J. H. Todd, Ag��rt_ New Westminster B.C,
BY  T.   W.   K.
Dear Sir,���A few lines on a trip
over the C. P. R. may be interesting to a few, at least, of the many j
readers of the Delta Times.
I left New Westn inster Oct. 6th.
From Westminster Junction the Atlantic Express went out in two sections. The frst section took the
baggage and eleven coaches, this
was a heavy train, and at times
dropped behind time, causing; a delay to section No. 2 which f..lowed
closely. This section had uine
coache-- comfortably filled.
Darkness setting in, we sa w very
little until we had passed the Inland capital, Kamloops���a prosperous little town, but destined to become au Ottawa-Hull to the lumbering industries of the Interior.
Kamloops is 251 miles from Vancouver; altitude, n 60 feet; population, 1700.
The country along the railway
is not very enticing to the land
seeker, until Salmon Arm is reached. This is a very nke valley j
bordering on Shuswap Lake.'
Nineteen miles up the line we
come to Sicamous Junction, a
distributing point for the agricultural district to the south, where
there is a large settlement. A
branch line runs to Vernon and the
Okanagan Valley. Near Kelowna,
on the lake shore, 35 miles irom
Vernon, Lord Aberdeen, formerly
Governor-General ot Canada, has
farms and another small holding of
13,000 acres a few miles from Vernon, employing a small army of
men and growing fruits of all kinds
that thc temperate zone will produce. In conversation, a gentleman from Kelowna said there was
an average of six carloads of fruit
shipped daily during the fruit season, which finds a ready market in
the prairie country west of Winnipeg*
From Sicamous the main line
ascends the valley of the Eagle
River, which passes through the
gold range, also forests of spruce,
Douglas fir, hemlock and cedar,
many of these trees being giants.
Three   hundred   and    fifty one
miles from Vancouver Craigellachie
is reached, altitude 1450 feet, here
the last spike was driven in the C.
P. R., Nov. 7, 1885, the rails from
the east and west meeting  here.
Nineteen   miles  up  the   line we
come to Clanwilliam in Eagle Pass,
altitude 1996 feet.   Here the scenery is beautiful, the valley is so
deep with walls almost perpendicular that it seems to have been purposely   provided   for the railway.
Tlie next eight miles is remarkable
for the  quick  descent, which   is
about 65>_  feet per mile, to the
Columbia River.   Soon after crossing this river we come to Revelstoke, the northern gateway to the
Kootenay  mining camps.    Revelstoke (new C. P. R. town) is about
a  mile-and-half   ftom   tbe  river
nicely situated between two mouti
tains with a population of about
1700, altitude  1475 feet, a railway
division point 379 miles from Vancouver.   Here an observation car,
designed  to  allow  an   unbroken
view  of the   wonderful  mountain
scenery, is attached to the Imperial
Limited.   It was well  patronized
and many snap shots were taken of
the beautiful, towering snow-capped
peaks as the train slowly ascended
the Selkirk range. Tn many places
the pass is so narrow the railway
CROWE-DEVEREAUX.
A very pretty wedding took place
on Tuesday last, at All Saints,
Trenant, when Miss Violet Daisy
Deveieaux was united iu the bonds
of boly matrimony to Robert
Crowe, of Nanaimo. Rev. Canon
Hilton officiated.
Miss Devereaux was one of cur
popular young ladies and made a
handsome 'bride and was supported
by Miss Davy, of Vancouver, as
bridesmaid, and Misses Tessie
Pritchard of Vancouver, and Gladys
Devereaux, sister of the bride, as
flower girls.
The bride was given away by her
brother, G. Devereaux.
Robert Crowe is one of Nanai-
tao's prosperous young men, and
received his support from oflr popular wharfinger, Wni. Siddall.
After the marriage ceremony was
over the bridal party drove to the
residence of the bride's mother,
where a sumptuous repast was partaken of, at the close of which the
happy couple drove to New Westminster where they entrained for
a tour of the Sound cities.
Robt. Crowe, one of the South
African war veterans, received information, a short white since, tbat
he had received second prize in the
competition for designs for a monument to be erected iu Eastern Canada, to the Canadians who fell in
South Africa. There were over
eighty original designs presented
and it is a high credit to Mr. Crowe'
that his design was accorded second
place among the number.

DRAWING
The Tremendous Success attending Our Drawing
Last Year has determined Us to hold
Another this Xmas.
Looking Backward*
.LAST CHRISTMAS Our Stock of Christmas Toys, China,
Glassware and Fancy Goods was the Admiration of Our Customers ; the general verdict being that it was by far the Best
.Assortment Ever Shown in Ladner. The Result of Our Innovation was most Gratifying to Us. Firstly, We practically Sold
Out Our Entire Stock of Christmas Goods; and, Secondly,
almost the Entire District took an Interest in Our Drawing, as
Evidenced by the fact that there were about 250 People Present
at the Drawing in Our Store last Chiietinas Eve.
/
Looking Forwards
ENCOURAGED. BY .LAST SEASON'S SUCCESS We
have Bought Three Times the Christmas Goods We did last
year, and feel satisfied that when the goods are all in we will
have an .Assortment to Satisfy Everyone, and We Mean to Sell
Them at Prices to Defy Competition. We intend also to have
Our Drawing This Christmas Eve to far Eclipse .Last Season.
