CROWS NEST PASS LUMBER CO. SOLD
One Of The Largest Lumber Deals Ever Put
Through in British Columbia
TllO sab- ol tho Crows Nest Puss
Lumber company, located at Wnrd-
nor, utter pending (or something lii*.*-
a vi'iir or moro, was consummated
last week, il being understood that
tlto prion |iaid was $1,200,000, I'.
l.iimi, who has liri-ii thr manager ol
tlw company since its inception, made
tha following statement, to a representative ol tlir ] In uld regarding
tho snlo:
"All tho shares of the (.'rows Nest.
Puss Lumber Company, Limited, formerly owned by myself, John Brock-
curldgc and associates boro, have
been sold to E. Golden Filer nml associates, of Manistee, Mich., together
witli about forty thousand acres of
timber lauds in the Kootenay valley, lormerly owned privately by myself and Mr. John Brcckenridge. Tho
eompanv will continue business under
tlic old name and style. In ordei
to take care of the concern undei
the new arrangements, under the
deal mentioned, the capital stock of
the eompanv will be increased Irom
$250,000 to ?2,«00,000. There will
be practically no change in tbe
management for the present, or tbo
present staff. I have consented lo
look nfter tbe business, as usual, for
the present."
This is one of the largest lumber
deals tbat bas taken place in British
Columbia, and the success of the
eompanv, and the success of the sale
is -due to the keen business judgment
of Mr. Lund, and his determination
to win out on any proposition be
might take up. The readers of thu
Herald will be pleased tn learn that
PETER MIND.
Mr. Lund does not contemplate leaving British Columbia or Kast Kootenay. On tbe contrary it is nuile
possible that Mr. Lund will move to
Cranbrook in time and make this

MINERS STILL OUT
In   (he  liiinhi'i   bUSlnoSfl    lie  owns ou
lhe prairie and large land Interests
heie in East Kootenay. Mr. Lund
went from Washington to Nelson, 11.
c, ilu- year  Itetaro the construction
of tbe Clow, where lie met John
U reckon ridge, nml formed a partnership with liim to lute, up the con-
tiai't of putting iu thfl system of
water works at Nelson. Afterwards
thev look contracts fur railway work
mi the Crow and they built the North
Shu branch. After building tbis
branch, Mr. Lund turned over the
railway work to Mr. Breckcuridgu
and began to acquire property for the
purpose of engaging in tlie lumber
business at Wardner, H. C. This
was about six years ago, and during
that time there has been built up
at Wardner one of the largest ami
most successful lumber plants in
British' Columbia. Mr. Lund has
given his personal supervision to tbe
work and has gathered about him an
able and trustworthy staff of lieutenants, including G. G. Jones, chief
accountant; A. Shcppard, assistant;
K. W. Burgess, paymaster; H. C.
Lindsay, saw mill superintendent;
Otto Wisner, superintendent planing
nnd finishing department; II. llelgeson. superintendent shipping department; I). Brcckenridge, superintendent
lojreintr department; Thomas Oaff-
nev. storekeeper, and B. Mnrkell, assistant storekeeper. Mr. Lund has
always been free with his praise for
good work performed hy his men, as
he is/a firm believer iii eiving credit
for what success the eompanv has
attained     to the men who did    tho
j work.
!   The sale of Ibis company hy    Mr.
.Lund, means tho making of a comfortable     fortune for a number,   of
) people who were interested in the
comnanv and wbo will profit largely
bv the deal.     Naturally    Mr.   Lund
| makes a good   1 liincr out of it,    and
I be lias     worked    night   and day to
ininke n success of the business. Mr.
Lund was born in Sweden, near
Christians lad, and move*! with    his
parents to North Dakota when seven
years of nue. lie lived on a homestead in the    Tied    River Valley for
lien years, near Fargo, and then left
home and went to Montana. Mis
Whole life, since coming from the Old
Countrv. has    lieen spent in Dakota.
I Montana. Idaho, Washington and
British Columbia, and be was    never
least of tho Bed River until three
vents tivo. The partnership heretofore existing between Mr. Lund and
Mr. Brcckenridge is now in course of
dissolution, but Mr. Brcckenridge will
continue the railway work.
|   The niirchase made bv tbe Michigan
i people, it is understood, amounts to
$1,300,000 paid out in cash, and the
comnanv   will have a similar amount
[available for working eanital. The
constriction of additional mills and a
ll; rv --''stem of logging railways  are
I now being planned and will he undertaken as     soon as the conditions
ijustify tbem.

