BAKER STREET IS HANDSOME.
A Floe Bit ot Uridtoi Hai Made It  So—A
Few Suggestion*.
Tbe grading of Baker street bas been
completed, and Its present appearance
is a credit to Cranhrook, and would he
to nny town twice Ha size. It te also
creditable to MeBsrs Breckinridge and
Lund, lhe contractors who did the Job
so quickly nnd nicely. The street at
present presents n very handsome appearance, and wilh people-going through
on the trains will inspire n belief tlmt
tbe citizens of Cranbrook are enterprising, energetic atul above all particular
to bave their streets nud avenues attractive in looks.
lt might not be well to encourage that
belief however, as the traveling public
would be apt to make comparisons elsewhere which would Induce people contemplating a change of residence to come
to Cranbrook to make their future
homes, Thia possibility can be easily
defeated by our merchants. If tbe street
was to retain its present neat and attractive appearance some might say "Cranbrook is doing no business; you don't
Bee boxes, barrels, refuse paper, and a
hundred and one olber articles piled up
on tbe streets." So it might be well for
the merchants, ou Baker street espec
tally, to stack np all the old packing
boxes possible iu front of tbeir stores,
take all tbe packing paper, excelsior,
etc., that comes with the goods packed
and throw tbem out in the streets—it
saves the unnecessary labor of removing
tbem to the back alley. Besides, if you
do not do so people may really think no
busiuess ia being done in Craubrook.
Of course, from an esthetic point of
view, the attractiveness of the street will
not be improved, but it will be a proof
to many that goods are beiug received
iu Craubrook, aud besides will save five
or teu minutes work iti moving them to
tbe rear. By all means stack all this
stuff and rubbish on Baker street in front
of your stores.
THE SC0T1 CONCERT.
It Was (liven at the Presbyterian Church
Monday Night.
As announced, the concert to tie given
at tbe 1'resbyterian church Monday
evening, by T. J. Scott, assisted by local
talent, look place. The audience wasof
a fair size, and the entertainment quite
pleasing.
Mr. Scott is a tenor singer of considerable ability nnd also possessed of a large
(uud of Scottish anecdotes and jokes-,
which be relates witu a strong Scott* &
accent proving very interesting aud
amusing to his audience.
Aiuoug the local contributors several
were well-known young ladies who
rendered musical numbers in a very acceptable manner. The elecultonary
number by Miss Jardine wasof a difficult
nature, requiring much skill to successfully render; it might I** termed a uitdly
starting with 'Toe's Raven," then suddenly breaking off into a recitation of
the charge of the "Light Brigade," tbeu
into llie ridiculous and comic, The extreme changes in the nature of the recitation requiring considerable control of
facial as well aa vocal expression, which
weie well done.
The "stai" of the evening, of course
was Mr, Scott, wilh his strong, rich
tenor voice, although the pastor him
self proved himself a singer in no small
degree.
Mrs. Costigan was the accompanist nt
the piano; her work and ability is so
well known that comment would be
superfluous.

BIG ORE  BODIES
Development Shows Great Quantities
Rich in Silver and Lead
EXTENSIVE   COAL   FIELDS
South   East   Kootenay  Is  a  Vast  Depository
of Various Precious Metals, and Is
Surprising the World.
DEVELOPMENT REVEALS WONDERS
That South East Kootenay, in a very short time, will be
one of the greatest producers of mineral wealth on the continent is now a fact undeniable, as its shipments of silver-lead
ores and coal products daily are sufficient to furnish ample
business for the Crow's Nest Pass Railroad, a branch of the
C. P. R. nearly three hundred and fifty miles in length.
Although scarcely three years old ln development, the
comparatively small district southwest and northwest of
Cranbrook furnishes three of the greatest silver-lead mines on
the continent, with the prospect bf, in a few months, -being
unequalled,'individually or collectively, by any other mines of
the same nature on earth.
The Herald refers to the St. Eugene, Sullivan and North
Star mines, whose present monthly output, with the Sullivan
shipping development ore, the North Star for a considerable
time simply cleaning up the bins and levels, and the St.
Eugene shipping concentrates from a mill now equal to no
more than one-half of the mine's outputtlng capacity, far
more than equalling the entire tonnage of the justly celebrated Slocan country during the first half of the present
ycm. jum mink 01 it—tne tonnage or tnree mines scarcely
three years old, producing more than six times as much as
that of a country for eight years famous for Its silver-lead
mines. .
