traveled   from Windermere io   I'r.in-

is taken into consideration tbat the

und speaks well Ior Mr. Hater's
machine, a While Steamer. The parly
lell Windermere at U.-Iu Sunday
looming uiul nn ived in Uranbrook
nl 7. in that evening, having stopped
hi the way four hours and twenty
minutes, making the ma total lime
of covering ilu- ninety-live miles,
Iim- hours uml forty minutes. Aauth-
.■!■ remarkable feature of Uu- trip was
the fact thai neither going or coming were tbey compelled to tnako a
Singh- stop un account of any mishap
to the machine. The long slop
on the return wus made at
Sheep Cnek on account of the excel-
tiiii meal served by Mrs. Emery,
who is recognized as one of the best
cooks iu   the Kootcuny Valley.     Mr.
linker    has      reusoli to feel   proud  nf
the record made by his machine
with no special efi'ort, and it is needless to sny that those who were
with him will remember it lor a long

TiE DIXIE TROIBADOI'RS
Tlir Kdinonton Bulletin has this to
•in ol the Dixie Troubadours that
v, ill appear at lho Auditorium on
rhurs-day, July 2flth:
Tliere is a first-class attraction at

southerners presented their new creation, "A Tup i" N*c\v Orleans" last
night iinil the audience thoroughly
piijoyi .1 the continuous round nt
liiinht musical comedy, heen wit, v\-
ccpLional choral work, and the beautiful singing <>r the prima donna,
Sarah Green. There is not a dull
moment in tin- whole show ami it
is doubtful if Kdmontonians have
lutiglied so much in six months as
they ili-l during the two hours

'Ie comes in contact with a com-
lany culled thc Strollers. The
mnriagi-r is hard pressed for lunds
nnd starts mil systematically to
fleece Silas, to keep the Strollers
afiont. Silas agrees to put up the
monev lo ciigane tiie celebrated Alabama nitllitingale to star the eom-
nanv and, of course, finds liis sister
in Nrw Orcleans.
The parts are all well taken, and
there is sparkllne wit mixed in with
Ihe vivacious acting and sintcinn that
is delightful. Sarah Green, the
prima donna of the eompanv, has a
lieli, well-cultivated voice, with
volume and sweetness, Her remli-
lioiis of "I've Taken ljuite a Fancy
lo You, Dear," ami tho "Kerf, Hed
Hose" were greeted wilh hearty ap-
lilaiise ami the encore in the old
favorite "Down <m the Swanee
Uivei" hroughl three or four re-
ealls, Oeorgc Taylor is a show in
himself and llie supporting members are all good. It is a line,
clean show, teeming wilh bright
comedy, ami one '.hat. everyone, seemed lo heartily enjoy.

