fred   C.   Layton   Shot   in   Cold
Blood by J. Anderson.
One of the most brutal murders
that has ever startled the residents of the district occurred
near Vernon early Thursday
morning, the 13th inst., when
John Anderson, of Pleasant Valley road,shot and instantly killed
F. E. Layton, of Maple street.
Anderson fired some fourteen
shots from a 30-30 rifle and a revolver at J. R. Brown, but the
latter escaped with only a slight
graze over the abdomen at the
left side of his body. A fter committing the terrible crime Anderson walked down town and
surrendered himself into the
hands of the police. Layton was
shot in the left side of the neck
and the bullet after dividing the
spinal cord touched the brain
and made its exit through the
centre of the right cheek. He
was about forty feet distant from
Anderson and never stirred after
hs fell, his death being instantaneous. He leaves a wife and
three children, all girls, the
eldest between 16 and 17 years
of age. Anderson has a family
| of 11 children, several of whom
have readied adult age.
The story of the murder detailed at the coroner's inquest,
which was held in the city hall
on Thursday at 5 o'clock, showed
the trouble to have arisen from
the laying of an irrigation pipe
across property of which Anderson was a tenant. A record for
the water to be obtained had
previously applied to the Anderson property, but had expired
and the water was not being
used. J. R. Brown had obtained
a record and had given Anderson
legal notice regarding carrying
the water across his place. His
intention was to lay a box drain
underground. Anderson offered
no objection at the time and even
consented, at Mr. Brown's request, to put in the drain. He
afterwards, however, changed
his mind, and later when Mr.
Brown and son, F, E. Layton
and Mr. Postill began the work,
ordered them to stop. Next
morning Mr. Layton was the
first on the ground and informed
the others when they came that
Anderson had ordered him off
the property. No attention was
paid to the order and the men
went on working. Anderson
thereupon fired upon the men
from a stable door. The shot
grazed Mr. Brown's side, who,
seeing that the rifle was aimed
at him again, dropped. Anderson then shot Mr. Layton, after
which he followed and fired a
number of shots at Mr. Brown
who at last succeeded in taking
refuge at Mr. Hull's place, the
last bullet fired passing over Mr.
Hall's little boy's head.
Anderson then went to Vernon
and gave himself up. At the
hearing on Friday the prisoner
refused to make a statement.
He was accordingly sent up by
Police Magistrate McGowen, for
hearing before the next court of
competent jurisdiction.
Peachland, Naramata and Summerland had been taken in or:
route, the party arriving in Penticton about 4 p. m.
Every available conveyance at
the livery stables had been engaged and the entire party,
directly upon their arrival, were
taken for a three hours' drive
among the orchards and other
pleasant sights. The object of
the delegates was to study the
irrigation systems and no better
opportunity could be afforded for
the purpose than at Penticton,
where both bench land and bottom, rough and smooth have so
successfully been made to respond to the magic touch of
water. The party visited, among
other things, the company's dam
and headgate on Penticton
Creek, from which point the
water is obtained for the irrigation of the entire bench lands.
Returning to town about seven j
o'clock the company found a
most elegant repast spread by
the ladies of Penticton on tables
in the grove at the lakeshore
awaiting them. After doing
justice to the bountiful supply of
tea, coffee, cake, sandwiches and
turkey, among the beautiful
trees, further beautified by bunting and Chinese lanterns, the
party spent a most pleasant evening prior to embarking upon the
steamer which was to leave at 11
p. m. on the return trip.
Before dispersing, Mr. Rowley,
of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, Calgary, made a short
speech expressing the thanks of
the delegates to the ladies and
citizens of Penticton for the
royal reception they had been
given. This was followed by a
series of cheers and a tiger from
the entire company, which made
the woods ring. Mr. VV. T. Shat
ford responded for the citizens,
thanking the delegates for their
expressions of appreciation, and
voicing the pleasure it had afforded the people of Penticton
to entertain such a body of representative men.
Two resolutions passed by the
convention while in session at
Vernon, one bearing upon forest
preservation, and the other requesting the provincial government to enact a new law regards
ing irrigation and water records,
have a marked bearing upon the
fruit industry in British Columbia, the former from the fact
that forests conserve the moisture, and the latter on account of
the present indefiniteness of the

Sad Bereavement.
Seldom have the hearts of this

depths of sympathy and sorrow
as has been the case durirg the
past week when the An^el of

and precious treasures.
On Thursday, the 13th inst.,
little baby Shatford, Florence

Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Shatford,

of only a few days. The sickness was of a kind prevalent

The visit of the irrigation delegates to Penticton last week was
a most successful event. Although there were not as many
present as had formerly been expected, owing partly to the elections taking place in Saskatchewan and partly to the C. P. R.
strike, which necessitated the
immediate return of a number of
delegates from Vernon, there
were about one hundred, including contingents from the various
lake points, to make the trip

Four hours on horseback over
a mountain trail brings the rider
to the reservoir being constructed by the S. 0. Land Co. at the
head of Ellis Creek. An ascent
of some twenty-five hundred feet
is made in the fifteen miles which
intervene between Penticton and
the point of destination, but by
far the greater portion of the
ascent is embraced between
points two and five miles from
The trail leads through an exceedingly parklike country, timbered on the lower elevations by
bull pine and on the higher by
jack pine and tamarack. About
three miles from town, the saw
and lath mill of the Penticton
Lumber Syndicate is passed.
This firm owns  immense  tracts

Game is abundant. Blue grouse
and ruffed grouse were seen all
along the trail, and while no deer
were met with, their tracks
were numerous, and the tracks
of a bear were plainly discern-'
able at one point on the return '
trip, bruin having passed along
since the trip up. There are
three beaver dams in the basin
embraced by the company's
reservoir and the beaver are
actively at work. However, the
inhabitants will have to seek
higher quarters when the company's dam is closed, as the

called for a vast outlay of money
; but their success has well  justified their conviction.
To-day they stand the acknowledged leaders in this branch of
never ceasing flow, the water
being conserved in a tank at the
bottom. A pointer might be
derived from this when it is contemplated to put in a domestic
water supply for the town. The
Lumber Syndicate intend later
to add a wood pipe factory to
their establishment, the timber

