Fernie is already a second Newcastle.
but'it" may become a second Butte,
Swansea, or Pittsburg, if the citizens
and others awaken to the great possibilities for what is now the leading city
between the grass lauds and the sail
breeze country on tlio western fringe
of this great Dominion ol Laurier's. In
a short time Fernie can bo mado the
second city of Canada west of Winnipeg, but in order to do it we must get a
move on and get everything we go
after, without regard to price. A nickel
policy is out of placo in a community
with millions hovering round it.1
Fernie should control the trade of the
Flathead, even if it takes $;)0,000 to get
a road in there.
Fernie should get the zinc smelter
now talked of for Frank, Our coal for
smelting purposes is superior to the
Frank in tide. , We have the best sits.-,
for smelters iu 13. C, but they will not
walk in here. We must go after them
and go it strong. No weak dallying
will do. Within a short time the output of zinc ore in B C. will he worth
millions every year. If we can do the
smelting in Fernie it means gieater
prosperity for us all.
Fernie should help tho lumber industry in every.vvay possible. Next te
coal at present it is the greatest source
of income we have.
A board of trade is of great assistance
in the uphuilding:of a city/but the one
in Fernie needs an electric shock. Ai
present it is so dead that it miu'ht ai-
vvell be sent down to Macleod for burial.
Fernie can always be a coal town. A
live board of trade can help to make it
one of the richest cities in the Greal
West. Look at Calgary how it has
forged ahead because its citizens were
full of public spirit and reached out foi
everything that would help their city.

Corliss engine will be used with a 75
horsepower for the planing department. The company aim to have
complete equipment, including machine and blacksmith shops and
electric light plant For fire protection they have a 1,000 gallon pump,
with a sprinkling system'that will be
attached to pipes running through
the yards.
The lumber to be sawn will be
mainly cedar, spruce and taniarac,
and the principal market will be in
the Northwest territories. In connection with another mill now in
operation the company already maintain a general sales oflico in Winnipeg. The company has twenty acres
of ground at their mill site just across
the Elk, and 100 men are now riuild-
ing the mill and digging a canal 10
feet deep and HO feet wide in order to
draw the necessary water supply
from the river. The old mill on the
site is cutting lumber for the .'.construction of the new. It will be dismantled when this work is finished."
The company will probably erect 50
cottages for the housing of their married employees. Two hundred men
will bo employed when the saws
commence to buzz, This will mean
to Fernie much more than sjine
citizens realize. It means a boom in
the spring which will not- be all logs.

If the Honey Grove Siernal is not
biased because Teddy once broke
bread with an Ethiopian, its remarks
about the rou^h-riding president ol
the United States would indicate that
he has more paternal dignity than
wild-horse sense.   The Signal says:
"A Boston paper printed a, story
about the children oi President
Roosevelt chasing a turkey over the
White House grounds and pulling
out its feathers. The president at
once issued at, edict that the offending newspaper should be deprived of
all facilities for information in the
various departments. This is Roose-
veltitm of the true typo and the
country will see much of it for the
next four years. The time may come
when those who offend the Great I
Am will not be allowed to lick a
postage stamp, wear government
socks or observe national thanksgiving day."

Genius is sometimes found in surprising places. Some of the married

thought out a scheme which gives
evidence of greater ingenuity than

The wily benedicts, when they saw
summer fall off the lap of winter, entered into a conspiracy with a local
merchant to put on bargain sales between tlio* hours ot 5 and 7 a. ra.
During these hours stoves, hat pins,
needles, cradles, patent medicines,
etc., can be bought at a discount of
ten per cent, and a stranger in Cranbrook who is forced to get out of bed
early, comes to the quick conclusion
that nil the ladies of the city are
Catholics and never neglect high
mass Ono of the jubilant husbands
of Pernio's sister city informed our
rciiorter that since tlie scheme was
put into force no Cranbrook husband
hfid started a morning fire. The
whole scheme is a villainous plot

Talking about the best way to
educate the masses against tapping
the flowing bowl too strongly, the
Hamilton Herald has the following
wise remarks:
" The cause ot temperance—or, to
put it more accurately, total abstinence—is sure to be strengthened by
the recent action of a great English
insurance company. Up to the present, the insurance companies in
Britain, and indeed" most companies
throughout the world, have not discriminated in the matter of rates
against the moderate drinker and in
favor of the total abstainer. In fact,
it used to be considered that the moderate drinker was a better risk than
the man who totally abstained from
alcoholic stimulants. But the decision of this English company is
likely to cause a general change in
insurance rating, for it is based upon
carefully prepared and elaborate
statistics representing several years
of investigation. These statistics go
to prove that the average life of the
total abstainer is much longer than
the average life of the moderate
drinker. And so, having arrived at
this important piece of knowledge in
a scientific way, the company has
decided to insure the lives of. total
abstainers at lower premium rates
than those charged to persons who
indulge even moderately

,rNo doubt other companies will
follow suit as a matter of business,
and then there will be established a
permanent and powerful incentive to
total abstinence. More than that, the
fact having been scientifically demonstrated that booze, even when
taken in moderate quantities tends to
shorten life, there can be no further
excuse for the plea that regular
though moderate drinking is good
for the health. Those who deliberately go in for "a short lilc and a
merry one" will not be affected, but
this class is not, after nil, very numerous.
"The evil of intemperance can be
put down by business measures lar
more effectively than by legislative
enactments. When all insurance
companies discriminate in favor of
total abstinence, when railway and
steamboat companies employ only
total abstainers, when total abstinence becomes a necessary condition
of employment in any occupation Involving danger to life and property,
will be a remarkable decline in the
drinking habit.*'
Events Ho Was Proud of.
Some entertaining reminiscences ot
John Thomas Smith, author of the
"Book for a Rainy Day" (17(.,i. 1883)
arc recalled by "T. P." Smidi had

album he wrote that he could boast
of seven events, some ot which great
men would be proud of. Hero are
six of the seven events:

The Canadian Rank of Commerce is
still engaged in the task of covering the
Dominion ot Canada with a network of
offices, and it has recently announced
that.two more have been opened, one at
Lloydminster in Saskatchewan, and the
other at Nanton, Alberta, both these
districts being in the North-West Territories. These two new offices will bring
the number of offices to just three over
the hundred, the bulk of the branches
being iu the province of Ontario, where
the bank originally conducted most of
its business. The " Financial Times"
adds, "by its recent acquisition of the
Halifax Banking Company, the bank,
howeAer, obtained strong representation
in the maritime province, whilst the
absorption of the Bank of British Columbia gave it a considerable number
of branches to Manitoba and the North-
West Territories. The widespread
character of ils business has also compelled it to open live branches in ihe
United States, and the acquisition 01
the Bank of British Columbia gave it a
well situated office in London."
During the year ending November
t,o the net profits of the bank were
$1,124,973.66. The bank has over
52 millions of dollars on deposit bearing
interest, and over 18 millions of dollars
on deposit that does not bear interest.

To Reform Criminals.
At a faith cure convention in the
east last week a woman testified that
she recently woke in the dead of nighl
to find a burglar in her room. She
did not scream, but immediately began
to give him treatment by prayer. She
prayed that he might be reformed.
" Suddenly," she says, "the man looked
at 111c nnd left the room. He did not
take anything with hit)). The next
day he returned and begged my pardon for breaking into my house. 1
prayed with him, and today lie is nn
honest man with a responsible position
in a bank."

the factories until the end of November

until February or March. The probable output from Berlin alone this season
cannot be less than 8,000,000 pounds.
With a jump of 55c. per 100 lbs., in less

what benefit the shortage in foreign