CRANBROOK AS A RAILWAY CENTER.
It is a Divisional Point on the Crows Nest Pass lino of
the C.P.R. This line runs through to the Pacific Toast via
Nelson and the Lakes, which are unsurpassed for beauty.
It is in direct touch with Spokane via the Soo-Spokane
road, being only seven hours distant, ami a through train is
now running to Portland, Ore. Double daily connections
with Spokane train service—one through train and one
local.
lt i.s the point where you get ofi tlic Spokane Express to
catch the trains for Kimbcrley, Nelson, Rossland and other
Kootenay points.
It is the Divisional Point and Termilial of the North
Star Branch of the C.P.R., whieh runs north into the rich
mining, lumbering and farming country of tbe St. Marys
Valley, passing WycliJTe, Portcous, Marysville und Kimberley.
CAPITAL   OF    KAST     KOOTENAY   IS   CRANBROOK.
MERCANTILE AND GENERAL DISTRIBUTING CENTER
It is the headquarters of the County Court and tlio Judge
resides here.    Supremo Court Sittings arc held here.
It is the seat of tiie Provincial Government Ollice and the
residence of the Government Agent.
It is the Port of Entry for tbe Customs of Canada.
EAST   KOOTENAY
FROM   AN
POINT.
INDUSTRIAL    STAND-
Cranhrook is the industrial and commercial center of
this District, its chief industries being :—
Railroading. Sash and Door Works.
Lumbering. Mixed Farming.
Mining. Fruit Growing.
Smelling ot Minerals.
Willi tbe utilization of nearby waterfalls, for the production of electrical energy lor manufacturing purposes, Cranhrook will naturally become a manufacturing center of great
importance and the cultivation of the surrounding agricultural land will ensure to its citizens, at reasonable prices,
tliose products of farm, orchard and dairy at present being
imported from tbe States aud other outsidepoints, simply
heeause we have not got the people to grow the stuff here.
ln this district we have eighteen saw mills, employing in
the neighborhood of 12-50 men.
Railroad shops employing men.
Divisional point on Crows Nest Pass Railway. Total
payroll $65,000 monthly.
Two sash and door factories and planing mills.
A cigar factory.
A steam laundry.
NEW BUILDINGS.
During 190!) new buildings will be erected to the value
of $250,1100, which will include $00,000 new brick and stone
public school, (foundation commenced); a $20,000 bank building, $10,000 Masonic Temple and many line residences, besides
extensions to the shops and round bouses of the Canadian
Pacific Railway to the extent oi $100,000. The City of
Cranbrook contemplates spending $10,000 on street improvements alone.
There are a number of projected lines ot railroad, with
Cranbrook as their destination.
The Kootenay Central Railway has a charter for a railway running up this valley connecting with thc main line
of Hit' Canadian Pacific Railway at Golden—which will pass
through an ideal fruit and mixed farming country, also
abounding in silver-lead and copper mines and large forests
of timber.
The Crawford Bay Railway has a charter for a road to
run up the St. Marys Valley, west to Crawford Bay, which
would give Cranbrook and East Kootenay direct communication with Nelson, with only a very short passage on the
Kootenay Lake, nnd would open up a rich mining, lumbering
and farming section ol thc country.
A.s a divisional point, Cranbrook is assured indefinitely
of being the headquarters of all railway men working north,
south, east and west.
CLIMATE.
The climate of East Kootenay is, to say the least, ideal,
and is recognized by all who come here, either to stay or
In going through, ti) be   something unsurpassed in Canada.
We have four distinct seasons.
Spring opens up about the middle of March, with beautiful sunny weather, though there is a cold snap in the air.
The snow leaves the open land about this time, and hangs
a little longer under tlte timber. Ploughing can be commenced about the beginning of April, and the growth in tlie
ground begins about May 1st.    Spring rains are frequent.
Summer is hot, but there is nearly always a light
breeze, and the heat is not oppressive. Tlie rainfall is
light, about 15 in. to 20 in. on thc average all thc year
round, including snow full. June is our wet month, July
August and September, beautiful weather.
Winter commences about the beginning of December, the
first snow fall coming about the middle of the month;
generally there is a cold snap before Christmas, and another
in February, lasting in eaeh case about a week; but though
cold, the air is dry nnd no wind. There is good sleighing
all winter, from about December 15th to March 1st. This
district is particularly recommended hy tbe medical profession as very healthy, particularly for nny disease of a
pulmonary nature.
-   MAS EAST KOOTENAY A MARKET?
Most decidedly it has, and its own farmers and producers
cannot even supply the local demand.
Imports into tlie country may be conservatively estimated as follows :
Produced here.
Eggs     8,000 cases      300    cases
Cheese   70,000 pounds  none pounds
Butter  208.000 pounds  4,500 pounds
Ham, Bacon, etc. 1100,000 pounds      200 pounds
Lard  150,000 pounds  10,000 pounds
Beef     0,000 head     1,500     head
Pork    5,000 bead        800     head
Apples   15,000 boxes      100    boxes
Potatoes      1,500 tons      100     ton?
This district can supply all the above, having everything
necessary to produce them: climate, water, soil, area,
range. It only requires the people to come in and raise
them.
Fruit is largely imported every year from the United
States, as the quantity at present grown in this district is
limited to a dozen or so orchards only, and whilst these
are producing well, it will be some time hefore those now
being planted will be hearing. Fruits of all kinds have been
grown here with great success and fruit growing is beyond
the experimental stage. Tbe East Kootenay market is
growing larger everv dav. Population is increasing in the
city and district, and the farmer and wholesaler have an
additional market to cater to each year. The East Kootenay market extends throughout Alberta and as far east as
Winnipeg, Man., nnd it will lie impossible to ever dream of
satisfying the vast Prairie Provinces, and the Crows Nest
Pass with any of the commodities which we produce, especially fruit. Tbe enormous coal fields of the Crows Nest
Pass wilt take nil we ean grow and never feel the effects of
It-in their market, nnd ns our nroduc.tion increases this demand will Increase threefold. There Is coal enough
there to Inst for thousands of years, shipping at the rate ol
5000 tons per diem, and they have no land capable ol grow-
ing any produce, and East Kootenay District being the
closest producing country, it must necessarily be able to

