Shoe Comfort
When your feet hurt, you can't work earnestly or
intelligently. Foot-pain makes your body tired and
tires your brain. There is a shoe for men that docs not
hurt. It is the "PATRIOT." It is made over stylish
foot-conforming lasts and fits and feels good from the
start. There is no "breaking-in" necessary. PATRIOTS are Goodyear Welts, meaning no tacks, wax
or threads inside to hurt, burn and blister the feet.
SALE PRICE, &5.00
The Oxfords fit snug and close around the ankle
and there is no gaping at the sides. An innersole of
ground cork keeps out the dampness. To fully appreciate them you have to wear them. Many styles—all
good ones. The " PATRIOT " is a member of the
" Star Brand Family." "Walk on Stars, Same as
We Do."

MAMMOTH STEAMSHIP
White Star Line Enters Canadian Carrying Trade
A dispatch from London confirms!
the report that the White Star line
will detach the liner Baltic, 24,000
tons gross, 15,500 tons net, from the
New York route and place it upon
the Canadian service this year.
The action on the pirt of the White
Star Company, which is part ol lhe
big steamship trust, constitutes what
is practically the first move on the
part ol the combine to partake ol the
passenger tratlic on the 1 iverpool and
St. Lawrence route The Baltic,
which is only eclipsed in size by the
Lusitsnia and Mauretania was the
largest steamship in the world lor
some years, the other White Star
leviathans Celtic, Cedric and Adriatic,
all falling below her actual tonnage.
She is a comparatively slow boat,
being built for carrying and comfort in
preference to speed.
The placing ol the monstrous passenger vessel on the Canadian service
is a striking illustration ol the importance of tbe trade to the Dominion
in tbe eyes of the great steamship
lines.

DEATH OF J. A. MILLER
Well Known Young Man Passes
Away After Lingering Illness.
Mr. J. A. Miller of Revelstoke, B C ,
died at Ihe home ol bis sister, Mrs. II.
J. Bourne, at Sierra Madre, California,
on Tuesday, April 14th. The deceased
came to this city last October in hope
ol regaining his lost health, but gradually declined ever since. Besides the
alone named sister, he leaves a mother
presently in the city, and a brother,
William Miller, of  British Columbia.
Tlie funeral service took place in the
Episcopal ohurch, Rev. C. E. Bentham
officiating. The lector spoke very

Show You a Mystery."
The choir was under the direction
ol Mrs. Stevenson, and besides several
hymns, the Mendelssohn funeral
march was rendered  very beautifully.
After the service the Rev. Mr,
Bentham accompanied the remains to
San Qabriel, where they were intorred
The death of Mr. Miller was one of
peculiar sadness. He was io tbe prime
ol bis years aud was blessed with a
most everything except health which
goes to make life worth living. He
was a druggist by profession. His
was an especially lovable character,
attracting all with whom be came in
contact. His devotion to sister and
mother was particularly beautiful. An
additional touch ol pathos was added
by the fact that death called Mr
Miller within a few hours after tbe
family had moved into tbe new home,
the„building of which had been of
such interest to bim.—Sierra Madre

Okanagan Navigation
Okanagan Centre, May 1.—The
cutting uniting Long Lake to Wood's
Lake is sufficiently completed to be
navigable and those whoso properly
is upon the main road are eagerly anticipating the advent ol the boat connecting up this important part of
Messrs. Maddock's property with the
city ol Vernon and as a large number of prosperous farmsteads and
ranches are situated immediately at
the terminal point, this method of
communication will be welcomed by
all as s cheaper, more rapid, more
efficient and more direct service than
hitherto existed.
Kipling on B. C.
In the current issue ol Collier's
Weekly, Rudyard Kipling, continuing
his " Letters to the Family," hss this
to say of the situation in British
Columbia :
" Externally, British Columbia appears to be the richest and loveliest
section of the continent. Over and
above her own resources she has a lair
ohance to secure an immense Asiatic
trade, which she urgently desires. Hei
land in many places over large areas,
is peculiarly fitted for tbe small farmer
and Iruit grower, who can send bis
truck to the cities. On every hand 1
heard a demand for labor of all kinds.
At tbe same time in no other part ol
the oontinent did I meet so many
men who insistently decried the value
and possibilities of their oountry, or
who dwelt more fluently on tbe hardships and privations to be endured hy
the white immigrant. I believe that
one or two gentlemen bave gone to
England to explain the drawbacks
viva voce. It is possible tbat they
incur a great responsibility in the
present and even a terrible one lor the
future."

