f Contributed)
Last Friday evening will lonp.
bs remembered as a red or peril ips Orange letter date by the
local members of the Loyal Orange Association of British North
America, being the occasion of
the establishment of a lodge of
the Order in Penticton. The
Provincial Grand Organizer, after
spending a few days in town,
called a public meeting of citizens
and, with other prominent members of the Order, addressed
them upon the aims and objects
of the large and world-renowned
Association of Orangemen. The
spacious hall of the Woodmen of
the World was well filled by in-
1 terested citizens, and promptly
at 8 o'clock the chair was taken
by Past Master W. W. Rogers,
who in a brief address introduced
J the distinguished visitors of the
I Order to the assembled people.
Among the number of prominent
members of the Society who occupied seats upon the platform
; were Rev. Grand Chaplain Mclntyre of the Provincial Grand
Lodge of B. C; Mr. Garvin Taylor, Provincial Deputy Grand
Master: Mr. J. W. Whiteley,
Provincial Grand Organizer; Mr.
���J. Watson, Past Grand Master
of the Manitoba Grand Lodge,
and Provincial Past Grand Officers Rev. Jas. Lang, James Mel-
drum, Robert Michael, L. D. McColl and others.
The Rev. Mr. Lang, who was
the first to speak, gave a brief,
but interesting and humorous,
description of those good old
' days (or what some might think
j bad old days) of the Order in
Carleton county some fifty-seven
years ago when he was one of
the active boys of the lodge.
' The Ottawa and Carleton county
of to-day are not the same as the
Bytown and Carleton Co. of that
day so long ago. Neither, he was
pleased to say, was the Society
just the same as at that time.
Time had wrought its changes in
each���changes for the best. And
yet, he ventured to say, that the
law - abiding, empire - building.
God-fearing principles of the
Order, which had not changed
from those early days, had contributed much (more perhaps
than we credit) to make the
grand and glorious Dominion in
i which we live to-day. He wished
' God-speed to the lodge about to
be organized that evening.
Mr. Garvin Taylor, Provincial
Deputy Grand Master, would not
take up the time which he preferred to give to the Grand Organizer and Chaplain who were
billed to address them that evening. As one of the officers of
Grand Lodge he could only express the satisfaction of the
Grand Lodge in seeing the large
number of new lodges being organized in the jurisdiction and
felt confident from what he knew
of the Orangemen of the Okanagan that Penticton Lodge would
prove to be an important unit to
that number.
W. Bro. Watson, Past Grand
Master of Manitoba, expressed
his pleasure at being present on
the occasion. He had been thirty
years a member of the great Orange order, and had never had
any reason to change the good
opinion of the Society he had
formed when he joined. It was
to the great and growing West
Orangemen must look to plant
their ever-increasing membership.
Mr. J. W. Whiteley was the
next speaker,and in a half-hour's
eloquent address set forth the
aims of the Orange Order in a
very lucid manner. He held that
the guarding influence of the As
sociation was as necessary to-day
for the preservation of the liberties of the people as it ever had
been. The Orange Order had no
objection to any man's religion
or how any man chose to worship
his Maker. The Church of Rome,
or any other Church, was welcome to its prescribed form of
worship, but neither the Church
of Rome nor any other Church
must interfere with man's civil
or religious liberty. The Orange
Order was not a political party-
organization. It asked no man
to be Whig or Tory. It simply
asked its members to put principle before party and to be loyal
to British institutions. The principles of the Orange Association
appealed to all true Britishers.
At this particular time when our
country is being rapidly filled
with foreign immigrants it behoved this great loyal institution
to see that British principles
were largely diffused and the
leaven of loyalty made to permeate the whole.
Mr. Whiteley was followed by
the Rev. Grand Chaplain Mclntyre, who is a resident of Summerland in the Okanagan and
needed no introduction to a Penticton audience. He concluded
the speaking of the evening by
a ringing declamation of the
principles of the glorious Orange
Order and the necessity of its
existence, more particularly in
this our great Dominion of Can-
a la, which unfortunately opened
its doors to the Jesuit or any
other exile that might choose to
make it his home. We had lots
of room for all but we must see
to it as Britishers that the laws
of the country be obeyed and
British principles maintained.
After the public meeting had
closed Penticton Lodge was
formed, and a large number of
members initiated. The officers

