it by not sending over some rinks,

know thnt a good time would he iu
store tor the visitors to Cranbrook.
Tlie first day the ice was excellent,

contractors on thc construction ol
the Crow and has a host of friends
in the west.
The Rev. Grant, ot Fernie, was un
interesting figure at the bonspiel.
Perhaps it is not generally known
that Sir. Grant is the original of tbe
"Sky Pilot" in Ralph Connor's hook
ot that name.
Alderman Henderson's nok did
well. They were beaten hy Grant
in the Gault competition,   but   they
were hy no means disgraced.
Oui of all the visiting rinks there
is not a man who has not expressed
himself as anxious to come hack to
Cranhrook next year
Tliere will he a four dav honspiel
next year at Cranbrook.
Nothing could have pleased Cranhiook people hetter than to see "The
Sky Pilot" win the Corby and the
Gault trophies.
The Cranhrook city band rendered
a number of choice selections at the
Curling rink on Tuesday evening.
Bandmaster Corrison has every reason to be proud of thc aggregation
he has gotten together and trained so
. ~.itmaster Johnson, of Fernie,
looked most dignified on thc ice, as
he does everywhere else.
The Rev. Main showed that a
clerical suit may cover a sportsman's heart.
Fred Watson, the well known insurance man, of Fcmic, was offering accident insurance to all curlers on the
lee.
E. If. Small had to surrender to
'The Sky Pilot."
White, of Calgary, is white.
Blundell, of Fernie, foreot all
about cash groceries during the honspiel.
"The Sky Pilot," the Rev. Grant,
won thc Corby prize. The Lord
looks after his own.
F. P. Rhodes, the chief of police of
Macleod, was among the curlers, Mr.
Rhodes is an old Northwest Mounted
Policeman and knows his foothill
country like a book. He is a good
fellow and the Windy Citv is to be
congratulated upon having such a
man to look after the peace of their
city.
Thc only Cranbrook rink that won
a first place in anv competition was
that skipped hy J. G. McCallum.
Tl* won the trophy presented by
Judge Wilson.
Hugh Macleod, of Calgary, said:
"Next year there will be five rinks
from Calgary. Most of them cannot
do thc bear dance- Some ol them
can curl and   they will all be men."
M. McLean, of Macloed, said: "I
have never seen a bonspiel so well
run. I never had a better time and
I have been going to honspiels for
twenty-five years."
Judge Wilson, secretary ot the
bonspiel, wishes to thank tbe Imperial Bank, thc Canadian Bank of
Commerce, G. T. Rogers, A. B. Bow--
ness, A. L. McDermot, Hoggarth nnd
Rollins, E. H. Small, W. A. Rollins, and others who so kindly contributed    towards     making tbe bon-
piel a success.

EDMONTON   WINS   THK SECOND
CAME ALSO.
Nelson, B.C., Feb. 17,—The Edmonton hockey team is beyond all
doubt champions (tf Western Canada.
This they demonstrated beyond question last night by defeating the Nelson team, champions ot British Columbia hy 8-4 in the fastest and the
most exciting hoci-ev .name ever seen
in British Columbia. Both teams
went it hnmmer and tongs from start
to finish and there was never a moment that there wns not something
doing.
Although the score was S-l, the
Nelson men had their opponents busy
all the time and had it not been lor
the magnificent work of Winchester
iu goal, assisted by Crowley at point
and Ross at cover, the score might
have been very different. At the
same time tbe Nelson defence also did
good work and bnd it not been for
It there might have been a greater
difference in thc score than there
was. The game took longer than
Mondav night's, there lieing several
stops tor minor injuries. Frank
Patrick suffered a nasty cut on thc
forehead, but kept on in the game.
The big rink was packed for the
occasion, several hundred comta"" in
on the special train trom Rossland
and Trail in addition to the many
who were in the city trom other
points.
All were there to cheer Nelson on
to vlctorv and were ns much disappointed as were the Nelsonites at the
defeat of the local team.