And yet this is but a "starter." These shipments are
being rapidly increased by the.mines mentioned. In addition,
there are many prospects in the North Star-Sullivan and St.
Eugene camps which are awaiting but moderate Investments
to become shipping and' paying'mines. As a matter of fact
some of them are already beginning to ship, and It Is highly
probable that the Society Girl, ai Hoyie, as well as one or
two others in the same camp, will need no new Investment of
capital for their development, as they already have shipping
ore in considerable quantities.
It is only a question Of a reasonable length of time—as
mine development goes—when the country within a radius of
25 miles southwest and northwest of Cranbrook will become
the greatest-silver-lead producing district on the continent,
with the possible exception of the great Coeur d' Alene district In Idaho.' Indeed, so far as it has been developed, It Is
now far superiur to that famous region, the grade of ores being richer, and the quality regarding the necessities for concentration surpassing greatly that great lead producer,
whose output exceeds $1,500,000 per month.
The St. riary's region is also a country that should receive the immediate attention of mining investors. The great
mining magnates of the world have, almost without exception,
made their money out of --pro$pects"--the only place to Invest
money If you can do su intelligently. In both copper and lead
the St.' riary's region offers grand surface showings; surface
showings do not,-by a long way, always make mines; the best
of them require more ur less digging, both Into the earth and
Into the pocket.
No field of investment affords as great returns for money
as mining for prechus minerals, and it is a mistake to think
that more money is lost in that way than in other avenues of
business as a reference to the bankrupts' column of liabilities
for any decade will show more money lost in commercial
transactions than in mining during the same time—including
all the swindles of the latter.
*      COAL MINING.
In coal South East Kootenay is showing measures unsurpassed In magnitude and quality by any other known district
In the world/ Already there is a lack of cars to convey the
products of these mines to the various markets anxious to secure them. The coke of Fernie is unsurpassed by that of the
famous Connellsvllle region In Pennsylvania, and in demand
by all the smelters of the great west, as Is the coal by all of
the railroads.
A wonderful country is this South East Kootenay. Its
timber resources are also very great, of which more extended
mention will be made at some future time.
No better place ln the land exists for the Intelligent and
profitable investment of capital than South East Kootenay,
and especially In the territory Immediately adjacent to Cranbrook.
HOW CAPTAIN PARKER DIED.
A Letter From "Will" Edwards Gives Details
ot Ibe Sad Affair.
All bave been familiar with the fact
for some lime that Captain Parker, of
the S-rathcoria Horse, was killed several
weeks ago iu an engagement with the
Uoers. An extract from a letter under
date of August 4. regarding the event,
written to ti. Small by " Wall" Hd-
wards, will doubtless prove interesting
reading.   It is as follows:
" . . . Well, old boy, we bad a
very sad affair happen since I last wrote
you Sergeant (or Captain Parker, as
you knew bim) was killed last Monday
—sbot right through tlie heart—and private Arnold, from Pernie, was badly
wounded in the leg; in fact be is liable
to lose It, Filleeii ot us went to bring
in about 30 Boers; they wauted to turret) ■
der; it was about six miles from camp,
and there were five houses close together
all Hying the white flag, und the Boers
were all around iu the creek bottom; so
tbey let us get withiu too to .00 yards
from tbem, then fired on us from three
sides. Say! you ought to see us go, and
tbe Uoers chasing us for two miles, I
don't see how it was we weren't all
killed, as the bullets flew all around us.
Hut, say! We gave 'em all the 'high
ball.1 Parker and Arnold were about
400yards to the ri-^ht of us, und when
they retreated they made over toward
the rest of the troop to j ltd them,
but they ran right into the Uoers, evidently mistaking them for us, as tbey
were dressed in khaki also. They told
Arnold tbat if be and Parker hnd held
up their hands when they told them to
tbey would never have sbot thein. They
went out in the afternoon and got Parker's body, but they could not find Arnold.
The lioers took him into tbe house that
night, and be says tbey used bttn fine
. . . Well, old boy, I will tell you
bow all the hoys are getting along. Hub
Shaw is in the hospital at Standerton
witb rheumatism aud feeling pretty
badly; Harry Mellon ia still in tbe hospital; Ike Poster is slill at Dunbar, aud
I don't kuow how he is getting along,
all the rest uf tbe lads are feeling fine;
. , . Hest respects to yourself and all
the hoys. From Old Ned."
