line Without a doubt the managers
had come lo this conclusion before a

The proper place for the government offices of South East
Kootenay U in some town on
the  railway. !
We arc informed by Mr. Armstrong,
gold commissioner l< rSouih Kast Koi •
■fimv, ihat ibe government hus Instructed bim lo establish deputy recording
offices at Kimberley, Fernie, Moyie and
Cranhrook. This will enable parties to
lilt* their documents at the deputy recording ofllc-CB without goillf! awav tnun
borne, and thereby save considerable expense,—Fort Steele Proipector.
This is a move iu the tight direction,
and Tbe Herald congratulates the Prospector on its agility in getting nn the
hand wagon. For the past two years It
has declared ihat recording offices were
imt needed al divisional pollltB, etc , us
prospectors did not make a practice of
locating claims on railroad grades. The
Herald, on the conlrary, has always
maintained that Fort Steele, with her
many properties tributary lo the town,
was entitled In recording facilities, ami
that an office should be maintained
there; but, that there were other sections In the district that were entitled lo
recognition in this district, as there
were many fine mining sections that
were not tributary to l-'ort Steele. We
are glad to see lhe Prospector get ii:
line. Such a course bespeaks an incli
nation to labor fnr the best Interests of
the district as a whole, ami not fur one
community alone. If the Prospector
will now continue to follow the policy
urged upou it by The Herald, it will
next advocate the establishment of the
courts at some point on the railway,
since out of 155 suits instituted in the
district since lhe -first of the year 1899,
only about twenty originated iu the ier
rllory tributary to Port Sleele. Such a
change would mean a big saving to the
people of the district, and we feel CO
dent that the Prospector would not let
any Belli sll interest prevent it from advocating that which would be a direct benefit to the people of lhe whole district.
The Prospector has a grand opporlutl

LEM RODER made his strike on the
fifth anniversary of the settlement
oi Boulder.
in those first five years of its life
Boulder had managed to save the sum
of $3,000, Boulder naturally wanted ta
be the county seal of the county of
Boulder, Aru.'. and she had starved and
siiuted herself for those live years in
order to save up enough money to per-
Buade the county thai she had the best
seating cnpaclty anywhere around, We
were, pleased, therefore, to call this *;;,-
uno our sealing fund.
Jealous persons in our lieurcst neighbor, h little lown known ns "llell-on-
the-l.order,"about 20 miles awiij , eallod
this money our corruption fund.
Roder was chairman und treasurer
of tho seating committee, and therefore had charge of the fund.
The chairman and- treasurer was
nbout as line a man as ever came over
the Bookies. If he had been a hotel-
keeper he would have been called "thul
most genial of Bonifaces." As he wits
only u hard-working citizen like tin-
rest of us, apparently wrapped Up body
and soul in the Biiecess ol Boulder,
with an honest,healthy hand-shake uud
il heart as large as the Grenl American
desert und as warm In his impulses, be
wns simply, in the words of Tom
Gable, "a decent fellow."
Wo hud the most implicit faith In
Jtader. I do not know why. Certainly
he had never had 11 olmnee to prove that
he was over-scru pul oils nbout honesty.
but men who live in I he open, wayfarers
ill a strange land, warriors of fortune,
friends of nature, grow to bo like dog-,
and little children, and their instinct
becomes so abnormally developed that
they can pick oul u good mun lhe moment they see him. However, I have
often seen a dug take a decided fancy
ior a BUI Sikes; nnd I havo often seen
a dog thnt wouldn't come within a mile
of 11 decent man; and then I've seen a
child who would he disgusted with n
clean, decent woman, und ery like all
possessed for the arms of its wretched,
dirty, decrepit nurse. So thnt I do not
see, and have always refused to see,
why Boulder should he. blamed for the
Implicit trust it reposed In Lem Boder,
From nil of whieh. therefore, it is to he
inferred that Lcin wasn't any better
than the rest of us, and had his price.
The only mistake that Boulder made
was in placing Lem's price too high.
On the day that Lem Under left
Boulder ihe whole town turned out to
see him off, and rode wUh him sonic
five miles into the desert in the direction of thc nearest railroad station.
Lem was to take the train there for
Phoenix, where he was to prove our
Beating capacity with thai $:!.0fl0 at so
many dollars per proof. I have forgotten how many men he had to convince,
but 1 remember that each proof wns to
be worth several hundreds of dollars,
Lem expected lo be gone ubout two
weeks and to return with Boulder's
prosperity in hte Inside pocket; for
with the county seat we know* we would
get the railroad into our town. We
had not a doubt of the success of the
venture, ami so wc gave Lem a rousing
scud-off and made it hero of him and a
heroine of his wife, Mrs. Lem, a little
bit of a woman with eyes that shone
like mien in a dark canyon, nnd a
sweetness like a babbling- spring In a
Mrs. Lem was not strong, and when
Lem kissed her fondly—the big, strong,
handsome hero ami lhe weak, sickly,
beautiful heroine—there were tears In
our eyes, and we meant it when we told
hlm that we'd look out for her and the
The hoy wa* Buster, four years old,

