Further   Evidence oi the Riches of This
Cranbrook Herald—
The whole district of South East Kootenay is greatly interested in tbe development of the iron mines at Kitchener,
which has been carried on under the
supervision of W. Blakemo.e, tbe well
known mining engineer. He has spent
the winter in Montreal, and last week
came west, going to Nelson. On
Monday he passed through' Cranbrook
enroute to Fernie, and The Herald man
waa fortunate enough to meet him at
the station.
'Is it true that tbere will be no further
development work on the Kitchener
iron properties," waa asked of the gentleman,
"Absolutely so," Mr. Blakemore re*
plied, "simply because it is not necessary to expend any more money in that
direction. I have been satisfied from
the start that we bad a big thing, and
our iMveatigatioo8 and assays the past
winter have demonstrated that we have
one of the beat iron properties known.
We have it on the best of authority that
our ore runs higher in metallic-iron and'
lower in sulphur than the famous Lake
Superior iron. Tbere ia nothing more
to be done now, until the time is ripe
for the establishment of steel works and
the development of the minea. Tbe
atate of the market and tbe general condition of affairs in the province would
not justify the large expenditure which
this would involve at tbe moment, but
the company is prepared to go ahead on
the lines outlined as soon as such a
course is justifiable. Meanwhile plans
are being prepared and tbe necessary
preparations being made for tbe erection
of a steel plant and the actual work will
be inaugurated at no distant date. Tbis
season no work will be dose on tbe
properly except the necessary assessment work on properties bonded. The
company haa crown granted all the
claims which it haa purchased."
Tbis meana thut Soutb East Kootenay
has proven beyond all question that it is
tbe richest district in all of Canada, having within its boundaries all of the ele
nients of grest wealth, and that tbe development means sucb changes in tbia
district that the mind of tbe average
man today cannot comprehend what
the future will bring forth.
Mr. Blakemore goes west in a few
daya to examine coal property tor the
Similkameen- Valley Coal company antl
other property tbat promises great re-
urns to the investors.

A Big Striks  Reported  on
the  North  Star.
Increased   Activity  is   Noticable   all
Over   tbe  Whole
From Cran* ">k Herald.
Mining news vhla *Ak is further evidence of the fact that South East Kootenay is a vast treasure house of precious
metals. The latest and one of the most
satisfactory plecea of r;ws received for a
lung time, is that of a, big strike of galena on the North Star property. It is
reported that laat wet •: while operating
the diamond drill a vein of galena ore
waa atruck that shot d between seven
snd nine feet.. This is exceedingly gratifying, since it demonstrates that this
celebrated property will continue to pay
dividends for a long time to come.
Arrangements have been completed
for tbe Nortb Star to commence shipping, and this also means a large addition to tbe force. This incressed work
on that property is a good thing for the
district, and simply emphasizes the fact
tbat South East Kootenay ia bound to be
a marvelottsly rich section.
The   Aurora.
Tom Rader of Moyie, was in town last
reek. He ia one of the owners of tbe
Aurora property, which is located just
across the lake from the St. Eugene, and
was feeling very good over a strike of
three feet of galena, in a new portion of
tbe claim. Work bas been inaugurated
on this part of the claim owing to water
in the shaft, and tbe change proved to
be a lucky one.
The   Sullivan-
In all probability work will be resumed on the Sullivan in a very short time.
Just as soon as the smelter at Marysville
is near completion active operations will
commence at tbe mine. Mr. Hull, general manager of the properly, is in tbe
east now, and while there will arrange
with the railroad company for tbe con*
struction of a tramway to bring the ore
down from Ibe mine.
The  St.   Eugene.
The new boilers that hnve been installed at tbe St. Eugene are of far
greater power than Ihe old ones, which
would indicate that the company is preparing for an immense amount of heavy
work. Everything is getting in shape
about the property for work, aud it is
generally conceded that operations will
be resumed within a short time.
Perry  Creek.
Messrs. Thompson and Banks are busy
pumping the water out of their mine
three fourths of a mile up tbe creek
from Old Towu. When the water is all
out they will put in a large new pump.
The mine has been closed for two or
three months, consequently it was full
of water and a big job to get it all out.
It will take tbem two or three weeka yet
to clear it. This is the famous placer
mine that yielded so well last summer.
Mrs J. O. Trow of Wisconsin, arrived
at Perry creek on tbe first of May, and
will spend the summer at the Perry
Creek Mining company's camp.
Gus Tbies has leased an interest in
the Thompson and Banks property and
work is being pushed as fast as possible.
Oliver Burge bas been clearing and
beautifying the park around Old Town
making It an ideal place for picnics.
Old Town, Perry creek, isjustanice
distance from Cranbrook for a drive as
there Is a fine wagon road all the way,
and good accommodations at tbe end,
Tbe recent rains are clearing the snow
from tbe mountains, giving the prospectors a chance of which -they are taking
advantage every fine day.
Jimmie Larson bas left his interests at
Petty creek in care of Uua Thies, and
will start on Monday for Thunder
Mountain, Idaho. Jimmie will be back
to good old Perry creek.
REPORT  ON  C.   P.   R.  COAL
Col.  Taylor's  Report    Submitted
Minister of Interior.
Ottawa, April 20.—The minister of
the interior bas submitted to Parliament the report of Colonel Taylor, of
Pittsburg, who, at Mr. Slfton's request,
examined last summer the Crow's Nest
I'ass Coal company's field ln order to
determine the best place to select tbe
50,000 acres of coal lands to which tbe
government la entitled, such lands to
be of an average value of the entire
coalfield. The expert made a careful
examination of tbe cdal developed at
tbe mines of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company at Michel Creek, Coal
Creek, and Morrissey Creek, and also
examined it where developed by the C
P. R. company on Michel Creek, near
Marten Creek. From the development
now made he judges the best part of
this coalfield(both ln regard to thickness
of seams and ease wltb which they may
be worked), lies between Michel Creek,
where Marten Creek enters It, and
Morrlssey Creek, where Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company are now operating
their mines.
He recommends i "That all the coal
lying between Morrissey Creek and
the outcropping of the seams on Lodge-
pole Creek, be selected, and that a
dividing line be drawn from a point at
the junction of tbe north aod south
branch of Morriaaey Creek near where
preaent openings are being made by
the Orowa Neat Paaa Coal company;
from this point due nortb until It In*
teraecta with a line running east and
west through the most southern side of
the property, now owned by tbe Crow's
Nest Paaa Coal company on Marten
Creek, and tbat the greater part of the
50,000 acres be selected to the east and
south of these two lines, Witb a proper
division made of the coal selected as
above described at Morrlssey Creek
there might be two separate operations
made ln this creek, one of which could
operate In the territory directly south
of the creek, and the other could work
In tbe territory east and north. The
next available place would be on Michel
Creek and Marten Creek. This ten!
tory could be*,so divided as to accommodate two operations. These are the
only two available places for operations, tkat I saw, and I would classify ln
relative merits the operation on Morrlssey Creek as No. 1, and that on
Marten Creek and Mlcnel Creek as No.
2. In recommending the selection of a
continuous territory from Morrlssey
Creek to Michel Creek I had ln my mind
the fact tbat if a smaller field were
selected at Morrlssey Creek and another similar held at Michel Creek and
Marten Creek, that the intervening
territory between these two fields
wonld be worthless, as it would be ln-
acccessible from any otber points.
And I am of the opinion tbat the centre
of the field lying between tbe two
points above mentioned will be found
to contain the best coal. The distance
across the field measured between tbese
two points is but nine or ten miles, and
lt is peifecily practicable to mine half
way from each side. Tbat would give
a maximum undergrouud haulage of
tbe coal of four or five miles, which Is
not an Impracticable distance. I wish
to especially recommend to you tbe
selection of tne field at Morrlssey Creek
as the present developments indicate
that tbe coal Is here at its maximum
thickness, and Ilea ln the mountain in
such a way that it can be economically
moved and operated, and there will be
two main lines of railway easily accessible from tbis point."
Work on the Marysville smelter is
progressing favorably, and lt Is announced ^y the management that the
smelter wlil be blown In not later Chan
July first. This smelter Is being built
by tbe owners of the Sullivan mine, ln
which it is claimed, there are 200,000
tons of ore blocked out.—Western Mining World.

