In the Geneva Presbyterian Church,
when the pastor, Rev, James Dewar,

A reception was held at the Manse.
The bride's twin nephew and niece,

V.I., scattered roses from dainty rose
baskets fon the bridal party from tho
Church to the Manse. The rooms were
beautifully decorated, and the bride
and groom received a large crowd
under a rose bower and white petal
bell. It would be difficult to name
the many fiilends and relatives ana
their plfts, as there are very tf.w
Agassiz people who would not be Included. Her mother Baying on one occasion, "Sho ls a very lucky girl; but
rather, Miss Margaret has endeared
herself to many hearts with her
charming personality, bo he is a very
lucky man who has won her affection.

SCHOOL BOARD
IN SESSION
A meeting of the School Board was
held In the Central School on Saturday last, Miss Dorothy Laxton and
Mrs, R. Elsey tendered their resign
ations, which were accepted with
much regret.
Commu nlcat Ions were read from
the Dept. of Elementary Agricultural
Education, Victoria, giving the con
ditlons on which it will give assistance in levelling the grounds, also
from the Department of Indian Affairs re the deed of the Harrison Mills
School  site,
As the teachers of Divisions 3 ond
4 were leaving, and as their salaries
were Inc; eased about a year ago because of their efficient services, It
was decided to reduce the salaries of
those divisions to f900 per annum. *
The Board decided to paint the
schools during the holidays, and to
fix up the stairs, In fact, generally,
•lean up. The Board thinks more
room is needed on the grounds, a.nd
if another acre could be procured
reasonably, it would give the young
people  a  first class  ball  ground.
The Board considers the people, especially the village oitizens, should
assist In every way to make this an
accomplished fact as soon as possible,
because the acre in view may not long
be  for  sale,

A party of local sportsmen consist
ing of Bert Horwell, Walter Whelpton
wlarenco McDonald, Fred Wilson Fred
KidHon, and Jim MacCauley, went to
Harrison Lake in search of trout, and
unlike Peter of old, they toiled all day
and "caught the limit," which means
they enjoyed excellentf ishlng amongst
the Kamloops trout, which ran from
6 to 8 lbs. dressed. No doubt there
were much larger ones hooked, but.
unfortunately, they got off. Some
must have weighed 20 lbs, Walter
Whelpton is recognised as being most
fortunate with the big fish, but Bert
is often very unfortunate In his choice
of hooks.

ll was a happy company. All wero
enjoying lo (hi- lull tlio hour of social
time they were having, till tlio sounds
ol' music I'roni the house invited them
Inside to tin' revelry of lhe dunce.
Gathering Into the large living room,
now cleared ol all obstructions, they
saw the violinist, or as he was called.
the "fiddler," enthroned on a chair sot
on top of tlio dining room table,
which was pushed lo ono corner ot the
room, busily engaged in tuning his
violin, or "fiddle,"'for the Orsl dance.
On rough benches along the sides and
ends or lhe room, the women and girls
were sitting in joyous anticipation of
their first dance in many moons.
Soon the worn was given, "All set,"
and lho fiddler started off witli the
tune of, "The girl 1 left behind me."
Then a (all lanky young man, with a
thick shock ot black hair, whose rebellious locks were smoothed down lo
a shiny surface by a profusion of hair
oil, arose beside the fiddler's stand.
First smoothing down wiih his hand
lhe wave of hair lhat adorned his
brow, he then called off in a nasal
tone to the swing and lime of the
music: "Chose partners for an eiglu-
liand reel."
Ronald was looked upon by the
young men prccnt, somewhat in the
light of a hero, not so much because
ot rescuing Miss Eraser, but more on
account ol his escapade in "stealing"
Hie horses of tlie horse thieves. This
particular achievement appealed
strongly to their sense of humor. Now
desiring to escape their Importunities,
he advanced into the room to claim
lho first dance from the daughter or
the house. Jn this, however, he was
forestalled by Ihe handsome Sergt.
.Melvin, whom he mel leading her iu
triumph .0 the head of th" nrsl set.
Without showing his sense of disappointment, ho chose for his parlner a
Mrs. Mc'l'avish. one of lhe sprightly
married women present, and led her
to a place at tho head set also. The
word again given, "all set," the self-
conscious floor manager, witli a happy
sense of musical time, twanged off his
nasal calls, sel to the lime and tune
of the violin, Gaily the dance wont
on; joyously tin* dancers circled
round; bowed to their partners; "the
corners the same"; "grand right and
left. and. swing wllh Ihe girl behind
you." Pleasure radiated from Ihe
beaming countenances of the dancers
as Ihey manoeuvred through lhe set io
Ihe time of Hie music and tho rhythm
of the nasal calls of the floor master,
ill! ihey all promenaded io their
"s-e-a-l-s."

