over to the Council of the Order in
llie devastated city a sum of WO.OtlU
to tie used as a free gift, li is a re-
markable fact that the council, tho
doitcesof this tree grant, ha\e repaid

within a short time repay the balance
of a sum that they were under no

social side of the organisation, the
Knights of Columbus in lhe State ol
Washington will, at their own expense, entertain all their visiting
oretliren, free ot charge or expense,
at the heattie exhibition during the
coming summer, providing euides and
bureau of information uu the
grounds of the exposition. There
can be no doubt but this hospitality
will be largely availed of. Indeed,
one wonders at what such an undertaking means in thc matter of keeping open bouse tor the tens of thousands who may come wandering .and
wondering Scattlewards.
Muring us twemy-setcn years ui
at'iuc work tbe oracr has accomplished much. It is human and
Hiauiemaiical logic to thimt thai .1
a in accomplish mure and ihat its
eincieiicy will increase with the
square of ils increasing memuership
ai it.au a.m. on Monday me candidates for membership and the visiting members assembled at tbe Auditorium. The time irom tbat hour
to the early afternoon was occupied
in conferring the first degree of the
order; and the afternoon, until as
lai-e as tf.30, in the lodge work of the
second aud third degrees. About
JU o'clock the entire body assembled
at the Cranbrook hotel for thc ban-
,|uet, at which covers were laid lor
100 guests. Even though the bes.
disposition was made of tbe spat*'
available in lhe dining room by an
arcangement of the tables in a hollow paralellogran, still every seat
was occupied both on the inside and
on the outside ol thc tables, and
some twenty-five member had afterwards to lie accommodated at a second table. All in all, over one
iiundred and fifty members of tbe order were assembled in Cranbrook Ior
the occasion, the names and addresses
of some of our visitors not being
available when going to press.
The banquet was a most enjoyable
function. Thc viands were excellent,
the decorations were beautifully effective, tbe service was up to the
best traditions of the house. "Vic"
Rollins saw lu the details personal*
and "Vic", be it said, is a mighty
organizer of feasts and is a host in
himself. It was a kindly, cordial
fellowship, where, tor once in a
while, the clergymen did not leave
all the gaiety of life to the laymen.
It is a pity that their example in
this regard is not more extensively
imitated.
The mfislc of Mr. Corrison's orchestra was decidedly good. It was
worthy of the music ho always provided for the public, and tbat is saying a great deal. There was a song,
, am] speeches galore, In com-
menting on such functions the Herald makes il a rule not to refer
specially lu any particular item in an
evening's programme, Hut for once
this rule must fairly tie departed
from and special mention, and special
praise, be given to the speeches ol
P. J. Nolan, the Territorial Deputy
of Alberta, of J. D. Brync, thc Territorial Deputy ot British Columbia,
and of tlie Rev. Father Beck, ot the
St. Eugene Mission, who very
specially distinguished himself.

Cross of Honor
the Blue Ribbon
America's leadership in the march of progress has now
become something more than a mere patriotic belief.
It has not only been conceded, but has been proclaimed in trumpet
tones by a congress of the nations of the world.
National pre-eminence has found equal expression and appreciation in international
preference for
Pabst
BlueRibbon
The   Beer   of  Quality
Sales both at kome and abroad have indicated this preference before; but today it
Jtands conclusively proven by tbe croM of konor and medals illustrated on this page—
trophies of a competition which marks an epock in tbe history of brewing.
By these decorations, and by the diploma which accompanied them, the International Pure Food and Hygienic Exposition at Antwerp declares Pabst Blue Ribbon to
be absolutely the finest of the world's brews—the peer of all beers in purity, nutritive
properties ana general excellence.
The true significance of this award lies not alone in the fact that famous American
and European beers were entered in the competition; but that Pabst Blue Ribbon was the
only beer that successfully withstood all the prescribed tests.
Other beers deteriorated; they changed color; or lost their taste. Pabst Blue
Ribbon alone showed a perfect score, and thus proved itself
veritably the one real "Beer of Quality.'
This award is no surprise to those who know Pabst; but it is worth pondering by
those who drink other beers, or none.
The perfection of Pabst Blue Ribbon is the logical result of a lifetime devoted to
the attainment of perfection in brewing.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is a nutritious beer because it contains all of the food portion
of the barley grain—a result of the Pabst eight day natural malting process.
Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer is an invigorating beer because it contains the tonic properties of the choicest hops.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is a pure beer because it is made under perfect conditions of care
and cleanliness.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is the ideal home beverage because it contains a very small percentage (3io*0 of alcohol.    It is truly a temperate drink, invigorating and healthful.