of Ellis Creek are crossed and
it is surprising how the water

Boss Dorseu
And the Babies.
Giiiyrighl  b\)  Edwin J.   Wcbtter
B~*~"lROWN-EYED Johnnie O'Neil,
better known to his family and
immediate friends as the "fat
I baby," had wandered to the
long avenue skirting the river front.
Harry Wendell, a young lawyer who
was rapidly becoming prominent in
politics, was hurrying to the meeting
of the City Reform club. He did not
notice the perspiring toddler aud almost ran into him. The fat baby made
a frantic effort to dodge, collided with
���mother pedestrian and fell to the sidewalk. It was not a hind fall, but the
fat baby's ordinary optimism bad been
undermined by the weather. Instead
of scrambling to his feet he lay on the
pavement and sobbed in helpless misery.
Harry Wendell picked up tbe small
sufferer and handed him a carnation
be had been wearing. As the babe's
feelings changed from sorrow to wonder and theu to delight his sobs grew
"Sure, and these hot days are hard
on the babies, with never a breeze stirring except along the river and the
trucks and wagons keeping them away
from there."
Harry Wendell looked around and
saw Tom McManuis, the ward leader
and one of the strongest supporters of
Richard Dorsey, the boss whom the
City Reform club was working hard to
"It's a pity they can't get a recreation pier for this district," observed
Harry, looking at the river front,
which had been the cwveted Canaan
of the fat baby. "It would be a wonderful comfort for the children as well
as for older people."
"It would that," assented McMannis.
"I was telling Dorsey the same only
yesterday. But he didn't seem to look
at it that way."
And McMannis, after giving the
now cheered fat baby some pennies
and telling him to "run and get a bit
of candy," strolled into the saloou
which was his political headquarters,
while Wendell hastened up the street
On his way to the meeting Harry
Wendell's thoughts reverted to the
ward leader from whom he had just
parted. McMannis was uneducated,
unprincipled in both public and personal life, a machine politician of the
worst type���and not a bit ashamed of
the fact. Vet McMannis was the absolute ruler of the crowded Tenth
However corrupt local politics might
be, the fact must be faced that the organization, led by Dorsey, was strong,
well disciplined and could put up a
hard fight And, while it would be for
their own good, the big foreign element and the poorer classes generally
did not care for reform. Again and
again the City Reform club had led
campaigns against the machine and
each time either had been defeated at
the polls or after what seemed victory
found that Dorsey had again worked
his way back into power, aided by the
indifference of the good citizens who
had voted for reform. But if a break
could be made iu the machine ranks, If
McMannis, whoso sway In his own
ward was ludisputed, could be arrayed agaiust the boss, then iudeed something might be effected. And as he
pondered the matter Harry Wendell
saw through a glass darkly a plan
whereby a break might possibly be
made in tbe compact forces of the machine.
"It's playing machine politics on my
own account." he soliloquized, "but
McMannis is a good deal better man
at heart than Dorsey. and a recreation
pier would be a gool thing for the
babies iu those big 'tenth ward tenements, however it is obtained."
The next day while Tom McMannis,
seated In a little room back of his bar,
was talking over the details of tho
coming campaign with a few of his
favored henchmen a bartender entered
and iu the confidential whisper assumed by all practical politicians and
their followers announced that Harry*
Wendell would llko to speak to tho
ward leader. McMannis nodded to his
retainers, who filed out of the room.
When Harry entered, McMannis looked
at him with complacent hostility.
"1 was at tbe meeting of tbe City
Reform club yesterday," began Harry.
"I heard there was to be one." murmured McManuis, "but I couldn't get
tbe time to go."
McMannis and Wendell, while political opponents, were personally friendly enough.   The young lawyer laughed.
"I have been thinking of what you
snld yesterday afternoon about a recreation pier. It would be a godsend to
the babies this hot weather. Now,
can't we combine on this point even If
we fight each other on other matters?"
The leader of the Tenth ward leaned
back In his chair, bis hands in bis
pockets, and looked hard at Wendell.
For reformers in general McMannis
had a deep rooted dislike. But tho
recreation pier for his ward had been
one of McMannis' heartfelt desires for
the last two years.
"What you say Is right." replied McMannis after a moment's thought "I
certainly do want the pier. and. what
is more important, so do my people,
but I didn't expect help from the City
Reform club."
"It isn't necessarily a political matter." answered Harry, "and perhaps If
both crowds combined we could force
the hoard of aldermen to appropriate
the money."
"We could." assented McMannis.
"and mighty glad would I lie to see
the pier here whether the reformers or
1 the devil himself helped me to get it.
I've been alter Dorsey about it. hut he
says the city needs the money for
something else. It makes me angry to
think." added McManuis naively, "that
just because I've got the Tenth ward
so tbat it is sale they insist all the
money ought to be spent in other
, wards. It's coining election time,
though, ami Dorsey won't want to
, make any enemies."
���It's worth trying anyhow." answer-
i ed   Harry.     "I'll   hustle   around   and
bring all the pressure on the part of
the people 1 know to bear on him."
"If the other reformers wore like that
I Doy," declared .McManuis impressively
to oue of his  lieutenants,  "it's more
they would do in this world."
A week later Richard Dorsey, the
head of the organization, the recognized ruler of city politics, was silting
in his private office, a frown ou his
face. For days the Express, the reform mouthpiece, had been printing
stories about the sufferings of the
children on the crowded east side during tbe hot weather and Insisting that
a recreation pier was more needed
than the new pavements hi the outside
districts, But Dorsey aud several of
his political adherents were financially
interested in the paving contracts.
"Stirring up all this trouble about a
lot of babies and women who don't
vote." thotlght the boss angrily. "Why
can't people mind their own business?''
And just then Tom McMannis was announced.
McMannis had called to talk over the
political situation In the Tenth ward.
As usual, this ward, the largest in the
city in point of population, was solidly
for the machine. Dorsey's face brightened up at the first part of his lieuteu-
ant's discourse. Then it clouded when
McMannis said positively:
"But It seems to me that we ought
to have that recreation pier anyway.
This hot weather is mighty hard on
the people."
"What can I do?" replied Dorsey Impatiently. "If the city appropriates
money for the pier it will run over the
debt limit. You know the people at
Albany, and the reformers are just
looking to catch us up on that very
"You might let some of those new
pavements go or have them put iu for
half what it Is going to cost," answered McMannis bluntly.
Dorsey looked disgusted.
"What's tbe use of talking that
way?" he grumbled. "You know
where the money for that deal Is going. A man has to live, and bo must
his friends. Seems to me that I didn't
hear any howl from you when we put
down the east side sewer. And you
know what that cost nnd who got the
money. Most of it went right over to
the Tenth ward."
This unvarnished statement of city
finances was somewhat of a facer for
"Well, as long ns every one was getting a bit of the coin I didn't see wiry
1 shouldn't myself. But it's the truth
I would give up my share to get that
pier. Sure, if you lived iu the ward
and saw the hot kids and the tired women you would feel the same way
about it."
"Maybe we can do something about
It next year." replied Dorsey. "but just
now it's up to you to do some hard
work for the organization before election. You're not going to let this turn
you against the party, are you?"
"Of course not." answered McMannis
almost Indignantly. "You ought to
kuow better than that. It will be
many a long day from now before Tom
McMannis votes against the party.
But I th!::!-' it Is a shame about the
pier." he added obstinately as be left
the room.
Dorsey had not recovered from the
annoyance caused by the discussion of
the recreation pier when Rev. Alfred
Mann was ushered into the office.    If
"Sure, and tinne tint dnys nre hnrd on
tlie tiiitnen."
there wns any person in the city for
whom Richard Dorsey bad a cordial
dislike, It was Mr Mann. The feeling
was reciprocated. While well meaning. Mr Munn was far fi'oni tactful,
His advocacy of the claims of the east
side children In the matter of a recreation pier was such as to leave the political boss In n hut perspiration of
rage, lu the end. with stronger Ian
gunge than was due die sanctity of the
cloth. Dorsey requested the clergyman
lo li' ivi' Ihe room and added Unit no
body hut meddling fools wanted the
pier. Neither Mr. Munn nor [toss Dor
soy   appreciated   that   Harry   Wendell
' had foreseen the interview would prob-
j ably end this way.
Following   Rev.   Mr.   Mann   several
i business and professional men promi-
j aeut  in  the community,  but declared
j opponents of Dorsey. called on tbe po-
| litical leader and advocated the claims
j of tlie Tenth warders to the recreation
! pier.    The result of these  maneuvers
was that the generally silent aud self
| contained   boss    was   exasperated   to
! such a pitch of irritation that a meu-
I tiou   of   the   recreation   pier   had   the
soothing'effect upon him that the wav-
I ing of a red flag has upon a bull.  Then
Harry Wendell himself was shown into the boss'  private office,  and  with
; Wendell, unobtrusive, but keenly alert
to every detail, came Jack  Whitney,
one of the reporters for the Express.
"1 came to see you about tbe recreation pier that seems so much needed
In the Tenth ward," began Harry
suavely.   "I think"���
But the patience of the exasperated
boss at last gave way.
"Y'ou think!" he thundered.    "Well.
I think there has been too much fuss
i made  about  that   pier.    It  won't  be
built.    The babies need It!    D   n the
babies anyway!   They can't vote!"
"All right." replied Harry cheerfully. "If that's the way you feel nbout
It, there's nn need of saying any more."
Accompnnied by the reporter, be hurried out of the office, for he had obtained exactly tho statement he wanted. Any modification of it would only
weaken his position.
The Express was one of the bitterest
opponents of the rule of Dorsey. In
the hall Jack Whitney looked gleefully at Harry Wendell.
" 'D���n the babies! They can't
vote!'" murmured the newspaper man.
"What a headline! Oh, but in a lit-
t*e while Mr. Dorsey will be sorry ne
spoke that way. The Express will
have an extra on the street in half an
hour. Won't that 'D-n the babies!'
please the Teuth ward, where there
are about a hundred to each tenement?"
"That's all right as far as it goes,"
replied Wendell, "but we want to put
Dorsey in a position where he can't
deny having said it. I'll draw up an
affidavit corroborating it. Then we
can get affidavits from Mr. Manu aud
others who talked with Dorsey this
I morning. If the Express will publish
these, it will make our case stronger."
"If the Kxpress will publish them,"
answered tlie newspaper man. "If I
know how Mr. Rogers feels about Dorsey, I think they will be double leaded, with three column headlines. You
get tlie affidavits, and I'll hurry back
to tlie office and be writing the story."
"We'll get out nn extra," said the
managing editor to Whitney, "but we
might as well wait and get the affidavits, too, so as to have a complete
story. You were the only reporter
present? Then none of the other papers can come out ahead of us."
"And I'll send a man over to see McMannis," broke In the city editor.
"Jones, run down to McMannis' place
and ask him if Dorsey Is going to do
anything about the recreation pier.
Dou't tell him we have other interviews on the subject. Just get him to
state, If you cau. iu the strongest terms
possible that Dorsey says they can't
have tbe pier. Telephone In what he
says, for we want it for an extra."
By tlie time Whitney had finished
writing his account of the Dorsey interview tbe affidavits had arrived at
the Express office, aud Jones had telephoned iu the interview with McMannis. That worthy, Ignorant of the
stops which were being taken to disturb Mr. Dorsey's peace of mind, had
spoken in strenuous terms. Not that
McMannis hud any Intention of breaking from the organization, but bis
heart had been set on getting the recreation pier, and he hnd brooded over
the refusal of the morning. The city
editor read the account that Whitney
had written and after marking it "double lead" sent it to the composing room.
"It looks sensational," observed tho
city editor, "but It Is a big story. I
guess when the copies of tlie paper begin to come into the Tenth ward there
really will be a sensation."
A few minutes later tbe newsboys
were calling out;
"Extra! Extra! All about Boss Dorsey an' do babies!"
"Better send n lot of copies over to
the Tenth ward." said the managing
editor. "I wouldn't wonder If they
would Interest McMannis."
And the paper did Interest McMannis. He was sitting In his little bach
room when Tim Collins, his . most
trusted lieutenant, entered. Tim was
"Have yon seen the Express?" he
cried, thrusting a copy of the paper at
McMannis. "Why. Dorsey must have
t)een crazy to say such a thing And I
see you are quoted there too. Are you
going to break-from the party?"
"What do you mean?" retorted McMannis angrily. "What's Dorsey been
saying, and what rot are you talking
about my breaking with the party?"
There'll be something else broken If
you dou't take that hack."
But Tim Collins stood und." in ed,
"Look for yourself." he replied. "It's
nil over the ward The women are wild
about It. I'd have thought il a fake
put up by the reformers If It hadn't
been for your name and those affidavits. Dorsey's killed himself In this
McMannis was eagerly scanning the

