Lardeau Valley Rich
in Mineral Resources
In the general mining revival that
is becoming more manifest each day
the Lardeau valley, one Ol the richest part nf this district, will largely
share. Already signs of Increasing
interest, .ire noted in that, rich bit
of mineral territory, stretching frqm
Lurdo on the south to Kerguson on
the north, and lying on both skies of
the Lardo river and the bnsin ol
beautiful Trout lake.
In the valley of the Lardo arc indications o( approaching placer mining activity, for It is known thnt the
yellow metal Is there in large quantities .md the proper   methods     of
i.andltng the material along the lied
of the river must yet be devised. This
will probably soon be accomplished
however, and the country in the vicinity of Gold hill will in u very few
years   pel Imps   become     one     of     tlie
largest cold producing sections ol

The finding ol nuggets nnd line gold
by dredging or otherwise on the river
bottom naturally gives rise to thc inquiry, "Prom whence has it. conic'.'"
It did Dot Come down from the skies,
ergo, it must have rolled from some
where oil the adjoining hills, therefore there is gold somewhere in those
peaks as well, and heaps of it.
There nre few sections so strongly
mineralized as the ground along both
sides of the Lardo river and capital
will be all that is require, to bring
the attention of the world to those
deposits and turn the country into
n big mineral producer. Gold, copper, silver, lead, zinc, marble nil of
these there is in abundance and no
doubt many other kinds of mineral
as  well.
Around Trout lake and Ferguson
are to be found some of the most
promising propositions in the district

A, B, Collett has staked 12 miles
of "il land near Merritt in the Vicinity   of   Key   lake.
After staking the deposit Mr. Collett in company With R. Gillespie of
Vernon, brought In with them samples which after analysis have proved  to he good oil.
Y.r. Gilllespie after examining the
discovery said: "It is dilbcult to believe that such a good thing could
have been lying so close to our door
without having been discovered before, but seeing is believing and on I
visiting the discovery one cannot but j
acknowledge that the material is
there in  great quantities."
It is known among old timers in
the valley that the Indiana have
known ol the existence of crude oil
in the valley for years, hut its source
has so far never been traced.
As soon as sufficient cupitui has
been secured, arrangements will be
made to install testing and drilling
machinery when it will then be ascertained as far as, possible, what the
quantity is.
Dr. Dawson in his recent geological
teports states that here arc sure indications of big bodies of petroleum,
etc., in the region round Merritt; old
timers too have told of using oil and

A good deal of attention is being
given to the Investigation of the oil
prospects of the Flathead valley, ia
South Kootenay. Two new syndicates
have entered the field and propose
drilling for oil. The Royal Canadian
Oil company expects to assume work
. n Akamlna brook next month, its
i rilling rig being In ph.ee and ready
for a start. The Peerless Oil company of Vancouver proposes to begin
work next month. Another company
will operate on the Kishenehna. The
Sage Creek Oil company of Kumloops
will also start. Oil hus been found
north, south and east of the Flathead
though not yet proved in paying
Ralph Arnold, who is considered
one of the highest authorities on oil
on the continent, will arrive next
month to begin his investigation of
I the section, and future development
will largely depend on his report. The.
discovery of oil at Black Diamond,
Alta., is stimulating a desire to
prospect the British Columbia side of
the divide, where admittedly favor-
sble prospects are obtainable.
Arrangements  are  being   made    by
British capitnl  to put down    several

Reports from all parts ol the
Kootenay and Boundary district indicate that the fruit crop this year
will be the largest in history. A
comparatively light crop last year, a
favorable winter, an early spring and
the absence of frost and other favor- j
able conditions have all contributed
to prolific bloom and reports indicate
that so much of the bloom has set
that much thinning out will have to j
be carried  out during the summer.
Extensive preparations are being
made for thf Western Canada Irrigation convention,     which will be held

of forming a water district for irrigation purposes under the provisions

that the department would have    a
survey made and secure an estimate
of cost, both of a connection across
the valley witb the Grey canal and a

"All the pie he could eat" was the
title of a moving picture reel run oil
with huge success last. Wednesday evening at the home ol" Mrs. Ralph
Lawrence. It. appears that Mrs.
Lawrence hud oflered a pie apiece to
the local baseball team as an Irresistible inducement. to do or die last
Monday In the buttle with Vernon.
(if course a popular impression does
exist to the elfect that women kind
never, never pily up u wager, but
IS reputably pious individuals of our
city can testify that Mrs. Lawrence
is a splendid exception' to any such
lii'l'Usat.ion.    An   immense   amount,    of
originality was displayed in the arrangements for the pie festival.
Crimson satin ribbons outlined a
miniature diamond on the snowy damask. Crimson the club colors was
displayed aa well as a lovely centre
bowl of carnations. Life like.
though not life size replicas of the
players stood, each man in his place
cleverly fashioned out of peanuts
and tooth picks. Hut of course the
main attraction was not the men but
the menu, the most unique menu of
13 pus. "A ".stood for apple pie and
some more of the alphabet, stood for
,, dozen other kinds, but the bneball
boys stood for the bunch, nnd luft
ii.et so much as a crust. The basemen especially distinguished themselves, winning lirst honors in the ca-
I aclty test. Delicious colTee accompanied the feast. Afterwards, those
who were able, put on an impromptu
pie.gram of music interspeised with
. nsiderable lively humor befitting
the occasion, It la a safe bet thnt
Revelstoke can lay her money on tbe
home team whenerver the Inducement
is sufficiently appealing.
The scholarly address delivered by
Lev. Father MacKenzie on Thursday
evening, before the members and
Liicsts of the Women's Canadian club
was listened to with the deepest interest. The subject chosen "Notable
Women ol the Thirteenth Century"
gave small inkling of how absorb -
ingly entertaining the lecture would
prove.    The  chair   was   taken  by    the
new president, Mrs.  E.H.S.  McLean,
and with heron the platform' were
Mrs. Kennedy, corresponding sccie -
tary,   and      Rev.   Father     MacKenzie,
the speaker ol the evening. Mrs. McLean in a few Opening remarks drew
the attention of her audita ce to the
fact that tins occasion ielebrated the
completion ol the first yeai in tbe
history of   the    Women's   Canadian
Club   "f   Revelstoke.    She   referred     to
tue clever presidency of Mrs. Sibbald
whose skilful generalship had safelj
steered  the Boclety   through  its     in-
lant year. "Double OUI mi mberslnp"
she suggested as a slogan for the
coming   year'.    Father   MacKenzie first
congratulated the club on its efficient president and then for its splendid ideals. "But it is not, in my
opinion, sufficiently tar reaching that
you  study  only   the    aits,   literature,
I istory  and   Institutions   of    Canada,
l! ..en should extend this to Include those of all pen i.ls of history"
