The largest enterprise of its kind in British Columbia. The property
consists of eleven acres of real estate, nearly three of which are planted to
fruit trees; one acre of small fruits, one of shrubs, hardy herbacious plants
and several thousand rose bushes. The improvement!, and plant consist of
seven greenhouses, approximately 18,000 square feet under glass; residence,
two-storey boiler house, outbuildings and concrete cellars. A movement is
now on foot to incorporate the property into a limited liability company, with

Canadian   Pacific   Secures
Running Bights Over
Great Northern
New Line From Metaline
Fall to Trail Will CoBt
The weather still continues to
play erratic pranks when the sun |
should be shining.
Tbe following rfport,which comes
from Spokane, indicates that Grand
Forks is destined to become a more
important railway centre tban was
anticipated wben tbe agreement witb
the Canadian Paciflo and tbe Kettle
Valley line was under consideration:
Tbe scheme outlined in tbis article
seems feasible, and there is no that
it ia being'seriously considered by
the Canadian Pacific, aB it would
materially reduce tbe operating expenses of tbe road:
"In order to avoid three mountains
and to get a water grade from Kings-
gate to Grand Forks, the Canadian
Pacific will build additional mileage
through tbe northwestern part of tbe
state of Washington and will utilize
the Spokane International, Idaho &
Washington Northern, and Spokane
Falls & Northern, thus insuring a
new freight line wbich will be one
of the important railway factors in
tbe northwest.
"The Shaughnessy road, it is said,
has secured from the Hill line a
right to use that part of the Spokane
Falls & Northern known as tbe Red
Mountain line from Northport to
Rossland and tbe further extension
of the Hill line to Nelson known as
tbe Nelson & Fort Shepard.
"Another important link in the
new freight line is tbe new Canadian
Pacific extension which is being located and surveyed from the terminus of tbe Blackwell road at Metaline Falls to Waneta at tbe fork of
tbe Columbia and Pend d'Oreille
riven.' Wben this branch is completed the Canadian Pacific will
have only a short piece to build in
"Tbe Canadian Pacific is planning to operate its freight to Kings-
gate over its own line, over tbe Spokane International to Clagstone
Junction, over tbe Idaho k Washington Northern to Metaline Falls,
over the new Canadian Pacific line
to Waneta, over the Spokane Falls
& Northern to Marcus, theuce (o
Grand Forks, over the Hupe mountains io tbe Fraser river and the
coast. The Canadian Pucific and
the Great Northern recently entered
into an agreement to build a joint
line over tbe Hope mountains.
*'H. A. Dibblee, locating engineer
of the Canadian Pacilic, in charge of
the line between Metaline Falls and |
| Trail, B.C., arrived in Metaline j
Falls on Friday for a conference
with representatives of bis road and
tbe Idabo it Washington Northern.
Engineer Dibblee is reported to de- i
dare tbat a remarkably easy grade
between   Metaline   Falls  and   the.
"Between Metaline Falls and the
boundary line tbe Canadian Pacific
will build eleven tunnels, according
to Engineer Dibblee. With this
enormous amount of heavy engineering a remarkably fine grade bas
been secured,
"The 40- mile line from Metaline
Falls to Trail will cost $3,000,000,
according to estimates of engineers
for the Canadian Pacific in charge
of the work, Tbe line from the
boundary will follow the Pend
d'Oreille river to Waneta on the
Columbia river, wbere it will cross
tbe Columbia and follow along tbe
west bank to Trail."
George Bury, vice-president and
general manager of the Canadian
Pacific railway, refuses to discuss
the above report, and refers all questions dn the subject to the president, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy. at
Montreal. Grant Hall, assistant
general manager, is equally reticent.
Otber officials of the road have no
knowledge of the report from Spokane.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy is now
somewhere between Montreal and
Grand Forks. His arrival in this
city bas been expected for two or
tbree days, and he may put in an
appearance now at any time.
Telegraphers May Strike
An Ottawa dispatch says it is possible but improbable tbat within a
few days the 1800 telegraph operators employed by the Canadian Pacific railway on its lines between the
two seaboards will be on strike because of tbe refusal of the company
io grant tbe 17 per cent increase in
wages with an eight hour day for
most of the operators and time and
a half for overtime^
The two sides of the question bave
been beard by a board of conciliation wbich made its award last Saturday and recommended a 6 per
cent increase without any other
concessions. J. G. O' Donoghue, tbe
representative of tbe men, refused
to sign tbe report and has submitted
a minority report to tbe department
of labor.

