Reasons for the Promotion and
Interesting Historical Notes
Hugh Watt. M. D., writing
the  Cranbrook   Herald,   says: I permanent i0ae mine8i
You have published recently j matter of fact, however
some notes by Mr. Pollen on
the history ot the K. C. R. since
that gentleman became connected with it. Now it might
perhaps interest your readers
to have h few reminiscences regarding railway matters and
the history of our enterprise
prior to that date
The writer, studying the railway situation in South East
Kootenay as it had been created
by the construction of the B. C.
Southern railway (the statutory
name) commonly called now
the Crow's Nest line or moro
irrevently "The Crow," was not
satisfied that the best route had
been chosen, having in mind
the general development of the
great natural resources of the
district. Seeing that the agricultural and mining resources
of the country lying east of the
Kootenay river had been so
unwisely neglected by the Magnates of the C. P. R., his first
thought was to encourage the
introduction into tho valley of
a competing line; and for that
purpose, in the fall of 1899, he
ventured to take a trip to St.
Paul to meet the famous ex-
Canadian railway builder, J. J.
Hill. He was fortunate in being very affably received by
that gentleman, with whom he
discussed the coal and other resources of the valley. The information he was able to give
Mr. Hill regarding the just then
proved qualities of the Fernie
coal, led him to make trial of it
a fow weeks later on his Great
Northern line; and the reports
he received from his engineers
(which reports by the way were
duly published in tlie papers)
induced him ultimately to acquire a large interest in the
Fernie coal company, and later
to build the Crows Nest Southern railway, connecting the
Great Northern with the Fernie
coal iields. Out of this visit
(made solely in the public interest) bas come a vastly increased activity in our coal
mining industry, and to follow
from it still, there will be seen
in the days to come more active
development of our varied resources, more extensive railway
building and a more general
prosperity than our district has
yet enjoyed.
But to  resume our reminiscences.   It was one of the most
effective arguments  used  with
the people of Eastern  Canada
to induce them to consent to a
substantial cash subsidy for the j would  have
construction of the B. C. South-! Joseph creek
ern, that if would  lead  to  the j heavier grade
development of our  wonderful j lessly  encountered  in    passing
coal Iields and other  mineral through Isadore canyon on  the
resources of Southern  British higher instead of the lower leve
the writer came into the district
in the early spring of 1897, there
was a great ileal of prospecting
work going on at varioi s points
in the range east of the Koot-I
eiiay >\"^y <>» «[*t Horse, I EnthusiasUc
where the rich depos ol placer gold gave reasonal .* ground
to hope for the dis very of
even richer anil, of course, more
As a
when
the railway was iiuished and in
operation along its present
route, and no provision had
been made to furnish transportation to developing properties east of the river, owners
got tired of paying assessments
and very soon all development I
Work ceased. This was not in
the interest of the province, nor
did it fulfill the expectations of
the eastern Canadian supporters of the railway subsidy. Of
course the writer nor any one
else can say with certitude that
no paying mines will ever be
discovered in the rocky range
east of the river—though something of that similtude has been
read in certain governmental
annual reports of years past.
As an observer in somewhat
intimate connection with the
work of construction as it proceeded through the valley, it
has always seemed to the writer that there was to< much
haste to get from point to point
and ultinirtely to roach the
Kootenay lake by a given date
in 1808; that the country was
not explored with sufficient
thoroughness either to find the
best grades possible, or witli a
view to the adoption of the
route bent calculated to secure
the largest .'•jvelopmeut of our
latent natural resources. For
instance, after reaching Elko,
had the road been carried along
at the foothills past the iron
deposits and the magnificent
water power of Pull river, and
thence past Lost creek, Man's
creek and Wild Horse to Fort
Steele, there would have bebn a
stimulus given to the various
companies then doing development work in hesitating fashion
that might have led to the discovery of something valuable.
At any rate a mineral territory
would have been covered, that
by the adopted route has boon
left over since unserved. This
was unfortunate, and the more
so, as after leaving the mountains at Elko, the "Crow" traverses no mineral bearing territory for a distance of fully fifty
miles till the St. Eugene mine
is reached at Moyie. But by
the east side route quite twenty miles of mineral country
would have been covered; and
crossing on a single span bridge
a mile above Fort Steele, the
valley of the St. Mary's would
have been entered and slowly
rising to it's benches on it's
southerly side, .Joseph creek
been crossed and
reached by no
than  was  need-

