Keremeos Fruit Growers Decide
in Favor of Local Eair Anxious to Co-operate With the
Upper Valley in an Exhibit
for the A.-V.-P. E.
At a well attended meeting ofthe
fruit growers of this district held
on Saturday afternoon several matters of interest were up for consideration.
A. Robertson quoted prices from
various linns on land fertilizers and
pointed out that hy the association
working together and  importing in
car lots a considerable saving could
he effected. It was deemed advis-
ahle, however, to do a little experimenting with the various kinds he-
fore ordering in larj,re quantities,
several being of the opinion that
the soil here does not require fertilizers.
Win. Riiif,r introduced the question of a fair for Keremeos. He
anticipated no trouble in securing
sufficient prizes to insure a nice
little exhibit of fruit and vegetables
and suggested that the choice from
this fair might he forwarded to the
Seattle fair. There was no difference of opinion as to the wisdom of
holding such a fair or of the benefits which would ensue and a resolution was passed in  accordance.
It was the unanimous opinion,
however, that if the   valley   vvas   to
be represented at the Alaska-Yukoo*
Pacific Exposition at Seattle, that
it should he done on a scale worthy
of the occasion, and for this purpose the secretary was requested to
correspond with the proper officials
to ascertain what space could be
secured in the Canadian building
and with the secretaries of the
boards of trade at Hedley and
Princeton with a view to co-operating in the expense and work necessary to provide an exhibit that
would do justice alike to the vvon-
ilerful mineral wealth oi our valley
and its unlimited possibilities in the
horticultural and agricultural field.
The scheme contemplates keeping a
man in charge oi the exhibit to
dispense information regarding the
valley and renewing the fruits and
other perishable exhibits when  IMC*
The funeral of Mrs. Bessie Northey, wile of R. VV. Northey of
Olalla, who died at the Washington
Hospital, Spokane, on Sunday,
Jan. 31st, took place on Thursday
of last week from the parlors of the
New England Undertaking Co.,
Spokane. The funeral services
were held in the chapel at that institution, the Kev. Alfred Lock-
wood, dean of All Saints Kpispocal
church, Spokane, officiating. Many
friends had laid wreaths and crosses
of (lowers on the casket until the
prolusion of lilies, roses and carnations completely covered it. The

ti. R. Northey of Creston, H. C,
and Stanley Northey, Spokane,

George Loudon returned on Friday from a trip to Winnipeg, St.

in the middle west. He reports a
pleasant outing- as well as good
success in the business in which he
was eiifjajjed.
The first shipment of material for
the track west oi here arrived on
Tuesday and consisted of two car
loads of angle bars and spikes from
the Hamilton Steel P: Iron Co. Almost as weld me .is the arrival of
the material itself was the suj-ht of

