SUMMERLAND.

have been pursuing courses of
study during the past year.
Last Wednesday, July 1st, was
celebrated this year by neighbor-
1 ing towns in the valley.     Summerland   celebrators,   except   a
few who   needs  must  stay   at
home, repaired to   Kelowna  to

' baseball honors were carried off
1 by our boys.

erection of another new building
on Shaughnessy Ave. We understand that when completed it

the utmost importance.
I have the honour to be.

Laving the Foundation.
Doubtless every citizen is filled
with a patriotic ambition to
see Penticton develope into a
model town and community.
Not only is it the desire of such
that the town become commercially important, be blessed with
material comforts, or be noted
for its fine buildings and well
kept streets, but that it may at
the same time be noted for its
intelligent, moral and law abiding citizens. It is the desire
that the future city of Penticton
be free from slum quarters, and
have as little poverty as is possible in a centre of Population.
Penticton has been specially
endowed by nature for the building up of just such a place. The
climate is the finest in Canada,
the scenery as beautiful as can
be found anywhere, while the
townsite itself is ideal. The
surrounding mountains, or rather
hills, are parklike in character,
covered with large evergreens,
and are so free from underbrush
that one can ride for miles on
horseback. The grass is luxuriant and deer and other game
abound. Okanagan and Dog
Lakes afford the best facilities
for those fond of aquatic sports.
The fruit growing possibilities
of the place cannot be surpassed
by any section of the now famous Okanagan. In short, n
more desirable place could be
found in which to establish a
home.
Nature has done  its part; the
rest lies with the inhabitants, j
The foundations are  now being
laid.    Shall  they be  laid  firm,
solid and enduring, or shall the
citizens during future years be |
obliged to tear down the struc-!
ture in order to lay new founda-
tions.    Let every step, therefore, I
be considered,   and let not the
future be marred for the sake of |
any immediate gain.    Let no ef- j
fort be spared to induce the very j
best class of people to make their
homes here.    Let the town Ik
made clean and  free from social '
evils, and such people will come, i
The greatest of all evils in the
west is that of. drink. This I
must be faced in the very near
future. Already the forces are !
marshalling, and victory will in
Ihe end rest with prohibition.
Peachland. Summerland and
Naramata, in the immediate vi-j
cinity of Penticton, are already j
temperance communities. Shall
Penticton stand alone of all the
places on the southern half of
Okanagan Lake? Assuradoly
not if it is to secure the class oi
settlers most desired. We do
not intimate that Penticton is
an intemperate town. Such is
not the case, for, among the actual residents, the number addicted to drink is exceptionally
small. However, people of the
higher type hesitate to settle in
a community where their children must almost daily come into
contact with persons under the
influence of liquor, and be subjected to the debasing influences
of foul language which invariably
accompanies drunkeness.
The stock argument (or rather
assertion, fori! lacks the dignity
of an argument)   that  a town
cannot amount to anything without licensed hotels, is being completely exploded in eastern Canada. Owen Sound, Ont, population, 7,000, has seven hotels with
no li(|uor licenses; Midland, population, 6,000, five hotels and no
licenses; Parry Sound, (j, 500
people, with nine temperance
hotels. The latter town never
had liquor sold in it, and yet has
three railroads, five lumber mills,
seven copper mines, and numerous factories. Toronto Junction
with 40,000 inhabitants is under
prohibition, with numerous first
class temperance hotels. The
recent vote on the liquor question
in that place resulted in trebbl-
' ing the majority for prohibition.
These places, together with
| numerous others have all been
won on a three fifths vote, and
are ample proof that prohibition
does prohibit. Toronto, proper,
recently reduced the number of
its liquor licenses by 112. These
rosults have all been brought
about by the voice of the people.
The fact that good results have
��� been obtained, and that no" blind
[ pigs" exist may be verified by
communicating with the Mayors
of the above mentioned towns or
cities.
Under prohibition the proprie-
! tor of a hotel, instead of giving
, his chief attention to his bar,
gives it to making his house attractive to the tourist trade.
