The manager of thc Gloria Dare company overlooked paying the Ledge for  advertising before leaving Greenwood.  We hope this disease is not chronic with  him.  It is said that a bank was cannoned in  Chesaw last week for ^oo, and a parson  in the Boundary for 45 cents. The holdups appear to have located the capitalist  class.  Alex Robinson was in the city Tuesday, lie has all his ties down at the C.  P. R. railway track ready to load. Lately  he has had difficulty iu getting cars,  probably owing to the strike.  The annual meeting of the Kettle River and South Okanugan Pioneers' association will be held iu the Central hotel.  Keremeos, this year on the iSth September.

Foyle Smith went up the West Fork this  week to do assessment work ou the Valley View mineral claim between "Beaver-  de'll and Curmi. They will a'so do a little  fishing on the side.  Considerable fruit from the ranches  along the Kettle river is being sold in the  city this season. In another year or two  the fruit growers of the Kettle river will  be able to supply all local demands iu  apples, plums and small fruits.  A large number of nails in the Greenwood sidewalks are getting above their  calling. Some effort should be made by  thc city fathers to keep them iu their  proper places. ��������� An aristocracy among  nails is really carrying things too far.  The grouse shooting will commence  next week, and then the provincial officers will have their chance. lie would  be a brave hold-up, indeed who would  stay iu the brush while Greenwood's  numerous sportsmen were after grouse.  Last week Jack Anderson was run over  and killed by a C. P. R. train near Anaconda. Jack was well known both here  and in Anaconda, and was modest and  tiiiassiiniiiig. lie was'one of the most  regular attendants at the K. of P. lodge  and joined the Doukks at Phoenix a year  Curtis and the children. A large number  of cili/cns were present at the ceiemony,  including members of Ihe school board,  Mayor liiiHli'ii;', Gold Commissioner Mc.  Mvnn mid City Clerk Taylor. Three  cheers wore given while the dag was being raised.  A. r>. Macfarkine, who has been editor  of the Boundary Creek Times for Ihe pest  thirteen months, leaves next week for  Vancouver to study law, The Ledge  like most ol the people of Greenwood  will be sorry to see Mr. Alacfarlane leave  the city, for during thc lime he has had  editorial charge of the Times the relations  between the two papers have been most  friendly, and the staff of The Ledge will  long remember thc nian'v courtesies extended to it by li'm. Mac is just what  the people of Ontario es-pcet every graduate of Toronto (luiversitv to be���������a gentleman. We wish him a brilliant career  in his profession, and believe it will be an  Jionest one.  Dispatches have been sent lo oulside-  papers, stating that there has been trouble  in T'lhoit, and that the striking machinists  arc likely to injure C. P. R. properly.  There js absolutely 110 truth in these  dispatches. The 'machinists are not  creating any disturbances, and if C. P. Improperly is injured it will he done by the  detectives in onler to hnlrl their jobs. It  is an old corporation game���������untruthful  dispatches published in subsidised papers.' Union men are too wise lo coin-  mitacts of violence during astrike.. They  are thoroughly disciplined. Fvery move  is carefully considered, and the executive of the Machinists' union know the  strong aud weak piaces in the armor of  the C. V. R. better than do the officials of  thc company.  The Myncaster.cricketers will play the  Greenwood eleven in thc city park Sunday next, 30th insl. A smoker will be  given in honor of the visitors iu Eagles'  hall Saturday evening at 9-o'clock, to  which all are invited. The Greenwood  eleven will be chosen from thc following:  J. L. Coles, S.

Iliniie, chairman of the school board. During the  raising of the ling the national anthem  was sung by C. G Curtis and the school  children. A short introductory speech  was made by Mr, llirnie, who called upon  Rev, F. V. Veiiables and Rev. M. 1). Mc-  Kec for addresses. After the speech making "The Maple Leaf" was sung by Mr,  Boundary Falls.  The public school was opened on August 24th for the next hi!f year, under  favorable auspices.

