Prof. VV. S. Thornber and M.  H.
Dobie deliver Most Instructive
Notwithstanding the fact that
the meeting of the Farmers' Institute had been announced in
two previous issues of the Press,
and that notices had for several
weeks been posted in prominent
places, the attendance at the
Farmers' Institute meeting on
Tuesday night was not nearly as
large as it should have been.
Fruit growers should avail themselves of every such opportunity
to gain information, as it is not
every day that people have the
privilege of listening to authorities on fruit culture such as Prof.
VV. S. Thornber, Horticulturist
of the Washington Agricultural
College at Pulman, or on fertilizers and soil conditions as M. H.
Dobie, of Victoria. One may
gain a great deal by reading, but
the amount of knowledge so ac
quired cannot be compared to
that gained from an oral demonstration by a man thoroughly
conversant with the subject under consideration. A very considerable amount of the benefit
to be derived is through questioning, for, by that means, individual difficulties may be cleared up.
This was clearly demonstrated
after the meeting by one grower
stating that he had learned more
than he had at all the other lectures he had ever attended.
However, the success of a meeting is not so much determined by
the numbers who attend as by
the live interest taken therein.
From this viewpoint the gathering on Tuesday evening was one
of the most successful of the
kind ever,held.in Penticton, and
the speakers of the evening expressed themselves as highly
pleased with results, as did all
who were fortunate enough to
hear their most instructive discourses.
The Institute was called to
order about 8:30, E. W. Mutch
being nominated to the chair.
Mr. Mutch, after a few introductory remarks, called on Mr.
Dobie to address the meeting.
Mr. Dobie spoke briefly of the
workings of the Farmers' Institute. The Osoyoos Farmers' Institute, the local branch, with its
president, John Dilworth, and
secretary, Jas. Wilks, both resident at Kelowna, embraced too
large a territory and should, in
his opinion, be divided. The
membership fee was only fifty
| cents and each member was entitled to the literature distributed
by the provincial government.
He hoped all present would become members that evening.
Prof. Thornber next spoke. He
said he would not advise any
section going into only one horticultural crop if it could grow
more, as could undoubtedly be
done here. He believed that
apples and peaches should be
m vde the specialty of this section. No cull fruit should be
grown but only such as would
command the highest prices.
The speaker pointed out the mistake made in some sections of
planting only early apples or
peaches. This should be avoided
and fruit ripening at different
seasons grown, so as to render
handling more convenient. He
would not recommend, among apples, the growing of Yellow New-
t)wn Pippins as they would not
do well at a greater elevation
than 1,200 feet above sea level
and this was about the altitude
of Penticton. He could recommend the Spitzenburg as a fine
red apple, but it only bore well
every second year. The Rome
Beauty was one of the best yield-
ers but was not of a very fine
quality.   The Winesap and Jona
than were good, and the Wagner
excellent, early bearing, of a fine
quality and a ready seller.
As regarded planting, it was
hist to set out four rows of one
variety and four rows of another.
and apples should not be planted
closer than 27A feet apart where
no fillers were used, and not less
than 33 feet where they were.
He did not approve of planting
fillers as he had never seen a
man who would cut out a healthy
bearing peach tree to make room
for his apples when the trees got
large. The triangular system of
planting was most economical as
the trees were an exact distance
apart in every direction, and
more could be planted to the
While the trees were coming
into bearing, potatoes, cabbage,
onions and other vegetables, or
strawberries, raspberries and
blackberries might be grown between the rows, but should not
be planted too near the trees,
and the land should be kept well
cultivated. He would advise
someone growing peach trees or
other nursery stock as thousands
of trees would be required here
for a great many years. The
professor recommended the
planting of only one year old
trees. These should not be too
large and should be headed to
within eighteen inches of the
ground. This gave a strong
trunk and a low-set tree. Large
trees with branches were not
worth planting.