     Tho reason  why
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is so successful in overcoming
woman's ills is because it contains tho

act on the femalo organism. Women

call ghen for "Roger do (.'overly,"
when another sound broko the stillness of the nigln outside. Weirdly
wailed the; ' Va. ya, hu ya, hu yau, hu
yua, yaa, yaa, hu ya, hu gaa, hu yaa,"
eic. to tho accompaniment of a: "Kup-
a-tuin-liiu.. tu rup a turn turn, lu rup
a turn turn turn tutu turn," of iho Indian "torn loin." "The Indians," sev-
eial void's exclaimed. Rushing out
ihey discovered circled on the grassy
lawn, heiwcen the house ami lho lake,
a baud of Indians decked out In lull
regalia ol [i alltcrs, paint and other
ailnrnmenis. Willi fantastic steps
ihoy circled arou.id another group of
Indians sQUatted on the ground, who
were Industriously beating tho "lorn
loms" to wnlch thoy limed their steps
and sing-song wails of "yaa, yaa, hu
yaa, hu yaa, hu yaa, yaa, hu yaa, hu
yaaa." Eoinied around in an outer
circle, their squaws, dressed in tholr
brightest colors, slopped round lhe
circle, and, In treble wails kept lime,
tune and step with Ihelr lords and
masters.
"Even the Indians are giving you a
■pow wow,' Miss Eraser,'' someone
cried.
Such it proved to he. The Indians,
desiring to show Ihelr pleasure at lhe
rescue of "Merry Sunbeam," as sin-
was called by Ihem, requested permission of the agent to leave Iho reserve,
and. In their own way, pay their respects to the honor of tho girl who
was a greal favorite among them. Taking advantage of tho presence al the
reserve of Sergt. Melvin's squad of
threo men, und also on account of tho
sergeant's pros,lice there himself, he
generously granted their request. This
visit, the Indians planned, would lake
the form of the present "pow wow,"
the highest honor they could confer
on her.
Mary, realizing tho significance of
this signal honor, went about among
them, chatting with the squaws in
their own language, of which she had
acquired a fair knowledge. Sh(? passed in and out among ihem. thanking
the braves and shaking hands with
the more dignified older members of
the band, calling each hy name.
For a lull hour the Indians kept up
their "pow wow" to the pleasant enjoyment of all the guests. Later, at
the invitation of .Miss Eraser, they all
crowded into the house, and, squatting on the floor or standing around
the room, they watched the different
numbers of the dance wllh evident
amusement. Some of Ihe young men
present took particular delight in
choosing as partners some of lhe more
dusky maidens firm the reserve who,
even though unfamiliar wiih lhe intricacies of the different dances, look
keen pleasure out of this experience.
It was a sight that, at times, disturbed the usual stoical Immobility of the
faces of their stately lords Inlo an occasional smile. Thus dance followed dance until long pasl the hour of
midnight.
At this hour Mrs. Fraser requested
them to arrange themselves for the
serving of lunch which she, wllh lhe
assistance of the few older housewives
present, had by now prepared from her
own store of food and the low baskets
brought by the women guests. Plates
of sandwiches and cakes were passed around by the young women and
girls till all were satisfied. This was
a part in which the Indians look particular delight, as they helped themselves to generous portions as these
new dainties were passed among Ihem.
The shortage of tea cups was overcome by Iwo or perhaps three making
use of Ihe same cup or I in.
Among the interesting guests present a group of three Frenchmen and
two French half-breeds from Willow
Hunch and Wood Mountain attracted
unusual attention. These men, who
had been camping on Ihelr way east
wllh cartloads of buffalo hides and
olher furs, were told of the "shindig,"
and Invited hy passorsby to come
along. The group was under the
charge of Joe la Tour, a man who,
wiih iho characteristics of his race,
was bubbling over with that sense of
humor and love of fun that won for
him the genial favors of such company as he happened to be in. Joe,
In commenting on the dlfferenl dances,
particularly extoled Ihe merits of tho
old-fashioned "reel a qualre." or
"French fours." as some called it.
This reel, being an unknown one
among Ihe guests, lhe young men Insisted lhat an exhibition of "French
lours" be given hy Joe and his companions. To llils request ihey readily agreed, and giving lhe violinist lire
all' of lhe tune required, the lour men
mailing one set, took possession of
the centre of lhe llnor.
The reel did nol seem lo he ii com-
plicated one so tai as evolutions were
concerned, Inn li required a skill in
lhe ail of slop dancing Ihal Tew modern dances possess. They slop danced on the corners; they changed
hands around, and they swung their
partners to rnst time music with a
speed ihal virtually lifted ihe lighter
