Annual Report of the Literary
and Debating Society from
Oct. 1908 to Mar. 1909
The executive committee of the
'��� Literary and Debating Society
met at the home of Mr. Lancaster on Thursday, the 17th inst,
for the purpose of closing the
| business of the society for the
present season. The spring has
opened up so suddenly that those
interested in the society are extremely busy, the result being
that it is impossible to hold any
further meetings this season.
Again, L. C. Barnes' hall has
been closed to public meetings
since the end of February.
Although we have not had so
many debates as last season,
those we have had have been
well attended, which fact shows
that they have been appreciated;
and we think that the subjects
debated upon compare very favorably with those of any previous
The society has had only one
concert at which a collection has
been taken, the result being that
the amount standing to its credit
is slightly smaller than that of
last year.
The committee wish to take
this opportunity of thanking all
those who have helped to make
this season's meetings a success,
and we look forward to those of
next season being more successful than those of any previous
ye?.r. S. D. Evans.

Trapping Gophers
A correspondent to the Fruit
Grower gives the following
method of trapping gophers:
"I notice a Kansas subscriber
complains about gophers in his
orchard. I have caught a great
many, have tried poisoning and
shooting them, but not with
much success. The best success
I have is trapping them and it
never fails. My method is to
use the common snap steel rat
trap, costing ten cents each.
Find a new mound, take a spade
and dig down to his runway and
follow the hole until you come to
where his runway parts; this will
be about two feet, for it is never
over two feet from the new
mound. Set the trap at this intersection and fasten it, sprinkle
a little dust or dirt over it, cover
the hole with a piece of board or
| tin and then put dirt over this so
not the least bit of light enters.
It never fails to catch them.
Set a dozen traps and in the
morning you will have a dozen
gophers. I have caught fifty in
this way in four days on eight
acres of alfalfa. I would be
pleased to answer or give any information to any one on this subject. Some times the gophers
will burry the trap and fill the
hole with dirt. Just clean it out
and reset the trap, and it will
only need a few efforts until he
is caught."
How much timber is there in
Canada? A recent estimate
gives six hundred billion feet.
This seems an enormous quanity,
but it would last a very short
time if Canada were generally
drawn upon for a timber supply;
at their present rate of consumption the United States alone
would consume that quanity in
about fifteen years.
As matter of fact few reliable
data exist from which it is possible to estimate Canada's forest
resources. Even the number of
acres of timberland in this
conutry is not known with any
degree of accuracy, and even the
experts disagree widely, though
they unite in placing it considerably below former estimates.
The present is just the time
for Canada to "take stock" of
of her timber resources, not to
mention her natural wealth. Her
natural resources have not yet
been dissipated to very large extent, and if Canadians now
secure an estimate of their wealth
in natural resources, they can,
by economical use of then, avoid
much of the waste such as other
nations have made.
For many years the United
States has lavishly distributed its
national wealth. But during the
past few years thoughtful men in
that nation have begun to see
that they must economize. As a
result, after a conference of
governors of the several states,
scientific experts, leaders in commerce and transportation and
others, in May last, President
Roosevelt appointed a ' 'conservative Commission" to make a
thorought investigation of the
national resources contained in
the forests, the mines, the soil
and the streams (both for water-
supply and for transportation).
The commission has since then
been at work, and during the
second week of December reported at a meeting similar to the
preceding their appointment.
In order to afford a fair chance
for the economical administration
of Canada's forests, a similar inventory of her timber wealth
should be made. Present ideas
of the amount of timber in the
Dominion are based almost entirely on reports of those who
have traveled along the chief
waterways. Men who have gone
in some distance from the streams
report that the timber becomes
much smaller and more scattered
as one gets away from the river.
This is the case, indeed, in all
What is needed is a systimatic
exDloration of the whole unexplored region, (the country at
a distance from streams as well
as that along the water-courses)
by men familiar with the work
of estimating timber. Full and
accurate reports of such explorations will serve to clear up much
misconception reguarding the extent and amount of Canada's
forest land, just as the exploration made in Northern Ontario
in 1900 cleared up the ideas formerly held as to the value of Ontario's hinterland.

coasts,  while South Africa has
subsidized the Imperial navy
with cash to some extent. So
far Canada has done nothing.
There are no doubt wide differences of opinion in Canada as
that every number of the lengthy
programme was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The programme was as follows:

However, Canada is old enough
and rich enough to look after the
defense of her own coasts, and
should do so as Australia has
decided to do. The time will
come when the foreign trade of
Canada will warrant her contributing towards the support of the
navy of the empire, but when
that time comes another question
will be involved, that of representation in the imperial parliament. Under a system of imperial federation, every part of the
empire would contribute toward
the support of the navy for every
part would then have a voice in
the control of that navy.

The Keremeos Trumpet says :
"There are a crude lot of
'knockere' in Penticton. They
under-estimate the intelligence
of the man from the prairie and
frequently make themselves appear very ridiculous.''
The Trumpet speaks with its
usual show of knowledge. How
many times has the editor of
that august journal been in Penticton? Has he ever spent a day
here, or what does he really
know about the place or its
psople ? Penticton is the one
tnwn in the district that does
not "knock." The Trumpet has
evidently been listening to the
plaints of Keremeos real estate
agents who attempt to excuse
their   invidious   "knocking"   of

Are extensive prrowers of all kinds of Fruit Trees. Shrubs, Roses, ami Ornamental Trees, ami
the members of th��,finn are all practical nurserymen of 25 years experience, and have built up
the'most successful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The.ffrowinK of the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with Ihe work, is
personally euperintended by the individual members of the linn, and they work on the plan that
the best is none too ffood for their customers.
We have made larpre shipments of trees Into tlie Okanagan Valley and can pive the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are frrown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of the Oknnaifan Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited tu the needs ot
planters there, than are the Coast stock, beinir more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of fibrous roots, which count for much in making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one, ... ... .,,.
We shall be pleased to hear from prospective planters, with a view to supplying them with
the best wrade of trees, true to name.
We wish to secure the services of a jrood reliable man to represent us at Penlicton and

"Hut I must see him." she insisted.
"It's wbnt brought me here. I Oil

As they stepped outside the door of
an adjacent cabin opened, framing an
lingular, sharp featured woman, who,
cinching sight of llie girl emerging
from (ilenisier's stateroom, paused,
with shrewdly narrowed eyes flashing
quick, malicious glances from one to
the other, 'ihey came later to reineiu-
liur with regret thin chance encounter,
for it was fraught witli grave results
for them both.
"Good evening. Mr. Glenlster," the
lady said, with acid cordiality.
"Howdy,     Mrs.    Chnmpiau?"     He
moved away.
She followed a step, staling at Helen.
"Are   you   going   ashore   tonight   or

"Don'l know yet. I'm sure." Then
aside to the girl he muttered, "Shake
her; she's spy. lug ou us."
"Who Is she?" asked Miss Chester a
moment later.
"Her husband manages one of the
big companies.    She's nu old cat."
Gaining her lirst view of the land,
the girl cried out sharply. They rode
oil au oily sea tinted like burnished
copper, while ou all sides, amid th,'
faint rattle and rumble of machinery,
scores of ships were belching cargoes
out upon living swarms of scows, tugs.
stern wheelers and dories. Here and
there Eskimo oomiaks, fat. walrus hide
boats, slid about like huge, many legged water bugs. An endless, antlike
stream of tenders, piled high with
freight, plied to aud from the shore.
A mile distuut lay the city, stretched
like a white ribbon between the gold
of the ocean sand and the dun of th;
moss covered tundra. It was like no
other In the world. At first glance It
seemed all made of new white canvas-,

"That's Anvil creek up yonder." said
Olenlster. "There's where the Midas

buttress of mountains rolling back
from the coast. "It's the greatest

ferryman with eager questions. Having arrived live days before, he was
exploding witli information and volunteered the fruits of his ripe experience
till Dextry stated that they were
"sour doughs" themselves and owned
the Midas, whereupon Miss Chester
marveled at the awe which sat upon
the man and the wondering stare with
which he devoured the partners, to
her own utter exclusion.
"SuD'erin' cats! Look at the freight!"
ejaculated Dextry, "If a storm come
up. It would bust the community!"

Leaving the skiff, Ihey plunged into
turmoil. Dodging through tlie tangle,
ihey came out into fenced lots where
tents stood wall lo wall and every
inch wns occupied. Here and there
wus a vacant spot guarded jealously
by its owner, who gazed sourly upon
all men with the forbidding eye of
suspicion. Finding an eddy in the
co.ifuslon, the men stopped.
"Where do you want to go?" they
nsked Miss Chester.
There was uo longer in Glenlster'a
glance that freedom with which he
had come to regard the women of the
north. He had come to realize dully
thnt here was a girl driven by some
strong purpose Into a position repellent lo her. In a man of his type her
independence awoke only admiration,
and her coldness served but to inflame
him the more. Delicacy in Olenlster
was lost in �� remarkable singleness of
purpose, He could laugh nt her loathing, smile under her abuse nnd remain
Utterly ignorant Hint anything more
thnn his action in seizing her that
night lay nt the bottom of her dislike.
He did not dream that he possessed
characteristics abhorrent to her, and
he felt n keen reluctance nt parting.
She extended both bands.
"I can never thank you enough for
whnt you have done���you two���but 1
shnll try.   Goodby!"
Dextry gazed doubtfully at his own
hand, rough and guaiiy, then Inking
hers as he would have handled a robin's egg waggled it limply.
"We nin't goin' to turn you adrift
thls-a-wny. Whatever your destination
Is. we'll see you to It."
"I can find my friends," she assured
"This is tlie wrong latitude in which
to dispute a lady: but. knowin' this
camp from soup to nuts, as I do. I su'-

"Very well. I wish to find Mr. Struve
of Dunham & Struve, lawyers."
"I'll take you to their offices," said
Olenlster. "You see to the baggage,
Dex. Meet me nt the Second Class in
half nn hour, nnd we'll run out to the
Midas." They pushed through the tnu-
gle of tents, past piles of lumber and
emerged upon the main thoroughfare,
which ran parallel to tbe shore.
Nome consisted of one narrow street,
twisted between solid rows of canvas
aud half erected frame buildings, its
every other door lhat of a saloon.
There were fair looking blocks which
aspired to the dizzy height of three
stories, some sheathed lu corrugated
iron, others gleaming nnd galvanized.
Lawyers' signs, doctors', surveyors',
were lu the upper windows. The street
was thronged with men from every
land. Helen Chester heard more dialects than she could count. Laplanders
in quuiut three cornered padded caps
idled past. Men with the tan of the
tropics rubbed elbows with yellow
haired Norsemen, and near l.er a carefully groomed Frenchman with riding
breeches and monocle was ',n tauto-
mlme with a skin clad Kskimo. To
her left was the sparkling sea. alive
with ships of every class. To her right
towered timberless mountains, unpeopled, unexplored, forbidding and desolate, their hollows Inlaid with snow.
On one hand were tlie life and the
world she knew, on the other silence,
mystery, possible adventure.
The roadway where she stood was a
crush of sundry vehicles from bicycles
to dog hauled wnter carts, nnd on all
sides men were laboring busily, tlie
echo of hammers mingling with tbe
cries of teamsters and the tinkle of
music within the saloons.
"And this Is midnight!" exclaimed
Helen breathlessly. "Do they ever
"There Isn't time. This Is n gold
stampede. You haven't caught the
spirit of It yet."
They climbed the stairs In a huge
Iron sheeted building to the office of
Dunlin in &- Struve. nnd In answer to
their knock a red faced, white haired,
tousled mnn In shirt sleeves and stocking feet opened the door.
"What d'ye wan'?" be bawled, his
i��gs wavering uncertainly. His eyes
were heavy and bloodshot, his lips
loose, nnd his whole person exhaled alcoholic fumes like n gust from a still
house. Hanging lo the knob, he strove
vainly to solve the mystery of his suspenders, hiccoughing intermittently.
"Humph! Been drunk ever since I
left?" questioned Glenlster.
"Somebody mus' have tol' you." the
lawyer replied. There wus neither curiosity, recognition nor resentment in
his voice. In fact, his head drooped
wo that he paid no attention to the
girl, who had shrunk back at sight of

but dismissed that. She undertook to
decline his aid, but he was halfway
down the stairs and pnld no attention
to her beginning���so she followed him.
It was then that Helen Chester witnessed her first tnr-edy of the frontier
and through It came to know better
the mnn whom she disliked and with
whom she had been thrown so fateful
ly. Already she hud thrilled at the
spell of this country, but she had not
learned that strength nnd license carry

Besides the universal tension, there

Witli the quickened eye of experience

I am placing on the market a
large tract of the tinest fruit
lands ever offered to the public,
upon which I am constructing a
pressure pipe system of irrigation. Upon completion of this
work this will be the first place
in Canada where lot holders will
have irrigation water under pressure and enjoy beautiful domestic water in their homes the year
These lands stretch for over
four miles along the west shores
of Dog Lake, which is four miles
south of Okanagan Lake. The
location is a picture of fascinating charm and loveliness. Here
there are hundreds of acres of
beautiful prairie slopes surrounding a very pretty townsite on a
charming lake beach
For a suitable name for this
place I will give a building lot in
this townsite. Each proposed
name must be accompanied by
five names and addresses of persons who wish to become interested in fruit culture in the
Okanagan Valley.
Dr. Sawyer and Professor
Perry, of Okanagan College,
Summerland, have kindly consented to select the most suitable
name from amongst those submitted.
Competition closes April 7th.
