Hitherto we have refrained
from publishing anything relative to the damage done the
orchards in the vicinity of Penticton by the unusually hard
winter which has been passed
through. Our object has been
to wait until growing time set in
80 that the exact amount of damage might be ascertained. In
order to gain the required information at first hand, on Tuesday
afternoon we visited a number
of orchards on the bench and the
report here submitted is based
upon what we personally observed, supplemented, in detail,
by conversation with a number
of the growers.
Many of our readers living at
a distance will be pleased to learn
that reports of damage done to
the Okanagan peach orchards
have, at least so far as Penticton
is concerned, been greatly exaggerated. We only hope that
other sections of the great fruit
growing valley of western Canada may have passed through
the winter as well.
We have not seen nor heard of
any damage whatever done to
apple, cherry, plum, prune or
pear trees, either on the bottom
land or on the bench. The damage done to peach trees on the
gravelly land of the bottom has
been considerable, but as out
inspection has as yet been confined chiefly to the bench, where
by far the greater number of
orchards exist, we cannot speak
with authority regarding the
On the bench, Mr. H. Leir's
orchard looks vigorous, both in
leaf and blossom. Mr. A. J.
Christie said he had lost twenty-
five peach trees out of five hundred. Of his Elberta peaches
he had not lost a single specimen, and his apricot and almond
trees had also come through
equally well. Mr. P. H. Eraut
had lost some almonds and thirty
peach trees out of seven hundred
and fifty, but both his apricots
and nectarines caue through all
right. Mr. Glass' peaches seem
to be later in leafing, but we did
not observe any dead trees. Mr.
D. A. Stuart reports only four
dead peach trees out of six hundred. Mr. B. A Shatford said
he had not lost a single peach
tree out of an ordiard of fifteen
hundred. In adcition to this his
trees are loadel with bloom.
The upper portbn of Premier
McBride's orchaid looks fi.ie, but
we were inforned that some
damage was don; to the lower
portion. Mr. C. L. Rogers said
! that no serious danage had been
done his four lundred peach
traes, and that all )thers, including apricots and almond nut
trees had come thrtugh all right.
Along the upper road the orchards looked equaly well if not
! better.    That of Mi, J. H. Munson,  K. C, receivel practically
j no damage and is laden   with
I blossoms.    The lots of C.  W.
|Risteen,   of   Winnipeg,   E.    F.
Bennett, and all  otters in  the
vicinity looked all thai, could be
desired.     Many othei' orchards
belonging   to   absentees   looked
equally well.
i In this review we nave confined onrselves to the older orchards, but the youiger ones,
both from observatioi and report, appear to have- fared as
well as those that lave been
longer planted out.
Regarding the prospets for a
peach crop this yea, we can
only add that the blesoms are
there and the result dpends' upon future weather coriitions.

The Council during the present
week have had teams engaged in
a very necessary work, that of
levelling and grading the streets
between the Hotel Penticton
ton and Armstrong's store.
During certain seasons of the
year the lower portion of this
street has been almost impassable.

The date of the annual fie'd
day at Summerland has been
changed from 24th inst. to Wednesday the 19th instant. All the
competitions will be closed to
outsiders with the exceptions of
the relay race which will be
open to any team. The race will
be a mile in length, and each
team will be composed of four
members. Penticton is invited
to compete in this race.
Spring in the Okanagan has
been about a month later this
year than usual. The days for
over a month have been quite
warm but the nights so cool that
there has been practically no
growth until a week or two ago.
During the past week, however,
the trees have sprung into leaf,
and the fruit trees into blossom.
On Monday the thermometer
registered 87 F. in the shade.
The executive of the Penticton
Aquatic Association met on Monday evening to discuss and formulate plans for future operations. It was decided, if possible, to obtain from the Council
the lease of a portion of the end
of Forbes St. for the erection of
a boathouse. It is purposed to
hold an aquatic celebration at
this point on July 1, and no effort
will be spared to advertise Pen-
ticton's peculiar advantages from
ao aquatic standpoint.
No news items make better
reading than real estate transactions. Besides they act as a
stimulus to the real estate business, We believe it would be to
the interest of each of the local
real estate agents to acquaint
the Press with every property
transaction they make. Nobody
could possibly be ashamed of the
fact that he bought property in
Penticton, and no agent that he
had made a sale. Agents in
other towns are always anxious
to publish the deals they make.
It starts people talking real
estate, creates business and
makes the town look alive.

