Greatest Event in Record of Town
The success that has attended
the planning and carrying out of
the First of July celebration has
amply compensated the Penticton Athletic Association and its
various committees for the a-
mount of work that it has taken.
From the standpoint of the three
departments, athletic and aquatic-
sports, and horse races, the day
was probably the most successful
of any ever held in the Okanagan. In all their departments
the machinery worked almost to
perfection, for had there been
any delay in running oif any of
the events it would have been
impossible to have got through
in one day. Although only two
weeks had elapsed since the citizens purchased the beautiful
piece of meadow land for a racetrack and recreation ground, a
very good track had been laid
out and a substantial grandstand,
with booth underneath,  erected.
On the day previous numbers
began to arrive from outside
points, coming in from Keremeos, Hedley and other places,
some of them bringing horses to
compete in the races of the following day. On the morning of
the First, E. Bullodk-Webster
brought up a party in his launch
from Okanagan Falls, and a
number of skiffs and launches
arrived from Summerland and
Naramata. The C. P. R. Str.
Aberdeen, which had been chartered to run from Kelowna, came
in shortly after ten o'clock, having on board the Kelowna Brass
Band, which had been engaged
for the occasion, as well as about
a hundred passengers, mostly
from the same point. The number of excursionists would have
been much larger but for the fact
that a game of baseball was to
be played on the same day between Summerland and Kelowna
at the latter place. The respective teams had been winners in
three league games each this
season, and, as a consequence,
the game was of so much interest that many of the Kelowna
people remained at home, while
the sporting element of Summer-
land, almost in a body, followed
their team to Kelowna. This
was the result of an unfortunate
mistake on the part of the baseball league in listing a match at
Kelowna on the First, which has
for a number of years been recognized as Penticton's annual
celebration day.
The aquatic sports were billed
to start at 9 a. m. and they began
sharp on time. Notwithstanding
the hour being early, a large
crowd of enthusiastic witnesses
were present and the enthusiasm
and interest throughout the entire forenoon was general. This
of itself is substantial evidence
of the popularity of this class of
sport, and the enthusiasts have
grown even more enthusiastic for
next year. One man offers to
see that a cup is offered as a
prize for either a sailing or a
rowing contest. If such trophies
were put up a sufficient time
ahead they would prove an inducement for persons to secure
good boats and train in the
handling of them. It was found
necessary to postpone a few of
the aquatic events until the evening, they not all having been
finished by noon, and the races
and other sports began directly
after. The sailing race did not
come off until the following
morning. The races and athletics
were witnessed in the afternoon
by a large and equally enthusiastic crowd. It is probable that
next year the First of July will
i ba devoted entirely to water
sports, and another dav later in
the season entirely to races and
In addition to the affair being
a success from a sporting standpoint, it was a complete financial
success, and the Association,
after all liabilities are met, will
find itself on a good footing.
The receipts were as follows :
Entrance at gate. $140; sale of
refreshments at booth, $214 ;
grand stand collections, $36.50;
entrance fees to horse races, $98;'
sale of programmes, $5; ground
rent for stand, $5; total, $498.50.

races the sports were purely

The services of the Kelowna
Brass Band throughout the day
were very much appreciated.
During the forenoon they played
at the wharf and at Hotel Penticton and in the afternoon on
the recreation grounds. A number of selections were given at
the B. C. Hotel in the evening
and later at the wharf until about
9 p. m. The Band wished to
thank the people of Penticton
through the Press for the courteous treatment they had received, saying that they had been
treated all right and appreciated
it, and were glad they had come.
Before the assemblage broke
up there was a distribution of
prizes. Mr. and Mrs. L. W.

the winners.

Before the session ended Principal Barker addressed Miss Mac-
Kinlay with very appropriate
and heart-felt words, expressive
of deep regret at her retiring
from the staff of teachers, and
her departure from the town.
He spoke of her faithfulness, of
her never-failing energy, and of
the high esteem in which she is
held by the children, teachers
and community generally. Then,
in behalf of himself, Miss Yuill,
and the pupils, he presented
Miss MacKinlay with a gold ring
set with opals, and a brooch, as
a slight token of esteem and
friendship, expressing the hope
that she might ere long return
to Penticton.
Penticton School Closing.
The closing exercises of the
public schools took place on Tuesday morning. Very few friends
were in attendance. During the
first part of the morning the different teachers conducted  regu-
"Don'ts" for Campers.
1. Don't, when in the woods,
throw down a lighted match,
cigar-stub or other flaming object; make sure that the flame
has been thoroughly extinguished
before throwing it away.
2. Don't build your camp fire
1 vrger than is necessary.
li Don't, under any circumstances, leave your fire unguarded, even for a comparatively
short time; see that it is dead
out before you go away.
4. Don't build your fire in
leaves, rotten wood or other inflammable material.
5. Don't build your fire a-
gainst a large or hollow log,
where it is hard to be sure when
it has been entirely put out.
To these "don'ts" it may be
added that in windy weather, or
in a dangerous place, it is well
to confine the fire in a hole dug
clean down to the mineral soil.
A fire may smoulder in the
humus, or "duff," for days, only
waiting for a strong breeze to
fan it into a flame that may burn
over miles of timber.
Summer tourists and campers
unfortunately have a bad reputation among the owners of timber
limits as being a frequent cause
of fires. Such fires could be prevented, almost without exception
by a little extra care on the part
of the campers, who have been
the unintentional cause of much
forest destruction, and who have
just as real an interest in the
preservation of the forests as the
owners of the timber themselves.
The rules given above are the
result of long experience and observation on the part of many
woodsmen and lumbermen as to
the origin of fires from this
cause, and arc earnestly commended to the attention of campers, sportsmen, and others.
The need for observing them
is emphasized b^ the occurrence
a few days ago of serious fires in
the Lake St. John district in
Quebec, one village being wiped
out; the fires are thought tb have
originated from fires left by

