M. S. MWdleton,   provincial horti-l
ciilluris-t,   has    spent llie pasl week
very profitably in examining Into the'
nature of the    agricultural resources
o' the   ilistrict tributary  to    Cranhrook.    Mr. Mtddleton is an unbias-.
ed Judge, uml, moreover, he is a tor-
met okanagan settler.     His opinions
therefore may be accepted as entirely •
uninfluenced   by other     than   expert
conclusions.     To hear him talk     ol
what he bas seen In the past      lew j
days would delight  the heart    of the
biggest hoomsii-r t'ranbrook has   ever

very strongly impressed wilh the
really magnificent agricultural posst-
hllillcs of this ilistrict Ile finds

equal to the best in any part of
the province ami be expresses surprise ami regret that more attention
has not been paid to Cranbrook district iu the past hy skilled agriculturists.

Mi.   K.   A.   Russell
ristlale, Mr. Middle- j
ion, iii the past few days, has completed an extensive tour ol Inspection
uf a section of the lands of the Kootenay  Valley.       His object   being, as
previously announced    in these    col !
umns, to gather data relative to   iln-j
possible establishment in this district
ol one of    the proposed government
demonstration farms.
The Itinerary followed on this trip
was as    follows       Crailbiook   lo  Ma

be classifies it as good grange coun

 islderable areas suitable lot   trull
growing ami general agriculture P.
Lund's Hal al Wardner came in loi
special mention Tin- laml in tins
section in* found lo lie easily irrigated and suitable fm anv branch ol ag
glculturc. At Wardner ihe party
crossed ilu- river hy  the-now bridge,
anil      proceeded     up      the   east   side
through an exceptionally fine country,
ilu- soil being particularly good, a
iu'b clin loam, admirably suited for
everj branch of hint growing mnl
agriculture Some extra good bottom land was noted in this section,
horn  which crops nf bay, averaging
Ibree Ions In the acre, were common, This section Mr Middlelon
regards as the choice of the ilistrict.
The magnificent scenery, particularly,
caught bis attention. The numerous
-jrcsli water lakes, providing excellent
fishing ami lhe proximity,of the snow
capped Itocktes adding to the charms
of ihe situation,
Around Wasa Mr. Middlelon noted
considerable good bottom land. There
ii good soil, provided it he properly
drained ami worked. There is abundance of extra good meadow nml gi*n
eral (arming land.
Crossing al Wasa to the w-esl bank
of the river Mr. Middletoii Iravcrseil
ii considerable area ol excellent land,
a good clay loatn, suitable fnr nil
branched of agriculture, provided il
he properly Irrigated. Through
Cherry Creek seel ion he noted considerable bottom laml ami excellent
hay meadows. Hut liefore referring
to the Cherry Creek section, some re
train anil stock country, under present conditions, but with Irrigation
ibis section should prove to be the
banner section of the district (or
any branch of agriculture, The pos
sibilities for fruit growing are excellent so Tar as soil ami location are
concerned, but ii will be nccessarj
lo have water during certain seasons
to secure crops, ami in certain places
w iml brakes would also be very useful. This section, in Mr Middle-
ton's opinion, otters a splendid *y-
portunity for some company to engage in a development scheme. v,
the SI Eugene Mission, Mr. Middle*
lond found practically the only serious attempt at fruit growing with
the exception of a few local Cran-I
brook enterprises, notably that of
Mi w .* Hamilton. The trees were
loaded with blossoms ami the prospects appear all thai could be desired, Very little damage had been
[lone the trees hv the winter frosls
o( 1908-011, which killed off a large |
number  In Okanagan district,
Dealing in a general wav with the
country traversed, Mr Middlelon
spoke ol the lack of development,
whleb was unintelligible in iricw of
ihe nature ol the soil, the area
available, tin- climatic conditions, all
of which are quite favorable for, all
branches of agriculture. The price
ol land In this district, he remarked,
nas most conducive lo quick settlement, it being cheaper than iu parts
of Manitoba and Infinitely lower than
iu lhe southern valleys ol British
Columbia. Poi the settler of limited means he knew of no section of
ihe province thai could offer such
Inducements as docs the section miller discussion in addition to tin*
good character of tlie soil, there nre
ihe advantages ol exceptionally good
local markets and IransTportoUon
Ou iht* subnet ol Irrigation, Mr.
Mtddleton bail some timely remarks
io oiler. The area, roughly speak-
nu:. tributary to Cranhrook ami requiring irrigation, is about 800,000
acres, all of which may be classed
as good agricultural land, There is
in addition n larg*c area ot first-class
pasture laud. Owing to the altitude of the Selkirk range the precipitation fulls principally on the
western slope, consequently making
the section under discussion a dry
belt area. The average rainfall is
.mm 12 to 2u Inches, quite sufficient
to mature the majority of annual
crops, but insufficient tor the perennial crops ami fruit trees, ll will
then-fore be necessary during certain
seasons lo, provide Irrigation, One
feature iu particular that tbis section possesses Is an abundant source
of supply from the numerous streams
lial,lwo Better than okanng
draining ihe large ranges on either
side. This feature makes irrigation
a commercial proposition, in this
connection Mr. Middlelon drew attention lo a report appearing in
Official     Bulletin No.  Ill, which com

