The Municipal Council gravelled a portion of Fairview Ave.
this week by gravel taken from
the dredge. We hope they will
not continue this work as it is
practically useless until the entire road allowence is plowed up
and properly graded. It would
be better to wait until the
money were available to make a
complete job of it. This applies
particularly to the portion of
fairview Road next the town.
The dredge operating on Okanagan River has got as far down
as the bridge. A channel forty
feet wide is being dredged to a
depth of four feet. The grade
in the bed of the river is being
made so gradual that the fall in
the stream will be distributed
almost evenly throughout the
bngth of the river between Okanagan and Lower Okanagan
Lakes. When this dredging
work is finished, it will be navigable for gasoline launches and
small steamboats. This will
prove of commercial advantage
to Okanagan Falls and Kaleden
as well as afford an excellent
route for excursion parties.
At the home of her son-in-law
and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. J. F.
Rowe, Mrs, Elizabeth Ferguson,

about a year ago to reside with
her daughter in Penticton.
A short funeral service was
held on Monday evening at the
home, the Rev. W. L. Bradley
speaking very effectingly, and
Miss Florence Thompson singing
a solo. The casket was then conveyed to the Str. Okanagan, and
in charge of Mr. Arthur Rowe, a
grandson of the deceased, was
shipped to Winnipeg for interment. Mr. J. B. Ferguson, a
son, will meet Mr. Rowe there,
and the body will be laid in St.
James' Cemetery, where Mr Ferguson owns a plot.
Besides Mrs. Rowe, of this
place, another daughter, Mrs. W.
W. Booth, resides in Syracuse, N.
Y. Mr. J. B. Ferguson, who is the
president of the Western Coal
and Coke Co., resides in St. Catherines, Ont., while another son,

funds for the financing of the
institution. In the meantime the
business element of the community is being canvassed for

Canadian Meat Inspection.
The Meat Inspection Service of
the Department of Agriculture
at Ottawa is carried on under the
authority of the Meat and Canned
Foods Act, a measure which received the royal assent at the
prorogation of parliament in
June, 1907, and came into operation on September 3rd, of that
Present-day sentiment in Europe and elsewhere, especially
since the recent revelations in
Chicago, is arrayed very strongly against the use, as human
food, of any meats save those
duly inspected and certified by
proper governmental authority.
It was in conformity with this
sentiment, and chiefly with tho
object of preserving our valuable
export trade in bacon and similar
products, that the Meat and
Canned Foods Act was passed.
With the view of clearing up
any misunderstanding whiclvmay
exist in the public mind as to
the exact nature of the legislation under which the present
Meat Inspection Service is conducted, the following explanation is given:���
Before the Meat and Canned
Foods Act was introduced in the
House of Commons by the Hon.
Sydney Fisher, the Minister of
Justice was asked for an opinion
as to the powers of the Federal
Government with reference to
meat inspection. His reply was
that while these powers undoubtedly warranted the Federal Government in undertaking the inspection of articles exported
from the Dominion or from one
Province to another, there was
very grave doubt as to whether
they would permit of a similar
inspection of articles, the trade
in which was confined within tho
boundaries of any one province.
This limitation was especially
applicable to meat inspection, a
subject intimately associated
with public health, one of the
matters which, since 1872, has
been dealt with altogether by
the provincial authorities.
Provision is made either by
the Municipal Act or by the Public Health Act of each province,
and in some cases 'by both for
the establishment and carrying
on of municipal meat inspection,

in the value of property  by  the j
close   proximity   of   a    burying-
ground.    Be all these as they j
may, it is the public  that is to
j blame, and it is now for the pub- j
I lie to arouse itself and see  thatj
' the question is settled  once  and ;
for all.
It is a public   disgrace   that i
; people object to a cemetery being
| located near their property,   and
i yet there has been  more objection registered to one in  Penticton than there would have  been
I to an abattoir or a public nuisance
ground.   Why is this?  We must,
every one of us, sooner or later,
take our places among the dwellings of the dead.    Most of us, in
fact, will go  there sooner than
! we are figuring' on.     It  may  be
| necessary  occasionally   to   keep
'an eye on  the  living,   but   the
I dead can harm none of us.   Some
I object to the presence of a ceme-
Itery on the ground that they do
not wish a constant reminder of
death near them,   but would  it
not be better for many of us  if
we were reminded a  little more
often   that    we    cannot    grow
peaches or do anything else  for
ever.    Any person afraid to die,
>r to think about death,  should
[ wipe off the slate and begin life
j over again.
A cemetery, instead  of being
an eyesore, should  be an  orna-j
I ment, and should be cherished as j

