Great  Northern, into Hip Siiuilkaiuceii,  a country hillierio traversed on I >  by wagon roads and trails, many  changes are taking place, particularly in the old towiis. Many  of these have rem .lined at a  standstill for years past, and are  only now taking on new life.. .To  a (.Jreenwoodite, therefore, taking  a trip through this part of the  province, there are many things  of interest along- the way, both  in the Similkameen proper and in  the Okanagan country.  After a few hours' ride on the  new railway over Anarchist  mountain, ^we :reach Oroville,  Wash., for a considerable tjime  the terminus, of the line, and  here remain for the night. Oroville is quite a thriving' town.and  is provided with good hotel accommodations, a new hotel having just been opened there, In  the morning the mixed train  leaves for the present ternvnus.  Keremeos, B.C. i  After a period of slow progress,  construction west is again being  rushed, and long trains of material and supplies are taken out  each morning with the passenger  coaches. The rails now. ex-tend  ten miles beyond Keremeos. where  there are several large bridges,  which are retarding tracklaying.  A large'force is employed, however, and tbe terminus will soon  be at Hedley.'  The;  town   pf   Keremeos   has  been practically rebuilt, the new  business center  being   near   the  railway station.    This  is over a  mile from the old   town, which is  gradually removing  to  the new  site     The vtowir<;is,;��upj��or ted .;,b#���  mining'and ranches, in   addition  to the railway.    Near by  is  tbe  Nickel Plate mine, where a good-!  sized force  is  employed.    Development has also been resumed on  the   A|>ex   group,   at   one  time  worked by the B. C.   Copper Co,,  and on numerous prospects.  Leaving Keremeos, there are  stage connections to Hedley and  Penticton, the former daily, the  latter running on alternate days.  At this season there are most  beautiful drives, and it seems  almost a pity that lliey .will so  soon be a thing of the pa si1, replaced by the railroad  Arriving at Penticton, the  Greenwoodile noticed that many  changes had taken place. The  town has grown considerably of  late, a number of new business  firms and a new hotel having  been added. Tbe majority of the  fruit ranches along Okanagan  lake are prospering, although the  unusual cold last winter caused  the loss of many trees on a number of ranches. More fruit land  is being brought under irrigation  annually in this district, and a  large acreage of new orchard is  being planted each year.  The passenger now leaves Pen-,  ticton on the beautiful steamer  Okanagan, built a short time ago  at Vernon, and the trip up tbe  lake is made in five hours to Vernon, whence a few hours' rail  journey connects with ithe main  line of the Canadian Pacific.  Thus is travel in this one-time  district of stage roads and trails  being changed to the ease and  comfort of the modern parlor car.  No. 46  GODSPEED  On August 4, 1794, tbe  Jlock of  Gibraltar was captured by Great Britain, and it has remained  im her possession from that day to this.   Among  ���die many possessions scattered all over  the globe that are comprised  in die  British   empire  today,   there is none  that die nation hqlds with greater tenacity  for  reasons both  of sentiment  and of material interest, and none that  it   wtluId   lose   with  more poignant  shame or sorrow, thin the  redoubtable stronghold we took from Spain at  the heginning of the'reign of Queen  'Anne. -    '' ���'   f    ���  The fact that throughout  the eighteenth"   century, when  so many conquests in both   hemispheres  changed  handsbackward and forward in suceess-  I iye treaties, Gibraltar remained permanently  in  the  keeping   of   England  might seem to prove- that  the   British  sentiment with regard  to it was from  the first the same as tt is today.    But  this is far from having been the case.  For, although at the'erid of two hundred  years of our possession of *he  fortress, at a. time when the  imperial  instinct  of' Englishmen   has become  more consciously developed and more  deeply ingrained than ever before, and  at the same time more4 intelligently an-'  preciarive of the true [meaning of sea  power and alive to the stragetical requirements of   lis  maintenance, the  retention of the keyfdf the Mediterranean has become an essential article  of our political creed,   it  was a considerable   time before the immense  value of the acquisition was fully realized by the British statesmen.  It seems strange enough to us to remember that King George I and his  ministers we're ready to give up  Gib  WILL RESpE  OPERATIONS  . With the departure of Dr. and Mrs.  S. S'.! Oppenheimer and their little  boy /or Spokane, last Saturday, another link with the early days of Greenwood is gortey and as the' doctor had  been here in r continual practice for  eleven years; and Mrs, Oppenheimer,  who .was'Miss Dolly Fisher, had lived  here sine*; 1897, Greenwood has lost  two more nf-' the old timers who will  be very generally missed.  