Armstrong's Fifteenth Annua! Celebration Most Successful.
ARMSTRONG'S fifteenth an-
nun!celebration of Dominion
[lay held hint Monday in no
way proved an exception to the
list of successes on similar occasions for the i-act number of years-
lu fnet, from many point* of view
this year's celebration provided the
moHt satisfactory day a entertain-
meiit yet given in the town.
From the BtirKn.niH.ig district
the |MM>|.lt> began gathering early.

thu largw crowd on the special excursion train at IhiiO the town wan

■till further swelled the crowd.
among its passengers being the
Salmon Arm base ball team and
its liberal contingent of loyal sup-
porters from that town.
The first event on the program
was the base ball content between
the Salmon Arm twirlers nnd the I
home team. In this event lovers
of bast! ball were treated to a splendid exhibition of the national American game. The Salmon Arm
aggregation is composed of a mix-
tore of men of varied callings-
engineers, clerks, operators, cow-
pnneherB nud farmers—every one
of whom know something about
base ball, and who unitedly comprise one of the most jovial and all
round good lot of fellows that is
ever met on an athletic field. Ab
the score shows the game was easily anybody'sgame all the way
through anil the final count- 8-7—
gave the game to the visiting team
by only a small margin. Several
errors on the part of tho home
team dne to the lack of efficient
practice cost them the game. A.
K. Armitne/e officiated as umpire
to the general satisfaction of the
The spsrts of the afternoon opened with a game of nobbies by
tho boys in which teams representing Lnrkin and Armstrong were
matched. This game is a comparatively new one, played on the
same principles as lacrosse, and
furnishes a good means of recreation for the small boys as well as
splendid training for the playing
of the greater and more national
game a few years later. The little
follows go into the game with all
the energy they possess and create
a lively interest among the spectators. The game ended in a score
of 2 to I in favor of Armstrong.
The athletic Bports were run off
in tlle order announced and without a bitch or unpleasant feature
of any kind. I'ln tries were lacking
in none of the events and all met
with manifest interest on the part
of the spectators. The following
is tho result, in tho various event*:
Boy's hose nice—-In this two
teams composed, of boys captained
respectively by Freddie Murray
and Harry Armstrong engaged.

At 4:00 o'olook the second base
ball game of the day began- Sal
mon Arm vs. Enderby. From the
beginning it was evident that the
Euderby team, who hml treated
Vernon to n sound walloping 22
to ll in the morning, were to be
too much for the Salmon Arm foi
lows. Billy Mack's cannon balls
seemed swifter and his twisters
crookeder thnn ever and it whb
with considerable difficulty that
his opponents struck him at all,
while the fellows from the Arm
failed to do as good work iu the
field ns they did in the morning
game. It was. however, n nice
game from a spectator's point of
view, although one-sided, and was
characterized by the good-nature
and friendly feeling bIiowii by all
the players. Walter Wolfenden
umpired in his usually satisfactory
manner. The score was 14-7 in
Bnderby's favor.
The junior lacrosse game between Enderby and Armstrong was
anxiously awaited by the spectators and did not prove disappointing as one of the interesting attractions of tlie day. The learns
were evenly matched in point of
size, and gave a good amateur exhibition of tbe game. There was
a noticeable absence of rough play
and no illfeelings were in any way
incurred among the players. Bert
Francis refereed and in that capacity gave general satisfaction to all
concerned. The score was 11-0 in
favor of Asuistrong.
The mounted sports proved to
be among the most interesting of
the day's attractions, A lnwe
number of entries were made und
the contests in the various events!
were so close ns to  necessitate the I
running off of sovreal lies.    The'
mounted wrestling wub especially
prolonged by the evenness of the
contestants. The following were
the winners:
Potato anil Bncket race on
horse back Josh Bliukbuni 1st;
Gus Swansou 2nd.
Mounted wrestling match - Fred
Lednc 1st; Harry Logan 2nd.
Victoria Cross race    Harry Logan 1st; (Ins HwaiiHon 2nd.
The conclusion of the sports was
the foot ball game between hinder-
by and the home team Practically the whole of tho crowd remained
and watched the game with a deep
interest. Considering the lack of
practice on the part of both teams,
some good playing was done And
tho contest was closely waged, the
game ending with Khilerby having
to their credit toe only-snore mode.
The ball given in the I. O. F.
hall in the evening by and for the
benefit of the town band proved a
most successful conclusion to a
successful celebration of Dominion
Day. The music was furnished by
the orchestra and this together
with the spacious dancing space
afforded in the half-maintained the
reputation of Armstrong among
those who revel in tbe dance as the
dancing centre of the Okanogan.
About seventy-five couples participated and continued the revelry
till well into Tuesday morning.
The supper was catered to by Mrs.
Shary and was a most satisfactory
feature of the dance. Financially,
the band boys did not clear a large
sum, but at least have the satisfaction of knowing another successful social function is added to their