Mrs. Moore  gave a musical selection, after which refreshments consisting of ice cream, cake,  fruit and candy, were served to all present. The proceedings closed by the  hoisting of the Union Jack on thejiew  flag pole and the singing of the National  Anthem by all present. A fine new bell  was recently presented-to the school by  the Dominion Copper Co.' and proves of  great service.  A dance was held iu the Miners' hall  011 Monday night and was well attended.  The smelter daily expects to be opened  up again, having had to close owing to a  shortage of coke, when this little town  looks forward to a prosperous season.  Almost a Capture.  Last week, near Hall's ranch, Jo.-  Wilinshurst, road foreman, an:l hisg,'in������-  came across a couple of men heaiilo a  eainpfire. As soon as the road .gauge-ampin sight the two men took to the  brush, leaving part of their camp outfit. After the men not into the brush  they fired a couple of shors from a revolver, evidently to stop pursuit. The  provincial oflii;ers at Phoenix, Midway  and J'holt were notified, but uiifortn'-  nalc.ly none of thorn were able to ������-er  there except Ollicer Jensen of Kholt.  who did not believe any soorl could result, from taking- to the brush after tin;  suspicious characters Ollicer DiX'k  stji.hu'of Phoenix was vury busy that  day and could not get down tol'hnU.  anil Ollicer Aston of Mieway, was following- a clue that did not lead to Hall's  ranch. Thus, ii this gods had not been  iiiipropitious. the two men, possibly the  hold ups, might have, been captured.  However, ail the wagon roads and railway tracks leading to Phoenix, Kiiolt  and Mid way.'ire be-ins* carefully guard  ed. There arc not enough police to  guard tho. trails.  Later���������-The two '-men filtered thromrh  the scenery into Niagara Sunday,..calling at Alex Robinson's camp for grub,  and sleeping Sunday night iu Lequiniu*'-  Hawmill Meantime ilie:" police were  iriiardingall the more public highways,  over which any i-elf���������respecting' artillery  expert might be expectd to travel.  Monday morning- three horses, two  vehicles, four revolvers, four rifles, and  eight cartridge belts, with four constables attached to tlieni, started out  from airy Grand Forks up the North  Fork road. The two men wouldn'r  coino out of the brush, doubtless didn't  know they were expected to come out  into the open to be slaughtered, and, of  course, the. vehicle-* couldn't be taken  through the thick brush. Thus, owiiis*  to the fugitives not being posted in the  police etiquette of the West, a capture  was a vert lid and an imporiant clue has  gone south for the winter. Military  manoeuvring* cannot be Biiccessfully  done in Ihe brush, and possibly those  familiar wirli the hush would bo better  lilted to cope with the tactics of knights  of the. road.  Tuesday evening about nine o'clock  two masked men���������supposed to be the  two hold-ups who have been operating  iu the district���������entered C. I,. Thomet's  hotel at .VI id way. Just as they entered  the door he reached for his gun beneath  the bar arid be and the bandits commenced shooting. Two bullets struck  Thnniet and it is believed one of the  hold-ups was wounded. There are so  many conflicting slories.'v.-e print below  the evidence of William H. Bower, an  eye-witness,, which may be considered  fairly accurate, taking into consideration  the the natural excitement of a man not  used to gun plays. The evidence was  given at the coroner's inquest, held yesterday by Coroner Black with the following jury: T. J. Hardy (foreman), Jas.  Kerr, W. L. Melville, Win* Tippie, Geo.  Schulli, and S. A. Crowd!.  Wm. H. Bower, sworn. Am a banker,  reside in Grand Forks. I wasat Thomet's  hotel close to or a few minutes earlier  than 9:30 o'clock in  the evening.   De-  .