The oath was administered to i\w

King Kdwurd VII.
There wen* present at tin- meeting
Mayor Fink and Aldermen Hunt,

Mayor Kink at once intimated thut
in liis opinion, us u murk of respect
the lute sovereign, they should

nnd the royul family.
On motion of Aldermen Hunt uud

In making ibis motion. Alderman
Hunt remarked that tlie circumstances were so unusual and so distressing that he thought some reference thereto by the council would

be taken us a precedent. Whilst we

fair sized crowd. Cranbrook won
the toss und elected to play against

half-buck play kept the hall at

prevented the home team scoring.
After continued raids on Movie's
goul, F . Reid scored from center.
Moyie could make no headway against
tlie clever home defence. The first
half finished witb Cranbrook leading
by one goal to nil, after having all
tlie play. It was fully expected
that Moyie would make it hot (or tin*
nils iu the second half, but ns in the
lirst, they were completely mastered
by the home defence Some clever
play hy Miller and a lovely cross by
Wallace placed Henderson in possession and he had no difficulty in registering number two for Cranbrook.
The game continued us lu the first
half, Moyie being no match for the
reds, only the brilliance of Perkins
in Movie's goal prevented Cranbrook
from putting up a record score.
With about fifteen minutes to go
Moyie wakened up a little and almost scored, Marshall just missing.
Bartholomew cleared very nicely
when things looked dangerous and

with u good shot. A tew minutes

with the score stumling: Crnnhrook,

It has been said ol the new King

The death of the King bus been the
all absorbing topic of discussion tbe
past few days. The newspapers have
been filled with eulogistic references

the Hritish empire There is little

praise and respectlul appreciation
that have been poured forth these
past few davs. Prom all parts of
ih.- world Uu- comment upon Uu- late
King's career is practically the same.
Not onlv liis own people, but the
peoples of every race and clime, have
united in sinning the praises of the
dead monarch. Certainly King Kdward VII. well merited the praise
lliat has been su lavishly heaped upon his memory all this week, inning his short reign be undoubtedly
devoted himself to Hu- faithful performance of his duties In a maimer

viees faithfully performed, it was an

lie in general on thr subject of a becoming ami appropriate method      to
celebrate   the  sixtieth   year     of      Ins
mother's reign, evidenced unmistakably the natural kindness of tils disposition "Having ascertained Irom

a project lying very near my heart,
its object being to attach the sentl
ment of gratitude for the blessing:
which ibe country has* enjoyed during
the lasl sivty years fo it scheme ol
permanent      beneficence" That
scheme, as lhe Prince went on lo
sav, concerned the finances of ihe
hospitals of London, which had long
been a source of deep anxiety Alter

