Vol. 14, No. 24, Whole No. 700.  Thursday, September 22, 1921  Subscription $3   per year  W  J. Bowser and J. T. Jones  Tell of Complaints in Interior  Messrs. W. J. Bowser, and J. T.  Jones, member for the South Okanagan, arrived in Enderby last Saturday and spent an hour or two discussing general conditions with a few  friends. These gentlemen are returning from an auto trip to the Cariboo and other parts of the Interior,  where they have been making a general survey of conditions with relation to the building of the railway to  Hazelton and Fort George. They report finding the utmost dissatisfaction there, and particularly amongst  the residents of that, district, who  claim there is a scandalous waste of  money in the work being done.. At  every point the samo complaint is  heard, they say, of waste and inefficiency. The Government's liquor  act also comes in for its share of de-  nunciation.  Mr. Bowser and Mr. Jones, questioned as tb the probable legislation  which   would    be    brought   down .by  the Government at the fall session of  the legislature to aid municipalities,  could give no inkling of wfiat measures would be suggested, but pointed  out that the proposed session was  only a month off, and, taking what  Premier Oliver had said to the mnui-  clpal convention only a week or two  ago, they could not see how conditions could materially be changed  between now and the meeting of the  legislature, therefore they could give  very little hope of anything being  proposed that would; solve the problem or afford any assistance. They  were, however, prepared to support  any measure that promised relier.  Leaving Enderby early in the afternoon? Mr. Bowser and Mr. Jones went  to ��������������������������� Armstrong, thence to Vernon, and  will proceed as far south as Oliver,-  the new townsite on the tract of land  being opened up for returned men, in  order to get first-hand information  relating thereto.  XXXXXXXXXXXXX***  X ENDERBY  BRIEFS X  *XXXXXXXXKXXXX  Good morning! What would England do if there was no Ireland?  Mrs. Jas. Martin and daughter returned from the East last Friday.  Special Harvest Home services will  bo held in "the Methodist Church on  Oct. 2nd.  Dr.  Sumner will be in Enderby, at  'the  King  Edward  hotei,   all  of  next  week,"Sept. 26th to Oct. 1st. c  Born���������������������������rAt- her home- in - Enderby.  Sept. 19, to Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Austin  (nee.Katie Graham)  a son.  Miss S. G. Walker, after spending  the summer in Enderby, - left - Wednesday on.her return to Los-Angeles.  ��������������������������� Mrs. Cecil A. Blay will be At  Home. Friday, Sept. 23, from 3.30 to  fi, and on the first Friday of each  month.  Work is now underway on the  gravel walK on the north side of Cliff  street from George to the Methodist  Church.  The Misses Josephine and Louise  Paradis left on Tuesday for Van������������������  couver to attend college and the uni-  verstty.J  Capt. Rev. Gibson returned from  the East Jast week and ,. conducted  regular services in the Methodist  Church on Sunday.  A Conservative convention will be  field at Penticton on the 29th of September for the nomination of a candidate  for the federal  bouse.  JJarvest   thanksgiving" service   was  =held=in=Stf=George's-*=church^last=Sun-  day, the church being beautifully ^dec-  orated for the occasion and the ser������������������  vices well attended.  Of course we are a long way off,  but from this distance it looks like  straining at a gnat, the way Lloyd  George and Pe Valera are jockeying  about the meaning of a word.  A train of 68 loaded freight cars  was,pulled out of tho Valley on Sunday. The average daily freight trains  to Sicamous frem the Okanagan are  made up of about 50 cars, mostly  fruit, vegetables and lumber.  A golden   eagle  measuring  7ft  4ln  from tip to tip was shot Tuesday in  the chicken yard of Rupert Davy by  George Butterworth. The bird had  talons as. large as the fingers on a,  man's hand, and legs like a man's  wrist.  