Residents of the Similkameen,
who during the past week were
Complaining of the unusual and
persistent activity on the part of
zephyrs that sweep the valley, have
reasons to be thankful when thev
consider what was doing 00 the outside.
In Alberta the heavy rainfall during May turned the streams into
raging torrents. The How River,
On which Calgary is situated, overflowed its banks on June 5. On
Ilitrh River and at Mcl.eod the hifjh
water did considerable damage.
East and west of High River there
are washouts on the railroad of
several miles.
In Montana nearly every citv was
isolated. Helena was cut oil' from
the outside world and the Streams
on June 5th were still rising.
In Idaho there was heavy loss.
Orchards being swept away in
some instances and who'e sections
of bottom land covered under a deposit of sand and gravel.
The CP.R. track at West Mcl.eod, Alta., was swept away, and
St. Mary's bridge between Mcl.eod
and Lethbridge, was made a wreck
on the night of June 5th.

for a house of 1(X>, only 17 Liberals
were returned, while in the last

among other questions that  will be """^"f mm defeated in  Montreal
brought up for discussion, is that
of sending a fruit exhibit to  the birr
nonunion Fair at Calgary, It is
argued by some that the fair is too
early to permit of a creditable exhibit being made. True, only a
very limited number of the manv

but what is early for the Similkameen will be as early or earlier for
the other fruit valleys, and we may
profit thereby. Even a small exhibit   of such   fruits   as   are   ready-
by   Henri   Bourassa.     Altogether

A question that is of considerable
