It is written in endors-  ation of Prince Rupert's efforts to keep the  liquor men out of Prince Rupert. Editor  Houston tells us that there are over fifty  applications on file for licences to sell liquor  at Prince Rupert, and then he asks, ' Why  are men so eager to sell something that  tends to degrade those who use it, and the  selling of which is opposed by nine out of  ten of the residents of Prince Rupert? . . .  The sale of liquor at retail will increase the  size of the future city's police force, the  size of its prisons, and the number of its  paupers; for liquor drank in Prince Rupert \ grounds Friday,  will have the same effect as liquor drank  in San Francisco and Seattle aric[ Victoria  and^Vani_ouv^ will have  I Armstrong Fall Fair that made it the  most creditable our sister town has  held. The display of fruit and fancy work  and the individual exhibit by A. Buckley,  were magnificent; the exhibit of horses was  also splendid, embracing 200 entries. The  vegetable display has been better; also the  cattle and hogs. These divisions showed  the quality but not quantity, there being  few entries. There were some splendid  entries in the poultry division, but as a  division it was poor. On the whole, the  fair was a decided success. But there are  many improvements that could be made.  One of these is important. If the fair is  advertised as a two-day fair it should be a  two-day fair. The judging should be finished the evening of the first day, and the  second day should be enlivened. by music  and sports. Though this was advertised to  be a two-day fair, it was only a one-day  fair. The exhibition building was not  opened until late in the evening of the first  day, and some of the judging was not finished at 5 o'clock in the evening of the  second day. These suggestions may or  may not be deemed important, but they are  the echo  of  many  voices  heard on the  lEILisLminejonLj^  I live it; what I make of it will de-  a place in history, even though it behandi- j ~*~* pend upon my conception of it.

Columbia Flouring Mills Co.,  Enderby 4  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  59_-  Hood River Orchards.  The following description of the  Hood River District, which has  acquired an almost world-wide  reputation, is taken from an exchange, and the first impression  that a resident of the district gets  from reading it, is the comparative smallness of the area, and  the small number of trees. It  reads as follows:  ' 'From an Oregon Agricultural  College press bulletin dealing  with the Hood River orchards it  is shown that the leading fruit  of Hood River is the apple, and  the Yellow Newton and Spitzen-  berg are the leading varieties.  The total number of apple trees  from one to 25 years of age was  349,435 last year. Of these  Yellow Newtons lead with 174,684  trees, followed by Spitzenbergs  150,616. The balance is made  up of some twenty other varieties.  "Of pear trees there are 9,152;  cherry trees 4,527: peach trees  7,180. Eighty-two per cent, of  the apple trees have been set out  during the past six years.  ' 'Straw berries: ��������������������������� Strawberries  is the pioneer crop in Hood River. They are planted extensively  in the young orchards where they  are allowed to remain until the  trees come into bearing and furnish a much needed income while  the orchard is growing up and  producing only expense bills.  The only berry grown is the  Clark Seedling, which is a remarkably good shipper, selling  the past season at (1907) as high  as $3.35 a crate. It is a light  bearer, 175 crates being considered a good crop. The total  acreage in strawberries at Hood  River is 756. Of this 532 acres  are grown in orchards/'  In the Okanagan there are at  present over <>a million and a  quarter trees planted in our orchards, and it is safe to say that in  two years there will be somewhere near a million trees bearing fruit. There is room for a  score or more such districts as  Hood River within the bounds of  the Okananan, and few of our  residents  yet    realize   what  a  splendid future lies ahead of this  premier fruit-producing district  of the west. ���������������������������Vernon News.

An article in  the    Vancouver     Province  gives an inkling of what will  .happen.    It says:  |    "The   next big publicity  campaign   of   the   Western  I Canada   Immigration Asso-  B3I; ciation is to be devoted to  W\ British   Columbia.     It will  ^ j result in settling thousands  ] of Americans from the middle west in the Kootenays,  the   Okanagan and  in the  Fraser  river  valley.     The  ! agricultural and fruit-growing possibilities of the pro-  jgg j vince are to be exploited as  l_*2 I they never have been before.  This was the statement made  I by John F.  Langan of Chicago, a prominent member  or the association.   In company with Walter Gunn, of  the  Gunn-Vanderhoff  Pub-'  lishing Company of Chicago,  Mr.  Langan is touring the  I province to obtain the data  jfor the  publicity campaign  1 to be waged under the auspices of the association.

The territories and Manitoba have been considered  the legitimate market for the  fruit from the Okanagan, at  profitable prices. This year  the American-growers, finding their home market demoralized owing to the hard  time, have used Canadian  territory as the dumping  place for their surplus. The  prices at which fruit has  been landed at Winnipeg by  the Washington growers, are  below anything the Okanagan growers have had to  meet, and they feel that the  prices are too low to admit  of any margin of profit.  But when our Okanagan  growers get up against conditions similar to those prevailing in Washington, they  will realise what it means to  find a market anywhere. A  daily paper published in the  heartx of the Washington  fruit district, states that,  ' 'hundreds of acres of fruit  orchards near Bellevue, will  be thrown open to the public,  and everyone who wants  cheap fruit will be welcome  to pick all they want?< and  pay one cent a pound for all  they can carry away. This  would make the average box  of plums or apples about 15  or 20 cents to the pickers as  compared with the retail  price of 60 to 75c in Seattle.  Everybody Favors It  "Sicamous Junction" is a  misnomer, long recognised  as such. ' 'Okanagan Junction"    would   mean   some  thing. Hence, a movement  I is on foot to have the name  i changed from Sicamous to  ! Okanagan, and the move-  'ment is supported by the  entire Valley.  Houston  is  Complimentary  The editor of this family  weekly is in receipt of the  following from Bulf Houston,  Prince Rupert:  " 'Saturday Sunset has done  more for newspaperdom in B.

