Okanagan Prosperous.
It is said by financial authorities that the Okanagan country
in British Columbia has stood the
financial stringency this year
splendidly. The people there are
prosperous. The crops have been
unusually good this year, and the
farmers have realized splendid
prices for their products. Fruit
growers are giving their orchards
lots of attention, and the developing stages of the valley have
passed.
At Penticton the conditions are
exceptionally fine. Kelowna is
also a very productive section of
the valley and while it is more
thickly settled than other parts
and has more completely realized
the wonderful possibilities of the
soil, it is not far in advance of
some of the newer sections.
Vernon, too, is growing rapidly. All are prosperous, and the
merchants can pay their accounts
promptly. ���Commercial, Winnipeg.
Local and Personal
A Pointer for Penticton.
[ J. L. Logie, municipal clerk of
Summerland, was in Penticton
on Monday. He states that the
assessment for the Municipality
of Summerland this year amounts
to considerable over a million
dollars, that the rate of taxation
is much lower than in similar
places taxed directly by the government, and yet there is sufficient revenue to meet all requirements. The people of Summer-
land are staunch disciples of
Henry George and have applied
the principles of "single tax,"
no taxes being levied upon improvements, but upon land values
only.
It is hoped later to apply the
principles of municipal ownership to the electric lighting, irrigation and domestic water supply
systems. These, Mr. Logie believes, will in time produce a
large enough revenue to enable
the municipality to eliminate direct taxation altogether. The
best land at Summerland has
been assessed at two hundred
dollars per acre, and range land
as low as five dollars per acre.
Mr. Logie is a firm believer in
incorporation, and is of opinion
that the sooner Penticton follows
the example of Summerland in
that respect the better, it will be
for the place.
Cold Storage.
This week the editor inspected
the cold storage of the Okanagan Nursery Co. The building
is the only one of the kind in the
province, and has been admirably designed to resist extremes
of either heat or cold, the walls
being filled with sawdust to over
a foot in thickness, inside of
which is a four inch air space.
A system of ventilation, by
which the air is made to circulate freely, is provided so that a
normal temperature may be
maintained,
The company have 250,000
roots for grafting packed away
in sand while as many more are
coming in. Sufficient apple scions
to graft 400,000 trees are also in
storage. In addition to this
there are 50,000 roots of various
kinds of currants, 40,000 assorted
grape roots, 15,000 pear roots,
from ten to fifteen thousand
Prunus Samonis, a new kind of
fruit between the peach and the
apricot, and stock from which
about 150,000 peach trees may
be budded.
The company are certainly
making ample preparations to
meet their rapidly growing trade.
Branch nurseries are to be opened
up at Salmon Arm and at Fair-
view during the coming summer.
Remember the Fire Ball on

John Mahoney, of Penticton,
returned home after spending a
week in the Fairview district.
On arriving, he heard the sad
news of the death of his mother.
Deceased lived in Peterboro,
Ont., and was seventy years of
age.
The annual general meeting of
the Board of Trade will be held
in Steward's Hall at 8 o'clock on
Monday evening. Every mem-
per should be present as the
election of officers is to take
place and other business of importance conducted.
Remember the Fire Ball which
will be held in Steward's Hall
next Friday night. Extensive
preparations are being made and
the occasion is expected to be
the event of the season. Be sure
and keep the date open.
Grading is said to be progressing favorably on the Great Northern between Keremeos and
Hedley and will doubtless be
completed before sprinf. The
C. P. R. will have to hurry if it
wishes to get into Princeton first.
Thos. H. Foster arrived from
New Westminster last week to
take the position in the Bank of
Commerce vacated by Mr. Loat.
Mr. Loat, who left a few days
later for Vancouver, will be
missed by those who have learned
his sterling qualities during the
year he has spent in Penticton.
At the regular annual meeting
of the shareholders of the Southern Okanagan Fruit Growers'
Exchange, which was held in the
Woodmen's Hall on Monday evening, W. J. C. Ede, E. W
Mutch, S. J. Kinney, J. W. Macfie, and W. A. McKenzie were
elected directors for the ensuing
year. A detailed report, satisfactory to all the members of the exchange, was given by the president, Mr. Ede.