AT THE C. P. R. SHOPS.
The Largest Force In tbe History ot lhe Plait
Is Now There Employed.
There are now 41 men employed in and
around tbe C. P. R roundhouse and
shops Ht Cranbrook. This is about a 25
per cent, larger force than ever before
employed tbere, and will probably be
Increased rather than diminished in
months to come. There is a large
amount of repair work upou engines already in sight, without looking to the
future for work—a condition induced,
probably, by lhe strike.
. Tbe large boiler used for beating purposes and supplying hot water his been
removed to tbe main building, where it
will be more convenient and tbe attachments less liable to be affected by the
cold weather of winter.
More moguls are being brought over
on tbe branch, and tbe amount of business done is limited only hy tbe car supply; this is more especially the case regarding can for coal
May Be Ibe Ammonia Lake.
Canterbury Outcrop: While prospecting about 40 miles up the North Fork
of Horse Thtef creek, Frank Stockdale
discovered a lake of bot water about
S.ooo feet above tbe sea level. He states
tbat the water is fo hot tbat he could
not bathe in it. This lake is situated on
tbe summit of tbe range of mountains
which divide Horse Thief and. Number
Two creeks, and it is the uppermost one
of three lakes. The other two are cold
water and each are about a quarter of a
mile below the hot one which is on the
very top of the divide. Tbe day be was
there it seemed to be much higher than
usual as around the edge there was grass
for about ten feet out in tbe water. He
said tbe lake appeared to be very deep
in tbe center aud the water a very dark
blue very similar to that ol Lake Superior and Ontario. Mr. Stock laie is very
much interested in bis discovery which
is certainly verging on the phenomenal
to be found at so high an altitude.
A Third Amputation.
William Ilolven, tbe railroad man who
lost a poitioti of his hand at Fernie
about 10 days ago, is having a very serious time. The wound was not properly
eared hr in the first place, and when he
finally came to Cranbrook to have Dr.
King attend to it, it was in a serious conditiou. Tbe doctor performed one amputation, eudeavoring to save a portion
ofthe band, but blood poisoning ensued, followed by a second and third
amputation until near tbe-shoulder. It
is to be hoped that this will prove sufficient.
Mr. Finis, who lost a hand in tbe
yards a few days since, is getting along
nicely, although still suffering considerable pain. [
Inspcctlaf Ibe Country.
Mr. J. C. Drewry, the well-known mim
Ing promoter of Moyie, accompanied by
Messrs, H, R. Wagner of New York, W
R, Maclnnes of Winnipeg and W. M.
Peters of Nelson took a special train up
to Kimberley a few days since. Mr.
Drewry 1ms been showing the party tbe
mines of South K.ist Kootenay and con*
vlnciug tbem that this is one of the
greatest silver-lead regions on eattb.
Miy Operate Here.
Thomas Proctor, the well-known mine
and townsite promoter may conclude to
operate in and about Crailbrook. It Is
reported that there are two 01 three
propositions under consideration wblcb
only need a good pushers attention lo
make mines of.
GREAT SULLIVAN STRIKE
Reported That the Ore Body Has Been
Caught by a Winze.
PROOF THAT IT IS NOT A BLANKET
The Society Girl,  at  Moyie, Has
Ten Carloads of Ore On
the Dump.
NET A THOUSAND DOLLARS A CAR
It is authentically reported thnt last
Monday night  the  winze in   the  lower
orkings ofthe Sullivan mine had penetrated the ore body. The extent ot the
ore or its value is unstated, but there is
no reason to believe that it is Inferior in
any respect to ihat where extraction has
been going ou.
The grent feature connected with the
encountering of ore in the winze is the
demonstration of the fact, which many
were in doubt about, tbat the ore goes
lown nnd is nol •.-•eisistenl in blanket
form.
The Sullivan will Indeed become one
of the noted mines of lhe world.
THE    SOCIETY   UIRL.
This New Producer No* Has Ten Carloads
ol Ore Oa tbe Dump.
