R.  0. Jennings  Would  Like to Sea  It
Located   Right   at   Marysville
From the Herald—
R. O. Jennings, one of tbe best posted
men in South Bast Kootenay on roads
and trails, ia anjfious to see tlte new
bridge pot in over tbe St. Marys river.
In a talk witb The Herald man last week
he offered a new suggestion as tq its lo
cation tbat may prove of value. He
pointed out tbat the best place for it was
right at Maryaville, for tbe reason that
it would give the people on Ferry creek
above Old Town an opportunity to build
a abort road through tbe draw direct
from Marysville to the high bench on
upper Perry creek, and thus give tbem a
chance to get in machinery by a direct
route and much closer railway facilities-
It would also permit of a road being
built along the benali opposite from
Marysville down across Perry preek and
connecting with tbe Cranbrook road at
six mile, making a direct route from
Maryaville to Craubr ok, which would
be still improved by the proposed Perry
creek cut off up the draw back of the St.
Eugene hospital. Another advantage
claimed by Mr. Jpnnings is tbe lact tbat
it would give all those owning properly
across and below Hell Roaring creek on
tbe west side of St. Marys river an opportunity to reach a railway stttion at
Marysville, a saving of 15 to 18 miles. ''I
haye given this matter a great deal of
study aud am satisfied tbat it is tbe best
location for all concerned," said Mr.
Mr. Elwell of Klmberley, wbo is also
interested in Perry creek properties,
concurred iu the opinion expressed by-
Mr. Jennings, saying tbat such a location
would meet with the wishes of all the
people in that section.
James Ryan, who has taken a great
deal of interest in this road, is of the
opinion that tbe route suggested by Mr
Jennings is not a practical one He
says a crossing cannot be made at Perry
creek except at a great deal of expense,
and that to secure a bridge at Marysville it would be necessary to build
across a long atretch of low land on tbe
opposite side of the river. He thinks
the bridge should be located further
down tbe river. He bas given tbe question a great deal of study and thinks the
route suggested would not answer tbe