A very clever operation was
performed at the home of J. W.
Thompson. The subject���a thoroughbred Cockerel which was
crop-bound. While Mr. Thompson nervously held the bird in
check, A. Beard used the knife
in a way that would give credit
to any surgeon. The patient's
progress will be watched with
great interest, notwithstanding
the fact that the bird showed
slight symptoms of collapse up
to the time of writing.
A. Megraw, editor of the Hedley Gazette, spent from Saturday
to Tuesday in Penticton. While
here he enjoyed a drive over the
surrounding country, and also
paid a friendly visit at the Press
office. He was much struck with
the progress the town has made,
as well as with the developments
along the fruit growing line.
The friends and acquaintances
of Mrs. O. E. Tomlin, of Summerland, who has been seriously
ill for some time, and underwent
a critical operation in the removal of a tumor by Dr. C. M. Smith
last week, will be pleased to
learn that she is regaining her
health as rapidly as can be expected.
The Canadian Red Book, recently issued by the Family Herald and Weekly Star, contains a
mass of information about our
country that every Canadian
should know. This book, price
50 cts.; the Family Herald and
Weekly Star, price $1.00; and
the Penticton Press, price $1.00
may be secured for $1.85.
On Tuesday Edward Tronson
appeared before Justice Clement
on a charge of being drunk and
disorderly. Pleading guilty, he
was fined ten dollars and costs,
or three months. He was given
ten days in which to put up the
money. On Wednesday Pierre
Philip, an Indian, was charged
with a criminal offence before
Justices Wade and Mischell. Accused pleaded guilty, and was
finen ten dollars with eight dollars costs.
A new store is shortly to be
opened on Main St., Penticton,
which should prove not only a
success to the proprierors but a
benefit to the whole district.
Ernest Clayton and C. M. Johnston are opening up as Seedsmen,
Florists, and Horticultural Sun-
driesmen. They have obtained
the agency for the whole of the
province of D. C. for one of the
first nurseries and seed establishments in England, purveyors to
H. M. the King, and will be in a
position to supply anything and
everything that fruit growers
and private residents may require in the horticultural line.
See their adv. in this issue.
The stationery printed at this
office is giving the best satisfaction. Last week we printed one
thousand statements for a man,
and by their aid he collected a
small fortune. Two months ago a
man bought of us some note-
paper and envelopes to use when
writing to his sweetheart, and
now he is married. Another
young man forged a check printed at this office, and is in the
penitentiary. Another young
man stole some of our paper to
make cigarettes with���he is dead.
A young lady bought some of our
paper to curl her hair on, and
now she has a beau (we have
only a few packages of this kind
in stock). By using our stationery a person can collect accounts,
tell fortunes, make rain, change
the color of the hair, have teeth
extracted without pain, find out
the name of the future husband
or wife, be successful in business, triumph over enemies, and
get elected to office. Give us a
call.
The Literary
One of the most interesting,
instructive and successful debates
ever held in the Penticton Literary and Debating Society took
place at the Thursday night
meeting. The increase in atten-
lance has been rapidly growing
this year. Numbers who were
never seen at the meetings before, are coming out and taking
part in the debates and after
discussions. The society is beginning to be looked upon as a
town institution rather than that
of a few persons, as it was last
year, and this fact is very encouraging.
The subject for debate was,
"Resolved that travel is more
educative than reading." The
affirmative was taken by Messrs.
Hibbert, Evans and L. Harris,
and the negative by Messrs.
Barker, Tupper and Agnew.
Good speeches were delivered all
round, but, upon summing up
the arguments, the judges, Miss
F. A. MacKinlay, J. R. Mitchell
and S. S. Gordon, gave their decision two to one in favor of the
negative.
The next meeting will be literary in character; several authors
will be discussed and extracts
from their works read.
Struck Oil.
