13,000,000 Acres of Grain Planted In the
Three Prairie Provinces During
the Past Year.���Chinese
Celebration.
Those who are on the inside and know
the ways and habits of Jim Jeffries are
of the the opinion that the big boiler-
maker will be seen in the ring in a champion contest. That his opponent will be
Jack Johnson and the fight will take
place inside of a year is the general belief of fight fans around San Francisco.
Every indication points to the big
fellow's re-entry into the roped arena.
His recent decision to do light gymnasium work is taken by keener observers
as the first step, of tne former champion
to get ready for a battle with Johnson.
When they ask^d Jeff to fight the
black champion ha replied that he did
nit want to fight any more. "I have all
the money I want and intendjliving here
in Los Angeles with my family." But,
now the champion is doing light work
in a vaudeville stunt. All of which goes
to show that he means business.
12,000,000 Acres of Grain.
The statistics covering the production
and distribution of grain in the three
prairie provinces during 1908 sfiow that
the season was the most ���uccessful in
in the history of the west. The aggregate quantity was the largest ever- secured there, while the quality was above
the average. The rapidity and ease
with which the bulk ofjthe export surplus was moved out established a record/
in transportation which is not likely to
be surpassed'for many years to come,
and which is little less than remarkable
when the facilities for grain movement
are analyzed. Tl*e farmer as a general
rule, secured a' big yield, found a ready-
market at high prices, and received his
returns at an earlier period in the season than he had ever done before.
The principal attention is still paid
to the cultivation of wheat, although
oats is becoming a more and more important factor in the total output. Barley is not yet a conspicuous item, except
in Manitoba, but it is a good third. Flax
ranks next in order, and the other grains
are minor considerations.
Chinese New Tears Day
Yesterday was Chinese Now Year's
Day, a moveable feast, corresponding
to our Easter. The Chinese have two
years, civil and astronomical, the latter
being similar to our year. This system
has prevailed for over 4,000 years. The
civil year is of 12 lunar months, but
another is accordingly added by the
astronomer at Pekin. The rule for determining the date of the New Year came
into force with the Ham Dynasty 1,115
years ago, and in the, first day of that
moon, in the course of which the sun
enters the constellation, which we call
"Pisces,"or the fishes. This would
lead to confusion between the two years,
therefore periods of 19 years were est
ablished, 12 uf which have 12 moons each
and 7 thirteen moons. This will serve
to explain how it happened that the date
of the Chinese New Year varies. For a
few days the Chinese will keep holiday.
George C. Bent, a pioneer resident
of the Nicola country, is registered at
the Winters Hotel. Mr. Bent emigrated
from Cumberland County, N. S. in 1849
and about nine years later entered British Columbia by the.Fraser River route.
Staging was then the modern method of
transportation known to British North
America, when he lef r the Atlantic province, and his first acquaintance with
the steam railway was made in the
Rocky Mountains, at Spences Bridge. ���
News-Adv.
Local Option in Ontario.
The results of the locaroption campaign recently carried on in Ontario are
quite significant. In the new contests
on the Local Option question 17 municipalities voted for local option and 21
against. In this connection a three-
fifths vote is required to carry the locai
option measure.
Kelowna's water and electric light
plant is in operation. The total outlay
will come to about $30,000 for the electrical equipment and ��6,000 for the pump
trenching and water mains^��or the area
to be provided with water at the outset
for fire protection.
Mr. A. E. Miller, who, for the past
five years has been principal of the public schools at Revelstoke, was notified
on Monday of his appointment to the
position of inspector of public schools
for the province of British Columbia.
John Cowley is erecting a residence on
the Conklin Townsite, Nicola Ave., and
the Armstrong Cottage that he is vocating

namely R. J. McGregor and family. Mr.
McGregor is a painter and decorator of
the best and the handiwork can be seen
on the handsome posts in G. B. Armstrong's store and house.

FARMERS' INSTITUTE MEETING
WAS WELD  ATTENDED AND ELECTION OP OFFICERS TOOK PLACE.
Delegate Instructed To Bring Several
Interesting1 Questions Before Central Farmers Institute, Such
as Cattle Guards, Etc.
The Farmers'Institute meeting was held on Wednesday at
Hyland's Hall and was well
attended.
The following officers were
elected :
President, H. S. Cleasby.
Vice-Pres., Thos. Heslop.
Sec.-Treas,, W. B. Jackson.
Directors:
D. Dodding, C. D. Collett,
J. H. Collett, H. H. Matthews
and R. Clarke.
Auditors ;
R. M. Woodward, R. W.
Dodding.
Delegate to Central Farmers' Institute; H. H. Matthews.
The delegate was instructed
to bring before Central Farmers Institute the following questions :
The state of the Railway
fences and cattle guards, neither of which will keep stock
off the track.
The question of compensation by Railway Company for
stock killed on tracks.
The sending of a speaker or
speakers on Irrigation questions to Institutes in the Dry
Belt.
Also the question of stricter
enforcement of Thistle Act,
particularly on road allowance
and Indian Reserves.
The Delegates to the Irrigation Conference at Vernon
gave a concise and interesting
account of their trip. The secretary was instructed to see
that the provisions of "The
Horse Breeders Protection
Act,' were observed in Nicola
Institute District.
Kootenay Fruit Growers.
The Kootenay Fruit-growers' Association has made arrangements with the
Dominion Express company for the
agents of that company to arrange sales
and to do other business in connection
with the disposal of the next season's
crop.
This action will do away with the
services of a good many middle men,
and will probably prove to be a very
satisfactory way of handling the fruit
shipped to the prairies.

The Merritt citizens are not satisfied with the present state of affairs in regards to fire protection.
Something should be done of course,
if we want to get a real outfit we
should get it on time, for it would
be too hard on the present residents,
to raise enough funds to meet the
demands.    Therefore let's all get
together on February 3rd and discuss the matter thoroughly.