Charlie Parrel! is undoubtedly "in it"
again. George Johnson returned yester-
lay morning from a trip to Moyie with
the Society Girl as tbe objective point of
his visit. He says there are teu carloads
of ore on the dump that will net ficoo
per car, and in the bottom of tbe bole
from whence tbis ore was taken tbe ore
body ti eight feet wide. Tbe ore is in
the nature of solid silver-lead aud carbonates, some of the latter of which are
rare and beautiful, especially the bard
white carbouates.
Probably no mine in the country has
made such a magnificent showing at tbe
same stage of development
WILL OPEN OLD niGOINOS.
Tbe Rldfe*i>. at Movie Falls, Which Was lhe
Death of Its Owner and Namesake.
Several years ago a man by the name
of Ridgeway was working placer ground
near the fall, of ihe Movie, a considerable distance above Moyie lake Tbe
grouod is what is known as drifting diggings, and history teils tbat it paid $400
per week to the four men workingtbere.
But one day misfortune came to
Ridgeway, and while working in the
600-foot tunnel that had been drove
through the era vet, it caved, probably
through earless timbering, and Ridgeway waa caught and lost his lift before
being extricated; since lhat time the
claim bas laid idle, no one apparently
careing to tackle it. Finally Messrs
West, Wolf, Quern, Miller and Sim Palmer arrived at tbe conclusion tbat tbe
mine can be reopened and worked as
successfully as before, bave relocated tl,
and will start in this week wilh a new
tunnel, and see if it will yield as richly
as before.   	
Tbe Frailer Mine.
Nelson Tribune: William Mowat,ex-
president of the Nelson Miners* t'nion,
is in from the Paller mine in Bast Kootenay for a day or two, and states that
the property is looking particularly well.
It is located on Whitefish creek, I5 miles
from Marysville* and is being operated
by Charles A McKay of Nelson, who
represents the Chicago capitalists who
hold the bond.
The Paller is a copper and gold property, having an average of 20 per cent
copper and enough gold to pay for mining, transportation and treatment. Six
men are at work, and the development
to date consists ot 400 feet of tunnelling
and ioo feet of shall. The lead is four
feet in width and is now being tapped at
a depth of 900 feet.
Tbe owners contemplate putting in on
electric tram to transport their ore eight
and a half miles to a point where tlie
new government road, now under way,
will be reached A report it circulated
too, that the C. P. R. will build a sj ur
through Sawyer's pass next year which
will give the St. Mary's country fnst-
class transportation facilities.
Tbe Electric Llffat Co.
The electricians for tbis company are
busily engaged in wiring residences and
business houses, in all parts of the town
and, the public generally is patronizing
the modern illuminator.
The C. P. R. depot, offices and shops
are to be illuminated by tbe company,
and it is probable arc lights will be
placed in the yatds. See rBtcs elsewhere.

The handwriting on the wall plainly
snys that this vicinity will be tb • scene
of 11 great mining boom during the ensuing year, and it will not be a wild-cot
or unhealthy boom, either. The prospects tbnt make mines are here, as it
has already beeu demonstrated that tbe
greatest ol mines are developed from
prospects in this vicinity.
New Denver Ledge: Rev, T. DeWitt
Tulmflge sagely observen lhat "a newspaper whose columns overflow with ad-
vertisements of business men has mere
Influence in attracting attention than
any olher agency that can be employed,
People go where there is business.
Capital and labor will locate where there
ia *un enterprising community. No
power on earth is so strong to build up a
town as a newspaper well patronized,
and its power should he appreciated."
Thc war, as a war, is over in South
Africa, but troubles are still iiumiueut
iu China, We in South Kast Kootenay,
however, care more fur the acquisition
of mines than of territory, anil the development of our timber and agricultural
resources than the promotion of the so-
called "white man's burden" theory,
which is nice enough for the poet and
destroyer of races. If tbere is such a
Creator as wc nre taught to believe in,
the while man is simply denying the
wiseness of His acts and seeking to undo
His work.

Mr. Win. McHattie, cutter for Mclnnes & Co., had a very narrow escape
from a violent death one afternoon last
week. He was eugaged in killing a beef
at the slaughterhouse, and as usual abot
the steer, Sometimes more than one
shot is needed to down a big steer, so
this time Mr. McHattie placed another
shell in the chamber and set the rifle
nway already loaded and cocked. Shortly after, while looking for a knife, he ac-
cidently knocked a cleaver over, the
handle of which struck the hammer of
the rifle causing It to go off. Mr. McHattie was -Hooping slightly at the time,
and had his face almost over the muzzle
ofthe rifle, the ball froui which only
missed his forehead by an inch or so.
