Mallandaine, occupied the chair. The  report of the delegates to the Associated  Boards Convention at Trail was read  and listened to with great interest. A  vote of thanks was accorded the delegates for the good work they accomplished there.   .  The president pointed out that the local Board would haye to be duly registered according to statute, and pay a fee  of five dollars to the Government, and  that the president and vice-president  would have to take the oath of office.  Mr. Percy B. Fowler,, secretary, was  empowered, by vote of the members, to  sign all cheques and conduct any business of the Association with the Canadian Bank of Commerce.  Several resolutions  that were   sub-, ���������*���������--~  mitted by the Associated Boards (and.enfc working expenses  was  to hold a  my and efficiency filled the bill there.  He said that an athletic union was about  to be formed in town and the young  men, he felt sure, would consider the  establishment of of a fire brigade as part  of the gymnastic program.  Mr. J; J. Atherton mentioned that a  dramatic club had been formed in town,  and that the main idea was to raise by  its efforts moneys for the advancement  of any worthy object that presented itself. It had been forcibly presented to  them that a very urgent need was the  purchase of hose, and it was proposed by  the club ������0 put on a performance at the j  Opera House, in about two months, and  the surplus was to be donated to the  Board of Trade for the purpose mentioned.   -    ,- ������������������ . -  Some very good speeches were Heard  from Messrs Mallandaine, Kiel, Bevan,  Ofceil, Northey, and Fowler. Tho president, in the course of his remarks stated  that he thought a good way for the Board  of Trade to raise funds to meet the pres  also left to the executive.

All were endorsed with the  exception of one praying for the construction of a railway between Proctor  and Kootenay Landing. The meeting  resolved, after ��������� considerable discussion,  to let the matter rest until further particulars were known.  ;/:���������������;,.The matter of fire profceotion then  come up,  and the  president  made a  ��������� speech in which it was forcibly pointed  ���������   out that Crestou needed hose and hydrants,  At present, he snid, the finances  ��������� oi the Association were very low, bnt  - the pressing need of fire protection would  havo to bo Bciuaroly faced, and ho invited  disousBlon on the matter.  Mr. O. R. Northey gavo his experience  in starting a flro brigado at Cainborne,  in the Lardeau country, that for ooono-  grand Ball after Easter, and make it the  event of the seas jn. This was agreed  to and left to a committee to arrange  the details.  A communication was read from J.  D. Anderson, in which he offered to  supply the.latest map of the district  that he was having lithographed. He  suggested that 500 copies of this new-  map should be purchased by those who  needed them in their business, and that  thoy should pay their pro rata share of  $100. After discussion this was left to  the exeontive committee, as was also an  advertising scheme of an Eastern house,  The matter of defraying the cost of  the expenses borne by tho delegates to  the Trail Convention was brought up,  and it was pleasing to note that the  member * present wero unanimous that  their expenses should be paid.