A Shapely Cigar Means
Comfort in Smoking
Mid vuu ever smoke a cigar Hint felt ns though veeu had the handle of a hay-fork in your
mouth—that stretched your juws till the muscles were in duuger ot' pormanent  dislocation*?
ll' you have, you will know what I nieun when I refer lc, the shape of u cigar us being
one of the points which determine the ditferei  betwi 1 geeod nnd 11 bud cigar.
Of course igur. like a  mau, cannot travel  on  its shape  nlone.    It  must  have  other
eemilities ol' excellence. Its aroma must be perfect, it musl drnw well unci smoke evenly, and
ihe1 lluveer must   be 1 rue1 throughout the whole smoke.
Hut I.els of cigars have these qualities which ure vet ,111 unsatisfactory smoke.
The smoker perhaps doesn't realize just what it is he doesn't like. But all the while
ie is smoking his cigar he is struggling to keep 11 grip oil the end of it, which slides and
wriggles until  tiie wrapper hangs in shreds from the belt.
Ilis cigar lucks shape,
If vou want to realize how important is the shape of 11 cigar in deciding ou the choice of
11 smoke, try a BUCK-EYE.
There are other cigars, perhaps, crp.nl in aroma, wjuul in tobaceo, equal perhaps in all
the  little  points which  go to make a  satisfying smoke,
l!ut the BUCK-EYE is nothing if it is not perfect, and perfection in a cigar cannot be
achieved unless perfection iu shape is acquired.
.lust ns much cure uml expense has been incurred iu arriving at the ideal shape of cigar in
the BUCK-EYE as i.e nny other point of excellence..
P.S.—The BUCK-EYE does not travel on its shape-
but its shape helps to make it the best Ten
Cent Cigar sold today.

The car was starting to cross the
bridge. It suddenly halted iu thc traffic.
Almost on the instant came a crash ami
a cry. A dainty little brougham had
been crushed against another motor car
in tbe .jam and impatience ou the structure. One of its wheels had lost half
its spokes, that went like a parcel of
toeethpicks.
Garrison leaped out at once, and Dorothy followed iu alarm, ln the tide of
vehicles, blocked by the trilling accident, a hunelroil persons craned their
bonds to see whal line damage had been.
A small knot of persons quickly gathered about the damaged carriage,. Garrison hastened forward, intonl upon offering his services, should help in Ihe

had beon done, and that no one hud

1'lager to tie hastening onward, he

stepped once more inside, to be screen

CHAPTEE XX.
New Happenings
Still puzzled, unable to believe his
senses; Garrison made a second
quick search of the vicinity that
was rapidly being cleared and restored
to order by a couplo of efficient police
Officers, but without, avail.
Neither Dorothy nor the chauffeur
could be found.
One of thc officers ordered him to
move along with his car. There was
nothing else to be done.    Reluctantly,
aud not without feelings of annoyance

Dorothy stared at him in utter be

■.eyes dilated strangely.
"Vou—you are suro?" she said ia a
tone barely audible.
"Perfectly," said Garrison.
"And you never mentioned this before!"
"1 awaitod developments,"
"But—what did you think! Vou
might almost have thought, that Theodore hail stolon thom, and banded lliem
to me," sho said. "Especially after
the way I put them in your charge!"
"1 told you we have much to clear
between us," he said. "Haven't I the
right to know a little "
"But—how diel they come lo be
kheref" she interrupted, abruptly con
fronted by a phase of the facts which
alio had momentarily overlooked. "How
hi the world could my jewels have been
in that house uml also iu my bureau at
t*ic very same time?"
"Isn't it possible that Theodore borrowed thom, temporarily, and smuggled
them back when he came?"
The startled look was intensified in
her eyes as she met his gaze.
"Ilo must have done it. in sume such
way!'.' she said. "I thought al Ihe
time, when I ran iu to get them, they
were not exactly as 1 hail left them,

