 Vol. XIV.  CRESTON, B. C9 FRIIX^ DECEMBER Ifc ^1923  No. 45  *������*.  Imperial Fruit-Fair  Apples Sell Well  In continuance of my previous, re  port on the Imperial   Fruit* Show,   I  w ill make, my comments on  the various exhibits ih   tlie TSriiptre' 'Classes  and the Oversea*? -Classes."  British Empire Section  The 20 box lot of Mcintosh Beds  shown by the B.C.F. Lands, Limited,  Kamloops received, ecnssnendution.  y'They were a y|ry ������5be ev>n Iut..same-  what light in color but their chief fault  was softness with consequent brtfeising 1 and every apple which was cut show-  and lost hnanv 'ir>ok������t^/*>!������^tlr!*e' score * 64? this 'defeet-extrei  card. *      ' "V-     "        ' *    i'  latter being excellent. Jn relation to,  pack, many jof the jimgiish Exhibits  were packed in a manner which wonld  have heen highly creditable to expert  enped American 6rrCanadian packers*  It Is uot necessary for - tne to say  much about the Empire Culinary  Class. The winners were again "Messrs.  EL. HZ' Morse &, Sons, Nova -Scotia, in  this instance with a splendid lot of  King's. The third award in. this section was quite faulty and I think I  afterwards conyin^ced the judges of  this. The hit was splendidly packed  and scored we!! and superficially the  fruit was equal to the pack* hut the  bulk of the fruit was riddled with Spot  The 20 box lot of Cox's Orange  Pippins shown by Mr. W. 6. Littler  John, suffered at tbe hands of the  Judges quite a lot on account of irregularity off color and, some Baldwin  Spot but otherwise the fruit was very  fine and attracted considerable attention from ther buyers;* Who rated it as  highly as that shown by Mr. Stark.  Mr. Stark's 20 box lot attracted as  -much or more attention as any fruit  in the Show, firstly oh" "account of his  success in the previous years display  and secondly on account of his sucess  es phis year ��������� in the Oversea'a Classes  As I said, before'this fruit' xnight nave  taken a higher position than V.H.C.  4th in. the class. The^ color was more  regular-than iu the previous lot but.  the vaiious boxes varied too much in  **mal*ir   ���������*���������*���������***  Overseas Section  Iti this section, British Columbia did  wonderfully well considering tbe  limited number of varieties show^.  Mr. Littlejcjhn's "!*Jdow8" which  were awarded the Bronze Medal were  in most excellent condition and were  firmer than any other Snows in the  show, but they���������did not compare in  color with the 1st and 2nd winneis.  In Mac Intnsh Bed's the lots ������shsb=  fted by Messrs. Leckie Ewing and  Littlejohn did not compare with favor  with the Ontario winners, either in  dolor or firmness.  size.

V,'3Jackson occupied  the^ chair at the _ annual meeting; of  (breston Valley. A^wcultural Association on Wedhee4^ night, but "there  was rather a slinf t^aa\outof members,  except the 1U22 dilators, who were in  attendance in ������l'ni������ft������tull force.  After the'snints^s ofthe previous  annual conclave had been read and  declared ' approvejS." R. Walmsley,  secretary-treRsure^presented the financial statement. Which had" been'audited and found correct by the association's auditor, Dr<Henderson.  On the receipts sfde of the ledger a  year's intake of about 91200 is shown,  and this is made lip.of $������2 membership  ft-.es; gate receipt-^ o>ff l|23Q; proceeds of  sewing machine raf&e. $128; $330 was  rustled bv Messrs'.'G. Johnson, Bennett and Allan ' of Sthe finance committee; the government grant was  $114; ihe Easter ^Monday eyening  whist and dance accounted for 32225  and in his campaign for special prizes  Secretary Walmsley had accumulated  $211���������along with ^goods of various  ���������sorts that were donated yaltied at almost $200.  Wirh the exception of a Si 3 cash  balance this a?noun*$~ bad aii heen expended.   $430  was"? required   to   pay  prizewinners. About $250 went to  wipe off all iJebt on the Enal-n building.  $160 was;req4iired to pay interest on  the grounds debt. $80 was spent. on  stationery and printing. - $75 was paid  aB secretary's salary.' The "band on  fair'day cost $25, and the balance  went in general expense, such as*improvements to grounds, .decorations,  postage, etc.  Tbe statement of assets and liability  ies shows the grounds and buildings  valued at $6000, and on this $2500 ia  owing on the grounds purchase. The  interest os?"the-,<srro82nds **!Srehsss Ties  has been fully "met each year, but com*  mencing with 1023^ the directors are  faced with making payments on prin-  *C><nnl   -which,    tifr.rwi.~ncr t-*%  uorpoMnonif  ���������. -~- . x-.^^-.   .   -.-m-^ ~^-        ..nmxr-��������� .   ��������� ^.  of sale of three years-- ago, were held  in ayeyance for that time. Insurance  is paid in advance and not ������ c������������nt of  debt is carried forward In any direction.  At the annual meeting the full  board of eleven directors were chosen,  and a meeting is being held this week  to elect the president, vice-president  and secretary-treasurer, Mr. -Wahn-  sley having decided to retire fi-qns the  latter dual position after three ye$rs  of excellent service cheerfully render-  ed, and in appreciation of which the  Officers for 1923  more successful lots were | fruit.  than 2 sizes in th'e '"fiSa's Orange Pip  pin" 1st and 3rd, and three sizes in the  "Snows" 2nd Prize. -v,  A serious drawback of this display  was the very untidy lining of the boxes and this comment was made ou the  scoreboard by the- Judges; the wrap  also Was not of the bes&. but -fcherp-ROk-  ngpptherwise was very -good-        ���������  Cos Orange P&pin  Mr. W.

The. annual general meeting of  Creston Valley Women's Institute  held on Friday, 36 members being  present. After fcjae minutes of the  laa$ annual meeting had been read  aad adopted, the secretary- then read  the,x*epor% of 1922; followed by the  financial statement, showinga balance  on November 30th of $"143,5?, including  the building- fund of $85.

The Newton Pippina from Kelowna  were very green and in no wayfflt ftr  exhibition.  In "^riy other Variety" Olass.  British Columbia did supremely well.  Mr. -Robt. Stack's Winter BananaB  were extremely fine * being very  Uniterm In pack and siifferlng little  los������ in scoring on account of bi'uiaeu.  I may say this exhibit attracted a  very considerable amount of attention  arid I waa able to do n lot of pioneer  work with it���������not only with dealers  -but consumers. I think we may  ���������make this a eucce&sf ul variety on the  English market ns I convinced enquirers that it was.a hard apple and  bruises purely superficial.  The exhibit placed second was a  very fine lot off Grnvenoteins with extraordinary color. Mr. Leckie-Bwinga  lot in a loss keen competition would  have taken a high . pSa-ce hut loat ha  color to the previous lot.  Mr. Stark's Delicious whioh received  3rd award were very evon and fine  and superior in every way to the other  exhibit from Creston.

With some  people this condition comes and goes;  with  others  it is -chronic���������they can't  shake it off.      It interferes --with business,   spoils    recreation   ana robs life  of all its joys.    These'..men* and women  are  only  able  to   work  at  half-speed.

These pills    enrich    and  stimulate tlie blood,     strengthen    the  nerves     and     give     you fresh   vigor.  Here  is  proof.    Mr.' "William   F.   Beli,  Brace.bridge,     Ont..     says:���������"I     have  been    recommending     Dr.    Williams'  Pink  Pills for a number, of years, because of the benefit I got from  their  use.       I   was  in  a   terribly   run-down  condition.      1 was scarcely able to do  anything all winter.      To make things  worse I   took  the mumps and  caught  cold, and as a  result  was'confined-to  bed for six weeks, part of the time in  a terrible' Hever.      Of "bourse I was doctoring, but instead of getting better X  was   growing  weaker.       At. -this  time  my father-in-law urged  me to .trv Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, bur    I    liad    lost  faith   in   all    medicine, ancl    refused.  However,  he had  such  faith in'-theni  that  he  bought mc  six  boxes,  and ofc'  course f could not refuse to "Take them.  Now I am glad I- did nor.    J had*not  taken them long before.    1    began    to  have faith in tlie  pills myself.     There  was no doubt I was improving.      Day  by  daj*- uiy strength came back and E  gained���������in     weight     from   115   to .1-16  pounds.      Therefore. I feel that I cannot speak too highly of Dr. Williams"  Pink Pills and J   hope  my experience  will   convince  some  other  sufferer  of  tlie value of this medicine."  You can get these pills through any  deater in medicine or by mail post,  paid at 50 cents a box or six 'joxes for  ���������J2.no from The F>r. Williams' Medicine Co.. Brockville. Onr.