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
Tell Mary you love her just like
vou used to. It may surprise her
but it will do her good.
Who says a woman has nothing to
do? In one year she cooks breakfast, dinner and supper each Stifi
times, washes dishes 1,005 times,
gets the children ready for school
twice a day for 180 days, and puts
the hahy to sleep 1,560 times, not
to mention a few other odd jobs.
lu home there should he no jar, no
striving for place, no insisting on
prerogatives, or division of interest.
The husband and wife are each the
complement of the other. And it is
as much his duly to he cheerful as it
is hers to sweep and garnish the
[ileasant interior. A familv where
the dally walk of tlie father makes
life a festival, la Idled with heavenly
benediction.
Let no young mail of Industry and
perfect honostv despair beoatlse his
profession or calling is crowded. Let
him always remember that there is
room enough at the top. and that
the question whether be is ever to
reach the top. or rise above the
crowd nt the base of the pvramid,
will be decided bv tbe wav iii which
be improves the first ten vcars in
securing to himself a thorough knowledge of his profession, and a sound
moral and  intellectual culture.
Vou may think it weak or childish,
if you please, but it is the admired
wife—the wife who hears words of
praise, and who-receives smiles of
commendation—who is capable, discreet -and executive. We have seen a
timid, meek, self-distrustful little
body blossom out into strong, self-
reliant womanhood under thc tonic
and cordial companionship of a husband who really went out of his way
to find occasion for showing her how
much he trusted her judgment and
how tenderly he referred to her opinion.
Love always gives. Service has a
thousand forms. Sometimes it is
poverty that stands at our door and
relief is wanted. More often it is
not money nor bread, but something
more precious, friendship, sympathy.
Sorrow or loneliness is before us. A
mother's heart is breaking. Money
would be useless—it would be a
mockery. Hut we can hold to the
neighbor's lips a cup of thc wine of
love, tilled out of our own heart,
which will hearten the sufferer. Or
it is the anguish of a life struggle, a
human Gethsemane, beside which we
are called to watch. We can give no
actual aid—the soul must fight its
battles alone; but wc can be as the
angel that ministered to our Lord's
(iethsemane, imparting strength and
helping the weary struggler to win
the victory.
ONE DAY.
lt is beautiful to give one day to
the ideal—to have one day apart.
One day for generous deeds, good
will, gladness.
One day to forget the shadows, the
rain, tin' storms of life; to remember
tbe sunshine, tbe happiness ol youth
and health.
One day to forget the trials and
thorns on the winding path, to remember the fruits and (lowers.
One day in which to forget yourself
ami think lovingly of others.
One day for tbe family, thc tire-
side, fur the wife and children, for
lhe love and laughter, the joy and
rapture of home.
One day in which books and stocks
and deeds and notes, and interest ami
mortgage, ami all kinds of business
and trade arc forgotten, and all
stores and shops and factories, and
offices and banks, and ledgers and
accounts, and lawsuits are cast aside,
put away and locked up, and the
weary heart and brain are given a
voyage to fairyland.
Let us hope that such a dav is a
prophesy of what all days will be.
Do not take up babies every time
they cry or they will soon learn to
cry a groat deal for that purpose.
De sure tbat they are made comfortable iu every particular, and •♦ will
not hurt them to cry a little, and
l be wailing will soon cease if the
chilli's wishes arc not gratified. It
is easier than one would at first suppose to leach infants to go to sleep
wit bout rocking, singing, or telling
stories to Ihem. It is a temptation
to fold a sweet baby in one's arms
and lull it tn sleep, hut when we
contemplate tlio number of times
Mini this must he done when we have
not time for il, it is better to fore-
go the pleasure. Regin just as you
wish to continue, insisting upon as
great a regularity ns possible in its
eating, sleeping and all t limes;* watch
closely and do not let little habits
form ' that will be a trouble afterward, such as leaving a light for the
liltle ones to go to sleep by, and a
legion of others too numerous to
mention. Most children are overfed,
ami thev fret and cry and arc unmanageable iu consequence.
HOME-MAKING   AND HOME-MAKERS.
To the true man or woman thero
can be nothing more agreeable on
earth than the business ot home-
making; and all who are not home-
makers miss the best part ot their
mission in life. Whoever makes ft
home, in thc best sense of thc word,
is a real benefactor to thc race; lor
every true home is the abode ot ioy,
peace, happiness and security to
those that share in it, and exerts an
influence that is incalculable* for the
amelioration of the whole human
family, many a prodigal has been
ted by tho thought ot home, and the
makers of his own particular home,
to repent of his sins and to change
liis course in lite; and many an unfortunate one has been saved in the evil
hour trom suicide, or worse, by the
tender recollections of home, a fond
mother's prayers, an indulgent lather's counsels, or a sister's or brother's tenderness.
Yes, whoever helps to make a true
home confers a benefit on mankind
that no man can fully estimate. Indeed, the influence of tlte true home
for good is absolutely incalculable,
aud reaches many even that never enter its inner circle. Simply to get a
glimpse of it is to receive an Impulse toward better things, to obtain
a more exalted view ol Hie, and to
feel an access of faith la God and tbe

