Mrs. Hnslnm, returned to her home
on Sunday.
Tho cold weather which set in last
week-end has been continuing with
unseasonable vigor ever since, but
now shows signs of breaking. In
the meantime there has been some-
lliliiK of a rush to get stoves set up,
and the question of fuel supply for
the winter has been brought to the
fore hi the minds of mnny folks who
like lo leave such matters till the
lust possible date- We are llkoly to
get plenty of nice weather yet, however. The very faet that tho Curling Club lias again made arrange-
ments to rem tlie rink for tlie coming
season is quite sufficient ordinarily
to causo things" to warm up. The

Col. and Mrs. Fred Lister were In
the city this week, arriving on Wednesday. As the Conservative member for KaBlo riding at Victoria, Col.
Lister addressed a meeting of the
Women's Conservative * Study Club
this evening, Thuraday, to which
members of the men's body were
also invited. Mrs. K. L. Staples presided at this meeting, and Col. Lister In his Informal address dealt
very tellingly with the record of the
Oliver government, showing up Its
poor record In connection with its
dealings with the returned men, who
wore not at the present time getting
a square deal. Col. Lister also paid
high tribute to Mr. W. J. Bowser,
leader of the Conservative Opposition
at Victoria, describing him as the
man best fitted to take in hand the direction of the affairs of the province.
Hia own personal observation had
thoroughly convinced him of this. At
the present time Mr. Bowser was the
man whom the Liberal Government
most feared ~- and with good reason.
Col. Lister also strongly denounced
the campaign of Liberal propaganda
which was being carried on against
Mr. Bowser, ln an attempt to discredit him. Tlie record of the govornment nnd the P. G. and E. was nlso touched upon.
,At the close of his address. Col.
Lister was accorded a warm vote of
thanks for his address. Refreshments were serve:! before the meeting broke up.

brook Herald, from now on the business will be under
my personal control and direction.

All my interests lie in Cranbrook, and my energies will go towards giving the city and district the
best service possible in the direction of the business.

stories, und tiie intertfon is to house

the .planing mill machines and the
heavier of the sash and door machinery, us well as the gllzatig and ill-
lug rooms. Upstairs will be the lighter portion of the plant, and space for
bench work, etc %
The company Is likely to .put their
own men on the work of putting up
tho building, bringing them In from
Kitchener when the work now being
undertaken on the dam there is completed. In tho meantime some preliminary clearing up of the site is going on here.
Tho company has acquired the Henderson sash und door plant at Golden,

monument to be erected oo the G. W.

will be about $1800, two-thirds of this
amount already being in the hands
of the city from .public subscription.

Musical circles In thc city will be
tho poorer by tho departure next
week of Mr. L. Douglas Rengger for
New York. He will go to the Vassar
institute, where he will assume some
of the voice production and choral
work in connection with that Institution.
It Is not alone fn Cranbrook that
lie has established a reputation. As
leader of the Knot Church choir, and
of late carrying on his own studio
work, iie has ulso become known to
the people of Cranbrook and district
from his frequent appearances on the
■•oncert platform here. His cultivated baritone has been heard to splendid effect many times in this city.
ami with his violin also he has achieved nn unusual degree of -artistry
which has many times brought him
encores from local audiences.
In the larger centres also Mr-
Rengger'c appearances have been very favorably commented on by the
musical critics. Of one of his appearances there a Vancouver paper
has said:
"Mr. Rengger possesses a grand op-
erlt baritone, Iiis voice being very powerful and under beautiful control,
with an extremely clear enunciation
and fine tone."
Of another occasion the Vancouver Sun said:
"Mr. Rengger haa a well-trained
baritone voice and a very fine platform manner, ar.d we should liked to
have heard more from blm."
Born In England, Mr. Rengger was
in Russia studyinv music at Moscow when tho uprise of the Bolshevik movement began to gain heaa-
way. He made his escape from the
country by way of Siberia and Vladivostok, and subsequently he enlisted
at Vancouver for overseas, transferring fn England to the Flying Corps.
Mr. Rengger olso acted as special interpreter for Viscount Bryce, during
a visit the latter made to Siberia.

don of forged currency.
Word has been received that Mr.
and Mrs. Harry Doris and Miss Grace
Doris were in an accident whereby
their car was struck in the rear by
a train while "attempting a crossing

