DISTRICT NOTES.
Two shifts ure lieing worked on the
Cariboo, Camp McKinney.
Mr. Wall if White Lake, is making ii success of strawberry raising.
Two large families have lately moved
into Grand Prairie, nnil the valley is
the richer by six young Indies.
Mr. Loyil Manley is canvassing with
a petition for a liquor license for the
new hotel al Grand Forks.
Until within the past few days the
weather has been very boisterous and
backward all over the lower country,
Ruin Is at present badly needed for
the crops throughout tho district, tho
spring having boon exceptionally dry.
Mr. Jus. Prathor bus taken up n preemption of Itid acres to the north of
Spring Station. He will commence
building thereon shortly.
Mr, Barclay Noad bus made permanent Improvements on the pro-einptloil
lately taken up by him between Kore-
nieos nnd White Luke, ami put iu a
corp.
There is u klootchnian on the Inka-
niecp reserve who is one hundred and
fifty years old. Well, she looks that
age anyhow. Iu fact she may lie older
for all wo know.
Mr. Louis Eholt and family returned
to the Lower Okanagan last week aftei
an absence of over an year. They are
staying on the Okanagan Smith place,
which it is stated Mr, Eholt has leased
or bought.
As a result of the event of the season
the round-up at Osoyoos, about two
thousand head of cattle are being
driven from the winter to the summer
ranges up the Siniilkameen. They are
looking well.
The water is beginning to rise in the
Okanagan river. It will he interesting
to watch the effect ou the approach to
the new bridge near Fairview when
the river rises really high. There are
many who prophesy that it will be all
washed away.
We have it on authority that the
C.P.R. lately charged $112 for moving
twenty-six tons of potatoes from Kelowna to Vernon, a distance of thirty-
six miles, It would be interesting to
know how much that same corporation
would charge on the same amount und
class of freight from Outario to Vancouver.
One hundred ounces of amalgum were
lakeu off the plates of the Camp McKinney mill last week from one and a
half day's run, Those who for years
past have been loud in their assertions
that there is no paying free-gold quartz
in this province, would do well to go to
Camp McKinney and have their eyes
opeued.
The advance party of immigrants
from Oregon, whose cattle were held
for a considerable time in quarantine at Osoyoos, travelled north and
camped within a few miles of Fairview
on Friday. They have with then) four
waggons and about seventy bead of
cattle and horses, and are making for
Kelowna. If suitable locations can be
found for them fifteen more families
will follow. Last week some of the
party went north with a view to securing same. They camped at Spring
station on their way up.
The Rev, Mr. Green, who for the
past year has been stationed al. Penticton, has received from Bishop Sillitoe
the iiieunilianey of the Vernon and
Enderby district, in succession to Rev.
Mr. Oulei'liridge, who has been appointed lo Vancouver, Mr. Green w
leave Penticton for Vernon in about
one month, where he will reside, The
Rav, Archdeacon McKay, formerly of
Prince Albert, N.W.T., and Donald,
B. (!., succeeds Mr. Green at Ponticton,
He will have under his charge the Mission valley as ivsll as the whole of the
lower country.
Mr. Cordiek, the locator of tbe Diana
ou Kruger mountain, and John Wackier, who have been doing development
work on Captain Adams' claims in that
district, were in Fairview on Saturday,
They report tliu Diana looking line,
free gold being plainly visible in tbe
quartz and carbonates taken out of flu:
open cut, and the ore proving well
right along. Mr. Ooi'dick ha* left f<
Nelson to meet dipt. Adams, who will
reach this district by ulioiil the first of
June. That gentleman also owns flic
following mines iu Kootenay: the
Britlyniart and iSbamlett, on Mount
Adams, near Sandon creek, and the
Bon Ton, iu Jackson Basin, in Slocan,
There is little doubt that the bounty
placed on coyotes by the Provincial
Government is beginning to have a
good effscL Large numbers have been
killed within the last, year. It would
surprise a stranger visiting Mr. Rich-
tar's ranch alone, which lies between
the Siniilkameen anil Ihe Okanagan
to note the number of skins piled up
there minus the scalp. The coyote
who could live anywhere within rifle
shot of the Ricbtar lioys would need
the special protection of providence or
a east iron skin.
An exhibit of farm produce and
fruit will lie sent from IlieSiiiiilkameen
valley to the Vernon show.
Mr. II. Anderson is adding two hundred and fifty fruit trees lo his present
orchard in the Siniilkameen,
The people of Vernon think It
cheaper to burn coal oil, which comes
from aeioss the line and helps to increase the revenue of the Dominion
Government hy nearly eight cents per
gallon, than to manufacture their own
light.
Work will, we understand, be rest 1 shortly on the Allison group of
mines near Oro, There is a small
steam slam]) mill on one of the claims.
Which paid well when working. This
ought to make Oro a lively place once
more,
Courts of Revision of the voters' list
will be held at Vernon, Lumby, Armstrong, Kelowna aud Osoyoos. None,
if appears, will be held anywhere in
the Keltic River district. Evidently
the people of that section are expected
to att 1 at Osoyoos, which is obviously absurd.
It is reported that Mr. E. P. Wheeler,
manager of the Bridgeport Mining Co.,
will recommence work shortly on Mineral Hill, near Conconully, The con •
pany owns several silver mines, which
have been shutdown since last November. Hoisting works and a Burley
drill will be put iu operation, and it is
expected that things will liven up
again in that section before long,
Considering the fact that the lower
country, especially the Siniilkaiiieen
valley, is far from a railway, and that
freight rates to a market arc very high,
it would be well for those who are setting out orchards iu this district to
plant fruits that can be evaporated, so
that their produce will stand a heavy
freight. It would also be advisable to
consider the fact that apples and such
hardy fruits can lie grown just as well
further north, where there are better
marketing facilities, whereas this section has the advantage over any other
portion of the province in the fact that
peaches, apricots and grapes will ripen
to perfection. These, together with
prunes, should be the best paying fruit
crop in this section.
CORRESPONDENCE,
The Okanagan Municipality question.
To the editor of Tub Advance :
Slit—I notice in your issue of 2flth
April an editorial comment on the doings of the White Valley people in
counteracting tho municipality move,
Our grounds for so acting were not
that we are opposed to municipalities,
We would certainly favor the change
were it plain lo us that we would derive benefit therefrom, but in our present condition we are of the opinion
that we arc better as we are for a
while. II cannot lie proven to us that
the great expense of making the contemplated new roads and completing
those already begun, besides keeping in
repair those already in use, can bo met
without a considerable Increase of our
present ratcof taxation. Could we sen
our way clear to make the much-
needed improvements at an early data
without, increasing our taxes we should
certainly go in for incorporation with,
out hardly a dissenting voice. Avery
liberal appropriation has been made
for this section for this year, and all
requests for Improvements have been
granted, and so Jong as this continues,
surely we have no reason to kick.
When we go in for incorporation we
hope we will be in a better position
than to be obliged to borrow $600 at
8 per cent, for three months, as one
" flourishing 1 municipality has fjona
lately.  Truly yours, Anil,
White Valley, May 8,18M,

