HOT TIME AT OTTAWA
Ottawa, April 2.—The most sensational scene of the many sessions in
the House of Commons occurred lo.
night, when Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
lion. Geo. E. Foster clashed in a
healed exchange of plain-spoken opinions, whicli al ono lime threatened to
require the intervention ot the scr-
geaiit-of-uiius. As on previous occasions, Mr. Foster's facility in saying
bitter and cutting things led him u
step loo far. In concluding, at 0
o'clock, his speech ou the opposition's resolution, proposed yesterday
by C. J. Doherty, demanding the appointment of a commission to investigate all lhe departments of the
government, similar to that conducted in regard to the marine department, Mr. Foster had the temerity
to impute to Sir Wilfrid motives of
personal profit in connection with the
fact thai as via the men lound guilty by tbe Cnssels commission had
not been prosecuted iu the criminal
courts.
Sir Wilfrid, in answering tonight,
pave the ex-finance minister a reply
iu kind, ami the spirit displayed on
both sides of the House led lo a dc-
cidedlj exciting half hour before lbe
squall passed over. It is safe to
sav that as a result of the premier's countercheck to Mr, Foster, this
master of invective, who is himsell
open to attack, will be a little more
.-areful In future in steering dear of
making an\ charges against the personal honesty of the premier.
The chief result of the whole debate on tho resolution, which was at
early hour tbis morning voted
down by a large government ma-
tv. will be the impression left
the public mind that tho opposition's most caustic and effective
speaker, Mr. Borden's first lieutenant
u the House and his prospective finance minister, gol a richly merited
find well deserved dress wn from
the premier, whose record both in
private and public life as well will
bear comparison with that of the
ex-manager ol the Union Trust company.

THE CHAPMAN-ALEXANDtK REVIVAL CAMPAIGN
(By the Publicity Committee.)
The opera house was filled to the
doors last Sunday night on tho
occasion of tho opening service of the
revival campaign. The ushers had
extra chairs in readiness and these
were called lot before the service bad
really begun. Mr. J. W. Reynolds
wus delighted with the choij prao-
tlcc which look place in tin' afternoon, and he quickly proved himsell
a master leadei and conductor. Thc
whole ol Uie stage has been built
up toi the convenience of the singers,
and they certainly presented a fine
appearance us they rose lor tlio first
In nm at the cull of the lender. Mr.
Reynolds has a peculiar and happy
knack of conducting, and his frequent
alls to the audience, the gallery, and
sometimes the men, and then the women to sum portions ol tho gospel
sours by themselves, and then the
choir responding with the chorus or
some other portion, reminds mie of
tbo antipboiiul methods of long ago,
but nevertheless tho effect is sinking and effectual, and tl was generally remarked utter the service ihat thu
leader und the choir hud rendered
splendid service. Mr. Reynolds nu-
lered two line solos iu a clear and
winsome manner.
Dr. Toy spoke on the subject ol
spiritual'life ami death, basing his
remarks on the text: "He that bath
the Son hath lite; aud ho thai hath
not tlie Sou of God hath not life."
.lohn 5-12. Tho Dr. does not play
with words. He cleared his own
path by saying that ho would deliver
his message according to the Word of
Ood, he would not use anv flue
phrases, nor attempt to sugar the
facts. Ho believed that any man or
woman who had not come into right
relationship witb Jesus Christ would
be banished from the presence of God
forever. That was the riicssage he
bad to declare, whether it found general agreement with his hearers or
uot. The marked attention throughout the whole of tho discourse argued
in favor of the doctor, aud thero is
evory evidence that the meetings
will gather sl length as the time goes
on. On Monday nichl there was a
mood attendance, with a largo choir.
Services are also being hold in the
afternoons in the Presbyterian church
on Tuesdav, Wednesday, Thursday
and Fridavs at .'U0.
NEW LIVERY FIRM
The City Livery was taken over
yesterday by Messrs. W. A. Whitmore
and W. heir. These gentlemen have
purchased the business from Grant
Belangee, who has boon running it
successfully (or some time past. Both
Mr. Whitmore and Mr. Kerr are
well and favorably known in the city,
neither of them being tenderfoots.
Mr. Whitmore was in the ''very business here before and always made
good. Mr. Kerr is a young man who
bas   a    large    amount     of business
savy" aud a host of friends. Considering the fact thai the boys
havo fourteen of lho best drivers
nnd saddle noises iu lho country and
au outfit of rigs that are second
lo none in the west, it is a cinch that
thoy will do a good business. Thev
toll tlie Herald that lheir terms will
In1 reasonable and thai they will do
lheir verv hest to oblige the public.
If tbey do this, and they will, their
success is assured.
BOXING CONTEST
,ast Friday evening at thc Auditorium "Kid" Scaler, the lightweight
champion of tbe Northwest and Ed-
dic Marino, of Calgary, mot iu a ton
round boxing contest. Before the
main event tliere were three preliminary bouts. Thc first was a throe
round contest between Harry Bathie
and George Kerr, both of this city.
The boys went at it hammer and
tongs and at the end of the three
rounds the contest was declared a
draw. The   second   was a four
round go between "Kid" Lacey and
"Young" Miller, the lighting barber,
both Cranbrook boys. lt was a
good bout, but at the end ot tlte
third round Miller, being out of wind,
threw up the sponge and Lacey was
declared the winner. With more
training Miller would have no doubt
made a better showing. The third
preliminary was undoubtedly the
best. It was between "Fighting
Paddy" Madigan and Hay Robson.
For the first three rounds Paddy had
distinctly the best of it, Robson
showing every sign of punishment.
lu the fourth round, however, although Madigan seomingly was winning, Robson landed two blows on
the wind which put Paddy out, he
taking lhe count. Frank Dickinson
refereed the preliminary bouts to the
entire satisfaction of ihe Inrge audience.
The main event was refereed by
•lames Bates and was a good exhibition nil through. It was easv to
see Ihat Sealer had the best of it and
It is probable that the result would
not have been the same if six ounce
iu plaee of ten ounce gloves hnd been
used. Marino put up a hard fight
and showed himself a lough little
boxer, but he was outclassed by
Sealer, who was given the decision
nn points at the end nf the tenth
round.
Tlw Spokesman-Review, nf Spokane,
savs that it Is probable thnt a ten
thousand dollar purse will be hung
out in Cranbrook for a trn between
"Battling" Nelson ami "Kid" Scaler
and Ihat Scaler wanls a $2,5li0 side

