Penticton was this week honored by a visit from the Hon.
Sidney Fisher, Minister of Agriculture for the Dominion, accompanied by Senator Bostock. Af-'
ter having visited Summerland
and Naramata, they were met ���
by a livery rig from Penticton
when they, accompanied by A.
H. Wade, Reeve of Penticton,
and J. J. Hunter, President of
the Board of Trade, were driven
over the benches to this point.
Upon their arrival in Penticton, which was about 7 p. m.,
the Minister was banqueted by
the Liberal Association.
When the excellent dinner had
been partaken of by the guests,
the Reeve, after making a few
introductory remarks, read the
following address from the
The Hon. Sidney Fisher,
Minister of Agriculture.
Dear Sir: ���
On behalf of the people of this
community, the Municipal Council desire to welcome you very
heartily to Penticton, and regret
that your itinerary does not permit on a longer visit of this o.cas-
ion. In order that you might
fully appreciate the great more
possibilities and natural resources of this district.
The Municipal Council would
respectfully draw your attention
to one or two matters affecting
the welfare of this town in which
your influence and good oifices
with the government are solicited.
First, we would urge the placing an experimental agricultural
farm at Penticton. Situated as
we are in the midst of the arid
belt of British Columbia, the
value of such an institution to
the large fruit growing districts
of this province cannot be over
estimated, and, as the rainfall in
this district in less than that of
any of the other towns on Okanagan Lake, such an experimental
station would be of the greatest
scientific and economic value to
the Goverment.
The second matter in which we
would ask your kind assistance is
with regard to the acquisition by
this Municipality of an Indian
reserve situated on Main St. Penticton, and consisting of about
160 acres. We would point out
that this piece of land is of practically no use whatever to the Indians, and is located right in the
midst of the Municipality, where
it would be an ideal spot for a
public park. This Council is already in communication with the
Minister of the Interior and the
Indian Department regarding this
matter, and, should this be ob-
tainedt'or the Municipality, Indians would at all times have free
access to the park. The Council
feel sure that, having seen for
yourself the desirability of this
reserve being acquired for the
people of this town, tbey may rely on your assistance in the matter.
The third matter we would lay
before you is the improvement of
the Okanagan River. We appreciate the work that is being carried on by the Government at
present, and would ask that this
work be not lost sight of, and
that further appropriations be
made until the river is rendered
thorougly navigable. With the
development of the country lying
to the south of us proceeding
rapidly, this matter is one which
in the highest degree afFects the
welfare and prosperity of the
whole valley.
Trusting that we may have the
assurance of your support and in
fluence in these several matters.
We are. Dear Sir,
Yours most respectfully.
F. H. Latimer, as President of i
the Liberal Association, read an j
address   from   the   Liberals   to
much the same effect as  that;
from the Council.   J. J. Hunter, j
repiesenting the Board of Trade,
and W. J. Clement,  the Press, |
spoke briefly further emphasizing the requirements of the district, particularly as applied to
the establishment of an experimental farm, and the settlement
of the Indian reserve question.
In reply Mr. Fisher expressed
himself as particularly fortunate
in visiting the Okanagan at a
tirfre when such great developments were taking place. He
had heard a great deal about the
Okanagan, and had determined
to see it when he came west.
Great as had been his expectations before coming here, they
had been surpassed by what he
had seen. By the application of
water the soil had been made
marvellously productive, and he
believed that, with the greedy
market that existed in the Northwest, fruit growing would be a
very profitable industry. The
growers need not be afraid of
overproduction for the next
twenty, or fifty, years. All that
was required was to see that the
fruit was put on the market in
as good, or better, shape than
that from Washington or Oregon.
He recommended that the fruit
packing be done at a central
packing house, so that uniformity might be obtained and the
packing and grading properly
done. The Minister could not
hold out any prospects regarding
the acquiring of the Main St. Indian reserve on account of the
reversionary rights of the province. Dredging operations
would no doubt be continued on
the river until it was made navigable. As yet, he could not state
where the experimental farm
would be located, but it would be
placed where it would be satisfactory to all. Senator Bostock
