Letter From the South
\\ e are in receipt ol a letter from
VV.   J.    Stover,    written    at    Eagle
Point, Boyne River Valley, Oregon,
where lhe writer was spending a
day   before   continuing   his   flight
southward. He savs that alter
leaving Seattle he struck summer
Weather and that garden truek was
still standing outside. It was not
all sunshine how vv ei', fog, rain and
mud detracting Irom the effect.
Boyne Kiver Valley be savs is ■
peach (a large juicy one like vw
grow here) for farming, but no better than Kereineos tor frail growing. His friend whom he was visiting    was    well    pleased    with   the
country and bad been offered  twice
as much for hia lot as he paid lor it
last spring. Another old friend,
Mi. Hablert of Wenatchee, has recently sold his 7-aere fruit lot at
$3,000 an acre. Mr. Stover eon-
eludes his letter with a word of encouragement lo Keremeos friends
aiul promises lo   virile   again   from

Christmas Display.
With (he approach of Christmas
business placea in Keremeos are assuming a holiday tfarh, though it
must he admitted that in the majority of cases the preparations are on
a very modest scale. Our enterprising butcher,  Mr, Ceo. Cawston,
is doing the  grand ami  enlarging
his shop to permit of an exceptionally line exhibit for the festive season. Conspicuous among the dressed carcasta la om of ■ beef which

Old-Timer Narrowly Escapes
Crossing Great and Last Divide
ll'rini-i'lon Sl.ir.]
Robert Stevenson, pioneer, mountaineer, explorer and traveller, hail
another close call when he left here
about a month ago to cross the
Hope mountains on his way to
Chilliwack  ami  home.    Except he
had nine lives he verily must have
passed in his cheeks long ago, for
he has had many hair-breadth escapes. His biographer, whoever
he may be (probably Dave Higgins,
the noted raconteur and frontiersman) has enough material to date
to make a very portly   volume,   and
"Bobbie," as he is  affectionately
called among his tilliciims, is still
making material for this book. In
a letter to a friend here he states
that he has crossed Hope mountains 100 times but never had such
a horrible experience as this last
one. He met a poor fellow on the
trail and shared his grub vvith him
whieh left his rations short. Between cold and hunger Robert was
in bad plight. He says : " I was
almost Unconscious, but I just stuck
to the saddle, the. o1.1 black horse
dill the rest, and took ine straight
to lhe hotel door and pawed the
ground to try and tell thc people
inside that we were at the door. It
took two stout men to lift me out
of the saddle and I was given a
large drink of brandy before being
taken into the house to thaw out."
Mr. Stevenson is 70 years old. The
Star extends Xmas greetings to
School Concert To-Night.
We have had a glimpse of the
program for the entertainment to
be given in the town hall tonight
by the children ofthe public school
and vve would just say don't miss it
or you'll be sorry lor a year. Pro-
grains, hand painted by the pupils,
each a work of art and a souvenir
to keep, vvill be offered for sa'e by
thc children at 10 cents eaeh. As
the entertainment is lo be followed
Ivy a dance an effort vvill be made lo
start the program  at   7:3d sharp.
You can assist by being present on
time. As the proceeds are to be
used for purchasing prises lo be distributed among the pupils according to merit, it is hoped   there   will
be a crowded bouse.
Annual Meeting.
The annual meeting oi the Keremeos Fruit Growers' Association
will be held on Monday, January
4th, when a report for the last season will be submitted and reorganization effected,
$5,000 REWARD.
Train Hold-Ups Still at Large
Great Northern Increases the
Amount  of   Reward   Offered
for the Capture of Bandits.
So far the thu^s who made the
daring hold-up on the G.N. transcontinental at Hillvard last week
have escaped capture and the company has now increased the reward
to $5,000 for the arrest and con-
' viction of each and every One implicated in the affair.
Particulars of the hold-up indicate
lhat live men were engaged in the
work. Three boarded the train at
Hillvard, concealing themselves on
the tender until it hail proceeded a
mile or two, and then under cover
of their guns forced the train men
to stop the engine and  cut  off the
baggage, mail and express cars.
This done and with one of their
number at the throttle they ran a
safe distance down the line, rilled
the cars and then proceeded to the
next station where they made their
escape in a vehicle held in waiting
by an accomplice.
Only the ready  self-possession   of
fireman   Perrin  prevented  the rob*
bet s i, om making a big haul. While
appearing to follow instructions he
cut the train ahead of the express
car, which contained a big shipment
of gold, and the deception was not
noticed ill time by lhe bandits.
The mail anil baggage cars were
rilled but the loot which the robbers
were after was saved.
Successful Season.
O. H. Carle, who has been engaged during the past season in
supplying lhe upper valley with
fruit and vegetables, purchased
from the ranchers around Keremeos, reports a very successful season's business. Altogether he handled S-M47 worth of fruit and vegetables. Ofthe fruit the greater portion consisted of apples, peaches,
pears, plums and prunes from the
ranches of V. Richter and A. Robertson.
Mr. Carle hopes in succeeding
vears to develop a good  business iu
supplying  ihe   upper   and   mining
portions   of   lhe   valley    with   fruits
and vegetables from the lower v alley.

