Hon. Price Ellison's
Change of Portfolio
s ——
Will Be Minister of  Finance
and Agriculture
The Hon. Price Ellison, who has
been for the past year head of the
department of lands, is, according
to an announcement made by the
Premier last week, to  be  minister
of finance and agriculture, a portfolio held by the attorney-general,
Hon. W. J. Bowser, since the death
of CaDt. Tatlow.   This arrangement
will allow Mr.  Bowser  to  devote
the  whole  of  his attention to the
SSfSince  his appointment   to   the
department of lands the Hon. Price
Ellison  had some  very important
questions to handle,'and it is gener-
'   ally admitted. that,  aided  by  his
'  wide  experience  in such matters,
he has fulfilled the  duties  of the
office  with  credit  to himself and
"benefit to the province. As minister
v of agriculture, no doubt he will be
equally at home.    He is one of the
most successful farmers and ranchers  in  the  west,  and   knows the
needs of the farmers and agricultural  interests  as few  other men
know them.
His successor in the department
of lands will be Wm. R. Ross, KG,
M.L. A., of Fernie.

stock has arrived, and it is the intention of the contractors to hurry
the work as much as possible before the snow flies. * A. Schulli left

The headquarters of the contractors will be at Midway for the present and the laying of the steel on

Once again Kelowna has demonstrated the justice of her claim to
be regarded as the-premier fruit
city of the province by carrying off
the highest award at the Provincial
Fair held Jast week at New Westminster.
The show was opened last Tuesday week by" Lieutenant-Governor
Patterson in the presence of a large
and distinguished gathering. Although the heavy rain which the
coast cities have-been experiencing
during the past week or so interfered somewhat with the comfort
of those attending the show, yet it
is generally admitted that in the
number of entries and in the
general interest taken in the Fair,
this year has been a record one.
An4 this was especially true of the
fruit section. The competition in
box exhibits for instance was much
larger than last year, and in other
classes the same increase was
noticeable. It was undoubtedly
by a long way the finest collection'
of fruit ever placed on the tables,
or for the matter of that ever before
seen in the province.
Kelowna's exhibit, prepared
under the auspices of the Agricultural and Trades Association, by
Mr. A. E. Boyer and his associates
as usual scored heavily,,: adding
still another triumph to the remarkable run of brilliant successes
which our exhibits have met with
on previous occasions.  '
The blue ribbon of the fair so
far as the fruit 'section was concerned, was the first prize gold
medal in the District Fruit Exhibit,
and it.' is no small feather in
Kelowna's cap, that this coveted
prize has been carried off. The
trophy, which is of solid Fraser
River gold, is presented by the
Royal Agricultural and Industrial
Society of B. C. It has engraved
around the edge: " Won by Kelowna, B. G, 1st Prize District Fruit
Exhibit, Provincial Exhibition, New
Westminster, B. G, 1910—World
In the five box exhibits of apples
there were twelve classes in all, and
the result shows shows that in the
face of the keenest competition
prizes have been won in eleven of
them, in the case of Jonathans and
Kings the first, second and third
prizes for each variety.
In the two box pear classes the
result is scarcely less remarkable.
Seven classes were entered and
prizes were scored in five of them.
On his return last Monday from
New Westminster, Mr. Boyer was
accorded an enthusiastic welcome.
The greatest credit is due for the
energetic way in which he and his
assistants have engineered the collection and arrangement of the
fruit, and it is only fitting that their
efforts should be crowned with so
much success.
Only those who have ever taken
part in the getting up of an exhibit
of this kind know the vast amount
of work involved in gathering and
selecting the choicest specimens to
meet the keen competition. Mr.
Boyer, with Mr. A. R. Muirhead
and Mr. Dixon, who were assisting
him.have been busy many weeks
past visiting the orchards and getting the fruit together. Much depends on the packing of the fruit
for exhibition, and Mr. Jack Sewell
certainly had-a heavy task.
A great disappointment 'was in
store for Mr. Boyer on reaching the.
coast. A large portion of the exhibit had been sent on some time
ahead and placed in cold storage
in Vancouver. Owing to some
bungling on the part of the storage
company the temperature had
been allowed to fall too low, and

the fruit was frozen and utterly
ruined. A large number of prizes,
Mr. Boyer estimates, were missed
owing to this unfortunate loss.
Mr. Boyer wishes to thank the
farmers and all who helped in the
work. Much difficulty has been
encountered this year through farmers selling the whole of their
crop in advance. It would be advisable another year for the credit
of the district for farmers to reserve
sufficient for exhibition purposes
when disposing of their crop.
Most of the fruit was disposed
of after the show at good prices,
over 50 boxes being purchased by
W. A. Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture, for shipment to the
Old Country to form part of the
government's exhibit there this

ShftW^iitJife end of this month. Mr.
B. McDonald, of ( the Fairmers'
Exchange, is taking charge of this
part of the exhibit, and to Mr.
Gibb has been entrusted- the
monumental task of selecting and
packing the 600 boxes which
constitutes a carload. '
Each box is to contain precisely
the same number of apples—120—
packed in exactly the same way,
thus securing absolute uniformity.
The extra labor involved in such a
task can only be appreciated by
those engaged in fruit packing.
The prize at stake-is $500 for the
best car of Jonathans, and entry is
also made for the sweepstakes
prize of $1000 for the best carload
in the show.

Mrs. F. W. Roberts, formerly of
Parrboro, Nova Scotia. The bridesmaid was Miss Elsie Roberts, sister
of the bride, with Mr. R. T. Buxton
as best man. Mr. and Mrs. Oxley
returned to Kelowna Tuesday last.
They will take up their residence
on Beach avenue. Since coming
from Nova Scotia about a year ago
to commence business in Kelowna
Mr. Oxley has made a host of
fyends, and the Record joins in
extending heartiest congratulations
and best wishes to the young

Fire broke out in the small hours
o£ Tuesday morning in Mr, Fleming's honse in Rowcliffe avenue,
near the new English church. The
trouble started near the cook-stove,
and considerable damage was done
to the wopdwork and plaster of
the kitchen and dining room before
the blaze was put out. The brigade
were summoned, but the fire was
extinguished before their arrival.
Ten thousand boxes of apples—
a mountain of choicest fruit—is at
the present moment to be seen
stacked ready for shipment in the
big building of the Farmers'
Exchange. Ten thousand bbxes
means over sixteen carloads—and
faster than the packers can handle
them or the C. P.. R. haul away the
loaded cars, the farmers in'the district are hauling in their load after
load of apples — red cheeked
beauties with scarcely a blemish to
a boxful. Even the most sanguine
of enthusiastic admirers of Kelowna's wonderful orchard country
never dreamed of the mighty
avalanche of fruit which 13 descending upon the packing houses today.
If you would appreciate Kelowna's claim to the .title of
" Orchard City," then climb to the
top of that huge accumulation of
the orchard's ripe product, six boxes
high, and look down on the sea of
fruit, stretching from one end of
the building to the other. Then
descend to the basement and see
the same long vistas of boxes there.
When the Farmers' Exchange
put up their big cement building
just over a year^ago, there were
those who said it was too big for
its purpose, and that it would be
years before it, would, be all in use.
To look^t the Ulterior of it how
one wonders how it is possible to
do any Work at all, so crowded is
it with boxes.
A staff of ten or twelve packers
are working almost day and night
to keep pace with-the work, and at
the present time an average of
about three cars a day, including
apple and vegetable shipments, are
being dispatched from the Farmers'
Exchange alone. Up to the present
date, from 105 to 110 car loads of
fruit and vegetables have been
shipped, in addition to unusually
heavy express shipments, which
would, at a rough estimate, have
filled some ten or twelve ' more
And this is only one packing
house. Messrs. Stirling & Pitcairn
are confining their attention this
seasonsentirely to fruit shipments,
and from eight to ten cars are leaving their sheds every week.      ,
Including the shipments of the
Vernon Fruit Company and Messrs.
Rowcliffe Bros., the orchard produce at present leaving Kelowna
reaches the grand total of over
thirty car loads weekly.
The C. P. R. barge which carries
the cars to and from Okanagan
Landing is being taxed to its uttermost, and the greatest difficulty is
experienced in getting cars enough
for the heavy traffic.
Packers are at a premium and
boxes cannot be produced fast
enough to supply the demand.
This week the Farmers' Exchange
has been obliged to call a halt, and
for three days its doors have been
closed to the farmers, the manager,
Mr. B. McDpnald, absolutely refusing to. receive any more fruit"
until some of the accumulation has
been cleared off.
Wh^n it is remembered that only
a fraction of the orchard area ia
the Kelowna district is as yet actually in bearing, it is difficult'to
realize the vast dimensions which
this fruit traffic will assume in - the
next few years.
The moving picture show at the
Arcade (Hall is continuing to draw
good houses. The excellence of the
films being shown, changed every*
other night, is evidently being appreciated.  ,