While drilling for coal on
Winkler and Thomas' claim on
Power Creek, Okanagan Lake,
crude petroleum was, during the
past week, struck at about 260 ft
below the surface. Petroleum
is said to be a sure indication
that coal in paying quantities exists somewhere in the district
The drill is now down about 400
ft. and several small seams of
coal have been passed through.
Beds of shale, further indications
of coal, are being passed through
and the promoters are very hopeful of success.

No man is more constantly unhappy, or makes others more so
than the pessimist. He is out of
harmony with things; and ail
things fight and worry him. He
loses the true dignity of life. Ii
every business house will go to
work with a will to convince their
customers that their is no real
caus.2 for suspension of business,
confidence will be restored almost
immediately. Will it not be worth
while'for us all to take a hand in
overcoming this unreasonable-
scare? Conditions are such that
we are sure it can be accomplished if all will put their hands
and minds to the plow. In union
there is strength. Let us try it. ���

Very stealthily we heard it pass
along until it died away in the distance. Then the baronet gently opened
his door and we set out in pursuit. Already our man had gone along until we
lery, and the corridor was all in darkness. Softly we stole along until we
had come into the other wing. We
were just in time to catch a glimpse
of the tall, black-bearded figure, his
shoulders rounded, ps he tip-toed down
tho passage. Then he passed through
the same door as before, and the light
of the candle framed it in the darkness and shot one single yellow beam
across Ihe gloom of the corridor. We
shuffled cautiously towards It, trying
every plank before we dared to put our
whole weight up' :i It. We had taken
the precaution of leaving cur boots behind us, but, even so, the old boards
snapped and croiked beneath our
tread. Sometimes it seemed Impossible
that he should fall to hear our approach. However, ihe n an is fortunately rather deaf, and he was entirely preoccupied in that which he was doing.
When at last we reached the door and
peeped through we found him crouching at the window, candle in hand, his
white, intent face pressed against the
paue, exactly as I had seen him two
nights before.
We had arranged no plan of cam-
pnign but the bironet is a man to
whom the mest direct way is always
the most natural. He walked into the
room, and as he did so Barrymore
sprang up from the window with a
sharp hiss of his breath, and stood,
livid and trembling, before us. His
dark eyes, glaring out of the white
mask of his face, were full of horror
and astonishment as he gazed from Sir
Henry to me,
"What are you doing here, Barrymore?"
"Nothing, sir." His agitation was so
great that ho could hardly speak, and
the shadows sprang up and down from
the shaking of his candle. "It was the
window, sir. I go round at night to see
that they are fastened."
"On   the  geqond,   floor1?"
"Yrs,  sir,  ail   the windows.'
"Look  neve,  Barrymore,"  said    Sir
Henry,   sternly;   "we   have   made   up
our minds to have \ho truth out    of
you, so It will save you trouble to tell
It sooner rather than later. Conin, now'
No lies! What were you doing at thai
wlmjow?"
The fellow looked at us In n holple"'
way. And he wring his hand i to^el' ���
like one who is In the last extremity
of doubt and misery,
f,i was doing no harm, sir. I was holding a candle to the window."
"And why were you holding a candlp
to the window?"
"Don't ask me, Sir Henry���don't ask
me! I give you my word, sir, that it is
not my secret, and that 1 cannot tell it.
If it concerned no one but n.!ysplf \
���fyoilhl not try to keep it from you."
A sudden Idea occurred to me, and I
took the candle from the trembling
hand pf the butler,
t'Hp must have baan holding it as
a signal,'1 said I. "Let u.s see if there is,
any answer." I held it ns he hgd, done,
and litnred. put into the darkness of the
night. Vaguely I could discern thq
black bank of the trees and the light-,
er expanse of the moor, lor the moon
Wits behind the clouds. And then I
gave a cry of exultation, for a tiny pinpoint of yellow light had suddenly
jituisflxetf {he dark yell, and glowed
steadily in the centre of tho black
square framed by the window.
"There |t III'1 I cried.
"No, no, sir, it is nothing���nothing at,
all!" the butler broke In; "1 aswuie
you, sir���-""
"Alove your light acrrss the window,
Watson!" cried the baronet. "See, the
other moves also! New, you rascal, do
you deny that it is a signal? Come,
speak up! Who is your confederate
out yonder, and what is this conspiracy that is going on?"
