To all lovers of the best in
drama it will indeed be a welcome
announcement which has just
been made by Manager Steward
to the effect that Mr. C. F.
Walker, of Winnipeg will send
his elaborate production of "As
You Like It," the most delightful of all of Shakespeare's comedies, to Penticton, B. C. The
company presenting the play is
composed almost entirely of English Players and a really intellectual and finished performance is
assured. Mr. Walker has had
two sets of scenery constructed
for the play, one to be used in
such theatres as his own beautiful Walker in Winnipeg, and the
the other, an exact reproduction
of the larger set to be used on
the smaller stages, so that we
can be assured of a perfect scenic
equipment. The costumes are
new and rich and add greatly to
the beauty of the performance.
William Yule, a comedian well
known to the theatre-goers of
the West has been especially engaged for the role of "Touchstone," apart in which he has
no superior among the comedians
of to-day.
As the world views the
struggles of the modern poet and
playwright, it is forced to stand
in breathless awe before the memory of William Shakespeare,
the inspired genius, whose equal
will never Iip known. In onp play,
'As You Like It," Lhe student
may find a quotation suitable to
almost any occasion and couched
in such beautiful terms that it
rolls from the tongue like the
ripple of a moonbeam.
Not only does this comedy
appear to the literary minded,
but as a comedy it interests the
lover of the humorous and its
story holds the attention of those
desiring dramatic situations and
suspense. "As You Like It" is
a play for the student; a play
for the philosopher and the
amusement seeker. It pleases
the ear of the poet and delights
the eye of the artist. It is the
nearest play to the ideal in drama
that ever was constructed.
Mr, Walker can assure the
people of Penticton a real treat
in this company, there will be a
full cast, and no part of the show
will be cut down. Mr. Walker is
playing them under a large expense, and hopes that the public
will show their appreciation by
turning out. The company is
booked for Friday Dec. 10th '09.

BARGAIN TABLE
Certain lines of goods are to be eliminated from our

HARDWARE
In order to hasten the process of elimination a bargain table
has been instituted.   All the articles put
on this table are real bargains,
as in nearly every instance the price is cut in two and is be-
sold at a loss. Come in from time to time and see what you
can pick up.

Test Your Well Water.
Colonel Traeey, of Traeey &
i Kilmer, consulting engineers, of
I Vancouver, when in town recently investigating the sources of
supply with a view to the installation of a domestic water system
by the Municipal Council, advised
the testing, by the citizens, of
water obtained in Penticton.
The test is very simple: Purchase five or ten cents' worth of
permanganate of potash at the
druggist's and dissolve two or
three grains, enough to give a
pink color, in about three ounces
of water. Let stand in the sun,
and at the end of twenty-four
hours if the water becomes clear
the test shows impurities; if no
change occurs the water is all
right and fit for use.
Note���Since setting up the
foregoing. We have consulted
one of our local physicians and
he says the test is a very poor
one except in case of very foul
water.

As far as can be gathered from
the reports to hand it is very
evident that the Local Option
plebiscite did not carry in the
province.
The Municipal Court of Revision was held on Monday. The
Reeve, A. H. Wade, J. P., assisted by Councillors. Power and
Barnes, were the adjusting committee.
The annual Tennis Club ball is
reported to have been an unqualified success, although it was

just to keep his memory green.
Electors in the various wards

in municipal elections as well as
provincial is the thing that
counts.
The monthly meeting of the
Farmers Institute will be held
this evening in the Council Chamber. All members should be present to hear I. M. Steven's paper

found it."
Thos. Bradshaw, of Fifteen-
Mile, came in on Wednesday's
stage. Mr. Bradshaw has not
been in Penticton for over four
years and remarked on the great
changes and improvements since
he was here last.
The Presbyterian Ladies' Aid
will hold their annual sale of work