for sale' until he returned and
inspected again. The same firm
stated to me they had bought
heavily of B. C. winter apples, and
were offering the same to the trade
and quoting at $ 1.80 per box in
car lots f. o. b. yoint of purchaser
anywhere here in all provinces.
The McPherson Fruit Co. here
stated they had bought 75 car lots
of winter applee at different
American points paying 75 c. to
90c. per box f. o. b. point of shipment for assorted varieties, all to
be No. I, with the exception of the
Jonathan apple for which they
are paying $1.10 per box.
To summarize,   plums,   prunes
and peaches are  over..    Jobbers
and retailers are now looking for
quotations on   winter apples" and
our shippers should  get in touch
by quoting prices as soon as possible, or having their travellers call
upon   them    personally.     Apple
prices are firm and demand good,
so there is no necessity for sacrificing  or ^putting of prices.   'At the
Isame time it will be •necessary to
watch  American   shipments   and
quotations    from   the   American

The Judicious Distribution of "Com-

Saves the Appearance of a "Frost."

Buccess the house for the next few

ln other words, he uiiisi "buck tbe

must make a "from" iu ihe orchestra
chairs, no mutter it there i> desolutlou'
In tbe box oliice. Let Iii in make the
public believe ihe ueu piece has attracted a large utimUer ot patrons for
Biz or eight perfonuHiues and there is
a chai/ce ot enough business to prop
up a forced run of a lew weeks, which
nay help things "on the road. This
means that "paper" or free tickets
must be judiciously distributed.
Every manager of u theater,has a
large circle of friends This may .be
due partly to bis possession of a genial'
personality, but undoubtedly tbe business he is in has iu itself an attraction
for many. A majority of these people
will accept passes wben they are offered; some are uot above asking for
them, while still others—but these ure
rare—will buy tickets when compli-
mentaries are not tendered.
When the manager bas a play tbat is
in danger of going to pieces for lack
of patronage be sends tickets to all
these friends of his nnd whenever possible obtains a promise tbat tbey will
be used by tbe persons to whom be
gives then. It is not difficult to extract anch a pledge. Being on terms
of more or less intimacy with the manager, the favored ones know he will
be likely to see them in tbe theater or
if they are not there tbat he will take
note of those wbo do not use the tickets. - He keeps a record of the seat
numbers opposite the names of those
who- should occupy those particular
chairs and can tell at once wben bis
hospitality has been abused.
Another class which sees many plays
in New York city gratis is to bo found
ln department stores. Nearly every
director of a theatrical company—as
distinct from a theater manager—is on
cordial terms witb tbe beads of departments in large retail mercantile
establishments. Each of these beads
will accept from .six to a dozen pairs
of tickets occasionally to distribute
among his subordinates.
Often It Is possible tor get rid of 200
tickets or more in a day in this way,
and when this is repeated In four or
fire stores tbe manager is sure of the
Irttendance,of au appreciable number,
of well dressed young women ln the
newest millinery and style of coiffure,
each wltb a respectably attired cavalier and all on tbelr best behavior.
These people may uot be ultra fashionable, but they will not disgrace their
Unless the theatrical man Is acquainted with the department heads,
bowever, it Is not an easy matter to
five away tickets In such' an establishment. - The average clerk ln a
large store, especially of tbe feminine
gender, is suspicious. She does not
understand sucb open banded generosity, and there must be a lot of explanation to convince ber tbat ln offering
something for nothing tbe manager
tuts not some sinister design. As for
the* male clerks. If he gives them any
direct!" the° are sure to tell every one
what a pull they bave with tbe manager and pester him for tickets ever
afterward, particularly wben he has a
success, witb "tbe free list absolutely
It Is far less of an undertaking to
bay a hundred dollars' worth of low
priced goods than to make a present
of two tickets apiece to a dozen persons behind the counter. The telephone girls, stenographers and manicurists look osknnce at free tickets
from a stranger, although wben their
confidence is won they will generally
accept them with due gratitude.—

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir:
In Manitoba the fanner on a
party telephone line pays $20 per
annum. In Saskatchewan the
farmers build their own lines, the
government supplying the poles
free. The farmers buy their own
instruments, and the government
makes a small charge for connection
with the central offices.
In Alberta the charge is stated to
be $15 per annum to farmers on a
party line. No charge is made in
Manitoba or Alberta for the installation of telephones.
A farmer in the Kelowna district
on a party line pays $36 per year
for the use of a 'ph°ne, and for the
privilege of getting one at that
figure he is obliged to pay an ad
ditional sum of $10 at the date of
It is to be hoped that visitors to
this district who come with the intention of buying a piece of land
will not be under the impression
that the above rate is a fair criterion
of the cost here of every other
utility and commodity, if so, they
will be very apt to leave without
putting the real estate dealer to
much trouble.
Can vou, Mr. Editor, or can any
one else explain to us why the
farmer here has,to pay such a high
rate ? Is it because he is so much
more prosperous than are the
wheat growers of the three prairie
provinces that he can afford to pay
nearly double what they do ? 1
doubt it very much.

in Old Country
Department of Agriculture Is
Sending Eight Hundred

Eight hundred cases pf B.C. fruit
are being dispatched this" week by
the Department of, Agriculture for
the annual display at the various
centres in Great Britain. A large
proportion of this consignment is
taken from the Okanagan, some of
Kelowna's prize fruit from the New
Westminster show being included.
Upon arrival in Great Britain the
fruit will be placed in cold storage
and taken .out as reguired for exhibition purposes. The fruit displayed at each exhibition will be
sold immediately afterward, a fresh
lot being taken down from cold
storage for each occasion. By this
method, the display will be kept
always fresh.
The provincial exhibitions
throughout Great Britain will be
the first to receive attention. These
will take up the time until December 1st, when the Royal Horticul-
I tural Colonial Fruit Show will open.
Here the British Columbia fruit will
come into competition with that of
all the colonies of the Empire. It
was agent-general Turner who first
persuaded the authorities of the
Royal Horticultural Society to have
th^. displays of Colonial fruit which
have proved such a very great
attraction at their shows. For this
reason theduplay from British
Columbia is always made especially
welcome and given full Opportunity
for being" arranged to the best advantage, The show is usually
opened by some prominent person,
the Duke and Duchess of Argyle
officiating last year. __ 'A
When this exhibition is closed,
arrangements will be made with
one of the large stores in London,
wherebvthe British Columbia fruits
may be shown in: the window to
attract the Christmas trade.
The exhibit in England will be
looked atfter by E. Bullock-Webster.
The packing of the fruit is being
attended to by J. Brandreth.^ The
cars in which it will be taken to
Quebec have been furnished by
the Canadian Pacific Railway without charge. The consignments
this year are of better quality than
have ever before been sent tb
England. This is partly because
the season is more forward than
usual and partly because of the
increased acreage from which to
select..-: ''■■      .      ■•; ._.
A number of'medals were, won
by the British Columbia fruit exhibit
in Great Britain last year. These
comprise the gold medal, four silver
gilt medals and three silver jnedals
from the Royal Horticultural Society; silver-gilt medal from Crystal
Palace; gold medal from Southampton ; silver-gilt medal from
Aberdeen, and gold medals from
Bath, Harwick and Blackburn. The
gold medal of the Royal Horticultural Society has been awarded to
British Columbia for five years in
succession and Mr. Bullbck-Webs
ter expresses his condidence that
this year will make the sixth.
Irrigation Will Open Up
In the United States, most of the
irrigation of arid lands'is  by private owners, but  government  aid
of irrigation in the Western Hemisphere began with the passage by
the United States Congress   of  the
Reclamation Act of June 1 7, 1902.
Under this law, the  United  States
constructs   the    necessary    works
with money received from the sale
of public lands.   It is  reimbursed
by the sale of rights to  the water,
the users paying for their rights in
ten annual payments* without interest ; and the report of the Secretary of the Interior estimated  the
total receipts to June 30,  1909, at
$58,582,140, with the  net  expenditures   of   $43,737,919;    Private
irrigation was estimated at 13,000,-
000 acres while the  government
had actually irrigated 424,549 acres.  In Northwestern Canada the
C. P. R. is developing a large  irrigation project,  By a law passed in
1908,  Mexico  has    established a
bank for aiding irrigation schemes.
In Argentina the irrigated area in
1908   was    1,800,000  acies, and
Brazil and Chili have important irrigation works. India has the largest
irrigated area of any country—18,-
500,000 acres being supplied with
water by the government and  25,
500,000 by private works.  Turkis-
tan has about 5,000,000 acres under irrigation, largely  by   ancient
canals; and the recent works in Egypt supply over'400,000 acres.

. It is related of Rev. Mark Guy Pearse,
that one bitter winter night he had taken
a cab from a London suburb, and on reaching home, bade the driver come in and get
something warm and comforiable, but non-
intoxicating. He noticed that "cabby" had
no overcoat, and inquired how it was that
he was so. insufficently clad. The man explained his poverty, and Mr. Pearse said
"Well now, I've got a coat upstairs that
would suit you, but before I give it to yon
I'm bound to tell you that there's something
peculiar about that coat, and ilia right that
I should explain it to you before you put.

"What's that, sir?" said the man, considerably linystjfiod, and not knowing whether he might find it wise to decline the
mysterious garment.
Said Mr." Pearse solemnly, "That coat
never had a glass of beer or spirits inside
of it from the day it was made until now.
I want you to promise me that aa long as
you wear that coat you will let. the drink
alone."   .
"All right air/' said the cabby, holding
out his hand. "All right sir; I won't upset
the coat by putting any-drink inside of it.
Many months fatter Mr. Pearse met the
man again, and learned that he had; kept
his promise.—C. E. World.

A mouse fell into a beer vat.'and a cat

The mouse said to the cat:
"Help me out of my difficulty."
"If I do I shall eat you." said the cat.
"Veiy well" replied the mouse, "I would

It waa a sensible cat, and _aaid: "I shall

"Very well, I give you the promise."
So the cat fished the mouse out, and
trusting to the rromise she dropped it for

"But didn't you promise me I might eat

Butter Butter Butter
On account of the high price of feed and the enormous
demand for Canadian Butter, there is  going to  be  a
scarcity of Creamery Butter this winter. Doubtless many
merchants will be short in consequence.
We have been  fortunate  to  make a contract with a
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
-  3 i a get every week by express.    Per lb. 50c.

The average term of an elephant's
life, although there is no precise information on the' point, is seventy or
eighty years. The elephant is not in
full vigor and strength till thirty-five.
The most ready way of forming an
approximate idea of the age is by tho
amount of turnover of the upper edgo
of the ear. In young animals, some*
times up to the age of eight or nine,
years, the edge is quite straight It,
however, then begins to turn over, and*
by the time the animal is thirty tho

and between this age and sixty this

The majority of elephants, however,

The Komaif Senate.
The* Soman senate had fbr many
centuries but 800 members, selected
from tbe patricians, or aristocrats.
The office of senator was for lite.
The body was practically supreme in
matters of legislation and administration. The majority of votes decided
a question, and the order in wblch the
voting took place was Invariably determined by rank, beginning with the
president and ending with the quae-
tors. The senators wore on tbelr tanks
a broad purple stripe—a badge of die*
tlnctlon, like a modern decoration—
and they had the exclusive right cf
precedence at theaters, tbe amphitheater and all other public gatherings.
