Upon the second reading of the

in the opinion of this House the
interests of education in this province would be better served by re-
1 verting to the school laws ex'sting
I before the passage of the l'ublic

j of the best speeches ever heard in

I journed on motion of .1. Murphy,
hereby authorized by the association to appoint, whenever necessary
a provincial boanl of directors, who
shall be entrusted with the conduct
and management of the sanitarium,
when the same is established,
pending the appointment of a permanent board."
Mr. Floyd's motion was seconded by W. T. Holtby, of Armstrong,
who briefly addressed the meeting
as being heartily in support of the
movement.

The Advance now has in hand
the printing of the prize lists for
the annual exhibition to be held
here during the coming season. It
is not too early for intending exhibitors to begin making preparations for adding to the success of
this year's fair by making the best
exhibit possible and in that way
help make the 1906 fair the best
ever held in Armstrong.
. An Okanagan Brewery.
Consumers of beer throughout
the valley may now have their
thirst quenched by the home made
article, N. Klausen, a man who
learned the business in the Fatherland, has lately established a brewery in Vernon and will socn have
his product on the market. The
plant is claimed to be modern in
every respect, tho capacity being j
500 gallons per pay.
In connection with Iub brewery !
Mr. Klausen contemplates the I
installation of a modern artificial
ice making plant, which would j
certainly prove, a boon to the valley in the present marked shortage of ice.
An Okanagan Market G rden.
D. E. Gallatley.of Gallntley, one
of the points on Okanagan lake,
has recently receivod no less than
a carload of glass to bo used in the
extensive hothouses that he is
erecting this spring in time for
the production of tomatoes and
early vegetables during the coining
season. He already has 2,000,000
young tomato plants up and ready
to transplant. Mr. Gallatley is the
silccessful Okanagan tomato grower who last season realized $1500
per acre from his land. With
that energy and enterprise which
is alone deserving of success, he is
preparing for even much greater
success, as his large hothouse
equipment will enable him to place
his products on the market much
earlier than he has previously been
able to do.
Chinaman and Wages.
At the sittings of the County
Court at Kamloops an action for
wages was brought by aChinaman,
Chew Yee against Geo. Heggie,
manager of the Sir Arthur Stepney ranch. The evidence showed
that the plaintiff left deft in the
middle of threshing without notice.
Heggie tendered him one month's
wages, but refused payment for
portion of second month unless
plaintiff would complete his month
! of service. Judgment was rendered for Heggie with costs.
Death of Joseph Fear.
The death occurei! last Thursday afternoon of Joseph Fear at
the residence of his nephew. Albert E. Fear, three miles north of
town.
The deceased was born at Bees-
ton, England, September 11, 1N'14.
being at the time of his death past
72 years of age. His death came
as a sudden surprise to his nephew
and family. For the past few
months his age had been telling
on him and it was realized that ho
could not survive ninny months
longer, but not once did neithi r
himself nor the family think the
end was to come so soon. A few
days before his death he had been
suffering a bad cold and last Thursday spent the most of the day in
bed. About 4 o'clock lie dropped
oil' to sleep in what seemed the
most natural slumber, but from
which he never awakened, death
coming quietly and peacefully
during the time he   was   sleeping.
To mourn his loss is left five
daughters, three in (lntario and
two in the States. His wife preceded him iu death some three
years'ago, Since leaving his old
home at Waterloo, Ont., where
he resided for nearly fifty years,
his home had been made with his
nephew.
The deceased was the last surviving member of a historical family. His antecedents were among
the early stock of the Wcsleyan
Methodists, his great-grandfather
being a class leader in the days of
John Wesley. His father was a
a Methodist minister of considerable prominence, the deceased
himself becoming identified with
the work of the church in early
boyhood and later devoting con-
siderablo time to the ministry.
Funeral services were conducted
by Rev. Miller last Saturday, interment taking place in the Lans-
downe cemetery. To the relatives
here, ns well as to those who in the
distance mourn the loss of a loved
and honored father, is extended
the sympathy of the community
AMERICAN SILVER.
Being Swept  out of Canada on
This Month.
Ottawa, February 21.—A clean
sweep of American silver from
Canada will begin on March 1.
The finance department has completed arrangements with all the
Canadian banks for the collection
of all the foreign silver in circulation. The banks will begin gathering it iu and forwarding it to Ottawa at the beginning of next month.
From here it will be sent to Washington and exchanged for gold,
the bunks to be paid three-eighths
of one per cent, for the silver turned in. It is stated that the government will make $400,000 out of the
silver sweep. It is calculated
there are $800,000of United States
silver circulating in Canada.
When this is replaced by Canadian
coins the profit to the 'Canadian
government will be something over
$400,000, depending upon the condition of the silver bullion market.
A Successful Presbytery Meeting.
A very successful and profitable
meeting of the Presbytery of Kamloops was held at Vernon lust week.
The attendance included nearly all
the ministers of the presbytery as
well as the superintendent of
missions, Dr. EJerdtnan, of Calgary.
Kev. D.Catnpbell.of the Armstrong
church, presented the report of the
home mission committee dealing
with the statistics of the missions,
thirteen or fourteen In number, of
the presbytery. Most of these
fields will be supplied with ordain,
ed ministers during the next six
months. The report of Sabbath
schools was very gratifying, showing more schools and better attendance throughout the district. The
report of the young peoples' societies also showed satisfactory advances. Rev. Campbell was elect-
:ed one of the the delegates to tho
| general assembly in London next
June, while Rev. G. Mason is the
other delegate.
Armstrong Rifle Association.
The new service roll of the Armstrong RiHe Association is now