FACTS   ABOUT FARMING.
Seeding of spring wheat as well as the sowing ot other
crops depends entirely on the opening of spring, as it ie
earlier some years than others. It is usually commenced
about the 1st of April and fall wheat about tiie middle ol
August. Fall wheat is grown quite extensively and this is
looked upon as au ideal fall wheat country, the usual yield
being about 30 bushels to the acre.
The vegetables produced in tbis district in quality and
quantity are exceptionally good. Ten tons of potatoes per
acre is an average crop. Sugar beets have given remarkable results and this could readily be made one ot the
staple industries of this district. Hay makes a great product, as it fetches so good a price, and a large tonnage is
grown in this district. On account of tlie large lumbering
operations carried on here, a great quantity has to be ship*
ped into the country.
Ihis is, besides an excellent stock raising country, there
being so large a free range, supplied with lakes and fine wild
feed. Sheep have been brought in during recent years, and
on account of the success met with, there is likely to be a
greater interest taken in the raising of this stock from
uow on.
NATURE OF THE LAND.
East Kootenay may be aptly described as a triangular
valley, wilh the International Boundary as its base, and
bounded thereby on the South; hy tbe Alberta boundary on
the East and by the Selkirk Range on the west. It is tbe
first fruit bearing section of British Columbia reached alter
leaving the beautiful plains ot Alberta. The country is
a park-like wooded country, and generally speaking a buggy
can he driven through the timber almost anywhere. On
each side of the valley is a great range ot thc Rocky Mountains, which rise steeply from their base upwards. From
the base the land runs cast and west in level terraces,
dropping by degrees until the level ot the Kootenay River,
which runs north and south through the center ol the
valley. These terraces constitute the bench lands, and are
intercourse!! with streams and creeks, upon which beaver
have worked extensively in the past, forming rich bay land
of loamy soil in places, which are uow nearly all occupied
as mixed farms, growing hay, fall wheat, fruit, etc. On the
sides of the larger rivers running through this district are
large areas of bottom land, clear to a great extent, and
partly covered with a growth ot poplar and willow. These
make rich hay producers and are sub-irrigated Irom tbe
rivcr seepage. The majority ol the land in this district,
however, is the bench land, the best and richest ot which is
slightly wooded and now being cleared rapidly all over the
district. Wherever timber is tound, a good sub-soil can be
looked for; tlie soil is a rich loam, the product ol ages ot
decaying vegetable matter, and a small percentage ot clay.
It is close-grained, yet very loose and loamy when worked;
underlying this soil is a very deep stratum ot gravel
cemented together with a glacial moraine. This is impervious to moisture and assists the top soil to retain its
moisture. These bench lands are generally slightly sloping,
making the under-drainage conditions all that could be desired. This land can he cleared and made ready tor
ploughing at an average cost ot Irom $30.00 to $60.00 per
acre, dependent upon the size and quantity ol the stumps.
Tbe best crops have becn raised Irom these bench lands, and
only very exceptionally has a year gone by when irrigation
lias been found necessary. However, tliere Ib plenty ol
water for this process and many irrigation systems are now
going in.
The wild products of this soil consist ot tour varieties of
native grasses, namely, wild timothy, red top, bunch grans
and vetch or pea vine. These grasses grow thickly on the
ground and in many places are more than knee high. They
grow abundantly under thc timber, hut it has been proved
that after the timber has been cut down, the bunch -trans
grows up stronger, forcing any weeds or weak timber urasses
away, killing them altogether. Wild cherries, strawberries,
sarvisherrics, huckleberries and raspberries also thrl-e. mi
this soil.