Board may be had at $1.50 per
day or $5.00 per week, in thea-
bove-mentioned places, and many
of the hotels pay a dividend as
high as forty per cent. It is thus
sheer nonsense to talk of a hotel
; not paying without a liquor license. The rates would of course
necessarily be higher in British
Columbia than the figures just
given.
When a merchant establishes
a store, not only himself but the
whole community, the wholesale-
man and  the  manufacturer all
���
benefit; but when a liquor license
is granted, the whole community
is impoverished for the benefit
of two men���the hotel-keeper
and the distiller. Following in
the wake of the saloon comes
ruined homes, accident, crime,
suicide, asylums and prostitution.
Even in Penticton nearly every
case in the police court is directly resultant from drink. Money
sDent for liquor, to say the least,
is blood money. It pays no bills,
and produces nothing but degradation and misery. Men who
have been forced out of the
liquor business by prohibition
have taken up other work and
proved good, useful citizens.
We have no quarrel  with any
persons engaged in   the   liquor
ausiness; they hold their licenses
under the  law,   and practically
from the people.    The  responsi-
bility rests with the public and j
the public alone.     However,  a
license to sell liquor does not in-1
elude   a   licanse   to   conduct   a j
gambling house.
In view of the fact that li-j
lenses are being reduced in Ontario, and that Manitoba is passing a bill to abolish treating, we
would utter a word of warning;
igainst increasing the number of
licenses in Penticton. A well-
Bquipped tourists' hotel would be
welcome, but let the citizens of:
Penticton decline to put their
names to a petition that would
further increase the number of
licensed places. A temperance
tourist hotel will be built when
the business warrants, and such
only will meet the requirements
of the tourist trade, as those who
bring their families here to spend
the summer months will prefer
staying at a quiet temperance
house.

seemed strange.* because lie understood
that the fortresses there were already
tilled with dissatisfied Inhabitants of
that disaffected land. Mis first Impression bud been that banishment was Intended, and he had expected to lie
landed   at   some   Swedish   or   German
port, hut a chance remark made by
the captain at breakfast Inclined him
to believe lhat there were other prisoners on hoard not quite so favorably
treated ns himself. lint why should
he he sent out of itussia proper or even
removed from st. Petersburg, which,
he was well aware. Buffered from no
lack of jail's? The continued voyage
of the steamer through an open sen
again aroused the hope that Stockholm was the objective point. If they
landed hi in there. It merely meant fl
little temporary inconvenience, and.
onee ashore, he hoped to concoct a
telegram so apparently innocent that
it would win through to his friend and
give Drummond at least the knowledge
of his abiding place. The thought of
Drummond aroused all his old fear
that the Englishman was to be the real
.victim, and this enforced voyage was
merely a convenient method of getting
himself out of the way.
After lunch a dismal drizzle set in
that presently increused to a steady
downpour, which drove LermontofT to
his cabin, nnd. thnt room being unpro
vlded with either window or electric
light, the prince struck a match to one
of the candles newly placed on Uie
washstitnd. He pushed the electric
button summoning the steward and.
giving him some money, asked if there
wns such n thing as n piece of stone on
hoard, curried as ballast or for any
other purpose. The steward snld he
would inquire nnd finally returned
with a sharpening stone used for the
knives In the galley. Molting his door,
Lertnontoff begun nn experiment nnd
nt once forgot he was a prisoner. He
filled the wash liasin with water nnd.
opening one of the glass stoppered bottles, took out with the point of his
knife n most minute portion of the substance within, which he dissolved In
the water with no apparent effect
Standing the whetstone up on end, be
filled the glass syringe and directed a
fine, vaporous spray against the stone.
It dissolved before his eyes as a sand
castle on the shore dissolves at tlie
touch of an incoming tide.
"By St. Teter of Russia." he cried.
"I've got It at Inst! I must write to
Katherine about this."