SCIENTIFIC JOURNALISM
Special Training for Newspaper
Editors.
Berlin, May 1.—"Chairs ol journal*
ism should Imi founded in the I'rtisian
universities," declared Deputy Ruse-
now, in the House ol Representatives
in the Prussian Diet. "These chairs
should bo filled by eminent members
ol the journalistic profession who have
leceived a university education, The
time hss arrived when journalism
should lie taught methodically. For
the press ol today is ol the very highest
importance; possibly the greatest in
lluence in public and political life."
In his speech, Hcrr Roionow quote I
Emperor William, who said very lately
tbat tbe editors ol great newspapers
must be regarded as commanding generals, for they direct public opinion
and make nations friends or provoke
war between them.
In view ol their tremendous power
Herr Rosenow said, tho editors and
journalists of today should secure a
wider training than has beoti given
them.
''It is uot enough that the journalist
of todsy has the talent his profession
demands, and cultivates this talent by
practice," said the earnest deputy.
"He should be scientifically educated; he should enlarge his faculties
and develop his talent under the
guidance of capable teachers."

.SCENE NEAH THE DEUTSCHMAN CAVES
CANADA IS STRONGEST.
The number of large United
States corporations that either
passed or reduced dividends since
the first of the year is ten, and curiously enough, in Canada the number of corporations that have increased dividends is also ten, s.iys
the Canada industrial. There have
been a couple of reductions here
also, but they are either offsprings
of United States concerns or close
affiliations of them. The purely
Canadian institutions have held up
under the stress of the money
stringency in a manner that is, to
say the least, remarkable. There
has been, and there still is, a certain amount of dullness in certain
lines of trade in thia country, but
these are exceptional and the position of the country generally
speaking is so strong that there
cannot fail to be an early revival
that will surpass all past lecords.
Canada is the s'ifest country in the
world to-day for the employment
of capital, and the one in which
the greatest returns are sure to be
made in the future. The conservatism of the Canadian, ns compared with the gambling spirit of
the average business man of the
United States, is the thing that
tells when the crisis comes.

ami pathetic over the punishments.
that would  be  inflicted   upon   the
cow     keepers    should   the   milky
mother?  lie  allowed   to  pick up a
subsistence among the   boulevards,
lawns and gt'.raens of our  citizen?
The pound k-.-j er  is   now  on   the
alert for ali wayward animals, and
will at once assume charge  in the
name of the   citv   of   such   stray
stock that is making itself   a nuisance and an inconvenience  to  the
public,   and   the owners can have
their properly again only  on  payment of the prescribed fine,   which
is little   enough.      Now    that   the
board ol  public   works   has   com
menced clearing up  the  streets,  it
behoves the public to follow their
excellent   example   and   do  their
part, and moreover   to keep  tbeir
stock in their' own   pastures   and
not impose lhe work of clearing up
after them, upon the city   finances,
The council are doing all   they can
to make the city clean and the general public should   do   everything
possible to  assist.     A  visit Irom n
stray cow or  horse  for a few minutes on a boulevard or garden, will
do considerable barm and the public will not go to   the   expense   of
Iseautifying their premises only to
be ruined the next minute.   Even-
citizen  should   assist   the   pound
keeper fof tbe common  good,   and
stock  owners   should   take   every
means to keep it in bounds, and we
must be permitted to say that cows
are a decided nuisance and ought
to be abolished—not the cows, but
the nuisance.
CAPITAL V. LABOR
Tbe friction between capital and
ibor still  continues   and   without
;v   -igns   of  abatement.    Capital
ii always  been  to   the  working
i.jan what a red rag  is   to  a  bull,
•  I   this   very   fact   of   habitual
1 trouble between the  two  that   has
i in a   measure   retarded   commerce
jand put a iar  wider   gulf   between
the   master   nnd   the     employee.
Capital   is     not   causing   all   tlie
trouble to the  laboring man.     The;
price of  labor,  the   length  of  the j
da; V work and closed  Bhop  questions are  not   all   the difficulties
witli which unions have to contend !
in carrying on a strike.     A strike
is a serious mattt i;   it is expensive
both to tbe laboring man and   the:
capitalist.   It means a loss to the
unions and   to   'lie   employer   of
lali.ir ami a strike Bhould   never be
declared   unless   there    are grave
causer for. ailing off the men  * -1. i -
ployed. It would be better to  haw.
made a mistake in not ordering   i
light between  employer   and  employed than to have been mistaken
on  the otln-r side.   Sometimes  a
strike and it? successful  termination may make the life of a union;
and again its failure or   long  continuation   means   the   death   of a
union,    It takes  united   action   to
make a  strike   of   any   magnitude
Successful, and united   action   may
call for sacrifice from   many  men.
This is where unions must exercise
great   caution,    for     unless   such
strikes are ordered witb the best of
reasons,   dissertion     is     likely   lo
follow.      The payment of a certain
per cent, of one working man's wage
lor the help oi his Htriking   brother
■nay entail a certain   hardship on
the donor.    To walk   out  in  sympathy   with  another   union   mny
mean   rent   overdue   and  grocery
bills   unpaid.     When   a     laborer
gives up  his  money  he  wants  to
leel that it is going to be  used fur a
good cause and he has   tbe right to
insist that he shall donate it for a
just strike, that the trouble shall
be one easily and honorably avoided.
The working man in many cases
brings trouble on his own head by
unnecessary complaints which exasperate his employers und in the
end can probably be found unfit to
work alongside of another man
who is proficient and steady. Tbis
may lead to dissention which
spreads throughout the union and
results in the striking of the whole
body, which may or may not be a
failure.      If   there   is   again  any

Winmi'KO, May I —t'lnp reports
received by tie "Free Press" from
fi Ity-six loints in Mai i ih .Saskatchewan and Alberta, are most optimistic
in tono. Tbe seedbeds are iu excellent couUition, the rainfall having
been beneficial, seventy-five per cent,
of the wheat in Manitoba is seeded.
There iB an increase of thirty-five to
forty per cent, in the acreage in Saskatchewan; fifteen per cent, of tbe
wheat is already up. The season ib a
month earlier than P.I07. Reports say
that there will l.e an extensive acreage
in coarse grains sown. Conditions are
the most favorable for years.

HOW LONG SEEDS LIVE
Items of Interest to Revelstoke
Gardeners
Now that our people are busy with
their gardens and seed planting lhe
followiug tuny be read with advantage!
One of the most interesting things
which conies within the observation
of the gardner, whether amateur or
profens-iiuial, is the length of time that
seeds retain their vitality,      We oflen
when the seeds are not mce than 10
or 12 months old,
It is often remarked that small
•eeds have far more vittitty than
large ones. In this way celery seeds
often germinate when ll) or 12 years
old, whereas com very seldom retains
Its germinating power after two or
three years.
There is also the question ol latitude,
to bo taken into consideration, Seeds
whioh naturally germinate in a few
weeks   in   one   locality   will take far
l.ONU LAKE, OKANAGAN, B, C.
see ths statement made that seeds
retain their vitality. We often seo
the statement made that seeds which
are more that, one or two years old are
ol no further use; and, in goit g over
tho seed-box at planting time, seeds
are often thrown away simply because
they bear a dale which indicates thut
they are perhaps too old for germination. This matter, however, is w rtli
going into, and upon investigation it
will otten be found that these very
ee.ds which have been tlnown away
are really of far more value than Bonie
which have just been sent home from
the seedsman.
The amateur gardener who demands
new seeds each year might well take a
lesson Irom some expert who has devoted long study to this subject. This
expert would be able to tell him many
interesting things; for instance, that
ho will get better results from cucumber seeds that are several yea-a old
than if he plants some which are only
a year old. The year-old seeds will
give luxuriant vines but a small
amount   ol   Iruit, whereas   tbe  older
longer in some other part of the conn
try, Every gardener has pr iliably experienced this when cm. p ring the
cultural directions on bis-leils with
actual results. Of course, the condition of the soil has something to do
with this, and it is very seldom that
one finds that ordinary seed will germinate as quiukly us promised,
It is not only among vrgotable seeds
but also among llower sen!-, that this
exists. Some llower seed- will germinate after a very long p i io I, as for
instance, the balsam, which his been
known to sprout after a period of 10
years. Many other flower seeds, however, must be planted within a year,
or they will be found to have very
little vitality left.
It sometimes happens thit an ex
pert Bower grower will be able to produce unusually Hue blossoms simply
by planting seed at an age which he
has determined to be tbe right one to
produce the best results. This is a
matter largely dependent upon long
study and observation, and it is to be
sincerely   hoped   that   the time will
SHEEP FARMING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA.
seeds will give a less luxuriant vine
but will begin to fruit early and will
bear a large crop.
This early crop is a matter of considerable importance, especially to the
niarket-giiiduer, who must depend almost wholly for his succeBS on getting
his early vegetables upon the market
ahead of his rival,-. If a man can save
two or three weeks and secure just as
good a crop, it i< greatly lo bis advantage to do so, and, if he is able lo do
this without any trouble to himself
except purchasing slightly old seeds,
he will certainly be glad to have devoted some little time and study to
the subject.
