In accord with the season, the
stores of the town now present
a Christmas aspect. Windows
have been decorated and articles
particularly tempting to Christmas buyers have been displayed.
Although some of the stores are
not making the specialty of toys
and other Christmas goods that
they did last year, others have
put in far larger stocks.
The windows of W. R. King's
store on Ellis Street exhibit a
very creditable display of fruits
while, within, a considerable
stock of toys and fancy goods are
arranged so as to attract the attention of prospective purchasers. A number of souvenir calendars, any one of which would
make a dainty, though inexpensive, Christmas present, are
worthy of inspection. The usual
line of groceries is supplemented
by almost everything conceivable
in the way of fruits���apples, Jap
and California oranges, grapes,
cranberries, crystalized fruits,
Smyrna figs, Persian figs, London layer raisins in connoiseur
clusters���nuts, sweet potatoes,
celery, Maderia fruit cakes and
Christie's plum puddings.
Schubert's grocery displays a
line of candies and nuts to advantage, as well as a full supply
of apples, Jap and California oranges, bananas, figs and dates.
One window is devoted to a handsome line of chinaware. Okanagan canned tomatoes and pumpkins are now stocked. Apply
here for Ogilvie's Royal Household flour.
C. E. Pomeroy's fruit and confectionery store on Smith St. is
a credit to its owner. Bananas,
oranges, lemons, apples, figs,
grapes, dates and fancy chocolates are a few of the lines carried in quantity.
Jos. A. Nesbitt has always on
hand an assortment of stereoscopic views, and gramophone
records. Take a look at his wagons, sleighs and toys for the
children.
The butcher shop of Crowley
and Co. is well stocked with
beef, pork, mutton, veal, ducks,
geese, chickens, oysters, and a
large selection of fish.
Norman Hill, ladies' and gents'
furnisher, has numerous articles
suitable for Christmas presents.
For ladies,���fancy collars, belts,
fancy and souvenir handkerchiefs, shawls, fascinators, table
and piano drapes, cushion tops
and centre pieces. For gentlemen, ���latest styles in ties, fancy
braces, smoking jackets, and
shoes and slippers of any style
or make.
A. H. Wade has not this year
gone extensively into Christmas
goods, but carries his usual reliable stock of drygoods and groceries.
Although Christmas goods are
scarcely in the line of the hardware merchant, the Penticton
Hardware Co. have some elegant
carving sets, knives, forks, and
spoons that would make first
class Christmas presents.
G. A. Layton's new grocery
store on Main St. has a bright
and clean appearance. Mr. Lay-
ton intends to make fruit and
confectionery a specialty.
A glance into the window of
H. Oliver's boot and shoe store
will reveal a display of footwear
to suit the tastes of the most
fastidious.
Nothing make nicer Christmas
gifts than jewelery. Take a look
at Gordon Harris' stock of
watches, chains, necklets, lockets, bracelets, brooches, and
scarf pins. Also see his stock of
cut glass and silver plate ware.
If you want an article that is
certain to be appreciated as a
gift take a look through C. A. C.
Steward's furniture store. Hard
wood tables, dressers, chairs,
single or in sets, as well as numerous other articles, which make
home comfortable and attractive,
will be found to select from.
Mrs. Hood has in her window
a very creditable display of china-
ware and ladies' goods.
L. T. Roberg has a complete
ttock of candies, nuts, and fruits
as well as all kinds of biscuits
and Christmas cakes.
Henry Main has this year put
in the most complete stock of
toys, fancy goods, novelties,
Christmas cards, books and stationery to be found in Penticton,
and intending buyers would do
well to look through his stock.
The Red Star Grocery, one of
the lately established stores, besides its bright, fresh, supply of
groceries, biscuits, and fruits of
all kinds, carries chocolates and
Christmas stockings. The weather is cold; buy stockings���Christmas stockings.
The attractive millinery store
of Mrs. St. Onge exhibits hats
and other ladies' goods suitable
to the season.   .

