Meeting of City Council
Question of New Fire Hose   -   Will Not Proceed with New
Sidewalks - Water Users Kick About Bills -
The city council met last Monday
night,- the mayor, Aid. Leckie, Cox
and Jones being present.
The  minutes  of    last    meeting
having been read and adopted, the
following accounts were referred
to   the  finance  committee,  to be
paid if found correct:
A.   Hanmore,   work   on
".     waterworks.................. $    5 50
A. R. Davy teaming for
August ......;.....,........   101 70
Can. Fairbanks Co., supplies for repairing generator....,....;...7.. 7    59 10
Mr. H. H. Millie attended and
requested the council to grant him
permission  to  change  his. line of
- telephone poles from the south
side of Bernard avenue to the
north. It would make the street
look better, he said, and greatly
improve the service by getting rid
of the  unpleasant buzzing  noise,
.which was caused at night by the
close proximity of the city's electric
light wires and arc lamps. He
wanted to place the poles at the
same distance from the edge of
the sidewalk as they were at present from the other side of the
road. '  '■   7-
The mayor suggested that the
latter arrangement might at some
time interfere with an electric tram
line down the avenue.
A». motion was eventually passed
giving Mr.  Millie   permission7 to
change the.poles as he desired, the
■placing: of thie poles to ti£ Subject
- to the approval of the chairman of
theBOard-of Works.;
; Mr. Millie also mentioned that
he was intending running a new
line along- Richter street and out
past the city limits, and the placing
of the poles for this formed the
subject of a little discussion.
Aid. Leckie reported .that the
hydrants for the water system had
, not yet arrived. There had been
some little delay over the thread
for the hose couplings and he had
had to forward a hose coupling to
the firm as pattern.
The mayor mentioned that the
fire brigade were asking for, new
hose. The matter had been
brought up before, but nothing
had been done. Hose was a very
expensive item, and as no provision
had been fnade in the estimates
for a new supply, if they bought
now they would be that much
behind at the end of the year.
Aid. Jones said he had discussed
the matter with, the brigade at the.
beginning of the year, and they
had considered that they had
sufficient. If, however, some of the
hose was actually unfit for use, it
was a question of fire protection,
and they would have to see that
something was done. .
The mayor said that some of the
hose was very old, and the rubber
in it was bound to deteriorate,
even if the hose was not in use. In
reply to a question from Aid. Cox,'
he said that 500 feet would probably cost about a dollar a fddt.   v'
It was eventually left fbr the
committee to look into the state of
the hose at the fire hall and report.
Mayor, Sutherland mentioned
that some of the merchants and the
Clerks' Association were desirous
of having a public holiday proclaimed on Wednesday afternoon
instead of the regular Thursday
holiday, in order to give them an
Opportunity of attending the fair.
Aid. Leckie objected on the
ground that it would be a nuisance
to people who were not going to
the fair. He said there would be
many people come in long distances from the country who had
not heard of the holiday. They
would have to go out again without
getting - the goods they came for.
So far' as he was concerned if his
staff wished to go to the fair they
could go, but he would remain and
keep open the store.
Aid. Jones thought that the
notice given was too short. There
was no means of letting people at
a distance ..know of the change.
The merchants would no doubt be
able to make arrangements to suit
The matter was then dropped.
The mayor said that at the last
meeting a motion had been passed
to proceed with certain sidewalks
under the LocaHmprovement Act.
On going further into the' matter,
however, they had found that
the amount of money represented
was too small to make it worth
while issuing debentures. There"
was a lot of legal business to be
gone through in issuing debentures,
and for so small a sum it would
not be worth: while to proceed.
They had therefore decided to let
the matter drop.
Aid. Leckie thought they might
let the motion stand as it was, and
simply defer taking action for the
present. He had suggested to the'
petitioners that they might put in
the sidewalk themselves, and, afterwards, when the city took up the
question again, put in a bill and
have the work transferred to the,
city.7;This Was one way of getting
over the difficulty.
:_ A letter was read from the city
assessor, pointing out that an error
of $1000 had been discovered in
the assessment, and recommending
that $23.50 be returned to Messrs.
Lequime Bros. & Co., in addition
to rebate on other taxes.
A: motion was accordingly put
through to that effect. 7
, With; something of a twinkle ipj
'his'eye, Mayor Sutherland observed that he had heard that the water
committee were the subject of some
little talk in -connection jvith,the
charges which had been made for
water. He wondered if Aid. Leckie
could . throw - any light' upon the
Aid. Leckie said he had heard
of some of the kicks which certain
people were making about the bills
for water which had just been sent
put. If they had any reasonable
complaint to make he was quite
willing to go into their account with
them, and see where the trouble
was. The fact was that there were
many people without meters who
were using large quantities of water
for irrigating arid expecting tb get
it for the minimum $1.20. In fixing
the charges for those without
meters, he had endeavoured to
arrive at a fair basis, and assess
them on the amount of lawn they
were irrigating and the time they
allowed the water to run;
A Jong discussion ensued on the
way in which people were using
the water.
Mayor Sutherland, had been
making some calculations. He said
that 40 cents worth of water at the
present rate would put one inch of
water on a lawn 50x40 feet; $1.20
worth would put one inch on a
lawn 50x120 feet. According to
some people 8 bills they must haye
put filter more than three feet
deep oJi their lawns. He could
net understand how they could
have done tha{: without an enormous amount of waste.
Aid. Leckie maintained that there
was anvenormous amonnt of waste.
People had been running their lawn
taps almost continuously. When
water was sprinkled on in the hot
sun it evaporated almost as soon as
it was put on, without doing any
good. One person had confessed
to him that he had started tip his
sprinkler as soon as he had got it
fixed and never stopped it day or
night for a whole month.
One person with a meter had in
August alone used a quarter of a
million gallons—enough to supply
one hundred families — or with
domestic supply alone, a town of
500 people.
The discussion was continued
until a late hour, when and adjournment was made until Monday next.
Sunday School Convention at Vernon
The Eastern British Columbia
Sunday School Association will
hold it's third annual convention
in the city of Vernon, beginning on
Tuesday afternoon Oct. 25th and
closing on Thursday night Oct.2 7th
A very large delegation is expected since each school has the privilege of sending as many \ as may
wish to go. The people of Vernon-
have, already taken steps to provide
for their welcome and entertainment of their visitors on that occasion. All delegates are urged to
purchase their tickets attached to
standard certificates, so that in the
event of one hundred being present free transportation home may
be granted.
Among the leading specialists
expected, to address the convention
may be mentioned. Mrs. Mary F.
Bryner of Chicago, International
Elementary Superintendent; Rev.
W. C. Merritt of Tacoma, International Secretary for the North Western States; and Rev..W.C. Sanford
of Kamloops, at one time General
Secretary of the Nova Scotia Sunday School Association. A great
Convention is assured.