dancers off Iheh feel. One can readily conceive or ihe exhilarating effect
and .the commotion caused whim sev
oral (sets of lours held down the floor
al the one lime. The vigorous hand-
clapping thai lollowed this dance
showed thai ii was appreciated and
enjoyed by the spectators.
Joe. feeling the Intoxication ol tlio
dance In which ho had jusl taken pari,
was nol qulle satisfied, Desiring
more ol' It, he said to one of his companions, Napoleon More: "Poleon by
lonalre, I heal you on de Red ReeUer
.icon, ah?"
"Ha gosh, Joe la Tour, I Ink' you on
dad sure, me," he said.
The challenge Issued and acocplod.
all presenl were on edge wllh excite-
mem at lhe prcspecis ol witnessing a
contest lo ihem unique. Many of
them  had  never even  heard   of  this
western historic dance, and few, if
any, had over seen ii danced. Hut.
judging from whal thej had seen ot
Ihe step dancing ol lhe two men, ihey
anticipated Ihal tho "Red 11, ever jeeg"
would furnish ihem with some excitement, as well as give tin in a good
exhibition ot step dancing. Tlio challenge and lis acceptance were accordingly greeted wiih rounds of hand-
clapping and shouts of approval.
.loo. elated by ihe encouragemeul lie
had ihus received, proceeded to arrange wllh lho fiddler lor lho playing
of the lively air required for this
(lance, llul. as ihal personage seemed disinclined io undertake lhe laslt,
Joe suggested io him to lend his
"fedello" to ids other companion, Joan
lo llcrge, who. he said, was a good
'Toddler." Tho owner ol lho instrument willingly ncceeded to his request.
Thou calling le Herge, ho said, "Jean,
com' here an' play do niusiquc for dis
dance, an', ba lonalre, you play nice
an' queek, an' I show 'Poleon I heel
heciy dam' queek on his dance; ah?"
"Al' ri'le, Joe la Tour," he said, "1
ITnk, me, 'Poleon, ho ees a good dancer, an' 1 am sure he hole vou on de
floor; ah?"
Jean look lho fiddler's seal and pro
 ded  lo lime  the  violin, while the
iwo contestants took thoir respective
places as Ihey laced each olher on lhe
centre ol the floor. Fli ally giving Ills
body a heave, and slreichlng his arms
io assure freedom of notion, ho drew
lhe how across lhe strings as a signal
lo preparo for action. Striking a lively air, the tool of lhe contestants
quickly responded lo thc rhythmic
motions Indicated by the lime and
tune. Arms swinging, hands twitch
ing kepi time will) the rapid motions
of Ihe feet. Easier and raster Ihe
time Increased, faster anil faster Ihe
I'ect moyed In unison as thoy cul small
circles in Ihe centre of the floor. "Plus
fori! Jean, Plus fori!" shouts la Tour.
Quickly, in response, tlie lime gained
speed, and Ihe feet kepi time. On.
on the furious pace kept on wilhoul
sign of relaxation. Swinging lo the
lime of Hie music, Jean's body and
head moved as it in harmony wiih Ihe
motions of the bow, and in time with
Ihe movements of his fingers as they
danced on the strings of the violin.
The minutes passed, yet there was no
relaxing. Tireless leet still kepi up
In rapid motion to the fast lime and
rhythm or the music. Arms and bodies swung and swayed In full sympathy. Though drops ot nersplralion
trickled from Ihe brows of the nimble
contestants, on the rapid moving feet
rallied the tlmo on the hard door.
Tensely the spectators watched;
some in silent admiration; some keeping lime with Ihelr Iocs; some with
the swaying of their bodies; and some
wllh the clapping of IheTiands. And
as the contest thus continued. Ihus it.
held them in its grip, Even lhe
squaws swaying to the intoxication
and held In lhe grip or the exciting
contest, first beat time and, finally,
yielding to the call of their own wild
music, gave way to a dialling refrain
that Intensified in pilch us lhe music
and the contest continued. They
were exciting moments, and the excitement increased in intensity as
wiih dogged persistency both men kept
going.
"Snip blng-lngl" Two of the fiddle
strings gave way'to tile strain. Suddenly the music stopped, and. as slid-
denly^he dancers ceased; neither
one Ihe winner nor the loser, A sudden burst of applause followed lhe
cessation of the danco, and each contestant received heartiest congratulations from Ihelr respective admirers.
"Ha gar." panted Joe wiping the perspiration from his brow, as he withdrew, "she Is locky t'lng lor 'Poleon,
de fedello, she broke. 1 don' know,
me, ITnk he slop hi'seT precly queek
soon; ah?"
"Ha, ha. Joe la Tour," was the quick
retort, "If you t'lnk, ba gosh, 1 stop
luese'f for one hour more you mak
heck mislak'; sure 1 t'lnk you dam'
glad do lodelle, she broke, an' slop
queek for save you; nil?"
Those bantering retorts from the
sporty contestants were received with
peals ol' laughter and Cheers of good-
naiured amusement by Ihe admiring
crowd, whose enjoyment of the conies! was manifested by their comments.
The violin soon pul Into commission