Soldiers' Increase of Pay.
A special British army order Issued
contains a Royal warrant embodying
tbe Increase ln soldlers'pay and charges
tbe terms of service, as stated by Mr.
Brodrick in tbe house of Commons,
The chief provisions are :
From April 1,1902, soldiers with the
necessary qualifications will receive an
-additional sum of 3d. a day. The sum
will not be granted to Maltese or to
non-European soldiers or to soldiers of
the Royal Garrison regiment, wbo already receive additional pay. On and
after April 1, 1901, a further daily Increase of fid. will be granted to all
warrant and non.commissioned officers
and to cSclent soldiers wbo have completed two years'color service, an addition of a penny a day being made
after five years' total service. An Increase of 41, a day will be granted
after tbe same date to other soldiers
wbo are allowed.to extend their service
or wbo having been enlisted for more
than three years, are not placed ln tbe
former class, In either case they mint
have completed two years' color service. An additional penny a day for
good conduct wlil also be granted to
the men In tbia class after five years'
total service. With regard to tbe
terms of army service, after April 1,
1902, enlistment will be for a period of
three years with colors and nine years
In the reserve for the following corps:
Cavalry of the line, Royal Artillery,
Uoyal Engineers (-xcept military
mechanists and railway, telegraph, and
submarine mining reserve), Foot
Ouards (except bandsmen), Infantry of
the Ioe, Itoyal Army Service Corps, and
Army Ordnance Corps (except armourer
and machinery artificer scctlona.) In
other cases enlistments will continue
under existing conditions.
It's  Resources are   Varied
and   Unlimited.
And    the  . Development    Means     In-
creasing Prosperity   for
A district which has, not only coal,
iron and mineral, to back it up, but also
timber and agricultural Industries, a
magnificent climate and good people In
It Is needed Id a lucky district. Such a
district Is South East Kootenay. Within the limits of this section we have
coal, yes coal -'to burn", thousands and
thousands of acres of coal. We have
timber, many thousands of acres of
timber. We have mines, among others
the St. Eugene which bas perhaps the
largest deposit of sliver lead ore on tbe
North American continent. The North
Star another silver lead properly ofgreat
mint and a steady dividend payer. The
Sullivan another sliver lead property
with 260,000 tons of ore blocked out and
which la now preparing to treat ita own
ore and la building a amelter for that
purpose at our own town of Maryaville,
We have agricultural and ranching
landa ln varloua parts of the dlatrict.
The Valley of the Kootenay river la
dotted from lu aource to tbe boundry
line with faros which would be a credit
to any country, Tne St, Marya prairie
and the upper St, Marya country are
alao good farming aectloua and ao is the
county around tbe towna of Cranbrook
and Maryaville.
A coaotry with all theae natural advantages cannot stay ln tbe background
long. Capital la looking for countries
that bave a prosperous future before
them and South East Kootenay Is without a shadow of a doubt one of these.
Unlike many other mining countries,
South East Kootenay Is not a country
with only one resource as has been
shown above.
Another point in which our district is
superior to many others la in the matter of Its natural advantages for manufacturing. At many points ln the district the cheapest kind of power,
water, can be used and where tula aa
vantage docs not exist coal and coke
can be o.talned more cheaply than In
other sections owing to our huge coal
Hance, as we have said before and
shall say again, South Eist Koolenay Is
a good coutiuy io lie up to. We have
lied up lo lc and we have never regret
ted it.
'       The  Lumber Combine.
The Rossland Miner says: Recent
arrivals in Rossland from East Kootenay are responsible for the statement
that tbe big lumber combination wbicb
has been projected for some months Is
now completed. Archie Leitcb, the
Cranbrook lumber magnate, having
reached home alter a lengthy visit In
the east, during which the final steps
in tbe amalgamation were taken. Tbe
combination Includes five of tbe largest
mills in East Kootenay, and report bas
lt that the combination has secured almost Invaluable privileges ln form of a
five-year contract to supply the Canadian Pacific witb material aad cutting
concession on railroad reserve for an
equal period. Ths latter feature will
permit of lumbering operations on
ground that is covered wltb the most
magnificent timber ln the country, bnt
which has as yet been untouched by tbe
logging camps.
Negotiations looking to tbe formation
of such a combination have beeu under
way for some time, iu fact, It la well
known that tbe principal promoters
hare had the scheme ln mind for a year
or more. The lumber Industry In East
Kootenay has assumed auch proportions
as to necessitate the employment of
large capital, and the competition
engendered among the big pants begao
to be felt, althongh the preset year Is
exceptional, inasmuch as lt Is stated on
excellent authority, that every mill in
the country has orders for Its entire
winter cut of logs. The theory of combining the mills, wiping out much of
the competition that was beginning to
crop np, and substantially lowering the
costs of office management and selling
finished material In the Territories,
which Is the natural market for the
product, appeared to be attractive, and
it Is now stated that the proposition baa
been closed up.
The effect of such commercial combinations Is usually to close down some
of tbe plants Interested, but tbla will
certainly not be the case In Mast Kootenay this year for obvious reasons.
The mills are scattered somerrhrt, and
the ordinary complement of superln*
tet.dents and foreman will have to be
retained while the crews of sawyers
and loggers will not oi course, be reduced.