I was stand  ing at north end of bar looking from  door. I casually turned and saw two  masked men*. They had blue masks on.  Each had gnu pointing towards deceased.  Deceased was standing at end of bar  about eighteen feet from me. I saw a  motion of deceased to pick up pistol,  which was near his hand. Deceased  picked same up and fired instantaneously  iu direction of two masked men, who returned the lire instantaneously by two  shots. Can't say which man fired or  whether both fired. The man nearest  me covered me first for a moment, then  dropped his gun to his side, then both  went out of thc door quietly as they  came in. I made for the. wall nearest  the street so that it they shot back into  room I would not be exposed to fire.  Saw that they might still pot me, and  hurried to dining room,, deceased being  crouched" beside'door, X presuitit-d '��������� in position to fire if they showed up again. I  went into room past him, and said "don't  shoot: it is me." He didn't answer.  After passing him I went around to back  of sideboard, thinking it a place of safety,  and deceased was on his back bleeding  from wound in neck. McDougall and  Mrs. Thomet then rushed in.  To Jury���������Thomet was partly covered  by bar. Think Thomet tired another  shot, but it had no effect as men had  gone. After the two'shots firedjhy masked  men Thomet crouched down behind the  bar where he was standing, and, I believe, fired a shot from that position.  Then he backed into dining door, crouching down. The shot in dining room was  fired before I left wall. Deceased did  not speak after masked men appeared.  Deceased did not speak to men anil men  did not speak to him. Do not know if  masked men went round to front part and  shot into dining room. Do not know  who masked men were. I'oth about same  size. Seemed well-sized men iu dark  clothes. Eye-holes in line and guns  well iu line. Deceased [had gnu iu his  hand when I passed him going into  dining room.  Dr. J. E. Sp.iiikie examined thc body  and found two bullet wounds on the  body, oue on right side between 3rd and  -|th ribs, aud the other ou left side  through neck just above collar bone. The  latter was cause of death.  A number of the residents of the town  were on thc spot a  fuw minutes after the  shot, Will Melville being  the  first.    He  saw the men as .they were  making off.  It is thought the intention was to hold  up the Spokane, as one 01" thc  Saulter  brothers saw a couple  of men come to-  wauls the house three times from a vacant  lot   opposite,  but each  time   were   disturbed by people passing,   The Sauller.-.  were prepared with shot guns, one on  the verandah upstairs and the other in ' posin  the bar.   They expected the hold-up to  come off, and were waiting patiently for  it when they  heard the shots.   They at  once went  to Thomet's place, but were  too late to get a shot.   A posse of between   twenty  and   thirty  men,  under  W. J.  Devitt   of   Nelson,"   with   bloodhounds, started yesterday evening. J. R.  Jackson was out all  day yesterday on his  own account and, it is believed, was able  to give the police valuable information.  The late Chas.  L.  Thomet was born  near Berne, Switzerland,  and was a 48  years, 10 mouths aud 21  days old at time  of de:ith.    He .catue to this district  16  years ago.    I (chad been a hunter and  prospector before coming here.    Every:  one well acquainted with Charley Thomet  knew just what he would do in case of a  hold up,'arid he did it.   A brave man,  long familiar with  the  methods of the  gnu men of the West, and a contempt,  if not hatred, for the the "bad"   man,  he simply couldn't put up his hands.  The   robbers   doubtless   came   prepared  to   kill   and   knew, as   he knew,  what  would   be    the    result   if  11    hold-up  were atteutpled���������death  to one or both.  His   dying   moments showed   the cuol,  brave determination of the man.    Even  in dying he placed himself 'in a position  where he could do most execution.  Mrs Thomet anil family have the sympathy of the district in the loss or a brave,  noble-hearted husband aud father.  The funeral will be held iu Midway tomorrow (Fn.iayi at -2 o'clock.

