lent, catered by Mr. Bohnrt oi the
Lelund botel. The toast lo the King
having been drunk, that of the Dominion ami provincial governments
was proposed Iiy L.J. Edwards, nml
responded to hy W.W. Foster, deputy
minister of public works, J.P, Forde,
Dominion engineer, ami li.   R, Atkin-,
customs collccloi- o' Hevelstoke. Mr.
Foster dwelt chiefly with the work of
the government in road making, which
wn-   such ., necessity to   the   farmer,
and   wilhoul   whieh   no   ram-her      coiilil
expect io succeed In bringing his products to   market cheaply   enough   to
1 ■ iiinpti.' with th. tsi.li- world,     He
gave figures' where it was shown that
with roads In certain conditions ll
cost from 27c to IOc per Ion per mile
to haul grain lo the station, whereas
it was hop.'.I with modern equipment,
antl up-to-date roads lhi- cost would
be reduced to Te- and 8c per ton. In
years gone by tho financial condition
of  Ili.e province of    Hriiish  Oolumbia
had lieen smh lhal. rouil work as Well
as other expenditures wen- of necessity limited In their scope, but with
the progress and Increased revenue
now enjoyed the government saw lit
to -pe.nti the money when, it would do
the greatest gootl to the settlors, and
that was in giving them facilities lo
reaching  the markets,     Bin   when it
was considered that this province covered the huge proportions of 400>0<HJ
square miles, goo I roads coul I not be
built everywhere' at once, but tlfy had
a set poliey. and as soon as money
l Was available (rom year to year, bo
were the roads throughout thn length
of the province oxtended and 'unproved. The old Dewdney trail ami tho
('arihoo road were instunced as the
besl ihe government could do in thoso
tlays in the way of road construction

under the conditions then prevailing,
Tbe country was small in population.
and without population there was no

Thc toast ..f the evening wa- proposed by Thoma- Abrlel, who in a, splendid sp ii gave figure   relating to tlio
district, t.i- i-tleui- in inducing the
minister lo attend thnt day, enlarging

tin   . ountry and it- future, bad failed
to fni'l lho money to pay for the land,
and had consequently allowed it to
lapse. Had he held it, the location
Woul.I have proved a remunerative Investment. He had the foresight, but
he lacked the capital. Ho, however,
little dreamt that tbe vnlley would
produce the luscious fruit he had thai
. tlay seen at the exhibition building,
apple-, pears, ami plums, the better of
which, ii was Impossible to Hnd. do
impressed was he with what lu> had
-ecu that as minister having oharge of
-u.-li matters he was gathering tho
best tlie province could produce to
-eml to tin- land show at Winnipeg
ui-1 now, und ho begged that boxes
seen that tlay might be sent lothat
show  with others  from  other  parts  of
British Columbia. It was late to send
with the original consignment, hut he
would he glad to purchase tho fruil
.-nnl to send tbem specially by express
so Impressed wa- he witb what. tin-
Arrow lakes eri'W. He advised 111"
tanners to try ami go in for mix-enl
farming, instead of growing fruil
wholly. He dwelt on the policy oi
good roads, which enhanced thei value
of lands. He advised the farmer to
go in Btrongly for poultry raising. Nothing paid better. One mail ou Van -
i ouver Island had bought 11,11011 head
of poultry, cheaply, fattened ihem and
-old them at a handsome profit, at 'hie
per pound. The farmer need not be
afrol ! of the so-called money depression so much heard of today. There
was iu-t as much money available
today as al any tittle, and it llie farmer .lid his part, he ha I no need to
fear the ery in ihi- country where tbe
opportunitieswere such that exist in
no other country.
NO  MILITANTS.
The toast lo the agricultural iut.'i-

The article appearing elsewhere in this issue, describing the
journey of Mr. Smith, who went down to New Westminster fair
in charge of the Revelstoke district exhibit, will be appreciated by
every one interested in the agricultural development of this section. It is evident from Mr. Smith's experience, that Revelstoke
can and does, in certain classes of products, "produce the goods."
It is also equally evident, that our arrangements for securing and
staging the displays entered on such occasions under the name of
Revelstoke, are far from being satisfactory.
lt is obvious, that if we intend to compete with success, in
these days of strenuous competition, at such annual meetings as
the Westminster fall fair, we cannot rely upon individuals or
scratch exhibits, but rather that either the Agricultural association
or some other qualified body, must take in hand the entire burden
of securing the exhibit, and must also be prepared to furnish a
certain amount of the funds needed to put same on show at least
on an equality as regards condition and display, with the exhibits
from other districts.
The columns of a newspaper, published first and foremost in
the interests of the district, are not the proper medium wherein to
commence a discussion as to whether our Agricultural association is succeeding in its primary duty of encouraging in every
possible manner the agricultural and horticultural development of
this territory such an organization exists only to serve.
We believe many well wishers of Revelstoke are profoundly
dissatisfied with the system now prevailing both as regards the
management of our own fall fair and exhibition, and in respect of
the organizing of district or individual exhibits intended to compete under the Revelstoke colors, at outside exhibitions.
It is up to every individual member of the Agricultural Association, and especially those who have joined same entirely from
the view-point of making progress in Agricultural matters, to attend the next general meeting of that body, and give expression
to their opinions as to whether the Association is really filling its
proper functions, or if it is not being year after year sidetracked

