Quaife  sent to the firm of Bechtler's Ltd.,  Waterloo, Out., about 480 lbs. of Creston  clay, which he believed was a fair sample of suitable for brick making. There  is an unlimited quantity of this clay at  the disposal of Mr. Quaife, and it goes  ���������without saying that if the constituents  are such that will warrant his exploit  ing the reserves at his disposal, that hejschoolhouse, Sirdar, every Wednesday  vices Next Sunday.

Cloy & Shnmonds, of Calgary,  .the well-known frriit importers, to ex^  clusively market Creston produce. The  matter has evidently boon very carefully  gone into by the individual members, aB  in the debate that followed there was a  keen knowledge of the subject displayed.  At the conclusion of the arguments :t  was resolved thnt tho coming season's  fruit should be handled by the firm men  tibnod.      i.

Joe Wilson, our esteemed provincial  constable, celebrated the eleventh anniversary of. his association  with the  Law and Order Department of British  Columbia, on Wednesday.    Before ho  joined the force he. served five years in  the Northwest mounted police, where  he gained considerable experience. ' He  has been located at Creston for 10 years  during which time he'has held down the  positions of Government Agent, Mining  Recorder, Justice of tho Peace, general  factotum', and Supreme Bureau of Information.    It is a pleasure to record  the anniversary of such a man as Joe  Wilson.. He is absolutely the only man  in the country we know of that could  fill such a position.   Wo do not thiuk he  has an enemy in the country (Note:  The Boss is trying to square himself���������  Signed:    Devic).   We hope Joe will  long remain in Oreston aB the Ountodian  ot tho Peace, and in this wo bnt echo  the sentiment of tho citizens.  Clearing    The  Townsfge  TWENTY ACRES TO BE SLASHED  AND BURNED TO IMPROVE <V  ,   PRESENT TOWNSITE.     .  J. S. Dennis, assistant to the 2nd Vice-  President of the O. P. R., Who is also  B.O. Land Commissioner, passed through  Oreston on Saturday last, accompanied  by R. B. Bennett, K.O., the Company's  solicitor, B. G: Hamilton, chief clerk,  and also E. Mallandaine, chief timber  ranger. Mr. Dennis was greatly pleased  to see the strides Oreston is making, and  after a brief interview with F. G. Lottie,  issued instructions that that part of ^ the  .townsite lying to the-north-*east,.ibe3&������i  mediately slashed and burned to obviate  danger f oom fire, and make the general  aspect of the townsite look more desirable.  On Tuesday last, Mr. F. G-. Little had  a large number of men at work on the  townsite clearing the land; under notice:  The land lies to the north of Third  street, and it comprises about 20 acres,  more or less, that will shortly be placed  on the market.  We also understand that the O. P. R.  arc' about to send out several exploring  parties. Mr. Mallandaine has the do  tails of this in hand. Positions on the  party have been fbuhd for "Metfsrsi L.  St. Olair, O. Payette, O. O. French, and  W. Noble, all of Oreston.  Civilian- Rifle Association  Great interest is being displayed in  the program of the Erickscs-Creston  Gun.-Olub for the coming season, and  to arrange .some scheme whereby the  interest of the members would be unflagging throughout the summer, they  were called, together on Monday, night  at the Mercantile block. Captain G.  Oartwrighfc was in the chair.    There  ., mu >> i wi.jr guuu Obuouunuvjo iu tusiuuua,  It was pointed but that the annual  shoot of the Provincial Association  would be held in Nelson some time in  August, and it was put to the members  whether or no ten men from this club  would represent us at that meeting.  This was agreed upon unanimously,  It was resolved that the club hoid a  series of spoon competitions, beginning  as soon as possible in April after the  ammunition arrives, and the dates of  the competitions will be left to the committee appointed. There will be two  spoon competitions in April, two in May  two in June and one in July. Fjrom  that time out another competition will  be started with the object of securing  the' averages of the best twenty shots  and these will again proceed to another  series, from which will emerge the best  ten shots of the association who will be  selected 4o uphold the honor of the  Oreston district. The actual selection  of the ten men to represent the district  will be left to the committee.  