Our neighboring town of Vernon
wae the scene of a most tragic suicide last Sunday night, when R. J,
Holmes, the dry goods clerk in R.
W. Megaw's store took hiB own
life while in a Btate of despondency following drinking. That
the deed was premedinted was
plainly shown by the fact that a
rope had been so arranged that if
the shot from the 38 calibre revol-
ver failed in its deadly duty the
rash act would would have, been
completed by hanging. The
deceased was a young man well
liked/by all who new him, but is
6aid to have at one time taken the
Keely cure for the liquor habit
and Bince that time wan seriously
affected,by even vnry light drink-
inif. Two letters left on hiB table,
one to a lady in Manitoba to whom
be was engaged to be married and
one to an old friend. Wm. .lohn-
sou. a commercial traveller, who
happened to be iu town, briefly
stated that his people lived at
Orangeville, Out., and gave, instruct! onB to notify them and to
bury bis body at Venicn. Upon
advice from his people, however,
the remains were sent to Orangeville on Wednesday.
Two More New Families Welcomed
Two families with eat b a car-
load of effects have takon up their
residence in the Armstrong district during the past week The
first was that of H. Bolt, from near
Gleich»n, Alta. It will beremem
bered by many of our readers that
Mr. Bolt came to Armstrong early
in th.j spring and after spending a
Bhort time in looking around purchased twenty acres of the Jack-
son-Morgan holding. Returning
home he succeeded in disposing of
his Btock ranch in Alberta and at
once liegau preparations lor taking
tip bis residence here. Mrs. Bolt
ie'a winter ol Mrs. Bourne, and
with their father,Uev, J. Ferule,
all have tracts adjoining. The
other settler of this week was .las.
Sneesby. lute of Regina. 8n«k.,
who iB now here to take charge of
the Harold Fletcher farm purchased by him a couple of months
ago. Mr. Sneesflby has in this
farm one of the beBt locations on
tbe eastern border of the valley.
and with the good improvements
that go with the place he is at once
in shape to go right ahead wit'i
active farming, which we trust lie.
will find remunerative to the full
measure of his moat, sanguine ox-1
pectations. Onr district lB-gradn.|

the very best element of people
wbn are seeking refuge from the
rigorouB climate of the prairies.
Sudden Death of Lola VuAntwerp
The numerous friends of Engineer Van Antwerp, the popular
and highly respected driver on the
branch line for the paBt fourteen
years, sincerely sympathise with
him and his family in their great
bereavement caused by the death
last Snturdny evening of his
daughter, Miss Lulu. The deceased was Wi !1 known in Armstrong
and highly esteemed by all her
friends throughout the valley.
Only u bhort time ago 6he w.-is
visiting friends hi re and was in
the full enjoyment of perfect
health. A couple of weeks 113a
the family went for a camping trip
to the shon s c f Okanagan lake,
and while there Miss Lulu sustained a bite or sting from an insect,
thought to be a black spider. The
apparently slight wound was it
once given attention, camp broken
and the family returned home
where medical treatment could be
secured, yet despite all that could
be done erysiplas set in and after
an illness of jnst one week hej
yonng life was taken away. Miis
Lulu w;ib just fourteen years of
age, bright, intelligent and in
every way giving promise of a
noble and respected womanhood.
The funeral occured from their
home at Okanagan Landing rn
Monday to the Vernon cemetery,
where interment took place, the
funeral services being conducted
by Kev. Lambert, of the Church of
England, and attended by a ivj
large attendance of friends.
Water Record Decision.
An iittoresting application for
water record -.v.-is decided by Gov.
eminent Agent Tunstallyesterday.
Mr. Heggie, manager of the 8tep-
ney ranch, applied for a record on
the creek on which Mr. Hassard.of
Enderby, already holds an old time
j record. The city of Enderby had
also wanted a record on  the  same
creek, bnt Mr. Hassard's record
could in 1 in- attacked and Mr.
Heggie had to be content with n
record subject to the j.rior claims
of Mr. Hassard. J, 1). gwanson

Landing to .Penticton le afforded a
boat trill of iihty-five miles, the
scenery on either side being among
the most ploturespue among the
many beautiful scenes for which
British Columbia is noted, and as
one in borne along at a lively rate
by the steamer Aberdeen the cool,
refreshing breezes from the lake
afford a happy JeBplte from the
hot ami dusty atmosphere of the
shore. The Aberdeen is a well
appointed steamer, and not the
least noticeable feature of the trip
iu the careful consideration given
the passengers by its officers.
li'roiu Captain Esterbrook and the
jovial purser, «1. A. McDonald, all
through the list of officers there is
seen the most apparent geniality
and accommodation.
The numerous stops made en-
route afford u .good opportunity for
gaining an idea of the production
at, many points along the lukesbore
where from a distance there appears to be no agricultural land.
At all of these unpretentious piers
there are taken aboard fruit and
vegetable products in varying
quantities.and casual inquiry elicits
that the owners of-these '-ranches"
are securing large annual returns
nud if they so desired could dispose of theii holdings at very good
prices. One instance of this; was
given os. A MSO-acre tract which
from the deck of tbe boat appears
to tie extremely bluffy and upon
which there are improvements to
the amount o£ perhaps sJntKIO ie-

the owner of tbe large   areas   ex-

years immense .areas   have   been
subdivided into small fruit farms,
irrigation systems have been provided    and    an   almost  miraculous development in both the town
and surrounding district resulted.
Although only a few of  the orch-

Aims to do its full and complete share in the upbuilding and J
advancement of Armstrong and
distrirt. It is the only paper that-
is owned and published. Lure, hence
the only medium devoting its every
energy to the interests of the dis-1
trict: it is in no way handicapped j
by any restraining obligations toj
any party, clique, creed or corporation, but has a perfectly free hand
to at all times promote the inter-!
ests of the town and community in
in which it gains its existence.
No efforts are being spared to make
the ADVANCE the clas6 of paper the
people want—a good live local
paper. Special attention is paid
to chronicleing every item of interest to the local resident and to|
the publication of such articles as I
will attract the interest of outsiders
toour district. With this end in
view we aim to have-
A suscrier to Every!
Home in tne Dlsrrict.
The exceptions of the homes
where the paper is not read in this[
district are now very few. which
fact shows that the past efforts of
the publisher have not been in
vain. In onr advertising depart-1
merit every effort is put torth to
protect the home merchant. Foreign advertising in not solicited,
nor will it be adopted from firms
who seek to compete with the local
business men.