We must remind our subscribers that

(lo so witboi|t delay.
For the past four or five years no
(juostlon has been more discussed in
(lie local legislature than the advisability of Hie provinno guaranteeing the
IkiiiiIs of branch railways and otherwise lending siilllcicut financial assist.
jince to insure their construction.
Many arguments havo been used, both
for and against tbe policy of the government iu this matter, and it is noteworthy that at the present time the
yS, Hi II. railway is being continually
piled as a line thai, has not secured sufficient, traffic to pay the interest on tbe
bonds guaranteed by the province. One
great factor has iippi|e|itly, however,
|ieeu almost entirely overlooked by
jioth parlies, and that is the question
pf freight rates. If lines, such as the
fl, & 0,, lire to be bqilt to all Intents
and purposes out of the public treasury, It is only right and just that the
public, who pay taxes to provide the
capita] or iiiu"i|i'jty, should have some
any in the matter of freight rates.
Before the S. k 0. was built the chief
argument used by the promoters was
(.but the lino would confer a great
lienefit on the entire province by providing tho Okanagan and tributary
Valley with transport facilities to reach
{.be const markets and the towns along
|,he main line to the east and in Hie
Northwest, and at the same time be
fJie means of providing the coast cities
^vlth produce now Imported into the
Iiroviuce from the east and across the
ine, thereby keeping a large amount
pf pwney in tbe province. "What, however, has been the result? The coast
|uarket is almost as difficult to reach
as before tho line was built, while the
Northwest trade has hardly been opened up at all, This is by no means because the Okaiagan district is incapable of producing what was claimed for
jt by the promoters of the line, but because the freight rates have been such
(■but the margin of profit on produce
raised in the district is almost entirely
consumed by the railway company,
fhereby offering prr inducements to
further production on the part of the
pwncr of the soil. If other lines are to
lie subsidized by the provincial government, the matter of freight rates
should lie settled before such subsidy
js granted, or the Hues would better
remain unbuilt. If the S. k 0. railway
has not paid the interest on bonds, it is
.solely because the freight rates in force
pjqtie It was opened up have been prohibitive, and for no other reason,
It is sjflperely to be hoped, considering the experience of past years, that
this season at least the directorate of
the Okanagan and Spallumcheen Agricultural society will make an effort to
have the date of the Vernon show settled at an early date, and also that
printed prize lists will he issued several tuqpths before the exhibition is
held, This can be done as easily now
aa within a few days of fair time, and
would give better opportunity for arranging minor details. There is little
pVitjht that much of tho ordinary con-
fwiftj} jjflfj rush, cap be avoided by the
rtllnption of such a course, A part from
this fact, if the prize lists are issued at
ftt| (Jiirly (late, better opportunity will
(hi (lifqrdcd fur growing special exhibits. It is nlsn to be desired that this
year tho secretary will not be left to do
fJiree parts of the work, but that the
various directors who are scattered
throughout tho district will literally
jjiku dhargo of the sections of the
pomitry whicli they represent in the
matter of eolloctiqg membership fees
and securing exhibits, if the people
pf the Upper Okanagan wish their
friends down south to take any Interest in Hip matter they must, give apme
pvidoqce of uotjvity themselves, There
|s nothing to lie gained by leaving
everything to the last impute.