Naturally such a narrow escape unnerved
him for a time, and little wonder.

Washington under authority ot the
commissioner of labor, lt may be no
surprise, therefore, to muny to know
that the eleventh annual report ofthe
commissioner of labor contains in tabulated form, reduced to exact percentages, a statement allowing thc occupations of divorced women.
The bureau of the statistical expert In
charge of tabulation divides the female
population of the United States often
years or upward Into four general
classes, First there are the married,
who number 13,16 per cent, Then there
ure tbe widows, who number 1*8.10 per
cent. Third is the class of the "single
and unknown;" these number li'J.S-i per
cent, Finally there are the divorced,
who constitute nine-tenths of one per
cent, of the female population of ten
years of age or.over In the United Stntes,
and they are distributed throughout
various occupations, whieh the statistical experts have endeavored to state
with undevtatlng exactness. Of the
total number of divorced women employed, it seems that ..1 per cent, are
bookbinders, .US are shoemakers and
,60 arc corset makers, A much smaller
proportion, .42, are saleswomen, while
6P are telegraph and telephone operators. Stenographers and typewriters
nuke up ,67 per cent., and .in arc mill
lands.
The otliHal statisticians at Washing-
.on look neither to the right nor to thc
eft in tbeir tabulation and It need be
no surprise, therefore, to know that
t .i'i of the divorced women of the I'nlted
states who have anv business occupation are merchants, io-i arc carpet makers, and .40 are hat and cap makers.
Milliners come under a separate division, their percentage of divorced
women being 1.112. Of seamstresses
there are 1,35, and of clerks and copyists
.51. Moreover, .20 are boxmakers, .68
printers, .31 cigarette and tobacco makers, .64 in the confectionery business,
1,43 dressmaker*. .46 paper mill operators, and .13 In silk mills.
Thc professions have a considerable
number of divorced women, 1.84 being
music teachers and 1.18 teachers of art*.-
There are 3.33 per cent, described as
hotel, restaurant and saloon keepers
and barkeepers and a somewhat larger
proportion as boarding or lodging house
keepers; 1.62 aa laundresses; 1.80 as
iiiirsi-H, und .51 aa agricultural laborers.
In one particular, however, the report
of the commissioner of labor seems to
be pretty nearly exact, for 3.28 of the
total number of divorced women are
put down as agents and it Is a matter of
very general observation that divorced
women make excellent agents where
persistence and volubility arc required.

TO PREPARE SAVORY HAM.
It •Utrnr II* Boiled In Cider or Baked la
rule.
Cider will soon be very cheap, and a
gallon can be put to no better use than
to help in producing the perfection of
boiled hams. Choose n medium-sized
ham, wash, scrub, weigh und soak in
plenty of oold water for 24 hours; wipe
dry and simmer iu the cider, allowing
15 minutes tu each pound. Allow- it
to stand over night to cool in tbe liquor,
then peel off the itkln and wipe with a
soft cloth until the surface ia dry from
moist fut. Garnish with aspic jelly and
boiled vegetables cut in fancy shapes.
A very savory meat jelly may be quickly made for garnishing when aspic is
not at hand, by making clear bouillon
from chopped beef or beef paste, color
witb sliced unions fried very brown in
butter, and pour a pint boiling hot on
quarter of a box of gelatine suaked for
a few minutes in a. Httlt* cold broth
Salt and pepper to taste, strain and put
away to net,
A luiiiu tHikvd In a paste is another
delicious change, and mice tbis recipe,
tl'ougb slightly extra trouble, is tried
the ordinary one will be laid aside, tire-
pare the ham as directed above, mix
up ubout a quart of Hour with enough
cold wuter to muke a .tiff paste. Cover
the tlckli side with this. Put in a moderate oven; while the cniM is still soft
begin to baste with sherry wine; do
tbis every ten minutes until a large
cupful is used; after tbut there will be
■ilHicient gravy in the pan to continue.