SOME IMPORTANT BY-LAWS
Corporation of the City of Cranbrook
BY-LAW NO. 61
A By-Law to Grant Certain Privileges to the
Kootenay Telephone Lines, Ltd.
A bylaw to grant certain privileges to tbe Kootenay Telepboue
Lines, Ltd., wus before tbe City
i ituiicil lasi evening und will be sub-
mi lied lu tbe electors ou tbe _8tb
day of April. Tlie Cranbrook Electric Liglit company obtained tbese
privileges by a popular vote ol the
people last year but for various roa-
ons il bus heeu found necessary   tu
pcrate   the telepboue system sopar-
iciy uud distinct from tbe Electric
1.i(i,liL company. Tbe purpose ol tbis
nwuw, therefore, is simply to transfer tbe rights already given to the
l ranhrook Electric Liglit company
io the Kootenay Telephone Lines,
l.ld. The Cranbrook Electric Light
compauv has given an undertaking
that in the event ol tbis bylaw receiving the consent of the electors,
they will ut once relinquish all
rights given tbem as a telephone
company, under bylaw No. 'i'i.
ll was proposed ut Iusl' night's
meeting of the council to place a
Mo,uni) debenture bylaw belore the
electors ut as early u date us possible.
Tbe purpose for which tbis money is
h> be raised ia for street improvements, lt was felt that certain
streets, more especially Baker
street', required clearing and grading
and that us the cost of tbu same, it
Uii.eii out of the current year's income, would be an unjust burden upun lbe taxpayers and us the benefit
derived thereby would be a lasting
oue, it was felt tbat the repayment
if tbis expenditure should be spread
i>ver a term of years. If the
amount of $10,000 had to be raised
by direct taxation       this
year it would involve
an increase in thc taxes ot at least
15 mills, whereas bv the method
i reposed the council have been able
to reduce the rate of taxation this
year to 18* mills. The amount required to repay these proposed dehentures will only involve an addition of one mill per annum.

THE COMPANY   AND MEN BOTH
WIN OUT.
Winnipeg, Man., April 7.—The questions at issue between tbe C.P.U.
und the Federated Mechanical unions
ui the company, which bave been a
subject of conference, bave been amicably settled; the friction which has
existed between the company and the
men ever since Mie settlement of the
trouble last fall bas been almost entirely removed. This ia tbe feature
whicli is tbe most satisfactory to thc
company, while the ollicial recognition of the unions is naturally most
gratifying to the men.
The'unions have secured practically
everything of importance affecting
lhe western lines wbicb tbey desired
and tbe schedule and working agreement eminently satisfactory to
them will be the result. Tbe matter
of prime importance to the other
men especially is their reinstatement to the pension roll trom which
they were removed after tlie strike.
This bus been conceded bv ttie com-
.y. It has also becn agreed that
a Dumber of mechanics who struck
last summer on the western lines and
who have not vet been taken back,
shall at once be re-engaged if they
desire. As a result of conference
aud tbe conciliatory .spirit in which
both sides approached tbe consideration of questions, both the company
und the men understand each other
hei ter than before and It is expected
thai a long period of harmonious relation bas been inaugurated.
The schedules and agreements have
not yet been signed actually, but
there is no doubt tbey wilt hu immediately upon ihe return ot O. Hall,
superintendent ol motive power fur
ihe company, from tbe west.      Only
imperatively minor matters of detail remain to be settled.
The company lias been successful in
its contention for separate and dis-
tlnct schedule tor the eastern and
western lines, but the actual compos. j
Itfon of the schedule committee to '
conduct the eastern negotiations has
not yet been definitely settled. The
western lines desire' representation
thereon, but it is not likely that this
will be agreed to. A joint committee to meet in Winnipeg and Montreal, however, is by no means an
impossibility.
The western unions have secured the
closed shop and integrity to their organizations,   which     was   somewhat
impaired bv the result ot the strike.