STANLEY HHONTEMPT       j
FERNIE LEDGER EDITOR CITED
FOR  Ills CRITICISM vV
JUDGE WILSON. ■
Vancouver, April 6.—Tbo full court'
ibis morning, Hunter, Irving and
Morrison .sitting, issued an order directing tt. s. Stanley, publisher ot
the Fernio District Ledger, to appear
hero on April 18th l<i show cause
wh) he should not be committed for
contempt ol court. The action rests
upon an article appearing in the
Ledger allegedly reflecting on the
conduct ol a Kootenay case by
Judge Wilson. The case was that ol
Mean, who was brought before him
niter the Fernie lire for taking money
under false pretences in connection
with the Globe lusurauco company
which went out of business as a result of the conflagration, Judge
Wilson acquitted Dean.
"It is just as vicious an attack as
could be made on a judge," said
Deputy Attorney General Maclean iu
asking for the order, utter reading
the following extract from the publication forming the busts of nation:
"If vou In-long to a few secret
[internal societies and happen io bo
on the liglit side ol politics, you can
commit anv crime iu the calendar
with the certain knowledge that
when you come before lhe bench
where justice is supposed to lie dispensed, you will be acquitted, a la
Dean and the Globe."
"The suggestion was tliat Judge
Wilson acquitted thu man because nu
belonged to the same secret society
or because he belonged to the same
political parly. Nothing more outrageous in the way of comment
could appear than that," said Mr.
Maclean.
The Chief Justice—"Did vou consider the advisability of proceeding
by indictment?"
"Yes; hut 1 thought that when a
judge was insulted in this gross way
Ibis was the proper procedure. It
i.s u case that strikes right at tbe
root of the administration of justice," replied the deputy attorney
general.
The only similar case recalled bv
local lawyers was that of William
McAdains some years ago, who, while
conducting a Sandon paper offuuslve-
Iv criticized a member of the bench,
lie was committed on refusing to
apologize, but a few weeks of orison
confinement led to the demanded apo-
Ingy.

Lethbridge Herald, April 5.—The

Lewis, ihe International ptesldoat oi
tlio t. M, tt. of A. has ordinal the

men referendum vote. At the mu-
clusiun of the conference Lewis
Mochetl wired lhe particulars tu
i'resident Lewis aud received a a-
piy to the above effect. President
ahcrman has had a similar message
since April 1st and yet he has continued the strike, paying no attention in the uidci Irom headquarters.
Thu telegram given below was received by Lewis Stockett on April
l, bui n was uot given out lot publication until permission to do so bad
been received frum President Lewis.
That permission has lieen received
ami lhe messages are today published.
Sherman has been assuring the miners that they hau- the support ot
the Inteinational Board in their
si like, bui according iu this telegram it looks as if that support
would not nu forthcoming. Why
President Sherman should continue
tiie strike alter receiving orders from
President Lewis in sign the agreement will lie the subject uf an explanation hy him.
At the conclusion of the conference
on March ;ilst, when President Sherman refused to sign the ratified
agreement Lewis Stockett, president
ol the Western Coal Operators' Association sent the following message
lo Mr. Lewis:
Macleod,  Alta., Mar. 31,  1909,
T. J. Lewis, President,
United Mine Workers ot America,
Indianapolis, Ind., U.S.A.:
Afiei negotiations extending over
two weeks at Macleod and at which
National Board Member Morgan was
present as yuur representative, scale
committee arrived at an agreement
and disbanded. Conference adjourned to enable referendum vote of miners to bo taken. Substantial majority voted lu adopl agreement, but at
meeting today arranged for bv president of District No. 18 and President of Western Coal Operators' Association fur the purpose of completing agreement as arranged lor before
adjournment, President Sherman admitted that referendum vote was in
favor of agreement but declined to
complete same, alleging that as be
had in tlie meantime made a different
agreement with tbe Crows Neat Coai
company, who are not members of
our association, he must have tbat
agreement and that he would sign
no   other, and     thereupon withdrew
from the meeting with his associates.
This action a complete surprise to
the operators whose representatives
wore present to execute agreement.
Wo rely upon you to protect the re-
putation uf your organization and
prevent the repudiation of an
agreement by its loeal officers.
Lewis Stockett,
President    tt'estei n    Coal Operators'
Association.

up the Herald from Frank with re-
•■aid to the telegram published yes-
leiday, from President T. J. Lewis,
say tue that the district othcers bad
been not tiled to sign up the agreement. He says that the statement
is absolutely untrue. "No such instructions have been received by any
district officer." Asked if be could
account lur the telegram published,
Mi. Sherman declared that lie knew
nothing of it more than tic saw in
the Herald. This morning he received d message from the international
headquarters saying that a member
of tin- international Board was coming to consult with tbe District
board.
In reply to an Inquiry as to how
things were going with' the strikers,
lit- said that everything looked very
lavurable but fat could not say how
iirtig the strike would last. "Every
local union,'7 he said, "has upheld the
action of tlio officers." There is to be
a meeting of the District Board at
Frank tomorrow.

