The Fire protection By-law recently enacted makes it compulsory on the part of owners of lots
between and adjoining Ellis St.
ind Winnipeg St. and Okanagan
Lake and Eckhardt Ave. to burn
or remove all underbrush under
one inch in diameter and all inflammable matter, within thirty
days. If the by-law is not complied with, further provision is
made whereby the council may
have the work done and assess
the cost against the property.
Though it may be merely from
an inability to find anything else
to write about, the Penticton
correspondent to the Iledely
Gazette seems very desirous
of picking a quarrel with the
Press. It would show a more
honorable spirit if the writer
would sign his name to the articles, or, better still, if he would
send them to the Press for publication. We would be very
pleased to publish them; besides
the writer would be enabled to
reach a larger circle of Penticton
readers. However, if he lacks
the moral courage to reveal his
identity, he must pardon us for
considering his articles beneath
the notice of the Press
in the future, unless it be
in cases where he makes misstatements of a misleading character, such as he has been indulging in lately, and which
must certainly do harm to the
community if permitted to go unchallenged.
Kelowna vs. Penticton at Football.
The Penticton junior and senior football teams visited Kelowna and opened the football season
by playing matches with the
teams of that town on Good Friday.
T. Stark, captain of the Penticton team, winning the toss,
set his opponents to play against
the wind. The Kelowna boys at
once settled down to work, and,
through an error of the visiting
defence, scored goal one. In the
restart, Penticton showed up
better, their defence playing a
great game, but the forwards
seemed completely outmatched.
The latter being one man short
played a Kelowna junior. By
half time Kelowna had two
In the second half Kelowna
following up their advantage got
through again, their forwards,
especially the left wing, being
hard to hold in check. The Penticton forwards, though well
looked after by the halves, with
the exception of Gibbons and
Sell were not players. Syer, in
the forward line, worked hard,
and considering that this was his
arst appearance did well. The
?ame ended 4-0 in favor of the
home team, who all played a
^ood clean and consistent game.
juniors win.
The junior game was called for
1:30 p. m. The boys being
anxious to get to work, lined up
punctually. Kelowna kicked off,
and for a time got the best of the
?ame and scored. This had the
effect of waking up the visitors,
who seemed, against the wind,
unable to draw even before half
time. In the restart our boys
worked better together, showing
Kelowna their heels and scoring
three goals through Adamson,
Lancaster and Rogers. Kelowna
being completely outclassed, the
natch ended in 3-1 in favor of
the visitors.
Some of the boys, with consistent practice should soon be
seen in the ranks of the seniors.
Both teams were entertained
at the Royal Hotel by the Kelowna club in a most hospitable
manner for both lunch and dinner. Altogether a very enjoyable day was spent.
The return matches are to be
played in Penticton on Thursday
next, when it is hoped that the
Penticton seniors will retrieve
their lost honors, and treat Kelowna royally.
Masquerade Ball.
The Maquerade Ball, on Monday evening last, in aid of the
Penticton Fire Brigade, was a
decided success, though up to
about ten o'clock it looked as if
the affair would be a dismal failure. Those acquainted with the
ways of the Penticton bublic
were hopeful even at that hours,
for they knew that seldom, if
ever, is there a full attendance
at the time set. (It is to be
hoped that there will be an exception to this rule next Monday
night in order not to interfere
with the program of the Williams' Jubilee Singers.)
However, at half past ten the
dancing was in full swing with
about forty couples on the floor.
Summerland was well represeted
though not in costume, and
several from Kelowna and the
Falls were also present. The
music was furnished by the Kelowna orchestra, whose excellent
music was much appreciated.
The judges were Messrs. W.
Leishman and A. McQueen, both
strangers to Penticton, who
awarded the prizes as follows: ���
For best representative costume,
ladies,' Mrs. Estabrooke as
Queen of spades; best representative costume, gentlemen's, J. W.
Edmonds as Indian Chief;, best
ladies' costume, Mrs. Smith, Kelowna, as Mexican Lady, best
gentlemen's costume, L. Morgan
as Sikh Officer. The prizes were
donated by private citizens.
Refreshments of coffee, cake,
and sandwiches were served at
midnight, after which dancing
was resumed and continued until
half past three.
Much   credit is due the  committee in charge   for the able
manner in which they conducted

Tho Hedley Gazette in its last
issue apologetically says:
"There 'was no need for the
editor of the Penticton Press getting angry when the Gazette
pointed out some folly and inconsistency in connection with his advocacy of local option."
The Gazette has an exceedingly short memory. That paper