J. R. Brown, government
agent, and Harry Jones, of the
Golden Gate Hotel, Fairview,
drove to Penticton on Wednesday, returning to Fairview on the
following day.
Donald A. Daly, of Napanee,
Ont., after visiting various parts
of the province, has decided to
make Penticton his home. He is
at present a guest of Mr. and
Mrs. A. E. Bennett.
Remember the general Christmas Tree in Steward's Hall on
Tuesday evening. Everybody
should be present as the youngsters are expected to give a good
account of themselves.
W. T. Shatford, manager of
the S. O. Land Co., left last Saturday for eastern Canada where
he will take a well earned rest.
During the absence of his brother
L. W. Shatford, M. P. P.. will
be acting-manager.
This week the editor inspected
the Penticton Orphans' Home.
He found the sanitation of the
institution very good, but the
general condition of the interior
certainly indicated the need of a
Matron. Strange, no applications
are received! Probably the qualifications are too stringent.
Professors C. D. Denton and
Aaron Perry, of the staff of
Okanagan College, Summerland,
paid Penticton a flying visit last
week, coming down on Friday's
boat and returning Saturday
morning. They were the guests
of Rev. R. W. Hibbert at the
parsonage for the evening.
The recent application for a
liquor license by Thos. Hudon,
of Gaylord Hotel, was refused at
the sitting of the License Commissioners in Vernon on Monday.
The B. C. Hotel also came very
near losing its license, but the
Commissioners finally decided to
place it on probation for three
months. If the place is run
properly during tbat time the
license will be renewed, otherwise cancelled.
Constable Tooth and Jas. Edmonds went over the trail to the
Carmi Mine and to Beaverdel
last Saturday, returning to Penticton Wednesday evening. They
report two feet of snow in the
mountains between here and
there. The Carmi Mine has been
shut down for the winter, and
there is not a single soul living
in the village at present. The
lack of transportation is greatly
retarding the progress of that
vicinity, which gives promise of
being a very rich mining section.
About the first of the year a
French colony will be established
at Beaverdel and they will be
engaged in cutting ties for the
C. P. R.
W. L. Douglas, of Dawson, Y.
T., spent the greater part of the
week in Penticton. While here
he purchased an eighteen acre
fruit lot on the bench about two
and a half miles from town from
the S. O. Land Co. He expects
later to come here to reside.
The residents of the bench
have recently purchased a right
of way through a lot, and have
opened a road connecting Farrell
St. and Fairview Ave. This
short piece of rocd reduces the
distance between the bench lots
and the wharf by a considerable
distance.

To the Editor of THE PENTICTON PRESS:
Having noticed your article of
a  short while  ago,   regarding
people  sending money out  of
town, I would like to have a few
lines in your paper.    Now, the
very ones who make this great
roar are the first ones to buy
anything that comes to town at
the saving of a few cents; and
business men of our town, at that,
are the first ones to patronize
outside parties.   I think if they
would use the old proverb "People  who  live  in glass houses
should never throw stones," and
look into their own dealings a
little more, they would find less
to kick about at the working-
man who sends out for something
he needs and by which he saves
a few dollars of his hard-earned
money.   If the merchants buy
for the sake of a few cents, why
shouldn't anyone be entitled to
the same privilege.
Observer.
To the Editor of The Penticton Press:
Dear Sir,-The Fifteenth Annual International Convention of
the Northwest Fruit Growers'
Association which was held in
Vancouver last week was pronounced by the visiting delegates
to be be the most successful ever
held. An Official Report of the
valuable papers and discussions
is now being prepared, and for
the benefit of those who either
failed to appreciate the importance of the event or were otherwise prevented from being
present, I may say that a.copy of
this Report will be mailed free
to all those sending in their
membership fee of $1.00 to the
undersigned, on or before the
31st inst.    Yours faithfully,
Maxwell Smith,
Sec'y for 1907.
Vancouver, B.C., Dec. 11,1907.
To tho Editor of The Penticton Press :
Dear Sir,-There is a hungry
bunch of cattle round the town-
site which are breaking people's
fences to get at feed.
There is no grass for them,
and the owners are just letting
them take their chance,��and be a
nuisance to everyone, in their
apparent ravenous condition,
though they would no doubt feel
very much agrieved if'% these
breachy cattle were put in pound.
We are not yet incorporated,
and no one, myself included, objects to their running on the
townsite in summer, when there
is plenty of feed, but I think you
will agree with me that though
the weather is open it is the
owner's business to take them in
and feed them at this time of
year, instead of allowing them
to live on what they can get by
breaking into other people's
property.
I may say that I am not the
only sufferer.
Yours faithfully,

This should serve the purpose
very well as it is centrally situated and about the size that would
be required. If a club were

should prove a very beneficial institution, there are so many men
in town who have, practically no
place in which to spend their
evenings.
PEACHLAND.
The Girls' Handicraft Club held
its bazaar the afternoon and
evening of the 10th, and it proved
a decided success. A Chinese
idea was carried out daintily in
the Tea Room, the candy counter
and toy table were well patronized, and the fancy work depart-
those who are acquainted with our pathless forests. Some Christmas Fox
Hunts, a Christmas Day spent in Marine
Zoology on the shores of the Pacific in
British Columbia, and a story of a police
patrol under great difficulties in the far
northland are all noteable articles. The
story of how an ungrateful settler met
his end in a snow blizzard on Christmas
Eve, and how a bear was defeated by
snowballs are specimens of the variety
of contents which make this number an
advance upon all that has gone before.
"Three Hours in a Bear Trap" is a vivid
piece of description of a misadventure
in the backwoods, while Indian Cooking
in Northern Canada supplies another
view of life in Canadian forests which
prove BO attractive to all students of
outdoor life. For variety and interest
this number is unsurpassed and should
be the one magazine no sportsman
means to miss. Every article is interesting and many of them of special
interest.

Stap!eton had abandoned the chase
and r- "-> b-acii to us breathing hard
and flushed witl�� 'tis exertions.
II :i, Beryl!" said he, and It
��epmcd to me that the tone of h!?
greeting was not altogether a cordial
one.
"Well, Jack, ymi are very hot."
"Yes. I was chasing a Cyclopldes. Hc-
ls very rare and seldom fo^nd In the
late autltam. What a pity that I should
have mii-s! tl him!" He spoke unconcernedly, but his small light eyes
j;!anced Incessantly from the girl to
me.
"You have inttoduced yourselves, I
can see."
"Yes. I was telling Sir Henry that
it was rather late for him to see the
true beauties of the moor."
"Why, who do you think this Is?"
"I imagine that it must be Sir Henry
Baskerville."
"Xo, no," said I. "Only a humble
commoner, but his friend. My name is
Dr. Watson."
A flush of vexation passed over her
expressive face. "We h*�� e been talking
at cross purposes," said she.
"Why, you had not very much time
for talk," her brother remarked, with
the same questioning eyes.
"I talked as if Dr. Watson were a
resident inctend of be'ng merely r
visitor," said she. "It cannot much
matter to him whether It Is early or
late for the orchids. But you will come
on, will you not, and see Merripit
Hov.se?"
A short walk brought us to It, a
bleak moorland house, once the far!"
of some grazier in the old nrosnerdu'
nays, but now put Into repair and turn
ed Into a modern dwelling. An orchard
surrounded It, but the trees, as Is usual
upon the moor, were stunted and nipped, and the effert of the whole place
was mean and melancholy. We were
admitted by a strange wizened, rusty.
coated old man servant, who seemed
In keeping with the house. Inside, however, there were large rooms furnished
with an elegance in which I seemed
to recognize the t.isite of the lady. A3
I looked from their window at the interminable granite-flecked moor rolling
unbroken to the farthest horizon I
could not but marvel at what could
have brought this highly educated man
and this beautiful woman to live In
such a place.
"Queer spot to ihoose, Is It not?"
said he, as if in f. swer to my thougnt.
"And yet we manage to make ourselves fairly happy, do we not, Beryl?"
"Quite happy," said she, but tnere
was no ring of co1 victlon In her words.

charge. The nv'-'ehnly of the moor,
the death of th" uforttinate pony, the
weird sound w' h had been associated with the pvl i legend of the Has.
kervllle3, all the^e things tinged my
thoughts with sn1.ne3S. Then on the
top of theso more or 1b~s vague impressions there had route the definite and
distinct warning of Miss atapleton. rie
Ilvered wl'h sue.'- intense earnestness
that I could not doubt that, some grave
and do"?p reason lay behind It. I resisted all pressure to stity for lynch, and I
s"t off at once upon my return jonr-
nev, taking the grass-grown path by
which we had come.
It seems, however, that there must,
bpve been some short cut for those
who knew It, for before I had reached the road I wis astounded tp see
J'iss Stapieton sitting upon a rook by
tho side of the track. Her face waR
beautifully flushed with her exertions,
anc' sV,.-. held her hand to her side,

that you were so o\rer that Sir Henry

"Xo. no. T rp���omher the thrill in

with me. Miss Stmleton, for ever since
I havp been here I h��ve been conscious
of shadows all round me. Life has be
come like that great Grlmpen Mire
with little green natches everywhere
into which one tnav sink and with !ii
guide to point the track. Tell me the-
whnt it was fat vou meant, and I will
promise to convey your warning to Sir
Henry."
An expression r' Irresolution ntiRsed
for an ins'ant ov-��r her fa^a, bat her
eyes had hardened again when she answered me.
"You n'ake too much of it, Dr. Watson," said she. ".My brother and I were
very much shocked by the death o'
Sir Charles. We knew him very intimately, for his favorite walk wa��
over the moor to our house. He was
deeply impressed with the curse which
hung over his family, and when this
tragedy came I naturally felt that then-
must be some grounds for the fears
which he had expressed. I was distressed therefore when another mem
ber of the family came down to live
here, and 1 felt that he should be warned of the dange- which he will run.
That was all which I Intended to convey."
"But what is tre danger?"
"You know the story of the hound?"
"I do not believe In such nonsense."
"But I do. If you have any influence
with Sir Henry, take him away from
a place which has always been fatal to
his family. The world Is wide. Why-
should he wish to live at the place of
danger?"
"Because It is the place of danger.
That is Sir Henry's nature. I fear that
unless you can give me some more
de'nite Information than this it would
be i npos'lnle to ��.et him to move."
"I cannot say anything definite, for I
do not know anything definite."
"I would f s!; vim one more question
Miss Stapieton. If yon meant no mo'f
than this when you first spoke to me
why sv,""'d you not wish your brothe;
to overhear what you said? There Is
nothing to which he, or anyone 'iist
could object."
"My brother is Tery anxious to have
the Hall inhabited, for he thinks that
it is for the good of the poor folk upon
the moor. He would be very angry if
he knew that I had said anything
which might induce Sir Henry to go
away. But I have done my duty now
and I will say no more. I must feet
back, or he will miss me and suspect
that I. have seen you. Good-bye!" She
turned, and had disappeared In a few
minutes among the scattered boulders,
while I, with my soul full of vacuo
fears, pursued my way to Baskerville
Hall.
CHAPTER VIII.
From this point onwards I will follow the course of events by transcribing my own let'ers to Mr. Sherlock
Holmes which lie before me on the
table. One page Is missing, but otherwise they are exactly as written, and
show my feelings and suspicions ol
the moment more accurately than mv
memory, clear as it is upon these tragic events, can possibly do.
Baskerville Hall, October 13th.
My Dear Holmes,��� My previous letters and telegrani3 have kept you
pretty well up-to-date as to all that ha3
occurred in this most God-forsaken
corner of the world. The longer onj
stays here the more does the spirit of
the moor sink Into oue's soul, its v,ist-
ness, nnd also its grim charm. When
you are once out upon its bosom you
have left all traces of modern England behind you, hut 011 the other hand
you are conscious everywhere of the 1
1)00168 and the work of thp prehistoric 1
people. On all sides of you as you walk
are the houses of these forgotten folk,
with their graves and the huge mono- I
llths which are supposed to have marked their temples. As you look at their
grey uton��t huts against the scarred
hill-sides you leave your own age oc-
hlnd you, and If you were to see a
sklnclad, hairy n an crawl out frpm
the low door, fitting a fllnHlpped ar.
row on to tho string of his bow, you
would feel that his presence there was
more natural than your own. The
strange thing is that they should huvs
lived so thickly on what must always
i.ave been most unfruitful soil. I am
no antiquarian, but I could imagine
that they ware some unwarjike and
harried race who were forced to accept that which none other would pc*
cupy.
All this, however, Is foreign to the
mission on which you sent me, and will
probably be very uninteresting to your,
severely practical m|nd. I can still ie-
member your complete Indifference as
to whether the sun moved round tho
earth or the earth round the sun. Let
me, therefore, return to the facts con-
cernlng Sir  Henry  Baskerville.
If you have not had any re.PQrl within tho last few days it is because up
to to-day there was nothing of Importance to relate. Then a very surprising
circumstance occurred, which I shall
tell you In due course. But, first of all,
I must keep you In touch with some of
the other factors In the situation.

and the brother, the latter not a very
strong man. They would be helpless
in the hands of a desperate follow like
this Notting Hill criminal, if he could
once effect an entrance. Both Sir
Henry and I were concerned at their
situation, and it was suggested that

next morning he took us both to show
us the spot whore the legend of the
wicked Hugo is supposed to have had
Its origin. It was an excursion of some
miles across the moor to a place which
is so dismal that it might have suggested the story. We found a short
valley between rugged tors which led
to an opan, grassy space flecked over
with the white cotton grass. In the
middle of it rose two great stones,
worn and sharpened at the uppor end,
unt.il they looked like the huge corroding fangs of some monstrous beast.
In every way It corresponded with (be
sceno of the old tragedy. Sir Henry
was much interested, and asked Staple-
ton more than once whether he did
really 'believe in the possibility of tho
Interference of the supernatural In the
affalra of men. He spoke lightly, but
it was evident that he was very nin:'h
in earnest. Stapieton w��is guarded in
his replies, but it was easy to see that
he said less than he might, and Hint
he would not express his whole opinion out of consideration for the feelings of the baronet. He told us nf

HISTORICAL CORNER.
Execution of Marie Antoinette,
wife of Louis XVI. of France.
The queen, after having written and prayed, passed a few
hours in peaceful sleep. On awakening, Madame Bault's daughter
dressed her with more than ordinary care. Marie Antoinette
laid aside the black dress she had -
been wearing since her husband's
death, and put on a white gown
as an emblem of her earthly innocence and her anticipated heavenly joy. A while neckerchief
covered her shoulders, a white
cap, her hair. A black ribbon,
which pressed this cap on her
temples, was the only article of
dress which reminded the world
of her mourning, herself of her
widowhood, and the French people of her forced sacrifice.
The windows and sidewalks,
the roofs and trees were crowded with spectators. A group of
women, stirred up against "The
Austrian" (as the queen was
called), crowded around the railings and even into the courtyards.
A pale, cold, autumn fog was
hovering over the Seine, and
here and there gleams of sunshine were struggling through
the mist upon the roofs of the
Louvre and the tower of the Palace.
At 11 o'clock the soldiers and
executioners entered the condemned cell. The queen embraced the prison keeper's daughter, then cutting off her own hair
with her own hands she submissively allowed herself to be bound,
and walked out of prison with a
firm step. She betrayed no feminine weakness, no faint-heart-
edness, no bodily nervousness, no
paleness of features. Nature
was under the control of her will
and gave her strength to die as
a queen. On emerging from the
stairs into the yard she perceived
the common convict cart toward?
which the soldiers directed her
steps. She stopped as if about
to retrace her steps, and made a
sign of astonishment and horror.
She had hoped that the people
would at least clothe their hatred
in a mantle of decency, and that
she would be led to the scaffold,
as the king (her husband) had
been, in a closed carriage. She,
however, suppressed her indignation and mounted the vile vehicle. The abbot of Lothringer
placed himself behind her in spite
of her protests. The procession
started on its way from the prison amid the cries of "Long live
the Republic," "Away with the
Austrian," and "Down with tyranny."
When they came to the Revolution Square the leaders of the
procession brought the cart as
near as possible to the Pont-Tour-
nant (bridge) and stopped it for
a moment at the entrance of the
garden of the palace. The queen
turned her head towards her former palace and for a few minute:-,
looked at that hateful scene of
her greatness and her fall. Tears
were seen rolling down her
cheeks on to her knees. All her
past loomed up before in the hour
of death. A few more paces and
they reach the place of execution.
The pries! and the executioner
helped her In alight from the
cart. She mounted with dignity
and grace the steps of the scaffold. On reaching the top she inadvertantly stepped on the bout
of the executioner who uttered a
cry of pain. "Pardon me," said
she to the man in that sweet tone
of voice in which she was wont
to speak to one of her courtiers.
She knelt down for a moment

a large number of guests were
present, was served in Steward's
Hall.