YOUR LOCAL PAPER
IT IS   A     FACTOR IN   THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR TOWN.
RETAILERS SHOULD SUPPORT IT.
(Calgary Trade Gazette.)
Confident and progressive, eminently typical ol the growing west-
is the press of Alberta.
The uewspaper pioneers of Alberta
who u quarter of a century ago began recording the events of the
then unknown west, aud telling of
its advantages, have every reason to
feel satisfied that the foundations
tliey then laid, and the policy they
adopted, have well stood the stress ot
time, and that lheir now numerous
successors have followed their example- The result is that Alberta
has through her daily, weekly and
monthly publications a medium of
publicity of which any province can
be proud; a medium of publicity
whieh at no direct cost to the community is proving of incalculable
benefit to   the province.
Where tliere is a railway station
and a fair collection of business
houses and residences, you may be
sure of finding a hustling individual
who is known locally as "the
editor." In many instances he combines many of the mechanical duties
of the ollice with that of editing his
paper. He is devouting his energies
to tlte up-building of the towu and
district. Incidentally lie is adding
to the value of every town lot and
every acre of farm land within the
district.
Unfortunately, in many cases, a
newspaper is not recognized as a financial asset of a town, for the town
seldom realifcs the amount of benefit
it receives from a newspaper. With
tlie large number ot people who are
looking to Alberta as their future
homes, the local newspaper is one of
the most potent factors in determining their immediate location.
If a prospective settler sees a copy
of a paper which contains a large
number of advertisements he forms a
corresponding idea of thc importance
of tlte town. If there be only a
few business houses represented in the
ad. columns, the man who is not on
the spot does not know of the existence of others, and therefore forms
erroneous impressions of thc business
importance of the particular point
under consideration. He may decide
to go some place else, which is a
direct loss to  thc town.
The advantage of advertising in the
local paper is one which is lost
sight of sometimes hy retailers,
though thc marvelous successes in
business hy men who nttrihute their
achievements largely to advertising,
have to a great extent corrected
this impression. No mcrchi
would continue in business if he did
not huve his signboard out. He rightly concludes that the purchasing
public would not know that he was
in business if he did not let them
know of it. If his advertisement
does not appear in the loeal paper
the same argument applies, hut with
added force. In thc latter instance
he is not only neglecting his own
opportunities, hut putting his own
town in a bad light.
Do not say that advertising is not
read. That has been disproved so
long ago and so often that it is unnecessary to repeat the proofs,
IK) not say that advertising does
not pay. One ot the reasons whv it
hns failed with some people is that
their advertisement Is not good reading; it is not interesting. It does not
tell thc public anything that they
want to know. For instance, compare thc news item which appear in
a newspaper with ihe advertised articles. Thc editor endeavors to
give Ws readers something new each
week. In a town of 1,000 popula-
latlon there are probably 000 people
who are doing very much as they
have been tor thc past week. Rut
there are some who have heen
brought Into prominence. It mav be
a fight, or a wedding, or a christening, or an accident, hut there is a
citizens ot tho town -who have   since
certain proportion of llie evcry-day
last publication day been brought
Into prominence in some particular
way. it is those who do something out of the ordinary who get
their names in the reading columns
ul the paper.
This should ho the aim ut advertisers. If a merchant announces
"dry goods, groceries, hats, caps,
boots and shoes; a full line of hardware. Prices right," as so many
advertisers do in the space they
waste in thc advertising (.0111111118, it
is jusl about ns interesting as the
reading columns of lhe paper would
lie if tbe editor proceeded to record
the fact that each of the Null people
were going on as usual. It the advertiser would pick out some particular articles iu his stock tliat are
particularly good, or cheap, or timely, these arc the ones he should
advertise, Do not tell the people
all the articles you have iu stock,
but tell tbem of something unusual
—something that they are likely to
want, and then show them that you
can supply Ihem with it.
Those who follow out this plan are
tliose who say that advertising
pays. It pays them, pays lhe purchaser, pays the publisher, lhe town
and district, because all prosper by
tlie money put into circulation.
Ho not be afraid lbe newspaper
mau will gel rich too quickly it
vou patronize him. 11 is characteristic of the business that tlie men
engaged in it do not lay up boarded
wealth, nor become custodians ol
predatory wealth with alarming
rapidity. They are always buying
something thai will enable them to
get out a better paper, or improving
their place nt business. They improve their papers just as surely ami
as quickly as their efforts aie rewarded with financial support, They
are boosting their lown and their
district 3(15 days iu lhe year and
every year they are in business.
They refuse to look'on the dark side
ot anything. If there is a hard
winter they get an interview witli
the inevitable old timer who recalls
"that the best crop tbe country ever
had was after a winter just like
Ibis." If the harvest does nnt come
up lo the expect nl inns, the newspaper man discovers by the wishbone of somebody else's goose that
the coming winter will be exceptionally mild. Newspaper men are
"all the time" boosters.
Live papers indicate a live lown.
Calgary and Edmonton at one lime
were "weekly paper" towns. Now
it requires several dailies In supply
the requirements of the people. Lethbridge has recently graduated from
lhe "weekly paper si/e and bus Its
dailv. All ibis within n comparatively few years. All the way from
tbe international boundary up to
Fort McMurray there are' weekly
papers in small and large towns telling thousands nf renders in nil parts