The " Tag Day" collection on
behalf of the hospital was a distinct
novelty, and judging by the amount
collected-$280.80 - proved a successful innovation. To be without
a tag was to run the risk, of bombardment by a detachment of the
nineteen irre'sistable ladies who
charge of the boxes, and he'was a
bold bad man who walked abroad

red , cross fastened to his buttonhole.

Messrs. Lequime Bros, were
awarded the prize for the best

Kelowna has been a busy town
this week, and in point of attendance at least this year's Fall
Fair and Race Meet has probably
touched the high water mark. The
exhibition itself may be pronounced
a decided success. Though a little
neglected in some the classes, notably in the vegetable section, compensation has been made for this
by the increased attention paid to
other branches.
The fruit exhibition was particularly fine this year, and practically all of the more useful commei-
cial varieties were represented, the
quality and size being very good,
whilst the coloring was extra fine.
Packed boxes were not in such
large quantities as they should be
as representing so large a commercial shipping point as this, but
what was there was good, particularly the work of Mr. J. Gibb, who,
however, is to be considered as a
professional, and probably well on
to the top of his class at that.
There, was some good amateur
packing by Carsorso Bros., J. Conlin
and H.Hill.
Most of the fruit prizes were
secured by the T. W- Stirling
orchards, under the management
of Mr. Henry Birtch. For such a
comprehensive selection, and for
the high standard of their exhibits
throughout, too much praise cannot be givea. Most . prominent
orchardists make a success with
one or two particular varieties to
which they givev all their attention
and study, but almost all the more
useful varieties of apples, pears,
crabs, etc., were well represented
by this orchard, no less than thirty-
five prizes being secured.
The enlargement.of the building
by the addition of the new wing,
afforded a much better opportunity
for the display of apples and other
fruits than in previous years, and
one heard expressions of approval
on all sides of the magnificent
show of apples, which without
doubt eclipsed anything ever seen
in the district. This is as it should
be, and if the same interest had
been shown in the sections devoted
to vegetables and farm produce,
we should have had to chronicle
the greatest exhibition ever held in
the district
Another section which received
marked attention this year was the
ladies' fancy wark. Mrs. (Dr.)
Martin was a prominent exhibitor
in this line, her exhibits covering a
.wide range of work. There was a
noticeable increase, too, in the
poultry section. More anil more
fruit growers are beginning to
realise the importance of this
promising industry, and it is to be
hoped that the time is not far
distant when shipments of poultry
produce will be a marked feature
of Kelowna's activity.
An exhibit which emphasized
another branch of agriculture in
which Kelowna is some day destined to make a name for herself,
was that of the Kelowna Tpbacco
Co.,, who had an attractive booth
showing tobacco in various stages
of manufacture, and practical
demonstrations in which cigai
makers fashioned with deft fingers
the seductive weed frohi Kelowna
grown tobacco.
' Mr. Geo. James had a fine display of electrical appliances of all
kinds, a sample of the extensive
stock which they carry.
The side shows which had rented
space in the grounds were a somewhat doubtful addition to the attractions, though thev certainly
added to the gaiety of the scene.

News of the Valley.
M. V. Allen, divisional fire warden, made a trip to Mable Lake
district last week, and reports an
extraordinary circumstance there. It
seems certain that some miscreant
had made a deliberate and well
planned attempt to fire the extensive and valuable timber limits belonging to the Enderby Saw Mills
in that section.
At diffirent points in a circle of
some five miles several fires had
been started simultaneously, and at
places the man's tracks could be
discovered, showing that the same
person had made a circuit of the
limits in the accomplishment of his
nefarious work. Fortunately a heavy
rain put out the fires before they
attained any headway, otherwise
many thousands of dollars worth
of timber would undoubtedly have
been destroyed. Suspicion points
to an individual who is known to
harbor a grudge against the company, and it is hoped that sufficient
evidence.may be secured against
him to convict him for the dastardly crime.   Vemon news.
A shocking accident occurred last
week in the Salmon Arm district
resulting in the death of Mrs. S. F.
Woodland. Mr.and Mrs.Woodland
were out driving when the rig
struck a stump in the road. Mr.
Woodland was thrown clear of the
rig, but the unforrunate woman's
foot must have caught in the lines
or somethrng, and she was dragged
along for half a mile, trailing over
rocks and stumps. She was taken
home but never regained consciousness and died a day or two

Vernon's new Central School,
which has been erected at a cost
of $54,000 was opened last week.
The officials of the Vernon Agricultural Society are grumbling at
the scanty support accorded by the
farmers and fruit growers to the
annual exhibition. The News, in a
lengthy editorial, advocates a general district fair for the whole of
the Okanagan, to be held alternately at Kelowna, Vernon and Armstrong.
The  Vernon  Board of Trade is
making  an  attempt this year, to
overcome the difficulties experienced by those who, in former years,
have desired to forward  packages
of fruit to' friends in Great Britain.
Many have wished to send fruit as
Christmas gifts to their friends in
the Old Country, but the high express charges and the uncertainty
of the fruit arriving at its destination
in good condition have proved too
great  an  obstacle.     The Vernon
Board    has    made     arrangments
with the C. P. R. whereby a shipment of fruit will be sent forward
in November at car rates, in cold
storage, and will be distributed by
an agent at Liverpool to those to
whom it is addressed.    The charge
will  probably not exceed  eighty
cents a box, and it will be handled
in such a manner as to ensure safe
and speedy delivery in good condition.   Mr. H. P. Lee of Vernon,
has been  authorized by the Board
11 of Trade  to  take  charge  of this
[-[-shipment, and will be glad to furnish further information to those
desiring to avail themselves of this
opportunity.   Persons in any part
of the valley, we understand, are at
liberty  to  take advantage of this