it was brought. They are Ihe st

A decided improvement na been
made in the RDpc.irancC I our town

game and show the 0 neis of these
dumb creatures their duty, The Hedley Masquerade.
[By Special Reporter, ]
The winter of  llX)8-0()   vvill   bug
be remembered in Keremeos as one
of gaiety and standing out by itself,
to those who were fortunate enough
10 be of the number, will be the
Hedley masquerade ball. 'The day
was fine and the twenty miles in
pleasant company seemed like five.
As rij^ after rig drove up to the Similkameen hotel the excitement
grew apace and the Hedleyites
seemed to feel that if numbers had
anything' to do vvith it the success
of the ball was assured. After registering and seeing grips deposited
in the rooms the visitors explored
the "city" and after buying ;i few
needfuls returned to dine and dress.
Then the fun began. Dark passages aided the secrecy wilh which
costumes and characters had been
hidden from boon companions and
bosom friends. As the magic hour
approached weird figures might be
seen darting out of the rooms and
along dark passages to the fire escape not in panic though, but
merely to escape the fire of inquisitive eyes. As the masqueraders ascended the stairs leading to the ball
room they were accosted by a figure
who gave them a sign and alter the
counter sign was given they were
allowed to  proceed.
Quickly the large room began to
fill and dancing was soon in full
swing. 'The clowns were very
much in evidence with their nonsense and vied with each other in
an attempt to get into the good
graces of a mysterious female in
red skirts and hoops. Had they
been aware they were within reach
of the arm ol the law they might
have hesitated. Keremeos ladies
carried off the prizes for best costumes and desei v edly so, although
lhe decision of lhe judges vvas much
Commented upon, many being of
the opinion that Miss McLean as
"Topsy" should have had the prize
for the best sustained chain -let
amongst the ladies. Certainly her
"get-up" was gieat and her einrgv
nevet flagged from the time she
entered the room until she left it.
The prize winners from Keremeos
vveic Miss Phelps for best costume
and Miss Kirby tor best sustained
character. The former assumed
the , haracter of "The QtMOfl of the
Snow" and was (hooeod in a handsome COStume of white satin, trimmed with swan's down and silver
sequins; a fascinating cap of same
in. iict i. ils sat coqiettishlv upon a
fair wig. 'The latter vvas handsomely attired as Queen Elisabeth,
pink brocade trimmed vvith ermine,
high Elizabethan OOlat and crown.
Was it the responsibility of the
pageless train or the absence ot Sit
Walter Raleigh which gave thai
grave look to my lady's face }
Other noticable characters Were
a Japanese lady (Mrs. James Kim-
hirst) which was perfect in detail
and veil  becoming   to   the   vv eater.
Evening Star (Mn   F.  Richter) a
handsome black dress with large
silver stars cleverly contrived out of
tinsel. The hair vvas worn flowing
with a star over the forehead. A
charming     representation. Miss
Lowe's character escaped me but
she looked her neat and charming
self dressed in old rose with a conical shaped hat. Miss Lily Smith*
erani looked well as the Queen of
Red Riding Hood (Miss Rita
Kirby) looked sweet enough to be
eaten alive anh it was a good thing
no wolves were prowling around.
Miss ForgUSSOn as "The Goddess
of Wine" in wine colored satin,
with fur robe and carrying a golden
wand with a silver goblet at the top
was a great success. She also
wore a fair wig with flowers and
puzzled the "knowing ones" even
alter     unmasking. Miss    Annie
Innis looked charming in Highland
costume and was mistaken over and
over again for a younger sister.
Miss Lowndes (Hedley) vvas a very-
dainty Miss Mullet, and skipped
about as if she had not a care in the
world. Miss Myrtle McLean (Hedley) made a fascinating Scotch lassie, such as would have delighted
the heart of Bobbie Burns. Mrs.
Whillans (Hedley) looked exceedingly well as a trained nurse.
As to the men Mr. Han. Rogers
and Mr. Bob. McCurdy wore rich
and becoming costumes, lhe former
as a Mexican and the lattet as
Knave of Hearts. When dancing
in the Spanish Waltz with the
"Queen of SnOUf" and "The Goddess of Wine" the effect of the four
dresses was remarkable good. Mr.
C. V. Prosser, in the dress of a cowboy, appealed   to   good   advantage.
Mr. Hi neks (Hedley) wore a handsome dress as a Chinese potentate
anil looked very well indeed. Mr.
MacHallic as Mr. Pooley must have
given considerable thought to his
costume weich was a splendid disguise. Max Kwart, after getting
rid oi his hoops, donned the garb
of a Jack Tar, which became him
well. H. Richter as a clown and
C. Loudon as a bugler were both
good. There were many other
costumes too numerous to mention.
Miss Armstrong from Keremeos
assisted in the judging. Altogether there were about forty in attendance from Keremeos.
'The supper vvas laid in Fraternity
Hall and vvas an elegant spread and
UlUCh appreciated. The Hedley
people very generously extended
Ihe courtesy of sending the visitors
tii supper first and I can assure you
ample justice was done to the good
things provided.
Oood music, a good floor, good
partners and a good supper. What
more could the heart of man desiic?
or woman either? I only hope that
in the near future Keremeos will
waken up and show the Hedley
Iriends that they are not far benind
in the matter of entertaining. Why
should we not  have   a   masquerade
here? and soon?