It Is believed that no very serious injuries were sustained by any of the

Victor Desaulnlers, of Moyle, son
of Mr. and Mrs. V. Desaulnlers. of

an operation for apendicltis which
he underwent last week. He was
only a young man, and much sympathy Is felt for the bereaved family.
The funeral took place on Wednesday morning, service being held in
the Catholic Church, and interment
was made in the Catholic cemetery*
With the progress of the school
term foi" a few days, the congestion
fn the buildings becomes more marked. At the Central" School the lack
of eacommodatlon is especially mark*
ed, over five hundred being enrolled
tliere at present. At the South
Ward there Is an enrolment of over
u hundred, the primary,room being
very crowded. At tho high school
between eighty end ninety are reported on the registers, and the new
commercial course, which on the op
enlng day brought out only an en
rolment of half a doien or so, now
lias eighteen. It will be necessary
to equip this department with
three or four new typewriters by
present appearances.
Little Election
Excitement Yet
Organization Meetings Will Be
Held Shortly is Probability
ami Campaign Will Open
It is not expected that there will
be a great deal of election excitement
pparent at least till the date is definitely announced from Ottawa.    It
is believed that it will be called for
tbout the 88th of November.
Any discussion as to possible can-
lidates in this riding is premature,
to say the least- Till the formal organization of the parties Is effected,
all will be conjecture and speculation
aud nothing more.
Elsewhere some steps are being taken to line up candidate-!. Mr. M. A.
Macdonald is btleved to be the like-
y Liberal candidate in Burrard, ap*
-roaches having been made to him In
iliis connection. In Vancouver ctty
H. H. Stebens, who will in all llkell-
iood go tefore his constituents as a

has consented to run if her nonima-
lion is desired.

places, and the public revolts
at the spectacle forced into its
sight. The combination of
wealth and fame which comes
so quickly to some of the famous stars proves more than
they can control. They make
money, and plenty of it, merely
by capitalizing what natural
attractiveness they have been
endowed with. No doubt gen
erous applications of grit and
perseverance are also requisite to success on the screen
but the fact remains that no
other profession can show
such rapid and spectacular
steps up to fame.
The pity of it is that occurrences such as have been so
prominently detailed on the
front pages of the big dailies
Ihese last few days, do much to
put the movies in a false light.
They undoubtedly help to create the misconception that the
same bizarre atmosphere in
which some of the stars seem
to move pervades all movie
land. Many people will prefer to believe that there are
some screen artists whose private lives are just as sweet and
clean as the phases they portray on the screen. The movies constitute one of the greatest educational agencies in ex
istence today. Occurrences of
the nature now before the public, and whicli have been
brought before the notice of
the public in the past few
months, besides poisoning the
public mind, do a great deal to
keep the development of the
moving picture along educational lines from Its proper
isting lariff, but keeping to the
fore at all times the principle
of protection for the established industries of the nation, and
not losing sight either of the
revenue requirements of the
One must go back to 1911 to
find any parallel for the conditions under which the coming election will be fought. At
that time the great issue was
reciprocity with tlie United
States. The election of 1917
was held under wartime conditions whicli precluded any
domestic issues from getting
proper consideration. In 1911
much was heard from the followers of Sir Wilfred Laurier
of the "tariff wall" which il
was said had been built up.This
policy it was alleged had served its purpose, and iis abandonment was urged upon the
people by the Liberal party.
To talk at this time of any "tariff wall" is nol in accordance
with the facts. However tlie
revenue of the country was raised at one time, it is a fact that
at the present not over fifty
per cent, of the nation's income
is derived from the tariff. The
tariff wall" *— if it ever existed — does not at this time appear to be nearly as high. Nor
is it, In point or ract. Tlie
Meighen government is uot a
high tariff parly, as any one
knows who has taken tliu
trouble lo follow things up. it
does stand for the principle of
protection, but not necessarily
a high tariff.
This makes the more difficult of understanding the declaration of Hon. Mackenzie
King, to the effect that the Liberal party stands for "a sane
middle course." Presumably the
impression lie wished to convoy was that he stood between
the Progressives as free traders
and tha present government as
high protectionists. As a matter of fact this places neither one of these groups in their
correct position. The real
truth is that between the position of thc Farmers or Progressives and the Meighen government on the tariff question
there is not room for any "mid
die position," sane or otherwise. Certainly there is no
footing for any party which
is hoping to regain its lost vigor. The only remedy for the
political anaemia which has
beset the Dominion Liberal
Party is a fusion with the Pro
gressives. Sooner or later it
will probably come about, and
in the meantime it will be seen
that in many constituencies
where there are Farmers' candidates to contest the seat with
the government the Liberals
will be content to remain out
of the fray.
The franchise is being extended at tbis time to a large mini
ber of womer voters. Attempts
are being made this early in
the campaign to brand the government of Hon. Arthus Mel
gben as devotees at tlie altar of
high protection, and the Liberals or Progressives as the
liberators of the country as if
it were enslaved with the
chains of a prohibitive tariff.
The new electorate is urged to
keep this point clear in their
minds notwithstanding what
ever representations are made
lo the contrary by opponents of
the government.