It was also pointed out that if any of  the members desired to purchase the  new Boss service weapon, they could do  so at a cost to themselves of $25 only.  The committee was appointed as follows: Messrs. J. Stocks, Gr. Oartwright  J. Hyde, R. 6'B. FitzOerald, and Capt.  A.. -S. FitzGerald. This committee was  also authorised to select another site for  a range, as the lease upon the ranch of  ���������Msr. ;Fi Putnam^ stibrfly exiflws, and the  portion of the land covered by the range  will shortly be planted to trees byfche  above rancher. _ The committee will  report at a future date that was left to  the call of the chair.  Turkey shoots will also be held  occasionally on oft! days.  St. Patrick^ Concert  ���������v  Lireston  ^Manufacturingr-Co. Ltd.  fli  EMM  of  Complete    Stock  ROUGH and  DRESSED  LUMBER  A. Coulter, of Dryden, Ont., who is  now here looking after the interests of  Swan S.wansen, was piloted over a large  block of land, owned by O. O. Rodgers,  in Lot 812, this week. It is highly probable that Mr. Coulter will purobaso 320  acres of land in Lot 812, as it is his intention to plant a 200-aoro orchard. Wo  understand that he in consideration of  purchasing the land under notioo, at a  certain price, ho on his part guarantees  to opond $.10,000 in.improvomonto, two-  thirds of whiori will be disbursed this  year if the deal goes through, whioh is  very probable. Mr. Coulter has rocontly  sold out of a mercantile basinoos at Dry.  don, and ho is sizing up tho town with  a view of locating here in somebualness^  A public mooting of the Oreston Ath-  lotio .Club will bo hoid uoxt Tuesday  evening at 8.80 in tho Morcautilo Hall.-  All intprottod in tho starting of samo  orb' invltod to bo prosont.  Protect your wife and family or your  mother by taking out a life insurance  policy with the Oreston Realty & Timber Oo.   Don't hesitate.  It is really disgraceful that the O.P.R.  should allow their work trains to block  up the track at the end of the principal  street of Oreston. For several days this  week the work train has stood there to  the great inconvenience of the public.  Why are the cars not disconnected so  that pedestrians can pass through? On  Wednesday evening last, the large  crowd journeying from the west side  of the traok to the Opera House Were  obliged to either clamber over the cotb  or take a walk tho length of about 40  before they could get oyer.  The promoters of .the St. Patrick's  Day concert and ehtertainment have  every reason to be proud of the. results  of their efforts on Wednesday evening  last. The Opera House was crowded to  the doors with an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. - The program submitted was a very ; good one. The  night was fine. It was St Patrick's  night and ,.,'J were Irish.'.-for the night.  The stage i. \ been very prettily decorated for the evasion. Behind the footlights were grouped hot-houso plants  that gave a very pretty appearance,  whilst flags and hunting were hung  gracefully above and around the floor  of the auditorium. At the back of the  stage was a streamer of green silk, and  upon   it were' the   words, " Eria Go  ; Of the entertainment it is generally  admitted that it was first-class. All  the items were loudly applauded. The  tableaux, ���������'Cinderella" particularly  pleased the large audience. This was  arranged in a series of six pictures, representing the evolution from the scrubbing brush period, to the time she married the prince. There waB a large number of children from the schools of Ores-  ton,. Alice Siding and Erickson in this  part of the evening's performano and  they can rest assured that they gave the  audience very great pleasure by the  exceedingly pretty pictures they formed.  The costumes for "these tableaux were  gorgeous, and special praise is due- to  all the ladies who assisted in the manufacture of the costumes, and to Miss B.  Moore, who arranged the setting and  the details. . Every picture was encored  and in several instances the audience  were not satisfied with the curtain rising less that three times.:.:,...'  The selections:'of the orchestra -were  also a great source of enjoyment and at  the same time a surprise to the audience.  Oreston is now singularly fortunate iri"  having sueh an aggregation of mnaioians.  XUOCUUOl'VD      YvO*%r     4U*tta      ava^avj |      ytw������*v;  and Messrs.

