The following u'rcular was sent to all
.subscribers to the government local
telephone exchange last week.
Government Telephone Service.
Circular No. 3.
Kamloops, B.C., Sept. 17th, IflOfi.
To All Subscribers, Government Telephone Line Nicola Exchange,
Owing to the very large increase of
the business done on the trunk line, n
has been necessary to cancel all "deadhead" privileges on the main line, in
order to rat the business through.
A nominal rental for the local exchange ef $1 has been arranged, and
you will be charged each time vou use
the trunk line. A 1 eduction in tne minimum charge ef conversation has also
bein mad'.'. We trus; you will conform
to the new order of things as you have
dene in the past, and it will be the endeavor of the management to give you
the best possible service, improving
much on the past by having the line
clear for your business, and by reducing the minimum for the purpose of reducing th�� Coat of conversations to you
v hen brevity is practiced. It has very
ofc o come to the attention of this office,
toil in the past much time has been
contumed, and the Hne held in discussing things, such as the weather and
etc., which does not represent any commercial value to the parlies c_o.__n.ed.
This action is taken, not for the purpose of limiting your privileges, but for
the purpose of increasing the efficiency
of the service to yourselves and the
general public,   Faithfully yours,
Chas. S. Stevens,
With regard to the charges for conversations on the trunk line the following are the rates: Where the charge
for a message is 25 cents for ten winds
the rate for conversation will be 10 cts.
per minute; where the message rate is
85 cts. the conversation will be 15 cts.
per minute; where the message rate is
40 cts. the conversat on rate will be 20
cents and where the message rate is 50
cents the conversation rate will be 25
cents per minute. The minimum charge
for all conversations.will be 15 cents. -
The 10 cent per minute rate will apply from all points up to Hedley, to
Kamloops and to Lower Nicola and
to Coutlee. Conversations to Vernon
and Kelowna will be charged 25 cents
per minute, to Summerland, Peachland
and Okanagan Falls 20 cents, to Brad-
shaw,s, Richter's and Keremeos 18 cts,
per minute.
While there can be no doubt that the
business on the main line has become
congested. The Nicola Herald feels that
the proposed alteration will prove a decided hardship to the majority of the
local subscribers, who are by no means
responsible for the congestion. It
means that nearly every user of the
telephone must pay much more heavily
than in the past for the use of his instrument. An alternative scheme should
have been submitted to local subscribers
by which a flat raui would be charged
for the use of telephone say to all
points from Kamloi ps to Princeton. It
would certainly be .; more business like
way than the proposed scheme which
we are afraid will be provocative of
much friction.
We feel sure that if C. S. Stevens
the superintendent, who has given much
thought and time to the carrying out of
thia scheme, will give this matter his
further consideration, he will realize
that in the case of thii majority of subscriber* here he has unintentionally
doubled and even trebled the rates they
have been previously in the habit of

Tne Sanitarium
Dr. Fagan, provincial medical health
officer, returned from his trip of inspection in search oi' a site for a provincial
sanitarium for consumptives, to the
coast last week. He stated that the
sanitarium would probably be erected
on Kamloops Lake, and that he was in
favor of building a smaller sanitarium
at a point higher than Kamloops Lake,
where it would not be so hot and where
patients shoe' I be removed from Kamloops.
In order to take advantage of the
Hon. James Dunsmuir's offer, it was
necessary for the citizens of th,' province to raise $40,000 in a month. A
committee of businessmen in New Westminster is already working to raise
West minster's share of the contribution
and Dr. Fagan hopes, before he leaves
Vancouver, to have a committee of local
business men busily engaged in raisin;

Montreal. It isunderstood that Messrs.
McConnell & Millar have succeeded in
organizing a syndicate to go on with
the development of the Golden Sovereign and that they will in this deal retain a large interest themselves.
It has not been decided just when development operations will be resumed,
but an expert is now on his way in to
examine and report upon the best methods. A hoist and other necessary machinery will be ordered at once.
Messrs. Cochrane and Hibbard visited
the properly today and on their return
expressed themselves as highly gratified with the prospects of the Sovereign.
Lvery person in the Nicola Valley
and the Aspen Grove camp will be glad
to learn that the property is to be
worked and sanguine wishes for its success is expressed on every side. The
success nf the Sovereign will mean tin
development of tho camp and the establishment on a large scale of a splendid mining industry right at our doors.
Grand Prairie on Friday. There is a
strong rivalry between the two clubs
and there is sure to be a good game.

are no particulars as to the game between Quilchena and Kamloops, but it

large amount of development work has
been done on the claims aptly termed
the Peacock Group by theirowner Thos.

of view this group of claims is admirably situated for economical working,
the owner having a record on the creek
for a plentiful supply of water forpow-
i r pui-poses, more than enough to supply the necessary machinery with power.
The handling of the ore to the railroad
would not be a difficult undertaking as
it is a first class concentrating proposition.
The property has excellent showings
and it is hoped now that the railroad
transportation is so near at hand that
outside parties will take hold of perhaps
as fine an investment as is to be had in
this upper country. Enough development work has been done to prove that
there is an excellent body of ore and
very little work would be required to
place the property on a shipping basis.