Crandrook's Well   Known
Paper Four Years Old
Of  Cranbrook's  growth from 1898, and
Tells  of It's  Future
from the Cranbrook Herald.
With thia issue oi Tbe Herald the
paper closes its fourth year. To the
writer, who penned tbe art-cles for the
first issue, and bas been connected with
the paper since lhat time, it hardly
seems possible tlftt it was so long ago
And wbat a change has taken place in
Cranbrook! Four years ago tli^re were
only four or five buildings in the tov.n
Those included tbe Cranbrook hotel,
presided over then as now hy tbe popu
lar landlord, James Ryan'the East Koot
enay hotel, then owned by Mrs. Dona
hue; G. H. Milliard's blacksmith shop,
and the C. P. R. construction sheds
The postoffice block was under headway
and also the building now occupied by
E.J. Peltier. Tbe reat of the town was
aeries of lot stakes, and the residential
portion, no*v covered with beautiful
homes, was a wilderness of timber, witti*
out a street defined nor a -shack raised
Among the pioneers of the town who
are still bere are James Ryan, R. E.
Beattie, A I.eitch, O. H. Miner, John
Hutchison, L- B VanDecar, Mrs. Donahue and Angus Morrison. They had
faith in the town at its inception, and
they staid with it, growing in faith, confidence and prosperity, up to the present
time. In tbose days tbere was no post:
office, no telegraph, no railroad, in fact
notbiug but hope and tbe best location
for a growing city in all of South East
Kootenay The Herald, in its first issue, gave its reasons why Cranbrook
should be a prosperous town. It said
then that the town had the advaniage of
location, and must necessarily profit by
the growth ol the district; it said that
Cranbrook must by force of circumstances become tbe miniug, railroad and
commercial center of South East Koote
nay; it said that Cranbrook must be a
favorite residential town owing to its
convenience to all parta of tbe district
and the beauty of site .site. And bow
these prophesies have been verified!
How the hopes of tbe early settlets have
been fulfilled! Month after month, and
year after year, one improvement followed another, uiuii Cranbrook bas become in name and in fact tbe natural
business ceuter of a thriving <1 strict,
with its advantages conceded by all. and
its importance recognized by every com*
mumty. It is now a town that every
resident may well feel proud to call bis
home, aud one that elicits from all visitors only words of praise and bright
predictions for the future.
Such a town baa "Beautiful Cranbrook"
b'corue in four years, and today her
growth and prosperity is bated upon a
foundation as solid as the rock of Qib-
aralier, and stands as a slight evidence
of what her growth will be in four years
As to Tbe Herald, Pour years ago it
was started by H. T. Brown and tbe
present proprietor. Mr. Brown has
since gone to his long reward, and right
here the writer would say that the world
was better lor Ilmace Jjrown living in
it, tor he was a man 111 heart and mind,
aud one whom It was an honor to call
friend. The Herald was printed on a
Washington hand press, and the first
few months there was not enough business to offer much encouragement to
journalistic enterprise. But its proprietors bad confidence iu the future of
Cranbrook, and the results abow that
confidence was not misplaced. Today
Tbe Herald has the best equipped steam
printing plant in Eisi Kootenay, and in
all of Biitish Columbia tbere are only a
few that are superior to it. file paper
is printed In,its own building, one that
is modern in every respect, and only
men of long experience in city work are
employed. Its business has extended
until The Herald impi'm may be found
on job work from Frauk, ->11a , to Kootenay Landing The proprietor bas spent
large sums ol money to give to Cran-
brook an up to-date printing office, and
the people uf this town and the district
at large show their appreciation ut tbe
lact by a very liberal patronage.
As 10 wbat The Herald* has done for
Cranbrook or the district, that Is for the
people to ray. So far as the proprietoi
is concerned, he haa tried to do h Is duty
by his town and bis district, {snowing
tbat what was good for any portion nt
the district was good for lhe district as a
.yvhole. He lias kept the paper clear of
pcttv prejudices and neighborhood ani
mosities. and no man has ever used Tbe
Herald columns to malign any community or give vent to personal feelings
against any man. The editor has made
enemies, and he is glad 0/ it, for most of
tbem have taken offense because they
could not use him as a tool. There are
those who have differed with him at