betting on the principal event appeal's
very even. Both horses are now being
trained. .

regretted by everybody at Fairview,
where he has been extremely popular
with all classes.
James Grant, whose Klootchman
raised such a disturbance in tho camp
and was arrested on a warrant last
week charging him with threatening
to shoot J. Anderson, managed to escape from custody while being taken
from Fairview to Osoyoos by Mr. H.
Rose, Both men were on horseback,
the prisoner not being tied or secured
in any way, Rose's horse being the better of the two. On the way down
Grant asked to be allowed to go to the
1 ukameep reserve to see his Klootchman,and Rose consented. The Okanii'
gan river was crossed at Keselinda
creek, the prisoner being made to ford
gome few yards ahead, and while in
the water the "special's" horse began
to buck and attempted to run away.'
Grant seeing this, took advantage of
the opportunity to disappear in the
bush on the east side of the river,
'■! where he evidently hid for some time.
Mr. Rcse searched around for some
time and then went on to Camp McKinney and Sidley's, thinking he might
have crorsed the line that way, but
without finding any trace of his man,
He evidently rode over the bolder the
game night, as he was well acquainted
with every trail in the country. This

Mr. DePangy has returhed to Okanagan Falls, and it is bis intention to
erect afine hotel at this point shortly.
Other parties will be building there
also, and those who formerly scoffed at
the idea of this being a point of importance, may yet live to see the time
when the place will be referred to as
Okanagan Falls, and not Dog Town, as
at present,
Mr. E. M. Skinner, D.L. S., iscamped
with a party of men at Penticton. He
intends surveying some portions of

that place, after which the party will'
proceed to the Siniilkameen, and
thence on to the Nicola, to correct and
complete the survey of Iudian reserves