Word was received from Frank Elliott this week, who located at Gladstone, Man., at the close of the war,  that he is now in the St. Boniface  hospital, Winnipeg, undergoing sut  gical treatment of a war wound in  the neck. ,v  Miss St.Clare, of The Quality Store,  Salmon Arm, will be at Teece & Sons  store, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 30th  and Oct. 1st, with a display of high-  class Fall Millinery. Orders taken for  alterations and trimmings; millinery, suits, coats and dresses.  It is hard to believe that Enderby  spent some $20,000 on macadamizing  Cliff street from the amount of mud  we have allowed, to gather upon it,  and that.by the expenditure of $25 or  so it could be scraped clean if done  at this time of year.  George Butterworth was an En-  derby visitor from Mara on Wed ties  day. Mr Butterworth reports construction work on the Revelstoke  road practiqlally' completed," though  there can hardly be any traffic over  it this fall.  E. B. Dill and E. J. Mack returned  from a cariboo hunt north, of .Ques-'  nell Saturday night. They came into  a season of rain going in to the lake  and experienced many raod troubles  goin... and coming���������������������������but each,, shot-' a  moose'; "/ind1 the rest: doesn't count.  Hong. Young was brought up before  Magistrate Rosoman Wednesday- afternoon on evidence brought out at  the trial of Harry Phillips some days  ago. to answer the'charge of having  supplied' the Indian with apple cider  having lots of JticK in It," and, with  the evidence of three Indians against  him,- Pone was fined $50 and costs,  Constable Pailey pressing the case.  Patrons of the JPnderby Theatre  who failed to see Doug Fairbanks in  "The - Mollycoddle," shown Tuesday  and Wednesday nights, missed a rare  treat. The performance throughout  was well pictured, and Fairbanlts is  at his best. He is a finished artist and  one of the roost daring on the film  stage. Lloyd, in "High and Dizzy" also gave some thrills that made the  hair stand up.  By an arrangement consumated  this week, Thos. Morton became a  partner in the garage ana vulcanizing plant recently installed by Chas.  Monteith, and the firm will be known  as Monteith & Morton. This gives  tbe motormen of Enderby and district a vulcanizing plant wiiere the  work of tire-repairing can be done as  well as any other vulcanizing plant  could do "It. Tbey are located next  to the Enderby Theatre.  Remember the school fair which  is to be held next Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 28���������������������������ln the Fortune school,  when exhibits by the school children  will be shown ln their several lines  of study. It is especially desired  that parents take advantage of the  opportunity to get in touch with the  teachers in their work, and also to  see the work of their children in  comparison with that of their classmates.   All are invited to attend.  There is no more enthusiastic  woman farmer in Britis* Columbia  than Mrs. Harry Worth, of Trinity  Valley. Late Tuesday evening she  arrived in Enderby from their ranch  home, with coops of show birds and  driving registered calves to the fair  at Armstrong which opened yesterday and is on today. At an hour  when home folks were getting ready  for bed, Mrs. Worth left Enderby  to walk those show calves to the  fair.  XXXXXXXXXXXXX)*  * GRINDROD  NOTES X  XXXXXXXXXXXXX*  A.

Saturday night.  Major Taylor, assistant district  engineer,. paid a brief .visit to Mara  last Monday.  Mrs.. Wm. JCing.of Vernon, paid  us a short.visit this week, the guest  of Mrs. Cyril flosoman.  Frank Hamilton returned --last  week from the Prairies where he has  been most   of   the - summer.  Miss Massey, who has been visiting her cousin . here for J sometime,  left for - her home at Calgary last  week.  The opening of the grouse season  was looked forward to with eagerness and quite a number bagged  nearly the limit. The deer seem to  be either scarce or away up in the  hills- as__we- have _heard..o.f_only__. one  being shot/  Miss Haydon, our junior teacher,  received an urgent call to seturn to  Vancouver Jast week, owing to the  serious illness ln her family, and left  on Saturday by motor to Salmon  Arm. Mrs. Burnett is substitute in  her absence.  