Company,of New  York will build the last section of the  Kettle Valley Railway from the summit of the Hope range down the valley of the Coquehalla river to the  town of Hope on the Fraser river, a  distance of 3S miles. A contract will  be signed following the execution of  an agreement between the Kettle  Valley Company, the Great Northern  and its subsidiary company, the V., V.  & E. Railway Company, which owns  an almost continuous line of track  from Abbotsford, in the Lower Fraser  Valley, to Laurier, a point in the  Boundary district along the international boundary line.  The Coquehalla link, about to be  built, will be owned and operated by  the Kettle Valley Company, but the  V., V. & E. will have equal running  rights thereon as it is contributing a  share of the cost of construction. Below Hope the Kettle Valley will cross  the Fraser river on a steel bridge to  the opposite bank and there effect a  junction with the main line of the C.  P. It.

Kettle Valley line, Mr. Alexander  Stewart, assistant cheif engineer of  the Great Northern, and Mr. J. H.  Kennedy, chief engineer of the V. V.  & E. Railway, disclosed the fact 'that  the New York .company had submitted the lowest tender and it was  decided to recommend an award of a  contract accordingly. Mr. J. J., Warren, president of the Kettle Valley  Railway, presided at the joint conference.  ���������"Very H'eafy'Win** ->���������  The Coquehalla section, considering  its short length, .will probably be the  heaviest   railway   work   ever   undertaken in British Columbia. The thirty-  eight miles  of track;  will  cost,  it  is  estimated,   about   $3,000,000:     For   a  considerable distance the expenditure  will exceed $100,000 a mile.    In that  short  distance   no   less   than   twelve  tunnels will have to be driven.    It is  estimated   that   the   contractor's   will  have  to  invest  ?200,000  in  a  wagon  road along the route for the purpose  of getting in equipment and supplies.  Air. F. C. Hitchcock, vice-president  and  general   manager   of  MacArthur  Brothers   Company,  has   been  at the  Hotel   Vancouver   for    several   days  awaiting the result of the joint conference of the various railways interested in the undertaking.   He will lose  no time in organizing his forces and  making a  start at wagon road  construction  at both  ends  of the  route  simultaneously with the assembling of  grading outfits.   Camps will be established at short distance apart in order  to expedite the entire work. The early  completion of a thirteen-mile section  of the Kettle Valley line from Cold-  water Junction westward to the summit of the Hope Mountains by Messrs.  Twohy   Bros,    will   enable   the   New  York company to move in outfits by  rail.    Coldwater Junction, is the point  where will converge theKettle Valley  branch   line   from   Men-itt   in   Nicola  Valley,    there    connecting   with    the  Spcncos bridge extension of the C. P.  R.   to  Men-itt;   the  V..  V.  & E.  main  line from the Boundary and Okanogan  districts,   and   the   main   line   of. the  Kettle Valley line extending eastward  through the Similkameen and Okanogan to a connection with the C. P. R.  at Midway in  the Boundary  district.  The V.. V. & E. now operates a train  service from Princeton direct to Spokane, a- distance of over 300 miles.    It  will also -have running rights over flic 1  thirteen-mile   section   of   the   Kettle j  Valley  line   from   the   summit  of  the I  Hope   Mountains   to   Coldwater   June-j  tion. i  Finish "Xcxt lean I  j plored  by Air. Beam   and his  force, of  diamond   drillers    in   Camp   Clifton.  That Alessrs.  Alein  and  Stokes were  much   impressed  with what they saw  in the Nickel Plate   is well known and  the fact  that  they  went  lo  see  the  Kingston  is evidence that Air. Clabon  who holds a bond on the Kingston has  put  the proposition   up to a concern  that can  stand a. heavy  outlay for development-purposes, .without feeling it  and also a concern that is made up of  men  who are no strangers  to  Camp  Hedley and its splendid record.  ������������������...Th.e..Gyuiidia!j.'.-_.">,{*^.uiK.Aud....Explowi-,  tion  Company Limited was organized  in -May 1912 with a  capitalization   of  $5,000,000 consisting   of 1000 shares of  ,$5,000 each.     Of these 1000 shares, 500  have  heen issued,   realizing   in   cash  $2,500,000.       The annual income from  the investment of such asuni is enough  in itself to  accomplish   great   results  when wisely expended in investigating  and  examining  promising   properties  that may he submitted to them.    During the eight months  of 1912 they had  42S  properties  submitted   to .them of  which 2S5 were   in Canada, 110 in the  United States,  21 in Alexico, 0 in Central America,  -tin  South-America,   1  in   the  Malay States  and 1 in  South  Africa.     By the end of 1913 this number will  doubtless have increased several times  over and the chances of securing  among  them   n. few   bonanzas  very greatly  increased.     Among the  properties   receiving,   preliminary   inspection from them on   this trip was a  property    in    Fair-view     which    was  doubtless  the  Susie,   and  very likely  that  circumstance  accounts  for their  presence  in this vicinity at  this time.