waltz was called, which was led off

Alberia farmers began with $179,389,
and dropped to $94,846. Farmers ot
the Yukon began with $10 and rose to

pEANUT POLITICS is trying to hold up the Relief
Express. By your vote remove this obstruction to
prosperity on June 20th. A vote for the Liberal Candidate is a vote for John Oliver, the engineer who
will bring this Relief Express, bearing prosperity for
British Columbia, safely through. It carries Equalized
Freight Rates-the one fundamental that is essential to
to the prosperity of every man, woman and child in
this Province.    N
Equalized Freight Rates will bring millions to our Province;
will double our population in ten years; will develop our ports;
will bring to us basic manufacturing industries and their pay-rolls ;
will develop the necessary market for our agricultural products.
Equalized Freight Rates means more money—more industries-
more people—lower taxes-lower cost of taxes.
Equalized Freight Rates is the hinge on which the door to
prosperity hangs. John Oliver and his Liberal Government have
the key in the form of the sympathetic ear of a like Liberal Government at Ottawa.
Your vote for the Liberal Candidate is a message to the industrial, financial and political interests of the East that you are behind
John Oliver in his fight for prosperity. Remember this on June
twentieth.

Provincial Party of British Columbia
LET THERE BE LIGHT
The readers of this publication have read in the two previous issues the platform of the Provincial Party which Mr. Harold
R. Smith swears to uphold. You no doubt will wonder how such a complete and comprehensive platform for the salvation
of British Columbia could have been devised. The story is easily told. The Platform is the outcome of Resolutions, and
the resolutions are the thoughts of men and women, put into words, who want our Province to rise from its slough of
machine politics ; who want to see the end of wasteful extravagance which causes hardship to the people through grinding
taxation. At the Provincial Party Convention in Vancouver, December last, these Resolutions were given for our benefit
by those assembled, who represented all shades of opinion from every part of the Province. There were Miners, Lumbermen, Engineers, Laborers, Railwaymen, Lawyers, Businessmen, Housewives, Farmers, Contractors, and all kinds and classes.
Some were Laborites, Socialists, Communists, Liberal and Conservative, others had no previous political leanings. All had
the Interest of our Province at heart and gave of what they had to offer freely. The 250 Delegates freely discussed the
resolutions and unanimously agreed to the following, upon which the platform of the Provincial Party is supported.
RESOLUTIONS-Contlnued.
28. Chinese, Merchants.—Resolved that the intrusion
ol Chinese merchants into the mercantile business of the
province ls a menace to the community, and that all possible steps should be taken by the provincial government
insofar as Us jurisdiction extends, to put an end to this,
and tha tthe strongest possible representations should be
made to the Dominion government to take such steps as
may lie necessary on Its part to attain the above mentioned object.  ,
29. Oriental Truck Farmers.—Whereas tbe Orientals

