From tbe Herald-
Last Saturday William Hughes, one of
tbe oldest conductors on tbe C. P. R.,
met bis death while cutting ciF some
cars in tbe Blairmore yards. He bad
gone beetween two cars to cut off two
freight cars and tbe caboose, and succeeded in pulling tbe pin, when be
must bave slipped and fell. Tbe three
cars passed over tbe middle portion of
his body, and when found be was horribly mangled. Tbe remains were taken
to Albany, N. V , for interment.
Tbe deceased lived in Medicine Hat
and left a wife and sevep children. He
bad served for a long time as spare passenger conductor on tbis division, and
was a man well liked by all wbo knew
A strange coincidence is coupled with
Mr. Hughes' death. Mrs. Hughes and
her sister both lost tbeir husbands by

Is lt peace? That is tbe question
which every citizen of the British
Empire la asking himself.
That great American general Grant
said "War Is Held" and so lt Is, not only
lor the vanquished but for tbe victors
If peace can be established on equitable Hues, so that tbe Boers and the
Britain can live ln harmony on much
the same ilnes as the French and English do ln our own Dominion, all will be
well and another Empire will bo added
to the Anglo Saxon race and the admixture of Dutch blood will, as lt has
done ln the United States, add tbe good
qualities of that f tugal,  bard working
race to future generations.    The fact
of peace being restored ln South Africa
will ln a great measure' help the rest
of tbe   world.     The   feeling   cf   uncertainty will be blotted out, and In our
own    country   many   aching   hearts,
anxious as to the safety of near and
dear ones, will be set at rest and tbe
lives that are being wasted in fighting
on the veldt will once more be able to
be devoted to the industries of  peace
and   will   add   to  the   wealth  of tbe
country, instead   of   being an expense
Tbe following are the latest peace proposals.
The Hague, April 14—From those

here lt appears tbat tbe latest secret
dispatch from South Africa outlines the
peace projiosals now under discussion
at Pretoria. Tbey closely follow the
summary given on Saturday last to the
K'cning News of Edinburgh, wltb the
following additional details :
Tbe Boers accept a British lord commissioner, with a Boer executive, both
to be resident at Pretoria,
Tbe country lo be divided Into districts, witb Urltl.-b dlstiicL officers and
a* Boer committee chosen by polling by
the burghers, the veto right to be reserved to tbe British government. The
majority of the British officers must be
conversant with the Dutch language,
Johannesburg to be retroceded to tbe

organization. B 	
A war indemnity of at least 10,000,0001 Officers
pounds to be distributed by fixed committees.
Disarmament to occur when the first
batch of B« prisoners is sent back to
South Africa.
No war tax to be levied.
Both languages to be recognl*ed in
the schools and courts and in official
The expense of garrisons In South
Africa to be borne by Great Britain.
Tbe present Boer leaders  to be retained in efflce as far as possible.
Now that spring is nearly with us,
and that the snow la quickly leaving
the bills, we may look for a season of
great activity throughout tbe whole of
Soutb East Kootenay.
The division of South East Kootenay
into tbe Eastern and Western ridings
bas not only divided the.district geo-
I graphically bnt lt bas divided Its resources.   Tbe Eastern riding of South
East Kootenay Is  essentially  a  coal
oonntry and we might say, ln passing,
one of the  greatest coal countries ln
the world.   The Western riding, which
Is naturally of more Interest to us as
we live ln it Is a precious metal mining
country and a great  one.     Of course
our end of the district bas otber resources besides Its mines, it bas timber
farming  and ranching Industries   but
mining Is undoubtedly Its main stay.
It follows therefore tbat all wbo are
Interested In the growth of our district
should do all in their power to advance
tbe mining interests ia the district, If
not as  actual prospectors or working
miners, at any rate by letting the outside world know tbat Soutb East Kootenay bas treasures untold lying ln her
boosom awaiting only the mine's pick
wltb the strong arm of capital behind
lt  to give lt to the world.     Time of
course is needed for   the development
of any country and our district is no
exception   to   the   rule.     We waited
many years for railway communication
with the outside world now,  we bave
got it and Sjuth East Kootenay Is not
a bad place to get at from any of the
great   centers of capital.     The   point
however Is to let the capitalists of the
east  and   of  Europe  know   what we
have.   True a great many of them do
but there  Is lots of room to educate
them   still  further  along these lines.
Therefote we say don't '.'jiide your light
under a bushel,"   but   let   -.he. outside
world kuoV, ln any wav you see fit, of
tbe greatness of South East Kootenaj's
resources,   if   her  boundless  mineral
wealth aud of her magnificent climate.
V, U cau do this by tel.iug jour friends
about it when  writing east or to tbe
old country, you'eau  do it by sending
your friends your local paper and pther
papers   published In  the district,     it

