1BOUT everything In this pan of the
J world, except the C. P. R. seems to
jhave a warm spot In lis heart (or En
{derby and a yearning lo «ee Eden.
iBut. then, you see. the C P. R. hasn't
any heart. The clerk ot the weather has always
stood In with Enderby, old-timers tell us, and, no
matter how hard it m'ghi rain the day before and
the day alter, the sun Is sure to smile upon us on
the day we celebrate.
Tuesday the weather was Ideal. In the early
morning, a light fog hung over lhe river, but before
7 o'clock It had lilted. The sunshine brought joy
and gladness lo (he heart of nature and of man.
The birds In the meadows made lite seem lo be all
a song. By 9 o'clock the happy crowds began lo
arrive. They came from Armstrong. Vernon, Hull
car, Knob Hill, and all points along the line A
few had come by train from Mara By 11 o'clock
lhe streets in all directions were lined on each
side with carriages. The crowd numbered 800 or
1000, and It was the merriest, the best natured.
and the most sociable that could come (rom any
where. They had come from happy, prosperous
homes to Eden, and. you see. couldn't help being
happy. And, as happiness always radiates, li
radiated on this occasion Considering the fact
thai no special train was provided, and that all who
came had to do so by their own conveyance, it was
a remarkably fine gathering The train crew on
the local, showed that their hearts were right side
out by decorating the engine with dags
The programme committee, and the committees
having charge of the sports, are lo be congratu
laled on the excellent manner in which the games
and contests were carried out Everything went
as smoath as a clock runs: there wasn't any de
lays, no jangling, and all the awards were satis
factory to the contestants
The Enderby hotel look care ol the larger por
lion of the crowd. Seating capacity for SO vas
provided, and lhe hungry were quickly led Then
booths and refreshment stands were provided on
the grounds by the ladies of St George's Guild an I
others, and MlS3 Garnett accommodated many al
her lunch rooms.

We believe ll Is every man's duly to

spread over to much of Canada with
reference to this great province of our's.
Notwithstanding that much has
been written about the climate ol
British Columbia, many mlsconcep-
tlonr appeaa to prevail on the subject
outside ol the province. In some quarters, through contusion with the northwest Interior ol the Dominion, an Im-
preaslon has been formed that al least
to the east ot the Coast Range fearful
extremes of cold are to be endured by
Ihe Inhabitants: while In others, through
a misapprehension of the report* ot
travelers, it has been Imagined that the
climate ol the coast resembles thai ol
the shores of the Mediterranean. In1

ol Provincial Information, many facta

Lieut Col. Baker, after some years'
residence In Ihe Interior, some lime
ago made some observations on lite
climatic conditions as experienced by
him: The rainfall averages from 18
to 20 Inches, The winters extend
from the latter part ol December lo
March. Navigation on lhe Upper
Columbir closes about the beginning ol
November: on the Arrow Lakes and
Lower Columbia, not till the end of ihe
month: It opens again about the middle of March. The Kootenay Lake
does nol freeie over. During the
winter the thermometer falls at limes
considerably below *ero. and In summer rises as high is SO and 90 degrees
In the shade, the nights being always
comparatively cool. The extreme
cold Is nol severely fell, and Is of short
duration, nor Is Ihe summer heal exhausting, as In Ihe Interior of the continent. Vegetation Is rarely affected
by drought, and, although summer
Irons occasionally cause damage In
swampy localities, their effect* are
modified by drainage and cultivation.
In the Spallumcheen Valley, and. Indeed, the whole of the Okanagan, a
climate la experienced typical of the
milder and more moist conditions
which prevail in ihe wide depressions
once formed by glacial likes, tnd
which may be said to present a mean
between the dryneat of the true bunch-
grass country and the humidity ot the
coast. The limber Is here plemiful
but scittered. vegetation is varied and
luxuriant, the rainfall sufficient to obviate the need of Irrigation, the summer not aii'itvlabty eilfaring tmm thai

A grass widow who ought to

speaks wisdom as follows:
Nine tenths of the divorces and
unhappy marriages are the result of green human beings being allowed to run at large In
society paths without a yoke on
them. They marry and have
children before Ihey have mus
.taches. They are fathers of
(twins before they are proprle
tors of two pairs of pants: :.nd
the little girls they marry are
old women before they are
twenty. Occasionally one of
these gosling marriages turns
out all right, but It is a sheer
case of luck or wide awake
moiher-ln-law: If there was a
law against young galoots
sparking and marrying before
cutting their eye-teeth. I sup
pose the little men would evade
It some way. But there ought
to be a sentiment against ll It
Is time enough f r them to
think of finding a pullet when
they have saved enough money
to buy a bundle of lath to make
a hen house. But they see a
girl that looks cunning, and they
are afraid there are not going
to be enough to go around, and
ihey begin to spark real spry,
and before they are aware of
the sanctity of the marriage re
lation they are hllchH for life,
and before Ihey own a cook-
stove or a bedstead they have
to get up in the night and g
after the doctor, so frlghteneo
that they run themselves out o!
breath and abuse the doctor
■ because he doesn't run too
And when the doctor gets there,