There is no institution in Penticton that is deserving of more
loyal support than the Board of
Originally this whole region
was heavily timbered, so the
reports of the explorers and
other visitors to the district say,
with the exception of a small
area (eighteen miles in extent)
situated above timber line. "So
numerous and so disastrous have
been the fires following in the
wake of travellers, settlers ana
railways," Mr. MacMillan
ar- j writes ' 'that at present, of the.
i original   212   square   miles   ofj
advertise-1iorest' only 33 square miles re- j
main." Moreover, the timperi
which is easiest to get at is the
first destroyed, and what is left
is situated at high levels and in
other places were it is hard to
get at.
Not only has timber originally j
on the land been  desroyed,   but

Trade.   It has taken the initia
tive in nearly every movement|prodUcing7without'going to an
set on foot for the welfare of
the place.   Its labors have been
constant, and in many instances
have been fruitful of good results.   Through   the Associated
Boards of Trade of the Okanagan, every effort is being made
to secure lower freight rates and
better  transportation    facilities I
for the entire valley.   The incor-1
poration of the district into a |
municipality was first mooted by j
the local board as were the in- j
itial stets towards fire protectibn, J
and numerous other matters of I
local concern.
A Board of Trade is supposed
to be a business me.n's organ-!
ization which exists for the purpose of promoting every interest
of the community. Unfortunately, the local board has not received the support to which it
has been entitled from the business section in general. But for
a few enterprising members
it would have fallen to the
ground long ago.   A small knot,
enormous expense for artificial
planting, more timber (or anything else) on the land has been
taken away. In this Crow's
Nest valley alone there are, out
of the 212 square miles of its
total area, 85 square miles of
such land. Originally covered
by a heavy forest of fir, it is now
a "poor, gravelly prairie, unfit
for agriculture and of very little
use for grazing." One fire alone
does not usually have this effect,
but "a second or third rarely
fails to kill all the forest reproduction" (i. e., the little trees)
"to destroy the remaining seed
trees, to burn off the upper layer
of soil, and leave a desolate
waste," such as the country just
spoken of.
On portions of this area nature
has made a good start toward
creating a new forest. Sixty
square miles of the area are
covered by a dense growth of
young trees, the land so covered

interest and have practically.al-1graveiiy to be fit for agriculture
or   valuable   for   grazing.   All
ways been present at meetings,
It is the desire of the present
executive to increase the interest, to see if more representative meetings cannot be had,
and to that end the annual subscription fee has been reduced
from five dollars to two fifty per
annum. It is now hoped that all
business people, and others interested, will take hold with a
will. The Board purpose advertising the district extensively
and is prevented at the present
time from doing so only by the
lack of funds.
Since Penticton is incorporated
the usefulness of the Board will
be greately increased. The
council will be anxious, on many
occasions, to ascertain the feeling of the business community
on questions confronting them,
and the Board of Trade alone
will be able to express that feeling. The executive, therefore,
earnestly trust that it may receive the active co-oneration of
every member of the community,
in the firm belief that such cooperation may prove of material
interest to all desirous of seeing
Penticton the banner town of
the Ol.anagan Valley.

Forest Fires.
that this area requires in order
that it may again be covered
with dense forests is is protection from fire.
Thus fire-protection is obviou-
1/ the great need of the region,
and the Department of the Interior, through its Forestry
Branch, is devising means to this
end. So far, the measures used
for the protection of the forests
from fire in Canada have consisted of the patrol of the forests by!
rangers, who contsantly travel
through its forest, keep a lookout for fires (often discovering
and extingishing in their beginnings fires which, neglected,
would burn over miles of territory), fight fires and warn campers and travellers against the
careless uss of fire. This patrol
will in all probability form the
system of protection eventually
put in operation, supplemented
by the use ol "look-outs" and
the telephone.