The Press has no desire to

the right of the people to determine tbe question for themselves. We always understood
that Conservativeism was n< t

persons in the room.
Now sir. the post office is a

It speaks well for the moral atmosphere of Penticton that the
provincial police department sees
no fnrther necessity for retaining a constable at this point.
Doubtless, if the, number of
arrests made were taken as a
basis upon which to determine
the necessity for maintaining a
constable, the decision would
have to be that the expenditure1 From thorough-bred Brown Leghorn I

by her perfectly fitting purments. Her
face was oval, the mouth rather large,
the eyes of dark, dark blue, prominently outlined under thin, silken lids. Uer
Cull ttolil hair was com lied low over
the ears, and her smile showed rows
of sparkling teeth hefore It dived Into

Then tie woman spoke:

"What the devil's this?" said the
lookout roughly. "Are you drunk,
Bronco?   Get out of that chair, miss!"
She turned to him slowly. The innocence had fled from her features, and
the big eyes flashed warnlngly. A
change had coarsened her like a puff
of nlr on a still pool. Theu. while she
stared at him. her lids drooped dangerously and her lip curled.
"Throw him out. Bronco." she said,

For twenty minutes she continued,

never once did the lookout detect an
While she was busy Glenlster entered the front door and pushed his way
back toward the theater. He was worried and distrait, his manner perturbed
and unnatural. Silently and without
apparent notice he passed friends who
greeted hlin.
"What ails Glenlster tonight?" asked
a bystander.   "lie acts funny."
"Ain't you heard? Why. the Midas
has been Jumped He's in a bad way-
all I roke up "
The girl suddenly ceased without finishing the deck and arose.
"Don't stop." said the Kid, while a
murmur of dismay came from the spectators. She only shook her head and
drew on her gloves with a show of

here. She stopped a waiter and questioned liiin.
"He's upstairs In a gallery box."
"Yes'm. Anyhow, he was a minute
ago. unless some of the rustlers has
broke In on him."
A moment Inter Glenlster. watching
the scene below, was aroused from his
gloomy absorption by the click of the
box door and the rustle of silken skirts.
"Go out. please," he said, without
turning. "I do-.i't want company."
Hearing no answer, he began again. "I
came here to be alone"���but there he
ceased, for the girl had come forward
and laid her two hot hands upon his
"Hoy," she breathed, and he arose
"Cherry!    When did yon come?"
"Oh, days ago," she said. Impatiently,
"from   Dawson.    They   told   me  you
hnd struck It. I stood it ns long ns 1
could���then I came to yon. Now. tell
me about yourself. I.et me see you
first, quick!"
She pulled him towards the light and
gazed upward, devouring him hungrily
with her great, languorous eyes. She
held to his coat lapels, standing close
beside bim, her warm breath beating
up into his face.
"Well." she said, "kiss me!"
He took her wrists in his and loosed
her hold, then looked down on her
gravely and said:
"No���that's all over. I told you so
when I  left Dawson."
"All over! Oh. no. it Isn't, boy. You
think so. but it Isn't���it can't be. 1
love yon too much to let you go."
"Hush!" said he. "There are people
In the next box."
"I don't care! Let them hear." she
cried, with feminine recklessness. "I'm
proud of my love for you. I'll tell it
to them���to the whole world."
"Now. see here, little girl," he said
quietly, "we had a long talk in Dawson nnd agreed that it was best to divide our ways. I was mad over you
once, ns a good many other men have
been, but I came to my senses. Nothing could ever result from It, and I
told jou so."
"Yes, yes; I know. 1 thought I could
give you up, but 1 didn't realize till
you had gone how I wanted you. Oh.
It's beeu a torture to me every day for
the post two years." There was no
semblance uow to the cold creature
she hud appeared upon entering the
gambling hull. She spoke rapidly, her
whole body tense with emotion, her
voice shaken with passion. "I've seen
men and men and men. and they've
loved me, but I never cared for anybody In the world till 1 saw you. They
run after me, but you were cold. You
made me come to you. Perhaps that
was It. Anyhow, I can't stand It. I'll
give up everything, I'll do anything,
just to be where you are. What do
you-think of a woman who will beg?
Oh. I've lost my pride! I'm a fool���a
fool-but 1 can't help It!"
"I'm sorry you feel this way." snld
Glenlster. "It Isn't my fault, and it
Isn't of any use."
For an instant she stood quivering,
while the light died out of her face;
then, with a characteristic change, she
smiled til) the dimples laughed In her
cheeks. She sank upon a seat beside
blui and pulled together the curtains,
shutting out the sight below.
"Very well!" Then she put his hand
to her cheek nnd cuddled It. "I'm glad
to see you just the same, and you can't
keep me from loving you."
With Ills other hand he smoothed her
hair, while, unknown to him nnd beneath her lightness, she shrank and
quivered at his touch like u Burbnry
steed under the whip.
"Things are very bad with me." he
said.   "We've had our mine Jumped."
"Bah! Y'ou know what to do. You
aren't a cripple. You've got five fingers
on your gun hand."
"That's It! They all tell me that���all

to do. I thought I did. but I don't.

and I've tried to meet It halfway.