GREENWOOD-PHOENIX TRAMWAY BORE
(From the Greenwood Miner.)      I
The ratepayers of the eity of
Greenwood bave given their sanction
to tin- bylaw tu grant a bonus of
>.'iii nun for tbo construction ot tbe
Greenwood - Phoenix underground
tramway, and have thereby demonstrated their faith in ihe success of
the hip bore, which will be const nieti-ii by a syndicate of Chicago
anil New York capitalists. j
Tbe proposed Greenwood-Phoenix
tramwav bore without n question, is
feasible, is practical, ami is the inost
nearlv demonstrated beforehand of
an1' of the big mining lunnels of
America. It will, without a doubt,
show ureal results with a reasonable
exncndlturc of money, and promises
quicker returns tban any similar enterprise which has -*et been undertaken in tbe west.
The unanimous support nt the
bonus bylaw by (be people of Greenwood carries with it much stronger
evidence of their faith in tho project
thnn tho mere matter of tbo monev
voted,   which in     itself   in no small
amount, for the failure of the enterprise would work irreparable injury
tu tlie future prospects of the camp.
Must ol the men who voted on
the question are Interested in mines,
ami all are thoroughly conversant
Willi mines and mining properties.
The people of Greenwood are therefore eminent I v capable of judging
whether the bore will bo a success or
not, and their emphatic endorsa-tion
of the proposition Is a guarantee
that the project is thoroughly sound
and practical.
All who arc familiar with the camp
of Greenwood know that the high
grade licit whicli tho bore will explore, is one of tbe most highly mineralized zones known, ami that it embraces a stretch of territory five
miles long and two miles wide, ex-
i ending from beyond the Providence
tn beyond the Skvlark and trom
Hie Strathmorc to the Orescent.
Starting on the last named claim
vvlilcli umdiiccd 211 Ions of nre
which rave SSfl.flOO or $137 to the
Ion, the bore will cut through eighteen known veins which run north
and south and are uarallel, ami
avermre from ttlKI to Wo feet apart,
ami hnvlbg   lhe     values evenly db'tii
lulled, as proven by the Providence,
which produced 4,000 tons of ore iriv-
iug returns of $lin,noo; the Elk-
horn Jluii.Oiin of *03 ore, while the
Skvlark produced     1,1110 tons worth
1 about $110,1100; und tbe Last
Chance, half way between, which has
a high-grade streak nf X to 12 Inches
with values of $100 a ton, and which
lias also produced 1,000 tons trom
one hlg vein of low-grade ore 10 to
20 feet wide, that went $8 to thc
ton ami would concentrate at least
li to 1.
The bore will develop a compact
block of 000 acres crossed hy eighteen proven veins which have' been
opened up to depths ranging from
too to f.on feet,
Nn doubt many blind leads which
do mil appear upon the surface will
be disclosed. This Is tbe history ot
other tunnels, which have struck
blind veins earning fine ore.
No otber enmp has so many rich
surface showings in -ustify such an
undertaking, for Ihis great treasure-
house of a mountain has produced
close to $1,000,000 in ore lhat averaged over $!io n- ton, with the values
evenlv distributed, and an entire ah-
1 si-nee of pocket deposits.
This big bore or tunnel proposition
has been the dream of every pros-
' pectin and of every old-time mining
mau iu tbis country who has ever
seen the ground; but not until the
last eighteen months bas it been possible to get thc different property-
owners to join in a consolidation. It
took a panic to do lt.
; The reason why this camp has been
held back is not because there wasn't
ore; not that there wasn't rich ore
and lots of it; but because there were
a number of small properties being
worked separately at heavy cost. It
cost $15.00 a ton tn mine bv little
shafts witb crude appliances and
$12.50 for treatment charges, so that
while with six to twelve inches of
tbis ore running $100, and twelve to
eighteen inches more running $10 to
$12, each of these little properties
would pay good profits for three or
four tn own and work themselves,
yet they would not pay the expensive
management nf a stock company and
also dividends nn a hlg capitalization,
hence the advantage ot a consollda- j
tion of a dozen of them.
The consolidation will do away
with twelve different managements,
twelve   different   plants lor hoisting,
pumping, and drilling, in short it will
reduce the cost of management 85 per
cent, which iu the aggregate is enormous.
This will reduce the cost of mining
Irom $15 a ton to $10 on the high-
grade ore and will reduce tbe cost of
mining tbe low-grade ore from $4 to
$1.50.
This saving along is more than tbe
total values or tbe ore in many so-
called high-grade camps.
Aud with a large tonnage, smelter
charges will he reduced from $12.50
to $8 a ton and will be eventually
lowered to Sfi.fiO a ton, as wc believe
it is the intention of the company to
build a smelter to treat their own
ores, and to that end they will build
a concentrator to concentrate the
low-grade ore, which can be concentrated at a cost of 75c. a ton and
will produce $10 io $50 concentrates.
As (he bore will cut two big low-!
grade veins from ten to twenty feet
wide within the first five thousand
feet, and as tbis orr averages $8 a
ton, which Is proven bv shipments of
upwards nf one thousand tn"" therefore, the enmnnny will he assured ot
a tnimnire that will keep a concentrator going, und make a lead sim-1- j
ter in this city a certainty.
The syndicate who have taken hold
of this enterprise have entered into
it. in a cautious, businesslike and
systematic way. aud have the advice
of the hest engineers they could get
who thoroughly examined the project,
and who have heen engaged on the
proposition for the past eighteen
months.
Moreover, they sent their engineers to examine such tunnels as the
Nowhouso, the Sutro, the Two
Hrotbcrs,      Bore,    Virginia   Camp,
the province of llritish Columbia,
aud also took the tlrst prize ut
Spokane against all the Western
Stales for the linest high-grade gold
aud silver ores, this high-grade lead
will be cut within HOI) feet of the
portal of tbe boro.
The Defiance, which adjoins tbe
Strathmorc, in the early days shipped $525 ore, which will be reached
in 1,500 feet.
From there on the bore will crosscut a vein every three or four bund-
ret)    feet     at an   average depth uf

5   OBSERVATIONS *
*        BY TIIK OLD MAN. *
Thc mines of Canada paid in dividends last year eighteen million dollars, which is nearly tbree limes as
much as all Uic banks in Canada
paid.
Minister Pugsley seems lu be up
against the real thing this lime. If
be has been dishuiiesl in Ins dealings
with the public he should be ilred
from the ministry bodily, but on tlie
other hand if he is Innocent, lie
should be  vindicated.