times on a question of policy or expedience. He bas respected tbeir opin
ions, and trusts that they have extended
the same couitcsy to him. But right
here he desires to say that Cranbrook
and tbe district of South East Kootenay
baye a host of big hearted, intelligent,
energetic people, wbo have placed The
Herald and its editor under obligations
time without number by their uniform
good treatment.
As to the future Tbe Herald has no
fears fcr Cranbrook or South East Koot-
ehay. It believes in bo h, and knows
that the growth and development of the
past four years is but a start for the unbounded prosperity that is to follow.
Ladies and gentlemen, bere is to Beaut-
iful Cranbrook and Soutb East Koote
nay. May they ever prosper is the devout wish of Tbe Herald editor.
General Mctbucn and four guns have been
captured by General Dctarcy.
The text of Lord Kitcbener'adlspatch
announcing the capture of General
Methuen Is as follow:
"Pretoria, Saturday, March 8 —"I
greatly ie<:ret to have to send you bad
news of M 'thuen. He was moving with
nine hundred mounted men, under
Major Paris, and three hundred Infantry with four guns and a pom pom,
from Wynburg to Llchtenbnrg, and was
10 meet Grenftel with 1 300 mounted
at Kovlraincs Fonteln to-day. Yesterday morning early he was attracted by
Delarey's force between Twebosch and
Palmletknill. Tne Boers charged ou
three sides.
"Five hundred and fifty men have
come In at M.rlbogs and Ktaalpan.
They were pursued by the Boers four
miles from tbe scene 0- action. Tbey
report that M-thuen and Paris, with
the guns, baggage, etc., were captured
by tbe Boen,. Methuen, when last
seen was a prisoner I have no details
of the casualties, and suggest delaying
publication till I can send definite
newa. I think tbla audden revival of
activity on the part of Delarey is to
draw off the troops pursuing DeWet."
In a second dispatch, dated Sunday,
March 9, Lord Kitchener says:—With
the remainder of the men. He reports
that the column was moving In two
names. One. with tbe ox-wagons, left
T"chosen at 3 a. m. The other, with
the mule wagons, started an hour later.
Just before dawn the Boera attacked.
Before reinforcements could reach
them, the rear guard broke. In tbe
meantime a large number of Boera galloped np on both flacks. Theae at first
were checked by the flank parties, but
the panic and stampede of the mules
had begun and all the mule wagona,
with a terrible mixture of mounted men
rushed past the ox-wagons, and all efforts to check them were unavailing,
"Major Parts collected forty men and
occupied a position a mile In front of
the ox-wagons, which were then halted.
After a gallant, but useless defence, the
enemy rushed Into the ox-wagona aod
Methuen waa wounded In the thigh,
Paria, being aurronnded, surrendered
at 10 a. m. tyethuen Is still in the B;er
General Methuen waa wounded In the
thigh. Three British officers and 33
men were killed. Five Bri.ish officers
and 72 men were wounded. One Ilrit-
lab officer and 200 men are missing. Tbe
fight occurred before dawn March 7,
between Wynburg and Lltcbenburg in
tbe western Transvaal, The British
force numbered 1,200 men. Tbe Boers
captured all the British baggage. Gen.
Methuen is retained aa prisoner.—Winnipeg Free Press.
A Town  that has  Earned
the Name.
A   UOM-E    FOR     THE   WORKING     MEN
TJiw   I'ufuro   ot   the     smelter    City    of
South   East   Kootcnny   is  an
Assure.)   Fact.
Will Lower Mining Expenses.
Another ore shed, 20x38, Is to be built
at Trout lake, the drat one now belug
filled with Silver Cut and Nettie L. ore.
J he C. P. R. have assured Lardeau
mine owners tbat they will be ready to
accept freight over tbe new A. & K.
branch by May 1st. It ip the intention
of the company to plape a steamer on
the lake, so that Trout lake will be a
terminal point for tbe district for this
season at any rate. Tbis only leaves
Ferguson four miles from transportation, and all the mines up here have a
downhill pull to that point. It will be
possible to leave bere In the morning
aud arrive in Kelson in the afternoon.
Old time Lardeaultes can scarcely
realize tbat at last we are to be placed
to touch with smelting and wholesale
centres. Tbe cost of getting In supplies
will bo greatly lessened; and the introduction of mining machinery will be
made popalble for several properties
which are to-day handicapped on that
account. The ore output for tbis year
will run well into 82,000,000, and with
>he new conditions now in sight the
J/i.deau should bum this season, ft
ever tbere wao a lime to expect activity
this year should present it to us. Hav
Ing made such progress in the past In