fear he'd steal them!''
"Why cpuldn't you have told me all

He felt her weaken and grow limp

"Tke—the evidence?" she repeated
faintly.    "What  kind—of  evidence?"
"Poison."
He waH watching her keenly.
She swayed, as if to faint onco more,
presently obliged lo climb to the driver's seat and take the wheel in hand.
The motor was running, slowly, to :i
rhythmic beat, lie speeded it up, threw
oil' the brake, put the gears iu the
"low," and slipped in the clutch. Over
the bridge in the halted procession of
traffic he steered his course—a mau bereft of his comrade and his driver and
with a motor-car thrust upon his charge.
Through the streets of New Vork he-
was Dually guiding the greal purring
creature of might, which in ordinary
circumstances would have filled his being with delight. Thorough master of
throttle, spark advance, and speed-lover,
he wceubl have asked nothing better

only at bis side.
He had never felt more utterly disconcerted in his lit... Where hael she

And whal should bc* .lone wilh tin'

A quick suspicion that the car had

Nevertheless it was always possible tbat
Dorothy had urged the driver to convey
her out of the crowd, nnd that, the driv-
er hael finally returned te, get his ear,
ami fouud it gone; but this, for many
reasons, seemed unlikely.
Dorothy had shown her fear in her

stand where be had hired it. in thi- morning, 'rhe chauffeur might, by chance,
appear uml claim his property. Uneasy,
witli tiie tiling thus loft upon his hands,
and quite unwilling to be "caught with
tlio goods," Garrison was swiftly grow
in*j more and more exasperated,
Hi- knew ho could not roll tlio ear
to tlio stanil and simply abandon it
there, for anyone so inclined to steal;
he objected to reporting it ''found'" in
this peculiar manner at any police head*
"Kindly drive iuto Twenty-sixth
•Street, out of this confusion," he answered. "I shall he glad to halt there
anil answer all requirements.''
He was so obviously a thorough
gentleman, and his manner was so calm
and dignified, that thc strange young
lady almost felt abashed at the charges
she had made.
Tlie jam was broken. Garrison ran
the car to the quieter side street, aud
the cab kept pace at his side.
Presently h'> baited, got down from
the seat and came to thc hansom, lifting
his hat. How thankful he was that no
policeman had overheard the young wo
man's cry, and followed, she might
never suspect.
"Permit me to introduce mynelf as a
victim of another man's wrongful intentions," he said. "[ hired this car this
morning uptown—in fact, in Times
Wfjuare, and was driven out to J-ong Island. Returning, we were halted on thc
bridge —and the chauffeur disappeared

self.
"1 feared at thc time it might be the
man was ;i thief, and \ am greatly relieved to find the nvrner of the car sn
promptly, If this nr any other explanation, before an officer, or any court,
will gratify you more, 1 shall be glad
to meet every demand you may make
upon my time.''
The young lady looked at him  with
Wildly blazing eyes.    .She believed him.i
she hardly knew why.   She had alighted
from the hansom.
"I've been driving up and down
Fifth Avenue all morning!" she Haid.
"I felt sure I could lind it that way. lt
isn't mine; It was only left in my
charge. 1 was afraid that something
might happen, I didn't, want, to have
it in tho first, place! I knew it would
cause me endless trouble. I don't know
what to do with it now."
"I should be gratified," said damson, "if you will state that, yon do not
consider me guilty of a theft so stupid
as this would appear.''
"I didn't think yon were the mnn,"
she answered. "A chauffeur my cousin
discharged undoubtedly stole it. Policemen are after him now, with the man
who runs the garage. They went to
Long Island City, or somewhere, to find
him, this morning. Perhaps he saw
tbem on the bridge."
She was regaining color. She was a
very fine-looking young woman, despite
the expression of worry on hor face.
She was looking Garrison over in a less
excited manner—and he kuew she held
no thought of guilt against him.
"Lot me suggest, that yon dismiss
your cab and permit me to take you at
onco to your garage." he said, adding
to the man on the box: * Gabby, how
much is your bill f''
"Five dollars," said the man, adding
substantially to his charge.
"Take ten and get. out!" said Garrison, handing him a  bill.
''Oh,   but   please ''    started    the
pretty young woman.
Garrison interrupted.