Wm. Owen has received the appointment of issuing receipts for the  destruction of noxious birds, etc.,  under the Act. This will enable anyone to take advantage of the provisions of the Act 'without having to  go to Enderby as before. Already  our genial storekeeper Is responsible  for a number of crows.  There was much life in the harvest  fields at the coast a week or so ago.  The Kitsilano Times man saw two  figures In a wheat field. One stood  stolidly, motionljcs. The otber moved  here and there. One was the hired  man; the other was a scarecrow. The  reason the scarecrow moved so. much  was th%Ji ������������������e couldn't stand still In the  wind.  At a recent meeirig tn Victoria the  B. C. Provincial Council of the Boy  Scouts Association ������������������ was, re-established. It is the purpose of the council to organize at an early date a  campaign for the stimulating and  general welfare of the Boy Scout  movement.  We have been asked to bring this  matter before lhe citizens of this  district in the hope that they will  see that a local committee is formed  to meet and thoroughly discuss theo  matter, and if possible organize and  support a troop of Boy Scouts in the  district.  The objects and aims of the Boy  Scout movement are too well known  to require repeating, nevertheless, to  refresh our minds we would - say:  "The aim of the Boy Scouts Association is to develop good character in  boys by preparing them for good  citizenship���������������������������training them in habits  of observation, obedience and self-  reliance��������������������������� inculcating loyjalty and  helpfulness ~ to others ��������������������������� teaching  them "services, useful to the - public  and handicrafts useful to themselves  and promoting their moral and physical development by true comradeship and-by healthy open-air pursuita-  and games. The motto of-the' association is 'Be Prepared,' which means  that the Scout is to be always in a  state bf readiness in mind and body  to d0 his duty and meet any emergency." ''���������������������������'.'  ��������������������������� - Giving a brief history if the Boy  Scouts, Gen. Sir-R." Baderi-Powell  recently wrote in. the London Daily  Telegraph:''"iri 1893-4,' when serving  with" my' regiment, "the 13th Hussars,"  I realized* that 'the ordinary peace  training "of" soldiers -for.;.seryice^ln- the  field was not sufficiently practical,  and I therefore carried'~ouV classes' ov  training in ray squadfton for,'the men  individually in scouting and campaigning. Jn 1897-8, ^ having been  transferred to command the 5th  Dragoon Guards, I carried on similar  training, but on improved lines, with  view to developing character���������������������������i.e.,  manliness, self-reliance, arid reliability���������������������������as well as field-efficiency, since  these were largely lacking in lads  coming to the army from the ordinary board school. My lectures and  practices were collated and published  in a small book, "Aids to scouting."  "Puring .the South African war,  Major Lord Edward Cecil, my Chief  Staff Officer, organized the boys of  Mafeking as a corps for general utility on scout lines rather than those  of cadets, and the experiment was an  entire __. success.      _T_he experience  ulary, with some artr.ot.K'f.'o ������������������o make  it suitable for ��������������������������� boys., follow!ns the  principles adopted by Zu'.'*. und oilier  African tribes, wlrch ..������������������������������������������������������flftf.te.l some  of the ideas of Epictetus and the  methods of the Spartans nnd if the  ancient British and Irish for tr_.ii.ini  their boys. I also looked into tbe  Bushido of the Japanese, as well as  the more modern method of John  Pounds, for dealing with boys, and  Jahn for ������������������ their physical culture,' as  well as those of today put In practice  by Sir William Smith, Seton-Thomp-  son, Pan Beard and others.  "In January, 1908, I brought outthe  handbook of the training, entitled,  'Scouting for Boys,' in six fortnightly  parts. A number *of troops were  smarted in different parts of the United Kingdom before the series was  half completed. Although I had only  anticipated . that scouting would be  taken up as an additional attraction  for their boys by the Boy's Brigade  and Church Lads' Brigade, it became  eviderit that a separate movement  was required to deal with the number  of. boys who were taking lt up uncon-*  nected with these bodies.  