Organization Needed.
A meeting, having for its object
the oriraniziiiij; of a board of trade
or some similar institution for the
purpose of advancing the interests
of our town and district, is to be
held in the Land Company's office
tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon at
three o'clock. The advantages
which may he gained from an organization of this kind have already-
been set forth in the columns of this
paper and need not be further enlarged upon; suffice to say that it is
hoped that every man who is in any
way interested in the progress and
prosperity of our lown and districl
(and that should mean everybody)
will lend enthusiasm to the occasion
by being present and assisting in
every way he can.
lhe fruit growers of Keremeos
have had an organisation for some
lime and this season intend to extend its field of operations and hope
to greatly increase its sphere of usefulness to the members. It is do*
ing excellent service but its work
must necessarily be restricted to i
matters either directly or indirectly
connected vvith the horticultural in-!
terests of the district. An organic*
ation less limited in its scope of
usefulness and unrestricted as to its
membership is needed. Municipal
Organisation has been broached but
it is extremely doubtful if the lime
is ripe for that yet. What is needed al the present time is organization to "boost" the town and district, secure such improvements as
are within reach and correct such
existing conditions as are not in the
best interests of the   town   and   are
amenable to improvement.
Be a "booster." Attend the
meeting tomorrow and do what you
can to assist Keremeos in taking
full advantage of the opportunities
which are looming ahead.
Express Charges.
This week a resident of Keremeos brought lo the attention of the
Trumpet an instance in which an
express parcel from the east addressed Keremeos, ll.C'., via Midway, had been sent around by Penticton vvith the result that the additional express charges of 35 cents
from Penticton here, via sta^e, had
to be paid. The directions would
have been quite sufficient to insure
the parcel coming in via the G. N.
if the Dominion Kxpress Co. were
at all disposed to consider the interests of the people here. Hut
they are not and as is their custom in
such cases they sent the parcel as
above stated in order to retain aa
additional few cents to themselves
and prevent it going to another
company. The additional expense
to the receipient of the parcel is of
absolutely no consideration to them.
The mistake in the above instance
was in having the parcel addressed
via Midway, which is not a transfer
point, instead of via (irand Forks.
We would emphasize this upon our
readers. Instruct shippers to be
careful and mark all shipments via
(irand Forks, then redress may be
had if the directions are not followed. In the case of small parcels
from the east, up to four or five
pounds iu weight, the mail will be
found cheaper and much more satisfactory than the express. As most
of our mail from the east is still
sent by Penticton there will also be
the grim satisfaction of knowing
that when parcels are so sent the
stage will still have the pleasure of
carrying them but will not have the
privilege of exacting its exorbitant
The trouble appears to be that
the contract for carrying the mails
between Penticton and here is taken
at a figure that is altogether too
low and the proprietor of the sta^re
is apt lo find it unreniimerative unless he can make good out of the
passenger and express business.
Chas. Were has been appointed
secretary-treasurer and collector for
the new municipality of Penticton
at a salary of §25 a month.

Christian Endeavor.
Last Sunday, Feb. 7th, was the
anniversary of the organization of
the first society of Christian Endeavor by the Rev. F. K. Clark.
In the morning the Rev. Mr. Cameron called the attention of the Sunday school to the work of C. E.
societies, and the teachers and officers of the Sunday school were appointed tO consider the advisability
of orjjani/ing a C. B. Society  here.
The committee later asked Mr.
Cameron to call a  meeting of par*
j ties interested to be held at the
close of his availing service. Mr.
Cameron gave a concise history of
the C. B. movement. At least
twenty-five attended the meeting
and by an unanimous vote resolved
to organize   a   Christian   Endeavor
, society. Messrs Crooker, Prosser,
Albert Mattiee, Miss Innis, Mrs.
R, Klmhirst and Mrs. D. J. Innis
were elected a committee to prepare
a constitution and report to a meeting to be called by Mr. Crooker.
Later-Since the above was handed in and placed in type the committee met and decided to abandon
for the present the idea of organizing.
A much needed revision of the B,
C. statutes is to be made this year
and Parker Williams, Socialist member for Ladysmith, on Friday last
asked the legislature that in the revision all latin and foreign words
and expressions be translated into
plain English so that the ordinary
man could interpret the act without
the aid of lawyers whom he described as parasites on society.