almost immediately, and gradually
the sores heal up and disappear. Here

sufferer from Salt Rheum for ten
years, and bad abont. despaired of
ever being cured, so mhny treat

wonderful cures effected by Dr,
Chase's Ointment, I commenced using
it, and was entirely cured by eight
boxes. I want to express my gratitude for Dr. Chase's Ointment, and to

Why, my wife's drove that horse ever

the gray has just gone down the

to get excited about. How's thc

A Double-Barreled Escape
- Miners are among the moat heroic

with, death. The result of this ls
that they are humorous ln their boldness.
ln one of the mines of Pennsylvania there was a cave-In which Imprisoned a miner named Jack Thornton. The "accident happened on Friday afternoon, and the fellow laborers of the entombed men set to work
at once to dig him out. It was not
until Sunday morning, however, that
they reached his prison chamber, and
by this time they were wondering
whether he had been suffocated or
starved to death. One of them
stuck his head through the aperture
made by the picks of the resucers
and called out:
Jack, aro you all right?
All right, came the reply, and then
after a pause, What day ls this?
Sunday, answered the friend.
Gee! exclaimed Jack. I'm glad of
that. That was one Saturday night
when those saloon keepers didn't get
my wages!

tlie examiner seized the watch, but
this time he devoted his attention to
the back of the case. Sure enough
there was a scrap ot paper Inside-

work in peace.

Twenty-one days weie bright,and four
dull days were recorded during the
month. A great variance ef temperature was experienced on the 4th, the
glass rising from 44° to 80° during
the day.
Fears were expressed that the egg
yield would suffer dniing the past
month owing to the Vancoiver exhibition being held on the grounds
From a perusal of the records, opposite
results were obtained, owing, no
doubt, to the fact that blaming was
discontinued during the exhibition
The egg yield was higher from August
13th to 20th than during the earlier
period of the month. During the first
day of the poultry show, the birds
.were greatly disturbed by the crowing

Rate of Growth Studied In Canada and
United States
The aspen poplar, frequently spoken of as tbe white poplar, is one of
j the most common trees all over Can-
I ada (at any rate ln that portion of
I the   Dominion   east   of   the   Rocky
Mountains).     In many parts ot the
Dominion it forms quite extensive forests (especially ln districts that have
been burned over).     ThiB fact gives
it a place of some Importance In the
forestry of the Dominion, although It
Is one ot the interior woods.
Some years ago (in 1906) the Forestry Blanch of the Department of
t'ie Interior made a careful survey of
the Turtle Mountain forest reserve ln
Southern Manitoba, on which, this
poplar Is by all odds the most plentiful tree. As a result of luvestlgatlon
on the basis of data collected during.
this survey, lt was estimated that. If
the poplar were allowed to grow to
the age of forty years, there would be
an average growth, for the whole of
that time, of one cord per year on a
fully stocked acre. At the end ot
that time there would be standing on
each acre about 850 trees, ot an average height of 45 feet and an average diameter, at i% teet above the
ground, of 6 inches; these wonld yield
some 40 cords of wood.
, Recently the United States Forest
Service published their Bulletin No.
93, entitled "The Aspens," and it ls
interesting to note that their results
come close to the flgnrea made out by
the Canadian survey. Volume tables
given at the conclusion ot this bulletin show that trees of the height, and
diameter given above will each yield
between one twentieth aud one twenty fifth of a cord of wood apiece. Thus
the 850 acres would give somewhere
between thirty-four and forty-two
cords of wood. The average of the
two amounts gives thirty-eight cords,
a figure nearly the same as that obtained by the Canadians.
As there are 55,t»00 acres In the
Turtle Mountain reserve that are capable of growing timber, lt is a reasonable inference that the reserve
may be counted on to produce 55.000
cords, or thereabouts, of wood per
year. At the low rate of $1 per cord
on the stump, this would mean an annual revenue to the state of $55,000.
Or, to take another point of view it
would give to each inhabitant of the
electorial district of Sourls almost
two cords of wood per year.