Kngland wants mon to man her ships

have any further I ban Ireland to go
lo get the very hest.
Something should be done lo protect the bush in the immediate vicinity of thc city from forest lires.
Last summer the town hud a close
eall on August the 1st, the day on
which Fernie was burned down.
Everyone owning property adjacent
to the city should clear out the underbrush so tliat flic cannot tun, and
the townsite company should plough
the roads on the south and east
limits of the townsite so as to form
a fire guard.
The death of Marian Crawford at
Sorrento, Italv, lasi Friday is a
distinct loss to the readers of the
better class of novels. Mr. Crawford was an American, but knew his
Italv probably better than many
an Italian. Mr. Crawford's Italian
stories bave delighted lliousands of
Knglish sneaking readers and his art
will he undoubtedly missed.
Stephen fllrard said; "If I knew
T were to die tomorrow, nevertheless I would plant a tree today."
This is true, public spirit and should
he carried out. in the upritig work. A
good tree is a     Joy lo many genera
tions aud    the planting of one    does
away with selfishness.

i'he reduction ol the duty on lumber by the United Stales Congress to
one dollar will nol be had for British Culumbia lumbermen.
Baseball and lacrosse arc now ou

Why should uol every property

Sav brother, what have you done

Castro seems to be cast out.
Ex-President Itoosevelt's press
agent is evidently working overtime
these days.
The Herald has no time or inclination to indulge in petty personalities these days, any more than it has
bad in all of the years of its existence. The Herald believes in Craubrook and the people of Cranbrook,
in Kast Kootenay, and is doing all it
ean in its humble way to advance
the interests of all concerned. We
have here one of the best districts on
earth, aud life is too short for petty
tilings. Let us all get together anil
work for big things.
This is Cranbrook's growing time.
Tbe Herald is growing in popularity with the people. This fact is
evidenced by the circulation.
If you want to know what vou gel
for vour money advertise in the lleruld. There is no pig in the poke
business about the circulation of the
Herald. Vou nre entitled to know
if vou are paying us money for advertising, and we are perfectly willing that you should know. There
are very few papers thnt take that
stand with their ndvertiscrs.
bui the doctor is a man of mature
years aud wide experience among
men. He has becn iu business
traveling on the road for some time,
and as he said on Suuday afternoon,
knows that it is quite possible
lo sell goods and be a Christian,
lu tlu-so modern and competitive days
many arc inclined to doubt this
(alcineiil, but the message ot last
Sunday afternoon would make many,
men reconsider that question. The
afternoon meetings are lieing lield in
the Presbyterian church on Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons at U.Stl, Arrangements are
being made to have a children's ser-
ice and (his will probably be an-
ouiici-d on Sunday. Thc news from
Uicr points along the revival liue
re most encouraging, and it would
seem as though this movement will
go far to uplift thc social life of thc
Kootenays, and give il a clearer and
healthier lone. It will be accepted
by all thinkers that no progress can
of any service to a community unless it lias a moral basis, aud particularly ihis is true of a young aud
growing country like our own. The
bust advertisement that can be offered for the district is that it has
i respect fur all that is true and
good, and that those who come tu
live here will find an environment
worthy of high ideals aud noble purpose. The meetings are continuing
■-.cry night in the week except Saturday. Those wlm have not yet
beard the doctor would do well to
avail themselves of the opportune
and (he choir, lo say nothing of Mr.
Keynolds' singing, is a treat which
none should miss. It will be a long
lime before Cranbrook will hear a
better choir than that which is now
to be heard in the Auditorium.
THE REVIVAL CAMPAIGN
(By Publicity Committee.)
The large attendances at the Auditorium all through the past week
show that the interest in the revival
meetings is fully sustained and ou
Sunday evening lasi probably the
largest crowd that ever managed to
get inside the building assembled to
hear Dr. Toy ami his able song director, .1. W. Keynolds. The choir
was at ils best and rendered some
line selections, Mr. Keynolds also
sang with great acceptance. In tbe
afternoon thc Evangelist addressed
bei ween four and five hundred men
on the subject: "God is Not Mocked,
Whatsoever a Man Soweth That
Shall He Also Heap." His message
was listened to with close attention,
and several came forward at thc
close signifying their desire to become Christians and to lead a better
life. Mr. .1. Thompson was in town
on Saturday and Sunday to assist in
the work. He is from Rhode Island
ami is one of thc large party of tlie
Evangelists working under the direction of Dr. Chapman. Mr.
Thompson gave an interesting talk on
Saturday night to a large audience.
Thi! testimony of such men as Dr.
Toy and Mr. Thompson, who make no
secret of tho fact that tliey are well
acipiainted with thc ways of sin and
wickedness, has a greater weight
with men and women than any theoretical preaching. No man with any
intelligence could fail to recognize the
force or Dr. Toy's argument when he
declares that the gospel which he
now oilers lo men and women saved
bim from a life of sin and despair.
One might tte forgiven if they doubled the   words of a young enthusiast,
CHOSEN FRIENDS.
Craubrook Council 580, of thc Canadian Order of Chosen Friends, was

benelit society, with headquarters at
Hamilton, Ont. It is making great
progress in British Columbia, several
councils having been organized and
are daily gaining in strength. Thc
enthusiasm expressed by the loeal
council gives evidence they are determined tu make Cranbrook council
second lo none in this part of British Columbia.

THE  HILL  MOVES
W. D. Hill, manager of Hill & Co., is going to the
coast to live permanently. It is the doctor's, orders and
Mr. Hill says it is better to be a live man at the coast than
a dead man in Cranbrook.
1st MOVE.—Sale of entire Furniture Stock to F in
Mercantile Company.
2nd MOVE,—Moving Ladies Goods to furniture store.
3rd  MOVE.—Reducing the  Stock to a selling basis.
4th MOVE.—Mr. Hill's departure for the coast in
30 days.
These moves mean a big move in prices—a move
downwards—and what a move it will be. In fact the stock
must be reduced in the next thirty days, and Mr, Hill says,
no matter what reduction in prices is necessary he will sell
the goods before he leaves Cranbrook. It is going to be the
golden opportunity for the people of this district. The sale
includes everything in the store, in both ladies' and men's
departments.

read from (lenernl Superintendent
Price, ol tho c.P.R., stating that
this city would he provided with Im
proved train accommodation after
June (ith. A through daily: train
service between Medicine Hat and
Cranbrook will be established. It is
nlso likely that thc service between
here and Calgary will Im* improved
though there is no likelihood of tbe
earl- morning train west to Macleod
to connect wilh the Calgary train.
CRANHROOK  LAW STUDENTS
TO THE FRONT.
E. J. Avison, who has been in W.
P. Curd's law ollice here (or some
time, returned from Victoria last
Saturday, where he was called to
the bar of British Columbia. Mr.
Avison was a qualified lawyer in
England before coming here and after
putting in thc time necessary to
qualify came out second on the list
iu the examination. Mr. Clarence
Darling, who was nlso a law student
under Mr. Curd until about a vear
ago, when he went to Vancouver and
entered the office of Macneil & Bird.
After a trip to Europe Mr. Darling
proposes to enter practice in Vancouver.
FOR A NEW ROAD TO WARDNER
A       GOOD      PROJECT       WHICH
SHOULD HAVE THE BACKING OK THE PEOPLE.
To shorten the driving distance bc-
UvtH'ii this city anil the town ol
Martinet' by Irom eight to ten miles
Is a project which should commend
itself to every member ol the community. A petition is in circulation u'skiiiK the government to do
this work. It must be understood
I hn I this road Is more than halt
built. The rond (rom Oranbrook to
south side ol Maker mountain in the
beyond F. II. Morris' ranch, on thc
vallev nl Joseph's Creek, Is built and
I a considerable portion from the Wardncr end    bas also been constructed.
All that is needed, therefore, is    to
join the two, a matter ol about live
miles ot road    building.    It is csli-
I mated that if this is done the drlv-
. ing distance to Wardner will be clgh-
! teen miles instead ot twenty-eight as
at present.       This road would open
. up a very    valuable country,   as it
I runs through some of   tho finest bottom and bench land in the district.
I It may be said  that the portion  ol
this road already constrtiete;! at   tlie
Wardner end has been declared a government road.     Another point which
must not    lie overlooked       is   the
faet   that If   this   road were   eon
structed the telephone line would be
materially   shortened, thus reducing
tint expense ol operation.    II Is understood     that     the   co-operation
of   the    (.'ranhrook   Hoard ol Trade
will be asked in this matter and   uo

Captain William Joughin, of the
Liverpool coasting steamship William
Rowland, lost bis life while trying to
save his vessel after she had been in
collision with a steam dredger. Thc
William Rowland was making tor
Liverpool with a cargo of gravel,
and as she was entering the Mersey
the dredger struck her amidships,
tearing a great hole in her side. Captain Joughin immediately ordered his
crew of ten men into the boat.
"Tlwre is just a chance of savins her
by running ber on tbe bank,"' lie
said, "and I am going to do it." The
bank was half a mile away. Captain Joughin mounted thc bridge and
turned the vessel toward the bank.
The men in tbe boat rowed after Iter
iu the hope of rescuing their captain
if she sank before reaching the bank,
hut as she steadily settled down he
ordered them to keep away. About
one hundred yards from the bank thc
stern of the steamship shot up into
the air, and she dived down bow
lirsl. The captain leaped from the
bridge, but he was pulled under by
the vortex and drowned.
Four persons were killed hy a mysterious explosion which occurred in a
cottage occupied by John Wheeldon,
bis wife, and their four children,
in the parish of Bolsover, near Chesterfield. Wheeldon was standing in
front of lbe fire, when a tremendous
explosion occurred, completely, wrecking tbe chimney from the fireplace to
the roof. The room was reduced to
matchwood, Wheeldon was found impaled by a piece of ironwork, which
bad gone through his neck. Two of
the children were killed instantly, thc
body of ime lieing riddled as it hy
small shot. The woman was in thc
same state. When rescued Irom the
debris she recovered a little and said
to her neighbors: "I saw curious
sparks rise up from thc fire; then
there was a crack." She died a few
hours after the explosion. It is
thought that when Wheeldon came
borne be hanked up the fire for thc
night, and that an unexploded cartridge which had been brought up
from the mine in the coal exploded.
\ Hull couple's wedding has iust
been postponed owing to the bride,
wlm is a typist, having obtained her
intended husband's employment. This
singular sequel was the result of an
arrangement between thc parties,
made at the bride's request, that she
might help in swelling thc household
Income for a few months. Site was
already iu employment, hut an advertisement offering a bigger salary
for a typist tempted her to write tor
the situation. She was successful
iu obtaining the appointment. A tew
ilavs later her fiance told her that
the wedding must be postponed because he bad lost his employment, lt
then transpired that she had obtained
his work at a reduced salary. Thc
bride was sorely perplexed, hut in the
circumstances, sbe could but accept
the Inevitable, and the preparations
for the wedding were countermanded.
The bride had cherished thc anticipation that sbe would have been able
to accompany her husband as he
would have been but for this contretemps, to and from work.
Tbe Richmond Board of Guardians
have just recovered in their workhouse a pauper who has been in the
habit of writing begging letters
from that: institution. There arrived
at the workhouse tor the man, whose
name is Slater, a letter which contained a postal order for £1 from a
gentleman at Stoke-on-Trent. When
interrogated Slater admitted that he
had written letters to people all over
tbe country asking for money, which
was forwarded to him In postal orders, lie always, he declared, addressed the letters trom "2, Grove
road," which is registered postal ad-
dress of 1 he workhouse. Slater
was called hefore the Board for an
explanation, and appeared before the
guardians attired In a heavy double-
breasted coat, with an eyeglass and a
silver-mounted   walking slick,      pre
senting a very distinguished appearance. The guardians decided to give
Die man the postal order, and with it
his marching orders. Slater was
accordingly told lbat he was now no
longer destitute, and must leave the
workhouse.
Au extraordinary incident occurred
at a Weslcyan chapel in the village ot
Peak Dale, near Buxton, rcceutly.
Tbe service had heen in progress
slightly over half an hour, and the
preacher had just finished liis address
lo thc children, when a bov dropped
insensible, and almost immediately
afterwards two more children dropped to tbo iloor. Adult members of
the congregation rushed lor water,
and the plaee was soon iu a stale of
commotion and strange excitement.
In all about ten children and a
young lady named lladlield were
prostrated, and considerable ditlicuL-
ly was experienced iu bunging ber
and several of the children back lo
consciousness. Many other members of thu congregation were seized
witb sickness, and were taken home.
The cause ol tbe sickness seems lo
have been the fumes from tbe turuuee
of the beating apparatus uud the absence of ventilation.
Following the example of other
notabilities, Miss Dorothy Hoptou, a
ward in Chancery, who recently contracted a sensationally romaulic
luarriage with Tom Jones, a Shropshire railway porter, lias decided lo