McClure.]  ' When Mr. Bowser reached home tho  other evening he was carrying a bundle almost as large as a beer keg undo;  his arm, and when Mrs. Bowser met  him in the hall and demanded an explanation he said:  "Never mind until after dinner. 1  could have had it sent tip from the  store, but I was afraid it would not be  on hand for tomorrow morning."  "But you can just say what is in tho  bundle, cau't you?" she persisted.  "Not a word. In due time you shall  know all, and when you come to know  ] guess you won't think I'm such a  slow old poke after all."  During the dinner hour Mrs. Bowser's  curiosity   was  runniug' on  that  "\V'EI,L,   NOW,  BUT  WHAT DO  100  TILIXK  OF THIS ?"  bundle.    She figured that it was too  small for a new milk cow.  It didn't appear to contain a dozen  Leghorn chickens.  If there was a spring pig in there,  then he was keeping wonderfully  quiet  She had seen fire escapes come up,  but there were angles to the bundles.  If it was a flying machine, then it  was smaller than tho pictures she had  Keen in the papers.  There was no toot, toot, toot, to it,  and so it could not be a young automobile.  Discloses His Plans.  Mr. Bowser chuckled to himself and  looked benevolent and complacent and  held on to thc mystery until dinner  was over and they had returned to the  sitting room. Then ho lighted a cigar  arid walked around with his hands under his coattails and said:  "Mrs. Bowser, do you know why thc  Interior of this house must remind  every one that enters our doors of a  sawmill?"  "What do you mean by such a question as that?" she replied.  "Just exactly what I said. Look  iiround you. Do you see any art in the  carpet? Is there any in the furniture?  Is there any iu the wall paper? Look  np or look down, and you Iind the  same old thing. Up to date people  must wonder if we belong to the last  century."  "Aud who bought the furniture, the  carpets arid the wall paper, Mr. Bowser? I wanted to select those things,  as every wife should, but you wouldn't  have it that way. It must be what  you said or nothing."  "No back talk, woman. I knew your  tastes aud bought accordingly. I have  never been satisfied. Time and time  again 1 have fairly longed to live in a  barn for u change. There are times  when this sameness, this absence of  art, gets on my nerves uutil I want  to take the ax and smash things up."  "And now the conteuts of that bun-  ��������� die are goiug to change tho house into  a regular studio of art?" she asked.  "It is going to change the library, at  least, and then we will take room by  room aud go through the whole house.  You'shall now have your burniug curiosity gratified."  Then Mr. Bowser went down the hall  after the bundle* and brought it back  with him and tore off the wrapper aud  revealed eight double rolls of wall paper. He unrolled oue .of them for a  couple of yards and held it up and  said:  "Well, now, but what do you think  of this?"  Mrs. Bowser knew It to be a pattern  at least fifteen years old. It was a  cheap paper, such as might be found  in the oflice of, a village hotel. It was  n paper with pictures on "it���������pictures  of Shakespeare. Byron and Milton following each other in succession.  "Where ls the art?" she asked after  b moment's study.  "The art, the art? Woman, look  there���������and there���������aud there! Who was  Shakespeare? Who were thc others?  Could anything be more appropriate  for n library? Here Is art. Hero Is  ���������sentiment. Here Is genius. Why,  from the hour the paper is on the walls  I shall spend my evenings In the library looking at Jt." "  "Have you got a paperhanger to  put it on?"  "No, ma"nm, I haven't. The hand of  no sordid paperhanger shall defile  fill* paper. I shall hung It myself. I  Urivc arraugeu ro stay nome tomorrow  to do It." -  "I���������I wish you wouldn't," she replied, with a sigh,  "No doubt you do. But I shall, just  the same. You aro satisfied with the  old sawmill as it Is. If you had your  way you'd chuck this paper Into tho  furnace. Wait until tomorrow ulght,  however, aud perhaps I can bring  about a chunge of mind. See tho paper lis It looks on the wall before you  make up your- mlud to commit suicide." .  Mrs, Bowser said no more. Of what  use? Mr. Bowser would go ahead Just  the_8Biac. - She maaajzed to introdux-o  . another subject; and liter muttUi* was  dropped, although Mr. Bowser insisted  on unrolling all the ..other rolls aud  trailing them over the floor and sitting  there aud looking at them for half au  hour after she had gone to bed.  The art business wus entered upon  bright aud early next morning. When  llr. Bowser was all ready to begin  work his instructions to Lor were:  "Now, you keep out of the library. I  want no criticisms until the job is  complete."  Of course he should have cleaned  the walls of the old paper at the first  move, but of course he didn't. Of  course he should have had his paper  trim mod where he bought it, but as he  had not requested it tho thing was not  done. The cook had made him a pan  of paste, and ho was anxious to get to  work. He wanted tho art to begin to  show up so as to cheer him on.  In about fifteen minutes Mrs. Bowser made an excuse to outer tho library. Tho furniture had all bocu  shoved to one side, and tho first strip  of tho now paper was ou.  "Didn't I tell you not lo come in  here?" roared Mr. Bowser.  "Yes, but I'm looking for my thimble. Got a strip on, oh? Shakespeare,  Byrou and Milton look well standing  on their heads. How did you happen  to think of the improvement?"  Tho strip had been put on upside  down. Mr. Bowser would have denied  it, but tho evidence was too plain. He  nt first decided to charge Mrs. Bowser  with doing it to spite him, but changed  his mind and took her by tho shoulders  and pushed her out of the room. Thou  he pooled down the strip and put It on  right end up. lie had the third one  on when Mrs. Bowser opened the door  and asked if ho wanted any kindling  wood of the boy.  Paper Not on Straight.  "You   know   I   don't!"   ho' yelled.  "Have I got to take tho*"ax to keep  you out of hero?" *"*  "I didn't 'know, you know. Don't  you see that your second strip isn't on  plumb? The Shakcspoarcs, Byrons  and Miltons are loaning over as if they  had had too much drink."  Mr. Bowser started for her, but she  escaped, and after squinting at the  strip from every angle he pooled it  down and put it. up agaiu. He then  locked the door, and Mrs. Bowser  couldu't got in again. When lunch  was ready he locked the door behind  him, aud when she asked now his art  work -was coining on he didn't do any  boasting. In fact, ho seemed depressed  and puzzled. She offered to go iu and  trim paper for him, but he glared at  her and did not answer. Twice during  tho four hours succeeding lunch she  heard him fall from the stepladder  with a crash that shook the house, but  when she knocked on the door and  asked if he was dead he shouted out:  "Of course I'm not! And you keep  right away from here!"  At 5 o'clock the door was unlocked,  and he appeared with a smile on his  face and said:  "Madam Bowser, will you enter the  library and bo introduced to Mr. High  Art?"  She entered aud took a careful look  around and then sat down on thc  lounge and laughed till tho tears came.  In spite of his first mistake Mr. Bowser had three strips on wrong cud up.  There were two strips that bent to the  left and two to tho right. There were  twenty different places* where the old  paper showed along thc edges. It was  a museum In which Shakespeare, Byron and Milton appeared right side  up, wrong side up and any old way,  and they looked mighty lonesome about  it.  Mrs. Bowser laughed for five minutes, and when she finally looked up  Mr. Bowser had disappeared. Ho was  not upstairs. lie was not down cellar.  Ho had gone, .vanished, disappeared,  and ho and high art might " 'i* get  together In this vain world agaiu.  M. QUAD.  HE WAS  COLLECTING.  But His Smooth 8ohemo Didn't Work  With Her.