The doctor came here in 1898, and  for a ^year practiced alone.  Greenwood  was  in its hey-day of  prosperity' and   the   country flocked  with miners and prospectors.    There  was only a small 'hospital,   conducted  by Dr. Jakes, the:' pioneer  doctor of  the district,,who had ministered to the  medical tihihts of the whole  district,  from Penticton to Marcus, for several  years   ajtine,    when    only   scattered  camps jpxisjfcd.'. and whose self-denying services in   those  early days will  I never be forgbtteirby those who knew  bim.    In 1899 Drs.   Jakes  and Oppenheimer ^formed a partnership, and  enlarged  the^hospital,   making  it in  every way efficient   and sufficient for  the  needs  of the community.    The  two doctors^uifciup" a large practice,  and untilDr JakW left  in  1902 for  San Francisco, the partnership lasted.  Since   then   Dr.* Oppenheimer   has  practiced alone, and in all the eleven  years  he  has  resided in Greenwood  has attended most strictly to the relief  of his many patients.  The doctor-is a graduate of McGill universftyjl and a son of Isaac  Oppenheimer, Vnbvv iii Germany, and  die nephew of .David Oppenheimer,  for some time mayor of Vancouver.  Before leaving, the doctor was the  j    The   British  Columbia Copper  company \k malting the necessary  preparations to resume operations  at the Mother Lode mine  and at  the smelter at  Greenwood  in tbe  next few days.    Coke has started  to arrive at the rate of 100 to "200  tons per day, and as soon as 2,OQ&  tons are on  hand the   furnaces  will be blowu in.    The company  employs in all about  400  men at  their various mines in the Boundary country and   in   the  smelter.  They are the owners of the Mother Lode mine, near town, the Qco  Denoro and Emma mines in 'Summit camp, the Athelstan-Jackpot  group in   Wellington camp,   the  Lone star and Washington mines  near Danville, aud the  Napoleon  mine at Boyds, Wash.   This company bas been closed down   since  the f��fh of May.    The close down  was caused by   the strike  in   the  coal   fieida,   and   the  consequent  shortage of coke.  LABOR TROUBLES  IN ENGLAND  KNIGHTS  OF PYTHIAS  The Miners' Confederation   of  Great Britain, after a   prolonged  meeting, bas decided in favor   of  balloting its million members  as  to whether or not a national strike  shall be declared in   support    of  the Scottish miners,  who are  resisting a wage reduction   of   sixpence a day.-    The ballot will not  be  completed  before  July  27lb,  and   the  executive  committee of  the  confederation   will meet,  on  July 25th  to take   action  on the  result. The present feeling seems  to be in favor of the  stoppage of  all   mines,    a   condition     wlri< h  would entail practically the complete paralyzitionof British   industry.     In view of   the  consequent  expected  shortage   in   the  coal supply, many factories  have  already served notice to their employees on the termination of contracts.  BRITAIN WILL HELP  raltar merely to secure Spain's good recipient of a .farewell address from  will in the shuffle of territories effected the members of the Greenwood Min  by the treaty -of UJtrecht,   but it is  still more extraordinary that so clear  sighted ami patriotic atr-cmnire-build . -wad-wkh- hci^paxeots.-amf-an- elder  er as Lord Chatham himself should  have made a similar offer as an inducement to Spain to help us recover  Minorca. Happily the? Spaniards-  were as blind as ourselves to the supreme importance of the position,  commanding the road from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean.  Of this blindness to the true principles of maritime policy the taking of  Gibraltar  and  its  history during the  following three-quarters of a century  afforded a  striking, illustration.    Just  as the vast importance of its. > acquisition was at the time: -underrated  ooth  by'England and Spain,  so its actual  capture by the  former was  an afterthought and (it may almost be said)  an   accident.    It   became  a   British  possession   in   the   first   instance at  a time when we  happened   to be at  war with one of the rival claimants in  the, Mediterranean.    The admiral of  the British fleet happened to have no  particular object in view, and, having;  failed  in  his  only enterprise of that  year  was  unwilling  to return home  with a Hue fleet that  had  done nothing for the honor of the flag.    So he  thought he might as well make an attack ' on   Gibraltar   as anything else.  Nevertheless,  his  action   has to be  reckoned'among- the notable     deeds  that-won* the  empire," and  one that  on its bicentenary deserved to be held  in remembrance.  ers' union.