a wealth of green foliage and the

The city was again startled last
Thursday evening by an alarm of
fire. Before the brigade arrived on
the scene, which they did in remarkably quick time after the alarm
was given, the building an old barn
behind the Lakeview Hotel, was
well alight, and flames were leaping high in the air. A few minutes
application of the powerful jets of
water from the hose however sufficed to extinguish it. The stable
itself was unoccupied and of little
value, but its dangerous proximity
to other buildings made the quick
work ofthe boys all the more commendable.

Frederic Clark, the well known
star, will appear this season in a
magnificent production of Hall
Caine's most wonderful work, The
Manxman. His engagement here
' is for one night only at the Opera
House, Monday' Sept. 26th.
The Manxman is one of those,
wonder stories of that master play
' builder, Hall Caine, and leads us
1 through the gamut of human emotions with life and love and romance bristling on every side, to_ a
fitting ending, Caine's most brilliant propensity is the singular power of blending the lives of the rich
and poor and teaching a powerful
lesson in a highly interesting way.
He works his Manxman up to a
magnificent climax with all the
skill of his wonderful imagination.
He gives his characters real flesh
and blood, hearts arid souls and
never for one instant allows a note
which jars with probability to creep
into his theme. Mr. Clark is under
the management of Mr. J. Cdsgrove
, and is supported by a carefully
selected company of players, his
scenic equipment is second to not-
< hing so far seen in this vicinity.