ANOTHER DRILLING MATCH  PRESENTED  TO THE KING  Hon. Alartin Burreli. Federal minister of agriculture, who is now on  a trip to England, was presented to  King George a few days ago. On  Tuesday, with Finance Minister  White he attended the meeting of the  imperial defence committee, over  which Premier Asqnith presided.  It. promises to revolutionize transportation methods in that vast region,  placing tho coast merchant in direct,  communication with the Similkameen, Okanogan. Boundary and Koot-  enays and terminating the routing of  goods to those sections by the present  roundabout routes via Rev.elstokc and  Spokane.  MacArthur Bros.

The impression is general that  the railways  will not allow any information   regarding  wrecks   and. other  troubles of that- kind to get out if they  can help it, and in that respect a good  many of the publishers were disposed  to share the general impression.     Air.  Truufinan,   however,  did much to disabuse the minds of those  present Avho  may have thought so.    It .ivas not the  facts  relating   to   those   unfortunate  occurrences   that the railways did not  want to  have get out,   but it Avas the  things���������,that..wei-e  nofc-fact.s  thn t. hurt,  them  most  when cast, abroad  in the  public prints.    It is to avoid that kind  of thing  that he is  authorized  hy the  vice-president to go to the newspapermen ivhere assembled in their conventions    and   he   perfectly   frank   with  them.    AVhen they  wanted any information   from   the   C. P. R.   for  their  papers  on any  subject at all   which is  of  public interest  they   were  told  by  Mr.   Trautmah   where  to go  for-  the  facts.      Other  matters   were   brought  forward    by    Air.   Trautman  .which  made  it plain  to  the  newspapermen  who  listened   to him   that the C.P.R.  under    its   present ' government   and  management is not indifferent to public opinion but the   very contrary, and  all those who heard him we're impress-  by his  frankness  and  fairness.    This  circumstance   we believe   to be   of  interest to the  public to know and that  is why we   have referred   to it as fully  as we have.  Sessions were held on Friday which  took up the whole of the forenoon and  until 5:30 in the afternoon. Air. Ball  was re-elected president anil Air. Walker secretary-treasurer.

The first stop  made in the trip of inspection was the  new $(i().(l()() school building which is  practically completed and will he ready  for occupancy on the re-opening of  school after the holidays, [t is a handsome brick building of eight class-,  rooms with wide roomy corridors on !  the ground floor and large convoca-j  tion bail upstair.-, and all t he appoint-!  nii'iits I'or ventilation, healing, lire;  alarms, file e-capes etc. appear lo he j  the very latest and most effective!  methods.' j  Alain .St.recl.lhe leading thorough-  I'.ue, runs from Penticton straight  ���������southward to Dog Lake on which  there is. a fine beach and a stretch of  beautiful park land extending to tin-  shore, while orchards extend along the  benches to the east the entire distance  and also down the east side of the lake  I'or a piece.

Hedley was not allowed to have the  monopoly of the exitemeiit over drilling matches and cm Sunday evening  last another contest took place up at  the mine. We have not learned what  was the amount of the wager but the  contestants were Jack Trewelnh and  AV. Liddicoat, miners of the JVickel  Plate. The time allowed was 12 minutes for each.  The  one   man    Stevens   sharpened  the  steel   for    both.     Billy   Trimble  turned    for   Liddicoat     and     Yorky  turned for Treweluh.    The rock was a  dark gray granite of much  the same  texture as that used in Hedley and as  all the steel stood without any breakages the conditions were about as even  as they could very well.be.    The. winner was Trewelah   who put down  a.  hole 2d. 7-10 inches deep while his op-  poiinent drilled 22. 5-10.   He "'has    fig-'  ured in other contests both here and in  Rossland and if he   keeps  in  training  until Labor Day and is careful to avoid  all excesses between now and then and  has a good partner to help him out, he  stand a   very good   chance  of  finishing pretty near the top on that occasion, for that 26 odd inches was  a  t'dy  pei forma nee  for'12  minutes   drilling-  straight aw������v.    1  DALTON-LINGDREN  The following paragraph taken from  the social and personal page, of the  ATancouver Province will be read with  special interest in Hedley.

That at all events  has frequently proven to be so, and We  need   not  go any farther for  an   example  than in   the case  of a   mine in  the Similkameen   riding which enjoys  the  distinction of being the first lode  gold mine  in British Columbia to pay  regular dividends.    The mine referred  to was the Cariboo in Camp McKinney.  '   It    Avas   in   1893   when   times   where  shockingly, bad in  the   United States  and not as good in Canada as could be  desired,   the   owners   of the   Cariboo  who   were   Spokane men were pretty  hard  up  financially.     Believing  that  the   Cariboo   would pull  them  out if  they  could   realize on a  litttle of the  gold that they knew to be in the property, they bought a second-hand stamp  mill on credit and got together a crew  of  miners   who   were   told  that  they  were to  get no pay if it did not come  out of  the  ore.    The  merchants furnished   supplies   on  pretty  much  the  same kind of layout.     The ten stamps  were taken in over the snow, there being no roads at that time, arid without  a  building  over  them   to  shelter the  batteries, the stamps began to drop in  April  1S!)1 on   rich surface rock and a  few   months  run  put them  all out of  their  troubles.    The  property turned  out $1,7000,000 in bullion before it was  shut down and   paid about $500,000 of  it in dividends.  There  is  not  lacking  the  evidence-  that money  is available  today for the  development of  promising   prospects  if the  owners  will only   listen  to reason.    Alen who understand mining and  have   money  to   invest   in   improved  properties are prepared to take a risk;  but no   more  risk  than   is   necessary,  and they require the moneyless owner  to take a  little of the risk an well.    It  It is useless to expect that any mining  investors  who  know  what  they   are  doing and  what they can do, will pay  out   cash   for  the   mere   privilege  of  spending a lot more money on a property   that   may not he Avorth  a bean.  Alining  investors  do not do   business  in that Avay any more,   and the camps  that are   long  in  opening up  are the  ones where the  majority of promising  claims are  held by  men Avho have no  money  to work   with;   no stomach   to  work  themselves  without it,   and no  sense  to  see that itAvill   he   to  their  own   interest to  give all   the   time re-  Continued from Page one.  altogether different appearaece. There  are on the benches themselves no less  than three main roads running north  and south and fruit farms all planted  lo orchards stretching (iff on either  side and on them are handsome comfortable residences showing that the  owners have settled down to fruit  growinir as their ..avocation. So rapid  has been the growth of tliese trees,  none, of .which are. more than eight  years' old, that in ninny cases it is  difficult to see the houses embowered  among the trees loaded down with  their wealth of fruit. The orchards on  these benches between Dog Lake and  Okanagan Lake do not stop at Penticton as we go northward but extend past Penticton for about four or  five miles more on the. way to Nane  malta.  The ground obtained for golf links-  was passed on the way but the course  has not'yet been laid out.  The line of the Kettle Valley Railway, traverses this part of tin-, bench  but. is lower down than most of the  orchards.  ;."