Ids mother took him in her arms aud
hugged him a little and looked into hit
big brown eyes. IJuster, you see, hadn't
learned what words he should use lo
lell his mother how much he eared for
her, and no all he could do when the
love in his heart hurt him too much
was to ery.
Mrs. Lem was something "f a saint,
to all Of us. When she and the hoy snt
down iu lhc plnzil iu Ihe-nfleruoon the
sun   USCd  to shine  upon   their gulden
heads, nnd tittle halos used to dance
all around thom, Mrs. Lem had nursed
us when the smallpox enme to town via
a confounded grouser from Reno, and
when Muster was taken down wilh it
(bid Almighty heard some new voices
and the recording angel had to look up
a glossary to trmislnto Iho prayers,
So thnt there wasn't much thut
wasn't done for her and thnt boy when
Lem WttS gone. Mrs. Lem was taken
down slok the. next day, jusi from grieving, and then we had a chance to pay
-her back. Doc Sloaue attended to her
nlghl and dny. There wasn't any bill
sent in, either.
"I'll take it out on the next invalid,"
said he,
"If she dies I'll give her the best in
Ihe house," said Tom liable, the undertaker—nud he meant  it, for he was a
warm-henrted fellow.
llut the prospect of such a horrible
thing was too milch for US, and the
Preopfor-All did n great business until
we tuid washed down the awful fear in
our hearts,
Mrs, Lem didn't die. She was well In
a week, and when she aud Buster enme
out fnr a walk the desert reechoed our
cheers, and Mrs. Lem hugged Buster,
and Buster was so happy that he cried
for five minutes, and was only quieted
when he fouud a big dog bullying a
smaller dog, whereupon he trounced
lhe big dog unmercifully.
Wc had hardly taken our first drink,
an hour later, to Mrs. Lem, Buster nnd

"1 raw him in Chicago, and spoke to

when 1 look the train for the. wist, 1

There was silence for a minute.
Doubts, hopes, fears—all played hide-
Tom liable was the first to find his
"iu-hy." he Bald.
"What's the mutter'.1" asked Truslow.
"Our seating fund," replied Gable;
"we won't seal this year,"
Then in a few words Tom told him
all about il.
An angry murmur went around.
Then* was lynching iii the air that
night, it didn't help Improve the atmosphere very much, either.
"Humph!" said Doc Slonne, "whot'll
Mrs. Lem say—and IJuster?"
Then n strange thin;; happened.
We were standing ut the bur. Our
drinks had been poured out, but in the
excitemenl we had forgotten them.
We took our glasses In our hands and
looked down inlo thom, and then suddenly, rlghl down in ihe bottoms uf
the g!,is;rR, iu th*' wliinlcv nnd wnter,
the pictures <>r lwo golden heads
peeped oui full nnd fair, with the sunbeams shining down ou them so that
the little bains danced aU around. *\
tstrange place for two golden-haired, Innocent little heads to be, wasn't it?
We took our drinks. %* 11 l«jppp|

Ir* tho e art tho crowd Iffould- hay-a

In hard luck themselves, and will see
us out."
Why. we were nil happy again.
Prosecute Lem7 Nol much! Break
that liitii'. heart?   Not a hit of it!
It was deeideii that Jim should start
the next day. As to Mrs. Lem. we were
lo wait a day or so to see what wns to
be done.
A few dnys later word eame from lhe
effete east tlml Lem wax iu New York.
A kind friend wrote, to Tom Gable and
said ihat, by-the-wuy, Lem Mas nt tho
Astor house. Tom wrote back at once
to the friend and told bim lu keep an
eye on Lem.
No word came direct from the man
wbo had made the strike, however, and
ns oue or two of the women had heard
all about Lem's defalcation we didn't
know at what time some sympathizing
female might go to Mrs. Lem aud tell
her nil about it. So it was decided to act
ut onee.
Tom Cable wrote to his friend in the
east to meet Mrs. Lem at the Grand
Central und tuke her to her huslmnd,
and then he and Doe Sloane called on
"Have you henrd from Lem?" they
"No," replied she; "have you?"
"Yes," said Tom; "lie's gone to New
York, lie has settled our business for
us, and he got Inlo a faro-game in
Phoenix and made a few thousands."
"Indeed!" remarked Mrs. Lem; "It's
funny he didn't write to me aboutlt."
"Well." said Tom, "you see he writes
that he's too busy. II.* sent me $200
for you. and you nre to pa.:k up mid
go to hlm at ouce,"
Mrs. Lem took the money.
"lie wants you lo leave hen* to-morrow. Doc am! I will see you to the railroad, and you'll be met at ihe Grand
Central by Jim Carroll. You remember him, of course. Lem is tuo busy.
lie's making toads of money."
Mrs. Lem uud fluster left us the next
dny, 11 was a sad day for ull of us. We
cheered thein as they rode off with llie
last $300 left in lown,
When ihey got io the railroaditatton
Doc Sloane handed  Mrs, Lem a letter
for her huibnml.
"Give that io Lem when you see him,"
said he. "Good-by, ma'am, antl Musler,
take cure, of innr 111,1111111:1, and If you're
good you'll he a man before she Is."
Mrs. Lem hugged Duster, nnd Duster
eried l'ur the last time in thc territory
of Arizona.
The train Btnrted, ami when Mrs.
Lem handed over the letter to her husband he read:
"Dr?ar Lent: Never mind whnt you did.

