteran prospectors of the Lardeau and both,
happily still living, that they died
and went to look for eternal lodgings
at the Golden Gates. They met
with the good St. Peter and asked
how things looked in the Celestial
World. Peter fs a man of great experience in the styles ot the various
applicants, and noticed that they
were somewhat out ol the common
run.
"Where do you men come from?" he
asked.
"We come Irom the Lardeau," said
Dave, "and more bv tokeo we oaly
made one or two decent stakes in
our lives below there."
"Lardeau! Lardeau!! Don't think
I bave a single soul Irom that address.    Come ln."
They went In, and walked up thc
cold-en streets.
"Looks a party fair prospect," said
Dave.
1 never liked them darned blanket
veins," replied Jack, "and this is one
nl 'em sure." Jack did not want to
display any undue enthusiasm, being a
man ot great experience.
"Blanket or no blanket," said
Dave, "I'm goin' to have some ol
the truck assayed, and if it pans out
O. K. we'll lust naturally sink on
her till h—1 treeres." tt assayed
■ii carat—pure gold and worth $20 *,n
ounce.
Inside two davs they had down a
shaft, and a saloon in full blast on
Ihe side, and a dump and pack animals, and the very time of their
lives. St. Peter was on the point of
losing hia job tor permittini such a
tearing up ot the golden streets and
was almost beside himself, thc decent
man. Of course, there was no nns-
sible means ot getting rid ol them
except they were nleased to depart ot
their own tree wills.
In the height ol the trouble un
comes Jim Graham, ehlet teamster
for Andy Daney, ol Ferguson. Alter
he had got his passport he naturally
headed lor the Jack and Dave claim
and lound our heroes happy beyond
the power ot words to describe. Jim
at once took a contract for the ore
hulling to the mill that was being
erected down by the Gate of Jasper,
a down hill haul and on the finest
kind of a road, at 110 a ton Inr two
miles and a half. .Ilir. was going to
make a fortune.

Advice«=
Buy this Xmas for a

If you want a wood pile, big, high and
long, you must saw wood ; likewise, if
you want money you must make one
good investment
We have been fortunate enough to pick
up a few shares in the Canadian Northwest Oil Company, Limited, operating
on six sections of land S. W. of Pineher
Creek, from a party who has been
forced to sell at a sacrifice to pay certain debts—which we can offer you at
an extremely low figure.
You cannot afford to miss this. We
believe at this price this stock is the
best speculation in sight to-day.
You know that small investments in
oil shares have made fortunes and are
paying big dividends.
From what we can learn this is a
sound Company. They have a good
property.
See us immediately. These few
shares won't last long.

This yarn was told to I host*

never was a narrative that ticltled

Another of thi- old timers wns recently lost front the scenes of his
activities along Wild Horse Creek in.
Robert L. Doro. He was Irish by
birth i(inl knew the adventures of tbe
Calif ornlon Fort) Nlncrs as one who
took an active part' in them. N'n
one nf the Wild Horse placer miners made more, or as much as Mob
in his hevflav Bul little nt ii stay-
mi willi him owing to bis
unthinking generosity. Ol late years
he seems tii lmve lived nn dreams of
strange twtntg, one of them being

About this time Murphy would
he i.n the lloor and would take
Kloyd and whirl him in the air
like a (lap .lack, -smite hiin down into
a chair with a crash lit, to jar the
foundations of bis system, and proceed to undress Mm. This operation
finished. Murphy would holsl him on
ins bock again and with a bitch ot
bis shoulders and loins, shoot him
into his bunk, pretty much as a
man would heave a sack of flour onto
in upper tin. So ended Floyd's
spree.
When Patsoy went to town, ht.too,
;nt drunk, mellowly, and serenely
drunk. On arriving home it was
his habit of celebrating to sit on a
ular stump near the door and
all through the night to sing Irish
Heel ballads, like ''The Pashtecn
Mon." "Tbe Royal Blackbird," "The
'aravat .Mg," and others ot the
nri in a .voice that made the
nntiniains echo for miles around.
When Patsey had sung every song he
uld think of tn some imaginery
tlience, he would come Indoors and
lak'ng a "jolt" ot giant mai,Tiftude
would retire to his couch nnd snore
for the lost ol the night. Next day
all was forgotten. It is ten to one

lean understand!"
| Bad as this case was, Zam-Buk
! triumphed, and Mrs. Hughes suffers
Ino.longer. It needed a little perseverance with Zam-Buk certainly,
but ia   the end it cured!
Mrs. E. Boxall, ot Scott Street,
St. Thomas, says: "For months without cessation I endured great pain
from bleeding piles. For as many
months I tried everything which 1
thought would give me ease, but in
the end, dispirited and still suffering,
3 gave ii.1'
Then it was she heard of Zam-Buk,
and she adds: "Although 1 feared
Zam-Buk would be like the ordinary
remedies—useless—I am glad it was
not. It soon proved itself to he
very different. It rapidly gave me
relief, and after a time cured me
completely. I would like to let
sufferers from piles know what a
grand thing Zam-Bub is."
So one could go on quoting case
after case, and it is by working such
cures that Zam-Buk has earned for
itself its great reputation.
Now if you suffer from this terribly
painful ailment just be guided by the
foregoing cases!
For internal piles melt a little
Zam-Buk and thoroughly soak _ wad,
made of clean but old linen. Then
apply to the part. It tbe piles ate
external, application ol Zam-Buk is
still more simple. Bo it upon retiring. Next morning you will be
well satisfied!
Zam-Buk is a cure also for cold
sores, and chapped cracked hands, ulcers, festering sores, blood poisoning,
eczema, had leg, ringworm, scalp
sores, burns, scalds, and all stein
diseases and injuries.
All druggists and stores sell
Zam-Buk at 5(lc. a box, or may be
obtained past free from Zam-Buk
, Toronto, for price; 8 boxes for
$1,25. Vou arc warned, however,
against cheap and dangerous imitations somolimes offered as being
just as good." j

Wherever there is suffering from

There are lots of reasons for this,
hut one or the best Is that in
practically all eases of piles where
the use of Zam-Buk is persevered with
complete cure—not mere relief—is the
result.
Mrs. Wm. Hughes, of 253, Hoche-

bad that I could hardlv bear to move
