More Enthusiastic Meetings
on Irrigation Question
Unanimous Support From Every Quarter
. In continuation of the series of
^.meetings planned by the special
committee of the Farmers' Institute
for tne purpose of ascertaining the
feeling of the farmers generally on
the subject of the government taking control of the problem of
irrigation, the districts of South
Okanagan, Benvoulin and the
K. L. O. bench, held fairly large
representative gatherings on the
evenings of Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday last. As has already
been explained a resolution embodying a concise statement of the
proposal which is to be presented
to the provincial government was
drawn up by a Farmers' Institute
sub-committee and was submitted
to each meeting in succession for
discussion and endorsement.
The resolution, which we repeat
here for convenience of reference,
and for the benefit of those who
have not followed' the movement
from its inception, is as follows:
" Whereas the existing conditions
in connection with the control and
distribution of the water for irrigation purposes are<far from satisfact-
, ory in certain districts in British
Columbia, resulting in excessive
waste, inadequate supply and inequitable distribution, often leading to costly litigation;
"And whereas large tracts of
land remain undeveloped in conse-
quense of the lack of systematic
conservation:
"Be it resolved that we, the land
holders of the Okanagan district
respectfully request that the Government of British Columbia'' take
immediate action with a view
to solving the problem by introducing a system ' of Government
control, conservation and operation of'the water supply for irriga-
' tion purposes, by construction of
reservoirs and distributing systems
in this district."
South
Okanagan
Support
Gives its
The meeting at South Okanagan
was held on Wednesday last, Mr.
Walker being elected to preside.
Most of the farmers and fruitgrowers in the neighborhood were
represented, and the resolution was
well discussed from many points
of view.
Dr. Dickson, who was present,
gave a brief resume of the movement, more particularly as regards
the attitude both of the delegates
and of the representatives of the
government at the recent Irrigation
Convention at Kamioops. He emphasized the difficulties of the
present inadequate system, and
in a clear and lucid way pointed
out the enormous advantage to the
district generally of an efficient
governmentconstructed storage and
distributing system. But before
that could be obtained it was necessary for the farmers to be unanimous in their demands, and to
show the government that they
had the people behind them in
taking up the problem.
Mr. C. Smith also spoke at some
length in favor of the scheme, Dr.
Jones, Mr. Butler, Mr. Harvey, and
others taking part in the discussion.
Eventually on the proposal of
Mr. Hobson, seconded by Mr.
Mallam, the resolution was put
to the meeting and carried unanimously.
Mr. Walker,. the chairman, announced that he had been in communication with Mr. E. Gray-
Donald, the government surveyor
at present working on the Mission
creek   district,   and   they   would
Erobably have the pleasure of
earing him speak to them on the
the subject in about two weeks'
time.
Benvoulin Meeting
On Thursday evening the Benvoulin school-house was well filled
with farmers and fruit growers of
the district, and from the readiness
with which the discussion was
taken up, it is evident that the pro
ject has awakened no little interest
in that neighborhood.
Mr. Pridham was elected to the
chair. Briefly he explained the
object for which the meeting had
been;called. The Farmers' Institute
had taken the matter up with the
idea of ascertaining as far as
sible the views
the question of
undertaking the
distribution of
The   difficulties
pos-
of the people on
the government
conservation and
irrigation " water,
connected    with
irrigation were well known to most
people and especially to old-timers,
and it was with a view to overcoming these difficulties that they
were anxious to push forward the
present scheme. The object was
to show the government that they
wished them to take up the question, and he urged that other districts be approached to induce them
to work together on the same basis
that they were doing.
The resolution as given above
was then read over.
The discussion followed very
much on the lines of previous meetings.
Mr. A. Patterson was strongly in
favor of the proposal. He thought
it would be a great benefit to the
valley generally. If a proper system
we.re put. in everybody would be
able to get water when they wanted
it. He did not think the old record
holders would lose anything by it.
Mr. Hardy, whose opinion as an
old-timer was asked, said that at
pre8ejntj^e w£».able.toyiet:AlI.v|be
water he. wanted. He advised
caution in dealing with the question,
and said that at any rate if the
government did take over the
work, they should give-some preference to the early record holders.
Mr. McEachren, in reply to the
last speaker, said they had to look
into the future, as conditions would
not always'be the same. As more
and more demand was made upon
the water it was quite possible that
they would not always be able to
get sufficient. If the government
undertook the building of storage
reservoirs, they would be able to
rely on a constant supply at all
times.
Mr. Woollaston, whose experience
in irrigation work made his opinions all the more valuable, threw
some interesting light -on the possibilities of storage reservoirs in the
hills and the available water supply
in the creeks. Speaking in his
private capacity as a ranchei in the
district, he said he had perhaps
been here as long as anyone, and
had always been able to raise good
crops. He had had his little difficulties in respect to water, but had
generally managed to get along
pretty well. With tespect to the
resolution, he said that if the government did take over the water
question, it should be clearly understood that the old record holders
should not be taxed anything like
those who had not the benefit of
free water. He thought, too, that
the charges should be graded so
that those whose land was easily
irrigated would be paying a low
rate in comparison with those on
whose places it was more difficult
to place the water.
Mr. M. Hereron was one of the
chief speakers in favor of the pro-
prosal. He pointed out the wastefulness and inefficiency of the
present conflicting systems, and the
great advantage it would be to the
country if the government could
be induced to put in a modern
concrete system which would be
large enough to afford an ample
supply to everybody.
Mr. John Carsorso, one of the
oldest settlers in the district, told in
his way, how in a certain poor and
unproductive . district the introduction of a fine irrigation system
and a plentiful, supply of water
had changed a struggling settlement
into a prosperous community. The
promoter ofthe scheme, a Jew, had
certainly got rich out of it, but he
was a benefactor to his country.
He  thought it would  be .a good
thing if the government took over
matters here, and he would be
willing for his part, to pay for the
privilege of having a good supply
of water whenever he wanted it.
Dr. Baker said that it was not
wise to look at this question from,
a purely local standpoint. The
success of any community depended very much on the success of
everyone in that community. They
should therefore regard the question in a very much broader sense
than some of the speakers had
been disposed to do. They were
proud of their province.proud of its
wealth of timber, and mines, and
fisheries, and other great industries,
and of its great agricultural resources. As agriculture in many
places was dependent upon irrigation, then the subject of irrigation
was of vital importance' to the
whole province. They should approach the matter as such and not
from a purely local standpoint. So
far as the old-timers were concern*-
ed, what was it that was making
the market for their hay ? What
was it that was making their farming successful, enabling them to
realize high prices for their produce, and enhancing the value of
their lands ? Was it not because
other land in the district was being
taken up, and more settlers coming
in ? They could not afford to take
a purely selfish view of this irrigation question.
' If we studied irrigation at all,
continued Dr. Baker, we were
obliged to admit, that we were as
yet only approaching the subject.
" Think of the hundred of acres
of valuable land ih the district as
yet unoccupied, and of the infinite possibilities which lie in them.
Arid think of the amount of water
Which will be required when these
acres are made productive." HoW
iwfere we going to get this water ?-
W^ could .not build reservoirs for
ourselves. Who, then could do it?
That was what they were there to
discuss. Only the government had
the ^ money and the corps of
engineers necessary to undertake
such a work. And if there should
be a change in the government, we
could rest assured that the people
of British Columbia had intelligence
enough to manage their affairs. He
went on to refer to the great waste
of water, entailed by the present
makeshift systems.
As to the cost, they did not
want something for nothing, and
the men who were coming in
would be willing to pay for the
water, and not ask those who were
enjoying the privilege of free water
to pay for them. .They must be
unanimous in their wishes, as they
could not ask the government to
undertake the work while they
were undecided amongst themselves. A serious problem was
confronting them at the present
time, and they must meet it in true
western style.
Mr. Speer also supported the
proposal.
The resolution was then put to
the vote, and carried withont opposition.
Westminster Exhibit
Will be Big One
Nearly Carload of Fruit to be
Sent from Kelowna District
. Kelowna's sweeping success of
last year at the provincial exhibition
at New Westminster has -encouraged the A. and T. Association,
who were responsible for the exhibit, to make a still greater effort
to capture the honors at the forthcoming show which opens on the
fourth of next month.
7 Mr. Albert Boyer, as already
mentioned, has been appointed by
the association to take charge of
the exhibit, with the able assistance
bf Mr. A. R. Muirhead and Mr.
Dickson. These gentlemen are
busy gathering fruit from all over
the district, and judging from the
specimens already collected there
is certainly some magnificent fruit
produced this year. As gathered
the fruit is being shipped to Vancouver to be placed in cold storage
until the exhibition.
A special feature is, of course, to
be made of the " District Exhibit,"
which demands five boxes each of
apples, pears, plums, and peaches,
three boxes of crabs, and a plate
of every variety of apples'* which
can be gathered together. In addition to quality of fruit, a large
proportion of the points are given
for the most artistic display of the
exhibit in the space provided. As
most of the fruit-growing districts
in B.C. are entering in this class,
the competition will naturally be
very keen.
Another important section is in
the " five box classes," and anyone
having good specimens of Belle de
Boskoop, Grime's Golden, "King,
Josathan. Northern... Spy,. Ontario,
Red Cheek Pippin, Spitzenberg,
Wealthy, Wagner, Yellow Newtown, or Gravenstein, should communicate with Mr. Boyer, who will
arrange to purchase the required
quantity. Each class however, will
be entered in the growers' name,
who will thus get full credit fpr any
successes. The same also applies
to the " two-box pear classes," the
varieties required being Bartlett,
Bosc, Clairgeau, Howell, Doyenne,
Cornice, Louise Bonne, B. Hardy,
and B. Boussock.
It is also determined to enter as
many of the plate classes as possible, and altogether, nearly a carload of fruit will be sent down;'
Race Programme for
Coming Fall Fair
Will be Bigger Event than any
Previous year
Active preparations are being
made for the Fall Fair, which is to
be held on Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, Sept. 19th, 20th and
21 st. A large addition has been
made to the exhibition building
which gives a very considerable
increase in the space available for
exhibits. A bigger show than ever
is anticipated this year. Particularly should the fruit section be larger
than in previous years, as this
season's splendid crop makes the
gathering together of a good collection of apples and other fruits a
comparative easy matter.
Since the issue of the catalogue
a good deal of interest has been
shown in the various classes, and
many sections which in the past
have been neglected, will, it is
confidently expected, be well represented this year.
The programme of >the races,
which take place on the Tuesday
and Wednesday, has just been
issued. The prize list for the races
alone runs up to over $1,000, and,
given suitable weather, lovers of
racing—and who does not love to
see a good horse race — should
witness some first-rate sport.
The programme is as follows:

Commends Kelowna
Firm's Packing
Meeting on K. L. O..Bench.
A large party of ranchers of the
K. L. O. bench met on Friday evening at the residence of Mr. Allen.
Mr. Reekie occupied the chair and
introduced the subject by reading
the above resolution which he put
before the meeting for their consideration.
. The discussion took the form fo
a friendlv talk 6n irrigation generally in which several interesting
points bearing on the matter were
raised. The chief speakers were,
Mr. Reekie, Mr. Allan; Mr. Wooll-
aston, Mir. Muirhead, Dr. Baker,
and Mr. Dendy.
On being put to the vote the resolution was carried unanimously,
and the meeting closed with a vote
of thanks to the chairman, and to
Mr. Allen for his kindness in placing his house at the disposal of the
meeting.
An important seizure of smuggled opium has been made by the
custom officers at Rossland. Hundreds of pounds of Chineese tobacco
and a quantity of smuggled Chinese
whiskey were also included in the
spoil of the authorities.
A telegram received by Messrs
Stirling . & Pitcairn, fruit packers
and shippers in this city, from Mr.
H. H. MacLeay the representative
of the Central Okanagan Lands.
Ltd., in Eastern Ontario and Quebec Provinces, 'comments on the
good condition of the fruit upon
its arrival at Sherbrooke, Quebec
The Central Okanagan Lands Ltd.
is sending exhibits of fruit to all
the important fairs being held in
the East, and at a banquet held
during the Sherbrooke Fair the
first week of this month, the Dominion Minster of Agriculture congratulated the packers, Messrs.Stir-
ling & Pitcairn, and paid them the
highest compliments upon the
excellency of the fruit and on the
superior pack which carried fresh
fruits three thousand miles.
The picnic over the lake last
Thursday to the Sunniside Ranch
organized by the Ladies' Hospital
Aid proved to be a most enjoyable
affair. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell and
their sons spared no effort to entertain their gnests. Fruit was provided liberally and highly appreciated by the visitors. It was rather a
pity that more did not avail themselves of the opportunity of spending a pleasant afternoon and at the
same time helping to swell the
funds. The proceeds amounted to
$28.70.
Since April of this year it is estimated that 15,000 hens have been
sihpped by the G P. R. and Canadian Northern from the East through

B. C. Comparatively Free
from Injurious Pests
The Dominion govemmemt intends to greatly enlarge its system
of horticultural inspection in British
Columbia and also to double the
size of its fumigating plant in Vancouver. The new fumigating station will we expect, be ready by
October I.
This announcement was made
by Dominion horticultural inspector Wilson, who with W. Gussow,
the Dominion's expert botanist and
chief of that department, has just
completed a three weeks inspection tour of Vancouver island and
Okanagan orchards,
i While some fungoid diseases
were found both agreed that British
Columbia was fairly free from, inj^
orious insect pests. This years fruit
crop in Okanagan is abundant,
and in young orchards of excellent
quality, says Mr. Wilson. Mr. Gussow left for Ottawa.
The Rev. C. J, Speer, D. D., of
Toronto, is here for a few weeks,
visiting his brother, Mr. T.G. Speer.
Dr. Speer is a prominent figuie in
the Methodist church in Canada,
having been at one time pastor of
the big Metropolitan church in
Victoria, the largest Methodist
church in British Columbia. For
the past fifteen years he has been'
stationed at leading churches
in Toronto, and is at present in
charge of the High Park church
there. Dr. Speer is to preach Sunday evening next in the Methodist
church, and on Monday, Sept. 12th,
has kindly consented to give a
lecture in the Opera House in aid
of the hospital.

have been unusally industrious all

the cotdest winter for years, and ,
there appears to be harmony amongst the old timers in this opinion,

Conducted by the Ladies of the Kelowna branch
of the W.C. T.U.
The W.C.T.U. meet every second Tuesday of the month at the home of one or
ofher of the members. Visitors are always
welcome.
Into the delightful suburban home of a
Chicago lubge, a group of neighbors dropped one evening, for an informal call.
A vivacious young woman immediately
proposed a game of cards.
Come, judge, she coaxed, gaily, play a
game with us to pass the evening.
Indeed I won't, promptly returned the
judge.
Are you such an old fogey that you
won't play cards.
No, I'm not an old fogy.
You think cards wicked then, do j-ou?
Not at all,
Why don't you play then ?
Well, blurted out the judge, crowded
into a corner, I've watched you card players for a long time, and I've never yet seen
a bunch of players that could get through
a whole game without losing their temper
There's always someboby complaining of
llie way somebody has played, even in the
most friendly company. I won't bother
with anything that spoils one's temper so.
But, judge, still coaxed the woman, you
k.'iow we are your guests, and you ought
to play a game with us just because we
want you to.
Yes, you're my guests, echoed the judge
his spirit rising noticeably higher, you are
my guests, and that's the reason why you
ought to think of my preference forspending my evening. Why shouldn't you do
what I want to—sit down and talk of
something sensible?
There's jnst one reason why you play
cards, and that's because you are so
empty headed that you can't talk. You
don't know enough to spend an evening in
any kind of conversation, and so rou have
to kill time by fingering the useless cards.
You can do as you please, I am going to
the library to read.
Afterwards the judge explained why he
fcrsvi ore cards:
I never played much,   and   was   always
a poor hand at the   business.    One   evening I sai down to play a   game with   my
wife, my son, and a lady friend, neighbor.
Pretty soon I made some   misplay.    My
son groaned, Oh, father, that was wretched.    I turned towards the young  woman;
her fnce was white with anger.
Wa; that such a very bad play, I asked?
It was inexcusable, she almost hissed.
I laid down my cards, and said  Here is
where  I   quit.     If  this  paltry  good-for-
nothing game can raise such a tempest  as
tin's  over a   blunder  that   I   am liable to
make any time, I'm never going  to  touch
it again.    I know 1   can't  play  very well,
and   I'm   not   going  to   put myself into a
position to be scorned   anymore   like   this
for an ignorance that isn't worth curing.