and that this legislation has, up
till now, been very ineffectively-
enforced, is no fault of the federal authorities.
Further, a little consideration
will, I, think, demonstrate the
utter impossibility of any federal
department undertaking the
supervision, in all its ramifications, of the local meat trade, in
every town and village throughout the Dominion.
On the other hand, under the
provincial laws above mentioned,
it is quite possible for municipalities to organize, at but little
cost, a thoroughly effective system of local meat inspection, the
machinery being, in many cases,
already provided, and the additional expenditure, therefore,
comparatively small.
The awakening of the public
conscience on the meat'inspection question might reasonably
be expected as a result of the
adoption, by the federal government, of a policy of inspection of
meats for export and interpro-
vincial trade, and the agitation
now making itself felt in many
of the larger centres of population throughout the country is
therefore not surprising.
I am satisfied that once the
Canadian public has become
seized of the situation they will
insist upon the adoption, by the
various municipal authorities
throughout the country, of a
much more thorough system of
dealing with butchers and the
meat trade generally than has
hjtberto been tolerated.
It does not appear to me that
there is any need for or likelihood of conflict. We are setting
a fairly high standard, and all
that is required is for the municipal authorities to adopt, under
the legislation now existing, regulations somewhat similar to
ours, with the view of rendering
unmarketable, diseased or otherwise unsound meats, which,
Under present conditions, cannot
jnter establishments engaged in
3Xport or interprovincial trade.
The first and most important
step in this direction will, it is
needless to say, be the providing
if public municipal abattoirs, to
')e conducted under inspection
methods similar to those required
by the Meat and Canned Foods
Act, especially as regards the
admission either of live animals
or their carcases.
The sooner the private slaughter house is abolished altogether,
the better for all concerned, as
most of the objectionable meats
placed on the market emanate
from these undesirable and unsanitary places.
The trade in home killed
dressed carcases will also, for
similar reasons, gradually be
viped out of existence, and although the abolition of this form
of meat disposal will probably
cause some temporary dissatisfaction among farmers, matters
wil! soon adjust themselves and
the profits to the producer will '
be in no way lessened, although
the livers and other offal hitherto utilized by the household will
be no longer available.
The municipal   abattoir  is   a
modern necessity and must come.

yet old, who can well recollect
when the number of hospitals in
Canada could almost be counted
on the fingers, and when a proposal to erect an institution of
this kind in a small town was
looked upon as indicating a mild
form of insanity. How many of
the communities now possessing
modern and up-to-date hospitals
would be satisfied to do without
them ?
The same will be found true of
the abattoir, and if no other
argument could be advanced in
favor of the Meat and Canned
Foods Act than that it has a-
roused and is arousing public
opinion on the great and important question of a sanitary meat
supply, this would, in my opinion,
fully justify its being placed on
the statute books.
The following establishments,
which are engaged in export or
interprovincial trade, are operated under the provisions of the
Meat and Canned Foods Act,
and all meats and meat food
products from such establishments have undergone a careful
and thorough inspection at the

The inspection conducted in
each of these establishments is
as follows:���
All animals for slaughter are
examined by a vertinary inspector on the premises before they
are allowed to enter the killing
floor. All animals found to be
deseased, or showing suspicious
symptons of any kind, are tagged and held back until the end
of the days kill, when they are
slaughtered separately.
The inspector makes a thorough
examination of the carcass and
of all organs of every animal
as it is killed. If these are found
healthy, they are stamped with
inspection legend, the crown and
the words "Canada Approved",
as also the establishment number.
Any meats found, in whole or

The Brown Brothers Company
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 and 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 firm, 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 give the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successf ully, 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 Coast stock, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply 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 to represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, and will make liberal terms to the right party, for all, or a part of his time.
Write for terms, prices, etc., to
