OUR POSSIBILITIES
ADVOCATES    MANY   GOOD   POINTS
FOR ADVANCEMENT.
As  a   Fruit    Growing    3ection.���Why
Not Ship Fruit Outside ���Out up
Large  Ranches Into
Small Holdings.
Since the advent of the railroad into
our valley, which has linked us with
the balance of the world and given us
an opportunity to market the products
grown, the valley has not exported
anything excepting a few cars of potatoes, and of course the cattle that used
to be shipped from other points.
Nearly all the rauches, with the exception of a few that were cut up to
make room for the town of Merritt,
are being cultivated in the same way
and for the same purpose for which
they were located by the pioneers years
ago. That is to raise hay, feed the hay
to cattle and horses, then to be placed
on the market for the best price to be
obtained, which at times leaves the producer a very small margin.
The old pioneers that first broke
ground in the valley, when British Columbia was practically known only for
the gold thatthe population then sought,
deserve all the credit due them for developing under great difficulties, this
the banner valley of the province.
They have done their duty and many
of them who are among us at the present day have retired from active service to enjoy their last days in peace
and contentment, which they have
rightly earned by their never tiring ambition and bravery. They used to do
their work collectively as one unit, and
have demonstrated to the world that
Nicola Valley can produce many products besides cattle and horses. But it
seems that those who have taken up
the work of the pioneer, have not even
tried to profit by their forefathers experience, who learned under very adverse conditions, and did produce besides hay all sorts of roots, cereals and
fruits.
When the pioneer first experimented
with fruits many years ago they did
not know as we do today what variety
of apples was best suited for the country. The only recourse they had was to
send out, buy some fruit trees, have
them hauled in by wagon to their ranch,
plant them and let them grow. They
did not realize that trees needed just
as much attention as a horse or a cow.
The same as Topsy, she growed, the
trees were planted, they growed.
In this modern age, fruit growing has
become a science as well as an industry.
Our government has done much for the
fruit growers of this province and is doing more every day in teaching the people how to grow fruit and succeed.
Our pioneer did not have such a government. The only government he knew
was tho tax collector and it used to be
hard digging in the early days to settle
with him.
The pioneer also discovered coal and
many have lived to see train loads of
coal exported to be used and praised by
the outside world. But alas, many of
them will not live to see train loads of
apples shipped in a like manner. Instead apples are being shipped to us.
And why? The simple reason is lack
of that stable and undaunted energy
that our old pioneers possessed. Many
say, "we have not time." You must
make time as that is the only way to
succeed.
If you have too much land, sell it to
some one that has got the time to raise
fruit. Fruit is the best money maker
outside of a gold mine in the province,
and many a bearing orchard is a big
gold mine to its owners. There is no
danger of an over production, British
Columbia is growing, the Northwest is
growing, in fact the entire west is rapidly advancing, and let our beautiful
valley grow with it.
People like fruit, everybody likes it,
even the native siwash loves it almost
as well as he does whisky. Then why
not grow it here instead of shipping it
in.   Ship it out.
The Okanagan country was blessed
with a railroad about eighteen years
ago and at that time the farmer raised
cereals, cattle and horses. After the
railroad entered their valley they started to raise fruit, the large land owners
sold their land to fruit growers, the
land was too valuable to raise wheat
and hay, they sold it mostly in small
lots and retired. Today those of the
Okanagan pioneers who are living, can
see trainloads of fruit leaving their
former ranches instead of trainloads of
cattle and the profits are tenfold greater. The same thing can be done and
will be done in ��� the Nicola Valley, we
may not be able to raise peaches but
we can raise enough of the more hardier
varieties to make homes and employment for thousands of people.
The resources of Nicola Valley are varied and unlimited and there people in all
parts of the world that want an opportunity to make homes, those homes
that are made on small tracts of land
that have reached the highest state of
cultivation. The cosy home cottage, the
lawn, the shade trees and roses twining
about the pillars of the veranda. Real
paint on the house and fence, orchards
laden with fruits which are in demand
in all the great markets of the u i Id.
The home where we can finu happy,
comfortable, contented and prosperous
men, women and children surrouuded
in that tone of refinement found in the
city home, yet attended with that freedom of a healthy rural life.
Nicola Valley should have today
thousands of such homes had the experiments of our noble pioneers been
made use of when we knew we were
going to be linked with the outside
world by a railroad.
Wake up now and do keep up with
the times, help multiply and replenish
Nicola Valley not only by getting married but also by inducing the larger
land owners to cut up their holdings into small lots, thus making room for
the new homeseeker who always makes
an industrious and law abiding citizen.
Nicola Valley has room for thousands
of  such citizens.       Well Wisher.

