Why Does
THE HERALD'S
Business Grow ?
T
HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
thc news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equiped job offices in all of
Western Canada- and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, the
HERALD "delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us. We can please you.

A cry of horror went up from a
crowd ol passengers standing on Buv-
ton on-Trcnt railway station platform, recently. Before their very
eves lay all tho elements of a
trmaedy. Between the metals ar
assistant shunter wns at work. Suddenly ;i goods train bore down upou
the man- Before the startled spectators could warn bim—almost be
fore the cry of alarm had escaped
their lips—he disappeared beneath tho
engine; and ten horse boxes passed
over him. When the train was
brought to a standstill a number of
persons rushed forward to render
slstancc. They were too late. The
ihuntcr, a mnn named John Hughes,
rose calmly to his feet, stepped ovei
thc metals, walked up to tht
driver of the engine, and gently but
lirmly remonstrated with the driver
iui knocking him down. Beyond
few euts on the fuco and hands, caus-
i.l by falling on tho gravel in tho
four-Toot way, the man was uninjur
oil. lie afterwards attributed his
miraculous escape to the fact that
lie lay perfectly still while tbe train
was going over bim.
A particularly Interesting sight, illustrating tbe habits of birds, was
witnessed some time u^o by &
Maraziim fisherman in Mount's Bay,
Cornwall. A small weather-beaten
bird was noticed by him flying
across the bay in an exhausted condition! nnd presently unable to prtr
coed anv further dropped into tho
water. ' A seagull observing the extremity ot the bird immediately div
■■il into the water, »nd, taking . the
niid i.n its bock, rose into tbo
,iit and eventually released it. The
,-unull bird was, however, unable to
keep on the wing, and again dropped
into the water. The gull for the
second lime dived after the helpless
bird, rescued it, and, spreading its
Kings, carried it this time to
mueh higher altitude. Again
small bird was given another chance,
but the efforts of the friendly gull
were unavailing, and eventually the
little bird dropped into the sea and
perished.
A man named Wen when summoned
before Mr. Plomto, at Marylehone,
London, recently, f„r assaulting his
wife, complained     that she was
funny tempered, unsympathetic,
stern and strong minded woman, who
continually talked him down." On
oqu occasion he Invited her, he said,
to eut his throat. One heard i
great- deal of the emancipation of
woman nowadays, said Mr. Plowden,
but the emancipation seemed to imply mote or less the total subjugation of man. In tbe particular case
before the court the subjugation
seemed bo tie complete. The man
had implored his wife to cut his
throat for him. A deeper or more
abject submission than that Mr.
Plowden could not Imagine. It was
the result, be took it, of a simple-
minded man being yoked to a stern
and an unsympathetic wife. The
accused was bouud over to keep the
peace.
A woman named Sarah Jane Wood,
of Odwaldtwistle, leaped from a moving train to save her two-year-old
child near Wllmslow, Cheshire, and
was killed. A plate-layer named
Williams saw tbe train pass witb a
carriage door flying open- A moment later a child slipped from thc
door down towards the metals. There
was a quick dart of a woman's
hand, and the child was caught by
its scarf- The woman inside the
carriage turned desperately it the
scarf, but It bro e, and the Mi leil
to the ground. Another instant and
ihe woman had jumped from the
carriage and fallen heavily on ber
head.      Williams immediately pickotl
her up and carried her to the sla-1
tion. She was found to he raftering from a fractured skull, and
died in a short time. Meanwhile the
child, unhurt by the tall, ran up
and down the station, crying: "What
aro you doing   to my mother?"
An elopement was frustrated at
Plymouth the other day, as a couple
wero on the point of embarking on
tho liner Orient, by which they had
booked their passages for New Zealand. They were intercepted by the
girl's guardian, her cousin, and a
local detective, wlio, after some discussion, hurried her into a cab and
drove to the police station. The
gill, who is only nineteen, had been
:ouried secretly for some time by
the man, tt Lancashire farmer, aged
forty, imd finally an elopement was
planned A few weeks ago, for uo
apparent reason, the farmer sold oil
Ills stoek, and subsequently tho girl
and her lover disappeared, Thc
girl's relatives, however, quickly took
up the pursuit, imd tbo mini ways
weie traced lirst to London, and then
lo Plymouth. The man sailed ou
the Orient nntl the girl returned U)
hei iriends.
Oeorge Vi. Baker, of Crewe, after
successfully evading for some years
the attentions of ;i warrant officer,
who wanted him tor leaving his wife
d lamily on the rates, was lured
into the grip oi the law by the
fascinating prospect of a largo legacy. During the seven years sinco
the warrant was taken out by1 the
Guardians, a sum of over £80 had
been expended on thc prisoner's Wife
and children. Ho had not beeu heard
of until now, when the tidings of a
large fortune lead him to Nottingham to lay claim to over £5,000 lett
by Kezia Baker, who died in Egypt
, two years ago. Whilst pursuing this
{claim he was arrested on the old
warrant. He offered to pay tho
(.iiurdians us soon as he had the
money, hut   was remanded.
Captain Kdward L'pton, the officer
{commanding the Kastern Mounted
Brigade column of the Army Ser-
viee Corps, told the members at
Chelmsford that when taking the
waters recently in Germany he dined
with a number of German officers,
and in the course of conversation,
mentiotied that ho came from
Chelmsford. A major ol artillery
satd, "Oh! 1 know Chelmsford!,
that's in my district." Captain
l'pton asked bim what he meant,
and the major explained that every
German officer bad a part of Great
Britain to know thoroughly, and
that he had to be conversant with
the direction and elevation of all
.roads, and tho situation ol wells and
[iora-ge, and provision stores. His
"district," he said, extended from
Chelmsford to Brentwood.
The Yarmouth -steam drifter Maggie .May. when returning to port on
u recent Sunday afternoon, struck
Holm Sand, off Lowestoft, and became a total wreck, with the loss of
two lives. There were ten hands all
told on board, and they suffered terribly. Tbe eight survivors were
rescued early on the following
morning. The crew had to climb
the rigging, where they shouted
for help till they were hoarse. They
wero benumbed and drenched by rain
i and heavy seas, and after several
hours one man named Wright fell
into the sea and was drowned.
Shortly afterwards a boy, Har board,
was washed away and lost. After
ten hours the eight survivors attracted the attention of the Montrose
brigantlno Aurora, who effected a
plucky rescue. The sea was so high
that the rescuers dare not take
more than one man in their boat at
a time. Thus eight trips wero made
between the drifted and tho Aurora.
By the recent death at Hove,
Brighton, of Major Dudley Albert
Hambrough, tho Ardlemont mystery,
which provided ono of the most celebrated British criminal trials of recent times, is recalled. Major Ham-
•broufch, who was fifty-nine, was the
father of Cecil Hambrougb, the
young lieutenant of Militia who, on
August 10, 18S3, lost his life by a
"unshot wound at Ardlamont,
Argyllshire. Alfred John Monson
was charged with killing Mr. Hambrougb while out shooting rabbits,
but ofter a ten days' trial at Edinburgh, during which seventy-six witnesses were ealled for the prosecution nnd twenty-two for the defence,
the jury returned the peculiarly
Scottish verdict of Not Proven, and
Monson left   the dock a free man.
"Granny" Shepherd, an aged inmate of the Cnckfleld (Sussex) workhouse, has been the cause of a great
Innovation, almost a revolution, and
the powers of the local government
board had to be invoked to deal
with her case. She is a constant
smoker—her pipe, she Bays, alone
makes life worth living—and she felt
the deprivation ot tobacco when she
entered tho workhouse. Now, however, she will no longer be unhappy, for the board has issued '
.-.peeial dispensation, allowing her to
have tobacco instead of the ordinary