Tuesday's Races
The first day's racing opened
with the Boys' Pony race, always a
popular event. Fancy Me won
first a little ahead of Towser, with
Whitefoot third.
The one mile Harness race between Reflector, owned by Marce-
ieay, of Penticton, Harvey M, by
Buller, of Calgary, I. Chamberlain's
Darkie, and Copeland's R.A.C.,
attracted a good deal of interest.
In the first heat Darkie stepped
out well from the start, maintaining
a good lead most of the time, winning an easy first, with Harvey M
second, and R.A.C. third. Time,
Four entered for the quarter mile
dash, Alice and Actress, both from
McLeod, Alberta, Rosy June, a
Penticton horse, and Pyman's Polly
ridden by R. Lambly. Actress
first, Alice second, Rosy June third.
Time 25 seconds.
The second heat of the Harness
race had the same result as the
first, Darkie first, Harvey M second,
and R.A.C. third. A little better
time was made, 2:321.
The Five-eighths of a Mile dash
was won by Melair, of Nicola, with
Fullers' horse, Don E, second, and
Actress third.
Half-mile Pony race, Alice first,
Dr. Richards' Pinkie second, and
Pyman's Paddy third.
The Cowboy race was won by
Harry Dillon on a horse belonging
to Albers, with Carsorso second,
and J. Bowes' horse third.
Wednesday's Races
Wednesday's r3C;ng drew a record crowd, the grand stand being
just about filled. The entries were
of a somewhat higher order than
usual, and the racing generally was
keenly contested.
The first race called on was the
free-for-all Harness Race, with four
entries, two Vancouver horses,
Subscription and Johnny Mack,
with Eli Johnson's horse, Corsican,
and the Kelowna horse, Darkie,
belonging to I. Chamberlain. The
first heat was exciting, the sympathy of the crowd being naturally
with the home horse, Darkie, who
had done so well at Vernon the
previous week. J. Bowes, the
starter, got them away in nice order!
and the dispute at once settled
down between Darkie and Subscription for the lead. Darkie
broke badly, however, allowing
the Vancouver horse to drctw
ahead, with Johnny Mack a close
third and Corsican fourth. In tbe
second lap Johnny Mack collided
with the fence, turning the cart
over, but his driver pluckily held
on and completed the xace, being
allowed owing to faulty track.
Darkie and Subscription still struggled for first place, but Darkie
again broke badly, and dropped to
third, Subscription sailing home an
easy winner, with Corsican second.
Time, 2:30.
An interesting race was the Half
Mile Dash, drawing three outside
entries, including Actress and Alice
from McLeod, Katie Bell, from
Nicola, and E. G. Fuller's horse,
Don E, of Kelowna. The horses
were well trained, but the usual
amount of jockeying took place
before a good start could be made.
The patience of the crowd was
well tried, but eventually a capital
start was made, with the horses
well bunched up until the first turn
was made, when Actress, most
cleverly ridden by Alwyn Weddell,
drew well to the front. Alice
here got in some fine running, and
rapidly diminished the lead which
had been secured by Actress. It
was a hot, well-contested race
from start to finish, Alice and Actress straining every muscle to got
away from each other, and the
excitement ran high as they came
to the wire with Actress leading by
about a head. Alice second, Don
E third, and Katie Bell fourth.
Time, 52f seconds.
The second heat of the free   for
all made an exciting event.    Much
disatisfaction was expressed in the,
crowd over the start, Johnnie M;>ckj
being a full length   behind   at   the I
word go.    The horses all. worked!
exceedingly well, but Subscription
seemed to make   the   pace   again,
and took the lead throughout.   The
race was kaladaeoscopic, and w
hard to follow, change of position
taking place several times • during
the heat. Darky behaved much
better this time, but was evidently
getting tired, having had a hard
day Tuesday. Johnny Mack nnd
Subsscription made a good fight
for it, and Johnny M. although
starting so far behind, finished
only a head behind Subscription
the  winner,  with  Darkie   a   long
third.  Time 2.31
Mr. Buller, of Calgary, gave a
fine exhibition heat with a particularly good horse, no time or
name being given.
The second heat of the half-mile
dash was next called.and what with
the wickedness of the horses and
the cuteness of the jockeys, it was
trying work getting a start.
When the crowd had been worked
up to a considerable degree of nervous excitement owing to the long
delayed start, they were suddenly
electirfied by an alarm of fire, and.
smoke was seen rising in front of
the stand. Everybody at once
jumped to their feet, and a rush
started for the exit. Only the prompt
action of one or two in the neighborhood of the alarm prevented a
serious accident. The fire, which
was caused by a match thrown into a lady's dress, was instantly extinguished, and the crowd quieted,
when the interest again centred
in the endeavors of Mr. Bowes to
get his horses away. Tnere was
another howl at the starter, and
Jim began to look cross, but he
stayed with it, and eventually got
them away in extra fine order. It
was an exciting race too when it did
come off. Alice took a slight lead
at tha first turn, but Actress disputed every inch of the way, and a
most severe struggle for first place
was continued until the wire was
passed, Alice the winner, only leading by about half a head, with
Don E. again third.
The, third heat of the half mile
was not run, as Alice was found to
have gone lame. First money was
awarded to Actress, with Alice
second and Don E third.
The third heat of the free-for-all
was a complete reverse of the preceding ones. Subscription took a
slight lead at the start, but Johnnie
Mack shot clear ahead, and kept a
long and ever-widening lead to the
finish. The horses were strung out
round the course at the second
crossing of the wire, with Johnny
Mack first, Subscription a long
second, and Darkie third. Time,
The Polo Pony quarter mile race
aroused a great deal of interest, all
being local horses. Paddy and
Polly, owned by C. K. L. Pyman,
Pinkie, by Dr. Richards, and Fancy
Me, by G. K.  Smith.    Polly  took
Mr. Barlee, however, by a piece of
clever riding and judgment fairly
lifted Pinkie across the wire just at
the finish, winning by about half a
head, amid the well-deserved enthusiasm of the crowd.
A very poor start was made in
the fourth heat of the Harness race,
the horses being strung out a full
length at the word " go." Johnny
Mack took the lead from the start
and ltept it to the* finish, being a
long way ahead of Subscription.
Darkie again broke badly and lost
a lot of ground. The best-time in
the race was made in this heat,
viz., 2.26.
A special matched Polo Pony
race bcetween Blue Lass and Snip
was run, resulting in an easy win
for the former.
The tandem race had three en-"
tries, horses owned by J. Bowes
winning first, and Dr. Richard and
Albers second. Carsorso's horse
bolted from the track, putting him
out of the race.
The final heat of the Harness race
was between Johnny Mack and
Subscription, the former winning
first place.
Three horses entered lor the
half mile Consolation race, Esca-
lante, Katie Bell, and Fly, finishing
in the order named.

