Mr. Cash, of Hood River, also
speaks
The Provincial Farmers' Institute met on Monday, as announced, in the Hotel Penticton
hall, with the exception that the
morning and afternoon sessions
were cut out. The speakers, W.
F. Kydd and Miss Blanche Mad-
dock, accompanied by Jas. Wilks,
the secretary of the Kelowna
branch of the Farmers' Institute,
driving in from Summerland
Monday morning, did not arrive
until nearly noon, consequently
too late to hold a morning session.
After some consultation it was
thought that there would be few,
if any, attendants at an afternoon session so it was decided to
concentrate their efforts upon
the evening session and to employ the intervening time seeing
the sights. W. T. Shatford, the
manager of the S. 0. Land Co.,
drove the party over the surrounding country, visiting Dog
Lake and the principal points on
the flat and the bench.
W.  J.  Clement occupied  the
chair at the evening  meeting,
and Mr. Kydd was greeted by a
very fair audience.   He said that
he had been simply staggered at
the opearance of the orchards in
this vicinity,    fie had been all
over Ontario and in many other
places, but had never seen orchards looking better or better
looked after, if as well, in any
other place.   It was consequently useless to lecture upon cultivation, spraying or pruning to
the owners of the best kept of
the orchards.   He would, therefore, talk on other matters, taking  as  his    subject,   " Strawberries, Grapes, and the Horse."
He had noticed while driving in
the vicinity that many of the
fruit lots were held by wealthy
men who did not live here, while
men of less means had taken up
their residence and were endeavoring to make a living from the
land.   The latter were the men
who  were doing good for the
place and were the men wanted
for its development.    To these
men the question would arise as
to what they were goirig to live
on for the first few years.     His
answer would be, "Grow Strawberries."   He had known places
at the coast where from $1,000
to $1,200 worth of strawberries
had been taken from a single
acre in a season.   In the Okanagan the supply of water could be
regulated and a crop  ensured,
besides a crop could be got from
the land a year after planting.
Regarding the best varieties to
plant he could make no recommendations as  districts  differ.
However,   some  varieties   bore
very imperfect blossoms but were
the  best  fruiters when grown
along with plants bearing perfect   blossoms,   the  process  of
fertilization being thus assisted.
In   setting  out   strawberries
some used a plow furrow, others
a marker,  but Mr.   Kydd preferred using a line to plant by,
as he wanted his rows straight.
A spade could be used for making the   holes  and  the  plants
should not be set in with the
crown below the surface of the
earth as they were likely to de-
cay, nor too far above the surface
as the roots would dry out. They
should be kept even with the
surface.     After   planting,   the
land should be thoroughly lev-!
elled with a hand rake and there-
after kept clear of weeds.    It
was better to keep the weeds'
from  starting  than to remove
them after they had got a start.
Two  methods  of   cultivation
were described, the hill system
and the matted row system. In
the former the plants were put
about eighteen inches apart in
the rows, kept thoroughly cultivated, the runners kept cut off,
and the plants induced to grow
like bushes. The latter plan was
to grow in continuous rows and
to keep well cultivated between.
He preferred the hill system as
it was easier to keep the patch
clean. He believed spring planting was just as good as fall, as
no fruit should be allowed to
grow upon the plants the first
year, and those planted in the
spring would be foCind as far advanced by the following spring
as those planted the fall previous.
In his own patch he did not let
his plants bear move than one
year, but in certain cases two
good crops might be obtained.
When strawberries were planted
between the rows of fruit trees,
they should be kept away from
the trees.
GRAPES
Mr. Kydd next took up the
subject of grape culture. On
the American side of the line
growers thought they were doing
well if they received two cents a
pound for their grapes. In this
country- when he had bought
grapes he had paid 15c. a pound
for them. The Okanagan should
prove an ideal place for the
growing of this fruit. People
sometimes said that it was too
much trouble to grow grapes,
but they would find that there
was trouble in growing any kind
of fruit. Grapes could hang on
the vines a considerable time
after ripe. Consequently there
was more time in which to pick
the fruit, a very important consideration where labor was
scarce.
