An Incandescent Kerosene Mantle Lamp
We have just received the new 1909 "Aladdin," the latest, in lamps.
It is an incandescent kerosene mantle lamp, burning coal oil and producing at the cheapest cost the most brilliant uniform light and is an ideal
illuminant for stores, offices and homes. To say we are pleased with
this beautiful lamp is to express our satisfaction very mildly. The lamp
which is of simple construction, differs little from an ordinary coal oil
lamp but the result of the mantle and generator which turns the coal oil
into a gas throwing a light of twenty-fold power at a minimum cost is a
great stride towards perfection combined with economy.
Made in Table, Store, Hanging, and Bracket Lamp styles.

opportunity, at a small outlay,
to read the standard works.
The Ross map, a new publication for which orders were
solicited and taken some months
ago, was distributed this week
to about thirty disgusted subscribers in Keremeos. It is poorly designed, utterly illegible in
parts, and altogether about the
worst specimen of map-making
that could be found. A really
good map of .the province would
find a ready sale.���Keremeos

Lady Balfour Visits Penticton.
Lady Balfour of Burleigh, who
spent last Sunday here as the
guest of Mr. and Mrs. Guernsey,
was greatly impressed with Penticton and said that it was the
most charming spot she had seen
in Canada. Lady Balfour left
on Monday's boat for Victoria,
where she will spend a day or so
before rejoining Lord Balfour at
Montreal, where he has been sitting on the Royal Commission on
trade relations between Canada
and the West Indies.
(From Oroviile Weekly Gazette.)
Division Superintendent R. C.
| Morgan came in Tuesday evening
! in his private car, and A.Guthrie.
[the successful bidder for the contract of building the Oroville-
; Brewster branch, was his guest.
Mr. Guthrie expected to meet
Engineer A. F. Whitcomb at this
point, but that gentleman was
delayed at Spokane, and did not
get in until Wednesday evening.
Wednesday, Superintendent Morgan, accompanied by Mr. Guthrie, continued on to Keremeos,
where Mr. Guthrie met and conferred with Chief Engineer
Hogeland. They returned Wednesday evening, and according
to program a party consisting of
Messrs. Guthrie, Whitcomb and
others left here Thursday morning in vehicles to drive south over
the line of the proposed new
The reporter found Mr. Guthrie a courteous, approachable and
communicative gentleman. He
is a man of ripe age, bearing his
years with ease, with a geniality
of manner that makes it a
pleasure to meet him. He is one
of the oldest and largest contractors in the west, and has
done much and heavy construction work on the Great Northern
system in past years. He conversed freely upon the subject of
the prospective railroad construction. He stated that crews would
work from both ends, and progress made as speedily as possible. Locations for camps would
be selected on his trip down the
valley, and he expected grading
would commence in a very short
time. He stated that outfits were
now on their way in from both
Minnesota and North Dakota,
due to arrive almost any day.
He inquired especially regarding
the winters, and expressed the
belief that work could be continued uninteruptedly throughout
the winter. His presence here
was for the purpose of familiarizing himself with the country
and conditions, and he was rather
pleased than otherwise that his
plans for meeting Mr. Whitcomb
had gone awry, as it gave him
an opportunity to make the run
to the front. The actual work
of construction will be done by
sub-contractors and Mr. Guthrie
will spend little of his time in
the county.
During the week Messrs. Whitcomb and Andrews, the engineers who with their assistants
will have supervision of the work
of construction, with headquarters in Oroviile, secured the residence in the west part of town
formerly occupied by Dr. Webb
to be used as an office.
The Herald states that material
for the use of the contractors is
already arriving at Brewster by
boat from Wenatchee.
The activity that is being manifested in the engineer department and among contractors is
evidence sufficient to indicate
that the long anticipated building
of the branch is to commence.
Construction of the line is no
longer shrouded in mystery. It
can be truly said it is a thing of
the present.
The Standard's Souvenir Number
The Montreal Standard's Special Number has come to hand,
and is a most creditable production. It has a magnificent cover
in colors, painted by one of
America's best known artists.
The Number contains nearly 150
half-tone plates devoted to subjects of general interest, and has
two superb panoramic views of
Montreal suitable for framing.
The printing is first class, and
we understand that many thousands of the issue have been sent
to friends abroad.
Wilfrid Small's Recital.
Master Wilfrid Small is an ait-
ist. Such was the unanimous
verdict of those who heard him
at the violin recital given on
Friday evening of last week.
For an hour and a half the audience were held as by a spell.
This applied not merely to the
musically gifted but to all present. Tne average individual
does not as a rule appreciate
classical music, but this is not
the case when Master Small
plays. He loses himself in his
playing, and the most difficult
pieces are interpreted as if he
had caught the very spirit and
impulses that prompted the authors when they first gave them
Mr. Percy S. Hook, pianist,
who played the accompaniments,
is a musician of no mean ability,
and he contributed very materially to the evening's entertainment.
The recital, which was given
under the auspices of the Penticton Public Reading Room and
Library, had only been advertised for about a week; but should
Master Small and Mr. Hook again
appear before a Penticton audience, they will doubtles be greeted by a full house.
Railway Rumbles.
(From Similkameen Star.)
The survey party under C. F.
Russell which went up to Dan
McKay's place last week are revising the V., V. & E. from that
point toward Princeton. This is
not taken to indicate abandonment of the tunnel route. It
may mean anything in the range
of a million probabilities which
Uncle Jim is not telling to everyone just now. What the public
want is quick construction of the
railway to the coast. It matters
not to them whether the road
goes through Mac's backyard,
the tunnel, the air, or down
some old turnpike. The road is
wanted quickly and badly. If it
is not forthcoming the people
must know why.
The tracklayers are expected
to arrive at Princeton in about a
week and are now about a mile
west of Bromley's. It is about
12 miles from here to Bromley's.
Work on the spur to the V. F.
M. Co's coal tipple is being
pushed with all speed so that the
arrival of the locomotive will find
splendid steaming coal in the
bunkers ready for its use.
There is no indication of an
advance being made in construction beyond Princeton. The
grading will be all done in about
three weeks.
The first week in December is
said to be the time set for regular trains to arrive in Princeton
and the beginning of a new order
of mail, express, passenger and
freight service.
Stringing the telegraph wire,
building fences, freight sheds
and stations are all now in progress and the long looked for
and sighed for railway will soon
be a reality and a blessing forever if a square deal is given on

