A  SUCCESSFUL  ADVERTISEMENT.
The Co-operative Stores hail a hall
page ad. in last week's Herald, and
speaking ol it one day this week,
Mr. McFarlane, tbe manager, said;
"There is no use ul talking, but that
ad.'did us more good tlmn any ad.
we have put in the paper. The'Herald is surely read by a lot ol people,
il wc can judge bv the returns that
we have received Irom that ad. alone.
Or course one must advertise something that will meet the wants of tho
people to get satisfactory returns.
That furniture credit sale proposition has done this. In a town
like Cranbrook where the people are
all wage earners and get ling their
pay by the month, some scheme like
that is just what they want to help
them out. on securing the necessary
articles lor housekeeping. We gave
the people the opportunity and the
Herald helped us tell them the glad
news. The result is that we have
been kept busy with customers on
this one line alone. The credit system we have arranged is a great
thing lor the wage earner and the.
Herald is the great medium to reach
the people, as evidently everybody
reads it.

THE WORST STORM

GREAT LOSS TO THE STOCKMEN
Nothing Like It Jnown Injhis
^Country~for the* Put ^
Forty Years ^s
It. L. T. Clalbraith, oue ol the ear
ly pioneers uf ibis country, who
came to this district about, forty
ycarii ago, was lu town ou Tuesday
ou his way from Feruie to Fori
Steele. Talking to a representative
ol the Herald, Mr. (ialbraitli said
that during the forty years that be
uad resided in litis district be bad
never/ swu such a whiter. There
uad bceu a few winters when it bad
uticn exceedingly cold, but only for a
short time, lie said that be was
talking to David Urillith. who preceded niiu in Vbls district by a few
years, and that Mr. Urillith bad
agreed with bim that it was positively Uie worst winter that tbe
country bail wen in forty-live years.
DEI.AYKU     HY        SNOW       AND
CATTLE.
0. P. TimI,iIt: and James Staples
arrived on the belated passenger
Wednesday morning, having been since
Sunday 'gel/tltttt from Medicine Hat to
(Jraiibronk. Mr. Staples said that
travelling this winter was a bitter
experience for auy one who bad indulged. "Why, il only took about
live or six inches of snow to stop a
twin,fas everywhere along the track
Llie snow packfd like ice. We were
DoUiered a good deal by hungry cattlo
that luui wandered. into the cuts to
get out of the deep snow. The poor
.TiMluii's were skinned and bhwding
up to the knees,, and they would
urowd ant« the railroad track to gel
nut of the deep snow and Mien refuse
to leave their haven of refuge. At
St. Marys bridge there was a yearling stuck between llie ties. The
iiiitkeman got the animal off and
started back lu the train when lit!
was attacked by a large steer that
ran bim around the front of the engine. The brakemaii sought safety
between two cars, but not before the
u.iiii.il had struck luui once witn its
tiorns. The brakemuu tried to scare
Uie animal with his lantern which
was caught on the long horn of the
steer and the last the passengers saw
of either lantern or steer, was as
they passed out of sight over ' tbe
prairie, the lighted lantern swinging
from one of the animals horns, like a
signal of danger."
Conductor Niblock brought In the
train yesterday morning and the
crew was changed here, a new one
taking the .train to the Landing, so
that the exhausted employees could
u;et a much needed rest.
Many of the boys who come In have
been on duty so many hours that
they have to book sick.
It takes an army of men to keep
the switches clear of ice and thus
ensure safety in t-he passing of
trains.
The cattle from the prairie drift
into the towns of Medicine Hat,
Macleod and   other  places   and drop
'lead on the streets.
Superintendent Brickson has had
the worst experience this winter in
his railroad career. There have been
days that be has had no rest whatever, but has been kept going nigbt
and day.

To keep the Crow clear the past
two weeks has been a hard task indeed. Superintendent Erlckson and
his assistants have been going day
and night with little or no rest, and
they have had to fight almost the impossible. The man who is not a
railroad man these days is lucky indeed.
O. II. Bremner, one ol the pioneers
ol Cranhrook, will leave this week
for Edmonton, where be expects to
make his home in the luturc. Mr.
Bremner was one of the early merchants ot Cranbrook, and his family
lias grown Irom boyhood to manhood
in this lown. Mrs. Bremner has
taven a prominent part in social and
church affairs in this city lor years,
and her absence will be keenly felt
by a large circle of friends and admirers. In fact the departure of the
Bremner family Irom Cranbtook
seems like taking one of the corner
posts ol the town away. But tbey
are going, and the Herald joins
with the hundreds ol Irlenris ot the
family in wishing them every happiness and prosperity wherever they
may locate, and congratula c the
community on securing a taiaiiy ol
such estimable qualities..