face of so many seemingly unsurmount-
able d fll utiles surely we cau allow for
a lower priced metal matket and still
secure first piece as a white metal pre-
producing camp. Tbe present year will
witness many changes for the better iu
the Lardeau. —Lardeau Iv-gle.
The Windermere .Mail Route.
From tbe Herald—
Tbe people of Windermere have asked
the assistance of Cranbrook in haying
tbe mail route south from Windermere
re-established aud lhe terminus changed
from Fort Steele to Cranbroojc for tbe
purpose of giving direct communication
with this town. The reason assigned for
this move is the fact that Cranbrook is
tbe recognized commercial and banking
center of tbe district, aud the cutting off
of tbis mail route has worked a great
hardship upon the people io tbe Win
dermerc country.
The Sullivan Group Mining company
bave been holding a meeting in Spokane
this week wltb special referer.ee to tbe
smeller now being erected at ibis
Until this meeting Is over the main
work on the constrnction has been stopped so that seme matters of policy may
be adjusted.
At aoon as tbis Is dons a very much
larger force of men will be put to woik
and the construction will be pushed
wltb far more vigor than heretofore.
Within a few days a large number of
mechanics of all kinds will be at work,
laying brick, adjusting corrugated iron,
Installing machinery and doing a hundred and one things that will have to
be done to complete the work.
As March gives place to April Marysville will be a busy booming hive
of Industry. Many store*; and places of
business will open up and our business
streets will bave a more townlike air.
A little later, say about May the first,
a great number of prospectors will
make onr town their outfitting point
before startirg on their summers work
among the mountains of the St. Marys
La:er still abcut the beglnlng of June
Marysville will bave reached ibe
permanent stage, that Is, by tbat time
the smelter will bave been blown in
and the permanent force of smelter
workmen, to operate the plant, will
bave arrhed. The advent of tbis
will mean the arrival of families and
consequently the building up of homes
and as a natural sequence tbe building
of churches, schools and other public
buildings which will tend to make
Marysville tbe borne town which we
bave always predicted sbe would be. u
We have heard It said, time and time
again, that a smelter town la not a
pleasant place in which to live. Marysville Is "the exception In which proves
tbe rule." Of all the beautiful situations in East Kootenay, and tbe district
is full of tbem. Marysville Is by far the
most attractive. The magnlflclent valley
of the St. Marys below tbe townslte and
the view up and down the river and tbe
falls are sights for artists to dream of.
To the north ot the Main street the
parklike, timber dotted benches will
make ideal residential sites. Along the
banks of Mark Creek many beautiful
spots can be found where homes will be
established and to the east, on what is
known as 37 acre tract, good lots can
be had at a very reasonable price.
The smelter buildings are so situated
so the smoke wUl blow up and down tbe
river and thus tbe town will not have
tbe disadvantage of being envelope In
smelter fumes which Is the draw back
of so many smelter towns. Not only Is
Marysville most favcrably situated,
from a home town point of view, but as
a business centre she will bp beard
from. Situated as sbe Is as the only
polnt from which the prospector can
start for the St, Marys country she will
of necessity be tbe base of supplies for
tbat district as also for the districts
lying adjacent to the North Star and
Sullivan' bills. She will also be the
market town for the ranchers of the
St. Marys prairie country, Cherry Creek
and tbe country lying between tbe St.
Marys and the Kootenay. All of these
circumstaLces will tend to build up a
prosperous town and a prosperous community.
When the townslte of Marysville was
put on the market last fall those who
placed the townsiie on the market knew
wbat was going to happen and told the
people so, tbat what were believed is
evidenced by the fact tbat those who
bave bought lots in tbe town, tbat tbose
wbo have engaged in business In the
town are men of experience In the west
and men who bave made a success of
bufalne&s in the west.
Wbat ibe owners of ibe Marysville
townslte said last fall tbey still say.
Marysvtll*: will be a thriving town with
a smelter, a re£uery and later one with
lead works of various kinds. Marysville will be a pay roll town, a working
man's town and consi quern ly a good
town.    Keep your eye ou Marysville.

