would thus be obtained.

The Board of Trade held its
quarterly meeting on Wednesday
night. It was decided to have
tests made of water from the
reservoirs on Penticton and Ellis
Creeks, from the North Fork of
Ellis Creek and from Okanagan
Lake, this in view of the contemplated installation of a domestic
water system. A committee
comprising Messrs, Hunter, Kendall Shatford, Mutch and Clement was appointed to go fully
into the question of forest preservation for water conservation
purposes, to collect data, and to
make representations to the Legislature with a view to having a
reservation wade of. all the lands
at the heads of the streams flowing into Okanagan Lake and River between Kelowna and the International Boundary Line. The
cemetery question was also discussed.
Obituary.
The friends of Mrs. E. S.
Fraser and Mrs. E. F. Handy, of
Hammond, will regret to learn
of the death of their father, John
E. Shatford, which occurred at
his home, Hubbards, Nova Scotia.
Mr. Shatford was a retired business man, prominent both in the
city of Halifax and in the community in which he resided. He
leaves a large family, among
whom are A. W. Shatford, of
Hubbards; J. F. and S. S. Shatford, managers of the Imperial
Oil Co. for the Province of Nova
Scotia, and A. H. Shatford, a
successful cotton broker, of the
firm of Hayward, Clark & Co.,
New Orleans. He was an uncle
of Mr. L. W. Shatford, M.L.A.
for Penticton. The Halifax dispatch announcing Mr. Shatford's
death in the Province last Saturday was inadvertently headed
"Former Gamewarden Dead,"
The position of warden referred
to was that of head of the various
councils of the municipality, an
office which deceased held for a
number of consecutive terms. ���
Vancouver Province.
Municipal Council.
Meeting held Friday, Oct. 8th.
! The Reeve and all the Councillors
! present. The minutes of last
I meeting adopted.
A deputation representing
j property owners and residents
on the Bench presented a petition
to the Council protesting against
the acquisition of Lot (S!) for a
cemetery site, and Mr. H. W. D.
Smith and Captain Stevens addressed the Council in support of
the petition. Mr. L. C. Barnes,
as chairman of Parks and Cemetery committee expressed his
opinion that the selection of a
suitable cemetery site had been
deferred long enough, and that
he thoroughly endorsed the action
of the special committee in choosing the site which appeared to
them the most suitable. Messrs.
Power, Murk and Hatch also
spoke on the subject, and after
some discussion the Reeve informed the deputation that as
the site had already been negotiated for, the only condition on
which the Council could alter
their decision to select this lot
would be for the objectors to
buy the site from the Council at
the same price as had been paid
for it, and for a committee of
the people of the town to select
a site for themselves, which,
however, would have to obtain
the sanction of the Council if
situated within the municipal
limits. After thanking the Council for their consideration the
deputation withdrew.
The following accounts were
passed and ordered to be paid:
Board of Works payroll $39.00;
W. R. King & Co. $3.10; H.
Main $1.65; S. C. Smith Lumber Co., Ltd., $5.50; W. J. Clement $8.50; Dignan & Weeks $11;
J. W. Edmonds $3.00; C. Were
$31.50; Moore Light Co. $180.00.
The special committee appointed to wait on the S. O. Land Co.
re the terms of the agreement as
regards the recreation grounds,
reported that the clauses objected to had been eliminated.
Power-Hatch, that the necessary repairs for street lamps be
ordered forthwith.    Carried.
Hatch-Barnes, that Mr. J. F.
Tupper be engaged at a salary of
$15.00 per month to look after
the municipal street lamps. Carried.
Power-Barnes, that the Clerk
be instructed to write to F, H.
Latimer asking him to name a
date when he can make the
necessary investigations re water
and other matters requiring engineer's advice.    Carried.
Barnes-Power, that the Board
of Works be authorized to place
necessary railings on Smith
Street sidewalks.    Carried.
The meeting adjourned.
A Thanksgiving ball will be
given in Steward's Hall on Oct.

National Apple Show.