Opening of Fall Styles,
Sept. 30th, Oct. 1st.
The many friends of Mr. and
Mrs.Victor Dilworth will be pleased
to learn of the arrival of a daughter
to their home on Friday last.
A~daughter was born to the wife
of Mr. Geo. Longstafife on Monday
the 19th.
The harvest services at the Methodist church last Sunday and Monday were records from every point
of view. The sermons preached
by the Rev. J. W. Davidson, of
Kelowna, were greatly appreciated
for their forceful, thoughtful, and
and helpful nature. The church
choir very materially helped to
make the day's services pleasant to
the memories of the Methodists
and their sympathizers in Rutland
district. The church was nicely
decorated with fruit, vegetables,
and flowers, the high color of the
apples lending itself well to decorative purposes.
Then on Monday night the supper! Oh! the supper! The
memory of it will linger long in the
minds of those who were fortunate
enough to be present. The Ladies'
Aid certainly excelled themselves.
A large number of friends drove
over from Kelowna, one of the
party possessing an appetite which
would be worth money to him if
he conld sell it to- a dyspeptic!
And even he expressed himself as
satisfied. The offering • asked for
was $100, and the trustees are
thankful to be able to announce
that the sum needed to free the
church from indebtedness was
raised, and now they are ready
and willing to undertake further
liabilities when called upon for a
new church.
The progamme of the evening
was bright and entertaining. The
Rev. Mr. Vance took the chair, and
and short addresses were given by
the Revs. J. W. Davidson, A. W. K.
Herdman,- and D. J. Welsh. The
programme included chotuses by
the choir, auto-harp solo by Mr. A.
Wigglesworth, reading by Miss
Gladys Bird, duets by Alda Mc
Donald and Gladys Bird, Rev. Mr.
Vance and Mr. W. Schell, Mrs.

What is believed to be the first
cyclone ever, known in the interior
of B. C, visited Creston last week,
doing considerable damage. It tore
a barn to pieces, leaving heavy
timbers weighing four hundred
pounds on the roof of a building a
hundred and fifty yards away.
Last month's traffic to Penticton
was more than double that of
August, 1909.
The-exhibit of B.C. fruit and
products at present being made by
the Department of Agriculture at
Toronto, is supposed to be one of
the finest displays of fruit ever sent
from British Columbia. It is in
charge of Mr. Edward Bullock-
Webster, of Penticton, who is the
exhibition commissioner of the
province. The Okanagan is well
represented with fruit of all kinds,
and some excellent photographs
are  on   view,    including   several

The new sanitarium at Trapauille,

examiners have been instructed to
carry their Ailtettattun to every

Chiefly as a result of suggestions
offered at the convention held at
Victoria in January last, when the
British Columbia Agricultural Fairs
Association duly organized under
the auspices   of  the Department
of Agriculture and with an official
of that department as permanent
secretary,    the    appointment    of
provincial  government   assistance
to the several exhibition, asociations
throughout the province has this
season been on a standard system
providing in itself guarantee against
the possibility of favoritism or partiality in the allocation of grants.
The system also provides a stimulus
for local fair promoters in doing
their part wejl, the securing   of
larger   memberships   and   more
adequate prize lists meaning se-
quently a large, contribution  from
the provincial treasury.    For the
purposes of grants to fai r associations, the government included in
the estimates of last session a vote
of $50,000. Of this sum $37,304
was appropriated toward assisting
several  of the larger   and   more
provincial exhibitions  and toward
the costs  of buildings   for   their
various purposes, leaving a balance
of $12,697 for the encouragement
of  the   rural   fairs — those local
theatres of keen  and fascinating
competition which go so far toward
improving the   standard   of   production conditions in  any   rural
community.   In the distribution of
this amount to the smaller organized fair associations of the province,
consideration has been given to the
prize classification for the present
year's exhibitions,  and   also   the
membership rolls of the interested
societies,  the amount allocated to
each association being determined
upon a fair and equitable basis.
The different fairs in the Okanagan will benefit by the distribution
as follows:
Vernon (debt)  .$3,000
Okanagan     960
Kelowna     459
Armstrong      984
Salmon Arm...        307