V"In 1910 'the Iroy Scout movement  had grown to srich dimensions' that I  felt it incumbent upon me to leave .  the army in orded to take the movement in hand. With a view to making the subject appeal to boys and to  meet their spirit of adventure/ I held  up for. their ideal the doings of backwoodsmen, knights, adventurers, arid-  explorers as the tierces for them to  follow. These I. grouped generally  under the title 'Scouts.' Through;  camp life, boat work, pioneering'arid,  nature study one could-find all.the at-,  tractions- for a boy, .which- at-.the  same time would be the inedium of  Instruction." ."--.-  Jn ..order to  make  the object, and  aims of the Boy Scouts thoroughly fa- '  miliar to our readers, the-Commoner  next weeH.will go more fully into the  work   of  General   Paden-Powell,   the.  originator of tbe movement- ���������������������������  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  X NORTH DEPP CPEEK H  XXXXXXXXXXKXXXXH  M- Harvie has started building a  new house.  Miss Lang, of Enderby, is the guest  of Miss Jamieson.  Clifford Johnston was a business  visitor to Enderby last week.  Mrs. Wm. Blackburn and daughter,  Bertha, visited Mrs' T- A. Sharpe last  week.  Leonard and Clifford Watkins left  last_week_for._the-PrairIe,_where_they_  taught one that if their training were  made to appeal to them, the boys  would learn readily, and also that  boys were capable of taking responsibility to a far greater degree than  was generally believed, if only they  were trusted. The troop was made a  small unit, in order that the commander should be able to deal with  each individual on personal knowledge of him; the system of patrols  was instituted���������������������������six boys under a  leader. In carrying out the organization  of the  South  African  Constabu-I After- cards,   lunch   was * served,   fol-  hope to get employment In the harvest fields.  A. Watkins returned home on Friday from Armstrong, where he has  been several weeks working with M..  Hoover's threshing crew.  In spite of the small attendance at  the social held by the United Farmers on Friday evening, everyone had a  splendid time. Miss Jamieson won  the ladles' prize, Miss Lang consolation. Mr. Beddington the gentlemen's  prize, and Mr. Hadow the consolation.  Cattlemen in the Okanagan are  pleased at the success which has  been scored in some of the most important western livestock fairs this  year by the Fintry herd of Herefords  owned by the Punswater farm. First  honors" in their class was awarded  these cattle, at Edmonton, Calgary,  Vancouver   and   New   Westminster.  lary, I employed the same principles  on an extended scale.  "Responsibility was thus given to  the junior non-commissioned officer*,  and emulation between the patrols  produced a good spirit and a higher  standard of efficiency all round. The  human side was appealed to, and the  men were trusted on their honor to  a very large degree in carryihg out  their duties. Their uniforms for  field work was the cowboy hat, shirt,  green tie, and shorts. Badges were  awarded for proficiency in s different  lines of work. In 1907 I held a trial  camp for scout training for boys at  Brownsea Island, at which I had boys  of every class to experiment upon  and its results exceeded my expectations and prompted m'e to go on  with the idea. The training was  based on the lines  which  I had  em-  lowed  by dancing.  STOCK   JUDGING  Okanagan scholars who went to  the Provincial Fair some days ago  to compete in the stock judging contest, returned last Friday. The Armstrong team, consisting of Pudley  Pritcfiard, Eddie Patten and Hector  Ford, won second place, and were  awarded silver medals. Eleven district  teams  competed.  The Enderby team stood sixth  with Violet Grant second in horse  judging, out of about 50 contestants.  The competition was close all  thorough, and the Fair management  did all in their power to entertain  the visiting teams.  Married  men  who  claim   they  live  longer  are  met  by   single   men   who  ployed with soldiers and fhe constat- |say it only seems longer.