Fighting  In  the  Traasvaal.
London, April 28 —Newa of severe*
fighting in the Tranavaal at the end of
last week haa been sent by Lord Kitchener, who reports that abont 100
Boers were killed, wounded or captured. Tnere were about loo Britlabr
casualties. The British captured three
guns and a considerable quantity of
supplies. 'Comnudant Potgleter was"
among the Biers killed.
Lord Kitchener, in a dispatch dated
from Pretoria, Sunday, April 13, states
tbat tbe fighting commenced April 8,
when the Inniskllllng Fulialera attacked Mollspoort, covering tbe Boer poai-"
tion, and by dusk had seized a hill eaat-'
ward of Mollspoort after considerable'
opposition, resulting ln Colonel Murray
being killed.
The most severe fighting occurred'
April 11 ln Western Transvaal, where'
General Ian Hamilton bas replaced
General Methuen in command of the
British troops. The Boers attacked1
Colonel Kekewlch'a force near Roolwal,
and fighting at close quarters ensued."
The Boera were repulsed, leaving on'
the field 44 men killed, Including Com*,
mandant Potgleter, and 34 wounded'.
The British captured 20 unwonnded
prisoners. According to last accounts.
General Ian Hamilton will pursue the'

Country Rides
O   A Story of aa Automobile. y
They were hopelessly stuck when 1
came nl.mg on my wheel. The country
was u desolate waste around, the nearest
town ten nil!ea nu lhe crow Hies. The
roads were—well, my muddy tires would
not recommend them.
"Broke down?" I nsked with thnt evident concern n man nlways feels for two
helpless Indies stranded by the wayside

asked, Cor ii wns self erideul.
"Yes. The electricity or something hns
given cu!."
It was ii sweet, girlish voice, which I
admired, and the face harmonised with
it. The . ther occupant of Uie vehicle was
the mother, and not quite so attractive.
"A tiad place t« break down," I suggested, dismounting. "See whnl 1 etiu do
Mr you."
"It's very kind of you,"
"We   wouklu'l   like   i<>   detain   yon,
as If she thought 1 waa a highwayman.
"Xo particular hurry," 1 replied. "1