The negotiations for tlie re-organ-
[gabion ul this company bave been
going on during tbe last year.
Tliere has been a great deal ol litigation among tho various creditors
and wago earners in connection with
the Sullivan mine, but now all these
mat lers have been arranged. Tho
not result ol the re-organization
that the wages are to be paid at
about eighty-live cents on tbe dollar. The claims ol thc judgment
creditors ami creditors generally are
arranged by their taking stock in thc
new company. Only thc bondholders in the Sullivan mine are protected and they receive stock to the
amount ol their bonds, thc ordinary
common stock ol the Sullivan mine
being wiped out. Thc settlement is
looked upon as being very satisfactory for the district.

Ill's sale: K. H. Brownell, of Everett, Washington, and J. H. Lawson^

most a ruli' in this family that its
members shall bo killed fighting lot
the Kmi'ire in Asia. Lieutenant Quln-
liu Hat tyo fell commanding the
Guides' Cavalry close up to the
walls of Delhi. He was curiously
fond of quotations, Lord Roberts
recalls, and bis last words were
"Duleo et decorum est pro patria
mori." The llattves have constantly fuinilod this motto. Captain WtR-
r iiiii Battye, of the Guides, was kill-
i-il in llie first phase of the Afghan
war; Frederick Battye, also of the
Guides, fell at the bead of his reRi-
Niiiit iu tbe Chitral campaign; aud
Lieutenant H. M. Battye was one of
tin- Tlrah slain, lt was no fault of
tin1 late Major-General that he did
not meet a like fate, for be was in
the thick of Indian warfare for many
years, and was wounded in the
lief of Kandahar.
A sensational discovery was made
in Morloy'-s Pond, near Uotbctbam,
recently, when ihe dead body of a
mnn named George Bailey was found
iu the water. Deceased had been
engaged for some time to a young
woman named Betsy Carnelly, and
lhe wedding had heen fixed to take
place at tlic Rotberham Registry office. The prospective bride kept her
engagement and waited patiently for
nearly two hours, hut Bailey did not
turn up. Arrangements were then
made for the marriage to take
place on thc following morning, and
Inquiries were at once made respect--