BOX 24  CRESTON, B.C.  On Monday last the editor and his  staff greatly enjoyed a visit paid to them  by Mr. R, W. Northey, who came  in  from Eeremeos, Similkameen, to visit  I his son, Bert, of this town. Both father  and son are printers and old newspaper;  proprietors, and it was'.-iifeeTa.breese of  glory for us to entertain them and turn  the wheels for their edification.    Northey major put in the first newspaper  (the Kootenay Star) at Bevelstoke in  1890, and for several years was permitted by the populace to continue the jig  unmolested,   Bnt Northey major was a  philosopher, and over the nom-de-plume  of " Diogenes "   he each week printed  some gossip that did not please the sinning element.    Result:   A libel suit.  He survived this and started a paper in  RosBland, where he dispensed oxygen  through the boom days by the aid of a  Washington and a pot of glue.   Ho accumulated enough wealth at the golden city to take   fast freight back to  Bevelstoke and smile, at his trnducera.  Besides being a printer of the Al-cop-.  per-bottomed-registered-at-Lloyds class,  he was also a prospeotor and miner, and  when he found the money burning a  hole in his pocket, and the ground  under his, feet too smooth, he hit for  the tall spots and applied his accrued  knowledge of geology, topography and  mineralogy to tho tost that makes or  breaks.   Ho is still a mining man���������and  that is not written satirical.    In the  Lnrdoau he has Grown-granted olaimB  of great merit which tho writer has 'yie-^l  itod, and in tho Similkameeu ho has  gold-ooppor  properties   whtoh   should  make him a  multi-millionaire   boforo  ho passes In his ohecks.  ( Communicated)  Thanks to the  energetic rustling .of  Mr.  J. MoLeod, ably ..assisted by the  other   members of   the entertainment  Committee, the Knights of Pythias' At  Home and Banquet, held on Tuesday,  the 16 th inst.,   turned out to be the  event of the season, and will lopg'be  remembered by those  participating in  the affair as a very pleasant memento  of Wild Rose lodge, Ko.  29.     At 8.80  that   evening   the "Lodge   room, over  Speer's store, had been.very tastefully  decorated, and filled with eleven card J  tables for the  Whist Tournament, and  Mr. and    Mrs. Mallandaine   duly in  waiting as host and hostess to receive  the guests.    Before nine o'clock there  were over fifty ladies and gentlemen in  the hall, and the whist tournament was  started.      While this was in progress  excitement  ran very high, as to who  would win, and after eight games had  been played,, the tournament was closed  aud the points totaled up.   The result  showed that Mr. S. A. Speers had won  the first prize of a lacquered ink-stand  with a score of 85.     Messrs. Bevan,  Gobbett   and    Arrowsmith   tied   for  the gent's booby prize, and on the cut  Mr. W. Arrowsmith won out, and thus  obtained the prize, of a bottle of soothing syrup.   Mrs. R. S. Bevan won the  ladies first prize of a cut glass dish with  a score of 84, and Miss E. Leamy won  the booby, consisting of a very elegant  baby rattle, with a score of 72.   These  results having been announced and the  prizes duly awarded a short programme  was rendered, and the banquet wa3 then  announced, and the ladies at once made  a  rush for their  rubbers' and wraps.  On arrival at the Creston Hotel what a  sight met the eyes when the banquet  hall door was opened.   It was a magnificent sight and held everyone speechless  for a few moments, but this lost speech  W^s soon regained   and  an animated  chatter could be heard as thegue'sts took  their respective sea^, which'had been  marked previously, so as to prevent confusion.      When everyone was seated,  the   Chancellor   Commander,    rising,  proposed the toast of "The King," and  "God Save the King" was sung and  washed down with a glass of Mr. G.  Mead's splendid claret punch.     As soon  as everybody was  again seated there  was a rush from the region of the kitchen, and the banquet started with a plate  of  raw   Eastern   oysters.     Although  some of the ladies did not care for this  dish, fchey fortunately hud gentlemen  eacortB sitting next them, and it was  noticed in the majority of coses that  tho   oysters   had   disappeared.    Next  came a plate of the finest chicken soup  and Manitoba white fish that the guests  had tasted for many a long day, and  thoso also disappeared in a surprisingly  short space of time.   Next oomo, well,  tho turkey, and all that can be sold of  that is that tho guests thought it was!  par excellence, although it was noticed  that a few had tampered with the  salads to the detriment ot ihe turkey.  Some of the gentlemen were at this  time noticed to be loosening their vests,  but the good things had not finished  coming, for in came hot mince pie and  plum pudding, and it certainly was the  real thing.   After these had been duly  ['the .piouo. xne nnai toast of the oven*  ing was the one of "The Universal Order of the Enightsof Pythias," and  was drunk with great satisfaction. Mr.  3. A. Speers was called on to reply, but  again he was scared although he pleaded  the lateness of the hour. Mr. G. A. M.  Young was- then called on to give his  "First Impressions," but very neatly  demolished nobody conld eat any more, I turned the tables on the Chancellor  well, except one gentleman4but it has | Commander by remarking that he had  been whispered around that he holds [been sworn to secrecy and therefore  the record at some sort of a Mulligan I could not speak. As it was then almost  club, so he iR mathoWo * three a.m., and the ladies were getting  tired, the C. C. very reluctantly arose  and announced the closing of the even  club, so he is excusable  Speech making was now the order of  the evening, and to sturt ths tongues  wagging, the Chancellor   Commander  arose, and in a few well-chosen words  welcomed everyone to the whole evening's entertainment, and hoped that it.  would by no means be the last of the  kind.   He then briefly touched on the  advancement of the local lodge; on the  ladies, and   on the principles   of the  order; and then proposed the toast of  "The Visitors" which was duly drunk.  The Vice-Ghaneellor, Mr. J. McLeod,  was then called on, and arising, welcomed the   visitors on behalf   of the  lodge, hoped they had and would enjoy  themselves, and bade them make the  most of a very pleasant evening.   Dr.  G-. B. Henderson was then called on to  reply for the visitors, and he certainly  did it, as only he can, and with the  addition of a couple of storie3 illustrating his position as a visitor, concluded  a very neat speech.   The guests were  then treated to a very fine pianoforte  selection by Mrs. Bevan, entitled "Meditation."      The    speechmaking    was  again taken up and the toast to "The  Ladies" was drunk  with very   great  appreciation.   Mr. N. E. Read was then  called upon to speak on the Ladies, and,  as he has had considerable experience  in this line, he made a very able speech.  Although   denying   much   experience,  several cries   of   "Circumstantial evidence" were heard, so there must have  been a mistake   somewhere.    Messrs.  S. A. Speers and B. S.   Bevan were  then called on to reply for the ladies,  but the first named gentleman informed  the guests that he had nothing to say  and would leave it to Mr. Bevan, but it  was rumored that he was scared his  wife might get after him, so he preferred not to speak.   Mr. Bevan then  arose, and, in  his   own special way,  handled this- very difficult subject to  the entire . satisfaction   of the ladies.  Next, Mr. N. E. Road gave another  piece of   circumstantial   evidence   by  singing "Annie   Laurie," which was  very much   appreciated.    Then' came  the toaBt of "Creston, Past and Future,"  and Mr. Mallandaine in reply gave a  brief but very pithy history of-tho birth  and progress of our little town from  its inception in '90 to the present, and  held but glowing prospects for tho future    Mr. G. A. M. Young then gavo  avory fine medley of Scotch music on  ings entertainment and the proceedings  .vers formally brought- to ar* end Sk" the  singing of "God Save the Sing."  Great credit is due Mr. G. Mead for  the splendid repast; provided and also  to his helpers for the energetic manner  iu which it was served, and 'the affair  will long be remembered by the K, JiVs  as one of the happiest evenings in  their lives.  t>.  At Home and filissicale  The ladies of the English Church beg  to announce that they will hold an At  Home and Musicale at the residence  of Mrs. J..' Darbyshire from 3 to 6 p.m.  on Saturday, Feb. 27th, iu aid of the  Church funds. Everyone is cordially  invited to attend. Donations will be  received   of not less than   ten cents.  P. F. Johnston/president of the Moyie District Licensed Vintners, and propria tor of the  Moyie Hotel, Moyie, arrived in towns yesterr  day.  From London in the smoke comes a  good story told by Bob Fitzsimmons in  reference to the taking on of- all comers  by Jack Johnson, if he wishes to retain  the heavy-weight championship. Fitz  says that Jonnson has stuck his ebony  back up now he is the "big noise" and  that he will meet no more white-men���������  in other words, he draws "de coloh line.'  Fitz says what is sauce for the goose,  should be sauce for the gander, and  there are many who will agree with him,  ���������''"���������But,  "; "-'".

"With  the exception of some opposition that  arose from people who are interested in  the townsite of Proctor, the resolution  of our local  Board was unanimously  adopted.   The parties who half-heartedly opposed the adoption of the resolution  are firmly imbued with tho idea that  the only solution to tho reclaiming of  thii vast tract of land is to be found in  ....ihe widening.of the narrows, and so  i'rom selfish motives thoy conserve their  own interests.   It is not for the Creston  Hoard of Trade to offer any suggestions  bis to how the  territory  under notice  should be reclaimed.   It is tho prevailing idea that the Government should  obtain the host engineer for the purpose  of Bolviug  the problem,  and that he  should be given ample time to make his  deductions,   because   if there  is  any  nhanco of redeeming this vast waste,  nothing but olose observance of the tides  iiud concomitant circumstances will bo  of any uso.

'Twas because they were not posted  And they went to Hades and roasted,  When they might have goue to Paradise and pastured with tho sheep.

Whether it was in response to this suggestion or not is not  known, but sure enough in about three  days a little brother arrived, an eight-  pounder,   and to  all other eyes than  Bobby's  a rather   perfect    specimen.

Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor for the  enjoyment of repose.   The early springs are  verj' favorable for gardening' and budding  fruit tree.    The  antuinns  are  very  long  and the weather is of an ideal Indian summer.    Violets and wild strawberries bloom  as late as November.  ft  Soil  The soil is an alluvial clay on a clay subsoil. This does uot apply, hqv^eyerj to the  entire valley, as the lower bench lands pre 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.  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 and Chapleau, 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'inar-  kets in shorter time and better in condition  than can be done by any other district.  tans  Crestou 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 and express passes through here at rs.i p.m.  therefore allowing berries, and fruits ��������� to be  picked in the forenoon and shipped in a re-  frigei ator car with no further handling of  fruit until the markets are reached. The  G, N. rims trains into Creston. The railroads pass through the Creston Valley, and  fruit may be loaded at eignt points along  the line.  /Htotstiire  Moisture is plentiful, as at rains every  mouth and is sufficient for bountiful crops of  every description. *   .  fibvobucte  The famous strawberry fields of Creston  have-^outclassed every district in British  Columbia this, year for production, quality  and prices. ' In addition to this we raise hay  and all kinds oi vegetables, apples, peaches,  pears, plums, cherries, uectariues and grapes  as well as all the smaller bush fruits, which  grow in abundance  nmutmnttttrmntmimim  WRITE FOR ANY  INFORMATION  regress  The progress of the Fruit  Growing Industry of the district has been  very rapidi':  Five years ago there  was   150  fruit  trees  shipped to the Creston district, while in the  spring, of  1908 about  4S,ooo were received  at this point.   There were also several hundred thousands  of strawberry  plauts  and  berry bushes shipped iu.    We have a rural  telephone  system,   which will  shortly  be  connected with Nelson  and Cranbrook,  it  being, already counecteel with Spokane.     A  system for waterworks and also for generating electric power has   been  installed at  Goat River Falls.    Electricity will also aid  in opening up some of our large mines.