i modern American imbibes a liquid that
j beats any of these to a froth. Soft, sac-
! charine soda water, by right of quantity
i rather than quality, places all other
I beverages of the past or present in the
infant class of popularity.
More than one million ice-cream sodas
are sold in Xew Vork City every day of
j the year.   This means that approximate-
i ly  thirty  sodas  a  second  are  trickling
down  the  throats  of thirsty  metropolitans in a steady stream for ten hourfl—
I the average working day.    One-third of
(these   are   chocolate,   strawberry,   pine-
' apple, und vanilla running close behind
as favorite flavors.
Hm< large department store alone
daily dispenses fourteen thousand glass
es of the concoction; a chain of twenty
stores in the city does a business of
two hundred thousand sodas during a
ton-hour period, while the penny-a glass
fountains on the lower East Side nre
just as busy, if not busier, ia supplying
the demands of their clamorous patrons,
lt takes but a single glance at these
figures to disclose the fact that the
great American public, is lashed fast tn
a soda-fountain. All conditions of men
women, and children, and nil ages, from
babyhood to baldness, are flocking tn
the fountains which, within the last ten
years, have sprung up like mushrooms
all over the country. A few years ago
a snda-fountain open the year round
was almost unheard of; they shut down
in October and started again in May.:

cherry nf congeniality has been swamped in a sea of syrup, for today the slogan of Undo Sam'N subjects is "Give
us- this day our daily soda!"
They usually <ret 'it, too, as the delicious but democratic drink is within
the pocketbook of all. Anywhere from] forts
one to thirty cents purchases a glass of
ice-cream soda-water in New Vork City.
The price all deqends upon the situation
of the fountain.
Tn tlie crowded districts of the lower
East Side, you can get a good imitation of the' article fnr Ihe munificent
sum of one cent, while at some of the
ice-cream palaces on Fifth Avenue your
check will cost you thirty times that
amount. But whether in the slums or
on the aristocratic avenues, the frothy,
frivolous confection is the one best
bibulous bet uf the masses as well ns
the classes.
Tt has been said that the quickest
way to solve the secret of any situation
is to turn to the feminine end of it.
Well, to the women we must go for the
source  of soda's popularity.
While all Americans arc more or less
addicted to the soda-water craze, girls
of between fifteen to thirty are the most
reckless imbibers of the beverage. Thc
an old-timer. Few of those who daily
drink in thc delights of the concoction
are aware that as long ago as seventy-
seven years it was on the market. Not
iu very Urge quantities, to be Mire, fnr
old John Matthews, its inventor, was a
poor man in those far off days, and his
invention was looked at askance by
a   suspicious  public
On the very spot where today in one
id' the world's largest manufactories of
soda-fountains, syrups, and all the other
items that go tn make up a single glas>-
of soda, John Matthews first conducted
his experiment and carried it to its
j-re-eiit   success.
In a little -back on Kasl Twenty-
Sixth Street, down by the Fast I.iv.-r,
I here lived in 1832 the man who has
since made soda famous. He was poor,
Iiut a hard worker with au inventive
mind.
One day his many experiments with a
copper kettle over au iron stove were
rewarded with success. He had, brewed
a dunk never before tasted by human
lips. Then the question arose bow to
make the public accept his invent ion,
for he could not afford the expense of
putting it upon the market.
John Matthews had a wife who was
as resourceful  as himself.    She to!uii-
t.cered to set up a small stand around
the   corner   from   their   shack   and   sell
the   liquid   her   husband's   genius   had
turned out.    It took some time fnr the
1 little stand to be built, for the two had
j tn  erect   it  all   with   their  own   hands.
I When   it   was completed  a   huge  kettle
full of the fluid wa> brewed, and on one
memorable day Mrs. .Matthews took her
*!;u.d behind th inter and drew from
'an impoverished fountain tho v
■ gins-,   nt    sodn water   ever   sold   to   It
, public.
Success was  not   a  matter of inspira
statesmanship is the intelligent anticipation of events. The sum of commerce
is thc intelligent anticipation of wauls.
"These are the goods we make. If
you like them will he glad tu sell theft;
to you, If ynu don't like them, I'm
snrry. Gondday." That is the proper
attitude of him who imagines that trade
travels in cast iron ruts.
*• I bope you 'II like the^e goods, but
if ynu don't, and will tell me how yu-i
would like them made up. we will irv in
inert yuur requirements." That is the