DUTY ON LUMBER
Nelson, Feb. 11.—At a largely attended meeting of the Nelson lioard
of Trade held this evening, a strongly
worded resolution was passed asking
the Dominion government to place a
duty of $11 a thousand on rush fir,
codar, spruce, larsh and pine lumber
coming Into Canada, and of three
cents per thousand on shinnies. The
resolution sets forth the present unsatisfactory condition of tho lumber
trade in the interior, thousands of
men out of employment, and millions
ol capital invested in mills anil timber limits lying unproductive, largely
as the result of dumping it American
lumber on the government, following
the demoralization oT tlio Industry In
ihe United States.
TROTTER KEEPS IN LIMELIGHT
IN BRITAIN
London, Feb. 11.—At a meeting of
the Edinburgh Trades and Labor
Council, the Canadian lahor walking
delegate, Trotter, said the Salvation
Army bad issued a booklet entitled
"The Surplus." This was so full
of mis-statements in regard to Canada and emigration generally that
the Trades Congress of Canada would
shortly issue a reply. Trotter stnt-
ed the object of the Salvation Army
was not to help emigrants so much
as to acquire gavornment bonus on
agricultural laborers and commissions
on steamship and railway fares.
lOiidon, Feb. 10.—The Globe, referring to the mission to this country
of W. R. Trotter, representing the
Canadian labor interests, says thnt
whatever the limited usefulness he
may have hnd, the radical press
which first, welcomed him as an opponent of imperialism, which tbey
hate, hnve become rather chary of
their hospitality. Ile make's so
manv mistakes aiid is so easily suppressed thnt he makes a poor ally
for them. F. It. Vroomnn in a recent lecture said that Mr. Trotter
represented nobody in British Columbia but the ultra-socialist labor
partv.
Mr. Trotter, interviewed in the
Westminster Gazette, denied thnt he
was a member of any Socialist party
in Canada.
AN IMPORTANT CASE
An action of interest was tried on
tbe 10th inst. before Mr. Justice
Irving at Nelson. The plaintiff, R.
O. Bclvidcne, a tie maker, sued W.
■L Allen, who lives ut Marysville, for
the price of 10,353 ties, amounting
to $1440.43. under a written agreement, which only specified the price
as to the making and skidding of
thc ties at 14 ceuts eaeh, hut did
not refer to the question of inspection The defend ant drew away this
number of ties to the banks of the
St. Mary's river, and there had tbe
same inspected, with the result thnt
2,918 of them were refused hy the
inspector. The plaintiff sued tor the
full amount, Sll 10.42. but the defendant paid into court 5991.04, The
plaintiff contended tbat ns thc
fendant had taken the ties thnt
lie hnd accepted the same and that
he. should uot suffer by the inspection. Judgment was given for the
defendant with costs on the ground
that there was an implied term in the
contract that thc ties should he suli-
ject to inspectioi: and that the
plaintiff must lose the value ot the
ties not passing inspection. S. S.
Taylor, K.C, of Nelson, appeared for
the plaintiff, and A. H. Macdonald, of
Cranbrook, for   the defendant.
THK  KOOTENAY CENTRAL.
Ottawa, Feb. IB.—A bill extending
the time of the completion of the

explained that tbis is a C.P.R. project to build a line from Fort Steele
to the International boundary, and
from the boundary to Golden on the
main line. The company hns the
power to build tramways to any
mines which may be developed nlong
its line. Mr. Goodeve, Kootenay,
said his constituents were opposed to
a long extension of time. Fruit
ranchers in the valley of the Columbia Tfy'er whom this line would serve,
are anxious to have the line constructed Immediately, Up to thc
present time nothing hut grading had
been done.
Further discussion was postponed
until Thursday.

NO TROUT TILL MAY 1st
As a result of changes in the regulations made hy the Dominion government last, year, the season for trout
11.shine in ' the waters of Okanagan
and Kootenay districts does not open
until May I this year instead ol
March 25 us in former vears. This
is something that will he well tor
llie disciples ot Isaac Walton tit remember that there is a heavy fine
provided for Infractions of this taw.
There are also other changes which
it. will be well to bear in mind.
Among these are the provisions that
no trout weighing less than three
pounds may be offered for sale and
ihat no trout under eight inches in
length may he captured.
The clause of the regulations dealing with the close season rends as
follows:
"The taking of trout of all kinds
is prohibited from the 15th November to 25th March following, excepting in the waters of thc interior ot
the province of British Columbia,
east or parallel 120 west londtudc,
where the taking of trout of all kinds
from 15th November to 1st May following is prohibited."
The clause dealing with the sale of
trout and the size that may be
caught are as follows:
"No trout under ci-'ht inches iu
length shall be taken in the waters
of British Columbia, and ii taken
shall be returned to the water alive."
"No trout under three imunds in
weight shall be bought, sold or ex-
nosed for sale in the province ot
llritish Columbia."

HON.      TEMPLEMAN   GETS CO-
MOX-ATL1N  BY  ACCLAMATION.
.Vancouver, Feb. 1).—The Hon. Wm.
Templeman. minister of inland revenue, was elected by acclamation for
Comox-Atlin, caused bv the resignation of Mr. Sloan.
The election of Hon. Templeman occasioned a little surprise. The Provincial Conservative convention was
divided, manv leading industrialists
preferring to have a Liberal minister
as representative rather than one
more in opposition. They also
pointed out it would not justify outlay, therefore, passed it to the local
convention and their resolve to fight
occasioned surprise. Thc expense,
-..tO.nno, it is believed, swayed with
Mr. Manson, and it is thought the
disgruntled Liberals were thc principal instigators in thc tight.

