Will be Held at  Keremeoa on
Thursday July 16.
D. P. Jelly, secretary of the
Fruit Growers' Association, has received a letter from J. R. Anderson, Deputy Minister eif Agriculture, stating that a series of meetings under the auspices of the Department will be held in the Osoyoos District, in which Keremeos is
situated, during July. The dates
are : I'eachland the 11th, Summer-
land the 13th, Penticton the t4th,
and Keremeos Thursday the 16th.
The speakers will arrive in Keremeos on Wednesday and leave on
Thursday in time to reach Penticton that day, so that the evening
meeting will he held on Wednesday
and the daylight demonstration on
Thursday morning.
For these meetings the Department has secured the services of
Prof. W. S. Thornber, Horticulturist of the Washington Agricultural
College, Pullman, and one of the
highest authorities in America on
the cultivation of fruits; also of M.
11. Dobie of Victoria, who is well
known as an able exponent of fertilizers and soil conditions. It is
expected that the magic lantern
will be sent along to illustrate the
subjects to be brought up at the
evening meeting.
The daylight demonstration, however, from its direct and practical j
character, will be the most valuable!
feature of the day's proceedings.
"Daylight demonstrations in the
field," says the Deputy Minister, "I
consider absolutely necessary in the
present state of horticulture in the
province," meaning that such a
large proportion of our fruit-growers are beginners in the business,
that the greatest need of the day,
from an educational standpoint, is
practical rather than theoretical
teaching. The theory and philosophy of horticulture can be learned
outside of the orchard, but it is
only by experience in actual work
that they can he properly applied.
About   two   years   ago a demonstration   such  as   is here   proposed
was held at Frank   Ixichter's place,
and was a decided success, combin-!
ing a most useful lesson   with what
was also a picnic party   for the par-'
tieipants.       It   is   not   yet    decided I
where this summer's out-door meeting is to be held, but the   place will
be announced In due   time, and   we
have IM doubt that every one of our j
fruit-growers who can   possibly   ar- j
range it will make it a   point to  at- |
tend, (with   his  family   if  he is the
proud   proprietor   of  one)  both the
evening and morning meetings.
It is said that Japanese merchants
have offered the Chinese Ai Jai (lit
Fa, or Boycott Society, $400,000 if
they will lift the boycott on Japanese
goods, from which the traders of
the Sunrise Kingdom are suffering
severely. It is the opinion of Chinese in this country that the offer
will be refused.
Sudden Death.
The summons of death came with
startling suddenness to Louis Kleep,
a member of the irrigation ditch
gang, on Monday. He started to
work in the morning as usual, and
at about 11 o'clock laid aside his
tools and went down the river bank.
It was noticed that he did not return, but nothing was thought of
his absence, as it is not unusual fora
man to drop off and go to the camp
to rest when he is not feeling well—
and Kleep was not in robust health,
When he did not make his appearance at 1 o'clock, however, a search
was made for him, and he was
found lying dead on the bank, where
he had pitched forward on his face.
Dr. McEwen was summoned at
once, and found that death was due
to an apoplectic fit, aggravated by
the fall. He decided that an inquest
was unnecessary Deceased had
long been subject to such fits. He
was about 45 years of age, and was
of Dutch or German origin.    Of a
very quiet and agreeable disposition, he was well liked among his
associates. So far as is known he
had no relatives in Canada, but has
been heard to mention that he has
a brother somewhere in   the United
States.     He   had   been    in    British
Columbia  for  eight  or  ten years,
known   of   his   antecedents.       The
funeral was held on 'Tuesday at the
Carriage Building, Repairing and Painting
Opposite the Central Hotel.

Notes and Comments.
After long- delay and much negotiation, the Keremeos Land Co. hits
secured the right of way for its
irrigation canal across the Ashnola
Indian Reserve, in spite of the determined opposition of Chief Ashnola John. John's attitude has been
hostile from the first, but the authorities at Ottawa, in accordance
with their wise policy of Consulting
the wishes of their aboriginal wards
rather than apply coercion, have
attempted repeatedly, through Indian Agent Irwin, to convince them
of the propriety of allowing the
work to go through. Most of them
are amenable to reason. They
realise that the white man's march
of progress is irresistible, and that
the proposed work will do them no
harm. John, however, is irreconcilable. He has no use for the
paleface or his works. Dl Milling

market for fruit has been held up
by unduly high prices, and also,
in the case of small fruits, by the
unjustifiable practise of using false-
bottom short-weight boxes of U. S.
make, such as have long since been
discarded in up-to-date communities. Growers in Eastern Canada,
and to a still greater extent in the
United States, have lost enormously by spoiling their markets through
improper sorting and packing, and
it is to be hoped that in the Similkameen the lesson will be taken to
heart and every care exercised to
make and maintain that most valuable asset—a good name. Also it
would be no more than fair for our
local growers who are so fortunate
as to be first in the field to supply
the home market at the same rate,
at most, as they get for shipments
to the outside. It would pay them
in the long run to do so rather than
to attempt to make gain from their
temporary advantage of being first
in the field.

The New Cemetery.
Some misunderstanding having
arisen owing tothe change of tlu
hour of meet in;,'from that original.
ly announced, the meeting called for
Saturday evening to discuss th;
question of acquiring a new site for
a cemetery was adjourned to Monday, June 2')th, at 7 o'clock p. tn.,
when it is hoped there will be a full
attendance of citizens ol Keremeos
and the surrounding country.
The site of the prese.it cemetery,
which is located   on   Government
land and was presented to the
town free of cost, is admirable in
every way except that the ground is
unsuitable for di^iii},'. On the occasions when graves have been dug
there it has been found that the
ground is simply a mass of boulders and loose earth, necessitating
several times as much labor as it it
wa--clear soil. This being the case,
it is thought best to use it no longer, but to secure a plot elsewhere.
The Kereme3d Land Co. has offered

come, anil every citi/en should take
an interest in it, give it his best
consideration, aiul attend the mect-