LUMBER DEVELOPMENT.
AMERICAN     CAPITALISTS     INTERESTED.
Vancouver,  April  L—Private     advices to   Vancouver are to the efiect
ihal   capitalists   uf   Minnesota, Wisconsin,   Michigan,   New   York,    and
i tali are investing heavily in timber
lauds iu British Columbia   aud   tbat
in addition to the   hundreds of thousands   of  dollars  already paid    tor I
tracts, at least $l,0UU,0l)0 worth    ot .
timber land is under option.      Most'
if the owners will erect sawmills on
their lands.     This   is   believed     by i
tue to moan   that there will   be  a
material   reduction    iu   thc tariff on >
lumber   from    Canada to the United
States.
.Minneapolis investors have obtained
title lo the IB,000 acres of fir ami
spruce timber at Cowichan Lake on
Vancouver Island, the price reported
being $-15,000 cash. Fourteen hund-
nd aeres of timber aluug the lino of
tho Great Northern railway in the
handley district were sold lor $30.0u0
to investors of Now Westminster, B.
who will erect a mill. It is
estimated the tract contains 30,000,-
000 feet of timber.
Andrews Howatt, ol Salt Lake
City, Utah, bus just acquired 6,500
us iu British Columbia for $65,-
000. The same buyer also purchased
fuur sections tor $55,000 on Broughton Island, including some of the
tinest timber in the province,
tt. It. Welch and B. T. Lyons, of
Now York, who recentlv bought thc
limits of    the Jordan River   Timber
mpanv, a New York corporation,
located on the southwestern shore of
British Columbia, on Vancouver Island, which borders on the Straits
uf San Juan do Fueu, have sold
their holdings to members of the
Michigan Pacific Lumber company uf
(irand Rapids, Mich. A standard
gunge railway for facilitating the
letting out of the logs also figures in
Ihe proposition. The tract com-
prises 1532 acres of crown grants and
31,3(10 acres of timber leases. This
is estimated to contain 2,500,000,(H10
feet, according to the report of J. P.
(Irayton, an American cruiser. The
new' eompanv is incorporateh with a
capital of $1,500,000.
American capitalists recently acquired immense tracts of timlicr lands
about Cowichan Lake, formerly hold
hy the Canadian Pacific railway company as a part of the W. «fc N.
grant. Thc sale of thc land is conditional on the early completion of
the railway which the C.P.R. agreed
t o build to the holdings. Thc
amount involved in thc transaction
is said to be nearly $1,000,000. The
location of the line has been com.
pletcd.
THE ANCIENT WHIPPING POST
FERNIE
A. E. Watts, J.p., of Wattsburg,
spent the whole day taking evidence
iu camera charging a great strapping
young man with attempting to entice a young girl of tender vears,
and afterwards boasting of what he
could do. The culprit confessed
when confronted with the evidence.
Mr. Watts gave him his choice of the
lash or prison, and for the sake of
sparing his parents the disgrace, he
chose the lash.
At Wattsburg is a great flag staff.
The culprit was not tied, but commanded to take off coat and vest,
and place his hands on the post. Mr.
tt'atts personally applied the lash,
each stripe calling forth yells for
mercy.

APPRECIATION.
(Moyie Leader.)
Last week the Cranbrook Herald
published the lirst number ot its
twelfth volume. From almost the
very first issue the paper has been
under the personal direction of F. E.
Simpson, and iu those eleven years
be has built up one of thc best weekly publications in the country. Cranhrook has heen good to the Herald,
but Cranbruok should not lose sight
of tbe fait that thc Herald has been
good to Cranbrook. The Herald
says its aim will be to make volume
Vi better than any former volume.
If this is possible vou may rest assured that the "Old Man" and his
able lieutenant  "Hutch" will do it.
If vou select your slmes with a

is a sign that vou are grnwinc;

TRAVELS, HIS MINI) BLANK.
Ucllingham, Wash., April 5.—The
ease of Kenneth Martin, a wealthy
hotel proprietor, of Rossland, B. C,
is attracting attention amongst physicians here. Martin left the hotel
presumably to attend to business
matters tn Spokane, returning by
way of Seattle to Vancouver, where
he was to meet his wife. Evidently
the man's memory has been a complete blank since he left home on the
trip a few days ago, for when taken
from the Great Northern train,
which arrived here Sunday he was
unconscious and has since declared
that he is still in Rossland, although now in a local hospital. The
man apparently is in perfect physical
condition, but a peculiar affliction of
llie kidneys is said to he the cause
of his strange state of mind.

King's Business, ba*- been established
under tlie direction of the general

Shearer and Rev. Br. Gordon (Ralph
Connor) as thc head officers and already the regular mailing list extends trom Halifax to Vancouver.
The great organization which bas
brought this wonderful scries of
meetings into existence throughout
this big hold has certainlv accomplished a wonderful feat of organization. What the result for good will
be cannot bo foretold, but that it
will justlfv tho labor exerted need no
lunger to t>*' feared.
The strike situation remains tbe
same and there seems to be no
settlement in sight.

• JOHN HULL PLAYS APltlL FOUL
ON UNCLE SAM.
Snu Francisco, April 2.—Britishers
today are immcnsi-ly amused over
John Hull playing an April-tool joke
on Uncle Sam yesterday, when the
llritish minimal Slieaiwaler ol Uiu
British Columbia station .slipped into Uic Sun Francisco harbor from
the south diiMtiR the early hours ot
tlie morning, amidst a slight lug,
und anchored unobserved hy the United Stales lookouts on land and sea.
At the military reservations and in
shipping circles thev are still wondering how it all happened, whilst the
merry crowd of British blue-jackets
under command of Capt. Crawford,
is making merry of the incident
whereby tlic vigilance of Uie United States lookouts proved unequal
to tlie Shearwater's tactics in gaining shelter unobserved.
Nearly live hours after lhe British
fighting ship hud steamed in through
Die Golden Oale under the very nose*
of the lookouts, aud anchored half
a mile ofi the ferry building, a passing boatman was surprised in tho fog
to come upon her grey hull. Careful
inspection showed that King Edward's gunboat Shearwater was lying peacefully at anchor in San Francisco bay, A moment later the sunlight cutting through the mist
brought her graceful lines into closer
vision and tlie gunboat's commander
put off in a pinnace for shore to pav
his respects to British Consul Hcarn.
Totally oblivious to the fact that
a foreign warship haa steamed into
port, tlte American marine lookouts
admitted the joke was on them. During their short stay the British residents arc hurriedly arranging plans
for entertaining their countrymen.