followed with a brief speech,
after which the gathering dispersed. Those present were
Hon. Sidney Fisher, Senator Bostock, A. H. Wade, F. H'. Latimer,
J. J. Hunter, Henry Murk, E. W.
Mutch, R. Wilton, W, J. Clement,
M. C. Kendall, A: S. Smith and
W. J. Waterman.
Prof. Craig Lectures.
The best attended, and one of
the most interesting and instructive fruit growers' meetings ever
held in Penticton took place on
Wednesday evening in Steward's
Hall, the occasion beinjr the lecture given by Prof. Craig, of
Cornell University.
Mr. I. M. Stevens occupied the
chair, and Mr. Martin Burrell,
M. P. for Yale-Cariboo, was first
called upon to speak. Mr. Burrell gave a short but encouraging
address to the fruit growers by
wav of introducing Prof. Craig.
The Professor, one of the
best authorities on horticulture
in America, in the course of his
address, dropped many practical
suggestions, and, although unacquainted with local conditions,
the general principles he set
forth could not fail, by intelligent application, to be of benefit.
New light was thrown upon the
subject of the winter killing of
trees, while the selection of nursery stock, tree planting, irrigation, fertilization, tree pests, and
packing and marketing, all came
in for their share in his discussion.
in as good or better shape than
I the fellows in Washington and
Oregon There is no possibility that for a great many
years to come you can overdo the
market or meet the demand."
Yours truly,
M. C. Kendall.
Penticton, Aug. 23,1909.
Survey Completed to Yale.
Wants Better Grade.
(From Similkameen Star.)
It is well known that that the
chief engineer of the V., V. & E.
and other Great Northern officials have a particular dislike for
the Coquihalla route as now sur-
eyed. It is with a view to avoiding this route that Engineer Kennedy with two assistants, Black
and Hogeland, left on Thursday
for the head of Eagle Creek, a
tributary of the Tulameen river.
From the head of this creek to
Unknown Creek there is a long
divide, which, if favorable for
tunnelling, it is said, would save
some thirty miles of heavy construction from the head of Coquihalla Pass to Hope. The party
is piloted by L. Gibson who
knows the country well and is an
experienced packer.
Pile driving is proceeding rapidly on the bridge across the
Similkameen, due to the clocklike work of the machine and
every man knowing his business
and doing it. In another week
or ten days the bridge will be
ready for the horse dump cars
extending the grade onto the
station yard flat.
More men have arrived recently and a big rush is noticeable all
along the line. It is believed
that the raillayers will be here on
schedule time, Oct. 1st.
The Canadian Northern railway is not losing any time in locating its main line between the
Yellowhead pass and Vancouver,
the route map of which, via the
North Thompson and main
Thompson rivers and the Fraser
river, was approved by the minister of railways last February,
Celerity is supposedly stimulated
by the knowledge that the company's engineers, who were the
first on the field, are being closely pressed on the upper portion
of the route by three survey
parties in the employ of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway.
The Canadian Northern, however, occupies the field undis-
durbed on the section between
Kamloops and Vancouver. It
was announced today that two
other engineering parties of the
Canadian Northern have virtually completed the final location of
a line through the Fraser river
"canyon between Lytton and Yale,
a distance of 54 miles. That work
will be actually completed early
next week. So far has it advanced that one of the engineering
parties was to-day transferred to
the task of locating the line below Yale, and will head downstream towards Hope, an important point in this strategic railway fight. From Hope all the
way to New Westminster no serious engineering difficulties are
likely to be encountered as the
Fraser valley widens out, affording ample room for more than
one railway. The route map
of the Grand Trunk Pacific between the Yellowhead and Vancouver has not yet been approved by the railway department
at Ottawa. The application is being vigorously opposed by the
Canadian Northern railway.
To the Editor of The I'knticton 1'kk.ns:
Dear Sir:���As we are often
met by what people, who are
going into fruit-growing think
an unanswerable argument, viz.:
that the Okanagan Valley is going to flood the market with fruit
and lower prices to such an extent as to prevent an orchardist
from making more than a living:
I here append the opinion of Hon.
Sydney Fisher on the subject,
almost in his exact words, given
on his recent visit to Penticton :
"You need not be afraid of
overproduction for the next 20 or
50 years. It is a greedy market,
and a rich market. But you have
to get your fruit on the market