Cranbrook Lodge Visited By the Deputy
Grand  Master.
Cranbrook Herald—
Au emergency meeting of Cranbrook
lodge, No. 34. A. K. & A. .11., was beld
last Saturday evening. The occasion
was an official visit from E. E. Chip-
man, deputy grand master of tbe grand
lodge of British Columbia, who, iu company witb H. Byers, of Nelson, district
deputy of district NO. 6, has been visiting the lodges in Soutb East Kootenay.
Although Saturday night is not tbe best
time for holding meetings of tbis nature,
yet a goodly number of the craft were
present, including visitors from Fort
Steele and Moyie. After the deputy
grand master had been introduced to
the lodge, the second degree was exemplified for his benefit, which bropght
forth words of praise from both the
grand lodge officers for the manner in
which tbe work was put ou, and congratulations ou the advancement of the
order in Cranbrook since tbeir last visit
over a year ago.
" After the closing of tbe lodge the
members repaired to^tbe Cranbrook
botel where a neat supper awaited
them. Tbis was followed by a short
toast list, and at the hour of 13 tbose
present retired to tbeir homes.
The saw mills ol this vicinity hare
cut about 75,000 ties this spring aud
there ate over 50,000 more to deliver before tbe first of Juue. That represents a
lot of money for Cranbrook.

Aloyie   News
From the Movie Lpador—
A walk over the grounds of the
smelter company Is sufficient to Instill
any more entbuslasm over the future of
Marysville. The work going on presents a wonderful scene of activity,
and many men are laboring dellgently
to bring about tne completion of South
East Kootenay smelter. The seven
roasters are rapidly nearlng completion, apd already the masons have started on tbe great stacks for each.
The arrival last week of several cars
of the Iron and machinery gave a new
lmpitus to tbe work, and many more
men were added ln consequence. The
pillors for the furnaces have been put
In place, and all Is ready for the brick
work. The crushers for the sulphide
building has been unloaded. It weighs
just twelve tons, and Is a heavy piece

Why do you call the sucker's money
'ready?" Because he Is always willing;

and poor in a strange country and went
fo w.nk in Ihe stablcn for n living. Somehow everybody liked Margaret; her smile
rns sweet and her worths Shrewd. The
children called her Margaret, ami Bbe
knew lheir nanus and answered their
f-nlututinns along tho street as she drove
t-y in i lie mill* cai t.
"Affer some yeara Margaret hnd saved
enough to buy a bit of ground tbat had
on it a small bakery. The place wns Bold
for it tii!!c, bul now Margaret was in
i ynl trim—n landowner ami a manufacturer; for she opened the shop and began
bread nnd pie making for the neighbors.
Presently there was a largo bakery bu.lt;
toon bread carts were running over the
cily bearing the words 'Margaret's Ilak-
cjy.' It became the fashion to buy nt
Margaret's place. During war, pestilence
nnd disaster Margaret's tires were never
out, nnd the delicious rolls kept up their
weight nnd quality, no matter what el-iO
i;i life failed. Then she began running
her free bread carts during the fever pan-
it-. No one went hungry who was within
sound of her cart wheels. From that
(lino on no one need go hungry in New
Orleans—those too poor to buy were given
a loaf fresh and white as the best, and it
was given heartily, with a 'God bring
thee better times!' There was no distinction iu Margaret's favors. She gave to
white und black, of nny church or none.
'Are you hungry?' that is all that was
necessary, 'Here is bread; take it with
God's blessing.' There have been in this
city dread days, which seemed as if God
and everybody had failed us but Margaret; days when she almost literally fid
the city. During the yellow fever panic
Margaret began her noble work of taking
the children from the homes of death aud
putting them iuto a house under good
care, supporting them herself in every
particular. Soon tlio one asylum grew
Into many; the dozens of her little charges
were numbered by hundreds—and at the
time of her death thousands. At the gate
of every orphan asylum in the city Margaret's bread cart, with its smoking rolls,
was seen daily; ut every charitable institution whatsoever wi.-? took the privilege
Of giving her bread freely, nnd Margaret's
name beaded the list for every charity.
"Our grand Charity hospital, one of the
most famous in the world, was largely
the gift of Margaret. Yon must visit
that hospital. It will make yoil better all
your life for having seen it. Uight
through the trees there, ut tlie right, do
you see that magnificent building with its
four galleries funning around the lirst
four stories Of Ihe house? Its gate toils
in golden letters thnt this Is a children's
home, given by Margaret, where to ihe
end of lime orphans will he eared for nnd
educated by her bequests. Many of our
cemeteries contain iu form of handsome
tombs Margaret's simple but munificent
thougbtfulness. Mere you know ail aro
buried above ground In crypts or ovens
of masonry, ami when you visit our cemeteries—as strangers nlways do, for there
nre no burial places like these iu America
—you will see stone tombs, containing
one, two or four dozen bodies maybe, m-
scribed, 'Given to the Little Sisters of the
Poor by Margaret.' 'The 8trn tigers'
Tomb. Given 1 y Margaret.' I Bitpposc
Margaret Bpent more money for *hn nlty
than the i , hest mnn In tho history of the
state, nml of the sympathy nud discernment of the needs of the poor the half
could never be fold. . She Bpent nothing
on herself. A clean blue calico, stout
shoes, n black straw bonnet, n knitted
jacket cr shoulder shawl, an iron bedstead In a room without even a rocking
chair and overlooking tho bakoshnp, sufficed for her. She bnd no time to enjoy
real luxuries. As long as there wns a
weeping Child or o friendless woman
in the cily whnt time had she to fold
ber arms in a rocking chair? While there
were unburied, eoflinless forms could she
adorn her home of the living? Ami so it
happened Unit to the end of lifo Margaret spent neither time, care nor money
on herself.   She foi get there was such a
mortal as Margaret.
"And   when   one  dny  the  news  went
Lorpund that Margaret was dead the great
j city arose ami put on mourning; the busi-
! ness houses were closed; nil the cmploy-
| meats of the city stood still.   The day of
the burial thousands of her little orphans
followed   her   bier   as   mourners;   every ,
church sent delegations of honor bearers;
the public school children joined in the
throng; the houses wene draped along the
line of march; all tho hells in the city
tolled; civic and  military joined  in the
procession with ecclesiastics; there never
was here a funeral like Margaret's.
"Afterward it was found that her possessions hnd been so disposed that had
death conic at any moment the aft'nirs of
this life were well nnd intelligently
wound up. There were no personal effects of value, but even her few garments she left to the poor, and with the
proceeds of her wise investments her
charities are royally endowed.
"This statue is the gift of the city, to
show in this public way the esteem in
which she is held. It is very like Mnr-
gnret. The motherly figure, sonted with
one arm encircling a standing child at
her side; the un trimmed dress, conr.se
shoes, the little crocheted shnwl nbout
her shoulders nre homely, but who would
change them for liner clothing? The
smooth hair, with its old fashioned French
parting; tlie strong chin, the pleasant
mouth, the serious eyes—is there not
something fascinating in the contradictions of the faee?
"Did you ever see such n head on a
woman's shoulders? Massive, wonderful! That is the bead of a statesman nnd
financier, while its mouth, with its pleasant smile, telling of the tact and natural
suavity of Margaret's character, proclaims the elements of a born diplomat.
Yet, look again at the broad, massive
brow, aud see the earnest, loving eye tbat
•-peaks of a true womanhood; look once
more at the eonrse garments and you will
see that poverty added her load to tho ordinary burden of womanhood, while ignorance, bereavement, affliction, loneliness
join hands with poverty against this soul.
Hut the massive brow conquered, the untaught brain triumphed, and under the
leadership of tiie sad, gentle eyes gnve to
the suffering what might, had she been a
man born in other circumstances, have
been the gain of nations and the glitter
of the trapping of n diplomat
"When I consider whnt Margaret did
fnr one city under such desperate disadvantages, I wonder what she could have
done for the World if nil the environments hnd been right. I was thinking of
that as I looked, in passing for the hundredth time, at thu strong, fascinating
face tliis morning, wben your question
met my car.
"Vos, it looks like her, and there will
never be another in marble like it to the

He Knew Wlmt They Wonld Do.
Sir Charles Locook, who was the physician attending Queen Victoria at a certain period of her reign, was once commanded by her majesty to proceed to Berlin and report ou the condition ot her
daughter, the crown princess. On the return trip, stopping at Dover for a hasty
luncheon, he was cuabled to snatch a
glass of poor sherry und a piece of questionable pork pie.
After the.train had pulled out and Sir
Charles had been locked in his compartment he begau to feel drowsy aud to fear
that faintuess wus -uvertaking him. Immediately he thought to himself:
"They will find me in a faint on tho
floor and bleed me for n tit, and I need nil
tny blood to digest this pork pie."
Thereupon ho hurriedly drew out his
pencil, wrote on a piece of paper and
stuck it in the band of bis hat. Then he
resigned himself to the deep sleep that
came upon him. lie did not wake until
the train had pulled into the London station, nud, still dazed by his slumber, he
jumped into n carriage and wus driven
The gtlns of the servnnts and the exclamation of his wife were followed by
the inquiry from one of the children, "Oh,
papa, what have you got in your hat?"
Then he remembered his experience on
the train. Taking off his hat, he removed
the large white paper on which he had
scribbled this petition to the general public:

Old Mailbox.
Among tho treasures held by the Antiquarian society in Portsmouth, N. II.,
there is nn old box the history of which
is given on n label which it bears.
The box is of tin, painted green, nnd
shows signs of much usnge, which is not
surprising when one considers thnt it carried the United States mail between Portsmouth and Itoston during the devolution.
It is about 0 inches long, -I!-! inches wide
nnd a little more thnn that iu height.
It was curried on horseback by Captain
John Noble, otherwise known ns Deacon
Noble, who was post rider until 17; "..
This box contained all tho mail aud mads
every week one round trip, occupying
three days in lhe journey—from Portsmouth to Boston the first of the week and
three days nt the end of the week from
Boston to Portsmouth. The distnnce between the two places is a little more thun
fifty miles.

The Owl  In  Poetry.
Much unnatural history has been written of the owls, and unfortunately most
people have their ideas of them from the
poets. The owl is not moping, nor mourning, nor melancholy, neither is he dolorous nor mournful. He is neither grave
monk, nor anchorite, nor pillared saint.
Poets write by day and owls tly by night,
nud doubtless Mr. Oray aud his school
have their opinion of owls from staring nt
stuffed specimens in glass cases, or at the
birds of wisdom surprised iu tho full light
of day, when they will be seen blinking,
ogling, nodding nnd hissing nt ench other,'
very unlike representatives of Minerva.
Christopher North is the only author
who has done justice to the owls, or justice to the poets, for the matter of that,
by his denunciation of (heir epithets nnd

anything you desire from a pincushion
to a redhot stove—just ask n policeman.
He will point the way to the thieves'

do not corrupt, because there Is always
a stream of purchasers for goods at ridiculous prices. Nothing remains In
Block over a few days. Spread out on
tables or piled high on the ground can
be found samples of almost anything,
for tho Mexican rntero Is not particular what he steals. Tile thieves do
not themselves act ns the salesmen, for
this would be dishonest even to the
Mexican mind. They dispose of their
plunder cither for n lump sum or take
a commission from the sellers.
There Is no assortment of goods as to
class or kind. It is a case of pick
and choose. Crockery, cutlery, tinware
and cooking utensils are the main staples, for the Mexican Is careless, and
the thieves of his find lind this sort of
plunder easy to get and with n ready
market. The proprietor of one of the
well known local restaurants admits
lhat nearly all his knives, forks nnd
table linen come from the thieves'
market. He makes It a point regularly
to visit there to replenish 'what mny
have been stolen from his own place.
Hut It Is perhaps In the line of curiosities, books and objects of art that
the thieves' market Is most Interesting.
The libraries of the monks, scattered In
the war of reform, are represented now
and then. The thieves, of course, know
nothing of tho value of the books.
Ileccntly a folio of Shakespeare,