Mutch, the president of  the Board, occupied the chair and  after a dainty banquet which did  credit to the cuisine of the Incola had  been partaken of, he bade the visitors  a hearty welcome in a neat speech  Avhich was in good taste and marked  by sound sense.  He called on the newspapermen in  turn and elicited from each their appreciation of the kindness which had  been extended and the honor done  them, ;ts well as expressions of surprise and admiration at the evidences  of advancement in the town audits  surroundings, the editors of the En-  derby Press and the Keloivna Courier  being particularly felicitous. Here  also Air. Truutmaii shone to good advantage and gave the guests some  very good ideas to carry away.  With a live progressive organization like the Board of Trade to look  after their interests it is not much  wonder that the town of Penticton  has thriven as it has.  Investigations carried on by the  Forestry Branch of the Dominion Government have- proven conclusively  that several large herds of wild buffalo are still to be found in the hilly  country on the northern boundary of  Alberta, in the neighborhood' of the  Slave river. A party Avorking under  the direction of Mr. A. J. Bell, the  government agent at Fort Smith, made  a study of the habits and obtained  photographs of these buffalo, Avhich  are identical in appearance Avith the  former buffalo,of the plains, the remnants of which Avere forced to seek  shelter in the timbered fastnesses of  the north. ...  These wood-buffalo when fully  grown are able to defend themselves  against their natural enemies, but in  the winter before the young yearlings  have attained full "strength.'they frequently fall victims to the timber  wolves. Bands of these Avolves hover  around the flanks of the buffalo herds  as they pass in single file from one  feeding ground to another, waiting for  the opportunity to cut off a young animal and..drive ..it from the beaten trail  into the deep snoAv, Avhere ft is unable  either to escape or to defend itself.  Partly eaten carcasses are found  by the investigating party which clearly indicated thac-the wolves Avere the  cause. These grey timber wolves are  of large size and-are very numerous  in this region where they menace the  existence, not only of the wood-buffalo, but of other game as well.- The  Dominion government already offers  a bounty of twenty dollars apiece for  their destruction;, but so sparsely inhabited is the region and, so clever  are the Avolves in avoiding traps, that  the present bounty has had little effect in reducing their numbers.; It is  possible that the Dominion government will raise the bounty'diere to  forty dollars in the hope of ridding  the regions of these pests,,and of pre-  ventingthe extinction of the last Avild  bison in existence.

The bridge which they-,  were building there, over the Tulameen  is Hearing completion and will be  finished in about a week'.  . Rev. E. K. Bartlett, foi-mely  Anglican pastor at Hedley, figures  prominently in the , cricket matches  down at the coast Avhere he played  for the New Westminster team and  could be counted on for- a substantial  score.  If a. man is sufficiently industrious  in his search I'or trouble he can  generally count on finding some. Jim  Grant, a farmer in the Mar-ton  valley after a dilligent hunt for that  commodity mid running his head up  against all and sundry, is at present  engaged entertaining the sheriff on  his pi eniises.  Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Dalton arrived  in Hedley on Saturday from Penticton  Avhere they had been stopping for a  few days at the Hotel Incola and enjoying the cool breezes from Okanagan  Lake. Mr. Dalton has heen receiving  the warm congratulations of his  friends in Hedley since his return.  The; Gazette offers warmest congratulations; ������������������..'-,.'������������������  The Avork of renovating and fixing  up the Methodist church began last  Aveek and will be completed in about a  week or ten days more. The work is  being done, by Mr. Beale and Mr.  Stephenson. The partition at the  "back has been taken out and the Avails  and ceilings are being papered and the  AA'Oodwork painted. The outside, will  also come in.for some attention and a  general improvement effected.  The new teacher for the junior department of the Hedley school is Miss  Nettie Walker of London, Out., who  taught last at Banff in Alberta. She  has had six years experience in teaching, one of which Avas in a, high school  in Ontario, and holds first-class nonprofessional certificate in all the provinces. She is also qualified to teach  singing and the Board .-ire satisfied  that they have been fortunate in securing her services.  A terrific wind which appeared to  come down Twenty-mile disturbed a  good many from their slumbers on  Thursday night last. Those along  Kingstom Avenue scarcely felt it at  \ all, but Ellis and Cawston streets and  the eastern part of the town surely did.  The chairs from the church which  Avere piled up on the platform outside  during the progress of renovation  | proved tempting playthings to the  Avind and were scattered about the lot.  