Rambling_ Reveries
BY A DREAMER
Take your joy with you or you'll
not lind it even in heaven.
A home where happiness reigns is a
wealth more to he envied than the
great ri.hes o! a nation. Riches are
not essential to happiness, hut the
most happy and contented homes are
those in whieh poverty is associated.
Anil yet 'tis sad that so many homes,
wliere everything that is needed, or
can he purchased with money, seems
plentiful, should be filled with discord and unpleasantness, its inmates
going abroad to seek pleasure, where
they arc surrounded by numberless
evils and temptations.
"Time has scattered the snowy
flakes on her brow, plowed furrows
iti her checks—but is she not sweet
and beautiful now? The lips which
Imve kissed many hot tears from the
childish cheeks are the sweetest lips
in all the world. The eye is dim,
vet it glows with the rapt radiance
of a holy love which can never fade.
Oh, yes, she is a dear old mother.
Her sands of time arc nearly run
out, hut feeble as she is she will
go farther and reach down lower for
vou than will auy other on earth.
You cannot walk into midnight
where she cannot see you; you   can
not enter a prison whose bars shall
Itoop her out; vou cannot mount a
scaffold too high for her to reach and
iiless you. ln evidence of her deathless hive, when the world shall   des-
i pise und forsake you—when it leaves
you hy the wayside to die unnoticed
I—the dear old mother will gather you
up in her feeble    arms, carry     you
' homo and tell yon of your virtues until you almost forget that your soul
is disfigured by vices. Love lier
tenderly and cheer her declining
years with holy devotion."
I Is it worth while, because you feel
| out of sorts, to pull a long face, to
he disagreeable and cross to every,
one you meet and to make ihem unhappy? A cheerful smile, a kind
word will not only make your friends
and neighbors lighter hearted, but
will help to cheer yon also. A
cheerful countenance Is a duty we
owe to our neighhors and how much
more it is necessary in the home!
i (lur friends can get out of our way
: if wc are not good companions, hut
lour family cannot. They aro hclp-
1 less victims, shut up in the same
j house with you. For the sake ol the
Children, for the sake of the elders, fnr the sake of all humanity, let
us cultivate a pleasant smile, a
■hearty laugh, and a hahit of cheerfulness.
INFLUENCE.
Influence is a power we eiert over
others tiy our thought, word and actions.    We all of ub nt times    lose
sight of this principle, and apparently act on the assumption that what
wc do or think or say can affect no
one but ourselves. But we are so
connected with the immortal beings
around us that we cannot avoid
exerting a most important influence
over tiieir character and final condi-1
lions. Since we all have a personal
influence and our words and actions I
leave a well-nigh indelible trace, it'
is our duty to make that influence as
potential for good as possible. ln
order to do this you must show yourself a woman among all. How
great a beauty and blessing it is to
hold the royal gilts ol the soul, so
that they shall he music to some
and fragrance to others and life to
all! Some women cling to their
homes like the honeysuckle over the
duor, yet, like it, sweeten all the
region with the subtle Iragrance ol
their goodness.
Oil, it is terrible thc power that wc
have; thc power ol influence. No
thought of us is more rife with a
solemn grandeur of interest than that
which relates to thc influence we are
silently exerting upon our fellow
creature. Wc read that not In the
earthquake that shook the mountain
pillars, nor in the whirlwind that
rent the forest was Ood lound; but
in the "still, small voice," which,
like the whisper ol love, breathes into thc heart what the loud voice
cannot.
To make home more agreeable and
attractive than other places to its
inmates requires tho utmost care and
thought fulness on our part in regard
to thc welfare ot others, which we
must practice daily, and as there
is pleasure derived from doing one's
dutv, we render our own paths more
pleasant through life hy assisting in
smoothing thc tough ones ol others.
Itt the home should be lound the
most delicate and refined society,
as here it is that wc receive our
first and most influential lessons in
the great school ol life. These lessons should partake ot perlect honesty, truthfulness, manhood, heroism,
patriotism and all things that tend
to elevate  thc  human character.
Do not forget and abandon all
neighborly courtesy and pleasant intercourse with Iriends. Man Is . a
social animal, especially woman. A
woman needs friends, companions,
conversation, sympathy and neighborly visitings to and fro. All work
aud no play make a dull woman. Let
her visit her friends, and receive
thctn in her home, that her heart
mav he lightened and brightened by
an interchange ol thoughts and feelings, lie neighborly, be obliging, be
Mm! nnd courteous, and then when
sorrow and sickness come you will
bave sympathy and help.
Tlie home is for happiness. Whatever brings tiie highest happiness is
right and best. Take a broom and
sweep your floor, but before you get
down on your hands and knees to
scrub think a minute, ls tt the
floor or the children that need you
most? Is it best to make a scrubbing brush of yourself with a scowl
for lho dirty boots when husband
find children 'come in, or ls it best
to bo the loving wife and mother,
to take your scrubbing time lor
reading time and have a cheery welcome and helpful thought lor your
own when they come to you? I
know there are some big-boned women who can scrub all day without feeling exhausted, but lor one ol
those arc a hundred trail, delicate
women, who are so constantly and
unutterably weary that they know
nothing of the joy of living. The
woman is the heart ol the home.
If she is cross, miserable and dis-
spirltcd, there will ho littlo life and
true happiness within. Lot her do
her part, but let her refuse to labor
beyond lier strength. A wise, tender mother Is of more importance
thnn anything else in the world to
voung children, Let every mother
train herself to a wise neglect of unimportant things that she may be to
her own the embodiment ot sympathy, hope, gentleness, charity, wisdom and lovo.