Ten mniitr.-. more must be allowed for
each [smhkI in cooking, as the paste protects the meat. When done the crust
and skin are lo be peeled off, the luitu
sprinkled with crisp bread crumbs and
Bunt to table gamiithed us above.   The
busting is troublesome, but with cooler
autumn duys should not be minded.
Ilarbceued haan may be served by help
of a little sherry. I'm a large slice of
the baked bam in the hot frying pan;
season with pepper, salt and mixed
in 11 .itunl; add a touspoon of vinegar; it
will brown quickly on one side; keep
tbe pan on a hot placet turn the slice,
sprinkle in a very little Ktigar and a
wineglass of sherry; bring to the boil
and serve. Tbe sugar Is not noticeable,
but does sway with the acidity of the
vinegar and brings out the tlavor.---San

Mrs. Hoon (looking up from her
newspaper)—I have just been reading
of a pretty widow who has sued a man,
who broke two of her ribs while hugging her, for $5,000 damages. The
wretch ought to have to pay heavily for
Injuring her so, hadn't he?
Old Hoon—Aw, I don't know! Most

Dtt-ii of Heroism ia tk« Wreck ol the
T-cao-uia.   OA  -tabal  Penlauisia.
To the brief announcement from Australia of the wreck of the steamer Tasmania with heavy loss of life, mall advices from New* Zealand add stirring
particulars.
Wheu the steamer left Auckland on
July US she hud on board -5 saloon ami
33 steerage passeti^eii-s, including a
mimber booked through from Sydney.
The place where the vessel was lost i.s
off the extreme northern point of the
Mahal pentusula-, between Utaborne ami
Napier, where Hat rooks, awash at high
tide, extend seaward a mile ft-om the
shore. I it dirty weather and on a dark
night the steamer, in charge of the
third officer, ran nearer into lund than
was consistent with safety. The captain, aroused  too iat-e,  wus unable to j
avert the danger, and the vessel struck
even as the order was given to bring
her head out to sen.
It is satisfactory to know that all on
board, passengers and crew, exhibited
courage and common sense. There was
no sign of panic, and it was apparently
v ith good intent, though In apparent
bravado, that one -man set himself to
play the piano In order to keep up the
women's spirit*, The boats were got
jut quickly and the transfer, despite a
heavy sea, made without much dMH-
cttlty. Two hours after striking the
steamer went down, bows Hrst, and thc
boat* made the best of their way to
shore.
The loss of life occurred in landing.
I'he larger boats, containing nearly ull
thc passengers, came through safely,
but the dingy, in which were eight men,
turned turtle In the-surf aud two of the
occupants were drowned. The chief
steward's boat ts also supposed to have
capsized, and It is feared that its occupants are drowned. Six bodies have
been washed ashore and the loss of life
altogether is put at 13, including two
men who perished in an attempt to
rescue.
An old Maori saw the steward's boat
trying to effect a landing at How Harbor In a very heavy surf. They appeared to have only one oar pulling and
a ete-er oar. The boat capsized In the
surf, and every man swam to the beach.

The first case of black rain which
cornea uuder review occurred nt -firri-
hamstowu and tho surrounding district in August, isss, nml it oxtdiutcii
ovor an area of nu loss than 800 square
miles, snys Chambers' Journal. Since
then thore have huppeued several
showers of n similar description, but
...ss pronounced lu tbolr sable character. Other showers of black rain have
boon recorded lu Ireland, one of which
was felt over an area of 400 Square
in lies.
No one seems to have microscopically
examined tlio wnter wblcb fell at Om*
bamstowu, but It was noted tbat the
liquid gradually cleared wben placed
. lu a suitable vessel, and a block pre-
■ cl pi into fell from It. In the latter cases
referred to the deposit hns been carefully examined and wus fouud to consist of microscopic organisms; which
averaged about tliu twelve thousand
live hundredth part uf au'inch In
length, umi which were identified with
tbe same fungoid organisms that ore
responsible for blight In the plants
which they Infest and subsequently
for smut, tulldOW uud rust In wheat
ami barley.
The writer sums up his remarks
thus: "Humidity is known to contribute largely to tho copious production
of fungi, and 11111*111': protracted drought
tlio regions affected thereby will remain comparatively bare of fungi, but
during ihe seasons of frequent rainfalls tin* production of a fungoid vegetation is largely Increased."

every clerk and every wayfarer desires to
supplement his luncheon of bread and