will sing two songs. Mrs. Jones
came from a well known Shropshire
family, and was heiress to a large
fortune. She married to prevent her
mother sending tier to a Brussels
convent. Mrs. Mrs. Hoplim has cut
oil all communication with her
daughter aud left the district, and
pending the settlement of ber affairs
Mrs. Jones has taken thu opportunity of aiding her husband to get
their living.
A painful impression has been
created in North Staffordshire hy a
sensational aft'air which occurred re
cently at Leigh. The funeral took
place in the parish churchyard ol Mr
James Blood, aged sixty-five. When
the mourners had left the churchyard
the sexton and one or two men who
were helping him to fill in the grave
were astounded when their task was
half finished to hear a mutlled rapping from below, apparently emanating from the coffin. As they listened in consternation the rapping was
repeated five or six times. Crying,
"Why, the man's alive," Kdward
Allcoek, the sexton, Hung down his
spade and ran as fast as be could for
a doctor, while the others present
began to throw out the soil with
feverish haste. A medical man
quickly arrived, accompanied by the
deceased man's two sons, and no
lime was tost in raising the coffin
from the grave and carrying it back
into the chnreh, where tbe undertaker unscrewed lhe lid, and the doctor
made an examination. The man
was dead, and there was no evidence
that the body had moved. The coffin was, accordingly screwed up
again, und once mote borne to tbe
grave for re-interment, a large crowd
of villagers being present. An astounding thing now occurred, for us
the grave wus being filled in a second
time a distinct tapping was again
beard. As the doctor was satisfied
that death bad really taken place
the collin was not raised again, nud
tlic grave was filled up.
An extraordinary case in which
seven brothers answered to the
same Christian name was mentioned
at Kingston county court recently,
when the application ol a William
Harris, tor his discharge from bankruptcy was suspended for five years,
Mr. Howell, official receiver, said,
amidst laughter, that the debtor was
known as "William Harris No. 1."
It appeared there were seven brothers, all of whom were named William, and who were deliberately distinguished by numbers. The debtor,
in answer to thc judge, said tbey
were all baptized William. The numbers were part of tbelr name.