Since the people were Riven
to understand by the Premier
that an election was pending,
and would in all probability be
held before the close of the
year, there has not been a
great deal of open activity displayed from any of the chief
political camps. A good deal
has been going on behind the
scenes, however, and there has
been some natural combing of
the ridings to pick up what
parliamentary material would
appear to be in sight to bring
out as prospective candidates.
Now is the time for the average elector to get clearly in
mind the great issue upon
which the election is to be
fought — the tariff question,

in effect the decision of tho immediate Issue would seem to lie entirely
wiili the members of the Dull Elr-
ounn." Theirs is indeed an awful responsibility, and those who bear it
would be fully justified in pleading
thut since they wero elected rather
for the .purpose of waging war than
tbat of settling tlie terms of peace,
they are entitled to transfer it to the
broader shoulders of tlie Irish people. They may not choose this
course. \t they do no*, lho tempor
ary fate of Ireland may hang upon
the dlscus!.ious of the next few duys.

Sinn Fein leaders will realize their

fellow-subjects and to their descendants. They have been offered peace,:

they dare to reject it?-—London Times.
If the .popular preference for luxuries wero limited to fine and expensive shoes, the mutter would not be
wortii a second thought; but what
happening with respect to footwear is merely symptomatic of a gen-
em! tendency. Tco many people
are trying to buy luxuries and work
less at the same time- If production kept puce with our easy habits
of spending, a reasonable balance
would be preserved. But that is not
occurring. Many are demanding
more pay and shorter hours, which is
QUlte tho wrong way to reach tlie
end In view. If Canadian industry
were entirely self-contained, in the
sense that the full production of the
country was equalled by the domestic consumption, we might be indifferent to what is going on elsewhere.
Hut that is tho very thing we cannot
do. Prices are governed by world
conditions, and our prosperity as a
producing country turns directly on
the inexorable law of supply nnd demand in universal operation- If we
work less by units we produce less
in the aggregate, and to tha; precise
degree wo lose in real wealth. Purchasing power and wealth art in such
a situation synonymous. We are able to buy in proportion us wc have
produced. It ls all summed up in
this: That it is inexorably true -of
nations as it Is of individuals, that
the volume of work has a direct relation to the volume of wealth at
any given time. Which is another
way of saying that wo only have
what we earn.—Ottawa Journal.

It may bu of interest to know what

I The leading company, with head-

As a "rural unit" the regiment is

A Satisfied Customer
Last spring an experienced buyer of printing in
large quantities In this district got in 'touch with The
Herald in regard to a considerable supply of printed matter needed. He was accustomed to the product of the
large city shops, but was willing to give The Herald a
trial provided Hie <|iiiillt) of the finished product could bo
matched. It was a case of quality first. In the matter
of cost it was found that The Herald price was no more
that that of the city sjiops — in some cases It was proved
by quotations from both to be less.
Quality tells its own story,does its own advertising, and comes back multiplied. A dozen or more subsequent orders tell how The Herald stood til. test. This
customer's account has run up well over three figures
since that time —
This Ib only one case; others could be/cited telling
the same story. "If it's worth printing it's worth printing well." Poorly printed matter is not worth any price,
but satisfaction is well worth paying for.