AWBE MEN NOT TO GOON STRIKE
At thc seventh annual convention
of District 18, ot the United Mine
Workers of America, held at Lethbridge, Alta., on the 4th inst., a
very important point, that ot strikes,
was taken up. It seems that after
some deliberations the convention advised the men not to go on strike,
but to ask for a board of conciliation
under thc Lemieux Act, in view ot
Ihe fart that agreements expire in
seven weeks.
In his report the president advised
breaking away from the Trades and
Labor Congress of Canada, which, ho
said, was unprogn-ssive in the extreme, and giving labor in Western
Canada no assistance. There was
some strong opposition to this move
at the present time, but tbe president received substantial backing. A
roll eall was asked for and the vote
stood 36 for and 20 azainst breaking
with the congress. This will mean
a saving of 11,000 a year to the
miners of the district.
NATAL ACT DISALLOWED.
Ottawa, Feb. 17.—An extra of the
Canada Gazette has been issued containing notice that thc Governor
General in Council has disallowed tbe
Natal Act passed by the British Columbia legislature on February 1,
1908. The object of the ant was to
impose an educational test on new
arrivals in the province. The law
has been enacted several times by
British Columbia but as often has
heen disallowed hv the Ottawa government The supreme court of British Columbia declared some time
ago that the act was unconstitutional. The effect of the disallow-
nnce will he to prevent nn nnpeul being taken to thc Imperial privy
foiiii'il from the judgment of thc
British Columbia court.
EAST KOOTENAY A GARDEN OF EDEN
A. E. Watts Has Practically Demonstrated
This Fact
Last Sunday a real estate man, a
newspaper man from Lethbridge and
two representatives of thc Herald
drove out to Wattsburg to spend the
•*-<> with A. K. Watts, and it is safe
to say that the quartette learned
more about tbe agricultural ami horticultural resources ot the district
than they ever learned hefore in the
same space of time. Wattsburg is
situated nine miles south and west ot
Cranbrook on the line of the Crows
Nest Pass railway. The question,
"What is Wattsburg?" would be a
natural one. The answer is that
Wattsburg is a mixture of a commercial enterprise and an old-fashioned
English gentleman's home. Thc estate covers some 8,000 acres of some
of the very finest timber in the
province, whieh is sawn into lumber
oi all kinds, made into wooden pipes,
which are used extensively tor water
works, and other timber products.
Among other things Mr. Watts is
contemplating the manufacture ot
colonial pillars for architectural purposes and bas invented a machine for
carving the tops and bases by electricity. Besides the saw mill Mr.
Watts is doing a great deal along
the lines of experiments in intensified
agriculture. The par''* were shown
.i greenhouse heated hv steam in
whtcn they were allowed to gather
raspberries and ripe tomatoes to
their heart's content, and were
shown many varieties of flowers in
bloom, besides ferns and other greenery. Near by the greenhouse is a
range of frnmes heated by a single
run of an inch steam pipe and in
these frames may be seen hundreds
of cusp lettuces and young cabbages
and cauliflowers raising theii heads
to the glass as if to defy the frost
king. AH these vegetables     stood
thc cold snap of the early part ot
January perfectly. Under the
benches in the greenhouse and in
another    heated building there    are
many square feet of mushrooms,
which will be producing from a pound
and a half to two pounds to the
square foot, very shortly. Then
tho big water tower was visited
with us two foot thick walls in
which are stored hundreds ot Savoj
cabbages, turnips, carrots, onions
and in tact all Kinds of winter vegetables. During last year Mi. Watts
laiitt-d over (8,000 worth ot vegetables and small truils oil of less
than four acres of land, and this out
put will be materially Increased this
year, as the fruit trees will be oldet
aud will, uf course, bear more trull.
Half a ton of raspberries were preserved on the place during 1903, aud
their tiavor is delicious. ' At dinner
on Sunday everything on the table
was thc product ol the raneh wilh
thc except ion ot the tea, coffee and
sugar. The meats, vegetables, butter, cream and such cream as the
city dweller seldom tastes, and the
Iruit were all produced right there
at Wattsburg. Thc description ot n
visit to Mr. Watts' would be Incomplete without a reference to "Bust
er." 'Muster" is a white tail buck
that lives in a corral close tn one ol
the sitting room windows. "Buster"
is a great pet and has one astonishing peculiarity in addition to eating
vegetables and other edibles, he will
eat newspapers. The visitors saw
hini eat almost the whole of a ropy
ot the Nelson Dally News, in fact
all of It but the Ottawa letter. To
ui up, Mr Watts is doinr, a great
..:- f * "lis part ot the country.
.* : it ..• worth anyone's while, who
is interested In the development oi
this district, to visit Wattsburg and
see what has a:id can be done by
judicious use of energy and
brail • II the government can see
thcii way to establishing an experimental station in Easl Kootenay,
ar,d they should,    no place is better
-suited for the   purpose   than Watts-
• burg.
LONGBOAT WINS
THE  ENGLISHMAN  BEATEN
AFTER A VERY PLUCKY
RACE.
New York, Feb. 5.—Tom Longboat,
the big Canadian, broke Alfred
Sbrubb's heart and won a great race
tonight trom tbe gamest little man
that ever laced a racing shoe. It
was the old story of tbe hart and
the tortoise. The bare had the
speed and he had the heart, bpt tbt*
tortoise was built to go tbe route,
and that is all that can be said
of the greatest Marathon race ot tbe
century. The time was 2 hours. 53
mins., 40 2-5 seconds.
Kor twenty miles Shrubb raced the
big Indian into tbe ground aad ran
himself into a state of collapse in an
attempt to gain eight laps.
He gained them, but at the cosl of
every spark of stamina in bis body,
and as he staggered from the track a
beaten man at the end ot tbe fifth
lap in the twenty-fourth mile, Tom
Longboat came plodding down tbe
stretch, running as well as he had
run at any stage ot the race. Tbe
crowd gave one cheer for the plucky
little Englisgman who had tried to
play another man's game and failed,
and then settled down to watch
Longboat finish tbe race alone.
If pluck could have won tbe race it
would have gone to tbe Englishman,
hut a man must have Marathon legs
to go the route, and Shrubb did not
have them.

Winnipeg, Man., Feb. iO.-The Canadian Pacific and tbe Canadian

It   C   TURNS     DOWN SUFFRAGE
FOB   WOMEN.
Victoru. Feb. -.-The Attorney
Gcberal's lull to authorize the revi-
ilon of the statutes of British Columbia was passed by the legislature
yesterday Mr. Hawthornthwaite,
Socialist member for Nanaimo, introduced a bill for women's suffrage.
This measure is modelled closely on
the Australian act, and gives women exactly the same rights as men
under the Election Act.
This was defeated iu the House last
session.
Iir. King, Cranbrook, introduced a
bill directed towards determining
more fully the standing ot tbe medical profession.
At Port Essfngton, on the northerly coast of British Columbia, a no-table    entertainment took place    not
long ago.     This   was nothing    less
thau     the   rendering      ot Handel's
Oratorio, "The Messiah," by a choral
society consisting of some fifty   tull-
(blooded    Indians,   before an audience
I composed in large measure of British

lu tho little vtllace 0! Dungloe,
County Donegal, lives Mrs. Catherine
llaiiluii, who will sunn be 103 years
old. She has resided all her life in
the village, and marrying at tho ago
0! Hi, she has had" tl sons and
daughters, some ol whom aro In Australia, others an- m America, while
the remainder <>f the surviving members of her large family imlil comfortable positions in tho South ol
England and at Dublin. Mis. Han-
Ion is still in possession al all her
faculties and her ini-iimiy for dates
is remarkable, She can narrate with
a wealth to detail, particulars regarding ihe faction fights whicli frequently took place in the village during her early days, when every Irish
peasant kept his well greased shillelagh up his ehiiiin-■ readv Ior instant use, and when the challenge to
a fight was the Blmplc invitation to
"tread on the tall of me coat." Mrs.
Ifatiloii lias a vivid recollection of an
incident from which noarlv all the
claimants for old age pensions in thr
district have calculated lheir ages,
namely, the wreck nf the Andrew
Nugent, a British hatuue which was
driven ashore in tlie vicinity ol Dungloe during a terrific gale some seventy vears' ago, the crew of :>:j hands
being all drowned. Mrs. llanlon is
the owner ot a small hotel which lias
been iu her family tor generations.
Mr. Patrick Sinnot, n nonagenarian
veteran, who had served his country
in various parts 0! the world, and
had thrilling experiences ol active
service, has just died. He belonged
to Clonmel, Ireland, where ho was
burn in 1818, and enlisted at Dublin
in 1837. He took part in thc
Afghananistnn campaign, and in.
IS.'M witnessed the fall of Cbuznco
and Kelit. Later on ho saw active
righting in the Scinde expedition ot
18If), having many exciting experiences on the march tti Lahore under
Lord Napier. In 1818 Mr. Sinnot
left the 17th Regiment and joined
the Seaforth Highlanders in Bombay.
In 1851, on his way home, the transport, the Earl of Balcarres, which
was conveying troops home, was
wrecked in Mozambique Channel, and
the vessel drifted helplessly for over
a month, eventually reaching Cape
Town after three months' sail Irom
Bombay. Being keen for active service, Mr. Sinnot transferred into the
Highland Light Infantry and sailed
for the Crimea, lie was present at
the siege and capture ot Sevastopol.
After over twenty-one years' active
service, Mr. Sinnot was appointed
quartermaster ot the local corps at
Kort George, where he remained for
I wenty-two years. Twenty-seven
years ago lie retired from the army,
after having served forty-throe vears.
One of the few remaining cottage
industries in the north ot Ireland is
threatened with extinction in consequence in recent improvements iu
embroidering machines. Irish peasants have been fn ed for more than
a century for the excellence of their
embroidery and needlework generally,
and their goods have commanded aj
reaily sale in the most exclusive mar- ■
kets of the world. Tlie new machines, it is claimed, will produce a
linished article tt* design and us
beautifully worked as any but the
very finest hand work. Ohe firm of
linen manufacturers in Belfast has
just installed twenty-five ot the
new machines, with thc result that
orders which formerly would have occupied scores of cottagers in County
Donegal for months, are now executed
li\ a few girls in tho factory in as
many days, other linen mnnutactur-l
ers in that city are also installing '
the machines as rapidly as possible.
I'p to the present thc finest class of
work, such as handkerchiefs and other cambric embroidery, has not heen
affected, so that the cottagers of the
Countv Down cost, who devote their
attention chiefly to this class of
work, stilt find adequate employment. 1
Following on the announcement
that certain railways are reducing
their pensions to employes to enable
them to claim old age pensions under
the Government Act, Mr. Cecil T.
Parker, land agent to the Duke of
Westminster, has issued a notice to
his estate pensioners over seventy.
It is as follows: "The Government
scheme of pensions takes effect from
the 1st January, uud as vou are entitled to benefit hy it, I am desired
to inform you that vou should apply I
at once loi     a pension, as the 1
shillings per week now allowed you
by his Grace will not be paid to vou
after the end of lfl(*8." Thc Duke of
Westminster is one of the richest men
iu Kngland, and his estate when he
en t ered in! o his inherit mice were [
valued at   (.111,000,000.
At Aylshain, Norfolk, recent, Lord
Orford, who was acco punted by
Prince Frederick Dhulecp Singh, unveiled a tablet placed on a house in
memory of Christopher Layer, a Norfolk attorney, who lived in troublous
limes, and was hanged, drawn, and
quartered at Tyburn, iu May, 1723.
Layer, though a good lawyer, was
Known to be immoral, quarrelsome,
and unscrupulous. Although a
Protestant, he professed ardent
Jacob tistrn, and hoped to be made
Lord Chancellor oa a restoration ol
the Stuarts. He accordingly went lo
Borne, and unfolded to the Pretender
a wondrous plot he had conceived to
enlist soldiers, seize the Tower,
mint, bank, and other public build,
ings, to secure the Royal Family,
and murder the commander-in-chief
and ministers. Ile and his confederates afterwards met at an inn at
Stratfnrd-le-Bow, and attempted to
entice soldiers at Romford and I-ey-
tonstone. He was betrayed hv two
female friends. {
The recent death of Major Dudley
A. Hambrough, at Hove, recalls a
notable 15 year old mystery. 111s
son, Cecil Hamborough, lost his life
by a gunshot wound at Ardamont,
Argylls, in 1803. Alfred John Mon-
son was charged with killing Mr.
Hambrough while out shooting rabbits, but after a ten days' triul at
Kdiuburgh tbe jurv returned the
Scottish verdict of "Not Proven,"
and Monsnii left the dock u free man.
All thnt could be said against Mon-
son was that, nfter making numerous
fruitless attempts to efiect an insurance on the life of voung Ham-hrough.
he finally    succeeded.       lie reached
Ardlamont on August 8, with two
policies oi C30.00Q, and two days
later Hatnhrough dies, in circumstances that have nevei since been
cleared up. 1
Great distress has been caused by
the recent bigslido at Kllmoro, County Galway. and the bog still remains a menace to the surroundiug
country bide. Several   people   had |
narrow escapes, the unexpectedness
of the visitation necessitating immediate llicht. while Ihe stock had