Spokane, Wash., Oct. 14.���Ren
H. Rice, secretary-manager of
the National Apple Show, Inc.,
has issued a circular letter for
the information of Canadian exhibitors regarding customs entries, duty and consular certificates on exhibits for competition
at the second show in Spokane,
November 15 to 20, when $25,000
will be distributed in prizes and
premiums in 20 classes, ranging
from a full carload to a single
plate of five apples. British Columbia carried off its share of
honors at the first exposition in
this city last December, and it is
expected that many growers will
be represented at the coming
competition. The text of Mr.
Rice's letter follows:
$1.00 Per Year In Advance
1. Exhibits can be shipped
from Canada, shown at the Second National Apple Show and returned to point of shipment free
of duty, provided the following
instructions are carefully followed out.
2. All shipments should be
made through one of the following points on the International
Boundary Line Eastport, Idaho;
Blaine, Sumas and Seattle, Washington, and addressed distinctly
"National Apple Show, Spokane,
Washington, in bond." Shipments made through other ports
will possibly be subject to duty
before permitted to cross the
Line.
3. Exhibits valued at less than
��100 do not require a cnnsular's
certificate, but the regular bill of
lading and invoice must be forwarded to Spokane for presentation to the collector of customs
at time of arranging bond.
4. As soon as exhibitors have
decided definitely on the variety
and extent of their exhibits, and
provided same is over $100 in
value, particulars must be given
to the nearest United States
Consul or Consular agent, and a
consular invoice obtained from
him, a copy of which must accompany shipment. Consuls or
Consular agents are stationed at
the following Canadian centres:
voncouver, Fernie, Nelson, Leth-
bridge and Calgary. It is very
important that the consular invoice be obtained as early as possible before shipment is actually
made, so that serious delays will
be avoided.
5. At the time shipment is due
to arrive in Spokane, and if exhibitor is not already represented
there, the secretary of the Second
National Apple Show will attend
to the customs entries, arranging
of bond, etc., provided he is
notified and the bill of lading,
invoice and consular certificate
(if over $100 value) are forwarded to him.
6. If the apples exhibited are
sold in the United States, they
will be subject to a duty of 25c.
per bushel.
7. Exhibitors desiring to sell
their apples after the closing day
of the Show, will please notify
the Secretary in good time.

Investment   Opportunities   That
are Sometimes Overlooked.
In this western country speculation often blinds otherwise
thoughtful and careful business
people to the investment possibilities of enterprises that are
essential to the life of the country. There is much food for reflection in the thought that the
people of British Columbia use
one million dollars worth of soap
annually. As investors, we may
not be interested in soap particularly, but we are interested in(

which the possibilities are very
easily overlooked. The fact that
a million dollars worth is used in
British Columbia alone, is enough
to make one pause and investigate.
Less than a year ago the Western Soap Co.,   Ltd.,   began the
manufacture of Lighthouse Soap
in Vancouver.    Within that time
the demand for the product has
increased so that it is now equal
to about three times the. present j
capacity of their factory.     This j
increase has made necessary the
building of a new factory, and i
for  this   purpose   the   Western
Soap Co., Ltd., has been incorporated wilh a capital  of $250,-
000.00,   which   is   divided   into
250,000   shares   of  $1.00  each.
100,000 of these shares are now
being taken by the public at par.
The Western Soap Co., Ltd., is
in an unique position.   The process of manufacture which  they
use is owned by them  exclusively, and it. enables them to manufacture at a lower cost than any
competitors.     This  is a secret
process, but they can sufficiently
explain it to anyone who is  interested enough  to enquire,   to
show   just   where   they   stand.
This process   alone   makes  tre
future of the company unusually '
bright when  once operating in |
their new factory, and in a measure keeping pace  with  the demand.   They can also establish;
j ither   factories   contiguous   toj
other markets, having the advan-
taore  of   competitors   by   their
, cheaper process, or they can sell
| the; right to use this process to
j competitors.    In either case, the
j stockholders are bound to make
j several   hundred   per   cent,   on
their investment when   this   is
' done.
Apart from this, however, the
| present demand for Lighthouse
Soap alone, at a most conservative  estimate,  will   enable   the

Are extensive growers of all kinds of Fruit Treos. Shrubs, Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
the members i ff tlie lirm are all practical nurserymen of 25 years experience, and have built up
the most BUCCi *sful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The gro\ ing of the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with the work, is
personally supi rintended by the individual members of the firm, and they work on the plan that
the best is none too good for their customers.
