Another society lodge has been
organized   in   Penticton.     Last
week we recorded the organization of a large lodge of the Loyal
Orange Association.    This  week
it is one of the Ancimt Free and
Accepted Masons, and if one  is
to judge the progressivenessof a j
community   by   the   number of,
social societies to be found in its
midst then Penticton, apart from
its other claims  to same,   could
be considered as progress itself.
The Lodge  of Masons organ-
i v d on Wednesday evening, like
the lodges of its sister societies,
started off with that vim and en-
th 1: iasm  characteristic  of  the
peo le of Penticton in any or all
of    their   undertakings.     With
seve al grand lodge members and
two of its officers among thei-
number the local members of the
Ancie t Craft were given a leter
of disp 'nsation by the Most Wor-
I shipful Grand Maste ��� of B. C,
j who delegated his Deputy in this
I district, Rt. Wor. Bro. Frel
1 Barnes, of Enderby to deliver
' the sam 3. Besides the D. D. G.
; M.  there were   present   thirty
distinguished   officers   of   other
Maso.,ic lodges.
After the secret session of the
lodge was held all adjourned with
the members of the  local  lodge
to the banquet-room where mine
host Bro. W. H. Tapley had pre-
! pared an amp'e and pleasing re-
I past. The table presented a scene
long to be- remembered by those
who sat down to paitake of the
deli:acies theraon.     Palms and
ferns intcrspor.se 1  with  garden
and hot-house flowers lent  their
fragrance to that of the flower-
; bedecked column that designated
: the Junior Warden's post, while
: epicurean fastidiousness was sat-
i isfied by the delicacies  provided j the   cannery
j popularly known as the ancient
land mark of Penticton. The
tree has a trunk circumference
of 5J feet and a spread circumference of 45 feet. The annual
I average yield of its fruit is es-
' timated at one hundred and fifty
dollars. As yet the giant tree
shows no traces of decay or failing quantity or quality of its
fruit. The gavel was presented

of the B. C. Legislative Assembly, and was accompanied by his wee'<

The Northwest Crop.
According to all reports obtainable from the prairie provinces
the crop outlook is exceedingly
bright. Rains have been frequent and the wheat crop is well
advanced, while seeding of both
barley and oats has been completed. The season is yet early
and the danger from fall frosts
is therefore, eliminated. This is
in marked contrast to the conditions existing at this period last
year. A year ago seeding did
not begin until May 15, the latest for twenty-four years. Th's
year it was in full swing by
Apiil 12, there being only six
earlier seasons during the past
2) years, and those merely by a
f sw days. Experience has shown
that in the seasons when seeding
began early the crops invariably
escaped frost.
Last year the total acreage in
grain amounted to 4,707,483
acres, while this season it reaches
naarly six million acres. From
those facts the farmers and grain
(1 'alers have confidence that this
year's crop will be by a big margin the largest and best in the
history of the west.
C jupled with the prospects of
a good crop, come reports of the
loosening up of the money market, and it is evident that the
high rates of interest that have
been obtained for the past few
years will not prevail much longer. The prospects for the future
are, therefore, bright for the
entire west and we believe especially so for British Columbia,
for another good wheat crop in
the prairie provinces will so
placi the farmers upon their feet
that large numbers, who have
been looking to the mild climate
and the fertile valleys of British
Columbia, will be able with advantage to make the change of
residence. Many of those have
already acquired fruit lands in
the Okanagan and would have
moved here last fall but for the
partial failure of crops and the
general financial depression.
The coming fall will in all probability see the largest immigration on record.