"And we- too, thought we won!.] hnve
a ride all alone. Papit never likes tu have
me gu oione, bul Johu was nwny. aud 1
tuld memmn 1 knew how to run tlie machine.   Aud I do!"
"Certainly. But repairing it is another
thi i:."
* ips. John had nn business to let it
get out of order."
"If yon will dismount," I snid, "I might
make nn investigation^'
I held out my arm tu usr,i.st her, but her
mother protested,
■'Is it necessary? The roads are so
"No, not necessary Cor both," I added,
already holding the arm of her daughter.
She stood by my side and watched tne
open lhe box, giving ndvice nnd directions
nbout the locution of the tools, which 1
"The electricity has not given out." I
announced inter, "but there is something
wrong with tbe battery. There's power
enough In it to carry you fifty miles or
kill a dozen men."
"Mercy, Stella, is there nny danger?"
queried the woman in the nulomoblle.
"Nu, mnmmn."
"Nut any. madam," I added reassuringly. "However, 1 must get at the board
under your feet. If you will kindly hold
them up a moment"—
"tt'nitl   I will get out with Stella!"
"Not nt all necessnry."
Hut Bbe climbed down In n hurry, and
I proceeded to lift the board, it wns a
common enough battery nnd motor, bnt n
little kinky iu its actions nt times. Be-
ing somewhat of nn electrician, 1 promised to repair the injury in ti short lime.
"It's fottunnte we met you," snid Stella laughingly, "or we might bave hnd to
walk hack to town."
"Yes, it is very fortunate for me," 1
replied, without looking up, but through
tlie machinery I could see looks of disapproval on the mother's face. Thnt provoked me to work in silence for some
minutes. Then, jumping into the nulo-
■n.ihile. I said:
"Now I think tho thing will go. Which
.ever do you use?"
"Tins one."
She sprang lightly into tbe vehicle nnd
touched the handle, giving it a sudden
twist. Then the machinery did go. There
were a whirring and buzzing thut made ns
turn in alarm. The wheels dug Into the
mud so fast (hat they Hung a handful
straight at the mother, who stood directly
back of us. The vehicle darted forward
like a race horse,
"Shut off the power!" I Bald quickly.
Stella looked at me with u peculiar
smile and snid:
"I can't."
"Why not?   Let me try!"
I took the lever from her hand and
turned it char around, but there was mi
diminution in tlie speed of die automobile. If anything, it seemed to gallop
faster. We were now a hundred yard-;

"Tben you'll have all you want before

We piis-ed a team, which shied at our
vehicle and nearly upset the carriage in

"We must be creating a sensation." I
suggested grimly, trying ngriiu to abut off
the power,
"Shouldn't wonder," idie replied. Then
eayerly, "But it's fun."
"Yes, lots of fun," I assented not Wishing lo la- beaten by a girl.
"I'm glad you're not afraid," she added, "for if you were I think I might he."

"I Wouldn't if I could help It. I like
the country much better. But there are
no forks in tlie road and at this speed I'm
nfraid I could not turn around gracefully

She laughed—softly and musically.
"I should think not. We might be

"YelJ hpilled out," I shivered.

"I suppose niauiuia will be worried

Isn't he mail now?"
"J suppose so," I replied, "hut I can't

"Fifty!" 1 groaned.
"How lovely!"
"Yes.    Lovely!"
Outside of the village the rond forked.
One went down into the lowlands where
tbe roads were good; the other climbed
n steep hill. I saw my hope, and toward
the hill 1 steered.
"Why, the roads are belter the other
way," sho said.
"I thought they were smoother up

"No; this road lends up the side of the
mountain, and we can never get to the
top without stopping.   I'm sure of it."
"I thought the ether one led up the
mountain.    How provoking!"
"Yes; very provoking! It will spoil
our ride!"
There was disappointment on the pretty faee, but when we climbed the bill and
our vehicle panted and snorted under the
exertion my courage and spirits returned.
''Weil, it can't be helped now. We've
hnd a splendid ride together. I shall always remember it."
"Yes; splendid! I hope mamma won't

Worn out with its exertions, the vehicle
came to a sudden standstill near the summit. Stella dismounted, and I quietly disconnected the machinery.
"It's broken for good now," I snid, examining it. "We will have to get a team
to drag it back to the village."
"How menu I I thought we should havo
n good run down the hill. You wouldn't
be afraid, wonld you?"
"Certainly not," I faltered, looking
down the steep road. "But it's out of the

"Then we'll have to walk It."
"Yes, but together, und that will be

They were having an Informal gathering ut the Btilliugt.iu-Bniwns. Mrs. Buf-
fiogton Brown's brother, .lack, had dropped into town suddenly, nnd his luving
sister wanted a lew of the young people
of her acquaintance to meet him, aud it
had to be an Informal affair because Jack
wat obliged tu be iu Washington at a
certain hour, and there was only this one
evening to meet him.
- lis sister wns very proud of .lack, and
i\(!l she might be. .lack was in lhe army
and had seen wrvfee ia l»'th Cuba aud
Luzon. It hail hew brilliant service, ton,
especially in the I'hlltpplnes. where with
a little bund in khaki he had held ofT a
host of insurgents and then been rescued
jiv-i as the Inst cartridge was reached.
He had got a bullet iu his arm in ibis
warm affair and never knew il until aft-
er ail was over. And he had been mentioned in ihe dispatches and been pro-
united, nnd the newspapers mode Quite a
hero ef him.
He looked like a hero. II- wns lull
aud robust, with thick dark unlr nnd a
bronzed complexion and wonderful dashing eyes. And lie talked wi 'I loo. Being
the lion or the affair, he had tn talk, nnd
uf course his tail; turned i:i the direction

guests culled fur and what l!:ey wanted.
and. mar as modestly as he might, he
had perforce to roar of his own prowess."
It was "Please tell us about that light

you feel \\ hen the last cartridge was
gone? And is it (rue that you made the
men tear up everything while ihey had
about them for fear ihey might be tempt
oil lo raise the siglftd of surrenderV"
But he went ihrough with it wry well
Indeed. Even tbe men who were present
had to admit that. As fer the girl:1, they
thought hint adorable.
When it was time to break up nnd the
goodbys were being said. Mrs. Hulling
ton-Brown had asked Edgar French to
seo that May Freeman got home safely
The distance wasn't far, and Kdgar was
nn old friend of the family. I'erhap*-
M.ind Bufiington-Binwu bad an idea that
Edgar would be pleased at the trust re
posed in him.    Everybody liked Gdglir.
May Freeman looked up at bim as he
carefully adjusted her cape. Perhaps she
menl ally contrasted him with the gloti
ous -lack.
Edgar was of medium height, of fait
complexion, with a rather firm chin and
bright gray eyes. He was uot of the
stalwart build that marked tbe war hero,
and yet be looked well knit despite bis
As they moved nway from the house
May turned to him and said:
"Would you mind, Mr. I-Ycuch, If we
prolong our walk a little? The night Is
so pleasant and the air so bracing, I'm
choked up with all th: t battle smoke, and
the clear atmosphere is such a relief."
"I am delighted," said Edgar, and H
gave him quite a thrill to feel that he
could grant ber even so small n favor.
"We will walk around two extra blocks,
if yon please," said May, "and by that
time 1 think I'll get the rattle of the
musketry out of my ears. Wasn't he
"He certainly wns," replied Edgar. "To
me it seemed that he was in almost as
embarrassing a position ns that at Turn-
menu.    But he cnine out uf it with Hying
*i should have thought all the men
would bave beeu dreadfully jealous of
l.iui," laughed May.
"No doubt we were for the moment,"
hiiiglud Edgar in return, "but possibly
we were consoled by the thought that it
is quite impossible for all of us to go to
war. Some of us, as the philosophical
young gnufilter in 'Cast*' remarks, must
stay home and pay rates and taxes."
But May did not laugh at this.
"I suppose." she said, "that it is an Inherited tradition that makes women love
physical courage. Probably it comes
down to them from tho time when man
.'.light for them and the stronger or
braver took the prize."
She turned and half looked at Edgar as
she spoke. Perhaps she wondered tf this
man whom she knew loved her would be
Willi.:g to fight for her as the wooer
foltgl i for his bride when the earth was
"I know that I am arguing from the
iinsynipnthetic standpoint." said Edgar,
"bul it seems to me that any man who is
useful tn^soeiety, who tills nny worthy
niche, no matter how small, is doing society ns well as himself an injustice when
be needlessly or recklessly exposes bim
self lo danger. Of course there are times
when such exposure becomes a necessity.
It was sn with the man who has entertained us tonight. That's hia trade. It's
shop with him as much ns cotton brokerage is with me.    What 1 contend is that
• in' ordinary man's life is quite too valuable t" the stale to be thrown nwny
through a merely barbarous sentiment,"
May was silent fur a moment.
"I think you must be bruve, or you
wouldn't hnve the courage to advance
such a belief," she said. "It's a part of
the spirit of commercialism, isn't It?"
Edgar winced.
"1 suppose it is," he said.
"And you mean to say," she went on
without heeding his murmured assent,
"that if you were attacked, say, by high
waynieu, you would offer no resistanceV"
"Well," snid Edgar slowly, "it would
be a question with me whether u ..inket
or two and a few dollars would be a fair
equivalent for the grievous risk I would
run of much bodily injury in case I resisted,"
"And you would bold up your hands
and submit lo the looting aud the humiliation?" May QPlied, and there was nn un
musical edge to her usual pleasant tones.
"Under ordinary circumstances I fancy
1 should play the philosopher rather than
the hero," replied Edgar, and lit* asked
himseir in the silence thai followed why
lie wns painting his picture in such unprepossessing colors.
They had almost circled the second
block and were on tlicit; way back to thr
uvenuo in which May resided. The crost
Street was a lonely one. and as they near
ed the corner of an Iniersceiiiig ulicy Ed
gar saw thnt three men were standing un

As they approached tho trio Edgar saw
thnt he and May must pass between the
pair and the single man. If anything was
to happen, he would precipitate it.
He walked directly at the pair.
"Hold on there!" said a gruff voiee, and
one of the men drew something from his
pocket that glistened ns he ruisod It.
Edgar swung May back.
"What's thnt?" he said.
"Throw up your hands," growled the
gruff man, ond the barrel of n revolver
wns thrust against Edgar's breast. "Go
through him, Jim.   Hustle."
The second mnn pulled open the victim's coat. Edgar's bunds, held iu front