"luless what?" inquired McManuis
"Unless we break away from him,"
answered Collins sullenly.
"Break from the party? I ue-er
thought to hear you say any such a
"Young Wendell must have put up
the job to get Dorsey in a hole." declared McMannis angrily. "And he's
put Tom McMannis aud Tim Collins iu
just as bad a oue."
"I'll stand by you. whatever you do."
said Tim loyally. "But as Dorsey men
neither of us cau get a job on a city
wagon in tlie Tenth ward. There's too
many  babies."
And Tun Collins departed, cursing
tlie folly of Dorsey.
Tbe extra edition ot the Express had
lieen issued sh.irlly after noon, and by
3 o'clock it seemed as if most of the
men and every woman in the ward had
seen a copy of the paper.
"To think of him saying that about
the babies." said Mrs. O'Neil. the mother of the fat Johnnie. "And Ihe pour
dnrllnts almost perished with the beat
���D u the haiiies,' because tbey can't
vole, is It? till, but I wish Ihe women
had a vote. We'd show Mr. Dorsey
what it meant."
And the sentiments of Mrs. O'Neil
were forcibly echoed by all the women
All that afternoon the local henchmen of McMannis visited liis saloon.
Each gloomily condemned the Imprudence of Dorsey, and each, at first
timidly and then more boldly, suggested to McManuis that it was absolutely
necessary for the Tenth ward to rebel
agaiust the rule of the boss. But McMannis, bound by years of allegiance
to the organization, hesitated to declare against it. Early lhat evening
while he was discussing the situation
with Tim Collins a message came stating that Dorsey desired to see both of
them at the organization headquarters.
The message was a little peremptory
and did not add to McMannis' good humor. Still he aud his lieutenant prepared to obey. A few yards from tha
saloon the Tenth ward politicians met
Mrs. O'Neil, accompanied by pretty
Mollie Grady, for whom Tim Collins
had more than a faint affection.
"And did you see what Dorsey said
about tho babies?" asked Mrs. O'Neil,
stopping McManuis. "You're a good
niau. Mr. McMannis. and we all like
you and know you've done what you
could to get the recreation pier and
other things for the people in this
ward, but good man that you are there
are few votes you can control In the
Tenth as long as you stick by that
"Well, Mrs. O'Neil." replied McManuis, trying to placate the offended
mother, "I'm loyal to my party, but
you will find me looking out for the
Tenth, my own ward, first."
A moment later he was rejoined by
Tim Collins, who had slopped to speak
to brown eyed Mollie.
"I asked her if she would go to the
picnic with inc.'' observed Tim.gloomily, "aud she said. 'Are you a Dorsey
man?' And 1 says, '1 suppose I am.'
Says she, 'I'll go to no picnics with a
fellow who hacks up a man that curses
little babies and says they can die of
the heat.' "
The ward leader and his lieutenant
looked doubtfully at each other. Theu
each understood. McMannis called ti
Dorsey's messenger, who had beeu
wailing across the slrcet.
"Y'ou tell Mr. Dorsey," said McMannis tersely,  "that Tim  and   I  are too
busy   to   come   now.     After   election
.we'll have more time."
Dorsey and his adherents were not
men to sit quietly in the face of impending defeat. They worked desperately; the whole Influence of the police and of city employees was thrown
in favor of the organization. Yet each
day it was evident the once Invincible
boss wns losing ground. T''o defection of McMannis anl the formerly
solid organization of the Tc lth ward
proved n heavy blow.
On election night the re nit was
practically certain long before tbe totals were known. The uptown districts, as had been expected, voted
against Dorsey. Then enme sentlorlng
districts slightly in his favor. Then
the result In the Tenth ward was announced. Il wns solidly ngnlnsl ihe
boss, lint when the districts 111 which
the organ bullion was strongcrl were
counted Dorsey and Ills iidherei'ls gave
up hope. Instead of an nitons) rtrillglll
organhca I ion vole Hie returns 111 these
districts showed small nin'orilles
Which would fall far short of overcoming Ihe vole In the niillorganl-nllon
districts and the Tenlh ward. Then
Dorsey and his lieutenants gave up the
fight nnd. leaving the organisation
headquarters, sought a place where
they could drown I heir grief and make
plans for Ihe future Near headquarters Dorsey met Hurry Wendell. The
defeated leader looked at the young
lawyer with a scowl.
"You think you heat me. don't yon."
growled Ihe ex boss���"you and vour
reformers? Well, you didn't. 1 -an
down your crowd every time, it was
the baliies that beat me."