Summoning the steward ngaln to
take away this fluid nnd bring hlra nn-
other pailful of fresh water. LermontofT endeavored to extract some information from the deferential young
man.
"Hnve you ever been In Stockholm?"
"No. excellency."
"Or in nn.v of the Germnn ports?"
"No, excellency."
"Do you know where we are making
for now?"
"No. excellence- "
"Nor when we shall reach our destl-
n:i.Mi,n?"
"No  excellency "
���'Von hnve S'ime prisoners aboard?"

he drunk  the commerce of tlie world
Would speedily stop."
"Tills is a government steamer, excellency, and If a sailor here disobeys
orders he Is guilty of mutiny. On a
merchant vessel they would merely
put liiin in irons."
"I see. Now. do you want to earn a
few gold pieces?"
"Excellency hns been very generous
to me already." was the noncommittal
reply of the steward, whose eyes nevertheless twinkled at the mention of
gold.
"Well, here's enough to make a Jingle In your pocket, und here nre two
letters which you are to try to get delivered when you return to St. Petersburg."
"Yes. excellency."
"You will do your best?"
"Yes, excellency."
"Well. If you succeed I'll make your
fortune when I'm released."
"Thank yon. excellency."
That   night  nt  dinner  the  captain
opened a bottle of vodka and conversed
genially on many topics without touching upon the particular BUblect of lib
erty, lie partook sparingly of the
Stimulant, and. to LerinolitofTs disappointment, it did not in tbe least loosen
his tongue, und thus, still ignorant of
liis fale. the prince turned in for the
second night aboard the steamer.
When   he   awoke   next   morning   he
found tlie engines bad stopped aud, as
the vessel was motionless, surmised it
had reached harbor,    lie heard the Intermittent chuck chuck  of a  pony en- .
gine and the screech of an Imperfectly '���
oiled   crane   und   guessed   that   cargo
was being put ashore.
"Now." lie said to himself, "If my
former sentinel is at the door they are
going to take me to prison. If he Is
absent. I am to lie set free."
He jumped up, threw back the holt,
opened the door.    There  was no one
there.    In n very few minutes he was ,
on  deck  and  found  that the steamer
was lying in  the  lee of a  huge rock. I
which    reminded    him    of    Mont   St.
Michel   in   Normandy,   except  that   it
was about half again as high nnd three
times as long und thnt there were no
buildings of any kind upon it. nor, in- [
deed, the least sign of human habitation. I
The morning was line. In the east
the sun had just risen and was flooding the grim rock with a rosy light
Except this rock no trace of land
was visible ns far as tbe eye could see.
Alongside the steamer was moored a
sailing boat with two masts, but provided also witli thole plus and sweeps !
for rowing. The sails were furled,
and she had evidently been brought to
the steamer's side by menus of the
oars. Into this craft the crane was
lowering boxes, bags und whatnot,
which three or four men were stowing away. The mate was superintending this transshipment, and the cap-
tnln, standing with his back against
tlie deckhouse, was handing one by one
certain papers, which I.erniontoff took j
to be bills of lading, to a young man I
who signed in a book for each he re-
celved. When this transaction was
completed, the young man saluted the
captain nnd descended over the ship's
side of the sailboat.
"(!ood morning, captain. At anchor.
I see," said Lermontoff.
"No. not nt anchor, Merely lying
here. The sea Is too deep and affords
no anchorage at this point."
"Where are all these goods going?"
The captain nodded his bend at the
rock, and Lermontoff gassed at it agii'i.
running his eyes from top to bottom
without seeing any vestige of civilization.
"Then you lie to tbe lee of this rock,
mid the small bout takes the supplies
ashore?"
"Exactly." said the captain.
"The settlement. I take it. is on the
other side.    What is It���a  lighthouse?"
"There's no lighthouse," said the captain.
"Sort of constgnnrd, then?"
"Yes. in a way. Tbey kep a lookout.     And  now.   highness.   I   see your

overcoat   is on your  buck.    Have you
left anything in your room?"
Tlie prince luugbed.
"No.   captain;   I    forgot   to   bring   u
portmanteau with me."
"Then I must say farewell to you
here."
"What, you are not going to maroon
tne on this pebble In the ocean?"
"You will he well taken care of,
highness."
"What place is fliis?"
"It is called the Trojwmondoff, highness, und the water surrounding you is
the Baltic."
"is it Russian territory?"
"Very, very Russian." returned tlie
captain, drawing a deep breath. "This
way. If your highness pleases. Tuere
is n rope ladder, which is sometimes a
little unsteady for a landsman, so he
careful."
"Oh. I'm accustomed to rope ladder?.
Ilyvnstl, cnptaln."
"Hyvastl. yonr highness."
Ami    with    this   mutual   goodby   In
Finnish   tlie   prince   went   down   the
twaying ladder.
CHAPTER XV.
BOR once the humorous expression laid vanished from Captain Kenipt's face, anil thnt
good uatured mnn sat In the
��� laiiity drawing room of the Mat a pic
���nre of perplexity     Dorothy hurt u,id
aim tne story of the uinilist. saying
she intended to purchase the yacht and
outlining what she proposed io do with
,t when it was her own. Now she sat
silent opposite the genial captain, while
(Catherine stood by the window and
talked enough for two. sometimes wux-
iug indignant and occasionally giving
!u terse language an opinion of her
futber, as is the blessed privilege of
every girl born in tlie land of tlie free,
while tlie father took the censure with
the unprotesling mildness of his nature.
"My dear girls, yon really must listen
to reason. What you propose to do is so
absurd that it doesn't even admit of
argument Why. it's a filibustering
expedition, that's what it is. You
girls are as crazy as Walker of Nicaragua. Ho you imagine lhat a retired
captain of the United Stales navy is
going to take command of a pirate
craft of far less legal stunding thnn
the Alabama, for then we were at war,
fait now we are at peace. Do you actually propose to attack tlie domain of
a friendly country? Oh!" cried the
captain, with a mighty explosion of
breath, for at this point his supply of
language entirely gave out.
"No one would know anything nbout
it," persisted Katherine,
"Not know about it? With n crew
of men picked up here in New York
und coining hnck to New York? Not
know about it? Bless my soul, the
papers would be full of It before your
men were an hour on shore. In tbe
first place, you'd never find the rock."
"Then what's the barm of going in
search of it?" demanded his daughter.
"Resides that. Johnson knows exnetly
where it is."
"Johnson, Johnson! You're surely
not silly enough to believe Johnson's
cock nnd luill story?"
"1 believe every syllable he uttered.
Tbe man's face showed thnt he was
speaking tlie truth."
"Rut. my denr Kate, yon didn't see
him at all, as I understand the yam.
He was here alone with you, was he
not, Dorothy?"
Dorothy smiled sadly.
"I told Kate all about It and gnve
my own Impression of the man's appearance."
"Y'ou are too sensible a girl to place
any credit iu what be said surely?"
"1 did believe biiu nevertheless," replied Dorothy.
"Why, look you here. False in one
thing, false in all. I'll just take a single point He speaks of a spring sending water through the cells up there
in tlie rock. Now. that is au Impossibility. Wherever a spring exists, it
comes from n source higher thnn itself."
"There nre lots of springs up in the
mountains," Interrupted Katherine. "I
know one on Mount Washington that
is ten times us high as the Rock in tlie
Baltic."
"Quite so, Katherine, quite so, hut
nevertheless there Is a lake, subterraneous or above ground, which feeds
your White Mountain spring, nnd such
a lake must be situated higher than
the spring is. Why, girl, you ought to
study bydrometeorology as well as
chemistry. Here is a rock jutting up
in midocenn"���
"It's in the Baltic, near the Russian
coast," snapped Kate, "and I've uo
doubt there are mountains in Finland
that contain the lake which feeds the
spring."
"How far is that rock from the Finnish coast, theu?"
"Two miles and a half," said Kate
quick as au arrow speeding from a
bow.
"Captain, we don't know bow far it
Is from tne coast." amended Dorothy.
"I'll never believe the thing exists
nt nil."
"Why. yes It does, father. How can
you spenk like that? Don't you know
Lieutenant Drumniond fired ut it?"
"How do you know it wns the snme
rock?"
"Because the rock fired back at him.
There cau't be two like that lu the
Baltic."
"No, nor one either," said the captain, neating the end of his patience.
"Captain Kempt." said Dorothy very
soothingly, as if she desired to quell
the rising storm, "you take the allegation about the spring of wafer to prove
that Johnson was telling untruths. 1
expect him here within au hour, nnd I
will arrange thut you have un opportunity, privately, of cross examining
him. I think when you see tlie man
ami listen to him you will believe.
\> hat makes me so sure that he is tell
In1.' the truth is the fad tint he mentioned the foreign vessel llrlmt ut this
rock, which I knew lo be true, nnd
which he could not possibly have learned anything nbout."
"lie might very well have learned all
particulars from the papers, Dorothy,
They were full enough of tlie subject
nt the time. und. remembering this, he
thought to strengthen his story by"���
Kntherlne Interrupted with great
scorn.
"By adding verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative."
"Quite so. Kate. Exactly what I was
going to say myself. But. to come buck
to the project Itself, granting the ex
Istence of the rock, granting the truth
of Johnson's story, granting everything, grunting eveu Hint the young
men are imprisoned there, of which
we have not the sllg'itest proof, we
eoilld no more succeed in cat hiring
lluil place from a frail pleasure
vncht"-
"It's built like a cruiser." said Kath
Wine.
-Kvcn If It were built like a battle
ship we would have no chance what
ever. Why, thnt rock Blight defy u
regular fleet Our venture would sim
ply be a murine Jameson rnid which
would set the whole wo id Inughiiif
when people came to hear of it."
"Johnson said lie could take it with
half a dozen men."
"No, Kate," corrected Dorothy; "he
said   Ihe   very   reverse;   that .two   or
three determined men on the rock with
repeating rifles could defeat a int. It
was I wlio suggested that we should
throw a shell mil then rush the entrance in the confusion."
Captain Kempt threw up his hands
In a gesture of despair.
"Great heavens, Dorothy Amhurst,
whom I have always regarded as the
mildest, sweeiest and most charming
of girls, lo hear you calmly propose to
throw a shell among a lot of innocent
men defending their own territory
against a perfectly unauthorized invasion! Throw a shell, say yon, as if
yon were talking of tossing a copper
to a beggar! Oh, Lord, I'm growing
old! What will become of this young
er generation? Well. 1 give it up.
Dorothy, my dear, whatever will happen to those unfortunate Russians I
shall never recover from the shock of
your shell. The thing is absolutely Impossible. Can't you sec that tin? moment you get down to details? How
are you going to procure your shells or
your shell Bring gun? They are not to
be hough! at the first hardware store
you come lo on Sixth avenue."
"Johnson says he can get them."
proclaimed Kate, with finality.
"Oh. damn Johnson! Dorothy. I beg
your pardon, but really this daughter
of mine, combined with that Johnson
of yours, is just a little more than I
can bear."
"Then what nre we to do?" demnnd-
ed his daughter. "Sit here with folded
lands?"
"That would he a great deal better
than whnt you propose. You should
do something sane. You mustn't involve a pair of friendly countries in
war. Of course tlie United States
would utterly disclaim your act nnd
discredit me if I were lunatic enough
to undertake such a wild goose chase,
which I'm not. Rut, on the other
hand, if two of our girls undertook
such nn expedition no man can predict the public clamor that might arise.
Why, when the newspapers get hold
of a question you never know where
they will end it. Undoubtedly you two
girls should be sent to prison, and with
equul undoubtedness the Americnn
people wouldn't permit It."
"You bet tbey wouldn't." snld Katherine, dropping Into slung.
"Well, then, If they wouldn't there's
war."
"One moment. Captain Kempt." said
Dorothy again In her mildest tones, for
voices had again begun to run high.
"You spoke of doing something sane.
You understand the situation. What
should you counsel us to do?"
The captain drew a long breath and
leaned back in liis chair.
"There, dad. It's up lo you." said
Katherine. "I.et ns hear your proposal, and then you'll learn how easy
it is to criticise."
"Well." said the captain hesitatingly,
"(here's our diplomatic service"���
"Utterly useless, line man is a Russian and the other an Englishman. Diplomacy not only enn do nothing, but
won't even try," cried Knte triumphantly.
"Yet." said the captain, with little
confidence, "although the two men nre
foreigners, tlie two girls are Americans."
"We don't count; we've no votes,"
said Kate. "Resides, Dorothy tried
the diplomatic service and could uot
even get accurate Information from it.
Now. father, third time and out."
"Four balls are out, Kate, and I've
only fanned the air twice. Now, girls.
I'll tell you what I'd do. You two
come with me to Washington. We will
seek a private interview with the president. He will get into coinmuuicalion
with the czar, also privately und outside of all regular channels. The czar
will put machinery In motion that is
sure to produce those two young men
much more effectuully und speedily
than any cutthroat expedition ou a
yacht."
"1 think." said Dorothy, ''that Is an
excellent plan."
"Of course It Is!" cried the captain
enthusiastically. "Don't you see the
pull the president will have? Why.
they've put an Englishman Into 'the
Jug,' und when the president communicates (his fact to the czar he will be
afraid to refuse, knowing that the next
appeal may he from America to England, and when you add a couple of
American girls to that political mix-
up, why, what chance has the czar?"
"The point you raise, captain," said
Dorothy, "is one I Wish to say a few
words about The president cannot
get Mr. Drumniond released because
the czar and nil his government will
he compelled to deny dial llie.v know
iiiiythiiig of him. Even the president
Couldn't guiiranlee dial Ihe English
Until would keep silence if he were si't
nt liberty. The czar would know thnt.
hut your plan would undoubtedly produce Prince Ivan Lermontoff, All the
president hns to do Is to tell the ezur
thnt the prince is engaged to un American girl and Lermontoff will be allowed to go."
"But." objected the captain, "as the
prince knows the Englishman is in
prison, how could they he sure of
John keeping quiet when Drummond
Is his best friend?"
"He cannot know tbt't. because tin'
prince wus arrested several days before Drummond was."
"They have probably chucked them
boll! Into Hie same cell." said the cap
tain, litil  Dorothy shook her head.
"If they had Intended lo do thai they
--.������ii doubtless have arrested them
together. I am sure thnt one dies not
know the fate of the other, therefore
the czar can quite readily let Lermontoff go, and he is certain to do that at
n word from Ihe president Besides
tills, I nm us confident that Jack is not
in the TrogzmondolT as 1 am sure flint
Drummond is. Johnson snld it wns a
prison for foreigners."
"Oh. Dorothy." cried tlie captain,
with a deep sigh, "if we've got back
ngnin to Johnson"��� He waved his
hand und shook his bond.
The muid opened tlie door nnd said,

make the best bargain you can for me.
A man is so much better ut this kind
of negotiation than a woman."
"But surely, my dear Dorothy, you
won't persist in buying this yacht?"
"It's her own money, father," put In
Kutberiue.
"Keep quiet," said the captain, ris
lug, for the first time speaking with
real severity, whereupon Kutherlne, In
spite of the fact that she was older
than twenty-one, was wise enough to
obey.
"Yes, I nm quite determined, enp
tain," said Dorothy sweetly.
"But, my dear woman, don't you see
how you've been hoodwinked by this
man Johnson? He is shy of a job. He
has already swindled you out of $20,-
000."
"No; be asked for .$10,000 only, Cap-
tuln Kempt, nnd I voluntarily doubled
the amount."
"Nevertheless he hns worked you up
to believe Unit these young men are iu
that rock. Ho has done this for a very
crafty purpose, and his purpose seems
likely to succeed. He knows be will
he well paid, und you have promised
him a bonus besides. If be, with his
Captain Kidd crew, gets you on that
yacht you will only step ashore by
giving him every penny you possess.
That's bis object. He knows you are
Starting out to commit u crime Unit's
the word. Dorothy; there's no use In
our mincing matters you will be per
fectly helpless In Ills hands. C; course
I could not allow my daughter Kate to
go on such an expedition."
"I am over twenty-one years old."
cried Kate, the liglii of rebellion In her
eyes.
"I do not Intend that either of yon
shall go, Katherine."
"Dorothy, I'll not Rubral! to thnt,"
cried Kutherlne, with a rising tremor
of anger In her voice. "I shall not be
set aside like a child. Who bus more
nt stake thnn I? And ns for capturing
the rock, I'll dynamite It myself nnd
bring homo as large a specimen of It
us the yacht will carry nnd set it up
ou Bedloe's island beside the goddess
and sny, There's your statue of Liberty, anil there's your statue of Tyranny!1 "
"Kntherlne." ehlded her father, "1
never before believed Hint a child of
mine could talk such driveling nonsense."
"Paternal heredity, father," retorted
Kale.
"Yonr presidential plan. Cnptaln
Kempt," Interposed Dorothy, "is excellent so far as Prince Lol'tuontoff Is
concerned, but ii cauiiol rescue Lieutenant Drummond. Now. there are
two things you can do for me that will
make me always your debtor, as, In-
doe'!, I am already, and the first Is to
purchase for me Ihe yacht The second is to form your own judgment of
the man Johnson nnd tf you distrust
him then engage for me one-half the
crew nnd see thnt they are picked
Americans."
"First sane idea I hnve heard since
I came Into this fiat," growled tbe captain.

The two school closing exercises were entertaining, and
brought to light the results of
the hard work the teachers have
done during the past term. The
primary teacher, Miss Sharp, entertained Friday afternoon, when
with pretty drills, recitations,
chor is< -:, and a short time spent
on each of the subjects taken up
during the term, the afternoon
passed all too quickly. Master
H. Urquhart read an address and
presented the teacher with a cut
glass pickle dish on behalf of the
school, after which Miss Sharp
replied in a few fitting remarks.
Then Tuesday afternoon the old
school house was crowded with
interested parents and others to
take in the program which Principal Murray and his scholars
had planned and prepared so
well, The program commenced
with the singing of the Dominion
Hymn, followed by a half hour
spent reviewing geography. Another song, "Hearts of Oak,"
was sung, and an instructive and
interesting half hour in nature
study was spent. Then the
school lustily sang "Tramp,
tramp, tramp," after which fifteen minutes was taken up with
literature, and was enjoyed immensely. The school then sang
;i couplet which was composed
by one of the pupils for the occasion. The honor rolls were
then presented by J. L. Vicary,
one of the trustees. Wm. Dryden, Ethel House, and Archie j
Seaton, procured them for regu-!
larity, deportment, and profic- j
iency, respectively, from Miss
Sharp's school; and J. McLaugh-|
Ian, Olive Young, Olive Fergu-l
son, from Mr. Murray's school,
for proficiency, deportment and
regularity, respectively. Messrs.
Vicary, Morrison, Whyte, Callen-
dar, and Ferguson, and Rev. Mr.
Ritchie, each spoke in glowing
terms of   Mr.  Murray and his

A very quiet hut pretty wedding took place the last day of
June at six o'clock a. m., at Mrs.
Vivian's home, when Miss
Phoebe O. Sharpe was married
to Mr. Harold E. McColl. The
house was beautifully decorated
with cut flowers of every description and color. Added to the
beauty within was the ideal
weather without. The ceremony
was according to the ritual of the
Uaptist Church, and was performed by Rev. Thos. N. Ritchie,
past pastor of the Church here.