turning point in tbe fate of the
wist organization over which, at

In the thousands of army barracks

llootli s possible successor, for    one
thing is fairly certain, the time    is
rapidly approaching   when  that  will
have io be announced.     Most people
imagine that no   one else but Uram-
woll Booth, the general's eldest si
and   present    cbief-of-staff    of   the
Army, can succeed to the head of the
igaiii/ation   when the great moving
spirit has   departed.       Uut, on the

OXFORD WINS.
Putney, April 3.—In one of thc
most exciting contests in the history
of the famous inter-varsity race, Oxford won from Cambridge today by
three lengths and a half in lt) minutes and fifty seconds. Had the
Oxonians been pressed at the
linish the time would have been
much faster. As far as Barnes'
bridge it was anyone's race, but
from thence the superior style and
strength of the dark blues began to
toll,
Cambridge had the heaviest crew
tbey ever put on the river but disappointed their supporters who were
betting two to one on their chances
ut the start. By winning Oxford
broke the sequence ol three Cambridge victories and prevents D.CH.
Stewart, the Cambridge captain,
creating a new record by stroking a
boat four times to victory.
At the start Oxford stroked 111) and
Cambridge ;jn, the former getting oil
with a slight lead, but the light
blues overhauled the nose between
them at Hammersmith Bridge, the
crews were on   even terms.
From there tu Barnes a stroke ol
AH to the minute began to tell on
Stuart's stroke of 'AH to the minute
and Oxford drew ahead again until
the spectator's boat got in the way.
Oxford were forced to swerve a lot
and Cambridge pulled up level. Opposite Thoiney croft's, however,
Stuart, by a well-judged spurt pulled
uj) level again.
Incitement was now terrific along
the shore. Passing Barnes boats
were even, but from there to Oxford
begun to show their superiority and
better staying qualities and at Barnes bridge daylight showed between
Ihem. The light blues gave unmistakable signs of weakening under tho
heart-breaking ordeal but gamely
[struggled to pull up to their rival.
The Oxonians, however, came right
away and were never headed. The
time this year was slower than last
1 year, which was 11) min., Ill seconds.
.This was lbe 00th inter-varsity bout
race.

The enjoyment of a meal depends

days it was arranged that the general should receive ull the royalties
from the sale ol books published by

royalties amounted to some thousands of pounds yearly. The general, one day, announced before a council meeting that as these royalties
had amounted to so considerable a
sum he had decided to turn them over
to thc army. That does not look
like a verv grasping policy.

OBSERVATIONS

liven the most rabid  Conservative
must admit that the Hon. (ieorge K.
Foster showed in a very bad light in
thu passage of arms ho had with Sir
Wilfrid Laurier in the Dominion
House last week. Air. Foster on voiced the aid of thc chair against members saying "disagreeable or ollen-
sive things." If there is anyone in
Canadian public life who lias a hitler
tongue, it is tho .same George E.
Foster. Sir Wilfrid did not appeal
to tbe limit and it is rather amusing
to read of the efforts of the speaker
io smooth over tbe discussion with-
0"t being compelled to "call down"
the lirst minister of tin1 crown.
Sir Wilfrid's franknoss in refusing lo
take cover under a construction ol bis
words which he had not really intended, and in bowing to tbe rule
against bim, cannot but hv admired,
'i'he whole thing was au unfortunate
incident aud one that seldom occurs in the Canadian Mouse of Commons.
Lord Strathcona writes the Canadian government that he i.s anxious
to take part in the good work of
training the youth of the Dominion,
and maKcs a gift of $250,0flil to cn-
couru'c physical and military drill in
Canada's public schools.

