MERRITT, B. 0, FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1909.
$^. a Year.
PAULINE JOHNSON
WILL APPEAR IN MERRITT ON THE
SIXTEENTH AUGUST
Famous Indian Poetess, Accompanied
by Walter McRaye, Impersonator, to Give One of their Fa.
mous Concerts
A treat is in store for the genera!
public on the evening of Monday,
August 16th, when E. Pauline
Johnson (Tekahionwake), the Mohawk poet-entertainer, in sketches,
poems and legends, will appear in
Menzies' hall. She will be accompanied by Walter McRaye, impersonator, in sketches from Dr. Drnm-
niond's "Habitant" folklore poems
of French Canada.
Tekahionwake, the Indian girl in
whose veins runs the fiery blood of
the Mohawks (who is herself the
daughter of the late Chief G. H
M. Johnson, "Onwanonsyshon,'
Head Chief of the Iroquois Confe
deracy in Canada) was one of the
sensations of the past London Season. For this gifted daughter of
the red Indian race, is not only an
accomplished reader of her own
verse, but her poems are of a quality that stamp them as of unusually high order. Clad in her native
costume, she appeared before some
of the most fashionable English
audiences and her rendering of her
own compositions captured their
admiration.
Of Walter McRaye, T. P. O'Connor says this in M.A.P.: This Canadian Grossmith possesses rare
faculty in depicting the quaint
character of the French Canadian
as portrayed in Dr. Drummond's
delightfully humorous and pathetic
verses. He possesses the rare gift
that is sometimes called, "getting
over the footlights" and described
as, "creating an atmosphere."
Don't forget the date these gifted
people will appear in Merritt---
Monday evening, August 16th.
The energy of 25,000,000 horses can be
harnessed and utilized from its majestic
rivers. Its fisheries are of unsurpassed
extent, and British Columbia is greater
in extent than the German empire and
France combined, and it has 60,000,000
acres of the richest fruit garden and
pasture land, and 182,000,000 acres of
forests. Its navigable rivers and lakes
exceed those of all Europe, and it is
destined to become the home of a race
of people even more vigorous, more
strenuous and as heroic as any that has
ever yet lived."

Flowery Words
P. A. O'Farrell, speaking of British
Columbia, says:
"It has been apparent to me for a
quarter of a century that British Columbia would take rank in time amongst
the greatest nations of the world. It
has beyond peradventure the finest climate, the most superb scenery and the
most fruitful valleys in all the world.
Its mountains are honeycomed with
vast deposits of gold and silver ores, of
lead and zink, of copper, coal and iron.
The diamond drill on the Diamond
Vale property was removed this week
to the new location on the other side of
the Nicola river.
Big Time Is to Come off at Quiichena
This  Labor Day. ��� Nicola  Wins
First Match in the Tennis
Tournament
Tho people of Merritt need now have
no fears that the same state of affairs
will prevail with regard to railway station accommodation as has existed in
the past, according to F. P. Wilson,
C. P. R. resident engineer, Vancouver.
Mr. Wilson, was in Merritt this week
and informs The Herald ,that the new
station will be started now within two
weeks. It will be a one story structure,
70x24 feet in dimensions. The station,
which will be of the latest type, will be
built between the Voght street crossing and the Y. There will be an office,
waiting room, freight room and express
room. Material is now en route and by
week after next should see work well
under way. It is also given out by Mr.
Wilson that the station will be completed in two months after construction
is started. The station will be built of
reinforced concrete.
A section house will also be built at
Merritt.
A shelter station, similar to that at
Coyle, will be erected at Canford, which
it is expected will be finished this fall.
The previous delay in connection with
the building of the local station is accounted for by reason of the fact that
so much work being under way it is
hard to procure the necessary construction materials.

Mrs. John Collett, and son, L. G. Lobsinger, for a month. En route they
spent a month visiting children in Saskatchewan. Mr. and Mrs. Lobsinger
were greatly impressed with conditions
in the prairie province, especially as
regards the wheat crop, and are more
than delighted with the climate of this
valley.
The Home Journal for August is full
of many new and interesting features.
Dabor Day at Quiichena
According to present indications
Quiichena is this year to have a
greater Labor day celebration than
ever. The purses are larger, the
track is being improved and many
good horses will compete for the
prizes.
Jos. Guichon, manager of the
Quiichena hotel, is making elaborate preparations for the accommodation and entertainment of the
many visitors who will be present
from all over the valley as well as
from outside points.
Labor day at Quiichena is always
looked forward to with pleasurable
anticipation and this year will certainly be no exception to the rule.
Following is the horse racing
program. One or two details may
be altered, and if so they will be
given next wee"
Fishing is rather good at the lake.
W. B. Jackson has a contract to put
up the hay on the Clapperton Meadows
at Nicola.
F. E. Henderson bought a team of
roadsters at Nicola which he will take
to the coast.
The Anglican church is much improved with a coat of paint, and the
workmanship is a credit to Mr. Eagles
who received the contract to do the
renovating.
The C.P.R. are contemplating enlarging the cattle corrals at Nicola. The
present conditions are only capable of
holding about 250 head of cattle, which
is much too small for the shipments
from this point.
The painting fever is spreading in
our burg; the fortunate so far are
Messrs. A. E. Howse, S. Kirby, A. W.
Strickland, W. E. Potter and the Anglican church. If a few more would
catch on it would add to the appearance
of the town.
R. Lyons, representing P. Burns &
Co., Vancouver, was in Nicola and has
arranged to ship 17 cars of cattle every

Board of Trade."
At the board of trade meeting on
Wednesday evening in Menzies'
hall there was a large representation present.
It was decided to retain the original name of the board, ie., the
Merritt Board of Trade, a large majority of the members present
deeming it inadvisable to have a
joint board consisting of several
towns as their interests would be
very liable to clash in the near future.

A Frenchman, named Bleirot,
crossed the English channel Monday in his small aeroplane, a distance of 21 miles in 21 minutes. He
receives a prize of ,��5,000.
The sports at Quiichena this Labor day will exceed those conducted any previous year, both as regards the purses in the horse racing
events and the general good time
to be provided.
F. Mansfield was in from a trip
to Princeton with his freighting
outfit ou Friday last, aud believes
there should be a close season for
mosquitos, hard times, train robbers and "dead ones."
An Indiana preacher gives it as
his opinion that girls like to dance
only because they can thus get
themselves hugged. He surely is
mistaken. Most girls could get
themselves hugged by merely stepping behind the door and it is generally understood that hugging iu
such a place is much more satisfaction to ball parties than out in the
middle of a lighted ball room.
Says "Bruce" in the Saturday
Sunset: Merritt, British Columbia,
a new town in the Nicola valley,
boasts a population of 500 to 800
souls. It has seven stores, three
hotels, a railway, a couple of coal
mines, livery stables, billiard par-
cafes, opera house, bank and newspaper, but it has neither a church
nor a railway station. The two
great ruling powers of British Columbia seem to have overlooked
Merritt up to the present.
"WHAT WOULD YOU DO"
If you were suddenly thrown upon your
own resources to battle for existence
and had no trade or special training or
means of livelihood? "Without Life
Insurance" your wife may be put in
just such a position. Why not secure
protection for her and your children by
joining
THE  MODERN WOODMEN
OF AMERICA?
The largest and best Fraternal Beneficiary Society in the whole world.
If you find it hard to pay interest on
the mortgage and meet the everyday
living expenses of your family, how do
you suppose your wife could pay the interest and keep the family together if
you should happen to die? A certificate
in the Modern Woodmen of America
furnishes the means by which the wife
can keep the family with her. Are you
a member? if not, get in on the ground
floor and become a charter member.

But for "Tex" Elliott's presence of
mind Albert Quinville would be sprouting wings about now. He and two
other young fellows went into the Cold-
water for a swim. Albert got beyond
his depth, and had a struggle for life.
The other boys, thinking him fooling,
and not knowing he couldn't swim a
stroke, simply laughed at the ' 'performance." "Tex" happened to appear
on the bank and saw at a glance how
things were. He abjured the boys in
forceful terms to rescue their companion. Consequently, Albert was pulled
out as he had come up for the third
time and was soon resusticated.
