The appended picture of elestitution  taken from the Orovjlle Gazette will,  we are sure, prove interesting to those  in this elistrict who were dull enough  not to have noticed any trace of the  woes of .which the, Professor unburdened himself. In Heelley at all events  we appear to have been particularly  dense, for while there has never been  any very noticeable scarcity of money,  anel all who were at all anxious to pay  their debts have -generally had the  wherewithal to do it, we were foolish  enough to imagine that in the period  of which the Professor complains,  times appeared to us to be better. But  here is what he says:  "Prof.  T. H.  Granville returned to  Oroville Tuesday.     The show   goirrg  public  will remember the   professor,  for he  had charge of the musical enel  of the Lyric theatre for months,  anel  supplied  excellent music in that position.    Prof. Granville hael sin idea that  there  was a  better show  across the  line,  and last  winter accepted a position  irr a moving picture  theatre at  Penticttm.    Pie has lived more recently at Vancouver.    No man  was ever  happier at getting   back   to   his olel  home than  the professor.     He is simply overjoyed at being back  in Oroville.     He paints a harrowing word  picture  of conditions over the border.  All  who can do so are getting out of  the country, and rill who cannot, want  to, according to his report,    The boom  was   overdone  in Canada,   anel   now  money is a stranger to most pockets.  Improvements are suspended,  houses  are  vacant,   prices of real estate, so  long fictitious have slumped, anel the  bottom has fallen orrt of the erstwhile  good times.     He says the only people  working  in  Arancorrver arc Hindoos,  Chinamen , and   Japanese'.      He   says  that several hundred   people want to  come  to  Washington,   irrrd   many of  them have their eyes on Oroville."  Wo don't profess to know anything  about the Professor's musical attainments but if his corrception of musical  notes is no better than his ability to  size rrp a financial or industrial situation, th^rc will be some wierd caterwauling from the orchestra in Oro-  ville's Orpheum this winter.  The last of the Inter nitionnl Geological Congress excursions returned  from the noi thern part of the province  last week.  The Annual meeting of the Kettle  River and South Okanagan Pioneer  Society took place last Thursday  evening at Larson's Hall, Riverside.  The gathering of Pioneers from all  parts of the Boundary was eloquent  to the fact that tha Society is a real  live institution, many of the old timers  travelling long distances to have the  pleasure of enjoying a few hours with  the friends of earlier days. It was a  real pleasure to witness, and still more  to participate in the hearty greeting  of old friends not seen for years-  time had dealt kindly with these  veterans, the passing years had whitened the heads of ninny but the old  time vim was still there, either a  tribute to good constitutions or to the  ozone of B. C. Numerous autos had  brought the guests from more distant  points in a few hours, a passing  tribute to the changed conditions of  travel, from the time when it would  have taken a day's bar el ride on the  hurricane cleck' of a 'cayuse to accomplish the same distance.  A meeting for routine work arrd the  election    of officers   for the   ensuing  year was called  to  order by the retiring President, Mr. John McLaren���������  Mr. Arthur   Roberts,    Secy,    having  reael the    minutes   of    the    previous  mneting, the member for Greenwood,  Mr. J. R. Jackson, in a few well chosen  words, referred to  the passing .-away  of one of our members. A small grant  was voted for the benefit of an old  timer anel the meeting was brought to  a close by an election  of officers,  Mr.  Ernest Spraggett being electeil  President arrd Mr. Arthur Roberts re-elected Secretary,   while  the final  act of  collecting due's  was    followed    by   a  move to the  elinner table,   where  the  Pioneers gave evielence that they still  possesseel good appetites.  After the good  things provideel by  the host. Mr*.   Sam Larson,  had  been  thoroughly     enjoyed,     conversation  flowed more freely and  the  e voir ing  proved far too short for many of the  old  timers, who accustomed to the all  night sessions  of earlier celebrations,  failed  to  appreciate   the  tinre   regulation imposed by the new Liquor Act.  