DOCTOR SAID ONLY ZAM-BUK
:    COULD CURE HER ECZEMA.
' In vii-w ol tin- miim-rous cures
which Zam-Buk bas worked when alt
vim lias [ailed, tlit*iu is Utile wonder
that in tin- end the doctor attending
.Mis. .1. 1'. St. Denis, ol 305 TUdiop-
boii Street, Winnipeg, should itli hex
there was nothing but Zam-BoK i-onld
cure her. The result showed the tar-
Bcclng wisdom ol this prnrtiti[mor,
ami having been completely cured uy
Zam-Buk, Mrs. St. Denis given bur
experience lor the beneflt ol other
sufferers.
i Slu* say*-;: "Ecwrmi itartcd <"l one
side of my lace and noBO. \\ Urst
| my nose lelt sore, similar to wbat
one reels when having a bud cold.
il paid nn attention tn this, thinking
' it wmild pass away in a day <ir *»o,
but to my surprise It irol worst-. Tbe
nose tht'ii became swollen ami hard,
laud turned n purplish red, us well as
part ot the cheek on that side oi my
face. A s t in- disease devel .pod,
pimples and ulcers broke out, then
tbi' skin cracked In places and peeled
nil in flakes, leaving mv fare and noBo
raw and sme. Tbis condition re-
aetiil on my general health, and I
became verv ill. I could Ret no
sleep ut night liccauso ol tbe Irritation and tlie pain, and mv face wus
in such a shocking condition that for
two months 1 did nol no out of the
bouse. l applied remedies which
were supposed to be good fnr skin
diseases, but in vain. Mv doctor
also treated me, but without efiect,
until one dav he said tliat the only
thing whieh would now be likely to
cure mo was Zam-Buk.
"Acting on bis advice, I procured a
supply aud lound that even the first
few applications bad a soothing effect on the sores. 1 left off everything else in favor of this balm, and
applied it liberally every day to the
affected parts. In a remarkably
short time, con si der ins the obstinate
nature of my disease, we saw traces
of Improvement, which encouraged us
to persevere with ibe Zam-Buk
treatment. Zam-Buk reduced the
discoloration, then the hard swelling
begau to show traces nf leaving, the
sores seemed to he less angry, and
in about three weeks' time most of
the sores were healing nicely. To
cut a long story short., t continued
with the Zam-Buk treatment until
my face was cleared completely of all
traces of the troublesome and painful eczema."
1 Zam-Buk is a sure cure for cuts,
lacerations, burns, eczema, ringworm, poisoned wounds, festering
sores, bad leg, and all skin injuries
and diseases. It, is also a cure for
piles. Druggists and stores everywhere sell at 50c. a box, or post free
from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, on re-
cept of price. You are warned
against cheap and harmful imitations
sometimes represented as "just as
good."

LESS CLOTHES; MORE MORALS •
New York, March 20.—Lack ol
clothes makes lor morality, according
to the theory ot Arthur Gcorgo
Pomeroy Collcn, Bon ol the retired
Engl ish odlccr, Lieut. O-on. Sir Edwin Cotton, for tort* -ears a resident
of llritish Kast Africa.
I "If American women wore leas
clothes they wmild lie more modest,"
detllarcd the Knjrlishman todav.
i "The women of Africa wear ver»*
Utile raiment and they are the most
' moral women in the world.
"Clothes   make the savage woman
I shy and coquettish. I have noticed
that in the native garh, which consists ot  a strip ol   hark or    hit ot
1 woolen blanket,    they arc as uncon-
| scions ot their charms as children.
"A white shirtwaist and a skirt to
which   the    missionary    introduces
' them, seems to sow thc first seeds ot
vanity.     As soon as it is explained
1 to them that they aro   without suffi-
I clout covering, It has   the most   de-
| moralising effect upon them. They
become vain, flirtatious and conceited
* when   they    arc   Invested   with ap-
! parel.
I   "I   think   an    ornamental   purity
[ hrtgade, with an African woman as
missionary,   would   help   occidental
' morals and manners."
I BY A DREAMER
HOME.
A happy home is thc hrighest spot
on earth that the eye of God looks
down upon. Love and peace in his
home sends sunshine around the man
wherever ho goes; disorder and
trouble there is misery everywhere,
There arc tew worries ol lite which a
man cannot now and then shake off,
hut who can sliakc himself free from
the skeleton In thc closet, from the
worry of the household, a blister on
thc heart, A day will tell how
many a man carried that with him
without wincing down to thc grave.
When husband and wife are helpmate
to each other in the hest sense; when
order and love and goodness prevail
iti the house, then the man who
has a hard battle in life to Tight can i
leave his struggles behind him when
lie enters there. With all our faults
wo are the most home-loving ol
people and that is thc reason why
we are the greatest ol people. Whatever helps home life is a national
blessing; whatever hurts home life is
a national curse and the greatest
curse thai can touch these blessings
is what would tamper with thc peace
ami blessedness of our homes.
PAITHFI I. LABORERS.
There is one class ol laborers who
ue\ei strike and seldom complain.
They get up at live o'clock in thc
morning and never get hack to bed
until ten or eleven o'clock at night;
ihey work without cea8lng tlic whole
uf that time, and receive no other
emolument than food and the plainest kind ot clothing; they understand
something ot every branch of economy and labor, from finance to cook-
Ing; though harassed by a hundred
responsibilities, ttiough driven and
worried, though reproached and
looked down upon tbey never revolt,
and Ihey cannot, organize tor their
own protection. Not even Bick-
neBS releases 1 hem Irom their posts.
No sacrifice is deemed loo great tor
them lo make, and no incompetency
in any branch ol their work is excused. No essays, books or poems nre
written III tribute to their steadfastness. They die in Hie harness and
are supplanted ns quickly ns may lie.
Those are the housekeeping wives ot
the laboring men.
A   PLEA   KOR THE HOUSEWIFE.
II is extremely unpleasant for a
sensitive woman who, before marriage, hail been earning her own living, and had been accustomed to
spending her income as she pleased,
to ask a man fnr money to buy
everything she needs, such as cot-
Ion, needles, pins, etc., etc. It
seems to us no more than right that
a man should give his wife, tor her
own necessities, at least halt as
much money as he would a servant.
She keeps his house, provides tor thc
comfort of himself and children, not
for hire, but because she loves them,
and she cares lor her husband's Interests as no hired housekeeper
would, and is she not entitled to
pay for her services? Yet some men
would think it a hardship to pay a
wife M.OO per week—the amount he
would be obliged to pay a servant
girl. There is many a woman
anion": t he working classes who
would think herself hiehly favored It
she were surp of fitly cents per
Week ol lier husband's wages to spend
as she pleased. Tlie above bints are
tor lhe husbands wbo need them, and
written in consideration ot their
wives.
PRACTICAL YOUNG MEN.
Thc young man who is petted too
much at home la   seldom any good.
What is wanted nowadays is a practical man who can do something else
besides smoke cigarettes and twist a
cane. The tune to learn to work
and to learn business habits is m
one's youth. He wbo leads Die liic
ol a butterfly until be is twenty-five
or thirty years uf age, and then re-
cognizes the (act that he has
made au ape ol himself, lias precious
little to recommend him when he applies lot a job. Tins may he n
chestnut, but it (Its not a lew
young men iu every city in thc Dominion. The hoys ou the larm are
hotter oil il they only knew it,
than thousands nl the hoys who arc
at large, wandering hither aud thither, searching and looking tor "rich
bonanzas" to turn up. There is
not hini; like being practical, and
there is hut one way to he so. Acquire business habits 'and train vom-
self to do good, honest, hard work.
Don't wasle your lime learning to