Kelowna, we are glad to hear, will
celebrate the Queen's birthday. A
cricket match will be played between
Kelowna and Trout Creek, which will
begin at 11 a. m. In the evening a
grand concert will take place in the
school house in aid of the funds of the
cricket club. .There is no better place
in the entire district than Kelowna " to
spend a happy day," and all those who
can possibly tuke in these events
should make a point of attending,
Mr. L, Holman has between two and
three acres planted out in tobacco near
Kelowna. He has set the plants out in
tbreeTdilferent places to test the vari
ous soils. Mr. Holman is an experienced hand at tobacco culture, aud is
very sanguine that he can make a sue,
cess of growing the nicotian weed in
the Mission valley. Thus another in'
dilstry may be added to those started
recently in tbe garden spot of B, 0.
Diver Anderson has got his apparatus in working order and as soon as
the water in the Siniilkameen falls to
its normal depth he will resume oper
aliens where he left off last fall. His
success will depend alone on the
amount of pay gravel he cuu send up,
With two assistants lust fall he sent
up enough gravel in two hours to pan
out $12.50, aud he says there are undoubtedly potholes in which are thousands of dollaus, and means to give the
rich river from Shaker Bend to the
falls a thorough prospecting this sum-
mor. Over $3,000,000 have been taken
out of that river hy rockers and long
toins and the bod and channel of the
stream has not been touched,—Loomiston Journal.
The mining properties at Greenwood
camp recently purchased for eastern
parties by W, T. Thompson are going
to have development work commenced
on them at once, instructions having
been received to open up the veins,
The Greenwood properties are among
the largest gold-bearing properties,
from surface indications on tlie continent. Some of the ledges lire seventy
feet in width and running high in gold,
also carrying a large percentage iu
copper. The properties at Dead wood,
Atwood's, Summit, and White's camps
are also gold-bearing copper oro in
large bodies. This distript, owing to
its newness, is hardly known to tli
outside world, but will be before long^
Now, that the new Government road
opening up the country passes thrqyigh
the camps, miners can ship their pre to
better advantage than formerly, many
having already realized considerable
money by snipping it out on horseback,   Jn fact, ut tlie present time,
some claims are working and shipping
ore out constantly for treatment that
way.
Mr. S. S. Ray, who purchased the
Bouvette property, near Kelowna, has
returned from Calgary with his family. He brought with him a fine herd
of milch cows.
Mr. Thornton, better known to his
friends as "Jolly Jack," is still working ou bis placer claim at the mouth of
Norwegian Gulch, near Boundary Falls.
He is talcing out considerable color.
Numbers of men out of work from
across the line arc making their way
through Kettle River in the hope of
striking a job on the new road. They
all manage to take the country in on
horseback, though they are hard up.
Mr. Schubrt has a few men repairing
the road between Fairview and Penticton. This is commendable, as by the
removal of loose rock and other obstructions travel is very much facilitated,
Mr. F. Ruckle, of Kettle River, lost
the valuable Clydesdale stallion last
week that he purchased of Mr. Price
Ellison, of Vernon. The animal, which
was quite well apparently the day before, was found dead in the stable in
the morning. It had taken several
prizes at the Vernon show.

Grand Prairie, May 10.—Mr.
Cooker, manager of the Skylark mine,
passed through the valley Monday on
his way to Spokane Falls, He says
the mine is looking fine. They are at
present working on a seventeen-inch
vein of high grade ore. As soon as
the trail will admit of it a pack train
will lie put on and the company will
commence shipping the ore to Tacoma.
I will have to give Jack Farell credit
for the first strike of the season. It is

White Valley, April 15.—Crops
are nearly all in.
Road gangs are at work in the valley
making much needed improvements.
Mr. A, Carr met with a runaway
accident last week, and sustained injuries that will lay him up for a few
weeks.
Our new storekeepers, Messrs. Mc-
Uvaine & Ellis, arc filling their shelves
with a well assorted stock that is already being much appreciated.
The buzz of the sawmill is now heard,
having at last made it start on the season's cut, after a protracted period of
renovating, repairing, altering, &c,
Mr. A, M. Seed is winding up bis
business iu this locality, preparatory to
moving to Armstrong, where he will
make his home in the future. His family have preceded him.
We have reason to expect an unusually high rise of water m the streams
this summer. The great amount of
snow in the mountains has nut as yet
been alfected by very warm weather,
and a sudden spell of hot weather just
now will cause a rise that may overflow the banks.
Copies of voters' lists are now in the
hands of everyliody, and frequent expressions of surpriso are heard that
names, sent in three months ago, are
not found thereon. Some names appear in as many as four places, in as
many places of residence, and as many
occupations, We are glad to know
that the collector for the district will
be around in the different settlements
to hear claims of non-registered voters.
Several new settlers have arrived
from Manitoba, having been driven
therefrom by the cold winters peculiar
to Jack Frost's paradise.
Several large bears have been seen
in the neighborhood lately.
We are anxious to hear who tho candidates are to be for the coming elections. We beard last week that a
meeting was to have been held iu Lumby to appoint three delegates from
this section to attend a convention of
delegates from other sections for the
purposo of deciding on an opposition
candidate, hut nothing lias been heard
of the matter since. Things must come
to a focus soon now.
Camp McKinney.
The sawmill is now running full
blast ut Camp McKinney cutting lumber for thestamptuill building. The mill
made a very satisfactory run from tho
20th of April till last Saturday, when
it temporarily shut down, in order that
the ore bin and mill building might be
erected. Hitherto the stamps have
been working on an unprotected foundation iu the open air. A second run
will commence to-morrow and it is not
expected that the mill will be closed
down again all summer. The Cariboo
and Amelia company arc drifting and
sinking on the main ledge and taking
out ore.
Messrs, King and Monaban are now
in Spokane, and Mr. Cronin is acting
us the company's superintendent.
The camp has had a number of visitors lately, most of whom havo gone in