The Hoard is doing nil in its power
to heln you—get in line and help the
board.
Those interested in the raising nf
poultry should read A. H. Smith's
article in this issue of the Herald.
It contains a lot nf Information.
What Cranbrook wants and should
have is a settlers rate from Spokane
and  stop-over    privileges  (or     those.

Last night there was a party ul live

The best of authority on sill aud

British Columbia is suUtid for Iruit

tiiat Kast Kootenay will prove u veritable gold mine along these lines.

The total value for the yjear was
(151.05 uud the average for thc year
per lieu was $3.02. Eggs sold at
,iii cents and 40 cents in January,
Ml and 35 cents iu February, 35
cents the rest of the year until October, when tbey were 50 cents and
.November, 711 cents, and 1 sold a few
dozen pullets' eggs at 110 cents last
week (December) which is the best
I ever got iu open market.
In reviewing the above it will be
noticed that lhe 28 hens retained to
the last gave practically a dollar
and a half •-*■ head after .July 1st, in
lliis was a lot of eight old hens, two
and three years each, that had raised
chicks and in August, Septcmher and
October these eight gave, on several
different weeks, upwards of forty
eggs per week, one week giving forty-seven and another forty-six. This
was easily remarked because they
had never returned to tne hen house
after brooding, but occupied a stable
at a distance where they had been
sept as a special breeding pen in the
spring.
I cannot say what cost ot feed was,
as I fed wheat in the straw entirely
last year, no mashes or condiments
whatever, but plenty of mangels and
green bone in winter with lots of
crushed bone and grit at all times
and free range in Summer. When
buying feed, however, In former
years, it cost about a dollar and a
half per bead ami should be a bit
less when raised at home.

WHAT THE ADVANCE AGENT
SAYS.
When it is said that Florence Roberts, who has played a remarkably
varied line of parts with always
superior artistry, has won the surpassing success of her career in her
new play "The House of Bondage,"
there remains uo room for pessimism
regarding the result of ber forthcoming engagement at the Auditorium
on Saturday, April 17th. It is common talk in theatrical circles that
.Miss Roberts has in "The House ot
Bondage" the dramatic "find" of the
season. The work Is by Sevmour
Ohermer, a brilliant English dramatist, who is said not only to have
evolved a strikingly original theme,
but also In have clothed it in remarkably beautiful language. In
point of construction, also, Mr. Ohermer is said to have demonstrated
the value of numerous revolutionary
ideas of his own.
Miss Roberts iu "The House of
Bondage," has a role in which she is
seen at her best, and the Roberts
best is a dramatic value to conjure
wilh. John Cort has iriven thc star
a strong support, among the players
iuncaring the well-known names of
Arthur Forrest, Thurlow Bergen,
Kent Hosworth, Harrr Olbbs, Ann
Warrington am] Marv Bertram).

DEATH OF HENRY PATMORE.
Died, at Craubrook, B.C., on
Thursday, April 1st, 1909, Henry
Patmore, aged tut years, of heart
trouble.
The death of Mr. Patmore was a
groat surprise to the people of Cranbrook, ns he had been on the streets
during the latter part nf tlie afternoon apparently feeling better thau
be had for some time. At his evening meal be eniuplaiiied a little nf a
pain in the region nf his heart, but
soon felt easier, aud about 9 o'clock
retired for tlte night. About half au
hour after he had retired he was
fmiiui to be dead in his bed, his
death having evidently been a quiet
and peaceful one.
Mr. Patmore was born in London,
England, ami came to the province of
Ontario when three years of age
with his parents. After arriving at
manhood he engaged in farming (or a
time near Bethany and later in life
entered the hardware business in
Lower Ontario. Ho was married
about 15 years aco at Bethany and
survived his wile 11 years. Eight
veqrs agn he eamc to Cranbrook to
live with his children, who had pre-
leded him and during his residence
here in his quiet, manly way, made
many strnng friends. Throughout j
his life he has lieen a member nf the |
Methodist church and for many years
was leader of thc choir of the church *
tn which he belonged. The deceased
leaves four sons, Joseph, O. \VI, and
Ernie Patmore, of Cranbrook, and
!,. W. Patmore, ol Prince Rupert, and
a daughter, Mrs. Jahcz Harris, of
Camrose, Alberta, The children
were all present nt the funeral except 1». W. Patmore, of Prince   Ru-
HILL & COMPANY
THE  HILL  MOVES
W. D. Hill, manager of Hill & Co., is going to the
coast to live permanently. It is the doctor's orders and
Mr. Hill says it is better to be a live man at the coast than
a dead man in Cranbrook.
1st MOVE.—Sale of entire Furniture Stock to Fink
Mercantile Company.
2nd MOVE.—Moving Ladies Goods to furniture store.
3rd  MOVE.—Reducing  the  Stock to a selling basis.
4th MOVE.—Mr. Hill's departure for the coast in
30 days,
These moves mean a big move in prices—a move
downwards—and what a move it will be. In fact the stock
must be reduced in the next thirty days, and Mr, Hill says,
no matter what reduction in prices is necessary he will sell
the goods before he leaves Cranbrook. It is going to be the
golden opportunity for the people of this district. The sale
includes everything in the store, in both ladies' and men's
departments.
Watch for next week's Advertisement in the  Herald.