Midway.���Men State They
Ar j Innocent.
Two men John Rice a Cornisn-
man, and Harold Green a Welshman were arrested at Middlesboro
Collieries on Tuesday morning by
Constable Asntou of Midway and
Constable Clark of Merritt on suspicion as beinj.', the men who held
up a saloon and shot the proprietor,
Thornet, at Midway on July 25th.
They were taken to Nicola and
remanded for eight days, and
were taken to Nelson on Thursday's train by Constable Ash ton.
L,ast week Chief Constable Dav-
itt of Nelson wired to Nicolr a description of the men and Constable
Clark lost no ti 'e in locating them
at Middlesboro, and watched them
until the arrival of Constable Ash-
ton when thenrrest was made.
The men had been employed at
the mines since Sept. 8tn. having
arrived here in company with two
other men, who state that they
first met the prisoners at Oro, Wash
on Aug. 16th and worked with
them at different camps along-the
Great Northern Railway construction, otherwise they knew nothing
about them.
Rice and Greer, are very reticent,
only stating that they are not the
men wno committed Jic murder.
Constable Ash ton from the description of the murderers traced
Rice and Green along the railway
camps but at Hted) ey lost them, but
continued on the way, afterwards
discovering thatthe/ had separated
each taking another companion and
coming on to Merritt. Constable
Ashtom states tha t the men closely
resemble .the description of the
murders from size and general appearance, but as to their faces it
was impossible to say as at the time
of the holdup and shooting the
murderers wore masks
Since arrest,Gre< n has ^ateu very
little and feels keenly his position.

Those are Chicoutimi-Saguenay and
Gaspe, in Quebec; Comox-Atlin, Koot-
enr.y and Yale-Cariboo, in British Columbia, and the Yukon. In the last

other constituencies the date is left in
the hands of the returning officers.

The death took place of Charles
M. Newkirk, at his residence, at
Merritt, on Sunday morning at six
o'clock. The deceased had been
ailing for the past four months with
heart disease and for the past few
weeks it was expected at any moment that death would carry him
away.
He was sixty-three years of age
and was born in New York state
and had been in this province for
about twenty-eight years and
located about twenty years ago in
Voght Valley a short distance from
Merritt, and resided there continuously until about four mouths ago

the ranch to Merritt,
He leaves a wife (daughter of
Wm. Voght) and one daughter,
Mrs. L> Thompson of Coldwater,
two sons, Wm. H. and James to
mourn his death.

freight line to the joast to head off J.J.

secure control of this line.
No Application to Nicola Valley.
It is wise to disr mnt rumor and gossip about 90 per  cent, and then some
more.���E.:.
Mrs. Russoll Page and a few other
women have pledged $12,000 a year to
the National American Woman Suffrage
association for the next five years.

were $3600 in 1892, and $25,000 in 1907.

Blaze at Nicola.
What might have proved a seious fire
at Nicola was nipped in the bud Tuesday, when an old fashioned cement
chimney took fire in the residence of A.
R. Carrimrton. J. G. Thynne, A. W.
Strickland and Carroll Charlton who
were on the tennis grounds nearby had
their attention drawn to it by members
of Mr. Carririgton's family and hurried
to the spot and in a few minutes Mr.
Thynne vas on the roof and with the
assistance of those below soon had the
blaze extinguished. Much credit is due
Mr. Thynne for the active manner and
advice given at the time.

It contains the paraphrase of the
121st Psalm, has a marginal correction by the distinguished author,
the Duke of Argyll, who married
a daughter of Queen Victoria, and
who, as Marquis of Lome, was
Governor-General of Canada. The
change was made by the Duke to

his works, and there are other regulations which the lessees will be
bound over to perform in a sum to
be determined by the Minister of
the Interior.

The Old Bridge on  the Cariboo Trail,
Wasted away are its timbers,
And rusted its bands of steel;
No more will its proud old pathway
Thrill 'neath the packer's heel.
Back, at the white man's coming
Its strong new cables swung;
And many the sturdy miner
It bore with hope still young.
Borne to a land op promise,
Bright with the lure of gold,
Gold that might cure heart-longing
And cheer when the heart grows old.
Long was the march and weary,
But vigor and hope pressed on,
Marching and toiling, and hoping,
Always away with tho dawn.
Some in that  pulsing  army
Returned with hope still high,
And some with laggard footstep,
And some laid down to die.
And all are slowly dropping,
Like old planks, in the stream
That restless, ever surges,
With swell, and surge, and gleam.
But the good old bridge still lingers,
With its weathered rusty stays,
Recalling to us the heroes
That passed in the earlier days.
