THE  FRUIT INDUSTRY.
A Source ol   Wealth To   Tho
brook District,   And    Thn
of Southeaat   Kootenay.
One ni the latent resoutcea o!
Southeast Kootenay hus been merely
a matter t>l discussion when representatives o! horticultural aocietlea on
a round from the cgast spend a duy
iu Oranbrook. Judging by the al
tendance at those meetings little ap
parent interest has been taken in
these discussions by the general public. To arouse ua Interest and to
dive a substantial Impulse to a
question which so closely affects
Southeast Kootonuy will be the duty
Oi The Prospector. It avails little
indulging In blatant tirades against
Oriental labor when one of tho moat
promising resources of the country
is neglected. Few people realize
thnt the capabilities of Southeast
Kootenny is not confined to tbe production of minerals, timber and coul,
but that in tlie highest degree tht
country is pre-eminently fitted to
produce fruit of the best quality;
that one of the best markets is virtually at the door, the Northwest,
Alberta and Saskatchewan will be a
never failing market, und there is no
reason why Southeast Kootenay and
the Oranbrook district should not
become a never failing source of supply. And this may be assured by
an intelligent application of the
knowledge und skill developed in
other parts of the province in the
production of the fruit which already
has made the province famous und
has Riven it the well deserved title
of the "Orchard ot Canada." Aud
one muy never fear the result that
the supply may exceed the demand.
For our neighbors in Alberta, increasing yenr by year its vast areas
of wheat fields, Kootonay must be
alive to its own interest and see
that the supply of fruit which these
new provinces mny require be shipped from tbe valleys and dales in an
abundant measure, the capability
of the country to produce an excellent quality of apple La sufficiently J
tested to insure confidence in the engaging of the production of fruit to
an unlimited extent. Of course, it
is well understood that a great variety is not feasible. The condition
of altitude militates against a profusion of variety but the condition
of u sunny sky is one of the chief
influences in the production of the
most luscious fruit. And the hardy
varieties are ever the most salable.
It is the purpose of The Prospector
to devote a share of its columns to
the best methods of cultivating,
pruning and selecting the most suitable species ior cultivation.
have followed tbe proceedings of tbe
House, would like to ask the Herald
tu point out what our member has
done, or ever tried to accomplish,
In reading the proceedings from duy
to duy since the opening of the ses
sion, we note ono, and only one
occasion where tho member has
placet! himself on record as attempting tu do anything for this district,
and this, a most Important question
was, wben lie asked the Minister of
Lands und Works,"If it was tbe intention of the government to build
a brldgo, or construct a ferry across
the Kootenay  river at Wardner,"
our member was conspicuous by
his silence when tlie appropriation of
$1,000 wus voted lor the extension of
the St. Mary's road. Perhaps the
Herald will give our member due
credit fur his very earnest and ac.
tlve part he took In getting this
much needed appropriation.
It. is the opinion of many lhat our
Dominion ami Provincial representu-
tives actions, as reported by tbe
Herald, should be taken "Cum
Grano Sulis."

Ot interest   Tu    Intending    Settlers.
This is the weather that makes

Already it is evident thut quite a
number of people will come to this
district this year in search of fruit
lands, nnd lands tu settle upon nnd
to make their homo. One class of
■fettlers, who appear to he anxious
to loolt uver this district will come
rom the prairie provinces, and to
hear out this fact, we have been informed that a large exclusion party
uf Intending settlers and purchasers
of fruit and agricultural luuds, will
leave Calgary during the coming
month fur this district. They nre
men who have made tortunes funning on the prairie, and arc seeking
a mure congenial climate, where

EDITORIAL   COMMENT.
Tbe Toronto Mail and Empire's
Ottawa correspondent says Sir Wilfrid Laurier muy uppeal to the country early in November. As guesses
go, this may prove a good one.
Everybody knows thut a general
election will be held at a comparatively enrly date; the only room for
speculation is uk to how soon the
government will summon sufficient
courage to take the plunge. It is
understandable, in view of the disturbed industrial conditions over the
greater portion of the continent,
that a greut incentive exists to delay bringing on the contest in the
hope that conditions may improve.
The feeling is universul that the
present depression is only temporary
and that with the advent of spring
und tbe commencement of work on
huge railway enterprises normal conditions will be restored. Therefore
it is only natural thut Sir Wilfrid
should he (disposed to "wait till the
clouds roll by." As fur us the political situation in llritish Columbia is
concerned, the people are prepared to
pronounce their verdict tomorrow,
nnd thut is, one of want of confidence in the present Ottawa administration.
KOOTENAV    CENTRAL.