C., October 1, 1908  11  An Ounce of Prevention  Unless every precaution is  taken and every citizen takes  pains to observe strictly the  general rules governing sanitation about his home and  business house, Enderby is in  danger of a typhoid epidemic  this fall that will make a  big hole in our population.  There isn't any use of our  blinding our eyes to the evils  existing. The better way is  to acknowledge them and  get busy with more than hot  air to extinguish them. If  one could bottle the foul  smells running lose about  town he might have a fumi-.  gant that would put the fires  out in a crematory.     There  is a row of buildings back of  the Bell block that perfume  the morning and evening atmosphere for blocks; there  are other corners and outhouses just as bad that  would look swell and smell  sweet with a coat of crude  carbolic.  Our present drainage system is far from perfect. It  is only a make-shift. Put to  the uses it is, it is all the  more dangerous because it is  a make-shift. No power can  confine in a leaky wooden  box drain, gasses that should  be confined in a sewer. The  remedy is not easy. Until  the town can vote and sell  bonds to put in a proper system of sewerage, the make-  Why not build  a home of your own?

Ltd., Enderby  ���������������������������cnMHriw  Butter-making  ���������������������������L  If any butter maker makes butter that she's  proud of, it's good business for her to let the  world know where it came from. Nicely printed  ' vegetable parchment butter paper, and printed  with an alkali ink that won't run, will do it. The  Walker Press can furnish the finest vegetable  parchment, the finest ink that won't run, and the  finest quality of printing. If you can furnish the  finest butter, you'll have a winning combination.  Come in and talk it over with us  THE    WALKER   PRESS,   ENDERBY  ���������������������������^n  shift will have to serve. The  thing to do is for each individual to fumigate���������������������������fumigate���������������������������fumigate. The discharge from the water motor  of the Walker Press is carried into the Cliff street drain.  Since the city buried the outlet of the main drain below  the water, allowing no vent  for the gasses to escape, we  have been driven out of the  pressroom by the foul gasses  which back up in the drain.  We mention this simply to  call attention to the condition which exists at every  point in the drains. These  foul gasses are escaping and  poisoning the air we breath.  Let every man do his part.  The councilmen can't do it  all. They are only serving  the city for the glory of it,  and God knows they get little  enough of that. Fumigate!  A pint of crude carbolic will  cost you 35c at the drug  store. Pour it about the  sink holes, drain pipes, rubbish piles, and outhouses.  Don't let it be said that Enderby has a case of typhoid  this fall. Fight the foul  smells!   Carbolize things!

Little has met with  unbounded praise for the enterprise he has shown in getting out  such a handsome booklet on the  merits of  Mara   District.     He  placed a few of the brochures in  the hands of real estate men and j  friends at Vernon, Fair week, and  one and all  were surprised   to  learn of the excellent opportunities offered at this end of the!  Valley for mixed farming, hunting and pleasure parties.    One  real estate man said he was sorry  he had not known   about  this  district before as his firm had  been sending buyers  of mixed  farming land to the Kootenays  and the Chilliwack Valley.   The  same agent said only a week or  so ago he sent three buyers to  Enderby for land,  and they remained here two days and could  only hear of two places that were'  for sale.  Mr. Little's booklet will open  the eyes of many, even right at  home, to the great merits of the  North End, and we may hope to  rowing and canoeing may be enjoyed, with all the conveniences  of railroad and highway thrown  in, and there is no reason why  these should not be settled upon  by wealthy homeseekers, who  are looking for just such advantages as are here offered.    With  banks of the sleepy, soft-flowing  Spallumchjeen ? With their pleasure boats plying here and there,  and hunting and pleasure parties  taking advantage of the natural  meadows and parks along the  river and lakes, and the land  producing abundant crops of the  finest fruits and produce that can  be grown, what a country this  would be! Is it any wonder that  Mr. Little's brochure has received  MARA STATION  Where railway and river meet, giving a glimpse of an ideal hay farm of the District  such a warm welcome, and that  he is receiving unstinted encouragement from all who wish to.see  the district push ahead in a meas-  u-u_ii-.tr.ia_ff_-LW a   .-_i-������������������._. ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� muai..1��������������������������� TV������������������*_v-_n_citf_...jj c*������������������  ���������������������������������������������. tx .I.JJ_.  a climate such as ours, and fruits,  cereals, vegetables,  etc., so pro-  lifically possible, is it not surpris-  see, with the connections he has | ing that we have not scores of j  formed, a large number of sales | beautiful    homes   adorning   the I ure compatible with its resources!  put through by him, and the dis-; *"  trict between Mara and Enderby j  will   no    doubt    receive   many!  splendid acquisitions in the way i  -of-a^progressive-population. ; The-Qld-home-place-���������������������������the-place-w^here-the-pioneers-of-t-he-Valley-putr  Men who enter into th* work up wnen Enderby was a'bornin'.