A Story Showing How a Small
Circumstance May Turn the
Scale of Advantage
A few yeara before the war between
Ihe stntes 1 was obliged to go from mj
northern home to South Carolina. I
was sitting ons evening In s cafe wltb
a friend when a discussion aross st s
table near me between sn elderly mun
■ud one wbo was, st least by comparison, youug. Ths latter bad been sitting alone at tbe tabls whsn ths formei
entered tbs cafe, stood at tb* entranci
looking about him, then walked with a
limp to wber* tb* otber was sitting
and, taking a chair, called tor a Julep.
' Neither spoke to tbe other, and It wai
•vldent they war* strangers.
But presently the older man address-
ed a remark to the younger, which led
to conversation. At that time th* pro
and sntl slavery parties wer* contend'
Ing, the one to make Kansas a tree, tht
•ther a slave slate. Xhe man wbo bad
entej-ed Inst began to Inveigh against
th* "border ruffians," aa they wen
called In the north, at tbe same tlmt
charging tbem wltb committing Innumerable crimes. I was rather sur<
prised nt this, since be spoke wltb s
distinct southern accent, though at thai
time the southern people wer* not united on the slavery question, Indeed wen
not united eveu after tbe war com
Tbe younger man took Issu* wltb his
neighbor, averring that the south bad
the right to carry tbelr Institutions Into
the new territories as well aa tbe north.
.Whereupon the other became violent
and abusive. The advocate of those
wbo were trying to mak* Kansas a
■Iar* state endeavored to withdraw
from the discussion, but his opponent
would not permit blm- Finally tbe latter, waxing wrothy, declared that ths
proslavery movement tn Kansas was
conceived Jn iniquity and any man wbo
advocated lt was a scoundrel.
The other's cheek burned, but he eon-
trolled blmtelt, whereupon bis opponent, wbo waa evidently disposed to
drive blm to the wall, said tbat a man
who bad sucb opinions nnd declined to
defend them was a coward. Tbls forced tbe younger man to resent the Insult offered him, and, drawing a card
from bis pocket, be banded It to bla
"I bnven't a cabd wltb me, suh," said
the challenged man, "but wltb yo' ps'-
mission I will writ* my name on tbe
back ot yo'a. 1 will send a friend to
yo' Immediately to arrange a meeling
at 4 o'clock tomorrow morning. I most
leave the city at 0 on impotent business."
"And I. sir," replied Ih* other, "hav*
an Important engagement In the early
morning wblcb will prevent my fighting you llll later."
"If yo' mean, suh, lo crawl out o' th*
affair 1 should be glad to know It now."
The goaded man, seeing me and my
friend sitting at another table witnessing tbls Imputation oo bis courage, said
coolly to his tormentor:
"Very well; since yon wish to be
killed before breakfast I will put off
my other engagement and kill you. I
will be at bom* for th* SM of th*
•venlng, when I shsll await tb* coming of your friend."
He arose from his chair snd went
out, leaving bis opponent In possession
ef the field.
II* bad uo sooner disappeared than
tb* man wbo had provoked blm beckoned to my friend Mortimer, wbo left
m* and went wltb blm to an unoccupied corner ot tbe room, and the two
beld a conference In a low tone. Wben
tt was over Mortimer returned lo me
and gar* m* a few word* of explanation. He ssld tbat h* was to b* tbe second In th* coming meeting of tbe mnn
wbom lit bad conferred with, Colonel
Rlngold. H* had commanded a regi*
ment of volunteers In tb* Vulcan war,
waa a plantar wbo owned alavea and a
aaan of high standing In th* community. Wby b* had provoked tbe man h*
bad sat wlth-Jerrold was hts name-
Mortimer did not say.
, ! bad a desire to se* th* *od of whnt
to m* was a very singular affair, and,
fortunately for my purpose, being a
physician, Mortimer agreed to take me
•wilh blm In th* capacity ot surgeon.
Meanwhile I wu to say nothing about
the matter. Colonel lilngold hnd not
given his tru* name, and bis opponent
did not know wbo h* was. Sine* Mortimer and I were the only persona betides th* principals and tb* colonel
(■would stay at bom* until be went to
th* ground tb* secret was not likely
to eome out
I confess I had been much prejudiced sgalnst Colonel lilngold tor fore-
lag s quarrel upon one wbo seemed
tn Inoffensive man.
TXen tblrk Jerrold in inoBtnslv*
man, do you?" said Mortimer. "Well,
1 will tell you about blm. B* Is on*
of those persons who grow np nnder
the dueling system-It Is rapidly dying
ont here In the south I am happy to
tay-wbo, having acquired great skill
with arms, conceive a passion for
making as many victims aa possible.
Re can kill tbe colonel If he wlsbes to
do ao, bnt Lsbsll use diplomacy to Induce blm fo be content to wing bla
enemy. There sre but two persons wbo
know wby tbe colonel Insulted him—
tbe colonel and myself. Jerrold does
aot know It; you do not know It, and
1 sball not Ull yon Ull tht affair Is
over. Tbe probability Is, bowsvsr, lhal
It will lead to another tight."
This fraction of a story left me more
puasled tban before. Indeed, my curiosity waa excited to such a pitch
thnt I did not sleep s wink during tbs
brief Interval before tbe meeting. I
was cnlled at II In the morning by
Mortimer and, with my case of surgical Instruments, entered a carriage
In waiting and drove to tbe ground.
Tbe colonel wns tbere, standing
alon* In the gray of th* morning. It
seemed to me that bis expression Indicated some special purpose, by which
be waa mucb moved. Since he knew
be was to meet a man who wns considered Invincible, be mnst hav* felt
he nld nothing. H* wu taken U Bis
carriage to a hospital, and t wu pleu-
ed to tear afterward Aat, after bavlng
recovered, tb* affair bad mad* a
changed man of Win. and ht had resolved never to fight another duel.
Mortimer, by bit diplomacy, as he
called It, saved the colonel's life. Wben
beating the colonel'* challenge b* prevailed upon Jerrold, for Jerrold'* own
good, to wound tbe colonel ln sucb a
way that ht could not continue tht
fight, for ht represented the colonel to
be sn obstinate and determined man,
wbo, once ln a fight would continue It
till he was put hort dt combat Jerrold, having another dutl on bud to
follow In tht wakt of tht flrst and
fearing to excltt antagonism sgslnsl
himself, ftll In with tht Idea. Mortimer suggested thst Jerrold, when con*
vlnced thnt bis enemy would kill blm
If be could, sbould break his leg so
that he could not stand upon It to continue the dgbt Mortimer knowing that
tins leg would be advanced and receive
tbe bullet and that that leg wat tbt