The only disadvantage lies in the gathering of the garment about the waist and the consequent fullness about the

Embroidered Ecru Tussor Gown
French serge. The coU>r is white and the trimming consists
of the merest thread of pastel messaline plaid outlining the
"buttonholes and rimming tlie round neck and the bands of the
short kimonn sleeves. The skirt is of the semi-plaited order;
tbe blouse of the new peasant type with seamless sleeves.
The fastening is down one side of the front of the blouse
and half-way down the side of the skirt. The seam joining
the skirt and blouse in one-piece effect is concealed beneath
a belt of the material Ornamented with rows of machine
stitching between the plaid-piped edges. With the dress were
furnished three hells: one of red suede, one'of white dressed
kid and oue of patent leather, A guimpe of tucked batiste
aud baby Irish luce completed the garment.
A model cut on similar lines is of lavender linen of basket
weave. The round neck ami kimonn sleeves are linished with
shaped bauds of the material, the lower edge of the neck baud
and the upper one of the sleeves being denned by a two-inch
plaiting of line linen edged witli a narrow insertion of pale
yellow Valenciennes lace. The buttons are of white pearl
and the belt of wistaria suede clasped by au ornamental
pearl buckle.   The skirt is a box-plaited model.
Very interesting blouses are included in this same trousseau. One of these is made of the finest lisle crepon cloth in
white. The garment has Gibson shoulders and a sleeve' of
elbow length. The neck is in Dutch outline and is bordered
■by a strip of pale blue batiste showing Persian iigures stamped in pale amber colors.
Partly concealing the Persian batiste is the yoke proper
of Valenciennes galloon. The sleeves are linished with a narrow strip of the figured material surmounted with a lace
band.   The model is as pretty as it is novel.
lt was noticed that the skirts made for June brides incline
to the uarorw styles originated by M. Paul 1'oiret for fashion*
able Parisian ties during the late winter and adapted by leading dressmakers for Americans during the spring and summer
seasons. In such materials as serge, ramie linens and some of
tbe voiles, the front panel and the foot border are cut in oue
piece and the fullness of the sides gathered or plaited beneath
that border.
Not a few of the models show the plaits flatly stitched
from wnist to the top of the foot baud, the latter measuring
anywhere from a yard and a quarter to two yards about the
lower edge. Lt may be remarked, in passing, that this style
of skirt is likely to be in considerable evidence in the early
fall models.
Une of the features ol' the present season is the little tunic
of voile, marquisette or uhiffon cloth made tor wear over the
gown of foulard, of tail'eta, ami, above all, over the frock
of lingerie persuasion. Several of these little garments ure
included in the trousseaux of tlie up-to-date bride. She may
wear them witII her tea gOWtl of soft satin or mull 01' with her
elaborate dinner gowu.
As a rule ih»' color employed is black, elaborated with Iridescent embroideries, soutache application or insertions of
Chant illy luce. Not a few of them are quite devoid of orna
men tut ion save for Ihe narrow border fringe of crystals or
jet. The necks are round or V; and the sleeves short and ,'i
narrow kimona effect.
The summer negligees are extremely lovely, whether foi
the bride or the bride's sisters, cousins or minis. Among the
latest C0Ucelts in negligee fabrics is that which employs striped cotton voiles in delicate colorings. The trimmings are
Valenciennes and' i'luny laces and touches of hand embroider*
ies. Some of the prettiest are embellished with baby Irish
lace.
The styles include a sort of modified Knipire. where the
collarless yoke and thc short sleeves are out in oue piece and
trimmed iu various ways according to the nature of the fabric
and the colorings. The sun plaited negligee is also seen again,
usually wilh a deep yoke that gives the garment a semi-fitted
effect.'
The Russian type is expressed in negligees of both long.
and short variety aud Ihe allover embroidery flounces and
lnce Insertions are favorite materials for this variety. Persian patterns are seen in cotton and silk crepes; sometimes
they are in use for the border bands of plain crepes or satins
The lingerie models of the season disclose a few new
features thai are worth remarking. Kor instance, one of the
most recent of corset covers is made ou the lines of au abbreviated chemise. It slips over the head and in this way does
not, mar thi- beauty of the outer lingerie blouse by the revelation of the corset-cover buttons; and the Une of trimming
that is n feature of corset covers generally, is not interrupted
nor broken  by the opening of the material down the front.
The only disadvantage lies in the gathering of the garment about the waist and the consequent fullness about the
hips. This has been overcome to a certain degree by confining
the fullness beneath a shaped hip piece or peplum, which is
clashed from the hem part way up the center front. The
garment, laps sufficiently when on to conceal the semi-opening.
Madeira embroideries, Valenciennes, (,'luny, Mechlin aud baby
Irish laces are the fashionable lingerie garnitures.