Mountain Lumbermen's association,
was approached yesterday with reference to the despatch Irom Ottawa
announcing that a commission was to
ne appointed to enquire into an alleged combination between t*Ue lumbermen of this province and Uie retail dealers of the northwest of Manitoba, to keep up the price ol lumber
and saying that a statement had
been made to the effect that the B.
0, lumbermen had a schedule ot
prices to which all members ot the
association must agree under penalty
of line or expulsion.
Mr, Wells denied most emphatically
that any such illegal combination
existed. There was no bard and
fast list of prices. He, as secretary, recommended that such and
such prices should be adopted but
there was neither fine nor expulsion
awaiting the firm that would not sell
its lumber according to its figures,
There was no combination between
the Mountain Lumbermen's association and the retail dealers of the
eastern provinces.
Mr. Wells said in part: "While
there has been a good deal said and
printed, especially by certain agitators and newspapers, with reference
to this matter, (which has been in
case in the northwest and iu Ottawa), all I can state is, that if a
commission to investigate tlie actions of the so-called lumber combine
is to be appointed, the sooner it is
done the better it will suit the manufacturers in British Columbia.
"The millmen of the province have
not only always complied with every
requirement of the law but have been
particularly careful at all times to
avoid taking any advantage of natural conditions "in establishing such
prices as could undoubtedly have been
obtained, but which might have been
considered exorbitant.
So far as the interior millmen
are concerned, there is no combine.
All that exists is an association
whose members meet at intervals to
discuss matters relative to their in-
dusky. In so fur us the accepted
meaning of a trust or combine is
understood, this association is very
far removed from any such illegal
body.
The situation at the present is
this: When the millmen met hero a
tew days ago it was perfectly recognized and understood that the stocks
in the northwest retail yards wen1
extremely light and the same condition prevailed, to a greater extent,
regarding the slock of lumber at the
various sources of supplv. Naturally such conditions must'lead to but
one conclusion and that is an enormous demand for lumber as the
spring opens up and shipping facilities can be obtained. In fact, it
was shown that at the present moment the orders placed for future delivery will actually consume every
foot of lumber now in sight, and as
the new stocks will not be-in shipping condition until, say, June,
nothing else but a temporary lumber
famine must be predicted. Notwithstanding these evident facts and the
largely increased cost of production
in lumber, both in logging operations
and in natural manufacture, the interior lumbermen, at their lost meeting, did not. make any general advances in lumber to speak of but, on
the contrary, evidenced a desire to
make the present prices stable for
some time to come.
"In order to meet this unprecedented demand every mill will be taxed
to its utmost this season and several new concerns will be started at-
well as others enlaced. There will
be, undoubtedly, an increase of twenty-five per cent, in supply and I may
say that this is the normal condition
of the progress of the lumber industry for some years past; the produc
tion of 1W6, for instance, being
about 20 per cent, over that of
1905.
"There has been no hint of
striction of output. In fact, many
of our mills are arranging to operate
night and duy during the coming season and this course is approved by
the others of the association as
meaning that somewhat of a load will
be removed from their shoulders.
"At the present minute, even
during Mie most severe winter ever
experienced in the west, the orders
being received by the mills, entirely
unsolicited, are so numerous that
they cannot be (riled even for ordinary lines of material, so that the
condition of things when tlie spring
business really opens up may be
imagined."
TAKING DOWN THE JUDGE.
Shortly after Judge Tillinghast
was appointed to the supreme court
of Rhode Island, he .went down to
one of the southern counties to hold
court for a week. He was well
satisfied with himself and bis dignity, and life seemed very well worth
living.
"Mary," he said to the waitress
at the hotel, "you've been in this
country—how long?"
"Two years, sorr," she told him.
"Do you like it?"
"Sure, it's all well enough, if you
like it," she answered.
"But, Mary," the judge continued,
"you have many privileges in this
country which you'd not have In Ireland. Now at home you would
never be iu a room with a justice ot
the supreme court and chatting familiarly with him."
"But, sure, sorr," said Mary, earnestly, "you'd never be a judge at
home."—Ex.