When   Most   l.lkely   to   be   Neglected-
Sample   System-Hesillts,
In many placos where a farmer has
accumulated more land than ho can cultivate, ur whore ho wishes to retire from
Active labor, it is necessary that he rent
his land. Often the son does not follow
the calling of the fatbor, and although
this is, in many ways, an undesirable
atiite of affairs, it is hero anil must bo
mot. A renter naturally wants to crop
the land so as to get the most money
from it without much regard to the
effects on tho soil. Especially is this
true where changes of tenants occur
every year or two. For example, in
tho wheat belt it usually pays a
renter to raise wheat to the ex-
clusiou of most small graina, grasses and
clovers. For this reason he will insist
upon planting wheat again and again
upon tiie anine field, alternating
occasionally with oats. The only
possible way to prevent great damage
being done in this way is fur the landowner to plan out a rotation, divide bis
farm into fields ami euoh year designate
which shall he put ill oata, com, wheat,
clover, meadows, pastures, etc, A
neglect of this has caused niinya farm
on rich noil to beoouio prematurely old
—yielding amnller crops of poorer quality than might bo expected, A
specific understanding concerning the
euro and disposition of manure ought always to bo considered. While every
fanner must plan his rotation to suit
his own conditions, the following may
he suggestive to thoso living in the corn
:ielt: Starting with corn laud sow to
oats, following with wheat, On wheat
sow rod clovor or a mixture of grasses
which can be left two years if desired.
After unii year or the same autumn if
preferred, plowing under the crop
which pn'* up in tbe whoat stubble
will Iw very advantageous. Follow the
clover with coru, never raising more
thnn two crops in succession, Whure
meadows and pastures aro wanted, pro
vision must bo made for tbeui in tho
rotation. If root*, potatoes, etc., aro a
farm crop put thorn ou tho oats
stubble. This crop puts the ground
in ojflolleut shatio for wheat which
should go oa the land the third
year. If wheat is not to be grown on
the farm, simply drop it out of tho list
and let ths remainder of tho.
rotation stand. In tbo first case
mentions! (without roots) tbe ino-
cessluu will be as follows: Outs, 1 year;
wheat, 1 year: clover or mixed grasses,
I or 2 years; com, 2 years, thus making
a live orsixyearrotatioii, In the second
case (where root crops are grown) treat
ax fellows: Oats, 1 year; roots, 1 year;
wheat, 1 year; clover or mixed grasses,
I or 2 years: coru, 2 years, making a Bix
or seven year rotation. Where tho
above or some similar plan, adapted to
existing conditions with propur core and
application of manuro made on tlie land,
are obnerved the native fertility of
trie aoil will practically remain un-
diminished, The writer knows of a
number of farms managed after this
;,!an which, as far as can be determined, are, after 20 years of cultivation, almost as rich as when first tilled and this
too without application of commercial
fertilizer. As stated before, farms aro
oiost apt to deteriorate when rented,
out many a land owner himself ought
to look mure carefully to a proper rotation. Draw a map of your farm as it
now Is and gradually arrange matters
so that nil tne land can be regularly
changed, putting into Binall grain and
clover those fields which have been

THE  FARM  KETTLE,
Some Word,  of   Advice Concerning  Location and  Protection.
One of tho necessities upon n farm is
a act kettle for boiling food for hogs,
hens aud other stock. It is often impossible to locnto this within ono of the
farm bnildings, and so the necessity
arises of building a brick foundation

for the kottle out of doors. Suoh a
kettlo should lie protected from the
weathnr, for, if it is uot, the kettlo is
soon rusted, and the bricks become
'oosened by the entrance of water from
die ton. A good protection is shown in
tho illustration. The corner uprights
are secured to the brickwork by iron
strnpi, one aide and tho front of the
wooden structure being liingod at the
top, allowing free access to the kettlo.
This useful contrivance will lie more
"onreiiieut if the top of tbo structure in
•vhieli tliu kettle is set bo of one complete
dab uf stone, slate orsoapstone, but this
Il not at all necessary.—American Agriculturist.
Kye a. Green Manure,
Rye la not considered of any great value as green manure far plowing under.
It ia worth but little more than straw
would be, but it is bettor than nothing
'onietinies. The practice of green man
uriiigis not so well adapted for poor
soils as for those in bettor condition, as
the effect on the laud is In proportion
to the value of the crop turned under,
riiua, it is bettor for tho preservation
of fertility than for restoring it when
ihe land has been exhausted. It gives
nothing to the toil but what is taken
.'roin it, oxcept whatever may be taken
from the atmosphere.
Helpful Hints,
In making up nnbleaohed muslin allow one inch to the yard.
To keep polished steel from ruating
whon not in use, rub it over with sweet
oil.
Equal parts of iweet oil and llmo will

STERILIZING MILK-
A Simple Method of Ile.trorlng Germs lat
Milk Used fur Table l;.e,
The sterilization of milk, now quite
extensively pruciicej in order to destroy
the injurious genus which it may contain, can bo satisfactorily accomplished
with very simple apparatus. Tlie vessel
containing milk, winch may tie the bottle from which it is to be used or any
other suitable vessel, Ib placed Inside of
a linger vessel of metal, which contains
the water. If a bottle, it is plugged
with absorbent cotton, if this is at hand,
or in its absence other clean cotton will
answer, A small fruit jar, loosely
covered, may be used instead of a little. The requirements aro simply that
the interior vessel shall lie raised about
half an inch above the bottom of tbo
other, aud that the water shall reach as
high as the milk. Tho apparatus is
then honied on a range or stove until
tho water reaches a temperature of 155
degrees Fahrenheit, whon it ia removed from the heat and kept tightly
covered for half an hour. The milk bottles are then takou out sod kept in a cool
place, The milk niay bo used any time
within twenty-four hours, A temperature of 150 degress maintained for half
au hour is sufficient to destroy any germs
likely to lie present iu the milk, and it Is
found in practice that raining the temperature to 155 degrees aud tlion allowing it to Bland in the heated water for
half an hour Insures the proper temperature for the required time. Tho toiii|ior-
ature should not be raised above 158 degrees, otherwise tho taste and quality of
the milk will bo seriously impaired,
The simplest plan is to take a tin pail
and iiivnrt a perforated tin j»o plato la
the bottom, or havo made for It are-
movable false bottom perforated with
holes and having legs half an iuch high,
to allow circulation   of the   water,
A milk srauiuzni.
Tlie milk bottle is set on this false
bottom, aud sufficient water is put
into the pail to reach the level of tho
surface of the milk in the bottle. A
hole may be punched in the cover of the
pail, a cork Inserted, and a clioinical
thermometer put through tho cork, so
that the bulb dips into the water. The
temperature can Unu be watched without removing the cover. If preferred,
an ordinary dairy thermometer may bo
used and the temperature tested from
time to time by removing the lid. This
is very easily arranged, and is just as
satisfactory as the patented apparatus
Bold for tho same purpose, The accompanying illustrations shows the form of
apparatus described, and recommended
by the United Status Department of
Agriculture.
Success In Unlrrtng,
Success in dairying depends In a very
largo measure upon the individual effort
of the dairyman. Unless hu puts skill
and intelligence Into the business by
selecting the proper cow, providing her
with tho proper food, and giving her his
bo.,t attention, be cannot expect to reap
a vory large profit out of his investment,
Too many patrons of our cheese factories carry on the dairy branch of their
fanning operations in a sort of haphazard way, and then coudoiun the business because it docs not return them a
handsome profit.
It pays to keep a good cow or nono. It
is surprising how many poor cowa are
kept in some of onr oldest dairy districts
by moil of long ex|K.fiuiico. In many
factories last season whore ono patron
would realize $15.00 per cow for the season, his neighbor would only realize
(,25.00. This is due nearly altogether to
the good judgment and superior intelligence of I he 115.00 man in selecting and
feeding his cows, as compared with tho
lack oi good judgment and carelessness
on the purl of the $.15.00 man.
It costs on an average about $88.00 or
$30.00 to keep a cow during a year, and
about half of the cows kupt by the average dairymen give in return for this ox,
ponditurc about $110 00 per annum, ami
a great number come far short of this
amount. This means that there are
numbers of cows that might as well bo
taken tu the butcher's "block," for all
the benefit they are to their owners, If
it were pointed out to a farmer that his
hired mail, for example, was uot worth
bis board or the wages he was receiving,
the farmer would simply rise up in his
wrath und get more work uut uf Hint
uiau, or give him theG.Ii, Why should
uot as much good sense nnd superior
judgment be shown in dealing with tin,
cow that does not pay for ner keepl
The profit in any business ia not nl,
ways at tlie market end of the concern,
but at the home end. Tbe profit il'l'
ponds iqion the difference oulwooll the
cost of production and the price obtain,
ed. Therefore, tho man who ciui produce goods the cheapest la going to reap
the largest profit. The logic will apply
especially to the business of fanning,
and particularly dairying, aa the market price of dairy products does uot vary
considerably in comparing one season
with another. -Farmers' Advocate.
I)alr7 Suggestions,
If you have never churned granulated
buttor it time to begin,
Canada forbids the adulteration of
cheese, and Canada is right,
If the cows are "home grown" and
are not geutle it is apt tQ be tbe owner's
fault,
It never Inoreasei the milk supply to
pitch milk stools at tbe cows or swear
at them.
If you mean to make a success of
dairying this winter, believe yoa cart
and go ahead.
At the price of feed and milk this sea.
ion it will uot pay to feed poor cowa—
it never does.
Perhaps one of the things needed
about your place is an icehouse; if so,
do not wait till the crop is wasted before
building the house,
Look out for the man that wants to
sell you the "right" to get more butter
uut of the milk than the cow put in it,
Take the right to gut out all there it iu
It, but pay no royalty for ijypjg ft, ..iulc v ancy NU135.

