The air of reproach with winch a  section of the Uniteil States Press,  aided by the sillier element of the  Canadian Liberal press speak of the  result of the Canadian election is  amusing, but the butter class of paper's  in the United States regard it differently.  Flour increasing 30 cents per barrel  in the United States and wheat going  lrp G to 8 cents per bushel as the result  of the election was quoted as evidence  (if Canada's mortal offence against the  poor, and the silly dupes never stopped to consider, that while Cannula's  tariff wall is only 35 per cent, that of  the United States is 75 per cent.  Canada is therefore not responsible  for.any of the ills suffered by the poor  of the United States. If high protection - is the cause of their ills they  should look to that tariff wall of their  own and never mind Canada's end of  it. ��������� ���������  How the fairer papers look at it  may be seen in the following  The New York Evening Post, for  example, remarks that another- thing  writ large in the Canadian elections  "is the final collapse of the Republican  pretence that the exactions and in jus  tices of a protective tariff can be tempered by reciprocity. For years we  have had this preached to us * * SoiireT  how reciprocity was to be a kind of  salve to put on the high tariIf bruise.  Brrt in this supreme test of that theory  rt has failed utterly. The country now  sees that in the mingling of outrageous  tariff taxes with reciprocity what we  finally get is no reciprocity and only  an acceleration, of the outrage." Even  if reciprocity had been ������������������'acceptable on  other grounds, the decision of the  Canadian people, in 'support of the  principle of non-intervention in United States internal politics, is in all respects to be commended.  The Rochester, N. Y., Union-.and  Advertiser' says that "having canrnrit-  ted himself wholly to the standpnt  tariff policy, it is .clear that President  Taft has utterly failed to make his administration meet the crying need of  the time, the need of relief from the  A GOOD CROP  Its Effect Will  Be  Beneficial   to   This  Province.  FATAL ACCIDENT  Columbian  In the 'overshadowing  interest   of  the  election   contest,   the   people   of  British Columbia have lost touch with  the harvesting  progress in the prairie  wheat country,    Jt is pleasing to state  that in spite of late frosts and  other  injurious elements the quantity, if not  the  quality, will be up to the present  harvest expectations.     The Winnipeg  'Commercial,  orre of the most careful  authorities  on crop production   in the  West now looks for a. total wheat output of 180,000,000 bushels in the three  provinces.    The  grade will   be, it predicts,  Noi  2 and  No. 3 norther 11,  al  though   there has  been a considerable  percentage of No". 1 northern irr-th'i inspections- upr- to  September 10.     The  indications are that prices will be high  and  with tins  there will   be arr   enormous amount of money placed in circulation.  The prairies prosperous, British Columbia will find good times continuing  since in this, in many respects, newer  land the prairie, farmer* and the successful prairie business man seek investments or opportunities for profit  able enterprise, while the more congenial climate will always draw population and with it capital from the  Northwest.  George Burnell is Killed at Fairview  ���������Fell Off Load of Hay   .  .Word hasjnsD reached us as we go  to press of a fatal accident at Fair-  view. George Burnell was driving in  with a. load of hay and in going down  a hill the brake gave out and the load  was precipitated on the horses. Burnell who was driving fell tiff irr front  of the wagon and the load went oyer  him. The accident'occurred on Tuesday afternoon.  Dr. "White was summoned from Penticton and did all he could for the in-'  jured  man, but  the injuries  were too  great and he died on'Wednesday at  noon.  . The bereaved faniily have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in the  Okanagan and Siinilkaineeii where'  deceased was known aird highly esteemed.

Reciprocity with Canada'would-not  have met the demands of the country  irr this respect, but rt- would have helped arrd it would have .encouraged.the  hope of better things to"come. With  reciprocity laid in the dust, there is  nothing to expect from the Republican  party." Thrs of course, again confirms  the view that the president sought  through reciprocity to offer a palliative, rrot a remedy, for the nigh tariff  inrposed by the Republican party,  which averages 75 per cent, against  the Canadian average, of 35 per cent.  Judged by United States standards,  Canada's tariff is moderate. By rejecting the reciprocity pact the Canadian people retain tlreir exclusive and  uncontrolled right to adapt the national policy to suit.themselves.