Cherry Malotte leaned forward
where the light shone on the young
man's worried face.
"Tbe girl?   What girl?   Who Is she?"
Her voice hud lost Its lazy caress, her
lips had thinned. Never wns a woman's fuce more eloquent, mused Gleuis-
ter as he noted her. Every thought
(led to Ihis window to peer forth, fearful, lustful, hateful, as the case might
be. He had loved to play with her In
the former days, to work upon her passions and watch the changes, fo note
her features mirror every varying emotion from tenderness to flippancy, from
anger to delight, and at his bidding to
see the pale cheeks glow with love's
lire, tlie eyes grow heavy. Ihe dainty
lips invite kisses. Cherry was a perfect little spoiled animal, he reflected,
and a very dangerous one.
"What girl?" she questioned again,
and he knew beforehand the look thai
went wit!) it.
"The girl 1 Intend to marry." he snld
slowly, looking her between tlie eyes.
He knew he was cruel���he wanted to

within him. while he also felt that the

Bronco Kid lighted a cigar us they
passed, uodding silently at their greeting. His eyes followed them, while

THE water front had a strong attraction for Helen Chester ami
rarely did u fair day pass without finding her in some quiet
spot from which she could watch the
shifting life along its edge, the ships
at anchor nnd the varied incidents of
the surf.
This morning she snt in n dory pulled
high up on the beach, bathed In the
bright sunshine and staring nt tho
rollers, while lines of concentration
wrinkled her brow. The wind hnd
blown for some days till the ocean beat
heavily across the shallow bar. and
now, as it became qnleter, longshoremen were launching their craft, preparing to resume their traffic.
Not until the previous day bad the
news of ber friends' misfortune come
to her. and although she hud heard no
hlut of fraud, she begun to realize that
they were Involved In a serious tangle.
To the questions which she anxiously
put to her uncle he had replied that
their difficulty arose from a technicality In the mining laws which another
man hud been shrewd enough to profit
by. It was a complicated question, he
snld. and one requiring time to thrash
out to an equitable settlement. She
had undertaken to remind him of the
service these men had done her. but,
with a smile, he interrupted. He could
uot allow such things to influence Ills
judicial attitude, and she must not endeavor to prejudice bim in the discharge of his duty. Recognizing the
Justice of this, she had desisted.
For many days the girl hud caught
scattered talk between the Judge and
McNamara and between Struve und
bis associates, but it all seemed foreign
and dry. nud beyond the fact that it
bore on the litigation over the Anvil
creek mines, she understood nothing
and cared less, particularly as u new

He had begun wifii quiet, half concealed admiration of her, which had
rapidly increased until his attentions
had become of a singularly positive
and resistless character.
Judge Stillmun wus openly delighted, while the court of one like Alec
McNamara, could but flatter any girl.
Iu his preseuco Helen felt herself rebelling at bis suit, yet as distance sep-
uruted them she thought ever more
kindly of It. This state of mind contrasted oddly with her feelings toward
tlie other man she had met, for in this
country there were but two. When
Glenlster was with her she saw his
love lying nakedly hi his eyes, and it

to him In spite of herself, but when

I General Merchant.
Hundreds of copies of tin1 PRESS are sent out of
town every week. People at a distance size up the business interests of a place by the advertising columns of the
local paper. It is the only way they can do it. We are
at present advertising all the, churches, secret societies,
Municipal Council, School Bor\rd, Board of Trade, stage
routes, post office hours and CI P. R. time table, free of
charge, and would gladiy advc irtise every business firm in
town the same way, if we cou! il, but we cannot do it because it take.s money to run a .paper. It costs more to
carry an advertisement in the I PRESS than in the post
office, but we are convinced tl lat the PRESS .will give the
better returns. We are doing everything in our power to
. forward the interests of the town, and guarantee to turn
out the very best paper that cm be turned out with the
financial support received.
There are only two or three r sople a?, ywhere in the'
district who are not subscribers f. tr the 1 'RESS. What
wouldn't we sacrifice if they could only be added to our
list? The subscription is one dollpir per yes r. It is worth
that to light the fire with.