In pruning a tree which runs
its limbs up, the branches should
be cut to an outer bud. This
caused the tree to spread. If the
habits of the tree were spreading, pruning should be done to
inner- buds. This caused the new
growth to be thrown inward and
thus kept the tree more compact.
This would apply respectively to
sweet and sour cherries as well
as to different kinds of apples.
A cherry tree should not be
pruned after it was four years
The interest in the meeting
was heightened by a great many
questions being asked. To these
the professor gave clear and concise answers thus bringing out
many additional points of value.
He did not approve of leaving a
leader in an apple tree, but
rather that the tree should be induced to spread. Chalk and
a blackboard were used freely in
illustrating various points, especially in pruning, while different kinds of orchard machinery
were also described. He believed
in deep, thorough tillage. The
ground should be plowed every
spring at least, if possible, and
this should be followed by cultivation'or harrowing every two
weeks until the end of August.
Peaches, apples and cherries
grew best with twelve per cent,
of moisture. The moisture could
be ascertained by weighing, if
necessary, drying and then
weighing again, but an experienced person could judge the
quantity of moisture in the soil
by its appearance.
When irrigation was done the
ground should be thoroughly
soaked. There was no better way
to ruin a tree than by keeping
the surface wet while the soil
beneath was dry. A thorough
irrigation every two weeks
should be sufficient in most cases.
The speaker said that the soil
of the Okanagan lacked humus.
This could be supplied by growing clover and plowing it under.
Fall rye was excellent for the
same purpose as were also Canada pea and vetch. About ai
bushel of rye should be planted
to the acre. This should be done
in August and plowed down in
the following April or May.
There was no better way to add
humus and nitrogen. Rye, vetch
and Canada pea would  be lest
for  the   first   few   years after
which clover might be  used  for
j the purpose.
In treating of fruit pests, he
, said that he had not found cod-
! ling moth here, but he had found
I peach mildew, peach leaf curl,
| and bud moth. If the codling
moth ever appeared the best way
to destroy it was to spray with a
lime-sulphur solution, or with
the following: 5 oz. copper carbonate, 3 pints ammonia, 3 pints
water; this diluted with water
to 45 to (i!) gallons. Every pear
tree that has black spots on the
leaves should be marked and
sprayed in the following spring
while in bud with lime-sulphur.
For Apple scab spraying should
be done with bordeaux mixture
just before the trees blossom.
The life of the climbing cutworm
was from two to four years.
The speaker recommended thorough cultivation, poisoning with
bran and Paris green or spraving
with arsenate of lead. Some
plant a clover crop and the worm
attacks the clover instead of the
trees. A good plan to prevent
the worms climbing the trees
was to get pieces of tin cut so as
to go around the trees in a funnel shape opening downwards.
The tins would be fastened by
wires and a little cotton batting
would be used to prevent them
injuring the trees. The worms
would not be able to pass these
protections. The only way to
get rid of pear blight was to
watch the trees and cut out the
black blotches in the wood both
summer and winter. Ants could
be destroyed by a four per cent,
solution of formic acid. The
bud moth lays its eggs in the bud
it has eaten off and may be destroyed by spraying with arsenate of lead.
A blackboard demonstration of
the California stub system of
pruning grapes was given. No
trellises are used and the vines
are pruned to two buds each
year. They are thus kept down
to about two feet in height, with
a spread of about four feet. The
plants should be set about eight
feet apart and six or eight
bunches of grapes are sufficient
for a vine to bear.