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER.
LOVELY WOMAN1.
This is the ladies' age. There is
ito mi-taking that fact, and in spite
fate she is going to play no
ond fiddle in the near future. The
ladies, bless 'em, cau do anything
nowadays hul fish, and already' they
ir.* wonderfully proficient in that urt
oven—os fat' as suckers are concerned.
The lad) never says can't excepl
when slie means won't, and when she
s "I will," vou can bet your
neck she is going to if she has to
■oil the family bible to do ir,. Thc
woman ot today is a different beiiift
n lhe woman of lifty years ago.
The shrinking, trembling, weeping
heroines of Thackeray and Dickens
havo disappeared. It is better tbat
il is so. For ruy part, I prefer the
Becky Sharps to ihe Amelia Sed-
leys, N'ot only has the woman of
foday shaken off those old time
weaknesses, not only has she au-
sumiil a stern independence, which to
sume is well nigh disheartening, but
she has made her determination
known to tbe world, has waved It
dcflaatlj iti our faces in the
shape of certain signs and symbols
whieh have a tendency to add em-
phusis to   her emancipation.
Another thing: A woman ean go
shopping and save at least, a hundred
dollars in spending fifty. Oh, Indeed,
it is wonderful how much the aver-
ago woman can save w^hen she goes
shopping. It is, really' She is so
wing. She would gladly spend live
dollars for the mere pleasure of
saving fifty cents. Then, she can
make fancy work. It is simply
wonderful what the average woman
ean do in that direction. She will
embroider a dolly for a ehureh lair,
iisin* fifty cents worth of material,
and a' least a week's solid labof and
die will be iHighted when she hears
i bat some Renerotts purchaser bought
it for 7a cents on account of tbe
Hood cause. Wil hear a great deal
of complaint from women ahntil the
poor Wages paid, and the low value
set on woman's work. But, my
dear woman, it is you who have
net the value on your tabor. When
it woman is willing fo spend three
months spare time in order to save
,l few cents a yard by making her
..wn carpet, is ii any 'wonder that
Iier labor is considered cheep.

'lo the Editor of the Cranbiook Herald, Cranbrook, B.C.:
Sir. There Is sadly wanted in
Cranbrook some organization to take
up such a    case as  thc following:
The C.l'.lt. ollicial who arrange
the running ol passenger trains have
served this district a dirty trick, and
one that, so far, only an appeal to
ihe railway commission can remedy.
I p to the issue of Ihis winter's
Ume card persons wishing to visit
Cranbrook could flag the passenger
train lhat came alung some time in
the forenoon, just what time, how-
ever, was always a matter ol con-
ice tun-, being anywhere from one to
live hours oil schedule time. But
oveir thai was better than not to
he allowed to (lag that train at all,
the privilege being stopped when tlie
winter's time card came into force.
Benedict Siding is six miles from
Fort Steele and for the last lour
years has had a working population
around it, ranging from seventy-five
to one hundred and fifty men, and
this naturally causes considerable

TUESDAY
OET RICH-QUICK  MAN  CAUGHT.
(Fernie Free Press.)
Great credit is due 7the local police force for the unrelenting and persistent manner in which they have
followed one Sidney Cullcn, alias
Alex. Jackson, and finally secured
his arrest.
On November 1 of last year Chas.
Vi. Owens, of this city, wns relieved
of two checks, one drawn by W. M.
Dickon for $85.50, and thc other lor
$12.00 diawn bv J. Williams. On
Christmas Eve one of these checks
was cashed at Ihe King's hotel, the
other at the Central.
The police then arrested John Fa*
t In mill on suspicion, as lit. had been
iu companv with lhc man who cashed the chocks, Ile claimed he did
not know bis companion's namo, but
gave a description of him which was
forwarded to tho police of the
neighboring cities. It was found
that a mau answering the description
named Cullcn had been In Crnnhrook
nnd that he had gone to Skookumchuck where be got work In thc lumber camps.
When the officer sent to arrest
him arrived on the scene, Cullcn was
gone, aud would probably have heen
safe for the present hud he not written from Eholt to*a former employer
asking for recommendations, etnpha
sizing the fact that his name was
now Jackson. This letter, falling
into the hands nf the police, a wire
was sent to the chief of poliee at
Greenwood und Cullcn was arrested-
A constable has been sent to bring
him here to stand trial. Fathcrgill
was arrested again on Wednesday on
a charge of vagrancy and he will be a
star witness in tlie case for the
crown.
The local police are to be complimented on thus exemplifying the
principle which makes British law
respected by the aliens in our midst
—namely, thnt "the law never tor-
gets."
The annual meeting of the Farmers' Institute was held in the Provincial government ollices on Saturday
lasl, and there was a good attendance of members to receive the report of the first vear's working,
The secretary's statement showed
receipts from members subscriptions
$19.00, and from the government
grant, $-11.00, a total ot $9,1.00
which, after deducting the expenses
for the year, $2.1.90, leaves a balance
in hand of $09.10.
Sinee the lasl annual meet he there
have been seven meetings held, nt
five of which the speakers were «ro
vided by the Department of Agrlcul
lure free of charge.
During lhc vear the department has
distributed to members several bulletins dealing with fruit growin- poultry raising, dalryitr etc., in addition to Bailey's Horticulturist's

ST. VALENTINE DAY.
\ week from next Sunday will be
SI. Valentine's Day. The origin of
the day nml the custom ot sending
"Valentines" is shrouded in mystery.
St. Valentine is said to have heen
tie of thc Roman martyrs who was
beheaded hv the Emeror Claudius ou
lhe Mth of Kebruary. Ono theory
of t-he origin of the custom is that
birds were supposed to mate ahout
that date. Whatever the origin, it
is a fact that elaborate presents and
also many thousands of hideously vulgar missives are sent through the
mails on or about thc llth.

HOLD-UP MAN AT WORK.
(Fernie Free Press.)
Louis Carosella had a narrow escape from assassination on Saturday
morning at the hands ot some as yet
unknown villain. Louie bas been
sleeping in a room at the rear of the
store. About 3 o'clock on Sunday
morning the would-be assassin aroused Louie Irom his peaceful slumber by
smashing the glass out of the window of his room, followed by a
command to bold up bis hands. A
shot was fired by the intruder with a
view of emphasizing thc lact that he
meant business.
Instead ol extending his digits upward in a (utile grasp at the iirma.
ment, Louis grabbed his artillery,
rolled out ot bed and engaged his
ulversary. Several shots were exchanged but none of the bullets
found its billet, although one ball
grazed Louis' knee.
Thc invading force was quite unprepared tor such courageous resistance and beat a hasty and undignified
treat.
As vet no clue has been discovered
as to'the identity of the perpetrator
ol this outrage, the general opinion,
however, heing thnt It is the work ot
tbe Black Hand.
A small blaze occurred at about
12.15 on Tuesday nicht at the shack
oceunied bv John Fox. The department made, perhaps, what was the
quickest turn-out thev have ever
made, being through the doom on
the sixth stroke of tho bell. Owing
to a frozen hydrant the water connection had   to he made at        the