The man's face became openly defiant.
"It Is my business, and not yours. I
will not toll."
"Then you leave my employment
tight away."
"Very good, sir. If I must I must."
"And you go in disgrace. By thunder, you may well he ashamed of yourself. Your family has lived with mine
for over a hundred years under this
roof, and here I lind you deep In some
dark nlnf ajtntnsl  nie "
iSO, no, sir; no, not against yoill"
It w.'s a woman's voice, and Airs. Barrymore, paler and more horrorslniok
ihnn hei husband, was standing at the
door. Her bulky figure In a shawl and
aklrl might have been comic were it.
not, for the Intensity of feeling upon
her face.
"We have to go, Rll/.a. This Is the
end of It. Yon can pack our things,"
said the butler.
"Oh, John, John, have I brought you
to this? It is my doing, Sir Henry���all
mine. He has done nothing except for
my sake, and because I asked him."
"Speak out, then! What does it
mean?"
"My unhappy brother is starving on
the moor. We cannot let him perish
at our very gates. The light Is a signal to him that food is ready for him,
and his light out yonder Is to show
the spot to which to bring It."
"Then your brother is "
"The escaped convict, sir- -Selden,
the criminal."
"That's the truth, sir," said Barrymore. "I said that it was not my secret and that I could net tell It to you.
But now you have heard It, and you
will see that if there was a plot It was
not against you."
This, then, was the explanation of
the stealthy expeditions at night and
the light at the window. Sir Henry and
I both stared at the woman In amazement. Was tt possible that this stolidly
respectable  person  was of the same
and gave him his own way in everything until he came to think that the
world was made for his pleasure, and
that he could do what he liked In it.
Then, as he grow older, he met wicked companions, and the devil entered
into him until he broke my mother's
heart and dragged our name In the
dirt. From crime to crime ho sank
lower and lower until it is only Hip
mercy of Clod which has snatched him
"Mt Cut, what's tint  Watson ?"
from the scaffold; but to me, sir, he
was always the. little curly-headed boy
that I had nursed and played with, as
an elder sister would. That was why
he broke prison, sir. He KflQW that 1
was here and, that we "could not re-
fusB to help him. When he dragged
himself here one night, weary an<}
starving, with the warders hard at his
heels, what could We tiot We took him
|it and fed" film and cared for him.
Then you returned, sir, and my brother thought he would be safer pit the
moor than anywhere, uls�� until the hue
Eintl f.l'J- was over, so he lay in hiding
there. But every second night we made
sure if he was still there by putting a
light in the window, a,nd if there was
an angWttl'' wy husband took out some
bread and meat to him. Every day we
hoped that he was gone, but as lon,^
as he was there we could n,ot desert
him. That [fj tl1 q wlitfle truth, us J am
an honest christian woni"'\ and you
will see that if there is blame In the
matter It docs not He With my hua-
band but With !"��, for whose sake he
has done ail that he has,"
The woman's words came with an
Intense en>'!".cstnPc*s which carried con-
I'll flop with them.
Ts this true, Barrymore?"
"Yes, Sir Henry. Every word of It."
"Well, I cannot blame you for standing by your own wife. Forget what I
have said. Go to your room, you two,
and we shall talk further about thl3
matter in the morning."
When they were gone we looked out
of the window again. Sir Henry hfid
flung it open, and the cold night wind
beat In upon our faces. Far away in
the blaok distance there still glowed
that one tiny point of yellow light.
"I wonder he dares," said Sir Henry.
"It may be so placed as to be only
visible from here."
"Very likely. How far do you think
It is?"
"Out by the Cleft Tor, I think."
"Not more than a mile or two off."
"Hardly that."
"Well, It cannot be far If Barrymore
had to carry out the food to it. And
he is waiting, this villain, beside that
candle. By thunder, Watson, I am going out to take that man!"