The musical part of the church work  which has for' some time made a  marked improvement in the services  continues to draw, larger congregations. There is now a good choir of  eighteen voices and in some instances  rare musical talent is displayed. They  have been practising for some time  and it is the intention to give something special on Sunday 2-1 th inst., in  connection Avith the re-opening of the  church, with a conceit on the Monday  evening following.  There are all kinds of hogs and the  time hog ivho cares nothing about the  time he wastes for other people is one  of the most exasperating. ���������,One of  these, a drummer'from a Vancouver  house, kept six other people waiting  for 40 minutes on him. Six times -10  minutes makes four hours which he  xpected the others to give for his sole  benefit and maintain their serenity,  And when he. had finished and leisurely mounted to his place on the auto  there was nothing, in the shape of  apology from him, nor even a gleam  of gratitude towards anybody seen to  float across his porcine visage.  Mrs. S. E. Hamilton and baby  Wallace left for Vernon on Thursday.  Miss Blake of Victoria Avho formerly  taught in Hedley has been engaged to  teach in Princeton. The Princeton  School Board are to be congratulated  on securing her services. When here  some four years ago or more, she was  then teaching on a third-class certificate but she has since obtained higher-  grade and had a normal school training. As a teacher she did excellent-  work here in Hedley and with the pur  fessional training she has since received as well as experience gained, she  should prove an acquisition to the  staff.  Kerenieos peaches are coming on  nicely and larger quantities of ripe  ones are being shipped out day by day.  Kootenay and Boundary are taking  about all they can supply and it is  difficult, to get any here in the valley. Last week when coming through  Keremeos the editor was presented  by Mr. ��������� Donald ��������� McCalhim with a  box of beauties grown in his orchard.  They were all of them perfect beauties  ���������ripe, large and luscious. Some  of. those weighed after we reached  home, went nine ounces and there  were doubtless many more that would  go over -that. Mr. McOalluin rather  modestly requested that no mention  be made of them, but loyalty to the  valley and the fruit it can produce  makes us loth to deprive it of the  credit which is due, and Mr. McCulhim  has our hearty thanks for the toothsome gift.  The auto route from Kerenieos to  Penticton is all the while growing in  popularity and a considerable volume  of the passenger tiafh'c between the  Similkameen and the coast now goes  over the C.P.R. from Penticton because of it. The excellent roads and  the efficient auto service contribute  their share.to the general result and  another thing 'which counts is the fact  that the C. P. R'Mooks more carefully  after the comfort of its patrons and  can land them in Vancouver i.itS.35  a. m. while those going over the Great  Northern and having to submit to the  Oroville layover do not get there until  four o'clock in the. afternoon. Those  who are going to Victoria lose almost  a day by going over the. Great Northern as the C.P.R. lands its passengers  in.:Vancouver in time to catch the  morning boat for Victoria. The'tiuie  taken for the run from Kerenieos to  Penticton .by the seven passenger-  Cadillac car of Tweddle's auto line  /driven by Gordon Pyne rarely if ever  exceeds an hour and forty-five minutes  and it is not an uncommon thing for  him to cut 20 minutes off that time.  Two  charges  for   violation   of   the  Liquor   Licence   Act   were    laid    by  Constable     Pritchard     against      the  Hotel    Similkameen.      The    offences  were commited on July 81st. and  consisted  in   having' his   blinds  down so  that a clear voiw of the interior- of the  bar was obstructed, and in permitting  liquor  to  be drunk on   the    premies  after 11 o'clock at night.    The charges  came  up for   hearing   on    Saturday  before A. Megraw and  resulted  in  a  fine of $25.00 and costs for each  offence.    The conviction was for  a  first  offence    and    the    defendant    erred  through   lack   of  understanding   the  requirements of  the  law.     It  is   the  first    conviction   of    a    licensee    for  violation of   the  Liquor  Licence  Act  which has taken place in HedleAr since  a licence was  first granted   here, and  that   circumstance   influenced    to   a<  great extent in   making   the   fine  less  than is generally given   in  like  cases.  It,   may  seem  strange   that  men   engaged in any line  of  business  should  not be  conversant   with  the  law  relating  to   that   business,    but nevertheless   it   is   so,   and   there    is    no  reason to think that this is altogether  an   isolated  case.     The   liquor  law  is  continually   being   changed   and   the  policy  of  the  Attorney-general's   department with  reference  to distributing of the statutes would seem   as   if  the object was to  keep   the  public  in  ignorance of changes in the law rather  than to give them Avaruing.