new gossip, and. while realizing thai it
must ho exaggerated, there was enough
truth to make me anxious about my
old pni'd's happiness, I haled to believe the tales, and yet I found many
others hinting that the young wife
was nut playing a straight game with

Is one of the meanest on earth to meddle with. It Is none of yum- business
even if you are a brother, and yet you
feel that It Is and want to do something. I wouldn't have hnd old Jim

By anil hy a passenger engineer
named "•'razor came to live at the Hill,
lie was a man uf 28, good looking,
good company and free handed. lie
knew Jim well, and he soon got acquainted with the wife. I threw myself iu I'razer's way one day and told

that he had adopted the latter course.

Wo were Just lenvlua our western

It. And yet 1 came to know that the
telegram told him that his wife and
Frazer were eloping together nnd had
tickets for tbo day express bound

mo, aud I did not give the message a

nerves of steel to con a message like

40.0 degrees, but there are periods during the rains when the diurnal range
of temperature does not exceed *J degrees, and. unless there Is wind, ventilation is practically stopped because
the outer air and lhat in tho buildings
nre reduced to nearly one temperature.
With (he thermometer at 82 to m degrees, and the air heavily charged with

II. e Ton Silo to Coat 9S1S.
\V. II. Jenkins of New York in a communication to Hoard's Dairyman describes a silo which is of low price and
has given good satisfaction for many
years.   He says:
The stave silo may be cheaply built
and may be the best oue to build where
econoni*" In expenditure Is the main
consideration, but there are some who
will wish to invest more anil get a better silo. The one shown In the illusti'a
llun Is one of the best I have seen. If,
building the silo ii good concrete foundation was first made of stone and cement and is eight feet square, and each
square or augle Is eight feet, making
tbe circumference sixty-four feet.  It Is
twenty-four feel high, and the capacity
Is about 125 tons uf ensilage, und lhe
cost, ns It was built uf the best lumber,
was *f215.
The frame is made of girts, as shown
In the Illustration. It Is hoarded up
and down Inside of the girts with
matched pluc. then It Is sheeted on Hie
outside, on which Is a layer of building
paper, then hoarded on the outside over
tin* paper with matched pine. This
makes the silo about frostproof, because nf the dead air space, and Is so
tight the ensilage keeps almost perfect.
This silo has given ils owner the very
best satisfaction, and one can hardly
make a mistake In building oue after
this plan.
The Profitable Dairy Cow.
The selection of the herd Is nil important. There are those who maintain that lhe ordinary cow, under proper conditions. Is lhe most profitable for
the beginner, hut lids theory la nut
borne out hy experience, says the Portland Ot'Cgoninn. It costs just ns much
tn feed a poor cow as a good one, und
there Is no getting away from the fact
that a good cow brings In more money
than a poor one. The main Idea Is to
make a good beginning, nnd this cannot be done with scrub stock. No
careful farmer will stock up with cows
which ho knows lhe first weighing and
Babcock tesls will show to be unprofitable. The object of the dairyman
should be to build up the herd with
cattle that are considered thoroughbreds und, having once selected it
breed, to adhere lo It. Scrub cows are
not given consideration In communities
where dairying Is a business.
Make the Co-.v  Comfortable.
A cow Is u great deal like a person.
Sho enjoys a good and comfortable
place to eat and sleep ns well as nny
man. Ho you think thut you would enjoy standing out on the south side of a
barbed wire fence to eat your meals
wheu the wind Is blowing at the rate
of forty or fifty miles nn hour from
the northwest in the winter? No, I
guess nol! Can you expect a cow to
make yuu money when served lu thnt
way? Then, summing up all of this,
the cow must be at perfect ease aud
comfortably situated and have kind
treatment iu order to give good results.
nndlmentorr Tent*.
We consider that a well balanced and
well shaped udder In the cow is largely
due to the way the rudimentary teals
ate placed on the sire. It they nre
crowded together, the result Is likely
to he narrow, pointed udders. If they
are well apart, of good size and well
forward of scrotum, tho effect will be

well shaped udders lu resulting heifers

Mold  In Duller Tuba.
To prevent luold It Is better not to
steam the tubs ut all. but sunk tbem in
a weak brine solution fur at least
twelve hours before using, says Creamery Journal. Parchment paper should
nlso be soaked at least twelve hours In
a strong brine before using. The steaming as usually done In many creameries
Is not sullii.'leut to destroy the mold
producing bacteria. It merely hastens
their growth.

This trouble Is caused by a congestive condition of one or more glnuds
of the udder. Bathe the udder leu mlii-

There has been a fair practical test
made of the paying qualities of tbe different breeds of cows kept by farmers
who supply cream to the creamery at
Westorvllle, O., fays H. Warren Phelps
In National Stockman. Tbe milk bas
been tested every month during tbe
past year by the Babcock test. Tbe
cows have not been fed for a test, but
comparisons have been made of the
mash receipts hy the farmers. The
books at the creamery show the actual
cash paid to each patron and the per
cent test of the milk. Persons who
kept cows of the Shorthorn breed
grades bad a test of 3M.. per cent, while
others who had good Jersey cows,
grades mostly, a few full bloods, tested
i\'o, 5 and 5*.i per cent butter fat. Yet
the Shorthorn cows bave yielded the
most money per head to the owners
generally, This was learned by farmers
comparing tbelr receipts of cash, nnd
tbe results hnve been a surprise lo the
owners of all of the cows. Generally
the Shorthorn und Shorthorn and Ayrshire or Devon grades have earned tbe
most money each month,
1 was very unwilling to admit that
such was the fact and wus surprised
when I wns Informed that It was an
established fact. Cows which tested
o!,4 per cent butler fat gave so much
less milk tbat lhe cows which gave
nenrly twice the quantity of milk, four
nnd Ave gallons per dny, ullhiuigh testing but S'/j per cent butler fat, brought
more dollars per luonlh for butter, so
tbat the profits have been from $1 to $2
per month per head moro from the
Shorthorn grade cow.
There are some lhat tbelr owners

owners nre going lo test tbis matter

The coal of Milk.
rrofessor Haeckcr of the Minnesota
experiment station has for nine years
been settling this question by actual
demonstration and recently gave a
summary of bis work. In brief It Is:
"Tbe first year 100 pounds of milk cost
60 cents, while the price of foodstuffs
wns about tbe same as now, and tbe
yield of tbe herd averaged very fair—
namely, 0,000 pounds of milk, or 180
pounds of butter fat. The second year
the cost was ahout tho same, 01 cents
per 100 pounds of milk, but lu tbe third
year It wns reduced 3S cents per 100
pounds, with tlie same cows and prices
and feedstuff's the same. Th" only difference was that they had calculated
the percentage of protein and selected
the foodstuffs where this was sold the
cheapest. He snid he did not care for
carbohydrates, fats, etc., as protein Is
the only essential part to look after.
The cows requite on nn average two
pounds of protelu per day."

We commence to fill silo as soon as
tbe most forward ears begin to pit or,
If flint com Is grown, as soon as it begins to glaze, says a New Jersey farmer In New England Homestead. The
bulk of the crop will be In tbe dough
state. If a large crop Is to be siloed,
we would commence earlier or tbe last
will be past Its best before tbe Job Id
finished. We cut iu half inch pieces,
using a six horsepower engine. I
would, however, recommend an eight
horsepower. It Is necessary to run
with about 100 pounds of steam wltb
tbe small engine, while the same work
will be done with tbe larger engine
wltb eighty pounds or less.
One man Is kept In the pit to keep It
level and well tramped, especially
around tbe outside and corners. It
requires three teams and eight men to
keep things going to tbe best advantage, one team and man, wltb the com
harvester to do tbe cutting; two men
to load in the field, two men and two
teams, wltb three wagons to haul, and
two men nt the cutter. With tbis force
we filled our pits iu less than seven
days last year. We bave two pits 14
by 14 by 21) feet deep, two 14 by 10 by
20 feet deep, holding about 250 tons of.
We bave never found It necessary to
use nny water on the corn while filling.
After the pits are full we let tbem settle about two days nnd then cover
witb any old trash on hand, such ns
chaff or cut straw. We have found
the best covering to be grass. We
usually have tbe seeoud crop of grass
about the time the pits are filled and
cover them wltb this ahout oue foot
deep, being careful to tramp well
around the edges aud corners. If chuff
or cut straw Is used, It Is best to use
enough water to thoroughly dampen It.
The water, with the steam from the
silage, will help to form a coat of mold
over the top In a few days, which
keeps out tbe air.
Clover nnd Coirpaa Ensilage.
Corn Is the king of the silo. It
makes good feed under many nud varied conditions, but not so with clover,
soy beans or cowpens, says D. Stratton
of Ohio In New England Homestead.
Their hollow stems curry a stock of air
with them that Is disastrous unless
thoroughly weighted nnd packed. This
may be done by mixing them with corn
lu filling silo, not having them tear the
top. I worked lu several loads of sec*
ond crop clover In this way. It made
very good feed, better than either
would hnve been without the other.
Bheep were willing to leave grain or almost anything to get nt It, while cows
and bones were very fond of It.

about it, walked to the house, entered by means of tho old familiar

A Humorous rreneiitnlion of   His Wlmlo-
slil|i's   aie.morn.ble   Trip Up  tile St.
Lawrence—Is It a Fish Story t
The whale which strayed up to
Montreal and stranded itself has
caused one of the small sensations of
the past week. Tho Montreal papers have not treated his whale-
ship's memorable trip up the St.
Lawrence with the respect and attention due such a distinguished visitor. In fact tho event has been
treated with such levity and indifference in Montreal that people in this
city, says the Toronto World, aro
wondering whether there was a
whale there or not. Tho impression
got abroad thut someone going homo
from one of the clubs had "got em,"
and that his vision was distorted by
the rushing waters of tho St. Lawrence, so that instead of serpents
and crawling things he sa*" a whalo.
Another improbability, in tlio view
of land lubbers, wus that tho whale
should strand itself nn a sandbar or
rock. It has always been understood that a well brought up whale
could seo where it wns going, and
tho stories we have read about
whales "swatting" boats and capsizing would-bo whale captors into
the sea, confirmed that impression.
Then again, the reports that a number of citizens had shot into Uro
forty-foot monster several scores of
bullets without appreciable damage
to its anatomy, was another puzzler, and wo wondered why a crew
of river men was not organized and
equipped with harpoons nnd other
whale-killing devices in order that
the Valuable bones and oil contained
in the carcass might bo secured in
the interests of commercel llut the
newspapers kept working off insinuating jokes about the whalo until the
truth of the story was completely
discounted. Ou Saturday, however,
news came to hand to the effect that
the whalo had got oat of dry dock,
so to speak, and taken a trial spin
or two, and that a chap who went
with au old gun to pour some more
lead into it had been tricked by his
weupon and received a wound more
or less serious.
A heated discussion wns brought
on in Toronto when ono of a group
of men characterized the wholo thing
as a flshstory. He was nt once met
witli tho assertion thnt a whalo was
not a fish, and forthwith ensued an
argument as noisy as ono would hear
in a political caucus. Webster's
Unabridged was sought, and tho
first "whale" found thero was tho
verb, meaning "to lash with stripes;
to whale, to thrash, to drub." This
was not satisfactory, but tho next
"whale," defined ns a noun, was better, and tho man who called the
Mammal a fish went awny and hid
himself. Noah Webster snid a whale

A Case In Point.
At Upper Canada College, Toronto, recently, one of tho teachers, In
talking to a class, asked the boys to
give examples of proper nouns that
could have no plural. A small boy
raised his hand promptly, and was
asked to make answer. "Hell, sir,"
said tho boy, mentioning a place
thut certainly is singular enough. -

Appointed Judge for Loyalty.
In November, 1786, Hon. William
Smith wns appointed Chief Justice
of Canada, a position which he retained until his death on November
8, 1703. Tbo office was in the nature of a reward for his unswerving
loyalty to Great Britain during the
American war of tho revolution. Born
in New York, lie was the author,
wheu the controversy aroused by tho
action of Parliament in pnssing tho
stamp act broke out, of a proposal
partaking somewhat of the nature of
a confederation nf the colonies, in
order to meet the problem of the
taxing of the North American dependencies — a council consisting of
representatives appointed by the sov-
eral State Assemblies, to whom,
meeting at New York, all royal re-
uuisitions for assistance should ba
made. This body was to decide upon
tho quotas to be supplied by tha
various States. Possibly the riders
attached, that tho King's approval
should bo necessary in tlio cuse of
the appointment of each member, and
that the tenure of office should ba
during llt'o nnd good conduct, accounted for the scant courtesy which
the proposition received at the hands
of the colonists.
DUntlng; Tea.
Few housekeepers remember, as they
should, that when It Is necessary to
dilute strong tea It should be done with
water at the boiling point. The poor

usually caused by tho nddltlon of hot,
not boiling, wnter to tho first Infusion.
A lesson In this matter may be had
from the Russians, wbo serve the most
delicious tea In tbo world, and who prepare It first very strong, making It almost an essence of tea. This Is diluted
to the strength wished, with water
kept boiling In tho samovar. This
water Is not allowed to boil and rebolj,
but Is renewed as needed. Freshly
boiled water Is Insisted upon by all

Blant Judge  Morris.
On one occasion, In trying an abduction case, Lord Morris, once chief Justice of Ireland, addressed tbe jury as
follows: "I am compelled to direct you
to find a verdict of guilty In this case,
but you will easily see tbat I think It
Is a trifling thing, which I regard as
quite unlit to occupy my time. It Is
more valuable than yours. At any rate,
It Is much better paid for. Find, therefore, the prisoner guilty of abduction,
which rests, mind ye, on four points—
tbo father was not averse, tbe mother
was not opposed, the girl was wIlUb„'
and the boy was convayulent"
Thu Jury found the prisoner guilty,
nud the judge sentenced blm to remain
In the dock till the rising of tbo court.
Hardly bnd he delivered sentence than,
turning to the sheriff. Lord Morris
said: "Let us go," and, looking at the
prisoner, be called across the court
'■Marry the girl at once, and Uod bless
you both."
When a child is hungry it cries—give it food it is satisfied—it grows quiot or goed to sleep. When the

people—it wears them out—it sups their strength until it leaves them a mental, physical and nervous wruck.
Nowhere In all its happy rango aro the splendid effects of Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Food better seen than in
these cases, giving as they do to tho blood all tbat makes it rich and pure. Strong in its power to feed

