Drlefonteltt, O. P. S.—Broad wood's
brigade advancing oo Bloemfoiitein unexpectedly found the Boeis in a strong
position in the Driefontein kopjes yesterday. Gen. Kelly-Keimy'rtdlvlslon arriving .severe lighting ensued. The j
Boers resisted stubbornly but were
driven from their central position, leaving a number of dead and forty prisoners. The British force is moving forward today. During tlie fighting, in
which live regiments took part, with artillery, the Boers, though forced from
their center position, clung tenaciously
to the other kopjes, shelling the British
freely with three guns and two Vickers-
Muxims. Tiie British cavalry began to
turn Ihe Boer position, but night fell before the movement was completed. The
Boers retired during lhe night.

Driefontein, March It.—All of yesterday was occupied in fighting. The
Boers maintained a stubborn rear guard
action along a running front of twelve

At Diiefouteiu, about eight miles
south of Abrahams Kraal, tbe Boers
were found posted in considerable
strength ou the ridges connecting several kopjes, where tbe bad mounted guns.
The action began at 8 a.m. with an ar-
tilleiy duel. Gen. French'*, cavalry and
Gen, Foi lei's brigade supported cur
guns. The Boer artillery was accurately
handled and the British cavalry louud a
task harder tlmn tbey had expected.
Gen. Broad wood moved six miles
Southward trying to find a means to get
round, but the Boers followed behind
rising ground and even tried to outlldiik
him.   Meanwhile the sixth division of
infantry, advancing on lhe Boer left
slowly forced ibe enemy in retire. Had

Development ul This District.
Tbe progress made iu mining in Soulh

but it hns brought lo tbe front another

Lasl season was the first that any great
amount of money had been expended
aside from three or lour well known
mines, and this money has brought lurih
results that convinces the most skeptical
thut South East Kootenay lias just entered upon an era of great prosperity.
The developments of the past year have
aroused greater interest and created confidence, which means thai capital will
conic more readily into tbe district I ban
ever before.
Take the mines around Moyie. Already arrangements are being made foi
exploring mauy oT Ibe promising pros

whatever the nature of the ledge, unless

A small force is at present engaged in

There is considerable activity in the

of $4000 and probably would necessitate

second yenr and next week will insu-

A casual glance over the past two years
will convince lliose who were here when
the town started, tint Craubtook haa
made progress lhat should satisfy even
the mosl exacting. One year ago lhe
people were confident that Cranbrook
bad passed the crucial stage, and would
advance steadily in the future. At that
time there was quite a pood deal of
building in every line, and there were
those who said, "When these buildings
ire completed that will end the building
in Cranbrook " lint it did not. On the
contrary thousands of dollars have been
invested in the town siuce tbat lime,
and for the past year there It • uot been
a month lhat there has not beeu several
buibbngi in course of construction. And
now, at the opening of a third year for
The Herald, and a third year for the
town, for this paper came with the pioneers, there is more building under
headway than nl any other lime in thc
town I history, and plans arc being prepared for fully as much more as is now
under contract.
The people ol Cranbrook have reason
to feel proud of her past, aud gloriously
happy over ber future. Nowhere iu the'
great and prosperous province of British
Columbia is there a lo»n that bas made
more rapid progress or one that has a
brighter future, and tbat is saying n
greet deal fot Cranbrook. Thioiightout
ihe district, and with all who are familiar with the conditions in South Kast
Kootenay, Cranbrook is now tbe recognised center, and the business of the
district is shaping itself on this basis
more aud more each month.
During the pact year tbere have been
several change** of importance that have
been of greet benefit to Cranbroek. One
of these is the building ofthe North Star
branch, which clinches the proposition
of making Cr.ir * • <.k the railroad center
ot South Hast Kuotenay, and gives to
this city tbe prestige that folluws such a
A year ago Cranbrook only received
three mails a week. Now the town has
a daily mail f.-oai both east and west,
and is the diitributing mail center for
lhe whole district.
A year SgO it was necessary for all
prospectors and mining men working in
the territory tributary to Cranbrook to
hire teams and drhe to Fort Steele In
record claims. This has been remedied
by giving a (sub-recrder to Cranbrook*
which ii a step tti the direction of centering all official work in this town.
As to the business in the town, that
has been steady aud most satisfactory lo
the merchants. The payroll of the railroad and tbe vast amount of business
coming naturally to this town as the
easiest point of general access in lhe district, has encouraged the merchants and
enabled them to 'carry larger ai.d l*lter
stocks than is lhe rule in towns of this
The population of the town has steadily increased, and today there is a permanent population of over 12-/1. And
to meet ihis increase there has been a
constant Increase in the uumlier of residences, until now Cranbrook has become
a great residential renicr as well ai a
thriving business point,
As to the growth of the town and the
work of The Herald, we will quote whal
we said just a year ago,   wheh fits now
, well as then :
Thus it can be seen Cranbrook has
made rapid and substantial strides
forward. JAI no time in its brief
ciireer ha* it faltered, but lo tbe surprise of its most emhu-ttastic supporter-* it has gone ahead throunh
out the entire winter, and now, at
tbe Opening of another year, it has
biighier prospects than ever before.
And during the past year, week
after week, The Herald has faithfully chronicled the events of the place
nnd lab-red for the advancement of
the lown and beat interest* of the
people, ll has endeavored to t*
fair and impartial at all l-uies. No
man has beeu permitted to use ita
columns for the Injury of his neigh-
l-or, and anything that savored of
peliy spite or meanness has never
been countenanced. The publishers
have felt lhat they had a respnnti-
blltty—Indeed they have never failed
to discharge lhat responsibility for
the good of all, according to their
besl judgment.
A Labor Meeting.
An Impromptu political meeting, consisting of representatives of various labor organizations was held at Odd Pel*
tows hall last Saturday night for the
purpose of general discussion. Barney
McOoulrick wnsin the chair and Thomas
Cavln officiated as secretary. Short addresses were made by several of those
present, the tenor of the remarks being
a dlscUS-don of fl plan for the labor element in the district to follow in securing
a representative convention prior to the
holding ol a provincial election.