A New Railway Danger Signal.  Testimony in a recent distressing  iccident due to a grade crossing collision between a trolley car and a  passenger train showed that danger  signals are recklessly ignored sometimes. To make schedule time is the  object sot before motormen and engineers, and it is only fair to say that  occasionally the making of schedule  time by a train will limit thc liability  to accident through confusion. However, the practice of ignoring signals  has come to be a menace, and railroad  men have encouraged a new device  for signaling which also stops the  train or car signaled. If thc machine  operates effectively it will doubtless  be widely adopted.  The new signal cannot be ignored,  because "the car or train is at once  taken from tho control of its master  and compelled to stop. The only way  to start motion is for some one to  alight and release tho exterior chock,  fixed automatically at tho time the  signalman gives warning. Recently  an old railroad man declared in an  article printed in The Atlantic Monthly that the practice of ignorrng signals, by railroad men at certain times  has become a habit hard to eradicate.  Flo considered tho' practico responsible for many distressing accidents,  but yet trainmen continue to exorcise  discretion, if tho obstacle suggested  by the signal is seen the warning is  heeded, but if not speed is merely  slackened and no full stop mado. Jf  railway men will not obey rules as to  signals absolutely a device to check  their train in spite of them will be  found necessary, especially at pointa  wherp th������ diuiP"/ in orpjt'  W    N.

The English people, not alone  the workmgmen, but all classes, are  demtinding that something  be done  for  them, whatever happens  to imperialism, and the increased vote for  pronounced friends  of labor is only  one of many signs that times have  changed.  Herbert Asquith is a self made man,  a man of -the people. He was born a  democrat, trained a democrat and  made his own way in life without  powerful friends and without money  to back up his ambition.

But the  people can be influenced, not hy  theories, but by issues so framed  that an appeal is made .-to their  minds; and the man that can  frame up au issue that' appeals to  the people will get away' with both  tho orator and the good mixer.  Once people are set thinking for  themselves; they will govern Canada. But men like Martin Burrell  and Duncan Poss will never set  people thinking.

Often the country boy and his  bride are ridiculed because they  don't go through a lot of formalities when they get married. They  don't bother about formalities, but  get down to businefs at once. She  puts on her best dress and he is  proud of her; he holds her hand;  no one is working for wedding  presents; no foolishness, no rib-  bonss llower girls or ushers, No  singing of "O, Promise Me."���������  We ought to take off our hats to  the country boy and his bride.  Some consideration should be  shown a corouer's jury by a  coroner. Coroner's juries do not  receive remuneration for their services in this benighted province.  Men are taken away from their  business to serve on a jury, often  entailing considerable loss. The  evidence adduced is to enable the  jury to arrive at a verdict as to  cause of death, and no attempt  should be allowed to make such  evidence the basis for a civil ac-  ction. The only persons who  should be allowed lo examine witnesses are the coroner and jury.  It may be an act of courtesy on the  part of the coroner to allow lawyers  to examine witnesses at-an inquest,  but it is a discourtesy to the jury,  if not an insult to their intelligence.  It is uot the duty of a coroner to  incommode six jurors to allow two  lawyers to wrangle for hours. The  coroner and jurors only should  question  witnesses at an inquest.