A proposition was made to collect and  embody in a sketch the events of the  fifty  years from  who    had    actually  taken a part anel the  writer will  be  very pleaseel  to receive reminiscences  from his pioneer friends and endeavour  to arrange them in  chronologic order1,  for the benefit of the members of a  society, hound together by gootl fellowship anel ever ready  to assist in the  good cause of charity.  "    '���������'���������      H. N.  * Ottawa, Sept. 27.���������That the splendid  crop in the Prairie Provinces will have  a more favorable effect on the British  Columbia business and trade correli-  tiorrs is the opinion of Hon. Martin  Burrell, Minister of Agriculture.  "In every Canadian heart," said Mr.  Burrell to a press correspondent today, "there is deep thankfulness that  the safety of the magnificent crop of  our three Prairie Provinces is now ns-  sirrcel.  '���������Greater irr quantity, better in quality than ever before, the great tide of  wheat is flowing from the far distant  farms to the railways, to the elevators,  to the shops, bringing a well earned  reward to the man who is doing the  foundational work of our country in  the far off fields.  UEKE1VAL OK L'ONFIUISNCIJ  "Bringing relief to those concerned  with the financial affairs of Canada  and bringing also a renewal of confidence in the stability anel va.*-������ resources of our common country. In Great  Britain deep satisfaction will he felt in  the industrial life of Canada, itself.  East and West, and the relief the  stimulus will give will be equally great.  "To those en0 us who have spent  years in British Columbia watching its  amazing development, faith irr its future is nnshakeable, the lrragnitncle  anel variety of its resources enabling  such a province to withstand hard  times better than those countries  where prosperity depends so largely  on one oi two staple industries.  .   HOUND  TO FEEL  PINCH  "But in a widespread time of financial tightness*, the pinch was bound to  come to a country where the phenomenal expansion, though 'based  soundly, necessitates large expenditures and large borrowings. Inter-  provincial 'trade always tremendously  important, is yearly becoming more  so, and the favorable effect on British  Columbia of the splendid crop of the  prairies can hardly be overestimated.  "It means ability to purchase a vastly increased quantity of British Columbia products. It means an influx  of'investors and a swelling of investments."  Sensational  Work  Done at  the Nelson  Fair by Contesting Teams  ' The big prize hung out for the rock  drilling contest at the Nelson Fair produced a high class of drilling and all  the teams entering hael some claims to  class. The rock there is .somewhat  softer tiian that useel in Hedley which  acounts to some extent for the greater  elcpth drilled, but nevertheless the big  factor in the greater depth must have  been the calibre of the men who made  it. Anderson and Sebla of Rosslnnd  who won first money irr Heelley on  Labor Day with some 33 odd inches  bettered this irr the Nelson rock by  something over- 3(5 inches. The winners at Nelson were two Silver-ton  tearrrs. The one taking first-prize was  Ericksorr and Johnson who irrade a  rrew record in that class, of rock hy  drilling 4-1 inches 'irr the 15 minutes,  while the other Silverton tearrr, Car-  micheal & Tinney drilled 42.i.  RARE SUNSET EFFECT  BRIDGE-BUILDING PROGRAMME  The Phoenix.Pioneer says that Hidden Creek is ��������� expecteel to produce 40  lbs of copper to the ton which on a 17c  basis price would, yield $.8.00 per; ton  in copper in. addition to the golel contents of-the ore.- -Granby -shares are  expected to go to .$100 per share' irr  consequence. -.'....  Mr. Gird wood has given a statement  with regard to the; bridges that are expected to be completed this fall. The  department is taking advantage of the  low water and the good -weather that  prevails during the autumn.  "The Eagle River bridges will be  built at once," says Mr. Girelwood.  "The bridge over the North Fork of  the Eagle River one mile west of Taft  will be a Howe truss span 110ft. long.  "The bridge over Eagle River at  Malakwa will be 140ft. Howe truss  span.  "The brielge at Sicanious over the  Eagle River will be 140.ft. Howe truss  sparr.  "All of the above are on the proposed  Revelstoke-Okanagan Road.  "The swing bridge at Mara is being  rushed to completion arrd will be completed this month.  "Timber has heen shipped for the  bridge over the North Thompson River  one mile north of the Barrier River  and construction will be rushed to  completion.  "The bridge at Princeton over the  Tulameen River will be 160 ft. Howe  truss with concrete abutments, arrd  will take the place of olel structure.  Work has commenced on this  brielge, arrel will be rushed to completion.  "The bridges at Penticton on Front  Stieet, a piled structure, will be rush-  eel to completion.  "Construction will commence on  130 ft. swing bridge over the Okanagan  River.and will be completed as soon as  possible."  ��������� Mr. Girdwooel says that the proposed  bridge at Sorento, near the English  Chinch, will probably be built next  spring.  September of 1913 shoulel go down in  the records as one of the finest that  has been experienced irr this portion  of the province. There has just been  frost enough to give the requisite fancy  coloring to vegetation and rrrost of the  sunsets have been fine. That on Friday evening last was unique. Itseenr-  eel to have been proelue.ed by some  peculiar coloring matter irr or arrangement of the clouels in the western sky  which threw a soft yet-wierd radiance  around the mountain tops to the east.  Climax blulf was bathed in a light  that "would have defied the brush of  the most noted painter to have reproduced; for after all, mere paint is  weak when employed to show some of  Nature's best color effects. The peculiar feature on this occasion was that-'  it was most striking (|iiite late on in  the evening after it was quite elusk  down in the valley and the lights were  all burning in Hedley. -The prevailing  shade, was that which one sees when  awakened in the riiglit'and the light  from a burning building is reflected  on surrounding objects. Climax bluff  anel the jutting rugged rocky ribs or  mountain promontories around Camp' ;  Clifton-we're all envelopeel in this soft  uncanny hue, while the line between  this arrd the sourbr-e mountain siele of  the canyon berreath was "quite sharply  drawn. Altogether it was an effect  which one might live for decades in  the valley anel not see again.  NEGLECTING THEIR  OPPORTUNITIES  British Manufacturers Slow to Take Advantage of What Canada Offers  There has been a flurry in Consolidated mining shares irr the east anel  the stock has been changing hands  recently at 83 ex-dividenel.  London, Sept.25.���������Leo Scheff, who  has just corrrpleteel a three months'  tour from coast to coast in Camilla  give's some remarkable facts as to the  amazingly rapid expansion and commercial growth of Canada eluring the  last twelve months. This was Mr.  SchefFs fourth visit to Canada and as  he useel'a motor he was able to go  right fnto the heart of the country.  At the outset of the interveiw he  referreel to the development of innumerable small towns and villages,  among which he instances Medicine  Hat. Since his visit last year the  town boasts of having built one e>f the  largest flour mills in Canada, from  which it supplies enormous quantities  of flour to China arrel Japan, the sacks  being marked.in Chinese arrel Japanese characters. Medicine Hat, he  says is but typical of the city that  makes itself by enterprising local govern merit.  He regretted to notice that a majority of rrew factories were of American origin and thought it high time  that British manufacturers should  seize the great opportunities that Canada has to offer English manufacturers in Medicine Hat, Moose Jaw, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Lethbridge, and  other cities in Manitoba. Alberta, arrel  Saskatchewan.  Mr. Sclieff is enthusiastic about the  good work being carried on by home  reunion associations, which have dealt  out loans with liberality and have not  lost a single penny.