The Dominion regulations relative to the fishing industry in
British Columbia contain a few
clauses of special importance to
inland waters:
The taking of trout of all kinds
is prohibited from November
15th to March 25th following,
except in the waters of the interior of the Province of British
Columbia east of meridian 120,
west longitude, where the taking
of trout of all kinds from November 15th to May 1st following,
is prohibited.
No kind of netting is allowed
in fresh water lakes and on non-
tidal waters.
Salmon under three pounds
must be returned to the water.
Trout under three pounds cannot
be bought, sold, or exposed for
sale in the Province.
It shall be unlawful for any

during the close season the penalty is not less than $250 and not
more than $500 for each animal.

than $25 or more than $100 for
each animal. The general penal- ���
ty for killing other game out of
season is a fine not exceeding
$100 or 30 days' imprisonment,
or both.
There is a popular error that
farmers,  miners and engineers
may kill game at any time for
food.   This is not the case,  as

Uis legs out luxuriously in

  at   his   pipe.    "A  Christinas

a pause. "Who are invited?"
His nephew leaned against the mantelpiece and stuffed his hands iuto his
pockets as be enumerated the guests,
the uncle keeping up a running and
caustic comment:
"Engaged���going to be���introduced
(or matrimonial purposes���engaged���
tbe same." The numeration ceased.
"Yes. 1 see myself helping to chaperon your house party. I stroll iuto
the reception room and stumble over
an engaged couple. I sneak into the
library and am frowned out again by
a newly Introduced couple. 1 bang Into the music room and overhear a proposal. No, thank you, Itoy; I shall

Itoy picked up his hat and moved toward the door. "Modern house parlies
are not conducted along the lines
you've laid down, uncle. Change your
mind and judge for yourself." He
turned the knob. "By the way, I
didn't mention the other chaperon, did
I? It's Mrs. Angell. Bertha's widowed
aunt, you know." With this parting
shot, which lie knew was effective. Roy
discreetly retreated.
After he had gone Merrlwether sat
an hour staring at the fire and pulling
fiway at a smokeless pipe. Then lu
arose and looked earnestly at himself
In the mantel mirror. "We're apt t<
run down," he apostrophized his re
flection; "apt lo ruu to seed, we bachelors. Now. this tie���let's see. it's six
mouths out of style, aud Gertrude used
to be���hum." He stepped to the phone
and called up bis tailor, realizing that
Ills mind had already undergone the
change Hoy hoped for.
Ten days later he arrived at Tin-
Pines just iu time to dress for dinner
He was accompanied by a man aud i<

"you look so line I scarcely knew yon!'
Bertha was his nephew's fiancee and
already claimed relationship iu privab
to the uncle. "I'd make Itoy wea<

Merrlwether, following her Into the

"You surely don't look lhat stout."
begun Bertha and. turning abruptly
toward the entrance, finished with.
"Does he. auntie?"
Gertrude Augell swept past her niece
and met Merriwether's outstretched
hand cordially. "Look? Why, he looks
surprisingly like the Bruce Slerriweth-
er I used lo know so well."
"I'lfteeu years ago," was on the end
of Merriwether's tongue, but he checked himself just in time. Gertrude probably ignored lapses In time us women
have a habit of doing, he thought. But
surely bers was a face, a form, a Itear-
Ing. which hud so successfully with

had not lost Ils luster, nor had her blue
eyes lost aught of their sparkling Interest In life, while she carried herself
with ber old time spring and vivacity.
Merrlwether noted all these things us
he sat opposite her at dinner. His
memory flashed picture after picture
before bim���flic primary days iii their
oltl home school, their grammar room
betrothal, the warm friendship of later
yeors, which had meant something
more to him: then her marriage and

He was just characterizing himself
as "old"' when Ills nephew's voice
aroused him and added point to his
reflection "Tomorrow morning we

hud the pond back here cleared for

added carelessly. "By the way. Uncle
Bruce. I forgot to tell you to. bring
skates along, but I can easily provide
you with a pair."
Merrlwether (pinked Inwardly, but
made no reply until after dinner, when
he bucked bis nephew Into a comer
and addressed him privately uud forcefully. "I've not been on skates for ten

"Ob."' groaned Merrlwether "In that
ease I'll try. but watch out for a repetition of a chapter iu the 'Pickwick
Papers!' " and he turned abruptly Into
the ballroom
"Are yon looking over the scene of

beside him And Mrs. Angell moved

eplied thoughtfully, "it's because they
���nsist on doing youthful things."
"There it is again!" be thought, with
an internal groan. He would be obliged
lo skate and dance und do all tbe olher
uncomfortable things which forty years
anil '.'20 pounds shrink from. Still as
he wa'tched her move about the room
ihe burden of it did not seem so onerous after all.
Therefore he danced not badly, but
laboriously, all the While admiring the
graceful ease of Gertrude Augell's motions.
"At least." he determined resolutely,
"I'll-not be caught skating, as I was
dancing, without a bit of practice." It
was 1 a. in. when he made this resolution and issued the command to his
man. "Peter, get tne up at 7���unless."
in sudden inspiration, "it should he
Promptly at 7 he was awakened in a
rebelliopg frame of mind. "Stiff as a
cart horse," lie grumbled. "I hope it's
snowing like blai.es."
The man raised the shade and looked
out.    "Sky clear as a whistle, sir."
So. wilh his sleep cut short two hours
at both ends of the night, Merrlwether
dragged himself and the pair of skates,
produced by his thoughtful nephew,
out to Ihe pond behind tbe bill. For
an hour he skinned his knees, buinped
his head und disturbed the equanimity
of his temper before he was able to
move alone with moderate speed and
keep his feet under him.
When he went in to breakfast he was
thankful for a few moments alone in
front of u glowing grate lire. He
stretched his aching legs toward the
heat and rubbed the buck of his bead
where u bump was appearing which Is
not laid down in phrenological churls
aud pains from which were darting in
every direction. He listened idly to
voices In the ball until bis attention
was chained by two comments made
just outside the door.
"Isn't she a perfect delight of a .chaperon? And so young too! Sbe can't be
Tbe reply was given hi u doubtful
tone. "Why~e���e. yes, she must lie all
of thirty."
"Forty-one." muttered the listener
doggedly, the light of his new resolve
shining again in bis eyes.
At 10 o'clock the entire party went
out to the pond, nnd Merrlwether sknt-
ed ind skated and skated until liis
teeth were clinched in desperation and
his forehead knitted in his efforts to
hold out as long as Mrs. Angell did.
That he was becoming a mail of one
idea be acknowledged to himself that
afternoon on the sleigh ride. "Whnt
Gertrude dares. I dare." be told himself in feeble jest. That sleighing party was a nightmare to him for days
afterward. The drifts were deep, and
the sleigh was overturned again and
again, generally with Merrlwether at
tbe bottom of the heap, owing to the
fact that sleighs incline readily in the
direction of 220 pounds. Then, to vnry
the monotony of the tip-overs, there
were miles of hillsides with a southerly exposure where the sun bad melted

Merrlwether to'led up fhe slopes, husbanding his wind by maintaining silence, watching Oertrude's elastic steps
ruefully and feeling his resolutions in
respect to youthfulness ooze from his
chilled finger tips.
"All out for our last climb!" cried
Koy as the horses stopped at the foot
of a steep rise.    "This Is our last hill."
"Thank the Lord!" said Merrlwether
devoutly    behind   his    mustache.    He

with never u Ihou'-'ht of lutlgne.
"Tired!" she returned carelessly. "And

That reply, coupled with the day's
unparalleled exertions, turned the tide
uf Merriwether's resolutions. In his
room before dinner lie eased his nching
i-ones in a morris chub ami determined

gel Is presence, ami lie uoticed. too,
with a pang of something very like
jealou-y. tbat Briggs, tbe youngest
man in the party, occupied his spare
moments looking iu ber direction.
"I'll see what the weather promises
for tomorrow." was Ids irresolute comment us he reached bis room at midnight and noted that Peter had obediently packed his things ready for Ihe
9:10 train. "If It should storm, maybe"- was his last conscious thought,
and then he drifted off into a land
where Gertrude spent her Christniases
with him beside a quiet hearthstone
and chuperoued house parties no more.
Next morning, when he awoke, the
snow was driving against the window,
while the wind whistled savagely
through the trees. Merrlwether turned over with a deep grunt of satisfaction. There could be no sleighing no
skating, no tobogganing, such a day
ns this, nnd that niglit wns Christmns
eve and the Christmas tree. He hud
purebqsed an exquisite copy of "Maud"
for Mrs. Angell. It wns a poem they
had once read together, und he won*
dered if his memory of the fnet would
touch her. With these thoughts he
drifted back into sleep, and the morning, train went thundering cityward
without bim.
Bnt bis triumph over the state of the
weather was short lived. At the break-
fast table bis nephew curdled his blood
by the announcement of the plans for
the Chrlslmns trees, which yet stood in
Ihe forest a mile across lots. "Two of
the men nre sick this morning, fellows,
so we'll have to fall into line nnd fetch
the trees," Roy proclaimed, with a relish born of twenty-three years and
warm blood.

wolrbt; he climbed stairs fo fetch packages frrmi the billiard room: he senrch-

At last f'.ie trees were decorated, and
Roy called the party Into the music

dragged himself upstairs for a solacing

Shoving his nching feet Into slippers,
be got himself into n smoking jacket,
lit bis pipe and descended to the library. The library lay back of the living
room, far from the music, and it contained nn inviting couch, at which
Merriwether had looked longingly, but
had not.found time so far to occupy.
He pushed asii'e the curtains at the
entrance wilh u broad sweep of his
hand and stepped within. Then ho
stopped abruptly. The couch was occupied. "I beg your pardon, Gertrude.
I thought you were singing."
'���Singing!" she responded crossly,
struggling into a sitting posture. "Why,
I've uot a shred of voice left to slug

her hand across her eyes iu a gesture
which caused a great light to break In
on Merrlv ether.

Oroville-Wenatchee Construction
To Begin.
A large number of contractors
and sub-contractors has been
concentrated in Oroviile during
the past week. This, together
with statements given out by
those who presume to know, in
dicates that the contract for that
portion of the Oroville-Wenatchee railway lying between Oroviile and Brewster, on the Columbia river, has been let, and
that construction is to begin at
When the work of construction
is once under way, building will
be pushed with all the zeal and
expeditiousness possible. Much
of the route to be built over presents few physical obstacles to
railroad construction. Indeed
with the exception of a few
short stretches much of the grading can be done by scrapers, and
no difficulty is anticipated from
winter weather in the continuation of building. It will require
only a few months to lay the
rails to Brewster, and in all
probability the road will continue
on from that point down the
Columbia river to Wenatchee
next summer. When that link
in the chain is completed Oroviile
will be the same distance from
Seattle as is Spokane, for it is
134 miles from Spokane to Wenatchee, and just 134 miles from
Oroviile to Wenatchee.
This is the branch of the Great
Northern railway that will eventually be extended to Penticton.

The Brown Brothers Company
Nurserymen,   -   of Ontario
Are extenaive growers of all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs, Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
the members of the firm are all practical nurserymen of 26 years experience, and have built up
the most successful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The growing of the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with the work, is
personally superintended 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 made large shipments of trees into the Okanagan Valley and can give the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are grown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of the Okanagan Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are the Coast stock, being 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 grade of trees, true to name.
We wish to secure the services of a good reliable man to represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, and will make liberal terms to the right party, for all, or a part of his time.
Write for terms, prices, etc., to