A do/en families bail to rush hall

ul a widow named McDonnell was
entirelv submerged, and thu woman
perished. Thc bogslide has entirely
altered the face ol the district, well
defined rivers ami roads having disappeared. Grave fears are entertained that the art .mining village of Kllmoro will be swept away if the bog
resumes its course. The bog is an
ocean of mud aud slush ot an average
depth of 12 feet, and is estimated to
cover 500 acres. Tin son of the widow McDonnell, who perished u, ihe
hog, has lost his reason, and is now
in a lunatic asvlum.
A young married woman, Mary
Pay, pleaded guilty to a scries uf
forgeries at Dublin recently, bu'. in
consideration of her age the Recorder
took time to consider his judgment.
Curiously enough, tho prisoner had
not benefited to the extent of a pen-
ay by her acts. She had been a
housemaid in tbe employment of Mr.
W. Burton, Carrigaholt Castle, Coun-
l ly Clare, and there married Mr. Bdr-
' ton's butler. She bad represented to
her husband on their marriage that
she was likely to come iu for some
means, and tn; also bad held oui the
hope to her that he would he in an
independent position shortly, It
was in order to keep up that pretence that she was induced lo forge
certain cheques.
A curious story of au Irish family
filed is reported from County Roscommon. Two brothers named Daley
were, returning home from slumping
iu Tulsk, County Roscommon, recently, when they were set upon by
two brothers Donley and severely
beaten—John Daley lo such an extent
thut bis depositions were subse- uent-
ly taken. The Doolcys were arrested and taken to Sligo jail. The offence of which thc Dalevs were guilty
is said tu have been thai tbey were
seen speaking to the Doolcys' brother-in-law, named Kelly, wlm occupied
the Doolcys' farm after tbey had been
evicted. The police force iu the district has been augmented in view ot
the feud.
Impressing an intention tu part
with his life rather than part with
his old age pension id live shillings a
week, an old man, recently refused
the offer of the Monaghun Board of
Guardians to pay liis railway (are to
Dublin to enter a hospital tor the
treatment of an affection of the
eyes. It hud been explained to him
that if lie accepted thc fare it. would
be considered an outdoor relief aud
would lead to the withdrawal of bis
pension. He left Monaghau expressing his determination to walk to
Dublin, a distance of about 80 miles.
A rather serious slate ul affairs exists on the large estates ol Peteival
and Streeda, near Manorbamiiton.
The tenants some time ago asked thc
landlords to sell their holdings to
thorn, and, in reply, the landlords
asked such terms lis would ensure
their present incomes. The tenants
offered something less, and, as an
agreement could not he come to, the
tenants have resolved to pay no rent
Until the landlords agree to sell to
them at the terms offered.
Remarkable business methods were
described at the meeting of the creditors and shareholders of the British
United Assurance Corporation, Limited, at the Lundun bankruptcy
court, recentlv. The chairman reported that the comiwiu's authorized capital wus £50,000, but the
amount subscribed never exceeded
£8,000. The company seemed to
have lived entirely on its premiums,
for it had no reserve fund, and although from Mav, 1906; to September, 1908, it had undertaken risks
amounting to £1,03*1,000, its bank
balance never exceeded £382. Gen.
orally the balance stood at about
£100, hut it hud fallen as low as
£20. The assets disclosed amounted
to about £200, but it was very
doubtful whether they would realize
that sum. The risks which had actually arisen amounted to £18,000.
A romance of the peerage has just
been closed hy thc death of Lady
Robert Montagu. This lady, whose
maiden name was Miss Wade, began
life in the humble role ot a house-
mail. She was exceedingly attractive iu appearance, aud her good
looks drew the attention of Lord
Robert Montagu, who was living near
the residence in which Miss Wade was
employed. Lord Robert, having fallen in love witli the beautiful housemaid, duly married her, und Miss
Wade that was thereupon became rc-j
lilted to some of the most distinguished members ol the Knglish peer-1
age, Lorn Robert having been the son :
of the sixth Duke of Manchester.        I
An Indian Mutiny veteran has recently passed away in the person ol
Joseph Madelev. He was horn on
May 12, 1830, at Derby, und enlisted
in the 95th Foot on October 13, 1K»7<.
He took part in the suppression of
the Indian Mutiny, was present at
the seige and .storming of tbe Kotah
f Kaput ana) at the storming and capture of Chundari, in the battle of
Gwalior, and the storming of the
fortress of Gwalior, for which those
who assisted were promised the

