IN CLIMATE, soil aud productiveness, no country in the world equals British Columbia.]
a    You may travel the world over and you will not   find  a  spot, where  are raised, more,
better or more diversified crops than right here in our own province.    Until quite recently'
tlie name of British Columbia suggested to the minds of a great many people a wild land,
[difficult of access, bands of lurking and blood thirsty Indians waitfug for the scalp  of thel
white man and vast  forests that have  never seen  or felt  the axe of the woodman.    How
totally different the scene and how our eastern brothers ought to envy us our land of sun.;
shine, of trees aud rare and beautiful flowers, onr immense crops, luscious fruits, mountain
scenery and ocean breeze.    Now that the Kast is beginning to realize that  they were   idly
sleeping while great changes have been   taking  place  in   the   West  among   their  active!
brethren, the trip to the coast has become very popular with tourists, for this trip combines!
all the comforts and luxuries that any eastern point can offer.
The City of Vancouver, the metropolis of British Columbia, has a most interesting
history. In June of 1792 Captain George Vancouver sailed into Burrard Inlet, which he
named as he also did all the neighboring islands, inlets and lands. His ships were
anchored three miles to the west of the city in the Gulf of Georgia. Captain Vancouver
was on a voyage of exploration and hoped to find a northwestern passage through North
America. Although Vancouver visited in 1792 it was almost 100 years later before the
town began to assume proportions of importance.
Vancouver is perhaps 20 years old and it would be hard indeed to find a city that
can compare with it for growth and advancement in so short a time. The city itself was
first called by various names, perhaps the most frequent names by which it was known
'Acre GastoWfl and Granville. It was incorporated in 1886 aud was named after the great
explorer and sailor, who was the first white man to visit its site.
It was but a few years after its incorporation that Vancouver was visited by a
must disastrous fire. The fatal day was on a Sunday aud sj swift was the destruction that
it required but several hours to lay waste and ruin where once stood a flourishing
Looking at Vancouver today, it is difficult to realize that the city of four and six
story structures, of electric cars, paved streets and beautiful residences, the home of 42,000!
pr isperous and contented souls is not yet a quarter of a century old. Vancouver's business!
b'ocks are indicative of the prosperity of the city. They are mostly of stone which is
quarried but a short distance away and present a most imposing appearance. All available
locations ou the principal streets have been taken up and the buildings erected this year
will greatly increase the importance of Vancouver as a commercial center.
Many delightful hours can be spent   in the   beautiful   Stanley   Park,  or at   the ]
inviting Knglish Bay or Greer's Beach resorts.    The street cars cover the city thoroughly, !
the mountains around about make inviting picnic grounds, enjoyable trips can be   had  on
the  sound, and   all  in all  this   is   just the city for  the tourist.    We have   yet to find the
visitor who was disappointed in bis impressions of Vancouver.
Space does not permit a more thorough mention of the advantages an 1 resources
"four lovely home. In another column will be found figures and facts that will interest
each and every one of us.
In concluding we will add a few words   legarding   the   merchants  and   manufac
hirers of Vancouver.    Taken as a whole they are progressive aud liberal in their views aud
the establishments aud industries they operate compare most favorably with   any in  other!
municipalities even   though   of greater pretentions  than Vancouver.    It is to our business 1
men that we owe the success of this review.    When approached by our representative they!
•expressed their willingness to help in the project.     In these following columns we present
brief sketches of some of our representative houses.     F.ach in his particular line has some-!
I thing to offer that will interest you. ^
Patronize Home Industry and by so doing help to make  your city famous.    This
I's what we would like to impress upon our readers.    Money spent  at home will  remain at
How happy, oh! how happy he must be ;
The Indian!    He's no monthly bills to meet.
No collar tall, nor tight-laced corsets he;
Nor fancy silklels for his sockless feet.
Pajamas?    My! he never dreamed of such;
No agents knock fore'er at his tejiee.
His better half his pockets doth not touch;
No grocer doth his salary garnishee.
How blest lives lie; he never owes a cent;
He never has to dodge nor make excuse;
No landlord waits upon his porch for rent;
Scot free lives he from civilized abuse.
What camels we, loaded with every plight I
Oh! the affliction to be born a white.
How cruel !    Yes, how cruel 'tis to teach
These natives to adopt pursuits like ours;
To turn night into day—at dawn home reach,
From strenuous business, or unwise amours.
To take him from the hunt and teach him how
To navigate a plow across a field;
To toil and sweat with harvest sun, and show
Him how to garner and to swsp the yield;
To teach him luxuries; to educate
His palate up to t-a with sugar in it.
To say his prayers and blindly trust to fate;
To bet on winning horse and yet not win it.
Sore trials we've had to our queer ways to tie him.
But, rest our souls, we know we mean well by him.

One of the essentials of modern
life is proper nttention to one's
wearing apparel. "Cleanliness is
next to godliness," and this may be
said to extend to the well dressed
appearance of a mun ns well. We expect a successful man to appear such
and it is a good passport to a position as well us said to be to society.
A tailoring shop which devotes Its
special attention to giving its pat
ions thc very best fitting, the most
dressy, the finest finished garments
Hint nre made, is that which is con
ducted by Messrs. Simon and Company. Their elegant shop will be
found at ii? Cordova street and has
been established lor sixteen years.
Iluring all this time they have enjoyed a most enviable reputation for
making the finest garments and gar!
ments that could not be surpassed
lor style and tit and finish, and the
satisfaction that they gave the pat-
rone. These gentlemen employ only
union nibor and this alone would be
a guarantee of the highest clnss of

The bicycle has a position In the favor of the public that Is steadily growing. When first a practical Invention,
it became a fad with the extremist In
all things, but It has now assumed Its
right position In the community and Is
steadily becoming more and more popular ns a mentis of recreation and pleasure nnd locomotion. Like nil things
of human construction thnt are In
dully or constant use, the bicycle wears
out and requires repair at times, nl-
thougb more and more progress has
been made in the strengthening and
durability and endurance qualities of
the machine. It is therefore that we
refer In this connection to the bicycle
shop which Is operated by Mr. A. E.
Williams at '.17 Westminster avenue.

Is done here. Baby carriages are
