Rapid Development of District
Makes Good Roads Essential
Many Improvements Being Made -  Central Okanagan Land
Co.'s Great Irrigation Scheme
If'we were to ask the question :
" What is" it the Okanagan needs
' most?" we venture to think there
'would hie very little disagreement
as to the answer. Transportation !
Roads ( And good highroads not
less than railroads. Land, and
plenty of it—vast areas of fertile
land, the majority as yet untouched
is not wanting. Climatic conditions
the fittest in the iDominion. But
before a country, however favored,
can develope to any extent, access,
must be provided to its. hidden
wealth, and lines of communication
' We in the Okanagan are fortunate atthe present time in having a
government which realizes in no
slight degree our possibilities and
our needs. Last year's substantial
appropriation for roads in' the
Valley was an evidence of this, and
this appropriation we hope to see
not only equalled but greatly increased in the next estimates. But
we are impatient—-the result ,of
progressing faster than it has evidently been in the power of the
government to keep pace with us.
Much has been done during the
past year or two, but much remains
to be done, and with urgent cries
from all directions for "more roads"
a~ little impatience is perhaps excusable. Rome, however, was not
built in a day.
In company with Mr. Hamilton
Lang, the busy roa'dj superintendent
for the pkanagan, and his lieutenant for; pur own district; Mr. M.
Hereron, we made the other day a
tour of inspection/through the
neighborhood.'. The services of
Mr. Dalgleish with 'his " Mighty
Reo " were .commissioned, and- a
course'tafcgn?along .Pendozi sfareet
in the direction' of the 7K. L. 0,
bench.   ;A./A AA7.A 'A..7
No sooner werei we,,outside the
city than abundant evidences could
be seen of the improvements which
are being gradually effected in our
old arteries of traffic. Strenuous
efforts are being made to render
"the crooked straight and the rough
places plain."    "A
It is only within the last year or
two that the government has seriously taken the road problem in
hand, and some of pur old highways present almost insurmountable
difficulties. The early settler, to
whom road-making was formerly
entrusted, naturally took the line erf
least resistance so far as he himself
was concerned, without regard to
the grades which would have to be
■- encountered .further on, and the
choice of a location for the road
in many cases has been anything
..but happy. ,
For the' sake of economy, too,
roads wefe made narrow, and the
flimsiest of culvferts and bridges
were put in. Fences have, now to
be put back to the full 66 feet
width, causing friction in some
cases, and awkward turns and.
twists straightened out. Much
money which might have been
spent Pn new roads has had to be
expended on first improving the
. old ones. Old wopden switchback
culverts , are being replaced with
cement pipe. Fills are being made
where possible to replace ricketty
bridge*. The benefit of all this
tyhat might be termed foundation
>Vork will be evident in the future,
when more attention can be paid
to the extension . of' the road
;7vjhe old serpentine Gulch road
..isfat present the only highway to
f the K. L. O. bench,, but a new and
straighter road, with, easier grades
is planned and already partly constructed. This will prove an enormous convenience to a,now thickly
settled district.
There is probably no more . inspiring sight, nor one better calculated to impress the beholder
with the vast possibilities of the
Kelowna district, than, the mag-
; nificent view from the residence of
Mr. E. M. Carruthers, the manager
of the Kelowna Land and Orchard
Company. . Entering from the road
and traversing a neat and well-kept
gravel drive through the beautifully
laid out grounds surrounding the
manager's residence, the visitor is
struck first with the pretty appearance of the house itself. Modelled
on what are for the district entirely
novel lines, it is built ta the level
of the first storey of stone — round
unchiselled cobbles firmly set in
mortar, and surmounted by a
second storey of green shingles.
But' the greatest surprise i? on
reaching the west side ofthe house,
where a truly glorious prospect is
unfolded to the eye. Immediately
below on the lower bench is the
great orchard of the company, with
its endless rows of uniform trees,
apples, peaches, pears, cherries and
other fruits, eloquent testimony to
the productive soil, the favourable
climate and skilful cultivation. Below this is a wide stretch of .fertile
bottom land with the silvery sheet
offthe Okanagan lake in the distance, beside which nestles the city
of Kelowna, and beyond the timber
clad hills of the West Side. A tiny
toy of a steamer. was just, puffing
its way along the placid water,
seemingly making no progress at
the great distance from which it
was seen. The crustiest grouch
th^t ever lived could not but have
felt proud of the country in which
he lived when viewed from such a
point of vantage. .
• It was a place to.linger,'but time
was pressing,' arid once moi'e the
engine of Mr. DalgleishV" Mighty
Reo" coughed impatiently, and
climbing aboard we headed for
what will probably always^bontinue
to be known as " Long's Orchard."
The whole district is indebted
to Mr.Long for demonstrating in
so forcible, a way what can be done
with skill and judgment in the way
of turning out the finest fruit on a
large commercial scale. The trees,
in the fine orchard were bending
tb the ground beneath their weight
of rosy cheeked apples. Although
the trees are only seven years' old,
we understand that over 150 tons
of fruit have been shipped this
season from 17 acres.
New roads are being cut in all
directions, giving access, to the
finest land which a few years back
was covered with scrub and timber.
One fine new highway, almost
completed crosses the upper bench
from east to west, and forms part
of the great road which is planned
tb give more direct communication
with Kelowna.
----- Descending to the lower level
again and re-crossing the reconstructed K. L. O. bridge, a turn to
the left was made along the Mission
road in the direction of South
Okanagan, and then to the right
along the old Swamp road—now a
swamp road no longer, since
material' has been brought down
from the hill and a long fill made,
resulting at the time we passed in
a stretch of hard and level road-
Returning from a hasty visit to the
pretty lakeside ranch of Mr. Hobson, a break was made to enquire
into the troubles of Fred Gillard,
whose place on the banks of the
creek suffers from the ,. erroding
action of the current at high water.
A party of Siwashes were camped
on the bank busy cleaning and
salting for winter fare an enormous
catch of ' kickinninies."
A few minutes run of the swift
and untiring car qnd town was
reached in time for lunch.    A
After refreshing the inner man
another start was made, this time
along the Vernon road, turning into
the Black Mountain road in the
direction of Rutland.. Here also
were the same signs of improvement, fences going back, and
straightening of curves. The first
bf the " Five bridges " is being rebuilt in line with the the straighter
road, and dangerous pitfalls at the
sides filled in. The branch road
to Rutland is another instance of
the oldTtimera' trail, whichwill need
considerable .fixing in' the near
future to bring It inf) ahaye for the
enormously increasing traffic which
passes along it.. From the Rutland
store to the right, onward toward
the headwaters of Mission creek a
good deal of work has been put in
this year, and a fine road now
exists, as far as " Billy " Huckle's
place, where forrrierly was nothing
but a trail through the bush.
Our journey was continued up the
Vernon road, past the Ellison
school to the canvas town of the
Kelowna Irrigation Co. Here a
large gang of men are engaged
laying the great 32 inch steel pipe,
which forms the first section of
.what will undoubtedly be, when
completed, one of the most efficient
and permanent irrigation systems
in the country. Dr. Gaddes, the
president of the company, who had
joined the party after lunch was
now our guide, and taking the road
to the left we followed the courste
of the pipe-line across the valley.
The pipe descends the hill on the
east like a black serpent, crosses
the valley in a trench arid ascends
again to the highest point on the
west. Here it empties into an
open concrete-lined ditch, which
skirts, the hill to the west of
Glenmore. the fine new property
which the Central Okanagan Lands
Company are developing at so
much expense.
The laying of the concrete ditch
is proceeding at a rapid rate, though
the greatest care is evidently being
taken to avoid anything in the
nature of temporary or slipshod
work. The foremen in charge of
the construction work, are. all experienced men men brought from
over the line, and as a result many
novel features have been introduced, making for efficiency and
economy of construction.
A rock-crushing plant, driven by
.a large gasoline engine is erected
at the foot of a natural rock sHde,"
providing abundance of excellent
material at very little cost of handling. After passing thorough the
crusher the.gravel is carried on an
endless bucket"chain to a revolving
cylindrical screen, which separates
it into various size's for different
purposes. From there it is. hauled
to the concrete mixer, which is
placed along side the ditch. The
concrete lining of the ditch is
moulded into shape by wooden
forms which are moved along as
each section becomes set.
Steel open fluming on concrete
piles is .substituted fbr the concrete
ditchAwhere it is necessary to
bridge any gully or depression in
the land. No wooden fluming is
to be used in the entire leugth of
the ditch, and even the laterals are
to be of cement pipe. Leakage
and waste of water from a system
of this kind is reduced almost to a
It does not require much power
of penetration to foresee a great
future for_ this section of the
country. 1 he valley of Glenmore
starts within half a mile of the city
limits and stretches in a northeasterly direction for some six or
seven miles, and comprising some
6,000 acres of first-class fruit land.
Already the company has disposed
of over $100,000 of the property,
and, said Dr. Gaddes, sales were
very active at the present time, and
many deals were in prospect. The
purchasers are for the most part
the best class of settlers from eastern Canada, the prairie provinces
and coast cities, as well as a large
number of local people.
It is the intention of the company
to plant a large block of the land
next spring, as a private orchard,
and for this purpose they are
securing the services of an orchard
expert, who will also look after the
planting and care of lots for purchasers who cannot immediately
take up residence upon their
A domestic water system is to be
^stalled, for which a reservoir
having a Capacity of 500 acre feet,
is to be constructed, with a separate
pipe system from this to each lot. '
At the present time about 240
men, all told, are employed on the
undertaking, including a gang of
some 35 who are at work oh the
dam at the headwaters of Mill
Creek, increasing the height, enlarging and strengthening it. A new
headgate is being, put in the creek
and from this a large steel flume
will connect with the pipe line.
This part of the work, it is expected, mending.
will be completed this fall.
Some of the purchasers ot lots
are ah"eady making arrangements
for fencing and other improvements
and it is the intention of the company to have the ditchin shape for
the turning on of the water before
the commencement of the irrigation
season next year.
What the bringing of so large a
tract of land on the very edge of
the town under cultivation, and the
large new settlement which must
spring up there will mean to Kelowna we leave the reader to conjecture. At present there are not
more than four or five houses in
the whole of this great valley; In
three or four years there will be a
hundred or more. :
And here again we aie faced
with the ever-present need for more
roads. Up to the present time the
only road from town has been
narrow and 'tortuous, with stiff
grades and an out-of-the-way
course. A new and . more direct
road, however, is; staked out, which
will make these difficulties things
of the past. Men and teams under
Mr. Hereron are now at work on
the section nearest town. When
completed the new road will
traverse the full length of the Glenmore valley, with cross roads at
We might mention here that Mr.
Hamilton Lang has just installed a
complete , portable rock-crushing
plant for use on the roads in the
district. A heavy steam road roller
is also included in the equipment'
This was badly needed and will
remove many of the disabilities
under which road work has hitherto been carried on.

Calgary People Use
Too Much Water
City Will Have to Instal Meters
Calgary people use too much
water, City Engineer Child thinks.
He doesn,t mean that the people
drink too much but they waste a
lot on the lawns aud in other ways
Seven million gallons are pumped
into the city's mains, and Winni-,
peg with a population of 125,000
uses about the same amount of water. Calgary's population is 45,000.
Mr. Child suggests installing meters
in the homes of those using city water.

Thursday, Oct. 6
Cadder Avenue        Abbott Street
Willow Avenue
Commissioner Metcalfe, writing
this week from Regina, Brandon,
and Winnipeg, says that peaches
are now ■ practically over, and
prunes very nearly so. Crabs are
scarce and in great demand at high
prices. Jobbers, he says, are discouraging the shipping of crabs in
other than the. regular apple box
or the half.apple-box, as growers
and shippers, when quoting and
8(shipping, do'not state the size or
kind of box, giving cause for dissatisfaction among jobbers and
retailers by the use of various sizes.
j! He thinks ii advisable for shippers
|ito use a uniform box, leaving no
ri | cause for complaint and misleading.
J3! Pears are in great demand and
J i prices are high. Apples of good
HI quality and pack are in good de-
' mand, and prices fairly high for
| j good stock, although some quotations from American points are
low. Apples in New York State
are reported as being bought at $3
per barrel, with the expectation
that prices will advance in the
near future.
Prices for Ontario apples as the
season advances are rising, with a
very short crop of poor quality.
Reports coming to hand from
various sources state that the East
must draw largely from the West
lor their supply of apples this season, and for these and other
reasons, the commissioner would
advise B.C. shippers lo hold firm to
present prices being asked for good
stock, and at the same time maintain the present high standard of
fruit being shipped.

t\ Preparations are advancing
rapidly for the location of the
demonstration orchards provided
Jiior by the appropriation of. $10,-
UGO included in the estimates of
last season. The provincial demonstration orchard scheme is based
primarily upon the well established
fact that many orchards planted
with the best of intention by more
or less experienced men are not
successful commercially. This is
happening at the present time not
less in British Columbia than in the
states to the south.
With the object of demonstrating
to planters of orchards the methods
best adapted for the assurance of
commercial success in their respective districts, the department of
agriculture therefore proposes to
co-operate with them under practical conditions. The demonstration orchards about to be established will, it is intended, be practical

calula^ed to avoid the usual causes
of failure, and to yield the owners
the largest possible returns for their
The work of selection and allotment has been somewhat delayed
by reason of the keen desire
manifested by almost all fruit
growers to enjoy the marked advantage which the scheme provides.
| To the island two orehards are
allotted, the one to be betwe'en
Cowichan and Nanaimo, and the
other in the Saanich peninsula
somewhere in the vicinity of Victoria. Four orchards are allowed
to the lower mainland ; one probably in the Delta, one in Chilliwack
and two in the DeWdney ridge.
The second orchards district is
to comprise Shuawap, Armstrong,
Nicola, Salmon Arm and Penneys
(Wallachin), two orchards going to
the constituency of Yale and two
to that of Kamloops, Either three
or four orchards are proposed for
the third official district, which is
to include Vernon, Kelowna, Summerland, Penticton and Keremeos.
The fourth district provides for the
Arrow district, Kootenay and the
Boundary country, East and N. E.
It is expected that  two orchards
will be awarded to the Slocan district,  one  being  given  on Arrow
and one on Slocan lake, with one
on the Kootenay lake in the vicinity

The Way the Carpets Are Made by th
Hand  Workers.
In.describing t'ersian industi k's Mr*
Hume Griffith, iu "Beliiucl iln- Veil l-i
Persia and Turkish Arabia." tells ii..m
the beautiful carpets of th;it i-ontm.
are made, of course wiili-uii* nm
chinery of uuy kind. The warp Is
stretched on ti loom, which is merely
a frame. The woof consists of stinn
threads woven and knotted by band.
without the aid of a shuttle. Wben a
row is finished it is pressed tightly to
the rest of the web by means of a
comb inserted into the warp.
"The weaver does not see tlie pattern as he works, for he sits wiib tbe
reverse side of. the web toward lilm.
The looms are generally Uept In an
underground vaulted room, often with
water running through the center. At
each loom three or four workers sit.
according to tbe size of tbe carpet.
Sometimes the workers consist of one
man and two children, and occasionally the owner uses imys and girls only
for the weaving
"I sat ou the lii^'li stool by the side
of a tiny girl, whose fingers were
working away so fast I could hardly
follow her movements. The overseer
was walking tip and down the room
calling out Instructions to the workers. To me it sounded a horrible, Incoherent jumble, but the children
seemed to understand it perfectly.
"The overseer held in his band a
paper, from which he was apparently
reading out Instructions. It was something like this:
"To No. 1. three blue threads, one
white, two green; No.; 2, four yellow.
one white," and so on, each child repeating after the •master' the instructions given. As it was all said in a
high pitched monotone the result was
confusing and deafening. But there
the little weavers sit, day In. day out.
week after week, in this dark, gloomy
cellar, kept hard at it by tbe overseer."
Its1 Marvelous Mechanism and the
Power That Moves'-, It,
We hear iiiucb from lime to lime of
the wonders of ibis or that complicated and Intricate machine, but there
are few pieces of machinery more marvelous than that of the common watch.
A watch, it.may be stated as a general proposition, is the smallest, most
delicate.instrument of the same number of parts that bas ever been devised. About 175 different pieces of
material euter into its construction,
and upward of 2.400 separate operations are comprised in Its manufacture.
Certain of tbe facts connected with
Its'performance are well nigh incredible' when considered as a whole. A
blacksmith strikes .several hundred
blows on his anvil ih a day and, as a
matter of course, is glad when Sunday
comes, but the roller jewel of a watch
makes every day - and day after day—
432,000 Impacts against the fork, or
157,680,000 blows during the course of
a year, without stop or rest—some
8,153,600,000 blows during the space of
twenty years, the period Ifor which a
watch is usually guaranteed to keep
good time.
But the wonder of it does not cease
here. -It has been calculated that Ihe
power that moves the watch is equivalent to only four times the force used
in a flea's jump. The watch power is
therefore what might be termed the
equivalent of a four flea-power. One
horsepower would suffice to operate
270,0(10,000 watches.
Furthermore, the balance wheel of a
watch Is moved by this four flea-power
1 43-100 inches with each vibration, or
3,558% miles continuously ln one year.
Not much oil Is required to lubricate
the little machine on Its 3,500 mile
run. It takes only one-tenth of a drop
to oil the entire machinery,for a year's
service.—Harper's Weekly.'

Great Vancouver Shov\. vWill
Establish Record
The extensive scale upon which
the management of the^ first
Canadian National Apple Show
have organized things will be
evident from the facts given below.
The show is to be held in Vancouver from Oct; 31st to Nov. 5th,
inclusive, and will without doubt
be a memorable event in the history
of fruit growing in the province.
The services of the famous military band of the 48th Highlanders
have been engaged. The band includes many stars in the Canadian
musical world.
The big arena of the Horse
Show building will be used to display the District, Limited two box,
two barrt-1, two basket, two jar and
plate contest, and box exhibits.
The ring is 75 x 199 feel, containing nearly 15,000 square feet. The
exhibits will be arranged around
the ring upon an incline q_ 45 degrees, having a perpendicular of
aboutJ 12 feet and , 12 feet base.
This arrangement will give a continuous display 12 feet wide, 12
feet high and approximately 450
feet long and will have the appearance of . a veritable cascade of
apples, having a fall of 17 feet
without beginning and without end,
which with the beautiful colourings
of the King of fruit will present a
scene never before equalled in the
history of the world.
Completely surrounding the show
ring are the spectators' galleries
having a total seating of 3,000. A
splendid and remarkable, feature
will be that every portion of the
exhibit can be seen from any seat
in the gallery.
The carload exhibits and plate
displays will be housed in a temporary shed erected on Alberni
street, This building will be 300
feet long, and longer if required.
The carload exhibits will be ar-,
ranged on a 17 feet incline, of 45
degrees around the four' walls of
the building. '
Tables six feet wide will occupy
the centre of the building and will
extend its entire length. They will
be specially constructed stair tables
for the display of the plate exhibits,
having three twelve inch treads
with two four inch rises on each
side. This arrangement, with a
building fifty feet wide will give a
passage way on > each side. ten
feet wide. Allowing thirteen feet
at each end for a passage way.
The plate display ^ table will be
250 feet long. Using ten inch
plates this immense fable will
accommodate 1,800 plates of
It is estimated by the secretary
of the firat Canadian National Apple
Show that there will be 21 ■ carloads
apple* exhibited at the, big exposition. The exhibition rules require 600 boxesTor a car, hence
there will be 'a grand, total of
12,600 boxes of apples on display.
There are 36 to 225 apples in a
box according to size and the
manner in' which they \are packed.
The average* would therefore be
about 130 apples to each box of a
total, of 1,638,000 apples in the
entire show. These apples will
average about two and one-quarter
inches in diameter, and if they
were placed in a ~ single row1 it
would be 698 miles long. If a
little boy should start to walk to
the end of the row, and walk seven
and one half miles a day it. would
require three months and three
days to accomplish the feat.
The owners of.these apples' will
receive $25,000 in prizes, or nearly
two dollars per box. . After the
show is over the apples will sell
readily at two to five per box, say
an average of $3.50 per box, or a
total of $44,100. Therefore the
exhibitors will receive approximately $70,000for the apples exhibited
at Canada's first National Apple
Now then, suppose that a greedy
little boy who lives in London
should ask his papa to buy all of
those apples ; how much would it
cost his papa at a shilling apiece,
and how long would it take that
little boy to eat all of them, eating
six apples a day ?
The first Canadian National
Apple Show management will give
a season ticket entitling the holder
to two admissions daily to the first
100 school boys and school girls of
Vancouver who send in the correct
answer to the above problem, and
a prize diploma to the school
whose pupils send , in the most
correct answers. Each contestant
must give name and age and name
of school of which he or she is a
pupil. »
A similar offer is made to the
school  boys  and  school  girls  of
LVictoria, and to the  school boys
and school girls of British Columbia
living outside of Victoria and Vancouver.
Ihe answers must be addressed
to :
Canadian National Apple Show,
Room 7, Winch Building,
Vancouver, B. C,
and on the lower left hand corner
of the envelope must be the" words
" Vancouver Contest," or " Victoria
Contest," according to the home ot
the little boy or girl. Those living
outside of Victoria or Vancouver
will simply write the worcl 'Contest'
on the envelope.