We have i tode large shipments of trees into the Okanagan Valley and can give the names
of the largest p   imtera in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees ; re grown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of the Ol umjjajs Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, ti in are the Coast stock, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of fibro'uH . or;ts, which count for much in making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one. . , .....

wh'ch .Ine (-buckled at first, wilh his
head COCked lo oue side, grew very
soon, to liis amazement, to wear n mi
pernnlural similarity to actual fulfill
ment.   ills friend* brought  him tbelr
own friends such as hid sinned against
Ihe laws of Canaan, those under the
ban of the sheriff, those who had
hcriicv ;n auger, u.oso woo u-.n, licit-*
at ulght, those who owed and could
not puy. those who lived by tbe dice,
and lo his other titles to notoriety was
ridded that of defender of lhe poor
aud wicked. He found his bauds full
especially after winning his first Im
porta ut case, on which occasiou Ca
nnan thought the jury mad and was In
dlfflianf with the puzzled Judge, who
could uot see Just bow it bad happened
.loe did not stop at that. He kept on
winning cases.clearing the inuocentand
lightening the burdens of tbe guilty
He became tbe most dangerous at
torney for the defeuse iu Canaan. His
honorable brethren, accepting the pop-
ular view of hlin, held him iu personal
contempt, but feared him profession
ally, for he proved that he kuew more
law thau tbey thought existed. Nor
could any trick him. failing which
many tempers were lost, but nevei
Joe's.' His practice was not all criliii
mil, as shown by the peevish outburst
of the eminent Buckalcw (Ihe squire's
nephew, esteemed the foremost lawyer
iu Canaan). "Before long there won't
he any use trying to foreclose a mortgage or collect a note unless this shyster gets himself in jail!"
The wrath of Judge Martin Pike was
august-there was a kind of sublimity
in Its Immenseuess���ou a day when it
befell that tbe shyster stood betwixt
him and money.
That was a monstrous task���to stand
between these two aud separate them,
to hold hack the band of Martin Pike
from what it had reached out to grasp,
It was iu the matter of some t.1 titles
which the magnate had acquired, and
in court Joe treated the case with such
horrifying simplicity that it seemed almost credible that the great man had
counted upon the Ignorance aud be-
sotteduess of Joe's client, a hard drinking, disreputable old farmer, to get bis
land away from him without paying
for it. Low, as every one knew, such
a thing to be ludicrously impossible, it
was at once noised abroad in Canaan
lhat Joe had helped to swindle Judge
Pike out of a large sum of money���it
was notorious that the shyster could
bamboozle court and Jury with his
tricks, and It was felt that Joe Louden was get1' into very deep wa
ters indeed. . uis, was serious. If
tbe young man did not look ..out he
might find himself in the penitentiary.
Joe did not move into a larger office; he remained In the little room
with its one wiudow and its tine
view of the Jail. Tils clients were
eearly all poor, and many of his fees
quite literally nominal. Tatters and
rags came up the narrow stairway to
his door���tatters aud rags and pitiful
fineries; the bleared, the sodden, the
flaunting and rouged, the furtive aud
wary, some In rags, some In tags and
some���the sorriest���in velvet gowns.
With these, the distressed, the wrongdoers, the drunken, tbe dirty and the
very poor, his work lay aud his days
aud nights were spent.
Wheu Joe went about the streets he
ivas made to feel his condition by tho
elaborate avoidauce, yet furtive at
tention. of every respectable person he
met, and when he came home to his
small rooms aud shut the door behind
him he was as one who has beeu
hissed aud shamed In public and runs
lo bury bis hot face lu his pillow. He
petted his mongrel extravagantly (well
he might| aud would sit with him in
his rooms at night holding Jong con
verse with hlin. the two alone together. The dog was not his ouly eon-
lidant. There came to be another, a
more aud more frequent partner to
their conversations, at last a familiar
spirit. This third came from a brown
jug which .loe kept on a shelf tu his
bOUroom, a vessel too frequently replenished. When tlie days work Was
doue he shut himself up. drank alone
aud drank hard. Sometimes when the
jug ran low and the night was lute he
would go out for a walk with his dog
and would awake In his room the next
morning not remembering where he
had gone or how be had come home.
