To Link Boundary and the Okanagan.
(From the Vancouver Province.)
It is understood that English
capital is to be provided for the
building of the Midway & Vernon railway, a proposed air line
of 80 miles to connect the Boundary and Okanagan districts.
The charter is owned by Greenwood parties, including Mr. Robert Wood, a well known business
man. Construction work was
started three years ago and in all
twenty miles of grading west
from Midway where the C. P. R.
and Great Northern form an important railway centre have been
completed. Work was suspended
owing to a disagreement with a
New York syndicate which had
arranged to finance the proposition.
Mr. Ralph Smailes, who is interested in the charter, made arrangements in New York a few
weeks ago for all the capital
needed to link Vernon with Midway. During his stay there he
closed a deal with the representatives of an English syndicate.
It is not unlikely that construction work may be undertaken
shortly. The proposed railway
will ascend the valley of the
west fork of Kettle river and
crossing a low divide at its headwaters make the descent to Vernon by an easy grade. It will
open up an important mining and
agricultural district. Several
high grade mines along the route
now transport their ores forty
miles in sleighs in winter time
and derive a profit, the values
per ton often exceeding $150 in
gold and silver. The Sally mine
is one of the best mines up the
west fork.
Mr. Smailes reached here yesterday from New York and felt
elated over his success in promoting the enterprise after its
vicissitudes. A few years ago
the provincial government held
that a cash subsidy granted the
reilway had lapsed owing to the
failure of the promoters to carry
out the terms as regards construction. Subsequently a stated
case was submitted to Chief .Justice Hunter, who decided that
the subsidy had not lapsed.
If the line is built it will be a
competitor of the proposed extension of the Nicola valley
branch of the C. P. R. from
Nicola to Midway. The C. P. R.
has survey parties in the field
this season locating a route which
does not go near Vernon. The
route is direct to the west shore
of Okanagan lake and thence via
Penticton due east to the Columbia & Western branch of the C.
P. R. at Midway.
Looking Ahead.
The public press has large work
cut out for it just now. Fall
fairs, Dominion elections, business conditions and prospects,
are present topics. Matters of
far greater import loom larger
as time goes on. Of these, development of latent wealth,
transportation, forest culture,
are in the forefront.
The permanent sources of
wealth are chiefly in the soil.
Mining, fishery and timber industries have been well exploited
already and are in their nature
t ansient as compared with tie
p 'oducts of the soil. The form-
I er MAY be made permanently
p:oductive ; the latter MUST always furnish sustenance, comfort, wealth, to the mass of man-
l kind.
Suppose we indulge in aspecu-
,lative flight as to what the future
promises to the Okanagan country, only the presage of a coming
time.    In B, C. the  products of
j the soil were long regarded as of
j lesser importance than any other
'of the larger sources of wealth.
^ow, however, the limitless possibilities of our fruit  production
lighten up the whole horizon.
Assume that there are  half  a
million acres of fruit land within
t ie sphere of irrigation. Suppose
: t lis area cleared of trees,   scrub
stones, etc.,  and plowed ready
I for planting at a cost per acre of
$75.     Add   $25   for  trees  and
: planting, making $100 per acre,
or   $50,000,000.     Suppose   this
! amount borrowed at 6 per cent,
interest, the province guaranteeing   the   bonds,   the   increased
burden would be $3,000,000 annually.
But tracts of land thus reclaimed would thereby be enhanced in annual and taxable
J value by many times the proportionate amount of this annual
charge and would thereafter afford profitable employment to
twenty men for each one hundred acres of land thus improved.
One half the number should be
resident owners of moderate allotments of land, Big outlay
this and heavy indebtedness to
be borne by some body corporate
or politic. Suppose the latter ;
we should have large revenue
from the immense increase in the
taxable value of the land thus
mude productive as also from the
duty on larger imports for home
consumption. Consider the volume of traffic inward as well as
outward. The Coldstream Estate
Co. reported ten tons of apples
to the acre. With a few million
tons of freight in prospect, how
long would the railway magnates
leave any part of the orchard
areas lacking ample transportation fafilities ? Would they not
"fall over each other" to tap
these streams oi* traffic ?
Ample returns these for large
investments under prudent and
efficient management. But where
can such be found ?   In govern-
J ment ownership ?   Never.    Gov-
! ernment control of  water,  gov-
i eminent construction and control
I of irrigation systems,   provided
j everything relating  thereto   be
separated once and forever from
party   patronage,   should   work
well; but government ownership
of land, no, no.    Woe betide the
country,   half of   whose people
1 "put in time" on a  government
job!  What then?   Bonus private
or associated  industries?   Indirectly, perhaps by a  tariff such
I as that devised to foster eastern
I industries.    But individual or associated enterprise must do the
work if enduring prosperity is to
follow.    Governments should not
usurp the lights or the functions
of individual or associations, but
rather clear  obstructions   from
the path of progress.
A department of hydrography
and forestry   might   be   put   in
charge and control of a water
system throughout the fruit producing portion of the "dry belt,"
j with power to construct, or control the  construction   by  stock
companies,   of    ample    storage
reservoirs, flumes  and pipes to
retain and regulate the flow of
the abundant water supply  now
worse    than   wasted,    present
water rights being adjusted on
! the lines laid down by Mr.   Dennis   at  the  recent   convention.
The assurance thus given of a
1 full and regular supply of water
to all fruit growers proportionate
to their actual requirements, not
to their whims nor yet to indulge
ignorance, laziness or greed.
This would apply the needed
spur, imparting an impulse, and
quickening energies now flagging
under the strain of monetary

Municipal Irrigation.
Under the title, "Looking A-
head" we publish in this issue a
contributed article signed, "Norland" which is worthy a careful
perusal. The marvelous possibilities of our soil, and the enormous wealth that would accrue
to the province under a wise and
systematic administration of the
available water supply make any
suggestions along this line specially interesting.
The writer struck the keynote
of constitutional liberty in the
sentence, "Governments should
not usurp the rights or functions
of individuals, or associations,
but rather clear obstructions
from the path of progress." Of
course opinions of the functions
of government have much altered during recent years, and
many things once thought beyond the right of governments to
deal with, are now believed to be
quite within that right.
The operation of such works
as those of irrigation by governments under the present party,
��� or rather, factional system, could
never prove satisfactory unless
placed under independent com-,
missions, or some similar arrangement. The day may arrive
when we will elect men to parliament upon their merits, when
there will be no such thing as
party, but the members of parliament will gather to discuss
questions, also upon their merits,
and enact laws, accordingly, after the same manner as do the
aldermen in a city council. When
that time comes, 'most great institutions may safely be owned
and operated by some section of
the government. Railway systems
could, probably, be operated best
under the supervision of the
Dominion Government, mines
x forests and fisheries by the provincial governments, while such
institutions as irrigation systems
would naturally fall to the allotment of the municipalities.
The management of irrigation
systems by stock companies, we
believe, could never be permanently satisfactory. The interests
of the two elements concerned
are diametrically opposite, that
of the company to declare dividends and that of the user of
water to get his supply for as
small a sum as possible. Two
parties whose interests are economically opposite cannot be expected to work long in harmony.
We, therefore, look for municipal
ownership and operation of irrigation systems upon the same
principal as many of the cities at
present own and operate their
own water systems. Municipalities being free from the trammels of party politics, the opportunities for graft are reduced to
a minimum, and the utilities under their control are operated
for the benefit of the entire community without the idea of profit.
elusion that incorporation was not
very seriously desired. However, now that the ice has been
broken, others may fall in and
create splashing enough to attract the attention of the general
public. Of this we are satisfied,
there will be no further opposition to the proposition. Consequently we deem it unnecessary
to give further arguments in
favor of the contemplated step.
Everybody is merely waiting for
someone else to move. However
if the matter is put off much
longer, it will be impossible to
complete organization by the
first of the new year. It will be
necessary to call a public meet-
1 ing so that all may have the opportunity of discussing the question, and that a committee may
j be appointed to have charge of
the preliminary work. The next
question is, when a meeting is
called, will people attend in representative numbers? Every
property owner within a radius
of six miles should be present.
Newly   Received

There has been a little rumbling among the elements during
the past week relative to the location of a cemetery site. We
promise a thunder storm, a cyclone or an earthquake before
bng if something is not done.
Come, get a move on! Penticton
psople usually have to be made
mad before they can be got

that was long ago appointed to
secure a cemetery site? They
should get together without delay and decide on something, or
hand in their resignations.

We arc glad to note that a correspondent has taken up the
question of incorporation through
the columns of the Press. We
had said so much upon the subject without a response of this
kind that we had come to the con-
Protect Existing Forests or Plant
New Ones ?
If you draw the attention of
the man in the street to our rapidly diminishing supplies of timber he will say, "Yes, that's so.
Why, the Government ought to
go to work and plant up the open
spots." Let us examine the
practicability of such a scheme.
With a large and well equipped
nursery for the growing of forest tree seedlings, and with labor
at $2.00 per day it is possible to
reduce the cost of planting, five
feet apart each way, to between
$7.00 and $8.00 per acre. For
sake of argument, let us assume
that it can be done for $5.00 per
acre, or $3,200 per square mile.
At this rate the planting of a
township only six miles square
would require the enormous expenditure of $115,203. The man
in the street will do some pretty
hard thinking before he will consent to pay his share of the cost
of such an undertaking, yet he
will read in his morning paper
that thirty townships, or more
than a thousand square miles of
: woodlands in Northern Alberta,
Saskatchewan or Manitoba have
i been destroyed by fire, and
scarcely give the matter a passing thought.
Would  it not  be very much
more to the purpose to take time
by the forelock and use the money required to plant up a single
township for the maintenance of
an efficient fire  ranging system,
similar to that already established in Ontario?   To my mind the
problem  pressing hardest upon
; the Dominion Forestry Service
i for solution is the protection of
the western woodlands from fire.
The new   railway   being built
! through them and the settlement
j that will  follow will  be a con-
jstant sourca of danger,   but if
��� fire rangers who feel the responsibility of their   positions,  and
possess the  necessary diligence,
firmness and tact to  faithfully
perform their duties and secure
the co-operation of the settlers
and railway companies,  can be
found and retained  in service, a
great deal may be done to save
invaluable   forest    areas    from
ruthless destruction.   A.  H. D.

Since his eariy boyhood the section
boss had not known snow. Before the
previous day Dallas and Marylyu had
never seen it It was with exclamations of delight, therefore, that, crowding together iu the doorway, the three
first caught sight of the glistening
"Pa, It's like a Christmas card!"
cried the younger girl. and. bareheaded, she ran out to frolic before the
To Dallas the scene had a deeper
meaning. Here was what would discourage and block any one who had
nut off necessary' improvements! And
(this would last long after the expiration of that six months! "I guess
there'll be no building or plowing
now." she said to ner father happily,
i He. fully as relieved, returned a confident assent.
, A little later old Michael, the ferry-
inan. drove by, breaking a track along
the blotted road. His ancient crdu-
roys. known to every river man from
liismarck to Baton Rouge, were hidden
lenenth layers of overcoats. Through
the wool cap. pulled down to his collar, two wide holes gave hbn outlook; a
third and smaller aperture was filled
by the stem of a corncob pipe. He
was headed for the cattle camp, the
lines over a four-ln-hand hitched to
lliree empty wagons, a third team tied
lo the tailboard of the hindmost box.
1 On the arrival of the saloon gang
Ihe pilot had left bis steamboat In the
Lands of his two helpers and made bia
way to Shanty Town. There In a
Bhingle hut, perched atop a whisky
cask and kicking its rotund belly complacently with his heels, he had wet
a throat, long dry, from the amber
depths beneath linn.
With each succeeding glass his obligations had grown apace. Nevertheless, for a lifetime of rough service
had brought about an immunity that
belied bis Celtic blood, his brain remained clear, his step steady and his
eye unbleared. Thus it happened that
when, cut off from grazing, it was necessary for tbe Shanty Town teams to
be returned at once to Clark's old
Michael was on baud aud in condition
to take them and by so doing wipe
out his drinking account
As he came opposite the shack Marylyn was still running nbout in the
snow, while Dallas was sweeping out
some long, narrow drifts that had
elfted in through window and door
cracks. Squinting across at them, he
recalled all at once a heated conversation that had takeu place at Shanty
Town the afternoon of the southward
departure of a Dodge City courier.
And he shook his head sorrowfully.
"Ye'll have yer nan's fule before
long." he advised aloud, "or it's me
that's not good at guessin'." And, lifting the front of his cap. he sympathetically blew the purple bump that
served him for a nose till it rang
through the crisp air like a throaty
Farther on as he sat pondering deeply and letting the leaders choose their
course a horseman came cantering toward him and drew rein beside his
wheel. It was Lounsbury, burled to
the ears In a buffalo coat
"Sure, it's somethiu' important, John,
that's a-brlngin' ye out t'day," cried
old Michael roguishly, his brogue disclosing his Identity. "It's ayther tille-
grams or l-a-a-ydles."
The storekeeper colored under his
visor. "It's nayther," he mocked
"None o" yer shillyshallln'," warned
the ferryman, giving the other a playful whack with his gad. "01 kin rade
ye lolke a buke."
"You can't read a book." declared
Lounsbury. "Itut I'll tell you. I'm
going to the I.ancasters'."
Old Michael nodded, with a Rly wink
through the portholes of his mask.
"Oi knowed It!" he said. Then, after
fishing out a tobacco bag from under
his many coats ami lighting the control) In the protecting bowl of his
palms. "In that case, man, 01 got
Boinethln' f sny t' ye."
He leaned over the wheel confidentially, and Lounsbury bent toward
him, so that the smoke of the pipe
fed the storekeeper's nostrils. They
talked for a half hour, theone relating his story, the other putting In
quick questions. At the end of their
conversation Lounsbury held out bis
"if their letter brings him, Mike," he
snld, "don't you fail to let me know."
"Aye, aye," promised the- pilot earnestly.
They parted. Old Michael continued
his way with an easy mind, but Lounsbury was troubled. Instead of carrying, as on his former visit, good news
to the little family on the bend he
must now be the hearer of evil.
And when, having stalled his horse
with Ben and Betty, lie entered the
Cottonwood shack his heart smote him
still more, for secretly he had hoped
that he was to tell them what they already knew, but It seemed precisely
the reverse. There was nothing In the
appearance and actions of the Lancaster that suggested anxiety. Tlie section boss, though his manner was not
without a certain reserve (as if he half
believed something was about to be
wormed out of him), greeted Lounsbury good naturedly enough.   Marylvn
hurried up iu a timid flutter to take bis
cap and coat while facing him from
the hearthside. her hair coiled upon
her head like a crown, her gray eyes
bright, her cheeks glowing, was a new