The most vigorous campaign against  forest fires ever waged by the Provincial Government is drawing to a close,  and within the next few weeks full  reports will be presented by the divisional superintendents of the fire protection areas.  "���������We have had practically every  timbered district of the province patrolled," Mr. W. C. Gladwin, super-  vistor of the department, said. "A  most thorough system of patrolling  was in.-tituteil at the comnienrenicnt  of the past summer. Over- 125 men  were employed, arrd, viewed from the  priilecliiiii point, of view, the efforts  of the government have been crowned  with success. Many dangerous fires  have been, if I may be permitted to  use tin; phrase, nipped in the hud, and  there can be no doubt that the .-ystein  of patroling adopted has saved much  valuable timber. September, however,  is often a red letter month for forest  fires, and all patrols, especially irr the  interior, are still exercising the greatest vigilance."  Some of  the   Liberal papers   which  are   so    fulsome   in   tlreir   praise   of  Lairrrer's imperialism and are so cocksure of his love of Britain and British  institutions should try to inform themselves a little more fully of his public  expressions  orr   that score   and   they  will  see whether  his  pet phrases in  Britain  and before;  Ontario audiences  when-after-their- votes, will square up  with   his sentiments   at other-'time's  when  he  thinks  that a.  little, capital  can be made by taking the other tack.  Here  is arr  opinion  of British  diplomacy which is   directly   opposite to  that  expressed  in his hearing  by A.  B.  Aylesworth   on  .the--floor .of  the  House.     In   speaking   at   a  banquet  given by the Canadian Manufacturers'  Association    he   is   reported   by   the  Toronto Globe in 1907 as having said:  "We take the  record  of the diplomats of Great Britain in so far as Canada is concerned and there is ci record  of a repetition of the sacrifice of Canadian   interests.    We have suffered on  the Atlantic; we have suffered on the  Pacific; we have suffered on the Great  Lakes;   we   have   suffered   wherever  there   has  been a question  discussed  between British diplorrrats and foreign  diplomats,  arrd we  have come at last  to  the opinion on   this point  that in  our -relations  with  foreign  countries  it will be better to attend to our business ourselves."

Irr   hugging Sir- Wilfrid Laurier  to  forgo the suicidal leap  of reciprocity  it  was   poirrted   orrt  to   him   by   orre  speaker* after another  that if Canada  would only wait a little bit the Democrats  irr   the  United   States  would of  therrrselyes give to Canada all the ad- >  vantages of the so-called larger market which advocates of the pact claimed would   be  secured   by  it      It   was  hardly  expected,   however,   that  the  proof of this would come so sooir, but  it has.   Already prominent Democrats  have stated that in ordoi    to cheapen  living in the United States a lowering  of the   tariff is inevitable.    Even the  Hearst papers are, turning orr Taft and  ���������joining  in-the'-'general  condemnation  of. him and blaming  him for failure, to .  effect  a revision  of the   tariff downward arid take off the duties on many,  of   the   necessities  for  the   working  classes.  The Democrats are more strongly  pledged to this course, arrd since the  action -of Canada, 'they are more pronounced in their- determination in  that direction. Taft has apparently  shot his bolt and the ''Democrats who  are now in control of the House of  Representatives are. practically sure  of electing the. next president.  A Washington despatch' to the Toronto Globe states that the defeat of  reciprocity means a redoubled effort  on the part of the Democratic, party  and the insurgent republicans, who  together control-Congress, to.-bring-  about a general-reduction of the'tariff.  ���������Reference is made to President Taft's  expressed hope irr presenting reciprocity to Congress, that reciprocity;'  would reduce the cost of living in the  Republic.  Tariff reduction is inevitable in the  United States.- Canada, secure in its-  prosperity arrd fiscal independence,  can with equanimity look upon President Taft's efforts at- working out the  salvation of'hrs party.

As a result of this decision John  Redmond is now organizing a gigantic, home rule campaign throughout  Great Britain this autumn with, the  idea of educating the public to the  real meaning of home rule with special stress 011 the point that there is  nothing irr the nature of separation..

Y.,  Union arrd  Advertiser says that "having cannrrit-  ted   himself wholly  to   the  standpnt  tariff policy, it is.7.clear that President  Taft has utterly failed to make his administration meet the crying need of  the  time, the need of relief from the  heavv  burden of the cost of living.  Reciprocity  with  Canada -would-not  have met the demands of the country  in this respect, but it would have helped and it  would have, encouraged the  hope of better things to conre.      With  reciprocity laid in the dust,   there is  nothing to expect from the Republican  party." This of course,.again confirms  the  view  that the   president sought  through  reciprocity  to offer a palliative, not a remedy, for the nigh tariff  imposed    by  the   Republican   party,  which  averages 75 per cent,  against  the  Canadian averageof 35 per cent.  Judged  by  United States  standards,  Canada's tariff is moderate.   By rejecting the reciprocity  pact the Canadian people retain their exclusive and  uncontrolled right to adapt the national policy to suit themselves.  Columbian  Irr  the   overshadowing  interest   of  the election   contest,   the   people   of  British Columbia have lost touch with  the harvesting progress in the prairie  wheat country,   It is pleasing to state  tlrat in spite, of late frosts and  other  injurious elements the quantity, if not  the  quality, will be up to the present  harvest expectations.     The Winnipeg  Commercial,   one of the most careful  authorities   on crop production   inthe  West now looks for a total wheat output of 180,000,000 bushels in the three  provinces,.    The grade will  be, it predicts,  No.  2 and No. 3 norther rr,   al  though  there-has been a considerable  percentage of No. 1 northern in-th'i inspections' up  to September 10.     The  indications are that prices will be high  and  with this  there will   be arr   enormous amount of money placed in cir  dilation.  The prairies prosperous, British Columbia will find good times continuing  since in this, in many respects, newer  land the prairie farmer and the successful prairie business rrrarr seek investments or opportunities, for profit  able enterprise, while the more congenial climate.'will always draw papulation and with it capital from the  Northwest.

Here is arr  opinion of British  diplomacy which  is  directly "opposite to  that expressed  in his  hearing by A.  B.  Aylesworth   on the floor-  of   the  House.     In   speaking   at   a  banquet  given by the Canadian Manufacturers'  Association   he   is  reported   by   the  Toronto  Globe in 1907 as having said:  "We  take the  record of  tlie diplomats of Great Britain in so far as Canada is concerned arrd there is a record  of a repetition of the sacrifice of Canadian interests.    We have suffered oh  the Atlantic; we have suffered on the  Pacific; we have suffered on the Great  Lakes;   we   have   suffered   wherever  there has.been a question, discussed  between British diplomats and foreign  diplomats, and wo have come at last  to   the opinion on   tlris( point" that in  our -relations  with foreign  countries  it will be better to atterrd to our business ourselves."

The most vigorous campaign against  forest fires ever waged by the Provincial Government is drawing to a close,  and within the next few weeks full  reports will be presented by the divisional superintendents <>f Lhe fire protection areas.  "���������We have had practically every  timbered district of the province patrolled,'' Mr-, W. C. Gladwin, super-  vistor of the department, said. "A  most thorough system of patrolling  was instituted at the commencement  of the past summer. Over 125 men  were employed, and, viewed from the  protection point of view, the efforts  of the. government have been crowned  with success. Many dangerous fires  have been, if I may be permitted to  use tin; phrase, nipped in the bud, and  there can be no doubt that the system  of patroling adopted has saved, much  valuable timber, September, however,  is often a red letter month for'forest  fires, arrd all patrols, especially in the  interior, are still exercising the greatest vigilance."

Already prominent Democrats  have stated that in ordei to cheapen  living in the United States a lowering  of the tariff'is inevitable. rCven the  Hearst papers are turning on Taft and  joining in the general condemnation  of him and blaming hinr for failure, to  effect a revision of the tariff downward arrd take off the drrties orr many  of tlie necessities for the working  classes.  The Democrats are more strongly  pledged to this course, arrd since the  action -of Canada they are more pronounced in their determination, in  that direction. Taft has apparently  shot his bolt and the Democrats who  are now in control of the House of  Representatives are practically sure  of electing the next president.  A Washington despatch to the Toronto Globe states that the defeat of  reciprocity means a. redoubled effort  on the part of the Democratic party  and the insurgent republicans,^ who  together control Congress, to bring  about a general reduction of the tariff.  ���������Reference is made .to President Taft's  expressed hope in presenting reciprocity to Congress, that reciprocity  would reduce the cost of living in the  Republic.  Tariff reduction is inevitable in the  LTnited States. Canada, secure in it*  prosperity arrd fiscal independence,  can with equanimity look upon President Taft's efforts at working out the  salvation of his party.

Sept. 20.���������Internal dissension in his cabinet has driven Premier  Asqiiitli to decide that a general election must be fought on tho Home Rule-  Bill before there is any possibility of  successfully passing it into la.w. The  bill will be introduced in the House of  Commons next April and after a preliminary discussion has taken place  Parliament will be dissolved, the fight  being waged entirely on the Irish  question.  As a result of this decision John  Redmond is now organizing a gigantic home rule campaign throughout  Great Britain this autumn with the  idea of educating the public to the  real meaning of home rule with special stress on the point that there is  nothing inthe nature of separation..  On the government side, Lloyd George  and Winston Churchill will conduct  a similar fight.  For this reason neither Redmond  nor T. P. O'Connor will .accompany  Daniel Boyle in his fund l'aising campaign throughout the United States,  this year. Their presence is too urgently needed at home.

Should  Asquitb again practice the same obstinacy and go to the country on  Home Rule as im issue be will do Canada and the empire an injustice by  side-tracking tariff' reform and imperial preference.  The untrammelled voice of the  people can never be obtained in either  Great Britain or Canada by submitting a question where the life of an  administration is involved in the result, for then party .prejudice., will  dominate. A referendum and not a  pretence of one, is what the people  should have, arrd they should be sat  isfied with nothing short of it.   ."'  REFERENDUMS  The referendum  bids fair to become  a factor in the British constitution and  in-those'.of her self-governing colonies.  Two great .questhins' are. at the present moment about to be submitted to  the people   before legislative action is  .   taken.     These are the the Irish Home  7 Rule question in Britain and the naval  question   in Canada,   although   it   is  more likely  that  the  form in   which  Home Rule may  be. submitted  to the  electors will-not be a straight referendum lint.-is an issue in a  general election, which  irr a. great,   measure tends  to  nullify the real spirit of  the. referendum and defeat the object aimed at.  The real spirit  underlying representative government is the  people's  will  and no gov!-'ri)iii;;nt  under the Biitish  conslii-itioii  should arrogate  to itself  the'right to   legislate  on   vital questions   without a  mandate   from   the  people. Citizens of Canada, have never  yet  had   air   opportunity  to   express  their wishes in   reference to Canada's  obligation    towards   maintenance   of  the empire's  naval  strength,   and   if  Premier Borden should decide to srive  the country arr   opportunity to speak  before be commits it to airy naval programme,   he will   prove himself a safe  constitutional ruler and worthy   the  confidence   the  people have  placed in  hinr.  The referendum   will  always be an  object of mistrust to an autocrat, arrd  it is a significant   fact  that   of  late  year's, both in   Britain and in Canada,  it has'been' the Liberal leaders and the  Liberal party  who have said ������by their  actions  that they could not trust the  people.     Laurier  for instance would  rrot allow the people of Canada to give  him any  advice on   matters so important   us  the   building   of   the Grand  Trunk  Pacific, the choice of a constitution  for   the  provinces  of   Alberta  and    Saskatchewan;    the   important  matter* of our relations to  the empire  irr   maintenance  of  the  navy, or  the  complete overturn of our fiscal system  by the attempt to force through reciprocity without submitting it   to the  people; arrd in  Britain Ave  witnessed  the tyrannical usurpation of power by  Asquith who refused Balfour's proposition for a   referendum  on   the   veto  atrd  would   force   through   measures  that involved subversion of  the constitution in   reference to the House of  Lords.  In the recent election some Liberal  speakers and writers claimed that the  election was a referendum on reciprocity, but it was no such thing, for the  life of an administration was involved  in the result. Doubtless they are  wishing now that it had been what  they  pretended  it was  equivalent to,  A NEEDLESS APOLOGY  ...; We cannot agree with the sentiments of our- Princeton contemporary  in its article on the result of the .election, and Aye, think than when its  editor calmly and honsstly reviews  the situation he will see that many of  the .'.���������.statements' ..made in the article  were not justified by'the facts, and  neither was there any duty resting  upon him, either from courtesy or any  other motive, to take upon himself to  apologise on behalf of Canada to the  United States for a "rebuff" or. "an  affront" put upon them.  The statements to which we would  take exception maybe tabulated as  follows:  1 That the. electors had been'���������frightened into a stampede for high protection."    -  2 That'��������� "retaliatory tanft"war will  begin as soon as Mr.. Borden revives  the old duties prior to 1896."  3 That "Mr. Borden and the Conservative party are under -promise to  contribute say at least twenty-live  millions of dollars towards the construction of dreadnoughts for England's navy.  4 That there is anything whatever  in the situation to sirggest "militarism  arrd the probable re-occupation of Can-  resources?

Wright claims for him.  To fully, answer this question as we  would like to. and as we could and as  \ve feel we should, would require more  space than we can spare, and we must  forbear at this time but may do so at  some future time.  to Wealth  is.'found by form nig habits of economy.

