R. MEYERHOFF, PROPRIETOR.
We are in m-elpt of a hulh-tin, published by the Gent Northern Kailwny,
Sfltirg forth llinwoiiilerfulpnssihilities
of ihe Colville Reservation as a fruil
and grain growing, and stork raining
country. Among the testimonials
I herein contained as to Ilie productive
ness of the soil we notice a letter from
Chi saw in which the wiitnr slates
that he has seen grown on tbe ranch
of Mr. Goodyear 2,000 bushels of outs
on 12 acres ol hind, which is an average of ICOij liiishels per acre. M'n
would lie vei y much pleased to hour
from Mr. Gnodyear on this matter
ns in win ilim- tin- i-i'pnit nf Ihis phenomenal yield is authentic or nnt?
Anoth"!' stali'inetit contained in the
snine litter is lhat it is no average
crop to cut one Inn per acre nf natural
bunch grass hay. As Mr. Goodyear
alsn cuts quantities nf this cniuuindity
We wnuld also like lu have his estimate
of the uveinge amount he cuts per
acre, for as his place is selected as producing the banner crops of oats, no
doubt his yield of bunch grass will
equal I Iml of any nther lamh. The
most surprising feature uf the leUcr is
lhat Mr. Goodynn's ranch, which is In
Biitish Columbia, should he quoted as
nn example of what can be pioduced
from .funning lands nn the north half
of the, Colville reservation in the Suite
of WashinKtoe. Why didn't th"
writer (online himself to at least the
State of Washington instead nf describing a much in Canada in order lo
advertise the lancbiiig possihilith'S of
the United Stales? Mr. Goodyear hns
a good ranch but it is doubtful if it
produeps the quantities of produce
quoted in the Great Northern Bulletin.
It is always better ill advertising a
country lo keep lo facts. Misrepie*
sentatinn may have Ihe effect of attracting a large number nf immigrants
hut it lacks lhe power of holding Ihem.
We have in Midway today many families, who. attracted hy Ihe fairy
stories told almut the wonderful resources of Ihe reservation, believ ing it
to be a prairie country, left iheir homes
in order to secure 1(H) acres of what
they supposed was ideal ranching land,
but lliuling thnl the country had been
misrepresented and unable lo obtain
employmcnl, came tn Midway, where
they are all doing fairly well. Others
disgusted wiih finding everything so
diffeient from what they expected
wenl buck to their old homes fiom
whii li they had been allured. Mad
th» Colville reset viti ion been pictured
to Ihese snine people as it really is,
there is Utile doubt hut that ihey
wnuld have remained and perhaps
done wall—for lhe country is certainly
capable of keeping a large nil 111 Iter of
families- hut their disappointment
gave way lo despair, with the result
thnt the country did nol look as gnod
to llii'in as it really was and in a mo-
ineni of great disappointment resolved
to leave it. The evils that result from
resorting to misrepresentation in order
to boom a connlry nre gnat, We Hnd
a in iu wirh a family living perhaps in
one nf the eaiterii stales innking a

RAILWAY   NEWS
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, itis an
investment.
For prices and terms apply to
THE MIDWAY COMPANY, Ltd LOCAL AND DISTRICT.

There is much in Ihis critic:-"! ,i the
modern snoh hy Lever I hat is worth
remeiuhering:
"With the laborer, the farmer, the
woodsman, and even the Indian. I can
live in daily, even hourly, companionship fnr an indefinite period of time,
and I can put up with as cnaise clothes, lie down on as mean a ttm], talk as
■hnppily and penui iously, think as
hiiuilily, hut I cannot, endure the well-
dressed u | ml art, devoid of hirth and
breeding, and Ihe continual quasi-
reflnement of the people of new made
wealth, nor the pretension of one who
feels that liy money he is the eqnal of
all and superior to most. Gentility is
a matter of hirth, breeding and education, hut not to lie purchased like potatoes and rn tillages across a counter, |
nor like pinchbeck wai rhes had from J
tbe hands of t he auctioneer."