love them with all your heart fur nil er vuur

"Well," snid Tom thnt night, as we

The sound of hoofs could be heard,
and a moment Inter Jim Truslow
dashed In.

Interview With K. A, I.i-tri*. "Who lias
.Iimt HetiiriH-U I*'nun n Tour of Infection—He Cull)pares the Dairy Industry
of Denmark mid Manitoba—Scarcity uf
Hog* In Munltolm.
R. A. Lister, president of li. A.
Lister & Co., limited, manufacturers of
cream separators and other dairy machinery whose Winnipeg branch has
since its inception three years ago been
under tbe able management of Wm.
Scott bas jnst completed his annual
tour of inspection and returns to England this week. Being requested to
give his opinion on the dairy industry
in Manitoba he said: "Until the farmers go in more for milk and stock raising tlie country will never be on a sure
and certain road to prosperity. This
continuous wheat raising is like an
unthrifty man who lives on liis capital
instead of his interest, and if he lives
long enough thc poor liout-e alone
awaits bim. Tuke tho farmers through-
ont tbe world and yon w ill find the
man wbo milks cows iu addition to
other branches of his bnsimegis the
best off; he has tbe best home, the
cheapest and best tabic, uud the most
ready money. Iu fact, he has uot all
his eggs iu one ba ket. Ibis is specially important in Manitoba, where the
wheat crop has been aud will be subject to certain elinintic risks nnd where
the home demand for the product of u
dairy farm in increasing both in this
province and British Columbia. Milk,
creaui, butter, chese, pork, calves, are
all iu active demand.
"When I compare this province and
IU'iiiiiaik, both l ith long und severe
winters, I am struck* with the scnut
provision for keepin stock in the winter. In Deuintirk (lie row stables nre
loug, cheaply constructed, yet warm
buildings with straw thatch roofs nd*
joining the ftirin house at one ■ nd. The
door from the house does not open ou
tbe cows, bnt iuto nn intermediate
room used for sorting all things
required. The cows am in two rows
bacK to back, with infHolent room for
oleaning out and sulllcient room in
(rout of lhe mangers tor feeding from
a barrow or trolley cur. The ventilation is Irom the apex nf the roof nud
the temperature kept at nbout 6-3 de*
green Karenheii. The milkers have
uot lo go out. in tin* cold on a winter
morning. Il is a general practice to
put nil milk OOWS in the stable from
October 90 to May 'JO. Tho Danish
dairy farmer is. as a rule, fairly well
off, and lives well) they mostly own
their own farms, Hand skimming or
deop Belting is now unknown, the
cream separator is universal; their butter is the finest lu thfl world, and commands the best price in Kngliiiul. They
also feed a very huge number of hogs
ou their separator milk, tmrloy and
corn-the latter tbey Import,
"I think the scarcity of hogs in this
province is a matter Hint cannot bo too
forcibly urged on the farmers, although
flue pork and bacon can only bo obtained where skiui milk is avullablu to
mix with barley, corn or damaged
wheat. Many of theso things, I am
awan*. have been told bofore—bnt old
truths will do with repeating.
"My Arm started n creamery at
Brandon this year nnd mado 65,000
pounds of butter; Ihe farmers have been
paid iu caali for their cronm every
month. For November wo shall pay
them 10 cents per pound. We purchased tho old court houso nt Morris,
equipped it as a creamery, and pnt a
gasoline launch on the river to collect
crenm from tho river Bide farms. This
we have dono with oue object ouly, viz,,
to establish tho business on a sound
basts for the cream gathering system,
and provide (he farmers with a ready
cash market for their cream. I am glad
to hear from the patrons I have met tbut
onr efforts even this first year htve been
successful and much appreciated
"At the pnsiit moment Manitoba
Is not taking foil advantage of her
great opportunities for supplying the
western market with choice dairy products. The ready demand for fine fresh
butter, and the satisfactory prices such
an artlole commands should be an In
centlve to farmers to lnorrose their
herds, to develop the prodnction of
milk the yeur round, and to provide all
the facilities for making butter of first
quality, and in quantity commensurate