§' OBSERVATIONS |
•1 BV THE OLD MAN. I
Last Saturday was the sard birthday of the ex-Empress Eugenie,
Widow of Napoleon llie Third. Few
women now living can look back upon experiences so varied and full ol
contrast as the old, leeblo and exiled
Empress. sin* was horn in Granada, Spain, iu 1826, Eugenie dc
Moulijo. Her lather was a Spanish
grandee, while tier mother was a
Mrkputriek, of the Scotch-Irish
sim'h. siif was married In 18-53 and
until the fall of Sedan, the impri-
soiuiHiit of Napoleon, and the siege
of Paris, reigned iu great magnificence. The days of the Commune followed and tin- story of her escape to
England, under tin- protection of Dr.
Evans, tin- American dentist, is a
matter of history. only her banished husband ami her only son, the
Prince Imperial, who died fighting
for his adopted country in Zululand
in 1878, remained to her. The Emperor died at Chisleliuist soon after
lie came to England,
Canada's population is said to he
7,0011,000, which is an increase of
1,800,000, or nearly a I bird since
IllOl. Truly the 30lh century is
Canada's growing time.
If it could be arranged it would ire
a good thing if the Australian delegates to thc Imperial Press conference iu London, who are now crossing
Hit- Dominion, could return by way of
the Crow so that they might see thc
Kootenays.
Fruit lauds are tlie main subject of
conversation today. And rightly so.
Mining, timber mid agriculture have
been well advertised iu this district
iu the |»ast and each and everyone of
them have their good points and
each and everyone of them have made
money for a number of people, but
Iruit growing is thc infant industry
of the country, uud as an infant industry must he fostered. Tbe Board
of Trade arc doing all in their power to let the outside world know the
possibilities and tlie resources of
this section of the country. Wc
who live here know what has been
done and what ean he done in the
way of fruit growing, but what is
needed is that the outside world
should know. That tbe people of
Dakota, Manitoba, Minnesota, Ontario, Iowa, Saskatchewan, Montana
and Alberta should know. That the
people of Great Britain and Ireland
should know. That people all over
the States of the Union should know.
Mow can this he done? By individual effort. II everybody in the country would lake the trouble, and it is
uol much trouble, to get some of
the Board of Trade pamphlets and
semi them to their friends, this
would he distinctly helping out the
cause. It is uot 'so much a matter
of boost as & matter of telling the
plain, unvarnished truth to the
world. "Tell the truth and shame
the devil," js all anyone has to do
to show what East 'Kootenay really
is,     Do it.
William .Jennings Bryan, has becn
giving a lecture in Winnipeg, and
with exceedingly bad taste, the Winnipeg Free Press commented upon
what it calls his American accent.
Why iu the name of all tbat is fair
and square, should not an American
have an American accent. Brains
are what, count, not accent, and Mr.
Bryan has demonstrated to the whole
civilized world that he has the
brains and also that he is one of the
most eloquent speakers of the present day.
The Sultan of Turkey has 210
cooks. No wonder his broth is
spoiled.
Boston, Mass., will have a world's
fair in 1020 lo celebrate the tercentenary of the landing of the Pilgrim
Fathers, which took place in 1620.
If you want to boost Cranbrook
and this ilistriet keep planting fruit
trees.
The advertising columns of thc Herald this week demonstrate the fact
that fhc people appreciate a good
advertising medium, Anybody in
Cranbrook who has anything to sell
naturally advertises in the Herald,
for tin' reason that everybody in the
district  reads the Herald.
Cranhrook will have on the 24 th
and 2Jth of this month one ot the
very best race meetings ever held in

wav of securing entries that insures

un to every resident of the eity, who
takes an interest in these matters,
to send word to their friends that

Cranbrook.

NONTHLY BOARD UF TIME MEETING

who has tbe interest of the town at
heart should be a member of the

the more members there are and the
more interest manifested by tbe
members the greater will he tire success of the board during the year.

FOOTBALL
Ou Monday evening the Caledonian

BIG
IMPROVEMENTS  AT
MANITOBA.
THE
Thc growing prosperity of Cranbrook and the surrounding district is
noticeable in a great many ways.
The country is being rapidly developed iu the way of improvement among
the ranchers, the very large planting
of fruit trees, improvement of old
buildings and the erection of substantial new ones, all of which is indicative of the growing confidence iu
tbe future of Cranbrook and district.
Among the old buildings now being
renovated is the Manitoba hotel, recently rented and managed by James
Brown, late of Wardner. That Mr.
Brown has confidence in the future of
Cianbrook is shown by the extensive
improvements he is making, in tact
the whole building is being thoroughly gone over, both inside and in its
trout, where plate glass windows are
being put in, and when the work is
finished the whole will present as well
an appointed building as almost any
in the city. The front especially will
be a great improvement and a credit
not only to Mr. Brown, but the city.
Mr. Brown is doing a first-class business, is well thought of by the
people of the city, who wish him the
success he certainly deserves for his
efforts in the direction of general improvements.