Forestry in Western Canada
(as everywhere else) means far
more than the planting of trees.
The first step in forestry is the
preservation of forests already
existing, and, as far as Canada-
east and west alike���is concerned,
that means the keeping out of
fires. Something in this direction
has already been done in Canada,
but much remains to be dona.
Forest fires in the Rockies,
their effects, and means of preventing them, are discussed by

In the iv-t of the enterprise, and 111*

"Go on. Don't stop the horses. 1

"You'll never put tho^e two together.
Nonsense! Why. the man's a rascal.
I wouldn't let him have her. Besides,
it couldn't be. She'll fl.'id him out. I
love her so much that���tb. my feelings
are too big to talk about." He moved
his hands eloquently. "You can't understand."
"Um-m! I s'pose not," grunted Dextry. but his eyes were level and held

trump cards and warranted to take

red, white or yel'ow."
"If he dares." growled Glenlster.
while his thick brows came forward,
and ugly lines hardened in his, face.
In the gray of the early morning
they descended the foothills into tlif
wide valley of the Nome river anil
filed out across the rolling country to
the river bluffs where, cleverly concealed among the willows, was a
rocker. This they set up, then proceeded fi wash the dirt from the sacks
carefully, yet with tbe utmost speed.
for there was serious danger of discovery. It was wonderful, this treasure of the richest ground since the
days of '49, and the men worked with
shining eyes and hands a-tremble. Tbe
gold was coarse, and many ragged, ye'
low lumps, too large to pass through
the screen, rolled in the hopper, white
the aprons belliol witli Its we'-dit. In
tho pans which they had provided there
grew a glennllng heap of wet. raw gold.
Shortly, by divergent routes, the part
ners rode unnoticed into town and Into
the excitement of tho holdup news,
while the tardy still lingered over
their breakfasts. Tar out In tlie roadstead lay the Roanoke, black smoke
pouring from ber stack. A tug was returning from its last trip to her.
Glenlster forced his lathered hors^
down to the beach and questioned the
longshoremen who hung about.
"No. It's too late to get aboard -
the last tender Is ou its way hack,"
they informed him. "If you want to
go to the 'outside.' you'll have to wait
for the fleet. That only means another
week, and���there she blows now."
A ribbon of white mingled with the
velvet from the steamer's funnel, and
there came a slow, throbbing, farewell
Gleulster's Jaw clicked and squared.
"Quick, you men!" be cried to the
sailor;. "I want the lightest dory on
the beach aud the strongest oarsmen
in the crowd. I'd be back in live minutes. There's a hundred dollars In it
for you if we catch that ship."
He whirled and spurred up through
the mud of the streets. Rill Wheaton
wns snoring luxuriously when wrenched from lis bed by a disheveled man
who shook him Into wakefulness nnd
Into a portion of Irs clothes, with n
Storm of exeltu.l instructions. The
lawyer had neither lime nor opportunity for expo ".illation, for Glenlster
snatched n will e nnd swept into it a
litter of docur ;"its from tlie table.
"Hurry up, mail!" he yelled, ns (he
lawyer dived I' ������-illy nbout Ills office In a rnbbll like hunt for Items.

Glenlster strip: ��� ! off his coat and.

strength to that of the oarsmen. They
crept rapidly out "roni the beach, eat-
*, Ing up the two miles that lay toward
tho ship. He urged the men wltb all

Clinging shirts, tlie muscles stood out

mini shouted at them to begin n'-nln
nnd, seizing n boat hook, stuck It Into
tho aria of his coat.   He waved this
on high while the men redoubled their
efforts. I-'or many moments they hung
In suspense, watching the black hull
ns it gathered speed, an 1 then, m they
were about to cense their effort, a puff
of steam burst from its whistle and
the next m< ment a short tout of recognition reached them. (Jleulster wiped
Ihe moisture from his brow and grinned at Wheaton.
A quarter of an hour later as they
lay heaving Ik'Iow the Bhip's steel sides
he thrust n heavy buckskin sack into
the lawyer's hand.
"There's money to win tlie fight, Bill
I don't know how much, but It's
���noUgb.   Uod bless you.    Hurry buck!'
A bailor cast them a whirling rope,
up which Wheaton clambered; then,
lying the gripsack to its end. they sunt
It after.
"Important:" the young man yelled
at the oiUcer on the bridge. "Government business." He beard a muflled
clang In the engine room, the thrash
of the propellers followed, and the big
ship glided past.
As Glenlster dragged himself up the
beach u|Hin landing Helen Chester called to him nnd made room for him beside her. It had never been necessary
to call him to her side before, and
equally unfamiliar was the abashment
or perhaps physical weariness that led
the young man to sink back in the
warm sand with a sigh of relief. She
noted that for the tirst time the audacity was gone from his eyes.
"I watched your race," she began.
"It was very exciting, and 1 cheered
for you."
He smiled quietly.
"What made you kerp ou after the
ship started? I should have given up
���and cried."
"I never give up atythlng that I
want." be said.
"Have you never been forced to?
Then it Is because you are a man.
Women have to sacrifice a great deal."
Helen expected him to continue lo
the effect that he would never give her
up���it was in accordance with his earlier presumption���but lie was silent,
and she was not sure Hint she llkod
him as well thus as when he overwhelmed her witli the boldness of his
suit. For Clenister it was delightful.