White Valley, May 10, -Heavy
gales and storms prevailed all last
week, somewhat retarding vegetation ;
but warmer and more pleasant weather
has now set in, much, no doubt, to the
great delight of the lively mosquito
that now buzzes as of yore.
Mr. Louis Christian, with bis road
gang, is now making much needed Improvements in tile roads. Much has In
be done up Ibis way this summer, and
the larger the gang tbo more Unit will
be accomplished,
It is a slgular fact that of fifty-five
names sent in from Lumby for voters'
registration  on  tlie old forms,  nunc
appear on the list whicli appeared as
a supplement to tbe last issue of the
Vernon News, These iianies are now,
I believe, iu the hands of Mr, Cochrane, the collector. Names that were
sent In In the beginning of last February still remain unregistered, ami ibis
fact caiisoH many til believe that there
|s a screw loose somewhere, It is noticed that, in flic published list, one
man's niiiiiii appears four times, each
film' hailing from a ilill'i ri'iit place aud
having a different occupation, "Material assistance," as pot' ad., certainly
will bo needed to rectify those mistakes,
A trip through the now town of
Lumby lately, revealed ttgroat amount
of Improvements since lust year, Several new buildings have been erected,
ncnt picket, fences (whitewashed) and
Cosy gardens, extensive clearings, &c,
denote thrift and industry on the pari
of tho Inhabitants, The latest fad is
sidewalks that are about to be laid.
The Ram's Horn Hotel looms up grandly over the surrounding buildings with
Its flag proudly floating from the tall
flagstaff.
Mr. A. M. Seed 1ms sold out his stock
of goods and property to Messrs. S.
Mcllvnine and W. 0. Ellis, who have
lately arived from Manitoba, These
gentlemen are getting in an extensive
general stock, and will do a general
trading business. Messrs. Mcllvaine
and Ellis have also purchased the Bas-
settc sawmill. The former gentleman
|s au experienced sawmill man, and I
tiavc not the least doubt, judging by
the vigor and enterprise already displayed, that their presence ere will
be a great benefit to the town and uur-
rounding country, where we need men
with money and push.
We have reason to expect shortly a
visit from Hon. F. G. Vernon and a
pumbcr of satellites, A political meeting will lie held, and the long pent up
feelings of tlie populace will ho given
(in opportunity fur an airing.
Wc have been promised a polling
place at Lumby, and since the promise
was made I hoar that no stops have
linen taken, or no prospect appears of
pur having the same, Should Ibis be
the case it large number of votes will
be lost, as the distance to Vernon is too
great fur tlie majority of the people
here.
The recent high winds threw a considerable number of trees in the roads,
pausing a serious impediment to traffic,
but by this time roads arc all clear
again.
Til'.: repairs made to the Bassette
sawmill, which occupied the. time of
several men fur a period uf about two
piontlis, havo not proved a success, All
this work lias been a dead loss. The
services of a competent millwright, in
the person of Mr. James Pcarcy, of
Vernon, have been secured, and ere long
tjie (ild mill will be buzzing as of yurc
There Is a scarcity of iinulicr at present in the valley, and the operation of
Olir local mill is eagerly looked forward to.