G That '-Sir Wilfrid Laurier will  measure irp to the highest statesman  in this or any other country."  Our answers to these misstatements  are:  1 Defeat of reciprocity simply  meant leaving Canada's tariff as it is  ���������an average of 35 percent, against  the U.S. average of 75per Cent, against  rrs. There may be slight increases on  sorrre lines if Canadian interests need  such and decreases in other litres, but  no probable disturbing of the general  average which was 35 per cent before  1896 and is 35 per cent after 1896.  2 Our answer to the first also answers the second.  3 Mr. Borden is not under any such  promise. Neither is he likely to commit Canada to anything in the way of  a naval policy until he gives the people  an opportunity to say what they want.  In that respect he will differ from the  high statesman Laurier who-scorned  the idea of asking the people's advice  and forced a nondescript naval policy  on the country that was a disgrace to  both hinr and the country. But you  may depend on it, the course Borden  with the people's consent will pursue in  the matter of a naval programme will  be worthy of Canada's position as an  integral portion of the empire and  will be business like.  4   Needs no answer.  o Why this undertone of Anglo-  phobism, and why this belittlement of  the vast majority of the free and independent electors of Canada, both  Conservative and Liberal? Wouldn't  it be better for our cotem. to ask the  United States to take 40 per cent, off  that 75 per cent, tariff wall of theirs  and thus restore the tariff equilibrum  which is to all intents and purposes  equivalent to free trade, than to go  apologizing to the United States for  Canada's action in protecting her own  T-TIS ..HON.OU.lt the Lieutenant-Governor in  ���������*��������� Council lias been pleased to appoint tire  Honourable Albert Edward MePlirllrps, K.

A man named Parks who was  brought to the Hedley hospital a  couple of weeks ago suffering from an  injury received while working at Coal-  mont is in a very serious condition.  The injury received has arrested the  circulatory piocess and an inordinate  swelling of the entire body has resulted. The end of last week he became  delirious and as the nurses were unable to manage him other quarters  had to be. found and the end is expected daily. Later���������Ho died on Tuesday morning. :  A team belonging to Carle, the fruit  'man. made a very leisurely sort of  runaway on Saturday evening. If  other runaway hoK-es would exercise  the same horse sense urrd reason out  tlie folly of running up a bill of break  ages tlrnt would be better'expended in  buying oats, how much better: oil* they  would fare.       ,  , "M.'K. Rodgers returned" to Seattle  on Friday, taking witlr hinr his wife  and family who spent tire .summer in  Hedloy and by Mrs. Jones of Seattle  who was visiting with them. On this  trip, as usual, Mr. Rodgers took sorrre  some hard .-tramps through the hills  and showed that he is still able t6  rank with the most skookum of the  prospectors in getting over the country  Readers will note that the hour- of  evening service has changed from the  summer schedule of S. p. rn. to the  fall and winter hour-of 7.30. The confusion seems to have originated by a  premature announcement a month  ago without consultation as to former-  practice in vogue. The first of October and the first of April have been  the dates for making the . change in  each case, these dates occurring about  ten days after the spring and - fall  equinoxes.       (  It was a pleasant surprise on Tuesday to quite a few citizens when Mr.  T. C. Gorrie, of California, arrived unexpectedly in Hedley. This is Mr.  Gome's first visit to Hedley since the  memorable summer, of 1909 when he  had charge of operations in the exhaustive examination which resulted  in the purchase of the Nickel Plate by  the present owners., , Mr. Gorrie is an  old mining operator whose business it  is to not be fooled . underground, and  no matter whether previous reports  had been good or ill he takes things  as he finds their in that examination important assistance was lent  him by Mr. Jones who was then mine  superintendent and it was a special  pleasure to Mr. Jones to go , through  th'i mine with'him again at this lapse  of time and show him the result of development in the interval. Mr. Gorrie will remain for a few days, and as  he only saw the Similameen in spring  and summer before he will now be  able to see it in autumnal dress.  Mr. Charles Carrrsell is winding' up  the season with some examinations in  the Lillooet district. His summary  report of geological researches made  by him in the sumrm-r of 1911 will be  looked for with special interest'and is  expected to make particularly interesting, reading as the special connuis-  sioris given him '.for the season were of  more than usual interest. These comprised further" investigation of the  new diamond' field of Olivine mountain; the examination of Steamboat.!  which pro veil of the 'postmortem "order  arrd some field work at other points on  the Skagit.  A. moving picture show on Thursday last gave the best exhibition in  that line that, has yet appeared irr  Hedley. The intention was to give it  only the one night, but as there was a  fair turnout on the first night and  numerous requests to repeat, it was  given again the second night! The  concern belongs to the Okanagarr-  Kootenay circuit and the intention is  to make fortnightly  visits to Hedley '  whine tlie electric power enables them i  to put on the pictures in good shape.  The pictures were very good: the com-1  edy was  lii/ht and wholesome   and ir- !  resistibly funny  without a suggestion  of indelicacy, while tlie lion scene and  those depicting the scienie beauties of  waterfalls in Austria were most enjoyable  even if the latter should be very  much  of a  case of "carrying, coal  to  Newcastle" in, displaying itin British  Columbia.