HOW TO GET RID     OF STUMPS.
(Creston Review.)
Mr. T. M. Edmonson gave a very
practical exposition ol slump burning
'tor the benefit of a crowd on Thursday last. A stump was chosen near
the Review ollice, ami he proceeded
' lo bore a hole in the base of the
slump with a ship's augur. This
; augur was oue inch in diameter, and
he drove sheer through the stump, a
distance of 28 Inches, in u trifle milder seven minutes. This completed,
he built a small lire near one side of
' llie tree al the mouth ol the hole,
| ami it wus quickly perceived the ad-
I vantage he thus obtained over mure
[primitive methods. The hole he bad
bored acted as a draft and very
'.shortly the slump was blazing furiously. We kept labs on the effect,
and we report that the stump wus
I burned through Die lollowing morn-
ling, when, according to Instructions.
we placed the top part ot the stump
tin top uf lhe burning embers. We
noticed a few hours afterwards Ihal
the roots had begun lo blaze, anil
ilhcse burnt dear to the level of the
'ground, and some ot them burnt to
several inches below llie surface, Fnr
clearing land Inr townsite purposes,
I there bus not yet been discovered auy
simpler nor effective method for eeon-
iomy, and we give Mr. Edmondson
great credit fnr having gratuitously
given a demonstration for thc benefit
of our local men.

"TIIK  COWBOY   BARONET."
Silt     GKNILLK     CAVE-BROWN
CAVE  PROVES  ZAM-BUK   EXCELLENT VOU HURTS
ANI) SORES.
Sir Oetiillc Cave-Brown-Cave, ol
Stretton Hall, Asliliy-dc-la./.oiich
Leicestershire, who is better known
in Canada as "Tlie Cowboy Baronet," lias hail a wide experience ol
the value ol Zam-Buk. Writing to a
friend recently, and speaking ol thi;
great balm, he says:
"1 feci it is only mv dutv tc. let
yuu know what gnat benelit I havo
derived by keeping Zam-Buk liandv,
and having it in constant use. For
the sprains and bruises which 1
have occurred in my horsemanship
ami in my cowboy iile generally, 1
have loitmi it n reiiahle and speedy
healer. Some ol the best Riders in
the west that 1 know, uso Zam-Buk
regularly with the greatest benefit. I
may mention that, one one occasion,
my horse, "Hob" came down with
mo, rolling over mv limbs, ami tearing pieces ol skill nil mv firms. By
use oi Zam-Buk Immediately tiie
wounds and bruises were cleanly ami
c|iiiekly healed, and the raw parts
covered with new, healthy skin.
"When <iu the Mexican plains, I
have used Zam-lluk fur poisonous insect-bites.
"Zam-Buk has yielded me far more
remarkable results and generally
proved more reliable than anything
eould have done in tlic way oi mere
ointments or embrocations, and I
think it unequalled tor skin injuries
attd diseases."
No clearer evidence than thc above
Irom this well-known Baronet could
be needed to prove the unique merit
ol Zam-lluk, attd to show the wisdom ot alwavs keeping handy a box
ol this wonderful balm.
Zam-Buk is Nature's own healing
balm, being composed of pure herbal
essences. It is a sure cure for eczema, ring-worm, ulcers, cuts, burns,
bruises, poisoned sores, chronic
wounds, bail leg, piles, festering
sores, ami all skin injuries and diseases. Druggists and stores everywhere sell at 50c. a box, or post
free for price Irom Zam-Buk Co., Toronto; 3 boxes $1.25. You arc
warned against harmful imitations,
sometimes represented to be "just as
good."