EDITORIAL NOTES.

J
The writer reoently enjoyed n
trip to Okanagan lake points—our
lirst trip down the lake since living
here. While we have long since
realized the coining importance of
the Okanagan valley as a fruit producing section, one's ide as of
the real possibilites of the valley as
a whole can not but be materially
anec
broadened by personal acquaint
mice with the conditions of the various different points of the valley.
While this, the northern portion of
the rich and fertile valley, is recognized as the best district—the
premier section of the province
for the growth of winter apples,
other points of the valley are also
suited for the production   of var-iT      .       ,.       .. ,.   .   ,

ing as Tilt: fruit growing district ot .
British Columbia. At Kelowna
one is tit once impressed with the
magnificent orchards to be seen,
the extent to which they produce
fruit being almost marvelous and
quite incredulous to any who havt
no personal knowledge of the capabilities of the district. One of
most notabli
best orchards of the valley is that
of T. W. Stirling. As nn example
of what may be accomplished  by
oarefulland intelligent attention to j f;"r "existaiice through
the fruit industry, we learn  that

•InstiiM was certainly not meted
out to the Okanagan valley iu the
selection of delegates to the con.
vention of Dominion Fruit Grow-.
its' Association at Ottawa this
month. If the provincial association is composed, as it should be.
of representative fruit growers of
the province, they surely have
slighted the just demands of this,
one of the leading fruit growing
districts of the province. 0. M.
Carrnthera, of Kelowna, representing the Okanagan. made a strong
light at the recent convention for
representation for the district, but
was unable to secure the appointment of a delegate from here.
Two delegates are to be sent from
the coast, while the whole of tlle
province east of the Cascades is to
be represented solely by .Martin
Burrill, of Grand Forks, That Mr.
Burrill is an able man for the
position of representative is freely
granted by all having made his
acquaintance, but he can not possibly be in a position to pfoperly
represent tlle views of tlie Okanagan growers.
The Okanagan is recognized as
the coining premier fruit district I
of the Interior and of the province.
lUld with all due deference  to  the
I people of the Kootenays the  Oka-
1 nagan is from the extent of its
fruit production and the quality of
its product, justly entitled to rep-
[ resentation in preference to the
Kootenays. Lust year there were
shipped    from   Okanagan   points
I :!,W)0,000    pounds   of' fruit.   No
other district of similar area in the
province can show an equal record,
in
very way superior to that of  the
coast, and in fairness to the interfile rapidly growing fruit
industry of the valley the Okanagan should   have been given at
least one delegate to the Dominion
convention.

Lent.
Last Wednesday was Ash Wednesday or the beginning of Lent.
The origin of the word is uncertain. The season commemorates
the fasting of Christ for forty days
and nights, and is observed by the
Catholic church by special services, by emphasis of the Christian
virtue of self-denial and renunciation, and by individual abstinence
from favorite pleasures.
Renunciation is the central idea
of Buddhism, but to the followers
of Gantama or Siddartha, the ob-
ject of renunciation was self purification; to Christians it is the imitation of a great ideal and a spiritual preparation for participation
in the joys of Faster.
Like the Festivals of Easter and
Christinas, Lent and the spirit and
customs of Lent, have an important effect on the social customs,
and therefore to some extent on
commerce. Fashionable festivities
are usually suspended and society,
if it does not altogether enter into the spirit of devotion, repent-
ence and abstinence, at least rests
from dissipation.
In the churches of Rome and
England Lent is marked by simplicity of service, by increase of
week-day services, and by cultivation of the spirit of abstinence.
The last day before Lent, commonly known as Miirdi Urns or
Shrove Tuesday, is not projierly a
church festival, but like the carnival of Rome and many other institutions, it is the survival of a concession made by the ltiediaval
church to the frailty of the laity, a
license granted in anticipation of
of the abstinence of the long sea-
eon of Lent.