THE BIGGEST POOL.
Dr. Stevens, a prominent physician
of Hanover, \. IL, at one time delivered weekly lectures before the
students of Dartmouth Medical College on various matters pertaining to
human anatomy. One one particular
occasion, when the class was assembled, Dr. Stevens arose, and; taking from tlie table a rather abnormally large skull, stepped to the
platform, and holding the skull in
liis hand, at the same time unconsciously supporting his own head
with his left, opened his lecture with
the following remark:
"I suppose, gentlemen, I hold In mv
hand the head ol about the biggest
fool in the Statu of New Hampshire."
Imagine the uproar that followed
when from the extreme rear of the
room came: "Which hand, professor?"—El.
OK   INTEREST TO MINING MEN.   COL.  SAM

Of the total shipments made from
Uie 20 shipping mines at Cobalt, Ontario, during tne past two years, the
average assay content lias'been 8fill
ounces silver" per ton. The aggre
gate value of shipments has reached
the sum of $;i,lKM),lHlu. This is a
record second to no other silver camp
ever opened in the world. The record shipment was made from Nipis-
sing mines anil was 30 tons, netting
$95,000.
Cutting rock-drill cylinders is often due to lack of proper lubrication.
When a new drill is started up, a lubricant consisting of one pint of cylinder oil to one-fourth pound of
(lake graphite should he used, one
tablespoonful of lubricant for each
five-foot hole drilled, during the first
10 or 12 shifts. After this use a
gooil grade of drill oil, one spoonful
for each ten-foot hole drilled.
The world's reeoril fnr the amount
of ore taken from a mine in a specified time was broken in Risbee,
Arizona, when 1,187 cars were
hoisted from the Spray shaft in
seven hours. The enormity of this
performance, of course, can best be
appreciated hy men familiar witb
mining conditions, hut the fact that
it never lias been equalled is evidence
enough Unit it was remarkable. Dining one thirty minutes 103 cars were
hoisted and during the following fifteen minutes 53 more were hrought to
the surface, making a total of 156
cars in forty-live minutes. The average for the seven hours was 169 4-7
ears per hour.
The best possible way to lengthen
the life of a map is hy means of a
tracing of the same, which should
of tbe original. An accurate tracing
he used as much as possible in place
kept fully up to date will answer the
purpose of the original map in nearly alt the cases requiring its use. In
case of consultation by the varlods
officials it does just as well, if not
better, on account of the less bulk
to handle. Minor details and small
surveys.can he plotted directly upon
it. Fifty per cent, of the wear and
tear of a map will be taken off it by
the proper use of a tracing. The
making of a new tracing bears
comparison to that of making a new
map.
Japan held the sixth rank among
the copper producing countries of the
world, but she has risen to the
fourth & a single hound, the output
of copper being 5 per cent, of the
total production of the world. As
a petroleum producing country of the
world, Japan occupies the fifth rank,
being almost equal with India in the
output. Japan is one of the great
sulphur producing countries of the
world, being second in rank. With
regard to the output of antimony,
Japan lias up to the present occupied
third rank, but there is a tendency
for decrease of production every year
for this mineral.
To determine the minimum diameter of drums or pulleys around whicty
six-strand wire ropes may be worked,
Uie following rules will be found
useful: Ascertain the number of
wires which form the outside course
of the si rand. When the cores of
the strands are also of wire these
are not to be counted, only the outside wires. For six wires, square
the circumference of the rope and
multiply by 8; for nine wires square
the circumference of the rope and
multiply by 5; for twelve wires
square the circumference of the rope
and multiply by 1.75; for eighteen
wires square the circumference of the
rope and multiply by 1.50; for
twenty-one wires square the circumference of the rope and multiply by
1.25; for twenty-four wires square
the circumference only. The result
In each case gives the necessary
minimum diameter of drum or pulley
in inches. Larger diameter than these
should be adopted when practicable.

