The cemetery question has at
last been settled. The council

We were this week shown a
branch from an apricot tree
grown in John Mahoney's orchard. It was studded with
blossoms, and although the tree,
as stated by Mr. Mahoney, has
been in blossom since a week before Easter, there is no sign of
frost having done any injury.
If a fire should break out during the prevailing windy weather, it might do a tremendous a-
mount of damage. We do not
wish to unneccessarily hurry the
council, which, undoubtedly, has
its hands full, but we believe the
safty of the place demands that
it at once take charge of the fire
department.
W. F. H. Swinton and family
left for Yorkton Sas., on Tuesday after a residence in Penticton
for about four years. Mr. Swinton was one of Penticton's most
useful and energetic citizens,
and the place he has occupied in
the community will be hard to
fill. Mrs. Swinton has also proved a very enthusiastic church
worker. The Press joins withi
their numerous friends in Penticton in wishing Mr. and Mrs.
Swinton the greatest prosperity
in their new home.
The Girls' Guild of  St.   Saviour's church held a sale of work
and   homemade   candy   at  the
home of Mrs.  B.  T. Gahan on
Wednesday afternoon.  The room
was nicely decorated with wild I
flowers;  and the ladies spent a'
very pleasent afternoon.   A pro- j
gramme was given in which Mrs. j
Mitchell.     Mrs.     Were,     Mrs.
Stevens,  Miss Mutch and Miss
Size sang solos, Mrs. Were and
Miss Jackson  gave  instrumental, and Mrs. Stevens and Rev.
J. A. Cleland recited.   The proceeds amounted to $18.75.
Smith Curtis leaves on Thursday morning for Short creek, on
the west side of Okanagan lake,
where he goes to start development work on a coal property he
holds there. On this coal property a vein of coal having good
eight feet in width, outcrops at
various points. The coal is
bituminous, very similar to that
of the Nicola valley and probably  belongs to the  same forma
tion. If the coal underdevelopment continues to show up {s
satisfactorily as on the surface, it
is probable that a coal company
will be formed to take hold of
the property. Mr, Curtis expects to return on May 1st ���
Rossland Miner.
A Penticton audience once
more had the pleasure of listening to the Williams' Jubilee
Singers on Monday evening.
There was a very good attendance, but probably not so large
as there would have been but
for the fact that two entertainments were billed for the week.
Owing to the late arrival of the
Str. Okanagan, on which the
company were passengers, the
entertainment did not begin until after nine o, clock. The programme, with the exception of
one or two selections, was entirely different to the one given
here a year ago, and was heartily enjoyed by every person
present. The company is particularly strong in quartette and
chorus work.
i ization.
Mr. J. Power was appointed
j secretary-treasurer pro tern, and
! a list being opened, those present
signed their names as members.
This list will be further circu-
: lated in order to secure forty or
! fifty members at least. The De-
j partment will then grant author-
i ity to organize,  and a meeting
of the members will be called, at
which the officers for the ensuing
! year will be elected.
B. O. H. and P. B. C.
Football, Penticton vs. Kelowna.
The Kelowna junior and senior
football teams played the local
teams on the Penticton grounds
Thursday afternoon.
The junior match came off
first, the game beginning at 4:40
and the first goal being scored
for Penticton fifteen minutes
later by V. DeBeck. No further
goals were scored during the first
half, but the ball was kept almost constantly around the Kelowna goal. During the second
half E. Adamson scored one
and C. Lancaster two goals, making four for the home team, the
last being from a penalty kick.
The senior match began at
5:45, and in less then five minutes Kelowna had scored, and it
looked as though it would be a
walkover for the visitors as the
visitors as the ball was kept
dangerously near the Penticton
end continuously. Later, however, the home team woke up
and put up such a vigorous fight
that, although no scores were
made by Penticton, Kelowna did
not make another goal during
the game.
This will be the last game
played by the Penticton senior
team this season, players being
so scarce that on this occasion it
was found necessary to play two
men from Peachland, one from
Fairview and one from Kelowna
on the home team.
The concert given on the evening of Friday, 16th inst. by the
Band of Hope and Penticton
Boys' Club reflects great credit
upon the youth of the community as well as upon Mrs.
Thompson, Mrs. McNeil and
others who had their training in hand. The programme
was a long one, and every item
was enjoyed by the full house
that assembled to hear it. Roy
Rogers made a very efficient
chairman; and the first part of
the programme comprised
speeches, vocal and instrumental
music recitations and drills; while
the latter part consisted of an
amusing minstrel show. The
programme was as follows:

Farmers' Institute.
A meeting was held in the S.
O. Land Co. building on Wednesday evening at which the first
steps were taken towards the
organization of a Penticton
Farmers' Institute.
In the past the Osoyoos Farmers' Institute has embraced all
the Okanagan from north of
Kelowna to the Boundary. This
has been found very unsatisfactory, and it was with the idea
that a local organization with its
officers resident at this point
could do more effective work and
prove of actual service to the
fruit growers, that the movement was set on foot to organize at Penticton.
On the meeting being opened,
W. J. Clement, who was appointed chairman, briefly outlined the
purpose for which the meeting
was called and the objects of a
Farmers' Institute. Mr. J, Power, who has taken an active interest in local organization, also
gave a number of suggestions.
Fortunately, Mr. R. M. Wins-
low, assistant provincial fruit
inspector, was present, and, being called upon, gave a short address containing a number of
valuable hints'to the new organ-
Municipal Council.
Meeting held Thursday April

Councillors Murk, Power Barnes

Forward Penticton.
Penticton has one of the best
sites for a city in British Columbia. It takes people, however,
to make a city, aud if Penticton
is to become one, it must secure
a great number of settlers.
How can people be induced to
settle here? Penticton has a
fine climate, beautiful scenery,
two magnificent lakes and many
more attractions, and yet people
are not falling over one another
to see who can get here first.
If we were asked what would
be the greatest drawing card to
this favored-by-nature section,
we would say, "a domestic supply of water, and electric light."
Up-to-date poople are wanted
here, and up-to-date people always want up-to-date conveniences, and will go only
where they can get them. Furnish the conveniences and the
right people will come.

Property would double in value,
besides each man, woman

worth at least one thousand dol-

rate one hundred new setters
would-justify the expenditure;
As a result, the Alliance has
been able to settle 95 per cent,
of the cases of attempted violations of the Act without an appeal to the courts.
When the Act came into force

"But, look bere." demanded Dextry
sharply. "Hie money In that safe belongs to us. That's money we brought
in from the States. The court ain't

"Oh. as tn law. they don't pay any

we're up against a stiff game. Tlie

If you don't know what that means ask some Scotchman,
but it amounts to this : If a man has not planned his summer
clothing to include a "Sovereign Brand" suit and a pair of "K" boots
he is going to be disappointed.
SOVEREIGN BRAND CLOTHING
as we have already told you, and we wish to emphasize the fact,
Is up=to=date in every particular.
The styles are correct, the materials are the
finest, and the workmanship the best.
There are other brands of clothing, good brands too, but ours is the
"Sovereign" of them all.
It Pays to Advertise
"K" Boots
have been so thoroughly tested as to come fully up to all that the
makers claim for them, that they
Are the strongest and best Boot made.
Their first cost is a little more thnn the average but they more than
repay their cost from the wear ar id satisfaction given.

Nurserymen,   -   of Ontario
Are extensive growers of all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs, Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
the members of the firm are all practical nurserymen of 25 years experience, and have built up
the most successful und 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 linn, 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 Rive 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 ('oast stock, being more hardy In the wood, with a more abundant
suuplv 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 t-�� represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, and will make liberal terms to the right party, for all. or a part of his time.
