QUILCHENA SPORTS
POLO CLUB S RACE MEETING VERY
SUCCESSFUL.
A Good Day.  An Enthun astlc Crowd
and  Exciting Events  Make an
Excellent Afternoon's Fun.
-Dance In Evening.
TV s])<irts at Quilchena on Saturday
afternoon, under the auspices of the
iml'i club, were an unqualified success,
and the general comment was that no
more enjoyable afternoon's sport has
ever been held in the district. The
weather was all that could be desired,
and those present made up for their
lack of numbers by their enthusiasm
over the various events. The half-mile
npen was a walk-over for S. Kirby's
horse, Ginger; but the gymkhana events
evoked much spirited competition among
the contestants and provided the finest
sport of the meeting. The following
are the results of the various events:
Half-mile open-S. Kirby's Ginger
1st; Mrs. Mickle's Jim 2nd.
Quarter-mile pony-G. A. Lafferty .
Kairy 1st; S. Kirby's Mike 2nd.
Threading-the-needle race-F. Riley
1st; J. Guichon, jr., 2nd.
Cigar and soda race-H. Lodwig 1st;
F. Riley 2nd.
Hitting the polo ball race-J. Guichon,
jr., 1st; W. Hawkins 2nd.
Hurdle race-W. Hawkins.
A Cinderella dance was held in the
hall in the evening and was fairly well
attended. Dancing was kept up till a
quarter to twelve.when an adjournment
to the hotel for supper closed the proceedings of the day.
The polo club is to be commended for
their enterprise in getting up N excellent a race meeting, and it is hoped that
ere long they will provide another Saturday afternoon's sport as excelled as
this last.
Messrs. Guichon, Moore and Dr.
Cross as judges and A. W. Strickland
as starter gave general satisfaction,
and the program was gone through without a hitch in the proceedings.
Change Names of Stations.
The C. P. R. has made two changes
in the names of stations on Ihe Nicola
branch. The reason for the changes is
that they conflict with poslollice names
in eastern Canada. The station known
as Cartwright, near where the construc-
t'on hospital was located, is now known
U (liver, and Woodward station is now
Coyle.

Sharpies Tubular Crfam Separator
A little care about what you buy to
help make dairying easy and profitable
will not be wasted.
Just as there is no other separator as
good as the Tubular, so there is no
Cooley Can or dilution process creamer
equal to the poorest separator. The
separator and the Cooley Can, or process creamers, are entirely dill'erent
and should never be confused.
A Tubular Separatorgets all the cream
-gets it immediately after milking���
saves handling, ice and storage-gets
ihe skimmed milk sweet, warm and
wholesome for the calves and pigs-
saves washing a lot of pans and cans.
On the other hand, a Cooley Can, or a
process creamer, wastes one-fourth the
cream (a loss to you of one-fourth the
profit)-requires numerous cans, storage room, and ice-cools and injures the
skimmed milk until it is almost value-
less-requires the washing of numerous
cans-in fact, proves itself practically
no better than pans. It is well to avoid
cans and process creamers if you are
looking for least labor and biggest pro-
lits.
Be sure and see a Sharpies Tubular
Cream Separator now on exhibition at
the Stage Office, Nicola.

W. Cross, agent, Ashcroft, B. C.
The sporting blood of many "horsy"
individuals in the district is already considerably exercised over the Victoria
Day races in Nicola.
Chas. F. Law arrived at Coutlee 00
Friday last, and after a short stay will

Kaleidoscope.  Nicola's Bridge Is

The plans are drawn and construction
will soon commence on a new hotel for
J. Guichon at Quilchena. Mr. Guichon
has had this matter under consideration
for some time, and on his latt visit to
the coast final arrangements were made
for supplies. The new hotel will be a
tirsl-class and up-to-date structure,with
a large dining room and commodious accommodation for guests. The site for
the hotel has not yet been definitely decided upon, but this will be settled this
week, and construction started right
away. It is the intention of the owner
to build a hotel second to none in the
upper country, and to provide accommodation for visitors during the summer
months, adequate for the needs of so
ideal and pleasant a summer resort.
For some time the accommodation of
the existing hotel has been taxed to its
utmost, and with the improved facilities
for travel now in full swing, increased
accommodation has been found necessary, which will be provided by the new
hotel which will shortly be under construction. The new hotel will, to use a
hackneyed phrase, till a long felt want,
and there is no doubt that Quilchena
will benefit considerably through having
first-class up-to-date accommodation for
the numerous visitors who are bound to
be attracted to this nature's beauty
spot, and which as an ideal summer resort is unexcelled in the province.