ACCIDENT AT 1'INCHER.
FORMER     RESIDENT     OF THIS
DISTRICT INJURED IN  EXPLOSION.
Pineher Creek, Jan. 30.—A very-
serious accident occurred at the
Pineher station hotel last night. It
appears that Messrs. Fan el A Rader
were fixing the gas machine early in
the evening. Mr. Farrel requested
his partner to place a lamp at the
end of what was supposed to be
empty pipe so that he could see down
it. At the moment this was done
there was a terrific explosion.. Mr
Farrel received the full force ot it in
his eyes. Dr. Gillispie was immediately sent lor and had the patient removed to the hospital and
everything possible was done for him
It is not known yet.whether he will

CARDSTON RANCH BRINGS   BIG
PRICE.
Thomas Moffat, of Cardston, while
siMMiding some davs in the city, concluded a deal by ' which he disposed
of his farm, known as the old Brown
ranch, lo a purchaser from Great
Kails, Mont. The sum of $85,000
wns turned over in the transaction.
Mr. Moffat worked the farm which
comprised more than 5,000 acres, for
twenty years. The price is in excess
of $16 an acre. The purchaser, who
has been in town for several days,
has already ordered $10,000 worth of
machinery which he intends to use in
working the extensive property,—

lone.    Tinkering with tiny thing i
dangerous thing, ami changes    every
five years or so in such matters
organization will ruin any thing.
Tlie Imperial forces are all right
from Soutb Africa where I lived in
the houses of men—and very good
fellows, Indeed, they nre—who {ought,
ns at Coleiiso, Lady smith and other
places. Captain ' Kruger, for in-
tance, who lias just, come back from
serving witb the Hermans in East.
Africa, Boor as he is, has no manner of douht now as to the immense
superiority of the British soldier. He
saw our fighting at ColeitsO, and he
that the Boers had 25,0110 men
against Bullet's 21,000, lie said
the position could not be taken, and
no men could have done belter than
the British did, anil he has a very
high opinion of Gen. Btlller a.s a sol-
ilier. Another nf the Uoer leaders,
Major Pretorius, told me much the
same thing. Thev all knew tho
British soldier to lie a fine, active
keen man and highly intelligent, and
from what 1 saw aiid know of him I
can say that he was and is so. We
have in the South African oonstabu-
try four or I've thousand «if them,
nd no one could wish for better
men.
John J Bull gets his eyes open when
he goes abroad ami when be lights ho
tights properly. And that is as true
nf the British navy as of the army.
I am a son of lhc captain of ihe
royal navy, who, strange to say,
fought under Nelson. My father was
mie of the last men landed in a
hostile manner on the const of
France from tbe Arelhusa. It seems
strange but it won't seem so strange
if I say that I have a brother ST
years old to-day.
"With regard' to the auxiliary forces. I kimw the Canadian volunteers are splendid men. Why, when
wc were raising the Strathcnna
Horse in the northwest, we were on
our way to Ottawa five days from
the commencement of recruiting, and
the men came from Yukon. One ot
them was an only son who had made
a large fortune" in the Yukon; yet
such was his spirit that he would
come, and he died in Smith Africa
He was one of the little company of
Canadians who were called on by
150 Boers to surrender, but would
not give up their post. Every man
of them died. After exhausting their
ammunition they took to their revolvers ami killed numbers of Boers
at close quarters. One of this little
gallant company of five was from the
Old Country and the other four were
Canadians. Yet so tender were
these northwest men with the women
and children that in every tiwn the
provost marshal! selected us to do
Uie police work. , He had many
northwest mounted police officers, nf
course, among us who understood
how to maintain law and order, and
the provost marshals told me that
no soldiers were more orderly and
regular in their conduct, nor better
able to do police worki than were the
Canadians In South Africa."
And so Colonel Steele went on wlthj
his quiet but thrilling narrative. The
occasion was not one of tbe great
dinners of the Canada club, it was
just one of its ordinary monthly festivals where perhaps sixty people
gathered round the table to talk to
each other and to listen to speeches.
The Bishop of Qu'Appellc was among
the guests of the evening, and he contributed not a little to the general
humor by recalling pleasant, memories of tho 34 years he has spent ir
the northwest." Sir George Newnes
was another guest, and Mr. J. G.
Colmer, just returned from a lengthy
Canadian tour, was in the chair.
Such opportunities of pleasant conference between all here who are
interested in Canada arc of the
greatest value and interest.