A imatter of some importance
to the people 'generally'bf the
district has Ibeen! brought to our
notice^ several times during "the
past summerland;-is-again ;in
evidence. The salubrious climate of -the iQkanagan has
attracted attention'-practically
all over Canada,for its its curative properties uin .cases of
consumption and;- other chest
and rheumatic diseases, and
many have'come.seeking health
and cure. To 'all "these we
would extend the hand of sympathy and .welcome, ; trusting
that few will fail to find what
they-may have travelled,far to
seek* i and * we -would i urge that
proper care arid attention be
given them, so that while ien-<
deavoring|itO' 'cast '-aside >the
dreadful scourge t)f the white
man,, the; lives df,those- around
them may>not be< endangered.
This, ;we had hoped, would
have-beennproperly attendedto
long ago, but it does not appear
to i have been taken in hand by
whoever, iare' the, proper authorities* wthis regard. We would
not'like-1&hurt anybody's feelings* by rappearirjg too pressing
in the matter, but"a 'case "in
point certairily deserves immediate, attention.

Over one hundred applications
have been received by the Vernon
council for the position of city clerk
and treasurer at the salary of $ 120
per month.
A pest, which the ranchers in
the lower valley will have to wage
war against, has made its appearance in flocks of small birds, some
what resembling black birds in
color and sue, which attacks the
apples as they begin to color in
the orchards.—Hedley Gazelle
These are strenuous days on
the Okanagan railroad. Night and
day, seven days a week, the freight
trains are kept moving to handle
the traffic, and even then there are
freight tie-ups that are most exasperating. It was not often that even
the old molasses limited would
make such _. record as this: A car
of brick was billed from the
Enderby yard on the sixth for
Vernon. Four days later the car
was lifted from Enderby and started
towards Vernon. Going at the
ordinary snails pace, the regular
reaches Vernon in from an hour
to an hour-and-a-half. It is 25 miles.

one or two severe attacks Sunday,
and seemingly getting over them,
got up and kissed her father and
mother, and laying down again,
died almost immediately. Much
sympathy has been shewn the
parents in their sad bereavement.

The government is putting another road through Mr. Bulman's
property. This will be a great
convenience for the settlers in the
district.
At the League meeting on Monday evening an interesting little
ceremony took place in the shape
of a presentation to Misses Annie
and Edie Gay, as a token of the
esteem in which they are held by
the members of the league, and
as a souvenir on the occasion of
their departure from the district to
take up their residence in Vancouver. Miss Annie Gay has been
secretary of the League since its
commencement, and has done
good service in that capacity, besides being an energetic worker in
the Sunday School. They have
made many friends in the district,
hnving always been prominent in
the social enjoyments of the young
people. They and their parents
are followed by the good wishes
of all for their happiness and
prosperity in their new sphere of
life to which they are going.
Mr. S. Sproul paid a short visit
to the ranch of D. Gellatly across
the lake last week-end.
Mr. Charlton has been assisting
Mr. Gay during the week in the
troublesome task of clearing up
things preparatory to leaving for
the coast.
The shooting season brings its
troubles well as its pleasures, and
when the guns begin to pop, nervous stay-at-homes begin to talk
about accidents. A painful mishap
occurred last weekend to a parly
of young Nimrods who had gone
out around Black Mountain. A
gun in the hands of Percy Dilworth
accidentally went off without instructions. The bullet, with that
perversity which stray bullets always seem to have, was not content
to bury itself in some friendly tree,
but went through John Fleming's
leg. He was hurried home and
had the wound dressed. Fortunately no very serious damage was
done.
The same party also had another
misfortune. One of their horses,
a fine heavy animal belonging to
Mr. Fleming, slipped over a steep
bank, and rolled down. It was
found to have sustained a broken
shoulder. An effort was made to
get it down home, but we understand that eventually it had to be
shot. Mi. Fleming thinks hunting
is a rather expensive form of
amusement.
Rutland has its duck-shooting
too, and some good bags have
been made on the small lakes in
the district.
Mr. W. Craig had the misfortune
to get one of his fingers badly
crushed last Friday whilst working
at the creek where the Rutland
Ditch company are putting a pipe-
under the bed of the stream. It
was necessary to amputate the injured member.
A WINNING  TRICK.
He Lost All His Bets and Made Money
by Doing So.
The captain of one rather old and
slow steamer of years ago, finding that
he would have to be a long time ln
China before he received a full cargo
of tea and would bave probably to return iu ballast, began, to- every one's
astonishment, to say that, owing to
the repairs that had been done to bis
engines, he hoped to make a racing
passage back to England. Then, still
more to the astonishment of the captains of the fast steamers and the
world at large, he commenced to back
himself to make the fastest passage
home.
In sucb very considerable sums of
money did he wager that people be-
gan to think there was something In
It, nnd the merchants sent their tea
almost entirely to his ship, arguing
tbat as the captain stood to lose £250
tbe repairs to his steamer's engines
bad probably pat him in a position to
bet almost on a certainty.
Of coarse the steamer, whose greatest speed was eight knots an hour, arrived in' England weeks after the others, and the captain lost £250, but Instead of having to lie ln China waiting bis chance of cargo coming in
from the Ulterior, a probable delay of
weeks, he had cleared in a few days
after bis bets became known to tbe
public witb a fail ship, thos ^recouping
to bis owners, who, of course, paid bia
betting losses, a considerable number
of thousands of pounds profit—Blackwood's Magazine.

The landlord of the Inn where be
was hi the habit of dining discovered
on a table a piece of paper on which
were written some unintelligible
phrases and below in a plain, bold
band, "Here 1 will kill the king."
Tbe landlord consulted with tbe chief
of police. Clearly this-clew to a conspiracy ought to be followed.up. The
person who had left the paper had already been remarked for his absent
air and gleaming eye. -That man waa
Pechantre.
The chief of police-instructed the
landlord to send for him the next time
the conspirator came to-dinner.
When Pechantre was-«hown the evidence of his guilt he forgot the awful
charge against him and' exclaimed:
"Well, 1 am glad to see-that paper.
1 have looked everywhere • for it it
is part of a tragedy 1 am'writing, it
is the climax of my f best -.scene, where
Nero is to be killed.. It comes in here.

whose pulse beats can be plainly seen,
aud yet I suppose there are but few
outside of the profession wbo realise
tbe fact. In most persons the beat of
tbe pulse cannot be perceived, but the
mere fact that the beating is perceptible does not mean that tbe pulse is
other than normal. I have come across
a uumber of cases where the throbbing
of tbe wrist could be plainly seen, and
yet tbe persons rarely gave- evidence
of abnormality in temperature. They
were rarely feverish and were in good
physical condition generally. Pulses
of this kind, from this view, which is
based upon actual observations of
cases, do not Indicate anything more
than an abnormal physical condition
in tbe formation of the wrist veins.
"I have met with one case which was
possibly a little extraordinary ln that
it was plainer and much more distinct
than any l had ever seen before. It
could almost be heard. The artery
would rise to a point almost as large
as tbe ball of the little finger of a
child and would change from the
white of the skin to a blood purple
witb each beat,of the pulse. 1 found It
easy to count the pulse beats without
touching tbe patient's wrist I could
see plainly enough to keep the record,,
and in order not to err in my calculation 1 tested it ln several ways and
found it was correct and that there-
was no mistake in my counting witb
tbe naked eye."
THE ARTIST WON.
His Nerve and His Drawing Combined
Made the Editor Meek.
Tbe editor bad given tbe artist an
order to illustrate the story and had
drawn a rough diagram of the kind of
sketch ho wanted. It must show a
deer vaulting in a high leap over a
clump of bushes. The artist read the
manuscript made tbe picture and sent
it in. It was well done. The deer was
a magnificent fellow, with a pair of
antlers that the most ambitious buck
might well be proud of. The editor
took one look at the drawing and then
in disgust returned it to the artist,
witb a letter stating that the figure
must be redrawn because "the story
plainly states that the buck was a
yearling, consequently he would bave
bad only spike horns and not the kind
of antlers you have depicted."
The artist was not however, dismayed. He stood pat for antlers. With
courage born of immovable conviction
he returned tbe drawing unaltered to
the editor and wired him: "Composition demands antlers. Change manuscript to 'three-year-old buck.'"
The editor was struck so dumb by
this manifestation of nerve that be
actually took time to study the drawing. He let his Imagination picture
the spike buck instead of the majestic
an tiered beauty and meekly decided
that the artist knew a thing or two,
so tbe editorial bine pencil was
brqugbt into-requisition, tbe buck gained two years ln a less number of minutes, and the periodical lost nothing
by the change.—New York Press.

Why Turkish Women Oo Vailed.
Turkish women do not wear iveUa
because of their religion, as many sap-
pose. It is merely the survival of an
old custom. When the Turks still
lived in Tartary, before tbe time of
Mohammed, it was the habit of tbe
won to steal such women for wives as
attracted tbem. This led to eo mocb
fighting that about the eecood century
after Christ the Turks came together
and decided tbat henceforth the women should go veiled and should not
meet men, but dwell in harems, aa
boou as tbey arrived at womanhood,
whlcb was at about eleven years of
age.—Mrs. Kenneth Brown In Metropolitan Magazine.

A further instalment of Mr. J. C.
Metcalfe's fruit reports is tp hand
as follows:—
Calgary, Aug. 22.—Jobbers here
report quotations higher for prunes
and other varieties of fruits. Do
not look for very low prices on
fruit this season now. Plunket &
Savage, jobbers here, stated prices
were firmer for all truits. At present
time have three carloads rolling
from J. S. Perry, North Yakima, on
consignment, but stated they would
maintain prices on the above cars
as it is good stock and the market
is bare. They further stated. they
did not anticipate any lower prices
this season on any variety of fruit
as was indicated by the early June
reports of heavy crops from American and other points. The following is a quotation from Hilton,
Oregon, to Plunket and Savage,
jobbers here, f.o.b. point of shipment :
Pears  per crate, $1.25
Prunes and plums    " .70
Apples per case,     .90 '

es than earlier, and give the following- as prices paid f.o.b. point of

There have been some complaints
by jobbers and dealers to the express  company    here   respecting
weight of fruit packages coming
from B. C, as being too high and
asking for a reduction of the billing
weights.   With the  express agent
here  we  weighed   the   following
varieties of fruits in packages:
N Peaches,  16J to   17| pounds
Plums, four basket case, 22 1-3
to 24J pounds.

Edmonton, Aug. 24th. ' Agent
Dominion. Express Co. here and
dealers report blackberries arriving
in good condition, but supply far
short of demand. B. C. large fruits
are in evidence, everywhere on
these markets now.
The following is a quotation
shown me by two jobbing houses
here from J. S. Perry, North Yakima,
this date, f.o.b. point of shipment:
Peaches, per case $ .40
Prunes, peach box 50
At the same time they stated this
was a much lower quotation than
received from any other American.
points at this date and admitted
prices quoted were generally higher
fq>r the different varieties of fruit.
Jobbers here complain of the
difficulty of obtaining fruit from the
(growers and shippers in B. C.
They state our growers don't appear to know what varieties and
quantities they have, or date of
being ready for shipment and fail
to ship on dates when ordered.
Battleford, Aug. 26. Express
Agent Canadian Northern here reports no blackberries this season to
date, and strawberries and rasps,
in very limited quantities; were
shipped in, by jobbing, houses,
Saskatoon and Edmonton. But he
reported large quantities of other
fruits came in,by local frieght to
this point froin Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Edmonton. Two cars of
mixed fruits have arrived already
from Saskatoon and Edmonton and
notice of another car from B. C. arriving next week.
_   The following are the  Canadian
Northern .express rates on fruit to

Carloads of mixed fruit and
vegetables, minimum 24,000, can
be shipped, each commodity taking
its own rate, but such mixed carloads must contain not less than
10;000 lbs. of fruit, apples or pears.
To .summarize, the wholesale
fruit men generally report a greater scarcity of fruit than was anticipated in the earlier part of the
season from reports received at
various times from American shipping points.; In past seasons jobbers in these provinces here drew
heavily on Washington, Idaho, arid
Oregon for their fruit supply, and
these "states responded freely to*
their demands. The wholesalers
claimed not to be able to obtain
any appreciable quantity from B.C.:
This year, however, southern Minnesota, suthern Dakota, Iowa, and
thenorth-we8tern part of Wisconsin
have no fruit, and they are drawing
on the Pacific coast states for their
supplies, and are relieving our
markets here in a measure of their
fruits.     Last  season at this time
IqW{i_um :S____SG!___f:  !!__£_
hipping into Winnipeg
2,000 barrels of apples per week ;
now Iowa is buying her apples.
Reports from Ontario grow worse
as the season advances. Nova
Scotia reports the worst crop in
years. With thesp facts in view I
would advise our growers and
shippers .to hold firm.to present
prices quoted, but to push sales
energetically, 'and move fruit
promptly as ordered. Pack and
grade the best, using standard
packages.of the best quality to be
obtained. Pick fruit greener. Our
growers and shippe'rs are generally
allowing fruit to get over-ripebefore
picking for shipping long distances.
Jobbers want it green to hold up
and distribute out to rural points.

j
Long before the curtain goes down
at the end of a new production the
manager has decided, nine times in
ten, whether he has a success or not.
But he does not mean to be caugbt
napping in either event. If he believes
the play is a "frost" or even a seml-
succees the bouse for the next few
nights must bear every outward evidence of prosperity.
ln other words, he must "buck tbe
line", of adverse criticism by "papering
the bouse." For a week at least -be
must make a "front" in the orchestra
chairs, no matter if there is. desolation
in tbe bos office. Let him make tbe
public believe the new piece has attracted a large number of patrons for
six or eight performances and there is
a chance of enough business to prop
up a forced run of a few weeks, which
may help things on the road. This
means that "paper" or free tickets
must be judiciously distributed.
Every manager of a theater has a
large circle of friends. This may be
due partly to his possession of a genial
personality, but undoubtedly the business be is in has in' itself an attraction
for many. A majority of these people
will accept passes when they are offered; some are not above asking for
them, while still others—but these are
rare— will buy tickets when compli-
mentaries are not tendered.
When the manager bas a play that is
ln danger of going to pieces for lack
of patronage he sends tickets to all
these friends of his and whenever possible obtains a promise tbat they will
be used by the persons to whom be
gives them. It is not difficult to extract such a pledge. Being on terms
of more or less intimacy with the manager, tbe favored ones know he will
be likely to see them in the theater or
if they are not there that he will take
note of those who do not use the tickets. He keeps a record of the seat
numbers opposite tbe names of those
who should occupy those particular
chairs and can tell at once when bis
hospitality bas been abused.
Another class which sees many plays
In New York city gratis Is to be found
in department stores. Nearly every
director of a theatrical company—as
distinct from a theater manager—is on
cordial terms with the heads of departments in large retail mercantile
establishments. Each of these heads
will accept from six to a dozen pairs
Of tickets occasionally to distribute
among his subordinates.
Often it is possible to get rid of 200
tickets or more in a day in this way,
and when this is repeated in four or
five stores the manager is sure of the
'attendance of an appreciable number
of well dressed young women iu the
newest millinery and style of coiffure,
«ach with a respectably attired cavalier and all on their best behavior.
These people may not be ultra fashionable, but they will not disgrace their
environment
Unless the theatrical man is acquainted wltb the department heads.
however, it is not an easy matter to
give away tickets in such an establishment. Tbe average clerk in a
large store, especially of tbe feminine
gender, is suspicious. She does not
understand such open handed generosity, and there must be a lot of explanation to convince ber that ln offering
something for nothing the manager
has not some sinister design. As for
the male clerks, if he gives them any
Idlrectly they are sure to tell every one
what a pull they have with the man-
; jtger and pester him for tickets ever