A Successful Woman Farmer in B.^iJi Columbia
(1) Lillooet country, showing Mrs.   Foster's  ranch   in
foreground.        (2) Mrs. Foster, of Lillooet, B.C.
At Lillooet, about thirty miles
west of Ashcroft und north of Lyt-
Iiiii, right In the middle of the dry
belt in British Columbia where irrigation is thc mafic wand that turns
tho desert Into a fertile garden,
there is a little 32-acre farm owned
iiiiil solely managed bv a woman.
il catches the eye by its appearance of orderly prouperity, its shady
orchard, well-hoed gardens, the
sleekness of the milk-cows grazing
In the higher paddocks and thc vivid
f'reen of its alfalfa fields stands out
n strong relief against the vast
brown barren slopes of the surrounding country, sun-baked, covered with
Isaee-brush and little else.
.Weary as she is with a life-time's
work of fifty-three years, behind her,
Mrs. Foster still carries on — as
faithfully and as thoroughly u she
did twenty years ago. With the
)*i''P of an Indian who comes in to
do the ploughing and give a hand
with the haying and harvesting, she
and .1 niece, wbo sometimes stays
with her, manage thc whole work of
thc farm alone.
Mrs. Foster gets more out of her
acreage than any other farmer in
the province. Every Inch of ground
Is turned to account on a methodical
and scientific system; the vegetable
and animal growth are made to react to each other's mutual benefit
and both to the good of their owner
and the country.
Her five milk-cows pasture on the
Farm and she sells all nev dairy pro
duce to an hotel; besides these thert
are a coup]* of work-horses, pigs
and chickens. Every scrap of feed
used for the stock is produced on
the ranch itself.
Mrs. Foster has worked down to
a fine point just exactly how much
space it is necessary to devote to
alfalfa, grain and hay in order to
do this and nothing is bought in the
way of feed except perhaps clamshell for the chickens. The crop and
the animals balance each other and
no overweight is allowed on either
This farmer is also a first class
gardener, both ln theory and in practice, and haB sweet corn earlier and
over a longer period than anyone
else In British Columbia. She devotes about a quarter of an acre of
well adapted land to her early spring
garden and another piece with a
colder aspect to her late summer
planting; so by a caxefully planned
system of sowing in succession she
has a plentiful supply of fresh vegetables to sell to the hotels and also
to ship to other points.
Lillooet is never troubled by late
frosts so her tomatoes are early and
these she sells by the bucketful and
laBt year shipped 100 boxes to the
coast. The orchard contains every
sort of tree-fruit, Including Italian
J>runes, peaches and apricots.of which
atter Mrs. Foster has two big trees
(now in bearing) grown from seed
sown since she came to the place
nine years ago.   Last year she ship-
ped away 700 boxes of fall and win-;
ter apples. >
There are some healthy looking,
hedges of grape vines which bear!
profuscdly and plenty of raspberries
and other small fruits, but her
speciality is melons for which she
is famous. There are rows and rows
of these, canteloupes, musk and
water melons for all of which she
finds a ready market. Her four beehives are partly the reason why her
fruit is so successful.      (
And bo we take off our hats to
this woman who is "carrying on" so
wisely and so well to our country*!

Slgnwrltera, apparently, bnust be
horn to the art, rather than made uv-
r tu it. One comes tu the conclusion ihat this must be true iu thc bus-,
iness of making signs as it is in oth-1
lines of effort, from looking at
tbe work of J. G- L-eadhetttr, whose!
handiwork is now becoming apparent!
on every side in the business section |
of the city, "George," as he is familiarly known to his friends, is no
stranger lo these parts, a good many
of the older signs ln the city being
Iiis work of some fifteen or sixteen
years ago. He came to this city
the last time in June of this year
with a commission to treat tlie windows of the government liquor store,
aud his work there is probably the
best example of Lhe signwriter's art
now extant in the city. He lias been
here ever since executing work of
all kinds, and Is still going strong,
though he expected his slay in the
first instance would only be of short
duration. ,
George has beun sign writing ever
since he was sixteen years of age,
and has been at It seriously us a livelihood for about twenty years. He
has worked lu ull the big shut's ol
the trade all over the continent, gelling new ideas and suggestion-* tor
ais uwn work. Kveu now the hig
tilgn establishments of the Now Hug-
land States have their latch strings
out for lilm, and he can nt any Linn,
go to work there at a premium over
the usual wages paid. He prefeis
the west, however, whiiih explains
why lie is In Cranhrook at the present time.
H Is apparent, that lu his time Mr.
Lcadbetter has hud some big un-di-r-
lakings on his hands, and from tin:
sheaf of testimonials he has had given liini in all parts, ho invariably leaves satisfaction behind him. Right
here In Cranbrook there arc those
who have not been backward about
expressing themselves as to his workmanship, and he has yet to encounter
a dissatisfied client.
It is nut only In sign wr I Mug propor that his reputation has been
mnde, however, but decorative work
generally. The decorations iir the
Palace ot Fine Arts at tho San Francisco Exposition a few years ago was
somo of Ills work, aud coming nearer home, the decorations in the interior of tho Empress Theatre, Lethbridge, Is more of his handiwork, besides other work of a similar nature
Among the business places ln tho
city which have heen brightened up
by the addition of now Lcadbetter
signs, or the renewal of existing ones
are the following: B. C. Govt. Liquor Store, Hanson Garage. Ratcllffe
& Stewart, Martin Bros., Delaney &

arj ptlraction. "Before ihe White
M'ji Came," Is tbe title of .al.j mot-'
ici. picture production.
Tlie special feature of this attraction is that Chief White Elk and the
Princess White Elk are travelling
with tho production and present a
magnificent prologue and epilogue
explaining each vital point of the authentic and interesting story as it Is
unfolded un tho screen.
Chief White Elk Is a graduate of
three universities and Is a master of
seven languages, He is Uie chief-
lain of his own tribe, the Cherokees,
and has appeared in public fur tlie
last fifteen years lecturing aud ent-l
attaining. He has a wonderfully silvery tenor voice uf remarkable range
and utilizes It in a selected program
of new and popular songs. He will
also offer a real Indian dance. Th*1
picture is a masterpiece ot acting
every part played by a full blooded
"Before tho White Man Came" portrays faithfully tlie life of "the red
man of not so long ago yhen he was
the undisputed mouarcb of the plains
Tho picture is taken frum one of
the annals of the tribe und describes
tho lovo of "Big Elk," chief of the
tribe for "Kaweena." "The Wolf,"
chief of au opposing tribe, is his rival aud the action of the photo play
proves that even In those days tbe
course of true love did not run
There will be a special matinee for
tho children. Tiie Chief will conduct an educational and entertaining
contest, and the children finding tin
nearest correct answers lo his questions pertaining to the life of the red-
man "Before the White Man Came,"
will be awarded nice prizes.

Statistics show that travelling on
s railway is nowadays less hazardous than walking on the street—
the percentage of fatalities steadily
decreasing in suite of an increasing
volume of traffic at higher speeds.
In congested areas tracks have
been doubled and quadrupled; steel
bridges and embankments replace
wooden structures; air brakes and
automatic couplers have superceded
hand brakes and links and pins;
steam heating and electric lighting
have relegated car stoves nnd odl
lamps to the scrap pile; steel construction throughout, underframes
and car bodies, steel tyred wheels
with continuous fastenings are
standard for all up to date passenger
equipment; air signalling devices replace thc old bell cord ond engine
cab gong; scores of other accessories,
too numerous to mention, are now
fmrt and parcel of all modern roll*
ng stock, all specially designed to
reach the desired goal—"Maximum
Protection to Life and Property."
The greatest and most costly improvements have undoubtedly been
carried out in connection with the
fiermanent way and signalling sys-
ems. Steel raits of constantly increasing weight have superceded
light irou ones; split switches have
banished the old stub switch; elaborate interlocking devices are installed at all points where railway*
cross at grade.
Everything tending to increased
efficiency and safe operation, regardless of cost, has been done to
an extent hardly appreciated by the
travelling public generally.
In this great general advancement
seemingly small matters have not
been overlooked, special attention
has been given to minor details conducive to the desired result —
In addition to the usual "flagging" by trainmen with hand lamp
and flag, the emergency signals
most commonly used are the fusee
and the track torpedo or fog-signal
aa it is generally called across the
emitting for a definite period red
and yellow light of great brilliancy.
is especially effective on dark ana
stormy nights, but not equally valuable in daylight and in foggy weather, and not as popular among prac-
tic;J railwayman as the Track Torpedo, which is mure easily carried,
promptly applied and meeting all
conditions by day as well as by
Up to the present time the track
torpedo appealer! tu one sense only,
namely, Hearing, und usually consisted of a pellet of a detonating
compound, exploding with a loud report when crushed by the wheel of
a locomotive or car passing over lt
—but not sensitive enough to be
exploded by light hand-cars or mc-
tiun-men's lorries.
A new type of torpedo called th*
"Meteor" has recently been adopted
by the Canadian Pacific Railway for
use on its System from Atlantic to
Pacific. The unreliable method of
attaching the torpedo to the rail
head by soft metal bands pressed
into position, but frequently displaced, has been greatly improved
by using a spring rail clip of tempered steel or spring brass—gripping
tha rail head firmly and promptly
applied. Furthermore, assurance
has been made trebly sure—the new
torpedo appeals to three senses instead of one, not only hearing, but
seeing and smelling. It not only produces a loud report on detonation*
but simultaneously a brilliant flash
and pungent smell.
The new torpedo is completely
waterproof—it will stand any atmospheric conditions of heat, moisture
und frust. It has been subjected to
one hundred hours immersion and
one hours in moist steam at 120 deg.
Kahrt. without deterioration and has
been used where the temperature
was many degrees below Zero with
complete success. Special tests bave
been carried out to ascertain its
holding power when placed in position on the rail, and for flying particles likely to cause injury to by*
standeri, with completely satialao-
ten result*.
Montreal.—Although the ban upon
the importation of, Canadian cattle inlo Great Britain has not yet been removed, the exportation of cattle from
the port of Montreal is showing   an |
activity that has not been seen for'
many years.   Since navigation opened j
this year there have been carried from I
this port 7.674 cattle and 1,884 sheep.)