A handsome souvenir cane and
pennant will be given by the
Salmon Arm, B. C. Fruit District to
each and every contestant sending
in the correct answer. The answers
wiil be arranged alphabetically as
to name of contestant and the
pennant-canes distributed at the
Horse Show building during the
entile week of the National Apple
Show. Any little boy or little girl
who has sent in a correct answer
may get the prjze at the Horse
Show building at any lime during
the week of the Apple Show. All
he or she will have to do will be
to announce his or her name to the
" Apple King " who will be there
for the purpose of distributing
All answers must be received at
the Secretary's office, Room 7,

A Study in Heredity.
Prof. W. C. Ashcroft in a talk on -alcohol in the Sunday Times relates the following:—
The most forceful presentment of the
consequences of drink and the blessings
of temperate life that I have seen came to
my desk a few months ago in the shape
of a little book giving a parallel in heredity. Its title is "Jukes—Edwards," and
the author is Dr. A. E. Winship, of Boston.
The study is that of two families, the one
notorious and the other noted. The one is
the family of Jukes, a name given to a
Hollander who' came to this country and
settled in the state of New York something like two centuries ago, whil«the other
is the family of Jouathan Edwards, the
great New. England theologian and prea- f
cher of colonial days.
Jukes was one of those fellows such as
is usually conspicuous about saloons, who
got drunk on occasion, would swear innocently and tell a dirty story in. a way to
make the boys laugh. He was not regarded as a good example, of course; and being thought worse to himself than to any
one else, he was held as "good hearted,"
whatever that may mean. Jukes married
and became the first progenitor of a family of about 1,2C0 parson*, most of whom
figured in the criminal records of New
York. Some of them became thieves, some
murderers, many of them paupers, and
many of the women became prostitutes.
The family has cost the state of New York
in court trials, and for maintaining them
in poorhouses, asylums, jails, and penitentiaries, $ 1,250,000. or over $ 1,000 each.
The Edwards .family, on the other hand,
reached the number of 1,400 persons. They
became famous as college presidents, governors bf states, judges of courts, congressmen, members of legislatures, railroad
presidents, merchants, lawyers," doctors,
preachers, teachers, farmers, etc. They
filled places of usefulness and contributed
to the up-lift of society in every station of
life. And the only Regenerate of the 1,400
if he can be rated as such, was Aaron Burr
jurist, United States Senator, and Vice-pres->
idenr, who failed to reach the presidency
by only one electorial vote. The Edwords
family were all producers of wealth and
contributors to the general thrift of society.
They were the products of the beneficent
influences of education and religion.
But Jukes and his family were products
of drink and its accompaniments, of the
baser tendencies of a promiscuous and
aimless life. They wrecked not only themselves, but sapped the wealth of the public.
This parallel study of the tendencies of
drink on the one hand and of education
and religion on the other, which I have |
gone over all too briefly, has b.een set down
in a book; but these deadly and startling
parallels are to be found in this and every
other community where intoxicating liquors are sold as beverages.
AlcoholiHtn Without Intoxication. -
Drunkenness is ordinarily of brief duration and does not long outlast the presence of the intoxicating agent in the blood
and tissues. It is essentially diffrent from
the cronic poisoning (known as alcoholism)
which has no necessary connection with
drunkenness, but may and does very often
develop in persons who have never been
drunk in the proper sense of the word.
The degenerative changes known as chronic alcoholism may vary from relatively
slight modifications of the nutrition of the
cells up to the total destruction of the
essential tissue elements.— W. C. Sullivan

On account of the high price of feed and the enormous
demand7 for Canadian Butter, there is  going  to  be  a
scarcity of Creamery Butter this winter. Doubtless many
merchants will be short in consequence.

reliable firm, and we will be supplied with
throughout the winter months. In this case, as in all
others, we made Quality the predominent factor when
buying, and will guarantee to give you the Best Alberta
Creamery Butter.    The price is now and will  remain
40c- Per Lb.
If you prefer
We confidently state that we buy from the majority of
the good butter makers in the district, and can generally
supply you with First-class Fresh Dairy.
For those who, must have fresh Butter, direct from the
churning, we would suggest EDEN BANK, which we
get every week by express.    Per lb. 50c.