In a mining town, where those who  come prepare to leave (after having  made a fortune), we get used to seeing the old timers depart year after  year for far away green fields, and,  though new people come in to take  their places, it is always sad to see  those; whose lives have been part of  the life of the town, leave after so  long a sojourn, and the Dr. and Mrs.  Oppenheimor carry with them the  good wishes of their many friends  here to their new home in Spokane,  in which the Times heartily joins.

Now that the Shah   has  abdicated,  the   British   government   will   watch  with interest the  efforts  of the  Nationalists to establish a strong government at   Teheran,   and   may   be depended upon to   do  everything in its  power to bring about the long-hoped-  for change.    It has been  evident for  months that so long as  the  Shah and  his reactionary advisors retained a vestige   of power the   Persian   problem  could not be solved     Now   that they  are out of the  way, it is believed that  a council  of able  men,   carrying on  the government under a regency, can  restore  the  prestige  of the   country  and maintain  the  order  which is so  important to  the   interests  of Great  Britain,    it is   probable  that as soon  as the regular government  takes control the long-promised Anglo-Russian  loan will be forthcoming,   as  the first  step toward   the  regeneration   of the  country.    The ex-Shah, Mohammed  Ali, probably   will  depart  shortly for  Russia.     It is believed that the queen  is desirous of accompanying tlie former shah,   taking   vvith   her the crown  prince, who is newly proclaimed shah.  ROV/E-H33J3  M.

Next winter yon can g-et ice for yourself, but now you must phone B51 tor it.  Light soldiers are dead, il are  dying and 115 are in a serious condition as the result of a terrific heat wave  which has swept over Japan during  the past few days. Public .sentiment  is aroused over the action of the military authorities in compelling the men  to drill in the sweltering heat, the  theory being that it would condition  them," and a court martial has been  demanded.  The heat has been intense in central Japan. Men and cattle have been  overcome and there have   been many  deaths among civilians throughout the  empire.  Public indignation is heightened by  the fact that this is not the nrst time  deaths have occurred in the armv as  the result of what is considered needless exposure. A number of private  soldiers were killed by the cold last  winter when they were ordered into  the field for a forced march through  the mountains. $1S  v-:      ��p.