I was at this timo troubled with a cough and was so very nervous thnt a knock on tho door or any sudden
noise meant agony to me. The doctors called this nervous prostration, and some of them said I was in a

Personal Experience;
Toronto, Dec. 11.—(Special)—Mr J.
c. Jardinu, one of Canada's Commissioners to tlie Paris Exposition, has
returned to his home at 305 Crawford street, this city and is full of
interesting stories of his experience
during his stu.v  in France.
He was impressed with Uie super-
ority uf things Canadian when seen
ulumlside the products of the world.
Everything from Canada wafl "genuinely good," and while in some cases
other exhibits might he more
"showy," none were more worthy.
Mr. Jar-dine return.'., if possible, a
more enthusiastic Canadian, and this
Is In part at least due to tlie fact
that while Ih Paris he was very much
benefited by the use of that great
Canadian tonic, Dodd's Kidney Pills.
His work was very trying and made
great demands on his health and
strength,  but he says :
" During my stay in Paris 1 found
Dodd's Kidney Pills invaluable, relieving Backache instantly and toning up my system generally."
Even in medical lines Canadians
abroad have no reason to be ashamed of their country, for no remedy .In
the world has ever been so quftekly
recognixed and given a foremost
place among known curative* as
Dodd's Kidney Pills wherever introduced.
Tho experience of Mr. Jardina with
Dodd's Kidney Pills in Paris, the
home of some of the greatest medical scientists is significant.

Wounds In civil life differ from tbose

cartridges arc more liable than are
rifle cartridges to bave been bandied
frequently, to bave beeu carried In
dirty pockets and to bave come lu contact wltb various forms of Infectious
materials tbat may prove of serious
consequence wbeu burled ln tlie tissues. Moreover, revolve.* cartridges
are covered with a coating of grease,
and this encourages nu accumulation
of manifold microblc material, some of
which may prove to be of vlruleutly
Infectious nature.
Hitle bullets are practically always
sterilized by the Intense beat developed
by the powder at the moment of their

the air while in n heated condition still
further serves to cleanse tbem of any
extraneous material that may chonee

This cleansing process Is very effectually begun by the rilling of the rifle
barrel through which the bullet forces
Its way.
AH these favorable factors arc lacking In tho cuse of the revolver bullet,

The Lead Problem. '*"
lu Its discussion of tbe lead problem
in British Columbia the Canadian Mining Review hits on the main difficulty
when It points to tbe  want  of a good
market.   Asia Is a large consumer of
lead, but there are many ready to supply Its wants, and British Columbia has
not much chance to compete witb the
States   and Mexico   in   tbe   European
market.    An   Increase   of duty would
give lead producers here the monopoly
of supplying our own country's needs,
but, as tbe Review says, tbe demand In
Canada for lead ln all Its forms Is small
ln companlson  with  the possible production of even a   fe.v of our largest
mines.   The very heavy freight charge
between British Columbia  and  eastern
points would also be ahadicap, which it
would require a high duty to overcome.
One drop of comfort we hove, to  which
the Review did not refer, namely, that
the    Canadian   market   must   expand
rapidly In tbe near future.   Our population Is at present increasing space,
and the Increase Is mainly ln tbe west;
In which region lead producers of'Brit-
lsb Columbia should bave an advantage
If freights are placed on a reasonable
basis.   It   Is   also   possible   that tbey
could complete   more successfully for
Oriental trade   tban the   Review supposes, provided the carriage  tolls are
not kept up to the straining  poinr, as
they undoubtedly are at present.—Rossland Miner.