I'll just double it, uml then send you
my own cheek for your half." ' In

at a typical mountain house and asked if I could spend the night. Receiving a favorable answer, 1 entered
Ihe house, found the family to consist of the man, his wife and five
children, all of whom were barefooted, the oldest ot them was a girl,
about fifteen years of age. They had
no cooking stove, but the mother
prepared a very nice meal, cooking it
on coals of fire on the hearth.
After supper, we older folks were I
sitting around the fire, the children!
standing around tin hearth. The

Not n few ol them are to be occupied
young people, who have lately
i- through tiie ordeal of a wedding
ch and marriage ceremony. As a
matter of course there lias been a
great ileal nf talking "under the
roses" about tbe location, the style
f architecture, the quality and
quantity of furniture to In* purchased, and how they intend to live when
l bey lake possession of this modernized Eden. Oh, we wish we could
impress it on their minds that. it
doesn't matter so much whether the
house be built after Gothic or pioneer
tyle of architecture, whether tbe
furniture is of fashionable make or
home manufacture; whether the walls
arc hung with costly tapestry or
with family wardrobe; if love and
virtue cement; the family circle, it
would lie home iu the truest sense
nf the word. The body is but, the
dwelling place of the soul, .so, likewise the house is but the tenement of
the home. Wc cannot all have perfect forms, ami classic features, but
we can have pure, beautiful spirits;
we cannot all have elegant, richly
furnished houses, but we can bave
sunny, pleasant homes.
(One has said: Do not keep the

words while their ears can hear them,
and while their hearts can be thrilled
by them. The (lowers you mean lo

they leave them. Let us learn tn
anoint our friends before hand for

Kindly tears, though they fall thick

And    words   of    praise,   alas!   can

To  lift the    shadows from a   life

THE JOY OF HOME.
Home life is the source of exquisite blessing, There is nothing more
attractive, refining and unlit ling
than iis simple joys and fireside
pleasures. The world has pleasures
gaj and bright but nothing exceeds
llie joy nf home and bliss of our own
fireside. li is tlie place nfgladness

We cross the iloorslll ami enter it*
threshold to find the garden of paradise. We cannot be indifferent to
the sweet attractions, simple plea-
sutes, pleasant conversation and
sweet songs of the family circle.
None are mine blight, more pure and
mine more like the love of highest
heaven. II. is more like heaven than
any spot on earth.
Some nne has said, "It is a special
creation ol Christianity." There is
no other spol on earth so dear. How
men long for its quiet and repose.
"I long tn see bnnie," (eels the sailor
lad as hi* climbs the mast amid the
storms on the ocean wave. "I am
going homo," says the business man
a (he bars the door and shuts the
blinds after a day of vexatious cares.
"Home.'' shouts the school boy
when the day's studies are-over, "I
miisl Iiui ty home," feels the lond
mother as she passes along the
crowded street hinking of the ones
who need her watchful care.
" "lis sweet to bear: the watch
dog's honest hark,
Hay (leap-mouthed welcome ns    we
draw near home;
■Tla sweet to know there is an    eye
will mark
Our .coming and look brighter when
we come."
READING THE SCRIPTURES.
It is certainly wisdom to use common sense in the rending ot the
scriptures! We get any other hook
nnd we open it and wc say: "Now,
what, does this book mean to teach
me? It Is a bonk on astronomy;
it will teach tne astronomy. It is a
book on political economy; it will
leach me political economy." Taking up the Bible, do we ask ourselves
what it means to teach? It means
to do just one thing: got th* world
converted and get us all to heaven.
That is what it proposes to do. But
instead nf that, wc go into the Bible
aa botanists to pick flowers, or wo
g<» un pugilists to get something to
fight other christians with, ot we i'o
as logicians trying to sharpen our
mental faculties for a better argu-l
meat, and we do not like this about

