The lodgie  room for the occasion  Avas draped in  mourning in memory of the late king,'  who had been Grand Master of the  Sovereign Grand-Lodge of Great Britain until  his accession to the throne,  when  he htid aside, the gavel for the  sceptre.

P  Transition Period in Full Swing���������lylarvellbus Progress  of Past Five Years Only a Suggestion of What  Next Five will Bring  A .-few'.-"day's ago the editor of the  Gazette paid ii visit to Keremeos to  note the prograss being made, for the  spring time is always a'very; important season with the agriculturist and  fruit-grower,, 'and to say that Ibe evidences of expansion in the fruit-growing industry to be seen 011 .-ill sides  Avas a 1 evelatiori, is putting it mildly.

Bullock-Webster  while..lii   the lo-wervalley Mr. Ricliter  also set the pace and showed the way  by. setting out  his  fine  orchard   on  what is  known  as his  lower  place in  Ricliter  Pass leading from   the Lower  Similkameen   into  tlm  Lower   Okanagan,.to hi:'shortly followed by Messrs  MeCurdy  ami   Maiiery,   who  planted  tiers and  provided  themselves   with  the nucleus of profitable orchards.  '   These   beginnings of over a score of  years ago were, however, for the most  part tentative, for in those days cattle  raising   was    the only   industry   that  could be turned to account, the lowing  herds  that hail  feet of  their  own   to  take   them to   market being the   only  A WORD FOR SIMILKAMEEN  R.

The first  is an evidence of what man can do;  the second shows what the soil can do,  and it/would appear that Avhen these  two are considered  side by  side,   the  ORCHARD AND GARDEN IN MAY  Planting raspberries, cost of growing grapes, cranberry culture, selection of nursery stock, lime-sulphur vs.  Bordeaux for spraying, co-operative  buying of supplies, spraying peaches  and controling broAvn-tail moth are  among the many topics for fruit grenv-  ers that are discussed in the May issue  of the Canadian Horticulturist, published at Peterhoro, Ontario. A A-alu-  able article is contributed also by Mr.  J. A. Roddick, Dairy and Cold Storage Commissioner, Ottawa, on "'The  Construction of Cold Storage Warehouses.' For vogetable growers there  are articles on onions, potatoes, asparagus, celery,' tomatoes peppers,  and starting seedlings. Amateur gardeners are given special attention in  articles on sweet peas, asters, dahlias,  lilacs, and so ��������� forth. Horticultural  notes from all the provinces constitute a strong feature of the issue.  The  British  Columbia contributors  are C. F. Sprott,  Burnabv  Lake; W.  J.   L.   Hamilton,   South  Salt Spring.  and ���������'Cerasus," Kelowna.    Among the  prairie  province   writers   are  F.   VV.  Hack, Norwood,   Manitoba, T.

Sample cop;-?s ,  of the Canadian U'-rti'-uitiu-st may l.o ;  had on   request to the above mer.tion- J  ed address. '  soil'rcalhr has the best best of it.  In company .with' the Gazette's representative, at Keremeos, Mr. J. A.  Brown, we had the privilege.of making the roiind of rnost of the fruit lots,  and.noting \vhiit had been done and  in doing so had to cover a sweep of  country that in .five or six years hence  AVill make Keremeos and the'Similkameen famed for the quantity and superior quality'of its fruit.  Before  entering on any detailed description of present conditions a paragraph or  two to connect  the  present  AA'ith the past may not he inopportune,  and  as   fruit-growing   is   to   be   our  theme Ave will endeavor to confine any  references to the  past to matters that  will   have   soirie   hearing   along    this  line.    The  Gazette   has before  at different times had clesciipti\-e write-ups  of   Keremeos  ami   the   lower   valley  dealing   with    the  early   history   anil  Avith   the   cattle  industry  as   well  as  Avriteups  of the older  orchards- and a  little later on, with the division of the  Coulthard  e.-tate and the  early plantings of some of  these  fruit lots,   that  may  be   said   to  form   the   advance-  guard of the new order.  The  lirst atteinps at    fruit-growing  in    the    Similkaiiieeii    were   hv    Mr.  they could realize. With Mr. Richter  it Avas not altogether tentative for he  appears to have had' a firm conviction  that it was the land industry of the  future for this valley, and he had the  courage to tackle it under varied con-:  ditions. His first planting on the  ���������Lowe ranch .was on sub-irrigated bottom la:nd; his.nextpn land somewhat  of tlie sarrie character but at a higher  altitude, and his third and final triumph was on the much despised, arid,  cactus and grease-wood covered bench  land of the Surprise place, his present  'splendid orchard and home.  The 'circumstances under which his  first trees were planted, the difficulties  which he had to overcome and the  lessons he learnt therefrom have he-  fore been told in these columns and  need not be repeated here. Each of  his three orchards taught its own  lesson in its own way, The main  point to be kept in view is that they  demonstrated the fact that all three  classes of land will grow good fruit.  Another ciretiiiistaiice which ripened the district for the changn which is  taking place, was the evidence of how  tlie land will respond to cultivation  and irrigation. That magnificent  stretch of Alfalfa which for about  twelve years delighted the eyes of all  visitors and put them in love with the  valley was Siinilkaineen's full page ad.  kept running year after year and  Continued on Supplement  "Professional boomers arid legitimate prospectors have overlooked a  good thing in the Similkameen mining  district," 'according to R. W.'Nortliey",'  Avho says the district has ample ore  aiid .conveniences to make a great  mining country. Writing froiiti Ohilla  Mr. Northey says:  "lii the daily papers I see numerous  statements 7 concerriihg the sale or  bonding of some copper properties in  the 'northwest,- more particularly in  the Portland Canal district on the  north coast of British Columbia. Here  vast sums are being paid for undeveloped mineral claims situated some-.,  where in the neighborhood of a rich  strike. All this reminds riie of the  Rossland boom of .'05, '96 and '07, and  in that boom I dare say some investors  will be lucky enough to put -theii*  money on a winner, Avhile others' will  content themselves Avith the reaping  of an abundant crop of experience.  "Here's  another instance of the old  saying    that   distant   pastures   look  greener  than the fields close at hand.  This section,   the Similkameen, might  have  had  a  boom  in  '97-'98 if it had  been accessible at that time, when the  boom   microbe   Avas   travelling   Avest-  ward from Rossland through the Boundary, but Avas diverted southward'" to"  Republic camp.    There were not even  .Avagon roads in this district then, the  trails often   being  the creek  beds at  low water, and the only entrance from  east or west  being  by  the Dewdney  trail; '"while    north  and   south   there  Avere only deer tracks leading noAvhere  in particular.  "Here steadily at work grinding  out dividends is the richest gold mine  ��������� with the busiest stamp mill in Canada.  The Nickel Plate stands first on the  list of Canada's gold mines, and there  are others just as good in the immediate vicinity, notably the Kingston. Then the gold copper propositions are many. Some of these are low  down and close to the railway; all of  them are easy of access, easy to Avork  and easy to buy or bond, while 1 have  no doubt that most of them are capable of placing their owners on easy  street if worked under proper conditions. Such conditions include the installing of machinery, Avhieh is beyond the present OAvners, who are  prospectors and poor men.  "Last Aveek I saAv an assay certificate of a sample of ore from a claim  situated four- miles north of Keremeos  on the Great Northern railway, ft  Avent 17.2 per cent, copper. About  $8000 Avorth of work has been done on  this claim by the owner, avIio has held  onto it for 10 years but is asking quite,  a moderate price for it. The ledge is  Avell established and disclosed in three-  or four places for about 2000 feet Avith  an average Avidth of from 8 to 10 feet.  On another claim, close by, the copper  contents Avent $76.50  "Here, then is a mining district that  has neA*er. had a boom, it has been  OA'er-looked by the professional hoom-  sters. Yet Ave have every facility and  every feature necessary to the making  of a rich mining country, -high-grade  ore bodies of fair size, 00 per cent, of  the ores self-fluxing, casv of access,  timber and water on the spot, coal  close- at hand, easy terms of purchase,  and situated on the main line of tin-  Great Northern railway from Spokane  to Vancouver Avhen the Hope Mountain section is completed.  GOLFERS ATTENTION  Both in the ladder competition and  in the foursome matches it is most desirable that all the' score cards be  handed in to the secretary in order-  that a, proper handic-apstanding be obtained, as the present handicaps are  merely tentative and cannot be considered to give anything like the degree of accuracy that might be obtained by extending it over series of  two or three dozen rounds of the links  ;it various intervals.

It is essential to the success of the industry that  there should in: a common   ground on  which  fi nit' growers,  can   meet  each  other and   Avork  out   the great problems involved, in..producing a uniformly high grade of fruit, properly packed  and distributed by efficient transportation." facilities. ..to..- the   best   market'  This Association is   intended to   bring  fruitgrowers together'un such a  coin-  111011 basis, for mutual aid  aud assistance along tho lines involved in better-  marketing   of   our   fruit.    It  is  thus  re.iiiy an educational   force,   hut  it  is  to be valuable also in,securing supplies  at lowest prices (send for price  list  to  fiie  seeret.aiy)   and   in   bringing    the  gr'-.-:l'-st force  to   bear  in   transportation  problems.  Tiie. work of the Association for the  present season will be along the following lines :-  1. ' A price list of supplies will be  sent, to members. This can be used to  ���������secure, good .supplies at the lowest  prices.  2. A list of wholesale and retail  distributors of our fruit is being prepared for distribution in the next few  weeks.  o Crop reports of the province and  of our competitors,- especially Oregon  Washington and Ontario, avi'II be distributed monthly, or oftener if deemed  advisable, The Association is issuing  a. list of shippers and shipping associations of the province for distribution  among the wholesalers. If you are  not included kindly Avrite, stating  amount of fruit available.  4. The. board of Horticulture has  kindly consented to give the Association the use of the Aveekly reports of  Market Commissioner, J. C. Metcalfe,  and these will be sent by wire or letter-  to affiliated associations and individual members.  5 A monthly crop and market report of the Avorld's fruit Avill be published.  (J ' Any Fruit Growers' Associations  in the province, may affiliate on payment of a small fee, and thus secure  the benefits mentioned above. If  your district has no local association  and needs one, the officer of the association will be glad to help you start  one on the best basis for success.  7 An annual conference will beheld next year at Victoria, to which  all members are Avelcoine.

Clarke, of Green Mountain Avas in toAvn last Aveek for a  couple of days visiting her daughter,  Mrs. W. J. Forbes, and returned horne  on Saturday.  The flags Avhieh have been flying at  half mast since news of King Edward's  death was received, Avill be lowered  to-morroAv (20th) when the remains of  the late King Avill be laid at rest.  There have also been half a dozen  other more or less pretentious houses  that have gone up dm ing the past  tAvo yeaisthat help to give a good impression by the air of comfort they  impart.  A. Creelman and Avife arrived from  Ncjav Yor.k on Monday accompanied  by Geo. F. Milliken, mining engineer  who will make an examination of the  Golden Zone upon Avhichthey hold an  option. The work of umvatering the  mine is now in progress.  Mrs. R. S.

Miss Bond, matron of the Hediey  hospital, is at present suffering from  a case of blood poisoning in one of her  hands, Avhieh she had. evidently contracted in dressing the Avound of a  patient containing, septic, poisoning.!  The hand required severe surgical  treatment but is now' getting all right  again. ���������  Saturday was the first mail to reach  Hediey after the injury to the raihvay  bridges Which took place on Tuesday  night. This is altogether too long to  be without .mail and it shoAvs a woeful  lack of elasticity in the post office de:  partment Avhieh seems unable to  grapple Ayith a little disarrangement  in the mail; routes Avithout putting the  public to' so much inconA-enience and  loss.  The ladies' Auxiliary to the Hediey  Hospital are holding aDonation Party  in Union. Hall, Friday next, at 8 p. in.  for the purpose of supplying the kitchen with some necessary articles.  The public are cordially invited to attend, the price of admission being  "something- for the kitchen." Tea  and coffee Avill be served, but the ladies  arc asked to bring lunch, cups, saucers  and spoons for tAvo, or more.  The Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary held  their business meeting on Friday last  and decided to hold a donation party,  next month in lieu of the regular-  monthly teas. A list of articles Avhieh  the hospital is in need of will be posted  up and intending contributors will select one or more of these to make up  the amount of their contribution, purchase same and take to the place  where the party will be held.  G. P. Jones holds the record for No  4 hole on the Hediey Golf links, otherwise known as "Pons Asinorum", getting it in tAvo strokes. Some one will  have to do it in one to beat that.  When that is done and the performance thereof duly authenticated the  Gazette will wire Mr. Merrill of file  fact, for Mr. Merrill doesn't think it  will eA'er be done. "Primrose Way"  hole Avas made by S. E. Hamilton in a.  single mashie shot from a point which  Avas a considerable distance back on  the bench above, and the- getting of  "Pons Asinorum" in a cinglo. stroke  would be very little more unlikely or  more of a chance than that.

'I  KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen----Fa for Fruit Growing  Town and Lower Valley.  0  Frank Ricliter is a visitor at the  coast this  week.  0. J. Wilson, of the"P. Burns Co.  'was in town last week on his way  through   to   Princeton.  Supt Morgan of. the G. N. R. spent a  few days in the valley during the  trouble with the freshets last Aveek.  Mrs. W. J. Stover, of California, arrived on Friday last on a brief visit to  her husband, returning bv tlie first  train.'    ' .        f  The Jessie MacLachlin concert announced for Saturday eA-ehiiig last  in Richter's Hall a\-'us cancelled, owing  to the uncertainty as "to train service  from Orovilltv  -..'��������� ......  On Sunday next at 3;00 p. in., Rev.  Mr; Ransonie will conduct memorial  service for his late Majesty, the King,  in the school house. All arc" cordially"  invited to attend.  Mr and Mrs. J. A. McAlpine and  children were in town on Fridny cven-  ing on their Avay to Spokane, where  they will spend a Aveek, and Mr. Me-  Alpine Avill consult an eye speci.dist.  We understand  that J. R. Sliaw  is  contemplating opening up a  business  in Hediey, and  will divide  his stock  between the two   towns,   leaving. I<\.,  , .-i  Sauve in charge at Kereineos. '  Prairie schooners and settlers still  continue to pass up.the Similkameen.  I.)r Jei'iiiyn, governinent veterinary  inspector was in town again this Aveek  passing .another buiicb of.horses.  Mr. Grant of the local bank staff has  been transferred to Vancouver. At  present- Manager Lawson is Avithout  an assistant, but is daily expecting  one from the Vancouver office to arrive.  The adjourned suit of Thornton vs.  Coleman Avhieh Avas to have been  heard at Penticton last'week before  Judge Swanson has been again postponed with costs:against the, plaintiff'  owing to the non-appearance of the  latter.  Hermann' Ulrich lost a valuable  horse during the high AA'aterlast week.  The animal, though impeded bv a set  af hobbles, sAvarn across to the island  opposite Mr. Ulrich, but is thought to  have been lost in attempting the return trip.  Mr. G. G. Keeler is building an addition to his store. The new portion  Avill be used as a restaurant and the  whole, of the remainder used as general store, increased business and a  larger stock has made the change  necessary.  A gentle flutter of excitement was  occasioned in toAvn on Saturday by a  team belonging to C. A. IS. Shaw,  which so far departed from their usual  decorous habits as to dp a run-n-way  stunt around several blocks. No damage was done unless it be to tin-estimation in Avhieh those same equities  were held bv their owner.  For a time last week-' Ave had no  trains, then 'for a day or two trains at  any old time.Now they appear to have  got down to a schedule, which' will  likely hold good till the damage to the  bridgeis repaired and the usual routine resumed. At present the train  for Orovjlle leaves here at 8 a. m.. and  for Hediey at op. in: Passengers and  express are transferred'a-t' the second  bridge. '  Hon, Thos. Taylor, minister of agriculture was in Keremeos on Thursday  of last Aveek. Mr. Taylor had been  making a.personal tour of inspection  in reference to the wagon and automobile road: which his department  purposes building from Vancouver to  Nelson through the southern part of  the province. The Avashouts'on this  line made it necessary for him to driA-e  from Oroville here and abandon' his  trip over the route west of here. He  Avas .joined here by Mr. Shotfordand  together they drove ovei' to-PdritibtPn!.  Dr. arid' Mrs. Boj-ce, of Kelowna,  were visitors in town durihgithe week  Tlie Dr. is ori oldtimer ih-Sputherri  B. C. and knew the Sirriilkameeii in  the early days. He was nibst favorably impressed with the changes  Avhieh have taken place here. On Friday they drove to Hediey Avhere the  Dr. paid the Masonic Lodge an'official  visit |n his capacity of D. D. G.

There is every reason to believe that this schedule Avill  be maintained for seA-eral Weeks as it  will take sometime to repair the injuries to the bridge and do away with  the necessity of transferring.

Dated this 1st day of April, 1������10.  GEO. ST'KKI)  .1. AV. SINCLAIR  Ottawa April 0.���������M. J. Butler, former Deputy Minister of Railways probably knoAVS as much about the Transcontinental Railway as anyone outside  of the Commission. He was for a Avhile  Assistant Chief Engineer of the Commission, and took an early opportunity to move out. Then he left tlie  Government service altogether and  novv is General Manager of the Dominion Coal and Steel Works at  Sydney.  Noav unmuzzled, Mr. Butler hirs  been '-mentioning a few things. He  addressed the Boston City Club recently, and told the club that the new  Transcontinental line will cost $350,  000,000 when completed. This is about  $75,000,000 .more' than Mr. Borden's  estimate of 1008. Mr. Borden figured  that the cost of the eastern section,  arid the guarantee on the Western portions would amount to $250,000,000^  The cost of the Mountain and Prarrie  section above the guarantee Avould be  $25^000,000. Mr. Butler's additional  $75,00.0,000 Avould: probably include  rolling stock and other equipment.  According to the last government  statement the Dominion government  Avill be responsible for some $45,000^  OOO interest paid Avithout recourse,  and some $],7.00(),000 for the Quebec  Bridge, making $62,000,000. This is  quite a raise from the $13,000,000 which  the. government, undertook in 1904  Avould be the maximum cost. But if  Ave subtract'this $62,000,000 Ave find  tlie1 sum of $88,000,000 left as" the cost;  to be charged against the company.  ThuS'Avhile the total cost of the road  will be, according to Mr. Butler, fully  100,000 per iiiile, the cost which will be  a basis of the fixed charges Avill be $80,.  000 per mile. On part of this the annual interest Avill be only three per*  cent. This is Avhat the government is  to receiA'e. On the part to be paid for  by,the issue of bonds guaranteed by  the government, the charge Avill exceed three per cent, for the bonds are  not sold at par. The money raised on  the Grand Trunk guarantee 'will cost  four to six percent. The annual charge  Avillnot be less than three and a half  per cent, or $2,800 per mile.  No trunk railway on this continent  is loaded with fixed charges nearly  so large as this. They are much more  than double the fixed charges of either  the Canadian Pacific or Canadian  Northern.

The engineering of this huge scheme was done  by C. A. Stoess and   the  work   completed under tin- efficient supervision  of J. W. Armstrong.    Tin- cost is said  to   have  exceeded  $100,000.

The one great essential in making  the land produce is a supply of water,  for the natural rainfall, of the district  Avould come very far-short of giving  the trees sufficient moisture, but it  has been ascertained that abundant  cultivation also goes a long Avay to-  Avards making a much smaller supply  of Ava.ter.dp than some are disposed to  use, and better results are obtained  Avitli cultivation and a moderate supply of  water than   by relying   upon a  westerly boundary along another  range, of land farther south and lower-  lying. These trees although looking  healthy and giving every promise of  doing well, suggested the usual long  wait before they Avould come into  biaring, but to-day we find them  covered, at the end of the blooming  period, Avith an enormous crop of  young fruit newly formed, and the  only care on the part of the owners is  how they are going to get them thinned out sufficiently to keep from  breaking the trees down Avith the  weight  of  the crop.     OnJ. J.-Aim-  hini until today they are a beautiful  sight indeed and constitute a tine setting for the handsome comfortable up-  to-date..-residence he is erecting.  A new section of tin- Keremeos Land  Company's holding to be brought under cultivation is that lying to the  west and south of the new townsite at  the station, and -occupying...the space  bet wein that and the river and westward to the boundary of the Price estate. In this portion'are the fine new  lots of T. .S. Dietitian. J. A. Brown,  \V. M. Frith. E. M. Crooker, T, C.  Brooke, J. A. Knowling and his  brother G. H. Knowling, G. Milburn,  Mrs. Scott, F. B. Gibson and otlieis.  The Price estate and the improvement.- thereon were also a revelation.  From the lane, its eastern boundary,  westward to the old Webster ferry  the whole flat ha.s been ploughed up  fenced and comfortable dwellings  erected. Avhile the water for irrigation  is supplied from the Keremeos Land  Company's big ditch. Among those  owning a.nd improving fruit lots in  this part are W. Diuidas, W. H. Cameron, Rev. A. H.Cameron. G. W. Cooper who planted last year and has a  handsome bungalow on the river bank  in a pretty grove. A. H. Harrison.  D. J. Innis; Mr. Moody and Mr. il. B.  Parsons whose lot is right up at the  ferry and who has made a most excellent showing in the few weeks he has  been at work on his lot this spring.  tHe odd avkbster place  But a section which interested the  writer, perhaps more than any other  Avas that of the old Webster ranch  Avhieh Ave never had the pleasure of  reaching before because iif its isolated  position across the river and the difficulty of getting across, although Ave  have ahvays been most anxious to get  there. Now, however-, thanks to the  efforts of Mr. Shatford, the government have bridged the Siuiilkameen  at tiy hme und the residents across  the river are no longer marooned.  cator, for in spite ofafeAV disadvantages the greatest of which is now a  thing of the past, the locality possesses  certain' advantages which from a fruitgrowing point of vit-AV are hard to  equal.  This subdivision was made by the  B.C. Fruitlands Go. who purchased  the land from Mr. Webster. Of the  new lots planted.'but.the location of  that owned by W. Bre.dner is a-most  desirable one in almost every respect.  His  holding is 20 acres, well-watered  W. H. Armstrong.  and sloping gently south and east and  the trees in healthy condition. The  tenant of the old homestead is A.  Robertson who is looking after the  old orchard besides tilling his OAvn lots  on the division further up the river.  Leaving the old homestead a. drive  up the river finds the river and mountain coming close together and thus  cutting off the upper and lower places,  but here again the government came  to the rescue and built a road along  the shore to join the tAvo portions. On SUPPLEMENT TO THE HEDLEY GAZETTE; MAY 19, 1910  the upper is found a regular new set  tlemcnt of prosperous fruit-growers.  One. disability, aiid a serious one. is  that,, unlike the. case of the Keiemeos-  Land Co., the..Price" estate or even the  lower Webster.estate, Avhere Webster  creek supplies irrigation, the. vendors  in the case of the upper place supplied  men like Quant -Bros.,' Pedy,; Robertson, Ulrich and others have "-'accomplished.'' The former in particular are  building and .have already built a long  stretch of flume (doing the work themselves) that represents both labor and  cash, and the number of trees they  have  planted and   condition; of- their  APPLE TREE IN RICHTER'S ORCHARD  no water with the land purchases and  the buyers an-left to shift for themselves in the matter of water; but they  arc grappling with the situation nobly  and no more credit is due to owners of  lots anywhere in the district than to  these,   for-it is  really wonderful  what  J. J. ARMSTRONG  lots   is most  creditable   and leaves no  room for doubt of early and complete  success rewarding their enterprise, and  industry.  In addition to those already  mentioned   on this  division   there are  Messrs. Schnerder, Young and others.  Of  the  older  oicha'ds   \vc   had no  time  to take any of them  in  except  that of Frank Ricliter and it is looking  in fine condition for an enormous crop.  He has t iken   out a good inany.of. his  peaches and replaced them with other-  trees of which winter apples form the  greater   number  these   being in  his  opinion   the most  profitable  planting  and  giving  year  by  year  the surest  crop.     His   vineyard   which  suffered  most during  the  hard seige   of tAvo  winters ago has been renewed but this  time  many of  the more  tender varieties    which   he    had  reared   and in  which he took special pride and reaped  good  returns year  by year until they  ��������� uccumbed  to the  stress of that hard  winter, arc now replaced Avith hardier-  varieties, 500 Niagaras, 50 Salems and  50 Ham-burgs.     Apples,   hoAvever,   is  what he  banks on for  profitable fruit  culture  and largo  as the   old orchard  was, he has young trichords coming on  in which the   Yellow Bellfiower, Spit-  zenbergs,  Northern  Spies and Wine-  saps  are  well  represented.    Many of  the Ben.Dayis trees in the old orchard  were" decapitated and Winesaps grafted on them. .., ;  '". ,';.. EXTENT OK TH[E. INDUSTRY  ; A better idi.-ii perhaps of the extent  of .the .industry may be obtained by a  statement of the; number of trees in  bearing and that have been planted  out and avU1 be in bearing in four  years more. These figures have been  obtained by careful enumeration of  each man's holdings, but it would take  up top much space to give them in detail sir we merely give the totals which  are,- apples 18810 trees, peaches7470,  other trees 6575. This does not include  small fruits or grapes.  ESTIMATE.OF THIS YEAR'S CROP '  An estimate of this year's crop from  Keremeos has been made liy Mr. J. J.  Armstrong as follows: apples 25 carloads; peaches -5000 boxes; cherries  1000 boxes,, plums 1000 boxes, pears  1000 boxes; Now that the fruit is here  steps are being taken to provide for  saving the surplus" crop and thus re.-"  diicing the chance- of loss from 'waste,  by going in for canning, and already  arrangements are on foot for canning  on a large scale.  CHARACTER OF THE RESIDENCES:V ,  That Keremeiis  is soon   to  become  noted as a. place of beautiful homes is  already quite apparent.    A   fine   example in  that direction Avas set  by  Frank Ricliter who ten years ago when  the   cor in try    had  still very limited  means,   of   transportation,    provided  himself Avith a beautiful dwelling, and  Manuel Barcello about the same time  put up a  house Avhieh  Avas much better than  might be expected for the  country in   the condition it  their Avas.  After  the railway  reached  the "town  there   Avas   more   encouragement to  build and  already the result is '-'.being  seen. The handsome commodious residence of J. J. Armstrong erected last  year was-a marked feature in that direction and this year the splendid residence of Geo,B. Clarke. nmv'ne.aring  completion, is to he followed by another  Avhieh Jps.:W. Armstrong is erecting,  the material  for which' is already on  the ground.    These  houses are of the  latest  design   and  Avill   have   all  the  modern  conveniences:   the   materials  are specially  prepared  on,, thecoast  and partly put together   before-being  shipped in.