much favor with lhe Little Canadians in the easl, who think that ail
western grisl should puss ihrougn
Lheir mill, forgetting ihat a prosperous wesl means a prosperous cast
also. There are also others who
sincerely doubt the availability ot
ihe route. But all these doubts
must be set al test by the splendid summary ot tlie reports of other
government experts, such as Dr. Robert Dell, the well known scientist,
and the result ut his uwn personal
experience, extending over a number
ol years, given by Mr. A. P. Low,
Director ol the Geological Survey ol
Canada,     in    his    interesting book,
The Cruise ol the Neptune," l.Uti.
He says: "There is no natural diiii-
culty iu the navigation ol lhe bay
and strait so far as depth ot waver, presence of obstructions and
width of channel are concerned, and
if situated in a more southern region
tbe route would be an ideal one for
the navigator.
Hudson Strait and Hudson Bay do
not freeze solid, but are so covered
with masses of floating ice as to be
practicable for at least seven
months in the year, The ice does
not begin lu melt until well into the
month of June, and is not sufficiently
melted for safe navigation with ordinary steamers until tbe middle ol
July. No Ice is formed in the
strait and bay sufficiently heavy to
obstruct ordinary navigation until
the latter part of November. The
period of sale navigation for ordinary
iron steamships through Hudson
Strait and across Hudson Bay to
thc port of Churchill may be taken
lo extend from the 20th ol July lo
Uic 1st ot November. This period
might be increased without much
risk by a week, in thc beginning ot
the season and by perhaps two
weeks .at the close." '
Admitting that the route by the
hav opens two months later than
that by Lake Superior, still hy reason ot the thousand miles ol distance
saved, and on account ol its being
on the ocean itself, on which all
freight carriers can come nml no, the
capacity ot the bay route is very
much greater than that by the lakes
aud canals. During nt least tour
months ot the year the strait and
bay cau lie safely navigated by all
such vessels as frequent, without undue risk, the Gulf ot St. Lawrence.
GOOD     ADVICE     TO     ENGLISH
TRAVELERS.
(Vancouver Saturday Sunset.)
In a column ot advice to English
business men who contemplate a trip
lo Canada in pursuit ot trade London
Canada, makes the following sensible
observations;
Englishmen arc among the best-liked and the most disliked of business
men that visit this country. The
latter achieve their unenviable success
by a studied disdain of nil things and
institutions Canadian, hy odious
comparisons with England, and by an
acKressive assertiveness ot their
"Civis Romanus sum." The man
who is liked out here, and regarded
ns a thorough good fellow—aird
rlehtly so—has a svmpnthctlo and
ititelllttent Interest in all Canadian
developments and in local achievements which are bronchi to his nolice. He naturally assimilates the
Canadian social and commercial atmosphere, and looks at men and
places through "Maple Leal" -Masses.
He ts universally liked, and gets on
with men Iw meets.
.uolber point ut some Importance
is this: Do not in an unguarded moment rub in the merits ot Toronto
lo your customer in Montreal or dilate on the charms at Victoria to \
i" your buyer in Vancouver. There
is ibe usual jealousy between one,
c.iy and another, and it is policy to]
sindy the tender susceptibilities of
yuur trader very carefully. You see
outburs-,s if this jealousy in the
dulv press six davs in every week.

LITTLE THINGS.
Little drops ol water poured into
ilte milk, give the milkman's dauj~.li-
Lers lovely gowns ot silk. Little
grains of sugar, mingled with the
sand, make the grocers assets swell
io beat the band. Little bowls ol
custard, bumble though they seem,
help enrich the fellow selling pure
ice cream. Little rucks and boulders, lilile chunks uf slate, make the
eoal man's fortune something fierce
nud great. Little ads. well written,
printed nice and neat, give lhe jovial merchants homes on Easy Street.