Past Master S. H. Hosklns at 9.30,
] who was acting in the place ol the
present Master, W. H. Wilson, who
was unavoidably absent on account of
sickness. The second degree was
exemplified, and alter a short preliminary address hy the Grand Mas-
TH E offer to give the people the benefit of our necessities, as the stock must be reduced before the
Ladles' Department is moved to new quarters, has been
eagerly accepted, as the low prices have proven very
attractive. But more goods must be sold, as it is better to
sell at reduced prices than move the stock. This applies to
everything in our big store, and prices have been slashed in
every department. Mr. Hill will return within a week to
superintend the removal of the Dry Ooods and Dress Goods,
and the stock must be greatly reduced before that time.
Mr. Hill has so ordered, and says that we are to CUT
PRICES STILL LOWER, so that the goods
may be sold.
NOW IS YOUR CHANCE for the big line
of bargains in
Dry Goods, Dress Goods, Clothing, Shoes.

With some atony lmilans auu torn

Dawson; they said they did not mww
auyuung alftmt erudo petroleum aim
so as to give them an idea oi it, l
mixed Up a cup ut molasses ami eoal
oil and lotd them it tluy ever louim
anything that resembled and smelt
lihe thai il would be etude oil.
Shortly afterwards a atony Indian
repotted a spring ol oil and 1 stain d
a lorty acre claim.
3. William Aid rich, Mormon, who
is credited witli tho discovery ol this
ml was working loi me al thc time
ami wauled some oil to grease Ins
machiucry. 1 gave *•'*■ bottle ot
etude oil which 1 had mvsell collected. Hi' asked me whore 1 got
il, I told him and he went up,
huiit n log cabin and started iu.
He found by digging away a lew
feet of earth in certain places that
considerable oil would ooze out of
the saturated graVol beds, so he made
a wooden pump with which he pumped gallon nftei* gallon nml curried it
out mi tin cans .strapped on lhe hack
of a cayu.se and disposed o! it to
ranchers lor lubricating purposes,
lie actually made his living (or
years hy selling this oil at $1.00 per
gallon.
3. There are some eighteen springs
in sight in this vieinitr, the most
extensive of the whole lot is on the
Pincher Creek Oil company's properly, in faet ns largo as all the rest
combined. Immediately across the
range anil about twenty miles distant, you strike the seepages on
Page Creek, Flathead country, British Columbia, where there are forty
two seepages; one swamp so called ol
about ten acres, Is literally saturated wilh oil. But this oil Alters in
quality and character Irom that
found on the Pincher Creek.property,
being commercially of far less value.
I. Mr. .lohn Drader drilled a well
near Mr. Aid rich'* cabin, about 100(1
yards from the big seepages, and I
hnppened lo he there one dav "when a
man rushed from the drilling rie and
shouted, "Mv Ood hoys, come nnd sec
the lie." Thc well wns 1hen (lowing
at lhe rate of 300 barrels in 24
hours. This gusher continued Intermittently for a week, flowing by
measurement about 350 barrels,
when it settled down to pumping an
working. Not being satisfied with
this production, it was decided to
drill deeper with the hopes ol striking a bigger well. In tbe meantime
some spiteful individual plugged this
well with blacksmith tools, governor
balls and scrap iron, etc., which have
been impossible to remove.
5. This is truly a great oil field,
worth millions. I have thrown in
my mite and do not consider that
there is a richer proposition on
earth today than the coal oil enterprise now being conducted by the
local citizens ol this district.
Pitch in, dig iu, shove iu ami   wire
in, is the advice ol an Old Timer.

The Best Furniture Ever
Seen in Cranbrook
THAT was the verdict of those who attended our Big Sale of
Furniture last week.
Even the cold snap of last week did not throw a damper over the
Furniture Sale.
Our Opening brought volumes of business, which was indeed
gratifying.
Our Offerings Are Better Than Before
You realize what splendid values are offered the moment you
walk along the avenues of Furniture on the Second Floor.
Your Savings Are Marvelous
Our prices are extraordinarily low.
We know you can save money and comparisons will prove it.
This week we promise still better bargains because, owing to
building operations, we are forced to make some great sacrifices in
order to secure the needed space quickly, as Mr. Fink is in the East
selecting Furniture and has purchased two carloads, and we must
have space.
We have a stock extensive enough to make selection easy; varied
enough to please every taste and purse; good enough to enable us
to absolutely guarantee each and every piece, and our prices are low
enough to win your patronage after the most thorough and complete comparisons are made.
An Inspection Will Convince You