The Chiunmnu euunot be prevailed upon to grease tbem. In the first place,

upon a silent wheel with suspicion.

Nevertheless these wheelbarrows are

It Wn. Invented hy nn Italian In th.
Sixteenth   Century.
The cemera was Invented by nn Italian named l.aplista Porta, though It
was not at first used for photographing. It wns In reality merely n dark
room. Into which Ihe light wns admitted through a little round hole lu one
side. The rays of light coming from
objects out-side of this room entered it
through this aperture and mnde n picture on the other side of the room glowing In nil the beauty and color of un-
ture Itself, but rather Indistinct and
upside down.
This dnrk room was contrived by Porta about the middle of the sixteenth
century. He Improved lt Inter by placing a glass lens In the aperture und
OUtSldo n mirror which received the
rnysof light nnd reflected them through
the lens so that lhat linage upon the
opposite wnll within wns made much
brighter, more distinct and In u natural or erect position. This wns really
the first camera obsenrn, an Invention
which Is enjoyed lo the present day,
being situated often upon n hilltop,
where n picturesque country surrounding may be reflected through n lens
which !-•_ placed lu tbe center of the
conical roof.
Now, our modern photographic camera Is merely n small camera oliseura
In Its simplest form, carrying a lens nt
ono end nnd n ground glass screen nt
the other. It Is. however, often much
more complicated In Its construction.
The Lax Nickel,
The Philadelphia Record tells of a
little Suuduy school boy who always
receives a nickel from his father to
place In the collection plate. Last Sunday bis father gave blm two nickels,
saying, "Oue Is for the Lord, nnd the
other Is for yourself." As It was, too
early to start for Sunday school tbe
little boy sat on the porch steps, playing with tbe iwo nickels. Alter nwhile
be dropped one of them, and It disappeared down n crack. Without a moment's hesitation and still clutching
the remaining coin lu his clinched fist,
he looked up nt Ills father, exclaiming,
"Oh, pop, there goes the Lord's nickel!"

"Thnt, at least, Is what I thought

A   Trying   Timo   For   Mothers When
Great Care and Watchfulness
ia Necessary.
Theie is scarcely any period in
baby's early life requiring; greater
watchfulness on tho part of the
motlior than when baby is teething.
Almost invariably tho littlo one sutlers much pain, is cross, restless day
and night, requiring so much caro
that the mother la worn out looking
after it. JJut there aro other real
dangers frequently accompanying this
period that threatens baby's life itself. Among these are diarrhoea,indigestion, colic, constipation and
convulsions. The prudent mother
will anticipate and prevent these
troubles by keeping baby's stomach
and bowels in a natural and healthy
condition by tho uso of Baby's Own
Tablets, a inodioitio readily takon by
all children and which, dissolved in
watei-, may be given with poriect
safety to oven a now-born infant, ln
ovory homo whoro" those tablets are
used baby is bright and heaithy and
the mother bus real comfort with it,
and does not hositato to tell I,or
neighbors. Mrs. C. J. Delaney,
Broekville, says : "I havo been giving my Jifteen-months' old baby
Baby's Own Tablets whenever necessary, for somo months past. She
was teething and was cross and restless. Her gums wore hard and inflamed. After using the tablets she
grew quiet., the inflammation of the
gums was reduced and her teeth did
not seem to bother her any more. An
Improvement In baby's condition was
noticeable almost at onco, and I
think there le no better medicine for
teething babies." Baby's Own Tablets enn bo procured from druggists
or will be sent post paid at 25 cents
a box by addressing the Br. Williams Mcdlcino Co., Broekville, Ont.