Grant* to Farmer*' Institutes
The Department of Agriculture
is also engaged at present, it may
mentioned, in distributing arranged
assistance to the varipus farmers'
institutes throughout the province,
assistance in which the women's
.institutes (a comparatively new
departure) are properly sharers.. In
the estimates of last session a sum
of $12,000 was set aside for the
furtherance of the useful aims and
objects pertaining to the development of institute work in British
Columbia. At' present there are
in all some forty-five institutes
scattered throughout the province,
representing a total membership of
approximately 5,000; in compar-
son with this showing the institutes
at the close of 1909 were but 38 in
number, with a' total membership
of 3,806.
The following shows, the membership of neighbouring institutes
with the amount allocated by the
government on a per capita basis:

Calgary, Sept. 6. Dealers
report blackberries coming in
limited quantities and arriving a
little soft. Demand is also limited.
They seem to be unseasonable now
weather is cool, arid further, such
an abundance of other varieties of!
fruit upon the market. Black-'
berrie-. selling to retailers at $2.25
per case. I saw plums in the
Vernon Fruit Co.'s warehouse here..
Came in by express from the lower
mainland, were of good size and
well packed, but going with plurn
rot. Would advise shipping such
fruit into local markets or cannery,
or, if shipped out, to ship to nearby local points. After commission
and express charges are deducted
there is not much left to the shipper, they have to be picked over
and sold at a low price, and at the
present low figures realized for
that kind of plums, there cannot be
much return to shippers, and at the
same time are not satisfactory to
the trade and injuring the reputation of B. C. fruit as a whole.
In conversation with the selling
agent for White & Crum, of Lewis-
ton, Idaho, he stated that they
would handle six hundred car
loads of fruit this season. Would
make two car loads of that amount
in these provinces. He further
stated they were about sold out of
the smaller large fruits, viz: plums,
prunes, peaches and pears. Had
only about five car loads of peaches
to offer for sale now. White &
Crum control to a great extent the
output of Milton & Freewater,
Oregon, and also the Alpowai
Orchard Co.'s output of Wawawai,
Washington. Prunes are being
quoted from North Yakima 40c.
per case in peach boxes, these are
not packed and are short in weight
2 lbs., or more in comparison with
the 4 basket plum crate. 'The
packages cost less, no paper being
used, and no cost as to packing
and generally a poorer grade and
quality of prunes from what I have
seen than the fruit put up in plum
crates with baskets and paper.
Jobbers at this and other points
have spoken to me of the wrapping-of apples, would prefer to
have early and fall varieties that
are well colored not wrapped.
This would only apply to early and
fall varieties, and where the < distance was not too great to be shipped. The reason assigned was that
they showed up to better advantage
being much more attractive in appearance, and for that reason sold
more readily, but with green varie.
ties and winter apples would be
better for being wrapped for

Don't put off having your watch attended to if it ia not running properly.
Many good watches are practically
spoiled by being kept running without
cleaning. When your -watch ' suddenly begins tb'Iose, don't move the: regulator to make it go faster and .'think
you have remedied the cause. Some
watches , run for months with broken'
jewels and finally stop when the pivot
is worn off the staff, then it'costs much
more to repair it than if^it had been
attended to at first. When your watch
goes wrong bring it to me and I will
report on it. and make the cost of repair as low as possible.