Orientals from further owning and leasing land and
that It will do Its utmost to persuade the Federal government to pass legislation to this effect.
30. Mining.—Resolved that In the taxation of the
products of metalliferous mines, the principle of taxing
net profits only be adopted, consideration being given
to depletion.
In policy this party is opposed to the creating of reserves which would restrict the exploitation and development of the mineral resources of the province.
This party is strongly in favor ot the strict enforcement of all laws restricting and controlling "wild-catting
operations."
The Provincial Party of B. C. favors legislation for
encouraging and assisting prospecting.
This Party stands for economy in administration In
all departments, and to th is end favors consolidation, if
practicable, ot inspections ami assessment and collection
of Dominion and Provincial mineral taxes.
31. Un-Brltlsh Legislation.—Resolved that In the

of every section of the electorate. It Bhall be made directly responsible to the legislative assembly of this province, so that whatever legislation ls approved by the
people of the province It wlll be administered In a business-like manner and without political Interference.
(3). That any drastic change In the liquor laws ot
the province must be submitted to the people by referendum (preferably at a general election), In terms which
wlll permit a clear expression of the will of the people.

39. Disabled Veterans.—Be it resolved that the Provincial Party when returned to power, give preference
In government employment as tar aB consistent with
efficiency to maimed and disabled veterans.
40. Narcotic Drug Evil.—Whereas drug habits have
reached such alarming proportions in B. C. as to undermine the health, well-being, and morals of many people
In the province,
And whereas the parliament of Canada has Jurisdiction over all such matters ot criminal law and punishment of offences against the same,
Be it therefore resolved that the Minister of Justice
be requested to secure the passage at the next session of
the Parliament of Canada of such legislation as will permit, in addition to all other punishments, the administration of the lash on all persons found guilty of peddling drugs, and
Be it further resolved that the government of the
province of British Columbia take the necessary steps
in conjunction with the governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan for the establishment of an isolation hospital
in which drug addicts in B. C, Alberta and Saskatchewan
can be confined with a view to securing their permanent
cure.
41. Export of Logs.—Whereas quantities of timber
are (being cut from forests In British Columbia and
taken out of the province in an unmanufactured condition;
And whereas this practice is resulting in the exploitation of one ot our most valuable natural resources,
to the detriment of the Interests ot the people of this
province;
And whereas said practice has resulted In large
numbers of wage-earners being forced to leave the province in order to Obtain employment elsewhere;
And whereas the manufacture of all British Columbia timber within the province would materially Increase
employment In the province In all branches of industry
and business;
And whereas it Is essential that the present practice bo put a stop to;
And whoroas a number of people in this provlneo
are now employed In the logging camps of tho province,
and n large sum of money ls Invested therein;
And whereas It is just and equitable that proper
notice of any drastic change In tho present practice bo
given;
Therefore be It resolved that this convention is of
the opinion that every reasonable step should be taken
by the .government to prevent the exportation of unmanufactured timber from this province.
42. Municipal Conference.—-Resolved that tho Pro-
vlnclal Party of B. C. pledges itself when returned to
power, It wlll at the earliest dato possible thereafter call
Into conference municipal representatives to consider all
outstanding questions In dispute between the provincial
and municipal authorities, with a view to adjusting all
such questions and problems In an equitable manner.
43. Education.—Whereas the ever Increasing costs
for educational purposes aro creating a serious condition in this province;
And whereas the burden of taxation tor education,
particularly in regard to rural land, has passed all
limits of equity and reason;
And whereas municipalities are unable'to bear any
greater taxation for educational purposes;
And whereas the educational system of the province
ls unsatisfactory and detective, particularly in respect to
public health and child welfare;
Therefore be It resolved that the Provincial Party
do pledge Itself to cause a general business and scientific
survey to be made of the educational system of the
province with a view to remedy these conditions.
44. Freight and Express Rates.—Resolved that this
party Is of the firm conviction that the unjust discrimination against us ot freight rates In favor of the East
Is a very vital factor In the economic life of the province and that we will use our utmost endeavor to have
this unfair discrimination removed, and furthermore not
only do we put ourselves on record as opposing any increase in Express rates, but shall make every endeavor
to have them reduced as they are too high in British
Columbia at present. <
45. Grain Shipments.—Resolved that the Provincial
Party wlll when returned to power, use Its Influence to
promote grain shipments by the Pacific route.
46. Fishing Industry.—That whereas the whole
fishing Industry of this province has been hitherto a
political fooCball and In grave danger of complete extinction;
And whereas It Is impossible for the federal government to understand local conditions and apply the best
regulations;
And whereas the proper development of the province is retarded by the employment of large numbers
of Orientals;
And whereas other provinces in the Dominion have
been given control of their fisheries;
Be it therefore resolved that it is essential that
the provincial government secure complete control of
this important industry, rescue it from all political influences, and provide efficiently for its maintenance as
a perpetual asset.
47. Provincial Highway.—The Provincial Party
goes on record as being in favor ot pushing to Immediate completion the trans-provincial highway connecting

safeguard and simplify land titles In B. C, and eradicate as far as possible all measures which threaten the
security of title and the safety of the transfer of land.

Bee-Keepmg Industry Makes
Remarkable Strides In West
During The Past Three Y ears
One of the important aims oi the
District Builders' of Southern Manitoba \* Lo encourage their young people lo luko up Bide line s thai will provide them with an independent income,
Beekeeping ls one or the few things
thai can be carried on profitably by
boys ami girls during Ih"' summer
months when their parents would naturally want, ihem ai home, and yet
leave the boy or girl \Wr for lhe winter mouths with enough earned money
in hand to allow Ihem tn follow any
course of study thoj wanted without
liriiilvlng th" home ties.      ^ *
Beekeeping is ono of the important
Industries in Manitoba, as well as Saskatchewan am) Alberia. H Is an Industry 'hni has made remarkable
strides dii.ii)!', the pasl three years
and Is recognized as n scientific and |
money making project.
Nol so very long ago, boekeoplng
was regarded as a "hobby" of farm
and rural life, bul ihal time has passed. Today, ii is an industry neces-
Minting little laboj' and showing very:
profitable returns!
in order to establish beekeeping In
Southern Manitoba the Canadian Pacific Hallway Agricultural Department
recently co operated with L. T. Floyd, |
provincial apiarist, to give four shorn
courses in beekeeping at Deloralne, I
Kilkuney, Morden aud Pilot Mound.
These courses lasted a week In each
town and ran in conjunction with tlie;
District Builders' conferences, another1
project which has gained the whole- j
hearted support of the Canadian Paei-j
fie Agricultural Department.
It was decided, in order tfiat Mr.j
Floyd's work would be carried on after
tlie course was finished, to give a prize
of a colony of bees and beginner's
equipment lo the best pupil at each;
point, tills pupil lo act as point of con-
tact between Mr Floyd and the bee- j
keepers in the district. In addition-
to a colon1* of bees the prize consist-1
ed of a hive'in flat, super, smoker,,
foundation, bale, queen excluder, spur
embedder, spool and wire. j

says, rather than the capture of ol-

women. They began iheir work during lhe war, when ihey watched over
the young women and soldiers who
(locked Ihrough the great railroad stations. Since then their work has
grown io talking charge of women

Shortage of Lambs
Supplies Reported to be Inadequate to

The noticeable feature of livestock
movement, as reported by the Dominion Livestock Branch, in lhe third
month of the year, apart from the increased volume ot hogs, was lhe short
supply of sheep. The report says:
"Toronto rcci Ived only BO^per cent, ol'
lhe volume ol March hist year, and far
the year to dale the shortage of sheep
amounts to pver IU.000 h< ad. Western Canada's marketings have been
so meagre as lo barely constitute a
basis for trading. Despite tlie lighl
volume of marketings, interest in
sheep is extremely keen." The report further states that supplies are
inadequate, which would Indicate Uie

fields where he can obtain native fruit
for the picking and the markets
where fruit is sold In great variety.
The wild fruits of Canada am numerous and varied. They are found in
abundance in practically every pari of
the Dominion where the settler is
likely to go. Fruits such aa the currant, gooseberry, raspberry and strawberry grow wild almost or quite to the
Arctic circle, the flavor of these native fruits being unexcelled, for the
most part, by that of the cultivated
varieties. Over a large part, ol Eastern Canada the blueberry grows In
great profusion and is considered one
of the most delicately flavored of all
fruits. The cranberry is found wild
Over a very wide area and the liigli-
bush cranberry, or pembtna, makes an
excellent substitute where the low-
growing species does not grow. lu
addition to these there are many other
fine wild fruits, such as the saskatoon or juncberry, particularly valuable in the prairie provinces, the
choke cherry, Qf very fine flavor
though somewhal astringent, the pin
or btl'd cherry, making excellent jelly,
tlie bufTaloberry, also a useful fruit on
the prairies, and, mom limited in
adaptation, the blackberry*' salmon-
berry and cloudberry and several
other fruits of less importance. The
wild Canadian plums are found all
through Eastern Canada and inlo iho
prairie provinces, These vary much
in size and quality, but are excellent
for canning, jam or jelly. The wild
grape, while njt an important fruit,
because of Us small size and the fact
that cultivated varieties can so readily be obtained, is very hardy and is
found native throughout Eastern Canada and as far northwestward as
Northern Manitoba.
While, as has been stated, there is
an abundance and great variety of wild
fruit In Canada, Ihe climatic condl
lions are such that cultivated ov improved varieties of most of these and
oilier kinds are grown in enormous
quantities, commercially, in certain great fruit district's the bulk of
the crop is grown for distribution to
all parts of Canada which can be
reached in a reasonable time by railroad and Bleambont, Much fruit is

the isolated communities along Its
route have suffered great hardship,
Which now Is fully due for remedy.
The gains will be inestimable to the
fiettleitg nnd farmers : travellers and
tourists will be able to1 take tlio North
route or the Soulh, or, what will better suit, they may utilize tho "belt
line;" a rightful share of the gains
from tourists from the South will become the earning of the North bank
citizens j socially, industrially, and in
trade relationships, the now very much
disjointed vicinities will link up. They
are similar though dissociated. Theirs
will become a common Interest ns woll
aa a common crowning triumph !
Whatever change in provincial administration, this great avenue of
tuade nnd transportation Is assured
right  now—not some  time.

Owing to the Increased number of
campers coming from different parf.s
of B.C., also froinU.S.A., during tho
summer to Cultus Lake, one of the
beauty spots of B.C., and all the
travel being- by automobile, it has become necessary to have a permanent
service station for the accommodation
of visitors. Agassiz people will be
delighted as well as interested In. the
fact that Mr. Evan Inkman and Mr.
Eric Cotterel have secured an option
fnom Chiliiwack, and are establishing
an up-to-date service station to supply gas and accessories, car service
and everything in emergency, which
will be a great accommodation to the

two young mon are both experts on
cars of all kinds. Everyone In Agassiz who has watched Evan Inkman
prow fnom an Infant knows that he
has been studying tho mechanism of
cars ever since he could walk,
GARDEN   BBAUTXrUL
One of the most beautiful sights
In this pattt of the country is that of
the garden of Messrs, Frank and
Harry Sweatman. What strikes ono
on first sight is tho artistic arrangement, earllncss, oleanllness, and the
very beautiful collection from different parts of tho world. A feature
most noticeable; wqp that somo of the
finest and newest sweet peas were Ml
full bloom the last week in May, The
vegetable garden is, perhaps, not so
beautiful ; the only way it can be
defjribed Is that it Is just grand.
One feels like the Judge nt the dog
show who said, "How hnppy could I
bo with either1 wero t'other dear charmer  away."

GRAIN FED CATTLE FOR EASTERN MARKET
SINCE the first of May a very
fine lot of cattle have been
passing through the stockyards at Winnipeg. These show
the result of intensive feeding they
received during the winter, and the
large number of cattle recently
coming forward indicate that West-
cm farmers have greatly enlarged
their winter feeding operations
over what prevailed two or three
years ago. In order to encourage
this business the railways last fall
reduced the freight rates on feeder
cattle taken out from the stockyards to the country to one-half the
regular rates, and the co-operative
cattle pool announced that no com
mission would be charged farmers
purchasing such cattle from the
pool. Many of the good cattle recently received at^the yards were
purchased by farmers last fall in
uniform loads carefully sorted up
by the pool, and shipped out under
the reduced railway rates. Winter
feeding operations have on the
whole made a very satisfactory return to a large number of farmers,
and cattle purchased at from four
to four and a half cents a pound
have been resold this spring at
from six and a half to seven cents
a pound, or occasionally more,
after making a gain in weight
often    averaging   two   hundred
pounds or more.
Many western cattle are now
moving east, both to packing
plants, for export to Great Britain,
and to Ontario farms for further
intensive feeding. Many loads of
pool cattle are consigned direct to
farmers in Ontario who have placed
orders for them. To get these cattle to destination in the quickest
possible time and to avoid as far as
possible shrinkage losses in transit,
the Canadian National Railways
operate a special fast through
cattle train daily from Winnipeg to
the east, and cattle for this movement are loaded up each evening
about seven o'clock.