REFLECTIONS ON LONG LIFE
rTlHERE is no question that man floes not live so long as in
_1_ a normal condition of things he ought to do. God
praised Solomon because he asked for wisdom instead of
long life. Why so? Because wisdom—that is to say, the
strict observance of the natural laws—entails, of itself, long
life. Koger Bacon believed that man could live a thousand
vears if he onlv knew how to economize his provision of vital ,
force. The celebrated physiologist, Floureus, also deduced i gathering was a popular member of

When cut the tree had already occupied
itself i'or something over one hundred
years iu its efforts to repair this injury,
its method being the ingrowing of the
new (issue from each margin of the
great black wound. When the tree was
cut the records of three other hies were
revealed.
Briefly summarized, the history of
this is about as follows: lt began its
existence during the second century before the Christian era. During the
lirst year of our era it was about four
feet iu diameter about, the base. When
a little over live hundred vears old,
about the year A.D. 245, there occurred
a burning on its trunk three feet wide.
One hundred and live years were eon
sinned in covering this wound with new
tissue. Kor something like 1,100 years
no further  injuries were  registered.
When, iu A.D. H4I, the tree had attained the age of 1,712 years there came
a second big burn—in two long grooves,
one aud two feet wide, respectively.
Each  had   its own  system of repair.
Then came IHO years of growth, in-

Thc height of the fly season

nusiance may, to a certain extent, be minimized by the use
ot screens. Still this does not get
to thc root of the matter. People
are only beginning to realize
what a dangerous foe to humanity the common household
fly is, the spread of many infectious diseases having been
traced back to this pest. The
great breeding place for these
insects is in the piles of refuse
in tho back yards and alleys of

Hosmer, B. C, July 27th, 1910.
The entire holdings of
Pacific Coal Mine Co., Ltd., on
Vancouver Island, have been
purchased by the C. P. It. for
$4,000,000. John Arbuthhot,
president of the company, is
now en route to Montreal to
complete the deal. The option
upon the company's holdings
was taken some few months
ago shortly after the announcement of purchase of Dunsmuir
interests by tbe C. N, It.
The deal is an important one
in that it relieves the C. P. R.
of dependence upon mines controlled by the Canadian Northern, which hitherto have supplied coal for its Pacific coast
steamers and for railway operation on Vancouver Island.
The Pacilic eoulminingcompuny
has beon in existence about two
years and shipped the first coal
a little over a year ago. The
coal is similar in character to
that mined from the Dunsmuir
collieries and i.s believed to be a
portion of the same lead as that
upon which the hitters Extension workings are situe.ted. It
lies within easy reach of tide
water, about twelve miles from
Boat harbor and a like distance
from Nanaimo. A railway has
been built and is in operation
between Pit Head and the dock.
The acquistion of Dunsmuir
interests by William McKenzie
was regarded as a strategic
move of great importance, giving him the whip hand over
coast wise shipping and land
transportation upon the coast.
u,rumor has circulated frequently that the C. P. lt. was endeavouring to gain control of the
Western Feul company's interests at Nanaimo, but in the
meantime their coal expertfrom
Trail hus.been upon the scene
investigating the extent of newer company's workings with
tho result that the report was
favorable.
The deal is said to include all
the holdings of tho Pacific Coal
Mines company. Mr. Arbuth-
not, who was formerly mayor
of Winnipeg, has had associated
with him E. Metchuer and a
syndicate of Winnipeggers.
