Of East Kootenay
New North Star Superintendent.
The Rossland Miner hns this to sny of
Mr, J. 1.. Parker, the new superintendent of the Nortli Star mine, who arrived
in Cranhrook last Monday :
Mr. J. I,. Paiker, M. IC, hns heen requested liy the representatives of Messrs.
MeKenzie and Mann to accept the
superintendence of the famous North
Stat mine, in East Kootenny, and
leaves for Kast Kooleiiay today.
The North Slar has over $i,oco,oco worth
of ore in sight, and is to Kast Kooteuay
what the Le Roi is to West Koolcnay.
The position is, therefore, one of great
respon nihil ity. and the owners are to be
congratulated on bavin-*, made so good a
selection. Mr. Parker is a mining engineer of twenty years' experience, and
hns probably seen as much of the mines
of this section of country aa anyone of
his profession residing in the province.
He has beeu a resident of Rossland for
the past four years, during which time
he has made many frieuds, and has
achieved a well-earned reputation in his
Pay Roll Gold Mining ind Milling Company.
Tbe Crst block of 100,000shares iu this
company has been sold outright by
Messrs, McViltie and Hutchison in a
week. This shows plainly the great confidence the public has in the future of
the mine. Wc hear that the crown patents will be applitd for at once and
active mining inaugurated ou the property so that trial shipments may be made
early iu the winter. The foreman of the
work will probably be sent over from
the Yuiir camp, where some of* thc directors of Pay Roll have already large
mining interests. A large block of this
company's stock will at once be offered
in Paris and Loudon, and tbe promotets
feel confident of bavin,-* »i ***»**» ♦•jn.nnn
in the treasury before soring, so that
-■inn operations can be carried on in a
thorough and comprehensive manner.
St. Marys Oold Mining and Milling Company.
The memorandum of association of
this company has been signed and the
application for charter forwarded to Vic
toria. The head office will be at Rossland, H. Ch but the company bas beeu
orgauized for the special purpose of
developing a group of claims on St.
Marys prairie known as tbe Carrie Lee
group. The group consists of three
claims showing sevetal well defined
ledges which give good assays In gold,
silver, copper and lead. On the Carrie
Lee claim considerable work bas beeu
done. A shaft some sixty feet in depth
follows one ofthe walls of the ledge and
in in good ore at the bottom. Tbe ore is
a high grade galena carrying gold and
silver. The principal ledge 011 tbe Hob-
sou assays $200 iu gold, which is carried
in telluride.. The region is rich in cop*
per-bearing ledges, and thorough development work on the Carrie Lee will
be of inestimable benefit to tbe adjoining claims as showing what is to be expected as depth is gained. The Sweepstake, which adjoins the Carrie Lee
group, shows many strong ledges, but no
woik has been done. The Annex, to the
north, has a remarkably strong showing
of copper ore, but not sufficient work has
been done to enable an opinion to he
formed of the direction of the ledge.
In the same neighborhood are the
Dlack Hills group and the James Laidlaw claims on which deep shafts are being sunk with very satisfactory results,
all leading to the inevitable conclusion
that the St. Marys prairie will be an important mining camp.
Celebrated Entertainer Coming.
Miss Mariella LaDell, It. ti. , an honor
graduate of Philadelphia School of Oratory, will give one of ber charming
entertainments in Cranbrook 011 the
evening of Wednesday, October 18. under the auspices of tiie Presbyterian
Ladles1 Aid. Miss LaDell, who is well
and favorably known throughout the
west, is returning east to Toronto and
bas beeu secured for an evening that
Cranbrook people may have the opportunity of listening to thia clever artiste.
The Victoria Colonist says of her recent
appearance there; "Miss LaDell cap*
lured the audience with her first selection, 'The Wind and the Moon,' aud
moved many to tears by her wonderful
Impersonation from 'Childhood of lhe
Dead Pussy Cat." 'The Chariot Race,'
from Ben Hur, was never better rendered
before a Victoria audience, while 'The
Stately Minuet' aud 'The Delsarteau
PosingB of Human Emotions' displayed
the talent of this beautifully graceful
artiste. The versatility of this practiced
entertainer was displayed In the sadly
tragic masterpiece of M O. Lewis, 'The
Captive,* and 'Sand)'a Courtship' Iu
imitation of childhood Miss LaDell
could hardly be excelled. A return date