existing financial condition of ihe
London hospitals, ihe Crime came to

"Canada is measuring her limber

"Tlie average saloon is the must

ileal* lu lhe heart of Ihe public

ami prospects of early completion ol

$15,000 would he expended Ihis year
ni the .Cloaticl-Crnnbrook section of

lie cxpci'tcil Ihe mail would he I'om-
lilclcd from boundary lo boundary,

of the Cranhrook hoard of trade, look

make certain representations to him.
An g other    tilings they discussed
with him lhe progress of lhe trans-
provincial wagon load, ami in that
connection learned thai the old mad
from Cranbrook to Wardner is to he
patched ap fm this year, hut that
next year's appropriations will contain a vole lor the const ruction of a
short cut between these two points.
From Mr. Taylor's remarks they
gathered thai tht* sooner action is
taken wilh regard to any new roads
lhat may in* required iu this district
the better it will he. Ilccommcnda-
tious of the hoard of Irade. made
jusl about the lime the legislature
meets cannot very well receive Immediate attention, llic rule being lu
refer all such hack tu the local resident engineer tu report upon. So
that tile wisest course to Jiursm* is
lo have all mail requirements discussed hy the hoard of Irade early
in Hit* year, their recommendations
can then go into the minister
ample Unit' to permit uf liis making
the necessary enquiries through his
engineers and providing for same

for the new plough did a better jnh
and a quicker job also. In about
ten years after "the man ol nerve,"
the man who frightened teams, and
all those kind of things, owned a big
share nf all the laud that adjoined
him and wanted to buy the balance
of it. In my lirst remembrance nf

to see it.) There is in the world
a strong desire for progress and ad
vanccment, also a grasping for knowledge among the people of today and
in no line is il more conspicuous
than among poultry fanciers and
raisers Years ago if someone had
told our great grandfathers nf the
future discoveries, which are in vogue
at the present day, Ihey (inn great
grandfathers) would have said that
such ideas were crazy ami thai ihe
person ol such ideas should lie shut

feed must consist of the proper ingredients to make a fertile egg, yet
ihe same quality of food will imt

revolutionized poultry keeping by
creating a demand for eggs to incubate every day iu the year. The
cause of Infertility during the hoi

people would save many a dollar, also a greal deal of disappointment,
if they would well study the work
before they undertake to branch oul

and preparation to become proficient

my poor broken heart I wish to express to tbe whole nation uud our
kind people we love so well my deep-
felt thanks fur all their touching
ympatby in my overwhelming sorrow und  iiirspeukuhle anguish.
'Not alone have I lost everything

upon us.     His will Ik* done.
"Give him thought in your prayers, which will comfort and sustain
me in all that I have to go through.
Let me take this opportunity of expressing my heartfelt thanks (or all
the toiiclmm letters and tokens ol
sympathy I have received from all

One of tbe lirst messages issued by
King George, who bus long been
known us the "Sailor Prince," was
addressed to the navy. In il tbe
King says:
"It is my wish on succeeding to
tbe throne to make known to the
navy how deeply grateful I am for
its faithful and distinguished ser-
viivs, rendered to the late King, my
heloveil father, wbo ever showed the
greatest solicitude fur its welfare and
"Kducated and trained in that profession which I love so dearly, retirement from duty has in no sense
diminished my feelings of affection
for it. For *.i years I bave bad the
honor of serving in the navy and such
intimate participation in its life and
work enables me to know how thoroughly I can depend upon lhat spirit
of loyalty and zealous dcotion to
duly ot which tlie glorious history of
our navy is tlie outcome That yo*
will ever continue to be as in llie
past the lorrmost defender uf your
country's lionor, 1 klto* full well,
and your fortunes will always tie

pride, affection and interest

('aides denote tbe 0msternation
aroused throughout the empire on
Friday by the* sudden announced illness ot the King This deepened into the proloiindcst regret ut tlie
news of his death. ^	
A Sydney, N.S.W., despatch slates
that Australians were entirely
shocked by tee news, previous message*, not having prepared them for
ihe worst so soon. Universal
mourning WM observed with special
services in the churches Sunday
sports* were abandoned and places of
amusement closed.
New Zealand similarly was plunged
into the deepest mourning.
A   message      from    .tobannesuurg
the world lias sustained.
It is announced thai tbe foi mat