The Mail Order House.
Notwithstanding the scarcity
j of money, there is still a large
I mail order business being done
in this vicinity. Thousands of
dollars are leaving the place
never to return. Merchant and
citizen alike agree that the practice is ruinous, but, as to the
reason for its existence, there is
a wide disagreement.
The merchant believes that the
person who sends his money to a
mail order house is, to say the
least, unpatriotic. On the other
hand, the buyer maintains that,
much as he dislikes to send his
money away, he cannot pay the
prices asked by the local merchant and support his family.
He says that he does not object
to paying a somewhat higher
figure than he would to the mail
order stores, but, as he usually
terms it, he is "not going to be
held up."
We are not going to make any
comment upon the subject, but
merely state the two viewpoints
in the hope that it may afford
foad for careful reflection. If this
m >ney could possibly be retained
ii town, it seems a pity to let it
g\ as the amount being sent out,
W3 are informed, is equal to a
g od cash business.

the most successful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The growing of the stock, as well as every othe** detail in connection with the work, is

We have made lur^e shipments of trees into the Okanagan Valley apd can give the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have plant* "i 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 tree* are conse |uently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than art tbe Coast stock, being more hartfy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of libruus roots, which count tfyr much in making in 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 treeB, true to name.

Telephones and Fires.
The earliest implication of the telephone in oOmiectlon with a switchboard was made at Bridgeport. Conn.,
in .limp. 1878. where in the eagerness
of various tire companies to arrive tlrst
at fires, the men of company No. 5.
which was next t:> the telephone otlieo,
told the telephone operator to request
his twenty-one patrons to give the lu-
forniutloi) over tlie telephone of any
five and to report the fact at the engine house. This engine was uot only
the first at several fires, but iu some
mysterious manner was frequently on
its way before the alarm struck.
This reached a climax on the occasion of a small lire in a dwelling, which
the lire company attended with muffled bell, in response to a telephone
message, and no fire alarm was [lulled.
On their return, the engine was driven
by the house of a rival company wilh
bell ringing, and when the meu rushed
out with inquiries they were told that
the lire- bad been extinguished.
After this occurrence, the chief of
the (ire department gave orders that
companies should not respond to a fire
alarm received over a telephone, but
the insurance agents of the city appealed to the city council, who ordered
that all tire engine houses should be
equipped with telephones.��� Brooklyn