Messrs. Delong, Houser. McKenzie, Galarneau, Pomeroy an<

The money collected will be
apportioned as follows: two-fifths
ii the amount for the races, two-
fifths for the aquatic sports am.
one-fifth for the athletic sports.
There will be no money prize.1
this year, with the exception ol
those for the horse races, it having been decided to run the other
sports purely upon amateur lines.
The committee on finance are
to make a canvass for funds and
report at a full meeting of the
Executive on the 10th of June,
at which meeting complete and
final arrangements will be made.
Excursion rates will be applied
for from the C. P. R. so that as
many as possible from up-lake
points may attend. If unity and
harmony continue to prevail, and
we have no doubt but that they
will, this year's sports should be
the most successful yet on record.
July First a Big Day in Penticton!
The large number who turned
out to the meeting of the Athletic
Association last Tuesday evening,
and the enthusiasm displayed
thereat, augur well for the success of the First of July celebration.
The first question which came
up related to the character of the
sports. There had been consid- j
erable dissatisfaction expressed
relative to the horse races both
last year and the year before,
and many were of the opinion
that they were merely a waste
of the funds of the Association.
However, those in favor of races;
this season appeared solid, so the
opposing party did not press
their views, and a show of hands
decided that races should be
held. A committee comprising
Messrs. Huycke, Weeks and Lister was then appointed to secure
suitable grounds for a race
course. The next procedure was
the appointment of four committees, one for the management of
the races, one for the aquatic
sports, one for athletics and one
to finance the affair. The committee on races comprises Messrs.
Partridge Lister, Welby, Mason
and Dignan; that on aquatic
sports, Messrs. Leir. Rowe,
Munro, Swinton and Thomas;
and   that   on   athletic   sports, |
It Pays to Raise Good Fruit.
In reading the above headline,
please put the accent on the
word "good." Perhaps there
has never been a season when
the difference between good fruit
and that of poor or ordinary
quality has been as market! as
the season of 1906. This refers
particularly to conditions in the
Middle West, and to the peach
and apple crops. In this section
the peach crop was larger than
it had ever been, perhaps, and
prices had a wide range. We
saw peaches selling at 40 cents a
bushel, and others at $1.50 a
bushel at the same time. What
was the difference? Simply in
the quality of the fruit. And by
"quality" we do not mean that
quality which is distinguished uy
the taste. We mean simply the
appearance of the fruit.
The difference was in the size
and color of the fruit. The cheap
fruit was borne on neglected
trees carrying about three crops.
The choice fruit was produced
on well-pruned trees, thinned to
a normal crop. And we suspect
that the latter trees bore as great
a quantity of fruit by measure,
as did the overloaded trees.
Customers were justified in
paying the high prices for the
choice fruit, rather than the low
prices for the inferior stuff, simply for the reason that there was
less waste. The seeds in the
smaller peaches were as large as
those in the larger ones���consequently there was a greater per
centage of waste. And the flavor
was better, too. Have you not
noticed how a peach loses flavor
as the tree is overloaded? It
seems as though the tree has not
enough sweetness to go around,
and it is divided among the
greater number of fruits.
The color, ion, on an overloaded tree is not what it should be,
and the fruit ripens unevenly on
an overloaded tree. All these
things tend to lower the quality.
Persons who had the choice
peaches made money on the fru t
this year but the other kind 01
fruit was .unprofitable. Fruit

Our Day o. Sport
Good working committees have
been appointed to have charge
of the various departments of
sport for the First of July, ant!
indications are that the celebration will be an exceptionally good
one. This year greater attention will be paitl to the watei
sports sailing, rowing, swimming, diving, etc.��� than last
year, and a greater proportion oi
the funds will be devoted to that
en I. Aquatic contests are this
year to be placed on an equal
footing with the horse races as-
regards the outlay for prizes.
This is decidedly encouraging as-
it is an indication that the public are awakening to the rare
a Wantages enjoyed by Pentictor
as a place for the holding of
e [uatic sports.
We look forward to the time
when the annual celebration al
Penticton will be considered
the leading annual event anions
all the Lake towns, and, if this
be the case, the public of Penticton must look to the water, at
most of the other towns possess
advantages equal to Pentictor
for all land sports. The one
thing which this point possesses,
and others do not, is a long line
of sandy beach open to the public and it is up to our citizens to
make the best use of the advan-
Again, Penticton is to be a
residential town. The lake is
one of the principal attractions to
settlers; so the emphacizing of
that attraction in our celebration
will do much to draw the place
to people's attention.
That no money prizes will be
given this year, except for horse
races, is an important innovation.
The contests will, thus be purely
amateur, and this should do
much towards encouraging the
highest class of sports along
athletic and aquatic lines.