On future occasions the towns-
|xx>ple should give more attention
to the decoration of their individual properties. A residence nicely
decorated on the birthday of the
Dominion shows that the owner
possesses a pride in his country.

The weather of the morning opened to perfection, although toward noon it grow very warm.

the day was almost unbearable, yet
with, the mercury at 100 in the
shade the program was carried out
without cessattau.

liberal quota of the attendance

Taken all in all, the day passed
most successfully; without a jar or
hitch of ony kind. The committees in charge had matters well iu
hand and the various events were
palled off in rapid succession with
no tedious delays or waits between.
In this last respect Armstrong has
long since stood out pre-eminent
among the towns of the valley.
-« •
The business men of the town
ore to be commended for their en.
terprise which so generously assisted, to. make the celebration a
financial success. Public-spirited-
ness is appreciated by the general
public, and while some business
men may not realize the returns
for their donations directly the
most generous giver will indirectly
profit by his liberality.
* *
The energetic ladies of tho
Methoilist church recognized a
golden opportunity and arranged
for the new agricultural hall for
the serving of ice cream and fruit.
This made an excellent place for
the comfortable accommodation of
the public and the ladies were
kept on the jump. Their receipts
reached the magnificent sum of
$146, out of which is added a very
creditable sum to their treasury
» *
One thing the celebration settled for once and for all -and that
is that Armstrong is no longer dependent upon other town of the
valley. What we mean to sny is
that, while we are glad to have the
other towns of the valley celebrat
with ub and abow Armstrong the!
day exclusively as in former years.
the mere fact of other towns
breaking away from this rule and j
I celebrating on their own hook by
no means handicaps the success of
Armstrong's undertakings.

Principal Wilscn Retires to High
The town school closed last. Friday with titling oxerclsos. The
forenoon was occupied with tlie ordinary school work, during which
time the various rooms were visited by a large number of parents of
tho children and other friends of
the school. In the primary and
intermediate rooms the parents
were enabled to witness the methods employed by the respective
teocherB in the thorough teaching
of the various branches included
in their curriculum. In the Benior
room Principal Wilson employed
tho forenoon in making some interesting chemical experiments for
tho purpose of impressing some of
the lessons taught in the high
school course. "All work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy" has
long been recognized among the
heBt educators as a true and trite
saying, hence the afternoon was
given entirely to the enjoyment of
the children in their various sports.
That they took full advantage of
the opportunity offered them may
easily be imagined nnd a long list
of sports was heartily Indulged in
und ipiite as heartily enjoyed by a
liberal attendance of older people.
With the closing of this term
ended the BerviceB of Principal
Eli Wilson iu connection with the
Armstrong public school. For
with the opening of the new school
year he takes up his duties as
principal of the lately-established
Armstrong high school, in which
capacity will be given greater opportunity for the exercise of his
abilities as an instructor in the
higher branches of study. During
tho three years that Mr. Wilson
has been at the head of the Armstrong school he 1ms established a
Tocord for the school that not only
reflects most creditably upon liis
abilities but hns enabled Arm
strong citizens to point with pride
to their public school as one of the
■best in the province. The success
of his labors is best shown by the
•excellent percentage of his pupils
thnt have yearly successfully
passed the entrance examinations.

with the proBpectB for opportunity
for representative exhibitions ofj
the various products of the district
it is now only reasonable to pre-

place in tho Okanagan. And, by ,
the way, this success can only be
obtained by the united cooperation ;
of those who can possibly assist by

Some years since he was elected

onr appreciation of Mr. Love's services to this town.
As president of the board of