Scplember 22, 1921  Enderbv Wheat Grades No. 1 Northern  Tluil llie Okanagan Valley can grow the fincsl  grade of when I has long been recognized by old-  iimcrs in lhc dislricl. ^ Twenty years ifgo, and  more, there was produced in lhis district, more  wheat lhan i.s produced loday, and il always has  been a good grade of wheat. Bul it was early  seen that we havc not tlie acreage here lo go inlo  wheal growing on a large scale, and only a Tew  farmers devote more Hum 20 to 200 acres to  wheat. Tliis has nol been due lo poor quality or  llie lack of markcl, bul simply to lhc fact lhat so  many other branches of farming can bc taken up  al a greater margin of profit, labor and facilities  for handling considered. As proof of lhc quality  ol* Enderby-grown wheat, a carload was sent to  the Eburne mill. Vancouver, lasl week, where il  was graded No. 1 Northern by Dominion Grain  Inspector Poulin: This: is thc highest possible  grade next lo No. 1 Hard. Enderby-grown wheat  usually gels this grade, and the best part of it is  the quantity comes willi quality, a ton to the acre  being thc average yield for (he dislrict.  According to lhe Liberal chieftan, whose word  is blazoned in great letters on thc first page of  thc Liberal dailies, there, are 112 scats safe for  his party followers in the approaching Dominion  election. Possibly Premier Meighen is as sanguine of victory as the Liberal leader, but he is  loo wise a politician -to speak his thoughts if he  does entertain Ihem. The holding of these impressions by either thc Liberal or the Conscrva'-  live leaders, or by both, docs nol make it so, and  the.probability is that neither will have any'more  lhan a working majority, and lhat-the balance of  powcr will rest with the Farmer-Progressives.  There cannot be,any question about thc able  leadership of PrcmierMcighen. He has proven  his ability in this respect. And should he, in his  remaking of the cabinet, get about him young  men of recognized ability," a.s the .people havc  found in him, he will bc able lo win in lhc coming campaign. Bid whether hc will havc a working majorily or nol, lhat is a epicstion that only  the.ballots: will answer.    It is folly to predict the  An Object Lesson  ~'Si  It is natural to men to indulge in thc illusion  of hope." Criticise as wc may, condemn' if we  will, wc must, after all, a dm ir Hi at in thc organized ability of the Japanese-there is an object lesson for our own people. As Canadians wc "talk"  co-operation; the Japanese practice it. Wc "talk"  mutual or community helpfulness; lhc Japanese  put iL into effect. Wc "lalk" concrete facts; the  Japanese arc thc facts themselves. Wc are going  lo do il; they have done it. These are the plain,  bald facts lhal cannot be sidestepped.  As organized co-cpcralionists the Japanese in  particular and Orientals in general have,, us  '] beaten "in a thousand ways." If. instead of condemning the Oriental, wc could, get together and  organize and work with thc same spirit of community-, betterment as thc Orientals show in the  handling of themselves, the "problem" would  disappear as the morning dew. By lack of cooperation wc makc.the menace that is feared..  outcome. That lhc Farmci'cProgrcssive party is  certain lo carry a majority of the scats-in Ontario and thc Northwest is conceded by men in  all shades of politics who arc nol prone lo make  a big noise io inspire confidence in their party  followers. It is not possible for them tp elect a  working majority, but they undoubtedly will get  enough in to bc a very formidable powcr in the  balance.  Spcakin_>- of the local riding, there can 13c no  question aboul lhc nomination of Mr. MacKelvie  by the Conservatives. Il is nol clear whether  there will be a returned soldier candidate in Col.  Edgett, or a straight Liberal, though it seems  probable lhal Col. Edgett will bc pul up again.  There docs nol seem lo be any doubt as to Mr.  MacKelvic's election, for it is recognized lhat in  the campaign a year ago hc made a clean, open  fight and won on the.merits of lhc contest, and  in his initial sessional work hc lock up in ah  able manner with the various department, the  many issues which are agitating thc people of his;  constituency. Mr. MacKelvie, it is fell, should  havc the opportunity to carry out thc work  started by him, and, if indications point to anything, it is lhat hc will poll a larger vote than  was polled last year.  i3. C. Has Sixty New Communities  Why Disarmament Will Be Slow Coming  When lhe people of the United Slates were  making their light for the inauguration of lhe  parcel "post, il used lo be said that lhere were jusl  five reasons why it was so slow coming, and thcy  would name as these reasons the'names of the  express companies then operating there. It was  a trite- way of giving expression to a fact well  understood and generally admitted.

Sixty new communities have come inlo existence in the province during the past year, bringing the total number' up to 2,209. The new settlements are largely created by - thc occupation of  new lands by soldier sclllers and arc.an indication  of-the growth of the basic agriculture industry in  British Columbia.  Mr. Roy -Wrigley. head of the firm of Wrigley's  Directories, Ltd., Vancouver, is reported highly  pleased wilh his product.