While I was regsrdlng blm a cap

and bla second and bis own surgeon.
Tbe colonel ta the challenged party
had chosen Derringer pistols, which
were nsed at tbat time In duels. The
seconds paced off the ground, and
since It was long before sunrise and
cloudy at that tbere was no toss np
for choice of position. Colonel lilngold
stood In one spot until hla second
placed him In the position trom which
he was to fight lt wna but a few
paces from where be stood, but I noticed wben he took tbem the same

He tben took a position midway between the two at tbe side ahd, holding
a handkerchief tn bis bsnd, dropped It.
Jerrold fired tn the air; the colonel's
bullet grazed bis adversary's sleeve.
To my surprise—Mortimer did not
appear to sbsre It—the colonel called
for another shot. Tbe two were sgaln
plsced In position, tbe signal given, and
two shots rang out Jerrold was unhurt: the colonel fell. I ran to him;
but getting np with difficulty, be motioned me to keep away. Standing as
firmly as before, he called for a third
If I was puzzled at seeing him fall
and thtn get up, bis sntagonlst was
amazed. Not a drop of blood was to
be seen, though bis trousers were torn.
Wben the two were standing waiting
for the next aignal I glanced at Jerrold and aaw at one* that something
was the matter with blm.
I have since thought that at the moment tbe aignal for the third shot was
.given Jerrold wis suffering from Indecision, ne bad gone on to tbe field
Intending''to wing bis advisory and
was now undecided whether to kill
him or not Indecision at a critical

fired Ull after he had received the colonel's bullet In bla lungs. Ills struck tbs
earth a few paces before him, be having pulled the trigger of his pistol spas,
modlcally with a bullet tn- him.
Jerrold's surgeon ran to him. 1, not
knowing nt Ibe time where Jerrold's
bullet hid gone, advanced toward the
colonel to see If he bad hecn hit. He
stood motionless, not appearing tn he
aware of my presence. Noticing the
tear In hla trousers and lifting the
cloth, I made tbe discovery that Mortimer bad cautioned me against bringing to the attention of others.