Peachland Prosperous.
Among the various settlements
of the Okanagan Valley few at
the present time show so many
signs of progress as Peachland.
Last Saturday we spent the day
in the settlement, engaging a
team and driving over most of
the roads among the numerous
picturesque orchards and comfortable homes. On every hand
are signs of improvement. Nearly a dozen new houses are in
course of construction. They are
not ordinary houses either for
Peachland is noted fur ils handsome residences, and those being
built are quite on a par with
those already standing. Long
lines of stone fences, or rather
walls oi* stones laid in mortar,
are being put up, while more
land is being cleared and prepared for planting. A new four-
roomed school house, identical
with those at Penticton and Kelowna, is being built to accommodate the rising generation; the
box factory is busy turning out
boxes for this year's fruit crop,
while the packing-house and
cannery are busy disposing of
the fruit.
Last year the peach crop
amounted to less than twenty
thousand crates, while this season there will be from twenty-
five   to   thirty   thousand crates,
sent out.     The  prolonged sun-!	
shine this summer has  had   a i *
material effect upon the quality I knowing its origin apparently,
and color of the peaches. The and they ai-e satisfied,
trees growing older may also
have something to do with the
improvement in the quality. At j without trial it is poor encourage-
any rate we never before tasted |ment to the originator, and as
anything in the peach line to, this is only one of several pro-
equal the product of the orchards ducts which we hope to manu-
at Peachland this season. ��� We \ facture when the time comes,
would estimate that the fruit 18uch as fruit boxes- shingles,

My point is this: If a local  industry is to be flatly condemned
may be seen the neat little rustic
stone cottage of Seth  Davison
amid an array of rare and beautiful  flowers.     Mr.   Davison  has
here a three acre plot which  he
has terraced and planted in fruit
trees.    The care  which  he  has
given them has  resulted in  the
obtaining of marvellous results
in a relatively  short   space   of
time.    He has in bearing two-
year-old Y.   St.   John and one-
year-old   Triumph  peach   trees,
one-year-old Abundance  plums,
Sugar prunes, crabs and pears.
He has seven Spy apples on a
three-year-old tree,   six Winter
Banana apples on one two years
old and  six on  a   two-year-old
Calvert.    One-year-old Wagners,
two-year-old    Talman    Sweets,
Red   Astrachans,   and   Graven-
steins   are   also   bearing,     The
trees are much larger and better
developed than those of the  ordinary orchard at the same age.
Mr. Davison attributes much  of
his success to  the   fact  that  he
put   his   ground   thoroughly   in
shape, clearing it of stones and
bringing it  well  under cultivation, before planting his trees.

To tho Editor of Tim Pentigton PltEBS:
Dear Sm, -1 suppose we are
all agreed that any industry that
cm be started here is a
benefit to Penticton. We have
lately added a lath mill to our
plant and have had home-made
lath on the market for the past
1 yesterday received an order
from a gentleman, who has lately
arrived here, for some 20 M.
and was surprised an hour later
t) have the order countermand-
el. Me was told by a carpenter
fiat it was no use buying lath
from us as the local plasterers
would not use them. If that
were so I should have nothing to
say. As a matter of fact our
manufactured lath is being used!