bread, all kinds of bread-stuffs,
pickles, fruit etc. etc. O, Bachelors what a snap! Tea will be
served during the afternoon and
I evening.
L. W. Shatford is back fror.i
the Similkameen and looks pretty
fit in spite of his month's campaigning. Mr. Shatford is very
gratified with results in his rid-
in?. The Press tenders congratulations to both members on their
large majorities.
Died���At Penticton, on November 30, Mrs. Catherine Grant,
aged 75 years. Rev. W. J. Allen
conducted the funeral service,
which was held at her late residence, on the 1st inst., a number
of friends and relatives being
present. The remains were interred on the bench.
The Press has put in a well-
selected stock of stationery, such
as letter paper in tablets, paper
and envelopes in boxes, school
supplies, note books, etc. Call
and inspect and get our prices.   ���
At the Methodist church on
Sunday evening last an announc-
was read out that the Anniversary Services of that church
would be held on Sunday Dec.
12th, at which Rev. R. J. Mclntyre, of Summerland would
preach, and on Monday following a chicken supper would be
given.
The Rev. A. E. Cowley, of
Winnipeg, brother of Miss Beatrice Cowley, of Penticton, has
been visiting here for the last
couple of weeks, and left for the
coast cities on Thursday morning.
He occupied' the pulpit of St.
Saviour's church on two occasions
while here, and his sermons were
greatly appreciated.
Walter Gillespie gave u "Moving Picture Show" in Steward's
Hall on Saturday evening. The
Hall was anything but crowded,
possibly owing to the very short
notice given the public. Mr.
Gillespie gave a very good entertainment and as he is able to
"produce the goods" he will undoubtedly have a larger audience
next time he comes this way.
Bar-tenders at the coast have
to be licensed. It would be a
good thing if the Government
passed a law making it compulsory that the vendors of liquor
throughout the whole province
take out licenses. This would
stop an irresponsible fellow being
employed behind the bar, and a
bartender once convicted of
transgressing the liquor laws
would lose his license. The
hotel proprietor would have to
employ reputable men and the
public would be better served.
The steamer Okanagan failed
to make connections here on Saturday. Owing to the severe
storm on the lake it was found
impossible to call at Peachland,
so the Captain tied the boat up
for the night between that place
and Summerland. Some of the
passengers, who were booked for
the above mentioned points, got
off and walked to their destination. The elements having eased
down a little the Okanagan came
in on Sunday, looking a little
battered. Nautical men and old
timers say it was the worst storm
in their recollection.
Our readers will bear in
mind that "As you like it" is
billed to appear in Steward's Hall
on Dec. 10th, not Dec. 11th as
per circulars distributed from
headquarters, Winnipeg. This
delightful comedy is presented
by a responsible management, C.
P. Walker, and the caste, numbering fourteen, and scenery will
be the same as at Walker's
theatre, Winnipeg, with this exception, that the scenery will be
reduced in size; all details will be
the same. This will afford the
people of Penticton an opportunity of seeing one of Shakespeare's best comedies as it is
played on the boards of a city
theatre.
Literary Society.
At the meeting of the Literary
Society on Thursday evening the
sabjectjof debate was: "Resolved
that the creation of a Canadian
navy is unwarranted at the present time." Mr. E. W. Match
took the affirmative and Messrs.
W. H. T. Gahan and Stanley
Evans the negative.
Mr. Mutch argued that a navy
placed the country on the offensive and conduced toward bloodshed. No nation in these times
wanted that It was heathenish
and barbarism. The people of
Canada were progressive and
civilized and long past the stage
of barbaricm. Americans would
not stand by and see this country invaded by other nations nor
would the European Powers be
idle in case nations like Japan or
China attempted to invade Car-
ada.
Messrs. Gahan and Evans in
their turn contended that a navy
was necessary, to protect our immense coast and boundary line.
Our great mineral wealth and
other natural resources were an
attraction to other nations, and a
navy would co-operate with our
land forces to repel invaders.
The peace of the world could
only be ensured by tho supremacy of Britan, as "Mistress of
the seas," being maintained.
Her power on the seas was hourly threatened by ambitious nations such as Germany.
The judges, Messrs. Creighton.
Agnew, and Guest gave tluir
decision in favor of the, negative,
by a vote of two to one,
Rev. W. J. Allen very ably filled position of critic.
Mr. Macdonald, Str. Okanogan,
gave a very acceptable song dui-
ing one of the intervals between
speeches.
The programme for the next
meeting will be a mock trial on
Thursday evening Dec. IC.
COMMUNICATIONS
I ,       * ���    M
(We do not hold ourselves responsible for tb*
opinions of correspondents.)
To the Editor of The Pbnticton Press :
Dear Sir:-We the undersigned
crave space in your paper to. vent
a grievance caused by the action
of the Council in riding, roughshod over the wishes of fruit
growers living on the bench by
establishing a cemetery right in
our midst on Lot 69; this in spite
of the fact that almost every
person living there signed a petition against making a burial
ground of this lot. We have
been advised that T. B. Stark
has purchased this property and
is holding it until such time as
the Council can afford to take it
over. As the present Council's
term is drawing to a close and
as they have not been able to
get enough signatures to pass
their proposed money-borrowing
by-law, it will therefore be impossible for them to do anything
in the matter. We would" suggest to our neighbors oh the
bench that when nominating
Councillors they only, nominate
men who will select a. cemetery
site that will riot be aV eyesore
to their fellows. By doing this
we shall be able to get even witli
the Reeve who may think he has
been rather diplomatic in having
this property purchased in Mr.
Stark's name, but knowing the
latter gentleman fairly well we
fail to see why he should lend
money to the Council without
getting any returns^ Perhais
Mr. Wade can expjain this in
your next issue.
Thanking you for the publication of this protest, >life arc,
Yours for the future welfare
of Penticton,
E. J. L. Smith.