along lines which are not in sympathy with its ostensible aims and
objects.
One of the best proofs of proper management of any organization is to achieve a result where the entire monetary income, or aa
large a proportion of same as possible of any society organized for
definite purposes, is actually economically and efficiently expended
in a manner to directly bring about the objects in view. It is claimed by some that, out of the large annual income of the Revelstoke
Agricultural Association, only a small amount is actually disbursed
in ways which might be said to benefit Agricultural and Iloricultural
industries of this district, whilst by far the major sum is expended
along lines which have nothing whatever to do with agriculture or
its branches.
If we as a district, are going to embark in the business of encouraging agriculture, by holding annual exhibitions and sending
exhibits to outside cities, we certainly shall have to get down to
business on a very dillVrent basis from that upon which we are at
present working, and it is to be hoped that these matters will be
fully discussed at the next meeting of tin1 Association.
It would certainly seem that the preparation and staging of
outside exhibits should be handled by the Association, and if the
amounts being expended yearly on such subjects cannot be increas.
ed without cuttint.** out some other .-ides of thi' Association's activ.
ities. then it is a question for the membership to decide, whether
they are content tu continue along the present unsatisfactory basis
or otherwise take the proper steps to furnish sufficient funds for
prizes and preparation of exhibits, to ensure first a very high-class
competition at the local fair, snd subsequently the picking from
that display, of exhibits of thatqu lity which will uphold lhe prestige of this district when properly displayed alongside the produce
of their competitors at the big Provincial Exhibitions.

Falcon and Hope Islands <>f the
Prleudly pr Tonga group in the South
Pacific hav.- disappeared bom view
with several hundred natives and
white men. News to this ellect was
brought lo San Francisco toy Oaptain
J.H, Trash, of the steamer Sonoma,
wharved from Sydney, via Pago Pago
and   Honolulu.    "One   of   the     regular
trading steamers between Sydney and
ihe Tonga group reported the sinking
ui the islands,'* said Captain Trail;.
"The vessel steamed to where Falcon
island should have been, but it was
nowhere in sight. Just prior to this
the instruments at the Sydney naval
station showed that several violent
earthqunkc shocks, had taken place
about   20CO  miles  northeast of  Sydney
Microbes in Your Scalp
Authorities say that a microbe
causes baldness. If you are losing
hair try our remedy at our risk.
Professor Unna, of Germany, and
Dr. Sabouraud, the great French
Dermatologist, claim that a microbe causes baldness, and their
theory has been verified by eminent
scientists. This microbe destroys
the hair follicles, iu time causing the
scalp pores to close- and the BCalp to
become shiny. Then, it is believed
nothing will revive the growth. If
treated before this occurs, baldness
may bo overcome.
We know of nothing thai has
given such universal satisfaction in
treating the scalp and hair as Rexall
"93" Hair Tonic. Il has been de-
signcd after long study to overcome
the eausc of falling hair as discovered
by l'rof. Unna, Dr. Sabouraud and
Other scalp and hair specialists, and
we believe it will do more than anything else can t" remove dandruff and
steep foiling hair: and if any human
agency can promote :t new growth
of hair it will do that, too.
Wr want y iu to make us prove it.
We will pay for a month's treatment
of Rexall "03" Hair Tonic used during a trial, if you will use it according to dircetii ns, and are not
thoroughly satisfied. When we will
do thi>. you -ai' Ij hould aot he--itato
tei at least try it.
Start tic treatment today. Your
mere' request will get your money
back if you wan! it. Two sizes, SOc

Flour trial is essential but-
it is not your work!
Flour varies from time to
time in baking quality. This
is because wheat continually
varies according to soil conditions, etc.
Therefore, if baking results are to be constantly high,
baking tests are essential. Tt
PI 1PITM'S unreasonable to expect you
i'lJICI IJ^to make these tests at your
\ expense.
* So from each shipment of
«       wheat delivered at our mills
^      we take a ten pound sample.
^     This   is   ground   into   flour.
^    Bread is baked from the flour.
^   If this bread is high in quality
^ and large in quantity, we use
»the shipment.   Otherwise we
.sell it.
\ By simply asking for flour
bearing this mime youytan
always bo sure of morjybread

as slander, though wii 11 milder punishment, the amount of malice in the
conversation being the distinguishing
point between slander and gossip. The
arrest follows tin- charge that Kesoki

Range Has Solved The
"Help Problem"
Everywhere women are coping with the same
difficulty — -the securing of domestic help.
A Gurney-Oxford with its wonderful devices
for the saving of time and labor enables you to be
independent, if from necessity or choice you are
without a servant.
The Divided Flue distributes the heat evenly
throughout the oven, and by means of the Economizer the temperature is determined, kept constantt
or changed as desired. It is easily controlled by a
little lever working around six notches.
Dough and batter-mixtures will always be
light, thoroughly cooked, and nicely browned.
This stove saves you the dreaded black leading
process for it has an unchanging polished top.
Ifyou must do your own work you owe it to
yourself and to your family to spend less time in the
kitchen.
No woman need be a drudge with a Gurney-
Oxford range.

The Allen Players
" NOBODY'S WIDOW.*'
One of the bright spots of the repel
toiro of the Allen Players is* tho farci«
cal' romance by Anthony Hopwood —
"Nobody's Widow,-' lt is with this
comedy that Miss Blanche Bates broke
away from heavy emotional roles and
demonstrated her ability as a comedienne.
"Nobody's Widow" i=.' ultra-modern1
in both theme und treatment. The
Btory of the American woman who
marries an English Duke' and then pro
uounces him "dead" is replete with a
spirit of diablerie ihat is captivating.
The Duke refuses to stay dead, follows
her to America and pursues the widow
with a courtship as lively us it is
passionate. Unwilling to be his wife
and feeling a strong aversion to not
being his wife tbe tempestuous young
woman gets herself into some iistoiinil-
ingly tunny predicaments. Miss Felton
outdoes herself in the role of the volatile "widow" and gives added interest to it by wearing several imported
.mjowii-' of spectacular beauty.
The  Allen Players   will  open   their local engagement at  the Empress theatre
October     20lh,     with  the sensational
comedy-drama "The Spendthrift."