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
EASTER THOUGHTS.
Kneeling beside   her   'mid a kneeling
throng
In the dim twilight of the temple,
where
The Easter buds, scent laden, tilled
the air
With sweet    aroma, and the solemn
song,
Low chanted,   floated   through thu
holy place,
I watched the curtain of her melthm
eyes
Veil their   soft radiance,  and o'er
that fair face
Stole reverent stillness, as with gentle sighs
Sins froui her sinless lips were soon
confessed.
(Ah, fairest saint, were all sins   hut
as thine!)
Then    lifting her     white   forehead
from its pillowed rest
Turning her sad,   sweet visage, mire
with thought divine,
She murmured, bending toward me as
I sat,
"Charles,   Mrs.    Smith   vet wears
her winter hat!"
Beautiful Easter tide. Had not
that Roman seal heen broken, and
the powers of darkness thwarted,
there would have been no Unlit at
Easter tide.     I Son of right
eousness has risen with healing in
His wings and now His glory is the
light of Easter day.
A German Kaster custom is to
light lires on the hillside of the
Hail-, obtaining tho holy water from
the streams at midnight, when the
good spirit moves the waters, and
the presentation of cakes, shaped iu
Hie form of tlie rising sun, are made
special features of the occasion.
It has often been asked whv an cce
is the symbol ol Easter. The use of
eggs for Easter can be traced to the
lljcology aud philosophy of Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and
Romans, among all of whom an epc
was a symbol Of the universe, the
work of tho Supremo Divinity, Thc
Persians gave presents of eggs at the
feast of tlie vernal equinox—ilt honor
of the renewal of all things. Thc
Jews adopted it to meet the circumstances of their history as a type ol
their departure from l->-*'>t, and it
was used in the least of thc passover
as a part of the furnishing of thc
table with the Paschal Iamb. The
earlv Druids also used thc ecir in
tlwir ceremonies.
In Switzerland a peculiar game is
played at Easier. Large baskets
tilled with brand are placed in a
circle somewhere on a free field
public place. Then as many rows of
100 eggs as there arc competitors are
laid, each egg a foot or so apart
from the next, the rows radiating
from the baskets to an equal distance. The task is to put thc 100
eggs, one hy one, into the basket
without breaking any, and who docs
it iu the shortest space of time is
the winner.
Tlte Easter festival of our forefathers covered a period of 15 days.  The
week beginning   with Easter Sunday
i ***  was   most    entirely   given over to
!; JOB WORK A SPECIALTY < . sport and games and general merry-
w x   making.    An odd feature of the old
time celebration was that of heavinc
or lifting, the "heaved" sitting in a
chair decorated with white ribbons.
Easter Mondav and Easter Thursday
werc known as heaving days, the
women sitting in a chair on Monday
and the men on Tuesdav. Those
heaving or lifting the chair were ex
pected to lift it three times and then
kiss the occupant, who, in turn, kissed them. To the regret of the lads
and lassies in the districts where the
novel ceremony was once performed,
the custom has long since died out.

EASTER SUNDAY.
Kaster Sunday, which Iui centuries
was observed unly by certain
churches is uuw almost universal!)
hcpL as a Uay ul days, all evangelical
churches symbolizing it us the anniversary commemorative uf the resurrection of uhrlst, a festival which in
the early Christian era was distinguished as'the Sunday uf joy, and
which Gregory Nazianzen 1,500 vcars
igo called the "t^uceu of tlie days,
Uiat excels all others us lur as thu
sun exceeds the other stars, and
which is still known in the east as
the 'bright day.1 " Another typical
name lot Easier is the "Holiday ut
Hope."
'lucre is a wonderful charm and fas-
iiialiou in this queen festival of the
year, which dominates the whole
world with ils wonderful lessons of
returning life. Not only is the deep
religious significance of the occasion

There is     likely to be   plenty     of

and who will not waste her wonderful resources. Tliere have been
manv repetitions in Canada of the
stoiy of Esau, who was in such a
hurry to get his dinner that he sold
bis birthright, and lie ami liis descendants had to live a hard life ever
after. Very soon tho bovs of today
will be men and they will lind plenty
of work waiting for them—work for

lo do it? Not unless they do what
tliey have to do now with all their

id to operate the great railroads,

Unless the hoys of today who are

from foreign countries taking the best
places and doing the most honorable
work.