Vou can't begin to know our Joy to ie*»
eaeh loving face,
To huve you children home agin around
the dear old place,
Some brlngln' children of your own—why
goodness, grtolotli me!
When 1 think that's our Mary's child,
»uems If tt couldn't be,
And yet 1 oner realise our Juurney'i nearly done,
For mother's almost sixty-nine and I'm
nigh seventy-one.
nut I guess lovtn' hearts'll change  P«-
cemlier** Into Junes,
So let's do as wu used to do, and sing the
Gospel tunes.
There, mother, don't that put you back one
solid thirty year!
Jest hoar them voices lifted up in muaic
high and clear;
The  old melodeon'e kinder cracked    and
nqueaky In the throat,
She feels her age like us, 1 guess, a-trytng
for a note.
There, that's the song lhat Ebcn loved.
Remember,.how he sang
That Sunday 'fore his vessel sailed, until
tin- parlor rung?
Poor hoy!   (hey think his ship waa lost in
one of tin rn typhoom.
I'm sure hh sperrlt'a With us, though, to
hear the Gospel tunes.
Ah me, how mnny times I've heard that solemn, sacred air;
I'vo heerd lt when the sky was black and
earth was Jest despair.
I've heerd It sung hy childish lips, ao tender, soft and sweet,
And knelt and prayed to God for strength
to work thai they might cat.
Through sim and cloud, through rain and
shine, tle'a fetched me on my way,
And now Ills klndnesB lets me live to see
this happy day.
I Thank Thee, Lord, who grantest me this
h'-Hi of iill Thy boons.
To hear their precious voice-*- sing once
A    more the Gospel tunes.

WHILE the evening colony at the
Alfalfa European hotel was fixing the market price of wheat the bonk
agent came out frum the hotel, lie wns
very warm, undoubtedly, fnr hla (ace
waa moist with perspiration and he
bad loosened his black siring necktie.
But when he looked up uud down tho
street and sighed it was not. the nigU
ot one who Buffered from Hie heat, but
of one who sullererl at the henrt,
"Wnnt a chair?" aaked the freckled boy,
hooking his foot iu a, chair and eliding
It over toward the book agent.
"No, no, thitnk you," was the reply,
end the book ugent turned und went
sauntering nwny.
"What's he K"1 a grouch about'.'"
asked the freckled boy,
"He's in trouble, und 1 feel sorry for
him, too," '■mbl the lightning dentist.
"His wife has sued htm for a divorce."
"The one that used U> make him ail
up ull night und rub her buck nnd then
kick because he didn't rub the right
place?" asked the 'iush."
"That's the one," replied the dentist,
"He waa telling mc some more nlr-out
Iter the other night. "I gUCBS I'm the
only one around here that he talks to
much ubout It. She's u spiritualist, n
vegetarian, a faith enre, a theophist—"
"Theosophlst," corrected "Doe"
"What's that?" naked the freckled
"Hhe thinks this isn't our first time
on earth," suld the "luah."
"Why does he object to her procuring
a divorce'.'" nsked Doc. "He hasn't
lived with her for over a year, and I
understand that he stands In dread of
her. Hhe hud him arrested for larceny
nr-*n ilMn't •he'l"
f -"Tie doesn't object to thc divorce so
much," said the dentist, "bul he hates
to plead guilt)*, Ut what she charges hlm
With. He's n very sensitive fellow, ynu
konw, and doesn't understand thnt it's
mt disgrace to be charged with cruelty,
desertion, harsh nud abusive language
and failure to provide. That's what she
charges him « Ith in ber application for
a divorce,   lie wnn telling me Inst, night
thut he was absolutely Innocent, und
thut he didn't leave her house until she
mado it no tint for him that he couldn't
remain another day."
"Is she ju good looker'.'" naked tbe
freckled boy.
"She's a sight." snid the dentist. "I
saw her the day she caught hlm here
nt the hotel and gave bim that horrible
roast. I'd like to know why In the
world lie ever married her."
"I suppose the Iwok business wan
nlow," said the "lush." "She has some
money, hasn't she?"
"She's got money now that she hnd
before the war. He says that he nearly
starved to death while he wuh living
with her. Vegeturinn, you know. Out-
meul ond prunes for breakfast, brown
bread and potatoes for dinner. You
ought to get him lo tell yon about It."
"I)o you know what I'd do if I hnd
that kind of u wife?" asked tbe freckled
hoy. "I don't believe in bein* rough
with a lndy as long ns she is one, but if
she'd ever try any of that funny work
with me I'd call her down if I had to
swing on her."
"Oh, woll, I don't know," remarked
the "lush." "It Isn't a very proper
thing to do—to slug n perfect ludy. I'd
simply go abend antl run the house In
my own wny nnd pay no attention to
anything she said. Vou see, ufter a
woman talks herself black hi the fttOO
without getting an argument she has to
"It's ton bad tbut our friend did not
confer with you gentlemen before he
left his wife," -aid "Doc," with u Half-
restrained smile. "Vou know how tu
manage women und eould have given
him some valuable advice."
"Well, I've, never beeu parried, but
I've always known one thing." snid the
dentist, "A man bus got to nsBert his
independence In his own house, tf ho
lets his wife think thai sho con order
hi in around and l lent him liken schoolboy he might us well give up nil hope
of having any liberty of his own. [don't
say that a man ought to be harsh with
a woman, but be ought to give ber to
understand thai ho cau come and go
once iu awhile without nuking her permission."
"That's right," suid the "lush." If
ibis book agent friend of ours had gum1
out and got drunk the night In* married
the tiitl girl ami then eninc home and
chased her around the house with n
hati-het she'd have had sonic respect
for him, I km w n man once whu chased
his wife with a hatchet ut least once
■ a month,    lie loved hei* ull right, and
wouldn't have harmed hor for anything
1 in the world, but he claimed thnt ho
i luul to make this hatchet demonstration
I at. least onco a month In tinier to main*
I tain his rights.   After ovory outbreak
she'd be pleasant and attentive for sev-
I oral weeks.   Then her respect for bis
; rights would begin to weaken nnd be
would   have   to   get  out   his   hatchet
"Seriously speaking. 1 dun't believe
a woman has much rcgartl fnr a mnn
who allows himself to be tied to her
apron strings." sunt the denlist.
"Why. of course not!" exclntmed the
freckled boy, with nn Indlfforcnl gesture, to show that be was an expert.
"I'll win out in ten minutes where nne
of those easy, polite guys wouldn't
moke a showin* in an hour. You've
got to make a woman think Mini you're
the reol stuff nnd know what she wants
better than she knows it herself."
"dentlemen," begun "Doe" Home,
gazing critically nt ids i-ignr os he
rolled it between his thumb nnd second finger. "Gentlemen, I went into
a store in Ohio one dny and listened
fnr an hour while three men discussed
the fine points of navigation. They
had beautiful themes as to thehiindlinc*
of vessels nnd some new ideas in shipbuilding, I learned afterward tliat md
one of thc three had ever been within
Sfld miles nf salt water, or had ever
seen about .more than 30 feet long. Vour
learned opinions regarding matrimony
nnd the management nf wives reminds
mc of that tnik on navigation."
"That is what is culled on upper-cut,*'
snid the "lush."
"Doc. I don't see nny medals on you
for getting married," remarked the
freckled boy, with a wink at the dentist.
"And ynu bave not heard me telling
of the rights nnd privileges of a hi;
band, either." said "Doc," turning ■
tho freckled hoy nnd speaking with
unusual earnestness. "Why. gentlemen, it. amuses me to hear ynu young
gentlemen sit here rind talk nbout women ond matrimony as If you bad studied
them for years. Don't yon know Hint
womnn hns been the puzzle of all figea

bond simply gets along with us Utile

spoken, half seriously, of the propriety
of a husband taming and managing a
wife ns he would a domestic animal.
Don't you know it is the brutal husband,
rather than the complaining wife, whn
mokes mnrried life n bell In so many
houses? Furthermore, you young men
who are accustomed to the skylarking

Tn the Point,
Africa always bus been afflicted with
drought, and among tho Moors prayers
are regularly offered up—Usually when
the drought already has begim—for
relief from this evil, and Hu-author of
"Ou Veldt and Farm" tolls a story of a
pastor who pointed out the futility of
assisting people who would not assist
themselves. A Presbyterian congregation onee pointed out to the minister
that, in view of the impending drought,
it were well lo approach the Almighty
on the subject of the rainfall. "I will
not insult the Almighty," replied the
sturdy Sent, "by asking sneb a favor
of Him, after the way in whieh you
hnve let His past mfercles run away
from you." The rebuke wus leveled at
the Inadequacy of the Water storage,
und it Is to lie hoped wus not without
due effect.—Youth's Companion.