Penticton is situated at the
southern extremity of Okanagan
Lake in the centre of the great
fruit producing section of British
Columbia. The palatial C. P. R.
steamer Okanagan makes daily
I rips between this point and Okanagan Landing, -seventy miles
to the north, connecting all the
lake points with a branch line of
lh'1 ('. P. R. from Sicamous.
As Okanagan Landing is the
northern outlet by railway for
the entire Okanagan Lake dis-
trict, so Penticton will be the
i ii11 let at the south. The C.
P. It. in connecting its branch to
i lie Nicola and upper Similka-
meen with its line to Midway
will touch at Penticton, thus
placing this point on the shortest
line between the Northwest and
the Pacific Coast. This road is
lo be constructed in the near
future. The Great Northern
Railway in building up the Similkameen, with Vancouver as its
objective point, is now at Keremeos, only thirty miles from
Penticton. A branch will be
built from this road to Penticton
in order to tap the Okanagan
country. Penticton is thus to
become the southern gateway of
the Okanagan, with the shortest
communication by two railways
both, to the east and west.
Although one of the youngest
towns in the Okanagan. Penticton has within the short space of
three years sprung to a foremost
position. The name has existed
as a geographic expression for
forty years, but until the Southern Okanagan Land Co. obtained
possession of the land and opened
it to settlement, the entire district was owned by Thos. Ellis
and employed as a great cattle
ranch. Upon the acquirement
of the property, the company
immediately began, at an immense cost, the construction of
the most extensive and complete
irrigation system in the province
of British Columbia. The land
was then thrown open for settlement in ten-acre blocks at prices
ranging from $50 to $200 per
acre. Since that time the progress of the town and community
has been unchecked. A continuous, and ever-increasing stream
of immigrants has arrived. Hundreds of acres have been brought
under cultivation and comfortable homes established;
The townsite of Penticton is
pronounced by all to be one of
the best in the Okanagan Valley.
Jf is large, level, picturesque,
has excellent drainage, and has
been laid out with special care.
Dog Lake, four miles to the
south, is an exquisite sheet of
water, extending for eight miles
down the valley. The Main
street of the town extends from
lake to lake. Streets have been
laid out along the shores of both
lakes, thus giving free access to
the public of the most beautiful
lake shores to be found anywhere
in Canada. Both lakes at Penticton are admirably suited to
bathing, the water being shallow
for a considerable distance from
shore, while the beaches are
sandy, Bathing, boating, and
fishing are among the attractive
features of Penticton as a residential location, To these might
be added miles of, picturesque
drives, and an ever-changing j
variety of the most beautiful
scenery. In fact Nature seems
to have excelled itself in its endeavor to make Penticton an
ideal residential place. That
this fact is appreciated, is shown
by the rapid growth of the town,
and the handsome residences
that have been erected.
'I'lie climate of Penticton is
suited to the growing of peaches
apricots, the best varieties of j
cherrie, such as the Bingandthe'
more tender varieties of grapes.
There is little snowfall, and the
Ihermoter rarely indicates a zero
l smperature in winter. As a
c insequonce the finest class of
settlers to be found anywhere is
being attracted. The moral tone
of the community is exceptional-

inducement to the intending
Up to the present time about
twelve hundred acres have been
planted in orchard, comprising
about one hundred thousand
trees, mostly peaches and apple?.
Apart from being a fruit growing locality, Penticton gives
promise of becoming an industrial centre. Among the industries the canning and preserving
of fruits will of course be important. Last year a cannery
was operated upon a small scale
and the product, chiefly canned
tomatoes, has been universally
pronounced superior to the imported article, from the fact that
Okanagan grown tomatces
possess more meat and less water
than those grown in the east. A
company capitalized at twenty-
five thousand dollars has recently been organized to take up the
canning business on an extensive
scale, and will begin operations
as soon as the fruit season opens.
There are two saw-mills in the
vicinity, while there is a good
opening for a brick-making plant,
there being plenty of clay suitable for the purpose. Although
no official analysis has been
made, it is believed that the
proper material for the manufacture of Portland cement exists
in large quantities.
Five or ten acres of land is
quite sufficient for a family. Orchards begin bearing three years
after planting. On the fourth
year peaches should yield at least
three hundred dollars per acre,
while eight hundred to one thousand dollars per acre is a conservative estimate for the produc
of a five-year-old orchard. Apples
take a little longer to come into J
full bearing, but are none the
less profitable.