Once, after such a lapse of memory,
he woke amazed to And himself at
Beaver Beach, whither, he learned
from the red bearded man, Uappy Fear
had brought him, having found bim
wandering dazedly In a field near by
These lapses grew more frequeut until
there occurred that which was oue of
the strange things of his life.
It was a June night, a little more
than two years after bis return to
Canaan, and the Toes|i\ had that day
announced the approaching marriage
of Eugene Bantry and bis employer's
daughter, .loe ate nothing during the
day and went through bis work clumsily, visiting the bedroom shelf at inter
vals. At 10 In the evening he went oul
tti have the jug refilled, but from the
uonieiit he left his door und the fresh
air struck bis face he bad uo clear
knowledge of what he did or of what
went  on about him  until  he woke lu

see. though his eyes were open, could
not have told himself any more than
a baby could tell why it laughs, but it
seemed something so beautiful and
wonderful that tbe ulght became u
night of perfume, its breezes bearing
the music of harps nnd violins, while
nightingales sang from the maples that
bordered tbe streets of Canaan.
CM APT Kit X.
HE woke to the light of morning
amazed and full of a strange
wonder because he did not
know what had amazed him.
A chime of bells sounded from a church
steeple across the square, ringing out
in assured righteousness, summoning
Ihe good people who maintained them
to come and sit beneath them or be
taken to task, and they fell so dismally upon Joe's ear that he bestirred himself aud rose, to tbe delight of his mongrel, who leaped upou him joyfully.
An hour later or thereabout the pair
emerged from the narrow stairway nnd
stood for a moment, bliuklng In Uie
fair sunshine, apparently undecided
which way to go. The church bells
were silent. There was no breeze. The
air trembled a little with the deep pipings of the organ across the square,
and. save for that, the town was very
quiet. The paths which crossed the
courthouse yard were flecked with
steady shadow, the strong young foliage of the maples not moving, having
the air of observing the Sabbath with
propriety. Tbe organ ceased to stir
the air. and all was In quiet, yet a
quiet which for Louden was not peace.
He looked at his watch and. without
Intending It. spoke the hour aloud. "A
quarter past 11." The sound of hli
own voice gave him a little shock.
fl" rose without Knowing why. and fll
lie did so it seemed lo him that hf.
heard close to his ear another voice, a
.voinan's, troubled and Insistent, bul
���lear and sweet, saying:
"Remember! Across Main street
nrldgc at noon!"
it was so distinct that he started and
milked round. Theu he laughed. "I'll
lie seeing circus parades next." Ills
laughter (led. for louder than the ringing lu his ears, unmistakably came tlie
strains of a faraway brass band which
had no existence on land or sea or In
the waters under the earth.
"Here!" lie said to the mongrel. "We
need a walk. I think. Let's yon and
tne move ou before the camels turn
the corner."
��� The music followed him to tbe street,
where he turned westward toward the
river, and presently as he walked on,
fanning himself with his straw hat, it
laded and was gone. But the voice be
had heard returned.
"Remember! Across Main street
bridge at noon!" it said again close to
his ear.
This time he did not start. "All
right." he answered, wiping his fore
head. "If you'll let me alone, I'll be
there."
At a dingy saloon corner near the
river a shabby little man greeted him
heartily and petted the mongrel. "I'm
mighty glad you didn't go, nfter nil.
Joe," he added, with a brightening
face.
"Go where, Happy?"
Mr. Pear looked grave. "Don't yon
ree'lect meetin' me last night?"
Louden shook his head. "No. Did
I?"
The other's jaw  fell, nnd  his brow
corrugated with self reproach.    "Well,
i if that dou't show what a thick head 1
nm! I thought ye was all right er I'd
enne on wilh ye. Nobody c'd 'a' waived stralghter ner talked stralghter.
Snid ye was goin' to leave Canaan fer
good and didn't want nobody to know
il. Said ye was goin' to take the 'leveti
o'clock through train fer the west and
told mc I couldn't come to the deepo
with ye. Said ye'd had enough o' Canaan nnd of everything. I follered ye
part way to the deepo. but ye turned
and mnde a motion fer me to go back,
and I done it because ye seemed to be
kind of in trouble, nnd I thought ye'd
ruther be by yerself. Well, sir, it's
one on tne."
"Not at all," sold Joe. "I was all
right."
"Was ye?" returned the other. "Do
remember, do ye?"
"Almost." Joe smiled faintly.
"Almost," echoed Happy, shaking bis
bead serious'y. "I tell ye, Joe. ef 1 was
you"- he began slowly, then paused
and shook his head again. He seemed
ou the point of delivering some advice.
but evidently perceiving tbe snobbishness of such a proceeding, or else convinced by his owu experience of the
futility of It, be swerved to cheerfulness;
"1 hear the boys is all goin' to work
hard fer the primaries. Mike says ye
got some chances ye don't kuow about.
He swears ye'll be the next mayor of
Canaan."
"Nonsense! Polly and nonsense. Happy! That's the kind of thing I used to
think when I was a boy. But now���
pshaw!" Joe broke off with a tired
laugh. "Tell tbem not to waste their
time! Are you going out to the Beach
this afternoon?
The little man lowered bis eyes
moodily. "I'll be near.there," he said.
scraping bis patched shoe up and down
the curbstone. "That .feller's in towu
ag'in."
"Whnt fellow?" ���
" 'Nashville' they call him. Ed's the
name he give the hospital. Cory���him
tbat I soaked the night you come back
to Canaan. He's after Claudine to git
his evens with me. He's made a raise
somewhere's and plays the spender.
Aud her���well, I reckon she's tired
waitiu' table at tbe National House,
tired o' me, too. I got a hint tbat
they're goiu' out to the Beach together
this afternoon."
Joe passed his hand wearily over his
aching forehead. "I understand," ho
said, "aud you'd better try to. Cory's
laying for you, of course. You Bay he's
after your wife? He must have set
about it pretty openly If they're going
to the Beach today, for there Is always
a crowd there on Sundays. Is ft hard
for you to see why he's doing It? It's
because he wauts to make you jealous.
What for? So tiiat you'll tackle him
again. And why does he want that?
Because he's ready for you!" I
The other's eyes suddenly became
bloodshot, his nostrils expanding incredibly. "Ready, Is he? He better bo
ready.  I"���
"That's enough!" Joe interrupted
swiftly. "We'll bave no talk like that.
I'll settle this for you myself. You
send word to Claudine that I want to
see her at my office tomorrow morning,
and you-you stay away from the
Beach today.   Grive me your word."
Mr. Fear's expression softened. "All
right Joe," he said. "I'll do whatever you tell me to. Any of us 'II do
that; we sure know who's our friend."
"Keep out of trouble, Happy." Joe
turned to go and they shook hands.
"Good day, and���keep out of trouble!"
When he had gone Mr. Fear's countenance again gloomed ominously, and,
shaking his head, he rumliiatlvely entered an adjacent bar through the alley door.
The Main street bridge was an olrt
fashioned wooden covered oue. dust
colored and very narrow, squarely
framing the fair open country beyond,
for tbe towu had never crossed tbe
river. Joe found the cool shadow in
the bridge gracious to his hot brow,
and through the slender chinks of the
worn flooring he caught bright glimpses
of running water. When he came out
of the other end he felt enough refreshed to light a cigar.
"Well, here I am," he said, "across
Main street bridge, and it must be
getting on toward noon!" He spoke
almost with the aspect of daring and
immediately stood still listening. " *B��-
mcinber,' " lie ventured to repeat,
again daring- ���"'remember! Across*
Main street bridge at uoon!'" And'
agaiu he listened. Then he chuckled
faintly with relief, for the voice did
uot return. "Thank Cod, I've got rid
of that!" he whispered. "And of the
circus band too!"
A dusty road turned .''to the right, following the river nud shaded by big
sycamores on the bank. The mongrel,
intensely preoccupied with this road,
senmpered away, his nose to too
ground. "Good enough." said tho
master. "Lend ou and I'll come after
you." -I