In planting out grape vines,
holes should be dug large enough
to take in all the spreading roots
without compressing them. Only
three buds should be left above
the ground and when these have
started all but the strongest
should be removed. The speaker
explained and illustrated the
best kind of trellises to use and
how the vines should be trained.
Fruit is always borne on last
year's wood, and new branches
should be trained from the main
stem each season. The vines
should be planted twelve feet
apart in the row and the rows
should also be the same distance
apart.
Among black grapes, Mr.
Kydd recommended the Warden,
Moore's Early, Campbell's Early,
and the Concord, if it could be
grown. Being questioned about
Black Hamburgs, he said to
grow them if possible, but not
to say that he had recommended
them. The Niagara was a good
white grape, while among the
red that should do well were the
Moyer, Deleware, Salem and
Linden.
Grapes should be pruned at the
coldest season of the year, when
the sap had stopped. Rich land
would produce a finer quality of
grapes than sandy. Grapes
could be grown upon much
rougher land than any other
fruit. Cultivation should cease
in time to permit the wood to
ripen before frost.
MR. CASH SPEAKS
Mr. Kydd then gave place to
Mr. Cash, of Hood River, Oregon. The latter had j ust arrived
from Oregon to join the party of
lecturers, and consented upon
request to give a short address.
He confined his remarks chiefly
to the packing and marketing of
fruit, but also touched upon a
number of other interesting
items. He explained how strawberries were planted and cared
for in Hood River, saying that
four and even five or six crops
were grown upon plants without
replacing.   Most growers there
planted their strawberries in
rows thirty inches apart and
sixteen inches apart in the rows.
In starting an orchard it was
as necessary to make

church next Sunday evening at
7 p. m. Special music by the
choir will be a leading feature of
the service. A cordial invitation
is extended to every one to be
present.
' Chas. Hind, the man committed for trial for shooting Nglson
Chance at Keremeos last week,
escaped on Monday night at Shu-
swap while being conducted to
jail at Kamloops by Const. Gard-
ham of Enderby. He has not
yet been recaptured.
F. D. Blakely, publisher of
"Canadian Farm Implements," a
trade paper published at Winnipeg, called at the Press office
this week. This is Mr. Blakely's
first trip to the Okanagan, and,
like every one else, he is delighted with the climate, orchards,
people and everything in general
he has met with in the valley.
Rev. A. N. Miller of Enderby,
chairman of this district of the
Methodist Conference, accompanied by Rev. Dr. White, Supt. of
Methodist missions for B. C,
paid an official visit to Hedley,
Keremeos, and Penticton this
week. They drove to Hedley
from Summerland last week, re-
farm. He did not know
thing about nurserymen in British Columbia but in the United
States they were very dishonest
and a person could never be cer-
tain about the variety of his trees j
until they began to bear. The !
speaker's advice was for the
grower to raise his onw trees.
He could procure the seedling-
stock from any wholesale nursery and by selecting grafts
from good bearing trees do his
own grafting. The process of
budding or grafting could be
learned in a few minutes. Grafts
should be cut in the fall, and the
young trees grafted and set out
in the following spring. When
young trees are set out they
should be headed to within eighteen inches of the ground. The
trees would then be low and most
of the fruit could be picked from
the ground by women and
children.
Every care should be exercised
in picking and packing fruit so
that it might not be bruised in
the slightest degree. Where
possible the packing should be
done in the orchards as conveying the fruit to a central packing
house was likely to bruise it and
brown spots would soon show.
Apples should be carefully wiped
and sorted. This cost about six
cents per box at Hood River.
Thirteen different grades were
made.