Banishing the Tango  Paris is now in Ihe throes of a struggle against  thc idiotic. The Church has banned the tango,  the fox trot and lhe shim my, and dancing professors have given careful consideration to this  grave question, and have come lo thc conclusion  lhat lhe decadence of dancing is simply a corollary of general decadence of taste in the aijts���������������������������  music, the I heal re. painting and literature. Thcy  are amazed lhal so many French people should  welcome foreign importations, anil they sigh for  peace in the dancing world. They arc convinced,  says a Paris correspondent, that a solution of the  problems raised by the introduction of objectionable dances can only be reached by their will  lo react vigorously against idiotic and grotesque  contortions, and to appeal to French public opinion and lo artists of every kind to join their efforts in-lhc struggle for raising lhe_ tone of the  arts. The professors have decided to banish from  Iheir classes all dances which lack grace and are  incompatible with a good education, and, to  show lhat they arc in dead earnest, they annoncc  their intention to give up teaching the shimmy,  because of ils resemblance lo lhe dance St. Vitus  and olher infirmities, chronic or passing, with  which humanity is afflicted.  ������������������*>���������������������������;  j/St.i  :1>c:  _/*ft.  rx.T^ic;  ?<."ffi VMMTH-IWI'**>  ilHSawa  "A-  1  *-V2  ������������������sa  ���������������������������*-*::  ', nrrj IffJTTttp ll; 111'  '".I'WirfmHjViHft*;,  W&������������������3  ml  !| I I  >*���������������������������'**���������������������������  Credit Information  The Bank of Montreal, upon  request, places with the Managers of its Foreign Offices, and  with its correspondents, credit  data concerning its customers,  in order that firms dealing With  them may obtain information  on inquiry.

On the Open Road with Hank Reklaw  Depends on Whose Ox is Gored  For some months it has been the policy of the  railway companies, the banks, and other great  financial institutions, to push thc propaganda,  "come back to normal."

Railway  men have accepted a cut in salary the same at:  everybody else. Thc merchant, the farmer, the  manufacturer���������������������������all have pocketed their loss. But  the railways tell us they cannol do so. inspite of  the reduction in operating cosls, men's salaries,  etc. Think of it: Here is a farmer, for instance,  selling his beef and pork and mutton at from 3  to 10 cents a pound, a price much lower than Ihe  pre-w'ar price, \and yet.Jie has to stand a freight  rate increase of 100 per cent. Conditions arc thc  same for the wheat grower and others.  The argument advanced by the railways why  freight rates should not come down is as absurd as thc argument advanced by thesugar men  why Canadian citizens should bc forbidden by  law to buy sugar in lhe cheapest market. Thc  diU'ercnce is in the fact that the railroads can say  to the people: Pay the rale or don't ship, and the  sugar men, had to meet natural market condilions.  Our railway com pa 113' is not 0113' more, nor  less, hoggish when il comos to dividends Ihc-n  anyone else.

Possibly excessive freight  rates are not entirely to blame, but, as regards  iunxber and poles and farm produce, thc freight  rate has a very greal deal to do with it. Logically"  there can bc no movement in business while lhc  freight and transportation rates continue excessive. As v. as the condition in general mcrchan- ;  dising while prices were_-out of all reason, and  goods were allowed to stay on the shelf, so is it  with lumber, farm produce, manufactured goods.  crate here, tlie railways.appealed to the railway  commission for a further increase in freight and  passenger rates to meet thc increase to bc paid  the men. This was allowed, and freight rates lo-  day arc just about double what.thcy were before.  The late finding of the railway commission to  thc effect that0there~ should be no reduction in  fined to.what is absolutely necessary.-- There can  be no free intercourse, no free movement of any-  thing that has to be transported. It is-not probable the present order maintaining thc excessive  freight rates will, stand long, ,. provided thc  people laugh at thc absurdity of it as they did  in the case of the sugar ruling.