One of the moat important deals iu
mining property in the St. Marys country w-is made a few days ago wheu
George Uiqnhart gave a bond on bis

A tangible proof of the prosperity of
Cranbrook lies in the fact that the townspeople bought all of the 100,000 shares
of Pay Roll with the exception of one
solitary thousand, which an enterprising
citizen of Fort Steele snapped up.

Twelve Feet of Ore.
Moyie Leader: The ledge in thc No.
t tunnel of the Lake Shore mine widened out to twelve feet this week, and the
ore la ns fine as a man ever laid eyes on.
Tbe Increased width of the ledge in the
lower tunnel clearly demonstrates that
this ledge is constantly gaining in width
Ith depth, Tbere is now plenty of ore
in all the workings, aud the Lake Shore
mine Is turning out to be a bonanza,
W. R. Jvffrey. consulting engineer for
the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate,
stopped off at Moyie the first of lhe I
week on his way east, and with Manager
Drewry thoroughly inspected lhe mine.
He was much elated over the looks of
the property and the maimer in which
tbe work had been done. Arrangements
have been made whereby Mr. Jeffrey
will inspect the property ouce each
month. Ore shipments will soon begin
and tbe first lot will probably leave
about Monday.

Last Friday evening was a gala night
for the Odd Fellows of Cranbrook.

Charles Cruine, two miners, were killed
by a blast rn tbe No. 1 tunnel of the
Lnke Shore mine Tuesday evening at
about 11 o'clock. Mills and Craiue bad
put in a round of holes aud were ready
to shoot, pieparatory lo going off shift.
It is supposed they had difficulty in
''spitting" one of. the fuse and that the
other shots went off before they had a
chance to get out ol the way. The bodies were found by ti. Wergin, a mucker,
who was going on shift. Tbey were

Visitors Are All Favorably Impressed With

' I see your town continues to grow,"
said Mr. Clements, of Nelson, who at
tended the I. O. O. F. banquet last
week. "When I was here last April I
said then you had tbe making of a good
town, and your growth since tbat time
demonstrates that I am right. I can remember when Rossland and Nelson hnd
ouly a few people, and tbat was just a
few years ago. Craubrook seems to
have the tight kind of people, and I
never hear ihem say a word against any
other town iu the district."

man who worked for' C. J. Eckstorm in
the Railroad Headquarters hotel. The

$4400 insurance. Among the hotela

THURSDAY.       ■      OCT. 5. 1899
]'. K  SIMI'SIIN, Bltttor n.l.l Manager.
Tlie llcrilU itoitres to give tlm no** ot tlie
district. H ymi know any nbout your town
y.i.ir lulu,' or y.mr people, senil It to this ottk-e.
Do you want
Good Job Work?
If you do come to The Herald
office. That is the kind we
do.   Try us and see.
Every man In town organized himself
into a Ure laddie, and splendid work was
done iu many Instances Wiih no water
supply and no fire-fighting appliances it
was a foregone conclusion hs to the re*
suit when the flames were fairly started
No human Ingenuity could save the fated
Mock. .Murk Tracy, with his water
wagon, did excellent service, continual*
ly refilling it at the river as fast hs the
bucket brigade emptied it.
The above is from the account of the
disastrous lire in Cascade, published iu
the Record, of that city. And if a fire
ever started in any of the buildings on
the main street of Cranbrook, The Herald would have to print a similar state-
in-, nt.
The present conditions in Cranhrook
leave the people absolutely helpleBS in
case of a fire. Nothing could be done
except lo stand and watch the property
burn. Unlike Cascade, there is a water
main on the main street with the water
flowing through il at a pressure strong
enough to thorw a stream over any
building on the street. Yet, it ts practically useless, ns there is no apparatm
with which a fire could be fought. The
non-action of the people in this mallei
Is serious, and may result in a conflagration that will prove disastrous in the extreme.
What is to he done ? Is there no mun
or set of men to take lhe initiative in
tliis work? Already there is a small
neuclus on which to work, and by proper
action being taken, the town could.
without u doubt, secure an appropriation
from lhe government of $15" to (350 for
lire purposes. Winter is coming, and
the danger fiom fire increases. Of
course those living in large and expensive buildings naturally exercise greater
care with fire, but there are those living
in small shacks, with little or nothing to
lose, who are^careless to au extent that
is almost criminal at times. Yet, a fire
originating in a shack, mny get a start
that would reach larger buildings and
destroy the lown.
The Herald would like to see something done. The people of Cruubrook
have too much ut stake to sit quietly
dowu and wait for results. They should
get a move on themselves, and the best
time to act is now.
Provide fire protection.
Tbe only store left in Brooklyn was
burned last week.
Sir Thomas Liptou has proven l.im