WHY SUCH INTEREST?
(New York Evening World.)
Why is tin-re so much interest tak-
n in the Thaw case' If the trial
were to be held in Madison Square
garden the crowd would fill that vast
hall to the doors. If Thaws wife
were merely lo sit ou a stage for exhibition purposes the gale receipts
would pay her husband's counsel fees.
She and he and the family affairs of
the Thaws are mutters of general
conversation among people, women
especially, to whom the procedure of
the criminal law is rarely of any Interest.
For one man to shoot another man
is nothing unusual or remarkable.
There are many shootings, occasional
poisonings and a few hangings. All
told, these amount to only a fraction
of the railroad accidents, anil hardly
make* Up as long a death roll In tho
whole United States as the Kingston
earthquake.
The interest in the Thaw ease evidently does not come from the men;
fact of the shooting, hut from llie
preceding euviroumeul. Thaw is
what hundreds of thousands of other
young men would In* bad they been
brought up as ho was brought up.
His father spent bis life's efforts accumulating a fortune to leave tu bis
children and omitted tn pay attention
to the kind of children to whom tbe
fortune would be left. Instead of
training his children he trained his
bank account.
When Harry Thaw was a small boy
and went to school his fn iher's
wealth procured him pet lings when
he should have received a sound
thrashing. He was allowed to lavish money as if it, grew ou trees.
Every folly was condoned. When bo
got drunk and destroyed property the
I'iilsbuig police were equally lenient,.
He could not bave been more
thoroughly spoiled bad the process
lieen deliberate.
His wife was a chorus girl somewhat above the average in looks if
uot in morals. How many girls today envy her and how many of the
readers o[ the descriptIon ol her
dresses, her jewelry and her manner
nf living past uml present are women
who commingle with ihe envy Llioic
interest?
Whether Thaw is convicted or acquitted does not make much inherence in the lessons tbe whole history
qiiAv. uetu V 'sjipu-n osva ai[) jo
more intelligence and judgment would
never have married as Thaw did. But
then a man of intelligence and judgment would nut have conducted bis
courtship by wrapping $&u bills
around tbe stems of every rose iu a
corsage bouquet, and he would not
have bad the associations iu bring
him to Thaw's present plight.
The i'ittsburg crop of tawdry millionaires have much to answer fur
to the whole social order of the
United States. The manifestations
in the Corey divorce, the Schwab
visit to Monte Carlo and the Thaw
case are all of a kind and resulting
from the same cause.
Irresponsible wealth is as demoralizing and as dangerous as irresponsible power. It begins by corrupt
ing its possessor, it proceeds by
corrupting everything that can be
corrupted within iis possessor's
touch. It thus breeds a kind of
virus ' which spreads tn thu social
system and requires sterling qualities on the part of tbe mass of the
people to resist Rs insidious destruction of proper standards and right
living.
Thaw as a poor man would excite
little attention. The glamour of the
situation would be absent. Murder
iu itself has no charm to attract
anybody. Vice in itself has no intrinsic allurements.
Back of all the interest there is a
certain envy—on the part of men
that tiiey have not the money to
spend that Thaw had and the opportunities that Thaw abused, on the
part of the women that their lifetime
savings would not pay for Mrs.
Thaw's dresses and jewels, that their
beauty has never been such as to attract a great artist, and that their
lives have been too full of the monotony which is so completely absent
from the careers of Harry Thaw and
Evelyn NesbK.
OREAT CANADIAN     MERCHANT
11 U>    BEEN    IW VLIDEU  FOR
\I\N^   YI.AKS.
Toronto, Feb. 1.—Timothj Eaton,
bead of Uie great department store
here, died this morning uf pneumonia.
The dead merchant had been a cripple
lor many years, but in spile nl bis
age and infirmity, was very active oi
mind until his death. lie was a
familial sight to shoppers in the
meat store here, being wheeled about
in ait invalid chair.
Mr, Eaton's wealth is variously estimated at from two tn ten million
ilnllais. lb- leaves a wife and four
children: J. C. Eaton, vice-president
of the company, \\. F, Eaton, rnanag-
ei of lhc works at Oshawa, and Mrs.
Mm aside and Mrs. Burden, both of
Toronto. Tho funeral will probably
lake place on Saturday.
Timothy Katun was the greatest
merchant in Canada. He emigrated
from Ireland a poor hoy. His first
business    venture    was at  Kirk ton,
a      bklCkWOods hamlet. lie
[lacked his first shipment to his store
heilhaituw. Later he opened
business In London, tint. From
there he came lo Toronto.     His first
ton-     was a      tinv    uue on  Front
treet.
Later he opened on Queen stieet in
store that now forms puit uf the
Simpson store. After that he st-cui-
ed laiger quarters acioss the street.
To the left and rear and right he extended his premises, until to-day it
occupies practically the whole block.
It overspread that block, into ihe
next une across Albert street, where
liis factories are. Across James
street from it is another block.
North again is another, all occupied
with tiie colossal business his genius
built. He bad fixed principles from
which he never departed. Two years
ago he opened the largest store in
the west at Winnipeg,
In religion be was a (Methodist, and
a staunch supporter of that connection.

"Then tell uie your mother's

NO BEE HIVE.
Mr. and Mrs. Jones, a newly married couple, had just moved into a
very crowded lodging-house. His
wife, just returned from a shopping
trip, knocked at what she thought
was her husband's room, and said,
"Honey, let me in." Rereivfng no
answer she called again a little
louder, "Honey, honey, let me in."
No answer. Again she called,
"Honey, honey, please let me in."
In a minute a deep masculine voice
was heard to say: "Aw, shut up!
this ain't no bee-hive; it's a bath-
room."--EX|