thit I have made a careful chemical
analysis of Baby's Own Tablets,

that they enn be given with perfect

The Tempter  Won.
When the late Baron Nordcnskjold
was at Ceylon on the wny home from
his Journey along the northern coast of
Siberia, he received a telegram from
the Russian government asking blm
whether he would accept from the czar
n certain decoration ns an appreciation
of bis services to Russia. For many
days the famous explorer wavered, as
he wns u member of BJorsterne Bjorn-
son's Antldeeoratlon club, whose members were solemnly pledged never to
accept any decoration from anybody.
Nordcnskjold, however, could not resist the temptation, so be replied to the
telegram In the affirmative.
It Is not hard to Imagine his disappointment when, upon reaching home,
a friend of bis, a high olllcial. told him
tlie following: "The Russian government was well aware of your antagonistic views In regard to decorations
and had. therefore, placed In readiness
300.000 rubles to be paid you In the
event of your refusing to accept the
Insignlii. but before paying thnt sum
thoy wanted to try your firmness. Russia Is certainly grateful to yon for your
failure to live up to your pledge."

Mnny kinds of Jellyfish are phosphorescent at night and present a wonderfully beautiful appearance when
slowly moving through the water, and
It Is this phosphorescence which has
given them the poetic title of "the

beautiful In tbe daytime, .for most of
tbe species are striped or tinted, some
being melon shaped, wltb rows of
fringes dividing the Bectlous. The tentacles are often plumed, and, while
waving about In graceful curves, attract or gather In tbe food of the animal. Tbe '-'Portuguese man-of-war" Is

"1 Dr. Williams' I'ink piJJs, These
PUIS where freely and fairly used
will strengthen tho weakest constitution, and have cured many cases
of consumption when taken iu its
early stages. Proof of this is u-Jvutt
iu the case of Mrs. Abrani Homy ol
Charlottetown, P, E. I. To a reporter of the Islander who called upon
her, Mrs. Henry said : "A few years
ago 1 found myself growing weak
und pule and emaciated. J took
various medicines on tin advice oi
friends, but none of them appeared
to Uo me any good, and two years
ago my condition became so much
worse that 1 was obliged to take to
my bed and call in a doctor, who
said that my_ lungs were affected,
and that I wus going into consumption, and ho told my mother, who
was mostly in attendance upon me,
that my recovery wus very doubtful.
I grew gradually weaker and weaker.
I could not sit up for ii™ minutes ;
my lungs pained me ; I coughed severely, lost almost all desire for
food, and when I-did eat. 1 found it
difficult, to retain food on my stomach. 1 fell away in weight from 118
pounds to 100 pounds, and 1 do not
think any of my friends cxpoctcd to
see me get better. But somo of tbem
urged me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and 1 decided to do so. 1 began by taking one pill a day, for my
stomach was very weak, but 1 v.'as
soon able to increase this to three
pills a d.iy, and finally as my
strength was increasing under their
use, 1 took iiins pilla a day. The
change which came with the use oi
tlie pills wus littlo short of miraculous, and so marked and rapid that
inside oi two months alter 1 began
their uso, 1 was able to leave :,iy
bed and move about the bouse, und
soon after 1 wus able to walk about
in tbe opon air and make short visits
lo my friends. Ou one of those occasions 1 met tlie doctor who bad iu-
tendutl me, und he nsked me whul I
hal been taking that had made such
an Improvement, 1 replied that 1
kail been taking Dr. Williams' I'ink
Pills, and he said 'all right, continue them; they won't hurt you anyway ' Well, 1 continued taking liuiu
until I „ had used seventeen boxes,
wiih the result that 1 never folt belter than 1 do now—not even in my
girlhood days, lt is more ihun a
year since I stopped taking tho pills,
ani you can see for yourself what
Ibey did for me. 1 may say, too,
that my weight has increased to 187
pounds. I am not anxious for publicity, but when I think of what the
pills did for mo, 1 believe 1 ought lo
sucriflce my own feelings for tho hell-
elit oi somo other poor sufferer."
