Re the extension of tbe water
works system so as to include
lands adjacent to Liinsdowne. F.
Temple Cornwall gave it as his
opinion: (1) The council has the
authority to extend or cause to be
extended the water system as required. (2) Such extension may
be done under the sections of the
Municipal Clauses Act dealing
with the bylaws regulating local
improvements, (ii) The cost of
such work may be levied ns a
special rate on the lands benefitted by such work. (4) The rates
for water can be regulated the
same as other rates, tuxes, etc.
Before the council can proceed in
the matter it will be necessary for
the parties desiring the extension
of the system to petition the council to that effect.
F. Temple Cornwall, solicitor for
the municipality, reported that the
difficulty re the Bennett creek
drain assessments had been settled satisfactory to all parties
concerned.

tumbling mustard on the lands of
theC. P. R. near Larkin and ball
mustard quite general throughout
the municipality; also' desired to

the presence of bull and Scotch
thistles in the municipality. - A
letter was received from E. .1.
Trcuson iu reply to the notice of
the weed inspector stating that be
would have the weeds on his property destroyed soon.
•I. M. Wright, secretary of the
municipal school board, called the

bad condition of the road in places
leading to the Pleasant Valley
school. The sum of $10 was appropriated to repair the same.
The assessor made application

Public
School   Building   to
Raited at Once.
Be
J. M. Wright, secretary of the
school board, received an official
letter from the department of
education Wednesday with refer-
I ence to the addition of the second
story to the Armstrong public
school building, which has been
subjected to considerable apparent
delay. The minister of education
states that the public works department has been instructed to
proceed with the work at once, so
that it iB probable that the work
on the new story will now be begun
shortly. With the addition of the
second story to the present handsome brick structure Armstrong
will boast one of the best public
and high school buildings in the
province. Nor is the improvement to be made any too soon, for
with tbe very large increase in the
number of public school pupils
and with the addition of the high
school the additional room is badly needed, and will be utilized in
u very short time.

Our Water Supply.
During the summer season the
necessity for tho enlargement of
the present waterworks system is
made most plainly apparent. With
the present small main the supply
is entirely insufficient and the result is a deal of dissatisfaction
among the consumers.   The water
thai the farmers of tbe community
are satisfied with the prices obtain,>1 through this ohannel and
the treatment accorded them by
the management is best evidenced
by the fact that the Exchange is
now the only medium through
which produce i6 handled outside
of the small amount dom' by the
general stores at this place Thnt
the farmers are enabled to sell
their produce for cash creates a
condition highly satisfactory both
to the producers ami to the merchants, and one which should be
taken into consideration by parties
who contemplate embarking in
agriculture or fruit growing iu the

Re Public Swimming Tank.
A public  meeting is  culled by j
the water commissioners   for  tonight, for the purpose  of discuss-
ing the suggestion of erecting a
public swimming bath on the recreation grounds.     Such a convenience would no doubt be of great
value to the community, and the
proposition of the commissioners is
worthy  of   careful   consideration.!
The cost of a suitable tank is esti-'
mated at about jtl.iXHI.     This thel
commissioners   pro|iose could be
provided from the surplus accumulated by the town waterworks system,   the   expense   thus    coming
equally upon the   public  and  in-
such a manner  as to   hardly   be
noticeable. Beside a small revenue
that would he secured during  the1
slimmer months  it, is   suggested'
that during the   winter the   tank'
could be utilized   for   freezing   ice
for the town, thus assuring a  substantial revenue for this necessary,
though scarce, commodity,    It   is
urged that a good attendance  will
turn out to  the meeting that, the
matter may be freely discussed pro
and con,    Other business  in  coil.
iiei-tion with the   waterworks will
iilso be considered.

Among the excursionist* to this
part of the valley the past week
was a party from Moose Jaw, Sask.,
consisting of Alex Wilson and
-wife, Dr. Sisse and wife, Wesley
Mitchell, J. Dennis, and Miss
Flossie Arnold. They were all
taking a look for the first time over
the Okanagan of which they have
heard a great deal in their prairie
home, and so far as they had seen
it when here were most agreeably
impressed with the appearance of
the country. At. least some of the
party will no doubt make invest-
ments before returning home.
Last Saturday was perhaps the
most quiet Saturday that has been
experienced in town for the past
year. This is easily uccounted for
by the fact that the farmers of the
district are universally engaged in
the hay field, Hundreds of tons
have been put up in this distrist
the past week. The crop is
heavy one and the dry weather has
permitted its being put up in excellent condition. Except that of
the higher uplands the hay is
now pretty well up and by another
week will pretty generally be in
the stuck.
GK A. Love returned Monday
from his business trip to Red
Deer, Alto., where he succeeded in

in the prairie province nt this time
are most, favorable, the weather is
warm and prospects for a good
harvest favorable, and the country
fast tilling up with the now immigrants from the western states,
Mr. Love was accompanied on his
homeward trip by H. L. Gaels,
druggist and poBtmaster oi Red
Deer, who cams out to see some
of the Okanagan.

 ^^^   pur,
chaser of W.'Gregory's farm, has
located adjoining his brother by
the purchase of forty acres of land
from E. M.Chambers, upon which
he expects to make his home. Mr.
Chambers sold forty acres only to
reduce his holding, as he has no
desire to dispose of all his fine
ranch on the east side of the valley.
The sporting element of the
town was revived] Saturday night
by the pulling off of a horse race
between horses owned by Josh
Blackburn and W. Needham, for a
money stake. Blackburn's horse
had considerably tbe belt of the

in several lengths in the lead, A
large crowd of spectators turned
out.

quickly dissipated by their display

ARE TERMS CLOSELY
[DENTIPIEP WITH LIFE IN
THE WEST.
In this comparatively new,
country people are working daily
for ihe upbuilding of the town and
district, and for the improvement
of the conditions under which they
are called upon to live.   Every act
of daily life that tends to bettering
one's surroundings makes directly
of indirectly for the improvement
of society generally.     In all this
the local newspaper plays an important   part.     Among its  local
readers it stimulates un increasing I
interest in their home  surround- {
ings, keeping them posted on local |
happenings, and   becomes  a wel-1
come weekly messenger.     Among i
its outside readers it forms a valu-1
able advertising medium, making |
known the merits, advantages and
prospects of the district it represents,     in   the  upbuilding of a
town or district the local newspaper
is a most important factor.
