FARM  This beautiful farm property, ly ing along the banks of the river, is  one of the most charming spots for a home in the whole of the Okanagan  Valley. It has been subdivided into lots ranging in size from ten-acres  to fourteen acres. Each lot has a frontage of its full width on tLe river  while along the northern boundary runs a sixty-six foot roadway.  There is no better site for a home anywhere than at the southern end  of one of these lots, with its charming view    of    river,   and    the   valley  looking south. i   The land is rich and good,  consisting    of    a   mixture of  =clay^and=sand3���������������������������loam7=easy-to^worlv^a-nd^very-=productiver-and^t-hereMs=not=  a foot of'waste land on the whole place.  The soil and situation are ideal for the growing of small fruits and  vegetables. Anyone looking for a small place would be wise to secure  one of these lots before they are all sold. The price is within tbe reach  of everyone, and the' terms of payment are easy.  About two miles from town, by the Mara road, but by keeping a small  boat and crossing the river the distance-is not more than a mile.  Thc water does not reach these lots, even at its highest stage.   No rocks and_nof_swamp. z '_   '_._'__"   Agent  Real Estate Broker. Fire and Life Insurance.

He promised that as the result of "the  visit of the delegates of the fruit  growers association to Ottawa, there  is to be enacted an amending clause  to the fruit marks act which' will  materially help   the B.

Previous to its organization  the orangemen of Califoria were producing less than 4,000 carloads of oranges, and they were then "glutting  the market" and finding the same  difficulty our fruitmen are finding in  disposing of even that small crop.  Prices were low, ��������������������������� and orange groves ty to fire cleared - away- and yards  were torn up and replaced by other and outh������������������uses made clean and sani-  crops.

His recent visit Mr. Robertson spoke of the success  to the Yakima and other apple sec- of Puallop, Wash., in the disposition  tions in Washington, convinced him iof its raspberry crop through its  of the absolute necessity for the proposed organization. So successful  have been the Washington and other  western state organizations, that  they are now organizing a much, larger and stronger head organization,  to embrace' all the state selling  organizations of Washington, Oregon,  Idaho and Northern. California. It  is proposed that-the entire fruit output of these four states shall be sold  through this central distributing  agency. It will be seen from this  the extent to which the fruit business  is being centralized. And, where the  results have been so favorable to the  themselves. This organization is  hoping to bring the total cost of  selling down to 10 per cent.  Mr. Robertson explained that all  of the agencies visited by him had  experienced many difficulties, and he  pointed out that our fruit growers  and others in the proposed organization would meet with them also.  These would have to be overcome  with patience and business clearsightedness. He said the first essential was stringent by-laws but  "make them flexible." He said the  three-fold contract was also essential  ���������������������������from grower to the local, and from  the local to central.  central selling organization. They  handled 40 straight carloads of raspberries in one season, and never had  a loss. They have a membership of  700. The ��������������������������� experience of the Yakima  fruit" growers is equally encouraging.  When Mr. Robertson explained to the  manager of the' Yakima organization  that the B.' C. Government, stood  prepared to finance the proposed central selling organization here to the  limit of 80 per' cent, of the paid up  capital, that gentleman looked in astonishment and answered that the  fruit men of that district never.had  been so favored.

C.  growers themselves it is evident that!to move   heaven   and earth here, to  this is the only solution of the problem that is to be .considered here.  Mr. Robertson contrasted the folly  of separate independent'" selling organizations to the policy of central  selling agencies, and referred to the  accomplishments of central organizations in eastern Canada as well as  in the western states. In addition  to the advantages gained through the  organization in marketing of the output of its - members, they were able  to make- .a further saving in the  purchasig of- materials. -Mr. Robertson referred to one organization tuat ifruit  bought. $40,000. of fertilizer for its  members the first year, and the second year this amount was increased  to $100,000, on .which'it is estimated  there.was ,_a ."saving 'to, its members .of  aboutJ$15,000.   .   "���������������������������,- '���������������������������-..-  - What these organizations have done  we can do, said Mr.-Robertson.. He  gave a glowing, account ,of the,success of "the; Norfolk-.Fruit Growers'  Association, of Simcoe, Ont; also the  St.' Catherine Cold.Storage Co., and  get anything like such ii concession,"  said he.  The - Yakima' manager then explained how they bad made the start  there. They had been laboring along  much the same as the fruit men of  B. C. have in the past'few years.  To finance their first season's sales  they floated a * joint note and proceeded by the aid of the bank. " The  first year they handled $1*500,000  worth "of fruit. To raise a fund -for  the next season's operations, they  decided to deduct- 5c a box on all  passing " through their hands,  and in this -.way they succeeded in  putting aside - a .'-reserve of - $50,000,  raised-in one- season.-- This money  was borrowed- from' the' shareholders  or. members - of'_ the. selling; organization, "and notes ' were given, to. the'  members ,' running _ three years :.and  bearing 4 per cent.

say that the Dominion lands in thc j

up, and it is probable that the Slnis-

week or two. The Superintendent of

notice of the same.

people of Canada through a banker's
i optics.     Sir   Edmund is no doubt a
.brilliant    bank   manager,   but as an
j economist   his   logic is filled with a
j basket of errors.     He, a banker, ad-
,mits that the Canadain gold is taken
from   circulation    as    fast    as it is
!coined, nnd that he himself has never
seen a Canadian gold coin.   Then by
what -lino"-"of- reasoning " docs "Sir
Edmund   reach   thc    conclusion  that
the people    of   Canada    prefer paper
currency to gold?   If Sir Edmund,  a
J bank manager, has never seen a gold
coin  made in Canada,  how  many of
tlie plain common people are likely to
have seen     them ?     And if the Canadian gold has never been allowed to
get in circulation by thc banks; how
does Sir Edmund know the people of
Canada prefer paper money ?
Sir Edmund's logic reminds one of
the Irishman who had been sleeping
on a straw bed ancl was advised to
switch to a feather bed. Pat had his
doubts, but he concluded to try it.
So he selected a board wide enough
to lie upon and placed a handful of
feathers upon it, and went to bed
upon the feathers. In the morning
hc concluded there was no virtue in
feather beds, judging from the sample, and went back to his bed of