It is inevitable that the value of these lots will Greatly Increase.  Here are some of the reasons.  East Princeton is surrounded by huge deposits of coal,  cement, copper, gold, and other important minerals.  The British Columbia Portland Cement Co. is erecting  a half a million dollar plant which will employ between 300  and 400 men.  The United Empire Co. is shipping a lignite coal of the  best quality and is developing immense copper deposits, requiring large reduction works and several hundred employees.  t  The Princeton Coal and Land Co. is increasing its daily  shipments to 300 tons of coal, providing employment to  about .150 men. Other coal companies are spending over  '$2,000,000 in development, and will erive work to at least  .1000 men.  For transportation, East Princeton will have, in the near  future, the Great Northern and the Kettle Valley lines, both  of which, will pass through the townsite.  East Princeton is beautifully situated on the Similkameen river, with an abundance of water power available. The  new city has every factor for growth into a big industrial  centre.    It presents a rare opportunity for investment.  Get Full Particulars immediately  D. G. McCurdy,  R. E. Ward,  Princeton, B. C.  Pacific Blk., Vancouver, B.

The train was badly delayed Friday  ' on account of breaking the air pump  between here and Bradshaws but with  the help of a little hay wire completed  the rest of the journey in safety.  G. D. Turner, of Turner <fc Williamson. Coalmont, was in town Thursday atrd Friday; he reports great doings in the real estateline, having sold  150 lots out of -150, fifty of which they  sold last week.  It is with great regret that avo learn  of the death of 3Irs. Coleman on Saturday morning. Tlie deceased lady  passed away midnight Friday. We  assure the bereaved husband and family of our heartfelt sympathy in their  sad loss.  On 'Wednesday night the Juvenile  Bostonians gave one of their interesting and enjoyable plays. They certainly exhibited a fine display inthe  miisical'and comical line. Everybody  had a. good laugh for" they can go  sorrre for a bunch of youngsters.  On Monday evening hearing that  Leonard and his bride had got back to  town a procession was formed and  gallantly led by some of the popular  ladies of Keremeos made a bee line for  the house and presented the astonished couple with many useful gifts.  The Rev. A. H. Cameron went to  Fair-view last week to perforin a, marriage ceremony. These are quite frequent in this district This time the  bridegroom Avas Mr., William Richter and the bride Miss Dalrymple. We  wish tliein success.  The K. K.

The. opening meeting Avill be. a  social to which they give all a hearty  invitation. Come and have a.good  time.  Mrs. Daly and family got back into  town in time, to take in the Juvenile  Bostonians. They report having had  a fine time rrp the Ashnola and with  the exception.of a couple.of days the  Aveather avus fine. Although deer AArere  not plentiful they gave one a nasty  shock so he vamoosed for the tall timbers.  The Rev. Williamson, the secretary  of the. International Sunday School  who was expected in Keremeos Sunday last but did not arrive evidently  thought he had better feed up a little  before such an undertaking as we find  firrd his name mentioned in the Province as being present at the men's  Rally Banquet in Vancouver; we hope  rrow after this sumptuous repast he  will be in good shape when he comes  to visit us.  Leonard Grey, the genial driver of  the, Wei by stage somehow or other  got off the road but guess it Avas all  right anyway for finding himself in  Fairview he offered himself as a candidate, for 31iss Ripley affections being  duly accepted he struck aut for Penticton Avhere the marriage ceremony  Avas duly performed. Good boy Leonard we all join in wishing you and  yours in your wise step for future  happiness.  With our friend Rob, yours truly  took a nanitch to take in the situation  in the loAver valley. We found eyeiy-  thing O. K. especially in the line of  fruit which Ave nobly annexed. Leaving our roll and tomato can on the  track Ave struck for 3Ir. Manerys  where they made us welcome, so we  put in the night and most of Sunday  and you bet Ave had a good time. Sunday afternoon the Rev. 3Ir.