Lounsbury. accepting a bench.
"Oh, spright 'nough," answered the
section boss, "but it's cold; it's cold.
Keeps mc tremhlin' like a guilty nigger."
"You'll get over that." assured the
other, rubbing tbe blood into his hands.
"It's natural for you to be soft as chalk
rock the first winter. You've lieen living south."
"Ah reckon." agreed Lancaster. He
sat down beside the younger man.
eying him closely. "How d' y' come f
git away fr'm business?" he queried.
"Well, you see." Lounsbury answered. "I've got an Al man in my Bismarck store, and at Clark's there's
nothing to do weekdays hardly, so I
just took some tobacco to Skinney's.
where the boys could get at It. aud
loped down here." Then playfully.
/'But I don't see much happening In
these parts." He stretched toward a
window. "Tbe town of Lancaster
ain't growing very fast."
Dallas, seated on �� bench with Marylyn, looked across at him smilingly.
"I'm glad of it" she declared. "We
ain't used to towns."
"You folks 've never lived in one?"
"No. we never even been In one."
He puckered his forehead.   "Funny."
he said.    "Somehow,   1   always  think
of you two as town girls."
I   "Aw, shucks!" exclaimed  Lancaster,
But Dallas was leaning forward, in
terested. "That's ou account of out
teachers," she said. "There was a
schoolhouse up the track. In Texas,
land we weut to it on the hand car.
I Every year we had a different teacher,
'and all of 'em came from big eastern
I places like New Orleans or St. Louis
.So���so, you see. we kinda got towny
from our schoolma'ams."
I "One had a gold tooth." put in Mary
!lyn. Her eyes, wide with recollection,
'were fixed upon Lounsbury.
I "But you passed through cities com-
Imr north." amued the storekeeper.
"JO.n-no," said Dallas slowly. "Wfr
���we skirted 'em."
"What a pity!" he turned to the sec
tion boss.
"Pity!" echoed the latter. "Huh'
You save you' pity. My gals is better
off ef they don' meet no town hoodlums."
It had been "soldier trash" before,
now it was "town hoodlums." Lounsbury wondered why he had been allowed a second call. He glanced at
the girls. There was a sudden shadow
on each young face. He changed to
the fire and looked hard at it How
cut off they were! Where was their
happiness���except in their borne? And
could he tell them even that was
"Not by a long shot!" he vowed.
"I'll trust old Michael."
He set himself to be agreeable, and
especially toward the section boss. He
told of the Norwegian at Medicine
mountain and of the old man who lived with wife and children at the "little bend" up the river. He admired
the Navajo blankets and explained
their symbolic figures of men. animals
and suns. He leaned hack, clasping a
knee, and branched into comical sto
The little shack awoke to nnnccus
tomed merriment. Lancaster warmed
to the storekeeper's genial attentions
and burst Into frequent guffaws. Dal

word, breaking In from time to time
with little gleeful laughs.
But In the midst of It there came

frightened lowing and heavy thumps
against the shack.
The noise without produced a change

Ing up. screened Marylyn and waited,
as If In suspense.
Dark bulks now shot past, pursued
by mounted men. But very soon the
herd was gone, nnd all was again
quiet Then followed a moment that
was full of embarrassment Keenly.
Lounsbury looked from father to
daughter, the one striving to assume
nn easy air, the other incapable of hid
ing alarm. All at once he felt certain
they shared old Michael's Information. He determined to tell them that
he, too, knew what nnd whom they
��� feared.
"Expecting some one, Miss Dallas?"
he asked tentatively.
The section boss hastened to answer
"Expectin' tiothin'," he snapped. Then,
to cut short any further questioning.
"Dallas, y' clean forgot them mules
t'day. Lawd help us, y' goin' t' let
'em starve?"
Lounsbury sat quiet, realizing that
the team was but a pretext. The elder girl found her cloak, picked up a
bucket and left "the room. Marylyn
shrank into the dusk at the hearthside.
Lancaster was hobbling up and down,
his crutch ends digging at the packed
dirt of the floor.
The storekeeper, putting aside his
determination, went on as though he
had  not  noticed   (he  other's  attitude.
"Tbe storm was nard ou tne stock
last night. They must 'a' drifted thirty miles with It. Our loss is big. likely. The punchers Ml bunch everything
on four hoofs and drive 'em into the
coulee. Cows '11 be out of the wiud
there and live ou browse till the
ground clears."
But as he was talking the section boss
made himself ready for the cold. Before he had finished the elder man had
Lounsbury was thoroughly provoked
at the treatment shown hiin���he was
hurt at the plain lack of faith. Again
he considered what course to pursue.
Granted the family knew all he could
tell them, what could be gained by
forcing the fact of his knowledge upon them? Nothing ��� unless it were
more suspicion against himself. And
If they were in ignorance���well, it was
better than premature care. As before, he decided to remain silent and
depend upon the pilot.
He glanced at Marylyn. On her father's departure she bad moved out of
the shadow. Now she was sitting bolt
upright, with fingers touching the
bench nt cither side. Her lips were
half parted. She was watching Lounsbury wonderingly.
The moment their eyes met her owu
fell. She reached to the mantel for a
beaded belt and began work upon It
"What Is the prairie princess doing?"
he asked.
"Making something." She held the
belt by one hnnd to let It slip through
the other.
He reached for it. "My, it's pretty!
Wish you'd make me a watch fob like
She flushed and dimpled. "I'd like
to," she said.
"I'll wear it as an amulet." ne gave
her back the belt and their hands
She started nervously.
"Why, Miss Marylyn!" be said gen
tly.   "You afraid of me?"
"No." It was whispered.
"We'l, you mustn't be." His tone
was one that might hnve been used to
a child. "Since' I rode here a mouth
ago I've thought of you folks a lot
I'd like to do a real good turn for you
Perhaps it's because you girls seem
so lonely"���
"We're not lonely," she declared.
"The fort's near, and we can bear the
band. And pa says there'll be three
or four steamers go by next summer."
'ihe storekeeper mentally kicked
himself. "The idea of suggesting a
thing like that." he growled inwardly,
"when she hadn't even thought of it!
John Lounsbury. you've got about as
much sense as a fool mud hen."
"And."   went   on   Marylyn.   "there's
the ladies at  Port  Branuon     If pa"
She hesitated.
Lounsbury shook  his head, Rinllln
"Well. 1 wouldn't count on them if
were you" he advised, rememberinr;
certain experiences of Bismarck belles,
"Those women over there are as clannish as crows."
"Yes?" plaintively. She went at her
beads again.
"As I was saying." he began once
more. "I've thought of you folks a lot.
Seemed as if I just had to come down
today. And I brought you something.
See here!" He delved into the sido
pockets of his coat and pulled out two
"O-oh!" breathed Marylyn.  "Books!"
"All I had, but maybe you'll lik>��
'em.   They're love stories."
The shadow beyond the firelight
claimed her again.
From the lean-to came the sound of
Lancaster's voice. It was shrill with
anger. A great sadness came over
the storekeeper. "I wish I could como
down often and look after things," he
said.  "You need another man around."
There was a short silence. Then,
"Dallas likes the work outside," she
answered very low, "and driving Ben
and Betty up and down."
He nodded.    "But you?"
"1 like to stay In and sew."
" 'Stay   in   and   sew,'
he   mused.
"That  takes  me   back   to the  states.
"What is the pro trie princess doiny'/"
he asked.
My dear mother sits by the fire and
sews. Ah!"���with big brotherly tenderness���"I hope you'll never have to
do anything harder."
"Dallas won't let me work outside.
She says she's the man."
Dallas���the man! Somehow It stung
him. And then he heard the elder
Hirl pushing au armful of hay before
the eager noses of the mules. He got
up quickly. "She Is tending to those
beasts!" he exclaimed. "Why, if I'd
'a' thought"���
She rose also, a  wavering figure In
the bair lignt.
He picked up hat und coat, then
baited. If be offered his help in ihe
lean to what would be his reception?
He felt utterly hampered and began
twirling his thumbs like a bashful
cowboy. Moreover. Lancaster had
been gone a good while. Was his absence a hint for bis visitor to go?
The storekeeper went up to Mary
lyn. "Goodby," he said. "1 must be
hiking along."
She put a trembling hand in his.
The latch clicked behind them, aud
Ihe section boss entered. Again the
younger girl started, and consciously.
Lancaster banged the door and look.

meaningly. So���be had misled himself with the idea that Lounsbury had

the fact that he was still there. "Just

"S' long."
"Goodby, Miss Marylyn. Merry

gave ber a hearty smile.
"Goodby." She opened the door foi
John Lounsbury passed out. regret
ting that he bad been unwelcome; in
tlignant that the section boss had mis
judged his interest in the ownership
of the claim. But he would have lieen
astounded if he had known the real
nature of the false impression be wns

read the thoughts of the younger girl,
country reared, unused to tbe little
courtesies of speech and action. For
there were two who had misunderstood him that day.

"S 1QTJAW   CHARLEY   crouched

��g*nl were drawn tight over his
tattered waist Close around his feet,
which were shod in old and cracking

skirt An empty grain sack covered
his head and shielded bis face from

then filtered in through the chinks of
the stockade wall and swept him he
swayed gently back and forth, while
the tailless curs snuggling against
him whined in sympathy and fought
for a warmer place. For the kennel
roof of shingles, put up in one corner
of the inclosure as a protection for the
pack, bad served only during tlie week
that followed tbe storm to prevent the
pale beams of the winter sun from
reaching the pariah and his duiubconi-
Presently the flap of a nearby lodge
was flung aside. An Indian woman
inierged and threw a handful of bones
toward the shelter. At once Squaw
Charley awoke to action. Shedding
sack and blanket, he scrambled forward with the half starved, yelping
beasts to snatch his portion.
His bone picked clean of Its little,
the pariah resumed his crouching seat
once more, and tbe pack closed quietly
about him, licking his face und the
hands that had cuffed them as with
much turning aud shivering they settled down to sleep.
A warrior stalked proudly past, ignoring both his disgraced brother and
the sentries that paced the high board
walk at the wall's top. Two Indian
lads approached, chattering to each
other over the heart shaped horn tops
they were swinging on buckskin
strings and tarried a moment to scoff.
Squaw Charley paid no heed to either
brave or boys. His face was hidden,
his eyes shut. lie seemed, like the
dogs, to be sleeping.
Of a sudden there came a shrill summons from a distant wigwam, and tbe
pariah sprang up eagerly. Afraid-of-
a-Fawn stood in the tepee opening, her
evil face with its deep scar thrust forward to look about.
"Skunk!" she shrieked as he hurried
toward her, and her long black teeth
snapped together. "A fire!" Then she
spat to cleanse her mouth.
Squaw Charley hastened back to the
shingle roof for an armful of fuel.
Returning lie entered the wigwam and
knelt beneath . the smokehole. Anil
while he arranged the sticks carefully
upon a twist of grass the aged crone
hovered, hawklike, over him, ready
with fist or foot for any lack of basic
or failure with tlie lire. Not until
with flint nnd steel he lighted a strip
of spongy wood and thrust It under
Ihe dry hay nnd a flaine leaped up and
caught the soot on a hanging kettle
did she lenve him and go on a quest
for breakfast rations.
Tbe pariah hnd not dared lo lift his
eyes from his task while the hag was
watching. But now he stole a swift
glance toward the back of the lodge,
where the maid. Brown Mink, wns reclining, and his dull eyw, like the fuel
at his knees, leaped into sudden flame.
But, with the deftness of a woman, he
kept on putting bits of wood into the
mounting blaze.
Brown Mink did not look his way
She lay on a slanting frame of sap
lings held together by a network of
thongs. The gay blanket on which
she bad ridden during the march was
folded under her. A buffalo robe was
spread over her bead wrought leggings
nnd shoes, ils hairy side under, Its
tanned face, which was gaudily painted, uppermost. Festoonings of beads
fell from her neck to the top of her
richly embroidered skirt and heavy
eardrops of gilt pushed through the
purple black masses of ber hair.
Squaw Charley fed his sight gladly
with her loveliness, thankful that she.
who once had looked upon him kindly.

limbs nnd fast warming him; tbe brass
pot was singing merrily. He kept bis

Sir,-A great deal has been
said about incorporation but no
steps whatever have been taken
towards incorporating. This
matter, to my mind, is of very
great importance and every effort should be made to make this
community self-governing.
Under our present condition
how do we find Penticton? Are
the roads and sidewalks in good
condition, or do we notice any
new improvements along our
streets? "No," is the reply.
What, then, becomes of the
money we pay in taxes and licenses every year to the Government? It certainly is not spent
round Penticton, so we must conclude that other parts of our
province enjoy the benefits of it.
Are we to let the matter rest
like this or are we to incorporate,
and spend what money is realized
in taxes upon our own community? The next point is, if we incorporate should it be as a city
or municipality? Personally I am
in favor of a city, for I contend
that the people are at present
too scattered for a municipality
and that no real benefit would
result from incorporation, while
those in town, though paying by
far the most taxes would have
no more advantage than the few
families living at Dog Lake or
near Naramata. For instance,
if electric lights or water works
were installed those paying taxes
on the outside parts are just at
much entitled to the benefits as
those in town, and so one sees
how in case of a municipality the
place would be kept back for
years; whereas if we incorporated into a city we could easilj
have our electric lights and watei
works, with no raise in taxes,
for the revenue drawn from tht
lights and water works would
more than pay for themselves
and would not have the expense
of putting them in such a large
Regarding the increase of taxes
which incorporation would bring.
I have gone carefully over this
matter and find that the increase
would be very little, and the advantage we should enjoy by incorporation would more than repay us for the trivial extra.
In conclusion I wish to say that
I have not the slightest doubt
but that every person wants tc
see this community take its place
amongst the growing towns in
this province, and in order foi
us to do so it is necessary that
the place should be a self-governing one, either as a city or municipality. I hope soon to see
active steps taken toward incorporation. Ratepayer.

New Invention for Making Butter
from Whole Milk.
Mr. J. H. MacCullough, of the
Calgary Butter Separator Co.,
was in town on Saturday, the
12th inst, with his new buttei
maker. Mr. II. M. McNeill supplied three gallons of sweet milk
and this was put in the machine
and turned out one and one-half
pounds of extra fine quality of
butter in exactly twelve minutes.
Butter can be made in eight
minutes from sour milk and in
two minutes from sour cream.
The machine washes itself simply
by pouring in hot water and revolving the wheel a few times.
The demonstration was witnessed
by a number of Penticton people
who pronounced it a wonder.
Eight thousand of these butter
machines have been sold during
the past six months.
The Penticton Hardware Co.
have bought some of the different sizes and have the exclusive
sale of them in this district.