not allow British soldiers to accept
it from the Maharajah of Gwalior.
The veteran was also present at the
iccapturc of Chundari, and the siege
aud capture of Powni. I' 'ought

regiment marched over 8,000 iles
and engaged the enemy on fourteen

By the presence of mind of the respective engine drivers what threatened to be a terrible railway collision at Barnelby, near Grimsby, one
night recently was reduced to a comparatively trivial mishap. A light
engine had heen allowed to get on
to the main line in front of the Great
Central Continental boat express Ior
Grimsby through    a signalman's er
ror. The driver of the express seeing a collision was inevitable applied
lus brake, while the driver of the
light engine increased his speed iu an
endeavor to keep ahead. The trains,
however, met and both sets of buffets were smashed, hut strange to
sav not a single passenger was Injured
A story is going through the English papers which has the merit of
truth. It was told rather ruefully
by one ol the victims. About eighty London publicans decided to make
a protest at a meeting called iu support of ibe Licensing Hill at Wesley's Chapel. Citv Road. They went
in solemnly in a body, and, instead
of finding themselves' tn what they
believed would be a political mcetinir
they were asked to join first in the
singing of a hymn, then in prayer,
.md finally, after un address, in a
collection. That was the last
straw, and eightv publicans in the
city are having to submit to men
gibes from customers who have heard
tin* story.
Restoration work is to be undertaken in connection with the
Scrouhv church, near Bawtry. on the
confines of Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. At Scroobv Manor house,
which stands near the former palace
ol thc Archbishops of York, now long
since vanished, lived William Brewster, one of the foremost leaders of
the band that sailed in the Mayflower, a bronze tablet on tho wall
of the farmhouse known as "The
Grange," was erected bv the Pilgrim
Society of Plymouth, Massachusetts,
U.S.A,, to mark the site where once
slood Brewster's house. Much of the
old oak work remains in the church,
but the font, with other relics, has
been secured by descendants of the
Pilgrim Fathers for America.
"What is insolvency to a man in
the fishing business?" remarked a
smack owner recently at Yarmouth
county court in asking Judge Wilmot
lo granl him his discharge in bankruptcy, "A man," he added, "mav
be owing £100 or £500 and clear
himself in llve-and-twenty minutes."
The judge looked surprised, hut the
debtor's solicitor confirmed the statement, adding that many a boat went
to sea heavily insolvent but got a
good catch, and came back £100 or
£200 to tho good. As the debtor
would not consent fo the judgment
being entered against bim to secure
live shillings in the pound to his
creditors his discharge was refused.
Camhray Chapel, Cheltenham, has
lost a substantial legacy under remarkable circumstances. A week or
two ago the death took place of Mr.
John Sims, one of the trustees and a
regular attendant of the church.
Camhray Chapel was not represented
af the funeral. When, a few hours
hours later, deceased s will was
rend a codicil, dated 1803. stated
that, the Camhray Baptist Chapel
funds were to benefit to thc extent
of £1000 for each deacon attending
the funeral. There are nine deacons,
aud Camhray Chapel's loss is therefore apparent. Deceased had fre-
dticntlv helped the chapel financially
during his lifetime.
For the first time on record a woman is to receive Lloyd's medal for
saving Uic at sea. Miss Kate Gilmour, upon whom the committee ol
Lloyd's have decided to confer the
signal honor of a silver medal, was
stewardess of the S.S. Sardinian,
which was destroyed bv fire off Malta
on November 25. Miss Gilmour
would not be persuaded tu enter a
bout until all the women and children
had been rescued. She remained on
board urging and encouraging thc
panic-stricken Arabs to avail themselves of the only means of escape,
uid her coolness and cournge contributed to   the saving of manv lives.
An aged brother and sister, living
at Aycliffc, Durham, have tor six
years received out-relief from the
Guardians of Darlington union. Recentlv they received an intimation
that a relative had left them a legacy
of £100. The relieving officer heard
of the matter, and promptly claimed
llie legacy on the ground that the
Guardians were entitled to repayment
of the amount they had allowed in
out-relief. Meanwhile the couple remain destitute, and so will have to
depend on the Guardians for their
sustenance.
Four children, thc eldest only seven
vears of age, were discovered, cold
and hungry, at Bristol, awaiting the
return ot their father, Philip Honey,
an unemplayed asphalter and a widower. There had not been a fire in
thc house tor a week. A kindly
neighbor gave the children food, and
the eldest child stated that she aud
the others had been sit tin- up all
nifht "as daddy did not come home."
Later in the day the hodv of a man

men Irom the Vernon attended the
funeral at Portsmouth recently of
Mrs, Jane, wife of Mr. Fred T. Jane,
the well-known writer on naval sub-
iects. To meet a wish which had
been expressed bv Mrs. Jane, the
"dismal death colors of black and
white" were avoided, the coffin being
draped in violet and pale pink, representing the dead lady's favorite tlow-
ers—violets and carnations. A
wreath sent hy friends in the Japanese navv was composed ol scarlet
geraniums and yellow chrysanthemums.
While walking mist a small nlanta-
tiou some distance from Grateh
(Hampshire) recently, a gentleman
saw a horse's head fixed between two
limbs of a tree, and on going ■■- ti
it be found thc animal dead. It had
been ridden by a eroom. who in following the hounds had become unseated. The horse bolted and, apparent l>* while galloning at a high
"teed came into contact with the
fork between thc limbs of a tree
with such force as to cause its death
and the fork kept the dead in position.

I   OBSERVATIONS \
« BV THK UI.D MAN. I
It .seems as if (.'ali^aiy will have
in have an Inspector ot weights and
measures. It i-t alleged that some
of the conl dealers do not give proper
weight. The proper regulation of
weights ami measures is a good thing
in any eily. It protects hnth tho
buyer nnd the sHIer.
Last Thursday was thc 62nd birthday of Thomas A, I-Jdison, the (am-
mis American electrician who was
horn in 1847.
Uranbrook will some day in the
near future lie on n C.P.R. mam line
botweon Montreal ami Seattle. Thu
iM'.H. has secured control of tho
Wisconsin Central and ii is reported that it is negotiating for tbe
I'cro Marquette, a railway with a
main line fiom Detroit to Chicago.
The Wisconsin Central gives the C.p.
1!. an entrance to Chicago from the
west and lhe Pore Marquette would
provide it with a direct route to
Detroit, where it would join the present line running to Montreal. Thus
it will he seen the road would have
practically a direct route trom Montreal, through Chicago and St. Paul,
ami llience over the Soo line to
Spokane and on to Seattle. Once
ihe Pore Marquette is acquired this
route would come into actuil existence imd Cranhrook would be on the
main line of traffic between the two
oceans*.

The editor of tbe Summerland Review is a newspaper man. In an
article with the heading "To Review
Correspondents," he says:
"The editorial columns ol the
Review are devoted to tbe editor's personal views oa all pub-
lit; questions of interest, and
communications such as the one
referred to will always be welcomed hv the editor, who is not
hy any means .selfish enough to
imagine that others have not
ideas as well as himself; and
courts criticism of anything that
may appear in these columns,
whether complimentary or otherwise, so long as personalities are
omitted."
This is the doctrine that the Herald has always prenrlmd and which
it slands by.
Application has been made lo par-
liaiiieni for an extension of time for
tin* const ruction of the Kootenay
Central railway. Mr. Goodeve, representative from the Koot-enpys, is
opposing the extension unless some
work is done this year. Good for
(ioodeve. What wc want here is
more work on the. Kootenay Central
atni less extension ot time. The
people or the Kootenay valley, fToin
Golden tn Fori Steele, have heen
fooled long enough and have i>he right
lo demand  railway, transportation.
The election of Minister Templeman
h\ acclamation insures for British
Columbia a cabinet minister for the
next four or live vears. The llvrald
maintains that that is good hnsiness
aud good politics.
The inauguration of President-elect,
Tnft on the fourth of next March

The people of  Revelstoke are

The people of British Columbia
e a right to ask for a duty on
lumber. Kvery great Industry
Canada is protected by a tariff and
tliere is no reason whv the manuEuc
turcrs ol lumber should nnt enjoy the
same privilege.
The Herald would like to sw the
ranhrook Board n! Trade give a dollar dinner, on which occasion nothing
would he nerved except Ihat produced ju ihe Cranbrixik district. This
would prove a his advertisement for
thc district and the majority of
property owners and wahe-earners ia
the district should be present. There
will he during the next, six months
hundreds of inquiries as to the
lands of this district aud a large
number of people coming here for the
purpose nf investigating the possibilities nf fruit culture. The Cranbrook district has the land and tbe
climate and what it needs is a live
iganw-atinn to look alter tbe interests of this community. Tbat is
what a Hoard of Trade Is for, hut
vou cammt make a successful Board
of Trgde by s-tmplv electing officers.
The people'as a whole must do their
part and it is time for the
people of this district to wake up
and take advantage ol the glorious
opportunities that are presented.
A visitor from the prairie remarked yesterday:     "Come to Cranbrook
hu n dav aud stay forever."

Is becoming a possibility. A herd of
six Asiatic Yaks are coming to tbo

endeavor to populate the Northwest

THR GARNISHEE GRAFT.
The mosl satisfactory law that was
evei made for graders that prey on
railroad employes is the Garnishee
Law. It is a law that has ruined
iiinnj a happy home. It has been
Llie cause of many good, honest men
hefng thrown out ot employment.
tt mutters not how good a job a
man may have, or bas had, he is likely lo gel into straightened circumstances sometime, and if he is untor-
tduute enough to owe a penson any
mull or lurge hill and cannot pay It,
the lirst thing thc creditor thinks
about is thc mighty Garnishee Law,
uot earing whether his creditor ever
does another day's work or not, just
so be (the creditor) can get to discomfort the party indebted to him.
It has worked more injustice than
it has ever worked justice. The
great railroad corporations ot this
country will not tolerate employes
being garnisheed, but it seems to do
some of the grafters good to garnishee some poor unfortunate and make
him a lot of unnecessary expense and
perhaps cause him to lose his position.
I think such a law as the Garnishee
Law should be annulled forever. We
may perhaps have some genuine
"dead heats" employed on railroads
who would make a practice ot using
their credit because they could not be
garnisheed, if such were thc case. It
would do good one way hut injure in
another way—that is, for some men
who go on a new job without any
means of support.
I for one am in for seeing if there
could not be some way ot doing away
with ibis Garnishee Law all over
Canada or having it declared unconstitutional.

GORDON MILNE    PASSES AWAY
IN BRANDON.
Tbo deepest svmpathv of the whole
Cranhrook community will lie felt
for Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Worden and
for James Milne, on the sudden and
earl'* death of their brother, Oordon
Milne, at the youthful age of 2H
vears. On Friday, February 12th,
at 7 p.m. the young man was tound
dead in his bed in the Hrandon hotel,
Urandon. He had gone there on a
visit from Broadview,    Man., where ' J^'tions
thing lor tho local corps here, which
is so small.
The reciting done by Mrs. Plant
was much appreciated. Tins was
shown by tho loud applause.
The Major tnld ot the many countries he had visited, and the peculiarities of the diflerent nations, and the
wav lie explained things brought the
bouse down with laughter.
Thirty-thrce countrles have been
visited by bim, and tbe beautiful
message of "Jesus and His Love"
j has been   proclaimed   to tbe heathen
Love's
(i.ildri
working for the past
tte had been
year,
Mr. Milne spent sumc months in
Cranbrook about a vear ago working
for bis brother-in-law, W. K. Worden, and while here made many
warm friends who always found him
kind and obliging, and it is with
great regret that the" will hear that
his promising life hns been so early
closed.
It is all the more sad that this
death is the first break in the family. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Milne,
are still living in Port Perry, Ont.,
where his brother, David Milne, and
his sister, Mrs. Vincent, are also living. Mrs. Whitfield, of Rlackston,
Ont. (the birthplace of the deceased)
is another sister, as is also Mrs.
Pierce of London, Eng., and Mrs.
Worden, of Cranhrook. James
Milne, of this citv, is also a brother.
Mrs. Worden and James Milne went
east on Monday to Port Perrv, Ont.,
where the interment will take place.

Tbc people who attended the musical meeting in the Methodist church
given hy Major and Mrs, Plant, o!

be forgotlcn. On many occasions I
had the pleasure of hearing many
people sav: "It's the best ever produced in the city of Cranbrook."
This   is, no doubt, nn encouraging
Music aad song is something that
will touch thc hearts of men, women
and children and bring them hack to

will. They both possess great ability, and God grant that thev shall

TIIK MOTHER'S SPIRIT.
When the mother's spirit is impatient, petulant, ami lirev, can she ex
peel her children to be gentle? When
sin* gnvt'ius hy shouting, scolding,
and threatening, can she expect them
to speak gentiv In otic another, or
iteti to herself Will she not see in
the carriage and demeanor nl her
children a reflection of her own spirit
ami life? If a mother is worldly-
minded and fond of ornamental dress
and show, can she expect her family
lo litww up tu humility?
ti the mother is in ihe habit, in
hei common conversation, of coloring tacts, of exaggerating what sht
bears and relates, can she exnect her
children lo grow up with a love ami
reverence far the truth?
The tempers and dispositions nf
parents, whether good or bad. whether lovely or hateful, make such tin-
iiiessinns on the sou's of their children Ihal Ihev aie like seeds implant*
I'd within them, which shall take
root, and glow, and form part of
lheir future character. .Main* an an

Hoy's Agony   Relieved   by Zam-Buk.
. If you are suffering from badly-
[chapped hands you will be able to
comprehend a little ol the agonv
which Henry Walker, ol 14 Manufacturers Street, Montreal, endured belore Zam-Buk gave him relief. His
mother, telling of the case to a press
representative, said:
"Henry works with tus shirt
■Jeeves rolled up above his elbows,
and passing Irom a warm loom to
the bttiug cold, as he was obliged to
do, ho got the worst case i,f chapped
hands and aims I have ever seen.
From his lingers to his elbows was
one mass of raw flesh, with bad
cracks here nnd there Whenever he
washed, it brought tears lu his eyes,
the pain was so acute He tried
several kinds of salves, but nothing
relieved turn until ho tried '/am-Duk.
This balm seemed to take away the
burning and smarting almost at once.
The cracks began to heal, und a lew
application*- of tiie bulm cured him.
llis hands and arms are now smooth
and soft.
"We have also used Zam-Buk lor
other emergencies. I sustained a
bum oh one of my lingers. Zam-Buk
it. tbe lire out and healed up tho
sore. It really seems a wonderful
household preparation.
"On one occasion my son Harry
ihad his foot frozen, ft was very
| swollen and discolored, but Zam-Buk
both relieved the swelling and removed the discoloration. Zam-Buk is so
handy and so effective that we shall
always keep a supply handy."
Miss Hattlo Demand, oi Salisbury
(Ont.), says: "Every winter 1 suiter
from chapped hands, hut 1 have found
a cure in Zam-Buk. Applied at
night, it heals thc cracks hy morning, and takes away all the soreness."
Similar effects follow its use for
eczema, scalp sores, blood-poisoning,
ulcers, ringworm, children's sores,
cuts, bums and bruises. It also
cures piles. All druggists nnd stores