university, my old teacher in chemistry. His hour Is half past 5, nnd
I've got an invitation for yon. There

"I'd rather not go. .lack, if you don't

I'd feel myself rather a damper on the

learn something nbout strategy. What

"Rather early. Ten or half past."
"Good. I'll wait up for you."
At 5 o'clock Jack was at the chemist's and received his package. On
opening It he found the ozak In two
four-ounce glass stoppered bottles, aud
these he put In his pocket.
"Will you give me three spray

"Oh, we're going to travel all night,

"Y'es, excellency."
"Did the general say you should not

"No. your excellency; he just said.
'Do uot trouble his highness tonight,
but give him tills iu the morning.' "
"III that case let me have it now."
The captain pulled a letter from his
pocket and presented It to the prince.
It contained merely the two notes
which I.erniontoff had written to
Drummond and to tho cznr.
FTER the captain left him Ler-
niontoff closed and bolted the
door, then sat down upon tlie
edge of his bed to meditate up
the situation. He heard distant
bells ringing on shore somewhere and.
looking at his watch, saw it was just
11 o'clock. It seemed incredible that
three-quarters of an hour previously
he had left the hospitable doors of a
friend and now was churning his way
lu au unknown steamer to an unknown
destination, it appeared impossible
that so much could have happened in
forty-five minutes. He wondered what
Drummond wns doing and what action he would take when he found his
friend missing.
However, pondering over tho matter
brought no solution of the mystery, so.
being a practical young man, he cast
Ihe subject from his mind, picked up
his   heavy   overcoat,   which   he   hail
flung on the bed, and hung It up on
(lie hook attached to the door.   As he
did this his hand came In contact with
a tube In one of the pockets, aud for
a moment he Imagined it was his r��
volver, but he found it was the meta.
Kvringe he bad purcnaseel tuat evening
from    the    chemist.      Tlii.i    set    his
thoughts whirling In another direction,
lie took from an inside pocket one of
the bottles of ozak, examining It under the candle light, wishing he had a
piece of rock with which to experiment.   Then with a yawn he replaced
��� he  materials In  his overcoat pocket,
took off his boots and threw himself
on tho bed. thankful It was not an or-
lilnnry shelf bunk, but a generous and
comfortable resting place.   Now Katherine appeared before his closed eyes,
and band In hand they wandered into
dreamland together.
When he awoke, it was pitch dark In
his cabin. The candles, which he had
neglected to extinguish, had burned
themselves out, The short, jerky mo-
lion of the steamer Indicated that he
wus aboard ii small vessel and that
Ibis small vessel was out in the open
sea. He believed that a noise of some
kind had awakened him, and tills was
confirmed by a knock at his door which |
caused him to spring up nnd throw
back tlie bolt. The steward wns there,
but In the dim light of the passage he
saw nothing of the sentinel. He knew
It was daylight outside.
"The captain, excellency, wishes to
know if you will breakfast with liini
or take your meal In your room."
"Present my compliments to the captain und say I shall have great pleas
urn In breakfasting with him."
"It will be ready In a quarter of an
Unur, excellency."
"Very good. Come for me at. that