Varieties recommended were :
grapes -Black Hamburg, Sweet
Water, Thompson's Seedless, Alexander, and Tokay ; peaches-
Pearly Alexander, Triumph, Wonderland, Foster, Wheatland, Malta or Muir, Elberta. Alexander
and Triumph were especially
recommended for places subject
to late frosts. The pears to be
recommended were: Anjou, Winter Nellis, and Cornice ; the
cherries, Bing, Lambert, Windsor, and Royal Ann ; the plums,
Peach plum, Pond's Seedling, Italian Prune. The Hemskirke
was one of the best varieties of
Mr. Dobie then addressed the
meeting on Soils and Fertilizers,
emphasizing by numerous instances the value of commercial
fertilizers in the production of
crops. Lime, potash and phosphoric acid were the chief mineral elements required by the soil
and if either were deficient the
crop would be proportionately
small. Stable manure should be
very carefully looked after and!
not allowed to evaporate or drain ,
away its substance. Nitrogen
might be supplied by plowing
down leguminous plants.
At the conclusion of Mr. Do-
bie's lecture Prof. Thornber was
asked to recommend varieties of
roses that he thought would do
well here. In reply he stated
that the work he had been engaged in had not given him a
very good opportunity to study
roses, but he thought the American Beauty, Golden Gate. Matier
and Liberty exceptionally fine
varieties. Among the hardy
varieties were Rosa Rugosa,  or

At the close of the  meeting
fourteen names were added to
the list of members of the Farmers'   Institute.     It  might  be
j mentioned that the   fifty  cents
; membership fee is retained by
I the local institute and that all

supplying of literature and the
providing of lecturers is borne
by the  provincial   government.

The band was in attendance and
this the first appearance of the
Summerland L. O. L. proved an
important event.
Many Summerland people attended the Orange walk at Revelstoke last Monday, and all report a good day.
As the guests of the young
ladies of Summerland, the gentlemen of the Athletic Association
gathered on Tuesday evening at
a banquet prepared and conducted by their fair hostesses. It had
been planned to have this event
take place in the Peach Orchard
Park, but owing to an otherwise
welcome rain which had been
falling during the day, it was
necessary to diverge from the
original arrangements, and Empire Hall was made the scene of
festivities. The guests arrived
at seven o'clock, each gentleman
being conducted in very charming manner to his appointed seat
at the tables. The board was
provided with an abundance of
good things arranged in that
grace and neatness peculiar to
girls of fine taste. After thanks
had been returned by Prof. A.
G. Campbell, all present did
justice to the generous supply of
sandwiches, salads, cakes, ice
cream, lemonade, etc. When
this part of the evening's entertainment had been disposed of
the chairlady, Miss Ella Smith,
called the assemblage to order,

"The Americans won't let the Fin-
lander hold me for ransom, you may
depend upon that."
It was a woebegone look the gallant
captain cast ou the demure and determined maiden; then, feeling his daughter's eye upon him, he turned toward
"I'm going, father." she said, with a
firmness quite equal to bis own, and
he, ou his part, recognized when his
daughter had toed the danger line. He
indulged In a laugh that bad little of
mirth In it.
"All I ciin say Is that I am thankful
you haven't made up your minds to
kidnap the czar. Of course you are
g i|Ug, Ivute     So a in 1."
���    S the sailing boat cast off and
A      was   shoved   away   from   the
l\ side of the steamer there were
I eight men alward. Six grasped
the oars, and the young clerk who had
signed the documents given to him by
Ihe captain took the rudder, motioning
Lermontoff to a seat beside him. All
the forward part of the boat and Indeed the space well back toward the
stern was piled with boxes and.ba^s.
"What Is this place called'/" asked
the prince, but the young steersman
did not reply.
Tying the boat to Iron rings at the
small landing where the steps began,
three of the men shipped their oars.
Kacb threw a bag over his shoulder,
walked up half a dozen steps and waited. The clerk motioned Lermontoff to
follow, so be stepped on tbe shelf of
rock and looked upward at the rugged
stairway cut between the main Island
and an outstanding perpendicular ledge
of rock. The steps were so narrow
that the procession bad to move up in
Indian file���three men with bags, then
tbe prince and the clerk, followed by
three more men with boxes. Lermontoff counted 237 steps, which brought
him to an elevated platform projecting
from a doorway cut in the living rock,
but shielded from all sight of the sea.