Hedley Miners' Union has taken  hold of the Labor Day Celebration  with a. vim and are presenting an in-  toscstiiig programme. Of course it  was not to be expected that every arrangement made would meet the approval of all, and we understand that  the lacrosse team of .Kerenieos weie  displeased that no provision was announced for a lacrosse match. it  happens that lacrosse is the only game  played this year in Keremeos and  Princeton and the devotees of the  game in these places were disposed to  see in it a studied plan to shut them  out, but that is rather a morbid conclusion that is scarcely warranted under the circumstances and the reprisal  talked of���������to take their team through  to Princeton that day .and play a lacrosse match in Princeton���������-is something which we hope theiy will think  better of, for,*things done out of pique  never in the long run afford much  satisfaction to anybody. For years in  this valley Hedley was the only place  where there was organized labor to  whom Labor- day meant anything, but  now the operations at Copper Mountain have changed that, and when the  celebration is run this year by the  Union it is but natural that the sports  which are most popular among the  members in Hedley and Copper Mountain should be given the most prominence. Neither is it fully settled that  there is lo be no lacrosse and arrangements for a game may yet be made.  The Union has taken hold of the  sports arrangements with commendable energy and townspeople arc ready  to render whatever assistance may be  required of them.  X  "If It   Isn't an  Eastman.

Andeison and party of Victoria arrived in town Sunday after having  made the trip from the coast via Spokane. They were returning there by  way of the Nicola. Valley. They are  just out on a pleasure trip and say  they have had fine weatherall through  and seen some most enjoyable sights  on their way.  On Tuesday afternoon of last week  there was an unusual storm struck  part of the lower valley. Torrents of  rain fell doing serious damage to roads,  fences and gardens. Fences were  overturned just below Joe Armstrong'.--, on the Armstrong Ferry  road, by a rush of: Avater as it came  down the mountain side. It iva.shed  out gardens and rendered about a mile  of road completely impassible for  wheel traffic. This rain storm was  immediately folloAved by a hail storm  which heat down hay and grain in its  course  making a. swath  about a mile  wide. It directed its course across the  valley about half a'mile below Man-  cry's, R. J. McCiirdy's road gang had  to suspend regular work and put in  three days clearing up the damage. ;>.  Mr. and Mrs. Richardson and Mr.  and Mrs. Steven's of Sunimerland drove  over Sunday, paying Mr. J: A. Brown  a visit, and also driving through to  Hedley from where they returned  Monday. The year before last Mr.  Stevens made, a few. car shipments of  apples to Australia,, and last year he  increased his orders considerably, and:  this year he hopes to do likewise, and  put a .large quantity of Similkaineen  apples in the Antipodes. Mcintosh  Reds, Wealthys and Jonathans, will  be the most ''acceptable' as these  apples are now well known for looks,  flavor'and splendid keeping qualities,  and as there is a considerable quantity  of these'grown here, it will be of  great benefit to many of the. growers  to get in on this market. 'Mr. Stevens  who is an ��������� interested grower at Sumnierland had the pleasure of being  shown round the orchards in the district and thought' after seeing them  that they were in fine shape and quite  a little further'advanced't,han- in the  other districts, especially with regard  to the peach crop.  STANDARD FRUIT BOXES  During July the inspectors of the  department of agriculture, headed  by Chief Inspector L. G. Clarke, were  strictly enforcing the law with r?spcct  to the use of standard sir.o. fruit  boxes.  The standaid Canadian box is a-1-5  quart, .">(>..*) cubic inches, or 2.5 quart.  