"(!ood   day    to   you."    returned   the

"I am u native of Abo," replied the

"Again, captain, my (banks, Lend
the way, and I will follow."
They emerged oil deck Into a dismal
gray morning. No land or craft of any
kind was iu sight. The horizon formed a small, close circle round the ship.
Clouds bung low, running before the
wind and bringing intermittently little
dashes of rain that seemed still further to compress the walls of horizon.
Tlie sea was not what could be called
rough, but merely choppy and fretful.
With short waves that would not have
troubled a larger craft. The steamer
proved to be a small, undistinguished,
dingy looking boat, more like a commercial trump than a government vessel. An officer, apparently the mate,
stood on the bridge, sinewy hands
grasping the rail, peering ahead into
the white mist that was almost a fog.
The promenade deck afforded no great
scope for pedestrlanlsm, but captain
and prisoner walked back and forth
over Ihe restricted space, talking genially together as If they were old
friends. Nevertheless there was a certain cautious giiardedness in the captain's speech���tlie wary craft of an unready man who is In tlie presence of a
person more subtle than himself. The
bluff captain remembered he bnd been
caught napping the night liefore when,
after refusing to tell the prince tlie direction of tlie steamer, be had given
himself awny by mentioning the gulf
of Finland. LermontoH noticed this
reluctance to plunge Into the abyss of
tree conversation, and so. instead of
reassuring him he would ask no more
questions, ho merely took upon his
own shoulders the burden of the talk
and related to the captain certain wonders of London and New York.
The steward advanced respectfully to
the captain nnd announced breakfast
ready, whereupon the t\.o men followed him into ii saloon uot much larger
than the stateroom LermontoH had occupied the night before and not nearly
so comfortably furnished. A plenteous
breakfast was supplied, consisting
principally of fish, steaming potatoes,
black bread and very strong tea. The
captain swallowed cup nfter cup of
this scalding beverage, and it seemed
to make him more and more genial, as
if it hud been wine. Indeed, us time
went on he forgot thnt it wns a prisoner who sat before him. for quite innocently he said to the steward who waited on them:
"Have the poor devils below had anything to eat?"
"No orders, sir." replied the steward.
"Oh, well, give them something-
something hot. It may be tbelr last
meal." then turning, be met the gaze of
the prince, demanded roughly anothei
cup of tea, and explained:
"Three of the crew took* too much
vodka in St. Petersburg yesterday."
The prince nodded carelessly, as If
he believed, and offered bis open clg-
arelt.' case to the captain, who shook
his head.
"1 smoke a pipe." he growled
The captain rose with his lighted
pipe, and together they went up on
deck again. Tlie prince saw nothing
more of the tall sentinel who had been
his guard the night before, so without
asking permission he took it for granted that his movements, now they were
in the open sea. were unrestricted,
therefore he walked up and down the
deck smoking cigarettes. At tlie stroke
of a bell the captain mounted the
bridge and the mate came down.
Suddenly out of the thickness ahead
loomed up a great black British freighter making for St.  Petersburg, as the
prince supposed.    The  two  steamers,
big and little, were so close that each
wns compelled In sheer off a bit.   Then
the captain turned on the bridge aud
seemed for a moment uncertain what I
to do with his prisoner.    A number of
men were leaning over the bulwarks of I
the   British  ship,  and   it   would   have :
been quite possible for the  person oil j
one boat to give n message to those ou j
Ihe other.    The prince, understanding
the captain's quandary, looked up at !
him and smiled, but made no attempt I
to take advantage of his predicament !
Some oue on board the English ship
shouted and fluttered u  handkerchief.
whereupon the prince waved his cig I
arette In th* air, and the big boat ills- I
appeared In the thickness of tho east.    |
LermontolT walked the deck, think
ing very seriously nbout bis situation
and wondering where tbey intended to
take him. If he were to be put In
prison, It must be In some place of detention on the coast of Finland, which

The Sudden Death of a Respected
Pioneer of British Columbia.
While visiting some old friends,
Mr. and Mrs. Sanson in Spokane,
Mrs. Dowding after a short illness passed away on June 20th.
The deceased lady was one of the
pioneers of British Columbia,
[laving arrived with her father,
Captain Pittendrigh, in New
Westminster early in 1874. In
1875 she married the late Judge
rlaynes, removing to Osoyoos
Lake where the Judge had his
jxtensive stock ranch. Here in
in ideal home in this lovely spot

leath in 1888 in dispensing a;
lavish hospitality, and to those

���omes the memory of an old
English Home with its kindly
lost antl hostess surrounded by
i group of happy children.
The suddeness of  her death
:ame as a great shock to her
family and friends, her immedi-
tte relations being Messrs.  Val,
William, and  Sherman  Haynes,
sons, and Mrs. R. B. White, Mrs.
3. H.   Parkinson,   and Mrs.   R.

placed on the porch overlooking
che beautiful lake and residence
which had been for so many

Though the notice of the fun-
aral was unavoidably short a
large number of old friends from
ooth sides of the line gathered
;o pay a last tribute of respect
to one whose goodness of heart
ind kindly disposition had en-
leared her to those who knew
A touching evidence of sympathy was given by the Indians of
the village of In-Ka-Mip,   who
hald an impromptu religious ser-;
vice as a tribute of gratitude to i
me who in past years had always j
3ntended a helping hand to them
in their need.
The Rev. Mr. Cameron con- j
lucted a most impressive service
commencing with the singing of I
"Nearer My God to Thee," followed by the Indians who sang
several hymns in their native
language. Mr. Cameron concluded with a touching and eloquent address to the assembled
A move was then made to the
head of the lake, where on a
small knoll the remains were deposited in their final resting
place, and so we have to write
"Requiescat in Pace" over another of the fast diminishing
band of the real pioneers.