The same thought had crossed my
own mind. It was not as If the Barry-
mores had taken us into their confidence. Their secret had been forced
from them. The man was a danger to
tho community, an unmitigated scoundrel for whom there was neither pltV
nor excuse. We were only doing our
duly in taking this chance of put.tl ig
him back where he could do no harm.
With his brutal and violent nature,
ethers would have to pay tho price If
we held our hands, Any night, for example, our neighbors the Stapletons
might bn attacked by him, and It may
have been the thought of this which
made Sir Henry so keen upon the adventure.
"I will come," said I.
"Then get your revolver and put on
your boots. The sooner we start the
better, as the fellow may put out his
light and be off."
In five minutes we were outside the
door, starting upon our expedition. We
hurried through the dark shrubbery,
amid the dull moaning of the autumn
wind and the rustle of the falling
leaves. The night air was heavy with
tho smell of rVmp and decay No'v
and again the moon peeped out for an
instant, but clouds were driving over
the face of the sky, and just as we
came out on the moor a thin rain began to fall. The light still burned
steadily In front.
"Are you armed?" I asked.
"I have a hunting-crop."
"We must close In on him rapidly,
for he is said to be a desperate, fellow.
'e shall take him by surprise and
"ave him at our mercy before he can
-s'st "
"I say, Watson," said the baronet,
"what would Kol"ies say to this? How
great (lumpen Mire. It came with the
wind through the silence of the night,
a long, deep mutter, then a rising howl,
and then Ihe sad moan in which it
died away. Again and again it sounded, the whole air throbbing with it, strident, wild, and menacing. The baronet
caught niy sleeve and his face glimmered white through din darkness.
"My God, what's that, Watson?"
"I don't know. It's a sound they
have on the moor. 1 heard it once before."
It died away, and an absolute silence closed In Upon US. We Mood
straining our ears,  bul nothing cam?
"Watson," said the baronet, "it v.-;rj
the cry of a hound "
My blood ran cold in my veins, for
there was a break in his voire which
told of the sudden horror which had
seized him.
"What do they call this sound?" he
asked.
"Who-.'"
"The folk on the country siilp?"
"Oh, they are ignorant people. Why
should you mind what they call it?"
"Tell me, Watson. What do they say
of It?"
I hesitated, but could not escape the
question.
"They say it is the cry of Ihe Hound
of the Baskervilles,"
He groaned, and was silent for a
few moments,
"A hound it was," he said, at last,
"but It seemed to come from miles
away, over yonder, I think."
"It was hard to sav whence it came"

HISTORICAL CORNER.
A Frenchman's account of the
Battle of Hastings, October
16th.,    1066.
"In the morning the Bishop of
Bayeux, Duke William's half-
brother, armed with a hauberk
under his surplice, celebrated
mass and blessed the Norman
troops, then mounted a white
steed, took a field-marshall's baton in his hand and drew up the
cavalry. The army was divided
into three columns, in the first of
which were the men - at - arms
drawn from the counties of Boulogne and Ponthieu with the
greater part of the adventurers
who had been enlisted as mercenaries; in the second were the
auxiliaries from Brittany, Maine
and Poitou; whilst William himself commanded the third division composed of the Norman
chivalry. At the head and on
the flanks of each detachment
marched several rows of lightly-
armed foot-soldiers wearing padded great coats and armed with
long wooden bows or steel crossbows. The Duke rode a Spanish horse that a rich Norman
had brought him from a pilgrimage to Saint James in Galieia.