Jt catches the eye by its appearance of orderly prosperity, its shady  orchard,    well-hoed    gardens,    the  Jileekness of the milk-cows grazing  n the higher paddocks and the vivid  green of its alfalfa fields stands out  in strong relief against the vast  brown barren slopes of the surrounding country, sun-baked, covered with  page-brush and little else.  Weary aa she is with a life-time's  work of fifty-three years, behind her,  Mrs. Foster still carries on ��������������������������� as  faithfully and as thoroughly as she  did twenty years ago. With the  help of an Indian who comes in to  do the ploughing and give a hand  witb the haying and harvesting, she  and a niece, who sometimes stays  With her, manage the whole work of  ���������������������������the farm alone.  Mrs. Foster gets more out of her  - acreage than any other farmer in  the province. Every inch of ground  la turned to account on a methodical  and scientific system; the vegetable  and animal growth are made to react to each other's mutual benefit  and both to the good of their owner  and the country.  Her five milk-cowi Mature on the  farm and she sella all ner dairy pro  duce to an hotel; besides these there  are a couple of work-horses, pigs  and chickens. Every scrap of feed  used for tht ftock ia produced on  the ranch itself.  Mrs. Foster hat worked down to  a fine point just exactly how much  space it is necessary to devote to  alfalfa, grain and hay in order to  do this and nothing is bought in th������������������  way of feed except perhaps clamshell for the chickens. The crop and  the animals balance each other and  no overweight is allowed on either  side.  This farmer is also a first class  gardener, both in theory and in practice, and has sweet corn earlier and  over a longer period than anyone  else in British Columbia. She devotes,; about a quarter of an acre of  well adapted land to her early spring  garden and another piece with a  colder aspect to her lata summer  planting; so by a carefully planned  system of sowing in succession she  has a plentiful supply of fresh vegetables to sell to the hotels and also  to ship to other points.  Lillooet is never troubled by late  frosts so her tomatoes are early and  these she sells by the bucketful and  last year shipped 100 boxes to the  coast. The orchard contains every  sort of tree-fruit, including Italian  DTunes, neaches and apricots.of which  fatter Mrs. Foster has two big trees  (now in bearing) grown from seed  sown since she came to the place  nine years, ago.   Last year she ship  ped away 700 boxes of fall and win*:  ter apples.  There are some healthy looking,  hedges of grape vines which bean  profusedly and plenty of raspberries  and other amall fruits, but her.  speciality is melons for which the  is famous. There are rows and rowa.  of these, cantaloupes, musk and'  water melons for all of which she  finds a ready market. Her four beehives are partly the reason why her  fruit is so successful.  And so we take off our hats to  this woman who is "carrying on" so  wisely and so well to our country's  benefit.���������������������������H.

Tb������������������   South   side   of   the   Fraser  River Valley ia known as the best  dairy  farming   district   in   British  Columbia.    Some of this most fertile land has been farmed for thirty  and  forty  years and is  paying rts  owners back  with, full  interest  for  all their toil of clearing it.   All the  biggest   farmers   are   going   in   not  and strong for purebred stock, chief  ly Holsteins, Jerseys and Ayrshiref  and nearly all of them have the lat  est type of cow-house and most up  to-date appliances.  One of the largest and oldest  farms is that of Shannon Brothers  who were born and bred in the  neighborhood and settled on then;  ������������������resent  farm   of   two  hundred   and  thirty-five acres when it was forest  land thirty-five years ago. Their  hard work has turned the standing  bush into acres of verdant meadow  land and rich fields of grain producing 100 bushels of oats to the  acre.  The  specialty   is   purebred    Ayr  .hires.  They have a herd of cisrhty-fom  head of cattle, counting bulls and  calves, and so famo"s have they be  come for this breed that their stock  is continually being shipped all over  British Columbia, to the States and  ;ven across the Pacific to Hong  Kong.  One of their cows, "Grandview  Rose," whose sire came straight  from Scotland, is supposed to be the  best Ayrshire in the British Emplwl  and has a wonderful record of 21.42JI  lbs. milk and 1.035 lbs. butter fat  in 364 days. The Shannons think  little"of naving $1,000 for a bull-calf,  -:uch is their great regard for pedi-  rree and breeding to type.  . All tjje milking is done by an  electric machine and the cow-house  is modern in every detail even to the  ���������������������������!se of a litter-carrier. As in all  iairy farms in B. C. the cattle are  ^ilo-fed throughout the winter, a  -nixture here  of oats  and vetch.  The milk is all bottled right on  'he farm, af^er point, through a  scientific cool ing process, and 70  gallons of it are shinned ���������������������������every  mornin^, chiefly to Vancouver. -^  H.