Perhaps not in actual  cash, but there is a corral, its  equivalent, behind tbe Palace  livery stable, wherein straurjg  beasts may be driven and held,  until their careless owner���digs.  Is tbis cnrral ever used for the  purpose? We can answer that  oue. too. Some-years ago, when  hus<js, cows ami pigs were roam-  iug tlie valley at random, ��s they  do uow, dervLroyiug the grteu foliage on many r��ri uusold lot, dis-  turbinjf lh<* olil.iclury sr-nse by  ���lay ami Hit* auiicular l>v night, a  happy dn-.-iiri'T woK'h. |{e lisl-  teiieil lo the lowing callle, their  jingle lie 11*, clitnj; in �� within a few  feel of lie, upon window, to the  oeca-.ior.al ���.���runt nf n grimy  por'uer with s'|iiealing family,  .'mil ihe Halter nf hnrse.s' hoofs  on Hie opposite sidewalk, complete I his bliss.  For some weary eons he tri<d  to forget ihe'-e evidences of pleasant country life, tried to realize  that be was living in a city, with  a real live mayor and corporation  who enforce pound regulations,  and he thought that if he ignored tbe realities and counted  10,000 imaginary sheep going  over, or under, or through an imaginary fence he might go back  to that innocent, happy dream.  But no���every t ffort was futile,  and in rage and despair he  dressed (somewhat briefly), and  armed with a chunk of cordwood,  he drove the whole rrr-b of noise  makers into the pound��� and the  owner dug, the city made some  easy money, and rest came at las'  to the awakened.  The moral is plain: Nightly  Greenwood'-J   slumbers    are   dis  turbed, the town is more noisv  after dark than during the livelong day. Pigs with their numerous small offspring roam about,  cows discourse music at intervals  of various duration, and dogs,  well! They stay on their own  premises, it is true, or within the  fenced or unfenced premises of  their owners, but their shrill  moanings and yap-yaps travel  like the Marconi vibrations, in all  directions, piercing tbe dew-laden  air with snap and snarl, and no  one not a confirmed invalid or  cripple could resist the invitation  to go out and .pound. But what?  One may not run a dog into the  pound if his owner has parted  with the two dollars tax, and  stones, at night, oftener break  windows than dog's backs, and  the bark, the distressing part of  the nuisance, refuses to be em-  pounded.  But the pound would he'p out  with tbe cattle, and then, perhaps, tbe wakeful canine might  desist. Perhaps he, too, like the  dreamer, resents being disturbed,  and is trying to get back at the  cattle.    Who knows!  Oae ot the largest land deals  reported for some time has taken  place in the Nicola Valley, where  a Vmicoiiver company has purchased 5.000 acres.

LEARN TO SWIM  Drowniug accidents are of such  frequent occurance this summer,  almost every paper containing  accounts of such, that it is appalling to think bow many people-  of both sexes are unable to swim.  From tbe coast this week comes  the sad news of five young girls  being drowned at Aliceville, on  Burrard Iulei, while bathing at  a picnic. Swimtuing is so easy to  learn, especially in Ihe elope  proximity of a f��.ir nzed sheet nf  water, thai il is surprising anyone who really enjoys the water  will uot take tlie trouble to enjoy  it to the full. A dive and a swim  these warm summer days is such  a real delight, and a venture in  water too deep without a knowledge of swimming, so often the  prelude to a golden harpor otherwise, that the art of swimming  should appeal, and the many daily  recorded drownings be a warning  to these bathers.

Good housewives consider cleanliness and purity first <*j all; that's why  Quaker Oats is their choice among all  oatmeals. In making Quaker Oats the  grain is sifted and resifted, passing  through more than fifty processes of  cleaning before it is cooked and rolled.  If you took a handful of oats and  scrubbed and polished and wiped each  separate grain, it wouldn't then be  nearly as clean as Quaker Oats. No  human hand ever touches a single  grain of Quaker Oats from tlie field  to your kitchen. The best advice on  foods you could have is: Eat Quaker  Oats every morning for breakfast.  You'll find Quaker Oats put up in  two size packages, the regular size and  the large, family size for those ��� who .  are not convenient to the store. The  large, package contains a piece of  handsome china for the table. Quaker  Oats is one of Canada's greatest products.  MINING CLAIM FOR SALE  HANDBOOK.  (New Kdition   issued March, 1908.)

He wondered if.  aside from natural magnetic qualities,  this liking had not been due first of  all to the curious resemblnnce between  the young minister and the absent son  whom David Stires was disinheriting,  l for as far as mold of feature went the  young minister and the ne'er-do-well  might have been twin brothers.

He is your son!"  "In the eyes of tho law, yes. But  uot otherwise!" His voice rose. "What  has he done to deserve anything from  me? What has he bad all his life but  kindness? And how has he repaid it?  By being a waster and u prodigal. By  setting me in contempt and finally by  forsaking me in my old age for, his  own paths of ribaldry."  The girl shook her bead. "You don't  know where he Is now or what be is  doing. Oh, he was wild and reckless, 1  have no doubt, but when be quarreled  and left you wasn't it perhaps because  he was too quick tempered? And if he  hasn't come back Isn't it perhaps because he Is too proud?"      .  "Jessica, I've not forgiven him seven  times. I've forgiven him seventy times  seven. But he doesn't want forgiveness. To bim I am only "the old man'  wbo refused to 'put up' longer for his  fopperies and extravagances! When he  left this house sis months ago he declared he would never enter it again.  Very well; let him stay away!

The girl, still kneeling, turned half  about with a hopeless gesture. "Oh,  won't you help me?" she said. She  spoke more toherself, it seemed, than  to either of tbe men who waited.  "Sanderson." said the old man with  bitter fierceness, lifting his band/ "1  dare say you think 1 am,bard, but 1  tell you there has never "been a day  since Hugh was born when I wouldn't  Save laid down my life for him! You  are so like! When I look at you I seem  to see him as he might have been but  for his own wayward choice! If he  were only as like you in other things  as he is In feature!

Yet you, an orphan, come out a divinity Btudent, and Hugh���my sou!���comes  out a roisterer with gambling debts, a  member of the 'fast set." one of a dissolute fraternity known as 'The Saints,'  whose very existence, no doubt, was a  shame to the institution!"  Harry Sanderson turned slowly to  tbe light. A strange pauorama in that  moment had fiashed through his brain  ���kaleidoscopic pictures of an early  reckless era when he lind not been  known as the "Rev.' Henry Sanderson.1'  "1 think I ought, to say that. I was  the founder, and at the'time you.speak  of,the abbot of The Sulnts. 1 was In the  same year with Hugh. -We sowed our  wild oats together, a tidy crop. I fancy,  for us both.

But then I was  all you called him--a waster and a  prodigal. And I was more, for while  others followed. I led. At college 1  was known as 'Satan Sanderson."'  "It Is the Hugh of the present that  I am dealing with," said the old man.  For David Stires was just and he was  feeling a grim respect for Harry's'  honesty.

Yet Hugh bad beer,  one of bis own "fast set." Tbey had  called him "Satan's shadow." a tribute  to the actual resemblance as well as  to tbe palpable Imitation he affected.  Harry shivered a little. The situation  seemed., in antic Irony; to be revolts  ing itself. It was as if- not alone'  Hugh, but be. Harry Sauderson, in the  person of that past of his, was now  brought to bar for judgment in thai  room. For the instant he forgot how  utterly characterless Hugh bad shown  himself of old. how devoid of all de  sire for rehabilitation his present rep  utatlon In the town argued him. At  that moment it seemed as if in saving  Hugh from this condemnation, he was  pleading for himself as he had been,  fol- the further chance which be. but  for circumstances, perhaps, had needed  too.  "You," be said, "have lived a life of  just and balanced action. It is bred  In the boue. You hate all loose con-  duet, and rightly. You hate it most.in  Hugh for the simple reason that he is  your son. The very relation makes it  more impossible tp countenance. He  should be like you���of temperate and  prudent habit But did you and he  start on equal terms? Your grandfather was a Standish; your ancestry  was undiluted Puritan. Did' Hugh  have alt your fund of resistance? With  me it was the turning oi* a long lane.  Hugh perhaps has uot turned���yet."  A breath of that past life had swept  anew over Harry, the old shuddering  recoil again had rushed upon him. It  gave his voice a curious energy as he  ended: "And I have seen bow far a  niaa may go and yet���come back!"  There was a pause. The judge had  an inspiration. He folded the parchment.  "Perhaps it would be as well," be  said in a matter of fact way, "if the  signing be left open for the present."  He rose as he spoke and laid.the document on the table.  For a moment David Stires sat in  Bileuce. Then he said, with a glint of  the old ironic fire: "You should have  been a special pleader, Sanderson.  There's no client.too bad for them to  make out a case for! Well���well, we  won't sign tonight. I will read it  over again when I am more equal to  it"  For long the old man sat alone, musing in bis chair. At length he sighed  and took up a magazine. He was  thinking of Harry Sanderson. .