If only she had not the memory o.

Is trying to make amends in the host

of course no woman could care for a
man who would do such n thing" Yet
she thrilled at the thought of tow he
had thrust his body lietween her and
danger, how. but for his quirk, insistent action, she would have failed In
escaping from the pest ship, failed lu
her mission and met death on the nighl
of her landing.   She owed bim much.
"Did you bear what happened to the
good ship Ohio?" she asked.
"No. I've been too busy to Inquire
I was told the health ollieers quarantined her when she arrived, that's nil."
"She wns sent to Egg island wilh

more thnn a month now and may nol
get away this summer."
"What a disappointment for the poor
devils on her!"
"Y'es. and only for vhat you did. I
should be one of them." Helen remarked,
"1 didn't do much," he said. "The
fighting part is easy. It's not half so
hnrd as to give up your property and
lie still wlille" ���
"Did you do that because I asked
you to���because I asked you to pul
aside the old ways?" A wave of compassion swept over her.
"Certainly." ho answered. "It didn't
come easy, but"���
"Oh. I thank you." said she, "I

McNamarn, The rules of Ihe game

She was thinking again. "If only you

"I spent last night at tlie Midas." she
told him. "and rode hack early this

"What holdup?"
"Wily, haven't you beard Hie news?"
"No." he answered steadily. "I Just

"Your claim was robbed. Three men

His simulation of evclted astonishment was perfect, and lie rained a
shower of questions upon her. She

"Y'es. nf course. Did yon think they

There was a:i odd light in her glance,

Then she must suspect���she must know

Again his love for the girl surged to-
multnnusly within him and demanded
expression, But Miss Chester, no longer feeling sure that she had the situation In hand, hnd already started t(
return to llie hotel. "1 saw the mei

Dextry turned buck the blankets, exposing four mooseskin sacks, wet and

At that moment, without warning,

young man jerked the blankets Into

covered the entrance.

"Go   Into   the   back   room,   Cherry;
there's going to be trouble."
"Who's    there?"     Inquired    Dextry
through the door, to gain time.    Suddenly, without a word, the girl elided

empty, which stood in a corner of the
room.     These  stoves,   used   widely   hi

Additional Locals
L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., accompanied by Road Supt. Dear-
dorff, has been spending the last
two or three weeks in various
parts of the Similkameen looking
after the interests of his constituents.
The first fire department
organized in Penticton has gone
out of existence. At a meeting
of the Executive, held Tuesday
afternoon, the equipment together with the funds in the
bank, amounting to $124.60,
was turned over to the municipality. This was deemed the proper
course to take since it will now
be the duty of the municipal
government to look after fire
protection. It was thought fit to
recognize the services of J. W.
Edmonds, the secretary of the Department, and a resolution was
unanimously passed presenting
him with a souvenir valued at ten
dollars. Mr. Edmonds, replied
in a few words, thanking the
Executive for their recozintion
of his work. The equipment
handed over to the council
comprise ladders, ropes, buckets,
a cart and a chemical exting-
Victoria Day at Kelowna.
The first event will be a Marathon Road Race at 10 a. m.,
starting and finishing at wharf,
over a 9 mile course, when prizes
valued at $50, $25, $15 and $10
will be awarded. Open to all

A great city is springing into being in British
Columbia.   It is Prince Rupert���the city of destiny.
Prince Rupert is the terminus of the Grand Trunk
Pacific���the emporium of Northern British Columbia,
Alaska and the Yukon���the centre of the great fishing industry of the north���and destined to be one of
the great commercial and industrial centres of population on the continent.
Between 2,000 and 2,400 lots will be offered for sale
by public auction in Vancouver,  B. C, May 25th to 29th.
T.^rm3: ���r/n-qnrle.'cas'i: bilance one, two and
three years at six per cent, interest. Titles are absolutely indefeasible, which-means, that all titles are
guaranteed by the British Columbia Government.
No city in the making ever presented to the
world greater possibilities than Prince Rupert. What
San Francisco is to California���what Portland is to
Oregon ���what Seattle is to Washington���and what
Vancouver is to Southern B. C., Prince Rupert will
be to the great developing region of the North.