"Hold the girl, Joe," said the man with
the revolver.
The third <uan intercepted May la her
"Edgar!" she cried.
The eye of the mnn witb the revolver
wavered. At the same instant Edgar
struck up the weapon witb his left arm
and thrust his right elbow with all the
force he could command into the second
umn's face. There was a sharp report,
and Edgar felt something like the sear of
a hot Iron across Ids temple. The fingers
of Ids left hand cunglit the rutliau's
wrist, and with his right hnnd he struck
him a crushing blow in the face. The
second man, dazed for a moment, sprang
forward nud tried to grapple with Edgar
from behind, but the latter, fighting desperately for possession of the revolver,
had whirled his man half round, nnd for
a seewnd or two it wus impossible to
grasp blm.
"Joe!" gasped the first ruffian. The
mnn who had been guarding Mny and
who hnd pnused irresolutely wheu the revolver report rang out sprung forward
with a short billy lu his hand. At the
same moment a second report was heard,
and the first ruffian dropped to his knees,
clinked, gasped and i^-hed forward. The
second man stood iw^^, but the third
man, with an oath, JpSfhgMJt Edgar.
The latter steppes h.-u-k and met the
rush with n revolve!- shot. The fellow's
arm dropped to liis sfJe, and be roared
with pain. At this the second mnn turned into the street aud ran swiftly down
the rondwoy. The third man followed
him, but much more Slowly.
It had all happened so quickly—the halt,
the struggle, the disirtiintiture of the highwaymen—that the impulse to scream had
not come to May. She bad stood on the
lower step nnd watched the fight with
suspended brenlh uud parted lips. Now
she ran forward.
"Oh, Edgar," she cried, "nre you
He wns panting n little and for a moment could not answer.
"I guess not," he laughed, ne put his
hand to hia bleeding head. "Seems to be
a scrntch or something up here. -Great
luck, wasn't it?"   And he laughed again.
"(Jive me your handkerchief, Edgar."
She tenderly bound up his wound. Her
face came very close to his. Suddeuly
the kissed him and qnickly drew back.
"You are splendid!" she murmured.
"Pooh, pooh," ho smilingly protested.
"Pm really a coward nt henrt. It was
your call for help that mnde me forget
myself.   Ah, here nre the police.".
Two men in uniform enme nronnd the
nenrest corner nnd hurried toward them.
Edgar stepped forward. One of the officers knew him and called him by name,
and the story of the nffrny was soon told.
The head of the prostrate ruffian was
raised ond Edgar's friend nt once recognized him as a notorious criminal.
"Tbe fellow's bit bard," the officer
said. "Simpson, call an ambulance and
the patrol. And you winged another of
'em ?"
"Yes," replied Edgar, "I'll cheerfully
admit it. But this fellow really shot
himself.   Here's his revolver."
"Where's your weapon?"
"I haven't any."
The officer looked up.
"Well," he snid with much emphasis,
"you're n plucky one!"
At this May gave Edgar's arm an eloquent squeeze.
"Thnt's nil right, officer," Edgar laughingly snid. "You know me and know
where to find me when I'm needed. 1

May held very tight to Edgar's arm as
they moved nway.
"You seem to have forgotten to practice what you preached," she softly murmured.
"I hnve no doubt," Edgar said, "that I
hnve been guilty of a very foolish nnd
reckless net."
But May only Bmiled.—Cleveland Plain

hadn't bin gone five tuinlts when In

tipped over the crock lioltlin' the sorghum, chawed up my bat and knocked

"Extra" Is an abused word. People
say "extra good" or "extra cheap" In
order to Intensify "good" and "cheap."
But "extra" has no such force. So far
from intensifying a given condition, lt
denies it by indicntlng that the thing
so described lies outsldo the sphere or
quality named. Thus, "extra judicial"
does hot menu more than ordinarily judicial, as though a Judge had dredged
bis conscience in giving an opinion, but
outside of judicial and therefore Incapable of being judged at all tu the prescribed way.
A grievous fault Is the use of "Identify" in a phrase like this, "He Is Identified with the nntlvacclnatlon movement." A man can only Identify himself with another man or set of men.
He can Identify himself with the opponents of vaccination—and even here
the word carries a shade of meaning of
Its own, distinguishing the phrase from
such a one as "be joined the opponents
of vaccination."
One should not speak of "high" or
"low" caliber; but, remembering the
meaning of "caliber," one should apply
to lt only such adjectives as "great" or
It Is wrong to speak of a "consensus
of opinion." The word "consensus" Itself menus an agreement of thought
and should stand alone.—Academy.

"Colds thut will nover be cured." A startling sentence, but you know it to be true. Scarcely a day
paHScs but some death from consumption, pneumonia or similar ailment emphasizes Uie truth of this statement. It is well to remember that a newly-contracted cold can, in almost every case, be cured, lt is tho
negltcted cold that leads to death—the cold that runs on an on—tho cold thai is added to by fresh coids
from time to time.
But what, treatment is to ho chosen from tho great number of remedies that aro recommended? You ton
use common sense in buying medicine, just as you can in the purchaso of a piano, a bicycle or a sewing machine. Find out wlmt treatment has tin* best record In tho past, .'.pply tho test of time and get the opinion
of people who know from experience.
H you apply this test to medicines for couirlis, colds and similar ailments, you will select Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, because of tho extraordinary merits which it possesses, and which havo become known to tho public generally .through years of trial. The sales of this remedy aro far-in excess of any
similar preparation, and have novor been so large as during the present season. These two facts are, we believe the strongest evidence that can bo produced in verifying tho merits of any remedy that has been thoroughly  tested for years.
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed end Turpentine is prized especially f|ecausc of its far-reaching effects, oven in
tho most serious cases of bronchitis, Whooping cough, croup and nsthma. It is not a mere relief for coughs,
. but acts on the whole system thoroughly curing the cold and removing chest pains, soreness of the lungs
and bronchial tubes, and all inflammation of the respiratory organs.
Just a word of warning. There arc other preparations of turpentine and linseed put up in imitation of

.Remedies Will Not Cure—Thu
Rheumatic Taint Must Be lie-
moved From the Blood.
j The lingering tortures of rheumatism arc too well known to need description, but it is not so well known
that medical science now recognizes
that the primary cause of rhoufllft-
tlsm is Impure or impoverished blood:
.The result is that hundreds of spller-
ers   uppiy external   remedies   whicll
'cannot possibly cure the trouble. The
only thing that will really cure rheumatism is an internal medicine that
will enrich the blood and free it from
rheumatic taint, The surest, quickest and most effective way to do this
is to take Dr. Williams' Pink Piils,
which lire proved to havo cured thousand*---  of cases  of rheumutism many
j of them after all other medicines had
.failed, 'lhe case of Mr. Philip Ferris, one of the pioneers of South Ks-
sex, Ont., is proof of this. Although
Mt*. Ferris is 70 years of age he is
as simirt as many men of 50. But he
has not always enjoyed such good
health Mr. Ferris lias the following to say about his illness and cure:
"For fifteen years 1 suffered greatly
from rheumatism. At times I would
have severe pains in the knees, while
at others the pain would spread to
my hips and shoulders. 1 tried several remedies which were of no avail
until T begun using Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I took eight or ten boxes
and they completely cured the
trouble and I am now as smart ns
many men much younger. 1 have a
great deal of faith In tlio pills for 1

been equally as successful i;s in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make new.
rich, red blood and strengthen the
nerves with every dose. It is in this
way that they cure such troubles as
rnuumatism, sciatica, neuralgia, kidney and liver troubles, partial paralysis, St Vitus' dance and erysipelas.
Through their action on the blood
they restore the color to pale und
sallow cheeks and cure the ailments
that make the lives of so many
women miserable. The genuine always

Peevishness aud Sleeplessness :i Sure
Sign That Baby is Unwell.
When babies ure restless, cross, or
peevish it is the surest possible sign
of illness. Well babies sleep soundly
cufcj ure cheerful and playful when
awake. When baby is cross too
many mothers give so-called "soothing"*' medicines, which contain opiates that deaden but do not remove
the trouble. Whnt is wttnted is a
medicine that will go right to the
root of the trouble and make baby
sleep well, eat well und be cheerful
in a natural way. Such a medicine
is Baby's Own Tablets, which are
sold under an absolute guarantee
that they contain neither opiates nor
other harmful drugs. All mothers
who have used them for their little
ones speak of them in terms of warmest praise. Mrs. Albert Young,
Stratford, says : "My baby, who is
now five months old, has always
been very cross and peevish. She was
very constipated and sleepless. She
was a thin, delicate looking child,
and cried nearly all the time. I did
not know what to do with her. 1
tried several medicines, but they did
her no good. A friend who had used
Baby's Own Tablets advised me to
try thorn. I hid so, and since using
them baby hus been quite well, her
bowels are regular, und .she has
grown plump and good natured. 1
am delighted with the Tablets and
keep them on hnnd all the time, and
whenever baby gets cross and feverish I give her a tablet und she is nil

SvralloTcInsr Salt WateA
Ono of the most beneficial features of
a sea bath Is the salt water Inadvertently swallowed by bathers. It Is a
wonderful tonic for the liver, stomach
and kidneys. In many cases It will
cure biliousness when all drug preparations have fulled. It Is peculiarly effective In ordinary cases of Indigestion,
disordered stomach nnd Insomnia and
has been known to produce excellent
results ln many cases of dyspepsia.
Clean sea water Is full of tonic and
sedative properties. It won't hurt anybody. Indeed two or threo big swallows of It would be of positive benefit
to nine bathers out of ten. It is not,
of course, a palatable or tempting dose
to take, but neither is quinine or calomel. You seldom if ever see an old
Bailor who Is bilious or dyspeptic or a
victim to Insomnia, and why? For tho
•reason that nn ocean of good medicine
spreads all about his sky, and be doses
himself copiously with It whenever his
physical mechanism becomes tho least

Theater Aauilences.
Have you ever noticed that theater
audiences always assemble In tbe reverse order to tbe prices of admission?
Tho cheapest seats nre occupied first
and the most expensive ones last.
Tbose who go to tbo extreme bnck
upper perches are always on band before the doors nre open nnd wait wltb
heroic patience to be admitted. Those
wbo occupy tho seats a little lower In
position and a little higher lu price
come next. Then the balcony begins
to fill from the back downward, from
75 cents a sent ln the back rows,
through $1 and $1.50 to $2 down In
On the orchestra floor is tbe same
condition of affairs, those who occupy
the most expensive scats entering Just
before the curtain rises or shortly after
it Is up, while tbe boxes are usually
not occupied until tbe first act is well
under way.
"Commence" or "Begin.**
Commeuce or begin? Tho best writers, and the best speakers, also, prefer
"begin" to "commence" for nil everyday purposes. The reason for this preference Is not, as some have snid, that
"begin" Is older, for "commence" Is of
very respectable antiquity; nor is It,
as others have said, that "begin" is of
Anglo-Saxon origin, for words of
French or of Latin origin that bave
been fully adopted Into our language
are Just as good English as native
words. It Is rather that "begin" hns
the strength of simplicity, whereas
"commence" has fnlleu Into disrepute
from being associated with the cheap
finery of wiitlng.-Kllznbetb A. Withey

Often Found Himself Unable to Lie

—-Cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Arnprior, Ont., Feb. U.—(Special )-
A \evy remarkable cure of Backache
and Kidney Trouble hus just been
brought to notice at Basin Depot,
near here.
Wr. J. II. Martin suffered for over
eighteen years with Lame Duck so
that he actually couldn't walk or
lie down without onduriug the most
dreadful pain, He tried many medicines without getting relief, and was
very  much  discouraged.
Dodd's Kidney Pills wen' recommended to him und ho commenced ;■
treatment, and improved very frst
from tho first. As tlio treaUinmt
continued lhe improvenient Increased
until he was aide to go about his
work as well as ever.
The theory so often advanced tlmt
the kidneys are the most Important
organs of the body and that a large
percentage of tho sickness and pain
which humanity suffers, is due to
Imperfect kidney act Ion seems to bo
amply proven iu this particular cn:e,
for as soon as Dodd's Kidney Pills
regulated aud restored the natural
action of the kid»e\s all Mr, Martin's troubles left him at Once.
Muny remarkable cures by Dodd's
Kidney Tills have been published,
but certainly none as wonderful as
that of Mr. Martin.
He has written a long letter giving the facts of his case, und liis ruin m cement that he was alio i-*-
work (omfortably once mnru al'iev
such a prolonged period of suffering,
has started people wondering if there
is any case of Lame Back, Rheumatism or other Kidney Trouble that
Dodd's Kidney Pills will  not  cure.

It forms a kind of cement that Bticks

tar sets the victim's suffering begins.
lt contracts as It cools, anil every on.
of the little veins on the body Is pulled,
causing tho most exquisite agony. The
perspiration Is entirely stopped, and
unless the tnr Is removed death is certain to ensue.
But the removnl Is no easy task nud
requires several days. The tar cannot
be softened hy tbe application of heat
nnd must be peeled off bit by bit,
sweet oil being used to make the process less painful. TJie Irritation lo the
skin Is very grent, ns the hairs cannot
bo disengaged, but must lie pulled out
or cut off. No man can be cleaned of
tar In n siufflo day, ns the pain of Ibe

Tho most Important employment of

To meet tho possible dauger that
from any cause the current from the
dynamo might bo cut off, causing the
magnet to drop Its loud, It Is usual iu
well appointed plants to Install.a storage battery, which effectually guards
against such accident In handling
billets and material of convenient
shape a number of pieces may be picked up at ono time. The same Is true
of thin plates.
Tho type of magnets used In most
American works has a lifting capacity of live tons. It makes a stranger
nervous to see them at work, and lie
generally docs not need to be reminded
(hat unless bis life Is Insured nt Its

Coal   Land   Deal.
Froru the Herald— "~
Tbe large coal area near Blairmore in
which V. Hyde Baker of Cranbrook, and
T, G. Proctor and R. E. I'ishbuin ot
Nelson, are interested, has been secured
by eastern parties and active development work will be inaugurated at once.
The deal, it is understood, is a large one
and will give to these gentlemen ample
returns for their investment; in fact,
such a sum that will make them feel
good that they got into tbe coal land
Mr. Well's Work.
From the Herald—
Smith Curtis haa been asking aome
pointed questions of the finance minister
as to tbe revenues and appropriations
for different parts of the province. Aa a
result, the following showing was made
for East Kootenay:
The district as a whole contributed in
revenues during the year ending June 30,
1901, $98,876.14, tbe north riding giving
$14,714.37, and the south riding $77 941,-
27. There is a discrepency of $6220.60,
as this amount cannot with accuracy be
apportioned to either of the d'istricts.
But bere is 1 where the milk in the
cocoanut is shown. The north riding,
•■•presented by Hon. W. C. Wells, cabinet minister, man with a pull, etc., witb
revenues amounting to $14,714.27, receives for roads, trails and bridges, $28,-
646.65, while South East Kootenay, witb
revenues aggregating $77,941 27, gets in
return for such improvements, the paltry
sum of 815,703.90.-.
And yet tbe papera of that little bailiwick grew very indignant a few months
ago when The Herald stated in plaiu
language, that tbis riding, with, its vast
interests, its greater population and its
greater need, bad been discriminated
against by the Honorable Mr. Wells, iu
favor of his home riding.
Tbis year the same discrimination is
shown, siuce tbe two ridings, with re'
venues far from even, are given the
same amount in the appropriations, $14,-
500. It is such rauk work as this that
is disgusting the province with the
Dunsmuir outfit.