Dream of a   Future Penticton.
I was sitting in a comfortable
Morris chair in front of a good
fire, reading Professor Craig's re-
port'of his trip through the Okanagan.   Just prior to this I had I
read two articles in the "Review
of Reviews," one on aeroplanes!
and the other dealing with the |
latest   railway   invention ��� the
mono-rail.
I must h: v 3 fallen asleep ar d
d ?amed, and this is my dream:
It was October in the year
1920, I stood in Penticton aga'n
after an absence of ten years.
I had just arrived with other
passengers on the mid-day train
and following a smartly uniformed hotel porter, I presently found
myself outside a large three
storied building built of stone
and brick standing on its own
grounds comprising lawns and
gardens. Entering the office I
Was about to register my name
when a young fellow came along
and introduced himself as the
secretary of the Penticton Tourist Association. He explained
that it was part of his duty to
show strangers round the city
and district. "But," said I "I
am not a stranger, I lived here
ten years' ago." My young
friend laughed and said there
had been such a lot of changes
that I would never recognize the
place. "Tell me," I said, "what
you call this splendid hotel, which
I see is built on the site of the
old Penticton?" "Oh, we still
call it the 'Hotel Penticton.' The
o I place was pulled dov n soon nfter the ra.lw ys came in and tl. s
j was built by a syndicate. Ihe
same company have built two
[ more, but those are family houses
and there is a great run on them
(during the summer months."
Leaving the hotel my guide took
me first to the Railway depot,
i explaining that it was called the
j Union Station, being used by the
C. P. R. the C. N. R. and the V.
V. &E. "Tell me sir," I asked,
"how can three railways pay in
a small place like Penticton?"
'My guide laughed. "Small!"
[said he, "You wait till I have
shown you round." "Well tell me !
something about these railways.
When I left here ten years ago
the Kettle Valley line was only
just starting."
"The Kettle Valley?" exclaimed my guide, "Oh. I know. You
mean what is now called the
short route of the Canadian Pacific, only tourists are taken round
on the old line now
"But you have asked metottil
you something about these railways, So I'll take the C. P. R.
first, this being the first line in
Penticton. This line is now the
the shortest route from Southern
Alberta to the coast. It runs
three passenger trains daily. It
also conveys our fruit to the
southern portion of the Prairie
Provinces.

was the Canadian Northern and at
present Penticton is the terminus
ahhough I expect they will build
further south later on. The Canadian Northern has brought us
in touch with a great market fer
our fruit and thousands of tons
are being shipped by it this
year.''
"Where is all the fruit graded
and packed?" I had hardly asked
the question when I was ushered
into a large warehouse alongside
the railway. "This is Boxem's,
Limited," said my guide and is
one of the three big packing es-
'ablishments in Penticton." On-
all sides I saw tier after tier of
boxes containing apples. In the
'.���entre of the establishment were
several trucks being loaded.
Just as we were leaving the
packing astablishment a line of
cars passed us and I noticed that
they were part of a mono-rail
system. My curiosity being
aroused I asked about this, and
was informed that the municipality run a mono-railway of their
own in conjunction their electric
light and power plant, and it is a
very paying concern. At this
time of the year the fruit is
put on these mono-rail cars by
the growers and brought in to
the packing sheds.
We next visited the two large
canning and pickle factories both
giving employment to a large
number of .men and women. Almost directly opposite were two
box factories each turning out
seventy thousand boxes per
month. These factories, my young
friend informed me, had to keep
running the year round to supply
the demand. "You must have
quite' a large population now," I
remarked. "Oh, I guess about
eight thousand, and new people .
coming in every day, most of
them with money too. Now you
had better let me show you some
other part of the town. The
best thing we can do is to go
round the business section on the
mono-car. Jumping on b6ard the
first one going in the desired direction we were whirled through
several splendid streets with-
brick and stone business blocks
on each side. On the outskirts of the city we passed the
Drill hall, which, my guide informed me, cost forty thousand,
dollars, was the headquarters of
a Mounted Infantry Corps and
the Civilian Rifle Association..
A ltttle farther on we came to
the Athletic and Agricultural
show grounds, comprising about
fifty acres. My attention being
drawn to a very long and low
sort of a building on the sports
ground, I naturally asked what
it was for and my informant
explained that it was the Aero-;
plane Shed. ' 'Have you an Aero
Club here, then?" I asked, beginning to be surprised at
nothing I saw or heard. "Oh
yes, we have a membership of a-
bout twenty and each member
has either a mono-plane or a biplane. Lets get off here and I'll
take you over to the Club house
where you may meet some old
timer you knew years ago."
But just at this point I heard a
bell clanging and a voice saying
"Wake up there, the dinner
boll's gone. Lets go in and
feed." And so I awoke. I have
been wondering since, was it a
I dream or a forecast.   J. W. E.

Dear Sir;���Permit me to ask
through the columns of your

the Reeve and Councillors are
allowing our streets and our sidewalks to be disgraced by the filth

there is no question in the mind of nny
man. woman or child who reads these
words of the cold blooded nature of tlie
crime. The slayer, who had formerly
made a murderous attack upon his victim, lately quarreled Willi Iiiui and uttered threats, as we have stated, upon
his life. The dead man came to him
with protestations of friendship and
was struck down a'corpse.

was found iu the room. The weapon
with which the--deed was accomplished

"Hid it strike ye now." Mr. Slieehan
asked earnestly, leaning forward in
his chair "did it strike ye that, the
Tocsin was aimiu' more to do Happy
harm because of you than himself?"
"Yes." Joe looked sadly out of the
window. "I've thought that over, and
il seemed possible that I might do
Happy more good by '.dying his ease to
some other lawyer."
"No. sir!" exclaimed tbe proprietor
of Hen ver Bench loudly. "They've begun their attack, they're humid to. keep

Tocsin attacked ye in a way that was
somehow vi'lenter than ever before."
"Yes." replied Joe. "because it was
aimed lo strike where it would most

excitedly-"it ain't only that! I want

.iaa always been our belief that'll WM MltOI to

vas damaged la��l winter in the IroM we had oul
al that time;
Wc have only nbout GO trees that arc liearior
and they are only 4 years planted, but they are all
true to name. We have never had any fear but
that Stone & Wellington would lie above suspicion
or we would not plant their trees lo the extent we