(To bo continued,) THE PENTICTON PRESS. PENTICTON, R. C. MAY 30, 1908.
By a coincidence of dates this
year the 24th of May came on
Sunday, but Monday, the 25th,
was the day set apart for the
celebration of the birthday of
Victoria. Summerland, in keeping with her annual custom,
made this day hers. A full day's
program was arranged and the
sports began at an early hour.
Numbers arrived from Penticton
on the "Okanagan" in the morning. The forenoon was spent in
water sports, swimming contests,
canoe races, etc., but owing to
the lack of wind the sailing races
had to be dispensed with, though
numerous white winged crafts
stood idly on the bay waiting for
a breeze. On the arrival at Crescent Beach of the Str. Aberdeen,
which had been chartered for the
occasion, the crowds were conveyed to the new centre of attraction by means of the three
launches and a barge fitted un
with seats, all of which made
hourly trips between Crescent
Beach and Summerland wharf
during the afternoon. The baseball match between Penticton
and Summerland teams was the
chief event of the afternoon, although counter attractions had
their charms for some. The game
began at one o'clock sharp and a
very formidable looking nine did
those Penticton fellows appear.
In the first inning Penticton got
a run. This was of course very
encouraging to Kelly, Pentic-
ton's star pitcher, and he chewed
his gum with intense satisfaction. As the play proceeded two
things became evident: first that
Summerland pitcher and catcher
thoroughly understood one another, and secondly that Penticton should have used their new
man a little more to avoid having
him appear as a " gala - day
special." At about the seventh
inning our boys had entirely
shut out their opponents, and
when the latter learned that the
extent of their runs was four,
Kelly of Penticton chewed his
gum hard and with aching jaws,
while our pitcher, Steenson, only
smiled and kept on pounding the
balls into Blewett's mit in a manner that made Penticton sigh.
By this time the spectators began
to lose interest in the game.
Some forsook it in favor of the
horse races; others got dry and
' patronized Arnott & Steenson's
booth; several from Penticton
amused themselves by railing at
the umpire, but a few sports of
a more rare kind stayed by the
field and saw it out to the finish.
At the close of the game the
S2ore stood 4 to 24 in favor of
the boys in blue and grey, yet
each team was able to indulge in
a hearty cheer for the other. K.
Hogg acted as umpire of the
game to the satisfaction of the
players. The close of the day's
sport was accompanied by a
slight shower of rain which hampered but little the carrying out
of the running and jumping con-
tasts. Withal the day may be
put down as a successful event.

then pa took me out in the woodshed and he licked me awful
hard. If the editor makes mistakes, folks say he ought to be
��� hung, but if a doctor makes mistakes he buries them and people
dassent say nothing because doctors can read or. write Latin.
When the editors make mistakes
there is lawsuits, and swearing
and- a great fus; but if a doctor
makes one there is a funeral,
cut flowers, and perfect silence.
A doctor can use a word a yard
long without him or anyone
1 knowing what it means; but if
the editor uses one he has to
spell it. When the doctor gets
drunk it's a case of being overcome with the heat, and if he
dies it's a case of heart trouble.
When an editor gets drunk it's a
case of too much boose, and if
he dies it's the jim-jams. Any
college can make a doctor but an
editor has to be born.

A Boy's Cssav on Editors
The following composition was
prepared by a school boy who
had been instructed by his teacher to write an essay on editors:
"I don't know how the newspapers come to be in the world,
and I don't think God does, for
he's got nothing to say about
them in the bible. I think the
editor is one of the missing links
we read about and stayed in the
bushes until after the flood and
then came out and wrote the
thing up and has been here ever
since. I don't think he ever died.
I never saw a dead one and never heard of one getting licked.
Our paper is a mighty good one;
but the editor goes without underclothes all winter and don't
wear any socks and pa ain't paid
his-subscription since the paper
started. I asked pa if that was
why the editor had to suck the
juse out of snowballs in winter
and go to bed when he had a
shirt washed in summer.    About