Kelov/na Notes.
(From our own Qorresnonuont)
KELOWNA, May 11.—The town was
on the tip toe of expectancy when it
wits announced on Wednesday last that
President Van Home, of the C.P.R,
with his party, would arrive on the
.S.tt. Aberdeen, The boat made a special trip for the occasion, returning to
Vernon the same day. Among the
party were the president, vice-president i Mr. Peterson, chief engineer;
Mr, Gamble, engineer Pacific division;
II. Abbott,, siipi'i'iiiti'iiildiil, Vancouver ; H, Mnrpolo, superintendent, Don-
ald; Mr. Thos. Skinner, of London,
England, director of the O.P.R., also
of tho Hudson's Hay Oo,, of the Canada Northwest Land Co., uf Iho cum
niercial Company, nnd one of the Mug
lish directors uf tho Hunk of Montreal
Col, Sir Oltslllllr (Izuwski, A. S, 0, to
Queen; 11. L, Kr.skiiic and Hubert
,1,'ilfray of Toronto; (.'. 0. Ohlpnian, of
the Hudson's Hay Co,; L. Govott and
Mr, Ceo. Kariar, of Londoni A. A.
Allan, jr., of Montreal, and Graham
Drinkwater, sun of Mr. Olios, Drink-
water, secretary of the O.P.R., and
others, After a short stay hero the
boat proceeded to PenUcl.un, returning
about 9 p. in. The party expressed
themselves highly pleased with the excursion, this being the first visit of
many of thorn to this section of the
country.
A new wharf, much larger than the
present one, is promised by the C.P.R.,
and work will be commenced at an
early day,
Mr, Ohas. Gunscholti has sold his
ranch of nearly !i00 acres,located about
a mile from the Mission, to Messrs.
Atwood and Barlee, of this place, and
tho latter gentleman will take up his
resilience immediately on the new property.
Mr. B. Lequime started Inst, week
with about throe hundred bead of cattle, to drive, thorn to Nicola, having
sold them to tho !!. 0. Cattle Co. This
is the first sate made in the valley this
season, but it is said the R. 0. Mission
will soil the same parties about one
hundred head.
The road question is now awakening
a good deal of interest, A new road
was gazetted last spring, starting from
the Mission road at Mr. Dell's corner,
running west until it meets the old
road at the back of the old Lefevre
ranch, which was purchased by Mr.
McKay, This was a short road to Kelowna, and was quit© satisfactory to all
but the few, very few. Mr, McKay
objected to it) however*, nnd bis agent
was notified that if he would open a
road from Hell's corner to his east line,
thence across the creek, north, following Mr, Crozler's line to intersect the
short-cut valley rami, then due west
along tliu north side of Mr, Dundas'
property, lie could close up tho old
one. This would make about one mile
and a half difference to those ranchers
living north of M,r. Pell, that part of
the valley where must of tho grain is
raised, and is by far tho pftsier road to
build. Mr, McKay's agent has onscv.
civil occasions closed up the gazetted
road, and the constable hero ru-jipcncd
it. There is nu knowing when it maybe closed again, Only last week il was
closed up wit bunt any notification, and
caused much inconvenience to several
parties in tho valley. A truck, with a
loud of buy, was coming over the old
way just as the agent was again closing if, and the driver was told he could
go through this time, " but not to do it
again." Some indies were out driving
and thought, to jijiss that way to the
Mission, but found the road closed, and
were obliged to turn back and go all
the wii.v.'ii'oiuidbyHcnvoiiliii.makiiiga
difference of nearly two miles. Surely
something should' be done whereby
people could know which road to take,
but, just now it is (I little like tlie
" Arkansas Traveller," whichever road
one takes, one wishes be hail taken the
other, The present diversion of the
road necessitates crossing Uto creek,
without a bridge, which, is practicable
now, but. when (here is high water,
whicli will be in the near future, every-
one will have to go by Houvoiilin.
A riirduad uf baled hay was shipped
by Air. Itiilcliesnn last, week to Revel-
stoke, nnd nimtlpn' car-loud is almost
ready for shipment, and will go up iu
a (lay or two.
A few of the hop-growers are forming a cojupiiny lo build a drying kiln,
under I be name of flic " Okauagnu Hop
Co." The parties principally con-
corned arc Messrs. Oiinkling, Holland
lliibson k Lysoiis, They jptoud, tucoin-
np'iico the establishment at once.
There can belittle doubt that the
hope of the Lowf-V country I'fll in its
mineral resource*, The Okanagan,
Slmllknmeep and Kettle river valleys,
if utilized t'l their fiill extent, would
certainly nuik second to no other agricultural districts in the province; still,
as things p,ti\v stmul, under the system
uf large holdings, no groat, change can
be expected to take place until this
section is toied by a railway. The
groat future of the country (ns for the
whole of B, 0.) lies in (Jac development
nf its natural mineral Wealth., which
must, nf necessity bring in n sufllc'enljy
large population to furnish Iholnnd-
holdoi'with a near, ready and natural
market for a'ny crops or produce be
can raise, Until such takes place, or
the district obtains better freighting
facilities Hum at present, the Lower
Okanagan will produce little e'se than
the wild and wolly steer and the cupri-
ciotis caviisc.
This new town affords the best and safest investments to be found in British Columbia.