Around his neck wen; bung the
moat sacred of the relics on
which Harold had sworn the year
before; and the standard, blessed
by the Pope, was carried by his
side by a young man named Tous-
tain the Fair. Just as the troops
were about to start the Duke addressed them in these words:
'My true and loyal friends, you
have crossed the sea and entered
un a perilous adventure out of
regard for myself, for which I
feel greatly obliged to you. Now
rest assured that we are going
to fight in a good cause, and that
it is not merely to conquer this
kingdom that I have come from
across the Channel. The people
of this country, as you are aware,
are false and two-fased perjurers
and traitors. On the night of
Saint Brice they causelessly
slaughtered the Danish men, women and children; they destroyed
the companions of Alfred, the
brother of Edward, my relative;
and him they blinded, then put
to death. Other acts of cruelty
and treachery have they committed against the Normans
which, if it please God, you will
to-day avenge. Put up a valiant
fight and be sure to give no quarter but put all to death, for if we
can conquer them we shall all be
rich. What I gain you will also
gain; if I am victorious you also
will conquer; if I take the land
you shall have it. Then think,
too, of the great honor which
will accrue to us to-day if the victory is ours, and bear in mind
that if you are vanquished you
will meet with certain death, foi
no way of retreat is left open to
us. Before you is a land unknown
to you, and between you and
Normandy are a raging sea and
armed men.    He who runs awaj

will lose his life whilst he win
lights valiantly will save it. In
the name of Cod let each one
faithfully do Ilia duly and the
day will he ours.'
"The Normans sunn came in
sight of the Saxon army lying to
the north-west of Hastings. Tin
priests and monks who accompanied it separated themselves
from it and scaled a neighboring
height to pray and watch the
fight. A Norman, called Taille
fer, urged forward his horse in
front of the Norman lines, and
as he did so struck up a song,
famous all over France, of Charlemagne and Roland. As he
sang he kept on pitching his
sword into the air and caught it
in his right hand as it fell. The
Normans repeated his refrain,
crying out at times, 'God help
us.'
"When within reach of the enemy, the long-bowmen and the
cross-bowmen began to shoot
their arrows; but the greater
part of their shafts were rendered abortive by the high parapet of the Saxon redoubts.   The
bot-sokliers armed with lances
and the cavalry advanced to the
galeij of the entrenchments and
tried tii force them. The Saxons,
standing around their standard
fixed on a pole in the ground,
and forming a compact and solid
mass behind their palisades, received the assailants with blows
from their battle-axes, breaking
the Norman lances and coats of
mail. As the Normans could
neither get within the redoubts
nor pull up the stakes they fell
back, wearied with this futile
attack, towards the division commanded by William.
"The Duke then again gave
orders for all the archers to advance t )gether instructing them
not to shoot straight before them
but to shoot upwards so that
their arrows might fall over the
hostile ramparts. In this way
many- Saxons were wounded,
mostly in the face, and Harold
himself had an eye burst by an
arrow, but he still kept on giving
orders and fighting. Again the
foot and horse soldiers charged,
this time close in, shouting as
they did so, 'God help us.' But
the Normans were again repulsed
at one of the gates of the camp
and were driven back as far as a
ravine covered with brush and
grass, amongst which their horses became entangled and stumbled and large numbers of them
were slain. There was a momentary terror in the French
camp. At this crisis the report
was current that the Duke had
been killed; and at this news
his troops began to flee. William threw himself in front of
the fugitives and barred their
way, threatening and striking at
them with his lance; then uncovering his faco lie shouted, 'Here
I am, look al mo; you see 1 am
still alive, and by God's help I
mean to conquer.'
"Tho cavalry again returned
to the Saxon redoubts but they
could neither force the gates nor
make a breech In the stockades.
Then the Duke thought of a ruse
to induce the Saxons to leave
their positi m and their ranks; he
ordeio 1 a thousand horsemen to
advance and then to retreat. The
sight of this feigned repulse
made the Saxons lose their cool
composure, for they all started
in pursuit with their hatchets
suspended from their necks.
Some distance away the fugitives
suddenlv wheeled round and were
joined by a large body of troops
expressly hidden on each side of
them. The Saxons, embarrassed
by their heavy battle-axes, were
unable to cope with the long lances of the cavalry. When the
Saxon lines had thus been broken, the fences of the redoubts
were forced and foot and horse
soldiers rushed inside; and then
began a lively hand-to-hand combat. William had his horse killed
under him; king Harold and his
two brothers fell dead fighting
bravely around their flag which
was then torn down and replaced
by the banner sent from Rome.
The remnants of the Saxon army,
without a leader or a standard,
prolonged the struggle till far
into the night, so that in the end
the combatants were only distinguishable by their language, ���
