The Kootenay Central Railway bill has passed its third  reading in the Dominion as well  as the Provincial Legislature.  The construction of this north  and south railway through the  Kootenay valley will be the  means of opening up the vast  mineral areas of South East  Kootenay.  *      *      * a  , The promoters of the Kootenay Central Railway  Company,  who have provided the necessary-  means,  and ���who' have ��� so carefully-watched and steered its ap-  < plication for a 'charter, so successfully through the  Dominion  'and Provincial Legislatures, are  to  be   congratulated  upon   the  success which has attended their  efforts.  *      *      *x-  Extensive mining operations  and development will be carried  on all over Fort Steele district,  and preparations are being made  all along the valley, for shipments of ore upon the completion of the Kootenay Central  Railway.  dents of fanning districls and  mountain mining'camps a small  but choice library ati no expense  lo the reader, and it has proved  most successful. It is expected  that a further appropriation will  be made al this session of the  legislature for ihe purpose of increasing the number and variety  of books designed for circulation.  So far but very few of the,  farming communities and mining-  towns of the interior have taken  advantage ' of the opportunity  ottered by the government for  securing a free public library  and it is' the purpose of this  article to call this fact to the  attention of our readers, aud to  point out that the residents of  Fort. Steele should at once set  about 'procuring, one of these  libraries, convinced as we are  that it would 'prove of great  value to the community, as -a  source of pleasure and prolit lo  our people.  E. O. S. Scholelield, provincial librarian, Victoria, has  charge of the'3libraries, and ,to  whom all com mimical ions on ihe  subject should ,be addressed.  Twenty-live male residents of  any community, after electing a  trustee who \\cill be held responsible for the books to tho amount  o��$a0. may make applicationfor  a case of. books. These case's  contain 100"volumes bv standard  authors, aud comprise works on ���  social and natural science, liter-'  ature,   historv. ' biosiaphv   and,'  ,, �����- ��� * i} i e  fiction.    Works ou technical sub-1  jects of  interest  to the locality j  are also included. n   Within   twoj  or three weeks after application  is made the'case will be received  by  the' local   librarian,   whb  is  chosen by the .applicants.     The  case will be allowed to remain in  the'one locality for six   months,-  when directions for its shipment  to  some  other   point will bo re-'(  ceived, and another case will be  received iu'ifs place.     There* is  absolutely no charge for--the use  of ��� the books;   and, the;'C. P. R.  ever desirous of promoting  the  welfare    and'    comfort    of   the'  people" living   in   the    remoter  parts of the province are  realizing that transportation   charges  in some cases prevent their  tak-  00&0$  ^M��  ^ ���?(-?*((?

The provincial government always anxious to give the residents and settlers in out of the  way places some of ihe advantages enjoyed by urbanites, has  been to great pains and considerable expense to extend the  travelling library system founded some three years ago, and  there arc now 24 libraries of 100  voiurnns each in circulation,  from the west coast of the island  to the 150-mile House.

A Word From a Friend,  "f cannot imagine llii.s  spiril-  ���    tial life and 1 his spirit uul   world  of   which   you   speak,'' , said   a  sleep! ic to one  of Christ's witnesses.      "Can  the-mudfish understand  tlio   language   of   tho  heron" was the reply.   \'He lives  at the bottom of his  black,   turbid pond.    His world , is  water,  mud and worms.      Ue  was born  there, has lived (hero all his life,  he will probably die there and in  the,same   darkened    condition,  suppose  someone  could   go lo  him and tell him  that  up  above  the surface of'his pond' there  is  a. bright and beautiful   world,   a  world' of air and   sunshine,   of  trees and llowers  and   feathered  creatures   tilling   the   ai.r_-j with  sweet musical sounds; would the  mudfish bo able to understand or  imagine such a realm  of  nature  and a condition so foreign to his  own surroundings':*    T think not.  -1 fancy I hear hi in reply: '���Well,  ��� '  I have a fair..knowledge' of  mv  a    'own   surroundings,   1   have  es-  ���i ^  pccially studied mud, .worms and  slime. I know all about'them:  - my reasoning facilities have  powei1 to grasp natural things  ,but this world above the surface  of my pond is unreal to me and  1 believe it. to be a myth formed  iiuyour own imagination.  Tho  mudfish   would   be fpiitc  right iii Iiis reasonings,   for  the  natural cannot grasp the  spiritual.