Three of the items deserving especial  mention wore the. character songs: of  Bob Fitzgerald and Archie Peraberton,  and the recitation by Mrs. McPeak  This was the first appearance of Mrs.  McPeak before the public; and she  acquitted herself with great credit. Her  recitation: "St. Patrick's Cross" was  londly apolaudad. Bob Fitzgerald gave  the audience a treat in his coster songs  Attired in the orthodox costume of an  aristooratof Seven Dials, he sang in  good voioe and true costor stylo "Our  Tyke," and for an encore gave "My Old  Dutch" and in tho choruB of the latter  many of the audience joined. ������������������ Mr. Pern,  berton was attired as a trne-to-lifo  "stage" Irishman, and as if to give the  real touch of life to tho part ho played  he carried in his hand a genuine abille-*  iagh, manufactured from, a tree now,  standing on Oollen Bawn Rook, Killar-  ney. ^ He sang "Call Again, Oalligan"  and had to give the audience Borne aaore^  before they Were satisfied.  Mesdames Fitzgerald and Corbet*yrexe  heard to .very great advantage is their  solos, and both were the recipients of  well-earned applause. Mrs. Fitzgerald  sang "Sing Me to Sleep" and Mrs Oor-  batt sang "Let Erin Remember the Days  of Old,"  Other items on the program were^a-  quartette by Messrs. Fitzgerald, Peraberton, W. J.i and J. J. Atherton, "Tho ;  Wearing of the Green." and. a one act  farce entitled "Box and Cox." In the  latter the characters were sustained by  Miss B. Moore (Mrs. Bouncer) Mr. J.  J. Atherton (Box) and Mr. R. O'B..  Fitzgerald (Cox). The kitchen scene  of the Dramatic Club was used for the  first time in this production, and that  and the general scenic effects weije favor*  ably comsae-ated upon.  It was a record house for Creston.  The promoters will hand over * about  sixty dollars clear to the pastor of tho  Catholic Ohuroh.  Fruit Land Fraud  The Armstrong Advertiser exposes  still another case of fraudulent fruit  land advertising. The' following statement is quite specific and too plain spoken, to be mistaken. The Advertiser <  says::  " The Manager, New Britain Orchards  Association, Vancouver. BO., has the  cheek to exhibit a cut of Mr. George  Paton's orchard, at Knob Hill here, in.  his advertisement in the Farmers' Ad*  vocate and Home Journal, Winnipeg,  The -manager of this concern ii deceiving the public in using the cut, especially  out of townspeople, for he says, 'Scores  of prairie farmers have purchased fruit  lands at New Britain, 45.. miles from  Vancouver, and aro now preparing an  orchard homo for themselves. Will  yon join them? Learn all about it by  writing.' The last six words��������� explain  why he uses the, cut from Armstrong;;  it is a deception of tho worst kind and  he should be called to account for it.  This is the third time within the post  two months that wo have called attention to farm scones from Armstrong  being used by ��������� unscrupulouss real estate  dealers of the coast in; bbomtaig, their.,  lands.