HOME RULE AND PAUPERS  IN AID OF CIVIL POWER  It may   be   the   fashion   in  certain  quarters  at the present to blackguard  the militia anel to inveigh against employment of thenr   in aid   of the  civil  power  to  quell -disturbances   of   any  kind that ate shown   to be. beyonel the  ability  of I ho  officers of the  civil law  to cope;   with;   but if ever  the wisdom  of maintaining.'an armed force and of  making provision for using thenr in aid  of.the civil power, was plainly eleinon-  strateel,   it was in the case of  the recent riots in Nanaimo.    This duty laid  upon   the  militia   by the   laws  of the  land,   is one  of the   most,  trying that  they  can be  ca.lleel   upon to'perform;  and if over it was  skillfully, tactfully  and humanely elone it was by the Victoria   anel    Vancouver    troops   who  brought order out of chaos in Nanaimo.    Blood   hael been   spilled by  lawless ruffians,   and women anel children'  driven   from   their   homes   to  die   of  starvation or exposure.    Bub after the  troops arriveel on the scene not another life was sacrificed; airel if there, were  any who  hael reason   to   bless  those  level-headed commanding officers  anel  the men under thenr, it was the rioters  themselves,   many  of whom,   there is  the best of  reason   to  believe,   were  saved from themselves  anel are to-day  free from the crime of iiiureler,   which  they wotrlel not have been  if they had  been   left   to   themselves  for a  single;  day or  even   part   of a day   longer.  Attorney ��������� general   Bowser     may   at  times  exhibit  wrong-heaeledness   arrel  make  Iris  mistakes,   but  he  made no  mistake   that   time.     Apart from the  higher principle   involved anel looking  at the  question   only from   the  lower-  plane  of   mere  expediency,   it   woulel  have   been  a calamity  to the  mining  inelustry  irr   this province  to  let  the  impression go abroad that the Dominion or any province in it was too weak  to maintain older and protect life and  property  within its  bounds.    In Heel-  would   wo  have  hael   outside   capital  coirre anel  invest  three  quarters of a.  million   before they   took out a. dollar  if  the  investor hael   not been   given  reason to believe  that property rights  and  human life were safe from mob  violence ?    It is hoped that  the occasion may   bo far distant when  it may  again be necessary to call on the arm-  eel  forces of  the country  to maintain  order arrel enforce the civil law,   but if  the occasion should recur, let us hope  that as level-headed commanding officers and as thorough soldiers  will be  A strong   argument  is   put   up by  the men of Ulster to show   that  the  present status ofTrelnnel in the United  Kingdom of Great Britain arrel Ireland  has nothing  whatever to do with an.y  lack, or- fancii el luck,   of prosperity in  the green   isle,   brrt quite  the reverse;  and   if the  south of   Ireland  does, not  make the  satisfactory showing which  it might,   other  causes   than   her present status  under the  British government must be sought.    The feature; to  which they draw attention irr order to  illustrate this point is the. pauper- rate.  Belfast is  prosperous arrel she enjoys  no advantage over the rest of Irelanel,  England,   Scotland  or Wales and yet  her  pauper  rale  is the  lowest of all.  Taking all  other-citie-s,   towns and industrial   districts  in   the   three  kingdoms anel comparing   the pauper rate'  with  that of  Belfast it is  seen   that  while Belfast has 92 paupers for every  10,000 population,   Dublin,   the centre  of agitation for  Home  Rule,   has 273  for  every  10,000 of  population,  or in  round  numbers about three to one of  Belfast's   showing.     Only   one   other  cily  iir   the Uniteel   Kindonr   has less  than  100  paupers  in   every  10,000  of  population   and   that   is  Bradford   in  England   with a  pauper rate of 90 in  10,000.    One other comparison may be  irrade and   that is to  compare  Belfast  with the average of all the rest of Ire-  last outside of Belfast, and when this  is done it is seen that Belfast's rate is  just exactly half that average, for she  has  a rate  of 92  in 19,000 against  an  average  of 1S-I-  for all   the rest of Irelanel outside the Belfast district. When  Belfast can make a showing  like this  under Ireland's present  status  irr  the  Unrteel Kingdom, why place her under  the domination of the pauper breed-,  ing    methods   which   have   produced  such a  class of   rrre-nelrcants as is to be  founel in Dublin-?

Maurice Duly of Keremeos was in  ��������� town on Monday.  The  hour for   church   service   will  ��������� change   to 7:30   orr   Sunday   evening  next.  Mrs. F. H. Parsons, of Princeton,  spent the week end with Dr. unci Mrs.  McEweu.  Tlie licence fee for moving picture  shows irr Greenwood has heen in-  crerrseel from $50 to $100.  ,.A. McGibbon was laid up with a sore  foot this week. Erysipelas from a  wound in the shirr is the cause of the  trouble.  W. Synions got a  fine eight point  buck on  Sunday beyond  the Nicked  Plate  which  was  claimed    to   weigh  -about 250 lbs.  Constable Sproule  went to  Prince-  tori on Monday arrd it being Coalniont  -clay.managed  to get  back by  the  return train the sairre afternoon.  Dont forget that the Gazette has  the last word in Christmas greeting  cards.    Call and see  the designs, anel  ���������dont delay too  long in placing your  ���������oicler.  The Ladies' Auxiliary of the Anglican Church p/i'rpose holding- sewing  meetings on Wednesday afternoons to  which all the ladies of tho town are  invited.  Mr. Camsell after a busy week in  ���������Camp Hedley left on Monday for  PrinceLon arrd Tulameen anel might  possibly go to Summit camp before  going east again to Ottawa.  ��������� Miss McDonald from Bossland came  over here last week to see her brother  Jack McDonald of the diarrrond drill  crew. She is the guest of Mrs. Mc-  Kinnorr on Kingston avenue.  Frank Bailey was iir town last week  with a'supply of his pamphlet "The  Valley of Sunshine" and disposed of a  number of copies besides leaving a  supply in the stores on sale at 35c per  copy.    .  There were no Vancouver papers on  Saturday which indicated that something had gone wrong with the mails  between Jiere anil the coast. These  little lapses disjointing the service  occur quite frequently       .  We notice by the Princeton .Star,  that Robt. Stevenson got a nasty fall  off the side-walk, in Prielceton on a  dark Sun'driy night whileTon his way  to church service. Poorly lit streets  ���������are -a dangerous thing for everobody  and particularly for aged people.  H. C. N. Etches of Keremeos spent  the week end in Hedley and tried his  hand at golf on the Hedley links.  Seeing a fine field before him from the  tee on Primrose Way he took a'S wipe  at the ball which forthwith vanished  from human sight-and has never been  seen on earth since.  Paddy Murray rs taking a two  weeks'lay-off from his job on the battery floor which he has been holding  clown steadily for "a. long tirrre. He  left the beginning of the week for Nelson aird Spokane, brrt before going he  prrt in some stiff work with the pick  and shovel helping to get the rink  in shape.  Messrs. T. Walter Beam and G. P.  Jones went out on Sunday in the  company's car, the former going to  Vernon and the latter to Summerland.  Mr*. Beam expected to meet Mr. C. A.  Corigelon of Dtilttth who is one of the  Directors of the Hedley Gold Mining  Company arrel is coming in to see the  Nickel Plate.  Mr. and Mrs. L. K. Parr entertained  the members of the choir on Tuesday  evening when about twenty were  present for the whole everrirrg and a  jolly tiure was sperrt. They expect to  leave Hedley irr about another month  and will be very much missed both  for the service they have rendered in  church work and for their own social  worth.  The Greenwood Fair management  wrote over to ascertain the probability  of a Heelley team going over for the  drilling competition to be held there.  The chance for complying with the  reeprcst was not particularly bright,  as ambition in that line has not been  soaring of late and the departure of J.  Beam deprived the camp of its principal aspirant for professionalism.  About thirty went up to the mine  on Friday night from Heelley to attend the. dance which was held in the  new store and warehouse building recently completed near the mouth of  No. 4 tunnel. The floor looked too  tempting to allow the space to be  taken up with counters, shelves, goods  etc. until it had been duly dedicated  by means of a social hop. All the  ladies at the mine were present with a  fair representation of the fair sex from  Hedley and "jolly time resulted.  L. W. Shatford M. P. P. was in  Amsterdam on September 14 th and was  leaving that night for Berlin. A picture postcarel showing the quaint  dress and wooden shoes of the Hollanders is interesting irr the extreme, and  gives some idea af the variety in  dress and customs he will rrreet with  in his travels.  The executive committee, of the  Golf Club met on Thursday evening  last rind arranged for fixing up the  greens a bit. Other attractions during  the summer season and uncertainty  in reference to the club 'ground interfered with the season's play and prevented .a, sufficiently accurate revision of the handicaps to permit of  playing oil' this year for the cup donated by the Honorary President Mr.  I. L. Merrill. The fall is always a  favorite season for- golf and a little  fixing up of the greens will be necessary for satisfactory play.  It is comforting to know tliat Mr.  .1. 11. Kennedy is hopeful of the possibility of making the through trip by  rail over the V. V. &. E. from Hedley  to Vancouver for Christmas 1914.  When Mr. Kennedy has reason to  doubt a thing he is generally non-committal and he has a faculty of steering  clear of elates. Mr. Kennedy can build  roads as fast as anybody else when he  has a free hand, and this was shown  irr the short tirrre it took hinr to complete   the. road from Grand Forks   to  ���������^rW^f^^  Phoenix. Unfortunately Wall Street  arrd St. Paul conspired to prevent him  from making any more records so far  as the road to the coast is concerned.  The past week has seen work well  advarrceel on the rink. The ditch lias  been dug to accommodate the water  pipe and most of the levelling has beerr  done. It has all been accomplished by  volunteer labor on the part of members of the Hockey and Skating Club  who have pirt irr spare hours, and on  Suntlay they were out in force, for a  regular bee. Post holes have yet to be  dug for the fence arrel the balance of  the levelling dorre. This will be small  in comparison with what has already  bean doire. The mistakes of last year  will be guarded against as much as  possible and if November and December are. favorble for the making of  ice, the winter game will be in full  swing a month or two earlier than  last winter.  The old Hsdley. Meat Market facing  north on Webster St. has been given  a half turn to -face westward on Scott  'Avenue, and an addition of 30 feet  square is being built to the rear to  make it suitable for a'moving picture  theater which will be used by the purchaser, J. K. Fraser, for that purpose.  This will give him a building 64 feet  long and 30 feet wide in the rear part  with jr, width of 25 feet in the rest of  the hall. Boeing <fc Brass have the  contract and expect to have it ready  for occupation in about three weeks or  less. In all probability it will serve  for other shows as well as the moving  pictures, for a stage and dressing  rooms are being provided for in the  new addition. In all probability it  may also be given a slopirrg fioor.  Mr. T. Walter Beam has piloted a  good niany down the canyon from  Camp Clifton, and a sort of meditative  subdued expression has been evident  in the face of each. The soreness resulting from the physical exertion of  the trip was a theme that none of the  pilgrims cared to discuss. One of them  was Mr. Camsell'whom we saw next  morning alter the trip was made, ana  we all know what sort of a greyhound  Mr. Camsell is when it comes to getting over the hills. But it is only fair  to Mr. Camsell to explain that he was  breaking-in a pair of new shoes, and  that was the main ground for complaint which ho had to charge up to  the trip. When Mr. Camsell was told  that the Gazette intended making the  trip shortly with Mr. Beam he pulled  a half-amused, half-pitying grin that  was suggestively expressive. But we'll  see what we'll see.  11. A. Turner, road supervisor for  the Siirrilkanreerr district, was in town  orr   Monday   accompanied   by   E.   P.

H. Rose's road gang suspended work  on  Saturday and  began   to  bring irr  supplies arrel camp and road building  equipment to Hedley for storage until  the  work is  resumed in  the spring.  The season on   this portion  has   been  much  shorter  than irr  other parts of  the riding   owing to   several   weeks'  delay of the   local   gang  getting to  work in the spring.  Rosslarrel was visited with a severe  storm on equinox day accompanied  with lightning, thunder, rain hail anel  tor-riffle wirrd which twisted the Miner's  I Union hall out of shape, and did much  other damage.  The Triune group of mineral claims  south-west of Oroville has been bonded to Pennsylvania capitalists. The  Triune is a free gold proposition and a  few years ago produced several substantial gold bricks by rrre.-rrrs of a  small stamp mill erected on the property. The only mining doire then was  some gophering of the rich surface deposits. The death of one of the three  owners, the bankruptcy of another  and lack of cash of the third prevented further work and the inevitable  long shut down resulted. The present  bondholders irrade a careful examination and sampling before taking the  bond anel the consideration is said to  be $100,000.

On Friday Walter Frith and his son  went out orr a fishing trip. Starting  frorrV.the second railway river brielge  up tlie river they fished dowrr to Ashnola siding and brought back a very  line string of trout arrd white fish.  Some of the trout measured fourteen  inches in length.  With the swiftness of the hand that  deceives the eye ripples are being picked for the various markets orr every  lot irr the district. Of course we mean  where there are apples for there are a  few lots still on the market unimproved that will go up in price like a Kansas cyclone when the railroad hits the  coast.  On the 24th of September C. A. C.  Stewart.accompanied bv his wife anel  Miss Killick, A. C. Gahan andeG.  Mason motored over from Penticton.  The party visited the claims of W. J.  Armstrong inthe lower valley. Mr.  Armstrong, who met the party, was  in towrr the same day showing samples of ore, which, if there is a body of  the same material of the samples produced, he will soon he on the road to a  big fortune.  Benjamin R. Barlow hied himself  off to Oroville and there orr the 26th  nit he was married to Mrs. Louise  Mary Bills. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. Morton of, the  Methodist Episcopal church and Mr-,  and Mrs. Barlow have returned to  Keremeos accompanied by the bride's  daughter, Miss Kathleen Bills. Ben  is receiving the congratulations of his  friends which is joined in by the Keremeos correspondent who bestows his  blessing  and contributes an olel shoe.  A. B.  Campbell drove over to   Similkameen on the 25th accompanied  by Win. Armstrong, W. Chrisholnr of  Penticton and   W. B.  Hine of Okanagan  Falls.     Everybody seems to be  getting  the mining fever in  the Pen  ticton district, for this parly was also  taking a nanitch over Billy's claims.  From our point we wish the development of claims   inthe  district a little  more than  has been  done in  tho past  few years.     No little  excitement has  been caused irr the past by some person of repute quietly getting off at our  modest village,  and after maybe panning a little gold or staking a claim or  two, slide out as easy as they come in.  The stuff is here   but needs a little  lucre.     Money is  the root of all evil;  so root, you lobsters, root.  Hedley is doing more than talking  rink and hockey. They are more than  gritting there and working with a will  that would put a town of five times  its size to shame.. From 15 to 20  warm enthusiasts turned in with picks  and shovels and when last seen by the  writer were digging a ditch around  the school house so as to enable them  to get a better water supply than they  had last year1. If a preacher and a  printer had been there all trades and  professions would have- been represented. It certainly was line to see  the boys drilling like an experienced  gang.

May good luck follow you  in your earnestness to show others  what good a bunch of clean sports carr  do to keep the games of any town rrp  to standard. The rink when completed  will be about 08x100 feet. Now, Ker-e-  irri-os, let's get iir the game and have a  well represented- meeting to discuss  the. building of a rrew rink that will be  a credit to us. Last year a splendid  start was made and a lot of good work  done. This year with the experience  gaiired we can go ahead arrd do things.  Wo want to be able to give the Hedley boys as good a rink to play on, as  undoubtedly they will give us.  OKAXAGAX   TALLS  The house of Oscar McKinnon is  almost completed.

RICHTER ESTATE  CLOSING    OUT    SALE  *8?  ������  ������  ������  ������  While the great majority of our  fruit growers and shippers are endeavouring, usually successfully, to live  fully up to the requirements of the  Fruit Marks Act (Inspection & Sales  Act, Party), it is to be regretted that  some fruit is still being poorly packed  and improperly graded, and some  fruit packages are falsely marked.  The Dominion Fruit Inspectors in  the Province and in the. Prairies, are  successfully securing the marking of  imported fruit, as required by the new  laws passed at,the request of the B. C.  Fruit Growers' Association. There  has not been a similar readiness to observe the law on the part of our own  fruit growers, which puts the Association and fruit growers, generally, in  an unfair position. All B. C. growers-  should be willing to assist the Association in its efforts to protect the industry, by themselves meeting the  law's requirements. Their violations  are due, eloubtless, to ignorance of  what is required. We urge every  packer and shipper of fruit to procure  a copy of the act from the Chief Dominion Inspector, R. G. L. Clarke, 155  Water Street, Vancouver, and to read  and master its contents. This must  result in a better pack of fruit, better  prices and a higher reputation, which,  in turn, insures more stable markets  in future years.  Some, of oiir growers are liable to  prosecution for violation of the Act:  we hope that the number of such cases  will diminish, because the prosecution  of the individual hurts not only himself but the reputation of B. C. fruit  growers collectively.  Growers and packers should also secure copies of the circulars on 'Methods of Fruit Picking and Handling'  and 'Fruit Packing', issueel by the  Provincial Department of Agriculture,  obtainable on reepiest from the Department at Victoria or' from any Assistant Horticulturist. The Act states  the law's requirements: the circulars  outline the methods of picking, handling, grading and packing to meet the  requirements of the law and the market. .    -  There rrrust be continual progress in  the methods of preparing fruit for the  market, if our fruit' industry is to  overcome its keen corn petition and  take its place as one of the principal  industries of the Province. There  rrrust also be continued effort by all  our growers to keep our Unit pack  honest and uniformly reliable, and to  raise the standard higher each year.  The more favorable markets and prices  of the current season, tempt many to  relax their efforts, resulting in lower  grades. The bad results of this practice are liable to be severely felt next  season, when the expected bumper  crops over the Northwest States will  make tho markets much more critical  towards poor packing than   this year.
