Make the Fair a Success.
His tube hoped the forthcoming
fall exhibition of Armstrong will
at least be characterized by a
spirit of hearty co-operation on
the part of every resident of tin-
district. This in fact is the only
manner in which a local fair can
be made a success. It iB alike
unjust and unreasonable to expect
the committees and officers of the
agricultural society alone to make
the fair the success it should b
if to-day is the one which is burked |
by a property giving reasonably
good evidence of its merits as a
potential mine. The industry in
all parts of the province is forging
ahead without music-. Bags or half
page advertisements to boost it
along, and tlie world will shortly
awaken to the fact that British
Columbia as a mining country is
not only progressing but is to be I
reckoned with in future. During
the nine months of tlle present
year over $2,000,000 have beeni
distributed in dividends by mines,
of tin- Kootenny and the Boundary
and 1,133,298 tons of ore have
; gone through ihe smelters of those
. districts during the same time. It
is the magnitude of these figures
when considered in connection
with the fact that tin-industry is:
hardly out of swaddling clothes
which must draw attention to
British Columbia, in quarters
hitherto oblivious of the opportunities which the province offers
for legitimate mining enterprises.

Mrs. Rogers and d uighter, after
spending a month visiting her sister, Mrs. W. Harry, and family
here, left Monday for her hotne at
Brandon, Man. Like many from
the prairies, Mrs. Rogers felt herself somewhat "penned in',, as it
were, here, yet could not but admit
that there were many things in the
Okanagan to be admired.
Another family arrived from
Lacombe, Alta,, Monday in tbe
person of Jos. Jamieson, wife and
children. Mr, Jamieson is a
carpenter and contemplates locating on a piece of our farm land
and at the same time working at
his trade. Lacombe has long
since taken the lead over Ponoka
in the number of immigrants from
Alberta, and that town has already
furnished many families to the
settlement of Armstrong,
L. W. Patten was the means of
stirring up considerable smoke the
last of the week. It was, however,
through nothing more serious than
the clearing of his five acre residential tract recently purchased
from G. W. Rush. Townspeople
thought for awhile from the enormous smoke thnt rose out in
his direction thai the tire had got
away from him, but the old gentleman evidently knew how to manage the big blaze and secured u
hands of a loyal people.
Arrangements are now well under
way for the reception to be tendered Earl Grey here next week.
The vice regal party will leave
Victoria on Wednesday, and will
arrive here probably Thursday
morning. Committees were appointed at Saturday night's meeting of the council to make the
preliminary arrangements for the
presentation of an appropriate
address to his Excellency, the
Governor General
Harry Swanson left Saturday
for Vancouver, where he went to
secure treatment for his leg, which
has not been getting along as
favorably as hoped. By entering
a hospital he will receive the
advantage of more strict attention
than he can secure at home. His
many friends hope to hear of his
receiving speedy relief and that
the limb may be restored to health
without the necesssty of amputation.
W. Tucher and Geo. Tellack
are proceeding with their preparations for the thorough working
of their placer mine on Deep creek
mentioned last week. A cabin has
been erected near by and it is
expected that work will be continued throughout the most of the
winter. Hydruulic machinery
will be installed to enable the sue
ing. The quality of the music
rendered showed that the boys
have profited by diligent practice
during the summer. Armstrong's
volunteer band is an organization
of which the townspeople havei
cause to be proud. :