lhe Keremeos contingent to the
Spokane apple show returned home
On Tuesday all feeling that thev
had got their money's worth.
Ofthe British Columbia fruit districts Kelowna, Summerland, Spences Bridge and the Kootenay had
good exhibits. Kelowna is said to
have carried off between three and
four thousand dollars in prizes.
The Similkameen had one solitary
exhibit a box oi WinesapS contributed by Mrs. I.owe. It is worthy of note thai it was awarded a
first prize.
Wm. Ring says that of the many
varieties oi apples exhibited, four
reds Spitzenberg, Wineaap, De*
liciOUS and Jonathan, and two yellows the Winter Banana and Yellow Newton, were the leaders. lie
brought home with him samples oi
Grimes Golden, Delicious, Winesap,
Northern Spy and Winter Banana,
which may be seen al lhe Keremeos
Commercial Company's store.
A striking feature of the exhibit
was the marked difference in fruit
oi the same variety grown in different districts under different conditions.
It is now conceded that the historic apple which proved too strong
a temptation for Adam and Eve
was a "Delicious."
The app'e show was not confined
to the exhibition hall. Every store
window ia Spokane contained a
brilliant display ofthe king of fruits.
An attractive and instructive
feature was the culinary department,
where dishes "like mother used to
make'' together with many new and
dainty ones, were prepared from
rosy cheeked apples by artists no
less rosy checked.
Altogether the big show was far
ahead of anything of its kind ever
before attempted. It stands in a
class by itself, both from an educational point of view and the variety, abundance and magnificence of
the fruit exhibited.
They Loop The Loops.
A small army of canvassers representing    the    Western    Portrait
Co. of Calgary  were  maneuvering
in thi'- district on Saturday and
pulled out for Penticton on Sunday
by special. Thev had been working the Grand hoiks country but
apparently   lost   themselves   while
looping the loops on J ini Hills railway through the boundary country.
Prom their remarks they hud evidently over-estimated the population
of Keremeos by a few thousands
and Were disappointed in not finding
the street cars running. Call again
in a few \ears boys and you mav
not be disappointed.
Residents of Keremeos have received their assossiiie.it notices.
Those not satisfied are reminded
that they must register their kick
within 14 davs or forever after hold
their peace.

Selection of Apple Trees.
An important feature of the big
national ripple show at Spokane
I,isi ueek waa tlu- opportunity afforded fruil growers to judge of the
suitability ot certain varieties ol
apples for certain districts. It ia a
well recognised fact that in tli--i ri. t>
where some varieties attain a per*
fection of color, sum tnd flavor not
obtainable elsewhere other varieties
fail entirely to make good,
Those who are familiar with
apple culture in Ontario snd other
eastern provinces often liiul it dilli-
cult to recognise certain varieties
when grown here, lhe difference
is not restricted  to color and  size
hut is often very notieeable in flavor
and even in shape. Neither is the
difference always in favor of the
fruil grown here, some few varieties
seeming to favor the soil and climate of ihe east.
It thus follows that it is unsafe
for the fruit grower to make his
selection entirely from catalogues,
based on the results achieved else*
where, anil ihis is particularly true
in a COUnUy like our own where
conditions as to soil and climate
ue so constantly changing.    While
there are many other points to consider in the selection ol varieties
this is »>ue whieh must not he lost
sit^ht of or disappointment is likely
to follow.
Recently we were shown a sample
of the comparatively new variety
called "Delicious," and our feeling
was one of distinct disappointment.
In sise the apples left little lo be
desired and the flavor well justified
the Battering name whieh has been
given them, b it si/e anil flavor   are
not sufficient to secure lor any apple
the top market value. Color and
symmetry are almost, if not equally,
essential and in these respects the
Delicious, whieh we sampled, were
hopelessly lacking. We ean only
Conclude that they were grown in a
distriet or under conditions unfavorable io this variety for the Delicious is a leader of leaders on the
market to-day.
Mail Bag Keys.
An accident recently happened in
lhe loeal branch of lhe postal ser-
vice whieh, though trival in itself,
entailed so mueh extra labor and
annoyance thai even the usual imperturbable temper of  the   youthful
clerk was considerably  ruffled.    It
was only the breaking of a key tot
the mail bag, but as the postal department, for   reasons   ol   ils   own,
allows eaeh office only one key, Ihe
accident rendered it necessary to
rip eaeh sack open before access
could be gained lo the mail. The
sacks of course had to be sewn up
ajfiiin anil the proeess continued
daily until such time as another key
could be forwarded from Vancouver, Ihe ripping was easy enough
but sewing up a dozen tough,
grimy sacks was another matter
and just what our clerk thought of
Ihe postmaster general and his regulations would hardly do for pub-
lication. On inquiry we learn that
Nelson and Vancouver .ire the only
points in Hritish Columbia at whieh
extra mail bag keys are kept. Assistant Inspector Murray, while on
:i visit to the valley last week, promised to try and avoid the recurrence
of.i similar inconvenience by having one extra key kepi at some
point where it would be more readily accessible.
Reading Club.
A movement is on foot which, if
carried through, will be of greal
value to those of the community
who enjoy reading the latest books
as thev are issued. The idea is to
sl.ul a library, open to all who desire to become members, each mem*
her to give a sum of perhaps Rv<
dollars. This amount, figured on
B basis of twenty members, would
give an amount sufficient to buy
t(K) books. A member would in
this way have the opportunity of
reading the whole ofthe 100 books
for the original amount paid whieh
would be considerably cheaper reading than buying new books. An
additional amount of 10 ets. charged on each exchange of books would
suppl) i fund for buying new hooks
as the)   ne issued and  in   this   wav
keep up the stock and give advantage to members of all the new-
books for a small cost. A meeting
will be held in the customs office on
Monday nighl next, Dee. 21st, at
8 o'clock, and all those who are in*
terested .ire requested to attend so
that the movement may   be   carried
through and ii committee appointed
to attend to the necessary work.