and Friday of this week at the
Second Annual Meeting of the
Association. The results of the
contest will be seen later.
Some might think that in a
place like Summerland, where
the sale of intoxicating liquors
never has been, is not now, nor
ever will he, the people would
have little interest in the great
Local Option campaign being
waged in B. C. at the present
time; but the heartiest interest
was shown by the large audiences
which gathered in Empire Hall
on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings of this wee!;.
While the crowd was assembling on the wharf to view the
sports on the 25th there was an
exciting scene enacted. Messrs.
Wallace and Fulton were driving
a younj and spirited horse; some
Indians had copied the Summer-
land merchants and had placed
their goods so as to obstruct the
street; the horse got frightened,
shied to one side and overturned
the rig, throwing the occupants
out. Mr. Wallace was quite badly hurt. The Indians should be
taught a lesson, not to copy the
Summerland merchants; and we
expect our High Chief Constable
to give them to understand that
our merchants have a monopoly
of the streets < and that others
are debarred from obstructing
the highway. With his sanction, however, they can fence up
the street.
Miss I. L. Murcutt, who some
weeks ago delighted Summer-
land people in lectures here on
her travels, was introduced to us
again on Sunday evening last by
Rev. Jas. Ho id, chairman of the
meeting. On this occasion her
subject was 'National Righteousness,' and while she furnished
her listeners with interesting information regarding the British
empire along rightous lines, she
punctuated hei- discourse by
many a well-aimed blow at her
sworn enemy, the liiuor traffic.
A duet by Miss C. Tate and Alex
Smith, and a solo by Ward Dan-
can, helped to make the evening
entertaining. The address on
Monday evening was even more
largely attended than that of the
evening before. Tho subject,
'White Slaves of G.-ent Britain,'
was well dealt with by the speaker. She depicted scenes from
the slums of the city of London,
explaining the sweating system,
the cheapness of labor and the
horrible state of sanitation in
which those folk live. The lecturer then turned the tables ana
gave us a view of life as seen
among the classes, many of
whom know less about the conditions in the east end of their
own city than we are permitted
to know through listening to
Miss Murcutt, who has seen them
as they really exist. From Tuesday night's discourse we learned
more about that portion of the
British empire to which all eyes
are now turning: New Zealand.
the home of democracy. It- was
indeed refreshing to hear of a
place where the relations between the rich and the poor are
so well handled as they are in
that island dominion. The work
being done by Miss Murcutt in
our province cannot be too highly commended. We believe thai

remarked, were "wafted to the skies

angle, with windows nn one sldo looking into the forest and on the other
giving an extended view across the
valley. The front room adjoining the
parlor was to be Dorothy's very owu,
and Ihe end room belonged to Katherine, be said, as long as she behaved
herself. If Dorothy ever wished to

had to do was to call upon the captain,
and he would lend Ills aid. at which
proffer of assistance Katherine tossed
her head and said slit- would try Ihe
room for n week und If she didn't like
it out Dorothy would have to go.
There followed days ami nights of
revelry���hops, concerts, entertainments
of all sorts, with n more pretentious
hull on Saturday night, when the
week-tired man from New York arrived in the afternoon to find temperature 20 degrees lower and the altitude very much higher than wns the
case in his busy otlice in the city.
Katherine reveled lu this round of excitement, and. Indeed, so, in a milder
Way, did Dorothy. After the functions were over the girls enjoyed a
comforting chat with one another In
their drawing room, all windows open,
aud the moon tt-s'dning down over the
luminous valley, which it seemed to
fill with mother of pearl dust.
Young .1. K. Henderson cf New
York, having danced rep'iitedly with
Katherine on Saturday night, unexpectedly turned up for the hop on the
following Wednesday, when he Again
danced repeatedly with the same joyous girl, it being somewhat unusual
for a keen business man to take a
four hours' journey during an afternoon in the middle of the week and as
n consequence arrive late at his office
next morning. Dorothy began to wonder If a concrete fo"matlon, associated
with the nam!' of Prince Ivan Lermon-

"After two or three days of anxious
waiting there etnas ' crushing communication from the admiralty which
continued my worst fears and set uie
at crossing the bridge again, 1 was ordered to report next morning at 11 at
committee room 3 in the admiralty aud
bring with me full particulars pertaining to the tiring of gun number so-and-
so of the Consternation's equipment on
such a dale. 1 wonder since that 1 did
not take to drink. We have every facility for tbat sort of thing in this club.
"However, at 11 next day I presented myself at the committee room aud
found in session the grimmest looking
live men I have ever yet been culled
upon lo face. Collectively tbey were
about ten times worse lu appearance
than the courtmartial I bad previously
encountered, Four of the men I did
not know, but the fifth 1 recognized at
once, having often seen ids portrait.
He is Admiral Sir .lohn I'endergest,
popularly known in tbe service as
'Old Grouch,' a blue terror who knows
absolutely nothing of mercy. Tbe lads
in the service say be looks so disagreeable because lie Is sorry be was uot
born u hanging judge. Picture u face
us cleanly cut as that of some severe
old Uouian senator, a face as hard as
marble, quite as cold and nearly as
white, rescued from the uppearance of
n death mask by a pair of piercing
eyes that glitter like steel. When looking nt him it is quite impossible to
believe that such u personage has ever
been u boy who played pranks on b's
masters. Indeed, Admiral Sir ,lobu
i'endergest seems to have sprung, fully
uniformed and forbidding, from the
earth, like those soldiers of mythology.
1 was so taken aback at confronting
such a man that I never noticed my
old friend. Billy Richardson, seated at
the table as one of the minor officials
Of the committee. Billy tells me I
looked rather white about the lips
when I realized what was ahead of
me. and 1 dare say he wns right. My
consolation Is that 1 didn't get red. as
is my disconcerting habit. 1 was accommodated with a chair, and then a
ferrety faced little mnn began asking
me questions, consulting every now
and then n foolscap sheet of paper
which was before him. Others were
ready to note down the answers.
" 'When did you fire the new gun
from the Consternation in the Baltic?*
"Dear Miss Amhurst. I have confess-
on to yon thnt I am not brilliant, and.
indeed, such confession was quite unnecessary, for yon must speedily have
recognized the fact, but here Irt me
boast for a line or two of my one accomplishment, which Is mathematical
accuracy. When I make experiments
I don't note the result by rule of
thumb. My uuswer to tbe ferret faced
man was prompt and complete.
" 'At twenty-three minutes, seventeen seconds past in a. m��� on May
the 3d of this year.' wan my reply.
"The five high officials remalued perfectly impassive, but the two stenographers seemed somewhat taken by
surpiise. and one of them whispered,
'Did you say fifteen seconds, sir?"
"Tie said seventeen.' growled Sir
John I'endergest in a voice that seemed to come out of a sepulcher.
������ 'Who sighted the gun?'
" 'I did. sir.'
" 'Why did not the regular gunner
do that':'
" 'He did, sir. but 1 also took observations aud raised the muzzle .001)327
of an inch.'
" 'Was your gunner Inaccurate, then.
to that extent?'
" 'No, sir; but I had weighed the *nj-
muiilllon and found it short by two
ounces nnd thirty-seven grains.'
"I must uot bore you with all the
questions and answers. I merely give
these us samples. They questioned me
about the recoil, the action of the guu.
tin' stale of this, that und tbe other
after firing, and luckily I was able to
answer to a dot every query put to
me. At the finish oue of the judges
asked me to give in my own words my
opinion of the gun. Admiral Sir John
glal'ed nt him as be put this question,
for of course to any expert the answers
I had furnished, nil taken together,
gave nn accurate verdict on the gun.
assuming my statements to have been
correct, which I maintained tbey were.
However, as Sir John made no verbal
comment I offered my opinion as tersely ns I could.
" 'Thank you. Lieutenant Drummond.'
rumbled Sir John iu his deep voice,
as if lie were pronouncing sentence,
and. my testimony completed, the committee rose.
"I was out in the street liefore Billy
Richardson overtook me. and then he
culled himself to my attention by a
resounding ship on the shoulder.
" 'AInn. my boy.' he cried, 'you have
done yourself proud. Your fortune's
"As how?' I asked, shaking him by
the hand.
" 'Why, we've been for weeks holding an inquiry on this blessed gun. and
the question is whether or not a lot
more of them are to he made. Y'ou
ku >w what an opinionated beast Old
Grouch i-. Well, my boy. you have corroborated his opinion of Ihe gun in
every detail. He is such a brow beating, tyrannical brute that the rest of
the committee would rather like to go
against him if they dared, but you have
pill a snoke in their wheel. Why, Sir
John never said "thank you" to a human Icing since lie was born until
twenty-seven minutes and fifteen seconds nfter 11 tills morning, as you
wool I put il.' and nl Ihe time of writing tills letter tills surmise of Billy's
appears to be justified, for tbe tape in

committee lias unanimously decided In

regarded as a trinmpd tor me cnair-
man.   Admiral   Sir   John   Pendergest,
with various letters after his name.
"Dear Miss Amhurst, this letter, as I
feared, has turned out intolerably long,
and, like our first conversation, it is all
about myself. But then, you see, you
are the only one on the other side of
the water to whom I have confided my
selfish worries, and I believe you to lie
so kind hearted that I am sure you
will not censure me for this once exceeding the limits of friendly correspondence. Having been deeply depressed during all tile previous long
days, the sudden reaction urges me to
go out into I'all Mall, fling my cap in
the air and whoop, which action is
quite evidently n remnant of my former cowboy nspirntions. Truth to tell,
the llussinn business seems already
forgotten except by my stout old captain on tbe Consternation or my uncle. The strenuous Sir John has had
me haled across the ocean merely to
give testimony, lusting about thirty-
five minutes, when, with a little patience, lie might have waited till the
Consternation herself arrived or else
have cabled for us to try the gun at
Bar Harbor. 1 suppose, however, that
after my unfortunate contretemps with
Russia our government was ufraid I'd
chip a corner off tbe United States and
that they'd have to pay for it. So perhaps, nfter all. it was greater economy
to bring me across on tbe liner Enthti-
"By   the   way,   I   learned   yesterday

If 1 get on  iu  Russia, us  I hope and
sxpect,  I shall spend tbe rest of my

H SUMMER hotel that boasts ,i
thousand acres of forest, more
or less, which serve the purposes of a back yard, affords
its guests, even if all Its multitude of
rooms are occupied, at least oue spot
for each visitor to regard as bis or
her favorite nook. So large an extent
of woodland successfully delies landscape gardening. It Insists ou being
left alone, und Its very Immensity
rulses a io.ancial barrier against trimly kept gravel walks. There were
plenty of landscape garden walks in
the immediate vicinity of tbe hotel,
and some of them ambitiously penetrated Into tlie woods, relapsing from
the civilization of lienten gravel Into
a primitive thicket trull, which, bow-
ever, always led to some celebrated
bit of plcturesqueness���a waterfall, or a
pulpit rook outstanding like a tower, oi

face carved by nature from the cliff,
or a vlew|Kilnt jutting out over the
deep chasm of the valley, which usually supported a rustic summer house or
pavilion where uukuowu names were
carved ou the woodwork���the last resort of the undistinguished to achieve
immortality by means of a Jackknlfe.
Dorothy discovered n little E.len of
ber own. to which no discernible covert way led. for it was n >t conspicuous
enough to obtain mention In the little
gratis guide which the hotel furnished,
a pamphlet on coated paper filed with
hnlf tone engravings aud half extravagant eulogies of what it proclaimed to
be, un earthly paradise, with the rates
by tbe day or week given on the cover
page to show on wbut terms this paradise might be enjoyed.
Dorothy's bower was green and cool
and crystal, the ruggeduess of the
rocks softened by the wealth Of foliage.
A very limpid spring, high up and out
of sight among the leaves, sent Its
waters tinkling down the face of the
cliiT. ever filling a crystal clear lakelet
lit the foot, which yet wns never full.
Velvety nnd beautiful as was the moss
surrounding this pond it was nevertheless too damp to form an acceptable
couch for a liuniin being unions that
human being were brave enough lo risk
the rheumatic Inconveuiences which followed Rip Van Winkle's lorn sleep In
these very regions, so Dorothy always
carried    with   her   from   the   hotel   a
featherweight spider's web hammock.
which she deftly slung between two
saplings, their li;ht suppleness glviir
an-almost   pneumatic  effect   to   thi-
fairy net spread in a fairy glen, and
here the young woman swayed luxuriously in the relaxing dell bfs of nn
Indolence still too new to have become
commonplace or wearisome.
She always expected to road a great
deal in tbe hammock, but often the
book slipped unnoticed to the moss
and she lay looking upward nt the little disks of blue sky visible through
the checkering maze of green leaves,
cue afteruo-'ii, deserte.1 by the hitesj
piece of fictional lite:a'ure. marked in
plain figures on tbe paper cover that
protected the cloth binding one dollar
and a half, but sold at the department
store for $1.08, Dorothy lay half hypnotized by tho twinkling of (lie green
leaves above her. when she heard n
sweet voice singing a rollicking song
of the civil war and so knew that
Katherine was thus heralding her approach.
"Winn  johnny  comes marching  home
Hurrah!    Hurrah!
We'll give him n hearty welcome then.
Hurrah!    Hurrah!
The men will cheer, the hoys will shout.
The ladies they will nil turn out,
And we'll all feel guy
When Johnny pomes marching home."
Dorothy went slid further back into
tile history of her country antl gave a
faint imitation of an Indian war
whoop to let the oucomer know she
was welcome, and presently Katherine
burst impetuously through the dense
"So here you are, Miss Laziness,"
she cried.
"Here I inn. Miss Energy, or shall I

"Oh. heartless and heartbreaking

"The human soul." continued Kath

"Then he has written to you?"
"He bus uot."
"Oh, well, 1 give it up. Tell me the
tragedy iu your owu way."
For answer Kutherine withdrew her
hands from behind her and offered to
her friend a sheet of paper she had
been holding. Dorothy saw blazoned
on the top of il u coiii-of-urms and underneath 11 written in words of the
most formal nature was the Information that Prince Ivan Lermotttoff pre
sented his warmest regards to ('.iptaiii

, looked up from the document, aud her
friend said calmly:
"You see, they need another Katherine iu Russia."
"1 hope she won't lie like a  former
one, if all I've read of her is true.  This
letter was sent to your father, then?"
"It  was, and be seems to regard  it

hall  of   tbe   hotel,  so  that   every  one
might know what guests of distinction
the Matterhorn House held.    But the
most dxuspeniting  feature of  the situation is Hint this loiter has boon lying
I for days and .days at iCur cottage iu
Bar Harbor.    I am quite certain that
I left instructions for letters lo he for-
: warded,  but. as nothing came.  I  telegraphed  yesterday ii to 'tkj  people  who
hnve thkeu our bouse, nnd now a whole
; heap of belated correspondence has ar-
I rived, with a-note from our tenant sny-
l ing lie did not know our nddress.    You
will see at thevbottotn of the note that
] the prince asks my father to communicate  with  him  by  sending a   reply to
the  Consternation  at   New'' York,  but
, now tbe Consternation'bits sailed for
| England,   and   poor  John   must  hnve
I waited nnd waited in vain."
"Write care of the Consternation in
England." ��,     ,��:
"But .lack fold mev thnt the Consternation paid off tis soon as she arrived, and probably he will have gone
to Russia."
"If you address him at the admiralty
In London. Ihe letter will be forwarded wherever be happens to be."
"How do you know?"
"I have beard that sucb Is the case."
"But you're not sure, and I want to
he certain."
"Are  you  really   in  love  with  hhn,
"Of course  I   nm.     You  know  lint
verv wet!  i-"1 I -'-m-'*  ��>*  ���-���,��� .itmitii
unsapprenenslon to arise at tlie beginning, sucb as allows a silly author to
carry ou his story ty tlie four hundredth page of sucb trash as this."
And she gently touched with her toe
the unoffending volume which lay on
the ground beneath the hummock.
"Then why not adopt your father's
suggestion and cable? It isn't you who
nre cabling, you know."
"I couldn't consent to that.   It would
look as if we were In a hurry, wouldn't
It?"    '     ���
"Then let me cable."
"Y'ou?   To whom?"
"Hand   me   up   that  despised   book,
Kate, and I'll write my cablegram on
the  fly   leaf.     If you  approve  of  the
message, I'll go to the hotel nnd send
It nt once."
Katherine gave her the book nnd
lent the.little silver pencil which hung
jingling with other trinkets on the
chain nt her be't. Dorothy scribbled a
note, tore out the fly lenf nnd presented It to Katherine, who rend:
Alan   Drummond,   Bluewater   Cluh.   Tall
Mall.   London:
Tell Lament lhat his letter lo Captain
Kempt was delayed and did not reach
the captain until today. Captain Kempl's
reply will he sent under cover to you at
your club. Arrange for forwarding If
you leave England.
When Kutherlne finished rending she
looked up at her friend nnd exclaimed,
"Weill" giving that one word n inclining deep ns the clear pool on whose
borders she stood. .
Dorothy's fuee reddened ns If tlie
sinking western sun was shining full
upon it.
"Y'ou write to one another, then?"    ���
"And Is It a case of���
"No; friendship."
"Sure it Is nothing more than that?"
Dorothy shook liei'^beatl,    ,
"Dorothy, you are a brick; that's
what you are. You will do anything
to help a friend In trouble."
Dorothy smiled.
"I have so few friends thnt whutever
1 can do for them will not greatly tux
nny capabilities I may possess."
"Nevertheless. Dorothy. I thoroughly
appreciate what you have done. Y'ou
ditl not wish any one to know you were
corresponding with him, nnd yet you
never hositnted n moment when you
saw I was anxious."
"Indeed, Kate, there wns nothing to
conceal. Ours is a very oi'dfutiry exchange of letters. I huVe" only hud two
-one at Bar Harbor n'fCw* days nfter
he left and ���another'''longer one since
we came to the hotel, written from
"Did tbe last one go to Bar Harbor
too? How came yon to reoetoe.'it when
we did not get o!irs':"ii"'-
"It did not go to Bar Harbor. I gave
hlin tbe address of my lawyers In New
York, and tbey forwarded it to me
here. Lieutenant Drumniond was ordered home by some one who bad authority to do so and received (lie message while he was sitting with me ou
tlie night of the ball. He biid'got into
trouble with Itussia. There had hi en
nu investigation, and he wus acquitted.
I saw Hint he was rather worried over
the order home, and I expressed hit
sympathy as well as 1 could, hoping
everything would turn out for the host.
He asked If he might write and let
me know the outcome, and. being interested. I quite willingly gave hiiu,,,pcr-