Overseas States will not be published

The following telegram bas been

Colonial secretary:
"Your telegram of May 8th bas

pathy of tbe governor-general, ministers and people of tbe Dominion of
Canada. Loyalty and affection uf
His Majesty's subjects of the King's
dominions beyond tbe seas are a
source of great consolation to their
Majesties and to the Royal family iu
iheir sad bereavement."
There was a striking scene ul Si
■ tames Itomaii Catholic cathedral in
Montreal ou Friday night following
ihe announcement of the king's
death. Over four hundred children
were in tlie church al tending Iheir
lirst communion, willi Archbishop
liruchesi officiating, when the news
of His Majesty's passing away was
received. Immediately all the congregation knelt while the archbishop
recited the prayers for Hie dead. The
scene was most impressive us his
grace referred feelingly lo the loss
the whole empire and Canada hud
.sustained by the death of the illustrious monarch.
His grace subsequently sent tbe
following message to the governor*
general: "Tbe sudden deutti of our tic-
loved sovereign has plunged the liritisli empire in mourning. Iu the
death of His Majesty we lose a
greal and good king. The late king
was an admirable peacemaker and wi
haw not forgotten in our grateful
hearts that he solemnly constituted
himself tbe protector ut our religious
liberties. The nine years of his
reign were prolific in great and beautiful accomplishments. I • i
therefore, Your Kxcellency to convey
to Her Majesty the Queen and the
royal family my most sincere and respectful sympathy, with that of my
clergy and all tbe Komati Catbolb
of my diocese."
On Saturday morning the bells of
all the Human Catholic churches in
tbe diocese were tolled, and on tbe
day of the king's funeral a solemn
service will be held.
Hon. T. II. Paterson, lieutenant-
governor of Hritish Columbia, says of
bis late Majesty's death:
"The news of tbe death of our beloved king has caused a feeling of
sadness to settle upon the hearts of
the royal people of Hritish Columbia,
whieli will be felt for many u day.
Every true citizen of this province is
in mourning for Britain's greatest
king and man."
"Hritish Columbians, always truly
loyal to the throne, will mourn in
common wilh millions of bis late Majesty's subjects throughout the empire his deplorable demise," said
Premier Mcllride a few minutes after
the first intimation reached the provincial capital that* "the Peacemaker
of Kurope" bad passed away.
"We, in this westernmost province." tlie premier continued, "have
always been more or less directly
under the eye ul (he sovereign, and
il seems only the other ilay thai wt

his way to inquire as to tlie location

and subsequently eXprvsttiiig his much
appreciated favorable opinion of that
display and bis good wishes for our
development and prosperity.
"The incident, so typical of the
monarch's kindliness and broad sympathies wilh the life and well-being
of his people, brought very directly
to us the feeling that we possessed,
as we undoubtedly did, the friendly
and sympathetic interest of our king,
Those ot us who may have had some
brief experience in the motherland,
know how very near the hearts of the
people His Majesty was As a man,
as well as a monarch, Kim* Kdward
typified the finest characteristic qualities of bis nation's manhood. What
more can be said of His Majesty now

message from the (^ueen Dowager in
response to a telegram of sympathy:
"Buckingham Palace, May T
"The Queen sends her sincere
thanks for your kindly expression of

An impressive incident yesterda)
illustrates Queen Alexandra's desire
to show consideration tor subject* ol
every class. General Booth sent a
message that the Salvation Army
Wished to show honor to King bid-
ward's memory bj holding a service
before the Palace and tlie l/t.i-eii gave
permission. At I o'clock a large
band, carrying silver instruments and
banners with scarfs of crepe, pushed
their way through the crowd to the
Palace entrance. Tbe big iron
gates were opened and the band
formed a circle under the windows
First they knelt, while the lender
prayed, and then they sang "Nearer,
My God, to Thee." "Abide With
Me." "Angels Evet Bright and
Fair " Finally they marched out
singing "Onward, Christian Soldiers."
The blinds were closely drawn, but
the attendants say that giie-en Alexandra left her apartments witb Princess Victoria and ber ladies-m-wait-
iiig, ami listened to the singing.
The services |q all tlie churches
throughout the l Dsled Kingdom yesterday had special reference to the
death of the King. The sermons all
dealt with ihe nation's grief, and the
music was such as is customary at
funeral services. Immense crowds
attempted to obtain entrance to St.
Paul's Cathedral and Westminster
Abbey, but only a small fraction was
One of ibe simplest observances