The eastern sun shone through this
doorway, but did not Illumine sufficiently the large room whose walls,
celling and floor were of solid stone.
At the farther end a man In uniform sat behind a long table on which
burned an oil lamp with a green shade.
At his right band stood a broad, round
brazier containing glowing coals, after
the oriental fashion, and the officer
was uoldlng his two hands over it and
rubbing them together. The room
nevertheless struck chill as a cellar,
and Lermontoff heard a constant
smothered roar of water.
The clerk, stepping forward and saluting, presented to the governor seated there the papers and envelopes given him by the captain. The officer selected a blue sheet of paper and scrutinized It for a momeut under the
"Where are the others?"
"We have landed first the supplies,
governor, then the boat will return for
the others."
The governor nodded and struck a
bell with his open palm. There entered a big man with a buncb of keys at
bis belt, followed by another, wbo carried a lighted lantern.
"No. 0," said the governor to the
"1 beg yonr pardon, sir. am I a prisoner?" asked Lermontoff.
The governor gave utterance to a
sound thnt was more like tbe grunt of
a pig than the ejaculation of a man.
He did not answer, but looked up nt
tlie questioner, and the latter saw that
his face, gaunt almost as that of a
living skeleton, wns pallid as putty.
"No. 0." he repeated, whereupon the
Jailer and tbe man with tbe lantern
put a hand each on Lerniontoff's shoulders and marched him away. They
walked together down n long passage,
the swaying lantern casting its yellow
rays on the Iron bolts of door after
door until at last the Jailer stopped,
threw back bIx bolts. Inserted ft key,
unlocked the door nnd pushed It ponderously open. The lantern showed It
to be built like tbe door of n safe; but,
unlike that of a safe. It opened Inward.
As soon as the door came ajar Lermontoff heard the sound of flowing
water, and when the three entered he
noticed a rapid little stream sparkling
In the rays of the lantern at the further eud of the cell. He saw a shelf
of rock and a stone bench before It.
The Jailer placed his hands on a black
loaf, while the other held up the lantern.
"That will last you four days." said
the Jailer.
"Well, my son. Judging from the un
appetizing look of It, I think It will
last me much longer."
The Jailer made no reply, but he nnd
the man with the lantern retired, draw-
���4iig the door heavily after them. Lermontoff heard the holts thrust Into
place and the turn of the key. Then
silence fell, all but the bubbling of the
water. He stood still In the center of
the cell, bis bands thrust deep In the
pockets of his overcoat, and. in spite of
tills heavy garment, he shivered a little.
"Jack, my boy," he muttered, "this
is a new deal, as they say In tlie west.
I can Imagine a man going crazy here
if It wasn't for that stream. I never
knew what darkness meant before.
Well, let's find out the size of our kingdom."
He groped  for tlie  wall  and.  Stum-
'  bling against the stone  bench,  whose
| existence   he   had    forgotten,   pitched
I bead forward to the table and sent the
I four day loaf rolling on the floor.   He
made  an   Ineffectual   grasp  after  the
loaf,   fearing   It   might   fall   Into   the
| stream   and   lie   lost   to   him,   but   he
! could not find It. and n>w Ills designs
for measuring the cell  gave place to
tlie desire of finding that loaf.   Ho got
down on his hands and knees nnd felt
tlie  stone  floor  Inch   by   Inch   for half
an hour, ns he estimated the time, but
never once did he touch the bread.
"How helpless a man is In the dark,
after all!" lie muttered to himself. "I
must do tills systematically, beginning
at tbe etlge of file stream."