THE t>;issing of Joseph from
Canaan was complete. It was
an evauishment for which there
was neither sackcloth nor surprise, and. though there came no news
of him. it eanuol be said that Canaan
did uoi bear of him. for surely it'
could hear itself talk. Tbe denth of
Jouas Tabor and young Louden's crime
and flight incited high doings in the
National House windows. Many days
tbe sages lingered with tbe broken
meats of morsels left over Irom the
banquet of gossip. I
Very little of Joseph's adventures
and occupations during the time of his
wandering is revealed lo us; lie always
had nn unwilling memory for pain and
���was not afterward wont to speak of
those years which cut the hard lines
lu his face. The lirst account of him
to reach Canaan came as directly to
the windows of the Notional House as
Mr. Arp, hastening thithci' from the
station, satchel in hand, could bring it.
This was on n September morning
two years lifter the !!i;cht. and Eskew.
It appears, had been to ihe state fair
and had beheld many thiugs strangely
affirming Ids constant testimony that
this unhappy world Inereasetb in siu:
strangest of all. bis meeliug with our
vagrant scalawag of Canaan. "Not n
biame bit of doubt about ii." declared
Eskew to the Incredulous conclave.
"There was tbat Joe, and nobody else,

at the fair grounds aud sellin' tickets
"There wus tluit Joe, nnd nobody else,
stuck tip in a little box outside a tent."
to see tbe Spotted Wild Boy!" Yes, it
was Joe Louden! Think you Mr. Arp
could forget that face, those crooked
eyebrows'/ Had Eskew tested the ree
ognition'/ Had he spoken with the
outcast? Had he uot! Aye. but with
such peculiar result that the battle ol
words among the sages began with a
true onset of the regulars, for. accord
ing tP Eskew's narrative, wheu he bad
delivered grimly at the boy this charge.
"1 know you���you're Joe Louden!" the
extraordinary reply had_ been made
promptly and without change of coun
ten dice. "Positively no free seats!"
"What's the matter with you?" Mr
Arp whirled upon tlncle Joe Davey,
who was enjoying himself by repeating
at Intervals the unreasonable words,
"Couldn't of be'n Joe," without any
explanation. "Why couldn't It?" shouted Eskew. "It was! Do you think my
eyes are as fur g ine as yours? I saw
him. I tell you. What's more, that boy
Joe Ml turn up here again some day.
You'll see if he don't. He's a seed of
trouble and Iniquity, and anything of
that kind is sure to come back to Canaan!"
Mr. Arp stuck to his prediction for
several months, Then he began to
waver and evade. By the end of the
second year following its first utterance lie had formed the habit of denying that In' bad ever made It at all and,
finally having come to believe With all
his heart that the prophecy had been
deliberately foisted upon him and put
in his mouth by Scpiiie Buekalew, became so sore upon the subject that
even the hardiest dared not refer to it
in h:s presence.
Bnkew's story of the ticket seller win
the only news of Joe Louden that came
to Canaan during seven years. Another citizen of the town encountered the
wan erer. however, but uuder circumstances so su a-cpiib'e to misconception
thnt in a moment of i biniination he decided to I d the ma tier rest in a golden
silence. Tills was Mr. Bantry, and the
cause of his silence was tlie fact that
bis meeting with Joe occurred in the
"Straw Cellar!," a tough New York resort, in wh . h neither of them should
have been.
EUOKN'R did Uot Inform Canaan
or any inhabitant of his adventure of the "Straw Cellar,"
nor did any bear of his meeting
with his stepbrother, and after Mr.
Arp's adventure live years passed into
the Imperishable before the towu heard
of  tlie   wanderer again,  and  then  It
neard at tirst hand. Mr. Arp's prophecy fell true, and he took it hack to h's
bosom again, claimed it as his own the
morning of its fulfillment Joe Louden
bad come back to Canaan.
The elder Louden was the lirst tr>
know of1 his prodigal's return. lie was
alone in the oliice of the wooden butter dish factory, of which he was tho
superintendent, when the young man
came lu unannounced. He was still
pale and thin. His eyebrows had tlie
same crook, one corner of his mouth
tbe snme droop. He was ouly an inch
or so taller, not enough to be thought
a tall man. and yet for a few moments
the father did not recognize his son.
but stared at him. inquiring his business. During those few seconds of un-
recognition Mr. Louden was somewhat
favorably Impressed with the strau-
ger's appearance.
"You don't know me," said Joe. smiling cheerfully. "Perhaps I've changed
in seveu years." And he held out bis
Then Mr. Louden knew. He tilted
back In his desk chair, his mouth falling open. "Good Cod!" he said, not
noticing the outstretched hand. "Have
you come back?"
Joe's hand fell.
"Yes. I've come back to Canaan."
Mr. Ix>uden plainly received this as
no pleasant surprise. "What for?" be
nsked slowly.
"To practice law, father."
"Y'es." said the young man. "There
ought to be an opening bere for me.
I'm a graduate of as good a law school
as there Is in the country."
Mr. Louden leaned forward, a hand
on each knee, his brow deeply corrugated.
"Who do you think In Canaan would
put a case in your hands?"
"Oh, I dou't expect to get anything
important at the start but after
"With your reputation?"
"But that's seven years ago, and I
suppose the town's forgotten all about
it and forgotten me too. So. you see. I
can make a fresh start That's what
I came back for."
"1 don't believe." said Mr. Louden,
with marked uneasiness, "that Mrs.
Louden would be willing to let you
live wilh us."
"No," said Joe gently. "1 didn't expect It. Well, I won't keep you from
your work. 1 suppose you're pretty
"Yes, I am." responded his father
promptly. "But I'll sec you again be-
lore you go. 1 want to give you some
"I'm not going." stud Joe. "Not go-

will I Bud Eugene?"
"At the Tocsin ofBce: he's the assistant editor. Judge Pike bought the
Tocsin last year, and he thinks a good
deal of EUgenc. Don't forget I said
to come to see me a^aiu before you
Joe came over to the older man and
held out his hand. "Shake hands, father,' he said. Mr. Louden looked at
him out of small Implacable eyes, the
steady hostility of which ouly his wife
or the imperious Martin I'ike, his cm
ployer, could quell. He shook his
"I don't see any use in It" he answered! "It wouldu't mean anything.
All my'life I've been a hard working
man and an abiding man. Before you
got lu trouble you never did anything
you ought to. You ran with the low
est people lu town, and 1 and all your
folks were ashamed of you. I don't
see that we've got a call lo he any
different uow." He swung round to
his desk emphatically oil the last
word, and Joe turned awny and went
out quietly.
But It was a bright morning to
which he emerged from the outer doors
of the factory, and he made his way
toward Main street lit a lively gttit
As he turned the corner opposite the
National House he walked into Mr

"Lord n' mercy!" cried Joe heartily

you kuow me. Mr. Arp?" the young
man asked.    "I'm Joe Louden."
Eskew abruptly thrust his face close
to tbe other's. "No free seats!" he
hissed savagely and swept across to
the hotel to set his world afire.
Joe looked alter the Irate receding
figure and watched It disappear into
the Main street door of tlie National
House. As tbe door closed he became
awure of a mighty shadow upon tbe
pavement and. turning, beheld a fat
young man wearing upon his forehead
u scar similar to ids own waddling by.
with eyes llxed upon him.
"How are you. Norbert?" Joe began.
"Don't yon remember me? I"- He
came to a full stop as the fat one.

to the Tocsin building. At tlie foot of
the stairway leading up to the ollices

he turned away and walked toward

a corner, looked up carelessly and then
half stopped within a few feet of him
as if startled. Joe's cheeks went a
sudden crimson, for it was the lady of
his old dreams.
As she came to her half stop of sur
prise, startled, he took his courage in
two hands and. lifting his bat, stepped
I to her side.
"You���you remember me?" he stammered.
"Yes." she answered, a little breath
"Ah. that's kind of you!" he cried
and began to walk on with lier union

"Be sure to shut the door, please. It's

Eugene waved his hand and sank bnck
upon the divan.
Joe went across the street to fhe National House. The sages fell as silent
as If he had been Martin Pike. Joe
had begun to write his name in the
register. "My trunk is still at the
station." he said. "I'll give you my
check to send down for It."
"Excuse me," said the clerk. "We
have no rooms."