Tbe district of South Kast Kootenay

Cranhrook is all right. Her people
took up 100,000 shares of Pay Roll stock
in'a few days.
It takes a strong head to resist all the
flattery that is being hi aped upon Admiral Dewey these days.
The Herald is under obligations to
Editor Smyth, of Moyie, for an account
of lhe accident iu the Lake Shore mine.
The government oflices should be ut a
central point and on the railroad.
Everyone must admit that if they are
honest in their expression of opinion,
The Trail Creek News wants to know
if Trail is dead, and suggests that those
people who have nothing to do but talk
about burying it, had belter pack up
nnd leave the town.
The killing of two miners at Moyie
last Sunday hy a premature explosion
was most unfortunate. The miner takes
many chances with his life, besides
working hard lor tbe money he receives,
Thc people of Moyie, Wnrdner, Per*
nle, Kimberley, Marysville and Cranbrook sny that the government oflices
should he on the railroad, and what they
nil say wi.l pretty near go wben the
lime comes,
The Nelson Tribune says that licensed
gambling in a town is far better than
crooked games run on the sly, and adds:
"Une honest laboring man and his fain
ily is worth more to a town than a dozen
tiuhoi 11 gamblers and sure thing fakirs."
Fernie is going to ask for $1500 to be
expended iu uud around Fernie. That
is right, Fernie is entitled to some of
the government improvement funds, and
she'll get it with a change of government, Fernie voted for Col. Baker, and
the powers that be at Victoria experience
considerable difficulty in finding Fernie
on the map, And there are other towns
in the district iu the same position.
The Herald is satisfied to do all il can
for this district, regardless of the petty
Jealousy displayed by newspapers or
people In other towns. Tbe Herald believes in the district as a whole, ami is
laboring for Lhe district as a whole, and
Cranbrook in particular. This paper
bus neither the time or inclination to

-Sheldon   C.   Hteddard, in Country Gen
THERE is a (.-nmmnndment against
coveting, but none against borrowing, whieh i-s practically helping
oneself to -what one covets, and the fur
more serious evil of the two.
But so long us there'is no commandment, or even n civil law to the effect
thut "thou shall neither borrow nor
lend," it should be lhe maxim of every
household and aipnrt ofthe brt-cdingor
every boy iwid girl to respect the property of their neighbor, even if that
neighbor is "only n brother, or sister, n
mother, or 11 father."
There nre so many types of borrowers
nnd some of them are so charming that
It. is rather a (II flic lilt task to lay plnns
for their wholesale undoing. There is
the -,-iil. affectionate, lovable and kind-
hearted, who really regards it ns a good
joke thnt she hns kept a borrowed
article so long that the owner iu turn
borrows it of ber, nud there    is   tli"
beauty who borrows nnythtngshc looks
well in, regardless of the feelings of the
possibly plain owner; there is the
truly generous girl who borrows her
friend's 111 lisle and books, and is so cureless about her own stock that she never
thinks to return those that have been
loaned her. and the girl who Ims unquestionably a lot of common sense,
and who is actually the mainstay of the
family, wbo rejoices because ber
mother, sister nnd herself are all the
same si/e und can wear one another's
Asa rule, it is not so much the family,
who have grown accustomed to their
own bud habit, who feel the Inconvenience as tbe visitor, or ehiuiee
friend, who although she may possess
a sufficient fund of misplaced generosity to lend, cuiinot bring herself to borrow in return, nnd soon suffers from a
sadly depleted wardrobe, Aind even If
borrowed wearing iippnrel is returned,
iis freshness is gone niid Us Individuality too, for the owner tins gotten in th->
way of associating It wiih another person,
A very charming woman, who possessed n conscience nbout borrowing.
and who was compelled fo reside for
.Mime time wilh un otherwise delightful
fnrrtlly, whn were ono mnl nil ntltllctetl
to the borrowing habit, Ims written
mofrt feelingly of her exponlonee there
in, and uf the manner In which one pretty girl was reformed.
"1 really," tu quote her exact *.vord<j
"never saw such a houseful of inisl'ils
in my life, mother andidaughters ull
decked nut in one another's clothes, :t
portion of ettoh wardrobe having been
purchased for some one else. To bi
sure, these charming people (Were ready
in lend me i-v -ything they hnd, but
tinfortuntttely 1 mueh preferred wearing iny ow n clothes, which were almost
Invariably scattered ull over the home.
"if u daughter of the houso was in
my room when a caller waannnouineod,
or when lhe rilnnetMiour wits Imminent,
that daughter picked up lite Ilrst collar
or belt she could Iny her hands on nnd
donned ii ns rendlly as if it were her
own. lt did not Improve tho cnBe that
tin- borrower was quite willing for the
same liberties to be taken wlih her
own belongings, And 1 could not but
perceive Ihnt lhe lnrger purt of thi
family jars occurring in this amiabl
household were traceable to the borrowing habit. Yot they thought that
not to lend nnd borrow freely w
evidence of selfishness and a restriction
upon the privilege and right of relation
ship anil friendship.
"One day, however, I hnd the chance
nf get'tling in a good -word with Kute,
the elder -daughter, which eventually
cured her of the borrowing hubit. An
oxqtiiBlte gown had come home for her:
it hnd been spread nut upon tbe bod.
and the mother nnd family had boon
called in and allowed to look upon Its
beauties. Kate's sweetheart was coming next <lay, nnd this gown was to delight his eyes when she appeared before
him in it. While she was out walking
Die unexpected happened, and her lover
arrived a dny ahead of time. He wont
after hor, met her. and the two walked
home together, nnd, as H wns the din
nor liour, straight on Into the dining
room, expecting In make apologies to
the mother for lack of preparation. In
that dlnling-room whnt sight should
overwhelm Kate, but thai of Maud, her
younger sister, sitting nt the table,
arrayed in all trie glory of Iho new-
gown! Maud's beloved had come nnd
she, 1no, had coveted to appear in new
Mid wonderful apparel. 'You Be*, Kate,
she said apologetically, 'I didn't know
you were expecting Herbert.   I didn't
known! nil whal you had this gown for
—you didn't tell me, And 1 didn't
ihitik you would cure—I thought you
would be glad under the circumstances
for me to take It. Nobody told nii
Herbert wns here. Jack came, nnd I
Inidn'l a thought about anything else.
And everybody—you, too, Kate—has
worn my chillies until they ure pulled
all out ot snapc; innl I cume In licit in
look fnr something to wear, and you
were out, nnd I hnd In take the gown
without consulting ynu. I had no
ilonbi hut it -would be all right.'
'"I believe,' said Kate to me after
dinner, 'your way of not borrowing nor
lending is best—although, at times, I
have thought it wus 11 dreadfully selfish way.'
"Then I found time for the lesson,
'My dear,' said f, 'the spirit which is
back of tho freedom with which you
lend and borrow with each other, is so
luauMfiil that I hardly feel it is for me
to criticise tbis particular form of its
expression, yet indiscriminate borrowing seems to hip communism to ihe
point of lawlessness. A higher expression .would be in carefully respecting
iho rights and property of each other.
And in the point of convenience, it
would have many advantages over your
present custom. Whenever nny of you
wnnl to go nut, there is great confusion
here in matching your gowns with the
trimmings which belong with them;
much time iis Inst, nnd, ns you kmow
yourself, much composure of spirit
Your mother, for instance, who does
more lending nml less borrowing thnn
the rest of you, bus become quito discouraged in her nttempls to go out,
verily, as 1 beliovo, from the difficulties
which lie in the wny nf maiding 11 satis
factory toilet In the time at her command." •
" 'J hndn't thought of it in Hint wny,'
Kate replied, softly. '1 believe that I
see, with ynu lhat the less selfish way is
not to borrow, Hut I do not know how I
shall cense tn lend.'
, '"That will come of itself. If you
cease to borrow ynu will soon cense tn
lend. People who respect themselves
will nnt ask it; people who do not re
spect themselves, yon will llnd courage
to refuse. The question of private,per*
BOnnl   rights,   of  justice, should coiiie
before that of generosity.   There are
times when one shnulil lend, times when
nne should borrow, times when one
Bhould give; times, when in mir own
Interest and In the Interest of others,
one Should do none of these things.
Wo should neither give nor lend becnuse others think we Bhould, but only
lis our own will mnl wisdom direct."
Another Woman, who is an nuthority
on these tittle things In life which mute
people agreeable to nne another, said
recently to the writer: "I should always rather give my things thnn lend
them. 1 l*,ive ti friend who is a dear,
charming woman, but whose visits  I
dread. She carries away nrmftlls of

Every person who borrows freely
runs the risk of making himself or herself n nuisance to thc friends who love

runs the risk of having previous treasures abused by careless hands nnd
of entertaining Ul thoughts in consequence. Lend liberally, give liberally.
In response to acttinl noed and in accordance with your judgment and eon-

A Little Bit of Salt.
Every child ueeds a little bit of salt,
and lu almost every food It Is well to
put some, not only for tho taste, but
for its value in digesting the food. It
Is u notable fact that all animals welcome salt occasionally, and, like human beings, pine when there Is a lack
of it. lu Holland, some generations
ago, it Is said to have been the custom
to punish criminals by allowing no
food but bread without salt. The con-
sequence was the blood became depraved, they became Infested with
wo rum and died miserably. Blood
contains a large percentage of salt, uud

Cure of Ganoer.
Some t welve years
ago Mrs, Elizabeth
Oilhula, wife of tba
poalmaster of Bun-
ton, Ont., was taken
ill wlih an obscure
stomach trouble
which ber physU
cians pronounced
cancer of the stomach and Informed
her that her tease ol
lite would be short,
MRS. OILHULA. 0n the advice of
friends she commenced taking Burdock
Blood Bitters. The results that followed
wero little short of marvellous. Her
strength and vigor returned and in a short
time she was completely cured. Mrs,
Oilhula is to-day In the full enjoyment ol
good health, and In all these ye**,rs there has
not been the slightest return of llie trouble.
Here is the letter Mrs. Gilhula wrote at
the time of her cure:
" Abri.-t four years ago I was taken sick
with stomach trouble and consulted several
of the leading physicians here, all of whom
pronounced tne disease to be cancer of the
stomach of an incurable nature, and told
mo that it was hardly to be expected that
I could live long. Afterward the two doctors
who were attending me gave me up to die.
" By the advice of some of my friendi,
who knew of the virtues of Burdock Blood
Bitters, I was Induced to try It, and I am
now happy to say that after using part ol
the first bottle I felt so much better I was
able to get up. I am thankful to state that
I am completely cured ofthe disease by tha
use of B.B.B., although it had baffled the
doctors for a long time. I am firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved
my life."
Here it the letter received f ram her a short
time ago,
" I am still in good health. 'I thank
Burdock Blood Bitlem for saving my life
twelve years ago, and highly recommend
it to other sufferers from atnnmch troubles
of any klud."        Emzabkth Oilhula.