On all fours he reached the margin
of the rivulet nnd felt Ills way along
the brink till his head struck the opposite wall. He turned round, took up
a position flint he guessed was three
feet nearer the door and again traversed the room, becoming so eager In
the search that lie forgot for tbe moment tbe horror of his situation. Just
as when engaged In a chemical experiment everything else vanished from
his mind, and thus after several journeys back nnd fortli he was again reminded of tlie existence of the stone
bench by butting against It when he
knew   lie   was  several   feet  from  th*
At lite  lartliei end a mnn  tn  uniform
sol litiklwl ii liimj table.
wall. Rubbing his bend, he muttered
some unfavorable phrases regarding
tbe immovable bench, then crawled
round it twice anil resumed his transverse excursions. At Inst he reached
the wall thnt held the door and now
with breathless eagerness rubbed his
shoulder against it till lie came to tbe
opposite corner. He knew he had
touched with knees nnd bands practically every square inch of space In
the floor, and yet no bread.
"Now, that's H disaster," cried he.
getting up on his feet and stretching
himself ������still, a mnn doesn't starve
lu four days. I've cast my brend on
the waters, It hns evidently gone
down the stream Now. what's to hinder a mnn escaping by menus of that
water course? Still, if he did. whnt
would be the use? He'd float out into
the Rnltic sen nnd If able to swim
round tlie rock would merely be compelled to knock nt the front door and
beg admission ngnlu. No. by Jove!
There's the bout, bill they probnbly
guard It night nnd day. and a man in
tile water would hnve no chance
against one In the boat. Perhaps
there's gratings between the cells. Of
course there's hound to be. No one
would leave the lied of n strenni clenr |
"or any one to navigate, Prisoners
would visit ench other In their cells,
ind that's not allowed in nn.v respectable prison. I wonder If there's nny
one next door on either side of me.
An Iron grid won't keep out the
sound. I'll try." And. going ngnln to
I lie margin of the watercourse, he
shouted several times as loudly ns he
could, lint only n sepulchral echo, ns
If from a vault, replied to him.
"I Imagine the adjoining cells ore
empty. No enjoyable companionship
to be expected here. I wonder If
they've got the oilier poor devils up
from the steamer yet. I'll sit down on
I lie bench and listen,"
He could hnve found the bench and
shelf almost Immediately by groping
round tbe wall, but lie determined to
exercise his sense of direction, to pit
himself against the darkness.
"I need not hurry," he said, "1 may
be a long time here."
In his mind he had a picture of the
cell, but now that he listened to the
water it seemed to have changed Its
direction, nnd he found he hnd to rearrange tills mental picture and make a
different set of calculations to lit the
new position. Then he shuffled slowly
forward with hands outstretched, but
be came to tlie wall and not to the
bench. Again he mapped out his route,
again endeavored and again failed.
"This Is bewildering," he muttered.
"How tlie darkness hnllles a man! For
tbe tlrst time In my life I appreciate to
tlie full the benediction of clod's command. 'Let there he light.' "
He stood perplexed for a few moments, and, deeply  thinking. Ills hands
automatically performed tin operation
as the servants of hnblt.    They took
I from tils pocket ins cigarette case, se
��� lecled a  tube of tobacco, placed it be-
! tween Ins lips, searched another pocket, brought out a matchbox nnd struck
a   light.     The   striking  of   the   match
startled  Lermontoff as if It had been
j au explosion: then he Inughed. holding
the match above his bend, nnd there at
bis feet saw the loaf of black  bread.
j  It seemed as if somebody  had twisted
I the room end for end.    The door was
i where   lie   thought   the   stream   wns.
and  thus he  learned  (hat sound  gives
no   Indication   of  direction   to   a   mau
blindfolded.      The    match    began    to
wane, and  feverishly  he  lit bis cigarette.
"Why didn't I think of the matches.
j and. oh. what a pity I failed to till my
j pockets  with  tlieni   that  uight  of tbe
��� professor's dinner party!  To think that
matches are selling at this moment in
Sweden 250 for a halfpenny!"