It must be remembered, however,
that what holds good for one kind of
vegetable does not apply at all to some
other kind. Some of the root vegetables, like parsnips, must be planted
come when such observations cm be
tabulated and published for the benefit of amateur gardners.
Last summer, while knee-deop io
branches trimmed from several dozen
tomato vines, we made the vow that
another year should Bee less pruning
and more pinching. If those same
branches, measuring an arm's length,
had been nipped off when they were
of a lingers length, the work would
have occupied only a few minutes,
instead of the hours required to uut,
collect and clear away. A still better
reason iu favor of the pinching iB that
the growth and energy will go into
the remaining vine and the fruit, instead ol going into the useless portion.
One authority says: "All that growB
and iB cut oil' is just, so much impoverishment, ol tlie soil and uiijustiliiible
waste, if   it could  have been checked
A SCENE IN REVELSTOKE IN THE EARLY DAYS.
by summer pruning nr pinching."
We have found Biivernl vegetables
responsive to lhe pinching treatment;
polo bean-, cucunib r npia-h and
pjppers, us well us torn itoos. To keep
pole lieiins within reach, it is well to
raisu them on a six-lout trellis aid to
clip the vines just us they reach the
top. . This treatment gives strong,
productive vines mid a neat, even.
looking trelsis. If they are not trimmed till they aro a yard or moro too
long, there will be a waste of the
vines' vitnlitv, as in the case of the
tomatoes, and, boiides, the overhang
ing ends will shade and smother Ihe
lower   pinion,   of   the vines.      Finn
Bproinioiis ol peppers are procured by
liitii'lii guff lie lips of the branches
w ion the fruit b gins to ripen, Kur
in ordinary crop this is not necessary.
Fur goiieiiil u o there is not much
gained in pruning eggplants, but to
hasten btmring before frost, it ia null to
pinch off .ill blosiOIUS and new siioots
about t.h'1-c weeks ahead of the time
frost is due, This leaves the fuli
energy ul the plant lu perleot the Iruit
t nit. bus already readied a reasonable
-ix . Culling is holier limn bit-aking
as the slims are tough.
Toiiiiilnos me pinched tu re-triet the
growth to one or two slums when
"fancy" specimens are dosiied. To do
this all brunches below the lirst cluster
of blossoms are removed, also all that
start out from the two main branches,
leaving the lirst cluster ul blossoms on
each side branch to ripen fruit. If a
more abundant crop of lesa choice
specimetiB will satisfy, trimming may
be le s severe, Leaving toni ito plants
to lie on the ground is not so satisfactory a method as to train tbem to
sonic sort of a ruck or trellis, but if the
former is preferred the plants must be
severely trimmed, while they are
biuiiI', to discourage a tendency to too
much vine.
A most useful tool for "pinching" is
au old pair of scissors carried in the
pocket of the garden apron, or fastened about the waist. If this is always
handy, many superfluous branches
can be snipped off daily during the
tour of the garden, that would otherwise be left till it was convenient to go
to the tool-house for the clippers. The
scissors can perform another service;
the cutting off of all faded flowers
before they have a chance to ripen
seed, aud thus prolong the blooming
season.
Two hints on pruning, useful for tbe
amateur's note-book are, early ll.iwer
ing shrubs generally develop tbeir
flower-buds the previous year, so tbat
severe pruning during the dormant
stage is likely to damage the bloom.
It iB better to prune in the spring or
early summer, as soon ss the flowering
season bas passed. Late-blooming
shrub) form flower buds early in the
same season, so tbey can be thoroughly pruned while dormant to make
tbem send up a quantity of flower-
bearing shoots.

being arranged under such self-indexing titles as area, agriculture, banking
commerce, finances, mining, railways,
wheat fields, etc. The wealth of
material contained in small space is a
revelation to even a well informed
Canadian of the standing and resources of the country. The book is