A Clever Mechanic.
When Byron Earnshaw, of Minnie
Lake, was in Nicola recently, he paid
a visit to the Herald office, and brought
with him a kaleidoscope of his own construction, which is rather unique. In
the ordinary instrument the figures are
made by means of colored glass, and the
instrument is rotated to give the various patterns. In the instrument constructed by Mr. Earnshaw any sort of
material can be placed in a plate below
the instrument, and the plate ll rotated,
forming some most beautiful patterns,
with a stereoscopic effect. This improved instrument is the invention of
Mr. Earnshaw's brother, and has had a
very large sale. The patterns formed
by this improved kaleidoscope have been
extensively used as designs for carpets,
rugs, etc., and can be used for all kinds
of ornamental work. Anyone interested can inspect the instrument at the
Herald office, where Mr. Earnshaw lias
kindly left it.

made up by revenue from other sources,
and with the increasing prosperty of

well, who has a lease of the land in
question.

Fred P. Wilson, representing McLennan, Feely & Co., Vancouver, and
C. V. Jones, of Nelson, representing
Mason & Risch pianos, were in Nicola
valley this week doing business.
Dr. John T. Carroll, who has been a
resident of Vancouver for the past
twenty years, died in that city on Monday evening. The doctor was interested
in coal property in the Nicola valley.
H. L. Roberts has received the appointment of agent for the Cascade
Steam Laundry at Vancouver. Laundry

suitable piece of property upon which
to erect a summer residence.
The New Bridge.
The bridge over the Nicola river had
the liiiishllig touches put to it l.isl week
and the approaches to it finished off.
The result is altogether satisfactory and
reflects credit on Foreman Trodden and
those under him for the speedy e\.-cation of the work and the workmanlike
manner in which it was gone about.
Just as the work was finished Dick
received a hurry wire to proceed to
Ashcroft to assist on the new bridge
over the Thompson river, which is at
present under construction.
W. C. Ward and C. W. R. Thomson

ly on time, and those interested are requested to be on the ground in readiness. An endeavor will be made to run
j off the other events for men between
| these races, and it will materially assist
the committee in their work if those
who inte.id entering for these events
will be on hand at the time so stated,
so as to prevent any delay and allow
the committee to mn off their program
without causing needless dissatisfaction.
All these athletic sports will be run off
on the same ground as last year, in
front of the athletic association grounds.
The horse races and gymkhana events
will be run on the track on the north
side of the road above the cemetery,
and will start at one o'clock prompt.
The first item on the program, the steer
roping competition against time, with a
prize of a stock saddle, blanket and bridle, valued at fifty dollars, should
be the source of keen competition, and
it is hoped that a strong contingent of
local cowboys will be on hand and entertain the visitors with a sight of this
seldom seen event. The attention of
ranchers and stock raisers is called to
this event, with the hope that they will
interest the cowboys in it and so provide a large and representative entry
for an event in which they themselves
take the keenest interest. Entries for ,
this event must be in the hands of the I
secretary, G. A. Lafferty, Nicola, on or
before 12 o'clock noon on Wednesday. I
May 22nd. Entries for the otherevents ]
can lie made on the day of the sports.
The other events on the horse racing I
program call for no special comment
save that the prizes are more liberal
than in former years, and it is hoped
that on this account good entries will |
be received, and so provide a royal afternoon's sport.
The tug-of war will be pulled off after |
the horse races.
Entries for the tennis tournament |
must be in the hands of either H. L.

CLEAN UP PREMISES.
The following suggestions by the
Penticton Press are timely, and are
appropriate for all settlements:
"Before the hot weather sets iu
everybody should see that their
premises are thoroughly cleaned
and kept clean during the summer.
No manure or other rubbish should
be allowed to accumulate, and all
outhouses should be so constructed
and kept clean as to prevent contamination of wells or the atmosphere. The water probably will
be higher this year than last, hence
it will be more difficult to keep
wells free from impurities. If
every resident of a community realizes his responsibility in this
in this particular regard any serious sickness throughout the warm
months will be prevented. People
should not endeavor to evade or
merely to comply with the letter of
the law. If sanitary laws were not
essential to the preservation of
health they wonld not be enacted,
and it is the duty of every resident
to do more than the law requires,
not merely for the benefit of his
own health and that of his family,
but also that of his neighbors as
well. Self respect demands that
we do not permit the accumulation
of garbage or filth to befoul the
atmosphere and thus drive people
a block or two out of their way
rather than pass our premises.
The town is yet young and too
much should not be expected in
the overcoming of the obstacles of
nature, but let everyone determine
that we shall have at least a clean
and healthy town."

FRIDAY, MAY 24TH
ROD AND GUN FOR MAY.
Fishing is the suUject uppermost
in the minds of all sportsmen at
the opening of the beautiful mouth
of May, and as the never-failing
interpreter of the sportsmen's wishes and feelings, the May number of
"Rod and Gun and Motor Sports
in Canada," contains many fishing
stories. No fisherman should set
out on his trip without this companion, and whatever may have
been his experiences in fishing he
will gain much from a perusal of
the pages of this bright magazine.
He may read of fishing experiences
in five of the provinces of Canada;
he may also note the defence of the
dog advocates against the onslaught
of those who ascribe the vanishing
of our deer entirely to the dogs;
and can further find Interest and
recreation in perusing the hunting
stories. Alpine Club doings, an
account of the Automobile, Motor
Boat and Sportsmen's Show at
Montreal, with boating, trap-shooting, etc., all make fine reading.