Do you realize that every statement of a large fish caught, of a fine
deer killed, of a bag of jrrouse, of a
monster apple, of a prodigious cro]
of potatoes, of perfect weather conditions, of the fruit industry, of the
tobacco industry, of every new industry or enterprise, is an advertisement for the valley? No, you don't!
And you fail accordingly, to giv.

the Courier plays, and some regard
advertising as a cold-blooded  bus
iness proposition through which, by
paying a certain aim,nut out for advertising, certain goods are brought
before the public and larger quantities are sold.   They want a direct
return, overlooking the fact that the
constant publicity given to the  resources of the valley  in  our  news
columns brings in new settlers, consequently new customers; and that
if it were not for the generosity
and public spirit of those merchants
who do advertise this paper would
cease to exist.   In these days no
one disputes the benefits to a district of a local paper, and by a curious paradox, least of all  the man
who does not advertise.    Yet he is
selfish and unthinking enough to
let others bear the burden which
he should gladly share.---Kelowna

simply in the exercise of intelligence,
care, patienccand tireless industry, lis
principles are two in number: first to
k.ep the surface of tht I n , und. rcui i-
vation loose ar.d finely | uheiiaid. 'Jl.is
forms a soil mulch that permits tie r.ni.s
and melting snow t�� pi ret.late r_:u.i ly
through to the compact..! soil be.t lUl
and at the same tiinepn ven's ih.. m-i: t-
ure stored in the ^ruiin_i from being
brought to the surface by the hot ary
air. The s.X'ond is to k.e,) u.e mommI
finely pulverised and firmly comp.it'ud,
increasing its water holding capacity
and capillary attraction and placing it in
the best physical condition for the germination of seeds and the development
of plant roots. The dry farmer thus
stores water not in dams and artifi i i
reservoirs, but just where it can b
reached by the rt ots of growing cropj.
Through these principles a rainfall of
12 inches can be conserved so effect i.vly
that it will produce better rest; Its than
are usually expected of an annual rainfall of ii inches in humid America.
Water moves in the soil by capillary
attraciion-up as _____ asdown. To prevent it from rising to the surface after
it has been stored beneath is the primary object of the loose soil mulch composing the two top inches of soil. This
answers the purpose of a lid on the natural reservoir, preventing the moisture
from rising to the surface and thus
evaporating in the hot dry atmosphere.
At the same time, this soil mulch forms
an open porous bed upon which the rains
and snows fall, permitting the moisture
to percolate readily through into the
compacted ground beneath. Special
agricultural implemcnls have been designed and brought into use for packing
the subsoil and for stirring and pulverizing the surface.
After the land has been deeply plowed
and the undersoil packed by the subsoil
packer, and the surface harrowed or
pulverized, a full year should elapse before the crop is planted in order to obtain the best results.
When the snows of winter and early
spring melt, instead of draining off the
surface or evaporating, as they have
done for ages, they sink into the reservoir prepared for their reception. As
soon as the surface is dry enough, the
ground is harrowed over and over again
to place the mu'ch in proper condition.
This is repeated after each rain until
seeding tim, arrives. The seed is then
drilled in just deep enough to place it
below the soil mulch in llie moist compacted soil beneath, causing germination in the quickest possible time. After planting, the dry farmer continues
to harrow over the ground after each
rainfall until the growing crop is too
far advanced to permit of this without
causing destruction. By that time it
covers the ground fairly well, protecting it lo some extent from the sun and
hot winds and making the constant
loosening of the soil mulch less imperative.
No sooner is the crop harvested than
preparation begins forthe next seeding.
The plow follows close behind the harvester cutting a furrow seven inches
deep. Rehind the plow follows the subsoil packer, similar in shape to a disk
harrow, but having ten sharp wheels
that cut deeply into the plowed ground
and press the soil firmly together. The
packer is drawn very slowly, but all
ground plowed is packed and harrowed
before work is stopped for dinner or a
night's rest. No matter how long a
time must elapse before the planting of
the next crop, the ground is harrowed
over after every rain, but nevt r when
it is dry. Through winter and summ.r
this persistent and untiring stirring of
the soil mulch is continued whether any
thing be panted or not. The dry farmer therefore knows no season of rest
or idleness. He knows that eternal
diligence is the price he must pay for
good crops.
It has been thoroughly demonstrated
that rational dry farming methods as
above outlined will produce from three
to five times the results of ordinary
farm methods on the same lands.