27"75 cubic inches. During the early  part of the season when only California fruit was olYering. the inspectors were disposed to take a lenient  view of the matlei, but .is our fruit  came on the market, the "short"  boxes from south of the line iveie  promptly dealt Avitli. Puyullup dealers are perturbed over the adoption  of a similar law in Chicago. The  Washington state legislature at 'its  last session passed similar legislation,'  but although it was intended to come  into effect at once, it was found that  to prevent hardship it would have to be  suspended until the first of the year.  'The dealers had ahoudy stocked up  with smaller boxes.  THK DISTKICT FRUIT CROP.  Production   "May  "Sot Reach   That  of  1!M2 lint ''Quality is Better and  More   Will  Be.'���������Marketed.''  A writer from Penticton dealing  Avith the crop prospects in the Vancouver Province says:  "For the past month plenty of sunlight lias given color and flavor to the  various fruits that Avere given ample  opportunity to develop earlier in. the  year by the exceptionally moist condition of the soil, caused by a rainfall  heavier than that recorded in any  previous year in the dry belt. It. may  be mentioned in this connection that  in June nearly four inches of rain fell,  a precipitation Avhich is almost exactly three times as great as in 1907,  the year of the heaviest rainfall previous to the present -season. The  heavy rainfall has been a great boon  to the growers, who are saved the  trouble of much irrigation as a consequence.  The estimated crop which is to come  from the entire lake district of the  valley has been placed at 800 carloads,  to be draAvn from the following districts in approximately the proportions given: Penticton, 126 carloads;  Vernon, 250; KelOAvna, 255; Peach-  land, 50;  and Sunimerland 120.  The above estimate does not include  the amount of fruit consumed locally  in the various districts, nor does it  take into consideration the extreme  northerly conservative one as far as  marketing is concerned, as numerous  small districts such as Kaleden, and  small bench tracts at points along the  lake, will probably make up 150 or  200 carloads of different fruits, bringing the total production for the lake  district in the A-alley for market to  1000 carloads, the greater amount of  Avhich will be composed of peaches.  Frosts Did Lidle Iliiriu.  The heavy frosts which obtained in  the valley early in May did very little  damage, contrary to erroneous reports  published at that time. A percentage  of the early peaches were damaged,  and the blooms of the pear trees and  cherry trees were touched to an extent in certain sections. These frosts  left Penticton, Kelowna, I'enchhind  and Vernon practically untouched,  but if is understood (hat some slight  damage was done in the vicinity of  Sumnierland. at Kaleden, and in several isolated orchards on Shingle  creek, near Penticton."  FIND  THE SINNER  Dairymen in Fairness to Customers  and  for Their Own Profit Should  Keep Close Tab  When a disastrous raihvay accident  occurs the whole trend of the enquiry  is to ascertain the cause, so that  measures may be taken to preA-ent a  recurrence of the Avreck. If a fault  is noticed in any -workshop is not the  particular delinquent sought out?  Every traveler on a steamer pays passage money; the several branches in a  department store are all expected to  show a profit on the year's business.  So the dairy farmer Avill do Avell to  enquire as to Avhether he has any  delinquents in his present herd of  cows, perhaps one or two are in a fair  way to Avreck his fortunes, their passage money may be paid by some better producers, for often two or three  out of every herd of twenty cows sIioav  no profit at all on the year's production of fat.  Plenty of cows in June and July  gave over one thousand pounds of  milk and over thirty-five pounds of  fat. What dairyman would A-oluntar-  ily keep the kind of cows that yielded only tAventy-four pounds of milk  during last month? Yet some men got  only that much from a great many  cows in Ontario and Quebec. This is  the point: Each dairy coav has a certain responsibility, that of producing  plenty of milk and fat at a profit. So,  also, has the dairyman his responsibility, that of knoAving his cows do not  shirk theirs. His business is to know  Avhat each cow does; she Avon't tell,  he has to keep individual records to  find out. They cost little, they do  much.