(Jlllded   by   the spark   nt   the  end  of
: Ills cigarette, lie sought the bench and
j sat down upon it.    He was surprised to
j find himself so little depressed as was
actually the case     He did not  feel iu
the least disheartened,   Something was
going to happen on his behalf,   (if that
be was guile certain. It was perfectly
ridiculous that even lu Itussia a loyal
subject who had never done any Illegal
net In bis life, n nobleman of the empire and a friend of tlie czar should
be Incarcerated for long without trial
and even without accusation. !Ie bad
no enemies lhat he knew of and many
friends, and yet he experienced a
vague uneasiness when be remembered
thnt his owu course of life had been
sucb that be would not be missed by
his frieuds. For more thnn a year he
had been in England, nt sen and lu
America, so much absorbed lu his researches that he hnd written no private letters worth speaking of. and If
nry friend were asked his whereabouts
he was likely to reply:
"Oh. Lermontoff is in some Herman
university town or in Kuglnild or trtiv
pIIiil' ei��>'-' ������     i   i"i 't  ���.������.,���!  hill
or heard of him for months. Lost in a
wilderness or lu no experiment perhaps."
These unhappy meditations were interrupted by the clnug of bolts. He
thought at first it was his own door
that was being opened, but a moment
lnl?r knew It was the door of tbe next
cell upstream. The sound of course
could not penetrate the extremely thick
wall, but came through the aperture
whose roof arched the watercourse.
From the voices he estimated that several prisoners were being put iuto cne
cell, and he woudered whether or not
he cared for a companion. It would all
depend. If fellow prisoners bated each
other, their enforced proximity might
prove unpleasant
"We are hungry," he heard one say.
"Bring us food."
The Jailer laughed.
"I will give you something to drink
"That's right!" three voices shouted.
"Vodka, vodka!"
Then the door clanged shut again,
nnd he heard the murmur of voices In
Russian, but could not make out what
was said. Oue of the uew prisoners,
groping round, appeared to have struck
the stone bench, as he himself hnd
done. Tlie man in the next cell swore
coarsely, and Lermontoff, judging from
such snatches of their conversation ns
he could hear that they were persons
of a low order, felt no desire to muke
their more Intininre acquaintance nnd
so did not shout to them, ns he hnd Intended to do. And now he missed
something that had become familiar;
thought It was n cigarette he desired,
for the one he hnd lit hnd been smoked
to his very lips, then he recognized it
wns the murmur ot tlie strenm that
had ceased.
"Ah, they enn shut It off." he snld;
"Hint's Interesting. I must investigate
and learn whether or no there Is communication between tlie cells; not very
likely though."
He crawled on hands nnd knees until he came to the bed of the strenm.
which was now damp, but empty.
Kneeling down In Its course, be worked his way toward the lower cell nnd.
as he expected, came to stout iron bars.
Crouching thus he sacrificed a second
match aird estimated that the distance
between tlie two cells wns as much as
ten feet of solid rock and saw nlso
thnt behind the perpendicular iron bnrs
were another horizontal set. then nn-
otlier perpendicular, then n fourth
While In this position he wns star
tied by n piercing scream to the renr.
He bucked out fronn tlie tunnel nnd
stood upright once more. He beard tbe
sound of people splashing round In the
wnter. Tlie screnmer begun to jabber
like n maniac, punctuating bis ravings
with shrieks. Another was cursing
vehemently and a third nppenllng to
the snhits. Lermontoff quickly knelt
down In the watercourse, this time
facing tlie upper cell, and struck his
third match. He saw thnt n steel
shield, reminding him of tlie thin shutter between the lenses of n enmern,
hnd been shot across the tunnel behind the second group of cross bnrs,
nnd ns nn engineer lie could not but
admire the skill of the practical expert who hnd constructed this diabolical device, for in spite of the pressure
on the other sid > hnrdly n drop of wn- i
ter oozed through, ne tried to reneh
the shield, but could not. It wns just
beyond tbe touch of bis fingers with
Ills arm thrust through the two sets
of bnrs, but If he could hnve stretched
thnt fnr with the first hnr retarding
his shoulder, he knew his hnnd would
be helpless eveu If he hnd some weup-
on to puncture tlie steel shield. The
men would be drowned liefore he could
nceomplish Anything unless he wns nt
the lever In the pns<nge outside.