Phones Foretold in Scripture
Some genius has found 53 passages
in the Bible, which he claims as prophecies of the telephone, because, forsooth, the language seems to lit into
telephone vernacular. Here are samples:
"The line has gone out into all the
earth."
"Tbe land shall be divided by linej."
"We have no right against this great
company."
"Charge the people."
"I understand the number."
"I said in my haste, 1 am cut off.''
Mining at Seymour Arm
Armstrong, May 1 —Messrs. Mc-
Connell A Hubs have just returned
Irom their winter's work on tho Cot-
tonbelt mines at Seymour Arm. The
tunnel is now in SI0 feat and exposes
■IJ feet of solid ore, which assays $60
to the ton. The syndicate owning the
group are greatly elated over tbe
claim as it improves every foot tbat is
driven; starting with a seam of a
little over six inches and enlarging to
its present dimensions in 90 feet
indicates an immense body of valuable
ore and tbe owners have reason to be
jubilant.
B. C. FRUIT
Canneries to be Established in
Okanagan Valley.
Tho erection of fruit canneries at
Vernon and Kelnwna is contemplated
by MoBsrs. McKillop A Co., of Van
cnuver, and arrangements sre now
under way for thu establishment of
this new enterprise wbioh will prevent
to a large extent the great waste of
fruit thai has been absolutely nccee
sary during the past years through the
luck of preserving methods.
A joint stock company is being
formed with simple capital nnd as soon
is  arrangements  with   the   Vernon
council can be satisfactorily arranged
tlio building of a cannery al that point
mid another nt Kclowua will proceed.
McKillop & Co., have been offer.d a
free siie, with free water Slid exemption froin taxation for ten years at
Kel 'una, and it is understood that
the ciiiiueil of Vermin are intending to
III iku a similar nffri. Already volute
ttiry promises of heavy pltrchasis ol
th i .took of the ooiupriuy have la en
giveit Isy residents in and around Vernon und Ki In\vnu, and all through the
Okanagan Valley, (or the new industry
is I oked Upllll, Hot only as a boon,
but uu absolute necessity, there being
at, the present time no fruit cannery
in British Columbia.
Kach fall tous of fruit are available
and the big production haa practically
placed the grower at the mercy of the
wholesaler. The operations of a couple
of canneries in the Okanagan will mitigate this waste aud will open up a
market for British Columbia Iruit at
all seasons ol the year. Tbe bulk of
the Iruit will be preserved in glass jars.
A factory will be built, and as much
of the material used in the operations
of canneries, such as box, s, etc., will
be made on the ground, The pay-roll
will he a big one, and the i nit farmers
of the Okanagan are looking forward
with much interest to the completion
ol the canneries.

CORRESPONDENCE.
School Attendance
Editor Mlll-llKHALD.
Sir : I would like to eall Ibe
attention ol parents of the city and
surrounding school district to the
necessity of more regular attendance
on the part of many of the pupils of
tbe Public Schools,
In spite ol the fact that the School
Act distinctly states tbat every child
from the age of seven to fourteen, inclusive, "shall attend school during
tlie regular school hours of every
selcsol day. there is a tendency in
some homes to deta n children from
sell,ml frequently as a matter of con-
venieupe to the parents, and in a few
cases children are irregular simply of
patetifa! indiflVrence. There ia
impression, ton, in some quarters that
if a year is lost, by irregular attendance
in the lower divisions of the school, it
does not make very much difference
as the child is young and can easily
make up the time later ll has Iseen
forgotten in Biich cases that it is ail
tlie pupil of average ability can do to
cover our present Public School
course in the seven years prescribed,
■nd that it requires an exceptionally
hrilliint pupil to make a gain of even
one term in the whole course. Thus :t
will le seen .hat a year Imi when tbe
pupil is eight or nine yesrs of age,
when time does not seem of much
importance, means a year bait when
the pupil is fourteen or fifteen, when
time if beginning to lie considered of
much greater value. Then, loo, the
absence of even one pupil in a class
for a short time retards the other
pupils in the class to a certain extent,
as when tha absent one returns the
whole ehss has to g- mom slowly
until the lost work ban   been  covered.
There sre so many enforced setsbank
caused by sickness, epidemics, etc.,
that, to say the least, it seems unwise to allow the ohildren to remain
away from school when such absence
is not an absolute necessity.
Thanking you lor tbo space.
Yours sincerely,
A. K  Miller.