At Hood River a union, with a
well paid business man as manager, had been formed, and this
union contracted with the growers. The growers had nothing
to do with the grading or packing of the apples and buyers in
the east dealt exclusively with
the manager. In this way it was
certain that the fruit sent out
would be as near perfect as it
was possible for it to be.
In order to pack all apples well
it had been found necessary to j
use two sizes of boxes, the California box, which was the same
as the box used in British Columbia, and the Oregon box,
which was a little shorter.     The
apples   were  all   wrapped   ^d | mahlme. thcre over Sunday and

Apples would |
their ends as they would support a greater pressure from the
calyx to the stem than laterally.
The cost of packing was about
fifty cents per box.
The question might be asked,
"What is to be gained by all this
work?" Before starting this
system, Hood River apples were
bringing 85c. per box. Now the
best Spitzenburgs were bringing
$3.15 per box and Newtown
Pippin $2.75.
MR. KYDD
next resumed his lecture,   this]
portion dealing with the horse.
By means of a diagram he illustrated the good points and bad I
points of  the   animal   and   the'
many diseases peculiar to it. The'
best class of horses to breed also
received due consideration.   The j
care of a horse's teeth and many ;

Dr. White remained at this end
of the valley a few days longer
hoping our genial climate would
benefit his wife's health which
has not been very good lately.
They came down from Summer-
land on Thursday to attend the
Thanksgiving concert.
Between thirty and forty ladies
and gentlemen were present at
the meeting on Monday night to

A large congregation was present at the special Thanksgiving-

Holmes considered for a little time.
"Put Into plain words, the iratter is
thl3," said he. "In your opinion theie 1^
a diabolical agency which makes l~);irt
moor an unsafe abode for a Basker
ville���that is your opinion?"
"At least 1 might go the length o?
saying that thee lj some evidence that
this may l.e so."
"Exactly. Bjt surely, if your supernatural theory be conect, it could
work the young man evil in London as
easily as in Devonshire. A devil with
merely local powers H'te a parish vestry would be too Inconceivable a thing."
"You put thfi mtrtcr more flippantly,
Mr. Holmes, than you would probably
do if you were broupht Into personal
contact with thee things, Your ad
vice, then, as I u iderstand It, Is that
the young man Will be ns scfe In
Devonshire as in ondnn lie comes in
fifty minutes. What would you tteuiii
mend?"
"1 reconmend, air, that you ta';e a
cab,  call  off  your    spiniel    who    is
scratching at my front door, and pro
��pd to Waterloo to meet Sir Henry
3a*kervllle."
"And then?"
"And then yo'i will say nothing to
,1m at all until 1 have made up my
ilnd about the matter."
"How Ic.Tig will it take you to make
ip your mind?"
"Twe:ity-four hours, At ten o'cloc':
o-morrow, Dr. Mortimer, I will be
tuch  obliged  to  von If you  win call
pen me here, ai::i It will be of help
o me in my plans for the future if
ou will bring Sir Henry Bas.;ervlllr-
,'ith you."
"I will do so, Mr. I-Iclroes." He scrib
led the appointment on his si.in cu'..
; rid hurried off In his strange, peering
ibseut-miuded fashion. Holmes stopped
Ulna at the head of the stair.
"Only one more question, Dr. Morti

"lliree people uiu."
"Did any ted it alter?"
"i have uot Uearu 01 any."
"Thank you. laoud morning."
Holmes returned to his seat with
that quiet look 01 inword satisfaction
which meant that lie had a congenial
task before him.
"Going out, Watson?"
"Unless 1 can help you."
"Mo, my dear fellow, it is at the hour
uf action that 1 turn to you lor aid.
ilut th.s is splendid, really unique from
borne points of v.ew. When you pass
Uradley's would you ask him to send
up a pound of the strongest shag
tobacco'.' 'lhani. you. It would be as
well If you could make It convenient
uot to return before evening. Then 1
should be very glad to compare impressions as to tnis most Interesting problem which has been submitted to us
this morning."
1 knew that seclusion and solitude
were very necessary lor my frlaad In
those hours of Intense mental concentration during which he weighed every
;.article of evidence, constructed alternative theories, balanced one against
the other, and made up his mind as to
which points were essentia] and which
Immaterial. I therefore spent the day
t my club and did not return to Biker
;.treat until evening, it was nearly nine
o'clock when 1 found myself In the sitting room once mere.
My first Impression as I opened the
'oor wns that a frp had broken out, for
're room was so filled with s"noke that
he light of the lamp upon the table
���/as blurred by it. As I entered, however, my fears were set at rest, for It
vas the acrid fumes of strong coarse
'obacco which took me by the throat
nd set me coughing. Through the haze
had a vague vision of Holmes In his
resslng-gov/n coiled up In an armchair with his black clay pipe between
is lips. Several rolls of paper lay
round him.
"Caught crld, V'atson?" said he.
"No, lt'3 this poisonous atmosphere."
"I suppose It Is pretty thick, now that
ou mention it."
"Thick! It Is intolerable."
"Open the window, then! You have
een at your club all day, I perceive."
"My dear Holmes!"
"Am I right?"
"Certainly, but how ?"
He laughed at my bewildered expres
Ion.
"There Is a delightful freshness
bout you, Watson, which makes it a
leasure to exercise any small powers
/iiich 1 possess at your expense. A
.entlenum goes forth on a showery and
airy day. He returns immaculate In
ne evening with the gltss slill on his
.at and his boots. He has been a tlx
ure therefore all day. He is not a man
v'itli Intimate friends. Where, then,
:oiild lie have bee.;? Is It not obvious?"
"Well, it Is lather obvious."
"The world Is full of obvious things
which nobody by any chance ever oh
serves. Where do you think that I have
jeen?"
"A fixture abo."
"On the contrary, I have been to
Devonshire."
"In spirit?"
"Exactly. My body has remained In
this armchair, and has, I regret to ob-
rerve, consumed in my absence two
arge pots of coffee and an Incredible
.'.mount of tobacco. After you lert 1
sent down to Stamford'3 for the Ord-
lance map of this portion of the moor,
md my spirit has hovered over It all
lay. I flatter myself that I could find
'.iy way about."
"A large scale may, I presume?"
"Very large." He unrolled one sec-
ion and held It over his knee. "Here
you have the particular district which
concerns us. That Is BaskervIUe Hall
In the middle,"
"With a wood round It?"
"Exactly. I fancy the Yew Alley,
though not marked under that name,
must stretch along this line, with the
moor, as you perceive, upon the right
of It. This small clump of buildings
here is the hamlet of Orimpen, where
our friend Dr. Moi timer has his head-
[uaters. Within a radius of Bve miles
there are, as you see, only a very lew
scattered dwellings. Here is Latter
:a!i, which was mentioned in the narrative. There is a house indicated here
vnich may be the residence of the
naturalist���Stapleton, if 1 remember
:igbt, was his name. Here are two
loorland farm-houses, High Tor and
i-'oulinlre. Then fourteen miles away
the great convict prison of Prlncetowu.
Between and around these scattered
points extends the desolate, lifeless
noor. This, then, Is the stage upon
which tragedy has been played, ami
upon which we may help to play li
again."
"it must be a wild place."
"Yes, the setting Is a worthy one. if
the devil did desire to have a hand in
the affairs of men "
"Then you are yourself Inclining to
the supernatural explanation."
"The devil's agents may be of flesh
and blood, niay they uot? There art
two questions waking for us at the out
set. The one Is whether any crime bafc
jeen committed at all; the second is,
what Is the crime and how was It com
nlttedV Of course, If Dr. Mortimer's
surmise should be correct, and we ar;
lealing with forces outside the or
Unary laws of Nature, there is an end
of our Investigation. But we are bound
o exhaust all other hypotheses before
ailing back upon this one. I think we'i.
shut that window again, if you don't
:ind. It is a singular thing, but 1 End
.hat a concentrated atmosphere help.-
i concentration of thought. I have no
mshed lftothe length of getting tnTe
a box to think, but that is the logical
utcome of my convictions. Have yoc
.urned the case over la your mind?"
"Yes, I have thought a good deal ol
t In the couise of the day."
"What do you make of it?"
"It Is very bewildering."
"It has certainly a character of At
wn. There are points of   distinction
nbout it. That change in the footprints
or example.  What do you  make    u
hat?"
"Mortimer said that the man hat;
/alked on tiptoe down that portion ol
.he alley."
"He only  repeated  whit some to,
had said at the Inquest. Why should a
i.ian walk on tiptoe down the alley?"
���What then?"
"He was running. Watson���running
desperately, running for his life, run
nlng until he burst his heart and fell
dead upon his face."
"Running from  what?"
"There lies our problem. There are
Indications that the man was crazed
with fear before ever be began to
run."
"How can you say that?"
"I am presuming that the cause of
his fears came to Llm across the moor.
If that were so, and it seems most probable, only a man who had lost his wits
would have run from the house Instead
of towards It. If the gipsy's evidence
may be taken as true, he ran with
cries for help In the direction where
help was least likely to be. Then,
again, whom was he waiting for that,
night, and why was he waiting for him
in the Yew Alley rather than In his
own house?"
"You think that he was waiting for
someone?"
"The man was elderly and infirm.
We can understand his taking an evening stroll, but the ground was damp
and the night Inclement, is it natural
that he should stand for five or ten
minutes, as Dr. Mortimer, with more
practical sense than I should have
given hlui credit for, dedu:jd from the
cigar ash?"
"But he went out every evening."
"I think it unlikely that he waited
at the moorgate every evening. On the
contrary, the evidence is that he avoided the moor. That night he waited
there. It was the night before he made
his departure for Loudon. The thing
takes shape, Wat ton. It becomes coherent. Might I ask you to hand me
my violin, and we will postpone all further thought upon this business until
we have had the advantage of meeting
Dr. Mortimer and Sir Henry Basker-
ville In the morning."

CHAPTER IV.
Our breakfast-table was cleared
parly, and Holmes waited In his dress
inggown for the promised interview.
Our clients were punctual to their ap
polntment, for the clock had just
struck ten when Dr. Mortimer was
shown up, followed by the young baronet. The latter was a small, alert, dai lt-
eyed man about thirty years of age,
very sturdily built, with thick black
eyebrows and a strong, pugnacious
face He wore a ruddy-tlutej tweed
suit, and had the weather-beaten ap-
pearance of one who has spent most
of his time in the open air, and yet
there was something In his steady eye
and the quiet assurance of his bearing which Indicated the gentleman.
"This Is Sir Henry BaskervIUe," said
Dr. Mortimer.
"Why, yes," sa|d he, "and the
strange thing Is, Mr. Sherlock Holmes,
that If my friend here bad not proposed coming round to you this morning I should have come on my own account. I understand that you think out.
little puzzles, and I've had one this
morning which wants more thinking
out than I am able to give to it."
"Pray take a seat, Sir Henry. Do I
understand you to say that you have
yourself had some remarkable experience since you arrived In London?"
"Nothing of much Importance, Mr.
Holmes. Only a joke, as like as not. It
was this letter, If you can call It a letter, which reached me this morning."
He laid an envelope upon the table,
and we all bent over It. It was of common quality, greyish In color. The address, "Sir Henry BaskervIUe, Northumberland Hotel," was prli.ted in
rough characters; the post-mark "Charing Cross," and the date of posting
the preceding evening.
"Who knew that you were going to

:0MMUNICATI0NS
We do not hold ourselves responsib'e for the
opinions of correspondents.
o Ihe Editor of The Penticton Press :
Will you permit me, through
our columns to refer to an arti-
le which appeared in the 'Press'
>f last week relative to the atti-
iude of the Trustee Board of one
of the churches toward the Debating Society of this town. The
fact that this article, as far as
its reference to the Trustee Board
is concerned, is altogether misleading and without foundation
renedrs it necessary that an explanation be given to the public.
The article refers to certain
conditions by the imposing of
which the Board "practically refused the use of the church to
the Society;" conditions so "humiliating that no self-respecting
society could accept them."
These conditions were referred
to but not stated; and it might
b3 well for the public to understand them and decide for them-
s )lves whether or not they are
humiliating, and whether they
might be regarded as barriers to
the use of the church.
The conditions are three in
number:
1. That the Society pay $1.50
an evening for the use of the
church; and in the event of that
sum being insufficient to cover
the expense, that $1.75 be charged. Permit me to say that the
p;ice named,$1.50, is the estimated
actual cost of opening the church
for an evening, together with
the expenses incidental there-to;
and this bare cost was named by
the Board as the figure constituting the one condition. The Board
in fixing the amount at this figure was merely asking the Lit.
to pay its share in the actual
running expenses of the church
and based the first condition on
the assumption that the Society,
being "self-respecting," would
at least wish to pay its way, and
would consider any offer less
than the actual cost of things as
decidedly "humiliating."
2. That the Lit. be responsible for any damage done to
church property���damage in any
way connected with Lit. meetings. The fact must be recognized that the Trustee Board,
from the very nature of the
term, is a responsible body and
responsible for the property connected with the church, and in
view of this fact, it becomes
their duty to safeguard the interests of the church; so that in
making this condition, they were
merely exercising a right which
belonged to them and which any
reasonable being will acknowledge. In the case of damage
being done, there is positive
proof of the wisdom underlying
this condition; in the event of no
damage, the condition merely
becomes a dead letter.
3. That the Lit. be responsible for any items appearing on
programmes given under its auspices; that care be taken that
such programme be not inconsistent with the fact of being given
in a consecrated church,���a condition reasonable and necessary
in view of the possibility of objectionable features finding a
place in the evening's entertainment���and in this respect the
Board showed its wisdom in considering that the proper time for
such things to be guarded a-
gainst is before they happen;
and thus, by this understanding
made at the beginning, reduce
to a minimum the possibility of
any unpleasant performance.
These three conditions can in
no way be regarded as practically refusing the use of the church
to the Literary Society- and let
me add that the attitude of the
Board toward this matter was
one of. sympathetic interest and
of western breadth; qualities
which are evidenced by the conditions referred to, and in which
every effort was made to meet
the requirements of the Society,

understood them when we wrote
the article referred to.���Ed.)
World Happenings.
A national, non-partizan association has been formed in England to oppose the Socialist
movement which has assumed
alarming proportions, no less
than 1,500 Socialist meetings under various auspices being held
on Sundays. Lord Balfour, the
President of the association, has
issued a powerful appeal to the
nation, in which he points out
the danger that confronts the
country for having made no attempt in the past to check the
Socialist propaganda, and the
increased danger of allowing it
to spread any further. He closes
his appeal in these words:
"In the supposed interest of
the 'majority' now one and now
another section is victimized and
'the liberty of the individual'
through constant infringement
becomes little more than a phrase.
The basis upon which our civilization rests, the central fact
which has guided its evolution
from the condition of a mere
savage horde to that of the
greatest empire in the world, is
being sapped, and unless this is
stayed we shall be led to the enervation which characterized the
latter days of the Roman Empire
and which has heralded the decay of most of the great civilizations of the past.
An Ottawa dispatch appearing
in yesterday's U. S. papers stated that Governor-General Grey
has unofficially announced that
members of the royal family will
visit Canada in connection with
the centenary of the landing of
Champlain. Whether it will be
the King and Queen or the
Prince and Princess of Wales he
did not disclose, but the impression created in the minds of those
who heard his remarks was that
it will be the King and Queen. ���
