of City Council
Aquatic Association Apply for Lease of Site to Erect Grand
\ Stand for Regatta.
The regular meeting of the city
couqcil called for last Monday had
to bfe abandoned owing the impossibility of obtaining a quorum.
On Tuesday morning, however, a
special meeting was called. for the
purpose of considering a report
from the parks committee, the
mayor, Aid. Leckie, Stirling, and
Harvey, being present.
The (following report was read :
'' The parks committee recommend
that the -city council approve of the
proposal of the Aquatic" Association to erect a permanent grand
stand for regatta purposes on the
shore of the lake, south of the
Aquatic pavilion, and that a lease
be granted to the association of the
site of the said grand stand, under
such conditions as the council may
see fit; and they also recommend
that to assure the success of the
regatta the Association be given
control of the park during the days
of the regatta." The report was
signed by Messrs. A. S. Cox, G. C.
Rpse, D. W. Crowley, H. S. Collett,
and D. W. Sutherland.   .
The mayor stated that a deputation was to have waited on the
council from the Aquatic Association at the Monday's meeting.
They were anxious to get the matter through as soon as possible, and
were disappointed that a quorum
had-not been obtained. The park
committee had met "and made a
recommendation to the council,
and asked that a special meeting
be called to consjd.e' it. ; ;     .:
Some discussion'theri arose over
the various points raised in the
recommendation, and as to the
legality of the Aquatic Association
having control of the park during
the regatta.
Mr. G. C. Rose, who was present,
spoke on behalf of the Aquatic
Association. He said that last year
some unpleasantness had arisen
owing to the baseball team butting
in with a game on one df the days
of the regatta. The only way in
which the regatta committee could
run their programme free frqm interruption was for them to have
full control of the park for the time
being. If there was to be a match
the committee- should have the
arranging of it.
In the past, continued Mr. Rose,
the regatta had been run by a public committee. This had not
proved a success, for the, reason
that such a body had no continuous existence. After the regatta
was over no one cared what became of it. TH- bulk ofthe work
had fallen on the Aquatic Association. The best way was for the
Association to undertake the whole
thing and have full control. They
were anxious this year to have a
grand stand. It was practically impossible for the spectators to sit
all the afternoon in the hot sun
without some kind of a shelter.
Naramata had already erected one,
and if Kelowna was to hold her
own in aquatic sports, they would
have to provide similar accommodation. The Association had
thought of a temporary stand,
which could be taken down and
reerected each year, but the annual
expense of such a method had
been found too great In their
own interest as well as that of the
council, they had no wish to put
up anything unsightly, or which
would be a disgrace to the foreshore br their own building. If
the regatta was to be a success, it
was necessary to put up- some
good permanent structure.
Aid. Stirling asked if it was the
intention of the Aquatic- Association
to make a charge for admission to
the park.
Mr, Rose said that last year a
portion of the park near the lake
shore had been fenced, and the
jsame course would be followed
this year, though it would be
necessary tp fence in a little more
ground, as last year there had been
many people with exaggerated
ideas of economy, and, a correspondingly deficient tense of honor
who had sneaked in round by the
back. They would have to spend
over $ 1000 this year, and would
need all the money they could, get.
The question of making a charge
to the park itself had not been dis-
cusse'd. Last year 25c. was charged
for admission to the enclosure and
25c. to the stand.
It was proposed to make the new
stand 120 feet long by 80 feet wide,
to hold about 800 people. As the
stand was certain to be a success,
if would in all probability be necessary at some time to enlarge it.
Would the present council, asked
Mr. Rose, be willing to grant more
land in case an extension be
needed ?
This point was discussed at some
length, it being felt, that if say an
extra fifty feet were included in the
present lease for future extensions,
it would save unnecessary complications and delay attendant upon further applications to the
council. '
Aid. Stirling suggested that it
might strengthen the hands of the
Association if the council passed
their scale of charges. He had no
wish to hamper the Association in
the matter, but to help them.
Mr. Rose objected that th^s might
prove awkward if at any time a
future council should insist on placing the charges so low that the
regatta could not be run, except at
a heavy loss. '
The following motion wss eventually passed : "That a lease; be
granted io the Aquatic Association
of sufficient ground in the public
Park to the south of the Aquatic
Building to erect a permanent grand
standi and that the said lease be
for a period of nineteen years at
an annual rental of one dollar; and
that the Association be given control pf the Park during the days of
the regatta.'
Mr. Rose stated that in previous
years the council had made a grant
towards the regatta, and he would
like, on behalf of the Association,
to make the same request again.
For the past two years a sum of
$75 had been granted, and had
proved a very acceptable help
to the funds.' The new stand would
cost about $700, which would have
to laised by the Aquatic Assn., and
the financing of the regatta would
be much more difficult than usual.
The mayor said that the council
could not deal with the question of
a grant at the present meeting, but
he understood that a sum equal to
last year had already been agreed
upon. ,
The meeting then adjourned.
The high wind and a bucking
motor last Thursday involved Mr.
W. B. M. Calder and a party in his
launch in rather dangerous situation
Mr. Calder had just set out from
the' shore when his engine refused
to work. The Okanagan was just,
backing out from the wharf at the
time, and the wind drifted the boat
under the big stern wheel. The
yells of the crowd drew the attention of the engineer, and the
wheel was stopped just in the nick
of,time. Another revolution and
the little" boat would have been
crushed like an eggshell.
Mr. ]. B. Whitehead and family
were out in .a rowboat on the same
day, and were overtaken by the
storm. The Clovelly went out to
their assistance, and they were with
difficulty liff'ed aboard and brought
safely ashore.
The elections for the Manitoba
legislature resulted in a complete
victory for the Roblin government.
There are few changes in constituencies, but the government will
have about the same majority as
they had in the last house. The
parties now stand, 26 Conservatives
And 13 Liberals,

Moose Jaw, Sask.,
June 27th, 1910.
W. E. Scott, Esq.,
Dep. Minister of Agriculture,
Victoria, B. C.
Dear Sir:—
I have the honor to report as
follows:
I have been asked to give the
size of apple box used by Wenatchee and North Yakima growers
and shippers. The. cubical. contents of their box is much the same
as the B. C. You will find on comparison : length 18", depth 10_t",
width 11 £", inside measui ement,
but I am quite correct in stating
that they use a similar apple box
much approaching our pear box in
size, particularly for early varieties
frorr* the American side. The attention of the Dominion government and their inspectors should
be drawn to this matter.
The carload freight rate on mixed fruits North Yakima to Regina
is $1.27. per hundred pounds, from
Spokane $1.12£, minimum 24,000
pounds. California peaches are
selling to retailers to-day (20th) at
$2.75 per case; California plums
are selling to retailers at $2.50 per
case; variety, early Climan.
I saw two hundred cases of strawberries from the Victoria Fruit
Growers Association here to-day.
Arrived in good condition, very
nice stock, although baskets in some
cases were not as full... as they
should have been. They solcTto
theitrade at $3.75 per case. This
was part of a car for the McPherson Fruit Company, two hundred
cases were taken out at- this point
and balance of car went forward
to the McPherson Fruit Company
at Brandon. Were highly pleased
with the same.
I also'saw forty-five cases from
Hammond and Mission, were a
litde soft, otherwise alright. Prices
$3.75 to-day.
1 saw a lot of cherries, variety,
May Duke, from Vernon to-day,
selling retailers at $3.00 per case
of four baskets in plum box.
Gooseberries from B. C selling in
same case at $2.50. Jobbers here
claim price is too high for cherries
to sell freely. Could sell much
larger quantities if they could be
sold at $2.50 per case, but prices
asked by our growers and shippers
prevents selling lower than $3.
Areola, June 22—
Agent here reports nearly all
small fruit coming in from B. G,
and have arrived generally in good
condition this season/ Jamieson
& Rothwell, retailers here, report
small fruit as arriving in good condition from. B. C. Obtain all their
supply from there. R. L Clark,
J. R. Hallman and Francis & Co.,
retailers here, report strawberries
corning in good condition from B.
G, with few exceptions. Draw
their supply mainly from B. C.
I saw here some Vashon Island
strawberries with J. R. Hallman.
Were all mould and in bad condition, had arrived so. Retailers
here pay $4.25 per case Brandon.
Express rate from Brandon to
Areola $ 1.20 per 100 pounds; from
Winnipeg to Areola $1.60 per 100
pounds; from Regina to Areola
$1.20 per 100 pounds. These
points all have jobbing houses and
distribute from them.
All small fruits coming' in from
B. C. to this and other points on
this line contain altogether by express. The rate from B.C. is $2.80
per 100 pounds.
Regina, June 23—
Before leaving this morning saw
some Salmon Arm strawberries;
arrived in excellent condition, and
also some from Hammond and
Mission. Price to-day $4.00 per
case, markets bare.
I also saw some May Duke cherries from Vernon, stock in perfect
condition. Jobbers are going to
try at $3.00 per case, they cost
over $2.50 laid down here. Hold
about 16 lbs. net of fruit. Jobbers
state here they can buy Oregon
and Washington cherries 65 c. to
75c. per case of ten pounds f, o. b.
there.   California   apricots selling
to-day (23rd) $2.50 per case. Poor
sto'dk.    Claim they are not holding
up well.
Wolseley, June 23—
Agent here reports that no large
quantity of strawberries have arrived here this season, but what
came in were mainly from B. C.
Did not arrive generally in the best
condition. All coming by express.
Express from B, C. $2.65 per 100
pounds. In conversation with
dealers here, they report as not
being able to obtain a sufficient
supply this season. Latterly market
h_$.be_n practically bare of straw-
berried. They further report that
in the making up and bringing in
of mixed carloads' of fruit, which
they have done at this point, that
prices asked by B. C. growers and
shippers were so high that, they
were obliged to look to the American side for them. They could
pay the higher freight rate and duty
and lay down cheaper than from
B. C. in the past seasons. It will
be necessary for our growers and
shippers to look into this matter.
The advantage of duty and freight
rate should make it possible for
our people to sell these dealers at
prices remunerative to them ; more
especially now. with our good
crop.
Indian Head, June 25—
Agent here reports strawberries
as coming in good condition this
season. Dealers here report strawberries from B. C. arriving in splendid condition this year, but supply
has been very limited, and market
very bare generally. They would
draw all their supply of small fruits
from B. C. if obtainable. Prices
are being well maintained, not only
at this point, but everywhere generally where fruit has arrived in good
condition. *
Express rate from B. C. $2.55
per 100 pounds.
The following are the rates, from
the distributing points where jobbing houses are situated :
Express rate per 100 pounds from J
Brandon to Indian Head $1.40
Regina to Indian Head 70
Local freight rate per cwt. from
Brandon to Indian Head 60
Regina to IndiantHead     .24
Winnipeg to Indian Head .....    .86
Regina, June 25--
The following is the express rate
per 100 in carload lots from  Ont:
from Ont. to Winnipeg $2.25
Ont. Regina    2.65
Less than carloads—
from Ont. to Regina $3.05
"Winnipeg to Regina  2.00
; There are not many strawberries
coming ' in here now from B. C.
Dealers are rather disappointed
that more did not come in. Market
is bare and prices good.
The handling of strawberries on
the part of the express company's
officials could be greatly improved.
They handle too roughly, and carry,
crates on edge, which is disastrous
to small fruits after a long journey
to this point. 1 saw fifty, cases of
Montmorenby and May Duke
cherries from Vernon, Came off
this morning's express for jobbing
houses here. McPherson Fruit
Company, Stockton & Mallinson
and the Vernon Fruit Company.
Good stock packed in plum cases.
Were trying to sell at $3.00, but
afterwards put price down to $2.50
Eer case.   Were not moving at the
igher price. '
I notice some Kootenay strawberries on truck, were from Willow
Point, B. C. . I also noticed another
lot from Nelson, B. G, for Cypress
River, They apparently, had got
soaked with rain the night before
in transferring from car to truck
in thunderstorm. Would probably
not arrive in good condition at
point of destination.
Below is a report sent me by the
McNaughton Fruit Exchange, Winnipeg, under date of June 23:
- Strawberries. Have' had'four
carloads of Vashon Island, arrived
in excellent condition, sold for an
average price of $4.00 per case.
Very few B. C. strawberries coming
in how, and what are arrive in
poor condition. Our first car of
Ontario strawberries leaves St.
Catherines tomorrow (24th).
I met Mr. Rublee, manager;
Vipbnd 6t Co., Winnipeg, here today. He informed me that jobbers
in Winnipeg had received to date
(25 th) twelve carloads of Vashon
CoatiMtd on p«fs 6.
Board of Trade
Will Send Exhibit
At the meeting of the Board of
Trade held Wednesday evening,
the chief business was the discussion of the project of sending an
exhibit to the Canadian National
Apple Show to be held at Vancouver in November next. There
was a unanimous feeling that the
Board of Trade should get together
as good an exhibit as possible.
Mr. Albert Boyer, who had just
returned from the coast, said that
all over the province and up and
down the lake the matter was
being taken up, and Kelowna
should make as large a showing as
Orangemen Celebrate the 12 th.
The local Oraugemen were en
fete Tuesday, which was the glorious twelfth. The morning boat-
brought several visitors from Peachland, Summerland, and other points
down the lake. The members of
the Kelowna Lodge had assembled
an the wharf to welcome them.and
the Orange badge was very much
in evidence. After first , greetings
were over, a procession was formed, arid the whole party marched
to the Lodge room, where judging
by the sounds that reached the
street, a great time was passed.
In the afternoon another "walk'
possible, both from an advertising j headed for the park, where a meet-
and financial point of view.
The following motion was passed : " That the Board of Trade get
together an exhibit to compete in
the Best District Display, class 2,
and any other exhibit the board
may see fit." The first prize in
this exhibit is $500.
A motion was also passed that
the board grant $400 towards the
expense, and it was. also mentioned
that a good deal of outside help
could be expected from the land
companies and others, and that the
city council might also be asked to
contribute'.
A committee of five, consisting
of Messrs. Stirling, Boyer, DeHart,
Speer and McDonald was formed
to take the matter up, and with
power to add to their number.
REGATTA No. 2.
On Thursday, July 28th, the
people of Naramata will put forth
their best efforts to please those
who take advantage of the cheap
excursions arranged for that day
and visit this to«vn.
The charming lake trip on the
C. P. R.'s palatial steamer " Okanagan," is one of the.big attractions
for the day. The management
have the idea that the people between the lake and Sicamous Jet.
should be afforded at least one
cheap excursion down the lake
each year, and they propose to
furnish that excursion as well as a
bright, snappy five hours' entertainment at the Naramata end, that
will be pleasing to all.
* War Canoe Races.
The greatest excitement wets
created last year by the splendid
War Canoe (aces. The same tremendous enthusiasm was manifested
at the opening Regatta on June 23,
and everything points to these great
races reaching the high-water mark
on July 28th.
Life-Saving Crews.
Another of the most spectacular
events of the day will be the great
struggle between the life-saving
crews of the S. S. " Okanagan,"
S.S. " Aberdeen " and S.S. " York "
for the Robinson cup. The crew
of the Aberdeen won this race at
the last regatta and. they say:
" What we have we'll hold." This
will be a hot contest.
Baseball Championship.
The highest pitch to which the
excitement tan last year was ih the
final game between Kelowna and
Summerland for the Price Ellison
Cup. This year Hon. Mr. Ellison
not only presents a splendid cup,
but the winning team are to be
decorated with Silver Medals as
well. The strongest team on the
lake will be pitted against the best
team the north end of the valley j
can muster, and the winners of the
game will be considered the
champions of the valley for the
season. The probabilities are that
it will be Penticton versus Enderby.
This match is timed for 4 p.m.
Lots of Good Music
The Summerland Brass and Reed
Band has been engaged for the
day and the Vernon Band is expected also. The very best of band
music will, therefore, flow abundantly.
Sailing races, motor races, canoe
races, skiff races, swimming races
and all sorts of novelty stunts in
the water.
was held round the bandstan   .
County-master J. D. McCall, of
Peachland wa3 the first speaker.
In welcoming his loyal brethren he
said the smallness of the meeting
was due to the big demonstration
at Kamloops, and also the lack of
convenient boat service. The gathering had been hurriedly arranged
so late as Friday, He was glad to
welcome those who were there to
ihe celebration of the glorious victory of the Battle of the Boyne
Mr.. I. Mawhinney, a veteran of
many celebrations, said sixty years
that day he had had the pleasure
of taking part in the celebration of
that glorious victory which had given them liberty of speech and the
right to think as they liked. He''
had seen the day when a gathering
like the present could not have assembled without danger from a
mob of opponents. Their organization had made it possible for them to
worship in their own way and after
their own conscience. He had
been asked by one of the weaker
sex as he came dp.wri the road why
the1 Orangemen kept on celebrating
the twelfth of July. He had known
the time when it would have taken
a stalwart man to have asked an
Orangeman a question like that.
They kept on their drder because
they wanted to keep up the liberty
of thought and action which had
been fought for and won. He referred to the coronation oath, and
said that there had been attempts
made recently to weaken it. He
agreed that if there - was anything
abnoxious about the wording; it
should be altered, but they would
rather die than depart from the
religious principle it involved. They
fought for liberty of thought and
action but wished ^ to give offense
to none. A
The Rev. A.W. K. Herdman was
then called. He said it was very
much like cruelty to animals to expect anyone to stand up and speak
in such a hot sun. He had been
asked, he said,  by several  people
w_«y- such an of gauiaiiou ex
isted today, when its work was no
longer needed. Was it not useless
and out of date. The Orange
Lodge has its work to do today as
in the past. In the Old Country
they had a Protestant Protective
Association, and as they did not
have such an association here they
must have the Order of Orangemen. Something was necessary to
fight the agressiveness of Rome.
The Orange order stood, too, for
liberty, and respect for the law.
The sight of the smoke stack of
the Okanagan, brought the meeting
to a rather abrupt close, as the visitors had to get away down the
lake.
The national anthem was sung
—rather feebly, perhaps—but that
was of course due to the heat, and
not from any deficiency of loyalty.

Temperance and Moral Reform.
Canada, by means of joint effort from
sea to sea, is doing much towards reducing the evil of intemperance, gambling,
and immorality. These are the three
greatest evils, which, if effectively dealt
with by law and an educated public opinion, will do much towards removing
others which might be thoucht less in
importance .though not less in effects.
If' the bars are closed, which they will
be within a few years, other places of
resort must be established. At Eburne
the citizens propose to build a $50,000
hotel, without the bar, in order to preT
vent a bar, and to provide for the needs
of those who are there, and of others who
will in the near future populate the district. Vancouver Central Mission, on
Abbott Street, is to erect a $75,000 building, for a similar purpose.
It will pay the buiness men of a city to
invest in such concerns, and it will pay
the churches too. This same alternative
or substitute method is required everywhere.

a boy It all depends upon the boy. himself. You can judge the boy better by
liis appearance, his manner, his dress, and
the way he comes into an office than from
any description of him. Character shows
in little things, you cannot hide it. I take
boys by what you may call first impressions. I have sized* a boy up before he
asks me for a place. The removal or non-
removal of the hat,'the respectful and self-
respecting way in which the boy addresses me, the way in which he meets my
looks and questions, all give me an idea
of his bringing up, and the 'stuff' that is
in him. In appearance, 1 look for these
things: polished shoes, clean clothes, and
clean face, hands and finger nails. Good
clothes ore not requisite. A boy's clothes

for reference, a boy's teacher was the beat

another boy it always w.ll considered.
We like boyish boys, full of fun. The

PROMPT PEOPLE.
Don't live a single hour of your life
without doing exactly what is to be done
in it, and going straight through it from
beginning to end. Work, play, 'study,
whatever it is, take hold at once and finish
it up sqarely; then do the next thing,
without letting any moments slip between.
It is wonderful to see how many hours
these prompt people contrive to make of
a day; it is as though they picked up the
moments that the dawdlers lost.
If' ever you find yourself where you
have »° many things pressing upon you
that you hardly know how to begin, let
me tell you a secret. Take hold of the
first one that comes to(hand, and you will
find the rest all fall into line, and though
work may be hard to meet when it charges in a squad, it is easy to vanquish when
brought into file.
You may have heard of the anecdote of
the man who was asked how he had accomplished so much in his life. "My
father taught me that when 1 had anything to do, to go and do it," was the
reply.

In his sermon on Sunday night
the Rev. A. W, K. Herdman made
some reference to theOrange order
In addition to its insurance benefits
the order stood for brotherhood,
and for defence against the political
agressiveness of Rome. It believed
in equal rights for all subjects. Mr.
Herdman also referred to the King's
coronatoin oath which has been
the subject of so much controvercy
lately, and took occasion to express
some of his views of. the subject.
As an order the Orangemen were
opposed to any change in the accession oath. Though he might
differ many of these present, said
Mr. Herdman, he was of the opinion the offensive words should be
expunged from the oath, so long
as the essential principle be guarded by law, viz.. the protestant succession. He furthur said that if the
Catholics labored under any disabilities, they had brought them
about themselves. When they
had the power they had abused it.
The combined services of . the
Presbyterian and Baptist churches
will be held next Sunday as follows;

The Orchard City
Record Job Pritit
Department.
Mr. D. S. William-*, the editor of
the "Prairie Witness," of Indian
Head, who lately visited Kelowna,
publishes last week the following
impressions of his visit here.
The bluff front, the heights and
the orchards of Summerland recede
and once more Kelowna comes in
sight. The name is- redolent, of
fruit and flowers. Kelowna is situated on a great level stretch of
lake shore, and is a town of somewhere between two and three
thousand inhabitants. It is flanked
by creek, cottonwood and mountains, but by creekside and back
from the cottonwoods there run
several magnificent valleys along
which extent the most famous fruit
benches of British Columbia.
A traveller fiom either Indian
Head, Sintaluta, Wolseley or Grenfell is at home in two minutes for
the simple reason that apart from
lake, mountain, wood and cataract
and all their associations he sees
little or no difference between
Kelowna and one of these prairie
towns. The latter have sent their
contributions in the form of prosperous, alert, progressive men and
women.to Kelowna and what the
place is, is due in great measure to
their effort arid enterprise. Let me
tell you ahout them.
There are our old Indian Head
friends Mr. and' Mrs. Jas. Harvey
with their families, and Messrs.
Charlie and Jas. Harvey, Jr. Mr.
Harvey is a very extensive orchard
owner now and is one of the very
busy men in the valley. There is
Frank DeHart whom many knew
in Indian Head, one of the hustlers
of the Okanagan, who has made a
splendid success since, coming
here. He has been mayor of the
city and was a candidate for the
Legislature in last election.
W. M. Crawford, once a pforhin-
ent business man in Indian Head
as well as a member of her first
town council, is now making a
success of it here in a large stationery store. He is true to his trar
dition as Capt. Crawford, for he
last season coached and headed
Kelowna's fifteen oared.canoe crew
to victory over the rival teams from
Peachland, Summerland and Naramata. Charlie Harvey is putting
his knowledge gained in 'Varsity
halls of old Toronto to good use
as civil engineer, while he has wide
interests in fruit property and has
a beautiful, new home in the cosiest
spot of this cosiest of all towns.
Jas. Harvey Jr., genial and alert,
has a real estate office on Main St.
that is keeping the resources of the
district right to the front. Mr. arid
Mrs. R. A. Walker whom all at
home recall with affection, are here,
spending life's placid evening
amidst friends and flowers. It was
a treat- to meet them again. Messrs.
W. R. Glenn and Wm. Dalgleish
are " in the swim •' in commercial
life, and are selling everything in
implements from orchard hoes and
scufflers to auto cars.
Sintaluta has sent thither men
like Dr. W. H, Gaddes, R. Byrne?
and W. R. Trench. Mr. Byrnes
and family are removing to Vancouver, where Mr. Byrnes is establishing a fruit office and warehouse
for one of the Kelowna- fruit ccm-
panies.        .
Dr. Gaddes is probably one of
the busiest men in Kelowna. He
is" president, director and manager
of two big companies- The Central
Okanagan Land Co. and The Kelowna Irrigation Co. Grenfell has
sent Messrs. Copeland and Jones,
both of ..whom are making things
moye ; one in the former two companies, and lh« other in the tobacco
and cigar interest of the district.
Mr. Wm. Harvey and family, not
long ago living north of Sintaluta,
are now enjoying life to the utmost
with a.beautiful home in the pretty
residential part of the town.
My first look around was taken
when, " Jimmie" Harvey took
charge of a trip all over the town
site. There were to be seen the
usual interesting features characteristic of every Okanagan town, and
there,were sawmills, brick yards,
wharves, packing houses and canning factories, and there were too,
orchards whose production excites
wonder, and surpasses belief.
Among those owning orchards
within the tow n6ite are F. DeHart,
Jas. Harvey sr., T. W. Stirling; C.
Harvev and Geo. C. Harvey. One
of Mr. Jas. Harvey's orchards,
which is slightly over two acres in
extent will, according to fruit experts, yield more than a thousand
dollars worth of fruit this season.
Mr. Stirling has one—I am not sure
that it is within the tovnsite-—which
contain twenty-eight acres and from
which, I was told, $13,700 worth of
fruit was sold last year, the net
profit* being $7000.   I could mul
tiply instances if space permitted.
An old friend, Mr. Wm. Harvey,
for some years a teacher on the
prairies, drove me out thrbugh what
are called the K. L. O. benches.
The three initials stand for the
Kelowna Land and Orchard Co.
The benches flanked with pine
woods, are covered with orchards,
all in bearing... This is probably
the most amazing orchard scene in
the Okanagan Valley, and is a
picturesque and entrancing sight.
It is estimated that from the K.L.O.
orchards alone there will come
annually, in only a very few years,
some three hundred cars of fruit.
This fact opens up some very
interesting problems in the sphere
of transportation. Everywhere
through the long fertile benchlands
runs the life bringing irrigation

pine-clad uplands to the most pro- real estate investment, are the best in the

The intake is away up in the pine Westbank - British Columbia

his cabin beside the stream. Away

is the company's reservoir, where
the water is used later in the season when the snow has melted.

The climb«beside the cataracts
up through perfumed pines made
the beefsteak and strawberries disappear with an appetite that recalled the one f used to have in
those happy days of childhood,
when as juveniles we wandered
through the raspberries in the
Ontario woods or caught speckled
trout in the old river which grows
dearer as the years flit onward.
The Kelowna Irrigation Co. is
just now piping the water from this
stream across the valley and into
the Glenmore property which is
being put on the market by the
Central Okanagan Land Co. As
we drove back along the pipe line
great gangs of men were at work
along the whole valley into Kelowna; engineers and foremen
superintending and directing, cement mixers and stone crushers
working, teamsters hauling, Japs
and Chinese cooking and timekeepers keeping time and thus the
work grows. By the time these
great projects are completed there
will be another beautiful valley—
Glenmore—made to bloom and
blossom like the rose.
But the prairies call to duty. I
wish I had time and space to tell
you more. The last budget must
come to an end. The Okanagan
and the Shuswap must be left behind, the great divide mqst be crossed, the note of the last mountain
streamlet musjf grow dim; we wake
as from a dream, for the great fertile plains are around us and we
are home again.

Kaleden people are holding their
church, Sunday school and
Bible class services in the open air
during the warn summer weather.
The Sunday School picnic this
year, from. Enderby to Kelowna,
says the Enderby Press, promises
to be the biggest excursion which
has ever left Enderby. A special

IS ON THE MARKET. -
You will have to act .quickly if you wish to secure a lot in this desirable
sub-division, for it is selling rapidly.   The location is ideal, half-a-mile
from the. town limits and one  hundred  feet  higher,  commanding a
beautiful view of the Lake, City, and surrounding country.
The soil is a light loam, with slope sufficient for irrigation and drainage.
Unimproved land, as desirably situated as ours, is selling readily in the
fruit sections of Washington and Oregon for from $650 to $1200 per
acre.   Conditions are changing here; before'you realize it, this land will
have doubled, in price.
NOW IS THE TIME TO PURCHASE.
We advise you to inspect the property at once, and make your selection.
It is going fast. The property has been little more than a week on the
market, and at the end of the week, May 21 st, there were but nineteen
lots remaining unsold. Our town is rapidly growihg, and it will not be
long before this property will be practically a part of it, and we feel safe
'    in saying, the choice residential section.
We might also state that it is the Company's plan to reserve the adjoining
1,000 acres, to be improved and planted out in , one  large  orchard and
retained for itself.

760 complementary tickets, and he
estimated the number that slipped
in-1,500. All told the attendance,
is'given as 18,020. The purse with
the bonuses amounted to $121,000,

C.P.R.   Seeks   New   Route
Around Big Bend
A.party of 30 G.P;R. surveyors
started out last week from Beaver-
mouth to follow the Columbia river
up north and around the Big Bend to
Revelstoke. It is the intention of the
C.P.R. to secure a route round the
Columbia and so tap the vast areas
bf valuable timber in that district.
The importance of the movement
cannot be overestimated, as a railroad from Beavermouth, which
would be a continuation of the
Kootenay Central to Revelstoke via
the Big.Bend.wouldiopen.up the
large tract of country directly north
of the city. The.CP.R. would have
a very easy water grade all round
and could utilize the route for their
heavy freight traffic.
With the opening up of the Big
Bend, Revelstoke would at once
become a big commercial centre.
Apart from the convenience to the
GP.R. and the development of the
vast area of timber lands up north,
mining would be a great impetus
with transportation secured, and the
likelihood is that the smelterswould
be established here as well as other
industries. The result of the survey will be looked forward to with
keen interest.

The annual social of the Ladies'
Hospital Aid was held in the Park
on 'y Friday evening last. The
weather was all/that could be desired, but rhe attendance was very
poor, and the gross proceeds
amounted to only $73.55, against
$,110 last year. Surely duch a
worthy object should be better
supported by the people of Kelowna and vicinity. The membership of the ladies' aid is also falling
off, there being thirteen less than
last year Th,e membership fee of

Island strawberries. Had arrived
in good condition, and sold to the
retail trade at $4.00 per case.
When a car comes in they are distributed among the different jobbing houses, and sold to the trade
at once. Strawberries from Salmon
Arm, Creston and Kootenay are
arriving in small quantities, Next
week will see shipments greatly
increased. The lower mainland
supply is falling off. Season must
be nearly over. In the province of
Saskatchewan the markets have
been bare. They wanted more all
through the season, with prices
well maintained for reasonably
good stock.
VBshon Island strawberries are
disposed of mainly in Winnipeg.
Although goog stock, are not firm
enough to distribute out to other
points from there.
The more recent reports from
the middle states report a short
crop of all varieties of fruit, and
have the tendency to draw on the
supply of the Pacific Coast States
fruit, relieving these markets to
some extent. Although recent
reports from Georgia and Delaware
indicate large crops of peaches, j
There seems to be no dispositidn
on the part of American growers
and shippers to date to force sales
at veryl ow prices.
Yours very truly,