Generally it makes a man mad  to have someone compliment him  upon his success and then add that  they can't understand it.  The Kootenay Cigar Co. of Nelson have in the Royal Seal a cigar  that is known and smoked between  the wheat country and the blue  Pacific.  Tho Ledge, 62 a year.  * That the B. C. Copper company  have   not���������been taking necessary  precautions . lo safeguard the lives  of their employees,   was evidently  the opinion   of the coroner's jury  at the investigation into the death  of little Eunice Dimmick last week.  The company have a number of  cottages at the Mother Lode mine  which   they   rent  to   employees.  That these cottages are in a danger  zone  is "proved  not only' by the  evidence at the inquest, but also  hy the fact that tho company have  built   block houses   as   places of  lvfuge when  blasts are to be put  off. A whistle is blowu three times  when a blast is to be   put off.    If  the occupants of the cottages do  not hear the whistle,  uo further  warning is given  them.    The officials of the compauy do not see  that the people are out of the cottages   and   in   the block houses.  Apparently no one is detailed to  personally see that the occupants  of the cottages are in a place ef  safety.   No one would accuse the  manager   of the company or his  subordinates , of   deliberately   neglecting to safeguard the lives of  employees,   but the fact remains  that the company are reciving rent  for houses which the manager must  know aro in a dangerous position,  and in which a fatalty may occur  through    heavy    blasting.     The  company  should  pull   down   the  cottages and  refiuild them out of  the danger zone. ; The  coroner's  jury did not,   we believe, go far  enough in uot recommending that  the cottages be removed to a place  of safety.

"    -  Why Not Buy Here.  As an illustration of the business  methods of the C. P. R. and tho Great  Northern it is only necessary to contrast  their mode of securing supplies for their  survey parties The G. N. bought all  its supplies from Princeton storekeepers'  while the C. P. Ii. does not buy a  mouthful from them, preferring to ship  in from outside points. By thus skimping, " Tim '' Shaughnessy may save a  fraction of a cent on hulk articles, but  he loaes when people, who don't forget,  want to travel. In contradistinction,  'Jim'Hill bought all his survey supplies here, and his engineers, with their  wives and families, were encouraged to  locate here. The C. P. R. is the spoilt  child of Canada���������bonus-stuffed, pay-fed,  always ready to grab a slice of land or  snatch a plum aff the national tree. The  V.,V.& E. is notabonussed road, every  foot of its right-of-way being honestly  acquired and fairly paid for. Ranches  and coal land owned by Great Northern  people have been paid' for to the entire  satisfaction of all those selling; no attempt at squeezing land owners, storekeepers or anybody was made. Princeton is here to do business. If the 0. P. R.  ,does not want to trade with its citizens  there can be only ono logical policy for  them to cany out.���������Similkameen Star.

At Nelson's Fruit Fair. *'  Friendly contests of skill and intelligence are always invigorating-auiong a  people who live by competition and rivalry in business and profession. All people glory in contests among themselves,  and in matching their powers with each  other for the sport there is iii it, and for  mutual benefit. Such contests bring out  the best there is in people, and educate  them to a standard of excellence difficult  to attain by any other means.  This frieddly rivalry may be ' stated as  one of the leading objects of tlie Nelson  Fruit Fair. It is not confined to individuals and local districts only, but embraces  all the well known fruit and .vegetable  areas of the province. Each and all are  invited to compete for the very liberal  prizes offered, whether it be as individuals or as'a community���������or both. As well  as the opportunity of contest, there.is  afforded the better opportunity of viewing " the other fellow's" exhibit, and  profiting by'lhe interchange of ideas and  methods in culture.  While it way be argued that the Nelson  Fruit Fair is limited iu its usefulness to a  particular section only, the Tact remains  that il attracts exhibitors from the provinces east of the Rockies and -from south  of the International boundary line, and  this year thc competitors. from these  points will be greater in number than  heretofore.  As an educational feature, the fair,,no  matter where held, has always been acknowledged to be superior to an}' other.  Much of the success attendant on the  efforts of thc Nelsdn association has been  due lo this fact. Scotcs'of people have  profited by the knowledge gained and insight obtained into the proper methods of  fruit and vegetable culture, and the preparing of the products for market, as exemplified at past fruit faiis "in Nelson.  Aud it is safe to presume, as the institution advances, many scores more will be  educated along these lines, and will be  thankful for the opportunities afforded lo  gain valuable information suited to their  needs. '   ,  Reader, .remember the sixth annual  Nelson Fruit Fair, to be held at Nelson  ou Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and  Saturday, September 23, 24, 25 and 26.  four solid days of sight-seeing, education  and amusement. This year will surpass  all previous fairs, m every line, and you  cannot afford to miss it.