Galliher, M. P. who represents this
district in the Dominion House, in
answer to uu Inquiry regarding un

"You nre quite right regnrdlng the
extension of li, ('. Southern charter.
The renewal in no way affects tbe
Kootenay Central  Railway."

PROCLAMATION,
The
Smifti Premier
Typewriter
has widened its market until it includes the whole civilized world; has become the
typewriter of over 300,000
operators and has, during
1906, broken every previous
record of sales, because it
has from the beginning best
met every typewriter need.
THE tri-color feature of
the Smith Premier
Typewriter is recognized as the greatest improvement in modern typewriter construction—yet in
providing it, none of the
strong fundamental features, for which the Smith
Premier has always been
noted, have been sacrificed.

Provincial Government Vote $1,000
For Extension of Road
Appended Is the speech of VV.
R. Ross M. P, P. who In debate
supported the extension of Ihis
road:-
W. R. Ross, Pernie: I do noi
rise, sir, for the purpose, of ob
jeetiii;; to this vole, whicli, on
the contrary, 1 heartily support,
but because, while discussing the
estimates the other day, an hon.
member for Rossland drew attention to the appropriations for
uew work in this part of the
province in n disparaging milliner, as far us Pernie is concerned, and I wish to show how
things really stand, I may say
that the constituency of Cranbrook. which is one of the old
electorial divisions of the province nnd purl of what was at
one lime southeasl Kootenuy
when it was represented by Col.
Baiter, who was a member of the
government, was well looked
after in the way of roads, und
Cranbroolt, which is a beautiful
park-like country, now possesses
a magnificent chain of trunk
roads, and so good are thoy thai
some gentlemen who live in the
riding and who are the linppy
possessors of automobiles use
hem n great deal. And I am
pleased to note that no objections
have heen raised lo this vote by
the member who represents
Oranbrook in tliis house (Dr.
King) ami who is the fortunate
owner of what is perhaps the
speediest and mosl luxurious
automobile in the bunch. (Hear,
hear.) In the districl of Pernie,
which to n large extent is
noiintninoiis. would naturally
ucl* the facilities for wagon
roads which arc possessed by
sonic other parts ofthe province, |
but nevertheless ihe city of Per !
nic is one of the three liuestl
cities iu thu province, being only
exceeded by the cities of Victoria
ami Vancouver, lor the cily of
Pernie certainly comes next, aud
ihis fact may afford somecomfort
to members of the opposition,
who represent more ambitions,
perhaps, but much less progressive and desirable contitu-
eiicio. (Hear, hear, and applause.) The vole was agreed
iu.

CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS have revolutionited tutor making   they are TEMPERED BY ELECTRICITY, which is
OUR OWN EXCLUSIVE SECRET PROCESS   the stetl  used in their manufacture is ol  the finest English and
Swedish make.   This wonderful discovery is the result ol ye.irs ol experiment and study, and at last there has been
produced a »a:or that will sh.ivc any beard, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH.
ELECTRIC TEMPERING addi CARBON to the steel} whereas tempering by fire, (the only other method known for
centuries) DESTROYS the CARBON which is the life of steei.   All oiher makes ol razors must be HONED  AND  GROUND
often, as their blades will NOT hold an edge any length ol time.   CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS do not require HONING
or GRINDING during t  lifetime in  private use; they are  all  tempered   alike, every   part of their blades being  subjected to
the same AMPERES OF ELECTRICITY.  CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS are ground FIVE times by the HAMBURG
METHOD, the most expensive grinding known.
VOUR DEALER will deliver to you one of these CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS on 30 days' trial, wi'hout
obligation on your part to purchase—take advantage ol this opportunity. Break away from the barber habit! You will save
$50 00 annually.
Call on our representatives in your town, and request a copy ol "Hints On Shaving" This booklet illustrates the
correct razor position for shaving every part of the face (ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN FROM LIFE) it also tells
you HOW TO STROP A RAZOR PROPERLY; should our dealer be out of them, drop us a card, and we will send you
one by return mail.

Steel Ware?
/.V. ./vv,' it fasts for years-
It'a all Imported lhe ware, not the love.. But all imported
ware isn't Strunsky. When enameled ware is offered as
"Imported" look at tho label. If n reads: "Imported
Quadruple Coated Stransky Steel Ware," you have "The
Ware that Wears." We havi- tht genuine, and here the prices
are right, of courts.