Or ttmlr Loot! HepreMnlMlve:  J. W. BENNETT  unsaleable article, has been indirectly  responsible for the closing of many silver-lead mines in the district we mention.  For the past five years there has been  so zsarket for zinc en this side of the  Atlantic. The zinc mines of British  Columbia have been idle because there  was no market for that commodity.  The zinc mine owners of Kansas and  Missouri were wise enough to conserve  their own interests, and in this respect  they followed the dictates of the Almighty dollar when they clamoured for  a duty on Canadian zino. There was a  reason for this: The zinc going to the  U.S. from Canada was far superior to  theirs; it was pure "black jack," averaging about 62% zino, and in this they  had the mines of Joplin and Zincite  skinned. They are the people who have  bitterly opposed the admission of Canadian zinc into the American market,  and for several years they havo been  successful. Their first yell occurred at  the tirae that Geo. Hughes shipped from  the Lucky Jim, at Sandou, about 17 cars  of Black Jack to Iola, Kansas, and as he  kept up this lick for some timo, thoro is  no wonder that tho mine owners ovor  there got busy.  But the prlnoipal mine owners on this  side of tho lino wore just as outo an  thoir "friends" in tho "show mo"  belt. Some gonius discovered that there  was no such namo in tho Dictionary of  Mineralogy as "zino." Calamine was  the nearest approach to tho metal under  mention, and no tills point was argued  before tho Board of Appraisers at Now  York two yoars ago. It appears that  calamino was an articlo upon which  thoro was no duty, bnt tho zinc minors  of Missouri and Kansas appealod against  this decision of tho Appraisers, nnd wo  suppose tho rciultas published in the  daily papers is tho result of the appeal  heard beforo the Court of Appeal. Wo  take it that zino ii calamine, nud as  ������uch, zinc will be admitted into tho  State* dnty freo.  GA  ER'S  =^J  irnei  Saddlery Store  1 Everything is the Best."    Only  One quality!

The notice suggests that for  the destruction of all scale ins sots, such  as woolly aphis, bud moth, tho eggs of  green aphis, red spider and other pests,  the No. 1 solution, viz: the liuue-sulphur-  salfc soluion. is found to be the most  effective. A bulletin, giviug particulars  of the best methods for spraying, etc.,  moy be had on application to the. chief  of provincial police, Nelson;  The notice concludes as follows:  "The necessity of Maintaining the excellent reputation of British Columbia  fruit, which ,5s rated higher than that  of any other province in the British  Empire, is of such paramount importance, that. if the owners or persons in  possession of infected and diseased  fiuife trees.further neglect to apply the  necessary measures for cleansing the  same, they will bo proceeded against  in accordance with the provisions of  the horticultural board act arid amendments thereto, and the' regulations of  the board of horticulture.

(Clfmate  The climate of the Creston district; is so  mild in winter that seldom does the mercury  touch zero, and in summer the weather is  very warm which is so beneficial for the cultivation and. coloring of friiit. Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor .for the  enjoyment of repose. The early springs are  very favorable for gardening and budding  fruit tree. The autumns are. very long  Nand the weather is of an ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild strawberries bloom  as late as November. t  Soil  The soil is an alluvial clay on-a clay sub-"  soil. This does not apply, however, to the  entire valley, as the lower bench lands .are of  a black vegetable mould, while the land in  the vicinity of Erickson is of a sandy character. Four-fifths of the entire valley is  free from stones and gravel. The land is  practically level and mostly covered with  timber. Fine Government roads are plentiful, one being thirteen miles in length. Soil  to suit any kind of vegetation may be secured in this valley.  /Iftatkets  While there is a splendid local demand  for products, the principal markets for the  Creston district are the big: centres of the  Crows' Nest Pass and all cities" as far east  as Fort William andrChapleau, and as far  north as Athabasca "Landing. We are absolutely the closest producing point to the  markets, therefore we receive higher prices  by reason of-our products reaching'.the markets in shorter time and better in condition  than can be done by any other district.  ���������X&c asportation  Creston is well favored in the matter of  transportation. The C. P. R. passenger  , trains call here twice daily, going east -and  'west..,/The eastbound passenger an& 'express .passefe through here at 12.1 p.m.  therefore allowing berries and fruits to be  picked in the forenoon and shipped in a refrigerator car wkfrno further handling of  fruit until the markets are reached. The  G. N. runs trains into Creston. The railroads pass through the Creston Valley, and  fruit may be loaded at eight points' along!  the line.

Five years ago there was  150" fruit trees  shipped to the Creston district, while in the  spring of 1908 about '48,000 were received  at this point.   There were also several hundred thousands  of strawberry ' plants and  berry bushes shipped in.'