Crawling into tils coll again, he heard
no more of tlie chatter and cries of
the maniac, nnd he surmised that the
other two were fhrl ting for places on
hen eh or shelf, which wns amply large
enough to hnve supported both hnd

was to take place between Summerland and Kelowna on July 1,
and one from K. S. Hogg, Sec'y
of the Summerland baseball team
to the PRESS, in reply to same.
To E. A. Eagel, Esq.,
Dear Sir,-Yours of the 24th
inst. to hand. Your announcement that a baseball match had
been arranged between your
town and Kelowna for the 1st
came as a surprise to the executive of our association. We are
perfectly willing for you to play
the match on our grounds but as
we have already expended all the
money in hand on our prize list,
we are therefore unable to offer
a prize for the baseball match.
As regards gate receipts, I might
say that the citizens of Penticton
having recently purchased a
sports ground it has been decided
by the trustees, who are holding
the ground till incorporation,
that all such receipts shall be
used for the further development
of the ground. So you see that
by playing your match here and
bringing the non-playing enthusiasts with you, you will be helping along one of the best institutions in the country, i. e., a public athletic ground and race
Penticton is always willing to
back up any neighboring town,
either on its especial annual
sports day or any charitable enterprise, and if you conclude to
play your match elsewhere, then,
1 and the rest of the executive
can draw no other conclusion
than that you are attempting to
"butt in" on what we have a
right to consider Penticton's annual sports day. -��I "am writing
Mr. Joscelyn, the secretary of
the Kelowna team, a letter to the
same effect. I may say we have
��� arranged a special excursion from
Kelowna touching at all points
and trust to see you and Summerland generally here on the
1st. Yours sincerely,
J. W. Edmonds,
Sec'y-Treas. P. A. A.
Penticton, June 20, 1908.
To thp Editor of THE Penticton Phek.s :
Dear Sir,���It appears that
some of the Penticton people are
feeling a little hurt at Summer-
land in connection with the 1st
of July, and a few words of explanation may, we trust, clear
the air. We ask you, therefore,
to kindly publish this letter so
that the facts of the case may
have as wide a circulation as
Late in April delegates from
the baseball clubs of Kelowna,
Peachland, Summerland and
Penticton met at Penticton,
formed the South Okanagan
Baseball League, and drew up a
schedule of games for the season.

would follow the ball players, as
the game here with Kelowna had
roused keen interest, and the
reply we received from your secretary accusing us of "butting
in" was in the nature of a slap
in the face that we were quite
unprepared for. That the Kel-
mvna club should ask for a substantial prize was only reasonable, as they would have had to
give up their gate receipts at
home (which, by-the-way, a-
mounted to over $75), and it
speaks well -for their sporting
spirit and their goodwill towards
Penticton, that they should have
been willing to give up a certainty and take their chances of a
)!50 prize.
Quite possibly this game would
have been worth nothing to your
people, who do not appear to be
interested in ball games, but
what about the 175 or more
people who went to Kelowna,
besides as many more perhaps
from that town ? Would this
number of people have been
worth nothing to your town on
the 1st of July? If so, then there
can be no cause for soreness. Is
the lack of foresight in your
sports committee to be charged
against Summerland ?
We understand that your 1st
of July sports were a great success and we are heartily glad of
it, and only sorry that Summer-
land was not better represented.
We venture the assertion, however, that more Summerland
people were at Penticton on the
1st of July than there were Penticton people here on 25th of
We trust we have made it clear
that the baseball club here cannot be blamed that Summerland
went north instead of south on
the 1st, and in conclusion express
